Mini Products, Maximum Hydrating Effects
Peter Thomas Roth Water Drench Hyaluronic Cloud Cream Hydrating Moisturizer I got this mini travel sized moisturizer as a free gift along with a purchase. I’ve been using this for 2 days now and I am seriously considering getting the regular tub. This product is packed with hyaluronic acid, and we all know that hyaluronic acid is responsible for making our skin look supple and youthful hence, anything that has HA in it is super hydrating and will really help our skin maintain its youthful glow. Within the short time that I’ve been using this product, I feel that it’s extremely moisturizing on my face. My face feels so plump and bouncy right after applying it. The moisture lives on even after a few hours after application. I use it in tandem with my normal routine of cleanse, tone, serums, and my dry combination skin has since been loving it.

Amber_MakeupAddictI have the tub of the cloud cream moisturizer and I love it! I got it at ulta and you can buy it in a set with a full size and I think 2 other travel size products for the price of the moisturizer! Definitely worth it!

My Current AM Routine
I feel like my routine is always changing due to purchasing new products to try and review, however here is my current AM routine. HOLI FROG - Tashmoo Water Lily Nourishing Milky Wash (fragrence free) I've only just recently started using this, but I will say I like this one. I find it similar to LA ROCHE-POSAY - Toleriane Hydrating Gentle Face Cleanser Holifrog is a little more hydrating since it feels like a lotion than a cleanser. The La Roche cleanser is a good dupe if you need something a little cheaper and at the convince stores. If you have dry skin I highly recommend Holifrog, but if you have normal to oily skin and are just experiencing some sensitivity (like your skin barrier) then I would go with La Roche. COSRX - Hyaluronic Acid Hydra Power Essence (fragrence free) I really enjoy this product because I feel like I am getting a good size value for the price. It also doesn't feel any different than any other HA essence or serum that I've tried (one being a very expensive one). Krave - Great Barrier Relief (fragrence free) This guy is definitely my holy Grail and I have reviewed it before. I use it daily due to my dry skin, but if you have normal to oily skin I definitely recommend having this on hand especially if you like to try new products and if it possibly irritates you or if you over do actives. PETER THOMAS ROTH - Potent-C Vitamin C Power Serum (fragrence free) I've also done a review already on this one. It is very potent and has a stable form of vit C, however unless you are trying to severely even out skin tone or remove dark spots, I would not spend the money. It is definitely pricey (almost $100). If you really need the potency of this product, then go ahead. Otherwise if you are just looking to fix minor issues/use it to go along with your spf, I'd go with a cheaper (still stable) product likeTHE inkey LIST - Vitamin C Serum 30ml(I have not personally tried this inkey list product, but have heard good things about it's ingredients as well as being a reasonable price) FIRST AID BEAUTY - Ultra Repair Cream (fragrence free) I am really enjoying this new product. It is a step up fromCeraVe - CeraVe Moisturising Cream which I also love for the simplicity and price value, but this one has even more soothing ingredients such as colloidal oatmeal. I like to use this in the morning because it doesn't make my face overly shiny before I head out the door and it also goes well under make up (with a primer of course) #Deoproce - Hyaluronic Cooling Sun Gel spf 50[products]#[FourStars] (NOT fragrence free) I just recently bought this sunscreen and it is my first Korean spf. I love how easily it goes on and it gives me enough glow without looking greasy. My complaint would be that it's not fragrence free, but I'm happy it got me started. Next I'll likely try Krave - The Beet ShieldorTHANK YOU FARMER - Sun Project Water Sun Cream

1.Neutrogena - Rapid Wrinkle Repair Night Moisturizer There aren't many skin care products that provide visible results within a week (aside from maybe self-tanners). So when I read that 100% of women reported seeing visible results within a week of using Neutrogena's Rapid Wrinkle Repair Night Moisturizer, I was skeptical. That's a pretty bold claim for a product that's available in drugstores, doesn't have botox in it and costs less than $20. Still, I wasn't skeptical enough to not try it in the first place. It's one of the winners of Good Housekeeping's 2019 Beauty Awards, and as long as I have a choice, I'd rather sport cat eyes than crows feet. One of the main ingredients in the night cream is hyaluronic acid. During the day, I use Neutrogena's best-selling hydro boost water gel moisturizer, which also features hyaluronic acid in the formula. Since I've been using the day moisturizer for years, I wasn't too worried about how my skin would react to the powerful ingredient. However, it's important to note that my face did mildly burn and turn red the first few days I used it. At night, I apply a dime-sized portion of the moisturizer to my face and rinse it with water. When I wake up, I look like I spent the day basking in the sun on a boat. I'm naturally pale, so I actually appreciated the color. The burning sensation didn't bother me much either. According to the instructions on the bottle, mild redness and a warm tingling sensation are normal indications that the product is working. For sensitive skin, the company recommends users limit application to every other night until your skin gets used to it. I was able to use it every night for a week with no major discomfort. After night three, I'd say the color and burning sensation mostly went away. I even know of a woman who actually uses this moisturizer day and night with no problems. She says one bottle lasts her about a month. I also love the lightweight feel of the formula. According to the bottle, there are 31 ingredients (but it feels like there are only three). Retinol is one of the key components of the moisturizer and it's also why this product works on fine lines and wrinkles. Retinoids are basically vitamin A in topical form, so they increase collagen production and the rate at which skin cells turnover. They also help fade dark spots and even out skin tone. 2. timeless SKIN CARE - 20% Vitamin C + E Ferulic Acid Serum A crucial player in the production of both collagen and an essential antioxidant is vitamin C which helps with rejuvenating damaged aged skin. However, when taken orally very little reaches the skin. To help combat effects of ageing, a natural vitamin C serum needs to be applied directly to the skin. When used topically, results show vitamin C serum stimulates the formation of collagen while stopping the effects of free radicals, helping people across the globe maintain a firm, youthful looking skin. An older YouTuber recommended Timeless 20% with E and Ferulic Acid and I tried it. It is the best one I have tried. It is water based and so use it quickly and use it not only on your face, but your neck, decollete and on your hands. I store mine wrapped in aluminum foil in a dark place to make it last longer. It looks like water when it is good, but if it turns yellowish, throw it out, as it will do more harm than good. Vitamin C is used on clean dry skin before anything else of a morning. It brightens the skin and is an antioxidant plus a hydrator. You can use any other water based serum over the top if you use others. Remember water based serums first and then moisturizers, sunscreens and oils. What kind of ingredients do you like to use together? Tell me below!
timeless SKIN CARE-20% Vitamin C + E Ferulic Acid Serum
The ideal day routine vichy. idealia has the perfect formula for everyone- a dry skin moisturizer, combo, normal skin and even combo-oily. Their serum is by far my favourite day serum to use, since it has a light, watery texture that absorbs perfectly, and has my favourite active ingredients- antioxidants. The antioxidants in this line is a fermented black tea and blueberry polyphenols- known antioxidant compounds that have been found to reduce free radical damage 😍 My biggest thing, even before pregnancy, and now more-so in pregnancy, is to incorporate antioxidants in daily skincare to protect from free-radical damage, especially since formation of spots, or melasma, becomes more common during pregnancy, so a combination of antioxidants and sunscreen is key 🔑 I love getting these actives in a serum, since serums get into the deeper layers of the epidermis better than a moisturizer does, but with Ideal, you can get the actives in both the serum and the moisturizer!
pair hyaluronic acid and moisturizer
🌊 Pair these products to get hydrated skin! 🌊 the products used here The Ordinary - Hyaluronic Acid 2% + B5 and Charlotte Tilbury - Charlotte's Magic Cream 🌊 Why should you pair up? Hyaluronic acid allows your skin to hold more water/moisture in, it basically acids as a carrier for water which provides hydration. Moisturizer layered over that locks in the hydration from a hyaluronic serum while usually adding more moisture through things like glycerin or other ingredients. Do use both! Do find a serum AND. moisturizer with hyaluronic acid. Dont just use a serum, as it can evaporate without a protective layer. 🌊 The Ordinary Hyaluronic Acid this is a thick serum that should be applied to the face after toner and before moisturizer. Hyaluronic acid is a key ingredient in retaining moisture in skin, as it can hold a lot of water. A little can go a long way with this serum in particular. its pretty inexpensive, and yields immediate results through happier, more hydrated skin! 🌊 Charlottle Tilbury Magic Cream This is a thick, rich moisturizer that is excellent for winter use and dry and sensitive skin. It locks in moisture and hydration throughout the day and keeps skin moist without a greasy feeling. I really like this moisturizer, but its a tad pricey.

This line focuses on repairing the skin barrier as bringing damaged or worn out skin back to life! 💜DeliKate Recovery serum- a nice milky serum packed with ceramides, omegas, and cucumber seed oil to quickly restore the skins natural barrier. I’ve been using this serum nightly and really enjoying it. It feels very soothing and calming to my skin! It’s also wonderful for after a day in the sun, the skin drinks it up. 💜DeliKate Recovery Cream- first of all did you even SEE the texture of this cream? It’s seriously divine. Also brimming with ceramides, peptides, and ginger root extract(to reduce redness) this cream is a great addition to your skincare stash. its rich and creamy, Soothing and calming. I did notice a difference in redness of my skin after using this. It can also be used as a hand cream to soothe rough and dry hands from all the hand washing going on!

My go-to skincare night routine🤩
I have combination skin as my T-zone is oily while the other parts are super dry. As you know, since we’re suggested to stay away from the crowds, I‘ve been staying at home for quite a time and the dryness caused by the air conditioner has been more severe. I must admit that it’s drunk elephant that pulled me out of the dryness concern.In my PM routine, I use Clinique’s toner, then drunk elephant’s B-hydra, followed with its Marula oil and end with the Polypeptide Cream. I’ll tell you in detail about this de’s family.Drunk Elephant B-Hydra Intensive Hydration Serum $48I got this baby from Sephora for $48. I think it not pricy for a 50ml face serum. It’s said that it can replenish the skin complexion and improve the look of skin texture and tone. I bought it for the concern of skin dryness, so I do not pay much attention to its targets of dullness, uneven texture and fine lines. I love the Pro-Vitamin B5 in it as it’s a good helper in holding hydration to the skin. The formulation is very light and it’s very blendable. It absorbs into my skin very quickly. I did feel my skin drinking enough water after applying this. One bottle can last a very long time so I think it’s really worth the price.Rate: 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟Will I repurchase? Definitely yes!Drunk Elephant Virgin Marula Luxury Facial Oil $72Since my T-zone is quite oily, I seldom use facial oil. However, after reviewing so much positive reviews on Cherie, I made my decision to have a try. It’s not cheap as the name says, luxury😅 but it did change my mind on oil. It’s very lightweight and really blendable, I love the idea of de’s skincare smoothies, so I often mix it with the Polypeptide cream, it can make the cream more blendable. It won’t make my face feel oily, which is amazing. I love the water-like texture and I do feel the hydration effect of it. But I seldom use it in my AM routine since I’m afraid of my oily T-zone. Considering the high price, I rated it 4 stars. Rate: 🌟🌟🌟🌟Will I repurchase? Maybe not considering the price.Drunk Elephant Protini™ Polypeptide Moisturizer $68This one is definitely my true destiny this year!!! Most of bloggers praise its effectiveness on anti-aging, but I would like to highlight its hydration effect. As I said, my skin was going through severe dryness. This moisturizer smooth my face and make my face so soft, without dehydration. The lotion-like texture is very lightweight and very easy to blend. I cannot help touching my face the next morning☺️ And for 50ml, $68 is acceptable. I really appreciate its cost-to-performance ratio. You can also try mixing it with the marula oil. I’ll repurchase this cream for sure.Rate: 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟Will I repurchase? Must.If you have the same dryness concern like me, please review below and tell me your fav skincare routine😉 I‘m very willing to explore more amazing beauty products.

My Mental Wellness Improved Through My Self AcceptanceWhen I was around 13 or 14 years old, I remember routinely taking one of my older sister’s black eyeliner pencils before school every morning. I’d arrive early so that I could slip away to the girl’s bathroom to apply a single black line to my eyelids. My parents didn’t allow me to wear any makeup at the time. Although this smudgy line on my eyelids didn’t make me look all that much different, I never felt comfortable at school without it. My teenage mind convinced myself that I needed some sort of cosmetic symbol in order to appropriately express my femininity. Up until that point in my life, society had told girls that looked like me - tall, Black, and with kinky hair - that we somehow weren’t as beautiful as the other girls. For far too long, I believed it too.Feb. 17
