I would use it every day if my skin could take it and I had the time to spare @ather 😂 I am very careful and don’t apply too much pressure. I can’t say that I notice a huge difference as I only use it sparingly, but it is something I will continue to use because it is just a treat and feels good. I really should pay more attention to how my serums/moisturizer absorb after use but I doubt that will happen!

This reply is just for anyone curious or going through the same journey, I'd love advice or thoughts. I use NARS Pure Radiant Tinted Moisturizer in the color Auckland (medium-deep neutral tone) so my pores don't get clogged like thicker foundations; I use that after the supergoop! unseen primer. My skin is combination, to little hydration can lead to my skin peeling but I am also oil/sweat prone If I don't exercise or wear full coverage foundation. As I have aged acne is minimized but intensifies towards menstruation.

Hi @avocadocare ! The INKEY List Salicylic Acid Cleanser 5 oz/ 150 mL is a water-based foaming cleanser. If you're using it for acne control: after massaging it on your face, let it sit for a minute or 2 so the salicylic acid can do its job, and then rinse it off. Double cleansing is often recommended for folks who wear makeup (especially foundation or tinted moisturizer) or use mineral sunscreens. The first step of a double-cleanse is meant to remove makeup and sunscreen. The second step is a follow-up skin cleanser that should also remove anything the first cleanser missed. Whenever I wear a mineral sunscreen—especially a tinted sunscreen—or tinted moisturizer, I double-cleanse to break up that sunscreen. Whether or not your skin needs a double-cleanse depends partly on what you use on your face throughout the day. The first step cleanser can be an oil cleanser, micellar water, cleansing balm, gentle cream cleanser, etc. I prefer The INKEY List Oat Cleansing Balm 5 oz/ 150 mL , but there are plenty of other options out there. My second step cleanser is usually CeraVe Hydrating Cleanser Bar (I use it on my face and body at night).

Hi @hildalys ! Are you looking for setting powders or sunscreens? Or both? Sunscreen: Is there a particular type of finish (matte, naturally radiant/skin-like, glowy, super dewy/glass skin) you prefer? Any non-tinted chemical sunscreen should be 100% invisible on all skin tones. A popular and reliable option is Supergoop! Unseen Sunscreen SPF 40 PA+++ 1.7 oz/ 50 mL which I frequently use, especially around my sensitive eyes. The texture's quite siliconey, but that doesn't bother my mostly-dry combo skin. The finish is natural and skin-like, with a moderate blurring effect on the visible pores in my oily zone. If you want a dewy/glowy finish, I've been loving the OMI Verdio UV Moisture Essence SPF 50: it comes out of the tube white but quickly and easily blends out clear. You can find this Japanese sunscreen at places like YesStyle, Stylevana, and maybe Amazon. As for mineral sunscreens, I'm still looking for a new favorite. (My old faves were discontinued.) A tinted mineral sunscreen I like a lot is Saie Sunvisor Moisturizing Sunscreen SPF 35 . I didn't think the universal tint would work on me at all (I'm in the "medium-deep to deep" shade range of most brands), but it does, even on my large areas of hyperpigmentation. If your local Sephora has it in stock and has a tester available, see if the tint works for you. On me, it leaves a radiant and slightly glowy finish. CoTZ makes several mineral sunscreens you can find at Ulta (if you're in the US). I like their sensitive skin sunscreen, though it's a bit greasy feeling for me. I use it mostly on my neck (including the back of my neck if it's exposed), chest, and any exposed skin on my calves, ankles, and feet. Dermstore makes a good tinted mineral sunscreen called Dermstore Collection Daily Mineral Sunscreen. This is another "universal" tint that works for me, and it's very easy to blend out. It leaves more of a matte finish. If you want an extra dewy "glass skin" finish: CanMake Mermaid Skin Gel UV (the clear version) is a hybrid chemical + mineral sunscreen that comes out of the tube white but blends out 100% invisible. This is another Japanese brand available at Stylevana, YesStyle, and Amazon. Probably elsewhere, too. I don't use it often because I don't always want to look so shiny, but if that's the look you want, this sunscreen will do it.

SpoilerFenty Foundation and A Good Primer?Fenty Foundation and A Good Primer?Hi there! So I just bought the Fenty Foundation Soft Matte Pro Filt’r! I have very oily, acne and blackhead prone skin, it’s also sensitive with just a few dry spots around my lips and tip of my nose. I’m trying to figure what primers will grip well, but still have matte properties. I have a hard time with the makeup sliding off because of having to wear glasses 24/7 and wearing my mask. I’ve tried the Cover FX matte and acne treatment primer and didn’t like it. I really like the Milk Hydrogrip primer, but it’s got too much hydration for me. Anything helps y’all!!! Thank you!!! 💖

Hi @Sariahpagan ! Since no one on BIC is a dermatologist, your best bet is to see a derm or your primary care doctor about those bumps. Only a doctor can examine your skin, diagnose you, and prescribe treatment(s). The best any of us here can do is guess, but we could be very wrong and you shouldn't just take our word for it. Since you mentioned tiny itchy bumps, my guess is either an allergic reaction to something (could be one of your skincare products, or some other substance that transferred from your hand to your face if you touched your face) or a yeast overgrowth (pityrosporum folliculitis, aka "fungal acne" which is a misnomer since it's not acne at all). I can't recommend much for an allergic reaction besides an antihistamine pill and anti-itch products like the aloe you're already using. Fungal acne can be treated with a few different things, like Nizoral shampoo which contains the anti-fungal ingredient ketoconazole. But you really should have a doc look at your skin for a true diagnosis and treatment recommendations. Sorry you're going through this! I hope you find some relief soon.
