Cherie's Skin Report: Next-Level Skin Analysis & FixesI investigate Cherie’s Skin Report app and share how it can help you pinpoint skin issues—and what to do to fix them!
I’m one of those people who struggles when it comes to skincare. I’ve gone through more phases than Madonna in the quest for flawless skin. I’ve tried everything from natural oils to intimidating-sounding chemicals to help. Still, the bane of my existence—large, unsightly pores—remained stubbornly present. Dr. Google and guesswork didn’t seem to be working for me. I started to explore other options to understand my skin better. Knowledge is power, right? Cherie’s Skin Report cropped up when I started browsing for an affordable (read: free) way to learn to fix my complexion crisis. All you have to do is download it and snap a selfie. The caveat is that the app demands an honest photo: no ring light, sexy angles, and no makeup. I was both delighted and disheartened with the results. The upside is that Cherie’s Skin Report delivered the promised report of my skin including photos highlighting specific troubles. The downside is that it confirmed what I already knew—my pores were definitely visible. A handy map with dots pointed out where my pores were largest. I wasn’t particularly overjoyed to face the bitter truth about my pesky pores, but I was impressed that the app picked up my specific problem areas. The report will show you what’s not ideal with your skin on a sliding scale for each feature. You’ll also see how you fare in terms of acne, wrinkles, and dark spots. If you’re finicky like me, you’ll appreciate that it’s not a generic scale—the analysis is refreshingly precise. Dark circles are rated from visible to bright; and wrinkles are either deep, average, or smooth. Now, here’s where Cherie’s Skin Report goes above and beyond. It doesn’t only tell you what’s wrong with your skin—you’ll also find how to improve it. You’ll see suggested ingredients, treatment plans, and products suitable for your skin woes. That was a huge relief because my own detective work where it concerned my skin had brought me less-than-stellar results. I didn’t have to put on my dermatologist hat and start doing research to figure out what to try. As a bonus, you won’t have to start browsing blogs to double check reviews for each product you’re considering. The Cherie app is an entire community of beauty lovers, meaning tapping on a product reveals reviews and techniques for best effects. You’ll get detailed info on each product: the effects, highlights, where to shop, and similar products. As someone with a limited budget but ambitious dreams for my skin, I like that Cherie offers options—and that I don’t have to leave the app to learn about them. The coolest part is that you can update your skin report as many times as you want. To add to that, all your selfies are stored in your personal Skin Journey. That allows me to check how my skin is progressing, and identify patterns—like sudden pimples after my weekend Netflix-and-pizza binge-fest. I have always found it tough to track cause and effect with my skin, so access to my Skin Journey is practical. Cherie also offers you the opportunity to collect with fellow lovelies who share a similar skin type to you. I’m not going to lie; I fell deep into the rabbit hole of gorgeous beauties sharing their regiments, strategies, and reviews. This skin analysis app exceeded my expectations in every respect. It’s basically a friendly (and free) dermatologist in your phone. My advice? This app is totally worth a try to get to know your skin better.

HOLY GRAIL SPF 🌞🌞🌞
Okay guys as I have said before I am guilty of rarely ever wearing sunscreen. I just never liked the feel of it on my skin. I always felt like it made me greasy & clogged my pores. However, once I heard about this product I was very intrigued. NIOD - Survival 30 It actually isn’t sold in the United States for some reason so I had to purchase it on a UK website. (Beauty Bay) It is an antioxidant serum with SPF 30. At first, it appears to be tinted but it’s actually not. On NIOD’s website they state: “The slight tinted appearance is derived from the active technologies including Lutein, Fractionated Melanin and Pycnogenol.” It blends in with your skin so easily & does not leave a white cast like some other SPF products. However this serum literally makes my skin tone soo even & perfect! It also contains silicone so it completely smooths over my pores. AND besides all that great stuff, it’s a mineral sunscreen! So it protects against environmental & lifestyle issues. Like UV rays, blue light, etc. I have never loved a product as much as this one! I literally cannot believe how good my skin looks while using this stuff! For a 30ml bottle, I paid $33 on the Beauty Bay site. For me, that is completely worth it! It comes in this adorable packaging & pretty glass bottle. It also has a pump dispenser & squirts out the perfect amount for a single use! I really can’t recommend this stuff enough guys! It’s wonderful!! @cherie@Cheriebeauty@CheriePick
Clear Hydrated Skin The Clean Way✨
Staying in the trend of clean beauty, I have found an amazing product to add to my everyday routine. Odacité SKINCARE - Blue Aura Cleansing Water This is a cleansing water that is marketed to use in place of your cleanser for a “quick” clean. When looking for a good cleansing water, you want one that is hydrating and gets your face clean. Keep in mind not all cleansing waters are designed to clean makeup (I highly recommend a cleansing balm and cleanser). About This Brand: ✨Vegan ✨Cruelty Free ✨Certified Organic ✨ NO: Fillers | Parabens | Nanoparticles | Petrochemicals | PEG | Synthetic perfumes | Dyes | Phenoxyethanol. This cleansing water is so hydrating and satisfying to use. It smells very fresh and a little goes a long way. What is very important to me is my dry spot aren’t tight or irritated. I have been using this day and night and have seen amazing results acne and skin barrier wise. I included this in my routine after a regular cleanser and before my serums. So essentially, I use this as a “toner”. I do this to clean up anything my cleanse left behind, or the cleanser itself. INGREDIENTS: ✨Tumeric: Amazing for hyperpigmentation and overall skin brightness ✨Holy Basil: I drink the tea and can vouch this is an amazing adaptogen that can overall benefit every aspect of your life. It combats aging and free radical damage. ✨Neem: great anti aging ingredient that helps protects your skin barrier. ✨Aloe Vera Juice: this is great for your skin barrier overall. It hydrated, protects and brightens. I highly recommend this cleansing water and it is on sale for $9 at Boxycharm Pop Up 🥰🥰
Do It All Toner 🍃🍃
I have been loving the brand Truly lately ✨ I recently purchased this: 🍃TRULY - CBD Jelly Toning Solution 🍃 And it’s by far one of my favorite toners. Ingredients: 💚100MG CBD 💚Glycolic Acid 💚Tea Tree Oil 💚Organic Aloe 💚Rose Petal Extract This brand is also: 💚Vegan 💚Cruelty Free 💚Clean I use this every other night and it as tremendously helped my skin barrier and acne. I was really concerned about the glycolic acid irritating or drying my skin but it didn’t at all 🤩 I highly recommend this to combo and oily , acne prone skin. This will be a toner I keep in my night routine. I got it from Ulta (of course) for $24 (I paid $15 after coupons) Do you use CBD products? 🍃
Stay Young Forever? ✨
That’d be great right? Well in taking those steps, I definitely recommend these amazing serums. I was gifted the: Intoxicated Cosmetics: Snake Serum Bee Serum Snail Serum I started using the Snail Serum last night first and wow did I notice a difference. The Snail Serum mainly targets dryness. I used this in place of my usual night time serum and boy did I notice a difference. I N G R E D I E N T S : All Serums contain: ✨Niacinamide Bee Serum: Bee Venom Plant Based Stem Cells Royal Epigen Snake Serum Snake Venom Green & White Tea Extract Peptides Snail Serum Snail Peptide Hyadisine Echinacea Moronga Oil Extract I definitely will try the other serums in my routine as I get used to the Snail Serum but so far my skin is definitely happy. What serum would you like to try?
A Journey of Self 🌹
I figured Black History Month was as good as any opportunity to talk about my self finding. Growing up in a small yet old family, I always had questions about my roots and family history. I also struggled with self conscious doubts about my appearance. Why is my nose this big? Why is my hair this curly? Why am I taller than average? These weighed heavy on my mind growing up because honestly, sticking out sucked. So, I finally dove deep into my family’s origin and decided to do an Ancestry DNA analysis. I immersed myself with every corner of the site. I only got the chance to finish my maternal grandmas side of the family tree, but even that has plenty of gaps. Yet, when I received my DNA results I was stoked. Then I realized, I don’t know much about any of these places. So I dug even deeper. I have a little journal of things I’ve learned and want to know, but this was quite the experience. It was heartbreaking and satisfying at the same time. I highly recommend for every race and background to do this DNA Test. The best part of this was scrolling through photos of the people of the respected countries I was DNA matched to. I swear I saw a girl who looked like me, but everyone else thinks I’m tripping lol. In the end, I’m satisfied with my results and findings. Relatively speaking, this way of self discovery has been the most effective.
