Current Night Time Routine - 4 to 5 Steps
Well, 4 to 5 after cleansing :-) for which I use Biore charcoal cleanser. But if I have really heavy makeup on I double cleanse with No7 cleansing balm and then Biore cleanser. So as for my new nightly routine: The Ordinary - Granactive Retinoid 2% Emulsion I did see a reduction in my fine lines since using this, so I’m going to keep a retinoid or retinol in my Arsenal at all times, since this bottle is almost empty N°7 - Restore & Renew Face & Neck Multi Action Serum smells good, makes your face soft, um..... dr. brandt - Hydro Biotic Recovery Sleeping Mask really really works to brighten my skin and gets rid of my redness VERSED - DEW POINT Moisturizing Gel-Cream felt wonderful when applying, not too much of a scent, and absorbed really fast. My skin feels so hydrated. 4 stars because this is only my 1st night using it!!! 💜💜💜 Where’s the 5 step you’re asking? Well let me tell ya!! It’s any one of my gazillion masks(sheet masks) (mud masks charcoal masks) pastes, goos , you name it. I’ll pick 2 a week and do them. Although *SpoilerAlert* I will be doing a week long masking and posting the results daily. Let me know down in the comments if you’d like to see that. Oh I forgot to mention it’s a k beauty brand designed to last 7 days. I saw it and was 🧐 🧐???

5 ⭐️ for a new moisturizer!
Thanks to my IPSY subscription, I’ve been able to try out some nice products like #Veriphy - 20/20 Phytoglycogen + Peptides Eye Cream[products]#[FiveStars] & FIRST AID BEAUTY - FAB Pharma Arnica Relief & Rescue Mask I gave the arnica mask 4 stars because I feel it’s too heavy to leave on, with the word “mask” in its title I thought of washing it off, however the instructions say to let it absorb, and dab off any excess. Before the mask I applied dr. brandt - Needles No More No More Baggage and it always brings down puffiness. My favourite serum to date: Dr. Jart+ - Cicapair Tiger Grass Serum immediately soothes redness 😊 I finished off the routine with LA ROCHE-POSAY - Effaclar Mat Daily Face Moisturizer for Oily Skin which could act as a great base for makeup if I wanted. I bought this cream specifically because it’s meant to reduce pore size and is non comodogenic. I like how it looks so far! The before and after pictures speak for themselves!
Is Dr. Brandt’s No More Baggage Worth the $$$?
I experience constant sleep disruptions (hot flashes, night sweats, etc - thanks menopause). As you would expect - this takes a toll on my under eye area. I’ve been using some fabulous anti-aging eye serums and cremes such as Pixi 24k eye elixir and Ole Henrikson Banana Bright, and they definitely help, but treatments just weren’t doing enough. Enter the Dr. Brandt No More Baggage depuffing gel - which I was able to snag for half the retail cost in the FabFitFun Edit Sale. I simply wait for my eye serum and creme to soak in.. then apply as directed. Here’s my review and the pros/cons. This product works well enough - but at $42 retail, IMHO - it should perform better than “well enough.” It was definitely worth the $21 that I paid however. 👍🏻 Pros: It’s cooling and soothing It has a peachy tint to it which helps color correct dark circles. It has a silky yet matte finish which sort of acts like an under eye primer. 👎🏻 Cons: The cost It plays well with concealer and the “primer” characteristic seems to help with creasing - but if your eyes get at all itchy or watery throughout the day like mine do due to allergies - the product (with or without concealer) tends to pill even with gentle dabbing. So basically once it’s on you can’t touch it at all. Bottom line - while this isn’t a miracle worker it does yield results. So if you have under eye bags and dark circles and don’t care about the price tag - grab a tube. Alternatively and if you’re on a budget - wait for a sale, coupon or save up your ulta rewards. Cheers 🥂 Robin dr. brandt - Needles No More No More Baggage

#drbrandtgiftedme I absolutely love physical exfoliation. There’s just something to it that chemical exfoliation can’t give. The feeling of a scrub on a skin, polishing your face is unmatched 👌 With that in mind, I make sure that physical exfoliators I use are not too rough (so they don’t irrritate or hurt my skin). On of the options I’ve been using lately is @drbrandt microdermabrasion exfoliator. This one is amazing on all fronts! It’s really gentle and actually feels like a cream. The exfoliating particles are so small, you barely feel them. Considering that, it still does an amazing job at polishing and smoothing out the skin. Every time I use it, my face feels smooth like a fresh canvas. I’d suggest not using it too often (I use it about 2 times a week) and being very gentle when using it (don’t use too much pressure when spreading it across your face and massaging it) . . . . gifted
My introduction into exfoliation ❤️
This has been a cult favorite microdermabrasion for as long as I can remember. My grandma uses it, my mom uses it. When I first started getting into skincare, this was one of the first things I bought. Before using physical exfoliation, check the chart I posted previously to make sure it’s correct for your skin type ❤️ dr. brandt - Microdermabrasion Age-Defying Exfoliator With a Heart Claims: This age-defying exfoliator gently polishes and smooths the skin, buffing away dead surface skin cells for a smoother, brighter complexion in minutes. Exfoliate deeply with professional grade crystals Polish to reveal radiant skin Smooth the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. ￼Paraben, Phthalate, and sulfate free. Key ingredients: ALUMINUM OXIDE CRYSTALS: Professional-grade crystals that gently and effectively remove dead skin cells LACTIC ACID: A milk derived alpha hydroxy acid that gently sweeps and softens skin JOJOBA OIL, ALOE VERA AND CHAMOMILE EXTRACTS: Soothe and refresh skin My thoughts 💭 This is $79.00 for 2 oz. of product. Knowing everything I know now, I’ll start by saying that I would not repurchase. This is a wonderful physical exfoliator no doubt about it. Everything it claims it does. BUT, no matter how gently I use this, it just hurts. It’s not causing micro tears or anything like that, it just hurts. I have come to love Chemical exfoliation much better and my go-to chemical peel is a little over $7.00 so there really just isn’t a comparison. However, if you like physical exfoliation, this is truly an amazing product. My ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ rating is based on the product alone and the fact that its great at exfoliating and making the fine lines and wrinkles much less noticeable. In a pinch and if I was out of my chemical peel, I would definitely use this in its place. ❤️ Have you used this cult favorite? What are your thoughts? 💭

The Truth About Antioxidants, Hyaluronic acid, and Salicylic Acid
As someone with very dehydrated skin on the inside but oily looking on the outside, I’ve had to deal with the effects of this type of skin for years and the way it makes me look. Dehydrated skin can look tired and fine lines and wrinkles get accentuated; you would think the fact it’s oily would counteract that, but it doesn’t. My oily skin just looks shiny and that makes everything so much worse and because I live in a hot country my skin can suffer more. I work as a makeup artist and it’s work that’s under pressure. Sometimes I’m outside in the hot sun all day; or under photographers’ lighting. This means I’m constantly hot and sweaty. My skin is expelling water from the inside of my skin to lower the outside temperature. This makes the inside dehydrated and the outside too moist. Combined with that, it’s a fact that as the temperature rises the skin produces even more oil, making me look just horrible. In desperation, I consulted a dermatologist and she advised me that to help combat these problems the only thing to do is add some active ingredients into my skincare routine, by way of products with antioxidants, hyaluronic acid, and salicylic acid. To explain what this means to you and me I’ve outlined how they work like this - Antioxidants are ingredients that block off the damage caused by free radicals. Free radicals are the toxins that damage the skin: so pollution and sunrays, UVA and UVB, lifestyle by-products like alcohol or cigarettes. They are often found in food and always in nature and they work by anti-aging, brightening, and evening out skin texture; leaving skin radiant and glowy. An amazing product filled with antioxidants which I really love because of its gorgeous texture and easy applications is - My Clarins Re-Boost Refreshing Hydrating Cream CLARINS - RE-BOOST Refreshing Hydrating Cream Based in both science and nature: vegan, filled with antioxidants, natural ingredients like coconut water, and goji berries, with the added bonus of eco-friendly packaging. Hyaluronic Acid is based in nature: a gel-like substance that has the capacity to soak up and keep over 1000 times its own weight in water and to put this water into your skin cells. Its purpose in beauty products is to keep your skin plump, soft, and hydrated. Used widely in skincare it’s nature’s gift to the dry and dehydrated skin type. With this in mind, a lovely product filled with hyaluronic acid I would definitely recommend because of its lovely silky texture and amazing results is - Caudalie SOS Thirst Quenching Serum CAUDALIE - Vinosource SOS Deep Hydration Serum An ultra-light texture using concentrated grape water and hyaluronic acid to restore the level of hydration and dehydration - has 96% natural ingredients and it smells great. Salicylic Acid: this ingredient gently exfoliates away dead skin cells and oil build-up in the pores. This ingredient is highly recommended because it’s gentle enough not to dehydrate the skin, but it works well. Perfect to use on an oily T-zone or any skin that suffers from excess oil problems. My choice would always be - Dr.Brandt Skincare Pores No More-Skin Primer dr. brandt - Pores No More Pore Refiner Primer The great thing is it’s a 2 in1 product: It makes your makeup base look flawless but also helps diminish the look of pores and imperfections leaving a super-smooth canvas. Controls shine throughout the day by using salicylic acid in the form of Red Clover which has oil-absorbing spheres. Ignore all hype around these ingredients. All you need to know is that they work, and don’t be put off with the word ‘acid’ in the name. Both Salicylic and Hyaluronic acids are not actually acids as we know it but active ingredients that give the products the edge over basic skincare.
Does silicone “suffocate” the skin? Myth busted.
It’s a very common misconception in the beauty world that silicones in skincare/make up “suffocate” the skin, clog the pores, and cause breakouts. Despite this myth silicone can actually benefit the skin a lot. What does Silicone do? Silicone, which is derived from silica, is a common ingredient that gives products slip, offers protection against moisture loss, and can help hide the appearance of skin texture/pores. Why doesn’t it clog the pores? To understand this you really need to understand the structure of silicone. It has a unique structure of large molecules with wide spaces in between. These large molecules are too big to “clog” the pores which is why they are used in a lot of “pore filling” primers. The silicone creates a silky texture that creates a protective barrier over the skin and in turn helps reduce the immediate appearance of pores and texture. They are unable to penetrate the pore lining where acne is formed. But don’t they suffocate the skin when used in skincare? Actually, no! Silicones in skincare can be extremely beneficial, especially to those with dry skin. Sometimes silicones can contribute to the base formula of a product. While the actives sink through the skin the silicone creates that protective layer on top. This insures the actives penetrate the skin and it prevents TEWL (Trans Epidermal Water Loss). Because the molecule is so large it sits over the pores but thanks to the wide spaces in between your skin is still “able to breathe”. One of my favorite silicone based products is the dr. brandt - Pores No More Pore Refiner Primer . This primer has a silky smooth texture that creates that “breatheable” barrier on your skin. It helps smooth over pore appearance and texture while giving the skin a matte finish (making it perfect for this with oily skin like myself). Never once has this cause me to break out and it feels very lightweight on the skin (like most silicones should). I feel like it does smooth over my pores and creates a better base for my make up to lay over top.

RIP MY EYELIDS - NOT FOR SENSITIVE SKIN
I have never had a severe bad reaction to a skincare product. After using the dr. brandt - Do Not Age with Dr. Brandt Triple Peptide Eye Cream I had the WORST rash on my eyelids. I don’t know if you could call it a rash, my eyelids were bright red with a lot of bumps around them. I had to take 2 Benadryl two nights in a row for it to go away. Luckily I only have the small size and am not super bummed about buying the full size but if you have sensitive skin especially a sensitive eye area stay away.

My PM Night Routine 👌
I do tend to switch up serums and moisturizers depending on if I exfoliated that day, or did a chemical peel, or if my skin is feeling dry. But this is the main routine I stick to. Murad is my fav brand. ELEMIS - Pro-Collagen Cleansing Balm - This is a great cleansing balm I received in my BeautyFix Box. It Deep cleans and dissolves makeup, including my waterproof mascara and has anti aging benefits. It contains Chamomile, Rosehip oil, Lactic acid and other Essential oils. EMMA HARDIE - Moringa Light Cleansing Gel - Another product I got from a BeautyFix box, this is more of a gel like oil cleanser instead of a balm which I like. It also removes my mascara and is packed with skin loving essential oils dr. brandt - Clean Biotic - This is a PH balanced yogurt cleanser with chlorophyll. Chlorophyll stimulates anti aging enzymes and encourages nourished youthful skin, it also repairs sun damage and fights free radicals. It’s a creamy texture that doesn’t foam up which I love. Has antioxidants like Green tea, white tea and Grapeseed extract. It’s very soothing. exuviance - Anti-Pollution Protection Essence - This Essence targets the skins microbiome to help re-balance and strengthen the skins moisture barrier. Also has ingredients and antioxidants to neutralize the visible aging effects due to stressors like pollution. It’s very light almost like water, I take about 5 drops and press it into my skin. Murad - Essential-C Toner - Refreshing mist with antioxidants that brightens the skin and replenishes moisture. I do use this before my Essence. Has a very citrusy smell and comes in a spray bottle which I like opposed to pouring out the toner. Murad - Retinol Youth Renewal Serum - Fast acting retinol serum that minimizes fine lines, firms, evens skin tone, and boots radiance. It has a technology that releases a fast acting retinol, a time released retinol and a retinol booster. It also has hydrating ingredients like Hyaluronic acid to minimize dryness. Murad - Renewing Eye Cream - A nourishing eye cream that firms and brightens and targets signs of aging. It has Peptides and Retinol to increase elasticity and a brightening complex for dark circles. Love how thick this eye cream is, I’ve seen a difference in my dark circles, and fine lines. Murad - Hydro-Dynamic Ultimate Moisture - Cream with advanced hyaluronic acid technology provides 24 hour hydration, restores suppleness and reduces fine lines. Coconut extract helps provide enhanced moisture retention. I love thick extra hydrating night creams and nothing compares to this. Murad - Night Fix Enzyme Treatment - Accelerates nighttime skin repair,and visibly minimizes fine lines. Skin loses water 3x faster at night, works with the body’s circadian rhythm. Def a great extra step.
My go-to products when my skin acts up
dr. brandt - Clean Biotic I received this product in one of my monthly BoxyCharm boxes. What is is? A multi-tasking, pH-balanced yogurt cleanser that instantly melts away dirt, pollution, makeup, and excess oil without stripping the skin while helping to retain moisture and soothe redness and irritation due to dryness. OPHTHALMOLOGIST TESTED. DERMATOLOGIST TESTED. HYPOALLERGENIC. SAFE FOR CONTACT-LENS WEARERS. Free of formaldehydes Paraben Free Phthalate Free Fragrance Free Mineral Oil Free Sulfate Free NOT CRUELTY FREE 👎 TEXTURE: Gel cream CONSISTENCY: Medium weight SCENT: Fragrance free Results to expect: ￼Dissolve stubborn dirt, impurities, pollution, makeup and excess oil ￼Maintain a healthy pH balance ￼Help the skin maintain its balance of natural flora ￼Help strengthen the skin's barrier I personally really like this gentle cleanser. If I get the occasional breakout this comes in very handy. Unfortunately I will not repurchase due to the fact that Dr. Brandt is NOT cruelty free. 👎 I then follow up with PUREFORET - Centella Multi-Lotion I am a sucker for a product with Centella in it as it helps soothe irritated skin. Benefits: * This lightweight lotion helps suppress bacteria that cause skin problems and improve ance-prone skin. * Madecassic Acid and Salicylic Acid offer excellent anti-inflammatory effect and promote wound healing. * Formulated with 86.47% Centella Asiatica Leaf Water to deliver soothing moisture to sensitive skin. * Free of 26 allergens, 20 harmful chemicals, synthetic surfactants and artificial fragrances TEXTURE: Thin liquid CONSISTENCY: Light weight SCENT: Slight natural fragrance All I need is 2-3 pumps and my skin absorbs it up. I feel it’s been key at helping me restore my skin barrier when it’s damaged as well as helping keep my skin calm and acne free. This will and has been a repurchase for me and both my 18 year old daughter as we find great results. PUREFORET - Centella Multi-Lotion Cost $18 on www.facetory.com dr. brandt - Clean Biotic Cost $35 now $24.50 with 30% off

Favorite Mask for blackheads
This mask has been a game changer for me. I use it once a week, specifically in my T-zone. When it’s first applies it’s a clear gel with little blue beads. As it’s being rubbed around the blue beads start to dissolve and the mask with start looking blue. Once the mask is fully dried it will be a solid blue color. Your skin will feel tightened in the areas that’s it applied. The end results being your pores feel cleaned out and looks smaller. Even though I generally only use it once a week there are times where I have a special event and want my skin to be flawless. This mask can be used all over or specific areas that you feel need some extra love. The dr. Brandt pores no more vacuum cleaner is worth every penny. My skin always looks so fresh, smooth. I totally recommend. dr. brandt - Pores No More Vacuum Cleaner Pore Purifying Mask
I’m finally here to admit my @drbrandt obsession. Some of my favourite products when it comes to skin care and beauty pore perfecting exfoliator: uses both physical and chemical exfoliates to target impurities and cleanse the skin. It targets pores, fullness and uneven texture. This is what I use when I know my skin needs some serious work. You never want to over do it, but this product is amazing dr. brandt - PoreDermabrasion Pore Perfecting Exfoliator Pores no more luminizer primmer: I apply this before applying makeup and on areas that I really want to highlight. It’s great if you want to apply this with or without makeup it gives your skin a really nice glow. It says that it refines the look of pores, but I don’t really see a crazy difference. I mostly use this when I want a really nice glow dr. brandt - Pores No More Luminizer Primer vacuum cleanser pore perfecting mask: this mask is able to unclog pores, and leave your skin feeling refreshed and clean. With Salicylic acid and glycolic acid it helps to exfoliate the skin dr. brandt - Pores No More Vacuum Cleaner Pore Purifying Mask Happy Friday🌿🧡

Absolutely zero editing done to this photo. as some of you know I have been on a desperate skin care journey. I have extremely large pores, dark circles under my eyes, and fine lines. . I have been experimenting with multiple products. And I am happy to share some of my favorites with you right now. . fresh - Mini Masking Kit Gift Set I use quite a few products from fresh however my 3 favorites are the soy face cleanser, black tea firming overnight mask, and Umbrian Clay Mask. . Kate Somerville - Kx Active Concentrates Bio-Mimicking Peptides Serum the Bio-Mimicking serum is truly magic in a bottle. I can tell when I have skipped using this product and I’ll never forget it again! . ELEMIS - Superfood Vital Veggie Mask I start my mornings with the Superfios Cica Calm juice. This is only an AM product that I use after I wash my fast but before any serums or creams. . MARIO BADESCU - Vitamin C Serum are use the vitamin C serum every other night. I love how it has helped with my skins elasticity! . DRUNK ELEPHANT - Protini Polypeptide Cream Protini cream is a game changer in your skin care routine. I only use this cream at night and my skin feels like absolute heaven. I use this on nights that I do not use an overnight mask. . dr. brandt - 24/7 Retinol Eye Cream 24/7 Retinol eye cream. As a mom I get very dark circles and fine lines under my eyes. This product has helped tremendously in both of those areas. I use it twice a day. . My morning moisturizer switches between a few.

It smells like roses and does not feel heavy on my skin. @freshbeauty Lotus Youth Preserve we all know this brand is superior when it comes to the scent of their products. And this cream is no exception. But besides the wonderful scent I love the way it nourishes my skin and it doesn’t leave my oily areas too oily but it helps with my dry areas throughout the day. . I plan on trying a few new products here soon. After I give them all a fair trial I will be sure to leave my reviews and post an updated photo.
skincare routine | nighttime edition 🌙
This is my current nighttime skincare routine, one that I have to use daily if not I definitely notice a difference in my skin get next day. After cleansing with my LA ROCHE-POSAY - Effaclar Purifying Foaming Gel , I tone my face with the DICKINSON'S - Original Witch Hazel Pore Perfecting Toner removing any left over makeup that the cleanser may have missed. Next I follow up with the The Ordinary - Retinol 1% in Squalane which helps promote a youthful and rejuvenated appearance in the skin from the retinol, however it does make skin sensitive to sun exposure which is why I must use sunscreen in the morning. Then I apply the The Ordinary - Niacinamide 10% + Zinc 1% which is both an oil control and acne treatment in one. For under eye puffiness or dark circles I use the dr. brandt - 24/7 Retinol Eye Cream which also contains retinol to reduce the appearance of fine lines and aging, as well as olive fruit to reduce redness. Lastly, I end my routine with the Neutrogena - Neutrogena Hydroboost Water Gel Moisturizer to seal everything in. This water gel is light yet efficient at retaining moisture and keeping skin soft. Xx.

Overall Good Product!
This Product was super good and helped my skin for a long time. Although as time went on it started to cause my skin to break out so i stopped using it. Despite this, it’s still a great product that leaves your skin feeling smooth and fresh each morning!dr. brandt - Clean Biotic

dr. Brandt No More Baggage
I was honestly a little disappointed with this product. I haven’t really seen much of a difference in my under eyes from using this every night. It burns my eyes somewhat which is really not something I like in an under eye product. I expected this product to work way better for me than it has. dr. brandt - Needles No More No More Baggage

Dr Brandt PORES NO MORE PRIMER This is the primer that will you get you compliments. I don’t have much luck with primers and they usually dry me out and turn me into a dragon lady but this one! This primer does the dang thang. It actually makes my pores vanish without drying me out or making my skin crack. The only other primer I can tolerate btw is Laura Mercier hydrating primer. I normally just use a sticky oil as a primer.

dr. brandt - 24/7 Retinol Eye Cream I love this eye cream because it does not feel oily. I have tried extremely expensive eye creams and they just leave a layer of oil on my skin and I don’t like that. This product also has a little shimmer in it so it just brightens up my eyes. I definitely recommend this!
