Zendaya's skincare routine✨What makes her skin glow for 2020 Emmy Awards🤔
Zendaya's skincare routine✨What makes her skin glow for 2020 Emmy Awards🤔
The 24-year-old actor and singer Zendaya has shared her secret skincare weapons to let her glow at Hollywood’s biggest events 2020 Emmy Awards. Today we are going to explore her skincare routine and her recommended products.  Zendaya’s 3-step simple evening skincare routine: Step 1. Cleansing: SheaMoisture - African Black Soap Bar Soap($6) Wipe off all makeup and dirt with Shea Moisture African Black Soap Facial Cleansing Wipes. It is super important to wash your makeup off and keep your skin clear before going to bed. Step 2. Toner: THAYERS - Witch Hazel Blemish Clearing Toner ($7) Apply rose water witch hazel as a toner on the face with cotton pads. The toner is really refreshing and has a nice, soft scent. Step 3. Facial Oil: THE BODY SHOP - Body Shop Vitamin E Night Serum($27) Apply Vitamin E Oil so that her skin would look fresh by the morning.  Review: All her products are relatively affordable, and it’s a great choice to simplify skincare routines to avoid extra pressure on the skin.  The editor Jessica Vacco-Bolanos from the elite daily has tried Zendaya’s skincare routine. She points out that after one week of trying Zendaya’s night routine, her skin felt refreshed, recharged, and looked a lot less tried. She also tried to continue on this routine in the morning, and she felt her skin got so hydrated that the foundation could easily be blended, and power didn’t clump up afterward.  Comment below to share your thoughts💖

💰💰Money saved!9 Drunk Elephant Skincare Dupes Recommended by Youtuber Cassandra Bankson👍👍!(2)
💰💰Money saved!9 Drunk Elephant Skincare Dupes Recommended by Youtuber Cassandra Bankson👍👍!(2)
Hey guys! In my last post, I introduced four Drunk Elephant skincare dupes recommended by Cassandra. This post, I will continue to show you the remaining five best Drunk Elephant dupes that contain similar or identical ingredients as Drunk Elephant products and achieve similar or identical results but with lower prices👇👇. The Original:  DRUNK ELEPHANT - T.L.C. Framboos Glycolic Resurfacing Night Serum$128 The Dupe: #FARMACY - Honeymoon Glow AHA Resurfacing Night Serum[products]# $88 " FARMACY Honeymoon Glow AHA Resurfacing Night Serum is not the perfect dupe, but they are similar." said Cassandra. They both have the key ingredient AHA, which is a glycolic acid exfoliating the skin. Also, they have a greatest-hits list of non-abrasive chemical exfoliants: tartaric, lactic, citric, and salicylic acids are all in this potent PM cocktail to sweep away dead skin cells and brighten everything up.  The Original: DRUNK ELEPHANT - T.L.C. Sukari Babyfacial Mask$80 The Dupe: BIOSSANCE - Squalane + Glycolic Renewal Mask, $68 Cassandra pointed out that this dupe is a steal of a deal with some of the same great ingredients, like glycerin, salicylic acid, lactic acid, and so on, to exfoliate and renew our skin. Also, they have ingredients like squalane and hyaluronic acid plump and hydrate. The main difference is usage. The BIOSSANCE takes just 10 minutes each time and around 3 times a week while the DE recommends 20minnites and only once a week. The Original: DRUNK ELEPHANT - C-Tango Multivitamin Eye Cream$64 The Dupe: PAULA'S CHOICE - Clinical Ceramide-Enriched Firming Eye Cream $14 Vitamin C also gives your eyes a lift, especially when it comes to correcting dark circles... which is precisely the reason why the lightweight-yet-hydrating DRUNK ELEPHANT C-Tango™ Multivitamin Eye Cream  is so popular. On the other hand, PAULAS CHOICE Ceramide-enriched Firming Eye Cream pumps up your peepers for more than half the price. This Paula's Choice product also has a lot going for it, as it blends brightening vitamin C with retinol and five ceramides, making it quite the eye cream multitasker. Also, Cassandra pointed out that they have a similar texture as well as feel.  The Original: DRUNK ELEPHANT - B-Hydra Intensive Hydration Serum$48 The Dupe: FIRST AID BEAUTY - Ultra Repair Hydrating Serum$38 B-Hydra Intensive Hydration Serum contains sodium hyaluronate, a hyaluronic acid derivative, plus skin-brightening pineapple ceramides and vitamin B5 to lock in moisture. Similarly, lightweight and super absorbent, this First Aid Beauty Ultra Repair Hydrating Serum is a water-based gel packed with hyaluronic acid and soluble collagen for plumpness, plus allantoin, aloe, and colloidal oatmeal to further soothe irritated skin. Like Drunk Elephant, First Aid Beauty's products are 100% vegan, but opting for this same-sized serum will save you ten bucks. The Original:DRUNK ELEPHANT - Lala Retro Whipped Moisturizer with Cream$60  The Dupe: PAULA'S CHOICE - Omega+ Complex Moisturizer,$35  The key of these products is ceramides. Cassandra recommended PAULAS CHOICE Omega + Complex Moisturizer as Drunk Elephant's dupe.  PAULAS CHOICE  is almost identical – Down to the whipped, cloud-like texture! The velvety moisturizer highlights rich omega fatty acids to strengthen the barrier and fruit extracts to soothe the skin. It is an amazing way to end our nighttime routine! Cassandra personally likes this one WAY better, and it still has the same three ceramides that the DE one has at half the price. While Drunk Elephant is nothing short of a buzzworthy skincare brand, there's no denying that some of our favorite buys can take a lot of coin from that hard-earned paycheck once payday comes knocking. And for this reason, these best Drunk Elephant dupes climbing the ranks of cult-favorite products are worth trying at least once!

Hey Cherie Beauties! Recently, The YouTuber, a skincare expert, Cassandra Bankson put together 9 of the best dupes for overpriced drunk elephant products. As a big fan of Cassandra, I watched almost all of her science-based skincare videos. Here is the main content of this video about drunk elephant dupes! Read to save money👉👉! The Original: DRUNK ELEPHANT - Protini Polypeptide Cream$68 The Dupe: ACURE - Radically Rejuvenating Whipped Night Cream(Slightly Thicker Application) $18 According to Cassandra, ACURE Radically Rejuvenating Whipped Night Cream just copied the DE’s ingredients list and made it cheaper. ACURE boasts the same epidermal growth factors in Protini and includes ferulic and salicylic acids and Vitamin C in the form of a glucoside. Most importantly, they both contain marula oil, which is the special ingredient that Drunk Elephant always used! The Original: DRUNK ELEPHANT - Virgin Marula Luxury Facial Oil$72 The Dupe:  The Ordinary - 100% Cold Pressed Virgin Marula Oil $9.9 Comparing these two products, they have the same main ingredient, the cold-pressed virgin marula oil. Marula oil is one of the most nourishing oils on the market, with a laundry list of benefits. It delivers significant hydration and absorbs well thanks to its small molecular size. It also comes with an insane amount of antioxidants and omega fatty acids. Since both products only have one ingredient—marula oil—the ordinary oil can be the dupe. The Original: DRUNK ELEPHANT - A-Passioni Retinol Cream $105 The Dupe: elta md SKINCARE - Renew Eye Gel $77 Cassandra analyzed the ingredients and also found that these two products also have similar ones. They both have niacinamide, which is vitamin b3, a component good for redness and a little bit of oiliness in the skin. Also, they both contain peptides and a form of retinol. Spending less money, you're still getting the same benefits as DE! The Original: DRUNK ELEPHANT - C-Firma Vitamin C Day Serum $80 The Dupe: cleen beauty - Vitamin C Papaya Glow Serum$9 Undoubtedly, the hype surrounding Drunk Elephant's C-Firma Vitamin C Day Serum rightfully deserved, as it uses a 15 percent concentration of vitamin C, fruit enzymes, and antioxidants to promote brighter and clear-looking skin with every use. But there is also a dupe. CLEEN BEAUTY matched up with almost all the same ingredients as the Drunk Elephant C-Firma. It fuses certain percent pure vitamin C with anti-aging ingredients like salicylic acid and neurosensine. Plus, it's also under $10, allowing you to grab eight bottles for the price of one C-Firma serum. But Cassandra gave us a note that because of the tumeric, some people have noticed a slight yellow tint to the skin. Wanna know more DE skincare dupes? Follow me and click on the next post💖💖!

The Ordinary Ultimate Guide to Mixing & Layering✨
The Ordinary Ultimate Guide to Mixing & Layering✨
There are a lot of myths about how to play with The Ordinary products. Some products you could mix and match, but some cannot. The followings are some notes that I took based on the research I did at Cassandra Bankson's Youtube Channel. I've also attached the link on the bottom. Hope you enjoy it.💞 Antioxidants: They don’t pair well with water. Don’t mix it with other products on your hands at the same time, and wait around 30 minutes to 1h to move to the next step of your skincare. Or you could use your antioxidants and contradictory products at opposite times a day, one in the morning and one in the evening.  The Ordinary - EUK 134 0.1%: Avoid mixing with Acids, Vitamin C, L Ascorbic Acid 100%, and Copper Peptides.  The Ordinary - Resveratrol 3% + Ferulic Acid 3%: avoid mixing with water-based formulas and Copper Peptides  The Ordinary - Pycnogenol 5%: derived from pine trees. The most stable and friendly product to play with others. Avoid mixing with water-based formulas and Copper Peptides. However, the Vitamin Cs, retinol, and niacinamide can be used with this product.  The Ordinary - Squalane Cleanseris good at everything.  The Ordinary - Glycolic Acid 7% Toning Solution: use only once a day. Be careful with other acid products when you use it. Try not to use it with any retinol, won’t make either of them very effective. Avoid mixing with most antioxidants, The Buffet, Copper Peptides. If you really want to use peptides, you should use the toner first and let it soak into your skin for around 10 mins, and then go for the peptides.  Acids:  The Ordinary - AHA 30% + BHA 2% Peeling Solution: it’s very strong, don’t use it alongside with other acids. Avoid mixing with EUK 134, any peptides, and 100% L Ascorbic Acid. After rinsing it off, you can use Niacinamide & zinc, or any of the hyaluronic acid products. The Ordinary - Azelaic Acid Suspension 10%: comes as a cream, which is more stable. Always patch test before putting on your face. Avoid mixing with EUK 134 and Copper Peptides. Ascorbic acid powder or non-copper peptides MIGHT also cause irritations. Except these, this plays well with pretty much everything else.  Glycolic Acid, Lactic Acid, Mandelic Acid, and Salicylic Acid: avoid mixing with other acids, EUK 134, Copper Peptides, and 100% L Ascorbic Acid. Acid and Vitamin C can really sting and burn your skin.  All of the hydrators and oils really play well with other products, no contradictions at all.  The Ordinary - 100% Organic Virgin Sea-Buckthorn Fruit Oiland The Ordinary - 100% Organic Cold Pressed Rose Hip Seed Oilhave high amounts of beneficial properties to them. Pairing with a sunscreen if you want to use them during the day.  The Ordinary - Amino Acids + B5: avoid mixing with other strong acids.  More Molecules: The Ordinary - Alpha Arbutin 2% + HA: this plays well with pretty much everything. Be aware of other antioxidants because it is a water base.  The Ordinary - Caffeine Solution 5% + EGCG: no contradictions. Water based serum.  The Ordinary - Niacinamide 10% + Zinc 1%: avoid mixing with any Vitamin C products from the ordinary  Peptides: The Ordinary - "Buffet" + Copper Peptides 1%: it doesn’t play well with anyone, specifically avoid mixing with acids, Vitamin C, and antioxidants. Same thing for the regular “buffet” even though it is much more stable.  Retinol: The Ordinary - Granactive Retinoid 2% Emulsion: contains water, no antioxidants with it, except for the pine derived pycnogenol, which works very well with it.  Retinol in squalene: oil-based. All of the ordinary’s retinoids play very well with their peptides.  Sunscreen: NO contradictions 🎉🎉 Vitamin C: avoid mixing with EUK 134, other acids, any peptides, and Niacinamide. Great with other vitamin C and sunscreens.  Check the link below to watch more details from Cassandra.  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4fnrqHWLS_U And let me know if you have any questions or thoughts about The Ordinary products. 💖💖💖

Can You Believe A $15 Face Serum Transformed Reese Witherspoon Skin???!!!
Can You Believe A $15 Face Serum Transformed Reese Witherspoon Skin???!!!
Congratulates to Reese Witherspoon won the Emmy Awards as one of the Best Lead Actress in a Drama. Reese Witherspoon's signature fresh skin and classic red lipstick go deep into the hearts of the people. Her makeup artist Kelsey Deenihan shares her fresh skin secret and what really surprised me is the using products that all cost $15 or less! And what's also surprised me is that we can find Kelsey Deenihan Cherie's account!!! 💋Reese Witherspoon's Secret to get a Flawless Skin: THE inkey LIST - Q10 Antioxidant Serum THE inkey LIST - Peptide Moisturizer To give Witherspoon the best possible canvas for makeup, she started by applying The Inkey List's Q10 Antioxidant Serum, a cocktail of antioxidants, peptides, and squalane that smoothes and hydrates skin. Deenihan followed that with the brand's Peptide Moisturizer, which Deenihan says is fast-absorbing. THE inkey LIST - Caffeine Eye Cream THE inkey LIST - Polyglutamic Acid Hydrating Serum To prevent concealer creasing, she applied The Inkey List Caffeine Eye Cream under Witherspoon's eyes before topping off her whole face with Polyglutamic Acid, "the perfect makeup base." Witherspoon looked virtually flawless on the red carpet! The entire routine used for her skincare before makeup costs roughly $55 in total!  Perfect budget, amazing products which show that even to get red carpet-ready skin, don't have to spend an arm and a leg! (Information get from Allure) ❤️My Personal Review: The INKEY List - Peptide Moisturizer: Luckily I tried one of the products that Reese Witherspoon used! I love moisturizers, especially when they’re simple but nourishing. This product is a lightweight, emollient cream that has a bouncy texture that makes it perfect for evening use and suitable for non-oily folks to use in the AM, leaving a silky radiant finish and quenched feeling for the skin. It soaks in beautifully and isn’t greasy at all. I think this is a really nice hydrating moisturizer that can replenish dehydrated dry skin, at a pretty affordable price, in an air-tight pump that keeps the product clean and contamination risk minimal.

Briannaxliv Recommended👍Must Have at SEPHORA❤️ I tried them and found...
The beauty blogger Briannaxliv shares her favorite skin care product that she brought from Sephora! I'm so excited to not only share her love products with you guys but also with my personal review! Hope this information can be helpful to you! Let's see what's her skincare loves!❤️ 👍First Aid Beauty -- KP BUMP ERASER BODY SCRUB 10% AHA $28:  FIRST AID BEAUTY - KP Bump Eraser Body Scrub with 10% AHA Keratosis Pilaris (KP) is a common skin condition that causes dry, rough patches and tiny bumps. First Aid Beauty's fast-acting KP body scrub reveals healthier-looking skin with Glycolic and Lactic Acids at a combined level of 10% to help loosen the skin’s top layer while also decongesting pores with pumice buffing beads, delivering the benefits of a chemical peel and microdermabrasion treatment in one. 💋Briannaxliv's Review: Best for the small bumps on her thighs and arms. She feels this is the best money she has ever spent. You won't be disappointed to try this product. 💕My Review: As what's she feels, this product really works! But for my personal feeling, maybe it is because the bump issue on my arm is not serious, I can see my bump issue has been relieved but this product is not able to eliminate the problem. If you have serious bump issues, this product is definitely worth trying! 👍Youth to the People -- Adaptogen Deep Moisture Cream $58:  YOUTH TO THE PEOPLE - Adaptogen Deep Moisture Cream with Ashwagandha + Reishi A deeply hydrating moisturizer with superior plant extracts and a pro-grade peptide complex formulated for dry, reactive, and sensitive skin. Fragrance-free formula made with an intelligent hydration trio of Squalane, Jojoba + Shea butter for long-lasting deep hydration that won't clog pores. Adaptogenic extract blend helps skin cope with dryness, irritation, redness, and fine lines + wrinkles. 💋Briannaxliv's Review: This product is soooo underrated and is her soulmate moisturizer. Especially for someone who has a combination skin type with rosacea, this product does not only help with the redness but also super hydrating and won't break you out. 💕My Review: I'm surprised that she love this product that much. I got this product when the product first came out, but I only used it for a short time and replaced it... The texture is pretty heavy, which I think is not really good for normal oily skin type. If you have dry skin, you might love it. Also, I really really hate the smell of this product. The smell is hard to describe but is really awful to me.🤢 You might want to smell it first before you buy it. 👍Supergoop! -- 100% Mineral Invincible Setting Powder SPF45 $30: Supergoop! - 100% Mineral Invincible Setting Powder SPF 45 Reapply your SPF with a 100% mineral setting powder that mattifies shine and sets makeup. This sweat-resistant, translucent formula smooths skin’s appearance and reduces shine. 💋Briannaxliv's Review: She loves to use this as an SPF reapplied when she has her makeup on. This product is the mineral base, sweatproof, and will leave a matte finish for your makeup but only have 4 shades. 💕My Review: I love this product soooo much!!! You definitely wanna try it for sure!!! It is super convenient to take it with you and reapply your SPF anytime Just simply brush it on your face, then you will get a matte finish without ruin your makeup and added protection! The oil-control power is really nice, so if you are dry skin, I'm not recommending this to you. Another point I loved was the brush! The brush is replaceable and you can take it off to wash it clean when you feel use it too long that it might have bacteria on it. I feel really safe to take it with me! Love it! Love it! Love!👍👍👍 ❤️Hope you guys like it❤️
