Erno Laszlo detoxifying cleans
Erno Laszlo detoxifying cleansing oil is great for all skin types. I have oily acne prone skin and at first was skeptical using an oil cleanser but it’s fantastic!!!! It is lightweight but it deeply cleanses my face. See cleansing oil should be applied onto dry skin using a circular motion especially if you have make up on your face. Rinse or follow with another cleanser. It controls my oily skin which in turn helps with acne. The charcoal it contains as well as sea water and grapeseed oil help restore my skin and leaves it healthier. This cleanser is free of parabens, sulfates and phthalates. Although I have only tried the detoxifying cleansing oil Erno Laszlo sells a black bar which is often used as a double cleanse with this product. The oil in the 64.6 ounce bottle is sold for $58 at Sephora. Although this is pricey for a cleanser it definitely works on my skin. No irritation and it removes all of my makeup. My pores are clearer and my face looks and feels healthy. 👍👍 I first started this product when I got a sample size and I am working my way through it. I I definitely plan on purchasing the bigger bottle when it’s finished because my skin hasn’t felt this good in a long time.

A+ Lip Mask
A+ Lip Mask
Over the years I’ve tried so many lip products varying in price but Laneige Sleeping Mask takes the cake! In the winter months I am especially prone to dry chapped lips both from the cold weather as well as the dry heat I have in my home. I also get cracks in the corners which takes so long to heal with regular Chapstick or lip repair sticks. I put this sleeping mask on and after a few nights of use my dry and chapped lips are repaired!!!😃 The mask leaves a slight sticky feeling on your lips when applied. I find that if my lips are in bad shape a more generous amount of the product is needed. This mask lasts a long time! It’s a great buy for the money. I use an applicator to apply it to my lips to keep it sterile and ensure I don’t waste any. It is available in three scents for $20 at Sephora. Enriched with vitamin c and antioxidants as well as hyaluronic acid to lock in moisture. The Lanage Sleeping mask is paraben free and good for all skin types. It is an Allure beauty winner and I love it! I highly recommend you try this product as I’m sure it will be flying off the shelves for the holidays!!!! I give this five ⭐️ ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ in my review today.

ID RATHER GET COAL THAN
ID RATHER GET COAL THAN
ID RATHER GET COAL THAN.... Krave - Great Barrier Relief this product is fragrance free but wow it smells BAD! This product is a soothing skin serum that aims to restore your damaged skin barrier. It contains tamanu oil, saffflower oil and rosehip seed oil. Tamanu oil has skin regenerative properties. Safflower and rosehip oil have skin nourishing benefits. It also contains ceramides and squalane. This has a super lightweight consistency and soaks into the skin so easily. I just can’t get over the smell long enough to see benefits. This product is great for anyone with dry skin, redness, sensitivity, stress and hyperpigmentation. GBR is 100% recyclable ♻️ I like the transparency of this company a lot. I will be giving this product away!

Ponds Hydrate + Firm Sheet Mask (Not Listed)
Ponds Hydrate + Firm Sheet Mask (Not Listed)
I love adding hydration to my skin with sheet masks. Over the years I have tried many masks and don’t discriminate due to cost. Ponds hydrate and firm mask comes with a price tag of $2 at Walmart. My mom always took her makeup off with Ponds cold cream so I figured “why not try it.” . she always loved the brand. First of all I liked how the mask felt when taking it out of the package. It was a tad difficult to unfold at first but It was nice and saturated and easy to smooth on my skin. The fit of the mask was off and the holes to big which was disappointing. The main ingredients are agave extract, hyaluronic acid and collagen. I left the mask on for fifteen minutes and worked the extra product into my face, neck and décolleté. My skin felt hydrated and smooth. The agave did leave a slightly sticky feeling on my face which I didn’t care for. I ended up rinsing the residue off. All in all I was a bit disappointed in the product and glad I only spent $2 for it. Ponds also makes a hydrate and glow sheet mask which is in enriched with papaya extract and vitamin B3 and E which I may try. Overall I give this product a three star rating ⭐️⭐️⭐️ due to the fit and the feel of the mask afterward.

True Glow Makes my Skin Glow
True Glow Makes my Skin Glow
I started using the Conair true glow facial brush to help remove dirt and make up from my face. At first I was a little skeptical because my whole life I’ve been washing my face with my hands or a washcloth and I was worried about irritation from the device. What I liked about this facial brush was that it had three speed settings so I could decide what was safe for my face. Having sensitive skin, I prefer to use the low setting and find it gets the same job done as a medium setting. I also thought it was great that I could take it in shower and use the cleanser of my choice. True Glow Comes with two facial cleansing brushes and a charging stand and costs about $45. This is a lot less expensive than some of the other facial brushes out on the market. Since using this device I have noticed a significant difference in the size of my pores. They have diminished in size and my skin is feeling softer than ever! Being in my 50’s has caused major changes in my skin. It is drier and the texture is tougher. This system has really helped make my skin softer and brighter. I couldn’t be happier. Overall I give this five stars.⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ it is easy to use and effective. Great product Conair. 👍👍CONAIR - True Glow Sonic Facial Beauty Kit

I always loved the products I have by Elemis so when I received this one at the QVC Beauty Bash I was very excited. This eye recovery cream has really helped to transform my eyes. I am prone to dark shadows and definitely notice an improvement. My eyes appear brighter and well rested. The peptide 4 cream replenishes the lost moisture and improves hydration which leaves the skin firmer. I’m in my 50’s so loss of elasticity is a major concern of mine This cream contains coconut and jojoba oils and is good for all skin types. It is safe to us am and pm and only a pea size is necessary so although it is pricey it’ll last a long time. Make sure to be gentle around the eye contour and to use your ring finger when applying products. I was lucky enough to receive mine as a goody bag gift but you can find this product for $50 at QVC. Com or purchase it directly from Elemis. I highly recommend you try this and see improvement in fine lines and wrinkles as well as brightness. Another ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️’s from me for Elemis Eye Recovery Cream.

Thankful - PUR Lipstick
Thankful - PUR Lipstick
Hello lovies! Thanksgiving is less than a week away and I am so grateful to have PÜR - X Barbie Lipstick in my collection. When the fall season comes along I love wearing berry shades and I have been rocking this lippie for the last month! If you’re scared of the glitter - don’t be it’s just a topper and then applies the color alone. My trick to make dark shades last longer... dab some translucent powder over the final lip application. Trust me, your lip color is not going anywhere after gobbling down some turkey and pie! I’m so grateful PUR collaborated with Barbie to make this remarkable collection! Does anyone else have this shade or one of the PURxBarbie items?

frank body - Cinna-buns Scrub Limited edition, cinnamon bun smell, and heaven on the skin, what’s not to love? it also helps fight acne, help heal acne scars and marks, and makes my skin so smooth and hydrated! I haven’t been doing the best lately at taking care of my body, but this scrub hit the spot — dry arms and legs and hands are now hydrated and exfoliated and I smell like a chai latte. I’m excited to see how it helps the stretch marks on my thighs! It’s already helping the acne marks on the back of shoulders.

Good Molecules Niacinamide Brightening Toner
Good Molecules Niacinamide Brightening Toner
My first foray into niacinamide (better late than never, right?) was when Good Molecules gifted me the Niacinamide Brightening Toner back in September! I’ve heard a ton of good things about niacinamide and I’ve always wanted to try it out, so when I received this in the mail I was beyond stoked. Since then I have been using this pretty consistently for around 2 months and already I am thinking of repurchasing this baby (spoiler alert: I love it). While niacinamide is a multipurpose ingredient that aims to treat varying skin concerns, the Good Molecules Niacinamide Brightening Toner is an alcohol-free solution that specifically targets dull skin and enlarged pores, using a blend of ingredients (niacinamide, licorice root extract, and vitamin C) to supposedly even out your skintone, and at the same reducing the appearance of pores on the face for a brighter complexion. As this is a toner, the texture is very watery and extremely lightweight - almost like you’re putting water on your skin. Having used this for quite some time, I would think that there’s a significant improvement in my overall skin tone. I struggle with dull skin quite a fair bit (lack of sleep, diet, you get the drift) and I’m always on the lookout for products that can boost my skin tone. I’m really happy to say that this toner does make my skin look a tad brighter - my forehead is no longer lighter than my cheeks! I attribute this to this toner, but it could be a combination of other factors i.e. sitting in an office the entire day LOL. Secondly, I also noticed that the pores around my nose and cheeks have also gotten a little less noticeable. It’s not a significant difference if you don’t scrutinise my face, but I definitely witnessed its effects for myself. One thing I especially love about this toner, more than its effective results, is that it is so easy to incorporate this product into your routine. I’m someone who doesn’t appreciate change in my skincare routine, so introducing new products take a while for me. Having a toner makes it easy because its safer territory to tread on than targeted serums/ampoules/essences. Plus, you can also adjust the “intensity” of the toner by increasing how many layers you would like on your skin, which is useful especially if you’re introducing a new ingredient to your usual routine. Plus, it also helps that this product is crazy affordable at $14 USD for 120ml. That’s seriously a steal - my previous toner from Fresh cost $45 USD for 150ml, which is almost 3 times the price. Coupled with its effective results and how easy it is to incorporate to your skincare routine, I would definitely recommend this product to my friends! In fact, I might repurchase this baby myself when I do run out. My Cherie rating for this would be a definite 5/5 💕 I love this toner! GOOD MOLECULES - Niacinamide Brightening Toner

This mornings routine focusing
This mornings routine focusing on hydration + repair! I’m now on week 3 of Epiduo (BP and Adapalene) and so far, I’m pretty blown away by it. I forgot how quickly Benzoyl Peroxide works on my skin. From the second week, both of my cheeks have been completely clear (they were the areas affected) and PIH is fading at a nice rate, thanks to some supporting products I’ve been using. My chin purged quite quickly (ironically, I only had some closed comedones on that area, so now that looks worse than when I first began) and now continues to go back and forth between clearing up/breaking out. Toleration wise, it’s been easier than I expected given my past experience with Differin. I still have to be careful and cannot use it more than every other night + only applied after moisturiser, but I’ve only experienced mild erythema and some minor flakiness so far. I’m eager to share some B&As but it feels too preemptive! 💧 Cleanse with Glossier Milky Jelly Cleanser - I went back to this when I had my PD flare and it’s been a nice addition in the AM whilst on Epiduo. The texture is just my fave (but I hate that scent). Removed with tepid water only. 💧 LED mask for 10 minutes with Neutrogena - an LED mask that utilises Blue Light (targets acne) and Red Light (stimulates collagen production + reduces inflammation) to treat acne. I’ve been using this for two months (ish) and it’s just as good as the DDG Spot Lite Device, but obviously more convenient if you need to treat larger surface areas. Since I’m not using any actives other with Epiduo as to not over stimulate/sensitise the skin, this has been a great companion to treat the breakouts + inflammation in a non-invasive way. 💧 Mixed Medik8 Hydr8 B5 Intense with PaulasChoice Peptide Booster. This has been my favourite combination in the PM (paired with a gentle pigment correcting serum that I’ll share soon! 🤐) when using Epiduo, together they are deeply hydrating + restorative. I had some flaking this morning so decided to use it this AM too.

DRUNK ELEPHANT - Protini Polyp
DRUNK ELEPHANT - Protini Polypeptide Cream is one of my go to moisturizers. This moisturizer contains polypeptides (proteins) to help with skin texture and firmness. This cream is great for all skin types. For normal/oily skin this cream is very hydrating but not too heavy. For dry skin types, adding a drop of marula oil adds even more hydration. The consistency is a light gel cream. ✅ cruelty free ✅ clean at Sephora ✅ anti aging ✅ sanitary packaging While this product has a pretty high price point, I find it’s worth every penny. The pump releases enough product for one use, and each container has about 100 pumps. The pH is about 5.5 for those who care! This product layers extremely well with other Drunk Elephant serums. My favorite combinations are: 💚 marula, bhydra, a passioni, protini 💛 marula, tlc, protini 💙 babyfacial, protini Whenever I use this product I wake up with hydrated, bouncy skin! 🙌🏻
