The only thing that works best for me after using chemical exfoliants to repair the skin is facial oil. I have always been an self proclaimed oil junkie and use multiple oils in rotation. Currently @beautybio The Radiance Brightening Oil is the one in use. I have had this oil for a while now. It is a lightweight, fast-absorbing layerable facial oil that conatins Vitamin E to help soothe inflammation, Rose Hip Seed oil to brighten,, Ginger root extract to improve skin structure and promote circulation. . . The clear oil is very light weight, absorbs quickly and does not feels heavy at all. It is very much like a dry oil, but is not a dry oil. It mositurizes the skin, nourishes it and makes it look dewy and healthy. Exfoliating products are nototriously famous to cause dryness and using this oil after that helps combat the drying issue and makes the skin supple, soft and smooth. I also use it during the day, hours before applying makeup. Preps the skin for flawless application of base products. A very versatile oil with simple ingredients. As I review products, I tend to accumulate a lot of skincare very quickly. A good way to use up some oils is applying a generous amount on the neck and back of the hands. Early signs of aging are seen more on the neck and back of the hands. The oils really work wonderfully over a period of time with consistent use. My rough, gardener hands look much better now. Overnight use of oils is better than any hand cream for my hands. . . Do you love using facial oils? Which is your favorite one :) Swipe next to see the failed texture/color shot 😄 . . *gifted #beautybioIRL #beautybio #dazzlensparkle #facialoil #texturetuesday
@alphahskincare Liquid Gold, a product that will make your skin glow like a bar of GOLD!! Too dramatic introduction? 😆😆 . . ALPHA-H Liquid Gold* is an overnight resurfacing treatment, more like part peel and part moisturiser works like an ‘overnight facial’. It contains 5% Glycolic Acid, which is technically present in other toners too, but the real difference is the low pH system used to deliver Glycolic Acid to the skin. It supports natural skin cell renewal, removes unwanted dead skin cells, and supports collagen, elastin, and hyaluronic acid in the skin. Also, the Licorice Extract helps Brighten the complexion by reducing dark spots and pigmentation, one of my major concerns. . . I used this watery liquid religiously as a part of my PM skincare routine after cleansing as recommended on alternate days, skipping few days here and there as the skin needed. There was mild tingling, that barely lasted for few minutes on initial days and later on as I got used to the product, I hardly noticed. There was no redness or itching. The skin didn't feel dry either. The results were noticeable, with just two uses. My skin felt smooth, really smooth and the best thing is these results lasted well. The difference in skintone and skin texture was obvious! Also, the product did not stopped working after few days. Some acid based products do that. They start performing with a bang and then just like that one fine morning they just lose their charm. This product is just fabulous! I cannot believe how gentle yet effective it is! A big thumbs up! . *gifted . Have you tried this product before? Or any other product from the brand? This product is also cruelty-free and comes in recyclable packaging. . . #alphaholics #dazzlensparkle #exfoliant #resurfacingpeel #alphah
#Sulwhasoogiftedme @sulwhasoo.us Perfecting Cushion Intense and it took me a few applications to actually figure out using a cushion foundation. This is my first time ever trying anything like this. The applicator picks decent amount of product and the pressing and stamping (I believe that is what it is called) spreads it easily. The product does not feel heavy on the skin. Layers well with other products too. Coverage is really good. It is neither too matte nor too greasy. It leaves an even, silky smooth layer (almost too smooth to be true). Longevity is pretty good. Stayed without breaking on my dry but well prepped skin for 6 plus hours. The color I chose is no.25 and it is supposed to have yellow undertones. The color is too light for my extra tan skin but i think it will work better once I lose that tan. . . The compact is lovely, chic, snaps shut and has a mirror making it very easy to travel with. Cushion Foundations are convenient but I am more of a traditional foundation person. I miss the brush n sponge blending. Also I think traditional liquid or powder foundations can be adjusted a shade up or down but with cushion foundations an exact match is needed for flawless looking skin. . . This is my first experience with cushion foundations and honestly I am not so sure if I like it or not. Maybe as I try and use a few more brands, I will get better in using it to its full potential and probably have something similar to compare. For now, I will stick to what I know the best. . . #OctolyFamily #sulwhasoo #dazzlensparkle . Available https://www.octoly.com/c/hbtcj/r/hb42v . . What are your thoughts on Cushion Foundation?

#Lancomegiftedme @LancomeOfficial UV Expert SPF 50 Moisturizer + Primer and it came at the best possibe time! I could take it to my trip last week and got to test it. . . This is an all-in-one, oil-free face primer and moisturizer with SPF 50. The white colored, light weight, gel like fluid sunscreen is non sticky and spreads easily, absorbs quickly and blends into the skin like water without being heavy or greasy. The sunscreen disappears without leaving any white/grey cast nor any shiny residue. . . Denatured alcohol is amomg the first three ingredients and even though this ingredient is notorously drying on the skin, the sunscreen surprisingly is pretty moisturizing. It contains antioxidant-rich Vitamin E, Moringa and Edelweiss. As a primer it layered well under makeup and there was no piling. I didn't notice any major difference when it comes to longevity of based products. I wore it pretty much the whole day and even topped it with other sunscreen while I was at the beach. Once the bright, hot sun hits the face, I get paranoid and all I worry about is my hyperpigmentation flaring up. I just layer and layer more sunscreen. The light weight texture of sunscreen I use currently encourages me to layer these together. It has a lovely floral fragrance and this scent is anyday better than the very obvious sunscreen scent. Also, it didn't look weird in photos. There are many pics that can prove this. I promise :) A good product worth trying. . . #OctolyFamily #dazzlensparkle #sunscreen #lancome ....

@henneorganics Lip Products have been heavily used in rotation and I can confidently say these are one of the best everyday lipcare products I have tried in recent months. . . Already have reviewed the lip serum a few posts back and just like that one, the lip balm is winner too. The rich, creamy balm is enriched with Avocado, Coconut, Jojoba oils, Cacao and Shea butters and Beeswax. These nourishing and repairing ingredients leave the lips velvety soft and smooth. They are easy to layer over the lip serum without feeling heavy. There is no waxy feeling. The lips feel supple and healthy. . . The lip tint too has the same rich qualities of the lip balm and leaves a lovely tint on the lips. The black, chic, glossy packaging makes it look as luxurious as it performs. . . *gifted . . #henneorganics #lipserum #organicskincareproducts #dazzlensparkle #lipbalms #skincareroutines
