I’m so thrilled to share more about products I love 🥰 and it’ll give me an excuse to play with photography more! ——— Products: ✨ farmacy honey potion mask - this mask is super sentimental to me and I try to preserve it as much as I can. The first high end/luxury mask I bought three years ago that sparked my obsession with masking. It warms the skin as you massage it in and instantly adds moisture and firmness while also gently cleansing. . ✨ glow recipe watermelon glow sleeping mask - second jar of this stuff! I have oily, dehydrated skin. I used this throughout the entire summer as my night moisturizer when I needed extra TLC after sun exposure. My skin always looks and feels so glowy and baby soft in the morning. It’s also the perfect last step after multi-masking. . ✨ herbivore botanicals blue tansy resurfacing clarity mask - I’m almost out! this mask isn’t for those who are new to acids. I use this when my skin feels more congested or inflamed. blue tansy is a wonderful anti inflammatory ingredient and the AHA/BHA complex provides extra exfoliation!

Blue Tansy Mask
One way that I practice at home wellness is by skincare and specifically whenever I want treat myself, I do a face mask. I've just recently started using the blue tansy by @herbivorebotanicals and I really love it! It has fruit enzymes as AHA and uses white Willow bark as BHA as well as blue tansy oil to calm the skin. I highly recommend this mask for anybody who wants a good gentle exfoliation while feeling pampered 😊 #athomewellness #cherieconversation
Possibly the worst mask for sensitive skin
You guys know I hate to be a downer but I have to bring in honesty whether it’s good or bad! I call it like I see it when I see or experience something horrible. This AHA + BHA clarifying mask from Herbivore Botanicals HERBIVORE - Blue Tansy Fruit Enzyme Resurfacing Clarity Mask has been in some controversies because Herbivore does not use preservatives in their products and many believe that after owning this mask for a short period of time, it starts to grow mold. Now, I’m not here to comment on that but I want to mention I only have one photo because I do not want to put this on my skin after patch testing it, so I will explain the texture: It’s truly a sticky gel formula that hardens into a clear film as the mask dries. The consistency is very similar to glow recipe’s watermelon sleeping mask. I do want to mention the smell is heavenly—it smells strongly of pineapples and reminds me of a fancy cocktail I always drink when my fiancé and I go to the beach! Hence my use of emojis!! (Honestly the emojis are the only fun part of this review) The goal of this mask is to help eliminate dead skin cells and treat clogged pores and uneven skin texture. Now, onto my experience. Many natural skincare products contain ingredients that are considered allergenic, meaning you may not be allergic to the ingredients but your skin is more likely to have a reaction to them. Well...spoiler alert, I did. This mask BURNED my skin, turned me BEET RED, and made me have horrible breakouts at the end of August last year. I later found out that my skin consistently has allergic reactions to willow bark which is a natural form of BHA. If you have sensitive skin I highly recommend staying far away from this product and honesty all Herbivore products. It costs $48 for 2.3oz of pure nature juice. I honestly think it’s extremely overpriced for what it is...most of the product is made up of aloe vera leaf juice so take that how you will... I have to rate this 1 out of 5 stars due to my experience, how terribly this product hurt my skin, and how the brand lacks communication on their lack of preservative use and how it may affect their products over time.

Honey Facial Mask
Sharing my love with one of my top mask picks This golden beauty is by FARMACY - Honey Potion Renewing Antioxidant Hydration Mask and is the most unique experience. It comes out thick, like honey, but as soon as you start massaging it into your skin, it turns into a rich cream. Some people are afraid to try this mask as it warms upon application but let me tell you, it’s a gentle feeling, just a light warmth on your skin. I have highly sensitive skin and have no issues with this mask at all. My face is left glowing and drenched in hydration after using. . Honey Potion is packed with antioxidants. Farmacy’s locally sourced honey comes from their very own bee farm. The bees pollinate the Echinacea Green Envy flowers. I love those flowers! The healing honey, soothing propolis and amino acid-rich royal jelly nourish dry skin and give you that dewy glow. . I have seen amazing results incorporating Honey Potion into my routine a few days a week. My skin always feels more nourished, softer and again, the glow of a younger face. . Honey Potion along with FARMACY - Bright On Massage-Activated Vitamin C Mask will always be apart of my skincare routine because I’ve seen proven results from a company I can trust. . Have you tried Honey Potion? Is it on your list to try? I’d love to hear your thoughts on this mask! .
Honey potion farmacy mask!
Happy Wednesday everybody 💕 hope everyone is doing well during these times. Today’s review is highlighting the @farmacybeauty honey potion renewing antioxidant hydration mask. Farmacy is one of my favourite brands because they partner with organic farmers to craft beautiful and cruelty free products. The product contains honey, glycerin (which provides hydration) and B vitamins which will smooth in out your skin. I’ve heard some mixed reviews about this product as once you apply it, the mask does head up and may cause some irritations however I have not found any discomfort when using this mask (though this may vary with different skin types) I use this product once every week because a little goes a long way! The packaging is absolutely beautiful with a glass bottle and wood cap. This product is a #cleanatsephora product and comes in recyclable packaging. Overall I would recommend you to try a sample of this product to see how your specific skin type may react to this formula before investing in the larger size.

Smoothing Mask Off: Murad vs. Glow Recipe
Acne prone skin and uneven tone and texture go hand-in-hand and I’ve found that using exfoliating masks have been the most successful for my skin. Two of my favorite masks that help slough away dead skin cells while also brightening and evening the complexion are Glow Recipe’s Watermelon + AHA Glow Sleeping Mask and Murad’s Replenishing Multi-Acid Peel. Since they have strong AHAs and other acids, I like to use them at least twice a week and at nighttime. **Always follow up with sunscreen the next day since they make your skin more sensitive to the sun. More details about the masks: Glow Recipe’s Watermelon + AHA Glow Sleeping Mask: This is a skin-smoothing radiance-boosting nightly sleeping mask that enhances the complexion with a blend of antioxidant-rich watermelon, moisturizing hyaluronic acid, and exfoliating AHAs lactic and glycolic acids. I love this mask because of how gentle and hydrating it is. I go through phases of using it every night and once weekly and will use it after I apply all of my serums in place of a moisturizer. I can confidently say that this makes my skin super smooth and super hydrated! Murad’s Replenishing Multi-Acid Peel: This bi-phase peel rejuvenates the look of skin for a vibrant glow and is fortified with an AHA blend of glycolic, lactic, and malic acids, as well as salicylic acid and tranexamic acid. Together, these powerful-yet-gentle acids exfoliate and brighten skin in two phases to reveal a smoother and brighter complexion. This can be applied like a toner with a cotton pad before applying serums and moisturizers and doesn’t need to be rinsed off. It can be used twice daily in the morning and the night, but my skin can be sensitive and dry so I don’t like to overwhelm it. I bought this mask in hopes of it clearing my acne (which is super hard to do since it’s hormonal) and while it’s not necessarily halting my breakouts, it is helping to reduce scarring and the size of the breakouts.
I tried Barulab 7 in 1 Total Solution Black Clay Mask, it's a clay mask in a sheet mask and I want to share the review with you today. This mask is called 7 in 1 for a reason, it gives effects like cleansing, nourishing, moisturizing, pore care, exfoliation, sebum control and focus on skin tone (balancing the colour). For me, it reminded me of one treatment I use in a professional environment - we use similar masks before manual cleansing. The fit of this mask is ideal, it has 2 different parts and each part is covered in two layers of plastic to make sure that the mask is easy to apply. I had to wait 40 minutes until I'm able to take it off. The main ingredients here are Kaolin, Bentonite, Charcoal Powder and Volcanic Ash. They all are amazing for the skin and pore care, you can actually meet them in many products recommended for pore care. But there are also moisturizing, soothing and brightening ingredients like Niacinamide, Allantoin, Panthenol, Centella Asiatica Extract, Adenosine and one weird ingredient - Silkworm. My pores are clean and my face was red the minute after I used it but then it became pale just like usual after using clay. It was a really nice mask and I guess I'll go back to it once I'm out of sheet masks. This mask can be used straight after foam cleanser - you'll have to clean your face after anyway because there will be some clay on your face. Pro tip - while using this mask you can use mist to make sure that the mask won't dry out too much, dry clay can be a reason of dehydration, if your skin is dry you might actually test using clay after using facial oil.

ASARAI was founded by a naturopath from Australia with the goals of keeping it simple & real. The line has really fun bright yellow packaging with the bonus of being affordable Earth Tones Face Mask is a detox clay mask that uses Australian red clay. It’s also got aloe, kakadu plum (highly in vitamin c), rainforest lime (natural exfoliant) & sunflower seed oil. This masks is a detox, brighten, smooth, calm inflammation & tighten/unclog pores mask. I’m always scared of a drying clay mask but this one was pretty good at not being too drying. Plus how cute is that turn key to get every last bit out Power Trip Vitamin Oil is a nourishing oil with sunflower, camellia, safflower, sweet almond, vitamins c & e, moringa & sandalwood oils. It’s also got coconut triglycerides so that gives the oil that slightly thicker texture. It’s rich but not heavy or greasy. I adore the yellow glass bottle.

SUMMER FRIDAYS-Overtime Mask
This lovely Matcha Magic Super-Antioxidant Mask is meant to detoxify, decongest and de stress the skin, which is definitely something everyone could use This mask is made with - Matcha Green Tea Extract, which helps to reduce oil, fights free radical damage, brightens and rejuvenates skin - Bakuchiol, a natural compound obtained from an edible seed of Indian origin, which promotes collagen and elastin - Willowbark Extract, a natural salicylic acid that combats acne and reduces redness - Willowherb, a natural skin-calming botanical - Jojoba Seed, a natural moisturizer that improves skin softness and reduced the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles Now, I’m not a tea drinker at all, but I love the smell of this mask: it smells fresh, clean, natural. Because this guy sat in my air conditioned bedroom all night, it had a cool and soft clay-like consistency, which was a real pleasure to slather on . I left the mask on for about 45 minutes maybe, during which time it dried on my face, however not in any uncomfortable way. I was afraid it would be uncomfortable washing this guy off since it has become dry, but it so wasn’t - as soon as it touched water it totally softened up and melted off Though my skin wasn’t softer it looked smoother and brighter, my pores were way less noticeable and I had this amazing glow to my face!. This one is such a winner, guys. I would definitely repurchase (for the smell and lovely green color alone 😂) 💚 Has anyone tried this guy? What did you think?

Sharing a quick comparison of my favorite masks of the moment 🤗bliss Pore Patrol Detox Four Clay Souffle Mask: Kaolin clay, witch hazel, willow bark extract, glycolic acid. I ADORE the silky, soufflé texture of this mask! This is super creamy and does not feel drying at all. The clay and willow bark detoxes pores, and my face feels so smooth after masking. It's also super affordable at only $13 at Target, who is having a BOGO half off sale right now on Bliss. This mask has the best texture of the 4, but does the least for cutting down on oil production. 💕Bliss Mighty Marshmallow Mask: Olive Fruit Oil, abscorbic acid, marshmallow root extract. The whipped, foamy classic! I haven't noticed any brightening effects with this, but this is my favorite mask for clarifying and hydration. 💧laneige Mini Pore Waterclay Mask: Kaolin clay, sea silt, peppermint extract. This is a liquid clay mask with the coolest, most refreshing finish. This mask leaves my skin the smoothest for longest out of the 4 and does a decent job of reducing oil production. 🍇caudalie Instant Detox Mask: Bentonite clay, grape fruit extract, papaya extract, coffee extract. This is a beautiful and light pink clay mask that dries quickly - takes only 5 minutes for a fast detox. It clears out my pores and my skin just feels perky after using this, like taking a caffeine shot. This one works the fastest but is also the most drying of the 4.
