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.
730 Daily Moisture Cream
Good for morning or night. Doesn't clog my pores. It's very gentle so this is a fave and a must-have during PMS
𝗜𝗻𝗴𝗿𝗲𝗱𝗶𝗲𝗻𝘁𝘀 : Water, Caprylic/Capric Triglyceride, Glycerin, Squalane, Glyceryl Stearate, Polyglyceryl-2 Stearate, 1,2-Hexanediol, Stearyl Alcohol, Carbomer, Arginine, Caprylyl Glycol. 𝗣𝗿𝗼𝗱𝘂𝗰𝘁 𝗖𝗹𝗮𝗶𝗺 : An intensive moisturizing daily cream for anyone, anywhere, anytime, any condition without skin irritation. 𝗣𝗮𝗰𝗸𝗮𝗴𝗶𝗻𝗴/𝗦𝗰𝗲𝗻𝘁 : It comes in a 50ml tube. Doesn't contain any scent. 𝗧𝗲𝘅𝘁𝘂𝗿𝗲 : It has creamy texture which I love so much. 𝗘𝘅𝗽𝗲𝗿𝗶𝗲𝗻𝗰𝗲 : Okay, I'm obsessed with this moisturizer. I love the texture. It spreads so smoothly on my skin. Doesn't feel greasy. I use it in my PM routine and sometimes in my AM routine too. I love that it has just 11 ingredients which are skin friendly. My skin feels so great after using it whenever my skin is overwhelmed. 𝗥𝗲𝗰𝗼𝗺𝗺𝗲𝗻𝗱? 1000% recommend it. It is great for all skin types. Do try it if you get the chance.
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 👌
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.
Gentle Black Facial Cleanser
The only gentle cleanser my skin could tolerate during my PMS which is why I think it's worthit depsite the price ☝️
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 ✊
📌 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. 📌Fragrance: - 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. 📌 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.
Hyaluronic Acid Daily Sun Gel SPF30 PA+++
The only sunscreen my skin could tolerate. This has my stamp of approval. A bit too expensive for me but def worth it.
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 👌
💦 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. 💭 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.
Another fave and absolutely must have for me. If I were to choose just one product to use, this would be it - my ride or die product 💗
🔍 Product Description : - This is a soothing essence made with only one ingredient: ✨Mugwort Extract✨. - The refreshing fluid formula adheres and absorbs into the skin to soothe sensitive skin and recharge moisture from within. 💦 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. 💐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. 📌 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: ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐/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.
