Acid Toner: One Empty one Newbie
Empty: PAULA'S CHOICE - SKIN PERFECTING 2% BHA LIQUID EXFOLIANT I really loved this toner, it provides some really good exfoliation and completely transforms the texture of my skin overnight (especially compared to the one that I used to have which was in the old bottle). I had this mini version which I finished when I went on vacation in December. I thankfully have two full-sized backups! Newbie: REN CLEAN SKINCARE - Ready Steady Glow Daily AHA Toner I started using this one when my mini PC toner ran out and while I find that this one tingles on my skin more than the PC one, I don’t find it to be as smoothing on my skin. This one features an AHA acid blend which works mostly on the surface layer of the skin. Which one do I prefer? At the end of the day, I really prefer the Paula’s Choice one because it is much more effective and ultimately cheaper than the Ren version, but the Ren version would be better suited for someone who doesn’t need a more intense physical exfoliation.

BHA Battle! Which is better?
A BHA (beta-hydroxy acid, also known as salicylic acid) is a known ingredient to help unclog pores, fight acne, reduce pore appearance, and dissolve oil. I have extremely acne prone skin and I fight texture constantly (small comedones, blackheads, and sometimes cysts). I first picked up the CosRX BHA Power Liquid because of the price (believe it was around $20). I thought it did a decent job but I think it fell short unfortunately. It has plant derived salicylic acid, so I’m not sure if that is where it loses it‘s potency (claims it has 4%, which is quite high). Paula’s Choice was having a sale and I thought, well why not? I picked up my first bottle of the CULT FAVE (I now know why) 2% BHA Liquid Exfoliant. Hats off to you Paula’s Choice 🎩 I honestly don’t know how they did it, but this is the most effective acne/texture fighting product I’ve EVER tried. It has 2% Salicylic Acid (BHA obvs), green tea extract, and some awesome hydrating ingredients. The application is a little tricky. Funny enough it is a liquid but when applied it is a little oily. I usually spot treat and use my fingers or use a cotton round and PAT it onto my skin. This helps ensure I’m not wasting this precious gold and push the product into the skin. It is r e a l l y hyped up, but for good reason. This stuff works. I loved it so much after a weeks use (saw impressive improvement in my texture), that I picked up a second bottle. I’m sold. I love this stuff. I RECOMMEND the PC all day!!! PAULA'S CHOICE - SKIN PERFECTING 2% BHA LIQUID EXFOLIANT COSRX - Cosrx BHA Blackhead Power Liquid

Need a boost?
The PAULA'S CHOICE - Resist 10% Niacinamide Booster is a watery serum with 10% vitamin B3, also known as niacinamide, that claims to dramatically improve uneven skin tone and refine the appearance of skin tone, pores size, and fine lines. I’m honestly kinda skeptical of any product that can claim to reduce pore size, but in terms of improving texture and skin tone, I do think this product follows through. This is advertised as a booster product, meaning that you can either use it on its own or mix a few drops of it in with another product. I think this is a great way to customize your routine! Since this is very watery and I don’t love using watery serums on their own, I’ve been mixing about 3 drops of this in with my essence every morning and night. With several weeks of twice daily use, my overall skin tone does look brighter and I’ve noticed that the texture of my skin—especially on my forehead—looks a lot smoother. I used the niacinamide + zinc serum from The Ordinary for a while a few years ago, but I stopped because I wasn’t seeing any results. I’m pleased to have a different experience with this product. 10% is a pretty hefty percentage, especially considering that you only need about 4-5% to see results. Paula’s Choice also has a 20% niacinamide booster, which is a little crazy to me! I don’t really know if you’d see a major difference in results between that product and this one, but I guess I can’t really say without trying it. This product retails at $44 for .67oz, which is pricey in my opinion. It has given me results, but I’m debating whether it’s worth repurchasing. I think after I run out I’ll probably see how my skin does without it before making a decision.

PAULA'S CHOICE - Resist C15 Super Booster PAULA'S CHOICE - Resist 10% Niacinamide Booster I bought these @paulaschoice boosters for their versatility. They’re called boosters for a reason. You can use the products as it is or incorporate them into your serums or moisturizers. These products are on the more expensive side but you are essentially paying for quality. Both the Niacinamide and the VitC ingredient land second on the ingredient list next to water. Both include additional antioxidants and humectants in their formula as well. You also just need 4-5 drops of each product to cover your face and neck so your product will last a long time. The VitC booster uses a 15% concentration of Ascorbic acid, which makes it pricier because it is not using a derivative form of VitC. It has Ferulic Acid which enhances the stability of VitC. The product is packaged in an opaque, air restrictive container which helps maintain the stability of the product so it does not oxidize and become ineffective). Benefits of VitC include improving the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, fading hyperpigmentation, and improving the appearance of uneven skin tone. It is an antioxidant so it helps protect against environmental stressors. When used with SPF, it works even better to protect against environmental stressors. The Niacinamide booster is a 10% concentration formula. In addition to the humectants and antioxidants in the formula, it also has ingredients that have skin soothing and skin replenishing properties. There are other cheaper products that exist with 10% Niacinamide concentration, but they do not have the additional ingredients I have mentioned. Benefits of Niacinamide include minimizing the appearance of pores, improve uneven skin tone and texture, reduce fine lines. My thoughts: I started incorporating these products in December. I did not see a change immediately but I persisted and continued to use both religiously. In about a month, I noticed that my face was brighter and my skin tone was more even. Some of my dark spots were slightly lighter. In about two months, I was shocked to notice that the pores on my nose were less visible because it just looked cleaner overall. Some of my dark spots from PIH have faded even more. I can still see some sunspots but maybe these are more stubborn? I don’t think the products helped improve my texture - I find that chemical exfoliants have been more effective in improving my skin texture. I also can’t comment on improving my fine lines and wrinkles as I am lucky enough to not have those yet except for a bit around my eyes. I will continue to use these products religiously and see its ongoing effects on fading dark spots and maintaining my brighter, radiant face! I’ll likely repurchase both products when they empty out!

SKINCARE LINE-UP: RETINOL NIGHT
It’s retinol night! So these products I have grouped together to give me the best results with retinol and prevent any irritation! Background info: I have combination skin that is sometimes dehydrated. My skin is also very tolerant of active ingredients. SKINCEUTICALS - Hydrating B5 Gel My go-to Hyaluronic Acid serum! It’s my favorite hydrating product because the Hyaluronic Acid seriously plumps up the skin and brings hydration to the surface of the skin. I apply a few drops of this on my palms and press into the skin. SKINCEUTICALS - C E Ferulic with 15% L-ascorbic acid Vitamin C serum for skin My favorite Vitamin C/antioxidant serum! It brightens the skin, and boosts the performance of my sunscreen so I make sure to incorporate it into my routine every morning! This formula also includes L-ascorbic acid which is a rich antioxidant ingredient that neutralizes free radicals and protects against oxidative stressors, and Ferulic Acid which has similar benefits, enhances antioxidants and stabilizes the Vitamins C & E. SKINCEUTICALS - RETINOL 0.5 Retinol night cream Retinol! This night cream contains 0.5% pure retinol which helps to promote cell turnover, improves the appearance of lines, wrinkles, discoloration and pores, and reduces breakouts! This particular cream is formulated with a Soothing Complex that calms the skin with Bisabolol and Boswellia Serrata Extract which soothes and comforts the skin. I apply two pea-size amounts on my finger tips, rub them together and press into my skin (focusing on problem areas). VINTNER'S DAUGHTER - Active Botanical Serum This is a powerhouse serum full of botanical oils and extracts that really help the skin. There’s a full list of ingredients on their website but this serum basically heals, balances, fights free-radicals with antioxidants, strengthens with ceramides, nourishes with fatty acids and brightens with vitamins to renew, repair, protect and tone skin. Like what else could I ask for?! I use their push/press method to apply! PAULA'S CHOICE - 10% Azelaic Acid Booster When my skin needs an additional boost I like to mix a tiny bit of this booster into my moisturizer (the next step). Azelaic Acid is amazing for gently exfoliating the skin, unclogging pores and refining skin’s surface. YOUTH TO THE PEOPLE - Adaptogen Deep Moisture Cream with Ashwagandha + Reishi To lock in all the active ingredients in my toners and serums, I love this cream from Youth To The People because it feels thick and nourishing. The key ingredients in this cream include Squalane, Ashwagandha, and Fermented Reishi which together helps boost skin hydration, minimizes risk of clogged pores, reduces visible signs of fatigue and detoxifies and combats signs of aging.

Give your skin a BOOST up💚✨
This is actually the first Paula’s Choice item I have tried. I picked it up at the boxycharm pop up sale 😉. Since I have sensitive skin, I always have issues with certain ingredients flaring up my skin or over drying (which creates both redness and dry flakes 🤢) I started incorporating this into my evening routine at first, and slowly I actually was seeing signs of redness or over drying dull flakes start to heal. So I started using it in the morning as well, and hand to the skincare Gods, this has been my little holy grail for texture and redness💚💚💚✨! Not to mention they’re a CLEAN AND CRUELTY FREE company 😊PAULA'S CHOICE - 10% Azelaic Acid Booster #CheriesConversations

my perfect AM routine
Hi guys!!! Today I am sharing my perfect AM routine. I like testing out different products and different routines, but these four products will ALWAYS be in my arsenal as staples for my normal to oily skin. I’ve been using this exact routine for about a month now, with very little changes to test new things. None of these things upset my rosacea or cause discomfort! My Skin Type: — normal to oily — blemish prone, — some hyperpigmentation/PIE — rosacea Why this is my perfect AM routine: — hydrating — calming/soothing — simple — treats hyperpigmentation Products included: — FIRST AID BEAUTY - Ultra Repair Wild Oat Hydrating Toner — FARMACY - Very Cherry Bright 15% Clean Vitamin C Serum with Acerola Cherry — Krave - Oat So Simple Water Cream — PAULA'S CHOICE - Youth-Extending Daily Hydrating Fluid Mini Reviews: — Wild Oat Hydrating Toner: perfect in my AM routine when I need some extra hydration AND to tone, but don’t wanna dry my skin out. I usually apply this with my hands, after I wash them, and just kind of pat the milky toner in. It’s a great layering product, and I can layer a few pats of this in before going in with my moisturizer. I make sure to bring this down to my neck and chest cause I don’t wanna leave those out! I am nowhere near empty because a little is a lot, but I would totally repurchase this for my am routine when I run out. $22 for 6oz, which is kind of a steal. — Very Cherry Bright vitamin c serum: first, it smells like cherries; but it’s not overly sweet and it fades quickly upon application! I have noticed a reduction of breakouts since I started using this, and and my skin tone overall looks brighter! It’s helping fade my hyperpigmentation and I’m on my second bottle of this already. Doesn’t irritate my skin as some VITC’s do, but is kind of soothing. It has kind of a juicy texture, not watery but not thick either. I know it’s a little pricy but I will probably exclusively use this for the long haul. — Oat So Simple Moisturizer: with oats and squalane, it’s hard to go wrong with this moisturizer. Again, here I go with the oats; they are hydrating and soothing and so calming. This moisturizer is perfect for my normal to oily skin for the day time, as it’s a water cream and not very thick. I will occasionally use an oil with this if my skin is dry, but this and the rest of my routine do a pretty good job at hydrating! — Youth Extending Daily Hydrating Fluid: my holy grail sunscreen. It’s THIN, so thin, so watery. It layers on nicely and plays well with the rest of my routine, and adds a bit of hydration as well. It has a slight blurring effect, meaning my pores look less defined when I use this. It’s SPF50 which is exactly what I need in the Florida sun. This works well with any makeup I put on top, from tinted moisturizers to sheer tints and foundations.

SPF all day
PAULA'S CHOICE - Youth-Extending Daily Hydrating Fluid Retails for 33 USD x this is a super lightweight, watery sunscreen that of course protects your precious skin from the sun! x the texture is really interesting, second photo for reference. It’s very watery and feels so nice on the skin since it feels like nothing. Also, it’s so reminiscent since it smells like summers from long ago. x I got this a few months ago over the summer because I saw so many people rave about it and I love SPF, so I knew this was going to be good. x I usually have criteria when it comes to SPF, it needs to be lightweight, high SPF and cosmetically pleasant which this passed that! x i love using this especially on days when I don’t wear any makeup. It leaves behind a healthy glow but a satin finish, and knowing that I’m also protecting my skin makes me happy. It works well with my other products during the day time and I’ve never had any adverse effects. x as someone who is big on SPF, I would highly recommend this or even any sunscreen in general! I think it’s pretty decently priced and the formula and finish make it so worth it anyways. I know a lot of people tend to shy away from sunscreen because a lot of them are honestly just kind of gross and feel so suffocating on the skin. It’s important to find one you love and I think so many would feel that way about this one. x my rating is a 5/5 :)

HYDRATION 💦
I am currently on acutaine due to genetic acne and wanted to share the products that I have been using to keep my skin feeling hydrated during this time of intense dehydration! 💖 First product is PAULA'S CHOICE - Resist Anti-Ageing Omega+ Complex Serum which has just worked wonders for my skin barrier. It soaks into the skin so well, leaving it soft and hydrated. Second product is PEACH & LILY - Glass Skin Refining Serum which is another serum that is super hydrating! A lot of the times I will use both of these serums together when my skin is extra dry! Next is BEAUTYBIO - The Radiance Brightening Vitamin E + Rosehip Seed Facial Oil which has been my go to facial oil for weeks! This oil just feels amazing on the skin, sinks in really well but does not make the skin feel overly greasy, it just brings back natural oils! To cleanse I have been using HOLI FROG - Tashmoo Water Lily Nourishing Milky Wash which has left my skin feeling soft, however sometimes when using in the shower, it can leave the skin feeling a little bit dry but outside of the shower it works like a gem! To moisturize I have been using both DRUNK ELEPHANT - Protini Polypeptide Moisturizer which has been my saving grace (but I am now out of it because it was only a trial size 💔) and FIRST AID BEAUTY - Ultra Repair Face Moisturizer which has also helped my skin feeling moisturized! I have other products that I will also use in my routine but these are the main products I will use for my dry skin 💖

Serum Skin Cocktail
It’s been a about a month since my vanity came together and I finally settled in to it! I think I need some art but that will come soon! Maybe I’ll start a vanity series? Anyway for now it’s back to skincare reviews. Im I love with this skin cocktail. I describe this as my vitamin shot for my skin. First up we have the Triple Algae Sheild. It contains red, green and brown algae to create a protective shield from environmental aggressors and pollution, glutathione prevents oxidative damage and the grape polyphenols help to protect from free radicals. I love it for its help with protecting my skin barrier. Next up the Berry Serum is antioxidant heaven. Antioxidants are protective against environmental aggressors, help to repair, and help preserve youthful skin. My skin eats this up YUMMY! Finally we have the Omega Serum gifted to me by PC. Honestly when they asked me about my skin type I was expecting them to send me something different, I didn’t know about this line from them and now that I have it I cannot live without it. Their website describes it as, “Concentrated levels of omega fatty acids help replenish dull, dehydrated skin, revive a beautifully smooth, supple feeling, plus visibly soften the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.” Ya girl is approaching 30 and I need to stay looking ageless and this has been so major for me. You guys know I’m all about nourishing my skin, this is so essential to me. Thankyou to @paulaschoice for sending the Omega Serum to me and for supporting me.

Niacinamide Staples
Do you love Niacinamide?? ✨💕 I have these staples in my routine and I wanted to give my thoughts on. @paulaschoice skin balancing pore reducing toner and @deciem @theordinary Niacinamide 10% + Zinc 2% solution. 😍💕The Ordinary - Niacinamide 10% + Zinc 1% Niacinamide is my absolute favorite ingredient and I love it along with my Glycolic acid. Is there any one ingredient that you love so much?? Let me know in the comments ⬇ ❤ @deciem 👉 Claims: Niacinamide (vitamin B3) reduces the appearance of skin blemishes and congestion. A high 10 percent concentration of this vitamin is supported in the formula by zinc PCA to balance visible aspects of sebum activity. My thoughts: It is the best product and ingredient so far. It is a staple in my routine since a long time now. I don't remember ever thinking of not using this one ever. Love how it brightens and tightens my skin. My pores miraculously get less visible and it creates that shield of glow on skin. I simply love it. It is safe to use, non-irritating and effective even for sensitive skin types. It tingles a tiny bit in certain areas of face when applied but that tingling sensation goes away in few moments. @paulaschoice Skin balancing Pore reducing toner 👉PAULA'S CHOICE - Pore-Reducing Toner Claims : SKIN BALANCING Pore-Reducing Toner helps balance skin with antioxidants and hydrating ceramides, making oily areas less noticeable and skin more even, smooth, moisturized, and protected. It is an essential step in any skincare routine to renew skin after cleansing. Can also help remove the last traces of makeup My thoughts: It does an amazing job. I noticed a smoother and more even skin using this toner. This is almost watery and gets absorbed in skin so quickly. I've been loving this even in daytime, before applying my other skincare. Love it. . . . . . . . . . .

Skin-Balancing Line helps reduce oil like a pro!
As the winter gets colder and my skin gets drier, I have not been using this toner as much as I’d like, but I recognize how great it would be if I needed some oil control ASAP! The product: The Skin-Balancing Pore-Reducing Toner from Paulas Choice is supposed to do exactly what it says in the name- help reduce oil and pore size through balancing the skin! It does this with the inclusion of niacinamide as well as a handful of other superstar ingredients. If you’re on the search for a non-stripping oil controlling product, look no further! This one is a watery liquid that quickly absorbs and also helps prep your skin for the rest of your routine. My honest opinion: Though I haven’t been using this one OFTEN lately, I wanted to try it a couple months back when my skin was getting so oily in the hot humid weather. I remember how instantly hydrated + balanced my skin felt upon application and loved that. I am not sure if it would be hydrating enough for dry skin types but it is most definitely not stripping or drying. It didn’t make me break out either which I appreciate! I think it’s worth the price at it comes in a rather big bottle and will last a while. I’d mostly recommend it for oily skin types looking to hydrate + control oil.

🍊 VITAMIN C EMPTY🍊
I love Paulas Choice and I also love a good vitamin c serum. So naturally, I thought I would try this out. It retails for around $45 dollars, and you get under an ounce. The ingredients list is very short and the product is high quality. You will notice on the packaging that this has a recommended shelf life of 3 months. Vitamin C is a very finicky ingredient. So you have to pair it with other ingredients that will help extend the shelf life. I find that this bottle is the perfect size to use up in three months. I love that Paulas choice doesn’t give you more than you can use up before it goes bad. I originally was trying to replace my drunk elephant vitamin c, mainly because it was so expensive. However, I found that they end up being the same amount once you break it down. For me, I really like the other vitamin c serums better, but I think that’s largely due to my dry skin type. I will use a Vitamin C every single morning to help with my pigmentation and I like something a little thicker. This would probably be really great for someone with oily skin that is looking to get into a nice vitamin c that doesn’t feel too heavy on the skin! 🍊PAULA'S CHOICE - Resist C15 Super Booster

PAULA'S CHOICE - Radiance Renewal Mask Product Feature: . 🧴 @paulaschoice Radiance Renewal Mask: . . This is a sleeping mask that claims to boost a more even-looking skin tone, intensify hydration, and smoothen the surface of the skin. . I wouldn’t say it helped even out my skin tone or smoothed out my skin but it most definitely kept it extra hydrated! The texture is thicker and creamier than other sleeping masks I’ve used. I know this product has done its job of hydrating and sealing in moisture the next morning because I can still feel a silky layer come off when I wash my face. Because of its rich formula, I think this would be great for someone who has really dry skin! This product did a great job with my dry skin in the winter time but it’ll definitely be too rich for me in the summer time.

PaulasChoice Radiance Renewal Mask! Despite using this more or less on the daily for 2 years, I still haven’t reviewed this staple! 💸 Cost: £35/$36 for 50ml/1.fl.oz but Paula’s Choice regularly have 15-20% discounts. 🔍 What it does/Formula: an overnight ‘sleeping mask’ (or can be used as a moisturiser, as I do) featuring brightening agents (Niacinamide, Arbutin, Bearberry Extract and MAP - a stable form of Vitamin C) to target skin tone/pigmentation. The mask comprises of film formers + dimethicone to form a barrier and reduce TEWL and so an excellent option for combo-oily skins. It’s a light gel-cream but does form a decent barrier - not cloying nor is it too rich. It’s very similar to the PC brightening essence in regards to the brightening agents, but in a different format, if you prefer creamier textures. I use both + usually alternate AM/PM. 🔍 How I use it: As a moisturiser, sometimes in the AM + others in PM, as the last step in my routine. In the PM, I’ll mix it with 1-2 drops of a facial oil to negate the slight tackiness. 🔍 Results: I first introduced this 2 years ago when I initially started using Differin, as my usual moisturiser wasn’t nourishing enough to negate the side effects. As with most moisturisers, I was anticipating breakouts but I’ve had great success with this. I saw quite a significant difference when I first introduced this! Partly, (I presume) because redness + dehydration were reduced with the effects of Niacinamide, which I previously didn’t have in my routine, but also because my skin was finally being adequately moisturised (which would happen with any sufficient moisturiser). However, I did continue to see significant improvements beyond the instant gratification, particularly with post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation from acne fading at a much quicker rate. Since then, this simply never fails me. I can use it in every season, day or night. It doesn’t exacerbate oil production, plays well with most products (I find makeup can pill though) + it’s my go-to whenever my skin is throwing a tantrum. I’ve been through probably 8-10 bottles in the past two years, which is a testament to how much I love it.

Second installment of retinol diaries! I kept usage to 2x/week since that was working well, and I wanted to reincorporate acids without overtaxing my skin. Switched to drunkelephant a-passioni*, which I really like so far, though I still mix it with an HA serum. I did skip a week or so when I was sick, so I had a tiny bit of purging when resumed, but otherwise it was fine. Here are some of the products I used: ▪️for chemical exfoliating, I reintroduced DE framboos serum or katesomerville liquid exfolikate* (only one per night), or just some pixi glow tonic to be gentle, on non-retinol nights (combining the two will be my next test). Conversely, I'd skip all treatments (save a hydrating serum) at least once a week to give my skin a rest ▪️ then I tried a resurfacing mask, once every 2-3 weeks, either peachandlily reboot mask or DE babyfacial*, spaced out a day or two from retinol, and my moisture barrier has felt fine! ▪️ continued with lots of hydration, especially in layers like adsorb moist essence*, jurlique herbal recovery serum*, paulaschoice peptide booster*, and olivarrier squalane oil* ▪️ same for cleansing- focused on gentle/nourishing ones like glossier milky jelly cleanser and elemis pro-collagen cleansing balm* ▪️ I also resumed using a vitamin c serum in the mornings, 4-5x/week, recently DE c-firma*, and it's yet to cause any irritation ▪️ SPF all day, every day! The superscreen* by supergoop is great for days with minimal sun exposure (since you have to reapply a lot), or the coola sun silk drops since it wears well under makeup ▪️ after retinol but before moisturizer, I'd supplement with iope cica cream* when needed, great for soothing and hydration

PAULA'S CHOICE - SKIN PERFECTING 2% BHA LIQUID EXFOLIANT 🌺 Paula’s Choice - 2% BHA liquid exfoliant 🌺 this is definitely one of my favourite products to clear my skin. It does exactly what it claims to do - unclogs pores, clears pimples, and evens out skin tone. Within a few days my skin cleared up so nicely. 🌺 with sensitive skin, I was hesitant to try a liquid exfoliant but i’m so glad I did. I would also recommend Paula’s Choice to anyone out there with sensitive skin!

I love Paulas choice as a brand but this product is just straight up overpriced in my opinion. This hyaluronic acid booster has a very light weight gel consistency that absorbs into the skin quickly and honestly reminds me of the drunk elephant serum. This one however is less expensive than the drunk elephant one but still overpriced in my opinion. I do think the one unique thing about this and the drunk elephant one is there gel consistency but I prefer something from the ordinary that is a more serum consistency and comes in at a fraction of the cost for more product. My biggest gripe with this product is that you don’t even get a full ounce around $30 I believe. So I would not recommend thisPAULA'S CHOICE - Hyaluronic Acid Booster, 15ml solely for the price of the product.

This is by far my favorite mineral SPF I’ve ever tried. So I am incredibly sad that it’s already gone and I need it back in my life. PAULA'S CHOICE - Resist Anti-Aging Tinted Moisturizer SPF30 this is a mineral SPF that provides a light tint to it. Which I prefer because I don’t like having a white cast on my mineral sunscreen‘s. I will say that the 10th of this is very light and almost gray tones so if you have a deeper skin this might not look the best on you. However if you fall in the lighter skin category I think that you would absolutely love this. It plays well underneath make up and also I’ve never had any issues with any other pilling up underneath it. It is on the pricier side of mineral sunscreen but I do think that it’s worth it because of how the consistency perform so well with other products and also because it’s very light weight. I also love that it’s not completely a matte finish because I do have dry skin and it still allows some of my natural glow to peek through. I definitely will be re-purchasing this product again soon and I would highly recommend it if you’re in the market for a new tinted mineral sunscreen.
