newbie here, send help lol
hello everyone I'm new to cherie and this is my first post so please forgive me I don't know what I'm doing haha anyways! I'm 22 years old and I'm inexperienced when it comes to skin care and beauty products, all my life I've had ance prone skin, acne scars, black heads and whiteheads along with enlarged pores and dark spots. I've been somewhat self conscious about my skin but until recently I've felt more self conscious about it and it just makes me feel less attractive about it which I know it's a silly thing to feel, but anyways. my skin tends to be very dry after I wash it yet it becomes oily? after a couple of hours. I'm currently using the CeraVe - Foaming Facial Cleanser For Normal To Oily Skin and GARNIER - SkinActive Moisture Rescue Refreshing Gel-Cream as a moisturizer I also use to use DICKINSON'S - Original Witch Hazel Pore Perfecting Toner for couple years until recently I learned that Wich hazle just makes your skin worse and it just causes more oilyness. but during quarantine I recently noticed my skin started to become worse than it was before. Im currently only washing and moisturizing my face I currently haven't been able to buy myself anything else because I've had to cut back on a few things in order to save money for a bit, but I just ran out of moisturizer so I figured why not treat myself to something new? as mentioned before I don't have enough experience with skin care or beauty products to know what is beneficial for my skin needs. and while I have been watching and following a couple skin fluencers on social media, all these facts and products that they say tend to make head spin because one person might say something negative about a product while the other might rave about it. and it's all just so confusing and it just causes me to feel overwhelmed and I just end up giving up in the end. so if anyone can provide any advice or skin care recommendations that are budget friendly without any harmful ingredients, I would greatly appreciate it and it would mean a lot. thanks for reading 🐰🌙
HELP! I need a new skincare routine!
(Excuse my eyebrows I need to get them threaded) LOL So I’ve always struggled with acne, and I’m 18 and it’s still going on. I started birth control to help with my periods and acne about a little over 2 years ago now, and it has dramatically decreased my acne and helped so much with my flow and cramps. I just want to feel more confident because I rarely wear any makeup (foundation) on my face, and when I do I just want it to look smooth and not bumpy. I would really appreciate if anyone could recommend any products they use or have used. My skin is mainly oily, but it can be combination sometimes and sensitive when it wants to. Also, I don’t want to spend a lot of money on products. And what are y’all’s opinions/reviews on The Ordinary? Please help me! 🙏🏼 ￼￼My morning routine consists of: -Clean&Clear - Morning Burst Oil-Free Gentle Daily Face Wash -DICKINSON'S - Original Witch Hazel Pore Perfecting Toner -FORMULA 10.0.6 - Seriously Shine Free Mattifying Oil Free Moisturizer ￼￼My nighttime routine consists of: -GARNIER - SkinActive Micellar Cleansing Water All-in-1 Mattifying -CeraVe - Foaming Facial Cleanser For Normal To Oily Skin -Clean&Clear - Share NIGHT RELAXIN Deep Cleaning Face Wash -DICKINSON'S - Original Witch Hazel Pore Perfecting Toner -Beauty 360° - Vitamin E Moisturizing Oil -GARNIER - SkinActive Soothing Facial Mist with Rose Water -FORMULA 10.0.6 - Seriously Shine Free Mattifying Oil Free Moisturizer (I do use masks sometimes just like everybody else after I double cleanse at nighttime).

Acwells Licorice pH Balancing Cleansing Toner
I recently purchased acwell - Licorice pH Balancing Cleansing Toner for sensitive skin although I have combination skin. It came down to three reasons: ￼￼It was all over the internet and I hadn’t used a toner since my teens. In the 80’s they were known to be abrasive but touted as a must have for skincare. Well not my routine 😂😂😂 ￼￼Licorice helps regenerate elastin and collagen for skin. It contains amino acids, which are known to help moisturise and hydrate skin. Although it lightens skin the active compound is Glabridin. Glabridin’s a natural, gentle skin lightening agent, that acts to block the action of the skin-darkening enzyme, tyrosinase. ￼￼￼￼￼Blocks not remove, so a winner for me because I have olive skin. 👏🏽👏🏽👏🏽👏🏽👏🏽👏🏽 This is not licorice, like the candy. Instead, it’s from Licorice Root. ￼￼acwell - Licorice pH Balancing Cleansing Toner is packed with moisturising ingredients and uses Rheum Palmatum Root Extract (Rhubarb), Psidium Guajava Leaf Extract (Guava), and Camellia Sinensis Leaf Extract for their astringent properties. My thoughts 💭 🧚♀️ I tend to use toner sporadically because I use DICKINSON'S - Witch Hazel Liquid which can be drying. I’ve used acwell - Licorice pH Balancing Cleansing Toner daily since it arrived and no irritation. 🙌🏽 🧚♀️ It has a herbal scent and light watery base when pouring but it has a sticky/tacky texture when applying. Not unpleasant ☺️ 🧚♀️It doesn’t irritate #noalcohol 🙌🏽🙌🏽🙌🏽🙌🏽 🧚♀️ I only use it on blemishes not my entire face and my blemishes have cleared up. I have no issues with acne 🧏🏽♀️ but I like to use products for acne prone skin. I like to think prevention before cure 🤷🏽♀️ I’m sold on acwell - Licorice pH Balancing Cleansing Toner 👏🏽👏🏽👏🏽👏🏽👏🏽 Have a great weekend! Jade 😃
My Morning Skincare Routine for Combo Skin
Hi 👋 I started my Journey about 6 weeks ago and I’m so glad I did because I only used Olay. I did a review on the Olay range but in a nutshell I used: OLAY - Olay Regenerist Advanced Anti-Ageing Miracle Boost Youth boosts the renewal of surface cells and provides twice the anti-ageing benefits for skin. It has Niacinamide to boost surface cell metabolism and renewal, reducing wrinkles. Amino Peptides help repair skin, reduce wrinkles and firm skin. Lys’lastine, a Dill extract enhances skin elasticity. OliveM, contains an array of anti-ageing ingredients and helps protect skin from oxidative damage. OLAY - Regenerist Micro Sculpting Cream has highly concentrated Amino-peptide complex and actives that help renew skin’s surface cells. Olive-oil extract that aids faster ingredient penetration into the skin. Hydra-firming Complex helps retain skin’s youthful look. OLAY - Eyes Eye Lifting Serum Pro-Retinol, helps increase the rate of surface cell turnover to smooth the look of wrinkles. With hydrating properties, it Is meant to help fortify skin’s natural moisture barrier allowing your skin to better retain moisture. I cleansed with sukin - Gel Cleanser Sensitive a gel for combination, oily skin types who have sensitive skin, it provides a gentle, non-drying cleanse designed to help remove impurities and excess oils. A blend of Green Tea, Cucumber, and Avocado Oil to gently clean, refresh and purify skin. Now my Morning Routine 😁 Cleansing with L'ORÉAL - Pure Clay Cleanser Detox & Brighten it’s great for pores and my skin looks brighter. I haven’t found it harsh or drying. DICKINSON'S - Witch Hazel Liquid I use three times a week because it has great antioxidants and antibacterial properties. It’s also great for tightening skin. For me, it’s a little drying which is why I alternate between toners. All natural witch hazel and contains Natural Grain Alcohol 14%, different from synthetic chemical alcohols, it aids in retaining moisture. My Go To day Serum is TruSkin - Vitamin C Serum Designed to target the most common signs of aging including brightness, firmness, fine lines, wrinkles, dark spots and sun spots. The plant-based, cruelty-free formula also contains active botanicals, aloe vera and organic jojoba oil for nourishing and soothing skin. My Moisturiser and Eye Cream is currently Auquest 5 second Wrinkle Remover Cream. I did a review and was a little awed by this product. It’s now my new day cream. 😄 Lastly sunscreen, I use Banana Boat 🚤 SPF 50 because I live in Australia and don’t wear make up on the daily. It’s a special occasion thing for me. 😉 Our sun 🌞 is hot down here. Its currently Spring and getting 🥵 if you can recommend a SPF 50 drop me a comment below👇🏽 Jade 😃

About 3 months ago I started to get really bad acne. So I tried to cut a lot of my routine and go with products that would help me with my hormonal acne. my doctor also prescribed me #Perrigo - Clindamycin Phosphate and Benzoyl Peroxide Gel 1.2%/5%[products]# . I just started this routine so I will have updates every month. Morning Routine: LA ROCHE-POSAY - Toleriane Purifying Foaming Cleanser for my 2nd cleanser I switch it out for CeraVe - Foaming Facial Cleanser For Normal To Oily Skin ,ACNE FREE - Oil Free Acne Cleanser ,DHC - Deep Cleansing Oil then DICKINSON'S - Dickinson's Enhanced Witch Hazel Alcohol Free Hydrating Toner The Ordinary - Hyaluronic Acid 2% + B5 HERITAGE STORE - Rosewater & Glycerin Atomizer DIFFERIN - Oil Absorbing Moisturizer SPF 30 MyChelle dermaceuticals - Sun Shield Stick SPF 50 Night Routine: LA ROCHE-POSAY - Toleriane Purifying Foaming Cleanser CeraVe - Foaming Facial Cleanser For Normal To Oily Skin HERITAGE STORE - Rosewater & Glycerin Atomizer The Ordinary - Hyaluronic Acid 2% + B5 #Perrigo - Clindamycin Phosphate and Benzoyl Peroxide Gel 1.2%/5%[products]# I switch out with DIFFERIN - DIFFERIN Acne Treatment Gel The Ordinary - 100% Organic Cold Pressed Rose Hip Seed Oil when I spot treat I useNATURE'S BOUNTY - Vitamin E-Oil, 30,000 IU The Ordinary - Vitamin C Suspension 23% + HA Spheres 2%
Drugstore Must Have!
My sister-in-law recommend this product to me after I was going through some skin struggles, and I couldn’t be happier with making the switch from my original strong skin stripping toner to the mild and hydrating DICKINSON'S - Dickinson's Enhanced Witch Hazel Alcohol Free Hydrating Toner This is a milder toner, so perfect for my dry/dry combination skin, but still gets the job done! It leaves my skin feeling clean, smooth and fresh without it feeling overly dry or tight. I use this before applying moisturiser both morning and night and sometimes throughout the day if I’m not wearing makeup and need a quick freshen up. Love that it’s a drugstore find, inexpensive and readily available. This has become a must have in my skin routine!
5•26•20 ✨This mornings skin routine✨ 1. Cleanse: MARIO BADESCU - Glycolic Foaming Cleanser is a cleanser for ALL skin types & you typically only need to use 2-3x a week depending on your skin type. I have a combination skin type which may cause me to use 1-2x a week. No more than that! This leaves my face feeling super clean! • 2. Tone: DICKINSON'S - Energizing Astringentworks good for my skin; it’s not for everyone though. I find that some toners leave my skin feeling tight and dry but this one does not. • 3. Scrub: OLE HENRIKSEN - Transforming Walnut ScrubI only use a facial scrub once a week as it tends to dry out my skin too much and leaves it feeling irritable or causes a burning sensation; so I only use it once throughout the week & that does the trick! • 4. Serum:SEPHORA COLLECTION - Ultra Glow Serum: Glow + Strengthen Vitamin C Serum I LOVE LOVE LOVE this serum!!!! It gives my skin a glow like never before!! I will always use this product right before applying my moisturizer without a doubt. I would definitely recommend this product. • 5. Moisturize:Kiehl's - Ultra Facial Cream Lastly I applied my favorite moisturizer thus far! This stuff does not get rid of the glow my serum gives me after applying or give me a dull look as some moisturizer cream does. AMAZING stuff! Definitely purchase.
The first pictures are what my skin looks like after using the NOXZEMA - Ultimate Clear Daily Deep Pore Cleanser I’ve been using this product for a while now but haven’t seen a difference in my pores afterwards, so I decided to try something new. The Ordinary - AHA 30% + BHA 2% Peeling Solution At the moment my skin care routine includes NOXZEMA - Ultimate Clear Daily Deep Pore Cleanser AZTEC SECRET - Indian Healing Clay DICKINSON'S - Original Witch Hazel Pore Perfecting Toner CeraVe - Daily Moisturizing Lotion For Normal To Dry Skin I use the AZTEC SECRET - Indian Healing Clay only once a week. I’m hoping that The Ordinary - AHA 30% + BHA 2% Peeling Solutionwill help clear my skin up because the acne and scars are not looking to well and get really irritated. Fingers crossed 🤞🏾 🤗 I’ll be posting weekly to see if there’s any difference with my skin☺️.
The Ordinary-AHA 30% + BHA 2% Peeling Solution

I can’t believe how quickly the results of clearing up my face had come. I’m beyond excited and I can’t wait to do an in depth review! If you want to do a little research yourself, I’ll tag what I’m using below.

PALMER'S- Cocoa Butter Formula, Moisture Rich Night Cream
T. N. Dickinson’s Witch Hazel
I love this witch hazel brand sooo very much. It doesn’t feel like it strips my skin of its natural oil. But definitely gives me a clean feeling after cleansing. Would definitely recommend it to anyone looking for a type of toner that doesn’t strip but still gives a clean feeling. For the price of $4, it does its job.
DICKINSON'S-Witch Hazel Liquid
I’m in love with first aid beauty acne charcoal cleanser FIRST AID BEAUTY - Skin Rescue Anti-Breakout Charcoal Cleanser I like witch hazel is really tones my skin but still clearing it DICKINSON'S - Dickinson's Enhanced Witch Hazel Alcohol Free Hydrating Toner I also use saint Ives exfoliating scrub ST.
