What are Essences and do we really need them?
It’s safe to say that over the past few years skincare has developed into a vast variety of serums, toners, moisturizers and thanks to K Beauty Essences and Double Cleansing. It can get confusing at times wether or not you should use a toner or an essence? Should you use both? Is an Essence the same as a serum? Or really what’s the difference between all of these products? Before K beauty was very popular, I purchased an Essence from Murad Murad - Hydro-Dynamic Quenching Essence and since the first day I tried it I loved Essences. So I wanted to share some of my favorite Essences with you and also let you know a lot of essences are not extremely pricey and are made for all skin types. The main goal of an essence is to hydrate the skin and to help the other products in your skincare routine better absorb into your skin, An essence includes a lot of great benefits for your skin and acts as a primer for your skincare routine. It makes the active ingredients in your existing skincare steps that much more effective. It provides a ton of moisture deep within the skin, restoring the natural moisture balance. Toners are meant to help balance the skin pH and prep the skin for more efficacious ingredient delivery in the products to follow. While Serums generally have a higher molecular weight than essences and carry more emollient and humectant properties. Because they're specifically made for the delivery of active ingredients in a lightweight formula to be absorbed well by the skin, My favorite Essences Murad - Hydro-Dynamic Quenching Essence The first Essence I ever tried, it’s made with Mexican Blue Agave Lead Extract which restores the skins ability to attract and retain water, and also Glycolic acid for light exfoliation. The texture is super silky, weightless and hydrates my skin in seconds optimizing the skins capacity to absorb my next skincare product. #Murad - White Brilliance Luminous Essence[products]#[FiveStars] This Essence is no longer sold in the US but available on Murad’s site in Canada, and other countries like Malaysia. It has Porcelain flower extract to illuminate skin while adding moisture and is perfect for sensitive skin. It calms my skin giving me an even skin tone with a radiant glow. exuviance - Anti-Pollution Protection Essence This is a highly concentrated essence that is formulated with proven ingredients to balance and strengthen the skins moisture barrier. It’s Anti aging and neutralizes the effects of environmental stressors and pollution. It’s a very light hydrating essence that is also formulated to prepare skin for the benefits of subsequent skincare products. VICHY - Aqualia Thermal Serum This product is a serum but I use it and it performs like an Essence. It’s very hydrating and has a very light almost watery texture. It has salicylic acid to keep pores clean and Hyaluronic acid to stay hydrated.

My PM Night Routine 👌
I do tend to switch up serums and moisturizers depending on if I exfoliated that day, or did a chemical peel, or if my skin is feeling dry. But this is the main routine I stick to. Murad is my fav brand. ELEMIS - Pro-Collagen Cleansing Balm - This is a great cleansing balm I received in my BeautyFix Box. It Deep cleans and dissolves makeup, including my waterproof mascara and has anti aging benefits. It contains Chamomile, Rosehip oil, Lactic acid and other Essential oils. EMMA HARDIE - Moringa Light Cleansing Gel - Another product I got from a BeautyFix box, this is more of a gel like oil cleanser instead of a balm which I like. It also removes my mascara and is packed with skin loving essential oils dr. brandt - Clean Biotic - This is a PH balanced yogurt cleanser with chlorophyll. Chlorophyll stimulates anti aging enzymes and encourages nourished youthful skin, it also repairs sun damage and fights free radicals. It’s a creamy texture that doesn’t foam up which I love. Has antioxidants like Green tea, white tea and Grapeseed extract. It’s very soothing. exuviance - Anti-Pollution Protection Essence - This Essence targets the skins microbiome to help re-balance and strengthen the skins moisture barrier. Also has ingredients and antioxidants to neutralize the visible aging effects due to stressors like pollution. It’s very light almost like water, I take about 5 drops and press it into my skin. Murad - Essential-C Toner - Refreshing mist with antioxidants that brightens the skin and replenishes moisture. I do use this before my Essence. Has a very citrusy smell and comes in a spray bottle which I like opposed to pouring out the toner. Murad - Retinol Youth Renewal Serum - Fast acting retinol serum that minimizes fine lines, firms, evens skin tone, and boots radiance. It has a technology that releases a fast acting retinol, a time released retinol and a retinol booster. It also has hydrating ingredients like Hyaluronic acid to minimize dryness. Murad - Renewing Eye Cream - A nourishing eye cream that firms and brightens and targets signs of aging. It has Peptides and Retinol to increase elasticity and a brightening complex for dark circles. Love how thick this eye cream is, I’ve seen a difference in my dark circles, and fine lines. Murad - Hydro-Dynamic Ultimate Moisture - Cream with advanced hyaluronic acid technology provides 24 hour hydration, restores suppleness and reduces fine lines. Coconut extract helps provide enhanced moisture retention. I love thick extra hydrating night creams and nothing compares to this. Murad - Night Fix Enzyme Treatment - Accelerates nighttime skin repair,and visibly minimizes fine lines. Skin loses water 3x faster at night, works with the body’s circadian rhythm. Def a great extra step.

Testing my minis
So I got a lot of mini products from Ulta for buying “x” amount of stuff you get free samples. I tried them out and here’s what I think... Jack Black - Intense Therapy Lip Balm SPF 25 this lip balm is on of my favorites, when I have extra dry or chapped lips this stuff helps moisturize and repair my lips. OUAI - OUAI Body Cleanser I really like this body cleanser because when I use it I feel clean and refreshed, my skin looks cleaner and brighter. boscia - Cactus Water Moisturizer I like this moisturizer because it smells good, it’s thin, and has a nice consistency to it. It makes my face a little shiny almost sticky looking but other than that this is a pretty good moisturizer. CeraVe - Daily Moisturizing Lotion For Normal To Dry Skin I love cerave, I love a good majority of their products. I like this moisturizer but it is a little on the thicker side and I usually like thinner moisturizers. It does it’s job and doesn’t make me breakout. exuviance - Overnight Transformation Complex I love the smell of this product, it smells fresh. It has a nice consistency. The issue I have is that it made me breakout the first time I used it. DERMAdoctor - Lucky Bamboo Probiotic Fermented Wasabi Pressed Serum this product has an odd thick consistency and it’s milky white in color. To me it doesn’t have much of a smell at all. It’s weird to me because I’ve only seen serums that are clear or transparent but this product is very opaque. It made my face feel really odd and sticky. Murad - Hydro-Dynamic Ultimate Moisture I didn’t use this product on my face only because the smell was so awful and the color was very displeasing. It smells stale and kind of waxy. The color is like a bees wax yellow. It feels oily when I put some in my fingers.

WOW! It is fragrance free, plumps my skin and makes the whole process feel so luxurious! @exuviance Super Retinol Concentrate - this is the first retinol type product that I’ve introduced into my routine and it was very easy to incorporate! My skin didn’t get irritated at all and I’m using it now every other night. I definitely see results and think this would be a perfect retinol for anyone starting out! @essie Expressie Polish “Don’t Hate, Curate” - such a unique shade, I loved yellows like this! @peaceoutskincare Acne Dots - these work overnight, I’ve seen drastic results when using these, glad I found them. @burberry Fresh Glow Luminous Fluid Base - I’ve had this for a while but didn’t start using it til now, I mix a few pumps into my foundation and love the glowy finish it gives. @milkmakeup Matte Bronzer - I’ve found the perfect cream bronzer, I know everyone has talked about this one and for good reason! It blends like a dream and is the perfect cool tone for me, I’m gonna be using this non stop this coming summer. @youthtothepeople Dream Mask - already on my wishlist to purchase during the next sale, it only took me a few uses to know that it’s awesome! Super hydrating but not greasy and has a slight creamsicle scent. @sephora Diffuser Brush “64” - this is the perfect brush for the matte bronzer, blends it out perfectly!

EMPTIES. I don't post my empties often but am thinking about starting to. I really love all three of these products (the coconut cleansing balm is probably my 4th jar) . . I got the nooni Moisture mist at TJmaxx & I think it's a discontinued product as I can't find it anywhere. But I loved that it was a toner and essence in one. Plus the mist is perfection. . . This exuviance Super Retinol Concentrate was gifted to me and I loved it so much. Either that or i'm interested in the drunk elephant A-passioni. Thoughts?? . This yes to Coconuts Cleansing balm is my favorite cleansing balm! It removes waterproof mascara and doesn't sting my eyes. 👏🏻 I’ll continue to repurchase it!!

How to Get Rid of Blackheads: Best Ingredients to Look For!
Blackheads are a skincare occurrence that most of us struggle with, whether you have oily skin or not. Before knowing what ingredients to use to get rid of them, what you need to do is understand what blackheads are in the first place.  What is a blackhead? Blackheads are one of the most common forms of acne. Our pores sometimes get congested with dead skin and sebum. When this gunk comes in contact with the air, it gets oxidised, and turns black, and hence is called a blackhead. While some people are genetically prone to blackheads, and those with oily skin tend to have more, they can also occur due to hormonal changes (like puberty or starting a new hormonal birth control) or from wearing heavy makeup.  Dermatologist-approved Ingredients for blackheads “The good news is that there is a cornucopia of over-the-counter products that contain effective ingredients to exfoliate, soften, and even remove blackheads,” says Allison Britt Kimmins, MD, MPH. Here I did some research about dermatologists to get the lowdown on which ingredients fight them best and some products recommendations. Salicylic acid Salicylic acid, found in many acne products, is a longtime skincare staple for its ability to unclog pores by cleaning out enlarged follicles that fill with sebum and become blackheads.  Because the ingredient can irritate the skin if used too much, it’s best to use it as a targeted treatment instead of all over your face or body. Many people may be sensitive to salicylic acid and be able to use it more than once every few days. If you continue to react to it, discontinue use. Try:PAULA'S CHOICE - Skin Perfecting 2% BHA Gel Exfoliant This Paula’s Choice product has long been a cult-favourite salicylic acid exfoliator. The lightweight formulation absorbs quickly and is formulated at the optimal pH of 3.2 to 3.8 for maximum efficacy. Green tea extract is also present to provide calming and antioxidative properties. Glycolic acid An alpha hydroxy acid derived from sugarcane, gives blackhead-prone skin a fresh start. It goes to work by exfoliating the top skin layer and cleaning out clogged follicles. The benefits of this gentle acid are twofold. By dissolving the upper skin layer, it also triggers the skin cells to repair themselves—therefore creating more collagen. Try:exuviance - Pore Clarifying Cleanser It is soap-free formula and contains AHAs, PHAs, BHAs, suitable for oily and acne-prone skin. Azelaic acid "Azelaic acid is a dicarboxylic acid that helps exfoliate the skin and is synthesized by yeast naturally,"says NYC-based dermatologists Gervaise Gerstner,  MD. It is a multifunctional skincare ingredient that targets blackheads and can also lighten the brown discolouration caused by acne. Try: DERMAdoctor - Photodynamic Therapy Age Spot Eraser & Skin Brightener A revolutionary brightening face treatment Developed with awardwinning, antiaging red light technology Formulated with hydroquinonefree botanical boosters Helps even skin discoloration. Benzoyl Peroxide Like salicylic acid, benzoyl peroxide works as a keratolytic agent, which means it’s able to break down and loosen the dead skin cells on the surface of the skin and down in the pores. In addition to cleaning out pores, benzoyl peroxide fights the bacteria that lead to breakouts. Try:Clean&Clear - Persa-Gel 10 Acne Medication Spot Treatment It can be drying, however, and harsh on sensitive complexions. Spot treat on a small patch of skin first to make sure you don’t react. Witch Hazel Witch hazel, which naturally soothes blackhead-prone skin with anti-inflammatory properties, appears most commonly in toners. If your regimen begins with toner, pass on the drying alcohol–based formulas and opt for water-based products.  Try:THAYERS - Witch Hazel Blemish Clearing Toner A fan-favorite and easily one of the most well-known witch hazel-containing products, this toner is recommended by Zeichner and also contains rose petal water and aloe to help hydrate and calm the skin. "It's important to eliminate oil, scale, salt, and possibly makeup after a workout to prevent these materials from congealing in pores," explains Craig Kraffert, MD, president of Amarte Skin Care. Noted that cleansing with a gentle cleanser (or a mild exfoliant) is best. Although some people may see a dermatologist for their blackheads, and there are also in-office treatments that can help, it’s really worth trying some skincare products with ingredients that can help us get rid of blackheads!

Alcohols in skincare; the good, bad, and ugly
Alcohols in skincare; the good, bad, and ugly
Something I’ve encountered a lot lately at work is misinformation about alcohol in skincare. It’s definitely a myth that all alcohol is bad alcohol. I want to shed a little bit of light on bad alcohols and good alcohols in skincare. The Bad: The most common bad alcohol you’ll encounter in skincare is denatured alcohol. If you see this in the first few ingredients... run! The CLINIQUE - Clarifying Lotion 3 is an example of this as it is the second ingredient! *in most cases the higher up something is on the ingredient list the more concentrated it is* You may think you’re seeing instant results with this (especially if you have oily skin) but what it’s really doing is stripping your skin and preventing it from preforming it’s natural functions. This will cause dryness, possible irritation, and will wreck your moisture barrier over time. Another example of this ingredient is the exuviance - Resurfacing Glycolic Wash. More examples of bad alcohols in skincare are isopropyl alcohol, methanol, SD alcohol, and ethanol. If you see these just put the product down, it’s not worth it. The Good: Now at this point you might be thinking that all alcohol is bad in skincare but that’s totally not the case!! There are actually really good alcohols that can really benefit your skin. These are considered fatty alcohols. They help draw in and hold moisture. The most common ones you’ll see are cetyl alcohol, stearyl alcohol, glycol, and cetearyl alcohol. A HUGE favorite of mine lately has been the FIRST AID BEAUTY - Ultra Repair Instant Oatmeal Mask which includes cetyl alcohol, glycol, and cetearyl alcohol. My skin has been really going through it lately with wearing my mask and I noticed how it felt very dry and irritated. I immediately went out and purchased this mask to help soothe (it also contains colloidal oatmeal) and hydrate my skin. It has a thicker, cream consistency with those oatmeal chunks all throughout. When I say this nourished, soothed, and hydrated my skin better than anything I’ve ever used I really mean it. This mask has been a blessing. The fatty alcohols help draw in that moisture and lock it in making it perfect for those with all skin types (but especially dry and combo). It also doesn’t contain any dyes or fragrances making it perfect for sensitive skin. So long story short not all alcohols are bad alcohols. You just have to be careful and read the label to see what’s really in a product. If anyone has any questions please let me know 🖤

a Barbara Sturm Hyaluronic Aci
a Barbara Sturm Hyaluronic Acid Serum dupe! ⁣ ⁣ According to Skin Skool Beauty, Exuviance Anti-Pollution Essence has a 92% similarity score in comparison to the Sturm serum, touting the two miracle ingredients that are incorporated in the Sturm: Hyaluronic Acid, and 10% Probiotic Lysate. In addition to these, the Exuviance essence includes 8% of a polyhydroxy acid; gluconolactone, a gentle exfoliant and antioxidant, that strengthens the skins moisture barrier. ⁣ ⁣ I’ve been incorporating this essence into my morning routine for a month, and opt to apply it onto slightly damp skin to draw moisture in. Not only has my skin felt increasingly hydrated and rebalanced, it’s also looked brighter and calmer than usual. Placing products over top of the essence layers likes a dream, and can also penetrate better! The only slight quip I have about the essence is added fragrance, listed last in the INCI. However, this has caused no issues for my skin. ⁣ ⁣ With the Barbara Sturm weighing in at £230 for 30ml, and the Exuviance Essence at £53 for 100ml, this is a definite gem that I’m so glad I’ve found ✨⁣
