This cream has definitely earned a spot on my favorite list 😍 I must admit despite its claim to be gentle, I was a bit hesitant about the blackberry extract. However, I was proven to be mistaken because it's been a godsend for my dry irritated skin. Although some may find it to be fragrance free, I noticed a faint scent of custard. I know it sounds odd but it definitely has a gourmand fragrance to it. The texture reminds me of smooth butter that feels as if it's melting into my skin. Considering my skin tends to become easily irritated, this cream provides a nice smoothing effect while protecting the skin barrier.

Dr. Andrew Weil for Origins Mega-Mushroom Relief & Resilience Soothing Treatment Lotion

Dry/Sensitive

I received the Mega-Mushroom Relief and Resilience Soothing Treatment Lotion which included a 12 months' supply compliments of @origins as part of the 🍄Mega-Mushroom🍄 Giveaway 🍄 The Mega-Mushroom Relief and Resilience Soothing Treatment Lotion contains Reishi plus Fermented Chaga Mushrooms, plant derived Hyaluronic acid and Licorice Root that helps the look of irritated skin, reduces redness while providing exceptional hydration. EXPERIENCE This lotion is quite similar to an essence or toner by providing more of a watery texture with an earthy herbal scent. I've found it to be very effective when used as the second step in my skincare routine by applying it before serum and moisturizer. I first tried applying with my fingertips but soon discovered that using a cotton ball was more effective and far less wasteful. It absorbs wonderfully, leaving my skin feeling super hydrated without becoming sticky or having a heavy feel. I do experience moderate redness due to rosacea and it does an incredible job of calming and soothing my sensitive skin, especially during flare-ups. Since receiving a few months ago, I have truly enjoyed using this amazing gift, which will certainly last throughout the year. Highly Recommend!!🍄🍄🍄

Carrot Carotene Calming Water Pad

Dry/Sensitive

I received this product for free in exchange for my review. 🥕 Keep Calm and Carrot on with a soothing water pad infused with Carrot Seed Oil, Carrot Extract and antioxidants that targets inflamed dehydrated skin and redness. Suitable for all skin types. EXPERIENCE I've used these toner pads for a week now and I must say they definitely have been a life saver. The pads consist of a thick cotton material with an earthy herbal scent. They're super saturated and the waffle texture feels great to the touch. I appreciate the instant cooling effect especially during flare-ups and the extra hydration is exactly what my dry skin needs. Highly Recommend!

Snail Bee High Content Essence

profile

Dry/Sensitive

🤎 The Snail Bee High Content Essence is infused with Snail secretion, Bee venom, Niacinamide, Aloe Leaf Juice and Adenosine that helps to soothe the skin while delivering intense hydration. Ideal for all skin types. EXPERIENCE This essence provides a gel-like texture without any noticeable scent. Once its applied, it delivers more of a watery feel leaving behind a nice dewy finish. I've tried JUMISO Snail Mucin and I must confess the Snail Bee is my favorite between the two. It absorbs deeply into the skin without becoming sticky or having a heavy feel. I couldn't believe how fast it dries because it usually takes a few minutes before I can start layering. I also discovered that it does an exceptional job of reducing redness especially during flare-ups. Although the JUMISO Snail Mucin is effective, the Snail Bee seems to work much quicker at soothing and calming my skin. Overall I'm pleasantly surprised by its performance because it's very rare that I see a noticeable decrease in redness so quickly. Highly Recommend!!🤎🤎🤎

Engine 10 Hybrid Botox Serum

profile

Dry/Sensitive

I received the NEXGEN Engine 10 Hybrid Botox Serum for free in exchange for my "BRUTALLY HONEST" review compliments of @credithink ❤️‍🔥This award-winning anti-aging facial serum is made with Botulenin+EGF +Protein, which is far stronger than Peptides for delivering visible results. This formula encompasses the power of Real EGF to restore and repair the skin by plumping and lifting, leaving behind a more youthful glow. ❤️‍🔥 KEY INGREDIENTS Botulenin (BOTOX) Aratox (combining EGF and Spider Venom. EXPERIENCE I found this serum to be quite intriguing yet a bit intimidating not only for having sensitive skin but just the thought of spider venom can be a bit frightening. Considering the serum must be refrigerated, the watery texture is very cold to the touch, which I found to be very refreshing. Although I did experience some stickiness at first, it eventually disappeared once it dried. I also noticed my skin reddening, but since using it for awhile now, it's not too concerning because it lessens throughout the day. I'm also very surprised by how deeply moisturized my skin has become without any uncomfortable tightness. Considering my skin has become noticeably brighter and healthier looking, I will definitely continue to use.
