Hello my friends!

Over the past few years I’ve been really into skincare. I’m all about improving your natural skin so that makeup is just an afterthought. I’ve dabbled into a few different brands like Tula, Mario Badescu, Origins, and No.7. It’s been hard for me to find serums and moisturizers that don’t clog my skin, cause breakouts or irritation. It’s also a balance to try and find skincare that’s for my age – you know, more preventative than the intense stuff for when you’re older. I came across Cyantific, a skincare brand that leverages blue-green algae (a powerhouse at blocking UV rays) and fell in love with it after one or two weeks of use. Now I know what you’re thinking – ugh, how much is it. Well, you can get the serum, day and night moisturizers for $100 and they will easily last you two months, maybe more. So, $50/mo for a daily skincare regimen? Yes please! Also, you can use code VANESSARENAE to get 30% off your purchase.

Cyantific skincare



This is the best serum I’ve used. It’s light, doesn’t clog my pores or cause breakouts. I’ve noticed a definite change with how bright and even my skin tone and texture has gotten over the past 5 weeks.


This daily lotion is my second favorite item of the set. It’s also light and doesn’t clog my pores. I may need to add an extra layer of moisture once the weather gets colder. During the winter, I typically like to use a dab of almond oil on my face before applying everything else. The daily moisturizer also has SPF which is a MUST for age prevention.


The night cream was definitely different from what I’ve previously used. My skin had a super mild tingly feeling when I put it on at night after the shower. Don’t be worried, even if your skin has that tingly reaction, there will be no visible reaction [like redness] and the tingling goes away after a minute or two [at least for me].

Overall, I think I’ve finally found my go-to serum and moisturizers. There’s something about combining from the same brand/line that I think makes it way more effective. I’m excited I found a brand/line where Each item works for me, not just one of them. If a few months go by and I don’t notice a difference in the fine lines on my forehead, I might add another type of night cream or serum to the mix – but other than that, I am a happy lady!

What’s your go-to skin routine? If you haven’t been able to find one yet, this brand may just be for you! You can use code VANESSARENAE to get 30% off your entire purchase!

  1. Thanks for sharing! To answer your question, I have been really into Lilyana naturals from Amazon. I need to re-purchase, but I had their retinol cream (out of it) and I also use their eye cream. I am thinking of adding their daily moisturizer to my routine as well. My mom in law loves it too.
    What changes have you felt in your skin using this line?

    1. I’ve noticed a softer moisturized texture and minimized pores. The best part is it doesn’t give me white heads and an oily feeling like a lot of the other brands I’ve used. My skin also looks brighter! My smile lines are a little less visible forehead lines not as much so I might add on to it to help those out a little more (like another serum or face masks)
