Raise your hand if you've been looking at throwback travel pictures a little bit more than usual this summer. Raise your hand if you're planning trips to literally everywhere in the world just to feel the rush again. Is that last one too dramatic? Oh well, the point is I MISS TRAVELLING. I'm happy to pause jetsetting for the sake of stopping this pandemic, but it doesn't mean we still can't miss the things that have brought us joy! Some things that really remind me of my travels are pictures, food, and scents. While reminiscing on old photos and ordering takeout that reminds me of my favorite trips always bring me a surge of joy, there's something about particular scents that REALLY transport me to other places of the world. I know I'm not alone on this, because scent has actually been proven to have the most powerful link, out of all the senses, to memory and emotion. So, my summer 2020 solution to not traveling? Gorgeously scented body wash and moisture duos that seriously make you feel like you're thousands of miles away. Jordan Samuel Skin's Italian Collection Body Scrub & Body OilJordan Samuel Skin's Olio per Il Corpo Body Oil and Granita di Cafe Body Scrub is instantly transportive in the name alone. Let's start with the body scrub—this coffee scrub is the most delectable body scrub I have EVER tried. While I use it, I can't help but sniff the jar the entire time I'm exfoliating. The coffee scent is wrapped in a sweetness that makes me literally want to eat this scrub. The minute I open the jar, I'm reminded of my solo trip to Florence, sipping a little espresso in front of my hotel, admiring the buildings. This scrub is highly moisturizing, and the only downside it has is that the formula is thick and struggles to wash off, so I'm usually left with a film of what feels like body butter. Luckily, I can just rub that into my skin!
JORDAN SAMUEL skinGranita di Caffè Body ScrubThen there is the body oil which has a crisp citrus scent and instantly brings me to the hillsides of Cinque Terre drinking limoncello by the water. Wow, this scent is gorgeous! Plus the oil is based in olive and grape seed, making this body oil ultra-nourishing.
JORDAN SAMUEL skinOlio per Il Corpo Body OilSol de Janeiro's Brazilian Bum Bum Shower Gel & CreamA fan favorite, Sol de Janeiro's signature CHEIROSA '62 scent is recognized by almost any beauty lover. It's so popular that the brand even sells a candle for this scent! This warm, comforting scent has hints of caramel and pistachio, and when I put it on, I'm transported to one of my favorite trips to Turks & Caicos. This scent just screams sun-on-skin and sand-in-toes, but for me personally, I first used this duo while vacationing in Turks, making this olfactory experience THAT much more potent.
SOL de JaneiroBrazilian 4 Play Moisturizing Shower Cream-GelThe products themselves in this duo also make your skin infamously soft. So soft you could be a cloud. The wash has a thick texture that feels like it's still cleansing your skin while leaving it nice and supple. And the cream??? Do I need to say anything? You've probably tried it. But if you haven't WHEWWW the way it absorbs into your skin leaving a light sheen and has you smelling like a whole snack? 10/10!
SOL de JaneiroBrazilian Bum Bum CreamSkylar's Meadow Body Bundle If you're a fan of clean beauty, consider Skylar for all your scent needs. This clean perfume brand has made a lot of allergy-prone people, like myself, rejoice with their hypoallergenic perfumes that don't compromise quality or scent. While perfume is Skylar's main attraction, you can find beautifully scented body washes, lotions, and even hand sanitizers! I love their Meadow shower gel and lotion for it's rose-y scent that takes me back to Morocco. While this floral scent is named after a meadow, it reminds me of perusing a souk, entering an apothecary, and finding shelves filled with variations of beauty products centered around rosewater.

It contains their five best sellers for all skin types✨” @madihomewood “💔I’m pretty bummed about this eye cream tbh, I was so stoked about the brand (and should mention that I have been liking some of the other products so far) but this one really was a miss for me.”
Mermaid Polish🧜♀️ Same Brand Dupe?
Sally Hansen - Color Therapy Nail Polish Sally Hansen - Insta-Dri X Jelly Belly Nail Polish Similarities: - Both are from Sally Hansen which is famous for their polishes and nail products - Both have two-color tones - Both have blue base Differences - Sally Hansen Salon Manicure has 14.7ml (0.5 oz) comparing to Sally Hansen insta-dry Matte 9.17 ml (0.3 oz) - Salon Manicure is $15 CAD vs Insta-dry Matte $8 CAD (almost double the other) - The Salon Manicure does appear to be more hollow, when actually apply it, you can tell that this one is super jampacked with holo pigment - After two layers, the salon manicure series is perfect set and ready to finish ( actually one layer is good enough, if you do want extra hallow pigment, you can go with a second layer) but the insta-dry matte series, it is not as clear as the other, and you actually need a third layer to get the perfect finish. - The formula is thicker in Salon Manicure, but the consistency is very good and fluid. And it doesnt dragging the brush. It floats super nicely across the nail. - My opinion - I personally really love the Salon Manicure. Although both polish are from Sally Hansen, this one definitely wins over the other in every area. I love the fact that you can see the formula is a two-toned color, you can actually see the color shifting when turning it into different angles. And it appears the same on your nails. It has a perfect combination of blue and purple with purple pearl shimmer to keep the nail going strong.
COLLAGEN— THE SECRET TO WRINKLE-FREE SKIN?!
I’ve always heard/been told that once you hit 25 you need to start incorporating collagen into your daily routine. Our bodies natural collagen production begins to decline and adding it or collage- boosting products can help to keep plump, wrinkle-free skin. I am under 25 but that doesn’t mean that I can't still benefit from collagen products. Collagen What is it: Collagen is a protein found in your body that provides it’s structure including the skin, hair and nails. Collagen decline: Many factors decline collagen production including: •age (typically after 25) •sugar/refined carbs •excess sun exposure •smoking How to boost collagen production: Fortunately there are many ways to boost collagen production. Including foods, supplements, and skin care. This can either be incorporated directly from the source (collagen) or by the collagen-boosting foods. Collagen foods: •bone broth •egg whites •fish •lean meat •spirulina Collagen-boosting foods: •vitamin C; such as citrus fruits, broccoli •zinc; such as certain cereals, breads •manganese; such as leafy green vegetables and teas •copper; such as nuts and shellfish Supplemnets: Supplements are an easy way to incorporate collagen into the body. They can be incorporated into foods or drinks making it practical for everyday use. Some forms of supplements include: •gelatin •collagen pills •collagen peptide/protein powders •marine collagen Skincare: If you are using a skincare product this claims to have pure collagen in it, it may not be as beneficial as you’d like it to be. That is because collagen in it’s pure form may be to hard to penetrate through the skin and will leave you with no benefits. When choosing skincare products for collagen, its best to chose products that claim to boost collagen production. These products will contain ingredients mentioned above such as vitamin-c and even retinols. A product that I use that boosts collagen production with the help of active marine plant extracts is: ELEMIS - Pro-Collagen Marine Cream — $128 Key Ingredients: •Padina Pavonica: A unique Mediterranean algae with proven outstanding anti-aging benefits (aids in the production of collagen) •Mimosa: An anti-inflammatory, toning and astringent. It has a pleasing, delicate aroma •Rose: A natural fragrance component with nurturing and calming properties -Ulta.com What is it: Hydrating, wrinkle cream that helps firm the skin. How I use: This cream is intended for day use but I find it way to thick to use during the day. I like to use this cream at night as a moisturizer to seal in all of my other creams and serums. I apply all over my face and neck. Results/Recommendations: Like previously stated, this cream is very thick. I’m prefer lightweight creams over thicker ones. This cream is not irritating and did not cause any side affects for my sensitive skin. However I did not see any dramatic differences for the amount of money the product cost. I feel as if other products work better but I do like that it aids in collagen production. I personally would not repurchase. If you are worried about wrinkles or are interested in living a healthier lifestyle, I would recommend for you to think about incorporating ways to boost your collagen production. This can either be through quitting bad habits such as smoking, making better food choices, or incorporating collagen supplements/skincare into your daily routine. Lastly, if you are a vegetarian, etc. it is good to know that there are plenty of plant-based options available. #CheriePartner
lily collins 🍷 inspired look
Have you guys seen Emily in Paris? I know its stereotypical, unrealistic, and kindofunfairtothefrench but... It was so entertaining. I binged it in 2 days. I also found Emily’s actress, Lily Collins, super pretty. She looks like Snow White in so many makeup looks, so I tried my hand at once. This is what she wore in the 2017 Oscars. Here’s a few tips for how I did this look! 🍷 TIPS 🍷 ￼￼￼Start the liner with pencil. And keep it in the outer corner of your eyes. The pencil should emphasize your upper and lower outer corners to frame the wing. I used my PHYSICIANS FORMULA - Eye Boost Gel Eyeliner Trio ￼￼￼Avoid felt-tipped liner. Ironically, that’s what I used here. The L'ORÉAL - Infallible Super Slim Liquid Eyeliner IS great quality and value. Its opaque and hasn’t gone bad with on/off use in 2 years. The finish is sort of shiny, and it glides on easy. Buuuut for this look, go for full paint liquid liner. It’ll make the wing more pronounced, and less likely to fray. The felt tip is great, but the ink can run low for this kind of look. ￼￼￼Use white + light eyeshadow to emphasize the space. This helps a LOT. It doesn’t look like it at first, but this look has shadow! I used the URBAN DECAY - UD x Gwen Stefani Eyeshadow Palettepalette. Take a color that’s your skin color (but shimmery) and apply it all over your eyelid. (I used the shade Bathwater) Put a MINIMAL amount of brown crease shadow at the outer edge (Anaheim). Do a bright inner corner highlight (Blonde) AAAAAND fill in the space between your black liner (Blonde). It might soften the black liner- No worries, pure liquid liner can easily go over it again. Still, using skin-toned / brighter shadow really makes the black pop! ￼￼￼Make your lashes biggest at the center. Guys I had to redo my lashes like 10 times. And I trimmed the ends a LOT. It doesn’t even make it across my entire lid, but that’s okay- To match Lilly Collin’s look, center the lashes. Opt for a frayed look like e.l.f. - Natural Lash Kit so it opens your eyes without hiding the liner. I personally like this lash set and glue. The lashes are a little fragile, but they’re comfortable. And I like that the glue is clear- You can’t see all the places I accidentally got it on my eye. 🤡 ￼￼Pick a lip color with sheen. Her lips aren’t fully matte in this picture. But I like that- they have a pretty glow. I went for a more berry looking color. The NYX - Soft Matte Metallic Lip Cream in Madrid is just as good as the regular matte lip colors. They’re not drying, and they’re super pigmented. ￼￼And finally, a subtle blush. I found that peach/ amber goes well with this look. Apply it to the apples of your cheek, and avoid the under eyes. This will make the eye area look more open. I used the BOURJOIS - Little Round Pot Blusher in Rose Amber. A little hard to swatch, but pretty and subtle!
