Highly recommended Cleansing oil
I’ve been using shu uemura - Blanc:chroma lightening & polishing cleansing oil
Oct. 22, 2019
shu uemura blanc:chroma cleansing oil and eyelash curler 👑 blanc:chroma Cleansing Oil - This oil claims to 1) clean your face, which is standard, and 2) brighten the overall skin tone and lighten dark spots, which is wild. On the cleansing front, I think this works really well; It truly feels like the most emollient, effective, yet gentle cleansing oil I’ve ever tried. 💰 However, it is also 400% more expensive than my usual Kose Speedy Cleansing Oil. At $45, I would need it to live up to the second part of the claim - to brighten my sun spots - but I haven’t used it enough to evaluate that yet. The intriguing ingredients that would achieve that are volcanic clay (mild exfoliant) and Lipo HA, a modified salicylic acid that accelerates skin regeneration. I’ll definitely check back in! 💄 Eyelash Curler - This curler is iconic, an Allure best of beauty winner, and FINALLY FITS MY ALMOND SHAPED EYES. What a godsend! No more pinched lids, and it actually curls my stick-straight eyelashes from the base. At $20 at sephora, this is a great product at a fair price. ✨TLDR: Really enjoyed both of these products, but need more time with the blanc:chroma to see if it evens my complexion.
Travel friendly cleansing oil
Eve Lom kindly gifted me their Cleansing Oil Capsules. Each capsule contains the perfect dose to cleanse the face of impurities, even waterproof mascara. It does feel oily, but as you can see, it slips down my hand so it’s not too thick. It’s not sticky and it washes off easily. I love the ingredients in this cleansing oil. It contains omega fatty acids, so it’s able to melt dirt and debris while also hydrating the skin. This product also contains a blend of botanical oils that includes eucalyptus, clove, Egyptian chamomile and Magnolia Officinalis Bark Extract. The Magnolia is supposed to treat lack of energy, anxiety and allergic reactions. I really appreciate the thoughtful ingredients and the biodegradable capsules. I do find that the scent is very strong and I don’t enjoy it very much, but the product itself is nice. Unfortunately, I wouldn’t repurchase due to the price ($75) and because my other cleansing oils do the same, if not, a better job of removing makeup (especially mascara). However, these capsules are very luxurious. They provide a treat yo’self moment and they are great for travel. I’d definitely recommend them if the scent doesn’t bother you and if you need a travel friendly cleansing oil to pack for a trip.

My everyday cleanser at the moment 💙
Depending on the season, I change up my cleansers. Right now since it is beginning to become summer and my face can be a bit more dry than usual from being out on the sun sometimes (always with SPF 😉) I have been steering towards my Hydrating Gel Cleanser It is formulated with ingredients to cleanse, hydrate and brighten the skin with light foaming action. This gentle yet effective formula helps maintain combination skin's delicate moisture balance while providing multiple benefits; thoroughly cleanses, nourishes the skin and encourages light exfoliation for a softer, radiant complexion. Glycerin is a main ingredient in this cleanser and it is great for keeping moisture and hydration in the skin! Definitely give this a try if you are looking for a new gentle cleanser 💙 #cleanser #gentle #cheriecreator

Great cleansing balm
BANILA CO - Clean It Zero Cleansing Balm Original This hypoallergenic cleanser claims to cleanse, gently exfoliate & hydrate skin. It even claims to remove waterproof makeup. Targeted concerns include dullness/uneven texture, pores and dryness. It has a sherbet-like balm texture that transform into a smooth oil when applied to skin. This is the first cleansing balm I used ever after seeing a YouTuber rave about it and my curiosity got the best of me. I’ve tried their cleansing balm (purity) also which is formulated for sensitive skin & they are both very similar— no irritation. However purity was scentless (one of my faves) but this guy has a cherry scent to it. It makes me think of medicine when I use this. In terms of cleansing powers, 👍🏻 it leaves my skin feeling clean and soft each time. It doesn’t leave a weird film even before the second cleanse. It has a twist off cap, but only has a whimsy plastic holder for the scooper. Eventually I will toss the plastic out & throw the scooper inside or not use the scooper at all. For this 100ml jar, it’s only $19. Absolutely think it’s worth it. Will most likely repurchase the purity version instead of the original (this jar). Highly recommend this due to how convenient it is to travel around with! Ps this is my 4th jar!
BANILA CO-Clean It Zero Cleansing Balm Original
Luxurious Yet Affordable 💸
For this week’s Friyayfaves brought to you by @the__glow__girl 💞 I thought I would share with you all a product I have been testing out all week! Innisfree sent over their ℙ𝕠𝕣𝕖 ℂ𝕝𝕖𝕒𝕣𝕚𝕟𝕘 𝔽𝕒𝕔𝕚𝕒𝕝 𝔽𝕠𝕒𝕞 𝕨𝕚𝕥𝕙 𝕍𝕠𝕝𝕔𝕒𝕟𝕚𝕔 ℂ𝕝𝕦𝕤𝕥𝕖𝕣𝕤 for review & this product gets two thumbs up from me! I wouldn’t say I’m picky per say when it comes to cleansers, but I know what I like and don’t like, and this one has everything I look for / want in a cleanser : gives that squeaky clean feeling without feeling tight or that your skin has been stripped of its natural oils, lathers nicely, doesn’t have a strong overwhelming fragrance, and doesn’t leave any weird films on my skin. There is nothing lackluster about this cleanser - a little goes a long way, and you get a little over 5 oz of product which will last you a longgg time; this lathers into a luxurious foam that heightens the experience. There are little beads in the formula, but it’s actually the Jeju volcanic clusters! These clusters are filled with minerals that naturally act to absorb excess oil and impurities from pores. The only thing I didn’t care for is the scent, but you only smell it when applying it - once you wash it off, it’s gone; there is no lingering fragrance. It’s not a perfumey scent either - just smells earthy? Nothing bothersome what so ever! The best part? This cleanser is super affordable - you can find it for just $12 at Sephora 🤎 innisfree - Pore Clearing Facial Foam
innisfree-Pore Clearing Facial Foam
This is the Good Molecules Instant Cleansing Balm. It is intended to melt away makeup and cleanse the skin. This is great for all skin types, but I’d say especially if you have oily or combination skin. I enjoy using this even as someone with dry skin. It’s not stripping at all but doesn’t leave my skin feeling greasy with oils like many cleansing balms tend to do. It melts away makeup flawlessly and has the faintest yet most pleasant scent. It’s a pure white balm that is easily scooped out with the included spatula. You only need a small amount for the entire face. I really enjoy using it and would highly recommend trying it - it’s only $12! That’s a steal and highly worth trying it!
Farmacy Clean Bee Cleanser 🐝
The FARMACY - Clean Bee Ultra Gentle Facial Cleanser is one of my favorite cleansers! Farmacy claims its is a gentle, soothing gel facial cleanser that removes make up while adding hydration. It is formulated for all skin types and addresses fullness and uneven texture. It also has the Clean at Sephora seal. Contains: Hyaluronic acid to add moisture into the skin Honey for soothing the skin, delivering antioxidants, and adding moisture A while back I was looking to switch my skincare routine over to one without so many harsh ingredients and this cleanser was one I leaned towards. The pump makes it very easy to use and as someone with oily skin I love the gel formula. I can’t attest to taking off make up completely because I do go in with a cleansing balm first but it does get off all the left over make up after that step. It does have a faint smell (and that’s my only real complaint about it. There is fragrance but it’s a wash off treatment so it’s not as bad as a leave on treatment for the skin. I still wish they’d formulate without it though) but I don’t mind it. I don’t feel like it strips my skin after use as it doesn’t feel tight or dry afterwards. I’m not sure for the hydration claims but I think it’s an effective, “clean” cleanser that doesn’t strip. I would recommend this to anyone looking for a “clean” alternative for a cleanser. I’ve experienced zero break outs or irritation with this product. #cherieconversations

My Mental Wellness Improved Through My Self AcceptanceWhen I was around 13 or 14 years old, I remember routinely taking one of my older sister’s black eyeliner pencils before school every morning. I’d arrive early so that I could slip away to the girl’s bathroom to apply a single black line to my eyelids. My parents didn’t allow me to wear any makeup at the time. Although this smudgy line on my eyelids didn’t make me look all that much different, I never felt comfortable at school without it. My teenage mind convinced myself that I needed some sort of cosmetic symbol in order to appropriately express my femininity. Up until that point in my life, society had told girls that looked like me - tall, Black, and with kinky hair - that we somehow weren’t as beautiful as the other girls. For far too long, I believed it too.Feb. 17
