“NO FAIL” RETINOL ROUTINE - PM
I shared earlier this week my “no fail” AM skincare routine the products seen in that post I’ve used time and time again. They’ve never let me down and along with the ones listed here, are repurchases that keep my skin happy and healthy! Milk MAKEUP - Vegan Milk Cleanser I like to use this cleanser when my face needs a little extra pampering. Milk Cleanser is super soft and gentle and leaves my face feeling very nourished. INDIE LEE - CoQ-10 Toner same as used in the AM. I'm from - Rice Toner I honestly cannot get enough of hydrating products, especially when I am using my retinal. I have probably five open at this time and will use them all or a few at a time. This Rice Toner is so soft and smooth. If you’re into essences or toners this is a must try! I splash a few drops into my hand and then pat it onto my face leaving it wet until I add.... THE inkey LIST - Hyaluronic Acid Serum I lock the Rice Toner in with HA. I am indoors most of the time, a bit of a recluse, but my skin still get very dry so I lock in the hydration first and end with the moisturizer! Medik8 - Crystal Retinal this is a bit expensive but well worth it to me because within weeks of use I saw significant changes. I’ve been asked my so many what I use for skincare as I have hardly any lines and I used to worship the sun with no sunscreen (⚠️) But I’ve been lucky and take very good care of my skin now. You only need a pea size amount of retinal for your face and add it to DRY skin. YOUTH TO THE PEOPLE - Superberry Hydrate + Glow Dream Mask last up is my new favorite (on my second bottle), the YTTP Dream Mask. You only need a small amount with this and I go through about two a year as I use it every night. It’s gentle enough to use nightly but if you’re using other treatments you may want to alternate nights (if you have sensitive skin as it has vitamin c). You can put a light layer of moisturizer on before applying this but for me, this is plenty. The Crystal Retinal I use is non-drying so I am good with just the mask. But if your retinol tends to dry your face, I’d recommend adding a light layer of moisturizer before the dream mask. ⭐️ That’s it! You could eliminate the 2 toners (Co-Q10 & Rice Toner) and simplify it down to 4 steps. I’ll be sharing my PM exfoliating routine soon! One of my favorites!!! I never thought I’d love exfoliating so much 😂 Much ❤️ my @cherie family! 🍒 #cheriecreator

MY MOST USED “NO FAIL” AM ROUTINE
The products you see have been products I’ve been using time and again for two years, around the time I got serious about my skincare life. These steps I never skip although I have added others or tried different brands. I will say again that I have used a more expensive version of Hyaluronic Acid and while it truly felt soft and comforting to my face, I don’t feel this is where my high dollars need to be spent. INDIE LEE - Brightening Cleanser best cleanser around! You can even leave it on longer and use it as a mask! This helps target dull, uneven textures, dark spots and pores. It’s a gel like texture. I am all about products that brighten my skin. INDIE LEE - CoQ-10 Toner next up is to tone and what better with one that will hydrate, soothe and protect your skin with the antioxidant coenzyme Q10 and Hyaluronic Acic! Plump that face up! I like to splash just a few drops of water on my face first then come in with Co-10. All we can do to help seal that hydration 💦 THE inkey LIST - Hyaluronic Acid Serum Then comes HA to really lock in that hydration. So may find it hard as people claim it can be “sticky” or “tacky” but I go right it after spraying my Co-Q10 and do a quick rub and then immediately tap it in. Then let it completely dry. If you don’t, you can have your following products pill, and believe me, that’s not fun! I believe everyone should have HA in their routine. There are so many variations out there at many different cost points but if you do your research and are comfortable using what works for you, go for it. Mine costs me $6.80 a month. I use it both am & pm. FARMACY - Very Cherry Bright 15% Clean Vitamin C Serum with Acerola Cherry depicted in the picture as the cute little 🍒 is VCB. I am currently out and my order is taking much longer than I’d like. But I have probably used almost 10 different brands of vitamin C (in comments) and I’ll still be goin back to Farmacy. I love the light scent and I had seen results pretty quickly, never any side effects. TATCHA - The Dewy Skin Cream I have a handful of creams I do adore and I could really probably spend less than dear ole Tatcha, but oh I do so love this cream. It just makes my face so happy. It’s a bit richer but my mother who has oily skin loves it! If I am hanging inside - tbh that’s 90% of my life - I do a light amount and then follow up about 10 mins later with sunscreen. Supergoop! - Unseen Sunscreen Broad Spectrum SPF 40 I do wear sunscreen indoors although I’m never near direct light. Life of a migrainer! 🤯but I figure one can’t aver be too careful. Plus I have ones open unfinished from the summer. But it is my stance that, yes, you should weat sunscreen indoors. It’s your best line of defense! Unseen Sunscreen makes me feel as if I have nothing on! My most used, never fail AM routine! ❤️ @cheriefam 🍒

Indie lee empty & repurchase
INDIE LEE - Brightening Cleanser I just finished my bottle of this that I bought in September & repurchase it a week ago. Came in a glass bottle Pros super gentle great for sensitive skin short ingredient list and clean 🍓🍅 does have a brightening effect! 🌟 Cons expensive especially since it only lasted roughly 2 months! doesn’t fully remove stubborn makeup even after using a makeup remover. Therefore I now only use it in the morning and a stronger cleanser at night INDIE LEE - Active Oil-Free Moisturizer I really needed a moisturizer and I felt indie lee would work well considering I enjoyed the face wash so much. Came in a glass bottle. Pros actually moisturizes without an oily feel or shine 🧴 clean/ simple ingredients doesn’t irritate my sensitive skin 🚫 I think this will last longer than the face wash hasn’t caused any acne 👍🏻 Cons really horrible earthy smell when I first used it - kinda goes away after a while of getting used to the smell expensive :( I really like indie lee but they are pretty expensive in my opinion. I would however purchase them again until I find something of equal quality that’s less expensive.

Step up to the hydration station | 👋🏻👶🏼🌊
INDIE LEE - Squalane Facial Oil Clearly I’m on a little facial oil kick, having just posted about the YTTP one yesterday! I picked up an Indie Lee discovery kit a few weeks ago because there’s so much hype surrounding this brand, and I was dying to find out why. One of the items I loved the most from the set is their Squalane Facial Oil! What I love about it: ✨ This oil is 100% pure olive-derived squalane. Squalane is a hydrocarbon, meaning that it is an organic chemical compound made only from hydrogen and carbon atoms. Squalane in particular is known as a fatty molecule that maintains your skin’s moisture barrier, fights signs of aging, and helps your skin adjust to whatever environment you’re in. ✨ Indie Lee’s formula is lightweight - I often find that many companies create oils that are soooo heavy and greasy feeling. This one absorbs right into your skin, leaving you feeling silky, not sticky or wet. ✨ Indie Lee says that this oil can also improve the appearance of texture, tone, and elasticity: I noticed some difference in skin texture after one week of use, and a pretty obvious increase in hydration after two weeks. ✨ Indie Lee is cruelty-free, leaves out harmful ingredients, and uses recycled paper for all of their outer packaging. Most of their products are vegan as well, besides two that are accessibly listed on their site! Super helpful. I’ve really been liking introducing some Indie Lee into my routine and am looking forward to sharing my thoughts on more of their products with all of you! 💭 Have you tried any of their products? If so, what should I pick up next?! 🛍

My favorite oil based serums 💕
Happy Monday 🌱 This week for my #skincarestepspotlight I bring you my oil based serums! With the colder months slowly among us face oils become one of my favorite steps in my skin care routine. My favorites include ✨ Rose hip seed oil: @deciem is one of my favorites. This is one of my favorites for its moisturizing properties. My skin soaks this one right up! The Ordinary - 100% Organic Cold Pressed Rose Hip Seed Oil ✨ Squalene: @indie_lee squalene face oil is new to my collection but I have been loving it! Though I don’t have oily skin it does help with oil control for those who do. It improved the appearance of texture and smooths out my complexion. INDIE LEE - Squalane Facial Oil ✨ Maracuja oil: the @tartecosmetics maracuja oil is well loved in my collection. It is packed with vitamin c and essential fatty acids that help boost my skins radiance as well as hydrate it.

+Gentle Clean Cleansers+
Indie lee a clean beauty brand whose mission is: “to provide healthier skincare options is embodied through its undertaking of rigorous testing protocols to ensure clean, high-performance products” Today I am sharing my skin experience with two of Indie Lee Products. Both are gel type cleansers. I had some pros and cons using the INDIE LEE - Rosehip Cleanser . To start of this is suggested for sensitive skin types and since I have sensitive skin I decided to try it out. I really like its natural rose hip oil fragrance (non-irritant); gentle (light foam) and soothing to skin. However, I did not like the after feel on my skin after cleansing. It did feel smooth but, my skin felt like there was residue ( really hard to explain sorry). This feeling was usually around my nose. Contains: 🔅Rosehip Seed Oil 🔅Red seaweed extract 🔅Vitamins A,C, & E Price & size: 30ml - $10 125ml- $34 While using INDIE LEE - Brightening Cleanser my skin felt super clean as if it vacuumed all impurities out of my pores. The first thing I smelled when using this was the light fragrance of strawberry. Gentle and Nourishing to skin. Great for oily skin types. Contains: 🔅Strawberry seed oil 🔅 Hydrolyzed wheat protein 🔅 Tomato extract Price & size: 30ml - $10 125ml - $34 Overall both are great and this review is based on how my skin felt after using these cleansers. Just because we share the same skin type does not mean we can use the same product. Price I think it is worth buying is not too expensive and glass is durable (I’ve dropped these many times and surprisingly the glass did not break)

.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ On another skincare related note, the Sephora Favorites Crush-Worthy Skincare set is really good. Here are a few tidbits from it that I'm particularly excited about (alas, Tom Ford is not part of it).⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Volition beauty Snow Mushroom Water Serum - Super moisturizing! Used this after a good exfoliation and it left my skin feeling soft and hydrated. Wrinkles hate hydration.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ glow recipe Watermelon Glow Pink Juice Moisturizer - If this one hasn't come across your radar yet, well time to get new equipment. It's almost cult-status with how many people love the cooling gel texture with all sorts of good nutrients locked in. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ indie lee Rosehip Cleanser - One I've been wanting to try for a while! It's great for sensitive skin, and packed with all the good vitamins your skin wants. While my skin isn't sensitive, this cleanser did leave it feeling fresh and clean :)⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

Unfortunately this didn't work great for me! 🥺
I have dark circles and fine lines and I look for eye creams that target these concerns. Recently I won this Indie Lee I-Waken Eye Serum in Cherie Cheerleader prize!! INDIE LEE - I-Waken Eye Serum I'm glad to have put this to a test! I liked the liquidy thick serum consistency and the milky texture of this product. Unlike many other eye creams it's great for absorption in under eye area. I was expecting it to work amazing for me but sadly it did not! This is what the product details are: What it is: A hydrating, antioxidant-rich daily eye serum that addresses dark circles and puffiness, leaving skin with a refreshed and firmer appearance. Skin Type: Normal, Dry, Combination, and Oily Skincare Concerns: Dark circles, Puffiness, Dryness Formulation: Serum Highlighted Ingredients: - Horse Chestnut, Mountain Ash Bud, and Witch Hazel: Address dark circles and puffiness. - Chamomile, Arnica, and Cornflower: Help soothe the delicate eye area. - Hyaluronic Acid: Helps to promote long-lasting hydration. 🍁 My Experience: I experienced it's great for people with puffiness and under eye bags. It slightly flattened my under eye area but for my major concerns like dark circles and fines lines this isn't working as effectively as my other favourite eye creams do. This certainly doesn't mean it won't help my concerns in the long run or it may brighten my under eye areas slightly if I use it consistently. With my other eye creams such as Nuria eye cream and The Ordinary Caffeine solution I see difference in my dark circles in just little than a week but I gave this more time than that to see if it works for my specific concerns and it did not do well. I will post an update of 5-6 weeks of use!

Serious bag banishment!!
Thanks so much to @cherie for this leaderboard prize! I’ve used it every day since I got it! Thank you all for your support 🧡 🧡 Indie Lee I-waken 👁 serum. A hydrating, antioxidant-rich daily eye serum that addresses dark circles and puffiness, leaving skin with a refreshed and firmer appearance. Includes Horse Chestnut, Mountain Ash Bud, and Witch Hazel: Address dark circles and puffiness. - Chamomile, Arnica, and Cornflower: Help soothe the delicate eye area. - Hyaluronic Acid: Helps to promote long-lasting hydration. 🧡 I adore this eye serum so much! The texture is almost a gel which I love in my skincare. I apply this in the am when I don’t get much sleep and it goes a long way to make it look like I did. It reduces the puffiness pretty quickly and better than other eye products I’ve tried. If you have bags like me, give this a try!! I can tell you this works SO much better than The Ordinary caffeine serum for my bags. 🧡 $33.60 for .05 fl oz. & you really only need a tiny amount for this to work so it will last you! If you have tried The Ordinary and it didn’t work, trade it out for this! You can also keep this in the fridge for a cooling effect for your eyes but it’s not necessary 🧡

It’s been almost three weeks and I’ve finished (almost) all of the @indie_lee discovery kit products pictured!⠀ ⠀ ✨Brightening Cleanser:⠀ What it is: an antioxidant and plant extract cleanser, which protects, and enhances the skin.⠀ ⠀ 🌿My thoughts: I’m not the biggest fan of foaming cleaners but this one wasn’t half bad! It smells faintly of grapefruit, and it’s a nice kick of freshness in the morning. I feel like it leaves my skin a little tight but that’s when the next product comes in hand.⠀ ⠀ 🦋Would I repurchase? Most likely not, I prefer milky and jelly cleaners as my face is sensitive. ⠀ ⠀ ✨CoQ-10 Toner:⠀ What it is: an alcohol-free toner that hydrates and soothes with coenzyme Q10 and hyaluronic acid.⠀ ⠀ 🌿My thoughts: okay I know that everyone and their mother raves about this and swears by it, but honestly I don’t see it as that much of an amazing toner. I do like to use it after washing my face as I feel like it helps with the tightness as well as I love the milk-like formula. I see why you would use it, but I feel like it’s an extra “treat yourself” step, something you would be fine with skipping. ⠀ ⠀ 🦋Would I repurchase? Ummm... maybe? Honestly I am not sure. I have few other toners and essences I want to try but once I run out, I do see a possibility of coming back to this toner.⠀ ⠀ ✨Squalene facial oil:⠀ What it is: A noncomedogenic, lightweight face oil made of 100 percent pure, olive-derived squalane.⠀ ⠀ 🌿My thoughts: I am so in between love and indifference for this product. My face goes between being super dry and being super oily. Whenever it needs an extra kick, especially at night, this is heavenly. But if I don’t time the usage right, it makes me feel so oily and bleh. I think this is perfect to use in the middle of the winter, and not so much for quarantine time.⠀ ⠀ 🦋Would I repurchase? Honestly, ehh.. maybe next year. I like the product but it takes sooo long to use it up. However, next winter, I feel like this will be a miracle for my dry skin. I think I have to play around with this product a little bit more. ⠀ INDIE LEE - INDIE LEE Discovery Kit

Kiss me.. under the milky twilight
INDIE LEE - INDIE LEE Discovery Kit Aaaand we are back to work! Anyone minds if I sleep in? I’m a huge fan of trying out mini products as I have a hard time commuting to full size. Plus this way I have the opportunity to try more products. I also can’t deny that tint glass bottles are absolutely adorable. The indie_lee kit was on my wishlist for a long time because I kept hearing reviews about their CoQ-10 Toner. I’ve been using these products for about a month so I wouldn’t say this is an in-depth review. It’s more of a check in. The brightening cleanser can be used as a makeup remover, and a mask. Its rich in potent antioxidants and plant extracts. I’ve been using it solely in the morning and it’s been treating my fave fairly nice. I’m not a big fan of cleaners that foam up but this doesn’t leave a film on my face. The toner hydrates, soothes, and protects all skin types with antioxidant coenzyme Q10 and hyaluronic acid. I’m pretty sure everyone and their mother is obsessed with this. As for me, I think I need to use it more as I’m not getting any results. I also am kind of indifferent about toners sooo... The Squalene oil is a noncomedogenic, lightweight face oil made of 100 percent pure, olive-derived squalane. Squalene balances oil production, providing just enough moisture to keep the skin clear and healthy. This product is hard to get used to for me, but I do enjoy the extra glow it gives me. I just gotta find a better moisturizer to pair it with. INDIE LEE - CoQ-10 Toner INDIE LEE - Brightening Cleanser INDIE LEE - Squalane Facial Oil

I wanted to share some of my very favorite products by the amazing, indie_lee! ♥️ It’s no secret at all that the her Squalane Oil is my absolute favorite.. this is my second bottle and it’s something I’ll always repurchase! I’ve recommended it to so many of my friends and every single one has fallen in love as well!! My recent love is the Stem Cell Serum which I am DYING to get a full size of bc this makes my skin feel so plump and hydrated.. I’ve been savoring each drop bc my skin has been loving it! It’s formulated with alpine rose, bamboo extract, hyaluronic acid, and more. The I-Waken Eye Serum is so great as well because it contains caffeine among other ingredients that soothe and help depuff the under eye area! I love the packaging of all her products and how she offers minis which are amazing for travel! I really want to try the Swiss Apple Serum next but the Stem Cell Serum is super high on my wishlist! 🙌🏽 I hope you all try their wonderful products bc not only is the founder strong and amazing, her products really have been so good to my skin! 🥰

I wanted to share my thoughts on the lovely Stem Cell Serum that one of my favorite brands, indie lee! I tried the mini before I received the full size and I can’t say enough good things about it. Like seriously, the only “con” is that it’s pricey ($135.. I know😭) but the ingredients are wonderful! It’s formulated with Echinacea Stem Cells that improve the skins firmness, tone, and texture as well as Bamboo extract (helps soothe skin, improve elasticity), Alpine rose (rich in antioxidants and protects from environmental stressors.. SO important), and of course, hyaluronic acid! All in all, I think it’s a wonderful serum, and it’s made my dry skin feel SO plump and rejuvenated each time I use it. I really think that if you’re looking to splurge, it’s a great option at some point! I’m a devoted fan of her squalane oil and this is just another hit to add to the list! 🙌🏽

my go to serums 🤩🌞
hey sunshine’s !! INDIE LEE - Daily Skin Nutrition is a new serum that I won in a giveaway on Cherie! thank you so much @cheriefor this giveaway 🥺 I have only been using it for a few days so far but I am loving it! I use this one just in morning and some of the great ingredients in it are squalane, vitamin e, hyaluronic acid, rosehip seed oil and avocado oil 🤩 it gives me such a nice glow in the morning, which is when we most need it right? haha. since I haven’t been using it for too long, I can’t say that it has evened my skin tone, but I will definitely let you all know in the future. The Ordinary - 100% Organic Cold Pressed Rose Hip Seed Oil ultimate hydration, improve fine lines and wrinkles, brighten and protect the skin and can treat breakouts. i love this product !!! it is definitely going to be one that I will be repurchasing over and over again. I use this just at night as it is a heavier oil so I let it soak into my skin overnight for optimal results. I think this product is great for the colder weather that will be coming to protect the skins barrier and to keep it looking hydrated and glowing ! for me, my skin gets so dull and dry in the winter months. The Ordinary - 100% Plant-Derived Squalane you will get ultimate hydration with this product !! it had a clear and very light consistency that absorbs fast into the skin and is another great product for the colder months ! squalane has anti inflammatory properties to reduce redness and can improve the skin from the bottom !! this is just a really nice serum to have, especially if you have dry skin.

Super nice gel cleanser
I’ve heard good things about this brand and I can attest to the fact that this face wash is actually pretty gentle on your face. I use this as a morning cleanser and for days that I just need to wash away the days dirt and gunk. And it does the job. Preferably I like to use cleansers that don’t foam up but this one actually doesn’t feel like I’m stripping my face. It leaves my skin feeling nice and plump after rinsing and drying. It also feels soothing and removes impurities plus takes away the greasy feeling on your face after sweating. So I really recommend it as a daily wash. It’s not much for removing makeup by itself, you’d have to double cleanse. INDIE LEE - Purifying Face Wash has ingredients for hydrating, soothing effects, brightening, fungal acne, and antioxidants. So I would have to use it longer to see any real effects on my face. However, I don’t think I will be re-purchasing this due to the price. There are cheaper options out there in bigger bottles and are just as effective. I think it’s just one of those “not what you need but just nice to have” kind of product. Looks pretty on your shelf too ;)

Products for acne prone skin!
🌻My skin type/concerns- I have very dry skin in the winter and a normal skin type during the summer! Occasionally I will get bad acne throughout the year, I also have bad redness and hyperpigmentation, and pores! 🌻this review is for products I have tried to reduce my acne! ✅worked ❌didn’t work 🌻Product list: ✅Murad acne cleanser- I discovered this cleanser about 8 months ago and fell in love! I love using this cleanser in the morning and night because it does a great job at clearing my acne and getting rid of my hyperpigmentation! it is amazing at reducing the acne I get on my skin! I see a huge difference from before and after I use this! It’s amazing ingredients is everything that helps with my acne! ✅drunk elephant c firma serum- I discovered this serum from a friend recommending this to me after trying it and telling me how much it helped clear her acne prone skin ! I have been using this for about 6 months! I always use this at night and morning because I know when I wake up my acne looks super reduced and my skin is very soothed for when I start the day! I always use this first in my skin care routine! The amazing ingredients help so much with my acne! ✅Kate Somerville exfoliating treatment- I saw this all over social media when it came out, and when I saw some reviews for it I knew it would be perfect for my skin and I immediately bought it! I have been using this for about 6 months! I also only use this at night and whenever I use it before bed I see the biggest difference in my acne when I wake up! I use this right after I cleanse my face! The very thick consistency of this is super helpful before going to bed because I know I will wake up with super moisturized skin and my acne will be gone! ❌indie lee cleanser- I found this cleanser from a family member recommending it to me, and saying how much it helped with her acne! I saw the pricy price tag but I still went for it! I used it for a couple months of the summer, and it was perfect for my summer skin type! This has not really helped my acne, it is a great product for my dry skin, but it did not help my acne! I saw no difference when I used this at night and when I would wake up nothing changed! I used this right before using toner!Murad - Clarifying Cleanser DRUNK ELEPHANT - C-Firma Vitamin C Day Serum Kate Somerville - ExfoliKate Intensive Exfoliating Treatment INDIE LEE - Purifying Face Wash

Indie’s Clarity Kit* (Purifying Face Wash, CoQ-10 Toner and Active Oil-Free Moisturizer). . ❤️Purifying Face Wash - Yes! Finally another cleanser I can get behind. Beautiful lather, non-drying, cleans well, minimal (but lovely) scent. I’m also curious to try the brightening version but absolutely a re-purchase for me! . 🧡CoQ-10 Toner - Of all the products, this was the one I was most excited to try. I’ve heard nothing but rave reviews and it did not disappoint! The hero ingredient is CoQ-10 and the colour indicates a good amount of it is actually in this product. I’ll be doing a full ingredient breakdown in a future post but, overall, the toner is hydrating, refreshing and non-irritating. 100% another repurchase! . 💛Active Oil-Free Moisturizer - I love my oils, so I wasn’t quite sure how I would feel about a moisturizer that was “oil-free”. Well, I was pleasantly surprised. The cream was hydrating, perfectly complimented the other products in the set and left my skin plump and bouncy. It does contain Caprylic/Capric Triglyceride, which is derived from Coconut Oil, but that’s just fine with me. A pea sized amount was enough for my entire face and it left behind a thin, comfortable, protective film that layered well under sunscreen. . Final thoughts…. Not only do I love the products themselves but I have a lot of respect for the brand (and it’s founder) as a whole. I love the commitment to legitimately clean formulations (read: phenoxyethanol-free) with reasonable concentrations of advertised actives. Indie Lee is a brand I can get behind; down to Earth, great products!

Some current items I have in r
Some current items I have in rotation. I have the old sundayriley Ceramic Slip Cleanser that I am using before I try the new one and so far loving it!! It’s got a weird smell, but it cleans so well without drying it out, which I thought it would as it’s got clay in it. The fresh Rose Deep Hydration Toner smells devine! Have just used this once so can’t say too much. indie lee Squalane Oil is one of the best Olive derived squalane oils I have used, it sinks in so well. I like using a plain oil like squalane when skin is finicky. One product that I am really living with the turn of the weather is the firstaidbeauty Ultra repair cream! I got a small size to try out and I reach for it so much! I used it on my arms for my tattoo healing sometimes. Need to get a big version soon!

As you all know, Indie Lee’s toner is my HG toner. That’s it that’s all. It made me fully trust in the brand. “Echinacea and apple stem cells boost skin firmness. Bamboo extract and hyaluronic acid keeps skin hydrated. Antioxidant-rich alpine rose defends skin against pollution and other environmental aggressors” My thoughts. Love at first dropper. The texture of this serum is incredible. At first it’s so thick & vicious in texture, but as soon as it touches your skin it literally melts & spreads in the most amazing way. You only need the tiniest drop of this odourless serum & it covers my whole face & neck. It gives an instant plump to my skin which took me aback the first few uses. I’ve been taking this up to my eyes and layering my eye cream on top of it & im loving the results.

One of my favorite toners. It really helps balance my skin after cleansing and I love the option of having a spray on my toners. I do wish it were a bit more hydrating.

BATTLE OF THE CLEANSERS
BATTLE OF THE CLEANSERS
So obviously by the empty bottle, you get tell that I love YOUTH TO THE PEOPLE - Superfood Antioxidant Cleanser It doesn’t leave my skin feeling tight, it’s full of good ingredients, and it’s in sustainable glass packaging. I’m obsessed. Unfortunately, due to COVID-19, I have temporarily lost all of my freelance work and am unable to afford to buy a refill. LUCKILY, I found out that I had some Ulta credit I could cash in, so I decided to purchase these other two cleansers to see if either of them can stand against my all time favorite. I’m excited to start testing them out, I’ll be back in two weeks with my update! COSRX - Low PH Good Morning Gel Cleanser INDIE LEE - Brightening Cleanser
