🥰Face Serum Amps Up Your Skincare Routine
Using serum is a crucial step to amp up your skincare routine, and choosing the right serum based on different skin types and skincare concerns is not that easy🤩. There has been lots of Cherie users in our community recommodating serum of different brands, and we truly appreciate their effort to make these super useful comments🥰. @SkinShareSkinCare “hey!! so I have two posts on my morning and nighttime routine! now for my morning routine i use the Derma-E Vitamin C Concentration Serum for brightening the face. I only use that one in the morning ( definitely use sunscreen after putting it on because your skin becomes very sensitive to the sun!). Now for my nighttime routine (post above) I use the AHA + BHA chemical solution and Niacinamide + zinc serum. For the chemical peel, use only once a week for a max of 10 mins! I also use the chemical peel in an alternative night to the glycolic acid because they both are exfoliating formulas. As for the Niacinamide + Zinc serum, you can use this morning and night, but i just apply on at night since i use a Vitamin C in the morning! but the Niacinamide + Zinc is a great serum to use both morning and night since it helps reduce pores size, helps with redness and has great ingredients for your face! hope this helps! i’d be happy to answer more questions!” @Skinsitive “Augmenting the skin barrier is one of the most effective way to encourage the skin to retain moisture. Ceramides, omega fatty acids, and peptides all help a lot. I love the Paula’s Choice Omega+ Complex Serum (fatty acids + ceramides) and Hyaluronic Acid Booster (actual hyaluronic acid + ceramides) for keeping my skin hydrated when my eczema flares!” @hannahissad “I have been using the Ayele &Co. Sunflower Sweets Serum for years now as a last step in my nighttime routine after I moisturize. It has jojoba, tea tree, and vitamin e oil as it’s key ingredients so it’s great for oily and acne prone skin. I like using a face oil at night as a way to seal in the moisture. In the winter I will add jojoba oil to my moisturizer for more hydration. I’ve also used rosehip oil to help with acne and scarring.” For other Cherie members, feel free to comment below and talk about your choice of serum. I'd love to hear your reviews of the products!

Double Duty Brightener & Exfoliator Face & Body
This is by far the best double duty body and face skin brightener and exfoliator I’ve ever used. I get KP on the backs of my arms and breakout on my booty that left hyperpigmentation. I had tried a bunch of products that were created for those problems and wasn’t getting results. Found this in the Bioelements line which is one I trust and love so figured I’d give it a go. Soooo glad I did!! Within two weeks I was looking so much better. Two months later I’m a new woman. 🎉 Although it was created for the face to work on lines wrinkles and even skin shrink pores etc it works great on the thicker skin of the body to: • Lighten pigment marks and scars fast💨 • Smooth bumpy skin like KP on the arms & legs • Help heal body acne like back, booty, chest, etc • Reduces in grown hairs (not on private areas!!!) • Smooths fine lines and wrinkles • Evens skin tone, texture • Pores size appears smaller 🙌 It’s a gel consistency and just drops into the skin. Super easy to use. Good for all skin types. If you’re sensitive and using it on your face I’d be careful. It has glycolic 🧪 and fruit acids🍍 so high tech and natural ingredients combined for a real 1+2 punch. It may seem mellow as you’re using it, but I got some color on my chest one day forgetting that it will make you sun ☀️ sensitive so extra SPF 🏖 or cover up while using it. I use it as a spot treatment just on the areas that need it every other day after the shower 🚿 while my skin is still 🧖♀️ steamy and warm. Tip - be sure to rinse your fingers off after applying. I was getting dry finger tips until I did that. Also be sure to wait 15min before putting clothes on. I did change the color of a shirt one time. 😂 #cheriecreator bioelements - Quick Refiner
Are you applying Hyaluronic Acid Serum right?
What is hyaluronic acid ? It’s a sugar molecule our own bodies produce. It holds/retains water (1000xs it’s size) and that gives it a category as a humectant. Its found over your entire body but most abundant in your eyes. The older you get (like anything else) the less you make. (which is why dry eyes seem to bother a lot of people as they age). What does it do for your skin? 💦 Keep any skin type HYDRATED (yes you’re acne prone, rosacea, sensitive skin is safe) 💦Helps diminish FINE LINES & WRINKLES 💦Give skin a SOFTER FEEL How you are supposed to use it! Hyaluronic acid should be applied to DAMP skin. Why? Because imagine putting a humectant (which holds water) on your DRY SKIN (seems redundant). I apply my hyaluronic acid as my first serum (works from lighted to heaviest when applying skin care). I use a spray bottle if I apply at night (due to my routine) and just use my essence (for extra moisture) during the day. The Ordinary - Hyaluronic Acid 2% + B5 is good because of its minimal amount of ingredients. It’s slightly sticky but it does hydrate my skin.

Looking like Stephen King’s “Carrie” 🩸
This product has A LOT of hype, with good reason though. I have seriously sensitive skin, apple cider vinegar burns my skin, witch hazel leaves me dry and red, african black soap gave me a sulfur burn, I get burns so easily its like a second nature 🙃 Naturally, I was hesitant and a bit afraid to try this product, thinking that it would burn and leave my face super red. 😬 However, it didn’t! I was extremely (pleasantly) surprised that when I slathered it all over my face I only felt a tiny bit of a tingling sensation, but not burning at all. Overall, my skin has seen a huge improvement over the two weeks I have been using it and I plan to continue to use it. 🙌🏻❤️❤️ TUE / SAT in the PM for 10 mins ONLY on DRY face. My skin is brighter, more even, I have less blemishes and my skin is becoming more hydrated with the other products I’m using as well. Do I like it? YESSS! I’m about two weeks into using it (twice weekly) and I have noticed so much improvement in my skin texture and my acne. I’m not using any acne medication right now and my skin is GLOWING. I’m beyond excited to see how my skin looks after two weeks more. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ Price? The price is pretty cheap, its too good to pass up on ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ Recommended for? I would recommend this for all skin types except super sensitive skin, its worth giving it a try, but you have to be super careful not to hurt your skin. Its very important to do a patch test first to make sure your skin is going to be okay and to FOLLOW THE DIRECTIONS EXACTLY. Do NOT exceed 10 mins and do NOT use on a wet face. Overall thoughts? Honestly, I think this is a hyped product worth the hype. It has seriously helped my sensitive / acne-prone skin and I actually look forward to using it every TUE and SAT. I normally don’t like acids, but this is a great product with visible results. Just give it some time to work and follow the directions to protect your skin from damage. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ Ingredients: Glycolic Acid, Aqua (Water), Aloe Barbadensis Leaf Water, Sodium Hydroxide, Daucus Carota Sativa Extract, Propanediol, Cocamidopropyl Dimethylamine, Salicylic Acid, Potassium Citrate, Lactic Acid, Tartaric Acid, Citric Acid, Panthenol, Sodium Hyaluronate Crosspolymer, Tasmannia Lanceolata Fruit/Leaf Extract, Glycerin, Pentylene Glycol, Xanthan Gum, Polysorbate 20, Trisodium Ethylenediamine Disuccinate, Potassium Sorbate, Sodium Benzoate, Ethylhexylglycerin, 1,2-Hexanediol, Caprylyl Glycol.

👃 Skin Concern: Pores 👃
My skin type is typically combo oily, but lately has been drier to the temperature fluctuations here in TX. My skin concern is the current dryness/dehydration I’m experiencing due to the weather, acne scars along the sides of my cheeks and pores along my cheeks and nose. . I was sent this product from Good Molecules to help with my acne and pores. The purpose of this product is to promote smooth, even skin and minimize the appearance of pores. It target pores, strengthens the skin barrier, and layers well under other skincare and makeup. . I’ve been using this serum for about a month now and have seen an improvement in my pores. They aren’t as dark/noticeable anymore! In the past week or so, my hormonal acne has flared up but that’s normal for me. Random breakouts that I would get haven’t been appearing as often. The pores along my cheeks and nose have also become not as noticeable. Usually products that claim to help prevent breakouts and targets pores usually dry my skin out and make it flake, but that hasn’t happened while using this serum. My face feels hydrated and not dry at all, plus it doesn’t leave behind a sticky feeling. The serum can be a little difficult to get out of the jar since it is thick and hard to pick up the dropper, but that doesn’t bother me. The scars on my cheeks have also been reduced and not as noticeable, giving my skin tone a more even and brighter look. I use it twice a day on my face, neck, and chest using about 2-3 drops for my face and 1-2 drops for my neck/chest area. I use my toner and then apply this and let it sit for a few minutes to make sure it’s absorbed, then go in with moisturizer. I really enjoy this product because it specifically target brightens the skin and helps improve the look of large pores, blemishes, and uneven skin tone and fullness.
GOOD MOLECULES-Niacinamide Serum
Let's talk Rosacea This is something I've struggled with for some time and I'm sure many of you do also. It results in redness, pimples, swelling, and small, superficial dilated blood vessels, nice. Makeup does quite a good job of covering it, but I'm pretty self-conscious of it when I'm makeup free, at the gym or on holiday etc. Certain things flare it up for me, dairy, sun exposure, vigorous exercise and alcohol, all of which I kinda love 😂 So to try and battle the redness, I've done my research and settled on two key products. Azelaic Acid from The Ordinary and the ZIIP beauty Nanocurrent Device are my Rosacea busting heros. Azelaic Acid is an antibacterial ingredient which gently exfoliates skin to prevent the build-up that clogs pores and causes both blemishes and dull skin. The Pigmentation Treatment on my ZIIP, helps to suppress overactive melanin production and evens out tone.

I ain’t mad, just disappointed 😔
Disclaimer!! I have combination- more oily, sensitive and acne prone skin. What may have worked for me, may not for you! I suffer from hyperpigmentation and acne scarring so I’ve been researching a while on some vitamin C serums I should be trialing and this is one that Susan Yara recommended. I’ve heard good things about Ole Henrickson brand and had some high expectations for this serum but it’s honestly just a let down for me personally. I enjoyed the consistency of it- is light and gel-like texture, but it has a very strong citrus smell which can be a real turn off. I tried to give this serum a chance and trialed it for nearly a month but it’s honestly just made my breakouts worse and more frequent and also gave me more textured skin. It’s a no from me 👎 OLE HENRIKSEN - Truth Serum
