I was sent this product in exchange for my honest review. 🟣Purito Dermide Balancing Barrier Balm 💲19.80/60mil 🐇Cruelty Free 🌱Vegan 🤍Fragrance & EO Free ♻️PCR Packaging 🟣Standout Ingredients: ✔Ceramides ✔Squalane ✔Tocopheral ✔Mango Seed Butter ✔Sodium Hyaluronate 💬My thoughts: Dry/sensitive skin types rejoice!🙌🏻 This super rich balm is packed with ceramides. With mango seed butter & squalane this stuff is my barriers BFF these days...well, nights. Balms are too heavy for my morning moisturizer, but its awesome for sealing in my evening routine. This is one of those products I liked right away. The silicone-free formula still gives you that slip and feels great on contact. Its perfect for giving your skin a nice gentle massage as you rub it in. My barrier is in good health these days and I depend on products like this to keep it that way. Highly recommend!

Y'all this is a super rich, buttery balm. With winter coming I'm all about barrier repair & thick creams that don't make my face feel like it's suffocating so I was super stoked to win this giveaway in exchange for an honest review. About the brand: According to their website Pure'Am prides itself on being cruelty free & creating plant-powered, organic, vegan products. If organic ingredients are your thing, you'll appreciate their multiple certifications. They also share study results under each product on their site. I appreciate the way they combine science, tech, & ethics. 📦The packaging is beautiful and the squeeze tube is really ideal for this type of product. Now, let's get into the balm... Claims ✔Ultra Hydrating & Moisturizing ✔Nourishing ✔Repairs & Strengthens Skin Barrier ⭐Ingredient Standouts⭐ ▫Yuzu Water ▫Vitamins A,B,C & E ▫Shea Butter ▫Vegan Ceramide ▫Alpha Bisabolol ▫Jojoba Oil ▫Organic Green Tea Leaf Extract ▫Squalane 💬My experience: I've really enjoyed using this balm at the end of my night routine. It lives up to the nourishing & moisturizing claims. It almost feels like a super rich overnight mask. It's a little too thick for my morning cream, but perfect overnight. My skin feels silky soft when I wake up. I'm excited to see what types of benefits I'll see after a few weeks of use, but for now I'm enjoying the hydration & moisture its given me as well as how it seals everything in. To my super dry friends, this is a must try!

I would definitely repurchase this one.

*Received from Picky & Plodica in exchange for review. 💜Plodica Let Me Soothing Creamy Mask $25/120ml 🌱Vegan ⭐Rating: 🤸🏻‍♀️🤸🏻‍♀️🤸🏻‍♀️🤸🏻‍♀️ 🙌🏻Ingredient Highlights: ▪︎Nelumbo Nucifera(Sacred Lotus) Callus Culture Extract & Leaf Cell Culture Powder ▪︎Cica ▪︎Laminaria Japonica Extract (kelp/seaweed) ▪︎Aloe Leaf Extract 💬My thoughts: "Soothing Creamy Mask" is the perfect name for this. It feels exactly how you think it would. Super creamy with a slightly gel-like texture. It definitely soothes & hydrates while you sleep Definitely a great pick if you enjoy sleeping masks for that extra boost at night. Overall I was pleasantly surprised by this one & will absolutely keep it in my routine. Keep your eye on this brand because I have a feeling they're going to start showing up more & more in the skincare community.

I received this cream for free from Picky and Skin1004 in exchange for my thoughts. Quick Pros: Key Features of the line: ✔Fragrance Free ✔Cruelty Free/Vegan ✔Fermented Centella Asiatica (Lactobacillus/Centella Asiatica Extract Ferment Filtrate) ✔TECA (Titrated Extract of Centella Asiatica) *I've been making some notes for a post all about TECA, but in short its said to strengthen the skin barrier, calm & sooth irritation, prevent dehydration, & even skin tone. Talk about a multi-tasker! My thoughts: 💬The fact that this doesn't contain snail mucin boggles my mind. It has that slippery stringy feeling that I love so much. And y'all...she's RICH. You only need a small amount for all the soothing, moisturizing, firming goodness.

Advanced Snail 92 All-in-One Cream

I use this more like a serum step under my fave moisturizer. At the end of my routine I use a mist or toner, then snail cream, & seal it all in with a rich moisturizer. Yas, hydration boost!

My skin LOVES this cream. It is so soothing and after 2 months of use I feel like overall my face looks brighter and happier. 🐌💕 It's especially soothing after all of the irritation I experience swimming in chlorine. Using their cica toner followed by this cream really calms my angry skin.
