One of my OG faves. Highly recommend to anyone. Great for acne prone or sensitive skin. Great if you have a hard time with conventional vitamin c serums. All around great for gentle and subtle hydration and brightening. Mad Hippie - Vitamin C Serum

This product is pricey, but it’s an absolute game changer. I dare you to try and find a dupe. If your over 25 and it’s in your budget, I highly recommend this. It keeps my skin feeling firm, bouncy, healthy, and plumpy.

Greatest Sunscreen Of All Time
I have never found a sunscreen that works so well. It is not irritating, doesn’t cause breakouts, and it feels comfortable to wear. I also love that it has such a high protection rating. I have repurchased this 10+ times and will continue to repurchase! It is very affordable, although a bit hard to find. If you have a hard time finding sunscreen you can wear everyday, I highly recommend give the Purito Unscented SPF 50 a try. PURITO - Centella Green Level Unscented Sun SPF50+

Dry shampoo with charcoal to absorb oils! 10/10
You know those lazy days when you just don’t want to do your hair? OR when you’ve done your hair and after a few days the curls are still cute, but that oily scalp is pretty gross! This is how to fix that. Dry shampoo with charcoal. IGK has 3 levels of dry shampoo with different percentages of active powders. For my hair, I need the most amount of active powders, so I use the First Class dry shampoo with charcoal and 7% active powders. My hair gets oily after 2 days. I typically wash my hair every other day and sometimes it can be a bit much, so on my lazy days I need dry shampoo. My hair is super fine so when that oil shows up.. oof it’s a gross slick and flat mess! IGK - First Class Charcoal Detox Dry Shampoo + aerosol spray. + charcoal detox spray. + strongest level out of the 3 dry shampoos. + 7% active cleansing powders. + adds volume! + spray directly onto hair. Let it sit and massage in. + sprays on white, but disappears when massaged in. + smells sooo good. + great for after workout pick me up. + use on really greasy hair and see a huge difference. + vegan & cruelty free. * comes in mini size and full size. Full size is worth it. $27 full-size $14 mini size.

My [hair]story 💇🏻♀️
Today I want to share with you a little bit about my hair, and why I personally prefer short hair 😋 (and a fringe!) So earlier this year I decided to cut a little over 30” of my hair! This is the longest my hair had been since high school. The photo on the left is about 5 years of letting my hair grow as long as possible, I literally went a little over 3 years without getting a proper haircut just because I was too lazy to go to the hairstylist lol, to get to my favorite stylist is about a 40 min drive from me but I refuse to go to any other stylist bc I’ve known mine since I was a child and she literally NEVER lets me down! And that’s how I let me hair grow wild lol. I’ve never been too attached to my hair like other women I’ve met, like I’ve had a pixie in the past, several different hair lengths, I’ve bleached it, I’ve dyed it pink, blue, purple, I just like to have fun with it because I think the best part of hair is that it grows back! And mine grows like weeds 😅 Anyways, as I was telling you, I personally feel much better with a shorter hair length and bangs. I think everyone looks 100x better with bangs 😅 like there’s a type for every face shape and hair type! I think a bob really suits my features and makes my cheekbones pop which I love! What’s your preferred hair length? Are you team long hair or short hair? 💗
My post-workout wavy hair routine 🌊
My hair is naturally pretty wavy, a bit frizzy and my scalp tends to get pretty dry during summer! I make it a point not to wash it more than just a few days a week which has been hard ever since I started working out regularly again and sweating SO much (I blame Chloe Ting 😅) but I still don’t like to wash my hair every day or else my scalp is just itchy and flaky and awful. What I’ve been doing to refresh my scalp and revive my waves is immediately go in with a powder (important!) dry shampoo like the Briogeo - Scalp Revival Charcoal + Biotin Dry Shampoo to soothe my scalp and also soak the sweat, then spraying the lengths of my hair with water and applying some amika: - Curl Corps Enhancing Gel it works great in my opinion! This routine brings my wavy hair back to life and makes it look less stringy and gross, the dry shampoo also adds some volume which I love! This routine’s been working great for me and allows me to go an extra day between hair washing ☺️

Acwell Licorice pH Balancing Toner💧 • It might be safe to say this is my favorite toner out of all the ones I have tried !!! It is called “licorice pH balancing” but fear not, my black licorice hating pals, it smells nothing like licorice. •However, it does have 10% licorice water as a main ingredient, which has a whole whack of skin-related benefits, like anti aging, brightening, discoloration, etc. •This toner is pH balanced if u didn’t catch that, to help keep skin balanced, especially when using acids, cuz u know they are acidic and all. pH of 5.5 is a prime pH for your lovely facial skin cells to thrive in •this toner doesn’t have much of a smell, is very gentle(my guy green tea extract is to thank for that one), leaves me soft and glowy (shutout to you, licorice water), and I have literally 0 complaints. I also love the idea of pH balancing my skin before I slap on a plethora of serums and acids😀Would definitely repurchase this absolute beaut!!! •I am currently using Pyunkang Yul essence toner, and next I want to try Soon Jung 5.5 toner.
