My top 3 favorite cruelty free/vegan products!
🍃My top 3 favorite cruelty free/vegan products! 🍃review of farmacy eye cream- The farmacy dew it all total eye cream is a moisturizing eye cream that helps minimize signs of stress and fatigue while delivering hydration to help soothe and nourish the eye area! It is great to solve fine lines, wrinkles, dullness, and uneven texture and loss of firmness and elasticity. The texture is very thick but lightweight and very creamy! I absolutely love using this eye cream and I got it about a year ago from a friend recommending it to me. It is very hydrating and didn’t break me out, but I saw great results in my under eyes after using it for a while. I would recommend this to others because it is a great overall eye cream and can be used with all skin types! It is worth the $38 for .5oz because I know a lot of you will really love this product as much as I did! 🍃review of sol de Janeiro sunscreen-The Sol De Janeiro my sol stick SPF 50 is a sheer SPF 50 stick that’s a must have for lips, nose, hands, edges of swimwear, and tattoos! This is good for oily, dry, normal, and combo skin types. I love using this in the summer, and the smell is amazing! This can also be solutions for dryness and uneven skin tone. The texture is very thick and smooth on the skin! It glides right on the skin with each swipe enriched with body-wrapping, skin smoothing goodness. I absolutely love using this sunscreen and am definitely gonna repurchase when I run out. I have tried a few other Sol De Janeiro body products and have loved all of them and am in love with the scent, so about 7 months ago right before summer I picked this up from Sephora and used it almost everyday of the summer! It is very moisturizing and hydrating and didn’t break me out. I would recommend this for anyone looking for an awesome face sunscreen that has amazing ingredients like cupuaçu butter, açaí oil, and coconut oil! It is really worth purchasing this before summer and for any vacations! It is $26 for .8oz of product! 🍃review of lush bubblegum lip scrub-The lush bubblegum lip scrub! This sugary treat was made for you! With a sweet, candy-like flavor that's true to its name, Bubblegum is one delightful lip scrub. Fine castor sugar gives lips a gentle exfoliation and hydrating organic jojoba oil leaves them feeling soft, smooth and supple. The best part? Licking off the delicious sugar once you're through! This can be solutions for dry and cracked lips. The texture feels exactly like sugar and feels great on my lips! I really enjoy using this lip scrub. A friend gave this to me as a present about 7 months ago and use it all the time, it does a great job! It is hydrating and didn’t break me out! It has great results as well, it made my lips much smoother after I used it! I would totally recommend this to others because of it has great ingredients like organic jojoba oil and castor sugar, and they don’t test on animals! It is really worth purchasing because it is so cheap and does an amazing job, it is $10.95 for 0.8oz! 🍃are all three brands cruelty free- yes farmacy is all cruelty free, and has amazing skincare products! Sol de Janeiro is also cruelty free and sells amazing body care and hair care! And lastly lush is an amazing store with everything body and face, and they are very dedicated to being cruelty free/vegan! 🍃do I only use cruelty free products- I keep trying and trying to eliminate brands that are not cruelty free! One of my favorite brands right now is fresh and they aren't cruelty free, so I still can’t decide what do about them! I support each and every cruelty free/vegan brand and I believe that each and every brand should do the same! I love my animals!SOL de Janeiro - My Sol Stick SPF 50

HOW TO: AT HOME “LIP INJECTION” (NO MAKEUP)
Hey everyone! I’m new here, so please excuse any mistakes in my first post! So basically, I had been weighing up getting lip fillers until I saw how to get the exact same results at home, and for a fraction of the price. *disclaimer* I blurred my acne in these photos because I’m self conscious, but the lips have not been touched!!! To achieve this look, you need this amazing serum LA ROCHE-POSAY - Hyalu B5 Pure Hyaluronic Acid Face Serum The key ingredient here is the hyaluronic acid. Apply the serum to the lips, rub in and let it dry. You will see your lips plump almost immediately. To keep this serum locked in, use a heavy balm or lipstick. In this picture, I am just wearing paw paw cream Dr. PAWPAW - Real Paw Paw Ointment I recommend using a gentle lip scrub such as LUSH - Bubblegum Lip Scrub to prime your lips and make them soft! To keep them nice and soft, make sure you moisturise them in your daily routine!! I use Avène - Skin Recovery Cream don’t forget to put sunscreen on them, too! Some balms come with sunscreen included. I have very sensitive skin, and I’ve had no problems with these products. It’s that easy! Bye bye lip injections 😊
Bubblegum Lip Scrub
Lush hasn’t made many products that have disappointed me. This unfortunately is one that did. First off, I never understand when brands instruct the user to “lick off” the excess lip scrub. Just because it’s edible doesn’t mean you should! Saliva naturally dries lips, so why are brands instructing consumers to immediately dry out their lips again after scrubbing them?! This scrub smells amazing and it does a good enough job at exfoliating. I docked stars because it leaves my lips feeling more sticky than hydrated after using. I wish that it would leave my lips more soft and supple but instead it just leaves them feeling a bit raw and tacky. The packaging is very cute and it’s a very nice idea, the ingredients just don’t mesh well together IMO. It definitely isn’t the cheapest scrub either. I wouldn’t recommend this sadly.

Farmacy; mini brand review
Farmacy Beauty has been one of my favorite skincare brands at Sephora for quite some time now. I’ve tried about half of their products and for the most part I’m really happy with them. FARMACY - Clean Bee Ultra Gentle Facial Cleanser - Amazing for oily skin! A really simple gel cleanser that gets all the dirt and sebum off the face. Foams up really well without stripping. Mild scent. FARMACY - Deep Sweep - An absolute must if you want to look into acne treatments. It has a water consistency that absorbs well into the skin. It helped reduce acne, appearance of pores, and inflammation. It does kind of smell like mouth wash though... FARMACY - Dew It All Total Eye Cream - This did absolutely nothing for me. It’s just a hydrating eye cream. It’s not worth the 30 some dollars I paid for it. It’s also hard to get the last little bits out of the container. Not worth the price. FARMACY - Honey Drop Lightweight Moisturizer - It is a very lightweight gel moisturizer but it didn’t blow me away. I remember being super underwhelmed with this product and I stopped using it halfway through only to pick it up later down the line and feel the same way. There are better on the market. FARMACY - Bright On Massage-Activated Vitamin C Mask - Did nothing for me FARMACY - Honey Potion Renewing Antioxidant Hydration Mask - Very hydrating and very fun! It’s a thick mask that warms when rubbed into the face. If you have dry skin you’ll love how nourishing this is. FARMACY - Green Clean Makeup Removing Cleansing Balm - I absolutely love this for removing make up. It has a little bit of a slip to it but it rinses off really well and doesn’t leave your face greasy. It gets all the stubborn eyeliner and mascara off easily. FARMACY - Daily Greens Oil-Free Gel Moisturizer with Moringa and Papaya - I love this for oily skin! The gel formula is very hydrating and sinks into the skin without feeling too heavy. Works great under make up! #CheriePartner
Take a peek inside my Skin Cabinets
Since my husband decided to use the guest bath I have claimed both cabinets....and all my products still don’t fit in them!! I’ll share my bathroom sink area in another post, along with my mini fridge and backup shelf. My fingers are tired from tagging all the products right now 🙈 Let me know if there are any you’re curious about. I believe most products you can find already reviewed on my page. But if there is one not posted about, let me know and I’d be happy to share my thoughts with you. Some of my must haves are: Farmacy Beauty- Honeymoon Glow, Better Daze Ahead & Cheer Up Indie Lee - CO-Q10 Toner and & Brightening Wash Medik8- Crystal Retinal & HYDR8 + B5 Caudalie - Radiance Serum Sunscreen! Sunscreen! Sunscreen! Youth to The People - Superberry Mask, Energy Facial The Ordinary- Niacinamide & Hyaluronic & the Facial Peel Elemis - Suerfood Mask Many of these have been repurchases. If a product is sitting out on my counter or in my cabinets, I’m enjoying using them. I have baskets of products that didn’t work so well for me but I keep them for friends to try or to create fun texture art. It’s taken me at least an entire year to gain the collection I have. I had subscribed to many subscription boxes so a good majority of products came to me that way. I haven’t received PR in a long time and the few items I did receive were from some small companies. I don’t mind receiving PR/gifts I just am very picky about what I will use so sometimes the offers don’t jive with them. Let’s see your skincare cabinet ☺️ @CreateOnCherie @CheriePick
SUN CARE SAFETY!
HAPPY NATIONAL SUNSCREEN DAY! ⠀ ⠀ Also known as “Don’t Fry Day” ⠀ ⠀ Wear your sunscreen my friends! Please! ⠀ ⠀ What is a sunburn? ⠀ ⠀ Sunburn is a radiation burn, caused when the ultraviolet (UV) rays of sunlight damage DNA in the upper layer of skin cells.⠀ ⠀ The sunburn will eventually heal, but some of the surviving cells will have mutations that escape repair. These cells could eventually become cancerous.⠀ ⠀ Safety Tips: ⠀ ⠀ - Be sure to choose a sunscreen that has an SPF of 30 or higher, is water-resistant and offers broad-spectrum protection.⠀ - Apply sunscreen at least 30 minutes before going in the sun.⠀ - When possible, seek shade.⠀ - Cover up with hats, sunglasses and UV-protective clothing.⠀ ⠀ Myth: The higher the SPF, the longer I can stay out in the sun⠀ ⠀ This is a common mistake. In reality, SPF 30 blocks 97% of ultraviolet rays, while SPF 50 blocks out 98%. ⠀ ⠀ Myth: Spray sunscreen is just as good as lotion ⠀ ⠀ WRONG! Use lotion, then use spray! For sunscreen to work properly, it still should be rubbed onto the skin to avoid missing streaks of skin, which can happen when you use spray. ⠀ ⠀ Zinc oxide is a better sunscreen ingredient, as it offers the best UVA protection of all current sunscreen chemicals, and titanium dioxide is second best.⠀ ⠀ I use: ⠀ ⠀ @sunbum - Clear Zinc when casually in the sun⠀ ⠀ @zinkasunscreen - fun for kids, comes in all different colors, I usually put it on when we go to the lake. (5% zinc) However, this does not have any where near the amount of zinc needed to protect the skin well. ⠀ @neutrogena ALL OVER MY FACE! also I put a layer on my upper lips because it’s prone to Melesma. (21.5% zinc) ⠀ Others that are great: ⠀ ⠀ @naturallyseriousskin Mineral Sun Defense Moisturizer SPF 30 (25% zinc) ⠀ ⠀ @thesunscreencompany CyberDerm Simply Zinc Ultra Transparent Sunscreen Lotion SPF 50 (25% zinc) ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ I use the Sol Stick for my whole face to keep some SPF on my lips, and it feels like it hydrates the skin. My skin is so soft, and the smell... glorious! Even if this product over have SPF I would still massage it all my skin! @soldejaneiro ⠀ ⠀ ⠀
I love the entire line of Sol de Janeiro products! The scent takes you to a tropical island somewhere and I just love it! Earth Harbor Superfood Oil is amazing the scent is a little different, but boiiii does it feel good on the skin. The Higher Education acne pads are great for after workouts. I always leave them in my gym bag and wipe my face after my workout. Ghost democracy is bomb AF! This Fluid Gate Hyaluronic Acid is the best hyaluronic out there! It leaves the skin matte and honestly FLAWLESS!
Saturday skin brand spotlight!
The Saturday skin pretty pop probiotic power whipped cream is a soft and luxurious whipped cream with probiotics activated by probiotics for healthy and radiant looking skin! It can be solutions for fine lines, wrinkles, dryness, loss of firmness and elasticity. The texture of this is so creamy and thick and it feels like you are putting whipped cream on your face, it is so soft and dense and does a great job at moisturizing my face! I have been using this for about 3 months and I purchased it from a friend recommending it to me, and I fell in love. It didn’t make me break out, it’s so so hydrating, and I saw great results in my skins moisture level! I would definitely recommend this to anyone looking for an amazing moisturizer for dry or oily skin. It is more on the pricier side but is so worth it! This is why this is one of my favorite products from Saturday skin! Another one of my favorite products the Saturday skin wide awake brightening eye cream is a hydrating eye cream with date seed extract that illuminates and refreshes the eye area! It can help dryness, dark circles, and puffiness under the eyes. The texture of this is a very lightweight cream, that is so cooling under the eyes but moisturizes so nice! I purchased this eye cream about 3 months ago in a set with 3 other products from Saturday skin because when this set came out I knew I had to get it, and when I tried it I immediately fell in love. I use it so often and will definitely repurchase after I run out! It is so hydrating, didn’t break me out, and I saw great results in my dark circles when I woke up the morning after using it. I would certainly recommend this to others because it is so amazing and really helps with dark circles and feels so light and creamy under the eyes! It is $46 for 1.01oz which is a great size because you literally only need a little dot to cover both under eyes! One of my least favorite products from the brand is the Saturday skin bright potion probiotic power serum it is a potent serum enriched with encapsulated probiotics activated by probiotics creating a powerful solution for luminous and healthy looking skin! This serum can be used for normal, dry, oily, and combination skin types. This can be solutions for acne prone skin, dryness, and fine lines, wrinkles, dullness, and uneven texture! The texture of this is a thick gel/cream that has little probiotics in it that dissolve in your skin! I have used this for about 3 months and got it in a set with other mini Saturday skin products and really havent seen any results with this serum! This serum didn’t break me out but is really no better then any of my other serums. This product is definitely not worth purchasing for the price of $51 for 1oz because it is not worth it when there are way better cheaper versions out there! I really do love most Saturday skin products though and would definitely recommend trying out this incredible brand, just because some products didn’t work out for me they may be amazing for you! I found this brand about 6 months just from all the hype on instagram! They then came out with a set with four of there products in mini size on Sephora and I immediately got it, it was very well priced as well and I fell in love with all there products!SATURDAY SKIN - Wide Awake Brightening Eye Cream with Avocado SATURDAY SKIN - Pretty Pop Probiotic Power Whipped Cream SATURDAY SKIN - Bright Potion Probiotic Power Serum
SATURDAY SKIN-Bright Potion Probiotic Power Serum
I am taking you through my empties, I have been saving these for quite some time, so here is my voting system: . For this post, all products are good, but some work better for my skin than others. I will kick off with the products in the 1st pic: . 💖 dermalogica Dynamic Skin Recovery Broad Spectrum SPF 50* - my fav SPF to date. Beautiful formula, for colder months layers really well with other products, fabulous under makeup, no breakouts, nor irritation, contains many antioxidants and anti-ageing ingredients. Absolutely gorgeous. Highly recommend. . ☺️ jurlique Herbal Recovery Signature Serum* - a very hydrating serum, watery-like texture, made of botanical ingredients to lift and firm the skin. I would say it gives luminosity and it’s definitely a skin replenisher. Can pill at times, this can be avoided when layered with a moisturiser only. . ☺️ alumiermd Brightening Eye Cream* - a medical grade eye cream that contains stellar ingredients such as Matrixyl Synthe’ 6 (a superstar ingredient for my face, brilliant for elasticity), mushroom extract and peptides. It’s a nourishing product, that gives a beautiful radiance on the eye area, however, I feel this works better for those whom suffer with dark circles (I used this exclusively for 2.5 months), my eye area looked nice, but I have tried other eye creams performed slightly better for me. I do know people that suffer with dark circles and were very impressed with this eye cream. . 💖mgc.derma CBD Active Firming Clay Mask*, a fantastic clay mask, unlike any others I have tried, leaves my skin very luminous and nourished, however this is very pricey, and not something I could easily replace (the only con).
dermalogica-Dynamic Skin Recovery SPF50 Moisturizer
I'd share some products I'm loving at the moment, that just so happen to colour coordinate arbonne RE9 Advanced Prepwork gel eye masks- these masks are great to cool and de-puff my under eye area. herbivorebotanicals Phoenix oil - this oil is gorgeous, it helps skin regenerate overnight so you wake up with smooth, firm skin. a.florenceskincare Super Serum- this beautiful emulsion serum is packed full of amazing ingredients like Vitamin C, Ceramides and Hyaluronic Acid. It really lives up to its name! drunkelephant C-Tango Multivitamin Eye Cream - this cream is basically sleep in a bottle! It's amazing at perking up, smoothing out and waking up the under eye area. evytechnology Daily UV Face Mousse SPF 30 - you all know how much I love this magic mousse SPF! paulaschoice C15 Super Booster serum - my current favourite Vitamin C serum
DRUNK ELEPHANT-C-Tango Multivitamin Eye Cream
Herbal Dynamics Mango & Green Tea Undereye Mask
The Mango & Green Tea undereye plumping mask from Herbal Dynamics was gifted to me a few months ago. I use it sporadically. It is targeted at people with tired, sallow, or dull under eyes in need of brightening. This product is meant to plump and brighten the under eye area and help reduce darkness. It is a thick cream that smells of mangos when you apply it. It is rather heavy on the area but it helps it stay in place. When I apply this, the area tingles slightly but doesn’t sting. I usually apply a thick enough layer that you can see the product and don’t rub it in. After using this, the area feels cooled and looks a little brighter, but it doesn’t appear to be too plump. I have used it numerous times and never feel it doesn’t anything crazy impressive. It’s not bad but I probably wouldn’t spend money on it when there are caffeine products that seem to work better for me. The fine lines near my eyes looked exactly the same after use. After using this a bit, I noticed that it has a sort of false bottom so only the top half is filled with product and the bottom is empty. I found this disappointing, although it’s clearly based on volume which I didn’t look at. Just know that if you buy this, the whole tub is not full. It has a bit of shimmer to it which remains on when you wipe the mask off which I don’t like. I don’t think shimmer counts as brightening but maybe that’s just me. If you’re looking for a brightening eye mask, I would probably look around for some others. This retails for $20/15ml. Not totally unreasonable but also could probably find something a little less expensive.
Herbal Dynamics Beauty-MANGO & GREEN TEA FIRMING EYE MASK
farmacy GreenClean I can’t stress enough how amazing this stuff is at gently and effectively breaking down all oil, sunscreen and make up (including the most stubborn waterproof mascara) then rinsing away without a tace of residue. . dewitall I am most sensitive around my eye area and with the skin issues I’ve been experiencing, this little guy has been a dependable delight in the face of adversity. . honeybutter This all natural lipbalm is beyond reproach. Not too waxy or oily, intensely moisturizing with a beautiful soft sheen finish. sheetmasks are made in Korea; the birth place of sheet masks. I love that these coconut water infused gel masks hug the contours of the face for a far superior fit than traditional sheet masks
FARMACY-Dew It All Total Eye Cream
Boscia Indigo Eye Cream and some other goodies. I think I already love it! The cream is a light purple colour which is known to brighten up dull areas of the face. It also has tiny little sparkles in it that work to reflect light and brighten the under eye area! I wore it under my makeup yesterday and my under eyes looked bright and stayed hydrated all day. Loving it so far!
