@eshoe, the mask was from the brand Blossom Jeju ~ I think all of their products are centered around camellia oil. It was one of the brands curated by Glow Recipe before they made their own products. Have you tried applying a sheet mask after your essence and serum step? That's another method.

Nice roundup, @GeorginaBT! I've actually had a few favs this month that have made me really happy as well.I was gifted the Youth To The People Superberry Hydrate + Glow Dream Mask with Vitamin C 2 oz/ 59 mL a couple of years ago and since then it's been my absolute favorite nighttime moisturizer; I think I've repurchased it twice now since that first gratis one and it's a Winter staple for my drier skin :). Also, the tarte Maracuja Juicy Lip Hibiscus has been really helping my dry LIPS this last month!The Laura Mercier caviar sticks weren't ever products that I really liked but surprisingly I've had fun playing with the KVD Vegan Beauty Dazzle Stick Eyeshadow Force Field shadow stick that I hauled last month for a quick (but stunningly sparkly!) all-over eyeshadow look as well as the E.l.f. liquid eyeshadow in "Mermaid Shimmy" which is a fun but approachable seafoam green with a fine silver glitter shot through it.Finally, I'd already raved about the Charlotte Tilbury Airbrush Flawless Setting Spray 3.3 oz / 100 ml after hauling it at Christmastime but I, uh, actually just bought a backup of it when I found it on sale this month. Yeah, it's that good :).Thanks to all of you who have shared YOUR favorites!

Can anybody recommend a good foundation for textured skin????? I had horrific serve acne as a teen, and after laser treatments, I still have these post- pick scars on my cheeks. Can anybody with texture help recommend a good foundation????? I currently use Tom Ford Traceless Stick, but it sinks in my scarring a bit.

Without getting too geeky or chemistry weird, anyone curious please -- let's consider they warn you - "oils breakdown latex," oils breakdown and degrade the efficacy of condoms because they break chemical bonds of polymers - degrading latex compounds that leads to tearing. Latex comes from the sap of a rubber tree, and that sap is poisonous to us and animals. They don't grow around us but the rubber tree's sap is watery, not fatty. This is just simple way to explain that the biochem of organic oil will break silicone (and chemically similar) bonds down, so oil extracts the "good stuff" so it distills into the follicles. Otherwise there isn't optimal penetration of ingredients. I don't worry too much. But I make sure I get what I can. Plus the results don't last as long because they mask the problem, but if you force out the goodness in the products with natural oil, you win. The maker doesn't because oil is expensive. Better to get it from a healthstore or wherever, than to have your conditioner cost $150.00. But you can do the same thing at home. Silicone is a type of polymer (think GLUE), and one of the most prominent ones are in the class elastomer: latex. The wanted latex strong but failed, all because of oil being nonpolar or FATTY. I add oils to my foot masks and I get much better results. I notice the Sephora oils are sold out. Dang. I miss the lab kinda. Well no I don't. I would love to have chemists mix for me. I would love that all day. And just cooking and baking, being a domestic honey. Instead I had to go to a sterile ugly building and now from home they still bleed my head. That is why SPA, pampering, mandatory! LOL. "7 ... rocks"

I love dressing up and applying make up, but have never been out and no one has seen me dressed. I have trouble finding a base that matches.

This may be a little late, but in case no one else has suggested... if you live where you can get to a Sephora store, there staff will color match your skin tone for a base (foundation), and will ask you about your skin and can make recommendations to try, and even give you samples and techniques. All the Sephora stores I’ve been in have made a well as female makeup artists. You could call ahead and ask for an appointment with a male MUA, who may be more equipped to help you with skincare unique to men’s needs. I know this may be intimidating, and depending on where you live may be more difficult to imagine doing, especially if you are concerned you may encounter a family friend of relatives at the mall/in store.if it is an option, but you’re concerned about how the store will handle your request, maybe you could tell them you’re getting headshots done for professional reasons and want to look more youthful and polished. Newscasters and people who are on TV all wear makeup - including men you would never think are doing it! They just don’t tell anyone 😉. Tip: some people like a “blender” - a sponge - to apply foundation, while others like a brush. Both take practice, so be kind to yourself as you learn. You can practice technique on your hands, till you see how they work and what amount looks most natural for you. I like Sephora’s Pro Flawless Airbrush #56, for how easily it spreads and blends. Whether you use a brush or a sponge, you can wet it then squeeze the excess water out in a towel before you apply - this helps it go on smoothly for me. I like Dior Backstage for everyday - it’s the only product that truly perfectly blends into my skin. Always exfoliate and cleanse your face before applying, to make sure there is no dry/flakey skin (shaving will do the trick, too - but make sure you moisturize after, and give it a good 15 min to sink in, and let your face recover, or the foundation may sting)! Finally, less is more: matching is one thing, but putting on too much even if it matches is going to make it look like you’re doing theater... with my Dior, a drop the size of a pencil eraser does half my face! You can always dab on a little more, but if you put on too much you have to start over. Taking it off: but yourself a bottle of good quality micellar water. This will take off any type of makeup without being harsh on your skin. Get soft cotton pads - don’t get cotton balls, they’ll leave fuzzies everywhere if you have any stubble. The cotton pads are in the nail care section of the drugstore, or you can get Shiseido Facial Cotton - the Rolls Royce of cotton pads - here... they’re a little bigger than drugstore ones and may be easier for you to work with if you have larger hands. Finally, make sure to wash your tools with soap and water to keep them clean and stop bacteria from building up, which can cause break outs Good luck, and just know there are thousands of us out here ready to help. All we want is for you be happy and feel good ✌🏼
