So I have been such a big fan is Skinceuticals for some time now, however, like most people, I cannot justify continuing to spend over $100 on one product! So I’m always on the lookout for products that will perform similar to theirs. My all time favorite product form Skinceuticals is of course, their GOAT serum, SKINCEUTICALS - C E Ferulic With 15% L-Ascorbic Acid Vitamin C Serum

Keepin It Simple
Hi Cherie Fam! ❤️ I first want to start off by saying thank you so much for choosing me for your Cherie Creator Pick this week! I am so unbelievably ecstatic! I honestly never thought I could win anything like that & it truly means a lot to me! I love this app & everyone on it so much!! 🙏🏻💋 I also just want to talk about products in general. I went on a journey this year with my skin because one day I woke up, looked in the mirror, like always & was just disgusted. 😖 I had texture all over my face & it was there for a reason! I was NOT taking care of my skin, in the least. My old skincare routine was laughable. (Get ready to be horrified) I would only wash my face when I showered, with bar soap, 🧼 & I would VIGOROUSLY rub it to try & “rub” off the texture. 🧽Hahaha. 🤦🏻♀️ It’s funny now, but back then I didn’t know anything about skincare!! 🤷🏻♀️ Looking back on when I started my journey, to now, I have tried ALOT of different products. 🧴🧪💊🛍 Some that I used for a while (& still do) & some that I will never, EVER touch again! 😂 One thing I learned though, is simple is best. With your products & your routine. I try to use the least amount of items possible & the products that have the best ingredients. ♻️✅ My current routine is so simple. Morning & night I use these products, in order: ☀️🌙 ▪️CeraVe - Foaming Facial Cleanser For Normal To Oily Skin ▪️FIRST AID BEAUTY - Ultra Repair Wild Oat Hydrating Toner ▪️The Ordinary - Hyaluronic Acid 2% + B5 ▪️timeless SKIN CARE - 20% Vitamin C + E Ferulic Acid Serum ▪️CeraVe - PM Facial Moisturizing Lotion At night instead of using Cerave PM, I use: ▪️OLAY - Regenerist Night Recovery Cream & honestly, I have seen the quickest & most results since I have simplified! 💁🏻♀️ Basically, you need to find what works for YOU! & if it takes a year, 5 years, 2 weeks, to do that, that’s okay! Just hang in there & stay consistent! 🗓⏰ I’m so thankful for this app! 📱 & I hope you all have a great week! 💖 Talk to you guys soon 💋 @cherie@Cheriebeauty@CheriePick #simpleskincare #skinjourney
Products to love ❤
CLINIQUE - Moisture Surge Overnight Mask This is such a luxurious moisturizer. I wear it a few times a week and when I wake up my face is soft and firm. Just a dab will do ya!CeraVe - Mineral Sunscreen Lotion SPF 50 for Body with Zinc Oxide Love Cerve products but this one definitely leaves a cast. Forbid you apply too much you will look absolutely Geisha. Certain I'm well protected, so I save this for a beach or hike day.elta md SKINCARE - UV Clear Broad Spectrum SPF 46 Goes so smooth and actually feels moisturizing. I love that it has niacinamide and its legion of skin benefits. ANDALOU NATURALS - Pumpkin Honey Glycolic Mask I'm a self proclaimed maskaholic; and, this is one of my favorites. Tingles for a few seconds upon application. Reminds me of chemical peels I've had done with a facial. timeless SKIN CARE - 20% Vitamin C + E Ferulic Acid Serum Don't leave the house without this and my sunscreen. Said to boost effectiveness of sunscreen and contains antioxidants, anti-aging and improve hyperpigmentation. The Ordinary - Hyaluronic Acid 2% + B5 Super plumping. I sometimes mix this with my Retin-A. I've repurchased several times. As soon as this bottle runs out I have The Ordinary Marine Hyaluronic which I'm excited to try. Cos De BAHA - Niacinamide 10% Serum Another love. Also contains Alpha Atbutin. I apply this after my Vitamin C and before Sunscreen or after a chemical exfoliant or mask (AHA/BHA).

drunk elephant review with fungal acne🐘💗
as someone with fungal acne, buying the same products can be reaaallyyy boring. so this is my review of drunk elephant as someone with fungal acne!! * disclaimer, NONE of these products are fungal acne safe!! use at your own risk * ￼DRUNK ELEPHANT - Slaai Makeup-Melting Butter Cleanser this cleansing balm doesn’t really emulsify when you activate it with water, leaving a really oily feeling😕 and doesn’t remove all my makeup ￼DRUNK ELEPHANT - Beste No. 9 Jelly Cleanser Deluxe Sample this is a really nice gentle foaming cleanser... and thats pretty much it. ￼DRUNK ELEPHANT - B-Hydra Intensive Hydration Serum i love this serum! its a lovely gel serum that absorbs in quickly and is greak at oil control ￼DRUNK ELEPHANT - C-Firma Vitamin C Day Serum this serum is a little tricky, i haven’t really noticed a difference in my skin in terms if brightness, i do have a bit of dark spots and they haven’t budged. not to mention this formulation is a rip off of the SKINCEUTICALS - C E Ferulic With 15% L-Ascorbic Acid Vitamin C Serum ￼ ￼DRUNK ELEPHANT - Lala Retro Whipped Cream this is a thicc moisturizer that surprisingly doesn’t leave my oily skin looking greasy af. its a good moisturizer for dry combo skin! ￼￼ ￼DRUNK ELEPHANT - Protini Polypeptide Cream this moisturizer feels exactly like the lala retro... its just 8 dollars more expensive ￼DRUNK ELEPHANT - T.L.C. Sukari Babyfacial Mask this mask burns so bad the first 20 seconds but then it settles down. i really havent seen a difference in my skin so ￼DRUNK ELEPHANT - Virgin Marula Luxury Facial Oil ive only used this oil a few times but wow it really makes your skin feel super soft and dewy ￼DRUNK ELEPHANT - Lippe Balm DRUNK ELEPHANT - Lippe Balm i love this lip balm but its 16 dollars and the claim are completely false! in conclusion, i wont be repurchasing anymore of drunk elephant products because in reality they are just good products... nothing too special ESPECIALLY for the price. they aslo didn’t want to provide information about the percentage of black employees during the Pull Up Or Shut Up movement so yeah. their aesthetic is cute but ive grown out of this phase 😀 like and save!! xo melanie
Too much money!
Just finished the SKINCEUTICALS - C E Ferulic With 15% L-Ascorbic Acid Vitamin C Serum and LOVED IT but it breaks the bank...wish I could afford $166 every few months for this. I think my plan is I’m going to try a couple other products and see if they are just as good or if I’m going to have to make the sacrifice in the end. So I’m going to try MAELOVE - Glow Makerand see how this Vitamin C works and it only cost $27.95! I heard about this one from@Dr.Tomassianand I am very excited to try this one! I’ll let you guys know if I can see a difference when the bottle is done.
Skinceuticals Serum 10 Skinceuticals hold the Duke Antioxidant Patent which led me to believe it would be A) most efficient and B) oxidise at a slower rate than other serums. A 10% concentration also sounds appealing to me - more gentle and something I’d be able to use on a daily basis. I prefer a ‘less but more frequently approach’ with active ingredients. 🍊 INGREDIENTS. Aqua/Water, Dipropylene Glycol, Ascorbic Acid, Glycerin, Triethyl Citrate, Ferulic Acid, Sodium Hyaluronate. 🍊 USAGE. Every morning, straight after cleansing. 5-6 drops pressed into face and neck. 🍊 TEXTURE. The lightest Vitamin C serum I’ve tried. Ultra-weightless and feels like nothing going on! You would need to use a hydrating serum with this though, it’s definitely not hydrating enough on its own. 🍊I used this daily for over 12 weeks and slowly but surely.

Antioxidant Dream Serum
SKINCEUTICALS - Phloretin Cf Alongside prescription strength Retin-A, this the most life-changing skin product that I’ve ever used. I’ve been trying to find the perfect antioxidant/vitamin C serum, at any price range, and Phloretin is just that. I was initially going to purchase CE Ferulic but had read reviews preferring Phloretin. I have fair skin during the winter and this brightens it dramatically. This product isnt’s not too oily at all which is what I usually worry about with my am serums. This is basically your morning orange juice. It protects your skin from all those harmful free radicals and provides your skin with antioxidants. My favorite part is how it protects against hyperpigmentation. Good to buy if an offer is on, you won’t regret and a bottle typically lasts me 2.5 months using once per day or every 2 days.
Over a month ago @skinceuticalsca sent over these beautiful serums plus their 0.5 retinol for me to use and share with you all! Honestly, I had high expectations knowing these are medical grade products and how highly rated they come.... but they somehow exceeded these high expectations! I am shocked at how smooth my skin is. That was the first thing I noticed. My skin was so smooth like a babies bottom and the texture was virtually gone. My redness and scarring was half of what it was only two weeks in and the pimples stopped coming! I know that blemish defence is the main product to thank for my clear skin since it’s stopping the acne from forming and then it’s clearing up the rough texture and clogs that we’re deep in my skin. Next C E Ferulic is heaven sent. It’s 100% plumping up my skin with the extra collagen production, my skin is brighter and I have a soft look to my skin. I’m not quite glowing as I wish as my skin still suffers dryness, but I know having the antioxidant protection is saving my skin. The discolouration defence is iffy. I was hoping to see my acne scars vanish with it, but maybe I just need to use up the bottle and keep going! I’ve read mixed reviews, but I’m still hopeful. After a month of just the serums I decided to try the retinol (not pictured) and HOLY GUACAMOLE! My skin was definitely dried out and after a pretty severe stress breakout, it actually brought down a line of cysts on my jaw in two uses. It’s a strong retinol that works quick. I didn’t even have any irritation or flakiness, just some reasonable dryness. It’s a beautiful creamy texture that soaks in nicely and feels nice under my thick night moisturizer. All in all, I am a HUGE SkinCeuticals fan now. I have since purchased many other products and I continue to be shocked at just how good and worth it they are. I have the best skin of my life despite life throwing me curve balls and trying to ruin it.

Let’s Talk Vitamin C 🍊🍊🍊
What is it: A type of ascorbic acid that is extremely high in antioxidants. What does it do: helps to even out skin tone and improve the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. It can also shield skin from environmental stressors. SKINCEUTICALS - C E Ferulic With 15% L-Ascorbic Acid Vitamin C Serum How I use it: I apply it as a serum every morning before following up with moisturizer and sunscreen. I love this vitamin C serum so much because it’s such a powerful antioxidant that helps to brighten my skin tone by improving the look of post-blemish marks. I’ve seen such a big visual difference in my skin in terms of discoloration and tone. I highly recommend it to everyone!

Ok you bought it, but how do you use it? 🍋Keep in the fridge 🍋Apply to dry skin 🍋Use after cleansing and toning but before serums and moisturizers 🍋Use with a sunscreen If you are using a face wash with salicylic acid do not use together.

Ok people!! It’s time to start spreading the love and sharing the products that have changed our skin for the better. The first product I would like to highlight is the PETER THOMAS ROTH - Potent-C Vitamin C Power Serum This baby is pretty $$$ (about $100CAD) so I have only purchased it during winter months for the past 2 years. With daily use, after only 5 days, I, without fail, start to receive un-fished-for compliments about my skin. “You look amazing” they say “Who? Me??!” I reply followed by a rant a out this AMAZING vitamin c potion I’ve found It definitely smells like a campfire but this is the natural smell of Vitamin-C that is usually masked by harmful chemicals added to other VC serums. The PETER THOMAS ROTH - Potent-C Vitamin C Power Serum can easily be introduced into your current daily routine to give yourself that pregnancy glow that might even throw your parents for a loop at the next family gathering ;) Talk soon....xx
