It freshens up greasy roots and oily locks and acts as a band-aid solution for when you just don’t have time to wash your hair using your full wet- shampoo routine. Many people swear by dry shampoo formulas: using it to refresh after a long day at work, extend the life of a particular hairstyle, or clean up your roots for an outing.How do dry shampoos work? Dry shampoos use alcohol or starch-based active ingredients to soak up the sebum oil produced at your scalp. Hair loves this oily lubricant, and it’s a perfectly healthy and natural occurrence. However, too much lubricant and too much time between washing can leave your roots and hair, feeling a little flat and limp. Enter dry shampoo. Dry shampoo removes and soaks up these oils, making your hair look and feel fresher. Be warned, however, that dry shampoo is a band aid solution. It’s great for hiding oil, but a wet wash is the best way to clean your scalp of excessive sebum. How to use dry shampoo?Dry shampoo is quick and easy to use. Simply separate your hair into sections and spray your roots. After a moment, brush or work through the shampoo with your fingers. It is essential to start small- too much product can leave your hair feeling stiff! Cherie’s Best Dry Shampoo Picks:Living Proof Perfect Hair Day Dry ShampooHair Type: Oily, Wavy, Curly, Coily, Fine

This excellent dry shampoo for oily hair is also color-safe and great for prolonging a hairstyle or coloring with a lot of texture. Batiste Original Clean Dry ShampooHair Type: Thick, Oily, Wavy, Curly Thick hair needs a hard-working dry shampoo to tackle those roots.

This product is vegan, free of sulfates, and uses ultra-fine powders to texturize and clean the hair follicles. This dry shampoo is perfect for limp or fine hair, which needs to be livened up and prepped for styling. DevaCurl Do Poo Quick Cleanser Hair Types: Curly, Thick, Coily, Frizzy
DevaCurlNo-Poo Quick CleanserIf you have been blessed with curly, coily hair, then you know that the key to beautifully smooth curls is moisture.

This entire brand builds itself on expert knowledge on curly hair and how to protect those coils. The Do Poo Quick Cleanser is a botanically infused conditioning spray that cleans without drying out the scalp and hair follicles. It adds luster with no mattifying effects and invigorates curls with new life and shine. Bumble and Bumble Brownish Hair PowderHair Types: Brunettes, Straight, Wavy
Bumble and bumble.Brownish Hair PowderDry shampoos tend to use powders, and these can be light or white. That’s terrible news for brunettes, as this powder shows up stark against dark locks and can leave a user with dusty colored roots. Bumble and Bumble solve this problem by boosting texture without any white residue. Instead, it delivers a matte finish and refreshes the all-over color of the hair. This product is fabulous for adding volume, extending the life span of hairstyles, and enhancing naturally brown hues. Hask Argan Dry ShampooHair Types: AllThe end goal of dry shampoos is to freshen you up and save you time. Hask Argan Dry Shampoo formula delivers on both these promises. Using an argan-infused formula, the dry shampoo features ultra-fine starch, which soaks up oil, nastiness, and sweat. The product uses no parabens or nasty chemicals and restores an even texture to all types of hair. Hask is anti-build up as well, so you won’t have to worry about residue build up dragging down and damaging your roots! Plus, it smells fresh and sweet. Kristin Ess Style Reviving Dry ShampooHair Types: Fine, Limp, Wavy, Short
KRISTIN ESSThe Style Reviving Dry ShampooSay goodbye to chalky streaks, residue, and oily build-up. Kristin Ess Style Reviving Dry Shampoo soaks up excess sweat, grime, and oil to leave your hair feeling (and looking) refresh and revitalized. It’s light, paraben-free, and has a subtle sweet smell to bring your locks to life! We love this dry shampoo for how fresh this spray leaves your hair and provides high lift and volume. Dry Shampoos are perfect as a clean touch-me-up and a fantastic time saver for the busy, working girl. Stick them in your purse to quickly revitalize your hair, or to prolong the life span of a hairstyle. Dry shampoos banish any odor, suck up excess oil, and clean the scalp for light and voluminous lift. Many stylists use dry shampoos to add texture and grip to hair- this is especially useful for those looking to curl their locks. Try spritzing your hair after a blow out for an extra lift, or working a dry shampoo through your roots to help any braids, curls, or waves grip and stay. Whether you have curls, coils, or waves, dry shampoo is the perfect two-day way to freshen up your hair.
ABH Dipbrow Dupe!
For the longest time I’ve always stuck with my Anastasia Beverly Hills dipbrow pomade!! And while the product itself is amazing, I randomly picked out this pomade by elf out of curiosity and fell in love!!! This is seriously a game changer if you use pomade for your everyday brows and want to save some extra cash!! The e.l.f. - Lock on Liner and Brow Cream is for One, easy to use Secondly dries down so nice, (I don’t worry if I accidentally wiped off a piece of my brow Lol). And best of all it’s literally $2!! I use the shade “Medium Brown” and find this blends really nice with black hair! Unfortunately my only con is that the product doesn’t have that many shades especially compared to Anastasia. I provided a photo of how I normally do my brows with this product for anyone wondering! Overall this is a great affordable pomade alternative! What products do you use for your brows?
Retinol use for beginners from an Esthetician!
If you’re ever wondering how to start using retinol, this is for you! I want to start off by saying that if you’re interested in using retinol you must wear sunscreen daily. If you know you’re never going to wear it PLEASE do not use retinol. With that being said, let’s start off by explaining what retinol is and what it does for you! Retinol is Vitamin A! There are many types of retinol, like retinoids, retinol esters, etc. These are all derivatives of Vitamin A, and are more gentle and less potent versions of pure retinol. Retinol helps speed up our cell turn over rate in our skin. What that means, is that it will help you shed your dead skin cells faster to reveal new skin that’s brighter, smoother and healthier! As we get older, our “cell turnover rate” (CTR) slows down. So we use products like retinol to keep speeding it up so we can stay younger longer! Most people know retinol for treating fine lines and wrinkles, but it’s actually incredible for treating acne and acne scars! This is what I personally use it for. Retinol is strong and acts as an exfoliant so you must be careful with what products you’re using along with it in your regimen. Don’t layer or mix Vit C and retinol as they don’t like each other! Retinol should ONLY be applied at nighttime never in the morning. It makes you photosensitive which is a term to describe sensitivity to the sun. Most people experience some purging in acne, peeling/dryness, redness/irritation, and burning sensations when using a high dose of retinol without buffering it properly. If you use my buffering method properly you will not experience that at all! Now that you understand what you’re putting on your skin, I will explain how to use it! You shouldn’t start retinol by just applying it straight onto your skin without ever using it before. Your skin has to adjust to this new product and should be incorporated gently and slowly. It takes a month for your skin to adjust. You want to buffer your retinol with a gentle moisturizer. Nothing with actives like exfoliants (AHAs or BHAs)! Retinol goes after serums and before moisturizer in your routine! Week 1: use your retinol maximum 2x weekly. Start with one pea size amount of retinol and buffer it with 3 parts of moisturizer! Mix & apply to your skin! Week 2: use your retinol maximum 3x weekly. You’re going to do equal parts retinol and moisturizer. 2 parts retinol and 2 parts moisturizer. Mix & apply to your skin! Week 3: use your retinol maximum 3x weekly. Use 3 parts retinol (equal to a pea size) and 1 part moisturizer. Mix & apply to your skin! Week 4: use your retinol maximum 4x weekly. Apply a pea size amount of retinol directly onto your skin! Then apply your moisturizer directly on top of the retinol! If your skin cant handle retinol alone then stick to the buffering method forever! It will be just as effective as applying it alone! This method will minimize purging and keep your barrier healthy! Hope this helped! ❤️COSRX - Propolis Light Cream

THIS DERMATOLOGISTS FAVORITE NEW CLEANSER
Cleansers are an essential step in everyone’s skincare routine, but it can be difficult to find the right one for your skin. The new Aveeno Calm + Restore nourishing oat cleanser has been my new go-to daily cleanser and I love it. ❤️🙌 Aveeno has always been a brand to create formulations that target dry and sensitive skin and this cleanser is no different. This cleanser is great for people all skin types but would likely benefit dry or combination skin most. The incorporated oat complex helps restore build the skin’s moisture barrier and soothe itchy skin. There is no stripping effect with this cleanser, which is something too always look for with your cleanser. Other pros about this product are its fragrance free (limiting any irritant reactions) as well as great pricing. On amazon, you can find a bottle for under $10.‼️‼️ TRUTH: If you are trying to fight acne or blackheads I recommend against this cleanser and try finding something with salicylic acid. Have you tried the new Aveeno cleanser? Let me know your thoughts in the comments! ⤵️
Full Face Using Products from Nov Boxy Premium✨
Hey Cherie Fam! 🍒 I finally received and unboxed my November BoxyCharm premium. For those unfamiliar with Boxycharm, it is a subscription service that gives you 5 full size make up products monthly. The base box comes with 5 items for 25 a month. If you want premium, it is 35. You get 2-3 more items than the base box. I used the star ⭐️ of the show (or rather star of the box) which is Illamasqua artistry palette. This retails for $47 USD. This palette performs well. The mattes were not patchy and the shimmers were impactful. There’s quite a fall out so I recommend doing your eye first before complexion. Then I used DoC single block eyeshadow in the shade Night Sky. This is perfect for a cool toned Smokey eye look. I used this for a pop of blue on my lower lash. #Dose of Colors - Block Party[products]# The realher lip liners come in a duo. I love the packaging because it doesn’t require sharpening. The formula was so pigmented and creamy. I was pretty impressed to be honest. I received a pencil eyeliner from the same brand on my last box and I didn’t like it at all. The Too Faced canary diamond highlighter, Lilly Lashes triple x mascara and Alamar’s gloss are from the pop up. I got them 80% off retail price! I wasn’t a fan of the mascara at first, but after applying it with a lash primer, it was amazing. It lengthened, darkened, and gave me volume. The highlighter was okay. It’s pretty but it’s quite chunky. I’m more of a subtle, glow-from-within type of highlighter. If you’re a fan of blinding highlighters, this is for you. I am a huge fan of the packaging. The lip gloss is ok. I wouldn’t pay full price for it however. Too Faced - Diamond Light Highlighter Lilly LASHES - Triple X Mascara HOURGLASS - Arch Brow Micro Sculpting Pencil aLamar COSMETICS - Desnudeas Lip Gloss Coqueta So far I am pretty satisfied with my box this month. If you are subscribed, what is your favorite product from your box? Xoxo, Francesca 💋
