My new FAV foundation: Rare Beauty
My new FAV foundation: Rare Beauty
Bonjour ma cherie, I recently purchase the new foundation from Rare Beauty Rare Beauty - Liquid Touch Weightless Foundation My Shade: 390C Spoiler. I’m obsessed. I said goodbye to liquid foundation a longtime ago because it never fit well on my skin, was messy, and heavy. At the time I had oily skin, so I think that didn’t help. Nowadays I have combo to dry skin and this foundation works really well. Pros: - Its so lightweight! - My color match is absolutely perfect. I’ll have to make adjustments in the winter when I’m more “pale” but that normal. - Long lasting - Blends like a dream Cons: - The formula separates in the bottle a lot, just remember to shake it well before opening! - The smell is not nice, or even neutral. Like... it smells bad before it dries down Honestly I was ready to hate, not only am I not a huge fan of Selena (I know, petty), but I got a wannabe Fenty vibe and I was not down. But I am so pleased! I don’t think I’ll be buying anything else from the collection, just cause there’s nothing else that I need or am interested in. But the foundation is a great buy.

IS MY CHEMICAL EXFOLIATION EVEN WORKING??????
IS MY CHEMICAL EXFOLIATION EVEN WORKING??????
Bonjour ma cherie, Today I am DESPERATE. A few weeks ago I started using a new BHA and AHA (I’ll talk about them later) in an effort to even out my skin tone and get rid of my comedonal acne. A big move on my part tbh. Previous to using chemical exfoliation, I used...nothing to exfoliate. And before THAT I used physical exfoliation. Anyways, so far I thought I was liking these new products, but in the last week I have noticed something strange. I. Look. Crusty. My skin is looking like I haven’t exfoliated since 2008 and I’m over it. It’s hardly even just dry skin, it look like sebum plugs are hanging off my face. Is this a part of the process, is it normal? Please halp!

Zitsticka HYPERFADE 1st Impression + Application
Bonjour ma cherie! It’s finally here! The new ZITSTICKA - Hyperfadehas finally come in the mail. Took a few months but we got there 💃🏽 So I wanted to try it out right away so I cleansed my skin and tried to decide which of my many dark spots (hyperpigmentation) would be treated. I picked 2 for this round and you can see them in the photos I took. So I opened the product and there is not that much information about the product on the packaging or leaflet, pretty minimal, but that means there’s more room for error on my part. So there are 12 individually packed treatments in each box. Yes it’s a lot of plastic, it’s kinda embarrassing. So I stuck two patches on my skin and pressed down lightly. It’s says to wait to hours until the darts have dissolved and voila! Likes so far: - There is no sensation when you put the darts on - You only have to wear it for 2 hours every three days Dislikes so far: - The amount of plastic - Lack of clear and detailed instructions - The amount of patches inside ( $50 for 12 patches??) I’ll probably check back in when this first round is all done in about 2 weeks (or sooner, depends)

Safflower Oil: The Ultimate Double Cleanse!
Safflower Oil: The Ultimate Double Cleanse!
Bonjour mon cherie, I have been using a few different products that I am excited to talk about soon! I want to give them enough time to do their work, so keep an eye out for that later. For today I will be talking about Safflower Oil! I was doing some research on what type of oil is good for oil cleansing and came across safflower. I couldn’t find many products made with it, so I had to order from some small batch beauty company in Singapore. It’s called Oasis:Skin It’s took 3 months to get to me in Canada but it arrived and I’m obsessed! It’s unscented, cold pressed, and unrefined. The first time I used it I swear it was oil plug city. Some much was coming off my face I was shocked. Black heads and all. I have been using it every other day, and my skin feels supple, smooth, and bright the next day. I don’t know if this company is viable for everyone, but look into safflower oil, it may be what you are looking for! #Oasis:Skin - Safflower Oil[products]#[FiveStars]

Laneige Lip Mask:  Slightly Above Average
Laneige Lip Mask: Slightly Above Average
Bonjour ma cherie! I hope you all are listening to Folklore on repeat like I am, ugh she really did that. So here it is, the famous LANEIGE - LANEIGE Lip Sleeping Mask I bought this a while back in the tester pack, it also came with their LANEIGE - Water Sleeping Mask I bought the tester because this product was extremely expensive FOR ME. So I wanted to make sure I loved it before I made that investment. And boy am I glad I did The mask is great don’t get me wrong, but it’s just a good lip balm... like so many more affordable options out there. I’m my world the price cannot be justified when I have other lip balms that work better. I will say that when I first started using it, my lips started peeling... strange eh? I don’t know what that was but it did subside after a while. I don’t know what happened there but just a warning to those who are interested in buying. Pretty overrated if you ask me.

Lush Elbow Grease - I love this stuff!
Lush Elbow Grease - I love this stuff!
Bonjour ma cherie! Today I’ll be talking about LUSH - Elbow Grease In short, this stuff is great! I bought it to help with my dry, rough elbows and knees. After application, my skin feels hydrated and smooth. And I mean SMOOTH. When I first got it in the mail, it was completely liquid, so be careful when you open this product I’m hot weather, you might just spill a bunch... ( not like I did that myself... ) The balm goes on very greasy, so it has to be given time to soak in. Just a heads up. I’m terms of smell, it’s not strong at all. But it doesn’t smell like the “grease” my mom used to use on my hair and scalp as a child (ah the days of twists, braids, and bubbles). If you know, you know. Overall 10/10

Gel moisturizer for oily skin
Gel moisturizer for oily skin
⭐️ 𝗥𝗲𝘃𝗶𝗲𝘄 ⭐️ ByWishtrend, Acid-Duo Hibiscus 63 Cream ($17-20, YesStyle, Amazon, brand website) ——————— ⇛Beauty (⭐️⭐️⭐️): This is a lovely gel cream that is perfect for very oily skin and #pinkwednesday . It moisturizes lightly without irritation, and has LHA and PHA for gentle exfoliation (good for sensitive skin). The star ingredient is hibiscus flower extract, which is really high in antioxidants. There is no fragrance, and it sinks into the skin really well and quickly. It layers well over actives, and does not pill. For me, this is a daytime or summer moisturizer, I need a bit more moisturize at night and during the winter, and prefer to use my actives separately. It’s a great buy under $20 if you have really oily skin, need a gently exfoliating moisturizer, and want something simple at a great price. Personally, it’s not right for me. I also wish this was in a squeeze tube, It would help control the amount of product your fingers pick up when you dip them into the pot. ——————— ⇛Business (⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️, cruelty-free): I like ByWishtrend’s no-frills, no-nonsense approach to marketing and skincare. Products are straightforward, reasonably priced, and deliver on promises. I would totally recommend ByWishtrend and it’s sister brands to anyone new to KBeauty, most products are also gender neutral and not fragranced, so it is easy to gift. You can now find this and their sister brands at lots of retailers, and they recently relaunched the US website and have released more products. I’m looking forward to new releases in the next year. 
———————
 I paid a trial fee of $3.99 to try this product through @0.8l_usa and @wishtrend

SWAP SHAVING CREAM FOR...✨ #CheriePartner
SWAP SHAVING CREAM FOR...✨ #CheriePartner
Dry shaving- 🥉 Shaving cream-🥈 Hair conditioner- 🥇 Ever since I swapped my shaving cream for conditioner I have noticed a closer shave, no more razor bumps and ingrown hairs, and smoother legs that last longer. I first discovered that this could be a swap when I ran out of shaving cream in the shower and needed a substitute. I used this product instead so I would not experience the dreaded razor burn. To my surprise the conditioner did just that and more. I have used multiple different conditioners and they all work the same when it comes to shaving. I currently use ogx - Nourishing Coconut Milk Conditioner and it leaves smooth legs afterwards. As you can see in the photo, the conditioner is a lot thinner than a regular shaving cream. The product tends to build up quicker in the razor head but will instantly be removed upon getting wet with water. If your conditioner has moisturizing properties, that is always a plus for your legs. Have you ever tried this hack out? What are your thoughts?⬇️

Kiehl’s - Extreme hair growth
Kiehl’s - Extreme hair growth
If you clicked on this post, you are probably suffering from thinning hair or you know someone who have thinning hair or you might be kind of freaking out that you might be losing your hair. No worries, let me share my hair growth story and products that helps me with my concerns. I have a bit thin hair around my hairline that shows through whenever my hair gets longer when I put it back in a bun or pony tail, people can actually kind of see my scalp which is always depressing. Especially when I see myself in a picture, that area specifically catches all my attention. Kiehl's - Amino Acid Shampoo According to dermatologist, this shampoo actually works very well for hair growth especially for people who has alopecia (which is genetical). I do have a friend who have used this system and her hair grew back. I used to have thick hair when I was in high school. I suffered terrible hair loss in my last year of college and it suddenly became an issue for me. I tried this system because of my friend and it works well for me. The effect was not immediate but I do see a lot of regrowth on my hairlines. Kiehl's - Amino Acid Conditioner I didn’t noticed much in the first month of trying it, but I got this one on discount in a Duo, so I decided to use it up before buying new ones. It was about 6 months, I started to get compliment on my hair after continuously using this product. I came to notice that my hair does look completely different than last year. It was shiny, full, and glory. I also feel that my scalp is healthier. I believe this products is one of the lines that does what it says. I agree it is a little bit expensive, but that’s because they put in all of the right ingredients to help you have thicker and more luscious hair.

6 HG curl creams💕Give U the Best Twist Out Ever👏🏾
6 HG curl creams💕Give U the Best Twist Out Ever👏🏾
The key to getting healthy curls is to keep your locks as hydrated as possible. That’s why the best curl creams have moisturizing ingredients. To help you narrow down your choices, here are 6 of the best products for curly hair that will make your type 3 or 4 curls look beautiful. Thanks to these favorite curlers to define natural hair, I can transform a frizzy head into a radiant spectacle of curls. Eden BodyWorks It contains natural ingredients, such as coconut oil, shea butter. This product works great on natural black hair! I did Bantu knots using this product and it turned out amazing!! Shea Moisture This is the only Shea Moisture product that I use from time to time. I don't use it too often because it contains silk protein additions and it can upset my hair's moisture. I tend to use curl definition creams in my shampoo routine, which usually includes a deep treatment. My deep hair care already contains hydrolyzed protein and this curl enhancing smoothie can harden my hair sometimes and I think it boils down to the fact that I have too much protein in my hair. Cantu With such an affordable price, Cantu's Coconut Curling Cream gives students a bang for their buck. Formulated without harsh ingredients, this thick defining leaves hair stylable and visibly brighter. In addition, it smells good! Be careful though, although it has a nice blend of added oils, it also contains protein which can be a problem if your hair is sensitive to it. Camille Rose  I use this after applying a leave-in conditioner to give my hair extra hold. On days where my hair needs extra help, I follow up with a bit of hair gel! Afro Sheen I bought this product because I wanted something cheaper than Shea Moisture. It’s very thick and over moisturizes my curls I think it does help to bring them out.  AS I AM Definitely worth the price! It is thick and very moisturizing. It doesn’t have to use a lot to get the full effects of it.

🚫STOP THE RUB🚫
🚫STOP THE RUB🚫
I hate hate hate when my thighs rub together. In summertime I like to wear shorts, dresses, skirts, and rompers. I dislike when my legs get sweaty and thighs rub together. I especially hate it when I go hiking because it can be painful after a while. I saw one of my IG friends talk about a product she loved. My sister asked me for a recommendation for a product to help her with these same issues, and I mentioned it. She immediately bought it and brought it with her when she visited me last month. The megababe - Thigh Rescue is SO GOOD!! I ended up purchasing one for myself at Target after she left. It comes in a deodorant-style packaging that applies clear. It contains aloe, pomegranate, and grape seed oil. My thighs rub together but this product allows them to stay slippery so there’s no painful chafing. If I’m going to be outside for a long time I will re-apply after a couple hours. You can use this product wherever you experiencing chafing. This is my body care product of the summer! $14 at Ulta and Target. Cruelty-free. #CheriePartner
