Hope you take some time to pamper yourselves today. Here is my morning routine. Tonight I’m going to kick back and take a nice warm bath with OUAI - Chill Pills
and work on my self-tan. ————————- Products used in the following order: Milk MAKEUP - Vegan Milk Cleanser
INDIE LEE - CoQ-10 Toner
3 sprays Medik8 - HYDR8 B5 Liquid Rehydration Serum
4 drops PUREGEN - E.G.F Invivo Repair Serum
4-5 drops YOUTH TO THE PEOPLE - Superfood Firm and Brighten Vitamin C Serum
2 squirts CAUDALIE - Vinoperfect Radiance Serum The Brightening Solution
4 drops TATCHA - The Dewy Skin Cream
Medik8 - Eye-lift Peptides
TATCHA - The Pearl Tinted Eye Illuminating Treatment
so far I am not liking this. It seems oily and hard to blend into my eye area. Using a very small dot. FIRST AID BEAUTY - Ultra Repair Oat & Hemp Seed Dry Oil
5-6 drops ISLE OF PARADISE - Own Your Glow Kit
5-6 drops mixed in with my moisturizer TRULY - Unicorn Fruit Whipped Body Polish
Jo Malone - Seaside Crush Duo
And my Degree Deodorant —————- See my page for reviews on several of the products. I will be sharing reviews soon on the ones not done. Also, no sunscreen today as I am still staying inside a dark room due to an ongoing migraine. Otherwise I would put my sunscreen on last and probably mix my sun drops into them. I will be sure to share a am/pm MINIMAL routine soon as well. Much love 🍒 #CherieCreator

DROWN ME IN THESE
| OUAI - CHILL PILLS 6 for $30 | These bath bombs that are basically $5 each with heavy amounts of jasmine rose and consists of jojoba seed oil, safflower oil, and hemp seed oil. It’s a fizzy bath bomb that smells INCREDIBLE. Just by opening the tub, you are intoxicated by the smell of jasmine and rose 🤤 These were recently gifted to me by cherie, and after using these the other day, they made me feel SO relaxed after a super stressful week of exams. It’s the perfect amount of suds and fragrance. After the bath, my skin felt much softer than beforehand. I recommend these, especially when you compare them to Lush bathbombs that retail at at least $7-$9 OUAI - Chill Pills

The Ouai Chill Pills
I’m a huge fan of bubble baths - in fact I took one last night. There is nothing more relaxing than sinking into a hot bath 😌 I also love a good bath bomb so when The Ouai released these I knew I had to grab them! They come with six bath bombs that are shaped like pills ... get it 😏? They have a lovely floral-rose/jasmine scent that is not overpowering and just enough. They are infused with hemp seed and jojoba oil to moisturize your skin. They bubble and fizz slightly and because they are just plain white they don’t stain your tub with colors or glitters like other bath bombs. These are very sophisticated and relaxing. My only complaint is the price - the bottle is $30 for six bath bombs which breaks down to $5 a pop. OUAI - Chill Pills

“NO FAIL” RETINOL ROUTINE - PM
I shared earlier this week my “no fail” AM skincare routine the products seen in that post I’ve used time and time again. They’ve never let me down and along with the ones listed here, are repurchases that keep my skin happy and healthy! Milk MAKEUP - Vegan Milk Cleanser I like to use this cleanser when my face needs a little extra pampering. Milk Cleanser is super soft and gentle and leaves my face feeling very nourished. INDIE LEE - CoQ-10 Toner same as used in the AM. I'm from - Rice Toner I honestly cannot get enough of hydrating products, especially when I am using my retinal. I have probably five open at this time and will use them all or a few at a time. This Rice Toner is so soft and smooth. If you’re into essences or toners this is a must try! I splash a few drops into my hand and then pat it onto my face leaving it wet until I add.... THE inkey LIST - Hyaluronic Acid Serum I lock the Rice Toner in with HA. I am indoors most of the time, a bit of a recluse, but my skin still get very dry so I lock in the hydration first and end with the moisturizer! Medik8 - Crystal Retinal this is a bit expensive but well worth it to me because within weeks of use I saw significant changes. I’ve been asked my so many what I use for skincare as I have hardly any lines and I used to worship the sun with no sunscreen (⚠️) But I’ve been lucky and take very good care of my skin now. You only need a pea size amount of retinal for your face and add it to DRY skin. YOUTH TO THE PEOPLE - Superberry Hydrate + Glow Dream Mask last up is my new favorite (on my second bottle), the YTTP Dream Mask. You only need a small amount with this and I go through about two a year as I use it every night. It’s gentle enough to use nightly but if you’re using other treatments you may want to alternate nights (if you have sensitive skin as it has vitamin c). You can put a light layer of moisturizer on before applying this but for me, this is plenty. The Crystal Retinal I use is non-drying so I am good with just the mask. But if your retinol tends to dry your face, I’d recommend adding a light layer of moisturizer before the dream mask. ⭐️ That’s it! You could eliminate the 2 toners (Co-Q10 & Rice Toner) and simplify it down to 4 steps. I’ll be sharing my PM exfoliating routine soon! One of my favorites!!! I never thought I’d love exfoliating so much 😂 Much ❤️ my @cherie family! 🍒 #cheriecreator

MY MOST USED “NO FAIL” AM ROUTINE
The products you see have been products I’ve been using time and again for two years, around the time I got serious about my skincare life. These steps I never skip although I have added others or tried different brands. I will say again that I have used a more expensive version of Hyaluronic Acid and while it truly felt soft and comforting to my face, I don’t feel this is where my high dollars need to be spent. INDIE LEE - Brightening Cleanser best cleanser around! You can even leave it on longer and use it as a mask! This helps target dull, uneven textures, dark spots and pores. It’s a gel like texture. I am all about products that brighten my skin. INDIE LEE - CoQ-10 Toner next up is to tone and what better with one that will hydrate, soothe and protect your skin with the antioxidant coenzyme Q10 and Hyaluronic Acic! Plump that face up! I like to splash just a few drops of water on my face first then come in with Co-10. All we can do to help seal that hydration 💦 THE inkey LIST - Hyaluronic Acid Serum Then comes HA to really lock in that hydration. So may find it hard as people claim it can be “sticky” or “tacky” but I go right it after spraying my Co-Q10 and do a quick rub and then immediately tap it in. Then let it completely dry. If you don’t, you can have your following products pill, and believe me, that’s not fun! I believe everyone should have HA in their routine. There are so many variations out there at many different cost points but if you do your research and are comfortable using what works for you, go for it. Mine costs me $6.80 a month. I use it both am & pm. FARMACY - Very Cherry Bright 15% Clean Vitamin C Serum with Acerola Cherry depicted in the picture as the cute little 🍒 is VCB. I am currently out and my order is taking much longer than I’d like. But I have probably used almost 10 different brands of vitamin C (in comments) and I’ll still be goin back to Farmacy. I love the light scent and I had seen results pretty quickly, never any side effects. TATCHA - The Dewy Skin Cream I have a handful of creams I do adore and I could really probably spend less than dear ole Tatcha, but oh I do so love this cream. It just makes my face so happy. It’s a bit richer but my mother who has oily skin loves it! If I am hanging inside - tbh that’s 90% of my life - I do a light amount and then follow up about 10 mins later with sunscreen. Supergoop! - Unseen Sunscreen Broad Spectrum SPF 40 I do wear sunscreen indoors although I’m never near direct light. Life of a migrainer! 🤯but I figure one can’t aver be too careful. Plus I have ones open unfinished from the summer. But it is my stance that, yes, you should weat sunscreen indoors. It’s your best line of defense! Unseen Sunscreen makes me feel as if I have nothing on! My most used, never fail AM routine! ❤️ @cheriefam 🍒

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. Much ❤️ my @cheriefamily 🍒 #CherieCreator

Real Results!
What has been your most recent influenced product(s)? I’d say mine is most definitely Medik8 from none other than @boydoesbeauty After his video chat with Dan from Medik8 I had to give his “must haves" a try! I’ve been working with Medik8 - Crystal Retinal since February and can’t stop raving about it. I started at level 1 but quickly jumped to 6 as I felt I wasn’t getting results I wanted with my mature skin. I will now be transitioning into level 10 as soon as I finish up what left in my level 6 container. These babies last a long while! Well worth the money! I’ve been using The Ordinary - Hyaluronic Acid 2% + B5 for a long time now but I’m not sure I can ever go back. I used the example of driving a Ferrari and going back to your basic Nissan (yes, that’s what I drive) when comparing these two formulas. Medik8 - HYDR8 B5 Liquid Rehydration Serum is like pure silk! I can feel everywhere it touches my skin. I feel my other skincare products work better since I started using this. My skin feels instantly hydrated and much softer. Silky smooth! The Medik8 - Eye-lift Peptides is amazing! I have seen dramatic results in the firming of my eyes as well as a lift in my upper eyelids. As we age the skin on the upper eyelid can tend to sag. This beauty does it all; fills in fine-lines, reduces dark circles and puffiness, and gives that lift we all need. 😉 I’ve just placed a reorder of their Medik8 - Full Lash & Brow Advanced Lash & Brow Serum serum. The results I’ve seen with this are what my dreams are made of. I have very sparse brows and just into 2 weeks, I had seen a difference. I actually had to trim the hairs for the first time in forever! I can’t wait to see the results after 2 months! I haven’t noticed a change in my lashes but I am going to take some before pictures cause I think that will help document any changes. And finally, Medik8 - Clarity Peptides This contains three potent actives: 10% niacinamide which calms and soothes redness, blotchy skin and blemishes, Crystalide peptide which adds light reflection for a translucent skin effect, and zinc PCA that minimises sebum production and balances skin bacteria to tackle blemishes. Achieve visibly perfected, luminous skin when you need it most (via website). I have yet to see any noticeable changes with the Peptides but I also know it can take 2-3 months for this to happen. This probably won’t be a repurchase for me as I feel I can get the same benefits from The Ordinary - Niacinamide 10% + Zinc 1% I’d have to do more research to be certain, though. Much ❤️ my @cheriefamily 🍒 #CherieCreator

Part II Empties - Repurchase?
ALL OF THESE I’VE REVIEWED BEFORE IN PREVIOUS POSTS SO PLEASE SEE THEM FOR MORE IN-DEPTH REVIEWS. (Except GR) Medik8 - HYDR8 B5 Liquid Rehydration Serum This HA is AMAZING! It feels like butter! HYDR8 has many great attributes but one that really makes me want to keep purchasing: 💦 Hydr8 B5 contains multiple sizes of hyaluronic acid. The smaller sizes are able to penetrate deep into the skin and draw hydration up from the lower layers. Larger sizes are too big to get into the skin’s network, but sit on top of the complexion acting as a hydration reservoir to continuously feed the upper layers of the skin with water. I can absolutely feel exactly where this touches my face and where it has missed. It’s so good! BUT do I need to spend $50 on HA? I’m just not convinced. I have another bottle I received free with purchase and I’m going to really watch and put it to the test to see if I can notice a difference between a $10 HA and a $50 one. ⭐️ repurchase - TBD GLOW RECIPE - Plum Plump Hyaluronic Acid Serum This was a mini size I added on a Sephora perk. I really liked it and decided to purchase the full-size when I got 20% off. This HA has multiple sizes of hyaluronic acid as well. It absorbs nicely without leaving any sticky residue. When I am working with HA I’m looking for them to add a fair amount of hydration to my skin. I have very fine lines in my forehead and when my skin is dry they are noticeable. As soon as I add HA they are almost undetectable! So HA is a favorite of mine! ⭐️ repurchase - undecided INDIE LEE - Brightening Cleanser A cleanser I’ll always keep in stock. I’ve used this for years. love that you can leave this on for an extra 10-20 mins to use as a brightening mask! ⭐️ repurchase - Yes! FARMACY - Honeymoon Glow Serum I’ve been using this for 2.5 years and have yet to find something I’d give it up for. I’ve talked about this serum so much (and their other products) people came to know me as the “Farmacy girl.” It’s the one product I could never give up! 👊 ⭐️ repurchase - hell ya! There ya go, all my empties over the last 5-6 months. I probably had more but I can be bad at remembering to save my samples/minis to review. ❤️🍒

AM Routine to Hydrate + Reset Skin
Ive had more irritated skin that usual these days so I’ve been reaching for these products in the mornings to soothe my skin and give gentle hydration. They’re helping get my skin back on track. BIOSSANCE - Squalane + Tea Tree Cleansing Gel I got the mini tea tree set from Biossance and it has been a game changer on days when my skin is acting up. This gel cleanser gently foams, smells amazing, and really helps when I’m starting to get acne (usually just right before my period but more these days because of maskne!) Id love a travel size as I really only use this as needed a few times a month but if I were more acne prone it would be a staple Hanskin - Hyaluron Skin Essence I love this stuff! Probably not strictly necessary but the watery texture feels great and I find it helps other products, like my superfood serum sink in better BIOSSANCE - BIOSSANCE Squalane + Peptide Eye Gel YOUTH TO THE PEOPLE - Superfood Hydrate + Firm Peptide Eye Cream I have a lot of eye cream in my stash right now so I’ve been going crazy and using the Biossance eye gel under something richer. I like that this lets me target circles and then also intense hydration! YOUTH TO THE PEOPLE - Superfood Firm and Brighten Vitamin C Serum this is a great all-around serum for hydration, firming, and brightness. It’s best when used on a wet face since the HA really sucks up a lot of moisture. This serum is super gentle so I like using it when I don’t want a very active routine and want to hydrate. YOUTH TO THE PEOPLE - Adaptogen Deep Moisture Cream with Ashwagandha + Reishi this baby is a staple for me! I typically use it at night year round, but this month I’ve been reaching for it in the morning too since the winter weather has made me much drier. This is so hydrating but lightweight and really soothing on the skin! BIOSSANCE - Squalane + Tea Tree Balancing Oil like the tea tree cleanser, I only use this a few times a month as needed. It does an amazing job helping to clear out oncoming breakouts. It’s lightweight, sinks in fast, and I love the tea tree smell! I’d love a .3oz size of this since I do use it so infrequently this little sample has lasted me a few months so don’t think I could ever justify buying a full bottle Hope you enjoy my routine! Let me know if you want more info on any of these products 💚

Unbelievable Result in Few days 🤤😍😍
🔗I'm making a review of this serum because lI've realized it's actually one of the best products I've ever used, and here's why. 🔗This serum can either be your favorite beauty product or something that confuses you. So lll explain how to use it properly and why it is so great. The vitamin C derivative is Magnesium Ascorbyl Phosphate, a water soluble and stable form of vitamin C. 🖇This makes it safe for use in clear glass containers. So if you're worried about oxidation, this one should not oxidize like the notoriously unstablel- ascorbic acid. 🖇The first ingredient is water, followed by citric acid, lactic acid and malic acid. The exfoliation quality of this serum is very gentle yet effective for brightening the complexion. Many vitamin C serums are highly irritating and irritating products are not going to help your skin, there is no point in continuing use of a product that leaves you bright red and irritated constantly. 🔗This also has panthenol, two types of Hyaluronic acid and aloe Vera to hydrate the skin deeply. Peptides in the formula help to train skin cells to act younger, rebuild collagen and firm up the skin. And I have noticed that effect, my skin feels firmer. 🔗 Antioxidant rich green tea, kale and spinach provide protection against free radical damage, making this perfect for use in the daytime under SPF. So, on to how to use this. Do not apply it to dry skin or it will feel sticky. Apply this to doamp skin after cleansing, or after misting your skin with something water based like after misting your skin with something woater based like the Evian Mineral Water Facial Mist. This helps it to sink in deeply and also prevents the Hyaluronic acid from pulling water out of your skin. Trust me, this keeps the serum from feeling tacky. The feeling of this serum is wonderful, it feels refreshing and comforting. It spreads nicely since the consistency is very thin. I use 1 and a half pumps on my wet face and pat it in and l also get my neck and backs of my hands. This doesn't cause any pilling/dry skin patches; it just leaves me feeling so hydrated and ready for the day. ✅This serum is incredible. It's perfect for people with sensitive skin who want a vegan/cruelty free/silicone free serum that will hydrate, anti age and brighten the skin and protect against free radical damage. I give it 9/10 and I would repurchase, given the price is actually not terrible in comparison to so many other vitamin C serums. A little goes a long way and I enjoy using this daily! YOUTH TO THE PEOPLE - Superfood Firm and Brighten Vitamin C Serum

All my lovely moisturizers emptied in 2020
I will get another jar of TATCHA - The Dewy Skin Cream for next winter and fresh - Lotus Anti-Aging Night Moisturizer when everything else Going on is emptied. I can’t live without moisturizers, day or night.

Just okay for such an expensive product :/
First Impression: I opened the box and WOW is this small for $20! I never shop at Sephora and the only reason I bought this was because I received a $25 gift card recently but I was at least expecting this to be a little bit bigger. Like .5 fl oz instead of .34 maybe? I have heard amazing things from dozens of skincare sites so I couldn’t wait to try it! Opening: When I opened the tin, it looked thick due to its color, but once I put some on it was VERY thin. When I use my regular Clinique Moisture Surge (which is super hydrating) it is very lightweight but still a little bit heavier than this. Smells great! Next day: I have to say the combo of this and THE BODY SHOP - Jumbo Tea Tree Oil has me waking up with the smoothest skin but lately my skin has been feeling much drier due to the cold (not on just my face) and I don’t think it is as hydrating as I expected it to be. The cream dries very quickly which makes me want to put another layer on and when I wake up I still have dry spots. Like I said I feel VERY smooth but not as hydrated as I’d like. Verdict: I feel like this would definitely benefit me better around the summer/springtime when I’m not looking for complete re-hydration of my skin and more of a moisturizer but I do not think this is the holy grail I was expecting it to be. Try it out if you get the opportunity because all skin is different! But for my combination skin and hormonal acne, it’s gonna be a no from me, dawg :(

Ultimate 2-in-1 Product 💜🧜🏾‍♀️
This is the perfect under eye treatment for any skin type. Not only does this treatment brighten upon immediate application, but has ingredients that help to illuminate the under eye over time. I would largely contribute that the niacinamide which is known to visibly brighten and firm after only a few weeks of use. Not only is this formula non-comedogenic, non-irritating, and cruelty-free but it also contains no mineral oils or synthetic fragrances. I find many “clean” products at Sephora still contain mineral oils or other products that I’m still not a fan of, but this one gets the all clear 👍🏻 My main critique is the lack of colour options. Since this product was released over 3 years ago they have not launched any new colours. I personally find that the shade range is limiting, and is almost too dark for my own skin during the winter months. Will I be repurchasing - For sure! I recommend this product to everyone I know, especially any of my friend’s mom’s since it works wonders on their under eye while providing coverage!

I should be studying, but Tatcha mail!📦📚
So I’m totally supposed to be studying right now, but I got a Tatcha package & I’m so distracted! They recently had a 20% off sale so I picked up some old favorites & new things to check out. Among them, this beautiful book written by the creator & founder of Tatcha, Victoria Tsai. I figured I why not add to my growing skincare book collection📚 #Tatcha - Pure Skin book[products]#[FiveStars] $18 -published in 2018 (available for $6 - bookoutlet.com) Took a break from studying to peek inside this beauty... The delicate, mainly watercolor illustrations by Samantha Hahn, are simply gorgeous. Only a little over 125 pages, it’s a quick read, but it’s so beautiful & full of helpful tips. Victoria Tsai breaks down the heritage, importance, ingredients & effects of each step in ‘The Geisha Ritual’ The book also discusses other elements of Japanese self care & health practices. TATCHA - Camellia Gold Spun Lip Balm $30/.21 oz One of my all time favorite lip balms. The first ingredient is Squalane (derived of Olive, not Shark liver) so it’s super moisturizing. It contains beneficial Rice extracts, including both germ & bran oil. It has other nourishing ingredients like Camellia seed oil, Licorice extract, Green Tea leaf extract & Algae! Oh yes, & 23-karat gold is the last ingredient, kinda just for fun. Gold does have anti-inflammatory & antioxidant properties, & even antibacterial properties at a nano particle level, but because gold isn’t soluble, flakes this large likely produce no anti-aging effects, but are also completely safe. TATCHA - Aburatorigami Japanese Blotting Papers $12/40 sheets Another Tatcha favorite of mine. My absolute holy grail blotting papers. I noticed the package is different than last time, & I know changes may have been made by Unilever, but I’ll address all those things in my upcoming full reviews of all these products. Here’s the new things I’m going to try! I’ve tried many of the Rice Polishes, but not this one yet. I’m hoping this Pearl eye treatment can do a lil sumthin sumthin for my dark circles... TATCHA - The Pearl Tinted Eye Illuminating Treatment TATCHA - Calming Foaming Enzyme Powder 🍚 Have you tried these? I’d love to know your experience! Later babes💜 back to studying lol 😝

First Aid Beauty; mini brand review part 2
I didn’t think I’d hit character limit on my first post so here is part two of my First Aid Beauty mini review! If you have any comments on want more in-depth reviews please comment! FIRST AID BEAUTY - Ultra Repair BarriAIR Cream Safe for Sensitive Skin - I absolutely loved this product but I do recognize the texture is not for everyone. It has this really unique gel texture that can almost feel a little slimey but once you work it into the skin it does absorb really well. It’s perfect for those with oily skin. It will keep you hydrated without feeling heavy. I do feel though because the product bubbles on top I went through it really fast. FIRST AID BEAUTY - Ultra Repair Oat & Hemp Seed Dry Oil - My favorite dry oil! Because it is a dry oil it absorbs a lot faster into the skin without leaving a greasy mess making it perfect for all skin types. It has colloidal oatmeal to soothe the skin and cannabis sativa seed oil which is a really great hydrator. They work together to help calm and soothe the skin. This also helped reduce a lot of redness in my skin. FIRST AID BEAUTY - Ultra Repair Hyaluronic Hydrating Primer - I got this in gratis at work and while I think it’s a decent primer it’s not my favorite. To me it smells like cucumber nair (which none of my coworkers smell so it could just be me). I do have oily skin though so I recognize it’s not for my skin type but it almost feels like a lightweight moisturizer in the skin. I do think it is worth a shot for those with dry skin. FIRST AID BEAUTY - FAB Pharma Arnica Relief & Rescue Mask - This is like their Instant Oatmeal mask’s cooler, older sister. If you have irritated skin you’re going to love this. Arnica is the highlighted ingredient which stimulates blood cell activity to help increase skin healing time and reduce inflammation. It helps reduce the appearance of redness, dehydration, irritation, stress, and tightness. It’s so unique as it’s not like your regular wash off mask. You apply it and as time goes on the mask absorbs into the skin. At the end of 15 minutes you can either towel off excess or rub in what’s left over. It leaves your skin super smooth and hydrated. It has a whipped texture and slightly blue tint from blue tansy oil. I’ve been also loving this after using a chemical exfoliator as it’s gentle but reduces any irritation I might have.

Take a peek inside my Skin Cabinets
Since my husband decided to use the guest bath I have claimed both cabinets....and all my products still don’t fit in them!! I’ll share my bathroom sink area in another post, along with my mini fridge and backup shelf. My fingers are tired from tagging all the products right now 🙈 Let me know if there are any you’re curious about. I believe most products you can find already reviewed on my page. But if there is one not posted about, let me know and I’d be happy to share my thoughts with you. Some of my must haves are: Farmacy Beauty- Honeymoon Glow, Better Daze Ahead & Cheer Up Indie Lee - CO-Q10 Toner and & Brightening Wash Medik8- Crystal Retinal & HYDR8 + B5 Caudalie - Radiance Serum Sunscreen! Sunscreen! Sunscreen! Youth to The People - Superberry Mask, Energy Facial The Ordinary- Niacinamide & Hyaluronic & the Facial Peel Elemis - Suerfood Mask Many of these have been repurchases. If a product is sitting out on my counter or in my cabinets, I’m enjoying using them. I have baskets of products that didn’t work so well for me but I keep them for friends to try or to create fun texture art. It’s taken me at least an entire year to gain the collection I have. I had subscribed to many subscription boxes so a good majority of products came to me that way. I haven’t received PR in a long time and the few items I did receive were from some small companies. I don’t mind receiving PR/gifts I just am very picky about what I will use so sometimes the offers don’t jive with them. Let’s see your skincare cabinet ☺️ @CreateOnCherie @CheriePick

She is THICK!
Do you like your moisturizer thick? If so, you’ll love this vegan beauty by Milk Makeup. I’ve sampled this twice now, able to use it for up to two weeks. Although I typically like to use a product for a good four weeks, I feel I am able to give an adequate review. As I stated, Milk MAKEUP - Vegan Milk Moisturizer is THICK! It’s recommended for normal to dry skin and has a 4.5 ⭐️ review on Sephora as well as good reviews on various social media platforms. One of my favorites about this cream is it is fragrance free!!! 👏 I HAVE NORMAL TO DRY SKIN. LEANING MORE TO DRY AND A BIT SENSITIVE THIS WINTER ❄️ I found I needed about a thumbnail size to cover my face and it spread and sank into my skin quite easily. I did not find it to leave any residue at all. I do believe if you have oily skin this one is going to be a bit too much for you and you will not like the texture or feeling on your skin. My face felt completely hydrated immediately after using. Hours later, my skin still felt nourished! For me this would definitely be a moisturizer I would purchase. It’s a great option during the winter months or I could use it in the summer as a moisturizing sleeping mask. I only took one ⭐️ away as it cannot be used by every skin type and if it is in a bottle as it is, I wish they had given a spoon or spatula as it is unhygienic to use your fingers to scoop out product. $38 for 1.7 oz ——- Do you use any Milk Makeup Products? I picked up the Milk MAKEUP - Day + Night Serum and Mask Face Set and I have a Milk MAKEUP - Lip + Cheek Milk MAKEUP - KUSH High Volume Mascara and Milk MAKEUP - Vegan Milk Cleanser I LOVE the Milk Cleanser (a gift from Cherie) I’ve reviewed before and will do and updated review. I also need to do a review on all the others. I’m not a big fan of the skincare products besides the Cleanser and Moisturizer. I felt the others didn’t do much for me. I bit too gimeky and didn’t pack enough punch to see results. —— ❤️🍒

Milk Makeup Vegan Milk Cleanser
Hello Cherie Beauty Lovers! Today is the day that the truth is coming out! This Specific Cleanser by Milk Makeup is absolute horrid, and very terrible to say the least. The Vegan Milk Cleanser is by far the worst cleanser that has been tried on my skin. Coming from a Oily in summer/ Combination in Winter and Sensitive skin type. This very cleanser has made me dry like the Sahara Desert, not only that but it has given me red bumps every single time I have ever use this. I received this product in the Cherie box contest and I do appreciate Cherie company sending me this but this really isn’t suiting my skin and has not resulted in my favor. But PLEASE DO ME A FAVOR, PLEASE DO NOT WASTE YOUR HARD WORKED EARNED MONEY ON THIS CRAPPY PRODUCT.

Sample sets emptied in 2020
There are two products I have purchased the full size and will continue purchase wiener they empty: Murad - Night Fix Enzyme Treatment I put on my bedside table and massage to my face right before I’m ready to turn the light off and snooze away. The soothing smell just so relaxing and put me to sleep. CAUDALIE - Vinoperfect Radiance Serum The Brightening Solution light weight, milky texture and effectiveness for my dark spots. Love! A bit on the pricey side but all worth it!

Top Serums of 2020!
I like all these serums for different reasons. For exfoliating: SUNDAY RILEY - Good Genes All in One Lactic Acid Treatment This has been my go too this whole year, so creamy and hydrating, but still gently exfoliates. One of the best serums I’ve tried to get rid of blemishes and texture. For brightening: CAUDALIE - Vinoperfect Radiance Serum The Brightening Solution I’m very sensitive to Vitamin C, so this has been my go too for four years for brightening sun spots and hyperpigmentation. It also hydrates my skin which is an added bonus. For summer: THE inkey LIST - Niacinamide Oil Control Serum This is a recent find, I found this gem in March while my skin was really breaking out. During the summer, this serum was really lightweight, but a great niacinamide serum for more combo-dry skin as it contains hyaluronic acid. For winter: Dr Dennis Gross - Stress Rescue Super Serum with Niacinamide This serum is so creamy and beautiful in texture. It hydrates, but still has that niacinamide to help even the skin tone. This also has goji which is a great antioxidant!

review my routine for next week! 🧖🏾‍♀️
does anyone else listen to the ‘naked beauty’ podcast?? it’s one of my favorites! i just listened to the two episodes with the founders of golde and dr barbara sturm skincare lines, and they both recommended that we take it easy on acids and active serums. i generally try to take this approach anyway, but i’m going to particularly focus on that philosophy this week, to see how my skin reacts. here’s what’s in the lineup: Neutrogena - Naturals Purifying Facial Cleanser for AM cleansing - very affordable and gets the job done. a little drying, but not stripping. TATCHA - The Rice Polish Foaming Enzyme Powder for PM cleansing - i received this in a sampler kit and i enjoy it. the gentle physical exfoliation is a major plus. it’s just so pricey - still on the fence about investing in a full size product. DRUNK ELEPHANT - C-Firma Vitamin C Day Serum for AM - i get hyperpigmentation and can have an uneven skin tone, so this is a staple. i’m open to trying new vitamin c products though. DRUNK ELEPHANT - Virgin Marula Luxury Facial Oil for PM - i really do love this oil. it’s very gentle and non-greasy. it’s expensive for a single oil, but it has lasted a long time. TATCHA - The Dewy Skin Cream for AM moisture - my OG favorite that always gets the job done. DRUNK ELEPHANT - Protini Polypeptide Cream for PM moisture - i am trying this out. it has been enjoyable so far, but it’s a little thin for my skin. i probably won’t purchase the full size, but i’m considering the lala product when my laneige sleeping mask runs out. Glossier. - Invisible Shield Daily Sunscreen for AM sunscreen - this isn’t my most favorite sunscreen, but i hate wasting products that do work. i’m trying to empty this one right now. the product is smooth and effective, but i don’t necessarily need the dewy sheen that it provides. excited to see what’s in everyone else’s lineup! 👩🏾‍🏫

Today’s AM routine ☀️

goodmol
Today’s AM routine ☀️ goodmolecules Cleansing Balm   I wanted to use a nice buttery balm this morning after tret use last night and this hit all the spots!🙌🏽 Glides on the face and provides instant nourishment and moisture- formulated with sea buckthorn oil, camellia oil, and shea butter it removes all traces of make-up/oils and daily grime. It was a treat to use! I’ll be reviewing this after a few more uses so stay tuned! goodmolecules Hyaluronic Acid serum - I was so happy to receive this as I’ve just ran out of my TO HA ... this felt a little thinner in consistency to that of TO’s which I liked as it dries quickly and didn’t leave a sticky residue. Review to follow soon. drunkelephant C-Firma-Ok so I’m still getting used to this one. I have had a bit of a stinging sensation upon applying at times so I’ve started buffering it with HA. Hope my skin builds up a tolerance to this soon as I want to use this everyday for all its benefits. origins Gin-Zing Gel Moisturiser- The best summer moisturiser 🙌🏽 bybiy Blueberry booster- mixed drops of this into my moisturiser. This provides powerful protection against blue light. Which Has really started to worry me lately! I’m always either on my phone, on a computer or in front of the TV 🤣 Not good! larocheposayuki finishing with a little dab of Anthelios spf 50+ before going in with my make up.

Indie Lee Discovery Kit

• Bri
Indie Lee Discovery Kit • Brightening Cleanser [Love, love, love this! It will probably be the only item in the set that I re-purchase, and I would literally almost buy it simply bc of how WONDERFUL it smells—so fruity! It’s lovely. The product itself is a light gel that’s easy to use and rinse. It has 🍓 Seed Oil & 🍅 Extracts, which are packed with vitamins and antioxidants. The tomato extract also has gentle exfoliating properties, which is another thing I love about this product! Multiple benefits in one—cleansing, brightening, & exfoliating!] • CoQ-10 Toner [My second favorite in the bunch. Highly considering a full-sized purchase. It’s alcohol-free, with great ingredients: Coenzyme Q10, Hyaluronic Acid, Aloe Vera, Chamomile, Sage, Papaya & Cucumber Extracts. My skin always feels very balanced, never dry or stripped after using this toner, and I’ve nearly finished the little bottle!] • Squalene Facial Oil [This product is fine. Hydrating, as it should be, but it didn’t wow me or anything. I’ll layer it under other things for added hydration and finish the bottle, but there are much more exciting oils on my shelf, so it’s hard to make myself reach for this. It is 100% pure, olive-derived squalene oil though, so if you’re looking for something that leaves out all the other bs and just provides moisture to the skin, this could work perfectly for you!]

Tatcha Dewy Skin Cream
Tatcha Dewy Skin Cream
Raise your hand if your a fan of Tatcha Dewy Skin Cream 🙋‍♀️ I picked this up when I first got into my skincare beauty back in May and just savored it! It is on the heavier side more tailored for dry skin fans but I still loved it. Especially for its dewy qualities ✨ But I was saving it for the winter months as I have combination skin and get drier through the winter. Then when my mom came out to visit she fell instantly in love and I decided to gift it to her. I miss this beauty and may have to pick it up on a sale once again.

My Secret to Hydrated and Glowing Skin 🌟
My Secret to Hydrated and Glowing Skin 🌟
So what’s the secret 🤫? 😱 my daytime routine is completely different from my nighttime routine! Okay, it’s not really a secret. But I have a few am and pm essentials! Skin cells regenerate while we sleep 💤 so it’s important to incorporate targeted products at different times of the day. 🌟Morning product line up: ▪️I start with a gentle cleanser like the Eminence Mangosteen Daily Resurfacing Cleanser. It smells like mango 🥭 and doesn’t strip my skin of natural oils. ▪️A spritz of MARIO BADESCU - Facial Spray with Aloe, Herbs and Rosewater gives me an extra boost of moisture and glow ✨ ▪️I am obsessed with the BABOR - Collagen Cream it is a miracle anti-aging cream that melts into my skin. It’s packed with skin firming peptides and hyaluronic acid. It’s on the pricier side but totally worth it! ▪️I top off my morning glow up with COOLA - Mineral Face SPF30 Matte Cucumber We mustn’t ever skip out on SPF. I love this formula because it’s matte and doesn’t cause streaky foundation. 🌙 Nighttime wind down: ▪️To wash away the day, I love the Doctor Babor Cleansing Foam. It removes dirt, makeup and preps my skin for major moisture intake. ▪️ For pesky makeup I can’t remove with my cleanser, I use REVITALASH COSMETICS - Micellar Water Lash Wash for stubborn liner and mascara. It’s not oily and lash extension safe. ▪️ 1-2x a week I use the DERMA•E - Overnight Peel . It brightens with non-abrasive AHAs and exfoliates while I sleep. I wake up with brighter, firmer skin. This one is a MUST-HAVE. If I don’t do a peel... ▪️I use a targeted eye cream, serum and the Doctor Babor Pro EGF & Collagen Cream before sleepy time. This moisturizer is fragrance free and supports the skin’s own natural rejuvenation process with polypeptides and epidermal growth factors.

~ Drunk Elephant “The Littles” Review pt. 2 ~
~ Drunk Elephant “The Littles” Review pt. 2 ~
In my first post, I reviewed the 4 products I would NOT be repurchasing in DRUNK ELEPHANT - The Littles In this post I am sharing the 4 products I will be repurchasing and why. I was impressed overall by the 8 Drunk Elephant products, but these 4 are my favorites. The price point of Drunk Elephant products make it so I am unable to try the the full version of all of their products. I am happy with the purchase of “The Littles,” as I am now able to repurchase full sizes of the products I love. 4. DRUNK ELEPHANT - Beste No. 9 Jelly Cleanser Deluxe Sample This cleanser was great! I personally love a glycerin cleanser, and this did a great job removing makeup from my skin without feeling harsh. My skin felt clean after use, the formulation is gentile and caused no irritation. It’s a product I plan on repurchasing, The only reason it is at number 4 3. DRUNK ELEPHANT - B-Hydra Intensive Hydration Serum I originally thought this product was a moisturizer, but it is actually a hydration serum. I used this during the day and it kept my skin from getting dry and lasted all day. I was extremely pleased with the results, the texture is light and goes on well under a moisturizer. This is one I will be repurchasing and am looking forward to trying out more in the Winter when my skin tends to be more dry. 2. DRUNK ELEPHANT - T.L.C. Framboos Glycolic Resurfacing Night Serum This product was the most pleasant surprise for me. It pairs great with their T.L.C Baby Facial, I use the facial about once a week and T.L.C night Serum in between uses at night, and let me tell you my skin stays soft all week! I have struggles to find a good AHA to use at night, this is my new go to. The price is a bit high, but worth it in my opinion. I will be repurchasing. 1. DRUNK ELEPHANT - Protini Polypeptide Cream This moisturizer is incredible. The texture is amazing, it is not thick like most hydrating moisturizers I have used. I put this on and it immediately absorbed into my skin and left it feeling hydrated. This is my go to nighttime moisturizer. I have already recommended it to so many people, and have repurchased the full sized product- I cannot get enough.
