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.
Thankfully, on the day of my departure, I was able to reach a point of lucidity and put together a travel-friendly skincare routine that served me wonderfully over the course of the trip. Here are some tips to help you do the same, and hopefully save you some stress in the process!
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!
I started using the Laneige Lip Sleeping mask over a year ago, and I am thoroughly hooked on it. Recently I began to see the bottom of my jar, and I had the crazy idea to deviate from my well- established favorite and another brand’s lip sleeping mask.
I remembered seeing Lush’s shower jellies online in the past, so I set out on my mission. I got the Whoosh jelly, which has a scent comprised of 3 types of citrus. Short story short, I love it! Here are several reasons that I will undoubtedly keep returning to these jellies:
Triple C is a collaboration between Charlotte Cho, one of the co-founders of Soko Glam, and COSRX. When it was first introduced, the hype around it was so strong that it sold out within hours upon its release! It remains an extremely popular product, with good reason.
Perfect Glow comes with 7 ampoules that you use over the course of a week. According to the Babor website, this product is for people wanting to address dull skin.
The iUNIK Propolis Vitamin Synergy Serum is a solid product, and it calms my skin exactly as I hoped it would!
I found these serums on Amazon, as I hastily scrolled about trying to find replacements for my dwindling retinol and vitamin C. I liked that the Mad Hippie products had a fairly short ingredients list, and the pricing was about average for 30ml size bottles of product. Only one of these serums, however, has truly impressed me.
After using Farmacy’s Bright On, I discovered that clay masks don’t have to be drying!
