Download the app today to be a part of #BeautyWithoutBarriers and show the world what beauty means to you!I had always had pretty clear, unproblematic skin for most of my high school and college life. In my last year of college something drastically changed, and my skin was out of control. I had acne on almost every inch of my face with no explanation or guidance. I couldn’t help but feel that my skin betrayed me and for months I scrambled looking for miracle products to cure all of my skin issues and restore my skin to its former glory. I quickly realized after a few months of trying a new product, seeing minor results and then having my skin revert back that one product wasn’t going to cure all of my problems. I had to embark on a skincare journey, something I knew very little about. Although I managed to find a routine that helped to control my acne after months of intense searching, the havoc it wreaked on my skin was still apparent. The hyperpigmentation, dark marks and obscenely large pores on my skin were a reminder of the struggles I had endured on my journey. I thought I understood my skin concerns and how I should be addressing them. Unsurprisingly, the Cherie app showed me that was not the case. Cherie is a free online app that I had stumbled upon not too long ago and I decided to give it a try. After using the app briefly, I discovered there was a “skin report” feature that could help me identify which parts of my skin needed a little extra attention. I wasn’t too sure about how to use the feature, but it was fairly simple. Scan a raw selfie (no makeup) and let the app analyze your skin. In just a few moments I had a detailed report on my skin and its health. This selfie is stored in your ‘skin journey’ and you can keep track of how your skin develops as you try new products by adding a new selfie every day, every other day or even once a week…whatever works best for you. When I first looked at my results, I was definitely surprised. I never thought my pores were so large. This picture only confirmed that although my skin is in decent shape right now, there is still definitely work to be done. One of the best things about the report is it allows you to look at each issue separately and see where your problem areas are. As you can see, the majority of my issue falls within the t-zone area which can be prone to oiliness. The report not only identifies problem areas but gives suggestions on how to address those issues and recommends products that may work for my skin. This feature is really what sets Cherie apart from any other platform. The curated list of products is listed under each skin issue so you can easily browse and select any products that pique your interest. You can also read real user reviews all on the same platform. There are so many skincare products on the market that it would be impossible to browse through them all, but with Cherie’s skin report you have access to a number of trusted skincare products that can truly transform your skin. I simply went to my most concerning skin issue which happens to be my large pores and oilier skin and looked through the suggestions. Cherie provides access to a public board where users can offer and ask for advice on their specific issues and get feedback from real people. They also provide a list of products ranging in price that would help take care of my skin. Overall, the Cherie skin report gives you a clear idea of how your skin is doing and how you can help it improve. There’s no second guessing if a product will work for you or not – with Cherie you can be confident in your skincare choices.

Cherie's Skin Report
Know your skin better in a selfie
Wednesday Wellness 🙏🏾
This past week has been rather hard and long for me. I ultimately decided to get back on track with my wellness plan. My main wellness goal for 2021, is to indulge in myself more. I definitely am a firm believe in “as within, so without”. I started my day with: #Four Sigmatic - Mushroom Elixir Mix with Chaga[products]#[FiveStars] I have been getting back into adaptogen and herbal medicine. What we put into our bodies is just as important as what goes on the outside. Adaptogens are apart of ancient medicinal traditions traced all over the world. I also drink Tulsi “Holy Basil” Tea. If you need a pick me up or emotional boost I highly recommend! SUNDAY RILEY - U.F.O. Ultra-Clarifying Face Oil is my treatment of choice I used during the day. Do not be afraid to use salicylic acid during the day. I applied plenty of sunscreen afterwards as well! This is a GODSEND for clearing up acne and acne scarring. It’s by far the best acne treatment I’ve tried and its mostly due to the immediate results I get. This is a dry oil, so it should be used before a heavy moisturizer or sunscreen. THE BODY SHOP - Spa of the World Thai Makrut Lime Firming Oil is a staple in my night time routine. When I want to relax and really unwind I use a body roller with this oil. It smells like a fresh key lime pie and it’s so hydrating. This is great for firming, especially when paired with a body tool. What do you do for wellness?
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
Double Your Lash Length With Sky High Mascara!
I bought this mascara after seeing a post about it on Facebook. I love trying out new mascaras but rarely do I find one that I will use regularly like my beloved tarte - Maneater Mascara However this stuff is good. MAYBELLINE - Lash Sensational Sky High Waterproof Mascara It gave my lashes so much volume & length they literally doubled in size! My lashes are already pretty long to begin with but this made them look amazing. The photo is after applying only one coat so I can only imagine how good they will look after two or three coats! It also didn’t clump up my lashes at all. I applied it really quickly & lazily too because I was in a rush to get ready & I was still amazed! I honestly think this is going to be my new daily mascara. It is waterproof but not the annoying kind that leaves your eyes completely black when you go to take it off. It came off really easily with my POND'S - Facial Moisturizers Dry Skin Cream which is what I’ve always used to remove my eye makeup, since I was a kid! @cherie@Cheriebeauty@CheriePick
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.
Clear skin the gentle way?
Thank you @cheriefor this amazing gift 🤩 “buh-koo-chee-all” HERBIVORE - Bakuchiol Anti-Aging Serum I’ve already become a diehard Herbivore lover. So to receive this beauty was super exciting. When I started my acne journey on Cherie I was (and still am) a Differin Acne Gel stan. This was my choice of retinol and I wanted it strong to treat acne and boost my cellular turnover. Now that my acne is currently under control and it’s getting hot again, I definitely want something smooth and gentle. Bakuchiol is a gentler alternative to the very popular ingredient retinol. So essentially you’ll get overall youthful results for your skin. I haven’t tested this on my acne theory yet, but overall my face has been smooth and irritation free. This serum does not have a smell which I love for products of this caliber. I also love that it’s light and not drying at all. I use this at night and since i have a tolerance to retinol I use it every night. I haven’t been using it long enough to see results (about 12 weeks) but I definitely can’t wait to finish this. Have you tried Bakuchiol?
