Hello , I know this post is a couple years old but I came across it when I googled “ my face is gross “ out of frustration and this popped up. Everything you wrote registered with me so much . It’s so crazy that coconut oil is so widely promoted but not good on your skin ( I learned the hard way) . I have acne along my jaw line and somewhat on my right cheek ( always my right cheek) I have spent so much money on products that work at first but always end up breaking me out. Your post was so helpful and informative I don’t normally followblogs but I’f you had one I would definitely be a follower. Could you please tell me the products you use ? My face isn’t oily I would say normal to dry . My t Zone can get a little oily but it’s not too bad that is actually the clearest area of my face. I live in San francisco so whether is pretty cool most of the time. I need help with my skinthank you for your time. Oh I’m also allergic to salycilic 🙈
5 foils in 5 days challenge!Re: 5 foils in 5 days challenge!
@l8totheparty Okay, I just saw this challenge... after I already used up and threw away my foils 😅 So, I’ll tag the products below. I have been making a concerted effort to use my shampoo, conditioner, and hair mask samples lately, not only to use up aging samples, but to find better products. Here’s what I tried: AMIKA - Bust Your Brass Cool Blonde Shampoo AMIKA - Bust Your Brass Cool Blonde ConditionerUmm, I’m a brunette 😂 I used this by accident. Regardless, it made my hair soft and shiny. I can’t speak to the “brass-busting” properties, since I’m not the target customer. I do want to mention, however, that both products are a thick, bright, royal blue and made a bit of a mess in the shower. No staining, but I had to rinse off the walls where some product splattered. AMIKA - Soulfood Nourishing MaskI have shoulder-length hair and this small sample was more than enough, so a little goes a very long way! Each application left my hair soft, shiny, and bouncy after only a few minutes. I would repurchase this, except I don’t like the fragrance. It’s like Moroccanoil Treatment, which I don’t care for. However, if you do like Moroccanoil’s fragrance, you’ll love this. DEVACURL - Melt into Moisture Matcha Butter Conditioning MaskThis used to be one of my all-time favourites. I’m not sure if my hair has changed, or the formula, or both, but this time around it didn’t seem to do much for me. Once I rinsed my hair, it didn’t feel much better than if I had just rinsed out regular conditioner. I’d recommend this for fine, straight hair, because it definitely won’t weigh it down. DRYBAR - On The Rocks Clarifying Charcoal Shampoo DRYBAR - On The Rocks Lightweight ConditionerWinner winner, chicken dinner!!!!! I had this foil in my collection for a year and boy do I wish I had tried it sooner. I swim every day in heavily chlorinated water and never has a shampoo washed the chlorine out so efficiently, without stripping my scalp. Plus, the conditioner left my hair so soft and manageable that I didn’t even need to put in a leave-in product. I tried it a second and third time (I had a few samples) and was blown away each day. I immediately purchased full-sizes of both and this is now my holy grail, daily shampoo and conditioner 🏆 😍 VERB - Sea Shampoo VERB - Sea ConditionerThis sample was okay. Not bad, not great. Honestly, I think you could get similar results from a $5.00 drugstore brand. I wouldn’t repurchase it.

Best facial oil for acne-prone skinRe: Best facial oil for acne-prone skin
@emiskin Between Jojoba and Rose hip, I think Jojoba is better because it better mimics your skin natural oils. I think Caroline Hirons discussed that in one of her TV segments on a British tv show. Squalane is also a solid choice. Another good choice for a treatment oil, if you have active angry acne, is the SUNDAY RILEY - U.F.O. Ultra-Clarifying Face Oil it is a blend of many oils that can help without drying the skin. I only apply that if I am having breakouts.

@SportyGirly125 Thank you so much for sharing your post with me. It looks great and I'll look into it more. I have asked my doctor and she provided the two you did as well, but also suggested for me to reach out and ask what products other people used. You know, instead of having to look through all the products specifically for these two chemicals. Also, I have started to take prenatals. Thank you!

What do you recommend?Re: What do you recommend?
@KehDee ❤️ My daughter has systemic? acne and she finds IT Cosmetics cream doesn’t break her out. She has used Fresh Rose Oil and likes it. She stays away from Soy and coconut which cause flare ups for her. She also uses the pumpkin mask. She has sensitive skin. These are the rotating faves in her skincare lol. I had a list of what brands and products she’s been using successfully. Hopefully some of them have mini gift sets to test out a variety of products.

Hi! You may already know this but you probably want to avoid retinols and even gentle exfoliating acids like glycolic if you’re going to be out in the sun. Someone else mentioned oil, and another great one is First Aid Beauty Ultra Repair Dry Oil. It absorbs quickly and has oat in it too which is super soothing! Also rose spray is a great choice during the day as it will he’ll keep you refreshed and sooth your skin - just be sure you’re reapplying sunscreen occasionally as well! Lastly, a moisturizing serum is great at night - I like Kiehls Midnight Recovery! Enjoy your vacation!

I try not to over do. The rest of them, I use all the time, usually blended together. A drop from each in my hand, mixed together, covers me from forehead to décolleté. I’ve found these are not irritating, nor scented (except for the smells that are natural to that plant).

I've been having a similar problem this summer (though my skin isn't overly dry). It's especially difficult on my forehead because I have bangs. I've been applying my morning serum (Drunk Elephant) or SPF moisturizer and dusting LIGHTLY with powder, applying foundation and then another light dusting mostly on my forehead. My skin looks a bit powdered initially so I finish with Urban Decay setting spray. By the time I'm leaving the house 45 minutes later my makeup has settled in a bit. Throughout the day I rarely use powder, I try to blot off excess sweat with a tissue when I touch up my makeup and then use oil absorbing blotting papers to control any shine. They don't remove my makeup and it has been lasting throughout the day pretty well. If it's a really sweaty day I might put a very very thin layer of translucent powder near my hairline and across my forehead but that's pretty much it. Good luck!

Hey! So I’ve always thought to myself I was like the only person in the world who had this problem but I have bacne (acne on my back).

Hey! Does anyone have a good dupe for the olehenriksen banana bright eye cream/serum/or any of the banana bright line really? I love the results but the orange creamsicle patchouli yuck fragrance in there gives me such a bad headache and is a real day ruiner. I have stuck it out bc it has really helped to brighten my skin tone and under eyes but I definitely won't be repurchasing because of the fragrance. Any recommendations?

@mahikasaxena! With dry sensitive skin, I have to be careful with over exfoliating my skin. If you feel it is too much, maybe use each product every other night. It might be too much using two products with AHAs in one routine, especially since you use it in the AM. Good luck⭐️
