Master Patch

The best patches, they reduce the inflammation and that way you also don’t touch them

This pimple patch is my holy grail! Whenever i have any breakouts, I’ll just stick this on for 1-2 days and it will disappear. If the puss is already there it will just suck them all out and leave your skin smooth. It will also help to heal your acne afterwards and leave minimal scars on your skin. This master patch is also quite transparent so you can wear it out. Absolutely love it!

Niacinamide 10% + Zinc 1%

My favorite serum, it helps with prevention

Niacinamide 10% + Zinc 1% product review
profile

martix


Oily/Sensitive

🐚 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!

Glow Recipe Watermelon Glow PHA + BHA Pore Tight Toner is a gentle watermelon toner that exfoliates to clear clogged pores, hydrates skin, and tightens the appearance of pores giving you smoother and plumper skin. Key Ingredients: - Watermelon Extract helps to hydrate soothe skin while improving the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, dark spots - Cactus Water rich in electrolytes amino acids that hydrate help retain moisture - PHA help to resurface smooth skin, while also removing buildup of dead skin cells - BHA helps to decongests clogged pores reduce the appearance of pores blackheads - Tea Tree Extract has antimicrobial properties that help clean pores soothe irritation This is a thicker toner, and sticky, than I’m generally used to. It’s bouncy but also viscous due to the cactus water. It absorbs into skin fairly quickly and provides a great layer of hydration. My skin is noticeably brighter and I have noticed the appearance of my pores tighten over time. It does contain fragrance, though it is low on the list. At times I do find the scent to be a bit overpowering as it does linger for sometime once it has absorbed. This is a very gentle exfoliator. I would personally recommend this to those just starting exfoliates or those who have sensitive dry skin. PROS: - Parabens, Mineral Oil, Sulfates, Silicones, Phthalates, Drying Alcohol - Doesn’t irritate my skin or cause breakouts - Tightens my pores slightly - Hydrates skin - Soothes Calms redness in cheeks - Skin is brighter - Controls excess oil . CONS: - Contains fragrance. But it is low on list. - Scent can be strong at times - Bottle is heavy and not travel friendly - Price is a bit steep in my opinion for full size so I shop around and get a deal.

Back when I started really focusing on a skincare routine, I wasn’t too familiar with the terms AHA, BHA, and all of that. I just knew that my skin needed “acids” to keep breakouts and congestion at bay. But, after learning the differences in acids and how they worked, I realized that BHA was essential to my Routine LOL! This particular product from The Ordinary was intriguing because at the time…it looked like a really straightforward and affordable product. As with a lot of The Ordinary Products that I have used in the past…I really appreciate the minimalist packaging and glass bottles. These bottles have the potential to be reused or recycled really easily and that is a total bonus for me. My initial application of this product went fine, just a couple of drops on the skin and then distributed into an even layer. Once thing I did notice is that this product absorbs rather quickly. I ended up moving this step in my routine to just after my toner. That way my skin was slightly damp/dewy to allow for a more even application. Just a quick note that applying acids to damp skin can cause them to activate faster. Meaning bigger potential for irritation. Also, the pH of the products you use can impact the efficacy of acids. I’m no expert on this but I simply do what makes the most sense for my schedule and skin. Monitor your skin, listen to it, and respond accordingly.

Two in One Poreless Power Liquid

It helps cleaning the pores as a chemical exfoliant

Two in One Poreless Power Liquid product review

Oily/Sensitive

The best product for beginners on skincare actives. It has BHA, an excellent acid for chemical exfoliation. This has been the first chemical exfoliator I’ve used and I’ve noticed a reduction on pore size, even though my pores are very big, I can see a difference. It’s very gentle and I haven’t felt any irritation on my sensitive skin. My skin looks better, more brightened

Goodbye Redness Centella Powder Wash

I love it, but I don’t use it daily

Oily/Sensitive

It really absorbs the oiliness of my skin and makes it look more homogeneous. I’ve seen an improvement on skin texture (the pores are a bit reduced) and color (more homogeneous). The package is really good, to get the perfect amount of product. It didn’t irritate my skin at all.
