Okay so a little background on my skin... I never used to use SPF, nor have I used a vitamin C serum which eventually resulted in a lot of sun damage and dull skin.
So I was looking for a well formulated L-Ascorbic Acid Serum that wouldn't irritate my skin and found this C-Firma beauty and I couldn't be happier with the results 🐘🍊
The key ingredients are:
- potent antioxidant complex (15% L-ascorbic acid plus ferulic acid and 1% vitamin E): firm & brighten the skin and improve signs of aging and sun damage.
- chronocyclin: a chronopeptide that mimics the antioxidant benefits of vitamin d for more youthful-looking skin
- pumpkin ferment and pomegranate extract: dissolve dead skin, minimize the appearance of pores and smoothen texture.
- grape juice: potent antioxidant that aids in improving skin tone.
- licorice root extract: brighten and promote more even looking skin tone.
- indian gooseberry: an antioxidant-rich superfruit that helps neutralize oxidative stress while firming the skin.
- sodium hyaluronate crosspolymer: penetrate skin deeply to hydrate, firm the skin and reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
- virgin marula oil: rich in antioxidants and omegas 6 and 9, helps nourish and rejuvenate skin for a youthful glow.
I've used C-Firma almost daily throughout these past 3 months and I've mixed it with the B-Hydra serum also from @drunkelephant
for extra hydration. I love everything about it, the smooth texture, airless pump packaging and the scent isn't too bad I actually started to enjoy it.
Looking at before and after pictures of my skin (swipe 📸) I just can't believe the change ❤ In 3 months this serum has evened out my skin tone, faded my pigmentation to nothing and brightened my skin. There's still some texture to my skin but it's radiant and glowing and thats all due to this #holygrail

Are you a box hoarder? My partner has definitely turned me into one. 😂
Oh man, remember the drama? I wasn’t sure if I was going to do a brand focus on this but after Truaxe was removed I feel more confident in posting this. .
Pictured: all @deciem
AHA/BHA Solution. For its potency and price - this is such a steal! It has a very berry - almost bloody - colour. While it stings a bit, my skin got used to it quite quickly. Gives me such a nice glow after I used it. .
Marula oil. I have oily skin so I don’t use this oil much. It’s a runny oil and I have to be careful on how much drops I put on my face because it’s the difference between looking glowy and oily. I found that it doesn’t sink as quickly as the drunk elephant one but overall not a bad product. .
Niacinamide + Zinc. I’m not sure how to feel about this one. It has good ingredients for its price but it’s quite sticky and I need to layer a moisturiser afterwards to make my skin feel better. I do notice that my dark spots and skin looks better after prolonged use of this but I’m thinking of replacing it - maybe a Paula’s Choice one? What would you recommend to me? .
Salicylic Acid. A good spot treatment especially when the spot is in its infancy or it’s underneath the skin. As I don’t often get spots anymore it’s hard to review it properly. It’s just one of my many acne fighters in my vanity that I have at all times. .
What’s your favourite @deciem

Sharing more of my @scentswatch
stash! Yes I love this brand so much.
I made 2 orders of the Champagne scent. Yes, that’s how obsessed I am with it. I also ordered another favorite, Nectarine. This is a dupe of Jo Malone’s Nectarine Blossom & Honey. I used to have a small bottle of it & I swear @scentswatch
got the scent of it spot on.
I also got the Lavender Pillow Mist since I’ve been having trouble sleeping. They claim that it helps induce a good night’s sleep. Lavender is also one of my favorite scents so I knew I just had to get one.
I really can’t stress this enough but @scentswatch
is one of the local brands we have that’s worth giving a try. I promise you, you won’t regret it. I already bought another batch of orders for me to give to my friends & loved ones!
Also, this holiday season, try also to give to the people that need it most who help you almost everyday in your life— your driver, maid, suking tindera, suking uber driver, security guard of your subdivision, pedicab driver, your company’s janitors, etc. No matter how big or small the gift may be, they will appreciate it & will consider it already as a big help. And i think that’s what the whole holiday season is about— appreciating the people who help us get by. Happy holidays, everyone! xx ❤️

A little jumble of some of my current favourite skincare products 👆🏼 The @cosmedix_
“Rescue+” mask is so hydrating in the skin, and perfect to sleep in over night and wake up with intensely hydrated skin 💧
Super super super HOLY GRAIL ALERT. 💥
Glossier Solution $24 for 4.4fl oz / 130ml
If anything I've used has drastically improved the texture of my skin, it's THIS.
So much so, I purchased 3 bottles last time so I wouldn't run out. 😅🤷🏽♀️
Get your hands on this, ASAP.
What are you favorite lip products? 💋 A few of my favs right here ✨
I picked up some #clean
products during the @sephora
sale. I’m super excited to try these products! I’ve heard great things about the @farmacybeauty
that I had to try it for myself. I’ve already used the @origins
charcoal honey face mask and my skin really likes it. I’ve also been eyeing the @biossance
squalene and vitamin c rosehip oil for a while so I finally took the plunge and purchased it. What clean products do you recommend? 🍯 🐝 #origins #biossance #farmacy #skincare
oh, you don’t have a fridge for your skincare?
Hey all!! Yes, i panic too when a post gets 3 days old and I dont have a new post yet? Is that weird?
No- dont hate me for not having a texture tuesday post!! Here are some skincare items I use to show dat glow ✨ If you’ve stayed with me for a while now, you would know I’m often on night shift and it often really makes me pale and makes my skin look so lifeless. That’s why I’ve also decided on investing these facial oils/serums so I won’t look too dead the morning after a duty.
One is a local facial oil and the other one has been one of the best selling facial oils on earth.
⭐️ @kiehls @kiehlsphilippines
Midnight Recovery Concentrate, one of the hg oils, contains primrose oil that repairs and boost skin elasticity,lavander oil that soothes irritated skin, squalane and a highly-refined botanical lipid derived from olives.
✨ what I love about it: if there is one facial oil that I should really REALLY invest on bec it literally saves my life each time- it would be this. It claims to work with the skin’s natural nocturnal activity when skin is most receptive to repairing itself.. its funny because beautymnl describes it as perfecr for Using after an all-nighter at work or a night out until the wee hours of the morning which is literally me !! and all I can say is the stuff is true to its claim and absorbs fast!! Plus it doesnt leave my face so greasy! My only con is that it is super expensive!! Hence I only have 4ml of this and I only use it after a whole week of duty and on my rest day. I have never found a good alternative until I found -
‘s glow facial oil. THIS IS MY FAVORITE 12.12 purchase!!! I love everything about this oil- not that this is a comparison post but kiehls midnight recovery concentrate absorbs faster than this imo. But this also absorbs fast! So for fast facts: this contains kukui nut oil, Apricot kernel which are both lightweight and moisturizing oils, there’s also jasmine oil in there for that rejuvinating feel, vanilla for healing and sandalwood for soothing the skin. My gosh and this smells SUPER FANTASTIC I would put this all over my body or I would place it on my humidifier bec man it smells that
❄️ BELIF ❄️
Whaaa, the weekend went by so fast! Going to power thru one more work week before taking off for the holidays 🎄 I love layering my moisture bomb over my aqua bomb for that extra plumpness. Have a great start Lovelys!

What I put on my face today😸
Time for a new eye cream!
I’ve heard about this brand #biossance
ever since @songofstyle
started using their oils and the glow that’s on her face is just 😍👌🏼 so I managed to get my friend to get me some goodies on their holiday trip as they don’t ship to Australia yet. Can’t wait to use this!
Have you tried any of Biossance products?
Review: Kjaer Weis Bronzer in Lustrous
I have 4 makeup products I actually use. One concealer, one bronzer, one highlighter, and one powder. That’s it. Therefore, each of those 4 products has to be stellar; I can assure you, Kjaer Weis makes the absolute best cream bronzer out there.
Price: $56 initial, 32 for refills. All of Kjaer Weis products work on a refill system so that minimal packaging is wasted when you repurchase. It makes for a hefty upfront, but a pretty mainstream price of the refill. I use so few makeup products, so I really just focus on finding what works and the price matters less. Its lasted over 6 months and I’ve used it daily. Definitely worth the price.
Color: The bronzer gives me the perfect, "whoops I forgot to re-apply sunblock" look. I prefer bronzers with more reddish undertones so they don’t pull grey or orange. I try to to fly under the radar with makeup and just look like I have delicious skin. It may look very shimmery in the pan but it applies with no shimmer or sparkles. I actually prefer it to most matte bronzers I’ve used because powder ones can often look dry or flat on me.
Texture: Creamy, but stays on all day as it’s almost a cream to powder formula. Because it’s cream, it takes a second to apply and I only need my fingers. It's really hard to mess up or overapply.
TL;DR: An absolutely perfect bronzer. Whether you’re a someone who just wants to look a little more sun kissed or someone who plans to use this in your full beat routine, I have absolutely no doubt you’ll love it. It’s a bit pricey, but worth every penny, especially if you try to keep a small collection of just holy grails like me. 10/10 will repurchase.

🇬🇧What's your favourite scent or perfumes? I'm still searching for ideal perfumes but I guess a majority of women in my family would answer this question showing you Black Opium or Opium in different versions - I guess I'm adopted since I'm more likely to smell a jar of ginseng mask than perfumes. I'm thankful for all the messages you've sent me yesterday, it helped me a bit with content planning but some of you didn't see Instastory so let me ask you - where did you found my account and what made you stay here a bit longer? 🇵🇱Jaki jest Wasz ulubiony zapach? Nadal szukam ideały, ale większość kobiet w mojej rodzinie by powiedziało, że Black Opium lub Opium w każdej innej wersji - chyba jestem adoptowana, bo od perfumy wolę wąchać słoiczek z maseczką z żeń szenia. Dziękuje za wiadomości, które wczoraj otrzymałam, pomogły mi zaplanować content, ale wiem, że nie każdy Instastory sprawdza więc pozwólcie, że się zapytam - jak dotarliście na moje konto i co sprawiło, że zdecydowaliście się zostać ze mną dłużej?

knows a thing or two about scrubs
This product is literal perfection. I have never had a body scrub that smells this good and works this well! I have always been intrigued by the brand but could never use the traditional coffee based scrubs. When they released this Green Tea based scrub I knew I had to have it. I truly understand now the hype around this brand. The scrub has a beautiful grainy-ness to it that scrubs all the nasty dead skin away with out being too harsh. And did I mention that it smells divine?
What else do I need to try from this brand? Let me know in the comments below!
A little “pick me up” to get you through this Monday afternoon... 🙌 #topshelfie

I have really enjoyed using this green beauty bag from @thechoosychick
this past weekend (full details in my story highlights), The Choosy Chick is dedicated to researching and selecting the finest non-toxic health and beauty products 💄👄🌿and you can shop from a great selection of brands on their website. .
This bag is packed with with some amazing full size and sample size goodies that are natural, safe and clean. Best of all each bag purchased makes a donation to the Living Beyond Breast Cancer 💗. Here’s what’s featured in this bag:
🐥Lily Lolo Sculpt and Glow Bronzer/Highlighter Duo 🐥Hollybeth Organics Chamomile Rose 🐥Geranium Gel Face Cleanser 🐥28 Litsea Tinted Petala Lip Balm in shade IN LOVE 🐥OGEE Sculpted Lip Oil in Clear 🐥Orgaid Hydrating Sheet Mask
🐥Kosmatology Foaming Hand Soap 🐥Badger Sleep Balm 🐥Dr. Alkaitis Beautifying Face Mask 🐥Au Naturale Lip Gloss in Slip 🐥Graham Gardens Avocado Oatmeal Soap 🐥INIKA Organic Primer 🐥Raw Elements Sunscreen 🐥OGEE Skincare Daily Facial Cleansing Wipe🐥Boho Chic Cosmetics Travel Zipper Bag .
I also received a full size version of the Kosmatology Foaming Hand Soap in the Frosted Pine scent which is not included in this bag.
One product that I was very impressed with was the Orgaid Hydrating Sheet Mask: love love this sheet mask, it comes with a generous amount of serum so I was able to spread it on my neck and décolletage. I left it on for 30 min because I wanted my skin to get the full benefit of the organic ingredients. When I took it off I felt like I just got a spa quality treatment 🧖🏻♀️! My skin was instantly supple and radiant and I didn’t have to moisturize after. Will definitely be purchasing 🙌🏻.
This green beauty bag is a great value for the price and would make an excellent holiday gift 🎄🎁 especially for green beauty lovers. So get your hands on it while it lasts!

* sent a few of their products awhile ago and I’m finally getting around to posting about them! Since there’s four of them, it took me a little longer to gather some thoughts on them.
🍊 Glow Boost Essence — I love the texture of this. It’s not too thick but not super light, it’s just perfect and absorbs really fast. Makes my skin smooth and hasn’t given me a reaction. I don’t have a lot of hyperpigmentation so I can’t speak on that, but it did help with redness around pimples. Not a fan of the fragrance in it, it’s rather unnecessary, but overall a good product.
🍊 Glow Lumenessence Brightening Lotion — This is my favorite product, for sure. I loved using it as a toner or when I don’t feel like doing a whole routine. Pretty hydrating and gives me a nice glow. Tbh, results-wise, it reminds me of the Pixi Glow Tonic. Again, fragrance is unnecessary.
🍊 Arctic Berry Cocktail Brightening Hydra-Oil — This is really interesting. It’s a bi-phase hydra-oil. Super moisturizing and I strongly recommend this for the winter months. Love it. Not a fan of the packaging as I prefer dropper bottles for oils. Again, the fragrance problem.
🍊 Bright Eyes All-In-One eye treatment — Not my favorite eye cream out there. I like the packaging as it makes it easy to use the product, but I saw no results from it. I’m just not an eye cream person. 🤷🏻♀️
Have you tried this brand? I’ve seen lots of people talking about it and the feedback seems mostly positive! Let me know your thoughts! Also, do you love how they made their products literally the same color as an orange? I’m living for colorful skincare items. ✨
