What did I bring...?
I haven’t traveled in over a year! And having to choose what to bring with out of all my skincare choices was hard! I knew I wanted to lay-off the actives/chemicals as I’d be out in the sun on the beach all week but I also wanted to still be able to treat my skin if any issues popped up. Then it was, do I bring a bunch of stuff to photograph? Nope! In the end I just ended up picking my favorites as well as those that were small and easy to pack. The most easy to choose were from Youth to the People. They have a great line that could take me from cleansing to moisturizing and not needing any other brand at all. But that wouldn’t be much fun! 😂 Some of the standouts are: FARMACY - Green Clean Makeup Removing Cleansing Balm to remove sunscreen YOUTH TO THE PEOPLE - With Pride Minis Kit in here is the Superfood Cleanser. Also the exfoliating mask and Superberry mask if I feel I need them. Plus I got the black cosmetic bag to put all my skincare in! Perricone MD - Hypoallergenic CBD Sensitive Therapy Rebalancing Elixir I’ve been using this ever since I got it about two weeks ago now and LOVE it! My skin feels and looks so much healthier. I’m impressed! Medik8 - Full Lash & Brow Advanced Lash & Brow Serum I don’t think I’ll ever be able to live without this! I’m almost through my first one and I’ve had to trim my brows TWICE now! They are far from perfect but I’m hoping with continued use I’ll need less time filling them in. I’ve started to also notice a difference in my lashes. When I curl them they touch the top of my eyelid! (I’ve been using this for @ 6 weeks) FACETORY - FaceTory Oats Calming Glow Weightless Facial Oil I brought this one along not only for myself, just Incase (although I have 5 bottles of facial sunscreen!) but for my family who isn’t as persistent as me at reapplying. This will be great for dry, sunburn skin. Help calm and restore it. One of my favorites! I’ll be hoping to share more this week on some of the sunscreens and body products I brought with. I got hit with my monthly cycle and unfortunately my periods are very heavy and very painful. So these first two days so far have been a bust 🥴 although today and overcast out anyway.

YOUTH TO THE PEOPLE-Adaptogen Deep Moisture Cream with Ashwagandha + Reishi
Let me talk today about a product that did NOT work for me. FARMACY - Honey Grail Ultra-Hydrating Face Oil ————- What is it: (from the brand) A fast-absorbing, antioxidant-rich face oil for ultimate hydration and glow! This luxuriously lightweight, multitasking miracle worker revitalizes skin and helps smooth fine lines and wrinkles. ————— I received this when I won a contest the brand hosted. I had never worked with an oil before and was very hesitant to do so. I didn’t know anything about the ingredients nor what could cause irritation for me. I was just starting my skincare journey. The first ingredient is Cocoglycerides which are a mixture of mono, di and triglycerides derived from COCONUT OIL. This gives the moisturizing benefits of coconut oil, and similarly, this emollient ingredient helps give your skin a soft, smooth appearance. Listed second is Caprylic triglyceride, an ingredient used in soaps and cosmetics. It's usually made from combining COCONUT OIL with glycerin. And listed fourth is COCONUT OIL! So needless to say, HIGH LEVELS OF COCONUT OIL! Wow! And I quickly found out it caused me to break out. In all fairness I gave this several tries just to be certain. Even a full year later. But every single time I tried it, I broke out. What is the benefit to using coconut oil? It can help reduce inflammation, keeps skin moisturized & hydrated, helps protect against bacteria & here’s a twist, it possess antimicrobial properties that can help treat acne 🤷♀️ But, coconut oil is also highly comedogenic, which means it can clog pores. Consequently, it may actually make acne worse for some people. It is NOT recommended for those with oily skin. FARMACY - Honey Grail Ultra-Hydrating Face Oil is a very thick, rich oil. I tried using a drop or two mixed in with my foundation and it blended beautifully but not worth the breakouts. It has a soft honey scent. Not bothersome and it did go away quite quickly. It comes in a dropper bottle. Farmacy Beauty claims that Honey Grail is non-comedogenic that it has been thoroughly tested by an independent research lab and confirmed to be non-comedogenic so it won’t clog pores. I’m not sure how this can be true being they use coconut oil and so many people have claims saying they have had breakouts or irritation due to this product. It also contains LIMONENE & LIMONENE which are added scents and I am working hard to eliminate products with added fragrance and dyes. I’d HIGHLY recommend that if you’re interested in trying this one out you get yourself a sample first. It’s $48 for 1 oz I use what I have for my hair. It works great to add some shine. I’ve also added a few drops into my body moisturizer just to try out. I keep it to my legs as my upper body can still break out from the oil. Much ❤️ @cheriefamily 🍒 #CherieCreator

Hungry, Hungry Hippo!
How adorable are these homemade soaps!?! I received these from Bausie at Beba Botantica and I’m so very lucky to try them out. They smell amazing!!! All the soaps are natural and organic used with botanic extract and essential oils. Free of sulfates, glycols, parabens & synthetic fragrance oils. I received - Charcoal Hippo Soap - Soothes angry skin and is a gentle antibacterial agent. Provides a deep cleanse for oily pores. Contains Green Clay, Activated Charcoal and Peppermint Essential Oils. Rooibos and Lemon Hippo - contains Roobios Macerate & Lemon Essential Oils. Peppermint and Poppy Seed Hippo - contains Peppermint Essential Oils & Poppy Seeds. I can’t wait to try them all out! My favorite scent has to be the Rooibos & Lemon Hippo! I’m a huge fan of lemon scents. I’ll be using these in the shower and focusing primarily on my neck and décolletage, as well as other areas of the body. I am thinking I’ll steer clear of my face due to the essential oils. I will probably try the Charcoal Hippo on my face, though. And guess what? Bebe Botantica plants one tree for every purchase made! 🌳 👏 Check them out at @bebabotantica Much ❤️🍒 #cheriecreator
A surprising reason you want to avoid doing this
So over the weekend my son came to visit. As we hung out watching tv he sat and rubbed his eyes endlessly! It’s always been a bad habit of his. Of course as his nagging mom I told him he shouldn’t be doing that and he wanted me to give him a good reason why, actual reasoning besides me just telling him to stop. So off to the internet I went. And oh boy did I learn more than I actually knew. First off we know due to the lovely Covid-19 that we should avoid touching our faces especially our eyes, nose and mouth. And we all should have known this before corona due to past virus’s. But did you know there are also beauty related reason to avoid rubbing your eyes? 👁 Let’s start with why we do it. 1) Because it feels dang good! I’ve always known that I’ve found comfort in rubbing my eyes, especially when I’m tired. But I learned that rubbing can also feel therapeutic because it can stimulate the vagus nerve, which slows down your heart rate and relieves stress. Who knew? 🤷♀️ Additionally, the rubbing stimulates your lacrimal glands, which produce tears to soothe your tired eyes. 2) Allergies 3) As mentioned above, feeling tired or possibly being sick 4) Having something in your eye ———————— Now why NOT to rub your eyes! 1) Avoid the spread of germs 2) Cause injury 3) Cause long-term eye disease 4) It makes you look less attractive – Dark Circles and Blood Shot Eyes! No thank you! Dark circles around your eyes occur for a variety of reasons, including medications, anemia, allergies, fatigue, and age. However, rubbing and scratching your eyes can also cause these circles to appear, or at least darken circles already present. Compared to the rest of your face, the skin around your eyes is the thinnest and most delicate. Whenever you rub your eyes, you potentially damage the tiny blood vessels just beneath the skin’s surface. When the blood vessels break, the blood flows into the surrounding tissue, temporarily giving your skin a darker shadowy color. If you consistently wake up with dark circles, you likely rub your eyes in your sleep. Consider wearing an eye mask to bed to cushion and protect your skin. Considering my son looks deathly sick all the time, this makes total sense! He is always rubbing those eyes and therefore has the worst hollow, dark circled eyes for a 23 year old I’ve ever seen! Maybe he will finally stop! I’ve always been one to avoid rubbing my eyes to prevent wrinkles but now I’ve got the added knowledge of avoiding dark circles! I also personally carry eye drops in my purse along with a set of tissues. If my eyes get dry or itchy I just apply a few drops and dab with the tissue! 😉 Hope this was helpful!

Hemp and Hyaluronic- great combo!
Months ago, while shopping TJMaxx, my daughter spotted this cream. She is all about CBD/Hemp and using natural, environmental safe products and we decided for $12 to give it a shot. She’s got acne prone, sensitive and combination skin. She’s got it all! 🙈 This worked great for her! It helped calm the redness and kept the acne breakouts at bay. It also kept her skin balanced, well hydrated. She used it at night. It has a very mild scent. What is it? A pampering night cream designed to supply rich nourishment and protection to your skin. This Night Cream harnesses the nutritional powers of the Hemp Seed oil to feed your skin when it needs it the most. The cream is also enriched with pure Hyaluronic Acid (HA), which forms a film at the surface of the skin offering an optimal hydration and Emulium® Mellifera, innovative emulsifier which adapts to climate and creates active textures, bringing moisturization and pleasure on application. Made in Israel. We haven’t found it priced as well as it was at TJMaxx and it’s tough to locate online. She’s since changed to a different moisturizer for both day and night PUREFORET - Centella Multi-Lotion But if you happen to be able to shop your local TJMaxx or Marshall’s and spot this it might be worth giving a try. 😉 Much ❤️🍒 #CherieCreator
I can’t believe I’ve never tried this!
I’ve braided my daughters hair to create easy waves but have never tried it on myself (that I recall). Also because my hair is longer than I’ve had it in a long time. Damn covid! The other day I was bored and decided to braid my hair after my shower. I probably managed about 10 actual braids but I thought I’d give it a try. (I did not use any styling products) Well, it actually worked! Just a simple 3-piece braid gave me the waves I like from my wave iron - without heat damage! I only wore them about 6 hours, did not sleep in them, but it worked well. I did tighter braids and next time I’m going to try looser ones to give it a different style. Pick yourselves up these elastic clear bands and style away! PS: it’s been since corona since I’ve gotten my hair done! 🙈 my roots and color are way off my comfortable zone!
The best tinted moisturizer I’ve ever used!
The Beauty Counter Dew Skin tinted moisturizer is the perfect product if you want a nice dewy finish and not a heavy makeup look. It’s so easy to apply, I just use my fingers! And a 1.35 fl oz. size runs about $45. It’s currently on sale on their website by the way! It’s very light coverage but I find it to do a good job of concealing light pigmentation and just make your face look more awake. I apply it right after I cleanse and apply my eye cream and serum. You can just use it as a replacement for your moisturizer during the day. I’ve been using it for about 3 months now and would definitely purchase it again! I’m almost out of my container anyways since I use it daily. It doesn’t have a harsh smell and is very blendable. I use about 2 pumps for the whole face. I find makeup to stay on over it pretty well and it does last almost all day, even in humid conditions. Hope this reviews helps if you’ve been on the market for a good tinted moisturizer! xx #Beauty Counter - Dew Skin[products]#[FiveStars]

Please read my previous post to know the benefits of niacinamide and why we all need one niacinamide product in our skin routines. These are my top 3 niacinamide products that I love!! I have used these three over a period of time and absolutely love all these three. NATURIUM - Niacinamide Serum 12% Plus Zinc 2% tips my chart for the best niacinamide products out there. I have currently been using this for over two months and I am seeing great results. The product itself is a very light weight serum. Gets absorbed into the skin very quickly and is not sticky or heavy. Sits well under my makeup. My skin has evened out in both texture and it’s tone. This product doesn’t have a particular fragrance and doesn’t cause any skin irritations. PAULA'S CHOICE - 10% Niacinamide Booster is my second choice on this list. This is a booster product and I used to mix this with my moisturizer. Just great results for this one too- my skin pores looked much smaller, evened out my skin and helped my skin retain its moisturizer . Glossier. - Super Pure this also another great niacinamide to add onto your skin routine. This product kinda looks like a highlighter on your face because it gives a glow. Very effective though, reduced my hyperpigmentation and helped my skin looked more clear and left it hydrated. So, in short all these three are great Niacinamide products. They were all effective, great results and evened out my skin tone and texture .
PAULA'S CHOICE-10% Niacinamide Booster
Keeping my pin straight lashes curled ALL DAY
I've been ~blessed~ with long (but straight) lashes and am ALWAYS on the hunt for new mascaras to help hold a curl. I'm nearly 100% certain that water-proof mascara is the only thing that will do the trick so that's typically what I stick to; although, if you know something I don't pls pls pls send that secret my way. Too Faced's Better Than Sex WP mascara was my go-to for a really long time, but about a year ago I heard that Loreal's Lash Paradise was a comparable dupe so that's what I've been using ever since. That being said, i'm a sucker for trying new products and while I love how this makes me lashes look, I'm looking for any recommendation for WP mascaras that: 1. Resist Clumping 2. Don't over-dry lashes 3. Will not require the soul of my first-born child to be removed L'ORÉAL - Voluminous Lash Paradise Waterproof Mascara
