Mascara Madness is back at Nordstrom this Saturday the 23rd. Buy 2 get 1 free mascaras! The only "high end" mascara I have used is They're Real by Benefit, and I love it, but I wanna use this sale as an opportunity to try maybe some MAC or Clinique...really anything! I naturally have long lashes, just looking for a mascara that will really darken them and add volume, with no clumping or flaking. What mascaras do you recommend buying from Mascara Madness? What ones are you going to buy!? Thanks beauties

Trying to find an acne treatment that will not dry out my super sensitive and dry skin. I occasionally get eczema on my face and anything I use to treat that causes even more acne on top of the eczema.
Hi! I have always been searching for the best acne product. I have a terrible sensitive skin to the point of frustation. I have tried from Clinique to what most people said as their holy grail, GLAMGLOW SUPERMUD. They did not work on me. I am currently using the origins scne treatments along with its zero oil, cleaner, toner, moisturizer and mask for about weeks or so? But I can't find any improvement at all. I was thinking to buy bosica, but I am still not sure. What is the best acne care product should I use? I'm 19 y/o, with combination skin type. Thank you in advance!
I have suffered from acne since I was a freshman in high school. I am now a sophomore in high school. I have moderate acne with much redness and just a little scaring. I am tired of nothing working. Does anyone have suggestions?
I have been using It Cosmetics Makeup and the Murad Acne Starter Kit for more than two months. I have oily skin and most of my acne is on my cheeks and jawline. The Murad stuff seems to work a bit, but the acne isn't going away (one blemish turns into post-acne, and another pops up). What am I missing here?
Hello! To start off, I'm 24 and have dealt with acne since my early teenage years. I have combination oily skin,as well as some redness. I've been on acne medication since I was 17 (orally I take minocycline and also use a topical combination of benzoyl peroxide and clindamycin). Because the topical medication is very drying, I only use it at night before bed. At night, unless doing a mask, exfolation, or a peel, I simply remove my makeup, cleanse, and apply my acne cream. I feel as if my skin has become stagnant and isn't really improving with all of the skincare products I feel I've invested in. I also can't seem to figure out when to apply a night moisturizer (before or after my acne cream?) nor have I found one that doesn't make me break out. Any advice on new products, or suggestions in rearranging my routine are highly appreciated! If it helps, here's my current routine: AM routine - - wash face with hands and warm water (I have found using a cleanser in the AM makes me oilier faster) - Lush's Breath of Fresh Air toner water - Mario Badescu oil-free moisturizer - Smashbox color adjusting primer PM routine - - remove makeup with Elf's cleansing cloths - cleanse with Dermalogica Special Cleansing Gel (sometimes I'll use Fresh's soy cleanser for a more genlte cleanse) - benzoyl peroxide/clindamycin acne cream * on alternating nights I will exfoliate with Lush's ocean salt or use Glossier's mega greens mask. I also recently have been experimenting with peels and have enjoyed them thus far, but am not religious enough with them to notice a difference. Again, any advice or recommendations are super appreciated! Thanks in advance <3 P.S. As for product recommendations, I will only use those that are cruelty free.
I recently turned 30 (yikes!) For two or so years I have been noticing breakouts on a regular basis; mainly chin or forehead area. I do touch my face often at work, but I wash my hands constantly. I have EXTREMELY sensitive skin, and cannot use anything with soap, dyes, sacylic acid, etc. I have tried a lot during my 20's as a trial and error basis, and the only thing that seems to work is Aveeno calming wash. When I say my skin sucks, it does, and everything makes it irritated. I am ok with that, but need a spot treatment or a wash I use on a weekly/monthly basis. help!! Thanks!

I recently turned 21 this month. But I see my family members and genetically we age very badly at a very young age. I know we cant stop aging, but I would at least like to slow it down. What regime would best suit my age? I don't want to use retinol or anything like that. I already moisturize every morning. But besides that, any recommendations? I notice fine lines on my forehead and around my lips. Thanks!
I already have the Filmstar bronze & glow palette but looking into some of her other products. Does anyone have any experiences they would like to share esp with her Light Wonder Foundation, her blush and the Airbrush Flawless Finish Powder? I'm interested in getting these three things but still on the fence about taking the plunge! Please let me know, many BTers opinions have helped me out on products before Thanks in advance!
Just wanted to create a forum where everyone can vent and am also curious as to how bad it can get or if I'm the only one that feels angry and embarrassed after leaving my local Sephora for being treated badly. Please feel free to share your stories!
I'm looking for something extra to apply to my facial routine to help dodge blemishes and maintain a clear complexion. Any spot treatment I've given a try hasn't worked in the slightest so I figured I would try another approach. Have any of you tried a blemish serum or have any ideas of products that are most effective? Thanks in advance!!
Hi, I'm looking to tweak my current skincare regimen. I'm 24 years old. As a teenager I never really had problems with my face, other than a random pimple here or there. But now I have pimples all over my forehead, down the sides of my temples, a couple on my cheeks close to my nose, and on my chin. My skin is combo. My T-zone is a bit oily and it shines. My cheeks are normal to dry. My main concerns are the pimples, my huge freaking pores, and the redness associated with post-zits. In the last week I've been tweaking my routine and I find my skin has been improving. I think I'm using the masks too often as now my cheeks are getting really dry in some areas and they weren't before. A lovely SA suggested that I add the Glamglow Supermud Cleanser, their masks, the Ole Henriksen Truth Serum Vitamin C Collagen Booster, and an Ole Henriksen moisturizer (I forget the name and it wasn't clear on the sample). So my current skincare regimen is as follows: *Note, I don't have an AM routine. I usually just rinse off last's nights creams, apply a primer and do my makeup. I've been thinking of adding an AM routine lately but I'm not sure. **PM Routine: I remove my makeup using Philosophy's Purity Cleanser. I use Neutrogena's Oil-Free Eye Makeup Remover for whatever eye makeup didn't come off. When I don't wear makeup I would use Boscia's Detoxifying Black Cleanser but now I've switched that out for Glamglow's Supermud Cleanser . If I'm doing a mask or exfoliation, here is where I'll do it. Before the tweak I had been using MAC's Mineralize Volcanic Ash Exfoliator . Once a week I use Boscia's Luminizing Black Mask . Since the tweak, I haven't used the MAC exfoliator and I've been using both the Glamglow Youthmud and Supermud masks every other day together. On the other day I would use Origins Clear Improvements Active Charcoal Mask . As a toner I use Boscia's Clear Complexions Tonic . I've recently added a serum, Ole Henriksen Truth Serum Vitamin C Collagen Booster . Then I apply Boscia's No Pores No Shine T-Zone Treatment . For a moisturizer, I was using Philosophy's Hope In A Jar for winter and in the summer I use Boscia's Revitalizing Black Hydration Gel . Now, I'm trying out the Ole Henriksen one that was recommended to me. When my cheeks are really dry I use Glamglow's Thirstymud mask . For an eye cream, I'm not using anything special, just going through the tons of eye cream samples that I have. And finally I apply The Body Shop's Tea Tree Blemish Fade Night Lotion . I was thinking of adding more things from Boscia's Clear Complexion line. I've also heard good things about Murad, Ole Henriksen, and Fresh. So I'm just looking for suggestions on products I can add to my routine based on my skincare needs. Also I'm not sure where to start with a morning routine. Thanks!
Has anyone tried this specific kit (or dermarolling in general)? It's all over YT and many beauty bloggers have tried it - so I'm curious if anyone from BT has tried it? I've just started this last week (using the 0.5mm roller), so I'll be happy to share my experiences with it so far if anyone is interested.
I know it is quite sad and demented that I bought all four but I absolutely love this line! I was dying to try all of these as I have been a Philosophy Purity lover for years but I honesty can not believe the difference in my skin after switching to only the GlamGlow cleansers and rotating between the different masks. Tip: I find that wetting my face beforehand is a must to work up a nice lather and not strip my skin. I find applying to dry skin as stated on the bottle does not work for me. I also just use 1-1/2 pumps per application. Anything more than that, is just a waste of product on my skin. With rotating these cleansers for about a week in both morning and night, I feel my skin has never looked or felt better. Not only are my blackheads gone, but I feel my pours look smaller. My skin is just incredibly clear as well! I feel as though I have said goodbye to purity forever! I left everything else in my daily routine the same during this week trial and only took out purity. I feel now that purity actually caused more breakouts and didn't deeply cleanse my skin. Supermud Cleanser: I really feel I might actually like this better than the mask. As long as I apply like I described above, don't have any dryness at all. I find that it really does keep my skin clear although I really do feel as though all the cleansers do that for my skin. I find the actual mask can be a bit drying. Thristymud Cleanser: I actually like this better than the mask. With the mask I almost feel a sticky feeling. With this cleanser, my skin just feels smooth and hydrated. Absolutely love the coconut scent! OMG! Powermud Cleanser: Absolutely love this cleanser! The mask is my favorite too! I feel this cleanser really balances out my skin out as I do tend to be on the oily side. I use many oil free skincare and makeup products as they work well for my sensitive acne prone skin. Youth Cleanse: I was a bit afraid of this cleanser because of the bad reviews. I honestly saw an overnight difference in texture on my skin. I absolute could not believe it. This was surprising to me as the Youth Mask has been my least favorite in the GlamGlow mask line! Sephora did not send me any of these products and all were bought with my own money!
SO I got a spa gift card for mothers day ( yay my honey! lol ) and i am debating getting my first actual professional facial. What are everyones expereiences with them? Or should i just stick with a mani/ pedi?
My beautiful daughter has small asian like eyelids. I have always applied my artliner above my lash line but she learned to apply her cream liner with an angled brush along her tight line. She started wearing contacts so the tight line is now an awkward thing. Does anyone have a skinny liner that won't cover her entire lid or any technique to suggest ? She wants to use it for prom this weekend for prom! Thanks for your help!
I have never had problem skin until recently. I do think hormone changes are a main cause, but I need advice on a great face wash. My skin is normal to dry and I get occasional blemishes around my menstrual cycle, and I almost always have cystic type areas with no head on them. I do have an exfoliator I use regularly, but I need a daily face wash to not dry me out and help with my issue! Thanks!
Hi again guys! Okay so I suffer with bad break outs and being a picker and tempted to pick my spots i've left myself with scaring!! silly of me obviously. But I was wondering what can help fade them away. Home remedies or CHEAP products as I can't afford expensive stuff! I have sensitive skin and combination skin. ALSO on my forehead i seem to have loads and loads of spots but they're not extremely visible and they don't come to the surface where they are white heads...They're literally JUST THERE. how can i get rid of this or help get rid of it?!! I've always dreamed of having lovely skin. my skin used to be great when i was 14 but when i turned 15 ( 18 this year ) BOOM break out into millions of spots! ANY advice is appreciated i could really use it! Thanks a bunch!!!
Hi everyone, I have had dry, slightly combination skin (in that the t-zone is oilier, but not really that much). I've never had to deal with breakouts before. However, of late, I have been noticing that the t-zone pores look larger, and I end up having a few breakouts on my cheek as well. Am I overdoing the moisturizing/hydrating bit in my skincare routine? At night, I cleanse with the Ole Henriksen Pure truth cleanser, then with the Fresh Soy Cleanser. I then use the FAB radiance pads and then use Boscia's Tsubaki Beauty Oil and follow up with a hydrating night cream. Is that too much? Should I replace the Tsubaki beauty oil with another serum?
