First Impressions - Very Cherry Vitamin C 🍒
Just swapped out my DRUNK ELEPHANT - C-Firma Vitamin C Day Serum with the FARMACY - Very Cherry Bright 15% Clean Vitamin C Serum with Acerola Cherry in my morning routine. I have posted about this before but man finding a good vitamin c serum is hard!! What I’ve noticed with this product so far: it’s really watery the smell is nice and mild I’m concerned the clear packaging will cause it to go back quick the pump disperses the perfect amount it’s not sticky My overall first impression is schmeh... I bought it because someone recommended it to me, but I’m thinking I’ll have to get the Paul’s choice one next since that seems to be a big hit!

Dare to Go Bare with Glow Screen 💖
Hey Cherie Fam 🍒 Elta MD’s tinted sunscreen was my holy grail for years. What’s not to love? It’s tinted, contains Hyaluronic acid, it protects from UV light/sunlight and it’s fairly cheap ($28). elta md SKINCARE - UV Daily Tinted Broad-Spectrum SPF 40 I received Supergoop’s Glow Screen for Christmas and I’ve been using it obsessively since. I always skipped Supergoop because of the cost and Elta MD works for me. However, not only this sunscreen provides sun protection, it also provides light coverage that makes me glow. This makes me more confident on my no make up days and makes me feel like a highlighter princess! I love how this doesn’t accentuate my large pores or make my face feel super oily. This is also great as a primer and wear under makeup and provides major hydration. I love how this sunsceeen is also coral reef safe! Supergoop! - Glowscreen Sunscreen SPF 40 This product is a bit more pricy ($36) but it’s worth it because I use this as a sunscreen and as a primer. I don’t need to spend more $$$ when I run out of my primer. What is your current skin care holy grail? Xoxo, Francesca 💋

⚡️SKIN SAVIOR SERUMS ⚡️
These are some of my newer serums that I’ve been using for a few months now and I’m totally in love!! Here’s how I use them and what they do for me 🥰 My Skin Type: Very Combination, Rosacea, Light skin tone, 21 yrs old PEACH & LILY - Glass Skin Refining Serum Price: $39/40 mL Ingredients: niacinamide, peach extract, peptides, hyaluronic acid Thoughts: This serum is PERFECT for combination skin! Its super hydrating and also controls excess oil production with the niacinamide/HA combo. I find that it really makes my skin look healthy and balanced and keeps breakouts at bay. I usually use niacinamide products at night because I tend to get the most oily over night. Love it so much!💕 FARMACY - Honeymoon Glow Serum Price: $58/1 oz Ingredients: AHA, BHA, flower acids, honey, HA Thoughts: Easily my favorite chemical exfoliator! Much gentler than The Ordinary - AHA 30% + BHA 2% Peeling Solution which I do love but rarely feel that I am able to use because my skin is easily sensitized, but this farmacy serum gets the job done and I LOVE that its a serum that I can leave on over night and wake up to soft glowy skin! PAULA'S CHOICE - Defense Antioxidant Pore Purifier Price: $31/1 oz Ingredients: salicylic acid, vit C, licorice root, ceramides, coq10, other antioxidants Thoughts: this is my GO TO morning serum! Not only does it clear my pores and keep my oil production at bay, as well as reduce the inflammation of any acne I’m experiencing, its also very hydrating and protects your skin from free radicals and aging! Its really such a well rounded product that does a bit of everything and works so well, my favorite PC product ❤️ Krave - Great Barrier Relief Price: $28/45 mL Ingredients: tamanu, sunflower, & rosehip oils, squalane, vit b3, ceramides Thoughts: a GREAT moisturizer for when your skin is super dehydrated or sensitive, it really gives a great reset. I gave it 4 stars because its marketed as a serum when its very much a cream-consistency, and I cant use it too often because the oils tend to clog my T zone. However it definitely does what its meant to do and when nothing else helps, this product DOES! Have you tried these serums? Whats your favorite? Lmk any questions you have!!

Next on my list to review....
Here's my latest skin haul awaiting to arrive in the mail. I'll be trying and reviewing to give you my truthful opinion on how these work for me and why I think they are (or are not) a good product. Have you personally tried any of these? Sound off in the comments your thoughts. Give me time to get through each of these products since I'll be trying them out for atleast a week at a time.

The Ordinary products for acne prone skin✨
Th Ordinary has been one of my favorite brands for some time now. I love trying new products from them knowing it won’t break the bank. I previously had a post about a few of their serums but I’ve tried to branch out since. Here’s my experience with a few new TO products as well as some of my all time favorites: The Ordinary - Glycolic Acid 7% Toning Solution - such a versatile product! I’ve used it for my underarms as deodorant, sometimes my feet to get rid of dead skin cells, my butt for buttne and lastly, on my face as a gentle exfoliator! I love it for all of these uses and at under $9 for 8fl oz I think it’s an amazing deal! The Ordinary - Natural Moisturizing Factors + HA - This moisturizer is okay. It’s too thick for my oily skin and leaves a matte finish, which isn’t something I particularly like. When my skin gets too dry I love using it because it instantly moisturizes but it’s more of a spot moisturizer for me than an all face one. The Ordinary - AHA 30% + BHA 2% Peeling Solution - absolute favorite! I’m on to my second bottle now. It definitely burns or stings sometimes no matter how many times you’ve used it but I’m okay with it since it does such a great job at exfoliating. I only keep it for up to 10 min and use it 1-2 times a week, mostly once now though since I don’t want to further dry my face. The Ordinary - Granactive Retinoid 2% in Squalane - this product did absolutely nothing for my face. I used it for a couple of months and my skin would refuse to absorb it, so it stayed pretty oily which I hated. I also saw no benefits to my under eye fine lines. The Ordinary - Niacinamide 10% + Zinc 1% - this is my third bottle of this serum and this time I opted for the 60ml one as opposed to the 30ml. I use it daily and once I got to figure out the exact amount my face needs, it’s been working wonders. My face feels brighter and smoother which is why I’ve continued repurchasing. The Ordinary - Azelaic Acid Suspension 10% - purchased this product to help with hyperpigmentation and I am still to see any major differences. My skin feels better overall but I’m not sure whether it’s solely because of this product. It’s a non oily cream which is a plus for me, I’ll continue to use it until it’s done but not sure whether I’ll repurchase.

Is this $125 Detox Night Cream Worth It?
Hey Cherie Fam 🍒 I have been doing makeup looks and raving about my recent make up purchases lately. I thought it’s time to give the skin care products I’ve been loving lately some attention. You know that you can’t have great makeup unless you have great a great makeup base aka having a great skin care routine. I received Grown Alchemist Detox Night Cream on my November premium box from Boxycharm. I have a somewhat strict skin care routine and I am skeptical introducing a new product to my routine. I researched this brand thoroughly and read hundreds of reviews online. I also examined the ingredient list. Grown Alchemist is founded by brothers who discovered ground breaking research that proved the continuous use of natural ingredients. They developed formulas with a unique synergy between biology and cosmetic chemistry. Their headquarters are located in Melbourne, Australia. (Source: website) The detox night cream is described as a detoxifying cream formulated with peptide-3, echinacea vitamins, hyaluronic acid and essential omega fatty acids such as reishi extract. This product claims to regenerate the skin, reducing the appearance of fine lines + wrinkles resulting in radiant and youthful looking skin. This product retails for $125 USD for 40ml. #Grown Alchemist - Detox Night Cream[products]# I actually really like this product. I use it with my DE framboos and The Ordinary virgin marula oil at night. I noticed my skin is a lot more glowy and I have less pores and brighter skin when I wake up in the morning. It has a thick consistency, but doesn’t feel heavy and has a scent similar to roses. I am actually not a fan of the smell because I prefer no fragrance. I think this is the perfect night cream especially during the winter months. However, I will not be repurchasing when I run out. While I am a fan of this product and think it works well, I don’t think it’s worth $125 for a 40ml. There are cheaper alternatives in the market with the same ingredients. If money isn’t an issue to you, then I say go for it! I saw a huge difference within a week. It’s just not in my budget unfortunately. DRUNK ELEPHANT - T.L.C. Framboos Glycolic Resurfacing Night Serum The Ordinary - 100% Cold Pressed Virgin Marula Oil Conclusion: Great product and I saw a difference within a week, but it’s too pricy and will not re-purchase because there are alternative brands in the market with the same ingredients for a fraction of the price. Xoxo, Francesca 💋

Products Getting Me Through Winter! ❄
Since I can remember I've had oily to combination skin, until this winter. It's been a rough one! My skin has been SO dry, and it's hard to keep up with it. Especially since I'm prone to acne and clogged pores, so I can't use a lot of heavy creams and pore clogging products. These I wouldn't be able to live without this winter! COSRX - Advanced Snail 96 Mucin Power Essence 🐌 I love this essence! This is a Korean product (Korean skin care will always be a hit). And it's made with Snail Mucin, weird right? This contains 96% snail mucin, which has incredible healing and antimicrobial properties. It promotes collagen production and aids in skin regeneration. And it's a top pick for dry skin types because of its amazing ability to hydrate. This has a jelly-like texture and I find myself ALWAYS reaching for this. Most of the claimed benefits do come with time. Another product I'm loving is the DRUNK ELEPHANT - B-Hydra Intensive Hydration Serum 💧This is a serum that came in a DE kit and I really want the full size! This seriously feels like a cold drink of water for your skin. It's lightweight and spreads nicely. It not only has Sodium Hyaluronate, (which is like hyarulonic Acid on steroids) but also Pineapple Ceramide and provitamin B5, an amazing humectant. As well as a lentil/apple/watermelon complex. It's not crazy different from other Hyarulonic Acid serums I've tried, but it's great! I finally got to try the cult favorite DRUNK ELEPHANT - Protini Polypeptide Cream . And wow I'm glad I did! This cream does have a few possible pore clogging ingredients so I was afraid to use it, but It's helped my dryness so much! It feels sooo moisturizing and soothing. I love that this is a protein moisturizer that has peptides, growth factors, amino acids, and pygmy waterlily to improve your overall skin health. This is an amazing anti-aging and skin strengthening moisturizer. I love using this it's a great experience. I already reviewed this incredible product, the Glossier. - Balm Dotcom 👄 It's become a staple lip balm for me. It's extremely hydrating and packed with antioxidants and natural emollients. It has Castor Oil, Beeswax, and Lanolin to seal in moisture. It leaves my lips looking sooo hydrated and smooth. It's THE perfect lip balm and I am obsessed. Feel free to comment or ask any questions below 💗

drunk elephant review with fungal acne🐘💗
as someone with fungal acne, buying the same products can be reaaallyyy boring. so this is my review of drunk elephant as someone with fungal acne!! * disclaimer, NONE of these products are fungal acne safe!! use at your own risk * DRUNK ELEPHANT - Slaai Makeup-Melting Butter Cleanser this cleansing balm doesn’t really emulsify when you activate it with water, leaving a really oily feeling😕 and doesn’t remove all my makeup DRUNK ELEPHANT - Beste No. 9 Jelly Cleanser Deluxe Sample this is a really nice gentle foaming cleanser... and thats pretty much it. DRUNK ELEPHANT - B-Hydra Intensive Hydration Serum i love this serum! its a lovely gel serum that absorbs in quickly and is greak at oil control DRUNK ELEPHANT - C-Firma Vitamin C Day Serum this serum is a little tricky, i haven’t really noticed a difference in my skin in terms if brightness, i do have a bit of dark spots and they haven’t budged. not to mention this formulation is a rip off of the SKINCEUTICALS - C E Ferulic With 15% L-Ascorbic Acid Vitamin C Serum  DRUNK ELEPHANT - Lala Retro Whipped Cream this is a thicc moisturizer that surprisingly doesn’t leave my oily skin looking greasy af. its a good moisturizer for dry combo skin!  DRUNK ELEPHANT - Protini Polypeptide Cream this moisturizer feels exactly like the lala retro... its just 8 dollars more expensive DRUNK ELEPHANT - T.L.C. Sukari Babyfacial Mask this mask burns so bad the first 20 seconds but then it settles down. i really havent seen a difference in my skin so DRUNK ELEPHANT - Virgin Marula Luxury Facial Oil ive only used this oil a few times but wow it really makes your skin feel super soft and dewy DRUNK ELEPHANT - Lippe Balm DRUNK ELEPHANT - Lippe Balm i love this lip balm but its 16 dollars and the claim are completely false! in conclusion, i wont be repurchasing anymore of drunk elephant products because in reality they are just good products... nothing too special ESPECIALLY for the price. they aslo didn’t want to provide information about the percentage of black employees during the Pull Up Or Shut Up movement so yeah. their aesthetic is cute but ive grown out of this phase 😀 like and save!! xo melanie

THE ORDINARY HAUL UPDATE
the products I have purchased have been amazing, I'm absolutely in love my morning routine now is cleanse with squalaneThe Ordinary - Squalane Cleanser apply TO The Ordinary - Amino Acids + B5 then moisturize with CeraVe - CeraVe Moisturising Cream and what I forgot to put in my first post, I finish off with sun bum - Face Lotion SPF 50 before my makeup evening, cleanse again, use the The Ordinary - Glycolic Acid 7% Toning Solution(please don't use if you have sensitive skin) my skin is used to retinoids from previous attempts at fixing my skin, and this product leaves me feeling clean, but sensitive skin can have a very different reaction then I mix together The Ordinary - Hyaluronic Acid 2% + B5withThe Ordinary - 100% Niacinamide Powder it comes with a little scoop and I use the recommended 1/4 scoop mixed with the hyaluronic acid. then I use the same moisturizer Now let's talk about my thoughts! I love the cleanser, it leaves me smooth, not dry, not right, but I feel super clean like the days dirt is just gone which is fantastic. the purge process has definitely started, but I just use acne patches and the purge so far isn't that bad. mixing the niacinamide with hyaluronic has been fantastic for me! I never liked the niacinamide with zinc, the zinc irritated my skin and I would get these pustules along my jaw bone which haven't made an appearance since I switched, so it was definitely the zinc. the amino acid serum, this one I'm conflicted. it has helped in preventing breakouts while wearing makeup, but it's so watery I would've preferred if it came in a spray bottle for easier application. not sure if I'd repurchase the hyaluronic could probably do what it's been doing to my skin. and the toner! arguably the most controversial of these products. this has helped brighten my skin so far, and my pores look so much smaller! that's probably the hydrating products I've been using, but I also haven't gotten blackheads clogging said pores either so I think it's a bit of both! I'm curious to see how effective this routine will be during my more hormonal days, I will continue to update!

My Acne Skincare Routine - Results in 4 Days✨
I have always struggled with dry skin + acne since I was 18 and the moment I saw significant results on my acne, I knew that the only way I could find the one product to work on my skin type is if I get myself educated and open to trying out new things even if I think it won’t work since I am acne-prone. SWIPE LEFT TO SEE MY RESULTS: I started taking photos of myself to keep track of what I’ve been using that I can’t see by looking in the mirror everyday! (PRO TIP) So, I’m so glad to finally share this for everyone to keep in mind when trying out products and hopefully it will encourage you to try it out for yourself. Of course you need to do your research but hey, skincare is all about trial and error right? At least now you know what you don’t know! Here’s a sneak peak of my acne skincare routine👇🏼 DAILY AM & PM ROUTINE: Cetaphil - Cetaphil Gentle Foaming Cleanser 1 squeeze + to gentle cleanse my sensitive skin The Ordinary - Niacinamide 10% + Zinc 1% 2 drops + for extra and clear overall imperfections The Ordinary - Hyaluronic Acid 2% + B5 2-3 drops + bring hydration to my skin CeraVe - Moisturizing Cream For Normal To Dry Skin 1 inch or fingertip size + to moisturize CeraVe - Ultra-Light Moisturizing Lotion SPF 30 For Normal To Oily Skin half a pump + I use it as my sunscreen for anti-aging Benzagel - Acne Gel 5% the reason why I got results in 4 days! Less is more due to concentration. I only applied on acne spots A few tips while using the products + keep in mind: For each products, I wait 1 min each to let it seep in to my skin applied by pressing the product on my skin to avoid premature aging applied my moisturizer and sunscreen lifting upwards (never down or circular motion) and enough to disperse the product but not as much touching my skin, if that makes sense I stopped picking my skin especially even if it was flaky! I had that habit for a couple of months which made my acne worst with marks before I tried the benzoly. So please take everyone’s advise on this! If you had to scratch your nose or you’re itchy, I usually just lightly press my fingernails on my skin. Weird but it helped to avoid irritation while I have my products on and if your hands are 100% clean, it won’t do anything + itch is gone! I hope you understood what I mean by pressing your fingernails Consistency and discpline is key! I don’t know why people don’t include disciple because without it, consistency is nothing. It’s also like saying something you don’t mean Notice that I include how much I used? Less is more and clearly, you can see the difference Notice how I only took a photo on the left side of my face? That can only mean because of my pillow. Please change it! Of course 4 days isn’t enough to get clear skin but it’s always a step closer to reach my goals so patience is also key!

Retinol Alternative
I was recently sent this Caudalie serum via Octoly, gifted by Caudalie. I’m a long time user of their CAUDALIE - Vinoperfect Radiance Serum The Brightening Solution so I was excited to be able to give this a try. First off, I love the bottle. It’s a pink frosted glass that has the best way to dispense the product. You can turn the nozzle to lock it as well. One pump covers my face and neck so I typically use 1.5 pumps to cover my décolletage as well. I use it both am/pm and apply it after toning. It does have a slight perfume scent to it. This is why I took one ⭐️ away. It’s not overwhelming and doesn’t linger but I much prefer my skincare without fragrance. It leaves no tacky residue. I’ve been using it now for 2.5 weeks so I cannot determine if it’s making any changes. That’s my one complaint about Octoly is you have to have your review in within 21 days and that to me isn’t long enough to have results from a product like this. For a wash, moisturizer or sunscreen it’s fine but it can take up to 3 months before any results can be seen with serums. I usually won’t do a review until it’s been apart of my routine for over 30 days. What I can say is this hasn’t caused me any irritation and I do feel in combination with my other skincare products I will indeed see positive change. I’m now 47 (🙈) and can proudly say I have hardly a visible line to be seen. Being a “mature” woman comes with some unfortunate flaws (although I like to say every line or spot I can see tells about my life journey- except the stubborn acne scars!). One worry I have looking at the woman in my family is sagging skin. It’s definitely genetic. So I will be doing all I can to keep this face firm! And this serum promises to do so. ——— This oil-free serum visibly firms, lifts & reduces the look of fine lines with Caudalie's exclusive patented alternative to retinol to visibly firm skin. This serum has the highest concentration of Caudalie's exclusive patent Resveratrol + Hyaluronic acid + Vegan collagen alternative. This patented blend is a clean and non-irritating retinol alternative, proven to be 2X more effective than retinol to visibly firm skin. —— Once I hit the bottom of the bottle (probably 2.5-3 months) I will know if it’s a repurchase. For now, it’s still up in the air. I will be sure to do a follow up on this when I do finish it. I’m thankful to Caudalie & Octoly for the opportunity to try this out. Much ❤️ skinnies 🍒

Weekly Treatment Schedule
I have a set, written down schedule for all my treatments for the month, because I have a really bad memory and find that if I don’t write stuff down I tend to over use or under use the products. This is how my routine was all through 2020, and have had no problem so far. I use The Ordinary - Retinol 0.5% in Squalane 3 times a week, on Monday’s, Wednesday’s and Saturday’s. I’m pretty experienced when it comes to retinol, so I feel comfortable using it 3 times a week. This is also the only one of my schedules that isn’t set in stone. When my skin is feeling more sensitive, or is feeling very dry, I might only use this 2 times a week. I exfoliate using the YOUTH TO THE PEOPLE - Kombucha + 11% AHA Exfoliation Power Toner and the SUNDAY RILEY - Good Genes All in One Lactic Acid Treatment 2 times a week on Tuesday’s and Sunday’s. I usually use these on the same days, but again, if my skin is feeling sensitive or dry, I will leave out the toner and just use the serum. I use The Ordinary - AHA 30% + BHA 2% Peeling Solution once a week for 10 minutes, I use this on Thursday’s and Friday’s are my resting day where I focus on repairing and hydrating my skin. 📍= product was sent to me for free

Daytime Routine
Recently I’ve gone through a lot of products and emptied a couple favourites, so I’ve changed up some products in my routine and thought I would do an updated day time routine. My first step is always cleansing, I haven’t gone through my comfort zone - comfort zone Essential Cleansing Milk but I’m pretty close to done, over half way, but it should last me at least another month. Next I spray my face with the YOUTH TO THE PEOPLE - Adaptogen Soothe + Hydrate Activated Mist with Reishi + Ashwagandha and immediately put on the Dr Dennis Gross - Stress Rescue Super Serum with Niacinamide (📍). I’ve only been using this Youth to the People spay for a month, but I’ve already seen it make a huge difference in my glowiness and hydration through the day. The serum has also improved my skin a lot as my skin is sensitive to vitamin c, this has the brightening (niacinamide) and the antioxidant protection (goji fruit) that a vitamin c serum would have, without the irritation. Next I put on my The Ordinary - Caffeine Solution 5% + EGCG (📍) eye cream/serum, this helps to de puff my under eyes in the morning. My last three steps are to moisturizer with the CAUDALIE - Vinoperfect Instant Brightening Moisturizer (📍), apply my current SPF which is the THANK YOU FARMER - Sun Project Water Sun Cream and moisturizer my lips with the Glossier. - Balm Dotcom . I also want to start a new system in my posts, products with a 📍behind it on my posts, I received for free, as I’m trying to be more conscious of that. I’ve gone back on past posts and utilized this system. Thanks for reading! 📍= product was sent to me for free

Provence Beauty Kale + Niacinamide Facial Serum
Provence Beauty Kale + Niacinamide Facial Serum
I purchased this at Marshall’s for $5.99, because I was out of my usual Niacinamide and it was sold out online. The price was appealing and the addition of Kale seemed gimmicky but I grabbed it anyways. I’ve been using it consistently for about six weeks or so, and it fit right in as a replacement for my usual niacinamide serum. This does what it says on the bottle “hydrates and soothes dry skin”, in addition to improving overall skin texture. The texture of the serum is more watery than I am used to in a serum, green in color and has a slight smell but it is not unpleasant. It leaves your face slightly sticky but not in an uncomfortable way. I would recommend this product because it works and the price is great but I am only giving it 3 stars because I have never seen it in a store after running into it that one time at Marshall’s.

So these are the products I’ve been using for over a month now for my skin in the morning!! I start with the Cetaphil - Daily Facial Cleanser love how gentle and easy this wash is. Never leaves my skin dry or tight and feels like the perfect step one. Then I move on to the THAYERS - Witch Hazel Astringent (the rose petal). I have never used a toner before and since I’m scared of drying out my skin I went with this easier option and I love it, the smell is super soft and I do believe its helping out with my pesky pores. Once thats dry I apply my serums: The Ordinary - Hyaluronic Acid 2% + B5 & ELEMIS - Absolute Eye Serum I got these both as gifts and for now I’m giving them a 4. The Ordinary’s serum is fine but its just that I dont think it add much to my skin and it is a little sticky - and as for elemis my biggest concern is dark circles and this just doesn’t cut it. But I’ll continue to use both until they’re empty! Then I top off with The Ordinary - Natural Moisturizing Factors + HA (also a gift) a little goes a long way with this one, but I think it flakes a bit after it dries which I dislike. Finally, theres the #Palmers - Coconut Water Facial Mist[products]#[FiveStars] I bought this cause I needed a mist in my routine and found this to be pretty simple and natural, love the smell and how it has vitamin e which is why I use at the end. It can also be used on hair which I love multipurpose products! And theDOCTOR ROGERS RESTORE - Healing Balm its amazing on my lips but once its gone my lips are pretty much dry again, also the sticky consistency doesn’t feel great other dry skin areas they recommend. So let me know what you all think! If you have any suggestions/tips please send my way. Currently looking into incorporating vitamin C as well as finding new eye/lip products!

I’d heard of these brands but
I’d heard of these brands but hadn’t had the chance to try them yet. My honest first impressions are: • • detox skinfood cleansing balm is a really smooth delicious texture made up of mostly soy bean oil and coconut oil. It also melts onto the skin beautifully. When washing it off I used a flannel, it left a slight residue but this would make a brilliant first cleanser I’d give it a 6.5/10 as it doesn’t quite beat my emmahardie cleanser when it comes to smell but overall the texture and ingredients feel nice. • • detox skinfood total face serum has many natural ingredients such as: kale, wheat grass, green tea, turmeric and more. It has a really nice light consistency and is a really nice humectant to have under an oil or moisturiser. So far I’d give it a 7.5/10 • • koconoi coconut hydrating face oil is made up of coconut oil, sunflower oil, moringa, and vitamin E. It’s a really fine oil and is lovely for facial massage. Personally being quite acne prone I don’t tend to use oils on my face but this isn’t too thick for me. Coconut oil can be comedogenic so I can’t comment on how this acts on my pores so far. First impressions I’d give it a 7/10 • • detoxbluedrops sea breeze face mask is made using diatomaceous earth which has many benefits to the skin. On application it’s nice and smooth and doesn’t dry the skin out too much. I’d give it a 7/10 • My experience with skinspace.co has been nothing but pleasant so I really do recommend ordering from them if there’s anything you’d like to try! Check out their page to see what brands they stock and their website also has many useful skincare guides skinspace.co 💕
