MY CURRENT SKINCARE ROUTINE | Sun Damage, Hormonal Pigmentation, Anti Aging + Acne
mother you carried me you raised me how have i betrayed you so much what’s up guys welcome back so today we are going to be going over my skincare routine my current skin care routine as promised this is going to be my morning routine and my evening routine and this is coming out of my second trimester i am rounding out my 27th week currently a pregnancy and so i did a check-in right at the end of my first trimester which was actually my like little low-key announcement video that i was pregnant and there have been so many changes in my skin over the last trimester over the last like 13-14 weeks that there are multiple products in some cases for like different decisions that my skin made while all this was happening so we have a lot to get through i have a lot to cover and we’re going to be talking about pigmentation different kind of moisture changes as i felt like my skin like literally changed from oily to dry acne things like that so there will probably be something for everybody in this video i feel like my skin has kind of been around the world and back yeah guys let’s go ahead and jump into my skincare routine and i will make this quick because we have a lot of things that i want to talk about today but uh if you’re curious about this disgusting band-aid on my finger trust me what’s underneath it is worse i woke up at 2 30 in the morning two nights ago to my cat per monster wretching on me and you journal your instincts start firing because you don’t want a cat to throw up on the bed and cats are up all the time you know but like this one just happened to be in the middle of the night my instinct was to pick him up and throw him on the floor cats always land on their feet it was fine but when i did it i must have just slammed my nail into his side and the nail broke off into the quick in a really really like i thought it was going to be okay because my nails have never been this like strong before so in the past if my nails broke off they would break off and it was just like you know whatever it was almost like i had just like trimmed my nail but as i was like trying to fall asleep again it was throbbing and i was like something is wrong and so to the freezer to get some ice and in the light of the freezer i saw what i had done and it is really really awful it was just as i had been like so excited about like talking to you guys about like oh my gosh i’m loving having my nails long again they finally recovered from dip nails and blah blah blah and then this happened and it hurts so much like it’s like i also have a paper cut on my neck from carrying packages i’m just kind of like bringing a bunch of just dumb disasters like clumsy disasters on myself right now on top of everything else having to do with pregnancy so that is the story behind this it’s really like not cute to look at right now like with this band-aid on it but i promise you it is a million times worse under there anyway so we’re going to start with my morning routine that’s kind of the way that i typically do these videos and i always do these videos with no makeup on so that you guys can see what i’m working with i haven’t been getting any peels obviously because i’m pregnant and i can’t use any kind of like retinol or plus the other one hydroquinone or anything like that which i think is in the the ipl that i typically get so a lot of the challenges that i’ve been up against since i got pregnant were like basically just trying to prevent as much as i could i know i can’t do any peeling but just try and hold off the pigment for as long as i can with different you know brightening products none of them being as strong as something that would peel my skin so this is what i always start with in the morning i literally just run through my face with water because moisture barrier i always say that but like i don’t soak my face in the morning mainly i don’t have the patience i like to go sit out and have my coffee outside and so i know that i have to do my skincare before i have my coffee so it’s the first thing i do when i wake up i go and i rinse my face and then i put on a moisturizer first so we’re already getting into like a multi-faceted situation here because i’ve had three moisturizers this month that i’ve used for different reasons actually we’ll really only talk about two for this purpose daytime you know you kind of want something a little bit lighter way in the daytime and this is more recent this is kind of what i think i’ll probably end up going back to just because it’s more cost effective this came in my detox box so this is the super sensitive skin stuff from graydon skincare it is a really great plant-based you know clean self-identifies as clean uh skincare company this isn’t blowing my mind as far as like hydration is concerned i’m using it because i have it i’m using it because it’s nice and my skin seems happy with it but it’s not hydrating enough to use at night or anything like that it’s not like blowing my mind in terms of like wow my skin really drinks that up and loves it it actually kind of makes my skin feel a little bit tight afterwards and so um it’s just not something that i can like see myself repurchasing when i’m done with it however i have repurchased this and it is phenomenal so this is the brand new glossier priming moisturizer balance in my last skincare routine video i talked about how i couldn’t talk about the moisturizer that i was using it was this and it’s because they push back the release date it was supposed to come out in like march and they pushed it until like just a few weeks ago and so i announced it on my instagram but i haven’t got a chance to talk about it on my channel yet guys this is an oil control gel cream it’s beautiful it’s cost-effective it doesn’t have retinol in it the way that the um priming regular priming moisturizer does and so it’s just like ideal for uh normal to sensitive to oily skin types i definitely used this more in the beginning of my second trimester when my skin was super oily and i used it in the morning and at night because i found that like i just didn’t need really really heavy hydration on my skin but now i would use this just in the morning because i then use an spf on top of that and i just don’t want to feel like super greasy so the sunscreen that i was using that i actually used up was a sunscreen that i would highly recommend it is the purito cintella green level unscented the only reason i stopped using it is because it has like a tiny bit of salicylic acid in it and i was told salicylic acid isn’t great for pregnancy i can like make a small change in my routine i’m going to you know there’s nothing vital about that salicylic acid being in that sunscreen to me and so i switched to this one this is the pureto comfy water sunblock the only thing that is not awesome about this is that it kind of pills under makeup if you are in the habit of really buffing your makeup in and so if you’re not pregnant use the centella green level i will go back to it i turned my sister on to it i’ve turned my mom on to it because and both of them have this quality to them but this is like a k-beauty spf and so it’s like a chemical i think it’s mostly chemical sunscreen but they have things that in there that like preserve the effects of the actual like spf value of it for longer during the day that we don’t consider to be spf value in the u.
s if that makes sense and so it’s like you can’t make that claim with these ingredients it’s a whole complicated thing the whole thing being this is a chemical sunscreen that works better than american chemical sunscreens there are american chemical sunscreens that work like this but they can’t call themselves sunscreens basically and so uh this is super super awesome i like it a lot but i just have to be careful when i’m putting my makeup on you know because it will just like if you’re aggressive it’ll just peel up so i would go with this until a green level if you’re not pregnant this is just kind of a temporary fix and then that’s my morning that’s my morning no big deal it’s literally two products it’s one of those moisturizers and an spf and then i just kind of go about my day do my makeup maybe i don’t do my makeup but it protects me from like blue light even if i’m just inside all day which i mostly am because it’s a million degrees outside i’m sorry that i’m talking so fast i feel like there’s so many products in front of me and i just i want to believe that my routine is really simple like in reality it’s just this is not so uh the main thing is i’ve been getting a lot of cool like skin care in the mail lately from a bunch of different really cool companies that i’ve always wanted to try and so i’ve just been crashing through trying a bunch of products and a lot of them are just really good and so there have been like a lot of things that i’ve used in the last like you know 13 14 weeks i did just get a big pr package from verst skincare and then i also just got this in the mail that i haven’t tried yet but i thought it was worth mentioning uh good molecules just came out with their color let’s try that again discoloration correcting serum formulated with acetyl tranexamate mesolate to target discoloration and promote an even skin tone my biochemist out there can let me know what the heck that is i don’t know what that is but the uh the thing that they’re really introducing here is that they are actually giving away their formulas like they have the all the percentages of everything on the side of their box they’re being complete like more transparent than i have ever seen any other company be and i don’t know maybe other companies do this but i think that this is pretty groundbreaking very very cool so um yeah good on good molecules a very affordable company i’ve not tried this yet but i heard it is fantastic okay night routine so the first thing that i do if i’ve worn makeup that day is i take out my makeup i use the good molecules instant cleansing balm this is 15 dwellers this is a very cost-effective cleansing balm that works really really well it travels really well it actually does what it says it’s going to do it does actually take your makeup off it does actually go water soluble and rinse into a milk there are a lot of them out there that say that they’re going to i am not about to put a hot towel on my face and soak my makeup off and get a towel dirty every single time i take my makeup off that’s just not reasonable to me and then to have to scrub an oily product off of my face there are way too many of them out there that claim to be cleansing bones when really they are just bombs there’s no cleansing action happening like oil will always break down makeup there’s no science there so anyway this is awesome i like it a lot burst did just send me theirs as well so you know when i run out of this i’ll try that one but this totally totally works and gets my full endorsement the other half of my double cleanse if you’re unfamiliar with the double cleanse it’s basically like let’s mobilize all the stuff that you’ve been wearing all over your face all day and let’s get it off of there but now let’s go ahead and like make sure we do like a real like a clean you know what i mean just like a good cleanse and get everything off so the get everything off step is the glossy milky jelly cleanser i don’t know if i’ll ever like i have tried so many other cleansers and i just don’t really see any reason to like deviate from this long term it’s super cost effective it’s 18 for this you get six ounces it’s incredibly gentle it works for every single skin type and it doesn’t disturb your moisture barrier it doesn’t suds it doesn’t hurt when you get it in your eyes it’s amazing stuff like it’s just incredible and like there’s absolutely no reason for me to ever like question it in my eyes okay now we get into the technology i do want to mention guys caroline hirons just did a big long instagram live with a biochemist she’s a doctor she’s a doctor of something she’s got her doctorate in some kind of chemical formulation technology having to do with skin care she worked for fresh she worked for a bunch of other companies and it’s them basically breaking down a lot of the claims that kind of get under caroline hiron’s skin so to speak clean and cruelty free and uh sustainability and things like that because the main takeaway for them was like they wanted to communicate how nuanced it all is like how the differences are like okay we want to get away from petrochemicals but then we’re destroying rainforests with palm oil or we want to use post-consumer materials but sometimes we don’t know what was in them in the first place and maybe that’s not that awesome so we have to think about that kind of sourcing or you know a lot of the vegan ingredients that we are using that are coming from plants are actually more exhausting to the environment because the things that they are replacing were actually throwaway materials from other manufacturing processes and so now those don’t have a buyer anymore and they’re just going to waste too it is extremely educational like i found it to be very very good and i highly recommend watching it it didn’t really change my stance on anything because you guys know i am a big fan of nuance i’m a big fan of things not being super black and white you know i came out of clean routine 2019 being like there’s just a lot more here than things being good or evil and if you haven’t watched that video that i put out at the end of the year last year i will link it below and the reason that i call attention to that is just because i’m a big believer in you know dermatologist approved really powerful ingredients when used the right way especially when it comes to the fact that you can’t hope and dream and feel good away things like melasma and pigmentation you just can’t doesn’t matter how good the ingredients make you feel in your soul they’re not going to fade the pigmentation that you don’t want on your face and when i say pigmentation i mean things like melasma it means sun damage i do not mean melanin that is like naturally occurring in people’s skin don’t bleach your skin that’s not the point the point is i have an ever-growing melasma mustache and i just freckle and pigment really really easily and things like this where i’ve had zits that because i’m not in kind of a appeal cycle right now of any kind they just even though they’re gone they just live there do you see that like how they’re just you know what i mean i have zits that have completely healed and they’re just gonna be ghosts forever under there and i’m sorry there is just only so much that like natural products that are made out of plants yanked from the ground can really do the lab made ingredients are the things that are going to actually solve that and i will almost always recommend starting at your dermatologist because it’s where you’re going to see results they’re going to give you products that a they will instruct you on how to use safely and b they’re gonna i mean for all the money that we pour into the feel good of different products for different buzz ingredients you go to your dermatologist girl you’re going to see results it’s going to be expensive but you’re going to get guaranteed results and like i’m here for results that said after i do my double cleanse the first thing that i have been putting on my face has been this so this is the full moon serum from graydon and i actually really like this it has i believe it’s called moth bean extract in it which is like a semi-retinoid but it’s definitely not a retinol and i feel like the most that i can expect from it is that it kind of holds off pigmentation those are the promises that like that’s the extent of the promises that i feel like these kinds of products can offer is that like it can somewhat arrest the uh the pigmentation happening but it’s not going to actively fade it and i think that that is like what vitamin c does that’s what bakuchiol does that’s what something like moth bean extract does any of these natural retinol alternatives they’re not retinol i mean you hear caroline irons who is not my personal hero guys don’t don’t like you know take this as like a full-throated endorsement for her i think she’s kind of a bully a lot of times like she comes for brands for like no seemingly no reason a lot of the time but anyway i do think that she has a wealth of knowledge in her brain and she’s extremely no-nonsense it’s just like you have to kind of get past that first layer of like her like um i don’t know blowhardness i guess she’s just got this big blustery attitude but anyway i do really really trust you know her experience and what she you know gets kind of frustrated with is like retinols claiming to have the same kind of results as retinols and they just don’t and they’re not going to nothing’s going to and so i don’t want to promise that this is going to but it does actually help with brightening and i i have seen results from it in that respect where i just see that uh my skin is pigmenting less it’s holding it up it just uh helps like you know these kinds of things heal on my face a little bit but by no means like overnight results or like any kind of peeling effect now i saw my dermatologist today i saw her for a different reason for a completely different like skin check but i asked for her advice because i had to stop using my basically like personally mixed medicated brightening cream that i was using to go between peels because you know you can’t just go get a peel every month like the recovery is really long and so um i got a lot of really great results from using the last version of this that i had this is the review brightening cream okay you can’t they don’t even have a website yeah you can google it and see a picture of the package but like they don’t even have a way of buying this online you can only get it at a dermatologist and on its own it has lactic acid and niacinamide and i don’t know other things that i don’t quite understand that i’m sure are fantastic but they had in the past mixed in zero two five percent retinoic acid into it for me which obviously is not in this formulation and then uh a certain degree of arbitase and i’m not sure what the percentage is and i asked her what she recommended and she’s like we’re not gonna do retinol but we can do the arbitase and so uh this is still custom mixed for me but even alone apparently this will show brightening results so i’m gonna start using this tonight because i really miss this girl in my life okay and she did tell me that like breastfeeding is okay with retinol i’m just you know not while incubating actual baby and then i also can’t do any botox or fillers even while i’m nursing so these were all questions that i had for her today but i’m very very excited to get back on using this because i think that i might see some actual brightening results because this is medicated you know and i got her actual approval to use this the excited i’m so out of breath you guys oh i’m so out of breath it’s like oh my god also i wanted to share this little anecdote my mom who i bought her a her first chemical peel for christmas and she really really liked it but obviously chemical peels have to come you know in a series i think that i saw amazing results the first time but i was also like 30 when i got my first one or maybe 31 and my mom is 63 and she’s like girl they’re just more on my skin i’ve got 30 more years on you it’s gonna take more than one peel and i’m like okay so she did see results but like just not really enough for her and so she went to her dermatologist and her dermatologist prescribed her tretinoin you know what i mean like an actual like retin-a tube that’s also 0.
025 retinoic acid which is i i might be the strongest you can do i’m not sure i’m not sure but she was not really doing it for like cosmetic reasons she’s doing it because she has this like crazy like weird uh almost like kp on her skin this like weird um texture and they’re like little sand granules under her skin and so the doctor was like look retinol is the only thing that’s going to solve this and i was like i’m not a professional but i must agree i believe that retinol solves almost everything and so anyway talking to her on the phone yesterday and um she’s telling me about her skincare routine and i think i might have actually been talking to her at night while she was doing it that’s what it was it was like she was having a speakerphone while she was in the shower this is the relationship that i have with my mother she’s just like that’s not a reason to get off the phone um and so she’s doing her skincare or whatever and she’s like you know i’m really starting to see results from this stuff and i was like oh are you using your sunscreen she’s like yeah i bought that purity stuff that you told me to buy and i was like okay cool and she’s like my skin feels kind of tight though and i was like uh what moisturizer are you using she’s like i ran out of moisturizer i was like i’m sorry you’re using um a medicated tretinoin cream and you’re not using a moisturizer and she’s like should i be and i was like mom what and i was like do you have oils do you have anything she’s like i have some oils i was like use the oils you got to do something she’s like i don’t know i just thought that this was like the one thing that i was supposed to be using i was like mother you carried me you raised me how have i betrayed you so much that i run a channel on beauty and i am obsessed with retinol and i did not impart to you the knowledge that you need to be using a moisturizer with a retinol cream i just felt so bad i was like mom how are you dealing with your skin being that dry and she goes my skin is always dry and i was like it doesn’t have to be like i just wanted to go like fly there and rub moisturizer on her face and so she goes oh i’ve got some egyptian magic and i was like i don’t know what that is she goes i’m gonna rub that on my face and i was like okay better than nothing so yeah i felt so bad i was just like i have done you wrong i have betrayed you that i i couldn’t imagine using a retinol cream and then being like dude gonna go to bed now like no way use a moisturizer anyway onto moisturizer so like i said these two have not in like the past six weeks or so like the second half of my second trimester have not been strong enough to give me the hydration that i want and for me the symptom of not using something that’s rich enough when my skin is really dry which by the way that’s the main reason that i switched over was just that like my skin went from like unusually oily too drier than it has ever been i’m talking like i told you guys in one video i lean over in my back stings because like my skin stretches ever so slightly and it all just prickles and stings and i’m just like oh my god where is my like you know body oil or whatever but i was noticing it on my neck as well when i would wake up in the morning and everything just hurt and it felt creepy you know and that’s just lack of moisture so i went from using these two to the one that you guys recommended to me as a dupe for the drunk elephant protein polypeptide cream which was you know the one that i’ve been using for so long but i’m really working and i have i’ve worked drunk elephant out of my routine and so this is the acure radically rejuvenating whipped night cream multi peptides for allic acid and vitamin c 100 vegan zero percent pretentious and very inexpensive i think this was like 22 or something like that for like a you know a good overnight cream you guys were right this is great this is really really good it has the same kind of like weight to it that the protein does where it’s super nourishing without feeling oily or greasy or super heavy it’s really really good it’s like why was i paying 68 for uh for the protini and i believe that this is a far more recycled i mean i have a terracycle box but for those who do not or don’t have a place to like drop that kind of stuff off i believe that this packaging is still recyclable uh to the extent that plastic is recyclable don’t get me started but um the uh proteiny airless pump is completely non-recyclable so very cool i will say i ordered their spf and i ordered their overnight glycolic the spf is a nightmare we talked about this it does this weird curdly thing where it just goes full spackle on my face like instantly like these white curdles on my cheeks and it won’t move and i have to like wash it off it’s bizarre and uh and so i don’t recommend that one and then they’re glycolic which i i don’t know like i don’t know whether i just don’t like have a really good experience with glycolic as a rule i’m not sure whether it was me or the product but it was like the beginning of a lot of this acne and it could have also been just a hormonal moment in my pregnancy i don’t want to assign blame just to that product but at the same time it was the thing that i had changed in my routine recently when a bunch of stuff started popping up on my face and so i just stopped using it this is truly great so thank you guys okay and then we have my oils and then i’ll talk about like my like masks and treatments and stuff really quick so i have three oils that i’ve been using that i shared somewhat in my haul video that i did recently when i just kind of binged on skincare body care hair care stuff but um this is the oc essential hydrating oil this was really good again for when my skin was not super dry it’s not enough for very dry skin it doesn’t have that really like anxious luxurious like glow thing to it it’s more i feel like a balancing oil for people who don’t have like tragically dry skin the way that i do but it does smell really nice which is definitely not supposed to be a selling point of any skincare product but it does happen to smell really nice and and i don’t think that it’s bad it’s just not enough but these two are ones that i use every single night and it’s kind of um redundant but i go with the pure cold pressed rosehip seed oil from good molecules and it’s just pure rose hip oil whereas this is the greatest blend in the world of all kinds of things so i do this first just because i kind of want to double down on my rosehip oil because apparently it does have a little bit of like pregnancy save vitamin a in it i’m just going on a wing and a prayer at this point but i already had it it’s 10 dwalas on their website it’s a very very good little product i like it very much and then this is just my this is just such an absolute treasure of a product this is the icona lab renewal face oil i think this is like my fourth bottle of this or something it i have 20 off down below if you’re interested and they do do a like trial size of it that they saw on their website i can’t recommend this highly enough this is the only and i say this every time is the only face oil beauty oil i have ever used that makes me look younger period full stop like i’m not you know nothing is going to make wrinkles go away we talked about that in my last video if you want your wrinkles to go away you have to go and freeze them with botox that’s just a thing you know what i mean but as far as like the the micro lines and everything like that from the standpoint of cell turnover and just general nourishment and plumping and stuff like that this does it all like it’s never too early to start using something like this as a maintenance product and also i i want to send one to my mom you know what i mean i feel like she would put this on her face and go oh you know because there’s just absolutely nothing unnecessary in it but it’s just chock full of fantastic stuff i know it has some rose hip oil and i know it has some more rose oil in it of some other kind but it’s also got a bunch of other stuff in it and uh it’s all hand made in small batches and you’re supposed to keep it out of the light and everything like that it has a little pouch it goes in tanya gold is the owner of the company sweetest human being ever like when she initially reached out to me to try her product i immediately was like yes this is my kind of person like that it was the most sincere straightforward unpretentious and just genuinely nice email that i’ve gotten like it’s just super rare to find a company and these are the companies that i tend to try and seek out but she actually found me no matter how big their company gets no matter how great their their product is or whatever they’re totally unpretentious and they talk to you very sincerely and from the heart and she’s just like the most genuine person and like someone that i just i’m so proud to be able to talk about her products but at the same time i’m so proud because it’s a really really really good product i love it a lot so anyway that’s my accountability and then i always end with this at the end of the night this is the mother dirt ao plus mist for face and body this is a probiotic spray i’ve been using for years and years and years it is currently condensing a little bit condensating i don’t know but i have it because it was in the fridge and it was cold and now it’s not as cold so um anyway spray this all over your face this one i dropped it so i screwed it up so i turned it upside down there we go this is a remarkable product it is 50 a bottle there are plenty of other probiotic products out there you know from tula and things like that they’re all going to cost you a lot of money because probiotics are just a really cool technology this is the only one that i know of that requires being kept in the refrigerator because of the live bacterial culture okay khaki because of the live bacteria cultures that are in it and it’s incredibly effective at preventing bacterial breakouts for me over time also i’ll put it under my arm sometimes if i’ve got stinky armpits i will use it many other places anywhere anywhere you can imagine that you might not want your bacteria conspiring against you this is a great product for that so athletes summertime sweating just you know let your mind wander let’s talk about my kind of like not every single night treatments that i do for the specific reasons that i do them we will talk first about congestion congestion in my pores i have found especially during pregnancy when i can’t use anything that’s helping with cell turnover like in any aggressive way that sometimes it’s time to bring in the enzymes you know and i’ve actually been trying out one from tracy martin that they just sent me but like the jury’s out on it but it’s really really nice like it’s it’s this like turquoise mask it’s it’s lovely but this is one that i can definitely you know put my stamp of approval on plus it’s good molecules it’s 16 it’s super cost effective so this is the pineapple exfoliating powder you mix it with water in the palm of your hand you rub it on your face it makes this really nice frothy milk and i only use this when i’m starting to notice like you know blackheads kind of or just clogged pores you know congestion around you know the kind of tight spots like in my nostril area or like around my chin and stuff spots that i tend to touch too much or food touches or whatever they just tend to be kind of hormonally congested and i find that this really helps to decongest and again i’m not a big fan of like a physical exfoliant but this does not have anything in it that is meant to actually be scratchy it just happens to be a powder and so when you put it with water you could massage it in your hands until it’s just a milk but when you put it on your face at first you feel kind of the texture of the powder but it’s just the pineapple enzymes dissolving on your face so i’ve never noticed any kind of irritation or like scratchiness or redness even afterwards it’s super super gentle but keep that in mind if you’re like totally anti anything gritty being on your face this does like when you first put it on feel a little bit gritty because it’s a powder if i am dealing with a very dry situation or i am dealing with things that just won’t gosh darn heal i talk about that i’ve been talking about this since it came out it came out almost two years ago this is the thrive cosmetics overnight sensation brightening sleep mask this is 62 and for that you get 3.
4 ounces it will last you at least 10 months it is cr i use it almost every single night and it’ll last me like eight months it is amazing stuff you don’t need very much because it is sticky on your skin and so you know if you use a lot you’ll really notice it but like you don’t need to use a lot to get a lot out of it and it is like the only product that i use that can just like rescue my skin overnight where you know i have scabs i’ve picked maybe or that like crepey neck thing i was talking about this genuinely actually does the trick of like it’s chock full of tons and tons and tons of really potent ingredients that just serve to nourish you know it’s like brightening it’s nourishing your skin just drinks it up and i have never once heard from one of you guys that you bought this and were disappointed by it i really believe like this in the icona lab are like the two products that i would recommend for anyone like regardless of skin type you’re gonna get something out of this product it is just that good so yeah that’s my again full-throated endorsement for this it is it is game-changing and finally when i’m having breakouts it’s been known to happen pregnancy is like completely out of my control i rely heavily on this this is just a really really nice go-to and my light stem my light simply acne which i don’t have up here but it is like a red and blue light treatment situation genuinely truly works you know i will leave it on a spot and just roast it you can’t overdo that thing and so you just put it on let it run through its complete cycle on one zips like 30 minutes or whatever um or you can kind of cycle it around as like maintenance but either way huge fan but anyway i’m shocked how long this actual jar has lasted me i use this all the time and there’s still you know i don’t know a quarter of the jar left or something and this is a i don’t know it’s like a tingly decongesting brightening situation for specifically for like you know irritated inflamed skin they used this the first time on me when i went for a facial milk and honey and afterwards i was like what was that because it’s active like you can feel it happening on your face and you can also use it it says as a spot treatment overnight so that’s like what i will kind of see saw it back and forth as i would get out of the shower and if i’m having breakouts and stuff like that it’s actually just really really nice to put this on feel that tingle let it dry and you know and rinse it off and like your skin just feels awesome afterwards there’s no grittiness to this it doesn’t actually have any sort of like scrubby exfoliating properties to it or anything but it also i think has some tea tree oil in it and that’s also contributing to that like antiseptic tingle which is true just really really lovely it does a really really good job and again a very gentle overnight spot treatment um they have a black one a black algae mask that is like their lightning mask that is supposed to be pretty like only using emergencies and they have like a white algae mask that is supposed to be just like more of like a moisturizing mask and so this is right in the middle this is the goldilocks of it all and it works wonders it is beautiful beautiful stuff especially when i’m breaking out so anyway that’s my current skincare routine i hope this is helpful for you guys you have any additional questions down below i’ll try to answer them i have talked about this very recently that i am just i’m not a skincare expert i know my skin and i know my experience talking to my dermatologist and i try to understand what certain ingredients do but if you’re like my skin type is this is this going to work for me i am only taking my best guess talk to a professional i am not a professional so um yeah thank you guys so much for watching if you did enjoy this do give it a thumbs up if you want to keep hanging out me on this channel hit the button down below and subscribe i would love it if you did also guys um subscribe to my vlog channel i am uploading more and more over there lately i will link that below and also follow me on instagram if you can’t find me people told me they can’t find me it’s because my handle is hey khaki and not khaki reviews beauty and so i will link that below as well i’m trying to get to ten thousand so i can get that sacred swipe up so you guys just help me out if you are interested again i’m not gonna say that my instagram is the most exciting place in the world but my stories are pretty fun my stories are pretty fun so uh thank you guys so much for watching and for hanging out with me today i love you guys so much and i’ll see you next time bye you
