My Usual Go-To Makeup Look
*ignore the fact that my eyebrows are a little out of control at the moment, I’m working on growing them out and fixing the patchyness so I can go get them waxed* First I start by mixing The Ordinary - Niacinamide 10% + Zinc 1% and Neutrogena - SkinClearing Oil-Free Liquid Foundation , I’m not exactly sure all what it does but it makes my face look smoother. Then I apply it to my face using REAL TECHNIQUES - REAL TECHNIQUES Foundation Blender . I then go on to my eyeshadow. I use the color called top from JEFFREE STAR COSMETICS - Orgy Eyeshadow Palette . I take the MORPHE - Morphe X Jeffree Star JS6 Rule Blender Brush and apply that eyeshadow to my eyelid. Then I use the shimmer bronzer from #Ulta Beauty - Bronzer, Blush, and Highlighter Palette[products]#[FiveStars] to put some shimmer on the corner of my eye because I didn’t have the right glitter eyeshadow for this. After that I use ULTA BEAUTY - Waterproof Amped Lashes Mascara for my eyelashes. I take the BLOSSOM - Tropicali Flavored Roll-on Lip Gloss and put that on my lips, then I blot that with some tissue and apply some Red Dahlia BURT’S BEES - Tinted Lip Balm . I do it this way so that my lips are well moisturized when I put the tinted lip balm on and it doesn’t look dry. Then after all that I take my MORPHE - MORPHE X Jeffree Star JS7 Double Trouble Brush to brush out my eyebrows. And that’s all. It’s simple and doesn’t have too many steps. I’m not at all good at makeup. I’m just a beginner but I feel that this looks good on me. In my opinion this is a pretty good natural/minimal look. I’m always open to feedback because I am still learning.
My morning routine for moisturized skin includes fresh - Soy Face Cleanser Jumbo this cleanser was given to me when I got my Clarisonic. It is very gentle and does a good job washing my skin without drying it out. I am finishing my EIGHT SAINTS - All In eye cream. This is an okay cream it doesn’t really sink in well but it is very hydrating. I will probably not rebuy and am looking for a new eye cream. Then I use SEPHORA COLLECTION - Ultra Glow Serum: Glow + Strengthen Vitamin C Serum I like the consistency of this serum but read a lot of reviews that say the vitamin c in this is not stabilized. I use it daily and I have noticed some glow but before I wasn’t using anything so I am not sure if it is just my routine or this specific product. I only use CLINIQUE - Acne Solutions Clinical Clearing Gel when I need spot treatment. This works very well but it is drying and strong. The smell burns my eyes. I have been using belif - The True Cream Aqua Bomb Aloe Vera which is very hydrating this is my second sample size but I think I will repurchase this when it runs out. I then use BURT’S BEES - Tinted Lip Balm for my lips. I love the red Dahlia color but the smell is terrible. Keeps my lips moisturized though so the product works. Any suggestions for an eye cream or vitamin c serum would be appreciated. Thanks!

💰💰💰Worth or Not? Lip treatment Products👄
There are so many products regarding lip treatment going on right now on the market. I indeed tried some including Japanese and western lip balm. I found Moisturizing Lip Balm from BURT’S BEES really helpful in winter and summer as well. However, LUCAS’ Papaw Ointment #LUCAS' PAPAW REMEDIES - Lucas’ Papaw Ointment[products]#[FiveStars]is not good for me. LUCA’S is very famous in Australia and prevalent in other countries. People regarded it as an overall application for skin including boils, burns, cuts, rash, cracked skin, etc. It looks yellowish and its texture seems really oily, smelling like papaw of course because it accordingly includes fermented fruit. At first, I applied it every night in winter to keep my lip moisturized for the whole night, but I was cheated by its oily texture which seemed to give a protector to my lip. Every morning I woke up, finding my lip felt heavy and seemingly could not freely breathe. When touching my lip by fingers, I still felt crackers and dead skin cells peeling off. This treatment gave me a fake feeling that my lip wore a thick and heavy armor, but still could not get protected, and finally got tired because of the heavy shell. However, I was not too worried about this one because I thought maybe one day it would work out until I purchased the BURT’S BEES BURT’S BEES - Lip Balm one recommended by my roommate. This brand has various range concerning lots of smells. I bought a cucumber one to have a try. After using this one, compared to the former Lucas’ one I applied, I felt a big difference. At first, this lipstick does not look oily, and when being applied my lip does not feel oily either. After a whole night test, my finger feels smooth while touching my lip, without any crackers. Sunflower oil and beeswax in this product helped a lot. More importantly, I realize it’s light and smelly, giving you a relaxed and sweet atmosphere when you use it. Therefore, I bought another one with a pomegranate smell.
5 Minute Makeup!
When I travel for work I don’t like to pack a lot and that goes for makeup too. I also like to be able to get ready as quickly as possible before I leave the hotel room. I’ve gotten a simple rosy, glowy look down to about five minutes using six products. Here’s the rundown: -benefit’s That Gal primer (which makes skin glow, makes a highlighter unnecessary and lasts through heat) -Wander Beauty’s Dualist Matte and Illuminating concealer (you can just use the matte end if you want to go especially fast, but I always use the illuminating end under my eyes because my circles are bad) -Tarte’s Amazonian Clay 12-hr blush in seduce -Glossier’s Boy Brow in brown -Thrive Causemetics’ Liquid Lash Extensions mascara -Burt’s Bees lip balm It’s a great, natural look that comes together quickly! benefit - ’That Gal’ Brightening Face Primer WANDER BEAUTY - Dualist Matte and Illuminating Concealer tarte - Amazonian Clay 12-Hour Blush Glossier. - Boy Brow thrive causemetics - Liquid Lash Extensions Mascara™ BURT’S BEES - Lip Balm

affordable drug store oil cleanser
Affordable DRUGSTORE makeup removing oil cleanser !! blew my mind I am a huge fan of double cleansing especially now that I have become a daily SPF where and also I do wear a ton of makeup I mean I love to cake it on....haha this product I did get recommended off of skin care recommendations from Hyrum but that being said I have tried so many cleansing oils and bombs and this one I just seem to get the best effect I absolutely love it the scent is pure ingredient based no fragrances added....I must admit yeah the scent is not too great just but it's the scent of the ingredients which I love I've noticed just in using it for the last week how much more soft my face is it's so easy to get this off and I usually follow with my cerave gentle cleanse skin care is so important and for the price of this I just highly recommend it especially if you are heavy makeup user or if you use makeup in general a double cleanse is so important
Do you double cleanse?!
Hey hey! I have oily acne prone skin and I oil cleanse with purpose! Here are some of the things I’ve tried and well I’ll tell you about my experiences below. GARNIER - SkinActive Micellar Cleansing Water All-in-1 Cleanser & Waterproof Makeup Remover this was my go to buy it only works for on the go or if I’m in rush not so much for if I want something to go deep down in my pores. BURT’S BEES - Cleansing Oil with Coconut & Argan Oils I tried this it feels great! But argan and coconut oils are not the best for oily and acne prone skin.. this product broke me out. POND'S - Cold Cream Cleanser the worst idea EVER! The bee’s wax in this product clogged my pores out so bad I’m still trying to recover from it.. NEVER AGAIN. Now I just keep it simple with Sunflower seed oil. It feels good and my skin feels so soft after using it. No worries of clogs because this oil will not clog your pores. It’s molecules are small enough to go deep in the pores which is a great thing. It has vitamin E which is good for healing and it helps block sun. It doesn’t replace sunscreen at all but it helps keep your skin from absorbing so much sun light. Sunscreen is still a MUST! There are many other benefits but those are the two that stood out the most to me to make me go out and grab a bottle.

Burts bees skin care.
I picked up these two Burts bees products in my local drugstore out of curiosity, I had just run out of the cleanser I regularly use (LANEIGE - Multi Deep-Clean Cleanser ) so I figured I would try BURT’S BEES - Anti-Blemish Purifying Daily Cleanser just incase i found that i liked it more than my regular cleanser. I find this cleanser works fairly well, I still had a few pimples show up but no massive breakouts like I usually get when I go without my regular routine for a while. However, my skin always felt pretty dry after I put on this cleanser. A big benefit of this product is you don’t have to use too much product in order to properly cleanse your skin. The one thing that really put me off of this product is the smell (this is a totally subjective thing so I didn’t mark it down any stars) I got use to the smell the more I used it but in the beginning I could barely stand it. I did end up going back to my regular cleanser after a few weeks. As for the BURT’S BEES - Rosewater Toner , I didn’t really like this product. It didn’t do much for my skin and again I hated the smell. Also the application was much more difficult than I’m used to because my regular rose water toner is PEARLESSENCE - Aloe + Rosewater Tonic Water Face Mist . The pearlessence toner has a lid similar to a parfum bottle so I could simply spray a bit on my face when I wake up. The Burts bees skin care line hasn’t had any negative effects but It’s nothing to go crazy about and I would recommend LANEIGE - Multi Deep-Clean Cleanser PEARLESSENCE - Aloe + Rosewater Tonic Water Face Mist Over BURT’S BEES - Anti-Blemish Purifying Daily Cleanser BURT’S BEES - Rosewater Toner Any day. (If you are going to buy the Burts bees products I strongly suggest buying them online as I paid more in store than the online prices!)
The Best Moisturizers for my Combo Skin
I have a pretty love/hate relationship with moisturizers. Most of the time, they’re too heavy, too oily, and too thick for my easily clogged pores. Over the years, I’ve accumulated quite the collection of creams and lotions that I have tried and tested to see what would work for me; and I finally found three that did. My skin is oily around the T-zone and dry around the cheeks, neck, and forehead. Over the summer, I am much more oily, while in the winter, I’m a lot drier. I also struggle with acne and acne scarring (dark spots). I’ve found three moisturizers that really help me with everything! Firstly, the Nourish Organic Ultra-Hydrating Face Cream. Nourish - Ultra Hydrating Face Cream I like to use this cream over the winter when I’m extremely dry and in need of dire moisture. The cream is very light and goes on like a dream; it smells of flowers. The texture is extremely smooth and right after application, my skin is a little bit sticky, but also very smooth and hydrated; I like to put it on my face during the night time after taking a shower; you would think that a shower hydrates your skin, but it really does the opposite! If I put this cream on during the day, I get oily and my pores clog. I found this product online on their website, and I really like it! Secondly, the Tate’s Natural Miracle Conditioner. #Tate’s - The Natural Miracle Conditioner[products]#[FiveStars] This stuff has literally been a game-changer! The formula is so smooth and thin whilst still being very hydrating. I like to use this product when I’m breaking out; if I put on too many heavy creams I break out even more. The product smells a little bit like watermelon, but not the artificial candy watermelon, and is so good at moisturizing my sensitive skin. It’s marketed as an all-in-one product, but I’ve only ever used it as a facial moisturizer. Right after use, my skin feels SO hydrated and SO nice! I discovered this product in my local health store, and I’ve been absolutely hooked since then! Lastly, the Burt’s Bees Rosewater Toner. BURT’S BEES - Rosewater Toner Now, you’re probably like, “that’s not a moisturizer! That’s a toner!” but truly it does both for me. I like to use this product in the morning after I wash my face with a cleanser and then at night after washing my face again. I call this product a moisturizer because it makes my skin naturally hydrate itself by creating oils, but surprisingly it’s never clogged my pores! If I put the toner on a breakout the swelling and redness will have gone down quite a bit by the next day, making this a great product for my acne warriors! It smells a little bit like alcohol mixed with roses, but the liquid seeps into my skin so evenly that my face looks radiant after use.

help! i’m breaking out!!
hey guys!! i used these two products in april and switched to burts bees and panoxyl in june, july . none of these products did me good, they cleared up my skin and then i started to break out after. the picture is when i started using cerave, my skin cleared up at first and then i broke out after that. i have been using la roche-posay purifying foaming cleanser, it sorta cleared my skin up but i’m now starting to break out. i have black heads around my nose and chin area, they just don’t wanna leave. it seems like i have combination skin, i’m not sure though. ••if you guys could suggest some products that i could try that would be so great!! CeraVe - Daily Moisturizing Lotion For Normal To Dry Skin CeraVe - Foaming Facial Cleanser For Normal To Oily Skin BURT’S BEES - Face Cleanser for Sensitive Skin PanOxyl - Acne Foaming Wash Benzoyl Peroxide 10% Maximum Strength LA ROCHE-POSAY - Toleriane Purifying Foaming Cleanser
EMPTY: Burts Bees Sensitive Skin Cleanser
BURT’S BEES - Face Cleanser for Sensitive Skin I bought this cleanser on sale. I believe it was about $8, as opposed to its normal $13. I was really interested in their brand, and honestly it didn’t disappoint. The product is a thick, white, soapless cream. I used a dime size amount both morning and night. I noticed after switching to this from my previous product, Neutrogena - Hydro Boost Water Gel Cleanser , I experienced far less break outs. My skin was a lot more hydrated. This bottle lasted me about four months. A downside to this is due to it’s texture, it felt like it never really fully washed off. Once it dried though, there was no feeling of product left over. However, despite being for sensitive skin, it does contain some potentially irritating ingredients. These include beeswax, witch hazel, and coconut oil. While I never noticed any redness using this cleanser, hearing about this was the reason I did not purchase another bottle. I heard good things about the LA ROCHE-POSAY - Toleriane Hydrating Gentle Face Cleanser, and I wanted to see if I’ve noticed any differences in my skin using a product without these ingredients. So far, I haven’t noticed anything besides for the fact that my skin feels drier after I wash my face than it did previously. All in all, I really like this product. As long as you’re not allergic to any of it’s ingredients and are on the hunt for a good cleanser for dry skin, I would recommend testing it out for yourself.

Skin Care Journey
The start: In 3rd grade, I started having acne. I would scratch it and A COUPLE TIMES, it left big black spots on my forehead. Amazingly, it didn’t leave any scars. The whole time, i would scrub my face everyday with the Neutrogena - Acne Proofing Daily Scrub(2017). That didn’t help. I’d also dap benzoyl peroxide treatments on the spots, like the ZAPZYT - Acne Treatment Gel(2017). Same story untill the summer after 6th grade. I got interested inn K-Beauty and tried the APRILSKIN - Real Carrot Blemish Clear Serumand APRILSKIN - Carrot Blemish Cream(June 2020) every day. it was AMAZING. It helped stop my habit of scratching my face and it brightened my skin, the acne on my face (forehead and sides only) was controlled. After a couple weeks, (now late June 2020) I purchased dermalogica - Daily Microfoliant Exfoliatorand used that once a week. I also started using moisturizer, like Neutrogena - Hydro Boost Water Gel and BURT’S BEES - Daily Face Moisturizer for Sensitive Skin. Then, I started tretinonin and it wasn’t pretty. Excess oilliness, dryness, my skin kinda freaked out. and no results after 3 months. I’ve decided to stop using tretinonin and let my skin calm down. So far, I’ve gone back to my routine of cleansing with APRILSKIN - Carrot Blemish Creamat night and applying APRILSKIN - Real Carrot Blemish Clear Serumafter. In the morning, I wash my fave with water and put on PURITO - Centella Green Level Unscented Sun SPF50+. That’s been doing wonders for me, so far now, I’ll sticking to it. Lesson: Don’t freak out your skin! Stick with the simple, tried and true routine.
Maybe I need to update skin routine?
￼To start, I have never been to a dermatologist so I don’t have a professional opinion on what type of skin I have. ￼In high school, I thought I had sensitive skin because it would react to changing weather and environments. And I I didn’t have a problem with acne but would get a pimple here and there. ￼Now, I’m in my early 20s and this summer has caused me to question my skin. It’s been doing new things (thanks 2020 🙃). Now I don’t really know what kind of skin I have. My cheeks have an uneven skin tone and are bumpy with a few dry patches. My forehead has gotten a couple of pimples. My nose has a bumpy texture but I’ve always had that. I have dark eye circles and a couple of wrinkles (more than likely from staying up late/not enough sleep). I continue to use Burts Bees products I used in high school but I started trying new products last year. My best guess is that my skin type is dry. ￼Current AM routine ￼Cleanser: BURT’S BEES - Face Cleanser for Sensitive Skin or cold water ￼Moisturizer: BURT’S BEES - Daily Face Moisturizer for Sensitive Skin Sunscreen: TULA SKINCARE - Daily Sunscreen Gel Broad Spectrum SPF 30 ￼Current PM routine Cleanser: BURT’S BEES - Face Cleanser for Sensitive Skin ￼Moisturizer: BURT’S BEES - Daily Face Moisturizer for Sensitive Skin Whenever I feel like: GOLDFADEN MD - Bright Eyes Dark Circle Radiance Complex Body Merry - Day to Night Eye Gel ￼Twice a week in place of regular cleanser: GLOW RECIPE - Blueberry Bounce Gentle Cleanser ￼Every two weeks: JJ young - Pore Glow Mask I’m currently wanting to update my skincare routine to targeting dry skin instead of sensitive skin. I’m also wanting to address evening and smoothing skin tone and decreasing dark eye circles without causing breakouts. I’m also in search of an affordable daily sunscreen that isn’t greasy, doesn’t leave a white cast and has clean ingredients. The one I currently use contains avobenzone. I’m looking for a zinc oxide one. I’m also going to change my diet to incorporate more water and less dairy and sugar. Feel free to share any product or lifestyle recommendations that are budget-friendly (less than $50 for me). I would appreciate any advice. I’m also interested in clean beauty products. They don’t have to be absolutely clean but as natural as possible. Products that I’m currently considering for evening skin tone are: ￼HONEST - Vitamin C Radiance Serum ￼￼HONEST - Beauty Sleep Resurfacing Serum ￼Glossier. - Super Glow Vitamin C + Magnesium Serum

Clean beauty that makes your skin radiant
This foundation gives your skin such a beautiful glow to it. It is medium coverage and blends beautiful! It does have a real strong earthy smell to it but fades fast after blending. It didn’t fall into my fine lines and has a great wear time to it!

Natural, Minimal Makeup Look for Fall!
It's finally fall! As a college student, I usually don't have the time to do a full beat so I often opt for natural, "no makeup" makeup looks. I'm also trying to embrace my natural face a little more these days. Here's what I have on! I'd recommend e.l.f. - Hydrating Camo Concealer to anyone with dry skin, (like me)! It's creamy, hydrating, and blendable. Perfect for natural looks. e.l.f. - Beautifully Bare Blush I purchased this product a while ago after eyeing it online and I was sort of disappointed. I expected a more blendable formula like Glossier. - Cloud Paint Seamless Cheek Color but this was chalky and dry. I've been revisiting recently in attempts to not be wasteful. The color is pretty and it stays on all day, but gosh is it hard to work with. benefit - They’re Real! Lengthening Mascara One of my favorite mascaras for a natural look. The photo doesn't do this product justice. It's perfect for softer, light makeup days. item - Brow Chow I got this in my Ipsy box and was pleasantly surprised! Never heard of this brand before. I usually just use a tinted brow gel, but this product has the perfect amount of pigment and is great for shaping brows! BURT’S BEES - Lip Shimmer This a really nice lip color. It's more of a balm than a lipstick. That being said, the staying power isn't fantastic, but it does leave a nice wash of color when it eventually fades. Not drying on my lips either. I have mine in the shade Fig, which is nice on cool/neutral skin tones like mine!
Say Goodbye To Chapped Lips!
Introducing some of my lip products! Decided to choose a range of them, from lip shimmer to lip gloss and give a little review for ya’ll! KOPARI - Coconut Lip Glossy When I tell you this smells heavenly...this smells HEAVENLY. It doesn’t smell like the artificial coconut scent, but more like the Maldives 😍 It’s a lip gloss/balm product, so it gives you a little glow on the lips at the same time as it moisturises! The applicator makes the application really smooth, easy and quick! This receives 4 stars from me as it’s sadly not as moisturising as the other lip products that I own. Still a good lip gloss though! Vaseline - Lip Therapy Rosy Lip Balm My favourite. This is hands down the best lip balm I’ve ever owned and used, it gives the slightest tinge of pink on your lips when you apply it and the size is perfect for putting it in your purse, your pocket, everywhere! Mine is rose scented, although it doesn’t exactly smell like roses, I still love it. I purchased this in Japan, when I went back and it comes in this rose scent, creme brulee, and unscented! A 5 star for sure. MENTURM - Medicated Lip Stick I mean what more can I say other than it works wonders. This is also a purchase from Japan, but you can get this at any drugstore or pharmacy, maybe even supermarkets(?) here, and everywhere else. It’s soothing and it keeps your lips moisturised! No doubt, a 5 star. BURT’S BEES - Lip Shimmer I gave this product 3 stars as I don’t really know how I feel about it. I mean it’s only a lip shimmer and it doesn’t moisturise your lips but it’s got a weird eucalyptus-y scent to it which is mixed with a subtle hint of guava...it’s confusing. This was gifted to me and I’ve used it max 3 times. The shimmer is great though, great for putting over your lip sticks, but it does have a pink tinge to it so it might look weird with different coloured lip sticks. Also, FYI, I rolled the product up in the last photo to take a photo of what it looked like and now it won’t roll back down...oh the things I do for Cherie. Also just a little question, I’m very new to this app so idk how the tags work, can you add more than one tags? 👵🏻
Show your lips a little L-O-V-E!
I don’t think caring for your lips gets the hype it deserves. For me, I didn’t really think about my lips too much until I burned them really badly back in 2015 while on vacation. I began reading up on sun damage for lips, and what signs of aging for lips looked like, I started a more conscientious routine. WHAT HAPPENS TO OUR LIPS AS WE AGE? Like the rest of your skin, as we age, our lips lose their plump youthful look. However, the skin on your lips is actually much thinner than the rest of your face (by about half as many layers - that’s why they appear pink!). Here are a few signs of lip aging, that while inevitable, can definitely be slowed with proper care: ￼￼￼￼Dry lips: we tend to lose the ability to create natural moisture for lips as we age. So they will appear drier and drier as we get older. ￼￼￼￼Thinner lips: this one sucks big time. But as we get older the depletion of collagen makes your upper lip thin out (and flatten). Another unfortunate factor if you’ve already got thin lips to begin with, you’ll begin to notice a difference a little earlier than those with bigger lips. ￼￼￼￼Sun Damage: applying sunscreen to your lips is not really something most people think about as frequently as the rest of your face or body. But its SO important to keeping your lips youthful in appearance. Photo aging on lips makes them darker, and also blurs the line between your lips and surrounding skin. Think of it like little bits of patch work blending both skin colours. ￼￼￼￼Wrinkles and Fine Lines: Sometimes referred to as “smokers’ lines” these are the sharp lines that can be seen when you pucker your lips. Even if you’ve never smoked, these begin to make an appearance in your late 20s/early 30s. This is a result of dehydration, sun damage, and puckering your lips (for me, drinking with straws 😂). HOW TO PREVENT LIP DAMAGE? ￼￼￼SPF lip products. Always. I rotate what I use, but since I spend a lot of time outside running I like to use something more affordable due to how fast I go through it. sun bum - Original SPF 30 Sunscreen Lip Balm Key Lime is my fav right now. It smells awesome and I find it very hydrating. Also it’s like $3-4, so I stock up in the summer months and carry it with me everywhere. ￼￼￼Moisturize: This doesn’t mean only products, it also means drink more water! I’m a culprit for over doing the caffeine, but I find when I skip the water, my lips are a pretty good indicator. Aside from this I use LANEIGE - LANEIGE Lip Sleeping Mask not only at night, but when I’m just sitting around the house and need a little extra hydration. BURT’S BEES - Strawberry Lip Balm and fresh - Sugar Orchid Tinted Lip Treatment also in the rotation! ￼￼￼Exfoliate: like the rest of your skin, clearing dry/dead skin cells works wonders to make them appear more plump! I use a DIY scrub, post here: https://t.cherie.com/J1VBSo1/ Happy lip loving✌🏼
𝐁𝐮𝐫𝐭𝐬 𝐁𝐞𝐞𝐬 𝐋𝐢𝐩 𝐁𝐚𝐥𝐦
The only lip balm I’ll ever use as far as chapsticks and stuff goes. It goes on feeling milky and silky and lasts a long time before you have to apply it again. The flavor is good too, but not too strong which I like. WHY I LOVE IT SO MUCH: I have gone through so many brands trying to find a lip moisturizer. Either the product dried my lips out, gave them an allergic reaction, felt too thin and didn’t moisturize. This is the most creamy chapstick ever. My lips feel and look amazing when I’m done putting it on. And its 100% natural. WHERE CAN I FIND THEM?: You can find them lots of places. Target, Ulta, Old Navy, Micheals, and maybe Walmart. They’re sort of everywhere, so next time you spot one, don’t be shy to pick it up :) you won’t regret it! BURT’S BEES - Strawberry Lip Balm BURT’S BEES - Hydrating Lip Balm With Coconut & Pear 4.25g
On the Path to Success!
Added Lactic Acid to my skincare and I'm loving it! Always looking for suggestions, of course, but as of now, I think I'm headed towards happier skin. Right now my routine goes; Double Cleanse: 1) Bioré - Witch Hazel Pore Clarifying Cooling Cleanser 2) BURT’S BEES - Soap Bark and Chamomile Deep Cleansing Cream Acid Peel: (PM ONLY) 3)The Ordinary - Lactic Acid 10% + HA Serum: 4) TONYMOLY - Vital Vita 12 Poresole Ampoule (AM) 5) The Ordinary - ''Buffet'' (PM) Moisturize: 6) Clean&Clear - Share ESSENTIALS Dual Action Moisturizer
Should I make changes?
I've just started to really get into skincare, and have designed a routine that I think is doing me better? I'm looking for suggestions, I have sensitive, acne prone skin that burns super easily in the sun. I have improved the quality of my skin with the changes I've made from just cleansing and moisturizing to adding in some serums, but I just wonder if there are any products that might be helpful for me. I'm a college student looking for more budget options that I can get at a local Ulta or possibly even Target. Please leave suggestions!!

your lips deserve their own care routine too
Everybody should show their lips some love! What else would you kiss with 😉? My lip care routine is still in the works, but here’s what I’m using right now. First, Burt’s Bees lip balm. I have so many of these and I will buy infinite more. Then the Bath and Body Works sugar rose lip scrub- it’s cheap, but it’s effective. If you need more exfoliation, you can also add the good ol’ clean toothbrush as a scrubber. At night I use Vaseline lip therapy to add some tint to my lips, and occasionally this lip mask, which I couldn’t find but I don’t like it anyway. It smells like grape Tylenol. During the day, I LOVE the Laneige grapefruit Lip Glowy Balm. I’m a sucker for grapefruit, what can I say? This stuff is amazing for your lips; they’ll feel so soft. The finish is super glossy with the tiniest tint, which is my kind of party! I would recommend all of these except the mask to show your lips a lil bit of love <3
BURT’S BEES-Lip Balm
Not my fave lipstick
These lipsticks have some pretty shades but they texture is a no from me- They are very patchy and dry and don’t look good on my lips especially if they’re dry. I know they make a more hydrating one so maybe I’d try those but I wouldn’t recommend these! BURT’S BEES - Burt's Bees Lipstick
