Download the app today to be a part of #BeautyWithoutBarriers and show the world what beauty means to you!We’ve all been there, you hear everyone raving about a beauty product, then are a little disappointed when you try it. “Nothing worth blogging about,” you sigh, then let the bottle collect dust in your medicine cabinet. Or how about this scenario? You had a true blue cleanser for a while, but forgot about it when you started experimenting with other potions. It’s fun to discover new tips and tricks in the world of beauty products, and there’s always something new to sample! But it can be so rewarding to rediscover an old favourite, or something you tried before that didn’t quite work as you expected. Not sure where to start? Cherie beauty has your back. Here’s our round up of misunderstood or forgotten beauty products we think deserve another chance.TonerToners get a seriously bad reputation. Ask any esthetician, and this is one of their number one gripes! A classic skin care routine should be anchored by 3 steps: cleanse, tone, moisturize. A lot of us shy away from toners thanks to the erroneous assumption that it dries the skin. This is likely thanks to old fashioned toners that go heavy on the alcohol to give you a satisfying tingling sensation- all while stripping you dry! A good toner will balance your skin PH, and actually prep it to absorb moisture. Stay away from toners with high alcohol levels, sodium laureth sulfate, and petroleum.Lush “Breath of Fresh Air” TonerOur favourite is Lush’s “breath of fresh air.” The ingredients are groovy for any skin type, and the spray pump makes it easy to apply. Just spritz, wipe of access with a cotton pad, and follow up with your favourite moisturizer.Tea Tree oilYou probably used tea tree oil in High School, but maybe you haven’t thought about it in a while. It’s often recommended for teens because of its gentle acne fighting abilities. Tea Tree is derived from the leaves of the Melaleuca alternifolia plant, which is native to Australia. Tea tree is lovely on your face, body, and even around the house! It has the cleansing benefits of alcohol without the harsh effects or chemical smell. You don’t have to be acne prone to reap the beautifying benefits this plant has to offer.Thursday Plantation Tea Tree Face Wash FoamWe love this product because it comes straight from the Aussie source. The tea tree effectively cleanses, while calming chamomile combats redness. It’s gentle enough for all skin types, and vegan to boot!

Eye CreamThe biggest mistake you can make with eye cream is putting it off. We tend to be so results-driven with our beauty products, we forget to be preventative. Eye cream may not look like it's having much of an effect on youthful peepers, but you’ll thank yourself later. The skin around your eye is so sensitive. If you’ve tried eye cream in the past and felt irritated by it, it was likely due to your application technique. Use your ring finger to gently tap your eye cream to damp, freshly toned skin. Stay slightly below the eye to avoid irritation. Lastly, let your eye cream set in for a couple minutes before applying moisturizer. If you apply a thicker cream right away, your eye cream goes along with it! You’ll be nice and hydrated, but your undereyes won’t get the targeted attention they need.Glossier Bubblewrap Eye & Lip Plumping CreamWe love this product because it has an immediate plumping effect, so you can see the results right away. The intense hydration helps you out in the long haul, making it a “best of both worlds” product. Bubblewrap is even contact lense wearer approved- so there’s no excuse not to try it.Sponges and Beauty BlendersBeauty blenders and similar sponges have been FRAMED for eating up too much foundation! Did you ditch the blender in favour of a brush, or even your fingers? At Cherie, we’re all about using whatever works best for you- but we’d like to invite you to give the sponge another chance. Blenders and sponges give your skin a gorgeous, diffused look when used with your favourite foundation. As a sponge, these squishy little guys like to eat up moisture, so you’ll want to wet yours before using it. Run your sponge under the tap and squeeze out the excess til it's plump, but not wet. Once the blender has been properly moisturized, your liquid foundation stays on the surface.E.L.F. Total Face SpongeNo budget for a beauty blender? No problem! This effective little number from e.l.f. costs less than your Starbucks run. Added bonus? E.l.f. products are 100% cruelty free.Pressed PowderIn today’s High Definition world, nobody wants to look cakey or flakey, but that doesn’t mean avoiding a pressed powder foundation. Gone are the days of thick “cake” makeup that settled into fine lines. Listen to your aunt Cherie- there’s a world of bouncy, beautiful powders out there to discover. If you have oily or combination skin, or are looking for a final step to your full coverage foundation routine, pressed powders are your perfect match. Swipe a little across your t-zone on light days, or build up that coverage on a night out. Either way, powders can give you the photo finish you want without sacrificing your skin’s natural silkiness.MAC Mineralize Skinfinish NaturalWe love this powder from MAC because it's lightly pearlescent for a 3 dimensional finish, and infused with Vitamin E to hydrate your precious skin while keeping oil at bay. The best thing about it? MAC has a wide selection of shades for all skin tones.

What is the product? Avène - Thermal Spring Water Spray How does it work? Thermal Water works by soothing the skin and calming any irritation What are the notable ingredients? Mineral Spring Water What is the price? $18.50CAD Where can you purchase? Shoppers Drug Mart, Rexall Pharmacy and online How long have I been using it for? I’ve been using thermal water for over two years, I started off using this product on my body and now still use it on my face What is my experience ? My experience with thermal water has been good, I suffer from eczema on both my body and face. It was hard finding products that wouldn’t irritate or cause a flare up. When that happened this product saved my skin and soothed it. At first I was not exactly sure how water would help my skin, but after doing research thermal waters are meant to have healing properties for the body and skin. What are my thoughts? This product is nothing short of amazing, you are able to use it for multiple areas and it lasts so long. The mist is super fine which makes it perfect for spraying on large or small spots, and pressing into the skin similar to how you apply a toner. Would I recommend to a friend? I would absolutely recommend this product to a friend or family or even someone looking to help soothe their skin but who doesn’t want to break the bank!! My overall rating? 5/5 Would I repurchase? I have and will continue to repurchase this product until I find something that exceeds how amazing this is! #CheriePartner

@cheriethanks for the cute sweatshirt! I am obsessed. Here is my am routine! sisley - FLORAL TONING LOTION First I tone and prep my skin with this toner. I love this toner so much because it is so hydrating and doesn’t strip the skin. It also moisturizes while helping to clean and prep it to absorb other products. NATURIUM - Hyaluronic Acid Essence 2% Then I use this essence. I love this brand so much and this essence is so hydrating and light. It helps plump and prepares it for the serum. NATURIUM - Niacinamide Serum 12% Plus Zinc 2% Next I use this serum which I have been enjoying. It is super gentle that I can even use it during the day. So far my skin has been tolerating it very well. I also notice my dark spots decreasing much quicker. LORD JONES - Acid Mantle Repair CBD Moisturizer Then I use this moisturizer that I am obsessed with. It so far has been my favorite product of the year. It’s so hydrating and calming.
