As someone with combination skin, it's not overly drying but you still feel clean after using it. It also doubles as a make-up or sunscreen remover. You can use this as the first step in your morning and evening routine. VICHY - LiftActiv Specialist Peptide-C Anti-Aging Ampoules Vichy really did it with this one. This contains 10% L-ascorbic acid, the best-studied form of vitamin C. It also contains hyaluronic acid and peptides. It serves as an amazing anti-oxidant and will brighten the skin and build collagen over time. Use this in the AM after cleansing. elta md SKINCARE - UV Clear Broad Spectrum SPF 46 You all know this is one of my favorite products of all time. It goes on without a white cast and contains niacinamide, which is amazing for acne and rosacea-prone skin. CeraVe - Resurfacing Retinol Serum Retinoids are the cornerstone of my skincare routine. They have anti-aging and anti-acne benefits. They fade dark spots and improve skin texture. This product by ceraVe is a perfect starter retinoid because it contains an encapsulated form of retinoid and licorice, which helps to calm down inflammation and fade hyperpigmentation. Use this at night after cleansing. Avoid this if pregnant or breastfeeding! SUNDAY RILEY - Good Genes Glycolic Acid Treatment This is one of the best exfoliants on the market. It contains lactic acid, one of the most gentle and effective alpha-hydroxy acids you can use in your skincare routine. It also contains licorice, which helps to fade dark spots and calm redness. This is best used 1-2x a week at night. Avoid using it on the same nights as your retinol. This product does contain lemongrass oil, which can cause irritation or allergy in a very small group of people (<1%). Always make sure to patch test. LA ROCHE-POSAY - Toleriane Ultra Face Moisturizer for Sensitive Skin This is a gentle, non-greasy moisturizer that's great for all skin types. The bottle is hermetically sealed to prevent air from getting it, which allows the moisturize to be produced with no preservatives. It's also fragrance-free.

Lactic Acid: One Empty one Newbie
Empty – The Ordinary - Lactic Acid 10% + HA This product, while pretty effective, can be difficult to use. It has a completely liquid formula which means that it runs and drips everywhere (acid close to my eyes, no thank you!). So this does provide that smoothing that I look for in a lactic acid serum, but I’m ultimately wary of using it because it’s just not user friendly. I also find that the dropper in their packaging dislodges itself from the cap quite often, which means that I have to touch/contaminate it to fix it. Newbie – SUNDAY RILEY - Good Genes Glycolic Acid Treatment I have used this one before, and I think it provides really great results. It has a serum-like consistency which tingles a bit upon application. But I find that my skin is so completely transformed when I use it. It leaves my skin smooth and glowing, which is exactly what I’m looking for. I also love the pump in the packaging! Although this serum is pricey, I would definitely invest in it! Even though The Ordinary serum is about 1/12 the cost of the Sunday Riley one, I think it’s not worth it because it’s so difficult to use. I definitely recommend the SR one and will purchase it when I need a replacement lactic acid serum!

Hormonal/Cystic Acne approved - They WORK
If you know me, you know The Ordinary is my first favorite brand and Sunday Riley is always competing hard with it to be on my Faves list. I am obsessed with these picks from them. I have my reasons to love this brand these products. Being Acne prone and dealing with a lot of skin texture, dullness and hyperpigmentation I always am looking for products that 'work'! No BS simply work, and these products work for me. I have seen dramatic changes in my skin when I use these. I'm going to order these from the most effective and my favorites to the least! Sunday Riley was one brand which was hell expensive for me but on the other side they worked really well. I don't purchase them often as I purchase TO, but whenever I can I don't rethink. If you want products that work these are the ones: 1. A+ Retinoid SUNDAY RILEY - A+ High-Dose Retinol Serum - This is my most favorite and most picked one from Sunday Riley. Guys, take my word on it this stuff is amazing. I love retinol and I know my skin responds in a certain way when I apply Retinoids. So, if some retinoids don't show the expected results I know they're not the ones for me. This Retinoid made my skin so soft, supple and healthy while taking care of those stubborn Hormonal cystic acne. Also, it exfoliates amazingly and reduces the look of PIH. ✨Exfoliates well ✨Reduces look of fine lines and wrinkles ✨Reduces Hyperpigmentation (PIH, Melasma) ✨Brightens and tightens skin ✨Makes skin soft and reduces irregular texture 2. Tidal SUNDAY RILEY - Tidal Brightening Enzyme Water Cream - This is second most loved product from SR. It's because it has Alpha Arbutin in it. Alpha Arbutin is an amazing brightening Anti-Oxidant that slows down the melanin production leading to reducing hyperpigmentation. This cream is actually a lightweight gel that gets absorbed in skin quickly and I have experienced a brighter, healthier skin with it. ✨Brightens complexion ✨Reduces Hyperpigmentation, slows down melanin production ✨Gel like texture doesn't sit heavy on skin ✨You can mix L-ascorbic powder or any vitamin C serum with it to boost it's brightening effect. 3. Vitamin C SUNDAY RILEY - C.E.O. Vitamin C Rich Hydration Cream - I love this cream in winters because of it's thick but hydrating texture. Love this cream as it's an amazing moisturizer for daytime regimen. ✨ Relatively thick and creamy ✨Hydrates skin ✨Reduces hyperpigmentation ✨Tightens skin and makes it plump ✨Lasts long because you only need a pea size with it 4. Lactic acid SUNDAY RILEY - Good Genes Glycolic Acid Treatment - This is an amazing product for someone who is new to AHAs and chemical exfoliation. It exfoliates skin in a very gentle way and doesn't irritate skin. I like the creamy, lightweight formula that is equally effective as serum or toners. ✨Mildly exfoliates ✨Doesn't irritate skin ✨Creamy formula that doesn't feel heavy ✨Makes skin softer and reduces texture in just one use ( Mainly because of Lactic acid/ AHA) 5. Martian SUNDAY RILEY - Martian Mattifying Melting Water-Gel Toner - This toner has an interesting formula, it comes out as foamy gel into watery toner when it touches skin! It's amazing. It's a great product for acne prone skin and people with active acne. It has Bentonite clay, green tea, witch hazel, and marshmallow extract helps chill out redness, reduce excess oil, and tighten pores. ✨ Matte, shine-free finish ✨Slightly cooling and soothing when applied ✨Reduces the redness and inflammation ✨Reduces skin irritation ✨Use this after Thermal water and you'll find it more soothing ✨Witch hazel in this formula doesn't work as astringent and doesn't strip skin.

Reflecting on 2020
2020 is coming to a close. I think we are all very hopeful for a better 2021. 2020 has been challenging year. But, as hard as it has been for me having a newborn & a toddler at home during two lockdowns now (Ontario is officially locked down today again), it has also given me LOTS of time with my kids, a HUGE appreciation for stay at home moms, and appreciating all the things I took for granted like seeing friends & family at Christmas. Here’s my @cherie2020 Top 5 1. Product My favourite has been SUNDAY RILEY - Good Genes Glycolic Acid Treatment I received it in a sample bag from Sephora and was blown away by the results. It’s a 7 % lactic acid treatment in a milky serum consistency. It also contains licorice root extract. You really can notice it smooth & brighten your skin in 3 minutes! I haven’t bought the full size yet. It retails for $112 CAD for 1oz. But when my sample runs out I think this one is worth the money! (The sample is .25oz and I’ve been using it once a week for about 6 weeks and I might have one use left) 2. Trend Does Vitamin C count as a trend? I only started my skincare journey 6 months ago. I didn’t really know anything about skincare ingredients. Now I’ve bought two Vitamin C serums, an eye cream, and face wash! Vitamin C is powerful antioxidant that helps give you brighter, tighter, and overall more radiant looking skin. I definitely have noticed a difference since starting use to Vitamin C serums! VERSED - STROKE OF BRILLIANCE Brightening Serum SUNDAY RILEY - C.E.O. Rapid Flash Brightening Serum(haven’t started using) OLE HENRIKSEN - Banana Bright Eye Crème OLE HENRIKSEN - Truth Juice Daily Cleanser 3. Best Look My best book would have to be my everyday 5 minute natural make-up look (see earlier post). Before I started my skincare journey in the summer, I was maybe washing my face in the shower and putting on lotion. Definitely no make-up. I looked tired and dull. Now I take care of my skin, so even without make-up I look brighter and I also take 5 minutes to put on a little make-up, even if it is just to walk the kids to the park and it makes me feel a lot better about my appearance. CLINIQUE - Moisture Surge Sheertint Hydrator Broad Spectrum SPF 25 SEPHORA COLLECTION - Bright Future Gel Serum Concealer Milk MAKEUP - Lip + Cheek CLINIQUE - High Impact Lash Elevating Mascara CLINIQUE - Just Browsing Brush-on Styling Mousse 4. Favourite Creator on Cherie I might be biased because I won a great giveaway from her, but I really love following @JadesJourney I really enjoy her intersection between skincare and wellness. Check her out! 5. Something I learned The biggest thing I learned this year is not only can I find the time everyday to take care of my skin but that I look forward to it! Happy New Year!
OLE HENRIKSEN-Banana Bright Eye Crème
SUNDAY RILEY POWER COUPLE
I’m loving this. I know some people have said they don’t like it but like I always say everyone’s skin is different. All skin reacts differently and my skin is LOVING THIS DUO. So, I’m not gonna talk about “Good Genes” because I do have a post already dedicated to it. Just know I’m obsessed. This duo is definitely a power couple 💙🤍 Now for the Luna night oil, it absorbs so easily. It does have a light fragrance, at first I didn’t know if I was a fan but it has grown on me forsure. It’s really helped with my fine lines on my forehead as well as softening my smile lines. I like to pat it on my face first, let as much absorb into the skin on its own, and then I rub in what’s left :) Sometimes when I rub things in, I feel like it’s more on my hands rather than my face. I dunno, I think about weird things like that haha :) Pat first, rub later ☺️ If you love this info, please like this post. ❤️ PSA: 🚨🚨🚨 DO NOT USE IF YOU ARE PREGNANT DO NOT USE IF YOU ARE BREASTFEEDING USE SUNSCREEN SUNDAY RILEY - Luna Sleeping Night Oil WHAT IS IT?

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
