Download the app today to be a part of #BeautyWithoutBarriers and show the world what beauty means to you!Ah, face oils. These restorative formulas have been making waves since the first products were introduced years ago. Beauties from Instagram to Reddit swear by their richly hydrating properties and skin-repairing effects. Even though they're usually suitable for most skin types, how effective they work boils down to the type of oils used and their compositions. Some facial oils work fine as moisturizers while others don't hydrate your skin per se. So, we've ditched all those marketing claims and compiled the 13 best face oils for glowing skin. But first, let's look at some tips to streamline your decision-making process: Tip 1. Refrain from rubbing face oils—or any skincare products—on your skin. Instead, rub the liquid between your palms and then press onto your face lightly till it's taken in. Tip 2. Review the list of ingredients to make sure the oils and extracts used work for your skin type. · If you have acne-prone or oily skin, opt for facial oils that are light and won't clog your pores. Aloe vera, argan, jojoba, tea tree, squalane, almond, marula, frankincense, lemon, rosehip, and evening primrose are recommended. · Dry skin types are the main target of face oils, but you should pay attention to the composition just like everyone else. You can relish argan, squalane, coconut, sunflower, rosehip, olive, maracuja, and grapeseed. · For sensitive skin, remember to start small on your neck before graduating to your beloved face. And opt for oils like lavender and chamomile. Start with 2-3 applications per week and if everything goes smoothly, ramp up the frequency. · Lastly, we have normal and combination skin, which can benefit from most beauty oils. But jojoba, marula, carrot seed, and grapeseed are often praised. Tip 3. Some experts recommend applying face oils after your facial moisturizer. Others take the opposite route. There's evidence that applying after moisturizer is the way to go for dry and sensitive skin. While applying before moisturizer does the magic for oily and acne-prone skin. Well, I always maintain that you'd give both a try and see what works best for you. Alternatively, you can mix both together for a single application. (That reminds me, download Cherie's beauty review app for the best and latest products that work best for you.) 1. Drunk Elephant Virgin Marula Luxury Facial OilA skin-saving oil that's rich in essential fatty acids. It nourishes and moisturizes the skin without clogging your pores. And with no added fragrance or chemicals, it wraps your face in a dewy charm that makes it look younger, healthier. This virgin marula face oil works wonders, especially well for sensitive skin. 2. Wander Beauty Glow Ahead Illuminating Face OilFor flawlessly radiant skin, try this union of castor oil, arginine, black currant seed oil, niacinamide, and many more replenishing ingredients. Glow Ahead Illuminating Face Oil is praised for its ability to make your skin glow and radiate (almost) instantly, irrespective of skin type. 3. Bio-Oil Multiuse Skincare Oil Can you use Bio-Oil on your face? Yes, you can! The non-greasy oil not only treats scars and stretch marks. It also nourishes the skin for even tone, supple texture, and better appearance. Not exactly facial oil, but it does get the job done. And pretty quickly. Bio-Oil is rich in vitamins (A and E) and plant extracts (lavender, calendula, soybean, chamomile, sunflower, and rosemary oils). 4. Advanced Clinicals Tea Tree Oil for Face

Thanks to its fast-absorbing, fast-drying formula of beauty oils, it fights and prevents acne while balancing the skin for better tone, texture, and firmness. U.F.O. Ultra-Clarifying Face Oil also tackles skin issues like blackheads, blemishes, skin cysts, hormonal breakouts, redness, and irritated skin. 7.

Go-To Face Hero OilWith ten amazing plant oils employed, you know this cute hero is here to save the day. Rosehip, jojoba, and almond oils are some of its components, and you sure know they don't play. Take it from this Mecca reviewer with sun-damaged, combination skin: "Face Hero is a fabulous product, and reasonably priced too! It appears almost thick but goes on and sinks into my skin quickly. I don't know what I did before Go-To! This is definitely my 'hero'!10. Peter Thomas Roth Green Releaf Calming Face OilCBD is one of the greatest hypes of the 21st century. And there's evidence that the phytocannabinoid triumphs against wrinkles, fine lines, inflammation, skin dullness, and uneven skin tone. This versatile face oil can bring out your skin's true radiance, but without the CBD. Instead, it combines cannabis sativa seed oil with ginger root extract and bisabolol to give your skin youthful luminosity. Works great for normal, dry and combo skin types, and offers all the benefits of CBD oil for the face.11. The Ordinary 100% Organic Cold-Pressed Rose Hip Seed OilThere's no Godmother of facial oils, but The Ordinary is as close as you can get.

NEW FIND! And I’m pleasantly surprised!?
NEW FIND! And I’m pleasantly surprised!?
It was time to get a new moisturizer. I was currently using the HONEST - Hydrogel Cream paired with the PAULA'S CHOICE - Omega+ Complex Moisturizer , RADHA BEAUTY - Rosehip Oil , and timeless SKIN CARE - Squalane Oil 100% Pure because I have pretty dry skin. I love both of those moisturizers (although I’m not fond of all the Paula’s choice Omega+ complex moisturizer ingredients, but I loooooove the texture and feeling of it ) and love my oils (I won’t stop using the oils), but knew I needed a richer cream and also wanted to keep it down to just one cream, for time and my bank accounts sake. So if you’ve seen my last post, I was deciding between 3 brands but I couldn’t decide and was also nervous to try a new moisturizer, even though I knew I needed one, because I’m also acne prone so a new moisturizer to me was just terrifying lol. I was about to just get my usual HONEST - Hydrogel Cream because I knew it didn’t break me out and I like it a lot, although not quite as moisturizing as I need, it was on the safer side and I can’t imagine going a day without a moisturizer on this Sahara desert of a face!!! But then I discovered this brand I’ve never seen before? It’s called Awake Human. It’s not even a listing on Cherie for me to add the product! I read the ingredients and was intrigued (scroll through pics to see ingredients list), but because of my fear of new moisturizers, I was hesitant.. but I decided to bite the bullet because the ingredients looked amazing, was cheaper than Paula’s choice and the honest beauty’s moisturizer, but had the same amount of product. I received it a few days ago and I am in love!!!!! Soooooo rich and creamy and hydrating feeling, and it had the same smooth, rich, texture as the Paula’s Choice omega moisturizer, that I love so much!!! It comes in a nice little pump type of packaging, which I like. Keeps bacteria and gunk out. If you scroll through my pictures, you’ll see it. And a little bit goes a long way! The picture you see of the product on my fingers is the amount I use, but you can totally use less, especially if you have more oily or normal skin. I just like a lot of moisturizer! Lol I’ve noticed my face is much less dry feeling and looks smoother with less texture. I will keep you updated, but I think this is my new fave!!!! I’m so excited lol. Here the link the purchase: https://www.amazon.com/dp/B07NWXJYVK/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_api_glc_fabc_YHI-Fb9BRJKT0?_encoding=UTF8&psc=1 If you’re hesitant but intrigued like I was, I strongly encourage you to just try it. And if it happens that doesn’t work for your face, because remember, everyone is different and skincare is not a one size fits all, then it would most definitely be a really really nice hand cream, that would fit nicely in your bag. Have you heard of this brand before? And if so, have you used anything from them?
Which moisturizer is right for my skin type?
Which moisturizer is right for my skin type?
A little bit of moisturizing a day keeps the dry skin away! Moisturizing is crucial to a healthy skin barrier. All 𝗺𝗼𝗶𝘀𝘁𝘂𝗿𝗶𝘇𝗲𝗿𝘀 help with dry skin. Yet, not all moisturizers are created equal. So, how do you choose the 𝗿𝗶𝗴𝗵𝘁 𝗺𝗼𝗶𝘀𝘁𝘂𝗿𝗶𝘇𝗲𝗿 for your skin? I am breaking it down today for #WinterSkinReliefDay. In general, 𝗺𝗼𝗶𝘀𝘁𝘂𝗿𝗶𝘇𝗲𝗿𝘀 provide a little bit of water to the skin and contain a greasy substance that holds it in. 𝗠𝗼𝗶𝘀𝘁𝘂𝗿𝗶𝘇𝗲𝗿𝘀 are formulated in 𝟯 𝘄𝗮𝘆𝘀: ✅ 𝗢𝗰𝗰𝗹𝘂𝘀𝗶𝘃𝗲𝘀: greasy/oily and block the evaporation of water from your skin. 💦 𝗛𝘂𝗺𝗲𝗰𝘁𝗮𝗻𝘁𝘀: pull water into the top layer of your skin both from the air and from deeper layers of the skin. 🧖🏾‍♀️ 𝗘𝗺𝗼𝗹𝗹𝗶𝗲𝗻𝘁𝘀: not really moisturizering but rather to make the skin feel smooth by replacing absent skin the lipids and oils to fill in all the cracks on the skin, helping smooth out the surface of your skin and repair your skin’s barrier. Here is a cheat sheet to help you select the appropriate moisturizer for your skin. 𝗣𝗿𝗼 𝘁𝗶𝗽𝘀 📅 𝗠𝗼𝗶𝘀𝘁𝘂𝗿𝗶𝘇𝗲 𝗱𝗮𝗶𝗹𝘆, regardless of your skin type. Even oily skin needs moisturizing every day with the right type of moisturizer. Please avoid moisturizing reactively, aka moisturizering 𝗼𝗻𝗹𝘆 when your skin is dry. 🚿 Always apply to 𝗱𝗮𝗺𝗽 𝘀𝗸𝗶𝗻. P.S I keep my moisturizer in my shower to apply right after I towel off gently. 🔑 𝗨𝘀𝗲 𝗺𝗼𝗿𝗲 𝘁𝗵𝗮𝗻 𝗼𝗻𝗲 𝗺𝗼𝗶𝘀𝘁𝘂𝗿𝗶𝘇𝗲𝗿. This is key for the winter 🥶 months. You need both a humectant which draw moisture to the skin and occlusive ingredients which keep water from evaporating off of your skin. 🌓𝗨𝘀𝗲 𝗮 𝗵𝘂𝗺𝗶𝗱𝗶𝗳𝗶𝗲𝗿. This is really important in the winter if you are using humectant heavy moisturizer. The dry air can pull the water out of your skin. Sounds crazy right? 🚫𝗔𝘃𝗼𝗶𝗱 𝗳𝗿𝗮𝗴𝗿𝗮𝗻𝗰𝗲 𝗮𝗻𝗱 𝗰𝗼𝗹𝗼𝗿𝗶𝗻𝗴. Even if you do not have sensitive skin. Fragrance and coloring are just a set up for possible irritation/allergy and no one has time for that. 🦶🏾 𝗗𝗼𝗻’𝘁 𝗳𝗼𝗿𝗴𝗲𝘁 𝘁𝗼 𝗺𝗼𝗶𝘀𝘁𝘂𝗿𝗶𝘇𝗲 𝘆𝗼𝘂𝗿 𝗳𝗲𝗲𝘁 𝗮𝗻𝗱 𝗻𝗲𝗰𝗸. They too need some TLC. #skincaretips #moisturizer #skincareroutine #skincareproducts #dermatologist #dermatology

Hairstyles for the gym don’t have to be cute - but it’s nice when they are!! Here is a SUPER easy Dutch braid into a bun - perfect for the gym when you don’t want your hair getting in your face when you’re moving around! Begin with the Dutch braid which is a 3 strand braid taking pieces from either side of your head, UNDER the middle strand of hair. Then fluff it out by pulling on the braid strands and then take all of that and put into a half bun, wrap the extra hair and you’re done!!! Literally so easy yall and SO STINKING CUTE!! Xo, Johanna

THIS is why I love BoxyCharm 🙌🏾 These products wouldn’t have been on my radar, but they were delivered right to my door + I absolutely LOVE all of them! And this olive eye!! I’m feelin it! Full tutorial and review are on YouTube now! Link in bio ❤️ Product List: #Violet Voss - Olive You Forever[products]#[FiveStars] This is my first time trying this brand and I'm really impressed! The shadows are creamy, pigmented, and super blendable! FARMACY - Daily Greens Oil-Free Gel Moisturizer with Moringa and Papaya I love the cleansing balm so I was excited to try this! It has definitely helped my skin stay hydrated and even makes it look more glowy and matte! I love the texture and it absorbs quickly! #Avant Skincare - Bi-Phase Hyaluronic Acid Rejuvenating Micellar Water[products]#[FourStars] This reneges ALL my makeup, even mascara, with no issues! My skin feels smooth and hydrated after using it. However, it has a LOT of fragrance. I don't mind the smell, but it does linger. #Seraphine Botanicals - Apple + Baume Glow Lip Mask[products]#[FiveStars] A great lip mask! Hydrated lips nicely! I like applying this as I start my makeup routine and it's usually absorbed by the time I get to my lips. #Trust Fund Beauty - Lipgasm Lip Gloss[products]#[FourStars] this is a pretty gloss but it is a bit sticky. What do you think about this box?
i tried covergirl’s clean fresh line...
i tried covergirl’s clean fresh line...
... and i have a lot to say! it has been ages since i posted a detailed review of a product, so we might as well just dive in! COVERGIRL - Clean Fresh Cooling Glow Highlighter Stick the first product from this collection that i tried was their cooling glow stick. i own shades “opal dreams”, which is a nice opal pale-pink shade, as well as “so gilty” which is a more warm-toned golden nude shade. they are super cooling and have a nice natural sheen to them which can be emphasized by topping with a powder highlight. i find myself reaching for this a lot to make my complexion dewy and nice! COVERGIRL - Clean Fresh Hydrating Concealer i think people who do exclusively natural makeup will love this product. it is creamy and suitable for drier complexions (unlike my own), but the coverage simply isn’t enough for me. i would consider it light-medium, but i do usually choose the higher-coverage (but MUCH DRIER) COVERGIRL - TruBlend Undercover Concealer . COVERGIRL - Clean Fresh Pressed Powder i like this powder. i own the translucent shade and the flashback is nothing crazy. i do find i have to use a lot more of it than i did when i used to use the MAYBELLINE - Fit Me Matte + Poreless Powder. COVERGIRL - Clean Fresh Skin Milk Foundation i like this foundation as well. it does have a unique smell which may trouble some but the coverage is nice and the finish could be described as satin. people either love or hate this foundation, but i think it is great and will certainly repurchase it! OVERALL.... i love this line and i think it is great for everyday natural makeup looks. my favourite is easily the cooling glow stick and least favourite being the hydrating concealer. overall, i love using all of these products together and i will likely repurchase many of them!!⛅️💗 i hope you enjoyed ;) please be sure to follow here and on my IG @chloebrk.mua #cheriecreator
