Trying Out The Ordinary Amino Acids + B5 Again. My Experience!

The Ordinary Amino Acids + B5

I decided to give The Ordinary Amino Acids + B5 another try. Yeah, I’ve been trying out a ton of my previous skin care products. I feel like my skin care routine is growing, but at the same time, my skin has improved so much! It looks so soft and more youthful. I’m loving the results! This time, I’m having major success with all of the skin care products I have tried so far! It’s amazing! So last night, I randomly thought I would give one more The Ordinary product a chance after using it to moisturize my body. I mean, it’s a tiny bottle (1 fl. oz.). I was using it on my body to use it up, but I thought I would just try it on my face again to see if it works. Other skin care products I’ve tried again from The Ordinary are…

The Ordinary Argireline Solution 10%

The Ordinary Matrixyl 10% + HA

They’re both working for me. I haven’t noticed any clogged pores from them. Insane! I know! 👏🏻

The first night of using The Ordinary Amino Acids + B5 wasn’t bad at all. It’s a lightweight watery serum that soaks into the skin quickly. It didn’t leave my skin feeling greasy, oily, or sticky. It feels like I’m applying water to my face. So what’s so special about this serum? Well! Let’s take a look at the ingredients! Here’s the ingredient list!

Water, Propanediol, Betaine, Sodium PCA, Panthenol, Sodium Lactate, Arginine, PCA, Aspartic Acid, Glycine, Alanine, Serine, Threonine, Valine, Proline, Isoleucine, Lysine HCl, Histidine, Phenylalanine, Glutamic Acid, Citric Acid, Dimethyl Isosorbide, Polysorbate 20, Trisodium Ethylenediamine Disuccinate, 1,2-Hexanediol, Caprylyl Glycol.

I wonder why it didn’t work the other times I used it? Hmmm! lol. I’m using products that contain propanediol without any issues this time. But this serum contains 17% amino acids, which includes amino acid derivatives and 5% vitamin B5. It’s supposed to help with dryness, fine lines and wrinkles, and loss of firmness and elasticity. It does feel hydrating when applied to the skin, but the hydration doesn’t last for too long. It feels like a very watery, lightweight hydrating serum that can be used in combination with other moisturizing skin care products. It won’t solve your dry skin issues but nice to have in a routine. I really wonder if it’ll work for fine lines and wrinkles. How about firmness and elasticity? Only time will tell.

So I woke up this morning without any breakouts, but I did notice some dead skin peeling from my face. I’m not sure if it’s because of the serum or the horse cream I’ve been using. That cream has been godsend!! Go to the link provided to read more about my experience with it! With The Ordinary Amino Acids + B5, I didn’t have any issues using it this morning either. I’m not sure what’s going to happen later on tonight. But, so far, it’s been working just fine. No breakouts, no skin irritation, no redness, nothing. Here to another skin care product that may make it’s way into my skin care routine!! Absolutely no problems after using it twice! Wish me luck!

Maybe The Ordinary isn’t so bad after all…

My Thoughts on Hada Labo Gokujyun Premium Lotion! Am I Using It Again?

Hada Labo Gokujyun Premium Lotion

I’m ready for another moisturizing product in my routine! I feel like I’ve been adding so many skin care products into my routine once again, lol. But good news! No breakouts this time from them. And I enjoy using them. That’s all that matters, right? hehe.

Here I have Hada Labo Gokujyun Premium Lotion. I’ve been meaning to add this lotion back in for so long. I stopped using it when I was having major skin issues. I had to eliminate some products and this was one of them. Finally, it’s time to bring it back into my skin care routine! 🙌🏻

More about this product…

This lotion is infused with seven kinds of hyaluronic acids. It comes in a rich texture that provides instant and long-lasting hydration. It doesn’t contain any fragrances, colorants, essential oils, alcohol, and parabens. Packaging is eco-friendly too. As always, I had to dig into the ingredients. So what are the seven kinds of hyaluronic acids in this product that it mentions??

First off, I would like to mention that the first couple of ingredients in this lotion includes glycerin and hydroxyethyl urea. Hydroxyethyl urea is a very good moisturizer and humectant. It moisturizes the skin by helping the skin cling onto water. It helps to maintain normal moisture balance in the skin. Here’s another product that I use that contains this ingredient. It’s been a very moisturizing product so far! So don’t forget to check it out! Now on to the hyaluronic acids. What are the seven hyaluronic acids? They are…

Sodium Hyaluronate, Hydrolyzed Hyaluronic Acid, Sodium Acetylated Hyaluronate, Hydroxypropyltrimonium Hyaluronate, Sodium Hyaluronate Crosspolymer, Lactococcus/Hyaluronic Acid Ferment, Hydrolyzed Sodium Hyaluronate

Did it work to moisturize my skin?

I’ve been using this lotion for about nearly 2 weeks. So, not too long. But I think that’s a good amount of time to share my thoughts on my experience with this product. If you look at the name of the product, it says it’s a lotion. When the product is dispensed from the bottle, it’s more of a gel than a lotion. The product feels a little bit sticky and gel-like. When applied to the skin, it feels a little jelly and sticky, but it absorbs into the skin well. I didn’t have any problems with application. This lotion left my skin feeling super moisturized without feeling heavy or greasy. My skin loved it even though I’m oily. It felt lightweight on the skin, and it didn’t make me look more oily, but it gave my complexion this dewy and nice glowy appearance to it. It works great when my skin feels a little bit more sensitive than usual too. Even though this product feels hydrating on the skin, I didn’t think it kept my skin hydrated for long. But I think that’s OK. It’s more of a lightweight gel moisturizer than a rich, heavy, nourishing moisturizer. I think it helped to alleviate some dry skin that’s chapped. But just not on it’s own. I use it in combination of other hydrating skin care products to keep my skin hydrated throughout the day. Overall, I think it’s a good gel moisturizer that didn’t let me down. I also didn’t get breakouts from it. Surprisingly, because at some point I thought it did. Interesting! It looks like I have another moisturizing product in my routine! It’s working for me! 👍🏻
