Favorite Winter moisturizers!!!
COSRX - Oil-Free Ultra-Moisturizing Lotion I’ve been using this a little over a month now. The texture is amazing and it’s very light weight. I was shocked because usually during the winter you would think it’s not thick enough because we all need that extra hydration. It just melt right onto my skin. It contains mainly birch sap and oil free. I recommend for all skin types and what I like about you can use it year round. Purchased at ulta for $24. Jumiso - Have A Good Cream Snail & Centella now this I love love I’ve been using for a week. This moisturizer is very soothing and calming especially if your skin is irritated. It has like a gel/ cream consistency. Like I never seen a moisturizer that is light weight but still moisturize the skin. I will be using this year round. I purchased mines off Amazon for $16-19 dollars. It very hydrating.
Do the seasons affect your skin?
With a change in season comes a different temperature, humidity, wind and UV exposure which can all affect changes which the body needs to adapt to. It makes sense that as the weather changes outside your skin will react differently to it. With lower humidity— what we experience during the cold winter months—our skin’s moisture levels can drop drastically and dryness and a dull skin tone can set in. So what can we do? ￼In general skin tends to be dryer in the winter, oilier (or at least less dry) in the summer. Extremes of temperatures and humidity disrupt the surface of the skin and cause changes in the function of the external skin barrier. ￼After you have found a core skin routine that works for you, it is easier to adapt it to how your skin changes throughout the year. In drier seasons like autumn and winter, make a move to a more hydrating cleanser or balm. You will want to focus on hydration since the low-humidity climate during this time of year can dry out skin and the best place to start is with the first step of your skin care routine. Dermatologists also advise to tone less or even discontinue completely. ￼Whether you have dry skin in the winter, oily skin when the humidity sky rockets, or normal skin year-round, the one thing your skin care routine needs is a hydrating moisturizer. Not moisturizing your skin you risk stripping your skin of oh-so important hydration , which causes overproduction of oils and a gross build up of dead skin cells on your face. ￼When you start seeing the advertisements for everything pumpkin 🎃 spice (yum), Now is the time to pack away the lighter formulas and reach for the more emollient products focused on hydration and to find ways to combat visible evidence of any sun damage that may have occurred over the summer. The best part, most of the skin care routine changes you’ll make for the fall will last you through winter as well! ￼Don’t forget your body!! Apply moisturizer within 60 seconds of coming out of the shower and look for ingredients like glycerin, ceramides and hyaluronic acid. 💦 The biggest thing is pay close attention to your skin. It will start to tell you what it needs and just make sure to adjust accordingly 🍁 Some great moisturizers I recommend for the fall and winter. ￼Cetaphil - DermaControl Oil Control Moisturizer SPF 30 is a good one for oily skin. ￼Jumiso - Have A Good Cream Snail & Centella also for normal to oily skin. ￼boscia - Chia Seed Moisture Cream for dry skin PETER THOMAS ROTH - Water Drench Hyaluronic Cloud Cream normal to dry. Happy Fall Y’all 🎃🍁

Let’s talk about toners!
Why do we need toners? Toners help to remove all of dirt, makeup and oil that your cleanser can leave behind. It is meant to prep your skin for all the products that follow — hydrate, soothe and treat. I have tons of toners in my collection and I have already tried every single one of them so I will be giving them a review individually and rate them on how they work on my skin. Skin type: combination SOLVED SKINCARE - Coconut Water Hibiscus and Rosehip Toner A pretty nice minimal toner. The ingredients are great, it’s gentle and hydrating but sometimes this gets my skin oily so I guess it’s not for my skin type. pixi - Glow Tonic The cult-favorite Pixi Glow Tonic! I have been reviewing this product a lot of times already and yes this is one of the best. This tones my skin so well and leaves it smooth, fresh and glowing. This prevents acne in my skin which I love. I have over 5-6 bottles of this toner. Jumiso - Yes I Am Toner This is a decent toner, not really a fan of this one. It makes my skin so dry but the only thing that makes me like it is of how this reduce the appearance of my pores. SKIN1004 - Madagascar Centella Asiatica PHA Toning Toner This did not work on me maybe because this was the old version, they already upgraded their roner so I’m not really sure if that new toner is better. Using the older version irritated my skin and I had a bad break out upon using it. dear, klairs - Supple Preparation Unscented Facial Toner This is such a great toner. When I emptied my Glow Tonic, I tried several toners until I found this Klairs Supple Preparation Toner. I like products that does not contain any fragrance because I’m sensitive to smell. This works so well on my skin, it feels just like water and I really love how hydrating this is. I would repurchase this product over and over. My skin cleared up upon using this toner. Do you use toners? What’s you favorite?
Playing with Actives ✨
here are some a of my tips when using actives (acids,vitamin C and other s) ￼stronger doesn't mean better. Actives can be irritating for the skin.when present at a high %, it can gives faster results but at the same time,it can do more damage than good when it's too much for your skin to handle. So be cautious when using actives! ￼You don't need to use Actives every night. (it depends of the actives and its %) exemple: klairs freshly juiced vitamin drop is a 5% vitamin c serum. it's gentle enough for everyday use and isn't irritating. overdoing it can result in wrecking your skin barrier, can potential make you break out even more as well as making your skin more sensitive. ￼if your are new to actives, start slow and low to gently build your tolerance before moving to slightly more stronger formula.
K Beauty Sheet Mask that WOWs!
Jumiso - HelloSkin Jumiso Chewy Elasticity Mask PRODUCT This is a sheet mask that features ingredients such as Manuka Honey, evening primrose oil, ceramide complex and beta-glucan, which combined claim to calm and nourish dehydrated and irritated skin. As the name states, the mask is meant to encourage and promote elasticity in the skin, achieved through intense hydration. The sheet mask is made with 100% Cupra (see second photo for close up), and is accompanied with a generous quantity of essence/serum. EXPERIENCE I received this sheet mask in a giveaway, and had stashed it away in my fridge and forgotten about it for a while. A few weeks ago, my skin was feeling super dehydrated and for a quick fix, I grabbed this mask out of my fridge and applied it. And let me tell you...this is AMAZING. The actual sheet is very thin and lightweight, but it holds on to the serum very well. There is a bunch of serum in the bag, so I just kept using it to rehydrate the mask over a period of about an hour. This left my skin so bouncy and radiant, it was almost as if the dryness had never been there at all. I feel like the effect of this mask also lingered longer than most sheet masks I’ve used. I’ve only used this mask one time, but I will definitely repurchase soon! For around $3, this mask is a steal, and I highly recommend it! I give it a rating of 5/5 stars!
Are Sheet Mask Necessary?
Are Sheet Mask Necessary in our Skincare Routine? Each single sheet mask comes with a serum containing ingredients such as hyaluronic acid, ceramides, vitamin C, and more. According to a recent article I read Sheet mask are not a necessary step (answered by dermatologists) if you have serum in your skincare collection but, sheet mask do provide a temporary boost. Especially when you have a special event coming up and you want your skin to look at it’s best. Con- Costly (great deals out there but will be thrown away after each use unlike a bottle of serum), are sheet mask recyclable? (Idk) I still use a sheet mask when I need that extra boost; here are a few of my favorites (no specific order): Jumiso - Jumiso Rich Nourishment Mask ❥Argan oil ❥Ceramides ❥Niacinamide Great for all skin types, very hydrating Sweet CHEF - Kale + Vitamin B Fresh Pressed Sheet Mask ❥Kale ❥Vitamin B ❥Aloe For all skin types, antioxidant and soothing to the skin Knours. - Be Kind to Your Skin Mask ❥Hyaluronic acid ❥Moutan Peony Root Extract ❥Baikal Skullcap Root Extract ❥Organic Oils For dull, dehydrated skin, great on sensitive skin SNOW FOX SKIN CARE - Arctic Breeze Rescue Mask ❥Peppermint ❥Aloe ❥Seaweed For problematic skin, cooling and soothing and great on sensitive skin HIPDOT - Best Friends Mask 4-Pack (Patrick sheet mask) ❥Seaweed ❥Hyaluronic acid ❥Niacinamide I love a design sheet mask they are great to take selfies with For all skin types, brightening and soothing As a NYC dermatologist Akhavan said “find out what (sheet mask) works for you” *Don’t just buy a mask that your friend recommended, what might work for yourself might not work for others. Our skin reacts different to every product but, it never hurts to try it out.
- Face Mask
I have a few things I noticed. 🌸 No new pimples! Sometimes I’d see like little white bumps that’s about to mature but thanks to this jumiso toner they seem to go away and I do feel mild stinging but it’s the good kind. 🌸I still love my primera miracle seed essence - I hate how I’m almost halfway through because it’s expensive but I use it so much. 🌸I have replaced my vit c serum with liveskincare’s and I really like this one too! I noticed my PIH fading and it definitely contributes to my glow. It also absorbs fast but can feel a bit tacky. 🌸Adding a sunscreen or a cream will get rid of the tackiness so if I feel a bit extra I’d apply a cream just like this jumiso Have a Good Cream because its texture is just so good for humid weather. 🌸kravebeauty Beet the Sun - what can I say.. the hype is real. I love how I can go out with just this sunscreen, no concealer or any base makeup and for some reason my skin looks hella nice. Was it just me??? Maybe. But I am loving this beet-ch!!
primera-Miracle Seed Essence
Skin Brightener and pore minimizer
Jumiso - All Day Vitamin Brightening & Balancing Facial Serum Me being dark skin with different types hyperpigmentation on my skin, this has helped brighten the skin and help uneven texture on my cheeks and neck. I have noticed a difference after using this for a month!
Jumiso-All Day Vitamin Brightening & Balancing Facial Serum
jumiso’s All Day Vitamin Brightening and Balancing Serum. I’ve been using this every morning and it’s been great! It has a lot of lovely ingredients that’s brightening, soothing, anti-inflammatory, and hydrating. I love how it’s lightweight and I also enjoy the subtle scent it has. The texture glides easily and my skin absorbs it quite fast. Another plus would be how more stable it is than the other Vitamin Cs I’ve tried in the past. It really brightened up my skin and my pimple from 2 weeks ago have started to fade completely - I know I had some help with my other products. I’m really enjoying the glow it gives me all day (without feeling oily)!
Jumiso - Yes I Am Toner * has a lovely subtle citrusy-scent thanks to what I’m assuming is from Lemon Myrtle. Like other products from Jumiso, this meets all my expectations of fast-absorbing with no sticky/tacky residue. It gently exfoliates with Glycolic Acid and Lactic Acid, both of which I have found to give my skin positive results. It is alcohol-free so I know this product will not dry my skin. I like to think that my skin is fairly strong when it comes to acids, considering I’ve been incorporating it into my routine for the past 2+ years. Heck, I can even use TO’s 30% AHA + 2% BHA Masque with no problems. This, with only 5% AHA, stung my skin for the first few seconds after application but thankfully did not cause any redness. Other than that, I have no other problems/complaints. This leaves my skin feeling softer and smoother; looking more radiant, and definitely helps my subsequent products absorb quicker. *gifted
Jumiso-Yes I Am Toner
The two creams I currently have on rotation. 💛jumiso Have a Good Cream - Centella Asiatica Extract & Snail Secretion Filtrate. 💛 High Beauty Cannabis Facial Moisturizer - 20% Cannabis Sativa Seed Oil, Potent Plant Oils, Antioxidants I usually choose depending on my mood. I find myself reach for the Jumiso cream in the morning and High Beauty at night mainly because of their texture. Jumiso has a gel-type cream which glides perfectly while High Beauty has this creamy texture that needs to be massaged on the face to avoid some streaking. It’s not really a bad thing because it can be very relaxing. However, it is prone to product pilling if the last product you applied didn’t really get absorbed as fast as you thought. I find both products soothing and moisturizing. If you ask me what my fave is, it’s.. both. HAHA :( I want to finish them already but at the same time don’t? If that makes any sense. I have two creams I am itching to try and I have another 3 opened but I don’t really use them as much as these two. I definitely see myself buying these with my own monies
high-High Five Cannabis Seed Facial Moisturizer
Jumiso’s Snail and Centella Cream* is a lightweight product with great ingredients! Anything with Centella Asiatica extract is perfect for my sensitive skin and top it off with snail slime to lock in moisture and elasticity—my skin is in heaven! ☁️ Like always, fast-absorbing with no sticky/tacky feeling afterwards is what I look for, and guess what, this product meets my expectations. Another thing worth noting is it’s lovely subtle citrusy-scent. This cream sounds great and has wonderful ingredients, but it unfortunately has no effect on my skin blemishes. It helps calm and soothe my skin while keeping it moisturized throughout the day/night but it falls short it’s brightening capabilities. Try this out if you’re seeking for a good cream but don’t expect it to do much with skin blemishes and pigmentation. *gifted
