Really Need Help this Time!


My face is so dry right now I can't stand it! I do everything as always to clean my face but the other night I used my hair removal cream which I do every now and then with this cream I bought from Sally's called GiGi. Ever since then I wake up in the morning with dry skin, I feel it so dry, you can see it that it looks so dry and I just have to wash it right away to apply moisturizer and sunscreen but even then around my lip area it still feels kind of dry after washing and applying all my creams. It's so weird cause this is not the first time I've used this cream and it has never left my face feeling dry like these past days. Really need help...what is another good hair removal cream to buy for next time...& what should I do now for my dry skin...?

I can't help you w/ hair removal other than recommending an epilator (Braun Silk-e).

For your dry skin, however, I recommend honey. That's right, right-off-the-grocery-shelf honey. Use it just like you would a cleanser. Get your face damp (not wet). Put a nickel to quarter's worth of honey in your finger tips, and rub around like you would any liquid cleanser. Its sticky, but as soon as it makes contact w/ the water on your face, it smoothes around nicely.

Honey works well b/c it is a natural humectant. It acts to lock in the moisture your skin already has, rather than stripping it away. Follow up w/ a light moisturizer and you're set.

Are you removing facial hair?

Maybe I misunderstood you, but it sounds like you are using hair removal cream on your face and that is what is causing the dryness. I think you'd be better off waxing or threading than using chemicals to remove the hair. I've tried products like that on my legs and it was not a good situation. I don't know what they use there but it is a no-go for me.

Spotty is right about the honey :)

Yes...facial hair

It's not the first time I use though so I'm surprised now that this time it left my skin so dry. I used the same one other times and never happen before. So I'm clueless now...

What honey do you ladies use?

What's the name....which one should I use...?

honey is honey

Any honey will do. Honey is pretty much honey. I usually just buy the grocery store brand honey. Give it a whirl. I hope you like it.

Spotty's right. You can use any honey - organic, cheap generic, creamy, or liquid. It really doesn't matter. You can also get quite a few beauty products that contain honey, but the straight-off-the-shelf version will be cheapest and easiest to find.

For more great honey tips, read the reviews posted here. Hope that helps!

Good ideas for hair removal

We actually had a thread about this topic a while back that I think you might find really useful here. Lots of ladies recommending their secrets ;)

Do I wash after...?

Do I leave the honey on my face or wash it after some minutes...?

Wash it off after a few minutes

You can use it as a quick exfoliator in the shower (assuming you use creamed honey, not the soft stuff) or you can soak in the tub with a honey mask for a few minutes before rinsing.

It's called Rice's Lucky Clover Honey the one I have.
