I personally love my milk bar from Beekman 1802—it is such a gentle yet cleansing formula, and my oh my does it last! Save some counter space, money, and earth-harming plastic with this simple switch. 4. A solid face oil from this iconic sustainable brand
LUSHFull of GraceThis sustainable swap is mainly for the packaging, because oils already have a low water content and don't need preservatives the same way other beauty products do. Lush is a go-to for all things naked and sustainable when it comes to beauty, so of course they already are ahead of the game with solid moisturizers! 5. An instant mud mask that clarifies and evens texture
EARTH HARBORCacao Cove Detoxifying Indulgence MaskGoing for mud or clay masks that aren't already pre-mixed with water is great because you get a product with a longer shelf life and one that is more potent! This Earth Harbor mud mask utilizes cacao, green clay, and coconut charcoal to detox the skin and leave you with a more even complexion.

👀 Great Results!! 👀 My New Serum - 💋
- Origins Ginzing Into the Glow Brightening Serum - Okay, I don’t know about you, but I’m a sucker for great packaging. Seriously though. Something could be outrageously priced but have pretty packaging and I’ll end up buying it! (Yeah TonyMoly!) Lol Anywho, when I first came across this serum, my first thought was that it would make great Shelf Candy for Halloween time! Lol It’s bright orange so it’s perfect. 🎃 - Key Ingredients - ￼Vitamin C ￼Hyaluronic Acid ￼AHA/BHA Blend ￼Green Coffee Seed - Benefits (Pro’s) - ￼Reduces Redness ￼Reduces Inflammation ￼Boosts Hydration ￼Improves Sun/Dark Spots ￼Boosts Cell Turnover ￼Brightens and Plumps Skin - Con’s - ￼Burns if used after exfoliating ￼Tad bit expensive ￼Burns if used after plucking hairs ￼Leaves skin a little sticky and tacky I used this serum for a few weeks before even thinking about writing an article about it because I didn’t just want to give my first impressions. This serum was a bit difficult for me at first because the first time I used it I had just deeply exfoliated my skin and used 2 of my torture devices to clear my pores and to remove the small hairs from my face. When I say “Torture Devices”, my 7 year old Son named them that. Lol It’s my Blackhead Vacuum and my Spring Facial Hair Remover. Anywho, back on track. Since I used it right after these, it burned like no one’s business. 😱It felt like a darn Bee Stinging me over and over. 🐝🐝 Nevertheless, I didn’t get discouraged and tried again the next day which still burned but after my skin healed from everything, it never burned again.🥳 Long story short, my skin day by day has started looking brighter and lighter. It is much much smoother which makes wearing Foundation, well.... Smoother. My Dark Sun Spots look 👀 softer than before and the redness in my T-Zone has reduced noticeably. 👹ORIGINS - Ginzing Into the Glow Brightening Serum My skin is softer, looking and feeling more hydrated and moisturized. It has a great texture. It’s like a cream mixed with a serum. It isn’t runny or thin like a normal serum. It isn’t oily and doesn’t have a harsh scent. 🤔 - My Final Thoughts - 🤔 (Every time I say that, I think of Jerry Springer!)🪑 I know that if I would keep using this Serum it would give me much more dramatic results. This serum is an excellent product. It has so many great benefits. It’s 100% Vegan, meaning no animal products.(except for Beeswax and Honey) It gives amazing results in such a short amount of time. It’s definitely worth the price and the purchase. I give it 5 stars! ⭐️ ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ I recommend it for any skin type or tone. BUT if you have Sensitive skin, I recommend Spot or Patch Testing first because it has ingredients in it that can be harsh on Sensitive Skin sometimes. ❓❓If you have any Questions, Comments, Complaints or Suggestions? Let me know in the comments below! (Hehehe that rhymes!) Lol ❓❓ ✌️♥️ UNTIL NEXT TIME LOVELIES................
My Favorite Falsies! 👑 ✨ 💖
I am OBSESSED with falsies! This is going to sound extra, but I honestly feel like a different woman when I put them on. They complete a makeup look and can make it go from 0-100. They are an essential part of opening your eyes and enhancing the best features of your eyes. You can go for natural ones, dramatic, attention grabbing and whatever mood you’re feeling! In fact, I love them so much that I actually used to invest in lash extensions. I have been using falsies since I was in high school so I have experienced good falsies and bad ones too. I have almond shaped eyes and I understand that it could be overwhelming to find the right falsies for your eye shape...this is one of the reasons why I LOVE House of Lashes. They have an eye shape guide and recommend which lash styles are best for you. My top three favorite lashes from this brand are: Au Naturale, Bouidoir Lite and Demure Lite. 1) Au Naturale I go for these often. They are wearable for any occasion. This gives a “your lash but better guide”. I also use this when I create a dramatic look, but don’t want to over power it with lashes. 2) Boudoir Lite This has a dense center. They are dramatic, but soft enough. I go for these when I go out 3) Demure Lite These are also soft and more on the natural side with an oomph. This helps open my eyes and emphasize any eye look. House of lashes are a bit on the mid range price. However, ELF and Ardell are also my fav falsies that are on the affordable side. My favorite “your lashes, but better” falsies is the Ardell Wispies. These look sooo natural! I use it as an alternative to my Au Naturale. Another falsies that I always grab for especially if I want the attention stealing is the ELF Social Butterfly. These are faux mink lashes and did I mention they are $3?! Ardell and ELF are very affordable, but HOL falsies are much easier to apply so if you’re a beginner, I would suggest you invest in HOL. It’s worth it! Lashes can be reused 15+ times depending on how you care for them. Here are my quick step by step for falsies: 1) Measure the lashes to your eyes and cut to your desired length. Most falsies are large so always measure it to your eye first. 2) For easier application, grab one of those lash glues with wand. Apply extra glue on the corners of the lashes because these tend to come off easily 3) Wait 30 seconds for the glue to become tacky then grab your tweezers to apply falsies closest to your lash line. 4) Hold it until it is fully glued to your natural lashes 5) This step is optional, but apply mascara to diffuse your falsies to your natural lashes. This will give you a natural result 6) Apply eyeliner or use a dark eyeshadow to hide the lash band. 7) Voila! Then enjoy! It took me a while to get this down. I’ve been applying eyelashes for more than 10 years and even to this day, I’m still not the best at it. Just keep practicing! What is your favorite falsies? Xoxo, Francesca 💋 #CheriePartner
NIACINAMIDE explained! $6 serums worth trying!
Try these $6 serums to reap the many benefits of niacinamide! Hey everyone! I’m sure you’ve heard and seen so much about 𝙉𝙄𝘼𝘾𝙄𝙉𝘼𝙈𝙄𝘿𝙀 lately. It seems like every new skincare product has it and the niacinamide serums are selling like crazy. 𝙒𝙝𝙖𝙩 𝙞𝙨 𝐧𝐢𝐚𝐜𝐢𝐧𝐚𝐦𝐢𝐝𝐞? Niacinamide is a form of Vitamin B3. It’s the latest trend in skincare, but has been used in skincare for a very long time. It has many benefits from helping acne, repairing skin, smoothing fine lines.. the list goes on. You can find it as it’s own serum or as a main ingredient along with other powerhouse ingredients. 𝐁𝐞𝐧𝐞𝐟𝐢𝐭𝐬 ￼￼￼locks in moisture; helps build a lipid barrier. ￼￼￼prevents environmental damage + protects from environmental stressors and pollution. ￼￼￼minimizes pores ￼￼￼reduces inflammation; helps redness w/ acne and eczema. ￼￼￼regulates oil production. ￼￼￼rebuilds skin cells ￼￼￼protects against sun damage & skin cancer. ( you still need SPF) ￼￼￼helps hyperpigmentation (not to a vitamin c extent, but can help lighten spots a bit) ￼￼￼minimizes fine lines and wrinkles *yes plz* ￼￼￼helps acne! Overtime a decrease in breakouts. 𝙂𝙞𝙫𝙚 𝙮𝙤𝙪𝙧 𝙨𝙠𝙞𝙣 2 𝙢𝙤𝙣𝙩𝙝𝙨 𝙢𝙞𝙣𝙞𝙢𝙪𝙢 𝙩𝙤 𝙨𝙩𝙖𝙧𝙩 𝙨𝙚𝙚𝙞𝙣𝙜 𝙧𝙚𝙨𝙪𝙡𝙩𝙨. 𝙃𝙤𝙬 𝙞𝙩 𝙝𝙖𝙨 𝙝𝙚𝙡𝙥𝙚𝙙 𝙢𝙮 𝙨𝙠𝙞𝙣: I have incorporated Niacinamide into my skincare routine for the last 3 months and I have noticed + a decrease in breakouts. + less oily skin + huge change in my pores, way less visible around my nose and cheeks. + less eczema than usual for this time of the year for me. 𝘾𝙖𝙣 𝙚𝙫𝙚𝙧𝙮𝙤𝙣𝙚 𝙪𝙨𝙚 𝙞𝙩? For the most part, yes... Some people do have a sensitivity to niacinamide and can break out from it. If you start to break out different than your normal while using it, I suggest taking it out of your routine to see if it is not a match for your skin. 𝘼𝙛𝙛𝙤𝙧𝙙𝙖𝙗𝙡𝙚 𝙉𝙞𝙖𝙘𝙞𝙣𝙖𝙢𝙞𝙙𝙚 𝙨𝙚𝙧𝙪𝙢𝙨 𝙩𝙤 𝙩𝙧𝙮: The Ordinary - Niacinamide 10% + Zinc 1% Since I’ve switched to this “holy grail” my skin has drastically improved. It also includes Zinc which helps with acne as well. $5.90 a price that is TOO good. Sold at Ulta and Sephora. GOOD MOLECULES - Niacinamide Serum Another great serum! I’ve used this one before and it works almost just as well as the ordinary. It is also %10 niacinamide. The brand also has an amazing niacinamide toner! $6 online at good molecules. Both of these serums are 10% niacinamide. Studies have shown that 2-5% works very effectively so you don’t need such a high percentage. #cheriepartner #cheriecreator
TURNING DRUGSTORE LASHES INTO WISPY FAUX MINKS✨
Drugstore lashes can be good on their own but there are some tips I use to make my lashes fluffier and wispier. When finished we these steps your lashes can look as good as faux mink quality lashes. Products: - False lashes, I used KISS - Ever Ez Lashes - Individual lash extensions, I used Lash Stuff Simply Exquisite - Faux Mink Single Length Eyelash Extensions - Lash adhesive, I used ARDELL - Lashtite Adhesive Clear - Lash glue, I used ARDELL - Duo Quick-Set Lash Adhesive Dark - A spoolie - Small scissors - Tweezers To do: - First, with the lashes still on the tray, vigorously brush out the lashes with this spoolie. This will create the lashes to appear wispier. - Next, with the scissors trim the lash ends down to a length that works best for you. Then take the scissors and cut upwards into the lashes. This will create dimension in the lashes and also ensure there’s no harsh, straight, blunt cut. When making cuts I like to skip around each section. Folding the last tray so the lashes are peeking over the edge can help you during this step. - Use the individual lash extensions and place them randomly on the lashes. I like to put the long lashes in the outer corners and center of my eyes to create an eye-opening affect for my almond-shaped eyes. - Lastly, I trim the outer corner of the lashes to fit my eye shape. (Lashes are designed to be cut at the ends). I apply the lashes with the Lash Duo lash glue and curled them with my natural lash to blend them together. These lashes are completely customizable to your eye shape. Find what works best for you and use that to your advantage to create your perfect lash. #CheriePartner
