Why won't my lips stop peeling!!?
It's so annoying. I have used every lip product out there from Bite's and Fresh's scrubs, to Sephora's $6 balm to Amore Pacific's $42 balm, Fresh lip serum and every product in between and nothing helps. NOTHING. Spring, summer, fall and winter, it's not even seasonal. Vaseline even, nothing works.    When I'm not wearing balms I'm wearing moisturizing lipsticks.    I just don't get it. I don't think there is anything else for me to try.    Anyone else suffer from this and have you found a solution? It's been years and years for me of trying everything.

Just call me BT-Claus (And the Best Beauty Tips)
So, I have lots and lots of deluxe samples and foils. Good ones, too (La Mer, Guerlain, Dior...), but my stash is becoming an unmanageable space-hog. I want them out of my house and into the hands of BTers who will use them. I also want to show all of you my gratitude for maintaining such a positive community!   So, I've decided to play BT-Claus, and offer them to all of you-- no strings attached. Not a TSB, not a trade, not even a pay it forward situation (unless you were so inclined, of course). I am giving them away, with postage to either the US or Canada paid by me (sorry, BTers living in the rest of the world).   Here's the deal: I'm going to assemble ten to fifteen boxes full of samples, and from this thread, I'm going to choose random* people to PM for an address. I'll be choosing anytime between now and Sunday (21 December 2014). You should expect to hear from me no later than Sunday evening (say, 7pm EST).  Note: you must be over 18 (sorry, younguns!). I'll ship boxes on Monday, and viola!-- you could be the proud recipient of an unexpected holiday gift!   To avoid confusion, please only post if you are interested in receiving a box, or specify your disinterest within your post. The discussion topic is: what is the best beauty/skincare tip you have been taught, or what beauty/skincare tip would you tell everyone about, if you could?   *As these are my personal items and my own money for postage, I hope it is okay with all of you that I choose how I will decide who receives a box, whether it be by random generator or just by my own whim.     Here are some pics of but a portion of what I'll be giving away!   Spoiler (Highlight to read) Spoiler (Highlight to read) Spoiler (Highlight to read) Spoiler (Highlight to read) Spoiler (Highlight to read) Spoiler (Highlight to read) Spoiler (Highlight to read) Spoiler (Highlight to read) Spoiler (Highlight to read) Spoiler (Highlight to read) Spoiler (Highlight to read)

How long do you give a skincare system to work?
My skin and acne history:  Combination/leaning more towards oily skin. My forehead and nose get oilier than my chin, though. My cheeks are probably oilier than most people with combination skin, however they don't feel half as oily as my T-zone yet still get the most whiteheads! (In both quantity and in size) I already have noticeable icepick scars on both cheeks from when I had horrible acne at age 14-15 and tried drugstore products to Murad to topical creams (clindamycin and retoinoid creams) and finally doxycycline from the dermatologist. After I had to stop taking that, my skin stayed clear save for the ocassional pimple or two. I started taking birth control in May 2013, but stopped this past August. Current **bleep**storm:  Fast forward to my 20th birthday present: random breakout (have not changed a thing about my routine - which I should probably mention I have been and almost always use drugstore products, Clearasil face wash, Neutrogena toner and moisturizer, and was using 100% tea tree oil for spots but that had recently lost it's effectiveness on my skin) Then all of a sudden a random, really bad, angry red breakout that started about 3 weeks ago. Small, but very red pimples on both of my temples/hairline and large, painful pimples mostly on my right cheek. Had an under-the-skin-er on my chin and a lot of small whiteheads on my chin. I started using Michael Todd True Organics Acne/Oily skin regime on the 4th of this month and my skin has just started to clear up, however I have used KS Eradikate twice this week and have been drinking a lot more water. My hypochondriatic questions:   Number 1 suspicion on my breakout: happened right after the end of being 4 months birth control free. Maybe it took that long for my body to complete rid itself the false hormones from the BC and this is how my skin truly is? Number 2 suspicion is I used the charcoal mask (2 times) and kaolin clay mask (3 times) all in one week in a feeble attempt to attack my breakout, which I now know could have been the reason why it didn't make my face any clearer. (Something about how it can pull up all impurities and your face gets worse before it gets better?) then got a new breakout on my cheek a little over a week ago. I haven't used the mask or scrub in 6 days. Number 3 suspicion is I just haven't given the regime enough time to work yet.   I did get fed up after leaving enorgmous white heads alone with just cleanser, toner, serum and moisturizor  for awhile without seeing any improvement and I popped them last week (I know I shouldn't have urgh!) now I've been using Clinique's spot treatment (salicilyic acid) on all pimples and used Eradikate twice. The weird looking pimples on my forehead/hairline area have faded away, but the still red remains (one even is a flat bump) on my cheeks. I'm in fear or gaining fresh acne scars and want to know if I should keep giving this regime a chance to work..angry at myself for believing the hype of MTTO after realizing how much advertisement from youtubers and reviews they sponsor. Sorry for the lengthy post, you have a special place in my heart for actually reading all of it. Will probably post a picture for some advice about what kind of pimples I have (I have been reading the posts here and was happy to find most of you are more knowledgable than dermatologists I've been to!) Thank you!

How the heck do you keep track of things on BT?
Okay, we all know there's room for improvement in the features department of BT. So given that none of us actually have the power to change anything, how do you keep track of things? I used to think I was just too much of a newb to understand the ins and outs of BT, but now that I've been here for a while, I realize that nothing has really changed and it still feels like a bit of a clusterF to keep track of responses and comments/mentions intended for a specific user.     Do you subscribe to threads? Do you track responses to your own posts through your list of activity in your profile? Do you just rely on PMs?    What's your method to the madness?

My First Impressions of GlamGlow's Thirsty Cleanse
I received my samples from GlamGlow yesterday and was really itching to try the cleanser. I just used the Thirsty Cleanse so I wanted to share what I think.    First of all I must say that I absolutely HATE the Thirsty Mud Mask. I cannot stand the smell. This cleanser doesn't small as strong (and since I only had it on for a short time and than washed it off that makes a difference).   The way you use this cleanser is that you apply it directly to your dry face, massage it in, and add a bit of water for it to emulsify. You massage that it and than wash your face completely. I don't really like some of the cleansers out there that have this method because I feel like I have to rub my face raw to get it to turn the way it's supposed to. But this one is much faster. It works very quickly.    After I washed it off my skin does feel very refreshed and hydrated. I actually really like the way it feels and I bet after using this sample I would totally buy the full size. I can't give a true "review" since this was just a 1 foil sample I was sent (they also sent me 1 packet of Super Cleanse but I will pass that to a friend).    I just thought I'd share my humble first thoughts on this product

What if your Best Beauty find of 2014!?
 (apparently I can not spell today..) This year has been very purchase heavy for me, some of the things were great, others not so much. So since the year is almost over lets do a round up on "What was your THE best beauty(skincare, clothing, etc.) find/discovery of the year?".   IF you had BIG misses and no so great finds - go ahead and share them too!    My great discoveries were: - Chanel Aqua Vitalumiere - after being on a hunt for a good foundation, and then while in Nordies stumbling on Chanel counter and lovely associate helping me out with a perfect shade match and coverage - I fell in love with this one!!! - Skincare wise I think Algenist was my discovery - they have such a great skin care line, I love their firming cream and oil!! - After such a craze about Bite beauty , and finally my local stores having the items on display, I caved and decided to see what they were about  - now I am a proud owner of about 10 of their lip products - Then I just have to mention finding the GLAMGLOW masks at my fave TJMAxx - that was an amazing deal!!!

Z-palettes Unite! De-cluttering begin!
  Sooooofinally jumped on the Z-palette wagon and I'm definitely not regretting it, in part due to the fact I did not shatter a single shadow , I did not like most of the patterns and I found someone on etsy who makes them (PM for the store name) and they are great quality! I depotted: -Smashbox brown eyes -Too Faced Natural at Night & Boudoir Eyes -Naked Two & Three, and Naked Basics -Kat Von Dee Saint & True Love -Mac Nylon & someother one (not a big mac fan) -Sona Kushick brown eyes 10 I feel like I need some more non-naturals in my life now! But it was so easy to pick and choose my eyeshadow today! No searching through so many palettes.    So I got a double sided z-palette and then a travel palette that is also double sided. The store I bought from also had two other larger sides but I didn't think I had enough eyeshadows to depot to need ones larger!  Let me know your guys opinion and if you have taken to jump over to the z-palettes!

Tom Ford Lips & Boys
SO EXCITED!!    11/28/14, they are coming out with 50 LE miniature lipsticks, selling at $32 each. I need them all.   A snippet from an article about them:   " In the Lips & Boys lineup, there are 10 shade ranges, encompassing nude browns, violets and plums, metallics, reds and light pinks. The high-pigment shades are done in a base of soja seed extract, Brazilian murumuru butter and chamomile flower oil. Thirty-six offerings are new shades; 10 are from Velvet Suede, Ford’s current seasonal color story, and four are from previous seasons. Ford predicted bestsellers will include Tomas, a coral hue; Matthew, a coral pink; Flynn, a light pink; Giacomo, a deep rose, and Patrick, a muted coral pink. Each clutch-size lipstick will retail for $32. The lipsticks can also be packaged in sets of any three hues in the collection."

Can anyone duplicate this Carven rollerball issue?
I called the Rouge line and she couldn't get this screen to come up. It's under just the parfum rollerball, not the big parfum category where you can select sizes. I can see why there are only a few left if you're buying a 0.33 oz eau de parfum rollerball but instead getting a large eau de toilette, after shave balm and deodorant for $25.   Would you want your significant other to smell like Carven parfum? I haven't smelled it, but it definitely sounds floral.

Best Everyday Mascara?
So I'm on the hunt for the perfect everyday mascara! I'm currently using Too Faced Better Than False Lashes and while I absolutely adore it, I'm finding it a bit too much for everyday use and think it's probably better suited for evening/weekend wear.   In the past I've used Benefit's BadGal and They're Real, Diorshow Iconic Overcurl, Lancome's Hypnose Drama and Definicils, Diorshow, and a multitude of drug store mascaras.   I got a sample of Bobbi Brown's Smoky Eye Mascara with my last order and so far I'm absolutely loving it, but was hoping ya'll could throw some other suggestions my way.

What's wrong with my Naked 2 palette?
okay so I bought my naked 2 palette about a week ago and i'm kinda new to eyeshadow so please don't judge me if this question is really dumb haha.  but there is something weird about the pigmentation in my palette, because some of the colours aren't as pigmented as I thought they would be. for example, verve hardly shows up even when i swatch it with my finger. however, i went to sephora and swatched their palette really lightly on verve and it was REALLY pigmented.  does it get more pigmented as you use it more because of the layers? or does it have to do with something else (like how many people touched it etc.)? or is mine just defected... this is actually really worrying so please help!

Advice; service issue escalated twice but district manager ignoring it
So I had the worst retail experience of my life at a local sephora now almost 2 months ago.  I have complained multiple times to the Rouge line (which has escalated it twice to the district manager), posted on BT and filled out the online survey.  No response.  Basically the district manager is choosing to ignore it. In short, a Store Director was rude to me and her new employee.  She gave me a very hard time about a return of a recently purchased item, unused and with receipt (rude from the moment she walked up to show a new employee how to do a return).  My credit card had been stolen two days before so she said Sephora wouldn't take it back.  I insisted.  She persisted, being argumentative and accusatory.  I insisted, explaining Sephora policy to her calmly.  I also bit my tongue for the ten minutes the return took then at the end pointed out that she could have called the credit card company to verity the account (I've since learned that returns go through on re-issued cards, only sales don't).  She told me "I had to" lower my tone.  It wasn't raised but it wasn't friendly. I told her that I don't have to do anything (she has apparently never heard of please or even common courtesy) then she kicked me out of the store. Her new employee…was apologizing the whole time and quite upset. And the district managers response has been to basically not respond, even though the issue has been repeatedly escalated. I plan to keep calling, posting complaints etc.  Any other thoughts or advice?  I am still, months later, so mad at how badly this store manager behaved.  Even a little courtesy would have made all the difference. Practical results?  I skipped the KVD interstellar and MUFE 50 shades, getting a Chanel highlighter (Macy's) and 4 TF Lips and Boys (Neimans) instead.  I was going to get the Pantone palette and blush (I already ordered the lipstick) but might get the Guerlain or Chanel spring stuff (Nordstrom) instead. Thanks for listening and advice. Once and a while we get mad enough to persist.  This situation was seriously by far the worst retail experience I've ever had.  And I was dressed nicely, being on my way to a formal dinner.
