📝 THE ORDINARY NIACINAMIDE 10% + ZINC 1%
AIMS TO :
• brighten skintone
• control sebum
• minimize pores
• improve fine lines and wrinkles
After 2 months of usage, it’s time to write a review on this. I was most interested in this serum once I’ve heard about The Ordinary from @deciem. Probably because I love everything about Niacinamide. When I first tried it out for the first time, I was lucky enough because it did not break me out. The serum is thicker than water but it's easily absorbed into my skin. I don’t have to put much effort to apply this.
It also gives me the glowing effect after application which I love! ✨I am really surprised that it does help to brighten my overall skintone and I can see that my acne scars fade away pretty quickly compared to before. 😱 The obvious thing is that, it really helps to reduce the sebum production in my T-zone. My skin becomes less oily now and I am glad that this serum is not a disappointment!
BUT, I yet to see any effect on minimizing my pores. (duh) Nevertheless, it really works wonder on my skin. I would really recommend this if you want to try a good serum with an affordable price and if you are a beginner too!
REPURCHASE : Absolutely! But I want to try other serums from The Ordinary too. Maybe Alpha Arbutin after this.
This ground breaking product developed in the form of a balm, helps repair the skins natural barrier, adding softness and smoothness to the surface layers of the skin. High levels of Vitamin C have been added in an encapsulated protective layer, allowing the Vitamin to penetrate deeper and the anti-ageing properties to work much more efficiently. Amazon also contains powerful anti-oxidants in the form of Anthocyanin’s from the Acai berry. Ten times more potent than those found in red grapes; these berries provide the highest defence against free radical damage caused by environmental factors such as pollution, ultra-violet light, and smoking. Omega 6 and 9 essential fatty acids are present and are anti-inflammatory, helping soothe skin irritations such as Eczema, psoriasis, sunburn and any other topical skin irritation.
I know that a lot of people have mixed reviews about the @anastasiabeverlyhills Subculture Palette, but this is one of my favorite palettes of all time so I wanted to explain why it works for me and why I am obsessed with it. I love how unique the shadows are, and while I agree that they do have kickback, I have never come across a palette without any kickback at all, especially a palette with the majority of shadows being Matte. This is not a palette that you just throw on in 3 minutes and call it a day either. I have found what works best for me is using a smaller brush and tapping the brush lightly in the eyeshadow to pick it up. They are so pigmented that a tiny bit of eyeshadow really does go a long way. Then, instead of blending the eyeshadows onto my lid, I use my brush to just set them in place. Obviously certain shades can be blended beautifully, but others are on opposite spectrums of the color wheel and may not blend into a shade that your wanting or expecting. The eyeshadow hasn’t appeared patchy on me and also hasn’t oxidized, and I have used multiple Primers to test this out. The eyeshadows are super long lasting also which is huge for me because I sometimes work over 12 hours a day. Of course just because I love Subculture doesn’t mean that I think everyone should or will, but I do think everyone should base their own opinion on their own experience and not anyone else’s because this palette is too unique to assume it will work the same for everyone. ❤️❤️❤️ #anastasiabeverlyhills#abhjunkies#norvina#subculture#abh#eyeshadow#palettes#liquidlipstick#makeup

Do you guys prefer cushion balm pacts or traditional bb creams? I've been testing both from @buenomeditech and I'm currently preferring the traditional ✨ @bbcosmetic_official sent me these to review and you can buy on their website! I'm really liking the tube bb cream so far!
☁ Review: @cloud9_official · Cloud9 Magic Capsule Cleanser
☁ Description & Benefits: Non-irritating deep cleanser generates microfine oxygen bubbles upon contact with the skin to wash away pore-clogging impurities.
- Encapsulated Goat Milk Extract (Nourishing): The fat globules in goat milk are six times smaller than those in cow's milk so it's able to effectively penetrate the skin & provide beneficial nutrients such as beta-casein protein (also found in breast milk) without irritating skin. The added goat milk extract offers superior moisturizing properties, leaving the skin feeling soft & comfortable.
- Rice Water (Brightening): Rice water contains a high amount of vitamin B & minerals that help to purify & brighten dull skin.
☁ Ingredients: [See last pic for full list]
☁ My Thoughts: Over the past few months I've been extremely picky when it comes to facial cleansers & bc I struggle with dry skin I usually stick to non-foaming cleansers but the Cloud9 Magic Capsule Cleanser seems to be the exception since it leaves my skin feeling super soft & so incredibly comfortable! This cleanser comes in a cute, plastic canister with a pump & only a small amount is needed to achieve a face full of foaming bubbles. The cleanser starts off as a white-ish gel with yellow globules (goat milk extract) dispersed throughout. Once the cleanser comes in contact with the skin it begins to foam up A LOT! The foam rinses away quickly & completely, leaving my skin feeling clean, refreshed & moisturized.
@0.8l_usa, @cloud9_official & @claireskorea were kind enough to sell me this product at a reduced price in exchange for my honest review.
Love using this castor oil at night time on my lashes. Thank you @skyorganics.us for sending it for a review. I use it after removing makeup at night time. After just a few days of use my lashes feel healthier and look better. Haven't used it long enough to know if it really grows lashes but have always heard how castor oil is good for hair growth for lashes and eye brows. The fact that this one is organic is even better. I notice a difference with my lashes the next day when I put on mascara, they just seem fuller and healthier looking. #review#castoroil#skyorganics#makeuptalk#beautyforum#beautycommunity#skincare#skincareoil
Day 19 of the #MaskMadness by @maskaddict, @mapletreeblog and @miirushop had the topic of Soothing and I chose for it the Lebaton Aloe Soothing Essence Mask. Because of my dry and sensitive skin and my mild redness (the bane of my existence that won’t totally go away), most of the time I look for soothing in a sheet mask so it can help me alleviate some of my redness, if not all, after my nightly chemical exfoliation sessions. Notable ingredients of the Aloe Soothing Essence mask are aloe leaf extract (5th place), camellia leaf extract, witch hazel extract, morus alba bark extract, triethanolamine, and sodium hyaluronate in the upper half of the list. It also contains centella asiatica extract but that is almost at the bottom.
The sheet is of medium thickness and medium softness. Its fit and adherence are almost perfect. The essence is a thin clear gel with extra for my face, neck, chest and arms. When opening the mask, there was a faint, pleasant and refreshing, aloe vera/cucumber scent to it, but it unfortunately very quickly went away and the mask remained scent-free. It took the remaining essence about 3 to 4 minutes to fully absorb and it left quite a bit of stickiness behind.
Afterwards my skin was very moisturized, plump, and a considerable amount of redness gone. I feel that this sheet mask would be too rich for people with oily skin but for the ones with normal and dry skin this mask can be very very good all year around and especially during the winter months. I enjoyed this Lebaton mask as much as their other flavour, Pearl Whitening Essence mask, and I will be repurchasing also this one 😍😍😍.
This palette 🙌🏼🙌🏼🙌🏼 I know it'll be weird to some people but to me this palette is so special - I have been watching @jaclynhill from the moment I started getting into makeup and she's been my number one fav since! So I'm just so excited to own something that I know she put her heart and soul into ❤️ and it truly is perfection👌🏼👌🏼👌🏼 I feel like a proud friend - biggest congrats Jaclyn! #MorpheXJaclynHill#morphebabes#jaclynhill
There's nothing like taking a week off of IG and then putting together a pic showcasing my favorite product = masks. It's #MaskMonday and do I have a collection to share! I can't take credit for this beautiful idea - saw I similar version from @moodsandviews a few weeks back and loved it. I need a few more colorful masks like those from @tatcha and @kiehls to add to this so maybe I'll post a v2 in a few weeks. I've tried all of these so feel free to ask and I'll give my honest opinion. Happy masking!!!!! 😘 😘 😘

So close in color, yet so different, which is why I needed both 😁 one is lighter with a cooler tone and the other is slightly darker with a warmer tone. I like to use the cooler on the lid and the warmer in the crease and under the eye...very natural, easy look that I love ❤️ #lauramercier#matte#caviarstick#eyecolour#creameyeshadow#aunaturel#caramel ❤️ Swipe for more pics and swatches!
I've been using @kikomilanousa Eye Base for a bit and I'm really liking it! It has a smooth creamy feel. It goes on a very light pinky beige from the tube but as you spread it on, it becomes a sheer brightening base for your shadow. I use concealer first to correct for my scary red lids and then apply the Kiko over it. It keeps my shadows looking vibrant and fresh all day! I have no creasing and I've really loved how it holds the shadows on true to their color. Kiko is not an expensive brand but it looks like it and performs like one. Isn't that a sexy shape that the tube has? I was gifted this item thru @octoly by Kiko Milano USA for free and wasn't paid for my own honest opinion. I'd recommend this eye base. #octolyfamily#kikotrendsetters#kikousa You too can join #octoly https://octoly.app.link/D30DTBWcKG
