TWO WEEK DIFFERENCE!
I’m thrilled to share my Before & After of just TWO WEEKS of progress after switching to an almost all Sunday Riley routine (and face masking 5-6 times a week!).

Ultra-Clarifying Face Oil 4)SUNDAY RILEY - CEO 15% Vitamin C Brightening Serum 5)SUNDAY RILEY - Auto Correct Brightening and Depuffing Eye Contour Cream 6) SPF (SR supposed to be dropping one next spring, but I will share another post about my current favorite SPFs soon!)

The Hype is Real with This Product!
I have been using the SUNDAY RILEY - Good Genes Lactic Acid Treatment for a year now and my skin has never been clearer, glowier or more even. If you are looking for a product that will give you near instant results this is it! I love the Lactic Acid version of this because not only is it a gentler chemical exfoliant (my skin does NOT like glycolic acid), but it’s super effective at giving you great results. The first time I used this, I could barely believe how soft and glowy my skin looked the next morning. Please remember, if you are going to use any kind of AHA/BHA’s and m/or Retinols that you are applying sunscreen every 👏🏻 day 👏🏻 Let me know if you have any questions down below and I’ll do my best to help you out 💘

Comparing Sunday Riley & L’Oréal 🌙🌙
I’ve been a big fan of the Luna sleeping oil. I’ve used it for about a year and have loved it. It works really well and makes my skin glow BUT it’s very expensive. The small 0.5oz is $55 and the full size 1.18 oz is $105! That is super expensive and I didn’t want to be spending so much. I saw L’Oréal come out with a night serum with pure retinol. 1 oz is $36.99. It’s about a third of the price. Decided to get it and compare it to the Luna oil. L’Oréal: On first application it has a serum texture, very slick and soaks into the skin very quickly. This has no scent. Immediately after it soaks in quickly, my skin feels soft. I follow with moisturizer then eye cream. A week into using this and it feels fine. I haven’t seen a huge difference so far. I started using this every other day since the first 3 days of using this my cheeks would get slightly pink. A month of using this every day and I see a very subtle glow. After building up the tolerance of this retinol on my skin I no longer get the pink/red cheeks. My face looks smooth. This hasn’t irritated my skin at all which is a HUGE bonus for me. I’ve seen no bad reactions on my skin. The only thing that I wish it did have is a moisturizing affect. I’ve noticed that immediately after using the serum I have to follow with moisturizer because my skin has felt a little tight. Keep in mind that I have combination dry skin so if I felt a little tight after using the serum, that means that someone with really dry skin has to put moisturizer on quick. Besides that I’ve had no problems with this serum. L'ORÉAL - Revitalift Derm Intensives Night Serum With 0.3% Pure Retinol Sunday Riley: This oil feels really nice on the skin. On immediate application it’s blue but the more I blend into my skin (gently) it becomes transparent and has a slight scent. This smell goes away fairly quick, probably in 15 seconds or less. Since it’s in an oil I would’ve thought it would be slimy and well too oily for me but it’s not the case. You only need a few drops. This gives my skin a moisturizing affect which I love. My forehead is actually pretty oily and this didn’t make my forehead feel gross or make it break out! Using this for a while and I have seen this as a multiple use product. If my face is red or I have an irritation, this helps to get rid of it and helps calm my skin down. I haven’t had anything negative happen to my skin using this product! SUNDAY RILEY - Luna Retinol Sleeping Night Oil At the end of using the L’Oréal retinol for a month I’ve got to say this is a pretty great serum. Just wished it gave my skin a bit more moisture, but it was not terrible in any way. This has given my skin a similar feeling to the Sunday Riley oil; in terms of smoothness, softness and helping to prevent dark spots on my face. I would definitely recommend you try this out if you don’t want to spend the whopping $105 for the full size Luna oil.

SUNDAY RILEY - U.F.O (FIRST IMPRESSION)
Okay so - I got the SUNDAY RILEY - U.F.O. Ultra-Clarifying Face Oil in my Mecca Level 3 Beauty Loop Box to try and after using it up I am pretty impressed ☺️ This is a dry facial oil with 1.5% salicylic acid that is meant to be gently exfoliating, clear congested pores and help blemish prone skin - preventing breakouts and blackheads, leaving your skin brighter and smoother. It is also meant to reduce post-acne redness. The key active ingredients are: 🌸 1.5% Salicylic Acid - good for acne 🌸 Tea tree - hyperpigmentation, dullness 🌸 Black Cumin Seed Oil - improves radiance 🌸 Liquorice - Targets inflammation So here’s the deal. My skin is normal - dry. I used to have bad acne as a teenager but my skin is luckily, pretty clear now. I rarely get pimples. However, my skin has been kicking up a bit of fuss lately. With the stress of covid, uni, work... eating more junk food... less sun... more masks (you get the picture), not only have pimples been popping up more frequently, but they haven’t been healing and disappearing as quickly as usual. It’s been a real struggle for me. Other things about my skin, it’s pretty dull, gets dry easily, quite sensitive. Lets go over what this oil did for me. The reason I’m giving it 5 stars is for a few reasons I’ll go over now. Keep in mind, once I buy a full size and use it continuously for a longer period of time, I will post an update. ✨ Firstly, I noticed a difference overnight. This is a rare occurrence for me. Not only did my old blemishes look more faded and less inflamed the morning after using this oil, but a blemish I had forming was completely nipped in the bud overnight and was almost gone before it even arrived when I woke up. This was a pretty massive plus for me. As I said, any blemishes I get at the moment have been super stubborn and red so this was a nice surprise. ✨ I have dry skin. Even though this is a face oil, it’s supposed to help oily, blemish prone skin so I was scared it would dry me out. My skin felt beautiful after using it a few times, especially with my CeraVe - CeraVe Moisturising Cream and the DRUNK ELEPHANT - Lala Retro Whipped Moisturizer with Cream layered on top overnight. Definitely did not dry me out. ✨ Kind to sensitive skin. ✨ I noticed redness diminished a bit. Might have to continue using it to see redness go down more. I especially noticed redness reduced where I had blemishes. ✨ My skin looked glowy and less ghostly 👻 ✨ Overall made my skin feel and look clearer and smoother with every use. ✨ Smells good ✨Because it’s a dry oil it absorbed really nicely and really quickly into my skin and layered well with other products. KEEP IN MIND: ✨ Fragrance - There is a bit of fragrance in this product. While this isn’t the end of the world, it’s definitely something to keep in mind. ✨ Over use of the product can apparently lessen the effects over time. I’ll definitely buy a full size to try

✔️Results! Let's get rid of Hyperpigmentation! ✨
If you know me for my Acne journey, you know I managed to leave my hormonal acne at bay. For few weeks I've been focusing on my Acne scars (dark spots) or Hyperpigmentation. For my Indian/brown skin it is inevitable to take care of my Post inflammatory Hyperpigmentation as it tends to get worse with time and sun exposure. The key to start with gettind rid of hyperpigmentation is Sunscreen. Mostly an SPF 30+. It is very important to calm those Melanocytes (cells that produce Melanin) and stop/reduce inter-cell transfer of melanin once it's produced. ✨This can be done with the help of these ingredients : 1. Niacinamide - Brightens skin, reduces Inter-transfer of melanin, Calms melanocytes 2. Alpha Arbutin - Brightening agent, stops excessive melanin production 3. L-Ascorbic acid (Vitamin C) - Brightens and lightens dark spots 4. Azelaic acid - Brightens, gently exfoliates and calms Melanocytes 5. AHAs and Retinol - Increase cell turnover and exfoliate skin for brightening of hyperpigmentation. These all are my current favorites and are absolutely effective. Their formulation is so good I have been able to enjoy using them. ✨AM routine : 1. PAULA'S CHOICE - Pore-Reducing Toner 2. ( I use this to prevent further breakouts, and I experienced slight brightening with this as well) NATURIUM - BHA Liquid Exfoliant 2% 3. @naturium Alpha Arbutin 1% essence NATURIUM - Alpha Arbutin Essence 1% 4. @naturium Super serum plus on alternate days NATURIUM - Vitamin C Super Serum Plus 5. @naturium Azelaic acid 10% serum NATURIUM - Azelaic Topical Acid 10% 6.NATURIUM - Alpha Arbutin Serum 2% 7. @leegeehaam Royal Propolis vitam amploule 8. @sundayriley Tidal enzyme water cream ( This has Alpha arbutin and some other brightening ingredients) SUNDAY RILEY - Tidal Brightening Enzyme Water Cream I mix @cosmedix L-Ascorbic acid powder COSMEDIX - Pure Mixing Crystals Vitamin C Powder with this cream and apply. It works amazing!! Or @sundayriley C.E.O vitamin C rich cream SUNDAY RILEY - C.E.O. Vitamin C Rich Hydration Cream 9. @tula protect +glow SPF 30 TULA SKINCARE - Daily Sunscreen Gel Broad Spectrum SPF 30 10. (When I'm heading out) Supergoop! - Unseen Sunscreen Broad Spectrum SPF 40 ✨ PM routine : 1. @naturium BHA toner 2. @naturium Alpha arbutin 1% essence 3. @naturium Alpha arbutin 2% serum 4. @curology Formula (This has Azelaic acid 8% and Niacinamide 4%) Curology - Curology formula 5. @sundayriley A+ Retinol serum (Two-three nights per week) SUNDAY RILEY - A+ High-Dose Retinol Serum 6. (Once or twice a week instead of Retinol and Curology formula) The Ordinary - Glycolic Acid 7% Toning Solution / SUNDAY RILEY - Good Genes Lactic Acid Treatment 6. I keep changing my night moisturizer, I use a gel/light moisturizer.

Fall in love with my morning routine 🍁
Anyone else love taking their time to do their skincare routine in the morning?! ⠀ Now I don’t have time to do this entire routine every morning but most days I love waking up an extra 5 minutes early just to do my in depth routine. ⠀ With the colder months coming and mascne still being a thing in my life hydration is key for me ⠀ Here’s a breakdown of my morning routine 🍁 cleanser: I have been loving the @instanatural_beauty vitamin c cleanser in the morning. It’s not only gentle but helps to brighten my complexion which is everything I look for especially during these dreary cold months insta natural - Vitamin C Cleanser, Anti-Aging ⠀ 🍁 vitamin c: I have been using the @paulaschoice C15 super booster for a few months now. I have to say it’s not necessarily my favorite and I definitely miss my @farmacybeauty very cherry. It’s more of a liquid serum and does cause a slight tingle but overall I don’t hate it. PAULA'S CHOICE - Resist C15 Super Booster ⠀ 🍁 Hylauronic acid: @earthharbor Celestine is my one true love! Not only does it smell amazing but it’s not sticky on my skin and keeps it hydrated all day long. EARTH HARBOR - Celestine Hydra-Plumping Peptide Serum ⠀ 🍁 moisturizer: @katesomervilleskincare goat milk moisturizer is perfect for the AM. It’s light enough to not be too heavy on your skin but gives the perfect amount of hydration. It’s a silky formula and I love it! Kate Somerville - Goat Milk Moisturizing Cream ⠀ 🍁 Face oil: Now I haven’t always been a face oil gal! I have normal-combination skin so I don’t suffer from dry skin much but with masks I find that breathing back onto my skin all day dries out my chin terribly. I like to use @sundayriley ceo glow every morning to not only nourish my skin but to help give it even more of a brightening boost! SUNDAY RILEY - C.E.O. Glow Vitamin C and Turmeric Face Oil ⠀ Have you tried any of these products in my AM routine?

Vitamins for your FACE 🍊🤯
So, the best part of the Sephora checkout (in store or online) is the TINY THINGS 👶 and the FREE SAMPLES 🆓. This is a fact. And what happens to all these littles? They are subjected to a very brief testing period also known as JUDGEMENT DAY 🧐 Some: ✨ Are used once and handed off to friends/relatives. The old “this didn’t work for me” hand off 🤝 ✨ Are used to the end of the contents and branded a solid “meh” 😕 ✨ Cause irritation, smell funky 🥴 or otherwise “bad vibes” and are tossed in the bin 🗑 And finally, rarely, a little guy comes along that you keep reaching for, hoping there’s still a little left. After he’s empty you find yourself thinking about him during your skincare routine. It’s time ⏰ He’s getting UPGRADED ✅ And this is how SUNDAY RILEY - C.E.O. Glow Vitamin C and Turmeric Face Oil 🍊 made its way into my daily routine. I added the sample mostly because of the name (#girlboss 👸🏻) and the vitamin c as I’ve tried a couple vitamin c serums that haven’t won me over. The oil goes on light and absorbs fairly quickly, I usually give it ten minutes or so to sink in after cleansing 🧼 Didn’t cause me breakouts or redness, does smell a little like a health food store 💊 (I blame the turmeric) And it makes my face feel so NICE 🥰 So soft and dark spots are fading and just gives me the indescribable GLOW 💡 In conclusion: it is good ✔️Avoided the bin and made its way into regular rotation. What samples are you hooked on now 🤔 ???

TWO WEEK DIFFERENCE!
I’m thrilled to share my Before & After of just TWO WEEKS of progress after switching to an almost all Sunday Riley routine (and face masking 5-6 times a week!).

RENTINOIDs: the BEST super ingredient
🌸 note: two of the products in my picture are prescription only, high grade retinoids. but i have tagged their drug store dupes that are the SAME product with a lower concentration 🌸 WHAT IS A RETINOL? in the most basic form, a retinoid is a form of VITAMIN A which encourages skin cells to break down and turn over faster, resulting in reduction of acne, wrinkles, dark spots and signs of aging. It promotes collagen production, unclogs pores, and reduces scarring. its actually thickens skin, preventing wrinkles from forming ☀️☀️ALWAYS USE AN SPF WITH RETINOIDS☀️☀️ because your skin cells are dying and regenerating so quickly, you are much more prone to sunburns. And we know sunburns are literally life-threatening they vary HIGHLY in strength (weak to strong list)  - retinoid esters: The weakest version of a retinoid, but is good for sensitive skin, surface level  retinol: found in a variety of products, works on the cellular level of skin - adapalene (differin): Used to be prescription only but can now be found in a low-dose age in most drug stores. penetrates deeper and slows the production of sebum with faster cell turnover - retinoic acid (Retin-A/tretinoin): works deeper in the skin, can produce overnight results in the form of dead skin peeling. Very advanced skin cell turnover, as it penetrates and stimulates cell death and production. Skin can become very sensitive, irritated , and red - isotretinoin (Accutane): essentially sebum production is very limited and skin cell turnover is dramatically increased. on ingestible medication that will make your skin peel, dry out, and really kill acne. It’s prescription only but very effective. 🌸 products i use! prescription only: ADAPALENE 0.3% dupe: DIFFERIN - DIFFERIN Acne Treatment Gel ADAPALENE is the primary form of retinol in this product. this has been my go to product for years, it makes me less sun sensitive then Retin-A 0.05%, while still giving me excellent skin cell turnover and anti aging benefits. It helped my skin go from absolute shiz to a much cleaner glowing face (see 4th pic) prescription only: RETIN-A 0.05% dupe: janssen - Retino-A 0.05% Tretinoin Cream TRETENOIN is the primary form of retinoid in this product. these two may actually be the same product, but the one that I have I know is usually prescription grade. it will make your skin peel overnight, so I use it as a spot treatment if I get any deep set nodular acne. i used this for a couple years but it made me really sun sensitive, it is very strong! luxury brand: SUNDAY RILEY - A+ High-Dose Retinol Serum RETINOL ESTER and CoQ10 are the primary forms of retinal in this product. this claims to have a 6.5% blend of stabilize retinoids and botanical retinoid alternative extracts. I think that it is incredibly overpriced for what it is. There are very similar dupes such as those from the inkey list and the ordinary

NIACINAMIDE: Trendy Fad or True Love?
We have all seen the rise of niacinamide in skincare marketing over the last year. So, what the HECK is Niacinamide? What’s it good for? Well, niacinamide is a form of vitamin B3 that works with your skin’s natural composition to minimize the appearance of pores, improve uneven skin tone, soften fine lines and wrinkles, and strengthen your skin barrier. It’s a water soluble ingredient so it can pretty easily be added into an existing formula as an additional benefit. You’ll see niacinamide in some anti-aging products, but recently we are seeing niacinamide in a lot of acne-fighting and acne-preventive ingredients. Since niacinamide helps your pores, it can help reduce and heal acne breakouts. Niacinamide can be really powerful when combined with other exfoliating and/or acne fighting ingredients (sensitive skin beware!), but you should never mix niacinamide with vitamin c—their chemical makeup renders each other inactive/useless when combined. Let’s get into some niacinamide products and my thoughts on each: iNNBEAUTY PROJECT - Down To Tone Resurfacing Toner Exfoliating Toner I’m rating this formula a 3/5. Acid toners aren’t my favorite as someone with sensitive skin, and this formula includes AHAs, BHAs, Niacinamide, as well as a ton of other ingredients. InnBeauty Project touts this as a P50 dupe and they so say on the bottle to only use this 3 times a week. It’s just too much for my sensitive skin I think. It’s also $26 for 3.4oz so it won’t last more than a month or so with consistent use. I just think there are better options out there. PAULA'S CHOICE - 10% Niacinamide Booster this one is FIREEEE. Like. Non ironically. This product has become one of my holy grails in the past year because of its ability to mix into my serums and moisturizers without issue. It’s a 10% niacinamide formula without anything else to really give you the true benefit without overdoing it in your routine. It’s kind of pricey ($44 for .67oz) but you only need 1-2 drops of it and my partner and I have been using it consistently for 6+ months and we still have some left in our bottle! I highly recommend this to oily and/or acne prone skin types. SUMMER FRIDAYS - Jet Lag Mask I’ve talked about this product before—how it’s incorrectly marketed as a hydrating mask when the first few ingredients are “polishing.” Niacinamide being one of them! It’s my favorite “bright and tight” overnight mask and I’d recommend trying a sample or mini size before investing in a full size. I’m on my second tube and I use it 2-3 times a week strictly as an overnight mask. 5/5 (even though it’s $48) SUNDAY RILEY - Saturn Sulfur Acne Treatment Mask this one is my lesser known favorite. The sulfuric component helps get rid of painful acne while niacinamide helps keep it away. It’s pretty expensive ($55 for 2oz) but has an 18 month shelf life. I use this 1-2x monthly. 5/5 #CheriePartner

Sunday Riley Sulfur Acne Treatment Mask
This mask claims to clear up blemishes and prevent new breakouts. ❗️Note the packaging and title of this product have changed since I purchased this, but the claims and ingredients are very similar. Now it’s titled “spot treatment” instead of “treatment mask”.❗️ 🗝Key Ingredients🗝 Sulfur helps to dry up acne. It has also been shown to kill bacteria, reduce inflammation, and help exfoliate the skin. Sulfur is more gentle than some other acne fighters like benzoyl peroxide, so this can be a good alternative for more sensitive skin types. Niacinamide can treat many skin conditions. It strengthens the skin barrier, reduces signs of aging, brightens the skin, and can help prevent clogged pores. Zinc PCA helps to control oil production. It also has skin conditioning and antibacterial properties. Bentonite clay soaks up excess oil and has been shown to be wound healing. Manuka oil has strong anti bacterial and antioxidant properties. This oil is also soothing and can help fight inflammation. Tea tree oil is an essential oil that has antibacterial, anti fungal, anti microbial, anti septic... all the ‘anti’s’! I typically avoid essential oil and fragrance in my skin care, but this is one essential oil that I’m not allergic to (and I’m grateful for that). Contains other beneficial plant extracts. 🌱 No synthetic fragrance. ✅ Vegan and cruelty free. 🐒 The smell of this mask is quite strong. Sulfur smells like rotten eggs, and tea tree has a strong scent as well. Both are very noticeable in this mask. However, if you can move past that, this is an excellent product. I have used this quite a few times and my skin always looks and feels so clean and fresh when I rinse it off, but never too dry. I notice a lot of acne fighting and clay masks can be quite drying and irritating on my sensitive skin but I don’t get that reaction with this product at all. I recently used this on a new nodule and I woke up to a smaller, less inflamed spot. The anti inflammation properties of this mask are undeniable! I see this being helpful for the ‘maskne’ many people are struggling with right now. Happy healing, friends!🌻

Hormonal/Cystic Acne approved - They WORK
If you know me, you know The Ordinary is my first favorite brand and Sunday Riley is always competing hard with it to be on my Faves list. I am obsessed with these picks from them. I have my reasons to love this brand these products. Being Acne prone and dealing with a lot of skin texture, dullness and hyperpigmentation I always am looking for products that 'work'! No BS simply work, and these products work for me. I have seen dramatic changes in my skin when I use these. I'm going to order these from the most effective and my favorites to the least! Sunday Riley was one brand which was hell expensive for me but on the other side they worked really well. I don't purchase them often as I purchase TO, but whenever I can I don't rethink. If you want products that work these are the ones: 1. A+ Retinoid SUNDAY RILEY - A+ High-Dose Retinol Serum - This is my most favorite and most picked one from Sunday Riley. Guys, take my word on it this stuff is amazing. I love retinol and I know my skin responds in a certain way when I apply Retinoids. So, if some retinoids don't show the expected results I know they're not the ones for me. This Retinoid made my skin so soft, supple and healthy while taking care of those stubborn Hormonal cystic acne. Also, it exfoliates amazingly and reduces the look of PIH. ✨Exfoliates well ✨Reduces look of fine lines and wrinkles ✨Reduces Hyperpigmentation (PIH, Melasma) ✨Brightens and tightens skin ✨Makes skin soft and reduces irregular texture 2. Tidal SUNDAY RILEY - Tidal Brightening Enzyme Water Cream - This is second most loved product from SR. It's because it has Alpha Arbutin in it. Alpha Arbutin is an amazing brightening Anti-Oxidant that slows down the melanin production leading to reducing hyperpigmentation. This cream is actually a lightweight gel that gets absorbed in skin quickly and I have experienced a brighter, healthier skin with it. ✨Brightens complexion ✨Reduces Hyperpigmentation, slows down melanin production ✨Gel like texture doesn't sit heavy on skin ✨You can mix L-ascorbic powder or any vitamin C serum with it to boost it's brightening effect. 3. Vitamin C SUNDAY RILEY - C.E.O. Vitamin C Rich Hydration Cream - I love this cream in winters because of it's thick but hydrating texture. Love this cream as it's an amazing moisturizer for daytime regimen. ✨ Relatively thick and creamy ✨Hydrates skin ✨Reduces hyperpigmentation ✨Tightens skin and makes it plump ✨Lasts long because you only need a pea size with it 4. Lactic acid SUNDAY RILEY - Good Genes Glycolic Acid Treatment - This is an amazing product for someone who is new to AHAs and chemical exfoliation. It exfoliates skin in a very gentle way and doesn't irritate skin. I like the creamy, lightweight formula that is equally effective as serum or toners. ✨Mildly exfoliates ✨Doesn't irritate skin ✨Creamy formula that doesn't feel heavy ✨Makes skin softer and reduces texture in just one use ( Mainly because of Lactic acid/ AHA) 5. Martian SUNDAY RILEY - Martian Mattifying Melting Water-Gel Toner - This toner has an interesting formula, it comes out as foamy gel into watery toner when it touches skin! It's amazing. It's a great product for acne prone skin and people with active acne. It has Bentonite clay, green tea, witch hazel, and marshmallow extract helps chill out redness, reduce excess oil, and tighten pores. ✨ Matte, shine-free finish ✨Slightly cooling and soothing when applied ✨Reduces the redness and inflammation ✨Reduces skin irritation ✨Use this after Thermal water and you'll find it more soothing ✨Witch hazel in this formula doesn't work as astringent and doesn't strip skin.

Help sort out my routine for late 30s skin
Hi all! Welcome to skin in your late 30s. I am 37 and am at that wonderful crossroads between younger and older skin, meaning that I still get monthly hormonal jawline acne, have an oily t-zone... yet also the beginnings of wrinkles, plus large pores and dark spots from acne scars and sun damage. I have a number of products that I have been using but it’s been a little random as to when I use them. I also just got some direct acids and I’m looking for direction on when to use them in my routine. Here’s what I have: Cleansers innisfree - Jeju Volcanic Pore Cleansing Foam DERMA•E - Anti-Wrinkle Cleanser Kiehl's - Midnight Recovery Botanical Cleansing Oil AM toner SUNDAY RILEY - Martian Mattifying Melting Water-Gel Toner PM toner The Ordinary - Glycolic Acid 7% Toning Solution Eye cream BURT’S BEES - Renewal Smoothing Eye Cream Looking for recs! Serums / Treatments / Acids The Ordinary - Hyaluronic Acid 2% + B5 The Ordinary - Niacinamide 10% + Zinc 1% The Ordinary - Alpha Arbutin 2% + HA The Ordinary - Azelaic Acid Suspension 10% The Ordinary - Lactic Acid 10% + HA THE inkey LIST - Q10 Antioxidant Serum SUNDAY RILEY - Luna Retinol Sleeping Night Oil Masks and peels The Ordinary - AHA 30% + BHA 2% Peeling Solution Several mud based masks- Mudmasky, Generation Clay Moisturizers Embryolisse - Lait-Crème Concentré Limited Edition London THE inkey LIST - Multi-Biotic The Ordinary - 100% Organic Cold Pressed Rose Hip Seed Oil PAULA'S CHOICE - Clear Oil-Free Moisturizer philosophy - Purity Made Simple Oil Free Mattifying Moisturizer And since I know pores are an issue for me I also have other Inkey products I haven’t tried yet in the THE inkey LIST - The Pore Wonders Set I really like a lot of these products but I don’t feel I am putting them on in the right order. I also think I may be missing something to really help with my dark spots? Any advice? Thanks!!

can't just stick to one regimen 😬 plz help!
Ok ppl, I've bought quite a few things to kick start a AM routine and a PM routine but it seems like I just can't stick to one or two items 😑 which is probably why I'm not seeing great results 😕 can yall help me stick to one or maybe even cancel out some things??? a little FYI: I have Dry sometimes sensitive skin (mostly dry tho). Got a couple acne scars but nothing too serious. Lots of black heads 😣 i feel because im putting too much product on my face im getting alot of black heads around my cheeks and chin. so in the AM I have a couple cleansers I like to use: TATCHA - The Rice Wash Skin-Softening Cleanser or the CeraVe - Hydrating Face Cleanser For Normal To Dry Skin next I put Neutrogena - Hydro Boost Hydrating Serum i like it but I want something more hydrating. I also have OLE HENRIKSEN - Truth Serum but I've heard some negative things about it so I rarely apply it in the AM, more towards the PM. so here is where I might be doing it wrong, I put on CeraVe - Mineral Sunscreen Lotion SPF 50 for Body with Zinc Oxide before my moisturizer. Now I like the sunscreen, it does have that white cast but once I put moisturizer it kinda goes away. I do have the Supergoop! - Unseen Sunscreen Broad Spectrum SPF 40 which i alternate depending on what ill be doing that day. lastly, I have tons of moisturizers. I need something that will hydrate my face all day or at least all day. I have the TATCHA - The Dewy Skin Cream which i LOVE but I hate using it everyday cuz 1. it's EXPENSIVE and 2. it can be a bit too hydrating where it looks oily toward the end of the day. I like using this one more at night time. Another moisturizer I use is the OLE HENRIKSEN - C-Rush Vitamin C Gel Moisturizer also heard negative things about so I'll wear it more for the PM. I have SUNDAY RILEY - C.E.O. Vitamin C Rich Hydration Cream which is AMAZING! 👏👏 this gives me just the right amount of hydration and it doesn't feel heavy or tacky like the CeraVe - CeraVe Moisturising Cream which i rather use at night as well. This one doesn't give me as much hydration as I would like. oh and for toners the only thing I have is THAYERS - Rose Petal Facial Toner its ok, if anyone else has recommendations plz feel free to drop some info plz 🙏 Anywho, this is pretty much what I use for both AM and PM. I do have 2 exfoliaters the Murad - AHA/BHA Exfoliating Cleanser and OLE HENRIKSEN - Transforming Walnut Scrub which I will alternate as well. If anyone has any recommendations or tips for ya girl PLZ feel free. Lmk if I need to add or take out some of the things I use. Can't wait to see your guy's feedback 🤗😓

My TOP skincare products against Maskne 😷
Since maybe around March, here on the east coast we were told to start wearing face masks, face shields, or bandanas to cover our mouth and nose. And around that time I also began to work from home, meaning I personally didn’t have to wear a mask for most of the time since I was home alone. However, on weekends I would go out and wear a mask! My experience with Maskne is different because I have oily combo skin but with the cold weather coming I also deal with dry winter skin 😑. Basically your girl deals with normal, oily, and dry patches on her face! Since my dry spots occur around my mouth aka the mask hot spot, my top skincare products for dealing wjth “Maskne” are different. Maskne for me is the friction that causes the mask to leave irritated skin and then some breakouts! Again this is what works for me! I noticed that days I don’t apply the sufficient moisturizer on my face the underneath of the mask would cause insufferable irritation that I would scratch and then lead to breakouts because of me touching my face. But when I do apply the right products like SUNDAY RILEY - C.E.O. Vitamin C Rich Hydration Cream and YU.BE - Moisturizing Skin Cream then the mask wouldn’t irritate, my skin didn’t feel dry, and my face would feel rejuvenated under the mask. I know that there are not many out there who have the three main skin concerns all on their face. But if you’re here, I hope this helps you like it’s helped me! The first product of the Sunday Riley CEO Vitamin C Rich Hydration Cream ($65.00 - 1.7 oz) was gifted to me a while back and just recently started using it since it was such intense moisture! It has a lovely citrus scent but not too overpowering that it makes you dizzy. And the consistency is thick but easy to apply to the face and most importantly around the area your mask will cover! The main ingredient of vitamin C is perfect for providing powerful antioxidant support! The amount of hydration it provides is amazing which is ideal for me since I get dry patches in the cold weather around my mouth. I apply this cream post face wash and before I apply makeup. Typically this product is enough to combat any sigh of maskne, but sometimes you need more! Enter my Yube Moisturizing Skin Cream! In the pictures I have the sample size I carry on my purse! This is an extra cream that transforms and revitalizes dry skin! A tube retails for $16.00 (1 fl oz). The two main ingredients are pure glycerin and hyaluronic acid, which create a protective barrier over the skin! It doesn’t have much of a scent except for a light one that you barely pick up on. I’ve been using this product for over three years and it always works for repairing my skin and now preventing maskne from overtaking my skin. Again, I’m sure I’m not the only one who deals with this predicament and I hope it can help others. #CheriePartner

My fall skincare routine! 🍁🍂✨
Summer’s over and here comes fall! Drier and cooler weather means my skin will get more dehydrated and I’ll need a different skincare to keep it healthy. During this time I like to use brightening serums to get rid of my small dark spots that have appeared during summer/being out in the sun all the time. My face definitely feels the cool air and I need more moisturizer to keep it soft and not dry. I love starting off with my kiehls ultra facial cleanser. This never fails. It never strips my skin, it removes all the makeup I’ve been wearing and if I’m bare faced it doesn’t remove my natural oils. It’s a liquidy gel consistency and has a small cleansing scent. This is one I always recommend to people. Kiehl's - Ultra Facial Cleanser I follow with the Sunday Riley ceo vitamin c brightening serum. I started with a sample I received in my Sephora order and fell in love with it. On my forehead I had a small sun spot and over time this helped fade it out. I was incredibly impressed! This didn’t dry out my skin, it actually gave my skin moisture. The texture is more of a liquidy moisturizer. It has a faint citrus 🍊 smell that I love. It also didn’t cause a reaction on my sensitive skin! SUNDAY RILEY - CEO 15% Vitamin C Brightening Serum After I apply moisturizer on. This elf holy hydration cream is one that I’ve been loving a lot this year. It’s one I keep rebuying, this is my third purchase! Super soft and lightweight. This kinda melts into your skin a bit. This feels amazing on my really oily forehead and dry cheeks. e.l.f. - Holy Hydration! Face Cream Next is eye cream. I’m currently using the glamglow bright eyes illuminating anti-fatigue eye cream. This is an ok product. I got this in a Ipsy bag. It’s a little thick, which most eye creams are, and it feels nice. It moisturizes my under eyes really well but I don’t see the “anti-fatigue” affect. Nothing wrong with this product but I’ve seen similar or better results with more affordable ones. I wouldn’t repurchase this. Tip✨ use eye cream to apply on your upper lip. That skin is also fairly prone to wrinkles as well so might as well use the cream to help prevent. GLAMGLOW - BRIGHTEYES Illuminating Anti-Fatigue Eye Cream On days that my skin is extra dry or I want some radiance I use the drunk elephant f-balm electrolyte water facial cream/mask. I try to prevent my skin getting too dehydrated by using this every other day. This is a lightweight product but omg this has incredibly hydrated my face a lot. It has small little beads that melt on skin contact. This doesn’t have a smell which is great. DRUNK ELEPHANT - F-Balm Electrolyte Waterfacial Mask Don’t forget about lips! I’m currently finishing up my fresh sugar lemon 🍋 lip balm. It hydrate my lips nicely. It’s not one of those sticky balms, it glides on and doesn’t dry out fast. fresh - Sugar Lemon Hydrating Lip Balm

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

Summer Fridays Jet Lag Mask- I
Summer Fridays Jet Lag Mask- I like to use this as an overnight mask and wash off in the morning Acure Blue Tansy Night Oil- maybe my favorite night oil of all time? I love everything about this from the texture to how it makes my skin feel. It’s a powerhouse and affordable! Sunday Riley Tidal Cream- I enjoy this cream. It’s supposed to hydrate and help fade dark spots. I haven’t reached for it enough to share my thoughts. ▫️ Rosen Tingling Mud Mask- I don’t generally have acne prone skin but I love the tingle of this mask and would recommend Rosen for anyone who is trying to find products to help clear breakouts and keep them at bay. Complex Beauty Pout Protector Lip Mask- This is a thicker lip oil that I like to spread on my lips before bed. I have been applying a balm on top to really lock in the mask. I live the vanilla tones!

Acne mask. Sulfur masks smell
Acne mask. Sulfur masks smell I get it but like ew. It is a bit tingly and burn-y so probably not for me. I don’t have a lot of acne but noticed I’ve been more oily and had four new pimples this morning. Just got this mask from Ipsy will probably not buy the full size.
