My morning self care routine!
Good morning fellow Cheries! Or afternoon/night depending where you live! Here is my newly adjusted AM routine for my face. It was adjusted after a visit to a esthetician (see my last post) who recommended to me that I switch out my harsh Aveeno foaming cleanser with salicylic acid to something more gentle due to it drying my skin out. I got philosophy - Purity One-Step Facial Cleanserwhich I can’t yet rate because I’ve used it twice but so far it’s very refreshing and smells nice. I pay dry and move on to my next step THAYERS - Witch Hazel Astringent I love this toner because it clears up any dirt the cleanser may have missed, and doesn’t over dry my skin. Next I allow my toner to dry and use The Ordinary - Niacinamide 10% + Zinc 1% Which has been helping with redness and acne scarring. I haven’t seen them ease up in size but I have seen some scars ease up in redness. Lastly I use CLINIQUE - Moisture Surge 72-Hour Auto-Replenishing Hydrator This is the best moisturizer I’ve ever used. It leaves my skin plump feeling and full of moisture. This is my daily AM routine. If you have any questions or comments don’t be shy!@CheriePick

Vasanti For The Win
It seems like the whole world is currently obsessed with chemical exfoliants (AHA, BHA, PHA) and while they rightfully have a place in your skincare regime, I do love a classic scrub now and then. Most physical exfoliants have started getting a bad rep since they are said to cause micro tears in the skin and are overall very irritating. I was starting to give up on physical exfoliants until I came across VASANTI - Brighten Up! Exfoliator Wow. I absolutely love this product. This is the most gentle yet effective scrub I have ever used on my face. It's like a soft microdermabrasion treatment at home and it did not aggravate my skin. I have sensitive/reactive skin, so when a scrub doesn't cause inflammation it's a big deal However, if you are in the middle of an acne flare up or your barrier has been compromised, please do not use this or any other exfoliant. Focus on healing your skin and getting it healthy before using anything that could cause further harm. This product is infused with papaya and aloe vera, which is probably why I found it quite soothing. Even though it's slightly pricey ($34 CAD) I would definitely repurchase in the future.

Vitamin c for the soul!
#OLEHENRIKSEN - Truth Serum Mini[goods]#[FourStars] is marketed to brighten, firm, fights signs of aging, and all-day hydration! This serum is completed with a true c complex, collagen, aloe juice and orange and green tea extracts to brighten and revive complexion while nourishing and hydrating skin! The texture is so smooth and so easy to apply and the littlest bit goes a long way which is great!! My opinion: this has been in and out of my rotation and I am super glad that it is back in right now. I absolutely adore the way this applies onto my skin and makes my skin feel so good! It’s the perfect step in my morning routine and I can visibly see a shine right when I apply it. It honestly keeps my skin feeling plump and hydrated and firmer throughout the day! The first time around I didn’t notice a distinct difference in brightening of skin or loss of hyperpigmentation but I’m hoping this time around I’ll see real results if I stick to it! I have the mini size as you can see and because of how little you have to use I find it perfect! It’s cheaper 22 dollars to be exact and is perfect to bring with you everywhere!! I give this product a 4/5 because of the lack of long term results but everything else is pretty perfect. I would highly recommend to anyone who is looking to add a simple yet effective vitamin c to their routines. Stay tuned for a counter review on a vitamin c that I had no luck with!!
