  1. Post on Asian Beauty/Skincare in Skincare

    By haiyuki, posted
    Okay, third time's a charm.
    Asian skincare and beauty has a large focus on the cleansing, treatment, preparation of the skin. There are usually many steps and include mini-massages to promote blood circulation, help with relaxation (or to wake you up!), and to blend products.
    Do you follow an Asian beauty routine?
    What Asian beauty products do you use?
    Do you find that they work better than your native (unless, of course, you live in an Asian country. :)) counterparts?
    Do you follow any AB blogs?
    You can also post your hauls, beauty questions, suggestions, & tips here!
    The timing on this worked out in my favor because I went on a beauty haul and can post my new routine later. I typically use Korean products because I follow a Korean skincare routine, but I am open to trying basically anything that can be easily switched into my skincare regimen. 
     
    In the meantime, I shop here: 
    Full-size products:
    RoseRoseShop
    http://www.roseroseshop.com/
    They take a big long to ship, but their prices are wonderful. Sometimes they have sales where shipping is free, which is basically a steal because shipping is calculated by weight. Sometimes I pay almost as much in shipping as I do in product.
     
    Amazon also has a decent selection, and now they have section dedicated just to Korean beauty products:
    http://www.amazon.com/Korean-Beauty-Store-Skin-Care-Makeup-Hair-Care-Bath-Body/b?ie=UTF8&node=11585018011&ref=spkl_4_0_2103601122&qid=1439391922&pf_rd_p=2103601122&pf_rd_m=ATVPDKIKX0DER&pf_rd_t=301&pf_rd_s=desktop-auto-sparkle&pf_rd_r=1SVJJ7VQ4210Y44GRYXG&pf_rd_i=korean+beauty
     
    Subscription Service:
    I've also JUST gotten off the subscription wait list for this Asian Beauty service, I haven't received my first bag/box yet, but I'll be posting here what I receive once I do!- $12 month for 4-5 Asian full-sized or deluxe-sized sample products:
    https://the3bbox.com/
    Masks & Samples:
    I buy a lot of masks on ebay as well, and random sample packs for around $12-15 for 20-30 samples. 
    Sometimes www.yesstyle.com has deals on these as well.
     
    Questions?
    Has anyone tried http://www.beauteque.com/? They have both full-size products and send out monthly bags/boxes.
    I just found it today and while the prices are bit steep for a monthly box (but they have many products in each one!), the monthly mask set sounds amazing.
     
     
  2. Hello. I'm not sure if I'm allowed to start a topic or not because I've actually been lurking this (or these) site(s) for some time now but I've never had the confidence to actually create an account. Sorry in advance if I mess anything up because I really don't mean it. Anyway, I saw that there was no topic about skincare in general/skin care routines or products that have worked so I decided I would start one.
    Things that have worked for me:
    Cure Nature Aqua Gel- This takes off dead skin and skin makeup leftover and does not burn or anything even when I had wounds on my face. I do have combination but mostly dry skin so this dried me out a little bit but it wasn't much. I recommend this but it runs out easily if you're someone who does a daily exfoliation (like me)Benefit Porefessional- I know this isn't "skincare" but this really works if you want to close your pores. This is a little expensive but this is the best pore "eraser" I've used thus far. If you want a cheaper alternative go with Maybelline Baby Skin Pore Eraser which wasn't as good for me but it's fairly close (and cheaper).            I don't have a skincare routine as of right now but I'm breaking out badly and I have lots of acne scars and dry skin where my blackheads are. I have mostly dry combination skin and if anyone has any good recommendations for me please let me know. My acne scars are very bad and if anyone could help me with them I would be very thankful.
  3. hi! i havent posted anything in a lil while and i was lurking through the forum and came across the beauty/fashion section and i thought i'd share something. 
    i recently purchased the nivea men's post-shave balm because i had noticed NikkieTutorials uses it as her primer in almost every video of hers, and she also raves about it and really has never said anything bad about it. I applied it before my makeup yesterday, i washed and toned my face like usual but this time i skipped moisturizer and regular primer and just went straight to the shave balm before my base and the results were honestly amazing. even 8 or so hours later my foundation looked really nice, and i even noticed i looked less shiny than usual around really oily areas. also, today, just waking up..my face feels really soft and nice, i dont know if its because of the balm but i love it.
    overall i reaaaaaaaallllllllllyyy recommend it! 
  4. I just turned 22 and I am having a problem with crows feet appearing (American slang for wrinkles that appear at the edges of your eyes), and wrinkles under my eyes. I have had crows feet since I was 19 and went through major weight loss (217lb to 90lb). I've been struggling with anorexia and never had the common skin problems like hair growing from the face or excessively dry skin. As I lost over half of my body weight I have a lot of extra skin and I have had to work really hard to tone it. Luckily through the years I have seen great results.
    However my crow's feet are really stubborn. I worry so much about wrinkling skin and I am only 22 which seems way too young to be worrying.
    So I have several questions. Feel free to pick and choose which ones to answer. Or maybe whine that you are young with wrinkles too.
    (I have really fair skin and I always use sunscreen so I doubt it's from sun damage. Most likely due to weight loss. As my mother has almost no crow's feet at 59 years old and my dad is pretty wrinkle free too.)
    What brands (and specific products) do you recommend for getting rid of wrinkles or at least lightening them?What can you do to prevent new wrinkles or wrinkles from appearing?Are there any cosmetic tricks you can use to hide wrinkles?Are there any cosmetic products to fill wrinkles?If I was desperate (and I would probably wait until I was older) are there cosmetic surgery procedures to lessen wrinkles? Would I end up looking like a scary fish face?I am asking here since most of what I found online is directed towards women in their late twenties and upward.
    I used Google Search and found an image that accurately shows my problems. Hopefully it will better explain my issues. I hate having dark circles because I use concealer and I always get white streaks in the wrinkles and I can't seem to blend them out. It always happens 1-2 hours into wearing makeup even with primer. 

  5. Post on Breakout in Skincare

    By derin, posted
    hi guys! i need tips for:
    old poppep pimple scarswensnoseblackheadswhiteheadsi used to have an amazing skin and i've been dealing with these for the past 4 months ._. 
  6.  
    i am someone with veryyyy oily skin. I use oil free moisturizer and even do a good skincare but still my face gets oily. When i wear makeup it starts to get oily after 2 hours even when i set my makeup with a good powder. I also use matte foundation but still my face gets really oily.I get oily around my forehead,nose and cheeks area. 
    The oil makes my face look really dewy,shiny from far but when you come near it kind of looks dicusting. Few people have even asked me what foundation i am using😂😂 because they like the dewy look. I like the natural dewy look but I hate how my face gets super oily soon after the makeup application. 
    Does this happen to anyone? Or am i the only one with this problem?? And please share some tips if you have any😫
     

  7. I have dry lips all year round and I don't know what to do to stop my lips from peeling.
    can anyone recommend any products please? such as a lip scrub that doesn't have a strong scent and a lip balm that actually works. 
    if you recommend me any products that are inexpensive I will be so happy!
