Clay Masks for oily and dry skin
Clay masks are great for helping treat blackheads and other irritates in your pores. Here are two options for two different skin types... HONEST - 3-in-1 Detox Mud Mask If you've noticed your skin gets too tight and dry after washing off clay masks, try this one. It has some great moisturizing ingredients that will help it from being too stripping to your skin ORIGINS - Clear Improvement Active Charcoal Mask to Clear Pores Great mask if you have oily or normal skin. My boyfriend who has blackheads and has an oily skin type uses this one and has noticed a difference in his blemishes. Charcoal can be an irritating ingredient, but luckily it is low on the ingredient list that it should be ok
🌙 CURRENT NIGHTTIME ROUTINE 🌙
My biggest skincare goals right now are focused on texture and hydration. I find it can be challenging to find a routine that is balanced in exfoliants and hydrating/ calming products. I’ve tried to rush my skin into results and it never works, and while I wouldn’t consider this my “holy grail routine” it’s something that’s working for me right now to target specifically texture, without drying out my skin. Here’s what I’m using, and why I love it! 1st cleanse: EARTH HARBOR - Sunshine Dew Antioxidant Cleansing Oil a heavenly smelling, effective oil cleanser that gently removes any sunscreen, makeup, or gunk from the day. 2nd Cleanse: CLARISMA - Cool Ocean Breeze Daily Cleanser this cleanser has really been the driver in retexuring my skin, the fruit enzymes in this cleanser are gentle exfoliants that didn’t give the dead skin cells on my face a chance! It really brightened and purified my skin. Serum: #Intoxicated Cosmetics - Snail Venom Serum[products]#[FiveStars] I just did a results post of this serum, and was amazed and how effective this serum was! Check out the post, you gotta see it to believe it 😉 Eye Cream: FARMACY - Cheer Up Brightening Vitamin C Eye Cream with Acerola Cherry I like this eye cream, nice texture and good brightening results! I’ve enjoyed using this eye cream but will probably go back to BIOSSANCE - Squalane + Marine Algae Eye Cream when this pot is finished. Treatment: HERBIVORE - Bakuchiol Anti-Aging Serum I love this natural retinol alternative! I’ve been nervous to integrate a retinol into my routine so I’ve been happy to use this alternative as a placeholder. Great hydrating and plumping qualities! Moisturizer: SATURDAY SKIN - Waterfall Glacier Water Cream love the bouncy gel texture of this cream. I like that it’s a little bit cooling upon application, calms my skin and makes me feel ready to catch some zzZZzzZ’s. If my skins feeling really dry I’ll add 1-2 drops of HERBIVORE - Emerald CBD + Adaptogens Deep Moisture Glow Oil to my moisturizers, this oil is amazing for hydrating, calming and reducing redness! And of course lip care! I always slather on a nice coating of SUMMER FRIDAYS - Lip Butter Balm before bed, smells amazing and gives my lips a nice drink! Helps me wake up with soft, hydrated lips. I also have been rotating these three masks and using each once per week! LATHER - Honey Moisture Mask with Propolis Extract : For deep hydration, and soothing dermatitis flare ups. HERBIVORE - Blue Tansy Resurfacing Clarity Mask : For resurfacing. I only use this for 8-10mins at a time right now to ensure I’m not over exfoliating or over-drying my skin ORIGINS - Clear Improvement Active Charcoal Mask to Clear Pores : For pores, T-zone only!

My FAVORITE Eye Cream... Thus Far 😁
ORIGINS - GinZing Refreshing Eye Cream to Brighten and Depuff The ad says... A refreshing eye cream that instantly helps brighten, visibly diminish the look of dark circles & depuff for a wide awake look. What It Does: Formulated with Panax Ginseng & Caffeine from Coffee, this energizing eye cream instantly brightens & helps restore radiance to tired looking eyes as you help massage away visible dark circles, under eye bags & puffiness. Formulated Without: Parabens Phthalates Sodium Lauryl Sulfate Propylene Glycol Mineral Oil DEA Petrolatum Paraffin Polyethylene beads Formaldehyde Animal Ingredients* *Except cruelty-free honey & beeswax I have been using this eye cream for many years and I will never be caught without it in my collection! I highly recommend you add this to your routine!
Genetic under Eye bags? What’s best!
If you’re like me, I’ve had puffy under eye area my whole life. In fact, there’s a hideous second grade photo of me that I’m sure sparked my insecurities. I have tried many products some help reduce the appearance of my under eye bags and some do absolutely NADA! Here are my top favorite products to decrease the appearance of my genetic eye puffiness. 1. belif - Eye Bomb Gwp In all my time searching. This has been the best find for me personally. When I use this cream I can definitely see that my eye puffiness went down. 2. ORIGINS - GinZing Refreshing Eye Cream to Brighten and Depuff This is my second favorite. I only put this second because I later learned that when paired with the Belif Eye Bomb, it’s perfect. This eye cream definitely brightens so you do not need much at all and keeps your under eye area brightened and lifted all day. 3. The Ordinary - Caffeine Solution 5% + EGCG My most recent discovery. This under eye solution does visibly depuff my under eye area. The consistency is not my favorite, I like thicker under eye creams. But I can say that it does make my eye area look more awakened. I read that this product takes awhile so...tbc I really hope this post helps someone like me with genetic under eye puffiness. Or atleast gives them some hope that there is a product or combination of products that helps them feel better about this unique issue.

Self Care = A Glass of Wine and A Good Face Mask
🌹After a long day of work and a night full of homework, I typically want to just call it a night and pass out. Tonight, I’m happy to report, I actually made it a point to perform a little self care. Yay me! 🍷ORIGINS - Retexturizing Mask with Rose Clay has been a staple in my routine for a few years now and I have never had anything work more effectively on my large (and I mean LARGE) pores. It also does an amazing job of gently exfoliating, and as soon as I wash this off my face my skin is soft and smooth. 🌹This mask utilizes a mix of two clays: kaolin clay, which cleanses and draws out impurities from the pores without irritating your skin, and montmorillonite which works well to absorbs excess oils. Its also packed full of essential oils like grapefruit peel oil that exfoliates the skin, and oils that help fight acne and bacteria like lavender, geranium, clary and anthemis oil. 🍷Since clay masks are intended to absorb excess oil, they are especially beneficial for those with oily and combination skin. I typically only use this on the oily parts of my face since clay masks tend to be a bit drying, but tonight since I was a bit naughty and fell asleep in my makeup TWO nights in a row (and broke out like crazy) I used it all over. 🌹Remember this mask pulls double duty (purifying and exfoliating) so make sure to adjust the rest of your routine for the week so that you are only exfoliating 2-3 times per week total (that’s including any other chemical or physical exfoliants that you are currently using.) 🗣Let me know which pore cleansing masks you love. I always like to try new products!
Skincare Strugglebus 🚌
So I had a good, simple routine for a long time and my skin was great! Then I moved and now my skin is so much different. I’ve been using tons of products trying to get results but I think I’ve been tormenting my skin and not giving any one product enough of a chance to do it’s thing so I’m trying to simplify. Right now my skin is dry, dehydrated, red and bumpy and my pores have gotten huge and black and icky and I’m really frustrated. I like to think that I’m knowledgeable about skincare but I still have a lot to learn. If you have any thoughts on my current products that would help the most! I have a lot and need a real routine. AM routine: Rinse my face with water. If I’m oily (which isn’t often) I will go in with THAYERS - Lavender Facial Toner but only on my t-zone, my cheeks can’t handle it. Neutrogena - Hydro Boost Gel-Cream VERSED - Daily Mineral Sunscreen Broad Spectrum a little greasy but non irritating and only if I go outside. PM: FARMACY - Green Clean Makeup Removing Cleansing Balm only if I wear makeup and spf For cleansers I’ve been using DRUNK ELEPHANT - Beste No. 9 Jelly Cleanser Deluxe Sample YOUTH TO THE PEOPLE - Superfood Antioxidant Cleanser Too Faced - Hangover Wash The Day Away Gentle Foaming Cleanser I also have a sample size of belif - Aqua Bomb Jelly CleanserI haven’t used and sometimes I will VERY GENTLY scrub with fresh - Sugar Strawberry Exfoliating Face Wash I have 3 different toners, I use fresh - Rose Deep Hydration Toner but it’s started to sting a bit with all the fragrance. I just purchased LANEIGE - Cream Skin Toner & Moisturizerand also GLOW RECIPE - Watermelon Glow PHA+BHA Pore-Tight Tonerwhich I want to incorporate instead. Maybe alternate? I loved FARMACY - Very Cherry Bright 15% Clean Vitamin C Serum with Acerola Cherry but I think it went bad bc it stings so much now. I use PEACH & LILY - Glass Skin Refining Serum every day but I might switch to DRUNK ELEPHANT - B-Hydra Intensive Hydration Serumthoughts? YOUTH TO THE PEOPLE - Adaptogen Deep Moisture Cream with Ashwagandha + Reishi never switching! other products I own: YOUTH TO THE PEOPLE - Superberry Hydrate + Glow Dream Mask LANEIGE - Cica Sleeping MaskGLOW RECIPE - Watermelon + AHA Glow Sleeping Mask ORIGINS - Retexturizing Mask with Rose Clay FIRST AID BEAUTY - Ultra Repair Cream I DEW CARE - Cake My Day Hydrating Sprinkle Wash-Off Mask DRUNK ELEPHANT - Protini Polypeptide Cream YOUTH TO THE PEOPLE - Superfood Air-Whip Moisture Cream

ORIGINS - GinZing Oil-Free Energy Boosting Gel Moisturizer I started using this moisturizer two months ago after being recommended it by a Sephora rep. It is creamy, hydrating, but the oil- free nature of it ensures you aren’t left feeling greasy. A little bit goes a long way. Ingredients are superb, including niacinamide which helps keep oil at bay. Has a fresh, natural orange scent.
Great gel moisturizer￼ for Combo- oily skin type
This is a great product. It is a little bit pricey. One container lasts me about 3 months. It’s absorbs into my skin very well. It is oil free and hydrates the dry patch in my skin. The smell is K, it is something to get use to. It makes my skin very smooth. Great oil-free get moisturizer for combo/oily skin type. I apply this in the Am and PM.

Purchase or Pass
ORIGINS - Checks and Balances Frothy Face Wash Really enjoyed using this product. It does contain essential oils and gives a nice herbal/spa scent. The texture is frothy like it says. It’s similar to the product from Too Cool for School. too cool for school - Egg Mousse Soap This product is the only other product that I’ve tried that I’d associate any type of similarity too. the cleanser becomes almost puffy on your skin. Both of these cleansers have been a dream to use and have never left my skin tight after application. Granted I only used the trial size, a little goes a long way, it took me a considerable amount of time to work through it. I’d repurchase this product from Origins but if the Too Cool For School one was readily available, I might go for that one instead. It comes with nearly the same amount of product and it comes out cheaper. It does however come in a shaving cream type of canister, not airport friendly. Pros: ￼creamy/frothy ￼nicely scented ￼skin felt balanced, without feeling dry ￼little goes a long way Cons: ￼too cool for school comes with more for $4 less ￼contains essential oils if you’re sensitive (too cool for school also contains fragrance)
Am I confident with this cleanser?
As a person, I try not to support it cosmetics because I am not going to give money to a company that has shown that they don’t care about me or people who look like me. But I must have bumped my head because I got a three-piece set that included the it Cosmetics - Secret Sauce Anti-Aging Moisturizerand it Cosmetics - Miracle Water Micellar Cleanserand this post’s featured item, it Cosmetics - Confidence in a Cleanser . One product saved my skin after I left the DRUNK ELEPHANT - T.L.C. Sukari Babyfacial Maskfor ... an hour while working and one product was just fancy water. (I plan on doing a storytime about my Babyfacial mishap.) then there was the cleanser, which I literally started using about ... 3 weeks ago. ABOUT THIS PRODUCT This two-in-one serum cleanser was formulated with plastic surgeons for normal, oil, combination, dry and sensitive skin types. It comes in two sizes: 1.7 oz. for $12.50 and 5 oz. for $28. You are supposed to apply it onto all wet skin and work in for about 30 seconds. KEY INGREDIENTS • Anti-Aging Armour Rejuvenating Concentrate™ • Anti-aging collagen 😒 • Hyaluronic acid • Colloidal oatmeal • A super ceramide complex MY EXPERIENCE I started using this cleanser because I had just finished my go-to cleanser, ORIGINS - Checks and Balances Frothy Face Washand I wanted to use up a few of my smaller ones before going for a larger one. Enter Confidence in a Cleanser. I didn’t like this cleanser. Maybe it is because it was formulated to be a universally used cleanser, but I feel like this is kind of a nothing cleanser. It doesn’t directly hurt my skin, but I don’t see any benefits either. Actually, I had a larger than normal hormonal breakout than in normally do while using this cleanser. (This cleanser while also trying to finish the DRUNK ELEPHANT - Beste No. 9 Jelly Cleanser Deluxe Sample. So that could also be the culprit.) My skin was clean, but it didn’t feel how I wanted it to feel. It can take a bit to work into a lather, which can be annoying. If you have used this product, then you know. Recommend? No.

Holy grails! My secret weapons to deal with emergency!!!
There is no superhero in our life to save us, but I believe we all have one or two secret products that can act as heroes to save us from a skin emergency. What I love to share are these two products that have already rescued me for so many times, from meetings to interviews. Nothing is perfect, but this Out of Trouble Mask ORIGINS - Out of Trouble 10 Minute Mask to Rescue Problem Skinis perfect for me, and it is super timesaving when I have some dead skins to clean or need to fight inflammation or pimples. This mask contains camphor, zinc oxide, and salicylic acid to calm skin, absorb excess oil, and unclog pores. It is especially good for people with combination/oily skin like me, and what I do is just to apply to T-zone and areas that are really rough and flaky, wait for 8 minutes, and wash off using makeup pads. The smell is like camphor ball, but I kinda like it, and the price of it is very nice to my wallet as well. Highly recommend this one to you. Another skincare hero saved me from an emergency is this SK-II face mask.SK-II - Pitera Facial Treatment Mask To be honest, I was shocked by its price but all of my friends recommended this to me, and I have to say that it is worth the praise. It is weird to say but it smells like spit, but the effect is amazing. I put it on after cleansing my face, and wait for 15 minutes, take it off and gently massage the rest essence on the face, then a light moisturizer. My face is never this bright and hydrated! And my pores also get smaller as well, which is something I would never expect from a sheet mask. I know some people will say the price is beyond the budget. But if you have the chance to try it, or with some really important events coming up, these amazing stuff will not let you down!

Spot Super Saver!
Origins Super Spot Remover This is one of the few products I like from Origins. This brand is notorious for using essential oils and other sensitizing ingredients. Although I love their business practices and focus on sustainability! Origins claims, “Our best acne treatment helps quickly fight acne blemishes as it helps visibly correct lingering discoloration for spotless-looking skin.” It does this with 1.5% salicylic acid (BHA) to help clear pores and remove excess oil. At $19.00 the price for the product can seem a bit steep for such a small amount of product. I honestly think it’s worth it. When applying this treatment, you use so little. My bottle has lasted for months now and I’m no where near finishing it. Would I repurchase? Yes I would. It works well for me. ORIGINS - Super Spot Remover Acne Treatment Gel
The gift of good skin!
For Christmas, I made my sister a new skincare routine! She has combo acne prone skin with some sensitivity and redness, she also complained of some dark circles around her eyes. She currently uses terrible products and is pretty lazy when it comes to skincare so she doesn’t even wash her face everyday! I tried to design something simple, affordable, and easy to keep up with (e.g. mostly drug store products) but also an effective starting point for her skin needs! How did I do?

These saved my dry tight skin! ❄️
I usually have combination skin but for the past few weeks my skin has been extremely dry and tight. I’ve felt the most dryness on the lower parts of my cheeks and slowly my face has become more sensitive. These products have definitely helped improve the texture and hydration of my skin. I’m usually somewhat dry with my forehead/nose being really oily. My area has been having really cold dry winter days and nights. I start off with glossier milky jelly cleanser. It’s super conditioning. It doesn’t lather and helps soothe the redness. This has always worked for my combination skin and now works perfectly for my dehydrated dry skin. This doesn’t have a scent which I love. I have the full size and I already bought a back up of this. Full size is 6 oz $18 Mini size is 2 oz $9 Glossier. - Milky Jelly Cleanser I follow with my peach & Lilly glass skin refining serum. I’ve been using this since July and it’s really light but moisturizing. It doesn’t irritate my skin at all and I’ve definitely seen my skin be less textured. This texture is very thin close to watery. This also doesn’t have a scent to it. It’s kinda pricey but does last several months. It’s $39 for 1 oz PEACH & LILY - Glass Skin Refining Serum For moisturizer I’ve been using the GLAMGLOW moisture trip omega rich moisturizer. This is a lightweight moisturizer but feels very hydrating. It has helped with my redness a lot. It has hyaluronic acid so it will help with dryness. It’s a nice feeling knowing you’re putting on a good moisturizer to help with dryness without the thickness of it. It has a slight fresh/avocado scent to it. It’s pricey at $55 for 1.7 oz. GLAMGLOW - MOISTURETRIP Omega-Rich Face Moisturizer At night I love to follow with the origins drink up intensive overnight hydrating mask with avocado & Swiss glacier water. I absolutely love this overnight mask. I’ve been using it for years and it’s something I trust to get rid of the dryness and tightness in my skin. It feels really soft on the skin and it’s not thick. Its great for my sensitive skin too. It has a very slight avocado smell but it’s not too much. For the first week I used this every night. After that I now use this every other day. Besides that I tend to use this once or twice a week. Full 2.5 oz is $27 Mini 1 oz is $13 ORIGINS - Drink Up-Intensive Overnight Mask to Quench Skin's Thirst I never forget about the lips and I use my trusty glossier mint balm dot com. I love this so much that I’m almost done with it. Personally the mint, rose, coconut and Un scented one are the ones with the most hydration. It’s pricey but I’ve had this for about a year. It’s 0.5 oz for $12. Glossier. - Balm Dotcom
ORIGINS - Drink Up-Intensive Overnight Mask to Quench Skin's Thirst Dry? Dull? Winter skin? Let’s face it! It’s coming! Origins drink up intensive overnight mask helps with dry winter skin. My skin looks so bright, and radiant in the morning! Mask with avocado & glacier water! 🥑💧

Some products that I emptied this month and a mini review of each of them!! 💚 Whats a recent empty of yours? 💚 @cosrx Advanced Snail 96 Mucin Power Essence was really thick essence that helped hydrate my skin. I didn’t see much of a difference with my acne scars, but it softened and plumped my skin. It was an overall good product that improved the way my skin looked! 💚 @purito_official green level centella buffet serum has become one of my favourite serums! It was so good at hydrating and repairing the skin. The texture is nice and hydrating but it absorbs into the skin really well. I noticed that this soothed my skin and overall my skin just felt healthier. Will definately be repurchasing! 💚 @origins Hello, Calm mask contains cannabis sativa seed oil which is an antioxident that helps to soothe the skin. Although I didn’t find this mask to be super moisturizing, it really calmed and soothed my skin. I was able to use this on my most sensitive days without any irritation. 💚 @cosrx Aloe Soothing Sun Cream is one of my favourite sunscreens. This is a really gentle and moisturizing sunscreen. I think this would be a great winter sunscreen! It is a chemical sunscreen so there is no white cast and is SPF 50 PA +++. It is very hydrating so I would reccomend for dry skin. 💚 @sioris_official Time is Running Out mist is a toner and oil blend that helps to deeply hydrate the skin. I really liked using this in my morning routine for my toner and serum step which really helped me cut down on steps. I did not find this product to be greasy or sticky but it still gave a really nice glow!
I Guess My Expectations For The Origins Is Too High😫😫
I have dry, acne-prone and sensitive skin. I started using the Origins since a while ago. The ORIGINS - Dr. Andrew Weil For Mega-Mushroom Relief & Resilience Soothing Treatment Lotion Limited Editionshows great results in calming the skin and using it consistently as a toner mask helps with reducing bumps.👍 So I was very interested in other products from the Origins. I bought the Origins Mega-Mushroom series because I heard this it is very good for sensitive skin. It can hydrate and calm my irritated skin. But after using it, I think the Origins Mega-Mushroom series is quite disappointing. I won't repurchase their ORIGINS - Dr. Andrew Weil For Mega-Mushroom Relief & Resilience Soothing Face Mask because it's not as effective as the treatment lotion when I have acne breakouts during my menstrual period. The Mega-Mushroom face mask helps more with moisturizing, calming, as well as reducing skin irritation and peeling, but the Mega-Mushroom lotion does the same, doing it even better in a shorter period of time, so you might as well go for the lotion instead of going for the mask.👎👎 ORIGINS - Hello Calm Relaxing & Hydrating Face Mask with Hemp Seed Oil I will not repurchase it.👎👎 This face mask, which is absorbed easily and doesn't leave the skin greasy, helps to calm and relax skin as well as moisturize and hydrate. Its main ingredient is hemp seed oil which prevents skin inflammation and repairs damaged skin. However, it didn't do much for me and besides having a reassuring scent, it did nothing for my inflamed acne. You can still give it a go though because of how cheap it is. After all, different skin types will react differently to it. How do you like the Origins? What are some of your fav products? 😝

my maskne routine!
Hey guys! I think we’ve all seen the maskne/mascne/mask acne posts going around since we’re all discovering the side effect of wearing a mask! I thought I’d share my routine to combat this acne too, just in case it helps even just one person. This is my personal regime and may not be suitable for everyone. To set the scene: you’ve been working all day or even just been out a couple hours and you finally get home! You take off your mask and discover almost damp, very moist skin. Maybe you even have a new breakout, or none at all. What do you do now? Cleanse the skin Right away, I use GLOW RECIPE - Papaya Sorbet Smoothing Enzyme Cleansing Balm because the silky oil really breaks down the products I have on my face that need to come off after sitting under a mask. I find a cleansing balm essential in thoroughly removing sunscreen, makeup, and other products. I then use OLE HENRIKSEN - Find Your Balance Oil Control Cleanser afterwards to really finish off my cleanse and feel super fresh. This also controls my oil, so the skin that sits under the mask isn’t creating excess sebum. It erases all traces of the balm and gives you a clean slate. Apply a toner I find toners extremely helpful in balancing my face after I cleanse. My absolute, holy grail toner is GLOW RECIPE - Watermelon Glow PHA+BHA Pore-Tight Toner . It brings moisture back into my skin and stays, feeling plump and heavenly dewy. It also visibly shrunk my ginormous pores within 3-5 days of using it twice a day and my pores have been much smaller ever since. This is the only product that helps control my oil and keeps my face hydrated. Even expensive lotions by themselves don’t do it for my skin. Apply a moisturizer I love love love CeraVe - Moisturizing Cream For Normal To Dry Skin because it is thick yet absorbs well into my skin and feels light afterwards. It also leaves a comfortable—not oily or gross in any way—protective layer on my skin so the outside elements don’t damage it nor dry it out. I love this during all seasons. It works wonders combined with the toner I mentioned before. 4-5 times a week, apply a mask I find this super helpful in drying out specific acne spots or just giving my skin an entire refresh. I’ve noticed a significant decrease in the acne I get when I stick to using it! My favorites are ORIGINS - Retexturizing Mask with Rose Clay (review on my page) and the ORIGINS - Clear Improvement Charcoal Honey Mask to Purify and Nourish . Origins has always been super gentle on my sensitive skin and extremely effective! Apply a treatment I’ve used DIFFERIN - DIFFERIN Acne Treatment Gel and it wasn’t strong enough for my skin. I now use a prescription tretinoin cream nightly and it’s way more effective for me. Any treatment helps though!! What is your routine? I’d love to hear about it! 🤍 I hope this helps!!
Face Mask that Nourishes & Purifies!
Are you wanting a face mask that clears & purifies your face, without drying it out? Then this face mask is perfect for you! ORIGINS - Clear Improvement Charcoal Honey Mask to Purify and Nourish What is it? - A gentle, purifying mask that detoxes while nourishing skin, leaving it feeling comfortably clean, clear, and conditioned. What’s in it? - Formulated with Bamboo Charcoal, this purifying mask actively deep cleans & draws out deep-dwelling pore-cloggers, impurities & debris. Golden Wildflower & Fermented Honey help nourish skin. - It’s formulated without parabens, phthalates, sodium lauryl sulfate, propylene glycol, mineral oil, DEA, petrolatum, paraffin, polyethylene beads, formaldehyde & animal ingredients* (*except cruelty-free honey & beeswax) How to use it- - Use once a week or as often as needed. Apply on clean face and allow to dry (approx 10 min). Rinse well. My review- - I have dry, sensitive, and acne-prone skin. I purchased this product before realizing how packed full of essential oils Origins products are, and how they can be harmful to the skin. However, I still really love their masks. First off, this mask smells absolutely amazing! It has a comforting, warm honey scent. The mask also has a gorgeous golden bronze appearance. I typically leave it on for 10 minutes. When I wash it off I’m left with smooth, hydrated skin. It really does what it says, it purifies and nourishes the skin! If you liked the pore-clearing of the effects of their original charcoal mask, but found it too drying, you should definitely try this mask!

Don’t let the name mislead you! Just try it!
DRUNK ELEPHANT-B-Hydra Intensive Hydration Serum
“Clean by Sephora” Brands Can Still Be Damaging
Just because it’s organic, “natural”, or pretty, doesn’t make it good for you. Today I’m going to focus on two brands that consistently overprice their products that claim to be gentle but are, at base, sensitizing water that smells nice. I’d avoid them entirely, though there are honestly very few brands at Sephora that are worth the money. • Fresh: I jumped on this Insta-hyped brand a couple years ago. Most of their products are essentially just perfume with some skincare ingredients thrown in for INCI flavor. I’m normally not so harsh, but I get headaches from how fragrant their fresh - Vitamin C Glow Face Mask is. Same for the fresh - Rose Deep Hydration Toner , which dried out my skin terribly when my skin barrier started rioting against the volatile rose oil. Even if your skin doesn’t visibly react, fragrance and volatile plant oils oxidize, breaking down collagen beneath the surface, making this a brand (amongst many) that I’ll continue to avoid and recommend against when it comes to facial products. • Summer Fridays: Their scrub masks are, full stop, bad for skin. The scrub particles are abrasive and not uniform in size, increasing the likelihood to end up with irritated skin rather than a smooth glow. As well, they’re highly fragranced (see my above beef with fragrance), to the point that I use my leftover SUMMER FRIDAYS - R + R Mask as a foot scrub whenever I want to feel bougie. Damage on the surface AND collagen? Not worth $50. SUMMER FRIDAYS - Jet Lag Mask uses orange peel oil, another volatile essential oil, but has the added flaw of featuring peppermint oil, which contains sensitizing, skin-irritating menthol. There are other brands (some of their products included in this “Things That Didn’t Work For Me” photo) that utilize collagen-damaging fragrance and essential oils, but I find these two so often praised on Instagram that I can’t help but wonder if people look at the ingredient lists. I know some love these brands and that’s fine- but there are so many better, more affordable brands with clinically-researched ingredients and no unnecessary irritants.
