Martian Mattifying Melting Water-Gel Toner
What It IsMartian Mattifying Melting Water-Gel Toner is formulated to target oily and acne-prone skin concerns. It immediately melts from a treatment gel to a water toner as it is massaged into the skin. Bentonite clay mattifies excess oil while visibly reducing pore size. Marshmallow and green tea soothe and diminish the look of redness for a calmer-feeling complexion, while cucumber and witch hazel extracts tone and tighten. Manuka, a relative of tea tree oil, in conjunction with black cumin and magnolia bark extracts, provides purifying properties to balance oily and problem skin conditions while promoting a visibly improved, clearer, smoother, and shine-free complexion. Skin is mattified and prepped for further skin care or color application. It also helps to keep foundation set all day.

Shea’s Get Unready With Me Routine 👋💋
Ok, so, as a Drag Queen, it is apparent that I wear A LOT of makeup, so as complicated at the getting ready process is, I need to dedicate a lot to successfully removing it. First... If you are wearing any glitter of ANY kind, it will be extremely important that it is removed FIRST. The best trick for removing glitter it to take a piece of duct tape, apply it to the areas that have glitter and then peel it off. I have found that using tape to remove glitter first is extremely important. Because once you start scrubbing your face, all it does is move the glitter around more. Once the glitter removal is complete, the next step is makeup removal. I enjoy ONE/SIZE - Go Off Makeup Dissolving Mist It’s a continuous mist thats infused with jojoba and rosehip oil. I spray it all over my face and neck, and massage the product in to break up all of the makeup. Normally I look either like a Jackson Pollock painting, or greased chimney sweep. After I have used the cream cleanser I go in with a ONE/SIZE - Go Off Juiciest Makeup Remover Wipes and wipe away the excess cream cleanser and makeup. I make sure to pay special attention to my eyelids, and lashes because the product tends to hide there. Next, I use SUNDAY RILEY - Ceramic Slip Cleanser for a nice gentle cleansing to remove any of the excess jojoba oil left behind by the Go Off mist. Toning is crucial. My favorite toner is SUNDAY RILEY - Martian Mattifying Melting Water-Gel Toner I love it because its a bit thicker than most toners since it is a gel, but it absorbs so well into the skin, and still leaves your pored open enough to handle more product. After toning, I like to use the SUNDAY RILEY - U.F.O. Ultra-Clarifying Face Oil to help my skin repair and fight of congestion after all the damage I have put it through. The oregano is great for that. Lastly, I use The Ordinary - Caffeine Solution 5% + EGCG under-eye serum to melt away any darkness and lock in brightening goodness.

Hormonal/Cystic Acne approved - They WORK
If you know me, you know The Ordinary is my first favorite brand and Sunday Riley is always competing hard with it to be on my Faves list. I am obsessed with these picks from them. I have my reasons to love this brand these products. Being Acne prone and dealing with a lot of skin texture, dullness and hyperpigmentation I always am looking for products that 'work'! No BS simply work, and these products work for me. I have seen dramatic changes in my skin when I use these. I'm going to order these from the most effective and my favorites to the least! Sunday Riley was one brand which was hell expensive for me but on the other side they worked really well. I don't purchase them often as I purchase TO, but whenever I can I don't rethink. If you want products that work these are the ones: 1. A+ Retinoid SUNDAY RILEY - A+ High-Dose Retinol Serum - This is my most favorite and most picked one from Sunday Riley. Guys, take my word on it this stuff is amazing. I love retinol and I know my skin responds in a certain way when I apply Retinoids. So, if some retinoids don't show the expected results I know they're not the ones for me. This Retinoid made my skin so soft, supple and healthy while taking care of those stubborn Hormonal cystic acne. Also, it exfoliates amazingly and reduces the look of PIH. ✨Exfoliates well ✨Reduces look of fine lines and wrinkles ✨Reduces Hyperpigmentation (PIH, Melasma) ✨Brightens and tightens skin ✨Makes skin soft and reduces irregular texture 2. Tidal SUNDAY RILEY - Tidal Brightening Enzyme Water Cream - This is second most loved product from SR. It's because it has Alpha Arbutin in it. Alpha Arbutin is an amazing brightening Anti-Oxidant that slows down the melanin production leading to reducing hyperpigmentation. This cream is actually a lightweight gel that gets absorbed in skin quickly and I have experienced a brighter, healthier skin with it. ✨Brightens complexion ✨Reduces Hyperpigmentation, slows down melanin production ✨Gel like texture doesn't sit heavy on skin ✨You can mix L-ascorbic powder or any vitamin C serum with it to boost it's brightening effect. 3. Vitamin C SUNDAY RILEY - C.E.O. Vitamin C Rich Hydration Cream - I love this cream in winters because of it's thick but hydrating texture. Love this cream as it's an amazing moisturizer for daytime regimen. ✨ Relatively thick and creamy ✨Hydrates skin ✨Reduces hyperpigmentation ✨Tightens skin and makes it plump ✨Lasts long because you only need a pea size with it 4. Lactic acid SUNDAY RILEY - Good Genes Glycolic Acid Treatment - This is an amazing product for someone who is new to AHAs and chemical exfoliation. It exfoliates skin in a very gentle way and doesn't irritate skin. I like the creamy, lightweight formula that is equally effective as serum or toners. ✨Mildly exfoliates ✨Doesn't irritate skin ✨Creamy formula that doesn't feel heavy ✨Makes skin softer and reduces texture in just one use ( Mainly because of Lactic acid/ AHA) 5. Martian SUNDAY RILEY - Martian Mattifying Melting Water-Gel Toner - This toner has an interesting formula, it comes out as foamy gel into watery toner when it touches skin! It's amazing. It's a great product for acne prone skin and people with active acne. It has Bentonite clay, green tea, witch hazel, and marshmallow extract helps chill out redness, reduce excess oil, and tighten pores. ✨ Matte, shine-free finish ✨Slightly cooling and soothing when applied ✨Reduces the redness and inflammation ✨Reduces skin irritation ✨Use this after Thermal water and you'll find it more soothing ✨Witch hazel in this formula doesn't work as astringent and doesn't strip skin.

I really recommend this one!👇 SUNDAY RILEY - Martian Mattifying Melting Water-Gel Toner Feature: This toner is especially suitable for oily and acne-prone skin. It has good shine control, it's refreshing and it minimizes the appearance of pores, leaving the skin with a healthy matte finish and preparing the skin for easier follow-up skincare absorption and subsequent makeup application. Scent: It smells like mint plus celery. Those who are after scented toners should take this into account and consider their choice wisely. Texture: It has a really magical texture! It's like a thin lotion when it's pumped out but it's easily absorbed once it's massaged onto the skin. It feels great on the skin and hydrates the skin really well! After all, people with oily, acne-prone skin find greasy and thick toners to be really unbearable. Directions: After cleansing in the morning and at night, gently pat this toner onto your face with your fingers or with cotton pads. It'll instantly change from a gel texture to a watery texture on the skin, and is very easily absorbed. If you have acne-prone skin, you don't need to follow up with other skincare products after using this toner, but still remember to wear a sunscreen if you're going somewhere with strong sunlight.

Toner for Oily Skin 👽
Sunday Riley was one of the first higher end skincare brands that I tried and swore by. Good Genes was my holy Grail, closely followed by Luna. Unfortunately since the Sephora reviews scandal I haven't been interested in supporting the brand. I do still enjoy their products but I don't agree with a brand writing their own reviews, I think it's unethical, but understanding that's my own opinion you may still want to try their products! The Martian Mattifying Melting Water-Gel Toner is made for acne-prone and oily skin. It contains betonite clay to absorb oil, tee free to fight breakouts, and green tea to calm the skin. It's an interesting gel texture that does melt into a more liquid formula as you apply. It's cooling and leaves the skin refreshed. I love using this when I'm breaking out! I think it definitely helps to support my skin to fight breakouts and works especially well if paired with the UFO Clarifying Oil. If you're thinking of purchasing I say go for it! I won't be, for reasons I've already stated, but I'm sad this won't be in my routine once I finish it. At $55 it's expensive for a toner, but comparable to other Sunday Riley products.

My Mental Wellness Improved Through My Self AcceptanceWhen I was around 13 or 14 years old, I remember routinely taking one of my older sister’s black eyeliner pencils before school every morning. I’d arrive early so that I could slip away to the girl’s bathroom to apply a single black line to my eyelids. My parents didn’t allow me to wear any makeup at the time. Although this smudgy line on my eyelids didn’t make me look all that much different, I never felt comfortable at school without it. My teenage mind convinced myself that I needed some sort of cosmetic symbol in order to appropriately express my femininity. Up until that point in my life, society had told girls that looked like me - tall, Black, and with kinky hair - that we somehow weren’t as beautiful as the other girls. For far too long, I believed it too.Feb. 17
