2019-2020 skincare journey!
Hey girl hey! This is my first post on the Cherie app and I am so excited to share my skincare journey. Sis when I tell you it was a journey... girl. It was THE journey. My oily/acne prone skin and acne scars and I have been through it. We still have our days here and there. (Thanks Covid for making “maskne” a thing. 🙄) But we are FINALLY in a good place now. 😂 I’m excited to share my ride or die products with all y’all! Cleanser: URBAN SKIN Rx - Even Tone Cleansing Bar : Thank you tik tok for introducing me to this product! This overall is a great cleanser. It makes my skin feel squeaky clean after every use and I honestly think it has helped with my dark spots. However I give this 4 out of 5 stars just because I’ve been using it for a while and I miss gel/liquid cleansers. I’m thinking about switching to La roche or Cerave once this runs out. Morning toner: Glossier. - Solution Exfoliating Skin Perfector I LOVE THIS TONER! I use this in the morning and has been a ride or die for me. Love the light pink packaging however the pump can be a little hard to use just cause it can spray everywhere if you cover the pump too much. But this toner has been a favorite of mine and will be a part of my skincare routine for a long time. Night toner: The Ordinary - Glycolic Acid 7% Toning Solution ❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️ OBSSESSED. If I could use this in the morning, I totally would. But my skin would hate me so I reserve her for my nighttime routine. This toner is a GAME CHANGER FOR ME. I used to use my witch hazel toner and I regret those days. 😓 But I’m so glad I made the switch. This has helped with my acne and acne scars. 100% recommend to add to your routine! Morning serum: The Ordinary - Ascorbic Acid 8% + Alpha Arbutin 2% : A vitamin C serum that finally works for me!!! I love using this as a serum for my morning routine. I’ve tried so many vitamin C serums including ones from the ordinary and this is the only one that has worked! THE inkey LIST - Caffeine Eye Cream : Eye bags who? This magic trick eye serum makes me look like I’ve had a good night sleep. The trickery of this eye serum? Sis. Buy this and thank me later. Nighttime serums: The Ordinary - Niacinamide 10% + Zinc 1% : ❤️ I call this serum my ol’ reliable. I love this serum so much that I bought the big boy bottle. The Ordinary - Hyaluronic Acid 2% + B5 : Another ol’ reliable serum. Get this serum for your own good. THE inkey LIST - Retinol Serum : I use this twice a week and i can say bye Felicia to future wrinkles. THE inkey LIST - Vitamin B, C, and E Moisturizer : there’s a reason why this is sold out on Sephora. Buy it now. These products have transformed my skin for the better.
