The Ouai Body Creme
The Ouai Body Creme
What is it? A nourishing body creme that includes squalane, coconut oil, cupuacu butter to deliver softness, hydration and a beautiful glow to your skin. I’ve been using this several times a week for a few months now and it’s unreal. It smells so clean and fresh but also leaves my skin feeling silky smooth. The scent could be strong to some, so if you’re sensitive to fragrance this probably isn’t for you. I absolutely adore the ouai and all of their products have amazing scents and actually deliver. This is a luxe body creme imo but it’s worth every penny. It doesn’t leave me feeling greasy at all. It soaks right in and the moisture lasts for an entire day. It’s definitely a splurge item but I’d recommend it to anyone! 5/5 Cherie rating

F-Balm Review
F-Balm Review
With mixed reviews I was skeptical, but since receiving F Balm via influenster I was able to try out F Balm and get my honest opinions gathered! Starting with the ingredients: Squalane, niacinamide, coconut water, glycerin, sodium hyaluronate, omega fatty acids and ceramides are some of the key ingredients. And they are pretty high up on the list which is impressive! This overnight mask has small little beads filled with Vit F that break open when you rub it in. It has humectants that help keep moisture in to help keep your skin barrier in check! . My experience has been great so far. Everyone’s skin is different and mine is typically on the oily/combination but dehydrated side. I can use a variety of products and my skin usually reacts well! I’ve used this as a thicker moisturizer at least a few times a week since I received it. My complexion has been more even with less congestion ( I also think TLC framboos helps with this). At first I thought this made my face feel sort of greasy so I was worried I would get breakouts. But i haven’t had a significant breakout in probably two months. This fits right into my routine and when I wake up, my skin isn’t oily! It soaks in all these ingredients super well and my skin feels supple and clean. Overall, I love what this feels like on my skin and how my skin feels and looks after waking up. I most likely will repurchase this once I run out 💙💙 5/5 Cherie rating

DE Slaai Makeup Melting Butter Cleanser
DE Slaai Makeup Melting Butter Cleanser
I’d rather get coal than.. Slaai Makeup melting Butter Cleanser. I know it’s dramatic but this product just didn’t wow me like I thought it would. What is it? A cleansing balm that is supposed to melt off makeup, dirt, sunscreen and waterproof products. Key ingredients include fruit extracts, marula seed and baobab seed oils and many more that are meant for nourishing the skin while cleansing. My experience: I’ve used different amounts of this products because I’ve read that some others have had issues with this too while using too much. Every time I use I feel there is a thick film on my skin that feels hard to wash off with my second cleanse. I’ve had this for probably 4 months and have used it about 4-5 times because each time I’m just not that impressed. I just don’t think it removes my eye makeup that well and I think it’s hard to spread around my face because it doesn’t emulsify as well as other balms I’ve used. I’ve had tiny pieces of this just not melt at all. It feels quite “waxy” and is pretty hard to rinse off. Most other balms I’ve used rinse with ease and have a more pleasant scent while removing my makeup better and not leaving me with such a thick layer of oils on my face. It’s scent is also pretty bland. I couldn’t pick something it smells like. I’ll admit this isn’t a drying product and hasn’t caused any notable breakouts, but I don’t think it’s something I would repurchase because it takes way longer to cleanse simply because it takes forever to get off my face!!

Primera Cleansing Oil
Primera Cleansing Oil
What is it? A K-beauty brand 7-seed nourishing cleansing oil. Helpful in removing makeup, dirt, and sunscreen while replenishing the skin. Perfect for normal, combination, dry and oily skin types. Includes 7 oils: safflower seed, grape seed, meadow foam seed, rapeseed, plum seed, Passion flower seed, and raspberry! My experience: i received this product via octoly just in time as I’ve been searching for a cleansing oil to add into my routine. I love that it’s certified clean at Sephora so it’s not formulated with the yucky stuff. I’ve truly been loving this cleansing oil so much! Emulsifies so well and ever so gently removes my mascara! It doesn’t feel drying on the skin at all and it never has left any film on my skin after using and this is v important to me lol. My skin feels so good and bouncy before i double cleanse! I like to make sure all of my makeup is off completely and this does the job. I have been using this practically every night for 2.5 weeks or so and I’ve had no reactions or breakouts from adding this in! It retails for 30 USD and since it’s the first cleansing oil I’ve tried I’m not sure if there are similar cleansers for less although this is a really great product. I would recommend this to everyone. The packaging is perfect and i love being able to see how much product i have left. No cons from me.

Pixi GLOW Glycolic Boost Sheet Mask
Pixi GLOW Glycolic Boost Sheet Mask
What is it? A brightening and hydrating sheet mask! I would say this is best for any skin type because it isn’t a mask that dries you out imo. Some ingredients include glycolic acid, red ginseng extract, aloe extract, camelia sinensjs, cucumber extract, witch hazel and many more! My experience: i actually love this sheet mask. I got a pack of three a few months ago and i just love them. It’s a soft sheet mask that fits pretty well on my face. It feels saturated just the perfect amount so it doesn’t have too much excess product! I find this mask gives an instant glow after using. My face all around looks brighter, smoother, and hydrated. It isn’t drying like i mentioned before so I’m assuming the glycolic acid concentration isn’t too high although it is the fourth ingredient on the list! I love instant gratification products and this is one of them. Even the morning after using the results are still there. It’s almost magic! I 😂 i mainly love because it doesn’t dry me out and it helps make those congestion bumps look a lot smaller. I love the ingredients and I’d recommend to anyone. It retails at 10 USD for a pack of 3 masks which is an awesome deal and I’m about to run to the store and get more because i used my last one!!! My rating: 5/5 no complaints! ☺️

LUSH Mint Julips Lip Scrub
LUSH Mint Julips Lip Scrub
What is it? A sugary lip scrub that is supposed to help exfoliate those lippies!!! Suitable for all those dry lip gals! Some ingredients include castor sugar, jojoba oil, vanilla extract, tagetes oil and peppermint oil! My experience: I’ve had this Mint Chocolate sugar lip scrub for about a year and it’s the only lip scrub I’ve tried and it’s pretty darn great. It is a very grainy and sugary texture(of course) but rubs around lips pretty easily. You’re even allowed to lick the lip scrub because it has edible ingredients! It doesn’t dry out my lips and makes them extremely smooth after scrubbing! It can be a bit sticky after wards and I’m assuming that’s the sugar. My lips even feel a bit more plump after but that’s probably just from actually scrubbing something on them. I haven’t had any reactions which is nice. This is perfect to sluff off the dead skin that happens with dry lips especially during the winter time i find myself reaching for this a bit more. It has a slight cooling sensation once wiped off too which i enjoy. I’d recommend to anyone who’s lips need some TLC! Lush uses vegan and natural ingredients and i think they’re an amazing brand. I knock off one star because the stickiness can be sort of annoying because it leaves your finger a bit sticky, too! LUSH - Mint Julips Lip Scrub My rating: 4/5

Perfect for dry skin!
Perfect for dry skin!
Absolutely love this product. A little goes a long way! I use this product in my night time routine. I use this on the days that I feel like my face needs extra hydration. This product is a more heavy serum. I like to use this product before I use a moisturizer. I definitely wouldn’t use this product if you have oily skin. You should only use this product if you have dry or combination skin. I also love this product because it is vegan, cruelty free and synthetic fragrance free! This product is also good for fine lines and wrinkles. Definitely will continue to use. JOSIE MARAN - Pure Argan Milk Intensive Hydrating Treatment

Origins clear improvement mask is ultra purifying to help deep clean AND visibility reduce your pores. However, I don’t believe you can reduce your pores size, this mask will most definitely suck out those nasties toxins and oils for a cleaner face. I always find myself reaching for another one of these when I run out of them! This one is probably my fourth one. I do own a large collection of masks but I ALWAYS find myself reaching out for this one. It has a very nice and cooling sensation, and spreads like a dream ✨ This is recommended for most skin types, however if your sensitive id sit this one out. It can be a bit too strong for you. This product is formulated without a list over 50 ingredients like sulfates, parabens and phthalates. You can buy this at Sephora for $26 for a 2.5 oz which is amazing because this should last you a while. I recommend to use this max 2-3 times a week.

Truly a Routine Staple
Truly a Routine Staple
This is one of my favorite new products that I’ve tried recently. I was initially drawn to it because of the packaging and the colors. I had never heard of the brand Truly at the time so I took a chance and bought it. It’s a lip plumping balm and it lives up to its claims. I put it on every night and morning and my lips have stayed plump and moisturized since the first day. It has a light peppermint smell to it that’s amazing. The texture is like a soft soufflé like cream and it feels so great when it’s on. It’s $14 which may seem high for a lip balm but It’s worth every penny. I’ve had this for about three months or so and I’m only halfway through it. I will be buying another one as soon as I finish this jar. I also highly recommend it to anyone who asks!
