MY CLEANSER COLLECTION : CRUELTY-FREE
here is a post detailing my collection of vegan + cruelty-free cleansers that i’ve used in the past year. for context, i have oily/combination skin that is not sensitive to fragrance. for basic cleansing/makeup removal: cocokind - Facial cleansing oil i purchased this about a week ago. the oil itself works well to remove even eye makeup, however it is CLEARLY scented which i don’t like for removing eye makeup. also, the pump for mine is either super clogged or doesn’t work at all, as i’ve struggled a LOT with getting any product out sadly. i will continue to try using it but would love recommendations for how to fix it. VERSED - DAY DISSOLVE Cleansing Balm i really did not like using this. i used it about three times but even that was too many for me. the texture is great but the scent is so overpowering and it is not eye-safe. also, it made my skin very dry and irritated after using it. i don’t use this anymore and wouldn’t recommend it to anyone with dry or sensitive skin. philosophy - Purity One-Step Facial Cleanser i have used this for about a month and i love this!!! it has a very light fragrance which doesn’t irritate me, it removes all makeup (even waterproof) with ease, it does not foam, and it doesn’t leave my skin feeling dry!!! Milk MAKEUP - Vegan Milk Cleanser i have been using this one for less than a week and i do find myself reaching for it very often. it has no scent and foams evenly and nicely without leaving the skin feeling dry. it also removes eye makeup very well which is a bonus!! specific treatment: THE inkey LIST - Salicylic Acid Acne + Pore Cleanser i have used this for about a year and it’s my favourite acne cleanser. i have reviewed and spoken about this many times, but it is fragrance-free, foams lightly, cost-efficient and super effective yet gentle. love!!! e.l.f. - Superclarify Cleanser i purchased this on a whim and have used it periodically for the past few weeks. it has niacinamide in it, but due to the effects of using it being more long-term i don’t have much info on it. it is scented (lightly, in my opinion) and foams with a nice cooling sensation on the skin. it has not left my skin feeling dry or stripped and is pleasant to use. PACIfICA - Kale Detox Deep Cleaning Face Wash i bought this about two or three months ago and used it for a week straight daily. it left my skin feeling dry and i ended up breaking out pretty severely after using it. it smells like kale and it foams a lot. it is eye-safe but after my experience i wouldn’t use it near my eyes again. i haven’t used it since the breakout. hope you enjoyed! #cheriecreator
VERSED-DAY DISSOLVE Cleansing Balm
My current PM routine for dry skin 🌜✨
In the order that I use these products: 🌜 First Cleanse — The Ordinary - Squalane Cleanser (not pictured) — lovely smooth texture, very gentle and no fragrance to irritate skin but doesn’t cut through makeup by itself ✨ Second Cleanse — philosophy - Purity One-Step Facial Cleanser — nice and gentle, non-stripping but contains fragrance so I’ll be moving away from this cleanser once I’ve used up this bottle 🌜 Serum — The Ordinary - Niacinamide 10% + Zinc 1% — goes on smoothly and dries down quickly, zinc controls oils on my nose and it’s helped by skin tone a lot ✨ Exfoliation — The Ordinary - Lactic Acid 10% + HA — I use 2-3 times a week and my skin it beautifully soft and glowing the next morning. I love lactic acid exfoliators as they’re gentle on my dry and mildly sensitive skin. 🌜 Lip Exfoliation — LUSH - LUSH Honey Lip Scrub — I absolutely love this lip scrub, it’s my all time favourite. It contains honey which is moisturising and has healing properties and cooling peppermint along with caster sugar so you get a nice scrub while still being gentle. I use this 2-3 times a week especially after using matte lipsticks to keep my lips soft and hydrated. ✨ Moisturiser — YOUTH TO THE PEOPLE - Superberry Hydrate + Glow Dream Mask — I use this as my overnight moisturiser, it’s rich and creamy and packed with loads of great ingredients to which keep my skin hydrated and glowy including vitamin c, hyaluronic acid and squalane. 🌜Eye Cream — philosophy - Purity Made Simple Eye Gel — Not everybody sees eye cream as necessary but for me being over 30 and with dry skin and sensitive eye area a suitable eye cream is a must in my routine. I really like the gel texture of this product and it’s beautifully hydrating but for me once it’s gone I’ll be looking for something which will also tackle dark circles. ✨ Brow Treatment — BROW CODE - Brow Gold Nourishing Growth Oil — This is a totally unnecessary step for most but I have incredibly thin and sparse brows so for the last week I’ve incorporated this brow growth oil and I can already start to see a difference. I apply one drop per brow and brush through with a spooly brush. 🌜 Face Oil — GO-TO - Face Hero — I use this last to lock all the moisture into my skin and absolutely love it. I have a full run down on this product if you want to know more. ✨ Lip Treatment — LANEIGE - LANEIGE Lip Sleeping Mask — I love this lip mask, it’s so smooth and moisturising for my lips and smells like sweet berries.

Empty — Philosophy Purity Facial Cleanser
philosophy - Purity One-Step Facial Cleanser PRODUCT A creamy gel facial cleanser that is supposed to be gentle and effective. It is marked as a universal cleanser. The consistency is a thicker fluid that has very little discernible scent (see second picture). OPINION This is another cult classic product that I have really enjoyed. It foams up and lathers really nicely and I’ve experienced that it removes light makeup really effectively. While I find that it can be slightly drying on the face, I use it as hand soap, a second cleanse, and even to clean my white shoes. I have recommended this to a few people looking for a good basic cleanser, and it is an especially good deal if you can get the jumbo around the holidays which tends to be a steal. This also lasts forever, so I would say its well worth it. I give this 4/5 stars.

My morning self care routine!
Good morning fellow Cheries! Or afternoon/night depending where you live! Here is my newly adjusted AM routine for my face. It was adjusted after a visit to a esthetician (see my last post) who recommended to me that I switch out my harsh Aveeno foaming cleanser with salicylic acid to something more gentle due to it drying my skin out. I got philosophy - Purity One-Step Facial Cleanserwhich I can’t yet rate because I’ve used it twice but so far it’s very refreshing and smells nice. I pay dry and move on to my next step THAYERS - Witch Hazel Astringent I love this toner because it clears up any dirt the cleanser may have missed, and doesn’t over dry my skin. Next I allow my toner to dry and use The Ordinary - Niacinamide 10% + Zinc 1% Which has been helping with redness and acne scarring. I haven’t seen them ease up in size but I have seen some scars ease up in redness. Lastly I use CLINIQUE - Moisture Surge 72-Hour Auto-Replenishing Hydrator This is the best moisturizer I’ve ever used. It leaves my skin plump feeling and full of moisture. This is my daily AM routine. If you have any questions or comments don’t be shy!@CheriePick

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.3 DAYS AGO
