Good molecules Primer
Good molecules Primer
Just sharing my thoughts on @goodmolecules silicone free priming moisturizer. This priming moisturizer is thick, rich and creamy and blends easily into the skin. I reach out for this mostly on my makeup days and I really like how hydrated and prepped my skin feels and also my makeup stays put for a longer time than usual. This has a plant derived silicone alternative, macadamia seed oil, Shea butter. It makes my skin super hydrated, smooth and at the same time work so well as a primer before makeup. Have you tried this one? Which is your favorite @goodmolecules product?

@drunkelephant dropped their F-balm in January and I was lucky enough to test this one out a few weeks before the release. 🌟what is it? This is a blend of four types of electrolytes. Now electrolytes are basically minerals and are important to help maintain hydration level in skin, improve the barrier and protect your skin against environmental dehydration. The four blend are coconut water, sodium PCA, magnesium PCA, prickly pear extract. 🌟This also contains niacinamide and squalane. Niacinamide has wide range of benefits but mostly improve signs of aging, loss of firmness and also really helps acne prone skin. Squalane is great to balance the oil production and also give enough moisture to skin. It also has anti-inflammatory properties. Other amazing ingredients are ceramides, omega fatty acids which helps skin with hydration and also retain moisture barrier. This also has tiny beads to it which are the VITAMIN F beads which quickly goes away when comes in contact with the skin and delivers extra soothing and hydration. 🌟I have been using this for few weeks now and I have used in many different ways. The packaging suggests to use 4-5 pumps of this for overnight hydration mask. I have used 5 pumps of this but this was just too much for my skin so I always just use 2 pumps and it gives me amazing hydration and it's super soothing. I have also used this in the morning as a moisturizer and would do 1-2 pumps as well. At night, I would do 3 pumps may be and wouldn't add any other hydrating serums, oils,or moisturizers in my routine. This gives enough of it. I also don't apply this nightly or every morning. May couple times a week or when my skin is need of extra boost. This is such a versatile product but I think you really need to figure out how much would work for your skin. I really enjoy using this especially as its colder outside.

Happy Wednesday✨ @youthtothepeople is a brand I came across via Instagram and the ingredients really looked clean and simple. I first tried their adaptogen mist which is such a fine mist yet so refreshing and Hydrating and makes my skin look clean. I used that mist all throughout the summer last year and their kombucha toner and super berry glow oil was equally a hit for me. Loved that! Their adaptogen products which included a travel size mist, travel size moisture cream and a full size adaptogen moisture cream. I have enjoyed the mist in the past and was so happy to get a travel size one because it's so convenient to travel with or just keep in my bag when I'm out. The Adaptogen deep moisture cream is a product I'm reaching out so much lately. Its so light weight and sinks right into my skin. My skin looks healthy and hydrated and the moisture it gives is enough for my combination skin. I think for dry skin people this might not be Hydrating enough on its own. It has squalane which boosts skin hydration and minimize the risk of clogged pores. It also has Ashwagandha which helps reduce signs of fatigue and Reishi which hydrates, detoxifies and prevents premature aging. - - Have you used any @youthtothepeople products? How is your week going so far?

#amikagiftedme their new reset cooling collection and I was super excited to use their scalp cleansing oil as I have never used something like this before. Scalp cleansing oil has pink clay and charcoal and is applied before shampoo. I just divided my hairs and applied it on my scalp all over and left for a while as I was running some errands at home. It wasn't bothering me at all and dint feel anything except for the tiny bit of cooling mint effect. This turns out frothy foam once it comes in contact with water. I massaged all over for a two mins to remove all the dirt and impurities. Followed by cooling reset shampoo and Conditioner which has jel like consistency helped to remove all the build up dirt and oil. The pink charcoal does really help to get rid of oil build up and also help in excess oil production. My scalp felt clean and fresh. I'm really trying to take a good care of my hair and mainly my oily scalp and greasy hair so I always apply tea tree oil diluted with any other oil (mostly coconut oil) and that has really helped my scalp and hair to look fresh for a longer time. #amikagiftedme @amika #amika #octolyfamily Which is your favorite hair product?

My favorite concealer from too faced!!
My favorite concealer from too faced!!
This is my HG concealer of all the times. I started using this around a little over a year and I'm super hooked and I don't even try any other ones. It gives such a full coverage look yet not cakey, super Hydrating under eyes. Once set with powder it doesn't crease which is a huge plus for me. Generally the ones I have used in the past have either creased or gave my drying under eye look. This gives such a healthy glow to skin as well. I like to use this as my foundation too or spot treat it.Too Faced - Born This Way Super Coverage Multi-Use Sculpting Concealer

Great but pricy SPF for acne prone skin
Great but pricy SPF for acne prone skin
Coola Sun Silk Drops SPF 30 This is a 70% organic sunscreen that is SPF 30 and is of a serum / concentrate consistency. Its vegan, cruelty free, and claims to protect against UVA/UVB/IR/HEV. I can’t comment on the digital light protection but it definitely works in the sun as I go running often and live in Florida. It’s very lightweight and leaves zero cast on your skin. This is great for me because I have golden tan complexion and most sunscreens give my skin a white cast which I hate. You can see my face after applying in the second picture (excuse the redness and peeling as I am recovering from a cold). I love that it absorbs quickly and can easily be mixed with moisturizer or foundation since it feels like a concentrate. The dropper makes it easy to apply the right amount for your face and is mess free. It is rather pricy but definitely worth it if most sunscreens break you out or leave you with a white cast. I have combination skin that is sensitive so I break out easily but my skin has loved this sunscreen. I give it 5 out of 5 stars ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ COOLA - Classic Full Spectrum 360 Sun Silk Drops SPF 30

{Skincare} Laneige Vanilla Lip Sleeping Mask
{Skincare} Laneige Vanilla Lip Sleeping Mask
{What is it?} A leave on lip treatment mask that soothes and moisturizes for smoother more supple lips. {Who is it for?} people with dry lips or fine lines {Texture/Consistency?} It is a thick oil balm. {My thoughts?} I hate to say this but I didn’t like this at all! I originally bought it in August and I tried it out for a week and my lips have never been so dry and crusty! My lips were cracking and bleeding and it took me almost 3 weeks to get my lips to return to normal! Side note; my lips are never dry because I NEVER go without lip balm or oil, so I was in shock! I use the berry one on clients in my makeup kit, and I’ve never had any problems! It smelled so good and it felt nice on my lips just dried my lips out. I stopped use and just tried it again for the first time in 4 months and the same thing happened! I must be allergic to something! But I defiantly will not repurchase or try again ! This was the first K beauty product I tried since it was so popular this year and I’m so sad it didn’t work for me! {Would I recommend?} No! It was $20 and I feel like the Bite beauty lip balm works way better, or even the biossance lip balm. I don’t believe it’s worth the price! LANEIGE - Lip Sleeping Mask

{Skincare} Tatcha Dewy sheet mask
{What is it?} A silky soft, skin-fitting sheet mask that delivers a healthy drink of super hydrating botanical oils, and extracts for a dewy glow in just one use. {Who is it for?} Normal, Combo, Dry & sensitive skin! {Texture/Consistency?} The Sheet mask itself feels very soft and smooth, not rough or spiky or anything. The serum part of the mask , was very creamy and milky and I would say medium consistency? Lol it wasn’t too thick or too wet and runny! {My thought?} I got this for my birthday in March and never used it until today and I really liked it!! I have another one, and I already can’t wait to use the other one! My skin felt very hydrated and soothed after I used this mask and looked so radiant. My skin has been super dry & sensitive and I’m glad this mask didn’t irritate my skin. The fragrance as very light and It wasn’t messy at all. The mask fit my face very well and was very relaxing to wear! {Would I recommend?} Yes! I really like this mask, it’s $12 for one sheet mask so I think that’s a bit pricey but I would repurchase because I love personal care and this made my skin look bomb! It’s perfect for a girls night or a spa night! Or just because you want to! It’s defiantly worth it. TATCHA - Luminous Dewy Skin Sheet Mask

{Skincare} Murad Clarifying mask
{What is it?} A natural clay mask that effectively absorbs impurities & oil buildup while also soothing the skin with allantoin, zinc & licorice for a clear & even complexion. {who is it for?} Oily, combo, normal, & acne prone skin. {Texture/Consistency?} It is a very thick, wet clay formula. That dried completely and cracks/becomes very dry {My thoughts?} I used to manage a salon so one of the esthetician’s recommended it to me for my hormonal breakouts, and I use it once a week or once a month depending on my breakouts that month, and it works great. It really helps clear my excess oil and pores during that time of the month! It also helps with my cystic - type acne. That’s the kind that’s too deep to get to and clear with serums! It has sulfur & zinc oxcide to clear active breakouts & soothe the skin. So my sensitive & dry skin can still use this and it doesn’t dry it out. I leave it on for about 10-15 mins or until dry before my night time routine only when I feel necessary. This is a special Large size for professional use only so it has lasted me over a year! {Would I recommend?} Yes if you have cystic acne or hormonal acne! The price for 2.65 oz is $40 so I would say it is worth it, as I see results! Murad - Acne Control Clarifying Mask

{Skincare} Sephora Collection Hydrate & Glow
{What is it?} A weightless moisturizer that hydrates & promotes a natural glow. {Who is it for ?} It is formulated for dryness, redness, dullness & uneven texture. For All skin types including sensitive. {Texture/Consistency?} It has a milky-serum like consistency and the texture is very smooth & creamy. {My thoughts?} So When I originally got this sample I thought it was a hyaluronic acid serum because it said hyaluronic acid on the front and all day hydrator & I didn’t do any other research. I used it at night in place of my Dermalogica hydrating booster & underneath a moisturizer I loved it! I woke up with glowy moisturized skin. It was a great boost of hydration. when I realized It was a moisturizer I tried it during the day and without an additional moisturizer and I still liked it. It soothes my dry skin & was still very hydrating. I use this a couple days a week when I don’t wear makeup and it gives me the perfect amount of glow! {Would I recommend?} Yes I really love how inexpensive this product is. It is $16 for 1.69 oz , or $9 for 1oz. It is also clean at sephora, which means it’s formulated without a huge list of bad ingredients. It is forsure worth the price.
