My Quarantine Skin Transformation
The first picture was taken March 20 and the second was just yesterday. I’m honestly shook to be honest. My skin was scaley and dry. I had no routine. I had lost all of my skincare stuff and was washing my face with water and would use rosehip oil to moisturize. Then I used the MARIO BADESCU - Peptide Renewal Serumand my skin WENT CRAZY. Bumps EVERYWHERE. Skin going insane. My skin has never looked like this. Then I finally got some money to buy some skincare stuff and this is what I’ve got: Oil Cleanser : KOSE COSMEPORT - SOFTYMO Speedy Cleansing Oil- I don’t know if this is working yet. It takes off makeup. I’m terrified of oil on my face but it’s not done bad yet. I did break out a little bit after I started using it but it could be purging. I use this every night and morning for 60 seconds on dry skin. Foaming Cleanser: CeraVe - Foaming Facial Cleanser For Normal To Oily Skin- I like this. It’s not drying I feel clean and my face feels good after wards. I use this right after oil cleansing. Toner: THAYERS - Witch Hazel AstringentI use this one in Aloe. OK SO I KNOWWW THAT PEOPLE DONT LIKE THIS. But it really changed my face. Before using it, my face was really bumpy even thought I was cleaning and moisturizing and exfoliating but this really soothed my skin and made everything go on better. I use this around my neck area too because it’s dark. Exfloliator: Glossier. - Solution Exfoliating Skin PerfectorThis helped my skin like get rid of bumps and dryness but it also makes my skin red which I don’t like. But for now Im using it. I would recommend this to start off your exfoliating journey. MOISTURIZER: Glossier. - Priming Moisturizer Rich Luxurious Face CreamI like this. It saved my dry skin it really hydrates and it’s not annoying. When you use it after the solution it does burn a bit. Just a warning but i really like this. SPF: Glossier. - Invisible Shield Daily SunscreenAnother glossier product. This isn’t sponsored I just did a big order. This is nice it’s a gel consistency which i genuinely love. And it’s been helping my dark spots according to cherie hehe ANYWAYS my skin is doing a LOT better but there are still problems with it. I have pimples. LOTS of blackheads. large pores. Hopefully with time I can correct those. Anyways till next time 😜

I’d Rather Get Coal Than....
Unpopular Opinion: I’d rather get coal for Christmas than the Clinique Moisture Surge I’m big time NOT a fan of this moisturizer, it made me break out so so much with these little tiny bumps all over my cheeks and forehead. I thought this was just my skin getting used to a new product (so many friends swear by it) but even after some time using it, it wasn’t getting any better It’s a refreshing gel-cream that is supposed to provide an instant moisture boost—and is enhanced to deliver almost twice as much hydration at the end of the day than it did before. I ended up just giving it to a friend who liked it. It’s a pricey moisturizer and I had a really horrible experience with it - definitely WOULD NOT recommend CLINIQUE - Moisture Surge Intense Skin Fortifying Hydrator Alternatives I’ve Found: Drunk Elephant Protini and Lala, Glossier Priming Moisturizer DRUNK ELEPHANT - Protini Polypeptide Cream DRUNK ELEPHANT - Lala Retro Whipped Cream Glossier. - Priming Moisturizer Rich Luxurious Face Cream

Current night routine 🌙
I wanted to share my current night routine for my skin, starting with when I shower, because it's really been working for me: 1. In the shower, I use a half pump of YOUTH TO THE PEOPLE - Superfood Antioxidant Cleanser to tighten pores, get rid of any gunk on my face, and to brighten. 2. After I'm done showering, my blood pressure tends to go up because of circulation improving, so I get in my pajamas and apply Glossier. - Super Pure Niacinamide + Zinc Serum to calm any redness. Then I brush my teeth. 3. Next, I spray a little bit of Avène - Thermal Spring Water Spray all over and roll my face using my SEPHORA COLLECTION - Rose Quartz Facial Roller 4. I roll my face using the wide end, starting with my left cheekbone and go to the jawline while going in lines/diagonals on my cheeks. Then I do my forehead by going horizontally - the top first and moving down, focusing on my brow bones (bc of sinuses, same with cheekbones and undereyes), next is the right cheek same as the left, then chin, sides of nose & undereyes w/ small end, and I finish by going in lines like a fern - but the branches/stems, not the little leaves. starting in one spot, going out, and coming back but going to different spots each time until I get that area covered - I make 5 lines on both cheeks and forehead using this method. It's difficult to describe tbh - center between my eyes / middle of brow, for cheeks its by my ear opening) 5. After my face is all cooled off, I put on a dime-sized amount of either Kiehl's - Ultra Facial Cream or Glossier. - Priming Moisturizer Rich Luxurious Face Cream and lather it all over onto my face and neck. 6. Don't forget your lips! I use either my birthday, coconut, or my recent fave - the fig Glossier. - Balm Dotcom 7. The last step is to spray some more of my Avène - Thermal Spring Water Spray but I also have two other sprays - YOUTH TO THE PEOPLE - Adaptogen Soothe + Hydrate Activated Mist with Reishi + Ashwagandhaand TATCHA - Luminous Dewy Skin Mist Thx for reading ! 😊

DAILY ROUTINE PRODUCTS
let’s talk about daily products that i use and highly recommend for you! Glossier. - Priming Moisturizer Rich Luxurious Face Cream i start out with this moisturizer because my skin gets very dry. i got this in ipsy and i love it!! its not too heavy and i find that it really soaks into my skin. another thing i do is take a damp beauty sponge and press it into the skin and give it about 5 minutes before i go in with my makeup! BOBBI BROWN - Full Size Vitamin Enriched Face Base next i use the smallest amount of this face base as a hydrating primer. you only need a little and it helps give that extra moisture!! NYX - Honey Dew Me Up Primer now time for the second primer. yes, i know, you’re probably thinking im crazy for using so many things before going in with foundation. hear me out, though. this primer sets with a tacky texture to really grip your foundation and keep it on all day long! you only need a little and it spreads easily. i usually let this sit for a minute or two to make sure i get that tacky texture! L'ORÉAL - Infallible Fresh Wear 24HR Foundation okay guys. if you dont have this: stop what youre doing and get it now. it has great coverage and has a barely there feel on the skin! wear one pump for a natural, everyday look or two pumps for a full coverage glam look! e.l.f. - Hydrating Camo Concealer this concealer is (and will probably always be) my holy grail. i tried the regular camo concealer when it launched, but it was too dry for me. love the hydrating one! Milk MAKEUP - Blur + Set Matte Loose Setting Powder i picked up this powder at marshalls and dont regret it at all. it leaves my skin with a soft, velvety feel and sets my makeup nicely (which says a lot given my deep smile lines) #Colourpop - Talk to the palm pressed powder bronzer[products]#[FiveStars] i recently picked up this bronzer from ulta, and when i opened it at home i panicked a little - it looked WAY too deep in the pan for my fair skin. but after i swatched it, it is BEAUTIFUL. i go in with a light hand and it gives just enough bronze to make me look like im still rocking a summer tan #Colourpop - fresh n peachy pressed powder blush[products]#[FiveStars] i picked up this blush in the same trip at ulta as the bronzer above. i love a peachy blush, and it lasted all day!! highly recommend if you like a peachy colored blush! benefit - Precisely, My Brow Pencil Waterproof Eyebrow Definer for the brows, i usually push for the drugstore products. i got the benefit pencil in my ipsy and now i know what all the hype is about. if you ever have the chance, try out this product! essence - Lash & Brow Gel Mascara this product isnt necessary, but i also use a brow gel, and for only $3, this gets the job done and keeps my brows in place until i clean my face!

Full Glossier Look
I proclaim myself a Glossier ambassador because it’s the only brand I use for makeup looks other than my new Kat Von D lip liner and my trusty L’Oreal Paris Infallible Eyeliner. I made this a Reel on my Instagram if you want to check it out, but these are the products I used✨ (I have acne and none of these products have exacerbated it, thank goodness. I don’t use their foundation anymore because my skin doesn’t agree with anything foundation lol). Glossier. - Glossier. Lip Gloss It’s not my favorite lipgloss because it’s too thick and sticky, but I like the shine it gives especially when I want a glow. Glossier. - Futuredew Oil Serum Hybrid I bought this serum a couple months ago and I’m not mad at it. It gives a subtle glow unlike my Becca Cosmetics compact, but it does the job. I apply it with my hands and in a few minutes I’m all set...to sit at home and work from my bed lol. Glossier. - Cloud Paint Duo I used the shade “Storm” and I like that it’s a deeper tone. It shows up on my skin tone and gives me a slight flushed look which is what a good blush should do, in my opinion. I’ve used it a little on my lips too just for a pop of color and right now this is my favorite product from Glossier Glossier. - Priming Moisturizer Rich Luxurious Face Cream I’ll always give this moisturizer love. It gets rid of my dry flaky skin and because it’s thick it keeps my skin hydrated for quite some time.

Morning Skincare Glow
So, I’m a big fan of the makeup-no-makeup look and for that I use Glossier, but for this picture I didn’t wear any makeup, just my morning routine! I’m still dealing with acne on my forehead, so I don’t like putting too many products or oily ones on my skin. This is my routine and if you like any of these products or want to try them, share your thoughts with me! M·S SKINCARE - MANTRA Skin Perfecting Cleanser This cleanser doesn’t dry my skin out too much and I appreciate the light rose petal smell. It’s a little thick and lathers beautifully which makes me feel like it’s actually working. YOUTH TO THE PEOPLE - 15% Vitamin C + Clean Caffeine Energy Serum I hate when serums leave my skin sticky, but this serum doesn’t! The ingredient list is great and hydrating and it’s feels light on my skin. I didn’t expect it to leave my skin as soft as it does, but I am not complaining at all. Glossier. - Priming Moisturizer Rich Luxurious Face Cream My go to moisturizer. It’s thick and that’s exactly what I need to keep my skin hydrated. I’m not a fan that it’s scented because that can leave some irritation, but I haven’t experienced much for the months I’ve been using it. BIOSSANCE - Squalane + Zinc Sheer Mineral Sunscreen SPF 30 PA +++ Hands down my favorite sunscreen. I prefer mineral sunscreens even though Supergoop!’s Unseen sunscreen (chemical) is high on my favorites list. I’m always talking about sunscreen and I know mineral sunscreens can leave a white cast, BUT Biossance did it’s thing with the sheer formula. I recommend it especially to those with deeper skin tones✨
