My Lazy Girl Makeup Routine
This routine is my go-to, everyday, makeup routine that takes less than 10 minutes. As you can see in my before photo, I have some redness and a couple of small breakouts. Typically what I focus on with my quick makeup routine is to even out my skin tone, add a bit of colour, and make my super blonde lashes & brows visible😆 1. First things first, I cleanse my skin with a micellar water and moisturize. If I have more time to get ready, I’ll go in with serums and treatments, but when I’m in a hurry I stick to basic skincare. 2. I always apply spf, and this SKINCEUTICALS - Physical Fusion Uv Defense SPF 50 is my absolute favourite. It’s tinted and gives such a nice healthy glow to the skin (it’s not shimmery or sparkly at all). 3. Next, I apply my FENTY BEAUTY - Match Stix Matte Skinstick (in the shade Linen) under my eyes, around my nose, and on my chin to help cover up some redness. This formula is honestly not my favourite for concealer, it’s quite dry and sometimes hard to blend but I’m just trying to use it up. I also have the highlight and contour shades and I do not like the highlight at all but don’t mind the contour shade (again, they’re both very dry). 4. Then I go over my entire face with my HALEYS - Re:Cover Pressed Powder Foundation (in shade 2.15) I just love this stuff. I’m a big fan of powder foundations in general because I find them so quick and easy to use. This formula melts right into my skin and I don’t find it to be drying at all on me. It has great coverage and doesn’t appear to be caky or too powdery on my skin. 5. I love a multi-use product for saving time and this cocokind - Chagaglo Bronze Highlighter is just that. I use a little bit of it on my cheeks to warm up my face and also dab it on my eyelids to add a little bronzy shimmer. It’s creamy and blends out well but doesn’t slide all over the place - love this one! 6. Next I added a bit of the ILIA - Color Haze Multi-Use Pigment to my cheeks and lips, I have the shade Before Today and it’s a beautiful petal pink. 7. Now it’s time for brows and I always use my essence - Make Me Brow Eyebrow Gel Mascara (in shade 03) this stuff is SO GOOD and it’s like $3, I always purchase multiples at a time so I never run out. This one is the perfect shade for me and gives my brows great definition, hold, and colour. 8. Next up - lashes. I just started using this HONEST - Extreme Length Mascara + Lash Primer and it’s awesome! It has a primer on one end and the mascara on the other. I’m super impressed with the length it gives my lashes and the formula is very black. 9. My last step is spritzing my face with my CAUDALIE - Beauty Elixir , this is a step that I never miss. I feel like it really blends everything together and makes it look much more natural. #CheriePartner
My Caudalie Favorites
Wanted to show some love for one of my favorite brands during today’s post! When I first got into skincare, Caudalie was always a brand I wanted to try. They focus on clean, sustainable skincare that leaves your skin smooth and glowing! My two favorite products from them are the CAUDALIE - Beauty Elixir and the CAUDALIE - Vinoperfect Brightening Moisturizer with Niacinamide ! Both are a little on the pricier side for me but they are lasting forever! When I use them in the morning it gives my skin that lit from within glow! I’ve found that some people love their products and for others, they’re just meh.

Believe or not?! My 3-step Morning Routine in Just 3 Min!🤗🤗
I believe you are just like me who don’t like a busy morning and have no time for a full face make up or a full skincare routine. It is hard for some to save time and finish the whole skincare routine at the same time. I just figuring out that by bonding these products together for the morning routine can provide you an overall antioxidant and sunlight protection with an easy and efficient 3-step morning routine. Sometimes when the serum is already hydrating and moisturising, I don’t use a toner but the MARIO BADESCU - Facial Spray with Aloe, Cucumber and Green Teait’s really refreshing and prepares for the following make up if necessary. It has a really fresh smell and I like how convenient and easy to spread it all over your face other than use a cotton pad to apply toner. Then I will follow with this COSMEDIX - Affirm Serum. This serum is super powerful and provides an amazing antioxidant protection for my face for the whole day. It has a liquid texture and has a very light sesame smell. It is not a cheap product though but I think that I would buy this again because it surprisingly solved my acne scar and redness problem with its anti-inflammation effect. A little product goes a long way so I think it actually worth it compared to many other so-called antioxidant serums. The last step of my 3-step routine isISDIN - Fusion Water Sunscreen SPF 50+ Oil-Free . Sunscreen is necessary for people with all skin types to fight photoaging. I have combination/oily skin and this sunscreen is non-comedogenic, it doesn’t cause pimples and provides a really comfortable and breathable dry finish. It also dries really fast and doesn’t leave any white marks on my face. One thing I don’t like is its weird fragrance to be honest but I can bear with that with for its affordable price. Time Is never enough and especially valuable in the morning so I wish this could help you to figure out what you may like to try in the morning to save time :P
Finally Win the Acne Battle💪
First of all, I am not an acne pore. I used to have terrible hormone acnes in undergraduate school. And today I want to share how I helped my brother to fight with acne pore. It took almost 3 years for the overall skin condition to change. But it worth it! These two products are the champion for this battle. Some of them my brother purchased himself and some of them are my products that surprisingly working well for him. The first one is actually my toner. fresh - Rose Deep Hydration Toner I got this rose toner in a set when it was 20% off in Sephora. The price is $63 and the value is $78. You can also get a 20% discount. It is very cost-effective for a brand such as fresh that is not frequently discounted. The name of the bundle set is Best Rose Buds. There are real rose petals inside. I bought this one because I was attracted by its look. LOL. After using it, I feel that it is really moisturizing and I feel my skin soft and dewy. Really love the sense, It just smells of roses. I really love the ingredient. This fresh rose water does not contain alcohol or added ingredients. The rose extract is very natural. It is extracted from thousands of vigorous Bulgarian roses. My brother doesn’t like the smell though. But he does find it supper helpful when his skin is irritated or supper dry. He used this softened with a cotton pad and apply it on the cheeks for 15 minutes. MARIO BADESCU - Facial Spray with Aloe, Cucumber and Green Tea This spray is is always must have calming product. It is very cost-effective and contains plant extracts and antioxidants, as well as mint extract that’s targeting the dullness of the skin. It is a very niche skincare brand founded in the United States. Their products are rich in natural ingredients, especially professional at targeting acne. This rose aloe vera water also contains ginseng and seaweed ingredients, so calming and soothing It is good for moisturizing, soothing and setting makeup. You can take a bottle with you, moisturizing + anti-oxidation and anti-radiation. Fighting with acne is time consuming. Theses two products helped my brother a lot along the way for calming and relief. This doesn’t mean it works for every acne pore. Stay good mood and be positive is always helpful to maintain a good skin condition. Good luck!

Is Glow Recipe...the Right Recipe?
Now this brand can be considered luxury with relatively high price points. Much like other luxury brands, a lot of the formulations have high amounts of fragrance which can be very irritating. GLOW RECIPE - Watermelon Glow PHA+BHA Pore-Tight Toner -Great source of proven hydrators and leaves a healthy glow -Antioxidant rich formula that is alcohol free. -Helps smooth texture. -Fragranced and the ph is outside of the ideal PHA and BHA needed to effectively exfoliate. GLOW RECIPE - Blueberry Bounce Gentle Cleanser -Contains a good amount of antioxidants. -Effectively removes dirt and oil then rinses cleanly without leaving the feeling of tight skin. -Stings eyes when used to remove eye makeup. -Contains fragrance which is potentially irritating and product cannot fight acne as claimed. GLOW RECIPE - Watermelon + AHA Glow Sleeping Mask -Lotion-gel texture that absorbs quickly and includes skin soothing ingredients. -Includes sodium hyaluronate and antioxidant rich plants. -Fragranced and packaged in a jar which can compromise the ingredients. GLOW RECIPE - Avocado Melt Retinol Sleeping Face Mask -Spreads easily and absorbs quickly which leaves skin hydrated. -Includes four forms of avocado which contains fatty acids and antioxidants. -Contains fragrance and is packaged in a jar which can put the ingredients at risk. GLOW RECIPE - Watermelon Pink Juice Oil-Free Moisturizer -Lightweight, gel-like texture which is perfect for combination to oily skin. -Contains fragrance. -It also contains two kinds of antioxidant rich watermelon extracts. GLOW RECIPE - Watermelon Glow Jelly Sheet Mask -Mask has very moisturizing and soothing ingredients. -It’s easy to use and isn’t overly saturated -Contains fragrance which can be irritating GLOW RECIPE - Watermelon Glow Ultra-Fine Mist -Fog-like mist settles lightly while refreshing both skin and makeup. -Includes hyaluronic acid and soothing extracts. -Contains fragrance. GLOW RECIPE - Watermelon Glow Lip Pop -Adds a sheer pink color that can be built up for more pop. -The balm doesn’t offer long lasting hydration compared to the best formulas of today. -Contains potentially irritating fragrance which can worsen dry lips. -Doesn’t exfoliate as well as claimed GLOW RECIPE - Papaya Sorbet Smoothing Enzyme Cleansing Balm -Lightweight cream that contains extracts rich with antioxidants. -Effectively removes makeup, dirt, oil, and spf. -Fragranced which can be irritating. Conclusion: This brand has too many products that have fragrance which can be very irritating to the skin. There are products with other issues such as packaging that can put the ingredients at risk and cause hygiene issues. Although I wouldn’t recommend this brand, the oil free moisturizer is actually pretty good.

My recent daytime routine for oily skin
Note** This picture doesn’t include my Netrogena sunscreen ** I always always wear it though!! I’ve gone through a ton of different products and a ton of different routines for daytime trying to combat my oily skin. This one is my most recent but it’s the one that has undoubtedly helped me the most!! Daytime ☀️ ￼I wake up and I cleanse my face with the Youth to the People Kale+Green tea, spinach, & vitamins face wash. This cleans my face of all the nightly skincare products I use and leaves my face soft but not stripped. (This is very important! Do not use a wash that will strip your skins oils if you have oily skin, it will just work overtime to replace it 😩) ￼I then spray my face with the Youth to the People Adaptogen soothe & hydrate mist. This gives my skin a boost of hydration but it also leaves my skin matte which is perfect! I really love this spray and I use this throughout the day as needed as well! ￼My last step before ☀️screen, (because honestly your daytime routine should be simple) is I use the boscia charcoal gel moisturizer. I just did a review on this moisturizer and I’m not kidding when I say that this is literally my holy grail for my oily skin. It moisturizes extremely well but the charcoal and it absorbs any oil and it continues to do so throughout the day even under make up!! This is a very recent routine I’ve adapted and it’s working amazing right now!! I don’t even have to reapply powder throughout the day which is the best!! 🙌🏻🙌🏻 If anything changes I will definitely make an update post! If you have oily to combination skin and you were looking for a routine that will help your face stay matte but still moisturize throughout the day definitely give this one a try!! 💧 boscia - Revitalizing Black Charcoal Hydration Gel YOUTH TO THE PEOPLE - Adaptogen Soothe + Hydrate Activated Mist with Reishi + Ashwagandha YOUTH TO THE PEOPLE - Superfood Antioxidant Cleanser
First few uses review!!
Adaptogen Soothe + Hydrate Activated Mist Is not one of the products I was super excited about getting in my mini kit but man was I WRONG 🤦🏻♀️ This is like finding that missing piece to my life! Ok, not THAT serious but my skincare routine really was missing this! Let’s dive deeper! YOUTH TO THE PEOPLE - Adaptogen Soothe + Hydrate Activated Mist with Reishi + Ashwagandha $ 42.00 for a 4 oz. bottle. I’ve used my mini probably 10 times since yesterday and it’s barely moved so I know the 4 oz. will last a long time! Claims: An ultra-fine mist that hydrates, calms visible redness, and evens the look of skin tone with antioxidant-rich adaptogens, hyaluronic acid, and soothing peptides—like a serum in a mist. Think of it as a mid-day refresh to your serum and moisturizer. We recommend 3 - 6 sprays / 3 times per day for best results. Key ingredients: Proprietary Adaptogen Blend: Ashwagandha, Rhodiola, and Reishi. The use of adaptogens as medicine, taken internally and applied topically, has been championed by Eastern medicine and Ayurveda for 5,000 years. Reishi, Pentapeptide, Shea butter, Ashwagandha, and hyaluronic Acid. This is my real first impressions review and so far I really have to say I love this. After cleansing and toning, I spray my face 3-6 times and let it dry. I can tell that my red cheeks calm down super quick after using and it leaves me face face smooth and super soft. There is no stickiness or any trace it was even there other than my skin just feeling amazing. The best part about this spray is that if during the day your face starts to feel parched just spritz a few times and it even somehow takes away the dryness AND the oily spots!! I’ll definitely use the entire bottle and do a more in-depth review after longer use but I have to say, so far so AMAZING 🙌🏻🙌🏻

Tatcha Camellia cleansing oil= I gave it a four star because I did not like the smell also I have used better cleansing oils from Ole Henriksen and Lancôme Rice polish= This was an ok polish it does seem to do the job but the smell was so unbearable like something that went bad. I was almost scared of putting it on my face. Water Cream= My fave because it is so hydrating your skin will feel like a baby’s face! ❤️ this so much! Nothing like it Dewy Mist= it’s alright
🕺🏻GRAPHIC LINERS 🎨
Hello! Today I’m bringing out my two cents and telling you guys about these awesome water activated liners I discovered! They’re from Glisten Cosmetics and they were very easy and forgiving to work with. The only downside is they’re not waterproof :( Also, just tried the Charlotte Tilbury - Magic Foundation Flawless Long-Lasting Coverage SPF15 and it is a DREAM. I have dry skin and this gave me enough glow and matte-ness in the areas that matter 🥳 MARC JACOBS BEAUTY - O!Mega Bronzer Perfect Bronzer used this bronzer for awhile, not splotchy or muddy. TATCHA - Luminous Dewy Skin Mist brings EVERYTHING back to life w/out looking sweaty ANASTASIA Beverly Hills - Blush Trio got this at TJmaxx awhile back for cheap. Amazing product and perfect amount of pigment Violet Voss - Flamingo PRO Eyeshadow Palette my tried and true 💖

I $130 On Skincare: 🏷 New Beauty Buys
A few weeks ago I posted about my one-on-one consultation with an expert from Avène. James spent over 30 minutes with me creating the perfect regimen for my skin. However, when I went to buy it and saw the $$ my jaw dropped. Over the past few weeks I just coming back to my shopping cart and finally just decided to go for it last week. Here is what I bought : ￼￼￼￼￼￼￼Avène - Tolérance Extrême Cleansing Lotion$32 this will be the second cleanser in my double cleanse system. First I will use the oil based Avène - XeraCalm A.D Lipid-Replenishing Cleansing Oil which I already own. ￼￼￼￼￼￼￼Avène - Thermal Spring Water Spray $18.50. I have used this in the past so I can speak to it’s worth. It’s healing mist that has soothing and anti-irritating properties. It’s the core of Avène as a company and has been healing skin for over two centuries ￼￼￼￼￼￼￼Avène - Tolérance Extrême Cream$38 this will be my new everyday lotion. Potentially replacing my current go-to VANICREAM - Moisturizing Skin Cream ￼￼￼￼￼￼￼Avène - Cicalfate Restorative Skin Cream $42. This was the first Avene product ever introduced to be through my dermatologist and it’s amazing. It’s used to establish and maintain a healthy skin barrier. I will be using this after work as a no-rinse mask. I work 12hr shifts as a nurse and wearing the mask all day really irritates my skin. Also, I will use as needed for eczema &/or rosacea flare ups instead of the Tolerance Extreme Cream. Total cost: $130.50
1st attempt at the foxy 👁 w drugstore products!
Just coz its spring in Australia doesn’t mean we ain’t allowed to rock the Autumn look 🎃 I was one of those girls who wouldn’t spare the minute to do eye make up until the covid szn (coz glam lashes were already on and that was enough for me!) Yes, i used to get my eyelashes extensions done every month! Crazy!). And knowing its not safe enough for me to get my lashes done, i figured id need some alternative ways to make my eyes pop more to balance the make up look. And whoopsies, i decided to finally learn properly (thanks to the internet) to do eye make up. And this was my first attempt at the foxy eye trend. Still need a lot to learn from you guys and im so here for it! warm hugs, ugggliz

🍇 Limited Edition Caudalíe Grape Water 🍇
This hot pink 6.7 oz beauty is ON SALE right now for $12.60 ( 30% OFF! ) on their American site us.Caudalie.com Normal prices: $18/6.7 oz & $10/2.5 oz This limited edition canister of the cult-popular Caudalíe Grape Water is covered with illustrations inspired by the natural trace elements found in this face mist! ➕Which include Potassium, Manganese, Magnesium, Calcium & Copper to naturally moisturize & maintain healthy skin functionality. About Caudalíe 🇫🇷🍷French company Caudalíe started in the early 90s, & their skincare line has always revolved around their all star ingredient: Grapes 🍇! Grape seeds & fruit are full of antioxidants, grape seeds actually contain some of the most powerful antioxidants in the world. Even grape vines can live for 100 years, thanks to the naturally produced Resveratrol that aids the vine's natural defenses & ability to regenerate. Couple & cofounders, Mathilde & Bertrand Thomas were the first to patent this natural active ingredient with firming & antiaging properties. Inspired by byproducts of her family’s winery in Bordeaux, they sought to collaborate with Professor Joseph Vercauteren, laboratory director of the Pharmacy University of Bordeaux to develop a line of skincare. They still work together to this day, & their first 3 products are still in production. 🍷Caudalie is a wine term that refers to the unit of measurement for the time the flavors of a wine linger on the palate after tasting it. What is it? (My personal favorite) hydrating face mist extracted from 100 % organic grapes during harvest in France. A long time Caudalíe best seller, this gentle mist moisturizes, soothes & refreshes the skin, while reducing sensitivity. Benefits: •Prebiotic properties: Helps prevent acne & support a healthy skin microbiome. •Moisturizes & tones the skin •Soothes sensitive skin Alcohol & fragrance-free. 100% natural. As with all Caudalie products, no parabens, phenoxyethanol, phthalates, mineral oils or animal-derived ingredients are used. CAUDALIE - Limited Edition Grape Water I’ve been using this for years after trying almost every face mist. I’m a major face mist addict & this is perfect for basic hydration anytime, even over makeup. It’s super affordable compared to a lot of mists, fragrance free & has the perfect “fat cap” mister that I’ve only ever found on 2 other mists (Kenzoki Lotus Water, now discontinued & Chanel Hydra Beauty Essence Mist & that’s $90 for less than 2 oz!) This mist also has only 3 ingredients... really only 2, because the nitrogen is just to maintain the aerosol spray feature. 💦It’s so refreshing on hot days—- 🥵or when I need a quick cool down from the heat flareups related to my neurological disorder.🧡 (CRPS) This limited edition canister is super cute! I’m a total science nerd & I love pink— so this hit all the boxes being one of my all-time favorite products period! Best mister, perfectly even & light (so important to me) +great $ for amount!
SOME NEW PRODUCTS
here are some new products i’m super excited to try out!!! PETER THOMAS ROTH - Cucumber Gel Masque i love this mask!!! it’s super hydrating and calming. it cools my skin down and it’s perfect after a day out in the sun or when you’re needing a little extra hydration. a little goes a long way. SUMMER FRIDAYS - Overtime Mask this mask is most likely not for those with super sensitive skin... the smell is a very pleasant cinnamon pumpkin. it’s both an enzymatic and a physical exfoliator. there are apricot shells in the formula, and they’re pretty large. the directions state that you gently rub in small circles for a minute once applied to the skin, and then leave on for 10 minutes. because i don’t like physical exfoliation, i usually just rub it in super gently for 30 seconds and then leave it on for 10 minutes before gently removing it with a warm washcloth. HERBIVORE - Moon Fruit Superfruit Night Treatment the smell of this one is a little much... a little medical lavender-like. it’s a thick lotion with a beautiful dark purple hue. when i use this, i use it as the last step of my routine and rub it thoroughly into my skin. the morning after my skin is super soft and hydrated and it helps any blemishes and acne on my skin. i’ve read a lot of really good reviews and a few really bad reviews about it molding, but so far it’s been fine for me. GLOW RECIPE - Avocado Melt Retinol Eye Sleeping Mask my fine lines are GONE by morning with the help of this. it blurs and tightens my under eyes, while also hydrating them and not drying them out as some retinols do. COSRX - Advanced Snail 96 Mucin Power Essence love this essence. it has a beautifully thick texture. it’s sticky and stretchy and one pump sinks into the skin. it hydrates and softens my skin, while also helping any irritation. i’m super excited to use the other products i haven’t had a chance to try yet! let me know if you want to hear about any product or products in specific :)

You MUST Buy These At Sephora!👍👍👍
I love Sephora! This is because I have bought so many great beauty products from this place. Sephora never disappoints. Nowadays whenever I want to buy beauty products, Sephora is the first place that comes to mind. Today I’ll be sharing just a few of the many products that I absolutely love from Sephora and wish everyone to give them a try! My Skin: My skin is very oily and dull, probably because I always stay up late and like to eat oily food. I also have enlarged pores that I wish to be gone and uneven skin texture. My face is always puffy in the morning to the point that my face shape and eyelids have completely disappeared. Product One: Skin Gym Rose Quartz Crystal Facial Roller A$53 SKIN GYM - Rose Quartz Crystal Facial Roller I have been using this facial roller every day since I got it from Sephora. Before I used it, I never thought that I needed it, but I immediately fell in love with it as soon as I used it on my face because of how nice it felt on my face. It has now become an inseparable part of my skincare routine. This face roller is made from rose quartz, a type of natural crystal. I heard that crystal healing has been used for centuries for smooth, youthful-looking skin. I can feel that my skin condition has been improving after I have started using this face roller for a few weeks. This is because it helps to get the circulation of my face going and it is a very de-stressing tool. I like to use this face roller with either oils, serums, masks, or moisturizers to give myself a facial massage and to increase product absorption. I also recommend putting it in the fridge overnight for a more refreshing experience, and to help get rid of the puffiness. Even though some people might find this tool to be a bit pricey, I still think that it is a good investment and this tool can definitely stay useful for a long while. Product Two: Fresh Vitamin Nectar Antioxidant Face Mist ($36 / 100ml) fresh - Vitamin Nectar Antioxidant Face Mist I have tried many types of face mist in the past and I find myself always coming back for this product. I initially did not have a high expectation of this product because I have not heard much about this entire Vitamin line from Fresh. I was genuinely surprised by how good this product operates on my face. It leaves my skin hydrated and with a glowing radiance. I especially love the scent, which smells like sweet citrus. The mist is very fine and sprays evenly throughout the face. It leaves a slightly sticky finish. The pricing is quite affordable because it is a huge bottle that can last me for a few months. I use it whenever I want to feel refreshed. It claims to protect the face from pollution, heat, and sweat so I also use it as a cooling primer before my makeup and as a hydrating pick-me-up throughout the day whenever my skin feels dry. It is enriched with vitamins C, E, and B5, which are great for brightening the complexion and hydrating the skin. Product Three: Vitamin Nectar Glow Juice Antioxidant Face Serum ($40 / 15ml) fresh - Vitamin Nectar Glow Juice Antioxidant Face Serum Because I love the face mist from the same product line so much that I had to try this serum out as well. Like the face mist, the scent of this serum is equally amazing. Its texture is very watery and lightweight. The product spreads well across the face and gets absorbed quickly. Whenever I use this product, my skin would become very radiant, clear and soft the next day. It gives my skin a youthful glow and any fine lines and wrinkles become less visible. It contains coconut oil, vitamins C and E, and beta carotene that delivers instant hydration and antioxidant protection. The pricing is on the expensive end. I used up one bottle fairly quickly since I use it day and night. It took me less than two months to finish it. Nevertheless, the serum was very effective so I will repurchase and recommend it to my friends and family.
A+ Vitamin C Products Alert！！😱😱
The hype for vitamin c skincare products is getting larger in recent years, so out of curiosity I also tried out some vitamin c skincare products. Vitamin c products claim to brighten the skin complexion, reduce the appearance of wrinkles, and rejuvenate aging skin. After using the Fresh Vitamin Nectar Glow Juice Antioxidant Face Serum and the face mist in the same product line, I can finally understand the hype, and would highly recommend those products! My Skin Concerns: I have extremely oily skin, and that leaves me with enlarged pores and uneven skin texture. I also have sensitive and acne-prone skin, so my face is always red. Because I often stay up late during the night, I have a very dull skin complexion. Product One: fresh - Vitamin Nectar Glow Juice Antioxidant Face Serum$40 / 15ml The first thing that I noticed about this product was its amazing scent! It comes in a watery and lightweight texture that easily spreads across the face and gets absorbed quickly, which is really nice for oily skin. I found that when you use vitamin c products, it is important to do a good job of sun protection because it makes your skin more vulnerable to the sun. With my sensitive skin, I make sure to always apply sunscreen even indoors when I use vitamin c products, or else my face would become very red and irritable. Results: I totally get the hype of this product! My skin becomes so radiant, clear, and soft the next day, it’s magic! I can see that there’s a youthful glow to my skin and any fine lines and wrinkles become less visible. Ingredients: Contains coconut oil, vitamins C and E, and beta carotene that delivers instant hydration and antioxidant protection. Price: Finally I just wanted to mention that the price is a bit expensive because it only took me a few weeks to finish the entire bottle when I use it day and night. However, because it is so effective, I will only use it when my skin really needs it, so I would still repurchase it. Product Two: fresh - Vitamin Nectar Antioxidant Face Mist$36 / 100ml I usually use this product before I apply the serum to prep my skin for later skincare products for better absorption, or whenever my skin needs a pick me up. It leaves a really nice glow to the skin and provides hydration, which leaves my skin feeling soft and plump. I also use it as a makeup fixer during the winter so I have a glowy makeup finish and helps the makeup last longer. It also has the same amazing scent that I love. The price is not as expensive as the serum so I would definitely recommend everyone to give it a try. Product claims: it is a refreshing face mist that protects your face from pollution, heat, and sweat. It contains vitamin C and E delivers antioxidant defense and boosts the skin’s nutrition level for a dewy, fresh-faced glow.

Thayers changed their formula
I used this as a toner in my routine and the first bottle worked great. However after reordering it on amazon I noticed it made my face burn a little . According to reviews they changed the formula. And i have my old bottle and can confirm they did. They removed the grapefruit seed extract and THAYERS - Rose Petal Facial Mist added more chemicals: caprylyl glycol, ethylhexlglycerin, and potassium hydroxide the ladder is probably the new ingredient making my face burn. The first pic was the original formula The second pic is the new one
Why Thayers Witch Hazel Toner is 👍 and 👎
Around April 2019, I added BHA to my skincare routine and was using it daily. My skin experienced redness and burn marks since I was not letting other products dry properly before applying my BHA. In my state of panic, I messaged my Curology provider right away. 👍 Along with my Curology formula, she recommended I purchase Thayers Witch Hazel Toner. It’s 100% effective against redness. Within a month, it soothed the burnt dark spots I had and I couldn’t have asked for more. I used it everyday for a whole month by applying the toner onto a cotton pad, gently swiping over my entire face. 👎 In 30 days what I learnt was that witch hazel is a natural astringent. So even if it’s alcohol-free, an astringent is a type of chemical that shrinks or constricts body tissues causing dryness. It started to strip away the surface layer of my skin until I noticed flakes all over sensitive areas of my face: nose and chin. Take a peek at my second picture where I try to highlight those areas. CONCLUSION: Overall, if you suffer from redness or minor burns then please use witch hazel toner until you need it but never forget the step of moisturizing! It works but you don’t need this applied permanently into your skincare routine. RECOMMENDATION: If you bought into the fad and have a big bottle at home, don’t worry. Witch hazel is so versatile and can be used for: - relieves minor cuts by reducing 🩸 bleeding - soothe razor burns 🪒 and diaper rashes 🐣 - spot treatment for acne spots and pimples - helps treat hemorrhoids for anyone suffering 🙏 - tucks medicated pads without the cotton pad. Hooray for postpartum mamas! The product has so many good reviews and its always easy to believe in the overhype. I hope THAYERS - Rose Petal Facial Mist works out for you if you’re using it daily but there’s so many more toners out there that is way better for your skin that can address your skin concerns without over drying. Let’s strive for happier and healthier skin. Thanks for reading! 🤩

HELP! I need a new skincare routine!
(Excuse my eyebrows I need to get them threaded) LOL So I’ve always struggled with acne, and I’m 18 and it’s still going on. I started birth control to help with my periods and acne about a little over 2 years ago now, and it has dramatically decreased my acne and helped so much with my flow and cramps. I just want to feel more confident because I rarely wear any makeup (foundation) on my face, and when I do I just want it to look smooth and not bumpy. I would really appreciate if anyone could recommend any products they use or have used. My skin is mainly oily, but it can be combination sometimes and sensitive when it wants to. Also, I don’t want to spend a lot of money on products. And what are y’all’s opinions/reviews on The Ordinary? Please help me! 🙏🏼 ￼￼My morning routine consists of: -Clean&Clear - Morning Burst Oil-Free Gentle Daily Face Wash -DICKINSON'S - Original Witch Hazel Pore Perfecting Toner -FORMULA 10.0.6 - Seriously Shine Free Mattifying Oil Free Moisturizer ￼￼My nighttime routine consists of: -GARNIER - SkinActive Micellar Cleansing Water All-in-1 Mattifying -CeraVe - Foaming Facial Cleanser For Normal To Oily Skin -Clean&Clear - Share NIGHT RELAXIN Deep Cleaning Face Wash -DICKINSON'S - Original Witch Hazel Pore Perfecting Toner -Beauty 360° - Vitamin E Moisturizing Oil -GARNIER - SkinActive Soothing Facial Mist with Rose Water -FORMULA 10.0.6 - Seriously Shine Free Mattifying Oil Free Moisturizer (I do use masks sometimes just like everybody else after I double cleanse at nighttime).
Mario Badescu versus Garnier Rose facial mist
ROSE FACE SPRAY SHOWDOWN 🌹🌹🌹🌹 Mario badescu has been a STAPLE of my skincare routine for the past 12 months or so. Since discovering their facial sprays and drying lotion I was a huge fan. HOWEVER: these products tend to be pretty expensive. They are cruelty free and paraben free. I’ve set out to find an alternative to my MB spray obsession. Enter— GARNIER - SkinActive Soothing Facial Mist with Rose Water My comments: I love this product! The scent is light and floral and leaves my skin feeling fresh and refreshed. The bottle is made from 30% post consumer recycled plastic and label claims to be vegan with no parabens, dyes or silicones. 🌿 Another thing I love about Garnier’s Rose facial mist is how they list their ingredients and derived substance on the back — instilling confidence and awareness about what is going into the spray✨
Trying New Makeup Products!
I did my makeup the other day and I enjoyed every second of it! I wanted to make sure that “i still got it” 😭. I tagged everything I used so y’all can find it easily. The only item I couldn’t find was Quickie by Colourpop so I made a tag for it, but it might be discontinued. I listed everything below so I could make sure the shades I used are specified.

"That's a lot to spend on skincare" ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ And that's when I knew, we could never be friends. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Honestly, sure, I spend a lot of MY money on my skin. Others spend their money on clothes, movies, cars, yoga retreats.. you get the drift. Do expensive items work better than others? Yeah, sometimes they do. And some drug store level products kick ass too. Here's a few of my splurg-ier items ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Puremana hawaii Radiant Glow Body Oil - An earthy blend of kukui, macadamia, and avocado oils that has restored my dry, itchy skin. My legs have always been more reptilian than human (hello scales) and this oil, when used every day, has transformed them. This isn't hyperbole, this is real results. This oil is in my daily routine.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Tatcha Dewy Skin Mist is a super fine mist with green tea, & red algae that is refreshing any time of the day. I use this sparingly because I never want to run out and it's sold out right now.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Tomfordbeauty Lip Balm. Yes. $40 lip balm. Deal with it.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

I never moisturized my body before this product
Believe it or not, I’m terrible at BODY CARE but super love my skin care routine for my face! 🤨 I started using this product this winter after the shower since I found I had really dry legs and my skin was getting stretch marks (or maybe I had them before and never noticed!) 🤭 I didn’t want to buy a lotion that felt greasy or heavy and it literally says on the bottle non greasy! SOLD!! 😍😍😍😍😍😍😍😍😍😍 It’s a continuous spray and smells like coconuts and summer! To me at least lol I got mine at target... SHESH I gotta stop going to target 😂😂😂😂 Retails for $5.99 I love that it comes out in a light mist and that it absorbs very fast!! ✔️ #cheriecreator Vaseline - Intensive Care Cocoa Radiant Spray Moisturizer

good morning skincare!!☀️
I have an updated morning skincare routine for yall! This routine is more directed towards acne prone skin, combination, but needs some well deserved hydration. Sometimes I wash my face in the morning, sometimes I dont. It really depends on how my face is feeling in the morning. Do i feel oily and gross, or just normal? On the days I feel yucky, I wash my face with PACIfICA - Acne Defense Face Wash . Toner bliss - Clear Genius Clarifying Toner + Serum Ive reviewed/featured this product many times on my page, so obviously, I use this as my toner for the morning! Essence COSRX - Advanced Snail 96 Mucin Power Essence I love this essence! Essences arent really a “required” step in your routine, but I do highly recommend it. I use am essence in my routine because I like to add a little bit more hydration to my face. It is said that the more hydrated your skin is, the less acne will develope. SerumPACIfICA - Pore Warrior Oil Fighter Booster Serum This product worked wonders for my oily skin and hyperpigmentation. Not so much for acne though. I used to have super oily skin and dark acne spots and darl hyperpigmentation on the contour of my cheeks. This product has almost completely reversed my super oily skin without drying, and its gotten rid of my hyperpigmentation. My mom is also using this product for her larger pores on her nose/cheeks, and I see a huge difference in the size. MistLAURA GELLER - Spackle Mist Restore with Coconut Water Again, another unnecessary product in my routine, but why not? I did not purchase this, it came in my Ipsy. I use this before my hyaluronic acid serum, so that it has moisture to grab and hold onto my skin. SerumIt°S SKIN - Hyaluronic Acid Moisture Serum This serum feels sooo nice and soothing on my skin. It gives me a nice bouncy, glowing , glass skin look. Moisturizer earthtoskin - Honey Manuka Calming Day Gel Cream This SMELLS HEAVENLY! Smells just like honey. For the day I truly love a very lightweight gel like moisturizer. It gives me a perfect amount of moisture that I need throughout the day. Face oil SKYORGANICS - Organic Rosehip Oil A oily acne prone skin must have, it really sets and holds in the rest of my skincare. Its a perfect illuminator/hydrator. spf!! cleen beauty - Mineral SPF 30 Face Moisturizer a absolute must have!!! The texture of this sunscreen is🙌🏼🙌🏼. Its also very moisturizing and doesnt give me a white cast! This can also double as my primer and makes my makeup look amazing!
