Empty! Would I repurchase???
I finally finished off my cult beloved Neutrogena - Hydro Boost Gel-Cream !! Did it live up to the hype?? Keep reading and see my opinion! This dye free, fragrance free version of the water-gel has been my AM moisturizer for awhile now while I worked through the jar. When I originally posted my routine, I added a short snippet about this product but now I am ready to tell my complete thoughts on it. For awhile, I was dealing with dry patches on my cheeks which was only an issue for a short time. I'm not entirely sure where it came from, but this product wasn't keeping my dry patches hydrated throughout the day. BUT now that those pesky dry cheeks have moved on, I didn't have any issues with this product!! I have a couple different moisturizers I want to try out, but I would definitely repurchase this again! It's super lightweight and sinks right into my skin. As the weather is getting colder, I tend to use a couple layers of it but it really works out for my oily/combo-ish skin! I have never felt like it's a thick mask on my face or anything. Just nice soft skin! The only real issue I have with this product is that it advertises right on the front of the jar that it is for extra dry skin and that it is formulated with hyaluronic acid. Although that is true, this ingredient (which is great for dry skin!) is not near the top of the ingredient list. I dont like when products advertise a really great ingredient and then don't include a hefty amount of that ingredient. I'm not entirely sure I would recommend this to those with really dry skin. I would however definitely recommend it for those with oily/combo/normal skin. I can't completely say how it would work for those with dry skin, but considering how it didn't really keep my dry cheeks hydrated all day... it could be iffy. But the product feels so good and soothing going on!

✨🌸 What's in my bathroom? 🌸✨
Hey everyone! This is my first post! 🥰 I decided to start off with this kind of post because this batch of skincare is my first ever! (I have only been consciously aware of my skincare for about two months now) So I'm always reevaluating my routine 😅 My skin type: combination;mostly dry but specifically oily in the creases of my nose. Prone to sensitivity, redness, and dehydration. Lets talk products! ♡CLEANSERS♡ Dr.Ceuracle - Pro Balance Pure Cleansing Oil Love this gentle oil cleanser! I only occasionally wear mascara(not waterproof) and it takes that off no problem with zero eye irritation! ANDALOU NATURALS - CannaCell Cleansing Foam Amazing, gentle, pure foam cleanser! Does not feel drying or make my skin tight after use, even without my oil cleanser! Pyunkang Yul - Low pH Pore Deep Cleansing Foam I have only used this about 3 times; each time after use I seem to get slight irritation, but doesn't last longer than 10-15 minutes or the rest of my products calm it down. ♡TONERS♡ pixi - Rose Tonic I love the rose smell(natural fragrance) and it can be a bit sticky after applying but doesn't bother me. pixi - Vitamin-C Tonic I feel like this toner is a great introduction to Vit C in skincare. I have "virgin" skin so this even tingles a little, but zero irritation even when I do 2-3 layers. COSRX - BHA Blackhead Power Liquid Very hydrating exfoliating toner and it leaves my skin so soft. This does not irritate my sensitive skin at all!(I only use 1-2 times a week) Pyunkang Yul - Essence Toner Honestly underwhelmed for the hype I heard about it. Still giving it a chance. Fleur & Bee - Rose and Shine / Natural Rose Water Toner Just a convenient hydrating mist. ♡SERUMS/OILS♡ Pyunkang Yul - Pyunkang Yul Moisture Serum Very nice to apply, great for layering Krave - Great Barrier Relief 100% WORTH THE HYPE essano - Certified Rosehip Oil I can't rate this yet(only used once so far) but overall first application was soothing! ♡MOISTURIZERS♡ Krave - Oat So Simple Water Cream Personally not hydrating enough alone for my dry skin, but a great base cream for me to layer with others due to the clean ingredients list. Pyunkang Yul - Pyunkang Yul Moisture Cream Great cream; however, the lid does have some black flakes of something that fall into the product when screwing it on and off. Neutrogena - Hydro Boost Gel-Cream Mediocre gel cream, not hydrating enough for me and the ingredients aren't the greatest. ANDALOU NATURALS - Luminous Night Cream Purple Carrot + C I love the thickness of this, but sometimes I wake in the morning with a weird tight flilmy feeling on my face. #Murad - Age Reform Perfecting Night Cream[products]# Honestly just bought this because it was on clearance😅 so we'll see how it goes Up next: my first detox mask, my sunscreens and a natural deodorant! ♡🌸✨

Skin Update ✨✨
Okay this is a totally non filtered sun photo of my skin. Still working on minor texture this is due to my new skin routine (I posted about my morning and will post my night). I try and show my skin with new routines and products I use because I get so many ! The number one thing I will say is be consistent! I saw a post from @MelaninSkinCareAddict(great post you should go check it out) and I loved it and it inspired me to show results from some advice she saw. My last skin update was 12/22 which I showed a unfiltered close up of my skin and the breakout I had endure out of the states! I will say for texture, hyperpigmentation, and acne you need: effective vitamin C serum- should have vitamin E (tocopherol), hyaluronic acid, and Ferulic acid insta natural - Vitamin C Serum Mad Hippie - Vitamin C Serum retinol- DIFFERIN - DIFFERIN Acne Treatment Gel is my first go to, but now I use The Ordinary - Retinol 0.5% in Squalane GLOW RECIPE - Avocado Melt Retinol Sleeping Face Mask (I use this on nights I don’t use The Ordinary retinol oil .. 2xs a week) cleanser made for you skin: should be tailored and effective my current faves: Murad - AHA/BHA Exfoliating Cleanser (2x week) COSRX - Low PH Good Morning Gel Cleanser (only when I oil cleanse) (3xs a weeks when I wear my night mask) PEACH & LILY - Power Calm Hydrating Gel Cleanser (mostly for nights) toner: a great toner will be your friend! This is important for removing dirts and oils. If you wear makeup this is a necessity. PAULA'S CHOICE - Enriched Calming Toner Murad - Clarifying Toner innisfree - Jeju Lava Seawater Lotion sunscreen: at least spf30 TULA SKINCARE - Daily Sunscreen Gel Broad Spectrum SPF 30 ELEMIS - Daily Defence Shield SPF30 moisturizer: a great moisturizer is your friend! So my faves fresh - Lotus Anti-Aging Night Moisturizer at night SUNDAY RILEY - Tidal Brightening Enzyme Water Cream during the day for hyperpigmentation before sunscreen ✨✨✨✨ Other things I love that have helped COSRX - Advanced Snail 96 Mucin Power Essence I use this day and night after my toner. If you neee hydration this is my current go to! SUNDAY RILEY - U.F.O. Acne Treatment Face Oil I now use this on days I don’t use my vitamin C in the morning. PEACH & LILY - Glass Skin Refining Serum This has replaced my niacinamide from The Ordinary. If you want glass skin use this consistently! CLARISMA - Namaste Glow Energizing Face Mask I use this as my daily face mask once a week. I will be posting my detailed night routine soon as I’m redoing my entire on IG 🥰🥰

Sunday Riley’s Tidal is a Hot Mess
Where to start... I wanted to love this. I really, really did. But boy, this disappointed me! First, the good news: thankfully, I bought this at a discount through Ipsy, rather than at full price. And... the packaging is pretty. The rest, ladies, is pretty bad. This water cream is supposed to have a brightening effect. I can’t speak to whether it is effective at brightening or addressing discoloration, because I just could not wear this consistently. I tried. Really, I did. It has an odd scent that I can’t quite define. Whatever it is... it smells funky. If the product were effective, I could overlook this. This cream pills like crazy! Few products have ever caused such pilling for me. Like, SO bad. I have fairly sensitive skin (ever since I started using retinoids). But I can tolerate most products. There is something in this that caused irritation for me. It’s possible that this may not be the case for you, but for those with sensitive skin, be careful! Instead of a nice, refreshing “water” feel, my skin became red, hot, and irritated for the first few seconds. This dissipated quickly. It doesn’t really absorb. It feels greasy, rather than lightweight and hydrating. Yuck! I even tried to use this on my body (since my facial skin was sensitive), and I couldn’t stand it. It pilled, and it never absorbed. I’m not crazy about jars for sanitary reasons, so even though the packaging is beautiful, it’s not functional. So, while this cream does pack some decent ingredients, the formulation does not work for me at all... and it has irritating fragrances (yet smells funky!). Save your money and ditch this. SUNDAY RILEY - Tidal Brightening Enzyme Water Cream (Check out LANEIGE - Water Sleeping Mask instead. Review coming soon) Has anyone tried Peter Thomas Roth’s cloud cream? That is next on my list 😍

Brand Spotlight: BLISS
Bliss is one of my favorite affordable drugstore clean and cruelty free brand. They are easily accessible, you find them at: Ulta, CVS, Target and Bliss.com, etc. I can’t help but love everything that I’ve tried from them. Here are current favorites and must haves: Left to right: bliss - Clear Genius Clarifying Toner + Serum A mixture between toner and serum this is an awesome toner that is alcohol free, vegan, and packed with skin calming and pore refining ingredients : BHA, niacinamide, zinc and cica. bliss - Bright Idea Vitamin C + Tri-Peptide Collagen Protecting & Brightening Moisturizer My day/ night cream depending on my mood and what serums I’m using. Sinks in the skin well and has great texture. bliss - Drench & Quench Moisturizer This is comparable to TATCHA - The Water Cream very lightweight but pack a lot of moisture. It leaves my skin feeling a bit tacky which I love as a base before my primer and make up. bliss - Rose Gold Rescue Moisturizer All times favorite basic moisturizer for day and night. I usually use this when either my skin has a break out and I have to go back to basics or when I’m using retinol or some other harsh serums. bliss - Renew & Smooth Night Serum If you are new to glycolic acids or AHAs this is a great beginner’s choice. For me I thought this quite a gentle formula... I didn’t feel any discomfort or irritation. bliss - Fabulips Lip Scrub This is my first lip scrub... so I don’t know if it’s good or not. It’s not bad. It’s moisturizing, exfoliating and didn’t taste bad. 😋 Clean product: 🌱No Parabens 🌱No Alcohol 🌱No Sulfates 🌱No Nuts 🌱No Oils 🌱No Silicones 🐰Cruelty Free 🐰 Vegan Have you tried any of their product? Tell me your favorites below. Thank you. Be Kind, Stay Beautiful

Review on this baby
TATCHA - The Water Cream I got this sample from Sephora using my points. It has been laying around for a while, and I finally decided to give it a try a couple of weeks ago! I swear by my Lancôme creams, but I wanted to see what this hype is all about. - It feels lighter than my Lancôme facial cream. A little bit spreads so easily like water all over my face and neck. It has a nice scent to it. I thought it smelled like Eucalyptus oil, but it has Japanese wild rose and Japanese Leopard Lily. I have combination skin- I am only trying this during the day time, as it’s not creamy enough for night time use in Chicago cool weather. - The foundation spread very easily and looked flawless. At the end of the day- my face felt a little less shiny and less moisturized as opposed to my Lancôme cream. -Japanese Wild Rose is supposed to improve the look of pores. I do have some on my cheeks- but I didn’t really notice much difference. Most importantly! It did not break me out at all!! - So far, I still prefer Lancôme, but I can see this as a nice and less expansive alternative option in the summer. ❤️ Lancôme cream feels thicker and is more moisturizing- especially now with the cool weather! With this- I would have to wear a sunscreen. I have yet to find a sunscreen that does not break me out.

Products Getting Me Through Winter! ❄
Since I can remember I've had oily to combination skin, until this winter. It's been a rough one! My skin has been SO dry, and it's hard to keep up with it. Especially since I'm prone to acne and clogged pores, so I can't use a lot of heavy creams and pore clogging products. These I wouldn't be able to live without this winter! COSRX - Advanced Snail 96 Mucin Power Essence 🐌 I love this essence! This is a Korean product (Korean skin care will always be a hit). And it's made with Snail Mucin, weird right? This contains 96% snail mucin, which has incredible healing and antimicrobial properties. It promotes collagen production and aids in skin regeneration. And it's a top pick for dry skin types because of its amazing ability to hydrate. This has a jelly-like texture and I find myself ALWAYS reaching for this. Most of the claimed benefits do come with time. Another product I'm loving is the DRUNK ELEPHANT - B-Hydra Intensive Hydration Serum 💧This is a serum that came in a DE kit and I really want the full size! This seriously feels like a cold drink of water for your skin. It's lightweight and spreads nicely. It not only has Sodium Hyaluronate, (which is like hyarulonic Acid on steroids) but also Pineapple Ceramide and provitamin B5, an amazing humectant. As well as a lentil/apple/watermelon complex. It's not crazy different from other Hyarulonic Acid serums I've tried, but it's great! I finally got to try the cult favorite DRUNK ELEPHANT - Protini Polypeptide Cream . And wow I'm glad I did! This cream does have a few possible pore clogging ingredients so I was afraid to use it, but It's helped my dryness so much! It feels sooo moisturizing and soothing. I love that this is a protein moisturizer that has peptides, growth factors, amino acids, and pygmy waterlily to improve your overall skin health. This is an amazing anti-aging and skin strengthening moisturizer. I love using this it's a great experience. I already reviewed this incredible product, the Glossier. - Balm Dotcom 👄 It's become a staple lip balm for me. It's extremely hydrating and packed with antioxidants and natural emollients. It has Castor Oil, Beeswax, and Lanolin to seal in moisture. It leaves my lips looking sooo hydrated and smooth. It's THE perfect lip balm and I am obsessed. Feel free to comment or ask any questions below 💗

drunk elephant review with fungal acne🐘💗
as someone with fungal acne, buying the same products can be reaaallyyy boring. so this is my review of drunk elephant as someone with fungal acne!! * disclaimer, NONE of these products are fungal acne safe!! use at your own risk * DRUNK ELEPHANT - Slaai Makeup-Melting Butter Cleanser this cleansing balm doesn’t really emulsify when you activate it with water, leaving a really oily feeling😕 and doesn’t remove all my makeup DRUNK ELEPHANT - Beste No. 9 Jelly Cleanser Deluxe Sample this is a really nice gentle foaming cleanser... and thats pretty much it. DRUNK ELEPHANT - B-Hydra Intensive Hydration Serum i love this serum! its a lovely gel serum that absorbs in quickly and is greak at oil control DRUNK ELEPHANT - C-Firma Vitamin C Day Serum this serum is a little tricky, i haven’t really noticed a difference in my skin in terms if brightness, i do have a bit of dark spots and they haven’t budged. not to mention this formulation is a rip off of the SKINCEUTICALS - C E Ferulic With 15% L-Ascorbic Acid Vitamin C Serum  DRUNK ELEPHANT - Lala Retro Whipped Cream this is a thicc moisturizer that surprisingly doesn’t leave my oily skin looking greasy af. its a good moisturizer for dry combo skin!  DRUNK ELEPHANT - Protini Polypeptide Cream this moisturizer feels exactly like the lala retro... its just 8 dollars more expensive DRUNK ELEPHANT - T.L.C. Sukari Babyfacial Mask this mask burns so bad the first 20 seconds but then it settles down. i really havent seen a difference in my skin so DRUNK ELEPHANT - Virgin Marula Luxury Facial Oil ive only used this oil a few times but wow it really makes your skin feel super soft and dewy DRUNK ELEPHANT - Lippe Balm DRUNK ELEPHANT - Lippe Balm i love this lip balm but its 16 dollars and the claim are completely false! in conclusion, i wont be repurchasing anymore of drunk elephant products because in reality they are just good products... nothing too special ESPECIALLY for the price. they aslo didn’t want to provide information about the percentage of black employees during the Pull Up Or Shut Up movement so yeah. their aesthetic is cute but ive grown out of this phase 😀 like and save!! xo melanie

Top 2020 Skincare: Moisutrizer
I saw this happening on Insta and thought it would be fun to participate on Cherie! All month I’ll be posting my top 2020 skincare essentials in accordance to the schedule on the 2nd pic, so follow me if you want to see all my faves of this year! Up next- MOISTURIZER! 💛Dr. Jart+ - Ceramidin Cream I talk about this cream a lot, but that’s because it’s played a huge role in repairing my barrier and reducing my irritable skin’s sensitivity. It’s thick, has ceramides and shea butter, and is packed with herbal antioxidants that lend to the wonderfully calming scent. While this is a great cream for normal to dry skin, I am also acne-prone and it does not clog up my T zone or make me oily. This winter, I have been using it day and night! The only issue is that with the cooler weather, it has not totally stopped my cheeks from getting dry overnight, so I’ve been layering a bit of Aquaphor over those areas for extra occlusion. It’s also not cheap, but I’m willing to pay for a well-rounded moisturizer since I rarely use serums.

Soothing and brightening morning routine
I like to mix up my routine depending on what my skin is needing. This is what I call my soothing and brightening routine as I have a few brightening and deeply hydrating products in this routine. I like to keep my morning routine gentle and hydrating and I use most of my actives in my evening routines (vitamin C is the exception to the rule)! Glossier. - Milky Jelly Cleanser This is my go to gentle and hydrating morning cleanser Pyunkang Yul - Essence Toner This is a very popular Korean essence founded out of a Medicinal clinic and focus on a minimal ingredient list. COSRX - Full Fit Propolis Light Ampoule I love this light and soothing serum, my skin responses very well to bee products The Ordinary - Ascorbyl Tetraisopalmitate Solution 20% in Vitamin F This is a very effective vitamin c derivative serums. It has brightened my skin and there are none of the stinging side effect of full vitamin c. VERSED - ZERO-G Smoothing Eye Cream This is a gel/cream that is light with mild colour corrective properties Aveeno - Positively Radiant Daily Moisturizer SPF 30 My go to moisturizer with spf for days I am mostly inside. I use a very liberal amount but I am never greasy. On days I have time (usually Saturday 😃) I like to double mask with: VERSED - PHOTOS, PLEASE BRIGHTENING TIGHTENING MASK This is a Kaolin clay and turmeric mask that I use on my forehead, nose and chin. It never dries me out and the antioxidant properties are great. And VERSED - LOOK ALIVE Hydrating Plumping Mask This gel mask is so hydrating on my cheeks!

Hydrating and antioxidant morning routine
I am an avid skincare lover and I love trying out new products. I have dry and acne prone skin which means it has been lots of trial and error to find what works for my seemingly contradictory skin. This trial has led to my interest in skincare so I have developed several routines that work for me depending on the season, how my skin feels and my mood. This is one of my morning routines with products I have used extensively. I call this my hydrating and antioxidant routine and i use this routine year round. Glossier. - Milky Jelly Cleanser This is my favourite morning cleanser as it doesn’t strip my skin. FRUDIA - Pomegranate Nutri-Moisturizing Toner this is a great toner/essence hybrid that is deeply moisturizing and it preps my skin for my next steps. The Ordinary - Argireline Solution 10% i have used several bottles and it is a light serum that helps reduce dynamic lines. THE inkey LIST - Q10 Antioxidant Serum this is a light cream antioxidant that makes my face feel so soft. VERSED - ZERO-G Smoothing Eye Cream I enjoy this light cream as it hydrated my eye area it has a tint and shimmer to lighten the appearance of the area. Aveeno - Positively Radiant Daily Moisturizer SPF 30 this has been my go to moisturizer/spf for days I am staying inside. Or On days that I do go out I wear a separate moisturizer and spf such as THE inkey LIST - Turmeric Brightening Moisturizer this is an antioxidant, brightening moisture though it can be thick PAULA'S CHOICE - Youth-Extending Daily Hydrating Fluid I love this sun screen as it is super light and spreadable

Superfood SuperYES! 🌿
Talk about a refreshing cleanser! There are so few cleansers on the market that are actually full of ingredients I love and smell good! The scent is so light, crisp, and refreshing it’s like giving your face a salad! The product is a gel that creates a light foam as its lathered and leaves skin feeling fresh and smooth. I have tried other YTTP products and this is now tied with my other number one favorite, the YOUTH TO THE PEOPLE - Adaptogen Deep Moisture Cream with Ashwagandha + Reishi which I use daily. (Special thanks to Cherie for sending me a jar and getting me hooked!) YTTP’s website claims: 🌿Benefits: 🍃Kale: This leafy veg is a must-have for more than just your morning juice. It's rich in skin-loving phytonutrients and vitamins C, E and K. 🍃Spinach: A lightweight skin-soother that boasts a high natural moisture content and cooling properties. 🍃Green Tea: An anti-inflammatory oil packed with essential fatty acids. 🌿Claims: 100% Vegan ingredients Cold-pressed extracts Recyclable packaging Made in USA No animal testing No parabens No phthalates No sulfates The full ingredient list totally passes the checklist on harsh chemical free but it does have added perfume which can be a no-go for some people, especially with sensitive skin. Overall I loved it! Sound off below if you have tried it and don’t like it or are an every day user!! Retails for $36 YOUTH TO THE PEOPLE - Superfood Antioxidant Cleanser #CherieCreator

2020 empties and new goodies!!
here are all of my 2020 empties!!! i went ahead and categorized them by brand so that i dont get things mixed up. etude house ——————— ETUDE - SoonJung pH6.5 Whip Cleanser my favorite fungal acne safe cleanser!! its perfect for dry combo skin! ETUDE - Etude House SoonJung pH 5.5 Relief Toner a great fungal acne safe hydrating toner! better for dry skin, it would sometimes leave me oily at the end of the day. drunk elephant ————————— DRUNK ELEPHANT - B-Hydra Intensive Hydration Serum although this serum isn’t fungal acne safe, my skin seems to enjoy it. it has a gel texture and actually regulates my oily forehead DRUNK ELEPHANT - Lala Retro Whipped Cream another non fungal acne safe products. BUT doesn’t cause me to have breakouts!! its a thicc cream but doesn’t leave me feeling oily!! DRUNK ELEPHANT - Protini Polypeptide Cream Deluxe Sample again... not fungal acne safe but STILL didn’t cause me to have any breakouts!! the protini feels similar in terms of thickness and the over all feeling on the skin but it feels more “ wearable “ first aid beauty ————————— FIRST AID BEAUTY - Ultra Repair Oil-Control Moisturizer i was super excited to tey this out because the ingredients are fungal acne safe and the claims were ideal for my skin type but sadly i was disappointed 😞 it didn’t control my oil but rather left mw with this shine on my forehead! and it didn’t moisture my dry cheeks. epic fail FIRST AID BEAUTY - Hello FAB Coconut Water Cream this is a very basic fungal acne safe moisturizer i recommend to literally every one. i do like it and all but i find my skin still breaking out while i use this product. i would give it a 3 1/2 stars but i cant. CUROLOGY!!!! ———————— Curology - Curology formula Curology - Curology formula if you have fungal acne THIS is the treatment you NEED to try!!! my holy grail!! naturium ————— NATURIUM - Marine Hyaluronic Water Cream NATURIUM - Marine Hyaluronic Water Cream technically this moisturizer isn’t fungal acne safe because it contains polysorbate HOWEVER its one of the last ingredients listed so its not likely to have any affect. this is my FAVORITE MOISTURIZER!!! super affordable and feels luxurious and its amazing on my combo skin NATURIUM - Niacinamide Serum 12% Plus Zinc 2% my favorite fungal acne safe niacinamide serum!!! its affordable and it does exactly what it claims to do. literally cant get any better than this other lonely products ————————————- boscia - Green Tea Oil-Free Moisturizer this is a fungal acne safe moisturizer however its not very good at moisturizing or controlling oil 😕 but the packaging is cute i guess

My skincare detox!!
Hey awesome people!! It's been a while since I last posted because I was on a skincare detox (and ridiculously busy). Sensitive vs senstized skin: If your skin feels like it burns with the mildest products (for me, even spf and lactic acid) when it's usually not this sensitive - chances are your skin is getting sensitized. Sensitive skin is something we're born with, sensitization happens due to external factors. It's not necessarily due to just rigorous skincare but also external factors like stress, diet, UV exposure etc. So while skin detox is great, also remember to take care of yourself 💜❤️ What and why? I'm no skincare expert by a long shot. I keep things mostly simple and I believe we can tell what our skin needs. I started serious skincare around January this year (I know, suuuper late but better than never lol). My skin before that was mostly normal with bouts of dryness but no major sensitivity. So I was wondering why after skincare, my skin felt like it was hurting when it should feel better. Answer: I needed to give my skin break once in a while! The products, especially the ones with active ingredients, can sensitize skin - even if it is not already sensitive. So I took a break for about 3 weeks. I don't think you need to break for that long, I suppose 10ish days should be enough. I just got lazy to start again. BUT - I can definitely see a difference. For example, now if I use the The Ordinary - AHA 30% + BHA 2% Peeling Solution, it tingles less than before! How did I detox? Again, not saying this is the only way. I stripped down to basics. Cleanse, moisturize and spf. That's all. In detail: AM: Cleanse with either DERMA•E - Anti-Wrinkle Cleanser or SOAP & GLORY - Face Soap And Clarity Facial Wash (nothing technically wrong with either cleansers, they're both a bit drying with a bit of fragrance and I'm still on the hunt for The One™) Moisturizer: #Neutrogena - Hydro Boost Water Gel SPF: Australian Gold - Botanical Tinted Face Sunscreen SPF 50 PM: Double cleanse (because of spf): BANILA CO - Clean It Zero Cleansing Balm Original (love this Btw) And then DERMA•E - Anti-Wrinkle Cleanser (soap and glory is too harsh for double cleanse) Moisturize: FIRST AID BEAUTY - Ultra Repair Cream Intense Hydration And that's it! No actives, no exfoliation - just the bare mininum. Info: The selfies are somewhere around week 2 of my detox (not a selfie person so I probably suck at taking selfies but oh well 🤷🏻‍♀️) Hope this helps!! Cheers ✨

This moisturizer saved my skin!!
This is my ultimate night moisturizer!! I completely love this moisturizer, it is my perfect night moisturizer as it is thick and absorbs into my dry skin so quickly and it really locks in the moisture. At first I was hesitant as it smells medicinal (due to the eucalyptus) which isn’t my favourite smell however the texture, effect and soothing nature of oats convinced me this product is for me. I have always found I gravitate to oat based products as they are really effective for me skin. Packaging: This product comes in many packages. From tubs or tubes ranging from 2oz to 8oz. Personally I like my evening moisturizer in a tub. Texture: This product has a beautiful texture (see picture 2) it is thick, glossy and nourishing. Price: This varies on the size, but I think it is very reasonable. 2oz is $18 CAD. FIRST AID BEAUTY - Ultra Repair Cream I will definitely be sticking with this moisturizer

Just okay for such an expensive product :/
First Impression: I opened the box and WOW is this small for $20! I never shop at Sephora and the only reason I bought this was because I received a $25 gift card recently but I was at least expecting this to be a little bit bigger. Like .5 fl oz instead of .34 maybe? I have heard amazing things from dozens of skincare sites so I couldn’t wait to try it! Opening: When I opened the tin, it looked thick due to its color, but once I put some on it was VERY thin. When I use my regular Clinique Moisture Surge (which is super hydrating) it is very lightweight but still a little bit heavier than this. Smells great! Next day: I have to say the combo of this and THE BODY SHOP - Jumbo Tea Tree Oil has me waking up with the smoothest skin but lately my skin has been feeling much drier due to the cold (not on just my face) and I don’t think it is as hydrating as I expected it to be. The cream dries very quickly which makes me want to put another layer on and when I wake up I still have dry spots. Like I said I feel VERY smooth but not as hydrated as I’d like. Verdict: I feel like this would definitely benefit me better around the summer/springtime when I’m not looking for complete re-hydration of my skin and more of a moisturizer but I do not think this is the holy grail I was expecting it to be. Try it out if you get the opportunity because all skin is different! But for my combination skin and hormonal acne, it’s gonna be a no from me, dawg :(

Summer Fridays Jet Lag Mask- I
Summer Fridays Jet Lag Mask- I like to use this as an overnight mask and wash off in the morning Acure Blue Tansy Night Oil- maybe my favorite night oil of all time? I love everything about this from the texture to how it makes my skin feel. It’s a powerhouse and affordable! Sunday Riley Tidal Cream- I enjoy this cream. It’s supposed to hydrate and help fade dark spots. I haven’t reached for it enough to share my thoughts. ▫️ Rosen Tingling Mud Mask- I don’t generally have acne prone skin but I love the tingle of this mask and would recommend Rosen for anyone who is trying to find products to help clear breakouts and keep them at bay. Complex Beauty Pout Protector Lip Mask- This is a thicker lip oil that I like to spread on my lips before bed. I have been applying a balm on top to really lock in the mask. I live the vanilla tones!

DAY TIME ROUTINE: I first cleanse my skin with SPECTRUM - Jel Cleanser Blemish-Prone Skin (this was the BIGGEST helper with my PD skin journey) next I use The Ordinary - Niacinamide 10% + Zinc 1% then I use CeraVe - AM Facial Moisturizing Lotion SPF 30 NIGHT TIME ROUTINE: First I use a micellar water to take off my makeup, (I like the CeraVe one)CeraVe - Hydrating Micellar Water Next I cleanse with SPECTRUM - Jel Cleanser Blemish-Prone Skin I then rotate between 3 products. One night I will use The Ordinary - Retinol 0.2% in Squalane . Another night I will use PAULA'S CHOICE - Skin Perfecting 2% BHA Liquid Exfoliator . And another night I will use NATURIUM - Vitamin C Complex Serum Next I will use The Ordinary - Hyaluronic Acid 2% + B5 For my moisturizer I use CeraVe - Skin Renewing Night Cream lastly I will useCeraVe - Eye Repair Cream (also a big shout out to Hyram from YouTube! It's because of him that I tried these products and I couldn't be happier!)

Over the last couple of months I’ve become Cerave obsessed! In this post I’m just featuring the facial moisturizers. I use both the am and pm and they both leave my skin smooth and glowing.The am moisturizer is really neat since it has sunscreen.If this one isn’t thoroughly applied to the skin white streaks will remain and flaking of the product will occur.Although the bottles may seem small a few pumps (maybe 3-5) goes a long way.

DO NOT BUY PINK CLOUD FACE CREAM
DO NOT BUY PINK CLOUD FACE CREAM
If you’ve read the title then you probably can tell that I am not a fan of this product. My relationship with this face cream is a lovers to enemies story. I began as a naïve girl, who was head over heels in love with this face cream. I had thought I found my perfect face cream! Perfect ingredient list, amazing texture, left my skin soft and plump; however, 3 months into our love affair I discovered that my product had begun getting moldy. That’s right, there was mold in my face cream! After a bit of research, I discovered that this is actually a common thing for Herbivore’s products. Apparently, Herbivore does not use preservatives in their products, and mold growing is a result of that. Herbivore has actually recalled products in the past because of this problem! I then went to the website to see the ingredient list for Pink Cloud, and this cream is nowhere to be found, leading me to believe that there mat have been another recall. Absolutely disgusting. So just like in 500 Days of Summer, La La Land, and The Break-up, this story ends in heartbreak and leaves me pondering on what could have been. Until we meet again, Pink Cloud...HERBIVORE - PINK CLOUD Rosewater Moisture Creme
