Ooh I like argan oil too. Evening primrose oil is also a favorite right now.

I started using Weleda almond cleansing cream in the AM and I really like it. Also I periodically use homemade vitamin C serum and I started doing that again. Right now I'm making a gel that is just aloe gel, distilled water, and vitamin c powder. My skin was really dry and flaky for a while so I was afraid to mess with it, but the minute it starts behaving again I start fooling around with stuff again haha.

I know squeezing can be gross, but I've found that if you steam your face well first and use an extraction tool (this is the one I have) they tend to come out easier, and despite it being sort of gross it's cool to watch.


Oh god, I looked up a video on youtube of someone using one of those and it was so gross and I need one ASAP.

I am also looking for a good liquid eye make up remover that I can use to take off my 5 lbs of eye makeup

Kidding...sorta. My mascara tends to build up and get all gross.

I used to use a great lancome one, and a clinique one, but avoiding those brands.

Wipes are NOT doing the job.

Any reccomendations? Something that is good at removing, not burny, and vegan :)

I use a lot of black liner and mascara. I switched over to using pure jojoba oil to get all my makeup off last month. It is great!

I use plain old coconut oil to take off all my makeup. I just started last month in a fit of cheapness- I ran out of Josie maran cleansing oil and had coconut oil in the kitchen so I tried it. It works surprisingly well! I do a double cleanse so coconut oil to take off all makeup, let it sit for a few minutes then remove with hot water and muslin cloth. Follow with cleanser because my face would break out like mad if I left coconut oil residue on it. I have heard nice things about jojoba oil as missmuffcake recommended too- I just didn't have jojoba around the house to try.

Oooohhh using an oil is really appealing to me! Natural and I would think that it would not burn, and although my skin is oily some places, on the eyes is not a problem! Thanks Ladies :)

Almond oil would be another one but I have almond, jojoba and argan. If I leave coconut oil on my face, it'll break out but almond has been pretty gentle and so has argan. I mostly use jojoba on my ears.

I use a Beauty Without Cruelty eye makeup remover. It's the clear one. I dont wear heavy eye makeup, just mineral eyeshadow/liner and maybe mascara, so i don't know how strong it is. But! I love it, and it doesnt irritate my eyes.

I need a solution to my clogged pores/blackheads. Something other than squeezing the shiitake out of my skin, which I know is horrible. I don't really get pimples (I happen to have one right now, but they are rare), but my pores on my nose are gross. I generally have oily skin. I know next to nothing about this stuff. Help?



forgot about john masters organics...the bearberry products are for oily/combo skin...i have only used the serum, it works & is a lot gentler than other similar products:) http://www.johnmasters.com/ok.htm

I only use oils as moisturizer lately and love how quickly absorbed and awesome jojoba feels. I use jojoba and now argan on my face and haven't had any breakouts. Sometimes I go crazy and use coconut or even shea butter on my face but I have broken out that way at times. They are also great on my lips.

From what I've heard jojoba won't break you out at all, and can help you actually make less oil so you could break out less.

I've been using jojoba followed with shea or coconut or cocoa butter on my hands and they have been the softest ever! I want to make my own oil mixes for all my skin now, but in the summer I guess it would all be liquid (and jojoba isn't necessarily good for sun, it can amplify sun apparently).

I jumped on the Clarisonic bandwagon. I've been using it for a week and I like how clean and smooth my skin feels.

First time posting but long time lurker...

I switched from Origins (when they got bought by Estee Lauder) to Juice Beauty (who has recently started selling in China) and now need to find yet again another vegan skin care regimen. I have sensitive skin and what I think is mild rosacea, so what I am looking for is something oil free and sensitive. I am accustomed to using cleanser, toner/serum, moisturizer and weekly treatments like masks or peels. Any help with products would be AMAZING!!

Since you're in LA, check out Osea as well:

http://www.oseamalibu.com/

They are super high quality products and since you are local I bet there's a shop that will sample them for you.

If you are sampling mychelle, be careful with the peels and scrubs. The ones i have tried do work but they are very harsh. But if your skin does ok with the juice green apple peel regular strength you'd probably be ok with the mychelle peels.

I was planning on trying Boscia next. It's sold at Sephora, not tested on animals, and vegan. At least, so says everything I've read on the internet so far.

I have Roseacea and I'm also in the 30's and should take better care of my skin group. But I just don't know how. All I've figured out is that anything for acne triggers breakouts, as does anything with petrochemicals. I know that sounds kind of crazy, but I used every product the dermatologist recommended, and using nothing worked better. So I stopped going. I started using petrochemical free (or as close as possible as I can get) and that's better. I currently put a tiny bit of unscented Avalon Organics moisturizer on my face, it's actually the hand and body one, and that works ok, but I have to skip a day once a week. I also haven't found anything I can put on at night without breaking out. I alternate the Avalon organics with a Deep Sea Moisturizer I think it's by Dead Sea Salt, or something like that I forgot the name. I really don't know what to use. I'd like something with an SPF too cause I currently don't wear an SPF. I used to wear Neutrogenia SPF, which amazingly didn't make me break out, but I also only ever wore it to the beach, and was in the water 30 min after putting it on. So I don't know if it was on long enough.

Above product is philosophy when hope is not enough serum. This is what philosophy's website says so I think it's ok.


for your reference, our product development team has confirmed that the only philosophy products containing ingredients derived from animals are as follows: pure grace shower cream (contains hydrolyzed milk protein), amazing grace shampoo, bath & shower gel (contains hydrolyzed milk protein) and kiss me lip balms (contain lanolin). all other philosophy products contain ingredients that are of botanical or synthetic origin.
