ITA!!!


Why single him out?  You don't think other vendors haven't had anything done? You think Doris Dalton was born with those fat lips?  I mean, heck, we're chatting in a BEAUTY forum so we're all at least moderately interested in caring for what we have and looking our best.  We have ladies here who will color their grey hair, do Botox, laser treatments, maybe some boob jobs or face lifts in order to have a certain look so why is it an obsession if Dimitri doesn't want to give in to hair loss?  He lives in the land of beautiful people so there's probably some kind of expectation he's got to live up to.  But even if he didn't, he can afford it so it's his business if he wants to get the hair transplant.  I'm sure there are people on TV (newscasters) who have done it in order to look their best for being on camera.  


This is what I was referring to.  You yourself just made a rude comment about a vendor.  So, no one has been singled out.  Everyone is always going to have an opinion, its nothing new.

@Shelbelle  I decided on the Prai. What the heck. I can send it back. The only thing is, I remember when Kathy had quite a neck on her. She's a doll, I'll say nothing derogatory about her. She loves animals. Anyway, one day  she came on-years ago-and her neck was sculpted!! Well, I knew she'd had it 'done'. She has never said her creams did it but I knew. Same for Shannon. Same kind of neck. Then one day, it was all gone. But again, she never promoted a neck cream. I really doubt anything could have helped either one of them but surgery. So now, years later, Kathy has something that is 'unlike anything in the world' to quote Shannon. Maybe Kathy decided we needed it and has been working on it. Anyway, enough, just wanted to say I'm going to try it. With Dimitri's I'm in for a lifetime or it'll all come back. The money I'd have to shell out every month is a turn off.

I saw him briefly last night and thought I have to get on the board and find out what is wrong with him.  At first I thought "what kind of horrible haircut is that," then I thought "my God, I hope he didn't have brain surgery."  All is evidently well.  Dimitri is just being Dimitri.

@catlover  You can look up MASK HOUSE Diamond V Fit Mask on Amazon.  It's the same thing but cheaper.  Reviews are mixed but more positive than negative.

@mima  I really like his pore products.  If you can swing it, I'd also suggest 311-793.  I use all the products in that kit.


Also, as word of warning.  In the kit you bought, the Pore Magnet peel off mask will sting/burn a little when you first apply it but that sensation tapers off as the mask dries down.


@JeanLouiseFinch  Do I need both kits or should I have ordered the one you suggested?  I'll pay anything right now.  I am desperate.  Would I alternate the products in both kits?

 

Thank you!!!!


@mima  I don't want to tell you how to spend your money, but honestly I'd get both.  You'll be supplied with three different moisturizing creams.  I have never used the Youth Preservation Elite Cream.  Most Skinn users prefer the original to the elite, but I'm not sure why.  I've never used either.  For me, I prefer a cream at night and something lighter in the day.  The Poreless Cream is a little thinner consistency.  Dimitri recommends using only two days per week AM & PM.  Then you have the Take the Weekend Off Cream.  If you haven't used this before, it is intended to replace your entire PM routine two consecutive nights per week.  Most, I think, do it on Sat. & Sun., but if you're "weekend" falls on different days, that's fine.  On those two nights, do your cleansing and only use the TTWO, nothing else.  Your AM routine remains the same throughout.  All that said, you will use the Pore Detox Cleanser up to three times per week.  IDK what other cleanser you're using, but I'll discuss that later.   IDK what other serums and so forth that you're using, but before you apply them, first apply the Pore Authority (PM) or Matte Manager (AM) to your problem areas - just a couple of drops patted on the targeted area.  Any other serums go on afterward.  Then, alternate the Youth Preservation Cream and Poreless Cream Mon. thru Fri., and use the Take the Weekend Off on Sat. & Sun. night.  

During the day, follow your routine as usual, but if you're using a tinted moisturizer or BB/CC cream, you might be able to eliminate a separate moisturizer.  If you have days where you're not wearing makeup, you can use either the YPC or PC, if your skin tolerates it.  I usually prefer a lighter moisturizer in the daytime, but that's me.  One of these days, I might try the YPC.

A couple other things I'll mention....a few years ago, I had an issue with clogged pores.  I discovered Dr. Young Camellia Deep Cleansing Oil (Amazon Prime) and while I was skeptical about using oil on my face, it made a world of difference.  Within short order my skin had improved and my oil production was normalized.  I still use the Dr. Young cleansing oil today, at night, but sometimes will use the Skinn PM cleanser.  It's also an excellent product.  Since you can only use the Pore Detox cleanser occasionally, I'd also recommend the Skinn AM cleanser for all other mornings.  After using the Dr. Young cleansing oil for awhile, I bought a Foreo Luna Mini and it loved how it made things even better.  Unfortunately, it konked out at around a year.  I replaced it with an inexpensive dupe from Amazon, which is still going strong.  They're inexpensive, under $20, and I would recommend one for you too, to help in getting your skin as clean as possible without causing any irritation.  I realize your head might be spinning, but exfoliation is also an important part of keeping your pores clean so don't forget that part.  You have many options there.  

Good luck to you. 


@JeanLouiseFinchOh my, a lot of good info. Thank you!!  I will for sure have to print this out and study it.  I ended up ordering the other kit you suggested also.  I can't wait to get it!

 

After I get it all, I'm sure I'll have questions.  Much appreciated!

 

Thank you so much for telling me about that other kit.  I'll be back for more info.  when I get my stuff.  Thank you!

You're welcome, @mima.  If you are on Facebook, you'll have to find the Dimitri's Dazzlers page and join.  If you're new to Skinn, the members will be happy to give you some direction.

I love Dimitri............but I'd consider plastic surgery before I'd wear that chin strap contraption for 40 minutes a day, a couple times a week, for the rest of my life................................

Oh brother, are you kidding me?  OK, maybe I could have said "full" or "plumped up" to be more PC, but why is the word "fat" construed to be an insult?  It's an adjective, a descriptive word.  I never called Doris Dalton a name or assaulted her character.

I agree, I only buy the lip balm from him now. I started with him and was happy but so many new and great "have to have" products came out that I gave up.
