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!

Now exiting my skin care routine
I saw this product get really hyped up, so I said “ok, $7 ain’t bad so let’s try it out” I don’t think my skin got better or worse to be honest. But for the last 2 weeks I broke out baaaaaaad. The product didn’t help. What did help was the CeraVe - Foaming Facial Cleanser For Normal To Oily Skin (it’s gooooood) Some things I didn’t like: I didn’t like how the serum feels so sticky. didn’t do any brightening to my skin. For brightening try MARIO BADESCU - Vitamin C Serum (it actually works) didn’t help with my breakouts RUNS OUT TOO FAST. I would only use 1 pump, and it’s run out quicker than any other product I’ve used before. Every skin is different. The product is less than $10 dollars so it’s affordable.

Mario Badescu vitamin C serum 🍊
This lovely serum is the third step to my PM routine. I use my MB toner, then use approximately 5-7 drops of this all over my face. The best thing about this serum is how light weight and airy it is. My skin never feels greasy and heavy when I apply this product. Using this serum has made a major difference in the tone of my skin, it went from un even and red to noticibly more even and less red. On top of all that, the fragrance is absolutely perfect. MARIO BADESCU - Vitamin C Serum

Absolutely zero editing done to this photo. as some of you know I have been on a desperate skin care journey. I have extremely large pores, dark circles under my eyes, and fine lines. . I have been experimenting with multiple products. And I am happy to share some of my favorites with you right now. . fresh - Mini Masking Kit Gift Set I use quite a few products from fresh however my 3 favorites are the soy face cleanser, black tea firming overnight mask, and Umbrian Clay Mask. . Kate Somerville - Kx Active Concentrates Bio-Mimicking Peptides Serum the Bio-Mimicking serum is truly magic in a bottle. I can tell when I have skipped using this product and I’ll never forget it again! . ELEMIS - Superfood Vital Veggie Mask I start my mornings with the Superfios Cica Calm juice. This is only an AM product that I use after I wash my fast but before any serums or creams. . MARIO BADESCU - Vitamin C Serum are use the vitamin C serum every other night. I love how it has helped with my skins elasticity! . DRUNK ELEPHANT - Protini Polypeptide Cream Protini cream is a game changer in your skin care routine. I only use this cream at night and my skin feels like absolute heaven. I use this on nights that I do not use an overnight mask. . dr. brandt - 24/7 Retinol Eye Cream 24/7 Retinol eye cream. As a mom I get very dark circles and fine lines under my eyes. This product has helped tremendously in both of those areas. I use it twice a day. . My morning moisturizer switches between a few. ESTĒE LAUDER - DayWear Anti-Oxidant 72H-Hydration Sorbet Creme Broad Spectrum SPF 15 DayWear on days that I know for a fact I will be spending most of my time outside. It has SPF 15 which is so important to me. LANCÔME - Hydra Zen Anti-Stress Glow Liquid Moisturizer Hydra Zen when my skin does not need tons of moisture I love this product. It smells like roses and does not feel heavy on my skin. @freshbeauty Lotus Youth Preserve we all know this brand is superior when it comes to the scent of their products. And this cream is no exception. But besides the wonderful scent I love the way it nourishes my skin and it doesn’t leave my oily areas too oily but it helps with my dry areas throughout the day. . I plan on trying a few new products here soon. After I give them all a fair trial I will be sure to leave my reviews and post an updated photo.

My skin improves when I don’t wash it??
Hi there! I’ve been into skincare pretty heavily in the last year. Ive struggled with hormonal and cystic acne since I was 4 (there’s pictures I swear!). While 2 rounds of accutane, age, and a hundred different regimens have made my skin a lot better today, I still get acne. I’ve experimented with serums, exfoliants, toners, cleansers, and the whole shebang and I thought I was doing it right. My routine: CeraVe - Foaming Facial Cleanser For Normal To Oily Skin PM The Ordinary - Glycolic Acid 7% Toning Solution every other PM BURT’S BEES - Natural Acne Solutions Clarifying Toner AM/PM The Ordinary - Niacinamide 10% + Zinc 1% PM LUÉ by Jean Seo - BALANCE AM The Ordinary - AHA 30% + BHA 2% Peeling Solution once a week/two weeks CeraVe - Resurfacing Retinol Serum PM pūrlisse - Watermelon + Charcoal Purifying Cleanser AM MARIO BADESCU - Vitamin C Serum AM When I was away from home, I didn’t wash it at all except with makeup wipes and my skin cleared up!Its also stayed clear for almost 2 weeks now and I haven’t had skin this clear in 3 years! I have sensitive normal skin with an oily T-zone. Should I keep not washing my face?
The Ordinary-AHA 30% + BHA 2% Peeling Solution
I started using Mario Badescu products about 6 months ago due to the hype. I was not a conscious skincare shopper and thought it was something new to try. With my new knowledge of ingredients, certain chemicals in these products can harm you! This company uses a lot of dyes and fragrance to make the product look prettier, but it leads to congestion, dryness, and acne in the long run. I try to stay away from those but they smell really good! MARIO BADESCU - Healing & Soothing Mask This mask is an exception from what I said there^ . This mask does a great job at drying acne and making them go away in a couple days. It has niacinamide (my favorite for managing oil and sebum production), Zinc, AHA, BHA, Sulfur, and other seed extracts and I just love it. MARIO BADESCU - Enzyme Cleansing Gel First of all, this cleanser smells like papayas and it tastes good if is drips in your mouth from washing. But, it didn’t do much for my skin. I really didn’t see an improvement of dullness, acne, oil production, and texture at all. I use it sometimes in the morning to attempt at brightening my tired ass, but I’ve never been too impressed. MARIO BADESCU - Special Cucumber Lotion I REALLY don’t like this product. It is not hydrating, in fact, it made my combo skin dryer, it has multiple dyes in it, fragrance, alcohol, you name it. I didn’t see an improvement in my occasional breakouts, in fact I think it made them more irritated. Don’t recommend MARIO BADESCU - Witch Hazel & Lavender Toner I mean, it’s aight. It’s your standard wit hazel, but with added alcohol and fragrance. It’s fine for every once in a while but not every day. MARIO BADESCU - Vitamin C Serum I liked this serum. It’s helped with my dark circles A TON and same with my hyperpigmentation. Definitely recommend. MARIO BADESCU - Seaweed Night Cream Didn’t dig it. It did hydrate my skin for sure, but made it a little too greasy for my liking. It also has alcohol and fragrance and I didn’t like that either for my sensitive skin.
