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?

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

I need a good skincare routine
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. I need a good skincare regimen that will most importantly help with my acne if there is anything I can use for hormonal acne before having to break down and see a dermatologist and also some stuff for the dryness and redness that wont aggravate my acne anymore than it already is.

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?

Q. Oily, acne prone skin since quitting birth control. Skin regimen suggestions?
Hello! I have always had very oily skin (I can soak up 2 oil sheets and usually go for a 3rd by mid-day). I was on birth control for 10 years and recently went off of the pill. During the time I was on the pill I always used the Clinique for combination skin regimen with cleanser, toner, and moisturizer twice a day because I had occasional acne.   Since going off of the pill my acne has increased to the point where makeup isn't doing the job. It's definitely worse when I'm on my period, but generally I don't have a day where I don't have any acne. Right now I have cystic acne.   I tried the Murad acne solutions for 3 months and didn't see a difference. I recently quit that and started using Aveda, so right now my morning and evening regimen is just the Aveda foaming cleanser and their acne pads, along with the Clinique Moisture Surge, but no difference. I also use Origins Super Spot Remover.   Could someone recommend some better products that may help to clear my acne for good and to keep my oily skin at bay?
