My Glowy Winter PM Routine
After a full day of running around fulfilling the needs of my 8mos old (the adorable, pudgy little tyrant she is), my evening skincare routine is a welcome excuse to unwind, and wash off the grime of the day. It not only feels great, but it leaves me nice and glowy. I have sensitive, combination skin, and tend to get drier during the winter time. I like to layer up more during this season on skincare, so here’s my current PM winter routine! I’m not really a makeup wearer, except for filling in my brows and wearing sunscreen. That being said I always begin my PM routine with a double cleanse. I always go back to my tried-and-true oil cleanser, - Hadalabo Gokujun Cleansing Oil 200ml I love how gentle, effective, and affordable this product is and will always recommend it. Next I go in with Krave - Matcha Hemp Hydrating Cleanser . This cleanser is so gentle, hydrating, and never leaves my skin feeling dry or irritated. It does the job so well, with good-for-your-skin, barrier respecting ingredients, and it basically just smells like freshly brewed Matcha. For the quality it’s very affordable, and if you have sensitive skin, this might be a good cleanser for you! For toner, I’ve been using TONYMOLY - Wonder Ceramide Mocchi Toner I picked it up about 5 months ago; my skin was just irritated postpartum, and I was looking for an affordable, all-purpose toner. For 23 USD, you get 17oz of product, and I am just now finishing up the bottle. This is very much a no-frills, hydrating, gentle, cost-effective toner and has done a very good job of calming my irritated skin over the past months. About 3 times a week, I pump a few drops of COSRX - 2 in 1 Poreless Power Liquid onto a cotton pad and swipe it over my problem areas (my t-zone), then tap it in. I’ve been using it for about 2.5 months now, and definitely notice a difference in my pore size! My t-zone looks smoother, and my pore-size has been greatly reduced. I’ve also noticed less breakouts. I feel like I will probably repurchase in the future. I then follow up with a dropper of MISSHA - Missha Time Revolution Night Repair Probio Ampoule , mixing in one pump of GLOW RECIPE - Plum Plump Hyaluronic Acid Serum . This combo is so hydrating and leaves me super glowy. Apply GLOW RECIPE - Banana Soufflé Moisture Cream I love the glow this moisture cream gives, and the way it reduces any irritation or redness. I finish up with GLOW RECIPE - Avocado Melt Retinol Eye Sleeping Mask It doesn’t do much for my dark circles since mine are hereditary, but I love how hydrated my under eye area feels with this cream, and a little goes such a long way. What are your current winter routine faves?

Green goodies to repurchase
Today’s green goodies that I absolutely adore. krave beauty Matcha Hemp Hydrating Cleanser and Kale-lalu-yAHA - I never talked about Krave on my page before but I’ve been using the cleanser for a long time now and I’m going to say that it’s my favorite cleanser of 2018. Lifts everything your skin hates, leaving just what it needs—healthy pH, hydration, and anti-oxidant! I haven’t been cleansing in the morning and when I do I use just this, barely lathers and doesn’t irritate. Love love love! Now the Kale-lalu-yAHA is a helped me a good amount with my overall discoloration and spots while being gentle which I really appreciate. Cannot wait to get my hands on their sunscreen! innisfree Green Tea Seed Serum, Lip Sleeping Mask with Green Tea, and Black Cherry Body Cleanser - I’ve had the serum for almost a year now so you could say it lasts for a while. Filled with organic Jeju green tea that hydrate your skin from deep within. The lip mask on other hand is fairly new, a great substitute for my Laneige one and works just as well! Lastly the body cleanser leaves my skin with just the right amount of scent when rinsed, perfect for when I go out! I visited their first ever store in the PH last week and they had a pretty good selection. ere perez Quandong Green Booster Serum and Cranberry Lip & Eye Butter - the serum is filled with an antioxidant-rich blend of superfood ingredients for that healthy, glowing complexion. Definitely helps improve skin elasticity and a little goes a long way! Moving on to the other product, I use it more as an eye cream cos for some reason when I use it on my lips it dries out even more. Under the eyes though it’s perfect as it’s lightweight and deeply moisturizing! Works extremely well under make-up

Youth to the People dreams ☁️🌈
Me: DRY skin in winter (combo in summer), very sensitive/reactive/allergic, currently acne prone, also have a nose that is very picky about scents Onto my next bunch of brand minis, I tried the YOUTH TO THE PEOPLE - With Pride Minis Kit Overall excellent kit for the price, all good products worth trying, and generously sized minis! Least Favorite: YOUTH TO THE PEOPLE - Yerba Mate Resurfacing Energy Facial This one was just kind of anticlimactic for me. It smelled nice, it worked fine, it didn’t bother my skin, but I also didnt see much of a difference? Overall good physical exfoliator, but maybe physical exfoliators just arent for me. The next physical exfoliant I’m trying is the GOOD MOLECULES - Pineapple Exfoliating Powder Second Place: YOUTH TO THE PEOPLE - Superfood Antioxidant Cleanser I liked this cleanser. As a dry skin person I was SURE this would be too stripping, but actually it wasnt too bad! I am definitely more of a creamy cleanser person, but I can see myself loving this in summer. I like the ingredients, and i like the green juice smell. Overall ~4.5 stars. My next “green juice” cleanser to try is the Krave - Matcha Hemp Hydrating Cleanser The Absolute Best 😍😍😍: YOUTH TO THE PEOPLE - Superberry Hydrate + Glow Dream Mask literally a dream. Hydrated and glowy and smooth and so much more. I’m realizing that it is quite hard to get both hydrated AND glowing. This smells delicious and makes my face feel like a baby’s butt in the morning. Absolutely 10 stars all around. I’m trying out another vitamin c sleeping mask (KORRES - Wild Rose Vitamin C Brightening Sleeping Facial) but honestly, I dont even know why because i should just take the plunge and buy the jumbo size of this dream mask ☁️🌈 How do you feel about YTTP? I’m curious to try the moisturizers. I love the green smell but I’m guessing the superfood air whip moisturizer will be too light for me. Any dry folks who have tried both? Also need to try the superberry oil, especially if it smells like the mask! Also, which of their two eye creams would you recommend trying? Leave it in the comments!

Get Glowing Skin for Beginners ✨
So you’re getting into skincare and want to get the glow? For me, glowing skin is about overall skin health. Here are the top tips I have! I have combo skin that is sensitive and acne-prone. 💛Acne Attack My skin journey began with a lot of hormonal and cystic acne so I started figuring out what to do to deal with that. I currently give credit to the following for really making a difference: ✨Retinol/Retinal These increase skin cell turnover so they are essentially acne medication. I recommend starting very slowly with these at night with a heavier moisturizer because they can be drying. These heal my breakouts faster and prevent them in the first place. ✨Vitamin C I give this lots of credit for helping with any hyperpigmentation that happens after breakouts. So incredible for acne scars and overall brightening your skin! I love to use mine during the day to fight free radicals. ✨Sunscreen The true hero of skincare. If you’re not using this, nothing else matters. I recommend Krave - The Beet Shield which also has vitamin C. ✨Double cleansing at night. Buy a cleansing balm and gently massage your face for 10 minutes. Seriously you will feel the junk leaving your pores. This helps take off makeup, sunscreen, dirt and pollutants from the day. Always do this at night before a regular water-based cleanser like Krave - Matcha Hemp Hydrating Cleanser 💛HYDRATION I always tell people when they start, find a good cleanser, moisturizer and sunscreen. This is the core of skincare health. Sure the actives are great for specific concerns, but the basics can take you far too. When I’m looking for a moisturizer, I want ceramides in it. I currently alternate between these two: #FARMACY - Honey Halo Ultra-hydrating Ceramide Moisturizer[products]#[FiveStars] #CeraVe - Healing Ointment[products]#[FiveStars] The healing ointment is best for night because it is THICK and no joke but wow does it always hydrate my entire life. 💛Exfoliation Exfoliation is huge for glowing skin. I prefer chemical exfoliation because it is gentler than physical scrubs. You’ll want to look for anything with AHA, BHA or PHA. My favorite exfoliants are: FARMACY - Honeymoon Glow Serum Dr Dennis Gross - Skincare Alpha Beta Peel Extra Strength Formula 30 Applications Honeymoon Glow has AHA as well as gentle flower acids. I find this literally does give me a glow the next morning and is great for breakouts. It can feel a bit strong so maybe start slow and work your way up. Other things that helped me: ✨I stopped drinking ✨I drink way more water now ✨Using Pink Clay masks removes impurities when needed ✨Niacinamide (I’ll use this for texture with Vitamin C and yes you can use them together safely- there’s an old belief that you can’t) ✨SUNSCREEN AGAIN 💚The key is consistency in your routine, using products that work for YOU and adjusting here and there for concerns. #CheriePartner

First Impressions: Krave Beauty 🌊
I’ve been wanting to try out this brand for so long because not only did read wonders about its formulations and ingredients but also because of their mission and stance on environmental sustainability 🌱 💡About the Brand: The focus for the brand was to simplify your skin care routine to the essentials and to repair of your skin’s natural barrier function. Alongside simplifying the skin care routine, the company stands for the reduction of overconsumption. For example: using up your products before restocking- this process will help consumers to purchase products less frequently, thus reducing waste and mass production. ❗️ Krave Beauty has 6 products categorized into either core (cleanser, moisturizer, sunscreen) or supplement (toner, serum) ✅ The Products: Krave - Oat So Simple Water Cream Creamy. Light. Nourishing. Plumpness. I have normal skin leaning toward oily in the summer. When I look for moisturizers I’m not one to look for extra extra light ones. THIS ONE is a good medium between light and heavy. It makes me feel hydrated long after applied. Krave - Great Barrier Relief First thought was - hmm this smells different. I can’t really put my finger on it BUT I don’t think it’s a bad smell. And once you work it in, the smell dissipates. It’s a light weight creamy serum that easily sinks into your skin. I bought this because Liah claims that the Tamanu Oil in the serum will help with scarring and hyperpigmentation. I’m excited to test this out long term and see if my scars fade away! Krave - Matcha Hemp Hydrating Cleanser Amazing soft scent. I definitely notice the oat and matcha (since I consume those often 😂). The cleanser is gentle and lightly foams when you work it in. I let my face dry afterwards and sat with it for about 15 minutes and I did not feel dryness AT ALL. 💭 Overall Thoughts: As for a first impression, I don’t think I have any bad things to say about it tbh. No Fragrance. Nourishing Ingredients. Suitable for all skin types. IM A FAN 🤩 I’ll have to check in in a couple of months to give an updated review.

Protecting Your Skin
🌼 I have combo skin leaning more dry (probably because I live in Southern California which is essentially a coastal desert and also full of smog and sun so I need all the protection I can get) 🌼 My skin is currently in a pretty good place where it falls more in the normal range but I do still get occasional breakouts and bouts of oiliness and dryness 🌼 Here’s some of my favorite products for protecting my skin: 🌼 Krave Beauty Matcha Hemp Hydrating Cleanser: This is a great affordable gel cleanser that’s packed with antioxidants. Anything which Matcha in it is going to be packed with antioxidants. Hemp is also a great ingredient for keeping the skin soothed and hydrated. I like to use this as a morning cleanse or a second evening cleanse. 🌼 Youth to the People Suberberry Hydrate + Glow Dream Mask: This stuff is magic. It contains Maqui Berry which is actually the most antioxidant rich fruit in the world as well as vitamin C and moisturizing Squalane. I use this at night after my moisturizer and it leaves my skin feeling so soft and bright. My favorite mask of all time. 🌼 Farmacy Very Cherry Bright Serum: This is an awesome vitamin C serum to protect your skin during the day from pollutants, UV rays, blue light, etc. I really like this for my combo skin because it’s a lightweight gel that contains four different types of hyaluronic acid and keeps my skin hydrated and plump but not oily or sticky. I use this every morning after my toners and before oils/moisturizers. 🌼 Purito Green Level Safe Sun: Never forget sunscreen. It’s the absolute most important product you can use to protect your skin. I love this because it’s affordable, lightweight, and doesn’t leave a white cast. I apply this after moisturizer in the mornings (and don’t forget to reapply every 2 hours)

3a - 4a Curly Hair Tips From Team Cherie Calling all curly girls! Team cherie shares some of their favorite ways to take care of their natural curls.Dec. 23, 2020
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
