Mรกrcia  ๐Ÿ‡ช๐Ÿ‡บEU-based scientific researcher w/ nerd quest: find & streamline effective skincare for happy skin [30+ combo acne-prone] ๐Ÿ“ฉskinminimalist7@gmail.com

โ€ข SHOW ME YOUR SKINCARE AND I WILL SHOW YOU WHO YOU ARE โ€ข
-
In 2015, a show-me-your-skincare-storage type of challenge made me realized that my skincare wardrobe was a collection that required 2 cabinets and one drawer for storage. I barely could use all my beloved (and sometimes expensive) products. Plus, despite all the money invested, my skin was not in happy place and choosing my routine took longer than it should. That's when I decided to streamline my skincare and my rule of thumb was: "It has to fit in ONE SINGLE CABINET" (not a giant one, ok? That's cheating). Sounds so simple, yet so hard. I read Dermatology and Cosmetic scientific reports as hobby to learn about recent advances in the field and I also enjoy reading about the beauty industry, which most times leads to laughs about exaggerated claims & posh names that rarely grasps any scientific truth; occasionally, I find very interesting brand/product that pokes my interest and I feel the immediate urge to buy & test. This quickly led to a collection that (in my opinion) was too large to be effective.
-
During 2016, I made an effort to reduce it by using most of what I had (check #skinminimalist_shelfie ) and started the #1empty1newbie to keep myself from going back to impulsive purchases and hopefully inspire others to join this adventure:
-
๐Ÿ“ŒKEEP YOUR SKINCARE WARDROBE SIZE: buy only after finishing an equivalent product from your cabinet - aka the #1empty1newbie (a strategy that some of you already know & follow ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜˜)
-
๐Ÿ“ŒPICK FAVORITES: occasionally, I manage to finish 2 oldies and buy only one (yey!), which leads to:
โ€ข more cabinet space
โ€ข more use of my faves (no daunting quest to finish products I don't like)
โ€ข faster routine (less to pick from saves time for that extra facial massage)
โ€ข money saved
โ€ข more skin benefits (from consistent use of actives)
โ€ข it is liberating (I own my skincare and not the other way around)
-
During 2017, I became more restricted in terms of purchases but I also received some PR samples. My cabinet looks much better but still needs further curation!

#1empty1newbie | Night oils with retinol / retinoid โœจ
-
I am not the biggest user of oils and over the past 2 years, I've learned (the hard way): I don't go through oils as fast as I go through creams. Consequently, I accumulated several oil options when (ideally) I should only have one!!! I will write about my "normal oils" on another post and today Iโ€™ll focus on oils that contain retinoids. This photo was taken in August but only now I am writing about it ร  here we go:
-
๐Ÿ“ŒEMPTY 1:
#medik8 Retinol 3TR - this is a generous sample size that I bought for 2โ‚ฌ in a Swiss online retailer: it is a oil-based serum (jojoba oil) that contains 0.3% pure all-trans retinol w/ time-release technology (improves stability, minimizes irritation & ensures effective absorption) supported by tocopherol acetate (VitE - an antioxidant that helps to protect skin from free radical damage and acts as stabilizer for vitamin A). I think this is an amazing gentle option for those that love to use their actives hosted in oil but... I prefer to use retinol / retinoid in water-based formula. That being said, I would have no doubts in suggesting this option to a friend. Simple INCI, fair price & great product.
-
๐Ÿ“ŒEMPTY 2:
#sundayriley Luna Sleeping night oil: this was a #IGmademedoit โ€“ an impulsive purchase that I regret. I got excited w/ all the amazing reviews, the blue color, the new retinoid (at the time - late 2015, I haven't tried any product w/ hydroxypinacolone retinoate - the same retinoid used in the P&M superstar and The Ordinary adv. retinoid). This not a bad product but is seriously overpriced, the smell is quite unpleasant, it contains blue dye (when I bought it, I thought the blue color came from the Blue Tansy oil โ€“ the dye was not listed online) andโ€ฆ it did nothing to my skin, except for basic moisturization. It took me 1 year and 7 months to finish it because I just did not reached for it anymore.

#1empty1newbie | "heavy-duty" cleansers
-
Over the last couple days, Vicky (@skincaremagpie) and Farah (@beamwonder) posted super interesting posts about surfactants and cleansers, which reminded me that I havenโ€™t reviewed these 2 emptiesโ€ฆ
-
๐Ÿ“ŒEMPTY 1:
#sundayriley Ceramic Slip: I said several times and Iโ€™ll say it again โ€“ itโ€™s my fave clay-based cleanser. Itโ€™s gentle, has great pH (pH 5.5), mildly foamy and helps preventing skin congestion without drying out my skin, which most clay-based cleansers do. It contains 2 types of clays - french green clay (Montmorillonite) & moroccan lava clay (Rhassoul) and, together w/ gentle surfactants, it deep cleans while removing impurities and tightening the appearance of pores. It also contains ascorbyl palmitate (VitC Ester - nice addition but I don't think it does much because the pH is too high for it to work and itโ€™s only on my skin for few secs). Although I canโ€™t smell any oil, this formula contains several - neroli, black pepper fruit, frankincense, jasmine and sandalwood โ€“ how strange is that? Overall, this is a very good cleanser for acne-prone skin and can be mixed w/ Good Gene to make a descongestion/brightening mask ๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿป Will I repurchase? Maybe not... but only because it is quite pricey and my face is currently happy w/ weekly use of a clay mask & daily use of other great cleansers like #isclinical Cleansing Complex.
-
๐Ÿ“ŒEMPTY 2 / NEWBIE:
#niod Sanskrit Saponins โ€“ SS (finished a 180mL-tube and opened a 90mL-tube that came w/ Black Friday set). Most NIOD products have โ€œmysterious namesโ€ and SS is no exception - what are saponins? The term "saponins" is derived from the Latin word "sapo" which means soap (wait, don't freak out ๐Ÿ˜ฑ! - keep reading, good news will come). Saponins consist of a lipophilic and water-insoluble steroid, steroid alkaloid or triterpene structure and ligated hydrophilic, water-soluble sugar molecules. Simultaneously lipophilic and hydrophilic substances are called amphiphilic substances - a feature shared w/ emulsifiers and tensides and the prerequisite for their cleansing characteristics (see? I told you there were good news coming ๐Ÿค“).

SKINCARE PM ROUTINE
-
๐Ÿ“Œ1. DOUBLE CLEANSE: โ€ข 1st cleanse w/ #jordansamuel Pliรฉ: I apply a small amount on dry face, massage it, then damp my hands and keep massaging my face while Pliรฉ emulsifies and removes all the SPF & make up (this is the only product that competes w/ the performance of my fave balm-cleansers as 1st cleanser - love it and use it in rotation w/ #clinique TTDO balm; โ€ข 2nd cleanse w/ #isclinical Honey Warming Cleanser - a newbie in my routines: smells like raw honey, it feels sticky but once you start massaging it to activate the warming sensation it gains some slip; I am not sure how well it cleanses my skin - but is definitely very nourishing. It's a water-less formula but once mixed with water it reaches a pH of 6.5 (however I only use water to rinse it off, so ph does not really apply here). Other options I would use in this step: #Cerave Hydrating Cleanser, #isclinical Cleansing Complex, su:m37 Rose Miracle Cleansing Stick, #niod SS...
-
๐Ÿ“Œ2. PREVENT:
After cleanse, I apply #niod CAIS โ€“ a copper-peptide serum that should be applied before acid toners (as vestigial acid toner will "destroy" copper peptides). Copper peptides (not copper itself!) improves several skin basic functions and gives long-term anti-aging benefits. PS: this is probably my favorite face serum ๐Ÿ’™
-
[EXFOLIATION]: I only use chemical exfoliants every other night (max 4x times a week). Usually my GO-TOs are Lotion P50, PC BHA2% or Good Genes. However, during the last 12 days, I have been testing #niod Non-acid Acid Precursor - NAAP (full description in a recent #1empty1newbie post) everyday but started to see congestion on my nose & chin ๐Ÿ˜žso, I will keep using it but on rotation w/ another newbie - #geekandgorgeous 6% PHA + BHA*: a super watery acid toner that combines 5% PHA + 1% BHA - it feels like nothing on the skin (does not have the "greasy feeling" of PC BHA2%) but lets see if 1% BHA is enough to keep my congested skin under control (otherwise, I will re-stock my oldie but goodie PC 2% BHA).

๐Ÿ“ŒEMPTY:
#paulaschoice Resist Omega+ Complex: I won this bottle through a giveaway organized by @roadtoglow (who btw is now hosting a PC C15 booster giveaway) but Omega was already on my wish list ๐Ÿ˜‰! I know this is called a serum but is so nourishing & creamy that Works perfectly as a lightweight day-moisturizer for my combo skin! It ticks all the boxes for me: lots of omegas, ceramides, nourishing oils, several humectants, antioxidants & is fragrance-free --> you can check #skinminimalist_Omega_vs_LG for a detailed ingredient-list-breakdown of PC Omega Complex in comparison w/ Liquid Gold by @stratiaskin (another great moisturizer that I love to use at night). Plus, it comes in an opaque pump-bottle (a pump that I now repurposed for my #niod Survival)! It truly nourishes without feeling heavy or breaking me out so Iโ€™ll def. repurchase it ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿปbut will wait until I have 2 more PC products to order ๐Ÿค“meanwhile Iโ€™ll finish other products...
-
๐Ÿ“Œ"NEWBIEโ€:
#cerave PM lotion โ€“ is not a true newbie to me; in fact this is an old fave โ€“ Iโ€™ve went through several bottles of this supper affordable moisturizer. Itโ€™s called PM only because it does not have contain SPF (CeraVe also sells an AM lotion that contains SPF); however, I have combo skin and my skin will feel too greasy if I apply 2 tablespoons of moisturizer w/ SPF ; I much prefer to apply a smaller amount of moisturizer without SPF and then generously layer a dedicated SPF on top. This is the best moisturizer I ever tried on its price category (less than $10 for 88,7mL / 3oz) as it contains 3 types of ceramides, cholesterol, niacinamide, humectants (sodium hyaluronate, glycerin, etc) and other nourishing ingredients all combined in a gel-cream formula that is hosted in a travel-friendly pump-bottle ๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿป! I stopped using CeraVe Pm lotion to test the Omega Complex but I am happy to have it on my routines again. I havenโ€™t tried his will also be a future repurchase. PS: it does contain dimethicone and 2 parabens (none of these is a deal-breaker for me but it might be for some of you).
โ€“
Future strategy: buy Omega after I finish CeraVe and then buy Cerave after finishing the Omega... ๐Ÿ™ˆ

AM SKINCARE ROUTINE โ˜€๏ธ
-
I usually do not post my skincare routines very frequently because my routines are pretty consistent & consequently boring to post on a daily basis. However, here's my latest AM routine:
-
๐Ÿ“Œ1. CLEANSE: #isclinical Cleansing Complex (lightweight cleansing gel cleanser, pH 5.4, great for combo / congested / acne-prone skin, it contains mild resurfacing ingredients (do not confuse w/ harsh surfactants) that thoroughly cleanse the surface and pores of the skin without stripping essential natural oils. note: I also love using su:m37 miracle rose stick or niod sanskrit saponins as AM cleansers.
-
๐Ÿ“Œ2. PREVENT: #niod Superoxide Dismutase Saccharide Mist: a 1st layer of antioxidants before applying #skinceuticals CE Ferulic - serum w/ 15% L-ascorbic acid + Ferulc acid + VitE. There are several other VitC derivatives available in the market but I personally see better results from daily use of L-AA, which has been proved to boost collagen production, help fade dark spots, even skin tone, improve firmness, protect form oxidative stress (caused by UV rays, pollution, etc) and it can even boost the power of your sunscreen. Skinceuticals CE Ferulic is quite expensive but the Timeless C+E+Ferulic or the PC C15 booster are great alternatives (note: I've used several bottles of the former & can't wait to try the latter - which is now also available in EU).
[optional: I usually make a 5-min break here to let the VitC sink in while I prepare my morning coffee]
-
๐Ÿ“Œ3. HYDRATE: sometimes, I will spritz my face again w/ #niod SDSM to damp my skin before applying my hydration serum - #niod Multi-Molecular Hyaluronic Complex (MMHC2) all over my face/neck; this hyaluronic powerhouse contains 15 hyaluronic complexes + HA precursor that stimulate HA production by your skin; it is a very watery serum that disappears on the skin but confers deep hydration; however, keep in mind that this serum does not contain texture enhancers or humectants w/ thicker texture like glycerin that can give that feeling of skin-surface hydration; you will feel the need to apply something rich in omegas/ceramides/emollients to lock in that hydration.

#1empty1newbie | gentle exfoliation?
-
๐Ÿ“ŒEMPTY
#stratia AHA Soft Touch: a 10% mandelic acid gel that spreads beautifully on the skin and promotes gentle chemical exfoliation (if you want to know more about mandelic acid, I highly recommend you to read the #RTGIngredientSpotlight by @roadtoglow โ€“ look for the post about mandelic acid / review of this @stratiaskin product). I bought this product after finding out that mandelic acid is not only the gentlest AHA but is also oil soluble (like BHA) ๐Ÿ˜ฎ๐Ÿ˜ -which means that although gentle it has the potential to prevent skin congestion. Besides mandelic acid, it also contains several soothing (aloe, camomile, allantoin) and moisturizing (panthenol, glycerin, sodium hyaluronate) ingredients. I used it as my exclusive chemical exfoliant for almost 2 months but unfortunately, this product alone was not enough to keep my congestion-prone skin under control. I finished this bottle in rotation w/ other chemical exfoliators (like Lotion P50W & PC BHA 2%). Overall, AHA Soft Touch felt more moisturizing than exfoliating - which is great if you have super sensitive skin that does not tolerate strong acid toners ๐Ÿ‘but it was not optimal for my skin concerns (will not repurchase) ๐Ÿ˜

๐Ÿ“ŒNEWBIE
#niod Non-Acid Acid Precursor (NAAP) - another NIOD confusing name - well, it is called "non-acid" because acids like AHAs, BHA or PHAs are not added to the formula (remember that the philosophy of NIOD - Non-Invasive Options in Dermal-science ๐Ÿ˜‰) - hence the attempt to promote exfoliation without the redness and inflammation associated with acids; and it's called an "acid precursor" because it contains fermentation bio-derivatives (mainly Lactococcus ferment lysate) and amino isolates that act as acid precursors, encouraging a gentle chemical exfoliation. How? Not much is yet studies but probiotic bacterial lysates are know to contain hyaluronic acid (known humectant), lipotechoic acid & peptidoglycan (induce production of antimicrobial peptides - why is this good? think of acne-related bacteria), lactic acid (gentle AHA that also has moisturizing properties), acetic acid (anti bacterial), etc...

๐Ÿ“ŒEMPTY 1
#maylindstrom The Pendulm Potion (deluxe sample): like all ML products this is an ode to the senses... Plus, I love the base oil used in this formula - tamanu oil (an oil w/ amazing healing properties), followed by camellia seed, macadamia, avocado, olive oil, etc). It is a beautiful oil blend but it also contains essential oils (which make this oil blend smell like heaven - I particularly love the scent of sweet orange essential oil but... be aware that those can cause irritation). That being said, the majority of oils in TPS are super nourishing and can be used by most skin types. It works great on its own but I preferred to use a few drops mixed w/ a scoop of Clinique TTDO balm - this way I could upgrade a "joyless balm" to a "May experience" and made my TPP sample last longer ๐Ÿ˜‰โ–ช๏ธWill I repurchase? See answer at the end of the post.

#skinesis Sarah Chapman Ultimate Cleanse (travel size - 15mL): a cleanser I've been dying to try since @skintrovert raved about it and gave it a holy grail status!!! Ultimate is a balm formula but comes in an airless pump bottle (a-ma-zing!), it has a super smooth texture and emulsifies beautifully. It combines omega rich oils (baobab and borage oils), antioxidants with anti-aging actives (collagen boosting Dermaxylโ„ข peptide, VitA, VitC powered rosehip, meadowfoam, abyssinian and jojoba oils. However, it also contains a unique refreshing essential-oil blend of camphor, neroli, chamomile, jasmine & rose (again, there is irritation potential... and it might sting some sensitive eyes). Ultimate Cleanse is frequently compared w/ Emma Hardie Moringa balm but I prefer the latter. โ–ช๏ธWill I repurchase? See answer at the end of the post.

#deciem The Ordinary 2% advanced retinoid (now renamed to Granactive Retinoid 2% Emulsion)
โ€ข is it really 2%? No, it's 0.29% retinoids!
-
AR 2% is a milky serum that contains a mix of 2 retinoids: "solubilized Hydroxypinacolone Retinoate at a concentration of 1.9%โ€ and โ€œpure retinol in the encapsulated system is used at 0.1% for a total combined retinoid actives of 2%โ€. I was also informed that the โ€œencapsulated system is used to provide sustained delivery and efficacy of the solubilized hydroxypinacolone retinoate and is included in the total concentration of activesโ€.
-
Iโ€™ve used it as a daily retinoid serum because it is gentle enough to be used every day (donโ€™t be scared by the โ€œ2%โ€ of its name because most of its strength comes from the 1.9% hydroxypinacolone retinoate solution - the same retinoid ester used in SR Luna oil and P&M superstar oil - which is a gentler than retinol). Plus, the solution of hydroxypinacolone retinoate only includes 10% of the retinoid (more about that bellow). Retinol esters are often used in cosmetics because they are more stable & have a lower potential for skin irritation but... However, are also considered less effective. That being said, I loved to use AR 2% in rotation w/ stronger forms of VitA โ€“ like 1% retinol (alternating between the 2 works great is great if your skin does not tolerate daily use of 1% retinol) ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿป
-
After finishing a 30-mL-bottle of AR 2%, I rated it as one of my TOP 3 products by The Ordinary among those Iโ€™ve tested (swipe to see TOP3) because the formula very gentle on the skin; I could use it on daily basis without experiencing any signs of irritation (no tingling, no redness, no dryness ๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿป!!!) and the watery-milky formula is so pleasant to apply on the skin! I think this is a great option for sensitive skin types, for retinoids-newbies and for all of you that want to have a gentler retinoid option to alternate w/ stronger options. Plus, it's so affordable that makes #takeittothetits possible ๐Ÿ˜‰
-
I was about to repurchase it when I saw a blog post by @m.skinci that mentioned that the 2% retinoid formula might only represent a strength of 0.29% retinoids. How >>> CONTINUED IN THE 1ST COMMENT ๐Ÿ‘‡๐Ÿป๐Ÿ‘‡๐Ÿป๐Ÿ‘‡๐Ÿป

#1empty1newbie | Leave-on chemical exfoliant
-
๐Ÿ“ŒEMPTY 1:
@paulaschoice 2% BHA Skin Perfecting Liquid: my fave only-BHA (beta hydroxy acid) product! I've used several bottles! It's a water-based formula (pH 3.2-3.8) w/ 2% salicylic acid (=BHA), 2 hydrating ingredients (methylpropanediol and butylene Glycol), green tea extract (soothing / antioxidant) --> a simple formula that provides great results: removes dead skin cells, prevents clogged pores (which usually leads to its enlarged appearance), prevents blackheads and closed comedones, which overall results prevents my skin from becoming dull & congested. Despite looking and feeling like water, it leaves a slight "oily feel" on the skin but it fades after a few min (yes, if I have the time, I wait 10-20 min before moving on with the rest of my routine). It is affordable & effective otherwise I would not keep repurchasing it over & over.
-
๐Ÿ“ŒEMPTY 2
@biologique_recherche Lotion P50W - among all the versions of Lotion P50, P50W is the gentlest: it is a water-based formula with pH3 and a total of 9% acid-blend (malic, lactic, gluconolactone, citric, physic and salicylic). I felt the so-called tingling but it was never strong, it never felt like a burn and my face never turned tomato-red after using, which makes me believe that this is gentle enough to be used by most skin types (incl. sensitive skin โ€“ but please patch-test first). Besides the acids, this cult product also contains glycerin, niacinamide (great for skin pigmentation concerns and has an anti-inflammatory effect that can help w/ acne), horseradish extract (antibacterial properties that help regulate sebum production), capsicum extract (purifying and antiseptic), burdock extract (moisturizing, healing and calming; great ingredient to balance combo skin because it hydrating dry zones while purifying and regulating oily areas), magnesium chloride (healing, antiseptic w/ sebum-regulating qualities), arnica extract (soothing, protective and anti-inflammatory) and a few other moisturizing / soothing ingredients (that I believe are exclusive of this version like allantoin, urea, lactates, etc).

Yes, I finished all these products in August. I will not make detailed reviews here but full-sized & travel-sized products will get their "proper review" in future #1empty1newbie posts

CLEANSERS:
โœ…#sundayriley Ceramic Slip: love this clay-based cleanser: gentle, low-pH, a pleasure to use and helps to prevent congestion. I will repurchase (not right now though)!
-
๐Ÿ†—#niod Sanskrit Saponins: contrarily to most people, I like the texture & weird smell but I can't use it everyday (because it dries out my skin); however, if used every other day on damp skin, it does a great job preventing congestion. Not planning to repurchase but I still have another tube of it to go through (that came in a NIOD set) and will happily use it!
-
๐Ÿ†—#demamiel Pure Calm Cleansing Dew and #maylindstrom Pendulum Potion: both are, by far, the loveliest cleansing oils I ever tried (get the job done, smell like heaven & do not sting my eyes) but I will probably not repurchase because I prefer cleansing balms and price tag; honestly, I mainly loved them for the sensorial experience (which can also be achieved by adding a tiny scoop of #maylindstrom Blue cocoon to my #clinique TTDO balm).
-
๐Ÿ†—#skinesis Sarah Chapman Skinesis Ultimate Cleanse (travel-size): caught my attention because it was frequently compared w/ Emma Hardie Moringa balm cleanser (which I love) and highly praised by @skintrovert ; love the pump-bottle format but I was not โ€œWOWedโ€ by it: does a similar job to clinique TTDO balm and I was not a big fan of its scent (I prefer the scent of EH Balm). Will not repurchase.
-
EXFOLIANTS:
๐Ÿ†—#stratia Soft Touch AHA (10% mandelic acid gel): super gentle formula, ideal for sensitive skin that cannot tolerate strong AHAs or BHA. However, on its own, this is not enough to prevent congestion on my skin ๐Ÿ˜; PC BHA2% or Lotion P50 are better fits for my skin type. However, it is great option if you are on the hunt for a gentle exfoliator. This bottle not yet empty but I'll gift the remaining 30% to a friend that wants to give it a try.
