Fresh Sugar Strawberry Exfoliating Wash
fresh - Sugar Strawberry Exfoliating Face Wash What does this product do? The strawberry exfoliating face wash is an exfoliating cleanser that’s supposed to remove impurities and excess oil while refining pores and exfoliating the skin. What is this best for? The target concerns for this product are oilliness, dryness, dullness, and uneven texture. This product is a scrub, containing very tiny sugar crystals to buff the skin, strawberry and black currant extracts to maintain a healthy complexion, and grape seed oil to maintain hydration. The product is pictured next to the bottle, and as you can see it’s a very thin scrub and not chunky or harsh at all. It kind of feels like you’re rubbing honey and sugar on your face. What do I think about it? I bought this scrub when it came out because I really love the brand and have been a big fan for years. I have been using this about once a week for the past two months. I think this scrub is perfect when you want to to a little gentle physical exfoliation. My skin feels so so soft after I use this, and it looks really plump and supple too. My skin also looks instantly brighter after using this. It smells amazing like sweet strawberries, but I will say that I don’t think it’s good for skincare to have a ton of fragrance. It retails for $33 for a 4.2oz tube, which I do think is a little overpriced, I feel like it could go for ten dollars less. I do still think this product was worth it, I really enjoy the overall experience of using the product, and I would recommend it to others who are in the market for a new exfoliating scrub.

Murad | AHA / BHA Exfoliating Cleanser
Dry flaky skin? No, thank you 🙅🏻♀️ Enter Murad’s AHA / BHA exfoliating cleanser. A game changer! You’re probably wondering what AHA or BHA means and what do they do for our skin. Both do a really good job with exfoliators, pore minimizers, wrinkles reduction, evening out the skin tone, and removing dead skin cells. You can use AHA or BHA by itself depending on your skin concerns. AHA: Alpha hydroxy acid- they are water-soluble derived from fruits. AHAs are generally used to target aging/wrinkles , discoloration/hyperpigmentation, and enlarged pores. AHAs help peel the dead skin cells in the surface of our face to make way for the new and more evenly pigmented skin cells. Leaving your face smooth like a baby’s butt! BHA: Beta hydroxy acid- these are oil-soluble acids. Unlike AHAs, BHAs work deeper on the skin. It deeply penetrates the pores and drying out excess oil and dead skin to unclog the pores. BHAs are usually used to target acne and sun damage. With that in mind, BHAs can be drying on the skin. It’s usually geared for oily or oily combo skin. Now about my experience with this product: First of, these a lot of product in this bottle and a little goes a long way! It feels light weight and applies on to the face nicely. It’s definitely a gentle exfoliator. I concentrated on my T-zone a lot when using this since those are the areas where I have a lot of excess oil production and sebum. After use, looks brighter and healthier. My skin feels super smooth!!! I literally cannot stop feeling my cheeks after. It does a great job with unclogging the pores or even just prepping the pores for simple easy white head extractions. Overall, I am really happy with this product. I received it from my ipsy glam bag ultimate. I use this 2-3x a week. Basically every other night.

Get Glowing Skin for Beginners ✨
So you’re getting into skincare and want to get the glow? For me, glowing skin is about overall skin health. Here are the top tips I have! I have combo skin that is sensitive and acne-prone. 💛Acne Attack My skin journey began with a lot of hormonal and cystic acne so I started figuring out what to do to deal with that. I currently give credit to the following for really making a difference: ✨Retinol/Retinal These increase skin cell turnover so they are essentially acne medication. I recommend starting very slowly with these at night with a heavier moisturizer because they can be drying. These heal my breakouts faster and prevent them in the first place. ✨Vitamin C I give this lots of credit for helping with any hyperpigmentation that happens after breakouts. So incredible for acne scars and overall brightening your skin! I love to use mine during the day to fight free radicals. ✨Sunscreen The true hero of skincare. If you’re not using this, nothing else matters. I recommend Krave - The Beet Shield which also has vitamin C. ✨Double cleansing at night. Buy a cleansing balm and gently massage your face for 10 minutes. Seriously you will feel the junk leaving your pores. This helps take off makeup, sunscreen, dirt and pollutants from the day. Always do this at night before a regular water-based cleanser like Krave - Matcha Hemp Hydrating Cleanser 💛HYDRATION I always tell people when they start, find a good cleanser, moisturizer and sunscreen. This is the core of skincare health. Sure the actives are great for specific concerns, but the basics can take you far too. When I’m looking for a moisturizer, I want ceramides in it. I currently alternate between these two: #FARMACY - Honey Halo Ultra-hydrating Ceramide Moisturizer[products]#[FiveStars] #CeraVe - Healing Ointment[products]#[FiveStars] The healing ointment is best for night because it is THICK and no joke but wow does it always hydrate my entire life. 💛Exfoliation Exfoliation is huge for glowing skin. I prefer chemical exfoliation because it is gentler than physical scrubs. You’ll want to look for anything with AHA, BHA or PHA. My favorite exfoliants are: FARMACY - Honeymoon Glow Serum Dr Dennis Gross - Skincare Alpha Beta Peel Extra Strength Formula 30 Applications Honeymoon Glow has AHA as well as gentle flower acids. I find this literally does give me a glow the next morning and is great for breakouts. It can feel a bit strong so maybe start slow and work your way up. Other things that helped me: ✨I stopped drinking ✨I drink way more water now ✨Using Pink Clay masks removes impurities when needed ✨Niacinamide (I’ll use this for texture with Vitamin C and yes you can use them together safely- there’s an old belief that you can’t) ✨SUNSCREEN AGAIN 💚The key is consistency in your routine, using products that work for YOU and adjusting here and there for concerns. #CheriePartner

+Favorite Korean Products+
There are a lot of great korean products in the market, that benefit the skin. I personally began using korean products 3 years ago and since then I have been incorporating more korean products in my skincare regimen. Some korean products that use minimum ingredients which my skin loves; I was not able to choose my favorite korean products but, here are my top 3: I have been using COSRX - Low PH Good Morning Gel Cleanser (purchased) for almost 6 months now. I use this cleanser every morning to wash away any impurities my skin picked up while asleep. This cleanser is gentle to my skin and it does not strip out the good oils in our skin; in fact it is very hydrating (I think my skin is greatful for this cleanser). This cleanser does not foam as much which is great for a morning cleanser and it is lightweight. This products is Cruelty-Free and vegan. I recommend this product to every skin type or if you are looking for a gentle morning cleanser. For a 5.07oz - $12 It°S SKIN - Tiger Cica Calming Serum was given to me as a gratis. I have been using this for 5 months but, I only use this when I have troubled skin. This serum contains 74% of Centella Asiatica (CICA) which has antioxidants, anti-inflammatory, and healing properties. This serum moisturizes and soothes-irritated skin. The texture of this is almost water like; lightweight and fast absorbing. I use this serum after my toner or sometimes I use it right after my cleanser. I really like that my skin feels refreshed and smooth after using the serum. I recommend this serum to sensitive and acne prone skin because of the soothing CICA For a 80ml - $30 Not to long ago I purchased the Huxley - Sleep Mask; Good Night and it was the best thing I have purchased so far. This sleeping mask hydrates, soothes, and repairs dull skin. This contains prickly pear cactus extract which is full of antioxidants, vitamin E, and linoleic acid. I have been using this overnight for almost a month now and every morning I wake up my skin looks and feels glowy and replenished. I like that this a non-sticky gel formula mask and it is fast absorbent to the skin. I recommend this to all skin types and if your concern is dull skin I high recommend it. For a 4.23oz- $28

Battle of the Cleansers! 🧼 PART TWO
I have so many cleansers I had to make two posts about it! Here’s the second half, be sure to read part one for the other cleansers I reviewed. MY SKIN: Dry, crazy sensitive, prone to redness with a few breakouts here and there but nothing crazy. DISCLAIMER: This is just my personal experience with the products and I by no means speak for everyone’s experience. Maybe you love these products, and if they work for you, that’s amazing! If they don’t, I hope you find something that does! But if you haven’t and are looking into any of these products, I hope I can help you make an informed decision. Thanks! fresh - Sugar Strawberry Exfoliating Face Wash this product highlights sugar and strawberry to exfoliate and brighten skin. My honest opinion: I know, I know, scrubs are bad and evil. I hear it all the time. However, every time I use an exfoliating active my skin loses its mind and turns bright red and can sometimes sting for a whole 24 hours after I use it. Until I find an active that doesn’t completely destroy my skin, I’m sticking to scrubs. Sugar is a great scrub since it dissolves with water, meaning the risk of over-scrubbing is minimized. And I scrub VERY gently. Since my primary concern with exfoliating is dead skin and not acne, this works just fine for me. It’s definitely one of the most gentle scrubs I’ve used, so if you just need to use a scrub like me, this is a great one to use. DRUNK ELEPHANT - Beste No. 9 Jelly Cleanser Deluxe Sample This product highlights cantaloupe and glycerin as it’s key ingredients to deeply cleanse all of the day’s impurities. My honest opinion: I used to use this as my summer cleanser daily for a long time. This is probably my 3rd bottle of it. So what happened? This cleanser did wonders for my skin when I lived in a hot and sweaty environment to clean all the gunk and full face of makeup off of me. But my life changed (and lbr so did the world) this year. I live in on a completely different side of the world and I stay indoors, rarely wear makeup and my skin has gotten a lot drier and this cleanser just doesn’t do it for me anymore. The surfactants are too stripping for dry skin. So, I’m breaking up with this cleanser. YOUTH TO THE PEOPLE - Superfood Antioxidant Cleanser This product highlights kale, green tea, spinach, and vitamins B, C, and E to remove buildup and balance pH without drying. My honest opinion: Y’all, I am IN LOVE with this cleanser. I picked up the YTTP Mini kit and used the whole bottle up and purchased the full size without a second thought! The INCI list is short and sweet, full of antioxidants and just feels amazing. I walked around sephora with it and every single person I saw was like “yes that’s my fave!” Honestly this is a stellar cleanser for dry skin and I highly recommend it. Full disclosure it does have fragrance and chlorophyll as the last two ingredients, but I haven’t had an issue with it. Big love!!

Dermotologist Advice You Don't Want To MissA roundup of the best tips from cherie's derm panel with Dr. Mina and Dr. Cula.Jan. 21
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
