Dry/Sensitive

I received this product for free from Picky and The Potions in exchange for my honest review. This was my first time using a peptide product and with a little research I learned that you can pair peptides with basically any ingredient. Thanks to the Hydration Trio I received from Picky x The Potions I am using this together with the Hyaluronic Acid Ampoule and the Jojoba Oil. It has a light, watery texture and is scentless👍🏻 The light coppery color of the product kinda really attracts me but I can't explain why though😅 It goes on smoothly after the Hyaluronic Acid Ampoule and I hope I will see its effects one day! So far, I have only good things to say, especially because my sensitive skin didn't react to it whoop

Dry/Sensitive

I received this product for free from Picky and Commonlabs in exchange for my honest review. First off, I am in love with the bottle and how the product looks! The deep green color is very attractive and the bottle looks so big for 30ml. This was the first product I have tried from The Commonlabs and so far, I like it. Application is easy and and you can add the ampoule into your routine very easily. I have mostly paired it with hyaluronic acid and moisturizer. I'm very glad my skin didn't react negatively at the first try because it can be quite sensitive and picky when it comes to ingredients. UPDATE: I am finished with the bottle and it is a very nice addition to my skincare routine! I didn't experience anything negative and it has helped me with my irritated skin! I wasn't expecting much but this paired with my Centella Ampoule from Skin1004 are really nice <3

Hyaluronic Acid Watery Sun Gel SPF50+ PA++++

Had the luck to try this cult-favourite myself and it didn't disappoint

Dry/Sensitive

I received this product for free from Picky and Isntree in exchange for my honest review. This is a watery sun gel that contains eight types of hyaluronic acids in different molecular weights to replenish moisture💧 Also contains ceramide to strengthen skin barrier, and centella asiatica extract to soothe the skin.  Another Spf in the typical 50ml tube ^^ I really like the small nozzle to get out the desired amout of product! The white texture blends well with my fair skin and spreads very well. It's more lightweight than the Sun Cream and I feel like this one protects me better from UV rays! Doesn't leave a whitecast on me and feels good, I can see why so many people like this one! This one, like the Isntree Sun Cream, has almost no scent to it at all which I love! Better this than a too powerful sunscreen or flowery scent. I can wholeheartedly recommend trying this, especially my fellow dry skin folks 💙

Yam Root Vegan Milk Cleanser

So grateful for this isntree cleanser to help whenever my skin wasn't up for double cleansing

Dry/Sensitive

I received this product from Picky and Isntree in exchange for my honest review. This vegan and cruelty-free milk cleanser gently removes sunscreen and makeup while maintaining the skin’s hydration level. Yam Root extract is rich in amino acids that soothe skin and form a protective barrier to lock in moisture. Plant-based extracts including coconut fruit, rice, soybean, sweet almond seed and oatmeal nourish skin to reveal a healthy appearance ✨️ I had never used a milk cleanser before, so this was a new experience. You apply a moderate amount of the cleansing milk onto dry skin and massage it in for a while, then with wet hands you emulsify it like you would a cleansing oil or balm and wash it off. It is made as a single cleanser, being cleansing oil/balm and water-based cleanser in one. It has a white, milky texture and smells subtly like yam root. The bottle is also quite generous with 220ml. Though I love my double cleansing method, this is such a nice addition for days where my skin doesn't tolerate too much rubbing or products. It cleanses very well and my sensitive skin hasn't reacted to the cleansing milk negatively. I'd re-purchase this product!

Sun Project Silky Calming Sun Stick SPF50+ PA++++

My favourite sun stick so far! Lightweight, no whitecast and no irritations

Dry/Sensitive

I received this product for free from Picky and Thank You Farmer in exchange for my honest review. This is a non-greasy sun stick formulated with Centella Asiatica and Madecassoside which help soothe and protect irritated skin. I found this stick to be a good fit for my sensitive skin and thankfully didn't react to it. It glides onto my skin smoothly and has only got a subtle scent to it which I found almost non-existent. The texture might need a little getting used to because after application is feels kinda powdery and thus doesn't leave a greasy or dewy finish. What I liked best is that it doesn't smudge my blush and highlighter so far! They transfer to the stick a little but that was expected; the Benton Mineral Sun Stick is like that too so I wasn't surprised about that. (I like this one a little more than the Benton stick) All in all a decent product I can recommend to try, although I am not sure if all skin types might like this one because of the powdery feel and finish. I have no problems so far and will update again after using it some more

I have received this product for free from Picky and Thank You Farmer in exchange for my honest review. A plant-based, chemical sunscreen that offers Spf50+ sun protection, containing Centella Asiatica as an ingredient to soothe skin. Infused with patented 8-Relief Complex and Centella Asiatica to soothe and protect the skin. Non-Comedogenic and vegan formula. It's got a smooth cream texture that's easy to spread and leaves no whitecast on my fair skin tone. I have found it to be suitable for sensitive skin. Sinks in fast and the finish is not a glowy one. The product doesn't contain added fragrance, though the scent may vary because of its natural-derived ingredients. I could see all skin types liking this sunscreen, more so dry skin. The product paper package was made from recycled paper produced by sustainable forest management.

Midnight Blue Calming Cream

Not my fav moisturizer but it was really nice to try

Dry/Sensitive

I received this product for free by Picky and Dear, Klairs in exchange for my honest review. Dear, Klairs is a Korean skincare brand known for seeking out ingredients and raw materials best suited for sensitive skin. This is a moisturizer that helps to calm and strengthen the skin barrier of sensitive, irritated and dry skin. It works fast to soothe and regulate irritated, stressed skin e.g. after a sunburn etc.💧 Comes in a 30ml jar (or tube if you're getting the bigger size) and its own little spatula. I had been eyeing this for a long time but never purchased it because of its price. The cream has a beautiful blue color from the Guaiazulene and a slightly-thick and lightweight texture. It also contains centella asiatica extract, another powerful soothing ingredient. Applies velvety-smooth and sinks in fast. It blends into my skin very well and leaves a natural, colorless finish without feeling tacky or looking greasy (+ no pilling under my sunscreen!) 💙 I'm using a small amount, one full spoon of the delivered spatula, and it's enough for absorbing well into my skin and if I need more I re-apply a second layer as desired. Guaiazulene is a chamomile extract that has anti-inflammatory properties and can help soothe & repair damaged skin and I can see why! 💙✨️ Another plus is that it's fragrance-free and thus suitable for the most sensitive skin types and noses. I can recommend giving this a try Update: It started stinging on a compromised skin barrier, so I didn't experience its soothing effects whenever I had days like that..

Hyaluronic Acid Ampoule

One of my favourite hyaluronic acid serums out there. Wish the brand was better accessible though

Dry/Sensitive

I received this product for free from Picky and The Potions in exchange for my honest review. This is honestly such a nice hyaluronic acid ampoule, it has a watery runny consistency and a little goes a long way! Personally, I like hyaluronic acid serums more on the watery side than thick. This is the first serum/ampoule I use after washing my face (or after toner whenever I do use one) and then I follow up with other products e.g. the brands' Peptide Serum and Jojoba Oil. The Potions Hyaluronic Acid didn't cause me any problems and I love it so far! Especially because I'm a big fan of hyaluronic acid in general, so it didn't take much to make me like this <3

Madagascar Centella Probio-Cica Intensive Ampoule

Current favourite product of mine in winter❄️

profile

Dry/Sensitive

I have received this product for free from Picky and Skin1004 in exchange for my honest review. Loving the short ingredient list: Lactobacillus/Centella Asiatica Extract Ferment Filtrate, Centella Asiatica Extract, Ceramide NP, TECA, Polyhydroxystearic Acid, Betaine, Allantoin, Panthenol. The ampoule comes in a 50ml glass bottle and with a dropper. It is on the smaller side compared to the other all-known Skin1004 ampoules that are 150ml in size. This one has a thicker texture than the watery ones and absorbs just as well. My dry skin likes it and I can see myself using it in all seasons of the year. My skin loves it especially during fall and winter and I would definitely repurchase! The Intensive Ampoule gives the skin moisture to keep it hydrated and provides a silky finish without any greasiness. I also like that it's scentless! I think all skin types could enjoy it, moreso dry and sensitive skin types.

Loved the unique texture and how it works well for my dry skin🤍

Dry/Sensitive

I have received this product for free from Picky and Skin1004 in exchange for my honest review. Key ingredients: Fermented centella asiatica, cica ceramide, phytosterols, fatty acids, macadamia seed oil, drumstick seed oil. I like that it has no scent. Does not contain any artificial fragrances or colors and is safe to use on all skin types including sensitive skin. The texture is thicker and hydrating and it absorbs well if you use only a little amount. I'm not too sure if I'd be able to use it in every season though. I would recommend it more to dry skin types as it might be too heavy for oily skin.
