simplicity is key?
life can very easily get in the way sometimes. this can be so severe that, at least in my case, i end up sacrificing things like my skincare routine or other self care, thus making my skin worse and giving me ANOTHER reason to be stressed out. this being said, i’ve abandoned a lot of steps of my routines (which were sometimes 6 steps long!!) to help make my routine quicker and more manageable. am + pm i use these products in this order: cleanse: Milk MAKEUP - Vegan Milk Cleanser or THE inkey LIST - Salicylic Acid Acne + Pore Cleanser tone: THE inkey LIST - Glycolic Acid Exfoliating Toner (i use this every other night) serum/oil: e.l.f. - All the Feels Facial Oil eye cream: zero by skin academy (tried adding this as a new item multiple times but i give up typing it all in every time) moisturizer: e.l.f. - Happy Hydration Cream or Milk MAKEUP - Vegan Milk Moisturizer (i usually opt for the milk one at night as it is thicker and heavier) spot treatment: THE inkey LIST - Succinic Acid Acne Treatment (not pictured) sunscreen: live clean mineral face sunscreen SPF 45 #cheriecreator
AFTER PARTY : first impressions
Milk MAKEUP - After Party Skincare Set for $43 CAD, i purchased this set of skincare products from Milk Makeup through Sephora. here is a first impressions of all products you get as listed below: ￼ ￼59ml of Milk MAKEUP - Vegan Milk Cleanser regular price $20 CAD, or $40 CAD for 118ml ￼15ml of Milk MAKEUP - Vegan Milk Moisturizer regular price $25 CAD, or $50 CAD for 48ml ￼a full sized 3g Milk MAKEUP - Kush Lip Balm in “green dragon”, regular price $21 CAD ￼AND a milk makeup-branded headband!!! so let’s just get into the review!💗 ￼Milk MAKEUP - Vegan Milk Cleanser thoughts: i really like this cleanser so far. it is non-fragranced and foams very nicely. after applying it, it did not make my skin dry or tight-feeling. i give it 4 out of 5 stars only because i have not tried using it to remove eye makeup yet and that is a somewhat big determining factor for me when trying new facial cleansers. also there is, to me, a VERY reasonable amount of product here for a trial run with it. ￼Milk MAKEUP - Vegan Milk Moisturizer thoughts: this moisturizer is unlike anything i’ve tried before and i’m so into it!!! it is a very thick cream but has this really interesting mattifying quality when applied to the skin. it is also fragrance-free which is awesome! after wearing overnight, my skin feels more supple and definitely still very moisturized. i am definitely considering purchasing the full-sized one when i inevitably empty this little guy!! ￼Milk MAKEUP - Kush Lip Balm this lip balm definitely feels like a step up from other lip balms I’ve tried. the packaging is super cool with a magnetic lid. despite being full-sized, i don’t really like that it comes with so little product. i like that the shade i have, green dragon, is green in the packaging then becomes clear when applied. you can definitely tell it is a more natural product as the formula is slightly grainy rather than super smooth which doesn’t bother me. even after it wears off my lips still feel smooth. i only scored it so low because it doesn’t come with enough product for the price in my opinion, and i have no info about long-term use or moisturizing properties quite yet. i really look forward to continuing to use these products and seeing how they work, and if requested i would love to do a follow-up once i empty these (or maybe i won’t?) to see more long term effects. hope you guys enjoyed! feel free to follow here and on my IG @chloebrk.mua #cheriecreator
Milk Makeup Vegan Milk Moisturizer
The Milk MAKEUP - Vegan Milk Moisturizer is a SAVIOR for dry skin. I am really happy with how how well this is working for me. This moisturizer is vegan (clearly by the name) and fragrance free which is something I love. It’s meant to hydrate and nourish the skin. No actives in this, just a good moisturizing concoction. I will say, I was nervous it was going to cause serious breakouts when I first opened it because SHE THICC. This cream is sort of like a body butter in consistency. But after using it for weeks, no noticeable breakouts other than my usual stuff. In terms of what skin type, I would definitely say it’s geared toward super dry skin. It is extremely moisturizing and left my skin feeling soft after using it but not greasy at all. I don’t know if someone with oily skin would like how heavy this feels so if you are oily, I would say try a sample first. I also am a little nervous about the consistency going into summer. I am hoping it doesn’t melt off my face, but we shall see. For now, it leaves my skin feeling absolutely silky and amazing. I can use it both morning and night easily. It works well when mixing an oil into it as well. The packaging is cute too, but it doesn’t come with a scoop, so make sure you have your own if you plan on purchasing. Overall, this worked really well for me and I would recommend it to anyone with super dry skin looking to add some moisture back

My lazyyyyyyy day routine
After longggggggg and tiring working day, I just wanna lie back and have a break from complicated skincare products. So I usually will shorten my skincare into two steps as my lazy day routine. Cuz these two products all have pinky colours, I call this as “pink routine”. My Skin type: combo/acne-prone skin For me, toner is the must-have step for skincare. So u can’t really save toner even you are lazy! I chooseDARPHIN - Intral Toner with Chamomile, cuz it’s smell is sooo calming - refreshing and natural floral fragrant with a bit sweet fruity. I just feel so relax by using it, so vital for the busy day! And it’s really easy to be spread and not pricy! Strongly recommend, ladies!! Another must-have is facial cream. For me, it’sCLINIQUE - Moisture Surge 72-Hour Auto-Replenishing Hydrator. Like it’s name, it moistures the skin quite well only with a tiny bit! The cute pinky gel-like texture makes it so easy to spread and replenish ur skin without causing acne!!! I can’t ask more for this!!!

For Combo Skin! You Don't Need To Deal With Each Problem Separately!💯💯
Having combination skin can sometimes feels hard because skin issues feel like a double blow. Half of my face is feels tight and dry like a dessert while the other half (slash T-zone) is oily and prone to breakouts, espcially on the forehead and chin. Instead of using two separate products to tackle both skin concerns, I've broken down my skincare to a simple routine that includes an all-rounder moisturizer to combat both issues. The first moisturizer that I recommend is my favorite, CLINIQUE - Dramatically Different Moisturizing Lotion+. Although I switch between different brands, I find myself going back to this one if I need to fall back on a suitable moisturizer for my skin. This formula is best for oily combination or oily skin types, hence it is perfect for me to use all over the face and neck during warmer months or coupled with a strong serum in winter. I can spread the oil-free lightweight lotion across my face easily without it feeling too greasy (even on my T-zone) and my skin absorbs it really quickly too. Its natural ingredients keep my skin moisturized without feeling oily for the whole day or night. The other moisturizer I recommend may come as a surprise for a few -POND'S - Facial Moisturizers Dry Skin Cream. I originally bought this cream at a drugstore as I desperately needed a cheap and simple cream that day but it has now become a staple on my bathroom counter. The rich creamy formula absorbs into the skin easily, and locks in moisture all day without feeling too oily. I use the Clinique lotion the first time I wash my face in the morning., and then apply Ponds cream after a work-out shower (I work out twice a day). As it is so reasonably priced, I don’t feel bad with using this too much. Using the mix of moisturizers allow my skin to feel fresh, and most importantly, achive the right balance of hydration and oil control.

Are These Hyped Up Skincare Products Worth It?
You ever get to a point with your skincare stash where you start asking yourself if certain products were worth the hype or not? After a certain point of using them you either see the hype or wonder what everyone is seeing that you’re not. One item I completely found not worth the hype was the Milk MAKEUP - Cooling Water . I had wanted to try this for the longest time and I finally got the chance with the Sephora birthday gift last year. Above I have the mini which is $15 for .21 oz of product (the full size is $26 for 1.2 oz). Milk claims this cooling under eye stick helps reduce the appearance of puffiness and dark circles with caffeine while hydrating with seawater (which sounds weird to me). My issue with this product is the stick doesn’t have enough glide. It skips across the skin and I feel like I have to tug too much at the delicate under eye area. It’s just too much trauma to the under eye. It’s a little cooling but not enough for it to be in the name. I don’t find it hydrates well either. It has no detectable smell. Overall this product is completely not worth the hype. Another product that is super hyped up is the MARIO BADESCU - Mario Badescu Drying Lotion . I bought last year around Christmas after hearing all the buzz about it. It was $17 for 1 oz of product. I will say that for the most part it does work but as I went to esthetician school I realized how bad this is for your skin. Yes, this will dry out a pimple but it also dries out your surrounding skin and can in turn damage it. When I did use it I used to spot treatment by sticking a cue tip in the suspension and grabbing some of the pink solution and applying to the blemish. It has this very STRONG smell of alcohol I didn’t like. I like to spot treat before I go to bed and I found when I was sleeping this would just flake off. It just irritated the skin and made it inflamed. I would not recommend this at all for acne. Like the whole range is really bad. Salicylic acid is a lot better of an option. This definitely was not worth the hype.

My PM to AM Routine (Sensitive Skin)
I have delicate skin, so it took me a few years to find the perfect routine. I tried many products before that made my face peel and burn. Through trial and error, I finally found the routine that soothes and moisturizes my skin. And the best part: It’s only 4 steps! 🌙 At night, I use the Soap and Glory Peaches and Clean Deep Cleansing Milk. It’s soap-free, so doesn’t dry out my skin. Then, I take a raspberry-sized amount of the First Aid Beauty Ultra Repair Cream and apply it to my face and neck. It’s very gentle, and doesn’t burn even my sensitive under eye area. I finish with the Glossier Balm Dotcom on my lips. It’s made with lanolin, a thick moisturizer that makes your lips feel creamy. I keep it on overnight to seal my lips from dryness. ☀️ In the morning, I use the same cleanser to freshen my face again. Then, I use the Aveeno Positively Radiant Daily Moisturizer with SPF 30. I apply a dime-sized amount to my face, and it leaves a silky texture on my skin. I have been using these routine for over a year. Since then, I started getting compliments on how healthy my skin looks. 🖤 One more note: I do use one extra step in my skincare routine, but it’s a prescription acne cream. Since it’s prescribed, I can’t recommend it to everyone. But it’s harsh on my skin, and these other products don’t flare it up. To me, that’s another sign that they’re good for sensitive skin. If you have very gentle skin like me in need of some brightening, definitely check if your local Ulta or Sephora has trial sizes for these gems!
🌹Empty! Sisley Floral Toning Lotion
Sisley FLORAL TONING LOTION For Dry and Sensitive Skin😍 Empty again, but i have two backup hhh It claims to ormulated with hydrolats of Rose, Cornflower, and Witch Hazel, known for their soothing and softening properties, this lotion is appropriate for dry, sensitive skin. It tones, soothes and prepares the skin for your daily skin care regimen.🤩 I have been always interested in Sisley products, but as you all know, it’s not cheap. So when I find this toner, I thought it was the right time to purchase. This toner is not that expensive compared to other Sisley products. And fortunately, it worthy. I think it is quite suitable for dry, sensitive and combination skin. It absorbs quickly. I feel my skin absorbs enough water. I think it hydrates well. Besides that, my skin calms after apply it. I also like this smell. I know the ingredints that Sisley use are pure and natural, so it tells very fresh. I have acne prone skin, but this toner didn’t cause any breakouts.🙊🌝 Sometimes I use it to double cleanse my skin. I like it. I will rate it 4 out of 5. 🌟🌟🌟🌟Hope it can be cheaper. Pray!🙏

My Mental Wellness Improved Through My Self AcceptanceWhen I was around 13 or 14 years old, I remember routinely taking one of my older sister’s black eyeliner pencils before school every morning. I’d arrive early so that I could slip away to the girl’s bathroom to apply a single black line to my eyelids. My parents didn’t allow me to wear any makeup at the time. Although this smudgy line on my eyelids didn’t make me look all that much different, I never felt comfortable at school without it. My teenage mind convinced myself that I needed some sort of cosmetic symbol in order to appropriately express my femininity. Up until that point in my life, society had told girls that looked like me - tall, Black, and with kinky hair - that we somehow weren’t as beautiful as the other girls. For far too long, I believed it too.Feb. 17
