Castor oil was an old time favourite of mine unused it on my hair every day and in my scalp too. I'm not sure it helped with hair growth but surely coloured my hair. I am going to test it out on my lashes for the following weeks see what happens. I have heard so much goodie about Pomegranate Oil. This description was found on the @fushiwellbeing website: "Pomegranate seed oil is a highly prized oil that is nutrient rich oil and abundant with powerful anti oxidants and flavonoids that are essential for skin health. The oil contains ellagic acid, which is a potent antioxidant that effectively fights free radicals making it a superb anti aging fighter. Pomegranate Seed oil is also known to deeply nourish the outer epidermal layer which helps to boost skin tone, fade fines lines and revitalise the skin. Pomegranate seed oil is one of the most effective anti aging oils; it promotes health and elasticity of the skin, protects the skin and prevents skin damage. It is highly recommended for mature skin types, damaged or normal skin and dry impoverished skin."

This was an - after work - routine. Little bit of hydrate, deep cleansing, vit C which I skipped (oops 🙊) in the morning....
Actually I threw the big C away as A, it was near to empty B, had a different smell...
Started using this delicate @jurlique oil... Why have I abandoned it in the first place , that I do not know....

Spring has sprung and if you have started your 'spring cleanse' for your body this oil certainly helps. Massage away the winter aura with its fresh grapefruit, Gotu Kola and Green Coffee Bean blend. Perfect to tone this skin and detox the skin as your move into spring! #bodycare #cellulite #ethicalbeauty #ethicalbeautybrand #naturalskincare #awardwinning #oilsdorskin #ukgreenbeautyblogger #purebeauty #organicbeauty #greenbeauty #fushiwellbeing #skincare #slimming #skintones #bodybeautiful #springbeauty #beautyproducts #spring #detox #natural #feelgood

I had to pop a few supporting hydrating objects here in there as I felt the c15 needed a little extra help. (but mostly to save the oil!!). I'm not sure how they will turn out especially the Bioderma but trial error, trial error... I've just watched some Stephanie again and she advised to spray a most then go on with the oil - and this is exactly what I'm going to do. 😇😇

Yay! Mini-Review of the DHC Deep Cleansing Oil
💛
Official Information:
· water-soluble formula
· rich in vitamins and antioxidants
· nourishes and hydrates
Ingredients list:
olea europaea (olive) fruit oil, caprylic/capric triglyceride, sorbeth-30 tetraoleate, pentylene glycol, phenoxyethanol, tocopherol, stearyl glycyrrhetinate, rosmarinus officinalis (rosemary) leaf oil
.
.
✨I was convinced that this was smelling just like olive oil. Now looking at the ingredients list, it is basically olive oil 😂1st on the list (mildly comedogenic 1-2)
✨ 2nd ingredient is an excellent emollient. Very skin-replenishing as well as it resists moisture loss. It is derived from coconut oil. Interesting fact that
caprylic/capric triglyceride's comedogenic rating is 5!! 😱
✨ an emulsifier, a humectant
Then the famous ·phenoxyethanol·
Which we all learnt from @carolinehirons that "Phenoxyethanol, along with parabens, is not allowed to be in formulas at an amount higher than 1%. So you know that anything listed after either of those, is less than 1%..."
The followings are under 1%
✨ Tocopherol - basically Vitamin E
✨Rosemary oil
My point is pretty obvious.
The full description on their site is quite cheesy to me, but ibunderstand if they are just simply very proud that it sells very well.
While the other ingredients aren't harmful this is not more than a water-soluble olive oil to me.
Its alright, it's working well but when there are nicer options or something you already like a lot this isn't an absolute must have in my opinion.
. Have a Good Skin!💛🌛fm

So here they are! My routine dedicated to make PIH marks disappear.

Stage 1,
· BHA + Niacinamide / mist + oil
Stage 2, · Basically anything hydrating. Not all these at onceI also thought I'd throw a mild lactic acid 5% in there
Stage 3,
· Alpha Arbutin ~ Advanced Retinoid 2% ~ Azealic Acid and just finish it off with a serum. Simple as that. .
.
I have been alternating these for a couple of weeks now and I get great results back. Not so much when I was only doing the stage 1 but since I use stage 3. I do want to try Paula's Choice Niacinamide that might be stronger than the Ordinary.
Also note that these are my PM routines only. 😘😘

Yass! I got this rich cream sample alongside my goals know what order ages ago and been "testing" here and there. At first I was like - meh.. But then I thought well it's better to use it up than just throw it away. I started using this after facial oils and I noticed that the 2 would absorb particularly well together. Payed a little bit more attention to it and I became a huge fan! I use oils every day so it's important to me that the cream I apply at night doesn't still hang around in the morning....

Simple yet effective aganst PIH marks! ⭐️AA.R.AA⭐️
or Alpha Arbutin ~ Retinoid 2% ~ Academic Acid
I must confess again. Quicker results with these than BHA +Niacin on their own.
I have been very consistent in the mornings too which I am extra proud of myself and sure it helps a lot. I am getting there making this a "new habit" once and for all. I noticed I'm more excited each day than thinking ah..."I gotta do my face" @skincareuncovered update: I'm still really loving this routine
Good Night 💛🌛fm (for some unholy reasons I forget to include my cleansing routine like 90% of the time 😂😂I'm sorry.... It's there. It's the Caudalie ( I bet you some wicked fairy refills it every day..😳) on the relaxing days and the NIOD SS on working days)

This is Stage Hydrate
I would alternate these products use around 3 of them. They all very nourishing and hydrating just perfect in between heavy duty nights. The small brown glass represents am my @fushiwellbeing oils I have and I use different ones nearly every time. They are all delicious!😘👍

Yes. Consistency. Not my strength. It doesn't come easy to me. Narrow it down to skincare the worst part is the morning. I try to spend every possible second with sleeping and keep repeating the pray words " just 5 more minutes" 😳 I basically fail in the mornings and skip the routine then I feel guilty all day promising myself that tomorrow is the Day! 🙈 Lately I've been extremely brilliant compare to previous times. I am 2 baby steps more consistent than usual. Nights are 99% succes, it's just sometimes I stay up so late (3-5m) that is no point doing the night routine.😕 But! I'm on my way at my own pace. I read a 'rule' somewhere that it takes 21 days to create a habit and 90 days to create a lifestyle! 🌼⭐️🌼

Heavy duty Stage 1. I do feel that this is however still effective but not as much as the Stage 2. Now.... I will upload a detailed picture of my new routines tomorrow explain everything but I can comfortably say that I prefer the stronger combo. I imagine I could be applying this on my chest and the back of my shoulders because I don't really need so fast results.
Have a lovely evening! 💛🌛fm

Tonight's heavy duty skincare routine. I am on a mission to make these PIH marks disappear! I see more dramatic result after this combination than the BHA niacin but that is working too. I started using this @Omorovicza cleansing balm sample but my skin feels tight and dry straight after. I'll use this little sachet up and see what happens. Not a very good first impression is it?..
Good Night! 💛🌛fm

Recently filled this questionnaire (my very first post here) and I was asked which skincare step I like the most? This is the opposite. The worst part for me is the cleaning. I just don't like that part that much not sure why. Or not that I don't like I'm just like ah....are we done yet? When I didn't even get my flannel out...
These @k_d_cosmetics microfiber gloves-mitts were recommended to me and they make everything way more pleasant. I am quite rough on my skin. Generally. Can't help it. When I was a child I used to play outside a lot and get really tanned and my grandparents thought I was so dirty and told me to scrub my skin really hard.... So I guess it stayed with me. 😂😂 I bought several flannels but they became very harsh after I wet them. These I feel get even softer once they touch water. And it's a dream on my skin. They aren't overly expensive and you can find a ton other online. I tried to buy from the Rag company but they stopped emailing me once I told them these were for removing makeup. Weirdos.
@skincarefiend if it's your birthday soon I'll send you a pair! You must try them!😻😻(no cheating🙈)
The NIOD SS is the new love of my life that's why it sits on top.. Oh and I forgot to mention that even though cleansing still makes me run away a bit, the cloths and the right cleanser definitely make it more pleasant. 😇😇

Morning Routine.
Simple really.
The Una Brennan vit C is for my chest and the back of my hands. I don't like it it smells cheap, leaves a shimmery glow in the skin So if there's anything in there it can do the work on those areas. I don't just want to bin it...
About lactic acid. That's only the 5% and not sure where to use it in the routine now. Its very gentle. Before or after vit C ?
Have a nice day!😇

Yes yes I am already liking the NIOD SS a lot! Smell, texture, afterfeel. ✔️ ✔️ ✔️
That was a side note.
Actual Picture:
I am fighting with these post-breakout marks in 3 stages in my PM routine.
Stage 1:
· cleanse single/double
· BHA 2% (currently the gel I have the liquid too) from Paula's Choice
· Niacinamide 10% + Zinc 1% from The Ordinary
· Hydrate Spray + HA
· To Rosehip/Marula/c15 any natural facial oils
· goodnight sleep

How do you fight against these "post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation marks"? (😰)
Let me know and I wishing everyone a happy day!🌛💛
