*find the rest of the video on my IGTV @valchemic ✨* I’ve loved Graydon skincare for a while, as they offer a clean yet clinically proven array of formulas, which have helped me with eczema, acne, milia, and dry skin. When they offered me a gift 🎁 of two of their products in return for a video, it was an easy, done deal because I already have a bunch of their other products 💙 Double Cleanse: 1) GRAYDON - Aloe Milk Cleanser
Key ingredients: niacinamide, black tea (antioxidant-rich polyphenols), apricot kernel oil (vitamin E, K + omega 6 rich), aloe vera juice Soothing cleanser, I try to leave it on my skin as long as possible to let it soak in all the goodness. Alternatively, it’s a good fast cleanser that can quickly remove relatively unstubborn makeup. 2)GRAYDON - Face Foam
Key ingredients: azelaic acid, blue-green algae (minerals & protein-building amino acids), white willow bark (salicylic acid), apple cider vinegar (pH balancing) I’m personally not a big fan of the scent, as it’s a little sour, but this is a nice gentle formula for a foam, which doesn’t leave my face feeling dry afterwards. I got this for the gentle exfoliating acids it contains, and I do notice an improvement in my skin texture since the last few months of using it! Note how I use a reusable makeup remover pad, it was made from leftover fashion fabric. I’m trying lol ♻️ Hydrate: GRAYDON - Face Food Mineral Mist
Key ingredients: magnesium, silver, zinc Lovely vanilla scent, soothing any irritation/inflammation from food allergies, pollution, etc. Reduces redness and acne-related scars. To enhance absorption, I love misting this on before adding any serums. Correct & Protect: 🎁 GRAYDON - Fullmoon Serum
Key ingredients: moth bean (botanical retinol alternative), moringa (vitamin C), senna (vegan hyaluronic acid), malachite (support skin exposed to pollution) Light texture, non-irritating formula has helped me remove some of the persistent milia on my skin. Fades occasional breakout scars after a couple of days. Smooths over my smile lines. Moisturize: 🎁 GRAYDON - Superfood Serum
Key ingredients: saffron (stem cell extract), raspberry seed oil (Linoleic acid), sacha inchi (Omega rich essential fatty acids), turmeric Not in love with the scent, as it’s a bit bitter, but the texture of the oil is dense enough yet not sticky and absorbs so well on top of the aforementioned products. And I don’t notice the bitter scent after mixing it with the Face Food vanilla-scented mist. This leaves my skin feeling smooth and well-nourished.

Graydon Skincare Pt 3: A surprise hit and a miss
The Product: Berry Rich Face + Eye Cream Plus the free samples that came with my order From the brand: “A probiotic face cream.This velvety-rich, blue-hued probiotic face cream helps maintain and protect your microbiome (aka your skin barrier) while improving hydration, enhancing your skin’s radiance and luminosity.” They say this cream is intended for dry and mature skin. My skin is dry-combo but acne prone so I was a little wary of this product. It came in the set however, and i figured I could use it on dry patches or even on my body if worse came to worst. BOY WAS I SURPRISED. I started off testing it on some dry itchy skin around my nose. When that went well, i took the plunge and put it on my jawline to wear under a mask. At this point, I was JUST starting to realize that the cure to my maskne might actually be to stop attacking it with acids and use MORE moisture and HEAVIER creams, especially under the mask. It seemed so counterintuitive at the time but I was willing to try... and it freaking worked! This is absolutely my favorite occlusive ever. I no longer dread wearing a mask because it means i can slather this over my face first 😍. I also tested it out as a skin protectant while skiing, and it preformed A+ as a wind barrier. It has the most delicious scent that reminds me of berry buttercream icing or something. It smells edible thats for sure! most surprising maskne cure for me, absolutely recommend for the dry acne-prone, and shocked to say I will have to repurchase soon 😱 GRAYDON - Berry Rich Cream Ingredient Highlights: * Arthrospira Platensis (Blue Majik) Extract: blue-green algae rich in phycocyanin, amino acids, vitamins & minerals. Helps increase firmness and smooth fine lines * Theobroma Cacao (Cocoa) Seed Butter: heals and moisturizes skin exposed to the elements * Vaccinium Corymbosum (Blueberry) Seed Oil: rich in vitamin C to brighten skin, minimize dark spots, & promote circulation to lighten dark circles * Lactobacillus Ferment Lysate (Vegan Probiotics): improve and strengthen skin barrier, maintain balance of good bacteria which send signals to your immune system to stop inflammation, keeping acne and rosacea at bay Samples: GRAYDON - Aloe Milk Cleanser This was a very nice gentle cleanser, but it didn’t feel any different than other, much cheaper, creamy cleansers. GRAYDON - Super Sensitive Skin Stuff Also a very nice gentle ceramide cream, but just not worth the price when so many drugstore creams contain ceramides (eg all Cerave products) GRAYDON - Green Cream This one I was really excited about and wanted to love. It contains TWO botanical retinol alternatives: moth bean extract (which I love so much in the Fullmoon Serum) and bakuchiol. Idk what it was, but I just didn’t like the smell... it smelled... bitter? to me, that’s the best way I can describe it. I also noticed some product pilling, but mostly the smell turned me off.

Oct-Nov Empties 🗑 🧴
[Swipe to see which ones I repurchased/replaced] It’s nice to get closer to a point where I know what works for me, so I don’t have to keep trying a bazillion new products that may ended up going to waste! ♻️ • GRAYDON - Green Cream Phyto Clear (fka Green Cream) sample replaced by a full sized bottle 💦 this botanical retinol works amazing as a spot treatment for incoming acne/recent scars & helps loosen up my milia. Can be used on full face for oily skin types. • calia - Organic Intensive Conditioner is one of the few hair products that doesn’t break my eczema-prone neck out & makes my hair softer, so already repurchased 👌🏽 • Corpa Flora seasonal Tangerine Tango cleansing oil - great for makeup removal & slightly emulsifies with warm water, repurchased the Corpa Flora - Beauté Divine Sensitive Skin Cleansing Oil sensitive skin version with next to no essential oils. • GRAYDON - Aloe Milk Cleanser was shared between my partner & me. Great quick face wash for sensitive skin. Might repurchase in the future, but for now I’m using up the @lifancenaturalskincare Restore (milk) cleanser, with gently exfoliating white willow bark, I’ve been gifted with👍🏽 • routine. - The Curator Natural Deodorant I LOVE THIS NATURAL DEO. They have a baking soda free version THAT ACTUALLY WORKS 👏🏽 I finished my 2nd jar of The Curator and now trying out Woah! blackberry Betty - makes me smell like berries 😸

Graydon Skincare Part 2: Face mist!
The Product: Face Food Mineral Mist “It gives your skin an instant glow-up by locking in moisture and creating a weightless protective barrier against environmental pollution.” This is another one of the products that donates $1 to Plastic Oceans with every purchase to clean up shorelines. It also comes in a 240mL refill size without the plastic pump! As with Graydon’s other products, this mist is clean, vegan, cruelty free, hypoallergenic, and safe for sensitive skin! I originally purchased the three-piece holiday set because I wanted to buy the Fullmoon Serum, but I also wanted to try the Face Food Mineral Mist, and it was just more cost effective to get the set! The brand notes that this mist can be used as a: toner, essence, after serum/moisturizer to help boost the absorption of actives, as a makeup finishing spray, or as a skin refresher! I don’t wear makeup, so I can’t speak to that use, but I have used it for almost every other purpose. My favorite use is applying it between serums or between a serum and my moisturizer. My skin likes to dry out quickly and sometimes it is hard to get products to absorb properly. When I first started layering products I had issues with pilling all the time. Adding in this misting step has helped with absorption tremendously! Additionally I love the gentle vanilla scent, and the anti pollution benefits. I live in a big city AND wear a mask all the time, my face can use all the protection it can get! This is quite pricey and I am wondering if anyone has suggestions for cheaper dupes? Because I don’t know of any dupes at the moment, I’m giving it full stars despite the price! GRAYDON - Face Food Mineral Mist Ingredient Highlights: White Tea Leaf Extract: high in catechins, the antioxidants in tea Magnesium: soothing to skin & combats skin allergies Copper: used in collagen & elastin production, and inhibits free radicals Silver: helps kill bacteria, reduces redness & blotchy skin, neutralizes harmful sodium-fluoride in water, & accelerates wound healing (including acne) Zinc: decreases inflammation, natural protection against UVA & UVB rays, & regulates oil production Malachite: semiprecious healing gemstone that detoxes skin, is an antioxidant and antipollution, & contains copper to increase collagen production Vanilla: Besides smelling delicious, is anti-inflammatory & also helps with wound healing/infections

Are Luxury Serums Worth It?
Everyone has a different priority when it comes to what they’re willing to spend some serious ca$h on for good quality. For some it’s cars, for some it’s shoes, for me it’s pretty much anything I consume, whether it’s food or skincare. Now this does not mean that I prefer to cash out on skincare, but since I am into clean beauty, it often happens to be more on the pricey side. When is it worth it? I personally think it depends on the source and processing of ingredients, rarity, and the brand’s vision. Hydration-based Serums I learned this about a year ago: when it comes to hydration-based serums, such as Hyaluronic acid, it’s best not to cheap out. I’ve started of with the $65 HA serum and it ruined my experience with an $8 serum and even a $32 serum. The two cheaper ones just didn’t compare, even though I was really hoping they would do it for me so I could save some coin. The texture of the cheaper ones wasn’t as plumping and it didn’t seem to be doing much for my skin. It was a mere experience of applying something on the skin 🥱 Overall, I find that the more expensive HA serums I gravitate to are usually more trustworthy and effective because their process entails thorough clinical studies. Recently I had the opportunity to try the GRAYDON - Fullmoon Serum 🎁 with key ingredients: moth bean (botanical retinol alternative), moringa (vitamin C), senna (vegan hyaluronic acid), malachite (support skin exposed to pollution). I was hesitating to get it for a while because it retails at $87 CAD, but then I was sent it for free from Graydon Skincare itself in return for a lil routine vid. Would I buy it again? Well, considering its light textured, non-irritating formula has helped me remove some of the persistent milia on my skin, while fading the occasional breakout scars after a couple of days, and smoothing over my smile lines... I am a big fan. So yes, I’d actually buy this luxury product. But I’m always on the lookout for a discount, so I could at least find a 15% off coupon code somewhere! Oil-based Serums For this one, I honestly feel like unless the oil itself is hard to extract and is a rare commodity, like plain organic jojoba oil, OR has extremely apparent healing benefits, there’s no need to empty out your whole purse on the counter! I probably feel this way because there are tons of face oils on the market. As long as I can find a non-greasy, nourishing oil, I’m content. Would I purchase GRAYDON - Superfood Serum 🎁 with key ingredients: saffron (stem cell extract), raspberry seed oil (Linoleic acid), sacha inchi (Omega rich essential fatty acids), turmeric? Well, I’m not in love with the scent, as it’s a bit bitter, but the texture of the oil is dense enough yet not sticky and absorbs so well on top of the Fullmoon Serum. Though it leaves my skin feeling smooth, I’m just not in a place in my life where complex oil-based formulas are that important to me. PeepThePackageLabeling😍

Drug store favorites you can’t pass up!
Drug store favorites you can’t pass up!
UPDATE TO ORDER OF PRORUCTS- As of 9/19/20 this is the new order of products - 1. Cerave cleansing wash 2. Toner of choice I use Clinique 3. The ordinary Niacininide and zinc - pat in and let dry 5 minutes 4. Retinol moisturizer - olay 5. Eye cream - olay 6. Kiehls midnight recovery oil. I noticed putting the oil on top of my moisturizer helps it to set in and leave me less oily! So I am a fan of buying things for a good price. And I understand getting what you want for your skin can be difficult - but these saved my skin. 1. CeraVe - Acne Foaming Cream Cleanser after MANY a recommendation to try this I caved and pulled the trigger. For about 15 dollars at Target I found a new foaming Cleanser. It’s got a quick clip open and close which makes it easy instead of a cap like some of my other face washes. It’s got a thin consistency but foams up when you rub it in. Over the course of two weeks my skin is nice and clean. Barely any visible acne in site 2. OLAY - Regenerist Retinol24 Night Eye Cream now the eye cream I’m new too. I started this on Monday so only a few days but I absolutely love the consistency. Easy application (I use my pinky) dab in the cream and swipe under my eyes. Unlike kiehls it isn’t thick and absorbs very quickly. 3. Kiehl's - Midnight Recovery Concentrate - for someone who had extremely oily skin I was hesitant about this product. But after using it for three months straight - it has helped even my skin and nightly oil production. I wake up and my skin is even. It smells wonderfully of essential oils and I use it on bug bites - so dual purposed ! It leaves a nice layer of oil but I let it sit for about 10 minutes before applying my nightly moisturizer. It doesn’t leave me greasy. It’s not drug store and a bit of a splurge but well worth it to me. 4. Last but not least - the product that i am so happy to end my day with - the OLAY - Regenerist Retinol24 Night Moisturizer . This product gets me through the day. For some of you it’s lunch time - for others of you it’s working out but for me - I look forward to use this product. Wild - I know. But it’s so greAt. So after applying shes 1-3 I add a dab to my forehead and cheeks and rub in. This is thick but not overbearing for my oily skin. This cocktail is absolutely amazing and has left me feeling clean and polished. And the next day you can tell it has done it’s job! Any questions drop em below and I’d be happy to respond! Good luck all and for drug store prices - you can’t go wrong !!

Morning Routine
Glossier. - Milky Jelly Cleanser I like the texture and the way it smells. Gentle on my face just not sure if it actually cleans my face. Glossier. - Super Bounce Hyaluronic Acid + Vitamin B5 Serum haven’t seen much of a difference and I’m about half way done with my first bottle. It does leave my face smooth but does not last all day long. CLINIQUE - Redness Solutions with Probiotic Technology Daily Relief Cream I have been using this for a few years. I have been diagnosed with rosacea on my cheeks. I haven’t noticed a decrease in rosacea. I just use this moisturizer because I’m afraid to try anything else and experience a flair up. CLINIQUE - Broad Spectrum SPF 50 Sunscreen Face Cream thick/white consistency. Makes my t- zone kind of shiny. My face: I would say combination. Oily T-zone. Blackheads on my nose. Cheeks and chin on the drier side. Thinking the dryness is from the rosacea. Any ideas and comments would be greatly appreciated!

Hyaluronic Acid + Tea Tree For A Smooth, Clear Complexion
Hyaluronic Acid + Tea Tree For A Smooth, Clear Complexion
Hyaluronic acid comes in different names, and one of them is sodium hyaluronate. HA is a substance that’s naturally present in our body. But, just like other substances that our body naturally produces, its regeneration slows down as we age. Some experts call hyaluronic acid the ‘fountain of youth’ as it’s a potent anti-aging substance that keeps the skin plump and youthful. It also minimizes fine lines. Cosmetic doctors use it as a main ingredient in fillers to treat their patient’s wrinkles; others use it to achieve fuller, more luscious lips. I’ve been a fan of HA since I find it helpful for my dry combination skin.   Tea tree is known for its antimicrobial properties hence, it’s very popular among individuals with oily, acne-prone skin types. But, it’s not just good for those who suffer from acne. It does wonders to people who suffer from redness and irritation, just like me. I like using products with this ingredient to help with the redness on my cheeks area, and to treat my occasional zit that usually sprouts during that time of the month. Tea tree has anti-inflammatory properties that help in treating skin inflammation, redness, irritation that I usually get as I have sensitive skin.   This Shiseido creamy cleanser is perfect as it doesn’t strip away my skin’s natural oils because it has HA in it. I like following it with this really affordable toner from the clean beauty brand, Human Nature. Together, they do wonders in keeping the moisture locked in my dry combination face, and treating the redness in my cheeks too. Definitely recommend this combo!

New & Improved Skin Care Routine *Bliss Line*
New & Improved Skin Care Routine *Bliss Line*
I’m just starting to research my products and I was extremely unsatisfied with what I had found in my current products. I’ve heard really good things about this line. I was really attracted to the lack of fragrance and super stripping chemicals. To start off let me tell you about my skin. I have struggled with dry skin for most of my life and my t-zone and chin are not only my dryers areas but they are also where I get the most acne. Correct me if I’m wrong but it’s just the overproduction of oil since I’m so dry and as the weather gets colder/dryer it gets worse. I usually get a new pimple once every two-three days. Knowing this I was looking for cleansers and toners that would help me manage the breakouts and a serum and moisturizer that will help me keep my skin soft and hydrated. Here are the products I bought along with first impressions after my first use :) bliss - Clear Genius Clarifying Gel Cleanser - This cleanser feels really gentle on my skin but it also gets the job done. My skin felt refreshed and clean but not dry. I didn’t feel like I needed to get my moisturizer on quickly before my skin dried out which is usually a challenge. bliss - Clear Genius Clarifying Toner + Serum - Over all I really enjoyed this toner. I wasn’t expecting it to be a gel but it did feel very soothing on my skin. The directions recommend using a cotton pad to apply but did feel like I had to pump out a lot to cover my whole face. I also had a lot of product squirt out from under my cotton pad when I was using the pump so I’m not super thrilled with the design. bliss - Ex-Glow-Sion Moisturizer - This has been the best moisturizer I’ve tried and at an amazing price point as well. It goes on light but doesn’t leave my skin needing more. It’s been several hours now and my face still feel soft. Conclusions: Bliss says they can clear your skin in two weeks. I’m going to be updating you guys in a week to let you know what results I’m seeing. I’m also going to be purchasing the bliss - Clear Genius Clarifying Liquid Peel because exfoliation is a must for me. I’m really excited to see what happens!
