Changed my skin in 2 days!!
These two products basically transformed my skin in 2 days!! For some reason I suddenly broke out on my cheeks, and I NEVER break out on my cheeks! I picked up this peptide moisturizer from Sephora during the VIBsale in April because I heard it was a dupe for Drunk Elephant Protini Moisturizer. Honestly the Drunk Elephant one broke me out :( 🤩THE inkey LIST - Peptide Moisturizer

Textures are everything 😍
Being a skincare addict comes with being addicted to textures. I love textures because they really help me figure out whether I love/like a product or not. These 3 textures are super different from one another but really make a difference on my skin! belif - Pore Cleaner Bubble Foam This cleaner is really interesting because it goes on like a gel but it foams up and it feels like the bubbles are cleansing your skin! I like it but I find it to be too stripping on my skin OLE HENRIKSEN - Transforming Walnut Scrub This walnut scrub is semi-gritty and super gentle. I like to use this on a monthly basis to just slush off all the dead skin cells! Sometimes you just need a good physical exfoliater! MISSHA - Essence Sun SPF 45 PA+++ This sunscreen has been such a life savior for me the past few weeks. It has a satin finish and doesn’t leave a white cast! Even though it’s a chemical sunscreen I find that it doesn’t seem to irritate my skin at all! I love that about this sunscreen & it’s a must-have in my daily routine. These products are nice but I highly recommend the ole henriksen scrub & missha sunscreen, and the belif one only if you like a super stripping cleanser!
No white cast!
Easily absorbable and non greasy for me! Even when reapply it doesn’t feel greasy. I am more of a sun essence girl. More importantly it leaves no white cast. It does have this scent, but it’s not too bad. With this I have noticed my wrinkles getting less visible and mostly my skin doesn’t feel as greasy. MISSHA - Essence Sun SPF 45 PA+++
A gray day provides the best light!
“Gray is the queen of colors, because she makes everyone else look good.” Helen Van Wyk Had some time now to give all these a go. Paula’s Choice Skin Perfecting 2% BHA exfoliant I’m loving! Lives up to the hype 2nd fave - Tranexamic Acid from The Inkey List. I don’t know why but every time I wear this overnight I wake up with a much more even skin tone! 3rd place and great value for money is The Inkey List Oat Cleansing Balm. I love the gentle grit when applying this through gentle massage. Least fave would have to be, TIL Peptide Moisturiser- thought it might be a dupe for DE Protini which I LOVE but sadly it was a bit of a miss for me. But I’ll use it up. The Ordinary Ascorbic Acid is a bit oily for my liking but it’s quite nice and I’ve been using it at night time. I do find it quite effective though to give me a brightened complexion.
Affordable lightweight peptide moisturizer
I’ve been using THE inkey LIST - Peptide Moisturizer for about a month now so I’m ready to share my thoughts on it. This is a nourishing daily moisturizer that contains a peptide duo that helps support natural collagen by decreasing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles as well as hydrate the skin. The two peptides in this are acetyl hexapeptide-37, which helps with surface level hydration, and pentapeptide-48 that helps with skin rejuvenation. Other notable ingredients in this formulation are glycerin, shea butter, betaine, and vitamin e. I was worried that this would be to heavy for my skin due to the shea butter but this was surprisingly lightweight. It has a medium weight cream texture that sinks into the skin fairly quick. It leaves a natural skin finish that doesn’t feel greasy or heavy on the skin. It just feels like moisturized skin after it dries down completely. I quite liked this cream a lot since it provided enough hydration and nourishment to my skin throughout the day and night. The results I got from this were pretty expected. My skin just felt supple and moisturized. As far as anti-aging benefits from the peptides, I’d have to use it for a much longer period to see those results if there are any. I’m aware people are thinking this would be a dupe for Drunk Elephant’s protini but I don’t think that’s the case since they both have varying ingredients as well as textures. DE’s felt more like a gel cream that has a lot more ingredients and peptides in their formulation but that’s not to say this isn’t a great moisturizer all on it’s own. This is a wonderful moisturizer for any skin type that’s also affordable and comes in a great packaging that dispenses the perfect amount each time. This didn’t irritate my skin or cause any breakouts as well so that’s always a plus for me. Overall, I was very impressed by this moisturizer. It kept my skin hydrated, nourished, and moisturized all at a great price and I just love the pump jar packaging. I would definitely repurchase this again in the future. Have you guys tried this yet? If so, any thoughts? Rating: 4/5 🌟 #CherieCreator #TheInkeyList
My PM Routine
🌙 For combo/dry skin 🌙 Kate Somerville Goat Milk Cleanser: $38 a cream cleanser containing goat milk and manuka honey...also my favorite cleanser of all time. This is so gentle and pleasant to use...great for dry or sensitive skin. 🌙 CosRX Propolis Synergy Toner: $23 a toner containing 72.5% propolis and 10% honey...this is so so for me. I typically really like honey for giving my skin hydration and glow but this one just doesn’t do a lot for me 🤷🏻♀️ 🌙 Drunk Elephant A Passioni Retinol Cream $74 and B Hydra $48...I like to mix these two together to improve the texture of and buffer the retinol. A Passioni is a 1% retinol so it’s pretty strong but the B Hydra contains ceramides and provitamin B5 to help hydrate the skin and minimize the drying effects of the retinol. 🌙 Milk Makeup Vegan Milk Moisturizer $38 is a rich cream moisturizer containing antioxidant rich fig milk, soothing oat milk, and a plethora of antioxidant rich oils. This stuff sinks into the skin quickly but leaves the skin feeling incredibly hydrated and soft.

Krave Beauty The Beet Shield Review
My current favorite spf is the @kravebeauty the beet shield. In Korea this is marketed as sunscreen but bc the US FDA has not updated their beauty/skincare regulation in the last 80 years, the Beet Shield in the US is marketed as an antioxidant-rich day fluid. It is the same formula as the Korean version (Beet the Sun SPF 50+ PA++++) though so don’t be alarmed. I love how easily this absorbs into the skin. It has a condensed milk kind of texture but it isn’t sticky at all once it is applied all over the skin. It does not pill under makeup and it doesn’t leave my face feeling greasy at all which is a huge plus for me since I have oily skin. 5/5 from me 💚💚💚💚💚 My only gripe with this is the scent. It does have a slight weird scent to it but after a while it does disappear. I don’t hear a lot of people talking about its scent but then again, I have a super sensitive nose. It doesn’t bother me too much since it disappears after a while, unlike their GBR (I can’t stand that smell 😩). I know I have talked about this brand before like pretty recently but I really do enjoy this brand. Not only for their products but for the brand’s philosophy and what they stand for. PRESS RESET!

💛 Hada Labo Goku-jyun Premium Lotion💛 𝗪𝐡𝐚𝐭 𝐢𝐭 𝐢𝐬: an ultra hydrating Japanese moisturizer milk. The milky moisturizer is formulated using Rohto’s newly developed “moisture sealing” technology that wraps skin like a hydrating cream mask to prevent moisture from escaping the skin 𝐢𝐧𝐠𝐫𝐞𝐝𝐢𝐞𝐧𝐭𝐬: - five-layer mixing of Hyaluronic Acid, which upgrades the moisturizing power of the skin. - Sacran extract, a natural moisturizing factor with a high-water retention ability, forms a moister barrier and prevents moisture evaporation. ___________________________________ Another cult favorite! 😁 Who doesn’t love Hada Labo anyway? 💙 I’ve been loving all products i’ve tried from the brand so far. I think the Premium Milk Lotion in particular is a really quality product and great value!! Super love how hydrating and smoothing it is. I use few drops after washing my face, on wet skin. It works wonderfully in plumping the face and holding the moisture in, almost feeling like I have a sheet mask on! Or should I say, gives a literal moisture-wrap feel 🥰 I then slather more (that’s how much I enjoy it) wait a lil until it gets absorbed and follow up with either a treatment or seal everything in with a moisturizer. The lotion leaves my skin a healthy glow but not oily. For me, it’s the best source for a hyaluronic supercharge I've found so far. It’s fragrance free so I highly recommend it — it does what it says and does it well! ____________________________________ 𝐦𝐲 𝐬𝐤𝐢𝐧 𝐭𝐲𝐩𝐞: combination, acne prone. ~ i use the product only as part of my night routine. I once tried it on during the day and it made me a lil greasy but I think would work just awesome for dry skinned gals! ____________________________________ 𝐰𝐡𝐞𝐫𝐞 𝐭𝐨 𝐛𝐮𝐲? available on amazon for $15 / 170ml 𝐩𝐫𝐨𝐝𝐮𝐜𝐭 𝐫𝐚𝐭𝐢𝐧𝐠: 5/5⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

☀️ Sunscreen that suits Black & Brown skin ☀️
It is difficult for us, black & brown skins, to find the perfect sunscreen that doesn’t look like you are casket ready! 😭 On my feed, I will definitely show you some gems! It is primordial to know that Black and Brown skins need protection from the sun so if you are looking for a sunscreen that has a high SPF, makes you glow and does not leave a white cast, look no further... . I’m in love with this sunscreen from PAULA’S CHOICE. It minimize the appearance of my pores and provides the right hydration for my combination skin. . You can see how clear it is on my skin. ☀️ A.M only as the last step of your skincare routine right before makeup. PAULA'S CHOICE - Youth-Extending Daily Hydrating Fluid

I didn’t know I’d be this obsessed 😍
I am utterly HEART EYES over this exfoliating serum! I have sensitive skin and am often hesitant on trying exfoliants. This was my first introduction to a chemical exfoliant and to say I’m obsessed is a down play. I started off using this product once a week and now I have a schedule of using it every weds+fri. There’s a slight tingle upon application and it lasts about 30secs at max. After application I go ahead and apply my Versed moisturizer. In the morning I feel plump, dewy, and fresh! VERSED - SKIN SOAK Rich Moisture Cream After about a month of use this product has helped the overall texture of my skin and I see a major difference in skin tone. I will definitely be repurchasing and highly recommend this product for my sensitive skin friends 💕 FARMACY - Honeymoon Glow Serum

Brand Spotlight：DE products i’ve tried so far
🐘 These are the first DE products I've had a pleasure to try but I didn't quite see what the hype was about 🤷♀️? DON'T get me wrong; -The ingredients are AMAZING👏💖! - It doesn't pill when mixing any ingredient (I've tried). - It's fragrant-free (A + for me!) 🐘...So, the ONLY downfall for me is that they just don't work for me！ 🌱Protini Polypeptide: I found this overall is too thick for a daily cream. I personally prefer a matte look but this one left my skin feeling heavy, similar to a heavy sunscreen. It tends to make me oilier than usual when used during the day so I only used this exclusively as an eye cream as as my eyes need more care and hydration.. Is it worth the price tho? absolutely not. 💧B-hydra： totally just did not work for me as well. It does nothing special than any drugstore hydrators. It provides good hydration for my oily skin but may not be sufficient for dry skin.It contains pineapple, watermelon, apple extracts which may cause irritation potentially. Over my experience, I think it’s a good fragrance-free (also cruelty-free) but overhyped brand. If you have dry skin, you could give it a try. Maybe you will get incredible results compared to the high price.
