I was excited about this product. Why? I’m not sure maybe because I thought the jar was pretty. Which it is. I’m a sucker for gold things. ANYWAYS Okay my first impression was, “why is it pink?” Do I see red and yellow dye? Why yes I do. Which is a big no! Then... what is that I smell? Could it be fragrance? Why yes it is. Then it was extremely oily/greasy feeling on my skin and it didn’t want to soak in. So even though it says that it has 30 SPF I was in nooo way using anywhere near enough to get close to that. There are some really good ingredients in here, but they are swimming around in there with ones that I’d rather just not have on my face. For $80 and an award winning product I WANT MORE! I WANT BETTER! It’s okay to want that. To me there are better products out there. It wasn’t terrible, but the feel, the texture, the smell was just not for me.

Product claims VS My thoughts
the GLOW!!! ✨✨✨
GLAMGLOW - Barbie x Limited Edition Glowstarter Mega-Illuminating Moisturizer First off, I’ve used this product in the shade “nude glow” and LOVED how it looked on my skin alone or under makeup. This Barbie edition came out (same price as original so you’re not just paying for the name) in a beautiful pink so I had to grab it. If you don’t like a thick cream feeling on your face then this is NOT for you. I have combo skin, and this glow moisturizer works wonders on my cheeks no matter the season! In the winter it keeps the moisture locked in my cheeks and in the summer it continues to make me glow. I personally love using it on my “no-makeup makeup” days where I just use concealer on any spots and this moisturizer on my cheeks with a little bit of powder in the t zone. I find this is the most flattering way to wear it and really show off the shine, but it is still very beautiful under foundation - you lose some of the glow but you keep the moisture. Absolutely looooove this moisturizer and find it very underrated. SIDE NOTE: I don’t use this on my t zone at all because I’m oily, so I really keep it to my cheeks or else it is too glossy.

If you want a lip balm that actually heals your lips, this is your guy. The hydration and protection last for hours. Even after eating and drinking my lips feel great. Get you a lip balm that actually does some good for your lips instead have just covering it up. This is a balm you can actually use anywhere on your body including your hands, hair, and feet. It moisturizes without a greasy feeling. I have eczema all over more body and it does help with dry patches. There website claims it can also be used to heal wounds and prevent scarring. It has amazing ingredients including aloe Vera and olive oil. I love that this branch is environmentally sustainable, vegan, and cruelty free. They use recycled packaging and ethical source there materials. I brought mine at TJ Maxx for $5.99 but you can also find it at Ulta for $8. Dr. PAWPAW - Original Multipurpose Balm

NOT WORTH THE HYPE
✨your follows and cheers mean so much 💛✨ I’m so confused by this product, I recently purchased it and as you can see from the photo there are no sunscreen claims on the bottle. Which is confusing because on the Sephora website it said it is SPF 15 but I’ve seen other bottles with the SPF claim on it. I was also under the impression that FDA requires you to list it on the bottle ??? No where on the bottle or box does it say it’s SPF. It has zinc oxide in the ingredients, but doesn’t list its effectiveness ? Maybe I’m missing something ? I was really hoping to find a great moisturizer with broad spectrum SPF, this is something that is missing in my routine and would love recommendations if you have any. Here’s my review on the #Algenist - Alive prebiotic balancing moisturizer[products]#[TwoStars] 💪🏼 |PERFORMANCE| Meh, left skin feeling greasy and shiny. Didn’t find it ‘hydrating’ or ‘balancing’ 🤲🏻 |TEXTURE| for a moisturizer I was shocked how close the consistency to regular sunscreen it was. This moisturizer when on thick and white and took FOREVER to soak in and even when it did my skin just looks SO oily for the rest of the night. 👃🏻|SCENT| the products was unscented 💦 |INGREDIENTS| this product is free of sulfates SLS and SLES, parabens, formaldehydes, formaldehyde-releasing agents, phthalates, retinyl palmitate, oxybenzone, coal tar, hydroquinone, triclosan, and triclocarban. And is also Vegan. Contains algae prebiotic which helps re balance the skins natural ecosystem (prebiotics are the food probiotics thrive on to be more effective) 💸 |VALUE| this bottle was $53 for 50ml. Which is a total pass for me, way to much money for something that doesn’t deliver. I’m all for paying the price for good sunscreen/ moisturizers but this was not one of them. Womp womp.
Healing hand eczema with Codex
Have you guys heard of this clean brand Codex? It’s a seriously amazing brand, they’ve set a new standard on sustainable beauty and clean formulas! I just heard of them and they gifted me a few items that I’m actually falling in love with! Y’all know I keep it real if it isn’t good I’m not with it.... But they have this skinfood cream for face body and hands to treat irritated skin, and damn it has done my hand eczema wonders. Since we’ve been washing our hands like crazy (and dishes) my eczema decided to make an appearance. It’s been tough and I’ve been putting aloe Vera on it, but after two days of Codex’s super skinfood omg. It healed my hands sooo much. In this video you can see my hand eczema dried up, but if you swipe right you’ll see how inflamed it was just two days ago. This cream helped the most with itching because it has calendula. And not itching means less inflammation! I’ll do a post about the brand altogether because I am super impressed!

I confess I started putting on my hands after washing them throughout the day to keep moisturized because I HATE dry hands. They creep me out when my hands get dry and I touch things. Am I the only one? 😂 I also really enjoy the mild floral scent although if you are scent sensitive, you may not like. For me, also knowing it is paraben and phthalate free is a huge selling point.
New CLEAN BEAUTY!
#Cherieconversations I am trying out this product from the plant base! It is a no water formula so it’s all plant base it is also oil free without stickiness! I really like the gel texture this moisturizer has and it goes into your skin very quickly! The only thing I don’t like about this is the smell of the product, because it is plant base it actually smells like veggies, but if it didn’t have the scent I think I really like it. The scent goes away after you apply it so only smells like that initial application so that’s nice!
