Amazing skin soothing serum

One of the best soothing serums ever! Fight me! The Krave - Great Barrier Relief
is a skin soothing serum that restores your skin barrier while also evening out your complexion. It’s one of my all time favorite products from Krave Beauty, and I’m pretty sure you all know why. It’s nourishing formula contains so many skin beneficial ingredients such as it’s star 10% tamanu oil, safflower oil, rosehip seed oil, natural moisturizing factors, ceramides, phytosterol, squalane, and niacinamide. These all work in synergy to brighten, repair, and replenish what your skin is currently lacking. This has a lush emollient creamy texture that easily glides and effortlessly sinks into the skin. It leaves behind a slight dewy finish but it’s not greasy or heavy feeling at all. This does have that earthy pungent scent that’s associated with tamanu oil but I quite like it. There aren’t enough words to describe how much I love this serum. I’ve used it in so many times when my skin’s being reactive and sensitive rather it be from an allergic reaction to over exfoliating my skin. It just works and works quickly to help soothe any form of irritation my skin’s feeling. Not only does it soothe, but with consistent use, I’ve seen my skin tone become brighter and more even. That’s thanks to the rosehip seed oil and niacinamide in the formula. It’s also helped diminish the amount of breakouts I get as well as reduced the redness around my cheeks. I would like to say that this would be great for all skin types but there are those who are sensitive to tamanu oil so remember to patch test before trying anything new to reduce the risk of a reaction. Overall, I love this serum and it will be a forever repurchase for me. I’ve already gone through two bottles and plan to repurchase two more to have as backups in case of any skin emergencies. It’s just the best to bring my skin back to normal from any reaction. Feel free to share your thoughts on this below. Do you guys love it as much as I do? Rating: 5/5 🌟 #CherieCreator #KraveBeauty

Niacinamide Highlight ✨
I have sensitive combo skin that is acne prone and lately I’ve been loving Niacinamide. Niacinamide is great for large pores, uneven skin tone, fine lines, dullness and early signs of aging. There’s a common myth that it cannot be mixed with Vitamin C but this is not true! Here are my favorites. Naturium Niacinamide $16 for 1 oz Key Ingredients: Niacinamide, Zinc, Hyaluronic Acid, Vitamin E 🌸This serum is a recent favorite for me. I find it highly affordable and effective. It’s a liquidy gel kind of texture that doesn’t leave skin sticky. It also has Zinc which is anti-inflammatory, Hyaluronic Acid and Vitamin E for hydration. This is a definite repurchase for me. Paula’s Choice Niacinamide Booster $44 for 0.67 oz 💕Another one that I enjoy is this booster from Paula’s Choice. This can be used by mixing it with a serum or moisturizer. This is VERY liquidy so it’s probably best to mix prior to application. I do like this and find that it works but I prefer the Naturium one a bit more due to price and texture. They also have a 20% Niacinamide booster which is of course meant to be more effective that I’m curious about. Krave Beauty’s Great Barrier Relief $28 for 1.52 fl oz Key Ingredients: Tamanu Oil, Safflower Oil, Rosehip Oil, Vitamin B3, Ceramide 🌸These ingredients are for skin regeneration, hyperpigmentation, anti-aging, brightening, acne-fighting and generally repairing a damaged skin barrier. This is a favorite serum of mine for healing skin. It is packed with great hydrating ingredients and is a good product for a damaged moisture barrier. This is a thicker serum compared to the others and has lots of hydrating ingredients like sunflower and tamanu oil. This is affordable and will be a repurchase for me. Often times, I use this as a second serum before moisturizing, especially if I’m wearing a mask all day!

I am not made for minimalism: Rate My Routine
So first I have to say the PEACH & LILY - Power Calm Hydrating Gel Cleanser was half off at Ulta and I decided to try it as my morning cleanser. That was a mistake and why I am broken out in these pictures. Pics are no makeup/filter. My skin is normal /dry. It is incredibly reactive. I can’t use any actives not retinol not HA nor any of the acids. I have one age spot because I avoid the sun like a plague and always wear sunscreen and a hat. This is why my skincare system is so simple and focuses on adding moisture. CAUDALIE - Make-Up Removing Cleansing Oil An HG Product. It feels great and makes a nice clean start to the day. Also fragrance free!!!! AM ONLY: fresh - Soy Makeup Removing Face Wash I keep coming back to it because it doesn’t irritate my skin or cause breakouts but I don’t really love it. It works. Meh. PM ONLY: OSEA - Ocean Cleanser I can’t use this every wash because of the lactic acid but it is incredibly effective at making my face glow and getting rid of acne scars and breakouts. I wash my face and then let it sit for two minutes (a cherie trick) and wow does that make a huge difference. It has a distinct smell that takes some getting used to and it produces a tiny bit of foam that you really don’t want to get in your eyes. acwell - Licorice pH Balancing Cleansing Toner I like the way this product feels. My skin feels fresh after I use it. The texture is really thin and it takes a while to absorb. H2O+ - Hydration Sensitive Essence I haven’t decided how I feel about this product yet. I am allergic to the moisturizer and the cleanser in this line. I do like the milky texture and the way it doesn’t lay on my skin but seems to absorb while I am not paying attention. Krave - Great Barrier Relief My great HG love that keeps my face from drying out. Let us never be separated. KINSHIP - Pimple Potion Retinal + Salicylic Acid Acne Treatment is slowly, but surely, getting rid of the milia on my chin. It is this orange-yellow color and has a thick lotiony texture. innisfree - Olive Real Power Cream Ex. A little goes a loooong way. I have struggled to find a moisturizer because I was applying lotion 5-6 times a day and DE isn’t cheap. This is 1/3 of the price and works 4x as well at keeping my face moisturized. It has a pleasant citrus smell and the whipped gel texture is nice. dear, klairs - Fundamental Nourishing Eye Butter This has a really nice creamy but not to thick texture. I use it twice a day and my eye bags have been reduced by 90%. The container is a pain to deal with and dispense product from. AM (Coming Soon) Krave - The Beet Shield How am I doing?

Amazing green tea calming serum
Amazing green tea calming serum
About a month ago or so, I purchased the Beauty of Joseon - Calming Serum : Green Tea + Panthenol on a whim due to the ingredients profile. Little did I know, it’d become one of my favorite serums. It’s a calming, moisturizing, and brightening serum that contains 76.49% green tea leaf water and 2% panthenol. Green tea contains EGCG (catechin) which is composed of tannins and polyphenols. These provide potent antioxidant and skin soothing benefits to the skin by helping to inhibit the synthesis of melanin from UV rays and remove free radicals that promote aging. This in turn helps improve the appearance of sun damaged skin. Other key ingredients in the formula include glycerin, centella asiatica, algae, mugwort, sodium hyaluronate, propolis, betaine, and allantoin. This has a lightweight and runny gel texture that immediately sinks into the skin while also restoring hydration to it. Once absorbed, you’re left with a smooth hydrating layer that just makes your skin look plump and bouncy. I preferred using this mostly during the day to maximize its antioxidant properties but it was also a great supplement to my evening routine as well. This serum quickly became a staple in my routines as it helped keep my skin calm and hydrated. The redness around my cheeks quickly disappeared upon application and my pores throughout the day looked as if they were flattened (smoother). I could even see that I wasn’t producing as much sebum as usual too. As far as brightening effects goes, my skin looked more even toned and less dull. Green tea surprisingly contains a large amount of vitamin c which contributed to how well this provided my skin with a healthy radiance. There’s also no fragrance added to this so there’s no discernible scent which is great for all my sensitive skin folk. Overall, I loved this serum and I’m quite sad to say that I’ve now emptied it. I already plan to repurchase this but I want to try out their other two serums first. Green tea has always been one of my favorite ingredients in skin care but it’s hard finding a serum without heavy fragrances or the right texture for my skin type. This is a winner for me. Have you guys tried this yet? If so, any thoughts? Rating: 5/5 🌟 #CherieCreator #BeautyOfJoseon

Krave Beauty - GBR worth the hype?
Krave Beauty - GBR worth the hype?
I would say.. hell yeah! I can't express how much I fell in love with it once I recieved it. Skin feeling irritated? can't be tamed pimples? Hyperpigmentation? It's a serum that helps work it's way around you skin and fix those problems. The formula is made with a whole bunch of nourishing ingredients and most especially the key ingredient, Tamanu oil. Tamanu Oil - it is a Antioxidant-rich ingredient that helps moisturize the skin while treating and healing skin concerns such as redness, acne, dark spots, age spots, fine lines, wrinkles and dryness. If you feel like cleaning up and repairing your skin barrier this is the way to go, I would reset my skin by cleansing - toner - GBR just because you can also use this for a moisturizer! The sky is the limit with this little guy, kudos to krave for creating such an amazing product 💘

My mini @versed collection 🖤 I wanted to take this time to do two small reviews and a first impressions on these products. REVIEW: ⚡️Just Breathe - Clarifying Serum: I have been using this product for about a month now and wow, the improvement in my acne is incredible. I have very dry/sensitive/acne-prone skin and this serum does an AMAZING job at calming down all my acne, reduces the redness in my skin and I just love how gentle it is on my skin. I will be using this product for a VERY long time. I need to stock up on my few bottles soon. ⚡️ The Shortcut Overnight Facial Peel: Okay so at first I was very skeptical about this product. I wasn’t sure how well this peel would work for me, but then again I’m not familiar with peels because I never bothered to give them a try. Let me tell you.. I am so happy I bought this product. I’ve been using this twice a week for the past 3 weeks and my skin the next morning, is GLOWING. It’s perfect for acne-prone sensitive skin. Another amazing product from Versed that I will re-purchase once I finish this tube. FIRST IMPRESSION: ⚡️Found the Light - Powder w/ Vitamin C ⚡️Stroke of Brilliance- Brightening Serum: I just bought these this past week and had the chance to use them twice so far. With these type of products, you see results with a more consistent/long term use, so nothing was seen immediately, but it didn’t further irritate my acne at all, which makes me very happy. I can already tell I am going to love these two products the longer I use it. What is your favorite versed product? 😍

#SomeByMi is a relatively new brand to me. I’ve only tried one product from them, and that’s their snail truecica mirale repair serum. It’s claims to be a multi functional serum that can brighten, repair skin, fade acne scars, reduce blemishes, and soothe skin. I was initially hooked into their claims when I saw a video of someone using this for 30 days to drastically fade away their deep pitted acne scars. I knew initially that it was probably over dramatized and that a simple serum couldn’t do that within a month. I still bought it anyways due to the claims of reducing blemishes and soothing the skin. This has that familiar slimy gel texture that you can associate with a snail product. It turns into a watery consistency that’s no longer sticky once you start spreading it onto the skin which then almost instantly get absorbs. It dries down to skin like finish that’s not sticky or tacky. The contains a ton of actives like niacinamide, black snail secretion filtrate, trehalose, beta glucan, allantoin, sucrose, adenosine, tea tree, centella asiatica, willow bark extracts, and some botanical extracts. It has a nice ingredients profile but as far as performance, I wasn’t really wowed by it. I experienced some mild hydration, slightly brighter skin, reduction in redness, slightly smaller pores, and no breakouts which are all good in my book but I feel like I was expecting more from this serum. This also did help balance my sebum production a bit during the day. It barely did anything in fading my deeper acne scars though which I kind of expected. This does have a citrus scent due to the bergamot oil if you’re wondering. But luckily, this didn’t irritate my skin whatsoever. I’d say this would be good for oily, combo, and acne prone skin types. Overall, it’s a good serum that can be your all in one if you’re experiencing acne, hyperpigmentation, redness, dryness, or dullness. I enjoyed using it while I had it, but I’m really not sure if I’d repurchase just yet. I’ve used other serums in the same price point that provided the same or even better effects. Have you guys tried this yet? If so, what are your thoughts? Rating: 3/5 🌟 #CherieCreator #SomeByMi

I'm from - Mugwort Essence I got this product because mugwort is known for its calming and anti bacterial properties and I have been having a lot of redness lately. It did help with calming down redness and inflammation. But I was even more impressed about How soft it made my skin!! My skin has never felt this soft before! It took me a couple days too really see a difference but this stuff REALLY works just for plumping and hydrating the skin. Definently reccomemd👍🏼
