I’m 22 and have had acne since I was a young teen. However my acne has changed and is more hormonal, and I have a ton more blackheads and my pores are huge! I think my skin is combination/oily, and some products make my skin feel super dry and flakey so maybe sensitive? Does anyone have any suggestions? I’m also a broke college student so I can’t afford anything really expensive right now. And furthermore, I’m bad with routines and only wash my face at night because I’m not awake/together enough in the mornings to follow a routine.
i used a vitamin c based face mask today (brother ordered me a big pack of face masks off amazon, no brand?) and then once i got in the shower i washed my face with the tarte cleanser i’ve been raving about forever #tarte - SEA Deep Dive Cleansing Gel[products]#[FiveStars] and when my skin feels slick, i use a cotton pad with some micellar water on it to clear up my t-zone. any suggestions for minimising my pores? i don’t get much acne, and my only problems are oily t zone and enlarged pores (some blackheads on my nose as well)
So this is my skin about 3 weeks in to the cera ve routine and I don’t have a before but it almost looks worse... i thought i would show what my skin actually looked like so maybe people could give me more tips! Anything helps:))
Hello Beauties! My name is Tae, I’m trying to become one of the active users on the Cherie platform! And I need all the skin care advice and beauty blogging advice I can get it My skin type is dry!

~ Cue upbeat adventurous music for my decision to take care of my skin ~ Everyone, I’m kinda excited! So I need help finding good products for a new skincare routine. I’ve always loved trying natural products, but the improvement wasn’t there since I didn’t know what to look for. Knowing your skin type is sooo useful! I’m still lost with all of the options that are in front of me tho. Any suggestion? Right now I am using my fiancé’s products and my skin looks happy; I think it likes the moisturizer. The big three bad guys are not taking care of tho; The Pores, The Blackheads & The Dark Circles! If you ever feel inclined to share tips and advice, I am all ears! Thanks ~*
It’s been a process, but my skin is finally clearing up, now on to the rest of it. No matter what I do I can’t seem to get my pores under control!!
Just a little bit of background information, I’m a 15 year old teenage girl. I generally get acne on my upper lip and have acne scars there. I also have tiny little bumps on my forehead which aren’t going away and my upper lip and chin area is darker than the rest of my face but it’s not showing up on the photo. I also have eyebags and dark circles that never seem to go away. Are there any products you guys could recommend that may be good for my skin or products that have helped you helped you? Any advice or products would be very much appreciated!

Cosrx cotton rounds vs. Shiseido facial cotton🤍
☁️I ditched drugstore cotton pads a long time ago, I could never consistently find ones that didn’t flake & shred fibers onto my face. I have sensitive eyes & I absolutely hate getting anything stuck in there, I’m sure we all do. I don’t wear makeup much anymore, but having cotton pads that don’t shed or fall apart is so crucial for removing eye makeup! I mostly use cotton pads for my toning step. A good cotton pad will be absorbent, but not too much to be able to dispense your products across your face. 💦Pro Tip: If your cotton pads still look dirty or has traces of makeup after toning, this means your cleansing routine isn’t cutting it. Toning is not meant to further clean your skin after cleansing. Rather, toner meant to help rebalance skin & prepare it for your following hydration/moisture routine. 🚰 Toner is an important for me because I’m not super happy with my tap water quality. If I wouldn’t drink, I’m not thrilled about washing my face with it, but I’m not bougie enough to wash with Évian®😭 SHISEIDO - Facial Cotton $12/165 pads Description from Shiseido: This exclusive Facial Cotton is 100% natural and uniquely manufactured for a consistent soft, smooth texture. Allows for maximum absorption and assists in the application of Shiseido softeners. 165 sheets per pack. My review: I’ve been using these & loving them for years. It seemed like such a splurge to me when I first switched, but such an upgrade, I never looked back. They’re about 7 cents each, so it’s honestly not that bad if you’re sick of buying random cotton pads at Target/Walmart. (I checked prices a few mainstream brands like Equate & Q-Tips, which range from about 2-5 cents per) These are super soft! It doesn’t soak up too much product even though they’re plush, it gives it right back to, making toner an effective & enjoyable experience. I love they have no type of seam or edge, so there’s nothing but soft, fluffy texture☁️ COSRX - Pure 100% Cotton Rounds $12/80 pads Description from Cosrx: Soft, round cotton pad made of wavy patterned 100% cotton to mildly wipe skin without irritation. My review: Every once in a while I forget to add my usual Shiseido facial cotton to a Sephora order, so I decided to try something new in a Soko Glam order. These are double sided, one side is textured, one smooth. Technically these are twice as expensive per pad as Shiseido. Some of you may like the textured side for removing makeup or applying certain products, but I personally didn’t find it as an added plus. It’s not rough, but the smooth side isn’t as soft as Shiseido. They perform fine, but overall I like the softer, plush texture of Shiseido better. Cosrx has little seam edges I don’t care for. Results: Both held up equally well in all my tests. Swipe through the photos. I tried to see how much roughing up they could take & if they would flake or fall apart-they didn’t. Cosrx pads are slightly stronger, but both broke eventually💧
DIY PUMPKIN ENZYME MASK- EXFOLIATE & GLOW 🎃
You can make so many masks with pumpkin purée that are completely customizable to your skin care needs. I chose this specific mask for its exfoliating and nourishing properties. When done with the mask your skin will be hydrated and glowing. With continued use, dark spots will improve. Benefits: Pumpkin- “rich in enzymes, beta-carotene, amino acids, and antioxidants to fight the visible signs of aging” Honey- nourishes and improves blemished skin Glycolic acid- improves skins exfoliation rate providing an even skin tone and texture What you’ll need: 2 tbs pure pumpkin purée 1 tbs honey Few drops of a glycolic acid ( I used which has glycolic in it) To make: Put all ingredients in a dish and mix. Apply with a mask brush or clean hands. I wait until the mask dries up a bit (around 30 minutes) then wash off. 🎃This mask has a solid consistency. If you work quick it will not slide around the face. It smells just like pumpkin and if you want you could even add in some essential oils. 🎃I have combination, sensitive skin and have not noticed any sensitivities with this mask. I would recommend to those who are looking to lightly exfoliate and improve their skins texture. Or if you love pumpkin, you will love this mask! #CheriePartner
My longtime obsession with long nails //PICS!🔪
Yup, I’m that girl clickin & clackin on her phone! Sorrrry💁🏻♀️ 💅🏽💅🏿💅🏼💅🏾💅🏻 I’ve been obsessed with crazy long nails since i was a little kid. I got my first set of acrylics probably sophomore year of high school. I was pretty tomboy in high school even though I wore a lot of makeup, they were pretty annoying at first & the dance companies I was in banned fake nails for shows & even practice. I would get sets occasionally in college, but went to art school & they definitely get in the way with certain processes. ♿️ I got severely injured in 2014, when I was 26, & the cuticle biting habit I’ve always had was sooo bad because I literally had nothing to do all day. I was working as a server in California at the time, so I was definitely not allowed to have fake nails or nail polish of any kind. I ended up returning to acrylics full time after I got injured & I could finally stop biting my cuticles! The nails just look so pretty, I felt less eager to mess with them & the nails are thicker than a natural nail so you can’t pick at your skin (or pop pimples with this length! Plus!) 💔 A combination of moving away from my favorite nail tech, ( TONY I LOVE YOU & OH HOW MISS YOU SO! ) & obviously quarantine, forced me to abandon my long fake nails for now. The damage: Getting full acrylic sets & fills pretty much non-stop for almost 6 years, my real nails were not cute, thin & brittle. I was so lucky to have a very talented & meticulous technician for the last 2 of those years. I honestly never had any of the nasty issues some people can face with acrylics. What are acrylics? Acrylic nails are created by first applying a plastic nail extension with glue to part of your nail to add length. Then a powder & liquid acrylic monomer are combined into a sort of “blob of dough” & shaped onto your nails with a brush & air dried. Next they will be further shaped & smoothed with manual & electric files. A GOOD tech will take about 2 hours, not less. I always chose gel polish that’s cured with a UV light on top of my acrylics, but you can also just do regular nail polish. I worked up to this length- they make me feel like myself, know what I mean? But I wouldn’t recommend starting off long if you aren’t used to it. Your natural nails grow out & then in 2-3 weeks you can get what’s called a “fill”, where your polish is removed & a small amount of the monomer is applied to the base of your nail bed & blended into what you already have on your nail. Quarantine: Had my last real set in February... I ordered long press-ons a few times, which I really loved, but they’re just not the same strength-wise. I was actually kinda rough on my nails & rarely broke them. At least when press-ons pop off, you can just glue it back on instead of rushing to the salon! I’ve had fun trying ones with gems & charms! In the past I stuck to solid colors & glitter with acrylics due to the cost & sitting time. IMO the best press-ons are from black owned business, Hawt Nailz!

☀️Sience says Tinted Sunscreens do it best☀️
Hello beautiful skin + beauty lovers 😊 I love spfs because they are so important to the health of our skin and our whole body☀️ I was excited to try the FIRST AID BEAUTY - Weightless Liquid Mineral SPF 30 because it’s a tinted sunscreen. Regular sunscreen blocks UV rays so that’s still awesome, But visible light is not blocked in this capacity. Visible light has been proven to cause damage to skin just like UV rays. non-tinted sunscreens are formulated to be invisible on skin, and therefore cannot block visible light. Tinted sunscreens are awesome because the added color base in the product is beneficial to blocking visible light because the color remains on your skin, creating yet another layer of protection between your beautiful skin and the sun. Here’s how it works, according to Neera Nathan MD and Dieter Manstein MD for Harvard Publising, “Tinted sunscreens combine broad-spectrum mineral UV filters, like zinc oxide and titanium dioxide, with added pigments — pigmentary titanium dioxides and iron oxides — that create the visible, skin-tone color that can reflect away visible light. The colored base of tinted sunscreens is created by mixing different amounts of black, red, and yellow iron oxides with pigmentary titanium dioxide, resulting in a tinted sunscreen that can be matched to any skin tone.” Boom! That’s how it’s done. Who wouldn’t want that extra protection without white cast?! How does FIRST AID BEAUTY - Weightless Liquid Mineral SPF 30 perform? The only issue I have with this is when rubbing it in, it feels grainy and gritty like sand or something. It disappears once all the way rubbed in, but it kind of weirded me out 😛 I was reading a bunch of reviews and some people claimed to feel this as well. I think mine might have been old or something. It is not bothersome enough for me to not want to try it again. I will still use & probably repurchase this. The finish on this product is amazing. I really like it for my combination skin. Once soaked into the skin, this sunscreen became invisible and left a soft sheen/dewiness on my pale skin. It made my skin really soft, too. I would also like to point out there for me the sunscreen didn’t really do much in terms of blurring imperfections on my face. I honestly couldn’t really tell that I had anything on after it was all the way rubbed in, except for a light glow it gave my skin. So if you’re looking for a tinted sunscreen with more coverage I would probably recommend looking at a different product. I also like the ingredients in this, squalane being one of the first few ingredients, working to moisturize and nourish my skin. Do you guys like tinted sunscreen? What kinds do you wear?
