Sit down and get comfortable Supergreat, because you have a lot to learn from Relpixela. Some things you need to know about her first; she's from Pittsburgh, she's "basically a traffic wizard due to the confusing roads filled with terrible drivers," she's a cat mom of 5 (!!!), and she's a freelance graphic designer. Oh, and did we mention she's an amazing reviewer?
She's struggled with adult acne, and with a lot of patience and a ton of testing, she's finally figured out what works for her skin. More importantly, she's learned to accept her skin and all it's ups and downs. "Learning to live with adult acne is so difficult but when you see others just owning it, it makes it so much easier for it to become normal," she says. She's inspired by people like Samantha Ravndahl, a YouTuber who's open about her struggles with acne.
So let's get into her skincare, shall we? "I've been absolutely drowning myself in Drunk Elephant's Lala Retro Cream recently with the weather change," she says. "Pimple patches are also a daily thing for me. My favorite patches right now are from Peace Out—they're such a special treat for me since they're so expensive. The CosRX Acne Patches are also one of my faves. Sunday Riley UFO Oil has been in my life for almost a year! I'm on my second bottle and I'm obsessed. Scandal or not, it works. Same with the Sunday Riley Saturn Sulfur Mask." Acne? We don't know her.
Don't be fooled by her love of Sunday Riley—this SG OG also loves a good bargain. "As I learn more about skincare and what certain ingredients and actives are used for, I've been really into The Ordinary," she says. "Their non-marketing has been really intimidating but their ingredients are high quality and so affordable. Sometimes I feel irresponsible for recommending expensive products, to myself and others, so when there's a cheaper alternative, sign me up!"
