  1. I use Loreal Infallible as a base and Everyday Minerals - Fair Neutral (Intensive) on top.
  2. I'd love: porcelain clear skin electrolysis - no tweezing or shaving ever again!
  3. I was thinking of doing that, too, since I have issues with not being able to check out. *sigh*
  4. Sounds interesting! I always like to hear about home made stuff. Coconut oil causes big breakouts for me, maybe I could substitute a different oil.
  5. I started using Dan's Jojoba oil too. I was a bit scared at first, but my face has been so damn dry lately, that I needed to find something that worked. I had tried Cetaphil Cream and it broke me out. I saw all the rave reviews for the Jojoba oil and decided to give it a go. I've been using it for a couple weeks now and so far so good. It leaves my skin moisturized and I haven't broken out! As for the ingredients, I think it's pure jojoba oil, but if you broke out from the dessert essen
  6. The new site still has problems. I tried to order some stuff today and I had trouble keeping stuff in my cart. Sometimes I had double things in my cart. I got frustrated and gave up. Maybe I'll try again in a couple of weeks to see if it gets better.
  7. I like Boots liquid liner. I like the skinny little brush. Sometimes the brush is to big and it's a pain to put on.
  8. For the regimen to wrote the best, it's best to slowly work your way up to larger doses. BP will cause dryness, flaking and lots of irritation if you use to much too soon. So, you'll have acne and a red face. Not fun! It takes your skin a while to get used to it. If you use to much and your skin gets dry, red and irritated, then it may make everything worse. Your skin should always be moisturized. For me personally, after I got over the inital break out and my skin started to look bette
  9. I think both look good. Like everyone said, it depends on what you're in to. I personally perfer clean shaven because my skin is so sensitve that the slightest brush of stubble on my cheek will leave me with a big red mark.
  10. For our first date, my husband showed up with a dozen red roses and two cat toys. I had two cats then and he bought something for both of them. Later, after we dated a while, he would regularly buy them canned cat food and catnip toys; he even bought my one cat some V8 juice since this weird cat ALWAYS drinks my V8. So he got some V8 for me and my cat! When he asked me to marry him, it was the three year anniversary of our first date. He planned a whole day of 'scavenger' hunting for me; th
  11. I think Cool As Kim Deal has info on jojoba. If you look at her signature there is a link that will give you more info. I *think* she rubs jojoba gently on her face until all the flakes come off. Then I think she leaves it on for a bit like a mask and then I think she washes it off with her regular cleanser and goes through her normal regimen. Hopefully I am remembering this correctly. I read it a while ago. There is more info on the link on her sig. I hope that helps, good luck
  12. Hey, congrats on becoming clean! You should be very proud of yourself! Sorry to hear your skin is a pain in the ass. I'm currently on a modified version of Dan's Regimen myself. Although I have been playing around with different things lately and have been paying the price for my experiments. 3 new zits and 1 cyst! GRRR! I've been trying to eat healthy to see if that will make a difference, so far it hasn't, but I have read that quite a few people have had reactions from oranges. Maybe i
  13. Retinol products are good for wrinkles and sun damaged skin and also acne. Neutrogena Healthy Skin Anti-Wrinkle Cream is a retinol product and has spf 15 in it. I've never tried it. Some people find retinols very harsh and drying, so maybe start slow if you decide to try one. Another retinol product is Green Cream. A lot of people here use it. It comes in stage 3, 6 or 9. 3 being the most sensitive. Again, they recommend starting slow until your face gets used to it. Another option would
  14. You're right, it is frustrating. I am 36 now, I started getting acne when I was about 20. But, there are some people on these boards that started when they were 12 and still have it and they are 30 or 40. Every once in a while I cut back, just to see what would happen. I always think, who knows, maybe my face has changed. I give it a shot and I break out. Even though it is time comsuming, I'm glad I've found a regimen that works for me, well, most of the time anyway. Not to long ago, my
