Beauty is Skin Deep-PRODUCT REVIEW

Who doesn't want beautiful skin?As someone who has struggled with acne and hyperpigmentation for years, I've tried several products-Cetaphil, Noxzema, Clinique- you name it. A part of it was me not being disciplined enough to use the products religiously. So as a result, I have struggled with getting a tried and true routine. Enter Good Molecules. which is a science-backed skincare brand based in San Francisco and Nashville.

Products backed by science, safe for the planet and affordable? Please sign me up. So let's get into the products:
1. Niacinamide Brightening Toner
What I like about Good Molecules, is they give the steps on the box the products come in. I use this toner morning and night right after my face wash. In the beginning, because I didn't know how my skin would react, I only used it once (in the am). You don't need a lot of product---just dab a few drops on a cotton roll and spread.
*It was also recommended not to use the products with anything containing Salicylic Acid.
2. Discoloration Correcting Serum
This comes with a dropper tool that makes application easy. After I apply my toner I will add the serum. I think this has really helped with my hyperpigmentation and brightening up my skin. 
3. Silicone-Free Moisturizer
Light weight moisturizer----there's a bunch packed in this container. At first I was not a fan as I felt it made my face too greasy, but sticking to my routine this product grew on me.
4. Overnight Exfoliating Treatment
Last but certainly not least- is the overnight exfoliating treatment. I will say I use this one sparingly but try to do at least once a week. When I do use this, I will do the exfoliating treatment first then toner and serum. I'll let the exfoliating treatment sit for like 5-10 min just so it can soak in. Not sure if this matters or if it's the right way to do it but just how I've adopted to doing it.
Why I like Good Molecules?
First and foremost--they are affordable! I was using Clinique for about a year and while I loved their face wash (it prevented new breakouts) It was about $22-25 along with their acne spot treatment which was another $20. Everything within budget is what also makes this brand very appealing. 
Where can I buy Good Molecules?
They have a plethora of products to choose from online and Ulta.
Other GM products to try:
Some other products I'm interested in trying are the Caffiene Energizing Hydrogel Eye Patches, Acne Cleansing Foamer and the Daily Brightening Serum.
