Korean Sunscreen!
Korean Sunscreen!
*dear, klairs - Soft Airy UV Essence SPF 50 PA ++++ *Bare with me as this is my first time using a sunscreen* Please give me any recommendations/ advice that you think will benefit my skin!! I appreciate it ❤️ S K I N / T Y P E 🍃 Combo Skin T-zone being the Oilest Cheeks being on the Normal/Dry side Acne Prone Pigment Scarring Sensitive Tendency to become Flush and Red when Touched Large Pores T H O U G H T S 💫 It is very light weight and fast absorbing Dear Klairs claims this is suitable for all skin types but personally I believe this is the best for oily skin considered it is water based and isn’t like other “shiny” spfs. The “shine” or “white cast” is not very visible. As it is a sunscreen you are bound to see some shine but depending on the kind of moisturizer you put on before hand, the “shine” does not look as greasy or as reflective. I especially noticed this when I switched from boscia - Cactus Water Moisturizer to íUNIK - Centella Calming Gel Cream which I will later do a review on. I don’t have hyper-sensitive skin but it still falls into the sensitive category. I didn’t experience any irritation the only issue was having my skin appeared red because I didn’t get enough product to apply which is less than a “dime-sized” amount. After using more I did not experience the redness again. It has a slight smell but it was nothing too alarmingly strong and once again this is a sunscreen. I’ve been questioning how I am going to reapply this when I start school again because I just don’t like touching my skin unless I am at home. I also fear breaking out if I reapply it but this hasn’t been a problem with the time first application. Honestly I think I’m just paranoid :) Compared to other sunscreens I’ve used as a kid, it leaves no residue or oily feeling as you are prepping your skin for a cleanse. The ingredient list is very good as this is a Korean brand (known to have innovated ingredients compared to U.S brands). Even if it’s a bit on the pricey side you get what you paid for. It is free from the following: Parabens, Sulfates, Alcohol, Silicon, EU- Allergen At the moment they do not test on animals but they are currently striving for a Cruelty-free🤍 and Vegetarian🌱 brand. P R O D U C T $ 💚 Not Including Shipping The picture shown is the 80 milliliter(ml)Full Size Bottle - 20/23$ Dear Klairs does not sell anything larger I purchased this bottle through an app called YesStyle sometimes they have discounts and you can search for reward codes to get some $ off the original price DISCLAIMER:*Companies like amazon shouldn’t be trusted since they are capable of selling fakes but give it a go if you yourself don’t trust the app, I haven’t experienced any reactions so far from other products I have purchased through their company* I would really like an alternative similar to this product since it is out my price range!

Worth it?
Worth it?
The Boscia cactus water moisturizer is an ultra light weight fast absorbing moisturizer that gives thirsty skin a sip of instant hydration for a soft, smooth, and simple complexion! It can be solutions for dryness, dullness, uneven texture, and loss of firmness and elasticity. The texture of this is a refreshing thick gel that feels so cooling on your face. I have used this for about 10 months and really like it in the summer time because after being in the sun it feels so refreshing to put this on after. I got it in a set with two other boscia items that I also love! It is very hydrating, didn’t break me out, and gave me awesome results with my dry skin! I would recommend this to all skin types and to try out definitely in the summer for the really nice cooling effect! It is worth the $38 for 1.61oz of product that will last a while! The Kiehls calendula serum infused water cream is a weightless water cream infused with concentrated calendula serum! It can be solutions for dryness, dullness, and uneven texture! It is best for normal to oily skin types. The texture of this is a lightweight gel-cream, that feels like a drink of water on your face! I absolutely love this cream but is definitely geared toward oily skin types! I received it as a promo code on Sephora about 5 months ago and it is amazing! It is very hydrating, didn’t break me out, and I didn’t see big results because my skin is on the dryer side and this is geared more for oily skin types! I would recommend this to others because it does have an amazing texture and feeling on the face it also smells so fresh. It is worth the $50 for 1.7oz for people with oily skin! The tatcha water cream is recommended for oily, normal to oily, pores, and anti-aging!! It is an oil-free , anti-aging water cream that releases a burst of skin-improving Japanese nutrients, powerful botanicals and optimal hydration for pure, poreless skin! It works because it is a unique water-burst cream breaks upon application to deeply deliver treatment benefits, hydrating without leaving skin sticky or greasy. It’s powerful ingredient, Japanese Wild Rose, visibly tightens pores and smoothes skin texture!! Also it is, Non-comedogenic, Non-irritating, Non-sensitizing, Dermatologist tested, and Cruelty-free! Additionally, formulated without, Mineral oil, synthetic fragrances, sulfate detergents, parabens, and phthalates!! I love this because it is great for the summer since it does not leave my skin oily or greasy! It is a bit pricey but if you have had issues with pores or any other of its benefits I think it is worth it! It is $68 for 1.7 ounces. It also smells very good and the texture feels very cool to the touch! I think it is worth it, the tatcha water cream is amazing and is so worth the price, they have amazing ingredients and antioxidant properties, and they are always right on there claims! The Boscia is also pretty good and is at a great price point to! That is my second favorite by far! The Kiehls is definitely not worth $50 at all! It is no where near as good as tatcha! It makes my skin feel oily and greasy and just doesn’t do anything good for my dry skin! But the Boscia is an amazing affordable option of the tatcha water cream! boscia - Cactus Water Moisturizer Kiehl's - Calendula Serum-Infused Water Cream TATCHA - The Water Cream

Here is my AM Skincare routine
Here is my AM Skincare routine! I have been really loving it so far! The thing that has made the biggest difference in my skin has definitely been the The Ordinary - Niacinamide 10% + Zinc 1% serum. This has by far made the biggest difference in the visibility of my pores and really helped control my oily face. I’ve even noticed it helped with my dark spots from acne. The PACIfICA - Glow Baby Super Lit Booster Serum is really nice and smells great but I’m not sure if it’s the best Vit C serum I’ve used. I don’t use them in the same routine, generally I’ll use one in the AM and the other in the PM. The boscia - Cactus Water Moisturizer is a really nice lightweight moisturizer that absorbed really quickly into my skin. It hasn’t clogged my pores or lead to any breakouts. And I use The Ordinary - Hyaluronic Acid 2% + B5 to add some extra lightweight moisture if my skin is feeling a little dry. It’s really nice and very affordable

Battle of the water creams
Battle of the water creams
As an oily person, I am forever looking for moisturizers that will mitigate my skin’s desire to leave me looking like a greased chicken within an hour of putting makeup. The key to reducing my skin’s predilection to overproduce is to feed it with moisture with my morning routine. The healthier my skin is the easier my acne scars will fade and hopefully be just a distant memory. That led me to purchasing a belif skin care set mid-2019. In the set was the belif - Aqua bomb , belif - Moisturizing Eye Bomband belif - Hungarian Water Essence. Let’s focus on the Aqua Bomb for now and compare it to a new frenemy later. 💦 belif - Aqua bomb is a lightweight, gel moisturizer that is supposed to hydrate your skin without feel heavy. It has three main ingredients: lady’s mantle to nurture your skin, ceramide 3 to help your skin retain water and glycerin to maintain moisture levels. It comes in three sizes, costing from $22 to $62. (The 1.68 oz./50mL tends to be the one that is included in kits. It costs $38 sold separately.) MY THOUGHTS: This is one of my favorite summertime moisturizers. You can layer it over or under anything and it WILL NOT PILL. 🙏🏾 I finished it within a year and now I am trying to get through my other moisturizers so I won’t be repurchasing this any time soon. (I may try the belif - The True Cream Moisturizing Bombbecause it is supposed to be aces at restoring the health of your skin’s barrier.) For: Dry, normal, combination and oily skin. Clean at Sephora? ✔️ Recommend? Yes. 🌵 boscia - Cactus Water Moisturizer was boscia’s response time the TATCHA - The Water Cream, PETER THOMAS ROTH - Water Drench Hyaluronic Cloud Cream and belif’s Aqua Bomb. It launched mid-2018 and I received it in a bountiful Sephora set, Skin Wonderland. It is a fast-absorbing gel that hydrated while helping combat the loss of elasticity and firmness. MY THOUGHTS: I dislike this product so much. It doesn’t layer well with a lot of products. It just wants to pill and separate. It leaves residue that resembles the peels of FREEMAN - Feeling Beautiful, Renewing Peel-Off Gel Mask, Cucumber. Not exactly what you want look like after using a $38 product. (I included a photo of what happened after I rubbed my face with it on.) For: Normal, combination and oily skin. Clean at Sephora? ✔️ Recommend? No.

Boscia Cactus Water Moisturizer 🌵
Boscia Cactus Water Moisturizer 🌵
I’m still fairly new to the skincare game and I’m still learning and trying to find products that make my skin feel happy. Sometimes I feel like the driest bitch alive and finding products that make me feel moisturized throughout the day has been a challenge until recently. My best friend who I refer to as ‘THEE SKIN GOD’ in my phone, has been helping me find products that have clean ingredients and make my skin feel good. My best friend and I were in Sephora when she showed me the Boscia line. First of all, I was in love with the packaging on sight. Second, the cactus moisturizer was the first product that caught my attention. I tried the tester that was out and it felt cool and nice on my hand. A few months later, I got a small trial size with my reward points and incorporated it into my morning skincare routine! The moisturizer is light and goes on clear. It’s not as heavy as a gel but it’s thicker than a face lotion. It doesn’t really have a smell but it does feel a little sticky like aloe gel but I don’t mind it. My face feels moisturized when I apply it after my toner and serum. A little bit goes a long way. I’m definitely buying a bigger size. I live in the sunshine state and I feel like this moisturizer is great for warmer weather. I tend to use thicker moisturizers when it gets colder or if I’m traveling somewhere that’s colder. However, down here in Florida, this moisturizer is perfect, lightweight, and just what I need. 10/10 tell a friend :D

This Cactus Moisturizer by Boscia is like a glass of water for your desert style skin. The texture is such a smooth,rich, and thick moisturizer that doesn’t feel tacky or sticky on the skin. It’s weightless on the skin and quickly dries for a nice and subtle look. This moisturizer is said to help with dry patchy skin and I definitely think it delivers!!! It’s definitely a product that you do not need much to massage throughout your entire face. I usually dab a little bit into my fingers and then spread across my face. Definitely let it completely dry before applying any other products. I would highly recommend this to someone with dry to combination style skin. It might be a bit too hydrating for oily skin. I have acne prone skin and this product worked very well with my unruly skin without causing any new breakouts!! boscia - Cactus Water Moisturizer
