SPF With No White Cast? YES PLEASE!A round-up of the best sunscreens with no white cast, for every skin tone past medium.
Cherie is an online community of beauty lovers sharing their stories; whether that's their favorite products, makeup tutorials, or skincare routines. Download the app today to be a part of #BeautyWithoutBarriers and show the world what beauty means to you!If there's one thing this year that I am really excited about (and there are so many things to, sadly, not be) it's that so much of the skincare and makeup world have finally come to the revelation that sunscreen should be worn every. Single. Day, and reapplied multiple times a day at that! Even though I'm a late SPF converter, as in, I didn't start wearing sunscreen religiously until just late last year, I've already seen the difference it's made in protecting my skin from aging and from PIH (post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation aka acne scarring). As a Filipinx, I grew up with a lot of my family thinking sunscreen was only for swimming and that brown skin didn't need it. Yes, my entire family believed the myth that sunscreen was for those who were sunburn prone, when in reality it's for everyone with skin that sees the sun!! I would've believed this myth forever if it hadn't been for an old colleague of mine who, upon finding out I didn't apply sunscreen on a daily basis, chewed me OUT. She said something that stuck with me since and that I'll share with you today... ALL THAT WORK YOUR DOING TO TAKE CARE OF YOUR SKIN DOESN'T MATTER IF YOU AREN ' T PROTECTING IT FROM THE SUN! All caps, just for those who may not be convinced just yet. If you're like me and debunking that brown skin doesn't need SPF, keep reading to discover sunscreens with NO white cast, so you can protect your skin without that pasty look .Purito Green Level Unscented Sunscreen

BEST mascara for straight lashes 🤩💕
I have straight, thin, long Asian lashes that need volume + curl + length, so it’s pretty much impossible for me to find a mascara that I like. I use a Shu Uemura or Kevyn Aucoin lash curler to curl my lashes first - these two lash curlers have been the best performing for me, since they fit Asian eyelids pretty well! L'ORÉAL - Voluminous Lash Paradise Mascara - this mascara is supposed to be a dupe for TF Better Than Sex Mascara, and I actually like it better! I’ve used both the waterproof and the regular one, and it’s kept my straight lashes curled. I like drier formulas, and this is definitely one of those - no flaking and curl is held all day, BUT it does get a bit clumpy. if you’re into clumpy lashes (I am, honestly), you might like this one because it does build volume and length. benefit - Roller Lash Curling & Lifting Mascara - this is probably my favorite high end mascara because it actually lengthens, volumizes, and retains my curl. I usually don’t believe that high end mascara is worth it, but I would repurchase this one if I was splurging on myself! benefit - They're Real! Mascara - this is a very ordinary mascara and performs really closely to the original L’Oreal Voluminous line, in my opinion. nothing to write home about - didn’t hold up my curl, no significant length or volume. Heroine Mascara - this mascara is INTENSE. it holds my curl super well and gives me some length and volume, but is IMPOSSIBLE to take off. it took about ~3 days for me to completely clean this mascara off with oil-based remover, so if you have really straight and thin lashes, this may be a great option, but do note it’s difficult to remove. Too Faced - Better Than Sex Mascara - I actually despise this mascara because it’s super wet, then gets super dry in the tube really quickly. this is one of the few mascaras that flaked on me, didn’t hold a curl, and just didn’t look good immediately after application. I got a free one and wouldn’t repurchase. L'ORÉAL - Telescopic Waterproof Mascara - my holy grail since middle school! I use the waterproof one and it holds my curl, lengthens, and volumizes (with extra coats) better than any other mascara has. every time I stray from this mascara, I find myself coming back because it’s just that good. I find it’s the right wet/dry ratio that I love. would totally recommend this for all lash types, whether you have straight, curled, thick, thin, or short lashes! overall, my top two picks would be the L’Oreal telescopic mascara and the L’Oreal lash paradise. I wouldn’t spend too much money on mascara and would instead invest in a great eyelash curler, since they can last you for years. drugstore products are always my favorite, so if you have any recs I’d love to hear them!
🥭 Creamy + Dreamy AF Cleansing Balm ✨
This is the GLOW RECIPE - Papaya Sorbet Smoothing Enzyme Cleansing Balm and I really, really love it-and I’ll tell you why! ✨Claims via Glow Recipe✨ “Reveal smooth, glowing skin... and effortlessly dissolve makeup, dirt, and oil with the PEG-free Papaya Sorbet Enzyme Cleansing Balm....The mix of exfoliating and calming papaya seed oil, papaya enzymes, papaya extract, and antioxidant-packed blueberry, leaves skin clean, bouncy, and glowing.” ✨My experience✨ So this is only the 3rd actual cleansing balm I’ve tried, and it’s my favorite so far. The oil in mine did not come super solidified, it was more of a super thick but creamy balm (as the texture shows. With other balms I tend to get chunks of oil that take forever to melt down and I loved that this product is so smooth and creamy that it instantaneously melted into my hands and on my face. Though I have been told by others that their texture was not like mine with the same product, so there may be some batches that are better than others? For those of you who have tried this out, what was the texture for you guys? A little does go a long way but I like to use big fat globs of this it feels like silk on my skin! 💦It doesn’t irritate my eyes AT ALL! Of course if oil does get in my eye my vision gets blurry but all oils do that and I did not experience any pain with it💦 👩🔬Ingredients- because bitch they don’t lie👩🔬 ￼Papaya enzymes ~ enzymes are chemicals that speed up the rate of chemical reactions without being consumed by the reaction itself. So this helps our skins biological processes that normally require dangerously high body temperatures / energy, able to occur at normal temperatures. They exfoliate by breaking down the keratin protein that makes up our dead skin cells on the uppermost skin layer. Enzymes can also be anti-inflammatory + protect our skin from oxidative damage from sun and environmental pollutants. I love that I can use this for a way gentle exfoliation every day! This comes 8th in the ingredient list so I appreciate that glow recipe actually included a significant amount of the fruit enzymes that it advertises. ￼Papaya Extract + Seed Oil ~ rich in fatty acids (oleic and linoleic) as well as vitamins A, C + E to nourish skin ￼Blueberry Extract ~ rich in antioxidants that can help fight free radicals damage, soothe + brighten skin ￼Camellia Japonica Seed Oil ~ a lightweight, moisturising oil rich in Oleic Acid plus vitamins A, D, + E ￼Apricot Kernel Oil ~ high in fatty acids + vitamin E ￼to all you fragrance haters out there- this one is FRAGRANCE FREE but still smells like fruity + delicious 🌍Sustainability🌍 This product does contain polyethylene. There is a lot of buzz hating on that ingredient due to harming the ocean. Now, I’m not completely sure if liquid cosmetic grade polyethylene is harmful the way consumable household plastics are. Anyone let me know if you do! Glow recipe does make that distinguishment. XOXOGLOW RECIPE - Papaya Sorbet Smoothing Enzyme Cleansing Balm
CMON MADDIE..... Really ? 😒
okay so i’m sorry for the light this week but i’m working on a work station. However this Morphe Maddie palette isn’t doing it for the me. In my opinion I believe to pull a good palette together is blend ability and good shimmer or glitters. The shimmers on the is so trash 🗑 sorry to say. i literally had to dig for a good creamy shine. However it isn’t a complete miss. The other colors did have some good pigment and my fav shade is the black shade. It was really dark and blendable. I would probably recommend this to someone with more fair skin because they pigments and shimmers would work better in their favor. Have you used this palette if yes tell me all about below, if no would you still wanna try it out and why ?
How to build your skincare routine
How to build your skincare routine VOL. I - for many people getting into skincare it can super confusing (even as a professional it is) 😳 • Therefore I’m coming out with a series to help anyone who needs some guidance on where to begin 😉 • 3 parts: Step 1 - addressing your skin concerns! Step 2 - doing some research on different brands, ingredients, products to use or even consulting a professional and Step 3 - buying the essentials and not splurging 🤷🏽♀️ • Many esthetician’s and dermatologists offer consultations to clients who need help or guidance so check the ones in your area to see if that’s an option for you 👏🏽 • Not splurging is KEY! The last thing you want to do is drop $500 on products, only to find out your skin doesn’t agree with them or you don’t like them 🥴 • Was this chart helpful? Are you excited about this new series? 💙 • What’s your beginner skincare advice for building a routine? ♥️ CeraVe - Foaming Facial Cleanser For Normal To Oily Skin PAULA'S CHOICE - Resist Advanced Replenshing Toner
