Isntree Hyaluronic Acid Toner Review


Hi Everyone!

It has been a while since my last review about skincare products. I started to use this product several months ago How I have used the essence of this same brand I wanted to try this toner because I read good reviews about this product too. The acid hyaluronic is one of my favorite ingredients now because it provides a good quantity of moisture to my skin, and my skin looks healthy and pretty. 

This is not a sponsored review I buy this product with my own money. I just share my review for informative purposes only.  The toner in my life has not been so important respecting the skincare but I guess that is because I have not found the right toner for my skincare before. In the past, I was always looking for toners with good control of sebum or acné but not with the focus of moisturizing my skin. But now I have sensitive combination skin I feel How my skin needs more moisturizing and If I don't have enough moisture my skin is gonna look dull and dry and I don´t want that.

Features

A moisture-bomb toner contains 3 different types of hyaluronic acid that fills up your dry and tired skin with moisture.
Light texture toner which is absorbed into the skin quickly.
Supplies fresh moisture to dried skin and maintains skin to be moist for a long time.


What is hyaluronic acid?

Chemistry and physicochemical properties. HA is a non-sul-phated GAG and is composed of repeating polymeric disaccharides of D-glucuronic acid and N-acetyl-D-glucosamine linked by a glucuronidic β (1→3) bond.1

In humans, HA is most abundant in the skin, accounting for 50% of the total body HA, the vitreous of the eye, the umbilical cord, and synovial fluid, but it is also present in all tissues and fluids of the body, such as skeletal tissues, heart valves, the lung, the aorta, the prostate, tunica albuginea, corpora cavernosa and corpus spongiosum of the penis.1

The biological function of HA. Over the past two decades there was considerable evidence presented that unraveled the functional role of HA in molecular mechanisms and indicated the potential role of HA for the development of novel therapeutic strategies for many diseases. Functions of HA include the following: hydration, lubrication of joints, a space filling capacity, and the framework through which cells migrate. The synthesis of HA increases during tissue injury and wound healing and HA regulates several aspects of tissue repair, including activation of inflammatory cells to enhance immune response.1

Conclusions

I started to share little about the chemical aspect of Hyaluronic Acid but the reason behind was this is naturally produced by our own organism. Obviously when I talk about the ingredient in this toner like in almost all the skincare products is synthetic. It is important to know that in our skin this is the key to main the hydration in our skin. And due that is that the skin looks healthy and refreshed after applying a product with this ingredient. The benefits of this ingredient are that heps to the skin heal faster, helps to maintain in good condition our skin barrier and that occurs because this helps to store the hydration. 

This toner contains good ingredients like Glycerin and Panthenol that are amazing providing moisturizing to the skin too. So this toner is a great option If you are looking moisture for your skin. Now I want to share my personal experience with this toner. 

I started to use this product for around five months ago my first impression was this is so lightweight is like a liquid jelly toner. Has that jelly feeling but is not so dense and when is applied feels so lightweight and I love that type of texture so I can feel comfortable applying the other products of my routine. The absorption is quick so I don´t lose anything of time and in just two minutes I can start to apply my essence or serum depending on the day.

This toner has a content of 200 mL but you can find a version of 400 mL my only issue with this is that using regularly every day is hard for to me use the 200 mL in less than 6 months because this product expires after opened in 6 months which is sad.

For my sensitive combination skin, this product is perfect because it provides me enough quantity of moisture that I am looking for but doesn´t feel heavy on my skin. By the way, If I want more moisture I apply another layer but like I am going to apply a moisturizing cream (light but moisturizing in the end) in my routine this step is not necessary. This is the perfect toner If you have normal, oily, or combination sensitive skin like mine. Talking about sensitivity this toner is perfect for those days when my skin is more sensitive than usual like I am in my premenstrual time. My advice is not to apply this toner like the only source of moisturizing you need something to seal this moisturizing effect.

On another side I apply this toner with my clean, washed bare hands for me is a waste using cotton just a few drops are enough for my skin face and my neck. I need to repurchase this product again. Now there is a version plus and I want to try that one and of course I hope to share my review with you. After several months using it I can say that my skin feels and looks more hydrated, smoother, and brighter.

Alicia en el País de las Maravillas by Lewis Carroll



“I can’t explain myself, I’m afraid, sir,’ said Alice, ‘because I’m not myself, you see.”
― Lewis Carroll, Alice's Adventures In Wonderland

Hi Everyone!

I am here with a new book review I´ve spent so many days without Wi-Fi so that has been the principal reason why I've not published for several days. But I am here with a review of one of my favorite books. This time is the turn of Alice's Adventures In Wonderland by Lewis Carroll. As some of you probably already know I am a huge fan of Fantasy is my favorite literary genre so I enjoy this book so much. 

The first thing I need to say is that I have read several times before, but this is the first time I read my own paperback. This was a gift of my friend Natasha (momo) and she gave me this wonderful Spanish edition as a gift and I feel so happy because this gift was so amazing. Recently I read this book and I needed to share with you my feelings about this amazing book.ヽ(o^▽^o)ノ

About this book

Alice's Adventures in Wonderland is a work of children's literature by the English mathematician and author, the Reverend Charles Lutwidge Dodgson, written under the pseudonym, Lewis Carroll. It tells the story of a girl named Alice who falls down a rabbit-hole into a fantasy realm populated by grotesque figures like talking playing cards and anthropomorphic creatures. The Wonderland described in the tale plays with logic in ways that have made the story of lasting popularity with adults as well as children. It is considered to be one of the most characteristic examples of the genre of literary nonsense.


REVIEW 

I read this book recently and like a huge fan of Fantasy It feels so amazing to read this book because is like fresh air on my face. Probably many of you already know about this story because is very popular but goes when a little girl called Alice falls asleep and after that, she wakes up and starts to follow a little white bunny and she falls out in a very long hole where she spends hours and hours falling until finally, she wakes up in a world of complete fantasy where there are many interesting characters.

This is a book with amazing quotes and Incredibles metaphors. And even you can find a character that is a little obsessed with metaphors but in fact, this book is about metaphors. This book is how you can feel yourself in this crazy world and how we are completely changing one time per time. We can believe that we are adults and that we are all grown up but in fact, in certain situations, we can feel again like little kids running without any idea about what to do next and that despair is something real.

“How puzzling all these changes are! I'm never sure what I'm going to be, from one minute to another.”

If you read this book comprehending that the journey that has Alice is all a metaphor about real-life everything changes completely and you can enjoy the book better. This book has a lot of nonsense but life is a bit nonsense most of the time. And talking about the time I want to share another great quote.

“If you knew Time as well as I do,’ said the Hatter, ‘you wouldn’t talk about wasting it. It’s him.”

And like these you cand fin many other amazing quotes with a little strange story. The fantasy in this book is really good because you start to imagine a group of cards being King and Queen. But for me, the most important part is that this book gives you life lessons and I think that everyone who loves books and fantasy should read it.


“Would you tell me, please, which way I ought to go from here?’ ‘That depends a good deal on where you want to get to,’ said the Cat. ‘I don’t much care where —’ said Alice. ‘Then it doesn’t matter which way you go,’ said the Cat.”

Recently I placed a purchase online but on a local website of skincare so I hope soon back to my online purchases so I´ve been checking a lot of clothes and of course I have now a good wishlist with products that I am interested in to try soon. So I found this website Kis with a good variety of mini dresses and very elegant dresses too. This lovely hot pink dress is perfect for a picnic at home because now everything must be at home.

COSRX Blackhead Remover Mr.RX Kit


Hi Everyone!


A new month a new review. I am happy to have the opportunity to share with you my review of this good product by one of my favorite Korean brands as COSRX. If you read my post COSRX Gift Set Soft Skin Wear can understand for how long I have this product. I am a fan of nose strips and all the products related to blackheads because I suffer from blackheads since puberty and now that I am an adult I have to deal with blackheads too. I always recommend use this kind of product only twice per month like much because in that way the pores and the skin doesn´t suffer because this kind of product are like a mechanical exfoliation and for my combination sensitive skin that is not good. But leaving aside that I guess in any case is good to use over twice per month. 

This product claims not only to remove blackheads cleaning the dirty pores but calm and tighten the pores too which is great. This has three steps with a determined amount of time each one. And all the treatment is around 20-25 minutes. By the way, this post is gonna contain close-up photos of my unpretty nose with dirty pores so you are warned now ( ̄▽ ̄)

Before and After COSRX Blackhead Remover Mr.RX Kit ( 〃▽〃)

Conclusions

I have used many products like nose strips and treatments before for my blackheads because like I commented before I am not dealing with blackheads since today that is something pretty long in my life and this product is different because it really works since the first step which I guess is the most useful. I applied the Softening Sheet and the sensation is like a strong serum when I removed the softening sheet my nose and the area around It was noticeable light than before. I removed the waste of my dirty pores with a blackhead remover tool (I did not show that part because is really disgusting) and I cleared my nose with a soft fabric. But after applying the first step is so easy to remove the wastes of my pores.

The second step doesn´t show any difference really and not removes nothing because this contains extracts that make the pores look tighten and small but in my case this removes nothing. After step 1 and step 2 the nose area is sensitive and with redness and step 3 really reduces the redness and calms the skin in that area. 

This COSRX Blackhead Remover Mr.RX Kit is an effective treatment for reducing the blackheads and I really recommend this kit If you have oily or combination skin and If you have an effective product this is a very good one. The price is around $6 USD but for me, this is a good investment. I want to say that I reinforce my treatment of blackheads using my double cleansing every day and using a BHA essence.

Any product is magical but we can find effective products and this is a very effective one. I want to repurchase this item because is a good investment and is great for my skincare routine. Obviously, I feel very happy with my clean pores and my clean nose.

RATING

★★★★★

Well,。・゚(゚><゚)゚・。 this was a pretty long post because this was a kit and obviously I wanted to show the effectivity. (ノωヽ)I am sorry for so many photos of my nose.
