Week 4 of Tretinoin and Spirinolactone Journey
Week 4 of Tretinoin and Spirinolactone Journey
This is the end of my fourth week going on Spirinolactone (pills for hormonal acne that I take 1x a day) and Tretinoin. This first half is a repeat of last week’s post, though I have made some slight updates to my routine. The new info will be right below my posted routine. I purchased both treatments from Apostrophe, so they have been prescribed by a dermatologist. My Apostrophe cream formula is 0.025% Tretinoin and 4% Niacinimide. I’ve simplified my routine to only include an oil cleanser, a gentle cleanser, moisturizer, the tret cream, a sunscreen, and an occlusive . I have normal skin. I’m looking to add more in as I adjust to treatment. My routine is as follows: AM CeraVe - Hydrating Face Cleanser For Normal To Dry Skin dear, klairs - Supple Preparation Unscented Facial Toner COSRX - Advanced Snail 96 Mucin Power Essence CeraVe - Daily Moisturizing Lotion For Normal To Dry Skin Aveeno - Ultra-Calming Daily Moisturizer SPF 30 PM DHC - Deep Cleansing Oil CeraVe - Hydrating Face Cleanser For Normal To Dry Skin dear, klairs - Supple Preparation Unscented Facial Toner COSRX - Advanced Snail 96 Mucin Power Essence (on non-tret nights) CeraVe - Daily Moisturizing Lotion For Normal To Dry Skin Apostrophe formula (using this after moisturizer so I can have a buffer between the tret and my skin) CeraVe - Healing Ointment So I added snail mucin and a hydrating toner as part of my regular routine. I’m now switching to everyday use of tret, so I want to keep my moisture barrier intact as my usage increases. I’m using snail mucin in the mornings, and am considering using it at night along with tret. Is the snail mucin 2x a day even better it is it just overkill? I’m also using the Cerave healing ointment as an occlusive to seal in hydration and moisture as the last step of my routine. I’m definitely in the purging period. I’m seeing a lot of pustules and closed comedones show up. Super excited, because this is showing me that Tret is actually working and speeding up my cell turnover. I’m am concerned about the Post-Inflammatory Hyperpigmentation (PIH) and the Post-Inflammatory Erythema (PIE) that will be left over after my acne subsides. Are there any products that for sure get rid of PIH/PIE. If you know of any, comment down below!

cosrx Advanced Snail 96 Mucin Power Essence.  this product is 96% snail mucin 🐌. Snail mucin, it's the slimey little trail the snail leaves behind, and comes from your ordinary garden snail. No snails are harmed when it comes to collecting snail mucin, quite the opposite actually. In order for a snail to be able to produce optimum mucin, it must be well rested and feel comfortable and relaxed in its environment. How cosrx collect their mucin is, they'll be placed on a mesh net in a dark room (they're nocturnal) and are left alone to freely roam the mesh for 30 minutes, then are placed back in their home, the mesh is collected and hey presto! You've got yourself a mesh covered in mucin. The two weeks that I've been using this product, here are my visible results: -Plump and hydrated skin -Existing cystic pimples have dramatically reduced in size - Acne scars seem much less visible -No new breakouts 🎉 The product is thick and slimey in its consistency, clear in appearance and has no noticeable smell. It applies and absorbs effectively and layers well. I use this straight after toning and have no problem layering other serums and moisturisers on top, they all absorb beautifully and no stickiness is left behind. Snail mucin contains ingredients like glycoproteins, hyaluronic acid, and glycolic acid. Benefits of using mucin: -Seals in moisture and helps skin heal -Rich in hyaluronic acid and antioxidants -Plumps the skin and smoothes out fine lines and wrinkles -Stimulates collagen production -Fades acne scars and dark spots -Improves skin's texture 🐌 For me, this has been my hero product and has seriously helped improve my problematic skin.

Discovering Essences
Discovering Essences
Essences aren’t new in the skincare world, but it wasn’t until recently more brands added them to their repertoire. An essence is a concentrated formula that targets wrinkles, fine lines, and dull skin. Most essences contain an active ingredient that promotes cell turnover. Eventually, the daily use of essences in your routine will lead to smoother and brighter skin. However, don’t be fooled by the promises that essences are somehow anti-aging powerhouses. I think of them as your skin’s multivitamin. Who Should Use this Essence Here’s the good thing about this product, because it’s almost entirely snail mucin filtrate, everyone should use it. But, you know I don’t believe in that “best for all skin types” stuff brands like to promote. To me, this product is a classic staple on everyone’s skincare routine, but those who need it have: Sensitive skin Dry skin Acne-prone skin Why? Because snail mucin can help reduce redness, nourishes at a cellular level, and provides a glow that will help fade out acne scars. But, most importantly, the combination of naturally-found hyaluronic and glycolic acid make it a must-have if you have sensitive or dry skin. How to Use this Essence It’s relatively simple to use an essence. After you’re done with the toner, use one or two pumps of product, it spreads easily. Apply all over your face and neck. Start from the center and work your way our with pulling motions, almost like a massage. Wait for it to dry before you move to the next step.

-What is it? A thick “essence” that is made of 96% snail mucin. Sounds gross right? Well I thought the same thing until I finally decided to try it. This snail mucin secretion is ideal and targeted for hydration and repair. Repair you say? This means hyperpigmentation, acne scars, healing open acne scars, etc. And THIS STUFF WORKS. It has amazing anti-inflammatory properties and also provides lasting hydration. As you can see it has a very thick consistency, it’s very gummy and sticky but doesn’t feel sticky on the skin if that makes sense. It doesn’t make me feel sticky because it absorbs so well. I say “essence” because normally essences have a watery or lightweight texture in my experience. This is targeted for all skin types. -My thoughts 💭 Definitely one of my favorite k-beauty products of all time. I’ve been using this for almost 2 months and I am about halfway through the bottle. I picked this up because I suffer from acne and specifically the marks that it leaves behind. I think it’s also nice to have some extra hydration in my routine. I have definitely noticed a difference in my skin with leftover acne marks since starting this product. If I pick (sometimes I can’t help it), this stuff will help heal the open scab and prevent severe scarring from happening. I love this product! -Final takeaways 🗣 100% recommend this product because I think everyone can benefit from it. Even if you don’t have acne prone skin, it still provides insane hydration to your skin. It also also so cost effective, which makes it even more amazing to me! $21 for 3.38 oz on SokoGlam, and I got mine on amazon for a similar price! You need this essence.

Looking For A Calming Cleanser?
Looking For A Calming Cleanser?
COSRX Pure Fit Cica Cleanser ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️/5 I semi-recently discovered COSRX and am pretty impressed with their products so far. I started by purchasing their COSRX - Advanced Snail 96 Mucin Power Essence Snail 96 Essence, then their COSRX - BHA Blackhead Power Liquid Blackhead Power Liquid and then, while looking for a calming cleanser, purchased their Cica cleanser. COSRX is cruelty-free and is labled as “clean beauty” (that doesn’t actually mean anything in the skincare world, but nonetheless). The COSRX - Pure Fit Cica Cleanser is billed as low-pH, calming, soothing, strengthening and protecting. * “A mild cleanser with a rich, gentle foam” * “This foam cleanser effectively balances the skin, helping it stay smooth and supple” * “Formulated with CICA-7 Complex and Pinus Pinaster Bark extract” *CICA-7 is said to smooth and protect irritated, sensitive skin and strengthen the skin barrier. *Pinus Pinaster Bark extract contains Vitamin E and is said to relieve and help in skin recovery. (*Source: Amazon’s product listing) It also has Centella in it. It’s scientific name is Centella asiatica*, it’s higher classification being pennywort. “Centella asiatica known Gotu Kola is a medicinal plant that has been used in folk medicine for hundreds of years as well as in scientifically oriented medicine.” (*Source: https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC3834700/#idm139695891535344title) So far, my skin is a fan! I have had many instances (particularly with my neck as my skin is SO SENSITIVE AND TEMPERAMENTAL THERE) and this has been a really gentle cleanser that caused zero irritation and I was even able to use some on my healing neck. It had been about a week or so since it had had an adverse reaction to a product and I was able to gently use this without any real sass from my neck. I was initially a little worried because it has a sharp natural scent that I thought might irritated my skin or drive me crazy but it did neither. The smell washes off with the cleanser. It seems to be doing a really nice job in combination with the rest of my skincare routine and it is becoming my most-frequently-reached-for facial cleansers. I would definitely recommend this face wash. An effective, gentle cleanser from a cruelty-free company is a total win in my book.
