[Anzeige] As always, giving my skin some extra love on Sunday. This time it’s a facial massage using this Crystal Contour Gua Sha* from @odacite & their Pure Elements range—I find that their oil serums are perfect for this.
- - -
Here are my two favourite face serums for this type of regime:
🌺 All Embracing Serum* designed to hydrate the skin with Watermelon seed & Hibiscus flower in it—a winter staple for me.
🌹 Ac+R (Acai Rose) Youthful Glow serum* that I got from their Paris to LA Gift Set ➡️➡️
As you might’ve known, the superfood Acai berry is super rich with antioxidant. It helps to improve the skin texture, the tone & firmness. And it does make my skin tighter in good way, my skin also feels smoother & more plump each time I use this serum.
The texture is silky & quite thick, but no worries because the skin can absorb it quickly without any residue. I have to mention the floral scent is definitely therapeutic💆🏽♀️

🌿 This set also has Ba+S (Baobab Sarsaparilla) Eye Contour serum*
As I’m not getting any younger, I think it’s time to be more caring with my delicate under eye areas. Thankfully I haven’t got any sign of fine lines, but dryness has always been my biggest problem.
I love that this oil doesn’t irritate my eyes. Hydrating without being greasy. The texture is light, and again—the skin just perfectly absorb it. This serum also has a fresh & wonderful smell.
Have you tried Odacite products?
I think I’ve made it perfectly clear that I have struggled with not the best skin over the past 5 years or so. (My teen skin was great. Ironic.) It wasn’t really cystic acne or anything huge. Just A TON of clogged pores and tiny pimples everywhere. (And no. Going vegan/low fat/no soy/no gluten didn’t help) My skin was also so rough and textured that makeup was even a no-no because it looked like flakey mud. Over the past few years, I’ve tried so many vegan/CF products without much change till recently. That’s why I’m super excited to share my new skincare routine with you guys. I put the link in my bio. Nothing is sponsored. I pay for all these products myself. Some of them are not that cheap but honestly I am just so excited to find something that works. Maybe in the future I will try to find a couple affordable alternatives.
💚 Earth Day Balm ~ made with organic raw ingredients that provide intense moisture. Great for rougher areas of the skin (feet, elbows, knees) and dry, irritated skin.
Ingredient Highlights: Organic Jamaican Black Castor Oil (dark), Organic Hempseed Oil, Organic Chickweed Calendula and Chamomile Infused Jojoba Oil, Organic Unrefined Grade A Shea Butter, Organic Local Beeswax, Organic Pure Essential Oil Blend 🌱
Always gently pat your skin dry there is no need to rub your skin hard.
To best treat dry, irritated skin apply moisture directly after shower or bath while you're still a little damp. This is when your pores are open so the organic butters and oils can penetrate deep into your skin and provide the most nourishment 🌱♻️💚😚
Deep red holo ❤️✨ @ilnpbrand Diablo is one of my favorite red polishes! Since it has a jelly formula that gives it depth, I’ve gotten a lot of compliments and questions this week saying that it looks like a gel polish. For anyone who likes red, this is a great holiday staple!

Movement at it's finest: "@mistermichaelmontgomery of @linesballet taken for @camerasanddancers at @deyoungmuseum. I watched this beautiful company perform the other night that left me with deep inspiration for their artistry. Alonzo’s craftsmanship and composition is pure with depth."
@mellownaturals is a cruelty-free, clean, Thai-inspired skincare brand. these beauties* are each designed to target different skin issues & I’ve had the chance to try them all: ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
🌱 hydration drops (w/ argan, rosehip, & strawberry face oil) - I love rosehip oil so was immediately drawn to this. I tend to go for argan on other parts of my body but found this super hydrating & non-greasy, as long as you're only going in w/ a few drops. my fav way to apply is mixed in w/ a gel or cream that maybe isn't quite as nourishing as I want it to be - these drops totally transform the product to give me the hydrating boost I want. it's packed w/ vit a, e, c, & tons of antioxidants!
🌱 clarifying face serum (w/ sophora root) - sophora root is in fact a chinese herb & not what we all read it as. this serum is an acne-sufferer's dream. in addition to sophora root, it contains salicylic acid, tangerine peel extract, & picea excelsa extract, all of which have anti-inflammatory & anti-microbial properties to control acne & sebum,. I'm not sure if my scars have improved, but I'm experiencing (marginally) fewer breakouts & calmed redness.
🌱 vit c natural glow face serum - this serum contains vit c in the form of magnesium ascorbyl phosphate, which is more stable but less potent than L-ascorbic acid (which is in the "big guns" like DE c-firma). this makes it suitable for sensitive skin. it has a thin consistency that makes it fast-absorbing & easy to layer - much more than other vit c serums. it also gives me a nice glow & plumping effect.
🌱 botanical concentrated face serum - this oil-based serum is packed w/ root oils & plant extracts to target pores & dullness. unfortunately it solidifies (likely due to the coconut oil) which requires me to liquefy it daily by sitting in a small bowl of hot water. when usable, it's delightful & nourishing, but I just don't have the patience. I want to note that the brand's rep answered all my questions about the serum quickly & professionally. I'm not a fan of coconut oil in skincare so this likely would've been a neck oil for me anyway. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
*kindly gifted, but lying doesn't get ya into heaven
Sometimes I post belated makeup looks when I’m stuck in bed looking like a hungover troll (like today). Makes me feel better.
