My daily skincare routine :) In the mornings, I also use LUMENE - Nordic-C Glow Boost Essence Serum 30ml but I ran out and need to buy more, I love the way this serum makes my skin look and feel. It makes me look more radiant, and makes my complexion less uneven. 1.) First, I use the PACIfICA - Cosmic Hemp Balancing Face Wash morning and night, and I’ve used this face wash for about 4 months now and I’ve bought it twice. Makes my skin more relaxed and look less stressed, really helps with unevenness. This is a more light-weight face wash, but it helps with stressed and bumpy skin. 2.) The Ordinary - Niacinamide 10% + Zinc 1% I use this after my face wash, and I love this serum so so much!! And so cheap for the quality!! $7. I got my mom to use The Ordinary now, too. This serum helps with oily skin, redness and blemishes and I can definitely tell the difference after use :) 3.) TATCHA - The Water Cream This moisturizer changed my skin completely!! I started out using this as a sample size from my Ipsy bag, and bought a few more sample sizes after that. I decided to just buy the bigger container instead of spending $20 every 2-3 weeks. The one that I have is a little bigger than average, and I think it was about $86, and the regular size is around $68. Although not the most affordable, this moisturizer makes my skin so so smooth and got rid of fine lines on my face, I would highly recommend this product to anybody. 4.) PACIfICA - Pore Warrior Oil Fighter Booster Serum (Only at night) I really like Pacifica, and I think it is an underrated brand. I can tell this serum has done good things for my skin, my pores look a little smaller, but it isn’t any life changing. I think this is $12, and you can get it at Target or Walmart. 5.) GLAMGLOW - BRIGHTEYES Illuminating Anti-Fatigue Eye Cream I also got this product from one of my Ipsy bags, and I’ve been using it instead of my Burt’s Bee’s eye cream, which is also really good. I can tell this cream has helped minimize my puffiness and dark spots underneath my eyes.
“This concentrated next-generation serum is built to help keep oil and pores under control while minimizing shine. Oily skin has met its new warrior. Our results driven combination of ingredients includes niacinamide – to aid in oil regulation, provide a skin barrier, and help improve the appearance of enlarged pores & uneven skin tone, and our berry complex- a triple action threat to oil & acne prone skin to help limit sebum oxidation, protect skin’s natural barrier, and help moderate irregularitites in tone.” performance | .8 star | wow am I regretting not taking this with me in my travel bag! I’ve been using this for a month and half, but since I didn’t take it with me my forehead has the worst breakout ever this week 😠 my skin wasn’t used to coming back to this humidity and got all gunked up, on the road to recovery texture | .6 star | it’s pretty thin, but dries up almost too quick sometimes like sinks into my hands before I can get it all on my face scent | full star | hint of berry packaging | .75 star | branding appeals more to the younger crowd, but elevated for the price. Lots of verbiage on the package, I like how they’re switching to a box vs the shrink wrapping ingredients | .5 star | no organic ingredients, but there’s *natural perfume in here 😭 value | full star | at only $16 this is a steal! Plus it’s a local brand so I like giving them money Total 4.65 out of 6 stars ✨

Is it a dupe? Battle of the Kale Cleansers!!
Sooooo everyone and their mother has a YTTP Superfood Cleanser review on here, so I’ll keep mine short. It’s expensive, it’s sustainable (they finally made the refill bottle permanent in their collection 😏) and it works. It leaves my skin feeling clean, not dry, and just all around healthy. Worth the money ($36 for an 8 oz bottle, which can last you awhile). 5/5⭐️ Now, the Pacifica Kale Detox cleanser has always been there for me, even before I had a skincare routine, or even knew that skincare could help my oily, acne prone, hormonal young adult skin. Back when $10 was a lot to spend on a face wash, back when I slept in my makeup-I know, I know! We all did stupid things when we were a kid!! Leave me alone! Anyway, this is a foaming gel cleanser, and it’s $10 for 5 oz. It claims that it is for oily and acne prone skin types, so it foams up quite a bit and a little goes a long way. I wouldn’t recommend this cleanser to anyone with even slightly dry skin, as it can be quite stripping and drying. I recently bought it about 8 months ago to see if it was a dupe for the YTTP Superfood Cleanser (which I loved but couldn’t justify spending a lot on skincare at the time) and I instantly noticed how drying it was. The fragrance is also slightly stronger, and smells more artificial as opposed to the natural “leafy greens” smell of the YTTP. However, with a soothing toner and hydrating mist, someone with skin like mine could make it work in my opinion. Sustainability: Nowhere near as sustainable as the YTTP, but the bottle is made from 50% recycled plastic. If that even counts. 4/5⭐️ For sentimental value. SUMMARY: Is it a similar product in theory? Yes. Is it a dupe? No. But, if you’re tight on cash, and really can’t dish out $36 on a cleanser, AND you have oily skin AND you have other hydrating products to put moisture back in to your skin after cleansing, this product could work for you. If you have the money for the YTTP cleanser, I would recommend that one because it isn’t stripping at all and they’re spot on with sustainability and ingredients. It is well worth the money, since according to dermatologists, cleansing is the most damaging part of our skincare routines.

This is my favorite mask. I put a thick amount on. I wake up and my skin is nourished. It is especially good for cold months when you can’t moisturize well. I like how my skin feels firm after I use it. It smells good, which I also like. I usually put some serum or something underneath, but it isn’t necessary to receive the good effects of this product. It’s Soo funny that this was an impulse buy years ago at target and now it’s my favorite!

review my boyfriends routine! by me :)
This is my boyfriends routine that I made! Its been pretty hard to get a good routine that he actually uses. But lately hes been wanting to take care of his skin!! Not pictured- PACIfICA - Acne Defense Face Wash bliss - Clear Genius Clarifying Toner + Serum I actually use this toner for myself haha. And it works amazing!!! It contains great ingredients such as; salicylic acid, witch hazel water, niacinamide, zinc, and cica. Those are all amazing ingredients that fight against acne and angry skin. artnaturals - Hyaluronic Acid Serum This is actually a “hand me down” that I really didnt like the consistency of, but he doesnt mind. As soon as he started using this, I INSTANTLY saw a difference in his face. DIFFERIN - DIFFERIN Acne Treatment Gel The iconic acne fighter. I also use this too, and it saved my skin. He just started using this and is beginning the purging part, but he is doing an a amazing job and is using the HERO COSMETICS - Mighty Patch Original for Madewell for any pimples that pop up. Neutrogena - Neutrogena Combination Skin Moisture Lastly, this moisturizer. I like this moisturizer because its not too thick and not too gely like. Its also non-codomongenic which is great. I cant wait what his face will turn out to be! Im sure hes going to feel a lot better about his skin :) ill make sure to do a update and let me know what you think about the routine!!

Sea foam cleanser
I got this goodie today at Target for 5.00 dollars on sale . Love this brand ! I never have any issues with them. Smells like coconut . PACIfICA - Sea Foam Complete Face Wash I love the scent . Something about new cleansers gets me extremely excited because I love clean skin . I mean who doesn’t ?! Deeply cleanses and removes make up efficiently . Suitable for all skin types . The product doesn't seperate or change consistency over time, lasts forever because you only need to use a dime-sized amount. Ingredients We Love ￼￼￼Coconut water ￼￼￼Coconut oil ￼￼￼Sea algae ￼￼￼White tea Antioxidants help skin repair itself. By reducing inflammation, antioxidants allow skin to repair itself and correct visible damage. Antioxidants neutralize those free radicals to protect your skin from damage. ... But that's not all: Some antioxidants also brighten your skin, calm irritation, and even smooth fine lines—as long as you choose the right ones.
empty: gentle face wash for all seasons!
This face wash was basically drugstore price, lasted months, and left my skin feeling soft and clean, but not tight. It also happens to smell amazing (fragrance is the last ingredient on the list and isn’t irritating or sensitizing for my skin). My skin is oily/combo and gets drier in the winter. This face wash works really well for me the whole year, and I’ll definitely repurchase 🥰

review on drugstore sheer foundation
Ive always stuck to matte foundations since my skin gets pretty oily, plus, I live in Texas and its always super hot. Since we are in the hottest part of summer, ive decided to try out a sheer dewy foundation! And I LOVE IT!! Its just like a second skin , the coverage is pretty buildable, and a little goes a long way. It gives a beautiful silky like glow and preforms perfect in summer weather. A little downside is that it takes a while to fully set on the face, it can still feel sort of wet after application, I also found that you cant really bake or powder set it, when i tried setting it with my PACIfICA - Cherry Velvet Matte Setting Powder it formed a weird texture and looked very dry on the skin, so I just set it with spray and it still lasted the whole day! Overall. i really like this product, it gives a really natural look and stays on all day even during texas heat
The urbandecay Stay Naked and pacifica Alight foundations are the newest additions to the rotation and I am loving them both! The UD lasts all day looking great, without making my skin look dry, and the Pacifica one makes my skin look flawless 🙌🏻
Top 3 Makeup Remover $10 & Less 💗
Having a full face of makeup is great .. until it’s time to take it off ✨ I like a full face, that includes the whole 9 yard (eye makeup, full foundation/concealer coverage, and powders). I only double cleanse for this situation. I know a lot of people who say that wearing certain sunscreens should be double cleansed but that’s a preference I think everyone should decide for themselves (L👉🏽R) GARNIER - SkinActive Micellar Cleansing Water with Rose Water this is a great step to have in your arsenal! I love to use this to work on my eye makeup. It avoids unnecessary oil contact with your eyes which saves a lot of irritation! ￼￼￼￼no oils, alcohol, or fragrances ￼￼￼￼gets the job done without excessive rubbing Just apply to your cotton pad and rub gently to removal stubborn mascara, eyeliner, shadows, and any other eye stubbornness! $8.99 THE FACE SHOP - Rice Water Bright, Light Cleansing Oil This is my second step. I love this oil! ￼￼￼￼ Rice Water : enriched with vitamin A,B, E and minerals, its gentle enough to clean without leaving a harsh greasy feel! ￼￼￼￼Moringa Oil: antioxidant rich oil that helps lift dirt and makeup ￼￼￼￼Soapwart: gentle cleanser for sensitive skin ￼￼￼￼NO sulfates, SLS, or SLES I take two pumps of this in my hand and rub it across my face (try to avoid your eye area). Then rinse my skin with water to work the oil and makeup off. If you wear a lot of makeup (like I) you might have to repeat this step! PACIfICA - Rose Kombucha Flower Powered Face Wash My last cleansing step before I tone! It’s very gentle and smells great! ￼￼￼￼Rose Tea: rich in antioxidants, and antibacterial properties, it also helps to hydrate your skin! ￼￼￼￼Fermented Tea: rich in anti-aging and detoxifying properties. ￼￼￼￼NO parabens, phthalates, SLS, or mineral oil! This cleaner leaves my face feeling very soft and great. With combo skin, it’s gentle and doesn’t leave my skin totally stripped but still cleanses the left over oil! $10! Always follow these steps with toner! You’d be surprise what’s left over on your face !
🍵 green tea works!! for dark circles
I've had struggles with insomnia since I was a kid. At one point, I accepted my dark circles. But sometimes, making yourself look healthier can make you FEEL better. And that's important. When you lose sleep, your skin gets paler, & your blood vessels dilate. So thin, pale skin + bigger vessels = dark under eyes. The 1st solution is to sleep more. But the 2nd works really well for our off days! 🍃 GREEN TEA TREATMENT 🍃 I was skeptical of this at first. But it WORKS. In the first pic (above), I had gotten 4 hours of sleep. In the after (below) pic, I had done a green tea bag soak. Tutorial : ￼Soak two tea bags in water in your refrigerator. I left mine overnight. Try to use pure green tea. I used the #Twinings - Green Tea[products]#[FiveStars] ￼Take the bags, squeeze excess water, and apply them over your eyes. Leave a little water so it can get snug on your eyes (like a blanket). I put the thick end on my under eye, and fit the top part on my upper lid. Both are important to reduce dark circles. ￼Remove after 15 minutes. And that's it! Your eyes will look less red, and you'll feel more awake. I know the process is long- so it's not ideal for when you're in a rush. But it's also very anti-anxiety. My facial muscles felt relaxes, and the redness was 75% gone. My skin felt tighter (in a good way) for a few hours. 🍂TESTING ANOTHER METHOD🍂 I wanted to try a quick under eye cream for days where I only have a minute. So I tried the PACIfICA - Rose Jelly Beauty Sleep Undereye Gel In the 4th pic, the top is me before, and the bottom is me after. What I did: ￼Leave it in the fridge over night ￼In the morning, rub the product in (using the glass beads to massage the eyes). Sadly, the difference was minimal. It made me feel relaxed, but I wonder if I should have used more of the gel / kept the cooling beads on longer. 🧪 INGREDIENTS BREAKDOWN 🧪 I think green tea worked better because I kept it on (and cold) so long. It has a high concentrate of caffeine and ECGC. Both constrict blood vessels, and reduce inflammation. The Pacifica product has caffeine, too. But its first ingredient is witch hazel (reduces swelling). It also has caffeine, rose extract (reduces lines), and blue tansy (soothes irritation). All these are helpful to target dark circles, but maybe they're not potent enough. And the tube is small, so I don't want to use too much of it. On the plus side, it kept my under eyes moisturized all day. So I'll still take it for on the go. But if you REALLY need to look awake for a Zoom meeting or appointment? Green tea is the way to go!
Pacifica’s Rose Jelly Beauty Sleep Undereye Gel
PACIfICA - Rose Jelly Beauty Sleep Undereye Gel I liked this product. It comes in really cute packaging like all of Pacifica’s stuff. The tube itself is a very good design and is travel friendly because you can turn it on and on off to prevent the gel from getting squeezed out in your bag or something like that. To use it you squeeze a little out on to the applicator and roll it around under your eye. The little rollers are nice and cool and this product would probably feel great if you put it in the refrigerator before using. It does tingle a little bit sometimes but for me that never lasted more than a few minutes....I mostly used it as a night time eye serum. I think it helped prevent eye puffiness in the morning. I also used it after swimming on my raccoon eyes from my goggles. I think that the goggle marks cleared up faster with this eye gel than without.
Pacifica Dreamy Youth Cream—anti-aging or not??
The “Dreamy Youth” Cream by Pacifica is a cream targeted to help with anti-aging and give a youthful glow. It is said to “minimize the appearance of fine lines” and “promote a lifting effect,” as well as, “improve radiance.” As far as the texture of this cream goes, it is fairly light, and I think it does a fine job at moisturizing. I noticed a nice glow when I wake up in the morning, and it could have to do with this cream. I have used this for a couple months on-and-off, and I would say I haven’t noticed anything besides a little moisturizing effect. I enjoy the rose scent and the light feeling of the cream. I also like that it has antioxidants and is vegan and cruelty free. I wouldn’t say that this helps with anti-aging on the outside, but the antioxidants help promote healthy skin, which I think is important in the aging process. I would recommend this to anyone wanting a light day/night cream, and at less than $16 for the full size (I have the travel size), you definitely have nothing to lose with trying it!
Pacifica Dreamy Youth Day and Night Face Cream
This product aims for your skin to be as youthful and glowy as possible! It is good for all skin types, especially dry!! It has a fleuracell complex, this means it is concentrated with floral stem cells that helps with anti-aging! This is supported by antioxidants and advanced extracts that join forces to deeply moisturize and improve the skins youthful glow!! The texture of this is very creamy and thin! It feels great on the skin and melts right into it!! Since I’ve been using this I have seen more of a youth glow in my skin and haven’t had any problems with it! I will continue to use this and also will continue to see more anti-aging results!! I will definitely be repurchasing this and recommend to everyone looking for it’s properties! It costs $16 and is 1.7 oz for the full size!! This is very affordable for a good working anti-aging moisturizer! I hope this helps with finding a good moisturizer that works for you!!🥰PACIfICA - Dreamy Youth Day & Night Face Cream
