I have super dry skin that's also super sensitive. I have dry scalp and some scaly patches on my face that I've dealt with by being super gentle with my skin. First, I would recommend finding moisturizing products for sensitive skin. I highly suggest a hyaluronic acid based lotion, but you'll likely have to layer moisturizers to get what you want. It may also be helpful to use a hydrating cleanser or a good cleansing oil.

Basically, what i suggest is to try layering multiple simple products, based on what your skin needs.

What's worked for me when nothing else would:

Hada Labo Gokujyun Super Moist lotion Hyaluronic Acid Lotion. My skin requires this in the dry winter.

Ceracolla Super Moist Lotion This has ceramides that are super awesome for "unhealthy" skin.

Cremo Moisturizer This has Urea which is a mild exfoliant in small amounts... I love this stuff.

Burts Bees Sensitive Night Cream Generic night cream with ingredients that don't burn my face. It's not super moisturizing on it's own, but is great when layered.

Ceracolla Perfect Gel If your skin isn't super dry, this could work for hyaluronic acid and ceramides.

Boots Expert Sensitive hydrating serum This is super moisturizing, but breaks out my chin. It's actually the most moisturizing feeling of the bunch, but doesn't have a lot of "benefits"

Aquaphor: A thin layer overnight can make your skin feel great in the morning, and especially if you're not wearing makeup, it won't need to be washed off.

Bare minerals has a purely nourishing moisturizer which has great ingredients, except for lavender essential oil, which my skin does not like. It's in my skincare drawer for when my skin is healthy, but I'm nervous about considering using it.

Also: Bare Minerals Complexion Rescue tinted gel cream has been wonderful for my super dry skin. I apply it in the morning and do not apply powder (which never worked for me before) and it gives just enough coverage and leaves my skin looking nice. Also, I do find it quite moisturizing for a tinted moisturizer/foundation. The only issue is that it doesn't last on my chin so much, but I'm putting some in a bb cushion test out!

I am very certain that you have dehydrated skin. Not the same as dry skin, though you may have that, too. Tight feeling skin, getting very oily very quickly, redness. Oily and dry at the same time. Your moisture barrier has been compromised. This will take time and patience to repair, but believe me, it is worth it. I once had very similar skin.

Fair warning, I myself use a mostly AB routine, and my product suggestions will reflect that.

Find a simple low pH cleanser. I like this one because it's cheap, easy to find, and lasts forever. Cleanse twice daily, with tepid water.

(I am a fan of the double cleansing method when wearing foundation and/or sunscreen. You can learn more about that here.)

Then I would work on finding light hydration that doesn't break you out. I have found that my skin absolutely loves multiple layers of light hydration. And that was key to restoring my barrier. Just putting one thick heavy layer didn't work because my skin couldn't/wouldn't do anything with it. But multiple light layers was something my skin could work with.

This, this, this, this, and this are all super suggestions. Pretty simple, basic, and gentle choices. No, you don't need to go buy all of them. Try one. See how your skin likes it after several weeks. Maybe add another. Or, some people like adding multiple layers of the same product.

Then find a humectant to layer on top, to seal moisture in. This is a very popular one. This, this, this, and this are all good choices.

Once you find a routine that your skin seems to like, stick with it for a few months. Like...3 to 6 months. It won't be an immediate fix. But over time you'll start to notice less of the tight feeling, less of the dry thin skin with an oil slick on top, less redness. Only then will you be able to see what your real skin type is. Maybe you start to see more dryness or flakiness, and the oil slick goes away. Then maybe you have drier skin. Or maybe the tight and dry feeling goes away but the oiliness stays. Then maybe you have oily skin. But until you heal your moisture barrier, nothing you throw at your skin will do any good.

  1. How many times should one cleanse each day? twice

  2. After washing your face and putting on moisturizer, is it normal for your skin to still feel slightly tight and dry? no

  3. When moisturizing my face, if I use something more watery it just feels like it dries up and takes all the moisture from my skin leaving it dry. Is this supposed to be normal? no

  4. If I put on more moisturizer afterwards, the oiliness gets too much and my face turns red. When that happens should I cleanse again and put more moisturizer on? Or should I use a cloth or something similar to wipe my face instead? keep blotting sheets on hand and blot at the oiliness (no rubbing)

  5. What should I be doing if my skin turns red and irritated? this is a sign that your skin is damaged - find gentle products that restore balance

  6. If I put on sunscreen my face gets oilier but still remains dry. What should I do during times like that? again, this should get better as your skin gets stronger

  7. How many times should one be using 8~10% AHA per week? if I were you, I would stop using this, at least for several months

  8. Would you agree that dry skin is generally darker and tougher and oily skin is reddish and blotchy? no, I think those are unrelated

Hey! I have super sensitive, dry, breakout prone skin with some intense hair growth on my chin. Before I got to this routine people were asking me what was wrong and someone told me it looked like I must wear a chin strap (charming!), and now I have little to no breakouts or irritation.

I've found shaving to be the least irritating method (I'm prone to ingrowns so plucking, waxing and threading made for even bigger problems). I use a 5 blade razor that is ONLY for my face and gets switched out to be my pits/legs razor as soon as it starts getting dull at all. I'll also rinse it with alcohol after every couple of shaves, every time if I've been having skin problems (note: let it dry completely, the drying process is what kills everything).

My best tip is to shave with a super mild face wash. I really like the hada labo hydrating face wash, it's extremely mild and really thick and foamy so it makes a nice cushion for the razer (like a men's shaving soap does).

After shaving I pat my face dry and slap on some BHA - huge game changer right there. BHAs exfoliate and reduce redness and inflammation and I find them to be waaaaaay more effective and less irritating than any manual exfoliation. I really like The Ordinary's salicylic acid but it's pretty heavy duty, they recommend using it as a spot treatment (I slather my whole face with it, but my skin loves acids). If my skin has been feeling dry I'll do Cosrx's BHA power liquid, it's a milder form of BHA combined with niacinamide, a holy grail ingredient for many, it brightens skin and reduces acne (and I think it's anti-aging? I lurk on /r/asianbeauty but I don't have it all down!), though it can interact badly with some forms of vitamin c (causes flushing)

Next steps are all about hydrating and soothing. My skin breaks out from being sad and dry, and it makes any irritation or ingrowns a million times worse. I've found I get my best results from layering my products. I really like cosrx's snail serum, and right now I'm topping it with 2 moisturizers (again, very dry skin, plus it's a very dry winter where I am). First moisturizer is The Ordinary's Natural Moisturizing Factors, then Cerave in the tub.

I then top it with sunscreen, either clinique super city block, biore water essence, or cotz sensitive depending on how my skin is feeling.

Sometimes I'll wear makeup too, I've found bareminerals hydrating gel and any of dermablend's products go over my freshly shaved skin just fine (as long as I use a good makeup remover in the evening!)

Hope this helps, let me know if you have any questions :)

u/Klabrd 路 3 pointsr/SkincareAddicts

An excellent moisturizer with excellent ingredients that won't break the bank is [Cerave PM] (

Heres a good routine to start in the AM:

  • Cleanse with a gentle cleanser, doesn't need to be fancy鈥 I use one from Trader Joes.
  • Apply BHA or AHA exfoliator 鈥 do a little research on this to figure out which will address your specific skin best. (You could also wait to incorporate this step into your routine until you have found a good cleansing and moisturizing rhythm)
  • Apply Anti-Oxidant serum (optional - but good for anti-aging)
  • Apply Moisturizer
  • Apply SPF 30 or higher (some people will get a moisturizer with SPF already in it to combine steps, personally I keep them separate because it creates a better barrier for your skin and I have had milia form from using a combination sunscreen moisturizer.)


  • Get all the makeup off your face! Use wipes, makeup remover on cotton pads, etc. 鈥 whatever works for you, just get it all off.
  • Cleanse with same gentle AM cleanser.
  • Apply exfoliator.
  • Apply optional serum.
  • Apply moisturizer.

    Happy to answer any specific questions :) Good luck!
u/thatchickenisspicy 路 3 pointsr/SkincareAddicts

Hi! I suffered from oily sensitive skin problems too before! Here's the routine I followed and I noticed a big difference:

Face Wash (2 times a day): I used simple korean face washes and these worked wonders for me! You can find really cheap face washes at Marshalls/TJ Maxx or at Amazon. Here's a good brand:

Toner (2 times a day): SUPER IMPORTANT! I used alcohol free which is super important if you have sensitive skin. I highly recommend this toner I still use it to this day and my skin has calmed a lot and become so soft. You can get this on amazon or any local stores really like Sprouts or even Marshalls TJ Maxx. Link:

Moisturize (2 times a day): I know it seems weird to moisturize an oily face but trust me its needed. Sometimes your skin might be super oily since its not receiving enough moisture and thus overcompensates by producing a bunch of oil (I've heard this before I'm not a doctor though). You just can't use super creamy moisturizers. This is my go to really light moisturizer. I prefer gel moisturizers since they don't feel as heavy on my face and provide a good balance to my skin. Link:

Face Mask (once or twice a week): Since you have sensitive skin I don't recommend using Charcoal as it might be too harsh. I instead use any exfoilating (or non exfoliating) masks with tumeric. It's a great anti inflammatory perfect for sensitive skin. I use this one personally:

Again you just have to experiment with what works best for your skin. It's a difficult process but I'm sure you'll find a way. Sorry for the really long post but I hope this helps! :)

u/PimauwJiph 路 1 pointr/SkincareAddicts

Haha yeah, it doesn't have a lot of slip, so it's hard to spread it out.

What moisturizer do you use? Try to find Vanicream. It comes in a large, inexpensive pump bottle and they sell it at most drug stores. That's what I use most of the time.

I wouldn't apply the oil yet, but that would be the first thing I would add on to your routine when it's time. The fewer things you apply at first the better.

You should always wear sunscreen. The sun damages and ages everyone's skin. The most effective thing you can do to improve your skin as you age is to wear sunscreen regularly.

Sunscreens in the USA are pretty terrible due to a classification issue that makes it difficult for new sunscreen ingredients to be approved by the FDA. I use Japanese sunscreens. They sell them on Amazon, but they ship from Japan. They are non-greasy and better at protecting skin from the sun. Many of them, even the inexpensive ones, include things like hyaluronic acid. They're awesome. Some examples: here, here, here.

u/AlaskanFeesh 路 3 pointsr/SkincareAddicts

Some things that might help:

Anything that goes near your chin (hands, chinstraps, jacket collars, pillows, etc) needs to be washed regularly and thoroughly. Try to touch your face as little as possible!

A good cleanser and chemical exfoliant can help you out. Some commonly recommended products here on SCA are CeraVe's foaming cleanser and Stridex pads (the red box, not green box). Both will help keep your skin clean and remove any bacteria that are causing you problems. It is important when using an exfoliant that you use a lotion afterwards so your skin doesn't get too dry, moisturized skin feels and looks better! Another common product here is CeraVe's lotion (there's a pump kind that's thinner, and a jar kind that's thicker and creamier).

Hydrocolloid bandages are a godsend if you have any active acne! If the blemish is 'open', cut off a small portion of the bandage and put that on the offending zit after you wash and moisturize your face for the night. By the time you wake up, most (if not all) of the fluid from the acne will be absorbed into the bandage, leaving the blemish flat and less red.

I hope this information is helpful to you! Acne can be so painful and embarrassing, but it can be managed and fixed. Best of luck! :)

u/AnneWH 路 1 pointr/SkincareAddicts

I use the Dr Jart in the mornings and it really does reduce redness AND the appearance of redness at the same time. (Does that make sense? It both seems to reduce redness overtime, but it also covers any redness you have.) It wouldn't be sufficiently moisturizing for me for a nighttime moisturizer, but I love it for daytime - smooth without any shine.

I haven't tried the DE. Before you shell out for it, I would recommend trying the Neutrogena Hydro Boost Extra Dry. It MUST be the Extra Dry, because the regular one has a bunch of fragrance. It's so good and cheap. I love it. I also love Roche Posay Baume Cicaplast when my skin is irritated. I would personally buy those two over one DE product. Oh, and the Hada Labo Hyaluronic.

u/warau_meow 路 1 pointr/SkincareAddicts

My skin is kinda sensitive, and I enjoy using a variety of cleaners - but the wipes don't usually do well with my skin. My favorite for makeup is Sephora's make up remover, esp the eye make up remover liquid. I also like the face shop rice water cleanser set, because it has an oil cleanser you use with a normal soap cleaner you get a moist and smooth clean and the makeup really comes off well. I got the set based off someone's rec here actually. When I'm not wearing heavy makeup I often just use this swedish bar soap, which is very nice and doesn't irritate my skin.

u/chanbake 路 1 pointr/SkincareAddicts

If you'd like to see less redness and overall more even skin tone I recommend this toner. I've only been using it two days and it has already slightly reduced my redness. It's also alcohol free so it shouldn't be a problem for your dry skin. I got this toner off a recommendation from my best friend who also struggles with pretty intense redness and has been using Thayer's Witch Hazel for a few months now and has seen fantastic results at reducing redness and evening out skin tone.

u/strobonic 路 3 pointsr/SkincareAddicts

I use Shiseido Senka Mineral Water UV Essence.

I also avoid the sun like the plague but here's a funny anecdote. I started noticing this weird splotch on my left hand. At first I thought it was a raised oblong nickel-sized spot on my hand. Maybe it was irritated or having an allergic reaction because I swatch on that hand a lot. But then I looked closer at it and I realized, it's not raised. It's lighter than the surrounding skin, and it looks and feels smoother, which is why I thought it was swollen. That is the spot where I squeeze my sunscreen every morning before I smear it on my face. It's also the spot where I squeeze all my moisturizers before I apply them.

That was a wake up call to me that like ~2 months of extremely consistent application of products can have an actual, noticeable effect. I am very vigilant about applying sunscreen and moisturizer to my face, but I'm trying to be more vigilant now about applying it to my hands as well!

u/illumirone 路 6 pointsr/SkincareAddicts

If you want to try some things before visiting a dr/getting a prescription/maybe save some $$$.

What worked for me:

Switching to sensitive skin cleanser like Cetaphil. Be sure not to over-cleanse your face, and be gentle.

Rubbing Aloe gel all over your face - to moisturize and heal.

Staying hydrated.

Taking a multivitamin - could be lacking certain vitamins- causing an imbalance.

Consider changing your pillowcase out more often/ replacing them if they are old.

If you鈥檙e down for a few more skincare items, you can try Aztec Secret Clay Mask - Amazon mix with Apple Cider Vinegar &/or water. Try once a week.

And last but not least Rose toner- Amazon

Hope it helps :)

u/oneytwenty 路 3 pointsr/SkincareAddicts

What is the rest of your skincare routine? Exfoliating alone won't help retain moisture.

  • Check your ingredient lists. Stop using products with "bad" alcohols and keep/look for fatty alcohols鈥攅specially in your moisturizer. Fatty alcohols help your skin retain moisture. I found this article informative on types of alcohols:

  • Cleanse, Tone, Moisturize should be your minimal routine. Here's what I use:

    Cleanser: Neutrogena Oil-Free Grapefruit cleanser

    Toner: Dr. Thayer's Alcohol Free Witch Hazel - Rose Petal. My friends and I, all with different skin types and sensitivities, love it. We buy in bulk and distribute to each other. Thayers Alcohol-free Rose Petal Witch Hazel with Aloe Vera ~ 12 oz

    Moisturizer: A friend of mine gave me a spa gift pack from their trip to Iceland a few years ago. It mostly sat in my cabinet untouched until recently, when I started using the moisturizer on a whim. It has, by far, been the most effective product I have used on my skin that has retained moisture and reduced my acne. I will continue to use it until I find something comparable and more cost effective.

    The effect that moisturizer had on my skin has completely changed the way I take care of my skin and what I look for in product ingredients.

    Ultimately, your skincare routine should be catered to you and your skin. Keep an eye on ingredients and introduce new products slowly鈥攇iving yourself 1-2 weeks between introing or removing products from your routine before moving on to the next one. Give your skin time.
u/BONG_OF_JUSTICE 路 1 pointr/SkincareAddicts

I'm assuming that you're looking for a LAA Vitamin C, instead of SAP/MAP/etc? For Vitamin C serums, personally I like SkinActives', which comes in a 15% and 20% formula. I've also been trying the Timeless Vitamin C for the past few weeks and have liked it - it's theoretically a dupe for the ultra expensive SkinCeuticals Vitamin C that is most people's HG.

For AHA and BHA, my HGs are from an Asian brand, CosRx. Both the AHA and the BHA are readily found on amazon and other websites. I think they are both amazingly formulated products - effective without ripping your face off. I use both on a daily basis, after building up my tolerance to the acids, and have no issues with overexfoliation.

u/stefaniied 路 2 pointsr/SkincareAddicts

This mask!!! I tried it once and my skin looks so nice! It's from Korea but it's worth the wait + it's fun to do haha (not me)

u/Andreajunelle 路 2 pointsr/SkincareAddicts

Agreeing with the other comment, salicylic acid, and/or glycolic acid.

I would try BHA (salicylic) first - it works like a charm for me. But I have to be diligent with it - 2x/day, every single day. Stridex Pads in the red container or Clearasil Rapid Action Pads are great, inexpensive options that I currently have and use.

If after several weeks you notice no changes, try switching over to an AHA (like The Ordinary鈥檚 Glycolic Acid, mentioned here already). Hope this helps-Good luck!

u/Beautiful_Alice 路 1 pointr/SkincareAddicts

It does sound like her skin is dehydrated. Does she have any other skin issues which could cause the dehydration? For me, it was rosacea. Once I got my rosacea under control, i was eventually able to deal with the dehydration.

What sucks is that everyone's skin is different. What irritates your gf's skin will be different from what irritates my skin. I would recommend that she tries using an oil cleanser or a cream cleanser (this one she massages it into her skin and then gently removes it with a cotton round), and finds a good moisturizer before focussing on the acne. If something causes her acne to get worse, though, she should quickly stop using it. She will have to figure out what ingredients don't work for her and move on from there.

I have a list of stuff that worked for me when my skin was at it's worse. The first two were my savior, the only products that moisturized my skin and didn't burn! They're like first step moisturizers that you pat in your skin and then apply a heavier moisturizer on top. The body shop products, I just feel that I'm lucky they worked for me because the ingredient list isn't good for me (it includes some things that usually irritate my skin) but the formula worked for my skin. They might be worth a shot. I'd recommend trying the masks first.

I also use a prescription sulfur and sulfacetamide face wash that really made a difference in my skin due to my rosacea. My skin would not have got better if it wasn't for this face wash, so if she does have an underlying skin issue, she will likely have to get a doctor to help.

Also, aquaphor/vaseline could be something useful to try on a day when she's not going out. It's difficult to wash off without regular face wash, but it could help with keeping her skin moisturized.

I have the same requisites as you and I love using Elta MD over my CeraVe Moisturizing Lotion. The sunscreen is great by itself but I use rather drying ointments from my dermatologist so I've gotta use both. Hope this helps!

u/schadenfreude13 路 2 pointsr/SkincareAddicts

I had exactly the same problem! My CeraVe cream seemed to wear off after about 2 hours before feeling tight. If you want to dabble in /r/asianbeauty, try Hado Labo Hyaluronic Acid lotion - it's called a lotion but is more of a clear liquid so it goes on before moisturizer to boost the hydration.

u/cityred 路 2 pointsr/SkincareAddicts

I just bought this and it's better than any other moisturizer I've tried, because they all kind of sting a bit. It's hydrating but not oily or pore clogging. I cannot believe I am trying it so late, but better late than never!

i've posted this a few times because i had reaaaally bad, really painful back acne and i found this routine posted on r/SkincareAddiction (which has more subscribers than r/SkincareAddicts so sometimes there's already an answer there)

I use humane acne treatment on a salux cloth AFTER rinsing out conditioner, dry body well, then apply paula's choice aha lotion on my back (i use a regular lotion on the rest of my body so i don't get too dry) and then I also sleep in a clean tshirt every night. I should say that I only shower every other day so if you shower daily, maybe ease into the routine in case it could be drying.

I haven't had any back acne since implementing this routine, that's why i always respond to back acne posts lol it changed my life!!!!

u/underwateroxygen 路 2 pointsr/SkincareAddicts

yes, it will help clean out your pores. Try the stridex pads in the redbox, here, but also probably at your local drugstore

u/lafemmeakita 路 1 pointr/SkincareAddicts

Not exactly, but they're still products that they list as alternatives.

I do use the recommended CosRX Blackhead Power Liquid for the BHA, for the clay mask I use Elizavecca Milky Piggy Bubble Clay, and then for the cleanser I use Amore Pacific/Illiyoon Cleansing Oil.

I have extremely dry skin plus a ton of fine hair, so I usually follow this up with a couple of swipes with a razor (with the grain) for hair removal plus exfoliation on my cheeks/jawline/chin. You obviously don't need to do that last step, I just wanted to give a thorough response 馃檭

I'm not as familiar with oily skin. I damaged my skin by being too rough with it so it needs a lot of external support and is incredibly dry.

Skin Food by Weleda is the best thing I have found! It has a unique texture (not greasy at all), but almost sticky. Then it absorbs and works for a really long time.

u/wilsontarbuckles 路 2 pointsr/SkincareAddicts

Asalux clothis unlike any exfoliating cloth or mit i've used in the past. It simply WORKS and is very hygienic.


Yes, shaving helps! KP results because these hair follicles get grown over with skin blocking the hair from coming out. Image of what KP actually is. I find that the more i give my hair a chance to grow back the more KP I have.


Don't pick because picking increases inflammation and makes things worse.


The key to treating KP is moisture moisture moisture (and repairing your moisture barrier if it's damaged), gentle but consistent exfoliation, and reduction in inflammation.

u/amalthea5 路 1 pointr/SkincareAddicts

Exfoliation is what worked for me. I used a glycolic acid (AHA) from CoRX AHA Whitehead power liquid

And then followed that up with Goodal Waship Glacial clay mask about twice a week. Oh and whenever I use any chemical exfoliant I make sure to moisturize my skin. I only ever do the AHA at night since there is a risk of making your skin worse when exposed to sun. I moisturize at night with Goodal Moisture Barrier Cream and some sort of hydrating facial mist like Goodal Flower Infused mist. Pretty much all my stuff is Korean skin care stuff (I use a lot of goodal and cosrx. I had to do a patch test with the AHA thought because previous ones I tried made my sensitive skin hurt really badly. The Korean stuff is more gentle for me. You can always find something similar in Ulta though. I know Ulta started carrying some of the products I mentioned.

Have you heard of the Nexcare bandages?

You can get blister bandages at the drugstore, it's the same ingredient (Hydrocolloid bandages). Put this on the pimple overnight, or during the day, and it will suck all the crap out of that pimple in a few hours leaving a flat red mark. It should alleviate some of the pain, too.

Oh girl. You have my exact evil terrible skin. EXACT. I got off my AlienBlue app that won't let me comment (which I keep because "I can upvote though! which, yay?") to go to the computer and comment.

That bar soap is bad juju. Bar soap AND that specific type of bar soap. Back in my trial and error days I tried the Burts Bees tomato line. Bad. Badbad bad. Bar soap in general is drying as hell for our particular skin horrors. The lotion maaaaay be ok, but may also be bad juju. I've been on clindamyacin before also. I suppose it seemed to kiiiiiind of work. Philosophy was not only a bust but clogged my face to death. You sound like you could be me talking. Everything was basically a mess until I found what wasn't.

Then blot your face dry with a towel. If you rub or wipe with towels, it gets angry. Blot that mofo. Fresh towel AT LEAST every week (some say every day, every three days is kind of my jam)

After that: Cotton ball with Thayer's Rose Petal Witch Hazel. Has to be rose. GET THE ROSE ONE. (Cotton balls are safe for wipe-on, just not towels :)

After that: Cerave in the tub (ymmv. This is the moisturizer that did the trick for me)

Wait until that absorbs then, my RX, the one I have stuck with for years and years, a pea size amount of Tazorac.

Splash face with water. No soap.

Towel blot gently, then: Strixex in the red box

Let that dry until your face feels dry, then Cerave in the tub.

let that soak in, then Biore Watery Essence Sunscreen

re the Badescu. It is painfully not-exciting. Just a good simple cleanser. Oddly enough, except not oddly because we have devil skin, I can only use it in the summer. During the winter I cough up the funds for this

It hurts my wallet and heart each time I re-order, but no angry face. No skin hurt. THAT was the one it wasn't going to get angry about. It lasts all winter and then some (f the instructions, just use it like a regular face wash! Put it in your hands smear it on and rinse it off with shower-water)

My rule of thumb is that when I am running the heat more than the AC, it is time for SMN. When AC is more than heat, I go for the Badescu.

Edit because I just saw that it was body too. Procure a Salux towel and any sort of boring body wash that doesn't claim to do anything except being fairly moisturizing/NOT drying. My current is Neutrogena Rain Bath because '' I remembered liking it and it was there and I was like 'that works..' The Salux is where the magic is.
