A great gel-cream for acne prone or oily skin
I stumbled upon this in a Shoppers Drug Mart and I was shocked because I had no idea Versed was available in 🇨🇦! I instantly grabbed a bunch of different products to try out. I’m so excited there is another solid & affordable brand to get from the drugstores here. So far, this has been one of my favourite products. Something that I really like about this product / brand is that like most gel creams, they are not for everyone and Versed actually added into their description on the site who this would be best suited for (people dealing with warmer weather or oily / acne prone skin types). It feels very transparent and I’m glad they point this out versus just claiming this hydrates and is good for all skin types. The good: + It’s super lightweight on the skin and didn’t break me out at all. + Once you apply this your skin feels moisturized but not greasy. Just a little dewy like they mention in the name. + Absorbs quickly into the skin and never reacts badly under SPF or makeup. + Even though it doesn’t feel heavy, my skin does stay hydrated throughout the day. + Key ingredients include (listed by highest in the ingredient list to lower): Glycerin (humectant that pulls water in), Squalane (emollient that hydrates the skin & antioxidant), Aloe Leaf Juice (soothes and hydrates), Cammellia sinesis leaf extract (antioxidant from green tea), Jojoba seed oil (another emollient) and Sodium Hyaluronate (an ultimate moisturizer also known as Hyaluronic Acid). + For those with sensitive skin, this has no fragrance. + I think you get a pretty good amount of product in this tube. For $20, you get 60ml of product which is 13ml more than you get with the Neutrogena Hydro Boost. + I actually really like this packaging. This squeezey tube setup feels a little bit more hygienic than the tubs of moisturizer (no hate, I still use those). + Vegan & cruelty-free. The not so good: - As with most affordable gel creams, this might not be enough moisture if you have any dry patches on your face. I do have a couple areas right now that feel a bit drier than usual and I do feel the need to use a hyaluronic acid serum to amp up the hydration. Personally, this doesn’t bug me too much that I need to supplement in those areas, but if you have drier skin you may want to try out another moisturizer that provides more heavy duty moisture. Worth it? For sure. You get a good amount of product (more than the average gel-cream), it has great ingredients, it works and it’s just $20. ☑️ Will I repurchase? I definitely expect to buy this again. It would be so good for travelling and just general everyday routines. I do suspect that come the colder months I will need something a little more heavy duty (can you believe it’s already September!) at night time. But come Spring, I bet it will become a staple in my routine. Ps I have combo, acne prone skin :)
VERSED-DEW POINT Moisturizing Gel-Cream
Since I began my skincare journey I have been moisturizing my skin with oils instead of moisturizers. The oils I’ve used and love are Squalane, Argan, Rosehip Seed & Seabuckthorn. I love them dearly and they are non-comedogenic (doesn’t clog pores) I have decided to use moisturizers now instead of soley oil. Sometimes I top my moisturizer with oil if I feel the need to. Some people think because you have oily skin you shouldn’t use oil to moisturize but they are great and very beneficial for the skin....but leaves you with and oily looking finish. I wasn’t sure which moisturizers I use so I began looking up some mositurizers which are good for my skin type. I came across a few on a YouTube channel called beauty within. I decided to try these two and I am in LOVEEE So the first one I purchased was the VERSED - DEW POINT Moisturizing Gel-Cream It’s pretty good. It looks like a cream but has a gel consistency and it melts right into my skin. It’s made with green tea extract and aloe leaf juice which is good. Green tea is great for acne and calms and soothes the skin. Aloe leaf juice is filled with antioxidants and enzymes and also great for acne. The next one: - Blue Cica Azulene Dew Soothing Hydration Cream It’s a little pricey but soo worth it!! This is also a gel cream that melts into the skin. It’s filled with deep sea water, spirulina and pentavin for hydration to help strengthen the skin barrier. After using my skin looks smooth like glass and feels hydrated. Both are great for am/pm use. Have you guys tried these moisturizers?? If so how do you like them?
Blue Cica Azulene Dew Soothing Hydration Cream
It’s summer so I’m looking to switch to more gel and gel cream moisturizers to keep my skin hydrated but with a lightweight touch. I’ve been using the @versed dew point moisturizing gel cream for about 2 weeks now and it’s a perfect fit for my summer skincare routines. It’s packed with ingredients such as glycerin, green tea, aloe, squalane, jojoba seed oil, wheat germ oil, and sodium hyaluronate to provide the skin with a refreshing veil of hydration. This has a lightweight gel cream texture that dries down to a skin matte finish. This doesn’t pill and layers quite well under sunscreen for me. I mostly used this during the daytime as I prefer a much thicker more occlusive moisturizer in the evening. It’s a great daytime moisturizer but I don’t find that it provides a ton of hydration on it’s own since I found my skin craving for a bit more. The hydration I felt was more surface level but once I paired this with a more moisturizing sunscreen then I’m set for the entire day and my skin just feels adequate throughout the day. A small tip as to how I get the most from this is I spritz a bit of water onto my skin before applying to lock in as much hydration as possible. I found this to be the upgraded version of the neutrogena hydro boost gel cream since it contains a bit more extra ingredients. So if you like that one, you should give this a try. This is best for combo to oily skin types but I don’t think this anywhere near enough hydration and moisture for drier skin types. Oh there’s no fragrance in this so there’s no scent either. Overall, this is a fantastic summer time moisturizer for combo to oily skin types. You’ll feel hydrated but not greasy as the day goes on. It works great in the hot humid weather that I live in. I would definitely repurchase this in the future. Have you guys tried this yet? If so, any thoughts on it? Rating: 4/5 🌟 #CherieCreator #Versed

Price Doesn’t Matter (Except That It Does)
Pause: price doesn’t matter in that it doesn’t innately affect the quality of the product. I used a (thankfully gifted) $160+ cult favourite serum and was comically underwhelmed with how horrible it smelled, how unpleasant the texture was, and how irritated my skin was despite the fact that I had used vitamin c serums just as strong previously. And then I look at a community-renowned $8 niacinamide serum that is, by all accounts, a decent serum... that my skin hated and I detested due to the tacky texture. I’ve used, and loved, skincare that ranges in price from $6-$300+, some gifted and some purchased with my own money. I’ve opted for lovely $15 moisturizers when I couldn’t afford my $60 favourites. I’ve paid extra for specific ingredients that are a bit more pricy. What I’ve Learned? Price means little to how my skin will like it. But price still matters. If your budget for skincare is small, your options similarly size down. But that doesn’t mean that there isn’t good skincare in your budget. Of course, opt for prescription if you can afford it- 1% retinol from the most expensive brand can’t compare to a basic 0.0125% tretinoin prescription cream. Look at your skin, do a bit of research, and see where in your routine that you can splurge a bit, or where you can go strictly utilitarian. If you have access to CVS, they have 40% off coupons regularly and CeraVe is bangin’. If you’re international, check out the go-to The Ordinary who ships internationally, or go through CultBeauty to get ahold of similarly affordable brands like Versed and The Inkey List 💰 In the end, price really only matters in that it affects what brands you opt for and how large your routine is. You don’t need $110 moisturizers or $120 exfoliants, though they often offer better textures and more well-rounded formulas. Just cleanse, moisturize, and slap on some sunscreen, and you’ve got your bases covered 💕

Skincare 101: the Basics
Three products are all you really need to care for your skin. Well, maybe not *you* specifically, but let’s be frank: most people don’t *need* a twelve-step routine to take care of their skin. If you’re starting off in skincare, your financial situation has changed, or your skin has been flaring with redness/flaking/breakouts, opt for a super simple routine for a month or two to see how your skin does without the extra frills. It may surprise you how little you need to keep your skin happy! • 𝗖𝗹𝗲𝗮𝗻𝘀𝗲𝗿: Cleanse with water in the morning, or opt for a hydrating cleanser if you’re oily, workout, or just enjoy cleansing often. Double-cleanse with that hydrating cleanser (and/or an oil-based balm) in the evening, or opt for a single cleanse with a gel or foaming cleanser. My milky faves are CeraVe - Hydrating Facial Cleanser and HOLI FROG - Tashmoo Water Lily Nourishing Milky Wash , while my deep-cleansing faves are CeraVe - Hydrating Cream-To-Foam Cleanser and PAULA'S CHOICE - RESIST Perfectly Balanced Foaming Cleanser . • 𝗠𝗼𝗶𝘀𝘁𝘂𝗿𝗶𝘇𝗲𝗿: Moisturize morning and night, regardless of your skin type! Look for products with ceramides and fatty acids to nourish the skin barrier. If your skin is more oily, opt for lightweight moisturizers like gels and lotions. If your skin is dry, creams and balms are going to be better for binding hydration and moisture to your skin. My faves for oily skin? CeraVe - PM Facial Moisturizing Lotion , VERSED - DEW POINT Moisturizing Gel-Cream , and PAULA'S CHOICE - Probiotic Nutrient Moisturizer . My dry skin faves are NATURIUM - Plant Ceramide Rich Moisture Cream , THE inkey LIST - Peptide Moisturizer , and DRUNK ELEPHANT - Lala Retro Whipped Cream . • 𝗦𝘂𝗻𝘀𝗰𝗿𝗲𝗲𝗻: The most important step! Sunscreen is the ultimate anti-aging product, so reapply every two hours y’all. My main loves for all skin types are PAULA'S CHOICE - Youth-extending Daily Hydrating Fluid SPF 50 and elta md SKINCARE - UV Clear Broad Spectrum SPF 46 . Those with dry skin, I’ve been enjoying CeraVe - Face Sheer Tint Hydrating Sunscreen SPF 30 , though paler folks may prefer DRUNK ELEPHANT - Umbra Sheer Physical Daily Defense Broad Spectrum Sunscreen SPF 30 . What’s your fave step? What extra step would you add in that’s not featured here? 👀 Keep up with the tag #Skincare101 to follow along this guide I’ll be posting to cover some basic concepts in skincare!

My Mental Wellness Improved Through My Self AcceptanceWhen I was around 13 or 14 years old, I remember routinely taking one of my older sister’s black eyeliner pencils before school every morning. I’d arrive early so that I could slip away to the girl’s bathroom to apply a single black line to my eyelids. My parents didn’t allow me to wear any makeup at the time. Although this smudgy line on my eyelids didn’t make me look all that much different, I never felt comfortable at school without it. My teenage mind convinced myself that I needed some sort of cosmetic symbol in order to appropriately express my femininity. Up until that point in my life, society had told girls that looked like me - tall, Black, and with kinky hair - that we somehow weren’t as beautiful as the other girls. For far too long, I believed it too.Feb. 17
