ZO SKIN HEALTH - Daily Power Defense -...literally won’t see any difference in your skin but will feel a difference. My skin became less sensitive to the other products I used and is supposedly help to prevent further wrinkling. Although I’m not a big fan of any-wrinkle agents because I feel it’s just genetics and human biology for us to get wrinkles at the rate we are meant to. I do feel this product does help a bit with sensitivity. ZO SKIN HEALTH - Acne Control - Acne Control formerly known as Aknetrol (I believe), is still a favorite if used consistently you will see your clogged pores, milia, zits, diminish, however it is such a strong product. Meaning it can cause redness in your skin if you don’t put sunscreen on after and burning/drying if your skin isn’t used to it. If it happens just limit to once a day and/or at night if you don’t have sunscreen because trust me, it will cause redness! So this was the other product that may have led to my dryness since it’s been a few months I haven’t used it. My skin has gotten back to normal now. Kate Somerville - Kx Active Concentrates Bio-Mimicking Peptides Serum - I really only use this product because it doesn’t break me out and I still have some left. I don’t see any “firming” whatsoever but y’all know how I feel about “anti-aging” agents. Also I HATE HATE that after I put it on my skin is sticky and if I rub my face I can feel the product crumble off. 2 stars because it doesn’t break me out. Do not recommend. JUICE BEAUTY - STEM CELLULAR Anti-Wrinkle Eye Treatment - Same thing. Only use it because it doesn’t break me out. As you can see in the photo, I still have the same wrinkles and dark circles as before. The Zein Obagi product made a difference and I hope to use it again in the future to show you. FARMACY - Honeymoon Glow Serum - I don’t use it as much as I like to as the exfoliater but I do like the way it tingles on my skin and how it looks in the morning. Brightens my skin a bit but I don’t see any “resurfacing” effects. MARIO BADESCU - Vitamin C Serum - see no difference but it lessens my sensitivity. I recommend using only 1-2 drops and build from there because it does feel greasy. A little goes a long way with this product. yesto - Activated Charcoal Bar Soap - I mainly use this for my dark-discolored armpits and it actually works! I should have shown a before and after. I’ll probably do a separate post and stop using it for a week or less to show the difference. You can see it with the first wash! I also use it on the rest of my body to brighten a bit. I recommend using this before and exfoliate in the shower because when you rub your skin you can feel how easy it is to rub that dead skin off!

Peptide Serum Dupes??
Kate Somerville - Kx Active Concentrates Bio-Mimicking Peptides Serum : Key ingredients: Blend of 5 peptides that work together to refresh and renew skin as it firms, smooths, and hydrates. Also includes chicory leaf extract (acts as a natural alternative to retinol to help with fine lines and wrinkles) and mango and banana pulp extracts (improve radiance and luminosity while also helping with wrinkles). Scent: Very strong scent, like medicine almost Price: $98 for 1 oz Experience: It is more heavy and takes some more time to sink in. After using this, my skin feels sticky, tacky, and heavy due to the product. I use this after toner but before moisturizer. On the Sephora website, they claim that almost everyone that tested their product (94%) saw highly significant improvement in their fine lines and wrinkles. After using this for a couple of weeks, I haven’t noticed much, if any, of a difference. The strong scent also deters me from using it. I also find it can cause my other skincare to pill afterwards, depending on what I use. The dropper has a hard time picking up enough product and it’s even harder to get it all out, so I don’t like the packaging of this, but maybe the full size is better. GOOD MOLECULES - Super Peptide Serum : Key ingredients: Blend of peptides and copper tripeptides to help hydrate, brighten, and smooth. Scent: Price: $12 for 1 oz Experience: It’s a very lightweight serum that layers easy and haven’t had an issue with pilling or not sinking in. I’ve noticed that my skin looks more plump and hydrated and an improvement in my acne scars. They aren’t as noticeable and my skin looks more even and bright. I use this after toner and before moisturizer. This is my second bottle I’m on and have seen a significant improvement in my texture and the plumpness of my skin. My skin has also become more soft! . Overall: While I don’t have any issues with wrinkles currently, I find it better to prevent a problem than try to fix it when it arises. My skin has become more plump, soft and hydrated using the Good Molecules serum and not that much of a greater difference using the Kate Somerville one. The GM ones does what it claims and a fraction of the cost and I’d rather purchase the GM one.

Peptides for all skin types for youthful skin
Peptides in skincare are so important and effective, they might not be one of those actives where you see your skin brightening, exfoliating but they definitely add up to your moisture game! ✨Know a little bit about Peptides: Peptides are amino acids that are the building blocks of certain proteins needed by the skin, like collagen and elastin. Using a serum or moisturizer that contains peptides can lead to firmer, younger-looking skin, and maybe even fewer breakouts. Peptides are generally considered safe, and while they’re a promising skin care ingredient, more research is needed on their efficacy. They're so effective in strengthening your skin barrier and giving that suppleness to your skin. For more youthful looking skin add it in your skincare routine along with Humectants like Hyaluronic acid and Panthenol. I've beein using this Bio-mimicking peptides by @katesomerville. Kate Somerville - Kx Active Concentrates Bio-Mimicking Peptides Serum I'll tell you shortly, I like it. This serum has high-performance concentrate with a signature blend of five peptides that work together to refresh and renew skin as it firms, smooths, and hydrates. ✨Highlighted Ingredients: - Complex of Five Peptides: Visibly improve skin elasticity, rejuvenation, and moisturization while reducing wrinkles and fine lines. - Chicory Leaf Extract: Acts as a natural alternative to retinol and helps to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, pores, and skin roughness. - Mango and Banana Pulp Extracts: Improve radiance and luminosity while helping to smooth the appearance of wrinkles. No matter what your age and skin type is Peptides can be useful. Especially now as we are transitioning into our fall routine, you can add peptides either in serum, toner or moisturizer form and they'll definitely keep your skin moisturized. I always like to remember the key to softer, smoother looking skin is hydration and moisturizing elements. ✨My experience and results I saw: -This serum made my skin very supple at the end of the day. -I use it in the morning along with my @theordinary Hyaluronic acid and @innisfree Panthenol toner The Ordinary - Hyaluronic Acid 2% + B5 innisfree - Truecare Panthenol 10 Moisture Skin - There is slight brightening and lightening experience. - It's fragrance free and has a little thick consistency but it absorbs well and quickly into the skin. - My tip is to use it when your Menstrual cycle begins, it will nourish and replenish the dull skin as well as strengthens it. Do you like peptides??
