More often than not, a great story leads into products with great efficacy—after all, amazing skincare products don't just get created from thin air—they take trial, error, and passion. Cue Georgette Klinger, a brand with a deep history in beauty and skincare that has resurfaced in this new beauty world, reintroducing it's effective, natural products to Millennials and Gen-Z. What makes this beauty brand so great is that, while it feels new today, many of Georgette Klinger's philosophies are what changed the beauty and skincare industry into what we see today. Here are some ways Georgette Klinger revolutionized beauty, and why the brand is just as amazing today. Treating Skin As a Living OrganGeorgette Klinger was one of skincare's early pioneers and was most well-known between the 1940s and 1980s. One of her first revolutionary philosophies was to treat skin like the living organ that it is, instead of a canvas that needs covering (which is how it was being treated back then). This philosophy fueled her product formulations and helped shift the way skincare and beauty are viewed.The First Famous FacialistAfter opening up her first spa in New York City on Madison Avenue, Georgette Klinger quickly garnered a cult following. She promised spa-goers that ''[she] offers no miracles, no promises -- just clean skin''. Combined with her philosophy of treating skin like a living organ, and the nature-based skincare that she created in her kitchen, it was no surprise that people kept coming back for more and that she even started to attract star-clientele. Actresses from Hollywood would fly to NYC, just for a facial from Mrs. Klinger herself! Nature to NurtureGeorgette Klinger always looked to nature for the best skincare and all the products she used in her spa were made by her in her kitchen! With her gaining popularity in the beauty world, the next logical step became expansion. From her small spa and natural formulas, Georgette Klinger opened more spas in high profile places, like Rodeo Drive in Beverly Hills, eventually opening up a factory in New Jersey in the '80s to manufacture her skincare formulas to the masses. Georgette Klinger Today After years of popularity from 1940 to the 1990's, Georgette Klinger, the brand, slowly started to fade away. In 2004, Georgette Klinger, the pioneer, passed and the brand closed in it's entirety for around 10 years. After a 10-year hiatus, the brand's assets were purchased with a mission to revive Georgette Klinger's legacy and bring her skin-clearling formula's back into the modern world. "Today, armed with her formulas and common-sense approach to beautiful skin, we follow in our matriarch’s footsteps, offering the very best in natural, results-oriented skin care solutions for acne, anti-aging, and everything in between."

GEORGETTE KLINGERCamphor Face MaskHighlights: This mask does WONDERS for acne! The camphor and menthol smell may be unpleasant for some, but for me, it let's me know this is working. After one use and a good's night rest, this mask actively helped dry out some stubborn chin acne I had. Phytic Exfoliating Toner
GEORGETTE KLINGERPhytic Exfoliating TonerHighlights: I recommend an exfoliating toner to everyone—but what makes this a gem is that it simultaneously hydrates, making this a wonder for those with combination skin like myself. Vitamin C Complex
GEORGETTE KLINGERVitamin C ComplexHighlights: The smooth texture of this serum is not lost on me. Vitamin C, Hyaluronic Acid, Kakuda Plum, and more come together to help lighten dark spots and give you firmer, bouncier skin. Sea Extracts Eyecream
GEORGETTE KLINGERSea Extracts Eye CreamHighlights: After a few weeks of using this eyecream, I'm impressed with how much it makes me look like I'm not staying up late every night! Red Marine Algae and Plankton Extract help promote cellular turnover and diminish the look of fine lines.

My Top 5 Foundations for Oily Skin
Here are my top 5 foundations for oily/combination/acne prone skin! These are by no means my only favorite foundations, just the ones I keep going back to. 1. ESTĒE LAUDER - Double Wear Stay-in-Place Foundation This matte, oil-free foundation controls oil all day. It’s sweat, heat and humidity-resistant, waterproof and 24-hour colour true. With buildable, medium-to-full coverage that feels lightweight and so comfortable. No touchups needed. Best for hot weather/ holidays. The only Downside is that it doesn’t come with a pump 2. MAYBELLINE - Fit Me! Matte & Poreless Foundation This foundation is a must have if you are looking for a good drugstore option for oily skin. It’s super affordable and gives a beautiful finish without feeling heavy on the skin. 3. HUDA BEAUTY - Fauxfilter Foundation is perfect for you if you are looking for full coverage. Just a couple of pumps go a long way. However, the formula isn’t ideal for anyone with dry skin or for people sensitive to string fragrances. 4. L'ORÉAL - Infallible Pro-Matte Liquid Longwear Foundation This formula blends unbelievably well and you can build this to completely full coverage! ! I'm beyond impressed for this being drugstore. 5. The Ordinary - Colours Coverage Foundation with SPF 15 this is my everyday foundation and gives good enough coverage. I just have to mix two different shades to get my color as the range is quiet limited but for the price I pay, I don’t mind. Always stay away form words like “dewy”, “luminous”, “shiny” , “glowy” if you have oily skin. Let me know if you have any questions.
are pore bubbling masks worth it? 🧼🛁💬
since COVID has started, I know many people are on new (or refining old) skincare journeys and I’ve recently been experiencing some dryness/dehydrating as the winter rolls around, which also aggravates my already oily skin. I’ve worked in the beauty industry for a while and also was formerly an esthetician, so I can get picky with skincare and ingredients. ‼️for reference, my skin type is: combo (oily/dehydrated), formerly acneic, hyperpigmentation prone, and sensitive 🔬I’ve used Dr. Jart in the past and love that it’s a Korean, science-backed brand so I was stoked to try this Porecting Solution Mask! this mask promises fresh, clear glowing skin that deeply cleanses and purifies pores. the mask contains charcoal and saponine, which creates the bubbling effect you see in the above photo. this product does not contain sulfates, paragons, are phthalates. 🛁when I first took it out of its package, I thought there were *two* masks per package instead of one, but if you read the instructions, there’s actually a “mask film” on the actual mask itself that you’re supposed to remove, so make sure to do that! the actual mask is thick and full of product while the mask film is thinner and lighter in color. the directions also give you a tip to massage the mask to release the bubbling/foaming effect - I did this mask with my mom at the same time in separate rooms and she totally didn’t read the instructions so her mask didn’t bubble at all, so I would suggest to definitely massage the mask. 💬I left it on for 20 minutes and it continued to bubble about 5-10 minutes in, then stopped bubbling. you can hear the bubbles pop as the mask sits on your face, which is kinda weird but cool. the mask didn’t slip off AT ALL which is also a huge, even when I put a sweatshirt on over my head. after taking it off, the serum took about another 10 minutes to soak into my skin and my face felt super smooth and my pores looked tighter and more clean. I have a few sebaceous filaments on my nose that I sometimes pick at and as I was rubbing the serum into my skin, I saw that some of the sebaceous filaments on my nose were sloughing off (which is gross, but speaks to how well the product worked)! overall, I would definitely recommend and use this again! if you have oily skin or otherwise clogged pores, sebaceous filaments, blackheads, etc. I would suggest this for you. even if you have dry/normal skin, this would be a good option since my skin didn’t feel dried out at all afterward, even in my dry spell now, and felt rather hydrated and plump. five stars! ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
