Hyaluronic Acid Serum from The Inkey List

This quickly absorbed super serum hydrates your skin and helps it appear plump and smooth while decreasing the appearance of fine wrinkles.

The Inkey List Hyaluronic Acid serum comes in a 30ml container, which is the first thing I’d want to point out. The plastic bottle is both compact and practical. The cover features a simple press-down flip-top mechanism. There aren’t any fancy glass bottles or droppers like in The Ordinary.

The Inkey List Hyaluronic Acid includes 2% hyaluronic acid with three different molecular weights, hydrating your skin at various degrees depending on how far it can sink. This aids the product’s effectiveness on your skin.

In addition to hyaluronic acid, The Inkey List Hyaluronic Acid contains the peptides Palmitoyl Tetrapeptide-7 and Palmitoyl Tetrapeptide-1, which together produce Matrixyl 3000, a collagen-boosting substance. This indicates that the hyaluronic acid in this serum is a little greater than your average hyaluronic acid serum.

The consistency is a transparent, viscous lotion. In a hyaluronic acid serum recipe, this isn’t unusual.
Before applying to my skin, I normally put around 2-3 drops (The Inkey List advises a pea-sized amount, and it’s approximately that) into the palm of my hand.

Sensibio H2O Micellar Cleansing Water and Makeup Remover Solution

Sensibio H2O is the first and only dermatological micellar water that is completely skin-friendly: its fatty acid esters, which are micelle constituents, are similar to the phospholipids found in skin cell membranes and help to naturally rebuild the skin’s hydrolipidic film.

Bioderma Sensibio H2O is surprisingly silky and soft compared to other cleansing fluids I’ve tested. As a result, applying it feels a touch opulent, which I love in a nighttime regimen. It removes makeup (though you may need to use a bit more than normal if it’s a heavy-duty formula) and hydrates skin better than a face wash, but its major selling point is its complete lack of irritation.

Actives from Dermalogical Skincare are incorporated to assist improve the skin’s barrier. 1 percent Vitamin E, 4% Peptides Complex, 2% Niacinamide, 10% Vichy Volcanic Mineralizing Water (the water is said to assist ease inflammation), and Probiotic (Bacterial) segments, for example.

This is a wonderful, fluid texture that is both light and airy. It isn’t so light that it disappears completely once absorbed/rubbed into the skin, but it is light enough that it isn’t irritating and allows my skin to breathe. This also gives my skin a smoother appearance. It’s definitely hydrating, and as you can see, the result is more dewy than matte.

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

How The Inkey List Oat Cleansing Balm works?

🌿 @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.

What’s the texture?

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.

How The Ordinary Squalane Cleanser works?

🌿 @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 $ .
