Vegan Active Berry First Essence

This was my first win from the Picky app, and it’s still one of my favorites! I haven’t tried all that many berry scented products, and it’s one of my favorite options. Keep in mind I’m someone who doesn’t enjoy heavily scented products. It features Cranbetinol which offers similar benefits to your skin like retinol does.

I received this product for free from Picky and Dr Ceuracle in exchange for an honest review. As someone with dry skin, I’m fonstantly on the look out for additional steps in my post cleansing routine to keep that moisture in. This was my first time trying Dr Ceuracle, and I was blown away. It feels just like water, so it glides across the skin as you rub it in, plus it absrobed super easily. Lastly it didn’t leave a sticky sensation, and I liked the subtle berry smell of this product (I hope there will be more berry scented products from them and other brands in the future!). This product will definitely be something I reccommend to others with dry skin who are looking for an extra step to keep their skin feeling super soft. I really love this product and look forward to using the whole bottle!

Cica 100 Essence

This is a pure cica product. So if you aren’t sure how to incorporate centella asiatica into your skincare routine, this is a fantastic option to do so! Luckily cica is a gentle enough ingredient to use in combination with other actives in your routine. This is another fragrance free option.

I recieved this product for free from DewyTree and Picky in exchange for my honest review. Super lightweight, feels like water on your skin. No strong scent. Doesn’t feel sticky at all, and is another fantastic step for moisturizing if you deal with super dry skin like I do. It is made up of 100% centella asiatica, so if you want to incorporate the ingredient in your routine, this is a fantastic product to do so with. Apply before a serum and your skin will thank you!

Aqua Hyaluronic Essence

If you’re like me and have sensitive and dry leaning skin, this is a fantastic option for adding another layer of moisture to your routine. It features hyaluronic acid, niacinamide, and panthenol to help retain your skin’s moisture. This also features caffeine and is a fragrance free option.

This product was gifted to me for free by Rovectin and Picky in exchange for my honest review. I absolutely adored how hydrating this product is for my skin. It has multiple hyaluronic acids in its formula as well as niacinimide. It has licorice to combat hyperpigmentation left behind by acne, and caffeine to help with your skin’s firmness. There were so many great ingredients, I really enjoyed this product.

MadeCera Cream Double Essence Toner

This is one of my favorites that I’ve gotten to try out thanks to Picky. It’s a fantastic hybrid lotion based essence/toner, with super hydrating ingredients like ceramide, and also features centella asiatica to combat hyperpigmentation left behind by acne. It’s super lightweight and has a water like texture that still manages to moisturize your skin. This has a light floral scent.

Dry/Sensitive

There are so many things that I enjoyed about this product. Now I may get some pushback for this but I’ve often not found the appeal of toners. However hybrids like this one have managed to change my mind. I adore how this has a water like texture. It’s super lightweight and absorbs into your skin super easily without leaving it feeling tacky or sticky at all. It features fantastic ingredients like centella asiatica/cica, ceramide to help with moisture, and oatmeal which helps calm irritated skin. This is definitely something I can see making a permanent staple in my routine. I highly recommend this for anyone who has dry and sensitive skin like me! I also think it’s lightweight enough that people with more oily leaning skin could also enjoy it.

Madagascar Centella Probio-Cica Essense Toner

Another hybrid product, this centella asiatica/cica essence toner is another fragrance free option. It also helps combat hyperpigmentation left behind by acne, and I was amazed by how moisturizing this one was while still being lightweight. Usually I’m so-so on toners, but this was a great option!

Dry/Sensitive

I have received this product for free from Picky and Skin1004 in exchange for my honest review. This toner comes in a generous 210ml bottle that will last a long time. Also has no scent so it's perfect for sensitive skin types and noses. Has a 3:1:1 ratio of ceramides, Phyto cholesterol, and fatty acids✨️ It's said to repair damaged skin barrier and provide care for dry sensitive skin. I'd need to use it for longer to be able to see such an effect though. Personally I love using this for the seven-skin method because it's watery, non-sticky neither leaves a greasy feeling on my dry skin. My skin feels moisturized and I can also feel that slight layer on my skin after a few applications. Does not contain any artificial fragrances or colors and is safe to use on all skin types including sensitive skin.
