I have super dry, sensitive, pre-maturely aging, and acne prone skin (worst of all worlds). I'm trying really hard to get my skin to adjust to retinol, but it's not having it. My derm says getting my skin to tolerate retinol will solve a lot of my aging + acne woes. I tried retin-a and my skin was burn for weeks after 1-2 uses of just a pea sized amount on dry skin. I just started using First Aid Beauty's retinol serum (made for sensitive skin), but my skin is still freaking out. I have two questions: 1. Is it ok to apply retinol over irritated skin (from the retinol) until it adjusts? or do I have to wait until my skin heals, and then try again? If I do wait, it's like waiting 10 days in between uses. 2. Any suggestions on how to calm the irritation? Both the next day, and maybe something to layer it with when I use it at night? Thank you! Edit
Often people ask for recommendations on a skincare routine or for specific products/combinations. This might be a place to share your everyday skincare, both AM and PM. A skincare "what are you wearing" as it were. Hope this is useful. *Age - 40 Skin type - oily/combination Current skin condition - quite dehydrated (winter/indoor heating)* 01/17/16 - AM skincare in the order I used 1. Nude Jelly cleanser (love) 2. Pixi Glow tonic (5% glycolic toner - love) 3. Omorovicza Queen of Hungary Spritz (sample) 4. Radical Skincare Youth Infusion serum - hydrating and anti-ageing (new to me. Testing) 5. Bobbi Brown Hydrating Eye Cream (like) 6. Elemis Pro-Collagen Marine cream (really like as an AM moisturizer) I will try to post PM skincare tonight so the post can be comprehensive. General comments - Okay skin. Apparently the age between 38-42 is a transformational time in hormones (dehydrated skin/spots), so I am more aware of how my skin performs/reacts . My skincare definitely has more "actives" now than before.

Hello My cousin really loves how I do makeup and wants me to do hers for her wedding. I am good at makeup but I am no makeup artist. I did a practice run on her and it turned out fine. What do you recommend to make this really look like a professional did it.
Welcome back to the deal sharing fun! Deals shared here may also be posted to my blog (same name as the thread) unless you write for BT only. If I share your deal, I will always thank you here. I will heart every deal I see (without an outside or cheat link) to acknowledge it. Beautytalk (the forum) does not allow outside links. A heart with no comment means I already have the deal or am deciding not to list it. Please list the retailer (without the link or cheat link; dot com) if it is not mentioned in the picture. Mods come in more often when they see any type of link. Thanks for sharing (original deals and repeats are welcome)! Please also share any deal haul you want, especially mystery gifts. Discussion is encouraged. A lot of questions come with certain deals or retailers. When I see questions I can answer, I will respond (unless the poster consistently ignores me or someone else already answered the complete question). I read all the main posts (so no need to tag me). If you're replying to a post that is not near the top of the thread and want me or a specific person to see it, please tag us. If you're posting about something on sale at Sephora, please share it here: http://community.sephora.com/t5/Hauls/Sephora-Sales-Section-Get-it-Now/m-p/2122832#M44949 I thought I edited this to leave a message here, but after reading some private messages, I realize it did not take. This time, I will make sure it does before I sign off. Instead of waiting until I can return to reading every message to return at all, I will just pop in on certain days. I hope everyone is doing well. For me, some days are better than others.
This thread will be for Ulta GWPs only. Share ulta promos here. 4/15/17: Please do NOT post requests for the spreadsheet in this thread. Please post requests for the Ulta GWP google spread sheet in this thread: http://community.sephora.com/t5/Off-Topic/Ulta-GWP-Google-Spreadsheet-Request-Thread/m-p/2753063#M11... Let's keep this thread on topic! ********************************************************* Since a lot of information is being removed from this thread, try to help each other out and add product id numbers and sku numbers so people can search for items on ulta. *****Just to clarify, there is an item number that Ulta lists on the website, right under the picture of the item. The product id is the number given to the item in the URL. So Ulta's site follows this formula of having the url and then the very last part of the url is "productId=xlsImpprod" followed by an 8 digit number. If you use that "productId" number you can get to the page of any item on ulta. It's not a search, but a direct link to the page.*****
I don't think we have one of these yet... But, if I'm wrong, please do correct me. I've been wanting to make this thread for a while now, but as it usually is... Life got and gets in the way. But, better late than never, huh? I've been enjoying many natural skincare products for the last 15 years or so, on and off ( mainly facial oils and balms, but masks, treatments, and body oils and balms, as well. ) I even used to make my own for years ( years ago ) as good natural skincare products were not a very easy thing to obtain. You'd have to try and hunt down quality ingredients and make stuff yourself most of the time. And, that was quite a task! It makes me happy to see that there is so many wonderful products widely and easily available lately. It makes things so much easier! Natural skincare performs better for me personally. I love and enjoy using it. My skin adores it. I love the idea of it and behind it. So, I wanted to make a place for us natural skincare lovers to talk about anything natural skincare as I see there are many others out there that are interested, or already in love with it, as well. So why not have our own little place on here? So we can share our experiences ( good and/or bad ), loves, favorite products, favorite brands and their news/new launches, discus things, share our daily routines, talk DIYs if anyone is into that, why not? Anything really. By "natural" skincare here I'm talking about skincare made mostly or completely of ingredients available in nature, like plant-derived ingredients, minerals... You know, the whole nine. Anyway - feel free to join in! You don't have to be a natural skincare lover exclusively. Everybody's welcomed! A word of caution ... For those who are new to natural skincare, proceed with caution. Inform and educate yourself really well on everything you are interested in trying and putting on your skin. Natural does not mean it won't hurt you! And, it certainly doesn't mean it's safe. Some natural ingredients can be irritating for some people. Go with what's good for you, don't force anything on your skin just because someone said it is good. Do patch tests. Be smart. People prone to allergies should pay careful attention to what they use on their skin. P.S. I am not completely and 100% natural, nor I imagine I ever will be as I do love me some other stuff, as well. But mostly, yes.

Hi everyone! So I have the most challenging skin EVER. I'll call it combination, with particularly large/often clogged pores around my T-zone and along my cheekbones. I also have super sensitive skin, so my very fair face is usually pretty red. I'm looking for a quality primer. I had the best look with Smashbox's purple pore filling one, but it left me with more blackheads than before I started using it. I switched to the green color correcting one and haven't had as many issues, but it also doesn't blur my pores as well. Anyone have similar issues and more luck with another primer? I'm open to all suggestions!
For those who don't know what this is, it stands for Korean Beauty! Honestly, I'm surprised I don't see even more stuff posted about K-Beauty as it seems to be taking over right now. I hear nothing but good things about their skincare, makeup, etc! I recently got the Amorepacific cream as a 100 point perk and am really liking it for daytime moisture (although I think it may be better in the summer as I still feel a tad dry), and I hear good things about the Chosungah22 products which Sephora carries! I also recently made a giant order through a Korean retailer called Jolse, can't wait to get my stuff! Do you guys love K-Beauty? Do you have any reviews of stuff you've tried? I'm hoping to get this moving and that people will post in here regularly about skincare and cosmetics from Korea!

I was lucky to be selected to receive some new products to try courtesy of Nudestix, Elizabeth and James, Kora Organics, and Sephora. I am very appreciative of this generous gift! The products include: Nudestix #BABEBOSS Faves Box, a limited edition box that has six pencils in matte, cream, and gel formulas handpicked by Nudestix co-founders Ally and Taylor, in addition to some of the brand's favorite beauty influencers.

Nirvana Rose Dry Shampoo Review: (added 5/10) Spoiler (Highlight to read) I was quite impressed! This fragrance with notes of Rose de Mai, Geranium, and Vetiver is lovely. The mist was fine, and left no weird white residue in my medium brunette hair. I wash my hair every other day, and the slight oil in my hair was eliminated by the product. It did also give some volume at the roots without feeling heavy which is great, as I don't like the feeling of a lot of product in my hair. The fragrance is subtle to moderate in strength, without being overpowering. I was excited to try the Nirvana Rose scent first, because I have not smelled it before. I was quite impressed!

Kora Organics Noni Glow Face Oil, described as a luxurious, powerful yet delicate treatment oil for the face and neck. It has antioxidant and essential fatty acid rich oils to smooth, nourish and brighten the skin. Kora Organics is founded by Miranda Kerr. Initial Review of the Kora Organics Noni Glow Face Oil: (added 5/11) Spoiler (Highlight to read) Initial thoughts on the Kora Organics Noni Glow Face Oil: It has a sweet, yet pleasant fragrance I would describe as fruity/rose. The scent is quite strong and lingered on my skin for several hours after application. I have sensitive, combo skin with dry cheeks and an oily nose and forehead. On the box it says the oil is suitable for all skin types. My skin has not reacted or broken out, and the dryness in my cheeks already feels improved by the oil. Here is a photo of the ingredients for anyone curious about it. I will report back again in a few days as I continue to use the product.

I love seeing other peoples empties! So I decided to make a board where people could post pictures of their empties, or just tell us about them! I'd also be interested in knowing whether you're repurchasing anything or not.
Posting all products that you see new on Sephora (though sometimes elsewhere as well). I will heart all posts of something new. Since the Spring collections are what is showing up, I started a new thread. I might duplicate a few items from the past thread, sorry if I don't tag those who posted, but I don't want to cross tag just to note that you posted (and thanks for posting!!!).
Hi! I haven't seen a current thread about CP and was wondering if there were any fans here! I know its not High End, but the quality is great and I love my growing collection and would love to see anyone elses
Do you have a box full of perfume vials and/or a vanity covered in perfume bottles? Are you the Goldilocks of perfume, just looking for the perfect signature scent? Do you want an opportunity to post daily about how your perfume of the day smells oaky and smoky with hints of blackberry and currant, like a cigar in a whisky barrel rolling through a Mediterranean orchard on a breezy summer morning? If you answered yes to any of the above, or you just want to hop on board for the ride, join us for a 31 days of perfume challenge starting January 1st ! Some of us from the 25 days of lipstick challenge wanted to continue the fun and exploration, and since many of us have so many perfume samples, we thought this challenge would be perfect. If you don't have 31 perfumes or hate everything that doesn't smell like Meyer lemons and fresh goat cream, that's fine--we're just aiming to use the neglected perfumes we have laying around and incorporate them into our perfume rotations. And if you want more perfume vials, there's no better time than now to take a peek at Sephora's samples section. Edit: Anyone can join in at anytime! We're here to support, live vicariously through, and encourage everyone in their olfactory adventures!
