naturium vitamin c serum first impressions
NATURIUM - Vitamin C Complex Serum I just received this product a few days ago, and I’ve only used it twice, but here are my first impressions! This serum is a clear color and it’s very lightweight. The first morning I used it, I used two pumps and it really just settled into my skin. The second morning I used it, I just used one pump (because I didn’t feel I needed two pumps) and it settled into my skin just like the two pumps. The serum certainly isn’t sticky, it’s more like a watery-oil texture, and it really felt like it was hydrating my skin. Obviously, I’ve only used this twice so I can’t really say much about the brightening effect on my dark spots, but I feel like it did add a nice glow to my face in the morning and it hasn’t broken me out (yet, knock on wood). I’m really looking forward to continuing to use this and to seeing the brightening effects in the long term!

Solid Vitamin C product 🌞
If you love Vitamin C but hate the stickiness that comes with most serums, NATURIUM - Vitamin C Complex Serum is your miracle product. It has a complete gel-like texture that once absorbed into the skin, is non-sticky. If you live in a dry/humid climate or have oily skin, this is for you. This serum contains l-ascorbic acid, sodium ascorbyl phosphate, and a blend of fruit extracts to bright the skin. It’s also formulated with Vitamin E and Hyaluronic Acid for a boost or hydration. I’ve noticed results in the lighting of some dark spots after a week and a half, but I stopped using after I over-exfoliated and had to “detox” my skin. I will definitely start using it again though. The non-stickiness of this serum is really what had me shook. In the winter I personally prefer an oil-based Vitamin C serum because of my dryness, but this will be a lifesaver when my skin is more oily in the summer!

Got Dark Spots?! These Are My Fav Ingredients 💯
I struggle a lot with post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation! I always get dark spots post breakouts. Once I started focusing on brightening my skin, it was a game changer! My complexion began to look so much more even and less spotty. These are my favorite brightening Ingredients that faded my dark spots! 💫 AHA's AHA's like lactic, mandelic, & especially glycolic acid all work by urging along your skins natural shedding process. It speeds up cell turnover to fade spots, brighten, & even skin. It also helps with skin texture and pores. But AHAs can be irritating, especially at higher percentages so it's important to do your research before buying a product. If you're new to exfoliating acids, I'd start with a gentle formulation. VITAMIN C Vitamin C has been shown to impede melanin production, which help fade dark spots & lead to a more even-toned complexion. It's also a great antioxidant & has MANY other anti-aging and skin smoothing benefits. And it can be used daily, which overtime will result in a dramatic change in your skin! NIACINAMIDE This is a powerhouse ingredient that can be used by almost anyone! To get a full run-down on niacinamide, PLEASE check out my post on it! Like Vitamin C, It also helps to slow down the production of Melanin & lighten dark patches. But it's less likely to be as irritating, and has more benefits and faster results. Especially for acne-prone skin. HYDROQUINONE Hydroquinone is a controversial ingredient, but has been found as the most effective ingredient for evening out your skin tone & fading dark spots. If formulated right, (which most hydroquinone products in the U.S are) then it's safe and super effective. Hydroquinone, again helps limit skin from creating an excess amount of melanin. The strongest you can get it over the counter is 2%, but prescription it's commonly 4% or even higher. ALPHA ARBUTIN Alpha Arbutin's sole purpose is skin lightening. It's a skin whitener, often used as an gentler alternative for hydroquinone. And It reduces melanin formation, improving the appearance of discoloration. I'm new to this ingredient, but I love it! Alpha Arbutin also pairs GREAT with Vitamin C, and Niacinamide for maximum brightening effects. RETINOL Retinoid is a popular, multi-tasking ingredient that works by prompting surface skin cells to turn over & die, making way for new skin cells. And it curbs the production of Melanin. It's one of the most researched ingredients on the market, and has great benefits for aging, and even acne prone skin. You also want to start at a low concentration of retinol, because it can be irritating and drying. AZELAIC ACID Azelaic acid is an underrated ingredient. It gently works wonders on hyperpigmentation & acne prone skin. It targets certain pigment production, & fades dark spots without lightening the normal skin tone. It does this by targeting melanin. AND it's safe during pregnancy! Side note: NONE OF THESE WILL WORK WELL IF YOU DONT USE SUNSCREEN ⚠️❗

does the order of skincare products matter?
hey everyone!! today I’ll be talking about the order of skincare products and why it’s important to have order with them 🌟 going off this graph, I do not use an eye cream and my routine is the “day” order for both morning and night routines. you should be applying your skincare products in order of thinnest to thickest. this is because the thicker products like moisturiser, eye cream etc, take longer to penetrate into the skin. if you were to put your thinner products after the thicker ones, then those products may not be getting their full effects. 1. cleanser helps to get rid of dirt, oil, makeup, sunscreen off of your face from the day. cleansing is the most important step of a skincare routine my favourites CeraVe - SA Smoothing Cleanser Kiehl's - Ultra Facial Cleanser 2. toner toner helps to reset your pH level and aids in getting rid of the excess oil, dirt etc. (you do not need a toner! for some people, this is an unnecessary step and they may not need it 🤗 ) my favourite PAULA'S CHOICE - Pore-Reducing Toner 3. serum everyone’s serum needs are different, apply your favourite my favourites NATURIUM - Niacinamide Serum 12% Plus Zinc 2% NATURIUM - Azelaic Topical Acid 10% The Ordinary - 100% Organic Cold Pressed Rose Hip Seed Oil 4. eye cream again like toner, some people love using eye cream, others don’t, it’s all up to you and your skincare needs :) 5. moisturiser hydration !! my favourites CeraVe - CeraVe Moisturising Cream Kiehl's - Ultra Facial Cream 6. SPF sunscreen is super important during the day, even if it’s not sunny outside, SPF is crucial. my favourite LE TAN COCONUT SPF 15

❌❌❌Dont Mix These W/ Retinol❌❌❌
What doesn't Retinol do??? It helps unclog pores, exfoliate and smooth skin, reduces the appearance of hyperpigmentation, treats acne and reduces fine lines and wrinkles. So do we really need to pair it with any other active ingredients??? The quick answer is no, retinol can do a lot on its own. Here are a list of products not to mix with Retinol: ⬇️⬇️⬇️⬇️⬇️⬇️⬇️⬇️⬇️⬇️⬇️⬇️⬇️⬇️⬇️⬇️⬇️ ❌AHAs- Too irritating ❌Salicylic Acid- Too Drying ❌ Another Retinol- No benefit to double down- Too irritating ❌Benzoyl Peroxide- They will deactivate each other, however, DIFFERIN - 0.1% Adapalene Acne Treatment Gel Pump is the exception. I currently use DIFFERIN - 0.1% Adapalene Acne Treatment Gel Pump and I layer my favorite BIOSSANCE - Squalane + Phyto-Retinol Serum underneath. Even tho it's labeled a retinol it's the natural Bakuchiol retinol form and works well layered with adapalene. You can also layer some Vitamin C serums and Hyaluronic Acid with your Retinol. I love NATURIUM - Vitamin C Super Serum Plus a mix of vitamin c/retinol and NATURIUM - Quadruple Hyaluronic Acid Serum 5% . Do you use a Retinol?? Do you layer your retinol??

NATURIUM GEMS ✨✨✨
I am so excited to share these products with you guys because just wow! I wanted to take some time to try them out for a bit and see how they would react on my skin. Happy to say these products absorb into my skin beautifully without leaving a sticky feeling. I always pair an occlusive moisturizer with my actives to prevent possible irritation and over drying. My thoughts: NATURIUM - Azelaic Topical Acid 10% This product gently exfoliates the skin to help reduce the appearance of dark spots. This also helps control and balance excess oil. This product has a slight tingling sensation when first applied but it goes away after you smooth or pat it into your skin. I like to apply this in the nighttime only. Never experienced itchiness or irritation after using this. NATURIUM - Vitamin C Super Serum Plus Now this bad boy contains vitamin c, vitamin a, salicylic acid, hyaluronic acid, and niacinamide. I use this during the day time unless I’m wearing a mask that day. This helps with aging, acne, hyperpigmentation, And enhances overall complexion. I see an immediate brightening effect on my skin after using this. I love how this is a power infused serum that never leaves my skin feeling irritated. I use this serum 3-4 a week in the daytime. NATURIUM - Niacinamide Serum 12% Plus Zinc 2% This product deserves more hype then it’s getting. I see how it is improving the look of my dark spots, and overall skin texture. Gentle but very effective. Great for most skin styles. I love how this preforms and layers with other actives and serums as well. I use this almost every day. NATURIUM - Plant Squalane Face Oil 100% This is one of my favorite face oils of all time! Leaves your skin feeling moisturized, soft and supple. It’s a lightweight, non-greasy oil absorbs easily into the skin. I recommend this for all skin types. I love to use the oil whenever I’m breaking out as the last serum before my moisturizer. Even if I’m not breaking out I just love how this oil makes my skin look and feel. I hope you try these products out and let me know how they work for you. Thanks for reading 🤍 #skincareandshare

Update
As you can see my skin is doing a lot better! I have less active breakout, but the breakouts i have a red and inflamed now. I am suffering from hyperpigmentation now so if you have any products to help with that please post! AM Routine: CeraVe - Foaming Facial Cleanser For Normal To Oily Skin My skin has been dry so I use the CeraVe - Hydrating Cream-To-Foam Cleanseras needed mainly in the AM NATURIUM - Quadruple Hyaluronic Acid Serum 5%apply to damp skin and it soaks up! FIRST AID BEAUTY - Ultra Repair Cream CeraVe - AM Facial Moisturizing Lotion SPF 30 PM: CeraVe - Foaming Facial Cleanser For Normal To Oily Skin M/W tretinoin 0.0025% T/TH NATURIUM - BHA Liquid Exfoliant 2% F PanOxyl - Acne Foaming Wash Benzoyl Peroxide 10% Maximum Strength FIRST AID BEAUTY - Ultra Repair Cream I will use the hyaluronic acid on my skin if I feel I really need it. I tend to use it morning to help with flaky skin. If I do use it it’s followed after the exfoliant. I stopped using the ordinary aha/bha for the time being because I do use tretinoin and the bha exfoliant. Because my skin has been drying out I ordered the Krave Beauty Great Barrier relief serum. Sadly wasn’t able to do the facial because of the tretinoin and I don’t want to stop the treatment for a facial, but we will see. Still waiting for my derm appointment Jan 8th to start spironolactone so I cannot wait for the next step.

Naturium: Affordable, Well-Rounded Formulas!
Naturium marries biologically-optimal ingredients with aesthetic, minimalist packaging. They’re a step above The Ordinary minimalism while forgoing random filler ingredients like fragrance and essential oils, managing to be both affordable and well-rounded! • NATURIUM - Quadruple Hyaluronic Acid Serum 5% A thin, silky serum that absorbs quickly. It’s loaded with humectants, emollients, and a few antioxidants, making it deeply hydrating. I use it mainly to dilute other products for my sensitive skin, but dehydrated skin would looovee this for twice daily use. Repurchase? No, I tend to use multiple serums, so I don’t need a specifically hydrating one. • NATURIUM - BHA Liquid Exfoliant 2% Encapsulated salicylic acid + humectants = a hydrating exfoliant that helps with pore size and mild acne. Its lightweight texture is perfect for any skin type, except sensitive skin which may have issues with its citrus extracts. Repurchase? No, for fear of my eczema flaring with long-term use 🙈 • NATURIUM - Hyaluronic Acid Essence 2% Watery? Yup. Hydrating? Very. Sticky? Not at all! Apply to damp skin for instant hydration- I plan to put mine in a spray bottle soon! I do think the humectant-packed formula would be too simple if it wasn’t such a steal at $16 for 170mL. Plus, it does include soothing beta-glucan, making it perfect for any skin type. Repurchase? Probably not, as I use a lot of hydrating serums. • NATURIUM - Niacinamide Gel Cream 5% This gel is thicc, thanks to a few silicones and other polymers. It includes antioxidants and humectants to complement the star- niacinamide! B3 is popular for controlling sebum production, minimizing pore appearance, reducing acne, and its antioxidant status. This gel-cream is great for normal, oily, and acne prone skin! I mix it with oil for my drier skin. Repurchase? Yes! It’s perfect for layering over my serums in summer. • *NATURIUM - Intense Overnight Sleeping Cream Thick, bouncy, and spreadable, its humectants, emollients, lipids, and antioxidant extracts leave skin soft and seal in hydration without clogging my pores. Dry skin, layer it over a lightweight moisturizer for plump skin by AM. Oily skin, apply right on top of serums for satin skin when you wake up! Repurchase? Yes! This is such a winter staple for me now, it performs like a balm, but with a better texture. • *NATURIUM - Plant Ceramide Rich Moisture Cream Emollients, humectants, ceramides, fatty acids, antioxidants... This buttery cream is a great winter moisturizer or PM moisturizer for normal and combo skin, or AM + PM for dry skin. Oily skin, I’d avoid its rich formula. Repurchase? If I didn’t have a million moisturizers to test and review, yes! This is affordable and a lovely PM moisturizer. Want To Try: Niacinamide Skin Mist 2% Naked, Vitamin C Complex, Tranexamic Topical Acid 5% *Gifted

Marine hyaluronic gel!?
I decided to try a bunch of products from this brand Naturium! This gel like cream really stood out to me. I suffer from really dry skin so this looked great. This cream reminds me a lot of Laneige water sleeping mask. The only thing is this gel moisturizer has no scent unlike the Laneige one which I really am grateful for. This moisturizer has marine-based polysaccharides, hyaluronic acid and phytonutrients to provide skin with a burst of long-lasting hydration. NATURIUM - Marine Hyaluronic Water Cream I’m going to give this a 4/5. Overall the cream is really nice and I like to use it during the day. I however feel like it doesn’t stand out to me compared to other moisturizers. It’s very simple and effective but I like more nourishing and creamy products to use at night (personal preference). I think this product would be really good for younger skin like in high school or early twenties due to its simplistic ingredients. However it doesn’t offer enough anti-aging benefits for me.

Hyaluronic Acid Essence!
Now selling at Target!! Essence preps skin up for absorption and after this I don’t need another serum I just go straight to moisturizer. Do not need toner when I have this. NATURIUM - Hyaluronic Acid Essence 2% It plumps, hydrates and improves skin appearance. I have been pairing this up with my routine with Differin’s adapalene.

Great for hyperpigmentation!
Have you tried Naturium products? I have been very pleased with this NATURIUM - Alpha Arbutin Serum 2% and I can’t tell you enough how much it helped faded my very recent hyperpigmentation. This is a highly concentrated serum that is formulated with alpha arbutin, along with niacinamide and lemon extract. Alpha Arbutin is naturally derived from bearberries, blueberries and cranberries. It is actually one of the safest skin brighteners and the skin converts it to hydroquinone, without irritating the skin. This is a lightweight serum that is transparent in color and fragrance free. It absorbs quickly on the skin without feeling sticky or thick. I apply this right after my toner and before other serums in the morning. I have been using this for over a week now and I can tell that my recent hyperpigmentation has faded significantly. Not only this serum is brightening but also it is a good antioxidant. It is vegan and cruelty free. I didn’t have any problems layering it with Vitamin C, Niacinamide and Retinol. If you are looking for brightening and preventing dark spot development, this one is a good product to consider. What products do you like to use to lighten your acne marks, hyperpigmentation or sun spots? ⬇️⬇️⬇️

Pregnancy Melasama Impoving
Giving birth to my beautiful baby girl has definitely been the greatest joy of my life and I wouldn't change anything. 1 year after giving birth my neck still looked like the the BEFORE picture. I think it was towards the end of my first trimester I started getting this dark discoloration on my neck and my doctor diagnosed me with melasma. She said it was due to the pregnancy nothing serious and will fade over time after I gave birth. So after giving birth I wait 1 year and nothing changes!!!! I started all different serums but what seemed to work the best was a combination of NATURIUM - Alpha Arbutin Serum 2% , NATURIUM - Tranexamic Topical Acid 5% and NATURIUM - Vitamin C Face Oil layered during the day and making sure I finished with sunscreen PURITO - Centella Green Level Unscented Sun SPF50+ As you can see, by the before and after, using these products constantly has greatly improved the melasma on my neck and my face. These pictures were taken 3 months apart.

🤰🏻Let’s Talk Melasma: Tranexamic Acid 5%
I want to start incorporating one of my favorite topics in relation to skincare: pregnancy! I want to note that I have never been pregnant so my only knowledge are the OBGYN topics I’ve studied and my own research I’ve done in my free time. Sooooo Let’s talk about Naturium’s newest launch, Tranexamic Topical Acid 5%! 🔬 What is Tranexamic Acid (TXA) and what is it used for? 🏷 Orally used as a coagulant, TXA has been recently studied topically as a treatment for hyperpigmentation and melasma. 🏷 TXA has been studied against a famous ingredient for hyperpigmentation, hydroquinone, both of which have shown to reduce melasma. 🏷 TXA is gentler and fewer users in the clinical trial have complained of skin irritation (vs with Hydroquinone). 🔬What is Melasma? 🏷 Also known as pregnancy induced hyperpigmentation, melasma is a patchy freckle-like distribution on the cheeks in particular that can actually occur in anyone. Hormones during pregnancy + excessive sun exposure just puts 🤰🏻 at risk for this condition. 🏷 can be prevented by using mineral SPF throughout pregnancy! 🏷 standard treatment for melasma is a triple combo therapy with topical hydroquinone, tretinoin and corticosteroids but can only be used postpartum. 🏷 other ingredients that have been helpful include TXA, azelaic acid and Kojic acid. NATURIUM - Tranexamic Topical Acid 5% I don’t suffer from a lot of hyperpigmentation so I actually had my partner who has non-pregnancy related freckles/hyperpigmentation use it for 2-3 weeks AM and PM. Here are her thoughts: - Formula feels nice but slightly sticky upon application. Probably not the best thing to use under makeup in the morning but is fine as a night serum. - Unfortunately no huge differences in decreasing hyperpigmentation so far! Will have to report back if there are any longer term effects. - TXA is 3rd the ingredient list. Yay! - This formula also contains kojic acid, licorice root extract and niacinamide (all brightening) so if you’re looking for a targeted brightening serum in your routine, it’s not a bad option! Cheers to pregnancy skin 🥂 Please discuss down below what you’d like to know about pregnancy (and postpartum) + skincare!!

Best Niacinamide
Best Niacinamide
Please read my previous post to know the benefits of niacinamide and why we all need one niacinamide product in our skin routines. These are my top 3 niacinamide products that I love!! I have used these three over a period of time and absolutely love all these three. NATURIUM - Niacinamide Serum 12% Plus Zinc 2% tips my chart for the best niacinamide products out there. I have currently been using this for over two months and I am seeing great results. The product itself is a very light weight serum. Gets absorbed into the skin very quickly and is not sticky or heavy. Sits well under my makeup. My skin has evened out in both texture and it’s tone. This product doesn’t have a particular fragrance and doesn’t cause any skin irritations. PAULA'S CHOICE - 10% Niacinamide Booster is my second choice on this list. This is a booster product and I used to mix this with my moisturizer. Just great results for this one too- my skin pores looked much smaller, evened out my skin and helped my skin retain its moisturizer . Glossier. - Super Pure Niacinamide + Zinc Serum this also another great niacinamide to add onto your skin routine. This product kinda looks like a highlighter on your face because it gives a glow. Very effective though, reduced my hyperpigmentation and helped my skin looked more clear and left it hydrated. So, in short all these three are great Niacinamide products. They were all effective, great results and evened out my skin tone and texture .

Most Effective Vit C Serum!!
Most Effective Vit C Serum!!
For years, I have been using the Sweet CHEF - Ginger + Vitamin C Serum Shot . I really love this product and I have dedicated a whole another review for this product on my page. However, lately my skin changed a lot and I started noticing that it wasn’t responding much to the products that I had been using .So, I went ahead and did a revamp for my skin -care routines and in the process, I found the most effective Vit C out in the market right now! NATURIUM - Vitamin C Complex Serum is a 22% vit C serum complex, which is pretty strong when we compare with most of the vit C serums out there in the market. However, this product is formulated and packaged in a way that this high percentage of Vit C does only good for your skin because it’s in the encapsulated form and has gold s one of its ingredients which just makes the Vit C more stable. I have been using this product for about 3 weeks now and started noticing the difference in my skin within the first week. I had dark spots disappearing and my skin started to get a more even texture and tone . The product has a serum structure and comes in a opaque bottle with dropper, which is very easy for application. The product itself is a golden translucent liquid that gets absorbed very quickly into the skin. Doesn’t feel sticky, oily or heavy like some Vit C products out there. There is no specific fragrance associated with it , which makes it great for even the most sensitive skin type. I use the product everyday in the morning and sometimes in the evening( when I am not using my Retinol). I just can’t get enough of this product or this brand. This is just one really effective Vit C. This brand Naturium, is a clean brand , which made me more attracted towards trying their products. So, for all those of you searching for a Vit C that actually works- this is the ONE!! ❣️ P.S: I also got their NATURIUM - Niacinamide Serum 12% Plus Zinc 2% and will put out a post for this product soon!
