* I received this product for free from Skinceuticals* Firstly the packaging feels very luxe and it's pretty heavy. You definitely do not want to accidentally drop this from a height. The product itself is made with a ratio of 2% Ceramides, 4% Cholesterol and 2% Fatty Acids to provide a nourishing cocktail for your skin. It's rich and nourishing which I appreciate as I have dry skin. I like to use this with Tretinoin to really provide a soothing barrier for my skin and combat the dryness which comes with using prescription strength skincare.

I received this product free from Picky and Skin1004 in exchange for a review. The focus of this product is to nourish dry and damaged skin by protecting the skin's moisture barrier. It's formulated with oils such as macadamia seed oil, Centella Asiatica Ferment Filtrate and Moringa Oleifera Seed Oil. The product comes in a 50ml plastic jar with plastic sealant to protect the cream inside. I really like the spatula the product comes with, as I enjoy using the rounded end under my eyes with other products I own. The product itself is hydrating, stringy and nourishing. I like using this product after Tretinoin as to minimize the irritation caused from using strong active ingredients. I find it absorbs well into the skin and also feels comfortable.

Artemisia Balance Essence

Super watery and lightweight.

I really enjoy using this product. It's very watery meaning that it absorbs easily into the skin and you can even apply multiple layers if your skin calls for it. I actually use this product as a toner because it's the perfect first step of your skincare routine. It can be used day and night as well. It's very soothing thanks to its ingredients, and it's perfect for pairing with other skincare products since it absorbs very fast into the skin. The bottle itself is slim, sleek and smooth.

Mango Balm Dotcom

Can't forget the lip balm!

This balm is marketed as a "universal salve", meaning that you can apply it on the hands, body, lips and any other dry patches you might get. I use this balm primarily as a lip balm as I think it's very moisturizing. There's a very pronounced mango scent which doesn't smell too artificial, which I enjoy. The tube packaging makes it easier to dispense the product directly on the lips if you're out and it applies clear on the lips. Lipsticks can be applied after this balm, without making the lipstick look oily or greasy on the lips.

Anthelios Invisible Fluid Facial Sunscreen SPF 50+

The higher the SPF the better ☀️

I love how this sunscreen leaves no white cast which is very important to me as a person of color. It absorbs nicely within 10-15 minutes and isn't overly shiny on heavy on the skin. It generally works well under makeup as well. I really appreciate the compact packaging and how portable this product is, as I also take it with me in my handbag. It doesn't have a fragrance and also doesn't sting my eyes.

Jojoba Oil Serum

Perfect for locking moisture in.

*I received this product in exchange for a review from Picky* This is a very lightweight oil perfect for those with dry skin, or just dry patches on the face and body. You don't need too much product for the face and provides enough slip to use a Gua Sha. This product is formulated with just one ingredient so it's perfect for those with sensitive skin. It does feel a little greasy if you apply too much so I would recommend 1-3 drops for the face.

A thick lip balm perfect for night.

This is a very affordable drugstore lip balm from Nivea. It's nice and thick, so it's perfect for colder days, or using before bed. There's a fragrance of blueberries which is nice and not too artificial smelling. I like applying multiple layers and it doesn't leave your lips looking greasy or shiny.

An affordable dupe of SKII! Soothing and watery.

I picked this up from a Walmart here in Canada as I could instantly tell it's supposed to be a dupe for the SK-II Treatment Essence. I loooove the packaging. It feels so luxurious and expensive. The product itself is light, watery and absorbs so quickly into the skin. Because of its texture I bet you could use this as a toner. My skin feels hydrated, supple and I enjoy the fact that there's a generous amount of product.

Mugwort Sheet Mask

I like to apply this before Tret to ease any irritation.

This is such a soothing mask. It's made with Artemisia Princeps Extract (94%) for a cooling and soothing effect. I like applying this mask for 10-15 minutes and then using the leftover serum on my neck, arms and chest.
