See which removal remedy below fits your lifestyle the best.RazorsShaving is basically everyone's go-to when it comes to removing every hair follicle on your body. It's quick, affordable, and gets the job done. It's so common in fact, that you're probably thinking: "Well, duh." However, explore some of these razors that might change the game for you a bit. Billie Razors manufacture razors that are made specifically for women. This company understands that women shave 10x more area than the typical man. So you need a razor that can hold up to that kind of work. The razor itself is encased in 360° of charcoal shave soap and has 5 premium stainless steel blades to help you get the smoothest shave.

billieBillie RazorForget the pink tax and try the Dollar Shave Club. It might be targeted towards men, but obviously, women can still use the razors. The reason the Dollar Shave Club is on this list is that they send the razors to your home quarterly throughout the year. So for those last-minute shaving sessions, you don't have to worry about dull blades and razor bumps.
DOLLAR SHAVE CLUBBLADES THE EXECUTIVEFlamingo is a great company to support because they understand that shaving should receive some real attention. They believe that when you show up for yourselves in private, you can show up for yourself in public wearing a bikini on the beach with Jimmy. The Flamingo razor is similar to basically any razor. Though what stands out are the 5 Gothic cut Swedish steel blades that help remove any unwanted hair you might have.

Regardless of your attitude surrounding waxing, you have to admit the results speak for themselves. Waxing is a solid way to get a quick result that lasts longer than shaving, though the sacrifice is suffering a bit of discomfort. But you know what they say, 'beauty is pain.' Cherie.com has some interesting beauty articles you should check out if you'd like to learn more about societal beauty. There are various types of at-home waxing kits that you can try; it all depends on your experience level, pain tolerance, and patience. Nair Wax Ready Strips are a safe way to remove hair, there's no need to heat the wax and put yourself at risk of a burn. If the price is a concern, you can't go wrong with Veet's Ready-To-Use Wax Kit. It's similar to Nair's ready wax strips but cheaper.Depilatory Creams Speaking of Nair and Veet, depilatory creams are also a quick solution to unwanted fuzz. Depilatory creams are great for those for a low threshold for pain and need something in a pinch. They can be a bit messy though. Depilatory creams work by dissolving the hair follicle just below the surface of the skin. You basically put the cream on, wait a bit, then wash it away to reveal baby smooth skin. Bada-bing-bada-boom. Because you're basically melting your hair away, you should do a patch test before you go all out for your Brazilian style. That goes for waxing as well. Another thing to note when it comes to using depilatory creams is that the results may vary based on the size of the area the cream is used on, the amount of hair, and the thickness of the follicle. While Nair and Veet are household names when it comes to these kinds of creams, there are other brands to try as well.Gigi Hair Removal Lotion contains cocoa butter, Vitamins C and E, and natural oils to help soothe the skin as it dissolves your hair. If you'd like to err on the side of caution, try Nad's Sensitive Skin Hair Removal Cream. Nad's loads their product with natural extracts of melon, aloe vera, avocado oil, and honey to protect the skin as well.Dermaplaning Dermaplaning razors exfoliate the skin to create a smooth canvas. While they can technically be used for different parts of the body, a popular use is for removing peach fuzz on your face. Sephora has these awesome, affordable razors made specifically for peach fuzz.

Skin Barrier Skin Savior 🙏🏾
Thank you @cheriefor this amazing gift 🤩🤩 Something thing I am very particular about is my moisturizer. My skin barrier tends need the extra TLC and the best thing to give it is moisture. So when I look for a moisturizer I need something that gives me instant hydration and doesn’t clog my pores. So when I received the : BASE BUTTER - Radiate Face Jelly Aloe Vera Gel Face Moisturizer I was so excited! The Brand : ✨Black Owned ✨Women Owned ✨Cruelty Free ✨Non-Comedogenic ✨Vegan ✨Paraben Free 🔑 Ingredients : ✨Aloe Vera Juice ✨Shea Butter ✨Evening Primrose Oil Okay, as you can see your girl woke up DULL! The only thing I did for this video was wash my face and use this to show y’all the transformation! I was using this EVERY night but last night I used my acne treatment routine and your girl FELT THAT (salicylic acid can be so drying to my combo skin). What’s my favorite part? This baby doesn’t have a smell or heavy greasy feel, so it perfect year round! At $21 this is a DEAL ! (The line I used on my cheek covered the entire bottom portion of my face!) Have you tried this brand?

At Home Exfoliating Facial ✨✨
So I recently received the Mimi Co Exfoliating Wand via IG PR. I couldn’t wait to do a full facial and I decided to do it tonight. Order: I purchased a steamer from Amazon for $23 and I’m obsessed with it (DM me for product info). I started with UpCircle - Cleansing Face Balm With Apricot Powder As my oil cleanse to get my sunscreen from today off and any other oils and dirts. INDIE LEE - Purifying Face Wash This cleanser is perfect for getting dirts and oils from skin as well. It’s not drying and it’s totally worth it! I paired it with a face cleansing scrub brush, I also purchased from Amazon. I love it and I paid around $20 for it as well! It doubles the vibration frequency put out by Foreo. CLARISMA - Namaste Glow Energizing Face Mask This was the mask I chose for the enzyme properties. This breaks down dirts and oils in pores and dead skin cells. I also steamed my face during this time. Follain - Toning Mist: Balance + Prime This was what I sprayed over my face for the prep for my exfoliating wand. I didn’t have a true medium and I am out of Aloe Vera plants so😭 I then exfoliated with my wand starting at my cheeks and working upward and then to my forehead. I went down and to the sides of my nose. Glow slow! innisfree - Jeju Lava Seawater Lotion I used the toner to cleanse my skin and get any dirts left over from me exfoliating. SUMMER FRIDAYS - Jet Lag Mask I use this as my hydrating mask. I took the back of my Mimi Co Wand on switched to the Moisturizing Setting. I gently slid upwards my entire face for the last 2 mins only and then wiped the mask off with a damp cloth. earthtoskin - Tea Time Anti Aging Eye Cream This is the most hydrating eye cream I own. I used this with the back of my cleansing brush on the heat setting! Yes it made my eye feel so hydrated and relaxed. fresh - Lotus Anti-Aging Night Moisturizer This was the final step as a good moisturizer seals in everything! To prevent acne I use the SUNDAY RILEY - U.F.O. Ultra-Clarifying Face Oil as my last step. I didn’t use an astringent type toner, so I wanted to still treat my skin💚
DISAPPOINTED BY THESE 100% NATURAL PRODUCTS 😩
I was so excited to try these out because I love moisturizers & I am always in search of a good one! These looked & sounded very promising! They’re from a woman owned company, completely natural, vegan, & cruelty free! However, I was quite disappointed. EARTH HARBOR - MERMAID MILK Nutrient Glow Moisturizer This moisturizer claims to give you a glow right away & it contains spirulina + matcha. I was excited about the matcha because it has so many amazing benefits for skin. It has a very whipped consistency which I like. However it always contains essential oils that were strong, although not toooo strong for my liking. But I’m really just not a fan of essential oils in my face creams. The moisturizer did make my skin appear a little brighter but the cream just sat on my face. All day long I could touch my face & still feel the cream sitting there! I hate that feeling! It also almost gave me a greasy appearance after a while? Not a fan. EARTH HARBOR - SIREN SILK Multi-Tasking Hydration Creme This one was absolutely awful. If I could give it 0 stars I would. It says to use it at night time & the apply it at least 5 minutes before bed so it can absorb on your face & not your pillow. It contains Sea Retinol + other Superherbs which normally make me love a product! But that just wasn’t enough here. First, when I put it on my face my eyes started to actually burn & I felt suffocated from the scent. It was THAT strong. Guys, I’m not being dramatic at all. The smell like attacked me it was crazy! I have never had something like that happen with a face cream! I couldn’t believe how strong the fragrance was. & to top it off, it wasn’t even a pretty smell. My husband described it as smelling like floor cleaner. But I powered through. The longer I had it on, the more “used” to the smell I got. So, I wore it overnight. But then I woke up even more upset with it! I had pilling all over my face. It almost looked like my face was peeling but it wasn’t, it was jus the cream. One thing I cannot stand about a moisturizer is pulling. That’s enough for me to throw it out! It also didn’t really even moisturize my face that well! All in all, I hated this experience. But if you want, you should try them out for yourself, don’t let my experience deter you from trying something new! I however, will be sticking with my Youth To The People Dream Mask & Superfood Whipped Moisturizer! Love those two!! YOUTH TO THE PEOPLE - Superberry Hydrate + Glow Dream Mask YOUTH TO THE PEOPLE - Superfood Air-Whip Moisture Cream 💗💗💗 @cherie@Cheriebeauty@CheriePick
Black Owned Makeup Look
So I decided to use the products I pictured in my first photo (minus my highlight shade and lipstick) I used the #Ace Beaute - Nostalgia Palette[products]#[FiveStars] for my entire eye look. I definitely enjoyed these products. My only advice is to shake the UOMA BEAUTY - Say What?! Foundation before use (because it can come out watery) but the coverage is absolutely flawless. I was shocked with the consistency the coverage I got. What’s your favorite black owned brands? (I do not own right to the song)
