Gel-Cream Moisturizer Heck Yeah!
Gel-Cream Moisturizer Heck Yeah!
The product✨ Korres new greek yoghurt nourishing probiotic gel-cream is made for all skin types and is supposed to help with redness and dryness. This contains greek yoghurt which gives you tons of pre and probiotics to nourish the skin. ••• My thoughts✨ I received this from influenster for review… It’s a nice lightweight moisturizer and it kinda has a sweet, I guess yogurty smell? I think it does a good job at keeping my skin hydrated all day without making it greasy. I love gel moisturizers and I always reach for them in the am because my skin is on the oilier side. This has kind of unique texture though, because it feels lightweight like a gel, but feels more hydrating like a cream, making it great for oily skin in the winter. I do find that it drys and absorbs into the skin pretty quick so I have to use a good amount to cover my whole face… so this sample has been going pretty quick, it will probably only last a week. So I think $36 for 1.35 ounces isn’t entirely worth it because if you use this everyday it won’t last you very long. Unfortunately, it also pills under my SPF so I probably wouldn’t purchase the full size. Besides the pilling I really enjoy using this moisturizer, and I’ll continue to use this on days that I don’t apply spf (which is really only when it’s rainy and I don’t leave the house 🥴) ••• KORRES - Greek Yoghurt Nourishing Probiotic Gel-Cream

The best toner???
The best toner???
The product✨ The Ordinary’s glycolic acid 7% toning solution is an exfoliating toner with 7% glycolic acid, amino acids, aloe vera, ginseng, and Tasmanian pepperberry. This works to combat dullness and uneven texture, and is good for all types fo skin. ••• My thoughts✨ I LOVE exfoliating toners! I think they have been one product that has truly made a difference in my skin, before I started using this is was using glossier’s solution, which I liked but I think I might just like this more. It stings slightly when you apply it, but goes away quickly and is really gentle. I find it to be slightly drying (but most exfoliating toners are), and since I use this only at night I follow it up with plenty of hydrating products. I currently use this about 3 times a week but I’m thinking of bumping it up to 5. I find that this does help with texture on my face, but I’ve also been using it on my chest where I tend to get blackheads and texture and it has helped SOOOO much! Also, this goes for $8.70 for 8oz and it lasts so long!!!! Once again in love with another TO product 😍 ••• The Ordinary - Glycolic Acid 7% Toning Solution

Worst Eye Cream
Worst Eye Cream
The product✨ Dr. Brandt’s Needles no more NO MORE BAGGAGE is supposed to help with dark circles and puffiness under the eyes. This is a gel that is formulated with things like caffeine and peptides. ••• My thoughts✨ Wow folks, really not impressed by this product. Perhaps it’s because I don’t really struggle with dark circles or puffiness, but so far I’m just not a fan of eye creams (or in this case gel). My first issue with this product is the texture… I don’t know if mine was separated or what but when I first started using it it was just orange liquid coming out of the tube, I had to really try and squeeze and work the tube to get the product together, but even then it was kinda lumpy. This is a pretty bright orange gel, and you really have to pat it into your skin to make sure your under eyes aren’t orange. This product goes for $42 for 0.5oz, I did receive this from a FabFitFun box so I didn’t directly pay for it. I would not repurchase, and I think there are probably other easier to use, possibly more effective eye products out there. ••• dr. brandt - No More Baggage Eye De-Puffing Gel

Great Cleanser for oily skin!
Great Cleanser for oily skin!
The Product✨ The Laroche-Posay purifying foaming cleanser Is for normal to oily skin and it works to remove impurities, excess oil, and makeup while maintaining the skin barrier and pH. This cleanser contains ceramide-3, and glycerin which act to provide moisture and protect the skin barrier, and niacinamide helps with oil control and visibility of pores. This is a gel cleanser, which lathers and foams nicely. ••• My Thoughts✨ This has become one of my favorite cleansers! It costs $14.99 for 13.5oz which I find very reasonable, and it has lasted me so long. I have combo/oily skin and I do find on days where my skin is a little more on the combo side it can feel slightly drying, but during the summer months where I’m a grease ball it works great at cleansing my skin and leaving it feeling fresh. With that said I’ve still been using during the colder months and I find just as long as I follow up with a good moisturizer it’s fine. But if I repurchase this during the winter I might try their hydrating cleanser instead... but I would definitely recommend this to people who have oily skin as I find it works great at cleansing without stripping my skin. ••• LA ROCHE-POSAY - Effaclar Purifying Foaming Gel

GLAMGLOW VOLCASMIC 🌋
GLAMGLOW VOLCASMIC 🌋
The product✨ GLAMGLOW’s Volcasmic Matte Glow Moisturizer is recommended for those with normal, combo, or oily skin, and is described as a lightweight creamy moisturizer with minerals which help absorb excess oil, all while hydrating the skin. This will help with the appearance of oiliness, pores, and dullness. ••• My thoughts✨ I don’t mind this moisturizer, I find that when I use this my skin looks great! It definitely helps reduce my oiliness throughout the day and keeps my pores looking minimized. However, even though my skin looks good I find that it feels heavy on my skin, so I won’t wear this during the day with my SPF, but I like this when I’m going out at night. I’ve heard people say they like this as a primer, and I can definitely see that. This has an orange-creamsicly scent which is sweet, but not too sweet. This goes for $49 for 1.7 ounces. This was gifted to my by my sister, so I’m not sure I would purchase this myself. However, a little goes a long way and I know I’ll get some good use out of it. ••• GLAMGLOW - VOLCASMIC Matte Glow Moisturizer

Pimple Patches
Pimple Patches
The product✨ These cosrx acne pimple patches have a hydrocolloid dressing which acts to extract impurities and provide a protective barrier. Simply place on a blemish after cleansing your face and leave on overnight or during the day time. These are thin patches that aren’t too noticeable on the skin (at least for me, because I have a fair skin tone that matches these quite well) ••• My thoughts✨ These are pretty good. Each sheet comes with 24 patches with a variety of sizes to chose form depending on your blemish. You can find these at a bunch of different places, including amazon which is where I got mine, you can get 4 sheets for $12, or one sheet at Ulta for $6, which I think for pimple patches is a great deal. I’ve had mixed results with these, and part of that might be user error. I think I tend to put these on after I’ve done my whole routine, when I think it’s best to apply just after cleansing to really allow forte to make contact with the skin and blemish. I also think it’s best to use these overnight. I do think these are comfortable and often forget I’m wearing it. I will continue using these and messing around with what works best, but I would definitelyly recommend these to anyone who struggles with acne because these are so affordable. ••• COSRX - Acne Pimple Master Patch

Okay, so, I know I’ve said this before but I don’t really worry about my pores looking enlarged as there’s no real way to completely erase them or get rid of them That being said, sometimes when I’m PMSing, the pores on my nose get horrifically large. I’m not sure why, and I don’t really mind it, but it can definitely be annoying. For the last year or so I’ve been using The Ordinary - Granactive Retinoid* 2% Emulsion as I know retinol is great for the skin, but I’m deeply worried about going through the purge/dry skin/etc. while I’m at school. This product is helps your skin be more youthful, etc., just as retinol does but is super gentle and a bit less powerful I use this bad boy about once or twice a week, sometimes as a spot treatment more often, and when I use it the pores on my skin are so much less noticeable. The product in general just leaves my skin looking super refreshed and dewy, I look v smooth and hydrated It has a milky texture, and has a bit of a chemical-y smell - but not in a bad way, it isn’t an overpowering smell or anything. This will run you $9.80 for 1 oz, which is pretty darn cheap imo. Definitely worth checking out if your skin is super sensitive and you’re a bit scared of retinol - it’s a great stepping stone!

Overall, not impressed with this product. The formula pills no matter what I do. In my research I have also found that Azelaic acid works best when paired with another acid, such as salicylic.The Ordinary - Azelaic Acid Suspension 10% Paula’s Choice offers azelaic acid with the addition of salicylic acid. this formula does not pill & I love how it goes on the skin. No adverse reactions, though it is more pricey. PAULA'S CHOICE - 10% Azelaic Acid Booster

The Ordinary Azelaic Acid Suspension for Redness
The Ordinary - Azelaic Acid Suspension 10% This Azelaic Acid Suspension has been my favorite for about 6 weeks now. It claims to help with uneven texture and skin tone and is for all skontiere, even sensitive. The consistency is a thick cream basically, which is why I like to apply this after my other serums. I like to use it once, sometimes twice a day and after a couple of uses I noticed a huge improvement in redness and later in my skin texture! I have closed comedies on my cheeks and I definitely need to use this consistently but it does help! It tingles after applying but doesn’t burn uncomfortably. Azelaic Acid is so underrated and truly amazing for any skintype. Plus this one sells for 8$ and I saw results after a week! Would recommend to everyone!

Oil Control Skincare: Seriously Shine Free!
Oil Control Skincare: Seriously Shine Free!
The product: It uses aloe Vera and bamboo to extract oils from the skin and provide a moisturizer and smooth looking face. It’s supposed to keep you shin free and pores not clogged. Oil Control Skincare Review: Face moisturizers are pretty expensive and my face gets dry during the winter so I wanted to try a decently priced moisturizer. I have oily areas on my face so I decided to try this one. And it’s a miracle because this for such a nice price, it works really well! The smell is nice and light, it literally smells like what it’s made out of: aloe vera and bamboo. The moisturizer has a smooth medium thickness texture, it is shown in one of the pictures. When putting it on my face, it went on very gentle and smooth. My face felt cool and refreshed/hydrated after. It left my face soft and moisturized. It did not irritate my skin and there were absolutely no breakouts from this! The results were really positive. Throughout my day, I had absolutely no shine from oil on my face. This product did really well regulating the oils. I would definitely recommend this product since it’s a good moisturizer and oil controller for such a nice price! Ulta regularly does sales on this brand, I bought this for around $4.00. Since then, I’ve been using it everyday and it’s been working extremely well! Amazing product!FORMULA 10.0.6 - Seriously Shine Free Mattifying Oil Free Moisturizer

🍑 Tatcha Kissu Lip Mask
🍑 Tatcha Kissu Lip Mask
Hey, chappy lips! I'm treating you to some 🍑 jelly tonight. Unlike other lip masks, Tatcha's Kissu Lip Mask focuses on indulging the lips in hydration and can be used everyday. I have dry, sensitive skin and this seriously is my dream lip mask. It's a lifesaver for rough and chapped lips, especially those who can't live without matte lipsticks. It's a trend and we all know it so let's undo the damage 👌🏻 ⁠ I've been reaching for it every night before bed. The texture can feel slightly sticky when you first apply it, but it kinda melts down and becomes more watery and comfortable. Swipe left to see try on 👉🏻 Most of Tatcha's products come with a special golden spatula for application which makes the user experience more luxurious. ☺️ I was hoping it'll have a fragrancy peachy smell to it but nope! It's nearly scentless. If you're like me, when the product smells overly fragrant, I would prob use it a few times and get tired of the scent, I guarantee you'd love this. I'm not disappointed at all because Tatcha is known to be a clean brand at Sephora. Pricing is fair and you get 9g of product. Tatcha's peach jelly lip mask will keep your lips hydrated and supple throughout the night, sits very comfortably on the lips, and is simple enough to add to your skincare routine! ❤️⁠ TATCHA - The Kissu Lip Mask ⁠ The Goodness:⁠ ▫️Japanese peach⁠ ▫️Olive-derived squalane⁠ ▫️Japanese camellia oil (vitamin A, B, D, E and omega 3, 6, 9)⁠ ▫️Three rose⁠ ▫️Hadasei-3 (green tea, rice, algae)⁠ ⁠ Rating ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ (only downside is quality of the packaging)⁠ Recommend ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⁠
