Alleyoop (formerly Sphynx) makes super affordable products with cute packaging! The alleyoop - All-In-One Portable Razor is $15 on their website and you only have to buy it once and just refill the razors and shave bar. The refill packs are $9.

CAN CBD OIL ADDRESS ALL YOUR SKIN CONCERNS ?
CAN CBD OIL ADDRESS ALL YOUR SKIN CONCERNS ?
I have oily sensitive skin on my face and they rest of my body gets super dry! I have Keratosis Pilaris all over my chest and back which is very dry and can make my skin feel tight and uncomfortable.So there are a lot of times when I try out new products and they irritate my face or I just need something that will soothe my dry skin. CBD oil is great for reducing inflammation, dryness, free radical damage and sebum production (oil that your face produces). CBD oil can also prevent acne. ami WELLNESS - Daily Face & Body Oil is a full spectrum hemp oil that contains - Tocopherol (Vitamin E) - Sunflower Seed Oil - Meadow foam seed oil - Coconut oil All of which work to build up your skins protective barrier, retain moisture and protect your skin from the sun. The product claims to improve skin texture and tone. My thoughts: First off this product smells amazing. It has a very light floral smell. The oil itself is thin and a clear-yellow color (similar to Canola or vegetable oil). The product comes in a small 1oz frosted glass jar with a dropper which makes it easy to apply. The oil absorbs quickly into my skin and the soothing feeling it gives is instant. It also has a calming effect and leaves me feeling a little less stressed or anxious which is a plus. I don’t smoke weed so I was hesitant to try this product because I didn’t really understand the difference between CBD and THC. Essentially CBD has little to no effect on your mental state but can have a calming effect. THC is what makes you feel high. Depending on what state you’re in you can’t even purchase products that have more than .3% of THC. This product will not make you feel high! It will soothe your skin and help with dryness! If you have irritated or dry skin like I do I would recommend this product. #CheriePartner

COOK UP SOME HEALTHY NAILS WITH OLIVE OIL
COOK UP SOME HEALTHY NAILS WITH OLIVE OIL
Pretty much any grocery you buy can double as some kind of beauty product. Especially oils! They are super versatile! Since we have been in quarantine I’ve been trying my best to take better care of my hair skin and nails. While my usual nail salon was closed and my acrylic nails grew out I started growing out my own nails. I have been applying olive oil to my nails and cuticles regularly to keep my nails healthy and strong. Our hands come into contact with so many chemicals (dish soap, hand soap, hand sanitizer, hair products, skin products, polish... etc). All of these things can effect our nail health and/or strip our nails and cuticles if the moisture it needs to grow strong and healthy. Olive oil contains vitamin E which helps repair dry brittle nails and grow long strong ones. There are 2 ways that I’ve used olive oil for my nails: 1. Just take a small amount of olive oil and apply it to each of your nails and cuticles and rub it in until it is absorbed. I do this before bed so that I don’t touch anything else and my nails can soak up all the nutrients while I sleep. You should do this once a day. 2. Olive oil nail baths - put some oil in a small dish and fully submerge nails and cuticles into the olive oil for 10-15 mins. Do this 1-2 times a week. I personally prefer to just apply once a day . Since I’ve started doing this my nails are growing faster, they are shinier and less brittle. If you have false nails and take them off and your nail is thin and damaged olive oils will repair them in less than a week! #Cheriepartner

4 WAYS TO REPURPOSE AND REUSE PRODUCT PACKAGING!
4 WAYS TO REPURPOSE AND REUSE PRODUCT PACKAGING!
A few weeks ago I was talking to some makeup enthusiasts about how I hoard my product packaging! The boxes that the product containers come in and the actual containers themselves. I don’t know why but I will keep them for weeks (or longer 🙈) before discarding them. So instead of just having them lying around collecting dust I’ve decided to repurpose them. I use tarte - Timeless Smoothing Primer and I can’t throw away my empty container until I replace it. So this time instead of tossing the old container I decided to use it as a container for a DIY lip scrub (I just used petroleum jelly and brown sugar). The packaging is so tiny I can just throw it in my bag or leave on my desk. I also kept the box from the new primer i got to put hair ties and hair clips in. I always lose my hair accessories in my bag so now I have a place that all of them can live! I finished my urban decayURBAN DECAY - Naked Skin Color Correcting Fluid color corrector and found a dupe for it but I really like the packaging for the UD product because it comes with a brush applicator that makes it easy to just apply to your face without having to use a makeup brush. I put the dupe product in the UD container and now I can apply it as easily as I did the UD product. I use Sunny Isle - The Original Sunny Isle Jamaican Black Castor Oil and applying it to my scalp can be a real chore because I have to part my hair and apply between sections. My sister uses a castor oil that has a dropper so she just sticks the dropper in her hair and onto her scalp and rubs it in without parting her hair but the oil that she uses is more expensive than Sunny Isle and I really like the oil just not the application process. When I finished my bottle of ASTERWOOD NATURALS - Vitamin C Serum I rinsed out the packaging and filled it with my castor oil. Now I can easily apply oil to my scalp without having to spend more money! #CheriePartner

PRODUCTS I’VE BEEN USING FOR OVER 10 YEARS!
PRODUCTS I’VE BEEN USING FOR OVER 10 YEARS!
I have oily and sensitive skin, that has always been true for my skin even when I was a teen. Growing up i had stubborn acne that led to acne scars which then led to hyperpigmentation. While my acne has calmed down and I now only get the occasional hormonal breakouts but my hyperpigmentation is still here. There are a few products that my dermatologist had recommended to me as a teen that I love and use to this day even though my skin has changed. Cetaphil - Gentle Skin Cleanser - when I had sever acne as a teen my dermatologist prescribed me all types of cleaners for my skin to help reduce my breakouts. A bunch of the cleaners we tried had harsh chemicals and irritated and dried out my skin. Cetaphil gentle cleanser is a water based gel like cleanser that helps to wash away dirt and bacteria without those harsh chemicals that strip skin of moisture. CeraVe - Daily Moisturizing Lotion For Normal To Dry Skin - this moisturizer is super lightweight and gentle. It is a white lotion that is hydrating but not greasy. Because my skin is so oily I didn’t want something that was going to add much more shine to my face but rather something that was going to keep my skin hydrated just enough so that my skin would over product oils as a result of a lack of moisture. DIFFERIN - DIFFERIN Acne Treatment Gel - the formula has changed a bit since I was a teen so I don’t think it is as effective now as it was back then. Before it was only available with a prescription and now you can buy it over the counter. It has a white gel like texture. This was a game changer for my acne. It really helped to reduce the appearance of my acne and dark spots. It is one of the only acne treatments that doesn’t irritate my skin. I try different skincare products from time to time but I always keep these 3 products stocked to fall back on when other products don’t work to plan. I would recommend these products to people with sensitive skin. #CheriePartner

If you have acne in this area, this might be why
If you have acne in this area, this might be why
So for the past month my skin has really been going thru it. I’ve been having acne and closed comedones all along my cheek, chin, and jaw, to the point where my skin almost feels like sand paper. Truthfully, I don’t let it affect me too much. I know I’m a human being and acne is completely normal. So there’s no need to take it out on my self confidence or self worth that I worked so hard on! That being said it’s still my body talking to me, and it’s still something to treat! If you sprained your ankle and knee accidents happen and everything will be ok, you’d still treat it! So even though I know I’m still ok and healthy and my skin is going thru a phase, I can’t ignore that it needs treatment. I have a pretty great skincare routine. YTTP kale cleanser, chemical exfoliant 1-2x a week, top tier moisturizers and serums and evening curology! But for the past month NONE of them have worked on me! So I finally went to a dermatologist because this clearly is way above my knowledge as a self-proclaimed skincare junkie. I did a televise and paid my insurance co-pay if $20, and after sending my derm photos of my skincare and a ton of other info on my the verdict was..... Hormonal acne caused by too much testosterone production! My doctor let me know that the placement of my acne, along the cheek, jaw, and chin, is 100% hormonal and that acne that closed comodones and acne he was seeing on my face is due to over production of sebum because of my body overproducing testosterone. He also said that this is super common among women over 25! I felt relieved to finally pinpoint what exactly was causing my acne (because I didn’t change anything in my diet or routine and just months before my skin was clear) and I was prescribed epiduo forte Spironolactane, a pill that blocks testosterone He also advised me to chuck my skincare routine and just use CeraVe - Acne Foaming Cream Cleanser as a wash and CeraVe - PM Facial Moisturizing Lotion along with the AM version as well. I am so happy I went to a derm because I would’ve been trying product after product feeling hopeless! I should receive my prescription later this weekend and I also have a 6-week check in coming up, so I will let you guys know how it goes :) If you have any q’s about seeing a dermatologist IRL or online, drop them below and I’ll do my best to answer them.

Tik-Tok made me buy this
Tik-Tok made me buy this
I saw this on tik tok and had to try it out. How To Use~ The instructions were in Korean, so I had to YouTube it. First take a Shower, just use soap to remove any body lotions. (Don’t use any scrubs, or body washes) I have tired it when I got out of the shower but find that I get better results by Soaking in a warm bath for 15 mins or longer. Do a test spot on your hand/leg to see if your skin is ready Pat yourself dry but not completely, leave your skin a little damp Get your Italy washcloth wet but not dripping wet & rub in circular motions. (Don’t use on your face) My Thoughts~ The wash cloth is ruff but not uncomfortable to use. I exfoliate 1 to 2 times a week using scrubs and was surprised To see how much dry skin came off when I used it. I especially loved the results on my knees and elbows they were a little bit darker than my legs and this help smooth skin, and actually made them lighter. My legs felt amazing the next day and my lotion absorb so much easier. I got this off amazon for 2 packs with 4 rags for only $6.99 but I have also read you can get them in a local Asian market for a $1.00 each. I would definitely recommend this to anyone and give it 5/5 ⭐️ #HMI - Italy washcloth[products]#[FiveStars]

save 💵! DIY 🌹 dip nails tutorial
An average dip manicure costs about $30. But what if I told you learning how to do it yourself isn’t that hard ? Here, I review the RED CARPET MANICURE - Color Dip Starter Kit with the shade Seductive Star + how to apply it ! ⭐️ TUTORIAL ⭐️ 1. Prep your nails. Push back your cuticles and file your edges. Make sure your nails are clean and oil-free. Or else the dip won’t stick. 2. Apply the Dip Base Coat & quickly dip it into the color powder. 3. After dipping, dust off the excess from your finger. I HIGHLY recommend having a cheap brush with you to help get it off more evenly. Tapping your finger only gets off so much. I use the eyeshadow brush most Anastasia Beverly Hills palettes come with. But careful! You can smudge the color with a brush, so give it 2 minutes to settle before touching it. 🌟 Repeat 2&3 until desired color and then go to step 4. 4. Apply Activator. This is what hardens the dip. But wear a mask! This step smells VERY strong and can give you a headache easily. 5. Apply another base coat over activated nail. DON’T skip this. It provides a smooth base for your final top coat. Wait at least 5 minutes for this to dry. The kit recommends you use a gentle nail buff to smooth uneven edges. But careful with this step. If you buff too much, your nail will have a white-ish spot that doesn’t fully go away by the end. 6. Apply 1-2 thin layers of top coat. Wait 10 minutes, and you’re set! ⭐️ THOUGHTS ON THE KIT ⭐️ I highly recommend it. The color Seductive Star is opaque on one coat. It also lasts up to 2 weeks until you start to see cracks. The kit includes a gentle nail buffer, lint wipes (to remove filing dust), wooden sticks, and a brush softener (if your brush ever gets hard). It cost $34.99 at Ulta. That’s the cost of just 1 dip manicure. Meanwhile, I’ve used this set 6 times since I got it during quarantine and it’s still going. I’ve even used the base coat with powders from other brands and it works just fine. 💫 In all, dip powder can look intimidating. But it’s totally worth giving a try if you like doing your nails yourself. You’ll save a LOT of money and get longer lasting manis out of it. PS: Yes, you can use regular polish over it :) And clear dip to seal it and last longer.

How I regrew my hair back with the tips I learned over the past four years...
How I regrew my hair back with the tips I learned over the past four years...
I've started losing my hair since high school, which has been quite painful for me for years. I've tried nearly all the methods I could find on the Internet, magazines and so on but the truth is that most of them don't actually work for me. After trying so many hair growth "tips", I finally got my hair back! I'll list the tips that are actually helpful to me, so you don't need to waste your time on the useless ones: 🌟Massage scalp with hair serums or hair oils Many of those who have bought hair growth serums or hair oils like to complain that these hair growth products or hair thickening treatments don't work at all, and I used to be one of them until I found that It's the way I apply these products hat makes them less effective! Don't just simply drop your hair treatments and then rub them your two seconds. You need to use a scalp massager or brush such as BOUCLÈME - Scalp Massager to gently let your scalp absorb them, which helps hair follicles remain active. I normally massage my scalp for at least 5 minutes before I go to bed. My favorite hair growth serum is GROW GORGEOUS - Hair Density Serum Intense in case you are interested.  🌟Take vitamin supplements Vitamins are the key for hair regrowth: Vitamin A promotes healthy production of sebum in the scalp; vitamin E helps blood circulation to maintain the productivity of hair follicles. My doctor advised me to take some vitamin supplements daily. At first, I thought it was nothing but a waste of money, but I noticed a difference that some newly grown babies were growing on my hairline after taking DL.MD - Liquid Multi-Vitamin Supplement for one month!  🌟Stick with mild hair care products Keeping hair and scalp clean is necessary, but steer away from the strongly detoxing ones as these strongly purifying shampoos overly exfoliate your scalp and will harm your hair follicles. By using gentle shampoos and conditioners like Anne Semonin - Memoires D'ete Gentle Shampoo and Neutrogena - Healthy Scalp Gentle & Soft Conditioner with Micellar Water, you are lowering the risk of infections and sensitive scalp that may lead to hair breakage or loss. 🌟Carefully using the wig clips I used my lace front wig sometimes to cover my bald spots on my scalp during the period that I suffered from the severe hair fall. The lace front wig usually has clips added for steady holding. If you are using a wig, don't constantly put the clips of your wig in one area of your head, as the clip can tug at your real hair. Also, don't pull at the wig or yank get it as these actions harm your scalp and aggravate hair loss. But don't get me wrong! I'm not saying that you need to avoid wigs, but you'd better be careful with them! Very quickly, I used to feel depressed and shamed for my hair loss, especially when I was a teenager, and I guess there must be someone who is still going through something similar. Having wresting with the hair fall for about four years, I gradually learned how to accept my hair fall and reacquired my confidence. It's not something self-inflicted, and some so many women are having the same problems! Take your time, keep your head up, and follow those really helpful hair tips, you won't be troubled by the hair fall for sure! Love you guys lots xx!
