  • CeraVe-Hydrating Facial Cleanser For Normal To Dry Skin

    Took me a while to get used to this gentle formula after using Neutrogena’s Oil Free Salicylic Acid Acne Fighting Face Wash which was very drying. I like how gentle and effective this cleanser is on my skin.

    I have recently been obsessed with Glow Recipe’s product line. I really like the smell and texture of this toner. It is not astringent at all. It is tacky in texture and has a soft watermelon smell which I love. I haven’t had a lot of experience with using toners so I am excited to try new brands.
  • Caudalie-Resveratrol Lift Hyaluronic Acid Eye Lifting Balm

    I have dark circles around my eyes 👀 so I would probably be better off with an eye cream with Vitamin C, caffeine or hyaluronic acid. Nevertheless this eye cream is very hydrating and non-irritating to my eyes. 
  • Dear Brightly-Prescription Retinoid Cream

    This is a really convenient service that provides a dermatologist consult to determine a tailored prescription retinoid cream without entering an office! The retinoid  cream I received was very gentle with minimal peeling and effectively got rid of my acne just after a few weeks.

    This is one of the lightest but effectively hydrating moisturizers I have ever used. I know it is a holy grail moisturizer for a lot of people :)

Glow Recipe toner worth the hype??

I think it’s worth the hype. I love the bottle design and slight watermelon fragrance of the toner. It’s very hydrating and not astringent at all. I’m not certain that it has had a profound effect on shrinking my pores, but I have only been using it for a week or so :)

What kind of results are you seeing with the Glow Recipe toner? The glass toner jar is 💯!

Love the toner jar as well! I think it’s very hydrating but the jury is still out on how it affects me pores. I do look forward to applying it AM and PM for what it’s worth

Thank you for your thoughts! It has such nice aesthetics... Is there a strong fragrance? I'm quite sensitive to fragrance.

The Dear Brightly product sounds so interesting. How much is the cream? And do you double up on the facial creams, then?

I think I paid $50 for the initial consult and cream after application of a first time user discount. It should last about 3 months. I do use moisturizer after the retinoid to prevent any irritation
