All about Luxury skincare! Come in and chat about your skincare, treatments, tools and products

Hello beauty talk members, I see so many color threads here. I love to chat about luxury skincare products and procedures. I am addicted to trying new things and am always on the lookout for something new in skincare. 

 

Have a favorite luxury brand or product? 

Have a fav skin tool or treatment? Please share.

Curious about botox? Spa treatments and peels? let's share our experiences here .

 

We can also post good GWP's, and specials. Smiley Happy

Re: All about Luxury skincare! Come in and chat about your skincare, treatments, tools and products

So I'm almost through my first set of Odacite samples, here are my thoughts so far:

 

Pe+C - does nothing special for my skin, but I already knew that!

 

Bl+C - it didn't really help reduce my pimples, but I'm not sure if it's because they were stubborn hormonal ones. I guess my pimple didn't get worse? I think this serum also makes my eyes water!

 

Gr+G - haven't used it as much as the others, but I would say it hasn't done anything for me. I like the idea of the antiseptic properties, though.

 

Jo+L - Used up the quickest since I was mixing this with the Oleosomes moisturizer 2x/day. I really want to love this, it might not have cleared the clogged pores that have turned into trapped whiteheads and blackheads but seemed to help clear the texture away from the inside of my inner left cheek. Maybe I just need more time with this?

 

I wish the oily/acne prone ones worked better for me. Maybe my skin just isn't in rough enough shape to see drastic results?

 

I also just received samples of Pa+G, Ac+R, CaR, Bl+J and Po+R in the mail yesterday, and used Pa+G, Ac+R and CaR with the oleosomes moisturizer. My skin looked significantly brighter a few minutes after applying! ac+R and CaR looked so potent, their colours are just way different than the other serums I've sampled.

Re: All about Luxury skincare! Come in and chat about your skincare, treatments, tools and products

AcR, CaR and PaG are some of the more potent ones in the line, I think.

 

If you were to try CaR by itself, I think it will be the one that has to do with the brightness.  

 

I think JoL was the one that did more for my hormonal acne than BlC, but I don't dilute it at all, I apply it directly to the spots.  I understand the theory they are purporting with the moisturizer, but I feel like if skin is able to handle it at high concentration without issue, we will probably see more benefit that way. 

Re: All about Luxury skincare! Come in and chat about your skincare, treatments, tools and products

I actually have resorted to applying Jo+L directly over the texture the last couple of days because I don't feel like my forehead and jawline needs decongesting. That is when I saw slight improvement in my inner check texture/congestion! I only have maybe 2-3 drops of Jo+L left in my sample, I might have to order a bottle and keep using to see if my skin actually benefits from it.

 

I also apply Bl+C directly to pimples and if I have any left on my palm I will mix in with moisturizer. Gr+G, Pe+C I mix in.

 

Yesterday I applied Pa+G directly to my sunspots and acne scars and maybe it's in my mind but I feel like the acne scars have faded. I know you've mentioned in a past post that you're a fan of Pa+G! Ac+R and CaR I mixed in with moisturizer. I think I will do the same for Po+R, Bl+J whenever I test them.

 

Tonight I will use CaR with Pa+G and see if it's better than Ac+R with Pa+G Smiley Very Happy

 

The ones I really want to work are Jo+L, CaR/AcR and Pa+G. I think my skin will benefit from what they target the most. IMO Jo+L targets the root cause of acne out of the acne serums--if pores don't get clogged, then there should be minimal breakouts. 

 

Po+R and Bl+J I just kind of added into my order because I wanted to order 6/6 samples allowed from Fresh Faced and they seemed interesting. Should have ordered another vial of Jo+L instead Smiley Sad

Re: All about Luxury skincare! Come in and chat about your skincare, treatments, tools and products

Hi everyone. I think this would be  the best place to ask your input on may Lindstrom skincare line..... I have oily combo skin with breakouts under control.my skin is a tad oilier in summer. I am thinking to try the honey mud, jasmin garden and problem solver after reading blogs etc.  Anyone tried it? What you think?

I am willing to splurge and try it rather than getting samples when I don't have a counter near me.

Any input will help thank you Smiley Happy

Re: All about Luxury skincare! Come in and chat about your skincare, treatments, tools and products

I have the same kind of skin and The Clean Dirt and The Problem Solver are a must!  The Honey Mud is nice too. I would skip The Jasmine Garden facial spray - it really didn't do anything for my skin.   Order directly from her site and you can request samples of anything - they sent me generous sized samples of everything in her line when I ordered from them the first time.

Re: All about Luxury skincare! Come in and chat about your skincare, treatments, tools and products

@dioradict I have tried the entire line and use some of it regularly.

 

i wouldn't recommend honey mud if you're combo oily as its better for dry skin. I find a good cleanser for oily skin is clean dirt.

 

Problem solver is great for acne.  Now that my skin is under control I only use 1-2x a month.

 

i just started using my jasmine garden from the cult beauty box.  It smells nice but I don't think it's better than any other face mist.

Re: All about Luxury skincare! Come in and chat about your skincare, treatments, tools and products

@Mochapj Thank you so much for answering. Just one more question - Have u tried Tata Harper regenerating cleanser and purifying cleanser? I'm wondering if clean dirt is comparable to purifying cleanser which I love. I use SR Ceramic slip or Tata Harper cleanser sometimes mix Ceramic slip with purifying one if my skin feels a bit dehydrated.

Re: All about Luxury skincare! Come in and chat about your skincare, treatments, tools and products

@dioradict I don't think I've tried TH but I have tried ceramic slip

 

its sort of the same idea as ceramic slip, being a clay cleanser, but it comes as a powder that you add water to and can make as moussey or scrubby as you prefer, by mixing in your hands.  Because it has small grains in it, I wouldn't recommend using it to take off makeup.  I use it for second cleansing to take off makeup remover balm 

Re: All about Luxury skincare! Come in and chat about your skincare, treatments, tools and products

Thanks @Mochapj. I double cleanse as well and this really helps Smiley Happy I ordered the Problem solver.

Re: All about Luxury skincare! Come in and chat about your skincare, treatments, tools and products

@dioradict I started using her products recently and I have  normal/combo skin with the occasional hormone related pimples.

 

I would definitely recommend the problem solver it is amazing!I have been using it 1/2 a week and it made a visible improvement in my skin. 

 

The honey mud is an interesting and versatile product, but if you have oily skin I wouldn't recommend it to you as a cleanser on its own. I do use it as a cleanser occasionally in the morning, but need to use a flannel in the end - it does leave a 'film' on the skin. 

I like it as a mask and it is great when combined with the problem solver.

My preferred use is to use it as a cleanser combined with the clean dirt. The combination reminds me of Tata Harper regenerating cleanser.

The clean dirt alone does remind me of the Tata Harper without that "creamy" base. 

I love the Jasmine Garden and already have a back up - it smells absolutely divine. I reach out to it during the day specially when I am really stressed out. It's my liquid natural xanax lol. My skin (and nerves) love it! All things considered it's a face mist, the best one I've tried, but still a face mist.

 

If you order directly through May you can get really generous samples of her products!

 

Hope this helps!

 

 

Re: All about Luxury skincare! Come in and chat about your skincare, treatments, tools and products

Thank you so much @Mochapj @Cyncyn and @Bstella Smiley Happy

 

I ordered the Problem Solver from Cult beauty along with the mask bowl and got the Jasmin garden free. I will update once I try it Smiley Happy

Re: All about Luxury skincare! Come in and chat about your skincare, treatments, tools and products

@dioraddict. I was playing with the brand again today in Barneys NYC.  I have the full ligne, except for the body .

I think the honey mud would be good for you, it is clarifying and has a clay base and all skin types can use it. Honey is a natural anti bacterial and the mud part will clean. Plus you don't want to strip your skin, but balance it and this cleanser would do that! 

 

 it is very thick like a paste and makes a great masque.

Like the ladies mentioned below, the problem solver is amazing. I used mine the other day. I make mine a little thicker than recommended using less water. It really deep cleans and my skin is very fresh and smooth and clarified after. 

 

The Jasmine mist is not my fav, but it is refreshing and gets rave reviews. 

I think the brand is nice if you also use actives, you can work this into your other product regime.

 

Pm me if you need sa info, mine is very generous with samples and phone consults. Smiley Happy

 

GL! 

 

 

Re: All about Luxury skincare! Come in and chat about your skincare, treatments, tools and products

Thanks @luvgloss13, I ordered the Problem solver. I live in Canada so ordering  from Barneys will get expensive with shipping,duties etc. But if i am visiting the US, probably I will contact her Smiley Happy

Re: All about Luxury skincare! Come in and chat about your skincare, treatments, tools and products

Ugh. I hate my impulse buys! I caved and bought the full sized U.F.O. I didn't see any negative effects from using it, and I already have BHA in my routine, so I figured, why not?

 

@dioraddict thank you for your SA's info from Nordstrom! She was very sweet, but unfortunately they are out of the Odacite serums I wanted (Jo+L and Pa+G) so I didn't go ahead and purchase anything.

 

The UFO has jojoba seed oil in it (although at the end of the list) and black cumin oil... I still have my C booster from Paula's Choice that I need to use up, after that, I will probably buy Pa+G!

Re: All about Luxury skincare! Come in and chat about your skincare, treatments, tools and products

@k617  I heard from A too about Pa+G when I went to get my BI+C. So she ordered my Pa+G and ship to me, and I got the gwp. Probably she will text u tomorow about it, since I was there until store closure Smiley Happy

Re: All about Luxury skincare! Come in and chat about your skincare, treatments, tools and products

Thanks @dioraddict, she did call this afternoon and I went ahead and ordered Jo+L and Pa+G from her. It's coming from Ottawa I think but she will send me the GWP Smiley Very Happy I have been rationing the last few drops of my Jo+L. I do like applying this directly to the areas of my face very prone to congestion, whereas I'm using the UFO all over. Looking forward to trying the Gt+L too!

 

She is super nice and I really appreciate your telling me her info!

Re: All about Luxury skincare! Come in and chat about your skincare, treatments, tools and products

@k617 - Yayyy, my Pa+G shipped too but I cant see the UPS tracking yet. Happy that you got your items too and the GWP Smiley Very Happy

Re: All about Luxury skincare! Come in and chat about your skincare, treatments, tools and products

weee i got the full size UFO oil too. except it wasn't impulse and i really like it! I have combination/acne prone skin so I'm happy that it works.

Re: All about Luxury skincare! Come in and chat about your skincare, treatments, tools and products

Which Nordstrom sell the Odacite in store? 

Where can I get samples?

Can I get the SA info?

Re: All about Luxury skincare! Come in and chat about your skincare, treatments, tools and products

The Nordstrom in Vancouver and Ottawa sell Odacite in Canada. I don't know about the US.

@dioraddict  Ty , this is a great deal! I have a BNIB or I would take advantage of this. Smiley Happy

 

Re: All about Luxury skincare! Come in and chat about your skincare, treatments, tools and products

I hope someone can help! 

 

My mom has been complaining that she's getting old and wrinkly and really wants to buy skincare tools. I really want to surprise her by buying her one! 

 

She's mentioned clarisonic and such, but I know absolutely nothing about skin care tools. Based on some research, I've heard clarisonic is a bit harsh.

 

She has super super sensitive skin, is in her mid 40s, has combo skin, and she's mentioned her skin is sallow.

 

Ive saved up money, so I don't mind spending it on her, but if you're able to share deals you know of/that occur throughout the year, I would really appreciate it! I've only heard of the foreo Luna mini and clarisonic, and have done research on them, but there doesn't seem to be a preference on one or the other. Everyone just loves everything lmao. 

 

I would love if people could give me advice or suggestions on what to buy/do more research on/opinions. Thank you!! 

Re: All about Luxury skincare! Come in and chat about your skincare, treatments, tools and products

@pinyo,  Does she use good skincare already? 

 

I would not do the clarsonic as it is a deep cleansing tool and does nothing for sallow or lines and wrinkles.

 

How about good serums and creams first? or did she say she really wanted a skincare tool?

 

How about a treatment at a medspa? Smiley Happy

Re: All about Luxury skincare! Come in and chat about your skincare, treatments, tools and products

I recommend looking into the nuface or clarisonic opal. I love my opal and got my mom the nuface for Christmas last year. The opal is targeted for the eye area. The nuface is more expensive but works on multiple areas. There is a mini version with just the two large silver balls or the full size version that comes with the two large silver balls but other heads are available that are more targeted. Hope that helps. Good luck on your search!
