My TOP 5 Moisturisers for Combination / Acne Prone Skin

Blessed with high maintenance skin that gets oily and acne prone in summer and a little dry in winter, I keep experimenting with different moisturizers to find the ones that best suit my skin type. and I am so happy to share some which have worked really well for my skin. In this article today, I am covering all options from affordable to mid range to luxury moisturisers that are gentle on our skin type and never cause breakouts.  Here are my top 5: 1. Tatcha The Water Cream  This is one of the most gentle moisturisers I have ever used on my skin.  Usually, I expect my moisturiser to be a multi-tasker — provide youthful glow, brighten skin, etc. —  but this one only hydrates, yet there is nothing I would replace it for. When nothing else suits my skin, I come back to this. It has earned a permanent place in my skin care stash. Overall, absolutely and highly recommended. Tatcha's products are on a whole different level and worth buying.  MRP: 60 $ for 50 ml and 20 $ for 10 ml Color:

Klairs Freshly Juiced Vitamin E mask | Review

This is one of the best sleeping masks I've tried so far. Improves skin texture, brightens, hydrates and heals the skin while giving a glow from within.  Product claims: Boosting radiance and glow-  The freshly Juiced Vitamin E Mask hydrates the skin and enhances the effects of vitamin C products. It's formulated with Niacinamide and Adenosine, which give various skin improving effects and can also be used a gel type moisturizing cream .  Vitamin E  has skin softening, anti-ageing properties, soothes inflammation, and even shields skin against sun damage. Niacinamide is great for those with oily, acne-prone skin as it works to suppress sebum secretion for a more balanced complexion. Adenosine is found in every single one of our cells, to strengthen our skin by promoting collagen synthesis and has powerful anti-inflammatory properties, making it effective in wound healing and regeneration, and improving acne caused by oily skin. Directions : After cleansing, appl

The Ordinary Niacinamide 10% +Zinc 1% Review

Hola beauties! After falling in love with The Ordinary's AHA BHA peeling Solution (Check the review HERE ), I was eager to try more products from the brand.

Product Description/Claims:  Niacinamide (Vitamin B3) is indicated to reduce the appearance of skin blemishes and congestion. Minimizes pores, and regulates sebum. (Oil free, gluten free, vegan, silicone free, alcohol free) Note : While using topical Vitamin C, it should be applied at alternate times with this formula (ideally Vitamin C in the PM and this formula in the AM).
