Skincare with Clean Ingredients 💚

I have been a Drunk Elephant 🐘 stan now for quite some time. I’ve always had fairly clear skin, but had dark spots, acne scars from my teenage years, large pores and dull skin. I have heard great things about DE and been wanting it for quite some time, but the price tag always turned me off. Spending that much money on skincare made me want to throw up, but then I thought I’d make the investment since I buy high end make up products. If I can spend that money on makeup why not skincare? I have severely dry skin and suffer from eczema. If I don’t moisturize properly, I will get dry patches and break out. I bought the DE littles as a starting kit and saw a drastic difference in two weeks. My skin was bright, my pores appeared to have shrunk, my acne scars were a lot lighter. I was pretty shocked and invested in full size products. I never looked back since. What I also love about DE is the clean ingredients. The brand’s philosophy is to produce skincare ingredients without toxins, sensitized and irrititants such as essential oils. They pay close attention to PH levels as well. They consistently formulate their products for low-hazard ingredients. On top of that, DE is cruelty free, does not contain dyes or fragrances and is formulated without silicons, chemical screens and SLS which makes it eco-friendly. The star of the show is the C-Firma Vitamin C Day Serum. This has 15% L-Ascorbic acid and Ferulic acid along pumpkin ferment and pomegranate extract. DE claims to firm and brighten the skin while minimizing the signs of aging as well as minimizing the size of your pores. This feels a little tacky and not too liquidy so I recommend mixing it with B-Hydra serum for a creamier consistency. B-Hydra is also a good mix especially if you have severely dry skin like me because it is a hydrating serum. DE products are committed to fragrance free products, but I do think the smell of the C-Firma is a little unpleasant, but I would rather have that glycolic scent rather than essential oils that may be harmful to the skin. The scent is very metallic and it lingers around. B-Hydra has no smell to it which I prefer. Vitamin C makes your skin sensitive so don’t forget to apply SPF! DRUNK ELEPHANT - C-Firma Vitamin C Day Serum
DRUNK ELEPHANT - B-Hydra Intensive Hydration Serum
Overall, I am happy that a skin care product that works wonders for my skin is also environmentally conscious and has clean ingredients. I get that it is a bit pricy, but I think it worth it. DE is always having bundles and kits that makes it worth it. For instance, this photo above is from their new “firmy” kit. It is 88 USD and the set contains a full size C-Firma and sample sizes of Protini Cream, B-Hydra Serum, D-Bronzi Sunshine drops and Umbra Tint sunscreen. I think that is so worth it considering the C-Firma itself is $80! What is your favorite clean skin care products? Francesca 💋 #CheriePartner

Products Getting Me Through Winter! ❄
Since I can remember I've had oily to combination skin, until this winter. It's been a rough one! My skin has been SO dry, and it's hard to keep up with it. Especially since I'm prone to acne and clogged pores, so I can't use a lot of heavy creams and pore clogging products. These I wouldn't be able to live without this winter! COSRX - Advanced Snail 96 Mucin Power Essence 🐌 I love this essence! This is a Korean product (Korean skin care will always be a hit). And it's made with Snail Mucin, weird right? This contains 96% snail mucin, which has incredible healing and antimicrobial properties. It promotes collagen production and aids in skin regeneration. And it's a top pick for dry skin types because of its amazing ability to hydrate. This has a jelly-like texture and I find myself ALWAYS reaching for this. Most of the claimed benefits do come with time. Another product I'm loving is the DRUNK ELEPHANT - B-Hydra Intensive Hydration Serum 💧This is a serum that came in a DE kit and I really want the full size! This seriously feels like a cold drink of water for your skin. It's lightweight and spreads nicely. It not only has Sodium Hyaluronate, (which is like hyarulonic Acid on steroids) but also Pineapple Ceramide and provitamin B5, an amazing humectant. As well as a lentil/apple/watermelon complex. It's not crazy different from other Hyarulonic Acid serums I've tried, but it's great! I finally got to try the cult favorite DRUNK ELEPHANT - Protini Polypeptide Cream . And wow I'm glad I did! This cream does have a few possible pore clogging ingredients so I was afraid to use it, but It's helped my dryness so much! It feels sooo moisturizing and soothing. I love that this is a protein moisturizer that has peptides, growth factors, amino acids, and pygmy waterlily to improve your overall skin health. This is an amazing anti-aging and skin strengthening moisturizer. I love using this it's a great experience. I already reviewed this incredible product, the Glossier. - Balm Dotcom 👄 It's become a staple lip balm for me. It's extremely hydrating and packed with antioxidants and natural emollients. It has Castor Oil, Beeswax, and Lanolin to seal in moisture. It leaves my lips looking sooo hydrated and smooth. It's THE perfect lip balm and I am obsessed.

Is C Firma Really That Bad?! 🧡😒
I just wanna preface this that a good vitamin C is too hard to find in a world with so many different beauty products!! Okay so I think Cherie has a really bad vibe when it comes to this product... yeah it kinda smells like bacon and it sticky AF but man it’s a great product! So a couple of great things about this product: This product lasted me over 8 months, and I used it EVERYDAY I saw my dark spots get a whole lot better My skin felt rejuvenated every time after using this The packaging is great for preserving the product Some meh aspects about the product: Smells like bacon The product ended up leaking Sticky AF I probably won’t repurchase this... but I’m glad I got to try it! Don’t think I’d recommend it though.

THE BEST MOISTURIZERS I HAVE EVER BOUGHT
These are my HOLY GRAIL moisturizers. I spent so much time looking for the perfect moisturizers, and I have arrived! 🤩 And everyone could benefit from any of these. I'm a huge believer in that even if you don't have "sensitive skin" it's so important to use moisturizers with non-irritating, and barrier protecting ingredients, that won't clog pores or cause breakouts. I am super prone to clogged pores, fungal acne, and breakouts, and I am extremely picky about my moisturizers. I only use ones that don't clog pores! For my oily skin babies, the #La Roche-Posay - TOLERIANE FLUIDE OIL FREE MOISTURIZER[products]#[FiveStars] is amazing! In the winter I found it to be not moisturizing enough, but in the summer it was perfect for my combo skin. There is no chance this moisturizer will clog pores or irritate breakouts. It's so lightweight and wears great under makeup. It's also oil, essential oil, and fragrance free. I do find this a bit overpriced, especially since I went through it pretty fast. It's the most expensive out of the three of these, being about $30. Some say this is purely an oily skin moisturizer, but I think anyone can benefit from the Benton - Aloe Propolis Soothing Gel I love using this especially after a chemical peel or when my skin is irritated. It's extremely calming and redness relieving. I find it to be both moisturizing and hydrating, especially when I lock it all in with my vanicream moistuizer which I will mention next! This gel is the only moisturizer I use on my forehead because it's AMAZING for FUNGAL ACNE. It has antibacterial properties and doesn't promote growth in fungal acne. It's smoothed down my forehead so much, and it's only like $15! Now let me tell you about the #Vanicream - Vanicream Daily Facial Moisturizer [products]#[FiveStars] . This is the BEST moisturizer I've ever owned in MY LIFE. Even though I don't have super oily skin, I still crave a deeply moisturizing moisturizer with ceramides and humectants. But most of them out there aren't suitable for acne prone skin. So for those of ya'll with DRY, ACNE-PRONE skin, you will LOVE this. Same with aging skin, sensitive skin...if you have SKIN you will love this. This moisturizer has squalene, Glycerin, and 5 key ceramides, and it's $14.99! And it's guaranteed NO reaction or NO sensitivity, which I love. I picked this up after I was sick of using the DRUNK ELEPHANT - Protini Polypeptide Cream and found that it was breaking me out, and wasn't moisturizing enough. It has about the same texture, but the vanicream is less gel-like. BUT with the added antiaging and peptide/ceramide benefits, you could say this was a dupe for the DE one...just better!

Oily Skin Glow Up ✨
Oily Skin Glow Up ✨
I know usually when you have oily skin the last thing you want to do is have a glowy complexion. Usually it’s matte everything. Mayttifying Toner. Matte primer. Matte foundation. But there are the occasional times I like a little bit of glow to my skincare. I believe there is a line between oily and glowing and you can achieve it with the right products. I, personally, have oily acne prone skin. When I want a little bit more of a glow I go with this routine: 1.) Cleanse - GEORGETTE KLINGER - Vitamin C Cleansing Gel Gel cleansers are amazing for oily skin! You’re going to get the deep cleanse you need without stripping your skin. I like the fact this one has vitamin C included which is going to help give your skin a boost to brighten a dull complexion. 2.) Treat - Murad - Vitamin C Glycolic Brightening Serum As much as I like the cleanser including vitamin C you’re going to get the most benefits out of a leave on treatment. This treatment pairs vitamin C with glycolic acid to give you a brighter, healthier looking complexion. The glycolic acid (which is great for oily skin!) is a chemical exfoliator that buffs away the dull dead skin cells to enhance the delivery of the vitamin C. It also has a little bit of a shimmer to the product which gives you a beautiful lit from within glow. It absorbs easily and feels really lightweight so oily skin isn’t bogged down all day like it can with other “glowy” products. 3.) Moisturize - GLAMGLOW - Mega Illuminating Moisturizer in Nude Glow (travel size) Now if I really want to have a glow I pull this out. You can really replace this with any gel moisturizer you have but this one does have a bit of nude shimmer in it that will help contribute to your glow up! It’s a very light weight gel consistency and a little goes a long way. 4.) Sunscreen - KINSHIP - Self Reflect Probiotic Moisturzing Sunscreen Zinc Oxide SPF 32 If you’re exfoliating or using vitamin C you HAVE to wear sunscreen. No ifs, ands, or buts. You have to. Those products, as beneficial as they are, make your skin a lot more photosensitive to the sun. 90% of aging comes from UVA/UVB rays so we need to help prevent this as much as possible. The Kinship sunscreen is a mineral sunscreen that is reef safe and designed for acne prone skin. This sunscreen has a little bit of a peach, glowy tint that rubs into the skin transparent but with a little bit of a glow. It highlights turmeric which soothes the skin (which you’ll need if you’re exfoliating) as well as strengthens and protects damaged skin. It also has kinbiome which will help strengthen your skin barrier. I received the Georgette Klinger as a gift the beginning of the month and I’ve been using it ever since. The Murad and Kinship I received in the 5th edition of the Trendmood box and they became immediate favorites. I’ve had a few Glamglow travel samples for quite a few years now.

I’ve been using these products in my night skincare routine for the past two months! SKINCEUTICALS - Simply Clean Gel A pea size amount goes a long way to clean the face, neck, and chest. SKINCEUTICALS - Discoloration Defense Skin Discoloration Serum I pat 4-5 drops on my face, neck, and chest daily. I have noticed huge difference! This serum has brighten and lightened my dark spots significantly, I am very happy with this serum. SKINCEUTICALS - Daily Moisture Face Moisturizer for Oily Skin This product is very moisturizing!

Ingredient Breakdown: Peptides
Ingredient Breakdown: Peptides
Collagen is a protein made up of amino acids, imparting bounce and firmness. But collagen can be broken down by free radicals (hello, oxidizing fragrance/volatile essential oil compounds), smoking, UV rays, and age. Age contributes to collagen loss also because your body makes less collagen peptides after some time in your 20s. Topical collagen-containing products don’t work, as collagen molecules are too big to pass through the epidermis. Instead, use peptides to help it act younger and make more collagen! Peptides (also made up of amino acids) are small enough to get to the dermis where collagen is made. In response, skin should start making more peptides to form more collagen. Copper peptides are considered particularly beneficial, though the main benefit over normal peptides is their wound healing capability, making them wonderful for those with acne, on top of their anti-aging benefit. DRUNK ELEPHANT - Protini Polypeptide Cream contains 9 varieties of peptides, including copper peptides, as well as a variety of amino acids, fatty acids, and humectants. I love this gel-cream, it’s wonderful as a multifaceted moisturizer that is light enough for oily skin and helps fight signs of aging. PAULA'S CHOICE - Peptide Booster contains 8 peptides, amino acids, fatty acids, and a variety of humectants. No copper peptides, instead incorporating a variety of antioxidants, helping to contribute to the calmness of skin and prevent free radical-induced breakdown of collagen. An amazing anti-aging serum with a texture that sits between creamy and silky, sinking in quickly and giving my skin quite a bit of plumpness. This would be the best of the bunch for a multifaceted anti-aging peptide product. The Ordinary - "Buffet" + Copper Peptides 1% contains seven peptides -one of which is a copper peptide- plus a variety of amino acids and hyaluronic acid. It’s a simple yet effective serum that is a bit tacky and smells of metal, but the results are worth it. Applying it to a scab/large acne lesion nightly speeds along its healing noticeably- plus I see less hyperpigmentation develop afterwards. I can’t recommend this enough as a budget-friendly entry into peptide serums!

Skincare Ingredients 101 ✅

I have sensitive combination skin that is acne-prone and these are ingredients that my skin LOVES! We see them a lot on labels but what do they do and how should we use them? 🍊 Vitamin C 🍊 Vitamin C is awesome for brightening skin and helping with acne scars. Vitamin C also is great for its ability to even out skin tone and diminish the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Research shows this ingredient can shield skin from visible impacts of environmental stressors, including free radical damage. 🔑 The key to using Vitamin C is making sure you use an SPF with it as the last step in your morning routine. Vitamin C can make your skin more prone to the sun’s rays so I’ve heard of people using it at night but for me because it fights free radicals, I love it for the daytime. Additionally, it’s important to note that some Vitamin C products have very short shelf lives. My favorite is currently the very stable Vitamin C found in the Leah Skin Rose + Glow Oil. It’s a clean and cruelty-free facial oil with a Vitamin C that lasts! Some expire as quickly as 3 months due to oxidation which makes the product less effective but the type in this product is good for a year! I also love Farmacy’s Vitamin C Serum. ❤️ Retinol ❤️ Retinol is a product that comes in many forms but is essentially great for skin cell turnover. This can help with fine lines because of this but is essentially a wonderful ingredient for acne because it speeds up that turnover process. For me, this means my breakouts heal faster and it prevents them too. 🔑 Retinol should be slowly incorporated into your skincare routine. I started with it once per week to start. It can initially cause purging, or seemingly more breakouts, which can last up to a few weeks depending on your skin and that’s ok. Stick with it as your skin cleans itself out because eventually it will be once of your favorites for preventing breakouts. You’ll gradually build up use with retinol. I personally like to pair with a heavier moisturizer like Healing Ointment by CeraVe and they’re an awesome pair. I recommend using retinol at night because the sun’s rays can make this less effective. I try to not mix too many actives on my face at once and Vitamin C and retinols do not always mix well and can irritate the skin. By having them applied at different times of day, you give your skin multiple perks over a long period of time. ✨Ceramides✨ Ceramides are fats found in high concentrations in the upper layers of skin. Aging and sun damage reduce the effectiveness of your skin’s natural ceramides which weakens your skin’s barrier. This can result in redness, irritation and dryness. Adding them helps your skin’s barrier and increases hydration which gives you plumper skin with less visible lines and fewer signs of sensitivity. 🔑 I love to have these in my moisturizers. After I cleanse, while my skin is still wet, I use a serum and then a moisturizer with Ceramides. It’s THE best. LEAH - ROSE+GLOW FACIAL OIL CeraVe - Healing Ointment

My daily skin care routine for oily skin
My daily skin care routine for oily skin
Hey Babes!! 👋🏼 My skin hasn’t looked this good in so long, so I want to share with you my regimen for oily skin 😍😍😍. CLEANSERS: So daily in the morning and evening I either use the Murad - Essential-C Cleanser or the Shira - Pure Eucalyptus Cleanser . I find myself using the Murad 🍊 cleanser during the morning ☀️ more often because the vitamin c has antioxidants and brightens the skin. Plus it smells AMAZING!! The Shira cleanser has eucalyptus 🌱 which is great for oily or acneic skin because it has anti-viral, anti-bacterial, anti-fungal and anti-microbial properties!! It also smells like you’re stepping into a spa and doesn’t irritate the skin. 😍 The Shira brand is also organic, natural and vegan friendly. 🙌🏼 In the evening 🌝 I will double cleanse with these products too in no specific order. 😂 EXFOLIATOR: SKIN SCRIPT - Raspberry Refining Cleanser I use every 3/4 days when my skin feels dull. MOISTURIZER: I’ve always been a Murad fan 💙💙, so my go to is their Murad - Nutrient-Charged Water Gel !! (Not pictured) I’ve posted about this before and why I like it. It leaves my face baby soft and since it’s water based, my skin isn’t left looking oily. I use this daily in the morning and evening. MORNING DAILY SERUM: I recently discovered a great new brand and love their vitamin c serum. insta natural - Triple Strength Vitamin C Serum !! This serum is very lightweight and contains niacinamide to balance oil production and glycolic acid to exfoliate and remove dead skin leaving a gorgeous glow. 🌟✨ the vitamin c has antioxidants to prevent free radicals which damaged your skin causing wrinkles and fine lines. It also brightens your skin if you have any acne scars or dark spots. 😍🥰 EVENING DAILY SERUM: I’m loving YEOUTH - Retinol, 2.5% Serum ! Aside from retinol, this serum has Aloe Vera and Hyaluronic Acid. The aloe will soother and the Hyaluronic Acid attracts moisture to your skin so it’s not left dry. 💧 💧. Retinol is great because it’s a form of vitamin A that exfoliates. It’s gentle enough for daily use and does not irritate my skin. Because this does have aloe Vera, the serum applies sticky, but dries smooth. I like using this at night because that’s the time your skin will start to heal and regenerate (another reason why it’s important to double cleanse). SUNSCREEN: A must!!! Anytime you exfoliate, you need to wear sunscreen!!I’ve been using MDSolarSciences - Mineral Crème Broad Spectrum SPF 50 UVA-UVB Sunscreen over 2 years now and it’s my go to. This physical sunscreen doesn’t clog pores and doesn’t leave a white cast. It leaves your skin looking matte, which is oily skin people love. 😍😍 I hope this helps you and inspires everyone to start their own regimen!! Please comment with any questions! ❤️❤️ Xoxo, Blyssey #cheriecreator

I just wanted to take some tim
I just wanted to take some time to express my love for drunkelephant. Not only has the brand changed my view on skincare, but it has dramatically improved my skin. Because of my bad habits of picking at my pimples, I’ve always suffered from acne scars. My skin is also fairly dry but I absolutely hate thick moisturizers. I have tried so many brands and products but I’ve never enjoyed any as much as I enjoy drunkelephant. Ever since I started using cfirma 3-4 months ago, I have noticed a huge difference in my skin complexion. My scars are lighter and my skin tone looks more even out. I literally cannot imagine a day without it. My only complain is how quickly it oxidizes 😭 my other absolute favourite is the protini moisturizer. It is by far the best moisturizer I have ever used and I think it’s perfect for all skin types. It is extremely lightweight but so hydrating and makes my skin feel so supple! It doesn’t dry me out nor does it leave me looking like a grease ball. It balances out my skin so perfectly! The bhydra is also amazeballs. I‘m prone to getting dry patches but this little guy always provides me the extra moisture I need. I am absolutely drunkinlove and it’s dangerous (for my credit card) 😂 *I used these minis for 2 whole months which is absolutely ridiculous! So if you’re interested in trying out the brand, I highly suggest getting the minis because they last forever!!!
