The FAB Four Travel Set
This is probably my favorite brand, but it’s not perfect. There are some products that are really amazing and then some that just flopped. I want to focus on these four which are some of their most popular products from the brand. FIRST AID BEAUTY - Pure Skin Face Cleanser This is definitely one of my favorite cleansers especially because of how well it cleanses. It’s best for combination to drier skin types. This product has amazing hydrating ingredients such as glycerin and aloe extract. -Fragrance-free. -Contains soothing ingredients such as feverfew and licorice extract. -Rinses without leaving any residue. FIRST AID BEAUTY - Facial Radiance Pads This product has a very interesting formula containing very soothing and beneficial ingredients, however, it also contains some irritating ones. This product contains some citrus extracts which are very irritating ingredients and it also means that it has fragrance. -It also contains aloe and cucumber extract which are very soothing ingredients. -The exfoliating aspect of this product is characterized by lactic and glycolic acid. -In addition to aloe and cucumber extract, this product also contains glycerin and hyaluronic acid. FIRST AID BEAUTY - Ultra Repair Cream This is a very good moisturizing cream especially for those with dry skin. It contains great ingredients for this such as shea butter, glycerin, and squalane. The formula also contains soothing ingredients such as allantoin, feverfew extract, and licorice extract. -Product also contains colloidal oatmeal which is good for irritation, rashes, eczema, and other skin conditions. -This formula also has one form of ceramides. -Unfortunately, it contains a fragrant oil, eucalyptus, it is the very last thing on the ingredient list. When I used this product, I couldn’t even tell that there was eucalyptus oil in it. Which I’m going to assume that there is a very small amount. FIRST AID BEAUTY - Weightless Liquid Mineral SPF 30 This is definitely going to be based on ingredients since my experience wasn’t very good. Maybe it was just a bad batch, but the product had a very sandy texture. I personally don’t agree with just reviewing products based on personal experience since everyone’s skin is different. What works for me may not work for someone else. -Fragrance-free. -This sunscreen does have a tint which counteracts the white cast. -The product contains feverfew and licorice extracts, amazing soothing ingredients. -It also includes green tea, vitamin C, and E which are great antioxidants. FIRST AID BEAUTY - FAB Four Travel Faves Kit Overall, I think this is a very good travel set especially if you want to try out some products from First Aid Beauty. I would recommend the cleanser which I actually have been using for a while now. The cream moisturizer is also a good pick, but be careful with the fragrance.

Favorite products to beat Maskne! 😷
✨ Before I dive in to the product-reviews, I want to give you guys three tips that have helped me keep breakouts/maskne away! • Change your mask everyday/Do not reuse masks - this does not apply to reusable mask; However if you are using a reusable mask, make sure you’re washing it after every use 👌🏽 I personally have a mask for everyday of the week and wash them all on laundry days using the Tide Free & Clear detergent on a gentle cycle. • Cleanse skin day & night - having a mask on all day can harbor bacteria on that area of the face, so it’s important to washing all the dirt and grime away. • Use non-irritating products & products for acne. Even though I don’t deal with acne anymore, I have implemented a couple products in my skincare routine that are for acne to help me with any breakouts. ✨ Here are two products that have been saving my skin lately: • FIRST AID BEAUTY - Pure Skin Face Cleanser This is a skincare staple for me and has helped me with my sensitivity and maskne. It isn’t super hydrating but doesn’t strip your skin either, making it the perfect cleanser for those dealing with breakouts. It has a creamier texture and suds up perfectly. • The Ordinary - Niacinamide 10% + Zinc 1% Do I have to go into detail? 😂 this ingredient is becoming more & more popular by the hour and I love it! I saw significant improvement of my maskne within a week of using this in my skin. It also got rid of any hyperpigmentation left behind from my breakouts. I also started using it on my body to help with body acne and eczema too. 😉 Both products can be purchased at ULTA or Sephora. The cleanser is around $25 and the serum is about $6/7! If nothing else, I would suggest buying the Niacinamide because that is truly the star of the show here 🌟 Have you guys used either? What are your thoughts? ✨ #CheriePartner

Summer Empties
COSRX - Low PH Good Morning Gel Cleanser Claims: This gel type cleanser with Tea-Tree Oil and natural BHA to shrink the sizes of pores and and refine the skins texture. It gently dissolves oil, dirt and other impurities without stripping the skin of its natural oils. I really wanted to like this cleanser. I enjoyed the texture of it, but it was just too drying for my skin. I also didn’t notice any refining of my pores. I won’t be repurchasing. COSRX - One Step Green Hero Calming Pad Claims: Essence made of Green Tea Leaf Water and Green-Rx Complex relieve redness and irritation while providing gentle exfoliation. It contains Lactobionic Acid to even-out skin texture and enhance the skin's natural barrier. This product was also not my fave. I was in search of a calming product because of a damaged skin barrier. This stung a little after I used it. Will not be repurchasing. THE inkey LIST - Hyaluronic Acid Hydrating Serum Claims: Working across multiple layers of the skin, this super serum hydrates your skin, helping it appear plump and smooth, while reducing the appearance of fine lines. I understand the hype behind this product. It’s water like consistency immediately absorbs into your skin and doesn’t leave a sticky feeling. Would repurchase The Ordinary - Niacinamide 10% + Zinc 1% Claims: Niacinamideis indicated to reduce the appearance of skin blemishes and congestion. A high 10% concentration of this vitamin is supported in the formula by zinc to balance visible aspects of sebum activity. This product really helped with my hormonal acne! Repurchase? I already did! FIRST AID BEAUTY - Ultra Repair Cream Intense Hydration Claims: Instant relief and long-term hydration for dry, distressed skin, even eczema. Suitable for all skin types, leaves skin feeling smooth, hydrated and comfortable after just a single use. This is a very thick yet whipped consistency. I intended to used this on super dry areas on my face, but it had a harsh sting. I did start using it on the rest of my body and got really good results! CeraVe - Eye Repair Cream Claim: Help reduce the appearance of dark circles, eye puffiness and brighten the entire eye area. Suitable for all skin types, this non-greasy, fast-absorbing, fragrance-free eye cream My moisturizer was lacking in some key ingredient areas like ceramides, It was soft and absorbed super quickly. I liked this product. I would consider repurchasing it. THE inkey LIST - Caffeine Eye Cream Claims: Reduces the appearance of puffiness and dark circles, Can also reduce the appearance of fine lines and the smooth texture provides a perfect canvas for make-up. I have noticed an improvement using this eye cream! The caffeine acting as a diuretic does make a difference. I would repurchase this, but I’m curious to try their retinol eye cream.

Do you use AHAs in the morning?? I use these ✨
I use these AHA (Glycolic acid) products during the day! There are some people who don't like to or they say you can't use AHAs during the day. Well, that's a myth. You definitely can use AHAs in the morning, the only key to protect the skin regardless of time is SPF. So, you can use a good broad spectrum sunscreen throughout the day to protect the skin and you'll be good to apply Glycolic acid during the day. This notion comes from some studies that show that AHAs make our skin be hughly photosensitive and can the structure of our DNA. It's not because you have certain acids on your face during the day and they react with sunlight and cause us damage. It is mainly because it thins out the Stratum Corneum and that causes photosensitivity and it happens even if you put your AHAs at night. Because the photosensitivity effect lasts for about a week after you've applied your acids. So the bottom line is you can get sunburn or photosensitivity no matter when you use chemical exfoliants whether at night or in the morning, just make sure you apply a good sunscreen which should be used anyway. I use AHAs or chemical exfoliants during the day as I use my retinols or retinoids at night and sometimes I use my Acne treatments at night. I am using these two currently in the morning and I chose these only because they're very gentle on skin and don't irritate it. The first one is @tula pro-glycolic 10% resurfacing toner. TULA SKINCARE - Pro-Glycolic 10% Resurfacing Toner It is a gentle gel serum toner that has : ✨Pro-Glycolic Complex proprietary blend of 100% natural lactobacillus probiotics and 10% glycolic acid helps tone and exfoliate skin and removes excess oil and debris. ✨Natural Mushroom + Beet Extract is 400X more hydrating than hyaluronic acid alone. ✨Turmeric Extract is a powerful antioxidant that helps reduce signs of inflammation. ✨Blueberry Extract natural anti-oxidant helps to fight free radical damage. This toner is quite gentle compared to other Glycolic acid toners I've used and this can be layered with my other actives and hydrating products on top of it. The second is @firstaidbeauty Facial Radiance pads. FIRST AID BEAUTY - Facial Radiance Pads These are very gentle and easy to use. Because they're in pads form I get to layer my thick toners and serums after I use these. This has : ✨Glycolic Acid An Alpha Hydroxy Acid, helps skin appear brighter, exfoliates and improves texture. ✨Lactic Acid A Humectant and Alpha Hydroxy Acid that helps skin appear brighter, exfoliates and improves texture. ✨Lemon Peel A natural extract that helps brighten skin's appearance. ✨Indian Gooseberry A natural extract that helps tone skin. ✨FAB Antioxidant Booster Helps stave off environmental aggressors with Licorice Root, Feverfew and White Tea extracts. What are your favorite Chemical exfoliants you like in the morning?? ❤️

I ❤️ OATS! (Acne routine)
Hi everyone! Since I’ve been struggling with maskne recently, I’ve tried to be minimal with my skincare using ultra-soothing products. Here’s my current routine: AM: Aveeno - Calm + Restore Nourishing Oat Facial Cleanser Love this new cleanser! Super gentle but still effective. FIRST AID BEAUTY - Ultra Repair Wild Oat Hydrating Toner I ❤️ THIS TONER! I live in a college dorm and the bathroom is down the hall, so I use this as soon as I get back to my room after washing my face. Fragrance free (yay!) and soothes my cystic acne. Aveeno - Calm + Restore Oat Gel Moisturizer This gel-cream is great! I’ve used Neutrogena - Hydro Boost Gel-Cream and PURITO - Deep Sea Pure Water Cream as gel moisturizers in the past, but I’ve really been enjoying Aveeno’s new oat version! Clindamycin gel (prescribed by dermatologist) - topical antibiotic, similar to benzoyl peroxide’s antibacterial properties. DIFFERIN - Oil Absorbing Moisturizer SPF 30 Just got this a few days ago. Sunscreen is essential, especially since I’ve been using tretinoin. PM: Same cleanser, toner, and gel-cream. CeraVe - Skin Renewing Night Cream I use this as a thicker moisturizer on top. Non greasy and does not cause breakouts. Tretinoin (prescribes by dermatologist- I wait for my moisturizer to dry and soak in completely, and apply tretinoin after. I find my skin is least irritated that way. I hope bringing my routine back to the basics lets the tretinoin and clindamycin work their magic. I’ll keep you guys updated! 😊❤️❤️

My Favorite Serums (Dry & Senstive Skin) 🤩
When I shops for a serum, there are two things I evaluate before spending the 💵: * Can it help dry skin? * Will it irritate me? Well these two products are what been saving my skin the past few months from stress and dryness. They don’t do anything fancy other than hydrate my skin & exfoliate to give me a glow 🌟 The Ordinary - Hyaluronic Acid 2% + B5 can be purchased for just $6 at ULTA and is the best HA I have used so far. It plumps my skin, packs in hydration, and is non-irritating. The texture is like a lightweight gel and little goes a long way. I apply it by pressing it into my skin after I have applied my toner. HERBIVORE - Prism 12% AHA + 3% BHA Exfoliating Glow Serum is an amazing AHA/BHA exfoliator and perfect for those of us with dry skin. It has a very similar texture to the HA from The Ordinary, and feels just as hydrating too. This product is a bit on the pricier side [retailing for $54] so if this is out of your price range, my next fave exfoliating serum would be The Ordinary - Lactic Acid 5% + HA ⭐️ The Prism serum I typically apply during my night routine and the Hyaluronic Acid is used on an everyday basis. I love using both with my HONEST - Calm On Foaming Cream Cleanserand my FIRST AID BEAUTY - Ultra Repair Wild Oat Hydrating Toner 💛 I usually follow up with the FIRST AID BEAUTY - Ultra Repair Cream Intense Hydration as my moisturizer 🧴 ✨ What are your favorite serums? #CheriePartner

Skin Care Routine
Hello! I though I would come on here and make a post in regards to my current skincare routine. I am looking for suggestions on the routine. First, I would like to give you some feedback on my skin currently. As of right now I am broken out, I have some dark spots and hyperginmentation on my cheeks, my pores on my nose, under my eyes, and my chin are very large and have many black heads. I do have dark circles and deep wrinkles under my eyes, but I am not too concerned with them as I am the above things. I just recently switched around my entire skincare routine. I recently found The Ordinary and contacted them about a skin care routine for my skin type. This was the regimen I was told to use with their products (or others): Morning routine: Cleanser Hyaluronic Acid 2% +B5 Niacinamide 10% + Zinc 1% Moisturizer Sunscreen Night time routine: Cleanser Toner Hyaluronic Acid 2% + B5 Niacinamide 10% + Zinc 1% Azelaic Acid (2-3 times per week) Moisturizer The current cleanser I am using are The Ordinary Squalane cleanser, Cerave Renewing SA Cleanser, and the Neutrogena Rapid Clear Stubborn Acne Cleanser (only when I shower). For the moisturizer I am switching between First Aid Ultra Repair Barriar Cream, Kate Somerville DeliKate Recovery Cream, and Neutrogena Hydro Boost. I switch between these three moisturizers depending on my skin. For sunscreen I am currently using the CeraVe hydrating sunscreen SPF 30. When I am finished with my sample size I will be switching to the Neutrogena Clear Face Breakout Free SPF 55 sunscreen. I will admit after using these products for about two weeks I have noticed some differences in my skin such as it being much more hydrated, glowing, and small bumps that I have on my neck have reduced. I have also noticed more breaking out of my skin, but I am chalking that up to switching skin care products. I am currently working into adding The Ordinary AHA 30% + BHA 2% and the Retinol 0.5% in Squalane. I also would like to add a Vitamin C to my routine, but I am unsure which would be right for me. I am also looking for suggestions on adding antioxidants. Lastly, I am looking for suggestions on other products such as The Inkey List, Paula’s Choice, and La Roche-Posay products for acne prone combination skin.

Over Exfoliation: Products for Recovery
Many of these can be considered drugstore products since they’re very accessible. I like to make budget friendly recommendations to make it more convenient for everyone including students like myself. —Cleansers— Simple - Kind to Skin Moisturizing Facial Wash This is a very gentle cleanser that has a gel-like texture. It includes very soothing ingredients and rinses very nicely without leaving any residue or a tight feeling. This cleanser effectively removes dirt and oil as well. This product is fragrance-free and it’s only $5! Aveeno - Ultra-Calming Hydrating Gel Cleanser This is another gentle cleanser with many soothing ingredients suitable for sensitive or irritated skin. This cleanser leaves skin refreshed without leaving it dry or tight. It’s fragrance-free and it retails for $7! —Toners/Serums— FIRST AID BEAUTY - Ultra Repair Wild Oat Hydrating Toner This toner contains many hydrating and soothing ingredients for calming redness and moisture. This toner provides lightweight hydration and is fragrance-free. This product is free from iffy ingredients such as alcohol and witch hazel which are common among many toners. These ingredients can be too stripping especially for sensitized skin. It also contains antioxidant and fatty acid rich squalane. This toner can be considered to be on the pricier side, retailing for $22. FIRST AID BEAUTY - Ultra Repair Hydrating Serum This serum has a very lightweight texture that works well for all skin types while providing sheer moisture. The product includes a very good mix of reparative, antioxidant, and anti-irritants. It has hyaluronic acid and collagen which helps reduce inflammation and provides the defense of antioxidants. Another ingredient included is feverfew which has anti-redness capabilities. This product is also fragrance-free and retails for $38. —Emollients— CeraVe - Healing Ointment Emollients are great for those dry flaky areas, especially this one. It’s a gentle formula that is fragrance-free. The formula contains ceramides, hyaluronic acid, a high amount of petrolatum, mineral oil, and silicone which all contribute to this ointment’s healing capabilities. This product retails for $11. Aquaphor - Aquaphor Healing Ointment This is a very reliable product with a gentle fragrance-free formula. This is a dermatologist favorite for reason since it does amazingly well with dry, cracked, and irritated skin. —Moisturizers— FIRST AID BEAUTY - Ultra Repair Face Moisturizer Has a gentle and soothing formula that is also fragrance-free. Good mix of replenishing ingredients with antioxidants. This product moisturizes without leaving a greasy feeling. I hope this helps everyone! :)

Skincare swaps for Summer to Winter ☀️➡️❄️
Unless you live in a neutral weather area year-round, it’s important to adjust your skincare routine based on the weather outside—temperature, humidity, and other factors should play into your routines. For my sensitive, red, acne-prone combination skin, this is how I do it! I keep some of my routine the same, but here are some highlighted products that only show up in the summer or winter for me: SUMMER HIGHLIGHTS ☀️ Sunday Riley UFO Oil: SUNDAY RILEY - U.F.O. Acne Treatment Face Oil don’t ask me why this works wonders in the summer but doesn’t in the winter! I have been in this cycle since 2018, and it just works for me best in the summer. I think it’s because this is a dry oil formula so it’s not really as moisturizing as your skin needs in the winter. First Aid Beauty Face Moisturizer: FIRST AID BEAUTY - Ultra Repair Face Moisturizer NOTE THAT THIS IS NOT THE ULTRA REPAIR CREAM!! This is the facial moisturizer version that comes in pump packaging. It’s a much more lightweight formula, almost gel-like, making it great for the summertime when you’re sweating more and your face is hit with more humidity. This doesn’t give me enough moisture in the winter. Summer Fridays Jet Lag Mask: SUMMER FRIDAYS - Jet Lag Mask Hear me out. I’ve said this time and time again. This is NOT a hydrating mask. The top ingredient behind water is a natural exfoliant (chestnut seed extract) so really it’s a polishing mask. In the summer I wear it overnight over another cream or oil instead of as a wash off mask. I’ve noticed that it reduces my redness and helps my breakouts clear faster. Since this doesn’t hydrate me, I use it more often in the summer. WINTER HIGHLIGHTS ❄️ Paula’s Choice Azelaic Acid Booster: PAULA'S CHOICE - 10% Azelaic Acid Booster just want to say this up front—even though I like this product, I don’t condone the past racist actions of the brand owner and will not be purchasing from them moving forward. This is a product I already had in my possession. That being said, if you have rosacea, this will be your best friend. It’s all about calming redness and fighting acne without exfoliating—perfect for winter. I will use this on top of serums but under heavy creams. Don’t use this with probiotics, as this is anti-bacterial, so it may create a reaction in your skin. Lactic Acid Serums: The Ordinary - Lactic Acid 5% + HA SUNDAY RILEY - Good Genes Lactic Acid Treatment I’ve linked both of these products since they both work for me but one is drastically lower in price. Lactic acid is a gentle AHA that can help fight acne. I like both of these serums, and use them at night. Wild Magic Beauty Oil: WILD MAGIC BEAUTY - MOON LIGHT - Goji Berry + Sea Buckthorn Facial Oil this is my go-to night oil in the winter. So moisturizing and luxurious! #CheriePartner

New Beauty Buys
This body scrub honestly does wonders for KP (keratosis pilaris). I was first gifted this and then made a purchase 2 weeks ago. FIRST AID BEAUTY - KP Bump Eraser Body Scrub with 10% AHA A little background: keratosis pilaris tends to appear on upper arms, legs, or buttocks, and they’re those annoying tiny bumps & don’t hurt or itch. It’s actually more common than you think, and it’s not anything bad. It usually gets worse in the colder months because your skin is drier. @firstaidbeauty’s body scrub has helped my KP a lot in the past few days, and has helped me achieve that smooth skin on my upper arms. I think this product is worth it and something that I’ll keep purchasing in/for my body care routine. Have you tried this body scrub? If so, did you like it? @cherie@Cheriebeauty #cheriecreator

Body Acne Be Gone! 🔮
I started having back acne on this random day during my freshman year of college and since then have been struggling with it on and off. Recently I have found this routine and I’m so happy to report that the conditions have been stable for months now. As you can see in the second photo, I still have some scars and discolorations, but hey, better than before, at least my back isn’t bumpy anymore. I rarely get new pimples on my back, and if I do it’s a small one that can heal in days, not the big, painful, red ones that haunt me for so long. List of Products: MARIO BADESCU - A.H.A Botanical Body Soap I shower everyday and use this body wash. It smells great and leaves my skin clean but not dry. Before this I use CeraVe - SA Body Wash for Rough & Bumpy Skin. I liked that one too, but it wasn’t as foamy and I just find this Mario Badescu one more pleasant. THAYERS - Rose Petal Facial Toner Ok this toner is not great for your face in the long run because of the witch hazel in it, but it works so great for body acne. I can say that since I started using this toner on my back I have been noticing huge improvements. It’s not sticky or anything on my skin and I just use my hands to pat the product on my back (daily stretch lol). FIRST AID BEAUTY - KP Bump Eraser Body Scrub with 10% AHA I use this body scrub with AHA no more than once a week and usually after I take a bath so I can buff off all the dead skins. It leaves my skin super soft and smooth. I took off a star because it’s not a gentle scrub and for some reason some particles always stay on either my shower curtain or on the floor... CLINIQUE - Acne Solutions Clinical Clearing Gel I use this when I notice a pimple on my back. Good old salicylic acid concentrate to dry it out. I took off a star because you have to wait for it to dry down before you put on clothes and sometimes it hurts a bit. Other Tips: This is going to sound really dumb but: RINSE OFF ALL PRODUCTS that might be on your skin! I realized I actually have very sensitive skin on my body and if I don’t rinse until there’s zero trace of product on my back, I break out. This includes body wash, and especially hair conditioner, if you have longer hair and leave hair conditioner in as you wash your body. My guideline is: if I feel any slippery feeling on my back, I need to rinse more. Pick your hair and body wash products carefully. As it turns out, I cannot use a lot of products, especially those that purposely leave your skin extra smooth and slippery. Also you might be allergic to some ingredients, pay attention to those too. Be mindful of hair products: oils, serums, styling products, etc. Again, they might be great for your hair, but if they get onto your back, maybe it’s another story. Wash your beddings and towels often! A lot of bacteria might be on them! Hope this helps!!

The FAB Four Travel Set
This is probably my favorite brand, but it’s not perfect. There are some products that are really amazing and then some that just flopped. I want to focus on these four which are some of their most popular products from the brand. FIRST AID BEAUTY - Pure Skin Face Cleanser This is definitely one of my favorite cleansers especially because of how well it cleanses. It’s best for combination to drier skin types. This product has amazing hydrating ingredients such as glycerin and aloe extract. -Fragrance-free. -Contains soothing ingredients such as feverfew and licorice extract. -Rinses without leaving any residue. FIRST AID BEAUTY - Facial Radiance Pads This product has a very interesting formula containing very soothing and beneficial ingredients, however, it also contains some irritating ones. This product contains some citrus extracts which are very irritating ingredients and it also means that it has fragrance. -It also contains aloe and cucumber extract which are very soothing ingredients. -The exfoliating aspect of this product is characterized by lactic and glycolic acid. -In addition to aloe and cucumber extract, this product also contains glycerin and hyaluronic acid. FIRST AID BEAUTY - Ultra Repair Cream This is a very good moisturizing cream especially for those with dry skin. It contains great ingredients for this such as shea butter, glycerin, and squalane. The formula also contains soothing ingredients such as allantoin, feverfew extract, and licorice extract. -Product also contains colloidal oatmeal which is good for irritation, rashes, eczema, and other skin conditions. -This formula also has one form of ceramides. -Unfortunately, it contains a fragrant oil, eucalyptus, it is the very last thing on the ingredient list. When I used this product, I couldn’t even tell that there was eucalyptus oil in it. Which I’m going to assume that there is a very small amount. FIRST AID BEAUTY - Weightless Liquid Mineral SPF 30 This is definitely going to be based on ingredients since my experience wasn’t very good. Maybe it was just a bad batch, but the product had a very sandy texture. I personally don’t agree with just reviewing products based on personal experience since everyone’s skin is different. What works for me may not work for someone else. -Fragrance-free. -This sunscreen does have a tint which counteracts the white cast. -The product contains feverfew and licorice extracts, amazing soothing ingredients. -It also includes green tea, vitamin C, and E which are great antioxidants. FIRST AID BEAUTY - FAB Four Travel Faves Kit Overall, I think this is a very good travel set especially if you want to try out some products from First Aid Beauty. I would recommend the cleanser which I actually have been using for a while now. The cream moisturizer is also a good pick, but be careful with the fragrance.

A healing cream for dry skin
Welcome to part 1 of my series: Ingredient dive: where we dive into the ingredients of skincare products and list out pros and cons. Let's get started: This cream heals your skin. It feels enriching, yet also so soothing and simple. Here im going to list the top 6 ingredients and what they're used for. ✨ Water: This is exactly what it sounds. It can deliver moisture to your skin, especially when paired with other hydrating ingredients, like glycerin ✨ Stearic acid: This is a skin replenishing fatty acid that heals your skin! ✨ Glycerin: This is a humectant, meaning it takes moisture from the air and draws it into your skin. It's amazing and is one of the best ingredients you can see on an ingredient list. ✨ C12-15 Alkyl Benzoate: Don't get scared by ingredients like this. Even though it's name is long and complex, this is what makes this cream so creamy and soft. It's also used to help deliver other ingredients like glycerin to your skin. ✨ Caprylic/capric triglyceride: This is essentially just a fancy word for coconut! This is an extract of a coconut that is an excellent emollient and skin replenisher. ✨ Glyceral stearate SE: This is an amazing ingredient that not only hydrates the skin, but heals it. It also adds to the texture to make it creamy and lightweight (source: paula's choice ingredient dictionary) Here im going to list some pros and cons of the product: Pros ✅ ✨ As someone who has mild eczema, this cream literally heals and hydrates the skin. Any signs of eczema on my face are completely gone, and any dry patches on my face are completely gone. ✨ It's texture is PERFECT! ✨ It's smooth and simple, yet also enriching and hydrating! ✨ The container has a lot in it, so it's been lasting me for months ✨ Can be used on the body or the face Cons ❌ ✨ It's 35$, which I understand might be out of some people's price range Overall, I think this is an amazing product!! Definetly worth buying if it's in your price range! If you're curious about buying it, but don't want to spend that much,I think they have a smaller bottle that's cheaper. FIRST AID BEAUTY - Ultra Repair Cream Thanks for reading! ✨✨✨

Over Exfoliation: Products for Recovery
Many of these can be considered drugstore products since they’re very accessible. I like to make budget friendly recommendations to make it more convenient for everyone including students like myself. —Cleansers— Simple - Kind to Skin Moisturizing Facial Wash This is a very gentle cleanser that has a gel-like texture. It includes very soothing ingredients and rinses very nicely without leaving any residue or a tight feeling. This cleanser effectively removes dirt and oil as well. This product is fragrance-free and it’s only $5! Aveeno - Ultra-Calming Hydrating Gel Cleanser This is another gentle cleanser with many soothing ingredients suitable for sensitive or irritated skin. This cleanser leaves skin refreshed without leaving it dry or tight. It’s fragrance-free and it retails for $7! —Toners/Serums— FIRST AID BEAUTY - Ultra Repair Wild Oat Hydrating Toner This toner contains many hydrating and soothing ingredients for calming redness and moisture. This toner provides lightweight hydration and is fragrance-free. This product is free from iffy ingredients such as alcohol and witch hazel which are common among many toners. These ingredients can be too stripping especially for sensitized skin. It also contains antioxidant and fatty acid rich squalane. This toner can be considered to be on the pricier side, retailing for $22. FIRST AID BEAUTY - Ultra Repair Hydrating Serum This serum has a very lightweight texture that works well for all skin types while providing sheer moisture. The product includes a very good mix of reparative, antioxidant, and anti-irritants. It has hyaluronic acid and collagen which helps reduce inflammation and provides the defense of antioxidants. Another ingredient included is feverfew which has anti-redness capabilities. This product is also fragrance-free and retails for $38. —Emollients— CeraVe - Healing Ointment Emollients are great for those dry flaky areas, especially this one. It’s a gentle formula that is fragrance-free. The formula contains ceramides, hyaluronic acid, a high amount of petrolatum, mineral oil, and silicone which all contribute to this ointment’s healing capabilities. This product retails for $11. Aquaphor - Aquaphor Healing Ointment This is a very reliable product with a gentle fragrance-free formula. This is a dermatologist favorite for reason since it does amazingly well with dry, cracked, and irritated skin. —Moisturizers— FIRST AID BEAUTY - Ultra Repair Face Moisturizer Has a gentle and soothing formula that is also fragrance-free. Good mix of replenishing ingredients with antioxidants. This product moisturizes without leaving a greasy feeling. I hope this helps everyone! :)

💰💰Money saved!9 Drunk Elephant Skincare Dupes Recommended by Youtuber Cassandra Bankson👍👍!(2)
Hey guys! In my last post, I introduced four Drunk Elephant skincare dupes recommended by Cassandra. This post, I will continue to show you the remaining five best Drunk Elephant dupes that contain similar or identical ingredients as Drunk Elephant products and achieve similar or identical results but with lower prices👇👇. The Original:  DRUNK ELEPHANT - T.L.C. Framboos Glycolic Resurfacing Night Serum$128 The Dupe: #FARMACY - Honeymoon Glow AHA Resurfacing Night Serum[products]# $88 " FARMACY Honeymoon Glow AHA Resurfacing Night Serum is not the perfect dupe, but they are similar." said Cassandra. They both have the key ingredient AHA, which is a glycolic acid exfoliating the skin. Also, they have a greatest-hits list of non-abrasive chemical exfoliants: tartaric, lactic, citric, and salicylic acids are all in this potent PM cocktail to sweep away dead skin cells and brighten everything up.  The Original: DRUNK ELEPHANT - T.L.C. Sukari Babyfacial Mask$80 The Dupe: BIOSSANCE - Squalane + Glycolic Renewal Mask, $68 Cassandra pointed out that this dupe is a steal of a deal with some of the same great ingredients, like glycerin, salicylic acid, lactic acid, and so on, to exfoliate and renew our skin. Also, they have ingredients like squalane and hyaluronic acid plump and hydrate. The main difference is usage. The BIOSSANCE takes just 10 minutes each time and around 3 times a week while the DE recommends 20minnites and only once a week. The Original: DRUNK ELEPHANT - C-Tango Multivitamin Eye Cream$64 The Dupe: PAULA'S CHOICE - Clinical Ceramide-Enriched Firming Eye Cream $14 Vitamin C also gives your eyes a lift, especially when it comes to correcting dark circles... which is precisely the reason why the lightweight-yet-hydrating DRUNK ELEPHANT C-Tango™ Multivitamin Eye Cream  is so popular. On the other hand, PAULAS CHOICE Ceramide-enriched Firming Eye Cream pumps up your peepers for more than half the price. This Paula's Choice product also has a lot going for it, as it blends brightening vitamin C with retinol and five ceramides, making it quite the eye cream multitasker. Also, Cassandra pointed out that they have a similar texture as well as feel.  The Original: DRUNK ELEPHANT - B-Hydra Intensive Hydration Serum$48 The Dupe: FIRST AID BEAUTY - Ultra Repair Hydrating Serum$38 B-Hydra Intensive Hydration Serum contains sodium hyaluronate, a hyaluronic acid derivative, plus skin-brightening pineapple ceramides and vitamin B5 to lock in moisture. Similarly, lightweight and super absorbent, this First Aid Beauty Ultra Repair Hydrating Serum is a water-based gel packed with hyaluronic acid and soluble collagen for plumpness, plus allantoin, aloe, and colloidal oatmeal to further soothe irritated skin. Like Drunk Elephant, First Aid Beauty's products are 100% vegan, but opting for this same-sized serum will save you ten bucks. The Original:DRUNK ELEPHANT - Lala Retro Whipped Moisturizer with Cream$60  The Dupe: PAULA'S CHOICE - Omega+ Complex Moisturizer,$35  The key of these products is ceramides. Cassandra recommended PAULAS CHOICE Omega + Complex Moisturizer as Drunk Elephant's dupe.  PAULAS CHOICE  is almost identical – Down to the whipped, cloud-like texture! The velvety moisturizer highlights rich omega fatty acids to strengthen the barrier and fruit extracts to soothe the skin. It is an amazing way to end our nighttime routine! Cassandra personally likes this one WAY better, and it still has the same three ceramides that the DE one has at half the price. While Drunk Elephant is nothing short of a buzzworthy skincare brand, there's no denying that some of our favorite buys can take a lot of coin from that hard-earned paycheck once payday comes knocking. And for this reason, these best Drunk Elephant dupes climbing the ranks of cult-favorite products are worth trying at least once!

My Current Faves: Herbivore Lapis oil- so calming, soothes all redness and irritation. Eminence Stone crop hydrating mist- new purchase. Extremely hydrating, smells nice. Still figuring out if it’s going to be an every day toner or just when I need extra hydration. Herbivore Blue Tansy- Love this mask! Instantly soothes and improves redness and inflammation. Will definitely repurchase

FIRST AID BEAUTY - Ultra Repair Cream Mango my sister gave me this as a sample and i was excited to try it as i heard it was super moisturizing. initially i used it as a face moisturizer but i think the fragrance irritated my skin, as i had a bunch of tiny bumps come up all over my face. so i just started using it as a hand cream because my skin can get really dry and have eczema pop up 😭 but this product has really helped soothe and treat my parched hands. i will have to say that you do have to reapply for several day’s to get the eczema to heal completely. but overall is a great hand cream ! smells great too !

Honestly... it’s time to talk about my favorite lip product, the FIRST AID BEAUTY - Ultra Repair Lip Therapy I ran through a mini of this super fast a few months ago (gifted), and was reluctant to purchase a full size since I have so many lip things... but after having chapped lips for who knows how long, I knew I needed it back in my life. And hey, it’s only $12. Of course, it’s has colloidal oatmeal in it, which is probably why I love it, but it also contains shea butter and glycerin as key ingredients. It’s long lasting on my lips, and mega hydrating! I use this as a balm, pre lipstick, or as a mask. It’s better than any balm or mask I’ve tried, and I dare say it’s... a holy grail.
