Hey Olivia,

If you go into your profile there should be an area below your profile pic (and below the amount of reviews you've done/comments made etc) that says:

Total Points
Points Spent
Points Available 

That last one will show you how many points you have available for the vault. If it's not showing correctly there let us know and we'll look into it.

Thanks :)

Thanks, MagpieFi.  The reviews vary so widely on these mats that I thought I’d just ask on here first.  

One of the sites I was reading on said to start off with the mat covered with a thin cloth and to only use the mat for 10 mins at a time during the first week, while building up pain tolerance, slowly building up to a t-shirt and 15 mins per time, and gradually getting to bare skin on the mat for 20+ minutes. 

I think it may be worth a purchase, as acupuncture has helped me in the past, and having a mat would make it easier for me as it’s an at-home treatment.

I have a shakti mat 
I have the odd binge on using it 
I was so so when I first got it as I had to slowly increase my time on it and slowly decrease my clothes while on it
so the aim is to lie on it with naked skin eg on your back with a rug over top 
I found mine good and I don't use it all the time as I tend to nod off while I'm on it it seriously helped me with neck ache and sore feet.
.id say they are worth a try x

Have any of you ladies used an acupressure mat?  There seem to be a few out there, basically the same look or design with different brand names, and most are similarly priced. 

I’m looking at possibly getting one to use for pain relief, and just would like to know if anyone’s actually used one, or if I’m falling for a fad that may end up being a waste of money.

Back then -

Teens. Lipgloss. Tinted if I wasn’t scared of getting in trouble. Very occasional eyeliner/mascara. Tinted moisturiser. Had TERRIBLE skin and someone had warned me that makeup would make it worse

20s. black eyeliner, black mascara, lip gloss and at most bb cream or mineral powder (note: this was when I felt like there was no point trying coz I’d never be pretty). Skin was settling so starting to experiment.

now (30s). Arrived at  a makeup place I love and am happy with my face as well. GlamGlow glowstarter under foundation (currently obsessed with TooFaced Peach perfect) topped with translucent powder, under cheeks/chin and side of nose bronzer, blush, cheekbone and eyebrow arch highlighter, navy or black waterline liner, eyes fine either using pencils or 2-5 colours of shadow, black mascara, lipstick to tone in with shadow, often quite bold. Good skin - realised its to do with skincare and product type, not makeup as a whole

   Elise I got into warm toned eyeshadows when I started liking more of gradient of color on my eyes and found that cool tones took more work to look grounded on my warm skintone plus I used to think that cool tones would make my eyes look more brown, but they look black brown no matter what eyeshadow look I have. The closest I've come to making them look more brown was when I did warm brown eyeshadow look with a reddish brown and teal duochrome eyeshadow over that. 

    My problem with mismatching foundation was when I was overseas I never got properly color matched. Alot of Asian cosmetics aren't made to match your skin color correctly, they're made to make people lighter and more the skin color they want to be. So I had like three shades to choose from. I never chose a cool toned foundation because I knew had warmer toned skin.

Now: colour corrector under eyes, Too Faced Peach Primer, Foundation. Tarte Shape Tape under the eyes and anywhere else, bake with too faced or laura mercier powder, blush, bronzer, highlight, fill in brows with brow wiz/pomade/gel, cut crease or smokey eye, hourglass mascara, hourglass ambient powder to finish, too faced setting spray. Lipstick liquid or fenty gloss bomb. I'm probably forgetting something.

Amazing the difference climate makes, right? I’m on day 3 in spring in japan and even with flying for 17 hours over two trips, and being less careful than usual with my skin it’s clearer and has lost the puffy look it had a week ago when I was exhausted to the core and not getting outside enough. It’s early spring here so colder mornings and nice afternoons, and the humidity’s not kicked in yet, which is the thing that slicks up my face. I do find a massive difference in oil control when I’m using ethique in Your Face in the morning and an oil cleanser at night. My skins not dehydrated but the hormone tornado that is hypothyroidism makes it unpredictable

Hey ya'll. I thought I'd share my journey in fixing/treating my dehydrated skin. I suspected I had a problem, but three weeks ago, my facialist gave me a huge telling off about how dehydrated my skin has become. I just thought it was super oily, but I usually saw her on Saturday mornings, after I'd used my much loved Clinique Oily Skin formula face wash (Bye Felicia), so my skin was usually feeling a bit tight and thirsty.

So my routine before was basically the clinique three step system, except I used pixi glow tonic instead of the clinique toner. Morning and night. Now, its totally different. Here I am three weeks later, its 11pm and my skin would normally be a total oil slick and its normal. NORMAL and has been normal all day. Yes, there is a small amount of oil, as one would expect at the end of 16 hours awake, but its not a slick.

Whats changed? EVERYTHING. Now, my routine looks like detailed below, removing products that foam up, have too much fragrance and getting products that are just moisture, moisture and moisture, and gentle.

Morning
Garnier Rose Milk Cleanser
Pixi Glow Tonic
Mario Badescu Green Tea Spray
Origins Ginzing eyecream
Drunk Elephant (DE) BHydra
Tarte Maracuja Oil
DE Lala Retro Whipped (just a tiny amount)
SPF (Mecca to Save face)

Evening
Goodness Breakup Makeup Balm
DE Beste Jelly Cleanser (This may be replaced)
Mario Badescu Green Tea Spray
Kate somerville retinol eyecream
Tarte Maracuja Oil
Dr Jart+ Active Hydra Vital Sleeping Mask

So yeah, if you have dehydrated skin, I guess there is hope, but this is what is working for me, and I'm just super stoked to have good results in just under a months time (albeit with a lighter wallet). I guess I never took into account moving to a drier climate and working in air conditioning for the past three years, verses old life in a humid climate and no aircon when doing my skincare.

Tannygirl - what made you switch from cool toned to warm toned colours? Did you get accurate colour matching advice or just suddenly realised you are actually warm toned? 

I'm pretty certain I'm cool toned, but you're making me doubt myself now hahaha!

I was dermaneedling my stretch marks just last night!! 

I love love love my dermaneedle device on my face. It has 100% success every time I use it. As for my biggest concern - stretch marks on thighs and butt - I'm much like Marcel and have tried a multitude of products. At the moment my focus is on using the dermaneedle and massaging restorative oils into the skin. 

It will be a long game - I don't expect to see true results for a few months. But I'm really trying to accept that my growth stretch marks are just part of me so I need to embrace them. If all else fails, a good fake tan can usually help to cover them up.

I was actually just looking at some old photos the other day.

Teens: black eyeliner and pink lipgloss, sometimes face powder that was too orange.
Adult: Eyeshadow, eyeliner, correct shade concealer, foundation and powder, lipstick, mascara, blush. Then I've slowly perfected my brow and contouring game, added primer and setting spray. I also prefer to use brushes now. My skincare game has also improved significantly.

Cheeks - Not so into contouring also I always contour my nose and like some bronzer on my forehead. But I love a nude blush on the cheek with a brighter pop of color blended on the apples and a glowy highlight. Need to use all the blushes I collected last year. Mainly into nude blushes and peachy coral shades.

Lips - I love pinky nudes and coral colors. I am not into browns at all and not into plums as much as used to. I occasionally wear reds. I do like fuschia. I mainly wear bullet lipsticks and lip crayons to liquid lipsticks and glosses. I love colors that brighten up my skin and face.

Just an extra step I do - I color back in the two main beauty spots on my face after my makeup finished since they are blurred by foundation.

Me this year (Gosh I have so much makeup)

Base - Using up acquired foundations, I love a fuller coverage, satiny natural looking foundation, BB is my bestie if I'm wearing makeup in harsh daylight as it makes it more smooth and my sunscreen doesn't pill 

Eyebrows - Bold brows but seeing individual hairs is must, got really into my brows since changing my glasses frames to ones that have more of a cat eye since that really brings out my brows. Fiber brows is a new staple added to brow products. Love using it in the inner brow to fill things in and ad more texture to my brows. 

Eyes - Working on using up some of my palettes, love, love warm tones, also like that monochromatic full face look. A blended gradient of color on my eyes between my lids and eye brows is a must, my most boring looking palette full of a gradient of transition colors from MG is my fave. Winged liner is essential, trying to sometimes line my eyes with eyeshadow instead of liquid liner. Tubing mascara is essential as most mascaras smear. Shimmer on the lids sometimes just a matte highlight, but always shimmer on my inner corners.

I used to do thick black eyeliner,  mascara, eyeshadow,  foundation and powder. Now I only do bb cream or foundation and mascara, sometimes I powder sometimes I don't.
If I am going out for the night I will do my eyes. 
I prefer a natural look and I feel like I look better when my face is not plastered in makeup.

Me last year 
Base - Trying out different foundations different coverage options. Start trying to use concealer under my eyes regularly.
Eyebrows - I regularly use powder, pencil and gel.
Eyes - Out with the cool tones and in with the warm tones. I resent the cool toned quad in the my Kat Von D Shade and Light eyeshadow palette that used to be my fave. Love rusty, red toned browns. Decluttered alot of my cool toned eyeshadows and started buying warm toned palettes. Love gold tones into shimmer on the lids. Wing liner is still frustrating but essential. Start applying eyeshadow to my under eyes.
Cheeks - Late to the contour game but started doing it. Got really into blush, blush becomes the item I collect and hoard, followed by highlighters. Love a glowy highlight but dip my toe into the slightly stronger highlights.
Lips - Mainly into neutral and nude pinks, also love fuschia, steer away from browns, start liking corally nudes.

I've always been pretty basic. Generally just mascara and one eyeshadow(at a time), black liner in the waterline. My favorite early look I did about 9 years ago was green eyeshadow, mascara, false lashes, bright red lip and black contacts. I was in a mood that day, very loud makeup. Had work that day too, atleast people left me a lone. Felt amazing I think I picture somewhere, might post it if I can find it.

Today my makeup is more refined? I have found my foundation shade, use primer and setting spray, eye primer, more than one eyeshadow colour, blush, lip liners. Always been confident about lipsticks all shades. Not a glossy fan. Tried highlight today it was a fail, may be some months before I try again lol.
