Worth it?
Worth it?
The Boscia cactus water moisturizer is an ultra light weight fast absorbing moisturizer that gives thirsty skin a sip of instant hydration for a soft, smooth, and simple complexion! It can be solutions for dryness, dullness, uneven texture, and loss of firmness and elasticity. The texture of this is a refreshing thick gel that feels so cooling on your face. I have used this for about 10 months and really like it in the summer time because after being in the sun it feels so refreshing to put this on after. I got it in a set with two other boscia items that I also love! It is very hydrating, didn’t break me out, and gave me awesome results with my dry skin! I would recommend this to all skin types and to try out definitely in the summer for the really nice cooling effect! It is worth the $38 for 1.61oz of product that will last a while! The Kiehls calendula serum infused water cream is a weightless water cream infused with concentrated calendula serum! It can be solutions for dryness, dullness, and uneven texture! It is best for normal to oily skin types. The texture of this is a lightweight gel-cream, that feels like a drink of water on your face! I absolutely love this cream but is definitely geared toward oily skin types! I received it as a promo code on Sephora about 5 months ago and it is amazing! It is very hydrating, didn’t break me out, and I didn’t see big results because my skin is on the dryer side and this is geared more for oily skin types! I would recommend this to others because it does have an amazing texture and feeling on the face it also smells so fresh. It is worth the $50 for 1.7oz for people with oily skin! The tatcha water cream is recommended for oily, normal to oily, pores, and anti-aging!! It is an oil-free , anti-aging water cream that releases a burst of skin-improving Japanese nutrients, powerful botanicals and optimal hydration for pure, poreless skin! It works because it is a unique water-burst cream breaks upon application to deeply deliver treatment benefits, hydrating without leaving skin sticky or greasy. It’s powerful ingredient, Japanese Wild Rose, visibly tightens pores and smoothes skin texture!! Also it is, Non-comedogenic, Non-irritating, Non-sensitizing, Dermatologist tested, and Cruelty-free! Additionally, formulated without, Mineral oil, synthetic fragrances, sulfate detergents, parabens, and phthalates!! I love this because it is great for the summer since it does not leave my skin oily or greasy! It is a bit pricey but if you have had issues with pores or any other of its benefits I think it is worth it! It is $68 for 1.7 ounces. It also smells very good and the texture feels very cool to the touch! I think it is worth it, the tatcha water cream is amazing and is so worth the price, they have amazing ingredients and antioxidant properties, and they are always right on there claims! The Boscia is also pretty good and is at a great price point to! That is my second favorite by far! The Kiehls is definitely not worth $50 at all! It is no where near as good as tatcha! It makes my skin feel oily and greasy and just doesn’t do anything good for my dry skin! But the Boscia is an amazing affordable option of the tatcha water cream! boscia - Cactus Water Moisturizer Kiehl's - Calendula Serum-Infused Water Cream TATCHA - The Water Cream

Empties September- December 2020
Empties September- December 2020
These are some of my empties from the last few months. Here’s my quick review of them and whether I plan to repurchase: Neutrogena - Neutrogena Hydroboost Water Gel Moisturizer My go-to moisturizer during the summer and got me through til September. I did a longer review of this on my page if you would like to read. Would I repurchase: Yes; and I plan to when it warms up again! FIRST AID BEAUTY - 5 in 1 Eye Cream Also did a review of this. It was hard to say if it did much, and therefore I don’t have much to speak of. Would I repurchase: No; there’s other eye creams on the market I prefer with a similar price, if not cheaper. Briogeo - Scalp Revival Charcoal + Coconut Oil Micro-exfoliating Scalp Scrub Shampoo A cult favorite scalp scrub, and I see what the hype was as it definitely cleaned my scalp as a weekly refresher. I bought the 1oz size for $11 and was able to get about a month and a half worth of use from it (using it once a week). Would I repurchase: Probably not; the full size version is $42 and there are much more affordable scalp scrubs and clarifying products that give you similar results. boscia - Cactus Water Moisturizer I bought this to replace my hydroboost moistuizer as the seasons changed. I also did a longer review of this in comparison with Neutrogena as they’re both gel moisturizers. Would I repurchase: No; I wasn’t a fan of the tackiness and it didn’t seem worth the price point. fresh - Rose & Hyaluronic Acid Deep Hydration Moisturizer Fresh is one of those brands that is definitely pricey, but it shows in the quality of their products. You’re paying for a more luxurious feeling, and this moisturizer worked really well with both my oily skin, and the cold weather. Would I repurchase: Yes, and I already did! I got the full size version in the holiday set they had with their rose toner (which I also love). Not Pictured: HERITAGE STORE - Rosewater Facial Toner A solid, affordable toner. Check my page to read my full review of it. Would I repurchase: Yes; a great toner to have in my arsenal during the warmer months. Ayele&Co. - Sunflower sweets serum My go-to face oil (it’s called a serum but really it’s a face oil). I’ve been using this for years and it’s become a staple in my nighttime routine. This is compatible with oily, acne prone skin, and I truly think it’s helped my skin’s oil production level out. It helps seal in moisture overnight, and I think it’s given my skin a nice inner glow. Would I repurchase: Yes! Always! I cannot recommend this oil enough, especially if you have oily skin. Here’s to a new year and new beauty finds!

My go to moisturizer for the summer is the Neutrogena - Neutrogena Hydroboost Water Gel Moisturizer Its gel consistency makes it super lightweight and perfect for my oily skin, keeping me from looking like a greaseball. Plus it’s pretty affordable at $22. It does have silicone, which I know many people like to avoid in cosmetics, but I didn’t personally notice a negative effect on my skin. As summer became fall, I wanted something a bit more heavy duty, while still not being too heavy for my oily skin. I decided to try out boscia - Cactus Water Moisturizer as it seemed to be a similar water gel consistency. It also had hyaluronic acid, as does Neutrogena’s hydroboost, as well as natural extracts, and is silicone free. Both moisturizers are about 1.7 oz, but while Neutrogena’s is $22, Boscia’s retails for $38, which is a bit pricey. When applied, the Neutrogena moisturizer feels pretty watery and thin, whereas Boscia’s is thicker and the consistency is pretty similar to aloe vera gel. There’s a slickness when applying the Boscia moisturizer, which is why I think it comes with a small spatula to aid with the application. The main reason I took a star off for Boscia is once the moisturizer dried, it made my skin tacky, as well as it not being as good of a deal as Neutrogena. I think the hydroboost gel is a really solid moisturizer especially if you have oily skin. If you like gel moisturizers, I think Boscia’s Cactus Water moisturizer is worth giving a try, especially if are into clean beauty, which is the advantage Boscia has over Neutrogena. They both adequately moisturized my skin, but I felt the tackiness Boscia gave my skin wasn’t worth the extra $16. There’s also a version of the hydroboost for dry skin, so that may be a good alternative if you like the normal hydroboost, but want something heavier for colder weather. Have any of you tried either of these moisturizers? Let me know your thoughts! #cheriepartner
