So, here goes. My (34M) SO (28F) likes to have a little tan, only not actual tan since that is bad for you and you can get skin cancer, but applied tan, using rub-on lotion. I think this is a bit silly, but if that makes her feel better about herself, so be it. I'm all for that, though I don't personally care at all about the pigment of her skin - she is always beautiful, and I try to make sure she knows I feel that way.
But the problem is, it takes a few hours to set and she often doesn't have time to do this in the middle of the day. This means she'll go to bed covered in this lotion, which results in our sheets looking like they haven't been changed for months.. also I'd really prefer not to get any of it on me, as I've no desire to get a fake tan - especially not random spots of it!
So last night before bed she showered and THEN applied the lotion, which I found a bit annoying. She sometimes promises to change the sheets the next day, but so far I don't recall her ever doing it... keep reading on reddit ➡
I was telling my girlfriend how I never wear moisturizer/lotion because besides the fact I don't need it, I hate how it covers your hands and skin and gets on everything until you wash down really good with soap and water. Especially the feeling of getting in the shower and having to thoroughly wash off layers and layers of it, feeling as if I'm covered in wet soap, even if I've had it on for an entire day.
My girlfriend proceeded to tell me it's suppose to absorb into your skin within a few minutes. Another friend confirmed this.
Curious, do any other EDSer's also experience this?
I'm still learning new things everyday.
Just to be clear, I am not insinuating that I think it is due to EDS, but I thought it'd be interesting to see if others experience this too as our skin tissues are not genetically structured properly.
Please do not assume based on my post that it may be an EDS thing or that this is common in EDSers, as I have no knowledge on if it is or isn't.
If anyone... keep reading on reddit ➡
Background (not sure how important this is but ok): Our family treats maids like part of the family. One maid in particular, my uncle's, was treated really really well. She was a single mother but my uncle and aunt (before she died) helped put her through college. Not only that but they loved her daughter like one of their own and even gave her her name. I pretty much grew up there too, cause I didn't live far and was best friends with my cousin (their youngest of 3 sons). We all got really close to the baby and she pretty much grew up with 3 big brothers and me lol. My mom also helped care for her and babysat her when everyone was busy. She even calls my mom "mama" to this day and the (former) maid encouraged it.
So here's the story. Every year for her birthday I get her gifts. This year since she was already 12 I decided to get her lotion cause she has dry skin and a strawberry facial wash. Nothing too fancy, just some things I thought pre teens would like to have. She's very girly... keep reading on reddit ➡
Do they typically come out every Christmas? Or were these items a one time thing? I’m really interested in procuring these items but I can only find expired overpriced products on EBay and Mercari. I’d rather wait and buy Fresh Product at Retail Price during Christmas if they are going to be back this upcoming season. Thank You!
What my mom asked me to hand her while pointing at hand sanitizer
I decided to purchase the CeraVe Hydrating Cleanser and the Moisturising Lotion last week as I thought it would be good for my sensitive, dry, acne-prone skin. I’ve been using it after I patch tested the lotion and today I noticed small bumps and new spots on my forehead and in between my eyebrows. I also have experienced itchiness that comes and goes after applying the moisturiser so I’m assuming that my skin is not taking it well which is a bummer... My skin felt hydrated the first few days as well but my skin has started to feel tight under the moisturiser, so I’ve only been cleansing once a day and applying the moisturiser on damp skin. Is my skin just adjusting to the new products? Should I drop it or try it out for another week? Are my pores getting clogged from the moisturiser despite being non-comedogenic?
My routine only consists of those products currently with a sunscreen coming on its way. I just want to prep my skin and heal my skin barrier for other products I ordered... keep reading on reddit ➡
I see it a lot in movies, just wondering if it's just a cliché
I get home, and everything is about normal. Mom says she made pizza and it’s in the fridge, and I immediately thank her and rush to the fridge to indulge in a couple slices. While waiting an additional 10 mins (out of 10 hours since my last meal) for my pizza to heat up I chat with my mother about our work days. She then says that her feet are hot and dry and asks me to put lotion on them, to which I reply “No, I’m about to eat and I’d rather not,” and “It’s been a long day, can I eat first?”
She blames me for my “selfishness” and believes that I don’t care about her I just care about the food and house she provides. Telling me things like I should “grow up” and just “be better” which obviously get to me. In hindsight I should of just done it, but I thought it was more practical for the both of us if she had just done it herself.
Any recommendations for a good body cream/lotion that doesn’t linger on your body? I can’t stand the feeling of cream/lotion on my body, I feel sticky and not really “clean” even though I normally put it on after I shower.
I’ve tried in shower body lotion, the neutrogena body whipped lotion, and the cervae moisturizing cream.
My skin tends to run dry as well.
So I've been taking Hyaluronic Acid supplements for a while and it's a serious game changer y'all.
Basically, I was taking a supplement that happened to have Hyaluronic Acid and Vit C in it (vital proteins collagen powder) for a few months and started to notice my skin was crazzzzyyyy soft. Initially thought it was because of the collagen powder itself, but I accidentally switched to the regular version that is just straight collagen and 100% noticed my skin wasn't as soft. Switched back to the one with HA in it a few weeks ago, and once again my skin is the softest it has EVER been.
Like so f*cking soft guys.
So anyway found some really solid research on HA supplements that point to this *not* being some sort of placebo affect. https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC5522662/ .
There seems to be a whole host of other benefits like for your joints, brain, aging processes, etc.. I can't attest to any of this but I c... keep reading on reddit ➡
So I decided to try out the super raved Hada Labo lotion and I got the moist one instead of premium since I have combo skin and it’s summertime. I’ve tried using the lotion several different ways (on damp face, dry face, on top of a toner etc) and it still doesn’t seem that hydrating unless I apply about three entire layers. I love how it applies but it absorbs too quick and my face feels dry.
I’ve also heard that I’m only supposed to be using a small dime sized amount but that doesn’t seem to be enough. Anyone else feel this way? Should I switch to premium once I finish this bottle?
Edit: I’m from NorCal (dry weather) My current routine: Nature republic aloe toner, Hada labo lotion (while previous toner still wet), Boscia cactus juice gel in the tub, Supergoop spf50 sunscreen
I haven't gone to tanning beds before. I'm going to start using melanotan II as I'm extremely pale. I hear I need to keep my skin moist, use high pressure tanning beds, and start out slow. With this said, I hear it's important to get a really good tanning lotion.
With this said...Does anyone have a recommendation on tanning lotion for a beginner who is very pale and does not tan easily? Thank you.
This is how I have always done it. Raw baby. I never f with the lotion. I am circumsized too. It just feels better and is more convienent to use no lotion. If you use lotion I think that you’re a fool and don’t have a strong arm. So basically if you use lotion you are a peon compared to me. Thanks for your time people
Thanks for the help
GoldBond Radiant Renewal is freaking bomb. Something in it exfoliates your skin and I swear when you wake up your dead skin just balls up. It’s lightened old dark spots on my arms and chest
If you try it let me know if it’s working for you too!
I am sick of my lotion fragrances messing with my perfume! I also want to be moisturized without feeling greasy. Thanks fam!
Looking for a sunscreen that is to be used for the hands, legs and neck and provides good protection. Those regular facial sunscreen usually takes too long or spreads badly to areas other than the face which is pretty troublesome.
Regular sunscreens are usually 50ml to 90ml which is too little for daily application for such big areas. The only ones I could find that were 100 to 250ml were Lotions with SPF protection. What's the difference anyway ?
I have been a long user of Japanese sunscreens as for many years their ingredients were way better but it's rather expensive for tiny bottles.
However, I recently saw my local Sephora had Supergoop Play Everyday Lotion selling at 80 bucks for 532ml ! I'm currently using Anessa sunscreen which is like 30 bucks for 60ml. I'm just thinking if it's worth the switch ? How do they compare.

Missha All Around Safe Block Aqua Sun Gel SPF50+/PA++++
I had purchased this sunscreen after I felt I needed something with stronger sun protection than my beloved Biore Watery Essence sunscreen, since I had a recent breakout that left a lot of hyperpigmentation.
My main issues with sunscreen have been breakouts. The Biore watery essence had been the only sunscreen I had used that hadn't broken me out. I sometimes doubt the efficacy of the product though, even though it does state spf 50 :/
Due to my extensive hyperpigmentation, I was willing to take a risk on trying a new sunscreen, and I'm so glad I did! I looked up the Missha Aqua Sun gel on cosdna and it looked like it didn't have any of the clogging ingredients that I try to avoid, so I bought it.
I LOVE the Missha All Around Safe Block Aqua Sun Gel!! It feels and looks higher quality than the Biore sunscreen. It does leave a white cast that, on my darker skin, was unnoticeable by 10-15 minutes after application. After j... keep reading on reddit ➡
