Hyaluronic Acid Intensive Cream

Aging can reduce how much hyaluronic acid your skin produces, and harsh cleansers can strip the skin of moisture. Cosrx is my go to because ithydrates your skin’s natural moisture content while sealing it in without the heavy and sticky feeling of other moisturizers and oils!

Niacinamide 10% + Zinc 1%

Ok, so technically I think this is a Canadian brand but you can find it in several k-beauty stores so it’s going on my list bc of how quality is it. This serum covers all the signs of skin aging by hydrating and locking in users’ skin barrier, smoothing textural irregularities, and brightening dull spots. While it’s designed for all skin types, this serum is particularly beneficial for those undergoing doctor-prescribed acne treatments as it reinforces your natural skin moisture.

🐚 Main ingredients: 10% Niacinamide, 1% Zinc 🐚 Texture: it’s a bit sticky, but spreads well 🐚 Price: €9.90 for 30ml at Sephora, even less on other websites 🐚 Use: 1-2 times a day 🐚 My experience: I’ve used it every morning since December and it has really made a change! This was the product that regulated my sebum production, now I’m not oily anymore. It has also faded my acne marks, minimizes my pores and it leaves the skin really smooth. I want to try other serums with niacinamide, but I know I can always go back to this! Update: this was a 5/5 up until last month, when I started using the Tiam B3 one, that I will review soon. Compared to that one, this becomes a 4/5 since they are not on the same level, but the Ordinary one is still a really good option especially for oily skin!

Pure Vitamin C Serum

My go to to address and treat the appearance of wrinkles, sun-damaged skin, dark spots, and dull skin caused by external factors. Because of its effectiveness against the sun, vitamin C products are best used for daytime routines and followed by sunscreen!

After asking Picky for Vitamin C serum recommendation, I picked this one because it is the most recommended one. I bought this online for 650 pesos (approx. 13 USD) on Shopee Ph. This one's a bit budget friendly for a student like me. After using it for a week, here is my review. Might edit this weekly for two months to see the real result. How I use it: The consistency is like any other serum which is a bit runny but only a hint of viscosity. The color is quite orangey and its scent is like when you smell a slice of lime. This reminded me of the time I used to rub pure lemon on my face when I was a teenager. I apply this on damp skin, directly after showering because I don't use toner in the morning. Effects on my skin: My skin absorbs it quite fast. This is my first time using Vitamin C and serum so when I applied it, my face became warm and reddish but I didn't feel any stinging or burning sensation. However, the warm feeling gradually disappears every time I use it. Week 1: The most immediate result that I observed after applying this is that it plumps up my skin and temporarily removes mini wrinkles under my eyebags. After a week of using it, my scars brighten a bit. This seems to be a promising serum for a beginner. I hope to see more results soon. Week 2: This seems to be working too well in a few weeks for me. My mini wrinkles seems to permanently fade unlike my first week where my wrinkles would show after washing it on my night routine. I updated my photo below. The first pic was taken before I started using the serum and the second pic was taken after using it for 3 weeks. Week 3-5: Nothing new happened. It just continues to plump up and brighten my scars. Week 6: I think the brightening effect slowed down. Nothing changed since my last week but the plumping effect from the hyaluronic acid is still present. I can't update the pic because I had acne on my cheek and that could be misleading to my review readers.

Green Piggy Collagen Jella Pack

Collagen is a natural substance that is responsible for skin elasticity and hydration. It’s also used in skin cell formation. As you age, your body produces less collagen, which leads to your skin not having enough to maintain its natural elasticity. This can lead to skin sagging, wrinkles, and fine lines. Nooooo! I love this one because it contains hydrolyzed collagen, which can help create plump, firm, and elastic skin with reduced dark spots! But always spf as well to reduce sun damage!

The Piggy Green Collagen Jella Pack has a very unique texture. It's a bit like old school kids slime. It has a whopping 50% collagen content and is enriched with organic ingredients such as macadamia seed oil, and cacao extract. It's main active ingredient is adenosine to help diminish wrinkles. It's free from parabens, ethanol (alcohol), animal oil, benzophenomone, mineral oil, and artificial coloring. The directions are to apply a cherry sized amount of product to skin after washing and toning, and massage into skin for 2 minutes with lightweight pressure. Warm palms by rubbing them together and lightly wrap hands around face for full absorption. This can also be used as a mask and rinsed off... it’s definitely a multitasker!! My thoughts: I haven't used this as a rinse off mask yet, only as a moisturizer or a sleeping mask and I absolutely love it! It has a very thin consistency, making using the spatula to actually apply the product virtually impossible without it falling off, so I used it to scoop out the product and put it onto my clean fingers so that I could then apply to my face. I like to use this before bed in particular, because I wake up with my skin plump, soft, smooth and moisturized. This absorbs nicely, leaving no greasy residue behind, making it great for a morning application as well. It has a very light, refreshing scent that shouldn't bother those with sensitive noses. A HUGE bonus for me is that Elizavecca claims to be cruelty free! Yay! πŸ’•πŸ• I loved this moisturizing product, think it would be effective for all skin types, but especially super dry/dehydrated/sensitive/irritated skin like mine!!!!

6 Peptide Complex Serum

I love this Peptide Serum. boosting peptides, you can increase your skin’s collagen production and tackle signs of aging, such as wrinkles, fine lines, and sun-damaged skin. Mary&May features six types of peptides that work together to maximize the anti-aging benefits it produces for your skin. It stimulates your skin to produce collagen while aiding skin repair. Woo hoo! These are just a few of my singing β€œfavorite things”!

πŸ’œ This peptide serum is formulated with 6 types of peptides for a synergistic effect: carperpeptide, hexapeptide, and traypeptide help skin regeneration, while palmitoyl tripeptide and palmitoyl pentapeptide have excellent effects on wrinkle relief. The six peptides are combined into a golden ratio to regenerate collagen for skin elasticity. πŸ’œ This is a clear, unscented serum, viscous in consistency but weightless on application and aquaeous in feel, absorbing almost instantly and the most lightweight among the peptide serums I’ve tried. πŸ’œ I’ve been using this serum in my night routines alongside other actives (including retinoids) and this layers really well considering my extensive lineup, and the elasticity is something you feel immediately upon application. πŸ’œ It’s also been a stressful couple of months for me as work got super busy on top of all the holiday stress, and I think this serum works wonders at not letting all that show on my face. πŸ€ͺ πŸ’œ I’ve come to the point wherein a peptide serum is a staple in my routine, and while I like to cycle among brands, this will definitely go into the rotation.
