This solution will clear your acne in your sleep
We’ve all been there. That oh-so-waited event is coming up, you’ve got your date ready and a rocking outfit to match your attitude. So, the night before you’re probably masking or getting your skincare game on, and then it happens. A big, red pimple right in the middle of your face is staring back at you in the mirror, blankly. You start panicking and hoping this thing doesn’t turn into a big yellow monster overnight or that maybe your foundation will do its magic, and everything will be all right. Sad to say, this almost never happens.
But worry not, my friends, given that blemishes are dealt by pretty much everyone at least once in their lifetime, beauty brands have found a solution that actually works. You may have heard about pimple patches, but you probably think they’re too good to be true; maybe you tried some once and got totally disappointed. Or maybe, you’ve never heard of them. No matter the case, we got you. As the name states, this pimple patches are used directly in the skin to cover the zit, most like a bandage for a small cut. As they are made of hydrocolloid –a soft plastic material used to heal wounds– it absorbs fluid from the pimple and helps it heal quickly by creating a kind of bubble that seals everything in. Just slap one right on the zit at night and you’ll wake up all cleared up.
Now it’s important to say that this is NOT a long-term solution for your acne. It will definitely do the job as a last-minute resource but not as a treatment. Remember to visit your dermatologist!
And now for the fun stuff, here’s our list of brands that know how to get the job done:
When it comes to beauty, you can’t go wrong with a Korean brand. Especially not CosRX. This K-Beauty brand launched their first product in 2015, creating a rave of love from customers all around the world. Which is why their Acne Pimple Master Patch is one of the most beloved products. Made to fit any zit size, these waterproof patches work hard overnight to deliver a fresh pimple-free face in the morning.
Born from the personal struggles with acne from its founder, this San Francisco based beauty brand has one the best pimple patches out there. Through their exclusive partnership with Sephora, Peace Out hit the shelves on 2017. Today, their Acne Healing Dots are the most raved about product for treating sudden pimples. What makes them different is the use of active ingredients like Salicylic Acid to unclog pores, Aloe Vera to soothe and Vitamin A to clear the skin.
PEACE OUTAcne Healing Dots
We weren’t kidding when we said Korean brands always bring their A-game. Famous for their innovative formulas, remarkable packaging designs and fun face masks, Dr. Jart+ is among the most notorious K-Beauty brands in the US. When it comes to pimples, their Focuspot Blemish Micro Tip Patches take the win. Containing Vitamin B3, Peptides and Hyaluronic Acid, this combo helps clear the excess sebum and make zits vanish by replicating a micro-needling procedure without the painful needles.
A brand inspired by the effects of stress in the skin, and of course, the natural properties of Iceland’s Glacial Water that contains specific minerals charged with antioxidants and hydrants for skin restoration. This powerful “Icelandic Complex” is found throughout their catalog of products, including their Blemish Dots. Salicylic Acid, Tea-tree oil and Volcanic Ash complement the mix to make this pimple patches control inflammation and bacteria spread, renovating skin for that healthy glow.

Dry Shampoo white residue? Don’t worry I got you
I love a dry shampoo with a lot of powder because it is what is absorbing the oil to make your hair look less greasy. However, sometimes there is a little white powder residue that I can’t seem to rub into my dark hair. Simple solution 💡!! Shine spray! It makes it all blend away! Using: KLORANE - Detox Dry Shampoo With Organic Aquatic Mint REDKEN - Shine Flash 02 Shine Spray
Sensitive Skin Game changer ❄️
What is the product? Avène - Thermal Spring Water Spray How does it work? Thermal Water works by soothing the skin and calming any irritation What are the notable ingredients? Mineral Spring Water What is the price? $18.50CAD Where can you purchase? Shoppers Drug Mart, Rexall Pharmacy and online How long have I been using it for? I’ve been using thermal water for over two years, I started off using this product on my body and now still use it on my face What is my experience ? My experience with thermal water has been good, I suffer from eczema on both my body and face. It was hard finding products that wouldn’t irritate or cause a flare up. When that happened this product saved my skin and soothed it. At first I was not exactly sure how water would help my skin, but after doing research thermal waters are meant to have healing properties for the body and skin. What are my thoughts? This product is nothing short of amazing, you are able to use it for multiple areas and it lasts so long. The mist is super fine which makes it perfect for spraying on large or small spots, and pressing into the skin similar to how you apply a toner. Would I recommend to a friend? I would absolutely recommend this product to a friend or family or even someone looking to help soothe their skin but who doesn’t want to break the bank!! My overall rating? 5/5 Would I repurchase? I have and will continue to repurchase this product until I find something that exceeds how amazing this is! #CheriePartner
A Year in review!
This year has definitely been a wild ride. I’ve learned so much more about my hair and skin in this last year than I ever thought I would or needed to know! All the way from using witch hazel and not paying attention to my curl pattern, to staying completely fragrance free with face products and staying away from harsh toners and paying attention to what my hair was trying to do! Using this app has really opened doors for me that I wouldn’t thought possible for my beauty process! I can’t wait to see what more years bring me, and us! Thank you @cherie!
✨Cute Bun Hairstyle✨
Hi Guys!!! I recently saw this scrolling on Pinterest and I wanted to recreate it! It’s SO easy and took about 5 minutes total!! It looks so fancy yet it’s so simple! I have medium to thin hair but this can work on pretty much all hair types! (: (tip: spray texture spray beforehand) this helps it stay in better!)☺️ HOW TO: -I like to pull my bangs out first (: - you’re going to section it as if you’re doing a half up half down hairstyle -then you’re going to start twisting that part of your hair -I twist it around like I’m doing a ballerina bun😅 -then I secure it with a hair tie ❤️ -you can leave like that! Or I like to pull it out a little so it’s more loose!✨😊
