I have been dealing with acne and the resulting hyperpigmentation for as long as I can remember. Not only does treatment take patience and time, but also money. I’ve splurged on potent serums, chemical peels and treatments, prescription retinoids, and the works, hoping for a quick fix, but my skin would retaliate with more breakouts. I was doing too much.
I did not know this until I stumbled across the Mixed Makeup YouTube channel and got introduced to Susan Yara. She preached about how a daily skin-care routine has to be gentle and hydrating to be effective in the long run (and, of course, always wear sunscreen). Her skin-care line, Naturium, embodies that exact sentiment.
Naturium lets you build your own skin-care regimen and mix and match products according to your skin type and skin concerns, all at an affordable cost. Since I deal with hormonal breakouts and stubborn hyperpigmentation, I chose products that targeted those concerns.
Across the board, each of the products I used was gentle yet effective. My skin felt more hydrated and even-toned, and not once did my skin get flaky or irritated. Plus, my dark spots and hyperpigmentation lightened, and my hormonal breakouts were kept at bay. Keep reading to see my in-depth review of each product I used from Naturium — all $25 and under.
