Good bye ingrown underarm hair!
I’ve always had sensitive skin and shaving is so irritating. I’ve struggled with ingrown hairs since I started removing hair from my body. Thanks to this app, I’ve read so many good things about using The Ordinary - Glycolic Acid 7% Toning Solution on your body to help with ingrown hair so I gave it a try. I paired this solution with THE CHEMISTRY BRAND - Inhibitif Deodorant and it’s been life changing!! Less hair growth, less odor and bye bye ingrown hairs! It’s my dream team for underarms!!!
Not fungal acne safe 😞
The Ordinary - Glycolic Acid 7% Toning Solution This product does contain Urea which helps fight fungal acne but it also contains Polysorbate 20 which triggers fungal acne ☹️ I didn’t notice any change while using this product but that’s probably because I’m prone to fungal acne breakouts 🤪

January Ipsy glam bag unboxing 📦
I subscribe to Ipsy’s glam bag, every month I get 5-6 new makeup/skincare brands to try out and always get so excited about it! This month the theme was dream it ☁️ I got my glam bag about a week ago and have been using these products and I wanted to rate them. The glam bag for this month is clear and has the word dream all over it. It’s actually cuter in person than the sneak peaks I saw online. I’m going to use this to hold all my scruncies and hair clips. Youth to the people kombucha + 11% AHA exfoliation toner: I got this in .5 oz so a decent amount. This is a nighttime toner. The first day I used it I felt a little bit of a tingly sensation that went away in a second. I’ve been using using this every other day to get my skin used to it. It definitely makes my skin feel smoother. It says to use this with a cotton round but I prefer to use my hands and pat it into the skin. YOUTH TO THE PEOPLE - Kombucha + 11% AHA Exfoliation Power Toner Glow on 5th beauty hydrate + renew replenishing night cream: I’ve never heard of this brand before and was very curious about it. It’s .5 oz First day I used it I was pleasantly surprised with this. It felt so nice on my skin and it was really moisturizing. The texture of this pretty creamy. Definitely excited to keep using this. #Glow on 5th - Hydrate and renew replenishing night cream[products]#[FiveStars] Seraphine botanicals camelina + strobe luminizing primer: a while ago Ipsy introduced me to this brand and I’ve liked all of their products including this one. This has a very subtle shine to it. It feels pretty moisturizing which is really great. The only eh thing to me is that in the sun it looks a little bit glittery(subtle glitter) the color is like pinkish/gold. Besides that, it’s a nice primer. SERAPHINE botanicals - Camelina + Strobe Luminizing Primer Super sativa wellness medicinal hydrating balm: it’s actually very moisturizing. I was a little afraid of this being ok when applying but would dry out my lips after a while but it did the opposite. It felt nice and didn’t have an overpowering smell of hemp seed oil scent that I hate. #Super sativa wellness - Medicinal hydrating balm[products]#[FourStars] Slmissglam angled brush in lilac: this is a super pretty brush. It’s also really soft and I started using this as my highlighter brush. I’ve received one other brush from this brand a while back and I still use it. slmissglam - Pink Glam Brush💕 Overall this was a great bag. 5/5 Pleasantly surprised with all these products and maybe I’ll actually repurchase some of these products I got in my bag.
Magic in a bottle!
YOUTH TO THE PEOPLE - Kombucha + 11% AHA Exfoliation Power Toner Like I said in my post about Sunday Riley’s Good Genes, I love exfoliation. I find it keeps my skin glowy and clear of texture, which is something I struggled with. This toner I heard really mixed things on and was a bit scared to purchase it. Some of my coworkers said that it left there skin feeling sticky but others said that it worked wonders! I bought it and I can see it from both sides. After I use this my skin feels a bit tacky, but it’s nothing that feels awful. I also don’t mind the sticky feeling on my skin. I like the balance of acids in this and how it works with my skin.

How to use: -Following your AM/PM cleansing routine, shake product into hands. -Apply onto entire face and pat gently into skin until absorbed. -If your skin is craving extra hydration, layer the product by reapplying. This is a pretty good toner/moisturizer especially for dry skin. Its very hydrating and gives your skin a boost. #Whoisnee #cheriecreator
Today is my WISHTREND Black Friday box opening day! Can you imagine how excited 😛 I’m have been looking at the box for two weeks before I get it out of quarantine. The longest two weeks ever!!! I tried COSRX - Low PH Good Morning Gel Cleanser and I'm from - Rice Toner today. I like both but I found my cheek a bit tight after the COSRX - Low PH Good Morning Gel Cleanser it might be something to do with the low PH so I may not use it everyday. I'm from - Rice Toner is the best, so hydrating which reminds me of LANEIGE - Cream Skin Toner & Moisturizer I will keep trying.....

centella asciatica + spironolactone = 🥰
it’s been a minute! here’s an update on my skin, picture on the left was taken during my peak worst skin of 2020 (June) and now (December). Between now and then, it’s been mainly credited to patience, attempting to pick my skin less, simplifying my routine, and a few amazing products that my skin just seems to really agree with. here’s my routine: Morning/Day: ￼Cetaphil - Gentle Skin Cleanser ￼ This amazing aloe / glycerine/ squalane moisturizer that I get from a local aesthetician. Linking here! It is SO light and doesn’t clog skin but moisturizers super well. I go thru this like crazy. 10/10 https://www.smartcosmeticstudio.com/shop/exzit-moisture ￼TULA SKINCARE - Cooling & Brightening Eye Balm ￼MARIO BADESCU - Facial Spray with Aloe, Herbs and Rosewater ￼DRUNK ELEPHANT - Lippe Balm Night: Same routine but adding: ￼COSRX - Centella Blemish Cream I literally would be LOST without this product. I use it over moisturizer- it’s pretty thick and probably should be used as a spot treatment, but I cover my face lightly in it. I found it’s been amazing for acne scars, healing, lightening, and soothing redness. ￼Nexcare - Nexcare Acne Blemish Cover Amazing and so cheap on amazon Or... ￼PanOxyl - PM Overnight Spot Patches love these but a little more expensive. I have that on in my picture on the right! I’m also on 100mg/ day of Spironolactone for about 6mo as prescribed by my Dermatologist. I recommend this as an alternative if no over the counter products are helping, it took a while to start working but saves me from the horrible and painful under skin pimples which would probably be convering my face if I weren’t taking this! 🤍
So, it’s been now over two weeks and these are the fab 5 that have helped my skin SO much from all my “facemask-acne”. Yes, it’s taken a little while, but I am happy that my breakouts are almost completely gone (except for a very stubborn one near my mouth). Please note: I do NOT recommend any of these products for anyone with sensitive skin, except for the face spray!! Ok, let’s go product by product now: ￼NEOSTRATA - Foaming Glycolic Wash I LOVE this face wash! Everything from the super soft foam texture, the small amount you need, and the barely there scent is great about it. The 4 and not 5 stars?? If you overuse it (like I have 🤦🏻♀️) it’ll dry out your skin a bit. So, careful !! ￼MARIO BADESCU - Facial Spray with Aloe, Herbs and Rosewater This little spray is everything to me. The main reason: it does NOT have any alcohol in it and therefore doesn’t dry my skin out. I like to use it as a “toner” in between my wash/treatments/moisturizer, but when I need a bit of hydration through the day, I just do a couple of sprays 😊 ￼Kate Somerville - Liquid ExfoliKate Triple Acid Resurfacing Treatment Ok, first things first: the one thing I CANNOT stand about this product is the smell 😩😩😩 It’s super strong and definitely not pleasant. However, when it comes to its effectiveness, I must say it’s great. My skin does feel clean, like I’ve taken away a thin layer of extra whatever was there (sorry lol, it’s hard to explain). It burns a bit on my breakouts, but it has helped reduce them too. Once again, another product NOT to be overdone, it’s a strong formula that contains Alpha Hydroxy Acid, which can be damaging to the skin when not used properly. PLEASE use at night only, and REMEMBER to use SPF during the day as well as minimum sun exposure for the sake of your skin staying healthy and getting the most benefit out of AHA’s!! ￼NEOSTRATA - Acne Clarifying Solution This solution right here is bomb! Yes, I said it. Has to be the best acne solution I’ve ever used. It does work great for my skin. I only dab a saturated cotton pad where I need it (breakouts mostly and oily parts of my face). It burns my breakouts, yes, I literally DO feel the burn lol, which it also means it’s working, right? 🤔 It’s also helped with my redness and the breakout bumps minimize noticeably! And last, but not least ￼MARIO BADESCU - Mario Badescu Drying Lotion Yes, another cult fave that I HAD to try myself lol. I think it’s effective and it does a good work by drying out breakouts (or anything that’s a pustule or such). My only complaint is that it takes a while to see the results. Maybe I was expecting it to be one of those “overnight miracle” products, but it just isn’t. It’s also recommended to be applied and left overnight, which I did, but in the morning my ugly little bumps were still there, just in the slow process of going away...

I got an allergic reaction to my entire routine!
So 2 years ago I woke up with my entire face swollen, red and dry. I had nothing else on my body so it had to be due to something in my face skincare routine. After going to the doctor and getting a steroid shot, I was advised by the allergist to patch test all the products i was using. The result: I WAS ALLERGIC TO ALL OF THEM This was especially weird because I had been using some of these products for over 2 years, but apparently it’s called contact dermatitis. These were the products I used: LA ROCHE-POSAY - Effaclar Purifying Foaming Gel -this one was recommended to me by my dermatologist. I don’t know that it was anything specifically about this cleanser that made me have the reaction but it was just too strong for my sensitive skin THAYERS - Witch Hazel Astringent - my theory is that this caused my reaction, because I had only been using it for 2 days before I woke up looking like a monster lol. it's still weird that it made me sensitive to my other products as well. Now I know that witch hazel is extremely sensitizing and will never use it again. CeraVe - CeraVe Moisturising Cream - I don’t see anything wrong with this product in terms of ingredients, but i tried it again recently and got a similar reaction, so I guess it’s just not for me Now it’s been 2 years since all of this happened, and I was slowly able to build up a routine that isn’t sensitizing to my already sensitive skin (check out my last post to see it!) Let mw know if you have any questions/comments/feedback :)
PLEASE HELP ❗️❗️❗️❗️
Recently, I have been experiencing terrible breakouts around my cheek, ear and jawline area. They are super painful and when they heal they leave behind terrible dark spots. This has taken a serious toll on my mental health and self esteem. If there is any products, diet of habits that you recommend for my struggle with acne please let me know. Thank you! These are the products I use in the Am: PLANTS FOR SKIN - African Black Soap Face and Body Bar THAYERS - Witch Hazel Astringent CeraVe - AM Facial Moisturizing Lotion SPF 30 Pm routine: PanOxyl - Acne Foaming Wash Benzoyl Peroxide 10% Maximum Strength THAYERS - Witch Hazel Astringent Cetaphil - Cetaphil Moisturizing Cream My exfoliants: TATCHA - The Rice Polish Foaming Enzyme Powder THE BODY SHOP - Vitamin C Glow-Revealing Liquid Peel Products I used in the past (that didn’t work) CeraVe - SA Smoothing Cleanser CeraVe - Hydrating Facial Cleanser bliss - Glow & Hydrate Day Serum bliss - Renew & Smooth Night Serum The Ordinary - Alpha Lipoic Acid 5%

All the toners and essences I have emptied
I want to name a few products worth trying: LANEIGE - Cream Skin Refiner so hydrating for winter. You may not need a moisturizer after if used in summer time. Will get a full size some time. fresh - Rose Deep Hydration Toner super comforting just hard to get the juice out at the end with all the flower petals. ORIGINS - Dr. Andrew Weil For Mega-Mushroom Relief & Resilience Soothing Treatment Lotion Limited Edition I didn’t think I would like it. Looks like a boring product but I then realize my skin was really stabilized during the period I used it. Will I get the full size? Maybe not. But for those of you with reactive skin, give a shot. fresh - Black Tea Kombucha Facial Treatment Essence love love love the smell and the touch on the face. Will consider repurchase. LA MER - The Treatment Lotion a bit oily feeling but hydrating. With the price point I will not get the full bottle. SK-II - Facial Treatment Essence (Pitera Essence) I suppose it’s good but after over a year journey with the biggest bottle I’m not going to get another one for now. But if you never had one, try it.
Sephora Sale: tried & true with some new! 🛍
If you haven’t yet stopped by Sephora for the holiday sale, make sure you do! The sale ends 11/9 and Beauty Insiders get 10% off, VIBs have 15% off, and Rouges have 20% off! Shop soon to take advantage of the sale for holiday shopping or a treat for yourself! TATCHA - The Liquid Silk Canvas: Featherweight Protective Primer - I absolutely love this primer! As a person with combination skin, I try to not use heavy primers so that my pores aren’t clogged and my makeup doesn’t last, but this primer is so light. In addition to making your skin look great by blurring pores and lines while reducing oil, the floral fragrance and packaging are beautiful. On light makeup days, I love wearing this, spot concealer, and a light round of setting powder as a base. Kiehl's - Ultra Facial Toner - This is a new find for me that I picked up the other day and have already seen incredible results from! My typical combination skin has been dry in patches on my forehead and nose making it hard for me to wear foundation and or see any effects from my other skincare products. I decided to change my toner after seeing some reviews of this online and I’m so glad I picked it up. The fragrance is minimal, if any at all, and the hydrating properties are simply incredible. My skin feels smooth and the dry flakes have vanished over two days. Yesterday, I was able to wear my foundation for the first time since the summer without my skin feeling tight or having to slather on moisturizer. If you struggle with dry skin, take advantage of the squalane in this toner to revamp your skin! NARS - Soft Matte Complete Concealer - I purchased this concealer after hearing Mikayla rave about it on tik tok and needing a replacement for my benefit - Benefit Boi-Ing Industrial Strength Concealer that I’ve used for about a year! In comparing the NARS and Benefit, the NARS concealer has about twice the product! I’m incredibly pleased with this concealer’s ability to blend into the skin, be matte while not drying, and the pot packaging! If you’re looking for something to coverup a spot here and there, this is it. fresh - Rose Deep Hydration Oil-Infused Serum - I have an undying love for fresh products that began with thefresh - Sugar Lip Treatment Sunscreen SPF 15 about two years ago. Since then, I have tried thefresh - Rose Face Mask , fresh - Rose Deep Hydration Toner , fresh - Lotus Anti- Aging Daily Moisturizer , and many more. This product is no exception and is one that is hydrating while not greasy. I’m totally aware that oil in the name can be unappealing, but it provides a nice healthy glow, softens, soothes, and absorbs so quickly. This is great face serum/oil that I recommend to people with dry, combination, normal skin and those who are not sensitive to fragrance.

It can be hard to find a toner that fits your skincare needs, so let me help you! I have recommendations for all skin types, but I personally believe that even if you have very oily skin your toner shouldn’t be stripping so all of these have hydrating properties. I have tried all of these toners and these are my favorites! GLOW RECIPE - Watermelon Glow PHA+BHA Pore-Tight Toner 🌼Oily and Combination Skin🌼 Because this toner has exfoliating acids in it, it is very beneficial for those with oily or combination skin. It can help those who struggle with acne and blackheads as well (no matter your skin type). It gently exfoliates the skin while still providing hydration. I love the thick texture and the scent the watermelon extract gives it. FIRST AID BEAUTY - Ultra Repair Wild Oat Hydrating Toner 🌸Dry, Combination, Normal, and Sensitive Skin🌸 This toner is AMAZING if you are looking for hydration. It has so many amazing ingredients including colloidal oatmeal which is actually considered an skin protectant by the FDA due to its effective soothing properties. Because of this it can be listed as an active ingredient. This toner has a watery but slightly thick consistency I really like. peach slices - Snail Rescue Blemish Busting Toner 🌼All Skin Types (Especially Dry)🌼 Out of all of these toners this is the one I think would work for pretty much everyone and is my personal favorite! It has acne fighting properties, it is SUPER hydrating (due to snail mucin being the first ingredient and addition of hyaluronic acid), there is no fragrance, and it sinks quickly into the skin. cocokind - Rosewater Facial Toner 🌸All Skin Types (Especially Combination)🌸 Rosewater toners are great for the skin. It is soothing, calms redness, and helps balance PH. This one in particular is my favorite. It uses one ingredient (rosewater) unlike other popular rosewater toners. If you have any tried any of these products or have any recommendations please let me know in the comments!
🍉Downsize those pores🍉Gentle PHA + BHA Toner
GLOW RECIPE - Watermelon Glow PHA+BHA Pore-Tight Toner Glow recipe gets a lot of hype! I mean a LOT! And yes I admit it I’ve jumped on the bandwagon 🙋♀️. But only after trying products and enjoying them and having good experiences. Yes their packaging is SO cute but what really matters is the ingredients, cause b***h they don’t lie! Ingredients: Opuntia Ficus-Indica (Cactus) Extract, Citrullus Lanatus (Watermelon) Fruit Extract, Glycerin, Hyaluronic Acid, Gluconolactone, Sodium Polyglutamate, Betaine Salicylate, Salix Alba (Willow) Bark Extract, Melaleuca Alternifolia (Tea Tree) Extract, Hibiscus Sabdariffa Flower Extract, Lactobacillus/Watermelon Fruit Ferment Extract, Cucumis Sativus (Cucumber) Fruit Extract, Saccharum Officinarum (Sugarcane) Extract, Glycyrrhiza Glabra (Licorice) Root Extract, Scutellaria Baicalensis Root Extract, Paeonia Suffruticosa Root Extract, Brassica Oleracea Capitata (Cabbage) Leaf Extract, Ipomoea Batatas Root Extract, Sorbitan Oleate, Levulinic Acid, Sodium Levulinate, Fragrance/Parfum ⭐️Key Ingredients⭐️ ￼🌵Cactus Water: being the first and most prevalent ingredient in the formula, this makes this toner not dry the s*** outta my face! Contains electrolytes and amino acids to help skin retain moisture. It also gives it that satisfying goopy gloppy texture. ￼🍉Watermelon Extract: Amino rich - hydrates, soothes, + improves appearance of fine lines + wrinkles ￼👩🔬Gluconolactone - a PHA - helps to resurface and smooth skin, while also removing buildup of dead skin cells. A very gentle gradual exfoliant that is great for sensitive skin types. 👩🔬BHAs - The formula includes 2 types of BHA: Willow Bark, a gentle, natural source of BHA, as well as sugarcane, birch, + royal azalea tree-derived Betaine Salicylate. One of the most effective ingredients for decongestant pores and reducing appearance of pores + blackheads. 💦Hyaluronic Acid - this helps deliver + lock in hydration so the formula is not drying or stripping to the skin This does contain less than 0.5% fragrance** 🍉My Experience🍉 I honestly love this product. I have been using the 40ml bottle (smaller one) since the begging of august and still have about 40% remaining. I use this am + pm because it’s gentle enough to do that for my skin (unless you’re using another strong exfoliating treatment or strong retinol). I have seen improvements in the texture of my skin + it has decongested my face a lot. Being someone that hasn’t taken care of their skin for, well, like 26 years out of my 27 year old life, there’s a lot of texture + gunk built up + work to be done. This is not a product that will fix your skin in a week, but I am confident that it is something I will keep in my skin care arsenal as it is good for my skin, it is a great preventative treatment to reduce the chances of pore buildup in the future. I am a strong believer in SLOW, consistent results over immediate results that can have negative consequences sometimes.

Tea Tree Water Collection #CherieParter 🍃
Hey y’all! So I love Korean skin care and their products are usually hits for me! Within the last 4weeks I’ve been using Some by Mi Tea Tree water products. And I have thoughts! To start I have sensitive combo skin and some of the problems I’ve been facing as of late are random breakouts. I’ve been moving and been under a lot of stress so I’ve been looking for some products to help combat. I first heard about Some by Mi on Soko Glam. Soko Glam is my fav skin care plug lol! They have such a wide variety of products. So first we have the SOME BY MI - AHA BHA PHA 30 Days Miracle Toner This product has the same consistency as most toners. It’s pretty watery. It also smells amazing! It’s like a mix of tea tree and peppermint but it’s very light and not overpowering at all. Ingredients list 🍃AHA 🍃BHA 🍃PHA These three chemical exfoliants help with smoothing out skin. These are the exfoliants I usually look for when going for a multi use toner. 🍃Tea Tree Water: Tea tree water is great for promoting clear skin by keeping acne at bay and also helps soothe already inflamed skin. 🍃Niacinamide:Targets wrinkle and dull skin 🍃Papaya Extracts 🍃Witch Hazel Extracts Both Extracts keep skin smooth and healthy! This toner is marketed towards sensitive skin because of the pH balance. And I would agree. My skin does not feel bothered or hasn’t had any bad reactions. It definitely is nice and moisturizing and helped control my breakouts 10/10 would recommend Next we have SOME BY MI - AHA-BHA-PHA 30 Days Miracle Serum This serum is a watery consistency for it to be a serum. It’s very important to shake this serum as it does have oils in it and tends to separate. It has the same scent as the toner so that’s nice! Key Ingredient List: 🍃AHA/BHA/PHA :Gentle Exfoliants 🍃Centella 14.5%: Centella is so good for inflammation! It’s great that this serum had such a high concentration of it because it definitely aided with all of my random breakouts. 🍃Multi layer of plant based oils to lock in moisture (Olive Fruit, Moringa Seed, Grapefruit, Orange...) Using this in combination with the toner has really done a good job targeting the breakouts. I use this after toner and before moisturizer. 10/10 would recommend Overall this collection is great for sensitive skin who’s having trouble with breakouts and inflammation. The ingredients are good for your skin and help promote moisture, brightening and pore care. Have you ever tried anything with Tea Tree water? Let me know Below ! BESOS 😘

Brand Spotlight: BLISS
Bliss is one of my favorite affordable drugstore clean and cruelty free brand. They are easily accessible, you find them at: Ulta, CVS, Target and Bliss.com, etc. I can’t help but love everything that I’ve tried from them. Here are current favorites and must haves: Left to right: ￼bliss - Clear Genius Clarifying Toner + Serum A mixture between toner and serum this is an awesome toner that is alcohol free, vegan, and packed with skin calming and pore refining ingredients : BHA, niacinamide, zinc and cica. ￼bliss - Bright Idea Vitamin C + Tri-Peptide Collagen Protecting & Brightening Moisturizer My day/ night cream depending on my mood and what serums I’m using. Sinks in the skin well and has great texture. ￼bliss - Drench & Quench Moisturizer This is comparable to TATCHA - The Water Cream very lightweight but pack a lot of moisture. It leaves my skin feeling a bit tacky which I love as a base before my primer and make up. ￼bliss - Rose Gold Rescue Moisturizer All times favorite basic moisturizer for day and night. I usually use this when either my skin has a break out and I have to go back to basics or when I’m using retinol or some other harsh serums. ￼bliss - Renew & Smooth Night Serum If you are new to glycolic acids or AHAs this is a great beginner’s choice. For me I thought this quite a gentle formula... I didn’t feel any discomfort or irritation. ￼bliss - Fabulips Lip Scrub This is my first lip scrub... so I don’t know if it’s good or not. It’s not bad. It’s moisturizing, exfoliating and didn’t taste bad. 😋 Clean product: 🌱No Parabens 🌱No Alcohol 🌱No Sulfates 🌱No Nuts 🌱No Oils 🌱No Silicones 🐰Cruelty Free 🐰 Vegan Have you tried any of their product? Tell me your favorites below. Thank you. Be Kind, Stay Beautiful
I received this Fall Vibes VoxBox complimentary from @influenster awhile back! [Review] ☁️ Peach Slices Acne Spot Dots: If you know me you know I LOVE pimple patches! I find them to be so easy & so convenient. If I’m going to work with the intention of keeping my mask on at all times of course, time to time I will put one or two on to keep any irritated spots from rubbing against my mask throughout the day! I do this especially if I’m doing my clinical rotations in the hospital, wearing the n95 mask as well as another mask on top, it’s pressed tight to my face which can cause a lot of irritation to my sensitive skin! These patches stick to my face pretty well which is great! 10/10 for me! ☁️ Chapstick: Total Hydration (Pretty in Pink): To be honest I am not into tinted lip balms! I prefer plain lip balms only because I prefer to wear either a very pigmented lipgloss or a lipstick over it. However, on days I’m running out the door quick and want to give my face that little pop of color, this chapstick comes in handy! The shade it not too deep which I like so it will give you a nice subtle color! ☁️ Bliss Clear Genius: Clarifying Toner and Serum: I have not had the chance to use this just yet. I am not sure how bliss really works for my skin anymore! I used them often in high school/early years of college but now that my skin has changed I am not sure how I feel about them! This is a brand great for teenage skin though in my opinion! I would love to know your thoughts on Bliss^ Have you tried their clarifying toner and serum? What are your thoughts? bliss - Clear Genius Clarifying Toner + Serum ChapStick - Total Hydration Complete Care SPF 15 + Color peach slices - Acne Spot Dots

Toners for Oily/Combination Skin
Kiehl's - Calendula Herbal Extract Alcohol Free Toner $24.00 for 4.2oz - This toner smells floral, uses real calendula, and balances your skin. I liked it, but later learned the ingredient niacinamide would be helpful for me to implement into my routine so I opted for GM. GOOD MOLECULES - Niacinamide Brightening Toner $14.00 for 4oz - Night and day difference. WOW. Very impressed. Love the feel of it. I have been using it for 3.5 weeks and I can’t wait to continue. I use it morning and night, except when I use an acid toner once a week. Definitely recommend!! Great price. Can be found on beautylish!

e.l.f.-Beautifully Bare Natural Glow Lotion
Newbies and old favorites// 🌿Dr. Jart Tiger Grass Re.Pair serum 🌿Drunk Elephant B-Hydra 🌿Origins Mega Mushroom Relief and Resilience 🌿Beautycounter Rejuvenating Eye Cream 🌿Beautycounter Calendula Lip Balm I’m a big fan of all things mushroom and have been reaching for the the Origins Mega-Mushroom lotion. I pat a couple layers on my clean face and always feel like I’m doing my skin a favor. It’s technically a lotion but the consistency is a clear liquid (like a toner or essence). Don’t let the name mislead you! Just try it!
DRUNK ELEPHANT-B-Hydra Intensive Hydration Serum
⚡️EXFOLIATION NIGHT ROUTINE⚡️
On Mondays, Thursdays, and Saturdays I exfoliate!! Monday nights are the days I apply my retinol, while Thursday and Saturday I use my regular chemical exfoliant ✨ 🌿CLEANSER- Krave - Matcha Hemp Hydrating Cleanser I LOVE this cleanser! I have combination-oily skin, but recently I’ve been trying to hydrate my skin more and it’s done WONDERS for my oil production! This cleanser is not stripping at all and leaves my skin soft and hydrated! ⚡️EXFOLIATOR- 💙RETINOL (Monday’s)- DIFFERIN - DIFFERIN Acne Treatment Gel I’ve been prescribed this by my doctor about a year ago and saw a huge difference with my acne. I just started using it again, and I forgot how much it helps. The only con is that I forget how drying and irritating it can be. Once a week is a good spot for me right now at this dosage. ☕️CHEMICAL- YOUTH TO THE PEOPLE - Kombucha + 11% AHA Exfoliation Power Toner This is my first chemical exfoliator and it’s lasting me a longgg time. I enjoy using this as it’s very good at deep cleansing my pores and getting extra dirt out of them. It has a ‘natural’ smell, aka not an amazing one. But still gets the job done! 💧SERUMS- ☁️The Ordinary - Niacinamide 10% + Zinc 1% I LOVE THIS it’s absolutely amazing at controlling my oil production and evening out my skin!!! I will say though, I haven’t noticed it help with my acne, but I don’t believe niacinamide is supposed to treat acne. 🌊The Ordinary - Hyaluronic Acid 2% + B5Just started using this, so can’t really rate it. But I love hyaluronic acid serums so I’m sure it’ll be great :) 💦FIRST AID BEAUTY - Ultra Repair Hydrating Serum this could be so good, but I’ve noticed that it burns my face, especially my cheeks when I apply it. Shame. 👀 EYE SERUM- The Ordinary - Caffeine Solution 5% + EGCG I’ve struggled my whole teenage life with bags under my eyes. It seemed as if it didn’t matter how much sleep I got, I was always puffy and baggy. This is helping reduce the bags so much!! Bless the ordinary 🐘MOISTURIZER- DRUNK ELEPHANT - Protini Polypeptide Cream I have been using this for about 2.5 weeks, and i just love the look and feel of my skin after I use it and when I wake up in the morning. It’s plump and hydrated 👄LIPS- LANEIGE - LANEIGE Lip Sleeping Mask this is only 3 stars because honestly I get the same results if I put on carmex before bed. It’s a nice experience with the spatula applicator and everything, but it’s not worth the money.
The Ordinary-Caffeine Solution 5% + EGCG
AM ROUTINE-newbie edition✨
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!
