The Ordinary Matrixyl 10% + HA
Purge No. 7
I bought several The Ordinary products without giving much thought to how they would fit into a sustainable skin care routine.
Of everything I bought, I’ve mostly just been using Advanced Retinoid, Salicylic Acid, Ascorbyl Tetraisopalmitate, and the AHA + BHA peel.
Everything else just started stressing me out because I don’t know where and how to fit them in. I wish I have something valuable to say about Matrixil 10% + HA. It has a watery gel texture and it claims to help with wrinkles. I didn’t use it enough times to notice a difference.
Happy Skin and Pixi Face Brushes
Purge 8, 9, & 10
(Top to bottom: Happy Skin Powder Brush, Happy Skin Blush Brush, Pixi Foundation Brush)
For the kind of makeup look I go for every day (yung nag-makeup-ka-pa-di-naman-halata makeup look), I have so many makeup brushes. I’ll slowly let go of more.
These 3 are good brushes. I’m just not using them as much as the other ones I own. The Happy Skin Brushes do the job well. They’re soft and pretty to look at. The Pixi Foundation Brush is ok, too, but the head is too small for my preference. The brush doesn’t have a lot of yield because its bristles are short and VERY tightly packed. It could be a good substitute for fingers, but I already Shiseido Perfect Foundation Brush for that.
Morphe E52 Brush
Purge no. 11
Another good quality brush. I love how it’s tapered and huuuuge! I haven’t been using it as much because I use it to set my foundation, and I don’t often do the latter.
