Y'know I love me some aloe vera. Straight from the plant or bought from the drugstore, I don't care as long as I have it in some form in my house. I eyed @naturerepublic_kr for a long time and finally gave in and OMG! It delivers! I used it mostly on my days off where I know I'll be going nowhere and can re-apply this masks how many times I want. Between application it can get quite drying so I like to revive it with some toner or pure rosewater, massage it in my skin and put on some more aloe vera gel. But there's a point where I have to wipe some of the layers off and start new.
.
🌿 92% Aloe Vera
🌿 300ml 😍
🌿 can be used for the whole body, even hair!
🌿 deep hydration and soothing
.
When applied the gel texture swiftly turns into water and a small amount covers your whole face and neck. After drying down it doesn't sink in your skin completely so be aware of that.

I feel bad. Why? Because this TOTA-S 3.0 by @chicaychico_official is the bomb.com! I hesitated because of my accutane treatment waaaay to long to give this little baby a try and now? OMG my dark spots seems to fade much faster! I use it in my pm routine on areas where I need it and it sinks right in and doesn't dry out my skin. It smells a little bit strange but hey, we would do everything for healthy looking skin, am i rite?

I'm picky when it comes to BB creams or foundations and I was quite nervous to try a different one cause I have been using Missha's Perfect Cover for about 2 to 3 years.
OMG! Why haven't I tried @klairs.global
ILLUMINATING SUPPLE BLEMISH CREAM earlier?! It's everything that you expect from a nice BB Cream
.
🍯 no grey cast
🍯 SPF40 PA+++
🍯 natural finish
🍯 hydration for dry and sensitive skin
.
I love the finish of this BB cream and that it leaves no grey-ish cast on my skin! It looks and feels natural while covering small blemishes and redness. And now it's my new favorite BB πŸ’—

Real talk for a moment: I am honestly waiting for that one product from @klairs.global where I am like: "Yeah, that was just okay. I am not blown away or something..."
And it's definitely not Dear Klairs FRESHLY JUICED VITAMIN E MASK. I never thought I needed a mask like this in my life until I used it: as soon as it arrived at home I put it on and 🌟OMG🌟 my skin felt so refreshed, hydrated and deeply cared for.
As some of you may know I am currently on accutane and needed a mask for brightening dark spots, deep hydration and something I could leave on overnight so I don't wake up with flaky skin. And Klairs Vitamin E Mask was on my wishlist for a very looong time... so I treated myself!
.
🌿 hydrates the skin
🌿 enhances the effects of Vitamin C
🌿 Vitamin E (prevents cell aging, soothes inflammation, protects against sun damage)
🌿 2% Niacinamide (anti-inflammatory, lowering sebum secretion, reduces pigmentation)
🌿 max. dose of Adenosine (improves wrinkles, promotes collagen, anti-flammatory, wound healing and regeneration, improves acne)
.
Doesn't this sound amazing? 😒Especially for my fresh acne breakouts and all that's happening on my skin this is the best solution: acne calmed down rapidly and dark spots faded faster. I haven't tried it in my am routine yet but I may mix it with my daily moisturizer to give it a little boost. All in all this may be the product that saves my skin during my harsh accutane treatment. πŸ™

Would you look at that? Another one of my faves from 2017: @imfrom_official HONEY MASK. I love everything about this mask. The smell, consistency, finish... everything! πŸ™ (I posted a review a couple of weeks ago)

If I had to pick my favorite new product from 2017, it has to be @klairs.global MIDNIGHT BLUE CALMING CREAM. It soothes my skin instantly, relieves redness and stops itchiness. I could drown my skin in this and knew that I would have done something good for it. It's truly a life saver πŸ™
(If you are interested: Klairs Supple Preparation Toner and I'm from Honey Mask are also my No. 1 πŸ˜‚)

I was so looking forward to use @chicaychico_official TOTA-S 3.0 in my PM routine but my acne treatment got in the way πŸ’Š now I am afraid to put anything on my face, even though it says it is made for extra sensitive skin. Before my treatment I had minor breakouts and thought that this might help keep them in check. I used it maybe 2 - 3 times and was surprised by the thin and light gel texture. It sinks right into the skin and leaves no sticky residue or dries out the skin like other spot treatments
.
πŸ’Ž made for sebum-driven skin troubles
πŸ’ŽAstaxanthin functions as a damaged skin reliever
πŸ’ŽAstazet 4.0 takes care of dark spots due to sunlight exposure or repeated skin problems
πŸ’Žfocused on brightening up damaged spots and evening out the skin tone
πŸ’ŽHypo-Allergenic
πŸ’Žfor normal to oily and extra-sensitive skin
.
Now that I read this again: this is exactly what my skin needs. I have, due to my treatment, many active irritations and red spots on my face (yay to purging phase...) and my skin needs some relief asap. Maybe I give this a try again tomorrow and watch my skin carefully? πŸ™

I don't really know what to say about @bywishtrend MANDELIC ACID 5% SKIN PREP WATER. I have very complicated skin right now (veeeery dry and highly sensitive because of Isotretinoin) and everytime I use the Mandelic Acid the wounds on my face burn and sting πŸ”₯So I don't feel I can judge it properly at this moment. Maybe I can in a couple of months?
What I can say about the Mandelic Acid is that it's totally not drying out my skin and leaves it supple and fresh. Let's see how I can further on use it in my skincare routine
.
🍁 gentle exfoliating water
🍁 removes dead skin cells
🍁 smoothes dull, rough skin

As someone who struggles (again) with pimples and acne, these ACNE PIMPLE MASTER PATCHES by @cosrx were the next logical thing to buy. Patches that suck all the gunk and oil out of your pimples - without any squeezing?! I felt like someone heard my prayers. FYI the package is empty and I used ALL of them up, every.single.one.of.them. I am already thinking about buying my next bunch of patches, this time more!
The first time I used these patches I was super excited. I had many (big and small) pimples forming, some freshly popped and other were pretty deep rooted. On the popped ones, the next morning you could see that the patch had a big white dot on it - that's what the patch sucked out ouf the pimple. Pretty satisfying to see, I might say! 😎 On the closed pimples the patch soothed the area, made it smaller and stopped you from picking at your skin. I need these back in my life asap 😭

Today we're going to talk about @cosrx again and this time it's their Holy Grail product ONE STEP ORIGINAL CLEAR PAD. I bought these from @wishtrend and always wanted to have them, but they were a little bit too expensive for my taste. But I gave in and bought them for 19USD
.
β˜‡Short Story Time before I start my review: I was waaay to excited when I first tried these pads. The instant results were just too good to be true - so stupid me started using them every.single.day for a couple of days. My skin started to act up and I was wondering why... until I saw Sonia's @moikobeauty post about the same product and she said she uses the pads 2 to 3 times a week. And I was like FML these are not for daily use?! πŸ˜‚ I instantly stopped using it and now use them every 3 to 4 days and my skin loves it. Thank you Sonia πŸ’— you saved my skin.
.
🌱REVIEW🌱
As you can imagine I LOVE THESE PADS and love the instant results when you use them! My skin never looked so glowy and healthy before! The pads are well-soaked and last not only for your face, but neck, chest and a little bit for you back if you should have problems there, too.
.
πŸ’§ keeps complexion clear, refined and well-balanced
πŸ’§gently wipes out excess oil
πŸ’§embossed side for gentle exfoliation
πŸ’§fast & sure trouble care
πŸ’§deeply penetrates pores to flush out gunk
.
Most of the time I use the pads in the evening after a shower and really take my time applying it everywhere until the pad is completely dry. I don't want to waste a single drop πŸ˜‚

Say whaaa--?! Yes, I am alive (at least I think I am) and I am back with a quick sweet review of one of my Black Friday purchases from @wishtrend. And it is @cosrx Centella Blemish Cream
.
What it promises:
🌱 lightens post blemish marks
🌱 soothes affected areas
🌱 treats sensitive stressed-out skin
🌱 the first ingredient is Centella Asiatica Leaf Water
🌱 Zinc Oxide helps healing wounds
🌱 Tea Tree Oil helps fighting acne
.
So far I've used the Centella Blemish Cream just a little bit, as you can see from the photos cause I haven't found a good way to use it. COSRX suggests to use it in a thin layer over affected areas, but for me that hasn't quite worked out. After the cream dried on my skin, it leaves a thin layer on it and if you didn't apply it very well, it easily peels off and turns into white little sticky things. Yesterday I tried to use it as a spot treatment and that seems to work a little bit better. I left it on for a few hours and took it off with a Qtip. There was some redness afterwards but that faded quite fast. I don't know if my skin likes this or not, but I can say for sure that red marks fade a little bit faster. I need to experiment a little bit more on that. But so far I know that this cream is more of a spot treatment than an overall cream for your face, at least for me
.
β˜‡β˜‡SHORT UPDATE ON MY SKINβ˜‡β˜‡
I am now on Isotretinoin (aka Accutane aka Aknenormin for my German Peeps) and took today pill No. 15. I am taking 10mg a day which is, I think, the lowest dosage you can have, and right now I am in the purging phase. Which means the area around my mouth looks like a battle field. Deep congestions are coming to the surface, some are quite painful some are just red dots which take forever to go away. Right now Calming Creams and Zinc Oxide spot treatments are my BFFs.

Just when I thought I had my skin a little bit under control and could concentrate on healing my skin, new irritation and redness popped up. Now I have new dark spots on my forehead and cheeks 😒 when does it ever stop?! I am so grateful for this super calming and soothing 🐝Honey Mask 🐝from @imfrom_official I've been using for a couple of weeks. It helps me with my allergies and healing my acne marks.
.
🐝 contains 38.7% real honey, so keep it in a warm place!
🐝 targets dry and flaky skin
🐝 protects the skin from fatigue due to weather and external stress
🐝 honey is antibacterial, so it helps fighting against acne
🐝 deep hydration and calming

As suggested by @wishtrend I leave the mask an hour on my face, without any dripping, and wash it off with lukewarm water. On my first use I noticed that the mask leaves a slight residue that sits very nicely on my skin. I tap it in and wait a little bit with my following skincare. My skin looks brighter, feels hydrated, dark spots lighten up and the next day my complexion looks much more even! β˜„οΈ

My first ever Laneige product and it's not the famous Water Sleeping Pack! πŸ™ˆ
The Lip Sleeping Mask is hands down one of the best lip care products I have ever used. It nourishes, hydrates and leaves my lips feeling so soft - I'm loving it! Tho it's recommended to use it at night, I like to use it in the day, too cause this lip mask protects my skin, gives my lips a healthy glow and stays put for so long! It's not like other lip products you have to keep reapplying every 10 minutes, it really stays there! πŸ‘

β˜‡SKIN UPDATEβ˜‡
Where to start? I'm still on my minocylin medication for at least 10 more days and every evening I apply a tretinoin treatment on my trouble areas. I hate that stuff cause I have to apply it directly after washing my face and wait a couple of minutes so it can do its magic. My skin gets so dry while waiting 😭
I haven't had major breakouts or cysts since my visit to my dermatologist a month ago, but since a few days my skin got a lot of dry patches around the mouth area. It can get quite ugly when the day passes, especially when I have makeup on and smile a lot πŸ˜… and then two days ago out of the blue I got a painful small pimple. And don't judge me but I popped it... my skin looks like I butchered it 😒 hopefully it won't inflame again. I don't know why my skin is acting so random these days. Is it because of the medication? Or is it because I have been quite sick and stressed out the last weeks and couldn't look after my skin like I used to? Or is the seasonal change a reason? Or maybe all of the above!? I do not knooooow πŸ˜₯
Well, I'm off to do my hydrating pampering routine tho I don't feel like it 😷

I've been using @mizon_official Snail Repair Eye Cream in my am routine for a few weeks now and it's a clear step up from my average drugstore eye cream. My skin around my eyes looks definitely healthier and has less wrinkles caused by dryness. I like the light and non-sticky texture and that it's quick absorbed into my skin. πŸ™† tho I have to say that I stinged the first few times I used it and sometimes, when I used it in my pm routine, I woke up with slightly swollen eyes. But now that my skin has gotten used to it, it's okay.

I neglected my eye area for a very looong time and I am regretting it now 😭 So a couple of weeks ago I bought TWO eye creams from @mizon_official : one for my am routine and one for my pm routine. The Intensive Skin Barrier Eye Cream Pack Deep Moisture Lifting Care is the one I use in the evening and wow! It has such a rich texture and immediately relieves the skin around the eye area. No more wrinkles from dryness or a tight feeling. I apply a decent amount and tap it slightly so my skin can absorb it better, but because of the texture it doesn't absorb completely into my skin. It just stays there. But hey, it's my pm routine so I don't mind πŸ™†

β˜‡A little skin update from my side: it's been nearly a month since my visit to my dermatologist and the start of my minocyclin and tretinoin treatment. So far no new cystic breakouts πŸ™ and I am super happy with the results!
β˜‡About the product: I was eyeing with @etude_official Soon Jung 5-Panthensoside Cica Balm for quite a while and actually bought it for my cystic acne in hope it would calm it down and protect my skin barrier. Tho I don't have to deal with cysts right now I like to use it to protect my skin from external damage and stress πŸ™Œ you can never be too careful!
β˜‡What it promises: improving damaged skin β€’ protecting skin barrier β€’ no stuffy oily feeling β€’ similar pH level to skin

Would you look at this? After so many weeks of travelling @bentoncosmetic Snail Bee High Content Essence arrived in the mail today! And I used it already πŸ€“ it has a very interesting texture: it comes out as a gel but turns immediately into water when you work it in your skin. 🐌 Let's see how my skin will react to this. I'm still on acne medication and have to deal with a lot of scarring 😭

β˜‡Skin upate: lucky me hasn't got new big acne in a few days, but I have two old deep cystic bumps on my left cheek and lots of fresh red marks 😭 hopefully my dermatologist can help me and tell me why my acne is back after two years. My wish is a second round of Isotretinoin with a slightly higher dosage πŸ’Š let's see what he says the day after tomorrow. Wish me luck β˜„οΈ

My skin loves aloe vera. Back in 2015 I had to take Isotretinoin because of my acne and in preparation for that I wanted to get as much hydration for my skin as possible, so I opted for aloe vera gel: it's gentle and organic. To this day I have atleast one tube of it always in my house. So, guys, listen to your skin: if it loves something, stick to it.
About the product: Enzborn is a german brand but I think it's widely available on amazon. Give it a look. In Germany you can find it in Rossmann for 4,99€.

Dear Klairs Gentle Black Deep Cleansing Oil is my first cleansing oil ever and I'm so sad that I haven't tried it out sooner! Cleansing with this is like a spa experience. I love the feeling of it on my skin and how quick it disolves my makeup. Taking it off the skin can get quite difficult sometimes, but that's why you double cleanse. Quick tip: mixing Dear Klairs Gentle Black Sugar Facial Polish with one to two drops of the cleansing oil and boom! Just right for my skinβ˜‡
