A Serum For Your Scalp
DR. BARBARA STURMScalp Serum
🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟 First impression is that this serum is awesome just like Dr. Barbara Sturm’s face serums. I’ve tried a lot of scalp products in the past and many times feel they are too sticky. This absorbed quite fast and didn’t leave a weird feeling after. Just a hydrated scalp! The one thing with scalp serums that is tricky is easily and evenly distributing it throughout the scalp, but that will come with any serum - not just this one.A Candle That Doubles as Body Oil
This cream is amazing! I love it soooo much and it really works! This cream is what dreams are made of literally! If like me you're having trouble sleeping, look no further! The cream smells like you're laying in a sun -drenched field of lavender in the south of France. The consistency is THICK and so SILKY, it melts straight into the skin. I bought this on Amazon, the price reflects the fact you get what you pay for! Full of magic magnesium and pure organic ingredients-a perfect night's sleep guaranteed every night. Out for the count in no time! Neom Real Luxury Body Scrub 💜 Luxury in a jar! Smells heavenly and feels divine. The body scrub of dreams! Spring is coming and body prep needs to happen, this product is perfect to wake up your skin. Amazing de-stressing ingredients, made with Lavender, Jasmine and Brazillian Rosewood the scrub is sugar-based and whipped up with Jojoba and sunflower oil. My seriously skin didn't know what had hit it! I usually save for this one but at $20 reduced from $40 it's a steal! Neom Real Luxury Intensive Skin Treatment Candle 💝 This treatment candle is so sexy! Luxury with a caal L, love your skin. What's different about this product is that it lights like a candle and acts as a body oil. Light it, drizzle it then massage it on your skin and watch the temperature in the room rise! Made with all- natural ingredients, you can feel the love and goodness in this product. As an added bonus the gorgeous china pot with a pouring spout trimmed in gold is super stylish and refillable. The best product for every woman who wants to feel good and look amazing! I always ask for this as a gift, if I feel I need a glamor boost💋This Rose "Stem Cell" Serum
THE YOPPA GARDENPURE BLOOD EX
amazing essence by Marina from Goryeo Cosmetics. I was super excited about this because I had been spying it on their page and thought it looked so because of the packaging. You all know I'm a sucker for great packaging so I was sold already in wanting to try this but after reading up on what it does I was even more excited to try it. . ♥️ Stem Cell Pure Blood EX. -The Yoppa Garden Stem Cell Pure Blood EX is called the water of life. A drop of red blood that can solve your skins problems. . -Acting directly on the human dermal cells. . -High concentration of Damascus Rose Essence and Hyaluronic acid are the main ingredients of this essence. They activate skin, restoring skin , stimulate skin grow factor, in skin's ability to regenerate and store water. . I totally think the packaging is so along with the name of the essence and if you seen on my story the other day it is actually a sparkly essence when you have a flash light on it.. I use a lot of active ingredients as most of you know so having a essence that helps the skins is exactly what I need to keep my skin healthy. Enjoy your day guys 😘😘An Affordable Drugstore Hack To Pimple Patches
CVS pharmacyAdvanced Healing Hydrocolloid Bandages
I have definitely spent the $30 on in a time of desperation. Then one day I saw these little at CVS! They were about $5 for the exact same product just in a different shape then the ! With hydrocolloid as the main ingredient these help to extract any excess fluids ( or any leftover gunk) from your s. What they help me the most with is not touching my face! I have definitely noticed a difference in how quickly my s heal after using these . You can use them as is or cut them in half to get more bang for your already-cheaper buck. ✌️This CBD 2-in-1 Mask & Scrub
I really enjoy Freeman Beauty skincare because not only are they all super affordable - they have such a diverse variety of products for all skin types!!! Their newest CBD line is so amazing and versatile. 💙 The “Destress” Jelly Mask/Cleanser is super gentle on the skin and doesn’t dry it out at all. It works well for sensitive skin and I love the fact that it’s a 2 in 1 product. 💜 The “Balance” Jelly Mask/ Scrub works best for non sensitive style skin. The scrubbers are super gritty and rough on the skin. I don’t see how this one is a 2 in 1 product because the scrubbers have no purpose when using it JUST as a face maskA Cica Hand Sheet Mask That Moisturizes and Protects
AveenoRepairing Cica Hand Mask
Washing your hands frequently when you have any kind of skin condition is a NIGHTMARE. My hands have been so and chapped and I grabbed this hand mask at Target on a lark and OH MY GOODNESS. My hands feel so soft and it's ed the skin damage on my knuckles! I want to go back and buy ten more. It's that good.An Antiseptic Cream To Keep Ingrown Hairs and Acne at Bay
Bye bye ingrowns, hello soft clear and moisturized skin!!!! This product is a result of one of my deep amazon spirals 💆🏽♀️ (happens often) and it is an antiseptic cream and keeps your skin super duper clean. How to use: after waxing or any hair removal put a dab of this cream, enjoy the tingles and banish any ingrown hairs, , or just weird skin problems that would arise. I use on bikini area, eyebrows, upper lip, but you can truly use it anywhere on your body

Honest thoughts on Curology 🧐
𝐂𝐮𝐫𝐨𝐥𝐨𝐠𝐲 is a customized skincare subscription service - i’m sure we’ve all heard of it! Ever since I learned about prescription tretinoin, I knew I had to try it. I like that Curology can prescribe Tretinoin through an online consultation so it saved me a lot of money. I signed up and I received my first bottle in the first week of 2020. 𝐌𝐲 𝐬𝐤𝐢𝐧 𝐭𝐲𝐩𝐞 & 𝐜𝐨𝐧𝐜𝐞𝐫𝐧𝐬: I have combination, sensitized, acne-prone skin with PIH 𝐌𝐲 𝐩𝐫𝐞𝐬𝐜𝐫𝐢𝐩𝐭𝐢𝐨𝐧𝐬 & 𝐡𝐨𝐰 𝐥𝐨𝐧𝐠 𝐈 𝐮𝐬𝐞𝐝 𝐢𝐭: I used two formulas: First month (January): Tretinoin 0.01% , Clindamycin 1%, Azelaic Acid 4% Next two months: Tretinoin 0.018%, Clindamycin 1%, Azelaic Acid 8% *NOTE: I specifically asked for tretinoin and azelaic acid * I have been using Adapalene for two months before I started Curology and was at the purging stage. 𝐅𝐢𝐫𝐬𝐭 𝐦𝐨𝐧𝐭𝐡: My free trial arrived the first week of January and I tried it right away. As per the instructions, I washed my face with a gentle cleanser, applied moisturizer then the cream. I used it 2x a week. I was alternately using it with Adapelene. For the first month, the effects weren’t super obvious - other than my skin becoming smoother and softer feeling than it ever had before. 𝐒𝐞𝐜𝐨𝐧𝐝 𝐦𝐨𝐧𝐭𝐡: I think my skin was at its worst in my second month of Tretinoin (4th month adapalene). I had more cystic acne and I was literally red all day -- I like to call it my full-on purging stage. I just stuck to it anyway. By this time, my skin was also feeling dry and I had slight peeling. My routine was: cleanser, thick moisturizer, and tretinoin. I was using my formula 3x a week. 𝐓𝐡𝐢𝐫𝐝 𝐦𝐨𝐧𝐭𝐡: The last weeks of the third month was when I saw the big changes in my skin. I was able to use the cream nightly by this time. Only word I can use to describe it is - shocked. I went from having cystic, red acne and rough patches to having smooth and completely calmed skin. Though left with hyperpigmentations, my skin was better than ever. 𝗪𝐡𝐞𝐫𝐞 𝐈 𝐚𝐦 𝐧𝐨𝐰: After 3 months with Curology (with simplified skin care routine and adapalene) almost all of my cystic acnes were gone. Something I had thought months ago never would be possible. In April, I started my Triluma journey (tretinoin 0.5% + hydroquinone +mild steroid) to treat the hyperpigmentations left behind. I finished my tube last May and from then on used another brand of tretinoin (0.5%) for maintenance and to treat PIH. 𝐅𝐢𝐧𝐚𝐥 𝐭𝐡𝐨𝐮𝐠𝐡𝐭𝐬: All I gotta say is that Curology is a great service, for most people. Unfortunately there are some of us for whom the base and/or certain ingredients simply won't work, and I believe that's no fault of Curology. I thoroughly recommend Curology. It’s a great option to get our hands on prescription strength products, like Tretinoin cream, without paying for an expensive private consultation.
Night Owl must have: eye patches 🦉
One thing everyone in real life knows about me is I don’t get sleep. Whether it’s staying up all night (once upon a time my bed time was 5 am - 12 pm. Oof) or just physically not being able to fall asleep it can still take a toll on your skin. When asleep our skin takes the time to properly repair itself. When you don’t get enough sleep it can have negative effects like depleting the moisture levels in your skin giving it a dull look. One thing I like to do to help combat that is eye patches. Eye patches have long been a favorite spa night product for me but recently I realize how much they can help in the morning while I was getting ready. For me they add a cooling effect to the skin which can help depuff the under eyes before make up application. I also really like them because most have glycerin which will help add that hydration back into the delicate under eye area that wasn’t replenished throughout the night. The ones pictured above all include caffeine which helps the look of puffy eyes, soothes, and has antioxidant properties. Also, I love using them as shadow shields for make up fall out. It’s so easy to pop them on while I’m doing my eyeshadow. It multitasks by saving me time in the morning while depuffing and protecting my skin from eyeshadow fallout. (For reference I usually do my eyeshadow before I do my base. I wouldn’t recommend doing this on top of foundation). My absolute favorite are the PETER THOMAS ROTH - Cucumber Hydra-Gel Eye Masks 60 Masks . Between the cucumber and caffeine these do the best at hydrating and depuffing my under eyes in morning. Though retailing at $52 for 30 pairs it is a bit pricy. My next runner up is the pixi - Detoxifeye which retails for $24 for 30 pairs. I do want to give a special shout out/wanting to the GOOD MOLECULES - Caffeine Energizing Hydrogel Eye Patches retailing at $18 for 30 pairs. While I do really like the depuffing effects I get from these I noticed every time I wore these and did my concealer it would pill up. I would recommend these to people who don’t wear make up but if you do I would be cautious. If you wanted to try these I would make sure you do a good job at making sure no excess serum is left over before make up application. I always end up using these at night for that reason which defeats the purpose of using them to depuff the eyes in the morning.
MY DAYTIME SKIN
FACEWASH COMBO ⬇️ Curology - The Cleanser MIXED WITH DR ORGANIC Aloe Vera Hydrating face wash -This combo is great because I am using my Curology acne fighting face wash but mixing in a little bit of the aloe face wash leaves my skin feeling really clean! The Curology face wash is not a lathering face wash rather then a formula that almost gets absorbed so quick into your skin that you can’t even rub it in. I don’t like that so I mix it with my Dr. Organic and get a sudsy lather going! The aloe wash is one of those facial washes that requires not a lot of product. It creates a nice foamy texture once you activate it. Anyway this face wash combo is nice and doesn’t not strip my skin from any moisture or make me break out. Love! DR ORGANIC- HYDRATING ALOE MICELLAR WATER ⬇️ I bought this on a whim while I was shopping online at Ulta! I love putting this on right after I cleanse my face because I feel like it’s getting my skin nice and extra hydrated and ready for all of the other products that I end up putting on! TONER ⬇️ ANDALOU NATURALS - Firming Toner, Coconut Water, Quenching This toner smells good and leaves my skin feeling hydrated. I don’t think it does much for my skin though. If you other Cheries have any toner suggestions I’m totally open for your shares. Comment to let me know what you like to use a a toner! ACNE TREATMENT ⬇️ Curology - Curology formula Look at my previous posts about Curology! MOISTURIZER TRIO ⬇️ Curology - The Moisturizer Look from my previous post about Curology! ANDALOU NATURALS - BB Argan Stem Cell Benefit Balm, Clear Skin, SPF 30, Un-Tinted, 2 fl oz (58 ml) This SPF is THICK and leaves a WHITE mask over your face no matter how much or little you put on. I don’t like the consistency of the texture of the formula from this lotion. I do feel like it really is protecting my skin and it doesn’t leave a greasy finish. I am using this product because I am almost done with it anyway. I will NOT be repurchasing this product though because I have tried way better facial SPF’s. dr.organic - Aloe Vera Gel Maximum Strength I LOVE mixing this with my Curology lotion and SPF because again. Aloe is great for keeping your skin hydrated and plump. Aloe fights any kind of scaring so I feel that adding the aloe gel to my skin routine acts like a shield from getting bad or any acne scars!!! This formula is very light and a little sticky but does not leave your face feeling tacky. I love how cooling and refreshed it has your skin feeling too! AM SERUM ⬇️ TRULY - Hemp Oil Facial Serum This. Is. My. 4th. Bottle. Purchased.!!!! I will say nothing more than that... EYE CREAM ⬇️ Kiehl's - Creamy Eye Treatment With Avocado Look for my previous review post for this eye cream! I love love love this eye cream! Thanks babes & stay safe 🍒
Let’s Debunk Some Skincare Myths
To say there’s a plethora of beauty information out there would be an understatement. It can be difficult to determine what are good tips and what are myths, especially if there’s conflicting information. Let’s debunk 3 common ones that I still hear/see around the web/beauty community. ￼￼If your makeup contains SPF you don’t need SPF underneath. Why is this myth incorrect? You would need to apply a lot of foundation, tinted moisturizer, or BB/CC cream to get the proper amount of SPF needed to protect your skin. For example, I have the ILIA - Super Serum Skin Tint SPF 40 Foundation with SPF 40. I only apply about the size of a dime for my whole face, and this product only provides sheer-light coverage. I would need multiple layers of this to protect my skin from UVA/UVB. You should apply SPF underneath your makeup (at least the size of a quarter!) to ensure adequate protection. I love the Supergoop! - Unseen Sunscreen Broad Spectrum SPF 40 because it’s good for all skin types, doubles as a makeup primer, reef-safe, and is cruelty-free. ￼￼Face wipes clean your face as well as cleanser. Nope! Face wipes may seemingly remove all your makeup and SPF residue, but they don’t have the ability to properly cleanse your face. I don’t usually use face wipes, but I received these RAWGANIC - Pure Refreshing Facial Wipes for Christmas from a family member. I use them to remove makeup before heading to the gym or at the end of the day. If using at the end of the day, always follow up with cleanser to remove excess residue!!! Face wipes would be a good option in the AM if you have extra dry skin and want to feel clean without having to wash. ￼Don’t mix vitamin C and niacinamide. Why is this a myth? It was believed that combining anything with vitamin C, especially niacinamide, would negate the effects of vitamin C. Vitamin C is awesome for brightening and fading dark spots, and niacinamide is great for enlarged pores, dull skin, and acne scarring. Combining these two powerhouse ingredients, such as in the GOOD MOLECULES - Niacinamide Brightening Toner , is a match made! That toner makes such a difference in my skin’s appearance (pores, dullness, scarring). Don’t want to combine but still reap the benefits? Use vitamin C in the AM (such as THE inkey LIST - Vitamin C Brightening Cream ) and niacinamide in the PM (such as PURITO - Centella Unscented Serum which contains niacinamide). You can have your cake and eat it, too! I personally will use these serums (or other ones in my collection) one right after another, but everyone’s skin is different.

Gentle exfoliator for sensitive skin 👌🏻
DERMAFLASH - Ultrasonic Pore Extractor & Serum Infuser 𝗪𝐡𝐚𝐭 𝐢𝐭 𝐢𝐬: A two-in-one skincare device that uses ultrasonic waves at 33,000 Hz per second to unclog pores and infuse your favorite skincare products. Dermapore offers 𝐭𝐰𝐨 𝐦𝐨𝐝𝐞𝐬 for a customized treatment experience: 𝐄𝐱𝐭𝐫𝐚𝐜𝐭 𝐌𝐨𝐝𝐞 - cleans your skin by removing dirt, oil, and blackheads. 𝐈𝐧𝐟𝐮𝐬𝐞 𝐌𝐨𝐝𝐞 - enhances the penetration of active ingredients. 𝐇𝐨𝐰 𝐭𝐨 𝐮𝐬𝐞: 1. Press the Power Button once to activate Extract Mode which is indicated by a steady vibration and white light. 2. Apply gentle, yet firm pressure as you glide the device over your face and neck. Pay particular attention to congested areas. 3. After using Extract Mode, wipe the device clean with alcohol or soap and water to prepare the device for use in Infuse Mode. 4. Apply your favorite serum or moisturizer. 5. Press the Power Button twice to activate Infuse Mode which is indicated by a tapping vibration and blue light. 6. Using the flat portion of the spatula, glide dermapore over your serum or moisturizer—the ultrasonic vibration enhances penetration of the active ingredients in your skincare to help them work more effectively. I have been using Dermapore for months now, and I absolutely love it. It took 2-3 runs to figure out how to use it effectively. I was honestly quite surprised by how effective this product was at unclogging my pores. I have a congested and very oily T-zone and this little charm cleans out 90% of the gunk from my nose with ease. I don’t steam my face and straightly just wet my face and it still works great. I keep a small spray bottle at hand and spritz my face to keep my skin wet throughout the process. I like to use a little pressure with the spatula as it helps push the water into the skin and in turn pushing excess dirt/oil buildup out of my pores. It’s kind of gross but incredibly satisfying and gives you the results you’d expect from a professionally done facial. If you have very minimal blackheads or whiteheads, this may not be that worth it. But if you’re someone who has oily skin that constantly deals with comedones, this can be a game-changer for you.
