🏝My skin type/concerns- I have very dry skin in the winter and a normal skin type during the summer! Occasionally I will get bad acne throughout the year, I also have bad redness and hyperpigmentation! 🏝this review is for products I have tried to resolve dry skin! ✅worked ❌didn’t work 🏝Product list: ✅drunk elephant b hydra- I discovered this product last May when I received the drunk elephant littles set for my birthday! I have been using this for almost a year now! I never use this serum alone! I pick out my regular serum or oil that I’m using that day and I mix this in with anything I chose to use! I never use any serum or oil without mixing this in because it gives me an amazing extra boost of hydration! ✅Fresh night cream- I discovered this moisturizer from a friend recommending this to me after trying it and telling me how much it helped her dry skin! I have been using this for about a year and a half! I always use this at night because I know when I wake up this leaves my skin super moisturized and very soothed for when I start the day! This cream is so thick but still lightweight that it gives me the perfect hydration my skin needs, and it doesn’t just soak into your skin right away! ✅Laneige cream skin toner- I saw this all over social media when it came out, and when I saw some reviews for it I knew it would be perfect for my skin and I immediately bought it! I have been using this for about 6 months! I also only use this at night and whenever I use it I don’t use a serum or oil as well! I just use this because it gives my skin extra hydration that it would be to much to use all of the other products! I always use it right before applying moisturizer! The very thick consistency of this is super helpful before going to bed because I know I will wake up with super moisturized skin! ❌Glow recipe watermelon moisturizer- I discovered this moisturizer just from browsing the Sephora website when I came across this and I love anything watermelon, and it claimed to be a solution for dry skin! I have been using this for about 9 months! I only used this moisturizer in the morning because of its also brightening properties, the first time I used this I noticed it soaked into my skin super fast but so I started to wonder if this was right for me! I used it a few more times and I realized it wasn’t giving my skin the hydration it needed, my skin would start to have dry spots on my face during the day after I used this! I don’t recommend this product for people with really dry skin!GLOW RECIPE - Watermelon Pink Juice Oil-Free Moisturizer DRUNK ELEPHANT - B-Hydra Intensive Hydration Serum LANEIGE - Cream Skin Refiner fresh - Lotus Anti-Aging Night Moisturizer

🌸belif aqua bomb dupe! 🌸 The Belif true cream aqua bomb is an ultra light weight oil free gel cream that instantly cools and refreshes skin while providing intensive hydration! It is perfect for oily and combo skin types. It can be solutions for oiliness, dryness, and pores! The texture of this is a thick gel cream that is light blue in color, and smells so fresh. I absolutely love this moisturizer and the brand Belif it self. This moisturizer does everything that it says and helps with oiliness very well! The ingredients in this help neutralize skin damaging free radicals, improves skin elasticity, and minimizes the appearance of pores. This was recommended to me by a friend and I picked it up about a year ago and have been using it ever since, and will definitely be repurchasing! It is very hydrating and didn’t break me out, I saw great results in my pores and oiliness after a couple days of using this. I would recommend this to anyone looking for a light weight gel moisturizer to help with oiliness or the look of pores, you would enjoy this a lot! It is worth buying and is $38 for 1.68oz which is a good amount of product! 🌸The bliss drench and quench moisturizer is a cream to water hydrator for all day moisture! This ultra-lightweight moisturizer transforms into water on contact, surging skin with more than 10,000 marine micro-droplets for intense, yet weightless, all-day hydration. It can be solutions for oiliness, dryness, and redness. The texture is a very thick gel cream that is very cooling on the skin! Perfectly balanced hydration disappears instantly into the skin, no greasy or heavy feeling. I really love using this moisturizer when my skin is really oily it is very good at oil control! My skin immediately feels soft, healthy and refreshed, within 4 weeks skin's moisture barrier is improved. I have been using this for about a year because it was recommended to me by a friend! It is very hydrating and didn’t break me out! It had great results and helped with my skins oiliness a lot. I would definitely recommend this to anyone who is looking for a fantastic oil control product, it is hypoallergenic, dermatologist tested, non-comedogenic, and cruelty-free. This product is definitely worth purchasing for $20 for 1.7oz! 🌸The Bliss drench and quench moisturizer is an amazing dupe for the Belif true cream aqua bomb!! The textures are super similar and are both gel and very hydrating! And it Is like $20 cheaper which is amazing! The product is both blue as well, and they have the same fresh smell!bliss - Drench & Quench Moisturizer belif - The True Cream Aqua Bomb

Ehhhhh— My feelings for this dry shampoo. It does do the trick... HOWEVER!!! It shows up white in your hair. My biggest pet peeve. It almost makes it look more dirty. On the pro side, it smells amazing and it does soak up all the oils. I would recommend for light blondes because of the light almost white residue it leaves!! Definitely try a tester or travel size before purchasing. Batiste - Bastie Dry Shampoo

Drunk Elephant Firming Eye Serum
Drunk Elephant Firming Eye Serum
DRUNK ELEPHANT - Shaba Complex Firming Eye Serum The Shaba complex is a firming eye serum formulated with black tea ferment and copper peptides that work together to support a firmer-looking appearance around the eyes, and help slow down aging before it occurs. It also contains Co-Q10 which is a powerful antioxidant known to prevent free-radical damage which leads to aging. This eye serum has a very silky texture and feels soothing on contact, almost feels like rubbing a piece of silk under your eyes! The texture is definitely very unique. I have used Shaba on and off for over a year and I must say it’s a lovely experience. Since I am still young, I definitely don’t have any intense signs of aging to be able to notice a huge difference in fine lines and whatnot, but I do believe that prevention is KEY when it comes to aging. It’s very difficult to reverse damage once its done, but preventing it from occurring in the first place is why I like to incorporate anti-aging products in my routine. I feel like Shaba definitely makes my eyes appear more lifted and contoured with consistent use. I would recommend this to anyone looking for a luxurious eye cream that can help prevent signs of aging around the eyes. The biggest downfall is definitely the price, as it is $60 which is really steep for a 15ml product. The best thing about it is that it does last a while since the tiniest amount of eye cream goes the longest way, but there are many others on the market that are cheaper. For the price alone I give Shaba 4 stars.

Saturday Skin Probiotic Sheet Mask
Saturday Skin Probiotic Sheet Mask
SATURDAY SKIN - Cotton Cloud Probiotic Power Mask This sheet mask is packed with probiotics and prebiotics for a potent boost in radiance and overall health of skin. The probiotics work to boost skin vitality, while the prebiotics activate the full power of the probiotics. Probiotics are really beneficial for the skin by creating a sort of protective shield that keeps bad organisms and bacteria out of your skin. Think of it as a shield on your skins surface that keeps the bad stuff out! They can target a number of skin concerns from acne, reduce inflammation & flare ups, and prevent premature aging. I have used a few of these masks over the last year and I really enjoy using them. I reach for the probiotic mask when I feel like my skin has been having a lot of weird issues such as congestion, inflammation, and overall dullness. Basically, when my skin feels out of whack I can count on this mask to bring my skin integrity back. Another benefit of this mask is that it fits my face very well. For me that’s a pretty important factor about a sheet mask because it really bothers me when they’re slipping and sliding all over your face because they’re too big. But this one fits perfect and seems to stay in one place! This sheet mask is a pretty average price around $6, and gives lovely results! I would totally recommend it to anyone looking for a good refreshing way to rejuvenate the skin’s barrier.

Dr. Jart Cicapair Moisturizer for Sensitive Skin
Dr. Jart Cicapair Moisturizer for Sensitive Skin
Dr. Jart+ - Cicapair™ Tiger Grass Cream The Dr. Jart Cicapair Tiger Crass Cream is a heavyweight moisturizer targeted towards sensitive, dry skin, and is also supposed to help with skin concerns such as redness, rosacea and eczema. It contains Jartbiome which is created to help strengthen, balance, and improve skin’s defences against irritation and damage. It also contains Centella Rx to soothe and protect sensitive skin, and cicabond (my absolute fav skincare ingredient) which helps repair and rebuild damaged skin. This cream is a thicker consistency as it is meant to provide extreme hydration and nourishment, however they also sell this formula in a gel consistency if you prefer something more lightweight. While I do have combo/oily skin, I absolutely love this rich cream. Due to the hyper-sensitivity of my skin, I believe it is imperative to give your skin the nourishment that it needs, especially when you have skin concerns such as rosacea and eczema like I do. I use this moisturizer every night before bed and wake up with the most soothed, even looking, hydrated, and supple skin. This is something I will be restocking in my routine for quite some time! I would recommend this product to anyone with sensitive skin, and while it is on the expensive side ($48), I think it is completely worth it since it really works.

NOT A DUPE!!🧴

They aren’t du
NOT A DUPE!!🧴 They aren’t dupes but I like them both. These products are on two ends of the spectrum when it comes to price but I wouldn’t say they are as opposing when it comes to results. I’ve used both for a long time and get similar results when using either of them after applying actives and before a moisturiser. They are both humectants with hyaluronic acid and Vitamin B5. Looking at the first 5 ingredients for comparison sake: The Ordinary is a simple formula made up of Water, Sodium Hyaluronate, Sodium Hyaluronate Crosspolymer, Panthenol, Ahnfeltia Concinna Extract, and Glycerin etc. But at a basic level it has similar emollients and humectants to B-hydra. It has a fine texture and dries quickly so it’s important to seal it in with moisturiser- it’s nice and light and does the job in the morning. I’d say it’s more suitable for oily skin than B-Hydra, however some people do find it a bit sticky. drunkelephant’s B-hydra Contains Water, Coconut Alkanes, Ammonium Acryloyldimethyltaurate/VP Copolymer, Glycerin and Pentylene Glycol etc. Despite having some of the same humectants/ emollients it has a more advanced formula and a longer inci list claiming to bring more to the table for example with texture improving ingredients like pineapple ceramides. I feel it’s less sticky and slightly more hydrating on its own, taking longer to dry down. Final thoughts? I prefer the drunkelephant but I would still rate them both equally at 7.5/10 considering the large difference in price £44 vs £5.90. I would recommend getting whichever is in your budget, either one is a good choice in my opinion.
