Korean products that have helped with my acne

so I've had acne since puberty though I can say thanks to a great birth control I didn't have bad acne until I went of it my last year of college... learning skin care at that stage in life is expensive and stressful... I've also moved to different states and gotten married and divorced so you could say my life hasn't really helped my face at all... so besides cutting soda and drinking more water here are some products that helped me. This elizavecca pore cleanser was a gift from the gods above... I purchased this bottle a few months after my divorce started (technically it's not over) when I wasn't just struggling with cysts from hormones but stress acne as well... pretty much immediately the hormonal acne went away... I have not had hormonal cysts since I started using this product... I will say that I tried to foam it before washing my face for a few weeks and learned that it works the best with the instructions it comes with... which is to put it on a dry face first (take off your makeup with a wipe).. I only use this at night because it's pretty harsh and I have dry patches on my skin normally. I might make a card about my morning face wash if I can find one I love just as much... Next are these two exfoliating products... I cannot use microbeads to exfoliate because they are too rough and result in more acne... The first product is the carbonated bubble clay mask that isn't solely for exfoliation but it does do some... this product is a savior for small bumpy patches where you produce a lot of oil... it sucks it all up leaving smooth bright skin behind... I use this twice a week, mainly on my forehead and chin. The other product I use in my dryer areas or when I want a deep exfoliation once a week. This is a chemical peel with natural ingredients that you rub on your face and the dead skin literally comes off in bulk... its a little gross tbh. I love using this on my neck the most and on my cheeks and nose. Not recommended but it can help loosen up stubborn scabs so if you want a scab to stay put work around it. Lastly I was hesitant to put this product up in my favorites... its expensive and feels wonderful but it has not really done much for my acne... it has decreased the look of blackheads and does help with fine lines ... I just sent my sister cosrx pore minish serum which is less expensive so if she as good results I may switch since it is less expensive.... I wish I had a toner to put up here but sorry to say i haven't found a good toner for my acne yet... I do adore innisfree green tea toner since it moisturizes my face and sort of helps balance red spots it just doesn't help with acne so right now I use the Dickinson's witch hazel toner once a day because it's too drying for my face... I should be getting a few new toners within the next few weeks... one from cosrx and one from benton. I'll make a card if I receive anymore miracle products. ok that's it for now... I was using lots of face masks for a bit but I'll be purchasing only certain brands and types for now on... the unfortunate thing for me was that one mask would work great and the next day with the next mask it would actually cause a breakout... so I had to quit randomly masking... the last bit of advice is to find good makeup... I used Neutrogena anti acne makeup even though it's not long lasting or full coverage I believed it would help me but there are a lot of brands that don't have anti acne claims that will not make you break out... you just have to find it... which is why I currently have 4 different type of liquid foundation lol. hint I really like Maybelline pore less so far but Loreal has a better skin match for pink tones...

My Memorial Day Sale Meme box haul...

ok guys I got this box yesterday and I'm super excited to reuse some of these products as well as try some new ones. first things first... if you go to memebox best sellers this thing is like the holy grail... p.s. I believe they have a sale code that you can use on the mobile app every Monday.... I could not wait to try this out... I instantly wiped off most of my makeup and began to apply... this is supposed to replace harsh microbeads..... I can tell you it did more than any microbead scrub has done for me in years... even scrubs with charcoal can't live up to this... my dead skin melted away... it was amazing... today was the 2nd day I applied it... (only supposed to use it 2 to 3 times a week) so now I must take a sad break because some old dark spots from acne glided off.... in just two days..... This face wash isn't the most popular but because I love their carbonated bubble mask I went for it... the first day was pretty underwhelming and I wondered if it had been worth it... but today was a new day and my face felt totally amazing after using it... in fact I had to peel my hands away to add my mediheal tea tree mask... I'll update you on how this product works on my hormonal acne... I was able to find a serum in the states that seems to have relieved my forehead issues but the hormonal acne around my chin hasn't really improved... granted if I left it alone once and a while it might...

Korean face Mask, a break away from the animal masks.

So this card will cover two days using two different sheet masks that come from the acne mask set on memebox. Bringing in deep setting dirt from my face musk have been a big chore and my chin got really spotty a few days ago... I've noticed the rest of my face with the constant use of masks has become brighter and smoother... my cheeks and for head look great, even the dark spot on my forehead... which is actually just an old scar has shrunk and just this morning peeled away for new skin. Everyone seemed to be on the snail slime bandwagon when it came to redness fighting so I slapped this one on. I would have done a before and after but I'm telling you that this mask didn't really do a single thing for me.... it felt great and every AC mask covers my whole face but I didn't notice a reduction in redness... nor have I from any other snail slime mask... this one I slapped on last night... I was hesitant with broken skin because tea tree oil can burn but this mask felt so calming I left it on for 45 minutes... This morning I've noticed a reduction in redness on my chin and the spots are healing. the nice part for me is the constant use of serum masks has prevented big dry clumpy scabs which I rip off my face because it's a bad habit I can't stop and they look awful under makeup.... I know ... I know....

Korean face Mask Catch up!

hey guys... I'm dreadfully sick so I fell behind and also failed at taking some photos... lucky for you the only other animal face mask I used and didn't get a picture of was the raccoon mask.... Honestly... reading the ingredients I was like... hell to the no... but I bought it and I was promised results lol... you know what... I got them... my face was still recovering from my fingers... because of my bad habit I'm trying to curb but my fave felt and looked pretty decent after using this... I would say the healing process on some spots was cut in half... The placenta protein is for softening and Adenosine probably shouldn't be used by everyone as its a vasodilator... my theory is that I guess it's supposed to bring the blood vessels closer to your face to promote healing... but maybe I'm wrong... anyways... of you can get past the placenta part it gets an A+. Next I tried out the milky piggy carbonated mask.... I have to say... this product is an A++ product... I love how my face looks and feels after using it... Sometimes the bubbles get too intense and I have to pat them down... however smaller bubbles will come back so if your looking for entertainment it's almost endless.... almost lol.... make sure you put plenty on... too thin of a layer ay not get you any bubbles at all. this mask pulls the dirt out of your face without opening your pores to the size of craters... I definitely recommend... I may be extremely sick but I can see the difference in my skin through my makeup... its a little brighter and much less flaky and dry then it used to be.

Korean sheet Mask Day #2

so I used another animal mask and today I chose the sheep... my face has been clearing up so at first I just decided to go with this mask that I had no idea what effect it would have on my face... so it doesn't really look like a sheep and isn't as cute as the tiger mask but it smelled great :)... when I eventually removed the mask and rubbed in the serum I kind of hated it... if you are looking for something to open up your pores this will do it... and I mean my pores were giant... which I suppose did help me get rid of some deep black heads... but I kind of freaked out after falling back into my terrible habit of picking and grabbed a second mask specifically made for healing acne.... The blemish smart mask that comes with..... this little package of super charged serum... for crises... and since I had just majorly wreaked having on my poor face I decided it was only right... this mask is pretty unappealing lol but it feels great and sticks well to my skin... my nose it apparently too long though... this mask felt good on... this is probably close to 10 minutes after removing the mask... my skin is still kind of tacky and it's really slowly absorbing the serum... of course I know nothing will help my troubled forehead (that I caused after the first mask) but it does feel a whole lot less painful... I know in the picture it looks like it left some dark spots but those are just some unknown shadows lol I promise.
