  • Herbalife SKIN Soothing Aloe Cleanser. I LOVE this cleanser because it's very moisturizing on my normal - dry skin. It gently cleans any dirt, excess make up and environmental impurities from my skin w/o being too harsh. It contains aloe vera (good for softening & moisturizing), Rosemary,  Vitamins B3, C and E to promote healthy skin and it's Paraben and Sulfate free. I must also mention that I did have a few dark spots on my face and they cleared up in a week from using this product...... 5 STARS*****
  • Rimmel London Eye Makeup RemoverI'm loving this product at the moment because it actually removes my mascara (which is my problem area) and doesn't take off a lash or two! It also leaves my skin moisturized, not dry and it's very affordable!
  • SkinCeuticals Sports UV Defense "SPF 45". Are you using sunscreen on a daily basis??? Me either... BUT don't let me be a bad influence on your skin because using a sunscreen high in SPF is a MUST (Cheryl... listen)! With global warming on steroids right now, you have to protect of your skin. I love this sunscreen because it is water and sweat proof and contains transparent zinc oxide which protects against UVA rays (proven to cause premature signs of aging).
  • Lumene Vitamin C Day Cream. Y'all know I love me some lumene! I actually came to know about this product from my line sister during my college days at Howard and I have been hooked ever since. It contains active ingredients from the arctic region like cloudberry, an age-defying seed oil rich in omega acids that protects and strengthens the skin). I love how this moisturizer gives my skin that dewy glow and keeps me hydrated all day.
  • Tu'el Eye Corrector Firm & Lighten Gel. 1 of the 2 new products that I have been testing out lately and am loving and with this product, a little definitely goes a LONG way! This product contains ingredients like blackberry and licorice which helps to lighten dark circles and increase micro-circulation.  Antioxidants- ginkgo biloba, wild thyme and vitamin E firm and tone to help reduce signs of aging. This gel is very absorbent and leaves my under eye area with healthy glow (not kidding).
  • Tu'el Eye Revive Firming Cream. The 2nd installment of my newest additions. I typically use this cream at night because it is more rich in texture. It contains ingredients like tripeptide 37, which helps rejuvenate appearance of the eye area and ups the production of your skin's collagen. Antoxidants bamboo silica, lycii berry, carrot seed and pomegranate help to brighten, tone, renew and protect skin from this cray cray weather and free radicals. Last but not least, it contains one of my favorite ingredients.... argan oil which helps to condition, nourish and strengthen fatigued skin.
  • Herbalife SKIN Hydrating Eye Cream. I alternate between this product and the Tu'el Eye Revive cream (I like to keep my skin on it's toes, so it doesn't become too product dependent). This eye cream helps to minimize the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles and keeps my skin moisturized for up to eight hours while I am resting at night. Some of the ingredients are vitamin B3, vitamins C & E, soothing aloe vera, macadamia nut oil, cucumber extract and peptide all of which help you to see results in just seven days!

  2. Herbalife SKIN Instant Reveal Berry Scrub: This scrub DEFINITELY lives up to it's name. I like this product because it is a gentle exfoliate on my skin. I use it once a week to get rid of the dead skin cells for smoother/glowing skin (of course water plays a part as well). It is Paraben and Sulfate free and is rich in vitamins, antioxidants and berry extracts.
  3. Herbalife SKIN Energizing Herbal Toner: I love this toner because it is alcohol free and doesn't burn or dry out my skin. It conditions while getting rid of excess dirt that wasn't all removed from the cleansing step and it leaves my skin feeling fresh with an invigorating feel. It contains Botanicals, Vitamins and Aloe Vera and it's Paraben free.
  4. Lumene Rejuvenating Eye Cream: I have been using Lumene products for 4 years now and they have never disappointed me! This eye cream is amazing in that it keeps my under eye area hydrated and helps prevent wrinkles and puffiness.
  5. Clinique Dramatically Different Moisturizing Lotion: This has been a staple in my routine for years now and I love how rich and smooth this moisturizer always makes my skin feel. It helps to strength my skin's moisturize content while leaving it glowing.

Of course with proper nutrition and hydration on the inside of your body will ultimately shape how your skin looks on the outside. I try to take very good care of myself by making sure I take a multivitamin which supports healthy bones, hair and skin as well as making sure I have enough healthy protein, carbs, fats and water in my diet.
