Grabbing a couple of serums from Daytox today. Anyone use anything from this brand?

Need help.

I've always had oily skin, but recently I've been struggling with tight, sensitive and dull skin PLUS being oily (dehydrated skin I guess) and I can't find any products to deal with it. Plus I've started getting eye wrinkles and idk what to use for that, either, as my under eye area is also feeling dry + oily...

This is what I use right now, not really seeing improvements with the use of any of these:
- Bioten Micellar Water
- Dr. Organic Tea Tree Face Wash
- The Body Shop Aqua Boost Sorbet
- The Body Shop Drops of Youth Eye Roller (does nothing except feeling fresh because of the metallic roll-on, and it's super expensive, 0/10)

Can anyone with a similar skin type offer me any recommendations? I already drink plenty of water and try to get plenty of sleep in. Rip exercise because I don't have any time, I still walk for about 30min everyday though.

My face was like yours -- oily, but so dry that it was physically painful most of the time. Sephora lady commiserated and recommended the following morning and night, which not only solved all my oily-and-dry problems within a month but also kept my skin hydrated through a subsequent course of Accutane.

- Any toner water
- Caudalie Vine[Activ] Overnight Detox Night Oil
- Tatcha Indigo Soothing Triple Recovery Cream

At various times, I tried swapping out for cheaper products (argan oil for the Caudalie oil, Eucerin eczema moisturizer for the Tatcha cream), but could feel the difference. Now that I'm off the Accutane, I can at least just use the Tatcha cream at night and a lighter moisturizer during the day.

Always wash your face at night or at least some time after you come back home just to cleanse of all the dust and other stuff in the air that are stuck to you skin from being outside. Apply moisturizer or whatever you routine is afterwards. If you meant as in should you wash all your products off right before bed then no.

I've never really used any sort of skincare routine, but I've also never worn makeup.

I'm not prone to spots, but my skins looking worn out and tired. Generally my only skincare routine is drinking water and eating kiwis.

My skin is oily in the t zone, but really quite dry elsewhere. Basically I'm wondering what's something low maintenance I can do? my skin is quite sensitive and not to be a meme but natural products appeal to me more. Any tips? I suppose I have a moderate budget, but would prefer something that might have a bigger up front investment, but will last a while.

My skin gets a combo of prescription retinoids 3x per week, mandelic acid peel 1x per week and niacinamide/vit c most days.

kojic acid soap IS drying, but there's not really any actual whitening product that isn't. if it's just because your face is tanned and the rest of you isn't, why don't you try using a lighter foundation? or mixing a lighter foundation with your current one?

plenty of korean brands sell ''brightening'' products which will make your face appear a few shades lighter. don't confuse these with whitening products. these combined with sunscreen might help you depending on how tanned you are.

alternatively, >>9769033 has a pretty good point if you aren't stuck on being pale.

Honestly staying hydrated, cutting most sugar from my diet, and protecting my skin from the sun did more for my skin than quitting tobacco (not that I was a heavy smoker, but still).
There are apps you can get that remind you to drink throughout the day, and if you're one of those weirdos who doesn't like water, invest in some good tea or something.
If I'm feeling really dehydrated, I'll even stoop to buying a large Powerade Zero or Pedialite, since years of sports conditioned me to drink those really fast.

Wear sunscreen. Prevents most signs of aging and wrinkles. You can't fix aging with sunscreen, but you can prevent sun damage. Try a retinoid or something along those lines for fine lines and other signs of aging. Keep your skin hydrated and make sure to always remove makeup properly.

>> No.9770498,1 [INTERNAL] 

What you describe sounds like a normal person's skin who is not using the right products. I have an oily t-zone and if I don't moisturize my face is tight and irritated. Obviously there are 8 billion products on the market you can use but just for starters here is what I use:

>Face wash: Lancome creme radiance. It's gentle but removed makeup/oil well. I use it now that I'm older and no longer need a harsh salycilic acid facewash (don't really get breakouts any more)
>Toner: Lancome Radiance. You may benefit from Tonique Confort if you are still in your teens/early 20's. I've used both, love both
>Moisturizer: Lancome Multi-vital SPF 30 during the day, some apricot moisturizer from Whole Foods at night. I'm less picky with night creams. If it's thick and uses natural moisturizes and has vitamins in it I'll use it.
>Eye cream: Shiseido Bio-Performance eye cream. I apply liberally at night, just a tiny bit before doing my makeup in the morning

As far as managing oil goes:

>Once a week, pore strips on the nose and chin. I personally don't fuss with my forehead since I wear long bangs
>Daily: Blotting paper 2-3 times per day. I use Gatsby (Japanese brand, in the white package) and Clean & Clear interchangeably. Both have positives and negatives. Gatsby sheets are big and have powder coating them which is nice, and they also come 70 to a pack and are pretty cheap (~$5 USD), but they are a rice-paper blend so they make a loud crunchy noise when using them. C&C are easy to find in any drug store and work extremely well, but the sheets are smaller and you only get 30 to a pack for $6-$7.

I'm really not super picky about makeup brands, but my Mom used to work for Lancome and Shiseido so I'm familiar and comfortable with their skincare lines. You can find similar, comparable products and varying price ranges from many companies.

I had dull and oily skin, then I started using an AHA (personally I use Mizon's). After a week of using every other day my face was noticeably brighter, my pores less congested and just generally my skin looked so much better.

Before using any actives though I would suggest working on hydrating your skin. Don't be afraid to use multiple hydrating products in your routine (I use etude house SoonJung toner water with the mizon snail mucin gel and sometimes an essence if I need it). I would also look into your cleanser and see if it's a high or low pH, low is typically better. If your cleanser leaving your face feeling dry or squeaky clean it's probably worth shopping around for others.

Sorry for the info dump lol

Look for products with vitamin c or retinol. iirc you're not supposed to mix the two so go for one or the other. I prefer retinol because it helps prevent acne too.

You don't even have to get something prestige or a serum. You can just use something like Olay and it will work just fine.

So I got the Stila waterproof eyeliner since many gulls recommended it, but for some reason whenever I try to do eyeliner, the product feathers out and i have to make the lines thicker than I want. I have hooded eyes so I don't have a lot of eyelid space to begin with.

Anyone have any tips to get eyeliner to stop feathering?? I really love this eyeliner over my Kat Von D but that one never feathered out on me.

Also, second anon with the eyeliner problem; I can't really help you with it feathering out, but I have extremely hooded eyes as well, and using an extremely thin applicator like this really changed the game for me.
I have to keep the eyeliner very thin if I want any eye shadow to be visible, and using something thin like this really makes it a lot easier

ANON I DID THIS! I learned to sleep on my back because I wanted to learn astral projection and it's recommended you sleep on your back for this. I've always been a side/tummy sleeper but now I can sleep on my back.

What I did was used a small pillow and used that to prop my head up and keep it straight, facing the ceiling. My inclination to turn over always started with wanting to move my head to the side, so the pillow ads support and makes it comfortable for me to sleep on my back

Then, I used podcasts for sleeping to help knock me out or at least distract me from the feeling of being in a weird position until i was tired enough to sleep. My favorite is called Sleep With Me. It's not ASMR (which I hate). Just a guy who tells stories that are interesting enough to keep your mind from turning, but boring enough so you really don't care if you sleep through it. He does things like reading/commenting on the trader Joe's flyer and walking you through old episodes of star trek.

Glossier and Milk are very "millennial aesthetic" brands, which I'll admit their ads totally pull me in lol. They both go for the minimal makeup look (moreso Glossier, Milk is fun editorial). Glossier's best skincare is their milky jelly cleanser and I've heard good things about their new solution exfoliator - everything else is pretty lackluster for the money when you can find better for less (milky jelly is basically CeraVe's hydrating cleanser btw except it can take off light makeup). If you're into natural makeup Glossier does shine there. I want to try their skin tint and concealer. Their boy brow is the most fantastic natural brow product I've found but it isn't so amazing that I NEED it, I'll likely get it again in the future but it isn't that life changing imo (and you already need decent brows for it). Milk has more fun things and for their cream products you get a lot for your money (1 oz!) their holographic highlighters and eye pigments are beautiful and worth the money imo. Haven't looked into their skincare much but it doesn't seem worth the money to me.

So tl:dr they both have one or two great products but don't expect anything life changing.

>> No.9773598

Does it need to be heavy coverage? Personally I always recommend using a light/medium base and then getting a heavy duty concealer - but if you insist on a heavy coverage foundation I've heard Estée Lauder Double Wear and Marc Jacobs Remarcable are among the best for oily skin, along with Dermablend (probably the heaviest coverage of all). If you need something cheaper, I hear the L'Oréal Infalliable Matte is great. I personally like powder foundation in the summer when I'm most oily, I use Lucy Minerals (indepdent brand online, also recommend Meow Cosmetics).

RCMA No color powder is a great translucent setting powder. If you use it with a mattifying foundation it should help oil control. Also look into your skincare to see if you could add more moisture to combat your overproduction of oil.

Need some help. I've been in hospital for surgeries a bunch this past 6 months, and I think the combination of medications I've been on for that have really messed with my skin.

Previously, my skin wasn't really oily, and sometimes got dry in places. I was using a good foaming cleanser, a simple toner, and an oil free green tea moisturiser for everyday, with an apricot oil moisturiser for directly after getting out of the shower to lock in moisture. Then, my skin would occasionally get dry but not often. I was on escitalopram and a hormonal birth control pill.

Now, my skin seems super oily and I have fully formed pimples appearing almost overnight. To combat this, I've switched to a more natural rosehip cleanser, toner, and moisturiser, but I'm trying to be careful not to cleanse my skin too often because it gets even oilier. I use micellar water as a makeup remover but I barely wear makeup now because it makes my skin flare up. I'm also getting pimples on my back for the first time, which is a new level of awful. I have come off the escitalopram, and I am now on an IUD called Mirena instead of the contraceptive pill. I've also switched to linen pillowcases, stopped using fabric softener on my bedsheets, and changed my shampoo.

I realise that my contraceptive pill was controlling my skin a lot, but I don't think my current level of breakouts and oiliness is due solely to that. Any advice, particularly product related? I'm 26, I don't have time for pimples haha.

>I realise that my contraceptive pill was controlling my skin a lot, but I don't think my current level of breakouts and oiliness is due solely to that.

Sorry anon, I hate to be the bearer of bad news but not only was your combined pill addressing any issues you naturally had, but you've now switched to a form of contraception that actively causes acne and skin issues. Doctors will tell you the IUD has less systemic effect because of its placement directly in the womb, but it's actually not. It's more systemic. Serum blood levels of progesterone are the equivalent of two mini-pills a day.

There is nothing you can do topically to address hormonal acne. It may calm down slightly as your body adjusts, but there is nothing you can do to fix it completely aside removing the hormone causing it.

Unless there's a reason that you can't take combined contraception, I'd heavily advise reverting back to it. If not, you might have better luck on a lower dose progesterone only. Go for the mini-pill, because you can cease use immediately if you don't like it. It's very difficult to convince a doctor to remove an IUD or implant. Doctors like long acting reversible contraceptives because they are cheap, but over 50% of women have IUDs removed before necessary. If this were any other medicine, or consumer product for that matter, it would be deemed a failure and withdrawn from the public.

Sorry if this is asking to be spoonfed, but I'm honestly at a loss on what to do and I have no clue what's going on with my skin.

I've always had a simple routine -wash with cleanser in the morning and moisturize. Sometimes I'll use a toner, but not always as they tend to irritate my skin. I'll use a face mask occasionally if my skin is particularly dry or dull. Recently I've been getting what I'm assuming are clogged pores around my chin. They never come to a head, they're just little bumps. If I squeeze them (I try not to) some gross stuff comes out but it doesn't look like that cheese shit that comes out of pimples. Then on my forhead I've been getting small red bumps as well, but they don't pop and they're driving me crazy because they're all over it.

I don't smoke and my diet hasn't changed. They only thing that has changed is I've moved recently but I feel silly for thinking maybe the water has something to do with it. Sorry for the rambling and such, I've never been very good with skincare.

I used to do a Jamaican castor oil mask every week or so and it would make my hair look great for a couple days, but it took 2 washes just to get it all out. I think because it's marketed for very thick hair and not my thin white person hair (hair dresser even commented how fine and easily tangled my hair is the other day ;_;). But I haven't tried any other leave-in conditioners or hair mask treatments. I don't dye my hair either, the pic isn't me haha. I'll look into the leave-ins you recommended, thank you.

I just blow it dry and then straighten out my bangs with a round brush+blow dryer, no other styling. My conditioner says it's a heat protectant too so I don't think it's damaging. If I don't blow dry my hair looks very flat. Pic is how my hair usually looks.

So I had split blonde/brunette hair for 2 years, and dyed it back to brown a few months back for a new job and the bleached part was starting to look damaged. I trimmed it a fair bit when I did this as well.

>> No.9788502

Neither did I before I learned it watching youtube and practicing. No one is born with makeup skills, ffs.

The side you previously dyed is probably more damaged than you think and may be breaking at the ends as well as being slow to grow. Sometimes Biotin is helpful with overall hair growth, so you could try that (be warned, some people get acne from it though)
In terms of keeping your colour I would suggest washing in cold/lukewarm water, not washing more than twice a week, and consider just letting it be slightly asymmetric as every time you dye it you are probably causing more damage

My hair is similiar to Ilay (the girl on the photo, no where as pretty as she is though), I mean if I don't style it a certain way or tie it high and tight, bald lines(?) would appear.

Scalp massage with any oil, doesn't have to be garlic. Try miconazole weekly on your scalp, that's worked well for some people. Wash your hair less and avoid pulling on your roots (no tight braids or ponytails). Check your diet has enough protein and nutrients, and if that's ok try biotin supplements.

I'm probably a minority here since I'm a member of a buy/sell makeup group on Facebook anyway but I don't think it's a problem if the returned products are being used as testers. I thought that's what Sephora did with their returns too. The testers have to get resanitized on a regular basis anyway and the customer should know to proceed with anything open to the general public with caution.

There's no way for Ulta to win this though. If they continue selling the returned products, then people will stop shopping there. If they change their return policy so nothing can be brought back to the store once it leaves or is opened then they'll lose a lot of potential customers since there's pressure to make the 100% correct choice on a product you're trying for the first time.

What concealers/treatments/etc. have you found best to treat or cover undereye dark circles(very dark purple prominent), I’ve been using off-brand undereye masks and caffeine concealers special for dark circles but I haven’t seen any difference for YEARS(or if they do minimize they come back quickly), I need to completely revamp my routine

Sorry for this terrible picture, but on the topic of dark circles and eye bags, is there anything I can do to make the "eyebag" portion of my eye puffier?
Mine are incredibly sunken in, so even though concealer helps cover the discoloration, the area tends to catch a lot of shadows. The only time I have aegyo sal are when I'm smiling, too.
Right now I focus on diet/hydration and moisturizing, with the only skincare/aging products I use being sunscreen and whatever samples come my way. I'm willing to invest in some things if they actually work.
I have combination skin that's somewhat sensitive for reference.

>> No.9809220

Not sure if you can make them puffier. An eye cream will help to moisturize and that could have some effect (and you should be using an eye cream if you're in your late teens/early 20s anyway). There are plenty of options but just for reference, I use Shiseido's Bio-Performance eye cream. They actually discontinued it and replaced it with another product with a different look, but same function. I still find the Bio-Performance at TJ Maxx at a hefty discount (since it's discontinued now) so that's what I'm currently using. I'll switch to the new product when I can't find the older one anymore.

As far as "looking" puffier, you can use an illuminating/highlighting powder on your aegyo sal like you see in a lot of asian makeup tutorials. That will help catch the light and make them look more pronounced.

Inb4 Reddit but I would check out the r/SkincareAddiction and r/AsianBeauty subreddits for information about creating a routine, they have a link to everything you could need. To summarize though you just need a basic cleanser, moisturizer and sunscreen.

Cetaphil, Sebamed, CeraVe and Eucerin are the brands you'll want to start out with for extremely sensitive skin. I love CeraVe but it has broken a lot of people out so do some research/try to figure out what ingredients bother you from past products and narrow what ingredients are the cause of the irritation so you can avoid products with them in the future. I'm sure you know this but avoid things with artificial fragrance and a large amount of essential oils because they'll probably just irritate you. If you're into all natural stuff I suggest looking into oil cleansing because you can create your own oil that works with your skin (even if you don't care about "natural" oils are great one ingredient moisturizers on their own).

Lastly I would stick to products with short ingredient lists as that usually indicates that there will be less potential irritants. And when looking for a sunscreen, I'd stick with physical (meaning the sun protection comes from zinc oxide and titanium dioxide). They're less irritating than chemical and work just as well.

Haven't tried Glossiers concealer but I do have their skin tint. Its very light on application, even the consistency is very watery. Its just enough to give you an even skintone look without covering too much. Although you can look flushed still after using so if thats one of the things your trying to cover its probably not for you.

Another thing too is that you have to make sure your skin is moisturized before applying and NEVER use a primer.

I actually bought a bunch of items recently from there, I used the kits as an idea for what products to use together and what they recommend but otherwise your better off on your own unless you want those exact products. I didnt even bother getting certain things from their site and technically not on the full 10 step thing anyways. You might find that you dont want to do face masks or already have a good sunscreen so buying a kit could potentially be redundant.

Their brushes are alright. Not great not bad. I bought two sets from them. One was the 36 piece ultimate set a year ago and then a 12 set white tipped from years before that. The 12 set was actually pretty good, was very underwhelmed by the quality on the 36 peice though. Some of the eye brushes (round fluffy blender and the smaller one) were super scratchy and some of the other eye brushes (small bullet brush and small filbert brush) are horrible at picking up pigment. They still work but its a hit and miss.

I started the pill about 9 months ago and it has really cleared up my acne big time. However I still have these hormonal pimples around my cheek area.

My sister had pretty bad acne but her skin is 100% clear now and it really cleared up in her mid 20's. It may just go away if you're still in your late teens/early 20's.

With regards to immediate treatment: are they the underground type of pimples that are sore to the touch and un-popable? If so, what I always do for these is the following:

Tea compresses with chamomile and lavender tea bags. Traditional Medicinals and Celestial Seasonings both sell this tea. Chamomile and lavender are both anti-bacterial. Chamomile is an anti-inflammtory agent and will reduce redness and swelling. You may want to do two a night, and it make take 2 nights to notice a big difference but it always works for me.

In addition to the tea bags, put some peppermint oil on the spots right before you go to bed. Peppermint oil is, again, anti-bacterial and a powerful anti-inflammatory. Even my most stubborn and painful underground zits would look so much better in the morning.

So I never really jumped on the whole makeup thing when I was younger and still living with my mom/generally having other women around me so now I'm at a little bit of a loss with learning how to do my makeup and whatnot. There are two big questions burning on my mind.

My eyebrows are fucking thick and wild (I inherited my dad's goddamn gorilla hair genes), and one is naturally arched differently than the other. How do I go about styling them? One time my mom plucked them for me since it was my very first time and it took a long ass time doing the top and bottom and they didn't look any different. Is waxing a viable option? Does it hurt like hell? How do I know if I've overdone it? I've seen little eyebrow threading pop up shops around and about. Is that a decent method for styling them or is it just a meme? Do I still need to fill in the color of them or whatever after fixing them up?

Also, I'm not entirely sure why, but my eyelid on one eye is puffier/droops noticeably more than the other one. My doctor said it might be because I was unknowingly squinting with it or some other issue then didn't mention any options for what I can do to get it looking normal again. Should I be taking that into consideration when I'm applying eye shadow or whichever? People have told me you can't see it unless you're focusing on it/it isn't noticeable at all, but I'm really self-conscious about it anyway. Are there any shortcuts to make it look less noticeable?

I can try and take some photos if needed but I'm not sure how well they'll come out.

>> No.9812700

NAYRT but I used to have the same issue. Changing the pillowcase out every couple days seemed to give me the best results. I ended up actually buying some extra pillowcases, which it made it easier to swap out pillowcases every other day without having to constantly do laundry (or have the pillowcases from a nice bedding set fade prematurely from washing).

Another alternative I've heard is to sleep with a clean towel over your pillow every night. I'm assuming they mean something like a flour sack dish towel rather than a terrycloth towel. Haven't tried it because I move around so much in my sleep that it'd probably fall off, but YMMV.

>> No.9813528

>How do I go about styling them?
Start by tidying up random hairs (like monobrow, outside brow area ones) then evening the arch up from underneath to the same height and shape. This may mean you pluck one to match the other, or pluck them both to the same shape. Once you've done that, do the edges/on top further to make them even. Some people trim the length of their brow hair as well.
>Is waxing a viable option?Does it hurt like hell?How do I know if I've overdone it?
Yes, and imo it doesn't hurt more than threading but I wouldn't DIY if you aren't experienced. You run the risk of pulling out hair at the roots that was creating shape elsewhere, and having a random bald spot in your brows you need to fill in. You'll know if you've overdone it.

>I've seen little eyebrow threading pop up shops around and about. Is that a decent method for styling them or is it just a meme?
Yup threading is fine. Hurts like a wax though, and make sure you go to shop staff that have nice looking brows because they likely do each other's.

>Do I still need to fill in the color of them or whatever after fixing them up?
Not if you like how they look as is. If you want instagram drag queen brows though, fill them.

You can look at older people who tanned in their youth to see UV damage. You wouldn't be wrong to think buying all your makeup with SPF is going to make a difference. The makeup isn't generally applied heavy enough to make a difference, and high SPF sunscreen can only last half a day at most. You are best off avoiding sun exposure.

>Does anyone know how to determine what your skin type is?

Theres no quiz or anything lol. You just figure it out from what the description of oily or dry skin sounds like. Combination skin isnt really all that uncommon, but from the description your giving, you have oily skin. The dryness from what you described is probably because your skin is stripped from washing it. Otherwise if the dryness is constantly present hen you have combination skin.

>I want to know because I'm getting into skincare, to get rid of my bumpy textured skin, and I dont want my skin to get any worse.

Honestly the best tip I can give you for having oily skin is to use an oil cleanser and double cleanse. It sound counter-intuitive but like dissolves like. So washing your face with oil can actually help break down the excess dirt and sebum on your skin. Double cleansing is when you clean your skin with a water based cleanser afterwards to further remove excess oil. A problem that I have found with my skin is that if I use a cleanser hats too harsh my skin dries out afterwards even if I'm normally oily. Which can cause more problems because once ur skin is stripped the sebum production can become overactive and make your skin more oily.

The Heroine make items are definitely great! If you're looking for more Japanese cosmetics, canmake has a great cream blush, and Dolly Wink make great lashes. I haven't tried them, but Canmake also has some eyeshadow quads that seem like pretty good quality. You've definitely got some good basics, though! You might not even need more than that. But do make sure you have a good eye makeup remover--the Heroine Make mascara doesn't budge otherwise.

I just received a pretty vulgar blush in one of my subscription boxes this month. It was powdery and using a brush on it left a lot of dust in the pan, also the color pigmentation wasn't great. I'm glad it was free,. but it really doesn't make me excited to try their other items.

Is there a full skincare routine worth of products that I can get for under $50? Or what's the lowest I can go in terms of price?

I wash my face every morning and evening but I feel like it's not enough as I've recently found myself plagued with clogged pores on my forehead/chin. I'm running out of face wash soon so I figured that I'll grab some new stuff while I'm out buying more. I'm thinking all I need is a new face wash, a toner, and possibly a weekly mask? I've never had a full skincare routine before and I'd love to clear my skin or at least even out my natural complexion a bit more. There's only so much drinking tons of water and washing my face can do I suppose.

>> No.9819175

I should add that my skin type is generally dry. Not severely so, but I get kinda crusty around my nose and on my cheeks if I skip a face wash for a day. Definitely in need of some exfoliation as well.

I'm really late to the conversation, but I wanted to give my opinion on the subject of Wet n' Wild. I really like their Coloricon kohl eyeliner in black and dark brown. It had worked for me on par with more expensive brands. I don't like the lighter colors though. They don't have a lot of pigment payoff. I can also fully recommend their Megaslicks balm stain. I use the colors 'Red-dy or Not' and 'A Stiff Pink' all the time. I also love their Pout & Kiss gel lip balm for chap stick.

On the subject of Kat Von D, I do really like their tattoo liner in black. I agree with >>9790098 that I've found Maybelline the best equivalent with the Master Precise liquid liner, but it still doesn't compare to the tattoo liner in my opinion. It's worth the splurge if you can spare the $20 in the future.

I can't help with foundation because I appear to be allergic to all of it. I still haven't found a foundation that won't break me out despite trying out higher end brands including Smashbox and Makeup Forever Ultra HD. I think there might be something crucial to formulating foundation that I have a sensitivity to. I suffer.

The moistfull collagen is really moisturising. I have dry skin and I use the cream and the emulsion at night, but find them a little heavy for day use.

>> No.9819363

The main two things you need is cleanser (face wash) and moisturiser (esp if you have dry skin). Adding in a toner (to refresh and get rid of residue cleanser), a serum (concentrated skin ingredients), a mask and eye cream (undereyes need extra hydration) if budget allows. Also, sunscreen is good if you are concerned about aging and skin pigmentation, although finding one you dont hate can be a struggle.

Hi guys, me here again, I went and ordered some of canmakes blush! they look so cute I'm excited for them to get here! :-D

I wanted to asked about two things. I've currently no brushes, and I'm not really sure what to go for. I've looked at the Too Faced Teddy bear set, but I think I'm only really interested in it because.... the charm on the bag is... too adorable....

I'm also interested in the Too Faced Peachy Mattes eyeshadow palette. So basically... anyone experience with these two things? worth the price? better things out there? I see people say Too Faced is more about the packaging than actual quality of the product and I don't want to buy something that looks cute only to have it turn out to be shit.

>> No.9821180

I have the too faced teddy bear brushes and they’re very cute and soft. I like them a lot, but they’re pretty expensive. I’ve had a good experience with it cosmetics brushes, and brushes from the store Claire’s.

Too Faced doesn’t have the worst quality products, but their product isn’t the best either. Anastasia Beverly Hills renaissance palette is a good palette imo, it has some reds/oranges if you feel crazy and some browns for if you want to do a more natural color. I use the brush that comes with it.

>> No.9821352

Collagen molecules are too large to pass through the skin barrier so no, they won't work collagen-wise. Depending on the other ingredients in the product, you may or may not see a difference in your skin. Doings a basic google search shows that collagen pills work (not in the way of direct collagen going to your skin, your body breaks it down first), but there won't be much of a difference if you're already eating a balanced diet that allows your body to make high amounts of it. Since your body produces collagen on its own and has to break down the pills before using the remaining amino acids to create collagen, you may consider just consuming foods that have a lot of it and vitamin C.

No experience with the Too faced teddy bear set. I have the peachy mattes eyeshadow palette, and while very good and colors blend out nicely, pulls really warm and is all matte. I honestly don't reach for it very much. I usually like a bit of shimmer in my eyeshadow particularly for lolita looks. Personally, I think a good cheap beginner palette is the Etude House sakura palette, particularly for lolita. While not the most pigmented, colours blend out well and it comes with sparkle and shimmer colors perfect for warm toned lolita styles. The drawback I'd say is that it doesn't have the most transition shades, so your looks end up samey after a while.

Colourpop also has great palettes, and I'd recommend Dream St. or Give it To me Straight for a good warm toned neutral palette. Dream St also has pops of teal that surprisingly works well with the rest of the palette if you're into that.

If you want a more expensive palette that performs better, I'd recommend either ABH modern renaissance, or their new soft glam palette. Unfortunately, it comes with a steeper learning curve as the shadows are very pigmented and you need to blend out for ages if you get too much on your lid, but if you go slow and put only little bits of shadow on at a time you'll be grand.

I've included the palettes compared to the peachy mattes for comparison. Personally, I think Sakura Etude house is closest, but it's up to you and what you want. I like Soft Glam/Modern Renaissance the most, I would say Give it to Me Straight would be the most versatile.

Thanks so much for all the options! Yes looking at them the soft glam palette is really beautiful... I think I'll have to go with it instead! I really appreciate you taking the time to do this :-)

You can't go wrong with that choice! I own it and the eyeshadows are beautiful and soft and pigmented - I'm glad they went back to that formula after the subculture debacle.

This happened to my Sephora order before, tracking didn't update and items were left overnight in my mailbox. Everything was frozen solid. Called up Sephora to question about if the products would still be safe to use and they offered to refund or exchange/reship right away for no extra charge.

Any BHA recs for sfs? Pretty sure I'm allergic to TO's SA after a few trials.

A brow product (pencils are probably the easiest to use), brows can really frame the face and make you look more put together. For early work days I only fill in my brows and sometimes do just base makeup (generally a cushion bb).

Wonder Pore toner is generally raved about but probably not great if you have sensitive skin. Moistfull Collagen has a nice gel cream but also avoid if you have sensitive skin.

Just darken the eyelash line with a pencil, try and see how it looks if you do your lower lashes as well.I can’t tell if it would suit you just by looking at the eye shape so you need to see it and judge yourself. Anyway it shouldn’t be too heavy but enhancing

What's with spray sunscreens? Are they good? How would you know if you are applying the correct amount?

>> No.9824817

I use the Neutrogena 100+ spray sunscreen all the time. For the most part it works great, and is clear (no white streaks) when applying. Note, even with spray sunblock it is important to rub it in to get even coverage. It's pretty easy to tell if you're using too much because it's thin and you will literally be dripping if you over apply.
Also, don't stand right next to your car windows when you're applying the spray. And be careful if you're applying it in a bathroom with tile on the floor, it will get slippery. Ask me how I know.

>> No.9824892

Currently trying the returning A-Sol, no big improvements so far. Will probably purchase the blackhead power liquid next haul to try.

No Stridex in my country unfortunately. Are you referring to the blackhead power liquid? I know they have 3 different BHA products in like a toner/treatment form and I know the A-Sol ones were suppose to be much weaker.

>> No.9826108

Aw, thanks for the suggestions everyone!

I'll give it a shot. That'll be easy because I can likely get a sample from the makeup lady at Belk's. She's really good about giving out sample containers from what other people have told me. I haven't tried Clinique before. I kind of went from drug store quality to super high end quality, but haven't tried anything in-between.
I have seriously been considering getting one of the starter kits for Bare Minerals. I might want to wait until I go to the city for that one since my skin tone is hard to match. Even with the HD foundation, I had to mix two different shades. (I felt really bad having to return those since it was almost $100.)
We'll see. Ah, I'm 100% certain I'm allergic to anything in silicone family which rules out pretty much all foundation and primer. Even with my moisturizer, I use a weird brand from Sally's just because it contains nothing silicone-based. I'm not really worried about the bismuth oxychloride, but I am worried about the zinc oxide. I'm not 100% sure if I'm allergic to zinc oxide, but all the powders I've tried have broke me out too. So far, zinc oxide appears to be the common ingredient. (Also, the sunscreens I've used before containing zinc oxide seem to break me out, but most sunscreens are pretty comedogenic.)

Wish me luck.

Moisturize daily, eczema doesn't help you look cute. I have lush's charity pot which is great when you have skin that's sensitive or prone to drying out/cracking(though that's more a hand problem for me). Usually I use the Biore charcoal pore minimizer on a daily basis or every other day because I work in a kitchen and my flesh is just achin for that grease.
Once or twice a week I use the Lush's Just to clarify mask, it's really gentle and helps really flush the death from my face. And then usually every sunday I use a tonymoly face mask, either the megatox moist shot or I'm aloe moisturizing sheet.
