  1. Hey Everyone! Just wondering if anyone has tried the new line at Shoppers Drugmart called Etival? Looking for some reviews! Thanks!
  2. I don't have body acne but I do use this body wash and LOVE it! Even my boyfriend comments on how soft it makes his skin feel after using it!
  3. I use milk of magnesia as a spot treatment and also a mask. I have been using it for a couple months now and love it! I used philosophy clear a day primer and broke out hard core this weekend like 5 big spots. I have applied milk of magnesia twice once last night as a mask and once this morning as a spot treatment before heading off to work and already I see a HUGE improvement. I haven't had a breakout in months but was happy to see that MOM has done the job again and saved the day. I expec
  4. I'm not 100% sure what tanning beds are like for active acne but for red past acne spots they are not good! Tanning beds seem to make the red spots stand out more :S
  5. The only thing I would say negative about Clinique is I can not find a foundation that matches my skin colour. All too orange but other then that I have never had a problem with Clinique products!
  6. Monistat is something I would never think of!!! I'm gonna give it a try! Thank so much! And yes I have been "clear" for like 3 months ... but I still have a lot of red marks and ever since I have been clear my skin has been super oily! It sucks!
  7. I'm not sure what I'm doing wrong ... but everytime I put on makeup it seems like its off in a couple hours. If I blow my nose I see the makeup not on my face! If i put on my glasses I see my makeup on my glasses. Does anyone have any suggestions to what I can do to keep the makeup on my face rather then my clothing, glasses ect?
  8. Are you talking about a homemade yogurt mask? And if you are what type of yogurt do you use?
  9. Does anyone have any tips for getting curling iron curls to actually stay in longer than an hour? It seems like a I spend so much time curling my hair and then the curls just fall out an hour later!
  10. I have dark hair, fair skin and lighter eyes and I love clinique's strawberry fudge!

    Birth Control

    I'm just wondering I cannot take BC in the form of a pill due to other medical problems so I use what is called a Nuva Ring. Does anyone know any information on the Nuva Ring and the correlation of Acne?
  12. Thanks guys, I think I'm going to try a brush cause I'm not getting very good coverage using my fingers!
  13. Hey Everyone! I have a question ... What is the best way to cover up post acne marks? What techniques are the best? Should I use brushes or figures? Any suggestions? I no longer have any active acne so it's all about covering up the past! Thanks so much!
  14. I was super depressed about my weight until i did something about it! If you want a buddy to track what you eat and how much you exercise let me know cause I'm in! Good luck!
  15. Oh making friends is hard but I'm sure you will find someone you will have something in common with and then wow you made a new friend. My family moved to a new city when I went away to university which made it really hard to meet new people as I wasn't living in the city (only during summertime) and didn't go to school here. But trust me.... you will meet people in the most interesting ways. Sports, the gym, work, class, walking home, the bus. Just keep you eyes open. If you find som
  16. I was never "overweight" I guess but I went away to school for 4 years and gained some weight. I have lost all of this weight now but I would just like to lose some extra pounds. I do not agree with the statement you lose first where you gained last cause I gained all my weight in my hip area and that is where I feel like I look the worst! It's hard I eat right and exercise I think I just need to increase the amount of time I am exercising. Maybe this will help out! I am 5'4 and 135lbs so I'
  17. Hey Everyone! I have just lost about 15lbs and would like to continue to lose about 10lbs. I find that eat right and exercising is really helping. But I find that I am having a lot of trouble losing weight around my hips! Does anyone have any suggestions? Thanks so much!
  18. I dont know if they have The Body Shop Outlet Stores here in The United States of America
  19. I'm not sure where you guys are from but I find if I go to a Body Shop Outlet store I save a lot more money.
  20. It really depends on what shade of brown your shirts are. Dark brown looks good with lighter jeans, but I like a lighter brown with dark jeans. Also depends on if you want to dress up your look or leave it more causal. Dark jeans if you want to look more dressed up!
  21. agreed, you must go to prom! I had a blast! Don't worry about your skin if worst come to worst ... use a little makeup to cover it up and try to make the best of your prom! You'll have fun with your friends even if you dont have a date... sometime that can be more fun! Good Luck making a decision. I would suggest going.
  22. I think we just have to remember what works for one person may not work for another! Acne is like a trial and error game!
  23. I agree I don't see any groves that you speak about either! Congrat's on the baby, you look awesome!
  24. Thanks so much for the heads up! I'm going to have to watch for the sales. Also within each box there is a $2 off your next box as well!
  25. I'm going to give them a try ... from the research I have done they seem okay. I think I'll try it for 3 or 4 weeks and see what happens.
