Picture this: you spend all that time watching YouTube video reviews, reading skincare blog testimonials, and scouring the internet for the best skincare products, all guaranteeing incomparable glow. The truth will come chasing you, though: no matter how good your products may be, your efforts (and money!) will keep falling short if you’re not keeping everything clean. It would be such a shame to throw your skin’s health away and the efficacy of your products to thriving families of bacteria. Such issues can arise from contaminated tools and storage. Good habits and cleanliness also make for the best skincare routines, so it’s only logical that you take great care of how you clean your tools, surroundings, and habits. Here are some easy tips you can follow to keep everything sanitary: 1. Never forget to wash your hands!This one is quite obvious, and needed now more than ever given the current pandemic. You should strictly follow this rule, especially before touching your face. A simple rinse doesn’t count either, as it’s crucial to wash every crevice for at least 20 seconds to get rid of all bacteria. Although frequent hand washing is vital, don’t let your hands turn as rough as sandpaper in the process. Make sure your chosen soap isn’t harsh—the rule of thumb: anything with scented comes with harsh chemicals you wouldn’t want touching your skin frequently. If cracking and drying ensue, make sure you apply enough moisturizer to help your skin heal. 2. Clean your beauty tools regularlyIf you’re using it on your face, be it a makeup brush or your trusty gua sha, make sure that you clean them thoroughly at least once a week. If it’s the flu and cold season, wash it even more frequently to prevent bacteria and viruses from forming. From brushes and beauty sponges, opt to use a facial cleanser of dish soap to wash away dirt, grime, and makeup build-up. For rollers, dipping it in warm water and drying with a soft towel will do just the trick! For maximum infection protection, make it a habit to spray all your tools once a week with a bit of rubbing alcohol.3. Get rid of all your expired productsIt’s understandable to want to hang on to beauty products already past their prime, especially if you’ve spent quite a lot on them. Unfortunately, doing this won’t be doing your skin any favors. Using expired products may be causing your current products, so it’s best to let them go. As they pass expiration, your beauty products lose potency and become home to harmful bacteria—which could then cause infections and breakouts. So, yes—let that toner go, no matter how beautiful the packaging may be. 4. Make sure you store your skincare products properlyThe effectiveness and safety of your products are directly proportional to how you store it. If you store your products improperly, you risk losing their potency. Moreover, you encourage bacteria and germs to thrive in them. The best way to store your products is to keep them away from sunlight exposure, particularly somewhere cool and dry. You can store them on shelves or drawers, making sure they’re away from the humidity and moisture your bathroom houses.The TakeawayYou may spend hours researching the best skincare products and reviews, but if you don’t change your hygiene habits, no product will be able to work properly.

🥑GLOW RECIPE AVOCADO MELT RETINOL SLEEPING MASK
🥑GLOW RECIPE AVOCADO MELT RETINOL SLEEPING MASK
🥑 - GLOW RECIPE AVOCADO MELT RETINOL SLEEPING MASK - 🥑 I purchased this Sleeping Mask from Boxycharm Add-ons because I’ve always wanted to try this brand. I really wanted the Watermelon one but they didn’t have it. BUT you can’t beat the price I paid for it. Lol This cozy, Retinol-Powered Sleeping Mask has Avocado, Matcha, gently smoothing PHA and encapsulated Retinol which is released throughout all hours of the night for skin recovery. This Sleeping Mask is Cruelty Free, Vegan and Free of Harmful Chemicals. - My First Impressions - I have said this before, and I’ll say it again, I’m a sucker for pretty packaging. This Sleeping Mask comes in a cute little glass jar. It’s green because it’s an Avocado 🥑 product. This product makes for great pictures and it’s totally shelf candy. - Scent & Texture - I honestly thought this product was going to smell like Avocados 🥑 but it doesn’t. Kinda let me down but that’s ok. It almost is scent free but it has a very faint fresh scent. The texture is so LUXURIOUS! It’s super thick, like a Balm mixed with a cream. - Effectiveness & Results - I can’t believe how satisfying this Sleeping Mask is to apply! It feels like it just melts into my skin! It doesn’t leave my skin looking and feeling greasy or sticky like other Sleeping Masks do. It isn’t heavy either. It absorbs really fast without leaving any film or residue behind. It moisturizes so well! I apply it before bed, then wake up glowing! My skin looks brighter and lighter. It looks hydrated and healthy. I even like using it as a basic facial moisturizer. It’s light enough for everyday use. At least it is for me. - My Conclusion - I am thoroughly impressed with this Sleeping Mask. It’s super effective and fairy affordable. It is gentle enough for sensitive skin (at least I think so?) I definitely recommend it for any skin type or tone. It would make a great Christmas Gift for all you Hubby’s and Wifeys out there Gift Searching! Thank you for sticking with me on this one! Thank you for reading as well! I hope you all enjoyed this article and this product! Any questions, comments, complaints or suggestions? Let me know in the comments below! UNTIL NEXT TIME LOVELIES.................. 🥑🥑🥑🥑🥑🥑🥑🥑🥑🥑🥑🥑🥑🥑🥑🥑🥑 GLOW RECIPE - Avocado Melt Retinol Sleeping Face Mask
Thank you guys!
Thank you guys!
Yesterday I received my leaderboard prize for being in the top 3 and I got to use it tonight!!!! First I just want to say I am just so thankful 🤗 to all of my followers and supporters for cheering me on. I am crazy overwhelmed (in a good way) with all the love ❤️ I have received since being a part of this community. Not to mention I am so close to 6k Followers and I just can believe it!! I have been such a hermit for a while, I was not even an avid social media user. I decided to start doing little things for my self with skincare and makeup, then one day I stumbled across Cherie and things just changed. I went from just cheering and saving posts that interested me, to my first post, to a large following and actual friends. This was all so unexpected and a such a blessing. I found myself again aside from being a mother and wife. I found self love and began a much needed journey of self care. Also thank you Cherie!! This app has given me a lot of joy. The support you guys give is amazing! Just being on the leaderboard was such an honor and now there are gifts! You guys rock! Thank you again! This oils is so lush! HERBIVORE - Emerald CBD + Adaptogens Deep Moisture Glow Oil I just love the packaging, I don’t know if I will throw the box away!❤️ The glass bottle and beautiful green/blue oil are gorgeous. It has a very Earthy scent to it, but it is not over powering and fades quickly. Also a little goes a long way, I only used like 3 drops before my moisturizer. The feel on my skin reminds my of my Sunday Riley night oil, but not as heavy. My skin felt nice and moisturized with a nice glow. Contains hemp-derived Cannabis sativa seed + adaptogenic herbs to soothe, hydrate, and gives a nice glow. This product is high in moisture making it Perfect for the coming dry months. Contains mushrooms and turmeric to defend skin against the environment and reduce wrinkles. At $48 this could possibly replace my Sunday Riley oil....because that stuff is super expensive!!! I love it but my wallet doesn’t! However this Emerald oil it a great replacement honestly and it’s not as heavy an oil. There is not a huge difference in the heaviness but it is noticeable to me. I also like how the scent fades, the Luna oil does not. Really a wonderful prize! Thank you !🙏🥰 ❤️Cherie Creator
Create A Subtle Cat Eye Using Lash Extensions💕
Create A Subtle Cat Eye Using Lash Extensions💕
This post is dedicated to those of you who don’t want or can’t use a lash strip! If you have a subtle eyeshadow look, a great way to enhance your natural eyeshape is to use individual lash extensions! It’ll give you that your lash but better look and create a charming “atmosphere” around the eye. You don’t have to be a lash artist to do it. All you need is some classic lash glue and individual lashes from a place like LASHIFY - AMPLIFY GOSSAMER LASHES For this eyelook, I created a Demi lash towards the outer corner. A Demi lash is essentially a lash that is about 1/3rd long of a normal strip lash. Starting for the end of the outer corner I used three individual lashes beginning with a 14mm size at the outermost corner. Next would be a 12mm and a finally a 10mm. You can see the difference it makes in the first photo vs the second. In the second photo, I just have mascara, whereas the first photo I have the 3 individual lashes! Tips: 1. Curl and put on your mascara BEFORE you put on the individual lashes. The mascara will provide a sturdy base for the individual lashes to attach to. 2. Use a tweezer to assist with your application and attach the lash to your lash line. DO NOT put it directly on the waterline because this will cause irritation. You do want to be close to it though! 3. I use the lash glue from house of lashes. It’s comfortable and not clumpy. Place the glue on the individual lash like you would normally would on a strip lash. You only need A LITTLE bit of glue. Placing too much will cause difficulty in sticking and it’ll get all over your lashes. Another glue you could use or try is the DUO - DUO Brush-on Adhesive Enjoy your flirty “natural” lashes 💕😄
Eco friendly makeup brand: Alleyoop!
Eco friendly makeup brand: Alleyoop!
Alleyoop is a newer brand to me—they had been on my radar for a little while, and I finally got to try some of their products when they invited me to their content creator program. The whole idea behind Alleyoop is to simplify your routine with staple, multi-use products that are quick and easy to apply and blend. Their philosophy is to streamline your routine, eliminating products that you don’t need or don’t use, which is a very eco friendly idea when most makeup brands pump out product after product, not seeing to give much thought to how wasteful it can be. One of the products they sent me was the alleyoop - Stack the odds multi-use face palette , which comes with a contour, blush, and highlight. The shades are SUPER creamy and easy to blend, and there are three color options available for this palette (the one seen here is Sassy Pants, the lightest option. The other shades look great on deeper skin tones!) I really, really love this palette. These are three staple makeup products that I use every day, all rolled into one. The design of the palette is very innovative and cute, and I love that it removes the need to buy three separate products. I know there are other face palettes with these products rolled into one, but this one is so streamlined and simple, and seriously—the formula is so beautifully creamy and blendable. They have jojoba and sunflower oils to give skin a subtle glow, which I love. I apply these with either my fingers or a brush; either way works fine. I find myself reaching for this palette most mornings. The alleyoop - 11th Hour Eyeshadow Sticks is a very cool idea for a product. Alleyoop reports that 82% of women use only 1-3 shades out of the eyeshadow palettes they own—that’s a TON of waste, of both money and product. Their solution is these cream eyeshadow sticks, which come in five universally flattering shades. These take about ten seconds for me to swipe on my lids and pat all over, resulting in a shimmery wash of color. Alleyoop claims they’re smudge and crease proof for 11 hours, which I’ve shockingly found to be true. Plus, the other end is a sharpener in case you want to use it as an eyeliner! I really love what Alleyoop is doing. Their mission is to make beauty simpler, easier, and less wasteful. They offer a pretty select range of products, which makes me trust that they actually care about their mission of helping the environment. Plus, their orders come packed in dissolvable packing peanuts! Not only are these fun to dissolve in the sink, it gives me further trust in the company. In addition, I like that their prices are accessible: Stack the Odds is $34, which isn’t bad for three products, and 11th Hour is $20. I’d much rather pay $20 for a shadow I know I’ll use than $60+ for a palette with a bunch of shades that will go to waste. All in all, I highly recommend checking out Alleyoop for great products at great prices! #CheriePartner
2020s Biggest Trend: Dermatologist Approved
2020s Biggest Trend: Dermatologist Approved
The biggest trend in 2020 is PERSONLIZRD SERUMS. I tried #Atolla and here are my genuine thoughts (SURPRISE AT THE END OF CAPTION!) Do you ever feel like there are too many skincare products out there and have no idea what you need? Trust me, it’s happened to me too! I have been using #ATOLLA which is a company that formulates serums with a mixture of ingredients to target with your skin needs. Here are some of the benefits: 1) The serum is personalized for your skin. 2) you are able to monitor your skin changes each month with a skin test 3) Your formulation is altered monthly to target your problem areas. 4) It formulates several key ingredients into one serum, rather than buying separate creams. 5) it takes into account the products you are currently using. My initial skin concerns when completing my skin quiz with Atolla was battling dry skin as well as skin hyperpigmentation. They sent me a product with vitamin C complex as well as Alpha Arbutin. Vitamin C acts as my antioxidant against sun damage, evens out my hyperpigmentation, increases collagen, and increases hydration. Combining this with alpha arbutin, which targets the enzyme that produces pigment, only further reduced my hyperpigmentation. Like everything, results did not come overnight, but with consistent use, I was able to really even out my skin pigment and hydrate my skin. 🎉🎉🎉CHERIE SURPRISE 🎉🎉🎉 I've asked Atolla to give my CHERIE APP followers an exclusive code “DRCHRIS” for 25% off! Excited to see what you guys think!! 🙌🙌 Atolla - Custom Serum INGREDIENT BREAKDOWN:⤵️ The vitamin C helps with collagen growth, hyperpigmentation, as well as sun damage. The Alpha arbutin targets primarily hyperpigmentation creating an even skin tone. Depending on your product, you can use it in the morning or night.
