Post exfoliation care

I have noticed I need extra calming after exfoliation. To do so I added BIODERMA - Hydrabio Brume
and Dr. Jart+ - Cicapair Tiger Grass Calming Mist
for extra hydration and soothing. I use PETER THOMAS ROTH - Water Drench Hyaluronic Acid Moisturizer
nightly now anyway. Hope now red and hot face 🥵

Product Mentioned
Tiger Grass Calming Mist 😐
Dr. Jart+ - Cicapair Tiger Grass Calming Mist Are mist really necessarily for the face? Nope! It’s a luxury step. Honestly this product didn’t do anything for my face. Absolutely nothing !!! The only thing that I like about this is the scent and the fine mist that spray onto the face. Other than that there is nothing too major. Apparently it’s suppose to help with redness and hydrate but there are no results. Dr.Jart never disappoints but with this mist it was mediocre. I come to realize that mists is a waste of money and does not work in my opinion.

Restarting my Acne Journey
Hi all! This is a little vulnerable for me: I usually never post or go outside without at least a bit of makeup. BUT! I’m restarting my efforts to fix my acne with a new routine, and I know there’s a lot of people who struggle with this. So, here’s my face! I’ve been using DIFFERIN - DIFFERIN Acne Treatment Gel for two weeks now and the purging is starting, so hopefully this is the worst it will get. I’m hoping with continued use to see some progress and to track it here! I have experienced stinging and some severe sensitivity while my skin gets used to it, but after two weeks the stinging is dying down. I’ve been dealing with hormonal/cystic acne for 10 years now, and believe it or not this is the best it’s been in years. I’ve slowly figured out what works for me, and wanted to share those tips. BUT, if I’ve learned anything in the past ten years about acne it’s that you need to listen to your own face: even if 1000% swear by something, if it doesn’t work for you, it doesn’t work for you. I have super oily skin, so if you have dry or combo, the listed routine will most likely not work. But for my oily pals, here’s the routine that’s improved my skin so far: Morning: FARMACY - Clean Bee Ultra Gentle Facial Cleanser I love how calming and non-stripping this cleanser is, but it still manages to reduce my oil FARMACY - Very Cherry Bright 15% Clean Vitamin C Serum with Acerola Cherry to target acne scarring Neutrogena - Hydro Boost Water Gel Sunscreen Lotion SPF 30 to protect from sun damage and irritation. I HAVE TO use a gel formula for moisturizers/sunscreens, or else I break out like crazy. That’s the number one issue I’ve figured out with my face. This one has a nice gel cream texture and is lightly moisturizing, but doesn’t turn me into an oil slick. Night: First cleanse/makeup removal with GOOD MOLECULES - Instant Cleansing Balm Second cleanse with FARMACY - Clean Bee Ultra Gentle Facial Cleanser Apply pea sized drop of DIFFERIN - DIFFERIN Acne Treatment Gel If my skin is feeling good and non-irritated, I use LANEIGE - Special Care Water Sleeping Mask for just a bit of moisture overnight If my skin is feeling irritated/tight, I’ll use GOOD MOLECULES - Squalane Oil for a heavier hit of moisture. If my skin is REALLY irritated, I follow with Dr. Jart+ - Cicapair Tiger Grass Calming Mist to try and calm my skin down So here we go! Hoping to see some improvements next month. Trying my best to be patient and consistent this time, which is the hardest but most important part. Thanks for reading, and good luck on your acne journey! #CherieCreator #acne #pimples #acnecare #cysticacne #hormonalacne

Summer face for teens! 🌞
Summer face for teens! 🌞
So I’ve never really had HARSH acne but what I have had is experience in skin care. My skin is VERY sensitive but I’m lucky enough where if my skin likes a product it will be clear as day but if it doesn’t it will hate me haha! But I’ve gotten a clear list that works well for my skin. What most people don’t know though is that my whole skin care is basically based off of me being on a budget! I’ve put time and dedication into looking for skincare that is affordable and that works well for my skin and I think I just about did it! So I really would love to share my summer skin care with you (as I have for many of my friends:)) My skin consists of combination skin. Like any other it’s oily in the summer and very dry in the winter. And I really like to keep my skin care to a couple things but enough where I know I’m doing my skin well. CeraVe - Renewing SA Cleanser For Normal Skin If you don’t know by now cleansers are extremely important to the skin! It takes off all the oils and extra stuff your skin doesn’t need. My favorite part of this cleaner is that it exfoliates your skin without any beads! Overall this is just great for day to night face washing. And what puts the cherry on top is that it’s recommended by dermatologists. L'ORÉAL - Futur-e Day Face Moisturizer After I use my exfoliating cleanser I use the L’Oréal SPF moisturizer. This stuff is great! You NEEEED a daily moisturizer with SPF in it. If you aren’t going outside it doesn’t matter, the lights in your house even have the rays that can do the same damage as the sun can to your skin! This is also a good moisturizer because if you’re like me and your skin gets very oily in the summer no matter what you do, this moisturizes well without making your face oily and is nice and light on your skin! The only reason I’d give it 4/5 stars is just because it still makes your skin a little oily but for this product you have to keep in mind a little goes a long way. Also a little tip for your face, to avoid wrinkles and such. When washing the face push up with your hands along your face. And remember to pat your face down DO NOT rub. And that’s it for my summer face! Very simple while being very affordable:) perfect for the summer.

Skincare products for allergy-prone skin-Round 1
Skincare products for allergy-prone skin-Round 1
I have combination-dry skin in spring and summer, and dry skin in fall and winter. I also have allergy-prone skin with bumps. Let me share some skin care products that I've used before. Facial Cleanser: Curél - Foaming Facial Wash It's a low pH face cleanser that protects the skin's moisture barrier while soothing dry-sensitive skin. It creates a dense foamy lather which cleanses well enough for me when I don't wear makeup during my allergy flares. Avène - Tolérance Extrême Cleansing Lotion It's alcohol-free, preservative-free, and scent-free. It has a soft texture which spreads easily and I can apply just a little amount to my entire face. After that, I'll use a tissue soaked in Avène Thermal Spring Water to wipe off any leftover lotion. I normally use this cleansing lotion when I have severe allergies.  Toner: HABA Pure Roots G-Lotion It stabilizes the skin if we use it regularly. I will always use G-lotion as a base before using other toners. Facial Cream: Avène - Tolérance Extrême Cream It's alcohol-free and scent-free. I will apply a thick layer of this cream on my face whenever I have a severe allergy.

Soothing & Calming Skincare for Sensitive Skin💧
Soothing & Calming Skincare for Sensitive Skin💧
𝐄𝐭𝐮𝐝𝐞 𝐇𝐨𝐮𝐬𝐞’𝐬 𝐒𝐨𝐨𝐧 𝐉𝐮𝐧𝐠 𝐋𝐢𝐧𝐞 is formulated specifically for people with sensitive skin. The collection comprises of fifteen different products which are made with gentle ingredients like 𝐏𝐚𝐧𝐭𝐡𝐞𝐧𝐨𝐬𝐢𝐝𝐞 to strengthen skin protein, 𝐌𝐚𝐝𝐞𝐜𝐚𝐬𝐬𝐨𝐬𝐢𝐝𝐞 to help relieve redness, 𝐆𝐫𝐞𝐞𝐧 𝐓𝐞𝐚 𝐋𝐞𝐚𝐟 𝐄𝐱𝐭𝐫𝐚𝐜𝐭 to offer antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties. The line doesn’t contain dyes, essential oils, or fragrances making it the perfect solution to restore skin barrier to its healthy balance. I have tried five products from the collection so far. Let me share my thoughts on them:⁣ ETUDE - Soon Jung, pH 6.5 Whip Cleanser With a pH level of 6.5, this cleanser claims to reduce friction on the skin, leaving it feeling healthy and clean.⁣ ⁣ This is a simple effective product. The foam gently cleans and soothes, without irritating or drying out sensitive skin. It leaves my skin feeling clean. I think it'll be a lil drying for those who have dry skin. ⁣ ⁣ ETUDE - SoonJung pH 5.5 Relief Toner Formulated with medicinal scutellaria baicalensis (chinese skullcap) root extract, this toner relieves, revitalizes, and soothes the skin making it perfect for warmer weathers. ⁣ ⁣ This toner is just like water. To be honest, I did not notice any changes using this. But if you’re someone who likes doing the 7 skin method, you may want to try this. It’s VERY gentle and non-irritating - has glycerin, soothing colloidal oatmeal, and various anti-irritant and anti-inflammatory antioxidants. I think it will be nice to use on warm summer days, a good way to ensure mid-day hydration when you feel your skin needs it. ⁣ ⁣ ETUDE - Soon Jung 10-Free Moist Emulsion This emulsion has a pH level of 6 which helps target dry or stressed skin.⁣ ⁣ I loved this emulsion. It is so lightweight and absorbs very quickly, perfect to pat on a damp face before doing the rest of your routine. This leaves skin soft but almost with no product feel. It is not very occlusive but I think this alone can be enough in the summer for oily skin. ⁣ ETUDE - SoonJung 2x Barrier Intensive Cream This contains dust defense which strengthens skin resistance and protects it from any harmful external particles. It is also formulated with shea butter and oil complex to deliver moisture to skin.⁣ ⁣ I expected this cream to be very thick in consistency but surprisingly, it was not. My oily skin loved it. This spreads well and absorbs in 10 minutes, does not feel heavy at all, but seals in every ingredients you put on skin nicely. Overall, a great product to add moisture without risking irritation or flaring breakouts. ⁣ ETUDE - SoonJung Cica Balm-Panthensoside 5 This gel-type balm is formulated with dust defense and panthenoside to restore and regenerate healthy skin.⁣ ⁣ This, again, is not as thick as I expected it to be. But I loved it! I enjoyed using this as an eye cream and a moisturizer around my mouth area which becomes dry sometimes. It feels very smooth, just melts on the skin and is non-greasy. This gives an immediate soothing effect. This will work great for people with dry skin or for those who don’t want a thick ointment like petrolatum to use on dry patches. ⁣ Overall, I really liked the products I’ve tried so far. I have received about 5 trial boxes, I actually haven’t finished them all, but i’m most likely gonna buy some full sizes afterward. I can highly recommend this line. Very sensitive skin-friendly and offer great value for the quality.

I wanted to dedicate a post about the FIRST EVER products that got me into clean skincare over 3 years ago and now they are offering my followers a special DISCOUNT CODE “CELINE15” ✨I was introduced to TruSelf Organics through the beautiful Jennifer Stano (influencer) who would rave about the company often and I took that as a sign to start my skincare journey!

Products for my dry skin!
Products for my dry skin!
My face always becomes very dry from Autumn to Winter. During this period, the dryness makes the skin peel. What’s more, I wear makeup all year round. Foundations and other beauty products that cover the peeling skin area aggregate my problem. I would like to introduce two products I usually used to protect my skin. The first one is Natio Rosewater Hydration Antioxidant Micellar Cleansing Water. It has a strong scent of rose. This product can remove makeup and hydrates the skin, and it is very gentle for dry skin. I have kept using this and it really cleanses my skin without irritating. It can not remove very heavy makeup but can easily remove the daily basis markup. The texture feels like water. When applying it, I only put a little bit on a cotton pad. After using this, I think my face very soft and smooth, and my skin has less peeling. After cleaning the face, apply a moisturizer is necessary. I use Natio rosewater moisture boost day cream-gel to keep my face nourished and hydrated. My skin feels soft and smooth after using this. The cream is lightweight, and the face can absorb it quickly due to its gel formula. During winter, my skin was dehydrated and also sensitive. This one is very moistured, without making my skin oily or greasy, but release my dryness and peeling. Although only a little amount really does go a long way, I use a lot of the gel on my face and wait for my face to absorb all of the gel in winter. I feel I use it as a sleep mask. The next day I think this product leaves my skin refreshed and moisturized. My face has improved after using this. Love it!

Skincare products for allergy-prone skin-Round 2
Skincare products for allergy-prone skin-Round 2
FANCL Mild Cleansing Oil This is a unique smooth cleansing oil which helps to gently clean clogged pores. I think it's better than the Shu Uemura cleansing oil which causes breakouts. It's smooth, spreads easily, emulsifies quickly, and removes foundation well. However, an eyes and lip makeup remover is recommended for eye and lip makeup. HACCI Cleansing Milk This mild honey-based cleansing milk contains more than 85% beauty serum ingredients, including royal jelly extract, milk and olive oil, leaving skin feeling nourished and moisturized. It has a soft and mellow texture which feels like applying a moisturizing lotion, and it feels delightful on the skin. It's gentle and not irritable to the skin. It cleanses really well, replenishes skin texture, and energizes tired skin. ELEMIS - Pro-Collagen Cleansing Balm This is a British spa skincare brand. Although it's a niche brand, this product is really amazing. Physical sunscreen needs to be removed or else pores will become clogged and oxidized, forming sticky and hard keratotic pores, enlarging the pores. Besides, sensitive skin is fragile, so I always choose the gentlest cleansing oils.
