Protect your skin from sun damage☀️🌝
The most crucial step in our everyday morning routine is sunscreen. It should be worn daily to protect our skin from harmful UV rays and help slow down signs of aging. It doesn’t have to cost you a fortune. In fact, I think the best ones out there are from the drugstore. Most sunscreens I have tried are all below $35. In this post, let me share my thoughts on some of them. ⁣ ⁣ ⁣Eucerin - Daily Protection Moisturizing Face Lotion Sunscreen SPF 30 combination, spf 30 | A staple product. One of my top favorites. This is a moisturizer + sunscreen. I especially like using this alone on hotter days. It’s very moisturizing. Skin may look a lil shiny after applying but fades as it settles. May leave white streaks if not blended properly. It is lightweight so it’s perfect for oily skin. ⁣ ⁣ ⁣sun bum - Face Lotion SPF 50 chemical spf 50 | this sunscreen is oil-free and water-resistant. Very lightweight and I think has the thinnest consistency among all sunscreens I have tried. Sinks in beautifully and leaves no white cast. ⁣ ⁣ ⁣DIFFERIN - Oil Absorbing Moisturizer SPF 30 chemical spf 30 | affordable moisturizer + sunscreen. Good for oily skin. It moisturizes well but dries down matte. It doesn’t leave white cast. You get 118ml of product for its price $10.49 which I think is a great deal. ⁣ ⁣ ⁣CeraVe - InVisibleZinc Sunscreen Face Lotion SPF 30 mineral spf 30 | Overall a good sunscreen. Has ceramides and niacinamide to provide additional benefits. If you don’t mind a lil white cast, this would still work well for you. It is non-comedogenic, oil-free so would work well with oily skin. It may pill slightly throughout the day. Does not work well for very dry skin or with dry patches. ⁣ ⁣ ⁣CeraVe - Ultra-Light Moisturizing Lotion SPF 30 For Normal To Oily Skin chemical spf 30 | compared to the InvisibleZinc, this would work better for most skin types. It dries down to a matte finish while still being moisturizing enough. It also is very lightweight - as the name implies. It comes in a 50ml pump bottle which is not much. If you’re applying enough sunscreen daily, you’easily go through it in 2-3 weeks. ⁣ ⁣ ⁣CeraVe - AM Facial Moisturizing Lotion SPF 30 combination spf 30 | good sunscreen but my least favorite of all Cerave sunscreens. It feels heavy on my oily skin and leaves me feeling a lil sticky. This is great for dry skin but may leave white cast - especially if not blended well. ⁣ ⁣ ⁣CLINIQUE - Pep-Start Daily UV Protector Broad Spectrum SPF 50 mineral spf 50 | this has been my most favorite lately. It is a tinted sunscreen and I think would work well even for darker skin tone. Formula feels weightless and blends so easily. Honestly, you could barely feel it. It’s perfect for no-makeup days. It is oil-free and non-comedogenic. It comes in a small bottle of 30ml for $20, which is the only catch. But overall, awesome sunscreen. I highly recommend. ⁣ ⁣ ⁣ ⁣PAULA'S CHOICE - Resist Smoothing Primer Serum SPF30 chemical spf 30 | Wonderful primer + sunscreen. I have to say I liked this better than I expected. I initially underestimated it but I eventually found myself reaching for it on days I have to wear foundation. This gives a flawless finish and even works well with powder foundation. Gives you extra sun protection plus makes your makeup last longer. It retails for $30 but I think it’s worth the price. The 30ml tube lasts a long time. ⁣ ⁣ ⁣elta md SKINCARE - UV Physical Broad-Spectrum SPF 41 mineral spf 41 | has to be one of my top favorite mineral sunscreens. It comes in a tinted formula so slightly helps hide imperfections. It’s oil-free, great for post-procedure, and never irritated my sensitized skin. This is a lil heavier compared to the Clinique one but definitely still light enough for oily skin. Great for all skin types and dermatologists’ no. 1 brand recommendation, you can never go wrong with this sunscreen. ⁣ ⁣ ⁣elta md SKINCARE - UV Shield Full-Body Sunscreen Broad-Spectrum SPF 45 combination spf 45 | sheer, oil-free facial sunscreen. This goes on smoothly and sinks in quickly. Works well under makeup and does not leave a greasy residue. Oil-free and safe for sensitive skin. This may leave a slight white cast for deeper skin tone. ⁣ ⁣ I have also previously used korean sunscreens from Neogen, Cosrx and Purito.⁣ The NEOGENLAB - Day-Light Protection Sun Screen SPF 50 PA+++ has heavy fragrance so overall not a fan of it. ⁣ The PURITO - Centella Green Level Unscented Sun SPF50+ has a great consistency but left me with red irritated skin. ⁣ The COSRX - Aloe Soothing Sun Cream SPF50 PA+++ worked better but the PURITO - Comfy Water Sun Block is one I really loved.

Skin care routine | morning edition 🌞
I have been doing the same skincare routine for the past couple of months now and I think it’s the right one for what my skin is going through at this point of my life. After I finished my tried and true cleanser (Neutrogena - Hydro Boost Hydrating Cleansing Gel ) I decided to give the LA ROCHE-POSAY - Effaclar Purifying Foaming Gel a try as I had read wonderful things about it on this app. Its a great facial cleanser that doesn’t leave my skin squeaky clean or stripped of moisture and thoroughly removes any leftover skincare from the night before. After cleansing I use the SEPHORA COLLECTION - Ultra Glow Serum: Glow + Strengthen Vitamin C Serum all over my face. I place a couple of drops in my hand and gently massage it into my skin, careful not to be rough or tugging at my skin. I follow up with the KYPRIS - ANTIOXIDANT DEW following the same steps as above, gently massaging the product around my face and neck. Lastly I use my NEOGENLAB - Day-Light Protection Sun Screen SPF 50 PA+++ once all the other serums have been absorbed to protect my skin from damaging UV rays. A couple years ago I developed a lot of freckles around my cheekbones and nose that were never there before, and I know that is a result of unprotected sun exposure. Won’t be making that mistake anymore. This is what works for me. I have combo/ oily skin with a very grease prone t-zone. I find that having a proper morning routine helps curb oil production on my t-zone and moisturizes the dryer patches on the perimeter of my face, which leads to a more seamless and longer lasting makeup application. Xx.

Minis that I loved 💘
Happy Mini Monday 👌🏾 These are some products that I actually loved and bought bigger sizes of: SOL de Janeiro - Brazilian Bum Bum Cream . Smells heavenly and leaves my skin so soft. This is costly, but its so worth it. HERBIVORE - Blue Tansy Mask . I’ve never finished a mini so fast. My skin felt so soft and clear after every use. I used this the recommended every other day and now that I have my new one I can use it every week. Nature Lab. - Shine Clarifying Scalp Scrub Yes any texture can use a scalp scrub and I loved this one. I used it as a patch test on the middle (where my hair is most congested) and i can’t wait for my bigger size for my next wash day! @cosrx : snail mucinCOSRX - Advanced Snail 96 Mucin Power Essence . I still have the bigger size of this baby but Ulta sent me a sample size which I still love. NEOGENLAB - Real Rerment Micro Essence This baby one plenty of awards last year and I can see why. I actually use this one in the morning and the snail mucin essence at night. It’s way lighter and since I don’t use harsh ingredients I don’t need the buffer effect that I need at night. Have you tried any of these minis?

Gentle Am routine ✨
Alright, so this is my routine in the morning. Didn’t change it for winter weather yet and I don’t know if I will honestly. My morning routine contains a few actives but mostly trying to take care of my dehydrated combination skin. I only rinse my face with lukewarm water in the morning except if I “slugged” the night before. I will use sioris - Cleanse Me Softly Milk Cleanser as this is my current pm second cleanser. 🥛 Like my pm routine, I use both a first essence and a toner. My favorite steps even if they’re not 🌈 essentials 🌈 . In the am I use NEOGENLAB - Real Rerment Micro Essence (thx james welsh) and I have to say I love it. My skin drinks it right up and automatically calms any tightness I might feel on my skin. I then follow with I'm from - Rice Toner (again, james). I love that it contains niacinamide as I don’t like using it in high amounts (like in a serum) it’s also quite moisturizing for my combination skin. Really makes your skin glow. 🍚 I will then alternate the use of the The Ordinary - Ascorbyl Glucoside Solution 12% and PAULA'S CHOICE - 10% Azelaic Acid Booster as my actives. On days I use the Vit C, I will use right after the toner and will follow with The Ordinary - Caffeine Solution 5% + EGCG . The caffeine solution was really working the first months but now my under eye doesnt seem to react as much to it... will probably not buy it again but the bottle last ages so I will finish it. ☕️ For the ascorbyl solution, it’s a really nice and gentle option. Will switch to straight L ascorbic acid serum when the ascorbyl is done though :) 🍋 If I use the azelaic acid, I will skip the vit C and apply the caffeine solution straight after toner. I will then put on the VERSED - DEW POINT Moisturizing Gel-Cream which is a super nice soothing gel moisturizer with really impressive ingredient list for a drugstore product. I will THEN apply the azelaic acid over it to prevent any irritation. 🌿 I will end the routine with the famous PURITO - Centella Green Level Unscented Sun SPF50+ . Do I really need to explain how awesome this product is ? 🌞**will discontinue use after I’m done with it. Any recommendations for a cruelty free spf available in Canada?*** If you have any recommendations to make it more “cold weather friendly” your suggestions are appreciated ❄️

Irritation? Don't know her. 💁🏻‍♀️
Peels have been key products in my skin care routine, so when the Dr Dennis Gross - Alpha Beta Universal Daily Peel wasn't working for me anymore I was devastated af. I also tried the Kate Somerville - ExfoliKate Intensive Exfoliating Treatment and it would make my skin burn too. I also find the smell to be horrible and the gritty stuff made it burn more. I heard good things about the NEOGENLAB - Bio-Peel Gauze Peeling Lemon and I've been loving K-beauty this year, so I gave it a try. This is my new favorite product. I saw instant results and it makes my skin glow. One thing people get wrong about peels is that a burning sensation means that it's working. A slight tingling is fine, but if it feels like it's burning, you might want to use another product! Weekly peels should not burn. I had no bad reaction with this product. It contains lactic acid, glycolic acid, and lemon, orange, and papaya extracts. It helped SO MUCH with texture and my hyperpigmentation so far. It combines gentle physical exfoliation with chemical exfoliation, as one side is a gauze and the other is a quilted pad with softer texture. If you have sensitive skin like me, I'm pretty sure this would work for you too. They also have the wine and green tea options to target other skin concerns. I use this once a week and have been using it for about a month now.

Do you want to get rid of hyperpigmentation?
NEOGENLAB - Neogen Dermalogy Real Vita C Serum 𝗖𝗹𝗮𝗶𝗺𝘀 Removes blemishes, brightens dull skin tone & nourishes tired skin for healthy-looking complexion. 𝗜𝗻𝗴𝗿𝗲𝗱𝗶𝗲𝗻𝘁𝘀 🍊22% of sodium ascorbyl phosphate & niacinamide - brightens skin tone, remove blemishes 🍊Collagen & Hyaluronic Acid - moisturising & smoothing effects 🍊Citrus fruit extracts - revitalize skin 𝗠𝘆 𝗧𝗵𝗼𝘂𝗴𝗵𝘁𝘀 I was so excited to use this I didn't patch test 🙀 (despite the high % - NO irritation on skin at all); I used AM & PM as I wanted speedy results. ⚠️After 1 week of usage I added in my actives in the PM so I only use this in the AM. ⚠️After 1-2 more weeks, I felt major dryness on my lips (like cracking on the side kinda dryness). Immediately I stopped AHA but still using this in AM. Lips was better after stopping AHA & applying soothing balm as well as moisturised my lips 10x more! Usually when things happen, I will do an elimination method to see which is the culprit. This case, I suspect it's the high % & mix of actives (although not used in same routine🤔). Thankfully I did not breakout from using this! ✅On the other hand, my scars/PIH absolutely LIGHTENED!! I am really in love with this & definitely exceeds my expectation. My scars around my chin are disappearing & I'm working on those near my eyes/eyelids by using the lesser amount. I start applying this on my whole face, then will spot treat on the areas concerned. I will definitely keep on using this!! Repurchase NEOGENLAB - Neogen Dermalogy Real Vita C Serum ? YES!! 𝙍𝙚𝙘𝙤𝙢𝙢𝙚𝙣𝙙𝙖𝙩𝙞𝙤𝙣 Please do not hurry when using skincare. SLOW DOWN & let them do their magic...🤣

Potent vitamin c serum
The NEOGENLAB - Neogen Dermalogy Real Vita C Serum is an interesting vitamin c serum that contains a blend of 10% sodium ascorbyl phosphate and 12% vita c acerola-plex which I believe is just their blend of citrus extracts such as orange, grapefruit, lemon, lime, tangerine, and cherry extracts. This also contains niacinamide, sea buckthorn extract, a small amount of ascorbic acid (12ppm) to help boost the brightening benefits. There are also hydrating and soothing ingredients as well such as sodium hyaluronate, panthenol, and vitamin e. This has a clear watery texture that quickly sinks into the skin. It does leave a tacky finish that kind of disappears after something is layered over it. It wasn’t really an issue for me. There are fragrance components such as citrus oils, limonene, and linalool in this serum which I’m not a fan of but at least the performance was pretty good. My skin easily scars after breakouts which leaves me with pesky dark spots so I always keep a vitamin c serum handy just to help with that. This one helped lighten them pretty quickly after a week or so of use. After about a month of consistent use, my dark spots were pretty much gone. I did experience a purging period with this serum but luckily it wasn’t a huge one where a ton of acne appeared. This also tingled every tine I used it as well. I suspect these reactions are from the percentage of vitamin c as well as the citrus extracts possibly. This began to oxidize after about two months but I ended up finishing it before it could oxidize further. Overall, it’s a decent vitamin c serum. But I’m probably not going to repurchase due to the fragrance components in this. I much preferred their powder version of this more which had a better ingredients profile for me. Have you guys tried this yet? If so, what are your thoughts? Rating: 3/5 🌟 #CherieCreator #Neogen

💚 These Peeling Pads 💚
I am in love with NEOGENLAB - Neogen Dermalogy Bio-pell Gauze Peeling Green Tea they not only exfoliate my skin but clear and moisturize my face. 💚I’ve shown you guys the pad after I had used it. And that’s after I double cleansed my face. I cleansed with an oil cream and a foam cleanser and that’s all the dirt my face still have. 💚The pasa have two sides; first you exfoliate with one side then you moisturize with the other size. I used over my face and neck twice and sometimes three times a week. 💚Love the smell of tea

FAVORITE EXFOLIATORS FOR DRY, SENSITIVE SKIN
Exfoliation: There are three different types of exfoliation - chemical, physical and enzyme. My favorites are chemical and physical. • • • 🤍 Chemical Exfoliation 🤍 • • • Chemical exfoliation uses AHAs and/or BHAs to loosen dead skin cells that buildup on your face without scrubbing or beads. I chemically exfoliate 2-3 times a week. • • • @theordinary Mandelic Acid ($6.80) - contains AHAs to hydrate the skin while removing dead skin cells. @kravebeauty Kale-Lalu-YaHa ($25) - contains glycolic acid which is also an AHA. @farmacybeauty Honeymoon Glow AHA Resurfacing Serum ($58) - contains 14% AHA and BHA to resurface and hydrate the skin overnight. • • • 🖤 Physical Exfoliation 🖤 • • • Physical exfoliation is going to physically remove dead skin cells off the face to brighten the skin. I physically exfoliate once a week, typically on my “Sunday” before the work week. • • • @neogen_official Bio-Peel Gauze Peeling ($27) - infused with green tea and glycolic acid (AHA) to hydrate and gently exfoliate the surface of your skin. @dermalogica Daily Microfoliant ($59) - includes salicylic acid and antioxidants that remove dead skin, help soothe your breakouts and leave your skin feeling super soft and clean. Once you add water, it turns into a paste like consistency. I love how it doesn’t leave any harsh tears in my skin.

Brand spotlight: Neogen
▶️NEOGENLAB - Real Fresh Cleansing Stick Green Tea - winner of the 2017 Teen Vogue Acne Awards and deemed “one of the coolest creations to come out of Korea,” this travel friendly and all in one stick cleanser was formulated with 13 botanical oils to breakdown makeup, sunscreen, and cleanse your skin of all impurities. There are also natural green tea leaves imbedded in the cleansing stick to provide a gentle exfoliation to reveal brighter more even toned skin. I’ve tried stick cleansers in the past and while they were convenient for traveling, they always left a film on my skin and tight afterwards. I had the same reservations about this one but to my surprise, this left my skin feeling hydrated and fresh. I assume it’s because of the oils in the formula but I really enjoyed using this. It lathers nicely and cleanses my skin of everything. ▶️ NEOGENLAB - Real Rerment Micro Essence - one of my all time favorite essences. This hydrating and brightening essence is formulated with 93% naturally fermented ingredients as well as betaine, allantoin, sodium hyaluronate, adenosine, niacinamide, and various amino acids. I forgot how much I loved this essence. Used directly after cleansing, this watery first treatment essence quickly absorbs to restore hydration and prep my skin for the remainder of my routine without any stickiness. There’s also the plumping effect that this gives after 1-2 skins that I love so much. After consistent use, I can easily see my skin looking brighter and more even toned. This is probably one of the more hydrating FTE’s that I’ve tried. ▶️ NEOGENLAB - Real Ferment Micro Serum - the perfect companion for its essence counterpart. This viscous and creamy gel serum delivers a boost of nutrients and antioxidants to the skin with its elegant formula comprised of 61% fermented ingredients as well as niacinamide, adenosine, sodium hyaluronate, centella asiatica, hydrolyzed collagen, ascorbic acid, and vitamin e.This is very moisturizing and it leaves a bit of tacky and dewy finish once it’s absorbed. Upon application, you can see slightly plumper and brighter skin. It layers well with no pilling issues so regardless, you won’t even feel it once you’ve applied something else on top. Over time, I saw noticeably brighter skin that had that felt bouncier and firmer. ▶️NEOGENLAB - Neogen Dermalogy Canadian Clay Pore Cleanser - a 2 in 1 detoxifying mask and cleanser that eliminates excess sebum and blackheads while also cleansing the skin of makeup, dead skin cells, and clogged pores. This mask cleansers contains a ton of extracts, micro-particles of natural glacial marine soil, and colloidal clay from West Coast British Columbia, Canada. This has a creamy clay texture that easily spreads onto the skin. After a few minutes of application, the clay begins to foam on the skin to help draw impurities from the pores. Once the foaming has stopped, proceed to massage it into the skin and then rinse with water. I thought this was fun to use but using this everyday left my skin a bit dry. I preferred to use it every few days which was nice to help refresh my skin. ▶️NEOGENLAB - Neogen Dermalogy A-Clear Aid Soothing Spot Patch - these are your typical hydrocolloid acne patches that help absorb excess sebum and secretions from your breakouts while also protecting the area from dirt and bacteria. These come in two sizes which is great for different sized pimples. I always enjoy having acne patches on hand because they help prevent me from picking at my pimples. After I intentionally or accidentally pop my spots, these are great for reducing the size of them overnight.

My Current Favorite Serums
▶️ BE PLAIN - Cicaful Ampoule - a concentrated soothing serum containing 84% centella asiatica extract. I really like how quickly this soothes any skin irritations I have. It also adequately hydrates the skin as well without being sticky. Also it’s fragrance free. ▶️ NATURIUM - Vitamin C Complex Serum - a brightening treatment serum formulated with a vitamin c complex that’s made up of stabilized and encapsulated l-ascorbic acid, sodium ascorbyl phosphate, and bioactive fruit blend. I just started using and I love the lightweight gel texture. I’ll have to continue using to see any results though. ▶️ TIA'M - Vita B3 Source - currently my most favorite niacinamide based serum. It contains 10% niacinamide and 2% arbutin to correct pigmentation, regulate sebum production, and hydrate the skin. This isn’t a fast acting product but I see a noticeable difference in my skin tone over time. It helps to fade my dark spots very effectively. ▶️ NEOGENLAB - Real Ferment Micro Serum - a gel cream like serum containing 61% fermented ingredients to help with skin elasticity and provide antioxidant benefits. I love how this makes my skin so soft and smooth. It also brings a subtle glow to my skin as well thanks to the rice ferment filtrate in the formula. ▶️ dear, klairs - Fundamental Watery Oil Drop - my go to hydrating serum so far this summer. It gives me the benefits of using a facial oil without the heaviness. It’s water based and contains green tea, ceramides, peptides, rice, kelp, and sodium hyaluronate to hydrate and nourish the skin. This leaves you looking glowy af! #CherieCreator

July 2020 Empties
Here are the products I’ve finished in the month of July. I have a small review about each product down below along with an emoji indicating whether I plan to repurchase or not. If you guys have any additional questions about any of the products, feel free to ask them in the comments. 👍 - will repurchase 🤔 - liked but not sure about repurchasing 👎 - won’t repurchase ▶️ KEEP COOL - Soothe lotion - lightweight emulsion type moisturizer that performs like a creamy serum to keep the skin adequately moisturized and hydrated. 👍 ▶️ ISNtree - Hyaluronic Acid Aqua Gel Cream - gel cream moisturizer formulated with 5 different types of hyaluronic acid to deeply hydrate the skin. One of the best gel cream I’ve ever tried. 👍 ▶️ ISNtree - Hyaluronic Acid Toner - slightly viscous toner with 3 different types of hyaluronic acid to hydrate and balance the skin. Basic no frills toner that plumps the skin. 🤔 ▶️ ISNtree - C-Niacin Toning Ampoule - skin brightening treatment that uses 69% sea buckthorn fruit extracts and 2% niacinamide. Great alternative for those who can’t tolerate traditional vitamin c serums. 🤔 ▶️ Beauty of Joseon - Calming Serum : Green Tea + Panthenol -lightweight serum that uses 76.49% green tea leaf water and 2% panthenol to hydrate and the soothe the skin. Performed really well for my skin by reducing redness and irritations. 👍 ▶️ @nichebeautylab purifying gel cleanser* - daily treatment gel cleanser that helps to regulate skin oiliness, reduce sebum production, and cleanse pores. Contains salicylic acid and willow bark extract. Wasn’t drying on the skin. 🤔 ▶️ íUNIK - Black Snail Restore Serum - snail mucin based serum that claims to help with skin brightening, skin soothing, reduction of signs of premature aging, and increased cell regeneration. Lackluster results for my liking. Essentially just a good hydrating serum. 🤔 ▶️ TROIAREUKE - AGT Hydro Essence Moisturizing Gel - viscous gel type essence that’s adheres very well to skin to condition and provide hydration. Didn’t work out well for me. Caused itching and irritations after prolonged use. 👎 ▶️ TROIAREUKE - Acsen UV Protector Essence -my top favorite sunscreen for oily skin types. Can’t recommend much since it’s kinda pricy. I’ve posted a full review of this already so feel free to check it out. 👍 ▶️ THE inkey LIST - Oat Cleansing Balm - affordable cleansing balm with colloidal oats and oat kernel oil to provide a nourishing and thorough cleanse to remove oil based impurities. It just works. 👍 ▶️ Dr.Althea - Resveratrol 345NA_Intensive Repair Cream repairitive cream with a gel cream like texture. Contains resveratrol and a ton of botanicals to help nourish, brighten, soothe, and heal the skin. 👍 ▶️ I'm from - Mugwort Essence - essence containing 100% fermented korean mugwort to hydrating and soothe inflamed, sensitive, and reactive skin. Skin benefits are shown gradually overtime with consistent use. 👍 ▶️ LANEIGE - Eye Sleeping Mask - watery gel sleeping mask to keep the under eye area hydrated and plump overnight. A nice but unnecessary product. Didn’t really do much for eye area. Too fragranced for my liking. 👎 ▶️ NEOGENLAB - Real Fresh Cleansing Stick Green Tea - two in one cleanser in a stick form that can easily cleanse the skin of both oil and water based impurities. Doesn’t strip the skin. Contains green tea and 13 botanical oils. 🤔 ▶️ THE inkey LIST - Retinol Serum - a gentle retinol serum containing retistar which is a combination of multiple actives. Helped with controlling my acne breakouts. Didn’t irritate or dry my skin out. 🤔 ▶️ KEEP COOL - Soothe Bamboo Sun Essence SPF50+ - lightweight sun essence that contains 40% bamboo water to keep the skin hydrated and soothed. Became a favorite of mines fairly quick. Already repurchased. 👍 ▶️ TROIAREUKE - Skin Complex Formula Facial Toner Spray - lightweight watery toner mist that contains a ton of botanicals to provide strong antioxidant benefits to the skin. Not sure it did much for me other than kept my skin hydrated. Didn’t irritate or break me out. 🤔

It lathers nicely and cleanses my skin of everything. ▶️ NEOGENLAB - Real Rerment Micro Essence - one of my all time favorite essences. This hydrating and brightening essence is formulated with 93% naturally fermented ingredients as well as betaine, allantoin, sodium hyaluronate, adenosine, niacinamide, and various amino acids. I forgot how much I loved this essence. Used directly after cleansing, this watery first treatment essence quickly absorbs to restore hydration and prep my skin for the remainder of my routine without any stickiness. There’s also the plumping effect that this gives after 1-2 skins that I love so much. After consistent use, I can easily see my skin looking brighter and more even toned. This is probably one of the more hydrating FTE’s that I’ve tried. ▶️ NEOGENLAB - Real Ferment Micro Serum - the perfect companion for its essence counterpart. This viscous and creamy gel serum delivers a boost of nutrients and antioxidants to the skin with its elegant formula comprised of 61% fermented ingredients as well as niacinamide, adenosine, sodium hyaluronate, centella asiatica, hydrolyzed collagen, ascorbic acid, and vitamin e.This is very moisturizing and it leaves a bit of tacky and dewy finish once it’s absorbed. Upon application, you can see slightly plumper and brighter skin. It layers well with no pilling issues so regardless, you won’t even feel it once you’ve applied something else on top. Over time, I saw noticeably brighter skin that had that felt bouncier and firmer. ▶️NEOGENLAB - Neogen Dermalogy Canadian Clay Pore Cleanser - a 2 in 1 detoxifying mask and cleanser that eliminates excess sebum and blackheads while also cleansing the skin of makeup, dead skin cells, and clogged pores. This mask cleansers contains a ton of extracts, micro-particles of natural glacial marine soil, and colloidal clay from West Coast British Columbia, Canada. This has a creamy clay texture that easily spreads onto the skin. After a few minutes of application, the clay begins to foam on the skin to help draw impurities from the pores. Once the foaming has stopped, proceed to massage it into the skin and then rinse with water. I thought this was fun to use but using this everyday left my skin a bit dry. I preferred to use it every few days which was nice to help refresh my skin. ▶️NEOGENLAB - Neogen Dermalogy A-Clear Aid Soothing Spot Patch - these are your typical hydrocolloid acne patches that help absorb excess sebum and secretions from your breakouts while also protecting the area from dirt and bacteria. These come in two sizes which is great for different sized pimples. I always enjoy having acne patches on hand because they help prevent me from picking at my pimples. After I intentionally or accidentally pop my spots, these are great for reducing the size of them overnight.

What's surprising about this s
What's surprising about this serum? Neogen used sake in it! So pretty much my nose was right because this serum smells to me like some fermented alcohol like wine and what's amazing in this ingredient is that it can brighten your skin.

FAVORITE EXFOLIATORS FOR DRY, SENSITIVE SKIN
FAVORITE EXFOLIATORS FOR DRY, SENSITIVE SKIN
Exfoliation: There are three different types of exfoliation - chemical, physical and enzyme. My favorites are chemical and physical. • • • 🤍 Chemical Exfoliation 🤍 • • • Chemical exfoliation uses AHAs and/or BHAs to loosen dead skin cells that buildup on your face without scrubbing or beads. I chemically exfoliate 2-3 times a week. • • • @theordinary Mandelic Acid ($6.80) - contains AHAs to hydrate the skin while removing dead skin cells. @kravebeauty Kale-Lalu-YaHa ($25) - contains glycolic acid which is also an AHA. @farmacybeauty Honeymoon Glow AHA Resurfacing Serum ($58) - contains 14% AHA and BHA to resurface and hydrate the skin overnight. • • • 🖤 Physical Exfoliation 🖤 • • • Physical exfoliation is going to physically remove dead skin cells off the face to brighten the skin. I physically exfoliate once a week, typically on my “Sunday” before the work week. • • • @neogen_official Bio-Peel Gauze Peeling ($27) - infused with green tea and glycolic acid (AHA) to hydrate and gently exfoliate the surface of your skin. @dermalogica Daily Microfoliant ($59) - includes salicylic acid and antioxidants that remove dead skin, help soothe your breakouts and leave your skin feeling super soft and clean. Once you add water, it turns into a paste like consistency. I love how it doesn’t leave any harsh tears in my skin.

This Neogen A-Clear Soothing O
This Neogen A-Clear Soothing Overnight Mask sat in my Amazon cart for a while because I was hoping the price would drop. When it did, I bought it immediately for only $13! 🙌🏾 I’d been eager to try this product because I love sleeping masks & my skin is extremely prone to breakouts. This mask has salicylic acid, tea tree leaf oil, & centella asiatica, which are a bomb combo for treating acne & soothing the skin. 🔥 I wore this 3 nights in a row last week & my skin is way better for it. My acne hasn’t been nearly as bad & my skin is recovering quicker. 💯 I could rave about this mask all day but I’ll just say that it’s absolutely worth a try! 💛

 Here are 2 serums that I’ve b
Here are 2 serums that I’ve been loving and been incorporating into my routine lately! - Innsifree Green Tea Seed Serum Neogen H2 Dermadeca Serum Spray - The innisfree Green Tea Seed Serum has been a cult-favorite for a long time now so I always knew I had to have it in my stash. Now that I was able to try it I totally get the hype, one pump and it gets my face super hydrated, makes my skin soft and it’s absorbed in a snap. Green tea is a good anti-oxidant and can be calming to inflamed skin. If you’re looking for a good serum with a good price I totally recommend this! - Now with the neogen H2 Dermadeca, I was quite confused by this at first. Is it a serum? Is it a mist? But with some research, I figured it’s a full-on serum just in a mist form. It’s packed with good ingredients, with hydrogen being at the top of the list but also niacinamide and vitamin c which brightens the skin and fight signs of aging. I love a few spritz of this before, in the middle and after my routine (it even works well on top of make up!) I also really like how ultra-fine the mist on this one is compared to others. If you’re lazy at applying a lot of products then this one might just be for you.

Neogen Bio-Peel Gauze Peeling
Neogen Bio-Peel Gauze Peeling Wine 💕 I definitely had a difficult time choosing between wine, lemon and green tea~ I decided to get wine because it’s more on promoting clearer, smoother and tighter skin. It’s both a manual and chemical exfoliator ✨ There are two sides for each 30 pads and I use the gauze side before the other and rinse it afterwards. I use this after cleansing about 1-2 times a week. It really helps with my skin’s texture and it gently gets rid of the dead skin cells - leaving my skin softer, smooother and brighter. . The smell is amazing! I’m sure you’ve seen this in any review. Grape-y 🍇💕 I super love the packaging! I’m sure I’m able to recycle the container. It is a bit bulky so if you do travel a lot, they have a sachet version. Overall, I would rate it 4/5. I’m trying lemon next after this tub. Now, I’m not sure where I had bought this because I’ve had it before I started Glam Diary haha and I wasn’t tracking stuff before.. But it’s pretty much in every online store.
