My Skin Changed So Much After I Found A Good Toner!😮😮
Often disregarded or skipped, face toners should be considered as an important step to your skin care routine for well-cleansed, hydrated and supple skin. I rely on toners to provide a quick hit of hydration on my dry cheeks while removing dead skin cells on my T-zone. It also essentially preps my skin and balances my skin pH to absorb the benefits of the products that I will use after, especially since cleansing can be harsh for the skin. As the city that I am residing in now is hot and dry, I am currently using a toner that helps to boost hydration at the same time. Muji’s Moisturizing Toning WaterMUJI - HIGH MOISTURIZING TONING WATER has not disappoint me so far. One of my favorite lifestyle brands, Muji was founded in Japan in 1980 to offer products that are actually useful for the customer and maintain an ideal of the proper balance between living and the objects that make it possible. I only started using their range of skin care line recently, including this hydrating toner for sensitive skin. Infused with natural water from Kamaishi, Japan, the toner also contains natural grapefruit extract and purslane extract. Both ingredients have astringent properties to help regulate the build-up of oil in the pores. To use, I lightly squeeze the bottle and pour onto the product on a cotton pad before swiping it across my cleansed face. The gentle liquid preps and hydrates my skin well for the serum and moisturizer I use next. On days when I use heavy make-up and when I need a more thorough skin detox, I use Clinique’s Clarifying Lotion 2 - For Dry Combination Skin. CLINIQUE - Clarifying Lotion 2 For Dry Combination SkinThe liquid never fails to cleans my face even more by effectively sweeping away pollution residue, grime, skin flakes to reveal smoother, clearer skin. To apply, I pour the toner on a cotton ball or pad and sweep it gently over face and neck. It is always satisfying to see dirt and gunk trapped on the cotton, thanks to this toner. Although suitable for use in day and night, I only use this toner at night as it can feel stingy or harsh on the face, especially during the bitty dry winter climate. Still, this is definitely one of the most effective toners you can use to clean and hydrate combination skin well!

Muji Toner no results
MUJI - HIGH MOISTURIZING TONING WATER MUJI Light Toning Water High Moisture I usually love Muji skincare but this one wasn’t the best. It’s a high moisture toner that’s supposed to moisturize the skin as a step in your routine. There are also different levels of moisture and this one in particular is the high one! It’s a light toner, the consistency of water. It doesn’t leave me sticky or anything but it just doesn’t do anything. I gave it away after half a bottle and my friend didn’t fancy it either. No results. So I wouldn’t recommend this one. Maybe for super oily skin! It was decently priced though so it was worth a go.

Reviewing My Followers Skincare Routines pt. 1
Hey y’all! In today’s post I’ll be reviewing my followers skincare routines! I went through some of y’all’s accounts in search of some routines, then messaged everyone to make sure they were okay with me using their routines in this post! This is only pt. 1 because this post got wayyy to long to include everyone at once! Let me start by saying I’m not an esthetician or dermatologist, nor have I ever claimed to be. I am just a fellow skincare lover who knows a lot about ingredients in skincare. We’re starting off with @Chloe_McRae. Sometimes she decides to double cleanse, and when she does she starts with the#Holifrog - Kissimmee Vitamin F Therapy Balmy Wash[products]#[FourStars] which is $42 for 2.5 fl oz. This has a ton of great hydrating oils, as well as Vitamin F, which is great for helping cell turnover. I would say it’s a great first cleanse for those with dry skin. Next she uses theDRUNK ELEPHANT - Beste No. 9 Jelly Cleanser Deluxe Sample which is $32. I would say this is a good cleanser. The cleansing agents are gentle and non stripping, and it also has glycerin which is hydrating, and cantaloupe fruit extract which is a hydrating extract full of antioxidants. Other than that, this is a pretty basic cleanser. Next she uses the HERBIVORE - Prism 20% AHA + 5% BHA Exfoliating Glow Facial l which is $58. Because the name is confusing, it’s a gel face mask. This stuff looks gorgeous and the ingredients are too. Along with AHA and BHA, it has aloe and rose water which help your skin to retain moisture. I don’t think it’s worth $58, but it’s pretty good. Next is the PEACH & LILY - Wild Dew Treatment Essence which is $39 for 3.38 fl oz. This essence has glycerin, Nicinamide, and Hylaronic acid. For $39 I expected a lot more. In general, essence is less effective than a serum, so this seems a little expensive for what you get. Then comes theDRUNK ELEPHANT - Sweet Biome Fermented Sake Hydrating Spray which is $42. Yes, $42 for a face mist. Now looking at the ingredients this has glycerin and a small amount of Hylaronic acid. The rest of the ingredients are extracts. Thankfully there isn’t fragrance, but this is a no because it’s so expensive. And finally is the COSRX - BHA Blackhead Power Liquid which is $24. Really this has some Willow water and Nicinamide and that’s it. Okay I freaked out at this point. Nowhere in this routine is sunscreen or moisturizer!!! Nooooo!! We need less acids and more of the basics. Overall I’d say this routine has too many steps. I think you could simplify down to a double cleanse, a cheap but good serum with Hylaronic acid and Nicinamide which seem to be the ingredients that work well for your skin, and the a moisturizer and some spf. Our next routine comes from @WillWorkforMascara. She starts her routine with theCeraVe - Foaming Facial Cleanser For Normal To Oily Skin w is $17. This product is great for oily skin, which she has. It has glycerin, nicinamide, and Hylaronic acid so it’s super hydrating. Next she usesThe Ordinary - Glycolic Acid 7% Toning Solution witch is $8.70. Along with glycolic acid, it has aloe vera water and glycerin. Some people think it’s overly stripping, but for oily skin its great. Now this is where this routine becomes international. She goes in with theMUJI - Boosting Essence Lotion which is $7 for 50 ml. This essence has aloe vera juice and glycerin. It does have quite a bit of fragrance though which makes it a no from me. Next she goes in with the#Pearlessence - Argan Oil + Vitamin E facial oil[products]#[ThreeStars] which is $11.89 for 1.83 fl oz. This product has two ingredients. Vitamin E and Argan oil. Now this is where we really go international. #Human Nature - Sunflower Eye Cream[products]#[TwoStars] and found out that 295 Cuban Peso is $12.29. Now as for the ingredients this eye cream has sunflower oil and glycerin. And fragrance. Fragrance can especially be irritating around the eye area so this is another no. Instead try some thing likeTHE inkey LIST - Caffeine Eye Cream She also uses a eyebrow and eyelash oil called Peach Thy Lash which is 150 Cuban Peso or $6.25. I don’t know anything about this kind of product so I can’t really say if it works. And finally is theLANEIGE - LANEIGE Lip Sleeping Mask which is $22. This mask has Vitamin C, Hylaronic acid, and glycerin. It seems good to me, but this sort of product is more about the experience, and I haven’t tried it. Again! We need moisturizer and sunscreen! This one also has too many steps so let’s simplify it to cleanser, toner, moisturizer, sunscreen, eyelash oil, and lip mask. Unfortunately this post would be super long if I included everyone, so look out for pt. 2 coming soon! Please cheer for this post if you liked it, comment below your holy grail skincare products, and follow me to join the family and for similar content! -Mae

Night Skin Care Routine for Oily Acne Prone Skin
Please note that this is what I often use for my nighttime skincareroutine. Come AM,I only use just an essence/ toner and sunblock after washing my face with a mild face wash. 🍓Cerave foaming facial cleanser (fragrance- free for normal to oily skin) - honestly wanted to try this trending cleaner and it didn’t disappoint. It is a clear gel that foams like the typical cream cleansers. So far, it works for me and i like it because it’s mild and non- stripping.CeraVe - Foaming Facial Cleanser For Normal To Oily Skin 🍓The Ordinary GlycolicAcid toning solution- I use this only twice a week and i love it because I can see the gunk on the cotton pad after each use. I use it on my UA too btw. :)The Ordinary - Glycolic Acid 7% Toning Solution 🍓Muji Booster Essence Lotion- I use this or the Laneige Skin refiner (if the air is drier) because it preps my skin for it to absorb the serums and moisturizer better. It makes the skin moist, plump just overall healthy- looking.MUJI - Boosting Essence Lotion 🍓Pearlessence Argan and Vitamin E FacialOil - I just randomly got this from Marshalls because of the packaging lol. Pleasantly surprised because it’s a nourishing face oil with a relaxing scent to boot. I took a star away bec i find the oil is not that thin thus it takes a little bit more for my face to absorb itPEARLESSENCE - Argan Oil and Vitamin E Facial Oil 🍓Human Nature Sunflower oil Eye cream - I’ve always loved the oil and was glad to try this eyecream. Have yet to see the effect but eyebags weren’t really an issue to me. The fragrance- free bouncy cream absorbed easily on the under- eye and sometimes i use it as an over- all face moisturizer.#Human Nature - sunflower oil eye cream[products]#[FiveStars] 🍓Skin Potions Peach thy Lash eyelash and eyebrow grower - Consistenly used this for a month or two and I can say it is effective in lengthening and thickening my brows and lashes. It’s not oily like castor oil and has this gel- like consistency that is not stinging to the eyes.Skin Potions - Peach Thy Lash 🍓Laneige lip sleeping mask - this cult favorite has been a staple and it’s my ride or die lipbalm/ mask/ treatment. I used petroleum jelly or lip balm before but when I tried this, I DID NOT LOOK BACK SEZ. The tub may seem small but it will last a looong time even if used daily.LANEIGE - LANEIGE Lip Sleeping Mask I find that these products work for my oily acne prone skin lately but always remember that consistency is 🔑☺️

Hydrating Morning Routine
1) Essence Toner — It preps my skin for the rest of the routine. Not necessary but I can always tell when I don’t use it. Skin feels hydrated immediately after use. 2) Hydrating Toner - It adds hydration to my skin so I can seal it in with moisturizer later. Great trick for dry skin! It doesn’t have any fragrance and it’s very absorbing. 3) Vitamin C serum - Helps brighten up skin and Possibly help sunscreen work better** . Lovely spread and absorbs moderately fast into skin. 4) Moisturizing combo mix of All the Feels Oil mixed with Moisturizing Milk - I like to make concoctions like this one for a leveled up moisturizer. Both are fragrance free and moisturize my skin perfectly. The Muji milk has a very slightly sticky feel, but I don’t mind it. Works great under skin. 5) Protect your skin with @cerave Tinted Sunscreen SPF 30 - I prefer mineral sunscreens and I’m in love with this one atm- no white cast for my skin tone. Full review of this product coming up.

Japanese hype product
#MUJI - Moisturizing Milk High Moisture[products]#[FiveStars] MUJI moisturizing milk high moisture My first MUJI skincare product and it’s great. Like amazing. Everyone in Japan was buying so I thought why not. Although, I’m going to start off by that it’s not going to do anything revolutionary. It’s just a great great great moisturizing milk for every skin type and in every situation. You can layer it with any skincare product in any part of your routine, you can use it alone, you can use it on your face etc. And this will results in more hydrated skin and softer skin. It’s so affordable and such a simple formula and I love it because of that. It has radically changed my friend’s skin, when going from no skincare routine to only this and I can say his skin is so soft and supple and glowy. He noticed. I noticed. Everyone noticed. This stuff is amazing and universal! Literally for everyone. So go get this if you’re in a Muji store. They have mini sizes that go for $6 or something. I’ve gone throw 4 minis and two huge bottles so don’t @ me. The milky and lightweight texture will leave a slight residue but it’s fine. Layer it, tap it in or whatever you need to do and you won’t feel it. Super worth it!!

Skincare Tweaks for Combating Seasonal Allergies
Every time my seasonal spring allergies act up, I feel like a whole year’s worth of skincare has been lost to the sheer amount of crimes I commit tugging/rubbing my eyelids and blowing my nose. I just can’t help it!! Applying product almost feel like a waste when I have to wipe it right off seconds later. I don’t see a lot online talking about this so here are some lessons I’ve learned: 1. Optimize your environment. Reduce triggers. Knowing the root cause of your allergic triggers is vital. For me, really dry Mediterranean climates (aka what I grew up in) really throw me into misery. Vacuuming and wiping down dust in my room aside, two things that have really helped is finally investing in an air purifier for filtration and a humidifier to keep the air too heavy for dust particles to circulate. 2. Another reason to wear a mask! From the few walks I’ve taken, I’ve noticed significantly fewer allergy symptoms with my 😷 on. sometimes I even wear 😎 to keep the pollen from flying into the eyes. 3. Refrigerate your skincare. While cold skincare may not drastically prolong its shelf life, we do know that cooler temperatures cause vasoconstriction of the skin, which can decrease our puffy allergic faces after a long night (or day). VANITY PLANET - Fria Skincare Fridge(tbh I just use my regular fridge) 4. Repair excessive lid-tugging with eye hydrogels. If there was ever a reason to own overpriced eye products, the time to use them is now! Restoring the skin barrier here may be priority if you’re being savage like I am. GOOD MOLECULES - Caffeine Energizing Hydrogel Eye Patches VERSED - THE FIX Emergency Eye Mask 5. Refresh and rehydrate with a quick midday routine. Sometimes that pollen just needs to be washed off more than once a day. Try choosing extra hydrating products that don’t sting around the eyes and re-trigger our sensitive tear ducts. Bringing around a moisturizer or SPF to reapply after blowing your nose might be useful too! MUJI - Anti-aging Light Toning Water High Moisture I'm from - Rice Toner 🌸 Cheers and my hearts go out to those who want to enjoy spring but can’t 😔🥂

Anti-aging toner?
MUJI - Anti-aging Light Toning Water High Moisture This didn’t perform well. It’s an anti-aging moisturizing toner from Muji. While I like their original skincare line I don’t think they did that great with the other lines, specially the anti-aging ones. I bought this a while ago and was my second product from the line. This toner leaves me sticky which I don’t like, even when using a cotton pad. It has water consistency which is normal for a toner, so I didn’t mind that, just the results. I didn’t see any results or even felt moisturized after using this. I really didn’t like this. Wouldn’t recommend and wouldn’t repurchase. I’m happy I bought the mini to try first!

Anti-Aging Muji
MUJI - Portable Anti-aging Moisturising Milk This is the anti-aging version of the normal MUJI moisturizing milk. This has natural anti aging ingredients like pomegranate and rose blended with intensely moisturizing ingredients like Hyaluronic acid and collagen. But sadly this didn’t work for me. It acted like the normal moisturizing milk which I do love, but this cost a little extra and didn’t perform as it claims so I just have to give it a bad review. I didn’t see any difference in my skin except that it was more moisturized but again, the normal Muji lotion would have done the same. I wouldn’t recommend this one!

MUJI cleansing oil
MUJI - OIL CLEANSING I love this oil! It’s a lightweight cleansing oil that claims to get rid of all impurities and melt away makeup and dirt. It is 100% made from plant-based oils such as olive oil and jojoba oil. This can be a trigger for people so watch out! Mainly the olive oil since it can be quite heavy for some, but for me it was fine and I find the oil pretty lightweight in texture as you can see in the video. It’s liquidy. I really love this oil as a travel first cleanse. It comes in such a small and cute bottle which is perfect for traveling. It takes away all the makeup and does everything an oil cleanser should and beyond! I have had no issues, that meaning breakouts or reactions to this oil even if I have acne-prone skin and combination skin as well. It doesn’t strip your skin and leaves it soft and clean! I have other oils I’m more fond of at the moment to buy the full-size but one thing is for sure and it is that it’s always in my travel bag! Recommend trying the small one first to see if it’s to your liking but overall it’s a really nice cleansing oil and for the price???? Even better. The Japanese do it again.

3 Good Products You Should Try!
3 Good Products You Should Try!
My lovely friend sent me a bunch of skincare products a while ago. So I have a lot to write in the next few days. But let's start with these three! MUJI Moist Essence Lotion The aging care series focuses on anti-aging and is more moisturizing than its other series. It's most suitable for those 25 years old and above. It's gentle, non-pigmented, fragrance-free and mineral oil-free. However, it has a heavy texture, so it's not suitable for oily skin. CAUDALIE - Vinopure Purifying Toner Compared with Caudalie Grape Water, it has more active ingredients, and the spray design is very convenient. It contains rosemary leaf oil, so you'll see oil-water separation after it's left standing. Shake well before use. Its formula with peppermint essential oil can control oily skin, but it's a little irritating for sensitive skin. ESTĒE LAUDER - Micro Essence Skin Activating Treatment Lotion It's smooth, runny, absorbed easily, and has a light scent. I used it when I was about to have an acne breakout and it soothed my redness and itching in just one day. It does a good job repairing the skin's natural barrier.

Muji Oil Cleanser 

I’ve used
Muji Oil Cleanser I’ve used 47mL of 200mL since I got this in Japan. They have this lying around in Family Mart along with some other care stuff and I knew in my heart that I had to buy it haha. At first, I wasn’t too fond of the thickness because of the other cleansing oils I have tried then it grew on me after my second try. No breakouts up to now.✨ It smells like olive oil mainly because it’s one of the ingients which is super gentle. (Just make sure you’re not to it). It also turns milky when it emulsifies and it leaves my clean and soft! It gets the job done - removing makeup, dirt and all without leaving any oil residue. On days where I have no-to-little makeup, there’s no need for second cleansing. 😉💕 I find that the pump can dispense a little too much of the product so I do small half pumps and it’s enough for my whole face. I was actually looking for the DHC cleansing oil because a good friend of mine recommended it but sadly, I didn’t find it but I’m still glad I found this gem in a convenient store. Now I gotta try all Muji care products!!! 〰️ would definitely repurchase!

🌟🌟Part II 🌟🌟of the Products I Use These Days
As I said in my last post. I got so bored at home. And I did a bunch of shopping. 🌷 These are more reviews on the products I bought recently!  I didn't take any photos of the Beauclair Cleansing Lotion and FANCL Mild Cleansing Oil which I use to remove my makeup.😢 I use Muji Face Soap for cleansing. It's really cheap. 😉Also, I've repurchased Freeplus Mild Soap so many times and I use it all year round. Freeplus Mild Soap is suitable for sensitive skin as it's gentle and doesn't leave your skin feeling tight. Then, it's CLARINS - Double Serum Complete Age Control Concentrate. It's suitable for dry skin. 😄😄😄Squeeze two drops onto your palm, rub it between your palms until it's warm, then massage it onto your face. Sometimes, I will just apply the serum on my face straightaway with my finger so that it doesn't get absorbed by my palms. However, it doesn't get absorbed by the skin as fast when I don't message it on with my palms. Occasionally, I will apply face masks at night. It's been a surprising journey using the FILORGA - MESO-MASK. The instant glowing effect really shows.👀 Lastly, I recommend an amazing hand cream🤘🤘🤘 Aveeno - Active Naturals, Skin Relief, Hand Creamwhich I have been using for the second half of last year. It gets absorbed fast, it's not heavily scented, it doesn't leave my skin greasy but it leaves my skin soft and moisturized.
