re-post: reequil and lukewarm sunscreens and swiss beauty transluscent powder review

skin type: combination/oily. acne and eczema prone
climate: hot and dry. lots of sun
age: 21
usage timeline: 2 days
current routine(only for face):
am: cetaphil gentle cleanser, eucerin oil control spf 50+, qurez mattifying sunscreen spf50
pm: bioderma atoderm shower oil/garnier micellar water (oil in water type), tazarotene cream 0.1%, emolene+venusia max lotion mixed together, vaseline around the eyes and on the lips.
swiss beauty bake it away translucent loose powder:
most sunscreens look rly shiny on my oily skin so i usually pat some powder with a beauty blender on my face to avoid the comments from ppl lol. i’m on the fence w this one tbh. before this i was using the kay beauty one which i really liked.
i bought this bc it’s quite cheap and a lot of powder. it’s not bad it doesn’t leave much of a cast keeps my face shine free for a few hours but it does settle into my eyelid creases and around my mouth. it also has a slight grainy texture i think the particles arent as fine as the kay beauty one i think i’ll try applying with my fingers or a powder puff and applying slightly less and see if behaves any different.
3/5 not decided if i’ll repurchase or not but i will use it until it runs out
ingredients: Talc, Aluminum Starch Octenylsuccinate,Methylparaben ,Propylparaben , CI 77891,CI 77491, CI 77492, CI1940
reequil ultra matte dry touch sunscreen gel:
everyone and their mother on this subreddit loves this sunscreen so i finally decided to try it out when i saw it was 15% off on nykaa. i totally get what the hype is about omg this rly is matte!! usually i apply sunscreen on bare skin after cleansing but with this i do find it’s better w a moisturizer underneath (emolene).
the texture is very nice and spreadable but bc of the amount of oil absorbing particles in it it leaves like a slight cast almost like i’ve applied powder and not blended it out fully. it goes away after fifteen ish mins and it’s only really visible to me my family didn’t really notice anything off so i’m calling it a win. only con is it pilled a bit on reapplication.
5/5 wrp
ingredients: Cyclopentasiloxane and Dimethicone Crosspolymer, Caprylyl Methicone and PEG-10 Dimethicone/ PPG-20 Crosspolymer, Octinoxate, C12-15 Alkyl Benzoate, Diethylamino Hydroxybenzoyl Hexyl Benzoate, Diethylhexyl Butamido Triazone, Caprylyl Methicone, Zinc Oxide, Titanium Dioxide, Bis Ethylhexyloxyphenol Methoxyphenyl Triazine, Caprylic Capric Triglyceride, Physalis Angulata Extract, Diethylhexyl Syringylidenemalonate, Fragrance
lukewarm sunscreen:
id seen ads for this sunscreen for a while and wasn’t sure about it since it’s not a very well known brand but i’m glad i tried it. i ended up buying it bc i was curious about it. it’s a similar price point to reequil blue for a 100 ml tube and id never tried a sunscreen with tinosorb m.
it has both mineral and organic filters and surprisingly no whitecast so i assume the mineral filters are minimal compared to the chemical ones. good protection super easy to spread really moisturizing and not very shiny. smells faintly like carrots. not matte like the reequil one but it’s acceptable imo pretty natural finish. no pilling. cons are it takes like five to ten mins to dry down fully and they haven’t posted any kind of lab testing results (independent or not) to confirm the spf and pa value so i think i will only use this when i am indoors or going outside late afternoon/evening after 5 pm when the uv index isn’t that high. but i might give it a chance during the afternoons and see if it works or not. i’m also thinking of using it as a moisturizer underneath the reequil blue one.
4/5 wrp
ingredients: Tinosorb® M, Stearic Acid, Carrot Seed Extract, Raspberry Seed Extract, Cyclopentasiloxane, Titanium Dioxide, Zinc Oxide, Cetyl Alcohol, Octyl Methoxycinnamate, Triethanolamine Acetate, Carboxymethylcellulose, DMDM Hydantoin, Emulsifying Wax, Acrylate Cross Polymer C10-30, Methylparaben Sodium, Propylparaben Sodium, Glycerine, Demineralised Water, Fragrance & Permitted Colour
none of these appeared to irritate my acne or eczema( i usually know by the first one or two usages if a product worked for me or not). i was too lazy to patch test so i didnt do it but pls patch test before using new things dont be like me lol i was impatient.
thanks for reading!!

RIP old packaging and old formula elf moisturizer…. You will be missed😭
Elf rebranded this moisturizer and changed the formula, this was my holy grail i repurchased 10+ of these ): it was $10 too, now I have to find a new moisturizer 😭 I loved her, so light weight, no smell, super hydrating. the new rebranded one is thicker, sticky and smells disgusting and burns my face 😩 ELF DONT FIX THINGS THAT ARENT BROKEN😭

2023.04.01 06:11 Euphoric-Laugh377 March Empties and April Goals: Episode 2 of "Why do I buy so many freaking backups?"

March Empties and April Goals: Episode 2 of
March Empties
The Ordinary Squaline Clenaser: My favorite cleanser. Number 1 pick for removing makeup and gently deep cleansing without drying out. Repurchased many times and have a backup I got last year during their November sale. It's expensive though and I don't know if I'll repurchase.
Aquaphor: great lip balm. Have a backup.
Hero Sunscreen: This was my first full size repurchase after getting a sample of this. Really good for color collection on my very fair skin. Just repurchased one for use this summer instead of foundation. Love how it dries down but it can sometimes be too drying for my skin.
Prescription toothpaste and Garnier Sleek and Shine shampoo. Not panning Goals but empties nonetheless.
April Goals:
Neutrogena sunscreen: Love it. Second repurchase and I have a backup. Noncomedogenic and the lightest feeling sunscreen ever. I top it with Elf Halo Glow Powder to help it dry down and it's perfect and oh so gentle on my skin. It can be slippery, so I have to wait a while for it to dry down to put concealer and cream blush on before powder is my only issue.
Vanicream cleanser: This is my first purchase of this and I am halfway through. Very gentle but less cleansing and more drying than The Ordinary cleanser. It pairs well with the spf I am using this month but I don't think it would be cleansing enough for the Hero Sunscreen.
The Ordinary moisturizer: Holy grail and have repurchased many times, but the price went up this year and it is now not moisturizing enough for my skin as I enter my mid 30s. Will be using Cerave moisturizer when this is done, which is much more cost effective.
Tarte Hydroflex concealer: Love it. I went rough a full size and now this mini is almost done. as toddler mom, I've given up on foubdatuon and just put this on for color correction after spf in the morning. Bought another that's on the way.
Maybelline Fast Sculpt brow gel: My holy grail boy brow dupe. Better for my thick brows than the boy brow actually. Thus one's on its way out and a backup is in waiting.
Aquaphoe Lip balm: Meh, it's okay. Will go back to regular Aquaphor once this is gone.
Clinique moisturizer samples, one with spf and one without. They are meh but I don't want to waste them.

Getting Rid of Most of My Flavors, Part 40

Starting flavor count: 2,497 (down from 2,972)
TASK OR TRASH - Each flavor gets assigned at least one task or it goes in the trash.


Update. I tried to make a cookie with heavy frosting (Like those Lofthouse cookies you can buy at the grocery store) out of CAP Frosting to see if it was worth hanging on to. As a single flavor, it really appealed to my inner child. But after tasting the recipe, I realized that while it did capture that mass-produced sugar bomb frosting that kids love pretty well, the recipe would have simply tasted better to me if I’d just used WF or VT buttercream frostings, or OoO Vanilla Frosting, or FLV frosting. Or even OoO Vanilla Custard Cheesecake, which makes a damn good cream cheese icing. I guess this is growing up. TRASH 1
I had hoped to push out multiple updates this week (8 recipes are mixed and steeped and just waiting for me to try them). But, another little temporary side project (more on that at a later date, perhaps) has kept my wicks wet all week.


Bavarian Cream
The least custardy Bavarian Cream. Thinner than the other Bavarian Creams, but not really thin. It’s thicker than whipped cream but not a lot thicker, and there’s some dairy to it but it’s not sour. A sweet dairy cream flavor with some kinda spicy, or vanilla beany vanilla. Touch of brown sugar lurking in the background. Maybe a little dry? Or at least, not buttery. Tastes like it doesn’t have any DAAP but it doesn’t taste butyric at all either. No eggyness or rich custardness. Think FA Cream Fresh plus vanilla. If Bavarian cream is supposed to be like vanilla custard and whipped cream had a baby, this is more like vanilla whipped cream had custard as a step-parent.
I could take it or leave it, depending on finding or not finding a recipe that uses it and looks irresistible. I’ve already got a couple of those in line for mixing. I didn’t see a third one but I do have an idea for something it might be good in, going back to that 1-2-3 Butter Pecan Pie, that came up last week, I want to see how FA Bavarian fares as a homemade whipped cream-type topping for that, so I’ll mix it again and add 2% FA Bavarian Cream TASK 1
It kinda tastes like flat Bud Light after it has been sitting out overnight, but a little sweeter, more yeasty, and even less hoppy than that. I don’t hate it, you could definitely build a beer vape out of it, but I’ll also be perfectly happy to never taste that again. TRASH 2
Bell Pepper
This flavor 100% tastes like bell pepper. It’s also ridiculously potent - I think a few drops would be enough to make an Olympic sized swimming pool taste like bell pepper. And it lingers, terribly. All over the room for days, and I thought I might have to throw away an RDA (but was eventually able to get the aroma out after multiple tries). I don’t know why I haven’t already disposed of this yet, other than flavor hoarding is a real sickness. TRASH 3
Very strong. Bittersweet, fragrant, floral, green, a little spicy, orange rindy. Tastes very accurately like the difference between Earl Grey and plain tea. No tea notes, just the difference between the two. This is dry and because of that it is not a lot of fun to vape as a single flavor, but I can see a little of it doing a lot of work in all kinds of recipes. And it does, everything from spiced teas to cereals to pastries where it’s used to rind up other oranges. Probably worth noting that it tastes so much like VT Bergamot that I don’t think any really needs to have both, except that this FA Bergamot is about four times more potent than the VT version. FA Bergamot is also used in many times more recipes than VT’s.
I already have Shameless and A Real Orange Juice on my to-try list.
I’m really interested in an aspect of this Nightsicle recipe - using Bergamot to enhance a lime, but I can’t do TFA VBIC or even the LB VIC suggested as a sub, so I’m going to mix it with my 1-2-3 VIC as a substitute for the 3% TFA VBIC. TASK 2
FA Bilberry is often used to add a level of natural-ness or fullness to more artificial blueberries and make them more well-rounded and realistic. It is a thick, full-bodied natural blueberry. FA Bilberry gets pretty gnarly over 1% or so with this sweaty sock off-note thing it has going on. On the other hand, it can be made to work higher. See Blue Eyes White Dragon. Terrific recipe, has FA Bilberry at a whopping 2.7% and doesn’t taste at all like socks to me, I think there’s some magic going on there with the peaches and INW Dragon Fruit. TASK 3
I need FA Bilberry for the aforementioned, but most of the time I think a similar flavor - Jungle Flavors Blueberry - would be an improvement over FA Bilberry (at about twice the concentration).
It gets used in several recipes I’m already planning to mix. Even though Black N Blue Suckle is more than six years old, it looks terrific to me and I can’t wait to try it. TASK 4
Reviews sold Holy Trinity Ice Cream to me. TASK 5 But I’ll also use it to test my JF Blueberry hypothesis by mixing another bottle using 1% JF Blueberry in place of the 0.5% bilberry and seeing if it’s an improvement - or if I can even tell the difference. TASK 6
Bitter Wizard
I haven’t tried it over 1% so maybe it does if you push it, but as best I can tell, it does not actually taste bitter when vaped. It really doesn’t taste like anything, just a very slight chemical taste that’s hard to describe and easy to cover up, but it does seem to neutralize some of the inherent sweetness of VG. For example, you have an 80% VG mix, that’s got some sweetness to it. Add 0.5% Bitter Wizard, it’s just as thick as an 80/20 mix, but it tastes more like a 50/50 mix. That’s why, when I made a plan to mix a plain martini back in part 38, I included 0.5% Bitter Wizard, because a martini should not be as sweet as even the 60/40 I’ve been mixing lately.
Seems like it could be very useful in tobaccos. And a must if you are crazy enough to try mixing weird savory vapes like meat, cheese, pizza, pickle, whatever.
I screwed up twice but the second screw up canceled out the first. First, I planned to throw away FLV Pear, even though I wanted to try Real Orange Juice, a recipe that uses both FLV Pear and Bitter Wizard. Oops. But then when I went black out that week’s trash on my flavor spreadsheet (and write down the location so I could then pull it and physically trash it), I missed it. Double oops. So FLV Pear is still there. And Real Orange Juice is back on the table! I’m pretty sure I didn’t forget to subtract it from the count, which is a step in by process before blacking out flavors and writing down their locations, so I’ve changed my current flavor count +1 to reflect FLV Pear’s somehow surviving my attempt to kill it. Anyway, I have a couple of things to do with Bitter Wizard already (Martini of my own creation and Real Orange Juice). To add one more, Devils Custard just to see if I can figure out why ChrisDVR once put Bitter Wizard into a custard. WHY?! He says it “creates contrast.” TASK 7
Black Cherry
Tastes like black cherry soda syrup with some cough medicine and a little hint of that awful new vinyl shower curtain off-note. Sweet, but not as sweet as the very-similar-tasting FW Black Cherry. Certainly not the worst cherry flavor out there, but not good enough for me to even bother looking at recipes that use it. TRASH 4
Black Fire
It just tastes like smoke. That’s it. Not cigarette smoke, like the smoke flavor that comes off of smoked meats. For that reason, it makes a pretty fun additive to tobaccos, but you can use it in other places, too, like Concrete’s Unpopular Opinions recipe, where he used it to help make a grilled peach flavor.
Speaking of Concrete, I need it for Feint. TASK 8
It’s also in a few things I’m going to try: Old Man Cobb, Early Autumn Pipe, and Cherry Oak Tobacco. Two more:
Maybe I’ll Catch Fire. Could be my next drinking buddy. TASK 9
Con un par. That looks like a solid, straightforward smokey tobacco mix. TASK 10
Black Pepper
Kept low it just tastes like cracked black pepper. Over 1% it starts to get a little floral. It’s top heavy and thin, which is something you probably what you want in a pepper flavor. It’s just a little starting note like adding pepper on top of something, doesn’t taste like much beyond that. With all the complaints about peppery nic you might think, why on earth would you add pepper to your vape, but it’s not peppery nic flavor. “Peppery” is just by far the most relatable way of describing bad nic and Vanilla Bean Ice Cream off-notes, but bad nic isn’t exactly legit black pepper like this. I see it mostly used with tobacco but IMO it’s being underused. It can actually make your basier fruits taste sweeter by contrast. Strawberries, peaches, chocolate. Look online you can find food recipes for strawberry shortcake with black pepper, chocolate cake and brownies with black pepper, Martha Stewart’s Black Pepper Cheesecake, South African Chocolate Pepper Cookies, and black pepper ice cream.
I’m going to try Irish Oak because I have all the ingredients for it and CBV used the notes to expose his process. TASK 11
Black Tea
Strong, very astringent, like hot black tea that’s a little over-steeped. Also a bit dry and a tiny bit dirty, not very refreshing, but gets the job done. Pushing it too high becomes more like a mouthful of unwashed dry tea leaves than tea; don’t recommend going over around 1.5% for most setups.
I can’t think of anything that uses this that I want to mix again and can’t find anything that uses it that I want to try. TRASH 5
Black Touch
Very molasses-y, warm, spicy licorice. Licorice is usually made with molasses but the ratio here is odd. More of a licorice-flavored molasses than just a licorice made with molasses. Even has that slight bitter edge of blackstrap molasses. Not the thickest, most full-bodied of flavors, but not what I’d call thin either.
Already planning to mix Black Drums of War, Licorice Berry Much, Shoggoth, Blackstrap, and Black Soda - all recipes that use both CAP Licorice and FA Black Touch.
I also need it for one of my favorite recipes, Black Custard. Licorice custard? WTF. I couldn’t resist trying this weird little 1-2-3 recipe. I really don’t get licorice from it. It’s a very sweet custard (man, that FA Marshmallow really goes well with that FA Custard Premium, should see those paired more often). The Black Touch just kind of melts into it and leaves it a dark, mysterious spice note and molasses sweetness. I love it. I also think this is a perfect recipe for people who don’t know why they own FA Black Touch because they don’t even like licorice. TASK 12
Super TRASH 6! Completely unvapeable. I think Concrete’s video that shows him burning a bottle of it with a torch should be required viewing for anyone thinking about buying this, holy shit it’s bad. It tastes like perfume like grandma would wear, also harsh and just nasty. More of a chemical weapon than a flavor.
It tastes like dark sweet grape, mostly, mixed with some bright tart raspberry-ish flavor on top, and a bit of funky ripeness to it . Maybe slightly on the dry side of things, but nothing that seems like a terrible off note to me, and not thin, has a good volume of syrupy candy body. Seems too syrupy to be super accurate, more of a really interesting candy flavor, like a partially chewed gummy candy. Can come across “jammy” in a mix. I see it used in a lot of different fruit mixes to add tarter top notes and darker sweet depth and that seems about right. Mix with blueberries, blackberries, raspberries, all kinds of stuff. Backup cherries with it, maybe. Probably the most useful blackcurrant flavor, if not the most delicious or interesting.
It’s a couple of my of my new favorite recipes: French Mornings and Deez Dragon Nuts It’s also in at least a dozen things I already plan to try, including one that’s already mixed and just waiting for me to get around to trying it.
But wait there’s more.
Blue Indigo Grape. TASK 13 Grape, Blackcurrant, Blueberry, Cold.
Razzler. Lemon-Lime, Raspberry, and Blackcurrant TASK 14
Pink Vanilla Cream. I’m digging the way both the creams combo (TFA Bavarian, INW Custard, OoO Marshmallow Vanilla, TFA Vanilla Swirl) and the fruit combo (blackcurrant, raspberry, and strawberry) look individually, looking forward to finding out how they work together. TASK 15
Raspberry Meringue PIe. It’s the WF Flapper Pie for me. TASK 17
Blood Orange
Seems like a solid option for a tasty natural not candy but plenty sweet blood orange type citrus, but I feel like I’m getting something between a blood orange and a tangerine that actually leans a little closer to tangerine than blood orange, though there is a hint of red sort of lurking in there. Mild hint of zest on top and lingering, medium body/base that can pass for fruit flesh, not really juicy, maybe juicy for FA in general but not juicy juicy. Throat hit mild for a citrus, so moderate overall.
I need it for All Day, Deez Dragon Nuts, and 1-2-3 Coco Sang. TASK 18 for mixing Coco Sang, haven’t had that in a long time.
Also 1 or 2 other things I’ve planned to try, and this Valencia Cupcake, an orange-frosted cake. TASK 19
Blueberry Juicy Ripe
Nice blueberry. Has some brighter tartness to the front end but also a nice ripe depth. They may well have put their own Bilberry out of business with this one because that mostly gets used to add some ripeness and realism to other blueberries and this one doesn’t seem to need it or to be as tricky to use as Bilberry. Probably not too bright and tart to be morphed into a cooked blueberry in a mix but tastes more like a fresh one on its own. Doesn’t quite live up to the “juicy” part of the name, though, but it’s not terribly dry either. It’s a little soft, too, and seems like it could still benefit from another blueberry layer. It doesn’t need to be any sweeter though, it’s very sweet, almost too sweet for a natural blueberry flavor but probably not for most mixes that you’d use blueberry for except maybe tobacco.
I need it for trying the aforementioned (under Blackcurrant) Blue Indigo Grape recipe and a couple of others.
Also, Toshiro TASK 20 and a similar recipe, Shoot The Blue Moon. TASK 21
And this 1-2-3 Peach Berries because I have a soft spot for these simple fruit mixes. TASK 22
Not really brandy. Not boozy at all. It’s really oddly creamy and tastes like a warm, fruity sweet cream. The fruitiness is a little like sweet white wine but also a little like a watered down unspiced nonalcoholic apple cider.
My bottle of FA Brandy is just about empty from mixing a whole bunch of Stag Night, but it’s been awhile so I’ll order some more and mix some more. TASK 23 Also want to try this Million Bucks Stag Night remix that looks even better than the original. TASK 24
Bread Crust
It tastes like puppies. No bread, just puppies. Not dogs, distinctly puppies. Like, if I blindfolded you and had you sniff a dog and a puppy, you could easily tell me which one is which. This is puppy flavor. I love puppies, but they’re outright gross to vape. This concentrate is also ridiculously potent, 0.25% is overwhelming puppy flavor, vaping it stank up my room. TRASH 7
Breakfast Cereals
I’m aware that not everyone agrees, and maybe I’m broken, but I get mostly coconut cereal. It’s not gross to me, but it is very strange. Dry toasted honey oat cereal with a bunch of coconut flakes, or in coconut milk, maybe. It’s not unpleasant at all but not something I generally look for in a cereal. However, I think if you’re mixing a cereal with milk, that coconut might disappear into the milk or cream flavor. There might be a bit of corn flake in there as well but I get more oat and coconut than corn or wheat flakes. There’s a bit of malt and some sweetness that tastes kinda like honey, more like baked-in honey rather than an added-on honey. FA Description is very weird. Flavourart calls this "the flavour of chocolate milk combined with red fruits and hazelnuts." I am getting literally none of that at 2% or 3%. I had to push it to 5% to get anything like chocolate or nuts out of it at all, at that point it starts to taste like a little bit of Nutella mixed with toasted coconut honey oat cereal. The “red fruits” thing never made any kind of appearance at all.
I’m tempted by Lemon Cake with Coconut Butter Cream and by Euler - Chocolate Coconut Pie but also feeling like I’ve been doing such a poor job of getting rid of flavors, I need to push my FOMO down deep and let this one go. TRASH 8
Otherwise an ok earthy, somewhat woody, light brown tobacco, but it has this slight green bell pepper off-note that’s really distracting, and lingers in the finish. Me no likely. TRASH 9
Tastes very slightly movie theater fake popcorn butter-ish, but mostly just tastes like butter. Thick, rich butter. Very thick, and very rich. Quite bottom-heavy. Smooth to the point of almost being greasy, like butter. Very satisfying.
I prefer VT Butter Base because sometimes with FA that fake movie popcorn butter flavor comes across in a mix and is distracting to the point of ruining it, but I think it’s a solid butter option more often than not.
It’s in a couple of recipes I already have listed, and I want to add Time Machine Cookie I’ll sub JF Cookie for FA Cookie because I already chucked FA Cookie. TASK 25
Not a super accurate butterscotch, but a tasty and useful ingredient for a caramelly brown sugar butterscotch-ish sticky sweetness.
I don’t have any favorite recipes that use it, but I probably will after I try a bunch of things already listed, plus:
Butterscotch Rippled. I can’t imagine that not being delicious butterscotch ice cream. TASK 26
Drops of Jupiter is a butterscotch pudding pie that caught my eye because of the combination of WF Buttercream Frosting, WF Flapper Pie, and VT Honeycomb. TASK 27
Even Nick Can Make Custard 2 Really interested in how that croissant and banana work in there. TASK 28
Idiot Proof, a 1-2-3 butterscotch custard that looks simply delicious. TASK 29
Jammy/Candy Wizard
Has a clear jammy sweetness and seems like it might actually work to turn fruits jammy. Very concentrated additive, perfumy at 1%, recommend 0.5% or so only.. Tastes like it has a bunch of maltol in it but isn’t just that. Also has a tart, indistinct, passionfruit juice-like, citrusy aspect with a little juicy, mouthwatering quality. Not sure if it also tastes a little strawberry-like or if I’ve just come to associate that maltol taste with strawberry flavors.
Couple of things I want to try that use it: Laces Out strawberry red laces, to see if it tops LIc Her..Ish as my favorite red licorice recipe. TASK 30
And Berry Gummies because WF Wild Berry Gummy Candy is yummy. I’ll sub CAP Super Sweet for the PUR Super Sweet I don’t have; usually I would go with FW Sweetener, but it’s candy. TASK 31
Super authentic under ripe cantaloupe - kind of rindy - stacked on top of a sweet, thick melon ring candy. Overall effect of this is not exactly unpleasant, but is kinda weird. It tastes like if that under ripe flavor can be covered up, the base would go really well in lots of melony places, especially candy.
Mango Melon Chew is a great recipe that uses it at 1% and just barely misses the mark for me to count it as something I just have to mix again. I’m already planning to try Stuck on an Island that uses it at 0.5%, but mostly mixing that for the interesting Wild Melon/Coconut pairing. Speaking of Wild Melon, I’ll give this Melon Mania II recipe a try as well. It’s got a very nice-looking combination of ingredients there along with with the Wild Melon and a little bit of FA Melon Cantaloupe -- FA Indian Mango, TFA Papaya, INW Prickly Pear. TASK 32
It’s mostly cream, with very little coffee, but I don’t want more of that coffee, because it tastes burnt and slightly skunky. It’s also harsh on top, not smooth and soothing like a cream should be, with a sweeter finish that tastes like half scalded milk and half coconut milk. No es bueno. TRASH 10

New products, what do you think?!
Hey guys! I’ve been using bareminerals skin care almost exclusively for about a year and a half but it is soooo expensive. I’ve been out for 2 weeks now so I’m using my “back up” stuff and my skin hates me. I can’t keep justifying the price tag on bare minerals anymore, as much as a love it. I’ve done quite a bit of research for my skin type and I think I’ve made some pretty good choices. For all of my sensitive/dry skin people, what do you think about this stuff?! Not pictured is my bareminerals night cream I have not run out of yet:)

2023.03.31 15:14 D491234 The Psychiatric (Psychiatry) Industry is based on the Spiritual Exercises of Ignatius Loyola

From America the Jesuit Review:
St. Ignatius, Psychology & Me
First an introduction: I am a licensed clinical psychologist and a committed Catholic with a strong interest in the ways in which the Christian faith and psychology intersect. As a contributor to In All Things, I hope to explore these ideas and respond to readers questions about my field of study.
But to begin, let me reflect a little on how St. Ignatius, psychology, (and me) fit together. The common denominator is gratitude. In the Spiritual Exercises, Ignatius brings to us this exhortation: "I will call back into my memory the gifts I have received--my creation, redemption, and other gifts particular to myself. I will ponder with deep affection how much Our Lord God has done for me, and how much he has given of me of what he possesses, and consequently how he, the same Lord, desires to give me even his very self, in accordance with his divine design." The Saint travelled from near suicidal despondency to reach this happier way of thinking, and countless Jesuits over centuries have brought the Lord to those who undertake the exercises. Finally in this 21st century, many in the profession of psychology have finally caught up with Ignatius, offering "positive therapy" or "cognitive psychology" in which we learn how to change our feelings by changing our thoughts. Of course it gets much more complicated. But here's how St. Ignatius and psychology connect for me right now. I received my Ph.D. in Clinical Psychology from Loyola University of Chicago and the skills and integrity I learned there have given me a rewarding career. While working in a treatment program in the inner city with children who endured trauma that would break most of us, I co-wrote Crisis Counseling With Children and Adolescents. As a clinician I have worked with infants, toddlers, school-agers, and adult folks of all ages. There have been other books, two decades as a peritus for annulment tribunals, an appointment as a Disability Examiner for New York State, and many continuing rewards of seeing young people in college and grad school as a professor at Marist College. When I think of topics for this blog, many thoughts emerge: how therapy and spiritual direction complement each other; canon law and spirituality in annulments; talking to children about tragedies and terrorism; Vatican II and its hopes for special education in Catholic Schools (great talks recently at NCEA Convention in Minnesota); Thomas Merton and his psychoanalysis with Dr. G. Zilboorg; mission of Psychology in Catholic universities; treatments for sexual addiction; spirituality and handicaps; God's gift of psychiatric medicines and their proper use; psychology and peace; and much more. Will I enter the child abuse fray? Maybe. There are important things that have remained unsaid, and I've had the sad decades long experience of making many abuse reports as a mandated reporter.
Also from America the Jesuit review, the Jesuits created psychoanalysis:
The shrink and the spiritual director: Freud and the Jesuits
This year marks the 80th anniversary of the death of our father among the saints of psychology, Sigmund of Vienna. That, of course, is a title Sigmund Freud would not accept, nor would Christians bestow it upon him, a man who described himself as a “godless Jew.” Freud’s atheism and his controversial views on sex too often gave many believers license to dismiss his far-reaching influence. As W. H. Auden’s poem “In Memory of Sigmund Freud” put it: “if often he was wrong and, at times, absurd,/ to us he is no more a person/ now but a whole climate of opinion/ under whom we conduct our different lives.”
Members of the Society of Jesus have been among the relatively few Catholic Christians with a discerning appreciation for Freud and his revolutionary psychoanalytic methods. Even while Freud was still alive, his ideas were being discussed in articles in America in the 1920s. After Freud’s death in London in September 1939, and down to our present day, a number of Jesuits have undergone psychoanalytic training.
Jesuits have also availed themselves of such therapeutic services, including the most prominent Jesuit alive today, the current bishop of Rome who, in 2017 revealed in an interview that as a priest he had seen a Jewish psychoanalyst in Argentina for six months—the first pope ever to admit to any kind of clinical consultation and therapeutic relationship. That Pope Francis could make such an appreciative admission reflects the latest phase in a winding journey among Jesuits, now dating back a century.
During this period there have been, to be sure, other orders within the church that engaged Freud and other Catholics who were involved in non-Freudian forms of modern psychology. The English Dominican Victor White, for example, wrote several books on Carl Jung and had a 15-year-long epistolary dialogue with him about his theories and beliefs. In 1956, the Irish Capuchin priest Peter J. R. Dempsey wrote a still-useful book, Freud, Psychoanalysis, Catholicism. Thomas Verner Moore (d. 1967), a priest who had lived as a member of the Paulist, Benedictine and Carthusian religious communities, was the first to suggest some psychological screening of candidates for the priesthood.
But among the Jesuits, psychoanalysis took root with sophistication and staying power. Four Jesuit psychoanalysts stand out. Two of them lived and worked in Europe; two practiced in the United States. Three of the four are now dead. All of them have left an impressive body of hundreds of publications in several languages, and their insights still deserve our attention.
André Godin, S.J.
In Europe, the Belgian André Godin, S.J., who was born in 1915, entered the Society in 1933 and died in 1997. He did the usual philosophical and theological studies in Europe, and then received graduate training in psychology at Fordham University in the Bronx, N.Y., in the early 1950s. After this, he moved somewhat away from Freud and into the mainstream of the modern psychology of religion. Notable publications include the five volumes of Cahiers de Psychologie Religieuse, his 1985 book The Psychological Dynamics of Religious Experience and many other writings still found in bibliographies of pastoral psychology. Father Godin also established the prestigious International Prize in the Scientific Psychology of Religion.
Emblematic of Father Godin’s approach is an essay in the journal Continuum in 1965, “Revelation and Psychotherapy,” in which he writes, “I should therefore agree to seeing in the action of the therapist a sign of God.” Unlike other analysts who have been too timid to discuss faith (his contemporary Nina Coltart in England, who died the same year as Father Godin, was a very notable exception in her thoroughly delightful book Slouching Towards Bethlehem, 1992), Godin unashamedly discussed faith and God. In assessing Freud’s 1927 book Future of an Illusion, Godin recognized (as Paul Ricoeur did in his landmark book Freud and Philosophy) how much Freud sought the destruction of idolatry and in so doing “situated the religious question in its proper place: on the side of reality, not as the fulfillment of compensatory desires; on the side of stimulation to reach maturity in opening out to the Other.”
Edward Boyd Barrett
Stateside, there were two especially noteworthy and prolific Jesuits. The first of these was the onetime Jesuit Edward Boyd Barrett, whose life has been recently studied in both Robert Kugelmann’s Psychology and Catholicism: Contested Boundaries and in Paula Kane’s chapter in Crossings and Dwellings: Restored Jesuits, Women Religious, American Experience, 1814-2014. (The details in the next two paragraphs are largely indebted to Ms. Kane, who kindly sent me a copy of her text.)
Barret was born in 1883 in Ireland, where he joined the Society in 1904. He later studied psychology and psychoanalysis, first in Belgium and then England, before returning to Ireland and publishing scholarly books and articles, including eight articles on psychological topics in America in 1923, which also accepted a further six articles from him in 1924 and 1925.
In October 1924, Barrett arrived in the United States after the Maryland-New York Province of the Jesuits agreed to take him on. America solicited a further three articles, but they were censored by Jesuit superiors in New York. Such censorship happened regularly to Barrett and other clergy writers in an era when the taint of Modernism still attached to psychoanalysis and similar disciplines. Jesuit reviewers, as Mr. Kugelmann has shown, were far from being of one mind that Barrett’s views were heterodox: some in England were willing to publish what those in Ireland or America were not, and vice versa. We also cannot discount the possibility that some of Barrett’s critics were unconsciously upset by his views on the War of Independence (1919-21) and the Civil War (1922-23) in Ireland.
After Fordham University invited Father Barrett to speak in 1925, the superior of the Maryland-New York Province censored his lecture. Barrett’s Jesuit home province in Ireland recalled him, but he refused to go. By September he was no longer a member of the Society of Jesus. Whether he left or was dismissed is not clear, according to Ms. Kane and Mr. Kugelmann, who says that “the available evidence supports both positions.”
In any event, Barrett set up what he regarded as a psychoanalytic practice in Greenwich Village in New York City, though without the new professional credentials required in the United States. In 1926, in response to an international conflict over emerging U.S. regulations restricting analysis to physicians, Freud (whose only visit to this country in 1909 led him to exclaim afterwards to his authorized biographer Ernest Jones, “Yes, America is gigantic. A gigantic mistake!”) published his waspish essay “The Question of Lay Analysis,” in which he told both priests and physicians to keep their hands off analysis. Instead, he coined a striking phrase to describe the ideal psychoanalyst as a “secular pastoral worker,” which, as it turns out, was an apt phrase for Barrett in his post-Jesuit period (during which he married, was widowed and finally became reconciled enough to the Society to die in the Jesuit infirmary in Santa Clara, Calif., in 1966.)
Barrett’s therapeutic method was a hybrid of Catholic and Freudian notions designed, it seems, to placate Jesuit and Thomist critics. He insisted on explicit efforts to retrain the patient’s will, though such practices were in clear violation of Freud’s rule that the analyst practice “abstinence” when it came to offering any sort of advice or, worse, moral exhortation. As Barrett asked, “How can analysts face the reconstructive part of their work?...The weak will of the moral degenerate has to be built up!... It is a moral and religious problem.” This attempted synthesis, which predictably displeased hardcore Catholics and clinicians alike, allowed Barrett (and others, like Karl Stern) to clear enough room in the church to make it possible for psychoanalysis (as a therapy, not a metapsychology) to be approved by Pope Pius XII in the 1950s.
Barrett succeeded in part by arguing that Freud was neither very revolutionary nor very original. He regarded certain psychoanalytic practices as originating in ancient Christian ascetical methods. This is a view of considerable merit. When teaching courses on Evagrius of Pontus, I am often struck by his methods as psychoanalytic avant la lettre. As the eminent historian Peter Brown would put it in a 1971 article on holy men of late antiquity, the monastic cells of upper Egypt had rather nicely furnished and frequently used consulting rooms.
William W. Meissner, S.J.
If some of Barrett’s confreres faulted him for blurring the boundaries between psychoanalysis and theology, the next Jesuit analyst of note took pains to be as conventional, if not conservative, as possible. If some of Barrett’s writings fulgurated polemically, then this second American Jesuit analyst was determined, it seems, to be as prolix and plodding as possible, policing the boundaries between Freud and God rather strictly. This was William W. Meissner, S.J., who was born in the United States in 1931, entered the New York Province of the Jesuits in 1951 and died in 2010. He trained at Harvard University in psychiatry and then pursued analytic training. While practicing both of these disciplines, he also taught at Boston College and wrote more than 200 articles and over 20 books.
Early books (for example, Group Dynamics in the Religious Life, from 1965, when Meissner was still training at Harvard; and The Assault on Authority: Dialogue or Dilemma? from 1971) have not aged well, being very narrowly aimed at a particular social context in the church now vanished. Some of the books from his middle period in the 1980s and 1990s were commendably cautious attempts to shed light on the psychodynamics of Ignatian spirituality. Thus, a book like Ignatius of Loyola: the Psychology of a Saint, published in 1992 by Yale, emerged from the relatively young and frequently controversial field of psychobiography. Meissner, I think, very painstakingly laid out the benefits and risks of such an approach, but some reviews, predictably, sniped at him anyway for daring to apply Freudian categories to Ignatius at all.
Father Meissner wrote two other noteworthy books. Psychoanalysis and Religious Experience (1984) has been called by Ana-Maria Rizzuto (a fellow Boston psychiatrist and analyst, still living) a classic in the field, but I think that too much. It is, like all Meissner’s books, very workmanlike and certainly a good place to start for those without any background in the field; but it contains few startling or creative insights not on offer elsewhere, including Ms. Rizzuto’s own truly groundbreaking book The Birth of the Living God (which Meissner reviewed in Theological Studies as a “truly seminal work”).
In his 2000 book Freud and Psychoanalysis, Meissner again offers a solid but limited historical introduction to Freud. But the hugely influential object-relations school in England under Melanie Klein, D. W. Winnicott, R. D. Fairbairn and Harry Guntrip—and more recently the important contemporary Anglo-American analyst Christopher Bollas—is severely downplayed while other significant figures (like Heinz Kohut) are totally ignored. For all that, however, I found the book’s last chapter both insightful and moving in shedding light on my own experience as an analysand.
In three articles rapidly published in his last two years, Meissner talked more explicitly about God, albeit more in clinical than narrowly theological terms, arguing to the end that blurring those boundaries never serves patients well. As Ms. Rizzuto would say in her memorial tribute to Meissner published in 2010, “He was first and foremost a psychoanalytic theoretician and clinician.” But for a fuller appreciation of the man, this view should be set alongside the Chicago analyst Robert Galatzer-Levy’s moving tribute to Meissner in The Therapist in Mourning: From the Faraway Nearby, published in 2013.
Carlos Domínguez-Morano, S.J.
God is front and center in our last Jesuit analyst of note. Here we return again to Europe. Unlike the other three just discussed, Carlos Dominguez-Morano, S.J., is still living and active. Born in Huelva, Spain, in 1946, he joined the Jesuits and studied philosophy and theology before going to Paris and Madrid for psychoanalytic training. Currently teaching the psychology of religion at the University of Granada, Spain, he is the author of numerous books.
Strikingly, several of his books have run through numerous editions in Spanish, a welcome reminder that while the fortunes of psychoanalysis have collapsed in the United States (as several analysts grimly confirmed to me last year when I was on a fellowship at the Chicago Psychoanalytic Institute), in much of Latin America as well as parts of both Asia and my native Canada, analysis remains a real option for people in need of deeper structural alterations in the mind beyond what is available through psychotropics or short-term counselling dictated by insurance companies. (My seven-year analysis in Canada, four times a week, was covered by the universal health care system.)
Father Morano only really entered the anglophone world last year, having previously penned such works as Psicodinámica de los Ejercicios Ignacianos (which draws on Meissner’s work), Experiencia Mística y Psicoanálisis (similar in some ways to the Jewish American analyst Michael Eigen’s book The Psychoanalytic Mystic), and Psicoanálisis y Religión: Dialogo Interminable. Sigmund Freud y Oskar Pfister (which treats the very rich 30-year correspondence and treasured friendship between Freud and the Swiss Reformed pastor Oskar Pfister, the first Christian cleric to train as an analyst). In 2018 Routledge published a translation of what is the most important and profound engagement of Freud by any Christian thinker in over half a century: Father Morano’s Belief After Freud: Religious Faith Through the Crucible of Psychoanalysis, already in its fifth edition in Spain (where it was published in 1998 as Creer Después de Freud). The book is a tour de force and deserves a wide audience among Catholics, especially those whose faith has been shaken by the on-going sexual abuse crisis.
Father Morano’s book may appear to some as a sort of manual of dubious ideas. Each of Father Morano’s many discussions—on prayer and idolatry, capitalism and money, sex and the body, and Jesus and his Father as the one relationship free from all neurotic projections and masochistic temptations—may challenge smug suburban piety. I had just started my sabbatical last year when Father Morano’s monograph landed in my lap. It totally upended my plan for a book on theology and Freud that in some ways I have been writing in my head intermittently for 20 years since undergoing a classical psychoanalysis while studying theology and thereafter regularly drawing on psychoanalytic insights in my work in ecclesiology and historiography. But I quickly came to thank God that Father Morano wrote Belief After Freud, for it is far braver than anything I would have attempted.
Father Morano did, in fact, become a major interlocutor in the book I ended up writing and publishing this year, Everything Hidden Shall Be Revealed: Ridding the Church of Abuses of Sex and Power. I draw on several of Father Morano’s refreshingly blunt and unsparing arguments, including his excoriation of members of the hierarchy whose only response to any crisis is to exhort others to pray and fast more, a deflective move masking a sinister agenda: “Religious power structures have never been indifferent to prayer and have so frequently manipulated it to their advantage…. Prayer finds in power a perfect ally and associate to help pursue certain goals.”
Perhaps the most powerful challenge in the book comes from Father Morano’s dethroning of any and all father-figures with far greater theological sophistication than anything attempted by Future of an Illusion (a jejune work Freud himself repeatedly told his friends was his “worst book—the book of an old man!”). Drawing on Lk 2:42 ff, Father Morano finds in Jesus’ relationship with Mary and Joseph the lesson that “nobody on earth can claim paternal authority.” From this story Father Morano concludes that in...
Christian community, it has to be stated... the place of the father should remain empty. Father, teacher, or director are not Christian words insofar as they are used to describe a type of interpersonal relationship inside the community. Only God can take that place.
What does such a radical counsel do to so many of our relationships in the church? How ought seminarians to regard their rector, or priests their bishop? How could a Jesuit—famously vowed to special obedience directly to the “Holy Father” of Rome—recommend such a radical reordering of terminology and relationships within the church? How would the Society and church at large operate if any of this were put into practice?
Father Morano does not answer those questions directly or concretely. Indeed, as he says in the epilogue of his book, an encounter with Freud should forever disabuse one of the “haughty pretension of having reached ‘the answer.’ Many taxing questions will remain open forever. We are, thus, invited to the healthy asceticism of renouncing total synthesis. The faith that confronts psychoanalysis learns to live and remain in the modesty of tentative formulations.”
Tentative formulations are, of course, what good analysts proffer all the time. And, strikingly, they seem to be more frequently offered during the pontificate of a man who was formed both by the Jesuits and also by his own psychoanalytic experience. As Stephen Toulmin and Albert Jonsen noted almost 30 years ago in The Abuse of Casuistry, tentative formulations are the fruits of a process going back to the Society’s first generation: early Jesuit leaders “prepared their charges to meet problems of conscience with ‘discernment’—a favourite Jesuit word.”
Some 400 years later, Edward Boyd Barrett, André Godin, William Meissner and Carlos Domínguez-Morano rightly discerned in psychoanalysis ideas and methods to help people, including the current pope, heal from not just personal trauma or pathology but also from that universal disease of idolatry which, as the Catechism of the Catholic Church reminds us, “remains a constant temptation to faith” (No. 2113). Eighty years after Freud’s death, we can marvel, as he surely would, that it fell to four Jesuit priests to advance the atheistic Jewish analyst’s iconoclastic project of challenging all of us to move (in Newman’s felicitous phrase) ex umbris et imaginibus in veritatem (“out of shadows and imaginings into the truth”).
