I have a new skin care product. I’ve read so many good reviews on The Ordinary Nicinamide 10% Zinc 1% Serum. I’m currently using Cos De BAHA Niacinamide 10% Serum. It’s been 1 month. I’ve always wanted to try The Ordinary’s. My current Niacinamide did a good job at moisturizing, but it did nothing for my oily skin. Here’s more about this product:

I started using The Ordinary Nicinamide 10% Zinc 1% Serum this morning. As I was dispensing the serum into my palm, I noticed that it looks sticky. Once I applied it to my skin, it absorbed quickly and didn’t leave a sticky feeling behind. I will include this serum with my other serums. I just hope that it doesn’t clog my pores overtime, irritate my skin, or give me a bad breakout. We will see. I don’t want the same thing to happen again (Lily Ana Naturals Vitamin C Serum). It’s a risk to take. Let’s do it and hope for the best!

Have you used The Ordinary Nicinamide 10% Zinc 1% Serum before? Share your thoughts.

Finding the PERFECT sunblock + Other Skin Care Products

I have some skin care products to share. This is what I have.

Today, I’m going to review three items. They are the Differin Moisturizer, RejuveNaturals Skin Clarifying Vitamin C+ Serum, and Bamboo Charcoal Black Mask Peel-Off Blackhead Removal. I’ll review the Koelf Ruby Bulgarian Rose Hydrogel Eye Patch some other time.

Differin Moisturizer with Sunscreen Broad Spectrum SPF 30:

I’ve been having trouble finding a good sunblock for my skin type. SPF is necessary to protect the skin. It’s been hard finding one that’s suitable for my skin type. That doesn’t break me out. I tried Differin again.

What it claims to do…

This is what happened…

I’m highly disappointed in this sunblock again. I gave it so many chances because it says that it’s made for oily skin and won’t clog pores. Well, it’s time to move onto something else. I’m officially done with the Differin Moisturizer. Do not buy this if you have acne-prone skin. Do not buy this if your skin breaks out easily. It’s too oily.

RejuveNaturals Skin Clarifying Vitamin C+ Serum:

RejuvaNaturals Skin Clarifying Vitamin C+ Serum advertises itself to be a Vitamin C Serum with a lot of other benefits (Hyaluronic Acid, Retinol, Salicylic Acid, Niacinamide, MSM). I used it for 3 days, and I stopped. The reason why because I developed the worst whiteheads. I know it was this serum because once I introduced it into my skin routine, the breakouts started. I’m staying away from ‘Skin Clarifying’ skin care products from now on. It just makes it worse. 🙁 I don’t recommend this for anyone with acne. It’s more of a essentail oil serum. That’s exactly what it smells like. Not much of a Vitamin C serum. Bleh. No more.

Bamboo Charcoal Black Mask Peel-Off Blackhead Removal:

I’ve used the Charcoal Black Mask twice. Honestly, I wasn’t too impressed. It didn’t remove blackheads. I can see that it removed dead skin cells, but that’s from peeling the mask off of my face. I can do the same thing with an exfoliator. Blackheads can be removed by using an extractor tool. It’s only a few bucks for an extractor tool, and you have more control over what you can remove. I was hoping for something wonderous wth the Charcoal Black Mask. Meh. Try it for fun if you want. Don’t expect spectacular results. I didn’t think it was worth it. Invest in an extractor tool instead. Your bank account will be very appreciative of you.

Next up, a review on Koelf Ruby Bulgarian Rose Hydrogel Eye Patch! 🙂
