My favorite skin care products!
I am obsessed with the Milk makeup cleanser and moisturizer! I have been using them since may! Both products are vegan. The cleanser is perfect for someone like me with normal to dry skin. It doesn’t have a fragrance at all. It is kind of thick but I love that ! Some cleansers I have used in the past would leave my skin feeling weird and dry. I would also end up breaking out shortly after using other cleansers. My face feels soft and clean after using the milk vegan cleanser. I haven’t experienced and breakouts after using it. The moisturizer really helps keep my dry skin hydrated ! It is a little on the thicker side but it feels amazing on the skin. If you have oily skin I recommend only using it at night.

She is THICK!
Do you like your moisturizer thick? If so, you’ll love this vegan beauty by Milk Makeup. I’ve sampled this twice now, able to use it for up to two weeks. Although I typically like to use a product for a good four weeks, I feel I am able to give an adequate review. As I stated, Milk MAKEUP - Vegan Milk Moisturizer is THICK! It’s recommended for normal to dry skin and has a 4.5 ⭐️ review on Sephora as well as good reviews on various social media platforms. One of my favorites about this cream is it is fragrance free!!! 👏 I HAVE NORMAL TO DRY SKIN. LEANING MORE TO DRY AND A BIT SENSITIVE THIS WINTER ❄️ I found I needed about a thumbnail size to cover my face and it spread and sank into my skin quite easily. I did not find it to leave any residue at all. I do believe if you have oily skin this one is going to be a bit too much for you and you will not like the texture or feeling on your skin. My face felt completely hydrated immediately after using. Hours later, my skin still felt nourished! For me this would definitely be a moisturizer I would purchase. It’s a great option during the winter months or I could use it in the summer as a moisturizing sleeping mask. I only took one ⭐️ away as it cannot be used by every skin type and if it is in a bottle as it is, I wish they had given a spoon or spatula as it is unhygienic to use your fingers to scoop out product. $38 for 1.7 oz ——- Do you use any Milk Makeup Products? I picked up the Milk MAKEUP - Day + Night Serum and Mask Face Set and I have a Milk MAKEUP - Lip + Cheek Milk MAKEUP - KUSH High Volume Mascara and Milk MAKEUP - Vegan Milk Cleanser I LOVE the Milk Cleanser (a gift from Cherie) I’ve reviewed before and will do and updated review. I also need to do a review on all the others. I’m not a big fan of the skincare products besides the Cleanser and Moisturizer. I felt the others didn’t do much for me. I bit too gimeky and didn’t pack enough punch to see results. —— ❤️🍒
Milk Makeup Vegan Milk Cleanser
Hello Cherie Beauty Lovers! Today is the day that the truth is coming out! This Specific Cleanser by Milk Makeup is absolute horrid, and very terrible to say the least. The Vegan Milk Cleanser is by far the worst cleanser that has been tried on my skin. Coming from a Oily in summer/ Combination in Winter and Sensitive skin type. This very cleanser has made me dry like the Sahara Desert, not only that but it has given me red bumps every single time I have ever use this. I received this product in the Cherie box contest and I do appreciate Cherie company sending me this but this really isn’t suiting my skin and has not resulted in my favor. But PLEASE DO ME A FAVOR, PLEASE DO NOT WASTE YOUR HARD WORKED EARNED MONEY ON THIS CRAPPY PRODUCT.

Good skn w/ some frizzy hair, how’s Quarantini?
Basically me everyday wash routine morning and night is Step 1: Cleanse with average Hydrating cleanser (the one that doesn’t foam) *MAKE SURE YOURE CLEANSER YOUR SKN FOR 60 SECS LADIES/GENTS) We want all that dirt and debris off ur skin. Step 2: I used persa gel which is 10% benzoyl peroxide to fight acne. I use it morning and night, but make sure in the morning to really use a hydrating moisturizer since it can dry out the skin. Step 3: MOISTUREEEEEEEE with whatever works for your skin sometimes i use two moisturizers idk I’m weird like that 🤣🤣 Last but not least in the morning I use sunscreen ALWAYS WEAR YA SUNSCREEN LADIES/GENTS I can’t stress this enough BTW: your skincare routine does not have to include 30 different products, I’ll give you guys a break down if your new or just want some insight on a super easy and effective routine without spending 30 mins in the bathroom. But hey I understand the skincare routine is a form of relaxation sis I’m not mad at ya. Do ya thang ! I’m about to go steam my face rn brb 💖💖💖💖💖💖💖💖💖💖💖💖💖💖💖💖💖💖💖💖💖💖💖💖💖💖💖💖💖💖💖💖💖💖💖💖💖💖💖💖💖💖💖💖💖💖💖💖
Milk MAKEUP - Vegan Milk Moisturizer I just finished my mini milk makeup moisturizer that i got from marshalls for 4.99 instead of paying $18 or $15 at sephora First of all ive never finished entire product on my life lol im always curious to try another product if i dont like it but this one is great! This is a creamy THICC moisturizer that really nourishes your skin! I love it doesnt have fragrance but theres a lil bit scent idk if its because of the ingredients. Packaging is cool too!
Perfect travel kit from Youth to the People
Girl you KNOW I love a good skincare set. Especially one that lets me try new products (with a budget price) OR allows me to have convenient travel sizes when I travel. This kit (the Youth Mini Duo YOUTH TO THE PEOPLE - Cleanser + Cream Youth Duo Mini ) from Youth to the People has been available on YTTP’s website for over 2 years! It contains mini sizes of their cleanser & their lightweight moisture cream. I had previously tried their cleanser, which I LOVE (see below) but I hadn’t tried their moisture cream so I was excited to purchase this set! For $20 (this doesn’t have an advertised “value of”) I think this is a great deal! Plus their packaging is able to be recycled and up cycled! Here are my thoughts on each individual product: Cleanser: YOUTH TO THE PEOPLE - Superfood Antioxidant Cleanser 5/5 Likes: this cleanser is so hydrating omg. It has a very slight lather from its thick gel consistency and washes away for a squeaky clean finish (similar to bar soap) but it doesn’t feel drying at all. It is a great basic cleanser that doesn’t upset sensitive skin! Dislikes: WOW this smells very heavily of kale! Very earthy. I dislike that it doesn’t have a pump but it is a small inconvenience. Moisture cream: YOUTH TO THE PEOPLE - Superfood Air-Whip Moisture Cream 5/5 Likes: this cream...omg. It is such a UNIQUE experience. The cream itself is very light and airy, absorbing into the skin so fast! It did leave a somewhat matte appearance to my skin but no dry feeling. In fact, my skin felt EERILY soft. I was like? What? This is MY SKIN? Not a baby’s butt? Plus I always get wary of products with natural ingredients because they often set off my sensitive skin. Well, not this baby! Dislikes: again, the scent is VERY herbaceous + earthy. It doesn’t linger for long but wow. It does not smell pleasant. Have you tried anything from Youth to the People?

*I have used the two products as my night routine. DRUNK ELEPHANT - Protini Polypeptide Cream After using this moisturizer a couple times, I’m a little underwhelmed. It’s lightweight and fragrance-free which I love, but it’s more gelly than creamy and doesn’t leave my skin as moisturized as one would expect from such a high end brand. DRUNK ELEPHANT - Slaai Makeup-Melting Butter Cleanser This cleanser on the other hand is BOMB. It’s smoooth, like butter😂 It leaves my skin so soft and it rinses well. I just massage it onto my skin while it’s dry and rinse in the shower. I prefer using it with a scrub for the best exfoliating experience.

YOUTH TO THE PEOPLE - Superfood Antioxidant Cleanser I was looking for a gentle cleanser and bought this sample-sized bottle after hearing Hyram rave about this product. I also have a friend with oily skin who loves this cleanser. Texture - the texture is the same consistency as a shampoo or liquid soap, and becomes a foamy lather when you rub it onto your face. Scent - I actually quite enjoyed the scent of this product. It does not contain synthetic fragrance, but it smells like a green smoothie. Application - YTTP packages their products in glass bottles and jars, which I appreciate from a sustainability standpoint. But it does make this product a little risky to use if you wash your face in the shower. I accidentally dropped my bottle in the shower once—it didn’t shatter, but it chipped a piece of enamel off of my bathtub 😐 Other than that, the product was easy to pour out of the bottle. Results - I wasn’t a huge fan of this product. It didn’t cause any breakouts or irritation, but every time after I used it, my face would feel tight and dry, and I felt like I would have to immediately moisturize. I think it was too harsh for my sensitive skin, but people with oily or more resilient skin might like this. Would not repurchase for myself, I ended up finishing this product off as a body wash 🤷🏻♀️ YOUTH TO THE PEOPLE - Adaptogen Deep Moisture Cream with Ashwagandha + Reishi I received this mini jar as a sample in one of my Sephora orders. Texture - the texture is a slightly whipped cream. It reminds me of Cool Whip in the tub, but slightly thicker in consistency. Scent - like the cleanser, this also does not have synthetic fragrance, but I’m not sure how to describe the scent? It kind of smelled like flour mixed with baby powder to me, but it wasn’t too overpowering or obvious. Application - this comes in a glass jar. Results - I felt very neutral about this product. I saw that some people experienced irritation due to sensitivity to the mushrooms in this product, but I didn’t experience any. It moisturized my face fine, but felt no different than an average drugstore moisturizing cream. Given this and the fact that the price for the full-sized jar is rather high, I would not repurchase. If you end up trying this product out, I suggest patch testing to be sure that you don’t have a sensitivity to the mushrooms. Hope this helps! I know Hyram and a lot of other people love this brand, and I appreciate their commitment to sustainability. However, I felt pretty meh about both of these products and am not super interested in anything else from them at this point in time.
YOUTH TO THE PEOPLE-Adaptogen Deep Moisture Cream with Ashwagandha + Reishi
Kiehl’s Calendula Deep Cleansing Foam Facial Wash I don’t like splurging on a face wash because I think anything can do the job of cleansing your face. But since I have sensitive skin, I have to consider that I should get something that won’t cause any inflammation or redness on my skin, but still cleans it. I also have a dry combination skin type so the cleanser has to take off my makeup and all the grime but it can’t dehydrate my skin at the same time. I know, it’s pretty complicated but I find it therapeutic to look through skin care products and experiment with various brands. I have been using Kiehl’s for quite some time now. I discovered the brand and all its amazing products in our local Kiehl’s shop. I love this Calendula line cause all the products in it are so calming and gentle on sensitive skin, plus they’re hydrating as well. This face wash does the job of cleaning my face (after a good micellar water) and one pump is enough to foam my whole face. I guess it’s moderately pricey for a facial wash but not extremely expensive, so it’s all good. I like to use it day and night as a second cleanse, then I’ll move on to a toner if I was wearing heavy makeup (which is rare), essence, serum, rich moisturizer, eye cream, and sunscreen if it’s daytime. This routine, and specifically this face wash, works so well for my skin. I recommend it to someone who’s looking for a gentle facial wash that foams and doesn’t strip off the face with natural oils. Kiehl’s Calendula Herbal Extract Toner This is one of my holy grail products. It’s so gentle and hydrating on my skin. I’ve been using this product for at least 3 years now, and never did it disappoint me even once. I have a sensitive dry combination skin, so I need products that are hydrating and gentle at the same time. Kiehl’s Calendula range is one of my favourite lines.
A Simple Morning Routine with a View 🏙
Since moving to Honolulu, the name of the game has been hydration! Despite what you would think about tropical climates, it’s not unusual for hot and humid weather to dry you out with UV rays and dehydration. So I’ve really whittled down my morning routine to 3 steps (and a coffee, of course!) CLEANSE: MARIO BADESCU - Enzyme Cleansing Gel I’ve been using this cleanser every morning for the last month and I saw results after the first wash! It’s a super gentle non-foaming cleanser claims to gently buff away oil and impurities while papaya and grapefruit extracts brighten. My skin actually glows after cleansing with this! It’s sulfate, pthalate and paraben free, making it the perfect morning cleanser for my dry sensitive babes! Highly recommend this as a staple on your shelf. TONE: fresh - Rose Deep Hydration Toner I just bought this toner, but I am loving it so far! Most toners leave my skin feeling tight and itchy and this does none of that! It’s gentle and my skin feels nice and soft and smooth when I use it, plus it smells amazing! Rose is one of the few scents that doesn’t irritate my allergies, so I’m definitely going to make it a regular. HYDRATE: Neutrogena - Neutrogena Hydroboost Water Gel Moisturizer This moisturizer has lived on my shelf since I was 16 years old and I don’t plan on getting rid of it any time soon. Though I admit it falls by the wayside sometimes, it’s tried-and-true for me and when i need a reset I always go back to it. It’s so lightweight and soothing, the product sinks right into my skin with zero residue and leaves behind a smooth, soft surface. It’s perfect when my face is feeling just a little dry and needs a mid day refresh. I usually have to put a layer on, wait 5 min, and apply a second time to my cheeks because the formula is so lightweight and I need just a little more hydration. But for only $15 it’s well worth it!
MARIO BADESCU-Enzyme Cleansing Gel
Love me some rosen skincare ! The face wash is probably my favorite of the three — super gentle and natural feeling. My skin feels soft after use without any tightness or feeling like there’s a film on my skin. The moisturizer is really pretty and has mica in it to give you that ~luminous~ glow ✨ I love how moisturizing the toner is and it keeps my oiliness at bay!
