Updated PM Routine
Hey guys! I recently posted my updated AM routine, so now it’s time for my updated PM routine! It’s mostly the same products, minus SPF and adding in actives. For reference, I have dry, sensitive, acne-prone skin! 1. *Not pictured* If I wore makeup that day (very rare) or used multiple layers of sunscreen, I use the DHC - Deep Cleansing Oil to double cleanse my skin. Double cleansing provides a deeper clean on days that I need it! ($28 for 6.7oz at Dermstore) 2. VANICREAM - Gentle Facial Cleanser : I recently made the switch from CeraVe hydrating cleanser, and I am absolutely loving it! It’s still gentle, but it provides an amazing deep clean! It foams up really well. My skin is so soft and clean after using it. It’s the perfect first step for my routine. I use one pump with my Innerneed silicone face scrubber. ($8.99 for 8oz at Target.) 3. HADALABO - Gokujyun Premium Lotion : This hyaluronic acid solution contains 5 different molecular weights of hyaluronic acid to penetrate deeply into the skin. It has a gel-like texture. I apply a small amount on damp skin. It leaves my skin feeling plump, hydrated, and glowing. ($15.89 for 8oz on Amazon.) 4. CeraVe - CeraVe Moisturising Cream : This is the moisturizer that I keep coming back to. I have yet to find one that I like better! It’s very thick and moisturizing. It absorbs best when I apply it while my skin is still damp from the hyaluronic acid lotion. It provides a matte finish and keeps my skin soft & hydrated throughout the day! ($9.99 for 8oz at Target.) 5. Tretinoin 0.1% or PAULA'S CHOICE - 10% Azelaic Acid Booster : I alternate these products every other night. The Tretinoin is my holy grail product! It was prescribed by my dermatologist for my acne. If you are interested to learn more about Tretinoin, check out my posts “My Tretinoin Journey” and “Derm Prescribed Acne Treatments”. ($10 with insurance) Azelaic acid was also prescribed by my dermatologist to help fade my post-inflammatory erythema (PIE), which is basically post-acne red marks. I already had this product at home, so I’m finishing it up before switching to prescription strength. ($36 for 1oz from Paula’s Choice) Both of these products have helped me so much. My skin is getting clearer and clearer each day!

Updated AM Routine
My first post was about my AM routine, and since it’s been 6 months, I thought it would be a good time to post an updated AM routine! For reference, I have dry, sensitive, and acne-prone skin. So here are the products I currently use- 1. VANICREAM - Gentle Facial Cleanser I recently made the switch from CeraVe - Hydrating Facial Cleanser , and I am absolutely loving it! It’s still gentle, but it provides an amazing deep clean! My skin is so soft and clean after using it. It’s the perfect first step for my routine. I use one pump with my Innerneed silicone face scrubber. ($8.99 for 8oz at Target.) 2. HADALABO - Gokujyun Premium Lotion : This hyaluronic acid solution contains 5 different molecular weight of hyaluronic acid to penetrate deeply into the skin. It has a gel-like texture. I apply a small amount on damp skin. It leaves my skin feeling plump, hydrated, and glowing. ($15.89 for 5.75oz on Amazon.) 3. CeraVe - Moisturizing Cream For Normal To Dry Skin : This is the moisturizer that I keep coming back to. I have yet to find one that I like better! It’s very thick and moisturizing. It absorbs best when I apply it while my skin is still damp from the hyaluronic acid lotion. It provides a matte finish and keeps my skin soft & hydrated throughout the day! ($9.99 for 8oz at Target.) 4. Krave - The Beet Shield : This is my favorite sunscreen! It’s unlike any sunscreen I’ve ever tried. It’s so light, not sticky, and hydrates my skin! I can reapply it throughout the day without feeling like I have a ton of product on my face. This is my one “splurge” product! ($20 for 1.69oz at Kravebeauty.com) Total routine costs: $54.87 Stay tuned for my PM routine!

10 week progress pic :))
Just posting this as a little reminder to myself that my skin will have its ups and downs, I just gotta be patient :)) About 2.5 months ago I got this weird pile of breakouts on my cheeks and I felt SO bad about myself, and now it’s still not completely cleared and I’m dealing with quite a few acne scars but I still need to appreciate my progress! Here’s my stuff in case it helps whoo CeraVe - Salicylic Acid Facial Cleanser mild, gentle, does the trick. I use this evenings! ma:nyo Cleansing Soda Foam: 5 stars bit of an obscure brand but I use this mornings and sometimes evenings and it feels great, my face feels super clean but not stripped or dry HADALABO - Rohto Hadalabo Gokujun Hyaluronic Lotion Moist a lovely light toner! Full of hyaluronic acid, dries really nice on my face LOL The Ordinary - Hyaluronic Acid 2% + B5 pretty staple serum, I may try one that’s more sophisticated LOL but this one is still great The Ordinary - Niacinamide 10% + Zinc 1% still on the hunt for a better niacinimide product for my skin type since this doesn’t absorb super well, but I use this nights and only on my problem areas and it works pretty good Mad Hippie - Vitamin C Serum just starting on this and only using it nights but it absorbs well!! Hopefully doesn’t cause breakouts LOL since new products were the cause of my last pimple saga ETUDE - Soonjung Hydro Barrier Cream I really like this! Wonderful basic cream, very affordable. I’ve thought about switching to other more hyped moisturizers but this works so well already that I always just stick with it PURITO - Centella Green Level Unscented Sun SPF50+ I admit, I almost never used sunscreen until I got this. . . but this is super light, never greasy, absorbs in a minute tops, and does the job! Happy holidays and this is just a reminder that you’re awesome no matter what ur skin is deciding to do at the moment. That’s something I wish I remembered more often :))

AM, PM, Occasional, and New Products!
I’ve been simplifying my day to day routines and working in “specialty” products on occasion, to save time and money. AM (Alllll about quick and easy!) Andalou Apricot Cleansing Milk Cerave PM Moisturizer Nivea Super Watery Gel SPF PM Cerave Hydrating Cleanser (or Andalou if I want more richness) EB5 Anti Aging Toner Curology (clindamyacin 1%, tretinoin .04%, azelaic acid 7%) Hadalabo Hyalruronic Acid Illiyoon Ceramide Moisturizer Acure Blue Tansy Oil Rotating Products Makeup Removal: Farmacy Green Clean Cleansing Balm (I know some of you swear by the double cleanse, but it’s typically too irritating for me daily) Exfoliating (in place of EB5): Dermalogica Daily Microfoliant, Dr. Dennis Gross Alpha Beta Ultra Gentle Peel (great when I feel a breakout coming on), Alpha H Liquid Gold (for when I’m feeling super lazy—I cleanse, use this, and slap on a thick moisturizer...that’s it!) Laneige Water Sleeping Mask: Great top coat to seal in extra moisture Cicaplast Baume 5: Also a great top coat, more occlusive and I love when I’m feeling super dry Acne Spot Treatment: Kate Somerville EradiKate reduces size and redness overnight. Tends to pull off the whiteheads and cause bleeding & thus scarring when removed the next morning, so use with caution Holy Grail: Naturopathica Alpine Rose Recovery Serum. This is a 7-day treatment serum that reduces redness, plumps you up, and helps bump up the glow. For use 3-4 times a year at most, so would be great to use if you have an event you want to look extra glowy for. (Who goes anywhere nowadays? I can dream...) New Products (both recommended by my skincare group. Will update) Stratia Liquid Gold: Additional evening moisture layer Stratia Rewind: evening moisture layer, supposed to help with redness too

Budget Foam Cleansers for Sensitive Skin🌿
⁣We all know it, when it comes to fae washes for acne-prone skin, the gentler the better. People who suffer from acne have inherently inflamed and sensitized skin, which means we need to treat it gently and load it up with moisture to avoid more breakouts. ⁣ ⁣ In this post, I’d like to share my top two budget-friendly cleansers (both under $10) that I find work best for my skin.⁣ _____________________________________ ⁣ VANICREAM - Gentle Facial Cleanser Vanicream Liquid Basic Cleansing Facial Cleanser helps remove makeup and excess skin oils without drying your skin. It is free of dyes, lanolin, masking fragrance, parabens, formaldehyde, and other preservatives.⁣ ⁣ Awesome gentle and effective cleanser for oily/combo & sensitive skin. This cleanser does what it says. Works as intended and does not strip my damaged skin barrier. Instead, leaves it balanced, and calm. Has a minimal ingredients list and one pump will foam enough for the whole face. This bottle lasts me about 4-5 months with regular use. ⁣ 𝐏𝐫𝐢𝐜𝐞: $8.99 for 8oz ⁣ ⁣ 𝐈𝐧𝐠𝐫𝐞𝐝𝐢𝐞𝐧𝐭𝐬: Purified Water, Glycerin, Coco-Glucoside, Sodium Cocoyl Glycinate, Acrylates Copolymer, Caprylyl Glycol, Mica, Sodium Chloride, 1, 2-Hexanediol, Titanium Dioxide, Sodium Hydroxide, Disodium Edta⁣ ⁣___________________________________ HADALABO - Deep Moisturizing Whip Foam Reliable and no-nonsense -- Hada Labo has been one of my top brands for years, especially as I'm someone who is constantly searching for budget-friendly products with top knotch formulations. Aside from their iconic Hyaluronic Lotion Moist, I have also really enjoyed their Foaming Cleanser. This no-fuss cleanser features a watery texture and self-foaming pump that delivers just the right amount of foamy cleanser. I definitely expected this to be drying even for my oily skin at first but I think a lot would agree this is a lil more hydrating compared to other foaming face washes. With that said however, I would always just recommend this for normal to oily skin. It may be less ideal or sometimes can still be harsh for those with dry skin. If you have oily skin and suffer from acne, definitely pick this up! ⁣ 𝐏𝐫𝐢𝐜𝐞: $9.99 for 160ml⁣ ⁣ 𝐈𝐧𝐠𝐫𝐞𝐝𝐢𝐞𝐧𝐭𝐬: Water, PEG-8, Butylene Glycol, Polyglyceryl-10 Laurate, TEA-Cocoyl Alaninate, Sodium Cocoamphoacetate, Glycerin, Disodium Cocoyl Glutamate, Hydroxypropyltrimonium Hyaluronate, Methylparaben, Sodium Acetylated Hyaluronate, Sodium Cocoyl Glutamate, Starch Hydroxypropyltrimonium Chloride, Succinic Acid.

Here’s how to take care of oily acne-prone skin☺
Most of us acne patients suffer from oily skin. Excess sebum produced by our skin may clog pores which eventually leads to acne. In this post, I’d like to share my top tricks in controlling my oily acne-prone skin and hopefully be able to help even at least one of you 🙈☺️⁣ ⁣ 𝐓𝐡𝐞 𝐃𝐎𝐬: ⁣ ⁣ 1. 𝐃𝐎 𝐰𝐚𝐬𝐡 𝐲𝐨𝐮𝐫 𝐟𝐚𝐜𝐞 𝐚𝐭 𝐥𝐞𝐚𝐬𝐭 𝐭𝐰𝐢𝐜𝐞 𝐚 𝐝𝐚𝐲. This has always worked for me. Sometime before, I tried not washing my face in the AM and it just made me so much oilier during the day resulting in more breakouts. Importantly, remember to wash your face every after workout too. Sweat combined with sebum is a perfect recipe for acne and skin irritation.⁣ ⁣ 𝟐. 𝐃𝐎 𝐮𝐬𝐞 𝐚 𝐠𝐞𝐧𝐭𝐥𝐞 𝐟𝐨𝐚𝐦𝐢𝐧𝐠 𝐟𝐚𝐜𝐞 𝐰𝐚𝐬𝐡. Although salicylic acid cleanser helped tremendously in my teenage years, it isn’t necessarily beneficial for me now that my skin is more dehydrated and my skin barrier compromised. Salicylic acid or benzoyl peroxide cleansers may still help on days when you’re feeling extra oily but resist using it daily. Use a gentle foaming face wash from Vanicream, Hada Labo, Cerave.⁣ ⁣ 𝟑. 𝐃𝐎 𝐮𝐬𝐞 𝐚 𝐦𝐨𝐢𝐬𝐭𝐮𝐫𝐢𝐳𝐞𝐫 𝐝𝐚𝐢𝐥𝐲. You can have oily skin and dehydrated skin at the same time. Because your face is not hydrated enough, your glands may overcompensate for the lack of moisture by producing more oils. Do not ever skip this step! Your best option is to use an oil-free, non-comedogenic moisturizer like Paula’s Choice Clear Oil-Free Moisturizer, Neutrogena oil-free and hydroboost gel cream, and if you have rosacea too, use procure rosacare gel. ⁣ ⁣ 𝟒. 𝐃𝐎 𝐚𝐩𝐩𝐥𝐲 𝐬𝐮𝐧 𝐩𝐫𝐨𝐭𝐞𝐜𝐭𝐢𝐨𝐧. SPF 30+ or up should always be worn especially for oily skin. Unprotected sun exposure can lead to more acne flare-ups. Zinc oxide and titanium dioxide mineral sunscreens are your top options. Zinc doesn’t only protect skin but also helps calm irritated skin. My favorites are Elta MD physical and Purito Water, Clinique Broad Spectrum, .. If you like chemical sunscreen better, I highly recommend Eucerin and Sun BUm. ⁣ ⁣ 𝟓. 𝐃𝐎 𝐮𝐬𝐞 𝐭𝐨𝐩𝐢𝐜𝐚𝐥 𝐭𝐫𝐞𝐚𝐭𝐦𝐞𝐧𝐭𝐬. Keratolytic ingredients such as benzoyl peroxide, salicylic acid that are available over-the-counter can be your best friends when used properly. It is important to note that when using an active, stick to a minimal skincare routine to reap the best results and use of one acne treatment at a time is a must, especially if you’re just starting out. If you have moderate to severe acne, I would go for Differin Adapalene gel or a retinoid such as Retin-A and Atralin. Retinoids may not only get rid of your acne but also heal and renew your skin in the deeper layers. ⁣ ⁣ 𝐓𝐡𝐞 𝐃𝐎𝐍’𝐓𝐬:⁣ ⁣ 𝟏. 𝐃𝐎𝐍'𝐓 𝐨𝐯𝐞𝐫-𝐞𝐱𝐟𝐨𝐥𝐢𝐚𝐭𝐞. Over-exfoliating is probably something we’re all once obsessed with. Unfortunately, this habit can only lead us to a damaged skin barrier thus, compromising our skin’s own ability to heal itself. It’s best to limit the use of exfoliating ingredients twice a week when starting or one exfoliating acid/active at a time once a day after your skin has adjusted. ⁣ ⁣ 𝟐. 𝐃𝐎𝐍’𝐓 𝐮𝐬𝐞 𝐩𝐫𝐨𝐝𝐮𝐜𝐭𝐬 𝐰𝐢𝐭𝐡 𝐟𝐫𝐚𝐠𝐫𝐚𝐧𝐜𝐞. I say it all the time, fragrance in skincare is BAD and does nothing good for you. The use of fragrance in cosmeceutical products is unregulated and companies are not required to disclose all components used in their products. The formulation may have a lot of unknown toxic chemicals that can be harmful to you. Without knowing and often initially not externally evident, fragrance can irritate your skin deep down, cause toxic hormonal effects, and may even cause cancer. Fragrance is a NO-NO for everyone and most especially for acne-prone people or those with other skin diseases. I have suffered the consequences of my bad choices myself. Do yourself a favor and ditch your fragrance-containing products too. ⁣ ⁣ 𝟑. 𝐃𝐎𝐍’𝐓 𝐮𝐬𝐞 𝐚𝐥𝐜𝐨𝐡𝐨𝐥-𝐛𝐚𝐬𝐞𝐝 𝐩𝐫𝐨𝐝𝐮𝐜𝐭𝐬. Certain types of alcohol such as ethanol, isopropyl alcohol, and alcohol denat. are extremely drying and irritating especially to acne-prone skin. ⁣ ⁣ 𝟒. 𝐃𝐎𝐍’𝐓 𝐬𝐥𝐞𝐞𝐩 𝐢𝐧 𝐲𝐨𝐮𝐫 𝐦𝐚𝐤𝐞𝐮𝐩. Always make sure you wash away all makeup and accumulated dirt on the face before you sleep.⁣ ⁣ 𝟓. 𝐃𝐎𝐍’𝐓 𝐬𝐥𝐞𝐞𝐩 𝐨𝐧 𝐝𝐢𝐫𝐭𝐲 𝐩𝐢𝐥𝐥𝐨𝐰𝐜𝐚𝐬𝐞𝐬 𝐚𝐧𝐝 𝐬𝐡𝐞𝐞𝐭𝐬. Change your pillowcases frequently. I always make sure I sleep on new ones every week. ⁣ ⁣ 𝟔. 𝐃𝐎𝐍’𝐓 𝐤𝐞𝐞𝐩 𝐭𝐨𝐮𝐜𝐡𝐢𝐧𝐠 𝐲𝐨𝐮𝐫 𝐟𝐚𝐜𝐞. Picking at your acne can only add dirt and germs to your skin and may cause more issues. Frequently wash your hands if you’re an absent-minded face rubber or cover the pimples with acne patches. ⁣ ⁣ 𝐌𝐲 𝐨𝐰𝐧 𝐜𝐮𝐫𝐫𝐞𝐧𝐭 𝐬𝐢𝐦𝐩𝐥𝐞 𝐀𝐌 𝐫𝐨𝐮𝐭𝐢𝐧𝐞 (𝐨𝐢𝐥𝐲 𝐚𝐜𝐧𝐞-𝐩𝐫𝐨𝐧𝐞)⁣ 𝐂𝐥𝐞𝐚𝐧𝐬𝐞𝐫 - VANICREAM - Gentle Facial Cleanser or CeraVe - Foaming Facial Cleanser For Normal To Oily Skinor HADALABO - Deep Moisturizing Whip Foam 𝐇𝐲𝐝𝐫𝐚𝐭𝐨𝐫 - Neutrogena - Hydro Boost Gel-Cream or The Ordinary - Niacinamide 10% + Zinc 1% 𝐌𝐨𝐢𝐬𝐭𝐮𝐫𝐢𝐳𝐞𝐫+ 𝐒𝐮𝐧𝐬𝐜𝐫𝐞𝐞𝐧 - sun bum - Face Lotion SPF 50 ⁣ 𝐏𝐌 𝐫𝐨𝐮𝐭𝐢𝐧𝐞: ⁣ 𝐂𝐥𝐞𝐚𝐧𝐬𝐞𝐫⁣ 𝐇𝐲𝐝𝐫𝐚𝐭𝐨𝐫 - Neutrogena - Hydro Boost Gel-Cream or Pyunkang Yul - Essence Toner 𝐌𝐨𝐢𝐬𝐭𝐮𝐫𝐢𝐳𝐞𝐫 - PROcure - Rosacare Gel 𝐓𝐫𝐞𝐚𝐭𝐦𝐞𝐧𝐭: janssen - Retino-A 0.05% Tretinoin Cream

My Fav Serums 🤩
These are the serums I use every day! I honestly don’t use too many different skin products when it comes to serums because these work really well for me already! The first one is The Ordinary Niacinamide 10% + Zinc 1% serum which I use during the night time. It definitely helps with oil control since I feel like when I stopped using it, my oil production in the T zone was crazy throughout the day. I will say though, I feel like it gives me these tiny little pimples all over my face. I’m not really sure how to fix it though so if anyone has any advice or tips, feel free to comment! The second serum is the Gokujyun Hyaluronic Acid serum. This is the staple in my routine. I use it day and night and it’s really gentle on my skin. I think it’s labeled as a lotion, but it’s actually a toner. Personally, I think it’s too light to use as a toner so I kind of treat it as a serum. I use it after the Paula’s Choice 2% BHA liquid exfoliant and I heard you’re supposed to have slightly damp skin before using hyaluronic acid. The texture of it is really watery btw!!! You also need a lot less than you would think. When I first started, I would use way too much, but a little goes a long way! The last serum is the Clean Skin Club Vitamin C Brightening Booster. It has watermelon, green tea, and pineapple and it’s pretty thick. It has a slight scent but nothing too strong to handle. I like to use this after my toner and after the hyaluronic acid serum. I feel like some of the other Vitamin C serums I’ve tried in the past were way too strong so this mixture is perfect for me! Also, if you end up using this remember to use SPF afterwards!! Some Vitamin C serums are also grainy but the texture of this is creamy and smooth! #CheriePartner

WHY I LOVE TONER
I LOVE TONERS. Here’s the thing about toner - it’s a complete MYTH that you need one for the purposes of rebalancing the pH of skin after washing your face. That’s ancient advice (marketing, really) from when pH-balanced liquid facial cleansers hadn’t been invented yet and people used alkaline soap bars to cleanse their faces. Toners these days serve different purposes, but the two most common categories I see are exfoliating toners and hydrating toners. Today, I’m going to talk about my favourite type - hydrating ones. I started using a hydrating toner about six years ago and I haven’t looked back. In fact, I still use the same brand today - Hada Labo. My skin is oily, but around six years ago I started using Differin for my acne. The side effects of this include skin that dehydrates easily, so I needed to start using a product that helped that. My research pointed me to Hada Labo toners, and the first one I tried was the Hada Labo Shirojyun Toner. To use a hydrating toner like this, all you need to do is pat in a small amount until fully absorbed. If you want to, you can use it for the ‘7 Skins Method’ a method where you pat in 7 layers of toner. It’s easy to do because toners are usually very watery products. This is my favourite thing about toner - the bottles are larger and you can pat in more layers of products, so they’re MORE effective and better value than applying a single layer of hydrating serum. Right now I’m trialling the Mizon toner and I actually don’t like it that much - it’s just ok. Same with the Hada Labo Premium Gokujyun Toner. I love the Isntree Toner, it's the most like the original Hada Labo toners that I've tried Do you use hydrating toners?

I’m in love with this gel cream
I purchased the HADALABO - Gokujyun Hyaluronic Acid Cream from my local Japanese grocery store for about $17, and I cannot stop obsessing over how great the texture feels. It feels light and airy without compromising moisture. HADA LABO has a lot of great products that work so well for my skin, but this particular one has been one of my favorite daytime moisturizers because it’s lightweight, moisturizing, and non-greasy. It almost has a milky cream texture that the skin just soaks up for a supple and dewy look. It hydrates and calms my combo/oily skin perfectly for the day ahead! This cream has really great ingredients like glycerin, sodium hyaluronic, and squalane, however it does contain some preservatives that may cause skin sensitivity so beware of that! I personally don’t have issues with it but it’s still best to perform a patch test first. What’re your thoughts on this product? What other daytime moisturizers have worked for you?

First impression of TO Hyaluronic Acid serum WOW
I just have to say... WOW!! I’m currently suffering from a second purge from my Tretinoin or something, with new pimples, random bumps, and lots of stinging. I can’t tell exactly what is going on with my skin but I’ve been prescribed some pretty irritating products for my acne and I think they’ve been destroying my skin barrier. I’ve been using dear, klairs - Fundamental Watery Oil Drop and HADALABO - Gokujyun Hyaluronic Acid Cream to moisturize, but it didn’t seem to be quite enough. So I decided to buy The Ordinary - Hyaluronic Acid 2% + B5 to boost that hydration and I have got to say, it’s AMAZING!! I used it last night and this morning, and I can already see and feel improvements in my skin. The irritation went down a bunch, and my normally oily skin is looking more dewy and glowy! One note about this serum is that it’s best to apply it to damp skin and it’s best to tap/press it into your skin so that it’s fully absorbed. Tap it into your skin, add a moisturizer on top, and enjoy the benefits! I also got The Ordinary - Niacinamide 10% + Zinc 1%with this order but I’m a little hesitant to use it now because I’ve read the zinc can be a little irritating for some people. And since my skin is already irritated right now, I don’t want to risk it getting more irritated, but as soon as the irritation calms, I will post my review for it! Given the results I got from the hyaluronic acid serum, I’m really excited to try the niacinamide serum!

🌞good morning glow🌞
Hello beauties! I wanted to share my morning routine with you all now that I *finally*seem to have one down. My nighttime routine uses a lot of actives but I like to keep it relatively simple in the morning and it has paid off! 🌊LA ROCHE-POSAY - Toleriane Hydrating Gentle Face Cleanser I feel like every skin care junkie has a part of the routine that they find themselves drawn to product-wise and mine is definitely the cleansing step! I use many cleansers but I wanted to share this one since it’s my favorite for the morning. This one is incredible, a short, amazing ingredient list, a nice milky consistency that leaves my skin feeling refreshed. Who could ask for more to start the day? 🦋cosmedica SKINCARE - Pure Hyaluronic Acid Serum To prevent stripping my skin in the morning and compromising my repairs from the night before, I always make sure to apply some hyaluronic acid immediately after cleansing. For the price and it’s efficacy it’s definitely worth it, however it’s not the most luxurious hyaluronic acid product out there! ✨The Ordinary - Niacinamide 10% + Zinc 1% Liquid. Gold. I upgraded to the 2 oz bottle because I have become obsessed with this product in the last six months. I have noticed less redness throughout the day, less sebum production in my T-zone, and a gradual evening of my skin texture. I can not live without this product! 🌸HADALABO - Tokyo Skin Plumping Gel Cream I had just run out of my Honest Beauty hydrogel cream so I sort of got this one on a whim after watching a Dr. Dray video. I can not get enough of this product! The gel texture for the morning is exactly what my skin craves and yet the gel doesn’t just feel like water, it blends like a cream. My skin instantly looks refreshed and plump after applying. I am excited to see the long term effects! 🌱e.l.f. - All the Feels Facial Oil All hail cannabis! I was absolutely floored by this product. This was *another* impulse buy but for $12 I didn’t feel too guilty about it and now I’m so happy I sprung for it! I love using this on top of my moisturizer in the colder mornings for a little something extra. This sinks in so nicely and keeps me hydrated all day while delivering a beautiful glow to my skin. I’ll be keeping this around all fall and winter long! 🎍PURITO - Centella Green Level Unscented Sun SPF50+ There were days before this sunscreen, and there are the days now. This product has been such a game changer in how I look at sunscreen. I used to abhor putting on sunscreen because it felt thick and pasty and made me look like Casper the ghost. This one sinks in like a moisturizer and leaves absolutely no white cast. This is my second bottle and I’ll be looking forward to purchasing this again OR trying the #PURITO - Comfy Water Sun Block[products]# next! That’s my morning routine! Thanks y’all 💕✨🥰

The Hada Labo Premium Lotion f
The Hada Labo Premium Lotion features 5 different molecular weights of hyaluronic acid, which is beneficial as different molecular weights can penetrate to different depths of skin. With it’s light gel texture and intense plumping abilities, this easily outperforms all HA serums I’ve tried in the past. ⁣ ⁣ The Hada Labo Perfect Gel contains three types of hyaluronic acid: regular, super, and nano, as well as ceramides and squalane. These ingredients work as humectants, drawing water and moisture into the skin, while the presence of the occlusive ingredient dimethicone seals the moisture in, preventing trans epidermal water loss. ⁣ ⁣ However, Hada Labo claim that this gel contains collagen, and whilst collagen may seem an attractive ingredient, the molecule is too large to penetrate the skin and be fully absorbed. The inclusion of collagen isn’t fully idle, as it does help to retain some moisture whilst it sits on top of the skin. ⁣ ⁣ Both products have become staples in my routine, due to their ability to bind water to the skin and seal it there. They also work incredibly well as ‘basics’, working around any actives that I use. ⁣

Hydrating toner
Hydrating toner
HADALABO - Rohto Hadalabo Gokujun Hyaluronic Lotion Moist This is an intense hydrating toner from Hada Labo that has hyaluronic acid in it. It replenishes moisture and locks it in. This is for everyone and extremely popular in Japan. There they call this a lotion but in western terms this is what we call a toner. It’s quite a thick one compared to others, as the normal toners I’ve tried are close to water consistency. This was my holy grail toner for a really long time! It’s super hydrating and really helped my skin to become what it was when it was at its best. You wake up with supple and soft skin every day. If you’re diving into j-beauty I truly recommend this one! It’s super affordable as well and Hada Labo is such a great brand.

If you asked me on which produ
If you asked me on which product I have used to help restore my damaged skin barrier; an aftermath of several episodes of allergic reactions, I would answer AHA treatments coupled with Hyaluronic Acid-powered hydrating toners and one of them is this hadalabo Gokujyun (Hydrating Lotion) deeply hydrates the skin as it contains different molecular sizes of Hyaluronic Acid that penetrate skin layers on different levels, helps in balancing the overall moisture balance and prepare the skin to absorb the rest of my skincare products. . This toner can be used as first step after cleansing routine or when in need; 3 to 4 drops on thin cotton pads and place on dry facial area as point masks to have a quick hydrating treats. . Surely you guys saw my post previously; I have placed the toners in fridge these days as chilled toner is such a saviour in our current hot weather 🔥 As I actually have normal to oily skin, I do enjoyed the Light version of this toner too; sometimes layering it several times before applying my sunscreen of the day and I'm good to go!

The best hydrating toner - hada labo!
The best hydrating toner - hada labo!
Hada labo is king when it comes to hyaluronic acid. Their goku jyun “lotion” is more of a hydrating toner (which they call lotions in Asia). It contains multiple weights of hyaluronic acid and holds hydration in the skin. It’s also a huge bottle and lasts forever. I use this after exfoliants in the PM and after vitamin C in the AM. Nothing plumps up my skin and leaves it bouncy throughout the day quite like this!

HUMECTANTS⁣
⁣
Humectants are h
HUMECTANTS⁣ ⁣ Humectants are hygroscopic, meaning they draw moisture from their surroundings. By forming hydrogen bonds with molecules of water, humectants retain hydration by preventing trans-epidermal water loss. If applied onto dry skin, these ingredients may actually pull the moisture out of the skin, leading to dehydration. Thus, I prefer to apply humectants onto slightly wet skin, in order to grab onto the water and slow it from evaporating.⁣ ⁣ Whilst some prefer to apply skincare in order of viscosity, i’ve been applying The Inkey List Polyglutamic Acid, followed by this Hado Labo Perfect Gel onto wet skin in the evening, and then waiting around 10 minutes before applying treatment steps such as acids, or retinoids. After this, I apply heavier treatments, such as emulsions, occlusives or oils. ⁣ ⁣ Humectants may include: Hyaluronic Acid, Polyglutamic Acid, Butylene Glycol, Glycerin, Collagen, Sodium PCA⁣ ⁣ ⁣
