Product claims vs my thoughts!
The Saturday skin wide awake brightening eye cream is a hydrating eye cream with date seed extract that illuminates and refreshes the eye area! It can help dryness, dark circles, and puffiness under the eyes. The texture of this is a very lightweight cream, that is so cooling under the eyes but moisturizes so nice! I purchased this eye cream about 3 months ago in a set with 3 other products from Saturday skin because when this set came out I knew I had to get it, and when I tried it I immediately fell in love. I use it so often and will definitely repurchase after I run out! It is so hydrating, didn’t break me out, and I saw great results in my dark circles when I woke up the morning after using it. I would certainly recommend this to others because it is so amazing and really helps with dark circles and feels so light and creamy under the eyes! It is $46 for 1.01oz which is a great size because you literally only need a little dot to cover both under eyes! This product claims to get rid of ✅dryness under the eyes and this is a true statement! My eyes feel so moisturized the night after using this and it has turned into one of my favorite eye creams! The next claim is ✅dark circles, this really takes care of any dark circles I have in the morning and throughout the day! It is very brightening and is amazing under concealer! The third claim is ✅puffiness, this product works so well because it is great at illuminating and has amazing ingredients to solve it! The last claim is ❎firmness of my skin, and this didn’t change at all! The firmness is my under eyes stayed the same and I never saw any difference, but other then that this is an amazing eye cream!SATURDAY SKIN - Wide Awake Brightening Eye Cream

The Boscia cactus water moisturizer is an ultra light weight fast absorbing moisturizer that gives thirsty skin a sip of instant hydration for a soft, smooth, and simple complexion! It can be solutions for dryness, dullness, uneven texture, and loss of firmness and elasticity. The texture of this is a refreshing thick gel that feels so cooling on your face. I have used this for about 10 months and really like it in the summer time because after being in the sun it feels so refreshing to put this on after. I got it in a set with two other boscia items that I also love! It is very hydrating, didn’t break me out, and gave me awesome results with my dry skin! I would recommend this to all skin types and to try out definitely in the summer for the really nice cooling effect! It is worth the $38 for 1.61oz of product that will last a while! The Kiehls calendula serum infused water cream is a weightless water cream infused with concentrated calendula serum! It can be solutions for dryness, dullness, and uneven texture! It is best for normal to oily skin types. The texture of this is a lightweight gel-cream, that feels like a drink of water on your face! I absolutely love this cream but is definitely geared toward oily skin types! I received it as a promo code on Sephora about 5 months ago and it is amazing! It is very hydrating, didn’t break me out, and I didn’t see big results because my skin is on the dryer side and this is geared more for oily skin types! I would recommend this to others because it does have an amazing texture and feeling on the face it also smells so fresh. It is worth the $50 for 1.7oz for people with oily skin! The tatcha water cream is recommended for oily, normal to oily, pores, and anti-aging!! It is an oil-free , anti-aging water cream that releases a burst of skin-improving Japanese nutrients, powerful botanicals and optimal hydration for pure, poreless skin! It works because it is a unique water-burst cream breaks upon application to deeply deliver treatment benefits, hydrating without leaving skin sticky or greasy. It’s powerful ingredient, Japanese Wild Rose, visibly tightens pores and smoothes skin texture!! Also it is, Non-comedogenic, Non-irritating, Non-sensitizing, Dermatologist tested, and Cruelty-free! Additionally, formulated without, Mineral oil, synthetic fragrances, sulfate detergents, parabens, and phthalates!! I love this because it is great for the summer since it does not leave my skin oily or greasy! It is a bit pricey but if you have had issues with pores or any other of its benefits I think it is worth it! It is $68 for 1.7 ounces. It also smells very good and the texture feels very cool to the touch! I think it is worth it, the tatcha water cream is amazing and is so worth the price, they have amazing ingredients and antioxidant properties, and they are always right on there claims! The Boscia is also pretty good and is at a great price point to! That is my second favorite by far! The Kiehls is definitely not worth $50 at all! It is no where near as good as tatcha! It makes my skin feel oily and greasy and just doesn’t do anything good for my dry skin! But the Boscia is an amazing affordable option of the tatcha water cream! boscia - Cactus Water Moisturizer Kiehl's - Calendula Serum-Infused Water Cream TATCHA - The Water Cream

Batiste Dry Shampoo ⭐️⭐️⭐️
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 - Tropical Dry Shampoo Coconut & Exotic

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 - 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 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 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.
