Dermalogica Face mist
dermalogica - Antioxidant HydraMist Honestly this is an okay face mist. The reason why I gave it a three star because it didn’t do much to my skin. The smell was kind weird. The price is high for a face mist that did not do much to my skin. I felt like there are cheaper face fist that does more. Honestly I’m not buying this every again. The product claim to help prevent aging, gives a nice firm skin. It also claims that there are no fragrance. For some reason I smell artificial lavender in this face mist. I used up this face mist and I was not impressed :/

What is it: Hydrating gold eye masks used to help diminish dark circles How to use: Place under eyes for 10-15 minutes. I rubbed in the access after taking off. Results: My under eyes were definitely left more hydrated after one use and helped with makeup application. I think you would need to use continuously for improved dark circles. Do I recommend: Yes! Caused no burning on my sensitive eyes and will repurchase ☺️
A little packet of luxury
Alright. I was born blessed with dark circles or at least I can’t remember a time when I didn’t have them. So over the years I would invest in creams and gels and eye rollers to try and fix them. Still nothing. Then I started to buy all the concealers and they always seemed to make me feel cakey, crease or rub off so by the end of the day I looked as tired as I felt (not ideal). Today was the first time I used WANDER BEAUTY - Baggage Claim Gold Eye Masks . While I can’t say I’m in love I’m definitely in like. I left it on for 15 minutes. I massaged my under eyes when I put it on and then again when I was taking them off. They market that the gold foil keeps the heat in and it seemed like it did. They masks were warmer than my skin when I felt them. When I took them off it seemed like the edge of the mask left a crease on my under eye skin but that went away pretty quickly. Another weird thing was that the left eye seemed to have more serum than the right when I was taking them off. Anyway, I do feel like maybe my dark circles have faded a bit. I definitely feel pampered though and at $25 for 6 packets I would really hope that I did. After this initial use, there are a few things I would change. I would not do this in the morning since my eyes still feel a little sticky (I’m still WFH, so it’s fine). I think I would do a little less massaging because maybe that’s what caused the dryness on the right patch??? Overall, pretty pleased with the result but because they’re pretty expensive, not adding this to my weekly routine. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ UPDATE: do NOT recommend doing this with your boyfriend. He will make you laugh and then they will just fall off and then he will take pictures of you to send to all of his friends...

Biggest Let Down 😭💗
This mascara used to be everything!!! My lashes were so long when I used this product I stopped curling them because they would hit my brows! But a while back I noticed the formula of this product changed and I was less than impressed 😫 My lashes would clump, they weren’t as long, the formula was thick, and the product had an odd smell. I though I might’ve just had a bad batch but all of the tubes I got were like this! I’m so sad because this used to be my go to... but now I wouldn’t waste my money on it! Has anyone else noticed this change??
LET'S TALK MASCARA! 🥰
(TAGGED IN PIC FROM LEFT --> RIGHT) Today I'm going to be rating some mascaras and sharing some tips & tricks with you about, you guessed it, mascara! First let's start with tips, these will be about application & just things that may make the application easier: ￼￼BEND THE WAND! I know this seems scary but it can actually help with your application & lessen the chances of smudging. So just take your wand head & bend it to a 90° angle this will allow you to maneuver the wand better and keep you from getting that clump of mascara on your nose, you know what I'm talking about. 🤣 I promise the wand will be safe & intact as long as we don't go Hulk on it. ￼￼DRY MASCARA? This is one of my personal favorite hacks, if you accidentally left your mascara open or anything like that run the tube under hot water/keep it inside of a glass while doing other steps of your make up routine this will help smooth out the formula & make application 10x better. ￼￼SMUDGING? Use a clean spoolie (like on the back of brow pencil) AFTER mascara has dried, if you gently brush the spoolie onto your face the mascara will begin to flake off without ruining your look! ￼￼TWIRL, DON'T PUMP! I know it seems natural to pump your mascara tube for more products but please stop! When you do, it allows air inside the tube which can dry out the formula & make it susceptible to bacteria. So if you need more product, before you fully take out the wind twirl it around for even distribution of product. ￼￼MIXING! I do this all the time try using more than one type of mascara, all wands are made differently so they have different purposes I like to use a voluminous and lengthening mascara! Find a formula you love & see what you can do to make it even BETTER! Lastly I just wanna touch on different application techniques - Wiggling wand: helps maintain curl - Wiggling horizontally at lash base: thicker/voluminous lashes - Wiggling vertically at lash base: natural effect Now the fun part: RATINGS! Most are waterproof formula because I feel it holds my lashes up longer. ￼￼MAYBELLINE - Volum' Express The Rocket Waterproof Mascara - an old favorite! good volume not my favorite brush head, it is plastic. ￼￼￼benefit - They’re Real! Lengthening Mascara - don't like the "They're Real" line! everything feels dry & doesn't apply well ￼￼￼L'ORÉAL - Voluminous Lash Paradise Waterproof Mascara - okay but too wet, smudged on me a lot ￼￼L'ORÉAL - Voluminous Million Lashes Waterproof Mascara - great for separating, i like to pair this with other mascaras! ￼￼essence - Lash Princess False Lash Effect Waterproof Mascara - current fave! all essence mascaras are bangers but this one is the BEST! ￼￼Too Faced - Better Than Sex Waterproof Mascara - stayed put but almost too well! need industrial grade remover for this Thanks for reading. ❤️ #cheriepartner
I tried this deodorant as I’m a natural deodorant user and I loved it ! It has a choice of scents that smell amazing. It’s on the pricey side 11$ at Walmart but it well worth it and has lasting power to keep that funk at bey!
A College Student’s SKIN CABINET On the Go!
Welcome to my on the go skin cabinet! I’m so thrilled to be working with Cherie and Skin Cabinet for the next few weeks!🤩 That being said, let’s start out with how I organize my favorites!🥰 • Being a college student, I’m moving around a lot between home and my apartment at school. So, I needed an easy way to hold all of my products that did not take up too much room. College living is definitely making the most of smaller spaces! 🧺 My Two Organizers 🌿 • My little clear organizer I found at TJ Maxx for around $8, which is a great price considering most I have seen go for about $20! 🤑 • The very cute mini makeup fridge is a Cooluli - Classic 4 Liter Small Mini Fridge It comes in plain colors, but I’m from the south so it’s all about Coke here! I absolutely love my little fridge, but there is a large emphasis on ‘little.’ I think in the future I’ll want to size up, as my of my products are really tall and take up loads of space! If you have mainly smaller serums or such products, I believe the smallest sized fridge would serve you well! ❄️ To name a few favorites in the clear organizer🌿 • I have my Formula 10.0.6 mud and peel masks (I have some reviews up already, and I’ll be sure to get through them all in the future!) • My NATIVE - Citrus & Herbal Musk The one I have was seasonal, and it’s scent is cypress and ginger! Also they are now doing plastic free packaging which I am THRILLED about! • My bh - Crystal Zodiac 12 Piece Brush Set which I will have in a review coming up! In this picture they had just been washed and were still drying, which explains the lack of fluff • The lotion is PACIfICA - Indian Coconut Nectar Body Butter Tube This lotion was a godsend when I was staying at the hospital for a week a few years ago, and I have used it ever since! • And of course my clarisonic - Mia Smart Skincare + Mario Badescu Holiday Gift Set What’s Inside the Fridge 🌿 • I love the way the FORMULA 10.0.6 - Keep Your Cool Mask feels chilled! Go check out my post about the mask to learn more about why I adore it! 🧊😍 • The FORMULA 10.0.6 - So Totally Clean Deep Pore Cleanser is also in there. This stuff is a miracle worker, but I’ll be the first to admit it stings. That being said I like the contrast of stinging with the cold! • Lastly, I keep one of my FORMULA 10.0.6 - Best Face Forward Daily Foaming Cleanser in here! I use the chilled one in the morning for an extra wake up call! Note 🌿 •While these are not all the products in my organizers, these are my favorites! If you have questions about something you see that I didn’t touch on please ask me about it! • I am so ecstatic to share what is coming in the next few weeks! See you then! 🙌🤩

throwback to a good day
I remember doing this makeup in September for an event where I read some of my poetry for the first time . I am still getting used to my really short hair and to feel as feminine and as confident.

Damn Girl, why your brush so big?
I found the Too Face Damn Girl mascara to be ok but nothing to get excited about. I feel like I have average lashes with them as far as volume goes but I didn’t see much lengthening. However, it does seem to hold a curl better than mascaras with runny consistencies. It’s a drier formula so while it doesn’t run all over your face it still is messy which brings me to the main issue. Why is this brush so big?!? The formula itself wouldn’t be messy if it was applied with a smaller mascara wand. When I apply it is all over my lids and bottom lash line which exacerbated the dark circles if you don’t clean it up. This mascara requires a q-tip clean up every single time. This isn’t as big of deal when just wearing mascara and bare lids but it messes up my eyeshadow and liner so I have to redo it (yes I’ve tried applying mascara first and I get too much fallout on the lashes from eye shadow where it looks worse than cleaning up afterward). While I didn’t pay for this because it’s an add on trial size with a Sephora order, I’m rating it as if I did because I feel the formula is similar to lash paradise but the brush is too big which causes all the issues.

Is Farmacy Really Farm Fresh?? 🌾
Me: dry-combo, currently acne prone, sensitive or very sensitive For my first dive into Farmacy products, I purchased the FARMACY - Farmer's Market Kit so that I could try a variety of their bestsellers. Overall, a good tester kit for your money with adequately sized samples! (Much bigger than the Glow Recipe sample sizes.) From favorite to least favorite: FARMACY - Green Clean Makeup Meltaway Cleansing Balm This was my first ever cleansing balm and I fell in love 😍 Your skin feels so smooth and moisturized afterwards. As a dry skin person I often used this as a single cleanse and didn’t notice any breakouts. I knocked off a star because it contains fragrance.... but actually I LOVE the smell... I just worry about my sensitive skin. The next balm I’m trying out is the GOOD MOLECULES - Instant Cleansing Balm FARMACY - Daily Greens Oil-Free Gel Moisturizer with Moringa and Papaya This was a nice lightweight moisturizer. I didn’t like the smell quite as much as the balm but it was fine. It did leave a bit of a shiny sticky residue for me but that went away when i added oil on top. Overall, not enough moisture for my skin right now, but I could see myself loving it in the summer! The next lightweight moisturizer I am trying is the CeraVe - PM Facial Moisturizing Lotion FARMACY - Honey Potion Renewing Antioxidant Hydration Mask I wanted to love this one, and about half the time I loved it, but about half the time I HATED it. When it was good, it made my skin feel so smooth, hydrated, and brightened. When it was bad, it BURNED my skin, horribly at times. I guess it depends on how my skin barrier is doing? Probably not a repurchase since it was so unpredictable on my sensitive skin. I love honey and would love to hear thoughts on other honey masks to try! FARMACY - Very Cherry Bright 15% Clean Vitamin C Serum with Acerola Cherry My least favorite of the group, this one was just too sticky for me. I also didnt like the smell... it was almost sour smelling? Idk, just not for me. I’m now trying the Mad Hippie - Vitamin C Serumfor my next vitamin C product. I also now purchased FARMACY - Cheer Up Brightening Vitamin C Eye Cream with Acerola Cherry and it is too soon for a full review but right now I am liking it a lot! It is not sticky, and does not have the funny smell of the serum. What do you guys think?? What Farmacy products should I try next? I’m eyeing the FARMACY - Honey Drop Lightweight Moisturizeror the FARMACY - Honey Halo Ultra-hydrating Ceramide Moisturizerand the FARMACY - Honeymoon Glow Serumand maybe the FARMACY - Whipped Greens: Oil-Free Foaming Cleanser With Moringa and Papaya!! Let me know what you think!
My experiences with Farmacy
I’d like to talk about two recent additions to my skin care routine. These are both good clean products and I recommend them, but I don’t plan to repurchase. First, I’ve tried FARMACY - BEE CLEAN It was recommended to me by a sales person at Sephora. This cleanser is great, but I think it’s a little too stripping for my dry blemish prone skin. I’ve been trying to overcompensate with other hydrating products, but my skin has felt a little rough. I think this is a great cleanser for combination skin or oily skin, but if it’s on the dry side, find something else. To try and bring some much-needed hydration into my skin, I’ve also been trying the FARMACY - Honey Potion Renewing Antioxidant Hydration Mask I think it’s pretty pricey for what you get, and I just didn’t get the skin softening effects I was hoping for. It’s not the miracle product I was hoping for, but it is a nice warming treatment and again, I’d recommend it for combination skin or oily skin. I did discover a new serum that’s been giving oh skin more glow and hydration. I will post about it next time. Thanks for reading!

Puffy under eyes? Try these ❄️
If you struggle with puffy eyes in the morning or right before a big event, these are great for you. Skyn Iceland’s cooling eye gels can also be kept in a skin care fridge to keep the cool! This will enhance the way they work 🙌🏼. skyn ICELAND Hydro Cool Firming Eye Gels are easy-to-apply, under-eye gel pads work to firm, de-puff and reduce fine lines and wrinkles for younger-looking, revitalized eyes. Elastin promotes firmness while hexapeptide reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Ginkgo Biloba diminishes puffiness and antioxidant Co-Q10 neutralizes free radicals for a rejuvenated appearance. You can pop them on while you’re doing a face mask, or even by themselves in the morning or even at night. They truly are great and I would highly recommend! 💕 skyn ICELAND - Hydro Cool Firming Eye Gels #eyegels #undereye #skyniceland #CherieCreator
My favorite eye gel mask
So far, I haven’t tried a product by this brand that I haven’t liked. These are intended to firm and depuff the under eye area. They’re also very cool to the touch when I put them on and it feels so refreshing. I was gifted these for Christmas and I have already bought a second pack. I usually like to put them on in the morning before i do my makeup and just relax for ten minutes with them on while I wake up. I can definitely tell that my eyes look refreshed and firmed. A pack of four is 17.50 at Ulta which I think is a fair price! If you’re looking for a new eye product, I would recommend trying this one! skyn ICELAND - Hydro Cool Firming Eye Gels

Love it or hate it?
YOUTH TO THE PEOPLE - Kombucha + 11% AHA Exfoliation Power Toner Anyone else want to love this, but just can’t with the sticky feeling? I feel like my skin was so smooth and glowing the next day. However my face was so sticky when I put it on I couldn’t get past the feeling.

Skincare + Eco-Friendliness (yes, it exists!)
Maybe you’ve been a little more environmentally conscious lately or have been a tree hugger your entire life. Whatever your case may be, I think we can all relate to the feeling of being able to do good while look good 😏🙌🏼 I personally put a lot of emphasis on being eco-friendly when it comes to the skincare industry because of how much waste can accumulate just from packaging alone. Think about how many plastic is on your shelf right now. Here are a few products/brands that are magnetized towards being eco-friendly 👇🏼💗 YOUTH TO THE PEOPLE - Limited Edition Pride Superfood Antioxidant Cleanser I was able to repurpose this glass bottle into another bottle for my new cleanser. The versatility of glass packaging (heavily endorsed by YTTP) is essential for skincare as it encourages the process of reusing materials without excessive waste. This cleanser is also extremely fresh and leaves my skin feeling super clean. Before, I’d go through countless plastic bottle cleansers that were both non environmentally friendly AND non effective. HERBIVORE - Prism 5% Exfoliating Glow Potion this small herbivore bottle is also made of glass and has a pipet for easy portioning of any liquids. I especially love how Herbivores products are vegan and cruelty free! This specific exfoliant worked in my favor to achieve a glow and vibrant look to my skin. I enjoyed the subtle yet effectiveness of it. REN CLEAN SKINCARE - Perfect Canvas Clean Primer when Ren skincare launches this primer, it not only came in a glass bottle but also a card with instructions on how to properly recycle it after it’s done. This was extremely intuitive on their part as it provides a physical reminder to consumers of the proper way to recycle products. The primer definitely primed my face well as I noticed my makeup staying on longer with this on due to the tacky texture. It comes out as a “serum” but blends into the skin like a “lotion.” Magic, no? Finally, as my last photo, here you can see the packaging boxes of various skincare products ive collected over the years. I cut the packages to fit into a “collage” made on a $5 target cork board with glue. The final result came out so pretty and made for the perfect gift for one of my IG friends! 😏🙌🏼 Being into skincare doesn’t mean you have to sacrifice being environmentally conscious. Being aware of brands who are striving towards the same goal as you can help streamline this habit and help encourage others to be a little more loving to mama earth 😌✨
I Used Up These 2⃣ Hyped Products, Here Is What Happened👉👉
I recently used up several skincare products. I noticed that these two products are pretty hyped these days, so here is my honest review. I hope this is helpful. 👇 Youth To The People focuses on natural organic ingredients. I love their idea of using recyclable packaging and being cruelty-free. YOUTH TO THE PEOPLE - Limited Edition Pride Superfood Antioxidant Cleanser Main ingredients: Vitamin B5, vitamin C, kale leaf extract, spinach leaf extract and green tea leaf extract. Among the ingredients, the cleansing ingredient is considered gentle. Vitamin B5 and vitamin C provide a moisturizing and whitening effect while the various superfood extracts have great anti-oxidant and anti-microbial properties. Feeling: It smells really nice, doesn't create a lot of foam and can be washed off easily. It's suitable for oily skin but I don't recommend it for those with dry skin as it leaves your skin dry after it's washed off. There's nothing special about it except for its nice scent. TATCHA TATCHA - The Water Cream Main ingredients: Rice ferment filtrate, green tea and algae. Rice bran keeps the skin hydrated, soothes it, and keeps it healthy. Feeling: I don't really like it as it contains exfoliating particles, causing my skin to break out in acne after using it just once. It has a jelly-like gel texture with beads that burst when it's rubbed into the skin. Simply massage it in until fully absorbed. I've read online that it's moisturizing, anti-aging and it minimizes the appearance of pores, but I didn't experience the latter two effects. It's quite moisturizing though, so I think it's suitable for both oily and dry skin. Have you used any of these products? How do you like it? Let me know😉

These saved my dry skin! ❄️
I usually have combination skin but for the past few weeks my skin has been extremely dry and tight. I’ve felt the most dryness on the lower parts of my cheeks and slowly my face has become more sensitive. These products have definitely helped improve the texture and hydration of my skin. I’m usually somewhat dry with my forehead/nose being really oily. My area has been having really cold dry winter days and nights. I start off with glossier milky jelly cleanser. It’s super conditioning. It doesn’t lather and helps soothe the redness. This has always worked for my combination skin and now works perfectly for my dehydrated dry skin. This doesn’t have a scent which I love. I have the full size and I already bought a back up of this. Full size is 6 oz $18 Mini size is 2 oz $9 Glossier. - Milky Jelly Cleanser I follow with my peach & Lilly glass skin refining serum. I’ve been using this since July and it’s really light but moisturizing. It doesn’t irritate my skin at all and I’ve definitely seen my skin be less textured. This texture is very thin close to watery. This also doesn’t have a scent to it. It’s kinda pricey but does last several months. It’s $39 for 1 oz PEACH & LILY - Glass Skin Refining Serum For moisturizer I’ve been using the GLAMGLOW moisture trip omega rich moisturizer. This is a lightweight moisturizer but feels very hydrating. It has helped with my redness a lot. It has hyaluronic acid so it will help with dryness. It’s a nice feeling knowing you’re putting on a good moisturizer to help with dryness without the thickness of it. It has a slight fresh/avocado scent to it. It’s pricey at $55 for 1.7 oz. GLAMGLOW - MOISTURETRIP Omega-Rich Face Moisturizer At night I love to follow with the origins drink up intensive overnight hydrating mask with avocado & Swiss glacier water. I absolutely love this overnight mask. I’ve been using it for years and it’s something I trust to get rid of the dryness and tightness in my skin. It feels really soft on the skin and it’s not thick. Its great for my sensitive skin too. It has a very slight avocado smell but it’s not too much. For the first week I used this every night. After that I now use this every other day. Besides that I tend to use this once or twice a week. Full 2.5 oz is $27 Mini 1 oz is $13 ORIGINS - Drink Up-Intensive Overnight Mask to Quench Skin's Thirst I never forget about the lips and I use my trusty glossier mint balm dot com. I love this so much that I’m almost done with it. Personally the mint, rose, coconut and Un scented one are the ones with the most hydration. It’s pricey but I’ve had this for about a year. It’s 0.5 oz for $12. Glossier. - Balm Dotcom
GlamGlow Boxycharm SCORE! 🥴
I’ve posted past reviews of some items that I have received in my boxycharm subscription box. I am excited to post this one because it was a real score imo. Usually I will use my CeraVe moisturizer but when I saw this GLAMGLOW - MOISTURETRIP Omega-Rich Face Moisturizer in my boxy, I had to try it out. I am pleased to say that this moisturizer is wonderful! My only problem? The price tag. I find that my CeraVe moisturizer works just as well as this one for half the price. If you are one who does not need to focus on the price tag, then of course you can opt for this little guy. But for me? I can’t afford $70 to give my skin a moisture boost. Anyways, the product applies nicely, not greasy and doesn’t sit on top of your skin in a slimy gross layer. It absorbs right in and makes your skin feel nice and soft. A little of this product goes a long way! A bit of a scent, but not an unpleasant one and not too strong. Overall I give this product 5/5 ⭐️’s (I didn’t let the price tag affect my review). #CherieCreator

worth it? viicode vs patchology
Hi guys! Today I’m going to be talking about some eye mask/patches I’ve used and whether or not I think the more expensive option (Viicode) is worth it. Cost: — The Viicode masks come out to about $9.16/pair of eye masks. — The Patchology masks come out to $3/pair, so you can get three Patchology masks for the price of a Viicode one! Application: — The Viicode patches are meant to be worn for up to 8 hours, or overnight. They tend to not slip around very much and are very sticky. — The Patchology patches are meant to be worn for only 15-20 minutes. They all tend to slide around on my face unless I put a sheet mask on top or stop moving. Claims: — The Viicode patches are overall plumping and brightening, and of course luxurious. I think they are rather hydrating and the effect lasts all day after I wear them at night. I didn’t think they were going to work as well as they do. — all of the Patchology patches I’ve tried are good but not great. They are brightening and plumping a bit, but not the most hydrating, and the effect doesn’t last super long throughout the day. Worth it? Both are worth it! — I think the Viicode patches are worth the price, but it’s not something I can afford all the time. They are a very luxurious set that I use before social events or important work events (and I can see myself using them on my wedding day!). — The Patchology masks are much more accessible and affordable comparatively. They are not at all the same caliber of product compared to the Viicode, but that’s okay! In this case, they are great for every day or twice a week use. Good for mornings when I wake up looking a mess!

The BEST Eye Masks
These Wander Beauty Eye Masks are 100% the best eye masks I've tried. They're supposed to brighten, hydrate and reduce the appearance of dark circles. I mainly use them for hydration or if my eyes are feeling tired, because hydration is my only concern. I store them in my beauty fridge so that they will also help depuff. Pros: ➕ they stay saturated because of the foil ➕ if stored in the fridge they're extremely cooling ➕ extremely hydrating Cons: ➖ they will slide around I will always have these on hand and actually have some in my Sephora cart right now. I love them. I think they're way better than other under eye masks because they stay so saturated and can continue to hydrate the skin for so much longer than others I've tried. At $25 for a pack of 6 (less than $5 for a pair) I think they're pretty reasonable in price. WANDER BEAUTY - Baggage Claim Rose Gold Eye Masks

How much product do you really need?! Here is a breakdown of how much and what products I use in my AM Skin Routine. The key is to use the products sparingly and go by the nickel-sized rule.

Reduces redness and adds antioxidants to your skin. 4. SPOT TREATMENT - For those days blemishes are about to pop up, I dab this on the affected spots. My go to spot treatment is bioClarity's 'Treat' with 2% Salicyclic Acid bioClarity - Treat Acne Clearing Gel It does not sting at all, Love this product! Knowing that it is made with plant-based, natural ingredients makes me feel at ease and that I'm treating my face with non-toxic ingredients. 5. EYE GEL - I use a little dab for both eyes...For reducing puffiness or signs of lack of sleep...Eye gel works wonders! It also helps with dryness around the eyelids area. I use bioClarity's 'Eye Will Chill' de-puffing Eye gel bioClarity - Eye Will Chill De-Puff Eye I use these product Every morning, love it! Like all the other bioClarity products, it is made with natural plant-based ingredients* 6. SUNCREEN - Last AM Skincare Step if the morning...applying Sunscreen!!

My go to sunscreen is bioClarity's 'Sunfilter' 30 SPF Natural Mineral Sunscreen for the face. bioClarity - Sunfilter SPF 30 Mineral Face Sunscreen + 12 Hour Moisture This sunscreen absorbs so fast!
Bioclarity Spa faves!
100% vegan, cruelty-free, paraben-free, and sulfate-free is what I love about BioClarity products! bioClarity - Clarifying Masque This mask is amazing for redness, inflammation, blemishes, and dryness. I use this once a week to give my pores a deep treatment. It works for clearing up acne and contains natural ingredients that are better for you. Leave it on for 20 minutes or when the skin starts tightening up. Then, always finish up with moisturing! bioClarity - Restore I recommend Restore to add to your moisturizing steps. It's an ultra nourishing gel that contains natural ingredients. Great for prepping the skin before applying face cream or serums. Hydration is key to healthy, glowy skin. Restore makes my skin feel so soft and dewey! Feel free to use my code BBIOJANE for 15% off your BioClarity purchases =)

❄️Laneige Essential Power Toner for dry skin❄️
🥛As I was finishing off my Laneige Cream Skin, I already regretted buying one this instead. It’s not terrible, I just realized immediately that I like their Cream Skin Toner so0oO0o much better! 🧊This slightly translucent blue bottle is gorgeous though! It’s plastic, but very sturdy & well made. LANEIGE - Essential Power Skin Toner for Normal to Dry Skin $28/6.7 oz 🔹Though this is a much better deal per oz than Cream Skin, it does contain Alcohol (3rd ingredient) & fragrance (last ingredient) while ‘Laneige Cream Skin’ is alcohol & fragrance free. 🌀Overall this isn’t a horrible toner for dry skin, but it’s not a good choice for sensitive skin. It’s heavily fragranced. 💦I also don’t like the slightly gelatinous, yet somehow very watery texture. It feels a little slimey. Though it doesn’t dry out my skin or anything, I didn’t like the slightly sticky feeling afterwards. The container does make it really easy to dispense without a mess, which I do appreciate. The scent is a sort of floral/clean refreshing smell, but you do get notes of alcohol. I’m not super sensitive to fragrance, but I don’t like alcohol smell😕 ❄️The formula does have a lot of good hydrating ingredients like Prickly Pear extract, Panthenol (provitamin B5), Amino acids, Vitamin-rich Silver Birch & Quinoa extracts. It’s also enriched with moisture enhancing minerals Zinc, Manganese, Magnesium, Sodium, Calcium & Potassium which are ionized & stabilized in water, designed to absorb quicker into skin. ◻️I tried it with & without a cotton pad for application experimentation, but wasn’t feelin it that much either way. I’ll definitely finish it, but since I had to reorder cream skin, I’ll probably start alternating. I also don’t use a toner 2x a day or necessarily every day. Kinda depends on how my skin feels. 🤷🏻♀️Toners are definitely a debated topic. I won’t be the one to tell you need one at all. I’ve just been using them in my skincare routine foreverr & I enjoy that addition to my routine. I like my skin to feel balanced & refreshed after cleansing... But what I will say is: a toner is not meant to further clean your skin or remove last bits of makeup after cleansing. If your cotton pad shows grime or makeup, it means your cleansing routine (even if you’re double-cleansing) may not be effective enough. Experiment with different methods. Everyone’s needs will be different. 💄I know some people like to use a Micellar water after cleansing if they think they haven’t removed all their makeup. ☁️So this product was definitely not a favorite as far as texture & feel. There are way better toners out there... I think I really couldn’t help but compare it to LANEIGE - Cream Skin Toner & Moisturizer ($33/5 oz) but that was such a winner for me & a unique product. Check out my previous review & aLANEIGE - Cream Skin Mistreview is coming 🔜 Are toners a part of your routine? What’s your current fav? #CherieCreator 🍒🧊
Cosrx cotton rounds vs. Shiseido facial cotton🤍
☁️I ditched drugstore cotton pads a long time ago, I could never consistently find ones that didn’t flake & shred fibers onto my face. I have sensitive eyes & I absolutely hate getting anything stuck in there, I’m sure we all do. I don’t wear makeup much anymore, but having cotton pads that don’t shed or fall apart is so crucial for removing eye makeup! I mostly use cotton pads for my toning step. A good cotton pad will be absorbent, but not too much to be able to dispense your products across your face. 💦Pro Tip: If your cotton pads still look dirty or has traces of makeup after toning, this means your cleansing routine isn’t cutting it. Toning is not meant to further clean your skin after cleansing. Rather, toner meant to help rebalance skin & prepare it for your following hydration/moisture routine. 🚰 Toner is an important for me because I’m not super happy with my tap water quality. If I wouldn’t drink, I’m not thrilled about washing my face with it, but I’m not bougie enough to wash with Évian®😭 SHISEIDO - SHISEIDO Facial Cotton $12/165 pads Description from Shiseido: This exclusive Facial Cotton is 100% natural and uniquely manufactured for a consistent soft, smooth texture. Allows for maximum absorption and assists in the application of Shiseido softeners. 165 sheets per pack. My review: I’ve been using these & loving them for years. It seemed like such a splurge to me when I first switched, but such an upgrade, I never looked back. They’re about 7 cents each, so it’s honestly not that bad if you’re sick of buying random cotton pads at Target/Walmart. (I checked prices a few mainstream brands like Equate & Q-Tips, which range from about 2-5 cents per) These are super soft! It doesn’t soak up too much product even though they’re plush, it gives it right back to, making toner an effective & enjoyable experience. I love they have no type of seam or edge, so there’s nothing but soft, fluffy texture☁️ COSRX - Pure 100% Cotton Rounds $12/80 pads Description from Cosrx: Soft, round cotton pad made of wavy patterned 100% cotton to mildly wipe skin without irritation. My review: Every once in a while I forget to add my usual Shiseido facial cotton to a Sephora order, so I decided to try something new in a Soko Glam order. These are double sided, one side is textured, one smooth. Technically these are twice as expensive per pad as Shiseido. Some of you may like the textured side for removing makeup or applying certain products, but I personally didn’t find it as an added plus. It’s not rough, but the smooth side isn’t as soft as Shiseido. They perform fine, but overall I like the softer, plush texture of Shiseido better. Cosrx has little seam edges I don’t care for. Results: Both held up equally well in all my tests. Swipe through the photos. I tried to see how much roughing up they could take & if they would flake or fall apart-they didn’t. Cosrx pads are slightly stronger, but both broke eventually💧

🎀(mostly) HAIR-CARE haul from Ulta💦
📦Got my recent order from Ulta today. I love that they have Afterpay as a payment option! I’m still trying to help get my bfs dry hair under control, so we’ve been trying a lot of new hair products... REDKEN - All Soft Heavy Cream Super Treatment $22/8.5 oz 🔐🧡This is an old favorite of mine that I’ve returned to time & time again, even when I was a broke raggedy at-home bleach blonde. Smells really good, very infectious, I’ve always received a lot of compliments. It’s an expensive salon type scent, but richer & deeper. In the warm Amber & Vanilla family. The formula is meant to be used after rinsing shampoo, for 5-15 minutes. It says to apply to towel dried hair, but I’ve honestly never done that, just tried to make sure my hair wasn’t full of water... You can totally use it for longer though. 🪴The formula contains repairing hydrolyzed plant-based proteins & nourishing Argan oil. I can’t wait to get back into this stuff, after trying so many different things for my bf’s hair, I remembered this treatment I used to buy constantly. I really hope it works for him too. Full ingredients of every product in the slides. OUAI - Super Dry Shampoo$14/2 oz (size shown here) OR $24/4.5 oz Though both of our hair types are on the dry side our current climate (mountains, snow) I haven’t had a dry shampoo on hand in a while & sometimes roots need a little sprucing up before we go into town. I’ve heard good things about this one! I can already tell it smells expensive! Nature Lab. - Perfect Volume Texture Mist$12/4 oz I actually bought this for my bf, but I’ll definitely try it too😚i wanted him to try it after I read@LindseyRR‘s review!💕the bottle is so cute & it’s a great price. Has a lovely delicate floral/fruity fragrance. HONEST - Lip Crayon Sheer Lush$13/.105 oz Shade: Sheer Blossom 🌸 🖍I hadn’t tried an Honest Beauty product in at least a couple years... I’m a huge Jessica Alba fan, but admit I haven’t really been that intrigued by her beauty line. I wanted to get a little pick me up & this seemed cute. Have you guys tried any of these? What was your experience? I’ll be posting full reviews on everything here 🔜 💋nay #CherieCreator 🍒
The Ouai for Curly Hair
I've been testing out a few Ouai products they sent me a while ago for my curls to see how they do. So far I'm liking the Leave-in Conditioner for refreshing my hair and the Finishing Creme for styling! They smell AMAZING! I'm not a big dry shampoo girl since my scalp is dry rather then oily, so curly girls tell me how you use dry shampoo for your hair. Have you guys tried Ouai products before? What are your faves? I think I want to they their new treatments masks next. Products: * OUAI - Finishing Creme * OUAI - Super Dry Shampoo * OUAI - OUAI Leave-In Conditioner *OUAI - Rose Hair & Body Oil * OUAI - OUAI Hair Oil
𝐅𝐎𝐔𝐑 perfect products for your eyes!
👀 Eye see you. Did you know? Boscia carries 𝐅𝐎𝐔𝐑 different products for your eyes. · 𝑽𝒆𝒈𝒂𝒏 𝑪𝒐𝒍𝒍𝒂𝒈𝒆𝒏 𝑴𝒊𝒄𝒓𝒐𝒄𝒓𝒚𝒔𝒕𝒂𝒍 𝑬𝒚𝒆 𝑴𝒂𝒔𝒌 boscia - Vegan Collagen Microcrystal Eye Mask 𝑽𝒆𝒈𝒂𝒏 𝑪𝒐𝒍𝒍𝒂𝒈𝒆𝒏 𝑴𝒊𝒄𝒓𝒐𝒄𝒓𝒚𝒔𝒕𝒂𝒍 𝑬𝒚𝒆 𝑴𝒂𝒔𝒌 - contains 900 microcrystals enriched with a super-blend of Vegetable Collagen, Hyaluronic Acid and Argireline Peptide. A box will come with 2 pairs so I find this one to be more of a special treat product. Wear this mask overnight before an important event and you will wake up with brighter, smoother, less puffier under eyes. · 𝑷𝒆𝒑𝒕𝒊𝒅𝒆 𝑻𝒓𝒊𝒐 𝑬𝒚𝒆 𝑪𝒓𝒆𝒂𝒎 boscia - Peptide Trio Eye Cream 𝑷𝒆𝒑𝒕𝒊𝒅𝒆 𝑻𝒓𝒊𝒐 𝑬𝒚𝒆 𝑪𝒓𝒆𝒂𝒎 - has a rich, creamy texture. And even with it's thick texture, it sinks into the skin well and doesn't give me any milia. This one targets fine lines and wrinkles and I love using this during the evenings to keep my skin well hydrated and nourished. · 𝑰𝒏𝒅𝒊𝒈𝒐 𝑬𝒚𝒆 𝑪𝒓𝒆𝒂𝒎 boscia - Indigo Eye Cream 𝑰𝒏𝒅𝒊𝒈𝒐 𝑬𝒚𝒆 𝑪𝒓𝒆𝒂𝒎 - one of my favorite eye creams to use in the mornings. This baby will help to target dark circles by color correcting your under eye area and give you a nice glowy look. · 𝑬𝒏𝒍𝒊𝒗𝒆𝒏𝒊𝒏𝒈 𝑨𝒎𝒊𝒏𝒐-𝑨𝑮 𝑬𝒚𝒆 𝑻𝒓𝒆𝒂𝒕𝒎𝒆𝒏𝒕 boscia - Enlivening Amino-AG Eye Treatment 𝑬𝒏𝒍𝒊𝒗𝒆𝒏𝒊𝒏𝒈 𝑨𝒎𝒊𝒏𝒐-𝑨𝑮 𝑬𝒚𝒆 𝑻𝒓𝒆𝒂𝒕𝒎𝒆𝒏𝒕 - has a soft, gel texture that feels very silky. It helps to target puffiness and is so moisturizing on the skin. This one is also great for the AM but sometimes I like to use it in the evenings, too. Depending on my mood, I'll alternate this with the other 2 creams. Of course, nobody really needs 35 eye creams in their lives but, I was kindly gifted all of these from the brand so why not indulge in them especially since they are all such beautiful products, you know?! I'm spoiled (I know) so don't make me choose just one now. 😂😅 Anyhow! Eye 👁 hope you have a nice day! I also totally meant to post this yesterday on #texturetuesday but that long holiday weekend has me all confused on what day of the week it is, lol!

Mini brand review ✨ Glow Recipe 🍉
Yay for bringing back mini brand reviews! 🥰 This is where I do a couple sentences on every product I’ve tried from a brand. If you have any questions or want an in depth review on a product comment below! GLOW RECIPE - Avocado Melt Retinol Eye Sleeping Mask - I love this! Creamy formula melts into the skin without being too heavy. Very hydrating but I would only use 2-3x a night. Good beginner retinol. GLOW RECIPE - Watermelon Glow Jelly Sheet Mask- They don’t make this anymore but I did like it! A hydrogel sheet mask that felt resfreshing on the skin. I didn’t see many benefits though. GLOW RECIPE - Watermelon + AHA Glow Sleeping Mask - The texture is not for everyone but I like it! It’s a little goopy but it does absorb into the skin once worked in. It smells like watermelon jolly ranchers. I would say oily skin only and only she 2-3x a week but I loved the mild exfoliation. GLOW RECIPE - Watermelon Glow Pink Juice Moisturizer - I love this for oily skin! Smells like the sleeping mask but not as strong. Adds a lot of hydration without feeling heavy or sticky. GLOW RECIPE - Limited Edition Lip Pop Duo - I feel like it’s overpriced for what it is but if you’re interested it’s a nice product. It has a waxy feel but it’s very lightweight and nourishing. Both smell AMAZING!! Has mild exfoliation that doesn’t stay long on the lips and a really pretty natural tint. GLOW RECIPE - Watermelon Glow Niacinamide Dew Drops - Again, over priced for what it is but I still like it. The serum feels amazing on the skin and gives all the benefits on niacinamide. Smells like watermelon but it’s a lot fainter than their other products. It doesn’t give a “glow” like they claim though. It’s more a “dolphin” skin effect that doesn’t last long. I would not use over make up though as it has your typical serum consistency.
Lightweight but Hydrating! Make you glow✨
I have been devoted to this wonderful GLOW RECIPE - Watermelon Glow Pink Juice Moisturizer for the last 10 days and I have nothing but great things to say about it. #friyayfaves This was not the first @glowrecipe product I’ve tried and featured in my page. In fact, before trying this, I was very much in love with the Watermelon Glow Toner. #hereweglow Just like the toner, this moisturizer smells delicious and fresh. It is made up of 90% watermelon juice, that is packed with antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties; and other ingredients such as hyaluronic acid, jasmine and peony extract. It has a beautiful glass packaging that comes with a pump. The texture is a very lightweight gel that is pink in color. It is silky, smooth and a little bit runny unlike traditional moisturizers. Once applied, it has a cooling, refreshing effect and makes my skin so soft and glowing. It is fast-absorbing and fairly moisturizing, even for my dry skin (note that I also use essences and serums in my routine). I also have sensitive, acne prone skin, but it did not irritate my skin or clogged up my pores. I used 2-3 pumps during the daytime, and at night I supplement it with a sleeping mask (for extra hydration on colder nights). Because it is non-sticky and applies very nicely, it can also serve as a primer. I’ve tried it under makeup a few times (just to test it out) and it makes my skin so healthy looking. I really enjoy this moisturizer and I think it will be good for all skin types.
Todays features mainly Farmacy skincare ♥️ and one product from glow recipe. All lovely products and work differently. I just love the texture of the farmacy sleep tight firming night balm, it's a balm that turns into an oil as you rub it in and you apply it at night, it's extremely Hydrating. I also am obsessed with the consistency of the honey drop lightweight moisturizer. It has little cupuacu butter beads in it and you can see them in the jar it's so neat. The honey potion antioxidant hydration mask is a beautiful product as well, its a warming honey mask that turns into a white cream as you rub it on the skin and you leave it on for 10-15 mins. I love how my skin feels afterwards. The green clean cleansing balm is one of the best cleansing balm I've ever tried. It's gentle and smells wonderful, it doesn't burn or irritate my eyes and removes all my makeup, it's definitely a wonderful product. The glow recipe watermelon glow sleeping mask is a jelly like texture moisturizer that you apply at night over your regular moisturizer and sleep with it on. I love how Hydrating this mask is, plus it smells delicious. 🍉 farmacy green clean cleansing balm farmacy sleep tight firming night Balm farmacy honey drop lightweight moisturizer farmacy honey potion antioxidant Hydration mask glowrecipe watermelon glow sleeping mask
FARMACY-Green Clean Makeup Removing Cleansing Balm
💤 Sleeping Masks💤I haven’t been shy about my love for sleeping masks! But I thought I’d share my thoughts on a few popular ones. - glowrecipe Avocado Melt Sleeping Mask. Admittedly the cutest of them all. Though definitely the thickest. Really only need a couple dabs. Anymore would just be wiped off on your pillow. Light, fruity scent. What’s amazing about this mask is my skin the next morning doesn’t need a thing! It’s soft, hydrated, and glowy. I might splash some water on my face, but there is no next day residue or extra moisture need. It is heavy, so if you aren’t a fan of that it won’t be for you. - belif Aqua Bomb Sleeping mask. The lightest of them all. Bouncy texture that feels like nothing on the skin. But don’t let that fool you. She’s still a powerhouse! Wasn’t sure how it work when I put it on at night. But was surprised to wake up with hydrated skin. Though it may not be perfect for very dry skin. But a great option for normal oily types. - youthtothepeople Superberry Hydrate Glow and Dream Mask. One of my favs ATM. I’m pretty sure this was designed for me. Vitamin C and Hyaluronic Acid. Plus squalane and fruit extracts. What else can you want? I’ve been using this every night during these cold days and it has been saving my skin. Also smells like Mimosas. Thicker, but nothing different than a good thick moisturizer. - laneige Water Sleeping Mask. One of the first ones I’ve tried. A gel cream consistency with a refreshing scent. Also very light on the skin. It’s a bit more hydrating than the Belif one, but still great for a variety of skin types. Also at $25 it’s a steal.

Fun, Luxe, & Beautiful Glow✨✨
Sooo Worth it! Sorry for the long review🙃 This is the limited edition “to all the boys” set from Valentine’s Day, but the watermelon formula is the same as the OG packaging. Speaking of packaging, I am such a pink girl and I adore the packaging💕 Let’s start with the watermelon mist. The watermelon mist is a very fine fog-like mist. I like this because it actually helps the product to last longer than other mists. I only do two pumps and my face is fully enveloped is this amazing spray.. The smell of the mist & mask both smell just like watermelon. It’s a subtle smell but it’s not too subtle to where you can barely smell it. I was surprised at how moisturized my face was with this mist. Mist has watermelon, hyaluronic acid & hibiscus which helps to keep acne at bay while moisturizing. It’s a wonderful refresher throughout the day if needed. With me, all I do is use it in the morning and my skin is happy and glowing all day long. The mask is equally amazing. The mask is formulated with watermelon, hyaluronic acid, and AHA in this order. You can use the mask as a quick 30min or All-nighter. For the 30min mask its says to apply a very thick coat on the face & then wash it off. I don’t have a spatula so I wipe a baby spoon off with alcohol & then I use 2-3 scoops to layer on my face. Normally I just use this as an All-nighter mask. It only takes one scoop to cover me face in a thin layer. It says a thin layer is all you need. I was amazed at how well this works as an all-nighter mask. Once it dries, it doesn’t rub off on pillows, blankets, anything. It literally stays on all night and when I woke up the next morning I could see that the mask was already peeling a little bit from the “gentle exfoliation in which the instructions read” and after I washed it off my skin felt soo soft and smooth. Not dry either. I follow up with the watermelon mist and I’m glowing all day long. I really love this set. I don’t have to worry about a new pimple forming on my face from using the products, it’s gentle, and I love the cute little jelly bag that it comes with too. All in all the Glow Recipe Watermelon products speak for themselves. It talks the talk and walks the walk. It is No wonder that they are cult favorites. 🍉 🍉 GLOW RECIPE - Netflix To All the Boys The Love Letter Set 2-Piece Kit
GLOW RECIPE-Netflix To All the Boys The Love Letter Set 2-Piece Kit
Watermelon Glow 😍
These three are some of my favorite purchases from 2019. All 3 products are from Glow Recipes watermelon collection! This stuff smells amazing! 😍😍 the spray is so fine and I am obsessed. This was my first purchase. I wish all facial sprays were this fine. The sleeping mask is also amazing. I had no idea how a sleeping mask would work and if it would leave a mess. This had no residue on pillow or anything. The product soaks into your skin so well and if there is any left over it peels right off. I also am obsessed with the moisturizer because it is so light but so moisturizing. It also smells amazing. Do yourself a favor and go check these out at Sephora I highly recommend it!
GLOW RECIPE-Watermelon + AHA Glow Sleeping Mask
An avocado thanksss 🥑
GLOW RECIPE - Avocado Melt Sleeping Mask Set This retinol sleeping mask includes encapsulated retinol (an innovative form of retinol that releases antioxidants over time and allows skin to appears firmer, smoother and brighter. Also keeps skin hydrated ), avocado,and PHA (polyhydroxy acid provides a gentle exfoliation) Here are my thoughts on this product: * leaves my skin feeling so smooth! * Does not cause irritation at all * Very hydrating * Can be used as a quick facial and an overnight mask * My skin always looks brighter the next morning * Easy to apply (I just use my fingers and rub it in like a moisturizer) This is definitely a mask that I will be repurchasing!

Dry/Dehydrated Skin Routine
Sometimes when I use too many clay masks or skip my skincare routine a few times (hey, life happens) my skin can get super dehydrated. In those instances, I like to use a simple, but effective routine to infuse hydration into my skin. This can be used at any time, and I do it whenever I need to (if my skin is super dry, I’ll even do this a few days in a row). Step 1 – Cleanse fresh - Soy Makeup Removing Face Wash I always start with a cleanser, and the Fresh Soy Face Cleanser is my favorite. It is very gentle, and effective. It has a light cucumber scent, which doesn’t bother me at all, I quite like it. I find that when my skin is dry, it tends to overproduce oils, so I like to cleanse it well, but I also want to make sure my cleanser isn’t stripping my skin. Step 2 – Hydrating Mist YOUTH TO THE PEOPLE - Adaptogen Soothe + Hydrate Activated Mist with Reishi + Ashwagandha I have a lot of face mists that I filter between, but this YTTP Adaptogen Mist is my current favorite/go-to. This one is very hydrating and soothing and gives an extra layer of hydration before I go in for my hydrating mask. Because hydrating masks usually form an occlusive later over your skin, using a mist before will give an extra boost of hydration. Step 3 – Hydrating/Soothing Mask BIODERMA - Sensibio Mask If my skin is feeling both stressed and dehydrated, I like to go for this Bioderma Mask as it is so soothing and also makes my skin feel plump. This has a super simple formulation that is fragrance free with very hydrating ingredients, so it always does the trick for my skin!
