Beauty Brands That Give Back To The EarthYou'll feel good about what you're doing for your skin, and the earth, when you purchase from these beauty brands.
Though Cherie is a beauty app for beauty lovers, we also truly believe in our responsibility to stand for important causes. We're celebrating Earth Day all week here at Cherie with our sustainability awareness campaign called "A Breath of Fresh Air". This week, we'll be sharing different ways we can be, and provide, a breath of fresh air to ourselves and the earth. Think doing small activities like walking or biking instead of driving, or purchasing from brands that give back to the earth. After all, everything begins with us! Ahhh, companies that care about you and the earth... what a breath of fresh air 😉Sustainability occurs at every stage of the supply chain, and these brands do their part in sustaining the earth, one product at a time.

codex BEAUTYBia Exfoliating WashHonestly, Codex has set the new standard for what it means to be a sustainable beauty brand. They are so committed to sustaining the beauty of our earth that it is a part of every step of their brand: from formulation, to packaging, and even transportation. Here's a few key ways they are helping the earth: - Plant-Based Packaging: Codex uses green, plant-based polyethylene tubes, a sustainable plastic alternative extracted from sugarcane waste which has decreased carbon footprint up to 81%. - Recyclable Cartons: Made of renewable fresh fiber from sustainably managed forests. Codex's cartons are slo PEFC certified (Program for the Endorsement of Forest Certification) which means that the supply chain of producing their cartons are done so with the highest ethical, social, and environmental standards. - Smart Transportation: Codex Beauty has carefully engineered packaging designs that maximize the density of products to ensure shipping efficiency; these careful considerations support the current and future effort to maintain a very low carbon footprint. - Organic Sourcing: Each ingredient that goes into Codex’s plant-based formulas is carefully sourced, relying on wild harvesting techniques to select naturally hardy plants. Only the parts needed are used, leaving the rest of the plant intact to preserve its natural life cycle.

The cherry on top? Their cartons and boxes are all made of 100% post consumer recycled cardboard and papers. No bubble wrap and unnecessary plastic here!Love Beauty & Planet

LUSHJade RollerThe bath products loved around the world, Lush does so much more than turn our baths into an out-of-this-world experience. Lush is a pioneer in sustainable packaging by having, well, no packaging. Known for its "naked" products, Lush removes the water content, and therefore the preservatives, from their products so that they last long on their own eliminating the need for packaging. Any product that isn't naked is subsequently packaged in 100% recycled pots. In addition, their Charity Pot lotion donates 100% of proceeds to social and environmental justice programs. Some of their current initiatives include turning ocean waste into packaging, fighting animal cruelty in the beauty world, Trans rights, and supporting refugees. by Humankind

this hair repair treatment saved my split ends!
this amazing hair mask was kindly gifted by Sol De Janeiro. You know that feeling when tranquility washes over you, you hear the crunchy waves crash onto the shore, you feel that cool breeze envelope your body like a blanket, and you can almost taste the salty air? that’s how I felt using this hair mask. It felt like I was on a tropical island, sipping on pink lemonade. no joke, after washing this mask off I immediately noticed that my split ends were repaired. It was like magic. as somebody with major split ends and hair breakage, it literally felt like this mask was working voodoo on my head. i usually lose a lot of my hair, and my split ends look... well split. not with this mask. it hydrated my hair like no other, and smelled SO SO SO amazing. it even made my hair much more manageable to detangle and style. def recommend, 10/10.
The best workout hairstyle!
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

Why hello there! I’m continuing on my how to tutorials. I really like this series breaking down all makeup trends and putting up how to tutorials for all makeup artist levels for makeup trends. Continuing on the wing liner, I used a liquid liner for my wing tutorial which is what I normally do. But liquid liners are not very beginner friendly. So this tutorial will teach you how to create an intense wing liner using a matte black eyeshadow. So check out the tutorial above to see how I achieve a wing liner using eyeshadow. Next tutorial will be the last of the wing liners. Products used: ￼COLOURPOP - Stone Cold Fox Shadow Palette ￼MORPHE - M165 Angle Liner and Brow Brush ￼MORPHE - M217 Bent Liner Brush Until tomorrow Xoxo 💋 #CherieCreator

Cleanse your skin like a pro
Cleansing is the first step of any skin regime, and it's essential to your skin's health that it is done correctly. Cleansing the skin removes makeup, sunscreen, and impurities/pollution built up from the day. Always use a Ph balanced cleanser to avoid compromising your skin's barrier. I generally switch out my gel cleanser for milk or balm in the winter months as my skin becomes drier. I find milk or balms more hydrating and soothing for the skin. My go-to right now is BIOLOGIQUE RECHERCHE - Lait Vip O2 Oxygenating Milk Cleanser paired with either the mini glove Biologique Recherche or the Luna Cleaning tool FOREO - LUNA Mini 2 Facial Cleansing Brush Fuchsia to aid deeper cleaning and increase blood circulation while massaging the skin. Try not to skip cleansing at night no matter how sleepy you are, sleeping with your makeup on goes far beyond clogged pores. Sleeping with your makeup on in the long term will prematurely age your skin due to the breakdown of collagen from environmental pollutants left on the skin. Always cleanse your skin twice at night. Double cleansing is key in removing makeup and sunscreen effectively. Makeup and sunscreen are designed to stick to the skin, and one cleanse just not going to cut it. Use colder water, never hot water to cleanse your skin. Heat is not your skin's friend; it can cause tewl (transepidermal water loss), lead to irritation, dehydration and sensitivity. Avoid cleansing the skin in the shower, the water is generally too hot, and the shower's pressure can lead to burst vessels. Pat dry, do not aggressively rub your skin with a towel - I hear too many times people rub their skin aggressively with a dry face cloth to exfoliate the skin - stop it. Be gentle with your skin; there are better ways to exfoliate your skin - trust me. Which moves me on to P50 lotions BIOLOGIQUE RECHERCHE - LOTION P50 PIGM 400 Follow your cleansing routine with the correct P50 lotion for your skin type. P50 lotion is a gentle but effective way to exfoliate, hydrate the skin while maintaining the skin's Ph and respecting its barrier function. My go-to P50 right now is Pig400 which also targets hyperpigmentation concerns.
