@greeneyedgirl107 @GeorginaBT Add me to the list for this bug. This is not a new occurrence for me: it pops up every few months. I’m so used to it randomly happening once in a while, I don’t always report it here. 😂 But yeah, my notifications on BIC and via email are glitchy again in all the ways others have recently reported. I can’t speak for the app experience because I don’t use the app. But for the website experience, this happens via iPad using Chrome and Safari, and iPhone using Chrome (haven’t checked in mobile Safari but I expect the same results).

@Eileem09 If dryness is your only skin issue, then you can do a fairly simple routine: Night: Cleanser - what do you currently use to wash your face? If it leaves your skin feeling tight, stripped, or “squeaky clean,” then you probably need to switch to a more hydrating cleanser. CeraVe, Cetaphil, Vanicream, and La Roche-Posay make good inexpensive cleansers for dry skin. If you need to remove makeup first, try a cleansing balm, cleansing oil, or micellar water, then follow with your cleanser. Which one’s “best” depends on your personal preference. My personal faves are The Inkey List Oat Cleansing Balm, COSRX Low pH Niacinamide Micellar Water, Paula’s Choice Gentle Touch Makeup Remover (I use the most often for stubborn eye makeup), and Bioderma Sensibio H2O Micellar Water. Hydrating serum, spray, or toner/essence - for my mostly-dry combo skin, I use The Ordinary Multi-Peptide + HA Serum or The Ordinary Multi-Peptide + Copper Peptides 1% Serum (the main difference between them is just a copper peptide). Both those serums are loaded with many humectants and other hydrating ingredients. You won’t need to use a whole dropper of serum; I usually use about half a dropper on my face and neck. Another option is a hydrating spray; my faves are Timeless HA Matrixyl 3000 w/Cucumber Spray and COSRX Centella Water Alcohol Free Toner. I used to use Youth To The People Adaptogen Soothe + Hydrate Activated Mist with Peptides 4 oz/ 118 mL in the winter (when my skin needs the most hydration/moisturization help) with good results. Moisturizer - first, make sure your skin’s damp, but not dripping wet (you can use a hydrating mist or just tap/spray a little water on your face), to help seal in hydration instead of dryness. Then immediately apply a moisturizer. My usual nighttime moisturizer is CeraVe Moisturizing Lotion. If my skin needs extra help, I use either CeraVe Moisturizing Cream or Vanicream Moisturizing Cream; they both contain petrolatum, the most occlusive (water-loss preventing) skincare ingredient on the market. If you reeeally wanna use something Sephora carries, Paula's Choice Omega+ Complex Moisturizer 1.7 oz/ 50 mL is a good one. Morning: Cleaner (optional) - some folks don’t need to wash their face in the morning. I usually gently wipe my face with a soft wet microfiber cloth (like a Makeup Eraser). If I do need a morning wash, I use something very gentle like e.l.f. Pure Skin Cleanser or CeraVe Hydrating Facial Cleanser (I prefer e.l.f.’s because it doesn’t sting my eyes), or I’ll even just use a micellar water—and whichever product I use, I wash only the parts of my face that need it, which is usually just around my eyes. Hydrating serum/mist/toner/essence - whichever one you use at night is probably fine to repeat in the morning, as long as it doesn’t contain an AHA (alpha hydroxy acid: glycolic acid, lactic acid, mandelic acid); you don’t wanna use an AHA product daily or twice daily, lest your over-exfoliate your skin which’ll lead to all kinds of badness. Moisturizer - you can repeat your PM moisturizer if you want. My daytime moisturizer is usually CeraVe Moisturizing Lotion in warm weather or CeraVe Moisturizing Cream/Vanicream Moisturizing Cream in cold weather. But sometimes I use Vanicream Daily Facial Moisturizer instead. Broad spectrum sunscreen (at least SPF 30) - apply generously to all skin exposed to sunlight (eyelids, ears, behind ears, hairline, nape of neck if exposed, etc.) and reapply every couple hours, all year long, regardless of weather or season. If you’ll be indoors all day and not sitting beside an unshielded window, then you won’t need to reapply until you go outside. If your skin gets wet or you get very sweaty while you’re outdoors, reapply your sunscreen. Heck, a sunscreen that contains at least one good moisturizing ingredient (dimethicone, shea butter, etc.) can double as a moisturizer, so you could even skip step 3 up there depending on how dry your skin is. I do that during summer, but any other time of year I usually need a separate moisturizer under my sunscreen. Which sunscreen’s right for you is highly subjective. Do you already use one? A cult favorite is Supergoop! Unseen Sunscreen Invisible Broad Spectrum SPF 40 PA +++ ; that’s the one I always travel with and use most often at home. If you have a local Trader Joe’s, they make a pretty good dupe for a lot less money: Trader Joe’s Daily Facial Sunscreen SPF 40. I also really like Skin1004 Hyalu-Cica Water-Fit Sun Serum SPF 50, which you can find at most K-beauty retailers.

I had the same thing happen with my hair while using olaplex 6 bonding treatment. For the past 1 1/2 years I have used this product every week on my hair after washing and for the past year and a half every time I wash my hair I would have a handful of hair come out in the shower. Now I do have a thyroid problem and a protein absorption deficiency so I thought that was what was causing it. However, my thyroid levels have been regulated since I was 27 and I’m now 41 and I have increased my protein to make up for my absorption issues so I didn’t understand why I was still losing so much hair when I would wash it. I then wondered what else has change in the last year and a half and the ONLY thing was I started using Olaplex. About 2 months ago I decided to google does olaplex cause hair loss and lo and behold, I was shocked to what I had found out. I immediately stopped using it and within 2 weeks I was only losing a tenth of the hair I was previously losing so I know 💯 percent that it is the olaplex. They need to have this product removed immediately. Thank God I have super thick hair so even losing half of it I can still manage but I couldn’t imagine what it has done to people that already had thin hair.

@CynthieLu It would be great to have Trader Joe’s available in Canada. I remember the Target fiasco, all they sold was junk and the stores were empty most of the time…not exactly like in the US . We don’t even have a Whole Foods in my province…🥺

@tealtherealdeal This lip gloss makes my lips look fuller because of the slight shimmer in it. It does contain ginger, pepper, and menthol extracts, but in very small amounts, as it doesn't burn my lips and I'm really sensitive to those.Gucci Gloss à Lèvres Hydrating Plumping Lip Gloss .
