Today’s Ulta haul!!!!✨🥳
Hi all! Today I ventured off to Ulta in search of a new moisturizer! If you saw my last post, then you know that I’m currently searching for a new one, as my most recent product just didn’t do it for me :( I was desperate for something super hydrating, so I ended up with the Murad - Nutrient-Charged Water Gel! I have heard nothing but amazing reviews about this, and considering every Murad product i’ve ever used has yet to fail me, I thought i’d give it a try As for first impressions, this gal was PRICEY... not even gonna lie... but I was in the market for a new product willing to spend a little more than usual so I thought why not? It’s ok to treat yo self here and there 😉 But this cream is so THICK! It only took about a fingertip worth of product to completely coat my entire face comfortably, which is definitely what I want in a product! My skin gets so dry during this time of the year so lathering is key! It sunk into my skin effortlessly and i SWEAR my skin feels baby soft after one use! The only thing I’m a little weary of is that it has the slightest fragrance, however, my skin has never been extremely sensitive to that kind of stuff, unless it was like overly artificial. But this is a light, flowery scent that definitely smells natural and I can’t wait to keep using it! I also received a free Murad gift Murad - Free Intense Recovery Cream Deluxe Sample With Brand Purchase with the purchase and i’m excited to see what it does! Tbh not even sure of its actual use but I’ll try it out as an eye cream and see if it does anything 😂 My lack of sleep lately has definitely shown so i’ll try anything to get rid of my eye bags! While I browsed, I also came across the highly acclaimed COSRX - Advanced Snail 96 Mucin Power Essence, which I constantly see on Cherie, as well as any K-Beauty skincare forums! I bought it to see for myself what the rave was all about! I finally feel comfortable in my new routine so I thought it would be a perfect time to add a new step! I’ve used essences in the past and it always made my face feel soft and supple! I’ve heard that this is more of a preventative product for anti aging, so I probably won’t see much of a physical difference anytime soon, but I’ll try anything as long as it’s safe for my skin! I’ve learned so much while being on this app and I’m excited to experiment with new products! I never thought i’d be putting snail mucin on my face if you would have told me a year ago, but here I am!😁🐌 Lastly, I also picked up some peach slices - Acne Spot Dots. These have always been lifesavers for me when I have to wear a mask for a long period of time, and since my classes are going to resume again soon, that means the mask stays on for several hours at a time 🥲 Thankfully I have no active breakouts atm, but it’s always nice to have a stack of these bad boys whenever I need them!

I can’t live without these Acne Spot Dots from Peach Slices (I’ve only been able to find them at CVS). They are AMAZING and have been so necessary in reaching clear skin These small, translucent and fast-acting acne patches actively absorb a developing blemish or an already-present pimple. The sticker-like hydrocolloid acts as a protective cover over the treated area to keep you from picking and quickly and effectively helps reduce inflammation so the blemish becomes visibly smaller in less than one day. The transparent, adhesive dots are non-drying (so no flaking!) and come in a variety of sizes that can be worn night or day with or without makeup. They’re pretty inexpensive especially compared to some similar product ($5 for one sheet) and work so so well. HIGHLY recommend! peach slices - Acne Spot Dots

How-To: Heal and Protect Skin After Picking! ❤️
Skin picking generally affects most of us. From popping one pimple, scratching an eczema patch too hard, or dermatillomania, many of us have experienced the dread of making a pimple worse than it was before. These are some of my favorite products, tips and tricks for healing skin and keeping it safe during this gentle state. After the deed is done, it’s important to avoid actives and wash with a very gentle cleanser. My preferred is Glossier. - Milky Jelly Cleanser due to the minimal and skin healing ingredients list, lack of fragrance and no harsh stripping feeling. I wash for 60 seconds and rise with cool water, patting dry very gently with a microfiber towel. Next, I ice my skin for around four minutes to bring down the swelling and inflammation (similar to icing a burn or a sprained ankle). I constantly move the ice cube as facial skin is delicate, but concentrate it in areas that I picked or that experience redness and inflammation or pain. Bonus tip: you don’t have to just use water. Freeze green tea and aloe cubes for the added bonus of healing and inflammation fighting ingredients. After icing, I use a gentle hydrating toner. The key is to introduce humectants (hydrated skin is happy skin) and other inflammation fighting ingredients like green tea and COQ10 (an antioxidant) to the skin to help the healing process start immediately. I then layer on my favorite moisturizer or oil— use something you trust with no essential oils, drying ingredients, actives or fragrance. My fav is pure jojoba oil, it’s super gentle, pure, and antimicrobial, with no additives. It leaves my skin healthy and supple, as it has high amounts of vitamin A and E. It locks in the hydration I’ve added with the toner, and acts as a gentle occlusive. Furthermore it doesn’t overwhelm my picked skin with additives that burn and sting. Lastly, I layer on a variety of thicker products in areas that need it to heal my skin depending on the damage. If the pimple is still active, I use a peach slices - Acne Spot Dots to keep it clean from further bacteria and to suck any remaining gunk out. If I have scabs or scratches, I use either skinfix - Eczema+ Dermatitis Face Balm or TOPICALS - Like Butter Hydrating Mask which both employ collodial oatmeal along with other barrier repair ingredients to heal, hydrate, and further protect skin.

K-Beauty- Acne Spot Dots?
I recently got a purchase deal of buy one get one 40% off Peach Slices. This is the sister company of the K-Beauty brand Peach & Lily. The toner I purchased for them was so exciting I loved it! So when I got to try these I had high hopes. peach slices - Acne Spot Dots Ingredients: Hydro-Colloid: a substance used to extract fluids from wounds. My experience: These patches were directed to be applied to a clean and dry face and to leave on for 8 hours. So I wore it to bed. They came off and applied easy and didn’t have a smell. I put it on a pimple and it drained out what was in it. So I knew it worked, but I didn’t like how my acne spot looked afterwards. It was also kind of dry. Pimple Patches might be great for pimples that are ready to be popped or pus is breaching the skin. Yet mines was a smaller bump so I think I’ll stick to that rule. For paying $3 and receiving 30 I think that’s a pretty great deal. Have you tried acne patches before? 👇🏾

Easy Skincare for Days You Don’t Feel Like It
For those of us who struggle with mental illness, you know how hard it can be to do your skincare on days when you feel like you can’t be bothered to. On those more difficult days, I cut myself back to the basics of skincare so I’m still taking care of myself and my skin, but not over exerting my mental or physical capacity. Skipping a few days is fine, but I know my mental health is much better when I take care of my skin, so I use opposite action to get myself just to do the basics of my routine. I cleanse at night (and in the morning if i feel up to it), mostly on days like these I can’t be bothered to do things in the morning besides brushing my teeth, so washing at night is the best bet. That way you don’t go to sleep with all of the grime of the day still sitting on your skin. I skip oil cleansing and just go in with a gentle jelly or milk cleanser for a minute. If I really can’t be bothered to cleanse, I’ll use a micellar water or something similar and then wipe my skin down after that again with a toner soaked cotton round. Then regardless of how I cleanse, I rise with cool/cold water to help with inflammation, as usually I’m too tired to ice my face. This still gives me some of the positive benefits without spending too much time standing and rubbing ice on my face. Next I tone with a hydrating toner that has no actives but plenty of healing ingredients as I’m not using a serum, and lock it in with an occlusive oil or a sleeping mask like YOUTH TO THE PEOPLE - Superberry Hydrate + Glow Dream Mask all over my face and in place of eye cream. This keeps the hydration next to your skin to be absorbed during the night and treats it even without additional serums🌟 I then add pimple patches on the areas I might want to pick, a healing skin balm on irritated areas and I’m done with my skincare! Bonus points for a lip balm like BITE - Agave+ Nightime Duo which is all natural and leaves my lips feeling like silk all night! This is truly a low effort once-a-day routine for those times where you just can’t bring yourself to do anything.
