New additions to my summer & spring time skincare! 🙌🏾💁🏾♀️🧖🏾♀️. Adding the facial SPF* & the Hydrating Nutrient Mist* to my @madhippieskinproducts collection which is growing! I finally found an SPF that works for my skin and doesn’t leave my ashy! This facial SPF has a 30+ UVA/UVB broad spectrum. As a black woman, I was once ignorant and assumed black people don’t need SPF.... ugh lies! I’ve been using this one from Mad hippie for a few weeks now and it works! Plus it’s one of the best affordable ones. The hydrating mist is also a new fave of mine. I love mists and have tried quite a few of them over the last year. I think they’re great for oily dehydrated skin. May is my month of Minimal skincare and these two will with me on the journey. * = PR samples 👌🏾
Ok I was too excited for all the makeup so the post went live today over on CHY. Pretty much obsessed with everything in the post. ✖️✖️✖️ Special shoutouts to my new @lancomeofficial base, @onomiebeauty lip + cheek, @weylie x @pixibeauty eyeliner, @diormakeup eyeshadow, and @commodity fragrance.
Acid lineup on my current #shelfie — I am started to amass quite the collection and I actually think there are several missing from this photo. Still— these are the acids I reach for most frequently and they all have specific uses in my routine. Am I crazy for having so many? I truly think acid toners have made the biggest impact on my skin’s overall texture and brightness. Pretty life-changing to learn about these things as a girl who previously avoided any salicylic acid thinking it was “too harsh.” Turns out — it is the other ingredients in your typical drugstore SA formula, not the SA itself. Live and learn people 💁🏼♀️ Keep reading for how I use each of these products—💯 . . . @alphahskincare Liquid Gold— 5% glycolic acid; this was the 1st glycolic toner I tried and I was immediately hooked (diminished congestion overnight? Yes please). That said, I found this formula a bit strong and drying — it contains a fair amount of alcohol, which I don’t love. I used this 1-2x a week to provide a deeper/stronger exfoliating treatment than my typical lactic acid toners. I’m not mad I purchased this but I won’t be repurchasing because I think there are better products out there. . @deciem Glycolic Acid Toning Solution 7% — I originally started using this as a body exfoliant to prevent ingrown hairs (and it works a TREAT btw). I also recently started experimenting with using it on my face in place of the Liquid Gold. I have to say— I’m very pleased. It delivers that glycolic fix I need without being drying (thanks in part to the Aloe in the formula). I’ve already repurchased. . @biologique_recherche_usa Lotion P50 PIGM 400 — I’ve written about this game changing toner at length...suffice it to say I’m obsessed. If you want the details LMK and I’ll tag you in my previous post 💯 . @biologique_recherche_usa Lotion P50 — same 👆🏻 ...I could go on for hours but I do have a day job so LMK in the comments if you
When you find your SD card adapter 🙌🏽😅 Here is #newproduct I purchased in my TJ Max haul last month. It’s the Tea Tree Flawless BB Cream from @thebodyshop✨ I love the @thebldyshop products especially their Tea Tree Line but this one I haven’t tried yet. It’s too dark for me currently but it’s matches my usual summer tan makeup. Can summer hurry up please?

When I got to my late 20s, my body went through major changes. No more weekday drinks if I want to function in the morning, hangovers lasts for a whole day, and by Thursday my body can feel like it's running on 10% energy. I definitely need something. The Über Energy dietary supplement from #humnutrition aims to boost for consistent energy throughout the day. It's designed for adrenal fatigue, as it's high in Vitamin B6, L-Tyrosine, and an herbal concoction of energizing extracts like Eleuthero, Ashwagandha, and Rhodiola. These little pills doesn't have a distinct taste or smell so it's easy to digest. At first, I didn't notice any difference but when I missed a day of taking this, I immediately felt ths effect. I was more sluggish and sleepy than previous days. It's recommended to take 2 but I started with 1 to ease myself in. I got nice results with 1 pill so I didn't change it. #skinwhimsreview Hum Nutrition Über Energy This product was provided by @humnutrition for review. Available for $25 at humnutrition.com

Treat your skin to a true cleansing experience that thoroughly lifts away makeup and surface impurities. As a foaming and soap-free cleanser, it is blended with a dual-benefit anti-ageing complex of Alpha Hydroxy and Polyhydroxy Acids, plus conditioners to soothe and improve skin texture, leaving the skin perfectly balanced and refreshed. 📸 @astridcarolinaa
I finally got around to writing a review on the Body Hero Duo ($35 when purchased together) from @glossier! This duo has an orange blossom neroli scent that people seem to either love or hate. I personally really love it. The best description I’ve heard for the scent is fancy French baby perfume (lol) which I think describes it perfectly. . . . . . . . . . . 👙 Daily Oil Wash: I really love this in-shower oil wash! It’s made with a blend of seven different oils (coconut, meadowfoam, olive, soybean, sesame, grapesead, and sunflower). Its very gentle and does a nice job of cleaning the skin without stripping. I appreciate that it doesn’t leave behind any thick oily residue. I love the pump on it and find it very convenient to use while showering. I use a total of 5 pumps each use to cover my whole body. As you rub it in, it turns into a creamy white lather that rinses off easily. It doubles really nicely as a shaving cream and doesn’t create any product buildup on my razor which I love! 👙 Daily Perfecting Cream: In my opinion, the cream is good. Not great, but good. I love how it absorbs into the skin really quickly and doesn’t leave any residue. It’s perfect to use if you’re in a rush and need to get dressed right away. It also leaves a slight luminous sheen on the skin which I like. However, it’s pretty lightweight and I didn’t find it moisturizing enough for my personal preference. Keep in mind though that I tend to prefer really thick body creams. It claims to give “all-day intense hydration” but I felt like it was pretty average as far as moisturizers go 🤷🏻♀️ I will be reaching for it when I want something lighter than my typical cream!
Combination or Oily Skin? The @sundayriley Ceramic Slip Clay Cleanser is a great product to help extract excess oils to start the day or remove from a long day of work. 🌗 The formula is smooth and the smell is invigorating. With combination skin, I use this product on my oily days. I wash my face with lukewarm water and a final rinse with slightly cooler water as temperature extremes can be too shocking for your skin. Afterwards my skin feels clean, very oil balanced and bright with a noticeable reduction of redness. Now that I love this product, I’m excited to try the #flashfacial by combining with Sunday Riley’s Good Genes Lactic Acid Treatment. Stay tuned for feedback! Do you all have other clay based products you like? . . . . . . . . . . . . . . #sundayriley#sephora#sephorarouge#intothegloss#claycleanser#claymask#facecleanser#potd#skincare#skincareregimen#skincareroutine#skincareritual#trendingatsephora#betheinfluencer @sephora @intothegloss @pridawg @nkatari @mjmojo23
On my face this morning ✨ . ☀️Prepped with @coola Dawn Patrol primer*. I never use primers but the addition of spf 30 made me want to try it. Luckily no breakouts, I do like the way it feels, not suffocating or too silicone-y feeling. Concealed with @chanel.beauty Corrector in rosebeige under eyes. @makeupforeverofficial Hd Concealer on zits and dark spots. @pixibeauty @chloemorello Palette * I used the top Peach blush, and neutral eyeshadows mixing 2nd duo and third. I use the dark brown brow powder to fill brows @glossier Lidstar Fawn on entire lid to crease and set with Wowder Light/Medium. Set makeup with @caudalie *Beauty Elixir. I forgot how much I love the smell and feel of this!! 💦 Very refreshing and I know I’ll be refrigerating for the summer months. . *gifted . ✨Glossier Save 20% on First Order (Link in Bio)✨
