At-Home Retinol Facial with Vivo Per Lei

At-Home Retinol Facial with Vivo Per Lei, Anti-Aging Skincare Tips, How to Use a Retinol Serum

This post has been sponsored by Vivo Per Lei.

I’ve had problematic skin for as long as I can remember. My preteen acne issues eventually became adult acne issues, and I even suffered from staph infections and MRSA as a teenager (as mentioned in this post). It wasn’t fun – believe me.

As a result of my aforementioned acne issues, my dermatologists have long recommended that I use retinol products. Retinol products boost collagen production and unclog pores… so they’re ideal for those who suffer from acne and want to incorporate more anti-aging products into their routine (aka: me).

Thus, when Vivo Per Lei reached out to me about trying out their retinol skincare line, I was eager to try the products. Over the past few weeks, I’ve been doing an at-home retinol facial two or three times each week and I have definitely seen a difference in my skin! Also this line is great because it’s actually affordable – each product is under $40!

My Favorite Korean Skincare Secrets + A HUGE Sale

Best Korean Skincare Products

About a month and a half ago, I went to Korea. It was my first-ever time in Asia. I loved the food. I loved getting to visit the headquarters of LG Display and Samsung and marvel at their technologically-advanced wonders. And then I discovered Korean skincare.

I’ve talked on the blog before about my naturally horrible skin. I have dealt with medication-worthy acne for years. For some reason, I get legit every skin infection under the sun (I was even hospitalized for one once – that’s where the scar between my eyes comes from). So, when I was in Korea, I bought a few Korean skincare products just to see if they lived up to the hype/could do anything to help my acne.

Y’all, my skin has never looked better. So I thought I’d share the best Korean skincare products I’ve discovered thus far with y’all, in the hopes my skincare regimen might help one or two of y’all out too! You can buy all of the products I’ve listed below on Amazon… so if you worry about where to buy Korean beauty products while not in Korea, I’ve got ya covered.

PS I’m sharing the dirty deets about a HUGE sale at the very bottom of this post!
