  1. I have very oily skin as well. I would use a very gentle cleanser. It can be a gel cleanser or milk cleanser. I use Sjal Balans and Drunk Elephent Jelly Cleanser. I usually alternate between these depending on if I wear makeup after. The Sjal cleanser is non-foaming and super gentle if my skin is oily and angry.
  2. Diamond Face Mask? Diamond Gel Mask? Diamond Hair Mask?
  3. Yes definitely! I was talking to a makeup artist and we both agreed many women change their makeup during winter and summer. Mostly because in summer you are probably darker too.
  4. These are my favorite products I've created to remove my makeup. I'm a big fan of oil cleansing and milk makeup removing.
  5. I wanted a name that meant more than just one thing to someone. Anyone can be all pretty.
  6. I like to play nintendo switch, drink wine and pretend to describe their notes, explore old parts of NYC, and think of all the wonderful places I could go to. I'm a fake traveler - I love spending afternoons thinking of itineraries of places I've never been, looking up relais & chateaus and the sights near by. It's like window shopping except with travel.
  7. I think it's really interesting as a color correcting treatment. I'm not familiar with the research that supports Centella Asiatic Complex but the Mineral Solution and the Raspberry Extract are AMAZING for your skin. The active for red raspberry extract works as a powerful anti-oxidant to flush the skin of toxins. If you are trying to neutralize red through I would avoid products with Alcohol and I generally avoid anything with BHT which is banned in the EU. BHT is most likely a by-product of the formulation so not always something to worry about.
  8. Ah they're gorgeous!! I Totally understand - Winners is like a treasure hunt. HOWEVER I happen to know the beauty buyer at winners and I'll shoot her an email.
  9. I understand your pain but it sounds like you're really abusing your skin. Oily skin is a result of totally unbalanced skin - trust me I just figured out how to get rid of mine after 30 years. Instead of using a towel you should use a product with Glycolic Acid (Alpha Hydroxy Acid) and Salicylic Acid (Beta Hydroxy Acids) - these ingredients work to gently exfoliate instead WITHOUT an abrasive action like a scrub. You can incorporate them into your skincare routine as a face wash you use at night or with a micro / resurfacing peel. Remember these are gentle peels and take 4-6 weeks to see results. I would also ditch the toner and switch to a purifying facial mist with antibacterial plant waters like willow bark or rose water. Instead of striping your skin - try the peel for the whiteheads/ blackheads AND a very lightweight serum to keep skin balanced. Also for larger acne you should see a dermatologist. Good luck! Hope it works out for you.
  10. You should always wash your face with lukewarm water. It's all lies about cold water diminishing pores - shocking your skin will just cause redness and irritation. Same with very hot water. Remember always wash your hands before you wash your face!
  11. I LOVE AMIKA! All their hair products have the same smell and I use the clarifying Shampoo which keeps my hair from feeling greasy
  12. I use benefit kabrow because I'm always in a hurry and the pot comes with a brush that unscrews from the cap.
  13. Amorepacific Color Control Cushion
