Review: Cerave Moisturizing Cream I finished the 12 oz of this cream and am moving on to the 19 oz tub, so I figured it was about time I posted a full review of this product. Product Highlights: - occlusive - moisture-barrier restoring - lasting moisture - non-shiny, satin finish The moisturizing cream comes in a tub. For those of you who prefer products with a pump, you can pick up the version packaged with a pump in the lid. I personally don’t mind the tub and use a clean spatula to scoop out product to be extra cautious, but there is no need to do so- you can safely use your fingers to get product from the tub as well. Ingredient Highlights: Humectants: Glycerin, sodium hyaluronate Occlusive: Petrolatum Ceramides: NP, AP, and EOP Fatty alcohols: cetearyl and cetyl alcohol Cholesterol Tocopherol Why I love it: This cream does everything it claims to do- it’s a powerhouse that restores and strengthens the skin barrier. I like to use it as a final layer to seal in moisture and it really gets the job done. I use it consistently as part of both my evening and morning routines and I just haven’t found any other moisturizer that locks in moisture as well as this cream (other than Vaseline, which isn’t exactly suitable for daytime use). While it does feel a bit heavy on the skin, my skin gets so dry and compromised when I go without it that I am more than willing to live with that. Even my boyfriend loves slathering his face with this stuff and he has normal skin. Because the cream is so thick, I wouldn’t recommend it for oilier skin, but for those on the normal to dry side of things, this is a great product for moisture barrier support and locking in hydration. In the morning, I find I need to wait a minute or so after applying this cream so that it can dry down a bit before I move on to sunscreen application. Otherwise, it feels like the sunscreen is just sliding around on top. Fragrance: No Cruelty Free: No Repurchase? Certainly! Price Point: $19.99 for 31 oz @costco, also available at around $1 - $1.50 per ounce @target @cvs_beauty @ultabeauty @walmart What are your favorite CeraVe products?

Sharing another #haul with you guys today. This should be it for hauls for a while- I have quite a bit of a backlog of products to test at this point! This is my first order from @yesstyle! I had a really positive experience ordering from them. My only complaint is when a product in your order is out of stock, they delay shipping out your entire order until it comes back in stock. I wish they would ship the rest of your order and ship backordered items as they come in but it isn’t the end of the world. You can also choose to only order products that are currently in stock to avoid this issue.

My first #watershotwednesday ! Taking my first water shots was a blast! It definitely took a lot of patience though- it took hundreds of shots to land this one. Swipe to see a particularly spectacular failed attempt. I’ve already posted a full review of the @boscia Cactus Water Moisturizer, so look back in my feed if you want to know all of my thoughts on this product 💕 On a heavier note, my grandfather’s health has declined significantly and he is currently in the ICU receiving comfort care until he passes. Because of the pandemic, I can’t go visit him, but my heart is with him nonetheless. I am taking the day off from work today to process everything.

A quick #minimonday featuring a bunch of goodies I can’t wait to dig in to. I had such a relaxing weekend and took the time to rest and recharge, often a rarity for me. Between work, personal life, and posting daily on instagram, I’ve had little time outside of my skincare routine to just spend relaxing and focusing on myself. But this weekend, I took the time to sleep in a bit, paint my nails, and cozy up with some tea in front of the a fire.

Review: Nip + Fab Dragon’s Blood Fix Plumping Serum A quick review for #serumsaturday. Unfortunately, this one was a major miss for me. Product Highlights: 💉 Glycerin 💉 Sodium Hyaluronate Fragrance: Yes, undisclosed fragrance, linalool, limonene, and geraniol Cruelty Free: Yes Texture and feel: This serum is surprisingly silicone heavy. It has quite an unusual consistency for a serum- it feels much more like a heavy gel. My Experience: To be clear, I am not the fragrance police. I try to be conscientious about the amount of fragrance in my products, but I don’t mind it unless it is overpowering or irritating to my skin. However, in this case, the fragrance is quite strong and I found this serum to be very irritating. I cannot tolerate this serum on my face at all, so I can’t attest to whether or not it lives up to its promises of intense hydration and plumping. I now use it on drier parts of my body (elbows, knees, etc.) so that it doesn’t go to waste. I don’t know that it has really helped these areas, but it hasn’t made them worse either, so I will continue with this approach until I finish the serum. I am definitely looking forward to finishing this product and putting it behind me. Because I can’t tolerate this product on my face at all, I can’t really comment on how it wears throughout the day or layers with other products. Repurchase? Definitely not Price Point: $19.95 from @nipandfab . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . #serumsunday #thealglowrithm #thealglow #skincareproductreview #serum #nipandfab #skincare #beautyblogger #skincarejunkie #instaskincarecommunity #skincarecommunity

☀️Review: Cerave AM Facial Moisturizing Lotion SPF 30☀️ Product Highlights: ☀️ Niacinamide ☀️ Glycerin ☀️ Ceramides NP, AP, and EOP ☀️ Cholesterol ☀️ Hyaluronic Acid Fragrance: No Cruelty Free: No Part of why I picked up this product was because of reviews that claimed it has no white cast. In my experience, that has just not been the case. As someone with very fair skin, the white cast is hardly noticeable on me and hasn’t prevented me from wearing it, but I definitely would not recommend this product for those with deeper skin tones. As someone with extremely dry skin, I don’t find that a SPF with moisturizer is hydrating enough for my skin, and apply this product on top of moisturizer. When I use this as a standalone moisturizer, I found that it would flake off throughout the day, though I have not had this issue when applying it on top of moisturizer. I don’t know if the flaking was solely due to the dryness of my skin or if it has to do with the formulation itself, but this flakiness makes me hesitant to recommend it, especially to anyone who intends to use this was a standalone moisturizer. Repurchase? I probably would repurchase this if not for my tretinoin use. At this point, I would like to use a stronger SPF to give my skin a little extra sun protection while I am using tretinoin and my skin is particularly susceptible to sun damage.

My first #towerthursday featuring some minis I’ve picked up recently. I must confess my collection has gotten a bit larger than I would like, but there are still so many more products I want to try! I have started picking up minis so that I can test some goodies I’ve had my eye on before committing to a full size. I also have pretty sensitive and reactive skin so I never know what products my skin might react to. Minis, samples, and trial size products are a great way for me to try things out and see if my skin will react to them so that I don’t end up with full sized products that my skin just can’t tolerate. These are some minis of raved about products that I can’t wait to dig in to from brands I am ecstatic to try.

💕 Review: Rovectin Cica Care Sleeping Pack* 💕 *Many thanks to @wishtrend for gifting me this product in exchange for my honest review as part of the #wtbeautytester program. The following review is 100% my honest opinion as always. Product Highlights: 💕 glycerin 💕 betaine 💕 panthenol 💕 allantoin 💕 centella asiatica (cica) extract Fragrance: No added fragrance Cruelty Free: Yes First off, can we take a moment to appreciate this packaging? I love how simple and clean it looks. There is no added fragrance or colorants, but nonetheless, this sleeping mask has a gentle pink hue and subtle floral aroma that are quite pleasant. It has a gel texture, which is slippery enough to spread easily but then sinks in to the skin well, leaving the sense of a protective layer without feeling heavy, greasy, or sticky on the skin. Shortly after application, my skin appears softer, hydrated, and plump, with a reduction in redness and inflammation. In the morning after application, any spots and inflammation has been noticeably reduced and healed. I have been blown away by the healing properties of this mask, and how it has helped any spots clear up faster. This sleeping mask has me thoroughly impressed! I have very sensitive, irritation-prone skin and this product has been a dream! It has been incredibly soothing and hydrating. In fact, I have found myself reaching for this product even in the morning, especially when I have breakouts or irritation to be calmed. Because I have very dry skin, I like to seal this gel in with a more occlusive layer at night- I usually reach for petroleum jelly or the Cerave Moisturizing Cream. For those of you that have very dry skin like me, you might want to use this product with an oil, occlusive layer or both, but for most other cases, I think this is a fantastic standalone product. Repurchase? YES! Fortunately, I think this product will last me a while, but when I run out, I have no doubt that I will repurchase it. Price Point: 2.7oz for $34.00 USD @wishtrend
