Week 1 of Barrier Repair
Week 1 of Barrier Repair
All through winter (New Zealand) I experienced dry, tight, flaky, red, sensitive, reactive, itchy and eczema prone skin. What a mouthful! Then thank you to an ad on instagram I came across this app, and I learnt sooooo much about my skin. I spent endless hours (when I could with a toddler) going through post after post on this app, taking notes, saving products and doing my own research. I realised I had compromised my skin barrier with endless products and a steroid cream prescribed by my doctor for my eczema (eek I know). I culled my whole routine as nothing I was using was working for me and purchased the basics, mind you I had to wait a while for some products to come from overseas as they are not available here (and some I couldn’t get a hold of at all so had to find similar products). My routine in Week 1: AM CLEANSE: splashed my face with water TREATMENT: The Ordinary - Hyaluronic Acid 2% + B5 right now I am unsure as to how effective this is, my skin feels supple and soft but for any long term benefits I will have to wait and see. MOISTURISER: The Ordinary - Natural Moisturizing Factors + HA EYE CREAM: CeraVe - Eye Repair Cream with it only being week one, I haven’t seen anything dramatic happen yet SUNSCREEN: PAULA'S CHOICE - Calm Mineral Moisturizer Broad Spectrum SPF 30 I am still unsure about this as it leaves me with a white case initially but that fades after five or so minutes. PM CLEANSE: CeraVe - Hydrating Face Cleanser For Normal To Dry Skin so far this has been amazing, doesn’t leave my skin feeling tight. Feels really hydrating. I massage it in for about 1min before rinsing. TREATMENT: The Ordinary - Hyaluronic Acid 2% + B5 EYE CREAM: CeraVe - Eye Repair Cream MOISTURISER: The Ordinary - Natural Moisturizing Factors + HA I was finding that this was just not hydrating enough for my skin and left me tight, and I needed to reapply a few hours later as I headed to bed. But still waking up quite dry in the morning. After a few days I realised I probably wasnt getting my sunscreen off properly and decided to add in a step in the PM. PRE-CLEANSE: BANILA CO - Clean It Zero Cleansing Balm Purifying I had this for removing makeup, a purchase I made on the whim about a year ago as I hated using wipes etc. I only realised after adding this step back in that this was making me reactive and I would wake up itchy with what looked like hives around my eyes/cheek. I culled both products (luckily I only purchased the 30ml of the NMF cream so I had pretty much used it up) and did some more research. See Week 2 of Barrier Repair for more...

3 Paula Choice Skincare Routines ❄️☃️❄️
3 Paula Choice Skincare Routines ❄️☃️❄️
Hey guys!!! I love Paulas choice products especially the PAULA'S CHOICE - Omega+ Complex Moisturizer and PAULA'S CHOICE - 0.3% Retinol + 2% Bakuchiol Treatment !! Over on their IG they posted suggested skincare routines created by their client social services consultant Allie, I wanted to repost a few today for dry and dehydrated combo skin since it's cold outside which can often lead to dry/dehydrated skin. Paulas choice is another great brand to reach out to if you have questions!!! Just pick the products in black for an essential routine and include the products labeled in white for a full advanced routine. I do want to point out that there is NO perfect skincare routine, you need to listen to your skin. If you are feeling really dry you might want to add a heavier ceramide moisturizer or if your skin is starting to feel irritated back off on your exfoliation. Use these suggestions as a way to get started but still adjust or take away products by how your skin feels. Do you wish more companies would post suggested skincare routines based on skin type?? #cheriecreator

My skincare journey has been rough the past few years (check first post made for details but basically I have sensitive, reactive skin) and I have finally found something that works thanks to this app and all the wonderful people on here. I have done lots of reading and learning!! I am wanting to extend my routine; add an eye cream for dark circles in the AM and maybe a vitamin c - am looking at The Ordinary - Magnesium Ascorbyl Phosphate 10%as I have had bad experiences with vitamin c previously and want to go slow. And maybe THE inkey LIST - Polyhydroxy Acid (PHA) Gentle Exfoliating Toner I have noticed that my face doesn’t like niacinamide either. Both CeraVe AM and PM creams contain this and my skin reacted, as well as with another brand I used that contained it. Please help, any and all suggestions/helpful hints welcome 😊 This is my current routine. I have reviewed these products in previous posts. AM CLEANSE: Water SERUM: The Ordinary - Hyaluronic Acid 2% + B5 makes the skin feel so soft and supple. A great base! EYE CREAM: SEPHORA COLLECTION - Brightening Eye Cream – Hydrate & Depuff I have come back to this after a long and painful journey with eye creams. Great for hydration and fine lines but would still like an eye cream to use in the AM that helps with dark circles. MOISTURISE: The Ordinary - Natural Moisturizing Factors + HA have just recently started using this as my DRUNK ELEPHANT - Lala Retro Whipped Cream is finished. Loving it so far. Not as heavy as the DE cream but perfect for going into the warmer months ahead. SUNSCREEN: PAULA'S CHOICE - Calm Mineral Moisturizer Broad Spectrum SPF 30 this has really helped with reducing the redness i get on my cheeks. PM CLEANSE: CeraVe - Hydrating Face Cleanser For Normal To Dry Skin feels so great and leaves the skin feeling hydrated well after use! Previous cleansers always left me feeling tight immediately after use. I can now wash my face at the beginning of a shower and it stays hydrated till I get out (although I still prefer as my last step) EYE CREAM: SEPHORA COLLECTION - Brightening Eye Cream – Hydrate & Depuff MOISTURISE: The Ordinary - Natural Moisturizing Factors + HA SEAL THE DEAL: The Ordinary - 100% Plant-Derived Squalane I was using this before the DE cream and have recently learned that it is meant to go last to seal everything in. I use about 4-5 drops and pat it across my face. Twice a week (Sun & Wed), after the eye cream, I use The Ordinary - Hyaluronic Acid 2% + B5 and then PAULA'S CHOICE - 10% Azelaic Acid Booster I am finding that it has helped reduce the redness across my cheeks. It has only been 2 weeks of using this so too early to review this product.

I have learnt a lot over the past few months since joining cherie and am taking my skin more seriously now that I’m 30. I learnt my skin barrier had seriously been compromised, and I may actually not be as sensitive as I thought. I learnt that my skin most likely isn’t dry but actually dehydrated!! What a learning curve that was! Always, ALWAYS, research the best way to use products before using them. Search the product you are interested in on this app and go through the reviews and see what has worked and what hasn’t. Saves you a lot of trial and error! And disappointment! Always start slow with a new product! Go once a week for two weeks and then build up by adding one more day each week. This helps your skin adjust and figure out what works for you. If you flick through the photos above, you will see before and after photos of both sides of my face. Although it looks better, I still have a fair way to go. My routine as of October 13, 2020: MORNING I don’t use a cleanser to wash my face, I wash with water and then follow with The Ordinary - Hyaluronic Acid 2% + B5 I apply this directly to my wet face after rinsing it. I continue massaging until I feel my skin is getting dry but still slightly damp. While my face is still slightly damp I apply SEPHORA COLLECTION - Brightening Eye Cream – Hydrate & Depuff and The Ordinary - Natural Moisturizing Factors + HA and then wait about 5 minutes before applying PAULA'S CHOICE - Calm Mineral Moisturizer Broad Spectrum SPF 30 NIGHT I have, in the last week, jumped back onto the double cleanse bandwagon as it is getting warmer in the Southern Hemisphere now and I tend to get hot and sweaty-ish (especially when running around after a toddler all day). I use The Ordinary - Squalane Cleanser massage this is for a few minutes, when I feel it start to loosen up I add in water and rinse it off. If my skin is feeling particularly dehydrated I skip the first cleanse and go straight to CeraVe - Hydrating Face Cleanser For Normal To Dry Skin Again, I leave my face wet and massage in The Ordinary - Hyaluronic Acid 2% + B5 while my skin is still slightly damp I put on SEPHORA COLLECTION - Brightening Eye Cream – Hydrate & Depuff and PAULA'S CHOICE - 10% Azelaic Acid Booster This has really helped calm down my irritated skin and helped smooth out some bumps. I then pat on about 6 drops of The Ordinary - 100% Plant-Derived Squalane and after 5 minutes apply The Ordinary - Natural Moisturizing Factors + HA I am looking to add in a vitamin c product. I might be slightly sensitive to vitamin c, so please recommend products that are low in concentration and good for sensitive skin 😘😘

Week 3 of Barrier Repair
Week 3 of Barrier Repair
Week 3 Routine This week has been a bit bizarre, a few things happened 1) The season has changed from winter to spring 2) I got my period 3) I over-indulged in home baking/chocolate 4) I added PAULA'S CHOICE - Omega + Complex Serum to my routine Now you’re probably thinking so what? Well my skin has been a bit reactive this week. My eyes are puffy/cheekbones have been itchy and my skin looks tight under my eyes near my nose. I have been outside more (my toddler loves the outdoors and I would rather he outside than inside getting cabin fever, it was a wet winter which meant he didn’t get a lot of outside time), the air is still a bit nippy, so it could be that. I have noticed my skin gets drier around and during my period, so it could be that. I think I may be slightly allergic to too much baking/chocolate so it could be that. And I added something new, so it could be that. Ugh the dilemma!! Will go back to basics (week 2) and try the Omega+ again once all is calm. AM CLEANSE: washed face with water TREATMENT: The Ordinary - Hyaluronic Acid 2% + B5 EYE CREAM: CeraVe - Eye Repair Cream this has definitely been underwhelming!! Will continue to use till it is finished but on the look out for a new eye cream. MOISTURISER: DRUNK ELEPHANT - Lala Retro Whipped Cream cannot praise this product enough! See week 2’s post. SUNSCREEN: PAULA'S CHOICE - Calm Mineral Moisturizer Broad Spectrum SPF 30 I get a slight white cast for about 5mins, but has been amazing at helping calm my skin and reduce the appearance of red dots on my face! Is definitely a must for these trying times with my skin! PM PRE-CLEANSE: GARNIER - Micellar Milk Cleansing Water I usually use a cotton pad to wipe this across my face and then hop in the shower. This week I have been finding that as I get in the shower and give myself a quick rinse all over, that my face feels a little tingly on the cheek bones, am not sure if it is this or all the changes this week. CLEANSE: CeraVe - Hydrating Face Cleanser For Normal To Dry Skin TREATMENT: The Ordinary - Hyaluronic Acid 2% + B5 followed by PAULA'S CHOICE - Omega + Complex Serum I am very up in the air about this product. Anyone else that has used this please help me out here. I woke up the next morning with puffy red and itchy eye lids/cheek bones. I used this Friday night, not all weekend and then again lastnight (Tuesday) and again puffy eyes but not itchy. Will stop using this for a week and try again later when my skin has settled. EYE CREAM: CeraVe - Eye Repair Cream MOISTURISER: DRUNK ELEPHANT - Lala Retro Whipped Cream

Week 2 of Barrier Repair
Week 2 of Barrier Repair
After doing some more research I changed my routine to the following in Week 2: AM CLEANSE: washed face with water TREATMENT: The Ordinary - Hyaluronic Acid 2% + B5 MOISTURISER: DRUNK ELEPHANT - Lala Retro Whipped Cream EYE CREAM: CeraVe - Eye Repair Cream SUNSCREEN: PAULA'S CHOICE - Calm Mineral Moisturizer Broad Spectrum SPF 30 PM PRE-CLEANSE: GARNIER - Micellar Milk Cleansing Water for dry and sensitive skin, this has been amazing and so gentle on my skin CLEANSE: CeraVe - Hydrating Face Cleanser For Normal To Dry Skin this is a nice gentle cleanser, as of yet I am not sure of the long term benefits but it doesn’t leave my skin dry/tight after washing. Will continue to see how it goes. TREATMENT: The Ordinary - Hyaluronic Acid 2% + B5 this definitely leaves my skin feeling soft and hydrated after use. But unsure if hydrating enough. EYE CREAM: CeraVe - Eye Repair Cream still haven’t seen any improvements with this. MOISTURISER: DRUNK ELEPHANT - Lala Retro Whipped Cream as soon as I started using this my skin improved dramatically over night, I no longer had red rashy-looking bumps on my upper cheek. Even my husband noticed and complimented how my skin looked in the morning after just one use !! So this is a winner. Although, I am thinking as I get closer to summer I will go back to The Ordinary - Natural Moisturizing Factors + HA as I tend to get oily in the tzone and it is lighter than the DE moisturiser. Please tell me what you think of my routine. I am also looking at adding a chemical exfoliator, as I have deep black heads and visible pores across my cheeks and nose. And I get hormonal acne along my jawline. Suggestions on where to take my routine next are welcome. We have come out of winter and going into spring. The sun is out but the air outside is still quite nippy so havent started getting oily just yet.
