December challenge PT 1
Sorry I'm catching up on this one, I posted it a few days ago and it disappeared 🙁 so I'm redoing it now 😁 Here's my fave products broken down:
Day 11 - SPF: I only have one face sunscreen, sun bum - Original 'Face 50' SPF 50 Sunscreen Lotion
Day 12 - moisturizer: it's a tie between Glossier. - Priming Moisturizer Rich Luxurious Face Cream
Day 13 & 14 - face oil and mask: to be honest, I don't have a favorite of either, since I don't really use face oils/never really looked into them, and most masks cause an allergic reaction or redness of some sort. Every mask I've used has bothered me by making me all red and causing some mild acne, but one hasn't done anything bad, and its the Glossier. - Moisturizing Moon Mask
Day 15 - eye product: I like my Glossier. - Bubblewrap Eye + Lip Plumping Cream
Why I love
Dec. 28, 2020
It’s it really worth it?????
This product was really cool, I mean it comes in a cool container and there was a lot of hype about it , so I gave it a shot. I think it works but not as well as other products that I have tested out. For eyes - it didn’t work for me as much as the GLOW RECIPE - Avocado Melt Retinol Eye Sleeping Mask which really worked well for me. But the bubble wrap could work for you For lips - it did plump like it said but it isn’t my favorite lip product that they do sell is Glossier. - Balm Dotcom it smells super good and it really helps Tell my your experience with the Glossier. - Bubblewrap Eye + Lip Plumping Cream

DRUNK ELEPHANT - Protini Polypeptide Cream Deluxe Sample again... not fungal acne safe but STILL didn’t cause me to have any breakouts!! the protini feels similar in terms of thickness and the over all feeling on the skin but it feels more “ wearable “ first aid beauty ————————— FIRST AID BEAUTY - Ultra Repair Oil-Control Moisturizer i was super excited to tey this out because the ingredients are fungal acne safe and the claims were ideal for my skin type but sadly i was disappointed 😞 it didn’t control my oil but rather left mw with this shine on my forehead! and it didn’t moisture my dry cheeks. epic fail FIRST AID BEAUTY - Hello FAB Coconut Water Cream this is a very basic fungal acne safe moisturizer i recommend to literally every one. i do like it and all but i find my skin still breaking out while i use this product. i would give it a 3 1/2 stars but i cant. CUROLOGY!!!! ———————— Curology - Curology formula Curology - Curology formula if you have fungal acne THIS is the treatment you NEED to try!!! my holy grail!! naturium ————— NATURIUM - Marine Hyaluronic Water Cream NATURIUM - Marine Hyaluronic Water Cream technically this moisturizer isn’t fungal acne safe because it contains polysorbate HOWEVER its one of the last ingredients listed so its not likely to have any affect. this is my FAVORITE MOISTURIZER!!! super affordable and feels luxurious and its amazing on my combo skin NATURIUM - Niacinamide Serum 12% Plus Zinc 2% my favorite fungal acne safe niacinamide serum!!! its affordable and it does exactly what it claims to do. literally cant get any better than this other lonely products ————————————- boscia - Green Tea Oil-Free Moisturizer this is a fungal acne safe moisturizer however its not very good at moisturizing or controlling oil 😕 but the packaging is cute i guess

Minimal Night Time Skincare
Here is my very minimal college student night time routine! I put these on every night after I wash my face and tone. I listed the products in the order i apply them(: ✨ Fourth Ray Beauty Rainfall - This is a 2% hyaluronic acid serum. It has a nice light cucumber scent and applies nicely and not sticky. I highly recommend this product as I have used it for over two years. I love how easy it is to apply and even use it whenever my face feels slightly dry. ✨ Laneige Lip Sleeping Mask - I use this lip sleeping mask every night and find it very nourishing. It helped my lips a lot especially now that it is colder. It has a lot of product so it is definitely worth the price. The only downside it that it is not easy to apply so it may not be as sanitary if you choose to take it outside of your house. ✨ Base Butter Radiate Face Jelly - I recently started to use this product. It is a gel moisturizer and plumps my skin. It also has a nice scent. However, the consistency is very strange for a gel moisturizer and has little white specks in the product. I may have had a bad batch that was not mixed well enough but will continue to use as it leaves my skin plump. ✨ Grande Lash Enhancing Serum - I LOOOVE THIS. Would rate over 5 stars if I could. It leaves my lashes suuuuper long and does not itch whatsoever. ✨ LilyAna Naturals Retinol Cream - I have been using this retinol for almost two years now. I am mainly using this product to target acne rather than anti-aging. It contains very little retinol which is great for everyday use. I mainly apply this to trouble areas but can be applied to the whole face. ✨ Kiehl’s Creamy Eye Treatment - I think it is a light consistency for an eye cream. It fits me very well as I am in my early 20s and do not need a very thick eye cream.
Absolutely loved the magic cream and elixir
I am very new to makeup, have dry skin prone to eczema. Used Charlotte Tilbury - Charlotte's Magic Serum Crystal Elixir and Charlotte Tilbury - Magic Cream Moisturizer as a base. Followed with Charlotte Tilbury - Airbrush Flawless Longwear Foundation I would love to get some help with my dark eyes and everything else that’s not done right. I use Kiehl's - Creamy Eye Treatment With Avocado which is great to hydrate but I’m not able to color correct and conceal well. I have tried tarte - Shape Tape Star Squad Conceal & Brighten Duo but what am I missing?
Updated Skincare Routine— Hydrated Glow!
Hi all! I’ve been super busy moving houses and so I haven’t been able to try very many new products lately, instead I’ve been sticking to my tried and true products and routine for the last few weeks. And honestly? My skin couldn’t be happier. It’s been smooth and hydrated with minimized breakouts, and no eczema patches. These are my top tips/products for hydrated and glowing complexion regardless of skin tone! ✨Dry Skin? Morning cleansing isn’t always necessary! I’ve been skipping my morning cleanse due to the dry weather where I’m living and my tightness and redness has been drastically reduced, along with my eczema! Instead I just wipe excess oil off with a cotton round and apply SPF as usual. Use a non stripping cleanser when you do wash, to avoid that tight feeling. ￼Glossier. - Milky Jelly Cleanser my absolute favorite, with hydrators in the formula it’s never stripping and I love it doesnt foam ￼CeraVe - Hydrating Cream-To-Foam Cleanser best drug store face wash by far! It’s always sold out, and a go-to for many with dry skin! ￼FIRST AID BEAUTY - Pure Skin Face Cleanser is my winter go to when my face is chapped ✨Don’t dry skin after cleansing. Wait until it’s damp and then apply your toner/serums. This will help lock extra moisture in along with increasing permeability of your products so they work more efficiently ✨Use an occclusive at night! This will lock in all of your products and keep the moisture from seeping out of your skin and into your pillow. ￼YOUTH TO THE PEOPLE - Superberry Hydrate + Glow Dream Mask has added antioxidants to wake up with an even and glowing complexion (and it’s my favorite scent ever) ￼CeraVe - Healing Ointment is coupled with ceramides to heal and strengthen skin and is perfect for those with dermatitis/raw red skin ￼Leven Rose - Jojoba Oil oils can also act as occlusives if you add an extra drop at night, and are a pure and natural way to introduce hydration and various vitamins and antioxidants ￼Glossier. - Moisturizing Moon Mask i also love repurposing hydrating masks as sleeping masks! This one from glossier is divine and stays on all night. ✨Cotton pillow cases are some of the most drying materials because they’re really absorbant (think about coton rounds!). Something like silk is less rough on skin, not only because of the softer fibers and higher thread count, but it absorbs less moisture than cotton, so your skin stays more hydrated. For those who suffer from dry skin or who live in dry climates, that bit of extra overnight hydration can mean waking up with a less tight, dry face (and less wrinkles!) ￼slip - Pillowcase White King Zippered King (51 x 91cm/ 20" x 36") / Invisible Zipper these pillow cases from slip are tried and true, everyone in the beauty community swears by them as do I.
Glossier: One Timers + Future Empties!
We all know a lot about Glossier’s powerhouse makeup products, such as their Boy Brow and Cloudpaint- but on Cherie, I don’t see a huge discussion around their skincare. After testing out Glossier’s skincare products over a month and a half, I have a lot of thoughts! Glossier. - Milky Oil Waterproof Makeup Remover this is a glorified micellar water, but unfortunately way less effective. For their price point, you’d expect it to remove waterproof mascara easily. Glossier. - Super Pure Niacinamide + Zinc Serum this guy is pretty good. I’m finding that I’m personally needing a more hydrating niacinamide product in my routine than this, which is why I give it four stars! Otherwise, if you have normal skin and simply want to maintain with a thinner, more watery consistency that’s pretty straightforward and you’re willing to spend a bit more than for the Ordinary/ Inkey List, definitely consider this. I’m giving THE inkey LIST - Niacinamide Oil Control Seruma try, and I’ll report back! Glossier. - Mega Greens Galaxy Pack Detoxifying Face Mask pleasantly surprised! I’d use this 2-3 times a week and it made my skin feel gently unclogged. I came off of a bad reaction to previous products but still wanted to gently exfoliate/ detoxify my skin, and this delivered. Sensitive skin folks- this could be great for you. Oily skin/ normal? If you want stronger results, seek elsewhere! Glossier. - Moisturizing Moon Mask when I used this, I’d pretty much leave this baby on for at least 20 mins, let my skin soak up as much of this as possible, and gently whipe away excess with a reusable pad, then basically go to sleep. I’d wake up in the morning with soft, supple skin- I haven’t gotten little pimples or anything either. On dry days with my primarily dry skin, this was great. Definitely repurchasing and definitely using this more often in the winter time! Glossier. - Zit Stick Breakout Eraser due to the stress of a new job/ new workout routine/ new sleep schedule in one week, my face was like “what the ****?!” And I got three planets on my chin at the beginning of the 1 1/2 month product line test. Within less than a week, these big boys subsided quicker than usual. Glossier. - Solution Exfoliating Skin Perfector I’ve been wanting to use something like this for the occasional blemishes and to clear out nose blackheads for my AM routine. Solid addition! I realized I need to recognize that with salicylic acid in it to go easy on my skin and strategize throughout the week on minimizing how often I use it. Using it twice a week had been my sweet spot personally! Seeking specific anti-aging treatments? Maybe not for you. These are all great products for someone: -younger -starting out in skincare -someone who needs to rotate gentler products into their routine Hope this was helpful✨🙌🏼
🌟My Skincare Journey: Adult Acne ❕❕💫
Pimples don’t stop at puberty. And I learned the hard way 😭. I was lucky to not have had a lot of breakouts in my teens. But it hit me when I turned 20 (2 years ago!). All the insecurities I thought I confronted when I was in high school, all came flooding back. 😳 🌱2018: Painful Acne🌱(2nd slide, left pic) I don’t have many photos of myself from 2018 because I was so insecure about my skin. I would pick at it and avoid mirrors at all costs. And at times it even hurt to touch my face. The pic shown, was me on a VERY good skin day and one of the only photos I have of myself without makeup in 2018. 🌞What I wish I knew: ￼￼just because my skin is having trouble, DOES NOT equal needing more products! it’s all about using the right ones. ￼￼STOP over-exfoliating! ESPECIALLY with harsh acids everyday. ￼￼try not to pick! (Easier said than done) ￼￼your worth is not defined by your skin! (ALSO easier said than done) ￼￼SUNSCREEN!!!!! 🌱2019:Scarring🌱(2nd slide, pics on the right) Finally seeing results in my skin! But I wasn’t prepared for the scarring and texture. What made it even more obvious was the makeup I was using. It also dried out my skin (which was already flaky w/ dry patches & oily at the same time😭). My skin also seemed dull and tired—which was probably to do with the anxious over-cleansing. I was terrified my acne would come back! 🌞What I wish I knew: ￼￼treat your makeup like your skincare. ingredients are so important! ￼￼don’t cleanse in the AM like you do in the PM. you’re stripping your skin and increasing the overproduction of oil=oily, flaky, dry MADNESS 🥴 ￼￼be kind to yourself! you’re seeing results 💓 🌱2020: Feeling better, still learning I’ve FINALLY found a routine that’s helped me. And I am no longer afraid of the mirror. And TBH I never should’ve been! Confidence comes with time and while no one wAnTs acne, it is normal and we should de-stigmatize acne. We shouldn’t treat ourselves (or let others) poorly because of it. (‼️SIDE NOTE: if you are having serious, painful, etc. acne, see a dermatologist or a professional‼️) PRODUCTS USED: (they do change occasionally but these are staples!) AM: Toner: ☁️ (depending on my skin) DICKINSON'S - Original Witch Hazel Pore Perfecting Toner Moisturizer:☁️ CeraVe - Daily Moisturizing Lotion For Normal To Dry Skin Sunscreen:☁️ sun bum - Original 'Face 50' SPF 50 Sunscreen Lotion Or #beauty counter - Mineral Sunscreen Lotion SPF 30[products]#[FiveStars] PM: Cleanser: ☁️ CAUDALIE - Vinopure Pore Purifying Gel Cleanser Or CLARISMA - Malibu Blush Exfoliating Scrub Serum: ☁️ The Ordinary - Niacinamide 10% + Zinc 1% Moisturizer:☁️ CeraVe - Moisturizing Cream For Normal To Dry Skin Spot: ☁️ LA ROCHE-POSAY - Effaclar Duo (+) (occasionally!) Masks: ☁️(occasional) CAUDALIE - Purifying Mask CLARISMA - Namaste Glow Energizing Face Mask
Teen Acne Help!
I have been struggling with acne for around 2 years now and in the past 1.5 months i upped my skincare to what i currently have! I use the app skincare to organize and simplify my routine to make sure everything isn’t conflicting when i use it. Cleansers: CeraVe - Renewing SA Cleanser For Normal Skin I use this 1-4 times a week at night or in the morning during a breakout, making sure to not use the PAULA'S CHOICE - Skin Perfecting 2% BHA Liquid Exfoliator with it. In the mornings i mostly cleanse with water and will use another cleanser occasionally during a bad breakout. CeraVe - Foaming Facial Cleanser For Normal To Oily Skin I recently bought this cleanser for a more gentle cleanse without as many direct acids as my SA one. I don’t currently have it where i am but i will use it mostly at night and a few times in the morning. Neutrogena - Fresh Foaming Cleanser I also bought this one recently for a gentle cleanse for where i currently am (divorced parents) and i use it at night and in the mornings every once in awhile. Exfoliaters: The Ordinary - AHA 30% + BHA 2% Peeling Solution I use this every 1.5 weeks on my tzone and cheeks for 10 minutes. PAULA'S CHOICE - Skin Perfecting 2% BHA Liquid Exfoliator I will use this in the mornings without a cleanser on all of my face concentrating on my forehead. Serums: The main serum i use about once a day is the The Ordinary - Niacinamide 10% + Zinc 1% because it doesn’t directly conflict with most of my products. i do not use the NATURIUM - Niacinamide Serum 12% Plus Zinc 2% at the same time as this. I will occasionally use the íUNIK - Tea Tree Relief Serum also. I recently bought the CeraVe - Skin Renewing Retinol Cream Serumbut have only used it once without anything else. Moisturizer: The Ordinary - Natural Moisturizing Factors + HA I love this moisturizer bc it makes my skin feel amazing! I use it everyday and apply a pea sized amount as directed by the ordinary & deciem. Sunscreen: I ALWAYS apply sunscreen after everything i do on my skin, never skipping it. sun bum - Original 'Face 50' SPF 50 Sunscreen Lotion this is my current favorite sunscreen that i use everyday. it doesn’t make me breakout as far as i know. i also have this sunscreen though i rarely use it BLUE LIZARD AUSTRALIAN SUNSCREEN - Sensitive Mineral Sunscreen SPF 30+ Those are my current products that are in circulation. my average routine is morning wash with water and apply niacinimide by the ordinary and moisturizer and sunscreen. I will use a cleanser at night with the same serum or a different one and my mousturizer and sunscreen!!! please list any tips below for clearing my acne!
Current Products I'm Using
I have oil/combo skin and been struggling with hormonal acne for a few years now which is mainly around my chin. I have noticed some positive changes but also some negative ones, for example I have more blackheads in areas besides my nose which I never had before. Here are the products I've been using lately. AM Routine I don't cleanse in the morning just splash water on my face and pat dry, then I apply PAULA'S CHOICE - Resist C15 Super Booster after I apply moisturizer e.l.f. - Holy Hydration! Face Cream - Fragrance Free then sunscreen Supergoop! - Play Everyday Lotion SPF 50 With Sunflower Extract PM Routine During the day I don't wear much makeup just some mascara so I just use GARNIER - SkinActive Micellar Cleansing Water with Rose Water for my first cleanse, then I go in with PAULA'S CHOICE - Pore Normalizing Cleanser which I am just about out of so I will be using CeraVe - Salicylic Acid Facial Cleanserwhich I haven't tried before but decided to buy it because of all the hype! Than I apply my toner and depending on my skin at the time I will either use PAULA'S CHOICE - Pore-Reducing Toner or I'm from - Rice Toner I have just recently purchased and starting using The Ordinary - Niacinamide 10% + Zinc 1% then I moisturizer with THE inkey LIST - Peptide Moisturizer I use PAULA'S CHOICE - Skin Perfecting 2% BHA Liquid Exfoliator twice a weeks and PAULA'S CHOICE - 1% Retinol Treatment with Peptides + Vitamin C 3 times a week. My skin is still breaking out so I'm gonna try eliminating certain products to see if I can pin point what is causing the breakouts and blackheads. I recently purchased a cleansing brush and I'm gonna start by eliminating the Paulas choice BHA Exfoliator and start using the brush 2 or 3 times a week instead. If that's not the problem then I'm gonna try taking out the Vitamin C. If anyone has any advice or tips I am all ears!!!
I just finished theSupergoop! - Play Everyday Lotion SPF 50 With Sunflower Extract Here’s why I’m giving it a 3/5 stars. Texture: slightly oily but blends well and has no white cast Smell: sunflower essential oil smell. Kinda like tea tree. My skin type: oily and acne prone When I use it: daily or twice a day. I apply it on as part of my morning skincare routine. I wanted to give this product a 5/5 when I first got it but after using it for a while, I started to notice that this product was not good for my skin type. It did not make me break out at all which is a very good thing because my skin is acne prone. Pro: Right when I apply it in the morning, it made me face look dewy and fresh but.. Con: it does leave and build up a heavy oily layer on my face throughout the day which did not feel good on my face. Between reapplying every 2 hours, that layer made me look really oily. Pros: I really liked the smell because I very dislike the smell of regular spf sunscreens so much. This spf was the first that I’ve used that doesn’t smell like regular ones. The smell of this product was pleasant and not overwhelming. Does this product do the job? In my opinion, I think this spf does a great job in protecting my skin because I could see my acne scars and dark spots fading away. I did not get sunburns on my face as I usually would if I’m in the sun without spf. Overall, if you have oily skin, I would not recommend it. However, if you like an spf that doesn’t smell like regular spf and love a dewy look then I would recommend it. It pairs really well with Supergoop! - 100% Mineral Invincible Setting Powder SPF 45 I use the shade medium. It leaves a matte finish which is great for my oily T-zone. MAKE SURE TO WEAR SUNSCREEN EVERYDAY!!! Because what’s the point of doing your skincare routine if you’re not going to protect your skin :) sn

Current night routine 🌙
I wanted to share my current night routine for my skin, starting with when I shower, because it's really been working for me: 1. In the shower, I use a half pump of YOUTH TO THE PEOPLE - Superfood Antioxidant Cleanser to tighten pores, get rid of any gunk on my face, and to brighten. 2. After I'm done showering, my blood pressure tends to go up because of circulation improving, so I get in my pajamas and apply Glossier. - Super Pure Niacinamide + Zinc Serum to calm any redness. Then I brush my teeth. 3. Next, I spray a little bit of Avène - Thermal Spring Water Spray all over and roll my face using my SEPHORA COLLECTION - Rose Quartz Facial Roller 4. I roll my face using the wide end, starting with my left cheekbone and go to the jawline while going in lines/diagonals on my cheeks. Then I do my forehead by going horizontally - the top first and moving down, focusing on my brow bones (bc of sinuses, same with cheekbones and undereyes), next is the right cheek same as the left, then chin, sides of nose & undereyes w/ small end, and I finish by going in lines like a fern - but the branches/stems, not the little leaves. starting in one spot, going out, and coming back but going to different spots each time until I get that area covered - I make 5 lines on both cheeks and forehead using this method. It's difficult to describe tbh - center between my eyes / middle of brow, for cheeks its by my ear opening) 5. After my face is all cooled off, I put on a dime-sized amount of either Kiehl's - Ultra Facial Cream or Glossier. - Priming Moisturizer Rich Luxurious Face Cream and lather it all over onto my face and neck. 6. Don't forget your lips! I use either my birthday, coconut, or my recent fave - the fig Glossier. - Balm Dotcom 7. The last step is to spray some more of my Avène - Thermal Spring Water Spray but I also have two other sprays - YOUTH TO THE PEOPLE - Adaptogen Soothe + Hydrate Activated Mist with Reishi + Ashwagandhaand TATCHA - Luminous Dewy Skin Mist Thx for reading ! 😊
Full Glossier Look
I proclaim myself a Glossier ambassador because it’s the only brand I use for makeup looks other than my new Kat Von D lip liner and my trusty L’Oreal Paris Infallible Eyeliner. I made this a Reel on my Instagram if you want to check it out, but these are the products I used✨ (I have acne and none of these products have exacerbated it, thank goodness. I don’t use their foundation anymore because my skin doesn’t agree with anything foundation lol). Glossier. - Glossier. Lip Gloss It’s not my favorite lipgloss because it’s too thick and sticky, but I like the shine it gives especially when I want a glow. Glossier. - Futuredew Oil Serum Hybrid I bought this serum a couple months ago and I’m not mad at it. It gives a subtle glow unlike my Becca Cosmetics compact, but it does the job. I apply it with my hands and in a few minutes I’m all set...to sit at home and work from my bed lol. Glossier. - Cloud Paint Duo I used the shade “Storm” and I like that it’s a deeper tone. It shows up on my skin tone and gives me a slight flushed look which is what a good blush should do, in my opinion. I’ve used it a little on my lips too just for a pop of color and right now this is my favorite product from Glossier Glossier. - Priming Moisturizer Rich Luxurious Face Cream I’ll always give this moisturizer love. It gets rid of my dry flaky skin and because it’s thick it keeps my skin hydrated for quite some time.
Supergoop Trial Set = Some Loves, and Some Nots
Supergoop! - The Jet Set SPF Kit Overall, this kit is a good price to try some cult favorites from this brand. I would buy 2/3 products full size, but I will get into the specifics down below. Supergoop! - Unseen Sunscreen Broad Spectrum SPF 40 MY FAVORITE OUT OF THIS SET! Makes my skin so unbelievably soft, matte, and of course protected! I have no choice but to purchase the full size. My skin is super sensitive, and this is perfect for summer to keep in my bag. I don’t see how anyone could give this less than 5 stars. My face gets so oily sitting in the sun, and this is the best product to keep around to prevent sun damage while not clogging my pores! Supergoop! - Play Everyday Lotion SPF 30 with Sunflower Extract To be completely honest, I could do without this product. I was not wowed, and there wasn’t much that I liked about it. I’m glad I got to try it, because I was intrigued by the SPF 50, but I just didn’t like this product for me. Supergoop! - Defense Refresh (Re)setting Mist SPF 40 I LOVE the concept of this product. It is such a great thing to have around if you don’t want to keep globing on sunscreen throughout the day. And I definitely think it works! I think I would repurchase, because it adds to the value of the Unseen Sunscreen, making sure I don’t waste any product! If you’re interested in getting into this brand, I think this travel kit is a good way to see what works for you!

Current morning & night routine ☀️🌙
Hey beauties! I wanted to share my current skin routine for morning & night, since I've updated it with some new products that I'm enjoying and it's been working for me. Hope it works for you too! :) ☀️Morning: 1. I typically don't wash my face since all I did was sleep and I do this routine pretty soon after I wake up. So the first step is really to use almost a whole pump of OLE HENRIKSEN - Banana Bright Vitamin C Serum on my whole face 2. Then I use about a dime sized amount of myKiehl's - Ultra Facial Cream 3. Glossier. - Balm Dotcom goes on my lips - I prefer either fig, birthday, berry or coconut 4. Volia! That's easy :) 🌙Evening: 1. Cleanse my face in the shower using a half pump of YOUTH TO THE PEOPLE - Superfood Antioxidant Cleanser 2. After my shower, I sometimes use my facial roller (it's SEPHORA COLLECTION - Rose Quartz Facial Rollerand Idk what to rate it as since it's the only one I have) 3. Next is the serum - depending on what's the issue; if it's acne:Glossier. - Solution Exfoliating Skin Perfector, redness and/or irritation: Glossier. - Super Pure Niacinamide + Zinc Serum, or just feels ok / needs a little something to smooth out or be more hydrated: TATCHA - The Dewy Serum Resurfacing and Plumping Treatment 4. If I want to use an eye cream, I go with the Ole Henriksen banana bright eye creme from this set: OLE HENRIKSEN - Let's Get Luminous Brightening Essentials Set it's a half size one and the set is only $40 5. Glossier. - Balm Dotcom again because it's hydrating enough for me (yes my lips do get dry since they're a little chapped when I wake up, but I don't think I necessarily need a lip mask) 6. Of course, the last step is a facial spray, and it's always my Avène - Thermal Spring Water Spraybc I can't live without it. In case you're curious, the total price for my routine is $363!! (that includes all the products I mentioned) 🤯

I used the skin ceuticals Vitamin C holy grail
6 months after I started to take better care of my skin. Here’s some pics non filtered of my routine. 1. I purchased the SKINCEUTICALS - C E Ferulic With 15% L-Ascorbic Acid Vitamin C Serum the most recommended from dermatologist and was definitely not sure whether to purchase or no because of its price. Thank god I did 🙏 this is really the holy grail. 2. The OLE HENRIKSEN - Banana Bright Eye Crème this eye cream was gifted to me by cousin over a year ago. I love it. It’s absolutely amazing. 3. Last but no least thanks to Cherie for gifting me absolutely the best eye cream ever used Supergoop! - Unseen Sunscreen Broad Spectrum SPF 40 Highly recommend these products. The most important is being consistent and using them every morning. 😘
❄️ Winter Skin Care Tips
Winter is a tuff time on our skin. I suffer from roseca, eczema and in winter months my skin tends to be super dry. Here are some tips that I use to keep my skin hydrated and healthy during these months. Winter Skin Care Tips~ ￼Sunscreen- Even though it’s not summer you still need sunscreen to protect your skin from harmful uv rays. If your looking for a good sunscreen I recommend Supergoop! - Unseen Sunscreen Broad Spectrum SPF 40 ￼ ￼ Humidifier~ The rising thermostat indoors causes dry air that sucks the moisture right out of your body. My. dermatologist recommended that I Use A humidifier in my bedroom in, to help keep my skin hydrated. I keep my humidifier on my bed side table aimed towards my face as I sleep. It has really help keep my skin hydrated all year long especially in the cold months. 🚨 Tip~ If you get a humidifier get one that you can add scent pads too. You can get vics vapor rub scent pads that help with your sinus or essential oil pads. You can get a Humidifier can Off amazon starting. at $19.99 ￼Drink Up~ We tend to loose moisture more often during the winter months. In the summer I’m super active and I drink on a minimum of 4-5 bottles of water. In the winter months I’m just not as thirsty and find I find my myself drinking less. I use crystal light lemonade packs in my water. ￼Limit Shower Time~ It may be tempting to take a long, steamy shower, but your skin will be much better served with a 5- to 10-minute lukewarm shower (or bath), as the AAD suggests. Hot water dries out your skin by stripping it of its natural oils. Blot your skin dry and apply a thick moisturizer within a few minutes after bathing to seal the water into the skin. This is the one Tip that is hard for me to follow. I Love a hot shower after being out in the cold. ￼Dress Smart~ when heading outside, Make sure you bundle up and Protect your skin from the elements by wearing gear like scarfs, hats and gloves. Avoid materials that might irritate the skin. If you feel itchy under your favorite wool sweater wear a thin, breathable shirt underneath, or switch to a different material like fleece. ￼Modify Your Skin Care Rountine~The key to having healthy and glowing winter skin is using mild skin care products. Choose cleansers that contain moisturizers to avoid stripping your skin of its natural moisture barrier. I use a cream-based cleansers, and apply toners and astringents sparingly during the winter, if at all. Many astringents contain alcohol, which can further dry your skin. When your skin is dry and itchy, the AAD recommends you stop using products that contain alcohol and fragrances in order to help skin retain its natural oils. At night, use a richer moisturizer on your face. Supergoop! - Unseen Sunscreen Broad Spectrum SPF 40
Best drugstore sunscreen ☀️
It makes me really happy to see people recognize sunscreen as an important part of a skincare routine. To the point where we have a hard time keeping certain ones on the shelves. One of those just happens to be one of my favorites, the CeraVe - Face Sheer Tint Hydrating Sunscreen SPF 30 . This mineral sunscreen (5.5% Titanium Dioxide, 10% Zinc Oxide) can be found at most drugstore retailers and costs $15.99 for 1.7 oz of product (keep an eye on your local Ulta, CeraVe goes on sale all the time). It contains ceramides (great for dry skin!) and niacinamide (helps even out pigmentation and reduce redness). It has an SPF of 30 and has what they call, and I don’t exactly agree with, a universal tint so no typical white caste. So for the most part I LOVE this sunscreen. Despite it being a hydrating sunscreen it still sits very well on my oily skin. It rubs in like a cream moisturizer and doesn’t feel like your typical, gross feeling sunscreen. It does give your skin a little bit of a glow which I think looks stunning underneath make up. I usually stick with matte foundations so it just gives it a little bit of a boost so I don’t look too matte. The only reason I give it four stars is the tint. They say it’s a universal tint but it’s too dark for me. It’s like a shade too dark on me so I don’t reach for it often unless I completely take everything down my neck. I wish CeraVe would branch out and create both lighter and darker versions of this sunscreen to accommodate all skin tones. I say it works best on medium tan skin. My best friend self tans and it looks gorgeous on her as a foundation. There will be days she just applies this and it looks like a sheer foundation on her. It’s odd but when you apply it it almost blurs your skin a little bit and evens everything out. There are days when I do use it that I’ll use it in place of my primer as it creates an even toned base for foundation. It’s very hydrating and leaves your skin feeling really soft and not heavy. If you have dry to normal skin I think you’ll really enjoy this! Those with oily skin, you might like this. I did personally but I fee like with oily skin things can be hit or miss person to person. #CheriePartner

Inn beauty project ✨
This skincare brand is so underrated. I was a bit hesitant about purchasing this but I’ve heard great reviews. I finally decided to get this and wow I should’ve gotten this a while ago. I’ve used all these for about a week now it’s been really gentle and moisturizing on my skin. Foam around clarifying daily cleanser: this surprised me. It has no scent whatsoever! The foam is really fluffy and feels like a cloud on your face. It’s super gentle, and because it’s doesn’t feel like a typical cleanser I thought it wasn’t working. The foam basically dissolves on your skin and doesn’t strip out my oil. It doesn’t dry out my skin and feels great on my oily and dry areas. iNNBEAUTY PROJECT - Foam Around Clarifying Daily Cleanser Next level no bs moisturizer: the packaging is great, all I have to do is squeeze it out and not worry about putting my fingers in the moisturizer. It has a slight thickness to it that feels amazing. It has a slight oat scent to me. It doesn’t leave my face oily and sticky. This has been one of my favorites and is in my top 5 fave moisturizers. It feels like a basic moisturizer and that’s what we really need sometimes. iNNBEAUTY PROJECT - Next Level Daily Moisturizer Power up dual phase setting mist: it feels nice on the skin. I use this before and after makeup. It feels like your typical refreshing and cooling mist. No complains here. iNNBEAUTY PROJECT - Power Up Dual-Phase Face Mist Glaze #1 lip oil: I love this lip oil. It smells and tastes like an apple 🍎. It gives my lips a little bit of a tint and feels amazing. I love that this gives my lip a slight plumping effect. The applicator is really nice and something I don’t see often. It’s kinda big in a good way, it helps apply the right amount of lip oil and feels extremely soft. iNNBEAUTY PROJECT - Glaze #1 lip oil Electrifying lightning bolt eye mask: I got a set of 4 and these are super cute. They feel nice on the skin. If my eyes are a bit puffy or dull I put them in the fridge. They feel refreshing. iNNBEAUTY PROJECT - Electrify Lightening Bolt Eye Mask

Minis that hooked me after 1 use!
These are all products I’ve been wanting to try for some time and I am so glad I got the chance to try the mini sizes first! Both the LANEIGE - Water Bank Moisture Cream and YOUTH TO THE PEOPLE - Superfood Antioxidant Cleanser came in a $10 Sephora favorites kit so you know I had to buy it. The water cream is so soothing and smells incredible. The cleanser literally is a green juice for your face and it didn’t strip my skin at all! It was a really light wash and I love the recyclable packaging. The Supergoop! - Defense Refresh (Re)setting Mist SPF 40 I bought mini for $14 at Sephora as I was looking for an easy way to re-apply sunscreen this summer when I’m wearing makeup. It does have chemical actives which I know not everyone likes, and it also has the smell of a spray sunscreen but it didn’t bother me at all. Compared to other mists with SPF I’ve tried, it didn’t sting my skin or eyes at all, but know that this might not be the case if you have sensitive skin! Also always gotta feature one of my favorite books, this time it’s poetry by the incredible Rupi Kaur :)

Supergoop, Is It Really So Super?
Supergoop! - Unseen Sunscreen Broad Spectrum SPF 40 To begin with, this product was so hard to find in stock anywhere!! I ended up finding it on some random website on page 52672 of my google searches and bought an SPF 30 version of the product. As for the unseen claim of this product (that this sunscreen is visually unseen on the skin) , it is completely true. It is perfectly clear and you can hardly tell it is on the skin when applied. Neither colour, nor texture of the sunscreen is visible. Looks as a moisturizer would when applied. It is also thick and sticky, yet super lightweight on the skin, so a perfect primer for makeup if you don’t wish to use an additional primer on top. It does have a smell to it which I had read about previously, but it is not as strong or disturbing as i’d read. There is a pungent smell when you first squeeze out the product, but then the smell immediately dissipates. With each application, I use about 4-5 times the amount squeezed onto my hand in the second picture. This is not too much, but in comparison to the size of the bottle, it is an uncomfortable amount. In terms of sunscreen, this product is amazing and I have no complaints. It is even water resistant, which eases my nerves for when I sweat or happen to face some splashes of water on my face. However, I do not like how small the bottles are for how much I use and how much it actually costs (spent about $30 CAD). For that reason only, I give it 4 stars instead of 5. But if the price is not an issue for you, this is an amazing sunscreen! Either 30 SPF or 40 SPF are both great for protection against the sun and work well as a mineral sunscreen that blends into your normal skin care or makeup routine without much disruption. ☀️☀️☀️ I would like to ask if anyone has suggestions for a mineral sunscreen that works just as well but isn’t as pricy! Thank you!!
