Good Molecules Silicone-Free Priming Moisturizer
The GOOD MOLECULES - Silicone-Free Priming Moisturizer has quickly become one of my favorite pre-make up moisturizers. I’ve been using it for almost two months now and I still have a lot of product left. Good Molecules claims that this moisturizer strengthens, conditions, and protects the skin from environmental aggressors while creating a smooth, plumped base for make up. It contains a plant based natural alternative to silicone, macadamia seed oil, shea butter, and essential fatty acids from olive oil. -fragrance free -alcohol free -mineral oil free -cruelty free -vegan With having oily skin normally I stick to gel moisturizers in the morning but I’ve been using this for almost two months with no problems. I like the fact that it is more of a lightweight formula so it doesn’t feel heavy on the face for daytime wear. I was confused by the “plumped up” claims at first until I actually applied the product and it oddly does make your face feel more plump (in the best way!). It creates a smooth base while hydrating the skin. From an esthetician point of view I also love the fact that it’s fragrance free! I usually have to wear a full face of make up for 9+ hours most days and I know this base has me prepped without feeling greasy off the bat. I can also be acne prone and I’ve experienced zero break outs which I’m very happy about. This is something I will purchase in the future and would recommend to all skin types, even oily like myself. 🖤 /*pr gifted

It Cosmetics CC+ Cream with SPF 50 💙
You ever have that one foundation that you do like but it just isn’t for you? That’s how I feel about the original it Cosmetics - CC+ Cream with SPF 50+ They claim it’s a full coverage foundation that hydrates, is your physical sunscreen, brightens, is a poreless primer, a dark spot corrector, and a moisturizer. Initially I really liked the application. The foundation smooths right on and is full coverage. A little goes a long way and it does feel a little moisturizing (though I wouldn’t use it as your moisturizer at all). That being said the color does oxidize after application and turns a little orange which I’m not happy about. I think if you have dry skin this would be an absolutely perfect full coverage foundation but I have oily skin and that meant every time I touched my face (or hit me head on a displayer 😂) the foundation transferred off. It was almost a little cakey on me throughout the day (which is odd because I’ve seen coworkers wear it and it looks beautiful on them). It didn’t feel heavy but it did settle into my pores and you could even see where my hair blew on my face and dragged my foundation around. Sadly for my oily skin this didn’t work. I picked up the CC+ Matte version in hopes maybe that won’t transfer as much. Oddly as well the shade Fair (which I have in both) is a little darker in the matte version. All in all I think it’s a good foundation, it’s just not for me.

Farmacy Clean Bee Cleanser 🐝
The FARMACY - Clean Bee Ultra Gentle Facial Cleanser is one of my favorite cleansers! Farmacy claims its is a gentle, soothing gel facial cleanser that removes make up while adding hydration. It is formulated for all skin types and addresses fullness and uneven texture. It also has the Clean at Sephora seal. Contains: Hyaluronic acid to add moisture into the skin Honey for soothing the skin, delivering antioxidants, and adding moisture A while back I was looking to switch my skincare routine over to one without so many harsh ingredients and this cleanser was one I leaned towards. The pump makes it very easy to use and as someone with oily skin I love the gel formula. I can’t attest to taking off make up completely because I do go in with a cleansing balm first but it does get off all the left over make up after that step. It does have a faint smell (and that’s my only real complaint about it. There is fragrance but it’s a wash off treatment so it’s not as bad as a leave on treatment for the skin. I still wish they’d formulate without it though) but I don’t mind it. I don’t feel like it strips my skin after use as it doesn’t feel tight or dry afterwards. I’m not sure for the hydration claims but I think it’s an effective, “clean” cleanser that doesn’t strip. I would recommend this to anyone looking for a “clean” alternative for a cleanser. I’ve experienced zero break outs or irritation with this product. #cherieconversations

MOROCCANOIL Intense Hydrating Mask 💙
This argan-oil mask claims to improve hair hydration, texture, elasticity, shine, and manageability. It is recommended for more medium to thick hair. Now I have very thick, very wavy, damaged, and color treated hair. Lately it has been so insanely dry (especially on my ends). Immediately upon scooping some out I really liked the texture of the product. It was very creamy and was easy to distribute through my hair (which has been such a pain lately when it’s wet). I immediately noticed it is fragrances which I don’t care for much but I feel like it isn’t the biggest deal. I left it on my hair for seven minutes and rinsed. It rinsed out of my hair very easily as well without leaving my shower slippery which I appreciated. Normally when I wash the conditioner out of my hair it still feels very dry when wet but I did feel a difference of it being less dry feeling with this. When I blow dried my hair is definitely felt a lot softer and bouncier. It didn’t weigh my hair down or make it feel greasy. I could definitely tell a difference in my hair so I’m very very excited to keep trying it! Thank you for the great recommendation Megan. 🖤

Living Proof Color Care Conditioner
I have green colored hair and I try to do what I can to help preserve it. As much as I like living proof this really didn’t do much. I’m not really sure a conditioner can do much. I’d invest more in the shampoo. It didn’t really seem to hydrate my hair or help with the color at all. I wouldn’t recommend and don’t think the conditioner is worth it.

Dr. Jart+ Dermask Water Jet Vital Hydra Solution
I really enjoyed the Dr. Jart+ - Dermask Water Jet Vital Hydra Solution sheet mask! It’s like your typical sheet mask where it’s a fiber mask that you just apply to the face and leave on for 15-20 minutes. It fit nicely over the face, I only had to adjust it around my mouth which is typical for me for sheet masks. It felt very cool on the skin. It took around 20 minutes for the product to absorb. I still had to massage some of the essence in but for the most part the majority of it absorbed. I’ve been having really dry skin because of the dry winter and this helped give a good boost of hydration. I really liked it and would purchase again and recommend.

Summer Fridays Jet Lag
SUMMER FRIDAYS - Jet Lag Mask this is a hydrating cream face mask featuring proven, skin-loving ingredients that supposedly delivers rich hydration and a radiant complexion in just one application. I feel like I’m the last person on planet earth to try this but because Cherie kindly gifted this to me, I am finally able to share my thoughts on it! I’ve been using this for almost 3 weeks and I have to say that I’m impressed by how multi-functional this product is. it serves as a moisturizer, a mask & a primer all-in-one! it’s created for all skin types including sensitive & oily skin 💫 as far as my experience, I’ve thoroughly enjoyed using this — I love that I can take it with me while traveling and have it serve as both a skincare & makeup product. this does have a thicker consistency when first applied but it absorbs into the skin nicely when it’s rubbed in. it definitely is a very hydrating product which makes it a great moisturizer for the winter time. but I need to mention how much I truly love this as a primer — it gives skin a luminous finish when worn with makeup and I live for it 🤩 while this isn’t cheap, costing $48 for 2.25 fl oz, I do think it’s worth the price because of how many ways it can be used

💦Dr. Jart+ Dermask💦
Dr. Jart+ - Dermask Water Jet Vital Hydra Solution About me 🤗 and the product 💦Skin type/skin tone I have combination skin. My t-zone is in the range of normal to oily skin and I have dry skin on my cheeks. My skin tone is warm ivory with a slight reddish discoloration in my cheeks 🧐I also have some freckles across my cheeks and my nose bridge. 💦Product function The product claims to moisturize and revitalize the skin by using ingredients such as Aquaxyl and super vital complex. 💦Texture/consistency The sheet is extremely thin but has so much essence! 🤪The essence has a jelly consistency and the sheet is so soft that it feels like it melts right onto the skin when it is applied 🤤 💦Packaging The packaging is a standard one use facial mask pack. After tearing it open, the face mask has a film which is to be removed before applying. Beauty story📖 💦Overall experience I was lucky enough and extremely grateful that I got an amazing box from @cherie 💕. This mask was in the box and I used it right away! The mask has a great cutout and fits perfectly on my face which makes it super easy to make the sheet wrinkle free on my face. The formula is also super soothing and because of the thick consistency, the mask sticks onto the face really well and doesn’t slip or slide off at all. It feels like a second layer of skin👌🏻. It is so calming and soothing and has a hydrating and cooling effect☺️. There was absolutely no irritation on my sensitive skin after testing it out for 10 min so i used it for the full 20 min and glad I did since even after taking it off, there was no irritation at all. I noticed that after about 10 min, all the excess essence that was on the sheet was absorbed into my skin and my skin felt so cooled! Even after the 20 min were up, the sheet was still moist 💦and did not dry out. 💦Verdict ❤️❤️ I really liked this sheet mask! When I took off the sheet and squeezed it there was still soooo much essence! I slathered that on my skin and tried to pat it in. Because of the enormous amount of thick essence, it took longer for all of it to absorb into my skin. It took a whole 20 min for all the essence to be absorbed in. It left my skin feeling extremely hydrated and looking soft and shiny✨. My skin did feel slightly sticky but it felt super bouncy so not really complaining about that. I did end up washing💧 my face again though so I can continue with my night routine of toner, serums and moisturizers. 💦Recommend?✅✅ I absolutely recommend this to normal-dry skinned peeps and sensitive and acne prone skin since it provided sooo much hydration without clogging up my pores and causing a breakout. There was also absolutely no irritation on my sensitive so I would highly recommend this product!!💕 💦Worth it?💰 I got this product for free from a giveaway but it is worth $6 so I feel like it is totally worth it! This product does everything it claims to do and is so comfortable on the skin. So absolutely worth the time and money!

! EXTREMELY HIGH ACID CONCENTRATIONS, PROCEED AT YOUR OWN RISK ! *gifted YOUTH TO THE PEOPLE - Kombucha + 11% AHA Exfoliation Power Toner This power toner is exactly what it claims to be - extremely powerful, very exfoliating. With a whole 11% AHA, you really have to ease your way in. I started with once a week, and results were immediate - smoother, brighter skin overnight. Literally. As I said, easing in is crucial, unless you have a history of using strong acids and a built up tolerance to them. I had not used acids that strong prior to this power toner, so I started off with using it once a week and worked up to every other day. It has a watery texture, and a very faint yellowy tint. It doesn’t sting upon application like many highly acidic products do. It absorbs very nicely, but is slightly sticky. However, after I apply the next few steps of my routine (specifically moisturizer), the stickiness goes away. A single bottle has been lasting me so long, and if you use it once a week, it will last even longer. The dispenser is very generous, so be careful when dabbing onto your pad!

My GO-TO mascaras for…
Hey beauties, how many mascaras do you have in your rotation? For me, I already have 3 in my makeup pouch. Let me introduce you these three mascaras i’ve tried to wear for different occasions! 1⃣️ HR LASH QUEEN FELINE BLACKS This one is a little bit pricy，but I'm sure it's better than other drugstore mascaras, the brush is soft and bushy, it creates natural, separated, feathery lashes with no flakes or smudges. The color is classic black, which is easily cope with a variety of occasions, i often use it in my workdays, my eyes always look more abstruse and bright after applying it，and i'm very satisfied with this result. 2⃣️Colourpop BFF mascara Super beautiful and unique mascara in the pink shade! I like it just because it is so unusual but not exaggerated at all if you applied it to the lower lashes. i think it is suitable for dating & party ! It doesn't look pink from a long distance, but then in certain lighting occasion you would suddenly notice the pink color. And people are surprised "hey you have pink eyelashes!" 3⃣️DECORA GIRL Brown Mascara I love the pigmentation and formula of DECORA GIRL Mascara. This is a Japanese brand which has a lot of shades. I think the color Brown is more lively than the black one, so i often wear it in my family gathering. As it goes on easily and dry fast, I can easily finish it even in a very short time, I think many people will get to love it.
Hydrating Sleeping Mask!
With all the hype that's been going on with Glowrecipe's watermelon mask I gave in and decided to try it. I love the smell and its consistency. I was actually a bit hesitant because I did not like the idea of an overnight mask because I immediately imagined the mess it would make on my pillows, on my bed, on my hair ( you get the idea) but surprisingly it wasn't messy at all. I love how the mask feels on my face. The moment you put it on it gives you that cool good feeling of hydration. It dries on your face pretty quickly but the hydration feels do not go away. It's also not tacky in my opinion. The mask might peel a little here and there but not much and when I wash it off in the morning I can feel the sofness of my skin. I am impressed. Seriously.

Key ingredients: The Inkey List Sea Kelp Serum
You may or may not have seen a ton of hype about this product on Instagram. THE inkey LIST - Sea Kelp Serum It costs $10 and has 2 highlighted ingredients: sea kelp extract and a malachite mineral complex. It’s a pretty simple ingredient list so I thought I would test it out in my routine for a couple of weeks. The ingredient claims: -Sea kelp extract: reduce and protect the skin from environmental pollutants -Malachite mineral complex: detoxify skin & deliver antioxidants It’s a lightweight serum advertised to work on all skin types for anti-aging benefits. Unfortunately this serum really set off my skin. When I’m trying to new product I use a basic routine full of products I know don’t irritate my skin so I KNOW the new product is the culprit. This caused a series of tiny bumps around my eye area and whiteheads on my forehead which is so random. I also must mention the smell...god, it’s awful. It smells like dirt, very earthy but in the worst way. When I used this serum I applied it after my hyaluronic acid serum but before any facial oils or moisturizers. Honestly if you have tough skin and aren’t sensitive to natural ingredients this will probably work great for you. It’s $10 for 1oz so you won’t be losing a lot of money if you end up not liking it, but it’s risky if you’re more on the sensitive skin train like me. I have to rate it 2/5 stars for my overall experience, however the price point is good and it absorbs well into the skin. Another product that did not live up to the hype.
