🥛🌹Milk & Cookies🎅🏽🍪Voluspa Milk Rose candle
🎄Late Christmas post, very late lol. But whatever, when I was getting my phone sent in to be unlocked, I took some pics on my bfs phone for Cherie stuff, but I hate the quality of certain older iPhones, so I kinda threw all my Christmas-themed posts out the window 😭🪟I had lot😭🎄🎅🏽 This candle is divine! One of my new favorites from Voluspa. They’re so much more affordable & more luxurious than a lot of other “luxury” candles. #Voluspa - Milk Rose Large Jar Candle[products]#[FiveStars] 🥛🌹$32/18 oz This scent is available in several different sizes in glass & tins, larger & smaller than this one. I personally love the options with lids, but they have so many styles! All of the decorative jars are really high quality & just so beautiful. Every scent has a different color. Voluspa’s site describes this candle as “notes of Bulgarian Rose, Marshmallow Milk & White Copali Amber. It’s so warm, sweet & inviting! I absolutely love this scent. I definitely smell all of those notes. The florals are nice, light & milky, while the amber gives it a lovely well rounded warmth.🕯 They have several rose scents to check out, I’ve tried a couple, but I would definitely order this one again! All Voluspa candles are made in California, from a clean burning Coconut wax, with 100% Cotton wicks. Perfection. I’ve been buying Voluspa candies for years & they have yet to disappoint me! They’re also: Cruelty free & Free of Phthalates, Parabens or Sulfates! 💝🕯I highly recommend this candle company!
☁️📦 It’s a good day in nay.nay land! 📦☁️
📦📦Two boxes arrived today! Always exciting not gonna lie. Maybe that says something about how fast paced my lifestyle is lol. ♿️When I first became disabled, getting a Sephora package could change my whole day. I used to very rarely shop online prior to mobility issues, but it’s definitely a whole new fun thing in quarantine where I’m seriously like never leaving my house. Even if Sephoras are open, I’m not going out shopping. 🛍vs💻 Even though this can be opposite case for most people, I found I bought more frivolous stuff I didn’t need when I shopped in-store compared to online. At Sephora I would get distracted by a million shiny things & my bf would laugh when I said I just had 3 specific things I knew I needed to get.. bla bla Online I can do a lot of research, read tons of reviews & attempt to make an educated decision, though I do miss being able to feel out textures in store, it’s not the time anymore. I got a Sephora package & a package from haircare/bodycare brand Moroccanoil. I’ve been using some of their products for a long time & decided to try a couple new things. Reviews coming soon! MOROCCANOIL - Body Polishing Scrub $39/10.2 oz Really excited to try this! I’ve been really into body scrubs with decadent oils. This has Argan, Avocado, Rice Bran, Safflower, Grape Seed & Sweet Almond oils. #Moroccanoil - Molding Cream[products]#[FiveStars] $28/10.2 oz 🪥This is actually what I use to do my baby hair & tame fly-always. I love this stuff & a tub lasts me foreverrrr. MOROCCANOIL - Moisture Repair Conditioner$24/10.2 oz Been craving that Moroccanoil signature scent. I hope this is as good as the reviews I read. LANEIGE - Essential Power Skin Toner for Normal to Dry Skin$28/6.7 oz I ran out of toner & decided to try something new. This bottle is so pretty! #JLo Beauty - THAT BLOCKBUSTER™ IN A NONSTOP WONDER CREAM[products]#$58/1.7 oz (this is just a deluxe sample from Sephora) Very excited to try this! I love the little tube, very James Bond. I’ve been using the serum & sunscreen for a week or 2. I’m dying to try the cleanser, but mostly because the tube looks so pretty, so this sorta satisfies me for now lol. SHISEIDO - SHISEIDO Eyelash Curler Pad $6/set of 2 So glad Sephora started carrying these! I used to have to go out of my way to a specific Shiseido counter in Macy’s to get them in the past. I’ve been using the Shiseido eyelash curler for like 8 years now, I own 2 & they’re both still working great & give my eyelashes the perfect curl. This specific curler is designed for eyes that aren’t deep set, & has a less pronounced curve than most western curlers. So you kinda can’t just use a random drugstore replacement pad. ➕I’ve heard these pads also are a great fit for the Shu Uemura curler as well! 📦Have you tried any of these goodies?
MOROCCANOIL-Body Polishing Scrub
This $4 hand soap smells just like Tatcha!
If you love Tatcha products, you’re probably down with their included fragrance that is, in my opinion, quite similar across many products. I haven’t tried every Tatcha product, but I’ve tried a lot of them. This is such a good find! So affordable, but smells so luxe! 💎This particular “bluebell” hand soap by Mrs. Meyer’s smells exactly like the slightly floral, herbaceous scent of Tatcha creams, the Rice Wash, The Deep Cleanse & more. #Mrs. Meyer’s Clean Day - Bluebell liquid hand soap[products]#[FiveStars] $3.99/12.5 oz So, in addition to smelling very luxury & expensive, like Tatcha, this is also a really good liquid hand soap. 🪴Mrs. Meyer’s site describes the scent as “garden fresh blue-violet & delicate floral fragrances” 🫒It’s not as drying as other hand soaps I’ve used the $2-$4 price range, thanks to olive oil & aloe. (Full ingredients in the slides) 🦋It only contains natural fragrances, & is free of Phthalates & Parabens. No dyes or artificial colors & it’s not tested on animals! No MEA or DEA. This brand is pretty easy to find, I know it’s often at Target!
TATCHA-The Deep Cleanse Exfoliating Cleanser
I know I’m late on this, but I’m doing one anyways🥰 1️⃣- PRODUCTS I tried a whole lot of new products last year. There’s definitely a few that really stood out to me that I had to repurchase! There’s only one on this list that I haven’t yet repurchased, simply cuz I haven’t run out! (Nars mask) 🐝Beauty of Joseon - Glow Serum : Propolis+Niacinamide & the 🐌Beauty of Joseon - Repair Serum : Ginseng+Snail Mucin These are $17 each, I can’t recommend them enough! They have done wonders for my skin, keeping it hydrated & clear, as well as fading dark spots. The formulas are really clean, concentrated, & free of fragrance & alcohol. 🇰🇷Sulwhasoo - First Care Activating Serum it’s expensive, but I fell in love. It’s really boosted the radiance in my skin & out of nowhere, this pre-serums prep serum somehow became a necessity in my routine & I freaked when I ran out & was awaiting my shipment. 👄ALGENIST - Genius Liquid Collagen Lip Did not make my lips fuller, but quickly became my favorite lip treatment. It’s basically an oil serum for the lips with algae extracts! It lasts a really long time even with multiple uses daily. 💕unpa.Cosmetics - Bubi Bubi Lip Ampoule new holy grail lip balm for me & it’s only $9, not a bad price at all because the tube contains over twice the amount of your average chapstick. Everyone has already heard me talk about this lip balm lol, but it’s so good! 🌊NARS - Aqua Gel Luminous Mask This one surprised me. Bought it on a whim from Nordstrom or something... It’s full of marine & botanical extracts, feels so refreshing & soothing, a little goes a long way & you get a generous amount for the price. A little gem for dry or irritated skin. 🍭TRULY - Unicorn CBD Whipped Body Butter This is the shit you need if you have really dry skin & want to smell like a “mature” cupcake!🧁 🌴SOL de Janeiro - Brazilian Touch Hand Sanitizer Spray My favorite hand sanitizer of 2020. Smells like the signature bum bum scent for a moment when you spray your hands before basically smelling like alcohol-but it’s hand sanitizer 2️⃣- TREND Definitely the no makeup, chillin at home look, but only because I participated in that quite heavily & it really helped my skin.🥰 3️⃣- MY BEST LOOK? Ha. Please see number 2... I could have probably found one if I didn’t lose all my photos, but pretty much if I brushed my hair it was a good day in 2020.😷 4️⃣- CREATORS I know I’m gonna leave someone out so please forgive me I’ll just name 5, but I love so many!!! Give these babes a follow: @bealizbeauty@VyshnaviKarra@halfkimchi@D.Bennett& @RedheadSkincare🌹 5️⃣- SOMETHING I LEARNED Skincare really is a never ending journey. I’ve learned to love my bare skin a lot more this last year!💀 Happy to be back from my unexpected & unwanted hiatus. #CherieCreator🍒

🍌Moisturizing Zinc Oxide lip balms under $5🩹
When I first tried Sun Bum mineral SPF 30 lip balm, I tried the black tube, called “Signature SPF 30 Sunscreen Lip Balm” I remember scanning the ingredients for both & they seemed identical, & I thought their only difference was a packaging thing & slight price increase... I finally found out the difference... unfortunately after purchasing 4 of them with my last Ulta order oops 😂 🍌😖BANANA FLAVOR/FRAGRANCE! 🍌sun bum - Mineral Sunscreen Lip Balm SPF 30 $3.99/.15 oz So, I was pretty disappointed to find out this was not the same product I’d already tried & loved. Though the ingredients are identical aside from what is listed as ‘flavor’ on ulta’s site ingredient list, & listed as ‘fragrance’ on the tube’s ingredient label... I found this formulation to be less creamy than the “signature” version. It sorta has this gritty texture in the balm, I’ve encountered this with balms with very natural ingredients, it’s not gritty once on lips, it just feels like that on the stick (see photos) 🍌Ok, the banana flavor/fragrance is just not for me. I certainly wouldn’t have purchased if I had known, but I’ll use them... eventually.. ugh I really don’t like them, just not worth the hassle of returning for 16 bucks. 🐈⬛THIS GUY HOWEVER... sun bum - Signature SPF 30 Sunscreen Lip Balm $4.99/.15 oz Is wonderful! It’s fragrance free & both use 8% reef safe Zinc Oxide as their sun protectant. Great creamy texture, & a natural almond oil/Shea butter type scent. I love that it’s super affordable & full of great stuff like Sweet Almond oil ( 1st ingredient ) , Jojoba seed oil, Shea butter, Argan oil & Vitamin E. It’s free of parabens, mineral oils & all kinds of nasty stuff, it’s also cruelty free & hypoallergenic! So unless banana flavor is your thing, I only recommend the one in the black tube🐈⬛ It’s available on Sun Bum’s site & maybe other places, but Ulta has the banana one only😞🍌

🦄🧼Unicorn CBD Whipped Body Polish is a FLOP!
While I’ve had some mixed experiences with Truly products, I absolutely fell in love the 🍭TRULY - Unicorn CBD Whipped Body Butter last year & I’ve repurchased it already. Not only is it a serious dry skin rescue cream, it smells like vanilla buttercream frosting in the best of ways. 🧁Sugar-y scented body care has been done so poorly in cheap products-I’m sure we’re all familiar with that nauseatingly sweet smell. The Unicorn CBD body butter is deliciously intoxicating & the scent & moisture really last! Though the effects from the CBD are minimal, it’s a thoroughly amazing body rescue cream that I’ve fully cemented in my post-shower body care rotation... So I was immediately sooo disappointed that the TRULY - Unicorn CBD Whipped Body Polish did not smell like their body butter of the same name AT ALL! It smells instead like bubblegum & slightly minty perhaps? Hard to put my finger on it. It’s a very overwhelming sweet smell that I don’t care for at all. 🧼The scent doesn’t stay on your skin, but leaves it smelling a pretty standard soap smell. Ok but here’s where I’m confused... I’ll admit I didn’t really check out the ingredients because I loved the body butter so much, & have been really into body scrubs lately, I just added it to my cart on Ulta. THIS IS NOT AN EXFOLIANT?! I’m really not sure why this is marketed as a “body polish” when it’s really just a body wash. I included the ingredients in the slides... 🥭it’s got some good hydrating/moisturizing ingredients very high on the list like glycerin, organic Shea butter, Mango seed butter & Vitamin E, but it left my skin feeling that tight stripping squeaky clean type way. So, literally not a body scrub or body polish at all, no physical or chemical exfoliants to speak of, just lots of botanical & fruit extracts that give us these rainbow colors naturally. 🍭The texture is really fluffy & creamy, so it doesn’t travel super well as you can tell from my photos, so while it wants to be very cute, it kinda arrives messy. I hate to be so harsh with my rating, but when I’m really trying to think of some saving qualities, I can’t. ➖I hate the smell, & feel kinda misled regarding what the scent would be, due to their body butter of the same name. ➖It’s certainly not a body polish & isn’t even a good body wash. ➖Really dried my skin out. ➖CBD pain relief effects are nonexistent, I knew it wouldn’t be anything special considering it’s a wash off treatment, but it’s worth mentioning, because they have CBD free versions as well. ➖ummm kinda pricey for a product this bad... $35/6 oz So a total flop for me. Oh well. Check out my review on the Unicorn CBD body butter, I highly recommend it!🦄🍭🧁💕 If you’re looking for an ACTUAL body scrub lol, my current favorites are HERBIVORE - Amethyst Body Scrub With Epsom Salt & SOL de Janeiro - Bum Bum Body Scrub

You HAVE to try Enzyme Exfoliation 🧖🏼♀️‼️
To truly understand why you need to try enzyme exfoliation let’s go over the differences between chemical and enzyme peels. Chemical Exfoliation: Acidic peels work very aggressively to remove the dead skin cells but they continue to do so until they are diluted or changed by increase in pH level (a neutralizing solution is applied) The best candidates for chemical exfoliation are those with uneven pigmentation, sun damage, wrinkles, fine lines, etc. Like any medical procedure, there will be recovery time especially if you receive a deep facial which can require weeks of recuperation Enzyme Exfoliation: Enzymes target specific proteins and basically “ eat” dead skin cells and the molecular glue that keeps them together In a more uniform, safe, and gentle way enzymes are able to purge the skin of impurities and unclog pores they are derived from fruits and plants, and your skin does not develop a tolerance to them. So, your skin will continue to receive benefits from enzymes as long as you use them! If the reasons aren’t OBVIOUS the biggest one is: Enzymes are much safer for you especially those with sensitive skin! Harsh chemicals eat away at healthy skin too, they do not discriminate on which cells to strip away but enzymes do! Enzymes will only eat away dead cells & proteins making sure to only leave radiant, healthy skin behind. Products like: The Ordinary - AHA 30% + BHA 2% Peeling Solutioncan be very aggressive & cause reverse effects for certain skin types. Risks like scarring & infection are possible if you are not careful. Also, you need to be sure you’re using it as advertised (how many times a week, how much product is needed, etc.) Research or consult your local dermatologist before any “at-home” treatments that you might regret! Products like: CLARISMA - Malibu Blush Exfoliating Scrub contain fruit enzymes, rich butters, and oils that work to revive the skin rather than strip it bare. This scrub is safe for 2-3x a week use & you don’t have to work about the risks because there aren’t really any! Try it out for yourself & watch the magic happen.

This hair growth serum works! Results are given!
For anyone who wants hair growth or having a hair loss this serum works!! ⬅️Swipe left to see results!! I have been losing a lot of hair due to my PCOS and I was looking for hair products that will enhance my hair growth and increase volume. And I never believed in any Hair growth serum to be working. I always thought it's a gimmick and probably won't grow my hair or make them voluminous. But, to my surprise this serum worked!! I found out about Vegamour after an extensive research and I read so many good reviews of this serum. So I went ahead and bought @vegamour Gro+ Advanced Hair Serum.VEGAMOUR - Gro+ Advanced Hair Serum They have their Gro hair serumVEGAMOUR - GRO Hair Serum which is original one but the one I bought has micro-encapsulated full-spectrum hemp oil! I read about it and thought it might work for my hair and it did! ❤️ Their Gro hair serum doesn't have full spectrum Hemp but I assume it works the same way. ✨What is it? -The Gro+ Advanced hair serum is reformulated in a way that they boosted the efficacy of this natural active even further by reducing the size of the hemp molecule from 2000 nanometers down to a mere 100-150 nanometers. -This much smaller hemp molecule is able to penetrate through to the upper layer of the dermis and reach hair follicles at the root level - It then allows actives like mung bean, red clover, curcumin and nicotiana benthamiana to circulate more deeply and effectively into problem areas, increasing the length of your hair's growth cycle while strengthening and thickening your hair. - Plus, the full-spectrum hemp oil works as an anti-inflammatory to soothe your scalp and follicles for maximum growth potential. They have some before and after pictures on their website which are quite promising. After me giving this a try I found that my hair at the front part where I experienced most thinning are growing to be full and voluminous. I saw difference in my hair line, this serum made my hair line quite even and the fine hair got a lot strong. The best part is that it's a plant based, 100% natural serum which works in a much effective way. It's a little bit pricey for the size we get but for what it does and it works I think I will repurchase it. Also, the results are very subtle initially and you might feel like it's not working but I would suggest you keep using it and after few weeks you'll notice a difference! ❤️✨ Do you like hair growth serums??

The Realest Thing I Never Wrote!!
I know I have been MIA but working at the hospital with COVID is kicking my butt and I'm exhausted and having a hard time finding the energy to post. But I saw this on IG by @drshashu and wanted to repost. Sometimes I need a little tough love real ness. I really believe in what she's stating and maybe it's cliche but I really want to try to eat clean in 2021 not only for my skin but for my health as well. I really have seen a difference in my skin tone side wearing sunscreen and really like PEACH & LILY - Lazy Day All-In-One Moisture Pads for those days I'm too tired to do my routine. But only on days with no makeup. What do you think is this too harsh??? Do you agree?? Comment below 👇🏽👇🏽👇🏽

Stretch marks, loose skin, or cellulite? This lotion is perfect! This lotion bāsd - Indulgent Crème Brûlée Body Lotion Is: ✨vegan ✨cruelty free ✨Organic ✨plant based Ingredients: ✨Caffeine ✨Sunflower Oil ✨Aloe Vera juice ✨Shea Butter ✨Coconut Oil This lotion is so thick and creamy, but doesn’t leave behind a heavy feeling. It smells like fruit loops but doesn’t stay heavily scented once applied and absorbed into skin. I literally use 3 full pumps and I can cover my entire body. I’ve been using this for a month every time I shower and I have seen amazing results. My legs, booty, thighs, and arms are so toned and soft I’m obsessed. I want to try the sandalwood scent next but this is my favorite body lotion that I don’t see myself getting rid of anytime soon! It’s $24.99, but I’ve barely put a dent in the bottle and I’ve had it for a month so it’s well worth the price! Do you have a favorite body lotion?
