I shared my wishlist almost a month ago and I was good at not adding products to it 😬but life happens (so dramatic) and.. well now I want to try brands I've never tried before!
.
So.. What's your current wishlist??

These three products together have made the biggest 'positive' change on my skin, they have reduced the amount of breakouts and the amount of pesky bumps and blemishes I had ❤️ of course my skin is not perfect by any means but now it's much smoother and softer (even my mom noticed it today 🙊)
.
Ps. My skin is not sensitive. And I know I can use all of them together, but if I feel it's too much I'll stop and use more hydrating/soothing products.
.
.
#isclinical Cleansing Complex - best cleanser for acne/blemish-prone skin I have ever tried. I use it once every day.
.
#paulaschoice 2% BHA - For my combination skin I like this liquid BHA better than the 'skin perfecting'. I don't use this every because I feel is a bit much, but I'll use it every other day.
.
#jordansamuelskin Étoile with Retinol - This oil contains 0.2% retinol so it's gentle enough for everyday use - only during the evening though (at least for me and my mom), if used consistently you'll definitely see results, for me it has helped brighten my skin.

07/12 evening routine 🌙
.
I've been using étoile with retinol for 5 nights in a row and I'm really really liking it. When I first got it I wasn't too sure about it, but now that I'm being consistent with it, I'm seeing some results (my face looks smoother the next morning, I'm guessing is the combo of the oil with the iS Clinical cleanser) 👌🏽
.
.
⭐️#farmacybeauty Green Clean - my favorite oil-based cleanser at the moment.
.
⭐️#isclinical Cleansing Complex.
.
⭐️1 pump of #stratia Liquid Gold mixed with 4 drops of #jordansamuelskin étoile with retinol.

07/11 morning routine ☀️
.
.
☀️#glossier Milky Jelly Cleanser.
.
☀️#madhippie Vitamin C Serum - This is a great serum, some of the ingredients that it contains are:
- Sodium Ascorbyl Phosphate (which is a stable form of Vitamim C)
- Hyaluronic Acid
- Ferulic Acid
- Vitamin E
I stopped using it because I started with the cosrx one but I think I like this one better, I like that it's not so watery and that I don't have to use it as fast as the other one (the cosrx one contains Ascorbic Acid).
Even though you won't see results as fast, if you use it consistently you'll definetely see them, I think this one is a good option for those with sensitive skin. 🍊

☀️#paulaschoice Redness Relief.

For the last few nights - 3 to be more specific - I've been using this routine, it has worked so well, my skin feels much smoother. So for now this will continue to be my evening routine (maybe not the BHA everyday though) - at least until the new products arrive 🙈😳

⭐️#jordansamuelskin Plié as my first cleanse.
.
⭐️#isclinical Cleansing Complex as second cleanse.
.
⭐️#paulaschoice Clear 2% BHA *waited about 10 minutes before next step*
.
⭐️1 pump of #paulaschoice Redness Relief.
.
⭐️1 pump of #stratia Liquid Gold mixed with 3 drops of Étoile with retinol.

✨ Liquid Gold ✨
.
.
I love it, but why? Well.. first off - like the @stratiaskin website says - the product itself fortifies your skin moisture barrier, so it helps to strengthen, soothe and hydrate the skin.
.
I also love that it contains some of my favorite ingredients, like:
.
- Ceramides:
They hold skin cells together, forming a protective layer that plumps the skin and retains moisture.
.
- Sodium Hyaluronate:
Is a water-soluble salt form of hyaluronic acid and it is a smaller molecule than hyaluronic acid - allowing it to easily penetrate the skin - and again helping your skin to retain moisture while reducing trans-epidermal water loss.
.
- Niacinamide:
Is a water-soluble vitamin (vitamin B3) and it helps by visibly improving the appearance of enlarged pores and fine lines. It's a great skin brightener thanks to it’s excellent cell renewing properties, it helps with uneven skin tone and dullness.
.
And of course the blend of oils it has: Squalane, Rosehip, Sea Buckthorn and Cranberry!! ❤️
.
I use it all the time but it is perfect when my skin is feeling irritated or when it's feeling particularly dry or dehydrated.
.
Ps. I know that for some people it causes congestion!
.
Ps2. I contains Parabens, so if that's something you mind, well.. this product is not for you 😬

07/06 evening routine 🌙
.
Today I had 2 exams and I'm a procrastinator, so I was trying to study everything yesterday at the last minute when I should've studied during the weekend 👌🏽 but oh well.. I went to class running on maybe 2 hours or less of sleep and as soon as I came home I went to bed and finally rested a bit 💤 (just like 2 hours though, so not much........)
.
Oh and I was almost forgetting, I didn't wash my face yesterday I didn't do an evening routine, I slept with sunscreen and everything 😥
