    Where does bakuchiol come from?

    I'm using a product with it now! The one I'm using is from a brand called The Inkey List (a budget skincare brand in a similar vein to The Ordinary). It's also in products by Herbivore, Ole Henriksen (also tried one of those products — the night cream), and Indeed Labs, to name a few. All of...

    Totally lost, where to start? Skincare routine knowledge: lvl 0?

    There are two different types of toners: hydrating and exfoliating. Hydrating toners are sometimes called essences. They soften the skin and prep it for whatever comes next. Exfoliating (or acid) toners contain alpha hydroxy acids (AHAs) like glycolic acid, lactic acid, or mandelic acid...

    There is activity, just not as much as there was several years ago. Members have moved on, peoples' interests have changed, and social media is much more dominant now. It's unfortunate, but... 🤷‍♀️

    Menstrual cup? Anyone has experience?
