fresh Lotus Youth Preserve Face Cream with super 7 complex –
Jan & Feb empties soldejaneiro Acai Body Power Cream & Brazilian Bum Bum Cream enjoyed them both – the acai is lighter and floral in scent which I preferred for day to day, bumbum is a warmer sensual smell that my husband adores. I knocked a star off because they are pricey indulgence for body cream. thefaceshopcanada Rice Water Bright Light Cleansing oil – an ok cleansing oil for no makeup days, not great at removing mascara. . The Ordinary Lactic Acid 10%+HA – used for controlling ingrowns – not a perfect cure but helpful & affordable. youthtothepeople Kale + Tripeptide 5 Vitamin C Hyaluronic Acid Superfood Firm and Brighten Serum – My sensitivity to lacticacid prevented me from using it on my face, but it’s a gorgeous light texture that I used up on my body. larocheposayca Effaclar Astringent Lotion. – gentle exfoliating toner suitable for oilier skin types. Experienced no irritation or dryness. Lipikar syndet AP+ Anti-Itching soothing lipid – replenishing washing cream – great moisturizing shower cream for the whole family, neutral smell, helps prevent dry skin in the winter. thebodyshop Himalayan Charcoal is good multi tasking clay mask, sometimes the Essential oils can be a bit much. drunkelephant C-Tango Multivitamin Eye Cream - really like this eyecream. I am holding firm to my no buy and testing others in my collection but will return to this one in the future. B-Hydra Intensive Hydration Serum – my combination skin’s favorite drunkelephant cocktail base. banishacnescars Activated Charcoal Clay Masque – Powdered form with a short effective ingredient list. fresh Lotus Youth Preserve Face Cream with super 7 complex – no complaints just not impressed enough to purchase the full size. The highlight is the smell that transports me to the ocean. katesomerville eradikate - Love this spot treatment; most effective one I’ve tried to date.

🌟Late Texture Tuesday Post 🌟
here are some of my fave products and you could see that I’m hitting the pan on some of them.😆 First would be from @farmacybeauty Green Clean Cleansing Balm which is one of my skincare holy grails. This is my second one btw, I still can’t get enough of it! It removes makeup completely and it smells SOOO GOOD 😭 Cheers to you guys for makin this AMAZING product.❤️ Second is my @goldfadenmd Doctor Scrub. I know that I’ve talked about this product before, but I cannot stress enough how this scrub made wonders to my skin.❤️ It made me my skin tighter, brighter, and clearer! I use this everyday and it doesnt irritate me.☺️ Its makin me sad that I’ll hit pan on this soon because I don’t even know when I will be able to purchase one again.😭 Lastly is from @soldejaneiro Acai Body Power Cream. I know every loves the original BUM BUM Cream (I do too), but I’m leaning more to this because I LOVE the scent and does have teeny tiny shimmers that makes my skin GLOW.😍 *some of these items are kindly gifted
Here are my 3 mini Sol de janeiro moisturisers. I know I have said this before but I love it when companies make mini sizes as it means you can try something before spending more money than you have too in case you do not like the product. Bum Bum cream is the companies most famous cream, it does smell amazing, it actually takes you to Brazil. The top notes are pistachio and almond. Middle notes are haliotrope and jasmine petals. Dry down is vanilla, salted caramel and sandlewood. It really is yummy. Coco Cabana. The newest player. I’m glad I got a smaller size as I’m not sure how I feel about it yet. Sometimes I get coconut vanilla, other times I get salty butter. I think a bit more time and I will have a better verdict! Acid body power cream. This one surprised me! It doesn’t have the powerful scent that bum bum has, but it works well if I want to wear a floral perfume. It also has mica particles in it. I actually really like this cream and found it more moisturising than bum bum. Hope everyone is having a good day!

If you haven’t seen all of the reviews at Sephora or ULTA, I highly recommend you go check them out. On top the turquoise bottle is Coco cabana body cream. I love the way this product makes my skin feel especially right after a clean shower. The only downside is I’m not to crazy about the smell compared to the bum bum cream! But the body cream does wonders and it’s worth every single penny. Sephora —$45 for 8oz Or 2.5 oz for $20 On the bottom is the bum bum cream! If you look at reviews for this product most of them are going to say that the smell is amazing and they are not lying! Not only does this product firm and tone the skin because of the technology behind the product it also smells amazing and makes your skin feel super smooth. Most products that have a lot of benefits to them are super sticky and tacky. The product is the complete opposite. Sephora —$45 for 8oz Or 2.5 oz for $20
ℍ𝕒𝕡𝕡𝕪 𝕗𝕚𝕣𝕤𝕥 𝕎𝕖𝕕𝕟𝕖𝕤𝕕𝕒𝕪 𝕠𝕗 𝕥𝕙𝕖 𝕪𝕖𝕒𝕣! . For my first #watershot of the year, I’m sharing a shot of a product you’ve seen multiple times on my feed!😎 . The @soldejaneiro Bum Bum Cream is one my favorite body creams. It is a constant at my work desk and bedside table because I love it so much. I first purchased this product because of its name- Bum Bum Cream- which is so fun! . It has the best scent, a mixture of warm and spicy fragrances that is so distinctly @soldejaneiro you can instantly recognize it . The body cream is super hydrating and immediately melts and soaks into your skin. I’ve found that a little goes a long way! . This is my only product from @soldejaneiro but I can’t wait to try more! . Do you have any recommendations? . . . #soldejaneiro #bumbumcream #sephora #watershotwednesdaySOL de Janeiro - Brazilian Bum Bum Cream

My skincare (normal to oily sensitive skin)
My current routine! I have ups & downs & some I want to improve but this is what it’s currently at! Not pictured: TATCHA - Calming Foaming Enzyme Powder Absolutely love! Was going back & forth between this version & the one for oily skin but this one is juuuuuust right for my picky skin!! Pictured: (in order of use) TATCHA - The Essence Plumping Skin Softener Omg-it’s a game changer! This stuff may just look like fancy water (lol who am I kidding-I use evian - Brumisateur Natural Mineral Water Facial Spray so yeah-THATS fancy water but I love it! lol) but this stuff is 100% the real deal! I’ve noticed that products glide one & I don’t have as much of the shiny effect after putting on my skincare routine! Yay! DRUNK ELEPHANT - Shaba Complex Firming Eye Serum Ok so warning on this one-you’ll never use a full pump unless you share with 2 other people at the same time-this pump is stupid-I hate it but the product so far has done a good job & hasn’t made me run to go find a new one right away-could it be improved...? Yeah-but it’s a good option for me for now 😊 also-I don’t like using this by itself cuz it’s drying... so for a fix to that I added.... DRUNK ELEPHANT - C-Tango Multivitamin Eye Cream One again-you don’t need a full pump unless you’re sharing-no one has that much surface area to cover with this...ugh. This is the step that was missing when I just was using the firming serum-this is hydrating & goes after because it’s thicker. The combo works for me. Would I rather have 1 product? Yes. Would I rather have a better pump that doesn’t portion out share sizes of product? Yes.... am I rushing to Sephora to find a new one? Ha! No.... Curology - Curology formula My 2 cents on those people who hate this? It’s not for you & that’s ok! But dang does this work for me!! It’s a must have!! Love it!! -or- never and DRUNK ELEPHANT - T.L.C. Framboos Glycolic Resurfacing Night Serum I haven’t used this enough to rate but this is supposedly suppose to help with dark spots & pores? We shall see tester size...we shall see... TATCHA - The Water Cream Omg moisture heaven! Smells like a spa, glides on like a dream AND has gold in it? Sign me up! This stuff is amazing-I love it & it does wonders for me! Add ons! TATCHA - THE SERUM STICK Not in love-good for dry spots or singular areas every once in a while but meh-not worth it & not a fave of mine. TATCHA - Luminous Dewy Skin Mist Also-not in love. Is it nice when I’m dried out? Yeah! Does it last? Nooooot really? Meh-I have it I’ll use it & I won’t buy again... TATCHA - Silken Pore Perfecting Sunscreen Broad Spectrum SPF 35 PA+++ Meh-this is just....meh. Again will use it up & not rebuy....
The Trunk 4.0🎪🐘
🎪DRUNK ELEPHANT - The Trunk 4.0 This kit comes fully stocked with everything you need for a truly complete skincare routine & a swift getaway! 🛩☁️ I wouldn’t travel right now, even if you paid me. Covid numbers aren’t going down & I take these facts very seriously. Haven’t had contact with almost anyone since March, because I do have a neurological disease that could put me at risk. I can’t tell anyone what to do... but do I urge you to consciously protect strangers while protecting yourself & your loved ones. My condition is one often referred to as an “Invisible Illness”. Many people have health conditions that others don’t outrightly see. Most people think I’m completely able-bodied unless I’m seen limping or having convulsions. I’ve only had this condition since 2014, so it’s been an adjustment & learning experience for my own prejudgements as well. 🧳My bf really likes the Monos locking suitcase & encouraged me to purchase this while the big Sephora sale was going on. He has to travel for his essential-work sometimes & this is a perfect carry-on size! It’s just as wide & deep as the ‘Monos Carry-On’ ($293) & only 4” shorter. specs: 18” high x 14” wide x 9” deep. Monos describes their Carry-On as: Designed to comply with the size restrictions of as many airlines as possible, & fits in the overhead bin of nearly any flight. So I think this slightly shorter rolling suitcase would 99% likely be accepted as a carry-on. 💚Really impressed with the quality! Its lightweight but well structured, great features/compartments + an antibacterial laundry bag. I’m totally new to Drunk Elephant, but I wanted to try their L-Ascorbic Acid serum, Glycolic Acid serum & the Babyfacial🍼🐘 I also want to start using a gentle retinol. Those 4 products alone would have been $324! With my Rouge discount: $360! Regular price is $450- You get 10 full size products, 3 minis +5 sample packets. 18 different things to try! ➖Which would you like me to review first?➖ 🐘I want to trial everything before I review!

Fight those wrinkle while you sleep
One product I purchased and never cared to use was Sleep Tight. It’s a lightweight balm that is to be used as a sleeping mask. It helps moisturize, firm and tone as well as reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles overnight. It’s good for all skin types. You can use day or night but I suggest nightly because to me it leaves an oily type of texture/look. Take a small amount and warm it in between your palms and press it into your skin. The balm will transform into oil/gel. Again, at first I did not like this as it seemed a bit tacky and I’d find my hair sticking to my face - along with my pet hair. But after a bit of trail and error I found I wasn’t warming it enough and pressing it into my skin was the key. Also Farmacy Beauty suggests using a non water based moisturizer with Honeymoon Glow as Water based products can alter the acidic pH of Honeymoon Glow (as well as other AHA/BHA serums) and reduce its efficacy. Therefore it is recommended that Honeymoon Glow is applied directly onto cleansed, dry skin and followed up with a face oil for best results! Another great option would be FARMACY - Honey Grail Ultra-Hydrating Face Oil ✨ . ———- Farmacy Beauty keeps coming up with duos that you just can not go without: FARMACY - Green Clean Makeup Removing Cleansing Balm 🐝 FARMACY - BEE CLEAN ———- FARMACY - BEE CLEAN 🐝 FARMACY - Honey Body Butter Ultra-Hydrating Body Cream ——— FARMACY - BEE CLEAN 🐝 FARMACY - Sleep Tight Firming Night Balm . ——- And and my own fave duos: FARMACY - Honey Potion Renewing Antioxidant Hydration Mask 🐝 FARMACY - Honey Drop Lightweight Moisturizer ——- FARMACY - Very Cherry Bright 15% Clean Vitamin C Serum with Acerola Cherry 🐝 FARMACY - Daily Greens Oil-Free Gel Moisturizer with Moringa and Papaya What’s your favorite Farmacy Beauty product?

Drunk Elephant review
I'd long been curious about whether Drunkelephant was worth the hype. It's now been over a month, so here are some of my thoughts: ▪️ I was super skeptical about the protini cream being enough for my dry skin, especially since it's been touted as being an HG for oilier skin types. That said, I actually really like it for the daytime! My skin absorbs it quickly and is left feeling soft and plump! During the winter, I need something a bit heavier at night, but come summer, this will come in handy (if it lasts that long!) DRUNK ELEPHANT - Protini Polypeptide Cream ▪️ the best jelly cleanser is nice, but for $34 I expect a bit more, and ultimately I prefer my glossier MJC that's half the price DRUNK ELEPHANT - Beste No. 9 Jelly Cleanser Deluxe Sample ▪️ LOVE babyfacial! It's by far my favorite resurfacing mask, though I'm very careful with how often I use it, as it's quite potent and I don't want to compromise my skin's moisture barrier. I probably reach for it once a month, and that works for me. $80 is pretty steep, but you only need a thin layer, so it should easily last for months. DRUNK ELEPHANT - T.L.C. Sukari Babyfacial Mask ▪️ b-hydra serum is the best thing they make in my opinion! It's so lightweight, yet incredibly hydrating, so it's perfect for layering on top of other treatments and/or before creams. At $52, it's not cheap, but it's a decent size and you only need a couple pumps per application. I'm so sold on this that I'm already planning on buying a backup if I can find it on sale this weekend! DRUNK ELEPHANT - B-Hydra Intensive Hydration Serum
DRUNK ELEPHANT-B-Hydra Intensive Hydration Serum
In the (short) time I have used retinol in my regime, I’ve come up with a system for ultimate hydration to keep those nasty little side effects at bay. I call it my Retinol Rehab Regime! . I love love LOVE the farmacy Hydrating Coconut Gel Sheet Mask! It contains Coconut Water, Hyaluronic Acid, Provitamin B5, Vitamin E and Antioxidants, and really does hydrate wonderfully without causing any breakouts or irritation. This is probably the only sheet mask where like the “sheet” itself. It has a super thin gel-like texture, which makes it a little difficult to maneuver at first, but once it’s on it stays put. So I can easily go about doing other things. Let’s call it masking and multitasking approved! I always reserve the extra essence and use it as a hydrating serum for the next few days. I like to pour it directly into a little jar (the packaging from the mini Laneige water sleeping mask is perfect for this). . I’m a BIG fan of drjart Ceramidin! It has quite literally saved my skin this winter. After adding Ceramidin to retinol nights, I have experienced zero peeling or irritation. . Lately, I have been using drunkelephant Shaba Complex as my PM eye cream. I do find Shaba is a little lighter than I prefer for PM eyes, but it is packed with so many wonderful ingredients like Black Tea Ferment and Sea Buckthorn Oil. To get around the “lightness” of the cream I usually pair it with a facial oil (I like the KoraOrganics Noni Radiant Eye Oil)

My intensely hydrating morning skincare routine!
My morning (am) skincare routine!! 🌿Skin type- my skin type is very dry in the winter but pretty normal in the summer! My skin is never oily! My face tends to get some redness, but my skin isn’t acne prone at all! 🌿My morning skincare routine- the first thing I use in the morning is cleanser! My favorite one for the morning is the olehenrikson truth juice cleanser! This smells exactly like oranges and is super fresh, and really helps to wake me up in the mornings! It is very brightening which is great for before I do my makeup, but it also leaves my skin super moisturized and didn’t leave it striped! the next product I use is an essence mist! My favorite essence mist is the Saturday skin daily dew hydrating essence mist! This is a very refreshing and hydrating mist! This helps to deliver moisture over and under makeup which I love for my dry skin! The third product I use is serum! My favorite morning serum is the volition beauty strawberry serum! This serum helps to brighten my face with also giving it a dewy glow that I love! And it does all of that while also moisturizing my skin as well, it is very hydrating and helps clear dry spots on my face as well! The next product I use is eye cream! My favorite morning eye cream is the Saturday skin wide awake brightening eye cream! This eye cream is very hydrating, and also illuminates and refreshes the eye area all without striping my under eyes moisture which is awesome! The final product that I use in the morning is moisturizer! I love the fresh vitamin c glow moisturizer for the morning so much! It’s a very lightweight moisturizer that still carries lots of moisture which is super helpful before putting on a full face of makeup! It awakens skin for a daily dose of glow but keeping true to its hydrating properties, which is exactly would I need for my dry skin! 🌿how I discovered my morning routine- I kinda just slowly started to discover amazing products that worked super well for my dry skin! After talking with a bunch of friends and people on social media, I had lots of recommendations of products for dry skin! I would always read reviews on products and one day I had an amazing routine that worked miracles on my skin for the morning time! 🌿how long have I been using this am routine- I have been using this routine for about 8 months now and my experience couldn’t be better, it is absolutely amazing for my dry skin friends! OLE HENRIKSEN - Truth Juice Daily Cleanser SATURDAY SKIN - Daily Dew Hydrating Essence Mist SATURDAY SKIN - Wide Awake Brightening Eye Cream with Avocado VOLITION - Strawberry-C Brightening Serum fresh - Vitamin C Glow Moisturizer
SATURDAY SKIN-Daily Dew Hydrating Essence Mist
I have been loving SO many of these products but right now my current favorites are - ✨ tatcha the dewy skin cream - this cream is so thick & luxurious and I find that a little goes a long way. No joke - I catch a glimpse of myself in the mirror and am like, daaayyyyuummm that’s some glowyskin 💜 ✨ drunkelephant c-firma vitamin c day serum & the T.L.C. Framboos glycolic night serum. Both of these combined have done wonders for my skin. My skin is smoother, brighter, less textured. I’m truly a believer now of drunkelephant ... I’ve officially been converted. Now I just have to save up my pennies to buy the big sizes! - ✨ glowrecipe blueberry bounce cleanser - I’ll admit it, I am a cleanser junkie. It’s my favorite part of the skincare routine and I have so many favorites. This is new to my collection and I was skeptical but it is SO good. It lathers up so nicely and my skin truly feels squeaky clean afterwards. It has a blueberry/soap smell which is odd but I don’t mind it at all. And as always, glowrecipe kills their packaging!
