BE MINE? My hair valentines 💘
BE MINE? My hair valentines 💘
Just in time for Valentine’s Day, I have a new set of hair favorites to share with the Cherie fam. Update: I’ve gotten highlights! With new color treated hair I’ve shifted my hair routine to be extra hydrating, repairing and consistent. These products have made a HUGE difference in my hair health, and simplifying my hair routine. 💘Uncle Funky's Daughter - Curly Magic Curl Stimulator This gel is absolutely amazing for wash and go’s. It’s got a firm hold, but not crunchy! No flaking, scent is not overbearing (smells like ginger IMO) #Kirkland Signature - Moisturizing Conditioner[products]#[FiveStars] 💘Another gem.. friends.. this conditioner is from costco and is a Purology Dupe!! Seriously amazing high quality conditioner for half the price. Take a look at the ingredient list, they are nearly identification (and share the same manufacturer cough cough) #Ion - Purifying Shampoo[products]#[FiveStars] 💘If you have hard water, this shampoo is amazing for a deep cleanse! It helps your hair start fresh (ie very squeaky clean so only needed once a month). It is great for color treated hair as well to keep your hair properly toned by cleansing the mineral buildup that leaves it dull sometimes. the doux - Mousse Def Texture Foam 💘I’ve never been a foam gal, but this is AMAZING! It leaves my hair super defined, shiny, voluminous, and with a light hold. This line is amazing because it was created by a top hairstylist that understands the science, and needs of natural hair. It provides really quality results for an affordable price.

I got this at home high frequency kit from Amazon and it has been so much fun to incorporate into my routine! ⚡️High Frequency⚡️ This wand utilizes a neon gas filled glass wand to supercharge ATP synthesis for rapid cell turnover and rejuvenation. Benefits include: Reducing acne Reducing hyperpigmentation Stimulating hair growth (with hair comb wand attachment) Preventing premature wrinkles and softening fine lines Personally I use this product on a clean face with a little cheese cloth to help run across my skin smoothly. It has multiple attachments included in the kit such as a hair comb for helping grow hair, a small tip for spot treatments, a mushroom top for large areas, and a spoon for under eyes. I got the whole kit for $35!!! This product has definitely helped with inflammed acne that needs to be tended to ASAP. It immediately reduces the size almost overnight and I can see a huge difference using it for 2 weeks consistently. FYI - touch your finger to the neck of the wand youbefore putting in your skin so it doesn’t shock you. If you skip this step you will get a pinching feeling but otherwise this process is totally painless even though it looks kinda scary lol. Pure daily care - NuDerma Skin Therapy Wand

I was on the hunt for a great setting powder recently and found this. I’ve tried lots of Laura Geller products before and thought sure why not, I love most of their brand! WRONG This setting powder is not brown/black girl friendly. It leaves your face super chalky and lifeless looking. And on top of that it doesn’t melt into your skin like a setting powder normally does, it sits on top of your makeup and makes you look like a powdered donut 🥲 The colors do not mix together as you would think so it gives off a sparkly iridescent look, that is simply not cute lol. So, give it to me straight Santa, leave this one out of the stocking this year and give me coal instead 😭LAURA GELLER - Filter Finish Powder HOWEVER— If you are looking for a great finishing powder, her cousin LAURA GELLER - Filter Fix Baked Correcting Powder is BOMB! I love the peach tones that make you glow, and it truly gives your foundation a flawless matte look.

Coming to you with no filter, no edits, straight off the camera roll fierceness 😌 pictures like this make me remember how fun playing in beauty products can be. For 2021 I have finally started to lay out my resolutions for the next year (and beyond!) 🧑🏽‍🎨 Makeup: Have more fun! I mastered the no makeup makeup and called it a day 🤣 I want to learn more about neon eyeliners, bright lips and fun blush clean my makeup brushes more often (Yeah this is a self drag) Invest in high quality foundation Yes sometimes the E.L.F will do her thing, but a nice foundation seriously brings together a look and would be worth a few extra coins 🍵 Skin: continue to double cleanse EVERY night Honesty I’ve been pretty good at this but trying to keep on keepin on cut down on unnecessary serums I’ve pretty much found what works for me but the product junkie in my soul loves trying extra things that just complicate my routine even more and drain my wallet! Try to get into a consistent sugar waxing routine I’ll update y’all on this later, but baybeee EWC may never see me again 👀 🧶 Hair: find one GOOD quality heat protectant Not sure why I can’t find my go to product, but I’m tired of guessing and I’m on the hunt for my forever heat protectant lol less buns, less tension hairstyles Trying to preserve the baby hairs y’all olaplex/deep conditioning treatment at least 1x a week no more hair ties!! Only silk scrunches shall prevail What are your beauty resolutions? Let’s chat 😍⬇️⬇️

Just kidding this was intentional 😉 This is one of those “do as I say, not as I do” moments where i have given myself a at home chemical peel. Picture is day 4 where my forehead has started to shed off and reveal that beautiful baby skin underneath. Chemical peels have been AMAZING for my hyperpigmentation and texture troubles and fabulous for preventing premature aging. Peels are best done in a series ( 3 up to 6 depending on skin) so I will pick up my second treatment right after New Years. Gotta say, this is one of the cardinal sins of skincare, but I’m very excited to know I may be able to take this out of my skincare budget by DIYing with enzyme products and low strength peels. 🪱Disclaimer don’t try to be a professional at home kids, it can be very dangerous and mess you up worse than you started🪱

⭐️Brand Review: The Formulyst
⭐️Brand Review: The Formulyst
I was gifted these items by Formulyst and I have been trying them out for the past few weeks! Here’s a few thoughts: #The Formulyst - Active Serum[products]#[FourStars] The active serum is JAM packed with antioxidants and skin nourishing ingredients. Because it has a great cocktail of vitamin C I like to use it in the AM underneath my sunscreen. Did you know pairing vitamin C serums with SPF will actually boost your protection?! One star off because the serum does leave a tacky/sticky feeling that is a little annoying right after application. However it does not pill when I put on my sunscreen. Another thing I love about this serum is that it’s bottle is light protective (dark packaging) which is SERIOUSLY important with vitamin C serums since they are photosensitive and become unstable when exposed to light (aka ineffective). Second up, #The Formulyst - Instant Lip Plumper[products]#[ThreeStars] I like this lip product for a subtle sheen and slight pouty lip. If you’ve ever used a lip plumping gloss you know that tingle that makes you feel like the product is really working 😩 this one doesn’t have much of a tingle at all (which is great if you don’t like that sensation). One of the best things about the product is the fact that is is not sticky, at all! It soaks right in and makes your lips look and feel moisturized and healthy. Lastly, and not pictured #The Formulyst - Anti Dark Circle Eye Cream[products]#[FiveStars] This product is actually one of the best eye creams I’ve used! It’s caffeine and butchers broom extract really alleviate the hallowness that can make my dark cuticles look even more pronounced. Typically I’m not a huge supporter of eye creams because of their false claims to “fix” eye area issuers, but this one seems to be doing more harm them good. It is easily absorbed and feels lightweight, nourishing, and doesn’t not have a scent (which can sometimes make your eyes irritated/watery)
