Products that helped my acne
I’ve struggled with acne since 7th grade (I’m 20 now). I have used a lot of products and there are a handful I want to share that have really helped me get closer to my clear skin goal. PAULA'S CHOICE - Skin Perfecting 2% BHA Liquid Exfoliator this is by far the best product I’ve ever used. My skin looks smoother and my acne has subsided tremendously. I can’t get enough of this. (I use it twice a week, working up to three). I really do believe this product is essential for clearer skin! CeraVe - Daily Moisturizing Lotion For Normal To Dry Skin this moisturizer has been my go to for about 5 years. It always keeps my skin hydrated and really helped when I was on acne prescriptions because my skin would always get really dry. Curology - Curology formula I have a whole post dedicated to this, but it really did help me a lot. I like having dermatologist prescriptions over other treatments. So, this was a great option for me and worked wonders! CeraVe - Hydrating Face Cleanser For Normal To Dry Skin I used to use the harshest face washed out there and strip my skin completely. This cleanser really helped me repair my moisture barrier and was gentle. My skin started looking really good after about 12 uses of this. The Ordinary - Niacinamide 10% + Zinc 1% this stuff is a miracle in a bottle!! My face is way less sensitive and my oils are under control. The redness from my acne subsides with the help of this product and I find it to help my acne heal and become smaller faster. Kate Somerville - EradiKate Acne Treatment this treatment really helped me when I had minimal breakouts. This dried out my pimples over night and helped them go away faster. This was a really nice treatment and I plan on using it again when my face is clearer and I no longer feel the need to continue curology!!

No-Makeup Monday! (and a guide to hormonal acne)
I'm very proud of my skin right now considering I'm on my period and extremely hormonal. Of course the texture is THERE and REAL. (The lighting is just good.) On my period I usually get whiteheads on my nose & chin, painful mild acne on my hairline, & small annoying texture alllll over my cheeks. Which I AM experiencing, but I've been keeping under control better then ever! Do you experience hormonal acne? ⬇️ DON'T PICK, SQUEEZE, OR POP (or just keep it to a minimum) I get it, it's tempting, and our anxiety can get to us. Honestly, in my opinion, sometimes it's harmless. I removed a blackhead yesterday and immediately took the precautions afterwards. But I used to sit in front of my mirror for so long just picking at my entire face. Until I would step back and cry because my skin looked so ruined, red, and inflammed. I would cancel any plans I had coming up and dwell in my room. Get enough SLEEP! 💤 A good sleep schedule is so important for your skin, and not just when you're on your period. (But it definitely does help.) I've been on vacation and getting more sleep then normal. I've definitely noticed a difference in my skin! Keep your hair out of your face! 🚫 I never realized how much I could control the texture on my cheeks by just keeping my hair up & away from my face. It minimizes irritation and the spread of bacteria so much! Wash/switch out your pillowcases! 🛏 On my period I try to switch out my pillowcases after 2 consecutive uses. So every other night. I've noticed a huge difference in my hormonal acne by doing this. When i'm not on my period I switch them out every week. (or at least I try to.) But your pillowcase collects so much bacteria, even from your hair! And I definitely don't want my hair grease & products transferring onto my skin the next night. Don't overexfoliate or overuse treatments!⚠️ This was one of my biggest mistakes in the past, especially when on my period. I would go crazy on acids to try to clear up my skin. It's better to keep it consistent, or even go easier on your skin. Typically I do some kind of exfoliating every night, switching out between BHA and AHA's. So I use BHA about 3 times a week and AHA about 3 times a week. (And in the morning a vitamin C.) But this week, a few nights I used my COSRX - Advanced Snail 96 Mucin Power Essence And my La Roche Posay Toleriane fluide Oil free Moisturizer, and called it good. (A review about this moisturizer coming soon!) Other products that I love for my hormonal acne ⬇️ REN CLEAN SKINCARE - Ready Steady Glow Daily AHA Toner FARMACY - Deep Sweep elta md SKINCARE - UV Clear Broad Spectrum SPF 46 DRUNK ELEPHANT - B-Hydra Intensive Hydration Serum FOREO - LUNA Mini 2 Facial Cleansing Brush Fuchsia The Ordinary - Niacinamide 10% + Zinc 1% Kate Somerville - EradiKate Acne Treatment CeraVe - Acne Foaming Cream Face Cleanser for Sensitive Skin

FA safe but there is a Sulfur product I prefer
MARIO BADESCU - Mario Badescu Drying Lotion ^ has no fungal acne triggers Has 2 ingredients that help fight fungal acne: - Sulfur - Salicylic Acid Some people say it dries out there skin too much but I think it’s okay as a spot treatment. But it didn’t do much for my acne. A Sulfur spot treatment mask that works really well for me is De La Cruz - Sulfur Ointment, Acne Medication, Maximum Strength which you only leave on clean skin for 10 min then wash it off and use your regular skin care products

My Skincare Routine- 5 Months Later!
Long time no post! Since my first post regarding my skincare routine received quite a bit of attention, I decided to update and let you know what I’ve learned to do within the past few months. I still am using the same CeraVe - Foaming Facial Cleanser For Normal To Oily Skin cleanser, which will remain a long time favorite of mine. I am considering trying the SA cleanser once this runs out! My routine has simplified, as I really only moisturize and use The Ordinary - Niacinamide 10% + Zinc 1% in the morning and at night. I love how my once oily skin is now more manageable! I have come to learn that my skin really doesn’t agree with the The Ordinary - Lactic Acid 10% + HA serum. I was away at college and left it home, as I’ve been back for about a month I decided to try it again and my skin has NOT been happy. I could be wrong, but I believe this can be to blame. I have really switched over from my The Ordinary - AHA 30% + BHA 2% Peeling Solution to the The Ordinary - Salicylic Acid 2% Masque once a week, as I feel the latter is less harsh on my skin. I could possibly be allergic to the peeling solution, as again at school I left it out of my routine and saw better results. My holy grail product used to be the MARIO BADESCU - Mario Badescu Drying Lotion , which worked great but dried my skin out around the pimple over time. Now, acne patches are the way to go! I got these ones from Amazon, and at ~$10 for 125 patches, I see it as a complete win! Now I turn to you guys, as I still struggle with hormonal acne and now dry skin that the weather has changed. If there are any products you recommend (with a college students budget in mind!), don’t hesitate to comment below! I hope you all had safe and wonderful holidays with your loved ones! ❤️

SKIN UPDATE #3 🙌
my skin is looking so glowy so far! But still some acne and dark spots. My acne is definitely decreasing! Especially the ones deep under the skin. I also have a almost completely new skincare routine which I will be making a separate post on but I linked all the products in this post too!

I don’t know what to do
The first photo to the left is my left side of my face on November 3rd of 2020, the second photo the right is the left side of my face today Janurary 10th 2021 November 2nd is the first day I started tretinoin 0.025% Around December 15th I believe I decided to switch to differin instead because I had lost my Health insurance so I couldn’t afford it. Since then my skin care routine has comepletely changed Im not sure why my skin just keeps getting worse. My cysts and spots will go down and as soon as they are looking good I get a bunch of cystic spots all over, every single one of my closed comedones are turning into big red cysts and pimples that take forever to go away, none of my acne goes away within a few days. I feel like it’s just spreading and I’m getting more and more closed comedones as well. This is my routine *i started with tretinoin Nov 2nd 2020, I used it every 3 nights for a few weeks and then went on to use it every other night up until around December 15th 2020 I started using Differin i started using that every 3 nights for the first week and some, then I used it every other night for a few weeks and now I’ve been using it every single night consistently the past few weeks* AM •DIFFERIN - Daily Deep Cleanser BPO 5% OR VANICREAM - Gentle Facial Cleanser •LA ROCHE-POSAY - Toleriane Double Repair Face Moisturizer UV SPF 30 PM •VANICREAM - Gentle Facial Cleanser •e.l.f. - Holy Hydration! Face Cream - Fragrance Free •DIFFERIN - DIFFERIN Acne Treatment Gel My routine as you can see is very simple, my face is just getting worse and I don’t know if it’s because I’m purging still, or something is making me breakout?! I’m feeling hopeless 😩 my PIH and scaring is so bad already and it’s just getting worse :,( please help I’ll take any advice I could get. I’m seeing a derm on the 18th of this month I finally saved some money for. I’m hoping they can help me :(

a pimple patch that ACTUALLY works!
hey y’all! i’ve always been pretty skeptical about pimple patches. i figured they’d never work on my deep cystic acne, especially after using pimple patches such as zitsticka and peach slices... those didn’t seem to help at all. i decided to give pimple patches a second chance. i purchased two packs of these pimple patches from COSRX, and one pack of pimple patches from hero cosmetics. needless to say.... i will forever be re-purchasing these, especially because of how affordable they are: ONLY $6!!!!!! COSRX - Cosrx Acne Pimple Master Patch these patches are waterproof spot patches that protect blemishes from bacteria and absorb impurities overnight while encouraging healthy skin hydration. one patch can significantly reduce the appearance of an unwanted blemish so you wake up to happier skin (ulta description). as you can see, i had a humongousssssss pimple on my forehead, that was quite literally sticking out of my forehead. it was big and hard, and was so painful. i popped one of these bad boys on and by the next morning, IT WAS COMPLETELY FLAT. you can’t really tell through the photo, but i’m telling you, it pulled ALL of the pus out, and my pimple was F L A T. my next post will be hero cosmetic’s pimple patches!

Laneige and Cosrx K-Brand Review
Finally used all these products for long enough to be able to give you guys my opinion on them! I ordered all of these from Nudie Glow- a Korean skincare site based in Australia! I bought the COSRX - Advanced Snail 96 Mucin Power Essence to help repair my skin barrier after burning my face with BENZAC - Moderate Strength 5% Acne Gel 🙃 and it soothed and calmed my skin within 2 days (I’ll do a post on saving my barrier soon). It’s consistency is sticky and goopy, pretty much exactly as you’d expect from snail mucin, but it dries down well and quickly. It’s fragrance free & the quantity of product is great. I used it in place of hyaluronic acid for a few weeks & did find that it wasn’t quite enough hydration, but teamed with HA it’s super plumping & sits under other products (and makeup) really well. The LANEIGE - Cream Skin Refiner I bought to replace my LANEIGE - Cream Skin Toner & Moisturizer . They seem to be the exact same product, all I could find online is that the Refiner is meant to be even more hydrating than the toner. I haven’t noticed too much of a difference between the two but my skin is still responding really well to this. I don’t use a cotton pad but just tap it directly onto my skin, it sinks in super fast and I’ve not had a single dry patch since using this. A repeat purchase for sure. I was a little disappointed by theCOSRX - Centella Blemish Cream . It smells amazing (kinda earthy/fresh) and I bought it to also help soothe my barrier repair, which it did do but in terms of reducing redness in blemishes it seems to have no effect. It’s a super thick, opaque cream that you’re meant to spot treat with but as I was finding it’s soothing properties the most effective I just apply a thin layer all over my cheeks before bed. It definitely can’t be worn in the day due to the heavy white cast it leaves. Finally the COSRX - Cosrx Acne Pimple Master Patch have been really fun to use. I bought one sheet for $7AUD (but recently purchased another sheet on Amazon for $4AUD). It comes with a range of sizes, they’re all translucent circles. I would say they blend in quite well on fair skin, I even wore one to work once although someone did notice it eventually. They’re hydrocolloid patches meant to draw out impurities & offer a more hygienic alternative to popping pimples. They turn white over time on your skin which is the sign to take it off, but I did find that the patch would go white before having pulled anything out which did mean I wasted a couple thinking it was done. They are good at pulling white heads to the surface & keeping the spot protected from popping urges. They stay stuck on really well & have helped reduce scarring- although that could just be from preventing me from popping them, if you struggle with that I would highly recommend these! Let me know if you want more details! ✨

I Tried It All & An Acne Victory Emerged!
Hormonal acne is extremely difficult to completely eliminate unless you treat the cause- which, my hormone fluctuations aren’t going anywhere, so I’d gotten pretty good at controlling breakouts via salicylic acid and niacinamide while I used azelaic acid and alpha arbutin to fade any leftover spots. But nothing has helped minimize my hormonal breakouts quite like Tretinoin 0.05%, a prescription that was previously unattainable thanks to the $200 copay for the dermatologist visit and the $180 prescription cost. Apostrophe doesn’t require you to have insurance- they have a flat rate $20 “visit fee” during which you fill out a questionnaire (including your health history) and send a dermatologist photos of your skin. Then that $20 goes towards your first prescription fill in their pharmacy, which is only $60 the first time and $90 after, though each lotion bottle should last about 3+ months with recommended use. $30 a month for the gold standard topical anti-aging ingredient and clinically-proven acne treatment? Sign me tf up. After just a month using Apostrophe - Topical Formula , I saw a difference in the frequency of my blemishes, though with stress and mask wearing lately I’ve been breaking out again. So my doctor added Clindamycin into my mix... at no extra charge, just the flat $90 cost. For those with insurance, you can have your prescription filled at the pharmacy of your choice (with your insurance if it covers it), making it super convenient for those that don’t want to wait on shipping times, which was only a couple days for me. The entire process, from survey to first product application, took only a week. I didn’t experience much irritation when introducing Tretinoin, as I eliminated all exfoliants and a lot of the products I was using to reduce risk of sensitizing my skin- plus I didn’t (and still don’t, even around six months later) use it daily. My skin is now less oily, less prone to the small colorless bumps that plagued my forehead, and I don’t really get blackheads anymore. For the anti-aging aspect, I’m 27, so I have few signs of aging as far as my skin goes- I have noticed some slight improvement in a crease in my forehead I’ve had since I was 16, which is promising! I just can’t emphasize enough how, while this didn’t cure my acne or the cystic blemishes I get around my period, this lotion has been the best acne treatment I have tried so far. #CheriePartner

ZIT STICKA patches really work!!! 🙌🏽🙌🏽🙌🏽
Hey guys so I ordered this ZITSTICKA - Killa Kit off Amazon as a acne spot treatment and let me tell you these patches really work. I used to COSRX ones before and they were ok but nothing compared to zit sticka patches. I double cleansed before I got started. Step one you wipe your acne blemish-with the included wipe in the kit and step 2 you apply the patch which have these little darts, which you can definitely feel but don't hurt, over the blemish. After applying the spot treatment I then applied the rest of my skincare avoiding the treated area. I went to sleep and wake up with significantly reduced acne blemish. ***swipe to see photos*** I definitely will be reordering these off Amazon!!! Have you tried these?? What are your favorite acne spot treatment??!!

A struggling month
Since my progress post I’d figure I’d show that even those who have promoted they’ve healed their acne that it may and can be just for a moment, a month or a year and things can change in your life that could eventually alter your skin yet again. During the summer my skin was doing real good except the occasional monthly pimples from my period. However these past 2 months I’ve been breaking out along my jawline, chin, mouth and a little on the cheeks. It’s been pretty frustrating because I felt like I was me again and then boom I’m back to feeling insecure. I am currently testing new products to see a difference and changing/adding supplements and vitamins to help and will hope to update in a few months ! All I can say is that I am unemotional about this round of acne... and I think it helps to have a great support system to keep you positive because at the end of the day we are all beautiful no matter what may appear on our faces 😊 New products: COSRX - BHA Blackhead Power Liquid Helping with my pores and bringing my acne to surface Beauty of Joseon - Calming Serum : Green Tea + Panthenol Soothing my inflammatory acne YEOUTH - Retinol Serum with Hyaluronic Acid, Vitamin E and Aloe Vera Really excited to finally add a retinol and this one is great- not $$$ and absorbs nicely (won’t see full effects until another 2-3 weeks) Apart from that my routine has stayed the same and the rest of my face is pretty clear!

What are those tiny bumps? MILIA!
Our skin is quite complex, having various functions in order to maintain proper health. So many skin conditions can occur along the way, and some are more common than you may think. Milia affects more than 3 million people every year in the US (Mayo Clinic) causing many people to seek help from dermatologists and other resources. So, what is milia and how can we treat or prevent it? ☆What is it? Milia are small cysts that commonly occur on the face, but can also form on the body. The small, white cysts form due to keratin becoming trapped under the skin and clogging the pore. They are harmless, but can become quite the pest as they feel hard and often are seen in multiples throughout the face. It can happen to anyone of any age but is especially common in babies. ☆How to Treat and Prevent- Milia can present itself in adults due to skin damage or abrasion, as well as a build up of dead skin. Without the natural exfoliation process, a milia bump can form. In order to help prevent milia you want to ensure the skin is being exfoliated properly. Using a gentle AHA or BHA can keep the pores from clogging. This is also helpful for existing milia to rid of them faster! Two gentle options for all skin types: THE inkey LIST - Beta Hydroxy Acid CeraVe - Resurfacing Retinol Serum Milia can also form due to heavy or comedogenic creams. Coconut oil is an example of a pore clogging ingredient that can definitely cause milia if left sitting on the skin. When seen under the eyes, you may think the culprit is your daily eye cream. The skin around the eyes is very thin and sensitive. Ensure that you are also cleansing the area close to the eyes and keeping it clean. Most eye creams will not cause issues due to their special formulation, but opt for a lighter version if necessary. Treating milia is quite the tricky task. As an esthetician, I am trained in extracting all pimples and bumps on the skin. I can say that milia are quite difficult to get out correctly! Because there is no opening to the cyst, like a regular pimple would have, the extraction process requires creating a small opening to pop out the small cyst. This is best left to professionals! At home care requires daily cleansing and twice weekly exfoliation, and they can often come out on their own. As far as removal goes, put down the extractors and see a licensed esthetician or dermatologist to keep the skin protected. Have you ever experienced milia??🤔

*DUPE* for glossier’s zit stick!
so I splurged a few months ago on some, whad’ya know? glossier products! one of those items was the zit stick aka *breakout eraser* • the tag mentions that it’s not good for very sensitive skin or folks sensitive to benzoyl peroxide as it’s 5% BP (0.12 fl oz, 3.5ml) • it also mentions not to use this product when you’re using other topical acne medications at the same time due to increase in dryness or irritation (see a doctor if this happens!) • it’s also made with tea tree oil & capryloyl salicylic acid to help shrink blemishes & minimize swelling RESULTS: honestly it helped decrease some of the pimple but it’s not the strongest or super fast-acting as I’d hoped ~ and it took many days of usage to see the best results and it didn’t completely make it go away either ~ the pimple still usually lasted a week or so (as I usually used it on hormonal acne from periods) :/ ALTERNATIVE: drugstore buy: neutrogena rapid clear stubborn acne medicine spot treatment gel (1 fl oz), I’ve used this for literally yeaaars and it never fails. It may not be the absolute strongest acne spot (it is 10% BP though) treatment out there but just letting you know whats worked better for me ~ $7.49 @ target! *notes: glossier zit stick is cruelty free 🐰 & made without: gluten, soy, or dairy & neutrogena rapid clear is labeled as a *clean* product @ target! have you tried either of these products?? lemme know in the comments if you agree ☺️

Opinion on this Inkey List trio?
Hi everyone! I’m new to the skin care world. I used to just get drug store acne face washes, treatments, etc. but my acne never really went away completely. Ever. I never really had a fixed routine, every time my breakouts got worse, I would use Neutrogena - Rapid Clear Stubborn Acne Spot Gel and it did make significant improvements! However, I noticed some dry spots on my cheeks and I didn’t use it every day. I have combination skin, that is not sensitive at all and reacts positively fairly quickly to most things. After doing a bit of research and becoming a Hyram fan, I decided it was time for a full skin care routine, I do have quite a bit of time on my hands anyway. I recently bought THE inkey LIST - Niacinamide Oil Control Serum, THE inkey LIST - Glycolic Acid Exfoliating Tonerand THE inkey LIST - Beta Hydroxy Acid (BHA) Blemish + Blackhead Serum and a few other products that are compatible with each other. I just wanted to know your opinion on the combination of BHA and AHA — with the glycolic acid toner and the BHA serum. The glycolic acid toner, based on other reviews is pretty gentle exfoliation and I do have thick skin so I think it would be fine to use everyday. Would the combo cancel each other out or be twice as effective? Should I alternate between them every day and get a different toner as well? What do you think? Thank you!

Just okay for such an expensive product :/
First Impression: I opened the box and WOW is this small for $20! I never shop at Sephora and the only reason I bought this was because I received a $25 gift card recently but I was at least expecting this to be a little bit bigger. Like .5 fl oz instead of .34 maybe? I have heard amazing things from dozens of skincare sites so I couldn’t wait to try it! Opening: When I opened the tin, it looked thick due to its color, but once I put some on it was VERY thin. When I use my regular Clinique Moisture Surge (which is super hydrating) it is very lightweight but still a little bit heavier than this. Smells great! Next day: I have to say the combo of this and THE BODY SHOP - Jumbo Tea Tree Oil has me waking up with the smoothest skin but lately my skin has been feeling much drier due to the cold (not on just my face) and I don’t think it is as hydrating as I expected it to be. The cream dries very quickly which makes me want to put another layer on and when I wake up I still have dry spots. Like I said I feel VERY smooth but not as hydrated as I’d like. Verdict: I feel like this would definitely benefit me better around the summer/springtime when I’m not looking for complete re-hydration of my skin and more of a moisturizer but I do not think this is the holy grail I was expecting it to be. Try it out if you get the opportunity because all skin is different! But for my combination skin and hormonal acne, it’s gonna be a no from me, dawg :(

Pleasantly surprised by this money sucker!
Let me just start by saying that I have been looking at this beauty basically since it came out but never actually bought it because of how obnoxiously expensive it is. The only reason I did this month is because ulta was having a big Black Friday sale and I racked up $10 in points, scoring this product for half off! It has a very interesting smell but now that I’ve been using it for a month, I’ve gotten used to it. It’s very thick and creamy so you barely need any to cover your whole face. They suggest you keep it on your face for 5-20 minutes. I like to keep clay masks on longer usually but this one dries in about 5 minutes which is probably why their suggested time is so short. When you take it off, you can immediately see that your skin looks smoother and pores look smaller! This usually means that the product is drying your face so I top it with either my favorite THE BODY SHOP - Jumbo Tea Tree Oil (sorry Hyram I tried to stop for a little and my skin didn’t like it) and CLINIQUE - Moisture Surge Intense Skin Fortifying Hydrator which is on the more expensive side but hydrates the CRAP out of my skin and is so worth it. I don’t normally like clay masks because I do have combination skin and it tends to make me breakout more but this one is like a different breed!! Verdict: YES!!!!! 💖💖💖💖 one of the best clay masks I’ve used. Buy it!!!

⚡️EXFOLIATION NIGHT ROUTINE⚡️
⚡️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.

Brand Breakdown: Glossier
Brand Breakdown: Glossier
Hey guys welcome to my new series Brand Breakdown where I go in depth about the most popular products from a certain brand. Today we’re talking about Glossier. Glossier was founded in 2010 by Emily Weiss, Nick Axelrod, and Micheal Harper. Glossier focuses a lot on packaging and aesthetics, which is the main reason the brand went viral. It features skincare, makeup, body care, and fragrance. For the purpose of this post, we’ll be talking about their skincare products because those are the easiest to discuss without buying all the products. The first product we’ll discuss is the Glossier. - Milky Jelly Cleanser which is $18 for 6 fl oz. This cleanser has cleansing agents that are very gentle, to the point where it’s not a good cleanse. Other than that the only ingredients to note are glycerin which is hydrating and rose water, which really doesn’t do anything. This product is overall fine, but for the price I don’t think that it’s worth it because the ingredients are quite cheap and simple. Next is the Glossier. - Priming Moisturizer which costs $22 for 1.7 fl oz. I have two main problems with this moisturizer. First, it has a lot of potentially irritating essential oils and extracts, and secondly $22 for 1.7 fl oz!? That’s a VERY small amount of product for the price, about the size of their cloud paint blush. That said it has hyaluronic acid, Vitamin C, A, and E, as well as a mushroom extract that’s hydrating. I would say it’s an ok product, but the price is too high for it. Next up is the highly controversiaGlossier. - Futuredew Oil Serum Hybrid A lot of people complain it’s oily and doesn’t sink into the skin, such as in a review by @svvphia on Cherie. Similar to the Priming Moisturizer, you get a small amount of product for the price. How little? Exactly 1 fl oz. for $24. Futuredew also contains a lot of essential oils and extracts, but on the positive side it has a high concentration of glycerin and squalane which are both super hydrating. Our next product is theGlossier. - Balm Dotcom . This lip balm comes in 9 different flavors, and costs $12 for .5 fl oz. As far as ingredients it has essential oils and castor seed oil. It’s a great product but not worth the price. And our final product for today is theGlossier. - Zit Stick Breakout Eraser . This product is one of the most reasonably priced products Glossier has. It costs $14 for .12 fl oz., but considering how little you use per pimple its a fair price for a so called “breakout eraser”. This product contains Nicinamide which is good for acne, and Salicylic Acid which is great for removing sebum. I think it’s basically a concentrated serum, but it’s fine. So in conclusion Glossier makes products with semi irritating ingredients and cheap formulas, but at an expensive price point for the amount of product and quality you get. I would finish your Glossier skincare and then choose other products instead. Make sure to cheer for this post if you found it helpful and follow me for similar content! Happy 2021 y’all!!!! -Mae

Hey everybody! I recently joined this app and I’m so happy I did. I just started using these products on my normal to oily skin. Before this, I used to use DIFFERIN - Daily Refreshing Cleanser and OXY - Acne Medication With Benzoyl Peroxidebut I felt like it wasn’t doing the job. The first slide is my daily and nightly routine. The second slide is the face masks I use about once a week. I also use DIFFERIN - DIFFERIN Acne Treatment Gel as a spot treatment, but I forgot to include it in the photo🤦‍♀️. The pads in the second slide only come in handy if I have a major breakout on my face (they do the job) and I only use the pad in that area. Otherwise, the Clearasil - Rapid Rescue Deep Treatment Pads are too strong for me and sting. Please give me all of your feedback! I love hearing from others and I want to make sure I’m on the right track❤️ @cherie
