Hydrating Morning Routine

avatar
PielDeMiel
1) Essence Toner — It preps my skin for the rest of the routine. Not necessary but I can always tell when I don’t use it. Skin feels hydrated immediately after use. 2) Hydrating Toner - It adds hydration to my skin so I can seal it in with moisturizer later. Great trick for dry skin! It doesn’t have any fragrance and it’s very absorbing. 3) Vitamin C serum - Helps brighten up skin and Possibly help sunscreen work better** . Lovely spread and absorbs moderately fast into skin. 4) Moisturizing combo mix of All the Feels Oil mixed with Moisturizing Milk - I like to make concoctions like this one for a leveled up moisturizer. Both are fragrance free and moisturize my skin perfectly. The Muji milk has a very slightly sticky feel, but I don’t mind it. Works great under skin. 5) Protect your skin with @cerave Tinted Sunscreen SPF 30 - I prefer mineral sunscreens and I’m in love with this one atm- no white cast for my skin tone. Full review of this product coming up.

simplicity is key?
life can very easily get in the way sometimes. this can be so severe that, at least in my case, i end up sacrificing things like my skincare routine or other self care, thus making my skin worse and giving me ANOTHER reason to be stressed out. this being said, i’ve abandoned a lot of steps of my routines (which were sometimes 6 steps long!!) to help make my routine quicker and more manageable. am + pm i use these products in this order: cleanse: Milk MAKEUP - Vegan Milk Cleanser or THE inkey LIST - Salicylic Acid Acne + Pore Cleanser tone: THE inkey LIST - Glycolic Acid Exfoliating Toner (i use this every other night) serum/oil: e.l.f. - All the Feels Facial Oil eye cream: zero by skin academy (tried adding this as a new item multiple times but i give up typing it all in every time) moisturizer: e.l.f. - Happy Hydration Cream or Milk MAKEUP - Vegan Milk Moisturizer (i usually opt for the milk one at night as it is thicker and heavier) spot treatment: THE inkey LIST - Succinic Acid Acne Treatment (not pictured) sunscreen: live clean mineral face sunscreen SPF 45 #cheriecreator

SKIN HIT KIT - first impressions
e.l.f. - Skin Hit Kit for $26 CAD, elf sells a kit of many of their cannabis-infused skincare minis which i was so eager to try! after trying everything in the kit, i have some thoughts! e.l.f. - Puff Puff Primer this primer feels really nice on the skin and adds a nice additional layer of moisture. my makeup also sits very nicely on top of it. however, i haven’t noticed any additional benefits such as pore shrinking or adding to the overall finish of the skin (i.e. matte or dewy). this is a perfect travel-size item that i would definitely bring with me overnight (if there was anything to go right now) e.l.f. - All the Feels Facial Oil i really enjoy this facial oil. it is non-scented and it absorbs into the skin almost immediately. it leaves my skin feeling more supple and hydrated even hours after applying. i’m a huge fan and look forward to using the rest of this. e.l.f. - Calm Balm this lip balm is pretty standard but nice nonetheless. it has no flavour or scent which i like, and has a kind of oily/vaseline texture. to me this means it sort of feels like it’s sitting on top of the lips rather than penetrating them for optimal moisture, but in my experience so far it is definitely nourishing. e.l.f. - Happy Hydration Cream this is different from the holy hydration cream as it is more of a gel-texture, but delivers a similar boost of moisture to the skin. it feels slightly greasier if i’m being totally honest, but regardless i really like it! overall, the value of this set is great and i have almost exclusively positive things to say about all of the products inside. i will likely finish everything in this set, but will i repurchase any of them? we will have to wait to find out! thanks for reading!! #cheriecreator

Starting tretinoin and spironolactone
After 6 months of researching products and learning more about my skin and what works, I have finally found out the root cause of my acne. I feel like I’ve always had a good, consistent skincare routine. I’ve even made good lifestyle choices such as changing my pillow case every week, cutting out diary, limiting junk food, and drinking lots of water. However, I did not see any improvements with my skin. I mainly break out on my cheeks, chin, and jawline, especially when I’m on or about to start my period. I recently consulted a doctor for free thanks to my university’s student health services. She told me that this is hormonal for sure. I had been producing an excess of androgen hormones which lead to more oil production and eventually more acne. She prescribed me with spironolactone and tretinoin. I started taking these medications a few days ago. I think I’m in the purge period right now. I’m so glad I finally have closure on what has been causing my acne. I’ve never had serious acne problems in the past so this has been really frustrating. Current skincare routine: Morning: CeraVe - Foaming Facial Cleanser For Normal To Oily Skin CeraVe - Daily Moisturizing Lotion For Normal To Dry Skin CeraVe - Mineral Sunscreen Lotion SPF 30 for Face with Zinc Oxide Night: íUNIK - Calendula Complete Cleansing Oil CeraVe - Foaming Facial Cleanser For Normal To Oily Skin CeraVe - Daily Moisturizing Lotion For Normal To Dry Skin pura d'or - 100% Rosehip Seed Oil I also use the THE inkey LIST - Salicylic Acid Acne + Pore Cleanser every other night. If I need to subside a pimple, I would use Rael - Acne Healing Patch or the COSRX - Cosrx Acne Pimple Master Patch I’ve been taking spironolactone every morning and applying my .025% tretinoin every other night. I’m giving my skin time to adjust to the tretinoin so I will start applying it nightly next week. For those who have taken spironolactone or tretinoin: how long did it take for you to see less breakouts? And can I still use my salicylic acid cleanser while on tretinoin?

My 2020 Top 5 💄🍒
PRODUCT : YOUTH TO THE PEOPLE - Superfood Cleanser Refill Youth To The People's Superfoods Cleanser was shockingly reviving, and not in any manner drying, as I'd foreseen because of a portion of the fixings. What I delighted in about the item the most, both due to and notwithstanding of its value point, was its capacity to truly last. I found the jug endured me a while, and a limited quantity makes a significant decent frothy foam when applied to effectively clammy skin. TREND : CeraVe - Mineral Sunscreen Lotion SPF 30 for Face with Zinc Oxide I’m loving this sunscreen with tinted texture 😍 MY BEST LOOK : i love natural look bc I don’t put makeup on everyday I love to be natural sunscreen on and moisturizer and that’s it . Im good to go . CeraVe - Mineral Sunscreen Lotion SPF 30 for Face with Zinc Oxide Neutrogena - Neutrogena Hydroboost Water Gel Moisturizer essence - Lash Princess False Lash Effect Mascara FAVORITE CREATOR ON CHERIE :@D.Bennett@DermDoctor bc I’m very inspired by them and started more taking care of my skin and skincare product with ingredients to . SOMETHING I LEARNED: when I started cherie and learned few things ingredients list , product info and do’s or don’t about my skincare and makeup 💄.

Skin Care Products I use Regularly
Can you please tell me which product I should stop using and recommend which new products I should try? I have very oily skin but my skin tends to get irritated and dehydrated after I cleanse it. All the products I’ve been using help me with my acne and blackhead problems and my new goal is to minimize my pores and to have healthy clear skin. Thank you!

My 7 Skin Method Products:
**If your not sure what the 7-skin method is refer to my Korean 7-Skin Method post** BIODERMA - SensibioTonique pixi - Glow Tonic I just started using these but so far so good!! Bioderma is amazing my skin loves it...and this tonic can be used by sensitive types it is super gentle, lightweight and absorbs easily!! It contains water + Glycerin (a humectant) so you are definitely getting hydration from this product. I’m sure this product is going to stick around for a while!! The Pixi toner has 5%glycolic acid...I know it may seem harsh but it’s pretty gentle on my oily dehydrated skin. But it can be irritable to sensitive skin types so I don’t recommend to sensitive skin types. By the way I don’t always use the exfoliating toner in my 7-Skin Method I only use it 2-3 time a week! As it is recommended with any exfoliating at max. My 7-skin method for the most part is comprised of 4 layers of hydration and 1-2 layer of exfoliant 2-3 times a week! When I don’t exfoliate I will layer Bioderma 4-7 times. Remember Hydrated skin is Healthy and Happy Skin!

Simplified My Skincare Routine
This is the best my skin has looked I think ever! My boyfriend actually commented on how good it looks (he doesn’t notice things like that). My skin looks brighter, my dark sports are less noticeable, I have less acne on my chin line, and the texture on my forehead is basically gone now. Here’s my routine: AM: Sometimes I cleanse in the morning. When I do I use:Aveeno - Calm + Restore Nourishing Oat Facial Cleanser I then use: Mad Hippie - Vitamin C Serum I recently started using this and it has made a WORLD of difference After vitamin C it is super import to use a sunscreen. I’ve been using: Krave - The Beet Shield PM: If I have done a workout or had work (12hr shift in the ER) I use: SMACNE - Acne Treatment 30 Day Kit If I have had an easy day I cleanse with the Aveeno mentioned above. Next I put on: e.l.f. - Holy Hydration! Face Cream - Fragrance Free then I’m all done! My review of the products: e.l.f. - Holy Hydration! Face Cream - Fragrance Free I’m not in love with this moisturizer but it gets the job done and is not crazy expensive. Put your recommendations below:) Krave - The Beet Shield I like this sunscreen it doesn’t leave a white cast and does not have a strong fragrance. It is a little oily which works for me during the winter but if you have very oily skin you might want to stay away. I gave it 4 stars because even though I like it, it is pretty expensive especially for the small package you get. SMACNE - Acne Treatment 30 Day Kit This has got be to where I am today! Look at my previous review to see how much it helped me. I can’t seem to completely get rid of it. It started becoming irritating to my skin during the winter months so I only use the cleanser 3-4 times a week and the treatment as a spot treatment on occasion. I would highly recommend to someone struggling with acne Aveeno - Calm + Restore Nourishing Oat Facial Cleanser have been really enjoy this cleanser for a light clean (I don’t wear makeup) Mad Hippie - Vitamin C Serum LOVE LOVE LOVE this is the only new thing I have added to my routine and it has made such a difference!!! Even my boyfriend has noticed how wonderful my skin looks and I my diet has no changed if anything it’s gotten worse. (These changes are after 2-3 weeks)

first impressions: MAD HIPPIE VITAMIN C 🍊
Mad Hippie - Vitamin C Serum I thought i’d try something new with the photos so I hope you like it ! I have been looking for ages for a good vitamin C serum that is also affordable as I have never used a vitamin C product before! I am utterly in shock at how amazing this product is after one use. 🍊 claims 🍊 tightens, brightens & smoothes the skin 🍊 key ingredients 🍊 vitamin c (antioxidant that helps reduce the appearance of discolouration, wrinkles and fine lines) vitamin e (protective antioxidant reduce wrinkles and discolouration) ferulic acid (antioxidant) hyaluronic acid (hydration and plumps the skin) konjac root powder (has MANY nutrients) grapefruit (antioxidant and has citric acid. acts as a natural exfoliant) chamomile extract (soothes and helps with redness and inflammation) clary sage (natural toner that helps avoid overly dry or overly oily skin) as you can see this is a whole packed filled ingredient list!! 🍊my thoughts 🍊 I used it in my night routine as I was so eager to try it out. it has a slight yellow colour to it and a thick-ish consistency. it went onto my skin so smoothly and soaked in very nicely. I woke up this morning to the softest skin ever. and when I mean softest, I truly do!! some uneven texture that I had on my face, completely gone, as well as improved dark spots. this was just in one night so I can’t wait to see the results in the near future. I will definitely let you all know how it goes! ULTA- $34USD for 1oz

new caudalie moisturizer review!
new caudalie moisturizer review!
I’ve been using this new moisturizer complimentary from caudalie in my pm routines lately! I’ve been using it for a bit, so I wanted to share my early thoughts on it!⁣ ⁣ It’s a lightweight consistency, not lighter than a water cream, but still packs in enough hydration for my skin. I have combo skin, and I worry that moisturizers won’t be enough for my dry spots, but will make my t-zone oilier. This moisturizer has actually been perfect for my skin type, as it hydrates but doesn’t leave me greasy!⁣ ⁣ This contains niacinimide, hyaluronic acid, and viniferine, which is 62x more affective than vitamin c. It’s a little pricey for a moisturizer, but keep reading to see why I think it’s worth it!⁣ ⁣ My skin tone looks brighter than it has in two months right now. This cream isn’t irritating or acne-inducing, but rather gentle and soothing. The texture is butter across my skin, and it has significantly improved my dark spots on my face. I was hesitant to think this was the savior, but as I haven’t added anything new to my routine in weeks, this has to be it. If my skin is particularly in need of help, I’ll follow up with their vinoperfect glycolic cream!⁣ ⁣ This runs at $59 USD, which is more than I would pay for most things. However, only using this at night will definitely prolong my time with this, and I might even repurchase this after I finish some creams! I’ll def make that call when I empty this ✨⁣

The scoop about Hyaluronic acid...
The scoop about Hyaluronic acid...
I feel like we all know what Hyaluronic acid is, but where does it go in your routine? Do you NEED a Hyaluronic acid product in your routine? Read on... Hyaluronic acid was one of those products that for the longest time I thought it wasn’t for me—my skin at the time was quite oily and I thought that by adding hydration in my routine, I would get more breakouts. Well, this isn’t the case at all! I love using an HA serum when I need a little boost or elasticity in my skin. The two products I love with HA as a main ingredient are: YOUTH TO THE PEOPLE - Superfood Air-Whip Moisture Cream The Ordinary - Hyaluronic Acid 2% + B5 I feel like the most common way we recognize Hyaluronic acid is in serum form. My favorite is from The Ordinary—it is a super lightweight serum that I find best works when applied on wet skin. If I try to use it on dry skin it gets super sticky! It takes about 5-10 mins to soak in (I don’t constantly rub it in—I have sensitive skin so constant contact is not good for me) and doesn’t pill at all. Also, it’s super budget friendly and is available at both Ulta and Sephora so it’s widely available and accessible. It’s a great starter HA for anyone interested in trying it. Another way we see HA is in moisturizers. This is a very important aspect and ingredient to look for in gel moisturizer formulas since many gel formulas are oil free—you’re missing out on key hydration and moisture. The addition of HA in those formulas sets up an experience where you’re not feeling tight or dry throughout the day. My favorite moisturizer with HA is from Youth to the People. It’s super lightweight and absorbs very easily. I usually use a facial oil on top of it to seal it all in. Beware: it smells heavily of kale/earthy scent so if you’re not into that then I wouldn’t recommend it. However, it doesn’t bother me since I expect it now. What’s your favorite HA product? I found these through trial and error with other products and brands!

I didn’t know I’d be this obsessed 😍
I didn’t know I’d be this obsessed 😍
I am utterly HEART EYES over this exfoliating serum! I have sensitive skin and am often hesitant on trying exfoliants. This was my first introduction to a chemical exfoliant and to say I’m obsessed is a down play. I started off using this product once a week and now I have a schedule of using it every weds+fri. There’s a slight tingle upon application and it lasts about 30secs at max. After application I go ahead and apply my Versed moisturizer. In the morning I feel plump, dewy, and fresh! VERSED - SKIN SOAK Rich Moisture Cream After about a month of use this product has helped the overall texture of my skin and I see a major difference in skin tone. I will definitely be repurchasing and highly recommend this product for my sensitive skin friends 💕 FARMACY - Honeymoon Glow Serum

Basic Morning Routine for Normal Skin
Basic Morning Routine for Normal Skin
For this routine, I used almost all gel products because they’re light-weight and don’t leave your skin feeling like you’ve just used 6 products. Plus, with it being summer I don’t like using anything too heavy. All of the above products are very gentle and hydrating and leave my skin with such a nice glow. I think this is great for those with normal-combination skin. Like I’ve said in previous posts, I always use hyaluronic acid after cleansing my face. What’s better than waking up and starting your day off with a clean, hydrated face? I also love the wide awake brightening eye cream because it is a gel-formulation and it doesn’t leave your skin feeling greasy and just smells lovely. The vitamin C cream just gives the nicest glow when used in conjunction with these products or on its own. It’s my go-to the last couple of weeks! Vitamin C in the summer just feels right haha. Antioxidants are the best! And my favourite face cream is the extra dry Neutrogena hydro boost. It’s fragrance free and hydrates your skin, leaving is so soft to the touch and doesn’t cause any irritation. And because it’s summer and I used vitamin C, I had to follow with sunscreen. I chose to go with the spray as it’s quick and easy to use and super light on the skin. (I forgot to include a photo of the cleanser and sunscreen I used but will tag them below. I’ve done reviews for all the products below which is why I haven’t gone into much detail on them in this post 💚) Step 1: Cleansed my face with CeraVe - Hydrating Face Cleanser For Normal To Dry Skin Step 2: The Ordinary - Hyaluronic Acid 2% + B5 Step 3: SATURDAY SKIN - Wide Awake Brightening Eye Cream with Avocado Step 4: REN CLEAN SKINCARE - Glow Daily Vitamin C Gel Cream Step 5: Neutrogena - Neutrogena Hydroboost Water Gel Moisturizer (extra dry) Step 6: Neutrogena - Ultra Sheer Face Mist Sunscreen Broad Spectrum SPF 55

☀️ morning skincare routine for dry skin ☀️
finding a good skincare routine was one of my 2020 goals. after much trial and error, i have found some products that i really love: GARNIER - Micellar Water Facial Cleanser Sensitive Skin - so gentle for morning cleansing. DRUNK ELEPHANT - C-Firma Vitamin C Day Serum - vitamin c has made a major difference for me. i have noticed dark spots fading and my skin brightening. TATCHA - The Dewy Skin Cream - perfectly creamy and moisturizing, and i love the subtle scent. this is the first face cream that i have repurchased before finishing the first jar! Supergoop! - Unseen Sunscreen Broad Spectrum SPF 40 - clearly a favorite, as the wording has basically rubbed off. i love that this goes on clear and matte. it doubles as my primer if i’m wearing makeup.
