HELP I’ve tried everything!
I’ve been trying to take extra care of my skin for the past 4 months but nothing seems to be working. Morning routine: CeraVe - Salicylic Acid Facial Cleanser The Ordinary - Niacinamide 10% + Zinc 1% CeraVe - Daily Moisturizing Lotion For Normal To Dry Skin CeraVe - Mineral Sunscreen Lotion SPF 30 for Face with Zinc Oxide Night routine: THE FACE SHOP - Rice Water Bright, Light Cleansing Oil CeraVe - Salicylic Acid Facial Cleanser The Ordinary - Niacinamide 10% + Zinc 1% CeraVe - SA Lotion For Rough & Bumpy Skin pura d'or - 100% Rosehip Seed Oil Every few nights, I alternate between Paula’s Choice 2% BHA exfoliant and the CeraVe Resurfacing Retinol in place of The Ordinary Niacinamide. In addition to this routine, I wash my pillow case every week, eat relatively healthy, and don’t wear any makeup. I also use The Ordinary - AHA 30% + BHA 2% Peeling Solutiononce a week for 10 minutes. I have acne-prone combination skin. My struggles are acne scars and bumps/texture on my cheeks. I’d especially like to know how to get rid of the bumps and what’s causing them. I also recently abstained from my actives for 2 weeks in hopes of my skin clearing up but that obviously didn’t work. I’ve been using my CeraVe products for almost 2 years. My skin only started breaking out more once I incorporated more products little by little. I don’t think this is considered purging because this has been going on for 3 months. I also don’t think this is maskne because I rarely leave my house. PLS HELP! I feel like I’ve done all I can. I can’t even see a dermatologist because I don’t have insurance. #help #helpmyskin
Holy grail of Salicylic acid/LHA washes
I’ll get straight to the point: $15 and I’ve still been on the same bottle for nearly two months. When a skin guru says to use a “dime size,” yes, it’s tempting to make its waaaaaay more than that. But imo, with this wash, less is truly better. This La Roche Posay cleanser is a 6.8oz bottle. If you’re researching this specific product, odds are you have tried or want to try CeraVe - Renewing SA Cleanser For Normal Skinbut can’t find it in stock anywhere (thanks Hyram lol). Sure, Cerave has more product for around $9. But notice that there’s no percentage of salicylic acid listed on it? Products containing 0.5% or greater of SA are required to list this on their packaging (in the U.S. at least). That combined with the fact that SA is over half way down in the ingredient list, we can assume the product is greatly diluted and not as effective of a SA compared to La Roche Posay. This is not something to use as a first step if you have make up on already. I prefer to use it as a second step in a double cleanser with my THE FACE SHOP - Rice Water Bright, Light Cleansing Oil. Being gel based, it does have a light foaming effect to it. I massage into the skin for about 1 minutes then rinse. Follow with your preferred moisturizer (nothing with SA so you don’t double medicate!) then SPF (if it’s daytime).

Brightening Face Mask Review ✨
Feels like this week really flew by. I had a busy day today after work, and a sheet mask is the perfect way to wind down. I want to share The Solution Brightening Face Mask by The Face Shop! The Face Shop usually has really great sales on sheet masks, so I love to stock up during those times. Recently, I picked up a few (actually 10) of these sheet masks to try out since my skin has those days where it’s dull and lifeless. I’ll start off with the ingredients! The highlight of this mask is the pearl powder infused in the serum to help give your skin a radiant glow! But that isn’t all. It is also formulated with the superstar ingredient niacinamide which has a number of benefits such as controlling oil production, lightening hyperpigmentation, protecting your skin against environmental stresses and more! For some added benefit, this mask is also formulated with sodium hyaluronate and glycerin to help hydrate your skin at the same time. These ingredients are in the top 10 on the list which means that the product has a high concentration of these ingredients, and with therefore do the most good for your skin. The downside to this mask is that it has denatured alcohol in the top 10 as well, which could irritate and dry out the skin. There is also fragrance at the very bottom of the ingredients list. My experience with masks from The Face Shop are always pleasant, though they never fit my face very well, and this was no exception. I left it on for 15 minutes, though you can leave it on for up to 20 minutes and as little as 10 minutes. There is always plenty of serum in the package so the mask is always thickly coated and never dry. Taking the time after removing the mask to pat in the remaining serum is one way that I practice #selfcare ! My skin had a nice pearlescent glow afterwards, and it did not feel dry or irritated. How do you practice self care?
The face shop the solution brightening sheet mask is a sheet mask for all skin types to hydrate skin and brighten. It targets dullness and pigmentation. It has a semi-clear gel texture and a white cotton mask. Overall, I really like this product. I bought it last year in korea because I wanted a new sheet mask and this was on sale. I like this because I saw results and it kept my skin bright and hydrated. It contains a lot of calming ingredients and left skin bright and glowy. I would recommend this to others because it is fairly cheap and effective. It will make your skin bright and hydrated after use, but doesn’t especially help with dark spots in particular. It mainly brightens the entire complexion. This is worth the price because it is fairly cheap and leaves my skin brightened every time I use it.

Morning Skin - Thoughts and current routine
Summary: Probably should have smiled in the photo, but overall, I’d say I’m pretty happy with my skin at the moment. I’m definitely a fan of Korean skincare products as a whole - they’re inexpensive and nice quality. I’ve listed them down below, but I won’t go into too much detail here since I’m planning on making individual posts about them. Things I’m happy about: - Acne My skin has never been extremely acne-prone, but I’ve definitely had my fair number of flare-ups, particularly around the temple area. I’m pretty sure I spent a solid 6 months with rotating bumps around the top right and left of my forehead. After moving states and changing up a couple things in my routine, it seems to be pretty settled now. - Texture Yoooooo my skin feels soft when I wake up now and it’s so nice. Things to work on: - Under eye bags Sigh, this comes heavily from genetics (my mom has the same exact under eye bags) but not too sure how to tackle this one. I’ve been looking at a green tea based cleanser or some serums. Right now, just concealer will have to do 😔 - Redness/pigmentation You can’t see it too clearly in the photo, but I have some redness/patchiness around my cheeks. It’s not very noticeable from afar but something I always notice looking in the mirror. Nighttime Routine (from left to right): innisfree - Hydrating Micellar Cleansing Water THE FACE SHOP - Rice Water Bright Foaming Cleanser MISSHA - Time Revolution Clear Toner Dr.G - Brightening Peeling Gel SK-II - Facial Treatment Oil Dr.G - RED-BLEMISH Clear Cream Any face masks Note: I only use the peeling gel and the face masks twice a month.
🍚 Empty! The Face Shop Rice Water Bright 🍚
THE FACE SHOP - Rice Water Bright Foaming Cleanser About me 🤗 and the product 🍚Skin type/skin tone I have combination skin. My t-zone is in the range of normal to oily skin and I have dry skin on my cheeks. My skin tone is warm ivory with a slight reddish discoloration in my cheeks 🧐I also have some freckles across my cheeks and my nose bridge. My skin type for the rest of my body is dry. 🍚Product function The product claims to wash away makeup using a deep-foaming effect, brighten skin ✨✨, and moisturize it as well 💦 🍚Texture/consistency The product is a thick and creamy paste before water and lathering it. After working the paste, it becomes a dense, smooth and soft whipped cream textured foam 😍 . 🍚Packaging The packaging is a squeeze tube with a simple close top mechanism for the top. Beauty story 📖 🍚Overall experience I heard lots of good things about this product so I wanted to try it out of curiosity 🤔. Before I bought this product I had a cream from them which was pretty good so I thought I’d be adventurous and give the cleanser a try. 🍚Verdict💔💔 I didn’t really like the product. After using the product, I felt like my skin was stripped dry of all its oils and moisture. I dont know if it’s because my face is already partially dry but after using the product my face did not feel moisturized as it claimed to have done😤. Also, i dont know if it’s because my face is sensitive, but after using the product it became irritated and tight 😥 🍚Recommend?👎🏻👎🏻 ❌I would not recommend this to people with combination, dry, or sensitive skin because it dries out the skin and irritates it. ✅I would recommend trying though if you have oily skin since it does a great job in washing everything off. It also does make the skin tone brighter as it has claimed. 🍚Worth it?💰 The product was around $8 for 150ml so not extremely expensive. It would be worth ✅it if you’re looking for a strong cleanser but not worth ❌it if you’re looking for a gentle cleanser that moisturizes the skin at the same time. I for sure will not be buying this again and I’m glad I finally emptied it!
Acne getting worse this year
Hi guys! I’m new to Cherie. I am 22 years old and have always had occasional pimples along with black heads on my nose but now my acne is out of control. On my chin line the pimples are constant and then I have large painful pimples which come up on my checks. Plus, textured forehead with occasional pimples. I began with trying the 10 step Korean skin care routine with the double cleanse which helped my redness and made my face look bright but did not help with the acne Then I tried black wolf face wash which seems to help but doesn’t stand a chance against my 12hr work days. Now: I’m trying smacne which seemed to have a lot of good reviews. SMACNE - Acne Treatment 30 Day Kit but have only used it for a few days For years I have used LANEIGE - Water Sleeping Mask which I love! It seems to improve my face over night Clean&Clear - Advantage Acne Spot Treatment CeraVe - Hydrating Sunscreen Face Lotion SPF 50- I hate the texture of this sunscreen but it was $15 so I’m trying to use it up I am on birth control and when talking to my doctor she said I should see a dermatologist because BC should only help acne not cause/ worsen it. I have reduced the dairy I consume, I drink green smoothies with fruits, veggies, flax seed, collagen, and apple cider vinegar most mornings. I also try to drink lots of water. This is kinda my last ditch effort before seeing a dermatologist. I legit am happy to be required to wear a mask at work because i am not confident with my skins current state. Thank you in advance for any advice! Right now I’m just trying to try one new thing at a time and give it plenty of weeks to see the effect.

After-shaving/waxing care for healthy skin
I have been using these cream/gel/oil for years as after-shaving or waxing care. They are so soothing and nourishing. In the cream category: ￼#L’occitane - Firming and smoothing milk concentrate[products]#[FiveStars] ￼L'OCCITANE - Shea Butter Ultra Rich Body Cream For gel-like moisturiser ￼THE FACE SHOP - Jeju Aloe Fresh Soothing Gel As for oil ￼I use coconut oil. It can be any brand, I believe, as long as the oil is pure cold pressed.
Hi! Just wanted to share my opinion on these products (by the way first photo isn’t mine and I use the rich cleansing oil, not the light one) The Face Shop Rice Water Rich Cleansing Oil -When I first started doing skincare one of the first products I got was a k-beauty cleansing oil, but I didn’t know it was also a makeup remover before since I never used makeup. (And I didn’t know that double-cleansing existed!) For some reason it still worked well for me and also helped brighten my skin. When I did start using makeup while still having this cleanser in my arsenal it did and worked wonders, it took off my mascara so easily and under-eye concealer. It does have a fragrance to it but it’s never bothered or irritated my skin, I have combination skin and this formula is like a normal oil cleanser when pumped out but when it comes into contact with water it becomes like a type of water-based milky look and texture. Since it also incorporates rice water it would help with the dryness in my cheeks and also hydrate my dehydrated skin if that makes sense haha Farmacy Green Clean I have been recently trying out the Farmacy Green Clean cleansing balm in my double cleansing routine and it works amazingly! A little bit goes a long way and it helps remove makeup and spf! I love how it just melts everything off without having to scrub harshly. Tbh the main reason I incorporated this into my skincare is because I saw Liah Yoo’s review on this and how she loves using it, I really recommend her channel and products (Krave Beauty ❤️❤️) I used to use the Drunk Elephant No.9 Cleanser but I’ll make a review on that another day! So far i’ve been loving green clean but I don’t really like it’s formulation in some aspects.

THE FACE SHOP-Apeach Oil Control Water Blotting Powder Kakao Friends Limited Edition
Quick review of The Face Shop’s Rice Water Bright Light Cleansing Oil (wew, a mouthful) and the Althea Petal Velvet Sunaway! Let’s start with the oil cleanser, as the name implies this has a very light texture compared to others that I’ve tried. A bit too scented for my liking but it doesn’t linger that much once you massage it onto your face. Leaves a light residue which can be easily washed off once you move on to your second cleanser! The sunscreen on the other hand has been one of my go-to’s lately—extremely lightweight and no white cast. Has Damask rose petals that helps your skin stay fresh and hydrated throughout the day. Definitely a must-try!
Help with wrinkles at 16?
I’m 16 and feel like I have more wrinkles than usual for my age. Are there any cheap, antiaging creams that are good and under $10? Currently my skincare routine is: Morning: 1. Gentle slaps of Dr. Belmeur Toner around whole face (THE FACE SHOP - Daily Repair, Facial Toner ), 2. Apply pea-size amt. of Aveeno Daily Moisturizer to face and neck. (Aveeno - Daily Moisturizing Lotion ) My night routine is the same.
