Top 5 skincare products that I rated 5โญ on Picky

I have a couple of reviews on this app which I gave 5-stars. It's not that I have really high standards but when I give a perfect score, rest assured it's something that I really love, and that I genuinely promote. So here's my top five 5-star self rated products which I'm proud to share. How about you, what are your top 5? I bet it's hard to choose especially if you've been in the skincare world for long, and that you've already have so much experiences with different brands. I myself have only been in this community for 2 years. I'm interested to know your choices too๐Ÿ˜Š

Guava 70 Skin Toner Pad

I never expected that this product would be the one that would cure my eczema because I was just experimenting! I saw improvements on the affected area right away after 3 consecutive days of putting guava pads on it for at least 10 mins per day. And believe it or not, my eczema was cured in less than two weeks, and my skin was restored to its normal state like nothing happened. Wish I had had taken before and after photos to prove this but I didn't even want to look at the affected area before because it makes me so insecure, let alone take a picture of it.

๐Ÿ–๏ธ๐‘ช๐‘ณ๐‘จ๐‘ฐ๐‘ด๐‘บ. A soothing pack pad that contains abundant guava extract azulene, panthenol, and small molecule hyaluronic acid provides deep moisturizing and soothing to the skin. The formula is gentle and is suitable for all skin types. ๐Ÿค๐‘ท๐‘จ๐‘ช๐‘ฒ๐‘จ๐‘ฎ๐‘ฐ๐‘ต๐‘ฎ. Comes in a white plastic jar which contains 70 pads, and a tong to conveniently take out a sheet. ๐Ÿค๐‘ฒ๐‘ฌ๐’€ ๐‘ฐ๐‘ต๐‘ฎ๐‘น๐‘ฌ๐‘ซ๐‘ฐ๐‘ฌ๐‘ต๐‘ป. Guava Extract (specifically, as what I've read from a source, 70% Jeju Guava Leaf Extract๐Ÿƒ), which is rich in antioxidants, vitamins, and minerals that boost hydration, collagen synthesis, skin elasticity, and brightens skin tone. ๐Ÿค๐‘บ๐‘ช๐‘ฌ๐‘ต๐‘ป & ๐‘ป๐‘ฌ๐‘ฟ๐‘ป๐‘ผ๐‘น๐‘ฌ. The pads are very soaked, they can drip a bit when you take them out of the jar. They are very soft and thin, similar to those sheet masks products. It feels very cool on the skin and as a very mild scent. It doesn't smell like guava like I expected tho. ๐Ÿค๐‘ฌ๐‘ฟ๐‘ท๐‘ฌ๐‘น๐‘ฐ๐‘ฌ๐‘ต๐‘ช๐‘ฌ. I wash my face and pat dry. Then I put 3 pads on my face: one on each cheek and one on the forehead. I smooth out the pads and pat the remaining essence and leave them for 10-15mins to absorb. (I usually do this in the evening so I have plenty of time.) My skin feels very hydrated and plump. There's no stinging sensations, irritation, tightness, or whatsoever skin discomfort. It gives a luminous finish after using, giving the "glass skin" vibes.โœจ ๐Ÿค”Although I usually prefer using toners or any skincare products that don't need cotton balls/pads/sheets etc., for the sake of the environment, still adding this to my faves.โ™ก

Aloe BHA Skin Toner

I am very picky when it comes to toners but this one is one of my three fave toners of all time! I even used to skip toner during my early days of doing skincare.

๐Ÿ–๏ธ๐‘ช๐‘ณ๐‘จ๐‘ฐ๐‘ด๐‘บ. Contains Aloe, BHA, Cynanchum Atratum, and Hyaluronic Acid to help moisturize, calm and manage a smooth skin texture by using it on the skin every day. It is a pH-balanced daily product. ๐Ÿ€๐‘ท๐‘จ๐‘ช๐‘ฒ๐‘จ๐‘ฎ๐‘ฐ๐‘ต๐‘ฎ. Simple and clean design. Easy to see the content due to its transparent bottle. Easy to dispense content, just tilt the bottle and pour onto palm in a slightly shaking motion. ๐Ÿ€๐‘ฒ๐‘ฌ๐’€ ๐‘ฐ๐‘ต๐‘ฎ๐‘น๐‘ฌ๐‘ซ๐‘ฐ๐‘ฌ๐‘ต๐‘ป๐‘บ. โ€ขAloe Vera - for soothing and moisturing. I guess we all are aware of the goodness and benefits of the aloe plant in so many aspects. โ€ขBHA (Salicylic Acid) - for reducing sebum and acne control. Also contains anti-inflammatory, and anti-bacterial properties. Great for exfoliating. ๐Ÿ€๐‘บ๐‘ช๐‘ฌ๐‘ต๐‘ป & ๐‘ป๐‘ฌ๐‘ฟ๐‘ป๐‘ผ๐‘น๐‘ฌ. Scent-free! Clear as water but a little thick-ish than that. Absorbs easily, and doesn't leave a sticky feeling. ๐Ÿ€๐‘ฌ๐‘ฟ๐‘ท๐‘ฌ๐‘น๐‘ฐ๐‘ฌ๐‘ต๐‘ช๐‘ฌ. After cleansing, I pour an adequate amount on my palm and directly apply on my face and neck. One of the things I like about it is that I can use it without a cotton pad/ball. It doesn't leave my skin feeling dry and tight but also not oily or greasy. My skin feels fresh, plump, and ready for the next skincare step! I use it on my day and night routine. I've been using it for more than 2 weeks now. โœ“Vegan-certifed (The Vegan Society) โœ“Cruelty-free โœ“Alcohol-free โœ“Essential oil-free โœ“Paraben-free

๐Ÿ’ฆ๐‘ท๐‘จ๐‘ช๐‘ฒ๐‘จ๐‘ฎ๐‘ฐ๐‘ต๐‘ฎ. I don't like throwing away the box because the design is just so pretty and looks so refreshing๐Ÿ˜ It's my first time to use a product with such bottle. It is tube-like but comes with a pump dispenser and a cover. ๐Ÿ’ฆ ๐‘บ๐‘ช๐‘ฌ๐‘ต๐‘ป. Has a certain mild fragrance. But if you're like me who prefer fragrance-free skincare products, this is still a safe choice. ๐Ÿ’ฆ ๐‘ป๐‘ฌ๐‘ฟ๐‘ป๐‘ผ๐‘น๐‘ฌ. It's more runny or watery compared to most sunscreens (well, the name itself is water fit sun serum) so, its texture is really serum-like. The ๐ฆ๐จ๐ฌ๐ญ ๐ฅ๐ข๐ ๐ก๐ญ๐ฐ๐ž๐ข๐ ๐ก๐ญ ๐ฌ๐ฎ๐ง๐ฌ๐œ๐ซ๐ž๐ž๐ง I've ever tried. Doesn't leave white cast or show white cast when sweating. Perfect to use for summer๐Ÿ‘Œ ๐Ÿ’ฆ ๐‘ฌ๐‘ฟ๐‘ท๐‘ฌ๐‘น๐‘ฐ๐‘ฌ๐‘ต๐‘ช๐‘ฌ. I abandoned my other sunscreens and this is the one I'm using everyday. This is the sunscreen that I need the most especially that it's scorching hot in my country right now๐Ÿฅต Two pumps would be enough for my entire face, ears, and neck. It's not sticky and doesn't dry out my skin. It also feels hydrating. I don't even put on moisturizer before applying this sunscreen especially when I'm in a hurry or just simply lazy. It immediately gives a 'glass skin' effect. Overall, it's included in my top 3 fave sunscreens. I give this 4.9โญ out of 5.

I like that the bottle design is simple yet it has a classy and elegant appeal. Very handy, easy to use, and seems to be made of high quality material. It comes with a pump and a cover so I have no problems of droppings and I could easily carry/bring it everywhere I go. โญ๐‘บ๐‘ด๐‘ฌ๐‘ณ๐‘ณ & ๐‘ป๐‘ฌ๐‘ฟ๐‘ป๐‘ผ๐‘น๐‘ฌ. Has a mild scent that reminds me of 'Biko' (a popular sweet delicacy in the Philippinesโ™ก). It's a clear gel-type serum which is not sticky and doesn't have lumps. It feels cool on the skin. โญ๐‘ฌ๐‘ฟ๐‘ท๐‘ฌ๐‘น๐‘ฐ๐‘ฌ๐‘ต๐‘ช๐‘ฌ. Been using this for two weeks now. I apply this after my toner, both in my AM and PM routine. Sometimes, I only use this once (either AM or PM) because I'm also testing other products as well. Just two pumps and its enough for my entire face and neck. It's easily absorbed, very lightweight, and I don't feel any skin tightening, irritations, or stinging sensations. So far, I haven't seen obvious results or changes in my skin but I also have nothing bad to say about this product so I'm giving it 5โญ out of 5!

โœ”๏ธvery lightweight, maybe a bit watery for some people but for me I like it the way it is. Literally the MOST lightweight sun cream I've ever tried, it's like I didn't put anything on my face at all! โœ”๏ธvery easy to blend, doesn't leave a white cast โœ”๏ธhas a light sweet candy smell. Although I usually prefer fragrance-free products, it's fine with me. โœ”๏ธdoesn't make my face sweaty unlike most sunscreens do on my face and it doesn't irritate my skin at all. โœ”๏ธJust the best sun cream for me so far. It's not sticky or greasy, nice packaging it's simple but elegant-looking, bottle is very handy it can fit my small purse, and it's 100% vegan.
