HOLY WATER💦💦💦💦rose and neroli scented mist
Cost: $55 large bottle For all skin types Provides deep hydration and I saw major improvement in my skins elasticity . Keeps skin’s pH balance at its optimal level . Stem cell extracts from the rare Saffron flower contain antioxidants and carotenoids which aids the epidermis in repair and regeneration. Last but not least, Balance enables greater absorption of nutrients by lowering the skin’s surface tension. I use this in morning . 3 times a week. akar - Balance Toner Neroli flower - anti inflammatory Willow bark extract - bha exfoliation

SAMPLE EMPTIES
primera - Alpine Berry Water Cream I thought this water cream was okay. It didn’t do much for my skin other than provide moisture for my oily skin (also didn’t break me out though). Many people seem to enjoy this, specifically for drier skin types for some reason. The texture and feeling on the skin is great though; it quickly sinks into the skin and is not heavy at all. I love this brand and I’ve been wanting to try more of their products—this one was just not much for me. It smells nice though (be wary of fragrance!) SHISEIDO - Urban Environment Oil-Free UV Protector Broad Spectrum Face Sunscreen SPF 42 This is an oil-free fluid sunscreen that has antioxidants and sebum-absorbing powders to eliminate excess oil and reduce the appearance of pores and to defend against skin-damaging free radicals and pollution. I liked this feeling of this sunscreen on my skin; it doesn’t leave much of a white cast on my medium skin tone and the texture is very light. It has a nice matte finish too which I like! This uses physical and chemical filters (zinc oxide and other chemical filters) but I typically like using mineral or k-beauty sunscreens. This is kinda expensive though but a lot of people like this! I wouldn’t purchase it because of other great sunscreens on the market but I did like it. akar - Balance Toner This is deemed the “holy water” by Allure. It has salicylic acid from white willow bark and antioxidants from the saffron flower. This toner is great in providing hydration and exfoliating. I used this sample everyday until it was gone and my acne was calmed a lot! It’s not very harsh like other stronger exfoliating toners. It’s pretty expensive: $55 for 70ml. I got this in my allure beauty box and I probably won’t purchase it because of the cost. GLOW RECIPE - Banana Soufflé Moisture Cream This is a lightweight moisturizer cream that seals hydration without clogging pores. It worked great for my oily, acne-prone skin during the late inter. I thought this was pretty gentle despite the banana laffy taffy smell. I like other cheaper moisturizers with better ingredients that this one though. Other than that, no complaints. MARIO BADESCU - Ceramide Eye Gel This is an oil-free eye gel that de-puffs and rehydrates tired eyes. It has a blend of ceramides and lecithin to moisturize and diminish under-eye bags. This is recommended for combo/oily skin. Although I’m not fond of the Mario badescu brand, I liked using this and it visibly depuffed my under-eyes. I don’t struggle with under-eye bags a lot but during my finals week I had less sleep. This product really did wonders. I would purchase again if it weren’t for the brand’s reputation.

Currently obsessing over the A
Currently obsessing over the Akar Skin Pure Lip Restoration. 💋 I got this in my January Allure Beauty Box but I didn’t start using it until recently. I’m mad I waited so long because it’s amazing, no lie. 🙌🏾 The consistency is thinner than the texture suggests & you only need a tiny amount. It’s insanely hydrating & leaves my lips so smooth. 👏🏾 It’s a multipurpose balm so you can use it on your other dry areas of your body but the tin is super small (0.23 oz) so I’m gonna stick with my lips. Lol. 😂 It has almond & castor seed oils and beeswax. It has a citrus like scent & all ingredients are organic or wild-harvested. 👍🏾 Swipe to see how my lips are looking from using this! 😘 akar - Pure Lip Restoration Lip Butter

Upon research, I found myself pulled to the mission that Kate, the creator behind this line, “seeks to refine clean beauty standards + believes in taking a holistic approach to beauty that incorporates personal wellness + the health of our planet.” They source traditional ingredients like sea buckthorn + goji berries from Tibet's high plateaus, an area known for its clean air, soil, + sustainable growing and harvesting practices. The Clarify Face Oil, my favorite so far, contains linoleic acid rich oils such as blue tansy + safflower. Each work to restore sebum levels + keep breakouts at bay! It smells delicious + I use it as an occlusive on nights where I have blemishes appear. The Balance Toning Mist is hydrated with rose water, contains zero alcohol, + is packed with potent antioxidants such as saffron cell extract. The Restore Eye Serum is unlike any other I own, due to it being more of an oil, rather than cream. It is 100% natural/ organic, containing ingredients such as goji seed + pumpkin oils that synergistically tighten, rejuvenate, + reduce puffiness in the under eyes. akar - Clarify Face Oil #cheriecreator
