NEW PRODUCT FAVORITES 😍
I just got back from a trip and I tried this shower gel and lotion at my hotel and fell in love! Not only does it smell AMAZING, it also has some pretty great organic ingredients too (I took the ones in the photo from the hotel but I ordered the full sized products online). red flower - Moonflower Purifying Body Wash is made with: * ginger: this has anti-inflammatory properties * chamomile: helps soothe irritated skin and is antioxidants rich * apple: rich in vitamin A and C. helps repair damaged skin cells and exfoliate skin * green tea: that helps to stimulate circulation, promote collagen renewal and maintain elasticity * cucumber: helps reduce sun damage and prevents water retention * Aloe Vera: helps moisturize and soothe dry and irritated skin red flower - Moonflower Softening Lotion is made with: - aloe Vera - olive oil - sweet almond oil These ingredients protect the skin agains free radicals, boost collagen, protect skin from UV rays and moisturize skin. Unlike my face my body gets super dry and I’m always looking for products to add moisture back into my skin and help with the tightness associated with super dry skin especially in the winter. These product sooth my skin, keep my skin glowing and smelling heavenly. The body wash retails for $30 and the lotion for $34 which I think is pretty pricey but I love these products so they will defiantly be a “treat yo self” purchase. #CheriePartner

KEEP YOUR LIPS SOFT WITH ALGAE
My sister went to Iceland and brought me back this awesome micro-algae lip balm that I love. I am big on lip care I have a lip balm in every bag each of which have different benefits for my lips. I have countless lip masks and scrubs because I feel like you can mask most skincare problem but once your lips have been cracked and dried it’s hard to bring them back to life or mask the damage with lipsticks or glosses. BLUE LAGOON ICELAND - Rejuvenating Lip Balm is packed with nutrient rich ingredients like: - Shea Butter - Cocoa Butter - Aloe Vera - Avocado Oil - Sunflower Oil - Algae - Jojoba Oil - Castor Oil - Peppermint Oil All of which are super hydrating and help restore your lips natural barrier that keeps in moisture. The algae in this product is derived from Iceland’s Blue lagoon and stimulates and protects your skins collagen levels. It keeps my lips moisturized, soft, supple and stays on much longer than some other balms I’ve used. Our lips can get so dry in the winter so this balm is helping me show my lips so extra love. #CheriePartner

ADDRESS YOUR SKIN CONCERNS BEFORE EVENT!
I have sensitive, oily, hyperpigmented skin with huge pores. I am always looking for products that will keep my oil production at bay and reduce the appearance of my dark spots and pores without irritating my skin. Whenever I have an event coming up I always try to swap out the products I can for milder ones to make sure I am setting my skin up for success. These products have helped my skins texture and tone in just a few weeks to get my skin ready for an upcoming event. CLINIQUE - CLINIQUE Liquid Facial Soap oily skin formula. This product is so gentle on my skin. I love it because it helps to reduce my oil production but doesn’t dry out my skin. I get the occasional breakout but I find that face gentler washes work best for keeping my breakouts at bay just my removing dirt and oil from my skin. URBAN SKIN Rx - HydraFirm + Brightening Serum this product really helps with texture and complexion. It leaves my skin feeling smooth and soft. This serum is made with peptides, lactic acid and Niacinamide which help reduces the appearance of my pores, acne scars and fine lines. URBAN SKIN Rx - Complexion Protection Moisturizer SPF30 I love a moisturizer with spf! The sun can deepen the appearance of hyperpigmentation so using a spf can prevent darker spots and aid in fading of existing spots. This product is super hydrating. It is made with Hyaluronic acid which helps the skin retain moisture. CLINIQUE - Even Better Clinical Radical Dark Spot Corrector + Interrupter This is a miracle product! This product has significantly reduced the appearance of my dark spots. This products also makes my skin look brighter and more radiant. This serum is also packed with ingredients that help with skin irritation, protect skin from pollution and moisturizes. BRANDLESS - Hydrating Rosewater Facial Toner Spray This product is great for when your skin is feeling super dry, irritated and inflamed. This product is so gentle on the skin. It is made with Aloe, Rosewater, Oat kernel extract and hibiscus extract. These ingredients work together to soothe, moisturize, treat inflammatory acne, smooths texture, removes dirt and oil, brightens skin, reduces the appearance of pores and fights signs for aging. The directions say to spray directly on your face but i like to spray it on a cotton pad and rub it into my face. #CheriePartner

BEST OF SEPHORA: HAIR PRODUCTS 💆🏾♀️
Sephora introduced me to these products years ago and they are still some of my favorites to this day! I love Moroccan Oil products because they are super versatile. I naturally have very dry coily hair and most of their products give my hair a beautiful shine and plenty of moisture to help my hair from breaking. I also wear wigs and no matter what texture I wear these products bring life back into my hair giving my shine, bounce and volume! MOROCCANOIL - Moroccanoil Treatment is made with argan oil. It is thicker than olive oil but thinner than castor oil. This product is full of fatty acids that promote hair growth and strengthen hair. When I use this product on my natural dry, coily hair I apply liberally making sure to saturate my hair from roots to end. When I wear wigs with looser textures I apply a dime sized amount to my hands and rub it in to my hair. This allows me to add shine back into my hair when it looks dull without weighing it down. It also acts as a great heat protectant for when I am straightening my hair. I ran out of my MOROCCANOIL - Moisture Repair Conditioner so it is not pictured here but love the moisture repair shampoo and conditioner set. The MOROCCANOIL - Moisture Repair Shampoo and conditioner are creamy and rich in argan oil, keratin and fatty acids that strengthen, condition and moisturize hair! This is hands down the best shampoo and conditioner I’ve ever used. It’s great for all hair types. It leaves my hair feeling silky. Worth every penny! (OGX Coconut Miracle oil combo gives me similar results and I’ve been using them more lately because they are sold at my local pharmacy. They are also cheaper in price). MOROCCANOIL - Hydrating Styling Cream this works great for my wigs. For straight hair I apply a small amount to my hair before styling . It helps with frizz and adds shine. For wavy to curly textures I apply more liberally and it defines my curls and adds a bit of hold as well as shine and moisture. Although this product works wonders for my wigs it’s not the best for my natural 4C hair. I find that the moisture from hair creams doesn’t absorb well into my hair and often leave white flakes all over once it dries. Oils work better to moisturize my coily hair. #CheriePartner

Chest Acne ‼️
You are already dealing with your face, back and now here comes acne in your chest. Chest acne as the name suggest is usually caused by oily skin or hormonal changes ( mine). Other cause includes: -Friction from clothing or jewellery -Excessive sweating - Drugs such as testosterone, corticosteroids, lithium - hormonal changes your body produce more oil - make up and perfumes - stress Types of chest acne (1) blackhead (2) cysts (3) pimples (4) pustules (5) whiteheads ⭐⭐HOW TO FIGHT CHEST ACNE⭐⭐ (1) Shower daily to remove bacteria, dead skins cells, dirt & oil that blocks your pores. (2) Use a mild cleanser or acne fighting body wash. Body wash which contains Salicyclic Acid . Use lukewarm water to open your pores & cold water to close your pores. (3) Exfoliate once a week. Use a gentle scrub. Like your face your chest needs care too. Exfoliating removes dead cells that clogs your pores. (4) Use Non-comedogenic ( none pore clogging) body lotion usually containing Salicylic Acid to get rid of breakouts and while moisturizing your skin. (5) Use an acne spot on treatment. Treatments includes over the counter creams, solution,gels that contain Salicyclic acid or benzoyl peroxide. Benzoyl peroxide bleaches clothing ( wear a white shirt or use an old shirt). Use at bedtime. (6) Avoid detergents that contains fragrance, dyes can be irritating to your skin. Look for hypoallergenic ( non irritating) detergents. (7) Wear loose and breathable clothing such as cotton. Tight fitting clothing can irritate the skin caused by rubbing against the skin. (8) Stay hydrated ... Drink you water❗
Swipe to see the AFTER!
It has been a long and TOUGH skin journey for me, but I finally made it and couldn’t be happier. This time last year, I hated my skin. Every morning, the first thing I did was look in the mirror to see how bad my skin looked. That’s what I worried about 24/7. Everywhere I went, I was always worried that other people were staring at my skin; it was all I thought about all the time. I was disgusted by my skin and it really lowered my self-esteem. But I FINALLY made it. I’ve realized that it is a NORMAL thing, so don’t beat yourself up about it. If you’re going through this right now, just know that it does get better! Keep your head up, beautiful! :) *These are results from taking accutane for about 5 months.
🏵A MIRACLE Product🏵
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 🤹🏽♂️

Chemical Foot Peel 🦶🏽 [TW: Feet 🚨]
I’m never getting a pedicure again. I purchased this EARTH THERAPEUTICS - Soft & Smooth Gentle Peeling Foot Mask From Walmart for $10 I was super nervous at first after seeing it didn’t work for people and other warnings but it turned out amazing! Okay so you get 2 foot masks, and to start out the instructions suggest that you wear it for 60-90 mins. I wore mines for about a hour and 15 mins. I suggest that you sit down and take a load off. It didn’t burn It didn’t have a smell It fits any size foot (I promise) I do recommend being prepared to be picking up dead skin from around the house! But y’all , this peel is amazing! My feet are so soft, softer than any pedicure I have ever gotten. It’s been about 2 weeks since I did it and my feet are still soft ! DO NOT FORCE THE PEEL ! If your skin isn’t ready to peel do not pick at it. This peel even peels the top of your feet. I moisturize with my O'KEEFFE'S - For Healthy Feet Cream and i swear my feet feel like silk! You also cannot use lotion ! That’s why feet so ashy 😩 I don’t know why but I guess it interferes with the peeling process .. but I didn’t use lotion at all I highly recommend to anyone who doesn’t want to go to the nail shop or anyone who wants to save money and mot pay for a $30 pedicure every month I will only do this peel every 2-3 months maybe longer depending on how bad my feet get.

LOOK AT ALL THE GUNK
I used a PEACE OUT - Peace Out Pores strip on my nose for the first time and I'm so impressed! Those dots are oil that was soaked up by the strips! Also, when I took this off, my blackhesds and any whiteheads were ready to pop. Like they rose up and the pore strips made them ready. I had a developing pimple (the big white blob) on my nostril and it wasn't even ready before I used this for four hours. Now it's almost there, and usually pimples aren't ready for almost half a day. I'm amazed and all the oil is gone (I didn't wash my face beforehand) plus it isn't sticky - the strips really stay on well and it didn't leave any residue which is amazing unlike the Biore ones which leave stuff behind. Overall, worth it and I'm definitely going to use these when my oil is out of control. ** I had this strip on for four hours, which is the minimum, as the packaging says for 4-6 hrs
