What are you watching? (Don't be a spoil sport - spoiler your spoilers)
We're blabbing about everything else these days, I figured I'd check in and see what people are watching when it comes to TV shows and movies!   It would be foolish to think that this thread could remain spoiler free, so let's be courteous to one another and be sure to spoiler your spoilers. If you don't know how, it's that super adorable little yellow button on the toolbar, located to the right of the bold/italic/underline/strikeout buttons.    DONT FORGET: If you happen to be the most recent post, your first sentence or two of your post will show up EVEN IF ITS IN A SPOILER. So please take care if you're going to go dropping spoiler bombs.    Anywho... I just saw the movie PHOENIX last night and it was absolutely spectacular. Like Academy Award spectacular. If you're fortunate enough have showings in your area, I cannot urge you enough to go see it.    So whatcha'll watchin' these days? What are you anxiously waiting for to start back up?

SKIN CARE..Breakout control
Hey guys! I had a question regarding to skin care products. So, recently I’ve been experiencing some serious breakouts. My face has always been in good condition, and I have been using several products to do that (Kiel’s, Korean skincare, Fresh), in addition to that I always thought that good genes are another reason for my ‘problemless’ skin (my mom and sister have the best skin ever!!). However, the breakouts that I now have consist on small acne look-like pimples and are in only one section of the face (the right one and forehead), the left part is perfectly fine. I believe that my T-zone has recently become more oily than usual and that’s the reason behind this breakout. So I’m looking for a good moisturizer (oil-free), cleanser, and mask. I’d like to note that I’m allergic to tea tree oil so what do you guys suggest? Thank youuuu!!

I have dry skin and some mild redness on my cheeks and chin and some mild acne along my jawline that Im pretty positive is hormonal acne.

pH of products
Today I did some pH testing of products that interest me and here are the results:   Toners that are awesome at pH adjusting: Neutrogena Pore Refining Toner ph = 3   Bad: Belif Problem Solution Toner ph = 5 (upsetting!) Clarins Extra Comfort Toning Lotion ph = 5   AHA/BHA that have a good pH: Paula's Choice BHA 2% Liquid ph = 2.5 Derma e Overnight Peel with AHA ph = 3   Not so good: Peter Thomas Roth AHA/BHA Acne Clearing Gel ph = 5 Cosrx BHA Bleackhead Power Liquid ph = 5 (This one kinda upsets me, how comes it is five? I always thought its around 3 or 4)   Serums with low pH: Good Genes (super low pH)   Not so good Peter Thomas Roth Camu Camu Vitamin C Brightening Mask ph = 5 Andalou Naturals Turmeric + C Enlighten Serum ph =5

Thank you Sephora and Sol de Janeiro!
I just want to say THANK YOU SO MUCH to Sephora and Sol de Janeiro for sending me the original Brazilian Bum Bum Cream and the new Acai Body Power Cream au gratis! I have never tried the Bum Bum Cream but have heard amazing things, and am so excited to have the chance to try the new version as the same time. They both smell quite nice! The Bum Bum Cream is slightly tropical but in no way overpowering, and the Acai Body has a fresh, almost pine, sweet forest scent. Both are in no way greasy. I think these will make a nice addition to my body care collection!

Vitamin C Purge?
Hello! I was hoping you guys could help me figure out if i'm purging or having a bad reaction to the Drunk Elephant C-Firma Day Serum.  I started it on Tuesday, using it every second morning.  I have since broken out in four new pimples and one that was barely there when I started has come to the surface.    I know that Vitamin C can cause a purging like this and I was just hoping for some help determining if that's what's happening.  I would really like to know before I use it for a month and totally wreck my face (it scars really easily unfortunately).    Thanks in advance!

Foundation look terrible...
g HI all!   i have redness on my forehead, nose, and chin. I would like to use a foundation to cover it, and I've tried for like 3 years. Every time I do a full face of foundation, all the hair on my face shoes up and looks gross and it cakes. Should I wax my face or shave it or something? And I need a reliable foundation that is less than $20. I really want to figure all this out, so ANY advice is really appreciated.

FIs Sephora Purifying & Mattifying Mud Mask supposed to cause a breakout as "detox"?
For about the last 8 weeks, I've been struggling with tiny whiteheads (clogged pores) showing up on my forehead. I've never had this issue before and overall I don't have bad skin so I don't really know what to do to treat this. After some reading, I purchased the Sephora Brand Purifying & Mattifying Mud Mask. I used it on a Monday afternoon and woke up Tuesday morning to a forehead full of new tiny whiteheads, more than I had before. There were more new ones when I woke up the next day, even though I hadn't used the mask again. Is this normal because the mask is supposed to be purifying and detoxing the skin? With consistent use 1-2 times a week, will that stop happening?
