Coconut coffee bliss 🤤
Coconut coffee bliss 🤤
This was an impulse 3am Amazon buy and it was one of the best decisions I've made in months. This body wash is all around amazing with a mid-heavy consistency. Several weeks ago I had covid and ironically this was the only thing I could smell....that just made my love for it so much stronger lol It contains small microbeads for exfoliation that resemble coffee grounds. Plus, I bought this 19.5oz bottle for $7.99-- that's as close to free I'll get for a large bottle of pure heaven in body wash form. ogx - Coconut Coffee Body Wash 5/5, I fully recommend and I've now subscribed on Amazon to have it sent to me every few months.

To be honest I was a bit skeptical about using this product because I tend to break out around my lips pretty frequently. I was pleasantly surprised with how gentle this lip treatment is. I own a variety of hempz products and they all smell fantastic and they're very moisturizing. This lip treatment claims to hydrate and soften lips and provide sun protection (spf 15). My only complaint about this product is having to keep reapplying throughout the day. I already use aquaphor for lips and the two together felt heavy and super greasy. I will probably continue to use the Hempz on days I feel my lips need a pick me up. This was also pretty pricey ($15 at Ulta) for a bottle that probably won't last more than 3 months with daily application 😞 HEMPZ - CBD Lip Service Nourishing Lip Conditioner SPF 15

First time using PHA
First time using PHA
I've been using AHAs and BHAs for almost a year now so I was super excited to try another product in the acid family. Polyhydroxy acids (PHA) are a close relative of AHAs. They both are chemical exfoliates, best known for their ability to 'even out' skin texture and hyperpigmentation. With all acids, there's always the risk of overexfoliation and dryness. PHAs are the more gentler acids due to their large (poly) molecular size, meaning their mechanism is slower than AHAs or BHAs. PHAs are a great alternative for those with sensitive skin who typically cannot tolerate AHAs or BHAs. I have combo skin so I added this into my nightly regime before applying any serums and moisturizer. I started using several times a week and I wasn't pleased. My skin felt heavy, greasy and I was breaking out. PHAs also serve as humectants and they do a great job at drawing water into the skin and retaining as moisture. With that being said, I cut down to using this product twice a week at most and I've noticed wonderful results. My skin now feels plump, moist, soft with no new breakouts. Neutrogena - Skin Balancing Gel Cleanser Highly recommend to anyone with sensitive skin looking to gently exfoliate with the extra moisture boost

Good idea, poor execution.

I had high hopes when I first bought this sleep mask. Aveeno products have worked wonders for my skin in the past, however this one doesn't make the cut. As usual the first one to two applications were great, until several days later my skin is breaking out left and right. The mask has a great scent, but the texture is heavy and leaves an oily residue behind. This mask claims to contain soy and kiwi to nourish the skin and keep it hydrated. My skin locked in the moisture so much it became an oily mess. For my buddies who also have acne prone skin, THIS IS NOT YOUR FRIEND! I will be sticking to my Aveeno colloidal oatmeal moisturizer instead. Aveeno - Positively Radiant, MaxGlow No-Mess Sleep Mask

FORMULA 10.0.6 - Seriously Shine Free Mattifying Oil Free Moisturizer When I first bought this moisturizer I had really high hopes that it would work for my skin. This was my first time trying any products from Formula 10.0.6. I have oily and acne prone skin that tends to be very sensitive to introducing new products. The first week or two using this moisturizer daily, my skin looked and felt great. This moisturizer felt lightweight, has a great scent and overall kept my skin feeling very smooth and hydrated. By the third week my skin felt very greasy and heavy almost immediately after applying this moisturizer I did some experiments and tried to use it by itself to test if it was in fact this product making my skin oily. Eventually I grew tired of the heaviness of this moisturizer after suffering days and days of breakouts and unmanageable oiliness. I switched to an Aveeno sensitive skin moisturizer and it's worked great on my skin. I will still try other Formula 10.0.6 products in the future, however this moisturizer will not be one of them..

How I Recover From My Period Breakouts!
How I Recover From My Period Breakouts!
THIS is my secret for post period blemishes. This gentle retinol is what I use after I get hormonal/period breakouts and irritation. I know it sucks, but there's not much you can do to completely prevent period blemishes...you can't control your hormones😔. But you can definitely help calm your skin, minimize irritation, & keep pimples at bay. And they're ways to help speed up the healing process and get rid of them fast afterwards! Which is why I love the CeraVe - Resurfacing Retinol Serum . It took me a while to hop on the CeraVe train because I'm a sucker when it comes to the cute packaging and glam products. But simple, budget friendly, and effective skin care has pulled me in! About The Brand 🐳 CeraVe is a very popular drugstore brand that is constantly being recommended by dermatologists, and loved by many skincare enthusiasts. Their products are formulated by dermatologists in a no B.S, simplistic approach. They don't include fragrance and other possible irritants. And they focus on skin barrier strengthening ingredients, and non-comogodenic formulations. Their products are at a decent price point and found at most drugstores. The Formulation 🐳 This product is targeted towards textured skin, post acne marks, and pores, using encapsulated retinol to resurface skin. This is formulated to smooth out skin, and fade dark spots really well, WITHOUT compromising the skin barrier. Star Ingredients 🌟 - Retinol - Licorice Root Extract - Ceramides - Niacinamide 🌟 Retinol is one of the most popular ingredients on the market. It's the gold standard for anti-aging, and in the past few years, acne too. It promotes your skins natural exfoliation process and works to refine & resurface your skin. Depending on the strength and formulation of the retinol, It dramatically helps with fine lines, wrinkles, texture, and hyperpigmentation/ uneven tone skin. 🌟 Licorice Root Extract is a very potent antioxidant and great, gentle skin brightener! It helps to inhibit the production of melanin and remove excess melanin, which helps improve hyperpigmentation. This ingredient also has great anti-inflammatory and calming benefits. 🌟 Ceramides essentially hold our skin cells together and keep our skin barrier intact and healthy. They're so essential for the health of our skin. They help to seal in moisture and keep out impurities. 🌟 Niacinamide has many benefits. It helps with acne, inflammation and redness. It is also known to reduce pore size, and smooth out skin. It helps strengthen the skin barrier and calm the skin as well. Just about everything! My Experience 🐳 This serum instantly calmed my skin and made it so smooth. It was nice to start using an effective & exfoliating skincare product that DOESN'T irritate my skin. This is also very hydrating and softening for my skin, so I never feel tight or dry! And its only $20! I love not spending $60 on an effective serum! Feel free to leave a comment or ask any questions below 💞

Sunscreen with ZERO smell!!
Sunscreen with ZERO smell!!
I’ve been pretty clear about how much I love sunscreen, but they almost always have a that sunscreeny smell and greasy residue - not this Krave - The Beet Shield ✅ Most important: SPF 50++++ and blue light protection plus no white cast and no pilling. Wears beautifully & glowy under makeup ✨ Long story short I’m in love. My go to makeup look is to not wear any because I work full time + am a full time grad student and work roughly 40 hours a week. This means I have zero time but also have my face shoved in a computer screen, my phone, etc almost all day every day. This baby is loaded with antioxidants & SPF + blue light protection! Even on days where I’m cooped up inside, I know this product is protecting my skin from free radicals & from blue light aging. The formula is dreamy IMO because it’s thick enough that you feel it but it once it’s rubbed in, it completely disappears and absorbs into you skin to leave a beautiful glow 🤩 #CherieCreator #wearsunscreen

I’m Obsessed with Face Mists (you should be too)
I’m Obsessed with Face Mists (you should be too)
Anyone who knows me knows that I am a mist fanatic. Pillow mists, hair mists, toning mists, setting mists...you name it, I love it. I have sensitive, normal/sometimes dry skin that is very reactive so basically I need to treat it like a Queen or it loses it’s sh*t. I feel like face mists work so well for me because they add a dose of instant hydration and they also soothe my reactive skin (they often smell really nice too). In this video, I showed a few of the mists I have in rotation...if you’re interested to know how I use them and which ones are my favourites, keep reading! •CAUDALIE - CAUDALIE Beauty Elixir - when I first tried this I hated it. I used it on bare skin and it burned my skin and made it feel tight and dry. One of my beauty friends suggested trying it over makeup as more of a setting spray and that’s when I fell in love with it. It works so well to set my makeup and blend everything together seamlessly. Now, the fact that it burned my bare skin is probably not a good thing...but we’ll talk about that another time🥴 • Awake - 10+ Super Juice Refreshing Mist - this one is not one of my favourites but I try to use it sometimes to use it up. It smells really nice and fruity and refreshing, but it just doesn’t seem to do much for my skin. • BLUME - Stargirl Face Mist - this one is one of my favourites - it feels great on bare skin! Super soothing and hydrating and sooo refreshing, definitely one I’d recommend. • COVER FX - Crystal-Infused Elixir Mist Rose Quartz + Defense - this one is new to my collection so I don’t have a full opinion yet, it feels nice on the skin and I’ve mostly used it over makeup so far (I don’t really know why). • cocokind - Glow Essence - this one is amaaaazing!! I use it every night after I wash my face and before I apply the rest of my skincare and I swear it’s made such a difference for me. It makes my skin feel hydrated and calm and I love the way it smells. I love using mists as part of my skincare routine, to refresh my skin throughout the day, or to set my makeup. Sometimes I’ll even spray my Caudalie Elixir on my pillow before I go to sleep because I just love the calming scent it has. Are you as obsessed with mists as me or are you normal?😅 #CheriePartner

Time to say goodbye 👋🏼
Time to say goodbye 👋🏼
For the past like 3 years the COOLA - Classic Face Sunscreen Moisturizer SPF 50 has been my go to sun screen!! There hasn’t been one day I haven’t put this on my face. I’m a skin care junkie but my skin is also sensitive so even though I enjoy trying new products I’m so happy with the sunscreen I just never thought about switching it out. But thanks to all the other skin care lovers on Cherie I think I’m ready to give this a break and try something new😬 I’m hoping to find a new love and not suffer to many break outs along the way hahah. If you’re looking to try a new sunscreen I definitely recommend this one! I always get fragrance free but it also comes in different scents, this sinks into the skin pretty quickly, and sits under makeup very well. On the days I don’t wear makeup which tbh is most I do notice that after a couple hrs of wear it makes me a little greasy but nothing a blotting sheet can’t fix.
