Now, I don’t know about you guys but during quarantine I have been shopping like there’s no tomorrow. For why? I don’t know. ASOS and Cult beauty are probably sick of seeing my details on their website (they most definitely aren’t #capitalism) .
Amongst all the unnecessary stuff, there’s some things that are worth mentioning. I bought a few skincare bits that I’d love to talk about.
I’ve tried a few different vitamin c serums; I’ve tried one from bodyshop, but it didn’t really do much for my skin. I also tried a sample serum from drunk elephant, and even though I could see a difference, it wasn’t worth the hefty price tag. However, the glossier one has surprised me at how fast I’ve seen results. I love how lightweight it feels on my skin, and it is so easy to spread – it isn’t sticky at all. It leaves my face feeling radiant and bright, and since using this serum alongside the one I’m about to talk about below, I’ve got a lot of compliments (through zoom and facetime) on how glowy my skin is looking.
I’ve never tried a serum with hyaluronic acid before – I know the ordinary one is quite popular but I’ve also heard that it can be quite harsh if you have sensitive skin. I really like the milky consistency in this serum – it feels very nourishing on my skin. I’ve really enjoyed using the super bounce serum along with the vitamin c serum; I normally mix them together to get both hydration and brightness in my skin.
I have been on the hunt for a good mud mask, and I know the Pixi glow mud mask is very popular. This is a very recent purchase, and I’ve only used it twice as it is recommended to use twice a week. With this mask, a little goes a long way, you only need to apply a thin layer. Pixi describe this as a, “15 minute facial,” I need to use this a few more times to really see the difference it makes, but from the first use I can see why they have said this. My skin felt thoroughly cleansed and refreshed after using this mask.
