  • Klairs Gentle Black Cleanser really works for decongestion and against blackheads. I really recommend it if your skin is sensitive to BHA’s and foaming cleansers but still experience congestion. It’s a holly grail for my sensitive rosacea with oily T-zone. I don’t wear make up but I put sunscreen on every day.

  • About the Nuface. Do you wipe off the gel it comes with after use, or do u rub it in and leave it on after? I find it's sticky and doesn't feel good on the face. What do u use? The gel it comes with or u buy something else.

  • Hi Renee, Happy New Year! Again, thank you for everything you do to make skincare so much more fun and the nerdy science stuff more accessible. So I have a stumper for you. I have some very long surgical scars (greater than 18 inches). If I were living in Korea, what would they have me use to reduce the appearance as much as possible? I read that Guerisson 9 Complex is suggested, but that was the only thing I could find. Thoughts?

  • The Nuface device died on me after owning it for 2 years and the customer support couldn't do anything. So you're basically paying $100/yr for it if you want another and have to keep replacing it. I didn't see any difference in my skin when using it so didn't repurchase it. If anyone really wants it, it goes on sale often for $200. I've read that microcurrent isn't long lasting and just temporary so please keep that in mind. You're better off just exercising to get blood to your face and slapping and pinching it honestly to get blood here and there

  • YES that Dragon’s Blood Oil Cleanser is HEAVENLY. Also a Boxwalla find for me & while I haven’t repurchased yet I do fully intend to down the road (aka once I’ve worked through at least most of my oil cleansers!) As a side note, I’m also a massive Boxwalla fan; have been w/ them about a year & a half now & while of course I have my favorites there’s only been a single item I haven’t liked/ been able to readily use. I also really appreciate the every other month schedule - it feels just right - & even enjoy the great repurpose-able boxes things arrive in! Highly recommend the service to anyone who might be considering it.

And recently I purchased the Trinity wrinkle reducer, LED red light attachment, so it’s a lit time time consuming. Now that I see the LED mask you’re using, I’m thinking to get mask instead. What do you think? Thank you and Happy New Year❤️🎉
