⚡️SKIN SAVIOR SERUMS ⚡️
These are some of my newer serums that I’ve been using for a few months now and I’m totally in love!! Here’s how I use them and what they do for me 🥰 My Skin Type: Very Combination, Rosacea, Light skin tone, 21 yrs old PEACH & LILY - Glass Skin Refining Serum Price: $39/40 mL Ingredients: niacinamide, peach extract, peptides, hyaluronic acid Thoughts: This serum is PERFECT for combination skin! Its super hydrating and also controls excess oil production with the niacinamide/HA combo. I find that it really makes my skin look healthy and balanced and keeps breakouts at bay. I usually use niacinamide products at night because I tend to get the most oily over night. Love it so much!💕 FARMACY - Honeymoon Glow Serum Price: $58/1 oz Ingredients: AHA, BHA, flower acids, honey, HA Thoughts: Easily my favorite chemical exfoliator! Much gentler than The Ordinary - AHA 30% + BHA 2% Peeling Solution which I do love but rarely feel that I am able to use because my skin is easily sensitized, but this farmacy serum gets the job done and I LOVE that its a serum that I can leave on over night and wake up to soft glowy skin! PAULA'S CHOICE - Defense Antioxidant Pore Purifier Price: $31/1 oz Ingredients: salicylic acid, vit C, licorice root, ceramides, coq10, other antioxidants Thoughts: this is my GO TO morning serum! Not only does it clear my pores and keep my oil production at bay, as well as reduce the inflammation of any acne I’m experiencing, its also very hydrating and protects your skin from free radicals and aging! Its really such a well rounded product that does a bit of everything and works so well, my favorite PC product ❤️ Krave - Great Barrier Relief Price: $28/45 mL Ingredients: tamanu, sunflower, & rosehip oils, squalane, vit b3, ceramides Thoughts: a GREAT moisturizer for when your skin is super dehydrated or sensitive, it really gives a great reset. I gave it 4 stars because its marketed as a serum when its very much a cream-consistency, and I cant use it too often because the oils tend to clog my T zone. However it definitely does what its meant to do and when nothing else helps, this product DOES! Have you tried these serums? Whats your favorite? Lmk any questions you have!!
How many masks are too many...?
I used to love masking! I’d do at least 1 to 2 a week. Now I’ve gotten lazy and just don’t do them and I have so many I need to start using before they expire! For me, I feel having an exfoliating mask and a hydrating mask is all you need. Unless your using the product consistently you’re not going to see changes. Masks are great for plumping up the skin, adding hydration and even a soft glow. But of all the masks I’ve used I’ve never found long term effects from them (except exfoliating). One way I like to use them is right before a big night (or day) out. To give my skin that added boost. Some that are great for doing so are: FARMACY - Honey Potion Renewing Antioxidant Hydration Mask GLOW RECIPE - Watermelon + AHA Glow Sleeping Mask (use as a 10 min mask) SUMMER FRIDAYS - Jet Lag Mask FIRST AID BEAUTY - Hello FAB Ginger & Turmeric Vitamin C Jelly Mask And many others that help brighten and hydrate! I will also not go without my exfoliating masks which I do once a week. Some faves are: PAULA'S CHOICE - 25% AHA + 2% BHA Exfoliant Peel YOUTH TO THE PEOPLE - Yerba Mate Resurfacing Energy Facial The Ordinary - AHA 30% + BHA 2% Peeling Solution HERBIVORE - Prism 20% AHA + 5% BHA Exfoliating Glow Facial And a few others I have that I liked to use; BIOSSANCE - Squalane + Tea Tree Detox Mask ELEMIS - Superfood Vital Veggie Mask bliss - Mighty Marshmallow Mask Unfortunately as I said, I just don’t mask as often as I used to. And I feel it isn’t necessary. If you like to then I suggest you get yourself an exfoliating and moisturizing/hydrating mask and you should be good to go. Treatments are where you want to really zone in and specialize your finances for. Is it Friday yet? Ugh! I’ve been down all week with a neck I cannot turn - ouchie! And a migraine on top of that! I’m ready to knock my dogs out cause they are wanting out every half hour (it’s nice here ⛅️) Much ❤️ my skinnies 🍒

This daily morning routine has saved my skin 🍊
Start every morning with this routine and some hot lemon water. 🍋 Quick disclaimer I’m a HUGE Ole Henriksen fan 💫 I use Ole Henriksen truth juice daily cleanser to cleanse my face everyday, on days that I feel a little more oily or just want a good scrub on my face I’ll use Ole Henriksen pore-balance facial sauna scrub. It feels sooo amazing, it’s hot when your scrubbing it into your skin and it’s cool as soon as you wash it off 🥵🥶OLE HENRIKSEN - Pore-Balance Facial Sauna Scrub OLE HENRIKSEN - Truth Juice Daily Cleanser Next I like to use both a toner and an essence. I use Ole Henriksen balancing force oil control toner. After cleansing I use this with a cotton pad going all over my face and neck.OLE HENRIKSEN - Balancing Force Oil Control Toner Next, I use FRESH black tea kombucha essence. I just put a couple drops into my hands and pat it all over my face and neck.fresh - Kombucha Facial Treatment Essence Nyc Limited Edition Next, I use Ole Henriksen truth serum (Ive been using this for years and it’s amazing I’ll probably use it for many many more) Again just putting it into my hand and putting it all over my face and neck. OLE HENRIKSEN - Truth Serum I then use The Ordinary Hyaluronic acid 2% + B5 before I use my moisturize.The Ordinary - Hyaluronic Acid 2% + B5 I use Drunk Elephant Protini Polypeptide creme all over my face and next. DRUNK ELEPHANT - Protini Polypeptide Cream Followed by my eye creams I use a very small amount of The Ordinary Caffeine solution 5% + EGCG The Ordinary - Caffeine Solution 5% + EGCG Then I use a pea sized amount of the banana bright eye creme by Ole Henriksen to follow. OLE HENRIKSEN - Banana Bright Eye Crème After all that I top with Joise Maran argon daily SPF 47 JOSIE MARAN - Replacement Pump for Argan Daily Moisturizer SPF 47 & Argan Oil Hair Serum (not in the photo because I broke the bottle 😫 ) I wanna love this product but it’s super suppppppper heavy/creamy for my skin.. so if your a little more oily just watch out for this! I am looking for something a little more light weight so if you have recommendations, let a girl know 🙋🏽♀️ Thanks 💫💞
The Importance of Layering Skincare in Order
In the past couple of weeks, I wasn’t seeing much of a progress in how my skin was going. Yes, my skin was cleaner but I still felt like I was mostly improvising the order of the products. That’s when I decided to research how to properly apply skincare products. From my extensive research, I discovered the right order for AM and PM skincare routines. AM: 💫 Cleanser I start my day with the OLE HENRIKSEN - Find Your Balance Oil Control Cleanser 💫💫 Toner I then go in with my OLE HENRIKSEN - Balancing Force Oil Control Toner I simply put some on a cotton pad and get rid of the remaining dirt and rebalance my pH. 2.5: Jade roller massage This is a step I do to help with the inflammation from remaining/new cystic acne that works amazingly. The cooling effect of the SMARTR SKIN - Jade Roller for Face with Gua Sha facial tool does wonders. 💫💫💫 Serums The serum I use in the morning is the OLE HENRIKSEN - Truth Serum It smells great and helps brighten my skin. 💫💫💫💫 Eye cream For this step, I use the OLE HENRIKSEN - Banana Bright Eye Crème It helps brighten under my sleep deprived eyes and has a light shimmer to it. 💫💫💫💫💫 Moisturizer I used to use the OLE HENRIKSEN - C-Rush Brightening Double Crème which I previously gave a 5 star review to. In the long run, I saw that my skin was getting oiler when I used this moisturizer. The one I am currently using is the OLE HENRIKSEN - Sheer Transformation Perfecting Moisturizer which is light and gel like and very refreshing. 💫💫💫💫💫💫 Face oil I’ve recently received a sample of BIOSSANCE - Squalane + Vitamin C Rose Oil and this face oil is the most exquisite and light face oil I’ve ever tried. Definitely purchasing the full size bottle. 💫💫💫💫💫💫💫 Sunscreen My sunscreen is the VICHY - Idéal Soleil Ultra-Light Face Sunscreen Broad Spectrum SPF 50 which I apply consistently on my face throughout the day whether I go outside or not. PM: 💫 Cleanser I use the same cleanser as the AM. It helps take out all the dirt accumulated during the day. 💫💫 Toner Same here! I use the same toner as the AM and my face feels refreshed before going to bed. 💫💫💫 Serums Here, I go with the OLE HENRIKSEN - Invigorating Night Transformation Gel When I wake up, my face feels unbelievable. The chemical exfoliator does one hell of a trick. 💫💫💫💫 Eye cream I purchased this Kiehl's - Creamy Eye Treatment With Avocado a while back but couldn’t wear it during the day due to its thickness. I now wear it at night and it stays on all night long. 💫💫💫💫💫 Moisturizer I finish up with my moisturizer OLE HENRIKSEN - Sheer Transformation Perfecting Moisturizer This might not work for everyone but, I’m definitely seeing changes!
Morning/Night Skincare Routine(Fungal Acne Safe)
Hi everyone!! I am 15 years old and had suffered from fungal acne. It took me awhile to find a routine that will keep my skin on check. I still get breakouts here and then but it’s not crazy. I have oily combination skin as well. Morning: Cleanser: Aveeno - Ultra-Calming Foaming Cleanser Toner: THAYERS - Rose Petal Facial Toner Serum: The Ordinary - Niacinamide 10% + Zinc 1% Moisturizer/Sunscreen: OLAY - Complete All Day UV Moisturizer SPF 15 Sensitive Skin Night: Double cleanse: GARNIER - SkinActive Micellar Cleansing Water with Rose Water JUICE BEAUTY - Blemish Clearing Cleanser Toner: THAYERS - Rose Petal Facial Toner Serum: The Ordinary - Niacinamide 10% + Zinc 1% Mositerizer: Neutrogena - Hydro Boost Water Gel Spot Treatment: Clearasil - Stubborn Acne Control 5in1 Spot Treatment Cream 2x a week I exfoliate with NOXZEMA - Anti Blemish Pads and every sundays I use the AZTEC SECRET - Indian Healing Clay to get all the gunk out before starting a new week
Ole Henriksen Brightening Skincare Set Review
I’ve been using the OLE HENRIKSEN - Let's Get Luminous Brightening Essentials Set for nearly two months & with 2/3 products now empty I am ready to review! Firstly, the set is great value. For $55AUD (from Sephora) you get 3 good sized products. The moisturiser is a full size jar and the truth serum lasted me 2 months using 3 pumps of it every day! & I’ve barely broken the surface of the banana eye cream (although we’ll get into why that is 🥴). I read glowing reviews of all the products both on Cherie & on the Sephora site so I was so excited to get going with them and I have to say, I am disappointed. I’ve kept all 3 of these products as day time use only and used just these +sunscreen for my morning skincare routine in the week (if I’m getting up at 6am, 4 steps is more than enough 💀) & would only add toner & hyaluronic acid on the weekend. OLE HENRIKSEN - Truth Serum is a really nice gel like texture that absorbs super fast & is orange scented. It claims to smooth, soften & improve radiance in your skin in 2 months & at 1st I would have agreed, but every time that time of month rolled in, my hormonal acne was able to steam roll over any effects & if anything, my spots have been more consistent and hung around longer. I think there are suuurely many more vitamin C serums that are more effective and cheaper- this shit is $70AUD for 30ml! But if you want to give it a try, I recommend this large sample size. The OLE HENRIKSEN - C-Rush Vitamin C Gel Moisturizer I had a much better time with. This is a lightweight, peach coloured gel that absorbs quickly & is genuinely refreshing to put on. It claims to give an instant glow, & although my skin did look a little nicer and felt plumper, I’d say the claim that it fights dullness throughout the day is false. After a few hours, my skin would feel dry & I’d get some pilling on my neck, but because of the refreshing feel, I didn’t mind too much reapplying. However if you wear make up over this (which it claims to improve) that’s obviously not an option. Finally the OLE HENRIKSEN - Banana Bright Eye Crème claims to fight fine lines, reduce dark circles and firm and hydrate my eyes. I’m not a big believer in eye creams being much more than overpriced moisturiser (unless they contain retinol) but what intrigued me was the banana powder. I was viewing this more as makeup primer than skincare, just wanting a brightening effect for the day & it STILL managed to let me down. Not only did I not see any of those claims met but the thick, almost gritty consistency just wrecked my concealer when I did try it under makeup. It would streak it (even when I patted it/used a beauty blender) and moved it around my skin. As a basic eye hydrator it’s fine, but tbh I’m glad I got a sample size. I Included before & after application photos so you can judge the instant effects for yourself! Let me know your thoughts 🧡

My morning routine
Hi everyone 👋 these are my daily morning routine products! Let me know what you think! bliss - Clear Genius Clarifying Gel Cleanser bliss - Clear Genius Clarifying Toner + Serum I’ve already talked about the first two products in my nighttime routine so if you wanna hear my thoughts on those check out my first post! HOWEVER, I don’t always use the cleanser in the morning because like Cassandra Bankson said “how dirty can your face get overnight?”. So I only cleanse if my face is super oily (which it rarely is). If it isn’t oily then I skip straight to my toner. The Ordinary - Niacinamide 10% + Zinc 1% I put this on after my bliss serum only on my problem areas such as breakouts and large pores just as a gentle spot treatment. I gave this 4 stars because I had used up an entire bottle and repurchased and still don’t see wonderful results. It does minimize pores and oil production but it takes a long time to get rid of breakouts and doesn’t heal acne scars or prevent future breakouts like the bliss clear genius does. ORIGINS - Clear Improvement Pore Clearing Moisturizer with Salicylic Acid bliss - Bright Idea Vitamin C + Tri-Peptide Collagen Protecting & Brightening Moisturizer I switch between these two moisturizers depending on what I need for the day. If I’m having a really bad breakout day I will use origins because of that extra acne fighting power. I rated it 4 stars however because it piles off and although it isn’t oily it looks like it on the skin if you put just a bit too much. The bliss bright idea is my go to for everyday and has not caused me any problems. It has vitimin c and collagen which will leave your skin moisturized and help with brightening and clearing scars. It also has niacinamide which is going to help with the oil production. I love this cause it is amazingly moisturizing, fighting oily skin, clearing acne scars, brightening and antiwrinkle!

A week of skincare (daisy wanted in on this)
➡️PROGRESS PHOTOS (last two) TAKEN AFTER TWO WEEKS OF CONSISTENCY As a 19 year old working in fast food, keeping a routine can be hard. And working in a greasy environment for 45 hours a week really takes a toll on my skin. However, these are the products that I have been consistently using that have cleared my skin!! A week of skincare for me looks like this: Every morning I use the CeraVe - Salicylic Acid Facial Cleanser it’s VERY gentle for my sensitive skin & keeps my face looking clean and reduces the appearance of the blackheads around my nose. At night I use the CeraVe - Acne Foaming Cream Cleanser This cleanser is also incredibly gently. I used to use the differin cleanser, but this one does the same job but it much less drying on my skin!! Again, I’m a sensitive one. One a week, usually on my day off from work, I use the The Ordinary - AHA 30% + BHA 2% Peeling Solution this has SERIOUSLY transformed my skin. It does hurt at times when my skin is breaking out, but it has helped clear my maskne, that’s for sure. Twice a week I use the The Ordinary - Salicylic Acid 2% Masque This is another mask that you leave on for only 10 minutes. It has proven to reduce the appearance of my acne, as well as to help it go away much quicker. The Ordinary - Glycolic Acid 7% Toning Solution this is a product I use 2-3 times a week and only at night. It does make the skin more sensitive to sunlight, but it makes the area around my nose less oily. Mostly used as needed. CeraVe - Eye Repair Cream I’ve never enjoyed an eye cream until I tried this one. They always seemed gimmicky to me. However, the area around my eyes started getting dry this summer, so I started patting this in morning and night and I will definitely be repurchasing!! CeraVe - Moisturizing Cream For Normal To Dry Skin need I really say anything about this? We all know how fantastic this product is. Just use it. CeraVe - Resurfacing Retinol Serum this was a new purchase for me in an attempt to clear my chin acne that surfaced from wearing masks and having sensitive skin. After two days of using this serum at night, I saw SIGNIFICANT fading of my acne marks! This is also a great light retinol to work your way into using stronger ones! The Ordinary - Niacinamide 10% + Zinc 1% I use this serum immediately before applying moisturizer. It reduces the appearance of the texture on my face and I’m on my third bottle!! DIFFERIN - DIFFERIN Acne Treatment Gel this is a product that you may want to give up on after using a couple times. It is incredibly drying (use the cerave moisturizer!!!!!) however, it is definitely worth pushing through to get the results you desire!! Remember, with strong acne treatments, purging is normal at first!!
The Ordinary-AHA 30% + BHA 2% Peeling Solution
Are you troubled by acne, blackheads, and coarse pores? Follow the weekly skincare routine, and you may solve it!
Do you know the skin type could be changed? I was oily-skin type 4 or 5 years ago but now combination type with only T area oil while another area normal. If you are trouble by oily skin, or acne, blackheads, and coarse pores caused by it, you can try my skincare routine. Firstly, you have to know why the skin goes oil. One of the factors is sebaceous glands. When sebaceous glands go active, your skin will secrete oil. Except for metabolism, sebaceous goes active when the skin dehydrated. The other factor is cleansing. If you can not remove the dirt or makeup altogether when washing face, the skin will also secrete oil. Thus, choose the right cleanser and hydration product! You can do deep cleansing once a week (Twice a week is also excellent if needed). My weekly skincare routine is: EVE LOM - EVE LOM Cleanser Multi-award-winning product. The key ingredients are clove oil, eucalyptus oil, hops oil, Egyptian chamomile oil, and cocoa butter, which are all-natural ingredients that are good for cleansing and smoothing. You can put some balm on face and massage for a while (feeling the lotion spreading over as oil). Then, use the muslin cloth of the same brand (In some promotions, you could receive it as a gift) or wash your face with hands. ORIGINS - Clear Improvement Active Charcoal Mask to Clear Pores It is specialized for clear pores. Active charcoal can draw out deep-dwelling cloggers from the pore. It works better if you use warm towels to open pores first. You can wear the mask for a while. When you start to feel dry, you can wash the mask away. Normal skincare routine. Use product signature for hydration, for example, ORIGINS - Mega-Mushroom Relief & Resilience Soothing Treatment Lotionand Kiehl's - Ultra Facial Cream For me, I stick to the routine for a month; the skin showed much better than it was. Sometimes it even stayed oil-free for a whole day! Also, to improve the skin condition and make it healthier-looking, it will be useful to eat less fried food and sweets at the same time. Try it for a month, and you will see the difference!
