Yep!! 🍷🕯🛁

First of all there is a difference between Squalane and Squalene. Squalene is naturally occurring in our skin’s sebum and hence is a part of our skin’s own moisturizers. Squalene is also an antioxidant and is a precursor for steroids. The most common confusion (I didn’t know the difference for a long time either) is between Squalane and Squalene. You can buy both Squalene and Squalane, both are nowadays mostly vegetable derived. But Squalane is a stabilized form of Squalene. Unfortunately this means it lacks the antioxidant capacity of Squalene. .
Ok, so why buy Squalane and not Squalene? Well, you don’t have too! But Squalene oxidizes easily when exposed to light. When it oxidizes certain reactions/breakdown products form that can trigger inflammation (bad news!). Some research also suggest that people with acne have elevated levels of Squalene in their sebum that may then trigger inflammation by this process. Applying squalane is hence safer and it also has a longer shelf life. .
Because of its structure Squalane is an excellent oil as a moisturizer/occlusive for all skin types, even oily and acne prone. My experience is that Dermatologists disagree whether or not to use oil and or oil containing moisturizers when you have oily skin. It depends: if you dry out your skin with foaming cleansers you might have to add some oil but if you use very gentle non stripping cleansers an oil-free product might be all you need if you have truly oily skin. In my own experience oils should be used in small quantities, 2-3 small drops is all you need (and not a replacement for humectant based products). I have seen friends and family members go bananas when they incorporate a lovely fragrant oil blend and literally apply a tablespoon thinking more is better. This can cause brake outs (I have witnessed this myself). The skin is not a Swiss schnitzel (!) it can not soak up an ocean of butter. Applying too much can lead to clogged pores, acne brake and milia. .
.
Don’t get me wrong, oils are great when used properly! Squalane almost has the texture of something between a gel and silicon. It absorbs really well and leaves a velvet finish and a healthy glow.

This month's @pearlesquebox featured four full-sized products from @organictogreen. I got my introduction to this brand via the now defunct @satvabeautybox. I sampled the Rose Coco Oil, which works as a makeup remover or lightweight body oil. In the June box, subscribers are fortunate enough to sample two full-sized Coco Oils in the scents Lemon and Jasmine Ylang-Ylang. The composition varies slightly from formula to formula. For example, the lemon body oil has red raspberry seed oil while the jasmine version does not. I enjoyed the rose body oil, so I'm sure I'm going to enjoy these two as well. There is a very simple body scrub consisting of just coconut oil and sucrose. I like gritty sugar-based scrubs, so I know this will be a hit as well. Lastly there is a vanilla-scented moisturizer that works great as a light weight body moisturizer. While this is in balm form, I find that the coconut oil texture comes through and it becomes a very thin oil upon contact with skin. Overall, I thought this box offered great value and plenty of product. What were your thoughts? Which product did you get the most use out of?

Sooooooo I did a thing... I’m sorry, but you can hardly expect me to have any form of self restraint with a release like this. If we’re honest, it’s a miracle I didn’t buy the whole collection. It took some SERIOUS self-control to not pick up the highlighter and eyeshadow palette. Self-control with a sprinkling of I LITERALLY HAD NO FUNDS.... Back to the product. I’ve been using it for a week now and I’m going to lie- I’m obsessed. Don’t want to speak on it too much yet since it hasn’t been that long. But I just have to put it out there. I’m already addicted! Have you tried it yet?

I blame #instagram for this but all for the good reasons this time! It was pure coincidence spotting this brand, completely new for me, and at first i have to admit it was the bottles that grabbed my attention!
I went onto their website a had a good look around and i knew i want the #oilcleanser
To my surprise, i received my order from @desavery_ just now, i ordered yesterday ( how quick is that!) there was a lovely letter from the founder Andrea Dinnick, telling me that she put a couple of samples as well! Thank you!!!
The SMOOTH serum is packed with low molecular hyaluronic acid! I know I'll love it!
The LIT serum is something I'm looking forward to try! The main ingredient is Prickly pear, which i love! It have highest levels of antioxidants, amino acids, Vit E( 150% more than in argan oil) phytosterols and polyphenols found in any other plant oil! The Prickly pear oil and extract is infamous for its ability to fight against environmental pollution and repair UV damage! So this is a very exciting product for me!
I love when skin care products combine not only the health benefits but also gives me that feeling of pleasure and comfort!

Here’s a once in a lifetime haircare post. I basically never talk much about hair products, I don’t know why considering Ive actually been investing a lot this past year. I recently worked through these @philip_kingsley travel sizes. I’ve been doing no heat for a few months now, so I really notice how well products can work to make my air dried hair still look good and this threesome seriously worked. Whenever I used these three, my hair stayed smooth and curled naturally in a beautiful way. I definitely have my eye on a jumbo size elasticizer, but my bank account certainly has its eyes elsewhere...
🌿
Have you tried Philip Kingsley? And actually- can you guys help a bitch out? My hair has been getting even oilier than usual. I’m desperate for a product that can stop my roots from getting so oily without drying out the lengths of my hair. And yes/ I do avoid overwashing my hair, I typically wash it twice a week or even once! And I focus my shampoo on my roots and my conditioner on my ends. I just feel like I do everything right and yet here we are!!

Five hours of sniffing with perfumer @samuelgravan! Anyone have coffee beans? 😂

TGIF! My today's morning serum+SPF duo! 😊 It was bright and sunny in the morning; and as soon as I was ready to step out in the sun, it became dark and cloudy! Lol! Does it happen with you guys? 😃
Anyway, love this @demamielskin duo! Have you tried it?

Trying new teas and loving this @harneyteas in Pumpkin Spice! Reminds of Christmas before Christmas 💖💖💖💖

By eating healthy and choosing wisely what to eat and when to eat, I have now become more aware of my mood and food 😀😀😀😀! It's a bit time consuming to prepare two sets of meal every time I cook but at the same time it's really important to take care of myself as an individual to take care of the family! Today I feel more energetic and happy eating two meals a day compared to what I was eating two weeks back, which was like 4-6 small meals. Also, I reward myself once in 7 days for being good by eating what I feel I had craved for in my "strict days" of diet control. It is diet control that I love to follow and not dieting. I haven't really started practising yoga since I have shifted to my new condo but will soon start it. So don't be surprised if you see some pics of yoga poses on my IG!!!! Have a wonderful rest of the week. Am already looking forward to the weekend 💟💟💟💟💟

Almost regram (but this photo lost in front of another last time). This guy is almost empty now (my 2nd bottle). What should I try next? Do you have any favorite caffeine skincare products? .
.
I have featured this caffeine solution in many posts. I don’t use it as an eye serum but as a hydrating and antioxidant serum or booster for a moisturizer! I think it is a great humectant rich serum (meaning it hydrate and plumps the skin) along having antioxidants like caffeine and green tea. Caffeine is also used in skincare for its supposedly constricting effects but I would not rely on this if your concern is puffy eyes. I am just not convinced by the data. But it doesn’t mean it is a bad ingredient nor that this formula is bad. It just depends on what you expect from it. I feel this soothes my skin, actually helps a bit with redness, and is really hydrating! Antioxidants in skincare is promising and I think they are a positive addition to a formula but they are perhaps not the magicians we might have been told! .
.
Do you look for caffeine in skincare? Do you know of a product you would like to recommend or something you would like me to try and review?

In the spirit of the @beccacosmetics x @chrissyteigen round 2- I thought I’d give whip out my palette. I wanted this so badly I was beyond obsessed. My angel of a friend hooked a bitch up and got me it and it was all I used for weeks. Then, somehow I set it aside and it began to gather dust. I haven’t used it in so long so I’m thinking to get back to it this week and see if I fall back in love. Have you tried the palette out?
