Changing Up My Skincare Routine for Fall
Changing Up My Skincare Routine for Fall
About my skin: dryyyyy, often flaky near/on nose and forehead, not usually sensitive Summer is coming to an end on 9/21, so I’ll be making some changes to my summer skincare routine. I have dry skin year-round and battled stubborn dry patches a few times during the summer. My fall skincare incorporates more moisture and hydration, but not quite as heavy as I’ll need for winter. Moisturizer: Out: GHOST DEMOCRACY - Clean Lightweight Daily Face Moisturizer This is actually almost empty so I’ll finish it off. Lightweight and unscented, but still moisturizing enough for my dry skin in summer. Won’t cut it for colder months, but will repurchase in springtime. Gifted by the brand. In: YOUTH TO THE PEOPLE - Adaptogen Deep Moisture Cream with Ashwagandha + Reishi Expensive, but really nice. On the thicker side, but not too heavy for AM & PM use. My cap cracked so ignore the tape haha. Cherie sent me this (ty!) Toner: Out: PURITO - Centella Unscented Toner Great for combo & sensitive skin, but works fine for dry in summer. Watery texture and not particularly hydrating, but is soothing. PR from the brand. In: PAULA'S CHOICE - Resist Advanced Replenshing Toner So hydrating!! Has a milky texture. Definitely adds a boost to my skin. Fall & winter staple (and probably spring). Essence: I’m not currently using one, but in spring and winter I used the SATURDAY SKIN - Press Pause Beauty Essence and will use it again this fall. It feels more like a serum vs an essence (see texture photo). Feels so silky on my skin! I also purchased one from Cocokind but haven’t opened it yet, so stay tuned. Exfoliants: Out: OFRA - Fruit Acid Lotion Tbh I don’t like this. It smells so strongly of chemicals. It has citrus, lactic, and glycolic acids. It is a toner, not a lotion like the name implies. It does exfoliate okay but really hate the smell. Gifted by brand via Octoly. In: FARMACY - Honeymoon Glow Serum This is an awesome exfoliant for dry skin because it contains honey. It doesn’t leave my skin feeling overly exfoliated. I only use 1-2x/wk in colder months. Expensive but lasts a long time. Mine’s about 2/3 empty. Face Oil: Out: GOOD MOLECULES - Squalane Oil I’ve loved this for a while. It’s lightweight and nourishing. I used it a lot in summer when I had dry spots. In: cocokind - Watermelon Hemp Oil This is more heavy duty. It does smell herbaceous but it dissipates. Deeply nourishing and multipurpose (like on hands!). PR from the brand. Face Mist: I use the YOUTH TO THE PEOPLE - Adaptogen Soothe + Hydrate Activated Mist with Reishi + Ashwagandha whenever I need a hydration boost. I’ll be using this a lot in fall. 1/2 empty! It’s overpriced but nice. Anyone have a good suggestion for a hydrating cleanser?! Let me know. #CheriePartner

When Names Deceive You
When Names Deceive You
Have you ever looked at the name and description of a product, then after trying it find that it wasn’t what you thought it would be? Yeah, that’s how I feel about this OFRA - Fruit Acid Lotion I recently received this for testing through Octoly. Based on its name and description, I thought this was an exfoliating...lotion. Sort of. Now, hear me out. This isn’t a bad product - it just wasn’t what I expected. This toner contains lactic, malic, and citric acids (all AHAs) to exfoliate, correct dark spots, and balance oil production. It also contains rosemary leaf, green tea, lemon, and orange extracts. The product has a very thin, watery consistency. Not at all like a lotion! It smells absolutely awful - like chemicals. I applied with a cotton ball and went in with my other PM skincare after the product sunk in (which was quickly). The name truly lead me to believe this was going to exfoliate, balance oil, correct dark spots, and add moisture to my skin. I will say, I did notice an improvement with dark spots, old acne scars, and texture. I don’t have issues with excess oil production. I tested this product 2x/wk for 3 weeks. I don’t find myself wanting to reach for it now that I’ve finished testing it because of the smell and fact that it is a strong product, not the gentle one I thought it would be. Would I recommend it? Yes, but with the caveat that it’s name doesn’t accurately reflect what the product will feel like. If strong smells bother you, this is not the product for you. I have dry skin and was able to use this, so it would likely be fine for oily and normal. Sensitive may want to stay away due to the strength of the product. I feel the price is fair for the small amount of product needed, but I don’t think this is something I’d buy. Price: $22 for 1.2oz. Availability: ofracosmetics.com
