All Day Vitamin Brightening & Balancing Facial Serum

The only vitamin C serum my skin actually liked

profile

glowandsunshine


Dry/Sensitive

The main ingredient of this serum is sea buckthorn fruit extract, also known as vitamin tree that's rich in vitamin C and antioxidants 🧡 Also contains glycerin, niacinamide, green tea & licorice extract! Further has cica to soothe skin, hyaluronic acid to moisturize, and chamomile extract to control sebum production. The product comes in a pretty 30ml orange glass bottle.✨️ It has a citrusy, slightly sweet scent which I fell in love with! I usually don't like scented products too much but if it involves lavender, bergamot or rosemary I can be convinced otherwise. Although they might be potentially irritating, I have had mostly positive experiences and this one has rosemary extract and bergamot oil as additional ingredients. This serum has a viscous, slightly thick texture that spreads well and leaves a glowy to natural finish on me. Can get greasy fast if you apply too much product! Heat sensation could be briefly felt when using the serum as pure vitamin is being absorbed into the skin. I have only experienced that on the first use though. Update: after finishing the whole bottle I can say it has improved my skin along with a few other products. It looks smoother and doesn't break out too much lately, I also try to improve my gut health so together they work well!

Chestnut AHA 8% Clear Essence

Lovely essence which takes time to see results but works

profile

glowandsunshine


Dry/Sensitive

I have been using this AHA Essence for a few months now. The ingredient list intrigued me and I found it to be a great start into AHAs. This product is the renewed version of the Clear Skin 8% AHA Essence. I slowly incorporated this into my routines and am using it 1-3x per week, depending on my skin's condition. This exfoliating essence contains 4% Glycolic Acid and 4% Lactic Acid to naturally eliminate dead skin cells for a smoother skin texture. I found it to be really good for my sensitive and dry skin because it contains hydrating + soothing ingredients like hyaluronic acid, centella asiatica extract, madecassoside and aloe extract. The texture is very watery, so you need to be a little careful when pumping the product out. It feels watery and slightly oily upon the skin, which helps my dry skin to absorb the essence fast. I also like that it has almost no scent to it! I like to use it like this in the PM: double cleansing my face, applying toner and waiting for it to absorb bc acids can be more potent and irritating if applied on damp skin, then applying this essence and also letting it dry down. After that I use the Cosrx Snails Mucin Essence and a moisturizer (I prefer without any active ingredients or only containing niacinamide in a small dosage to be on the safe side). I found this to be a very good purchase!

Reedle Shot 100

Made my skin tighter after a few weeks

profile

glowandsunshine


Dry/Sensitive

I received this product for free from Yesstyle as a YS Influencer. Reedle Shot 100 is an ampoule that's a little different than other skincare products.🌿 It contains very small molecule active ingredients which makes them penetrate deeper into the skin, giving a slight tingling feeling while rubbing it in. The formula penetrates deeper into the skin’s dermal layer. It further contains cica, madecassoside and hyaluronic acid. There are 3 versions: 100, 300 and 700. I received the one which can be used daily if desired and that's not as strong as the other two. To be sure that my sensitive skin is not overwhelmed, I use it about 3x a week and after getting used to the tiny needle-like feeling, it doesn't bother me anymore. I use it as the first step or sometimes after toner. It has a smooth texture and I use about 2 pumps for my whole face. There's no scent to the product and I haven't had a skin reaction from the first use. I'd advise to use with caution though bc I noticed that my skin was getting red and broke out a little more when trying to use everyday so I stopped using it too frequently. I haven't been using it long enough to see the described effects but I'm hopeful and have noticed that I'm not breaking out too much currently. If it's this product or my retinol, idk 🤷🏻‍♀️ probably both With my rewards code SUNSHINE8 you can get extra 2-5% off your whole Yesstyle purchase 🛒 Update: after using it for longer and about 3x a week, my skin has started looking better with my current products. I believe it's not just this one but all of them working together, so I'm giving this four stars instead of three and would like to try the 300 version too if it's not too expensive

Vita B3 Source

My favourite niacinamide serum! Absolute repurchase for me

profile

glowandsunshine


Dry/Sensitive

A serum with 10% Niacinamide and 2% Arbutin to brighten skin and lighten acne marks. It's made to blur the appearance of dark spots and correct uneven skin tone. The serum comes in a 40ml dark bottle to protect the contents from light. I own two bottles with the old design, the first one I purchased and the other one was won in a giveaway :) It has a watery, lightweight texture and spreads easily. My dry skin absorbs it very well if I am careful not to use too much product, so it's not sticky for me. It also is scentless which I like more than perfumed products Although it's a gentle serum and the percentage is lower than most Niacinamide serums (I often find 15% ones), this one is the most effective for me so far. Way better than the one from The Ordinary for example. That one was way too sticky and dried out my skin more than this one. I can recommend trying this! It has helped with brightening some of my lighter acne marks and hopefully will continue to do so

Green Golden Ruler

One of the best moisturizers all year round!

profile

glowandsunshine


Dry/Sensitive

Hello! Time to review one of my favourite moisturizers so far <3 The Green Golden Ruler is mainly made of matcha water, inca inci oil and probiotics without regular water as its base like many other moisturizers 🌿 It's antioxidant-rich and has a rich, creamy texture. I instantly fell in love after the first use; the first thing you'll notice is the watermelon scent. Although I usually like for my products to have no scent, this one hits different and smells similar to the Water Sleeping Mask from Glow Recipe. The texture is so easy to spread and sinks in instantly without any stickiness on my skin. It might be a little much for oily skin types though Ithelps calm down my skin and didn't cause me any problems in combination with other products and active ingredients! I'm sad that I'm on my last bit of it after it has lasted me a few months; you don't need a lot each use but it still finishes fast if used 2x a day and sometimes layering it. I can wholeheartedly recommend this for dry and sensitive skin types, it might work well for combination skin too as it is rich yet not greasy and absorbs well if you have dry skin/dry patches

Madagascar Centella Hyalu-Cica Water-Fit Sun Serum SPF50+ PA++++

No.1 sunscreen so far and can recommend it to all skin types

profile

glowandsunshine


Dry/Sensitive

I received this product for free from Picky and SKIN1004 in exchange for my honest review. A non-nano chemical sunscreen that blocks UV rays, while simultaneously hydrating the skin. The product comes in a practical 50ml tube and a small pump to disperse the amount evenly. I actually really like it a lot! It has an ulta lightweight and almost watery texture which makes spreading it so easy. Reapplication is no problem at all and it doesn't leave a whitecast on me at all. Also absorbs fast into my skin 💧 It is scentless, so no problems on this side either. No reactions on my sensitive and dry skin at all, it loves this sun serum and I can wholeheartedly recommend to try! I can see all skin types liking this one as it is not heavy at all for oily skin and doesn't dry out which would be problematic for drier skin types. I love this sun serum so much, it's my favourite Spf so far! Would definitely recommend and repurchase 🤍 Even my octopus plushie has laid claim to it ☀️ Update: I was very lucky and won this in the most recent Skin1004 giveaway and am absolutely still loving it 🫶🏼✨️
