Hi guys!!! Would love to hear your thoughts on Farmacy’s cherry line!
FARMACY-Cheer Up Brightening Vitamin C Eye Cream with Acerola Cherry
Some 🍊🍊🍊 first impressions!
I recently picked up the OLE HENRIKSEN - Truth Juice Daily Cleanser and I have been loooooving it! I wasn’t a fan of their gel or foam cleansers from the Truth a Collection in the past, but I think they might’ve nailed it with this one. It’s so wonderful and creamy, makes my skin feel squeaky clean, yet hydrated and refreshed, and smells sooo good! I can’t give this a 5/5 because I haven’t used it long-term, but I do love it so far! Has anyone else tried this?!
OLE HENRIKSEN-Truth Juice Daily Cleanser
Just wanted to share that the YTTP mist is my favorite face mist EVER! Unlike other mists that have a chunky spray, this one literally just cascades beautifully onto your face. It is instantly hydrating and soothing, and has a minimal scent. I’m so happy I got my hands on the baby version for my purse! This is a holy grail for me!

💄THE PRODUCT💄 The FENTY BEAUTY - Pro Kiss’r Lip-Loving Scrubstick is a marketed as a lip-scrub, but it’s solid and in a twist-up tube like a lipstick so it isn’t messy like traditional lip scrubs in jars can be. It has apricot seeds to gently but effectively scrub dead skin off your lips. The target concerns of this product are dry lips and rough lips. Using this product is meant to smooth lips so that they feel better and so that your lip products/makeup will apply more smoothly. It nourishes lips while it scrubs with a mix of oils and butters like jojoba and shea. The texture of this is solid, and at the top of the product you can see the scrubby seeds that are embedded in the lip-balmy formula. It feels very gentle on your lips and has a great amount of scrub. 💋MY HONEST OPINION💋 I have wanted to try Rihanna’s Fenty lip products for so long!! I loved the lip gloss so I finally decided to buy the Scrubstick and the Lip Balm from her range. I got these about a month ago. I mention the lip balm because they complement each other really well! I’ve had this for about two months. I love love LOVE this product. It really gets the dead skin off of my lips that lip balm won’t ever soften. I feel like I start with a clean slate after I use this to apply a nice nourishing lip balm. I don’t feel like it tears or pulls at my lips at all. I use it maybe once a week for routine exfoliating maintenance. I would for sure recommend this product to others. It checks all my boxes for recommendation: great price, great results, and cruelty-free! It is the best lip scrub that I’ve tried (I’ve also tried Lush scrubs and one from Jane Iredale). The price of this is $16 for the Scrubstick which seems like it’ll last a while. It doesn’t say how much product you get, but I think this is definitely worth the price! Lip scrubs might seem like yet another step in your routine, but if you struggle with flaky, dry skin on your lips, or just want to indulge, this is definitely worth the effort and it only take 15 seconds to scrub and wipe it off. Worth the price, time, and effort!🤍 I give this a coveted 5/5 ⭐️ rating. I mean...does Rihanna EVER let us down?! Nope. Great price and great performance!

🌷K-Beauty Skincare Product 🌷
🐯THE PRODUCT🐯 The Dr. Jart+ - Cicapair Tiger Grass Calming Gel Cream is marketed as an ultra-light hydrating gel cream for oily and combination skin. Dr. Jart is one of the most popular K-Beauty brands in the U.S. This is one of their newer releases and an addition to the revamped Cicapair line! It is targeted at skincare concerns including dryness and redness. It has centella asiatic (tiger grass) to soothe sensitivity as well. It provides lightweight hydration and moisture to irritated or sensitive skin. The texture of this product is a very thin, spreadable gel. It is a pale green color as shown on this cute bag! This bag is from the Cica Rescue Kit. Cica is another name for tiger grass! 🍃MY HONEST OPINION🍃 I wanted to try this because I had first tried the Color Correcting Treatment from this brand, and I thought it was way too thick on my skin, but I loved the idea of tiger grass in skincare. So I tried out this gel cream out and LOVED IT! I’ve been using this for about 6 months. I love this product and always reach for it when my skin feels super sensitive. It allows my skin to breathe while helping to soothe it. This is great for AM and PM use for my skin. I prefer this thin texture to the original Cicapair Tiger Grass Cream. I would definitely recommend this to others who struggle with irritated or sensitive skin. It helps calm redness on the skin, and it smells super refreshing but light. I’m so happy that I have minis to travel with!! It retails for $48 for 50 mL of product which I think is worth the price, but I also think that it is expensive for a more niche moisturizer that I don’t use daily. I just use this when my skin is in need of extra soothing rather than my everyday moisturizer. As far as time/effort, it applies like any other cream so it is quick and easy. It layers really nice over serums and under an oil if you want! I give this a 4/5 ⭐️ rating. I love everything about this gel cream, besides the price, and I wish that Dr. Jart was a cruelty-free skincare brand.

🦠OIL CONTROL PRODUCTS🦠
👽THE PRODUCT👽 The SUNDAY RILEY - Martian Mattifying Melting Water-Gel Toner is a really unique toner! It transforms from a gel into a liquid as you apply it to your face. It is a magnifying and clarifying toner to be used after cleansing your face. It helps skin look clearer and more matte. It is used to help control oil on your face, but normal and combo skin types can use this too. The target concerns of this product are oily and acne-prone skin. It has bentonite clay to mattify the skin and reduce the appearance of the size of your pores. This product also has marshmallow to soothe the skin, and manuka (a purifying botanical ingredient) to help reduce oil and minimize blemishes. The texture when you pump the product out is a thin gel, and once you apply it to your face on a cotton pad, it becomes a liquid like any other toner. It has a very cooling sensation on the face. The photo shows the initial gel texture! 🛸MY HONEST OPINION🛸 I tried this product because I got it in the Sunday Riley Space Race Kit, and I have had it for about 6 months. I have dry but acne-prone skin, so I tried this out for the acne-fighting benefits rather than oil control. I like this product, surprisingly! I don’t find it too drying for my skin even though it is marketed for oil control, and it feels very refreshing. It does help dry up acne spots. I can’t speak to the oil-control benefits of this product, as I have really dry skin that doesn’t need oil control. However, it is not greasy at all and feels very nice on the skin, so I think it would work for oily skin! I would recommend this to others! It is great for acne-prone skin, and works well in conjunction with the other SR products from this line (the Saturn Mask and UFO oil). I also think this is worth the price! $25 for 50mL (which is what I have) or $55 for 130mL. The small size lasts a while, so it’s definitely worth the price! It’s super quick and easy to use this, and it’s effortless as it layers well under other skincare products! Overall, I give this a 4/5 ⭐️ rating! I’m knocking off a star because I can’t tell how good of an oil control product this actually is, and it has a fairly strong scent (natural, but a little intense).

Tatcha! I've found the one 💜
I’ve been using TATCHA - The Deep Cleanse Exfoliating Cleanser for quite some time now intermittently switching off to try other cleansers but I’ve been coming back to this one! Tatcha states it is “a daily gel cleanser with natural fruit exfoliant that thoroughly but gently lifts impurities and unclogs pores while leaving skin soft and hydrated”. This cleanser is one of my absolute faves. I have oily/combo skin so the fact that this is a gel cleanser means it doesn’t try out my face and leaves it feeling clean without making my skin feel like the Sahara. I love using this cleanser. Hands down it has become a holy grail for me. The gel texture is great, the physical exfoliant leaves my skin feeling soft. Priced at $38 for 5 oz/150 ml I feel like it is a bit pricey for a cleanser, but for me it goes above and beyond what I need it to do so I love it. I give this 5/5 stars. This does contain a bit of fragrance but I am willing to overlook the added ingredient because of how much I love how my skin feels after using this. I would def recommend this to a friend.

Are You a Pimple Popper?
Alba Botanica’s Acnedote Skin Pimple Patches are hydrocolloid patches that draw out fluid and oils away from your pimple all the while containing salicylic acid to help reduce redness and inflammation. This adhesive patch is to be put on top of the pimple to help contain the skin around the site as well as keep it moist and reduce the amount of scarring. This can be worn during the day or when you sleep and is meant to be worn for up to 8 hours. What I really loved about this pimple patch was how it contains two sizes. Like people, no two pimples are the same and I appreciated that I could choose the size of my patch. Also as gross as it sounds, I love seeing the amount of oil and gunk that comes out from my pimple. I’ve been using these for over a month now and I do notice a difference when I use them on pimples vs when I don’t. Besides the obvious that once it’s covered I won’t pick at it, I do feel it helps reduce the redness and amount of time the pimple stays on my face. I have even worn these in public because it helps discreetly hide my pimples. I bought mine from Amazon for $6.99 and it contained 40 patches. I have already told my friends to try it and expressed my love for these. I give this product a 5/5 and I absolutely love it! If you have not tried it, I recommend it! It’s affordable and effective!
the pore minimizing cleanser of my dreams
Holifrog Shasta AHA Refining Acid Wash - • Price: $38 for 4 fl. oz. • Skin type: oily, combo, and dry • Product function: a cleanser that works to clear each pore to reveal smooth, glassy skin • Target concerns: breakouts, congestion, large pores, dullness, and texture • Key ingredients: Glycolic, mandelic, lactic, tartaric, and citric acids; lime extract, tamanu oil, rosehip oil and aloe vera • Texture: a translucent, white, and moderately thick gel • Fragrance: unscented; just a clean tangy scent How I use it: At night as my second cleanse My opinion: I was gifted this cleanser along with the entire Holifrog line from Poke PR. This is the most gentle exfoliating cleanser that I have ever tried. It effectively dissolves all traces of debris and dead skin without leaving my skin feeling stripped or tight. When I first used this product, I didn’t like it that much because it doesn’t lather or foam, but then I learned that it was specifically formulated not to lather to prevent strpping of the skin. I am not a huge fan of the smell, but I don’t mind it that much because the product is so good. After using this, my skin feels clean, clear, and ready to take on the rest of my routine. I really enjoy using this at night after a long day out and about to wash away all of the grime from the day. I do think that the price is a little high, but there is no other product like Shasta on the market. I definitely recommend Shasta to anyone looking for a new cleanser that struggles with congestion and breakouts. HOLI FROG - Shasta AHA Refining Acid Wash

The vitamin c of my dreams
Summer Fridays cc me serum - • Price: $64 • Skin types: normal, dry, combination and oily • Product function: A multitasking serum that naturally brightens, improves skin texture, and reduces dark spots and hyperpigmentation. • Target concerns: dullness, texture, dark spots, hyperpigmentation • Key ingredients: vitamin c 1&2, squalane, peptide complex, niacinamide • Ingredient callouts: vegan, cruelty-free and gluten-free • Texture: thin, super light nude color, shiny • Fragrance: light, fresh, and floral • How I use it: every morning after toner and before essence • My opinion: I bought the cc me serum as soon as it was launched (especially because it came with a free t-shirt), and I am now on my second bottle thanks to my sephora gift card from cherie. This is the best vitamin c for my skin that I have tried; it is thin and not sticky at all which is hard to find in a vitamin c, plus it has a very pleasant fragrance. I have been using this serum consistently for about 3 months now and I am very impressed with the results. My skin looks a bit more smooth, bright, glowy, and plump after each use. I definitely recommend the cc me serum to anyone who is the market for a new vitamin c serum, but I would definitely do a patch test or try a sample first because I have heard of others having a bad reaction to it. CC Me is a little bit pricey at $64 but I definitely think it is worth it because it is the best vitamin c serum around that price range for my skin that I have tried. I will always repurchase!

A toner your face needs!
Definitely one of the best toners I’ve ever tried. If you have dry sensitive skin this baby is the product for you. This product is targeted for normal,dry, and combination skin. It has nice a thin milky consistency that your face will drink right up. Oats are amazing for calming skin down and this product does just that! On top of that provides amazing hydration. During this time of the year my skin usually gets super dry and flakey and honestly not many products help with it. It retails for $22 and I think that’s an amazing price for the results that this toner gives. The fab toner has been a game changer for that problem! Fragrance free&alcohol free, this is an amazing toner :) I highly recommend this product!
