What are your favorite “clean” fragrances? I love the indie brand Inkling Scents, they make great perfume oils in glass packaging and don’t use a bunch of synthetic fragrance notes. No added colors or glitter or extras, just quality fragrance you can feel good about using. I also find a lot of indie niche clean scents and fragrance brands on Etsy.

Retinol 101
Retinol 101
Let's talk Retinol! 🌱 I've been always intrigued and also drawn towards Retinols and Retinoids because of their smoothing, brightening, firming, and zit-killing benefits, without hardcore irritating your skin. What is Retinol? In simple words, Retinol is just one from of derivatives of Vitamin A. Retinol and Retinoid (an advanced and more recent form of Vitamin A are available as countertop med, and doesn't need prescription) where in, the more stronger form that is Tretinoin need prescription. Retinol is just one of the many different types of retinoids (the umbrella term for all vitamin-A derivatives, including retinol) that are on the market. A drugstore anti-aging formula, for example, could contain retinyl palmitate (the weakest of the retinoids), or it could contain retinol (the next strongest and most tolerable) Simply put the benefits: ✨Prevents wrinkles ✨Brightens dull skin ✨Treats acne ✨Fades dark spots (Hyperpigmentation) ✨Boosts collagen production . . . . These are some of my favorite affordable and pricey options of Retinol. 1. @deciem @theordinary Ganactive Retinol 2% Emulsion The Ordinary - Granactive Retinoid 2% Emulsion 2. @skillrorganics Antioxidant serum 3. @sundayriley A+ High dose Retinoid serum SUNDAY RILEY - A+ High-Dose Retinol Serum 4. @theinkeylist Retinol THE inkey LIST - Retinol Anti-Aging Serum All of these have a their unique formula and texture, although the @inkeylist and @sundayriley ones are a little bit thicker, yellow gel serum. They're similar in formula. While @deciem one is my favorite so far, as it is very inexpensive and more on a liquidy side, which gets absorbed in skin quickly. The only Retinol I'd suggest to the ones who're trying it for the first time is @deciem Retinol 2% emulsion Retinol is my holy grail these days as it works on my hormonal acne as well. Have you tried any of these? Let me know in the comments! 🌟💕

Happy Valentine’s Day Beautiful Cheries❤️😘🍒 I love new cleansers so I had to purchase this New Amino Gel Cleanser. It’s a gentle (and when I say gentle I mean gentle) gel cleanser that treats skin to a restoring cocktail of 11 amino acids with a splash of sea water. This is a vegan 🌱 product, it smells good, a very refreshing scent & I actually really love the gel formulation. The day this product was released I watched the founders of Summer Friday on Sephora live talking about how amazing this is going to be for the skin, literally a smoothie for the skin. It was then that I chose to buy it, I’ve used it for three days now and I like the cleanser however, I think it’s too gentle for me currently. My skin concerns are oily & cystic acne so I need something a little stronger. I will continue to use this but I am currently in the middle of a very bad chin breakout so I am going to need to use something stronger than this until my skin clears up. Do I recommend this product??? Yes, I do, although I thought it was a little pricey for a cleanser at $38.00 a bottle. I love ho Summer Fridays has a recycling program and they use recyclable products, this is a glass bottle and I think the packaging is so beautiful!!SUMMER FRIDAYS - Super Amino Gel Cleanser

I love the simplicity of this product and the packaging. Skincare’s focus should always be in the ingredients. I think good skin and maintenance is achievable without having to break the bank. This company offers just that. I have fairly good skin so I didn’t purchase a lot of serums and acids from The Ordinary. I wanted to get the basics like this squalene cleanser and moisturizer/spf. They feel very nice and gentle on my face. I would buy again for the larger sizes. When my other serums run out, I’ll definitely buy my next drops products from them! The peeling solution amazed me. The scent wasn’t too overpowering and you can feel the product working on your skin. I’ll apply this every month with my routine. Just make sure you aren’t mixing it with other acids that would be harsh for your skin.
