I got two boxes from Cherie during their Cheires pick’s program and was thrilled with the products! inside: -Supergoop! - Unseen Sunscreen Broad Spectrum SPF 40 -OLEHENRIKSEN - Truth Juice Daily Cleanser-HERBIVORE - Prism 20% AHA + 5% BHA Exfoliating Glow Facial -Ouai - Chill Pills im still doing individual reviews for each!
the essential eye tool
the product: URBAN DECAY - Essential Eye Tool the rating: 5/5, super effective and priced well the review: my last tool broke, and i ran into sephora and ran out with this. its now a staple in my makeup kit for separating lashes after mascara. the little point comb makes fanning out lashes easy and eliminates any clumps. the spoolie is strong and effective at combing out my brows. and all three are combined into one handy utility the price: $15. for 3 things. perfect!

the violet one lash primer
the product: MILANI - The Violet One Lash Primer the rating: 5/5, i absolutely love it the review: i received this product from bzzagent as a tester and i absolutely love it. it replaced my old lancome definis cils primer because of its brush. the application is easy and the lengthening effect is instant and beautiful. there are no clumps at all. the violet color is supposed to make the black pigment pop, but mostly makes it easy to see where you applied it the price: $10. totally worth it

a bit overhyped
the product: HERBIVORE - Prism 20% AHA + 5% BHA Exfoliating Glow Facial the rating: 3/5 overall, 2/5 price, 4/5 effectiveness the ingredients: 20% fruit derived AHAs and 5% willow bark BHAs. alpha hydroxy acids exfoliate the surface layer of skin for additional glow, beta hydroxy acid dissolves oil and clears pores the review: i was lucky enough to get this from cherie and believe you me, this is a beautiful product. absolutely gorgeous. i know ill keep the jar forever, and the mask itself is a beautiful iridescent gel. the product itself is fairly effective, a little tingle on the face and smooth skin in the morning. it has the right ingredients and it pretty suitable for sensitive skin. heck, i even used it on my boyfriend. heres the caveat: its $58. the ordinary makes a similar mask that is 30% aha/5% bha for $8. So, if you wanna ball out and show off, go for this! if you have a budget and also want a VERY effective product, use the dupe. the price: $58. whoooeee

BITE-Power Move Creamy Matte Lip Crayon
the product: Dr. Jart+ - Dermaclear Micro Water the rating: 4/5, effective water but its water; why is it so expensive the ingredients: hydrogen bio water, sea salt, coconut water the review: its a very effective cleansing micellar water, but it is after all, just water. it took off my makeup fairly easily, except for my waterproof mascara. its nice, but there are 1000 cheaper alternatives the price: $32 for 8.45 oz

KEY INGREDIENTS: ONEKIND REFINING FACIAL
onekind - Pore-fectionist Refining Facial K E Y I N G R E D I E N T S . Pink Kaolin & Bentonite Clay: These soft clays gently detoxify congested skin and pores without irritation or dryness. This works well for all skin types because it’s a mild clay and is beneficial for people with dry and sensitive skin too. Salicylic Acid (Willow Bark) & Lactic Acid: It is a type of Beta Hydroxy Acid derived from Willow Bark. It is able to penetrate the pores of the skin to help exfoliate and unclog the pores. This ingredient works for all skin types. Barley Seed Extract: It helps to reduce redness and irritation on the skin. It’s a calming ingredient that soothes skin. And it works for all skin types. This is my go to face mask for when my skin feels congested and like I’m about to break out. It’s also a mask that I do once a week regardless as a preventative measure against break outs. It truly helps with regulating my pores. I keep it on until it’s 90% dry and then rinse it off (as I don’t want to dehydrate or overly dry out my skin). I love this mask and I’ve seen such a huge difference since I started using it!

Tatcha Silk Canvas Protective Primer
TATCHA - The Silk Canvas Protective Primer LITERALLY MY GO TO PRIMER! I reach for this every single time I do makeup and during no makeup days where I want to conceal my pores a bit. I love how a little goes a long way with this product and that it blends so nicely. Its such a great primer and does a good job at covering my pores. I especially love how luxurious the packaging is as well as its signature tatcha scent! Would repurchase anyday

💜Tatcha Brand Spotlight 💜
💜this week I decided to spotlight Tatcha & decide what I love & don’t love as much from this brand! I’ve only ever tried their Silk Canvas Primer & loved it. I love the way all the packaging looks & the way everything smells! 💜What are the claims? •Tatcha Water cream - An oil free, anti aging water cream that releases a burst of skin improving Japanese nutrients, botanicals & moisture. For normal, oily & combo skin types. Formulated for dryness, pores, acne, & uneven texture. •Tatcha Violet-C brightening Serum - A 20% vitamin C & 10% AHA serum with pure ingredients & gentle strength that helps soften, brighten, & smooth for more radiant even tone skin. For all skin types, to brighten, smooth, & gently exfoliate. •Tatcha Dewy Skin cream - A rich cream that feeds the skin with plumping hydration & antioxidant packed Japanese purple rice for Healthy glow. For dry, sensitive, & normal skin. Formulated for dryness, dullness, loss of firmness & elasticity. •Tatcha Deep Cleanse - A daily gel cleanser with natural fruit exfoliant that thoroughly but gently lifts impurities & unclogs pores while leaving skin soft & hydrated. For all skin types. Formulated for pores, dullness & uneven texture & acne. 💜Texture/Consistency? •Tatcha Water Cream - smooth Thin gel •Tatcha Dewy Skin Cream - Thick hydrating cream •Tatcha Deep Cleanse - A thin gel cleanser •Tatcha Violet-C brightening serum - Very smooth water consistency 💜My thoughts overall? I honestly can say I love everything! It was amazing on my skin! 😊I love Tatcha products, makeup & skincare & I love the way my skin looks & feels after I use them! My least favorite out of all of them, would be the water cream, I just don’t think it is as hydrating as I would like in a moisturizer since I have dry/sensitive skin. I prefer the dewy skin cream, deep cleanse & Violet-C serum! My skin soaked up all of the amazing ingredients for a super glowy look. I defiantly would like to purchase the full size dewy skin cream, my skin loves that! It doesn’t break out or irritate my skin, it’s super gentle yet effective & really moisturizes my skin. 💜Price Vs. Size? •Dewy Skin cream - $68 for 1.7oz, worth it for me! •Water Cream - $68 for 1.7oz, not worth it for me •Violet-C Serum - $88 for 1oz, worth it! •Deep Cleanse - $38 for 5oz, worth it!! What are your thoughts on the brand/products?! Let me know! ⬇️⬇️⬇️⬇️ TATCHA - The Dewy Skin Cream TATCHA - Violet-C Brightening Serum 20% Vitamin C + 10% AHA TATCHA - The Water Cream TATCHA - The Deep Cleanse Exfoliating Cleanser
TATCHA-The Deep Cleanse Exfoliating Cleanser
pixi - Skintreats, FortifEye, Firming Eye Patches, 30 Pairs this is a really nice pick-me-up for those that need a hydration and refreshment for the under-eye area. I especially like the jar packaging as individually bagged eye patches can be so wasteful. If you struggle with puffiness in the morning, definitely give this a try!

Ceramidin to the Rescue!
Dr. Jart+ - Ceramidin Cream Skin Type: I have combination skin but more acne prone so leaning toward oily side. I have sensitive skin so I definitely am careful when I put anything on my face. Product Function: This moisturizer is my go to when my skin is way too dry or if I overexfoliated. It has also saved me when i have redness or inflammation, especially during and after a pimple. Texture: Thick and silky and glides beautifully on the face. Packaging: Tube and I recommend one of those clips that will take out product for you since a lot can be lost near the end. Recommend: I 100% recommend, especially for dry skin. Worth it? Yes! Especially for those with sensitive, dry skin.
