New Skincare Journey- Tips welcomes
Hi everyone, I am so excited to start this new journey. The pictures I uploaded is a depiction of my current skin. Following doing the The Ordinary - AHA 30% + BHA 2% Peeling Solution, patting dry and then applying the CeraVe - Daily Moisturizing Lotion For Normal To Dry Skinand Bio-Oil - Multiuse Skincare Oil. I suffer for hormonal acne (not that bad) and post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation. I have had these issues since middle school, with periods of clear skin. I have done some research and this is what I am going to start are my skincare routine starting tomorrow. Am Routine I am going to start my routine off with the essano - Rosehip Gentle Facial Cleansing Micellar Water. Then I will use the Aveeno - MaxGlow Infusion Drops, followed by the Clean&Clear - Advantage Acne Spot Treatment. Then the CeraVe - Daily Moisturizing Lotion For Normal To Dry Skinand my favorite Neutrogena - Hydro Boost Sunscreen SPF 50 . This the only daily sunscreen that I have used and I love how soft and bright ir leaves my skin. I was having trouble finding a face oil, but the Bio-Oil - Multiuse Skincare Oilreceived a lot of good reviews from people with similar experiences so I thought it would be a good product to try. Pm Routine I am going to start my routine off with the essano - Rosehip Gentle Facial Cleansing Micellar Water again. Then I will use the The Ordinary - Hyaluronic Acid 2% + B5, followed by the Clean&Clear - Advantage Acne Spot Treatment. Then the CeraVe - Daily Moisturizing Lotion For Normal To Dry Skinand Bio-Oil - Multiuse Skincare Oil. On Sundays (my first day) At night, I will continue to wash my face with warm water, beforing patting dry and applying The Ordinary - AHA 30% + BHA 2% Peeling Solution. This is my third time using this product, I only use it once a week. The last two times I apply a niamincide-based moisturizer afterward and I think it caused my skin to break out. I do see my blemishes lightening with this product, so I will continue to use it for 10 minutes once a week. After I rinse and pat dry, I will apply the CeraVe - Daily Moisturizing Lotion For Normal To Dry Skin. After my first use, I do feel my skin to feel more elastic and moisturized, but the smell is a bit unappealing. Following with the Bio-Oil - Multiuse Skincare Oil, I currently have no comments on this product. I am open to any assistance or concerns. I look forward to journaling this journey ❤️

Nighttime routine for combination skin ✨
Hi! I’ve been using every product reviewed for at least 3 weeks & my main concerns are fine lines, blemishes and post acne hyperpigmentation! Let me know your thoughts & recommendations 💕 Cleanser: I start with the BANILA CO - Clean It Zero 3-in-1 Cleansing Balm the 1st balm cleanser I’ve used & so far so good! This removes waterproof mascara to varying degrees of success but all other makeup gets blitzed with this. There is no real fragrance & I’ve not found it drying! Then I use the CeraVe - Hydrating Facial Cleanser which I’ve reviewed in my morning skincare routine post Exfoliator: 2-3 times a week I use the Neutrogena - Bright Boost Resurfacing Micro Polish which is the only AHA product in my routine. It has a physical exfoliant texture so I v gently massage it into wet skin and leave it for about a minute. I don’t experience any redness or tingling & my skin does feel very smooth after. I don’t use my retinol on nights I use this! Toner: On a damp face I use the LANEIGE - Cream Skin Toner & Moisturizer which I’ve reviewed in my morning skincare routine post Serums: Then I use The Ordinary - Hyaluronic Acid 2% + B5 followed by The Ordinary - Niacinamide 10% + Zinc 1% which I’ve reviewed in my morning skincare routine post Moisturiser: I’ve been obsessed with CeraVe - SA Smoothing Cream ever since I got it. It has Urea (great for eczema) & salicylic acid so it’s very hydrating whilst also working against acne. I use this for my bikini line & any back acne I get (full review on my page) When I use the brightening polish I switch out the above for sukin - Facial Moisturiser 125ml so I’m not combining BHA’s & AHA’s. This is a solid, basic moisturiser that hasn’t broken me out & sinks in quickly. It’s rich in jojoba & avocado oil so I tend to skip face oils when I use this! Retinol: after using the neutrogena SA retinol for 6 months & seeing no results I switched to indeed LABORATORIES - Retinol Reface : Skin Resurfacer & Wrinkle Repair I’ve had no irritation & love the light texture. My skin has been feeling plumper & not dry at all. I’ve been using it 4 times a week while my skin adjusts to the higher %! I go over the bad hyperpigmentation with PALMER'S - Skin Success Anti Dark Spot Cream (I have the pump version to avoid air contact & contamination). This product WORKS. It has retinol & liquorice root extract but also seems to contain glitter? Bizarre. Then Neutrogena - Rapid Wrinkle Repair Eye Cream as I like a gentler formulation of retinol for the more delicate skin. This sinks in fast, doesn’t irritate & my dark circles have also decreased since using! Oil: finallyKiehl's - Midnight Recovery Concentrate an oldie but goldie. A great seal & smells 🔥🔥

The HYPE is real 👀
Niacinamide is a POWERHOUSE ingredient. It is one of my favorites and I love when I find it in my skincare product formulas. The Ordinary Niacinamide serum gets hyped up a lot on Instagram, TikTok and YouTube but for a good reason and that’s because it actually WORKS. Niacinamide is great for helping unclog pores, reduce texture and help keep oils under control. Another favorite Niacinamide serum of mine is the Peach and Lily Glass Skin Serum. I’m obsessed with it! Niacinamide works for my skin and I hope it would work for you! The Ordinary - Niacinamide 10% + Zinc 1% PEACH & LILY - Glass Skin Refining Serum

Ingredient Spotlight: Niacinamide
Niacinamide has been a “hot” ingredient for a while now - and for good reason! Niacinamide, which is a form of vitamin B-3, has many benefits including: •reducing the appearance of irritation •calm redness •improve the visibility of pores over time •oil regulation •improve skin texture over time •help soothe the appearance of acne and prevent future breakouts •improve fine lines and wrinkles over time •support a healthy skin barrier I have been using some form of niacinamide in my skincare courting for about a year and a half. My first niacinamide product was the GOOD MOLECULES - Niacinamide Brightening Toner , which I’ve since used up and repurchased. This toner also contains vitamin C to help brighten skin & reduce pores’ visibility. The odorless, watery texture absorbs quickly. It can be used 2x/day but I generally use 1x in the AM. My skin genuinely missed this when I didn’t have it. My skin looked a bit dull and I had some breakouts. It truly brightens my complexion and does help reduce pore visibility over time. $14 on brand’s website or Beautylish Serums are also a great way to add niacinamide into your routine. The insta natural - Niacinamide Serum is a newer addition to my routine, but I’m so impressed. This was gifted to me by the brand. I’ve been using it regularly 1x in the PM after toner for just over a month now. I lock it in with moisturizer and occasionally face oil. This serum is extra awesome, especially for super dry skin like mine, because it contains hyaluronic acid, rosemary extract, avocado oil, and vitamin E. It does smell a bit like rosemary, but does not linger. The milky texture feels so soothing, especially when my skin is irritated and extra dry. My skin looks visibly more calm and is generally clear. The reason I love this is because niacinamide *can* be irritating for some (esp. super dry or sensitive types). I previously used The Ordinary - Niacinamide 10% + Zinc 1% (used up - no photo, $6) and would experience a mild burning sensation when applied over irritated + flaky spots. It also left my face super tacky and sometimes caused pilling of products on top. I don’t recommend that one for dry or sensitive skin, and wouldn’t repurchase. The Instanatural serum does not do any of those things. It will be in my routine long-term! Plus, it’s affordable at $18 (brand’s website) and comes in a 2oz bottle. Also available on Amazon ~ $16 All brands mentioned are cruelty-free (CF), and Instanatural is leaping bunny certified (a gold standard for CF products). Please note that I am not a skincare expert. Consult your dermatologist before introducing new ingredients to your routine. #CheriePartner

Best product for dry and dull skin
I've been still using my CeraVe - Hydrating Cream-To-Foam Cleanser and of course it's going great! I've been looking for something that can give me a glow and also reduce my acne scars so I found The Ordinary - Glycolic Acid 7% Toning Solution this really have my skin a boost of glow and gave me a clearer skin. I do see my acne scars fading away but they are still visible 🙃 Since this is an acid it exfoliates the skin so I use this every other day but now I switched to every two days since the weather is getting cold and my skin tends to dry more. After application in padding motion with a cloth or cotton pad I start to pat in the product with my hands so the product could get into my skin. You will feel a tingle but after constant use you will get used to it and it goes away fast. Once I applied the toner I go in with my moisturizer, at the moment I'm using Vaseline - Extremely Dry Skin Rescue Lotion this creme is great for dry skin! I have always suffered from dry skin so this really helped me. It leaves my skin so soft and glowy. Be careful because this can get a little greasy 😶

Night Skin Care Routine for Oily Acne Prone Skin
Please note that this is what I often use for my nighttime skincareroutine. Come AM,I only use just an essence/ toner and sunblock after washing my face with a mild face wash. 🍓Cerave foaming facial cleanser (fragrance- free for normal to oily skin) - honestly wanted to try this trending cleaner and it didn’t disappoint. It is a clear gel that foams like the typical cream cleansers. So far, it works for me and i like it because it’s mild and non- stripping.CeraVe - Foaming Facial Cleanser For Normal To Oily Skin 🍓The Ordinary GlycolicAcid toning solution- I use this only twice a week and i love it because I can see the gunk on the cotton pad after each use. I use it on my UA too btw. :)The Ordinary - Glycolic Acid 7% Toning Solution 🍓Muji Booster Essence Lotion- I use this or the Laneige Skin refiner (if the air is drier) because it preps my skin for it to absorb the serums and moisturizer better. It makes the skin moist, plump just overall healthy- looking.MUJI - Boosting Essence Lotion 🍓Pearlessence Argan and Vitamin E FacialOil - I just randomly got this from Marshalls because of the packaging lol. Pleasantly surprised because it’s a nourishing face oil with a relaxing scent to boot. I took a star away bec i find the oil is not that thin thus it takes a little bit more for my face to absorb itPEARLESSENCE - Argan Oil and Vitamin E Facial Oil 🍓Human Nature Sunflower oil Eye cream - I’ve always loved the oil and was glad to try this eyecream. Have yet to see the effect but eyebags weren’t really an issue to me. The fragrance- free bouncy cream absorbed easily on the under- eye and sometimes i use it as an over- all face moisturizer.#Human Nature - sunflower oil eye cream[products]#[FiveStars] 🍓Skin Potions Peach thy Lash eyelash and eyebrow grower - Consistenly used this for a month or two and I can say it is effective in lengthening and thickening my brows and lashes. It’s not oily like castor oil and has this gel- like consistency that is not stinging to the eyes.Skin Potions - Peach Thy Lash 🍓Laneige lip sleeping mask - this cult favorite has been a staple and it’s my ride or die lipbalm/ mask/ treatment. I used petroleum jelly or lip balm before but when I tried this, I DID NOT LOOK BACK SEZ. The tub may seem small but it will last a looong time even if used daily.LANEIGE - LANEIGE Lip Sleeping Mask I find that these products work for my oily acne prone skin lately but always remember that consistency is 🔑☺️

Facial Oil for Oily, Acne-Prone Skin
I was not a facial oil person when I first started to really invest in my skin. I knew that just because I had oily skin didn't mean I should skip the moisturizer (everyone should be moisturizing!) but I couldn't find an oil that worked really well for me and made me want to keep using it. I don't think that oil and moisturizer are interchangeable, I think both have a place in your skincare routine! I tried the The Ordinary - 100% Organic Cold Pressed Rose Hip Seed Oil and could just feel it sitting on the top layer of my skin. I tried the DRUNK ELEPHANT - Virgin Marula Luxury Facial Oil which was expensive and didn't do much for me. I was over it! Finally while making my first May Lindstrom purchase of the Honey Mud and Problem Solver masks I chose to try a sample of the may lindstrom skin - The Youth Dew and it was magical. The brand calls it a serum, but it's the most indulgent facial oil I've tried. It's expensive at $140 but the bottle lasted me an entire year of consistent use and always felt like a treat for my skin. So what's in it? Well all the good stuff! Antioxidants, coenzyme-Q10, avocado oil, meadowfoam seed oil, borage oil, rosehip oil, evening primrose oil, jojoba oil - the list goes on and on. It's a thick, orange oil that smells botanical and beautiful. It's for acne-prone skin and helps to balance, but even those with dry skin would love this! It sinks deeply into the skin and really just makes my skin so happy and healthy! I love it and need to repurchase, but it's also made me way more open to trying other facial oils! Now I look for oils with similar ingredients and have found some other favorites - like the deviant - Facial Oil ! I apply Youth Dew at either my serum step or as my last step before SPF. If I apply it as a serum I use other hydrating mists and serums before to be sure my skin gets hydration! #CheriePartner

My skincare journey : the first two pic are now - the last two before I started .🙊☹️🥺 🥺 I started my routine with the Ordinary on August ... My skin is sensitive , I’m acne prone, I have acne scars , hyperpigmentation from my pregnancy , couple fine lines ,dryness and oily (combination type lol my skin has a mind of her own ) I also have big pores ☹️ I tried so many products before and some of them work for a while but stop working right after . Glad to say so far that this 5 products has being giving me back a bit of confidence and I also still working on it . I hope this help more of you . The Ordinary - Alpha Arbutin 2% + HA is great for fade dark spots . The Ordinary - Niacinamide 10% + Zinc 1% i use it on my whole face to target my oiliness . But you have to conviene this first two products with regular exfoliation and sunscreen . The Ordinary - 100% Organic Cold Pressed Rose Hip Seed Oil is great for brighten and hydrate skin . The Ordinary - Caffeine Solution 5% + EGCG amazing for puffy eyes ! Love it ! The Ordinary - Granactive Retinoid 2% Emulsion this product is just perfect for fine lines and wrinkles ! 💗💗

FIRST POST/ONE WEEK RESULTS ✨
Hi there! I’m so excited to share my skincare journey with all of you and hopefully we can learn from each other’s experiences. I’ve already learned a lot from Cherie and that’s why I decided to purchase some products from The Ordinary and give them a try to save my skin. I have oily skin and as you can see I’m struggling with acne, dark spots, and dark circles. Not sure what type of acne I have, but it seems hormonal to me. I started to break out like this about two months ago. Before that, I’d break out once in a while during my period or when eating too much junk food. A week ago (Oct. 10th), I started the following skincare routine: AM - Cleanse Cetaphil - Cetaphil Gentle Foaming Cleanser - Treat The Ordinary - Niacinamide 10% + Zinc 1% and The Ordinary - Caffeine Solution 5% + EGCG (I think I had a reaction to caffeine solution - my right eye started itching so I discontinued it from now) - Moisturize CeraVe - AM Facial Moisturizing Lotion SPF 30 PM - Remove makeup CeraVe - Makeup Removing Cleanser Cloths - Cleanse Cetaphil - Cetaphil Gentle Foaming Cleanser - Treat The Ordinary - Niacinamide 10% + Zinc 1% - Moisturize CeraVe - Daily Moisturizing Lotion For Normal To Dry Skin Please swipe to see the results so far! I’m really happy with The Ordinary - Niacinamide 10% + Zinc 1% since it’s clearing out the acne. My face feels and looks better and I think there’s a small improvement. I’d love to hear your advice and suggestions! Also, I’d like to implement The Ordinary - Glycolic Acid 7% Toning Solutionand The Ordinary - AHA 30% + BHA 2% Peeling Solutionto my skincare routine. Any suggestions on how/when to use them? Thank you in advance!

Skin Update!
Hey guys, I thought that I’d give a quick skin update! Overall my skin has really improved it’s a little brighter and healthier, I am getting some small spots but I’m not really expecting perfection. I’ve started using some new products: Swisse - Olive Leaf Deep Cleansing Gel - this a very effective and gentle cleanser for oily skin - it keeps my skin reasonably clear and doesn’t leave it feeling strip or dry, which I’m definitely happy about - I think the small bumps are because of of the glycolic and salicylic acid drawing the nasties out! ALAFFIA - Coconut Face Toner - hydration, hydration, hydration 💦 - leaves my skin glowing The Ordinary - Natural Moisturizing Factors + HA - light weight moisturiser that doesn’t leave the skin greasy - actually leaves the skin super soft - I don’t like that it leaves like white buts on my face 🥴 The Ordinary - Niacinamide 10% + Zinc 1% - this is golden, literally pulled the blemishes out of my skin - controls oil so that I’m glowing and not shinning - gonna so I solo post on it cause chiiillllldddd!!! Thanks for reading my loves!!

New Beauty Buy 100% Plant-Derived Hemi-Squalane
Happy Wednesday 😃 Wanted to jump on board and promote my new beauty buyThe Ordinary - 100% Plant-Derived Hemi-Squalane My Cherie report indicates I have damaged hair and I recently had my hair done so I thought I’ll need some additional hydration. Squalane is derived by hydrogenation of squalene. It is naturally present in the skin lipid barrier of plants, animals and humans, preventing moisture loss while restoring skin suppleness and flexibility. The Ordinary indicate it’s also a great hair treatment too. I also ordered:  The Ordinary - Hyaluronic Acid 2% + B5for hydration 💦 The Ordinary - ''Buffet'' target signs of ageing and The Ordinary - Niacinamide 10% + Zinc 1%for blemishes I expect these goodies to arrive Friday 👏🏽👏🏽👏🏽: I chose The Ordinary because it’s vegan 🌱 cruelty-free and paraben free and, I read a load of good reviews from creators. Thanks fellow creators! 😁 I’ll update you on the results in the near future. 😉 Hope you’re having a great day. Jade

my night routine! (oily/acne prone)
I've only been practicing skin care for 3 months! I've always washed my face and moisturized sporadically.... but never really took the time to the care of my face. my skin was oily, full of huge pores, and I was prone to crazy breakouts that I picked at due to an anxiety disorder. needless to say, snapchat filters were my best friend. that changed with one of the products on this list! but I'll get to that later. I'm going to list them in order of my routine. yesto - Tomatoes Detoxifying Charcoal DIY Powder To Paste Mask – feelunique.com Exclusive this product is great. it cleans and gently exfoliates my face without being overdrying or harsh. leave my skin feeling soft! re:vital renew glycolic acid/kelp toner- this was an impulse buy at old navy! lol. but it definitely helps my skin regenerate. the only negative is sometimes after using it, my makeup might pill on dead skin the next day. but it comes off easily with a fluffy brush. The Ordinary - ''Buffet'' this is the latest product in my routine. I use it at night but I am going to add it into my morning routine as well. I like this product a lot and I've noticed a slight decrease in my forehead lines. I'm excited to see more results. Fourth Ray - Remedy 10% Niacinamide Serum honestly this stuff is my holy grail. I'm going to get the ordinarys niacinamide after this bottle is gone. but this stuff was my first serum I've ever used, and when I tell you it changed my face, it completely changed my face. my oil production went down. my pores got smaller. my face is so soft and I hardly ever break out anymore. can't recommend this enough! The Ordinary - Hyaluronic Acid 2% + B5 once I started using this on a wet face instead of dry i noticed such a difference in the performance! it makes my face so soft and glowy! it doesn't feel heavy or make me shiny. The Ordinary - Caffeine Solution 5% + EGCG I know this stuff doesn't work miracles, but honestly I love what it does for my eyes. there's a noticeable difference in the skin around and under my eyes immediately after I use it, and I've noticed less puffiness and darkness overall. love this stuff. the last thing in the unmarked green bottle is my homemade face oil. face oils are so easy to make and customize to your skins needs! I used almond oil for a carrier oil. it has a comedogenic rating of 2, which means it is a moderately low risk, which is fine for most skin types but may clog pores for some people. it works well for me. I also mixed high quality clove and peppermint oils into it. peppermint oil is a naturally antibacterial and antiseptic oil that is good against acne. clove oil helps reduce sagging and has anti aging properties. its easy and relatively cheap to make your own face oil! I started off with 2 drops a night for my whole face and now I do 4. its a great way to get extra moisture at night! what are your favorite products to use at night?

Lactic acid?
I purchased The Ordinary - Lactic Acid 10% + HA around 2 months ago and have probably used it only 3-5 times mainly because my skin was extremely dry while trying to figure out my new routine and the lactic acid would burn sensitive areas of my face. Now that i’ve figured out a steady routine i’m ready to give this product another try but i’m unsure how to incorporate it into my routine in a way that will be beneficial, i don’t get many breakouts i have some texture on my chin forehead and cheeks which is what i got this product for. Let me know how you use Lactic acid in your skincare routine!❤️

I’ve only used it for a little
I’ve only used it for a little bit but it seems to me that it’s working. it’s just super strong so it’s important to only do it once a week for ten minutes. The Ordinary - AHA 30% + BHA 2% Peeling Solution
