    [–] Friendship ended with Cerave, now local soap companies are my new best friend InkbrushNouveau 1 points ago in SCAcirclejerk

    Srs, that mask is amazing for me. I just started Tret so I'm not going to buy it in the near future, but my skin always feels smooth after using it. Much better than other clay masks in my experience.

    [–] Friendship ended with Cerave, now local soap companies are my new best friend InkbrushNouveau 10 points ago in SCAcirclejerk

    I avoid companies I don't like when reasonable)(Nestlé being one of them) , but sometimes it isn't. And sometimes I really just want to stuff a Digiorno pizza in my face and not worry about the horrible things my $5 just contributed to. Buying local and from smaller companies adds up really fast, and most people need to choose their battles.

    [–] C'mon Gendry! Get your head in the game. InkbrushNouveau 7 points ago in freefolk

    They're the only couple I've consistently wanted to get together. Dany and Jon can end for all I care, Jaime and Brienne won't work out because Jaime is going to die, but Gendrya is the purest love story in the show and I really hope they survive and leave Westeros to travel the world at the end.

    [–] Really? InkbrushNouveau -6 points ago in freefolk

    Not to mention she's had more common sense than Jon in a lot of matters recently. I'm a fan of all of the remaining Starks and think that Jon would make the best ruler out of the main contenders, but he is dumb as fuck and ignores good advice, seemingly just because it comes out of Sansa's mouth and he didn't like her growing up.

    I'd want a Maine coon or a ragamuffin so I could have a giant fluff that had the potential to be bigger than me.

    [–] What are your travel carry on essentials? InkbrushNouveau 2 points ago in scacjdiscussion

    I don't wear makeup, but for a recent trip I made (only using a single carry on bag) I mostly relied on samples I've received from beauty boxes for my skincare--a gel cleanser, some moisturizer, and a toner. I also brought a couple TO items like squalane (for facial oil and for OCM before my gel cleanser) and Buffet. I brought a sample of Tatcha's vitamin C/AHA serum, but for the amount of time I was gone I don't think I needed an exfoliant. Same as the Caudalie serum sample I packed. I also brought a sunscreen (50 ml tube) that I've mostly finished off.

    I was able to fit all of that, Agave lip mask, a Lush shampoo bar, a small tube of toothpaste, and a liquid vitamin B-12 supplement in my quart bag while still having some room left. If I were to redo it, I'd stick with a cleanser, an oil, a single serum, a moisturizer, sun screen, and a lip product. If I were going for more than a week or two I might want to bring more, but for short trips doing just the basics is fine for me.

    [–] Girlfriend wants less sex but doesnt want me (male) to buy a Fleshlight InkbrushNouveau 2 points ago in sex

    Does she have toys? Regardless, maybe you could look together and each get one. I've done that with my husband. Some men also like the feeling of vibrators on their head (penis, not shoulders, if that isn't obvious) so you may be able to try that too. Try using toys together if she seems weird about it; it's basically like masturbating together but better.

    There's nothing wrong with wanting a fleshlight. There's nothing wrong with using one. Even if your sex drives perfectly matched, sometimes you just want to masturbate. If this is a hard no from her, it's a little weird and I'd start to look at other areas where she may have control issues. Otherwise, she may be curious about toys herself but feels shy about exploring it without some encouragement.

    [–] [Product Question] What are your thoughts on Facial Sprays? InkbrushNouveau 1 points ago in SkincareAddiction

    They're overrated IMO. If I have one I just use it before/after hyaluronic acid, but they aren't any better for that than spritzing water on my face.

    I get the appeal but try to avoid them.

    [–] [MISCELLANEOUS] What skincare ingredient will stop you from buying a product? InkbrushNouveau 2 points ago in SkincareAddiction

    I try to avoid palm and palm derivatives as much as possible, but it's one of those ingredients that has a million names and forms. Can't we just have products that aren't contributing to habitat loss of orangutans and other endangered species?

    [–] [Skin Concerns] Can I get some recommendations on how to deal with the current state of my skin? InkbrushNouveau 3 points ago in SkincareAddiction

    I have a similar complexion. Vitamin C (Melano CC) and niacinimide helped with my redness. For SF and blackheads, a BHA product would work but SF, to some extent, will always be there. As for volume, I'd recommend a hyaluronic acid serum and a good moisturizer. They won't be miracle workers, but with minor dullness and sagging that can change depending on water retention, it should help a little.

    [–] Wait, parents are supposed to play with their kids? InkbrushNouveau 8 points ago in raisedbynarcissists

    I have siblings, but I'm much younger than them. Some of my friends have young children and it was culture shock when I first saw my friends playing with their kids. My mom read to me when I was really little (which I appreciate), but everything else was me on my own. Puzzles, toys, drawing. I don't remember ever sharing normal activities with her once I entered elementary school.

    [–] This IG model has been faking the condition heterochromia (details in comment) InkbrushNouveau 5 points ago in Instagramreality

    It looks like the dress has removable straps that she took off for the segment based on the little loop of fabric popping up on one side of the dress.

    [–] This IG model has been faking the condition heterochromia (details in comment) InkbrushNouveau 2 points ago in Instagramreality

    I went to school with a punk guy who had green/blue heterochromia. He was quiet, kind of an outcast, and wore liberty spikes a good amount of the time. Nobody teased him for his eyes. One of my friends had a huge crush on him, partially because of his eyes. But I don't think most people noticed his heterochromia because his hair and clothing were much more obvious.

    [–] [Acne] Quitting coffee cleared my skin but I'm sad. Because coffee. InkbrushNouveau 60 points ago in SkincareAddiction

    Both green and black teas set off my reflux really badly. Coffee does to some extent, but usually I'm okay with it as long as I drink it with a meal. I think it may have to do with the higher tannin content because wine, especially red wine, can also give me heartburn.

    [–] [Skin Concern] I have this patch of skin where I get tons of ingrown hairs and this redness on my chin. I’m a woman and have PCOS, unsure how I should be treating it InkbrushNouveau 1 points ago in SkincareAddiction

    I usually pluck the shit out of it, get in growns and pimples, pop, pick, heal, scar, new hair grow

    Same. I saw your description and immediately started picking at my face. It's such a bad habit. I noticed that niacinimide has helped reduce redness I've had there forever, but it won't go away completely because if I feel stubble I have to try and get it.

    [–] [Research] Gut Biome Influence on Skin InkbrushNouveau 2 points ago in SkincareAddiction

    Not OP, but I'd recommend trying Yakult. Back before I knew I was lactose intolerant, I tried it based on good reviews. I drank Yakult daily, and after a couple of weeks my symptoms (bloating and constipation with occasional diarrhea at the time) mostly went away. I stopped taking it after a while, but it did help with a lot of my problems.

    I started taking it along with a probiotic for anxiety (Garden of Life, IIRC?) recently though. I've found that they've been helping my mood quite a bit. I'm still on antidepressants, but I have noticed a marked difference since taking probiotics. Rather than feeling meh but functional most of the time, I feel alright and have motivation.

    [–] [Personal] If your body doesn’t like dairy, your body doesn’t like dairy 🤷‍♀️ InkbrushNouveau 1 points ago in SkincareAddiction

    If it makes you feel any better, I have lactose intolerance and dairy has zero effect on my skin. I've done exclusion diets a few times and even after finding mild allergies nothing has changed my skin. The one exception is alcohol, which makes my skin a bit oilier and more prone to CCs if I drink too often or too much.

    Everybody is different. It won't hurt to test out, but it's not necessarily causing your issues.

    [–] 👑 InkbrushNouveau 7 points ago in JonWinsTheThrone

    From what I remember of the books, it was quite clear that she would only have three children and they would all be taken from her. I thought either she was BSing or she had hit menopause but didn't realize it.

    [–] You gave up your crown to save the people, Would she do the same? InkbrushNouveau 34 points ago in NobodyWinsTheThrone

    She's basically a horse girl but with dragons. Her dragons are her primary personality trait. Without them, she'd be boring and powerless.

    She also doesn't have any respect for Westerosi people. She was all about freeing the slaves and letting people choose her as their leader until she gets to Westeros where nobody knows anything about her, at which point she goes all fire and brimstone on them because they fear she's going to act like her father.

    She started out alright but after Khal Drogo dies she just gets more and more boring.

    [–] What’s the creepiest thing you’ve come across on Reddit? InkbrushNouveau 55 points ago in AskReddit

    It's an urban legend/creepy pasta as well. Young woman lives alone and has a friend over. They go out to grab something to eat and come back only for the friend to start acting weird and insisting she needs to go to the store. Young woman tells her to go by herself, friend is all "no, please go with me, it's late and I don't want to go by myself" and young woman agrees. They get outside and friend tells her there was a man hiding under the bed with a knife.

    [–] What’s the creepiest thing you’ve come across on Reddit? InkbrushNouveau 10 points ago in AskReddit

    I looked for this person out of curiosity but found another person who sounds similar, though a bit older. If you go back several months, she was really pretty. Her recent photos are sad. Her skin looks awful and scabby, and her weight loss just makes her look... not healthy. It also looks like she's tried to stop using several times but hasn't succeeded.

    [–] What’s the creepiest thing you’ve come across on Reddit? InkbrushNouveau 7 points ago in AskReddit

    The first time I ever took space cookies I was like... "Wow, is this how it feels to be normal?"

    This was exactly my first experience with pot. I know it's kind of a light drug for most people, but it and alcohol are the strongest I've tried. I've had depression since childhood, and my first few times trying weed were beautiful. It was like I suddenly knew what it was like to appreciate everything around me and not be worried about the next bad thing that was going to happen. It felt like everything was going to be okay even if I did have problems that arose along the way.

    I started using it regularly a while after that but stopped basically cold turkey after a friend died from a heroin OD. My anxiety went out of control and marijuana was making it worse. Now I only use it a handful of times a year, mostly when I'm having really bad cramps that aren't responding to OTC medication. I'm not sure if it's due to the antidepressants I started or what, but marijuana just doesn't give the same buzz it used to. That's probably a good thing, but I'd still like to experience that every once in a while.

    [–] Hallucinating. Could it be lack of sleep, anxiety, or something else? InkbrushNouveau 0 points ago in AskDocs

    You need to tell the doctor who prescribes your antidepressant about your new symptoms as soon as possible. It's possible that your anxiety is getting so bad that you're hyper-vigilant, but there are other things it could be. I had very similar symptoms when I had B-12 deficiency; this is kind of a "best case" scenario because it's easy to test for and easy to fix with supplements, but changes in mental well being--especially if you are hearing or seeing things that you never did before--could also mean that your mental health is getting worse, you have neurological problems, or something else.
