   I have medium length hair (used to be longer) that I can't wash every day so my scalp gets oily and then my ends are all dry. I found that Ethique St Clements really helped balance out my scalp so I didn't get oily as quickly. It's free of nasties and one bar lasts for a long time so really affordable in the long run. You can get it at Farmers, Life Pharmacy or Unichem.

My hairs oily as heck, and I wash it daily bc otherwise I feel disgusting. I find it helps stop the ends from drying out if I only shampoo the roots, then use a heavier Conditioner on the lengths followed by a quick once over everything with a light conditioner just to make brushing it out easier

[color=#333333]Hi! I have really oily hair. It's actually dry on the bottoms. Once I wash it it's like straw. But in 12 hours it's super oily again. I wash 3-4 times a week and it is still oily. I feel like I should be washing it 6 days a week but I know that's bad for hair.[/color]
[color=#333333]I still don't understand cones, different washes, etc. I would like a recommendation for a gentle shampoo I can use every other day that I can buy at any store. All I am looking for is a good shampoo that is gentle with no bad chemicals. It doesn't have to be $1 dollar but I prefer to stay at less than $10 for shampoo.[/color]

To be honest, I'm just tired of looking for a remedy that really works. Now I just use several sets of false eyelashes https://alleyelashes.com/hudabeauty/ It takes a minimum of time and doesn't hurt my eyelashes. I continue to use castor oil as a natural nutritional supplement, but I don’t really hope for fast growth.

At one stage Moisture Mist was my holy grail foundation but then my skin changed and sadly it doesn't work for me anymore. I do love their CC cream though. 

Such a shame as they have been around for such a long time.

I can't believe its been three years since your Dad passed Trudi, sending you massive hugs but so lovely to visit him xxx

Thanks Shan xxxx Yes kid free is always a treat ha ha ha. But they are getting older now and although they drive us round the bend sometimes, I wouldn't have it any other way.

I did a big shop online, and got a number of things, mostly Kat Von D - and for the most, was highly disappointed- high hopes for her products, but not a fan.

the one Sephora product I liked was a foot mask (someone mentioned a Lavender one ), I think I got the lavender, but I got a few of the ones in the green packet, each time I purchased them - gave some away as gifts, my partner even used one. It’s the only product I’d rush to buy from a Sephora.
We had a lovely family lunch today with my in-laws, niece and nephew. Was a great catch up and nice way to end the weekend.
Wow. That’s interesting. I’ve still got a few Moisture Mist products. Thanks

I finally just moved into a house with a bath. Last night I used the last of my Lush bubble bar, lit my favourite candles and popped open a bottle of wine. It was amazing and so relaxing. I stayed in a little too long as I looked like a prune when I got out lol.

When I was in my local Farmers store last week, I was informed by the sales lady in the beauty department that the Moisture Mist range is being discontinued due to certain ingredients being no longer available.  

If you’re a Moisture Mist fan stock up on your favourites while you can, as the range will be phased out by the end of this year.

We had a couple of kid free hours so hubby and I went and visited my parents. It was nice to be able to relax and catch up without running around after the kids. It was lovely to just be able to catch up without the distraction. My Dad is also not very well so I'm wanting to spend as much time with him as possible x

Today I straightened my hair because I thought  bugger it. I'm going to do something nice for myself and deal with my increasingly thick and out of control hair.

It's a small, insignificant thing to do, and I'm not going anywhere, but I instantly feel better and my hair feels a lot better too.

So tell me friends, what have you done today to make yourself feel better?

I just use flannels and microfibre face cloths so it’s environmentally friendly. But I buy them in shades like black that hide the marks on them.

Toning as I understand it is for removing excess oil and dirt which improves skintone and minimizes pores. I find spray toners well the ones that I have used are not a super fine mist which is most likely why I wipe them off. Going forward I think I'll continue to wipe the toner off. Also concerned about the amount of cotton balls I'm going through, not environmentally friendly and all. Can anyone recommend some affordable reusable options?

If I'm honest, I'm not all that sure what the purpose of a toner is. I know its supposed to be an important part of your skincare regime but I just feel like it doesn't do anything other than drench my face with what feels like water lol.

Do you know, until you asked that question I’d forgotten about wiping toner off. I always just leave it on (if I use a toner at all). But I do now remember as a teen my Mum telling me to apply it then wipe it off.

I'm currently using a La Roche Posay spray toner. It sprays really hard and fast so drenches my face. I tend to let it soak in then sort of pat it in. If it is too wet I will pat it dry.

   I think it's a preference thing. The idea of wiping your face off with a cotton pad was to get off any dirt or makeup left on your face or residue left behind from your cleanser before you continue with your skincare routine. I double cleanse so I don't see the need to do that. I only use a cotton round with my glycolic toner because it's a chemical exfoliator. Every thing else I pat or spritz on.
