My empty skincare products in January

Paulas Choice - Resist Daily Pore Refining Treatment 2% BHA - This exfoliating treatment is one of my favourite BHA products. Absorbs fast and completely disappears without leaving any tacky residue. Helps decongest skin and prevents congestion. I’ve used several bottles of this and have a backup waiting but first I will try Biologique Recherche- Lotion P50.

.

Paulas Choice - Calm Redness Relief Serum - A great calming and hydrating serum filled with ceramides and hyaluronic acid. This has been a saviour when my skin is red and sensitized and I already have a backup but I have to finish some other serums first.

.

Jordan Samuel - Hydrate Facial Serum - This serum has a gel texture that is really hydrating and calming. Contains hyaluronic acid, Vitamin C, and hexapeptides combined with cucumber, tamarind, and passion flower extracts. I love this serum and will repurchase as soon as I’ve use some other products in my stash.

.

Episilk - Hyaluronic Acid Serum - This is a powerful hydrating serum. I’ve finished several bottles. The texture is rich and therefore it’s more appropriate for nighttime use or for no makeup days. (It can pill under makeup). Mostly I use this layered with a hydrating mask at night. This is a staple in my stash and I have a unopened backup in my stash.

.

Niod - Superoxide Dismutase Saccharide Mist (SDSM) - This has become my favourite mist. Act as a fundamental daily force against oxidative stress, water loss and inflammation. The Yeast-Derived Superoxide Dismutase (SOD) fights against oxidation, Purified North American Four O' Clock Flower reduces inflammation, and the Marine Exopolysaccharides is able to prevent water loss leaving skin plump and hydrated. This must can also work as a makeup setting spray. Of course I’ve got a backup of this.

.

Paulas Choice- Niacinamide booster 12% - The formula is a blend of natural calming and superior hydrating ingredients. Claims to reduce the appearance of enlarged pores, uneven skin tone, wrinkles, and dry skin. Includes soothing agents to promote visibly calm skin. Antioxidants and skin-replenishing ingredients make this product a multi-tasking product that is a cornerstone in my skincare routine. I have used several bottles of this and will continue use it in my AM routine. I think it helps prepare and protect my skin to better tolerate my exfoliating products/acids.

.

Niod - Multi Molecular Hydrating Complex (MMHC) - This serum is filled with 15 different forms of hyaluronic compounds. The texture is lightweight and it quickly absorbs to the skin. Makes my skin plumped and hydrated. Love to mist the SDSM before application of MMHC to make the most of the absorption of hyaluronic acid. Have a backup of this also but I need to finish some other serums first.

.

Mad Hippie - Face Cream - This lovely cream smells like candy. It’s packed with peptides, antioxidants and anti aging ingredients. I loved this cream during summertime but in wintertime sadly my skin is more sensitive and can’t handle active anti aging ingredients. The texture is like a lotion and easily absorbs to the skin.

.

Badger - Vanilla Orchid Antioxidant Body Oil - I love the scent of this oil. It’s a super concentrated yet lightweight moisturizer that leaves skin supple and radiant. Contains powerful antioxidants from pomegranate and sea buckthorn. This product sadly seems to be discontinued :(

Exuviance Vespera bionic serum
.
My all time HG serum is without doubt Exuviance - Vespera Bionic serum💕
I think I’ve finished around 5 bottles. This is the serum with the best combination of hydrating, antioxidant and exfoliating properties I’ve ever used. Love, love, love!
With regular use, Vespera Bionic Serum visibly improves fine lines and wrinkles and skin texture. Wonderful on its own but can also be used as a booster under other treatments or moisturizers. Formulated with marine botanicals, this serum is suitable for all skin types, even the most sensitive skin and acne. Formulated with AHA, PHA and pro-vitamins A, C and E. A marine botanical helps to smooth stressed skin. It provides synergistic antioxidant protection and essential nutrition for the skin.
It exfoliates the skin to improve the appearance of stressed or damaged skin. Mandelic and lactobionic acids speed cell renewal and reduce the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles and hyperpigmentation. Clinical results show a 212% improvement in skin clarity after 6 weeks of use. I don’t know about that statement but I can absolutely see a diffrence in the texture of the skin. Also love the smell of all products from Exuviance. The texture is like a quite thick but fast absorbing gel.
Will alway have this in my cabinet. I have an unopened back up but have to finish some other opened bottles of serum first.

Exuviance OptiLight Essential 6 serum
.
This powerful serum is a dark spot reducing serum. This is a perfect product to add to the treatment of pigmentation in combination with acids and a vitamin C serum. It’s really hydrating and fast absorbing. I’ve sometimes mixed this with my Vespera serum for more effect. Will make a full review after I’ve finished the bottle.
Claims to gently exfoliate the skin and helps to ensure a more even and luminous complexion. It minimizes the appearance of dark spots brought on by aging and overexposure to the elements. The unique formula concentrates eleven potent brighteners to target 6 pigment control systems, helping break up and reduce the visible intensity of existing darker pigmented areas, and discourages new spots from forming. Patented NeoGlucosamine and pigment evening peptide blend is enhanced with proven botanical brighteners. Licorice and pure active botanical ingredients are extracted from seven Alpine Plants, including Mallow and Ladys Mantle, proven effective skin brighteners.

I’m so happy I found this product😍It made me realize that ceramides is everything for my skin. My skin easily gets dry and sensitive from acids and low humidity but since starting using ceramides in my skincare this almost never happens. In summer I used it in the morning as a moisturizer and now I’m using it as a serum. (In the evening I’m using @stratiaskin - Liquid gold that is slightly thicker and also contains ceramides).
.
The content of some silicones helps to lock the moisture in skin and also makes a super smooth priming base for the SPF and make up.
It’s rich in omega fatty acids, potent antioxidants and skin-restoring ceramides. The light, lotion-style serum instantly replenishes, repairs and strengthens the skin’s natural barrier, for healthier, younger-looking and more supple skin. Flaxseed and chia seed oils (omegas 3 and 6), linoleic and linolenic acids (omega-9) and Passiflora edulis seed oil (omega-9) instantly nourish dehydrated skin to restore a healthy, natural looking complexion.
Love it and will absolutely continue to repurchase💕

#renskincare - Radiance perfection serum. A creamy hydrating antioxidant serum with vitamin C and hyaluronic acid. My pigmentation from summer has slowly faded and my skin has a more even skintone. The hyaluronic acid plumps and hydrate the skin. Glycogen and Magnesium boost skin energy and radiance.
This is a really good product but now I’m moving on to a more concentrated vitamin C serum for hopefully even more powerful illuminating results.
The content of Radiance Perfection serum is natural and completely free from Parabens, Sulphates, Mineral Oil, Petrolatum, Glycols, Silicones, PEGs, synthetic dyes and fragrances, to boost skin’s natural processes of renewal and repair, without any quick-fix chemicals.

#skinceuticals - CE Ferulic
.
C E Ferulic features a synergistic antioxidant combination of 15% pure vitamin C (L-ascorbic acid), 1% vitamin E (alpha tocopherol), and 0.5% ferulic acid to enhance protection against environmental damage caused by free radicals that can contribute to atmospheric aging. This vitamin C serum helps neutralize free radicals induced by UVA/UVB, infrared radiation (IRA), and ozone pollution (O3), which may lead to visible signs of accelerated skin aging.

#decleor - Aroma sun expert protective anti wrinkle cream SPF 30✨
.
This chemical SPF absorbs fast and doesn’t leave any white cast. In summer it acts as a lightweight moisturizer. In the winter I use it over moisturizer and serum. It makes a great base for makeup.
It claims to provide the skin with a targeted wrinkle action and contains a cocktail of essential oils (Rose, Camomile, Geranium) that work in synergy to increase cells natural defences against sun damage. Smells lovely of the essential oils. Guarantees high protection against sun rays (UVA-UVB filters), provides long-lasting hydration and helps prevent skin ageing due to sun exposure. It claims to help reduce the appearance of wrinkles and smoothes fine lines due to sun exposure.
.
I will continue to use this as a daily moisturizing SPF. Have some small sample-sized bottles at home but will first finish some other opened and unopened bottles of SPF.

Nourishing and protecting organic cream for dry skin from the Swedish organic brand Maria Åkerberg. My skin is smooth and hydrated after application and the cream makes a great base for SPF and makeup. This is a perfect cream for winter when the humidity is low. Soothes and minimizes skin redness and increases the skin´s ability to withstand damage. Contains lavender and calendula, which protects skin against damage, and provides skin with moisture. It has a lovely mild scent of lavender and geranium. My skin is easily congested, but not with this cream. The affordable price makes it even better.
.
Will probably repurchase later but have some other darlings to use first.

Oil

I need an oil in my skincare routine both in the morning and in the evening. My skin is oily but it's also dehydrated and a bit dry. An oil mixed with a hydrating serum I found out is the proper way to make sure my skin stays hydrated and smooth. But it can be a little tricky to find a proper oil for a combination skin.

Estelle & Thild - Multi nutritient youth oil

I really liked the Estelle & Thild Multi nutritient youth oil. It's a mix of super-fruits enriched with powerful antioxidants, vitamins and essential fatty acids. These elements create a super oil that combats the early signs of aging and hydrates the skin from the inside out. This oil is certified organic and has a nice scent of fresh citrus, it's a mix of different oils, vitamin E and some essential oil. My skin tolerates the essential oil in this product well.

I will probably repurchase this oil but i will first test the Jordan Samuel one.

Certified Organic. 30 ml

INCI: prunus armeniaca kernel oil*, prunus amygdalus dulcis oil*, simmondsia chinensis seed oil*, rosa canina fruit oil*, dipalmitoyl hydroxyproline, palmitic acid, tocopherol, aqua, parfum, citronellol, geraniol, limonene, linalool.

*Ingredient from Organic Farming.

100% of the total ingredients are from natural origin. 99,59% of the total ingredients are from Organic Farming. Natural and Organic Cosmetic certified by ECOCERT Greenlife according to ECOCERT

Jordan Samuel - ÉtOile facial oil

I've read so many positive reviwes of this oil so I decided to try it out.

First ingridient on the INCI is sweet almont oil and I know my skin loves that.

Description - étOILe is an all-encompassing moisturizer, multivitamin and antioxidant facial oil. It contains a high concentration of cranberry seed oil, which is the only oil to contain a 1:1 ratio of omega 3 and 6 fatty acids, as well as all 8 vitamin E groups. It also features skin balancing Argan and Marula, which pair with vitamin C ester and CoQ10.

Ingredients: Prunus Amygdalus Dulcis (Sweet Almond) Oil *Organic, Vaccinium Macrocarpon (Cranberry) Seed Oil, Argania spinosa (Argan) Kernel Oil, Sclerocarya Birrea Seed Oil (Marula) Oil, Oenothera Biennis (Evening Primrose) Oil *Organic, Rosa Rubiginosa Seed Oil (Rosehip) Oil, Tetrahexyldecyl Ascorbate, Hippophae Rhamnoides (Seabuckthorn) Oil *Organic, Ubiquinone, Tocopheryl Acetate (Vitamin E), Squalane

Hydrating serum

Grown Alchemist - Detox Serum Antioxidant +3 Complex

Description: This lightweight, oil free instant absorbing serum is recommended for daily use to detoxify the skin of not only traditionally targeted Oxygen free radicals but also Carbon and Nitrogen free radicals. The result: the skin is noticeably detoxed of free radicals metabolized by the body as a result of factors like diet, and environmental factors like air pollution or UVB/UVA rays from the sun.

Tri-Peptides and complex Antioxidants targeting Oxygen, Carbon and Nitrogen free radicals combine leaving the skin hydrated but more importantly noticeably without wrinkle causing free radicals,

My opinion: I love that this serum is organic, it contains peptides for an antiageing effect, it's rich in antioxidants, vitamin B5 and Niacinamide. Contains some essential oil like linalool and has a discrete scent of citrus. My skin doe's not react bad to this. This lightweight serum is though a little bit to lightweight for my dehydrated skin. It needs a bit more thick formula in a serum. The pros with this lightweigt formula is that it's really easy to mix with an oil and it immediately absorbs into the skin.

INCI: Aqua (Purified Water), Aloe Barbadensis (Aloe Vera) Leaf Extract, Dimethyl-methoxy Chromanol (Antioxidant), Panthenol (Provitamin B5), Niacinamide (Vitamin B3), Aqua (and) Diaminopropionoyl Tripeptide-33 (and) Caprylyl Glycol (Naturally Derived Peptide), Sodium Dehydro-acetate (Organic Listed), Hydroxyethylcellulose (Polysaccharide), Glycerin (Plant), Phenoxyethanol, Polysorbate 20 (Plant), Pelargonium Graveolens (Geranium) Oil, Cananga Odorata Flower (Ylang Ylang) Oil, Lactic Acid (Plant), Citral (Plant), Geraniol (Plant), Citronellol (Plant), Linalool (Plant).


Jordan Samuel - Facial Serum Hydrate

My pick of replacement serum for the Grown Alchemist serum is the Jordan Samuel one.

I'm really curious of the brand and I like that this product contains some organic componens and hyaluronic acid. Hyaluronic acid is a really good ingridient for my dehydrated skin. It also contains some peptides and antioxidants. Have not tried it yet but I hope the formula is a bit thicker than the Grown Alchemist one.

Description: Hyaluronic acid, stabilized Vitamin C, and hexapeptides combine with cucumber, tamarind, and passion flower extracts to give you healthy, dewy skin all day long.

INCI Aloe Barbadensis Leaf Juice *Organic, Vegetable Glycerin *Organic, Hyaluronic Acid, Sodium Ascorbyl Phosphate, Xanthan gum, Gluconolactone, Tamarindus Indica (Tamarind) Fruit Extract, Cucumis Sativus (Cucumber) Fruit Extract, Passiflora Incarnata (Passion flower) Extract, Acetyl Hexapeptide-51 Amide, Sodium Benzoate, Salix Nigra (Willow) Bark Extract *Organic

Estelle & Thild - Biocalm Anti-redness Rescue Serum - It's a calming, soothing and hydrating serum with natural and organic content. This serum has a light-weight formula. The formula is enriched with Black Elderflower, Apricot and Oat Extract offering maximum hydration and boosting the skin’s natural glow for added radiance.

My opinion: Love the beautiful packaging. I have tried some other serum från Estelle & Thild and I'm really impressed by these poducts. This serum has a calming effect when redness appears in the skin. Love the organic and natural content and will probably repurchase. Right now my calming serum is Paula's Choice redness relief and they are quite similar.

Badger Company - Face Oil - Damascus Rose - An antioxidant-rich, certified organic blend of precious plant oils formulated to restore and protect delicate or dry skin. This uplifting floral blend features Damascus Rose essential oil, a concentrated extract of rose blossoms, handpicked at dawn and steamed distilled the very same day. Clinically tested non-comedogenic. Claims to reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.

My opinion: I have mixed this oil with my serum. The formula is on its own a bit to rich for my oily combination skin. The scent of roses can be a bit to strong if you are sensitive also the essential oils can be irritating on your skin if you are prone to sensitiveness. My skin is pretty resistent to essential oils so for me it's not a problem. Probably won´t repurchase because I'm not a fan of the scent.

Maria Åkerberg - Serum - Antirouge - Hydrating and calming serum that claims to strengthen the blood vessles and has an anti inflammatory and calming effect. Good for sensitive skin.

My opinion: Maria Åkerberg is a Swedish brand with a organic product range and a good price tag. This serum is a good alternative for sensitive skin that needs some soothing hydration. It has a little more rich formula than the Estelle & Thild biocalm serum. My skin is very dehydrated so I mix this with an oil to get some more hydration. I love the natural and organic content. Calming effect when redness appears. This is a really good and effective budget option.

My opinion: This mist is one of my favourites. This was my second bottle. I'm impressed by the INCI-list with natural and organic content. It contains calming, hydrating, anti-aging and organic ingridients. The downside is that the bottle only contains 30 ml but it's a quite handy size having in the purse. Good that the product comes in a dark glass bottle to protect the antioxidants from oxidation. Good combining with the serum in the picture (review comes later)

Maria Åkerberg - Foot cream - Keeps your feet soft, fresh and hydrated.

My opinion: This is an organic foot cream for daily hydration. It has a thin consistency and sinks in to the skin really quick. For my dry feet I would need a more rich cream but this is perfect for daytime when combining with a more rich cream at night. Love the natural and organic content. Really good price.

Estelle & Thild is a Swedish skincare line I really love. Their products contains organic natural ingriedients. I love the beautiful design of the bottles and that the products has a pleasant natural fragrance.

This serum and oil are a nice combination to mix to receive deep and long lastning hydration with an antiage effect.

Super bioactive age control serum is an age-defying serum. This bioactive concentrate revitalizes the skin, boosts moisture levels and prevents the appearancew of lines and wrinkles.Microalgae is a natural antioxidant, which nourishes the skin at the cellular level. Microalgae Extract is proven to be 550 times more effective than vitamin E, this high impact antioxidant works overtime to repair stressed and tired complexions.

Biodefense multinutritient youth oil contains superberries that are enriched with powerful antioxidants, vitamins and essential fatty acids. These elements come together and create a super oil that combats the early signs of aging and hydrates the skin from the inside out. This agedefying line is packed with antioxidants and nutrients that prevent oxidative damage. Nature and science come together for younger looking skin with a boost of balmy radiance. Nordic Superberry Complex, rich in powerful antioxidants and vitamins, accelerates the skin´s healing process. The unique formula delays signs of aging linked to collagen and elastinrigidity, which cause wrinkles.

This mix of serum and oil gives you a feeling of luxury and hydration. It's a perfect base for the next steps in your skincare routine for a radiant complexion. My skin loves it.

I've earlier used some other products from the Estelle & Thild line and never got disappointed. I will absolutley continue to try out some more products.

Im very impressed by Paula's Choice - Redness Relief Repairing Serum and Paula's Choice - Resist 10% Niacinamide booster.

These little darlings have helped to almost completely cure the current eczema on my neck in just one week. I have used at least one of them in my skincare routine every day in the morning or/and in the evening last week. I've noticed that my skin is more hydrated and calm with less redness and acne than the week before. I've continued using my acids as usual.
The booster I have also tried with some other serums and it seems that it gives that extra boosting moisture on a deeper level of the skin.

Both of the products contain antioxidants. The booster contains Nicacinamide that is a form of vitamin B3 that is good for shrinking pores, wrinkles, acne scars and pigmentation.
The serum contains hyaluronic acid for hydration and antioxidants that have an antiinflammatory effect.


On my neck I will continue to use this combination and for my face I will continue using the booster with all of my serums and the redness relief serum I will reach for days that I want a calming effect when my other serums will be to active.
