Hi readers,

Leonie Skincare was kind enough to send me a tube of this mask to try out. I used it on my nose. It works similarly to Boscia Luminizing Black Mask, but for a fraction of the cost. It is fun to use and I almost scared my dogs with the mask on my entire face. I first tested it on my nose on a first try and it minimized the pores on my nose. Worth a try!

Estée Lauder Advanced Night Repair

Dear readers,

Sorry I haven’t had the chance to update on a regular basis. Recently, I fell in love with Estée Lauder’s Advance Night Repair. I use it at night and it makes my skin glow. My skin drinks this up like water and it does not break me out. I wish I tried this product earlier! It is as good as it is hyped up to be. I love how this product keeps my skin hydrated. However, this product is not cheap. I opted in for the smaller 1 oz. bottle just to try it out. I will be picking up the larger bottle when I run out. Estée Lauder always run GWP promotions, so wait until there is a good gift set to make a purchase.

ohai-mel asked: Hello~ I really like looking through your blog ^^ I was wondering if you could recommend me a good cleanser that can help remove makeup like bb cream. I'm a noob when it comes to makeup haha ><" I have sensitive skin that tends to become dry easily. I'm Melanie btw and thank you for following me back recently <3

Hi, I use cleansing oils to wash off my BB cream. My favorite is from Shu Uemura.

matthewrichvrd asked: How often should you cleanse your face? Should you morning and night? Or is that too much and just do it at night? I have combination/oily acne prone skin.

I cleanse my face both morning and night. You should ask an esthetician or dermatologist if you have acne problems.

sunshinecherie asked: Hi! I saw that you recommended the acne. org regime, i was thinking about starting it, but ive seen alot of reviews of people complaining that the moisturizer and cleanser aren't great and you could use drugstore products with that, would getting the treatment be sufficient?

I only use the acne treatment from Acne.org. I use my own cleansers and moisturizers. A good basic cleanser that worked well for me when using the treatment is Cetaphil. Also, a good basic moisturizer with sunscreen is Olay Complete SPF 15 for Sensitive skin.

Anonymous asked: where did you get your Retin-A from? I've been looking everywhere!

It is a prescription product. However, you can look for products that contain Retinol and Retinoids.

Caudalie Vinosource S.O.S Thirst Quenching Serum

I just wanted to quickly share with you my new favorite product. The S.O.S Thirst Quenching Serum from Caudalie is awesome! Using this along with Retin-A cleared up my skin entirely. I purchased this product in a set along with a bottle of Grape Water and a sample-sized moisturizer for $48 from Sephora. 

This serum makes my skin glow! It does not break me out makes my skin soft and supple. I am so happy that I discovered this serum. I love Caudalie’s Grape Water as a toner and refreshing spray. This serum even erases a few years from my face and makes my skin look more youthful. It also does not make my face oily!
