NEW PRODUCTS = NEW ROUTINE
NEW PRODUCTS = NEW ROUTINE
Hey Girl, Hey! 🧚🏼 So I said that I would updated you guys once all my products that I ordered from Ulta came in so here i am!! I started a new skin routine today and these are the products that I used in order! The Ordinary - Squalane Cleanser Starting with the squalane cleanser, I used this one because I knew that I was about to do the peeling solution and i did not want to over work my skin before i did that process for the first time! I love the consistency of the cleanser as I have used oil cleansers before. It left my skin feeling very clean and moisturized. It is supposed to work really well with getting make up off but I haven’t tried that just yet. *I’ll keep y’all posted* The Ordinary - AHA 30% + BHA 2% Peeling Solution For the Peeling Solution, because it was my first time I was very cautious about using it and did a lot of research about it. I previously posted about my thoughts on this product and first impressions so if you want more information on this specifically, check it out! I will be using this again CVS pharmacy - Clear Zinc Sun Lotion SPF 50 So I got this sunscreen because I realized I needed to add one into my routine and this seemed like the perfect one due to it being a clear zinc SPF 50. It doesn’t leave a white cast and is very thick but rubs in really good. I do like the way it makes my skin feel because it doesn’t cause any unnecessary oils and goes on evenly. The Ordinary - Vitamin C Suspension 23% + HA Spheres 2% This Vitamin C Solution wasn’t my favorite. It had a really gritty texture that eventually smoothed out once I applied other moisturizers but the texture of it was a little off putting for me. I’ll use it for like 2 weeks to see if I see any dramatic changes but as of now it’s just okay to me. I feel it may have been a little too hard for me to be using right after a peel so maybe I’ll just skip this step when I use the Peeling Solution. Neutrogena - Neutrogena Hydroboost Water Gel Moisturizer 50ml I AM LOVINNNNNGGGGGGG THISSSSSS!!!! OMG! ❤️❤️❤️ From the smell, to the Gel consistency and the smoothing of my skin after I use it. I HIGHLY RECOMMEND THIS PRODUCT! It is perfect for dry skin while being light weight and not oily at all! I got mine from CVS and used a coupon to get it for $7 (Usually $23) You don’t need to use a lot so it will definitely last. I’ve been using it day and night for a few days and I will definitely be buying more. ✨‼️ The Ordinary - 100% Plant-Derived Squalane This i feel like added that extra moister i need after doing the peel. Didn’t see much of a difference but i will be using it in my routine because i liked the consistency. Lastly, I used my probiotic facial pray that I got from amazon! I swear by this spray. It gets rid of acne and definitely gives a refreshing feel. If you have any questions or suggestions hmu 😘💖‼️

The Ordinary AHA 30% + BHA 2% Peeling Solution
Hello Hello ✨ This is my first impressions of The Ordinary’s AHA 30% + BHA 2% Peeling Solution The Ordinary - AHA 30% + BHA 2% Peeling Solution and I have to say I was a bit intimidated!!!! I’ll admit... ordered this product because of the hype and the cool blood look! But I also did a lot of research on it and read hundreds of reviews giving warnings and feedback about the product. Initially, when I first put it on it went really smoothly and I had little to no tingling. After two minutes of applying that’s when I started to tingle on my cheek area but it wasn’t uncomfortable or unbearable. I only left the peeling solution on for eight minutes because it is my first time using it and it says not to use it for no more than 10 minutes. I rinsed off with warm water and my skin was SMOOTH AS HELL!!!! Before I use the peeling solution, I use the Squalane Cleanser The Ordinary - Squalane Cleanser from the ordinary as well because I didn’t want to use a really harsh cleanser before I did a very Intensive peel for the first time. The video I showed of my skin without the peel on it is directly after me rinsing it off with no product. My skin was smooth to the touch with no irritation or redness. Even though this is my first time using the product, I will try again in about a week to see if I get any different results. My goal for this product is to reduce the texture of my skin as well as hopefully evening out my skin tone and reducing hyperpigmentation. I will be posting the full routine that I used right after this for those of you who are curious! If you have any suggestions or questions please hmu 🥰

MORNING ROUTINE ✨
MORNING ROUTINE ✨
Good Morning 🌞🌻 This morning I did my normal routine with an extra cleanser to get stubborn make up off. I have tagged all the products used besides the “Organic LiviaOne Topical Spray Probiotics” because it didn’t show up on the list. I use it at the end when i finish my routine for a final refresher. I got mine from amazon and it is GREAT! I use it everyday day but especially if i have any break outs, dry skin or just would like a refresher. my first time using it I had one pimple (caused from my cycle coming) and I sprayed my face with it after just washing it once in the shower and in just ONE DAY my pimple was gone. I’ve heard really great reviews from other people with Cystic Acne and they say it works really well for that too! HIGHLY RECOMMEND⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ I also couldn’t Tag the Vitamin E oil that I used on my face but I got it from CVS for $4. I use it for extra moisturizer considering i just had a ton of makeup on 🙃 I like to use it under my moisturizers and i don’t use a lot because I’m combining it with the Clean and Clear Moisturizer. If you have any questions or suggestions I would love to hear them! ❤️ Have a Beautiful Tuesday ✨🧚🏼 GLOBAL BEAUTY CARE - Cocoa Butter Makeup Cleansing Wipes Neutrogena - Facial Cleansing Bar TONYMOLY - Mini Peach Punch Sweet Foam Cleanser equate - Salicylic Acid Acne Medication Astringent Clean&Clear - Share ESSENTIALS Dual Action Moisturizer

CURRENT SKIN CARE ROUTINE ✨ (for now)
Okay so I wash my face daily with the Neutrogena Facial Bar. It worked well for getting rid of oil and dirt. After I was my face I use my astringent from Clean & Clear all over and allow for it to dry. I spot treat my dark spots with tea tree oil and proceed to moisturize with the Clean& Clear moisturizer I tagged. I only use the Aztec Clay mask once every other week on my full face but i also use it for spot treatments if I have any breakouts appear. 😌 I just recently ordered new products I’ll be sure to update as soon as they come in. i am superrrr excited 😅

Squalane? The Moisture Sealer!
Squalane? The Moisture Sealer!
The Ordinary - 100% Plant-Derived Squalane First, I must admit I purchased this completely by accident. As you know the ordinary serum and oil boxes look pretty similar and I didn’t notice it wasn’t what I wanted until I got home. Secondly, I had no idea what squalane was- But when in doubt, research it and make sure it’s something you can try! Here’s a tiny bit of research on Squalane: (my experience/review on this starts below this part) The science: Your skin naturally produces “squalene” but this diminishes as we age. Squalene works as a moisture barrier between your skin and the environment. However, it deteriorates quickly when it’s not being produced (by our subaceous glands), so instead we use its more shelf-stable hydrogenated version, “Squalane” in our skin care products. Squalane is a powerful and versatile emollient (moisturizer) derived primarily from plants (sugarcane & olives) for skin care products. Though it can also be sourced from sharks (not ideal). It’s claim to fame: “to help prevent moisture loss and increases soft, supple feel” Who would benefit from this: those with skin on the dry-side of the spectrum looking for a light-weight moisturizing formula. Also, for those like myself who have slightly sensitive skin, it doesn’t irritate. It can also be used on hair, cuticles and even as a post-sun treatment! Who should skip this: anyone with oily or acne prone skin. Since Squalane is part sebum is can contribute to acne. My review: I began using this mid-winter when my skin is at peak-thirst (very, very dry). And while I am very picky when it comes to oils, I found that incorporating this into my night routine worked really well for me when my skin felt like the Sahara. It does tend to leave a slight greasy layer (as expected with an oil) but it is very light-weight. I also began adding this to the back of my hands amid the constant hand-washing and it’s been INCREDIBLE. I gave this product 4/5 because while it’s really moisturizing and my hands are silky smooth, it’s not a product I consider a staple. I use a lot of other products that feel like they have similar results. This being said, the price point is wonderful and it does what it says, so I would still recommend it for someone who suffers from really dry skin. How I use it (works best for me): At night, after cleansing and toning, use a few drop, warm in hands and press into face gently. After it absorbs into skin a little (I will usually walk away for a few minutes), continue with your night cream/sleeping mask. Note: This is just the info (from sources citing doctors and experts) I used to understand this product a bit more while I tried it out for the first time. I like researching products before I try them out since my skin likes to complain with anything new haha ✌🏼

For a routinely healthy glow, it’s important to make sure your skincare routine is on point, but with dozens of different products for every skin problem you can imagine, it can be difficult to decide which products you want to use in the morning, before bed, or which products will work best together.
