My hair care routine 😍 Anti breakage/hair loss
#ad #cheriepartner Hey everyone! I wanted to do a post on my hair care routine because a lot of you guys asked me how I grew my hair so long and I believe that with good maintenance and care you can get the length you desire. I have always struggled with thinning hair as I’ve gotten older, my hair malts a lot and also with the length it can get quite knotty and can get quite tangled. The thinner it was getting the stringier it looked at the bottoms and it didn’t look as flattering when I wore it down. A lot of my breakage and thinning hair could also be due to the fact I get a full head of foils with bleach every two months, and no matter what bleach is always quite harsh on your hair. My hairdresser at Rodney Wayne in Bethlehem (the best hairdresser I’ve been too!) knew I suffered with this and told me that a new beautiful range from Kerastase was coming out! 😍 She told me it was for anti-breakage and anti-hair loss so it makes the hair stronger from the root to tip to help prevent your hair getting thinner. It’s called the Kerastase genesis range. Not only does this hair care range have an amazing smell and awesome pink packaging; it also makes my hair feel really soft every time I use it especially the mask. It has quite a thick formula and is more intense than just a regular conditioner. It makes my hair feels super silky and my hair always smells so good! It has a fresh orange floral sent to it- enough to make you notice it in the room if you put enough on your scalp which I like. The serum drops are what helps the most as you put this into different sections of your scalp and massage it in and this works the product into your roots. I also find this is what makes my hair smell the most devine! 😍 I have been using this range for around 3-4 weeks now and I really like it because of the way it makes my hair feel, and I have also noticed my hair is malting less because there is less hair on my clothes and in the shower drain! 😱 I haven’t had to clear out the shower drain since I started using the range and usually it does get blocked up quite fast. On the packaging of the products it says continuous use of the shampoo, mask and drops for 6 weeks will make a difference to your hair. I can’t wait to have less breakage as this is quite annoying when I tie my hair up and it all doesn’t fit back into the ponytail and I need like 1000 bobby pins! And the more breakage I have, the thinner my hair gets! 😩 I highly recommend this range as I already love it and I know you guys will too! You will love the smell of this whenever you use it in the shower, and it looks super cute on the shower shelf as well. I hope you guys like this little review and will try out the products for yourself if you have the same hair issues as me! 😊🙊🤩👏🏼 KÉRASTASE - Genesis Scalp Serum KÉRASTASE - Genesis Strengthening Shampoo for Normal to Dry Hair KÉRASTASE - Genesis Strengthening Hair Mask

How me (& my partner) got such white teeth!! 😱
#ad #cheriepartner Hey everyone! I thought I’d do a post on how I got such white teeth as it’s a question I ALWAYS get asked!! My friends always compliment my partners teeth too saying how white they are. And who doesn’t want bright pearly whites?! A few people have asked about the first photo of us and if I have edited our teeth white, and I say nope!! 🙊 the red lipstick also makes teeth suuuuper white 😍 I know my confidence has gone up so much after having braces and then getting them whitened- I always smile with my teeth now when before I always smiles with my mouth closed. In the past I’ve tried other teeth whitening at home kits and they worked, but was a process to order and took a lot of time to whiten them and I ALWAYS got teeth sensitivity with these kits. We also have both been using the Colgate *4 shades whiter* toothpaste for many years now, but over the last year I’m onto a great natural alternative- blac charcoal & bentonate clay whitening toothpaste which helps with the up keep of having white teeth. About 2 months ago we went into lush smiles in papamoa (Bay of Plenty, NZ region) to get my teeth whitened professionally as the owner wanted to collab with me and I was super excited as my teeth were still white but had gotten quite yellow over the year of not whitening them. OMG! After 3 15 minute sessions in one sitting my teeth went 6 shades whiter!! I was so happy with the results and usually costs $199 for a whitening session if you take a friend- perfect for special occasions when you want your teeth sparkling white!! 😍 Then she introduced her at home Lush Smiles whitening kits and WOW is all I can say! Soo easy to use- literally spread the whitening pen over the teeth and bite down on the LED mouth guard, turn on the light for fast active whitening and keep in for 15minutes! You only need to do this for a week! Each time my teeth got a shade whiter. And the best thing is, it’s vegan and I got NO teeth sensitivity I couldn’t believe it! Not even a tingle that night or the next day! So I got Matthew onto trying the whitening pens aswell. The 3 whitening pens last a while as a little bit goes a long way, and every time my teeth get a tad stained or before an event, I use this kit! I am now shade 2 on the tooth chart that comes with the kit (last image) and I used to be sitting at shade 3-4 before using the whitening kit. And the before and after was before I got them professionally whitened with lush smiles. PS they ship worldwide and she also gave me a discount code to share with you all a few weeks ago! It’s ALYSHIA10 for 10% off at https://www.lushsmiles.net/ ❤️ If you do end up buying this kit let me know!! It’s so worth it especially if you have struggled with yellow teeth for a while or if you suffer from tooth sensitivity. This home kit is designed for sensitive teeth, and it’s SO easy to use!! 😍 I hope you guys liked this review and it was helpful in some way! ❤️ #Lush Smiles NZ - Wireless teeth whitening device[products]#[FiveStars]

#ad #cheriepartner Who doesn’t love a good perfume?! 🥰✨ I’m going to talk about my favourites- and I have A LOT in my collection! (A whole 40 of them!) Some of these I have brought and some of them I have been sent over the years. I know everyone has different preferences on the type of smell they like, so I decided to include a range of scents that I love and that I think you guys will love too! 😍 If you are from NZ you can buy these all from Farmers NZ, or just shop online. In no particular order of favourite, here they are: 1. Paco Rabanne PURE XS for her EDP This is such a cool bottle! I love the snake wrapped around the top! This is a musky scent and perfect for night time but still has an electrifying floral scent to it! 80ml RP: $190NZD. 2. Versace Eros pour femme Eau de toilette This is also another awesome bottle I love that gold outter edge with the Versace logo around it! This is a perfect day/night scent as it has a great mix of floral scents & hints of wood/jasmine scents. 100ml RP: $151NZD. 3.Giorgio Armani Si One of my all time FAV perfumes! The ultimate vanilla, musky night time scent! I’ve had mine for years now and kept it by a window so it’s a little off now, but I still use it 😂 I got my best friend onto this too she loves it! 100ml RP: $237NZD, so it’s more on the pricey side! 4. Marc Jacobs Daisy Dream This is one of my favourite day time floral scents! It’s very light and fresh. I love Marc Jacobs bottles- they’re pretty enough to display in your room & I nearly brought the whole collection! I love this because the bottle is quick to grab and it has like a vanilla undertone to the floral scent which I love. 100ml RP: $133NZD so is the most affordable perfume I have mentioned so far. 5. Yves Saint Laurent Black Opium This is very popular amoungst beauty lovers! This is a nice deep, musky smell which has smells such as black coffee, orange blossom and cedar wood in it. I always grabbed this as the bottle was easy to pick up and store in my bag, & it’s such a pretty elegant bottle too! 50ml RP: $120NZD so is the most affordable perfume I’m mentioning- but 90ml retails for a whopping $262NZD! 6. Jean Paul Gaultier classique pin up EDP This is the newest perfume to my collection. It is probably one of my favourite bottles! Look how pretty it is-an hour glass figure that’s all sparkly pink! It’s probably the most unique scent I’ve tried! It has ‘orange blossom & marshmallow notes with ginger & lemon’ RP: $202NZD 7. Viva la juicy gold couture I love juicy couture bottles! Probably one of my favourites. It’s a nice deep vanilla scent. 100ml RP: $199NZD on fruugo NZ. 8. Carolina Herrera New York Good Girl EDP Look at that bottle! So cool! I love this fruity fresh scent and it’s one of my favs! This would make an awesome Christmas gift. RP: $218NZD 9. Viva la juicy pink couture The bottle is so pretty! This is the newest in the juicy range and I love how it’s a good mix of fruity, floral & musk all in one. 100ml RP: $149NZD ❤️
My favourite MAC lipsticks! 😍
Hey everyone! Who doesn’t love a good staple Mac lipstick? MAC lipsticks are known worldwide and have been a popular choice among many makeup enthusiasts and makeup artists for years now- so I thought I would talk about my favourite lip colours in the collection. I have 18 altogether, but I am talking about my favourite 6 shades. All lipsticks have different formulas and wearing power- my preferable formula being matte. They also have a retro matte formula, a satin, amplified, amplified creme, creme sheen, lustre and frost. It depends on your personal preference if you like more sheer, opaque or glossy formulas so I’m glad they offer this option. MAC lipsticks in NZ used to be $40 which quite pricey, especially for an artist wanting to fill up their makeup kitthey have dropped their price $5 cheaper, down to $35 which seems a little bit more affordable. I get mine from Farmers which is a retail store in NZ, but you can also buy them from any MAC store, Smith & Caugheys or Mecca Maxima/Mecca Cosmetica. My most recent purchase and probably my most favourite would be the new love me lipstick in the shade shamelessly vain. I’m wearing it in the last pic attached. I saw a post on Insta with models wearing the shade for a makeup shoot and I was obsessed! I had to buy it. It’s a beautiful orangey red shade that is super pigmented and would suit all skin tones. I think it looks amazing when I wear a fake tan! The next lipstick is brave. It used to be my favourite back in the day, it’s the one I wore in all my old YouTube videos! When the whole Kylie Jenner dark nude lips when around, this is when I brought this shade! It’s a satin formula. The next colour is Candy yum yum which is a matte formula! It’s super bright and daring, perfect for a night out or if you want to feel extra glam. I think this looks amazing with blonde hair- you’ll literally feel like a barbie 🙊 The next colour is lady danger which is quite a popular colour in the whole MAC lipstick collection. It’s similar to shamelessly vain but is more of a true red and has no orange undertones to it. It’s the perfect bright pin up red lipstick and is a matte formula. The next colour is Diva which is a matte formula- you can start to see the trend in me loving matte finishes! I find it lasts longer and doesn’t slide around as easily. I don’t find them too drying either, and it’s perfect to add a gloss on top of. This dark vampy colour is the perfect winter/autumn colour and I always used to get compliments when I wear a dark red/purple. The last colour is the perfect light nude shade! It is called blankety which is an amplified formula. This suits any thing you wear & looks great with a slightly darker lip liner. Who doesn’t want a staple nude in their collection?! That was the end of my MAC lipstick review! Let me know what shade you like the look of the most and let me know your current favourite shades in the comments! 😍❤️ MAC - MAC Matte Lipstick MAC - Amplified Lipstick MAC - MAC Satin Lipstick
Trying out the Aztec Secret Indian Healing Clay!
I finally tried this mask for the first time as SO many people have raves about it online!! Ive heard everybody saying nothing but good things about it- so I had to give it a go! 🙊 I have acne prone skin and have had acne scars ever since I was 15, with my pores getting bigger as I get older so this mask sounded like a miracle! 😝 My best friend brought it online and got 2 so gave one to me for around $35NZD, so seemed like an awesome deal considering this bad boy was sold out everywhere at one point it was that popular! The size of the tub is huge too so will definitely last me for ages! 😍 It was amazing to smooth onto my face, and I loved the green colour. You just mix with a bit of water or apple cider vinegar and stir (avoiding metal as this can alter the performance or the clay). I left my mask on for 20minutes as I don’t have sensitive skin- if you do have sensitive skin you leave it on for around 10minutes. It changes colour to a slightly lighter green as it dries and starts cracking after a few minutes- I love the look of the cracked clay 🙊 I loved the tightening feeling of this after around 8minutes- I could barely move my face but I loved that sensation! 🙊 It made it feel like it was really sucking out my pores and getting rid of any nasties. After I washed it off with warm water and a flannel I had only a little redness, but holy moly my skin felt SO soft and smooth and my pores appeared smaller already!! Also my skin felt tighter (it was!) after the mask and my fine lines wern’t as noticeable because of that 😍 I can’t wait to try out this mask more to see if it clears any of my active breakouts and blackheads. Definitely recommend so far, but I will keep you posted again on how it goes for me 😊❤️ AZTEC SECRET - Indian Healing Clay

The BEST red liquid lipstick I’ve tried!! 😳😱
#ad #cheriepartner #beautywithoutbarriers Hey everyone, I thought I’d let you know about my FAVOURITE RED LIQUID LIPSTICK EVER!!! I have tried many liquid lipstick brands from Mac, Kyle cosmetics, jeffree Star cosmetics, dose of colours, anastasia Beverly Hills, wet n wild etc, but the Milani matte satin lip cremes are the best formula I’ve tried! I’ve only got the shade 10 which is this bright red and SO many people ask what this product is when I wear it. I’ve never had so many compliments on a lip colour before, which is why I’m wearing red more often 🙊 I think a good red can really amp up your makeup look and make blue eyes pop! I’m definitely going to be purchasing more of the shade range! I’m so keen to try a good nude from the Milani matte satin range now. This is my favourite formula- not only is it super pigmented and goes on in one swipe, they don’t over dry your lips, it feels comfortable ALL night, they dry instantly when you apply, are non transferable and it lasts for ages, even when I’m eating and drinking! This formula doesn’t bleed out of your lip line either- plus it’s super affordable! Only $20.99. You can get Milani from Farmers or selected pharmacies if you are from NZ, or online at milanicosmetics.co.nz, beautybliss.co.nz, makeup.co.nz, lafemmebeauty.co.nz or beautybay.com or milanicosmetics.com if you are outside of NZ. Let me know if you have this, and what you think of it! I’ll definitely give you an update if I try more shades! ❤️ MILANI - Amore Satin Matte Lip Crème

Skincare for Time-Savers – My Lazy Day Skincare Routine for Acne!
As someone that is beauty product OBSESSED – I sometimes end up with a twelve-step routine before bed. Although this is fun, sometimes I have to step back and ask myself: · Do I really need this many products? · Could too many products be actually harming my skin instead of helping? · Could I achieve the same healthy skin with less product application and significantly less money spent? A few details about my type of skin include: · European heritage · Oily-skin that is dry with the wrong products · Acne-prone skin since I was fifteen/ subsequent scarring · Fighting anti-aging and fine lines, especially around my smile and forehead. (Curse my expressive face that cannot hide any emotions!) So I asked myself – Can I get this down to three products? And voila! I selected my favorite three that I could NOT live without. When I do not feel like bringing out the entire skincare brigade – I opt for these main trusted three: 1. Herbivore’s Blue Tansy Resurfacing Mask – A bit about this product includes: a. Great for a once-per-week mask b. Sometimes I use it twice per week if I’m suffering from bad acne c. The ingredients clarify using aloe (soothing) blue tansy (redness calmer), white willow bark (anti-inflammatory), all combining for a resurfacing-effect that fights bacteria. d. Contains BHAs and Salicin (an anti-microbial that kills bacteria) e. The scent is fruity and smells like herbs/aloe f. Blue tansy has a mildly-medicinal fragrance g. The texture is thick, almost like maple syrup h. A little goes a long way! i. One bottle can last me about 6-months if I use it properly j. Price: $48.00 k.Ratings: 4.5-stars out of 200+ reviews 2. Terre Mere’s Aloe and Tea Tree Toner – A bit about this product includes: a. I only recently discovered this in my Fab Fit Fun box, a subscription service that sends new beauty products to your door once per season. b. On days that I do not mask with the Blue Tansy – I only use this toner and the oil listed in #3. (If only using these bottom two products, I would use the toner first, and then follow-up with the oil on step #3, for an even more simplified routine). You should also cleanse/wash your face between toning and moisturizing, but we’re going for basics here! c. I tend to lean towards products with aloe, very calming for my skin’s redness d. The tea tree oil offers an anti-fungal property to fight harmful bacteria that clog pores e. Infused with a sulfur compound that they claim offers a collagen-boosting effect f. Vegan g. Willow bark (now that I’m researching, quite similar to the blue tansy mask indeed!) There is a reason these ingredients are used for fighting acne – they work! h. Fragrance-free - important unless the fragrances are naturally-occurring. You don’t want to clog your skin with dyes and perfumes. i. Price: $54.00 j. Ratings: None available 3. Herbivore’s Emerald Deep Moisture Glow Oil – A bit about this product includes: a. I love the brand Herbivore Botanicals! It is one of my all-time favorites. Not only do I trust them for clean, vegan, and highly-moisturizing products, but they also fight my breakouts like no other topical treatment ever has. b. The prices are slightly high – however, the formulas are so concentrated. I have been able to make a bottle of this last for 6-months. That is less than $8 per month. So there is no need to see your skincare as a major luxury! c. Fights redness and dullness d. Absorbs quickly e. Great for any skin type– even oily skin. That is what it’s for! If you have oily skin, stripping it of natural oils will only reinforce oil production, resulting in more breakouts. Do not fight your skin’s natural proclivity to produce oil! Okay, queens!? f. Even if you have dry or combination skin, this product will leave you feeling exceptionally moisturized without a greasy effect. g. Utilizes a blend of cannabis oil, hemp seed oil, omegas, and adaptogens h. $1 for each bottle sold is donated to help legalize cannabis for therapeutic-use and medicinal research i. The color is as the name suggests – emerald to light green j. I use about 2-3 drops per morning and night k. I gently massage it into the places that become the most inflamed (around mouth mostly) l. Price: $48.00 m. Rating: 4.5-stars out of 100+ reviews I have a few other favorites, but honestly, nothing compares to these OG three! These main three products are heavily responsible for my skin having: · Reduced redness · Less inflammation and acne · A smoother texture · A brightened glow See the before and after pictures for proof of my glow-up!
