What do you like?

 

First I was using Bare Escentuals but I didn't really see a different in my skin after using it for a year. I decided to try Cover Fx Pressed Mineral foundation and the first day I used it my friend said my face looked super good! It doesn't make me oily, it's a little bit more expensive but I think it's worth it. The coverage is buildable and my face is still breathable I use a powder foundation brush to apply it because the sponge dries out my skin.

I have yet to find a mineral foundation I really like. I've been using Pur Minerals' newer version of their pressed mineral foundation with "skin beneficial blahblahblah" ingredients but I'm just "meh" about it.


My acne in a nutshell -- Mild-to-moderate, adult on-set, began late 2009. Regarding my beliefs and previous skincare/lifestyle changes I've tried, I have been conflicted, misinformed, resistant, allergic, and had my hopes up too high only to be let down. Many of my previous posts on here will reflect that. Considering I have never found an explanation as to why I developed acne in my twenties (whereas I've had flawless skin my entire life up until then), I claim to know nothing. I am still fighting the fight and can only offer my humble advice.

hello, so i just started using the regiment and my face is having somewhat of a difficult time absorbing the moisturizer.  as Dan suggest/advice to put 1pump first and let it absorb then the 2nd pump.  after i put my 2nd pump of moisturizer it looks too shiny and when i touch my face it feel sticky and you'll see it on your fingers too.  how do i apply makeup in this type of situation specially during the day.  i don't know what to put on first after the moisturizer or if i even should apply anything.

 

holidays are coming up and i want to be able to hind my dark spots and some blemishes.  how do i apply the folioing in order after the regiments moisturizer?

 

sunscreen

primer

foundation

I use Bare Escentuals, it works for my skin and feels like I have nothing on.

blush

After I apply the moisturizer I let it sit for 5-10 minutes. Then I take either some tissue or a oil blotting sheet and go over my tzone to get any extra greeziness off my face because my skin is so oily. I usually don't use a primer if I want to make my makeup last longer I use the cover girl 3in1 foundation and it last for a pretty long time without a primer. It has sunscreen in it as well but i'm not sure how much. I apply concealer after the foundation then my powder, the blush bronzer etc. If i'm using a powder foundation then I apply the concealer first, then foundation, blush etc.

I love the Studio Gear Wet/Dry Mineral foundation grinwink.gif


Current skin care routine:

 

AM

 

Rainwater Botanical's Soap for Troubled Skin

Spot treat with Acne.org's AHA

Clinique Moisture Surge Intense

Clinique All About Eyes with Baobab oil

 

 

PM 

 

Clinique Take the Day Off Balm with Adzuki Micrograin Facial Scrub (All natural-awesome stuff!)

Acne.org Cleanser for extra cleansing ( I wear a full face of makeup)

Frugally Sustainable Blemish Astringent/or Rainwater Botanical's Toner for Troubled Skin (All natural-very soothing and non-drying)

1 1/2 Pumps of Acne.org's 2.5% BP 

Clinique All About Eyes with Baobab oil

Acne.org's Moisturizer (small amount)

 

When I get home from work, I like to let my face breath, so generally, I will use Clinique Take the Day Off Balm with the Adzuki micrograins, followed by a more gentle regimen. Currently, I am using Bare Minerals Blemish Treatment on any actives...LOVE this stuff!

 

 

I've recently added a mask to my routine.  It's all natural and very cheap.  Bentonite clay and apple cider vinegar mixed with a wee bit of tea tree oil. This is great for blackheads!

 

I am currently 100% clear with this mostly natural regimen.  

 

Makeup: Merle Norman's Purely Mineral Makeup Powder

Merle Norman Aqua Balance liquid foundation

thank you for that info.  i have been doing a little experiment with the regiment & makeup myself.  the other day, i applied only 1 pump of moisturizer however i kept close attention to see if my face will look/get dry.  it has been two days and 1pump works for me (not too oily or greasy).  with the make up, this is what i've noticed after i let my face/skin absorb the moisturizer...

 

1. applied sunscreen, applied garnier bb cream with SPF 20, applied powder = face gets really shiny and oily after a few hours

2. applied smashbox bb cream camera ready with SPF 35, applied bare minerals matte (only dab on my dark spots), applied powder = face lasted a while before it gets oily

 

i will try to apply the sunscreen with the smash box bb cream and see if the sunscreen contribute to my the oil on my face.

hello, I've been on the hunt for a good foundation/bb cream that will help me cover my dark spots, somewhat control my oily skin and also to use later on once my skin clears up.  as of right now GARNIER bb cream made my face way too oily but i am willing to give it another shot since i was not on the regiment at the time.

 

so far, i have use SMASHBOX camera ready bb cream with spf35 twice after i have applied the regiment...

1st try - SMASHBOX (all over my face), bareMinerals matte (only on the cheeks where i have plenty of dark spots), and then top it off with REVLON nearly naked, i would say that my face did not look as oily and it looks nice on my face

2nd try - sunscreen, SMASHBOX (all over my face but applied additional on my cheeks where i have dark spots), and then use REVLON nearly naked, my conclusion is that its setts on my face really nice.  it looks really natural on my face, it feels light and not too heavy.  

 

next i will try ALMAY tlc and let you guys know how i like it.
