Not too impressed
GLOW RECIPE - Avocado Melt Retinol Sleeping Face Mask So I had to try this because everyone was raving about it. Don’t get me wrong, I do like this product but it’s not a must have for me. It does have a funky kind of smell, my boyfriend is not a fan 😂 I don’t know how effective the retinol is but I definitely love my other retinol products better. I do like to take breaks from retinol because I feel like my face gets used to it, much like shampoos. I like to use this product on my two day retinol breaks :) earthtoskin - Super Fruits Avocado Overnight Mask I do think that is very similar and more affordable. You can pick this up at your local Walmart! I actually really love all earth to skin products. They have great sample kits for 9.99 !
Skin Care Routine
GO-TO - Fancy Face Love this cleanser. The oil based cleanser removes makeup extremely well and leaves skins feeling hydrated and soft. GO-TO - Properly Clean If you have lash extensions and can’t use oil cleansers I highly recommend this one! It’s really gentle on my skin but still removes makeup effectively. 1. I cleanse morning and night using either one of these cleansers. Fancy Face is best when you’re trying to remove heavier makeup as it is oil-based. When using Fancy Face you apply the cleanser to a dry face and remove with water. DRUNK ELEPHANT - C-Firma Vitamin C Day Serum Great product. When using regularly my skin looks brighter and skin tone is more even. Can burn a little bit on sensitive skin. 2. Each morning, after cleansing I apply a serum containing Vitamin C. This is what I’m currently using and I’m really happy with it however my skin is occasionally sensitive to this serum so I wouldn’t recommend it for sensitive skin types. GO-TO - Zincredible 15 Tinted Sunscreen is a must have when using vitamin C serums. I really like zincredible as it isn’t too heavy on my skin and goes great under makeup. Good for days when you’re not going to get too much sun exposure. INVISIBLE ZINC - Tinted Daywear Sheer Tint Medium SPF30+ I wear Tinted Daywear on days when I’ll get more sun exposure. Also great under makeup! 3. After applying serum I apply a zinc based tinted sunscreen. I like to use a tinted sunscreen as it works as a great primer under makeup. GLOW RECIPE - Watermelon Glow Ultra-Fine Mist I like to use this over my makeup for a dewy finish! 4. After applying my makeup for the day, I use a quick spritz of this mist to give my makeup a dewy finish. GO-TO - Exfoliating Swipeys Love these swipeys. So easy to use! I exfoliate with these 2-3 times a week. 5. I exfoliate 2-3 times per week, at night after cleansing to prevent product build-up. GLOW RECIPE - Avocado Melt Retinol Sleeping Face Mask This mask leaves my skin feeling hydrated and rejuvenated. 6. After cleansing/exfoliating I like to use this once or twice a week prior to bed. Still looking for a good night serum to I incorporate into my routine!

✨ go to bed too late? forget to take your makeup off? (big oof) ✨ Let’s wake up your face! 1) temperature hack: wash with WARM water, rinse with COLD. Why? Warm loosens sebum to ‘open your pores’ so your facewash like OLE HENRIKSEN - Truth Juice Daily Cleanser can better cleanse your face! cold water tightens skin to reduce pore size 2) depuff and roll: throw your jade/crystal/rose quartz roller or gua shua tool into the freezer for 5-10 min. SMARTR SKIN - Jade Roller for Face with Gua Sha facial tool put on a brightening facial gel or sheet mask like SUMMER FRIDAYS - Jet Lag Mask and roll it on and push into your skin. then rinse 3) moisturize and protect. your skin should be feeling pretty awake now! get some good moisturizer and serum/treatment to hydrate your skin. Milk MAKEUP - Cooling Water and Charlotte Tilbury - Magic Cream Moisturizer go super well together!
Korean peeling gels- are they worth the hype?
🐳BLUE🐳 K-beauty, you’ll forever have my heart!💙 Belif is one of those iconic skincare brands in Sephora, and honestly it lives up to the hype! I love the aqua bomb moisturizer, so I was excited to try this lightweight eye cream, the belif - Moisturizing Eye Bomb . It’s heavily moisturizing without feeling too sticky, and I definitely can see the effects the next morning. The Sandawha aqua peeling gel was an interesting product for me. I received it in my March Facetory box, and it works similarly to my fave Saturday Skin Peel Gel. While this product makes my skin feel very soft immediately after using, I haven’t seen any lasting effects so far, so mixed feelings about it. It smells really good though!😂

a sweet duo
I just received the FARMACY - Honeymoon Glow Serum in a giveaway, and I’m so excited to start it as I’ve heard nothing but good things about it! I think I’m going to start using it one night per week (I typically use tretinoin every night, but I’ll skip it when I use this). I love this it contains soothing ingredients like honey to offset the acids, because the concentration of acids in this is pretty high. I’ve had FARMACY - Honey Grail Ultra-Hydrating Face Oil for a while and i enjoy using it when my face is especially dry (which can happen a lot with tretinoin). I also like to run a drop between my palms and use it to take flyaway hairs. It smells amazing and the texture is very viscous and luxurious.
My go to body care products!
🐝💛 What's buzzin' guys? Happy farmacyfridays! As of late, these farmacybeauty bbs have been my go to body care products. 🍯 I love using them to keep my body feeling refreshed, soft, and well-moisturized. And here's a lil' tip: if your skin is feeling dry (like mine usually does esp. during the winter months), add a drop or 2 of Honey Grail to your Honey Butter Body cream for that exxxtra boost of hydration. It's so good. 😉👌 These were kindly gifted but all thoughts are my own. Anyway, happy Friday the 13th! 🥴 Remember to wash your hands, try not to touch your face, and BEE safe out there, my honey bees.

5 Products I’m Constantly Reaching For🌈
I have sensitive combo skin that is acne prone and I deal with hormonal breakouts as well. I also have very fine and bleached hair. 🍉 Watermelon Touchland Hand Sanitizer $12 for 1.3 oz or ~500 sprays ✨Touchland is a newer company and I have purchased several of their products. I originally purchased to just have more sanitizers handy but these are SO fun. This is my favorite scent- it’s very refreshing and I like that these products don’t leave hands feeling dry or sticky at all. This is easy to clean as well and a great sanitizer for someone who is on the move (or commuting a lot like me). These are 67% Ethyl Alcohol but also have aloe Vera and essential oils too. They are also cruelty-free and vegan. 🍊Gisou Honey-Infused Hair Oil $87 for 3.4 fl oz or $46 for 1.7 fl oz. ✨This product can be used daily as a pre-styler and finisher, added to a hair mask or used as a overnight treatment. Honey is the main ingredient which has minerals, vitamins, amino acids and antioxidants. ✨This oil is STUNNING. It is lightweight, smells amazing and isn’t sticky at all. It always makes my hair look better and I only use what I pull from the dropper either on wet or dry hair. It makes my hair feel softer and smell amazing. To use it, I use the dropper and add the amount to my hand then rub my hands together and brush it through my hair with my fingers while also lightly touching the top for flyaways. 🍋 Lip Sleeping Mask by Laneige $22 for 0.7 oz ✨This mask reminds me of bubble gum and the thick texture feels so good on my lips. I feel it hydrates well and I enjoy it for day and night use. It feels smooth when applied. I wouldn’t say it regularly lasts the full night but a little goes a long way and I reach for it constantly. 🍐Matcha Hemp Hydrating Cleanser by Krave $16 for 4.05 fl oz Key Ingredients: Matcha, hemp seeds, oats, almonds, Vitamin B5 and Sodium PCA ✨This cleanser is stunning and I’ve been recommending it to EVERYONE. It is highly hydrating and skin barrier friendly. This can be used morning and night and a little goes a long way. It doesn’t strip the skin and packs a gorgeous punch of antioxidants and hydration while cleansing. The texture is lightweight and silky. Perfection. It is also cruelty-free, fragrance-free and essential oil free! 🍇 The Beet Shield by Krave $20 for 1.69 fl oz ✨This is incredible and my current favorite sunscreen. It makes skin feel smooth and soft instead of sticky and there is no white cast. It doesn’t break me out at all and it plays nicely on top of make-up when it’s time to reapply. Try using a beauty blender for that by the way! This also has Vitamin C and antioxidants. I’d definitely repurchase. touchland - Power Mist Watermelon Hydrating hand sanitizer mist gisou - Honey Infused Hair Oil LANEIGE - Lip Sleeping Mask Krave - Matcha Hemp Hydrating Cleanser Krave - The Beet Shield
Would give this holy grail 10 stars if I could!!
Krave - Matcha Hemp Hydrating Cleanser ⭐️This is my ABSOLUTE FAVORITE cleanser I’ve ever used. ⭐️This product contains ￼￼￼￼40% matcha, one of the most antioxidant dense ingredients on the planet ￼￼￼￼Hemp seed oil that’s high in linoleic acid, amino acids, is super hydrating, and is high in antibacterial properties ￼￼￼￼Vitamin B5 and Sodium PCA to keep skin barrier intact ￼￼￼￼Mild surfactants that effectively clean you skin and leave the skin barrier intact! ⭐️I love this cleanser because it does not leave that dry, squeaky clean, ashy feeling on my skin. It does not strip my skin of its natural oils, nor does it alter my skin’s pH, hence no irritation or redness! It is SUPER hydrating and gentle, yet removes everything I want it to wash off. ⭐️I use it morning and night for about 60 seconds! This is also a great second cleanse if you go in first with an oil based cleanser or balm. ⭐️No frangrance, essential oils, or colorants! Making this product great for every skin type! 💚ABSOLUTE REPURCHASE. My all time favorite. No complaints! -J

Review my routine!
Hello everyone, I am going to show you my routine every night, I hope you can read it and my thoughts will help you! remember each product works differently depending on your skin type. 〰️ 〰️ 〰️ 1️⃣ I start by washing my face with fresh - Soy Makeup Removing Face Wash I really enjoy using this cleanser, It is my favorite since it leaves my skin super clean and refreshing, it has a cucumber smell that I love. 〰️ 〰️ 2️⃣ my next step is to spray YOUTH TO THE PEOPLE - Adaptogen Soothe + Hydrate Activated Mist with Reishi + Ashwagandha , I use this once I get my face clean and let it dry, also this is wonderful as a last step in my skin care routine in case I do a chemical peel or an enzyme powder to exfoliate. 〰️ 〰️ 〰️ 3️⃣ my third step I only do it when I have dark spots ( thanks to my hormonal acne) on my skin, and I really like Kiehl's - Clearly Corrective Dark Spot Solution It feels super light, dries very quickly and I have noticed a difference in the area of my cheek where I have had dark spots. 〰️ 〰️ 〰️ 4️⃣ my fourth step is to apply my moisturizer GLOW RECIPE - Watermelon Pink Juice Oil-Free Moisturizer This is my favorite light weight moisturizer. It doesn’t feel heavy on the skin, it doesn’t freak out my oily T zone but still leaves my dry skin feeling nourished. 〰️ 〰️ 〰️ 5️⃣ don't forget to hydrate your lips 👄 so lastly I use LANEIGE - Lip Sleeping Mask Leaves my lips super hydrated, soft, I am so happy with this product, since I started using it the skin on my lips does not break like Before. if you got to last part, I hope it helps you some of my routine. 👏🏻 Thank you!
Glow recipe product reviews
✅Watermelon sleeping mask: a hydrating, mild exfoliation night mask. The texture is gel like and changes to water like on application. Contains hyaluronic acid, glycolic & lactic acid,watermelon extract, pomegranate, banana, pumpkin extract which are all good antioxidants. Contains fragrance. It makes my skin super soft in the morning. ✅Watermelon glow mist: a ultra fine mist that hydrates & refreshes the look of makeup. Contains watermelon extract, HA, mild AhA. It definitely is one of my favorite mist for how fine it is, how well it hydrates & the smell is divine. I use it as a last step in my night skincare routine to seal in the hydration. ✅Pink juice Watermelon moisturizer: the Top product of the my whole GR products. The texture is little similar to the sleeping mask but more light weight, but the hydration is extra ordinary(especially along with the mist). Contains watermelon extract, HA, licorice root extract, various antioxidants. It truly is one of the best moisturizer i ever used. Brightens well, hydrates and the packaging is beautiful. Works great for various skin types. I am surely repurchasing this in future, i really miss it. ✅Banana souffle moisture cream: A thicker moisturizer than the previous one. Contains the goodness of banana, potassium, magnesium, cica, turmeric, chia seed extract. Lot of calming ingredients. Contains fragrance, smells like banana. Works good for combo, dry and normal skin, not for oily skin. Not a must have product. ✅The watermelon mist & pink juice moisturizer are my top picks.
Honey-lious Routine 🍯
You know I love my Farmacy Beauty products & right here is a fabulous routine! Full of honey goodness 🍯 I start off with FARMACY - Green Clean Makeup Removing Cleansing Balm (not sure why I didn’t picture it first) to remove all makeup, sunscreen and dirt & debris. I love how gentle and effective this is! I can see my makeup washing down the drain as I go to rinse my face. It’s so easy! Next up is FARMACY - Clean Bee Ultra Gentle Facial Cleanser this washes away anything I may have missed with that first cleanse and rebalances my pH level for the next steps. This one is perfect for everyone! It’s got a natural honey scent that I am not a big fan of but I can easily get past that because of the amazing benefits! FARMACY - Bright On Massage-Activated Vitamin C Mask I love to mask as often as I can. I find when I consistently use masks in my routine my skin responds much more favorably. I love exfoliating and brightening masks. This one does both! It’s a clay mask but doesn’t dry my skin out. Love the brightening effects of this one! FARMACY - Honeymoon Glow Serum once I’ve removed the mask it’s time for my targeted skincare treatment and Honeymoon Glow is my absolute go-to! This has been my lifesaver. The results speak for themselves. I have a timeline photo on my page showing how well this beauty works (before/after). Some have a tingling sensation when applying. It’s never been a bother for me and I do have sensitive skin. So be aware this can happen. A finally FARMACY - Honey Drop Lightweight Moisturizer Between Honey Drop and Better Daze Ahead, I could survive off Farmacy’s moisturizers! Honey Drop is very lightweight so if you have super dry skin this one might not work for you. Better Daze Ahead is my go-to when my skin is acting up and needs extra moisturizing. They have a new one as well, FARMACY - Daily Greens Oil-Free Gel Moisturizer with Moringa and Papaya which I’ve heard those with oily skin love. It’s not for me personally. I find it leaves my skin feeling tacky and almost like it has a silicone feel (which it doesn’t have). For some reason my skin doesn’t get along with this one. So there you have it! A simple routine that won’t do you wrong. Of course you can add toners, (I’d do so after cleansing) other serums and essences (after masking) and oils (after moisturizing). This is a routine I often use 💚 hope you enjoy #CherieCreator ❤️ my@cheriefamily 🍒😘 My apologies for the terrible lighting! I’ve ordered a ring light in hopes for improvement as it’s too damn hot to shoot photos outside 🥵 (averaging 113 temps!) My products can’t be in that heat!
FARMACY-Bright On Massage-Activated Vitamin C Mask
Looking to Add AHA to my Evening Routine
My skin is famously dry and sensitive. Like, any new product needs CAREFUL consideration and research, sometimes just rinsing my face with water can cause redness and irritation. Anything I do buy needs to be introduced slowly and just a little bit at a time. I used a chemical exfoliant once and it left my skin itching like crazy, red, and drier than the Sahara, so I’ve been a user of physical exfoliants my whole life. But recently I’ve been looking for something deeper to really reset my skin without irritation and burning. I included my current routine of products I’m currently using, and my face to give you a better idea of what my skin is like. Being a dry skin type, I’m always looking for hydration, so a one-two punch of exfoliation and hydration is ideal for me! Can you help a girl out? Leave and recommendations in the comments below!

Blue Tower on a Tuesday!
Happy Tuesday everyone! I’m loving this little blue tower 🥰 I’ve made posts previously about how obsessed I am with the Water Drench products, so I won’t get into it again! 😂 but I have these minis from Tatcha, and I haven’t chatted about them yet. I haven’t used the cleanser yet, but the Water Cream. It’s meh. I found it applied just like the Water Drench moisturizer, but it really didn’t feel as hydrating. Maybe I need to try the Dewy Cream? I just don’t understand the hype behind this moisturizer. I am pretty certain that the Hydrating Eye Get is breaking me out around my eyes so I think I’ll return it. I was getting little tiny whiteheads on my brow bone and under my eyes. I wanted to like it but it is just not worth the $55. The Laneige Lip Sleeping Masks are always a good purchase! My lips aren’t dry when I wake up and they all have the best smells/flavours! 😍 since you don’t need a lot of product at a time, these will last you for a while.

My Youth to the People Collection
•Adaptogen soothe + hydrate activated mist: a very fine hydrating mist. I use this as a toner and love how it makes my skin look! •Kale + green tea spinach vitamins superfood cleanser: this is my new favorite cleanser! It cleanses my skin without drying it out! •Kombucha + 11% AHA exfoliating power toner: I use this toner every other night and I wake up with such nice bright skin! One of the few toners I feel actually does something. It does apply slightly sticky but when I put all my other products on it goes away. •Adaptogen deep moisture cream: I’ve only tried this out a few time so I don’t have a full opinion yet but it definitely felt lightweight and sunk into my skin nicely. •Superberry hydrate + glow dream mask: this is by far my favorite night mask. It makes my skin so hydrated and glowy. These are all super star products and essentials in my skincare routine! I recommend these products 100%!
