Skincare Product Reviews To Expect from Your Good Sis in October

Here’s a little preview of the skincare product reviews coming your way in the next few weeks. These three skincare brands gifted me with products earlier this month and I can’t wait to review them for you all!

As someone who has struggled with their skin for most of their life, from acne to hyperpigmentation, finding a skincare product to manage these issues feels daunting.

Luckily, I’ve been able to find some holy grail skincare products. Ex) A few of the KBeauty products I tried during the summer and the Azelaic Acid serum from The Ordinary. Here’s hoping that I find more skincare faves from the brands below.

Skincare Product Reviews Coming This Month:


skincare product review on my topicals

Topicals launched in August and it is the brainchild of two 23 year old entrepreneurs, Olamide and Claudia. They currently offer two products: Faded and Like Butter. Faded is a gel like serum that helps fade acne spots, dark marks, and scars. So far I’m loving the serum and I can’t wait to see the results as I keep using it. Like Butter is a hydrating mask that is especially perfect for dry and eczema prone skin. Even though I have combination skin, this product is quickly becoming one of my favorites for sure.

In addition to creating two amazing products, they also donate 1% of their profits to mental health organizations and they are working to destigmatize imperfect skin in the beauty industry. This is such an amazing company and I hope my experience with these products continues to go well because I would love to keep supporting and promoting them and their message in the future.


Skincare product review on zitsticka

Zitsticka gifted me Hyperfade and the Killa Kit. Hyperfade essentially fades dark spots and hyperpigmentation while the Killa Kit supposedly nips zits in the bud. The company uses microdart technology to deliver a potent dose of ingredients formulated to target your skincare concerns. I’ve never used a product like this before so it’ll definitely be interesting, especially since the Killa Kit targets new, underground zits as opposed to whiteheads like most pimple patches.


skincare product review on skintanics

Another brand started by a young Black woman, Skintanics is a clean beauty brand that delivers sustainably made and plant powered clinical skincare. Their ingredients specifically target skincare concerns like eczema, acne and hyperpigmentation. They gifted me with the Beet Root Mask (pictured above), the Niacinamide Serum, and their Tea Tree Toner. Since I currently buy my Niacinamide serum from The Ordinary, it’ll be interesting to see which serum will come out on top.

My main focus since getting my skin under control has been dealing with hyperpigmentation and post inflammatory erythema. Hopefully I’ll see some progress using these products but either way, I’ll keep you all posted for sure. Stay tuned!
