My skincare routine for summer ( All KIEHL'S)
As I have oily skin, my skin condition deteriorates especially when summer is coming. To get over the excess in sebum production and avoid causing problems like clogging pores. The emphasis of summer skincare is the cleaning and the right amount of hydration. ◇ Rare Earth Pore Cleansing Masque In summer, clay mask is always a good choice for deep cleansing. I would apply a thick layer of this clay mask after normal cleaning, and it really helps wash out the additional sebum without irritation. After washing it away, you will see blackheads coming out.

Toners for Oily/Combination Skin
Kiehl's - Calendula Herbal Extract Alcohol Free Toner $24.00 for 4.2oz - This toner smells floral, uses real calendula, and balances your skin. I liked it, but later learned the ingredient niacinamide would be helpful for me to implement into my routine so I opted for GM. GOOD MOLECULES - Niacinamide Brightening Toner $14.00 for 4oz - Night and day difference. WOW. Very impressed. Love the feel of it. I have been using it for 3.5 weeks and I can’t wait to continue. I use it morning and night, except when I use an acid toner once a week. Definitely recommend!! Great price. Can be found on beautylish!
Must-have products for my combination skin in summer
I have a combination sensitive skin. My t-zone is oily, especially in summer. There are acnes around my t-zone. I have two must-have products to use in humid weather. One is Kiehl's - Calendula Herbal Extract Alcohol Free Tonerand Kiehl's - Ultra Facial Oil-Free Gel-Cream The combo helps control my face oil and brings a refreshing and cooling feeling. This alcohol-free toner contains calendula herbal extract. It can cleanse and smooth the skin without causing irritation and redness. There is Calendula in the formula, which is famous for hundreds of years for its ability to heal the skin. it heals blemishes, prevents breakouts, and hydrates thirsty skin. I have used this for a few years. The texture is lightweight. The gentle and soothing toner moisturizes the skin. My t-zone oily skin is controlled, and I noticed there is a huge difference. I use this every morning before making-up with a cotton pad. It’s a really good product and I honestly recommend it After using this toner, I use ultra facial oil-free gel-cream to deep moisturizer my face. It is a super lightweight jelly texture feels refreshing and comfortable. It can be absorbed easily by the skin and provide the skin with long-time hydration. This is my new favorite face moisturizer in summer. It leaves my skin clean and refreshed. There is no fragrance in the formula, which is perfect for naturally oily and sensitive skin.it is good for pimples and acne. This is the best combo for sensitive combination skin. My skin is hydrating, and dead cells are removed after using it. There are visibly less acne and pimples around my face. It is a good value for the money. I would defiantly recommend these and buy them again.

September Empties: mini edition!
Today I’m doing mini Monday a little different! I used up a ton of products in the month of September, including lots of mini’s while traveling. So today I’m featuring my thoughts on the mini’s I finished. Stay tuned for my full size empties tomorrow! ✨ . . 🤷🏽♀️ voir - Sunrise Rituals: Signature Shampoo voir - Sunset Rituals: Signature Conditioner : Nice but I have long hair and it’s really hard to tell my thoughts with a tiny packet! But it did smell amazing. . 👎🏼 ORIGINS - High-Potency Night-a-Mins Mineral-Enriched Oil-Free Renewal Cream : this is a nice thick moisturizer for night time. But I can’t get past the smell. It reminds me of some bad fruity drink I had in college 😂😬 . 👎🏼Kiehl's - Calendula Serum-Infused Water Cream : this is just way too light weight and not moisturizing enough for my skin type. You might like this if you’re oily. . ❤️ philosophy - Purity Made Simple 3-in-1 Shower, Bath & Shave Gel : yess this is the lemon custard and it smells soo good! . 👎🏼 DRUNK ELEPHANT - Umbra Tinte Physical Daily Defense Broad Spectrum Sunscreen SPF 30 : this is SO greasy I can’t stand it. . 🤷🏽♀️ DRUNK ELEPHANT - Protini Polypeptide Cream : I don’t get the hype behind this. It’s also too greasy for me. And I’m not supporting DE right now. . 🤷🏽♀️ Milk MAKEUP - Kush Lip Balm : I like it! But not extremely long lasting. It did melt and get messy though. Would maybe repurchase on sale. . 🤷🏽♀️ NARS - Climax Mascara : nice for volume but it dried out quickly and flaked a lot. . ❤️ CLINIQUE - Take The Day Off Cleansing Balm : yes really enjoyed this. Would get on sale. Probably will save this little tub to put some balm from my full sizes in for future travel! . ❤️ REDKEN - One United Multi-Benefit Treatment Spray : yes a solid leave in conditioner!
🍒Cherie Made Me Buy It! Pt. 3🍒
🍒 I have combination skin so my t-zone is in the range of normal to oily skin and I have dry skin on my cheeks. My skin tone is warm ivory with a slight reddish discoloration in my cheeks I also have some freckles (sun spots) across my cheeks and my nose bridge (which bother me!). I also have very sensitive skin so I am alwyas cautious with new products or else my skin will becom super red and peel! 🍒I wanted to try out a new moisturizer since the moisturizer I was using was almost out. So as I was browsing through Cherie, saw a post by @AmazingStellaabout Kiehls products. After reading her review on the Kiehl's - Calendula Serum-Infused Water Cream I became interested and started doing my research. She did mention that she has oily skin so I wasn’t sure if this product would be good for me. After a few readings about ingredients and product claims I was super interested and... bought the product. This was truly a splurge for me since it was $50🙈 🍒This product is paraben free and includes some amazing ingredients that convinced me to impulse buy it. Hydrating ingredients include propylene glycol, panthenol, glycerin, and of course, calendula flower extract. It also has a really pleasant citrus scent that made me love it at first smell? The scent is super refreshing and light which I love! The citric acid, lemon peel oil, and citrus limon peel extract all contributed to the nice scent and exfoliating aspect of the product. Not to mention, these ingredients are also anti inflammatory and anti oxidants! It also includes as orbit acid which contributes to brightening and anti-aging! The only thing that I didn’t like about this product was the inclusion of dimethicone and sodium chloride since both of these are actually comedogenic. 🍒I absolutely love the texture of this product. Right when I lifted the lid, I was met with a beautiful smooth and bouncy gel like water cream. And if you know me, I’m a sucker for water creams and gel like textures. After applying this, my skin looks so dewy and plump. It glides onto my skin effortlessly and doesn’t leave a tacky feel since my skin absorbs it so fast (probs because I have hella dry skin). 🍒I did read that some people had allergic reactions to this product or that it clogged up their pores. This thankfully didn’t happen to my skin but I 100% recommend you to check out the ingredients for potential known allergens. And if you can get your hand on a sample size for free, do it. It’s pretty pricey for something that might cause a reaction. So make sure to test it on your inner arm if you do get a hold of the sample first. Don’t be like me and impulse buy. #cheriepaetner

December challenge PT 1
Sorry I'm catching up on this one, I posted it a few days ago and it disappeared 🙁 so I'm redoing it now 😁 Here's my fave products broken down: ￼Day 11 - SPF: I only have one face sunscreen, sun bum - Original 'Face 50' SPF 50 Sunscreen Lotion but I'm looking into getting the Supergoop! - The Jet Set SPF Kitbc it includes an Supergoop! - Unseen Sunscreen Broad Spectrum SPF 401 oz and a Supergoop! - Play Everyday Lotion SPF 50 With Sunflower Extract1 oz - pretty good deal and only $28 (Sephora) ￼Day 12 - moisturizer: it's a tie between Glossier. - Priming Moisturizer Rich Luxurious Face Cream and Kiehl's - Ultra Facial Cream for me; I love them both so much and swear by both. ￼Day 13 & 14 - face oil and mask: to be honest, I don't have a favorite of either, since I don't really use face oils/never really looked into them, and most masks cause an allergic reaction or redness of some sort. Every mask I've used has bothered me by making me all red and causing some mild acne, but one hasn't done anything bad, and its the Glossier. - Moisturizing Moon Mask . It's not my favorite product but I give it credit for not causing any rxns, plus 4/5 stars bc it did moisturize pretty well. ￼Day 15 - eye product: I like my Glossier. - Bubblewrap Eye + Lip Plumping Cream and Kiehl's - Creamy Eye Treatment With Avocado(haven't used the Kiehl's one enough to rate) ￼Day 16 - lip product: I love the L'ORÉAL - Colour Riche Lipcolour and have a bunch of them. I recently got a ARMANI beauty - Lip Maestro Midi Set (it's called mini set, there's a typo I guess) and these Armani lippies stay in place no matter what and are very pigmented too. Days 17-20 in my part 2 post! (most recent)

Every Wednesday Routine
I have a certain routine I do every Wednesday. Wednesday is the day I exfoliate, clay mask, sheet mask and scrub and deep clean my skin. 1st Step: fresh - Soy Face Cleanser Jumbo #Tadaam - Cleansing Brush[products]#[FiveStars] I cleanse with my soy cleanser using a cleansing brush. This brush is VERY soft but effective. I use the 60 sec rule and gently scrub. 2nd step: Kiehl's - Rare Earth Deep Pore Cleansing Masque I use this clay mask once a week to give my pores the deep cleaning they need. I leave it one until mask is hard. I rinse off with a warm cloth (gently). 3rd Step: PAULA'S CHOICE - Skin Perfecting 2% BHA Liquid Exfoliator I use this exfoliating toner once a week because it can be a little strong for my skin. This helps give my skin the extra dose of deep cleaning and removal of dead skin. 4th Step: #Simple - Water Boost Hydrating Sheet Mask[products]#[FiveStars] I sheet mask after all of the stress I put my skin through from the other steps. I try to use a Hydrating sheet mask but if not, I will use a any sheet mask that will replenish my skin. 5th Step: IOPE - Limited Edition Rentinol Expert Essence 0.1% I use a rentinol serum or essence usually this one to help with firmness and wrinkles. 6th & final step: I use a sleeping mask LANEIGE - Cica Sleeping Mask To sooth my skin and lock in moisture. It gives my skin the final dose of hydration. Is it effective? I have eczema/sensitive skin and I've tried a lot routines to help get and keep my skin healthy. This routine really gives my skin what it needs. The next day my skin very hydrated, smooth and glowing. It feels amazing and looks so healthy and clean. I've been using this routine once a week for 4 months now and it never fails. Do you have a certain routine at times or days? #whoisnee #cheriecreator #skincareroutine
Clay Mask is a must for large pores!
For me keeping my face as clean as possible is a must. I was born with a fairly oily skin (not pleasant, but gotta make the best out of what i have😉). And if you have oily skin like me, you're likely to have large pores due to an excess of sebum production. That means, you need to make sure your face is clean (though don’t over do it) coz if the pores (and they’re already larger than average to begin with) get clogged this can make the pores to appear even MORE BIGGER and noticeable. BIG YIKES. This is why i put Clay Mask in my skincare routine. Clay mask is amazing for the skin as they hydrate, cleanse, brighten, exfoliate, and boost overall skin health as well. Clay mask also removes excess oil from your skin while saturating it with the nutrients it needs. And thats simply coz clay masks filled with minerals your skin craves. As the mask absorbs on your face, nutrients sink into your skin and make it look soft, smooth and even brighter, also CLEAN PORES = PORES DONT APPEAR SO BIG! If you are like me; #oilyskingang, you can use them up to 2-3 times in a week, while people with dry skin should stick to using them once or (maybe) twice. In these pictures I’m using my very own Hydrating Clay Matcha Mask (fingers crossed, I’ll be able to finally launch them coz they really work on my skin; cleansing the pores, absorbing all the unnecessary oil, reducing redness and pimples while tightening the skin. A couple of my friends who have dry-really sensitive skin have tried it too and it worked amazing on them as well). I use it twice to 3 times a week. I also switch it up with Kiehls Rare Earth Pore Cleansing Masque and they both work wonders! But but but! When the Red Devil approaches, i tend to have hormonal acne so instead of switching it up with Kiehls, i use the Himalaya Purifying Neem Mask! It really helps with my hormonal acne! Ooowee, they be kissing those pimples goodbye so quick! Not to mention its really cheap (about $6) and its natural! Let me know if any of yall have tried these products mentioned above. (P.S: if my own Clay Mask launches i promise you’ll be the first to hear😉) warm hugs, ugggliz
Truth About Bobbi Brown's Skincare Products...
Bobbi Brown is more famous for its makeup line but I bought some of its skin care products before and was totally surprised by how good they were. I have combo-oily skin with cheeks in autumn and winter. BOBBI BROWN - Instant Detox Hawaiian Sea Water & White Clay Face Mask 💙This is hands down the best cleansing mask I've ever used! The dark gray-green paste smells a little like medicine and has a creamy texture. I read on its official website that it should be washed off 2-5 minutes after applying and to use it once a week or as required. Every time I used it, I could feel that my skin improved and my pore clogged. This product is most suitable for girls with combo-oily skin, large pores, a thin cuticle layer, and sensitive skin! 💓💓 BOBBI BROWN - Skin Reviver No. 91 Face Oil 💙This product can be either water based or oil based but I don't like greasiness so I chose the water based one. It has skin regeneration effect and smells like medicine. You can use a few drops of it after using a toner. I think it product works better when used together with other Bobby Brown skin care products. 💖💖 BOBBI BROWN EXTRA REPAIRE NOURISHING MILK 💙It is very light and absorbs easily, but it also smells like strong medicine. For girls with very skin in the summer, you can apply sunscreen and other makeup products after using this. BOBBI BROWN - BOBBI BROWN Hydrating Eye Cream 💙Even though it only has a moisturizing effect, it's very soft and it feels refreshing. It's absorbed quickly around the eyes, so there's absolutely no need to worry about milia! BOBBI BROWN HYDRATING INTENSE NIGHT CREAM 💙This is one of my favorite facial creams. It looks thick but it becomes very refreshing when applied. It's very moisturizing , smells nice and even though it's a night cream, it works well for me too when I apply it before wearing makeup in the morning.
BOBBI BROWN-BOBBI BROWN Hydrating Eye Cream
This was a great way to try a lot of caudalie a products. The eye cream is a must! Hella pricey but yah know maybe I’ll save up enough to buy it when it’s on sale during Christmas maybe. But hey hydrates my under eyes and I don’t have prominent dark circles under my eyes. The vinosorbet moisturizer Is very nice, smells good, has a interesting mousse texture I very much like and is hydrating too! The foaming cleanser is currently my favorite cleanser I bought the fuller size of it recently I love love it! Smells good too The vinoperfect serum is a cult favorite and there’d a good reason! It clears up any oncoming acne I have, helps smooth out my skin so my texture isn’t so harsh! I love this one too! And the beauty elixir is always a great refreshing spray. I love using it 5/5 recommend just great to try a large range of products
CAUDALIE-French Beauty Secret Set
I’d rather get coal than...
Clinique Clarifying Lotion 3 Product Function: This is a toner that is supposed to help create clear, and glowing skin. Product Target Concerns: This is formula is made for combination and oily skin types an Texture/Consistency: The texture is watery with a lingering smell of something like rubbing alcohol, and has a pink color. Overall Opinion: After sweeping the face with a cotton pad, I noticed that it does take off a lot of the dead skin and dirt off. However, since there is alcohol in it, it does make the skin feel dry afterwards. Also, when I used this on parts of my skin where it was really sensitive that day, whether it be due to pimples or and open wound, it would sting and hurt a lot. I wouldn’t repurchase this as there are plenty of other toners in the world that are for acne-prone and oily skin that doesn’t hurt the skin. Would I Recommend?: I would recommend this for the oiliest of oily skin because it does dry the skin out, but I don’t recommend this if you have dry skin. Rating: 2/5
My Murad Empties!!!-Part 2
Murad - Hydro-Dynamic Ultimate Moisture This product has a creamy white cream texture. Unlike La Mer, which takes a long time to emulsify, you only need to slightly rub it in your palm. It can be absorbed quickly and it keeps your face hydrated. I can feel the increase in hydration and softness. Murad - Invisiblur Perfecting Shield Broad Spectrum SPF 30 PA+++ This product is transparent. The texture is very soft and smooth. My skin looks matte after using it. I love to press it around my nose and cheek. It makes my pores invisible. You can use it on the partswhere your pores are visible. But when my skin condition is not very good, my skin becomes flaky. Murad - Rapid Relief Acne Spot Treatment Transparent gel-like texture. It is used for obvious red acne. It can effectively make it better and reduce redness the next day.

My The INKEY List Collection
My thoughts on the products I’ve tried from The INKEY List - Brighten-I Eye Cream - rating: 3/5 - let’s start with the pros: I like the applicator on this a lot! It feels really cooling under my eyes! I’ve kept in my skincare fridge for the extra refreshing effect! It is pretty runny, unless shaken well. I’ve read that there is micro-simmer in this and I didn’t notice right away. So, I busted it out and made sure I had good lighting and sure enough, I could see the simmer. I still like this slightly, because of the applicator. Will I repurchase this? No! Collagen Booster Serum - rating: 3/5 - This has your basic serum consistency and is decently priced, like all of The INKEY List products. It absorbs nicely into the skin and layers we’ll. I’m not a fan of the bottle, I wish it had a classic dropper. Will I buy this again? No. Kaolin Clay Mask - rating: 5/5 - I really like this clay mask. I have combo skin and worry about dryness in areas, but it doesn’t feel drying at all. The texture is so creamy when you wash it off, it’s heavenly! I notice my pores looks cleaner and any blemishes I have look smaller after using this! Will I buy this again? Yes, can’t beat the price!
