NEW FIND! And I’m pleasantly surprised!?
It was time to get a new moisturizer. I was currently using the HONEST - Hydrogel Cream paired with the PAULA'S CHOICE - Omega+ Complex Moisturizer , RADHA BEAUTY - Rosehip Oil , and timeless SKIN CARE - Squalane Oil 100% Pure because I have pretty dry skin. I love both of those moisturizers (although I’m not fond of all the Paula’s choice Omega+ complex moisturizer ingredients, but I loooooove the texture and feeling of it ) and love my oils (I won’t stop using the oils), but knew I needed a richer cream and also wanted to keep it down to just one cream, for time and my bank accounts sake. So if you’ve seen my last post, I was deciding between 3 brands but I couldn’t decide and was also nervous to try a new moisturizer, even though I knew I needed one, because I’m also acne prone so a new moisturizer to me was just terrifying lol. I was about to just get my usual HONEST - Hydrogel Cream because I knew it didn’t break me out and I like it a lot, although not quite as moisturizing as I need, it was on the safer side and I can’t imagine going a day without a moisturizer on this Sahara desert of a face!!! But then I discovered this brand I’ve never seen before? It’s called Awake Human. It’s not even a listing on Cherie for me to add the product! I read the ingredients and was intrigued (scroll through pics to see ingredients list), but because of my fear of new moisturizers, I was hesitant.. but I decided to bite the bullet because the ingredients looked amazing, was cheaper than Paula’s choice and the honest beauty’s moisturizer, but had the same amount of product. I received it a few days ago and I am in love!!!!! Soooooo rich and creamy and hydrating feeling, and it had the same smooth, rich, texture as the Paula’s Choice omega moisturizer, that I love so much!!! It comes in a nice little pump type of packaging, which I like. Keeps bacteria and gunk out. If you scroll through my pictures, you’ll see it. And a little bit goes a long way! The picture you see of the product on my fingers is the amount I use, but you can totally use less, especially if you have more oily or normal skin. I just like a lot of moisturizer! Lol I’ve noticed my face is much less dry feeling and looks smoother with less texture. I will keep you updated, but I think this is my new fave!!!! I’m so excited lol. Here the link the purchase: https://www.amazon.com/dp/B07NWXJYVK/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_api_glc_fabc_YHI-Fb9BRJKT0?_encoding=UTF8&psc=1 If you’re hesitant but intrigued like I was, I strongly encourage you to just try it. And if it happens that doesn’t work for your face, because remember, everyone is different and skincare is not a one size fits all, then it would most definitely be a really really nice hand cream, that would fit nicely in your bag. Have you heard of this brand before? And if so, have you used anything from them?
Help me choose my new skin care routine!
HELPPPPP!!!!! I’m trying to build a new skin care routine, but having such a hard time deciding which of these 3 brands I should choose!? If you use or used any of these brands, please let me know what you thought about them and which brand you think I should go with, please!!! I appreciate you so much for this!

Is ￼glycerin better than hyaluronic acid?￼
Would you use glycerin as a hydrator/moisturizer? now - Solutions, Vegetable Glycerin What if I told you that it acts exactly as hyaluronic acid? Now would you? Yes, glycerin is definitely a less “trendy” version, but it is A LOT more affordable, and it is in fact, a humectant. What that means is, it grabs on to water and help hydrate your skin, or even your hair! It can pull water from the atmosphere, and can even pull water from the deeper layers of your skin, to help plump up surface skin cells and hydrate your skin. As a result, it helps improve moisture retention, skin barrier function, and can help smooth out wrinkles and fine lines. So, after learning what you know now, would you be willing to try straight glycerin on your skin!? I use it! But I use it as a mask and wash it off after a few minutes.

Swipe to see what my skin looks like today 🥴
The first picture you see was my skin just a few days ago... the second one is today.. This is just to show that we are all human and it’s okay to have a bad day!!!! We all go through it, every single human on the universe. Be easy on yourself. You’re still beautiful. A pimple should not make or break your day. EVERY PERSON GOES THROUGH IT!!!! Please, do not beat yourself up. I used to fixate on every single pic mole, blackhead, and pore that was in my face. If I was going through a breakout, I would stare in the mirror a million times throughout the day and just tear myself down, staring at myself. Now, if I have a pimple here and there, I look in the mirror ONLY because I have to.. not because of acne and that helped the insecurity TREMENDOUSLY and now I could give two sh***. I just give myself a little more love and wait for it to blow over, and heal. I hope this helps you, if you’re going through it right now.

NEW PRODUCT &Full skincare/no makeup makeup look
My last few posts I talked about the free gift I received from Cherie! Since I made the leaderboard, @cherie@CheriePickgifted me YOUTH TO THE PEOPLE - Superfood Hydrate + Firm Peptide Eye Cream and this is my first time ever using it! I incorporated it in my whole skincare/“no makeup” makeup look, everyday routine and this is how it went!!! So far there’s no separating or caking or clumping of my concealer. It is a bit thickish and heavy, so I put it around my eyes, on the putter bone, so it moves naturally around the rest of my eye, so it doesn’t make my eyes feel heavy or cloudy. The product barely has a scent, which I like. But does have a slight earthy scent, which I also like. I can’t report on how efficient it works because this is only my second time using, but I thought that I would share how it’s incorporated in my skincare and makeup routine, and how well is meshes with the both. I’ll report back after a few weeks and tell you how it’s working! Thanks Cherie!!!! 😁 Xox 🤍
