Beautiful Acid and C Serum
I had honestly never tried any skincare from Tarte before this, I really thought of them as a makeup brand. Tested it out in Sephora and ended up loving the texture. It’s a smooth fluid consistency that goes on really nice and leaves one hell of a glow. Whenever I use this in the morning I have to stop for a sec and look at myself in the mirror like damn sis! It does feel a bit tacky like a lot of Vitamin C serums do at first but once it dries down and absorbs a bit it’s perfectly fine. Notable ingredients; a double shot of Vitamin C, glycolic acid, hyaluronic acid and apple extract. These all work to brighten, smooth, help with pigmentation issues and reduce the look of pores. Would recommend this if you’re into brightening and reviving dull skin or just love acid products like me.

Some warm toned empties
Here’s some empties I’ve been accumulating over the course of 2020 so let’s talk about them. 😍 = I would definitely repurchase or have already 🙃= I’m on the fence about it 💀 = Did not working for me 🙃 Kate Somerville + Retinol Firming Eye Cream- This one wasn’t bad but I didn’t notice a huge difference in firming or texture around my eyes and for the price tag ($85) I wouldn’t buy again. I also prefer a richer eye cream...especially at night and this one was a little lightweight for me. 😍 Drunk Elephant C Tango Multivitamin Eye Cream- I’ve been through about three bottles of this now and I’m obsessed with it. Nothing helps with my dark circles like this one does and it’s the most plumping firming eye cream I’ve ever used and is so so moisturizing. 10/10 recommend this one it’s the best eye cream I’ve ever used and my favorite Drunk Elephant product. 😍 A’Pieu Milk and Honey Lip Sleeping Pack- I really liked this one! Laneige is typically my favorite and this is a great dupe for it. The consistency just has a little more slip to it and it’s also half the price. 🙃 Sunday Riley CEO Glow- This one I’m on the fence about. I had some trial sizes of this and I used it when I was traveling and loved it. It gave my skin such a beautiful glow and I was getting so many compliments on how great my skin looked. However when I bought the full size and used it in a warmer climate in California where I live, it was a little too rich for my liking and my skin got oily throughout the day. I think if you live in a colder, drier climate your skin will love this. 🙃 Tarte Youth or Dare- This one is an exfoliating and brightening L Abscorbic Acid Vitamin C serum. The ingredients are amazing and comparable to Drunk Elephants C Tango. My skin looked bright while using this product but not...any brighter than usual if that makes sense. I just wasn’t especially wowed by it. 😍 Drunk Elephant Virgin Marula Oil- I’ve been through three bottles of this and I really love it. It’s lightweight and sinks into the skin almost immediately but still incredibly moisturizing. Gives my skin a beautiful glow and makes it super soft but without any greasiness.
Saturday Skin Bright Potion✨
SATURDAY SKIN - Bright Potion Probiotic Power Serum I have a combination skin and sometimes experience dull skin. This probiotic power serum is perfect for dullness and uneven texture. Serum is water like and layers beautifully with other essences and creams. My experience has been so well with this serum. I really like the ingredients in this serum like niacinamide & seabuckthorn. I would recommend this product to someone who’s looking for brightening power. The price is on high end but it’s totally worth it.
SATURDAY SKIN-Bright Potion Probiotic Power Serum
S A T U R D A Y • S K I N ✨the bright potion probiotic power serum highly enriched with probiotics and prebiotics. For those who don't know probiotics are really good bacteria that helps with entire body from the inside out. In the terms of skin probiotics these notable one help with a healthy complexion, while two prebiotics activate the full power of the probiotic infusion. Other key ingredients include Niacinamide for texture and tone, Irish Moss to soothe and seabuckthorn fruit extract to nourish skin. . ✨the formluation carries encapsules that release are you apply. I warm it while applying which causes product to emulsify on contact. It spreads beautiful and I penerates pretty well. Its a soft kinda nourshing. It feel like a gel essence rather than a serum. As for brightening I can see a glass like glow but nothing outstanding.

Bright and luminous!
H2O+ - Waterbright Illuminating Serum This illuminating serum works really well! There are not immediate results but after a month of using, I could tell a difference in the tone of my skin. My skin is brighter and less dull than before. I would recommend to anyone who has time to wait on bright, even skin.

PINEAPPLE-C BRIGHTENING SERUM
GLOW RECIPE - Pineapple-C Brightening Serum Product Claim: A potent, lightweight Vitamin C and AHA serum concentrated with smoothing pineapple juice and hyaluronic acid to brighten and even tone (from sephora.com) Key Ingredients: vitamin c, pineapple, and chamomile Texture: medium consistency serum like texture Price: $49 – 30 mL My Experience: I used this pineapple - c bright serum from Glow Recipe for a month and I can say I was impressed 😍 I can definitely say my skin was brighter and firmer🍍I use this serum in both my routines (AM and PM). It also hydrates and gives a glow which I love! Many found the scent to be a bit potent, but I personally didn't mind. Would I recommend? NO, I know I said I liked it but I don’t think it’s worth $49. Also, it took a minimum of a month to see some results unlike my favorite vitamin c serum from Pixi Beauty. I do like other products from this brand that I would get but this one would be a pass.

Kylie Skin Vit C Serum — Antioxidant Serum
Function: This serum claims to brighten skin. It contains Vitamin C to make skin look more lively and uses camellia leaf as an anti-inflammatory. It’s meant to target dull skin and “improve overall skin health” with the use of antioxidants. Texture: The texture is thicker than other Vit C serums I’ve used before. It’s a milky white, whereas many others are more clear/yellow in color. It applies more like a lotion, which I actually enjoy because it absorbs fast and doesn’t feel tacky. Thoughts: This is a really solid Vitamin C serum! I’ve enjoyed having it in my routine for the past few weeks. I feel like there was a lot of thought put into this product, from the packaging to the formulation. The container is opaque with a pump — this is important because these qualities protect the Vitamin C from deteriorating (air and light can negatively affect the star ingredient!). There are different forms of Vit C that can be used in skincare, and this one uses the most stable form that is also thought to be the best at penetrating the skin. Also worth mentioning is the fact that the Vit C is the second ingredient on the list, making sure that it is potent enough to be effective. There’s no added fragrance, so you definitely get that natural hot dog water smell that is unique to Vitamin C in skincare, but I’d take that over unnecessary fragrance any day! Overall, I would say I have noticed an increase in brightness and evenness to my skin, thanks to this serum. I’d say this is more of a 4.5 out of 5 stars, just because they could have added another element to this to make it more impressive. But I’d recommend it to my friends for sure, as an entry into using antioxidant serums if that is something that is intimidating! Price: $28 for 0.7 oz

EMPTY: Hydrating Vitamin C Serum
Omorovicza - Daily Vitamin C Serum was gifted to me and was the first vitamin C serum I ever tried. Like all good products, this one went too quickly. Would definitely repurchase if I had the $$$$. It’s super hydrating and really enhanced my skin’s brightness. I loved that the packaging kept the good stuff locked in and that I didn’t have to worry about it oxidizing or anything. The only thing that I wasn’t a fan of was how it mixed with other products - if it doesn’t agree with other products in your routine, it will feel a little sticky on the skin.

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
