Alleyoop (formerly Sphynx) makes super affordable products with cute packaging! The alleyoop - All-In-One Portable Razor is $15 on their website and you only have to buy it once and just refill the razors and shave bar. The refill packs are $9. They no longer have the black color in my video and have made some product enhancements. The razor now comes in pink and navy. The new blade has 3 razors instead of one and has a moisturizer strip on it. The razor also now can pivot for a closer shave! Pre-shave moisturizing bar is made with: - chamomile - Olive oil - Shea butter - Cocoa butter - Coconut oil The bar activates with water and leaves skin feeling soft after your shave!! $15 well spent! #CheriePartner

I really like the other creams. Marine Ultra-Rich is a thicker texture. It's definitely needed for colder weather. Pro-collagen & Resurfacing Cream are average textures that are smooth and very creamy. Sometimes they make my oily skin too oily. The only issues are the fragrances in the creams. They are pretty strong. Overall, this is an amazing Collection to have!! Have you tried these products?

The correct order to apply your skincare
What is the correct order to apply your skincare products? This is one of the questions I get asked the most. With so many products out there, layering your skincare can seem really overwhelming. A general rule to follow is layer your products from thinnest to thickest, and apply your highest percentages of active ingredient products first for maximum absorption. 1. Cleanse- It obvious cleansing is the first step, but it’s important to understand your nighttime double cleanse. In the morning you will want to use a gentle cleanser which will not strip your skin of natural oils. At night, start with the creamy/oil cleanser first. This should be applied to dry skin so the rich texture is able to get your makeup and sunscreen off. Follow with a water based cleanser to get your skin super clean. Some favorites are: FARMACY - Green Clean Makeup Meltaway Cleansing Balm DHC - Deep Cleansing Oil CeraVe - Hydrating Facial Cleanser 2. Masks- Your treatment masks should always be applied to clean skin. A creamy hydrating mask for dry skin, a clay mask for extremely oily skin, or an exfoliating mask like The Ordinary - AHA 30% + BHA 2% Peeling Solution to solve most skincare issues or just to maintain glowing skin. 3.Toners/Essences- The first of your leave- on skincare. This step is optional. Some swear by it and some skip on it. I absolutely love it and cannot skip this step. I have dry skin and when I apply my essence it feels like quenching my skin’s thirst. It also gives you damp skin for better product absorption for future steps. - Current favorites: BYROE - Bitter Green Essence Toner 4. Serums and Actives- You will want to apply the products with the highest concentration of active ingredients first. This way they are closest to the skin, and absorbed first. In the morning I apply my holy grail vitamin C first. SKINCEUTICALS - C E Ferulic With 15% L-Ascorbic Acid Vitamin C Serum this is also the thinnest of my serums. You want to try your best to go from thinnest to thickest consistency. In the evening, you want to apply your chemical exfoliant (1-2 times a week) followed by the rest of your serums by consistency. 5. Eye Cream- I like to apply my eye cream before my moisturizer to ensure absorption. Depending on your needs and concerns some of my favorite eye creams consist of GLOW RECIPE - Avocado Melt Retinol Eye Sleeping Mask perfect for dark circles, wrinkles and fine lines. 6. Moisturizer- It’s now time to layer on your cream- based products. Here you will also layer in order of consistency. Start with your gel- based cream and top off with your thickest moisturizer. Top it all off with your 7. Face Oil to seal your products in and in the AM with your SPF, the most important step to skincare.

Non-Texturizing Primer for Acne & Sensitive Skin
YAS! Finally! A primer I can actually use on my face without worrying about major breakouts, dryness, or added texture! Those who have larger pores this ones for you too! 😃😃 I didn’t want to rave or get happy about a product without using it for awhile and this is especially true of primers. Many primers on the market add to the creation of major breakouts, feel too heavy/sticky, enhance my skin texture, smell, or pill. I have been officially using this product for about a month EVERY time I use foundation and I can definitely say this is a winner! In the first photo you’ll see the texture of the PEACH & LILY - Skin Shield Blurring Primer and the after photo is with both foundation and primer on. I used IPSA’s Retexturizing Foundation for this photo. Since trying for a month, I have not experienced any major breakouts. Maybe one pimple here or there. It’s a definite upgrade from having your ENTIRE chin/jawline area breakout all at once every time I use a different primer with foundation. The consistency of the primer is very light and watery. According to Peach and Lily, it is made to protect against pollution, blue light, toxins, makeup, etc. This formula has ZERO silicones! Some silicones can clog your skin, causing breakouts. I’ve noticed that as it dries, it doesn’t feel like your skin gets forcefully tightened and dry. The formula is hydrating and dries like a mist- undetected and in a subtle manner. It adds a natural, second-skin glow to your foundation that you can see in the after photo. If your foundation is matte and you want it to stay that way, this formula shouldn’t drastically alter your foundation’s finish. Regardless it will help promote the longevity of your makeup. Tips for applying: You only need a small amount per facial part(forehead, cheeks, chin, nose). The amount I placed in the photo is literally the same amount I place on these areas of the face. Rub it in with clean hands after applying your skincare routine! For those of you who have slightly large pores, good news! I was happy to see this product not further increase my pore size! It actually minimized them. During the times where my acne is healing and there are dry patches, it actually helped moisturize the areas and didn’t increase texture(no extra bumps/creases showed). My foundation did last me over 8 hours when using this primer! I highly recommend this product, especially for those of you who have dry, acne-prone, and sensitive skin. If you have oily skin, try using this product with a bit of powder before applying your foundation to promote longevity. Happy Priming!

💥Only Cost $18!! 👉🏻Easy Hair Dye at Home
It’s been a long time since I wanted to dye my hair into blue. When I found that all the hair dye products were on sale at pharmacy, I knew that it was the time to go for it! 🙋🏻♀️What I bought： Schwarzkopf Brilliance Intense Colour Crème #91 *2 Schwarzkopf Nordic Blonde L1 *1 Some garbage bags to prevent soiling clothes (I can hardly believe it only costs me $18 for all these things!) 🙋🏻♀️Colouring process： 1️⃣Put on the gloves, use Schwarzkopf Nordic Blonde L1 first, mix the specific reagent according to the instructions, shake well and apply it to bleach your hair 2️⃣Spread evenly on the part that needs bleaching by hand or comb (I focused on the end of the hair) 3️⃣Hold on for 45 mins, then rinse directly with water 4️⃣Now comes the hair dye. Again, mix and shake it well, and apply it evenly. Here I use two boxes of colorings. For those with longer or heavier hair, you may need to use one more 5️⃣Put on a disposable shower cap, hold on for 45 minutes, then wash it without shampoo but conditioner in the box. Congratulations, you've finished this hair dyeing! 🙋🏻♀️My thoughts： Actually, I thought I failed at first because my hair looked black indoors. Unexpectedly, it looks good in the sun in blue and black. If you want a more obvious blue color, you can try Schwarzkopf No. 90 or other blue colors. For me, I am quite satisfied with this~
Turning myself into Merengue from ACNH 🍓
Hi, my name’s Francine and I’m addicted to Animal Crossing!!! 🐶🐷🐱🐰🦊💗 If you guys have been following along you’ve probably seen my other ACNH inspired lewks. Someone suggested I did Merengue next, and honestly she was already on my list! Merengue is a normal rhino villager and her name comes from “meringue”, a type of dessert made with egg whites and sugar. My husband has her on his island and she’s the cutest!! 🍰 I also got inspo from @neoini on IG! They did this look a while ago, and I’m just beyond obsessed. Here’s what I used for this look: 🍓 e.l.f. - Poreless Putty Primer 🍰DIOR - Forever Skin Correct Concealer 🍓essence - All About Matt! Fixing Compact Powder 🍰essence - Satin Touch Blush 🍓COLOURPOP - Strawberry shake shadow palette 🍰CALEY COSMETICS - Beach Babe Natural Lips 🍓Glossier. - Glossier. Lip Gloss 🍰Freck BEAUTY - THE ORIGINAL FRECKLE 🍓OFRA - Limited Edition Rodeo Drive Highlighter Ornament 🍰 ANASTASIA Beverly Hills - Dipbrow Gel How did I do it: • First I started by prepping my skin, so I used my favorite primer atm. The elf poreless putty primer gives me a smooth, flawless base every time. • Next I spot concealed with the Dior forever skin correct concealer, I wear shade 1W. • I like to keep my brows soft when I’m doing villager inspired makeup lol, so I only went in with the dipbrow gel, which I don’t love but I can’t find my elf wow brow 😔 • Now for the eyes I used one of my favorite palettes from CP and did a soft, shimmery pink eye bc the lil strawberry nose is the focal point here! • The nose was so hard guys, I used a white concealer and a green eyeliner from a now discontinued beauty brand and just carefully tried to draw a strawberry. Any white creamy shadow or concealer will work and any green shadow or liner is ok! I used the shade Daiquiri from the Strawberry Shake palette for the rest. Ta-da! • To set my makeup I used the essence - All About Matt! Fixing Compact Powder I purchased this powder when I did my Flora makeup and needed a white fixing powder. I went with Essence because honestly I rarely ever use mattifying powders for my regular makeup routine, and Essence is inexpensive and they’re powders are just top tier. This powder is supposed to be “invisible” so I just build up until I can no more and it works great! Its surprisingly lightweight even when I apply like 10 layers to get maximum opacity. Also the price is hard to beat! $3.99 for 8 grams 🙌 • I used the Satin Touch Blush in Coral love. • For the freckles I used the Freck BEAUTY - THE ORIGINAL FRECKLE the liquid-y formula and small brush makes it easy to draw fake freckles, but it’s a little warm for my taste and way too small. Def not a need.

DIY PUMPKIN ENZYME MASK- EXFOLIATE & GLOW 🎃
You can make so many masks with pumpkin purée that are completely customizable to your skin care needs. I chose this specific mask for its exfoliating and nourishing properties. When done with the mask your skin will be hydrated and glowing. With continued use, dark spots will improve. Benefits: Pumpkin- “rich in enzymes, beta-carotene, amino acids, and antioxidants to fight the visible signs of aging” Honey- nourishes and improves blemished skin Glycolic acid- improves skins exfoliation rate providing an even skin tone and texture What you’ll need: 2 tbs pure pumpkin purée 1 tbs honey Few drops of a glycolic acid ( I used which has glycolic in it) To make: Put all ingredients in a dish and mix. Apply with a mask brush or clean hands. I wait until the mask dries up a bit (around 30 minutes) then wash off. 🎃This mask has a solid consistency. If you work quick it will not slide around the face. It smells just like pumpkin and if you want you could even add in some essential oils. 🎃I have combination, sensitive skin and have not noticed any sensitivities with this mask. I would recommend to those who are looking to lightly exfoliate and improve their skins texture. Or if you love pumpkin, you will love this mask! #CheriePartner
☀️Sience says Tinted Sunscreens do it best☀️
Hello beautiful skin + beauty lovers 😊 I love spfs because they are so important to the health of our skin and our whole body☀️ I was excited to try the FIRST AID BEAUTY - Weightless Liquid Mineral SPF 30 because it’s a tinted sunscreen. Regular sunscreen blocks UV rays so that’s still awesome, But visible light is not blocked in this capacity. Visible light has been proven to cause damage to skin just like UV rays. non-tinted sunscreens are formulated to be invisible on skin, and therefore cannot block visible light. Tinted sunscreens are awesome because the added color base in the product is beneficial to blocking visible light because the color remains on your skin, creating yet another layer of protection between your beautiful skin and the sun. Here’s how it works, according to Neera Nathan MD and Dieter Manstein MD for Harvard Publising, “Tinted sunscreens combine broad-spectrum mineral UV filters, like zinc oxide and titanium dioxide, with added pigments — pigmentary titanium dioxides and iron oxides — that create the visible, skin-tone color that can reflect away visible light. The colored base of tinted sunscreens is created by mixing different amounts of black, red, and yellow iron oxides with pigmentary titanium dioxide, resulting in a tinted sunscreen that can be matched to any skin tone.” Boom! That’s how it’s done. Who wouldn’t want that extra protection without white cast?! How does FIRST AID BEAUTY - Weightless Liquid Mineral SPF 30 perform? The only issue I have with this is when rubbing it in, it feels grainy and gritty like sand or something. It disappears once all the way rubbed in, but it kind of weirded me out 😛 I was reading a bunch of reviews and some people claimed to feel this as well. I think mine might have been old or something. It is not bothersome enough for me to not want to try it again. I will still use & probably repurchase this. The finish on this product is amazing. I really like it for my combination skin. Once soaked into the skin, this sunscreen became invisible and left a soft sheen/dewiness on my pale skin. It made my skin really soft, too. I would also like to point out there for me the sunscreen didn’t really do much in terms of blurring imperfections on my face. I honestly couldn’t really tell that I had anything on after it was all the way rubbed in, except for a light glow it gave my skin. So if you’re looking for a tinted sunscreen with more coverage I would probably recommend looking at a different product. I also like the ingredients in this, squalane being one of the first few ingredients, working to moisturize and nourish my skin. Do you guys like tinted sunscreen? What kinds do you wear?

Skincare Trend - Superfoods 🥬
Skincare trends! Do you follow, skip, or wait for others to give you their honest opinion? Well if you said the latter then I am here to tell you all about this superfood skincare trend and more specifically the kale, green tea, and spinach superfood trend 🥬🥬🥬! The way I found out about this trend was by searching on Instagram and seeing what my fellow beauty bloggers were sharing! For reference, I have oily combo skin with subtle dry patches during the winter season! At the moment my skin is relatively clear with large pores as my main concern. First off is the YOUTH TO THE PEOPLE - Superfood Antioxidant Cleanser ($10.00 - 2 oz). This cleanser is cold-pressed with antioxidants to remove makeup and prevents build up in the pores, while keeping skin’s pH balanced. It’s meant for most skin types (dry, normal, combo, and oily). You can use it in the morning and evening, however I mainly use it in the evening to truly clear my makeup from the day! Unlike other makeup cleansers, you should dampen face and use two pumps of the superfood cleanser. Then add water gradually to get all makeup off from the face! P.S this product comes in a glass bottle making it great for the environment and recycling! Next superfood spotlight features the YOUTH TO THE PEOPLE - Superfood Air-Whip Moisture Cream with kale, spinach, and hyaluronic acid ($48.00 - 2 fl oz). This thick yet lightweight cream is perfect for oily combination skin! It’s full of antioxidants, rich superfoods, and hyaluronic acid! It targets the following concerns: fine lines, wrinkles, dryness, and loss of fitness. The kale is full of vitamins C, E, ana K! The green tea is packed with antioxidants, and HA is a natural hydrator! I like this moisturizer is perfect for my current issues! Like I mentioned before I have oily combination skin and dry spots with the changing weather on the east coast! I’ve been using Youth to the People for a few months and I am excited to share I am a big fan of the products, but they do run on the more expensive side 😕. This is a vegan, cruelty free, and gluten free skincare line! And as far as the skincare trend featuring superfoods, well I am 100% a fan and encourage all to hop on this bandwagon because you will not regret it! Superfoods bring so many benefits to our skin and it would be a shame to not spread the word around for all to hear! #CheriePartner
YOUTH TO THE PEOPLE-Superfood Air-Whip Moisture Cream
I have used Vaseline but lately CeraVe - Healing Ointment and I can’t get enough. I apply this as the last step in my skincare routine at night. I do it a few times a week. I recommend adding petroleum to your routine if you: 1. Have dry skin 2. Use actives or ingredients in your skincare that are drying (for me it’s retinol and vitamin c) 3. You need to heal your skin after a skin care treatment or after your feel you have over exfoliated your face Honestly, my skin feels so hydrated and glowy when I wake up. As we approach the colder months, I know I’ll be reaching for this more and more!
