    Omg I hope it doesn’t take a year. Ugh I’m always the somehow outlier in data. I switched from pill to iud and they’re like after 6 months most women don’t have a period and I’m like bitch WHERE. My acne is terrifying and it all connected to hormones

    Yeah it was brutal. I was on that bc for so long that I guess I figured I'd "grown out" of my acne. Ha! It was a wreck and my self esteem crashed. Acne is so hard when it's hormonal because yeah you literally can't do anything about it. Hope you adjust soon :heart:

    Have any of y'all used one of those companies that will let you get birth control online? My doctor won't give me a refill unless I go in and I'm obviously nervous about going in right now. She won't let me do a video call or anything (heaven forbid I go a single year without a Pap test :redanger:) She gave me another month so I won't run out but I was thinking of canceling the appointment and going the online route but wanted to see if anyone has done it before and if it went alright? Idk if my insurance will cover it or not but seems like it'd be better rn than going into the office.

    Has anyone used Overtone, specifically the formula for brown hair?
    Or something similar?

    I haven’t used it and I don’t know a ton about the brown hair formula specifically but I can say that Overtone is pretty much known to be one of the best options :)

    Got this Grown Alchemist Hydra Day Cream that is very nice, doesn't have any sun protection in it though which kind of sucks.

    Been using this moisturizer with SPF and I absolutely love it. It really helps me keep my t-zone under control

    I'm a big fan of the conditioner dyes. I've never used overtone but I've used clenditoner. It's def subtle in my dark brown hair but it's how I want it. My hairdresser is always amazed how freshly dyed my hair looks between appts. I'd def try overtone.

    birchbox has a bunch of my fave products on sale. it hurts. bye money:verysad:

    i keep seeing the clenditoner on amazon, and since i have a gift card that's usually my first stop. does it stay in your hair well? i don't want to be transferring onto fabrics. i want it to end up dark teal and the clenditioner already has a teal, but it's kinda light so i'm not sure how much it will show on my hair. ugh i'm probably going to have to lighten my hair just a little bit to get what i want, otherwise it'll probably just make everything look darker, or nothing at all. i was going to get the overtone blue and green and mix them, but getting 2 is a loooot more money compared to the other brand. i guess i'll just have to buy something and give it a try! probably the overtone, i just think mixing those colors would be so pretty.

    Overtone has a teal too tho!

    I honestly didnt even look at anything other than the brown hair stuff bc I didnt want to lighten it, and while it'd be cheaper it's not quite the color I want. A little too blue. It can never be that easy

    I've never had issues with clenditoner transferring onto fabrics or like rinsing out in the shower. I don't think it's strong enough for that. However, I was previously using the rose gold shade and now I'm using the purple, and I notice the purple is def a bit more messy and stains my hands a bit. It comes off with my makeup remover balm, but it's kinda annoying. It's not as vibrant as I see the overtone ads look. So if you want a vibrant teal the clenditoner probably won't do it. It's more like a color depositing conditioner for in between when you'd dye your hair teal. I have my ends a little lightened. Not super bleached tho cause my hair is rly dark. I def see the color there more than the rest. It also shows up with more frequent washes. With the rose gold I'd use it just for a subtle gold coppery color. My hair is waaaay too dark for rose gold to actually show up without some srs bleaching. But after two washes with the purple I can see it. But again it's not like PURPLE.

  13. Uh, only took me 4 years but here we go, finally placed my makeup order. Been binge watching a few beauty youtubers, and getting into skincare at the same time. I would love to settle into a solid routine, which is something that I'm struggling with lately. Perhaps it'll be something to look forward to each morning and evening. Luckily, I don't suffer from acne when it comes to my face (except when I drink alcohol or eat snacks which are things I've cut down), but I do tend to have my skin breakout on my shoulders and my back and I don't really know how to fix that yet. As for my hair, ugh, it's a mess and I'll get into it later.

  14. I've used The Ordindary's salicylic acid as a spot treatment before and had great results, but last night I put a drop on a pimple I have on my cheek, and not only is the pimple still big bright and shiny, but it now has a sort of blistery ring around it like I've burned myself? it's so ouchy

    One of my cheeks is so broken out and won't clear up. Usually my acne at least heals and fades eventually but this cheek has been so stubborn for weeks. I'm insecure and can't wear bronzer or blush. I've checked all the usual suspects, it's not the side of my face I talk on the phone with, etc etc. It's being so stubborn and difficult!!

    my blue and green overtone arrived this week! I was hoping to do a test strand today to see if i even need the bleach that's arriving tomorrow, but the blue is capped so tightly I haven't been able to get it open yet. :thumbup:

    are you using "body" washes/soaps on your back and shoulders? have you tried using any face/acne/breakout products on those areas instead?
