Re: Mario Badescu Skin Care

Hello

I tried their moisturizer for oily skin which suposedly calms the skin too, but I felt a burning sensation in my cheeks. I guess it was the balsam peru.

Re: Shaving and rosacea

Hello :) I have the same problem. When I shave more frequently my skin is clearer. I guess it has to do with the fact that longer facial hair contributes to oil build up, bacteria, dead cells build up, etc. and the shaving process (done correctly, meaning using the right products for your skin type)...

Re: NEW Clinique Redness Solutions Daily Protective Base SPF 15

I totally hated the protective base. I tried a sample which is good b4 u buy the full sizes. It was too shiny 4 me(I already have oily skin) It made the redness less obvious but I don't like it. The city block and the almost makeup are way better 4 me. :)

Re: Quercetin, Burdock, and Hydrocloric acid,,

Hello!

I take Burdock and it helps a lot if u have pustules. I- could not tolerate the HCL, I guess I have to much acid bc I get reflux sometimes so I will see a specialist about that. I seem 2 be allergic to the quercetin, I tried many times to use it and it seems to give allergies. (frustrated)

Re: Seborreic dermatitis or Rosacea???

:) Hi Artist and thank u 4 ur comment. Well I have oily skin so dryness is not really a problem. The Rosacea and seb derm improved with the Metrogel and the oatmeal cleanser from Linda Sy helped with the itching somewhat, I am so sad that Dr. Sy will retire. (tears) I started using Dermadoctor's Bor...
