@rszaman Since none of us are dermatologists, we can't really diagnose your skin. My first not-a-derm guess (especially since you mentioned itching) is "fungal acne," which isn't truly acne at all. It's a yeast overgrowth. Some ingredients can treat this condition when used once or twice a week and left on the skin for 1-3 minutes before rinsing off: Ketoconazole, found in Nizoral shampoo (use as a facial cleanser) Sulfur in cleansing bar or rinse-off mask form Zinc pyrithione, found in Head & Shoulders shampoo and Vanicream Z-Bar Selenium sulfide, found in Selsun Blue shampoo and Head & Shoulders Again, that's just a guess. You could try one or two of those ingredients/products and see if they help. If they do, great! If not, you may want to see a dermatologist or your primary care doctor (if you can) because you could have a completely different skincare issue.

@Titian06 It is really nice and gives a real warm and comforting vibe. It might be a little rich for the summer but totally fine if you spritz lightly I think! Definitely more versatile than some of the more aggressively spicy smoky scents I've tried.

@WinglessOne I agree and for me, I find the "clean" or "all natural" claim in fragrance is inconsistent and not really meaningful. It potentially muddies the issue. To me, I think it's worth considering where the push for this kind of labeling comes from. We all know that regulations on cosmetics and other consumer goods that contain known carcinogens and such can be weak. This can be the same for sustainable or ethical practices, particularly as pertaining to environmental costs and working conditions. But it is impossible for every individual to vet every single ingredient in the goods they consume. So I understand why it's just easier for people to want a sticker from a third party or to default to "natural=good" thinking. Who has the time to research all these chemicals? Evaluate the information they find? And that's before we ask people to start thinking about stuff like sustainable and ethical business practices. I feel like these auditing organizations, the whole B Corp status comes to mind, are capitalizing on this unmet need consumers have for safety and a desire to support more ethical and sustainable businesses. Maybe these auditors are genuinely trying to fill a gap but I think we both agree that ultimately it's a fake solution that feels good. Instead of leaning on stronger regulatory oversight, policies from within the industry or the state, we are taught to pressure individual companies and brands who feel more accessible to us citizens than the politicians who are supposed to represent our own public interests. This kind of vetting is impossible for an individual, but I imagine it's still difficult for corporations, even one as large as Sephora, to keep up with the new products, the reformulations, companies operating in different countries, it's incredibly complex. So I get this turn to a marketing program like Clean Plus. It's a feasible way to make it look like consumer concerns are being addressed. Of course, there's also a cost to heavy regulation so I'm not suggesting bringing in state regulation will just fix everything. These matters tend to get political, even if it's not a governmental regulatory body. Like every few years, it seems like IFRA comes out with a mega ban on chemicals deemed to be potential allergens which forces every fragrance house to reformulate and like, maybe buy replacement ingredients from huge scent and taste corporations like Firmenich >_<

@Shosh85, ha! It is most definitely worse than the most heady and cloying floral fragrance out there. I was so taken aback by it that I poked my nose into the packet (yes I did!) just to make sure that was what I smelled. Sadly, it was. 😔

@tongxiaowei Bobbi Brown makes a great potted gel eyeliner; Sephora is out of stock of these shades, but maybe they'll be back soon, or you can get them from Bobbi's site or most other retailers- Bobbi Brown Long-Wear Gel Eyeliner in the shades Espresso Ink, Chocolate Shimmer, and Caviar Ink (this one if my favorite brown of hers.) Another option is Bobbi Brown Perfectly Defined Gel Eyeliner Scotch or Chocolate Truffle. These have a little more body to them, but still Bobbi's gel formula, in a pencil form. You can also use her Bobbi Brown Long-wear Cream Eyeshadow Stick in Bark (another favorite) or Violet Plum. These are shadow sticks, but are very creamy but dry down and wear well. You could use an eyeliner brush to apply them and get the same effect as her liner pots.

Aesop is releasing three new fragrances. From Hypebae “Miraceti,” also dubbed “The Boat,” takes inspiration from the serenity of the sea and its “heady, swirling waves, oscillating horizon and peaceful yet isolating emptiness.” The scent features notes of labdanum to channel ocean-worn wood and the smell of a whisky cellar, followed by warm and woody ambrette and styrax. “Karst” (aka “The Shore”) boasts a fresher aroma with mineral notes that aim to replicate the feeling of water. The formula is packed with spices such as cumin and sandalwood to round out a salty and metallic scent. Finally, “Erémia,” or “The Wasteland,” comes with notes of galbanum, iris and yuzu for a bright, citrusy olfactory experience. The overall fragrance takes inspiration from wet moss and wildflowers. Arriving in 50mL containers priced at $1,400 HKD (approximately $180 USD) each, the three “Othertopias” perfumes will arrive in Hong Kong at Aesop’s stores and online on July 5. The first aquatic scents seem like a real departure from Aesop's regular fair. By this I don't just mean their earlier perfumes but all their products. So this should be interesting. Eremia sounds amazing and I really like their room scent with galbanum and jasmine, Olous. Karst sounds like Hermes' Epice Marine to me.
