BeneFit Burned my Face!!!

Recommended Posts

I posted a pic on page 3

 

There is nothing remotely beautiful about this post and I was not sure where to put it here or in vents...

 

I got an eyebrow wax yesterday. Right afterwards the area under my brows looked a little red. I figured it was because I am a little pale since I have not seen the sun un a while. The girl (who was not my regular) said just put on your glasses and no one will see a thing!

 

so I get home and I have two horrible red patches under my brows and it stings!! I called the brow bar and they asked me to come back in. their jaws dropped when I went back. Considering this has never happened in the 15 years I have been getting my brows waxed, I am not using Retin-A, I do not get facials and I use very mild cleansers on my face this is UNBELIEVABLE!!!

 

Did I mention Dean & I are taking engagement photos this weekend?

 

Benefit assured me that it should be cleared up by the weekend and offered a full makeup application prior to the photo shoot. Problem is the photo session is scheduled for 8am (for lighting) and they don't open til 10. I am applying ointment and hoping for the best.

 

Has this happened to anyone else and how long did it take to heal? I am so devastated crybaby2.gif

Ice for the redness, and try to get polysporin, it tones down redness and less people are allergic to it, my dermatologist recommended it to me.

Nope, I don't take anything sad.gif

I have been using neosporin with Pain Reliever. I hate my face. Dean woke up this morning and said " you look really, really bad." I had to explain to him that was not OK to say sad.gif

That is so crazy, i think the wax was too hot! That happened to a girl i work with and she said she's been going to the same place forever. I'm sorry, i think vitamin e capsules help so it will not scar.

Oh no! What perfect timing for her to mess up too! I would just keep up with the ointment and stay out of the sun as much as you can. Keep us posted on how things go.

    • The cooking method can double the calorie content of a meal, so learn about healthy cooking without having to add extra fats, like using a steamer,  a rotisserie , a slow cooker , a pressure cooker, a grill. Once you cook your own meals, you can control the calorie content because your control the cooking method and all the ingredients. A lot of people are overweight because they keep eating food that they did not cook.
    • I have stayed at Dreams La Romana and Dreams Dominicus.  The two resorts are very different in style and decor. A few comparison points are below and fact sheets are attached for both.   Both resorts are approx 45 minutes from Punta Cana airport, close proximity to Saona Island, Catalina Island and Altos de Chavon. Top championship golf courses in the Caribbean are just minutes away including Teeth of the Dog, Dye Fore, The Links and La Estancia – all designed by world-famous Pete Dye. Restaurants are similar at both resorts.  Both offer the Explorers Club for Kids.  Dreams Dominicus  Brand new resort and in 2016 488 rooms (however additional construction was underway) More contemporary style & decor Good beach area Rooms were very nice Preferred Club located in main lobby and adjacent to main pool & beach front Food was good Center plaza area with nighttime entertainment Main lobby is small, but outdoor bar off lobby is nice Dreams La Romana Originally built in 2003 & opened as Dreams La Romana in 2008 756 rooms Recently renovated and new preferred club adults only lounge & pool added  Rooms are more traditional Caribbean decor Grounds are very lush and tropical Good beach area food was good    Dreams Dominicus fact sheet.pdf Dreams La Romana fact sheet.pdf
    • My sister has done it but with the destination wedding, only super close family members and friends came since it was expensive and farther. It was great though.
