  1. I can't wait to get some of the new bp, Dan. Congrats on moving testing up to Feb. Please, please keep us posted =D>
  2. it's happening again....every time I've gotten an acne treatment to work, it works for a while, then everything goes to hell! I've been on the regimen since late august, and it's been working great. Then, about 3-4 weeks ago, my acne flared up again, and it's not getting any better. I don't know what to do!!!!!!!!!!!!!! This pisses me off sooooooo much! ](*,) ](*,) ](*,) ](*,) ](*,) ](*,) ](*,) ](*,)
  3. Has anyone tried Bare Minerals makeup? I saw it on an informercial on TV last nite and it looked like good stuff. Anyone tried?
  4. Well, I disagree with the powder over the shadow thing---but i guess different things work for different people. I use the method I described above with the brush, and I really never had a problem with creasing. I would be afraid to use a powder with my cream eyeshadow---the color I use is a shiny, pearly-white color, and I'm pretty sure that applying powder OVER it would discolor it. Anyway, like I said, different things work for different people. Sometimes you just have to experiment a
  5. I agree with Sparty---that is what I meant----foundation----->powder----> shadow (and then follow my instructions for the shadow, if you want) Hope this helps!
  6. another thing I forgot to include-----the consistency of the A&E ointment will be kind of thick, so you'll want to mix enough eye cream with it to make it substantially thinner. You'll want a thinner-consistency mixture to put on your eyes, since your eyes are very sore and irritated, you don't want to pull or tug at the skin around your eyes in any way. Apply it VERY, VERY, gently, avoiding any tugging of the skin, if possible. Again, make sure you thin down the A&E enough so that it
  7. okay, as you've heard from the others---no bp around the eyes. It sounds like you're situation is very painful though, so to get your eyes healed up, this is what I would do: Get some good eye cream and some Vitamin A&E ointment (you can find A&E ointment in the baby section, like next to the baby wipes---it's often used for baby's chapped bottoms). Then at night, mix a small amount of the A&E ointment with some of the eye cream and apply ONLY AROUND THE EYES---NOWHERE ELSE, AS IT
  8. I used proactiv for a LONG time, and I spent a digustingly massive amount of money on it. I wish I could have all that money back---it was such a waste. When I first started using Proactiv, it seemed like it was helping. However, after a couple months, my acne was back full force. I kept calling proactiv and they would try to say I was doing something wrong, even though I was following the instructions exactly. I think I stayed on it for close to 2 years, because I didn't know what to do---
  9. Good Luck, Surmana. I know cutting out the fabric softener/dryer sheets really helped me. And, yeah, you're right---I didn't mention it, but the same goes for towels. Actually, I quit using fabric softener all together. When I was using it, I always noticed it gave my clothes kind of an oily feel after they were dry. Anyway, I hope this helps.
  10. I've tried powder over my foundation before applying cream eyeshadow, as well. Most of the time, it still creases. However, if you use too much, the creasing is, of course, worse. I'm not sure if you're using a pure cream shadow or a pencil/cream, but here's what I do: I usually use a pencil/cream, but I don't apply it directly from the pencil. I have a designated eye shadow brush I use strictly for this step: I take the brush and swipe some shadow off the end of the pencil and apply it
  11. I live in a small city, so is there a place online where I can look into dermablend? Is it really expensive? I noticed that someone referred to it as heavily pigmented---is dermablend intended for people with scarring or people that need very heavy coverage?
  12. I have the same problem with cream eyeshadows, and have tried the foundation thing. I usually just have to touch up at lunch time.
  13. Still curious as to whether anyone has Almay Kinetin foundation and concealer. Thanks
  14. Thanks for all the advice guys! I greatly appreciate it!
  15. This is my first week on the regimen, and my face is very, very flaky---it looks gross. ](*,) And, yes, I'm using moisturizer like I'm supposed to. Any suggestions on how to curb the flakiness? Should I try a different moisturizer? Any makeup tricks? Oh...p.s. this morning I tried a tinted moisturizer thinking that might camoflauge it---didn't work too well
