Easy AM-PM Routine for you 🧴⭐️🔑
☀️ AM ☀️ 1️⃣ Cleanser : 🔑Start your hydrating skin-care routine off right with this any Face wash. It’s a non-foaming, gentle cleanser packed with ingredients like glycerin and orange oil. It’s a great option for anyone with dry and sensitive skin. 2️⃣Toner : 🔑 You should use your toner only and only after you have thoroughly cleansed your skin. Take 2-3 drops of a toner on a cotton pad and wipe it on your face. Make sure that the cotton pad does not absorb too much of the liquid and is able to transfer it to your skin. 3️⃣Antioxident Serum : 🔑 Using an antioxidant serum every morning can protect your skin from the environmental attack and slow down the process of aging. You should slather on a few drops of a good antioxidant serum right after cleaning your face and before applying moisturizer and sunscreen. 4️⃣ Eye Balm /Cream : 🔑 Use only a small amount. "When you yawn, it will push it up by the tears and when you rub your eyes it will press it in by your fingers. Make sure you leave a clear area around the eyes when applying cream and only apply to the bone area."THE inkey LIST - Caffeine Eye Cream 5️⃣ Acne treatment: 🔑 it’s up to you that you want to use acne treatment at morning or no but if you have bad acne problem you can use acne cream or gel for your cure. 6️⃣ Moisturizer: 🔑There is no such thing as skin that is too hydrated, and your sunscreen should not be the stand-in for moisturizer. These two products serve vastly different purposes and are not interchangeable, no matter how moisturizing your sunscreen claims to be. 7️⃣ sunscreen: 🔑 Daily sun protection is as important as drinking water and paying your parking tickets on time, so there are zero excuses for not doing it. Use after moisture your face . 8️⃣ Makeup : 🔑 if your like makeup by profession you can do makeup after your skincare routine but I just prefer myself without makeup .HUDA BEAUTY - The New Nude Eyeshadow Palette 🌙PM🌓 1️⃣: Makeup remover : Apply an oil-based makeup remover to dry skin and massage gently until the product melts into a liquid form.GARNIER - SkinActive Micellar Cleansing Water All-in-1 Cleanser & Waterproof Makeup Remover 2️⃣Cleanser : 🔑 No matter how dry your skin, gentle cleansing at night is essential. Makeup, sunscreen, bacteria, dead skin cells, dirt, and oil build up on your face during the day. They can work their way into your pores, causing inflammation. Wash gently without scrubbing to avoid irritating your skin. acne.org - Acne.org Cleanser YOUTH TO THE PEOPLE - Superfood Cleanser Refill 3️⃣:Toner 🔑 Place toner onto a cotton ball or the tips of your fingers and massage into your face, neck and décolletage in circular motion.

Once the dots are on, simply massage your night cream into your skin in an upward and outwards motion. Once all of the product has been massaged into your skin. FIRST AID BEAUTY - Ultra Repair Cream Intense Hydration 7️⃣ Lip mask : 🔑 Most lip masks recommend exfoliating your lips first, especially if your lips are a bit shaggy with dry skin. You can use a lip scrub, or you can simply rub a wet washcloth over them to help remove dead skin. Dry your lips. Before applying the lip mask, your lips need to be dry.LANEIGE - LANEIGE Lip Sleeping Mask

Up close and personal !
As I’m waiting on my new skincare products to arrive as it might take a couple days I just picked up three products from my local Sephora. I was looking for a good oil cleansing balm because I LIVE for the double cleansing method it saved my skin from all that yucky grime. Anyways I picked up the THE inkey LIST - Oat Cleansing Balm tonight and yes it’s my first day using it but I love how it’s so gentle and soft on my sensitive acne prone skin. I will keep you all updated on it though for the weeks to come. Next I have heard such great things about First Aid Beauty and how they’re known to make products that are specifically for people with sensitive skin so I picked up the FIRST AID BEAUTY - Ultra Repair BarriAIR Cream Safe for Sensitive Skin I AM ALREADY OBSESSED! It is so light on the skin, but at the same time feels like it’s really seeping into my skin and getting what it needs to make my skin barrier nice. I will keep you all updated on it as well. Last I love me a good eye cream, I tried finding the THE inkey LIST - Brighten-i Eye Creambut they were sold out.. so instead I got the THE inkey LIST - Caffeine Eye Creamand I like how it’s light weight as well, but of course we will see a difference hopefully over time. Once the rest of my products come in I will all show you and update you on my skin journey❤️

New routine for combination skin
To give you some background, I have combination skin. My cheeks are more on the normal side but I do get an oily T-zone as the day goes on. My goal with this new routine is to shrink my large pores, control oil production and keep hormonal acne at bay especially around the time of my cycle each month. I’ve been using this routine for several weeks now and I have to say my face is feeling fabulous. More even skin tone, smaller looking pores and no hormonal acne in sight! I love all of these products but the only one I am not sold on is PAULA'S CHOICE - The Unscrub I’m not a fan of the cleaning beads, it seems too gentle for an exfoliant. Here is my current routine: Morning: Cleanser: LA ROCHE-POSAY - Toleriane Hydrating Gentle Face Cleanser Toner: pixi - Collagen Tonic Serum: THE inkey LIST - Hyaluronic Acid Serum Treatment: THE inkey LIST - Niacinamide Oil Control Serum Eye serum: The Ordinary - Caffeine Solution 5% + EGCG Eye cream: RoC - Retinol Correxion Eye Cream *I’ve noticed that while the caffeine solution is wonderful, it can get sticky so I like to go over it with a tiny bit of eye cream especially if I am going to put concealer on Moisturizer: Aveeno - Calm + Restore Oat Gel Moisturizer Sunscreen: PAULA'S CHOICE - Youth-extending Daily Hydrating Fluid SPF 50 Night: First cleanser: FARMACY - Green Clean Makeup Meltaway Cleansing Balm Second cleanser: LA ROCHE-POSAY - Toleriane Hydrating Gentle Face Cleanser Exfoliating: PAULA'S CHOICE - Skin Perfecting 2% BHA Liquid Exfoliator (I currently use this 3-4 nights a week, working my way to using every night) Alternative: PAULA'S CHOICE - The Unscrub On nights were I don’t use the BHA, I use this scrub but like I said I’m not completely in love with it so I might change. The beads in it do not exfoliate or break down. It’s very weird but if you have any advice on how to use this better, I’m all ears! Serum: THE inkey LIST - Hyaluronic Acid Serum Treatment: THE inkey LIST - Niacinamide Oil Control Serum Eye serum: The Ordinary - Caffeine Solution 5% + EGCG Moisturizer: ANDALOU NATURALS - CannaCell Dreamy Night Cream This routine has been amazing for my skin! I hope this helps anyone who’s needing help with products for their combination skin routines! Thanks!

Stay Young Forever: Antioxidants 🍊
This is my favorite type of ingredient. If you’re looking for anti-aging, hyperpigmentation help, or even just prevention this is it! Antioxidants: You can find these in things around and even inside you. Vitamins such as A, C, and E have such a role in your life it’s crazy. Antioxidant main enemy is FREE RADICALS This free radicals are natural occurring and environment related stressors. They can be caused by the body’s metabolism or found in drugs, pesticides, cigarette smoke, and other pollutants. They over time damage cells and cause that portion of your body to not function properly. They are the most known for accelerating the aging process (mostly by diminishing collagen production). I love this chart because it lists the needs and skin types for each! My favorite is Vitamin C best to use during the daytime comes in many different forms helps the immune system (internal) Some of my faves 👇🏾 ORGANYS - ORGANYS Vitamin C Serum Seoul Ceuticals - 20% Vitamin C Hyaluronic Acid Serum Mad Hippie - Vitamin C Serum Resveratol : anti microbial produced by mostly fruits plants to protect from air pollution also cancer fighting expensive The Ordinary - Resveratrol 3% + Ferulic Acid 3% SKINCEUTICALS - RESVERATROL B E Nighttime Antioxidant Serum for face Vitamin E: needed by many organs helps quicken the skin healing process reduces stretch marks I like to get vitamin E in a oil form JĀSON - Vitamin E 5,000 I.U.

Must-Have Serums from The INKEY List
Skin Concerns: Dullness, Wrinkles, Hyperpigmentation, Dryness, Textured Skin, Oily Skin, Enlarged Pores The INKEY List is a skin care brand that has been recently popularized due to its amazing ingredients and affordability. The INKEY List invests in their products and less on its marketing campaigns, which allows for better ingredients to be put into their skin care line. There is a diverse range of products that you can choose from the brand, but it can get a little tricky figuring out what should you be using for your skin based on your concerns. Here are my top must-haves for people who are interested in trying out some products but don’t know what to choose. My choices were influenced by reading numerous reviews and self-research about each product. The hyaluronic acid, niacinamide, and retinol serums are my favorite serums from this line. They are also great for people who are beginning their skincare journey and are literally the gentlest of their kind. Hyaluronic Acid ($7.99) keeps your skin hydrated throughout the day. I like to apply this after cleansing my skin (while my face is damp) in the morning and evening. The hyaluronic acid serum has kept my face smooth during the winter months, which is when I’ll usually experience flaky skin and dry patches. Retinol ($9.99) is a popular ingredient (best suited for ages 25+) used to reduce the signs of aging such as wrinkles, dark spots, dullness, and textured skin. Niacinamide ($6.99) is great for oil control and keeping acne at bay. I use both the niacinamide and retinol serums together in the evening after cleansing. In conjunction, they work tremendously together and I have noticed a more even texture of my skin, diminished dark spots from on my cheek from acne scars, and reduced fine lines around eyes and smile lines. My pores looks cleaner too! I am on my second bottle of the retinol serum and I will definitely be repurchasing it again. For the results that I’ve seen from using these products and the price point, it’s definitely worth checking out The INKEY List. It’ll save your skin and save your bank account. #cheriepartner #sponsored #theINKEYList #niacinamide #retinol #hyaluronicacid #bestserums

THE Inkey 🖤
Have you tried The Inkey? These are the only 2 products I've tried so far. I really like them! 🖤 I decided to try out THE inkey LIST - Hyaluronic Acid Hydrating Serum • An ultimate hydrating must-have with two percent hyaluornic acid to hydrate the skin, leaving it smoother and plumper. • Skin Type: Normal, Dry, Combination, and Oily • Skincare Concerns: Dryness, Fine Lines and Wrinkles, and Dullness and Uneven Texture • Formulation:  Lightweight Liquid • Highlighted Ingredients: - Multi Molecular Hyaluronic Acid 2%: Helps to hydrate. - Matrixyl 3000™: A peptide that supports natural collagen production for an added plumping effect. •What Else You Need to Know:  This super ingredient is capable of holding 1,000 times its weight in water. Formulated with multiple molecular weight hyaluronic acid to hydrate different layers of the skin plus a Matrxyl 3000™ peptide, it reduces the appearance of fine lines while plumping skin. . 🖤💭 I am really enjoying this serum. It's seems to be working very well on my skin. I love that it absorbs quickly and is lightweight. It doesn't burn or cause any irritation or breakouts. It has definitely help with my skin over a period of time. I use this 3x a week. THE inkey LIST - Caffeine Eye Cream A hydrating and lightweight under-eye cream that helps to reduce the appearance of puffiness, under-eye bags, and fine lines. Skin Type: Normal, Dry, Combination, and Oily Skincare Concerns: Puffiness, Fine Lines and Wrinkles, and Dryness Formulation: Cream Highlighted Ingredients: - Caffeine: Reduces the look of puffiness. - Matrixyl 3000™: A peptide that helps to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.

The added Matrxyl 3000™ peptide can help reduce the appearance of fine lines, while the hydrating, lightweight texture provides a perfect canvas for makeup. 🖤💭 This is definitely one of my favorites. I really love this eye cream. It helps so much with puffiness and fine lines. Although there isn't a overnight miracle, this eye cream Definitely gets the job done. If you put this cream in the refrigerator, applying in the morning helps with waking up the eye area. It's hydrating, no drying issues and no irritation. I've heard so many great things about other products from this brand and cannot wait to try them out. Your thoughts?!?! 🖤🖤🖤

The BEST Affordable Skincare! (All $20 or under)
Krave - The Beet Shield $20 for 50 ml Only pros with this one! No white cast, not too greasy, not drying, sits well under makeup, completely unscented, and spf 50+++! LA ROCHE-POSAY - Effaclar Purifying Foaming Gel $14.99 for 13.52 oz This cleanses my skin thoroughly without being overly drying or stripping. Gentle enough to be used on eye makeup too! CeraVe - Moisturizing Cream For Normal To Dry Skin $18.99 for 16 oz Super hydrating but not too thick or pore clogging. Dries slightly matte so it works well under makeup too. Can be used on the whole body VERSED - WEEKEND GLOW $17.99 for 4 oz This has lactic acid, glycolic acid, azelaic acid, kojic acid and vitamin c to exfoliate and brighten. I use this several times a week in the morning and notice my skin is sooo much brighter since I began using it. Not irritating at all, despite all of the different active ingredients. Also love the pump bottle top THE inkey LIST - Oat Cleansing Balm $9.99 for 5 oz I love that this one comes in a tube instead of a jar! Much more sanitary and easier to get out. This removes all my makeup easily, even lipstick and mascara, and rinses off without leaving any kind of film behind. indeed LABORATORIES - In-Circadian Night Mask $24.99 for 1.7 oz Okay yes this one is more than $20, but it’s sold at Ulta and there are always great coupons that would make it under $20 when used. A night mask is just a thick moisturizer, but this one can also be layered over your regular moisturizer in colder months, or if you have extra dry skin. This mask is super hydrating and sinks into the skin super well so it won’t get on your pillow while you sleep #cheriepartner

I MADE A MISTAKE
Update I believe this is day three of trying all my new products out. I am so far still loving the THE inkey LIST - Oat Cleansing Balm it doesn’t irritate my skin what so ever. I am also loving the PAULA'S CHOICE - Skin Perfecting 2% BHA Liquid Exfoliator I won’t give it five stars yet just because I’ve only been testing it for a couple days. So far I do see a few new pimples, but no major breakouts. The reason is because I was testing out a cheap foundation , but it has way too many chemicals for my skin. Anyways my mistake was using the LA ROCHE-POSAY - Effaclar Duo (+) as a spot treatment , my mistake was putting the Paulas choice toner and then another serum with benzoyl peroxide. After that I added the effaclar duo and it burned my skin and now I have little patches from where I put it on my spots.. other than that my skin is looking a bit better each day. I am also red right now due to the benzoyl peroxide. It might be way too much for my face.

Hyaluronic Acid 101 x DermDoctor
Hyaluronic acid (HA) is a humectant that famously holds 1000 times its weight in water. It pulls in water from the environment and from the deeper layers of your skin. This ingredient seems to be ubiquitous in skincare products nowadays and it can be found in a lot of moisturizers. Benefits: -Immediately plumps the skin, softening fine lines and wrinkles -Hydrates the skin (specifically high-molecular-weight HA) -Assists in wound healing Dermatologist Tips: -Hyaluronic acid is your first step after cleansing -Must be applied to damp skin! -If you live in a dry climate, make sure to moisturize immediately after -Can be used once or twice a day -Safe to layer with most other skincare ingredients My Top Picks: VICHY - Minéral 89 Face Serum This contains a high-molecular-weight hyaluronic acid, which has moisturizing properties and sits on the surface of the skin without causing inflammation. It contains only 11 ingredients making it ideal for people with sensitive skin (like me). Also, Vichy’s proprietary volcanic water has actually been studied and proven to have skin protective and healing properties THE inkey LIST - Hyaluronic Acid Serum The price point here is unbeatable. Again, with a simple ingredient list, you’re unlikely to run into issues with allergy or irritation. This contains a multi-molecular-weight HA, which allows you reap additional benefits, in addition to hydration and plumping. This also has matrixyl 3000 peptide, which can stimulate collagen synthesis Neutrogena - Hydro Boost Hyaluronic Acid Serum Both high and low-molecular weight hyaluronic acid for added benefits. This also contains glycerin (another amazing humectant) and vitamin B5 (an amazing anti-oxidant) NATURIUM - Quadruple Hyaluronic Acid Serum 5% A great option fragrance-free, cruelty-free option from Naturium! This contains multi-molecular-weight hyaluronic acid that hydrates, plumps, and repairs the skin. #CheriePartner

MY MOST USED “NO FAIL” AM ROUTINE
The products you see have been products I’ve been using time and again for two years, around the time I got serious about my skincare life. These steps I never skip although I have added others or tried different brands. I will say again that I have used a more expensive version of Hyaluronic Acid and while it truly felt soft and comforting to my face, I don’t feel this is where my high dollars need to be spent. INDIE LEE - Brightening Cleanser best cleanser around! You can even leave it on longer and use it as a mask! This helps target dull, uneven textures, dark spots and pores. It’s a gel like texture. I am all about products that brighten my skin. INDIE LEE - CoQ-10 Toner next up is to tone and what better with one that will hydrate, soothe and protect your skin with the antioxidant coenzyme Q10 and Hyaluronic Acic! Plump that face up! I like to splash just a few drops of water on my face first then come in with Co-10. All we can do to help seal that hydration 💦 THE inkey LIST - Hyaluronic Acid Serum Then comes HA to really lock in that hydration. So may find it hard as people claim it can be “sticky” or “tacky” but I go right it after spraying my Co-Q10 and do a quick rub and then immediately tap it in. Then let it completely dry. If you don’t, you can have your following products pill, and believe me, that’s not fun! I believe everyone should have HA in their routine. There are so many variations out there at many different cost points but if you do your research and are comfortable using what works for you, go for it. Mine costs me $6.80 a month. I use it both am & pm. FARMACY - Very Cherry Bright 15% Clean Vitamin C Serum with Acerola Cherry depicted in the picture as the cute little 🍒 is VCB. I am currently out and my order is taking much longer than I’d like. But I have probably used almost 10 different brands of vitamin C (in comments) and I’ll still be goin back to Farmacy. I love the light scent and I had seen results pretty quickly, never any side effects. TATCHA - The Dewy Skin Cream I have a handful of creams I do adore and I could really probably spend less than dear ole Tatcha, but oh I do so love this cream. It just makes my face so happy. It’s a bit richer but my mother who has oily skin loves it! If I am hanging inside - tbh that’s 90% of my life - I do a light amount and then follow up about 10 mins later with sunscreen. Supergoop! - Unseen Sunscreen Broad Spectrum SPF 40 I do wear sunscreen indoors although I’m never near direct light. Life of a migrainer! 🤯but I figure one can’t aver be too careful. Plus I have ones open unfinished from the summer. But it is my stance that, yes, you should weat sunscreen indoors. It’s your best line of defense! Unseen Sunscreen makes me feel as if I have nothing on! My most used, never fail AM routine! ❤️ @cheriefam 🍒

Rate my Routine✨
Hi friends👋🏼 I’ve been using this wreck of a year to FINALLY start taking care of my skin! I did a TON of research over the summer and finally started a multi-step routine last month. I’d appreciate some seasoned skincare advice, since I’m still mostly a newbie 🥺 ☀️ Cleanser: LA ROCHE-POSAY - Effaclar Medicated Gel Cleanser for Acne Prone Skin (works well, no strong medicated scent, and it makes me feel clean right away!) Toner: DICKINSON'S - Original Witch Hazel Pore Perfecting Toner (not great, not bad, just an average toner) Serums: COSRX - BHA Blackhead Power Liquid (can already see a difference on my nose/chin after just a week!) DERMA•E - Vitamin C Concentrated Serum (LOVE this serum! I can already see a slight brightening of my skin after 1 week. I also love the smell🥰) The Ordinary - Niacinamide 10% + Zinc 1% (Only gave 3 stars because I can’t tell if the recent decrease in acne is due to starting this or my period ending?) Eye Cream: VERSED - VACATION EYES Brightening Eye Gel (pretty sure this isn’t doing anything... I just keep using it because I already have it...) Spot Treatment: Clean&Clear - Advantage Acne Spot Treatment (Similarly to TO, can’t tell yet if this is working or if my acne was more hormonal¿) Moisturizer: LA ROCHE-POSAY - Toleriane Double Repair Face Moisturizer CeraVe - CeraVe Moisturising Cream Sunscreen: Aveeno - Positively Radiant Daily Moisturizer SPF 30 🌚 Make-Up Remover: CeraVe - Makeup Removing Cleanser Cloths (I use these on my lazy evenings) 1st Cleanse: VERSED - DAY DISSOLVE Cleansing Balm (LOOOVE. Helps get everything loose for my 2nd cleanse) 2nd Cleanse: LA ROCHE-POSAY - Effaclar Medicated Gel Cleanser for Acne Prone Skin *Same Serums/Eye Creams/Spot Treatment as AM* Retinol: CeraVe - Resurfacing Retinol Serum (using every night and I don’t think it’s too harsh, but it’s also not doing much?) Moisturizer: CeraVe - Skin Renewing Night Cream (very rich & creamy!) Vaseline - Cocoa Butter Healing Jelly, Rich Moisturizing (on lips and extra dry areas for locked in moisture through the night) What’s the verdict? Are there products I should add/remove/change the order of? I REALLY want a better eye cream and have heard good things about THE inkey LIST - Brighten-i Eye Cream??I’m also thinking about replacing my current toner with THE inkey LIST - Glycolic Acid Liquid Toner 100ml. THANKS 🖤

AHAs, BHAs & what they do.
AHAs & BHAs When I was searching for products that are suitable for acne prone skin, I came across THE INKEY LIST. I was amazed by the selection of products they offer (a lil bit overwhelm perhaps) and the affordability as well. I desperately wanted something to help me with acne scars and hoping to control. I was directed to AHAs & BHAs. I was afraid these acid will be too strong for my skin especially AHA; therefore I chose Lactic acid, which is the mildest type of AHA and a gentle exfoliator, claims to remove dead cells from the skin's surface, helping it appear brighter and reducing the appearance of fine lines. As for BHA which promises to work beneath the surface of the skin to help unclog pores, target blackheads and reduce excess oil - it is exactly what I need. 💫THE INKEY LIST💫 ⭐️THE inkey LIST - Lactic Acid Serum ⭐️ With moisturising properties, and added Hyaluronic Acid, this watery textured gentle exfoliator is a mild treatment suitable for me. It is really mild, that being said, I sometimes still feel a slight sting when I apply this on. But it doesn't linger. Only to be used in night routine. ⭐️THE inkey LIST - Beta Hydroxy Acid (BHA) Blemish + Blackhead Serum ⭐️ This serum is a thicker consistency and contains 2% Salicylic Acid, which means it can penetrate deeper into the skin. It is also anti-inflammatory and anti-bacterial which is perfect for my skin. I alternate these two and skip if I am adding retinol each time. After using this two, I do have lesser breakouts. Even if there are, they are really small and I would spot treat with BHA if they are slightly bigger. However, I am really noticing my skin to be slightly more sensitive than usual. When that happens, I tend to skip either for a longer period of time. With acids, it is really really important to read up on your own and know the yes and nos to mixing and layering. Do not blindly follow as it is your skin. I find Inkey list product page to be highly informative and they are really responsive to questions being asked as well.

Paulas Choice 2% BHA’s more affordable Cousin?
BHA stands for beta hydroxy acid. AHAs are water-soluble acids made from sugary fruits. They help peel away the surface of your skin so that new, more evenly pigmented skin cells may generate and take their place. ... Unlike AHAs, BHAs can get deeper into the pores to remove dead skin cells and excess sebum. That was from a google search. So, should you be incorporating a BHA into your skincare routine? It depends largely on your concerns, people with acne, milia, blackheads and whiteheads will benefit the most from this type of exfoliation. That being said, THE inkey LIST - Beta Hydroxy Acid (BHA) Blemish + Blackhead Serum is a good place to start. It is affordable, easily accessible, as well as light enough to begin with. I have found my skin to break out less and the pores on my nose are not as visible (pores don’t close/shrink but you can work on not clogging them which makes them less visible) There are alternatives like the well recognized paulas choice 2% and salicylic acid by the ordinary. It’s entirely up to you but I do recommend you give it a try And when you do, make sure to apply it right after your toner in the day time, and after adding your ahas in the night time.

Which Retinoid should you use?
Retinoids are talked about as the best topical for most skin concerns. It does everything from reduce acne to reducing wrinkles! But it gets confusing with so many different forms of retinoids. They all have the same benefits, but some are just more powerful than others. The more potent it is, the more potential for irritation, so try starting with a less potent and less irritating retinoid like a Retinyl Ester and then switch to a more potent one like Retinol after a few months! HOW TO USE Retinoids can be used up to once every day, but this might be too strong for some and could cause some irritation. Try starting with just 1x per week, then gradually increase if you don't experience any signs of irritation. You definitely don't need to use more active ingredients on top of retinoids, but you can (doesn't mean you should). Just be cautious of using other active ingredients while also using retinoids, avoid using them in the same routine and try alternating them instead. They can be applied in a few different places in your skincare routine depending on your skin tolerance. Ideally, actives like retinoids are applied first after cleansing, however, this can also increase chances of irritation. If you experience irritation, you can try "buffering" (apply moisturizer first, then retinoid) or "sandwiching" (apply moisturizer first, then retinoid, then more moisturizer) and reduce the frequency. Below are some example products for each type to help you choose. REMEMBER, retinoids make you more sensitive to the sun and the sun undoes the benefits, so make sure to WEAR SUNSCREEN! Retinoic Acid Prescription Tretinoin (use as directed by the prescriber) Retinal Avène - RetrinAL ADVANCED Wrinkle Corrector Medik8 - Crystal Retinal Retinol The Ordinary - Retinol 0.2% in Squalane The Ordinary - Retinol 0.5% in Squalane The Ordinary - Retinol 1% in Squalane Medik8 - INTELLIGENT RETINOL PAULA'S CHOICE - 1% Retinol Booster Neutrogena - Rapid Wrinkle Repair Serum stratia - Night Shift Retinyl Ester The Ordinary - Granactive Retinoid 2% Emulsion The Ordinary - Granactive Retinoid 2% in Squalane #Dr. Sam’s - Flawless Nightly Serum[products]# THE inkey LIST - Retinol Serum(Contains both Retinol and the Ester) #CheriePartner

Spa night!
A spa night, for some, can be just as important as a visit to a therapist. As a mom of 3 boys I have made it a priority to have a spa night once a week, a well earned evening dedicated to taking care of me. Versed day dissolve This product is mildly scented just due to the formulation, it containers eucalyptus oil. This goes on really nice, using my finger tips i gently rub all over. You can see it melting your make up. Once’s it’s done it thing, add water then rinse, it doesn’t leave an oily residue. Glow recipe blueberry bounce gentle cleanser This is a great cleanser for spa for me. It gives me a deep cleanse but i do find my skin feels a tiny bit striped. I do enjoy the feel a good clean, especially on spa night! Versed doctors visit instant resurfacing mask I love this! It’s yellow jelly texture is so fun, not much of a smell I have noticed, I use a scoop and “Shmear” this on. Set a timer for 3 minutes. I did use my new facial steamer because it feels good, it’s a spa night, I want a luxury experience, even if it’s in my bathroom. Once my timer goes off, rinse thoroughly and dry your face with a clean towel. Inkey list kaolin clay mask This feels like lotion. In consistency as well as visually, it’s white and very luscious. I did half expect this to be thick but it’s a smooth light texture. I put a nice layer of this on and set a timer for 10 mins. After 10 mins I rinsed and moved on. Dr. Jart cryo rubber hyaluronic acid This was exciting for me! I’ve used the other rubber mask before but this was my first time using this. The instructions. Said to open the ampoule and “shmear” this all over the face and then place the 2 piece mask one and leave it for 30-40 mins. This seemed like a long time and it was. But the kelp rubber mask was so refreshing and and cooling, once I took the rubber mask off and tapped in the ampoule it did feel heavy at first but ultra moisturized. After a bit the heaviness did go away. This morning I woke up feeling so refreshed and soft. Considering the small amount you need of each of these products, they go a long way, they feel great and other then the rubber mask could be used in a weekly regimen. Taking time to yourself is so important, focusing on you for even a short time can really do wonders for your mind, body and soul. Take care of yourselves, you deserve it.

The Best of the Best I swear! I ran out of face masks and decided to try out one from my favorite brand:The Inkey List Kaolin Mask. I ❤️ all the products I’ve tried from them so far and this one did it’s job too. I so so so love products that work and don’t just have pretty dispensers. The kaolin mask is for improving skin impurities and unclogging pores...just what I need right now! I for some reason keep forgetting to get the caffeinated eye serum from this line, I know it will be a wonder serum. This brand just simply does not disappoint. They spend less time on designing packaging and more time make the actual product be worth all the little money.

I love this stuff! It may or may not be replacing my holy grail isntree hyaluronic acid toner 👀 (at least during these colder months) I’ve already repurchased this 4 times. 1 for my gf 1 for both of my sisters and 1 for me!! I see this product being a constant in my routine. Like all hyaluronic acid products, this is on the watery side. The texture is pretty thin, falling somewhere in between the isntree toner and hadalabo gokujyun lotion. It’s fast absorbing and does a really good job of hydrating the skin without being sticky. I’d definitely recommend this to everyone regardless of skin type. THE inkey LIST - Hyaluronic Acid Hydrating Serum

Let's talk about THE inkey LIST - Kaolin Clay Mask Price definitely affordable $9.99 for this tube. Texture, was reay easy to apply very soft and glides on your skin like butter; I mean, check out that clip 👀 taking it off was pretty easy since I use the Face Halo ✌🏻 What it did for me? So far I've used it twice over this week, probably going to give it another week to see how it really progresses my skin but overall.. no irritation or purges. No strong scent (which is fab!) I will update you guys next week to fill you in if it's worth a shot. But pending thoughts as of the moment, peace!✌🏻

THE inkey LIST - Caffeine Eye
THE inkey LIST - Caffeine Eye Cream I was really excited about this product since I have pretty dark circles and work night shift. This cream/serum is targeted for any skin type and for those who have dark under eyes, puffiness and fine lines. One interesting thing is when this was first released it was released as serum, now I see it’s remarketed as a cream. The product contains caffeine and matrixyl 300 which is a peptide for fine lines and wrinkles. It has a very thin lightweight consistency. I didn’t like this product at all. After the first use I got a bunch of red bumps all under my eyes. I stopped using right away. 😕 Tons of people love this product so definitely try it out if it interests you. The inkey list is very affordable and one of the newest popular brands at Sephora. It is also is clean at Sephora. 👍🏻
