Well, Stowaway Cosmetics has just
released a set of four face items that are each only...
I take forever getting ready in the mornings mostly because of the number of skin care products involved and partly because of the way I apply them. I tend to smooth small amounts of product over each section of my face (each cheek, forehead, eyelids, nose and chin) one by one for EACH product… I know I’m meant to be pouring product into my palms and then just patting it into my face but I feel like my greedy dry palms absorb everything and the product doesn’t get to all of my face. If I add more I feel like I’m wasting product. 😭
I’m curious, how does everyone else in the community apply their multilayers of skincare? Is anyone else a turtle in the mornings like me?
Try a silicone beauty sponge thingy? (Sorry make-up is not my jam! 😂) I read somewhere in a comment that someone was using it to apply skincare products as to not waste any… I am pretty quick in the morning as my routine is short ! Maybe you can put your stuff in a basket so you are more mobile? That is what I did for night time routine, so that I can do it everywhere: on the couch watching a serie or on my bed, … 🙂
thats a great idea. i personally dont like it for appying bb creams since you have to finish with a blender or sponge…
but for applying creams and serums it should be perfect and you can just spray sanitizer afterwards on and its always clean.
will definitely try it tonight 🙂
Good luck! I hope it will work for you! 😉
Thanks for the tip! I will definitely look into this. Although I would’ve thought a sponge would by definition absorb product, lol. Happy to be wrong about this!
Well, I am Talking about silicone tools not real sponges 😉
Haha, good point!
Well I thought I was very slow in my morning and evening routine but when I read about your style in the morning routine I learned that there are those who are slower than me😂😆
in morning just wash face and put moisturizer then sunscreen then my make up😀😀
Has anyone else not received an email with the code for the fish brush and 20% off? I’ve been posting and uploaded a profile picture but haven’t received anything. 🙁
no but i think the fish brush if you order maybe they will include it …
Hi @sephiria. I’m sorry we missed you! We sent the first round of code to signups, so I’m tagging @pohim and he can send you the code. I apologize for missing you!
I’m here 🙂 Can you please email me at [email protected] @Sephiria? 🙂 I will be more than happy to send you the code right away! thanks
Will do! Thanks for all the speedy replies 🙂
Same here… :/
@elisabeth, @pohim can send you the code. Sorry we missed you!
I’ve already sent an e-mail to Pohim last week, and he has sent me the code 🙂
I’m looking for a cheaper alternative to SK II’s Facial Treatment Essence which i absolutely love but is hell on my wallet 🙁 I’ve read that Missha’s First Treatment Essence was good before they changed the formula. Any other suggestions?
Fermentation, First Essences, and that FTE Glow: Secret Key vs. Naruko Facial Essence Review
here’s some options that are in the similar vein but not as expensive 🙂
Iope Bio Essence feels lovely and moisturizing!
COSRX Galactomyces 95 Whitening Power Essence
COSRX Galactomyces Alcohol Free Toner
been told these are pretty much the same but cheaper!
If you find a good one, let me know. I’m having the same issue as the moment 🙂
Agree with all the comments there, great help !! 😀
I have ridiculously puffy undereyes despite usually getting a solid 8 hours of sleep every night. 🙁 Does anyone have any eye cream recommendations to help with this? I can’t even use under eye concealer because it creases and makes the bags look even worse. 🙁
I have under-eye bags too @sephiria. Unfortunately, under-eye bags are about the fat underneath the skin, not the skin itself. But short of surgery (which I’ve been tempted to do), I’ve found that using a concealer UNDER the eye bag (where the shadow is) helps; just don’t use the concealer on the puffy part, or else it will emphasize it. A soft, creamy concealer is best; one that won’t sink into creases.
Thanks heaps for the tip @annapark 🙂
For puffy eyes after a good nights sleep, a cold spoon trick usually works. Let it sit under your eyes for about 10 minutes. I dont think there is a “good” eye cream that helps with this issue because its something natural that happens to everyone and usually doesn’t last that long. Anything moisturizing helps though, as for concealer have you tried The Saem Perfect Tip Concealer, I have natural creases under my eye and it is amazing at hiding it. I don’t have to touch up around 6 hours.
Thanks @mellysam for your tips! I must admit I’m usually too rushed in the mornings to leave a cold spoon under my eyes for 10 minutes (precious sleep!) but I will definitely look into the Saem Perfect Tip concealer!
As others have said, a cream itself won’t get rid of the under-eye bags but a moisturizing eye cream will help with makeup application. For mornings I use Scinic Snail matrix cream and for evenings I use Belif 360 eye mask!
I’m trying out the AHC The Real Eye Cream for Face — it has a cooling metal applicator that I use to massage under the eyes for some lymphatic drainage. That might be a good (and relatively) quick way for you to massage out some of that excess water in the morning.
Ooh, this sounds interesting! How do you generally massage under the eyes? I’m worried about pulling the delicate skin and creating more wrinkles, lol
Has anyone with combination skin tried the Cosrx rice spa mask for a long period of time? I know fiddy did a glowing review of the product but some people on reddit complained of closed comedones when used continuously for a week. 🙁
