Sensitive Acne Prone Skin
I recently have been having horrible flare ups and my skin is very sentimental to harsh acne treatments. I tried the Clinique acne three step solutions and it made my skin a lot worse. I currently use Fresh soy cleanser in the morning and Purity 3 in 1 cleanser at night, Lush tea tree toner, Clinique spot treatment and try out various lotions. Any recommendations that works better? I don't work well with salicylic acid cleansers

Sephora.ca
Am I going crazy or does it seem like everything is slowly becoming OOS on Sephora.ca.        Pretty much nearly the whole website looks like this on my computer.    The Burberry makeup still had lots of items in stock last night and now today all the makeup is OOS. Same with many other brands.   Any other Canadians seeing this on their Sephora too?     Accidentally posted under skincare/acne LOL oops.

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?

Best moisturizer for acne skin?
I've recently bought a Clarisonic Mia 2 and been using the acne brush and cleanser, I only use it once a night and was wondering what moisturizer I should use to help clear my acne and acne scars? I also been noticing some dryness on my forehead so I need a moisturizer that will help.

Returning product after 90 days.
Back in May I purchased the Kat Von D foundation and tried it one time. It broke me out but I figured it that time of the month so blamed it on that. So I continued to use my Makeup HD product.. Well I ran out last week and this week finally started to use the Kat Von d and even with primer and setting spray it will not look right. Its way to shiny and the color is too light on my face, plus I broke out again. So it’s been over 90 days since I purchased it, would I still be able to return it t to the store?Anyone know? thanks!!

Hair color fade out - help!
I've been coloring my hair for many years using Loreal products. Until about 6 months ago I was using a very very light shade of blonde. My natural hair color is dark blonde. In the past 6 months I've switched to a darker blonde permanent hair color (level 8 or so). The problem is that the color doesn't seem to "stick" to my hair for very long at all (like maybe a week or two). All my hair is now pretty much back to super white.   I'd like to get away from the super white blonde because it is frying my hair, I think it is aging (and who wants that?), and I'd like a more natural shade. Should I switch to a non-permanent color in dark blonde? Will I need to touch it up more often? Will it allow my natural color to grow out more w/o lightening all my hair?    I'll add that I am outside a lot in the summer, swim in chlorine (I try to use a swim cap religiously), and wash my hair about every-other-day. I don't use any special shampoos other than a purple one about 1x a week to chase away brassiness.    TIA for any suggestions!

Jeffree Starr Versus Kat Von D Liquid Lipsticks
Jeffree Starr has been posting a lot of beautiful colors in his lipstick library recently and I'm getting squirmy for want to purchase one. I'm a huge fan of the Kat Von D ones (I own 11) and was wondering who out there uses Starr's lippies? Some of the colors are quite similar (Underage Red vs. Red Rum, Posh Spice vs. Bow n' Arrow). I've done a search and can't find many swatches side by side to compare the two formulas ( esp. Underage Red and Red Rum). It's gets expensive to ship and if I don't like the color I can't return Jeffree Starr's lipstick,  have any of you purchased both? And would it be worth the money to buy both, or would I be buying dupes?

DRY SKIN!!
Okay I have a MAJOR issue. I have super dry skin, so I use moisturizing masks, super hydrating moisturizers, illuminating primers and dewy foundations. My skin looks super dewy and healthy for the first fifteen minutes. After that it goes completely matte and gross, no matter what I do! It's almost like it has dried up, or my skin ate all of the makeup. It looks ESPECIALLY gross under bronzer and under eye setting powder(which I can't skip.. Concealer creases like crazy) What do I do?

New Avene Triacneal Expert Emulsion for acne
This isn't available in the U.S. until next year, but I found it on Amazon for $27 and just ordered it. I'm really intrigued by the science behind it and I'm hoping it works well. Imabeautygeek has a story on her blog and if you're interested, I suggest reading it.      Here's part of her review:  avène triacnéal expert's anti-bacterial molecule The key to Avène TriAcnéal Expert's formula is something called Diolenyl, a devious new Trojan-horse molecule that functions like ant bait for P. acnes bacteria, the nasties that cause pimples. Avène's umbrella company Pierre Fabre designed Diolenyl to resemble skin's triglyceride lipid molecules, which contain a sugar that P. acnes bacteria sees as breakfast, lunch and dinner. Diolenyl's sugar component is similar, with a diabolical twist: when zit bacteria starts munching, it activates two agents within the molecule. One is an anti-inflammatory ingredient to protect the skin and the other hamstrings acne bacteria's ability to multiply. Sneak attack!   Ingredients:   Spoiler (Highlight to read)

Shade for Giorgio Armani foundation
Hello!   Please help...   I am using N125 for Make Up Forever HD. Is there anyway you can help me to choose a shade that will fit from Giorgio Armani Luminous silk foundation?    Also, I have a very very sensitive dry skin.... I tried a drug store brand of liquid foundation this morning. My work starts at 8am, and I noticed this summer, after 4hours, my face starts to get oily, specially in my T-zone area of my face, and I noticed my foundation starts to sink or clog into my pores, and in my forehead. Although I find Make up forever still OK with me.   So is it normal to have a oily skin during summer?   Please help me and if theres anything that you can suggest for other foundation.    Thank you, :-)   Aimeelin

Dermatitis/Acne
I used to get told all the time that I had beautiful skin.  I recently started developing red, scaly patches on the sides of my mouth (perioral) which one doctor told me was caused from drool.  The doctor gave me a cortisone/steriod cream that cleared it right up but then it came back three times worse.  I still have the red, flaky/scaley areas but now I get little whiteheads too.  My doctor prescribed me Clindamycin Topical Solution but it's only made it worse.  Any suggestions?
