As many of you already know, we’re not huge Vitamin C people because it’s kind of a pain to use, but we think we found a winner. ▫️ ▪️ L-Ascorbic Acid is the purest form of Vit C, but it is also highly unstable and potentially irritating to the skin, especially when used with chemical exfoliators. One of our favorite derivatives of Vit C is Tetrahexyldecyl Ascorbate, a lipid-soluble, deeper-penetrating, highly stable form, which also happens to be the only derivative that works for our skin. ▫️ ▪️ AOS sent over their 35% Vitamin C Collagen Rebuilding Serum ($118), which features 25% Ethylated L-Ascorbic Acid (optimal concentration is 15-25%) and 10% Tetrahexyldecyl Ascorbate. It also contains two of the strongest antioxidants we know and love: Superoxide Dismutase and Glutathione, which are free radical fighters that help reduce UV and pollution damage resulting in accelerated aging, extended hyperpigmentation, etc. Glutathione is also a tyrosinase inhibitor, which means that it can partially inhibit the melanin production process on its own, preventing hyperpigmentation. This formula is completely anhydrous (waterless), so it’s able to absorb as deep into the skin as Tetrahexyldecyl Ascorbate is able to.▫️ ▪️ So what have we noticed? Sarah has used this twice daily for a few weeks now and noticed pretty fast skin lightening, but no “collagen rebuilding” quite yet. This claim speaks more to the fact that these ingredients will help strengthen and promote collagen production over time, rather than immediately induce production, so don’t expect this to be Botox in a bottle (but then again, nothing safe is!). Sarah has never been able to use LAA without sensitizing her skin, such as the Cosrx Triple C Lightning Serum which has been sitting in our refrigerator for a year now, but thanks to this potent, yet as-gentle-as-possible blend, she can! ▫️ ▪️PS: Safiyah did purge with this, but she always does with LAA. ▫️ ▪️

Buon giovedì #igers Il natale si avvicina a che punto siete con i regali?😍 Oggi vi mostro questi dischetti struccanti riutilizzabili in fibra di bamboo di @peakstaroriginal I dischetti sono stati prodotti con materiali BPA FREE ed ecosostenibili 😍 Nel kit troviamo : - 8 dischetti in fibra di bamboo e cotone. - 1 sapone naturale 100% all'aole. - 1 ASCUIGAMANO interamente in cotone . . Devo dire che sono rimasta sorpresa, questi dischetti struccano molto bene inoltre sono morbidissimi per cui non irritano la pelle. Li ho usati come i comuni dischetti, quindi ho messo un gel detergente struccante direttamente sul dischetto. Si posso riutilizzare per cui una volta sporchi si lavano e poi si riutilizzano. È un ottima idea regalo 😍 Il Kit lo trovate su Amazon Avete provato questa alternativa? Fatemelo sapere nei commenti. #instaskincare#instabeauty#instamakeup#instaproduct#instatime#instalove#skincare#instareview#instaproducts#tagsforlikes#tagsforlikesapp#tflers

I somehow got lost and stumbled upon one of my favorite hair masks to date. I used this mask ONCE and my hair started to feel healthy again. My hair feels silky smooth. Did I mention it also smells AMAZING? I plan to use this mask once a week for deep hydration. I find it to be a good value and a little goes very far. I will continue to use this product until it runs out. I highly recommend it.

#ad In love with the Snow Mushroom Water Serum from @volitionbeauty ✨ Snow mushrooms can hold up to 500 times its weight in water, and has similar effects to hyaluronic acid, but its smaller particles help penetrate the skin more easily! Love how lightweight yet effective this serum is 💫 @volitionbeauty @sephora #sephoracanada
I love using products that will restore my skins moisture barrier— especially since I use acids and retinol on my skin pretty consistently. @eighteenb Firm and Replenish Serum is made with squalane, amino acids, and ceramides that help to moisturize, while their b-silk protein helps to form a barrier on your skin to keep in the nourishing ingredients. Their Hydrate + Restore Rich Cream contains ceramides, sunflower seed oil, gentianaceae leaf extract, and phytosphingosine which all help with deeply hydrating the skin. The b-silk protein that is found in their products helps to support skins natural barrier. Which then helps to improve skins radiance, texture, and firmness. It is also shown that over time it will help with elasticity of skin and to reduce fine lines.

What exactly does one do with a @glossier scarf? Not sure, but it makes an awesome photo prop. Also, can we talk about how amazing this mini skincare set is? The mini BDCs are the cutest, and I need Glossier to release them all in mini form. PS. I fully believe that @juanskindiary’s Glossier merch edits influenced the addition of the new headband.

I noticed yesterday that almost every single skincare item I have, is 60-70% percent used up 😱 this is a rare occasion and it looks like I will have to make a big order soon 🤦♀️ Pictured all the products I've been using the past few weeks, except for @deciem, I introduced this one in my routine this week. Something clicked in my @glowrecipe mist bottle while I was using it and now the mist is not as fine anymore and the spray resembles a windex grade spray *cries*. Other than that, I'm still not in awe about the Water Cooling Stick by Milk Makeup, I switched back to @elizavecca_ White Bomb Eye Cream. I seem to have no luck with eye cream, stick products. Any recommendations are welcome! 🧡 I'm not sure if I will repurchase any of these products as I want to broaden my horizons and try new things, but I will definitely repurchase the PO Effector by @itsskin_official and the Beauty Cream by @sonandparkofficial, those two are my must haves ♡ Do You have any ideas of what I could get next as replacements? Any Your must haves? 🥰 . . . . #topshelfie#igtopshelfie#skincarecollection#intothegloss#igskincare#skinfirst#skincareobsessed#beautyobsessed#skincaredaily#skincarejunkie#skincareregimen#skincareflatlay#beautyflatlay#beautyfavorites#instaskincare#iloveskincare#glowrecipe
Recently, @freshbeauty gifted me the Peony Brightening Collection and I have been really enjoying both products from the collection. This collection consists of the Peony Brightening Night Treatment Mask + the Peony Instant Brightening Serum. Both the mask and serum are formulated with Peony extract (obviously), vitamin c glucoside, licorice root extract, and hyaluronic acid which, are all meant to correct uneven tone and texture. Licorice root extract in particular is one of my favorite brightening ingredients and is in many of my favorite products that help with evening skin tone and hyperpigmentation. The Instant Brightening Serum is a silky and lightweight cream serum that blends into the skin effortlessly. it gives the skin a boost of brightness, improves the tone and texture of your skin and gives a luminous glow to the skin. The Night Treatment Mask is essentially a sleeping mask (aka a night cream) meant to be used 2-3 times a week. The mask helps repair, protect, and brightens dull skin overnight, while the serum gives your hydration, illumination, and antioxidant benefits during the day (or night) as it can be used twice a day. I’ve enjoyed using the night treatment and serum and have noticed the brightening effects of both. will this drastically lighten your hyperpigmentation? no. Will it dramatically lighten dark spots? no. but, the serum specifically, does give the skin a radiant, healthy, and luminous tone gives the skin an overall brighter appearance. I also love the silky cream texture of the serum and the mask. I can’t say that they’re worth the splurge but, I definitely like having them in my collection and reach for them often
I know that every month I say it’s my favourite @cohorted box yet but they just keep getting better and better! 🌿 The curation of these boxes is always perfection and this month was no different! Inside the December box is a @morphebrushes palette, @agentprovocateur perfume, @argentumapothecary lotion (which on its own costs £84), @jorgobe mask, @nailsinc polish, mini @lancomeofficial mascara, & a @lindoruk chocolate ❤️ A reminder that as always if you use the code “COHORTEDGIFTEDME” you get a free gift with your first box (not an affiliate code) #cohorted#bestboxshot @cohorted *this box was gifted but all opinions are 100% my own.
Hi everyone!! Today is Wednesday and today I will be talking about [JOLSE] MEDIHEAL N.M.F Aquaring Ampoule Mask EX 10ea for $12.78 @cosmetic_jolse @medihealus . . These Mediheal sheet masks are a cult favourite!! It features a silky Cellulose sheet made of 100% pure cotton with Natural Moisturizing Factor (N.M.F) system to provide intense hydration. It contains Hyaluronic Acid & Ceramide to seal in moisture Loaded with Witch Hazel to shrink pores & control sebum. It also fills in fine lines while boosting skin vitality that skin looks softer, smoother, plumper, brighter & soothed. The genuine MEDIHEAL mask sheet shows the MEDIHEAL logo when dried and ready to be removed. . . To use: After cleansing & toning, fit the mask onto face. Leave for 15-20 minutes & remove. Pat the remaining essence into skin. Personally I exfoliate my face before applying on any sheet masks because I feel it will absorb more of the essences then when you don’t exfoliate your skin. . . Honestly this is one of the best sheet masks I had ever used! I never knew why this was such a cult item till I got it! This sheet mask has so much essences to begin with that when I apply on this sheet mask it’s dripping all over my neck and hands LOLOL. I leave it on my face for about 20 mins and relax maybe drinking some Jasmine tea. Then after I still rinse my face off even though they say pat the essence and apply a night serum. Overall when I wake up the next day my skin is so so happy and hydrated!! . . **gifted by [JOLSE] and you can buy this on there site for a amazingly cheap price for $12.78 . . #mediheal#sheetmask#hydration#hylauronicacid#jolse#flatlay#intothegloss#beautyfavourites#cute#skinfavourites#rasianskincare#topshelfie#beautygram#beautyobsessed#abcommunity#skincareflatlay#beautyflatlay#instaskin#instaskincare#365instaskincare#skincarejunkie#beautythread#skincarecommunity#beautycommunity#iloveskincare#beautyinfluencer#skincare#skincareblog#itgtopshelfie
