About iUNIK Tea Tree Relief Serum:


It’s been about 2 weeks using this serum. I picked this up because I thought it could help with some breakouts. I ended up not using it on my face. This product contains wheat germ extract. I’ve used this ingredient in other products before, and they all made me breakout. Unfortunately, I wasn’t able to use this on my facial skin. I didn’t want to risk getting clogged pores. The product does sound promising. It contains tea tree leaf water, centella, niacinamide. Currently, I’m using the serum on my body. It absorbs into the skin very well like the other iUNIK serums I have (Propolis Vitamin Synergy, Black Snail Restore). This serum is more watery and lighter on the skin. It leaves my skin feeling moisturized without feeling heavy. Since I was unable to use it on my face, I won’t purchase it again. I’ll stick to the other two serums I have from iUNIK.

Has anyone used this serum before? Share your results! 🙂

About The Ordinary Retinol 1% in Squalane:


I’ve used this retinol serum a few times in place of my other acne treatments during the week. The formula has an oily feel to it. It contains squalane and jojoba oil in it. Here are the list of ingredients:

Squalane, Caprylic/Capric Triglyceride, Simmondsia Chinensis (Jojoba) Seed Oil, Retinol, Solanum Lycopersicum (Tomato) Fruit Extract, Rosmarinus Officinalis (Rosemary) Leaf Extract, Hydroxymethoxyphenyl Decanone, BHT.

This retinol serum feels nice on the skin. It glides on smoothly. I wasn’t bothered by the oiliness of the product, since it felt lightweight and moisturizing. It left my skin feeling sooo soft and elegant. I enjoyed using the product when I did. But after a few days (a few times a week), I did notice some pimples. I had hard sebum stuck in my pores and a huge nodule on my temple. I think the oils in this product isn’t working for me. It’s too much (even though it feels lightweight) on my skin. So I’m going to discontinue using it. I don’t want to create chaos in my skin. I wouldn’t recommend this serum if your skin can’t handle squalane (first on the ingredients list) and jojoba oil. My skin has issues with squalane. 😥
