Another beautiful HA serum other than Glowrecipe
Another beautiful Hyaluronic acid serum! I am a fan of Farsali products and this is no exception 😍❤️ MOISTURE REPLENISHING SERUM QUENCH by Farsali ✨💧 fARSÁLI - Quench I found it similar to Glowrecipe one in performance and details while the consistency is a little different. It's a hyaluronic acid serum that helps to replenish moisture in the skin by using a unique complex of low and high molecular weight Hyaluronic Acid. The staggered molecular weights of the Hyaluronic Acid are designed to help promote multi-depth hydration on both the skin's surface and in the epidermis. Enriched with replenishing Provitamin B5, the skin's elasticity appears improved as well as feeling and looking softer. ❤️INGREDIENTS: 💧Low Molecular Weight Hyaluronic Acid is a lightweight, versatile hydrator that attracts and binds 1,000 times its weight in water. Low Molecular Weight Hyaluronic Acid is such a tiny molecule, it's able to penetrate deep into your skin and replenish moisture from within. 💧Hyaluronic Acid High Molecular Weight Hyaluronic Acid, due to the larger molecule size, this Hyaluronic Acid sits on top of the skin, forming an invisible shield that traps moisture. This helps reduce moisture loss from stress, heat, extreme cold and environmental factors. 💧Vitamin B5 Vitamin B5 a naturally moisturizing form of Vitamin B5, otherwise known as Panthenol. This silky vitamin helps replenish skin for a soft and supple appearance. The best part is it's Ingredients list, it's only 7 Ingredients and the formulation is so good that I feel I have been sleeping on this product for this long. It feels so soft and smooth on skin, goes on silky, smooth and doesn't feel heavy. And after few hours skin feels super hydrated and plump. I found this serum to be working the best for dehydrated skin condition. Especially in the colder months. Dehydration leads to broken barrier and dullnes, this targets these issues! It's only 24$ which is a win in my opinion! Their opther products which are my favorite are a bit more expensive than this one! I love it! It goes on perfect under makeup as well! Would you like to try this?
Best Hyaluronic acid on the market!! 🍑😍
I recently won this Plum Plump Hyaluronic serum by Glowrecipe in @cherie New Beauty Buys Giveaway!! ❤️ GLOW RECIPE - Plum Plump Hyaluronic Acid Serum I am a huge fan of Hyaluronic acids especially for Oily/Acne prone skin types and dehydrated skin. Hyaluronic acid. To the less beauty savvy, it may sound like something you don't want to put anywhere near your face (we all took chemistry lessons at school, just sayin...). But, what if we told you that hyaluronic acid actually holds the key to smooth, flawless and hydrated skin? Yes. It's actually a gooey substance that's naturally produced in our skin mainly in skin tissues and eye area which works as humectant meaning it draws moisture from surrounding into the skin and helps it retain the moisture by eliminating Trans epidermal water loss!! It's truly amazing and works at targeting many skin concerns mainly aging, dehydration and dullness and if used correctly it gives you that healthy plump looking skin. 🍑Now, What is this product?? Combined with vegan collagen and vegan silk protein, this lightweight, oil-free serum deeply hydrates dry, dehydrated skin and diminishes the appearance of visible fine lines for healthy, bouncy, youthful skin. 🍑 Key Ingredients: ✨Plum (3 types): Three antioxidant-rich plums - Kakadu, Illawarra, and Burdekin - hydrate, nourish, and rejuvenate skin instantly and overtime, and work together with hyaluronic acid for intense, juicy hydration and a youthful appearance. ✨Hyaluronic Acid (5 weights) A powerful blend of multi-weight hyaluronic acids (ultra-low, low, medium, high, ultra-high molecular weights) that deeply hydrates layers of skin for plump, bouncy skin. Multi HA has multiple molecular weights in one ingredient, and forms a 3-D sponge like film to hydrate each layer of your skin Tremella HA is obtained from fermentation of Tremella mushroom and is super high molecular level to reduce moisture loss on your skin’s surface Flashfill HA is a next-gen of HA that improves the bioavailability of the Hyaluronic Acid in the skin and lasts longer in the skin Bio HA is a powerful HA with moisturizing properties to help water retention ✨ Vegan Collagen & Silk Protein Potent, plant-based powerhouse ingredients that help support a healthy-looking skin barrier by guarding against free radicals and hydrating skin. ✨Vitamin B5 Helps to repair skin by hydrating, soothing, and rejuvenating, resulting in a healthy skin barrier. This serum performs so well on skin, it's not so sticky yet enough sticky to work as a good primer under makeup. It has made my skin look plumper and youthful in just two uses! I am using it consistently to see how my skin responds to it and I love it so far! As mentioned above, its silky formula and texture makes it really unique for a good 5 weight HA serum! Have you tried this serum??

Unfortunately this didn't work great for me! 🥺
I have dark circles and fine lines and I look for eye creams that target these concerns. Recently I won this Indie Lee I-Waken Eye Serum in Cherie Cheerleader prize!! INDIE LEE - I-Waken Eye Serum I'm glad to have put this to a test! I liked the liquidy thick serum consistency and the milky texture of this product. Unlike many other eye creams it's great for absorption in under eye area. I was expecting it to work amazing for me but sadly it did not! This is what the product details are: What it is: A hydrating, antioxidant-rich daily eye serum that addresses dark circles and puffiness, leaving skin with a refreshed and firmer appearance. Skin Type: Normal, Dry, Combination, and Oily Skincare Concerns: Dark circles, Puffiness, Dryness Formulation: Serum Highlighted Ingredients: - Horse Chestnut, Mountain Ash Bud, and Witch Hazel: Address dark circles and puffiness. - Chamomile, Arnica, and Cornflower: Help soothe the delicate eye area. - Hyaluronic Acid: Helps to promote long-lasting hydration. 🍁 My Experience: I experienced it's great for people with puffiness and under eye bags. It slightly flattened my under eye area but for my major concerns like dark circles and fines lines this isn't working as effectively as my other favourite eye creams do. This certainly doesn't mean it won't help my concerns in the long run or it may brighten my under eye areas slightly if I use it consistently. With my other eye creams such as Nuria eye cream and The Ordinary Caffeine solution I see difference in my dark circles in just little than a week but I gave this more time than that to see if it works for my specific concerns and it did not do well. I will post an update of 5-6 weeks of use!

This is a peeling gel 😱 Looks like a cleanser
I got this intriguing product Cure Natural Aqua Gel in @cherie Creator box!! Cure - Natural Aqua Gel At first glance I thought it's a gel cleanser, Then I did some digging and found out it's infact a gentle peeling gel which pumps out as very liquidy gel on hand and when you rub into you skin it strts to peel similar to Wishful Yo glow enzyme scrub!! ✨ ✨WHAT IS IT? Natural Aqua Gel gently catches dead skin cells on the surface of the skin and removes them without using strong acids. It helps skin metabolism function better. There is no need to rub or scrub your skin hard and you will be surprised at how smooth your skin has become. ✨ HOW TO USE: Wash your face as you normally would. Dry off completely. Pump the nozzle 3 to 5 times to obtain the appropriate amount of gel onto your fingertips and apply to the desired area. Leave on skin for a few moments allowing Cure to react with the dead skin cells. Gently massage in a circular motion for 30 seconds to 1 minute. Do not rub too hard. The gel will turn into a milky white color, and beads of dead skin cells can be seen as they are lifted off the skin. Rinse well with water and then follow your regular skincare routine. For best results, use Natural Aqua Gel twice a week. Natural Aqua Gel can be used on other parts of the body such as hands, elbow, neck and knees. ✨ KEY INGREDIENTS: - Activated Hydrogen Water: helps maximize skin's energy conversion rate and has anti-oxidant properties. - Aloe Barbadensis Leaf Extract: preserves moisture and improves skin's resiliency. - Gingko Biloba Leaf Extract: helps prevent blemishes and freckles. It also helps skin retain moisture. - Rosmarinus Officinalis (Rosemary) Leaf Extract: has anti-bacterial and anti-inflammatory properties. ✨MY THOUGHTS AND EXPERIENCE: - Unlike other peeling gels it's very gentle on skin - It smells like alcohol so beware of that strong smell - My skin felt a lot smoother and glowy afterwards - It also brightened skin a little bit just with one use - With continued use, it made my skin glow even more and brightened dramatically - This also helped a little bit with existing acne or breakouts - Scars also start to fade a little bit due to exfoliation - The bottle is decently huge so you get a lot of amount for 38$ which should last me for weeks - I think this unique consistency for a peeling gel or physical exfoliator makes this product a stand out! Also, I really appreciate K-beauty products for such technological advancements in skincare formulations. - It's very very gentle on skin and my dkin didn't get irritated at all - I really liked this product and so far I think I'm going to repurchase this 😍✨ ✨ IS IT WORTH 38$: Yes! Absolutely! The results I saw with this are so unique and make it worth the price! It's also a very gentle form of extra step in your cleansing routine!

It's 69$ for 2 fl.oz which is a little on pricey side for me but the way it performs on skin is what makes it worth that price! I haven't found any moisturizer that goes on completely matte for my oily, acne prone skin. Generally I prefer matte finishes as they tend not to highlight pimples and raised bumps or scars. This works perfect for that. Do I think it's worth 69$? Yes because of the finish and Ingredients. Would you like to try this??

peach slices - Dark Spot Microdarts This is day 4 of me wearing a dark spot microdarts patch daily to see how effective it is. The photos speak for themselves, I stopped circling one blemish in day 3 and 4 because it’s gone. This main dark spot on my chin has been then for while, and I haven’t been able to find something this immediately effective on dark spots.. ever.. These patches come in a pack for 9 and it’s about $9. A $1 per patch is worth it for me with these results 🤹🏽♂️

It’s this stuff that saves my eye wrinkles…
My age: 22 My skin tone: light My skin type: dry skin with oily T-zone Major eye concern: fine lines, dark circles Eyes are the most obvious signs of your age. Though you have used expensive skin care products on your face, the fine lines around your eyes reveal your age. That’s why I always care much about my eye care. Last month, I suddenly found many fine lines around my eye corner, and dark circles are always my major concern, so I started to look for great eye cream. Then I found this baby. Intro to Elixir Enriched Wrinkle Cream I got to hear about Elixir when I traveled to Japan last year. It’s an anti-aging skincare brand under SHISEIDO, with 13 years of No.1 sales in Japan. I found some good reviews on Instagram about this enriched wrinkle cream, so I bought one on Amazon. It cost me $69, which is rather expensive. Its main target is to anti wrinkles around your eyes and to provide firmness. The main ingredient is retinol, which creates hyaluronic acid and leads to the flexible skin by increasing moisture content and improves skin. Using feelings You can see from the pics I attached, the cream is light yellow and it has a flower scent, which seize my heart. It’s has mild nature, non-greasy at all and it’s very blendable. It can quickly attach onto the skin with favorable feeling. It absorbs very easily. I can feel it constantly moisturize my eye area and make it soft, refreshing and moist. I prefer to use it only at night, after my skincare routine and apply it under eye area, around the eye corner and onto the eyelids. The Effects The effect is amazing!!! I obviously find my fine lines get smooth, there’re no new wrinkles around the eye corner and the obvious lines are disappearing. Additionally, my dark circles are greatly improved (I’ve been troubled by dark circles since my secondary school). I think it does help me fighting with aging and wrinkles. Do I recommend? Definitely highly recommended! I rate this stuff 5 stars. Although it’s a little costly, it’s 100% worth the money! It’s definitely my must-repurchase.

OTC Epiduo Dupe Part 1
**Disclaimer: This post is not meant in place of medical advice. It's best to consult a dermatologist about skin concerns when possible. This is another long one, y'all. I've broken it up into two posts to allow adequate explanation, but please, PLEASE, stick around to read part 2. Failure to properly use the products mentioned can result in skin injury!! WHAT IS IT? For those who don't know, Epiduo is a topical acne medication available by prescription only. It's two active ingredients however, are available over the counter. Epiduo consists of a combination of 0.3% adapalene and 2.5% benzoyl peroxide. While you won't find adapalene in that high of a concetraion over the counter, the lower concentration (0.1%) can be just as effective with less irritation. Benzoyl peroxide however, can be found in varying concentrations from 2.5% to 10% with the lower concentrations also being as effective as the higher. HOW DOES IT WORK? For the sake of brevity I'll just give you a brief rundown here. Adapalene adjusts the rate of skin cell turnover to regulate the process. In the case of acne, skin cell turnover is in overdrive. That means new skin cells are being produced while old skin cells are not being discarded properly. These old skin cells, along with sebum and bacteria, clog pores. The regulation of skin cell turnover prevents accumulation of all that gunk thereby keeping pores from being clogged. Adapalene is also renowned for it's anti-aging benefits, but that's another post 😉 Benzoyl peroxide (sometimes abbreviated BPO) penetrates the skin and is metabolized into benzoic acid and oxygen. The oxygen free radicals kill anaerobic bacteria. For a more in-depth look at BPO, see my last post! Together these ingredients prevent clogged pores and limit bacterial growth, addressing two of the main causes of acne. WHAT DOES THIS MEAN TO YOU? It means that your local drug store can supply you with everything you need to get started with an (almost) prescription strength acne treatment. Here are some adapalene products to consider: DIFFERIN - DIFFERIN Acne Treatment Gel LA ROCHE-POSAY - Effaclar Adapalene Gel .01% Topical Retinoid Acne Treatment CVS Health Adapalene Gel ACNE FREE - Adapalene Gel USP 15G proactiv - Adapalene Gel 0.1% Acne Treatment And here are some BPO products: Neutrogena - On-the-Spot Acne Treatment Neutrogena - Rapid Clear Stubborn Acne Spot Gel ZAPZYT - Acne Treatment Gel LA ROCHE-POSAY - Effaclar Duo (+) *Stores like Walmart, Target, and several drug stores have their own brands of BPO spot treatments which are typically comparable to name brands at competitive prices. *Make sure to check the concentration of BPO. In this instance, the lower the better. Stay tuned to find out how to use this hack and to hear about my product picks explained.

FREAKING AMAZING!!! My hair has never felt so smooth before using this
Lately, I've been having more difficulty getting my hair as smooth as in the past. I've also experienced a more breakage than normal. My hair is thin, fine and pretty coarse while also being stupid frizzy. I knew it's hard to get your hair really well in a short time. So I decided to ask tool for help to at least make my hair not that frizzy. Then I can meet people without being diffident. I bought ghd - Platinum+ Professional Performance Styler finally. I knew about this iron but didn't want to spend all that money on something that you can get for so much less in a different brand. However, now that I have bought this iron I have to say so far it’s seeming like a great investment. Ghd Platinum+ is an updated version of Ghd Platinum, which has a breakthrough in hair care technology, and the damage to the hair has been reduced from originally 50 percent to 70 percent now. It has a great design, and has very long cord. This flat iron only has one temperature setting, and you do not need to control it by yourself since it’s all automatic! Just push the on button and it’s all done for you, automatically adjusting the heat setting based on your hair. Smart technology! It heats up in a matter of seconds. This flat iron curls, glides, and glosses as if by magic! When using, it doesn’t pull and grab my hair, providing me a kind of enjoyment. And once I get my hair straightened, I don't have to straighten it again until I wash it. I can use it to do a fabulous hair job without damaging my hair, and it always leaves my hair shinier and smoother than ever and no breakage! My hair is bleached but it feels a lot softer after a couple passes with the ghd in comparison to other brands leaving my hair with shriveled dry ends. I received many compliments on how healthy my hair looks. Great experience!
