BB/CC Cream Recommendation Needed
I have combination skin - quite oily in the t-zone but definitely looking dryer under the eyes as I get older (I'm 45).  With summer coming I was hoping to find a great BB/CC cream.  I was hoping to find one with light coverage.  Currently I am wearing and loving the color match of Lancome Nude Miracle 110.  If I look at the color IQ it says I'm 1R05 (I was color matched as 1R06 but I'm not quite sure about it)  but I will no doubt get a little darker in the summer, despite my use of sunscreen.  Any advice would be greatly appreciated.  Thank you!!!

Wondering: Returning to Store after a Bad Experience
So I'm wondering if anyone's ever done this: 1) Went to Store A and had a bad experience. 2) Went to Store B and bought stuff. 3) Went back to Store A carrying the purchased products from Store B. 4) Spoke to anyone at Store A and said that they just lost out on this sale and more, then showed them your bag of products.

Acne Troubles
I have not had acne my entire life until I turned 20, now it is driving me crazy. It is not severe but I would like to get it under control. After going the dermatologist and not being able to afford $900 in prescription creams. I am looking for something to eliminate scaring and redness. I have been looking at the Dr. Dennis Gross One Step Acne Eliminating Pads and wonder if that is a good fit for me? If not what would be best?  And or what is a good face wash for me to be using?   Also in part of this problem, I have been wearing more coverup which is probably not helping the problem. I use to use Maybelline Mineral Powder cover up which I loved but it was discontinued , ever since then I have not found a cover up that works well with my face, either too heavy or not enough coverage. I am wondering which cover up would be good to cover some of these acne marks along with not being too heavy. I am leaning towards Bare Minerals, but am sure what I need or if it is good for me?    Thanks in advance!

illumask anti-acne light therapy mask
I have been having some acne troubles and I went ahead and bought the Illumask.  It was on sale at Target for $25, but I had a $5 coupon for Ulta and some points, so i went there- $30-$5= $25, plus a free travel case (bc  I def needed that, right?).   I decided to try it tonight while watching the Ravens.  My family had a great laugh about it, so hopefully they're past it, but probably not...   For those of you curious if it works, I will try to keep up documenting my 30 day journey.  I even took a few pics, although I'm soooo not comfortable showing my face in its current state.  My face has about 5 blemishes right now, chin/mouth area, two are cystic and hurt, although better than yesterday for sure.   If I forget details or you have questions, feel free to ask.     I just got finished using it.  Directions are pretty simple:  start with a clean face, put mask on like a pair of sunglasses, push button.  It lights up right away, and goes off after 15 minutes on its own.  The counter starts at 30, and counts down 1 each time you turn it on.  There is no such thing as a pause , if you stop and start, it will deduct a use from the counter.     So 30 uses, 30 days, less than a dollar a day.  I don't know if it works, but what the heck...if it were $100, I'd say no until someone else tried it first, but $25 is worth it,     My first impression is yea right, but I'm hopeful.  Fifteen minutes went by pretty quickly.  I will say, there is virtually no line of vision- I can only see if the room is lit up, and only in front of me.  Forget walking down the steps or even typing...just takes too much effort.   Day 1:  Begin.  5 blemishes- 3 on day 2 of healing.   Day 2:  5 blemishes, sorta dried out, two still raised and red, although not painful. Day 3:  So far, healing nicely.  No more pain, but now I'm fighting the dryness.  I've had to moisturize throughout the day b/c layers of skin is starting to peel, which I'll trade for pain and red.  The two cystic are raised but have subsided a little.   Day 4:  Last night- my face was dry.  I used the mask and did my skincare routine.  The bumps are still there.  They'll be around for a while.  Nothing new coming in behind it, which is a good sign. Day 5-10:  Dry around the chin/mouth area, but no new spots to write about.  YAY! Day 20:  All is clear- dryness has subsided significantly.  Just trying to reduce redness now.

Pre-emptive skincare
I am on antibiotics and birth control for acne. Which is 80-90% effective. However I have run out of insurance, and until I get new insurance I will not be able to refill them.     So I know my skin will go crazy and break out all over the place. Blackheads, pimples and cystic acne galore. So in the next month I should look into some products that I can start using before the inevitable skin freak out.     Any recommendations? Drugstore or Sephora, but not too expensive please. The only thing I am fairly intent on keeping with is my cleanser.

Purging/Irritation from new skincare regimen
I've just recently switched skin care products twice and I'm not sure what to do.   Originally I was using the Neutrogena Acne Wash system (for about 3 years). I had started using it because I was breaking out after running. The past year it's been making my skin really dry and flaky and I decided to stop using it.   I started using Bare Escentuals cleanser/serum/moisturizer and noticed I was getting bumps all over my forehead. They didn't seem like pimples, just bumps that wouldn't go away. About three weeks after that, I switched to Philosophy skincare.   Now I'm using Philosophy Purity cleanser, Renewed Hope in a Jar moisturizer, and the One Minute Microdelivery peel (only once a week, so I've only used this twice now). I've been using the Philosophy stuff for ten days, and the bumps on my forehead have gotten worse. They look like pimples now and they get very red/itchy after I wash my face and put on moisturizer. I can't tell if this is purging or irritation and I'm afraid to switch skin care again so soon.    I'm not sure what to do.

Thoughts on the NEW Sephora Pro Airbrush Blender #78 Foundation Brush?!
I picked this brush up the other day along with the new Nars foundation - after I attended a "Flawless Foundation" class at Sephora. I LOVE those classes, I can't say enough good things, besides I wish their were more, more often!! I am really enjoying the brush - it blends flawlessly, uses less product and its a serious multi-tasker!! I am able to get ready so much quicker with this brush because I don't have to get wet, its large enough to cover your face quickly, and soft enough for the eyes, etc. Has anyone else picked this brush up - or have you attended class? What do you think?! I made a demo video and review of the brush for those who want more info!!! http://youtu.be/7kaBWczCqOc

Concealer
 Does anyone know if this is true and if so what brands would be best? Hello, I saw online where this makeup site said to use different color/toned concealers for different parts of your face.

Smooth skin but red underneath- little to no pimples
In the past I had very bad pimple breakouts around my mouth and on my chin, with little acne bumps on my forehead. I knew it was from my eating habits and the amount of cover-up I used on a daily. I finally decided that I wanted to take care of the issue by starting within my body, so I started drinking lemon water and green tea throughout the day every day. My skin was getting smooth and soft but still very very red underneath. So I continue to wear cover-up (BB cream from Tarte to be exact). When I wear cover-up my skin looks good and smooth. My daily skin care routine is now washing my face with warm water and Spectro Cleansing gel for acne, then using oil-control toner by Olay, then applying my BB cream. My face doesn't get as oily as it once did now that I'm using oil control toner. After the day is over I wash off my makeup with aveeno makeup removing cleanser. When I go to bed some nights my skin is dry and almost looks flaky on my forehead so I apply Vitamin E, A and C moisturizer I got from GNC. Then in the morning I repeat my routine. I have been doing this for almost two months now and I don't get breakouts anymore, still I can't rid the red face! I am starting to get discouraged. Can someone please give me any advice? Am I over doing my routine? How often should I use toner? Should I switch my facewash? Is it something in my body causing the redness? HELP I have a wedding in 6 months!
