8 months into the year of 2022, and I am sharing with you my second skincare haul! This time around I made a purchase from Niche Beauty Lab, a Spanish-based beauty company that reminds me a lot of Deciem. I picked up 4 products and am sharing with you what they are and my reasons for buying them. I also feature a new Allies of Skin skincare product that I won in an Instagram giveaway 😀
Transparent Lab Soft PHA Peeling Cleanser
Recall my Spring Skincare Empties 2022 video when I talked about replacing the Paula’s Choice BHA Spray with a Geek & Gorgeous exfoliant? Well I changed my mind when I saw Niche Beauty’s Transparent Lab Soft PHA Peeling Cleanser. I’ve come to like using certain actives in cleanser form, BHA being one of them. I decided to pick up this cleanser for it has 5% PHA and 1% BHA – a low pH, gently exfoliating cleanser for both my face and body that’s easy to use.
THERAMID C-TETRA E.F.
I decided to pick up THERAMID C-TETRA E.F., a 20% vitamin C serum for my hubs who likes having this active in his super minimal skincare routine. I opted for a vitamin C derivative-based serum because it’s just gentler to use and less fussy than the traditional L-Ascorbic Acid serum.
My main reason behind a Niche Beauty haul, their new 15% Azelaic Acid serum, THERAMID AZID! My prescription 5% Dapsone is finished, so I decided to return to using AA in my skincare routine. In my experience, AA has brightening properties and it is a fairly gentle anti-acne active. I have already used THERAMID AZID a handful of times and I am very impressed so far.
THERAMID Advanced Eye Treatment
My eye area just hasn’t been the same since I emptied out the Hylamide SubQ Eyes. I’m currently using the COSRX Advanced Snail Peptide Eye Cream; I like how it softens the skin on my eye area, but it just doesn’t have the same effect. I decided to pick up THERAMID’s Advanced Eye Treatment with a concoction of different actives in hopes I get a similar effect to the discontinued Hylamide SubQ Eyes.
Allies of Skin Molecular Barrier Recovery Cream Balm (Gifted)
Remember in my 2nd Low Buy Update when I talked about temptations and that I participated in Instagram giveaways? Well it turns out after that video, I ended up winning Allies of Skin’s new Molecular Barrier Recovery Cream Balm 😀 I already started rotating it in and out of my skincare routine to compare to other products I tend to reach for, so I’ll be sure to review this pricey skincare product in the future.
And that’s all, folks! I’m still patiently waiting for my YesStyle haul to come in the mail with further skincare purchases I will justify to you all lol. In the meantime, please check out some other content related to this one:
