I bought the Beta-Glucan Power Moisture Serum just as the fall weather was beginning to arrive, and I intended to begin including it in my routine to help fight the onslaught of winter dryness. I’d often seen other iUNIK users say that this was their favorite serum out of the whole range, so I’d had my eye on this particular one for a while. Finally, the time had come to slap it on my own face! So how was it, do you ask? Allow me to share!
It took me quite a while to try Glossier’s Balm Dot Com lip balms. The main factor that kept me away from them for so long was that I was constantly seeing naysayers online declaring that you were better off just sticking with plain Vaseline. I wanted to test them for myself because I saw lots of other happy users singing their praises of the product, and they seemed entirely convinced of its effectiveness.
As summer humidity slinks away we are left with cold, dry winter air that sucks the moisture right out of our skin. I immediately notice a change in my skin’s appearance when the temps drop significantly. For me, it is always an unwelcome change that I dread every year. However, there are ways that we can fight the effects of this colder change in temperature! Switching out some of our lighter summer skincare products can help combat dry, irritated skin issues that happen in fall and winter.
Ah, hydrating toners! They are one of the most pleasurable stages of skincare, in my opinion. Essences, toners, watery serums- I’m happy to splash layers and layers of them on my face. Origins Mega-Mushroom Relief & Resilience Soothing Treatment Lotion (henceforth to be shortened to Mega Mushroom Lotion) is one such toner.
I like to layer hydrating products under my eyes, so this seemed like it would fit into my routine well. However, I was actually much more excited about the lip plumping/hydrating uses of this product than the eye plumping. My lips are chronically dehydrated, so having an extra dose of hydration in the mornings would be extremely helpful. I was intrigued to see how effective Bubblewrap was in its ability to hydrate both areas!
