Seriously! 💢💢💢Clinique Can Do Better Than This!
Hello🌞You must know the importance of cleaning your face. I have combo-oil skin, not sensitive. I have acne-prone skin, and I have some dark spots. So I started building up my tolerance for acid since long-time ago. Today, I want to talk about my fav and meh products! pixi - Glow Tonic Concentration 🍋🍋🍋 How to Use It: Apply on cotton pads, gently rub the face It is alcohol-free, which means it is a glycolic acid product that is very good for sensitive skin. It also formulated with witch-hazel and Aesculus to mitigate the irritation. My face does not feel dry after using it. It is good at lock in hydration. So dry skin will really like it. Also, if you don't have any experience using acid, this is a good beginning. I have used half of the bottle. It does not have a strong effect on getting rid of whiteheads, but it can be a good exfoliating product. It is really worth the price. I always repurchase when it is on sale. SK-II - Facial Treatment Essence (Pitera Essence) Concentration🍋🍋🍋🍋 How to Use It: Apply on cotton pads, gently rub the face It includes Lactic acid, Malic acid, Salicylic acid. It is a combination of those acid, and it is for secondary cleanse. Comparing with Pixi, this one has more exfoliating power. It is better for combo oil and oily skin. If your skin is thinner, I recommend you only use it twice or three times a week. After using it, my face feels a bit dry. So it is good to use with hydrating products. It is quite expensive though. If you don't have enough budget for cleansing product, I won't recommend this one to you. Cle De Peau Essential Correcting Refiner How to Use It: Apply on cotton pads, gently rub the face It only has Succinic acid, which makes it different from the previous products. I feel like it has a high alcohol concentration. I can even smell the alcohol after I apply it on my face. But it actually feel good on my face. I feel refreshed after using it. It is a good choice for morning routine. But make sure you are not allergic to alcohol. It is very expensive. CLINIQUE - Clarifying Lotion 2 For Dry Combination Skin How to Use It: Apply on cotton pads, gently rub the face It has an obvious smell of alcohol. My face felt burned after using it. I really don't like it. I am using it to wipe my table now. It actually works quite well. BTW I don't like this design. It is so inconvenient to pour it out. The mouth is way too big, to the point I think you can even drink it... Have you used any of these product? How do you like it? 💞
CLINIQUE-Clarifying Lotion 2 For Dry Combination Skin
Toner I’m most thankful for
I'm thankful for this being the first toner I tried out and made me love toning. Thoughts: This wonderful toner I always go back to it in the night time. I feel like it helps me to get the pure cleanse that I need without my skin being stripped. Everytime I use this my skin always looks much more radiant and back to life. I been using this for almost a year and would rotate between using it in the daytime and nightime. During the summer time I used it in my AM routine and I loved how my face would go from oily to soft and supple with the right amount of hydration. During those hot months it always helped maintain my skin clean but with enough nourishment. Now in the winter time, during cold nights, my skin gets the hydration it needs and mainly the healthy glow it craves. Personally this toner is a favorite of mine because it didn’t irritate my skin, break me out and wasn’t harsh on me. I saw instant results when I first applied it and how my skin could look every day (Glowy and alive) I’m glad I decided to try it it out after seeing all the hype about it on instagram. Claims: it’s gentle for all skin types to exfoliate, brighten and smooth skin Targets: Dullness and impurities Texture: It is a orange liquid consistency almost like water with soap. Price: $16 and definitely worth buying when you need something gentle yet effective to help achieve glow and hydrated skin in seconds. Recommendation: Yes, I think anyone would enjoy this. I highly recommend this to anybody with any type of skin if you are not allergic to any of the ingredients, of course. Some ingredients: Aloe to help soothe and hydrate Ginseng to improve circulation and energize 5% of Glycolic acid to exfoliate Cruelty free 🐇 pixi - Glow Tonic
Good skincare for life.
I’ve been obsessed with skincare and makeup since I was a little girl. I made my own masks, I religiously cleansed my face day and night once I started wearing makeup and I used treatment products and moisturizers long before I needed them - that is key! Start a skincare routine as early as you can. If you think your skin is perfect and doesn’t need anything, think about the decades coming! Start now! Here’s the thing- skincare (and makeup) don’t have to be complicated or expensive. I regularly blend drugstore products with high end products. Honestly, many of the drugstore products turn out to be my favorites. Full disclosure, I use a crap ton of skincare products and I change up my routine as needed. I rarely put on a full face of makeup but I do wear some makeup 5-6 days of the week because it makes me feel pulled together and I like how it looks. No apologies necessary for daily make up wearers- do what makes you feel good! No shame in self care, ever! Today felt like a full-face-of-makeup day for some reason, so I had some fun and put it all on. Here are some of my fave products and what I used today: 1. Day old hair with Toni & Guy matte hair powder. 2. Cleanse face with CLARISMA - Malibu Blush Exfoliating Scrub - the enzymes in this cleanser keep my face smooth and glowing. Follow with some quick swipes of pixi - Glow Tonic allow to dry then mix one dropThe Ordinary - Niacinamide 10% + Zinc 1% The Ordinary - Matrixyl* 10% + HA , half pumpCLARISMA - Cali Dreaming Cream Daily Moisturizer massage in and appy a dab of Roots Sensitive Eye Cream to eyes. When my face is dry I apply a layer of DRUNK ELEPHANT - Umbra Tinte Physical Daily Defense Broad Spectrum Sunscreen SPF 30 . 3. Prime my oily skin with smashbox - Photo Finish Foundation Primer Super Light , one little drop each LANCÔME - Teint Idole Ultra Long Wear Foundation and SHISEIDO - Perfect Refining Foundation SPF 15 MAYBELLINE - Instant Age Rewind Eraser Dark Circle Treatment Concealer for under eyes, e.l.f. - Hydrating Camo Concealer (just discovered this!), UNDONE BEAUTY - LIP TO CHEEK 3-IN-1 CREAM PALETTE , tiny bit of bareMinerals - Mineral Veil Setting Powder Broad Spectrum SPF 25 on t-zone, SHISEIDO - Shiseido Eyelash Curler COVERGIRL - Total Tease Waterproof Mascara NYX - Eyebrow Cake Powder , Rimmel grey eyeliner, a few pats bh - Illuminating in Ireland 6 Color Highlight Palette Sephora chunky crayon brow enhancer, florence by mills - Limited Edition Get Glossed Lip Gloss Duo . Last, I like to spray a couple spritzes of HERBIVORE - Rose Hibiscus Hydrating Mist to get a satin look. This seems like a lot, but it takes maybe 6-8 minutes. I apply my foundation, concealer, cream blush and eye shadow by hand. Always have, always will. My skin isn’t perfect, but it’s pretty good and I owe it to taking care of my skin for more than 30 years. Unfortunately, I grew up in an era we didn’t talk about sunscreen and sun damage. I baked in the sun and eeeeek, tanning beds. Surprisingly, my skin isn’t horrible but I definitely see the damage. I’m currently working on undoing some of that damage. Morale of the story, take care of your skin and enjoy the process. I do!

Why You Should Be Exfoliating Once a Week 🖤
Exfoliation is the process where we remove dead skin from the surface of our skin. It is so important to remove these dead skin cells so they don’t build up. If they do it’s very easy for sebum to get trapped underneath without being able to escape which in turn causes break outs. It also creates a barrier where your products don’t properly penetrate the skin making them less effective than they could be. I have oily yet dehydrated acne prone skin so my favorite way to exfoliate is to use Glycolic Acid. It is an AHA which helps loosen up the bonds that keep dead skin cells on the face. It also has the ability to really get down in the follicle and loosen up any built up sebum that could lead to break outs making it great for oily or acne prone skin. So far my favorite product with this ingredient is the StriVectin - Glycolic Skin Reset Mask . It’s really pricy at $59 but I’ve seen really good results using this weekly. ALWAYS read the instructions on the back when working with acids. I only leave this mask on for 5 minutes once a week. The first time I used this it felt a little uncomfortable but it’s something your skin has to get used to if you’re new to acids (I would also always patch test when using acids). I’ve been using this weekly for months (a little goes a long way) and I barely have break outs anymore. A lot of texture has left my face and it’s super smooth. Another cheaper option is the pixi - Glow Tonic and the pixi - Glow Glycolic Boost Brightening Face Mask Sheet . This is a leave on treatment I would do after my cleanser. They advertise it for daily use but I wouldn’t purely for the fact this dried my face out if I used it daily. I did see decent results with it but it wasn’t worth the continued use. It also has a lot of fragrance as well that I’m not a fan of for leave on products. If you have sensitive skin a more gentle option is the GLOW RECIPE - Watermelon + AHA Glow Sleeping Mask . I absolutely love this for night time. If you have oily skin like me you can get away with using this as your moisturizer. If you don’t and still want to use it I would recommend this be the last step before your moisturizer so it can still penetrate the skin and your moisturizer locks the product in. It’s a very unique textured gel moisturizer. For me personally it doesn’t feel sticky or tacky once it’s absorbed but you do have to work the product in til it is absorbed. It’s super gentle and can be used nightly. It does have fragrance (which smells like amazing jolly ranchers) but with its Clean At Sephora seal it has less than 1% fragrance which I’m okay with unlike the Pixi Toner. There are definitely other exfoliating acids out there (like lactic or malic) but for oily, acne prone skin I prefer glycolic. If you have any questions about acids please let me know 🖤 and always patch test before you use them as well as read the instructions!

product claims VS my thoughts - PIXI Glow Tonic💚
I got this baby - PIXI Glow Tonic - because my friend highly recommended it when I asked her what toner she was using. I haven't used this brand's products before, so I just searched for it on Sephora and found it quite popular. What it claims is soooooo attractive that I bought it without a second thought! 🧡It claims that it • contain Aloe Vera which can help soothe and hydrate • can gently accelerate cell renewal to reveal a brighter, glowing complexion • can help balance, heal and soothe for radiant, healthier looking skin Did it really help me with these? Yes! It does almost everything it promises! 🧡My experience: ❎Hydration: Actually, I don't think it hydrating enough. It is OK for me on summer days as I have oily skin, but I won't use it in winter. And of course this is NOT for dry/combo skin. ✅Brightening: I did not see any difference at first, but after one month I started to see a glowing effect on my skin. It does not whiten my skin tone but my dull skin looks brighter! ✅Soothing: Some people don't like the scent, but I think it smells great just like rosewater and most importantly, it soothes my skin nicely! Overall, I LOVE this PIXI glow tonic! I tried the 100ml one and now want to get the full-size once I use it up! If you are looking for a toner that can help with brightening and soothing, then you must give it a try!
Glow Tonic by Pixi Beauty Review Before I wasn’t a fan of exfoliating tonics and preferred to use Acids as creams and treatments due to bad reaction to Clinique's in my youth. But this Glow Tonic was a total game changer for me. You probably seen it everywhere but here I go with my review. I have sensitive combo skin, and while trying to find something that would improve texture and give me that glow I found this — most raved about tonic. And oh god its amazing. I use it in my evening routine 5 days a week straight after cleansing. Sometimes I use it less frequently depending on how my skin feels. ✨Why its good? It has 5% Glycolic Acid (AHA), which is gentle but yet potent enough to work. Even my rosacea cheeks are happy with it. It also has Aloe which helps to sooth skin and hydrate. Other ingredients to note :Witch Hazel, Horse Chestnut, Ginseng extract, Panthenol. If you are too sensitive tho Glycol as like any other acid can irritate and over exfoliate, so always do a patch test. ✨What it does for my skin personally ? -improves texture -brightens aka glow -exfoliates and helps with blackheads -keeps breakouts at bay I honestly love this, it easy, straightforward and quite affordable as you don’t need much. It does have some fragrance, so if you are sensitive to that than this beauty isn’t your pick.
