Nighttime skincare routine

(That feeling when it’s so hot that you can’t wait to run home and wash your face)

I am so proud of my current nighttime skincare routine. All of the products I use are relatively affordable, do what they claim to do, and most of them contain no harmful ingredients. I do eventually want to transition into using only cruelty-free and natural skincare products, so feel free to leave me your recommendations.

Covering up acne spots + updates

Bare Minimum Coverage

Yesterday I decided to finally pick up a concealer to cover up the redness on my chin.
