Got a facial and thought I wouldn't like these products but wanted to try something different because I'd worked at a laser clinic forever and used pretty harsh ingredients for my acne, but my skin had cleared up a lot so I wanted to start on a gentle routine with very little to no chemicals. I started this routine and was shocked at how great it was. I used the lemon cleanser, red currant mattifying mist, whipped plum moisturizer, and probiotic cleanser. My skin has never looked more clear and it hasn't irritated my sensitive skin. I'll keep on this. It's great!

Magic Lumi primer has been awwsome to me! Not my fav as a primer but wanted to review it bc I have found alotta ppl use this differently...Personally i mix this with another primer i use,warm it up with my fingers then massage into my skin...THEN i take a tad more and mix with whatever foundation im using that day bc i want a lil more lumi-ness...and i get it! It's water based so for all you girlies with the worry it may break you out i feel comfy enough saying your safe to use this! Personally iv found using as a primer then again in my foundation mix keeps me from getting cakey on days when i wear foundations like MJs reMarcable or Giorgio Armani Lumi that tend to dry fast..this primer allows you to have that extra time to buff out your foundations that dry quickly like these...def recommending to anyone 👍💋


Cleansers -Eminence Organic Skin Care - Organics Lemon Cleanser

I love this as a morning cleanser to start the day. It's a comforting smell like lemon meringue. I've used it to remove makeup and I have to do two passes but it actually removed it quite well. I just prefer using the probiotic at night and this in the morning. It's a good routine for my sensitive, acne-prone skin :)


Conditioner -Andalou Naturals - Argan Stem Cells Age Defying Conditoner

This is advertised for fine and thinning hair so I tried it. I've use it and the shampoo this past week and my hair has looked horrible. It totally weighs my hair down and it looks very dull. It's going into the trash tonight. I love other Andalou products but this one was a big fail for me.

Moisturizers -Clinique - Dramatically Different Moisturizing Gel

I have been using this for years. A very good basic moisturiser that works for my combination rosacea skin. Doesn't break me out and keeps my skin hydrated too.

Styling Products -Garnier - Texture Tease

Highly recommend: Been using it for a week and love it. I lift my hair and spray at my roots--and I am not as stingy as I usually am after seeing a youtube vid where someone said you have to use a fair bit. I was going to buy the expensive brand versions (B&B Dryspun etc.), but ran into this first and OH MAN I'm glad I did. . .Gives my fine, thin hair some lift and body. I just got a bob haircut and it was looking limp. 90 degree weather doesn't help, either. I hear this is hard to find, so I'll pick up some more where I got it. Fandamntastic!

Treatments (Face) -Unlisted Brand - Timeless - 20% C + E Ferulic Acid Serum

on 7/18/2017 10:31:00 PM

Normal/dry skin, no acne or other issues. My skin is in great shape, (thanks to Tretinoin and acids). Just some slight pigmentation spots and very fine lines.
I bought this mostly for antioxidant prevention, but also any correction it offers. I'm serious about skincare, and prefer simple, powerful products that are independently proven to work. I've had incredible results over last few years and I don't look my age, (38), at all.

So I added this a few weeks ago to my simple routine. (OCM, Daily SPF, Tretinoin 3X/week, face oils blend, Mandelic peels 3X/month, and now C E Ferulic 3X/week)

Watery serum with a slight, fleeting smell, (not fragrance). I keep it in the fridge, and dispense it quickly, applying to face, neck and décolleté.
It absorbs quickly and leaves my normal/dry skin a bit tight. I apply my face oils or rose water & glycerine after about 20-30 minutes.
Initially it did dry and irritate my skin around my eyes and forehead, which is odd since I'm very accustomed to acids and Tretinoin. But that eventually subsided. It's a powerful concentration and some irritation is to be expected. Extra moisture helps.
I've never had acne, only the occasional pimple, and this has not triggered any spots on me as yet.
Already I can see it leaving a glowing, even complexion, my skin looks nice and alive, and fresher. It feels smoother, almost like I've just done a peel. It's still too early to judge results on sun spots or wrinkles. (I'll update)
1st UPDATE: I can't believe how even my skin looks just after a few weeks. It's blowing me away.


Vitamin C serum isn't a fad. Just learn about it and know what you're buying. I did a ton of learning about vitamin c before I purchased the Timeless. Of course I was initially leaning towards the Skinceuticals option, but went with Timeless as the formulas are quite similar, and the Timeless pH is within effective range. I'm glad I did, because so far so good.

Cleansers -Mario Badescu - Make-up Remover Soap

I love this makeup remover!!! It's not weighed down with oils that can clog pores. I can say that i still follow with a cleanser as i use this as a makeup removing balm for my face. Do not use around eyes .. this is meant 4 face only.. I apply to lightly wet skin and smooth on. One downside is u can only purchase from the mb website... not available in stores. However it comes in 2 sizes and if u order from the mb site, shipping is super quick. I think this is a very underrated product and i wish received more recognition.
