@Titian06 @siawly Quick clarification: you don't have to alternate vitamin C and retinol like that. These 2 ingredients don't contradict each other. In fact, there are some products on the market formulated with both ingredients. 🙂 The only reason to alternate them is your particular skin's tolerance: some folks' skin can't handle this combo. Not saying you can't or shouldn't alternate them; just sayin' there's nothing wrong with layering them together, as long as your skin tolerates it. If you're brand new to retinol and you've got 2 separate products (1 retinol, 1 vitamin C), I recommend not introducing both to your skin at the same time. I say that about pretty much any active ingredient, not just these 2: introduce them one at a time so to reduce the chance of your skin flipping out over something it's not used to. Pick one and use it for a few weeks. If you have no irritation, then introduce the other product. Many people do alternate the time of day they use vitamin C and retinol, mostly because you'll get more antioxidant bang for your buck from vitamin C if you use it in the morning. You can use it at night instead; nothing wrong with that. You can also use retinol in the morning if you want, though most of us use vitamin A at night. Retinol doesn't really make your skin more sensitive to the sun, at least not the same way AHA exfoliants do. Retinol speeds up the skin cell turnover cycle, meaning new skin cells are created faster than usual. Dead skin cells still need to be cleared from the surface from time to time—retinol doesn't do that—but some dermatologists say the simple act of washing your face = exfoliation. AHAs get sun sensitivity warnings per the FDA because they remove dead skin cells, exposing new skin underneath. Of course, we should all use sunscreen daily no matter what else we use on our skin.

@Ranu19 I'm sorry that you didn't receive your samples that you wanted because it's always disappointing. However, Sephora does give the disclaimer that you might not get your samples based on availability so unfortunately it does happen.

Fenty Skin Fat Water Niacinamide Pore-Refining Toner Serum with Barbados Cherry My fav! I will not be trying the new fat water toner as it is more for dry/dehydrated skin and this one is more for oily/acne-prone skin. 💖💜 LYS Beauty Triple Fix Brightening Concealer I will be buying another one in a shade more appropriate to my skin now that it's no longer in the "winter" color phase. Love how easy it is to apply to get full-coverage (not the actual packaging), lightweight it is, and the skin-like finish with a subtle glow (like a low-key radiant). 🌟😍

@CynthieLu I've only tried a couple of things from Tula but I've really liked what I've tried so far! I'm half toying with the idea of picking up one of their little discovery kits at some point just to see if I find other products that I like. That's a great set that you got!

@itsfi @eshoe sometimes you just need a good little pamper sesh to relax and unwind so ending my day like that was very soothing. It was just one of those days but those happen and there's always a new day with an opportunity to be a better one :).
