How to do an at home mini chemical Peel with NIP+FAB

I've wanted to get a chemical peel for a while now. I just felt like my skin had some rough texture that I couldn't get rid of with a normal facial scrub. In comes NIP+FAB Glycolic Fix night pads extreme
Now these pads are meant to be used 1 to 3 times a week. They contain 5% glycolic acid and a blend of AHA's and BHA's which helps to decongest dull skin to make the pores appear more refined and the complexion brighter. 

For a while I was using these the recommended way, about 3 times a week, but didn't really see the results I was hoping for, which was a smoother texture. Then my idea of peel came in... I thought I would use them EVERY night for a week or 2 and see if I noticed anything. Let me tell you, after about 7 days my skin was soooo much smoother! This one fine line on my forehead was hardly noticeable and my skin became brighter and the redness around my nose lessened. Finally, the results I was hoping for.
If you're thinking about getting a chemical peel, or just feel like your skin is looking dull, I would give this a try. Now if you have sensitive skin, this may not be a good option for you, but if you feel like your skin can handle acids pretty well, then it's a great low cost option to try before going to the dermatologist. I'm so happy with the results. After about a week to 2 weeks of nightly use I went down to 3 times a week for maintenance. Just make sure you follow up with a good moisturizer or it WILL dry your skin out. I actually have dry skin, but this process didn't dry me out any further. I just used my usual Neutrogena eye cream and Biosance Squalane facial oil afterwards. 

Have anyone tried these? What are your thoughts?

Squalane Oil by Biossance - review

A couple months ago I ordered a sample of Biossance Squalane Oil and Squalane + vit c rose oil from an ad on Facebook. I reviewed the vit c rose oil here and I've been using the squalane oil for about 3 weeks now. 

What it is according to Sephora:
A weightless multi purpose oil that can be used from head to toe to hydrate and lock in essential moisture.

I've only been using this on my face, mostly at night and sometimes in the morning when my skin has been feeling extra dry. Since, the summer is here, I don't feel like I need as much moisture as I do in the winter. Anyway, on with the review; I actually like this oil more than the vit c rose oil, the consistency is lighter and seems to spread a little easier.  Just like their vit c rose oil, you only need 2 to 3 drops for the whole face and I like to pat this in after i lightly mist my face with the Mario Badescu Rose water. I soaks in well and seems to calm redness around my t zone.

This oil can be used head to toe and since squalane oil is something that the body produces it's own version of, it can even be used on sensitive skin types. Another thing I really like is that unlike most oils, you get a lot of bang for your buck with this product, 3.3 oz for $58 at sephora. If your someone that has dry skin, i would definitely recommend it. It's kind of like a one and done product for all over moisturizing.

Biossance Squalane + vit c rose oil - Worth the hype?

You might have seen the advertising on Facebook and Instagram where you can get 2 free samples from Biossance and only pay $4 for shipping. If you've never tried a facial oil before, you might be pleasantly surprised by this one. The 2 samples are for their squalane oil and squalane vit c + rose oil. I've been using their vit c rose oil for almost 3 weeks now and I use it morning and night.


It claims to: Brighten, Firm & Even Skin Tone & Texture.  I can say that all these claims are true, at least for me! I usually have redness around my nose and chin and I've noticed a huge improvement in my skin tone, it's much more even and sometimes I don't even feel the need to wear makeup. I would say it brightened up my face a bit too, now that my skin isn't as red it does look a little brighter. Texture has been much smoother as well, I can't stop touching my face! As for firming, I didn't have a problem with my skin not being firm, but I have noticed since using this that my smile lines aren't as apparent, so I'm thinking this oil helped firm up my cheeks a bit. It also hasn't broke me out or clogged my pores, in fact, my pores even look smaller! I don't know what kind of sorcery this is, but I'll take it lol! I think this would would well for even sensitive and acne prone skin types. 

Unlike most facial oils that feel like they sit on top of the skin, this one is surprisingly different. It feels like it actually absorbs into the skin. Even my mom who hates facial oils tried this one and really enjoyed it. I haven't tried their 100% squalane oil yet, but when I do I'll be back to review that one. If you haven't tried Biossance products yet, order their samples here, this is a great way to try two products for only $4! If you've tried their oils, I would love to know that you think in the comments below.
