If you're new to CBD, it can feel overwhelming trying to decide which products to try (or if you should try the trend at all), so we're here to give you the low-down on CBD in skincare, and which products we love.*All products featured below are sourced from the posts of Cherie's users.

CBD is known as an anti-anxiety ingredient and its medicinal properties have been deemed safe by the World Health Organization. CBD has been long used to help patients with inflammation issues, like eczema, psoriasis, and acne, as well as helping improve sleep and reduce muscular pain. Since the legalization, CBD as a super ingredient in skincare has risen like nothing we've seen before! So, how do you know if CBD is the right ingredient for you? When it comes to skincare, if you need any anti-inflammatory remedies like those mentioned above, CBD could be a great ingredient to add to your skincare regimen. If you don't have any pressing skin concerns but want to experience more relaxing and calming moments, then CBD can help you achieve that. Bottom line? If you want to try it, go for it! Here's what we recommend:

LORD JONESHigh CBD Formula Body Lotion
"I gave my mom the lotion to test on hers & I took the oil. I rub the oil on the back of my neck, down the shoulders & rub it in. I have a high tolerance for most pain medications & I didn’t expect this to knock a dent in my threshold. I figured it wouldn’t work for me. To my surprise though it did. It worked so well I took it all the way down my spine & lower back. Not only does it work but it worked fast. Within a minute or two! My mom says the same thing with the lotion."
HERBIVOREEmerald Deep Moisture Glow Oil
"The oil is lightweight and absorbed into my skin instantly, I am prone to dryness and found this fine to use AM and PM. It plays well with other products in my skincare routine and never pilled or left my skin looking or feeling greasy. Did I mention the glow? We’re talking J-lo glow here, every time I apply this people actually comment on how healthy my skin looks and it honestly feels so soft!"

Preserving My Curls Overnight
This is how I preserve most of my hairstyles overnight! I hear many people complain about how their bonnet or scarf is always falling off their head and ending up on the floor once they wake up, I was having the same issue! That is when I decided to create a wrap that would stay on throughout the night while protecting your curls. I hand make them myself and sale on Etsy (link in my bio) if you are interested! 😊
DON’T try these at home!
With so many self- proclaimed beauty gurus in the world today, it’s very easy to get sucked into the DIY trend. Most experts and skincare specialists will tell you these homemade concoctions are not as good as they are made to be. Here are 5 ingredients you should not put on your face and why. 1. Essential Oils- The fragrant portion of plants is what makes essential oils. Modern science has revealed how fragrant oils cause problems for the skin. In the long run components in essential oils can significantly irritate and damage the skin. 2. Lemon Juice 🍋- Lemons are extremely acidic, which will irritate your skin. You can experience excessive redness, dryness, and skin peeling. Using lemons on your skin can cause more damage then benefit to your skin. 3. Coconut Oil- This ingredient causes a lot of debate amongst my followers, but fact is a fact, coconut oil is highly comedogenic. This means that the oil clogs pores on your face. When you apply coconut oil to your face it lays on the surface and is not able to be absorbed into the skin due to its large molecules. It can cause breakouts, blackheads, and whiteheads. 4. Witch Hazel- Here is another debate stirring ingredient. A lot of my patients and followers swear by witch hazel because of its immediate results on absorbing oil on the skin. What they fail to understand that it is not only absorbing the excess oils, but it is also stripping your skin of its natural oils. This can be very damaging to your skin and it’s natural protecting barrier, causing unnatural sensitized and dry skin. 5. Toothpaste- Such a popular trend and so harmful to your skin. Toothpaste contains high levels of baking soda which will mess with your skin’s ph level. This can lead to redness and burning of the skin. Toothpaste is a horrible option for your blemishes and instead I would recommend THE inkey LIST - Succinic Acid Acne Treatment As tempting as it is to try natural remedies at home, do your skin a favor and resort to stabilized and researched ingredients and products.
My well-loved drugstore makeup essentials
These are the drugstore makeup picks I ACTUALLY use! Don’t get me wrong, I love a good Tarte Shapetape Concealer. Even the latest launches from Rare Beauty have me swooning. But drugstore makeup holds a special place in my heart. Walking through the aisles of Target or CVS gets me giddy. Quite honestly, I count those trips as my therapy sessions. Plus, these are the places were I started getting essentials to experiment with when I was younger! My favorite brands to score from are no doubt Pixi, NYX, Essence Cosmetics, Sonia Kashuk, Maybelline and Covergirl. They’re just my go-to’s! They’re the brands constantly putting out dupes for cult favorites. Everything in this picture, I use on a daily basis. I’ve been going through Maybelline Lifter Glosses like they’re going out of style. I actually was responsible for my local Target running out of stock once...oops. Another new essential that’s crawled its way into my everyday routine is the Covergirl Cooling Glow Stick. It’s part of their new Clean Fresh line and I use it on my WHOLE face. Top tip: try it under your eyes over your concealer 👀 I’m still in search for the perfect drugstore CC cream, does anyone have any good recommendations?
