We have a Giveaway for you
Hi mamas! I’ve got something pretty cool to tell you about today. We have a fantastic giveaway starting today that is close to my heart. What do I mean by that?
Before becoming Community Director here at Modern Mama Vancouver, I worked in the spa industry for over 12 years. I performed countless facial treatments (which I adore to this day), laser rejuvenation treatments, microdermabrasion, full body massage, pedicures, waxing and basically anything you would go into a spa for. I have tried and tested many skin care lines over the years.
Now that I’m a mom and lucky if I get a shower and brush my hair every day, (oh the shame!) such detailed care of my skin isn’t possible. And while it would be nice, these days I am much more interested in keeping things simple.
simple is key
With the theme of simplicity in mind, I want to introduce you to a skin care line that I have been testing myself because not only is it a simple system but I’m really liking it.
3 Part Cherlyn Skincare System ~ for all skin types
First of all, I’ve always been skeptical when I see labels that say ‘all skin types’.
My skin is fussy, oily and dehydrated all at the same time and I still breakout more than occasionally. It definitely doesn’t respond well to products that are suited for a dry skin condition, specifically oil-dry, far different from my water-dry skin AKA dehydrated, or one that is acneic, even though I still get acne.
To make matters worse, my fussy sometimes acneic and dehydrated skin is losing its youthful firmness and vitality (but don’t tell me that when I meet you). I suppose at 46 years old that comes with the territory but it’s a complicated mess sometimes.
So when I decided to give this line a try, I wasn’t really sure it would be for me. I approached hesitantly, knowing that if I delved in too far, the result could potentially be disaster. The result could be breakouts, oiliness, and stressed looking skin.
The true test
I was pleasantly surprised to discover that these products are not only very gentle, but effective in reducing oiliness and rebalancing my skin. The true test for me and my fussy skin is that it doesn’t feel dry and tight after I wash it.
The Cherlyn Skincare System includes 3 products:
- Purifying Cleanser: 120 ml (4.06 fl. oz U.S.)
- Clarifying Serum: 40 ml (1.35 fl. oz U.S.) (use once a day, at night)
- Bio-Restore Cream: 60 g (2.12 oz)
Retail value of $198.00
Cherlyn Skincare System ~ easy to use
The Purifying Cleanser is gentle yet very effective at removing dirt and makeup. I always perform a double cleanse, once to remove makeup and the second to really get the skin clean. The Purifying Cleanser foams slightly and you only need the size of a pea to do an effective job of cleaning your skin.
Use the Clarifying Serum once a day at night on skin that has been pat dry to allow the fruit acids to penetrate and work their magic on you skin. The result is a more vital and fresh looking skin with pores that look smaller and oiliness under control. A half pump or so is all you need to spread over the entire skin on the face.
The Bio-Restore Cream can be used both day and night, the size of a pea will effectively cover the skin. Apply once your Clarifying serum has been absorbed for full benefit.
The main active ingredients of AHA and BHA effectively yet gently exfoliate the skin while maintaining its pH balance. This means that the products are never harsh yet do a great job of restoring functionality, resulting in a skin that acts more youthful.
Although these products are for all skin types, they truly benefit more oily, aging, sensitive, and problem skin types the most. And lets face it, most of us have one or all of these concerns. Don’t forget to include the neck and decollette when using these products.

The Cherlyn Skincare line is made right here in Vancouver – Richmond, BC to be exact, and is a 100% naturally derived skincare line for all skin types.

You are beautiful inside and out
Cherlyn’s goal is to care for a woman’s natural, radiant beauty; skin, body, mind, and heart. She believes that every woman deserves to feel proud of how she looks, and remember that they are beautiful as they are, inside and out. The company is BC owned, operated, and product-manufactured, but shipping is available across North America. Cherlyn Skincare also won a Beauty Award for Best Line for Combo/Problem Skin from Gorgeously Green in 2012.
Just plain simplicity; which I love these days.
I don’t say this often but I LOVE this line. The Cherlyn 3 Part Skincare System is easy to use, not over-drying and effective at reducing oiliness in my skin. The only thing I would add is that it’s important to use a natural sunscreen product of at least an SPF15 every day. I do this everyday anyway, but the fruit acids the products contain can leave your skin vulnerable to sun damage. This is true anytime you use products that contain exfoliating ingredients.
There you have it! I am so excited to tell you about our giveaway!
