My PMS routine faves

Hi! As a hormonal acne girly, PMS is the bane of my existence. My skin gets sensitive and dry. Actives like exfoliating acides, retinol, and even vitamin c can cause irritation to my skin. Hence, you can imaging keeping a clear skin can be a pain during these times. So during my PMS, I stick to products that are centered around hydrating, soothing, and calming ingredients.

Rice Toner

This one lived up to its hype and more! Can definitely see why this is a cult-fave amongst the skincare community. It didn't just soothe and hydrate my skin, but also helped in repairing skin barries. Great product, 10/10, would recommend ๐Ÿ‘Œ

This toner is definitely a cult favorite and when I tried it, it lived up to its hype. This was my saving grace when I first tried retinol (along w/ Illiyoon Ato Ceramide Cream). It's great for hydrating and moisturizing the skin. Also, it doesn't clog my pores and jas helped me when my skin was breaking out.

So far, I've only been using this for 2 weeks. I haven't had any strong reactions or irritation with this product. It's a cleanser that lathers well and not overly stripping to the skin but still gives that clean feeling. The texture is on the thick side. It's only been 2 weeks, but I can say that I actually really enjoyed using this cleanser.

Green Tea Fresh Toner

My fave, my holy grail, my 2nd,3rd, 4th, and counting buy. This toner doesn't really need an introductionnas it is a fave! When I say this is a life saver during the hard and hormonal times that is PMS, I mean it with my whole heart and soul โœŠ

๐Ÿ“Œ Texture: - This toner has a watery texture that runs down my hands quickly if I'm not careful. It also has a lightweight texture to it that my oily skin just really appreciates. It also has a brown color to it. ๐Ÿ“ŒFragrance: - Just by the smell, I knew that green tea was a major component here. This toner has a potent fermented green tea smell that, funny enough, I actually fims soothing. However, if you're sensitive to bitter smells, then you may not like this toner. ๐Ÿ“Œ What I liked: - I definitely liked that it kept my sebum production in check. My T-zone is a lot less oily than it used to be. It's not really hydrating per se but it didn't aggravate or irritated my skin. It was also soothing.

Vita B3 Source

The only niacinamide serum I trust during my PMS. Since my routine during this time centers on hydration and calming, this is the only product Intrust for brightening and it hasn't failed me yet ๐Ÿ‘Œ

๐Ÿ’ฆ Texture & Consistency - For the texture, this product has a clear, watery texture that quickly absorbs into the skin. There's no stickiness or greasiness with this product as well. ๐Ÿ’ญ My thoughts: - So this serum has been on my wishlist for such a long time now, especially since I've seen a lot of people raving about this, and I wanted to see what the hype was about. So this serum is packed with superstar brightening ingredients like Niacinamide (10%) and Alpha Arbutin (2%). This product has 10% Niacinamide which might be a little too much with people with sensitive skin. As for me, since I've used Niacinamide before, there was really no bad effects. I've only been using this for less than a month but I'm already seeing some difference with my skin. My dark spots are starting to fade and my skin has brightened a lot. I've also noticed my breakouts have bee lesser this month compared to last month.

๐Ÿ” Product Description : - This is a soothing essence made with only one ingredient: โœจMugwort Extractโœจ. - The refreshing fluid formula adheres and absorbs into the skin to soothe sensitive skin and recharge moisture from within. ๐Ÿ’ฆ Texture: - So this essence has a runny/watery consistency that dries fairly quickly. It glides really easily onto the skin and has a light weight texture to it. Lastly, it gives a refreshing and hydrating feeling to it when it dries. ๐Ÿ’Fragrance: - This product has a slight earthy and herbal scent to it that I guess is from the Mugwort. Though the smell does disappear knce applied to the face. ๐Ÿ“Œ Thoughts and Experience: - Okay so the first time I used it, I instany fell in love with this product. First of all, I love how this products gives a smooth and plumpy finish to my skin which is such a great product to use in the morning. I also really like to use this before my primer and sunscreen whenever I go out since my skin looks so much better with it. - Also, with just one ingredient, this has been such a game changer for me. After a while, I've been noticing my face looking brighter. And when my hormonal acne acts up, the mugwort essence is a life saver in calming my skin. All in all, I really have nothing bad to say about this. Ratings: โญโญโญโญโญโญ/5 This is definitely a holy grail for me. I'm already saving up once I empty my bottle. This was given as PR but I honestly think it would be worth my every penny if I buy this.
