    ^^ I just looked it up. They seems similar to Sunday Riley. That Blue Tansy is in her Luna Sleeping Oil which I got a sample of at Sephora. I really liked it because my skin was so soft in the morning. It has retinol in it. The Herbivore cost less that Riley, which is 100 dollars. I'll take a look at Sephora, thanks. I'll try everything.

    I got a two samples (my friend gave them to me from a rep) - a small jar of 111Skin cream and Black Diamond Eye Mask. The creator is supposed to be a big Harley Street plastic surgeon. He developed the YLift, a minimally invasive face lift.

    The bolded one's are what my mother commented on as being really good in skincare. She's the queen of simple skin care. We'll share the black diamond eye mask and see if it's any good. Not that I'll buy it.

    My skin seems to do well with daily serum and a skin oil at night. I have always hated moisturizers. Even my beloved Mario Badescu's moisturizer doesn't absorb enough.

    Random - this is $570. It's Swiss. Has anyone ever used anything this expensive?



    The rich, unique formula of l'Elixir des Glaciers provides skin the ultimate refinement of a visible lifting effect. Day after day, the sensuous and lusciously creamy texture will reveal a fresher complexion and leave your skin feeling smoother, firmer, toned and looking radiantly youthful and healthy.

    Yay, I hope it works for you too! I'm going to track down a sample of the Luna Sleeping Oil now. I was just reading something about that 111 skin care, I can't remember where I saw it, probably a review in a magazine. Please let us know your results, especially for the skin cream.

I have my makeup done in LA Bloomingdales years ago & they ended up using a foundation that is mainly used by Japanese or Euro/Asians (as was my make up person); she was very surprised. But, I'm pale cool-toned with a bit of pink in my skintone & beige looks very wrongwrongwrong.

This causes all sorts of problems, like an oil slick on huge dry patches (yes, it's as weird as it sounds) and a super dry and flakey t-zone. And my concealer was separating on my face. Not attractive looking at all.
    I hadn't realised that you had been burnt as well as everything else. What a total nightmare for you.
    Thanks to both you & Whitetigeress for the recommendations.
    I have very dry skin with rosacia and I have eczema elsewhere. If I exfoliate it irritates my skin, if I don't I feel like i am wearing a "mask" of dead skin like a snake.
    Moisturisers only go so far, plus the best thing taht I ever used was camilia oil, which I have never been able to find since.
    And then when my face is super-fry and flakey, I get a breakout. As it is around my jawline I am guessing that its hormone related.


    I feel like wearing a brown paperbag most days.


    I came here to say that I bought some Leichner Camera Clear Tinted Foundation from a cheapy shop locally and its been really good - maybe because I have such dry skin an its oil-based but a little goes a long way & gives great coverage.

    Please let me know if the eye mask works once you have tried it. I have not used that one but I have used the Freeze/24, and it really didn't work.

    I like me a lot - but spending $570 for a face cream isn't included in that. They only charge that much because people with more money than brains buy it.

    Novice, have you changed your diet to see if that would help your eczema and rosacea? I've read several testimonials about a wheat free diet and its positive effect on these conditions. Might be worth looking into.

    Also, I heard about camellia oil from a London based friend. She cooks with it. Apparently, she gets it from her friend in Ireland but it's also available on Amazon: https://www.amazon.co.uk/s/ref=nb_sb...=camellia+oil+. I've not tried it yet but am intrigued.

    Oils are a big part of my skincare and try to stay away from the chemical laden lab concoctions as much as possible. Argan and Rosehip seed oils self-doctored with select essential oils are my favorite. Good luck!

    Oh you little star!!! Thanks for that!
    I am fairly "wheat-free" but I think it's mainly stress related.
    Fortunately I am hoping that certain things I am doing will lessen that stress shortly!
    I will be using that camelia oil once I am paid, which might be today.

    ^I guess what I'm saying is that the skin conditions may be autoimmune responses to some food/s, not necessarily wheat. I believe they are forms of inflammation so your body is reacting to something! Have you ever had food allergy testing? Could be enlightening and shocking. I plan on getting it done soon.

    Also, re the Leichner foundation, which shade do you use? I am fair skinned with pink undertones too and these color swatches are not helping with my decision. Must order online so obviously can't test shades beforehand. Thanks!

    I haven't but I would probably end up only being able to drink water and eat air. I have eczema and rosacia and arthritis and asthma/not-asthma; I started taking a daily antihistamine and my breathing is a bit better but my sinuses are lots better....

    I started with the porcelain which was too light, so moved onto the rose - it looks waay darker than when you put it on, but it appears to be super-cheap (like a couple of £)

    I sure will.

    Argirelline is a synthetic amino acid derived from natural extracts which, similar to Botox, prevent the formation of fine lines.

    This is the ingredient that is supposed to be very good for your skin and supposedly works as claimed.

    Thanks I HATE the bags under my eyes. I already spent so much on them, I actually thought of a little nip and tuck but I am too scared.

    I put on the 111Skin Diamond Eye Mask (above). $100 for the packet. There are two applications inside (4 eye pads). I washed my face and did a quick exfoliation.

    The pads are thin mesh with a super liquidy (a serum formula) that you place under your eyes for 20 minutes. I had to lay down or they'd slide off. After 20 minutes you peel them off and pat the serum in. I looked in the mirror and saw a bit of redness where the pads were but then it faded. I went to sleep without eye cream. I'll use the other pads just cause I have them. I really didn't see the point of these other than some good ingredients for your skin. I mean, it wasn't hydrating or smoothing. Maybe if you can afford to use these on a regular basis it might improve whatever needs to be improved.

    After using the Neocutis line - I won it in a raffle a couple of years ago, I was like, whatever. I had about $600 dollars worth of full sized serums, moisturizers, eye creams and hand creams. I used them all up and didn't feel that my skin looked or felt any different. My skin concerns are pink on chin and nose, and dry cheeks.

    I'm so happy with Mario Badescu and a lot of that has to do with that I want to use it. I much preferred a Vitamin C serum to that fancy serum above. I'm not expecting my redness to ever go away but with clean, moisturized skin and a good foundation - Born This Way by Too Faced is the new bomb for me. With that stuff I get compliments - it makes it look flawless. When my skin tone is even I'll wear a bolder lipstick.

    Kasippu - you might want to try a good camouflage type of under eye concealer, with brightening. Try IT Cosmetics bye bye undereye (you must blend well) and Trish McEvoy Instant Eye Lift and Charlotte Tilbury
    The Retoucher. I can get very dark circles if I don't sleep enough and I think the Tilbury is way better than
    Touche Eclat.

    Thanks, chalet. I will put them on my shopping list. 2 more days and I can finally shop at normal shops again. I can already order the Tilbury one on netaporter, I like touche eclat but
    it is a bit heavy
    I actually like the Bye Bye Panda eye I bought once. It hydrated my eyes nicely. I just have to get used to getting older. it sucks.

    I'm buying their concealer sample. They give you the shade you want plus the lighter and the darker shade surrounding your shade. 5 bucks. I do a lot of research and hardly buy anything. My makeup tray has mascara's and concealers. I'll report back.
