My Deep Cleanse Routine
I wanted a deep cleanse tonight: Pixi Glow Mud Cleanser - This is deep pore cleansing and glow revealing with an added 5% glycolic acid. Pixi Glow Mud Mask- To purify and draw out impurities. This can also be used as a spot treatment. Mario Badescu Orange blossom and Aloe facial spray- Spritz of this to prep my face for application of serum. This smells so lovely and is so refreshing in this heat... I've been using it all day to cool me down. The Ordinary -Buffet- A multi peptide complex serum with Hyaluronic acid for hydration and anti-ageing benefits. This serums helps to improve the look of static wrinkles in the skin and increase skin firmness. Weleda Skin food- I only dab this on areas that tend to get dry and where i have wrinkles forming. Herbivo Rebotanicals Phoenix facial oil- finishing off with this super nourishing and hydrating oil, it contains co enzyme Q-10 which is fab for increasing collagen production and improving the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. I just wished it smelt better as I really don't like the smell of it 🤦🏼♀️but I suppose there's no added fragrance so I can't complain too much.

ImanHassanThe Mario Badescu spray isn’t really great for your skin because it has high amounts of fragrance which can cause irritation

. Another kind of ritual is my skincare. It's done in a certain order and helps clear my mind from the day. Using high quality ingredients is part of making my nightly ritual complete. . june jacobs spa creates spa quality skincare with gentle ingredients. The Creamy Cranberry Cleanser leaves my skin hydrated and not feeling tight or stripped. It smells like fresh cranberries. It's a really effective cleanser too! I last used it to take a full face of makeup off, and it did the trick! . The Green Tea and Cucumber Toner is a fresh splash of cucumber, and goldenseal (which is a new ingredient to me). It has valerian root and chamomile extracts to soothe skin (and smells amazing!) . The Elastin Collagen Serum has marine derived collagen, Co-Q10 (which is a great cell repair ingredient) and other skin repairing ingredients. The serum is lightweight and absorbs quickly, with no tacky residue or irritation. I really enjoy this serum! . Finally, the Age-Defying Overnight Copper Marine Mask is the perfect capstone to a nightly skincare ritual. It has copper, zinc and magnesium along with elastin and lavender to really help boost cell regeneration overnight. You put this on after all your serum has dried and absorbed, and leave it on overnight. My skin just drank this mask up, and I woke up with soft, fresh skin. You guys know how great a sleeping mask is, and this one is quite nice!
I want to share with you one more my discovery - US based brand Saian® which creates the most advanced natural hypoallergenic skincare products containing no artificial color, no artificial fragrance, and no parabens for use on the most skin. Brand believes all women are beautiful, this is why they specialize in ethnic skin, which is often overlooked by the mainstream cosmetic industry. Saian encourages us to love and honor our complexion by using finely-tuned products that the skin and prevent premature aging. Pure and clean American skincare, instant and cumulative results, support and education. This is Saian’s mission, so let's all be esty-besties. Strawberry cleanser, herbal toner, tri-active collagen serum, amino-lift mask (overnight) and replenishing cream. I have tried everything except cream. Let me say, I am absolutely in love with serum and mask. They both include fantastic ingredients in quite simple formulas (swipe to see ings). Serum has almost watery texture, like very thin gel, but it hydrates and plums so good. Mask replenishes my skin overnight and makes it supple and glowing. Cleansing gel is non-ing and I love to use it in the morning for gentle cleansing. Toner has some great ingredients too. It does contain alcohol denat, but its concentration is under 1% as it goes after sodium hylauronat. I try to avoid alcohol in skincare products but I personally find this concentration too low to worry about. This is my favorite in skincare products - clean formulas + science proven ingredients, they always work great on me.
Lovinah Supernatural Skincare is inspired by ancient African beauty secrets & remedies with a modern technology twist. Lovinah products are hand crafted in small batches. The line is a natural, clean & quite unique.

It’s got aloe, glycerin, cucumber, fermented rooibos, white tea, astaxanthin, witch hazel, Dragon’s Blood & apple cider vinegar . ✨Goddess Glow Brightening Balm has the softest dreamy texture that melts right into the skin. Plus the sparkle of 24K gold is perfection. This balm has kahai, squalane, moringa, black cumin, rosehip & sea buckthorn oils, vitamin E & C, CoQ-10, beta-carotene, a natural AHA complex of sugar cane, orange, lemon & sugar maple. Bakuchiol, moth bean & date extract stimulate overnight cellular repair. I love how well rounded this anti-aging balm is. It’s a favorite of mine . 🖤 The Black Tea Cleanser is quite the powerful detox/clarifying cleanser with African Black Soap, enzymes and AHA/BHA. It’s got aloe, glycerin, moringa, black tea, witch hazel, vinegar, willow bark, tea tree, lemongrass, spearmint, AHA/BHA concentrate, papaya & pineapple enzymes, charcoal & cacao ash . 🥬 Super Green Serum is the superfood serum with a base of fermented antioxidant rich green tea combined with aloe, niacinimide, beta-glucan, MSM, gotu kola, sodium hyaluronate, probiotics/prebiotics lactobacillus, inulin & bifida ferment lysate, kale, alfalfa, spinach & spirulina . 🐉 The Dragon’s Blood Bioactive Mask is an exfoliating, detox and rejuvenating mask that is quite unique. It recently got reformulated and the old version I have has Dragon’s Blood, encapsulated vitamins A & E, fermented rooibos tea and bifida ferment lysate. This also contains enzymes, lactic acid & willow bark extract. I love how this mask increases the circulation in the skin. It really gives you a good flush
Just realized that I’ve never posted about my favorite local brand yet so here’s one dedicated to them! In Her Element is all about using only the cleanest of ingredients (no fillers whatsoever!) and seeking new formulations that is highly effective. They promise only one thing: maximum glow for minimum effort—which I am all about. Low pH Rose Gel Cleanser - one of my top 3 favorite cleansers ever. This has a pH level of 5.5-6 (perfect for maintaining your skin’s moisture barrier) and contains active botanical ingredients that gives you brighter skin. Lathers just the right amount and smells absolutely beautiful! Glow Job 5% Glycolic Gel Cream - I’m going to be honest, I haven’t used this consistently enough but just to give a little info, claims to get rid of dark spots and dull skin gently. Has AHA that is able to penetrate into your skin to unveil bright skin. Petal Skin Rose Toning Essence - so good I’m almost done with it. Rose water infused with anti-oxidants and niacinamide to clear up your complexion. Great for that layered skin method for extra moisture so you can use less products in your routine. Petal Skin Rose Clay Mask - features rose water with rose clay to get rid of impurities as well as glycolic acid to quicken dead skin turnover. Out of all the masks I’ve used this burns the sides of my nose the most but I actually like it, that way I know that it actually works!
Today I am brightening my feed (and hope yours as well) with products from amazing Canadian leaping bunny brand 𝐋𝐈𝐅𝐀𝐍𝐂𝐄 Lifance is a generation of skincare with clean complex formulas that are highly effective to deliver the results we expect and deserve. Ingredients chosen for LIFANCE formulas are hydrating, skin plumping, reduce redness, reduce inflammation, minimize fine lines and increase cell renewal.

This lightweight emulsion with pleasant natural scent absorbs in seconds, gives immediate hydration, plumps and rejuvenates skin. I can use it alone or with moisturizer on top and it works great both ways. Revitalize Day Moisturizer with peptides, HA and botanicals is a great addition to serum. It hydrates, moisturizes, plumps, brightens skin, makes fine lines less visible and skin tone more even. I like how comfortable my skin feels after applying it.
