🧸🤳FOLLOW ME ON INSTA I’ll be posting 🔜 RIP CHERIE🪦💔💔 🪞🦭$kin, hair & body care enthusiast. Research baby🍼☕️ 🔸chronic illness warrior🐻❄️💕
Let’s talk about OTHER social media for a second
I made a meme🥱 I don’t wanna go anywhere else!💔🪦😭 Im sincerely hoping that this app is absorbed or merges with another. Cherie was created by the former GM of TikTok. Did you know it was actually musical.ly (the lip syncing app) before it became TikTok. Users from the old app were just folded in & got to keep all their content. This is wishful thinking... we should all be saving our work by “editing” the post, thus having access to the text, then copy & paste it elsewhere. I feel like I can’t keep up or meet the expectations of other apps. You know the expectations I mean... Not to mention the unnecessary hate, bullying & bullshit. 💎Here’s a bit about my previous experiences on socials & why Cherie was this diamond in the rough- where I felt safe & supported at all times. Keep in mind, I’m 33. I’ve seen it all come into sphere & how it’s changed the collective vibe of EVERYTHING. Facebook: I moved to Brooklyn when I was 18 (‘06) & my college roommate convinced me to join, but all my friends back home weren’t on it, so it was all these college kids I didn’t know & honestly didn’t relate to all that much. It led my Fb to be the weirdest, idgaf “conceptual” page. About 18 months later, I had my account shut down, when a jealous ex hacked it & posted nude photos of me (not just on fb) Needless to say, it was devastating & I became this like anti-online-presence type of person by 2008. I kind of reveled in the anonymity... it was an era of college parties where guys would ask your homie “what’s her Facebook” to casually stalk you instead of just ask for your number. I actually loved this “like, you can’t find me that way, you have to actually talk to me rn in person” kinda thing I had created. I didn’t even have text messaging, back when you could chose to not pay for it lol. Guys had to actually ask for my number, then literally call me & im sure it was terrifying, sorry boys! I was all about the mystery. YouTube: actually had a viral video in 2007, like half million views practically overnight, but led to so much hate & racism toward my male friend. All we did was dance to a Gucci mane song. Insta: Ran fashion history account, did countless hours of research, but I swear if I didn’t post for a day, I would lose followers. I would dig so deep to find out who designed costumes, styled photo shoots etc.. literally giving as much credit & details as I could, only to have pages with many thousand followers steal my work & add caption-“mood” or something. But I got recognition from designers & costumers that I truly admire, often times, them thanking me for actually giving them credit for their work. On my personal, i went private after racism & hate (& actual death threats) cuz I posted about a white woman calling the police on a black child for selling water on a hot day. The video was from my hometown, I didn’t film it, but it went viral from my page... & i couldn’t help but argue with white supremacists. People suck. I liked it here...
Me doing videos lol 🧴🧸
Thank you so much to@cherie& Heraux for this amazing umm *cough $250 *cough serum!! Whaaat?! I wish I had more time on the app to actually review it for you guys. It came wrapped in tons of bubble wrap, but the poor little glass bottle wasn’t very secure inside its little box. Unfortunately the seal is completely broken & the top is broken... it just keeps spinning & I don’t understand. Heraux - Heraux Molecular Anti-Inflammaging Serum Anyone else who won this know how to open it or make use of the pump?!?! Send help !!! Ps- this is why I don’t like doing videos, it’s just not fun for me with my disability & nerves. Kinda talking to Supergreat app lol... I have no idea where I’ll continue posting. UPDATE: I reached out to the brand Heraux, to see if I was just doing something wrong.. I explained that I won it as a prize, & within minutes & without question, they asked for my address to send me a new one. Wow! I’m impressed! I got it open, but they confirmed that my top/pump is broken, it’s not supposed to come out of the jar. Anyways... I’ll show texture soon!

RIP CHERIE 🍒🪦💔
So I actually cried. Not to be dramatic, but— Yea. I’m disabled so I don’t jump out of bed at an early hour... I usually stay up late & post on Cherie when my Internet works best🤪 💔So I quite literally woke up to the “We’ll miss you” notification & was all groggy & confused. For the last 6 months, this app has been my everything! I fell in love with it & with all of you! I could go on & on, but I know everyone is feeling the same way. I’m glad they’re at least leaving posting on for a week! 🍒so we can all try to stick together on other apps. I’m definitely feeling a bit deflated over this & it’s hard to start from scratch, but here’s my screen names for other stuff— I haven’t posted on these accounts but I will be getting to it once I find my groove. I basically ditched all other apps/social media after finding Cherie. Instagram: SelfieCareBear PrismPop: SelfieCareBear 🧸🤳 find me I’ll follow u💕 I want to thank everyone &@cheriefor a really awesome 6 months I had. I wish I had found this app sooner, & I’m soooo heartbroken it has to end... I can’t believe I had over 2k followers!!! I never thought that would even be possible! Thank you beyond words to everyone. The confidence y’all have given me is the best gift I could ask for. I really didn’t think anyone would care. I really enjoyed the writing & photography, things I had sort of dropped from my life after becoming disabled.... so while I am so sad, I’m truly grateful for this experience. I learned a lot more about myself & my skin... & I feel I made great improvements in both aspects-🪞🦭 I appreciate all of you so much! Forever luv -nay
☁️🌙 Night Body Serum by Moroccanoil 💤
🎂 I got this mini as part of my Sephora bday gift. I’m already familiar with the other 2 (hair) products in the set, but I chose the Moroccanoil gift set just so I could finally try this! About the ingredients: Free of Mineral oil & Parabens. 💻🐇I had to do a little digging to find out if Moroccanoil is cruelty-free. I found that none of Moroccanoil’s ingredients, formulations or finished products are tested on animals, anywhere in the world... but I’m not sure why they don’t really express that on their site or packaging? It does have fragrance, but it’s the most subtle of any Moroccanoil product I’ve ever tried. My friend used to own a hair salon & carried exclusively Moroccanoil products, so I’ve tried like everything. I can’t say it smells like nothing, but honestly has very very little scent. 🤎Of course this contains Argan oil, the star ingredient of Moroccanoil products. Argan oil is extremely nourishing, rich in Vitamin E, essential fatty acids & Antioxidants! One of my favorite oils for hair/body care. Their Argan oil is cultivated in Morocco🇲🇦 & their products are made in Israel🇮🇱 🇯🇵It also has Tsubaki oil (Japanese Camellia) to deliver antioxidants & an abundance of minerals such as Zinc, Calcium, Manganese & Magnesium. It’s used to help issues like acne & Psoriasis, it’s an excellent moisturizer, aids firmness & can even boost the effectiveness of your sunscreen. 🍃Holy Basil extract helps protect skin from environmental stressors & can reduce inflammation. It can also help clear acne & fade hyperpigmentation. 💥For fading hyperpigmentation & radiance, the formula also includes Tetrahexyldecyl Ascorbate. Also known as Vitamin C Ester, a more stable, oil-soluble form of Vitamin C. MOROCCANOIL - Night Body Serum $62/10.2 oz 😴This body serum claims to smooth, firm & intensely nourish your skin while you sleep. I absolutely love the formula! The texture is super silky. It’s much thicker than a serum for your face & also thicker than most body oils, so I find it really easy to control. I was actually really surprised I only used half this little jar & my body was super moisturized & dewy. Math: A full size would last 60 uses ☀️I don’t see why you couldn’t use this during the day... After using post night-shower, my skin was extremely soft & still felt moisturized in the morning. It’s very nourishing, but it’s still really lightweight. I think it would be wonderful during Spring/Summer daytime because it leaves your skin with a nice healthy, kinda glossy glow. I enjoyed the way this product made my skin feel so much! I liked how easy it was to maneuver & apply, & of course how hydrating/moisturizing it was. However I was personally super disappointed that it didn’t smell like much at all. Their signature fragrance is a sweet floral & warm amber concoction that I’m love with-this BARELY smells like that! I thought it could just be the mini, but I read many reviews that said it was extremely subtle.

The girl loves minis! 🐊🎀 ☕️Moringa Oil Scrub
True Moringa is a black owned brand specializing in vegan/cruelty-free skincare with cold-pressed Moringa oil from Ghana. 🚀🪐By 2012, founder Kwami Williams had already graduated MIT with a degree in Aerospace Engineering & even started a career at NASA! But one of his mentors encouraged him to return to his native Ghana. Kwami moved to the US when he was 8 years old & engaged in humanitarian & environmental work when he returned. 🇬🇭While in Ghana, Kwami met Emily Cunningham in early 2013. She studied Development Economics at Harvard, but traveled to Ghana after being frustrated by the disconnect between the information in her textbooks & realities in the developing world. Together they started True Moringa to help local farmers & create affordable products with this amazing & beneficial oil. True Moringa works directly with a network of 5,000 smallholder farmers throughout Ghana & have planted over 2 million Moringa trees. Everything is sustainably produced with fair wages. 🌳Moringa oil is made by cold-pressing only the seeds of the tree. But the farmers also cultivate Moringa leaves for their immense nutritional benefits. Gram for gram, the leaves contain more iron than spinach, more protein than yogurt & more calcium than milk. Moringa is rich in Zeatin, which is a Cytokinin; a class of plant growth substances aka Phytohormones that promote cell division & growth. Moringa is packed with fatty acids & antioxidants to combat free radicals that cause premature aging. 🌍The rate of absorption/assimilation of carbon dioxide by Moringa is 20x higher than any other tree! 🌳A really interesting study on Moringa & global warming revealed that 1 person emits 320kg of CO2 per year, & it takes 23 Japanese Cedar trees 50 years to absorb this amount of CO2; It takes 2 Moringa trees 2 years to absorb this amount. 1 family car emits 2300kg of CO2 per year, it takes 160 Japanese Cedar trees 50 years to absorb this amount of CO2, but it takes 10 Moringa trees 2 years etc. (Muriel, 2010) #True Moringa - Rejuvenating Body Polish[products]#[ThreeStars] on sale for $2/1 oz at PetitVour.com Reg. $9/1 oz OR $34/4 oz The ingredients: 1.✨Sugar: a natural humectant (hydrator) & exfoliant 2.☕️Fresh Nicaraguan Coffee beans from Vega Coffee (🇳🇮 farmer-roasted coffee co.) are obviously rich in caffeine to firm & tighten skin, but also an exfoliant to scrub off dead skin cells & encourage the healthy production of new cells. 3.🌳Moringa oil: A nourishing oil that claims to outperform Argan, Jojoba & Shea. 4.🌶spicy essential oil blend. My experience: I wanna try other products from them, like their pure Moringa oil, which has a fragrance-free option. The scent? INTENSE! Essential oils aren’t really my thing. Kinda gave me old-coffee-grounds flashback to working coffee shops. It was a bit too scratchy for me, but I was so impressed by how dewy & moisturized it left my skin! So, personally hated the scent, but it’s so nourishing! No moisturizer needed!
❄️Laneige Essential Power Toner for dry skin❄️
🥛As I was finishing off my Laneige Cream Skin, I already regretted buying one this instead. It’s not terrible, I just realized immediately that I like their Cream Skin Toner so0oO0o much better! 🧊This slightly translucent blue bottle is gorgeous though! It’s plastic, but very sturdy & well made. LANEIGE - Essential Power Skin Toner for Normal to Dry Skin $28/6.7 oz 🔹Though this is a much better deal per oz than Cream Skin, it does contain Alcohol (3rd ingredient) & fragrance (last ingredient) while ‘Laneige Cream Skin’ is alcohol & fragrance free. 🌀Overall this isn’t a horrible toner for dry skin, but it’s not a good choice for sensitive skin. It’s heavily fragranced. 💦I also don’t like the slightly gelatinous, yet somehow very watery texture. It feels a little slimey. Though it doesn’t dry out my skin or anything, I didn’t like the slightly sticky feeling afterwards. The container does make it really easy to dispense without a mess, which I do appreciate. The scent is a sort of floral/clean refreshing smell, but you do get notes of alcohol. I’m not super sensitive to fragrance, but I don’t like alcohol smell😕 ❄️The formula does have a lot of good hydrating ingredients like Prickly Pear extract, Panthenol (provitamin B5), Amino acids, Vitamin-rich Silver Birch & Quinoa extracts. It’s also enriched with moisture enhancing minerals Zinc, Manganese, Magnesium, Sodium, Calcium & Potassium which are ionized & stabilized in water, designed to absorb quicker into skin. ◻️I tried it with & without a cotton pad for application experimentation, but wasn’t feelin it that much either way. I’ll definitely finish it, but since I had to reorder cream skin, I’ll probably start alternating. I also don’t use a toner 2x a day or necessarily every day. Kinda depends on how my skin feels. 🤷🏻♀️Toners are definitely a debated topic. I won’t be the one to tell you need one at all. I’ve just been using them in my skincare routine foreverr & I enjoy that addition to my routine. I like my skin to feel balanced & refreshed after cleansing... But what I will say is: a toner is not meant to further clean your skin or remove last bits of makeup after cleansing. If your cotton pad shows grime or makeup, it means your cleansing routine (even if you’re double-cleansing) may not be effective enough. Experiment with different methods. Everyone’s needs will be different. 💄I know some people like to use a Micellar water after cleansing if they think they haven’t removed all their makeup. ☁️So this product was definitely not a favorite as far as texture & feel. There are way better toners out there... I think I really couldn’t help but compare it to LANEIGE - Cream Skin Toner & Moisturizer ($33/5 oz) but that was such a winner for me & a unique product. Check out my previous review & aLANEIGE - Cream Skin Mistreview is coming 🔜 Are toners a part of your routine? What’s your current fav? #CherieCreator 🍒🧊

Tip of how I use my Body Lava from Fenty Beauty
When Rihanna released her new body illuminator from Fenty Beauty I was so excited to purchase. My first impression when applying to my skin it had a very sticky residue. I felt I couldn't wear anything loose, I would have wear something very tight and fitting to my body or my hair would have to be up because my hair will stick on. So I had an idea to mix one of my favorite lotion to my body lava and results were great. I get less stickiness onto my skin and also have this beautiful crystallizing on my skin. Overall I love this product but would love it more if it was less sticky to the body.

Sk+N/MUSE can do no wrong 🔥
I absolutely had to pick up a few things after a few skinsta friends posted about this incredible brand. SK+N/MUSE creates body products aimed to prioritize the needs of Black women and elevate their beauty experience. I am not Black (you don’t have to be) but I wanted to try these beautiful products out and give you my thoughts. 90% of their resources are obtained from small businesses. For example, their Shea is sourced from Nigeria! They are eco-friendly and have a refill policy where they refill your returned, empty jar with any product at a 10% discounted rate (applies to LA residents and surrounding area) I picked up their Body Oil and Citrus Body Butter Body Oil: sold in 100 ml or 60 ml. I purchased the 60 ml to start off. First off, the packaging is so luxurious and you can tell just how much time and energy went into making it perfect. The ingredients are just as amazing with Egyptian Honey, Moroccan Oil, Rosehip Oil and Vitamin E. It’s so silky and sultry and you can tell that just from looking at the consistency. Citrus Body Butter: smells SO GOOD. There are so many scents to choose from. I picked up the 2 oz container but they also sell a 9 oz. Again, it’s so luxurious and a little goes a long way. I found that using a too much left a greasy residue, but a tiny scoop was the perfect amount for soft, glowing skin. Ingredients are Shea, Cocoa, Coconut, Rose-hip, Avocado, and orange.

An Eye Cream That Actually Does Something!
I never thought I needed an extra product for under my eyes when I could just use a serum or moisturizer I already had. I’ve tried countless eye creams, ranging from drugstore to high-end to professional, but never stuck with any because I didn’t see a difference. That is until I started using the Murad Renewing Eye Cream! It. Blew. My. Mind. I received it in an Ipsy box. For that, I am grateful because it retails for a whopping $82. I’ve used other peptide eye creams in the past, but none of them made any tangible differences to my dark circles or loss of volume. The Murad, however, gave me actual results in only four days! My dark circles are noticeably less dark, and what really shocked me is how much more plump the skin under my eyes is. The eye cream is fragrance-free and has a soft, luxurious texture. I LOVE putting it on because it feels so silky and indisputably softens and smooths my under eyes right after applying it. It’s extremely hydrating, firming, brightening, and claims to be anti-aging as well. I have undoubtedly seen an improvement in my under eye area’s overall youthfulness, and am incredibly impressed. I am no longer skeptical of eye creams! It took a lot of wasted product and money to stumble on this gem of an eye cream, which was lucky in and of itself since I had never tried anything from Murad before this. This eye cream has me wondering what else Murad has that could be as great as this product. As for the price, it makes me cringe internally to think about paying the full $82, but I’ve concluded that this eye cream is unmatched and SO WORTH IT! Luckily, a little goes a very long way, and you get .5 oz. I seriously love this eye cream and couldn’t recommend it more!
