Self-Care Enthusiast ✨ | Lover Not a Fighter 💖 | Looking for the Best Cruelty-Free Products! 🐰
My Cherie Goodbye 💔🍒🌸
Hello Cherie Fam, Like everyone else on this app, I too was disappointed to hear the news that Cherie will be no more. I’ve loved this app and this community ever since I joined last year, not knowing anything about skincare. Since then, I’ve learned not just about beauty and skin care products, but also about myself, my passion, my interests, and my self care habits. If you’ve learned anything from my posts, I hope it’s this: Self care is extremely important for everyone to indulge in and create healthy habits in its name. I’ve struggled with many mental illnesses, dating back to my early teenage years. I’ve taken several medications, gone to therapy, seen doctors regularly, I’ve even been hospitalized for these conditions but I’ve learned so much in this time that I am truly grateful for all my experiences. One of the main things I’ve learned is that self care habits are vital for a healthy lifestyle, for not just me, but for everyone! Skin care has been included in my list of self care activities since joining this site and I’m grateful for every piece of advice and story that has helped me in my journey to clearer skin and a healthier mind. So thank you, Cherie fam, for your support and guidance as I found new interests to help maintain my sanity. Because of the impact beauty and skincare has had on my life, I decided to make an Instagram to continue my journey. I know it won’t be the same, but I’m hoping I get a similar spark of joy every time I interact with a fellow skin care lover/self care enthusiast. If you want to join, follow along with me on Instagram, @bloomingwallflowerr and I will follow you back. Love and peace to you all. I hope you all realize how beautiful you are and that your worthiness is not defined by society’s standards. Xoxo, Robyn 💋
Week 2 of Natural Deodorant: Thoughts 🤔🐘
So I recently decided to switch to natural deodorants that don’t have aluminum and other harsh ingredients that can do some serious damage to a woman’s body. First experiment: DRUNK ELEPHANT - Sweet Pitti Deodorant Cream First thoughts: I put it on and it felt really nice, but that smell!!! 🤢 My goodness it has a smell you really have to get used to. I originally thought it smelled like body odor to be honest. I’ve never used a deodorant cream but it was interesting to say the least. Another thing I would have to get used to. Thoughts now: The smell is growing on me. It’s not my favorite scent but it’s getting better. I have learned to only put it on right after I get out of the shower. That usually helps prevent body odor for the rest of the day (sometimes even into day 2 if I’m feeling really lazy!) If I put this deodorant on on day 2 without a shower to get rid of already present odor, FORGET IT! The smell does not mask my pits, in fact it made it WORSE! I guess this will help me stay on top of showering my body every day. (I only wash my hair 2-3 times a week so some days I forget I need to wash the rest of my body more often). I actually really like the cream concept. I’ll put it on after I shower and then do my usual routine of body lotion and face creams, etc. Then I’ll put my clothes on and I feel fresh and ready for the day (or night, depending on what time of day I shower 🤣). Here’s a warning that’s on the bottle but I would like to make it a little more clear for any of you that want to try this deodorant. The bottle says do not apply to broken skin and it’s not lying! I cut my underarm shaving and holy $#*! did that burn!!! Do not recommend wearing if you have an open cut (even a tiny one). All and all, I am really enjoying the life of aluminum free deodorant. I’m not sure if I would repurchase, unless I can get used to the scent. I might try another natural deodorant when this is gone to see what brand I like the best. What has your experience with all natural deodorant been? Have you tried 🍸🐘?? Let me know in the comments!! 💖😘

🖤⭐️ Empties and Replacements ⭐️🖤
Hey, friends! Here are two more empties and their replacements! I got HERBIVORE - Bamboo Charcoal Detoxifying Soap Bar at the beginning of December because I was looking for a body soap that would help with my back acne. At first, I only used this bar on my back (shoulders) and chest because those are my most problematic spots. I started seeing results around 1 week after consistent use. On the days when I felt lazy and didn’t want to use two bar soaps I would use this one all over and I started to realize it was helping reduce the redness and bumps on my upper arms. I never knew what caused the bumps and redness but I know it runs in my family (my mom always told me it was eczema). But this bar soap seemed to help a lot, so I expanded and started using it all over my body. It’s really worked wonders and kept the acne away from my body. Very impressed with this product AND I feel less wasteful because it’s a bar soap and comes in a cardboard container (No Plastic!). The only bad thing I would say would be that it didn’t last me as long as I would have liked for the price, but I repurchased because I’m hoping to get rid of the redness on my arms completely! Next I have The Ordinary - Squalane Cleanser which I’ve talked about before. Love this as a first wash during a double cleanse at night (removes all my makeup and keeps my skin feeling clean without stripping it). It’s super cheap and I love this brand however again the only problem would be that this small bottle doesn’t last very long (maybe lasted me a month) but the bigger bottle is all sold out everywhere I look! I guess a lot of people agree with me on this cleanser. Hopefully next replacement can be a bigger bottle! 🙏🏻 What products are you getting through quickly and repurchasing?? Let me know in the comments! 👂🏻✍🏻 Love to all! 🖤

5⭐️ For My Spa Day Body Essentials!
Happy Friday!! I am absolutely IN LOVE with my body spa day essentials! This morning, before work, I had a little extra time to treat myself to a mini spa day. I wash my hair yesterday so today was all focus on my body! Of course I did my morning skin care routine (check out my last few posts for all the details on that) but I also added some new stuff to the rest of my body care routine. Taking care of our WHOLE bodies is so important. When I take care of my body, I feel happy and good about myself. It’s a very empowering and a unique experience when you put your body on a pedestal and care for it the way you should! So here we go! This morning I started with scrubbing my entire body with my ecoTOOLS - Dry Body Brush !! Some people say the dry brush hurts and irritates their skin but I love it!! I love having my back scratched so it feels lovely in my opinion. I make sure to bush in round strokes and definitely pay attention to my legs and my stretch marks. You’ll notice a difference if you do! Next I get in the shower and wash my body with HERBIVORE - Bamboo Charcoal Soap Most days I just use this for the bumps on my arms and the acne on my back but today I wanted to use it all over because I felt like I deserved high end treatment. I’ve been using this soap for 2 months now on my arms mainly where I have bumps and redness (I’ve had this since I was a teenager) but nothing has helped quite like this soap. It’s amazing how it’s just naturally fading over time! One of my newest favorite products is frank body - A-Beauty Coffee Scrub which came next this morning. It smells just like coffee and feels so good to rub into my skin. It is a bit messy so use with caution but the after results are amazing! My skin feels so soft it’s unbelievable! Finally in the shower I used my billie - Billie Razor and billie - The Shave Cream to shave my legs and underarms, because why not! Go the extra mile! When I get out of the shower is my final step, HEMPZ - Lavender Oil CBD Herbal Body Moisturizer ! ! I love love love this moisturizer. I am obsessed with the smell of lavender and the fact that there is CBD in the product just makes it 10x better. And it was on sale at Ulta!! Follow me for an upcoming post on CBD in body products and it’s benefits. Also make sure to cheers this post and leave a ⭐️ in the comments if you want me to video shoot my next spa day routine with y’all. I just learned how to edit videos so I’m pumped! Take care, everyone! 💖

My Holy Grail for Adult & Hormonal Acne
I’m super excited to start recording and sharing my skin care journey. I’ve loved skincare since my teens and have always enjoyed trying new products, but being acne prone and having sensitive skin, trying new stuff hasn’t always been super thrilling! Now that I’m learning more about some great brands (that sadly weren’t around when I was a teen) I’m excited to branch out and try some more that will work for my skin. I have combination and sensitive skin that really changes with the weather. It’s really dry where I live, so even though my skin is prone to oiliness, it often has dry patches and even damage from the dry, winter air. One problem I’ve been having for the past year or two is adult hormonal acne around my jawline. Spot treatments were effective for pimples with a head, but I could not get rid of the bumps that started forming under my skin along my jaw. Not only were they not going away, but more were appearing. Then came The Ordinary - Niacinamide 10% + Zinc 1% I’m not going to lie, I didn’t understand how to use this at first. I thought it was for pimples and it would get rid of my breakouts. I tried it a couple times and felt like it didn’t do anything and there it sat on my shelf for months. But one day, when I was at a total loss with these bumps under my skin, I decided to spread some of this serum all over my jawline before bed. The next morning, 75% of the bumps were gone! My skin was so irritated and it felt like this product was some magic eraser for this freaked out areas of my skin. I’ve since learned a bit more about what Niacinimide and Zinc is supposed to do — like calming irritation and reducing dark spots — and I am totally in love with this product. I now use this product AM and PM under my moisturizer, focusing on areas that have more irritation and dark red areas leftover from pimples. I’m interested in trying other Niacinimide serums, like the one from The Inkey List, but it’s likely I will keep buying this great product for a long time.

FENTY BEAUTY-What it Dew Makeup Refreshing Spray
this works for oily skin!
🌊 TikTok has a ton of beauty hacks that I was pretty dubious about but this worked surprisingly well for me. Pic one is 4 hours of wear, Pic two is immediately after application, pic 3 is products used. 🌊 Skin Type: Oily and Medium Tan 🌊 The hack: instead of going moisturizer, primer, foundation, setting powder, setting spray go moisturizer, setting powder, setting spray, primer, foundation 🌊 What you need moisturizer, setting powder, setting spray, primer, foundation in this order 🌊 Does it work? YES. Its supposed to make your skin look better and your foundation last longer by absorbing oil below your foundation. And as an oily girl, i am all for anything that keeps my face matte longer. On initial application, i noticed that the side of my face with the reverse routine looked more poreless. After a few hours, i had much more oil on the Normal side in comparison to the Reverse. Give it a try! I was pretty happy with the results, but let me know if it worked for you!
