New multiplier!Looks like Ulta is ramping up advertising of their answer to the "clean" marketing trend: Conscious Beauty Landing page at ulta dot com/beauty-stars/ (side note...there's a mention of 10x on the top of that page (just on the site, not the app), but I have a sneaking suspicion that perhaps someone at Ulta didn't double check their work after maybe reusing a page template from the 10x event? 5x is mentioned at the bottom of the list, in the terms at the bottom of the page, and in the Offers section where you activate it, so I'm fairly confident this is just a 5x deal...)

Hi @goddess82 ! My favorite is The INKEY List Oat Cleansing Balm 5 oz/ 150 mL. I've also tried and liked Paula's Choice Omega + Complex Cleansing Balm 3.5 oz/ 104 mL a lot, but my skin prefers TIL's oat balm. For reference, I have mostly-dry combo skin that's fairly sensitive and very reactive/inflammation-prone. In addition to gently removing mineral sunscreen and makeup, I can leave TIL's oat balm on my face for 5-10 minutes as a soothing rinse-off mask. On days I've worn eye makeup, I usually use an eye makeup remover first (Paula's Choice Gentle Touch Makeup Remover) with a reusable bamboo round. But I've used the Oat Cleansing Balm to remove eye makeup, and the only thing it struggles with is mascara.

@davidLO123 Sorry you had a bad reaction to Unseen Sunscreen (assuming that's the Supergoop product you're talking about; they make several different sunscreens, including 100% mineral sunscreens). Chemical sunscreens aren't bad—many folks, like me, use them daily with no issues—but some people are skin-sensitive to specific uv blockers and should avoid those ingredients. Hopefully you've found a sunscreen that works for you! About vitamin C: it's not irritating with sun exposure unless your particular skin has a vitamin C sensitivity. SpoilerWhen I say "vitamin C" in this case, I'm really talking about l-ascorbic acid. Farmacy Very Cherry Bright doesn't contain l-ascorbic acid. Instead, it contains several vitamin C derivatives that are more stable than ascorbic acid. But even if it did contain ascorbic acid, it'd still be perfectly fine to use during the day with sunscreen. In fact, skin gets the most antioxidant benefit from vitamin C when it's applied in the morning for pollutant/free radicals protection. L-ascorbic acid is famously sensitive to sunlight and air, so any good serum containing it should be formulated well enough to stabilize it. What can definitely be irritating with sun exposure is citrus juice squeezed onto skin directly from fruit. That's how some folks get "margarita burn" on their hands and mouths. That's a photosensitive reaction caused by a chemical found in lemon and lime juice... I don't recall the chemical's name right now, but it's not l-ascorbic acid or any of its derivatives. Lemon and lime essential oils can also create this bad reaction. When I say "vitamin C" in this case, I'm really talking about l-ascorbic acid.

@TeamBIC I have to say Thank You again for the amazing gifts and for reintroducing me to the SC Cream Lip Stains! I hadn't tried these for years and I remember that I had previously picked out a color that didn't suit me and therefore really never gave the product a fair chance. I don't have another shade like the one you gave us in my collection and I'm not only enjoying a little bit of a change in lip color but I'm actually loving the formula! I've already gotten compliments when I wear it and I find that I keep reaching for it since it has good lasting power without being horribly uncomfortable. Now I'm going to have to buy other colors, LOL. Thanks again so much 😊.Hope the rest of you are enjoying your lipsticks!
