❤️ Hi creators, Cherie has always been an engaging and loving community and we really love seeing everyone share their beauty story and honest thoughts. We know it can be challenging to create new content and think of post topics, which is why we wanted to share some useful tips on getting started! We will be introducing you to an example of a popular topic in our community and we hope that you find it helpful! One of the topics most loved by our community members is "Favorite Products". For example, you can show us your favorite skincare item, such as your moisturizer! Try to describe your product from the following perspectives:🍒 Your personal information-- what is your skin type, age, specific skin concerns? Why did you choose this product? 🍒 Product information-- price, texture, smell, ingredients, packaging, use 🍒Feelings-- your rating, why you loved it (or didn't), if you would repurchase, how it helped address your specific skin concerns! Here are some good examples:
the Moisturizing Cream For Normal To Dry Skin - CeraVe is the perfect moisturizer for those with sensitive skin. i have sensitive skin & eczema-prone skin and this stuff saves me in the dry winter months. the moisturizer is packed with ceramides, hyaluronic acid & is fragrance-free and gentle on the skin. this moisturizer is moderately thick & is a watery cream. this is the perfect night time moisturizer for me and I love using this on nights where my skin is feeling sensitive or if I’ve used acids in my routine and my skin needs a little extra hydration. I’ve been using this consistently (at least 4x per week) for the past 5 months. I’m a huge fan of this product because it hydrates my skin without irritating it. I am a huge fan of all CeraVe products I’ve tried. This retails for around $18 and I think it is so worth the price. You get so much product and it is such a gentle and reliable moisturizer. I think anyone with sensitive skin should try this moisturizer out! 5/5 stars ⭐️Here, @theskincaregreenhouse shares her CeraVe moisturizing cream with us! She provides personal information about her skin type and also describes the ingredients in the product, such as ceramides and hyaluronic acid.
Ultra Facial Cream - Kiehl's this is definitely one of my fav moisturisers for many reasons !!! this is such an amazing moisturiser for the summer ! it’s super super light weight, not too thick and leaves your face GLOWING ! it really does hydrate your face and a great thing about this is that a little really does go a long way, especially since it’s not really on the cheaper side. it doesn’t leave your skin looking pasty white like a few moisturisers I have tried do and the finish is matte but looking dewy. it doesn’t dry on your skin super quick but it’s so light weight that you don’t even feel like you’re wearing any ! however, I don’t use this too much in the winter as my skin needs a moisturiser a little more thick to really give me that hydration ! price: 50ml for $32This is another great example from @christyr who explains in-depth why she loves her Kiehl's moisturizer!In these posts, the detailed information helps others in our community to learn more about the product and understand how it can fit into their specific skincare needs! We would love to see what your favorite moisturizer is! Thank you for being a part of the Cherie community and helping us all learn from one another. Happy posting 🎉!
THIS DERMATOLOGISTS FAVORITE NEW CLEANSER
Cleansers are an essential step in everyone’s skincare routine, but it can be difficult to find the right one for your skin. The new Aveeno Calm + Restore nourishing oat cleanser has been my new go-to daily cleanser and I love it. ❤️🙌 Aveeno has always been a brand to create formulations that target dry and sensitive skin and this cleanser is no different. This cleanser is great for people all skin types but would likely benefit dry or combination skin most. The incorporated oat complex helps restore build the skin’s moisture barrier and soothe itchy skin. There is no stripping effect with this cleanser, which is something too always look for with your cleanser. Other pros about this product are its fragrance free (limiting any irritant reactions) as well as great pricing. On amazon, you can find a bottle for under $10.‼️‼️ TRUTH: If you are trying to fight acne or blackheads I recommend against this cleanser and try finding something with salicylic acid. Have you tried the new Aveeno cleanser? Let me know your thoughts in the comments! ⤵️

I'm very thankful for the beauty on the inside. This has been a tough year for me as an ICU nurse fighting covid.

The great patient care, teamwork and uplifting spirits have keep us going everyday. Even though I wish covid 🦠🦠🦠 never ever happened it brought me to @cherie!!! I was looking for a solution to the awful Maskne that I acquired wearing a mask 12-16 hours at a time. In my journey to clear my skin I have found this platform to help me escape from this covid nightmare all awhile learning more and upgrading my skincare routine. What are you thankful for?? What are your beauty goals?? #cheriecreator
Retinol use for beginners from an Esthetician!
If you’re ever wondering how to start using retinol, this is for you! I want to start off by saying that if you’re interested in using retinol you must wear sunscreen daily. If you know you’re never going to wear it PLEASE do not use retinol. With that being said, let’s start off by explaining what retinol is and what it does for you! Retinol is Vitamin A! There are many types of retinol, like retinoids, retinol esters, etc. These are all derivatives of Vitamin A, and are more gentle and less potent versions of pure retinol. Retinol helps speed up our cell turn over rate in our skin. What that means, is that it will help you shed your dead skin cells faster to reveal new skin that’s brighter, smoother and healthier! As we get older, our “cell turnover rate” (CTR) slows down. So we use products like retinol to keep speeding it up so we can stay younger longer! Most people know retinol for treating fine lines and wrinkles, but it’s actually incredible for treating acne and acne scars! This is what I personally use it for. Retinol is strong and acts as an exfoliant so you must be careful with what products you’re using along with it in your regimen. Don’t layer or mix Vit C and retinol as they don’t like each other! Retinol should ONLY be applied at nighttime never in the morning. It makes you photosensitive which is a term to describe sensitivity to the sun. Most people experience some purging in acne, peeling/dryness, redness/irritation, and burning sensations when using a high dose of retinol without buffering it properly. If you use my buffering method properly you will not experience that at all! Now that you understand what you’re putting on your skin, I will explain how to use it! You shouldn’t start retinol by just applying it straight onto your skin without ever using it before. Your skin has to adjust to this new product and should be incorporated gently and slowly. It takes a month for your skin to adjust. You want to buffer your retinol with a gentle moisturizer. Nothing with actives like exfoliants (AHAs or BHAs)! Retinol goes after serums and before moisturizer in your routine! Week 1: use your retinol maximum 2x weekly. Start with one pea size amount of retinol and buffer it with 3 parts of moisturizer! Mix & apply to your skin! Week 2: use your retinol maximum 3x weekly. You’re going to do equal parts retinol and moisturizer. 2 parts retinol and 2 parts moisturizer. Mix & apply to your skin! Week 3: use your retinol maximum 3x weekly. Use 3 parts retinol (equal to a pea size) and 1 part moisturizer. Mix & apply to your skin! Week 4: use your retinol maximum 4x weekly. Apply a pea size amount of retinol directly onto your skin! Then apply your moisturizer directly on top of the retinol! If your skin cant handle retinol alone then stick to the buffering method forever! It will be just as effective as applying it alone! This method will minimize purging and keep your barrier healthy! Hope this helped! ❤️COSRX - Propolis Light Cream
Kylie x Grinch - Worth the Hype?
Review time!!! I just received the entire Kylie Cosmetics Grinch Collection in the mail this week & I want to break down each product and tell you what I loved and didn’t love. Palette: I’m not one that reaches for tons of colour usually but all the greens in this palette are gorgeous! There’s a mix of matte and shimmer shades, and as usual, the shadows blend like a dream! The good thing about this palette is that there are still some neutral shades rather than just greens. I definitely appreciate the mixture of shades. Shadow Sticks: The Kylie shadow sticks are probably one of my favourite products they have ever released. They are so extremely pigmented, and so easy to apply. They’re basically fool proof, and they set as a shadow. If you haven’t tried them out, I highly suggest you do! In this collection we have a super pretty light shimmery green, light gold, and two rosy toned shadow sticks. Shimmer Eye Glazes: This product is insane. They are a super intensely pigmented eyeshadow that leaves the lids looking wet & dripping in glitter! One swipe of these on the lid is literally all you need for that intense shimmer. If you’re someone who loves super shimmery eyeshadow, I recommend giving the Kylie Cosmetics Shimmer Eye Glazes a try. This collection came with 2 shades: a minty turquoise green and a gold - & I’m obsessed and so happy to be adding these to my collection!! Olive Kyliner: My go to liquid liner is the black Kyliner, so i wasn’t surprised when i loved the easy application and long wearing quality of this olive Kyliner! The liner applies a lighter olive green and dries down to a deeper olive shade. It’s definitely not something I’d reach for everyday, although it’s definitely cute for the holidays or even for a pop of colour to a neutral eye! Blush: I am a huge fan of the Kylie Cosmetics Blushes as opposed to the other blushes I’ve tried from the brand this one had some shimmer in it! It’s quite similar to the NARS “orgasm” blush but with a stronger pink hue. I love the shimmer in it, it adds a pretty glow to the cheeks, perfect for the holidays.. or any day really :P Highlight: Def on theme, but probably my least favourite product in of the collection :( Don’t get me wrong, it’s super blinding and glowy. Although, once I applied to my face it showed off as very green. Personally I don’t want a green glow on my face! But hey, if that’s your vibe that’s cool! Definitely not a highlight I’d reach for everyday. Lip Kit: Obsessed. This red is EVERYTHING! This Lip Kit is one of the best reds I have ever tried. It has a matte finish and is extremely long wearing. I know it’s sold out but a similar shade would be “BOSS” by Kylie. Lipsticks: These shades are gorg for the holidays and I love the shade range! Long wearing & comfortable on the lips. High Glosses: Kylies high glosses are high shine, but very sticky! So if you’re not a fan of sticky glosses you won’t love these. These shades are perf for the holidays and everyday!
