And when it starts to harden on your face it doesn’t feel
Here’s what I’ve been think about the three that I’ve tried so far. Keep in mind that I haven’t been using these for long so it’s really more of my first impressions. 🌟Skin Dope with Argan Oil + 100mg CBD: I’ve said it before, not a huge oil person. But this oil is one that I find incredibly hydrating with only two tiny drops being enough to use. I’ve also used it on other areas of my body to soothe any random itches (I get these a lot for some reason). 🌟Argan Exfoliating Cleansing Powder: exfoliating powders and detox masks are my recipe to get rid of congested skin. This is really gentle on your skin and not too abrasive of a scrub. It’s gentle enough to use everyday, which I prefer to do at night. 🌟Whipped Mud Mask: I use this mask a couple times a week after exfoliating. It really helps clear up any congestion I have around my nose, forehead and chin. It doesn’t leave your skin feeling tight or dry although it is a clay mask. And when it starts to harden on your face it doesn’t feel like it’s sucking out all the moisture, leaving you unable to make facial expressions 😂 I chose these products based on the fact that there are no ingredients in it that I know my skin has problems with. I used Skincarisma to help decode the ingredients list before making my selection! If you ever need help reading an ingredient list I highly suggest Skincarisma, it’s like a better CosDNA in my opinion 😊

✨ Some of my favs ✨
These are some of my favorite brands that I 💙!! Purlisse and Yensa and both owned by the same company and make awesome skincare and beauty products. Skin Script is what I use in the treatment room and both my clients and I are obsessed with everything they create. A newer brand I recently discovered is InstaNatural! Hale and Hush is a very good professional brand if you have sensitive skin. Josie Maran can be found at Sephora, but their facial oils are awesome. Yeouth retinol is very gentle on the skin. Most, if not all, these brands are cruelty free, vegan friendly and free from sulfates, parabens and much more! pūrlisse - Blue Lotus Seed Mud Mask + Exfoliant YENSA - PUMPKIN TURMERIC 2-in-1 Radiance Polishing Mask JOSIE MARAN - Skin Dope Argan Oil + 100 mg CBD insta natural - Glycolic Acid Serum #skincare #shelfie YEOUTH - Retinol Serum with Hyaluronic Acid, Vitamin E and Aloe Vera
CBD or cannabidiol is the non-intoxicating component of marijuana or hemp plants. It’s extracted from the flowers and leaves of the hemp plant, whose THC content is exceptionally low. It is also important to know that CBD oil is not the same thing as hemp seed oil. CBD oil is richly concentrated in cannabidiol, whereas hemp seed oil only contains trace amounts of cannabidiol. It’s great for sensitive skin (rosacea, eczema, redness), acne prone skin and wrinkles and anti-aging. I bought the set sephora favorites CBD skincare and I have been really looking forward to review them. HERBIVORE - Emerald Deep Moisture Glow Oil An oil with 100 mg full spectrum CBD, hemp seed oil, and adaptogens to visibly calm redness and nourish skin. Skin type: normal, dry and combination. This is the product with which I have more time and I like it a lot, I usually use it when I want extra hydration. I love it’s smell, it is very relaxing. This oil contains cannabidiol, other products only contain hemp oil. It’s a heavy oil, it is not absorbed fast. Excellent for calming redness, in my experience it has not caused me breakouts. Price: $58 (1 oz). FLORA+BAST - Age Adapting CBD Serum An oil-only serum containing over 300 mg of CBD that works to reduce redness, clear acne/blemishes and restore skin youthful appearance. Skin type: normal, combination and oily. This oil is lighter, since unlike Emerald this is a serum. Another difference they have is that this helps clear blemishes. It has a strong smell. It leaves my face hydrated and glowing. Absorbs faster than Herbivore's. I have used this a few times, but I like its texture and absorption. Price: $77 (1 oz). SAINT JANE - Luxury CBD Beauty Serum An antioxidant packed serum with 500 mg of full spectrum CBD plus 20 potent botanicals that help hydrate, detoxify pores and boost skin’s natural glow. Skin type: normal, dry, combination and oily. This is the most expensive, but I think it worth the price. It’s a lightweight serum, quickly absorbed, leaves my skin calm, plump, hydrated and glowing. Smells amazing!! 😍 Price: $125 (1 oz). JOSIE MARAN - Skin Dope Argan Oil + 100 mg CBD A plat powered oil that helps calm and relieve fatigued, sensitive skin. It contains 100 mg CBD oil. Skin type: normal, dry, combination and oily. This contains CBD and argan oil. It’s a little more oily than Saint Jane's, but it absorbs well. I use it at night and I wake up with soft skin, it has no aroma. I also don't breakout with this. I have used this a few times too, but I think it works great. Price: $78 (1.7 oz). I love all 😍, my top 3 Saint Jane, Flora + Bast and Herbivore in that order. It’s true that they are expensive, but I think they worth the price. I recommend Herbivore for winter or people who have dry skin, since it is much more hydrating and heavy than the other oils. My next purchase will be the full size of Saint Jane 🙈 I love that it’s lightweight, the aroma and its fast absorption, it is the most expensive of all but the results are amazing.
My Clay Masks Awards
Caudalie instant detox mask CAUDALIE - Instant Detox Mask The cream is pink and dries quickly on the face. When I washed it off after using it for 5-10 minutes, my pores didn't feel unclogged and my skin didn't seem any more delicate. 😐 Josie Maran Whipped Mud Mask JOSIE MARAN - Whipped Mud Mask Argan Hydrating and Detoxifying Treatment-Cucumber Aloe This mask contains tiny matte particles. It was mild on the skin, but the advertised moisturizing, firming, smoothing, and skin improvement effects were non-existent. 👎 Peter Thomas Roth maskPETER THOMAS ROTH - Hungarian Thermal Water Mineral-Rich Atomic Heat Mask The thick consistency makes it difficult to spread on the face. After washing it off, I could see my skin glowing. But as for moisturizing, anti-aging, and filling fine lines, I didn't feel any such effects. 😐 Charlotte Tilbury Goddess Skin Clay Mask Charlotte Tilbury - Goddess Skin Clay Mask This CT mask feels great on my face, is easy to apply, and doesn't dry out completely. It can really give the skin a smoother appearance and unclog pores. After washing it off, my face felt delicate and smooth. 😍 L’Oreal Multi-Masking Play Kit L'ORÉAL - Pure Clay Multi-Masking Face Mask Play Kit I've used all three of the masks but they did nothing for me besides having a strong earthy smell and they were even difficult to wash off.👎
Hair and Mud Mask
OLAPLEX - No. 3 Hair Perfector What can I say about this product that hasn’t already been said? I usually use it overnight because then I can take my morning shower. It only needs 10-45 minutes but I’m a busy mom of two boys so overnight just works best for me. I have BLUE hair. Yes BLUE. It’s bleached to hell underneath and dyed blue. This miracle in a jar helps keep my hair incredibly strong and healthy. Without this mask my hair will surely be falling out. JOSIE MARAN - Whipped Mud Mask Argan Hydrating and Detoxifying Treatment-Cucumber Aloe I really love mud masks. I feel instant results everytime. This one has a wonderful texture that exfoliates EVER so gently while you apply it. It doesn’t have a wonderful scent but it’s truly not that noticeable or bothersome. I’m not a fan of mud masks that dry so tight it hurts your face to move and thank goodness this mask is NOT like that. It left my skin feeling firm and looking bright and clean. I am a big fan of this product and can’t wait for my next mud mask.
We all have abundant skincare choices but that also means rotating/switching products often and no empties. So, when I finally finish a product I’m thrilled. It also means I get to open a product from my never ending stash. Sharing some of my empties from this month: Femmue Flower Infused Mask: This is a Camellia flower infused hydrating gel mask. I want to try the Sandawha Camellia mask that looks similar and costs lesser. A beautiful mask, I enjoyed using this and would consider repurchasing. I like this better than the Fresh Rose Mask and The Body Shop British Rose Plumping Mask. Peter Thomas Roth Blue Marine Algae Hydrating Mask: Gel like mask, cooling and refreshing on application. It did hydrate my skin but it is just ok. Not one that I would repurchase. Klairs Midnight Blue Youth Drops: I got this in the Gothamista x Wishtrend holiday deal last year. I do not have an opinion on this yet and I would like to test it again because I did not use it consistently or test it like I wanted to. This goes back on my wishlist. Stratia Rewind: I am on my second bottle now. I do like it. Scinic Honey AIO: You get a huge jar for $19, it lasted me a year. Truly All in One ! Nights when I had no patience for a full routine, 2 layers of this followed by a sleeping mask were enough. I also used it with my powdered clay masks. Would love to repurchase but considering I am trying to stick to emptyone , I have to get through two Leegeehaam propolis ampoules before I buy this. Lenus Handcrafted Skincare Kelp & Honey Mask: fantastic ingredients, rejuvenated skin after each use. Only problem with this mask is the stringy honey like texture. I have discovered honey masks with a smooth creamy texture that I now prefer. Pacifica Sea Foam Complete Face Wash: A face cleanser made with 100% vegan ingredients. I purchased a travel size at Target during one of my work trips. It did not dry my skin post cleansing. It wasn’t bad but not one that I would repurchase.
FEMMUE-Flower Infused Fine Mask
A brand that’s WORTH it! I’ve fallen in love with Youth to the People. I’ve been so lucky to test out these amazing products of theirs. I love that they’re a cruelty free brand. They’re also committed to be eco friendly with their glass recyclable packaging, even in their minis! I enjoy all of these products but the few that stand out to me are YOUTH TO THE PEOPLE - Superberry Hydrate + Glow Dream Mask This mask is wonderful. Thick, creamy and hydrating it keeps my skin happy overnight! YOUTH TO THE PEOPLE - Superberry Hydrate + Glow Oil This oil is the perfect oil to top off your nighttime routine, and it pairs so well with the mask YOUTH TO THE PEOPLE - Superfood Antioxidant Cleanser a wonderful cleanser. Cleans skin, removes all makeup without irritating skin or eyes, doesn’t leave skin feeling stripped and dry. These are all products that I would absolutely purchase again in the future. I look forward to see what this brand continues to come up with
YOUTH TO THE PEOPLE-Adaptogen Deep Moisture Cream with Ashwagandha + Reishi
Fresh Umbrian clay mask- it’s okay, I mean it works the exact same as other clay masks and it’s so expensive for a full size so just not worth it in my opinion Fresh soy face cleanser- it’s a good face cleanser no problems but I cannot get over the strong cucumber smell I mean it’s not my cup of tea Fresh sugar strawberry cleanser- my current fave I went out and bought the full size after I used up the sample, smells like strawberries so I love it and is a gentle exfoliant too which I need Fresh rose cream- it’s okay but once again that cucumber smell gets me every time, feels good, hydrated my skin but the cucumber smell made me sick I cannot take that smell so no for me Rose face mask- it’s okay, felt nice and cooling, didn’t notice a huge difference with my skin so pass on that too Black tea face mask- when I put it on my face it was literally like spreading mashed potatoes on my face weird texture, I could feel it was very cooling and tingly especially around my pores and black heads which was interesting, I have textured skin and it didn’t take that away but didn’t hurt my skin, once again very expensive for full size and I don’t feel it’s worth it really The only product that stood out was the fresh strawberry sugar face cleanser , otherwise all the other products you can find dupes for that are less expensive and smell less like cucumber 🥒
fresh-Rose & Hyaluronic Acid Deep Hydration Moisturizer
Cleanse your problems away ✨
Ever since I tried two of the small versions of this cleanser I just couldn’t help but buy the bigger size. I absolutely love this cleanser! It removes all of the gross dirt and oil of my face and it doesn’t leave it dry. I have big issues with oily skin and I hate when some products leaves your skin feeling dry after cleansing. About the product: ✨ this baby has ingredients like Kale, which is rich in nutrients like vitamin C, E and K which leaves the skin glowing. ✨Spinach is another key ingredient, is has cooling properties and conditioning essential fatty acids (which is why this doesn’t dry out our skin). ✨ Most importantly it has Green tea which is an anti-bacterial and anti-inflammatory that keeps skin clear. This treats oily skin (like mine),fine liens, wrinkles and dull/uneven skin texture. I recommend this product to everyone who’s in the search for an amazing cleanser that will have all of the properties to help balance your skin. No need to look further!🤍 YOUTH TO THE PEOPLE - Superfood Antioxidant Cleanser

Reviews of a few empties!
LuLuLun - Face Mask Pink I absolutely love LuLuLun masks because they decrease single-use plastic. In one bag, there are a total of (7) sheet masks that is loaded with essence—not to the point of it dripping down your face but just enough for it to saturate your skin. It has never given me any problems, other than the occasional tingle sensation after an AHA/BHA session (so hence 4/5 stars(. It leaves my face feeling moisturized and hydrated. The morning after using this, my skin looks so much more radiant and dewy. FIRST AID BEAUTY - Ultra Repair Cream Intense Hydration this is amazing! I love how lightweight, fast-absorbing, and moisturizing this cream is. It was perfect for my entire body, especially dry areas like my elbows and feet. Absolutely. Perfect. FARMACY - Green Clean Makeup Removing Cleansing Balm frankly, this cleansing balm was just okay. It was super smooth but felt very thin so it didn’t feel like it was cleaning my skin. I guess I’m just used to thicker consistencies for my cleansing oils. Also to back-up my claims of it not cleansing well: I noticed more blackheads than usual and my pores felt clogged. So I don’t think this oil dissolved many impurities and sebum. Kind of glad to have finished it. Muddy Body - Detox Clay Mask overall, an amazing clay mask that does a great job at cleaning my pores. A bit drying, but that’s the norm for masks with clay. *photo contains gifted products
Muddy Body-Detox Clay Mask
Unicorn Juice ✨
This beauty isn’t just amazing on the outside, this cleanser has so many benefits for your skin! Hydrating hemp seed oil, mild glycolic acid and Lactic acid to improve the skins radiance! Hydration for all skin types! I was gifted by Acure and I just fell in love with this! I have been using this product for about two weeks now and I’ve been loving the difference hydration wise on my skin! The texture is creamy, however it lathers pretty well leaving your skin feeling clean and smooth. I always recommend this brand because it’s 100% vegan and free of parabens and sulfates! I always support brands who are clean and cruelty free! ACURE - Resurfacing Glycolic & Unicorn Root Clenser
