My anti-aging serum choice — Abeille Royale youth watery oil👍
For anti-aging, I truly believe hydration is crucial. Hydration is something that was embedded at a very early age. I remember my very first moisturizer was the Clinique Dramatically Different Moisturizing Lotion; I was 14 at the time. I’ve had pretty decent skin; I have to give my mom credit for that. I also believe in good retinol and water; although I don’t drink enough. GUERLAIN - Abeille Royale Youth Watery Anti-Aging Oil According to Guerlain, the Abeille Royale Youth Watery Oil is a revolutionary formula that combines the power of a serum, the richness of an oil, and the freshness of a lotion. Replenishing micro-drops of oil are released at the very last minute to leave your complexion looking radiant. Your skin appears instantly smoother, plumper, and revitalized. It offers the skin all the power of Guerlain-exclusive ingredients Ouessant black bee honey, highly concentrated in this balm, and royal jelly, which work together to combat visible and future signs of aging. The Ouessant Honey offers essential ingredients to revitalize the skin. It also contains Guerlain Exclusive Royal Jelly. This Royal Jelly is rich in exceptional nutrients and is a natural source of carbohydrates, proteins, lipids, and vitamins. It is produced in a protected environment and offers exceptional benefits for the skin. At first impression, I found the fragrance a bit off-putting. Don’t get me wrong; it smells beautiful! The scent was created by famous perfumer Thierry Wasser, and described as “sunshine nectar with notes of honey, fresh and airy fragrances.” I want to put it all over my body! But initially, I felt that I probably shouldn’t be putting something that smells this good on my face. I got over that quickly. I’m not sensitive to fragrance, and I do believe in the power of scent. I feel if a product smells amazing it just makes the experience more enjoyable. However, if you are sensitive to fragrance, you will not enjoy this face oil. The oil is not watery as the name describes, it feels rather rich to me which I don’t mind. Guerlain recommends that you press the oil into the skin and massage upwards. There’s a tutorial you can watch if you’re interested. I do the massage in the evening, but not in the mornings when I’m in a hurry. I don’t use oil every day: it’s expensive, and I don’t feel I need it every day. After I use it my skin feels a little tacky; but not uncomfortable or greasy. Immediately my skin feels supple and soft. It also works well under makeup, and I have mixed it with foundation and liked the results. Overall, I enjoy the Abeille Royale Youth Watery Oil, and I’m happy with the purchase. My skin looks brighter and toned. And I feel my skin has been plumper and smoother since using it. However, I feel that if you’re in your twenties, you don’t need this product. I think it’s better suited for people in their late thirties or older. Would I repurchase it? Yes, it’s lovely, and I recommend it.
$145😔VS.$32🤫 This is an excellent product to save your money💰💰💰
The essence is a product that concentrates the most valuable and effective components. So the essence is the most important step in the skincare process. But the problem comes, the essence is usually very expensive, it's very stressful for people who don't have a budget. If you have some trouble, follow me! My faith is that buy the right products, not the expensive ones. And Glamourflage Advanced Firming Royal Essence can be your right one!Glamourflage - Advanced Firming Royal Jelly Repair Essence This essence contains a royal jelly component, the same ingredient of Guerlain Abeille Royale Youth Watery Oil.GUERLAIN - Abeille Royale Youth Watery Anti-Aging Oil Royal jelly is a perfect natural source of carbohydrates, proteins, lipids, and vitamins to nurture skin. Besides, it also adds Proteoglycan IPC, Myrothamnus Flabellifolia Stem Extract, etc. The first thing I noticed was the cute packaging looks beautiful on my vanity. The Gold Foil in it is awesome! It instantly creates a sense of luxe, which I think is nicer than the little gold beads Guerlain oil. The fragrance is quite strong and it lingers. As for the texture. Glamourflage essence is very thin, liquid like water, and does not feel oily and felt so light on my skin. When I put in my hand and rub it, it's absorbed very quickly. It is light, so you won’t end up with a thin film after layering. Then it comes to the effects, I have super dry skin and because of staying up late, my skin is dull and lifeless. After using this essence, my skin is absolutely well hydrated, plumper, and even. Applied in the morning and I feel so refreshed and leave my skin looking with a glow. I love adding this product to my routine. Just a side note, Guerlain oil contains alcohol, if you have sensitive skin like me, do not hesitate to turn to Glamourflage, which is free of stimulants!
I have been absolutely obsessed with the oribe nourishing oil! It disappears almost instantly and is so lightweight. I’m currently also testing the guerlain l’essential foundation and let me tell you.. it’s expensive but man am I impressed so far. Thankfully I found a near perfect shade match (shocker!) in 35N and I’ll have more thoughts on it for you as I test it with different primers! Last but not least I am really loving the new shiseido synchro skin concealer, it’s full coverage yet blendable and moves with your skin! Very impressed, but not surprised bc Japanese beauty brands usually really know their stuff! 😍👏🏽

Let the jelly do the thing • fall skincare
GUERLAIN - Abeille Royale Double R Serum Guerlain Double R Renew and Repair Serum feels amazing on the skin. I have combination dry skin. The honey helps a lot with its hydration and natural glow. The product smells a little too fragranced to me but fortunately my skin didn’t have any irritation. The serum is also effective in fighting again fine lines and loose skin. I’m happy with it overall. Love this rich formula for fall season. Key ingredients: Royal jelly - the precious substance produced by bees Ouessant honey - honey produced in Ouessant a UNESCO Biosphere reserve by Black bees with ultimate purity. Both ingredients are rich in animo acid, protein, vitamins and more! How to use: I apply the serum as a regular serum. It feels lightweight on the skin but it’s actually richer than my other serum products so I would only use toner before the serum and a layer of gel cream without oil. Use in the morning and night. I see improvement in loose skin and fine lines in about four weeks!
Believe the HYPE? No! I found my personalized skincare combo😜😜
I have combination-dry skin and have accidentally bought a lot of products I dislike. SK-II - Facial Treatment Essence (Pitera Essence) turned my combination-dry skin into sensitive, peeling skin with easily visible blood vessel dilation while the SK-II - R.N.A. Power Radical New Age Cream and the ESTĒE LAUDER - Advanced Night Repair Synchronized Multi-Recovery Complex increased my bumps, so I have been really careful to purchase the smallest size of these products to try them out. Finally, I found this perfect combination for dry skin. LA MER - The Treatment Lotion After cleansing, squeeze 3 drops and gently pat it on your face. It's non-greasy and it effectively reduces blood vessel dilation. GUERLAIN - Abeille Royale Youth Watery Anti-Aging Oiland GUERLAIN - Abeille Royale Double R Serum These two are definitely the perfect combination! Normally, I shake the Youth Watery Oil before use, then rub three drops of it between my palms until it's warm, then gently pat and massage it onto my face. After that, I apply the Renew and Repair Serum with the same steps, and it doesn't become pasty. This combination focuses on minimizing the appearance of pores. It doesn't feel oily on your nose and chin the next day as it effectively adjusts the skin's water-oil balance. It's also great in reducing blood vessel dilation and leaves the skin very supple. sisley - Ecological Compound People has very polarized opinions regarding this facial cream. I've experienced bumps after using it until I found a new way to use it. I'll squeeze one pump onto my palm, then rub it between my palms until it's warm and emulsified, then massage it onto my face until fully absorbed. Don't apply it onto your face directly after pumping it out. You have to wait until it's fully absorbed before proceeding to the next step. If you have combination-dry or sensitive skin with visible blood vessels and you want to maintain your skin stability, then you must try out this combination! You can see the difference in just a month!😍😍

I tried 6 products and got flawless base makeup!
My skin is pretty dry and fair, luckily, I don’t have any concern like wrinkles, pimples or freckles. So, normally I choose light coverage foundation, but in summer I would like to use some medium coverage like the ESTĒE LAUDER - Double Wear Stay-in-Place Foundation, it lasts longer and it’s water-proof, if you sweat in summer your make-up canl keep still on your face. Except that, I will introduce some tips about how to create a flawless look. It’s important to do a good job on pre-makeup if you wanna make your make-up last longer and flawless. You can apply some lotion, cream or even a mask. I usually wear a mask before I start my make-up, the mask I choose is from Eaoron. It contains hyaluronic acid and it keeps your skin hydrated. After mask, you can put on some lotion or cream as a moisturizer, then apply a primer. The primer I choose is GUERLAIN - L'Or 24K Gold Radiance and Hydrating Primer. It not only can provide hydration on your skin, but also it contains real gold flakes, giving my skin divine look. After primer your skin will become smooth and ready for a long-lasting make-up. Before apply on foundation, I will add some oil mixed with liquid foundation, you can skip this step if you don’t have dry skin. The oil I choose is PETER THOMAS ROTH - Oiless Oil 100% Purified Squalane. After that I will use a damp beauty blender to apply it on my face. You will find your base make-up is already looking good, but if you wanna it last longer, you’d better to apply a setting powder, like the one I use---GIVENCHY - Prisme Libre Loose Powder, it also makes your skin a little bit shimmer. If you are easily getting sweaty, you can carry a pressed powder with youBOBBI BROWN - BOBBI BROQN Sheer Finish Pressed Setting Powder, you can use it when you feel your base make-up gets flawed.
If You Ever Want To Buy These Products, Think Twice, Trust Me👉👉
have combo dry skin during spring and summer, and combo oil skin during fall and winter. I have a little bit acne. My biggest skincare concern is aging. After using so many skincare products in my life, I have listed a couple of my favorite products of all-time, and some products I will never ever use again. This is the second part of this long list, these are the products I regret so much for buying. 😫😫😫 I suggest y'all to think twice if you before your make the decision. LANCÔME - Advanced Génifique Yeux Light-Pearl Eye Illuminator Youth Activating Concentrate It claims that it can reduce wrinkles and dark circles. But I don't really see any effect after using it for a while. I think you can definitely find better eye serums at this price level. BIOSSANCE - Squalane + Vitamin C Rose Oil This is too oily for me. It does help reducing acne scars. But when I use it with face cream, I get pimples. LA MER - LA MER The Concentrate I expect it to help my acne scars to recover quickly. However, I can't see any effects. This is definitely not worth the price. Don't buy it! My experience with it was awful. The design is also bad. When you almost used up this bottle, it is extremely hard to get the last few drops out. SK-II - Facial Treatment Essence (Pitera Essence) My skin feels so dry after using it. I think it is more suitable for people with very oily skin. My face got so dry during the day for three days in a row after using it. I personally like more moisturizing products. LA MER - LA MER Moisturizing Cream This face cream needs to be emulsified before you use it. This extra step is quite complex. I didn't really see the "magic power", which was described by so many bloggers. I just think this is so oily and greasy. It cannot be absorbed and I get a bunch of pimples. GUERLAIN - L'Or 24K Gold Radiance and Hydrating Primer This primer works so poorly. A good sunscreen probably has a better effect than this one. It is very light, can be absorbed easily. But it feels more like a serum than a primer. It is also not moisturizing enough for me. So it does not lay a good foundation for my later makeup routine. URBAN DECAY - All Nighter Long-Lasting Makeup Setting Spray I only use it when my foundation is too heavy, or I have used too much setting power. I think setting power just works better than setting spray. So it is not useful for me at all. That's all I have. I hope this is helpful to you. Have you ever bought something that is useless? 👎 Share your story with me! I love to hear from y'all.
I finally caved & created my own Guerlain Rouge G. I love that you can customize your own now. I picked N. 02 Light Beige and the Rosy Nude case. The Guerlain Rouge G has such a classy luxurious feel and I love the creamy satin finish. Definitely a fair amount of pigment and longevity. Light Beige is definitely more of a deeper pink nude, it’s not really pale at all

Pink Pearls VS. Pure Gold, Guess Who Wins?
I bought the GUERLAIN - Météorites Primer Perfecting Pearlsfirst and it's so stunning! Using 2 pumps each time lasted me around 2 to 3 months. The gel turns into water after it's spread out, and its fine shimmers provide my skin with a translucent glow! It has a highlighter effect. However, most of its ingredients aim at moisturizing and nourishing, and not much else, so it's more suitable for youthful skin. The GUERLAIN - L'Or Radiance Concentrate with Pure Gold has a more watery texture, and it spreads and sets on my skin easily. I don't really see the gold after it's dissolved, so it has no highlighter effect. It's said to contain anti-aging and nourishing ingredients, so it's more suitable for mature skin. You can choose the pink pearl primer if you're looking for a shimmery foundation, or you can choose the pure gold primer if you're looking for an anti-aging and natural foundation.
Guerlain's Primer Awards
These three primers are all Guerlain's signature products. Each has its own strengths in shine-control and hydrating effects to provide for different needs. I have a oil-combo skin. GUERLAIN - Météorites Primer Perfecting Pearls-pink pearl Guerlain Meteorites Perles Light-Perfecting Primer (White Booster)-white pearl GUERLAIN - L'Or Radiance Concentrate with Pure Gold- pure gold The pink pearl primer is a very suitable primer for combination-oily skin. It's shine-free, moisturizing, and non-greasy. The white pearl primer is for summer use. It's the best in terms of shine control. But it's not as moisturizing as the pink pearl primer. You also have to wear another layer of sunscreen as this white pearl primer doesn't provide UV protection. The pure gold primer is a moisturizing product. It's suitable for combination-oily skin as it's moisturizing, refreshing, absorbed easily, and it feels airy-light on the skin. After using it, my skin no longer peels or gets as oily as it used to. Simply put, for shine control: White Pearls Primer > Pink Pearls Primer > Pure Gold Primer for moisturizing: Pure Gold Primer > Pink Pearls Primer > White Pearls Primer

My P.M Routine 👇🏻
I am combination dry skin, moisturizing has been set in the chief need. When I close to 30 years old, except moisturizing product, anti-aging products are also necessary. P.M sisley - BLACK ROSE CREAM MASK SHISEIDO - Eudermine Revitalizing Essence sisley - Ecological Compound The biggest difference between A.M and P.M is using the Sisley Black Rose Cream Mask. This mask features anti-aging and moisturizing. I use it for 3 times a week. The texture is cream and presents the light pink color. It gives off a smell of rose, very exclusive flavour. After cleaning up, to apply a thick layer on your skin, and wait for more than ten or twenty minutes to wash off. After washing off, you can obviously feel that your skin is smooth and brighten. It can clean the pores and make your skin glow. After cleaning the mask completely, I am going to apply Shiseido Eudermine. I have bought-back this toner for many times. If you are dry skin, I recommend you to go to buy it quickly! It can keep your skin in a newly-born condition! Collocation with Sisley ecological compound，the function of anti-aging and moisturizing are all covered by this routine. A.M SHISEIDO - Eudermine Revitalizing Essence GUERLAIN - Bee Glow Youth Moisturizer In the daytime, in addition to not applying Sisley black rose cream mask, I will replace Sisley Ecological Compound with Guerlain abeille royale youth watery oil, which is more hydrated than the previous one from my experience. Only ensure that the skin is moist enough, the foundation and subsequent cosmetics can help you skin present the best condition. Sisley Ecological Compound is for all skin types, and the Guerlain abeille royale youth watery oil is more suitable for dry skin people! In addition to season change, I will change my routine. Any other periods I have been using this routine for over three years.
Does the glycerin rly work on ur skin?
I am desert dry skin in autumn and winter, no ingredients has more important than glycerin. If a product has glycerin in the top 3 of the ingredient list, I would definitely like to put it in my pocket. Kiehls ultra facial cream and Guerlain abeille royale youth watery oil are two of my favorite products that their main ingredients contain glycerol. I have did a lot researches before buying Guerlain and read many negative comments. Many people think it is low cost performance, the main ingredients of this anti-aging oil is water and glycerol. The active ingredients are only vitamin E and royal jelly. It’s not worth the price of $95 for 30ml. however, some people around me still recommended it to me. So I decided to buy one to try. For now, I have been using the second bottle. I have to say it has ranked no.1 in my hydrating product list. Although the texture is oil, you do not feel greasy. On the contrary, using it can make you feel fresh. Every time when I use it, I totally enjoy in it. GUERLAIN - Bee Glow Youth Moisturizer Kiehls ultra facial cream, the price is $18, 28ml and is composed of glycerol and squalane. No other moisturizing essence,only these two ingredients. Kiehls also uses natural plant oils, such as avocado oil, olive oil, almond oil to replace some classic moisturizing ingredients. It’s understandable that Kiehls advocates the natural way to enhance skin. Among these two moisturizing ingredients, glycerol ranks first. This makes this cream more hydrating. It has become an indispensable product for me in winter. Kiehl's - Ultra Facial Cream However, both of products have disadvantages. For Guerlain, if you don’t have such a big need for moisturizing, you don’t need to by this product. The high price performs at the effect of anti-aging, but the performance at this filed is very general. Only when I use it for an ordinary moisturizer, the effect can be satisfied. So after using this oil, I still use the essence again. And for Kiehls, although the capacity of 28ml is similar to thre guerlain, it is not durable. I ran out of one in a month and half. Whether it's Kiehls or Guerlain, I will buy back. Especially in winter, both products are essential. Except Kiehls and Guerlain, Lancome tonique confort, Lancome hydra zen, Fresh rose face mask are all products contain lots of glycerol that I have used. This ingredient can ensure your face present more smooth and hydrating.
My Go-To Bronzer for...
MINIMAL – MAC - Mineralize Skinfinish Natural Face Powder Whenever I do a natural look, usually for work or just doing errands, I reach for the MAC Mineralize Skin Finish in Dark. I first heard about this years ago on YouTube and was intrigued by the concept of using a “foundation” powder as bronzer. But I immediately loved how it looked and have been hooked ever since. This is a very sheer formula, so it is perfect for a natural look because it is almost impossible to over-do it. It also has a pretty neutral tone, meaning it won’t make you look super sun kissed, but it isn’t cool toned like a contour powder either. At $36, I think this powder is worth it because it will last forever. I give it a 4/5 stars. NATURAL – MAKE UP FOR EVER - Pro Bronze Fusion Bronzer When I want a bronzer that is going to melt into my skin and look like I have a glow from within, I go for the Pro Bronze Fusion Bronzer. It has a unique gel-powder formula that seamlessly blends and melts into the skin, giving your skin a natural touchable bronze glow. This formulation is matte, but not flat, which further contributes to that natural finish. I often wear this bronzer over only a primer to achieve perfect summery bronzed skin. I have mine in shade 20M, which is a touch too dark + warm for me, but I just apply it lightly and it works really well. I can’t recommend this bronzer enough. I give it 5/5 stars! It is $36 at Sephora. SPECIAL OCCASION – GUERLAIN - Terracotta Sunkissed Natural Finish Bronzing Powder When I want to feel glam – I go for the showstopper that is Guerlain Terracotta Bronzer. This bronzer has a very faint shimmer which makes it ideal for nighttime and special events. I have mine in shade 02 Natural Blondes, which works really well for me, though it does run pretty warm, so I have to use a light touch, unless I am going full glam which is pretty rare these days. The actual product itself is what makes for the glam moment, from the compact to the scent, everything screams luxury and it really makes me feel like a princess. I absolutely love this bronzer as well, but wish it was a bit less pricey. I give it 4/5 stars. It is $54 at Sephora.
My Must-have Eye Makeup Products 👀
These are the eye products that I've been using for a very long time and I'm quite sure I will repurchase them. 😉 So here we go! MAKE UP FOR EVR Step 1 Eye & Lip Primer MAKE UP FOR EVER - Step 1 Skin Equalizer Eye & Lip Primer I quite like this product. It's not as sticky as the Urban Decay eye contour primer. This one is relatively moist and it doesn't gather in the crease of my eye. Guerlain CILS D'ENFER Mascara (Shade: 01 Black) GUERLAIN - Maxi Lash Volumizing & Curling Mascara This creates natural-looking lashes, and can be easily removed without smearing. It's more of a liquid consistency than most mascaras, so I like it a lot because dry mascara clumps easily. Clé de Peau Beauté Skin Key Aurora Flow Color Eyeshadow (Shade: 310) clé de peau BEAUTÉ - Eye Color Quad Among the expensive eye shadows, Clé de Peau Beauté is neither outstanding in its packaging nor its quality. The powder flies everywhere, the texture is not creamy enough and the color doesn't pop. However, I do like its palette, so I still tend to use it often.

My favorite perfume!
The Guerlain La Petite Robe Noire Eau Faîche is my favorite fragrance because it is fresh and sexy. I am terrible at describing scents but this definitely is a day time spring time scent. I’m happy wearing it all year because spring is my favorite season haha. It has a great blend of scents with pistachio, bergamot, lemon, rose, and jasmine. I always spray it on when I want to feel feminine and put together. GUERLAIN - Women's La Petite Robe Noire Ma Robe Petales Eau Fraiche
GUERLAIN-Women's La Petite Robe Noire Ma Robe Petales Eau Fraiche
I have combination-oily skin and I've used these four foundations in winter. Fenty Beauty Foundation Shade 120 FENTY BEAUTY - Pro Filt'r Hydrating Longwear Foundation Star rating: ⭐️⭐️ It smells good and is very thin, but it does nothing for concealing.👎 Givenchy Blurring Foundation Balm GIVENCHY - Teint Couture Blurring Foundation Balm Broad Spectrum 15 Star rating: ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ It conceals well and is very moisturizing. I highly recommended it.👍 Chantecaille FoundationCHANTECAILLE - Future Skin Gel Foundation Star rating: ⭐️ It's thin and moisturizing but is not particularly good at concealing, so it's more suitable for girls with dry skin and less blemishes.👎 Guerlain Powder Foundation GUERLAIN - Parure Gold Radiance Compact Powder Foundation Star rating: ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ It comes with a built-in mirror and puff, so it's perfect for touch-ups. The fine powder never caused any clumping. I highly recommended this product.👍
CHANTECAILLE-Future Skin Gel Foundation
Guerlain - Gift Set
Let me start by saying the smell of this stuff is unreal! It has a bit more of a mature scent to it so it’s quite different from other perfumes I have. It’s a floral scent so I’ll probably be wearing it more in the spring and summer! With notes of vanilla and lavender, I really am happy to add this to my collection. The packaging of Guerlain products just scream luxury and the scent matches this theme. The cream has the same smell and is quite thin. Spreading it around is made easy because of it’s lighter consistency! Once applied, I did not notice a sticky feeling on my skin (creams that leave that gross feeling are probably the worst thing ever 👀) GUERLAIN - Mon Eau de Parfum Gift Set
GUERLAIN-Mon Eau de Parfum Gift Set
GUERLAIN ABEILLE ROYALE Youth Watery Oil
GUERLAIN - Abeille Royale Bee Glow Youth Moisturizer is a youth watery oil that “replumps, smoothes, illuminates”. The product claims to have the power of a serum, the richness of an oil, and the freshness of a lotion which makes the skin appear instantly smoother, hydrated and plumper. I used this serum for a couple of days before I started experiencing breakout and my skin started becoming irritated the next morning so I had to discontinue using it. Even if I didn’t breakout, I likely still would’ve stopped using this product. It does make the skin hydrated and leaves a dewy (sticky?) sheen on the skin, however the serum stays on the face and leaves a sticky residue, that can be felt hours later.
GUERLAIN-Abeille Royale Bee Glow Youth Moisturizer
Went for some pink nude vibes while being touristy with my fam 💕 Caudalie’s Vinosource sorbet is one of my favorite creams to use under sunscreen – it’s lightweight and not greasy so absolutely perfect for the summer! After using sunscreen, I go in with a tiny bit of the guerlain Meteorites perfecting primer to give my skin a radiant and glowing finish. I don’t use primers as much but lately I’ve been loving using a tiny of primer to give a glow and just use concealer for the rest of my face. This leaves my skin feeling light and dewy all day long and also makes SPF reapplication so much better throughout the day. What are your favorite makeup bases?
