    This may have been mentioned earlier, but I was surprised that the points required for $100 rouge reward has gone up. I was told that it is now 2500 points for the reward
    Anyone else see this?

    @Monsy ~ I have not seen anything yet. It usually comes in March.
    @Haven ~ I am just VIB now so have not seen much regarding VIBR. If it's so, that really sucks! What is the point of a rewards program, that never truly rewards you?!?

    I thought that's what it was from the start.

    Did anybody buy The Ordinary new Peeling Solution? I did & it's fabulous! I like it better than DE. I noticed that most of the reviews say that it stings like crazy - it did not on me, not even a little. Hopefully my product is ok lol. I kept waiting for my skin to catch fire & melt off the way they talked. Nope, nothing. The product made my skin super super smooth, soft & brightened/even toned.

    Oh, my Neulash eyelash update: VERY, very long eyelashes now
    How is it different from the DE Babyfacial? I am super happy with DE and I don't want to change a winning team. Still interested though.

    I use the complete DE line exclusively. TLC is my favorite, but I wouldn't want to miss any other DE items either. I could do without A-Passioni though as I have a Retin-A prescription. The only thing that I miss is shopping new products. It can get boring only using DE. I hope DE comes up with some new fun products - just to change up my routine.

    I saw that. I wonder if it's like the ULTA card and you will be able to get extra points when you use it.

    No, definitely do not change if you are happy. I found that when I've done that in the past, I regretted it. Its just slightly different & maybe that was because it was my first use. I felt that it made my skin even softer/smoother & a bit more even toned.

    I have really sensitive skin with Rosacea so I don’t use TLC or Framboos, but their C serum is the only one my skin tolerates. I haven’t tried the reformulation though because I’ve stopped using it temporarily for A-Passioni. I’ve never used Retin-A or even retinol so I’m taking it really slowly with A-Passioni; so far so good (after a bad first attempt treating my skin like it was a normal person’s). I agree on hoping for some new things. It does get boring. I also use DE exclusively except for my sunscreen.

    I was just reading some articles from January talking about DE wanting to sell the company sometime this year. Not really looking forward to what that may mean.

    I love the DE Babyfacial but after reading so many great reviews about the Ordinary one I tried it a yr or so ago. It ripped my skin raw. I had never had that happen with the Babyfacial. My skin is used to strong products. After I used it I waited a week & used my Babyfacial & had no issues. I wanted to make sure it was the product & not my skin freaking out. I waited another week & gave the Ordinary another try, same thing my skin was raw. Both times I left it on less than 10 minutes. I gave it away.

    I use Babyfacial twice a week with no issues. I think the difference for my skin is that Babyfacial contains soothing anti-irritants as well as other ingredients that are beneficial. It's totally worth the price for me. I love how my skin feels after I use it. I use several DE products. Maybe it's a good thing they don't just churn out back to back products & instead spend the time to make quality products. I don't mind the cost when I know a product includes many great ingredients for my skin in addition to the ones for the main target of the product.

    My skin is very sensitive too, including Rosacea. What really made a big and lasting difference were some med spa treatments (IPL and Fraxel) with an experienced dermatologist and sticking exclusively to DE. While both has been expensive - and still is - it has been worth the money. A lot of people, including myself, developed sensitized skin due to experimenting with dozens of different products. There is just too much on the market and we are always on the hunt for the latest remedy.

    Watching the skin issues of Youtubers, who test a lot of products and change their routing every too weeks has made this issue very visible to me. I feel sorry for the big Youtube stars such as Wayne, who promotes Drunk Elephant in October ("It changed my skin"), then hypes Dr. Denis Gross just two months later ("Alpha Peel the best exfoliater ever despite the alcohol), and again a month later ruining his skin with Accutane. He is just one example of many.

    Just be smart with your choices whatever you put on your skin. I am very happy with my skin now, only using the Hourglass Skin Tint to even out my complexion. In my case, less was more. Though less was certainly not cheaper.

    Thanks for the heads-up on DE wanting to sell the company. Oh dear.

    Thanks. That's what I thought. I will stick to DE. I appreciate that DE gets some competition from The Ordinary or other brands that feature active ingredients. I still believe that good quality has its price, thus The Ordinary can't offer the same quality as DE.

    I agree that it is a good thing that DE doesn't turn out product after product. I still lust for something new to get excited. :-)

    This - I agree 100% they have a very focused product line. Quality > Quantity. I use DE almost exclusively ( in addition to prescription tretinoin and Hada Labo hyaluronic acid) and my skin has never looked better. I will say that I've been getting more frequent chemical peels and micro derm and DE helps maintain the results I get from those treatments.

    Same here. The DE price point is insane though. I only make bulk purchases when I have a 20% discount.

    I did Fraxel in November and love the results. I’d like to do Clear and Brilliant treatments going forward to maintain. I’ve been using Zo Skin Health products since and, while the routine is “boring” (and not cheap), I think there’s something positive to be said about having a boring skincare routine.

    It's really true. I have more like a "suspicious 35" rather than a "suspicious 6", lol, and that has kept my rosacea at bay for the last 20 years. Before I figured out my triggers it was very frustrating. Boring is way better than frustrating.

    HA seems to be so YMMV, I think maybe because of the different sizes used in different products. Some really irritate me, others dry me out, etc. Haven't tried Hada Labo, but I recently started using Skinceuticals Hydrating B5 Gel and so far so good.

    As far as expense, while it would be great to be able to use CeraVe or something similarly priced, I think limiting experimenting and also being restricted in what my skin tolerates has probably saved me money overall.

    I wanted to pull an @elegant-one and share some recent products I've been loving.

    I bought the NARS Skin Deep palette and already raved about it on the NARS thread. I love it so much. It really truly is my perfect neutral palette. I also bought some Bobbi Brown cream shadow sticks and the vitamin enriched face base back in early January during a Nordstrom price match. I really love all of these too! I've been applying the face base as moisturizer/primer and it works very nicely. The cream shadow sticks I purchased are Taupe, Nude Beach, and Golden Pink. When I haven't been using the NARS palette, I've been using the cream shadow sticks. Sometimes I use them as a base for the powder shadows. They're so lovely! I have By Terry Ombre Blackstars and, while I like those, sometimes they're a little too va-va-voom for my job. Bobbi Brown's sticks are more subdued, but still very pretty.

    For lip products, I've been loving the reformulations of Chanel Rouge Coco Flash in Boy and the reformulation of Cle de Peau Refined Lip Luminizer in Lavender. These are two examples of the very rare instance when I actually prefer the reformulated version of a product.

    Oh! And I had a gift with purchase that included Revitabrow, so I've started applying it diligently every night and am hoping to see some good results!

    I know there are other things I've been using and loving, so I'll respond to myself at some point and go on a tangent about those as well.

    For lip products, I've been loving the reformulations of Chanel Rouge Coco Flash in Boy and the reformulation of Cle de Peau Refined Lip Luminizer in Lavender. These are two examples of the very rare instance when I actually prefer the reformulated version of a product.

    Oh! And I had a gift with purchase that included Revitabrow, so I've started applying it diligently every night and am hoping to see some good results!

    I know there are other things I've been using and loving, so I'll respond to myself at some point and go on a tangent about those as well.
    To jump on the products I've been loving train, I would love to add some. The Marc Jacobs O!Mega Shadow in O!MG and Brav-O!. I've been doing single washes of color with my finger and getting complements.
