Bakuchiol vs Retinol 💗

Have you heard about the latest, greatest skincare ingredient? Bio-Retinol, the natural alternative to retinol, the vegan retinol, the plant based retinol, the natural retinol – all different names for one thing: Bakuchiol. ✨

Bakuchiol is found in the seeds and leafs of the Babchi plant, also known as Psoralea Corylifolia, so basically a plant extract. It is a natural occurring antioxidant and is called “herbal alternative to Botox” (no topical products are an alternative to something you inject, so let’s just forget that quickly) and “natural version of retinol”.

Bakuchiol has no structural resemblance to retinoid acid, but there are studies showing that it has similar effects on the skin,so let’s quickly look at the mechanisms of retinoids on your skin.

Retinoic Acid works through specific receptors in the cell that trigger an increase in gene expression and increased production of collagen Typ I, III and IV as well as aquaporin 3 expression. Translated that means that your skins firmness and elasticity increase, while your wrinkles and fine lines decrease.

On top of that it speeds up cell turnover, which leads to younger looking, more even skin and less hyperpigmentation. 💦

Both Retinol and Retinaldehyde are precursors of Retinoic Acid that are slowly transformed into Retinoic Acid in the skin, which is why they act slower and are weaker in terms of effects and side effects. You can buy those as OTC products, while Retinoic Acid usually is prescription only.

All retinoids can lead to retinol dermatitis, a period of inflammation, dryness and flaking skin, typically occurring within the first four weeks of treatment. That can be prevented by using lower concentrations, slowly building up a tolerance or using the products less frequently than once a day. Some people though never tolerate retinoids. 💦

Bakuchiol is a great retinol alternative for everyone that is sensitive to retinol side effects, but there is no need to replace the retinoids that have been working for you. And if you are on prescription strength, you won’t find the same effects in Bakuchiol products.

The Inkey List Oat Cleansing Balm vs The Ordinary Squalane Cleanser which is better?

🌿 @theinkeylist Oat Cleansing Balm – works so well because of two key ingredients: oat kernel oil and colloidal oatmeal. The oat kernel oil is noncomedogenic (meaning it won’t clog your pores as it dissolve makeup and grime), it contains naturally occurring antioxidants, and because it’s a humectant, it’s an excellent hydrator. Colloidal oatmeal is excellent at cleansing the skin and is known for having soothing and anti-inflammatory properties.

The texture of this balm is thick and has a slight graininess to it, which m, once worked into the skin, dissolves easily.

This cleanser is unscented, which I love and very affordable 9.99 $.

It effectively removes all of my makeup, doesn’t cause irritation, it’s really good for sensitive skin.

🌿 @deciem Squalane Cleanser contains squalane, lipophilic, and emulsifying sucrose esters ingredients. It’s suitable for all skin types.

This product looks like moisturiser when you squeeze it out of the tube, but it changes to an oil consistency when you rub it between your hands.

The cleanser washes off really well and doesn’t leave behind an oily film and my face felt moisturised and hydrated afterwards. I didn’t experienced any irritation.

This one also is unscented and affordable 7.99 $ .


Well is hard for me to choose a favourite from this too, but @theinkeylist formula and texture works much better for me! 🤍

CeraVe Hydrating Foaming Oil Cleanser

For a month I tested the new @cerave Hydrating Foaming Oil Cleanser that is formulated to be ultra-mild, yet effective in cleansing the skin of dirt, oil and pollution with moisturising the skin. 💦

This foaming formula is suitable for delicate skin and skin prone to mild eczema. It contains 3 ceramides to help strengthen and maintain the skin barrier, and triglycerides and squalane oil to help replenish natural skin’s lipids, suitable for normal to dry skin on the face of body.

You’ve seen on my IG that I am a big fan of Cerave, and I was really excited to try their new product.

Some of my favourite points about this product:

  • the texture is gel-like and really hydrating without dry out my skin
  • one pump is enough for my whole face, neck and chest
  • it is good for double cleansing and every day use
  • the quantity for the price 26.99 $ for 473 ml

The only thing I would note is that you’ll still have to use a separate makeup remover, as this isn’t that effective as dissolving makeup and definitely won’t help you take off the waterproof mascara !

This is a nice gentle everyday cleanser, without any irritation. It is also fragrance free, a huge plus. 🤍

Ingredients:

Aqua/Water, Glycerin, PEG-200 Hydrogenated Glyceryl Palmate, Coco-Betaine, Disodium Cocoyl Glutamate, PEG-120 Methyl Glucose Dioleate, Polysorbate 20, PEG-7 Glyceryl Cocoate, PEG-150 Pentaerythrityl Tetrastearate, PPG-5-Ceteth-20, PEG-6 Caprylic/Capric Glycerides, Sualane, Ceramide NP, Ceramide AP, Ceramide EOP, Carbomer, Triethyl Citrate, Sodium Chloride, Sodium Hydroxide, Sodium Cocoyl Glutamate, Sodium Lauroyl Lactylate, Sodium Hyaluronate, Cholesterol, Citric Acid, Capryloyl Glycine, Hydroxyacetophenone, Caprylyl Glycol, Caprylic/Capric Triglyceride, Trisodium Ethylenediamine Disuccinate, Phytosphingosine, Xanthan Gum, Benzoic Acid.

My top 3 affordable drugstore sunscreens

Who doesn’t love affordable drugstore products that works? I think everybody ! Today I am gonna to talk about my top 3 favourites sunscreens that which I always rebuy because they work great for my oily acne prone skin but they will definetely work on a combo skin as well.

@eauthermaleaveneromania very high protection Dry Touch Fluid SPF 50+ – is a facial sunscreen suitable for normal to combination skin that is effective against both UVA and UVB. This formula has been designed to be very water resistant and to regulate sebum production, thanks to its content in Monolaurin. The ultra-fluid texture ensures that the skin stays matte throughout the day and Avène Thermal Water soothes any irritations. Characteristics Dry touch ultra fluid emulsion; Very water resistant; Paraben-free.

This sunblock comes in a pump bottle that it makes very easy to dispense.The moment I applied this it left a little bit of white cast but after 20 minutes it tones down and I can not spot it anymore. It set quite quickly so I had to apply it fast, I didn’t notice any pilling the finish is semi-matte which I really like !

I kinda liked it under makeup, but I can’t say it’s my favourite sunscreen under makeup.It doesn’t sting my eyes at all, cuz you know how sensitive they are and I did not experienced any irritation or breakouts from using it. Doesn’t feel sticky or greasy and absorbs almost immediatelyOffers a really good oil control, my face remain matte for like 4-5 hours.

Contains 4 UV filters: Tinosorb M, S, Uvasorb HEB, Avebonzone and it doesn’t contains fragrance which I like very very much! It costc only 12 $ so I think is a fair price for 50 ml.

Ingredients:
AVENE THERMAL SPRING WATER (AVENE AQUA). C12-15 ALKYL BENZOATE. METHYLENE BIS-BENZOTRIAZOLYL TETRAMETHYLBUTYLPHENOL [NANO]. WATER (AQUA). DIISOPROPYL ADIPATE. ISODECYL NEOPENTANOATE. SILICA.

@altruistsun Altruist Dermatologist SPF50 Light Face Fluid is a broad-spectrum, dermatologist facial sunscreen created to provide superior protection, in a moisturising super-light transparent formula suitable for daily use. Enriched with Vitamin E to help prevent cellular damage from UV induced free radicals, to reduce the risk of skin cancer and premature skin ageing. Suitable for use under make-up or after shaving.

This is a hybrid sunscreen it contains both chemical and physical UV filters ( Butyl Methoxydibenzoylmethane; Ethylhexyl Salicylate; Octocrylene; Titanium Dioxide (Nano); Phenylbenzimidazole Sulfonic Acid; Tris-Biphenyl Triazine (Nano); Bis-Ethylhexyloxyphenol Methoxyphenyl Triazine; Ethylhexyl Triazone) .

It has a lightweight texture, it gets absorbed into the skin very fast, absolutely no white cast and the finish is a little bit dewy, but I like it is very natural, and it look very nice on the skin when you reapply it. I did not see any pilling and also stays very nice under the makeup.

The only thing that I do not like is that stings my eyes really really bad, so if you have sensitive eyes use another sunscreen around them. What I’ve learned is that Octocrylene filtere is the cause for the feeling of stinging. I only buy this because I know that is safe and it look very good on my skin and is also really afforrdable. This is also an unscented sunscreen, 50 ml for 10.55 $

Aqua, C12-15 Alkyl Benzoate, Butyl Methoxydibenzoylmethane, Ethylhexyl Salicylate, Ethylhexyl Stearate, Glycerin, Octocrylene, Niacinamide, Dimethicone, Potassium Cetyl Phosphate, Titanium Dioxide (Nano), Phenylbenzimidazole Sulfonic Acid, Panthenol, Tris-Biphenyl Triazine (Nano), Aminomethyl Propanol, Bis-Ethylhexyloxyphenol Methoxyphenyl Triazine, Ethylhexyl Triazone, Phenoxyethanol, Cetearyl Alcohol, Glyceryl Stearate, Alumina, Titanium Dioxide, Acrylates/C10-30 Alkyl Acrylate Crosspolymer, Caprylyl Glycol, Decyl Glucoside, Simethicone, Butylene Glycol, Piroctone Olamine, Disodium Phosphate, Diethylhexyl Sodium Sulfosuccinate, Xanthan Gum, Silver Chloride, Propylene Glycol.

@larocheposay Anthelios Shaka Fluid SPF 30 – is a daily facial sunscreen that offers very high protection against the harmful effects of solar radiation. It has a minimalist and hypoallergenic formula. Specifically developed for sensitive skin it should suit any and all skin types. With a unique combination of antioxidants and sunscreen filters, it offers broad and photostable protection against solar radiation. It has the ability to not only protect the skin from UVA, UVB and infrared rays but also from oxidative stress. In addition, its formula has a unique technology that makes this sunscreen ultra-resistant to water, sweat and sand. Besides all this, its texture is also ultra-light and non-greasy, gliding easily over the skin without creating a feeling of discomfort and unsightly white marks. And the best part? It’s also suitable for the eye contour area, as the minimal formula won’t sting the eyes.

La Roche Posay Shaka Fluid is like a lightweight serum to me that gets absorbed very easily into the skin , has watery texture and I could easily spread it across my skin and rub it in easily. No sticky feeling left on my skin, my skin remains quite refreshed and hydratated after I am using this sunscreen. I also like that this sunscreen is water/sweat resistent.

I do not like that it contains fragrance and is quite strong but if you do not like fragrance in products you can choose the La Roche Posay Anthelios Shaka Fluid SPF 50+ 50ml the unscented version ( I think I will chose this next time). The quantity is 50 ml and the price is a little bit higher than the other two 15 $.

Ingredients:

My Top 3 Japanese Sunscreens

You really should know something about me: I really like asian skincare products. From my opinion all the skincare secrets came from them, because asian womens have such a gorgeous skin and they also get older much harder than western people.

So today I want to show you my top 3 favourite japanese sunscreens, because again from my opinion :)) they make the best sunscreens especially for my oily acne prone skin.

  1. Kose – Suncut Aqualy UV Protect Gel SPF 50+ PA++++ – gel-type sunscreen is fortified with SPF 50+ PA++++ for maximum UV protection and formulated with 10 herbal extracts including orange flower water, lemon fruit, rosemary, witch hazel, St. Joh’s wort, grape leaf and hops to nourish and moisturize skin.

KOSE SUNCUT UV Protect Gel is a daily use Japanese sunscreen gel that feels weightless on the skin. This sunscreen is genuinely so good ! It has a nice lotion consistency, spreads easily, absorbs really quickly and leaves almost no shine on my face. It’s also very affordable and comes in a big bottle 160 g. It has a strong strong alcohol scent, but i goes away quite quickly and it’s not drying for me, but is you are sensitive to ethanol you definetly should check another one.This is not water resistant which may or may not be a downside to some people. No fragrance! Costs only 20 $.

Full of gentle, moisturizing ingredients and formulated with light durability technology for strong UV protection. Comes in a squeeze bottle.

This is the first japanese sunscreen I’ve tried and become one of my favourites. This is really good as it’s light on the skin, it doesn’t leave it greasy at all – not even throughout the day – it has no fragrance, it’s also not drying and comes in a good amount 110 g and also does not sting my eyes wich I love. It water resistant, doesnt leave an white cast, just a glowy healthy skin look and it gets absorbed so fast. I definetly love this one and its so affordable 15 $ for 110 g.

Such a nice sunscreen. It’s lightweight, fast absorbing, no white cast at all it’s not greasy and it’s a hybrid sunscreen it contains both chemical and mineral UV filters (Octinoxate, Uvinul A Plus, Zinc Oxide, Titanium Dioxide, Tinosorb S) . I think is great for all skin types. This sunscreen also didn’t sting my eyes. Only issue is that it is a very small package 40 g and I saw a pilling when I’ve applied makeup over, some girls didn’t so maybe I do something wrong? I don’t know. So it’s pretty affordable if you want to try it 11.87 $ . It comes in two versions mine is the clear type but you can also find the white type.

Do you double cleanse every night? 💕

@heimish_cosmetic All Clean Balm and @banilaco_official Clean it Zero; they are my favorite so far, but there are a few things that I like and don’t like about them. 🤍

  1. Heimish All Clean Balm

The balm-like texture changes to an oil cleanser upon contact with water to cleanse thick makeup without tugging or dehydrating skin. Hypoallergenic ingredients including shea butter, citrus herbs, fruits and white flower extracts make it suitable for sensitive skin.

🤍 Heimish All Clean Balm – it removes the make-up really easy and leaves the skin super moisturized, it does not sting the eyes. I do not like the herbal smell, it’s a little too strong for me.
It contains alot of essential oils in the ingredient list so it can irritate your skin or even broke you out.
Price: 19$ for 120ml

Major Ingredients:
Ethylhexyl Palmitate, Cetyl Ethylhexanoate, PEG-20 Glyceryl Triisostearate, Polyethylene, PEG-8 Isostearate, Shea Butter, Cocos Nucifera (Coconut) Fruit Extract, Lime Extract, Freesia Refracta Extract, Prunus Serrulata Flower Extract, Jasmine Extract, Lily Extract, Edelweiss Extract, Nelumbium Speciosum Flower Extract, Rose Extract, Orange Peel Extract, Lavender Oil, Pelargonium Graveolens Flower Oil, Amyris Balsamifera Bark Oil, Grapefruit Peel Oil, Eucalyptus Leaf Oil, Tea Tree Leaf Oil, Mexican Juniper Oil, Boswellia Carterii Oil, Citrus Aurantium Bergamia (Bergamot) Fruit Oil, Tocopheryl Acetate, 1,2-Hexanediol

2. Banila CO Clean it Zero Cleansing Balm

Hypoallergenic cleanser comes in a solid balm form that quickly transforms into silky oil upon touching skin. The soft, lightweight formula dissolves makeup and washes away impurities without stripping skin of essential oils. Its papaya and acerola extracts help to naturally exfoliate and brighten skin with Vitamin C. Best for normal, oily, dry and combination skin types.

🤍 Banila CO Clean it Zero – this is my first cleansing balm I’ve used and I love it. The texture melts into silk, it takes off even the waterproof mascara without leaving the skin dry or tight. You need a very small amount for the whole face, my eyes didn’t sting from it either.
It contains fragrance so if you are sensitive to it, this balm is not for you.
Price: 22$ for 100ml

Major Ingredients:
Cetyl Ethylhexanoate, PEG-20 Glyceryl Triisostearate, PEG-10 Isostearate, Butylene Glycol, Water, Malpighia Glabra (Acerola) Fruit Extract, Fragrance, Angelica Archangelica Root Extract, Tocopheryl Acetate, BHT, Butylparaben, Epilobium Angustifolium Leaf Extract, Carica Papaya (Papaya) Fruit Extract, Acrylates/Ammonium Methacrylate Copolymer, Phenoxyethanol, Ethylhexyl Palmitate, Sunset Yellow FCF, Onsen-Sui, Aspalathus Linearis Extract, Polyethylene, Aspalathus Linearis Leaf Extract, Bambusa Arundinacea Stem Extract, Ethylhexylglycerin, Angelica Polymorpha Sinensis Root Extract, Viscum Album (Mistletoe) Leaf Extract, Polydiethyleneglycol Adipate/IPDI Copolymer, Mineral Oil, Lithospermum Erythrorhizon Root Extract, Bambusa Vulgaris Leaf/Stem Extract, Synthetic Wax, 1,2-Hexanediol, Acrylates/Methoxy PEG-15 Methacrylate Copolymer, Rubus Suavissimus (Raspberry) Leaf Extract, New Coccine

Both are amazing products, but also they contain some ingredients that are not that good for people with sensitive skin so also remember to check the ingredients list. 🤍
About packaging : I like Zero more because the jar is closing perfectly and no product can run out, and the Heimish one I have the feeling that is not really leak-proof.

🍀TRY ME REVIEW ME with Benton’s Goodbye Summer Acne Kit 🍀

The name and definition of Benton took its motives from the movie “The Curious Case of Benjamin Button” (Also known as ” Benjamin Button goes backwards in time” in Korea) which had a warm touch on many people’s heart.

In the movie, Benjamin is born as an old man and he becomes younger and younger as time goes by and ultimately dies as a new born baby. Benjamin Happens to deeply fall in love with a woman named Daisy. However, as time goes by and as Benjamin becomes younger he has no choice but to leave Daisy. 

What if Daisy could have also turned back time on her physical appearance, wouldn’t she be happier?It may just be a fictional movie, but wouldn’t most people have the same desire to be young again?

Benton’s desire is to turn back the time of your skin.  Unlike the instant temporary effect created by the chemical ingredients, we hoped to improve skin care, by using the natural ingredients in our products which will help regain your skin to its original healthy condition. 

Due to Benton Cosmetic being a friends and family friendly cosmetic, we have a rule on not imputing components such as paraben/mineral oil/dayalcohol/benzophenone/chmical preservatives/steroids in all of our products to ensure your trust in our ingredients used in our products. 

🌱Aloe BHA Skin Toner – I’ve tested this before and at first I didn’t liked it but using it constantly I really seen improvements on my skin textures and the size of my pores.
I find many BHA products too strong but this one is gentle enough to be used daily. It also contains snail mucin and Hyaluronic that helps a lot with hydration and acne scars.

🌱Aloe Hyaluron Cream contains 7-hyaluron acids.
The texture is transparent, the gel spreads all over the face fastly and it’s easily absorbed. It doesn’t have any scent, the effects of this product are: moisturising, soothing, calming. If your skin gets irritated easily this one is for you!

🌱 Goodbye Redness Centella Gel – this has also a transparent gel consistency that melts into the skin almost instantly. It works well, my skin feels calmed about a minute after applying and it never broke me out.

🌱Goodbye Redness Centella Spot Cream this one really helped me with my redness. At first I didn’t expecting much, but I was pleasantly surprised. This product is a very good addition if you want to treat a larger area.

🌱 Goodbye Redness Centella Mask Pack – I love this mask it feels amazing on the skin and is really cooling. Centella Asiatica Leaf Water content is 45% ! So I feel like it has contributed to an overall reduction in redness though.

All of these products are amazing. This time I do not have any CONS 😂
