  1. Yes, I was on Orth Tri-Cyclen for about 3 years. My skin was great! I saw a huge improvement after about a year. Unfortunately I got a blood clot in my leg and had to get off of Ortho. Anyways, to make a long story short my skin went back to having break outs again. It's been two years since the blood clot and my skin has mellowed out. I'm 24 and my hormones have calmed quite a bit. My acne was really hormonal I realized. I use azeleic acid now and have good results with that. But a wor
  2. Anyone tried the Continuous Cover concealer from Clinique? It comes in a compact and offers "maximum" coverage and SPF 20. I have a couple of red spot scars I'm trying to cover and was thinking about trying it...anyone tried it and can offer an opinion?
  3. I like glee from Bare Escentuals. I didn't like BE's mineral foundations and sent them back, but I did get to keep the glee and like it pretty well.
  4. Go to Wal-Mart (or any other mass merchandise store) and look in the cosmetics aisle for a pack of replacement applicators. They have all kinds and they are usually very cheap. I wouldn't buy them directly from MAC or any other line...too expensive, unless they are a unique kind you can't find anywhere else...
  5. Email aromaleigh and ask them. I'm sure they could advise you as to what to do...
  6. I have tried Aromaleigh, but I think you should email them first and let them advise you on the color you should choose. Too bad you can't order samples first. That's the best way and the easiest way to figure out what color or colors work best for you. Good luck!
  7. Yes, you do have to have like a $10 min. order. I bought the lip balm kit since I had been wanting to try it. I haven't put it together yet though. Smells good. The other week they did have a sale, so be on the lookout for that as well. I bought the baggies. Cheaper and you do get a pretty good bit. I bought the Pure Cover baggie and it's still lasting me! I just put a little bit on the BE concealer brush and it does great. I also mix the PC with the SkinLights powder palette that the
  8. I took BCP for about 3 years. I took Ortho Tri Cyclen. My skin completely cleared in about a year of being on Ortho Tri Cyclen. Then after 3 years I had to stop taking them--I developed a blood clot in my leg. Birth control pills can contribute to blood clots. I spent 5 days in the hospital on an IV of Heparin (blood thinner). It still shocks me that this happened to me because I was in good health. I had had a major lifestyle change--I had gone from a job where I was walking A LOT to a j
  9. I know you're trying to stop wearing make-up, but you all may want to try mineral make up. It's light, covers well, offers SPF and it's good to your skin. Very natural. Take a look at aromaleigh.com. I just ordered some samples and have been very pleased. But, I understand if you're swearing off the whole make-up thing for awhile. Just a thought.
  10. Yes, I first tried Bare Escentuals and did not like it. Some people do though. I just bought two samples of the Pure Powder and the Pure Cover from aromaleigh.com. It is great. The samples were reasonably priced and they are still lasting me...I've been mixing them with the new Skin Lights powder/highlighter/bronzer and that is working really well for me. I would recommend that you try Aromaleigh. Get a couple of the samples and read all the tons of info on Kristin (the owner's) site. It
  11. Anyone ever tried the Kiss My Face line of products? Did you like them? Thanks!
  12. I don't have a bottle of Cetaphil to compare the ingredients to, but I imagine they are about the same. Here they are: Water, Glycerin, Cetearyl Alcohol, Ceteareth-20, Isopropyl Palmitate, Dimethicone, Macaddamia Ternifolia Oil, Tocopheryl Acetate, Stearoxytrimethylsane, Stearyl Alcohol, Panthenol, Fernosol, Benzyl Alcohol, Phenoxyethanol, Hydrogenated Polyisobutene, Titanium Dioxide, Acrylates/C10-30 Alkyl Acrylate Crosspolymer, Sodium Hydroxide. Hope this helps. Also, I've noticed that
  13. Hey, I was looking for a good moisturing lotion as I am using azeleic (sp?) cream and it can be a bit drying, although not as bad as some other topicals I've tried. Anyways, I wanted to try Cetaphil's moisturing lotion, but decided to try a store brand of the Cetaphil. Well, I have been very happy and it only cost $2! If you live in the South in the US you may have a chain of stores in your area called Dollar General. Well that is the place I bought this. You get a 16 oz. bottle I think f
  14. I think Cover Girl still makes CG Smoothers tinted moisturizer. I used it when I was taking Ortho Tri-Cyclen and had pretty good skin, I just wanted something sheer. This would be something inexpensive to try.
  15. Origins is only found at department stores. Some not all. I'm not familiar with your area, so I can't say which ones. If Macy's or one of Federated's Dept. stores is in your area, you may try there. Or you can go to their website at origins.com. That may be easiest for you. The concealer I just bought is Clinique's quick concealer. It's ok. I liked the coverage of the City concealer better, but like I said earlier it was too orangey for my skin.
