πŸ‹REVIEW πŸ‹
Ascorbyl Glucoside 12% Solution @deciem .
.
From the brands webpage: πŸ‹Ascorbyl Glucoside is a water-soluble derivative of Vitamin C
πŸ‹It is considered a gold standard of Vitamin C derivatives
πŸ‹It is less potent than direct L-Ascorbic Acid. πŸ‹It's impossible to achieve extremely high L-Ascorbic Acid potency with this solution.
πŸ‹Aside from the general benefits of pure Vitamin C, Ascorbyl Glucoside has been shown to offer specific skin brightening benefits.
.
πŸ‹Why did I buy this?: I bought it for the anitoxidant protection and I was hoping it would brighten my skintone and help fade some small spots of hyperpigmentation (”permanent freckles” on my cheeks).
πŸ‹Usage: I have used this serum every morning with no exception since I opened it in the beginning of October, so it has lasted me about 3 months.
πŸ‹Texture: it is very lightweight and absorbs quickly, I doesn’t pill and is easy to layer with other serums. πŸ‹Odor: non. πŸ‹Irritation: non, I have had no stinging or irritation at all from this product, it has felt very nice on my skin.
πŸ‹Skin tone/pigmentation: I think my skin tone over all is brighter and more even. The hyperpigmentation ”spots” are still there and may even have become more visible since the rest of my skin looks more even and bright. I am unsure if these benefits are due to this product alone since I started using retinoid around the same time.
πŸ‹Glow: When I use this in the morning paired with Resveratrol and ferulic acid my skin has a lovely glow and a healthy look to it. πŸ‹Repurchase? Yes maybe, I really enjoyed using this, I especially liked that it is water based and easy to layer. It was a good gentle way to start with Vitamin C, but now I am ready to try something a little stronger – any suggestions are welcome!

🌿Sunday Morning🌿
.
I used the Alpha Lipoic acid from The Ordinary last night, so woke up with a nice glow, BUT my eyes were puffy, which they rarely are these days, and interestingly I used a heavier eye cream last night, which I haven't been doing for a while since I saw a discussion on @skinoverbeauty profile about not using eye cream at night, which made me want to test it out. I think it is hard to know for sure but I think that my dark circles have actually gotten a little less obvious since stopping with heavy eye cream at night (serum and light weight creams seem ok). .
🌿Cold Jade roller to the rescue for the puffiness - always works for me... .
🌿The After Show Treatment Cleanser @jordansamuelskin - love the smell and feel of this so cleanser much!
🌿SDSM2 @niod .
🌿Hyaluronic Acid + B5 @deciem .
🌿Ascorbyl Glucoside 12% solution @deciem - sadly only one use left in this.
🌿Resveratrol 3% + Ferulic Acid 3% @deciem .
🌿Ceramidin Cream @drjart .
🌿All about eyes serum @clinique - the coolnes and rollerball of this serum is perfect for puffy eyes.
.
Since my Vitamin C serum is finished I am looking for something new and can't seem to decide what to get, too many choices. Niacinamide is on my radar...
.
Have a lovely sunday everyone πŸ€ΈπŸΌβ€β™€οΈπŸ€ΈπŸΌβ€β™€οΈ

🎭Friday Masking🎭
.
.
This is my first time trying Masque Vivant @biologique_recherche
I got it with a gift certificate for @faciabeauty for Christmas.
I have seen a lot of people rave about the wonders of this mask on IG, so my expectations were really high! .
🎭The mask is really sticky almost like tar and hard to spread on my skin - wondered if I should have added water?
🎭Smells like a mix of fresh yeast and fishsauce/soysauce to me - I have seen a lot of debate about the smell, most say they couldn’t stand it at first - I didn’t mind it.
🎭I felt a little bit of a tingle, but not much. 🎭washed off after 20 min. 🎭My skin felt softer than a baby’s bum and felt really β€˜clean’ without being stripped - a little dry though, but that was expected since this mask is for recommended for oily/combination skin and mine is more dry/dehydrated.
🎭Overall I liked it and will definitely use it again πŸ‘πŸΌ.

πŸ’¦Hydration vaccine @niod - this is not a moisturizer but a shield to help the skin retain its own natural moisturizing factors, I am really curious to see how this works.
(πŸ’¦may add some Moisture surge before make up later).

πŸ€The Ordinary @deciem πŸ€ .
This was the year were I became friends with Cæcilie @makeupandmedicine.dk and was inspired to take care of my skin again. I had been neglecting it while having small children and I for a long time I was overwhelmed and confused about all the choices in the skincare industry having no idea what to choose and why. But she introduced me to The Ordinary and that was a complete game changer for me. Being able to try out what works for my skin without having to spend a fortune made me jump straight into the skincare pool, and I never want to get out.
.
These are the products I have bought and used.
.
ACIDS.
πŸ€Glycolic acid 7% Toning Solution (I love this).
πŸ€Lactic Acid 10% + HA 2% (I only leave this on for 10-15 minutes then wash off, afraid it would be to much for my skin to leave it on, but may try it).
πŸ€Salicylic Acid 2% Solution (I use this as a treatment for the occasional spot . works like a charm).
.
OILS.
πŸ€100% Organic Cold-Pressed Rose Hip Seed Oil (Lovely oil).
πŸ€100% Organic Cold-Pressed Virgin Marula Oil (more lightweight than Rose Hip Seed and absorbs faster on my skin, my favourite)
.
HYDRATORS.
πŸ€100% Plant-Derived Squalene (not a big fan, but mix it with NMF and the serum foundations and that works well).
πŸ€Natural Moisturizing Factors + HA (I like this moisturizer, but often mix either oil or squalene in it to make it a bit heavier).
πŸ€Hyaluronic Acid 2% + B5 (on my third bottle of this, it works, but the formula has been changed a bit so now I can only use it if I apply right after mist to thin it a little otherwise it pills).
.
ANTIOXIDANTS.
πŸ€Alpha Lipoic Acid 5% (I really enjoy this, it brightens my skintone and gives a lovely glow the next day. I use it 1-2 times a week and since it promotes cell turn over I never use it with other direct acids).
πŸ€Resveratrol 3% + Ferulic Acid 3 % (has an oily texture but absorbs quickly with moisturizer on top).
.
VITAMIN C.
πŸ€Ascorbyl Glucoside 12% Solution (I really like this, it is super lightweight, absorbs quickly and has never caused the least bit irritation, the guide on Deciems website classifies it as High Potency and Low stinging).
.

✨#theordinary Alpha Lipoic Acid 5%.
πŸŒ™#erborian Camelia Mask Γ‰clair - at Black Friday I ordered a 15ml sample of this mask but they send me the full size, so now I might as well use it πŸ€·β€β™€οΈ It is a night mask that claims to smooth, refine texture, hydrate and make the skin radiant - sounds allright with me πŸ‘πŸΌ. It has added fragrance which I am not a big fan of, but the smell is lovely - reminds me of my mother ❀️.
.
Alpha Lipoic Acid is an antioxidant which is supposed to brighten the skin tone and target signs of age. I couldn’t say if there is science enough to back that up, but I just really like the way my skin glows after using it ✨ @ms_hannah_e has an informative post in her feed about ALA if you are curious to know more πŸ€“
