Either way, we want to welcome you into our beauty-loving family, so don’t be shy- pop in and introduce yourself!  We’re already happy to e-meet you. 🙂

Re: Introduce Yourself: New Member Monday

Welcome to BIC @DaynahDarko ! Skincare can be such a trial and error experience, even with a dermatologist’s help. I’m in my late 40s and spent the last few years overhauling my entire skincare routine. I also have combo skin (mostly dry; my oily zone is just on and around my nose) that’s finicky: some things that work great for other folks cause bad reactions on my face.  

 

The best advice I can offer, aside from getting a derm’s advice, is to patch test EVERYthing before applying it all over your face. I patch test new-to-me skincare products on a small area of my neck, jaw bone, or wrist. Some products get a 2-week test. Others—mostly “apply once or twice a week” items—require a full month. Start keeping track of products that make your skin throw tantrums, and see if you notice any common ingredients among them. This will help you learn which ingredients your skin’s sensitive to, so you can avoid products that contain them in the future.

Welcome to BIC! Skincare is an important part of any beauty routine. I feel like splurging on a good moisturizer is a good investment that will keep your skin soft and healthy. I really like the Drunk Elephant Lala Retro™ Whipped Moisturizer with Ceramides 1.69 oz/ 50 mL. <333

Hello all! I’m amber, I’ve always loved make up but always cheaped out. I have a newfound love of Sephora. I’ve treated myself now and there will be no more drug store make ups found in my make up bag! ❤️

@alk143 Welcome to BIC

Re: RE: Introduce Yourself: New Member Monday

Hi @alk143 discovering Sephora can be quite exciting! I don’t think there is anything wrong with you purchasing drug store brands, if you still like them. A balance is always nice 😊

Re: RE: Introduce Yourself: New Member Monday

Welcome, @alk143! It's nice to splurge on some nice makeup and skincare, though I have to admit I do still love good drugstore products and keep a few in my arsenal, haha!

Re: RE: Introduce Yourself: New Member Monday

Welcome aboard @alk143 ! If there’s a drugstore or cheap brand’s makeup item you love, keep using it. 🙂 Price alone doesn’t indicate quality. 2 of my favorite skincare products are made by e.l.f., and ColourPop makes some of my favorite bullet lipsticks. On the flip side, every product I’ve tried by La Mer and Tatcha, and almost all Drunk Elephant products, beat my skin up. And I find some high priced makeup isn’t worth the money. It all depends on what works best for the way you use makeup, of course.

Re: Introduce Yourself: New Member Monday

Hi! My name is Emily, and I'm new to BIC. I'm also a skincare lover, though it's kind of embarrassing because I'm so into skincare but my skin isn't even that good haha.  I started using Retin-A about a month ago, so my skin has been really sensitive lately and I've had to be very careful in selecting what other products go on my face.  If anyone has any tips on surviving the adjustment phase for tretinoin I would love to hear any stories or tips 🙂 

 

And responding to the original question of the thread: If I could splurge... I guess I've already splurged this holiday season, whoops! I bought the 0.5 oz La Mer soft cream because it makes me face so soft and happy, and I was having some real skin sadness because of the aforementioned Retin-A.  No regrets, but I probably won't be repurchasing from that line for a while... I guess my ultimate splurge would be just to buy everything La Mer - the tonic, treatment lotion, regenerating/revitalizing serums, and full-sized soft cream.

Hi I'm Anna! I'm new! I love skincare! If I could splurge on skincare I'd have to go with...all brands! A few of my favorites are Peter Thomas Roth, Josie Maran, Skinfix, Perricone MD, Mario Badescu Vitamin C serum and tons more. I want to try Tatcha skincare line. If anyone loves Tatcha please help me find one of your favorite products. I do use The Silk Canvas for my eyeshadow. I'm 46 years old. It works wonders! Thank you for letting me join your group!
