Current PM Routine: Normal Skin
Note: The micellar water I use to remove my waterproof mascara is not pictured (I use the waterproof Marcelle micellar water) I’ve done previous reviews for each product so I won’t go into too much detail. 1). Remove my mascara with the previously mentioned micellar water 2). Cleanse my face with the Allies of Skin - Molecular Silk Amino Hydrating Cleanser With this cleanser it’s best to apply to dry skin and massage around face and neck. I then follow by apply a small amount of water to lather the cleanser before ringing with lukewarm water. 3). The perfect, gentle-yet-effective toner: PESTLE & MORTAR - Exfoliate Glycolic Acid Toner 180ml It not only ensures a day’s dirt, grime, and makeup are completely removed from the skin, but I find it has made my complexion so much more balanced in terms of oiliness in my pore area (it’s non-existent at this point). 4). I always, aways use NIOD - Superoxide Dismutase Saccharide Mist Antioxidants in skincare are so important. It’s great at helping with water loss, oxidative stress, and inflammation. It’s so refreshing to apply to freshly cleansed skin. 5). I don’t let the mist dry onto my skin. I’ll leave it sitting for a few minutes and while my face is still slightly damp I apply PESTLE & MORTAR - Pure Hyaluronic Serum This hyaluronic serum is so hydrating and feels lovely on the skin. It’s perfect for locking in that moisture from the face mist. 6). GRAYDON - Fullmoon Serum A plant-based retinol alternative. My holy grail. My skin has never looked better since using this consistently. My skin is smooth and overall looks healthy. 7). The BIOSSANCE - Squalane + Marine Algae Eye Cream is my favourite eye cream and has been my go-to for months. It’s super hydrating and doesn’t make my concealer crease :) 8). The YOUTH TO THE PEOPLE - Superfood Air-Whip Moisture Cream is SO nice! It’s a light-weight gel cream. It has a lovely fresh scent that’s not overpowering. It’s quite hydrating as well. When I use these products my skin feels hydrated, smooth, and overall healthy :)

MY FAV EYE CREAM 🌿✨💛
MY FAV EYE CREAM 🌿✨💛
✨your follows and cheers mean so much 💛✨ If you’ve seen my posts, you know I’ve been loving this eye cream. I’ve seen visible improvements after only a few weeks and am on my second mini sample of this and will definitely repurchase the full size when I’m out. As I’ve mentioned before I have really bad skin damage under my eyes from when I was a kid, I got a terrible sunburn on my upper cheeks and under my eyes that left little bumps I could never seem to get rid of. This cream hasn’t made the bumps totally disappear but it has started to smooth them, hold hydration under my eyes and sooth the skin. Since I fell so hard for this product, I wanted to do a deep dive into the product and find out what ingredients I should be thanking personally for the amazing results. Here’s some of the key ingredients that make up the BIOSSANCE - Squalane + Marine Algae Eye Cream ✨ Squalane - an emollient that is occurs naturally in our skin, with exceptional moisturizing qualities. Squalane leaves skin feeling silky smooth, without any greasy residue ✨ Panthenol (also known as Pro-vitamin B5) - the main job of panthenol is to moisturize skin, it helpful for attracting water and holding onto it. Panthenol also protects the skin and has anti-inflammatory qualities. Studies show that Panthenol can reduce irritation caused by fragrance, preservatives or chemical sunscreen ingredients when present in the formula. ✨ Palmitoyl Tripeptide-5 - this tripeptide is claimed to protect and boost collagen while improving skins texture, and is known to visibly improve the firmness and elasticity of skin while also reducing the look of pores ✨ Astaxanthin - This is the algae component in the eye cream, it is a potent antioxidant that can help prevent UV induced skin damage. ✨ Sodium Hyaluronate - a cousin ingredient to the infamous hyaluronic acid. As far as skincare goes SH (sodium hyaluronate) and HA (hyaluronic acid) offer essentially the same things, so you can bet this is going hold of to crazy amounts of water and keep skin plump and elastic. Needless to say, the more I learn the more I love this eye cream. It is perfect for my needs and I’m so happy I found it 💛

WORTH THE $ ???
WORTH THE $ ???
✨your follows and cheers mean so much 💛✨ So lately I’ve been super captivated by the Biossance products. They are pretty pricey, so when I saw Sephora has some minis I just had to get them! I’ll start with the BIOSSANCE - Squalane + Marine Algae Eye Cream , which I LOVED. When I was younger I got a really terrible sunburn on my face, and I have had permanent skin damage under my eyes ever since. I’ve tried many eye creams to counteract the damage but this is the first one that I’ve been so happy with everything about this eye cream. I had great results in just a few days and will definitely be repurchasing this product. 💪🏼 |PERFORMANCE| amazing, I was so happy with the hydration, brightening and firming of under and around my eyes. I have like little white dots under my eyes from the sun but have found this is helping to reduce the appearance and smooth them out! 🤲🏻 |TEXTURE| this is a thick cream, spreads nicely - it stays in place and soaks in quickly. 👃🏻|SCENT| this eye cream is fragrance free 👍🏼 I don’t think you’d want anything super smelly under your eyes anyways. 💦 |INGREDIENTS| marine algae - visibly reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles Paracress extract - smooths and firms Squalane - Locks in moisture This is also a ‘clean’ at Sephora product 🌿 💸 |VALUE| this eye cream goes for $71 for a 15ml pot. I personally think it’s totally worth it and I will repurchase when my mini is out! I got the 3ml as a sample and it has lasted me almost three weeks now and I’ve been applying it twice a day. (There are also still doing the mini at Sephora when you spend $35 using promo code BIOSSANCE) ————————————————————————————— I have combination skin more on the oily side. I found the BIOSSANCE - Squalane + Vitamin C Rose Oil to leave my skin super greasy, I think the rose scent caused my skin to turn red and I found I was getting white heads after using this product. 💪🏼 |PERFORMANCE| meh, was very oily. Left my skin red and greasy and I definitely didn’t feel like my skin was brightened or firmed like the claims 🤲🏻 |TEXTURE| thin oil, easy to spread 👃🏻|SCENT| this oil is fragrance free, but has light rose notes from the rose flower extract 💦 |INGREDIENTS| the ingredient in this product are vegan, cruelty free, paraben free and synthetic fragrance free. The main ingredients highlighted in the product are squalane - for long lasting moisture Damascus rose extract - to awaken the senses and boost healthy looking radiance Chios crystal oil - revitalizes skin and improves look of firmness 💸 |VALUE| this bottle goes for $95 CAD for 30ml. In my opinion this is totally not worth it ... looking at the ingredients you could probably make this oil yourself lol pretty easily..

I always maintain a similar nighttime routine but find I like changing through products, such as a different AHA toner, a different face cream, a different eye cream, or a different face wash. However, the foundation of it remains the same: cleanse, tone, hydrate. I usually go for a more hydrating routine for both the AM and PM. Tonight I used products that I love and that I know suit my skin type: (mostly) normal. 1). I started with the MARCELLE - Micellar Water (light blue bottle for waterproof makeup) to remove my waterproof mascara. I have yet to find a better micellar water. It’s so effective yet so gentle. If you can suggest one that does a great job with waterproof mascara please let me know :) 2). I cleansed my face with the Neutrogena - Hydro Boost Hydrating Cleansing Gel It’s soap free me doesn’t dry out my skin and makes me feel so clean and refreshed. 3). My new favourite toner: it’s so gentle yet so effective at removing excess dirt, makeup, balancing my skin’s pH, etc. PESTLE & MORTAR - Exfoliate Glycolic Acid Toner 180ml 4). I always add in hydration when I can and this product is perfect for that (and pre-serums!) NIOD - Superoxide Dismutase Saccharide Mist Think toner/meets essence/meets serums/meets bye bye oxidative stress and hello hydration! Lol. I feel it boosts the effectiveness of my skincare products. 5). I keep my face damp from the SDSM mist and then apply my PESTLE & MORTAR - Pure Hyaluronic Serum This is sooooo beautiful and hydrating. I love it beyond words! Haha. 6). I then applyBIOSSANCE - Squalane + Marine Algae Eye Cream I’m obsessed with this eye cream. It’s so hydrating but light. It doesn’t make my under-eyes feel greasy. It’s my go-to for the day and to wear under makeup. 7). Last but not least, I love a super hydrating face cream for the night. This one is hydrating but not heavy or greasy, which is perfect for me YOUTH TO THE PEOPLE - Adaptogen Deep Moisture Cream with Ashwagandha + Reishi ❤️🤍

Review My Routine
Review My Routine
Hi!! Here is the morning routine I used today 😌 My skin type is normal thanks to consistency with products. Step 1: I cleansed my face and neck with the Neutrogena - Hydro Boost Hydrating Cleansing Gel I love it because it’s soap-free, oil-free, paraben-free, non-comedogenic, & hypoallergenic. Because it contains hyaluronic acid — which I’m obsessed with — it leaves my skin feeling so fresh, clean, and hydrated. This cleanser is a light-weight gel. The tiniest amount lathers beautifully to remove dirt, oil, makeup, etc. This cleanser really does make my skin feel hydrated. No tightness or dryness after using this. Step 2: I spritzed my face and neck with NIOD - Superoxide Dismutase Saccharide Mist This is a mouthful, I know. It’s also referred to as SDSM. It’s essentially a face mist that prevents against damaging environmental effects & improves your skin’s hydration. It also aids with fine lines, discolouration, & dullness. Think toner but MORE amazing & beneficial. I love using this in the AM because it instantly leaves my skin feeling so refreshed and hydrated. This is best applied after cleansing and before other treatments. Step 3: While my skin was still damp from the NIOD mist, I applied the The Ordinary - Marine Hyaluronics I love HA so much and when I read about this in one of @Mallory‘s posts I had to try it. Only having used it twice (this morning and tonight) I’m already obsessed! It’s more watery than The Ordinary’s HA + B5 but works in the same way by attracting and holding water and therefore hydrating your skin. The marine hyaluronics are lighter than HA and has a lower viscosity. It doesn’t leave your skin feeling tacky. It makes your skin feel hydrated & lovely. Step 5: I adore vitamin C and having glowy skin, and the REN CLEAN SKINCARE - Glow Daily Vitamin C Gel Cream is the perfect product for that. While I do love other vitamin C products, I love how quick and easy this is to apply. This is a gel cream and I generally apply 1 pump to my finger tips and apply it onto my face and neck. This leaves your skin looking radiant & bright. Not only is it super hydrating, it also neutralizes pollutants. I love how is absorbs into my skin, making it feel soft & hydrated. Step 6: Next I apply the BIOSSANCE - Squalane + Marine Algae Eye Cream I am obsessed with this eye cream. I find it blends nicely, makes my under-eyes feel hydrated, and smoothes out my skin which makes the application of my concealer look so nice. Step 7: I use my favourite moisturizer,Neutrogena - Hydro Boost Gel-Cream on my face and neck. It makes my skin feel so hydrated and soft :) Step 8: Lastly, sunscreen: LA ROCHE-POSAY - Anthelios 50 Mineral Ultra Light Sunscreen Fluid SPF 50 This is amazing! No white cast and leaves a lovely glow :) ❤️🤍 -Stacy

After I’ve worked a 12 hour shift at the hospital I sometimes feel like I want to treat my skin. Whether it’s because of lack of sleep, stress, or wearing a mask for so long, my skin can feel less than optimal; like I want to give it a deeper clean. Last night I decided to treat myself with a face mask. Step 1: Not shown in the photo but I removed my makeup with my Marcelle micellar water Step 2: I cleansed my face with FARMACY - Clean Bee Ultra Gentle Facial Cleanser I love the smell of this and how gentle it is on my skin. When I use this I can really tell it gets all the grime off my skin. Step 3: I chose to use the THE inkey LIST - Beta Hydroxy Acid (BHA) Blemish + Blackhead Serum around my nose and pores just to add a little extra help to the next step (clay mask) to get rid of those impurities. I waited maybe 10 minutes after applying this go ahead with the clay mask :) Step 4: I applied the L'ORÉAL - Pure Clay Purity Mask This specific face mask is for sensitive skin but I love the blue colour and that it contains seaweed extract, which helps soothe and soften your skin. At the moment my skin type is normal but that doesn’t mean I can’t use a product designed for sensitive skin 😜. I applied a thin layer, avoiding my under eye area, and left on for 10 minutes before rinsing it off with lukewarm water. Step 5: I cleansed my face again with the FARMACY - Clean Bee Ultra Gentle Facial Cleanser I figure if the clay mask is meant to pull out impurities, etc. then it’s important to wash those off your skin :) Step 6: My go-to, my old faithful: The Ordinary - Hyaluronic Acid 2% + B5 I apply this every skincare routine I have. It’s important to rehydrate your skin after a clay face mask as some can pull out moisture. I love TO’s hyaluronic acid. I dampened my skin and applied this serum to lock that moisture in. Step 7: While I didn’t apply the face mask under my eyes, I still wanted to moisturize that area. I know eye creams can be controversial in the sense that you don’t really need them, but I absolutely love this one by Biossance BIOSSANCE - Squalane + Marine Algae Eye Cream I can honestly tell it smoothes out my tired under-eyes and I find it really moisturizing thanks to the squalane. Step 8: In this last step I applied both products around the same time and gentle massaged them into my skin. The Ordinary - 100% Organic Cold Pressed Rose Hip Seed Oil I’m so in love with this product. It’s such a hydrating oil and it leaves my skin feeling unbelievably soft. I also wanted to use the YOUTH TO THE PEOPLE - Superberry Hydrate + Glow Dream Mask because, while it’s technically a sleep mask, I find is sooo hydrating — and with clay masks as I said above, they can be drying and I like to rehydrate my skin. These two get the job done 💚
