FOUND THE MIRACLE CURE FOR EXTREMELY DRY AND SENSITIVE SKIN. seriously.Prior to using this, the most relief I got was from extra virgin coconut oil- my skin happens to like it and I'm of the lucky band who never break out from this (though I do from other oils and butters), but it got to a point where this was just not enough. I tried sandalwood oil last winter and it made me so much worse (poor dilution on my part, and I skipped the patch test). So that turned me off essential oils for a year, until despair kicked in. I mixed two drops frankincense into a teaspoon of coconut oil ( i'm sure a different carrier substance would be fine too, for those who dislike coconut) and rubbed that into my face after a face scrub. It felt amazing, it improved the texture of the coconut oil somehow so that it sank into my skin gladly, and soon enough the itching, stabbing, piercing pain and sensitivity stopped and my face felt more hydrated. I added more carrier oil, then a drop of lavender and vetivert too, and am on my third day of using this two to three times a day, and am beyond grateful for the relief. My skin is well enough now so that I can wear foundation again without feeling completely dried out and burning, and the cold and wind are easier to tolerate. I even use this around my eyes and though they otherwise are sensitive to products, I'm fine as long as I try to not get it right into my eyes. The frankincense alone was very helpful, but since I had the other two oils that also soothe and repair, I mixed them in. I already use lavender in c.o. to speed up eyebrow growth (works if you massage it in, but so far not so much on the patches where I am missing brow hair from past overplucking) so mixing it all in an "everything ointment" is practical. My complexion is much more even and radiant, my foundation is starting to look dewy on me, and I swear this somehow relaxes facial muscles. Maybe it's the massage that's contributing (though I had to massage plain c.o. too and it didn't work like this) but the deep "monkey lines" I was starting to get on my forehead have diminished, and my asymmetrical nasolabial lines have softened unbelievably. I don't ever want to stop using this. It helps my hands too, ruined by weather, hot and cold water, cleaners, disinfectant, sharp tools. But I can't reapply as often as I want to, at least without having to wash my hands or expose them to stressors again so can't heal them completely yet.I'm using this on my neck as well because I'm getting lots of fine lines and loss of elasticity and I hope it improves. I did not use the do terra oil pictured above, but the highest quality brand available in my country. My frankincense is boswellia carterii, not as popular as some other types but works just fine for me.I'm certain this would work with a different carrier substance, for those who don't tolerate coconut oil, as again, my carrier oil wasn't helpful before I added the essential oils. I will be thrilled if this helps someone else, as I was desperate for relief before I tried it. So far no negatives, but will update if I develop any.

Accutane was literally the ONLY thing that cured my moderate-severe hormonal acne. I tried so many products to help my acne but none of them helped. Accutane completely got rid of my acne ! I was on 50mg for 7 months. My lips got really really dry and I got nosebleeds a few times but it was worth it! I also used the CeraVe moisturiser for dry skin and that really helped keep away any skin dryness. Accutane is a godsend!

I really wanted to love this after all the hype SokoGlam gave it. It was affordable and the ingredients looked great. But after 2-3 bottles, I have to conclude that this does nothing for my skin. After switching to SK-II there simply is no comparison. I guess it’s better to have a super concentrated product than a product that contains a million ingredients? That’s just my theory. Oh well, I really tried to love this but it just wasn’t hydrating or brightening. It was like literally splashing water on my face. I did love the pretty holographic box it came in for whatever that’s worth.

I've never used a tubing mascara before, so I don't know if this is a good or not, but I can say that this doesn't smudge, flake, or otherwise budge from my eyes from the time I apply it to the time I remove it. It makes my lashes super black, and very long. It doesn't do much for volumizing, but that's a tubing mascara thing and not this bring crappy. Would I repurchase? Probably. I mean I don't hate it, but I've yet to find a drugstore mascara I'm faithful to and I don't think this one is The One. But if nothing new catches my eye in the next few months I'd repurchase this.

I'm on my second bottle of this Holy Grail conditioner. It is -cone free and protein free, and it leaves my dry, frizzy hair shiny, soft, and smooth. No suspicious ingredients as far as I can tell, and not tested on animals. Great slip and nice scent. And it's only $6 CAD and available at London Drugs in Canada. I tried it on a whim one day because it was on sale and was protein free...I'm glad I did! One day I might try the shampoo as well.
