I thought I'd give some thoughts on skin care products I have tried in 2020. I will talk about more products in future posts, but let's start with this. What I loved ❤ NEOGENLAB - Sur.Medic Azulene Soothing Pepthide Ampoule After my skin got randomly sensitive (currently being screened for lupus), a lot of products I already had in my routine just didn't work for me anymore and would make my skin angry. I needed to repair my skin barrier and use different products from what I used to use for my then acne-prone skin that could take a lot. This product was key in calming my skin and repairing my moisture barrier. This contains 10 peptides, Azulene blue capsule and ceramide capsules. Holy grail! The Ordinary - ''Buffet'' I heard somewhere that for peptides to be effective, you have to use them AM & PM. I use this in my bedtime routine to maintain the effects of the NEOGENLAB ampoule mentioned above. It's cheap and the packaging is glass. Very easy to incorporate this in your routine when taking a break from retinol that can be irritating. NEOGENLAB - Real Rerment Micro Essence I use this after double cleansing at night and it's so good. My skin just drinks it up and it doesn't leave any tackiness. It's super gentle and will give you a boost of hydration after your cleansing step. Been using this every day since this summer and I'm not even halfway done with the bottle. COSRX - Advanced Snail 96 Mucin Power Essence My skin has gone through changes this year, but this is one of the products that remained in my routine. I use this in the morning before my serums and it makes my skin looks so great! It's kind of gooey at first, but turn to a watery texture pretty quickly. It's actually impressive how this just sinks into your skin. It helps with my acne scars and post-inflammation hyperpigmentation. One pump is enough for my whole face! BIOSSANCE - Squalane + Marine Algae Eye Cream Many claim that eye creams are not necessary and I believe them. I personally like to use one because I set my concealer with powder and it can be a little drying. This is lightweight and is a good base before eye makeup. Helped with my fine lines and the packaging is glass. 4 stars cause it's not a necessity. Products I disliked 💔 Perricone MD - Hypoallergenic Firming Eye Cream This eye cream is so heavy and oily it gave me a few milias. Total rip off for the price and it contains palm oil. DRUNK ELEPHANT - T.L.C. Framboos Glycolic Resurfacing Night Serum I incorporated more niacinamide in ny routine and stopped using acids more than twice a week, so this is not a necessity unless you have 100$ laying around. Can be irritating. Kiehl's - Kiehl's Ultra Facial Moisturizer It worked good when I used to be on antibiotics for cystic acne, but now my skin doesn't absorb it, makes me greasy and breaks me out cause it's clogging. I recommend only if you have dry and flaky skin.
Rosacea/Sensitive skin routine!
This is my new routine for the fall. I recently found out I have rosacea and hormonal acne so I have been experimenting with what products would best suit my skin. For reference: the hormonal birth control pill is what has cleared up my skin dramatically, and I cannot attribute my routine to clearing it up. But my routine is keeping my skin’s moisture barrier soft, healthy and glowing. I will add a brief overview of my routine and why it’s working so well for me! HERBIVORE - Pink Cloud Rosewater + Tremella Creamy Jelly Cleanser This cleanser is everything.... it’s low foaming, soft and gentle and effectively melts off any and all makeup and sunscreen. It’s non stripping, the only smell to it is very natural and not strong at all, and it’s also very hydrating. Tremella mushroom provides more hydration than regular Hyaluronic acid, and plant based squalane emulsifies all of the makeup and dirt on the skin to gently yet effectively whisk it away. When you rinse, your skin feels so comfortable and never tight/dry. My tried and true CeraVe hydrating cleanser started burning my skin so this cleanser has been a game changer for me! evian - Brumisateur Natural Mineral Water Facial Spray I made a post about this mist. I find that the water in NYC can be a little hard so using this resets my skin’s pH balance and makes for a very soothing product in my routine. I follow with moisturizer after using this lovely fine mist. Kiehl's - Kiehl's Ultra Facial Moisturizer This is such a lovely, simple cream. It has squalane, glycerin, apricot, avocado, olive and rice bran oils, and glacial glycoprotein. This moisturizer is thick enough to help the skin retain moisture and stay soft and supple without being heavy. I love this and I think it’s perfect for the fall to keep combination/normal/oily skin in check! DRUNK ELEPHANT - F-Balm Electrolyte Waterfacial Mask Such a lovely product from drunk elephant! This is a multi use moisturizer/mask. It’s a leave on treatment chock full of hydrating and nourishing ingredients like electrolytes, vitamin F beads (they melt when you massage it in), a large dose of Niacinamide and squalane. This product is so lightweight yet moisturizing and really locks in hydration. I use this on top of my moisturizer night and day for glowy and happy skin! SUNDAY RILEY - Auto Correct Brightening and Depuffing Eye Contour Cream One of the only eye creams I actually like! There is a slightly botanical smell to it, but it doesn’t linger. This cream is very moisturizing, illuminating and instantly brightening/depuffing. When I use it I don’t have to use much concealer for my dark undereyes! GLOW RECIPE - Avocado Melt Retinol Eye Sleeping Mask A very gentle retinol eye cream. No peeling/irritation. I find this helps to smooth texture and helps milia too! Not very clinical but still a nice product.
SUNDAY RILEY-Auto Correct Brightening and Depuffing Eye Contour Cream
I have completed my first month of accutane! Now that I’ve finished the first month, my dosage is going up so I’m anticipating more dryness. 😩🏜 PROS: WILL I EVER WASH MY HAIR AGAIN!? It’s never greasy anymore and has so much body! THIS PART IS BOMB. Cons: oh my aching EYES. You know when it’s allergy season and your eyes ache and burn? Well picture that but like you’ve slept with your eyes pried WIDE OPEN ALL NIGHT with sand and sun blowing into them. Also, skin around nose is dry AF. Love looking like I have bats in the cave at all times. Also my hands peel?! I’ve never had ashy dry hands til now. Products that have been helpful when dealing with the shedding uglies and dry skin misery: CeraVe - Healing Ointment Feels greasy but offers sweet relief from painful skin cracking. Dr.Dan's - CORTIBALM LIP BALM HOLY GRAIL LIP BALM. Bio-Oil - Dry Skin Gel Feels greasy, but makes body skin feel nice after showering and before bed. Kiehl's - Kiehl's Ultra Facial Moisturizer Sinks into skin nicely, doesn’t clog my pores, keeps skin feeling good all day. Murad - Anti-Aging Moisturizer Broad Spectrum SPF 30 PA+++ I loved this before accutane and still love it. It’s a nice sunscreen because there’s no white cast and the shiny goes away quickly. GOOD MOLECULES - Hyaluronic Acid Serum Nice applicator and bottle, sinks in quick and not sticky! AND ITS CHEAP. Winner!! Tried one bottle and ordered three more because it offers such a nice hydration boost. ACCUTANE USERS: I CANNOT RECOMMEND THE DR DANS LIP BALM ENOUGH. IT IS NOTHING SHORT OF AMAZING for painful lip cracks, shedding, and tightness in the lips. 1000000% worth finding.

No makeup just skin products
SheaMoisture - African Black Soap Problem Skin Toner this toner has worked well for my acne. Especially when I stopped using the Tatcha products that made my skin breakout like crazy. DERMA•E - Acne Blemish Control Treatment Serum this serum I’ve been using for about three weeks and I notice my acne scars fading away fast!! You can see how small they have gotten from my post about the Tatcha products. Kiehl's - Kiehl's Ultra Facial Moisturizer I just started this moisturizer! I LOVE IT!! It just blends in so easily in my skin and doesn’t feel oily at all. It also gives my skin a little glow to it. I recommend all of these products!!

Retin-A (0.025%) Before and After
Hi guys! I’m 27 years old and I started using Retin A OBAGI - Tretinoin 0.025% Cream in March 2020. I have been using a pea sized drop every night as well as a little on my neck. After picture was taken August 2020! The wrinkles around my eyes have significantly reduced! I did get super dry skin when my skin was adjusting but power through it! After I apply this at night to a clean face, I’ll add a layer of Kiehl's - Kiehl's Ultra Facial Moisturizer . P.S. I took these pictures from my dentist. I got veneers on my 4 front teeth
