#Pretti5Review by Destiny: Celebrating Authentic Beauty: A Journey of Heritage and Values

"We value inner beauty and the intentions of actions and words"

In the vast realm of skincare, where innovation meets tradition, there exists a profound intersection of culture, values, and efficacy. For Destiny Brijettney, a growing influencer in the beauty industry, her journey is not just about skincare; it's a celebration of heritage, sustainability, and inclusivity. Destiny’s outlook on skincare aligns with Pretti5’s plant-based, cruelty-free, East meets West cultural infusion identity. In an exclusive interview, she shares her insights, values, and favorite skincare find from Pretti5.

Embracing Her Cultural Influence

Born from the rich tapestry of Indigenous Chicana heritage, Destiny has always held a deep reverence for the diversity of skin tones, specifically adoring dark complexions and historical features within her community. "We value inner beauty and the intentions of actions and words," she shares. This mantra permeates her work, influencing her collaborations with brands whose values and intentions align with authenticity and genuine care for their customers.

Navigating Skincare Concerns

Destiny’s main skin concern is acne, and as someone navigating the challenges of stress-induced acne while pursuing a demanding Pre-Med student life and influencer career, she emphasizes the importance of product formulations. "The formulas of products are critical," she explains. Her approach to skincare involves meticulous research, often seeking insights from individuals with similar skin concerns to find products that truly deliver results.

A Unique Beauty Vision

Destiny’s growth in the beauty industry has been organic. She reflects on the slow pace of her journey and finds joy in the process and collaboration in every aspect of her work, from brand outreach to content creation. Destiny states that her beauty vision is a reflection of her Indigenous roots, “My unique beauty vision is heavily influenced by my Indigenous culture, products/brands that use eco-friendly natural formulas that contain even chemically safe ingredients that are effective, affordable and formulated for all skin types.” 

Curating Recommendations

In the beauty influencer world, where new products flood the market incessantly, there is a strong emphasis on trying new products. Destiny manages this by researching brands using social media, their website, or articles to determine if they align with her beauty vision. “In terms of which brands are worth recommending to my followers depends on the values of the brand on sustainability and inclusiveness. If a brand is making an obvious effort to cater to all skin types, economic classes, and even environmental efforts, then their formula will be of genuine value to share,” she asserts. It's about endorsing brands that embody genuine care for both consumers and the environment.


The Essence of Ethical Beauty

For Destiny, eco-friendliness and cruelty-free practices are non-negotiable traits when choosing products or collaborators. She believes these traits reflect the authentic values of brands and individuals within the industry. Moreover, she advocates for greater corporate involvement in environmental causes, urging companies to prioritize sustainability and ethical practices, stating, “Many preach wanting to improve the quality of skincare to therefore improve the confidence and skin health and promote inner beauty. However, if brands are abusing our sensitive environment and taking advantage of innocent animals when there ARE so many alternatives, it says whether the quality and effectiveness of the products is actually worthy or for the sake of monetary business gain.

A Radiant Favorite

Among the array of clean skincare treasures offered by Pretti5, Destiny has a soft spot for the Hyaluronic Acid Serum. "It's an amazing formula for someone sensitive to dry skin," she enthuses. The serum leaves her skin feeling “baby soft and dewy” with a radiant glow that embodies the essence of beauty with purpose. 

In the world of skincare, Destiny stands as a beacon of authenticity, advocating for beauty products that not only enhance outer radiance but also showcases inner beauty by embodying values of sustainability, inclusivity, and cultural celebration. Through her work and collaborations, she continues to inspire others to embrace their unique beauty while fostering a more conscious approach to skincare and self-care alike.
