Saturday skin brand spotlight!

The Saturday skin pretty pop probiotic power whipped cream is a soft and luxurious whipped cream with probiotics activated by probiotics for healthy and radiant looking skin! It can be solutions for fine lines, wrinkles, dryness, loss of firmness and elasticity. The texture of this is so creamy and thick and it feels like you are putting whipped cream on your face, it is so soft and dense and does a great job at moisturizing my face! I have been using this for about 3 months and I purchased it from a friend recommending it to me, and I fell in love. It didn’t make me break out, it’s so so hydrating, and I saw great results in my skins moisture level! I would definitely recommend this to anyone looking for an amazing moisturizer for dry or oily skin. It is more on the pricier side but is so worth it! This is why this is one of my favorite products from Saturday skin! Another one of my favorite products 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! One of my least favorite products from the brand is the Saturday skin bright potion probiotic power serum it is a potent serum enriched with encapsulated probiotics activated by probiotics creating a powerful solution for luminous and healthy looking skin! This serum can be used for normal, dry, oily, and combination skin types. This can be solutions for acne prone skin, dryness, and fine lines, wrinkles, dullness, and uneven texture! The texture of this is a thick gel/cream that has little probiotics in it that dissolve in your skin! I have used this for about 3 months and got it in a set with other mini Saturday skin products and really havent seen any results with this serum! This serum didn’t break me out but is really no better then any of my other serums. This product is definitely not worth purchasing for the price of $51 for 1oz because it is not worth it when there are way better cheaper versions out there! I really do love most Saturday skin products though and would definitely recommend trying out this incredible brand, just because some products didn’t work out for me they may be amazing for you! I found this brand about 6 months just from all the hype on instagram! They then came out with a set with four of there products in mini size on Sephora and I immediately got it, it was very well priced as well and I fell in love with all there products!SATURDAY SKIN - Wide Awake Brightening Eye Cream with Avocado

Product Mentioned
When your skin literally looks like an 🍊 peel..
🍊Orange Peel Skin? Wtf? ”Orange Peel Skin” is referring to a texture of the skin - when pores appear large, more dimpled, + even lax/droopy. People with this texture (🙋‍♀️) can never get makeup to look right! 🍊What causes it? SUM DAMAGE ☀️🔥🆘 - caused by years of unprotected exposure to UV rays. Sun damage promotes + speeds up the aging process of our skin. Slowing down the production of collagen + elastin, the stuff that is the glue holding our pores together, causes pores to appear larger and saggy or stretched. 🧐AGE - Aging affects our skins production of collagen + elastin in the same way as sun damage. They slow down. Derms say this usually starts happening in our 20s + we need to take preventative care starting then. Aging also slows our cell turnover rate, making it likely that cells will build up around the pores, enhancing their shadows and making them appear larger 💦DEHYDRATION/Compromised skin barrier -!Dehydration is just plain bad for the skin, obviously. But when our skin is in this condition, our sebaceous glands overproduce, leaving a cellophane-like, rough+shiny sheen to our skin - increasing the appearance of texture + pores. 👩‍🔬What can we do? Remember that actual pore size is fully determined by genetics, and pores do not shrink or close or open. However, there are steps we can take to reduce the appearance of pores ☺️ 💦Hydrate + Moisturize - use hydrating serums & moisturizers with good ingredients like Hyaluronuc Acid, Glycerin, ceramides, peptides, oils with omega fatty acids, panthenol, aloe, + great occlusives to lock in that moisture  💪Retinol - using an OTC or prescription strength retinol will increase the rate of skin cell turnover. Meaning you will speed up the process of shedding those dead skin cells and pushing all the gunk in your skin + to the surface to leave. This leaves behind healthier, plumper, less damaged skin. Make sure you use retinols safely!  ✨Exfoliating Treatments - Using a mild exfoliating leave on treatment in toner or serum form every day or using stronger wash off treatments 1-3x a week will smooth out texture. Using a combination of AHA or PHA with BHA will be effective as they work on different levels of our skin.  🐄Collagen Supplements - because the loss of collagen is at least partially responsible for orange peel skin, replenishing collagen levels in our body will plump skin. Collagen is too large of a molecule to penetration the epidermis when applied topically, thus to reap benefits taken supplements is the most effective way to encourage collagen production Products I use- GLOW RECIPE - Watermelon Glow PHA+BHA Pore-Tight Toner GLOW RECIPE - Avocado Melt Retinol Sleeping Face Mask SATURDAY SKIN - Bright Potion Probiotic Power Serum PAULA'S CHOICE - Skin Perfecting 2% BHA Liquid Exfoliator HERBIVORE - Prism 20% AHA + 5% BHA Exfoliating Glow Facial

Niacinamide For Acne, Dark Marks and More!
Hailed as the new "it" and “holy grail” ingredient in skincare, niacinamide is an active form of Vitamin B3.  It's available in many skin care products and one of the best you can add to your skincare routine! Not all formulas and concentrations are the same or function the same ways. So here are the top products I’ve tried and all about how niacinamide works: PAULA'S CHOICE - Niacinamide 20% Treatment ✨Improves chronic bumpy skin/orange-peel texture ✨Reduces appearance of sagging stretched pores ✨Brightens blotchy tone, fades post-acne marks ✨Fights advanced signs of aging  PAULA'S CHOICE - 10% Niacinamide Booster ✨Reduces rough texture ✨Minimizes appearance of large pores ✨Brightens a dull complexion  ✨Fights fine lines and early signs of aging  SKINCEUTICALS - Discoloration Defense Skin Discoloration Serum ✨Lightens and improves appearance of dark spots ✨Brightens skin tone and texture  The Ordinary - Niacinamide 10% + Zinc 1% ✨Reduces acne and dark spot appearance ✨Reduces pore congestion ✨Balances oil production in skin PETER THOMAS ROTH - Pro Strength Niacinamide Discoloration Treatment ✨Fades discoloration and post-acne marks ✨Brightens and repairs uneven skin tone  SATURDAY SKIN - Bright Potion Probiotic Power Serum ✨Improves skin barrier protection, hydration and tone ✨Nourishes skin and promotes luminous appearance   #Apostrophe - Azelaic Acid 15% + Niacinamide 4% Formula[products]#[FiveStars] ✨Smooths fine lines and wrinkles  ✨Improves skin barrier protection and moisture  ✨Brightens skin and fades dark marks  PEACE OUT - Microneedling Dark Spot Brightening Dots ✨Micro-needle patches for faster results  ✨Lightens appearance of dark spots ✨Dark patches become clear and even How niacinamide works: ✨Skin friendly - every skin type can use it ✅Best for acne-prone skin, oily skin, dry skin, combination skin, sensitive skin 🧪Works by inhibiting oil production skin which is beneficial for acne-prone and oily skin types. As a cream or serum, it’s non-irritating and very tolerable compared to other skin treatments. This makes it favorable for people with dry or sensitive skin. ✨Anti-inflammatory - skin calming  ✅Best for - treating inflammatory acne, acne rosacea, skin redness 🧪Works to inhibit inflammatory pathway elements within the body. This  subsequently prevents migration of products involved in inflammation to the skin! As a result, skin becomes less inflamed and irritated.  ✨Brightening - a miracle dark mark corrector ✅Best for - dark marks, post-acne hyperpigmentation, dull complexion 🧪Works to inhibit the transfer of skin's light absorbing pigment, melanin, into the outer layers of the skin. This leads to an overall faded appearance of spots. ✨Anti- Aging - treatment and prevention ✅Best for fine lines, sallow skin, wrinkles  🧪Works by supplementing antioxidants that fight against skin’s free radicals associated with aging and photoaging (skin aging due to sun/UV exposure.)  🧪Works by preventing deposits of cellular components in skin cells that make skin stiff and rigid during photoaging.The appearance of creases and wrinkles become reduced. ✨Completion correcting - smoother texture and complexion  ✅Best for uneven skin texture and tone  🧪Works by supplementing an antioxidant that promotes healthy skin cell growth. Skin becomes renewed and vibrant.  🧪Works by increasing the production of ceramides which maintain skin’s barrier. Skin looks moisturized and softer. Overall, niacinamide is a safe, versatile product and fabulous addition to a daily skincare regimen.

Saturday Skin Probiotic Power Whipped Cream
SATURDAY SKIN - Pretty Pop Probiotic Power Whipped Cream I adore the Saturday Skin bright potion serum, so when they gifted me their new pretty pop probiotic power whipped cream, I expected to be equally infatuated. Cute holographic packaging? Check. Powerhouse ingredients? Check. Probiotics AND prebiotics? Check. Yet it doesn't quite measure up to the bright potion serum, even though I'm aware that comparing the two doesn't make a ton of sense since they're completely different product types. Like the rest of the probiotic power line, the cream has niacinamide (my favorite skincare ingredient) to soothe and even out skin tone, four types of probiotics to improve complexion and strengthen the moisture barrier, and two types of prebiotics to help the probiotics work better. (I know, it was hard to word that bit) There's also hibiscus extract to smoothe texture, as well as moringa seed extract to make skin glow. On paper, this sounded perfect, yet despite the light texture, it left my skin feeling greasy even though I'm on the dry side. It has been quite humid here lately, so this could very well work better in cooler weather. There are little probiotic beads that release upon application, which is fine since it goes on so easily, but that part wasn't clearly mentioned, so when I first opened it I thought mine had gone off somehow. It's too early to speak to its brightening abilities; perhaps that'll change given time and/or using it in conjunction with the serum. I'm all for splurging on a product that really works for you, but in this case the $57 price tag doesn't feel justified. Currently only available online at Sephora

Basic Morning Routine for Normal Skin
For this routine, I used almost all gel products because they’re light-weight and don’t leave your skin feeling like you’ve just used 6 products. Plus, with it being summer I don’t like using anything too heavy. All of the above products are very gentle and hydrating and leave my skin with such a nice glow. I think this is great for those with normal-combination skin. Like I’ve said in previous posts, I always use hyaluronic acid after cleansing my face. What’s better than waking up and starting your day off with a clean, hydrated face? I also love the wide awake brightening eye cream because it is a gel-formulation and it doesn’t leave your skin feeling greasy and just smells lovely. The vitamin C cream just gives the nicest glow when used in conjunction with these products or on its own. It’s my go-to the last couple of weeks! Vitamin C in the summer just feels right haha. Antioxidants are the best! And my favourite face cream is the extra dry Neutrogena hydro boost. It’s fragrance free and hydrates your skin, leaving is so soft to the touch and doesn’t cause any irritation. And because it’s summer and I used vitamin C, I had to follow with sunscreen. I chose to go with the spray as it’s quick and easy to use and super light on the skin. (I forgot to include a photo of the cleanser and sunscreen I used but will tag them below. I’ve done reviews for all the products below which is why I haven’t gone into much detail on them in this post 💚) Step 1: Cleansed my face with CeraVe - Hydrating Face Cleanser For Normal To Dry Skin Step 2: The Ordinary - Hyaluronic Acid 2% + B5 Step 3: SATURDAY SKIN - Wide Awake Brightening Eye Cream with Avocado Step 4: REN CLEAN SKINCARE - Glow Daily Vitamin C Gel Cream Step 5: Neutrogena - Neutrogena Hydroboost Water Gel Moisturizer (extra dry) Step 6: Neutrogena - Ultra Sheer Face Mist Sunscreen Broad Spectrum SPF 55

Pricey eye serum!
Pricey eye serum!
SUNDAY RILEY - Auto Correct Brightening and Depuffing Eye Contour Cream I received this cute little sample from a gift-set by the Dermstore. I’ve used this eye serum for about four days and nights this week. I certainly don’t dislike it, but I’m not sure it’s worth the price. Sunday Riley advertises this as a cream that will help de puff and brighten the under-eye area. It feels intensely moisturizing while maintaining a thin, spreadable consistency. This DOES make my under eyes look better because it adds moisture and has a tiny amount of shimmery mica, which subtlety diffuses the light. My main concerns/complaints with this product are the price and fragrant ingredients. Although you only need a very little bit, $65 is a lot to spend on an eye cream. If you’re considering buying this, I would absolutely recommend asking for a sample first, and maybe trying out some cheaper options before you splurge on this one. I’m also trying to be a bit more mindful about potentially sensitizing ingredients that I put on my skin, and I’ve been trying to avoid leave-on products with fragrance, especially around sensitive areas like the eyes. Unfortunately, this eye serum contains multiple purely fragrant ingredients, so it’s not something I would choose to pay full price for at this point.

Farmacy eye cream!
Farmacy eye cream!
The farmacy dew it all total eye cream is a moisturizing eye cream that helps minimize signs of stress and fatigue while delivering hydration to help soothe and nourish the eye area! It is great to solve fine lines, wrinkles, dullness, and uneven texture and loss of firmness and elasticity. The texture is very thick but lightweight and very creamy! I absolutely love using this eye cream and I got it about a year ago from a friend recommending it to me. It is very hydrating and didn’t break me out, but I saw great results in my under eyes after using it for a while. I would recommend this to others because it is a great overall eye cream and can be used with all skin types! It is worth the $38 for .5oz because I know a lot of you will really love this product as much as I did!🌾🌼FARMACY - Dew It All Total Eye Cream

Boscia Indigo Eye Cream and so
Boscia Indigo Eye Cream and some other goodies. I think I already love it! The cream is a light purple colour which is known to brighten up dull areas of the face. It also has tiny little sparkles in it that work to reflect light and brighten the under eye area! I wore it under my makeup yesterday and my under eyes looked bright and stayed hydrated all day. Loving it so far!

Acure brightening eye gel!
Acure brightening eye gel!
The Acure brightening eye contour gel is a lightweight eye treatment that has a firm handshake. It has seaweed extract and hibiscus extract that provide rejuvenating hydration. A 3-in-1 blast of argan extract, witch hazel, and air cool and soothe for a brighter, more hydrated outlook. This is great for all skin types as well! It can be a solution for a brighter appearance. The texture of this is a lightweight gel! Acure kindly sent this to me during the summer and have been using it in the morning all the time! It is so hydrating, didn’t break me out, and had great results in my under eyes getting brighter! I would definitely recommend this eye gel for anyone who wants an among cooling eye gel for the morning! It is $19.99 for .5oz!🧡⚡️ACURE - Brightening Eye Contour Gel

I really wanted to love this p
I really wanted to love this product, but it didn’t perform the way I needed it to. It’s meant to be a restorative antioxidant eye cream that brightens the under eye area and helps with fine lines and wrinkles. Unfortunately all it did for me was hydrate my under eyes. While the hydration was welcomed, it did nothing for me in terms of brightening and smoothing out wrinkles. I loved that it was creamy without being heavy or greasy. Despite being a bit on the thicker side, it still provided a smooth application and wore well under makeup. But that’s not enough to make this $64 product worth it. If it was 1/3 of the cost I would definitely repurchase for the hydration alone. That being said, I don’t recommend the product if you’re looking for something to actually correct any issues. Took one star off for the cost and one for not performing the way it was intended. DRUNK ELEPHANT - C-Tango Multivitamin Eye Cream

{Skincare} FAB Triple remedy AM eye gel
{Skincare} FAB Triple remedy AM eye gel
{What is it?} A fast absorbing eye treatment that hydrates , helps skin appear firmer & diminish the appearance of fine lines & wrinkles. {Who is it for?} All skin types & sensitive. {Texture/Consistency?} It is a lightweight hydrating gel, it smooths immediately into the skin. {My thoughts?} I really love this eye gel! I’ve used it mornings only for the past 5 months and it makes my eyes feel so hydrated & really helps my makeup NOT crease. Its perfect underneath all different powders & concealers. It feels so refreshing and cooling. It helped diminish any puffiness I may have in the AM. I find it doesn’t brighten anything though so I don’t like it at night time. I do like the pump bottle as well it’s very easy and clean to get product. {Would I recommend?} Yes, it worked well for my morning time routine. I am not sure if I like the price, it is .5 oz for $36. I will say the product has lasted me since I opened it in March and I consistently have been using it since July and I’m not even half way done! I only use half of a pump. I find that a whole pump is too much. I would defiantly repurchase. FIRST AID BEAUTY - Eye Duty Triple Remedy A.M. Gel Cream
