O H ⁕  hello, i like skincare and makeup 〰 oily - combination skin ☽ pie-pih ⎯ ☼ mnl, ph ⇸ milkyunigirl@gmail.com

PIE-PIH busters in my stash sans Vitamin C
-
🌞 Of course, sunscreen is still the most important product to combat this -
⏺️PIE (Post Inflammatory Erythema) - it's usually pink/red and takes a while to completely get rid of bc these are dilated capillaries under the skin, and according to researches can only be targeted through pulsed dye lasers, and time!
⏺️PIH (Post Inflammatory Hyperpigmentation) - the most common form of acne scar, usually brown/light brown in color and a lot more responsive to topical treatments that inhibit melanin production

🌾 #TheOrdinary 10% Niacinamide + 1% Zinc
• This kind of let me down with the fading aspect. It's effective in brightening the skin, but contributes a little to fading specific acne scars.
• In my experience, niacinamide is better at reducing redness but when targeting acne scars, Vitamin C is more of a go-to
• If you're trying to control oiliness, this one does a great job in that aspect.
-
🍂 #Mesoestetic Ultimate W+ Whitening Essence
• I've talked about how I liked the ingredients of this essence before (niacinamide, arbutin, kojic acid, BHA) and I can really say that it really delivers when fading FRESH acne scars
• I only use this for spot treating as kojic acid can be potent, but it doesn't feel heavy on the skin and I've seen real progress from using this
-
🌿 #Elujai Propolis Myrrh Ampoule
• It claims to help in fading skin discoloration and with acne, too. For a product that has a lot of claims (including healing), I'm surprised that it really does what it says for a very affordable price
• The effect of this ampoule for me is cumulative, it doesn't seem to do much at first, but once you've used it longer, it's able to deliver. Slow progress but I can see it fading my scars and also shows preventative effects on acne.
-
🏜️ #MakeUpArtistsChoice Fade Serum
• Ingredient list is kind of similar to the W+ essence, but my favorites for this are licorice root extract and resveratrol
• It's a pale yellow serum and when used in conjunction with other MUAC products, it's able to provide what it claims much faster
• I've seen my acne scars fade through this alone albeit a bit slow..

Tonight's routine 🌙 It's only Tuesday and I already feel like I've drained my energy for the whole week. Plus, it's the start of my 🦈 week which is probably why I'm feeling a little lethargic.

📝I haven't written a more in-depth review in weeks, so I should probably do that some time this week.
🦆Current skin trouble: One spot in between my nose area and left eyebrow, which I'm sure I got from too much scratching. It was so itchy, I couldn't stop myself 😂

A totally non-Glossier set of products but just making use of their cute box for 📸 purposes because after all, you have to take care of your base first before anything else. 🤣
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
This will be tonight's routine (05-09-18)
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⚡ Just trying to finish up the Celeteque Hydration Moisturizer and HHN Hydrating Toner. Both of them I don't think I'll repurchase, but these 2 are great local products for people just starting to delve into skincare.
⚡ I really enjoy rolling the Skin Genie Anti-EYEging on my undereyes. Provides enough moisture and hydration to it, but doesn't help with dark circles.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
💸 I think it's been a month since my last skincare purchase and I'm proud of myself for not breaking my no buy. Although I can already feel the itch to bring back something I've been missing in my routine.

🐰 Benton Cacao Moist and Mild Serum

Notable ingredients:
🌠 Antioxidant: Theobroma Cacao Extract, Cacao Seed Extract (limits production of free radicals👌)
🌠 For moisturizing: Sodium Hyaluronate, Cacao Flower Extract, Panthenol, Licorice Root Extract
🌠 For healing and anti-inflammation: Madecassoside, Allantoin, Centella Asiatica Extract, Salix Alba Bark Extract (snail bee essence also has this! ♥️)

🌟 This serum's star ing, Cacao Extract, is found to help in maintaining hydration and elasticity of our skin even when exposed to UV rays to keep it smooth and supple

Thoughts:
💡 This seems like a thick serum when looking at the product inside the bottle, but once dispensed, it transforms to a watery texture which absorbs quickly and doesn't leave me with a sticky residue. Just a few pats and I am done!
🌞 It's summer time here in the PH (it's an annoying kind of hot and humid 😢), and this doesn't feel heavy at all to use in the morning which I doubted at first because of its seemingly thick consistency
🍒 It's a nice thin layer once applied, and definitely something I can also add to my hydrating products at night. Makes my skin feel hydrated with 1-4 drops for my whole face
🌸 Definitely a straightforward serum that aims to hydrate and moisturize my skin (its got 10+ ing. aimed for hydration and moisturization) + I really appreciate that it has centella in it
✔️ Didn't experience any kind of irritation from it at all so I'm happy we jived. When you check it's ing. list on cosdna, the safety, irritation, and comedogenic rating ranges from 1-2! ❣️❣️
💧In the B&A photos, you can see that it doesn't leave any sticky texture afterwards and helps in decreasing the look of my hand's Langer's lines
🔆 Packaging is convenient but the consistency of this serum may sometimes be a bit difficult for the dropper to pick up. It also doesn't have any fragrance which I prefer for my skincare
💌 Thank you so much, @bentoncosmetic for sending this over 💛 Everything I wrote are my honest opinion and thoughts on this product.

Here's my fave duo at the moment! I learned and got this idea of layering these two from @snailycat_ and it's been really effective at keeping period breakouts at bay 💚
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
🌱#CosRx Centella Blemish Cream — It's slowly turning into my HG. I've actually forgotten about repurchasing my beloved A'pieu Madecassoside Cream because this has been working so well! Only downside is, I can't use it in the morning because of its whitecast. Oh wait, I also don't like it's inconvenient packaging 😔, but a little of this cream goes a long waaay ☺️.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I love spreading it on areas where I usually get a lot of redness and where my PIE is concentrated. I didn't expect at all that this would help with that, but it does (and A LOT)! Washing it off in the morning has been a treat because I find that my skin's redness is a lot more tamed.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
🌱#HumanHeartNature Tea Tree Oil — After this dries down, I'd put a thin layer of the centella cream. I think when using them alone, they don't do much for prevention but with both of them combined or layered, it does a pretty good job. Appreciated this a lot more when I started using the centella cream with it. I haven't touched my Benzoyl Peroxide in more than a month now because I tend to reach out more to this.

Sharing to you my skincare wishlist this year ❣️
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I'm trying my best not to do impulse buys for skincare anymore. Posting this to hold myself accountable and to also share my list. Although, I just remembered, I wanted to try Rraw products too while writing this 😅.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Aside from repurchases of my favorites, these 6 would be the only skincare products I can buy for the rest of the year (or at least won't feel guilty purchasing 😂). I have enough in my stash already for this year and I'd like to really observe their effects on my skin rather than adding new ones everytime ☺️
-
RANKED 🔢
1. #ImFrom Honey Mask - Read so much about this and how it leaves people's face smooth and moisturized. It's an HG for many and I am dying from curiosity.
2. #Kikumasamune High Moist Lotion - I'd love to try another hydrating toner and this big bottle contains ceramides, arbutin, and rice ferments.
3. #AliveLab Centella Powder - Teeny tiny product that can be added to cleansers, moisturizes, etc. Always up for centella products and this seems so versatile.
4. #CosRx Honey Overnight Mask - Actually torn between this and the rice variant. It's in a gel consistency and would love to have a more hydrating sleeping mask.
5. #KraveBeauty Kale-lalu-yAHA - My current AHA is mandelic acid, and although it's good and effective, I'd like to move up to Glycolic in a formulation good for beginners. Plus, it's from Liah Yoo, I mean that's already enough reason haha!
6. #CosRx BHA Overnight Mask - Recently added! This seems super gentle and a good preventative product for clogged pores. I actually haven't seen a local retailer of this yet.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
That's about it. I've thought this through a lot because I wanted a final list that I can follow for this year if ever I'd get the itch buy a new skincare. 💓

Short PM Routine tonight 04·16·18 🌠
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I'm feeling kinda sick because of temperature changes from the super hot weather to air conditioned rooms 😰. Drinking Vitamin C and flu relief capsules to combat this heavy feeling in my head and body. Being sick in this kind of weather is the worst 😶.

⚡ Lazy night routine ⚡
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Picking out my faves from the stash. It's sooo hot today, I'm not in the mood for long routines ☹️ Also, my back is sweating so much at the moment 🙃
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
#Mebika Moisture Lotion
• I'm really sad that this is almost empty. I may or may not have 2 weeks left for this huge toner. I've tried to save it long enough 😂
• I'm thinking of trying out new ceramide products but also torn because this is super convenient to use
• When I feel much lazier, I just it alone after washing my face and that's already the end of my routine
• Plus, ceramide products are the best things to use after doing my mandelic peel at home
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
🐌#CosRx Snail Mucin Essence
• My snail buddy for life. I've already expressed my love for this essence multiple times already 😅
• Calms redness, effectively hydrates, heals my wounds (which I usually get on my fingers when i try to cook), and just generally a go-to product for me
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
🍉#Snoe Watermelon Seed Oil
• Decreases my sebum production and has a high % of linoleic acid that's effective and recommended for oily people like me
• Love this as the last step of my routine because I feel like it seals off everything and just moisturizes me well
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
These 3 would probably be what I'll pack if I can only bring 3 products minus my period acne busters 🌞
