You Don’t Think You Need Essence Until You Come Across This!
If you’re a skincare addict like me, you know as well as I do that glycolic acid is such a power ingredient when it comes to minimizing fine lines, evening out the skin tone, treating huge pores, and sloughing off dead skin cells. So, when I came across this essence, I knew I had to try it out. CAUDALIE - Vinoperfect Brightening Glycolic Essence

Essences I’m currently using ✨ 🤍Caudalie Vinoperfect Brightening Glycolic Essence: I like how this essence makes my overall complexion really bright and glowy! This essence isn’t hydrating enough for me on its own, but I find that with mostly all essences I need to follow up with a hydrating toner or serum for my dry skin. Because this has glycolic acid in it, I can’t use it everyday otherwise my skin texture will get worse so I use this a couple time a week. 🤍 Missha Time Revolution Artemisia Treatment Essence: I think I talk about this essence so much but it really do love it! I’ve been using this for about 4 months now and it has helped reduce the breakouts it get on my cheeks! It’s also just great at calming my skin down when its feeling a little sensitive.
look inside my travel bag! how’d I do?
let me start by saying I always always always miss my skincare collection when I travel. it is nearly impossible for me to condense everything I’ll want to use in a small, TSA-approved, clear bag! but here was my last attempt: CLIO - Micro-Fessional Cleansing Oil I use this before I double-cleanse because I use waterproof mascara. this cleansing oil was INCREDIBLE. I didn’t even need a cotton round for this, just applied it using my fingers. it got it all off! smells so good, and non irritating at all! not surprised though, korean skincare is where it’s at . FARMACY - Green Clean Makeup Removing Cleansing Balm I always double cleanse—my favorite first cleanser is this one. it is hands down the best I’ve ever used. you apply it to dry skin, massage it in, and then add water to emulsify. it rinses completely clean, never leaves residue, and get EVERYTHING off DRUNK ELEPHANT - Beste No. 9 Jelly Cleanser Deluxe Sample this is just aight. idk what to say about it. it does it’s job, but I don’t think the brand, it’s values, or the price tags align with me. not into it. I’m just using this so it ends lol. GLOW RECIPE - Watermelon Glow PHA+BHA Pore-Tight Toner the only reason I didn’t give this 5-stars is because it is kinda anti climatic. it didn’t do anything wrong, but it didn’t wow me. I reserve my 5 stars for things that really impress me! CAUDALIE - Vinoperfect Brightening Glycolic Essence I love caudalie, but same. this feels, looks, and smells like water. meh. Embryolisse - Lait Crème Concentré I LOVE this stuff. I’ve used it as a mask, a moisturizer, and as a primer. perfect for everything. but as a mask it definitely protects and brightens! it also lasts a super long time. love this thing. PETER THOMAS ROTH - Max Sheer All Day Moisture Defense Lotion SPF 30 Sunscreen Lotion top 3 favorite sunscreens of all time. perfect finish, no white cast, absorbs quickly, and leaves the most beautiful finish on my skin. I have a couple backups of this! okay—so how’d I do? would you use my skincare if you needed a routine? let me know in the comments!! ♡
Kiehl’s Midnight Recovery Concentrate
I believe the 𝐌𝐢𝐝𝐧𝐢𝐠𝐡𝐭 𝐑𝐞𝐜𝐨𝐯𝐞𝐫𝐲 𝐂𝐨𝐧𝐜𝐞𝐧𝐭𝐫𝐚𝐭𝐞 has been a best-seller of Kiehl’s for many years now. The company website claims that the product... * 𝘝𝘪𝘴𝘪𝘣𝘭𝘺 𝘳𝘦𝘥𝘶𝘤𝘦𝘴 𝘧𝘪𝘯𝘦 𝘭𝘪𝘯𝘦𝘴, 𝘳𝘦𝘧𝘪𝘯𝘦𝘴 𝘴𝘬𝘪𝘯’𝘴 𝘵𝘦𝘹𝘵𝘶𝘳𝘦 𝘢𝘯𝘥 𝘣𝘰𝘰𝘴𝘵𝘴 𝘳𝘢𝘥𝘪𝘢𝘯𝘤𝘦 𝘪𝘯 𝘫𝘶𝘴𝘵 𝘰𝘯𝘦 𝘯𝘪𝘨𝘩𝘵 * 𝘏𝘦𝘭𝘱𝘴 𝘴𝘮𝘰𝘰𝘵𝘩 𝘢𝘯𝘥 𝘧𝘪𝘳𝘮 𝘴𝘬𝘪𝘯’𝘴 𝘢𝘱𝘱𝘦𝘢𝘳𝘢𝘯𝘤𝘦 * 𝘉𝘰𝘰𝘴𝘵𝘴 𝘦𝘴𝘴𝘦𝘯𝘵𝘪𝘢𝘭 𝘮𝘰𝘪𝘴𝘵𝘶𝘳𝘦 𝘵𝘰 𝘩𝘦𝘭𝘱 𝘳𝘦𝘴𝘵𝘰𝘳𝘦 𝘵𝘩𝘦 𝘢𝘱𝘱𝘦𝘢𝘳𝘢𝘯𝘤𝘦 𝘰𝘧 𝘵𝘪𝘳𝘦𝘥-𝘭𝘰𝘰𝘬𝘪𝘯𝘨 𝘴𝘬𝘪𝘯 * 𝘓𝘦𝘢𝘷𝘦𝘴 𝘴𝘬𝘪𝘯 𝘴𝘰𝘧𝘵, 𝘴𝘶𝘱𝘱𝘭𝘦 𝘢𝘯𝘥 𝘩𝘺𝘥𝘳𝘢𝘵𝘦𝘥 𝐊𝐞𝐲 𝐈𝐧𝐠𝐫𝐞𝐝𝐢𝐞𝐧𝐭𝐬: 𝘌𝘷𝘦𝘯𝘪𝘯𝘨 𝘗𝘳𝘪𝘮𝘳𝘰𝘴𝘦 𝘖𝘪𝘭 - an effective on skin barrier repair and boosting radiance. 𝘓𝘢𝘷𝘦𝘯𝘥𝘦𝘳 𝘌𝘴𝘴𝘦𝘯𝘵𝘪𝘢𝘭 𝘖𝘪𝘭 - helps soothe inflamed or irritated skin while helping reduce skin blotchiness for a more even look. 𝘚𝘲𝘶𝘢𝘭𝘢𝘯𝘦 - a botanical lipid that is similar in molecular structure to natural skin lipids. It has an exceptional affinity to skin, and because it’s easily absorbed, Squalane helps restore skin’s natural moisture balance to keep it extra soft and supple. 𝐏𝐚𝐜𝐤𝐚𝐠𝐢𝐧𝐠: Product is in a blue glass bottle with a pippette 𝐓𝐞𝐱𝐭𝐮𝐫𝐞: Lightweight oil texture. It felt quite heavy at first, especially on my T-zone. But I noticed that it absorbs beautifully onto skin overnight. 𝐒𝐦𝐞𝐥𝐥: It’s very botanical and has a strong lavender scent. You’ll definitely love smelling the lavender before sleep! It’s so relaxing! 𝐌𝐲 𝐭𝐡𝐨𝐮𝐠𝐡𝐭𝐬 𝐨𝐧 𝐭𝐡𝐞 𝐩𝐫𝐨𝐝𝐮𝐜𝐭: I have been using the concentrate for almost two months now. I don’t think I can speak about long term results yet but I did fall completely in love with it, I can’t skip it on my night time routine! Let me tell you what I like about the product: 1. It’s super hydrating! Makes your skin so supple and plump, it’ll be perfect for winter time. 2. Visibly reduces redness and skin irritations. I didn’t expect it but it has been keeping my acne bay. I can feel the oil working deep down my skin. 3. Makes you wake up to a well-rested and brighter complexion. 4. Boosts skin's defences against environmental damage and the signs of aging. It's never too early to start with either! 5. It lasts a really long time! For anyone who likes natural products or for people looking for a good hydrating and anti-aging serum, I think this will be worth the try! 𝗪𝐨𝐮𝐥𝐝 𝐈 𝐫𝐞𝐩𝐮𝐫𝐜𝐡𝐚𝐬𝐞? YES 𝐑𝐚𝐭𝐢𝐧𝐠: 5/5 ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ *EDIT : this is basically made with essential oils! If you’re sensitive on these ingredients, it’d be best to skip it!
Kiehl's-Midnight Recovery Concentrate
INGREDIENT HIGHLIGHT: HYALURONIC ACID
What is it? Hyaluronic acid is a sugar molecule that occurs naturally in the skin. It binds water to collagen, trapping it in the skin, thereby keeping skin plump, healthy and hydrated. Why is it important? There are several factors that can make skin dehydrated. HA acts as a humectant to attract water to the skin thus increasing hydration. HA is great for all skin types as it retains moisture, improves appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, replenishes cell moisture, speeds wound healing. Medik8 - HYDR8 B5 Liquid Rehydration Serum This is my favourite hydrating serum. I also like their Hydra8 B5 Intense serum. It contains a blend of Hyaluronic acid and Vitamin B5. It improves skin texture, boosts moisture retention, and keep the skin healthy. It also helps rebalance moisture levels in oily skin. It has anti-inflammatory and anti-itching properties. It has a lightweight watery texture. It is vegan and cruelty-free, suitable for all skin types including the sensitive skin. It has a oil-free formulation. It has a glass packaging. I use 5-6 drops of it after cleansing my face, both in my morning and evening routine. It absorbs easily into the skin. It plumps up my skin along with deeply hydrating. This serum provides much needed moisture boost to my normal to dry skin. The price is $49 for 30 ml . I recommend this to everyone especially who has dehydrated skin. This serum will provide deep hydration along with other skin benefits. #CherieCreator

Estee Lauder evening skincare regimen
Estee Lauder Micro Essence I’ve been following tons of beauty content creators on YouTube and Instagram, but I am more drawn to those who have so much respect for the skin that their content is more about skin care than makeup. After all, if your skin looks good, your makeup will look fantastic. I discovered this holy grail product from Australian beauty editor, Eleanor Pendleton. I think she’s a global beauty ambassador of Estee Lauder hence she has tons of their golden products. I must admit, the price is a bit too much for an essence, but I think SK-II is even more expensive. But with all my research, I learned that essence is an integral part of your skincare regimen. When I first tried on this essence, I noticed that my skin became hydrated. The product is very light and watery so it’s good for layering. I use it with a gentle cleanser, then this, followed by a serum, and a rich moisturizer. I have dry combination skin, which is pretty sensitive too, so as much as I can, I stay away from highly fragrant products. This isn’t smelly, and my skin doesn’t react to it hence I think it’s perfect for sensitive skin. Paired with Estee Lauder Advanced Repair Night Serum, this product is a bomb! A lot of people on YouTube say this is investment for your skin and if you keep taking it, you will never age. I like that phrase so I’m sticking to this product. Estee Lauder Advanced Night Repair Serum I’ve said it once and I’ll say it again- this is arguably one of the best skincare products that I’ve tried all my life, and I have tried a lot. It’s hydrating, it instantly plumps up the skin, gentle on my face, and has a brightening effect. It’s just perfect for me. I’m so happy I decided to purchase this even if I find it very expensive. Definitely a must try especially if you’re already in your 30s. We need to take care of our skin as early as we can. Our future selves will thank us. :)
Mixing Vitamin C + Retinol – Yes or No?
One of the most effective combinations of skincare ingredients I can vouch for is Vitamin C + Retinol. Vitamin C is such a power antioxidant in our lives, in both the food we consume or in our skin care. My combination skin, with dry cheeks and a shiny T-zone benefits so much from Vitamin C, especially on days when my skin looks lackslustre and dull. Vitamin C definitely helps to boost my skin radiance and evens out my skin tone. Retinol is a derivative of vitamin A, one of the most useful remedies for signs of aging skin. It is also the top ingredient prescribed by dermatologists to improve the appearance of collagen-depleted skin, boost skin renewal and reduce the signs of aging. As there are contrasting pH levels of retinol and vitamin C, it is believed that both ingredients should not be applied together. However, studies have shown the retinol-vitamin C combination to be effective in reversing both natural aging. My trick is to use them at separately in my day and evening routines. Vitamin C is known to increase the effectiveness of retinol by stabilizing the ingredient. When applied correctly, both can form a barrier that shields the skin from the harmful environmental factors that cause skin damage, such as sun rays and pollution. An easy way for me to incorporate both ingredients in my skincare routine is CLINIQUE - Fresh Pressed Clinical Daily + Overnight Boosters With Pure Vitamin C 10% + A (Retinol). The booster serums come in a set of Pure Vitamin C 10% for day use and Vitamin A (Retinol) for night use. The potent day-and-night serum system definitely helped to brighten and tighten my overall skin tone in a short time. The silky texture of both powerful serums makes it light enough for layering with my day or evening moisturizer, without causing bad breakouts. I highly recommend this product for fellow beauty lovers who are seeking a quick beauty boost on days when your skin needs a strong and powerful recharge. After use, the pores on my skin appear smaller and my skin texture definitely felt improved.

2 Awesome Serums for Dry Skin!!
ESTĒE LAUDER - Advanced Night Repair Synchronized Multi-Recovery Complex This is a very well-known product. The serum is lightweight, spreads well, and is also absorbed easily. After using this product, my skin has become more delicate and my pores are smaller. DRUNK ELEPHANT - B-Hydra Intensive Hydration Serum I have dry skin, so moisturizing is my top priority. That's why I decided to try the Hydration Serum. It has a translucent gel texture and dissolves quickly by rubbing it slightly on my palm. But unlike other moisturizing serums that leave a watery glow on the skin, it gives a matte finish, kind of like the effect the Smashbox oil control primer offers. I usually use it in the morning, either pairing it with other serums or just using it alone. When used alone, it doesn't feel like it's fully absorbed and it leaves sort of like a protective film on the skin. I've already repurchased it.

Skincare Routine That Will Give You Glowing Skin...
You can try out this set of skin care products if you're looking to correct your skin tone, lighten skin dullness, complexion and blemishes. The result after using the whole set is very obvious and my skin is getting more and more of a translucent glow. I have combination-oily skin and this set doesn't leave my skin feeling greasy and gets absorbed by the skin easily. My skin care routine in the morning: Ultra Facial Toner - Dark Spot Solution - Creamy Eye Treatment - Line-Reducing Concentrate - Re-Texturizing Serum Concentrate - Ultra Facial Cream! I'll substitute the Dark Spot Solution with the Midnight Recovery Concentrate at night. Kiehl's - Clearly Corrective Dark Spot Solution is Kiehl's signature product. It's a transparent serum which offers significant results in brightening skin complexion and moisturizing. Kiehl's - Powerful-Strength Line-Reducing Eye-Brightening Concentrate is a white milky liquid that gets absorbed easily and doesn't leave my skin feeling greasy. It mainly minimizes the appearance of pores, repairs and tightens my skin. Kiehl's - Hydro Plumping Re-Texturizing Serum Concentrate is a gel-like serum that's very hydrating. After it's massaged onto the face and absorbed by the skin, it really leaves your skin feeling great. Kiehl's - Ultra Facial Cream is a super popular moisturizing facial cream which is really moisturizing and doesn't leave my skin feeling greasy. It's suitable for fall and winter, and I've been repurchasing it again and again.
