DERMATOLOGIST APPROVED SKINCEUTICALS VIT C DUPE
DERMATOLOGIST APPROVED SKINCEUTICALS VIT C DUPE
Vitamin C is such a popular ingredient in skincare routines today and for good reason. Vitamin C is an antioxidant that helps fight against free radical damage from the sun, increase collagen growth, and evens skin tone. But which one should you pick? Skinceuticals vitamin C has been well studied and formulated into a stable compound with ferulic acid and Vitamin E, the only problem is that it's $166! Over the years many vitamin C products have been launch with varied efficacy. Maelove's antioxidant "The Glow Maker" serum is a great alternative for SkinCeuticals. Like Skinceuticals, Maelove has 15% L ascorbic acid (the most important ingredient), as well as ferulic acid ad Vitamin E. Maelove's serum is stable and very effective. The best part it's only $28! I recommending using your Vitamin C in the morning after cleansing. You get most of your sun damage during the day and therefore would want to have the vitamin C working to fight the sun damage. Results take weeks, I typically say use the product for 4-6 weeks before expecting consistent results. If you tried the product, please let me know your thoughts in the comment! SKINCEUTICALS - C E Ferulic With 15% L-Ascorbic Acid Vitamin C Serum just very $$ MAELOVE - Glow Maker affordable dupe 💛

Vitamin C 🍊
Vitamin C 🍊
Is one of the best anti-aging ingredients on the market and the key to having smooth and radiant skin. The best way to use it is topical (serums, creams). Benefits: 🍊 Helps fade hyperpigmentation. 🍊 Reduces the appearance of dark circles. 🍊 Protects against sun damage. 🍊 Diminish the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. It’s also safe to use in conjunction with other actives like alpha hydroxy acids (AHA), retinols and SPF. Vitamin C tends to oxidize, so it is important to use it on the indicated date, it becomes darkener or change color, you can continue using it but it no longer gives you the same benefits. The best derivative is L-ascorbic acid. I love it because it helps me to remove dark spots from my skin and at the same time protect it from new ones. It has also improved the fine lines I had. SkinTx - Serum12 This serum contained grapefruit extract and 12% pharmaceutical grade vitamin C derived from L-ascorbic acid. It was the first vitamin C I used, and I loved it! Its light consistency and fast absorption were the best. Unfortunately it was discontinued and that was when I switched to Vivier. Price: discontinued. VIVIER - Serum 10 Contains 10% pharmaceutical grade L-ascorbic acid. It is the serum that I currently use, it has worked well for me like SkinTx, it absorbs fast, and it has kept my skin healthy and protected from sun damage, I have been using it for at least 2 years. Price: $96 SPF Rx - Dual C + E + F Contains Vitamin C (derived from sodium ascorbyl phosphate), Vitamin E and ferulic acid (a combination proven to be highly synergistic in reversing photodamage and protecting the skin) and it has a blend of organic plant extracts chosen for their unique antioxidant, anti-inflammatory and skin brightening capabilities. Its texture is lightweight but personally I get pimples and that is why I stopped using it. I know many people who use this serum with excellent results. Price: $55 MAELOVE - Glow Maker This serum contains Vitamin C (15% L-ascorbic acid), Vitamin E, ferulic acid and hyaluronic acid and a botanical blend. Excellent product, it has an adequate amount of vitamin C and works very well. It is the cheapest and works very well, in addition to avoiding sun damage and reducing blemishes, it adds hydration to the skin. Price: $27.95 Definitely the product that I would buy all my life would be Vivier's, it gives me excellent results, protects my skin from damage and prevents the appearance of new dark spots, in addition to keeping my skin healthy. I use the Maelove serum when I need a little more hydration, it works excellent and doesn’t clog my pores.

My top 3 products for GLOWY skin ✨
My top 3 products for GLOWY skin ✨
These 3 have been my ritual for hydrated, glowy, happy, healthy skin !!💦☺️💗 It all starts with creating a smooth canvas... BIOLOGIQUE RECHERCHE - LOTION P50 PIGM 400 This product truly keeps my skin happy. It has evened out my texture, closed comedones while brightening! This formulation is targeted at brightening and its main ingredient is niacinamide follow by some AHAs + BHAs🌼 Then something to brighten dull skin... MAELOVE - Glow Maker My favorite Vitamin C product to date!! You truly notice the difference within days of use and it has lightened up some tough dark spots. I love the watery formula as it allows for a really smooth and luscious application. It features Vitamin C + Vitamin E + Ferulic Acid and Hyaluronic Acid for a boost of hydration. Plus the price can’t be beat 😝 Finally a moisturizer to lock all the magic in... FARMACY - Daily Greens Oil-Free Gel Moisturizer with Moringa and Papaya The glow this moisturizer gives you cannot be beat! You will wake up in the morning with your pores seemingly filled and an appearance of really smooth skin. I love wearing this during the day time too for a subtle dewy no make up look. The ingredients I’m excited about are Niacinamide, Sodium Polyglutamate and 4 types of Hyaluronic Acid!! Not to mention is smells heavenly 🪴

I’m Thankful for the Morning Glow

ESSENCE: SK-II - Facial Treatment Essence (Pitera Essence) I’ve been using this for years, I get it when I’m at a layover in Hong Kong or Korea so I get it significantly cheaper. However have I noticed anything? No. Nothing bad, nothing good. It is basically fermented rice for over $200. I have found so many dupes I’d like to try! NEOGENLAB - Real Rerment Micro Essenceor MISSHA - Time Revolution The First Treatment Essence Rx I are said to be better products for a fraction of the price so I will be buying when I run out!!! Fermented ingredients are wonderful for brightens, refining pores, hydration, improving texture, and is full of beneficial enzymes and peptides VITAMIN C: MAELOVE - Glow Maker Everyone needs vitamin c, and this is very reasonably priced, has a great formulation with vitamin E and ferulic acid, non sticky, and just disappears into the skin. TIP: Put in the refrigerator. I found that oxidising is just the nature of ascorbic acid, so this will prolong the life of your product! CeraVe - CeraVe Moisturising Cream I thought this would be too heavy, especially in the daytime. Nope! You can apply a little or a lot, it has Ceramides and totally does the job of moisturising and protecting that skin barrier, especially if you exfoliate a lot or use tretinoin. Do buy the one with the pump though! Neutrogena - Ultra Sheer Liquid Sunblock Broad Spectrum SPF 70 I love this because it’s super lightweight and rubs in so quickly! It does not pill, and I’m all for inexpensive sunscreen because you need A LOT. Ignore influencers who use a “pea size amount”. Not for sunscreen!!!! Slather it on!! Great sunscreens from Neutrogena are also Neutrogena - Hydro Boost Sunscreen SPF 50 and Neutrogena - Ultra Sheer Dry Touch Sunscreen SPF 55 . Dying dying dying to try PURITO - Centella Green Level Safe Sun!!! ✨✨Keep glowing!!✨✨

Skincare Alphabet - F is for Ferulic Acid
Skincare Alphabet - F is for Ferulic Acid
Yay! Finally time for one of my favorite and, to me, must have ingredients: Ferulic Acid! Ferulic acid is an antioxidant found in the cell walls of certain plants (rice, oats, apples seeds, etc) and serves the purpose of protection and preservation of the cell. This acts as other antioxidants do, slowing down the aging process and by reducing free radical damage on the skin. It has also been shown to greatly improve skin that has already experience damage from the sun and environmental conditions. This is an amazing ingredient if you are looking to combat signs of aging early, and in my opinion, the sooner you start the better. Ferulic acid is often paired with other antioxidants like Vitamin C and E to enhance their effects and provide more stability to unstable ingredients, like vitamin C. My favorite products that include Ferulic acid: Dr Dennis Gross - Ferulic + Retinol Triple Correction Eye Serum MAELOVE - Glow Maker SKINCEUTICALS - C E Ferulic With 15% L-Ascorbic Acid Vitamin C Serum

BeautyStat COSMETICS - Universal C Skin Refiner I got this to replace my skinceuticals CE Ferulic acid, and I wouldn’t call it a dupe but it is a good product. It comes out as a cream-like substance in a sealed pump bottle so you don’t inadvertently oxidize the product every time you use it (like the dropper in CE ferulic). Although the packaging preserves the product, it sacrifices the pleasant water-like texture with application. I say “cream-like” because it looks like a cream but it doesn’t feel like a cream. It feels more like a mousse. When you spread it on your skin it feels quite matte with out moisturization properties and absorbs readily. However, It definitely feels like you’re putting something on your face, unlike the feeling I get with CE ferulic which is basically when two become one 🎵. Beauty stat does sting a bit, probably because of the high concentration of vitamin c. Because of this, I generally use it at night to avoid sensitization. It feels like it could dry out your skin without a good moisturizer on top. Overall it’s a good product, but I think I’m going to try MAELOVE - Glow Makernext in an effort to find a good CE ferulic dupe. Beauty stat definitely lightens and brightens my skin, but I want to wear vitamin c during the day for the protective antioxidant qualities and save my PM routine for retinol and collagen building post microneedling. Who knows, I might circle back around to it in the future 🤷🏻‍♀️ BeautyStat COSMETICS - Universal Moisture Essence This is the first time I have tried squalane so I can’t compare this to any other products of the type. I got it on sale and had heard so much about the benefits of the molecule but I’m struggling to find it’s place in my routine. I’ve been using it, when necessary, to seal in moisture at night: it is lighter than an oil such as Marula or Jojoba. But I don’t really have a need for that function because the viscosity of the oil on top of my nightly routine doesn’t matter. When worn alone, it does not soak into my skin without being shiny, and I guess that’s what I was hoping for. It does seem to be non-comedogenic and not clog pores. Perhaps this isn’t a good fit for my personal needs because I have combo skin, maybe if you have dry sensitive skin OR are looking for a simple oil to seal your moisturizer in, this could work. Have you tried either of these products? If so, what’s your experience? Do you have any recommendations regarding their use? Drop me a line bc I love to hear what everyone else thinks and/or discover new ways to use products 💋
