My skincare routine for glowing skin ✨
Skin type: combinations, acne-prone. Skin concern: dull skin. Following a beauty routine has its benefits, keeping the skin clean and hydrated makes the skin always look healthy. To minimize the appearance of pores, prevent wrinkles and decrease fine lines I use VIVIER - Retinol 1% Night Complex its main ingredients are 1% pure retinol, vitamin C, vitamin E and shea butter. It’s well known that retinol promotes cell renewal and increases collagen production, making the skin appear firmer and healthier. To keep dark spots out, I use VIVIER - Serum 10 , it contains 100% pure L-ascorbic acid, one of the best formulations on the market due to its stability. Helps reduce signs of environmental damage (fine lines, wrinkles, uneven skin texture and tone). It’s an excellent ingredient to add to your beauty routine. I try to exfoliate my face 1-2 times a week with ACURE - Brightening Facial Scrub its main ingredients are sea kelp and french green clay, after using it my my face feels clean and fresh OR HUDA BEAUTY - Yo Glow Facial Enzyme Scrub a gentle exfoliating scrub, its main ingredients are papaya and pineapple enzymes, BHAs and AHAs. It’s really a gentle exfoliant, it doesn't irritate and leaves my skin clean, smooth and full of glow. Added an ideal toner to brighten dull skin tone like GEORGETTE KLINGER - Vitamin C Toner , helps control excess oil, purifies deep inside pores, calms redness and fades dark spots. Its main ingredients are kakadu plum (source of vitamin C), aloe, witch hazel, watercress and elderflower. I have been using this toner for 20 days and I love the results, eliminate redness and reduce dark spots, my skin looks cleaner, brighter and healthier. In the morning, I applied GLOW RECIPE - Banana Soufflé Moisture Cream , a lightweight moisturizer that hydrates and calms the skin. It’s ideal for combination skin, leaves my skin feeling hydrated and glowy without leaving it greasy and smells delicious. Masks are an excellent treatment to help with your skincare concerns. I have millions of masks, I use one that I feel is best for me at the moment. ▪️If my skin needs hydration - SUMMER FRIDAYS - R + R Mask ▪️If I need something stronger - The Ordinary - AHA 30% + BHA 2% Peeling Solution ▪️If my skin feels dry or dull - SUMMER FRIDAYS - Jet Lag Mask ▪️If I need to control excess oil -NEOGENLAB - Neogen Dermalogy Canadian Clay Pore Cleanser Sunscreen is the most important part of any beauty routine, since it prevents damage caused by UVB / UVA rays. One of my favorites is Supergoop! - Glowscreen Sunscreen SPF 40 , it leaves a subtle glow that makes you not look tired, in addition to leaving the skin very soft and hydrated. Gentle reminder: don't forget to drink water, staying hydrated is very important for healthy looking skin, sleeping well is also important as it helps the normal renewal and exfoliation of the skin.
The Ordinary-AHA 30% + BHA 2% Peeling Solution
I feel like I should have saved this post for Friday lol but I just can’t wait to share my two cents on these goodies 🤩 ➯➯ I recently bought the @summerfridays Merry & Brighter set on @sephora. It is a set of the three masks from this brand. The full sized Jet Lag mask and 1 oz mini size of the Overtime and R + R masks. I have tried R + R Mask and I really enjoyed using it. But I was very curious to try the other two masks since there is a lot of hype with these. I have been using these masks a couple of times since I got them and I want to share my review with you guys. ➯➯ ➯Jet Lag Mask: This mask contains chestnut extract that acts as a natural exfoliant and vitamin C and niacinamide. I love anything with niacinamide so I knew I would like this mask. The directions for this mask was unique. You could use this this mask as a wipe off mask (so you apply a thick layer and leave it on for 10 minutes then wipe away with warm cloth or towel without rinsing) or you could apply a thin layer as a sleeping mask! What I did was I applied a thin layer and then after 10-15 minutes, applied a diy sheet mask on top. Then as I remove the sheet mask, I gently wiped away the jet leg mask with it. My skin was so plump and soft afterwards. I really REALLY enjoy using this mask. It doesn’t sting although it does have peppermint and the scent isn’t too strong as well. 5/5 recommend! ➯Overtime Mask: This smells like straight up pumpkin pie! OMG I was craving PSL and pumpkin pie every time I used this. 😂 I was worried that the scent would sting my eyes and it did at first but after a while it got better. This mask contains pumpkin (lol obviously) that is rich in vitamins and restorative minerals, apricot seed powder for exfoliation, oat kernel protein to moisturize and soothe the skin, and vitamin E that is known to fend off collagen-damaging free radicals. I did notice that my skin did feel softer after using this mask. However, my skin felt a bit tight after washing it off which doesn’t bother me too much since I could always apply moisturizer after. I do like this mask but I don’t think I would purchase the full size. I would rate it 3/5 just because the scent is very strong and though I like the scent, it does linger for a very long time which gave me a bit of a headache. ➯R+R Mask: I love this mask. LOL this is probably my favorite one out of the three. This mask contains Bulgarian rose, organ oil, rose flower powder which speeds up the cells’ renewal process), safflower, sesame, avocado, grape seed oil. It just has a lot of good essential oils that is supposed to restore the natural oils on your face while making the skin appear brighter and glowier. I was surprised to find myself loving this mask since I do have oily skin. I was worried that it would just make me feel more greasy but it does not at all! It makes my skin look just more healthy and plump. I really enjoy using this mask. Also, it is visually stunning! 5/5 recommend! Overall, this set was $64 which I think was worth considering you get three of these masks. The R+R full size retails around $52 so this set was def worth getting, ➯➯ Sorry for the long review 😅 Have you tried any of these masks? What are your thoughts on them?
SUMMER FRIDAYS-Jet Lag Mask
Infamous SUMMER FRIDAYS R+R mask breakdown!
SUMMER FRIDAYS - R + R Mask I caved in and bought this infamous mask so here are my thoughts. The mask is meant to exfoliate skin and leave it renewed and smooth. Ground rose powder whisks away dead skin cells, while antioxidant-rich oils steel skin into amazing moisture. The scent of the mask is amazing, smells like fresh roses. The texture is also one of the most gorgeous textures I’ve seen. I’ve been really enjoying this mask and have seen some minor improvements in my skin, but I do have some complaints: 1. I feel like this mask can be harsh for most skin types, including mine. The pieces in the mask are quite large and can really hurt and rupture skin vessels if used incorrectly. I am super careful and gentle when I use this mask, I use little force to rub it around my face. 2. I feel like Summer Fridays mask leave behind a residue, no matter how much you wash it off! I feel like I have a layer of product on the surface of my skin. With those two complaints being said, I still enjoy this mask and will continue to use it because it has helped my skin become more hydrated, brighter, and hasn’t irritated my skin at all.
SUMMER FRIDAYS-R + R Mask
A tale of 2 brightening masks
If you’re anything like me, you’ve been doing a lot of masks during your time in social distancing / isolation / quarantine. I’ve definitely done some remote work with a sheet mask on my face, won’t even lie 😂 Today I wanted to talk about two masks that both claim to brighten skin and help lighten dark spots. This is my second tube of the The Ordinary - Salicylic Acid 2% Masque . I like it because it contains salicylic acid and charcoal to target texture, dark spots, and blemishes. It dries down quickly, but it doesn’t feel super tight or uncomfortable on my face like clay masks, and it washes off very easily—I don’t have to fight it. This is the mask I reach for when my skin is feeling congested and I want to deep clean my pores. I’ve even just used it on my jawline (my problem area where I tend to get breakouts) and not on the rest of my face. The SUMMER FRIDAYS - R + R Mask is a little newer to me; I won it in a giveaway recently. Honestly, I’m glad I didn’t pay $52 for this, and I never would. I’ll be honest: this mask looks and smells very boujie and fancy, but washing it off is a nightmare for me: I have to use a washcloth because it’s so thick and oily that I simply can’t get it off with just water and my hands. It also doesn’t fit neatly into my routine: the idea is that you wash it off and then pat the remaining oils into your skin, but I don’t want to have oils on my skin before my serums or other products that I tend to apply BEFORE my oils. This mask contains vitamin C and claims to brighten skin. I don’t know that I’ve used it enough to be able to judge whether it follows through on that claim, but I’ll just say I dislike the feel so much that I don’t really care whether it brightens or not—I have a vitamin C serum that I like anyway so this wouldn’t be necessary for me. In the end, I would recommend The Ordinary - Salicylic Acid 2% Masque any day because it’s a great affordable product that targets multiple concerns effectively. The SUMMER FRIDAYS - R + R Mask looks and smells very nice, but I think it’s overpriced and it doesn’t fit into my routine well at all.
SUMMER FRIDAYS-R + R Mask
key ingredients: summer fridays r&r
I didn’t like this mask to begin with, but it really grew on me as I learned more about it! SUMMER FRIDAYS - R + R Mask Key ingredients: — bulgarian rose extract/flower powder: this ingredients is both soothing and exfoliating. I’m super surprised at how gentle this is, and I can use it at any time of day (with spf of course). Good for normal to oily skin as I don’t think it’s very hydrating. — argan oil: anti-inflammatory and very nourishing. It also helps with dark spots, and I can tell a difference in my skin tone when using this. I do not recommend this to oily skin, unless you’re using this at night! — avocado oil: this oil is so nourishing as well, and is an antioxidant which can help with sun damage and free radicals. I recommend this to all skin types! Product claims: — makes your skin so soft — helps with dark spots and dullness — nourishing and hydrating My thoughts: — pretty nice mask actually, but I have to apply it every so softly and carefully as it is VERY rough. The rose bits are scratchy and I have to basically pat this mask on to avoid hurting myself. — HOWEVER: I am always left with hydrated glow skin..... and a layer of oil. The oil this leaves behind is really thick and hard to wash off, so I usually mask and then get in the shower. The oil protects my face from the water, and I don’t have to do much work for it to all wash off. Win win. — this is $52 for 2.26oz, which is not worth it to me really. I paid $26 for this when they were on sale at Sephora.
SUMMER FRIDAYS-R + R Mask
Hit or Miss? Summer Friday’s R+R Mask
Summer Fridays - R+R Mask 🥀 The ever so beautiful R+R mask has a lot of mixed reviews. It seems that you either love it or hate it. I'm a huge fan of Jet Lag and I was finally able to snag R+R when it was 50% so I can give you all my thoughts on its performance. What is it? A 2 in 1 mask that gently exfoliates the skin for a brighter appearance while nourishing it with natural oils. The tube and packaging as a whole are so beautiful and well designed. However, it also contains Hydrogenated Vegetable Oil in the ingredients which is a bit controversial. HVO is trans-fat. Consider the amount you use and how (often) you use it. What do you get? You receive 2.25 fl oz of product for a price of $52. For comparison, Jet Lag retails for $48 ($25 for the mini) and Overtime for $44 and both also contain 2.25 fl oz. My thoughts: First of all, I adore the packaging. The tube makes it very easy to dispense just the right amount of product and, let's be real, the pretty rose color is so photogenic. It feels very well made as well. It has a light rose scent to it which could be irritating to sensitive skin types. I gently exfoliated with this for about 30 seconds before leaving the mask on for 10 minutes. The sugar is a bit abrasive but my skin didn't feel or look irritated before or after removing the mask and the oils -argan, safflower, sesame, avocado, and grape seed - weren't too overwhelming. They absorbed into my skin nicely and didn't leave it feeling greasy. I can see how some may not like this mask because applying too much can definitely leave you looking like you stuck your face in oil. My skin did appear glowy after the oils sunk in but it was nothing otherworldly. Overall, I would give this a 3.5/5. While I did enjoy this mask, I can't say that I would pick it up again, especially at a price of $52. If another sale comes our way, I'll definitely consider it, but for now, I'll savor every last drop of this tube to make it last for as long as possible. I have my eyes on Overtime...
