@Merrie1970 What you want to look for in a cream product brush is a brush with more dense bristles that tapers down along the edges for easy blending. SEPHORA COLLECTION PRO Cream Shadow Brush #28 SEPHORA COLLECTION PRO Shadow Brush #14 When adding intensity to the center of your shadow fingers are always the best tool.

Hi @cirex ! I looked at the product list for that video and have a few suggestions. For acne, try replacing The Ordinary Glycolic Acid 7% Toning Solution with a BHA (salicylic acid) product like The INKEY List Beta Hydroxy Acid (BHA) Blemish + Blackhead Serum or one of the Paula's Choice leave-on BHA exfoliants (most folks love the Skin Perfecting 2% Exfoliating Liquid; for myself, I prefer the CLEAR Anti-Redness Exfoliating Solution because my skin has inflammation issues). Unlike AHAs like glycolic acid, BHA is oil soluble, so it can get down into your pores to degunk them.SpoilerAs with AHA, you should use BHA no more than 3 times a week so you don't over-exfoliate your skin. In fact, you could keep The Ordinary AHA toner in your routine and still include a BHA exfoliant. Just alternate between them (your skin may not be ready to try layering them); consider them your 1-3 times/week toner step. For now, I'd completely back off on the AHA and switch to a BHA, using that just once a week. As with AHA, you should use BHA no more than 3 times a week so you don't over-exfoliate your skin.

For now, I'd completely back off on the AHA and switch to a BHA, using that just once a week. If your skin doesn't usually feel dehydrated (for instance, no flaky dry patches where you're oily), you might not need The Ordinary Hyaluronic Acid 2% + B5 1 oz/ 30 mL . There's also hyaluronic acid in The INKEY List Niacinamide Oil Control Serum , so you'll still get the benefits of that wonderful humectant ingredient. Hmm, that cleanser: The Kiehl's Since 1851 Calendula Deep Clean Foaming Face Wash 7.7 oz/ 230 ml is something I can't use on my own combo skin because it contains bad-for-me essential oils (lemon peel, geranium, and cymbopogon schoenanthus which is lemongrass oil); that stuff would cause a big ol' bad reaction on my skin. But if it works well for you, that's great! There are other good cleanser options for oily skin: Paula's Choice makes a few, and you might wanna consider CeraVe's foaming cleanser or even their hydrating cleanser. About oily skin in general: some people's oily skin is due to genetics, just as dry skin and combo skin are largely genetic. So, you might not be able to get rid of your oily skin; your sebaceous glands might always overproduce oil. And that's okay! Sure, it can be annoying; I call my oily zone the grease pit in the middle of my otherwise dry face. 🤣You can try to reduce the oil production with niacinamide and keep your pores clear with BHA, but don't get frustrated if your skin's still kinda oily even after all that. There's nothing wrong with having oily skin. 🙂 SpoilerThere are other reasons for overproductive oil glands, like dehydration: it's possible for skin to be so dehydrated, it overproduces oil to compensate for lack of moisture. But not all oily skin is dehydrated (again, genetics play a big role in skin type), and not all dehydrated skin is oily. Also, hormones can affect skin type and acne. But if all or most of your face usually feels oily with no "help, I need water" look and feel, then oiliness could just be your genes' doing.

@zeenyyy It depends on which aspect of your combination skin you find more problematic. The fresh toner balances by leaving a rose oil residue on your skin and will help more with the dry patches. It will help minimize your oil production over time by providing an outside source of oil. A lot of skin overproduces oil as a result of being dehydrated so this could be beneficial. The Innisfree toner will leave your skin feeling more immediately fresh and a little less hydrated but also balanced. It does contain green tea seed oil which is hydrating but not as heavy on the skin as the rose oil. It’s also a lot more affordable. There’s always the option of buying a separate oil to add to particularly dry patches as needed.

Ooooh this has been in and out of my basket more than a few times, @itsfi 🤩 It seems as though the gentle weight from it would be very soothing. I was concerned with just HOW chilly it might feel, but with a sheet mask as a barrier (like @ElizaPRO mentioned) makes it all the more appealing! May have to put this one back in my cart.., Hope your sleep patterns reset so you can resume full nights’ sleep again soon:)
