A common question I get at work is “Do I still need a moisturizer if I have oily skin?”. I’m not sure when or where this myth started but a lot of people I’ve encountered have been told in the past that if you have oily skin adding a moisturizer on top is going to make your oils worse. This couldn’t be farther from the truth! Every skin type can benefit for a moisturizer, you know have to find the right one. When you cleanse your skin you have potential to strip it if it’s natural oils. In order to keep balance you have to supplement it with hydrating ingredients. I know the go to thought process with oily skin would be to take away those oils (maybe with stripping ingredients like alcohol filled toners) but if you pair it with the right moisturizer you’ll actually feel more balanced. I learned in esthetics school about the three basic types of moisturizers. You have humectants (which attract water), emollients (which smoothes the skin by filling in dry patches), and occulsives (which form a protective layer). With oily skin you’ll want to focus on humectants because you need less “oily” ingredients and more “watery” ones. These will be mainly found in gel formulas. They will be lightweight enough on the skin to where you don’t feel heavy and gross but give you the hydration your skin craves. Some of my favorites are the 🛒｜GLOW RECIPE - Watermelon + AHA Glow Sleeping Mask ｜⭐️ ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ Farmacy Daily Greens, and the Clinique ID series with the clear gel base. In the long run using gel moisturizers will actually help contribute to balancing your oil production and your skin will thank you in the long run. 🖤🍒 Videos can be used to show how to use a product! In this post, @Zoelamps shares an electronic beauty device that makes her skin amazing. Her video post is able to effectively show how to use the product better than a still image would be able to!
Absolutely! I’ve been using my 🛒｜ZIIP - ZIIP GX ｜⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ for years and I love it so much. It has treatments for every skin need, for instance, acne, dark spots, wrinkles, and so much more. My friends tell me that I look like I have gotten a face lift (lol I’m only 24) and I owe it all to my ZIIP. I try and use it every few days and do a couple treatments in one sitting. I use the 🛒｜ZIIP - Golden Conductive Gel ｜⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ for all of my treatments. Although, I have never used the other gels. In case you don’t know what ZIIP is, it’s a app connected beauty device that uses electric currents to go through the skin. “Think of your ZIIP as an exquisitely beautiful battery that creates a circuit with your skin. It is able to send nanocurrents and microcurrents of varying waveforms to increase cell energy, communication, and repair. The electrical currents we use have been shown to increase ATP, or Adenosine Triphosphate, in skin cells. ATP is a naturally-occurring molecule that provides cells and muscles with usable energy.” (ZIIP website) It is really cool when you use it because you can actually feel the current through the skin. It is an investment but I think it’s worth it. Like I said, I’ve owned this product for years! It actually works and last for a very long time. I’ve never had any issues with it and it makes me skin feel and look amazing.🍒Videos can be used to share a complete product routine / collection!In this example, @athena__17 shares her PM skin journey and uses a video to show the products one by one all in the same video, which is more convenient than taking photos of each one and uploading them separately.
Im just going to go through each of these AMAZING products! Not all of these will necessarily work for your skin, but ill try to list some information on all of them so you can make some informed decisions 🛒｜LA ROCHE-POSAY - Toleriane Hydrating Gentle Face Cleanser ｜⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ I literally love this cleanser. Everything about it. As a niacinamide based cleanser, it cleanses the skin of dirt, makeup and impurities whine maintaining the skins natural moisture barrier and pH. All while leaving my skin hydrated and refreshed. When i use this cleanser, i usually wet my face and hands, take 1-2 pumps of cleanser, and just rub it into my skin. I've heard there's a version for skin that's just as good. 15$ 🛒｜THE inkey LIST - Hyaluronic Acid Serum ｜⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ This works pretty well. This is probably not ESSENTIAL essential for my skincare routine, but it definitely packs a punch! It hydrates and feels really nice. When i use it, all i need is 1-2 drops to cover my entire face! 8$ 🛒｜The Ordinary - Niacinamide 10% + Zinc 1% ｜⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ Niacinamide sure does live up to it's hype. From the ordinary, it sooths and and so much more. Honestly, the benefits of niacinamide are endless. I love the formula. It sinks effortlessly into my skin. All i do is take a couple drops on my hands and rub it in! It usually can make my disappear overnight! ( it doesn't work this way for everyone) Definetly think this is worth adding to your routine 6$ 🛒｜The Ordinary - Lactic Acid 5% + HA ｜⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ A very mild exfoliant, it works wonders on my skin. If you have skin, i would recommend a BHA instead of an AHA, but lactic acid is good for my skin. It gets the job done. I apply it every night and it feels nice, but it also smells weird and is kinda boring. no ✨ p i z z a z✨ 6.50$ 🛒｜The Ordinary - Vitamin C Suspension 23% + HA Spheres 2% ｜⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ DO NOT BUY THIS IF YOU HAVE SKIN! This product has a sh*t ton of vitamin c, and should definetly be applied sparingly. Definetly recommend only applying small amounts to limited parts of the face. When used properly, however, this product can work wonders. I give it 4 stars because the instructions don't really specify this, but it REALLY helped my skin. 6$ 🛒｜CeraVe - Eye Repair Cream ｜⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ This eye cream worked wonders for my s!! It didn't help as much with my puffiness, but still HIGHLY recommend! This is a relatively cheap eye cream, with niacinamide as the SECOND ingredient!! See how many exclamation points im using?!?! This product is worth using explanation points for!!! 13$ 🛒｜CeraVe - PM Facial Moisturizing Lotion ｜⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ 🛒｜The Ordinary - 100% Organic Cold Pressed Rose Hip Seed Oil ｜⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ These two work together REALLY well. Take 2 pumps of the lotion, 2 drops of the rosehip oil, mix, and rub it in? Incredible. Amazing. Hydrates and moisturizes beautifully and feels like heaven. $12 $10🍒 Voice-overs: Including voice-overs and audio in your videos can make them even more informative and interesting!In this post, @xreyymua recorded an unboxing video to introduce a collection of Sephora brushes. He verbally explains the function of each brush and the voice over adds a personal element to make the video more engaging. For those of you looking for new ways to create video posts on cherie, you could try filming a video with your own voice in it or even edit a voiceover into the video after you are done recording! Voiceovers can be used for product reviews, tutorials, tips and tricks, and anything else you would like to add your own personal touch to!
I belive these launched Oct/ Nov 2019 (these videos are from my unboxing stories I do on Instagram) and I used these RELIGIOUSLY! Not only are they incredibly beautiful to look at but the quality, the holding cup and the overall aesthetic sold me. I was lucky enough to get these sent over from Milk Makeup to try out. At first I didn’t want to use them but I caved and used them the same day lol. The bristles are very beautifully packed, so soft yet dense, and no shedding!! (and I wash my brushes after I use them so I’m surprised they haven’t shed 1 hair yet). These brushes of course are vegan and cruelty free! I love Milk Makeup products so much as they are usually more on the simplistic yet effective end of beauty, no crazy price spikes. These are unfortunately not for sale anymore I believe but I wish they would bring them back! I always recommend this brush set to anyone who’s looking to step up their base routine. 🛒｜SEPHORA COLLECTION - Milk Makeup x Studio Brush Set｜⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️To get started on creating video posts, you can click "Upload" to upload existing videos from your camera roll, or click "Shoot Loop" to shoot a 10-second loop.Thanks for reading and being a part of the cherie community!

At Home Exfoliating Facial ✨✨
So I recently received the Mimi Co Exfoliating Wand via IG PR. I couldn’t wait to do a full facial and I decided to do it tonight. Order: I purchased a steamer from Amazon for $23 and I’m obsessed with it (DM me for product info). I started with UpCircle - Cleansing Face Balm With Apricot Powder As my oil cleanse to get my sunscreen from today off and any other oils and dirts. INDIE LEE - Purifying Face Wash This cleanser is perfect for getting dirts and oils from skin as well. It’s not drying and it’s totally worth it! I paired it with a face cleansing scrub brush, I also purchased from Amazon. I love it and I paid around $20 for it as well! It doubles the vibration frequency put out by Foreo. CLARISMA - Namaste Glow Energizing Face Mask This was the mask I chose for the enzyme properties. This breaks down dirts and oils in pores and dead skin cells. I also steamed my face during this time. Follain - Toning Mist: Balance + Prime This was what I sprayed over my face for the prep for my exfoliating wand. I didn’t have a true medium and I am out of Aloe Vera plants so😭 I then exfoliated with my wand starting at my cheeks and working upward and then to my forehead. I went down and to the sides of my nose. Glow slow! innisfree - Jeju Lava Seawater Lotion I used the toner to cleanse my skin and get any dirts left over from me exfoliating. SUMMER FRIDAYS - Jet Lag Mask I use this as my hydrating mask. I took the back of my Mimi Co Wand on switched to the Moisturizing Setting. I gently slid upwards my entire face for the last 2 mins only and then wiped the mask off with a damp cloth. earthtoskin - Tea Time Anti Aging Eye Cream This is the most hydrating eye cream I own. I used this with the back of my cleansing brush on the heat setting! Yes it made my eye feel so hydrated and relaxed. fresh - Lotus Anti-Aging Night Moisturizer This was the final step as a good moisturizer seals in everything! To prevent acne I use the SUNDAY RILEY - U.F.O. Ultra-Clarifying Face Oil as my last step. I didn’t use an astringent type toner, so I wanted to still treat my skin💚
My Farewell To Cherie
Follow me on Ig for more skincare since Cherie is leaving 😭 @naturedskinv This has been an amazing journey and I’ve made soo many amazing friends. Thank you for all the love, conversations, and just overall happiness I’ve experienced on this app. I’m definitely sad, a little upset, and a dash of confused, but thank you @cheriefor giving me such an amazing confidence boost and guidance. The way the app shaped my thoughts on skincare has been insane. I’m still willing to forget this and call it a joke if y’all are! 😭 Anyways thank you again and hopefully we can stay in touch 🙏🏾
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?
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? 🍃
