My skin has been at its best, to be honest. Yes, there are some hormonal blemishes that pop up when I have my period but other than that my skin is smooth, clear, and glowing. I have these two products from Wander Beauty, along with my holy grails, to thank for that.
I have been using the Layover Hydrating Ampoule ($40) after applying my serums and the texture of this ampoule is something I fell in love with the first time I tried it. It uses hyaluronic acid, pentavitin, orchid flower extract, beta-glucan, and birch juice to hydrate and retain moisture to the skin.
It’s watery, light, and gentle as it sinks in quickly to the skin. I use it in the morning before makeup and at night before a moisturizer. If I’m not wearing a foundation, I feel like I could just slap this on any time of the day. I like how light and hydrating it is on my skin. Even if it feels so light on the skin, it offers hydration and leaves my skin feeling soft and smooth, without the tackiness other hyaluronic acid serums have.
Containing 1% retinoid, I tested the Do Not Disturb Overnight Repair Concentrate ($68) for over two months. Formulated together with squalane, peptides, dragon’s blood, azulene, and lavender oil to hydrate, soothe, improve elasticity, shield the skin from environmental aggressors, and diminish fine lines, wrinkles, uneven skin tone, and texture.
This moisturizer is thick and creamy but I was amazed as to how it grips the skin instead of the product sitting on top of it. It sinks in quickly given its consistency and texture. It stings a bit but I think the other ingredients help soothe my skin a few seconds after. As for the results, I have been using this two to three times a week and I like how it has helped with the texture and plumpness of my skin. The morning after applying this, my skin always looks bright and glowing. After two weeks of use, I notice that my skin looks healthier and after six weeks, I noticed how smooth my skin felt and how soft it felt. It has not completely diminished the few fine lines that I have but it did lessen some lines, especially the ones around my eyes. This is honestly fantastic and it’s one of my favorite Wander Beauty products so far.
