  1. I've experienced similar issues with moisturizers and have had to drop Aveeno (breaks me out), Cetaphil (shiny, oily), and Neutrogena (shiny, oily, and breaks me out). I used The Body Shop Vitamin E Nourishing Night, which was pretty successful. I switched because I got bored and because I didn't feel moisturized enough, like the cream just sat on my skin. Right now, I'm using Korres Yoghurt Cream, which is made for oily and dehydrated skin. The ingredients are supposed to be all natural, and
  2. Christ CursedSoul, I can't believe someone would do that. I would be so mortified. And angry.
  3. When I went back to Vietnam this summer, all I drank was fresh green tea (not made from dried tea leaves) and my skin was the clearest it had ever been in years. I hesitate to attribute this newfound clarity to my beverage though, I also had a fever and almost completely stress free. I still drink it anyway because I like the taste and it's a good way to get water into your body. At least there's that.
  4. I would also recommend Physician's Formula, although I'm currently in love with one of Revlon's older limited edition lines.
  5. The word BB cream encompasses a huge myriad of products. It originated in Germany as an all-in-one product for patients who had recently undergone laser treatments/plastic surgery. Within the last few years, BB cream became popularized by Korean celebrities. Basically, it's supposed to be a moisturizer, foundation/concealer, and primer all in one. Different companies put their own spin on the product (with MAC and Lancome recently trying to capitalize on this trend) by including anti-aging compo
  6. I hear you Whitershade! I love Ecotools! Super, super soft taklon brushes. Softer than the brushes I've experienced by Benefit and Sonia Kashuk. A five piece brush set is 10.00, so the prices are very reasonable. Their brush handles are made of bamboo, ferrule is recycled aluminum, and they donate 1% of their annual sales to environmental organizations. What more could I ask for?
  7. I only wear make-up for special occasions. Most of the time, I go out with only moisturizer and sunscreen. So all of today and yesterday. Wednesday I had a meeting, so I wanted to make a good impression. It's not because my skin is great or I have high and mighty ideals about not conforming to society's standards about beauty. I don't wear make-up because I can't find a color that matches me and doesn't cause break outs.
  8. Yeah. I liked it because it didn't smear, like all mascaras do on me (oily eyelids suck), but the wands are really fat and short. It makes it awkward to manuver around your eye. I also feel like the effects were sort of disappointing compared to other mascaras. I'm going to keep using it for now to see if I can get the hang of it.
  9. I don't think it's just fair complexions that have difficulty finding a match. I think everyone does to some degree. I feel like I see a lot more colors for fair skins than very dark skins. I could be wrong, of course, because I fall in between and I'm not looking for either. Still, I experience the same issues. Too pink, too yellow, too gray.
  10. Here is a list of common side effects. http://depression.emedtv.com/celexa/celexa-side-effects.html I started Celexa with the intent to get off of it as soon as I could reign in my self-destructive tendencies. I exercise fairly often. I'm healthier than the average person. I just can't get over my OCD. As far as I've noticed, Celexa has not given me any more acne. And I'm pretty obsessive about my acne so I'm pretty sure I would have been able to tell. I also have not gained any weight. I've
  11. I would recommend using another moisturizer, just because your skin needs a break from sunscreen once in a while.
  12. Well, Rand0m, no. I don't intend to take drugs forever. Health care is covered by my tuition, so I actually don't pay for appointments. Celexa is $2 a bottle. That's less than a bottle of cough syrup. I did more physical harm to my body because of OCD than Celexa is doing currently. I won't quibble about theology here, but if the 'Lord' put you on this earth with a physiological condition and gave you access to medication, it seems only right to take advantage of the opportunities that ar
  13. I realize the sentiments towards anti-depressants are very negative, but there is a reason why they exist. Depression isn't just a feeling you get when you don't eat right or exercise, sometimes it's much deeper than that. Sometimes there a physiological misses in the brain. I'm 19 and in my second year of college. I'm on anti-depressants prescribed by a psychiatrist. I see a psychiatrist and a psychologist/counselor. I eat healthy (5'4", 100 lb) and I exercise two to three times a week, some
  14. Already been done. Six Weeks Without a Wash: The Soapless Experiment Taken from the article: "I was amazed to find that the point when my skin looked its best was after a month of not using anything at all. As a result, I've become far more moderate in what products I use and what I am prepared to spend money on." ---------------------------- I actually tried this in February 2009 because I was getting so sick of the crap I was putting on my face. I've cycled through so many cleansers, salic
  15. After you did your face plant, did you get paranoid and start to overwash? Overwashing with harsh cleansers can trigger acne. Because you're working hard, you're probably sweating hard too. I would recommend exfoliating with a baby brush (about $5 at Target) or you could get a facial brush (smaller, but $3 at the Body Shop). Don't be too rough with your face, the manual exfoliation is to prevent clogged pores caused by dead skin mixed with oil and sweat. I would avoid touching your face at al
