paging RedCatWaves - a newbie to active skincare here!

RCW,
What is the difference between the Clear and Ultra Emu oil?

The DY site doesn't specify.

Thanks

By the way, I really like the wheat germ cleanser.

I MUCH prefer the ultra, and happily pay extra for it because it absorbs so beautifully.

Glad you like the cleanser!
RCW,

I noticed for the Hyaluronic Acid, DY has 1 oz for $30, while the Ingredients to Die For site has a 1 oz sample for $5 and 8 oz is $20.

Wow, what a price difference. Is the HA from ITDF the real thing?

RedCatWaves, I was looking at your daily routine & I didn't see that the DME Cream is in it. Do you use the Salicylic Acid instead or are you now using both of these?

AM
cleanse with Wheat Germ Oil cleanser
PSF DMAE
PSF Vitamin C
Tri-Luma (on pigmented patches only)
Retin-A 0.1%
Mineral Makeup

PM
cleanse with Wheat Germ Oil cleanser
Retin-A 0.1%
Super CP Serum
emu oil mixed with hyaluronic acid]
DMAE from Garden of Wisdon (using up my old stock...then I will use PSF DMAE twice a day and switch around my evening routine to use the PSF DMAE first)
Thanks, RedCatWaves.

So are you saying the Cetaphil is a detergent? I've been using it since my Ped. recommended it for my son's eczema, and my skin has been clear, but itchy, so that could explain it.
i have eczema, and the cetaphil made it worse. a dermo i was seeing years and years and years ago recommended it...but he did say it may not work for me...and it didn't.

when i was kid, i used some type of soap that started with an "a". it wasn't aveeno, and not if it is still made today. but it was very very mild. i also had to use tepid water.

I think it's just good marketing on the part of Cetaphil...maybe if they say their product is gentle enough times, even people who have gone to college for 12 years will believe it.
So... where do you get this wheat germ oil cleanser? And does it cost the earth? Is it similar at all to the DHC stuff?

I don't like any of the DHC cleansers...they're all detergent containing also.

It's now the single most important part of my anti-aging skincare routine. My skin is firmer than it has been since I was 20...my upper eyelids (a problem area for me) look lifted and even my lips look fuller, more like their old selves.
PSF? is the DMAE good for 35 year old skin?

RCW, have you tried DY's DMAE? if so, how did you like it?

thanks VTmom.

PS...i am almost finished with the sample of 25% Vit C...a few brown spots (left by pimples) are fading faster than usual. my full bottle will not arrive for another 8 days or so.

i will update again after i have used the full size bottle for a month.

RCW,
Did you use the 3% of DMAE from DY? I noticed that the DMAE from PSF is 3%. You also mentioned that you prefer the cleanser from PSF? How does PSF vit c compare to DY vit c?

I prefer PSF's castille cleanser, but that's really just a scent preference. DY's Wheat Germ cleanser is still a great product. I find very little difference between the Vit C from either vendor. I just order it from whichever one I happen to be ordering other stuff from.
