Turmeric Moisturizer FIRST Impressions‼️
Neutrogena - Soothing Clear Turmeric Gel Moisturizer While treating effectively my skin for hyperpigmentation, I’ve noticed that I’ve been using products that are making my skin much more sensitive, meaning that it has been so prone to inflammation and some redness, so I’ve been looking at new & affordable moisturizers, since I ran out of my previous one. I stumbled upon this product in Walgreens, and seeing how turmeric products have become more popular, I decided to give it a go! The product is impressive not only because of its color, but due to its gel texture. I’ve never tried a gel-moisturizer, but they are recommended for oily & combination face skins because it they’re not thick & heavy. This cream is also non-comedogenic, so it feels good to have a really soothing cream that will ease and work nicely into my pores instead of clogging them. Turmeric sounds great because it works to get rid of acne while reducing inflammation and redness, which is not a combination you tend to see often. So far, I like how super lightweighted (almost to the point where you can’t feel it after letting it sit for a while) and refreshing the product feels when I put it onto my face. This is also great because I feel that the cream does moisturize without making your face more oily at all. All that’s left to do is see if there are some actual results of using this products after using it for at least a month, so I’ll be sure to follow up on that!

HOLY GRAIL DEFINING CURL CREAM‼️
cake - The Curl Friend Defining Curl Cream For reference, I have type 3A curls and thin hair strands. So, I was going to wait for a couple of more uses with this product, but I just HAD to make this post after using it for the first time because WOW I’M SUPER IMPRESSED! I headed out to buy my usual aussie - Miracle Curls with Coconut Oil Paraben Free Detangling Milk Treatment , but they ran out of stock, and that’s when I stumbled upon this cake - The Curl Friend Defining Curl Cream . After long due diligence, I decided to buy it because it’s vegan (no harsh chemicals, parabens and/or sulfates) and it also won an allure’s best of beauty award in 2019. The packaging is beautiful, and, when I opened it after washing my hair, I couldn’t help but notice the lovely and amazing smell that was coming out of this. It’s definitely sweet, but not overwhelming at all. Once I tried it, I noticed that the cream felt so smooth, silky, & lightweight (great for thin hair strands). It has avocado oil, soybean oil, and shea butter in it! It seems like this is definitely the perfect combination (for now) for my hair. I’ve shied away from butter mostly because it can be too heavy for my thin strands, but I guess that having it in smaller quantities works great. My hair is so SHINY, DEFINED, and VOLUMINOUS, and smells like CAKE. I mean, look at it! I can definitely say that this is my NUMBER 1 defining cream. HIGHLY RECOMMEND, please let me know how it feels if you try it. I am definitely going to try more cake products in the near future after finding this holy grail.

Don’t forget the primer! I think this one’s pretty basic and we might all know it, but if you forget to add it because you’re in a hurry or any other reason, then the whole makeup look will be affected! Don’t rub the foundation! Not only is it harsh to your face, but, by doing this, you’d only be SPREADING the base instead of BLENDING it. There’s a big difference between both. Instead, tap the foundation and blend it with circular motions. Don’t forget the neck! Many of us forget to this and it might seem that it’s not a big deal, but it is pretty noticeable, as you can see on the pictures. #CheriePartner
Things to AVOID during Makeup
Avoid using EXPIRED makeup! Unfortunately, makeup doesn’t last forever, and this is one of the MOST common mistakes that we unconsciously make and may be affecting our final look. Unlike food products, which tend to have a SET date (month/date/year), makeup products have time periods established based on how long the product lasts after you OPEN them for the first time. They normally appear in months (either 3M, 6M, 24M, 36M, etc.) and inside a symbol of a container with an open lid. You can take a look at the picture for a better description. While these may be not always be 100% accurate and you may stretch the product for a longer time, it is important to pay attention to the products’ quality when it is near or after the expiration month. Avoid using waterproof mascara EVERYDAY! While the formula is amazingly resistant during those long nights in the club, they are too good and are harsh to remove. If you use this mascara type often, you’ll notice that all of the harsh removal will damage your eyelashes and cause them to be more sensitive, which makes them easier to fall off. Only use them for those events where you’ll be sweating or very long events, so that it doesn’t smear off. Avoid adding lipstick to NAKED lips! This is what causes lips to look dry and crease super early, specially if you‘re wearing matte lipstick. I like to add a little bit of lip moisturizer or chapstick beforehand to make the lipstick last longer. Remember to also exfoliate your lips every once in a while too! #CheriePartner
Carrot Blemish Cream Review‼️
APRILSKIN - Carrot Blemish Cream Part of having oily skin is to find products that aid in the control of sebum production, which also reduces the formation of acne. While the name of the cream speaks for itself, I was very impressed with the results. The main ingredient is the carrot seed oil and it’s derived from organic carrot. Carrot provides an excellent source of beta-carotene and antioxidants, which is why it is great for cellular regeneration for a firmer and brighter skin. On top of these properties, this cream also has niacinamide, a very well-known ingredient that helps with targeting acne while helping with hyperpigmentation. This cream is also equipt with peptides that help with skin’s moisture and elasticity, while being NON-COMEDOGENIC. If you have large pores (like moi) you don’t have to worry about this moisturizer clogging your pores at all. Being a non-comedogenic product also makes it pretty lightweight, so it spreads smoothly onto the face. Plus, the cream smells really nice! Highly recommend!

Pacifica Pore Refine Mask Review!
PACIfICA - Mask Detox Pore Refine Deep I have to say that this mask has been a lifesaver whenever I have my face has bad acne, redness, and/or irritation! I promise that every time I’ve been under stress with the thought that my face’s progression is going backwards, putting this mask on helps with my worries due to the fast alleviating results I get. I definitely believe that it has to do with the fact that it has a lot of amazing natural ingredients such as willow bark, lemon, strawberry, cucumber, cactus, konjac root, and pistachio gum extracts. My face always feels instantly refreshed and smoothened. My acne’s size is definitely reduced and less irritated, while my pores feel tighter and super clean. The fact that it has all of these natural ingredients makes it suitable for EVERY skin type. There’s no way that this will be damaging for sensitive skin and it doesn’t have a drying effect either. The line’s also 100% vegan, so I’m definitely going to take a further look at this brands’ other skin products to try them out!

Fight Acne with Retinoids and Retinol to GLOW ✨
🚨If you suffer from stubborn acne (like I have) you may want to consider adding OTC retinoids to your routine! 🔑Retinoids, a vitamin A derivative, are a key player in the skincare industry. Many studies have proven retinoids fight acne, promote collagen, reduce wrinkles and hyperpigmentation to give skin a healthy glow. The good news is now there are plenty of options for Rx strength one now available OTC! 💁🏻♀️I only mentioned products I’ve use and that work!

Retinol can be 20x less effective than a Rx strength retinoids.

HOW TO SAVE SCAR-PRONE SKIN (KojieSan Review)
LEFT PHOTO: 2017 RIGHT PHOTO: 2020 So in 2017, my junior year, I developed a crazy breakout on my forehead. This breakout was pretty unusual to me. They were a bunch of very small, closed, white condones. There weren’t inflamed or tender, just raised. And me being me, I picked at them. They were so small I honestly didnt realize the damage they did to my skin until maybe a month after . And by then, these bumps spread from my forehead down to my chin. This is when I discovered kojic acid and papaya enzymes. And still to this day KojieSan soap is my mf go-to. So lets talk KojieSan. This soap is actually categorized as a skin lightening soap because of its active ingredient, kojic acid. Kojic acid’s primary use is to inhibit (prevent) melanin production. Because of this affect, it easily reduces visable age spots or scarring. Exhibiting anti-aging effects as well. Kojic acid also houses antimicrobial properties that can help treat acne by reducing the bacteria on your skin. Lol I understand how the phrase “skin lightener” can scare ppl. But please take into consideration that this would be my recommendation for anyone who is suffering from photodamge, melasma, or post hyperpigmentation. CAUTION: 1- Please be aware of this product. If not used properly, you can face some adverse side affects. STAY OUT OF THE SUN. If you plan on using this product do not come in contact with direct sunlight. The UV radiation will stimulate melanin production and cause VISIBLE PHOTODAMAGE. Always apply sunscreen regardless if you are going out in the sun or not! Highest SPF PLEASE 2- Be mindful to use this product in intervals for maximum results. 2 months at a time would be my recommendation. It gives your skin a chance to grow and breath. Also an opportunity to observe your skin 3- Do not use on sensitive or dry skin. Ex. Atopic dermatitis/eczema. This product can be very drying. Be mindful to hydrate and moisturize your skin after use. TIPS: When using this product remember to do a patch test before you apply a large amount on yourself. This can prevent an allergic reaction if you are allergic to any of the ingredients . I would recommend starting off using this product at night ONLY once a week. Then working your way up once every few nights. Then once every 2 nights. But listen to your skin. If you experience any (during or post) redness/ stinging/ sensitivity/ irritation, STOP using this product immediately. Once my skin became accustomed and conditioned to this product, I would leave it on for about 2 minutes then rinse. I would do this method every other night for 2 months at a time. This method really helped the post hyperpigmentation on my face and for my strawberry legs, as well as brightening my underarms, elbows and knees. Btw, I love this app so much. I was scrolling on my homepage and found an entry of this girl that was asking about this breakout she had . And her symptoms were practically identical to mine. FUNGAL ACNE. #darkspots

Speaking of affordable multichromes... these shifty mothereffers from Beauty Escape Cosmetics are only $7 each?! Okay so I was feeling creative when I did these swatches. Instead of the normal up and down, I kinda went from corner to corner. The second pic is labelled so that you can (hopefully) see what I mean. . 🌈 Friends Don't Lie isn't a multichrome obviously. It's a rich satiny black that can be used an intensifying base. . 🌈 The Upside Down looks smokey blue from straight on. It shifts aqua, gray, lavender, pink and green. This one is must have. It's unlike anything else in my collection . 🌈 Eleven is a coral pink that shifts orange, gold and green . 🌈 Thessalhydra is a bright sparkly green with a bronze to purple flip. Another must have imo . 🌈 Demogorgan is a sparkly teal that shifts plum, magenta, blue and green. Also gorgeous. . . This collection has been around for some time now and it's still one of my favorites. These are some of the most unique and interesting shades in my collection. We're talking Tammy Tanuka status. And the quality is excellent. I'm feeling inspired to do my makeup now because I want to play with these colors!
Get rid of acne overnight!!! New favs in 2020
New Acne-fighting favs, Life changing product!! Love love love these!!! The acne dots and dark spot brightening dots together, it’s a skin correcting power combo! If I could give these 6 stars I would. I have been using these as my secret weapon when I get a big pimple because it completely gets rid of the bacteria and helps the skin heal faster. Put these on at night after washing your face thoroughly and the next morning you will see a significant difference in your ache. These aren’t cheap I’ve tried other drugstore brands of the dots, but none of them work as well as these. My skin is sensitive and I don’t have any negative reactions to the dots. I 100% recommend these!
