Spoiler #2 was on dermstores fb page this morning if anyone wants to know…not sure if I should say or not?!?!

fetchingmommy

Please do! I couldn’t locate it on their public page. Are you a part of their private group?

I believe a competitive and clean product is Boscia Exfoliating Peel gel which I love. Nothing seems to make my face as clear and soft as this!

But, I found that I also have rosacea after not knowing what it was for years (in my 50’s). It’s the weirdest thing to deal with.

Sometimes food or drink can make it flare up, stress, and witch hazel. It’s hard to explain because almost everyone comments that there is nothing bad in witch hazel. But my skin goes crazy so now I just avoid it. I can tolerate alcohol, but I wouldn’t purposefully add it into my personal daily routine even in a small dose if I can avoid it.

I haven’t used Boscia Exfoliating gel in a while because I’m on sub overload with some fantastic sensitive cleaners. But worth checking out because it gets a “clean” product seal for whatever that’s worth. If someone can decode their ingredient label – please inform me with your thoughts.

Awesome! Thank you Beautyfix! I just turned forty so I’m like old now. This will be perfect to fight those fine lines I can see creeping up on my forehead to remind me that I’m no longer 39.

Alice

I’ll be 60 in two weeks. Recently people guessed I was 40-ish. It’s all about attitude and how you carry yourself. Skin care and good genes don’t hurt either, lol. Don’t worry about your age, ladies. Do what brings you joy.

Brittney

Forty’s not old , it’s only a mindset , if you feel young, look young and keep your skin and beauty regimen up, plus an active social life , then Truly forty isn’t old , just saying I just turned 40 too , and never felt or looked so good 🥰👍🥳

Tanya

Love it so far…

Alex

Oooh. I’d love to try this in the KP on my arms!

Tammy g.

Not yet beauty fix….

Nikkim

Haha same thought here

Denatured alcohol is not good to put on your face, and it is one of the ingredients in this product. I have rosacea and have to be careful about this ingredient. But it is widely regarded as an ingredient to avoid, particularly when applied to your face.

I’m hoping the rest of the spoilers make up for this item!

Brenda

I used to get chemical peels at a medspa for acne scarring, and they would always use alcohol pads before the peel for the acid to penetrate deeper into the skin in order to get an even peeling layer. If the skin is dried prior to the peel you are more likely to get the white frost which means that the superficial layer has been burned off so you will get an even peel afterward.

Dorothy

I think it’s not too big of a deal for most but for me with dry skin it is a definite dealbreaker.

Drminniecooper

Denatured alcohol can be drying depending on the concentration in the product used, so some avoid it for that reason and because they know from personal history how it affects them.  However, some websites have taken a scare mongering approach where they list it with misleading context as a bad ingredient to always avoid.  The weakness in that approach is easy to see here where several people have looked at the ingredients list, saw denatured alcohol and then discounted the entire product, without noting what the product is even used for.

The product listed here is itself a chemical exfoliant with both a weak acid and a strong base in the ingredients list (If you want to see a really scary chemical for dermal contact, look up potassium hydroxide, but here it is probably used in low concentration and buffered with the weak acid product so you won’t see that kind of damage).  You are using it for the peeling action which is also going to be drying as a side effect if not used correctly, so the complaints about denatured alcohol being drying in this product are a distraction.  Use it as per the directions and sparingly at first and keep track of other products that you use along side it and it should probably reach the effect it’s going for with time.  I mean, acid peels aren’t for everybody and with good reason due to individual sensitivities.

Context matters in chemical usage and some websites out there (ahem paula) are really bad at oversimplifying it down to good and bad and creating confusion while doing so.

hum, must explain why it is in so many high end and effective beauty products…… but to each their own

Denise Atkinson

Well I think dry skin is one issue but rosacea is something else. So any issue like that I’m sure has it’s own set of do’s and don’ts. So unless it’s something that I know about I wouldn’t presume to tell her otherwise. I can take a wire brush to my skin and nothing bothers it but even food can cause a rosacea flare unfortunately

Dorothy

There are alcohols that are hydrating, maybe you are thinking is those?

I agree with the poster who says that just because a high end brand uses it in their products means it’s okay.

Tamara

I have no idea if denatured alcohol is bad for my skin or not – never thought to look into it. However, I wouldn’t trust it just because it’s in so many high end products. Artificial fragrances are known to be bad for health and have no benefits for the skin, yet most high end skin care and hair care continue to include them. 🤷🏻‍♀️

Alice

Love Beautyfix!

Jill M

Great spoiler, but I have wayyyyy too many subs coming in november already! I am gonna wait to see more spoilers, and maybe I’ll still get it for some Christmas gifts and stocking stuffers 🤪

Lisa

So excited about this. I have used their Ultra Softening Heel and Elbow Cream and it is worth every penny. Looking forward to trying another product from the Glytone line. Last months box was great and this month is shaping up to be equally as good. Nice to see the Dermstore stepping up their beauty box game.

Redhed36

Yes! Yes! Yes! Keep em coming.

Nina

Ughhh not enough to bring me back BeautyFix. Like another poster said, this spoiler contains alcohol denat which is drying and can breakout skin. The hefty price tag value of $64 doesn’t negate the risk for me. Unless the other spoilers are out of this world I’ll be skipping, yet again 😕

Jackie

This looks good at first (compared to recent boxes), but it is not strong enough for me and contains alcohol so it is a no go.

Jacki

Yay! I can definitely use this

Lynn

WOW! Yes and thank you beauty fix.

Nat

I am cool with that. I am so ready to resub. I haven’t gotten a box for the past 5 month as there was nothing interesting there to me. Waiting for more

Melissa

Love love love!!!! Great brand and great product!

Anna

Whoa! Worth it for this one alone
