InstaSkincare Retinol Serum
May. 31, 2020Leave a comment
I’m bringing this retinol serum back into my skincare routine. I talked about it before…
>>> Anti-Aging Skin Care Products Review
The reason why I’m bringing it back is because the Cos De BAHA Retinol Serum has been *shrugs*. I thought I would give this one another chance. It didn’t break my skin out as I can recall. After using the Cos De BAHA Retinol Serum + other serums. The InstaSkinCare Retinol Serum is actually less sticky than the Cos De BAHA Serums! It also comes in a larger bottle too (2 oz vs 1 oz).
Here are the product claims:
- Gives the skin a healthy glow
- Improves skin texture and reduces dark spots by speeding up skin cell turnover
- Fights wrinkles and fine lines
- Reduces pigmentation
- Potent strength acne formula
- Reduces blackheads and whiteheads
- Minimizes pores
Those are basic claims of any retinol skin care product. I’ve only used the InstaSkincare Retinol Serum twice. Since retinol should only be used at night, I’m going to alternate between BP and my nighttime skin care products to take advantage of the benefits of retinol. In the meantime, check out my last update on my ‘clear skin journey’.

My Skin Care Routine (Vegan, Cruelty-Free)
Feb. 29, 2020Leave a comment
Here’s an update on my skin care routine. I had to make one. I’m re-evaluating the skin care products I’m using. Making sure that they are vegan and cruelty-free. It’ll take me time, but I’ll get there. 😊😊
Face Wash: Trader Joe’s Spa Face Wash with Tea Tree Oil (am + pm)
Fortunately, my favorite face wash is vegan and cruelty-free. It’s really good for oily, acne-prone skin without making the skin feel dry. I highly recommend it if you have similar skin to mine. I know people that use this face wash with dry, normal, combination skin too. It works for them.
Toner: Pixi skintreats Retinol Tonic (pm) & Glow Tonic (am)
Pixi is a cruelty-free brand, but not all of their products are vegan. I believe the Retinol Tonic and Glow Tonic are vegan. I’ve found conflicting information about the Glow Tonic. I will continue to use it unless it’s not vegan.
Eye Care: Eva Naturals Youth Restoring Eye Gel (am + pm)
This is my second bottle of the eye gel. It helps with dark under eye circles, but it’s not moisturizing at all. I’m on the fence about this eye gel. I want something more moisturizing, but we’ll see how it goes. This eye gel is not tested on animals.
- Cos De BAHA Vitamin C Serum (am + pm)
- Simplified Skin Vitamin C Serum (am + pm)
- Cos De BAHA 94 Galactomyces Serum (am + pm)
- Cos De BAHA MA Peptide Serum (am + pm)
- Cosmedica Pure Hyaluronic Acid Serum (am + pm)
- Cos De BAHA Retinol Serum (pm)
All of them are vegan and not tested on animals. 🙌🏻
There’s a possible chance of me dropping Cos De BAHA Vitamin C Serum from my skin care routine. I don’t see the point on having two bottles of Vitamin C in my routine. I haven’t noticed a difference between the two.
Acne Care: Acne.org BP Treatment Gel (pm)
This is a staple in my skin care routine for treating acne. It works! If you have acne, give it a try. You won’t regret it! I know it worked for me! Do you know what else??? It is vegan and not tested on animals.
- Aztec Secret Indian Healing Clay (1-2x/week)
- Sheet Mask: Herbal Infusion Rosehip Seed Extract Sheet Mask (1x/week)
Aztec Secret Indian Healing Clay mask isn’t tested on animals. It’s vegan. The only sheet mask I’m using right now is the Herbal Infusion Rosehip Seed Extract Sheet Mask. It’s not tested on animals either. I still have a pack of Dermal sheet masks left. I haven’t been using them. The sheet masks have not been tested on animals, but not all of the sheet masks are vegan. I won’t purchase again after I finish them.
Face Scrub: Acure Brightening Facial Scrub
This face scrub is gritty enough to remove dead skin cells off of my facial skin. It seems to last forever too. A little goes a long way when it comes to this facial scrub. I only need a small amount for it to work. It’s also a vegan skin care brand. Cruelty-free too.
That’s my current skin care routine. 😁
To someone that’s not interested in skin care, this looks like a lot of work. Looking at my skin care routine, it looks pretty minimal. haha. I’ll be sure to purchase only vegan, cruelty-free skin care products from now on. 🐰🐰🐰♥♥♥
