oh, the blue one with the beads? I had it my sophomore year, it was really nice. I like the cooling effect. could have been stronger though - my t-zone is really bad.

neutrogena keeps my skin clean. it doesnt do miracles for my skin the way clean and clear does, but it keeps my skin as nice as it can be.

I still haven't found anything that does GREAT on my skin! The best so far has been Clinique but I want to find something better.

My skin is too difficult!

for all the ladies talking about skin problems, there is a cream you can get from your doctor called "retin-a". make sure you ask for the cream, not the gel. (the cream works loads better) the only bad part about it is the fact that it dries your skin out terribly. so using a moisturizer the next morning works wonders.

i put the retin-a on at night, and then i use cetaphil moisturizer in the morning and my skin is nearly flawless. (mind you, i used to have TERRIBLE acne.)

ooh, okay. so it's not like, in a bottle? like, pure SA?

The one I use is in a bottle, the consistency is like toner and I put it on after I cleanse.

I use the 2% liquid but you can get it in weaker doses / different formula's.

A home version of BHA/SA is an aspirin mask. You take 3-5 aspirins, mix with water till you get a nice creamy consistency, spread it over your skin (concentrate on problem areas like forehead, nose and chin where you get blocked pores), wait till it dries and then lightly buff it off with a damp piece of cotton wool.

You get basically the same effect but it's a little more hastle. Seriously worth trying though if your skin is looking congested.

I HATE this stuff with a passion. I had SEVERE acne when I was younger, and when I used this stuff, it just burned my skin---making me have bright red skin with acne. I looked so gross. When I can find a pic, I'll post it. You all will be SHOCKED.

you know what, I have never had anything good happen from Vaseline - I think it just doesn't like me!

But, I personally recommend anything from the Blistex lip care range-it has been a staple in my handbag for...lord knows how long!

In the morning, cleanse your face, and then splash your face with ICE COLD water (or the coldest water you have at the time) about 7 times. Its really good for the pores, and after you can tone etc!

Also, I think it is really important to scrub your face neck and cleavage area every 2 days. It keeps your skin fresh, and will help prevent getting unwanted creases, and once you start you just cant stop Smile

The best scrubs to use are the sugar type and salt type, but having said that, St Ives Apricot Scrub is fabulous-and that is neither salt or sugar!

Oh, one more thing - Shu Uemura!!!!!!!

My tips (I bet you already know them)

For oily skin
salt or sugar + lemon juice or kitchen oil or moisturizer

and for the dark circles under your eyes: Iced milk or potatoes


This is not a beauty tip but it's a tip.. for terrible headaches or migraines, put one thin slice of potatoe in each temple. The Potatoe's slice will absorb the headache.. I don't know how or why but it's true. I have suffered migraines since i was a little girl and my mom taught me that tip that her mom did... It really dissappears!! (but go with a neurologist.. it's the best)

How long do you leave the potatos on your eyes ( I assume you mean raw potato slices) and what do you do with the milk, rinse it off...??

Yess.. it's raw potatoe and i leave it for about 5minutes

about the milk: you have to damp some cotton with iced milk and leave it on your eyes for, again, 5 minutes

I think it's a matte foundation that works better for oily skin... not that I have any idea what a matte foundation is. I think like, a cream foundation and then put powder on top works best... AHAH I have no idea lol.

Matte is just the finish of a foundation Jade. It can be in any fomula. I would probably suggest a cream or a powder personally, but that's just a guess. And powder on top is a must.

anything oil free; with spf, if possible.

CoverGirl and Revlon are the best drugstore foundations.
