So this morning, I'm shopping some products that you've recommended. I wanted to show you one that I'm going to be trying. This is the origins brand. This is the refreshing eye cream to brighten and de-puff. So as far as the product ingredients, you can see that it has ginseng, caffeine. And so that's where it gets its energizing marketing word. And then we come down here to ingredients and it doesn't have anything that really stands out. I mean, it has some dimethicone and the trimethicone, these are types of silicones that are just going to feel really good to the skin. At one of my friend's recommendations, I'm going to try this. It's waiting at Ulta for me to pick up.

I'm going to go back to show you that I also had a recommendation to try their tinted moisturizer. My aunt recommended it. She has some great skincare suggestion. So it has SPF 40, and it's tinted. I like how it shows you the texture. So it does look a little bit lighter, but I'm intrigued. So basically, I'm willing to try any tinted moisture either. We'll go down and look at the ingredients and see. 

So as far as the sunscreen part this is getting into the nitty gritty, but you're going to see these are types of sunscreen and they kind of can augment the main UVA UVB protection. So titanium dioxide, and zinc oxide. That's the sign of like a really good sunscreen and also why you're going to be paying a little bit more. These are considered mineral sunscreens when they have {only} this in it. The other ones like other products will have some avobenzone, oxybenzone. That's going to be more like your Neutrogena over the counter cheaper options, which is still great. 

So you can see this has dimethicone, it's going to have a really good texture. And that's the ingredient list is from the concentration of the most of the least. So most things are going to have mostly water. And then, I mean, I don't know what all of these mean, but I know the words to look for. So anyway, it looks great and I heard that it smells good, which is very important to me in the morning as you're getting ready for the day. So I'm going to be trying that. 

And then I wanted to show you one other thing, because this is a serum. I've had a lot of questions about this and I have looked into it and it really looks good. So this is the vitamin C serum by CeraVe. So here's why I'm going to try it. It has what I've always said: L-ascorbic acid. So it has an ascorbic acid as the second ingredient. It also has some dimethicone and it has sodium hyaluronate. So we would say it has hyaluronic acid in it, little derivative of it. It is a 10% vitamin C- you can see that. So 10% vitamin C, which we've talked about, that's where you can start; 15 to 20% is what I am using with oilier skin. It has the L-ascorbic acid and it has hyaluronic acid. So it looks like a great product and it's $25. I'm just going to feel the texture of it and then go from there and I'll let you know.
