My Glowy Winter PM Routine
After a full day of running around fulfilling the needs of my 8mos old (the adorable, pudgy little tyrant she is), my evening skincare routine is a welcome excuse to unwind, and wash off the grime of the day. It not only feels great, but it leaves me nice and glowy. I have sensitive, combination skin, and tend to get drier during the winter time. I like to layer up more during this season on skincare, so here’s my current PM winter routine! I’m not really a makeup wearer, except for filling in my brows and wearing sunscreen. That being said I always begin my PM routine with a double cleanse. I always go back to my tried-and-true oil cleanser, - Hadalabo Gokujun Cleansing Oil 200ml I love how gentle, effective, and affordable this product is and will always recommend it. Next I go in with Krave - Matcha Hemp Hydrating Cleanser . This cleanser is so gentle, hydrating, and never leaves my skin feeling dry or irritated. It does the job so well, with good-for-your-skin, barrier respecting ingredients, and it basically just smells like freshly brewed Matcha. For the quality it’s very affordable, and if you have sensitive skin, this might be a good cleanser for you! For toner, I’ve been using TONYMOLY - Wonder Ceramide Mocchi Toner I picked it up about 5 months ago; my skin was just irritated postpartum, and I was looking for an affordable, all-purpose toner. For 23 USD, you get 17oz of product, and I am just now finishing up the bottle. This is very much a no-frills, hydrating, gentle, cost-effective toner and has done a very good job of calming my irritated skin over the past months. About 3 times a week, I pump a few drops of COSRX - 2 in 1 Poreless Power Liquid onto a cotton pad and swipe it over my problem areas (my t-zone), then tap it in. I’ve been using it for about 2.5 months now, and definitely notice a difference in my pore size! My t-zone looks smoother, and my pore-size has been greatly reduced. I’ve also noticed less breakouts. I feel like I will probably repurchase in the future. I then follow up with a dropper of MISSHA - Missha Time Revolution Night Repair Probio Ampoule , mixing in one pump of GLOW RECIPE - Plum Plump Hyaluronic Acid Serum . This combo is so hydrating and leaves me super glowy. Apply GLOW RECIPE - Banana Soufflé Moisture Cream I love the glow this moisture cream gives, and the way it reduces any irritation or redness. I finish up with GLOW RECIPE - Avocado Melt Retinol Eye Sleeping Mask It doesn’t do much for my dark circles since mine are hereditary, but I love how hydrated my under eye area feels with this cream, and a little goes such a long way. What are your current winter routine faves?

GLOW RECIPE - Banana Soufflé Moisture Cream This is one of my favorite moisturizers! It has great ingredients but is simple enough for everyday use without irritation. It gives the skin a healthy glow and smells amazing. Things I love about it: 🍌 hydrating and lightweight 🍌 gives a nice glowing look 🍌 key ingredients: banana, magnesium, and centella asiatica 🍌 very calming and soothing 🍌 good for all skin types and does not cause breakouts 🍌 natural fragrance from banana I highly recommend this moisturizer. The only con is that it can sometimes be a little tacky depending on other steps in your routine, but that quickly goes away. I have already finished this container (pictured) and have another mini one that I use now. Also the GLOW RECIPE - Banana Crewneck is super comfy and such a cute shade of yellow! If you get a chance to get one you should. Glow Recipe recently re-released it on their website after it being gone for a while. I recommend getting the size you normally get for sweatshirts. It does run a little large, but mostly in the length of the sweatshirt. But because of that it’s great with a pair of leggings! If you have tried this moisturizer or have any product recommendations please let me know in the comments!

Banana Bliss 🍌
I am a sucker for bananas! So when I heard about Glow Recipes Banana Moisturizer I definitely wanted to try it. It only took me forever to do so!!! I personally like this one because it feels lightweight but you get a rich feeling moisturizer. It’s packed with amazing ingredients like banana, chia seed, magnesium, turmeric, and cica all to help keep your skin balanced and hydrated. It does have a banana scent, reminiscent of a banana laffy taffy (which happens to be one of my top favorite candies). The added fragrance is listed as last where as banana is listed in the top 15 so the fragrance is very minimal and can be from the banana BUT although this is listed as non-comedogenic and non-acnegenic there are reviews stating the opposite. If you are prone to breakouts you definitely want to patch test and be aware this has caused breakouts. I’ve had no issues with this and use it both as an am and pm moisturizer. For me that says a lot. I typically use a lighter moisturizer for the am and a heavier for the pm but this is balanced enough for both. I’ve tested a handful of moisturizers over the last few months and I’d put this in the top 3. 1- PAULA'S CHOICE - Resist Barrier Repair Moisturizer, 50ml 2- Milk MAKEUP - Vegan Milk Moisturizer 3- GLOW RECIPE - Banana Soufflé Moisture Cream I’ll have reviews to come on more moisturizers (Kate Somerville, Farmacy Beauty, Paula’s Choice) $39 is pretty average for a moisturizer and I’d say with daily use it would last around two months. The amount shown is all needed to cover face, neck and chest. I’ve actually not been a big Glow Recipe fan. I feel for a K-Beauty brand they are very gimmicky and overpriced but I was pleasantly surprised by this one. And they seem to be coming out with a few more hits that I’d like to try before making a final decision on the brand itself. Hoping to try soon: GLOW RECIPE - Avocado Melt Retinol Eye Sleeping Mask GLOW RECIPE - Blueberry Bounce Gentle Cleanser GLOW RECIPE - Watermelon Glow Pink Juice Moisturizer What I do like of theirs: GLOW RECIPE - Watermelon Glow Jelly Sheet Mask(no longer made 😢 best hydration boost. Next best thing... GLOW RECIPE - Watermelon + AHA Glow Sleeping Mask GLOW RECIPE - Plum Plump Hyaluronic Acid Serum(review coming soon) Have you tried anything from Glow Recipe? What’s been a hit? What’s been a miss? Thanks for reading. Hit the 👏 and follow if you enjoy ❤️ you my skinnies 🍒

Glow recipe product reviews
✅Watermelon sleeping mask: a hydrating, mild exfoliation night mask. The texture is gel like and changes to water like on application. Contains hyaluronic acid, glycolic & lactic acid,watermelon extract, pomegranate, banana, pumpkin extract which are all good antioxidants. Contains fragrance. It makes my skin super soft in the morning. ✅Watermelon glow mist: a ultra fine mist that hydrates & refreshes the look of makeup. Contains watermelon extract, HA, mild AhA. It definitely is one of my favorite mist for how fine it is, how well it hydrates & the smell is divine. I use it as a last step in my night skincare routine to seal in the hydration. ✅Pink juice Watermelon moisturizer: the Top product of the my whole GR products. The texture is little similar to the sleeping mask but more light weight, but the hydration is extra ordinary(especially along with the mist). Contains watermelon extract, HA, licorice root extract, various antioxidants. It truly is one of the best moisturizer i ever used. Brightens well, hydrates and the packaging is beautiful. Works great for various skin types. I am surely repurchasing this in future, i really miss it. ✅Banana souffle moisture cream: A thicker moisturizer than the previous one. Contains the goodness of banana, potassium, magnesium, cica, turmeric, chia seed extract. Lot of calming ingredients. Contains fragrance, smells like banana. Works good for combo, dry and normal skin, not for oily skin. Not a must have product. ✅The watermelon mist & pink juice moisturizer are my top picks.

My skincare routine for glowing skin ✨
Skin type: combinations, acne-prone. Skin concern: dull skin. Following a beauty routine has its benefits, keeping the skin clean and hydrated makes the skin always look healthy. To minimize the appearance of pores, prevent wrinkles and decrease fine lines I use VIVIER - Retinol 1% Night Complex its main ingredients are 1% pure retinol, vitamin C, vitamin E and shea butter. It’s well known that retinol promotes cell renewal and increases collagen production, making the skin appear firmer and healthier. To keep dark spots out, I use VIVIER - Serum 10 , it contains 100% pure L-ascorbic acid, one of the best formulations on the market due to its stability. Helps reduce signs of environmental damage (fine lines, wrinkles, uneven skin texture and tone). It’s an excellent ingredient to add to your beauty routine. I try to exfoliate my face 1-2 times a week with ACURE - Brightening Facial Scrub its main ingredients are sea kelp and french green clay, after using it my my face feels clean and fresh OR HUDA BEAUTY - Yo Glow Facial Enzyme Scrub a gentle exfoliating scrub, its main ingredients are papaya and pineapple enzymes, BHAs and AHAs. It’s really a gentle exfoliant, it doesn't irritate and leaves my skin clean, smooth and full of glow. Added an ideal toner to brighten dull skin tone like GEORGETTE KLINGER - Vitamin C Toner , helps control excess oil, purifies deep inside pores, calms redness and fades dark spots. Its main ingredients are kakadu plum (source of vitamin C), aloe, witch hazel, watercress and elderflower. I have been using this toner for 20 days and I love the results, eliminate redness and reduce dark spots, my skin looks cleaner, brighter and healthier. In the morning, I applied GLOW RECIPE - Banana Soufflé Moisture Cream , a lightweight moisturizer that hydrates and calms the skin. It’s ideal for combination skin, leaves my skin feeling hydrated and glowy without leaving it greasy and smells delicious. Masks are an excellent treatment to help with your skincare concerns. I have millions of masks, I use one that I feel is best for me at the moment. ▪️If my skin needs hydration - SUMMER FRIDAYS - R + R Mask ▪️If I need something stronger - The Ordinary - AHA 30% + BHA 2% Peeling Solution ▪️If my skin feels dry or dull - SUMMER FRIDAYS - Jet Lag Mask ▪️If I need to control excess oil -NEOGENLAB - Neogen Dermalogy Canadian Clay Pore Cleanser Sunscreen is the most important part of any beauty routine, since it prevents damage caused by UVB / UVA rays. One of my favorites is Supergoop! - Glowscreen Sunscreen SPF 40 , it leaves a subtle glow that makes you not look tired, in addition to leaving the skin very soft and hydrated. Gentle reminder: don't forget to drink water, staying hydrated is very important for healthy looking skin, sleeping well is also important as it helps the normal renewal and exfoliation of the skin.

One Year Progress
Exactly one year apart! I started my skincare journey 9 months ago. I primarily use Glow Recipe, but am slowly venturing out and replacing my lesser favorites of their products. These are some of my tips and holy grails! GLOW RECIPE - Banana Soufflé Moisture Cream holy crap this stuff really helped my redness, that was my biggest skin concern 2-3 times a week I do a chemical and physical exfoliant, I got this one in a boxy charm box and fell in love. I would recommend doing this in the shower and leaving it on your face for a couple minutes to really absorb the acids. Also I would recommend skipping the serums and night masks after this. Just use toner, eye cream, and moisturizer. Murad - AHA/BHA Exfoliating Cleanser I mix a vitamin C serum in with my AHA every other morning. I’m undwerwhelmed with GLOW RECIPE - Pineapple-C Bright Serum I don’t hate it, but I think I can find better once I run out. However I love their GLOW RECIPE - Plum Plump Hyaluronic Acid Serum it is gentle enough (for my skin) to use every morning and night, and one pump is all you need! double cleansing is a must! I’ll just use the tiniest bit of GLOW RECIPE - Papaya Sorbet Smoothing Enzyme Cleansing Balm even when I’m not wearing makeup because it has a lot of good ingredients for your skin. However if your skin is feeling dry, I’d skip it and just use a water based cleanser. I am also underwhelmed with GLOW RECIPE - Blueberry Bounce Gentle Cleanser I’m going to use it for before and after my workouts, but not worth the price point. Plus it is irritating if it gets in your eyes. I just ordered FARMACY - Whipped Greens: Oil-Free Foaming Cleanser With Moringa and Papayafor my morning and night cleanser and I am beyond excited to try it. a nice spray is a must! I use it after I cleanse and after I shower. J.R. WATKINS - Heritage Store Rosewater & Glycerin Spray this stuff is soo good!! My face is so soft after I have to force myself not to touch it. I loved GLOW RECIPE - Watermelon Glow Ultra-Fine Mist but I got to say I like the Heritage one and it is wayy cheaper. don’t be afraid of supplements! I just got some vitamin E supplements and I’ve been taking magnesium and collagen everyday too. lastly look into anti-aging pillows and silk/satin pillowcases. This is especially important for side sleepers. If you sleep on your side, you are smushing your face against it. When you are young, your skin is elastic enough to bounce back, but you’re hurting your skin over time. YourFacePillow - Anti Wrinkle Back & Side Sleeping Pillow
