Battle of the Creams: Cerave v. First Aid Beauty
I used Cerave Moisturizing Cream at night for the past 3 years, but in March, I got sucked into skincare Youtube and felt like I needed to upgrade what I thought was a boring insufficient routine 😅 I heard such good things about the FAB Ultra Repair Cream, and bought a travel size. FIRST AID BEAUTY - Ultra Repair Cream Intense Hydration Texture: the texture is quite whipped. The product feels a bit heavy on the skin at first, but dries down quickly to a matte finish. Scent: this product does not contain synthetic fragrance, but it does contain eucalyptus oil. To me, the product smells like milk and eucalyptus. Application: the travel size (2 oz) comes in a squeeze tube, as does the 8 oz. The other sizes come in tubs. Results: For ~3 months, I used the FAB day and night as my moisturizer. At night, I would mix it with 2-3 drops of squalane oil. At first, my skin loved it! Unlike many of the other daytime moisturizers I tried, FAB kept my skin hydrated all day and I wouldn’t be peeling or flaking on the parts of my skin that are dry. I liked it so much that after I ran out of the 2oz, I spent $42 on the 8oz tube in the photo. But I started to get small, uniform itchy bumps on my cheeks—which was unusual because I rarely break out there. I saw my dermatologist, who confirmed that it was fungal acne ☹️ To be honest, I’m not sure if it was the squalane oil I was using or the FAB that was causing this, but after reading other reviews that claimed FAB caused fungal acne, I suspect it was the FAB that did it for me. Plus I have used the Cerave with squalane, and didn’t experience fungal acne from that. CeraVe - Moisturizing Cream For Normal To Dry Skin Texture: this product is a heavy cream, but it is tacky rather than greasy. It sinks nicely into the skin and has a slightly shiny, glazed donut finish. To me, it feels too heavy to use during the day, but I like that feel for nighttime. Scent: this product is scentless and doesn’t have any synthetic fragrance or fragrant oils. Application: the full-size version of this product comes in a tub, but you can buy one with the pump or without. I prefer the pump so I don’t have to dip my fingers in the tub (even though it is safe to do so thanks to preservatives 🙂). Results: I have used this cream for 3 years and have never had any irritation or acne from this product. I have tried mixing serums and squalane into this, and they mix nicely without pilling. I will say that everyone’s skin is different—I am combo/acne prone, my bf has dry skin and Cerave stings his skin. So as always, you may want to buy a small size and patch test. Price-wise, Cerave is much cheaper at $15 for 12oz. 🚨 Overall thoughts: What I learned was the same thing @lilyclintonand @veedimsaid in lily’s review of Cerave vs FAB (go read! I was like, “YES, THANK YOU!” 😂): more expensive doesn’t always mean it’s a better product!

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 ✨
The Ordinary-AHA 30% + BHA 2% Peeling Solution
My Favorite Serums (Dry & Senstive Skin) 🤩
When I shops for a serum, there are two things I evaluate before spending the 💵: * Can it help dry skin? * Will it irritate me? Well these two products are what been saving my skin the past few months from stress and dryness. They don’t do anything fancy other than hydrate my skin & exfoliate to give me a glow 🌟 The Ordinary - Hyaluronic Acid 2% + B5 can be purchased for just $6 at ULTA and is the best HA I have used so far. It plumps my skin, packs in hydration, and is non-irritating. The texture is like a lightweight gel and little goes a long way. I apply it by pressing it into my skin after I have applied my toner. HERBIVORE - Prism 12% AHA + 3% BHA Exfoliating Glow Serum is an amazing AHA/BHA exfoliator and perfect for those of us with dry skin. It has a very similar texture to the HA from The Ordinary, and feels just as hydrating too. This product is a bit on the pricier side [retailing for $54] so if this is out of your price range, my next fave exfoliating serum would be The Ordinary - Lactic Acid 5% + HA ⭐️ The Prism serum I typically apply during my night routine and the Hyaluronic Acid is used on an everyday basis. I love using both with my HONEST - Calm On Foaming Cream Cleanserand my FIRST AID BEAUTY - Ultra Repair Wild Oat Hydrating Toner 💛 I usually follow up with the FIRST AID BEAUTY - Ultra Repair Cream Intense Hydration as my moisturizer 🧴 ✨ What are your favorite serums? #CheriePartner

Does Lamer worth it? Is FAB repair cream a dupe for Lamer Moisture Cream?
I am sensitive, dry skin. When the season changes, my skin is prone to acne or peeling. Today I will share with you two repair creams and discuss whether FAB can be used as Lamer's Dupe. LA MER - LA MER Moisturizing CreamAU$242/40ml We all know, Lamer has their miracle broth, which, and their miracle broth consists of fermented sea kelp vitamins and minerals, helps your skin retain the water in it and keep it plumps and moisturize throughout the day or overnight whenever you're using it. I prefer to use this cream in wintertime or when I am traveling because the air is dehydrated. It is just a heavy dose of moisture when I am using this one, and I know that it's going to do the job and get my skin hydrated. I have been using this cream for at least two years now, and I love it. When you do use this product, you should remember to take a little bit on your finger when take that teeny tiny bit again rub it between your fingers and until to no longer see any white. It should look like a balm at this point. When it does look translucent, that's when you need to press it into your skin. This cream not only helps your skin to retain moisture but also helps calm your skin. FIRST AID BEAUTY - Ultra Repair Cream Intense Hydration AU$ 44/30ml I bought this cream at Sephora. Its texture and method of use are very similar to Lamer. You need to rub it by your fingers and then press it into your face before using it. Its repairing ability and moisturizing ability are a little weaker than Lamer, but the effect is also excellent. After I use it for a week, my skin has calmed down. Technically it's not a dupe, as Lamer process more ingredients than FAB. But If you look at the ingredients list through when it comes to the actual moisturizers in these two products, the base ingredients are almost identical. There are mineral oil, petrolatum, glycerin, microcrystalline, and so on. And They almost smell similar. The Lamer I could touch more of a costly scent to it, but they're very when you feel them in the actual jars, they smell almost identical. The texture of the Lamer is thick. You have to warm it up. The texture of the FAB is similar to the Lamer, and I can't see much of a difference. I would never tell somebody with really oily skin to use these two products because the texture of these two creams is too thick.
LA MER-LA MER Moisturizing Cream
KISS DRY SKIN GOODBYE!
This is an intense hydration skin protectant formulated with soothing ingredients such as Colloidal Oatmeal, Allantoin, Ceramide 3 and the FAB Antioxidant Booster, which provides immediate relief and visible improvement for parched skin and it is clinically proven to increase hydration. Swipe & see that soft, rich and whipped texture of this cream, I love it! It just melts on the skin without any greasiness. I tried it first on my body wherein I have some dry patches and itchiness; guess what? I was surprised how it soothes my skin from first use. Since this claims to be safe to use on face, I tried it as a moisturizer and it works. It is very calming and hydrating on the skin. However, since I do have oily/combo skin it tends to be oily at the mid-day so I guess I will use this on days when my skin have any irritation or dryness. This is definitely a head-to-toe moisturizer that can be used by the whole family (safe even for babies) since it has no paraben, harsh chemical, colorants, and artificial fragrance. It has eucalyptus oil which gives a natural relaxing scent. I highly recommend this if you need instant relief and long-term hydration for dry, distressed skin, or even on eczema. This is my first FAB product and I am hooked.
