For the last month, I have been using the Jumiso All Day Vitamin Brightening & Balancing Facial Serum. The brand reached out and offered me the product — plus a nice selection of Jumiso swag — in exchange for my honest opinion. If you follow me on Instagram, then you’ve likely peeped my weekly check-ins via my Stories. But I’ve so much more to share! Head below for my full Jumiso All Day Vitamin Serum review.
Coming at you a little late, it’s a look at my favorite sheet masks from February!
Honestly, I didn’t mask very much last month. And when I did sheet mask, I tended to use the same brand/type for nights in a row, which isn’t a bad thing from a results perspective.
Alas, the following sheet masks stood out to me:
One of my skincare goals for 2019 is to incorporate more vitamin C into my routine.
Outside of the occasional sheet mask, I’ve shied away from this ingredient, despite reading so many testimonials on how effective it is at fading acne scars and brightening the complexion.
After much research, I decided on my very first regular vitamin C product: Ole Henriksen Truth Serum.
I felt the need to give a brief update on my Instagram hiatus, as several of you have reached out to me in the last week. (Thank you for that, it truly means a lot.)
Raise your hand if you have a giant stash of skincare samples.
I certainly do. I have a drawer that is full of fun-sized products. I don’t touch them unless I’m traveling, lacking a key step in my routine, or it’s an item I’m just dying to try.
The samples I’ll be reviewing here mostly fall into that third category of dying to try. Drunk Elephant and belif are brands I had seen praised all over the IG skincare community, but had not used myself. (As for Ole Henriksen, I’ve only used the Cold Plunge Pore Mask.)
Of course, I also made sure to time these trials well. I’m in need of a gel cleanser and currently seeking a new nighttime cream. That’s what samples are good for, right? They’re a chance to try a product before committing to a full-size version.
Read on to see if any of the four samples below have proven themselves worthy of becoming permanent staples in my routine.
I don’t believe in the concept of Holy Grail products.
