It goes on without a white cast and contains niacinamide, which is amazing for acne and rosacea-prone skin. CeraVe - Resurfacing Retinol Serum Retinoids are the cornerstone of my skincare routine. They have anti-aging and anti-acne benefits. They fade dark spots and improve skin texture. This product by ceraVe is a perfect starter retinoid because it contains an encapsulated form of retinoid and licorice, which helps to calm down inflammation and fade hyperpigmentation. Use this at night after cleansing. Avoid this if pregnant or breastfeeding! SUNDAY RILEY - Good Genes Glycolic Acid Treatment This is one of the best exfoliants on the market. It contains lactic acid, one of the most gentle and effective alpha-hydroxy acids you can use in your skincare routine. It also contains licorice, which helps to fade dark spots and calm redness. This is best used 1-2x a week at night. Avoid using it on the same nights as your retinol. This product does contain lemongrass oil, which can cause irritation or allergy in a very small group of people (<1%). Always make sure to patch test.

SUNDAY RILEY-Good Genes Glycolic Acid Treatment
Hormonal/Cystic Acne approved - They WORK
If you know me, you know The Ordinary is my first favorite brand and Sunday Riley is always competing hard with it to be on my Faves list. I am obsessed with these picks from them. I have my reasons to love this brand these products. Being Acne prone and dealing with a lot of skin texture, dullness and hyperpigmentation I always am looking for products that 'work'! No BS simply work, and these products work for me. I have seen dramatic changes in my skin when I use these. I'm going to order these from the most effective and my favorites to the least! Sunday Riley was one brand which was hell expensive for me but on the other side they worked really well. I don't purchase them often as I purchase TO, but whenever I can I don't rethink. If you want products that work these are the ones: 1. A+ Retinoid SUNDAY RILEY - A+ High-Dose Retinol Serum - This is my most favorite and most picked one from Sunday Riley. Guys, take my word on it this stuff is amazing. I love retinol and I know my skin responds in a certain way when I apply Retinoids. So, if some retinoids don't show the expected results I know they're not the ones for me. This Retinoid made my skin so soft, supple and healthy while taking care of those stubborn Hormonal cystic acne. Also, it exfoliates amazingly and reduces the look of PIH. ✨Exfoliates well ✨Reduces look of fine lines and wrinkles ✨Reduces Hyperpigmentation (PIH, Melasma) ✨Brightens and tightens skin ✨Makes skin soft and reduces irregular texture 2. Tidal SUNDAY RILEY - Tidal Brightening Enzyme Water Cream - This is second most loved product from SR. It's because it has Alpha Arbutin in it. Alpha Arbutin is an amazing brightening Anti-Oxidant that slows down the melanin production leading to reducing hyperpigmentation. This cream is actually a lightweight gel that gets absorbed in skin quickly and I have experienced a brighter, healthier skin with it. ✨Brightens complexion ✨Reduces Hyperpigmentation, slows down melanin production ✨Gel like texture doesn't sit heavy on skin ✨You can mix L-ascorbic powder or any vitamin C serum with it to boost it's brightening effect. 3. Vitamin C SUNDAY RILEY - C.E.O. Vitamin C Rich Hydration Cream - I love this cream in winters because of it's thick but hydrating texture. Love this cream as it's an amazing moisturizer for daytime regimen. ✨ Relatively thick and creamy ✨Hydrates skin ✨Reduces hyperpigmentation ✨Tightens skin and makes it plump ✨Lasts long because you only need a pea size with it 4. Lactic acid SUNDAY RILEY - Good Genes Glycolic Acid Treatment - This is an amazing product for someone who is new to AHAs and chemical exfoliation. It exfoliates skin in a very gentle way and doesn't irritate skin. I like the creamy, lightweight formula that is equally effective as serum or toners. ✨Mildly exfoliates ✨Doesn't irritate skin ✨Creamy formula that doesn't feel heavy ✨Makes skin softer and reduces texture in just one use ( Mainly because of Lactic acid/ AHA) 5. Martian SUNDAY RILEY - Martian Mattifying Melting Water-Gel Toner - This toner has an interesting formula, it comes out as foamy gel into watery toner when it touches skin! It's amazing. It's a great product for acne prone skin and people with active acne. It has Bentonite clay, green tea, witch hazel, and marshmallow extract helps chill out redness, reduce excess oil, and tighten pores. ✨ Matte, shine-free finish ✨Slightly cooling and soothing when applied ✨Reduces the redness and inflammation ✨Reduces skin irritation ✨Use this after Thermal water and you'll find it more soothing ✨Witch hazel in this formula doesn't work as astringent and doesn't strip skin.

SUNDAY RILEY POWER COUPLE
I’m loving this. I know some people have said they don’t like it but like I always say everyone’s skin is different. All skin reacts differently and my skin is LOVING THIS DUO. So, I’m not gonna talk about “Good Genes” because I do have a post already dedicated to it. Just know I’m obsessed. This duo is definitely a power couple 💙🤍 Now for the Luna night oil, it absorbs so easily. It does have a light fragrance, at first I didn’t know if I was a fan but it has grown on me forsure. It’s really helped with my fine lines on my forehead as well as softening my smile lines. I like to pat it on my face first, let as much absorb into the skin on its own, and then I rub in what’s left :) Sometimes when I rub things in, I feel like it’s more on my hands rather than my face. I dunno, I think about weird things like that haha :) Pat first, rub later ☺️ If you love this info, please like this post. ❤️ PSA: 🚨🚨🚨 DO NOT USE IF YOU ARE PREGNANT DO NOT USE IF YOU ARE BREASTFEEDING USE SUNSCREEN SUNDAY RILEY - Luna Sleeping Night Oil WHAT IS IT? A next-generation retinol oil that boosts the look and feel of skin plumpness, while improving the appearance of wrinkles, redness, and pores for visibly younger-looking skin. DIRECTIONS: Apply 3-4 drops at night, to clean, dry face. Luna goes from blue to clear when massaged into the skin. MAIN INGREDIENTS TRANS-RETINOL: Belongs to a class of chemical compounds termed retinoids, it's the potent ester of all-trans retinoic acid. Helps fight the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines, promote skin elasticity, and stimulate exfoliation for clearer, smoother skin. Not appropriate for use during pregnancy. BLUE TANSY, GERMAN CHAMOMILE, AND CAPE CHAMOMILE ESSENTIAL OILS: Deep blue-green oils, rich in potent azulene. Wonderful for soothing the look of surface redness. AVOCADO SEED OIL: Great for plumping fine lines. Rich in anti-aging vitamins B,C,D,E, and A. CHIA SEED OIL: Richest botanical source of Omega 3. Powerful source of ALA, which helps minimize the appearance of lines.

Can my skin become “immune” to my fav products?
It can, but this is not very common. What is common is for skin to get accustomed and with time accommodate to some potentially irritating ingredients such as glycolic acid, lactic acid and retinol. That’s why is recommended to take it nice and slow when introducing more potent exfoliants to your routines. I have no idea how or where this myth originated but it always seemed very odd to me to think that my products would just stop working like that. So even if you’re not very visibly noticing a change in your skin after using certain product for a while it doesn’t mean the product stopped working or that your skin has become “immune” to it! When should you switch up your products? You might be wondering, well I’m no skincare expert, but I like to change my routines as the seasons change! So I’ll switch the heavier creams and balms from drier winter months to lightweight essences and serums for summer!

Lactic Acid: One Empty one Newbie
Empty – The Ordinary - Lactic Acid 10% + HA This product, while pretty effective, can be difficult to use. It has a completely liquid formula which means that it runs and drips everywhere (acid close to my eyes, no thank you!). So this does provide that smoothing that I look for in a lactic acid serum, but I’m ultimately wary of using it because it’s just not user friendly. I also find that the dropper in their packaging dislodges itself from the cap quite often, which means that I have to touch/contaminate it to fix it. Newbie – SUNDAY RILEY - Good Genes Glycolic Acid Treatment I have used this one before, and I think it provides really great results. It has a serum-like consistency which tingles a bit upon application. But I find that my skin is so completely transformed when I use it. It leaves my skin smooth and glowing, which is exactly what I’m looking for. I also love the pump in the packaging! Although this serum is pricey, I would definitely invest in it! Even though The Ordinary serum is about 1/12 the cost of the Sunday Riley one, I think it’s not worth it because it’s so difficult to use. I definitely recommend the SR one and will purchase it when I need a replacement lactic acid serum!

5 Minute 5 Product Make-up Routine
With an endless lockdown and having a baby in February I went months without wearing any make-up. It was an easy excuse. Im exhausted and Im not going anywhere, why bother 🤷🏻♀️ What I’ve learned is that taking care of my skin and finding a couple extra minutes to myself in the morning to put on some make-up has become my daily self-care. It’s about ME and makes me feel better. Here’s my quick 5 Minute 5 Product morning make-up routine: To start, nothing looks better than glowing skin. Here are a couple products I use as part of my skincare routine but go a long way to making my skin look better are: CLINIQUE - CLINIQUE Exfoliating Scrub A gentle daily scrub cream that polishes away dead skin cells for a smooth face SUNDAY RILEY - Good Genes Glycolic Acid Treatment Skip a primer and use this treatment! The claim is that it gives you smoother, brighter skin in 3 minutes and let me tell you it’s true!! SUNDAY RILEY - C.E.O. Glow Vitamin C + Turmeric Face Oil I love this face oil in the morning. I find it instantly brightens my face and gives me a sun kissed look. I use right before my bb cream. And I love the citrus smell as a little extra to perk me up. My Make-Up Routine: SEPHORA COLLECTION - Bright Future Gel Serum Concealer 🙋🏻♀️Tired mom over here. I need the extra help to cover up my dark circles. It’s lighter coverage than I would want but blends great and feels very light smashbox - Camera Ready BB Cream Broad Spectrum SPF 35 My multitasker, spf, moisturizer, sheer coverage Milk MAKEUP - Lip + Cheek A little on my cheeks and a little on my lips for a pop of colour and add a little life to my face SEPHORA COLLECTION - SEPHORA COLLECTION Brow Builder I love that this is super easy to use. Fills in my natural brows for a more finished look. CLINIQUE - High Impact Lash Elevating Mascara Last step a little mascara. I’ve received these in bonus bags for years. It’s a great everyday mascara. And you are done!
