Another tinted moisturizer with spf review! Pros: It contains ginseng root extract that boosts skin hydration, evens out texture, and helps visibly improve wrinkles. The tint is really good at evening out my complexion and giving me a nice glow!! I don’t even need to apply makeup when I use this because of the sheer coverage it provides. It’s perfect for a “no makeup” look! Another big plus is the great SPF! Cons: Very pricey! and this only comes in one shade so it might be hard to match other skin tones. My skin is tan and thankfully it matches perfectly. It also sometimes leaves dry patches on some areas of my face so I still have to put a layer of moisturizer underneath. Note that this contains essential oils so watch out if your skin can’t handle it. Despite all that, i still personally enjoy this product :)
ORIGINS-Ginzing SPF 40 Energy-Boosting Tinted Moisturizer
Im obsessed with this pineapple bright serum by Glow Recipe! It has vitamin c which helps smooth, hydrate and brighten skin and hyperpigmentation. This serum gives my skin instant glow when I apply it! It has also reduced some dark spots on my cheeks and forehead. I use it every morning after cleanser and toner then follow up with a moisturizer and SPF. It does have a pineapple scent but honestly I love it and it goes away quickly.

Cica sleeping mask
This mask claims to strengthen, repair, and restore your skin’s barrier. Cica (or centella asiatica) is a plant-derived antioxidant and is well-known to calm inflammation and acne as well as prevent damage from environmental stressors. I use it as the last step of my PM routine to seal everything in overnight. It is on the heavier side of creams and can be greasy but it’s absolutely perfect for winter to save the dry areas of my face. I use it 2-3 times a week especially when I want to soothe and reduce the redness on my cheeks, and I must say it does work wonders! My skin feels so calm and deeply nourished. A little goes a long way so I’m sure this jar will last me a long time!

My favourite tinted SPF
Sunscreen is the last and most important part of my AM routine. It protects skin from UV rays and prevents uneven skintone, dark spots, and aging from sun damage. I make sure to re-apply it every 2 hours even when it’s cloudy/rainy! That being said: This tinted moisturizer is my favourite SPF!! It's perfect for my oily-combo skin. The slight tint gives a sheer coverage and evens out my skin tone a little, and the matte finish keeps it from looking greasy. It’s easy to blend and absorb into skin due to its light texture. I still apply moisturizer beforehand cause I feel like it's not enough to moisturize my skin but overall I’d say this one is sooo worth the try!

My holygrail BHA
What it is and what it does: It is an exfoliant that contains BHA (salicylic acid) which penetrates deep into the pore lining and exfoliates both the surface and beneath the skin. It removes dead skin cells and visibly reduces fine lines and wrinkles to produce smoother, younger-looking skin. It’s especially effective for reducing breakouts, including blackheads and whiteheads. How to use: I used this daily as the third step in my pm routine (double cleanse, toner, EXFOLIATE). It claims to be gentle enough that you can use it up to twice a day. Although I never had any issues with using once every night, I realized it's probably best that I don’t over-exfoliate so I reduced usage to 3x a week. I ALWAYS use SPF in the morning to avoid irritation/sensitivity. My experience: The hype is real guys. This baby changed my skin! I’ve been using this for almost a year now and it has drastically improved my skin. It shrunk my nose pores and has kept it in check. It has also helped even out my skin tone and best of all, it made my t-zone less oily and look glowy instead✨ I’ve used other chemical exfoliants but I always find myself coming back to this one. I love it so much I already have a back up! You have to try this at least once in your life!! 🙌🏼

Best lip mask!!
Everyone probably owns this lip mask and I won’t be surprised. It’s just THAT good!! This is the only lip mask that fixes my chapped af lips and keeps it moisturized overnight. I bought this almost a year ago and I use this every single day and night and I’m not even halfway through the jar. Super worth it!
