Gold & Hydration.
.
.
Tonight its all about getting moist! Lol. No seriously. This morning I woke up & my skin was looking pretty good, but I had to run out immediately meaning all I did was wipe my face down with Miceller water apply some moisturizer and all important sunblock. That would be cute & work out if I didn't have acne prone skin that's been a bit on the drier side of things lately, but by this evening my face was grease city. Sigh.
.
.
.
That's my skins’ way of saying don't try to get cute on me. If you don't hydrate you SHINE. 😂. So tonight I purged my pores and proceeded in with the hydration.
.
.
.
Mask: @origins Clear Improvement Active Charcoal Mask To Clear Pores. I'm still testing out this mask honestly. I do like how my pores seem to "shrink". Psst pores really do not ever change size that's an urban legend. I had some tingling upon initial application this time which I didn't before. My skin wasn't irritated but it did leave me wondering if I had some nastiness brewing underneath that this mask pushed out. I don't have sensitive skin at least not from the neck up so I'm not sure what to make of it. I'll be keeping an eye out with each use. .
.
.
Sheetmask: I found this BioMiracle Hydrogel Gold & Ginseng Mask at Marshalls. The ingredients which include sodium hyaluronate, Ceramide NP, Raspberry Ketones, collagen (mixed feelings) Panax Ginseng Extract and yes gold 0.01ppm 🙄 appealed. They sounded fairly hydrating & lets face it the mask was purchased and needed to be used. I have a 5 pack. The size of this thing was small for my 5 head but I was actually pretty pleased with the overall performance which was to hydrate. I don't know about no fine line and wrinkles. I don't really have too many of those except subtle smile lines and they appeared full after taking off the mask. I still had to go in for more hydration though. I'm not sure I can fully blame this on the mask because I didn't take care of my skin as I normally would this morning so I was super dry going in. Full fair review when I'm not slacking coming.

Word of warning: with acne and sheet masking you have to be careful about how much ⬇️

QOTD Double Time: 1. Have yo tried this cream? 2. Are you a cat person? .
.

Here's my review of the @beautyofjoseon_official Dynasty cream, featuring an appearance from my little prince Archie 😽. Swipe to see the super cool textures! .
.
.
First thing the packing this cream case in was so pretty and I almost didn't want to open it 😭, but I did and the next thing that hit me was the amazing smell of the cream. It's a floral scent that just is 👌🏾. I love it.
.
.
.
I'll start by saying that I enjoyed this moisturizer so did my sisters as you can see in the last slide it's almost done. The list of ingredients is a long one on this cream is a long one and honestly there are some that I've nervous seen and had to look up. CosDNA shows Glycerin Stearate SE (Emulsifier) as an acne trigger level of 3 and an irritant level of 2. Stearyl Alcohol, Cetearyl Alcohol, Steric Alcohol and Olive Oil all have acne trigger levels of 2 and Dimethicone with a level of 1. I will say me and my sisters did not experience any breakouts from using this product but having the information is always helpful. .
.
.
This is a very moisturizing and rich cream that I only use at night. Its meant to provide a radiant glow and moisture while improving skin texture and elasticity. This is an anti aging Cream that is supposed to help with fine lines, I don't have mature skin, so I can't speak for those claims but for the rest I can. I find it to provide my skin with a nice layer of moisture that doesn't just sit onto of my skin but really absorbs well and in the morning my skin always looks bright and glowy, which I love! .

#abnewyearstashchallenge day 12 features creams! Honestly don’t use too many creams in my routine but I tried @107oneoseven cream as a sample and had to have the full size. The @drunkelephantskincare wasn’t a good fit for my face but I love it as an extra boost for a hand cream.

Okay so it's been a few days since I rolled and my skin needs a little exfoliating. I use the @leahlaniskincare Honey Love mask but VERY GENTLY. I also have been liking using the Laniege lip Mask during the day to give my lips he extra ooomph and moisture they need. .

Long overdue review of the earths recipe gigawhite radiance serum which I've been using for about 7 weeks now.

This serum features gigawhite as the main ingredient. Gigawhite is a complex containing extracts from Swiss alpine plants such as edelweiss, lemon balm, primrose etc. Also contains brightening ingredients like Niacinamide which is 3rd on the list, licorice root extract, tranaxemic acid, bifida ferment lysate and and at the bottom of the list ceramide NP, cholesterol, lactic acid and palmitoyl pentapeptide-4.

I used this twice daily... That's a testament how good this is and how much I like it. A light weight gel texture, very subtle fragrance that's barely noticeable. Two pumps is enough for my whole face and it just absorbs beautiful to leave a slightly matte and smooth finish, in fact I think this helps other products absorb better and during day actually helps keep my face less shiny.

I do believe there's been an overall evening out and subtle brightening of my complexion ( I used this for almost 5 weeks before incorporating the vitamin c serum). Also acne scars did not darken as much as usual and lightened quicker than before the serum. I don't think this had any effect on pre existing scars though. Also note I've been using this together with the Buffet serum by the ordinary which is a cocktail of peptides and probiotics.
45 ml but it feels like a lot, hygienic pump that gave me no problems, has a mechanism to push the product up as the quantity dwindles so that you get every last bit of product out (I really appreciate that... if you've ever struggled to get that last bit of product settled at the bottom then you know how annoying it is!) I have really enjoyed using this and would totally repurchase in the future.

Clarify & Hydrate.
.
.
I planned on getting my AHA/BHA on tonight with my Herbivore Botanicals Clarifying Mask since last night I used a mask that really didn't contain these elements (see prior post) when I got some late evening #skincaresnailmail. It contained a mask I'd recently discovered and was feeling pretty excited about given all the positive press out there. .
.
.
That's right I'm talking about the @innisfreeusa @innisfreeoffical Super Volcanic Pore Clay Mask 😍! If you're wondering what the difference between the Super and the Original formulations are apparently the OG is better at controlling sebum (which since I started using my Manyo Factory ampoule no longer really exists) and the Super is better at treating pores. The super also contains walnut powder so you get a teeny tiny bit of physical exfoliation at the end when you rinse this mask off. Both also contain lactic acid, bentonite & kaolin clays. .
.
.
My skin was soft at a baby's butt when I scrubbed this mask off. I was like oooohhh - yas yas!! I followed it up with my Mizon BHA/AHA Toner (I do this everytime I mask to put the pH of my skin back to its correct level) and followed with a #hanbang centered sheetmask from #JSCosmetics. This one is the Shang Wang Mushroom (Sensitive Type). Its insanely hydrating & its' ingredients list reads like a who's who of botanical and herbal extracts that I adore along with the fact it stays moist for 45 minutes of intensive hydration!
.
.
.
I completed my usual nighttime routine of serums, ampoules etc but since yesterday evening I have begun to work in some skinceuticals that I'd ordered from @deciem 😊. The Hyaluronic Acid serum and Rosehip Seed Oil. Basically I keep waking up with skin that is a bit less hydrated and plump than I feel it should be considering all the masking I've been doing, drinking of water, and humidifying the air to cope with winter dehydration. This morning I added the hyaluronic acid serum. Last night I added the oil as my final step after using the NMF. Nothing ground breaking has happened yet nor did I expect it too but I did have a little more plump during the day as a result.

QOTD: What's your current favourite or all time favourite night cream? Let me know! .
.
.
Okay y'all have spoken and you chose the @youthtothepeople 's Kale+ Spinach Green Tea Hyaluronic Acid Age Prevention Moisture Cream (That is a loooong name). I purchased this in a set of that came with a sample size of their Cleanser and Superfood Mask, both of which I have not used. Swipe for textures and a peek a boo fun picture! .
.
.
I've been using this cream for weeks and I love how light yet moisturizing it is. This is a great night Cream for my combination skin that smoothes on like a dream and works wonderful with other products.
.
.
This cream claims to moisturize, rejuvenate, and restore your skin and is made without parabens , sulfates, and phthalates. I love to reach for this morning and night to provide a quick boost of moisture and softness. The texture is also wonderful and it smells fresh and clean. This cream doesn't make me more oily during the day yet when I use it at night, I sometimes don't feel the need to use a sleeping mask ontop. Especially with some other hydrating products beforehand. .
.
.
Overall I am very happy with this cream and I would repurchase it again. Special shoutout to my good friend @projectskin_ for recommending it to me. Thanks girl 💕💕😘😘😘. .

Day 14 of the #25daysheetmaskchallenge No I have not stopped masking. I have been using clay and sleeping masks. This challenge only sheet masks count. Today I was really excited to use the #ibeauty Super Moisturizing Duo Lifting Mask. I must say I was quite disappointed. The mask was very intense almost like an astringent. I also thought the serum would be a cream consistency. It was watery. I will definitely be using this mask again at least two more times. Three times is my rule to get a feel for products. And to decide it I will continue to use them. #kbeautyskincareroutine #kbeauty #sheetmask #sheetmaskaddict #blackgirlsofkbeauty #hairbonnetchronicles *

Today's Friday so you know what that means: ACNE UPDATE TIME! WOOT WOOT. Honeslty, I've been loving how my skin has been for the past 2 weeks. My right side has calmed down ALOT, and most of the spots have either disappeared or have become scars. Which I'm dealing with so don't worry! Anyways progress is happening and I am that much closer to clear skin.if you'd like to see my progress since October head to the first edition of Acne Updates and check it out! I also have a new spot on my cheek which I have named Elvis solely on the fact that when he leaves I may scream," ELVIS HAS LEFT THE BUILDING" (swipe to pic 3 to see him in action) Ya know having fun with my skin issues. I've also circled the active spots I have to distinguish them from my scarring etc. If you'd like to know what I'm doing to deal with my scars, and PIH then head over to my last post and catch up! As always we finish up with a shiny selfie 😁. I've been using the same routine as the last Acne Update just more consistently! @mariobadescu Enzyme Cleansing gel, Lapis Oil, Blue Tansy, and Blue Clay from @herbivorebotanicals have been the MVPS as well as my acids regimen from @deciem Salicylic and Glycolic! .
.
Anyways I just want to say Happy Friday to everyone and thanks for all the wonderful and motivating support! Love you guys 💕💕💕. .

Hallelujah!!! The never ending Swanicoco emulsion has finished! Talk about milking every penny... I went from disliking the smell to loving it and I've really enjoyed how soothing and light weight it is, with snail secretion filterate, hydrolysed collagen and camellia sinesis leaf extract it always cools my skin.

Replaced by this gorgeous True water light gel cream by Thank you farmer which I was vexed to discover expires this year ( I really want to use my 107 cream instead 😫). It really is a light weight gel and pink 😍. Very soothing upon application, absorbs immediately, I'm not sure how moisturising this is. It has Niacinamide, sqalane and licorice root extract. Strongly fragranced and doesn't look like a lot (for the price) so I'll probably finish this soon. I've seen good reviews for this... looking forward to using it.

Clarification - Failed!
.
.
Have you ever bought a product thinking it was one thing and then on closer inspection realized it was nothing like what you wanted?
.
.
Yesterday I focused more on treating and clearing out my pores today is time for a nice gentle resurfacing clarification. You might notice a lot of my masks are deluxe/travel size and that's because right now I'm parsing through several masks. Some I have already purchased over and over i.e. the Herbivore Blue Tansy Mask or my Drunk Elephant Babyfacial however I'm always looking to try other clarifying masks and expand that aspect of my collection. These are the masks I use to continue the benefits of gentler resurfacing during the week vs the very strong exfoliation I do over the weekend during my facial.
.
.
.
Today I tried the @tataharperskincare Resurfacing Mask. This mask is supposed to be a mild beta hydroxy treatment to improve natural radiance and uneven complexion. Ingredients include pomegranate enzymes & the beta-hydroxy comes from willow bark and meadowsweet. This mask also happens to contain lactobacillius ferment extract. I use that a lot in my daily skincare so it sounded pretty good. I'll be honest though and say post masking I wasn't really impressed by this one. I had the mildest of tingle while it was on but that's it. Also the smell of this mask left something to be desired - medicinal old fruit and I didn't see any real radical change in my complexion post masking.
.
. .
In hindsight I wished I'd purchased the Tata Harper Clarifying mask instead because upon perusing the ingredients I could see what I really wanted was to purchase something with AHA/BHAs or concentrated fruit extracts. Oh well I'll finish this up and finalize my thoughts but I don't think this is going to be a keeper. .
.
.
I followed this with the @caolion_usa Where Is Pore? sheetmask. I really wanted to just sort of shrink down my pores and extract anything the resurfacing mask managed to pluck out. This was my first time trying this mask as well. Lord the essence in this mask sunk in so well and despite drying down in about 20 minutes there was so much essence left on my face that I patted ⬇️

#abnewyearstashchallenge Day 11 features Eye Care! I really am terrible about this particular step and quite frankly don’t know if any of these products do a thing. Not a huge fan of tarte for obvious reasons 🙄 plus it burns like the dickens. @shiseido is the only one that shows me noticeable differences every time I use it.
