Skincare Regimes! Let's talk about them!
Hello friends! I am always curious to know what people's skincare regimes are; how can a skincare fanatic not want to see what other people are using!   My skin is very strange, it is combination (very) oily, dehydrated, and acne prone along with reactive to various products.   Without further ado, here is my current skincare routine!   Morning:   Cleanse - Fresh Soy Face Cleanser Tone - FAB Facial Radiance Pads Hydratation Tone - 100% Pure Rose Water Serum - Peter Thomas Roth Viz 1000 Hydrating Serum Moisturize - Fresh Rose Hydrating Gel Eye Cream - Fresh Lotus Eye Gel Night:   Cleanse - Fresh Soy Face Cleanser Tone - FAB Facial Radiance Pads Hydratation Tone - 100% Pure Rose Water Treat - Kielhs Midnight Recovery Concentrate **  My nose is very breakout prone, so I do not apply any product to it during the day and use a prescription topical acne medication on it every night to stop the clogged pores **   Lips - Nuxe Reve de Miel Lip Balm   Specific  Days   SUNDAY Shave Exfoliate - Clinique Face Scrub (Mens line) TUESDAY Glamglow Supermud Mask WEDNESDAY Shave SATURDAY Glamglow Powermud Mask And there you have it! My wonderful, yet crazy, skincare regime!   I am EXTREMELY interested in seeing what your skincare regime is as I am new to the Advice Talks!   I definitely look forward to seeing the different combinations of products and also looking to see what other products I could potentially use!   I love Skincare! It's the best!   Michael, xo

Has anyone tried Manuka Honey?
So I was looking online and came across a few articles on Manuka Honey and how it's supposed to be really great for your skin. I was wondering if anyone has actually tried using it whether as a spot treatment, mask or face wash. And if so, how did it work for you? I bought some online and I'm still waiting for it to arrive but I was just curious if others have tried this.

Subscription box photo sharing
I've been on the Ipsy waiting list, but still look at the thread. I thought we could have a shared thread from all the subscription boxes (including non-beauty ones likes underpants and lifestyle such as Wantable and POPSugar). That way we can live vicariously through each others goodies!   (I know there are unboxing videos on YouTube, but I do not have the patience to sit through a five minute video about someone apologizing for the state of their hair. And I know there are blogs where I can see photos, but everyone usually gets different items in their boxes)

PSA: Sephora is updating their return policy
I was in Sephora today and my cashier let me know that they will be updating their return policy. I don't know whether this is Canada-only and when it will take effect.   Whenever the new policy takes effect, when you return items without a receipt you will have to do it as an exchange only. No more store credit. I asked her what happens if the sum of the items you are exchanging for does not match the original price of the item you are exchanging, and she said that it pretty much has to be a perfect straight exchange, otherwise its going to be our loss.   So, either exchange for the same sum, or for something more expensive.    I really don't understand Sephora's beef with their own gift cards (/store credit). If I'm getting store credit, of course I'm going to be spending that money on Sephora, whether it's going to be at that same moment, or in a week or two.

How to get flawless looking skin?
My skin looks fairly bad with foundation up close. I have dry, dehydrated skin that's slightly red. Foundation makes it look really dry and flaky. I can't wear blush because it just blends in with my red skin. Is there anything that I can do or buy that will make it looks flawless in a week. Doesn't have to be natural, I just want my skin to look good with foundation on. I'm fine with getting products for the long term but I'd like some stuff that will make my makeup sit right on my skin and look flawless before I go back to school.

LUV TB: Lost Unicorn for VIBRouge Traveling Box
--closed-- Box of awesome high end items and unicorns, show me yours and I'll show you mine, lol. While I’m not “ancient”, I’ve been on BeautyTalk WAY longer than I ever expected and have made some very good friends….as well as been enabled into getting WAY more makeup, lol. It is getting a bit overwhelming and as much as I like pretty things, my style is more minimalist, so I don’t reaaally need 6 or 7 jars of Guerlain meteorites etc. To help revamp/reorganize my stash as well as having some fun with the awesome friends I’ve made, I’m doing the LUV TB.    It contains lots of makeup that I love but never use, altho I couldn’t bear to part with any perfumes or majority of the skincare, so you ladies will have to make up for it along the way. Keep it classy, with high end and preferably new or lightly used things. No drugstores. Since it’s got tons of expensive items, I asked people I trust who are interested, so the box is closed. If it goes well, I may do another one next year when I've accumulated enough treasures. =P   Expand below to see the rules, taken from the awesome roxystar4 and slightly simplified:   Spoiler (Highlight to read) * Please make sure every item is in a plastic ziplock bag to prevent spills.

Collections and Wife vs Husband
The other day I had the following exchange with my husband and I thought you all might appreciate it!   Husband - (gestures towards dresser where I have about 40 bottles of perfume displayed) "Do you ever look at all those bottles lined up and think, 'I have a problem'"? Me - "No." Husband - "Huh." Me - "Do you ever look at your one bottle of cologne in the bathroom cabinet and think, 'I wish I had more variety'"? Husband - "No." Me - "Huh."   I find that this theme repeats itself often.  My husband has 5 pairs of shoes (black and brown dress shoes and 2 pairs of sneakers) where I have...  I don't know and you can't make me count.  My husband has about 5 pairs of jeans and a dozen t-shirts,  whereas I have vacuum bags of clothes under the bed to swap out seasons because they're not even close to all fitting in my closet or dressers. That man makes no sense. What about you and your SO?

Best fall lip colours? And the new Bite Matte Creme Lip Crayons shades?
I've always stuck to neutral pink/red or bold red lip shades. I'd really like to experiment a bit more with new colours this fall - darker! More plum/purple/brown tones. But I'm also a little bit nervous.    I've got fair skin (cool undertones), brown eyes (pretty dark), and brown hair with quite a bit of red in it (like a dark auburn almost).    Any suggestions? I think I'm going to pick up Givenchy Le Rouge in Violine Precieux, although I think that's a fairly safe shade to pick.    I've also been eyeing the new Bite shades - but none of the stores near me have them in stock yet has anyone had a chance to swatch them or see what they look like in person?

Is it okay to use two different glamglow masks in a single week?
Let me just start off by saying that I absolutely love all of the Glamglow masks!   However, my two most favourite masks are the Supermud Clearing Treatment and the Powermud Dualcleanse Treatment.   Can anyone let me know if this is a good routine for both masks: I feel it would be very beneficial to have a clearing treatment and a deep cleanse in one regime. I was thinking of using the Supermud every Wednesday and the Powermud every Sunday... is this a good regime or is using both masks once a week too much for the skin? Let me know! All input is greatly appreciated! Thank you in advance!   Ps, my skin type is combination oily, acne prone, and dehydrated.
