Good old oil cleanser & my first cleansing balm
ESTĒE LAUDER - Take It Away Makeup Remover Lotion I got it in holiday gift set. Didn’t expect to be this good. It cleanses all my makeup and eye makeup with a few wipes. Not harsh on skin. Easy to rinse it off. What else do you need in cleanser!? Then i used my philosophy cleanser or clinique liquid soap to rinse all the residues. I’ve never used cleansing balm before and all i hear is how good cleansing balm is. I wanted to try then i met you balm but couldn’t able to buy in my country. So i decided to try cleansing balm from I’m from brand. I saw some reviews raving how good it is than zero cleansing balm. Finger crossed 🤞

Done and New hair serums
I finally pan my Kaminomoto hair serum. Used it every other night. I love the cool sensation and herbal scent. Very watery and doesn’t leave my hair greasy. Maybe bcos this is my first bottle, the result is not visible yet. I would repurchase it if I don’t have the urge to try Ordinary hair serum. KAMINOMOTO - Super Strength Hair Serum (Gold)

The excitement was not here anymore with other new releases and long wait but i’m happy that i purchased it. - very buttery - very pigmented - very blendable - very shimmery - very unique 😉 PAT McGRATH LABS - Mothership Eyeshadow Palette

The softest lipsticks but...
Swatches in Girls Trip, First Kiss, Interview, Graduation day I bought girls trip and love how it feels on my lips. Very soft velvet texture and non drying. It doesn’t last long tho. Bcos of texture, i was obsessed and bought First kiss, interview, graduation day, rendezvous, promotion day. I was so excited but it was disappointment. Interview and graduation day look so similar on my hands, looks identical on my lips. Plus they don’t look good me 😒 Promotion day leans more to pink rather than classic red outside. I didn’t even swatch the last two. I gave them away.

The BEST lash serum!!!
#Evenvy - Lash Conditionner[products]#[FiveStars] is amazing!! i started using it in July. Within a couple weeks I could see a difference but around the 3 month mark (the photos) was the biggest difference! I get so many compliments on my lashes now and always get asked if they’re extension! When I put mascara on I use a super thin coat of either use the #EvEnvy - Fiber Mascara[products]#[FourStars] or the L'ORÉAL - Telescopic Mascara just to thicken my lashes a bit. The before photo is super old from like 2015- it’s the only photo of my lashes i could find and I have 3 coats of my fave mascara back then.
How to choose the best nail shape? My answer is...
Love them or hate them, the staying power of the French manicure is undeniable. Nail artist Gina Edwards tells Allure they probably fell out of favor for a while because of their lack of creativity. "Most people viewed the French as a classic and kept true to the white tips," she explains. "It became stale, mundane." However, as the French manicure sticks around in 2020, it has spawned into dozens of different colorful designs with the same timeless DNA: arcs of color along the tips of nails. (New York City-based nail artist Miss Pop may or may not have predicted this in December 2019.) Genius nail artists have shown off their unexpected takes on Instagram, with half-moons in neon, tie-dye, and eggs — yes, eggs, specifically sunny side up. With salons across my country closed (or open with new safety parameters) due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the French manicure has proven to be the perfect nail art option. They work on both long and short nails (with the latter rising in popularity due to people seeking out the most hygienic nail length possible). Plus, the tips can be painted onto nude or bare nails, so you can let your nails grow out without your nails looking awkward and having to run back to the salon for another appointment. On this list, you're sure to find at least one French manicure trend that speaks to your aesthetic. Show your favorite to your nail artists at your next appointment or experiment with painting them on yourself. If you're ready to take on your tips yourself, first you need to put the polish brush on the center of your nail and make a small dash. Then, make arcs on each side of the nail that connect to it. "If you go from one side to the other, one side is going to be thick, and the other side is going to be thin because you're going to offload all the polish onto one side. Then, you'll ace your half-moon tips. My new pick: 1. V-Shaped Tips No matter what your nail shape may be — almond, coffin, round, square — you can finesse your French manicure from rounded silvers around the tips to sharp Vs to emphasize the same area. Mix and Match Several weeks ago, i suddenly realized that i don't have to limit my French manicure to a single shade. I shouldn't have to settle on one design either. Adorn each finger with a different look. It's so interesting and i like it!! Negative Space Instead of a solid line of color, consider a thin frame around the typical half-moon area. I learnt it from Los Angeles-based nail artist Hang Nguyen who outlined her French manicure with classic rainbow colors while Le and Nyah went with neons. Nyah also tried out the trend with gradients of orange and blue.
Kiehl’s - Extreme hair growth
If you clicked on this post, you are probably suffering from thinning hair or you know someone who have thinning hair or you might be kind of freaking out that you might be losing your hair. No worries, let me share my hair growth story and products that helps me with my concerns. I have a bit thin hair around my hairline that shows through whenever my hair gets longer when I put it back in a bun or pony tail, people can actually kind of see my scalp which is always depressing. Especially when I see myself in a picture, that area specifically catches all my attention. Kiehl's - Amino Acid Shampoo According to dermatologist, this shampoo actually works very well for hair growth especially for people who has alopecia (which is genetical). I do have a friend who have used this system and her hair grew back. I used to have thick hair when I was in high school. I suffered terrible hair loss in my last year of college and it suddenly became an issue for me. I tried this system because of my friend and it works well for me. The effect was not immediate but I do see a lot of regrowth on my hairlines. Kiehl's - Amino Acid Conditioner I didn’t noticed much in the first month of trying it, but I got this one on discount in a Duo, so I decided to use it up before buying new ones. It was about 6 months, I started to get compliment on my hair after continuously using this product. I came to notice that my hair does look completely different than last year. It was shiny, full, and glory. I also feel that my scalp is healthier. I believe this products is one of the lines that does what it says. I agree it is a little bit expensive, but that’s because they put in all of the right ingredients to help you have thicker and more luscious hair.

10-step Korean method
* Please know that this is NOT NECESSARY and I’m sharing as someone who has done a small amount of research regarding the topic. I personally refuse to go without a double cleanse, tone, mask treatments (3 times a week), treat, moisturize & SPF. __________________ The 10-Step is more than a routine—it's a lifestyle that has become a global phenomenon, grounded in Korea's cultural obsession with healthy skin and backed by decades of scientific advancement. * It's not about having more products than you can count, but rather about having the RIGHT products that do the right things, and using them in the right order. Having what works for YOU is important. Again, this is NOT necessary! 1) Remove makeup & sunscreen with an oil cleanser. I use a balm or an oil. I recommend huangjisoo - Pure Perfect Cleansing Oil 2) Follow up with a water based cleanser - INDIE LEE - Brightening Cleanser is one of my favorites. 3) Exfoliate - Do not exfoliate more than twice a week or you can damage your skin barrier. I have a few I enjoy YOUTH TO THE PEOPLE - Yerba Mate Resurfacing Energy Facial & The Ordinary - AHA 30% + BHA 2% Peeling Solution as well as TATCHA - The Deep Cleanse Exfoliating Cleanser 4) Tone - I personally love a good hydrating toner. Toners are great at removing any residue that may have been left from your cleanser as well as preps the skin to effectively absorb the products to follow. INDIE LEE - CoQ-10 Toner is one of my absolute faves as well as YOUTH TO THE PEOPLE - Kombucha + 11% AHA Exfoliation Power Toner 5) Essence - the right essences will be lightweight and packed with a blend of hydrating, anti-aging and complexion enhancing ingredients. Some of my faves are TATCHA - The Essence Plumping Skin Softener & CAUDALIE - Vinoperfect Brightening Glycolic Essence Also this is when I’d add my HA The Ordinary - Hyaluronic Acid 2% + B5 6) Treatments - this is where your specific needs come into play. From treating hyperpigmentation, dark spots, acne and fine-lines, this will be where you add those targeted products. Vitamin C, AHA/BHA serums, retinol...etc. Medik8 - Crystal Retinal CAUDALIE - Vinoperfect Radiance Serum The Brightening Solution and a good vitamin c are my must haves! Be sure to know what can safely be used together. 7) Mask - following the K-beauty method this is when they would add a sheet mask. I rarely sheet mask and use more topical masks. 8 - Eye cream - I personally don’t have any favorites. 9) Moisturize - Yes everyone should moisturize. Pick one that suits your skincare needs (no fragrances or essential oils) 10) SPF- EVERY SINGLE DAY!!! Let me know your thoughts regarding the 10-step method. #CherieCreator

In fact, if you strip your oily skin of their natural inclination for oil – It will only produce more oil, causing you to break out considerably worse or end up significantly oilier than you started.Yes, by stripping your skin of oils, you only make more oil on your skin.So the solution?
