NATIVE NATURAL DEODORANT - SENSITIVE FALL COLLECTION
Oct. 8, 2020
NATIVEPumpkin Spice Latte
Living in The Florida Keys, I don't experience the varying four seasons of the year. It’s just hot and humid all year long. So I barely notice when Autumn arrives.
I may be in flip flops and a sundress beneath the palm trees, but deep down, I am a basic bitch who would rather be in long jeans with boots and a knitted sweater among the autumn leaves while drinking Starbuck's Pumpkin Spice Latte.
That’s why I love Native's new Autumn collection. Because I may not look dressed for Autumn, but I smell like I am. These deodorants transport me to somewhere like New England.
The deodorant stick itself is very potent, but it is just right when I am wearing it throughout the day, not too overpowering. I forget I am wearing pumpkin spice deodorant until I have my arms up, and then suddenly, I am pleasantly reminded.
I have never tried Native's original formula. I have had a sensitivity to baking soda deodorants for a decade now (it upsets my pH balance). But I can attest to their sensitive formula. They are truly effective, and last all day for me. Keep me dry and smelling good too.
Plus, it goes on smooth and has great skin conditioning ingredients such as Shea Butter, Coconut Oil, Jojoba, and Vitamin E. It feels similar to conditioning deodorants such as Dove. Plus, probiotics to keep your underarm microbiome in harmony (yes, you have a microbiome on your armpits similar to your mouth).
Magnesium Hydroxide is the main deodorizer. It is a natural mineral and has always worked well for me. It contains beeswax, so it's technically not vegan; however, it is cruelty-free, which is mandatory for me when buying cosmetics and toiletries.
The packaging is very minimalistic, which is their intention. Native is not the typical natural deodorant my hippy grandmother would buy at the local organic shop. It is very modern, which seems to be the brand target, the kind of people who shop at Whole Foods in business attire and yoga pants, not Birkenstocks.
It’s not the most elegant deodorant stick I own but its more elevated than traditional drug store deodorants, and I don’t mind someone seeing it on my nightstand.
Pumpkin Spice Latte: Smells exactly like the favorite fall beverage. It contains pumpkin fragrance and actual nutmeg, cardamom, and cinnamon to give it that indistinguishable comforting and warming scent.
Coconut Milk & Turmeric: By far, this one is my favorite of the four fall scents, which surprised me. Its as mild and warming as an actual hot glass of coconut milk with turmeric.
Buttercream & French Vanilla: Strong vanilla scent. It smells like cake batter if that is your thing, but not in a cheap and juvenile way like some other body products with a similar scent.
Blood Orange & Clove: A crisp citrus scent made almost masculine by the pop of clove. But I would call this scent unisex, however. It is an almost cologne-like fragrance, but much subtler.
Black Owned Makeup Look
So I decided to use the products I pictured in my first photo (minus my highlight shade and lipstick) I used the #Ace Beaute - Nostalgia Palette[products]#[FiveStars] for my entire eye look. I definitely enjoyed these products. My only advice is to shake the UOMA BEAUTY - Say What?! Foundation before use (because it can come out watery) but the coverage is absolutely flawless. I was shocked with the consistency the coverage I got. What’s your favorite black owned brands? (I do not own right to the song)
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?
Drunk Elephant- The Littles 🐘
I won this cute little kit in a raffle & I couldn’t be more thankful! I have always wanted to try these products but never wanted to spend the money on all of them incase I didn’t like them! Inside this kit are the following products: DRUNK ELEPHANT - Beste No. 9 Jelly Cleanser Deluxe Sample DRUNK ELEPHANT - B-Hydra Intensive Hydration Serum DRUNK ELEPHANT - Protini Polypeptide Cream DRUNK ELEPHANT - C-Tango Multivitamin Eye Cream DRUNK ELEPHANT - T.L.C. Framboos Glycolic Resurfacing Night Serum DRUNK ELEPHANT - C-Firma Vitamin C Day Serum DRUNK ELEPHANT - Virgin Marula Luxury Facial Oil DRUNK ELEPHANT - Umbra Tinte Physical Daily Defense Broad Spectrum Sunscreen SPF 30 That’s literally a whole skincare routine! So far I started out my day with one of Drunk Elephants infamous “Face Smoothies” I washed my face with Beste No. 9 Jelly Cleanser & then combined C-Firma Day Serum, Virgin Marula Luxury Facial Oil, & Protini Polypeptide Cream together on my mixing trey with a disposable skincare spatula! I applied it all over my face & neck. Once that absorbed, I applied Umbra Tinte Daily Defense SPF 30 over my face & neck & was done! I love how the kit comes with steps to walk you through different routines you can use in the morning or at night! I will do a follow up review after I have used all the products for a few weeks! But so far, my skin feels & looks great! I have been breaking out lately & haven’t felt the best about my skin so I really needed this pick me up!! Thank you for reading! You guys are the best!! ❤️ @cherie@Cheriebeauty@CheriePick
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? 🍃
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 🙏🏾

My Mental Wellness Improved Through My Self AcceptanceWhen I was around 13 or 14 years old, I remember routinely taking one of my older sister’s black eyeliner pencils before school every morning. I’d arrive early so that I could slip away to the girl’s bathroom to apply a single black line to my eyelids. My parents didn’t allow me to wear any makeup at the time. Although this smudgy line on my eyelids didn’t make me look all that much different, I never felt comfortable at school without it. My teenage mind convinced myself that I needed some sort of cosmetic symbol in order to appropriately express my femininity. Up until that point in my life, society had told girls that looked like me - tall, Black, and with kinky hair - that we somehow weren’t as beautiful as the other girls. For far too long, I believed it too.Feb. 17
