Girl_on_a_budget
Hi all❤️ Got this as a set at Sephora for $55. I was looking for an eye cream to help fix my dark circles, bags and dehydration lines under my eyes. The lady showed me the Banana Bright Eye Cream, I didn’t want to pay $57 dollars for such a small thing so I bought the set. Did the products work for me?: Be aware that different formulas work for everyone in a different way. These products sort of worked a bit, they hydrated and brightened my skin a bit, but not much other than that. The eye cream wasn’t doing much and I ditched it and the face moisturiser. I still use the vitamin C serum though, but I have to be careful cause the lid unscrews itself every now and then and it leaks into my skincare bag. Why I ditched the eye cream and moisturiser: i do not use these on my face, I use them on my legs and arms. I don’t like the ingredients in them. They both smell like oranges so they have fragrance in them and the moisturiser has Benzyl Alcohol in them, both these ingredients dry out and age your skin. The eye cream wasn’t doing much, but to be fair it takes some eye treatments months before you start seeing any results. Expensive doesn’t mean good and I wasn’t impressed. Thanks lovelies, Ciao~💋

I used the skin ceuticals Vitamin C holy grail
6 months after I started to take better care of my skin. Here’s some pics non filtered of my routine. 1. I purchased the SKINCEUTICALS - C E Ferulic With 15% L-Ascorbic Acid Vitamin C Serum the most recommended from dermatologist and was definitely not sure whether to purchase or no because of its price. Thank god I did 🙏 this is really the holy grail. 2. The OLE HENRIKSEN - Banana Bright Eye Crème this eye cream was gifted to me by cousin over a year ago. I love it. It’s absolutely amazing. 3. Last but no least thanks to Cherie for gifting me absolutely the best eye cream ever used Supergoop! - Unseen Sunscreen Broad Spectrum SPF 40 Highly recommend these products. The most important is being consistent and using them every morning. 😘

eye cream so BRIGHT 🌟🌞⚡️💥
OLE HENRIKSEN - Banana Bright Eye Crème thank you cherie for gifting me my first ever eye cream !! I had heard so much about this product, so I was super excited to try it. the first thing we gotta talk about is the scent. i’m not the biggest fan of fragrance in skin care, but this product is too good that I don’t mind at all ! it smells like a freshly squeezed glass of orange juice 🍊 and I love it ! as you can see, the texture of this product is amazing! it has a creamy thick texture that glides on the skin so smoothly. I guess a disclaimer would be that I don’t have dark under eyes, but I do notice a difference when I put this on! it brightens my whole under eye area and makes me look so much more awake! a little goes a really really long way with this product ! even if the tub is a little small, I don’t see it running out any time soon. $39USD for 0.5oz

One empty one newbie
Got my new YOUTH TO THE PEOPLE - 15% Vitamin C + Clean Caffeine Energy Serum the other day and just in time- my OLE HENRIKSEN - Banana Bright Vitamin C Serum just finished. So far I’m LOVING YOUTH TO THE PEOPLE - 15% Vitamin C + Clean Caffeine Energy Serum I think moreso than the OLE HENRIKSEN - Banana Bright Vitamin C Serum . I like the formula of the YOUTH TO THE PEOPLE - 15% Vitamin C + Clean Caffeine Energy Serum more and the iverall experience. It has a ginger scent in it which is highly invigorating, so great for my mornings. I love the watery texture it comes in and love the caffeine in it too. Caffeine is known to be great for de-puffing and overall smoothing and skin-texture improving, and I love my first impressions of the depuffing/decongestion with the caffeine. Totally feel like this was made for my mornings. OLE HENRIKSEN - Banana Bright Vitamin C Serum has a creamier formula, which I dont prefer, but it does smooth out to a flawless, non-tacky finish. The banana bright formula has a banana powder that instantly brightens the skin, but its like coloured skincare rather than longterm skincare. It does work, but its not long lasting. I do really love that formula in eye cream though 😍 my eyes can always use a wake up call. All in all I think I’m definitely gonna like the YOUTH TO THE PEOPLE - 15% Vitamin C + Clean Caffeine Energy Serum more!

Current morning & night routine ☀️🌙
Hey beauties! I wanted to share my current skin routine for morning & night, since I've updated it with some new products that I'm enjoying and it's been working for me. Hope it works for you too! :) ☀️Morning: 1. I typically don't wash my face since all I did was sleep and I do this routine pretty soon after I wake up. So the first step is really to use almost a whole pump of OLE HENRIKSEN - Banana Bright Vitamin C Serum on my whole face 2. Then I use about a dime sized amount of myKiehl's - Ultra Facial Cream 3. Glossier. - Balm Dotcom goes on my lips - I prefer either fig, birthday, berry or coconut 4. Volia! That's easy :) 🌙Evening: 1. Cleanse my face in the shower using a half pump of YOUTH TO THE PEOPLE - Superfood Antioxidant Cleanser 2. After my shower, I sometimes use my facial roller (it's SEPHORA COLLECTION - Rose Quartz Facial Rollerand Idk what to rate it as since it's the only one I have) 3. Next is the serum - depending on what's the issue; if it's acne:Glossier. - Solution Exfoliating Skin Perfector, redness and/or irritation: Glossier. - Super Pure Niacinamide + Zinc Serum, or just feels ok / needs a little something to smooth out or be more hydrated: TATCHA - The Dewy Serum Resurfacing and Plumping Treatment 4. If I want to use an eye cream, I go with the Ole Henriksen banana bright eye creme from this set: OLE HENRIKSEN - Let's Get Luminous Brightening Essentials Set it's a half size one and the set is only $40 5. Glossier. - Balm Dotcom again because it's hydrating enough for me (yes my lips do get dry since they're a little chapped when I wake up, but I don't think I necessarily need a lip mask) 6. Of course, the last step is a facial spray, and it's always my Avène - Thermal Spring Water Spraybc I can't live without it. In case you're curious, the total price for my routine is $363!! (that includes all the products I mentioned) 🤯

That texture is just *chef’s kiss*
⁣ 🍊 Let’s talk 𝐌𝐨𝐢𝐬𝐭𝐮𝐫𝐢𝐳𝐞𝐫𝐬! 🍊⁣ ⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣ I haven’t posted about moisturizers much, but I promise I use them! I have way too many open right now actually 🙈 ⁣ 𝗪𝐡𝐚𝐭 𝐢𝐬 𝐭𝐡𝐢𝐬 𝐩𝐫𝐨𝐝𝐮𝐜𝐭? This is the OLE HENRIKSEN - C-Rush Vitamin C Gel Moisturizer. Their website describes it like so: “This innovative, peachy-tinted gel crème instantly illuminates and delivers an energizing burst of 24-hour hydration. It targets fine lines and wrinkles, renews youthful radiance and firms skin—but that’s not all. C-Rush Brightening Gel Crème even improves makeup application, creating a smooth, hydrated canvas for foundation.”⁣ ⁣⁣ 𝐊𝐞𝐲 𝐈𝐧𝐠𝐫𝐞𝐝𝐢𝐞𝐧𝐭𝐬:⁣⁣ •𝟹 𝘴𝘰𝘶𝘳𝘤𝘦𝘴 𝘰𝘧 𝘷𝘪𝘵𝘢𝘮𝘪𝘯 𝘊: For addressing visible signs of aging⁣ •𝘙𝘰𝘴𝘦 𝘰𝘧 𝘞𝘪𝘯𝘵𝘦𝘳 𝘦𝘹𝘵𝘳𝘢𝘤𝘵: Rich in antioxidants to help nourish and condition skin⁣ ⁣⁣ 𝐌𝐲 𝐭𝐡𝐨𝐮𝐠𝐡𝐭𝐬: This stuff smells AMAZING! I don’t always love strong-smelling products but this smells like summer & orange creamsicles and sometimes I literally open the jar just to smell it 😏 I find this cream very hydrating but still lightweight. I’d say it’s a perfect summer moisturizer, though my husband keeps stealing it lately so it may not last me til then! ⁣ ⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣ 𝐕𝐚𝐥𝐮𝐞: I got this in a Vitamin C kit because I was really wanting to try the Truth serum & the highly regarded Banana Bright Eye Cream. The kit was $40, and is an insanely good value. Highly recommend to anyone wanting to try this line of products! ⁣ ⁣ 𝘞𝘩𝘢𝘵’𝘴 𝘺𝘰𝘶𝘳 𝘧𝘢𝘷𝘰𝘳𝘪𝘵𝘦 𝘮𝘰𝘪𝘴𝘵𝘶𝘳𝘪𝘻𝘦𝘳?? #CherieCreator

Sustainable Brand Spotlight: Earth Harbor✨
Sustainable Brand Spotlight: Earth Harbor✨
My first Texture Tuesday✨ I just received my Pearlesque box and honestly, I’m in heaven! I’ve been trying out these Earth Harbor products for about a week now, so I’m gonna wait little longer before I give a full review, but so far the Aura Eye Creme is definitely my favorite. It had such a smooth, velvety texture which is great for the under eye area. I have dark, hereditary under eye circles which I don’t think this product can fix, but I do have high hopes for what it can do. I already love this brand because of their dedication to sustainability and the preservation of marine life, so I’m really excited to see how their products work on my skin. I’ll update in a few weeks with my thoughts! EARTH HARBOR - AQUA AURA Reparative Eye Creme EARTH HARBOR - MERMAID MILK Nutrient Glow Moisturizer EARTH HARBOR - HELIOS Anti-Pollution Youth Ampoule

AQUA AURA Reparative Eye Creme
EARTH HARBOR-AQUA AURA Reparative Eye Creme
(ERNLO LASZLO) MULTI-TASK EYE GEL CREAM
(ERNLO LASZLO) MULTI-TASK EYE GEL CREAM
the erno laszlo multi task eye gel cream is a "pressed serum" that reduces the appearance of fine lines, bags and puffiness. it claims to be an eye cream and serum hybrid that tackes all the common problems of under eye areas while also providing "cushiony" hydration. while it claims to be a hybrid, the texture is the same light cream consistency of a normal eye cream. this was given to me from a giveaway a few months ago, and i'm not very impressed with it. i don't think it reduces the look of bags, wrinkles, or dark under eyes, it's a pretty "meh" eye cream as far as eye creams go. while there' nothing wrong with it, i just think it isn't that great. it hydrates, but that's about it because i didn't see any dramatic results. honestly, i wouldn't recommend this. and for $65? pass. 1/5 stars

Today I wanted to share with y
Today I wanted to share with you some amazing products from Fleur&Bee. The nectar of C rejuvenating vitamin c serum is definitely my favorite out of the three products. It's a lightweight serum packed with antioxidants and nourishing ingredients like pink grapefruit, clary sage, and chamomile. I love the consistency of this vitamin c serum, unlike most vitamin c serums that are tacky on the skin. This serum has a milky texture to it and doesn't feel sticky on the face at all but more nourishing and also hydrating. The creme da la Cream hydrating face cream also is a great product, it's thick and absorbs quickly onto the face. It's full of botanically sourced moisturizers and antioxidants. Plus, nourishing extras like acai, gotu kola and green tea. It doesn't have much of a scent to it which I don't mind at all. The last product is their Eyes eyes baby anti aging eye cream. I loved this eye cream, I'm a sucker for eye creams & I love finding good ones, and this one is excellent. It's fairly thick and spreads out nicely under the eye area. It feels lightweight once on the skin and doesn't look greasy at all. It has botanically sourced vitamins and antioxidants. Plus, nourishing extras like pomegranate, gotu kola, and dandelion and caffeine in it, which I love. These are all amazing quality ingredient skincare products right down to the lovely glass jar packaging. I highly recommend checking their skincare out. They are all super gentle and nourishing products. ♥️

I’ve been using Honeymoon Glow
I’ve been using Honeymoon Glow, Sleep Tight and Dew It All for my night routines this week, and I tried something new - mixing equal parts of Honeymoon Glow and Sleep Tight together. I did this so that HG’s acids wouldn’t be as close to my skin as they would be if I applied the serum on first (I’ve been slacking off on consistent chemical exfoliant use so I thought I’d get back into it nice and easy), and so that Sleep Tight’s thicc Vaseline-esque texture would get diluted a bit. In the end, the mixture was still greasier than I would’ve liked, but the pro was super well-nourished skin and the lighter chemical exfoliation I was looking for 💁🏻‍♀️
