It clears out my acne. 😍 saves money ❤️

Re: Beauty Throwback Challenge: Share SKINCARE trends from the past decade!

I remember really learning about my skin type (dry, flaky) and getting into exfoliation and layering moisturizing products. On the menu was a Clairsonic, #kate Somerville exfoliate, and REN Clean Skincare Glycol Lactic Radiance Renewal Mask 1.7 oz/ 50 mL . I think I overdid it with the clairsonic most nights. I liked layering my moisturizer with Laura Mercier hydrating primer and tinted moisturizer. My face did not dry down. It was literally sticky, but I thought it was great until I tried out Koh Gen Do Aqua Foundation 213 and lotions/moisturizers. I still love that stuff and wish Sephora still carried all of it!

I remember being obsessed with the Clean & Clear facial cleansers, especially the ones with "bursting beads". I also used to love using Oxypads. I loved how cool my face felt after!

Re: Beauty Throwback Challenge: Share SKINCARE trends from the past decade!

@AJBlondie Oh my goodness.  I remember using Oxypads! I absolutely loved them 😂😂😂😂😂

Re: Beauty Throwback Challenge: Share SKINCARE trends from the past decade!

Oh my goodness, I remember the morning burst cleanser!  
I remember when GLAMGLOW YOUTHMUD® Glow Stimulating & Exfoliating Treatment Mask 1.7 oz/ 50g  took over the market.  It was everywhere and one of the first skincare products I remember seeing Youtubers push.  I tried it so many times and always wondered why it didn't work for my poor, dry skin.  

Re: Beauty Throwback Challenge: Share SKINCARE trends from the past decade!

@TeamBIC I think it's interesting to look back on how skincare ingredients are marketed over the years.  Like how commercials explained micellar water.  And now how Eva Longoria is pronouncing hyaluronic acid for us.

 

I'm also curious to hear what products BICers remember being highly touted on BIC over the years.  For some reason belif is all that's coming to mind right now.  I remember reading a lot of posts about it.

Re: Beauty Throwback Challenge: Share SKINCARE trends from the past decade!

@TeamBIC As a teenager I remember using Biore blackhead strips on my nose all the time.  They were always advertising it in magazines and on tv

Re: Beauty Throwback Challenge: Share SKINCARE trends from the past decade!

@SportyGirly125 Me too!   I loved them.

I remember myself and all my friends being obsessed with those facial cleansers that had the bursting beads in them, my favorite was the clean and clear citrus one! 

Re: Beauty Throwback Challenge: Share COMPLEXION trends from the past decade!

Back in the days my only complexion product was Stila colour correcting CC cream. Luckily their medium shade matched me perfectly and I wasn’t using any concealer but then I didn’t have much to conceal at that time. That was a sad time when it discontinued .

Re: Beauty Throwback Challenge: Share COMPLEXION trends from the past decade!

@fatimamummy I still use my Stila CC cream when I go out or have a pic to take.  It's lasted me SO long b/c I rarely wear foundation!

 

I bought one initially for my sister, but like it so much I bought one for myself.  Years ago!

Re: Beauty Throwback Challenge: Share COMPLEXION trends from the past decade!

I've tried foundations but since I am chronically dehydrated  nothing works for me. I sometimes find a bb cream that works. I loved Boscias old BB cream before they went and discontinued that and brought in some tinted kind. I don't touch bronzer, unless I use it as an eyeshadow. I rarely use blush, I look like a clown. But oh boy do I love me some highlighter.

Re: Beauty Throwback Challenge: Share COMPLEXION trends from the past decade!

Back in middle/high school it was always the super cheap silicone drug store foundations. You know the ones, that came with that pitiful sponge and would dry out almost immediately 😂 it always looked so orange no matter what your skin tone was. Not to mention this was a time when the concept of blending your foundation into your neck was unheard of, so we were all walking around looking like we were wearing an orange-tinted face mask. 
personal favorite: after gym class one day in ninth grade I saw a girl pump some cheap drug store liquid foundation into her hands and rub it aggressively onto her face like a sunscreen 🤣 it was a simpler time y’all

Re: Beauty Throwback Challenge: Share COMPLEXION trends from the past decade!

In my middle school days primer and setting spray weren’t overly talked about. Also me actually knowing my correct shade? Not a thing lol. I walked around two shades too light and with the wrong undertones. I’m very glad that as my love for makeup progressed the beauty trends changed as well. As I got older things like primer, setting spray, powders. Etc. Became much more of a staple. And I am so grateful for that. Makeup is a beautiful thing isn’t it? ❤️

Re: Beauty Throwback Challenge: Share COMPLEXION trends from the past decade!

It's been a long journey in finding the right foundation for me.  I always had a hard time finding foundation that looks good on my oily skin without it looking cakey, too matte, or oxidizes.

Right now, I'm loving Estée Lauder Double Wear Stay-in-Place Foundation 1W0 Warm Porcelain.

I'm so disappointed about NARS All Day Luminous Weightless Foundation Gobi changing their formulation since that was my all time favorite.

 

I love KVD Vegan Beauty Shade + Light Face Contour Refillable Palette and Too Faced Chocolate Soleil Matte Bronzer Milk Chocolate.

I've been using BECCA Cosmetics Shimmering Skin Perfector® Pressed Highlighter Champagne Pop but I'm searching for a new one since it cracks easily.  I would love a brighter highlighter as well.

Re: Beauty Throwback Challenge: Share BROW trends from the past decade!

Re: Beauty Throwback Challenge: Share BROW trends from the past decade!

Before Instagram and filters. I was rocking a natural complexion with no highlighter and a slight contour.
