Cherie is an online community of beauty lovers sharing their stories; whether that's their favorite products, makeup tutorials, or skincare routines. Download the app today to be a part of #BeautyWithoutBarriers and show the world what beauty means to you!'It worth every penny you spent!' This is almost the highest praise for a beauty product, right? We all hope the hydrating cream we bought will keep us away from flakes and dryness, and the anti-aging serum can fade away wrinkles just as it claims (but until years pass, you can't really know). But the truth sometimes may disappoint us: not every of our beauty products do works wonders, even if you have already used it up. Our beauty lovers in Cherie do know this feeling, and they shared the empties which are not cost-effective enough, work poorly, or have an unpleasant smell. To save your time and money, we rounded up 8 popular products that are from the following brands: - ESTÉE LAUDER - Dermalogica - Tatcha - THAYERS - YOUTH TO THE PEOPLE - Mario Badescu - Drunk Elephant - June Jacobs *All products featured below are sourced from the posts of Cherie's users.

Mar. 11, 2020
This product claims that it can help the problem of puffiness, wrinkles, and dark circles. To my disappointment, it doesn't work for me. ❎Puffiness I've got puffy eyes and counted on this cream to help with it. But The Ordinary Caffeine Solution 5% + EGCG Eye Essence is much more useful. You'd better try it instead of this eye cream. ❎Wrinkles This eye serum is not efficient enough to moisturize and treat the skin under my eyes. I don't see it working to reduce wrinkles. 🤔 ❎Dark Circles This eye cream is completely USELESS to dark circles! Maybe it was my ridiculous thought to use an eye cream to relieve my dark circles. Now I learned and will depend on concealer next time. All in all, it hasn't done any of what it claims. Since I have already used it all up, I can responsibly say that it doesn't work AT ALL. On the flip side, it hasn't hurt my skin. Just not worth the money.2. Dermalogica Clear Start Blackhead Clear
I decided to try them because of my issues with my blackheads being very noticeable and wanted to see how this would help them. I started only using this occasionally, but for the past 2 months I have been using this at least 2 or 3 times a week (how much it states to use it on the bottle), which is how I finally finished this bottle! I still have one more bottle left that expires in October, so glad to have this one gone 😝 Once I started using this product consistently, I noticed a somewhat improvement in my blackheads, but nothing spectacular or that noticeable. I do still use pore strips and those help more than this, but this is obviously less harsh. What I enjoy most of this product is how it fizzes! I don’t find anything remarkable about this product and wasn’t impressed. This sounds neat in theory, but wouldn’t recommend it because there was basically no improvement that could be accredited to this product alone.3. Tatcha Violet C Brightening Mask
I finished this entire travel size in 3 uses and it did not improve my skin. So, to give it a full chance I purchased the full size. I have been using it ever since but I unfortunately do not see any visible effects on my skin. I was literally sad about it coz I love the brand so much and love so many of their products. I tried to love this mask hard but I think this mask and me were just not meant to be.4. THAYERS Alcohol-Free Witch Hazel Facial Toner
I feel like I did the impossible: I finished an entire bottle of THAYERS - Alcohol-Free Witch Hazel Facial Toner. The toner is a cult classic that has aloe aloe vera and witch hazel extracts. It is supposed to “soothe and naturally cleanse” your skin. After cleansing your skin, you are supposed swipe the product on to your skin with a cotton ball/pad. My first post on Cherie was about an empties pile. In that pile was the Thayer’s WH. I got them from Amazon. The second bottle had a different font so I am not sure if my first bottle was fake since there have been allegations of fakes being sold on Amazon. At the time, I gave it 2 stars, but since DMing and watching LAbeautyologist, I had to bump it down to 1 star. Not only did it not help my skin, but it also boosted my oil production because witch hazel is an ASTRINGENT. Toners are supposed to restore skins pH so this isn’t a toner. We have been hoodwinked and bamboozled. I am so glad that finished the first bottle. The second one would probably work as a brush cleaner.
5. YOUTH TO THE PEOPLE Superfood Antioxidant Cleanser

this is not a repurchase for me. I found it was onto successful if used in a specific double cleanse or it left me feeling either filmy or very dry. I loved the texture before it was mixed with water which then it became super sudsy. I have combo-oily skin in summer and combo-dry in winter. This was a total miss no matter what I season I used I in. I’ve tried to love this and just can’t. I’m proud of myself for finishing since I’m on a no- buy, but this def isn’t the one for me.6. Mario Badescu Facial Spray
aloe vera, cucumber & green tea mist. this does nothing for me ☹️ I ended up using it to spray my makeup sponges with to blend in my foundation & concealer. which worked great! buuuuut...that’s not what it’s meant for. I didn’t feel any refreshing, hydrating qualities from this. it was essentially scented water. I had heard a lot of good things about this brand when I first joined the beauty community, so I thought I’d give this mist a go. no such luck for me! I would recommend other facial sprays over this. and if you were even remotely interested in trying this, elf has a similar product for a couple dollars cheaper.7. Drunk Elephant Lip Balm
This is a very “meh” empty for me. Sure, it’s hydrating but the hydration for me only lasts around 20 minutes and it spreads past my lips all around my mouth which is annoying. It actually spreads SO easily it gets on my teeth and on my tongue and it feels like it’s stuck there for a while with a stale taste. I feel like it’s nice for use at night when I’m not going to conscious for all of the negative side effects of this balm 😂 and once you’re down to the last bit like I am, there is an annoying plastic rim & you have to use a scooper or your finger to get the rest out...and it’s $18 so I don’t feel like I can justify throwing it away at this point.8. June Jacobs Papaya Purifying Enzyme mask
I picked this up last Christmas in a gift set of like 4-5 different June Jacobs mini masks, and I like this. It wasn’t anything special, it didn’t help with acne but it helped with exfoliating. It claims to moisturize, firm & help improve skin tone. Leave on 3-10 minutes depending on skin sensitivity but I only Left it on 3 mins before it started to burn. I wiped it off and my skin looked great though, it felt moisturized and my skin wasn’t red or irritated. I used it all up so it wouldnt go to waste and I didn’t hate it. But I wouldn’t repurchase because I don’t enjoy the scent, and it’s $60.00 USD For 4oz and I don’t think it’s worth it! I didn’t see results like crazy so the price isn’t worth it for me. I wouldn’t recommend it either as I prefer a chemical exfoliator or serum to hydrate in place of this.

My Top 5 Foundations for Oily Skin
Here are my top 5 foundations for oily/combination/acne prone skin! These are by no means my only favorite foundations, just the ones I keep going back to. 1. ESTĒE LAUDER - Double Wear Stay-in-Place Foundation This matte, oil-free foundation controls oil all day. It’s sweat, heat and humidity-resistant, waterproof and 24-hour colour true. With buildable, medium-to-full coverage that feels lightweight and so comfortable. No touchups needed. Best for hot weather/ holidays. The only Downside is that it doesn’t come with a pump 2. MAYBELLINE - Fit Me! Matte & Poreless Foundation This foundation is a must have if you are looking for a good drugstore option for oily skin. It’s super affordable and gives a beautiful finish without feeling heavy on the skin. 3. HUDA BEAUTY - Fauxfilter Foundation is perfect for you if you are looking for full coverage. Just a couple of pumps go a long way. However, the formula isn’t ideal for anyone with dry skin or for people sensitive to string fragrances. 4. L'ORÉAL - Infallible Pro-Matte Liquid Longwear Foundation This formula blends unbelievably well and you can build this to completely full coverage! ! I'm beyond impressed for this being drugstore. 5. The Ordinary - Colours Coverage Foundation with SPF 15 this is my everyday foundation and gives good enough coverage. I just have to mix two different shades to get my color as the range is quiet limited but for the price I pay, I don’t mind. Always stay away form words like “dewy”, “luminous”, “shiny” , “glowy” if you have oily skin. Let me know if you have any questions.

The best sunscreen for dry skin☀️
Y’all… Let me tell you how dry my skin gets. My skin gets so dry that it looks like my skin is actually flaking. I have struggled with dry skin my entire life and I hardly find any products that truly help my skin. I reached out to a friend who gave me a skin care routine and she suggested this sunscreen PURITO - Centella Green Level Unscented Sun SPF50+ it is honestly the best! Not only is it scent free but it hydrates my skin without burning it. I have high sensitivity to a lot of products and this is one that doesn’t make my skin irritated or break out. If you struggle with dry skin, try out this sunscreen! Not only does it help with the dryness but also you should always be protecting your face with sunscreen!!!
CMON MADDIE..... Really ? 😒
okay so i’m sorry for the light this week but i’m working on a work station. However this Morphe Maddie palette isn’t doing it for the me. In my opinion I believe to pull a good palette together is blend ability and good shimmer or glitters. The shimmers on the is so trash 🗑 sorry to say. i literally had to dig for a good creamy shine. However it isn’t a complete miss. The other colors did have some good pigment and my fav shade is the black shade. It was really dark and blendable. I would probably recommend this to someone with more fair skin because they pigments and shimmers would work better in their favor. Have you used this palette if yes tell me all about below, if no would you still wanna try it out and why ?
