@RGbrown Whew, I'm glad you did this; you just saved me the time I'd planned to investigate later tonight. 🤣 SLES might not be gentle enough for some folks with sensitive skin, but it's much gentler than SLS.

A'ight, who needs a quick polish overload? Everyone, yes? 😂 A couple of deals at Ciate! The 2019 calendar is currently $25 (I have this one and highly recommend it! It was my first experience with the brand, and I have been suitably impressed, *especially* for only $25). While the bottles are small, the brush is a nice size, wide with rounded edges, but not so big that it's unmanageable. The formula is great, most creams are super easy two-coaters (the yellow was a bit fussy, but most every yellow is), and they did a nice job with adding some fun toppers that give you lots of options for varying combinations. The 2020 calendar is currently $39. It looks to have a few more nude/soft shade polishes than I would typically want, so I'm passing for now (but all bets are off it ever hits $25 as well lol). Free shipping at $35, and free eye patches at $40 (must add to bag) with code FREESMILE

Hi there!I too have dry skin and I’ve found that if I attempt to use a face brush that hasn’t been cleaned between uses, I get similar results to what you are mentioning. That may not be the culprit in your case but just throwing that out there. I clean my brushes after each use and have bought multiple sets so I have back ups in case I get a case of the lazies. Hopefully someone else has a better answer!

Hi @the1browntown ! I try to keep my showers simple and under 15 minutes long. Most nights, my showers last 5 minutes. My body skin type/behavior and issues: SpoilerDry all year long, especially my legs—and most especially my thighs. It doesn't help that I used to exfoliate my whole body several times a week, every week, with scrubby gloves in the shower. I'm now a recovering body over-exfoliator. 😄 I have chronic hives on one side of my body and keratosis pilaris (KP) on my forearms. Too much rubbing or pressure on most parts of my body causes a red inflammation flare that sticks around for hours. Dry all year long, especially my legs—and most especially my thighs. It doesn't help that I used to exfoliate my whole body several times a week, every week, with scrubby gloves in the shower. I'm now a recovering body over-exfoliator. I have chronic hives on one side of my body and keratosis pilaris (KP) on my forearms. Too much rubbing or pressure on most parts of my body causes a red inflammation flare that sticks around for hours. Here's everything I use on my body, excluding my scalp & hair (eh, I shampoo once a week): PM Pre- or post-shower, 2-3 times a month: AHA exfoliant on my arms and legs. I rotate through different products. Currently using Skinfix Resurface+ Glycolic Renewing Body Scrub pre-shower or Paula’s Choice Skin Revealing Body Lotion 10% AHA post-shower. The Skinfix product contains some ingredients I can’t use on my face or neck, so I have to be careful about that. Shower: SpoilerThough I shower each night, my arms and legs get body wash only once or twice a week. My sweaty workouts happen at night, so I don't have to take multiple showers during the day. I haven't gone for a daytime run since February 2020; when/if I restart running in the afternoon, I'll have to do some kind of quick wash so I don't sit around in sweat and extra bacteria for the rest of the day. But for now: Lukewarm water CeraVe Hydrating Cleanser Bar (also wash my face with it in the shower) The INKEY List Oat Cleansing Balm 5 oz/ 150 mL on certain inflamed areas, if needed; it’s a nice 5-10 minute soothing mask for body and face Paula's Choice CLEAR Pore Normalizing Acne Cleanser 6 oz/ 177 mL , used occasionally on my back, shoulders, and armpits Nylon exfoliating shower towel to wash my back; I try not to use it on the rest of my body Aveeno Therapeutic Shaving Gel + a non-disposable razor, used once every 1-2 weeks to keep my armpits less stinky; I don’t shave my legs unless I plan to go bare-legged and feel like removing leg hair (eh, I don’t always; I’m not grossed out by body hair) Though I shower each night, my arms and legs get body wash only once or twice a week.

Current rotation: Paula's Choice Hyaluronic Acid Booster 0.5 oz/ 15 mL , The INKEY List Niacinamide Oil Control Serum 1 oz/ 30 mL , Pyunkang Yul Mist Toner, and Paula's Choice CLINICAL Niacinamide 20% Treatment 0.67 oz/ 20 mL Aveeno lotion(s), based on what my skin needs that night (always applied to damp skin): Baby Daily Moisture Lotion - my usual lotion Daily Moisturizing Body Lotion - my other usual lotion (formula’s almost identical to the baby version) Restorative Skin Therapy Oat Repairing Cream - often used on my neck, chest, and thighs Eczema Therapy Daily Moisturizing Cream - used wherever I’ve got inflammation flares/hives Artis Oval 10 Brush to apply lotion to my back; it’s just long enough to reach where my short arms can’t Routine natural deodorant, usually the scents Superstar, Cat Lady, The Curator, or Sexy Sadie (I’d love to use good ol’ antiperspirant because aluminum's not evil; unfortunately, my pits developed sensitivity to it) Microfiber plush/high-pile hair towel, lightly patted just so I’m not dripping water everywhere; I make sure my skin’s still damp Paula’s Choice CLEAR Acne Body Spray on my armpits and occasionally my back Treatments for face that didn’t work or are no longer needed - random frequency, and I don’t apply each one night, but I’d rather use them on my body than waste them.

Usually during the day on a weekend. I love soothing oat soaks (Aveeno's is very simple and effective for me), but I'm also still addicted to various Lush bath bombs and soaks. I like my bath water warm: not hot, but warm enough that I won't feel like I'm being refrigerated within an hour of tub time. During baths, I usually have a full pot of tea or a bottle of wine (or sometimes bourbon) beside the tub, and a book to read.
