MINI MANIA 💥
here are some mini masks and moisturisers that I have, that I’m yet to try! I really do love mini products because you are able to try little bits of products to see if you like them or not! something sad is when you buy a full size of a product and you don’t like it :( are there any products here you have tried or have been eyeing? let me know in the comments! 🤩❣️ MARIO BADESCU - Super Collagen Mask belif - Aqua Bomb Sleeping Mask PETER THOMAS ROTH - Cucumber Gel Masque ORIGINS - Retexturizing Mask with Rose Clay ELEMIS - Pro-Collagen Oxygenating Night Cream TULA SKINCARE - Blurring & Moisturizing Primer boscia - Matcha Magic Super-Antioxidant Mask TULA SKINCARE - Detox in a Jar Exfoliating Treatment Mask proactiv - Skin Purifying Mask JUICE BEAUTY - Prebiotix Instant Flash Facial
belif-Aqua Bomb Sleeping Mask
This mask is very gentle and helps to sooth and hydrate. All around good for calming dry and/or irritated skin as well as great for after sun exposure, peels, waxing, facials, extractions, and any other activity that can be irritating to the skin. It has extracts of Cucumber, Papaya, Chamomile, Pineapple, Sugar Maple, Sugarcane, Orange, Lemon, Bilberry and Aloe Vera. As someone with dry skin, I use this once or twice a week. If you have oily skin, it is still good to have on hand incase of skin irritation. I definitely recommend this product despite it being on the more pricey end. Best when kept in the fridge for a more cooling and calming effect (but you don't have to).
PETER THOMAS ROTH-Cucumber Gel Masque
PTR Jet Set Facial! Is it worth it?
Peter Thomas Roth is definitely a more luxury skincare brand, but are the products worth the money spent. I tried these four minis in order to see. The results were hit and miss, however, this is a common occurrence since there isn’t a perfect brand. PETER THOMAS ROTH - Cucumber Gel Masque This is supposedly a calming mask that is supposed to reduce redness, however, the ingredient list is very contradictory. Citrus extracts are very irritating to the skin and are more commonly used in exfoliating products for their properties. While the product does contain very good soothing ingredients such as allantoin, aloe, sugar cane extract and cucumber extract. It also contains lemon, orange, pineapple and papaya extracts which as mentioned before, are irritating ingredients. The product also contains dyes which can also cause irritation. PETER THOMAS ROTH - Water Drench Hyaluronic Cloud Cream This moisturizer has a very unique soft gel cream texture that glides over the skin and absorbs quickly. It leaves the skin feeling very soft and hydrated. Mica is included in the ingredients which adds a very soft glow to the skin. This product is fragrance-free which is amazing! Included in this product are hyaluronic acid, a vast amount of ceramides, and glycerin. These are amazing ingredients for hydrating and restoring the skin. The brand claims that the product provides continuous hydration which lasts up to 72 hours. However, there are no clinical studies to support this claim. Furthermore, the brand recommends applying the moisturizer twice a day for the best results which is confusing. So does the hydration provided really last 72 hours? PETER THOMAS ROTH - Water Drench Cloud Cream Cleanser This is a fragrance-free cleanser with a very gentle formula that is more suitable for combination to oily skin. It cleanses the skin well without leaving a tight feeling. It’s a pretty simple cleanser so there’s not much to say. There are superior cleansers out there at a much more affordable price point. PETER THOMAS ROTH - Firmx Peeling Gel This product relies heavily on fruit based enzymes for exfoliation. While these enzymes can exfoliate dead skin cells, it is very difficult to keep these enzyme stable in formulations. This means that the results aren’t as reliable as AHA and BHA exfoliating products. This product acts more like a scrub than a traditional peeling gel and as such, it’s the scrubbing action that makes skin feel smoother. This is a very overpriced product for what is essentially a scrub. The brand also claims that the product can decongest pores, but a scrub is not a good option to use against blemishes. It is fragrance-free so a point for that! PETER THOMAS ROTH - Jet, Set, Facial! Kit Will I repurchase any of these products? Nope.

🥒 This or That - Cucumber Gel Masks 🥒
I love trying new face masks and found these 2 in my collection so thought I’d put them to the test to see which one I like better! For reference, I have normal skin with my skin concerns being acne, fading scars and dehydration. . SAVE:GLOBAL BEAUTY CARE - Cucumber Gel Face Mask Price: $7.99 for 1.7 oz of 3 masks (includes cucumber, gold and rose) Texture: Thinner Gel Mask Ingredients: Cucumber Extract (soothes and cools skin and helps ease puffiness) and unique blend of moisturizers (leaves your skin feeling smooth and silky). Claims: Gently draws out dirt and impurities from your clogged pores and lifts away dead skin cells. Leaves your skin feeling clean, refreshed and revitalized! Cruelty-Free Status: Are CF ✅ . SPLURGE: PETER THOMAS ROTH - Cucumber Gel Masque Price: $55 for 5 oz Texture: Thicker Gel Mask Ingredients: Cucumber Extract (soothes and hydrates), Papaya Extract (Softens and smoothes skin’s appearance), and Chamomile Extract (comforts and calms). Claims: An ultra-gentle gel mask that soothes and hydrated dry skin with botanical extracts of cucumber, papaya, chamomile and more. Cruelty-Free Status: Not CF ❌ . Overall Verdict: Both of these masks leave my face feeling the same way honestly! I don’t notice that much of a difference with either, but would definitely repurchase the cheaper mask GLOBAL BEAUTY CARE - Cucumber Gel Face Mask but have decided I’m probably not going to be buying masks anymore since I don’t notice much of a difference. The ingredients are probably better with the PTR, but is it really worth over $50 to be on your face a couple of minutes? I’d recommend splurging on a serum or moisturizer instead because they’re on your face longer! . #cheriepartner

Sunburns HURT! How to soothe & avoid a burn
Every year, your Summer trip has the possibility of being ruined by a painful sunburn. We all know that it can happen, but maybe we don't undertsand the why and how to avoid it properly. FYI: Sun damage accounts for 90% of visible changes in the skin! This is cumulative, meaning it all adds up over time (source- Skin Cancer Foundation). This shows just how important proper sun protection really is. Sunburn is caused by unprotected sun exposure that damages the skin causing a painful, red, itchy burn. This can range from minor redness to sun poisoning! UVB rays cause burning, whereas UVA rays penetrate the skin deeper causing premature aging. We need to be sure to choose sun protection that is broad spectrum and fully keeps our skin protected from both of these harmful rays. The sun doesn't just cause damage on a hot Summer day but all year round! You need protection everyday no matter the weather. I recommend a separate face and body SPF because formulations tend to be better when it is designed just for the face. •You must reapply! Be sure you are following the directions on your sunscreen products to ensure the best protection possible. Look for SPF 30 or higher. Dr Dennis Gross - Dark Spot Sun Defense Broad Spectrum SPF 50 This is a daily facial sunscreen to not only protect but improve already existing dark spots. It is a physical sunscreen option great for all skin types, including sensitive. It blends in nicely and feels hudrating. BARE REPUBLIC - Mineral 50 Sport Vanilla-Coco Sunscreen Spray This smells amazing! Unlike some other sunscreen sprays, it has clean mineral ingredients that are safe for all ages. It also has fruit and veggie oils to hydrate and give the skin a little glow! Did I mention this brand is also cruelty free, vegan, and synthetic fragrance free?? ☆What if you already have a burn?☆ -Aloe is now your best friend! It has cooling, soothing and hydrating properties that help calm a pesky burn. For your body, try the Bare Republic After Sun Spray. For your face, check out the Peter Thomas Roth Mask for an extra dose of skincare. BARE REPUBLIC - Hydrating After-Sun Spray A spray using aloe and plant extracts to provide easy to apply relief. I love this option so you don't have to touch a painful burn! PETER THOMAS ROTH - Cucumber Gel Masque This mask is a great option for soothing a facial burn or just increased redness from the sun. It uses cucumber, papaya, chamomile, pineapple and aloe to deeply hydrate and brighten the skin. I love this mask for calming the skin! It feels so refreshing. Have you tried these products to prevent or soothe a sunburn?? Be sure to wear your SPF!
