⚡️SKIN SAVIOR SERUMS ⚡️
These are some of my newer serums that I’ve been using for a few months now and I’m totally in love!! Here’s how I use them and what they do for me 🥰 My Skin Type: Very Combination, Rosacea, Light skin tone, 21 yrs old PEACH & LILY - Glass Skin Refining Serum Price: $39/40 mL Ingredients: niacinamide, peach extract, peptides, hyaluronic acid Thoughts: This serum is PERFECT for combination skin! Its super hydrating and also controls excess oil production with the niacinamide/HA combo. I find that it really makes my skin look healthy and balanced and keeps breakouts at bay. I usually use niacinamide products at night because I tend to get the most oily over night. Love it so much!💕 FARMACY - Honeymoon Glow Serum Price: $58/1 oz Ingredients: AHA, BHA, flower acids, honey, HA Thoughts: Easily my favorite chemical exfoliator! Much gentler than The Ordinary - AHA 30% + BHA 2% Peeling Solution which I do love but rarely feel that I am able to use because my skin is easily sensitized, but this farmacy serum gets the job done and I LOVE that its a serum that I can leave on over night and wake up to soft glowy skin! PAULA'S CHOICE - Defense Antioxidant Pore Purifier Price: $31/1 oz Ingredients: salicylic acid, vit C, licorice root, ceramides, coq10, other antioxidants Thoughts: this is my GO TO morning serum! Not only does it clear my pores and keep my oil production at bay, as well as reduce the inflammation of any acne I’m experiencing, its also very hydrating and protects your skin from free radicals and aging! Its really such a well rounded product that does a bit of everything and works so well, my favorite PC product ❤️ Krave - Great Barrier Relief Price: $28/45 mL Ingredients: tamanu, sunflower, & rosehip oils, squalane, vit b3, ceramides Thoughts: a GREAT moisturizer for when your skin is super dehydrated or sensitive, it really gives a great reset. I gave it 4 stars because its marketed as a serum when its very much a cream-consistency, and I cant use it too often because the oils tend to clog my T zone. However it definitely does what its meant to do and when nothing else helps, this product DOES! Have you tried these serums? Whats your favorite? Lmk any questions you have!!
The Ordinary-AHA 30% + BHA 2% Peeling Solution
Does FOOD belong in SKINCARE or SMOOTHIES?🍑🥬🍯
Fruits, vegetables, and other ingredients that we consume are commonly used in marketing for skincare products, claiming certain benefits. But do all natural foods belong in skincare? See for yourself 😉 🍯 Honey : anti-inflammatory, balances bacteria, speeds up healing of the skin. Often used in products for combatting acne. Very effective, but you should try not to smear raw honey on your face as it could clog your pores if not properly treated. Farmacy is famous for its line of products that effectively use honey! My favorite is FARMACY - Honeymoon Glow Serum which chemically exfoliates while also soothing and moisturizing to prevent irritation. 🥬 Celery : Ingesting celery juice is the latest trend in health and wellness, because it has such a high water content (over 95%) and contains antioxidants including vitamin C. However, adding celery to skincare is likely just a marketing trick, as it likely only adds some extra water to the product, and the antioxidant content likely needs to be boosted with other forms in order to get the best effect. The VOLITION - Celery Green Cream Beauty is hydrating enough for a day cream, but I don’t think including celery makes it all that revolutionary. 🍵 Matcha : Powerful antioxidant and antibiotic. The chlorophyll which makes matcha such a bright green actually helps to convert sunlight to energy and therefore protect our skin from photo-aging. The ECGC compound in matcha is also anti-bacterial and is very helpful for fighting and soothing acne. The Krave - Matcha Hemp Hydrating Cleanser is easily my favorite cleanser due to how gentle and effective it is! 🍑 Peach : Anti-inflammatory, moisturizing, promotes skin metabolism, anti-bacterial, and antioxidant. The leaves contain amino acids, flavanoids, and tannins which are all very beneficial to skin health. The PEACH & LILY - Glass Skin Refining Serum utilizes peach extract for this lovely serum that my skin absolutely drinks up! The results are amazing so I can’t help but believe that peaches are wonderful for our skin! 🍊 Orange : antioxidant, exfoliating, high vitamin C content. Could be irritating to sensitive skin types, especially oils from the peel. This goes for basically any citrus fruit, but it is still a very commonly used ingredient in skin care due to its antioxidant properties. In small doses it can be very beneficial, and it smells great, such as in the OLE HENRIKSEN - Truth Juice Daily Cleanser ! What do you think? Do foods belong in skincare? Whats your favorite food-ingredient? Let me know below!!👇🏼👇🏼

✨ THICK AND CURLED AND LONG ✨
Hows that for a headline? 😏 Introduuccinnnggggg my eyelash routine! I think we can all relate to our eyelashes getting shorter and straight, damaged from mascara and falsies, and falling out as we get older. These are the steps I take to make them look full and pretty again! 1. LashesMD - LashesMD Eyelash Growth Serum I LOVE this stuff. I have really seen a difference in the length and quality of my lashes since incorporating this serum into my routine. It is quite inexpensive and probably doesn’t yield the same results as some other more expensive serums with stronger formulas, but any form of conditioning for lashes will have a positive effect and I’ve really noticed how healthy and lush they look! It was received in my FabFitFun box which is awesome 🥰 2. LASH CURLER! Any lash curler will do, mine was most likely $5, any kind is likely to work the same as any other! This is super important to make sure your lashes are sticking in the same direction, and if your lashes are straight it is more difficult to see them. Curling them so that they are more vertical helps with their visibility so you can see how long your lash serum is making them! 3. essence - Super Curl Volume Mascara Eye-Opening This mascara works WONDERS all by itself. The curve of the wand and short stiff bristles really help to accentuate your eye shape and curl the lashes even more, and it separates your lashes to coat them individually and avoid clumping. It makes my lashes look super long and pretty and fanned out! Essence brand mascaras are my favorite because they have so many choices and theyre all usually found for $5 at drug stores!! 4. essence - I Love Extreme Curl And Volume Mascara This mascara is great when coupled with other mascaras, but on its own it definitely doesnt have the best lengthening properties. I personally find them to separate my lashes even more to remove any clumping from the previous mascara and it makes them look much thicker and fuller. However, theres something about these bristles that are very sharp so I do have to be careful as to not get them too close to my lash line because it does kinda hurt a lil Swipe to see the results!! I forgot to take a before pic and its difficult to take a picture that does them justice, but if you have any questions feel free to comment!! ❤️ Love you cherie fam

✨SUPER SHOUTOUT TO MY FAVORITE MASK 😍
✨My Skin Type: 21, light, combination, textured, rosacea KORRES - Hydra Biome Probiotic Superdose Face Mask With Real Greek Yoghurt Meet my favorite mask right now, Miss Hydra Biome 🥰 She’s a pricey lil thing, and $49 for 100 mL/3.38 oz. (not bad when you break it down by ounce!) ✨Description from brand: A probiotic face mask with real Greek yoghurt that rehydrates, reduces redness, and rebalances skin’s natural protective layer in just one use. This mask improves elasticity, radiance, and texture for a revitalized, healthier look. ✨Ingredient spotlights: Greek yoghurt: collagen boosting protein, probiotics, vitamins and minerals Aloe leaf juice: rich in vitamins A&B, folic acid, enzymes, proteins, amino acids Rice extract: smooths fine lines & wrinkles, neutralized environmental stress Hyaluronic acid: draws moisture into the skin to plump and hydrate Lactic acid: AHA that gently exfoliates Salicylic acid: BHA that purifies pores Bisabolol: soothes irritation Botanical extracts and oils for nourishment and emollients ***contains some forms of alcohols and fragrance ✨My thoughts: I LOVE this mask!! It is definitely my favorite in my collection right now. My skin absolutely drinks it up and fully absorbs it every time, I love the feeling of it so much that I usually just end up rubbing in the excess and using it as a night cream. My skin feels so smooth, plump and radiant afterwards, I truly cant get enough of it. The slight tingly feeling I get from the probiotics in the yoghurt is truly addictive and I love that you can almost feel it perfecting your skin. I just think this mask was MADE for my skin thats how much i love it!!! I will admit though, when I over-do it on my retinol and my skin is feeling very sensitive, this mask stings for a bit, which is likely due to the alcohol and/or fragrance, or it could be from the lactic/salicylic acid. Basically, if your skin is ALWAYS very sensitive, it COULD be too harsh for you. But I happen to love it so much that I use it regardless because the other amazing ingredients should strengthen my natural barrier regardless! 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟 As always, let me know if you have an questions or comments and I’d be happy to chat! Much love to you all 💕💕💕💕💕

✨ MY FAVORITE PRODUCTS FOR COMBO TEXTURED SKIN
Skin Type: age 21, light, combination, rosacea, milia 1. OLE HENRIKSEN - Truth Juice Daily Cleanser Price: $28/5 oz Ingredients: orange fruit water; PHA; orange, lemon, rosehip, goji berry, and sea buckthorn extracts I really like this cleanser! its very refreshing and energizing in the morning and it smells just like oranges. Its not usually recommended for sensitive skin types to use a lot of citrus in their skincare, but I don’t find this to be sensitizing at all and it makes my skin feel very clean and brightened, and the PHA helps to relieve my texture! Overall great cleanser. 2. PAULA'S CHOICE - Ultra-Light Super Antioxidant Concentrate Serum Price: $39/1 oz Ingredients: HA, resveratrol, niacinamide, quercetin, adenosine, vit C, vit E, ubiquinone This is my all-time favorite serum, its texture feels so soft and luxurious and it absorbs into my skin like a dream! The ingredients are truly amazing and my skin feels healthier every time I use it. I do think its worth the money I just wish it came in a bigger size!! A little does go a long way though and I’ve had it since early July and I dont think I’ve made too big of a dent yet! 10 stars ⭐️❤️ 3. PAULA'S CHOICE - 10% Azelaic Acid Booster Price: $36/1 oz Ingredients: azelaic acid, licorice root extract, salicylic acid, adenosine, allantoin, bisabolol I use a pea sized drop of this creamy booster combined with other serums (usually basic ones like niacinamide or vitamin c), or as a spot treatment in order to soothe redness and irritation or make inflamed pimples go away faster, and it works a charm!! I get rosaceal acne along my cheekbones and hormonal pimples on my chin often and this really helps to soothe my skin and even-out my texture and irritation. I do feel like its pricey for the amount especially because the texture doesn’t allow it to go as long-of-a-way as other consistencies, but PC holds lots of sales and I still think its worth it! 4. FIRST AID BEAUTY - Ultra Repair Cream Price: $14/2 oz Ingredients: colloidal oatmeal; shea butter; allantoin; licorice root, feverfew, and white tea extracts This is a very basic staple product that everyone should have in their cabinet. Its very simple and very thick and creamy, doing exactly what it says it will. Its very hydrating and soothing and I always incorporate it on my retinol nights to ensure my irritation and dryness are minimized, and it works great!! 5. TULA SKINCARE - Daily Sunscreen Gel Broad Spectrum SPF 30 Price: $36/1.7 oz (i received in ipsy bag) Ingredients: probiotics, pineapple & papaya, wild butterfly ginger root, This is a chemical sunscreen which converts UV rays to heat (often not suitable for sensitive skin) and it leaves me face glowing and radiant! It also protects from blue light electronics which I LOVE and is so rare but so important! Delicious ingredients too 💖

brand spotlight: caudalie
Today I’m gonna talk about my least favorite and my favorite caudalie products! CAUDALIE - Vinoperfect Radiance Serum The Brightening Solution — key ingredients: viniferine, squalane, mint, caraway — claims: clears dark spots, boosts radiance, evens skin tone — price: $79 for 1oz — my thoughts: can’t believe how quick this evened my skin tone. I’ve been struggling with a few dark spots in my fave and overall an uneven complexion, but this serum is quickly putting in work on my skin. My face is overall brighter, I’ve had less breakouts, and no irritation caused from this product. It’s a creamy milky texture, soothing and smells lovely. I really can’t rave about this enough, and I’m very sad that it’s so expensive. I use this at night only and my vitc in the daytime. I’m excited to keep using this! CAUDALIE - Limited Edition Beauty Elixir — key ingredients: alcohol, Rosemary, lots of essential oils — claims: reduced redness & dullness of skin, astringent for pores — price: $49 for 3.4oz — my thoughts: supposed to be used as part of my skincare routine, but it’s drying and far too irritating to be used like that. I use it as a makeup setting spray, and it’s great at that, I just wish it was better at the thing it says it’s gonna do. The alcohol in it makes my face so dry and the mintyness stings my face pretty bad. I can only use this post makeup which sucks!!!! All the essential oils are very irritating and make me breakout if I use this on my bare skin. Even post makeup, it’s a little stingy. I think all the caudalie products I own have been gifted, by either the brand or by friends! I always wanted to try them because caudalie is such an iconic French skincare brand, and even when I didn’t know anything about skincare, I knew caudalie was top notch. I hate that I found something from them that I don’t like, but at least I enjoy most things!

Awesome for getting rid of milia!
bliss - Pumpkin Powerhouse Resurfacing & Exfoliating Enzyme Mask This pumpkin powerhouse mask from @bliss is sure to get you in the mood for some pumpkin pie! Lately I’ve been having a breakout of milia especially around my chin and forehead (thank you stress and hormones 🙃) so last night I thought I’d try out this resurfacing and exfoliating mask! This mask is supposed to “give you a brand new layer of gorgeous skin” and boy did this mask not disappoint! I woke up with my milia almost completely invisible and it’s is sulfate, paraben, and phthalates free! I will say it doesn’t smell like pumpkins BUT it doesn’t smell bad at all! I am disappointed that there is red dye in the ingredient list but luckily I had no reaction to that! I also recommend using before you hop in the shower because it is kind of difficult to get all of it off. I would say, considering the price point, overall this mask gets a A- from me!

My new favorite first cleanse
I am SO picky (rather, my sensitive, acne-prone skin is) when it comes to cleansers. Yes, all cleansers! Even in my first cleansing step. It should be no surprise that my recent favorite cleansing oil/balm is from Biossance: BIOSSANCE - Squalane + Antioxidant Cleansing Oil their squalane formulas just agree with my skin. This is only my second experience with an oil cleanser (my first experience was clinique’s liquid “take the day off” formula which is not cruelty free) and I am impressed! I apply 2 pumps to dry skin in the PM to dissolve my sunscreen and any makeup I might be wearing. After about 30-60 seconds of massaging that around my face, I add warm water to emulsify the cleanser off of my skin. It does turn a very translucent milky color and then I immediately follow up with a water-based cleanser (usually a gel formula) to make sure everything is washed off properly. It does not have a scent and it is a very lightweight oil at that! I have been using this for about 4 weeks and I have noticed my blackheads and sebaceous filaments are actually diminished in size as well. I am incredibly impressed with this formula. At $30 for 6.7oz I believe it is a complete steal!! Biossance’s formulas agree with my skin so well and I am excited to continue using this for quite some time... My only gripe with this product, and why I have to rate it 4/5 stars, is that I am using it up way too quickly compared to other first/oil/balm cleansers I’ve used in the past. I have been using it for about 3-4 weeks and I’m already almost 1/3 through this bottle. The problem is that to get all my spf and makeup off I need to use at least 2 pumps.
