The Skincare Line Up: March 3rd, 2023

Welcome back once again to the weekly skincare line up. Here I get to look at all of the products that I am using and how they are working as well as working with the other items in the line up. I am winding up a couple of items and starting a few new. At the moment I am also trying to work through accumulated samples so i can clear out some space. I tend to go in waves with samples. I love trying them out and seeing what products I want to try out in a full size. And then I will switch and try out items in the full size and let the samples pile up. Then when i think I have enough sample sizes to fit every category of skin care I will decide that it might be time to clear them out again. The ones I like will then go on a list for full sized purchase and later testing. It is a strange cycle but it works for me. At the moment I am in a mostly sample size testing phase. Mostly because i really havint gone through skincare samples in a while and really needed to. So, tat’s where we are.

Although saying that, i am starting with two full sized products. the makeup removers.

Beekman 1802 Buttermilk Makeuep Melt

Bioderma Purifying Cleansing Micelle Solution

As you can see there are two I am using the Micellar water to take off eye makeup, mostly because the Beekman doesn’t do the greatest with mascara. And the bottle was open and I felt I needed to use it up. In general I like the Beekman 1802 cleansing balm. It works well and is gentle on the rest of my skin. It just isn’t the greatest at removing mascara and so it needed a companion. I also use my Makeup eraser with the products so I can get as much of the makeup off. This is the last week for the Beekman though. The last little bit in the container will be taking off today’s makeup and then it will go to the empties bin. It was nice, and I wouldn’t mind using it again, but i can’t say it was my absolute favorite.

The Day time Line up

Cleanser: Glow Recipe Blueberry Bounce Gentle Cleanser


Eyecream: Byroe Truffle Eye Cream

Moisturizer: Beauty Stat Universal Pro Bio Moisture Boost Cream

This week I forgot to roll in a new serum when the Babor was finished. I just kept forgetting. I would make a note of it being missing in the morning, but then the day would get busy and i would forget until the next morning. And so I never rolled anything in and went sans serum this week. I will be pulling a serum out as soon as I finish posting this to rectify the situation,. I just forgot so it was a very simple routine this week.

The Glow Recipe is nice. I still think the exit hole for the product is a bit small making it difficult to use. I am willing to say that that could be the fault of the sample size though as it looks like a bigger pump in the full size. The cleanser has a faux blueberry scent which is nice. In general that is my word for this cleanser. Nice. Not fabulous, not horrible. It is just middle of the road nice.

I liked the Byroe Truffle Eye cream a little more this week. I think part of that is because I have some distance from the Tea Time Eye Gel from Byroe. That eye cream i loved. This one I like. I enjoy using it, but to me it isn’t as good as the other one. with some distance I can see it for itself instead of comparing it. I like it more this week than I liked it last week, but I am going to wait a bit longer before I pass judgement. it isn’t instant love as it was with Tea Time, but i like it enough to keep using it and to give it a chance.

and then we have Beauty Stat. I love this cream. Flat out love this cream. It has an odd texture that makes me think Vaseline when I touch it with my fingertips even though it is a white cream. i am not entirely sure why. it doesn’t apply like Vaseline, it is a moisturizer that melts right into the skin and is a beautiful non-greasy formula. Yet something in the texture has my fingertips thinking Vaseline. This is my first Beauty Stat product and I am so going to have to look more into the brand. Even though this is a sample, so little product is needed that it has lasted. This week I used it as both day and night cream because I wanted to see how it performed at night and if i would need more when i used it at night. I didn’t. I used the same small amount at night that I did during the day. As a result I still have a little bit of product left. Now that I know how it works at night I am going to switch back to using this just in the day and roll in a different cream at night. I think I might actually make it through the week with the last of this cream if I do that. This is definitely on my repurchase list.

The Night time Line up

Cleanser: Glow Recipe Blueberry Bounce Gentle Cleanser

Toner: Perricone MD Face Finishing and Firming Toner

Serum: Replenix Age Restore Night Time Therapy

Moisturizer: Beauty Stat Universal Pro Bio Moisture Boost Cream

Lips mask: Tatcha Kissu Lip mask

I used the same cleanser and moisturizer as I did in the day and they performed the same at night a they did in the day so i won’t repeat my thoughts here. The Pericone toner is doing well. It is a gentle exfoliating toner. I have noticed that the longer I use this toner the cleaner my toner pads are. I think that it is just taking off the dead skin cells and other junk as it arrives each day so here is no build up. I think the initial dirty toner pads were because of whatever was built up. Now the build up is gone and it is just a daily gentle exfoliation. this actually makes me happy as it means I am not over exfoliating while continuing to use this product. For me that is a relief. I am growing rather fond of this exfoliator.

I am in love with this Replenix night serum. it is light weight and my skin drinks it in. I like to wait a moment or two before applying moisturizer over it, but my skin feels just soft and fabulous after it. This is another brand that is new to me and I am very much going to have to look into more products from the, I have a second sample of one of their products in my sample basket. It isn’t the same product but I think it is for night time use as well. I will probably try to dig that out and roll it into use soon just to look into the brand more. For a first product to use for the brand this is a really good one.

And of course I used my Tatcha this week. I am happy to say my lips are feeling much better. They were dry and when they are dry I pick at them and cause more problems. I know I shouldn’t but it is something i do when not paying attention. So the best thing for me is to make sure they never dry out. The Tatcha lip mask has really helped heal the damage more quickly than I thought it would. I have been using this lip mask for a while now and even though it looks the same from the outside there is now a deep divot in the product. I will still be able to use it for a while, but it is now noticeable that the lip mask has been used It is something that I will replace as soon as it starts to look empty. For a night time lip treat is it one of the best products i have tried.

And that my darlings is the skincare for this week. I will be rolling in a few new items to start the week and I will be finishing up several of these samples this week as well. And to be fair I think that any of the samples that manage to last this week will need to be replaced at the end of the week. It isn’t long enough to see massive effects from the products but I have certainly found a few items i am interested in trying out in the full size and in addition there are two brands, Replenix and Beauty Stat that I want to investigate further as well. And as finding new products and brands is why I use samples in the first place, that is a very good thing.
