I have had the pleasure of testing out the @som@sommeinstitute with MDT5™️ Technology. The MDT5™️ stands for molecular dispersion technology, a revolutionary vitamin and protein delivery system based on @sommeinstitute ‘s 10 years of clinical trials tracking over 5,000 participants. The products contains vitamins A, B3, B5, C, and E. .
I have been testing out the following products for the past few weeks: . 🔵 Nourishing Cleanser: this was a great non-foaming, non-drying gentle cleanser. It cleansed my skin without irritation. . 🟣 Transport Pads: an exfoliant that was gentle enough to use every day. Not only was it gentle, but I did not have to rinse it off, which is a relief for a busy mom like myself. It did a great job of exfoliating the dead skin cells and did not irritate my skin when I applied the serum, mask, or moisturizer. I highly recommend this one. 👌🏼 . 🟠 Serum: This features 15% vitamin C to help improve skin tone and texture. It claims to boost collagen production and brighten skin discoloration. While I cannot attest to the boosting the collagen part since I cannot measure it, it did brighten my skin. I was not fond of the scent, but it did not bother me. It is gentle as well and there was no irritation when applying this over the Transport Pads. . 🟣 Boost Warming Mask: I was a bit worried about this one because of the “warming” aspect of it (read: irritation), but that was not the case at all! It contains mineral-rich Kaolin clay, a non-drying natural clay that helps absorb excess oil. I’ve only used this once, but it made my skin feel so smooth afterwards. I plan on using it again this week. . 🟢 A-Bomb Moisturizer: this is a lightweight moisturizer that is easily absorbed. I think it would be great for those with combination to oily skin types as I needed to add another layer of facial oil at night. I don’t know if this is because my skin has been somewhat dehydrated with having pneumonia this past week or what. I think it will be perfect for daytime or summer. .
Thoughts: - I have been using this every night and have seen visible results by the end of week one. *gifted

Women support women 👭 So Natalie (@roadtoglow ) of @deviantskincare developed this wonderful Cleansing Concentrate without EOs that is literally like butter. It leaves your face feeling clean without dehydrating you’re skin. This is my second jar that I am stocking up on to take with me on my move. I have had a bit of irritation from other cleansing balms with EOs, so I’m glad to be back to this one. I also opted to try the Gentle Resurfacing Liquid as well during the sale at the launch of this product. I can’t use it just yet as I got microneedling yesterday, but I hope to soon! Also, I’m not a strong exfoliant person and prefer steady, lower concentrations. #womensupportingwomen#womenempowerment#womeninbusiness
Posting this picture again because I just loved how the sun hit perfectly that day. ☀️ How is your Tuesday going? Also, stay tuned for some exciting giveaways! 😬💋
Today’s post is all about the @laprairie Skin Caviar line. I have been using the Essence of Skin Caviar Eye Complex eye gel for years now. This is actually my 3rd or 4th bottle and it has a serum-like consistency. I used to use it alone and now Iayer it under my Skin Caviar Luxe Eye Cream. It is lightweight and absorbs immediately. It targets stress and fatigue and is also a great makeup primer. I prefer to use both together now due to my undereye area being more on the drier side. I do find when I use both consistently that my undereye area is more moisturized and toned. I must note that I do not have undereye circles, but I do have fine lines in that area (I like to call them smile lines because I literally smile at everyone 😬). .
The Skin Caviar Essence-in-Lotion is a hydrating, pre-serum treatment that prepares the skin to absorb serums and creams. It contains 110% Caviar Water and call me spoiled, but I love caviar for my hair and skin. I find that it does the same job as SKII, but in my opinion the La Prairie is more hydrating. .
Skin Caviar Essence-in-Foundation Broad Spectrum SPF 25 is a hydrating, lightweight, compact foundation with light to medium coverage. It is a tad fragrances, but it seems to disappear quickly and doesn’t bother me at all. I had a difficult time finding my shade at first, but the shade Golden Beige W-30 seems to work for me. It comes with a protective pouch and a refill. .
One of the other products that I have tried is Cellular Power Charge Night - loved it! It was my first ever retinol product and I always woke up with smoother, clearer skin. I haven’t used it in over 3 years, so I don’t know if it will work the same now. I also tried a sample of their new Supreme Balm Cleanser which I was highly impressed with. I’m still hoping to someday try the Skin Caviar Foundation, but have never been able to get color-matched properly. .
One thing to note, these products contain fragrance so if you are sensitive to that, I suggest you get a sample first.
I know I’ve been a bit behind on posts, but packing up a whole house has been overwhelming! 🙃 Anyway, in continuing with my science and/or research-backed skincare series, today is all about the @seedtoskin_official brand. The products are created in their own lab in Borgo Santo Pietro in Italy 🇮🇹. Each formula has gone through continuous research and development using natural ingredients with advanced molecular science. To ensure utter transparency and integrity. Ingredients from their certified organic farm in Tuscany. The products do not contain any synthetic preservatives or fillers, artificial colors, artificial fragrances, parabens, or GMOs. The products come in the most exquisite green glass jars that can be recycled or reused. My favorite part? You can see the clinical results online. I love it when brands are transparent in that way. .
Products I’ve tried so far: .
I was kindly gifted these two items: The Golden Dew and The Dew Mist. .
The Golden Dew: A lightweight, hydrating mask with a gel-like texture. I love how it plumps up my skin and leaves my skin dewy. The hydro-gel mask contains hyaluronic acids of three different molecular weights, calendula extract to soothe the skin, Rosehip oil rich with essential fatty acids and antioxidants, and aloe gel and rose water for added moisture. I can not recommend this enough. .
The Dew Mist: an intensely hydrating fine mist which contains the same ingredients as The Dew Mask. It reminds me of the Tata Harper one, except I don’t cough with this one. 😅 But in all seriousness, the mist is so fine and the whole experience is spa-like. 🧖🏻♀️ The only downside is that I would like to see it in a bigger bottle. .
Do I recommend? Absolutely yes! Why? Well, my skin is dehydrated and sensitive and I had no reactions whatsoever with the products. The science and clinical research helps back up their claims and I have a preference for science and/or research backed products.

The perfect travel companion from @officialretrouve ✈️ I am so happy to have the new Voyage sizes of the Dynamic Nourishing Face Cream* and Intensive Replenishing Facial Moisturizer*. I already have the 15ml size of the Revitalizing Eye Concentrate that I take when traveling, especially with the air in the airplane being so drying and dehydrating. The ingredients in all of these products are 👌🏼 What else do I love about them? They have an excellent concierge service that is attentive to your skincare needs. ❤️ جداً احب هالماركة للبشره لانها فعاله للبشره الجافه والمختلطة، اصحاب الشركة هم نفس العائلة اللي اشتغلوا مع ماركة كيلز، ومكونات المنتجات طبيعية مثل فيتامين سي وإي ومستخلص الافوكادو والرمان، وأكثر شئ حبيته ان عندهم كونسيرج رائع ومعاملتهم رائعه مع الجميع
