๐ŸŒปI have recently started my Dermatica journey and I am so excited to share it with you! I am literally just a few weeks in, but as I've used the product before (I stopped when starting my supplement routine just to make sure I could see what was working) I feel like my skin has some type of memory as it has responded so quickly and so well, I am genuinely very excited to see how my skin will develop and improve ๐Ÿ™Œ

For those who are unfamiliar, Dermatica is a personalised prescription formula that allows you to target your skincare issues, with various formula options for things like acne, pigmentation, well-ageing or even just overall glow. My biggest battle is pigmentation as my spots leave horrendously bright scars that basically look like spots, so I was really keen to focus on addressing this. With that in mind, my formula is:

๐ŸŒป Tretinoin 0.1%
๐ŸŒป Hydroquinone 4%

These are both ingredients that I know my skin responds well too so I'm thrilled with the formula. I was surprised to start on such a high level of Tretinoin as I have seen others with smaller percentages, but I trust the team and I'm thrilled with the results so far.

I am peeling like I have never peeled in my life (and I've had plenty of actual salon-grade peels!) and there is a strange pleasure in seeing all of that old skin roll off to make way for the good stuff underneath! Interestingly, there's peeling, but no irritation or uncomfortable tightness, and I think this is largely to do with the changes I've made to my routine to accommodate the new actives - more on that very soon.

๐ŸŒท Happy Monday! How was your weekend? I have a gorgeous product to share with you today, particularly for anyone who loves a really good eye treatment.

The Klairs Fundamental Nourishing Eye Butter is every bit as lovely as it sounds, but don't be put off by the use of the word "butter" as this is more like a thick gel that doesn't leave a greasy film and it's light enough (and intended) for use all over the eye area, so a great pick for those of use who get dry eyelids.

I didn't find this worked especially well with eye makeup, but I am honestly at a loss as to finding an eye base that does sit nicely under concealer, so I think that might be a personal issue rather than a problem with the product. I use this pretty much every day, sometimes layered on top of an eye serum, and I really like it; it hydrates, softens, depuffs and leaves the whole area looking and feeling really soothed and nourished - I'm a fan, can you tell?!

It's $24 (around ยฃ20) and don't forget that code BEAUTYGEEK15 will get you 15% off - find this through the direct link in my bio ๐ŸŒท

๐Ÿ’™We've all heard of the iconic Sunday Riley Good Genes, so I was very excited to get my hands on it!

Annoyingly, my skin is still adjusting to retinol, so acids are a total no-go right now, but I just wanted to share a bit of love for Good Genes on my feed, then I'll follow-up with a review at a later date.

Have you tried Good Genes? Do you have a favourite Sunday Riley product? ๐Ÿ’™
