Best chemical exfoliant for complicated skin
I am interested in trying a chemical exfoliant, but am not sure which would be best for me skin.  I have sensitive, acne-prone, combination skin.  Blackheads on my nose are a particular concern of mine.  I really want to find something that will clean out my pores and brighten my skin tone.  I am wary to try a chemical exfoliant because of my sensitivity, but think this is probably the best way to treat my skin outside of a dermatologist.  What would you suggest?  I'm not too concerned about price, as long as it works!

Should i use warm or cool shades?
I have warm-toned pale skin (3y03 in Pantone), warm eyes (hazel green), but really purple toned lips and, if I left my hair natural it would be salt and pepper. I dye my hair dark brown, but waver between neutral and warm tones. When I wear warm tones, i think I look good, but the second my lipstick fades, I look washed out. I have used the Bobbi Brown philosophy which is based on lip tone, but sometimes feel washed out with full makeup on. (Bobbi's makeup is very blue based, and my natural lip shade is her pink mauve.) should I just make sure I can re apply all day?

Q. Skincare Help!
Okay so I have fairly normal skin for the most part. The only problem is that I have sensitive skin and I mean HIGHLY sensitive. I'm allergic to all tree nut oils and I will break out in hives if I come in contact with any tree nut oils. I wash my face every night but I realize I feel like it's not doing a great job. I don't have cystic acne, but I feel as if there is always multiple breakouts on my face. The majority is near my forehead and nose area. Every once and a while I will get one near my chin or upper lip. I rarely break out on my cheeks. However I want a skincare system that will for the most part clear up all my acne. Any suggestions?

While I was shopping
So I know a lot of people just want to vent out their shopping experiences at makeup stores and such. Sometimes you have a funny or an infuriating tale to tell, but you hesitate to post because it might be on a thread of "Oh hey, skincare."    So let's start fresh and post our crazy experiences here, thanks to heartsmyface for giving me the idea!    I'll start with what happened today at Ulta.   I got a 20 percent discount coupon, this was my second time coming back because I was still on the fence on what to buy. Unfortunately what I really wanted wasn't there (Benfit's set of tints and balms).  I decided to go for bareminerals kit which has a lot of stuff in there AND for the first time ever, eyelashes.   I was at the line and I told the lady that was checking me out if I could go switch the box I had because I was a bit unsure about the color.. she told me "Oh yeah, this definitely looks like the wrong color." Keep in mind I had medium which is my skin tone and well, bareminerals is a bit confusing with their stuff, especially for a newbie to the brand. I asked her what she thought I should get and she suggested a tannish one.. Um. I'm not the fairest in the land, but I know my skin tone isn't cocoa, I don't know if she misunderstood me or what but I was definitely like "Oh... yeah, nevermind, I'll just take this one."    So she charged me, I handed her a 100 dollar bill, she gave me the receipt and went to go answer the phone, I don't know if they should do that but I do find it a bit rude. She came back and asked me "Oh, was there anything else you needed?" And I said "Yeah, my money back."  And believe it or not, she had forgotten. In that one minute she was away, she forgot that she in fact did not give me my 61 dollars and four cents back. LOL. She did apologize, but .. due to this, I don't think I want to go back there again. Also, Ulta staff is never friendly, one time a girl worker was being obnoxious because of my Jeffrey Campbell boots, and now when she sees me it's like she's seeing Satan.

2015 Beauty Resolutions
With 2014 drawing to a close, what resolutions (beauty related or not) have you set for 2015? For beauty related, I want to wear sunscreen on my hands everyday, drink more water, and work my retinol up to a higher concentration (hopefully prescription strength). As far as the other aspects of my life, I think that tackling my terrible tendency towards procrastination will be enough of a feat.

Will I be able to return or exchange this?
My family knows I am a beauty and skincare junkie so recently my aunt bought me the Ole Henriksen's ultimate lift gel eye cream. I've only used it a handful of time and I can already tell it's reacting poorly with my skin. I don't have a receipt since it was a gift, and I threw away the box it came in, not thinking twice about it. Would I be able to go to my local Sephora and exchange this for something else? (She told me it was indeed purchased at a Sephora. If I can exchange it, does it need to be for another eye cream or can I get anything?

So I've seen a couple of threads for specific Spring 2015 launches (MUFE 50 Shades, Nars, etc). I thought it would be cool to post any and all new collection releases/launches in the same thread. I was searching around trying to find the newest stuff and scout out my next purchases.

Q. the blush challenge -- when ruddy skin tends to dominate
Hi All, I have ruddy skin and while I can go ahead and use my own redness for blush... I do not want to do that! I use Fusion Ink -- awesome -- which rids me of most of the my ruddiness. I was wondering what color blush and brand would be a fun try for someone who has brown eyes, normally wears dark eyeshadow and liner. I have pinks.. but seriously for the most part...pretty BORING.

Fake reviews.
I get the feeling that 70% of the reviews on Sephora.com are fake-- posted by the product distrubutor. I always click on the user and see if they've reviewed other items or not.. I mean, almost every product has at least 4 stars total. That seems a little unlikely. It bothers me.... Luckily they have a great return policy so you can try things out yourself. Thoughts?

Help finding moisturizer... oily/dry patches
Hi! So I am in urgent need of a new moisturizer!  Some info: I used to say that I just have very oily skin but I now have dry patches under my lips (and a little around) (I have been using Aveeno Clear Complexion and Aveeno Daily moisturizer but they may have been causing redness so I stopped them after a month or two.) I used a Clinique Moisture Surge Extended Thirst Relief sample and now around my lips and under my eyebrow bone are flaky. All of these stung or burned in some way when I was putting them on.   I wash my face twice a day with Aveeno Clear Complexion Face Wash and use Acanya in the morning and Atralin at night for my acne.    I don't know what to do, nothing I use seems to be okay for me.  Does anyone suggest anything?? A different face wash? The dermatologist said Aveeno was a good brand but I'm not sure if it's the best for me.    (I also usually wear Sephora 8 hr Wear Perfect Cover Concealor and their Baked Face Compact Powder)   Thank you so, so much!
