indie brand alert! & a facial oil I recommend

This review has been a very long time coming. I’ve been using this mini for a considerable amount of time now, and I’ve shot content for it like four times, and ended up being unhappy with most of the shots. I currently have sensitive, combo skin with rosacea! WILD MAGIC BEAUTY - MOON LIGHT - Goji Berry + Sea Buckthorn Facial Oil
Wild Magic Beauty is a small business/indie brand inspired by ancient Eastern wisdom. Moon Light was formulated with “one key idea in mind: to provide your skin the nutrients it needs for a soft dreamy glow.” Key Ingredients: nourishing superfruit seed oils including pomegranate, blueberry, raspberry, tamanu, green tea, sea buckthorn, and goji Berry & delivers antioxidants, vitamins, and fatty acids. The oils are non-comedogenic! It smells kind of fruity and floral, but not overwhelming! The texture is a lightweight oil that feels luxurious and works great at sealing in moisture. I think that Moonlight is my favorite product from this brand because it works so well for my skin type. It’s so hydrating, but not so heavy that I’m left looking like an oil slick (except at night, but that’s my business). A full size is $48, which is more affordable than most high end oils these days. Do I think it’s worth $48? No, not really. It takes a lot for me to justify anything over $30, but if money is not an issue, this oil is wonderful! #cheriecreator

Skincare swaps for Summer to Winter ☀️➡️❄️
Unless you live in a neutral weather area year-round, it’s important to adjust your skincare routine based on the weather outside—temperature, humidity, and other factors should play into your routines. For my sensitive, red, acne-prone combination skin, this is how I do it! I keep some of my routine the same, but here are some highlighted products that only show up in the summer or winter for me: SUMMER HIGHLIGHTS ☀️ Sunday Riley UFO Oil: SUNDAY RILEY - U.F.O. Acne Treatment Face Oil don’t ask me why this works wonders in the summer but doesn’t in the winter! I have been in this cycle since 2018, and it just works for me best in the summer. I think it’s because this is a dry oil formula so it’s not really as moisturizing as your skin needs in the winter. First Aid Beauty Face Moisturizer: FIRST AID BEAUTY - Ultra Repair Face Moisturizer NOTE THAT THIS IS NOT THE ULTRA REPAIR CREAM!! This is the facial moisturizer version that comes in pump packaging. It’s a much more lightweight formula, almost gel-like, making it great for the summertime when you’re sweating more and your face is hit with more humidity. This doesn’t give me enough moisture in the winter. Summer Fridays Jet Lag Mask: SUMMER FRIDAYS - Jet Lag Mask Hear me out. I’ve said this time and time again. This is NOT a hydrating mask. The top ingredient behind water is a natural exfoliant (chestnut seed extract) so really it’s a polishing mask. In the summer I wear it overnight over another cream or oil instead of as a wash off mask. I’ve noticed that it reduces my redness and helps my breakouts clear faster. Since this doesn’t hydrate me, I use it more often in the summer. WINTER HIGHLIGHTS ❄️ Paula’s Choice Azelaic Acid Booster: PAULA'S CHOICE - 10% Azelaic Acid Booster just want to say this up front—even though I like this product, I don’t condone the past racist actions of the brand owner and will not be purchasing from them moving forward. This is a product I already had in my possession. That being said, if you have rosacea, this will be your best friend. It’s all about calming redness and fighting acne without exfoliating—perfect for winter. I will use this on top of serums but under heavy creams. Don’t use this with probiotics, as this is anti-bacterial, so it may create a reaction in your skin. Lactic Acid Serums: The Ordinary - Lactic Acid 5% + HA SUNDAY RILEY - Good Genes All in One Lactic Acid Treatment I’ve linked both of these products since they both work for me but one is drastically lower in price. Lactic acid is a gentle AHA that can help fight acne. I like both of these serums, and use them at night. Wild Magic Beauty Oil: WILD MAGIC BEAUTY - MOON LIGHT - Goji Berry + Sea Buckthorn Facial Oil this is my go-to night oil in the winter. So moisturizing and luxurious! #CheriePartner

How to get a PERFECT makeup base
Hey y’all!! I hope you’re having a great week so far. I have to be honest...I haven’t been doing my makeup much during quarantine which has been a bummer because it’s so FUN! Over the years I’ve gone through phases of full coverage makeup, light coverage makeup, no makeup, cream/powder...you know the drill. Right now my skin type is combination dry with acne and rosacea. My skin tone is very fair and pink compared to the rest of my body. Due to my conditions, I try to create a dewy base but still enough coverage to balance out my red spots without having super full coverage matte makeup that clings to my dry spots. So I decided to challenge myself to use a SUPER full coverage matte foundation to see if I could make it look skin-like...and long lasting...challenge accepted!! Here are the steps I took and the products I used to achieve this look: 1. EXFOLIATE. I usually am not a huge fan of physically exfoliation but if I plan on wearing makeup I usually use a gentle exfoliating cleanser. Today I used the Microfoliant from Dermalogica dermalogica - Daily Superfoliant which is a charcoal-like powder which, when mixed with water, turns into a super gentle paste to slough off dry, dead skin. 2. HYDRATE. I used a hydrating toner, hydrating serum, and a facial oil underneath, as well as a hydrating makeup primer. I have not been using the hydrating serum long enough to give you a rating but I really like the other products! Other than that I am no longer supporting Milk Makeup due to their internal racism in their corporate setting. INDIE LEE - CoQ-10 Toner WILD MAGIC BEAUTY - MOON LIGHT - Goji Berry + Sea Buckthorn Facial Oil Allies of Skin - Triple Hyaluronic Antioxidant Hydration SerumMilk MAKEUP - Hydro Grip Primer 3. CONCEALER FIRST. Yup. I said it. I like using my concealer underneath my foundation and letting it sit for 5-10 minutes...I learned this trick from Jackie Aina on YouTube and it has saved my looks! I conceal my red areas, under eyes, and my breakouts pre-foundation. The concealer I used today is the URBAN DECAY - All Nighter Waterproof Full-Coverage Concealer in the shade fair neutral. It’s SO DRYING. But it stays in place! 4. FOUNDATION. Ok. I used the same line’s foundation URBAN DECAY - All Nighter Liquid Foundation in the shade 1.5. I would rate this lower because it’s a little too drying but I mixed in a drop of the Wild Magic Beauty facial oil and MY GOD! It transformed and wore like a whole other foundation. 5. PRO TIP! Before moving on to the rest of your face, use a setting spray on your base. Let it dry completely!! This will make your makeup appear more skin-like and wear longer. 6. FINISH YOUR FACE. Ta-Da! Now you have a full face that will last all night and doesn’t crack or crease. #CheriePartner

Old vs. New: Klei Beauty’s Nourish Facial Oil
Old vs. New: Klei Beauty’s Nourish Facial Oil
I loooove a good facial oil. But as someone with acne prone skin, I have to be careful when introducing a new one into my routine because of how easily they can clog my pores. At first, I was afraid of how my skin would react to Klei Beauty’s Nourish Face Oil because of how thick it was but the combination of its 100% natural skin-healthy ingredients and texture are actually exactly what my skin needs. This face oil’s main ingredients are Hazelnut, Avocado, Meadowfoam, and Rosehip Oil, which work together to hydrate and brighten the skin. It also features a blend of Argan, Cranberry, Carrot, and Sesame Oil to protect and tighten the skin, while Borage, Squalane, and Seabuckthorn nourish and regenerate. I started using the facial oil in September and just repurchased my second bottle. When I first started using the Nourish Facial Oil, I was only using it at night to repair any damage and give it a boost of hydration while I slept. But now that we’re in the winter months, I’ve been using it in the mornings as well for more hydration and I’ve found that it wears so nicely under makeup. Since it’s on the thicker side, I recommend using it sparingly to prevent that slick, greasy look – especially if you’re worried about it potentially clogging your pores. In addition to keeping my skin perfectly moisturized, I’ve found that this facial oil has also helped improve the plumpness of my skin and is making a difference in terms of redness/evenness! I think I’ve found a forever friend in Klei Beauty. klei - Nourishing Treatment Oil

Blunt Skincare Seed Hydrating Face Oil
Blunt Skincare Seed Hydrating Face Oil
Hey gals Cannabis Sativa/CBD oils New girl on my block !!! I’m so happy I got to snatch this @blunt.skincare product on the @supergreatapp. This is the Blunt Seed Hydrating Face Oil, the 3 main ingredients are Cannabis Sativa, Sacha Inchi & Blackberry. ***This face oil doesn’t not contain CBD/THC but the other two oils in their oil line do. • I apply 3 drops on my hand, warm it up and tap it on my face. At the moment my skin is feeling super dehydrated so I add another drop or two if I still feel like I need a bit more. I also mix this with a night cream for more moisture. • • Two weeks ago my skin was at its worst, irritated,& breaking out. With time I started to pay attention to my skin so when my skin is acting up I know is super dehydrated and is screaming for moisture. Even though I have combo I skin I’m more on the dehydrated side.SoI started doing sheet masks 3x a week after doing a clay mask to remove all the dirt and pollution in my skin. I’d applied my serums and then this Seed hydrating oil, either solo or mixed with a ceramide cream. My skin has being doing so much better, brighter,no breakouts and very hydrated. Seriously obsessed with this Blunt Oil. BLUNT - SEED Hydrating Face Oil

Botanics: Friend or Foe?
Botanics: Friend or Foe?
Botanics oils is predominantly a plant derived product made mostly from hibiscus, rosehip and lavender plants. I’m sure that this product probably works on some of you, but this product ruined my skin when I tried it. Tired it on 2 separate days this week and last week and it caused little bumps to rise on my face and it made my face itch. Goes to show me that Botanics oils is my Foe and definitely not a friend. My sensitive and combination skin does not go well with these products so plant based oil products with Rosehip, Lavender and Hibiscus, or probably any plant causes a reaction. If anyone uses these or used these oils, let me know how your experience went 🙃 BOTANICS - All Bright Bi-Phase Oil BOTANICS - 100% Organic Nourishing Facial Oil BOTANICS - Organic Restoring Night Oil

BIOSSANCE - Squalane + Tea Tree Balancing Oil This facial oil is targeted for all skin types who have concerns with blemishes, pores, and redness. It is formulated with tea tree oil, squalane, and rosemary to purify, calm, lock in moisture, and prevent oxidation. I found this oil to be very lightweight and when used on active blemishes, it helped to reduce redness and size. I didn’t see any difference in pore size. It has a very earthy and fresh smell which I loved. I am happy I was able to try a sample of this, because while I liked it, I don’t think I would spend $49 on it. I only use this at night and only when I felt like I needed it for an active blemish or redness. However, I found it mostly effective for what it claims, so if you are willing to spend the money, I would give it a try!

Happy Monday!! Today I would like to talk about this oil, I am a big fan of face oils/serums and this oil is truly a favorite. I use this daily as my skincare routine. I have combination /acne prone skin but this stuff has not caused any breakouts. The bottle is a bit pricey but honestly it will last you for months. I will definitely continue to buy this oil, it’s made a huge difference on my dry winter skin. I highly recommend it 🌿 . . . . . . •Increases skin radiance by improving tone and texture. •Boosts skin firmness and suppleness. •Instantly hydrates and protects skin from moisture loss.

COVID Mask Tips & Tricks for Dry Skin
COVID Mask Tips & Tricks for Dry Skin
Wondering why your skin is super dry from wearing the daily mask outside during our global pandemic? Are you experiencing Micro tears on your face from your mask rubbing on your face? Well, here’s a solution to help you manage that and keep your face hydrated while you wear a mask. Make sure that your wearing your daily favorites sunblock. Make sure it’s thick enough for your skin type to ensure not getting break outs. Also, you can get a result driven face oil that will help keep your skin Barrier protected from anything hard rubbing against your skin such as the daily mask. Some heavy creams are not for me cuz their too occlusive from being to “Pore” blocking. That will cloth pores and fissile acne. Be sure you understand your skin type to make sure your skin barrier can hold enough moisture without being greasy or too oily. You may have heard me talk about this luminous face oil before, however I love it! It just enough of hydration for my skin. And I’m sure yours also. The ingredients makes all the difference for better product penatration for the best results. Glow RX skincare - Luminous face oil[products]#[FiveStars]
