retinol, the skin saver

Hey there! Thank you so very much for checking out my blog. I really appreciate it. You could be anywhere but here you are with me. Just to let you know that this blog does contain some affiliate links, which I hope you will appreciate. If you so choose to click on these links you will not spend extra money but you will get some cash back with your purchase and for referring you I get some money too. It won’t make me an overnight millionaire but I will be able to continue providing you with some more content like this one.

The last time I wrote about Hyaluronic Acid and that did pretty well so today I thought I’d blog about Retinol as part of my #nablopomo challenge. Even though, I’m not a dermatologist I believe that the best data can be found through research and personal experience. Once we have said data, we should be able to share those findings so that you as a consumer can make the right choice for your lifestyle.

I have heard about retinol for a while but it wasn’t until a few of my favourite skin care influencers and dermatologists started talking about retinol that I began to pay attention. As a Black woman, I was always under the impression that since I was Black my face would not crack if I simply washed my face and applied a moisturizer. Then I got older and realized that the signs of ageing do not discriminate simply because I’m black. Also, I realized I needed more than a cleanser and moisturizer to deal with my seasonal temperamental skin.

On a whim I bought Retinol from The Inkey List. I wasn’t expecting much but I knew that I didn’t want to settle for whatever my skin decided to do on any given day. Also, the price point was really good and I got cash back on my Sephora purchase by using a cash back app called AMPLI so of course I was in.

Ampli is a cash back app that I use to get cash back on my purchases. If you sign up using the code AMPLI5 you will get $5 without purchasing a thing. That’s just for signing up. What do you think about that?

Let’s go back.

What is retinol?

Retinol is an alcoholized version of Vitamin A. It is often used to treat Vitamin A deficiency, but that’s not what we’re here to discuss. It is used in skin care to prevent wrinkles and take care of acne, which is right along my alley. More specifically, retinol is known to unclog pores, reduce acne breakouts as a result which therefore decreases acne scarring…because there are less acne appearing. It’s the catalyst to clearer skin so to speak. It’s also known for increasing the cell turnover rate which helps to show your best skin. If you’ve got some hyperpigmentation and/or dark spot, retinol might be a solution to try.

Some people may experience peeling and redness but that’s due to irritation which can be a side effect to retinol usage. Eventually, your skin will toughen up and build a tolerance to it. I personally did not experience irritation or peeling. Thank goodness.

I’ve just been using for a week so I haven’t really noticed much of a change to my skin, except for the hydration, and turns out that it can take up to 12 weeks to see the expected results. It’s also best to wear retinol at night to ensure that it’s not rendered inactive during the day. Not because of the sun but because we tend to do a lot with our faces during the day. As always consistency is king when it comes to long lasting change.

I bought The Inkey List Retinol Anti-Aging Serum from Sephora about two weeks ago. It comes in a white squeeze with black top. Everything about this packaging screams simple. It has no fragrance. The fluid itself has a gel like texture with a slight yellow tint. It’s quite thin for a gel-cream fluid. You don’t need a lot because a little goes a long way. I apply all over my face for an even finish right after using they hyaluronic serum. The serum has 1% retinol, 0.5% retinoid and squalane to hydrate and soothe.

Overall, I like it. The price point is perfect. The packaging is perfect. I can’t wait to see what my skin will look like.

Ampli is a cash back app that I use to get cash back on my purchases. If you sign up using the code AMPLI5 you will get $5 without purchasing a thing. That’s just for signing up. What do you think about that? There’s tons of places you can use it at not just Sephora. You should check it out.

Have you used retinol? How do you feel about it?

Bmasked Sweet tooth Face Mask Review

Hi there! I’m so happy that you could join me today on my blog. I’ve been committing myself to writing one blog post a day for the whole month of November and so far it’s been going good. If you’ve been following along, I hope that the information that I have been able to share with you has been valuable. If so please let me know in the comments section below.

Disclaimer: This link may post some affiliate links, which allows me to do what I love which is, sharing with you products that I absolutely love. Also to give you insight as to what I use in terms of skin care, hair care and/or motherhood and everything in between. By all means, click the links below.

Today I am finally going to review the BMasked Sweet Tooth Face Mask. I’ve been using this face mask for a while and I am loving it.

But let me back up.

BMasked Skin Care is a Female Canadian owned skin care company that is all about sustainability and using quality locally sourced ingredients to provide the best for your skin care needs. Believe me the quality of the products speaks for itself. This brand is all about executing excellence with each product that it creates. If you’ve used a BMasked product then you know exactly what I am talking about.

Today I have decided to focus on the BMasked Sweet Tooth Face Mask. Lately, I’ve been trying different skin care products and slowly becoming obsessed with whatever a popular TikToker has been hyping up. All while, adjusting my skin care regimen to fit my skin needs for the fall/winter season. Unfortunately, instead of doing my due diligence and researching the product before using it, I decided to fall headfirst into a situation where now my skin is actually peeling. My face is really sensitive and peeling. In other words, I messed up my face.

I used the Sweet Tooth Face Mask because I really needed something to soothe my over-stressed skin, sure enough it delivered as promised. This mask is soothing and it literally calms the skin down as it restores the skin. It contains locally sourced honey which contains anti-inflammatory properties which helps with breakouts. This I need, because not only is my skin is sensitive (due to my abusive ways) but it is also acne-prone (due to my genetic ways…). I love that it has finely ground espresso and date seed powder to gently exfoliate dead skin cells without causing any further irritation to the skin.

Also I love coffee…a lot, so the smell of coffee on my face is a bonus.

This mask has a thick texture with a light brown tint. You can see the tiny specks of the exfoliants in it. It smells like coffee, which personally it screams HEAVEN! I used a mini face spatula to apply it because it is sticky, which I like because it stays in place. I leave it on my face for about 10 mins and then I rinse it off. My face is soft, calm and feels blessed beyond measure. It’s perfect if you have sensitive skin and/or if you’ve been abusing your skin because you’re buying things you shouldn’t be buying.

I highly recommend this face mask. It is currently a staple in my skin care regimen and will be for a while.

Belif true cream-moisturizing bomb and youth creator-age knockdown review

Hi there! I just want to start off by saying thank you so much for checking out my blog. You could be doing anything, anywhere but here you are with me and this brings me so much joy. Just to let you know that this blog contains products that I’ve received from Influenster for free for testing purposes. Also, I have some affiliate links listed in this blog. If you so happen to want to try these items out and you purchase it from this blog you will be supporting me so that I can keep doing what I love. As always, all opinions expressed are strictly my own and I promise to spill all the absolute truth in this post.

For a while, I have been seeing Belif skin care pop up on my instagram feed. When Influenster decided to include me in their campaign I was all in. My skin tends to go from combination/oily skin to combination/dry once the season goes from hot to cold. My skin is not afraid to let me know that it requires moisture and more moisture as the seasons change. So I was pretty excited to try the Belif True Cream-Moisturizing Bomb and Youth Creator-Age Knockdown Bomb Serum.

True Cream-Moisturizing Bomb

This cream is described as a heavy cream that gives an explosion of moisture on the skin. It claims to provide up to 26 hours of moisture and is great for dull and flaky skin. Personally, I find that enticing since my skin tends to get so dry at times that it will flake. This heavy cream is cushiony and contains ingredients such as comfrey leaf, oat extract and panthenol. Comfrey leaf is an herb known to heal dry and calloused hands. Oat extract is known for its skin soothing and healing properties. Panthenol is great for attracting and holding in moisture, like a humectant. This cream is listed as good for normal, dry, combination and oily skin.

All of this is perfect for my skin as I transition my skin from fall into winter. Especially during the coldest months of the year it is needed, Canadian weather has not always been kind to my skin.

When I used the cream, I found that my skin readily and easily absorbed the cream. A little bit really goes a long way with this cream. It has a very pleasant and floral scent which is nice. It’s not distracting or overbearing. It goes away within a few minutes of application. It spreads very easily and can be used on the rest of the body not just the face. I really like how multifunctional its use is, even though I would just use it on my face. For now I plan to use it as night only because the weather is still mild. However, once the weather starts dropping into the negative double digits I will be using it twice a day to ensure my skin stays moisturized.

Belif Youth Creator-Age Knockdown Bomb

This anti-aging serum is described as a lightweight gel that is great for anyone who wants to reduce fine lines and wrinkles. It’s also supposed to reduce the appearance of enlarged pores and increase the skin’s elasticity to give off younger looking skin hence its name.

It contains ingredients like cedrol, winter aster and water pennywort. Cedrol helps to boost the skin’s elasticity and it’s firmness. Winter Aster is great for supporting the skin’s overall complexion. Water Pennywort helps to soothe the skin. It’s good to note that it’s vegan and comes in a recyclable packaging.

I personally loved this serum. It has this slight yellow tint but it goes on clear on the skin. It smells so good but the scent goes away right away. Like the cream, the scent gives me soft floral vibes and it’s not off putting. I found it moisturizing as well and very lightweight. The pump is easy to use and I just really like serum overall.

So this concludes my initial reaction of this anti-aging skincare duo. I will most likely continue using this alongside the rest of my skin care products. I have not seen any reaction that would cause me to stop and it seems to work well with my anti acne cleanser.

What’s your favourite cream these days? Let me know in the comments

By the way, you can purchase these items at Sephora as well which is great if you want to receive cash back on your purchase. By using Ampli you will receive $5 just for signing up and using the promo code AMPLI5. Then it’s smooth sailing from there.

Fall Skin Care Products

Hi there! Thank you so much for checking out my blog. Your support is greatly appreciated and believe me I do not take it for granted. This post does contain product that I’ve received for free but it does not change how I feel about them. All opinions expressed are simply and honestly my own.

When it comes to body care, the weather change may cause our skin to change drastically. The older we get more changes we notice and the more care we must take. I know with all the information that’s out there, it can be hard to find the right body care products.

Personally, my skin is in love with moisture, hydration and…did I mention moisture? It is the only thing that can satisfy my stressed, damaged and simply overdramatic skin. This is why I look for products with ingredients such as hyaluronic acid, niacinamide, shea butter and jojoba oil. All of these ingredients not only moisturize my skin but reinforce my skin barrier so that it can remain soft and healthy.

In my latest vlog, I mention my top 3 favourite body care products for Fall of 2020. I mention a fan favourite, a new found favourite and one that is from a Canadian Black Woman owned business.

Just because we aren’t heading outside doesn’t mean that our skin isn’t susceptible to the dry air in homes. This is mostly due to heater being on.

By all means check it out and let me know if your favourite made the list.

Vitamins & Minerals For Healthy Skin

Hi there! Thank you so much for checking out my blog. I really appreciate it. I’ve decided to take part in NaBloPoMo which stands for National Blog Posting Month. This entails me to write a blog a day, everyday for the month of November and I’m hoping to actually to pull through and finish this challenge with the same enthusiasm that I have started it with.

Here’s a little disclaimer, there may be some affiliate links in this post and this is a win-win for the both of us. If you choose to click on those, you get to save some money, get awesome service and I get a little bit of money which in turn will help me do what I love most, which is supplying you with the most informative blog post so that you can live your best life. Now that we’ve gotten that out of the way, let me introduce you to some of the most life changing vitamins and minerals that will help keep your skin glowing all year long.

When it comes to healthy skin, we all want to appear like we have it together. We want that refreshed, rejuvenated and healthy looking skin. When we look our best, we feel our best. So many times, cosmetic brands will have us believe that we need to break the bank and get the most expensive thing on the shelf in hopes to get results that most people only have when they photoshop their photos. I’ve done it. Believe me, I’m not judging. But do you know that you can help your skin out by putting these vitamins and minerals in your body and not just on your face?

Collagen

If you’re over the age of 30, you may have started to see changes in your face. Some lines may have started to appear and signs of ageing are very apparent around the laugh lines and eye area. This is where collagen comes in.

Collagen is a protein that forms most of the connective tissues in our bodies such as muscle, ligament and skin. In the skin, it’s responsible for skin elasticity and hydration. Without it, you guessed it? The wrinkles get a VIP pass on our face. As we get older, the production of collagen decreases in our skin, hence the fine lines.

Collagen supplements such, as Collagen Lift Canada are great. I personally noticed that my face started to look better after a week of use. I just pop the vial and drink like a shot.

Vitamin C

Vitamin C is another skin superpower. These days it is not uncommon to see serums, cleansers and many other topical cosmetic products with Vitamin C as a part of their formula.

For the most part, it’s been known to boost our body’s immune system. But that’s not all it does. It stimulates the production of collagen and helps protects the skin from antioxidant due to UV rays. I told you it was a skin superpower. Here’s to fighting off bad germs and wrinkles.

Omega 3

Omega 3 fatty acids are the ones we should thank for allowing us to stop stigmatizing the word fat. For awhile, I remember people not understanding that we all have fat and need fat to survive. It’s literally a part of our survival.

They are also a crucial part of our skin’s ability to have that healthy glow. You see, omega 3 helps to moisturize the skin and remove dry and itchy skin. This is because it helps the skin barrier function by keeping the moisture in the skin and keeping it from leaving. It’s like an entrapment for moisture in your skin. Furthermore, some researches proposed that they help the skin fight against the damages from the sun. So you see, fat is good for your skin.

Vitamin A

If you’ve heard of retinoids, then you’ve heard of vitamin a. These days it seems like everybody and their momma is hooked on retinoid or some form of it. And it’s completely understandable and justifiable.

When you ingest vitamin A, it goes through the liver and breaks down into retinol. Retinol(yes the very same retinol that Hyram talks about) is a key component is skin cell production. It speeds up healing, prevents breakout and supports the skin’s ability to defend itself against the toxins that it encounters on the regular. Believe me, it encounters a lot more than you would think. All of this is great news, if you’re looking to have acne-free, glowy looking skin.

I normally…

get all vitamins from Persona and I’m so happy that ever since I’ve been taking these I’ve noticed that skin looks better, I feel better and I generally am not too worried as much. As much as these vitamins are great for the skin, their function don’t just stop there. They are so multi funtional and purposeful when it comes to our general well-being and health.

Use the code Sandy50 to save 50% on your Persona order

Companies like Persona make it really easy for me and people like me to take the vitamins we need everyday, twice a day if need be . They have a team of scientist, nutritionist and researchers to provide over 40 vegan supplements. All you need to do is fill out a 5 minute survey to get your own personalized (it has your name on it too!) vitamins delivered to your door every month.

You can try out Persona and 50% off your first order by using the promo code Sandy50.

Is there any skin loving vitamins that I missed out on? Which vitamin or mineral do you swear by?

Five Ways To Put Your Best Face Forward

Hi there! Thank you so much for checking out my blog. Just to let you know I am not a dermatologist, esthetician nor am I, a skin care specialist. I am just a mom of who had problematic skin for the majority of my life and has now figured out a way to keep my skin looking pretty.

FYI, some of the products featured on this post have been gifted to me. However, all opinions are strictly my own.

Ever since, I entered puberty my face and I have been at war. Between the targeted acne commercial and the ill council of my elders I entered a battle I had no way of winning. I had oily skin, acne and nobody knew what to do to help. As I got older, I took control of my health and began to find inexpensive ways to restore on my chaotic skin.

Skin Care Regimen

shared91

First I needed a skin care regimen that actually would benefit my skin and my skin alone. Those I was living with, as a teenager, did not have the expertise to diagnose my skin. Also, it helps to be able to afford what goes on your skin.

Despite my oily skin, soaps were too harsh and the body creams were too heavy on my already battered skin. That’s when I started experimenting with different skin care lines until I found the right regimen for me.

Exercise

It goes without saying that nothing beats having your body move, getting the blood pumping and the endorphins flowing. Did you know that exercise keeps your skin looking amazing? By exercising you are forcing your blood to carry oxygen  and nutrients everywhere in your body including your skin. According to webmd.com, exercise also is a great way to release stress. Stress has been known to cause unnecessary visitors to appear on the skin. Those unnecessary visitors are acne. 

So if you needed another reason to start exercising, how about clear skin?

Healthy Eating

We’ve all heard about how junk food can negatively impact the health of our skin, turns out it’s not an old wive’s tales. There’s actually truth to it.

This is an affiliate link. If you choose to purchase these bars you won’t regret it. Use the promo code Sandy25 and save 25% on your purchase.

Healthline states that adding foods that are high in fatty acids you can help your body create collage which decreases the appearance of wrinkles. So go ahead and order that avocado on toast, your skin will thank you.

Vitamins

If you’re like me, you probably find yourself ordering out a lot, or snacking on chips and cookies more than you’d like to. So healthy eating may not be at the top of your list. To remedy that, I personally supplement with vitamins.

Lately, I’ve been indulging myself to the Neocell Beauty Bursts. They taste so good and they provide my body with collagen. A protein that is essential in the maintenance of my hair, skin and nails. Believe me, after birthing two babies I need all the help I can get.

Sleep

Beauty sleep is an actual thing and we all need it. According to Healthline, lack of sleep causes an increase in cortisol. If cortisol sounds familiar it’s because it’s been in so many fat reducing supplement commercials, which I’m sure you’ve seen. Cortisol is a stress hormone and too much of it can cause acne. It can also break down the collagen and hyaluronic acid in the skin. Collagen and hyaluronic acid are our skin friends and without them, our skin loses it’s pretty.

Final Thoughts

Maybe your skin care remedy is just a tweak in your daily routine or your lifestyle. Beauty is deeper than skin, but that doesn’t mean you should disregard. Put your best face forward, you totally deserve it.

What’s been the one thing you’ve done that has changed your skin for the better?

5 Ways To Know If It’s Worth Your Coin

Hey there! Thank you so much for checking out my blog. I really appreciate your support. If you do not already know, my name is Sandy Esprit and I’m here to help you keep your coin. All opinions expressed are completely my own, my hope is that you get the information you need to equip you the next time you find yourself  mindlessly scrolling and buying yourself so much hair products you end up with a small beauty supply store in your bathroom cabinet. Girl, you know you have a problem…but I’m not here to judge, lol. Besides, you want to enjoy the products you buy, right? 

20190524_132509812076081.jpg

Let’s get into it. 

Check the reviews

This is something every shopper should be doing. Just because your favourite influencer recommended it doesn’t mean that the general consensus agrees. Online reviews are thoughts and opinions expressed by the general public for better-ing ourselves…and investing in proper hair care. 

Now mind you this is not foolproof plan because every once in a while you’ll get a product that fits your personal needs that most people absolutely hate. Also if the product is new, you may get people using the product improperly. But once the product has been on the market for a minute, you can pretty much trust what’s out there. 

Research The Ingredients

inf_15444585802852122146018.jpgIf you want to know the quality of the product, then the ingredients will tell you everything you need to know about it. What the product is made of will most likely tell you how your hair will react to it. You never want to put something on your hair that will flake, be hard to absorb into the hair cuticles and/or give you false hope. For example, a hair product may promise to heal your deep fried (heavily damaged) ends, it’s a lie. Once your hair is damaged, it’s time for a cut. No matter of product can change that. 

How Fast Do You Empty The Bottle

20181022_1144561047272849.jpgThis is something I recently came to realization of. I bought this leave in conditioner and I really wanted to like it. I mean one of my favourite youtuber was behind it. It smelled amazing. The price was amazing for the amount given. The texture was light and fluffy. The packaging was user friendly. But there was one problem. I needed so much product to get the result I wanted to see in my hair. I was pumping away like an addict. Only when the bottle was empty did I realize that all that money could have been spent elsewhere. I went through the product like water. I’m still upset about it. 

Do Professionals Use It

20180209_1418401761445661.jpgThis one should be a dead giveaway. Professional hairstylist use quality products in order to provide quality service. If you trust a professional (I mean one that operates out of a salon and not your cousin’s bathtub) to do your hair, you trust the products they use. There is a reason why they use these products on your hair. However, if they won’t even touch the product with a 10 foot pole, chances are their reasons are valid. If they can’t make it work, then believe me you won’t be able to either. 

Does It Do What It Says

I know I’m probably preaching to the choir but it must be stated. If it doesn’t do what it says then you wasted your money. Mind you, you have to use the product as intended, the way the instructions say to use it. You wouldn’t expect a conditioner to act as a shampoo, right? You would expect a shampoo to act as a shampoo. If my shampoo leaves my hair dirtier than the way I started, then we have a problem. Same with a leave in conditioner. Many products claim to be really moisturizing but they are not. Sometimes they claim to be able to heal all damages due to a special ingredient, chances are you are getting duped. Make sure it does, what it says it will do. Otherwise, you are getting hustled out of your money. 

 

I hope this was helpful. Let me know if you have ways of securing your bag and keeping your coin in it. 

 

 

Easy DIY Fuschia Lip Colour

Hi there! Thank you so much for checking my blog. Your support is appreciated and I’m so glad you’re here. So many times I’m just in my bathroom experimenting with make up and I love it. I don’t always get the chance to do it because of my precious daughters’ need my attention but when I get the chance, I turn up and play with the colours I got. Just so you know, all opinions expressed are completely my own. Nobody is paying me to use their products are to talk about them. I bought it, I love it, I use it.

Why create your own lip colour?

I don’t know about you but I don’t always want to go out and buy a new lipstick simply because I need a colour that moment. In fact, I’m naturally a stingy person so I don’t like spending money. I’d rather invest creatively where my imagination can bring about something different. Turns out it’s actually easier to do than I ever thought.

The way I create a lip colour is very similar to highlighting and contouring my face. I prep my lip with a tint, I apply a base, I contour and then I highlight. I rub my lips and voila!

The Process

Below I created a video to better explain the way that I create this custom colour.

https://www.instagram.com/tv/CB2zu88HYow/?igshid=1i1k8c8zz0dvc

The lipsticks used in this video are

  • Maybelline Bold Colorsational Midnight Blue 840,
  • NYX Cosmetic Butter lipstick Licorice,
  • Revlon Colorburst Matte Balm Sultry 225,
  • Colorpop Ultra Matte liquid lipstick Flurries and
  • Manna Kadar liquid lipstick Lucky.

The key is go in light and add as needed. Otherwise, it’ll end up all over your teeth.

My 3 Step Skin Care Routine

Hi there! Thank you so much for checking out my blog. In case you haven’t been here before, my name is Sandy Esprit. I am happily married and blessed to with two beautiful daughters. My life is super busy but I always do my best to address my skin. For your information this post is not sponsored and all opinions stated are strictly my own.

The Background Story

Ever since my second daughter was born I had to transition once more into the world of sleepless nights and early mornings all the while being a wife to my then two year old and still functioning as a human being. Stress has never been a friend to my skin, therefore the appearance of acne and dry skin was not welcomed on this pretty little canvas I’ve worked oh so very hard to maintain. This of course was coupled with the appearance of  puffy eyes. Puffy eyes I knew was a sleep deprivation problem but acne and dry skin was not going to be tolerated no matter how exhausted I was.

Within the past six months I’ve curated a three step skin care routine that I can do daily and that don’t take up a lot of time. Considering I have two little ones to get prepare in the morning, time is of the essence. It’s a simple routine that I practice day and night.

The Routine

Cleanser: La Roche Posay Effaclar Purifying Gel

This cleanser has been a staple in my skin care routine ever since I was in university. I was introduced to it by a coworker of mine. My skin problem back then was just acne. I didn’t know anything about skin type but I am so glad she introduced me to it. It cleared up my acne and brought balance to my skin pH. It’s cleanses the skin without stripping it completely. It’s free of alcohol, paraben, soap and dye. Even though my skin is no longer oily, I still swear by it.

Serum: Strivectin Peptight Tightening & Brightening Face Serum

This face serum is what I needed and I didn’t even know it. Based on the name you already know what it does. It tightens the skin and gives it a glow by brightening. I love this because it doesn’t bleach the skin. It’s great for anyone who has dull skin and you’re looking for your skin to have that healthy natural glow.

Moisturizer: La Roche Posay Toleriane Ultra Fluide

If you have sensitive skin and you need a moisturizer that not only provides moisture but allows your skin to retain moisture this is it. It is a very light moisturizer that works wonders on skin that’s been through it all. It doesn’t irritate the skin at all and it is soothing. It is free of preservative, paraben, fragrance, lanolin, alcohol and dye. It is worth every dollar.

A good skin care regimen is the basis for overall skin health. It’s nice to look in the mirror and not have to deal with flaws or imperfections. It also puts my mind at ease that I can get in and out of bathroom and trust that the products I use will work as they say.

What’s your skin care products do you swear by?
