Best Skincare Products for getting Rid of Acne?
I used to have really good skin. I would only get like two pimples. Then my girlfriend broke up with me, and everything started falling apart. I've been extremely stressed. I got over ten pimples in one day. I've never felt so bad about my appearance. Foundation recommendations would be nice as well. I recently bought a really great foundation, but it is sheer and that was what I needed before but now I need something that will cover up all my pimples. Nothing too expensive. My health has been keeping me from working regularly so now I have to be much more careful with spending my money. Thanks in advance,

Moisturizer for acne prone, dry skin?
I know there's loads of posts out there but I kind of wanted one a bit more tailored to my skin and personal issues! My skin is always kind of dry in the winter, definitely not oily in the summer though, so it's normal I guess!  I recently started a topical prescription (Benzaclin) but it makes my skin super dry! It doesn't really need to be oil free (I also find they don't work as well), just something that isn't too thick (I didn't like the FAB repair cream)!    Thanks

Anyone have any experience with the Tony Moly snail gel products? I have been looking at a moisturizer and see they also(saw it at Ulta the other day) have snail gel face masks as well and I am very curious if they really work like I've been reading, or if it's just all hype. Putting snail gel on my skin, face or otherwise, kinda creeps me out but if it really works then I think I'd be willing to give it a shot...

First Time Facial Oil User
Hi!  So the first oil I tried was back in November, the Drunk Elephant Marula Oil, for my dry skin as I was purchasing a few other items from their line.  However, it broke me out in little bumps on my forehead that are only now going away (I decided to stop using it at the beginning of January)!  The next one I tried, and am still using, is the Herbivore Lapis facial oil but i'm breaking out in weird places (I started this mid-January).     My question to you guys is: How long should I trial a facial oil before ditching it?  Is there an adjustment period where my skin will go crazy (especially since the Lapis is for balancing oil)? Instead of trying it for longer or switching to a new oil I figured I would ask you knowledgeable people!    Thanks in advance

Low pH Cleansers?
Hello! Me again I'm still working on getting the best skin care routine for my skin and keep it clear, so far no such luck.  I've learned about low pH cleansers being better for your skin, acne prone specifically, so I was wondering if anybody had any recommendations?   I was looking into the Sunday Riley Ceramic Slip but apparently Silicone is bad for acne prone? If anyone has any suggestions or recommendations, even for other products in my routine, that would be stellar!

  I suffer from acne and have been wanting to invest in a good quality mask that'll do a lot more for my skin than a cheap drugstore one would. I just want to know how this mask has worked for any of you who have tried it... does it actually help with clearing acne? How often do you guys use it? How long do you keep it on?   If anyone could basically tell me about their experience with this mask I'd really appreciate it

Acne
I have acne on my forehead from using the wrong toner for my skin. I was using a toner that has alcohol in it. I went to Sephora and the lady recommended that I change the products I am using because my skin is very sensitive. She recommend I use Kate Somerville Gentle Cleanser, First Aid Beauty Radiance Pads, and a moisturizer. I also purchased a Foreo Cleansing Brush.  I have been doing this routine for a week. I like these products, but have not seen any improvement with my acne. She said the radiance pads should help clear it up. How long should I wait before I see results?   Thanks!

moisturizer/ spot corrrection
So I have been using my Retin-A because my skin was breaking out, and I was getting large cyst acne. So my acne has cleared up, mostly but now I have the dry skin, peeling, redness and some dark spots left over. What is a good moisturizer that will help with the dry skin and not cause any more acne. Also what is a good dark spot corrector or treatment to try and get my skin looking even again!! I am currently using Clinique dark spot corrector and clinique moisture surge. I feel like both are not working for me though.    Thank you

Skincare Advice?: Current Day & Nighttime Skincare Routine
Looking for feedback on my current skincare routine. I know skin is personal and what works for everyone is different, but I wanted to share mine and hear some feedback. I feel like I am using good products but am not seeing anything great happening with my skin. I still get breakouts here and there. I would love to reduce the number of breakouts I experience, improve the red/dark spots from acne marks, and even out the overall tone of my skin.   Skin Type: Combo/Acne prone (more normal now during winter, but oily in the summer). I have some hyperpigmentation from acne scarring but nothing major.      Daytime 1. Philosophy Purity or Kate Somerville Gentle Wash 2. Jurlique Rosewater Balancing Mist 3. Belif Hungarian Water Essence or Ole Henrikson Truth Serum 4. Belif Aqua Bomb   Nighttime 1. Boscia Makeup Breakup Cleansing Oil or Philosophy Purity (depending on if/how much makeup I am wearing) 2. Simple Micellar Water (If I feel I still have makeup residue) 3. Lancome Energie de Vie gel toner 4. Caudalie Vinoperfect Radiance Serum 5. Origins Night-a-mins 6. Philosophy Hope in a Jar Eye cream   Once or Twice a week in the evening...One of the following: -Kate Somerville Exfolikate or Dr Brandt PoreDermabrasion -GlamGlow Supermud Treatment -Luna Oil (when I use this, I do my usual routine but add this after toner) -Dr Gross Alpha Beta Peels (when I use this, I only wash my face, apply the peels, and moisturize with Belif Moisture Bomb)

Non Greasy Moisturizer with SPF
I am looking for a moisturizer with SPF that will not make my face look shiny and greasy after application. I have combo skin that leans towards more dry. I don't necessarily need anything that is oil control which tend to be the more matte looking moisturizers. I have tried Murad's matifying moisturizer but it makes my face look too dull.    Any recommendations would be appreciated!
