Hey y'all because I got amazing answers on here before I have decided to come back and ask another question. What is the best way to remover those nasty blackheads that are on your nose and chin area?? I have little tiny blackhead on my nose/cheek/chin area that I cant seem to get rid of. I do a glamglow mud mask like once a week and use face wash every day and night. Help I am stuck and I am really tired of looking in the mirror and seeing blackheads all the time, its like you can play connect the dots on my nose and its pretty gross. Any advice is appreciated
Hi! I'm 25 years old, Asian American (Vietnamese specifically). History of my skin: I had to get on Accutane by 6th grade.... anyways, skin was mostly clear throughout until college when I went off of BC at ~19 years old. Skin went crazy, now it is still crazy at 25. Here are products I've been using: PURPOSE Gentle Cleanser First Aid Beauty Facial Moisturizer NARS Sheer Glow in Santa Fe Occasionally NARS translucent powder SO, now being summer I need something darker than Santa Fe..and something better at controlling oil. Because 2-3 hours after putting on my makeup, my face is a grease ball. I tried the NARS LUMINOUS (also in Santa Fe) which was absolutely 110% gorgeous. Coverage was amazing. Didn't need concealer like with Sheer Glow. EXCEPT the staying power for Luminous was terrible. Ok here's the thing...when I jumped in the pool it stayed relatively well. But when my greasy face got greasy... the foundation just turned into pools. See attached photo...can you see the foundation slipping off? It was especially gross if I itched my face and all the foundation ended up underneath my nails... Anyways, staying power sucked AND on top of that, it would make me break out!! Just what I need to add to my problems! So now I need some help and suggestions! I have lots of acne scarring/pigmentation, redness, and a few breakouts all over (mostly chin/jaw... now spreading to my cheeks but I thikn that's because of the Luminous). HELP!!!!!!!!!!

I just wanted to take a moment to send my praises to JCP Sephora in Little Rock! Had an awesome experience today! I was in a rush to pick up some Murad Clarifying Wipes on my lunch break. I was treated wonderfully and had a great time engaging in casual conversation with the cast members. I told them I was leaving for a beach vacay and asked for samples at checkout. The lady surprised me with a TON of samples, mostly geared towards SPF protection! Just check out all my goodies! I mostly purchase online, but that will definitely change! Thank you so much, JCP Sephora!!!
My skin is a constant stressor for me....Oily/Acne Prone/Large Pores/Sensitive...As far as makeup, I am currently using Clinique concealer, Hourglass Foundation & Clinique stay matte sheer pressed powder just to touch up if needed. I have tried so many different kinds of foundation.... -Clinique Acne Foundation -Hourglass Foundation (seems okay) -Tarte Amazonian Clay -Makeup Forever HD -Physicians Formula -Clinique Even Better Foundation ......just to name a few I have also tried some from Origins & Aveda which seem to have no coverage and instantly melt off my face. I need something with good coverage that doesn't make me look greasy!!! As far as a cleansing routine, I use Clinique liquid soap in the morning, Clinique Clarifying Lotion, Clinique Stay-Matte Hydrator Moisturizer. To remove makeup, I use the Clinique Rinse-Off Foaming Cleanser. then wash with the Clinique liquid soap. I also have a Clarisonic but I don't use that all the time. I prefer more gentle cleansers versus acne specific cleansers/lotions/etc. because those seem to irritate my skin. I have done Accutane (more than once), seen multiple dermatologists; however, I still haven't found a solution. At this point, I don't care about costs as long as I can find something that works. Trying things then having to take them back is a constant pain. I am thinking I need to try a different cleansing regiment as well as look into different makeup options...any suggestions would be greatly appreciated....
Hey there everyone! I'm going to try and include as much as I can so you guys can help me out, I'm in a slump. My skin is combination, it's only oily in the T-Zone. I do wear makeup but I'm very careful about what kind of stuff I put on my face, and I cleanse at night to make sure I remove all of it. As for acne, it's not really acne really, but I usually have at least one or two blemishes on my face at all times, whether it's just clogged pores or a smaller blemish. I also have red post-acne marks that are slowly fading. I'm using birth control to help with those hormonal ones and it helps for the most part. Currently my skincare routine is: Morning Aveeno Positively Radiant Makeup Removing Cleanser (it's really gentle, I use it both morning and night) Clinique Dramatically Different Moisturizing Lotion Night Garnier Clean Sensitive Makeup Wipes Aveeno Positively Radiant Makeup Removing Cleanser Clinique Clinical Clearing Gel (on spots, thin layer all over as well) and on dry spots I'll use the moisturizer again. My skin isn't particularly sensitive, but I don't want to upset it so I go for gentler products (except the gel, I use the harsher stuff at night). I'm also a student that works part-time so I don't mind spending 50-60 on a product I know is going to work, but I don't want to buy a ton of different products- you know? I've learned less is more. Anyway- so far I've been looking at a few PTR products to help me prevent any more blemishes from showing up. I've been looking at the Therapeutic Sulfur Mask, AHA/BHA Acne Clearing Gel, and the Glycolic Acid 10% Hydrating Gel. I'm also open to other products/brands! Thanks for any advice. EDIT: I'm now wondering if I should be using a cleanser or moisturizer with acne-fighting ingredients, or a mask, to try and prevent and just use a spot treatment? I'm not sure. I don't want to overload my face with products.
My skin is very sensitive and breaks out very easily. I have been using a clairisonic and since ive been using it my skin has got better, although I am still using a drugstore cleanser. I am needing something to help clear up my skin while still being gentle enough for my sensitive skin and to use with my clairisonic. Any suggestions?
Does anyone have a suggestion for an eyeliner that is long-wearing, doesn't smudge/run/fade throughout the day, with high pigmentation? I use it under my lashline underneath my eye. NARS larger than life long-wear liner is pretty good, but I wish there were more colors. Some colors still run and don't last all day. So, I was hoping for another suggestion to try. **If anyone has a recommendation for something for under my eye so mascara and eyeliner are less likely to run onto that area, that would be great too!
Over the last few years I have started to develop an insatiable obsession with beauty products (much to my husbands dismay). It started with youtube videos that left me wondering "hmmm... what if..." and developed into an obsession that brought me to the container store almost every weekend to find a new "keep all" to organize it in. I'll be honest - I started with Ulta, reached Platinum Status and found out later all of the fabulous perks that Sephora offered, leading me to Rouge Status. I am now one of those crazy people who checks my sephora app for new rewards posted at least 5 (okay - maybe 10-15) times a day. Yes, I've read and followed you beauty adventurers enough to know that they USUALLY only update those perks around 5am, IF they do, but still, a girl can dream... After "achieving" Rouge Status I have noticed a drastic decline in quality rewards and promos and really am starting to resent and regret my decision to stick with Sephora for all of my recent purchases. I have been tuning into each of your conversations and feeds regarding awesome deals (yes - I'm a Beauty Insider "stalker", not responder or starter until now) - I have found that the grass is starting to look greener. I just placed an order with Ulta today for over $150 for items that I have been on the fence about trying, but due to their recent enhanced promos and (as always) bonus points, leading to savings on future orders I couldn't resist. I know I am rambling, but what I am trying to get at is that I wonder if as VIB and Rouge VIB statuses we have been lured into something that is no longer fruitful, or perhaps Sephora's marketing and product team is taking a summer nap? Just my thoughts.
Back story: Ever since I hit puberty I have had pretty bad acne and oily skin (not at all combo, just straight up oily all my face, chest, and upper back). When I was 19, I started taking birth control for 4 years (to help my severe cramps that would hurt so bad I would vomit, shiver, and not want to breath, making me miss work, which I couldn't afford). While on birth control my acne minimized dramatically, but I still had acne problems. If that makes sense. A year ago, I got off birth control. Right when I hit the one year mark (April) I seemed to have gotten all my acne problems back. I'm assuming at that point any remaining hormones from birth control that was left in my body was completely gone and my natural hormone levels brought my acne back. In the middle of June, I used a Neutrogena makeup cleansing wipe for 2 days and on the 3rd morning my face was covered in tiny acne bumps in addition to my larger cystic pimples! It's now almost July and my skin still has those smaller pimples, especially on my cheeks and chin! I am getting married next month and need these stupid things to go away! Skin type: Oily (Not combo at all) Sensitive (I literally fear using different skincare products other than what I usually use because I break out so easily - but my skin isn't clear, so I need to try something new) Acne prone Current skincare: Morning: Cleanser - Neutrogena "Complete Acne Therapy System"; Moisturizer - La Fresh Group "Good Day" Night: Cleanser (with Clarisonic deep pore brush head) - Same as morning; Serum - Drunk Elephant " Glycolic Night Serum"; Moisturizer - La Fresh Group " Good Night" Help!
I like the size & shape of these blushes and would like a rec for which color would be useful as a bronzer for fair skin. I have not seen the colors in person so I appreciate your thoughts on the color choices. Many thanks!
Hyo BTalkers! I open a new post here to talk about oils, facial ones and body oils, your toughts, uses, favourite products an more! I started to be into it, and will explain you my experience. My skin type is combination/normal, used to be really oily because I never took care of it when teen (now im turnin' 21) and finally could stop all the oiliness and acne problems. Thanks to all of you from this forums, I learned a lot from it and also from oils, and decided to add in my routine the Fresh face oil, and I got to say, I love it! Normally use it at night and not every day, but it really does a good job on me! I wanna know your opinions about other oils you use because I'm pointing my eyes on some of them to test like Clarins and Sunday Riley, so girls, let's talk!
is anyone else seeing the "you're almost there" message when they try to get on Sephora's website? it says theres a high amount of traffic, which usually only happens during sales and promos. am i missing out on something?
I have very sensitive skin due to using an acne cream prescribed to me. I really want to enjoy the pampering and benefits of a face mask but it seems that everything I use irritates my face. It can't have salicylic acid and it has to be oil free/ non comedogenic. Any suggestions? (also if it could be at least kind of affordable?)
I've noticed that there are a lot of face products in the world. Being a teenage I have acne whiteheads blackhead you name it I have it! I'm in desperate need for a face routine but how do I know what to get? There are so many options. Any ideas on what products I can use for sensitive skin? Acne and Blackhead wash?
I was wondering if Juliette Has a Gun has switched packaging on all of their perfumes. They used to have really cute round boxes with a bow on top, but when I purchased Miss Charming it came in a basic white box. Today I went and purchased the Surratt eyelash curler. I had seen pictures of it in a sturdy black box. The curler was tucked inside a black pouch. The one I picked up today came in a flimsy cheaper box and no pouch. I wouldn‘ t have minded so much if the price had been lowered. Now that the companies are getting more established, I guess they are focusing are increasing their profits.
So i get milia, and i have started exfoliating and it seems like its getting better but every time i apply foundation it only gets worse. I use the nars sheer glow, and i love it but i feel like it contributes to it. Is there any foundation that isn't as bad? I do take care of my skin very well now.
