My empties and its replacements 👀
Hi everyone!!! I wanted to round up a few products that I’ve used and emptied (or nearly emptied) in the past few months and share a few thoughts and what I’ve replaced them with 👀. All these products got the BOOT from my skincare routine - not bc they sucked but bc I’ve want to try something new and see what all the rage is about in these products I’ve picked up! Toner ￼So I recently learned from@skindocminaand@Culskinthat toner isn’t necessary 😂 but I’ve seen really great things about the Neogen real ferment essence. My favorite k-beauty bloggers mentioned it and so I wanted to try. So far, I really love the texture of the toner because it’s not extremely watery where it slips right off, but it’s got a littttle bit of density to it. The indie Lee toner is alright, no complaints! Really love the spritzer bottle but the product itself is average IMO! Moisturizer ￼ive been really on the hunt for a nice, rich moisturizer for the winter months. This indie Lee moisturizer was just alright for me. It has a little bit of a pepperminty smell but it doesn’t really run into the skin quite well. It leaves a white cast if it’s not worked into the skin. I’ve seen so many rave reviews of this moisturizer from the likes of Hyram and others, so I had to try! I haven’t opened yet but will let you know 😀 Sunscreen ￼Sunscreen is CRUCIAL everyday, every season. I’ve used up my Supergoop completely and though it feels nice on the skin, I almost feel paranoid that it’s clogging my pores since it acts like a primer as well. Because I’m not wearing makeup these days, I want a more light, breathable sunscreen. I’ve heard this Klairs one is amazing, so I had to try! Have you tried any of these? How did you like them??
To our least favorite thing to come out of 2020
⠀ You’re a pest, no one invited you and you have definitely exceeded your stay! ⠀ This year I have found myself purchasing products to prevent acne more than I ever have. I thought I would share some of my #top2020skincare products that have helped me kick mascnes a** the most. ⠀ 🍷 @theinkeylist salicylic acid cleanser: this cleanser not only gets rid of my acne spots but it does it without drying out or irritating my skin. THE inkey LIST - Salicylic Acid Acne + Pore Cleanser ⠀ 🍷 @skinfixinc triple lipid peptide cream: the biggest thing when getting rid of mascne is to remember to keep your skins barrier hydrated. We are using so many bhas and acids that it can dry out your skin. I love this moisturizer because not only is it hydrating but it includes a peptide protein blend to fight free radicals as well as vital lipids fo keep your skin glowing and smooth. skinfix - Barrier+ Triple Lipid-Peptide Cream ⠀ 🍷 @farmacybeauty deep sweep is my favorite bha toner to exfoliate and clean out my pores. FARMACY - Deep Sweep 2% BHA Pore Cleaning Toner With Moringa + Papaya ⠀ 🍷 @innisfreeusa sunscreen: sunscreen is always the most important step. It not only protects your skin from the sun but it also prevents your hyperpigmentation spots from getting darker. If your not using sunscreen you might as well throw your entire skincare routine in the trash. innisfree - Daily UV Defense Sunscreen SPF 36 ⠀ 🍷 Wine: when all else fails pour yourself a glass of wine, get yourself a cute Christmas mask (to hide the mascne of course) and pray that this pandemic is over soon! ⠀ What’s your favorite product that has helped you combat mascne?! Mine is definitely the wine! Barefoot Pinot Grigio
InnBeauty Project set
I picked up the InnBeauty Project set they have on their website during their July 4th sale and I’m kinda not impressed guys. The only two things I love from this set is the lip oil I shared on my last post and the cute red bag it comes with. Foaming cleanser- it’s like it dissolves on your face or something I tried putting a lot on but half of it goes away so it doesn’t feel like my skin is really clean so not a good cleanser Daily moisturizing cream- I gave it a couple stars because it doesn’t have bad ingredients and it’s scent free but guys!!! It has freakin glitter in it!! Can skincare brands please tell us when they put glitter in a skincare product to give us a “glow”. I did notice it does contain citrus in there too which sensitizes your skin over time and I’m not about that. The face mist- at first sounded good I’m always down for a face mist why not it has electrolytes in it which is good but it contains witch hazel, anyone a fan of skincare by Hiram (am I spelling that right?) knows what I’m talking about! Witch hazel is not good for skin, it dries it out not moisturizes it. Big no no! But a couple points because it is cooling and refreshing. The whole set/line is not highly rated by me. Like I said their lip oil is the most amazing thing I’ve bought in my life so that’s 5/5 and the cute red bag is to die for! But the rest? No thank you, I’d feel bad about spending so much money on this set if I didn’t get those two good things out of it

Travel-size skincare 🧳
As I’ve been trying to downsize my collection of stuff, I’ve also been trying to keep my packing to a minimum & travel-size skincare really comes in clutch for that. I got this Woodlot sample kit back at my old work, and even though I don’t use most of this line on the regular, it’s really helpful for a 3-night getaway somewhere nearby (respecting the pandemic life) I cleanse with my favourite WOODLOT - Nourishing Cleansing Balm (I have this in full size too for heavy makeup or irritated skin days). It’s perfect for getting city grime of the day off my lovely face & cutting through stubborn makeup quickly. Really like to massage, melt it into my skin thoroughly. Then I spray some of the WOODLOT - Nourishing Facial Toner in my hand (4 star because I’m not a big fan of rose scents) and then add a few drops of WOODLOT - Nourishing Facial Oil (which I also use on my hair sometimes for a likkle sheen) and mix the two together on my face for better absorption. Boom! That’s how minimalism goes ✨ How much skincare do you bring with you when travelling for a few days?

earthtoskin-Honey Manuka Calming Face Cleanser
PLANT Apothecary Reset Organic Oil-Free Makeup Remover🌿 This is essentially a micellar water, and I mean, it does exactly what it says; removes all your makeup! I dump a generous amount on some cotton pads, and my mascara, blush, everything, comes right off. The Rose geranium + lemongrass scent is subtle and lovely 😌 Wash Your Face Organic Aloe Face Wash🌿 A USDA organic, gentle, non-stripping and lightly sudsing face wash. It’s fragrance, paraben, sulfate and synthetic-free, and it’s suitable for sensitive skin types too. I’ve been liking it as a second cleanse after using the micellar water 💦👌🏻 Fresh Organic Toning Face Mist🌿 My favorite product of all these 3! Ugh, where to begin. That cucumber and rosewater combo is really what gets me the most, honestly. It smells so nice and it is just SO refreshing 🤤 Exactly what you need for some good summertime refreshment. Cucumber, rosewater and aloe vera are there to soothe, and witch hazel and lemongrass are meant to tone and retreat. It can be used as a toner, face mist, makeup setter. Love!

From Green Cleansing Oil
I tried 4 different types of oil cleansers in 2019, From Green Cleansing Oil by Purito is by far one of my favorite oil cleansers. Is such a light oil that dissolves sunscreen,makeup & skin waste in the pores. Is such a gentle and soothing oil cleanser and doesn’t cause skin or eye irritation. This oil consists of 5 natural oils ▪️Olive Oil ▪️Sunflower Oil ▪️Jojoba Seed Oil ▪️Sweet Almond Oil ▪️Grape Seed Oil This product is emulsified so when washing this oil cleanser off, the cleanser turns into a milky consistency.

My Favorite Cream Cleansers
🧼 Cream Cleansers are one of my favorite skincare products to purchase and try out. Why? I don’t know but boy do I love them. I have combo/dry skin and all of these cleansers leave my skin feeling clean and nourished and are lovely to use. (From left to right) 🧼 Kate Somerville Goat Milk Cleanser - Formulated with manuka honey and goat milk this is a great cleanser for soothing and calming irritation. This has a rich, creamy consistency and lathers beautifully on the skin. This is probably my favorite cleanser of all time. 🧼 Holifrog Tashmoo Water Lily Nourishing Milky Wash - This cleanser has a whole slew of barrier strengthening, hydrating and nourishing ingredients such as water lily, lotus flower, panthenol, blue-green algae, apricot kernel oil, sunflower seed oil, sodium PCA...the list just goes on and on. I honestly don’t know if I’ve ever seen such thoughtful ingredients lists in cleansers as I do with Holifrog. This one has a little more slip to it than the Kate Somerville and doesn’t lather quite as much and I LOVE that it comes in a pump. 🧼 Blume Daydreamer Organic Face Wash - This one has a similar consistency to the Holifrog cleanser and again I love that it comes in a pump. This cleanser contains soothing chamomile and antioxidant rich grapefruit extract. 🧼 Milk Makeup Vegan Milk Cleanser - I’ve been reaching for this one the most lately. This is a LOVELY cream cleanser. A rich cream cleanser that lathers nicely and has a good slip to it. This cleanser contains antioxidant rich grapeseed oil and fog milk as well as soothing oat milk and Milk’s patented hydrating Desert Milk.
