My Current Skincare Routine

Hey Guys,

I wanted to come on and share my current skincare routine; this routine is very simple I personally don’t like to have too man steps nor do I feel the need to have too many steps because it’s discouraging and not really necessary. I have found that simple is better and less is more unless it comes to food then all bets are OFF! lol!!


For those of you who have been following me on YouTube for a while you know my skin has come a long way. To go even further, I have had bad skin since I was a teenager, I been it was BAD to the point that I never wanted to take pictures and the ones I DID take will remain at my grandparent’s home OFF the internet. LOL I’m DEAD serious though. My acne was bad, and everywhere, and I had a LOT of hyper-pigmentation.

I have worked hard over the years, before I even started wearing makeup to clear my skin up because one of the things is I need to feel confident WITHOUT the makeup. My skin has changed a lot over the years in regards to getting a little older and the climates of where I have and currently lived. At this point in my life my skin is normal/dry and so I have learned to treat my skin per my skin type. Often times before I thought all products worked for all skin types but once I started researching and buying products based on my specific skin type a lot of things started to change.


My skincare routine is very simple:

Peter Thomas Roth 24k Cleansing Butter– To take off my makeup gently and do so effectively without taking the moisture out of my skin. I only use this when I take off my makeup and honestly I don’t wear makeup all the time so there are days when I don’t use it.


Shea Moisture African Black Soap– I personally like the bar form because it’s easier the travel with, I use this everyday. I swear by this stuff it really gets my skin clean while not making my skin feel duper dried out after using it.


Shea Moisture Problem Skin Toner– I use this to tone my skin, and keep any acne problems at bay. Some people don’t use toners, and some do it’s completely up to you.

Ole Henriksen Truth Sugar Glow Polishing Mask– This. Stuff. Is. Life. I don’t really need to say more. I use this once a week in the shower and it really does help brighten the skin while at the same time making it smooth and moisturized. A true gem!


Mahogany Naturals Hydrating Repair Oil– I use this stuff faithfully! AM and PM everyday, it’s PERFECT for the cold weather and works GREAT for dry skin! It has this soothing smell that’s relaxing too!

So that’s my skincare routine, very simple, as I said before for me it’s best to have a simple skincare routine so that I can do it everyday instead of getting lazy or getting overwhelmed with products.Let me know some of your favorites down below; I’m a skincare product whore so I’m forever changing my routine when I get bored with products. LOL

  1. I recently just got into the Body Shops skincare stuff and EVERYTHING I tried so far is AMAZING! I’m so happy with the products I’ve been using lately. I’m going to do a whole post on them soon, including products from other skincare brands.

  3. Your skin looks amaze balls!! I’ve noticed a great improvement!! I’ve been using the SheaMoisture African Black Soap bar for about a month now and I love it! I was just in Walgreens contemplating trying the toner and I think I’m going to go back and get it along with the mud mask from this line. My Walgreens is having the BOGO 50% off sale. Thank you so much for sharing!


  4. I recently bought the shea moisture moisturizer that matches your toner and I love it. I was issuing Clinique for a really long time and I was told it is not for mature skin, I’m 30 so that threw me off 😂😂. So now I have been using the Murad toner for a year and I love but I think once my bottle is done I’m going to try the shea moisture one. Great post Cheryl.


  5. Hey boo! 😘😘 The Ole Henriksen glow polish is LIFE! I was able to try this via Influenster & want to purchase (Major $$) but you can’t put a price on skin care. 😄 I remember when I first subbed to your YT Channel almost 2 years ago and your skin has come a long way. Thanks for sharing love! 😘


  6. This came right on time for me, I was ready to go to Sephora and look stupid buying unnecessary stuff when I need to go back to the basics. Referring to the African black soap and toner . Thanks always for sharing
