NIGHT TIME ROUTINE FOR SKIN ✨ #CheriePartner
If it’s anything I love it’s my skincare! I try to keep my routines as simple as possible and I love to try new things! I started using The Ordinary products about 3-4 months ago and I love them! Most of my products are from them because they are cheap and good quality. I’ve done a review before on some of their products and thoughts and techniques have definitely changed! My routine is done in 5 Steps: ✨Step 1: The peel! The Ordinary - AHA 30% + BHA 2% Peeling Solution I absolutely love this peel from The Ordinary! It has been helping with my hyperpigmentation and keeping my skin glowing. IMPORTANT INFO: Pls Only use this peel once a week at most and also only do at night never during times you’ll be exposed to sunlight. You don’t want your skin to burn or have an awful reaction. This is super important because it is an acid. ✨Step 2: Toner The Ordinary - Glycolic Acid 7% Toning Solution Normally I will not use my Glycolic toner and Peel the same night but I haven’t exfoliated in a while and that toner always gives me that extra help! I only use this toner at night. Not recommended for day time usage. ✨Step 3: Trader Joe’s Green Tea Extract Gel Moisturizer TRADER JOE'S - Ultra Hydrating Gel Moisturizer with Aloe & Green Tea Extracts I love this moisturizer! I usually alternate between that and the neutrogena hydro- boost. Both great moisturizer. I do love to use The Trader Joe’s moisturizer at night because it really helps my face to not dry out overnight! ✨Step 4: The Ordinary Hyaluronic Acid The Ordinary - Hyaluronic Acid 2% + B5 THIS IS MY HOLY GRAIL PRODUCT! I love it! It really helps keep my face hydrated! I usually mix this with my moisturizer. I use this Acid Night and Day because it keeps me looking dewy and fresh! My skin has never been happier! ✨Step 5: Squalene Oil The Ordinary - 100% Plant-Derived Squalane Naturally my skin hates oil with a passion! But I knew I needed something to lock in all this hydration and I found my heart set on squalene oil. It’s super light and really locks in all the moisture on my skin! Now I only use two drops. Nothing more nothing less. For my skin anything more than two drops makes it freak out. We’ve discovered a happy medium with two lol. If you have skin like mine and want to incorporate oil pls use sparingly! That’s all for my night time routine 🌙 PRO TIP: These cute little headbands are my favorite thing to use when doing skin care! It keeps your hair out of your face and pulled back! 10/10 would recommend! I got my little piglet ears from The Body Shop for like 3 bucks! What’s your fav Night time product for your skin? Let me know! BESOS 😘

DHC-Deep Cleansing Oil
Best & Worst⁉⁉ My Personal Ranking of 4 Hyped B5 Products...
Vitamin B5 helps keep skin soft, smooth and healthy. It has an anti-inflammatory effect that can help stimulate your skin's healing processes. I have combo skin and I've tried 4 hyped B5 products. Here is my personal ranking of them: 1⃣LA ROCHE-POSAY Baume B5 2⃣SKINCEUTICALS Hydrating B5 Gel 3⃣The Ordinary B5 4⃣LA ROCHE-POSAY Serum B5 The Ordinary - Hyaluronic Acid 2% + B5 $6.8 for 30ml This is an amazing product at an inciting price tag. You really can't go wrong with $6.00 for this goodness. It has a sticky consistency with no scent. When you rub it into your skin, it suds up a bit. After a moment it seeps into the skin. Another thing to note is that it peeled under my sunscreen and makeup products, so I just used it in the evening. LA ROCHE-POSAY - Hyalu B5 Pure Hyaluronic Acid Face Serum $30 for 30ml The one major flaw in this product is the fragrance. It is a heavily perfumed scent that takes a long time to disappear and its not suitable for sensitive skin. The texture is sticky but it didn't ball up on my face. It seemed to absorb slowly, which means I had to wait along time to apply moisturizer over top. It may have worked to leave my skin hydrated but I will not repurchase it for the texture and fragrance. SKINCEUTICALS - Hydrating B5 Gel $83 for 30ml The price is kinda steep but you get what you pay for! The texture is silky and a little goes a long way. And it didn't ball up at all. It keeps the skin hydrated and plump. Although the product is pricey, it lasts for a long time and does the job, thus it is worth it. LA ROCHE-POSAY - Cicaplast Baume B5 for Dry Skin Irritations $15 for 40ml This is my holy grail irritated skin rescue product! When I suffered from sensitive skin conditions or went too hard on the retinol, it works well to speed up the skin recovery process and moisturize dry patches. My skin even gets sting when I apply La mer, but this balum helps so much to reduce the irritation and soothe the healing skin. I HIGHLY recommend for any irritated skin that needs quick healing. If you have any questions or suggestions hmu 😘💖‼️

GLOW RECIPE-Watermelon + AHA Glow Sleeping Mask
Got this dupe for LAMER!!!
1. skinceuticals A.G.E. Interrupter ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ I am so glad this was reccomend to me after a hydrafacial. My skin went from oily to dry and flaky the past couple of years. The years of sun exposure certainly have made numerous line appearances especially on my forehead and eye areas. The first time I used it my skin soaked this in. It's a thick cream and perhaps I went a bit crazy with it at first and if you oversupply you will have some residue left. ( the only thing I dont like). After a few weeks of continuous use I started to see a difference. My skin is hydrated and firmer and it is no longer red and flaky. This product is thick in consistency, but spreads nicely and wears well under makeup. It is very moisturizing and makes my skin feel smooth. A little goes a long way. I have seen a reduction in fine lines and sagging. The directions say this product is a treatment and to put moisturizer on top of this product. I find that my skin feels moisturized without having to put another layer on. Great for dry skin. 2. LAMER the moisturizing soft cream ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ I really thought this cream was a hype. I have damaged skin and large pores. I finally broke down and tried this after hearing about it non-stop. My biggest lesson for how to moisturize my sensitive, acne-prone combination skin, was to pat a very small amount of moisturizer on (no-matter the brand) on my face rather than spread it around like I would body lotion. That would require putting on an excessive amount and lead to oiliness, shine, and almost certainly breakouts. With that knowledge I have been using this a week, applying the smallest amount and patting it sparingly on my skin. Wow....every time I pass a mirror I stop in awe to look at my skin. It is not just the fact that it is moisturized and baby smooth; it has this healthy sheen - the kind I would see on others but never myself. It's amazing!!!! Sometimes I combine an even tinier amount with a drop of my Cerave face moisturizer to save money or if my face feels like it needs less heavy, and that is also giving me excellent results. IT IS NOT A HYPE. The people who say it is too greasy or likely applying it incorrectly for their skin and need to use less. In a word, both of these two products are super good for me. But considering the price, I highly recommend the first one, which almost has the same effect as LAMER.
