Skincare TikTok Made Me Buy

You know I love skincare. Especially when I can find great, new products that are affordable and tried and true. Summer is quickly approaching and my skin has definitely suffered from the effects of wearing a mask for so long and the "mask-ne" is real

I must confess, I definitely have given into the TikTok trends. Specifically, finding the majority of my feed consisting of golden retrievers, TJ Maxx hauls, and yes, many many skincare and self care videos—welcome to Skincare-Tok! TikTok videos have been great for gaining authentic first-hand perspectives in short videos. I think the appeal to these is that many of these videos aren't highly produced or scripted like some YouTube tutorials or reviews are. So, here are some of the products that I've tried inspired by TikTok (and yes, they all live up to the hype)! 
CeraVe Moisturizing Night Cream- I have really been into my moisturizing routine lately, especially because my face gets a lot more dry when the sun comes out. This is the best light-weight night cream for sensitive skin. 

Mighty Patch by Hero Cosmetics- The savior of all pimples, literally couldn't live without these Mighty Patches. We love to wake up to a big, red, juicy spot on our faces don't we? Yeah, no. I'll put like three of these on at a time and I swear by morning my pimples are gone. Zip. 

Sun Bum Mineral Sunscreen- Sunscreen is going to be my best friend this summer. I've ignored using it on the daily for so long, and realize how crucial it is to be using even when it's partly sunny out. No wrinkles, dark spots, or uneven skin for me! This is a mineral sunscreen which is a natural and more concentrated sunscreen with zinc oxide and titanium oxide. It's also great for sensitive and acne prone skin so I am curious to see how it reacts, even under light makeup. 

Dr. Jart+ Ceramidin Facial Barrier Face Mask- Don't walk, run! I found these at TJ Maxx, as a matter of fact. They are incredibly moisturizing and restore dry and dull skin for that JLo Glo! I love using these once or twice a month just to rejuvenate my skin and even out the texture. 
The Ordinary Hyaluronic Acid- I am hooked on serums! I never really understood their purpose, until I started using ones that actually made an impact on my skin. This is a more viscose and moisturizing serum that hydrates and boosts your complexion. I love to use it along with the CeraVe moisturizer at night. 

The Ordinary Lactic Acid- I'll be candid—the texture of my skin has been a result of years and years of acne, dryness, and scarring. So, when I learned more about what Lactic Acid does, it basically acts as a chemical peel that reveals smoother and brighter looking skin. It also helps with fine lines and wrinkles, which I will definitely be needing in the near future.  
If you've been following the TikTok trends (or if you haven't), I'd be curious to know what product you've been using lately! I also began using a jade roller and have gotten all fancy with my nighttime skincare. I'd also be interested in trying the acne preventing face masks that you can wear with your normal non-medical face masks. Let me know your faves in the comments!
