🫑 What’s in my bag? Feat. Jennifer Lopez ✨
My bf thought it was ridiculous that I was bringing the whole jar of sunscreen with us in my purse... But I gots to reapply! I would love to see a mini size go into production, cc: JLo😉 JENNIFER LOPEZ - Glow Eau de Toilette I was so excited about this (part of a set I got for xmas) I prefer my perfume in roller ball form honestly, helps me keep my scents light & more controllable. Glow became my signature scent soon after it originally launched in late 2002... But it’s more than just nostalgic for me, it’s a really nice fragrance that I’ve fallen in love with all over again. It’s soapy in the perfect way to me, refreshing, yet warm. Actually a quite delicate scent for a celebrity perfume. #JLo Beauty - THAT BIG SCREEN™ IN A BROAD SPECTRUM[products]#[FiveStars] 🫒This is my new favorite sunscreen! My bf got it for me for my birthday, & I’m even getting him to use it! The texture is rich & creamy, but isn’t shiny at all, at the same time, not overly matte. The texture & finish are perfection for me. It is a predominantly chemical sunscreen, but also utilizes Zinc Oxide as a sun protectant. I included pics in the slides of texture & ingredients, but I’ll be doing a full review of this & the other JLo Beauty goodies I got!!! NARS - Orgasm Oil-Infused Lip Tint I absolutely love this lip oil/lip gloss. It’s not sticky at all, & very moisturizing. ☺️The blush of the same name never really worked for my complexion- a little too orange for me—but as a lip gloss, the interpretation of the original Orgasm shade is so wearable! TATCHA - Camellia Gold Spun Lip Balm I don’t even know why this lip balm is in my purse, why does this bitch need 5 lip balms in her purse?! I love this lip balm, but if I’m going out in the world these days I don’t like bringing something I have to stick my fingers in. SOL de Janeiro - Brazilian Touch Hand Sanitizer Spray 2021 must have! I love that this has a bit of the signature bum bum scent when you spray it on your hands. MARC JACOBS BEAUTY - Lip Lock Moisture Balm w/ SPF 18. Full review in a recent post. ALGENIST - Genius Liquid Collagen Lip My favorite lip serum. When my lips feel really dry, I reach for this first! Full review in a previous post. unpa.Cosmetics - Bubi Bubi Lip Ampoule Current favorite, most versatile lip balm! You can get it for $9 on K-Beauty site, Soko Glam. I highly recommend!

I know I’m late on this, but I’m doing one anyways🥰 1️⃣- PRODUCTS I tried a whole lot of new products last year. There’s definitely a few that really stood out to me that I had to repurchase! There’s only one on this list that I haven’t yet repurchased, simply cuz I haven’t run out! (Nars mask) 🐝Beauty of Joseon - Glow Serum : Propolis+Niacinamide & the 🐌Beauty of Joseon - Repair Serum : Ginseng+Snail Mucin These are $17 each, I can’t recommend them enough! They have done wonders for my skin, keeping it hydrated & clear, as well as fading dark spots. The formulas are really clean, concentrated, & free of fragrance & alcohol. 🇰🇷Sulwhasoo - First Care Activating Serum it’s expensive, but I fell in love. It’s really boosted the radiance in my skin & out of nowhere, this pre-serums prep serum somehow became a necessity in my routine & I freaked when I ran out & was awaiting my shipment. 👄ALGENIST - Genius Liquid Collagen Lip Did not make my lips fuller, but quickly became my favorite lip treatment. It’s basically an oil serum for the lips with algae extracts! It lasts a really long time even with multiple uses daily. 💕unpa.Cosmetics - Bubi Bubi Lip Ampoule new holy grail lip balm for me & it’s only $9, not a bad price at all because the tube contains over twice the amount of your average chapstick. Everyone has already heard me talk about this lip balm lol, but it’s so good! 🌊NARS - Aqua Gel Luminous Mask This one surprised me. Bought it on a whim from Nordstrom or something... It’s full of marine & botanical extracts, feels so refreshing & soothing, a little goes a long way & you get a generous amount for the price. A little gem for dry or irritated skin. 🍭TRULY - Unicorn CBD Whipped Body Butter This is the shit you need if you have really dry skin & want to smell like a “mature” cupcake!🧁 🌴SOL de Janeiro - Brazilian Touch Hand Sanitizer Spray My favorite hand sanitizer of 2020. Smells like the signature bum bum scent for a moment when you spray your hands before basically smelling like alcohol-but it’s hand sanitizer 2️⃣- TREND Definitely the no makeup, chillin at home look, but only because I participated in that quite heavily & it really helped my skin.🥰 3️⃣- MY BEST LOOK? Ha. Please see number 2... I could have probably found one if I didn’t lose all my photos, but pretty much if I brushed my hair it was a good day in 2020.😷 4️⃣- CREATORS I know I’m gonna leave someone out so please forgive me I’ll just name 5, but I love so many!!! Give these babes a follow: @bealizbeauty@VyshnaviKarra@halfkimchi@D.Bennett& @RedheadSkincare🌹 5️⃣- SOMETHING I LEARNED Skincare really is a never ending journey. I’ve learned to love my bare skin a lot more this last year!💀 Happy to be back from my unexpected & unwanted hiatus. #CherieCreator🍒

Best serum for all skin types
I really wish I did not like this product, in fact I wish I hated it, and I tried to replace it with so many "dupes", but so far I havent found anything better to fix/heal/treat my skin after using Retin-a. Look, I have a lot of hyperpigmentation or had a lot and now I have some, I also deal with texture this is all thanks to my hormonal acne, so I have finally learned to stick to my Retin-A 5 nights per week. Retinoid users know the struggle with dry and flaky skin, I have followed all types of derm advices on how to deal with it but all of those tips were nonsense on my combo skin, it actually made me stop using retin-a (which slowed down my improvement). But finally I decided to woman up and use my Retin-a (on a lower dose) every night during the quarantine, and in the mornings I would apply this product - LIQUID COLLAGEN- and girl let me tell you I didnt have to worry about peeling/flaky skin, of course this thing is pricey so I tried moisturizing with other stuff (cerave cream, the ordinary serums, and a bunch more because I am a serum/moisturizer junkie) but none gave me the heal this one did. A esthetician recommended me another similar product that costed less than this product but nope, it did not compare. This product is amazing, it hydrates me, it heals me, and it doesnt leave residue, I can apply whatever I want on top of it (spf, other moisturizers, foundation, etc) with no issues. Or I can apply this alone and live my life to the fullest period. Pro Works on any type of skin, dry, sensitive, oily. Did not make me break out at all, did not give me any side effect or skin reaction. Leaves my skin so soft and glowy Con: The only and biggest con of all - ITS PRICEY 😥😥😥 TIP Once you apply let it stay on your face for at least 10 mins before applying anything else, since this product is so precious let your face absorb all it can, then do w e you want to your pretty face. Do I recommend it? Obsviously! Will I repurchase? Wish I said no, but yes I will. I am going to try wait for sephoras next sale event to get the 20% off of this. And by the way, if anyone swears there is a true dupe for this at a fraction of the price please let me know! Love you all! Paula Q

Serums for dry skin-which is the best?
There are tons of serums in the market, and I am always on the way of trying all the popular products and those niche brands. Today I want to share three products I been using, incliding two famous ones and one from Algenist, a brand comes from biotech lab. I have dry skin and I am 23 right now, so what I expect for a serum is either it can make my skin stable and hydrated, or it has some great ingredients and I can see the results. GENIUS Liquid Collagen from Algenist ALGENIST - GENIUS Liquid Collagen Let’s start with the GENIUS Liquid Collagen from Algenist. This is a vegan collagen serum that helps to restore skin’s natural bounce and resilience while diminishing the look of fine lines and wrinkles. The ingredients include patented Alguronic acid that is sourced from algae and can minimize lines, Active vegan Collagen that helps strengthen skin and improve texture, and Microalgae oil to hydrate skin. I almost finish this sample and I really like it. The texture is quite fresh and absorbed quickly. I can feel the hydration and suppleness to skin, so I can give it 5/5, recommend! Ultimune Power Infusing Concentrate from Shiseido SHISEIDO - Ultimune Power Infusing Serum Concentrate The next thing is the Ultimune Power Infusing Concentrate. I already used up one 50ml bottle, which is $110. The description says it is a fast-absorbing serum for all skin types that hydrates, strengthens and firms, and also boosts the effects of any other serum or moisturizer layered over it. As you can tell on the picture, it is a lightweight fluid, which contains gingko, shiso, thyme, and lotus germ that will smooth the skin. I think it does make my skin more moisturizing and won’t conflict with other products I used afterwards, but I didn’t notice the firm part. It’s definitely suitable for all skin types, but the price is a little high for me. I think it is quite similar to the Advanced Night Repair from Estee Lauder. I could give it 4/5. Advanced Ceramide Capsules Daily Youth Restoring Serum from Elizabeth Arden Elizabeth Arden - Advanced Ceramide Capsules Daily Youth Restoring Serum The last one is Advanced Ceramide Capsules Daily Youth Restoring Serum from Elizabeth Arden. This is an oily product that contains ceramide, Tsubaki oil and vitamin E, etc., which can help replenish and restore the ceramide that skin loses with age and reduce the appearance of lines. I do feel my skin touches softer and looks more radiant after using for several days, but I feel that it is hard to be absorbed by my skin and I think it ca be too oily for me even I have dry skin. But it is more affordable than the other two serums, so if you have dry skin and want to start anti-aging without spending a lot, you can give it a try. For me, I can give it 3.5/5.   So here comes the winner for me- Liquid Collagen from Algenist. And for serums, I always recommend trying samples first and making decisions after using for a while because they are usually expensive. Hope my opinions can be helpful!

YTTP, MARRY ME
{empty}{will repurchase} YOUTH TO THE PEOPLE - Superfood Air-Whip Moisture Cream Skin type: Young (22), combination sensitive skin. Primary concern is clogged/wide pores Product purpose: Hydrate! Moisturize! My love… isn’t she beautiful? The best cream I have ever used. She has the most beautiful texture, so airy, gel-like and light. It goes on so very smoothly, smells wonderfully green, and sinks in almost immediately. Due to the hyaluronic acid, it instantly plumps skin and gives you the dewiest look. When I had her, I used her every day. The jar is now empty, and OF COURSE I’ll repurchase this in 2020. This cream kept my skin SO hydrated, and never broken me out even in the slightest. I always knew that even if I got rid of everything in my routine to track down some sensitivity or reaction, I could always keep applying it because it would never hurt me <3 This is not a cheap cream, but for me, it’s worth it because I have not yet found another cream that would work so well for my skin. IMO, anyone could use this cream in their routine, whether you have oily skin that could use some help from a Kale/HA cream, or dry skin that could use some hydration-first cream before applying a thicker oil.

$tock🆙 & 🆕 Reviews to come!
Trying to organize a little bit... My sink top is usually a bit cluttered, so let’s talk about the cabinet! Just like a cute little skincare closet🤎 I’m not usually one to stock up, but between moving to a rural area, quarantine & some gifts, it happened. I have some friends that hoard their favorites when there’s a sale or fear of apocalypse.... Apocalypse aside, I really don’t recommend “stocking up” Running out of a crucial product sucks, but overstocking can be problematic. I acquired more treatments than I know what to do with lol, & if they stay locked away I’ll never remember to try them! Another big issue is expiration dates as well as ingredients/actives that are sensitive to light, heat or humidity. Products with organic ingredients/products free of preservatives will definitely be sensitive to these elements. Some actives, like vitamin C are notoriously unstable, loosing some of their stability & potency over time. If not stored in cool, dark & dry conditions, it can speed up oxidation, causing the degradation of the molecule. This can lead to simply a waste of money or serious skin irritation! I recommend keeping any vitamin C products out of the sun, especially if they have a clear bottle. A few favorites I have back ups of: (check previous posts for full reviews) HERBIVORE - Amethyst Body Scrub With Epsom Salt the best jasmine scented body scrub💜 giovanni - D:Tox System Purifying Facial Mask charcoal & volcanic ash mask🌋 TONYMOLY - 62% Alcohol Aloe Hand Gel candy pear scented hand sanitizer🍐 SHANGPREE - Diamond Luminous Cream a super luxurious Niacinamide cream💎 unpa.Cosmetics - Bubi Bubi Lip Ampoule just reviewed this, my new favorite!🌹 A few things I’m really excited to try, & can’t wait to share my experience/review with you guys❤️Drop me some tips in the comments if you’ve tried any of these or have any questions about the others😊 HERBIVORE - Prism Exfoliating Glow Duo TONYMOLY - Strawberry Nose Pack ETUDE - Moistfull Collagen Eye Cream ETUDE - SoonJung 2x Barrier Intensive Cream Elizabeth Arden - Vitamin C Ceramide Capsules Radiance Renewal Serum Kaja - Brow Blowout Fiber Gel Brow Definer ALGENIST - ALIVE Prebiotic Balancing Mask NEOGENLAB - Real Vita C Powder Lemon ⬆️ powder Vitamin C is more stable than liquid forms & doesn’t degrade in sunlight as easily.

Peel off mask for dark spots and discoloration
ALGENIST - BLUE ALGAE VITAMIN Dark Spot Correcting Peel 🔍WHAT IS IT? As described “It is a resurfacing and exfoliating peel that visibly reduces the appearance of dark spots and discoloration.” It is a twenty minutes wash-off peel with a gel-like texture having blue green color. It is safe for all skin tones and targets concerns such as dark spots, fine lines, wrinkles, dullness, and uneven texture. It has a very light scent of Blue Tansy. 🔍KEY INGREDIENTS: The peel is formulated with, * Glycerin * 100% pure Vitamin C (L-Ascorbic Acid) and antioxidant Blue Phycocyanin from Spirulina (a Blue-green algae, rich in essential vitamins and minerals). * Triple-Acid Complex of AHAs/BHA/PHA. Along with Glycolic, Mandelic, Malic and Salicylic acid, it also contains Azelaic Acid and Tranexamic acids that help correct uneven skin tone. * patented Alguronic Acid. * Blend of Safflower, Sunflower, Meadowfoam seed oils. 🔍HOW DO I USE IT: I use the peel on freshly cleansed damp face for 20 minutes followed by rinsing off with lukewarm water. I finish the routine with Liquid collagen, calming relief and sleeping collagen. It can be used 1-2x/week. 🔍MY EXPERIENCE: (I have a normal to dry skin) Once you apply the peel, there is a light warm and slight tingling sensation, but it did not cause any redness or irritation. Also, the peel does not dry and is quite easy to remove with a wet cloth. I must say my skin does appear fresh, smooth and brighter after using this. I do not have concerns such as dark spots/discoloration, so I can not comment on that part. I will enjoy using this peel as long as it lasts but will not repurchase it. It is a nice peel off mask, but I guess it is more for someone with concerns such as uneven skin tone and hyperpigmentation. 🔍PRICE: $85 #CheriePartner #CherieCreator

NOT WORTH THE HYPE 😑
✨your follows and cheers mean so much 💛✨ I’m so confused by this product, I recently purchased it and as you can see from the photo there are no sunscreen claims on the bottle. Which is confusing because on the Sephora website it said it is SPF 15 but I’ve seen other bottles with the SPF claim on it. I was also under the impression that FDA requires you to list it on the bottle ??? No where on the bottle or box does it say it’s SPF. It has zinc oxide in the ingredients, but doesn’t list its effectiveness ? Maybe I’m missing something ? I was really hoping to find a great moisturizer with broad spectrum SPF, this is something that is missing in my routine and would love recommendations if you have any. Here’s my review on the ALGENIST - ALIVE Prebiotic Balancing Moisturizer SPF 15 💪🏼 |PERFORMANCE| Meh, left skin feeling greasy and shiny. Didn’t find it ‘hydrating’ or ‘balancing’ 🤲🏻 |TEXTURE| for a moisturizer I was shocked how close the consistency to regular sunscreen it was. This moisturizer when on thick and white and took FOREVER to soak in and even when it did my skin just looks SO oily for the rest of the night. 👃🏻|SCENT| the products was unscented 💦 |INGREDIENTS| this product is free of sulfates SLS and SLES, parabens, formaldehydes, formaldehyde-releasing agents, phthalates, retinyl palmitate, oxybenzone, coal tar, hydroquinone, triclosan, and triclocarban. And is also Vegan. Contains algae prebiotic which helps re balance the skins natural ecosystem (prebiotics are the food probiotics thrive on to be more effective) 💸 |VALUE| this bottle was $53 for 50ml. Which is a total pass for me, way to much money for something that doesn’t deliver. I’m all for paying the price for good sunscreen/ moisturizers but this was not one of them. Womp womp.

Moisturizer with SPF
Algenist Alive Prebiotic Balancing Moisturizer SPF 15 Product Function: detoxify and hydrate skin to create a more even complexion Target Concerns: dullness, uneven texture, dryness, pore size Product Texture: very lightweight, texture more reminiscent of a sunscreen than a typical moisturizer (see second picture to see how product rubs into skin) Review: I bought this moisturizer about a month ago because I was seeking out a daily moisturizer that would be effective and more clean than the one I was using. It definitely checks of A LOT of the clean beauty boxes- it’s free of sulfates SLS and SLES as well as parabens, it’s vegan, the list goes on! Still I didn’t love the product. The biggest downside to an otherwise wonderful sounding product is the lack of absorption. Each time I applied this moisturizer I felt as though it remained as a caked on layer on top of my skin all day long! This sunscreen was also my first experience using a mineral sunscreen product so I’m unsure if it’s characteristic to that or if it is just the product? Either way I’d likely not recommend this product. At $40 for a 1.7 oz moisturizer I was anticipating a bit more of a wow-factor, but found it just fell flat. Overall I’m giving this product a 3 star rating, largely due to its cleaner ingredient list.ALGENIST - ALIVE Prebiotic Balancing Moisturizer SPF 15

My night time skin routine
DRUNK ELEPHANT - T.L.C. Framboos Glycolic Resurfacing Night Serum ALGENIST - POWER Advanced Wrinkle Fighter 360° Eye Serum fresh - Kombucha Antioxidant Facial Treatment Essence TATCHA - The Dewy Skin Cream TATCHA - The Silk Peony Melting Eye Cream Murad - Night Fix Enzyme Treatment SHISEIDO - Deep Cleansing Foam I can’t say enough great things about my night time routine. This helped me clear up my acne, leave my skin with very little texture/pores, and my skin feels more hydrated than ever. I’m 31 and look almost a decade younger and prevention is the key to skincare. This is my routine: 1. Wash my face with my Shiseido foaming cleanser which removes all my makeup/ oil and dirt. 2. I pat my face with my Fresh black tea Kombuchea essence which will help my serum penetrate my skin deeper. 3. I apply my Algenist power 360 eye serum with my ring finger and I get my whole eye orbital area. 4. I apply my Drunk Elephant night serum to my face, this is the key to getting rid of texture and helping with dullness of the skin. 5. I apply my Tatcha Silk Peony eye cream with my ring finger. Pearl extract helps with brightness and fine lines and wrinkles. 6. I apply my Tatcha dewy skin cream to the rest of my face. This moisturizer has the perfect amount of hydration. 7. Last step I apply the Murad Night fix Enzyme Treatment this i apply to my face area this will boost hydration and help with fine lines and wrinkles.

I purchased the Algenist POWER Advanced Wrinkle Fighter 360° Eye Serum late last year as I was noticing some fine lines starting to show up under my eyes. With the winter weather my skin gets dehydrated and I’m more prone to develop wrinkles. I’m used to eye creams being quite heavy and emollient however when I applied this Eye Serum it felt so silky and sunk into my skin. I love the texture of this serum which almost feels like a silky gel like cream. I do feel I’ve seen less fine lines around the eye area after using one bottle hence I’ve since finished one bottle after about 3 months and onto my next bottle! This bottle doesn’t last as long as other eye creams I’ve used in the past however a little does go a long way. It retails for about $95 Cdn so it’s not cheap. However Algenist does run massive sales on its website and you may want to check out stores such as Winners in Canada (where I purchased mine) and TJ Maxx in the US for discounted Algenist products! Highly recommend this serum for anyone wanting to try an anti-aging, wrinkle fighting eye serum that works!

Prebiotic Mask 🦠
{gifted} ALGENIST - ALIVE Prebiotic Balancing Mask Skin type: Young (22), sensitive, reactive, combination skin Product intention: rebalance, detoxify, and hydrate skin, revealing a healthy, alive, and refreshed overall glow Texture: (as shown) creamy, thick. Color transforms upon application I use this product about once a week, when my skin is feeling a little congested. What I love about this mask is that it will ALWAYS leave me feeling clean and balanced, and never will make my skin react, even if it’s already sensitized. This skin is also incredibly fun to apply (and you know I LOVE those)… It is green in the jar, and as you apply it to your skin and rub it in, it turns pink! After it turns pink, you leave it on for al little while and then wash off with warm water. Skin is left feeling SO fresh and balanced. I would definitely recommend this product - Algenist is a wonderful brand and I’m a huge fan of a lot of their products. This one was a big hit for me. I keep it in my skincare fridge to extend its shelf life because while I love this mask, I don’t use it nearly enough to be finishing it soon. It’s $38, and if you can cop it during a Sephora sale, or on the Algenist website (they have a discount for new members!), it’s even less.

Time for some mini-reviews! I’ve been trying out a few newbies recently and here are my thoughts: ⠀⠀ Power Recharging Night Pressed Serum algenist ~ This super hydrating serum looks like a cream, melts like a balm, feels like a serum! A true delight and smells SO YUM! I’m a tiny bit obsessed with this! Just wish it came with a spatula so I didn’t have to dip my fingers in every time. (To keep the product pure). ⠀ ⠀ Lemon Water Hydrosol bodhiandbirch ~ One of the best mists I have used to date! This is basically a liquid serum that is jam-packed with fab ingredients and is antibacterial, antimicrobial and antifungal. Also each bottle comes with a small clear quartz stone inside! Fab for making up clay masks as well as misting after cleansing to lock in moisture. Ceramidin Cream drjart ~ If there is one brand I would turn to if Drunk Elephant didn’t exist it would be Dr Jart - and this cream. This is highly hydrating - highly absorbing. I think for normal skin types it would be better just at night but I have dry skin so use this in the daytime too. ⠀⠀ Silken up dry conditioner amika~ This spray is such a fab innovation! I have been using this in conjunction with the Amika dry shampoo. With those two products my hair is left clean-feeling, soft and lovely-smelling for longer between washes!

My Least Favorite Algenist Product 😢
My Least Favorite Algenist Product 😢
{gifted} ALGENIST - GENIUS Liquid Collagen Body Mylk You know how much I love Algenist. So you can imagine how heartbroken I was about this Body Mylk. On paper, she is perfect: milky, light body lotion. But unfortunately, it did not perform up to the standard of the amazing Genius line. I was gifted this product by Algenist during the holiday season. I tried it out every time I showered, and while I’m sure (because it’s Algenist we’re talking about) that the skincare benefits of this milk are amazing, it was not the typically delightful Algenist experience to apply it. First of all, the smell is subtly bitter. The first time I smelled it, it smelled just like the rest of the genius line: fresh, slightly sweet. But upon rubbing it in, the scent became kind of stale and bitter. Also, the milk leaves skin slightly sticky. Another minor con: it takes me about 4 pumps to cover my whole body, and seeing how quickly I went through it in the first month, I don’t know if this will last me very long. I will absolutely still finish this product, but will not be repurchasing and don’t recommend it to others.

Gimmick or genius?: A $115 bottle of lies
Gimmick or genius?: A $115 bottle of lies
Answer: GIMMICK I just found out that collagen molecules are way too big to actually help our skin if placed topically. So I cannot recommend you spend your money on something that will work. But ALGENIST - GENIUS Liquid Collagen is a vegan collagen serum that is formulated to even out skin tone, reduce fine lines and wrinkles, and restore your skin’s elasticity. Algenist says it is good for dry, normal, oily and combination skin types. It absorbs into the skin quickly because it is so lightweight. The yellow “beads” is microalgae oil that helps hydrate and nourish your skin. (Does oil hydrate? 🧐🤔) I’ve gotten samples of the product before and I finally used points to get a pequeño bottle sample. I am not seeing amazing results, but I do think I need to be more consistent. So it may be on me, but I also blame the bottle. The beads get stuck and don’t make dispensing the product easy. I have been to Sephora to test if it is a fluke with the rubber-tipped, glass pipet and the same thing happened with the normal bottle. At this point in time, I also cannot recommend this product because of functionality. I have been using it for a month and the bottle just isn’t ideal. I think if they would have to make the glass syringe bigger to make it easier, but then that would dispense too much product. Specs: 1 oz./30mL 🔍 • Sephora: $115 • Algenist.com: $115

The texture on this mask is amazing! I like this mask a lot. It feels like a thick whipped frosting and changes color with heat once applied. It makes my skin feel really soft and I’m enjoying this so far!
