Alaffia Vanilla Mint Shea Body Wash
I always circle back to this product ALAFFIA - Shea Body Wash-Vanilla Mint because it leaves my skin soft and smells delicious. 🌺32 fl oz for 9.99 at Target 🌺 This body wash is for normal to very dry skin. 🌺Ingredients : neem leaf oil, Shea butter, Coconut Oil, Vanilla Extract and Spearmint Oil 🌺 Vegan 🌺Biodegradeable 🌺No Animal Testing ,No Parabens, No Phthalates, No SLS, No Mineral Oil, No Synthetic Fragrance, No Synthetic Dyes This is a great everyday body wash that leaves your skin smooth and moisturizer. The spearmint gives your skin a little tingle. The consistency is thin and runnny BUT a little goes a long way. Suds up just a little for this is more natural body wash. I love that this comes with a pump which is easy to use in shower and the price for how much product you get is a steal ! #cheriecreator

Step 2: Toners 💚
Product 1: ALAFFIA - Everyday Coconut, Face Toner, Purely Coconut, Normal to Dry Skin So, after I cleanse, I tone. Is it necessary? Nah... but I personally like this step because this is the first product that comes into contact with your skin right after you cleanse! This product I found at Nugget (and also Sprouts). I’ll be honest, I thought shopping in a grocery store with organic products would lead me to better skincare products. I was really just trying to find something gentle (and cheap) enough to try one day, and I found this! Neem is the top ingredient. I had never heard of this ingredient in skincare until I stumbled upon this. Some benefits of neem include vitamin E and fatty acids (good for hydration and fighting wrinkles/boosting collagen), anti-inflammatory & anti-bacterial (good for acne), and it is also known to balance out melanin secretion (which helps lighten hyperpigmentation). I’d like to say this helped with my acne and dark spots, but, like I mentioned in my cleanser post, I use a concoction of thangs on my face that all help with that... so it’s hard to pinpoint any single item, ya feel?? How I use it: cleanse, pat dry my face, then I spritz this and allow it to air dry. I use this every AM and most PMs. Product 2: The Ordinary - Glycolic Acid 7% Toning Solution ATTN: please read about AHAs before trying this product! This is a chemical exfoliant... the more harsh of the 3 I’ve learned about (lactic acid being more gentle and mandelic acid being even more gentle than both exfoliants). The reason why glycolic acid can be more harsh is due to the molecular size. Glycolic acid has a smaller molecular size which means it sinks deeper into the skin. Whilst the other 2 AHA’s have larger molecular sizes so that it doesn’t penetrate too deep into the skin making it a better option for those who have sensitive skin. These chemical exfoliants are used to help detach dead skin cells that may be sitting happily on your face and causing break outs. We love AHAs! It’s just a matter of finding which works for you. I’d recommend starting off with the mandelic acid OR pixi - Glow Tonic . I personally have never tried mandelic acid because I already knew my face could handle glycolic acid from using Pixi’s Glow Tonic. The difference between Pixi’s Glow Tonic and TO Glycolic Acid Toning Solution is 1. The amount of glycolic acid that’s in each solution and 2. Pixi’s Glow Tonic has more ingredients mixed in with the glycolic acid I’m assuming to make it more gentle. Fair warning, Pixi’s Glow Tonic has fragrance in it. How I use it: Okay sooooo, I use this when my skin asks me to. Sounds weird, but y’all know what I mean right? Lol. Liiike, if I feel a break out coming on or if I just feel like my skin needs a little extra treatment, I’ll use this in my PM routine after I cleanse. For me, the next morning, I’ll notice a difference. Anyone else use these products? 😊 Xoxo Xenia
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!!
Please help! Need advice on my skincare routine.
Hi! This is my first post and I wanted some advice on what I’m doing wrong. I’ve been using the GARNIER - SkinActive Micellar Cleansing Water All-in-1 Cleanser & Makeup Remover followed by the YOUTH TO THE PEOPLE - Superfood Antioxidant Cleanser then every other day I use the PAULA'S CHOICE - Skin Perfecting 2% BHA Liquid Exfoliator then I move on to serums. The serums i use are the The Ordinary - Alpha Arbutin 2% + HAand the The Ordinary - Niacinamide 10% + Zinc 1% both am and pm and the SAND&SKY - Australian Emu Apple Dreamy Glow Drops only in the am after the others. Then I moisturize with the ALAFFIA - Everyday Coconut Face Cream - Purely Coconut and finally in the day I use either the HAWAIIAN Tropic - Silk Hydration Air Soft Ultra-Light Sun Lotion SPF30 or the Neutrogena - Age Shield Face Sunblock Lotion SPF 110 Twice a week I also use the SAND&SKY - Major Multi Masking Kit or the SAND&SKY - Australian Pink Clay Flash Perfection Exfoliating Treatment But my skin doesn’t seem to improve at all and recently I’ve been having more breakouts 😭 Any advice is very appreciated also thank you for reading through all of this. ❤️

The Importance of Finding Your Skin ConfidenceCherie creator @Chardeny shares how she found confidence through her skincare journey.Feb. 4
My Mental Wellness Improved Through My Self AcceptanceWhen I was around 13 or 14 years old, I remember routinely taking one of my older sister’s black eyeliner pencils before school every morning. I’d arrive early so that I could slip away to the girl’s bathroom to apply a single black line to my eyelids. My parents didn’t allow me to wear any makeup at the time. Although this smudgy line on my eyelids didn’t make me look all that much different, I never felt comfortable at school without it. My teenage mind convinced myself that I needed some sort of cosmetic symbol in order to appropriately express my femininity. Up until that point in my life, society had told girls that looked like me - tall, Black, and with kinky hair - that we somehow weren’t as beautiful as the other girls. For far too long, I believed it too.Feb. 17
