Cleansers - CLINIQUE - Liquid Facial Soap - Mild

12 hours ago

This is my strongest facial cleanser and the only one I use that contains sulfates. I use it when I need a strong cleanse, usually at night when I want to remove my lotions and sunscreens from the day. It works really well with a Clarisonic and bubbles a lot whichever way you use it. It has a pleasant soapy scent as there is no fragrance added like all Clinique products. Don’t get it in your …Read more

Toners - CLINIQUE - Clarifying Lotion #3

I buy the large automatic pump bottles of this and don’t laugh, not to use on my face. It contains mucho alcohol which I don’t ever use on my face in any product. What I use it for is my armpits. It negates shaving bumps, yes... but using an exfoliating acid on your underarms makes you never smell ever. It doesn’t prevent sweat so I still use deodorant (Donna Karan cashmere mist deodorant which …Read more

Moisturizers - CLINIQUE - Dramatically Different Moisturizing Lotion [REFORMULATED]

DDML+ is a light-textured, basic scent free and yet *very* effective moisturizing daily lotion... definitely for VERY DRY to dry skin! It would leave a greasy mess if you don’t need major moisture! The newer clear DDM jelly is just a watery hydrating serum. It has no occlusive agents to seal anything in and thenceforth needs something over it to prevent evaporation and trans epidermal water loss …Read more

Toners - CLINIQUE - Clarifying Lotion 1.0 Twice a Day Exfoliator

Every morning, I use an acid exfoliating toner after cleansing. My goal is anti aging. This contains a low dose of bha (salycilic acid if I spelled that right), and is the acid toner I reach for when I’m sensitive from my other actives (tretinoin mainly). It’s the only Clinique clarifying lotion sans alcohol which by itself is a boon to me; I don’t use alcohol on my face ever. I don’t really get …Read more

Treatments (Face) - Deciem - The Ordinary Resveratrol 3% + Ferulic Acid 3%

This is a great powerful antioxidant - ferulic is mixed with the legendary SkinCeuticals c serum. That’s too much money that I’d ever in a million years spend. Long Live The Ordinary. I mix this with vitamin c (l ascorbic acid - one of the ordinary’s) & a drop of alpha lipoic acid in the morning, and Ascorbyl Tetraisopalmitate vitamin c + this + alpha lipoic acid at night. They say it …Read more

I use this differently than prescribed. It is both water and oil soluble. I use minuscule drops in my twice daily vitamin c serum that I mix also with the ordinary reveratrol + ferulic. It enhances other antioxidants. It is so diluted this way that it doesn’t irritate my skin. I know that they say it degrades in sunlight, but I wear sun protection and don’t go in the sun at all except like …Read more

Foundations - Maybelline New York - Dream Matte Mousse

I am, unfortunately for my wallet, a HE foundation & makeup snob. I rarely (rarely for me.. possibly quite often for a less makeup-obsessed individual) delve into the drugstore makeup aisle. However, right now is the first time in a while I am very tanned from BOTH self/spray tan + real tan. So my typical summer >nw30-ish is colliding deeper into my fake tan go-to of nc42-3. I have a much …Read more

Foundations - bareMinerals - ORIGINAL Loose Powder Foundation - Warm Tan

5.0

1 month ago

My skin is very hard to match color wise when I have a tan (natural tan from sun that is sometimes augmented by self tanner) since I have some red ruddy undertones that peek through the deep natural golden tan. Like, no mac is matching me at all right now although I carry an nc42 or 44 powder+ foundation in purse (for touch ups but don’t really need with BE). Idk what made me come back to this as …Read more

I have this in both shades, lighter one for my nw20/30 untanned face and the darker one for my nc43-ish tan. So I obviously love it! I use the Mac concealer brush I think it’s the 270s??? the one that is flat top slanted (not like a mini paddle foundation brush like most concealer brushes). That’s an awesome brush btw. You can also warm the product into skin by gently tapping w finger. The con of …Read more
