DISAPPOINTED BY THESE 100% NATURAL PRODUCTS 😩
DISAPPOINTED BY THESE 100% NATURAL PRODUCTS 😩
I was so excited to try these out because I love moisturizers & I am always in search of a good one! These looked & sounded very promising! They’re from a woman owned company, completely natural, vegan, & cruelty free! However, I was quite disappointed. EARTH HARBOR - MERMAID MILK Nutrient Glow Moisturizer This moisturizer claims to give you a glow right away & it contains spirulina + matcha. I was excited about the matcha because it has so many amazing benefits for skin. It has a very whipped consistency which I like. However it always contains essential oils that were strong, although not toooo strong for my liking. But I’m really just not a fan of essential oils in my face creams. The moisturizer did make my skin appear a little brighter but the cream just sat on my face. All day long I could touch my face & still feel the cream sitting there! I hate that feeling! It also almost gave me a greasy appearance after a while? Not a fan. EARTH HARBOR - SIREN SILK Multi-Tasking Hydration Creme This one was absolutely awful. If I could give it 0 stars I would. It says to use it at night time & the apply it at least 5 minutes before bed so it can absorb on your face & not your pillow. It contains Sea Retinol + other Superherbs which normally make me love a product! But that just wasn’t enough here. First, when I put it on my face my eyes started to actually burn & I felt suffocated from the scent. It was THAT strong. Guys, I’m not being dramatic at all. The smell like attacked me it was crazy! I have never had something like that happen with a face cream! I couldn’t believe how strong the fragrance was. & to top it off, it wasn’t even a pretty smell. My husband described it as smelling like floor cleaner. But I powered through. The longer I had it on, the more “used” to the smell I got. So, I wore it overnight. But then I woke up even more upset with it! I had pilling all over my face. It almost looked like my face was peeling but it wasn’t, it was jus the cream. One thing I cannot stand about a moisturizer is pulling. That’s enough for me to throw it out! It also didn’t really even moisturize my face that well! All in all, I hated this experience. But if you want, you should try them out for yourself, don’t let my experience deter you from trying something new! I however, will be sticking with my Youth To The People Dream Mask & Superfood Whipped Moisturizer! Love those two!!

Okay guys as I have said before I am guilty of rarely ever wearing sunscreen. I just never liked the feel of it on my skin. I always felt like it made me greasy & clogged my pores. However, once I heard about this product I was very intrigued. NIOD - Survival 30 It actually isn’t sold in the United States for some reason so I had to purchase it on a UK website. (Beauty Bay) It is an antioxidant serum with SPF 30. At first, it appears to be tinted but it’s actually not. On NIOD’s website they state: “The slight tinted appearance is derived from the active technologies including Lutein, Fractionated Melanin and Pycnogenol.” It blends in with your skin so easily & does not leave a white cast like some other SPF products. However this serum literally makes my skin tone soo even & perfect! It also contains silicone so it completely smooths over my pores. AND besides all that great stuff, it’s a mineral sunscreen! So it protects against environmental & lifestyle issues. Like UV rays, blue light, etc. I have never loved a product as much as this one! I literally cannot believe how good my skin looks while using this stuff! For a 30ml bottle, I paid $33 on the Beauty Bay site. For me, that is completely worth it! It comes in this adorable packaging & pretty glass bottle. It also has a pump dispenser & squirts out the perfect amount for a single use! I really can’t recommend this stuff enough guys! It’s wonderful!! @cherie@Cheriebeauty@CheriePick

I won this cute little kit in a raffle & I couldn’t be more thankful! I have always wanted to try these products but never wanted to spend the money on all of them incase I didn’t like them! Inside this kit are the following products: DRUNK ELEPHANT - Beste No. 9 Jelly Cleanser Deluxe Sample DRUNK ELEPHANT - B-Hydra Intensive Hydration Serum DRUNK ELEPHANT - Protini Polypeptide Cream DRUNK ELEPHANT - C-Tango Multivitamin Eye Cream DRUNK ELEPHANT - T.L.C. Framboos Glycolic Resurfacing Night Serum DRUNK ELEPHANT - C-Firma Vitamin C Day Serum DRUNK ELEPHANT - Virgin Marula Luxury Facial Oil DRUNK ELEPHANT - Umbra Tinte Physical Daily Defense Broad Spectrum Sunscreen SPF 30 That’s literally a whole skincare routine! So far I started out my day with one of Drunk Elephants infamous “Face Smoothies” I washed my face with Beste No. 9 Jelly Cleanser & then combined C-Firma Day Serum, Virgin Marula Luxury Facial Oil, & Protini Polypeptide Cream together on my mixing trey with a disposable skincare spatula! I applied it all over my face & neck. Once that absorbed, I applied Umbra Tinte Daily Defense SPF 30 over my face & neck & was done! I love how the kit comes with steps to walk you through different routines you can use in the morning or at night! I will do a follow up review after I have used all the products for a few weeks! But so far, my skin feels & looks great! I have been breaking out lately & haven’t felt the best about my skin so I really needed this pick me up!! Thank you for reading! You guys are the best!! ❤️ @cherie@Cheriebeauty@CheriePick

Double Your Lash Length With Sky High Mascara!
I bought this mascara after seeing a post about it on Facebook. I love trying out new mascaras but rarely do I find one that I will use regularly like my beloved tarte - Maneater Mascara However this stuff is good. MAYBELLINE - Lash Sensational Sky High Waterproof Mascara It gave my lashes so much volume & length they literally doubled in size! My lashes are already pretty long to begin with but this made them look amazing. The photo is after applying only one coat so I can only imagine how good they will look after two or three coats! It also didn’t clump up my lashes at all. I applied it really quickly & lazily too because I was in a rush to get ready & I was still amazed! I honestly think this is going to be my new daily mascara. It is waterproof but not the annoying kind that leaves your eyes completely black when you go to take it off. It came off really easily with my POND'S - Facial Moisturizers Dry Skin Cream which is what I’ve always used to remove my eye makeup, since I was a kid! @cherie@Cheriebeauty@CheriePick

LOVE YOUR SKIN ❤️ From Junkie to Skincare Junkie
LOVE YOUR SKIN ❤️ From Junkie to Skincare Junkie
I have had quite a weird relationship with my skin throughout the years. This last year I have shown it the most love & care than I ever have throughout my life. For over 7 years of my life, I was a heroin addict. From the ages of 16 to 23 all I cared about were drugs & having “fun”. I certainly didn’t care about my skincare. I picked at my face, popped pimples, cleaned it with whatever I could find. I had no love for myself & I felt ugly inside & out. Luckily, over a year & half ago, while 5 months pregnant, homeless & living in my car with my boyfriend, a miracle happened. We got arrested. That arrest forced a chain of events that brought me here, today, writing this post. Right now, as I lay in my new house with my son asleep on one side of me & my husband on the other, I am clean & sober. & sobriety is the best gift I ever gave myself & I am so thankful for it. Through sobriety I found myself. My likes, my dislikes. Things I’m good at. Things I’m really not good at. (Cooking 😬) & it turns out, I really, really love skincare! It’s not a perfect love though, I still have my ups & downs. My breakouts & my imperfections. (Currently there are 3 pimples developing on my chin laughing at me😂) Regardless of that, I am happy & I enjoy every second of life today. I have come from using wet wipes to clean my face, to using the worst of the worst in early sobriety (St. ives - I remember you😖), to now having a good, healthy & consistent routine! I now pay attention to ingredients in my products & I know what they mean & what they do. I understand what my particular skin needs! & what to use to help it stay clean & radiant. I am so happy with my journey & so thankful that I’m alive to share it with you guys today. I am living proof that we do recover but that recovery, just like skincare isn’t going to be perfect. It’s real. There are good days & bad days. But no matter how “bad” a day could be while sober, I look back & remember how far I have come & how far I plan to go. Thank you for reading! ❤️ @cherie@Cheriebeauty@CheriePick

Sheet Mask Heaven ✨
Sheet Mask Heaven ✨
My absolute favorite sheet masks! 🤍TONYMOLY - I'm Real Rice Mask Sheet 🤍 🤍TONYMOLY - I'm Real Makgeolli Mask Sheet 🤍 🍚 Rice is such an amazing ingredient for skincare. There are SO many benefits. It keeps it supple & prevents wrinkles. It also lightens hyperpigmentation, dark spots, & aging spots on your skin! To top that, it reduces redness, as well as clears acne & blemishes! This mask does it all!! After leaving it in for about 35 minutes, I pat the rest of the serum into my skin & my face looks so radiant! 🌾 Makgeolli is another amazing ingredient. Filled with amino acids & vitamin B, this stuff firms & brightens your skin like no other!! It completely gets rid of my uneven tone & leaves my skin glowing! I think this is my absolute favorite mask. I want to try & find this in a serum because it has so many unbelievable benefits. Sheet masks are an important part of my skincare regimen. I don’t use them daily though. Usually around once to twice a week. I put them on after using my toner & before using any serums. I leave it on for about 30 minutes & once I take it off, I gently pat any extra serum into my skin. Then once it fully absorbs, I finish with my regular routine! Sheet masks are so refreshing & make you feel like you’re at the spa! & these TonyMoly masks specifically are my favorite. They contain amazing ingredients that have so many benefits! They have SO many different types that have all kinds of uses & ingredients, so you can definitely find the perfect one for you & your special skincare needs. They’re also really affordable. You can find them at Sephora for about $3.50 each! Have you ever tried a sheet mask? What’s your favorite kind? @cherie@Cheriebeauty@CheriePick

☀️big ‘ol SOL de Janeiro haul
If you have read one of my past posts about Sol de Janeiro, you already know I’m a dedicated Bum Bum cream user. We’re celebrating our 5 year anniversary this Spring🧴👰🏻! We’re very happy together🧡 I do pray every night they will release a deodorant!!!! Pleeeeeeeeeaase 🌴After trying various samples of their other body care & hair care products, I finally just broke down & went deeper into the jungle of my obsession. 🇧🇷 SOL de Janeiro means January Sun in Portuguese. I’ve always loved that play on words (Rio de Janeiro) & sentiment. In Rio, January is the height of Summer sunshine. I have a January birthday, & growing up in Northern California, this was definitely not the case🌁 The warm, rich sweet nutty scent is so comforting to me year round. I’ll be writing in-depth reviews for everything here, but if you want to check out my full review, the ingredient breakdown & scent profile info on SOL de Janeiro - Brazilian Bum Bum Cream it’s in a previous post😘 I was really excited to finally get my hands on a 🏄🏻‍♀️ SOL de Janeiro - Biggie Biggie Bum Bum Cream Almost 17 ounces of my favorite body cream with the adorable purple surfboard spatula💜 In that post I also reviewed SOL de Janeiro - Brazilian Crush Body Fragrance Mist which I completely love, only wish it lasted longer... So, enter: SOL de Janeiro - Cheirosa ’62 Eau de Parfum SOL de Janeiro - Cheirosa '71 Body Mist Just wasn’t the scent for me... but I had to give it a shot. It’s intense for a body spray, certainly more staying power than their Brazilian Crush body spray. It smells like very sweet kettle corn 🌽? SOL de Janeiro - Brazilian Touch Hand Sanitizer Spray A hand sanitizer that smells like bum bum? Yes please. Mind you, this is still hand sanitizer, but there’s a slight hint of that bum bum scent you love. My favorite hand sanitizer! A must with: SOL de Janeiro - Brazilian Touch Hand Cream also reviewed in my previous post. I’m still trialing SOL de Janeiro - Bum Bum Body Scrub But it smells wonderful, very moisturizing, but could be a bit too rough for sensitive skin.... SOL de Janeiro - Brazilian Joia Strengthening + Smoothing Shampoo my bf & agreed this was just ok, but we stan the conditioner hard: SOL de Janeiro - Brazilian Joia Strengthening + Smoothing Conditioner this is the shit! Seriously my new favorite conditioner! Last but not least, SOL de Janeiro - Brazilian 4 Play Moisturizing Shower Cream-Gel is a body wash I love to keep in my rotation. Smells like bum bum, so it’s a wonderful shower experience if you love their signature scent. ✨What are your favorite scented bath & body products? Or do you have a fav SOL de Janeiro product?

For a routinely healthy glow, it’s important to make sure your skincare routine is on point, but with dozens of different products for every skin problem you can imagine, it can be difficult to decide which products you want to use in the morning, before bed, or which products will work best together.
