Strawberry-C Brightening Serum Worth the $$ 🍓?
According to Volition, this product helps “boost collagen production and controls excess oil to reveal radiant, glowing skin”. 🍓 also contain antioxidants, and mixed with Kakadu plum — which is also high in vitamin C— this serum also helps reduce redness and unclog pores. This also contains hyaluronic acid :) VOLITION - Strawberry-C Brightening Serum This serum is suitable for all skin types. My skin type is normal. After using it I do notice my skin looking healthy and hydrated but I have yet to see much in terms of brightening. You can use this serum both morning and night but I usually use it in the AM. I find it layers well with other serums because it so lightweight. All you need is a pea-size amount. The one downside of this serum is that it does not smell like strawberries. It contains cucumber water and smells light cucumber to me. It’s a little misleading but the smell isn’t over powering at all. This product retails for $60 CAD which is quite expensive for a serum in my opinion. I’m giving it 4 stars because I like that it’s hydrating but haven’t seen many results in terms of brightness. However, this may be a good product for those with sensitive skin and hyperpigmentation of scarring. I don’t think I love this product enough to repurchase given the price and having used more effective brightening vitamin C serums, but that doesn’t mean I’m not enjoying it. I do like the hydration aspect.
Ready for some weekend Radiance? Featuring Volition’s strawberry-C brightening serum🍓 This serum is lightweight and absorbs quickly into the skin without leaving any sticky residue. Vit-c serums tend to have a funky smell to them, but Volition surprised me since it is subtly scented. Highlighted Ingredients: - Strawberry Fruit and Seed Extract: Help brighten dull skin, unclog pores, and remove excess oil. - Kakadu Plum: Helps reinforce luminosity and reduce appearance of redness. - Hyaluronic Acid: Promotes skin elasticity for plump, hydrated skin. (As described from their official website) Packed with antioxidants, I noticed plumped and radiant skin the next day and my skin feels smoother too! After using for about 3 weeks during the day and night, it’s made my skin gain back the clarity and rejuvenated. However, my hyperpigmentation didn’t seem to have much change, maybe it’s too early to tell? I would probably give another bottle a go Cus i really enjoy the smooth feeling and radiance it has given my skin and added a boost of hydration too. I was given a sample a long time ago at Sephora and finally dug it up and gave it a try and I’m glad I did! Ive tried others vitamin C serums in the past but this one gives a really soft and smooth texture rather than the tacky smelly ones I’ve used before. As an avid fan of using Vitamin C this one is definitely one of my favs thus far! Not to mention their $60 price point is very competitive and the quality of the product is pretty good to me!

Must-haves for acne -prone and sensitive skin
Volition is a brand that caught my attention recently. It doesn't contain allergenic ingredients and is friendly to those with acne-prone and sensitive skin.👍 First, their serum. VOLITION - Strawberry-C Brightening Serum It absorbs quickly and is not greasy at all. It is very refreshing and is suitable for oily skin types. But after I bought it home and used it for a while, I found some faults: It's a bit sticky when I apply too much and it started balling up when I used other products after using it.😢 Its vitamin C concentration is not high so I'll use other vitamin C powders with it. Their celery green cream VOLITION - Celery Green Cream with Hyaluronic Acid + Peptideshas a good reputation online. I've been using it for a while now and I highly recommend it. I find the texture just as refreshing as the name and it's not greasy at all. It's also super moisturizing, which is perfect for my skin. I will definitely repurchase it! 😍
Celery Green Cream 🥬🥒
My last post was featuring avocado and now I’m on to my veggies featuring VOLITION - Celery Green Cream with Hyaluronic Acid + Peptides ! This moisturizer “purifies and helps improve hydration retention for poreless, healthier-looking skin,” as mentioned on Sephora’s website. I started using this mask back in November because I wanted to prepare for the winter cold seasons approaching the east coast. I won this from a super generous giveaway and since then it’s been one of my favorite creams! I have oily combo skin but during the winter months I experience dry patches and need extreme hydration as soon as possible. This cream has a thicker consistency and a lovely scent that reminds of a green juices! Hence, my emojis for this product! There is not an exact celery emoji but this green leaf veggie was the closet thing to it. And in addition to celery, this product has cucumber extract as well 🥒. This moisturizer is a green juice for your face and guess what, my face is here to drink it up! This product retails for $55.00 and brings 1.7oz. In my opinion it is pretty expensive item but it’s an effective one. My two cents are always if you can afford it and if it’s in your budget, then go ahead and spoil yourself. If not, there are other face products that hydrate just as well! I never want to be a person that pushes expensive problems to peers, so y’all can decide what is worth to splurge on! If y’all have used it, let me know your thoughts! 💚💚💚

Snow mushroom water serum
The main active Ingredient of Tremella Mushroom or silver ear mushroom, happens to be water-binding polysaccharides. This is my fourth bottle of serum @volitionbeauty serum. The first time i used it, I was able to notice a significant amelioration in my skin’s moisture levels after about 5 weeks of continuous use. Apparently, the water-binding capacities of the snow mushroom contained in this serum are greater than those of Hyarulonic acid. Not only that, but it also forms some sort of an occlusive barrier to reduce trans-epidermal water loss. This serum is marketed as your “does it all” product . It contains sources of vitamin A, C and B5, your typical antioxidants and soothing agents. You’ll also find marine sea water, meant to detoxify the skin. My personal experience with this serum was surprisingly enchanting. I didn’t know what to expect from it, but I certainly didn’t think it would perform so visibly well. The one thing bothering me is the 78$ price tag for a hydrating serum. If you’re okay with that, jump right in ✨ VOLITION - Snow Mushroom Water Serum
BOMB SERUMS TO ADD TO ANY SKINCARE ROUTINE💕
let’s talk about my favourite skincare product- SERUMS!🥳 Serums are some of the best skincare products out there because they allow for a more concentrated ingredient to overall help your skin for what it needs😊 For me, I suffer with acne, but hyperpigmention and sometimes need extra hydration, even if I am super oily so these are three awesome serums that really help my skin overall!😘 OLE HENRIKSEN - Banana Bright Vitamin C Serum a bomb vitamin C serum that really helps brighten my overall complexion while helping fade any dark spots! This product also has PHAs which is a gentler form of an AHA to help with surface level issues like acne and texture to really smooth your skin. 😛 I truly love this serum, it works wonderfully and you can see your skin glowing right after using it and it’s gentle for sensitive skins to use as well! But it still has a form of chemical exfoliation so I only use this every other day FARMACY - Honeymoon Glow Serum an amazing AHA resurfacing serum I use in my PM routine! This legit makes your skin glow immediately but also the next morning you look radiant af!🤩 it also helps with any texture and acne along with pigmentation and overall evening out your skin tone as well! VOLITION - Snow Mushroom Water Serum this is a newer product in my routine I added for more hydration when I damaged my skin barrier snd my gosh did this blow me away!😱 this is some CRAY hydrating stuff. I have tried HA serums before but this one it’s def the best hydrating serum out there! You can legit immediately feel the boost in your skin, the plumpness that you can see and feel snd overall smoothening of your skin before applying other products. 💦 this is pricey but wow is it worth it! If you are oily snd need some extra hydration without weighing down your skin, this is at least a must try! WAY better than HA lol even though this is an HA 💫 Adding a vit c, a chemical exfoliation and hydrating serum to my routine has truly change my skin for the better and I can’t say enough good about all of them! 😝 #cheriepartner

Let’s talk—Celery Green Cream
This oil-free moisturizer contains HA and celery seed extract to help improve the over-all complexion of the skin while plumping the skin to provide soothed and calm skin! I received this in a FFF box and usually I am very cautious of what moisturizers I use on my face because I am oily and acne prone! This lightweight moisturizer has been the ticket for me! I use a beauty spatula to spoon this from the container to keep the inside of this moisturizer as sterile as possible. Before and after each use of the spatula I clean it with an alcohol swab. I find this helps keep my oily skin at bay when I wear this with makeup. However, when I do not wear makeup, this moisturizer doesn’t help my oily skin. I think this is a great moisturizer for all skin types and this smells very clean. It has not caused me to breakout and I have been using this consistently for 2 months now! VOLITION - Celery Green Cream Beauty retails for $55 and lasts a long time. I’ve made a small dent in this and think it will last me into 2021! If you can afford this, go for it! Otherwise, there are other great moisturizers out there for a fraction of the cost while still providing great results.
Does FOOD belong in SKINCARE or SMOOTHIES?🍑🥬🍯
Fruits, vegetables, and other ingredients that we consume are commonly used in marketing for skincare products, claiming certain benefits. But do all natural foods belong in skincare? See for yourself 😉 🍯 Honey : anti-inflammatory, balances bacteria, speeds up healing of the skin. Often used in products for combatting acne. Very effective, but you should try not to smear raw honey on your face as it could clog your pores if not properly treated. Farmacy is famous for its line of products that effectively use honey! My favorite is FARMACY - Honeymoon Glow Serum which chemically exfoliates while also soothing and moisturizing to prevent irritation. 🥬 Celery : Ingesting celery juice is the latest trend in health and wellness, because it has such a high water content (over 95%) and contains antioxidants including vitamin C. However, adding celery to skincare is likely just a marketing trick, as it likely only adds some extra water to the product, and the antioxidant content likely needs to be boosted with other forms in order to get the best effect. The VOLITION - Celery Green Cream Beauty is hydrating enough for a day cream, but I don’t think including celery makes it all that revolutionary. 🍵 Matcha : Powerful antioxidant and antibiotic. The chlorophyll which makes matcha such a bright green actually helps to convert sunlight to energy and therefore protect our skin from photo-aging. The ECGC compound in matcha is also anti-bacterial and is very helpful for fighting and soothing acne. The Krave - Matcha Hemp Hydrating Cleanser is easily my favorite cleanser due to how gentle and effective it is! 🍑 Peach : Anti-inflammatory, moisturizing, promotes skin metabolism, anti-bacterial, and antioxidant. The leaves contain amino acids, flavanoids, and tannins which are all very beneficial to skin health. The PEACH & LILY - Glass Skin Refining Serum utilizes peach extract for this lovely serum that my skin absolutely drinks up! The results are amazing so I can’t help but believe that peaches are wonderful for our skin! 🍊 Orange : antioxidant, exfoliating, high vitamin C content. Could be irritating to sensitive skin types, especially oils from the peel. This goes for basically any citrus fruit, but it is still a very commonly used ingredient in skin care due to its antioxidant properties. In small doses it can be very beneficial, and it smells great, such as in the OLE HENRIKSEN - Truth Juice Daily Cleanser ! What do you think? Do foods belong in skincare? Whats your favorite food-ingredient? Let me know below!!👇🏼👇🏼

Best Sunscreens Under Makeup!
Just because the weather is changing doesn’t mean we can slack off when it comes SPF the health of our skin! I used to neglect wearing SPF because I felt like it ruined my makeup, but thankfully I have found some really great options that wear really nicely under my foundation and tinted moisturizers. I have pretty normal/combination skin so I have quite a few formulas that I enjoy depending on how my skin is behaving. During the warmer months, when my skin is more on the oily side, I typically each for a mattifying SPF. One of my faves is the #Rodan + Fields - Invisible Matte Defense Broad Spectrum SPF 30[products]#[FiveStars] It feels smooth and silky when applied, and it’s also clear which I love! It also helps keep my oils in check! Another summertime favorite is the BARE REPUBLIC - Face Mineral Sunscreen Lotion SPF 30 First of all, I love Bare Republic’s sunscreens because they are reef friendly and contain no chemical sunscreen actives. I also love that it dries down to a powder finish, and doesn’t leave my skin feeling greasy. I use this sunscreen basically year round because it works when my skin is either dry or oily. Another year round fave is the PAULA'S CHOICE - Youth-extending Daily Hydrating Fluid SPF 50 I tend to reach for it pretty frequently because of its anti-aging benefits and also because of how lightweight it is! It absorbs into my skin super quickly also which is important when I’m in a hurry and don’t have much time to get ready in the morning. When my skin is on the dry side, I love using the VOLITION - Prismatic Luminizing Shield SPF 50 Not only does it protect my skin from harmful UV rays, but it also gives my complexion the prettiest glow. I love wearing it on makeup free days because of the radiance it adds to my complexion, but it also wears beautifully under makeup. It’s also really lightweight and breathable. Another great and super lightweight formula is the MyChelle dermaceuticals - Sun Shield Liquid SPF 50 I love that it evens out my complexion and adds a little bit of glow while still being a matte formula. It’s also blends into the skin really nicely! I’m a huge fan of Mychelle Beauty’s skincare products! Two of my newer SPF products that I have really been enjoying are the dermalogica - Dynamic Skin Recovery SPF50 Moisturizer and the JANMARINI - Antioxidant Physical Protectant SPF30 The Jan Marini sunscreen is water resistant so I love wearing it when I’m doing anything outdoors because I know I’m not going to sweat it off. It keeps my oils in check and has the added benefits of additional antioxidant protection. The Dermalogica Dynamic Skin Recovery is also a great option because not only is it an SPF, but it’s also a really nice lightweight moisturizer. It absorbs pretty quickly and doesn’t leave any type of residue on my skin either. #cheriecreator
Battle of the sunscreens 🥊
Skin type: combination, acne-prone. Skin concern: avoid sun damage. As I said in another review, I love samples/minis because they give me a chance to try a product before buying the full size. Sunscreens are somewhat complicated. We should look for sunscreens with broad spectrum coverage (UVB/UVA) and an SPF of 30 or higher and always reapply it every 2 hours. You should also be aware of the ingredients that help to deal with specific concerns (acne, fine lines...). This can be tricky, if you are prone to breakouts or have sensitive skin. So you should try sunscreens until you find the best for you Supergoop! - Glowscreen Sunscreen SPF 40 Key ingredients: avobenzone 3%, octisalate 5%, octocrylene 10%. Texture: liquid. Scent: unscented. Price: $36 for 1.7 oz. Claims: a makeup gripping primer that leaves a dewy, glowy finish, with sun protection and hydration in the mix. Thoughts: I really like the healthy glow it gives, it is not greasy and the skin feels very soft. It’s ideal for when you don’t want to put makeup. This is definitely my favorite and I would buy the full size. Supergoop! - Smooth & Poreless Mineral Sunscreen Key ingredients: titanium dioxide 0.7%, zinc oxide 17%. Texture: lightweight lotion. Scent: unscented. Price: $38 for 1.5 oz. Claims: 100% mineral sunscreen (reef safe) that helps leave skin looking mattified and poreless. Thoughts: Is non greasy, leaves skin soft and matte without drying it, it goes on smooth as silk. Very lightweight with a touch of color. Dr. Loretta - Urban Antioxidant Sunscreen SPF 40 Key ingredients: homosalate 8%, octisalate 5%, octocrylene 5%, zinc oxide 8%, Lipochroman®. Texture: cream. Scent: sunscreen 🤷🏻♀️🤔 Price: $50 for 1.7 oz. Claims: Protects the skin from external factors responsible for more than 85% of skin aging (pollution, light, climate and irritants). Contains Lipochroman® that provides antioxidant protection. Thoughts: I like to use it when I am at home or when I take classes online since it protects from the Blue Light emitted by electronic devices. It doesn't leave a white cast behind and leaves a lovely glow. Supergoop! - Unseen Sunscreen Broad Spectrum SPF 40 Key ingredients: avobenzone 3%, homosalate 8%, octisalate 5%, octocrylene 4%. Texture: silky. Scent: unscented. Price: $34 for 1.7 oz. Claims: A totally invisible, weightless, scentless sunscreen that leaves a velvety finish. They change the formula and now is reef-safe (octinoxate free). Thoughts: Leaves skin soft, without feeling greasy, blur pores and doesn’t leave white cast. I really like the silky feeling it leaves. VOLITION - Prismatic Luminizing Shield SPF 50 Key ingredients: Titanium dioxide 3.5%, zinc oxide 19.6%, octinoxate 7.5%. Texture: liquid. Scent: unscented. Price: $35 for 1 oz. Claims: a lightweight, fluid sunscreen that provides broad spectrum SPF and perfects skin with a flawless soft luminescence. The anti-sunscreen for the sunscreen haters. It’s never greasy, smelly or thick. It’s daily protection you'll actually want to wear. Thoughts: I love that it leaves me subtle glow, it doesn't leave white cast and doesn't feel sticky.

The new hibiscus unspottable correcting oil is light weight dry oil designed to hydrate and brighten up the skin tone. The cocktail blend of hibiscus oil, Licorice root extract and sea buckthorn oil is rich in antioxidants and anti inflammatory agents, meant to reduce the look of reoccurring dark spots and post inflammatory hyper pigmentation. I posted a Q&A review on my stories, addressing your most asked questions about this oil✨ I’ll use it for the next few weeks and report back on its effects on my post inflammatory hyper pigmentation✨ VOLITION - Hibiscus Unspottable Correcting Oil

Volition vs. Lancôme, Guess Who WINS!🏅🏅🏅
Volition's Turmeric Brightening Scrub VOLITION - Turmeric Brightening Polish can be used as both a face scrub and a body scrub and is now one of my favorite scrubs! 😘 The Clean at Sephora series products are worth trying. I have sensitive skin so many popular skin care products actually cause a rash or acne to flare on my face!😥 This is why I always try products that come in small packaging first. This scrub contains turmeric, which scrubs off dead skin cells and brightens up the skin. It neither makes my skin feel tight nor does it irritate my skin. However, because of all the granules, you should be gentle when rubbing it in a circular motion. It only needs to be used once a week because it's also unhealthy for your skin if the cuticle layer becomes too thin. Being a famous brand doesn't necessarily mean that its products are of good quality. Lancôme's Rose Sugar Scrub LANCÔME - Rose Sugar Scrublooks a delightful pink, but it doesn't do much for me and isn't worth buying.🤔 It's better to test makeup and skin care products yourself because no matter how good the reputation of a product is or how popular the brand is, it may not suit you.
VOLITION - Turmeric Brightening Polish It is a face and body scrub that gently exfoliates to reveal your natural glow. It also helps tone and hydrate skin. It has Turmeric Extract to brighten, Olive and Sesame Oil to hydrate and soften, Sandalwood Extract to reduce inflammation and micronized Walnut Shell to exfoliate. This product is vegan and cruelty-free. It is for all skin types. The texture is quite grainy and it has no fragrance. It targets Uneven skin texture, Dry skin, Dry patches, Dullness, Hyperpigmentation, Blemish prone. I have used it for around 3 months. Personally I like this product. The polish is gentle enough and does a good job of exfoliating. I have not used it on my face, only on my arms and legs. It leaves my skin soft and smooth. I like turmeric in products. I have not seen any brightening effect though. I do recommend this product. But there can be other options for body scrub too which I have not tried yet. I like this scrub for being very gentle on my skin. The price is 38$ for 4oz which I think is reasonable.

Like an at home facial ✨
✨ The Volition Beauty Detoxifying Silt Gelee Mask is definitely one of my holy grail masks. ✨ I’ve been using this mask for about 6 months and have absolutely LOVED it. Unlike a lot of detoxing masks, is a gel texture and leaves my skin without feeling over dry like many clay detoxing masks. It comes in a pretty decent sized jar, is a bouncy gel formula and is a very interesting and unique mud color. It’s made of black silt, squalane, and jojoba oil. It’s vegan, gluten free, and cruelty free. It cleanses, removes debris and gunk, and leaves you feeling clean and refreshed. I’ve never found it to be drying or irritating, and have loved every single use. 👏🏼 A thin layer of this mask makes me feel like my whole life is okay 😂. The package comes with two round sponges to help you work the product around and removed while providing a gentle and simple physical exfoliation. I LOVE taking this mask off and feeling so soft, smooth, and CLEAN after. It’s gentle, non irritating, and effective. A real winner in my opinion. The application and removal of this mask truly feels like an at home spa experience and boy do I love that. Looking forward to getting this back in my life soon. ✨ VOLITION - Detoxifying Silt Gelee Mask
a very sad empty
VOLITION - Detoxifying Silt Gelee Mask was one of the cutest minis but most importantly, it’s something I would repurchase in the future! I have normal skin type but I am prone to dry patches and oily patches occasionally. This mask is good for all of that and then some! I got this as part of a giveaway prize and I’m debating getting a full size. Claims; — detoxifying — hydrating — clarifying Key Ingredients: — silt — squalane — jojoba oil — quinoa protein My thoughts: — much more hydrating than any clay or detox mask I’ve ever used. It didn’t dry out on me or crack like most of them do! — gel texture, kind of goopy and takes some effort to adhere to skin. But worth the effort! — I legit hate the color of this but I will get over it because of the results: clearer skin and hydrated skin. — moisturizing but also heals my dry spots! So it’s got some insane power. — $60 for the full size, but the mini got 4-5 uses so I’d say it’d last a while! — 5/5 will recommend to anyone except oily skin.

ACV! 🍎 I can't even begin on the benefits of apple cider vinegar, especially for your skin! Acv has antimicrobial properties, so it's very effective in fighting bacterial growth and reducing breakouts. It, also, contains a few different fruit acids(including malic acids) that contribute into being a chemical exfoliant(AHA). This product works to resurface your skin, with light tingling and no irritation, so I can see it being okay for sensitive skin since they are so gentle! I love this product, because it has great ingredients, including acv, lemon and orange extracts(fruit ahas), Witch Hazel(removes dirt and oil, minimizes pores), and glycolic acid(aha). Super clean ingredients! While the smell may be a bit strong(it's vinegar, what did you expect), it doesn't linger at all! When I woke up the next morning after using it, my skin was super smooth, baby soft, and there was absolutely no texture in my skin at all! My skin looked so flawless and glowy😍 it instantly became a product that I love. *kindly gifted*VOLITION - Apple Cider Vinegar Resurfacing Peel Pads
Do you know your AHA's & BHA's? It's like the alphabet, but better. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Alpha Hydroxy Acids (AHA's) exfoliate the top layer of your skin without using a physical object (ie: walnut scrub *shudders*). These acids come in a variety of types: Lactic, Glycolic, and Citric to name a few. These acids all help to reduce fine lines, smooth texture and assist in fixing the effects of sun damage. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Beta Hydroxy Acids (BHA's) are typically found as Salicylic Acid and help lessen breakouts and blackheads. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Together these chemical exfoliants help decrease fine lines, acne scars, and other damage to the skin. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ My favorite exfoliators lately have been:⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Farmacy Honeymoon Glow - an overnight serum that resurfaces your face while you .. sleep. Like, sign me up for the easiest way to get smooth skin!⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Volition Apple Cider Vinegar Resurfacing Pads - these things are so great! I take them with me on trips and they help my skin stay fresh and smooth.

It unclogs pores, diminishes wrinkles, and evens out my skin tone. It. Works. End of story.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
In my neverending search for the perfect eye cream, I’ve discovered Helix AM/PM Eye Gel by Volition beauty. I’ve been using it for a couple of months and I’ve really been enjoying it. In particular, the texture is so beautiful and smoothing. It has a cushiony softness to it that feels so luxurious. I love using it during the day, under makeup. This gel is crazy hydrating, but feels super lightweight. I’m still on the hunt for my ideal evening eye cream, but for daytime, Helix checks all of the boxes.

Let’s talk about @volitionbeauty Strawberry-C 🍓 . I won’t be doing a full review on this one (I actually got it for my sister but couldn’t resist snapping a few shots 📸). So, I wanted to take a quick minute to evaluate the ingredient list. I won’t discuss every ingredient but let’s look at some of the major ones… (#’s indicate position in ingredient list) . 1️⃣&2️⃣Water & Cucumber Water - provide hydration and act as a solvent for other skin-loving ingredients! 3️⃣Glyerin - a humectant that helps to draw moisture to the surface of your skin. 4️⃣Leuconostoc/Radish Root Ferment Filtrate - a preservative that is derived through the fermentation of radish roots. It appears surprisingly high on the ingredient list considering the manufacturer suggested usage rate is 2-4%. 5️⃣&6️⃣Strawberry Seed Extract & Strawberry Fruit Extract - arguably the hero ingredients of the product; strawberries are known to be very high in Vitamin C. Interestingly, I cannot find a single piece of literature that specifies the concentration of Vitamin C actually present Strawberry Seed or Fruit Extract but it’s safe to assume there is at least some. 🔟 3-O-Ethyl Ascorbic Acid: a modified version of Ascorbic Acid (aka. pure Vitamin C). It is more stable in comparison but lacks the depth of research supporting it’s benefit in skincare. That being said, it has been shown effective in combating hyperpigmentation. The serum also contains 9️⃣ Panthenol and 8️⃣ Sodium Hyaluronate both of which are great! While I don’t feel Strawberry-C is a necessary addition to my routine, I do think it’s a gentle, clean, user friendly serum perfect for my baby sis.

Celery Greens for Your Face!
Guysss, I can’t stop reaching for the Celery Green Cream by @volitionbeauty (I’m obsessed)! • • I’m in love with the benefits you get from drinking celery juice, just like I am in love with this moisturizer that uses celery seed extract as a key ingredient. This is just one reason why I love @volitionbeauty 🤍 They are such an innovated brand with beautiful products. • • Of course this moisturizer also has hyaluronic acid and peptides! I find that the creamy gel texture is also very soothing and cooling to apply, it also blends well into my skin. • • It’s $55 which is deff steep for me for a moisturizer, as of right now I have so many so I won’t repurchase right away but it’ll be on a list of favorites 🌙
VOLITION-Celery Green Cream Beauty
I’ve been using the VOLITION - Strawberry-C Brightening Serum off and on for close to a year now after seeing it take social media by storm. This is an amazing Vitamin C serum that claims strawberries contain more vitamin c than oranges. It has a natural scent - it reminds me of strawberry seeds. So no, it doesn’t smell like strawberries but the remnants of the seeds and other natural ingredients. It’s a great antioxidant that is perfect for daytime use under your moisturizer. It’s a milky, transparent pink color and consistency as you can see through the bottle. It’s pleasant and easy to use with the dropper applicator. Great for all skin types. I would recommend this for those who appreciate a well packaged yet beneficial product to add into your skincare routine. Well worth the price as a little goes a long way with this!
VOLITION-Strawberry-C Brightening Serum
volition beauty Snow Mushroom Water Serum This serum is so light and lovely. Glides on like silk and leaves my skin feeling bouncy, hydrated, and smooth, with a slightly dewy finish that I absolutely love. It contains Snow Mushrooms—“nature’s sponges,” they say—which can hold up to 500 times their weight in water, locking in moisture for healthier-looking skin. Other ingredients of note: Marine Water for detoxification and minimization of pores; Watermelon & Apple Extracts, rich in Vitamins C & E for brightening; and Lentil Extract, rich in B5 for smoothing, soothing, and extra moisture-retention. This product has the Clean at Sephora seal, and is totally vegan, gluten-free, hypoallergenic, cruelty-free, and noncomedogenic. I’ve only been using it for a short time, but I’m really enjoying how it makes my skin feel, and the packaging is absolutely gorgeous—frosted glass with a rose gold top that becomes the dropper once you twist it. It’s a little pricey ($62) but if you’re looking for an extra punch of hydration in your routine, this could be it!

I want to post the volition Celery Green Cream which I just emptied💚. This cream has been one of my glowtoproducts (hashtag by allisonturquoise)☀️. It’s oil-free and mattifying which has been perfect for those really warm days. I’m definitely sad to see this one go and am considering re-purchasing, although since my skin is on the dry side I may go for something heavier.
VOLITION-Celery Green Cream with Hyaluronic Acid + Peptides
I’ve been so busy that I haven’t had any time to talk about products I’ve been loving lately but this new baby from volition has been an absolute fav! I’ve been using it everyday for the past 3 weeks and it is so refreshing, especially when stored in the fridge. Definitely a must-have for the summer. I initially didn’t like it because it felt like it was loaded with silicones but it’s the celery seed extract it contains that gives it the smooth, blurring feel/effect. This moisturizer is recommend for those with oily skin but my dry skin hasn’t had any problem with it in terms of hydration. Celery helps remove excess oil for those with oily skin while also keeping dry skin hydrated. It smells like green juice which I’m a huge sucker for so I love it! The texture is very light and comparable to YTTP kale & spinach moisturizer.
