November Skin Care Empties πŸ¦ƒ

Comment
Kose Suncut UV Perfect Essence SPF 50

I didn’t have any empties last month (October). Here are my skin care empties for the month of November! If you missed out on my empties for August and September πŸ‘ˆπŸ»

SOME BY MI Niacin 30 Days Miracle Brightening Sleeping Mask:

I’ve been trying to finish my last jar of SOME BY MI Niacin 30 Days Miracle Brightening Sleeping Mask. I tried using it on my face and body. My experience using it on my face was not that good. The sleeping mask feels very drying on the skin. I could see the skin along my chin cracking. It’s not a good product if you have dry skin. I don’t. I have oily skin, and this sleeping mask dried my skin out like crazy. It helped to temporarily brighten my skin, but the brightening effect faded within a week. Maybe my skin just doesn’t like niacinamide in this product? I just know that it’s very drying and made my skin feel awful. With the rest of the product, I used it on my body and won’t repurchase ever again.

Kose Suncut UV Perfect Essence Super Waterproof SPF 50+ PA++++:

This sunscreen is lightweight, blends into the skin easily, absorbs quick, has SPF 50+ PA++++, comes in a 110 mL bottle instead of something tiny like 40-50 mL (yes!!!), sweat-resistant, water-proof. Ah, how this sunscreen could’ve been perfect because I can overapply and my skin wouldn’t feel sticky or greasy. But, this sunscreen lists ‘ethanol’ as the second ingredient on the list. It smells like alcohol and dried my skin out and irritated it. I couldn’t believe how my skin looked so aged after using it at least once. Sun protection is important, but this product is not for me if it makes my skin look all wrinkly because of how drying and irritating it is. I won’t purchase again. By the way, I also tried it on my body and hands. It made my skin super itchy. I ended up with a bad rash and blisters.

Dear, Klairs Freshly Juiced Vitamin Drop:

This vitamin c serum feels gentle on the skin. It contains 5% ascorbic acid. The serum didn’t irritate or burn my face. But I wasn’t a fan of the texture of the product. It’s on the oily side. As for fading acne marks, I didn’t see much results using this serum. It didn’t help to brighten my complexion either. Maybe the 5% concentration is just too low for my skin? All I know is that I didn’t see any results while using it. So I wasn’t able to use the whole bottle, the serum turned really orange. It oxidized. Hmmm, note to self, never purchase a vitamin c serum that claims to be formulated with stabilized vitamin c that comes in a clear, see-through bottle. It’s clearly not stabilized. It turned really orange, and I kept it in a dark, safe place. I had to toss the serum out. Not recommended.

Vanicream Mineral Facial Moisturizer Broad Spectrum SPF 30:

This is a moisturizer with sunscreen. It feels like a moisturizer. It’s thick, rich, and feels heavy on the skin. I have oily skin, so it felt very rich and heavy on my skin. It left my skin looking more shiny and greasy on the surface, but it helped to moisturize and soothed my skin. I don’t think this is a bad product. It’s just that, it’s only SPF 30, and I’m using another product that contains similar ingredients to the Vanicream that works better for me. This product works to moisturize and protect. It’s not something I need in my life right now. It was nice to try it out.

CeraVe Hydrating Mineral Sunscreen SPF 30 Face Sheer Tint:

One of the products I finished this month that I really like! It contains ingredients like ceramides and niacinamide. The sunscreen moisturizes my skin and helps to brighten my skin up. I haven’t noticed any breakouts using it. I’m still keeping my eye out for any clogged pores just in case! Some things I would love to change about this product is to boost the SPF 30 to 50, make it water/sweat-resistant, and add more shades. The shade isn’t a perfect match for my skin. It does blend into the skin, but I wish it wasn’t too orangey. I wish it was a more natural-looking skin color. As for reapplication, it’s really easy to reapply sunscreen with this product. There’s no white cast. This sunscreen comes in a 1.7 fl. oz. (50 mL) tube. It would be nice if it was larger, especially for the price. It’s 13.99 where I am. It’s not super affordable compared to other sunscreens I have tried.

Neutrogena Hydro Boost Water Gel Lotion Sunscreen Broad Spectrum SPF 50:

I figured out that I still had a bottle of the SPF 50. I found it in my bag, lol. And it’s still usable and hasn’t expired yet. I didn’t use it on my face. It’s not the type of product for my facial skin. So I used it on my hands instead. The sunscreen absorbed into my skin very well and quickly. The fragrance was awful. I didn’t like it at all. Since I didn’t use it on my face, I didn’t have to worry about the alcohol content in this product. I used this sunscreen up and threw it out. I won’t repurchase. I hope this is the last Neutrogena Hydro Boost sunscreen that I have, haha!

Review: Altruist Sunscreen SPF 50

Comment
Altruist Sunscreen SPF 50

I’ve been itching to try this sunscreen due to good reviews and the fact that it has a 5 star ultra UVA rating of PPD 54! Someone, anyone, please take this sunscreen to a lab and see if the SPF and UVA rating is accurate. I really want to know! This sunscreen contains photostable UV filters including the world’s most advanced filter Tinosorb A2B. It claims to be fast absorbing, non-sticky, hypoallergenic, non-comedogenic, fragrance-free, paraben-free, water-resistant, cruelty-free, coral-friendly, vegan, and feels like a moisturizer! I’ve been using it for 1 month. Here are my thoughts on this sunscreen after a month of using it!

My Experience with Altruist Sunscreen SPF 50:

Texture & Application

This product is a cream. It’s soft and blends into the skin easily. It just vanishes into the skin and leaves the skin feeling very moisturized. It’s a hybrid sunscreen and doesn’t leave a white cast behind. This is an alcohol-free sunscreen. Yes! I’ve been searching for a sunscreen that’s high UVB and UVA and is alcohol-free! This one meets that criteria. I didn’t have any issues applying this product to the skin. I used it on my bare skin, and it went on just fine. It didn’t pill or ball up. The application was good. I love that it’s moisturizing. It moisturizes the eye area very well too. But be careful not to get the product into the eyes. It’ll burn. It’s fragrance free, but it has a smell to it. It has a chemical smell that lingers on for a while but doesn’t last all day. Thank goodness! The sunscreen is water resistant and stays in place.

Non-sticky. Is it?

This was an issue that I had with this sunscreen. I thought it felt sticky on my skin with reapplication. The first application is OK (not the best, just OK), but as I continue to reapply, my skin starts to feel sticky, shiny, and oily. It feels like I have product sitting on top of my skin. Technically, yes, I have product sitting on top of my skin, but it would be nice if it was a little less tacky and sticky. My hair tends to stick to my face while using this sunscreen too. I prefer to use it once (due to the stickiness) and reapply with my other sunscreens instead to avoid this problem. I can’t see myself reapplying with this sunscreen throughout the day. It’s way too much trouble and feels awful on the skin. My eyes would burn with reapplication.

Did it clog my pores??

I didn’t get any breakouts from this product, but it is on the moisturizing side. Too much moisture leads to an increase in sebaceous filaments for me. I’ll report back if I see any breakouts with continued use.

Final Thoughts

I love that this product is high UVB and UVA. What a dream come true! I feel like I’ve been using inferior sunscreen products compared to this one by looking at the stats. SPF 50 and PPD of 54? ALCOHOL FREE?? Yes!! Sign me up! I didn’t have major issues with this sunscreen besides the product being sticky and some eye burning (if it gets into the eyes). Otherwise, my experience with this sunscreen went pretty well. It’s moisturizing. No moisturizer is needed when using this sunscreen. It’s moisturizing enough. It also comes in a 100 mL bottle. It was super affordable too. How is this possible? There’s so many sunscreen options nowadays. I really despise sunscreens that come in tiny little bottles with high price tags. Using sunscreen properly is very important to get the protection specified on the bottle. A small bottle of sunscreen isn’t going to last too long, and it’s just a waste of money, in my opinion. I tend to go through bottles of sunscreen rather quickly. This sunscreen seems to fit almost all bullet points that are important to me. It’s alcohol-free, water-resistant, fragrance-free, larger bottle for the face (100 mL), moisturizing, hasn’t clogged my pores (as I know of yet), and it’s SPF 50 with PPD of 54. I’ve decided to keep using it since it’s working on my skin. I’m still on my first bottle. Trying my best to use it as often as possible and when I’m exposed to prolong periods of sun exposure. I’m glad I stumbled upon it. I just hope my skin doesn’t start reacting negatively to it. So far, so good. πŸ‘πŸ»

The product was not sealed upon opening. It comes in a flip cap bottle.

My Acne Journey: 5 Months + 3 Weeks

Comment
CeraVe Moisturizing Cream

Hi everyone. πŸ™‚ It’s been 5 months and 3 weeks on this acne journey. I can’t believe it’s been this long on this journey! I’m pushing forward each day!

So I took a 3 day break from my acne treatment this week. I tried to increase the dose and it all backfired, lol. In other words, I burned my face. During this break, I tried iUNIK Beta-Glucan Power Moisture Serum to hydrate and heal my skin. You can read about my experience by clicking on the link. From my experience with this product, I won’t be continuing on with it. It made my skin worse. It seems like my skin prefers a plain, bland, minimal skin care routine. I just went back to my normal daily skin care routine. On my rest days (if there’s any), I just leave my skin alone. I use nothing on my skin at night. By the end of the week, the breakouts shrunk in size. My skin felt less dry. I was very disappointed with the results I got from iUNIK. I’m never using it ever again. I can’t wait to finish it (on my body) and toss it out. I’m not sure how this product has positive reviews. It’s not worth the money. No wonder why I was breaking out so much back then. It was a combination of things plus this product and most likely other products.

After another week of using Olay Regenerist Hyaluronic + Peptide 24 Revitalizing Facial Cleanser. My skin doesn’t feel dry from using this facial cleanser anymore. My skin is finally used to it. But, I’m still on the look out for a new facial cleanser. Still.

I stopped using bha during the break, and I was using it 1-2 times a week, but I’ve bumped up my use of the product this week. I’m dealing with random blackheads popping up out of nowhere. I wonder if it has to do with my sunscreens. Some of them feel sticky, tacky, and overly moisturizing. My skin does not need that much moisture. Just enough. Reapplying sunscreen really leaves my skin feeling heavy sometimes. I’ll keep using bha and see what happens to my skin. Hopefully the blackheads are going to clear up. If not, I’ll have to find something else to get rid of these blackheads.

More products I tried this week!

Neutrogena Visibly Even Daily Moisturizer with SPF 30:

I still haven’t seen this product being sold anywhere. I still have 2 bottles of this sunscreen left. After I finished Vanicream Mineral Facial Moisturizer Broad Spectrum SPF 30, I started using Neutrogena Visibly Even Daily Moisturizer with SPF 30. I have to use them up so they won’t go to waste. I’m only using this sunscreen indoors. It’s not sweat or water-proof. My experience using this sunscreen wasn’t that good. I’ve used it for many years because it was the only sunscreen product that didn’t clog my pores, moisturized my skin, and brightened it. I guess it wasn’t too bad of a product. At least it didn’t clog my pores and made my complexion more even. It contains glycine soja (soybean) seed extract to help fade acne marks and brighten the skin. I’m glad I found other sunscreens that provide better protection without clogging my pores. I was pretty committed to this sunscreen. Well, once I finish the last bottles of this product, it’s done. I have no choice anyways. I think it’s been discontinued. There’s also fragrance in this product. I found it pretty irritating to the skin and eyes. By the way, this is a chemical sunscreen. Hell yes! It burned my eyes. I wonder how I put up with that for so many years.

Trader Joe’s Daily Facial Sunscreen Broad Spectrum SPF 40:

I finished my first bottle of Trader Joe’s Daily Facial Sunscreen Broad Spectrum SPF 40 this week. The texture of the sunscreen felt very silky smooth. That’s one thing about the sunscreen that I really liked. It smoothed over my skin easily and blends into the skin very well. This sunscreen, unfortunately, burned my eyes. I can’t use it near my eyes or the skin around my eyes. I used a mineral-based sunscreen instead for the eye area when using Trader Joe’s SPF 40. It also clogged my pores once again. I noticed a few clogged pores on my chin and 2 cysts (haven’t had these in a while!) after a few days of using it. The sunscreen does contain shea butter. Perhaps that is the culprit. So, the texture and consistency of the sunscreen is very lovely. It moisturizes and smooths out the skin. It works as a makeup primer due to it smoothing the skin out. Since it breaks me out, I won’t purchase another bottle after finishing my last one. I’m not going to use the rest on my face but my body.

Eucerin Q10 Anti-Wrinkle Face Lotion SPF 15:

I finished (couldn’t get the rest out of the bottle) this sunscreen in August (read more on my skin care empties). It’s November. I noticed that I still had this SPF sitting around unused because I couldn’t cut open the bottle. Yes, that’s what I do to get every last drop out. With Eucerin’s packaging, they make it difficult to get to every last drop. Finally, I was able to cut open the bottle with much difficulty. Look what’s at the bottom of the bottle? Tons of product leftover. Sheesh! This would’ve been a waste if I had just tossed the sunscreen out after the pump couldn’t dispense any product out. This is one of those products that I would never purchase again. They need to change the packaging of the product. It sucks. It infuriates me knowing that products like this exist. Terrible product.

Eucerin Q10 Anti-Wrinkle Face Cream & CeraVe Moisturizing Cream:

I stopped using Eucerin Q10 Anti-Wrinkle Face Cream on my face a while ago. I’ve been trying to use it up and using it as an eye cream. My facial skin didn’t like the cream, but the skin around my eyes seems to love it. The cream is fragrance-free, non-irritating, and blends into the skin effortlessly. It smooths out the eye area too. I love it! I might bring it back into my skin care routine as an eye cream (not a face cream). Another product I attempted to use as an eye cream is the CeraVe Moisturizing Cream. With this cream, it didn’t work out. The cream wouldn’t blend into my skin. I just didn’t like the way it felt on my eyes. It didn’t leave my skin feeling moisturized like the Eucerin cream. CeraVe seems to work better on body. It doesn’t leave a sticky residue behind and absorbs into the skin pretty quick. On my eyes, it’s another story.

What else am I doing??

I’ve been eating pretty healthy. You can check out on my update on my health goals right here. I’ve increased my intake of vegetables after that update, haha. I’ve seen an improvement in my skin too. I’ve had less breakouts and skin just looks so much better. So it’s not just skin care I’m doing. I don’t even use that many skin care products on my face anyways. I think it’s pretty ridiculous to just rely on skin care to have healthy skin. Skin health also comes from within. I’m happy to be back on track! Also, I stopped wearing face makeup most days of the week. I didn’t see the purpose anymore. I just wanted to let my skin be. Just take care of it and not have too many makeup products on it. It’s nice to see a makeupless face.

Moving on to 6 months! Has it been this long?? 🀯

Review: Eucerin Advanced Hydration SPF 50 Sunscreen Spray with Hyaluronic Acid + Humectants

Comment
Eucerin Advanced Hydration SPF 50 Spray

I have another sunscreen from Eucerin. It’s the Eucerin Advanced Hydration SPF 50 Sunscreen Spray with Hyaluronic Acid + Humectants. It’s the sunscreen spray instead of the lotion. More about this sunscreen: It’s formulated with 5 antioxidants, hyaluronic acid, and humectants for an immediate long-lasting hydrating effect. It’s lightweight and non-greasy. Has a dry-touch finish that leaves no visible residue. It’s a non-alcoholic lotion spray, non-comedogenic (won’t clog pores), hypoallergenic, suitable for sensitive skin, suitable for daily use, formulated for all skin tones. It’s free of fragrance, dyes, parabens, PABA, phthalates, oxybenzone, and octinoxate. Water-resistant (up to 80 minutes) and sweat-resistant. I’ve been using this product for at least a month now. Here are my thoughts and experience on it.

My Experience with Eucerin Advanced Hydration SPF 50 Sunscreen Spray with Hyaluronic Acid + Humectants:

Texture & Application

This sunscreen comes in a spray bottle (60 oz. / 170 g.). The nozzle is very easy to use. To use the sunscreen spray, twist the nozzle until there’s an opening then press down. To close the spray, turn the nozzle until the opening is hidden. I didn’t have any issues with the product getting stuck. I really liked the packaging of this product. When dispensed from the bottle, the texture of this sunscreen is lightweight and bubbly. It has a nice cold, cooling, soothing feeling when sprayed on the skin. The sunscreen is white, but it doesn’t leave a white cast or residue behind. Once rubbed into the skin, it blends into the skin well, but it leaves the skin feeling very greasy. I love that this sunscreen is alcohol-free. One of the reasons why I wanted to try it out in the first place. Unfortunately, this sunscreen burned my eyes and skin. I noticed a tingly sensation on my skin when applied to the skin. So my use of this sunscreen didn’t last for too long. I had to stop using it due to irritation. I ended up using the rest of the sunscreen on my body instead. I think it works better as a body sunscreen rather than a facial sunscreen.

It’s hydrating.

It’s a hydrating and moisturizing sunscreen, but I thought it was too greasy on my skin. I’ve used plenty of greasy sunscreens and this one takes the cake. Besides the burning, I couldn’t deal with the greasiness of the product. It feels uncomfortable on the skin.

It stinks.

The spray is fragrance-free, but it does have smell to it. The smell is very strong (sunscreen/chemical smell) that irritated my skin and eyes. Even though I use it on my body, I didn’t enjoy using it on my body. The smell of the sunscreen is just so strong that it gets into my eyes. I get teary and spend the rest of the day with bloodshot eyes.

Did it clog my pores?

It’s greasy, but I didn’t notice any clogged pores (surprisingly). But, I didn’t use it for long. My skin and eyes became irritated pretty quick. I use it on my body and haven’t had any breakouts. I don’t have acne on my body though.

Final Thoughts

I finally had the chance to try out the Eucerin sunscreens (especially the spray). I’ve been wanting to try it out for the longest time! Too bad, so sad. The sunscreen spray didn’t live up to my expectations and some of its claims like being non-greasy, having a dry-touch (no it didn’t), for sensitive skin (I don’t have sensitive skin, and it burned my skin). I thought the sunscreen was very irritating, and I didn’t enjoy using it. I would think it would be more gentle on the skin due to how lightweight it is on the skin. It feels like bubbles! Also, it contains hyaluronic acid and humectants to soothe the skin. Nope, I was betrayed. My facial skin and eyes didn’t like it one bit. My experience using it on my body was different, but is it worth it? In my opinion, no. I wasn’t impressed with this sunscreen spray for the face or the body. Thought I had found a good alcohol-free sunscreen spray. I guess not. I won’t purchase again.

Review: Australian Gold Botanical SPF 50 Tinted Face Sunscreen Lotion (Fair-Light)

Comment
Australian Gold Botanical SPF 50 Tinted Face Sunscreen Lotion Light to Fair

I picked up Australian Gold Botanical SPF 50 Tinted Face Sunscreen Lotion in Fair-Light. I’ve been hearing about this sunscreen for so many years. I thought, maybe I should just try it out. What put me off from trying this sunscreen out in the first place is that it contains red algae (Porphyra Umbilicalis Extract). And my experience with algae in general in skin care products have not been good. It clogs my pores. But, anything can clog anyone’s pores. It really depends on how the person’s skin reacts to the ingredients/overall formulation of the product. So, I’ve read so many reviews raving about this product! Am I missing out on something?? Hmmm! Now, here I am, with a tube of this stuff. Here are my thoughts on it!

My Experience with Australian Gold Botanical SPF 50 Tinted Face Sunscreen Lotion!

Texture & Application

The texture of this sunscreen is a mousse-cream. It’s a very different type of texture and consistency that I didn’t expect from a bb cream/tinted lotion. It’s soft, lightweight, and souffle-like. It glides over the skin very easily and smoothly. It was very easy to use this product. Very easy to blend into the skin without tugging at the skin. I didn’t have any problems with application. It was a simple process that didn’t take a lot of time. I loved using it around my eyes. It didn’t burn my eyes. But, the sunscreen looks a little greasy and shiny upon application at first. I used the required amount for sunscreen too, which is a lot of product. After about 30 minutes, the product looked matte on the skin. The next 15 more minutes, my skin looked even more matte. It is truly a matte sunscreen as it states on the bottle (matte finish).

Fragrance-Free?

The product is fragrance-free, but it does have smell to it. When I first opened it and sniffed it, I thought it smelled like tanning lotion. After smelling it again just now, it smells like plant extracts. Maybe a combo of both? I’m not too fond of the scent, but it didn’t bother me too much.

Shade (Fair-Light Skin Tones)

I wasn’t impressed with the shade of this product. It says it’s for fair to light skin tones. The color of this product is literally orange when dispensed from the tube. On my skin, it was orange if I used too much. πŸŠπŸ˜‚ I didn’t like that at all. πŸ‘ŽπŸ» If I use it as a makeup product rather than my main sunscreen, it works out pretty well. It doesn’t turn my skin extremely orange, but there is an orange tint to the skin. That tint eventually fades away a little bit, so it wasn’t too bad. There is no coverage. It seems to work very well as a makeup primer. It seems to coat my eyelashes too. Eyelash primer as well? lol. So this product works out if you’re searching for a mineral sunscreen that is tinted (no white cast). I actually used it on top of my mineral sunscreen (that gives a white cast) to eliminate the white cast. Worked very well. Cast begone! πŸ‘‹πŸ»

Great for oily skin!

Since the sunscreen is matte, it works amazingly on oily skin. I have very oily skin, and this sunscreen was perfect on my skin when it comes to taming excess oil. It makes my face appear very clean compared to the dewy, oily look, haha. If you have dry skin, you might want to apply a good moisturizer underneath. This sunscreen is definitely aimed towards people with oily skin. I’m not saying it won’t work for dry skin. It’s truly a matte lotion sunscreen. I didn’t think it was drying at all on my skin.

It stays in place.

Most sunscreens swish around my face when I reapply. That might be the reason why I was developing more freckles! When I went in for a reapplication, I can feel that this sunscreen did not shift at all on my face. It stayed in place. Reapplying was not a pleasant experience since it felt like I was applying on top of more product. The sunscreen feels lightweight when applying, but it leaves a layer, film of product on the skin. I can feel that there’s product sitting on my skin. It’s quite annoying.

Breakouts? Clogged pores?

I was dreading using this sunscreen on my face because of the red algae. The other ingredient, shea butter, is a hit or miss on my skin. I thought this sunscreen was a tad too rich on my skin, which is odd because I thought it would be drying (from the reviews I’ve read). It leaves a sticky residue on my skin and just feels too moisturizing. I noticed closed comedones, some blackheads, and milia in my breakout-prone areas. That’s when I stopped using it. Could it be the red algae? Shea butter? Who knows. My skin didn’t like it. It feels very occlusive on the skin, especially when reapplied. By the way, I started noticing breakouts by day 2, but I didn’t stop by day 3. By day 3, it became more obvious that my pores were getting clogged.

How to remove.

This is one of the most difficult sunscreen products to remove from the skin. It does not come off by simply cleansing with a face wash. To remove this product, oil cleanse (leave on for a few minutes) and wash with a facial cleanser. I do have a facial brush too to help remove the sunscreen off of the skin. If the product does not budge, oil cleanse, oil cleanse, oil cleanse some more. Just make sure the sunscreen is all off. If you do not remove the sunscreen off properly, you’ll in up with residue on your face, which can lead to clogged pores. I removed the sunscreen off properly and made sure my skin was squeaky clean, so my breakouts were from the ingredients in the product. It’s not compatible with my skin type.

Final Thoughts

I was so excited to try this sunscreen out. It’s affordable, comes in a 3 fl. oz. tube, has SPF 50, and it’s a mineral sunscreen (4% Zinc Oxide, 4% Titanium Dioxide). The smell of the product isn’t too bad. I got used to it after a few uses. The shade of the product could be better. I wish it wasn’t orange. πŸ˜‚ Fair to light isn’t fair to light. I could see the drastic difference in my skin color when using this sunscreen. Too bad that it clogged my pores too. I wished my skin didn’t react the way it did, but it did. *sigh* I wanted it to work. It would’ve work well for outdoor workouts, hikes, pool days, and going to the beach. It sticks to the skin like crazy. If you want a sunscreen that stays on your skin, this will do it. For everyday use? It’s not for my skin type. Like I said before, it feels too heavy, sticky on the skin. It’s weird because the sunscreen feels lightweight when applied to the skin. After a few hours, it takes on this sticky texture, film that I dislike. I don’t like it and my skin doesn’t like it. It gets in my hair. It’s difficult to remove. The breakouts killed it for me. All in all, I won’t repurchase. This sunscreen has been hyped up so much that I thought it would be amazing. It’s a nope for me.

What Australian Gold Botanical SPF 50 Tinted Face Sunscreen Lotion in Fair-Light looks like:

It looks more orange in person. It has a whipped-mousse texture to it.
