Treatments (Face) - Unlisted Brand - about-face essentials resQoil

As a reformed oil-phobe, I am still amazed by how much I love resQoil. Michelle was right, my skin needs it, complimenting both my other retinol and vitamin C treatments. The alpha lipoic acid shrinks my pores and brightens my skin with a no-highlighter required sheen. A few drops of this oil serum disappears completely after 10 minutes and my skin seems to reduce my over-active sebum …Read more

Treatments (Face) - StriVectin - s.t.a.r.light Retinol Night Oil

Purchased during a business trip after spilling my retinol oil on the bathroom floor - Argh. Love the flexibility and power of a retinol, so this seemed like the logical choice, but not so much. Although the product was light, I found the scent heavy-handed. Worse yet, it only took 2 days before the arrival of my first blemish. Not sure of just how much retinol this product provides, but know …Read more

More skeptic than optimistic, other vitamin b3 products only helped to increase breakouts. Happy that existing eruptions seemed to heal faster in the 1st week, but didn't expect anymore . Hello?? Used 3x a week for 6 weeks, nothing, no zits!!!! Holy heck, who knew that niacinamide was my answer and why didn't they tell me??? No clue why it is working, but it is, blessed be!

Skincare - Face - Drunk Elephant - C-Firma Day Serum

Love their philosophy, especially embracing cruelty-free, but not wowed with the results. The consistency was light and set quickly. Though fragrancefree, it smelled heavenly. After using the very last drop, I think that it was a great moisturizer, but without the usual benefits from other c serums. Not likely to repurchase, but may try other products.

Love this product which lets me add retinol to any skincare and control the dosage! Returning to retinol recently, it lets dial back when I need to and scale up for less sensitive areas. Just add 1 drop to my moisturizer for my chin, 2 for my nose, and 3 for my forehead, with one product! After my skin reconditions to retinol, it can also be applied as a facial oil. Blown away and it's …Read more

OMG, love arestore! When I gave up red meat, I learned that most retinols are sourced from animal liver and stopped cold turkey!
Years of searching for an alternative and wow-less betacarotenes, my neighbor turned me onto arestore, a vegan retinol. Light, nongreasy, and vegan with no parabens or dimethicone. I never miss red meat, but have totally missed retinol. I'm in heaven.

Powders - Dr. Hauschka - Translucent Face Powder (Loose)

2.0
Created with Sketch.

Nov/13/2017

I strongly agree with the Dr Hauschka philosophy - green beauty all the way. Application was a snap, finely-milled powder was invisible, not too drying and not too shiny. Felt good, looked good and doing good. That lasted for 3 days, followed by 2 weeks of angry zits near my mouth and forehead. Aargggh, returned and never looking back or chancing it again. Oh, the container is a mess-maker and …Read more

Dealing with acne isn't new, but compounded with the rapidly approaching middle age - eeek. Finding a foundation that doesn't have dimethicone, break me out, or age me, is nearly impossible! This foundation is as close as it gets. No concern over dubious chemicals, it covers while not making my skin any worse. Available in a ton of shades, I use multiple daily. A quick spritz of …Read more
