What are you watching? (Don't be a spoil sport - spoiler your spoilers)
We're blabbing about everything else these days, I figured I'd check in and see what people are watching when it comes to TV shows and movies!   It would be foolish to think that this thread could remain spoiler free, so let's be courteous to one another and be sure to spoiler your spoilers. If you don't know how, it's that super adorable little yellow button on the toolbar, located to the right of the bold/italic/underline/strikeout buttons.    DONT FORGET: If you happen to be the most recent post, your first sentence or two of your post will show up EVEN IF ITS IN A SPOILER. So please take care if you're going to go dropping spoiler bombs.    Anywho... I just saw the movie PHOENIX last night and it was absolutely spectacular. Like Academy Award spectacular. If you're fortunate enough have showings in your area, I cannot urge you enough to go see it.    So whatcha'll watchin' these days? What are you anxiously waiting for to start back up?

Which acne mask?
I've been considering Peter Thomas Roth Therapeutic Sulfur Mask or Origins Active Clear Improvement Charcoal Mask. Is one superior over the other? I'm not sure the benefits of sulfur versus charcoal.

Help Please! New Skin Care Routine Needed Badly.
Hi! Ok I apologize for the possible rambling ahead. I need an entire new skin care and makeup routine. For the past 3 months or so my face has gone to hell! It started with those tiny bumps on my forehead and chin area, then my pores got larger, and now I have full on breakouts on my cheeks. I don’t know if it’s hormonal or what- I have had 2 babies in the past 3 years, stopped breastfeeding completely about 7 months ago, and currently have the Mirena IUD.. Getting the IUD out isn’t really an option I’m wanting to explore yet (I am horrible at taking the pill). I was prescribed Ziana by my dermatologist- it worked for about 6 months and then I feel like it stopped working.             So right now I am using Cetaphil Oil Control Foam Wash and their Daily Facial Moisturizer. Since starting the was my face has gotten really irritated, red and dry and my breakouts haven’t changed at all. I use the Glam Glow Supermud twice a week, and that will help with the little bumps, but they always come back.. which makes me think it could be my makeup. I use Armani’s Luminous Silk Foundation and that’s about it.             I’ve been doing some research and think I know what I want to get, but I am also afraid that I will be too harsh on my skin. My face has become quite oily the past couple months whereas before it was normal/combination. This is what I’m thinking of, I can’t decide on which moisturizer would be good so any suggestions are appreciated: Skin Care- First Air Beauty Cleanser Sunday Riley Good Genes Sunday Riley Luna Sleeping Night Oil Glam Glow Supermud Gross Alpha Beta Universal Daily Peel Makeup- YSL Touche Eclat foundation   Sorry for my long post, I am clueless when it comes to anything beauty related. I really appreciate any and all help/suggestions.   Thank you!

Thoughts on YSL Touche Eclat Foundation for Acne Prone Skin?
Hi! I am looking for a new foundation and think I have decided on YSL's Touche Eclat. I apparently have pretty sensitive skin as I have tried Armani Luminous Glow, Laura Mercier's foundation and tinted moisturizer, and Smashbox Camera Ready BB Water and they all gave me either full on break outs or tiny bumps all over my forehead. Chanel's Vitalumiere Aqua was actually ok, but it didn't provide much cover.    Has anyone else with sensitive skin used YSL's foundation?    Thanks!

Skincare
Hi, I do not understand few things. I have tried few products from Sephora and a lot from Korean brands. When they are non-Korean brands they are hurting my face a lot. For example, Kate Somerville, Ole Henriksen's products, they hurt me a lot. However, when I use korean brands such as all Faceshop products, it's skin, Laneige, etc, they are a lot smoother, so I wonder why does it do this to me! And if I should be restricted to only buy from Korean brands.    thanks!

Cystic Acne Skincare???
Does anyone else have a problem with cystic acne? I don't get little bumps any more but a few large, painful spots that take FOREVER to go away. I'm 21, and never had a huge problem with acne, but this is just awful. I know that stress has a lot to do with it, but I'm sure my skincare routine could use some work.   Does this bother anyone else? Can anyone make a recommendation?

HELP with these blemishes OF STEEL?!
Can anyone help me with these frustrating little blemishes under my eyes that will NOT go away?!? I feel like I do everything right but these guys will not budge. They aren't like my usual pimples. They are much smaller, hard and raised. The spot treatments that work for me do not work on these guys. I do exfoliate once or twice a week, I charcoal mask once a week. I cleanse daily, I do not wear makeup on a typical day. What could I be doing wrong? What should I try???

Sunday Riley for Acne-prone
Hi guys!! It's been a while since i've been on beauty talk but I recently got super into Sunday Riley for some reason and have been deciding whether or not to get Luna Oil or Good Genes!  I'm comparing both and wondering which one you think would help the most for blemishes!  I started using the Good Genes every night for 3 days, broke out then realized I probably shouldn't have gone so gung ho!! So for the last five days i've been using it every second night and have seen a bit of improvement.     Any experiences or recommendations? I have samples of both to try at home

I have noticed that I suddenly broke out very bad on my chest, neck, and shoulders. I am still trying to figure out why...and I think it might be because of the seasons changing, and the weather.

Dry Acne prone skin routine!
Hi!  My skin is dry but oily on my lower forehead. I have a few acne spots and a lot of dry patches below my eyebrows, on the upper half of my chin and on my lower cheeks. This is what my routine is now. I use cetaphil to wash my face with a Clarisonic and then I use the neutrogena hydro boost gel creme. I then use a beauty blender to apply either the Too Faced Born this way Foundation or the IT cosmetics cc creme, and apply a Mac setting powder. when I take my makeup off at night I will sometimes put on Vitamin E creme or Aquaphor on my dry patches to help them go away but it doesn't do much. Any suggestions?

Hi everyone!   I've been thinking of purchasing a toner, but I have no idea what to try.  I was going to buy a Clinique toner, but a sales associate at sephora told me it would be too harsh on my skin.

HORMONAL ACNE
Hi,   I have been STRUGGLING with this issue.... for so many years already   I find that no skin care products help, as it comes from within the body.   So I am not asking for skin care help.. but rather, SUPPLEMENTS that help adjust the hormone back to a normal level.   I know all that blurb about eating right sleeping right and exercising and decreasing stress blah blah... but I need to know what SUPPLEMENT can help fight that male hormone which causes this ugly situation!! Also I know that female hormone supplement helps but it can cause weight gain so I don't want that..... plz give some suggestion???? thanks!!!!!!!!

Getting Rid of Acne Scaring / Blackheads
I suffer from the most inevitable; Acne.    I have a few pimples on my forehead, nose and chin, but most the acne on my face is scaring.  My nose, however, is infested with embedded black heads. I wash my face 3-4 times a day with Acne Dote Face Wash, I use homemade soap to cool my face (after using the acne wash, my face feels like it's burning and redness appears), I then apply coconut oil.    I have been doing this for months now and I've hardly noticed any changes. The only change I've seen is the bumpiness has gone down slightly, but that's about it.    I'm going to be starting high school in a few days, and I truly wish not to be picked on because of it. I've been picked on a lot during activities I participated in.   Do you have any suggestions how to remove the blackheads / lighten or remove acne scaring / clear up the pimples on my forehead, chin and nose?   Thanks.
