Hi everyone! I’m so excited that I’m finally doing a collaboration with a fellow beauty blogger,Valencia, who is known as pinkbubbles_blog on Instagram. She’s such a sweet person and is always posting amazing content. Her Instagram account and blog is all things beauty and lifestyle related . We have decided to to a current skincare routine which I’m so excited to share with you all. I will leave her details below so when you are done reading my review you can head over straight to her blog.
My skincare routine:
PIXI Retionol tonic
This product I had purchased from Cult beauty last year and I’m so glad I had even though it was an impulsive buy. Retinol is known to reduce fine lines and evens out complexion over time. Although this product contains jasmine it smells very medicated. This product has helped reduce some of my break outs and I did notice some radiance to my skin after using it for a period of time. I’ll definitely repurchase this again.
The Ordinary Alpha Arbutin 2% + HA
So I usually use this product at night before I apply my Neutrogena Hydro Boost water gel. I recently have been enjoying using the ordinary products as they are cruelty free. They are also alcohol free and oil free. Alpha Arbutin has been known to reduce the appearance of blemishes and hyper-pigmentation. I haven’t noticed a difference in my hyper-pigmentation but I did notice my blemishes lightening. I will continue to use this for quite some time to see if it does help with my hyperpigmentation.
Neutrogena Hydro Boost water gel
When I first used this product I didn’t see much of a difference. However, I feel like recently my skin has been going through the most and I have been lacking some hydration. Ever since Durban weather has been unbearably hot, I have opt to use this product as it has a lightweight consistency and is easily absorbed into my skin. Also, I like that it is oil free! My skin feels hydrated and so soft after every use. A great product to have. I use this product both in the morning and in the night again.
4. Undereye solution
The Ordinary Caffeine Solution 5 % EGCG
I really liked this product. I find that it does reduce puffiness and hydrates my under eyes. I haven’t seen a difference to my under eye fine lines but to be honest no product has helped with that. So if a product helps with hydration, as this product does, it’s good enough for me.
4. Lip product
This has been an oldie but goodie. Sometimes when I usually forget about lip products I usually grab onto this first. It’s ordinary petroleum jelly that hydrates my lips. But this week my lips have been extremely dry so I have been reaching out for this alot!
That’s my current skincare products. There’s not alot of products involved but I feel like I should be doing more. However, this has been working for me currently and I’m quite happy with it.
