innisfree - Super Volcanic Clusters Pore Clearing Clay Mask
I discovered this mask from my sister who has an endless beauty shelf. She made me try this because I kept on complaining about how big my pores become. I trust her opinion on skin since we’re both obsessed with skincare and we love researching about ingredients and the science behind a particular product.   I tried her volcanic mask, and it did feel great when I took it off after leaving it on for about 15 minutes. I think the key to a hydrated skin (when using masks) is to clean it properly, mask it on, then layer all the hydrating products right after.   I bought a jar for myself (it’s super affordable too so it’s a win win!) after trying the product once. I put it on top of my nose and on my cheeks- that’s it. It’s pretty drying and I have a dry combination skin so I make sure I apply it on areas alone where I have clogged pores. I use it once a week, and I’ve since seen the difference in the appearance of my blackheads. Some of the nasty blackheads on my nose have disappeared since using it. It really is a must have especially if you suffer from black or whiteheads just like me.   innisfree - Innisfree Green Tea Seed Serum
After a clearing session with the aforementioned mask, I use this serum as one of the layers I apply on my face to bring back its natural moisture. I love that this serum is super hydrating. After the first try, it felt like my skin was drenched with moisture. I didn’t even feel the need to put on my usual moisturizer when I use this. I especially love applying this all over my face, my neck, and my decolletage area.   It has been about a couple of months since I’ve been using this. I don’t use this every day though as I like switching up my products. I’ve seen that this practice works great on my skin. If you’re looking for a hydrating serum that fits the budget, this is the product to go for.

Affordable Clay Mask!
Finally trying the innisfree - Super Volcanic Clusters Pore Clearing Clay Mask This helps to minimize the look of pores, absorb sebum, gently exfoliate, and even skin tone. I’ve only used this once or twice and it leaves my skin feeling smooth. It has a thick, creamy texture and its only $15 😍 I like to put this in my t-zone and use it as a spot treatment. highlighted ingredients 🌋 ✨Jeju Volcanic Clusters: Finely ground hardened volcanic lava that helps absorb excess sebum ✨Lactic Acid: Helps exfoliate dead skin cells and minimize appearance of pores Have you tried this mask?

Hello & Any Advice? 🤍
Hi Y’all 🤍 This is my first post and I’ve been waiting to do this for awhile... ⭐️ I’m Maeve-Darly and I have Oily, Acne-Prone Skin. My main concerns are dark spots, hyperpigmentation, oil control, and pore size. ⭐️Currently, my morning routine consists of the products listed on the second page. I have bought a ton of products from the ordinary and had to make the choice to limit my products and keep my routine simple. I’m looking for a good toner if anyone has any recommendations and a good Vitamin C serum/product to add to my morning routine, as well! ⭐️Also, my night routine consists of the products listed on the third page. Again, I’m looking for a toner to add to my routine. Something that can brighten but I’m not really interested in a AHA/BHA exfoliating toner as I’ve heard that paired with Niacinamide on darker complexions it can have the reverse effect of brightening and clearing up hyper pigmentation. I’ve been using the mask from the Ordinary once a week on Fridays and it leaves my skin soft. ⭐️ I didn’t include this but I also occasionally use the innisfree - Super Volcanic Clusters Pore Clearing Clay Mask in the mornings or nights when I feel I need it. It definitely does give my skin an open and clear feelings sometimes in my morning use but I don’t know if it’s really doing something or if my expectations are just too high. ⭐️If anyone has any suggestions for a good brightening and non-drying toner and/or a Vitamin C serum, please let me know in the comments? Also, do other oily acne-prone folks have any thoughts on the CeraVe products mentioned? I’d love to hear y’all’s thoughts! Thank you so much 🤍

Target Blackheads With A Skin Clearing Mask + Custom-Made Serum
Products: ORIGINS - Clear Improvement Active Charcoal Mask to Clear Pores CLINIQUE - Smart Custom-Repair Serum   I wasn’t very much of a mask person as I thought they left the skin dry and parched. That was until I got my hands on Origins masks, specifically their active charcoal mask that’s targeted to unclog pores to clean them thoroughly thus, tightening and helping to shrink their size. I particularly love using a serum that’s specially formulated to target dark spots, lines, and uneven skin texture after unclogging my pores.   Origins Clear Improvement Active Charcoal Mask I use this 1 to 2 times a week, during nighttime, after I clean my face thoroughly. I love leaving it on for about 15 to 20 minutes before I tone my face and layering all the other skincare products I use at a given time.   I also love using it as a spot corrector when I have the occasional pimple. I love that it really works in getting rid of my pimple when I have one. I also saw that it literally takes out the blackheads that sit on top of my nose. I still have yet to see its effects on shrinking down the size of my pores though.   It doesn’t dry out my already dry combination skin, and I feel my face is super clean after leaving this on. It feels clean and detoxified but not dry and tight. I love this mask and will continue to use it!   Clinique Smart Custom-Repair Serum Clinique products will always have a spot in my shelf as their products have been working for me since my college years. Now that my skin has since changed and I have developed specific concerns, Clinique helps me in navigating this adult life filled with hyperpigmentation, unsightly huge pores, and uneven texture.   I specifically love using this serum on evenings when I mask as it helps me target the premature aging situation I have going on in my skin. I feel that the Origins mask unclogs my pores, and it then helps my skin prepare to receive all the goodness of the products I use after it.   Since using this product, I’ve noticed that my skin texture became smoother and softer. I don’t have any fine lines yet so I can’t attest to that, but this product has definitely helped in smoothing out the uneven texture of my face. Definitely a must try.

🌞For Oily Skin!🌞 Proven Way To Get Clean&Glow Skin in 3⃣ Easy Steps!
I have the oiliest skin with coarse pores, which leads to poor absorption of skin care products! 🤷🏻‍♀️🤷🏻‍♀️I am always looking for products that help remove dullness and acne scars. I finally found the combo that works well on me and give glow to my skin. I'm recommending this 3-step combo to those of you with the same skin problems! 🥰🥰 Step1⃣ AA Skincare Mint & Dead Sea Salt Deep Cleansing Face Mask Step2⃣: Dermalogica MultiVitamin Power Recovery Masque Step3⃣: Clarins Double Serum AA Skincare Mint & Dead Sea Salt Deep Cleansing Face Mask The AA Skincare Mask is a blue cleansing mask containing lots of cleansing particles. It feels like a layer of old keratin has been removed after using it. It's very comfortable and it cleanses and smoothens my chin and nose well. As I have very sensitive skin, sometimes masks leave me with a redness or a mild stinging. This facemask caused neither, and left me with gorgeously smooth soft skin, and a feeling of being very refreshed and cleansed. Another pleasant thing is that it's REALLY nice to have in this hot weather as it has a nice cooling effect! 💦💦💦 dermalogica - Multivitamin Power Recovery Mask The Dermalogica Masque has a pudding-like, springy, and moisturizing texture. It has a warming component when activated to skin.You can mix it with some toner and apply a thin layer to the entire face so that it is milder and gets absorbed more easily. You will DEF feel your skin becoming smoother and plumper after you wash it off.It really brings life back to my face when I'm feeling dull. Maybe a bit pricey but it's worth every single dollar!  CLARINS - Double Serum Complete Age Control Concentrate A small amount of it is enough for combination-oily skin. It's easier for skin to absorb skin care products after exfoliating, so using the serum in this step of the routine can really moisturize and plump up your skin. It felt a little oily after I applied it in the night.  But my skin became SUPER soft and bouncy the next morning and didn’t feel greasy anymore.  Those with combination-oily/oily skin can use this group of skincare products and expect great results! They're sure to make your skin look whitened and glowing when you wake up the next day. Give them a go! 💖💖💖 Do you have the same skin concern? What are some of your favourite solutions? 💞

DONT BUY IT - the popular “nightmares”
DONT BUY IT - the popular “nightmares”
·Kiehl's - Deep Pore Cleansing Masque Kiehl's - Rare Earth Deep Pore Cleansing Masque I don’t need to say how popular this mask is that at least 10000 YouTubers have recommended, that claims to fully clean up the skin and minimize the pores, etc... all sound great and attractive. So I got one to try.  But immediately it became a nightmare for me. After applying the mask for 5mins, my skin felt so tight and stiffy, so uncomfortable!! And so difficult to wash out!! 😭 definitely it’s not my type!!! · The Ordinary - Niacinamide 10% + Zinc 1% The Ordinary - Niacinamide 10% + Zinc 1% To be fair, The Ordinary has quite a lot of great products, like my fav caffeine eye cream, and the price is affordable that won’t dig a hole of your pocket. BUT, Niachamide 10% + Zinc 1% is definitely not the good one!! It’s really sticky and hard to apply, I was feeling putting glue onto my skin 😤 that stayed on my pores stopping the rest skincare to be adsorbed. More to a point, it does irritate my skin and cause the redness!!!!! I guess it’s because of the 10% niacinamide. So disappointed 😔

Drugstore or high-end?: kaolin clay
Drugstore or high-end?: kaolin clay
These purifying masks have one ingredient in common: kaolin clay. Kaolin clay is a cosmetic clay rich in silica and with a neutral pH. It is versatile and can be used on all skin types, including dry or sensitive skin. Benefits: Detoxifies and cleanses the pores: the pores are clogged with dead skin cells, facial oil and bacteria. Kaolin clay helps to remove this dirt from the pores and also makes them appear smaller. Absorbs excess oil: it is one of the mildest clays and absorbs excess oil without peeling or drying the skin. Fights acne. Skin soother: helps calm inflamed and irritated skin. I love it because it is a gentle ingredient that doesn’t irritate or cause redness, removes excess oil and cleanses pores. LA ROCHE-POSAY - Effaclar Unclogging Purifying Sebo-Controlling Mask Anti-Shine $19.99 It’s a purifying clay mask and skin mattifier for oily skin, removes excess oil, controls shine and removes impurities. It has a cream texture, is easy to apply, it leaves the skin soft, clean and without irritation after each application. SKINCEUTICALS - Clarifying Clay Mask for Acne Prone Skin $55 Clarifying mask that combines kaolin and bentonite clay, botanical and minerals to help calm the skin and hydroxy acid blend to gently exfoliate. It has a cream texture that makes it easy to apply. Leaves the skin hydrated, soft and clean. It is very effective and gentle on the skin. Both masks are good, Skinceuticals has greater effects because it contains a blend of malic, lactic, tartaric, citric and glycolic acids that help exfoliate dead skin cells. Both are a good option for combination and oily skin.

Sand & Sky- My Favorite💕
Sand & Sky- My Favorite💕
In this post I want to talk about Sand & Sky and how they’ve helped my acne-prone combo skin. THE BRAND 💕This brand is an Australian skincare brand founded by Emily and Sarah Hamilton. It is based on clean and effective formulas. They use Australian botanical ingredients. They are also cruelty free and a lot of their products use glass and even come with little tools like brushes to use their products. They tend to focus in pink clay which is a detox ingredient that absorbs impurities and combats pollution. They also more recently introduced their Emu Apple line which is a strong antioxidant which protects skin from free radicals and boosts Vitamin C production. WHY I LOVE THEM 💕I love them for all of the reasons above but also because these products really help my skin a LOT. The pink clay mask saves my face every time I use it and their new Enzyme Powder Polish is the gentlest exfoliant I’ve ever found that pairs beautifully if you get peeling from retinol products. They also share real results from people in their marketing. One time I shared my love of them on Instagram and they let me be part of their testing for a new launch! It was awesome. They wanted real results from me and honest feedback and that’s what I gave them but of course I loved the product because they create thoughtful and effective skincare. MY FAVORITE PRODUCT 💕My favorite product from this brand is the Pink Clay Mask. This helps me so much with painful acne and increases healing time. Pink clay removes impurities from the skin and this one is no exception. I’ve tried dupes of this like Gen Clay and none compare. This is a HUGE win anytime I have breakouts. ✨Swipe for Emu Apple Mask Glow! Have you tried them yet?

Why I love lactic acid?
Why I love lactic acid?
I’ve had acne for the majority of my life, and my skin turns extremely sensitive when seasons change—poor me. So I have to choose the right ingredients and products to get rid of acne while not damaging my skin. Life is so hard.😭😭 My friends always recommend products with acid to kill acne. But I never give it a go because I feel it’ll be terrible for my sensitive skin. Until last month, my friend gave me a small sample of REN CLEAN SKINCARE - Glycol Lactic Radiance Renewal Mask, told me it’s sensitive skin-friendly cuz the lactic acid inside works mildly to kill the acne and smooth skin. It sounds good, and why not have a try? It can’t be worse for me if it doesn’t work like others. 🤷🏼‍♀️ I did feel burning on my face when I first used this mask, and I felt so worried the nightmare came again! Guess what! It didn’t damage my skin. The magic came after washing off the mask, my skin looked super bright and shining, and my pores were gone! Huge surprises!!! Yeaaa! I can’t tell you how much I love using this mask. Today, I can proudly tell you, I seldom have acne, and my sensitive skin is well protected!! I’ve dreamed of this for so long. There is no doubt that lactic acid has become one of my favorite skincare ingredients. If you have the same problem as me, REN CLEAN SKINCARE - Glycol Lactic Radiance Renewal MaskIS WHAT YOU NEED! I strongly recommend it!!!👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻 Thank me later, ladies.
