What are your holy grail products? I use hydrocortizone cream for spot itch reduction, and Aveeno, but it seems the relief is only temporary I also use a humidifier, which helps a bit, but I have these patches of raised rashes (sorry for TMI or grossness) and they are unsightly and itch like crazy. I'm open to home remedies, new products, high end products, weird products, voodoo, anything.
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?
I'm incredibly curious about this serum (I love that its vegan and uses natural derivatives) and I was wondering if you guys could tell me your experience with it if you've tried it or your opinion on it. It appears to be a fairly new brand/product and while I have checked out the product's reviews I was hoping to start more of a conversation about it. I have sensitive, acne prone skin and I am fairly pale so I was hoping this product would help clear blemishes as well as lighten some hyper pigmentation. Any thoughts?
Hey everyone! I have been breaking out across my cheeks, temples and neck for the past few months or more and I have tried maybe 6 different cleansers, serums, and spot treatments. Nothing is touching this. It's getting worse and actually have been having people notice and comment on my acne. I generally have had dry skin, but maybe not anymore? I never had acne growing up and I'm now 27 years old dealing with this. Any product recommendations? Please Help and Thank You!
I'm looking for a very basic moisturizer that is cruelty free. I need something very basic as I am on Retin-A micro and Benzaclyn an don't want any additional retinols, etc. My dermatologist gave me samples of cetaphil, but I prefer more natural and cruelty free. Any recommendations? I do use other Dr. Dennis Gross products, but I'm concerned that the chelating complex moisturizer will interfere with my acne medications.
I've struggled and still struggle with hormonal/cystic acne that didn't start until I was around 20-21. I'm currently looking for suggestions on a product that could help control my hormonal acne, but above anything else help get rid of my acne scars! Some of my scars are dark and some are sort of red. I also have some hyper pigmentation and slightly dry skin. I'm so tired of having an uneven skin tone and I just want nice smooth skin! Haha any suggestions would be great!!
Hello fellow beauty queens <3 It's time to be honest and up front: I'm struggling with hormonal acne. I had moderate acne in high school, went on BC, it cleared up wonderfully. Now that I'm off BC (I now have an IUD), I'm dealing with awful hormonal acne on my chin and jawline. They're painful and cyst-like. No matter what top-notch acne ingredient I've tried does no damage to these monsters. Also, my nose, cheeks, and forehead are perfectly clear. I never get acne or breakouts there. So if I use harsh acne-fighting cleansers/topical treatments, I tend to dry out easily. My skin is fairly sensitive to drying out. Otherwise I'd call it normal/combo. Anyone suffering similarly? Anyone have suggestions/comments/feedback/anything?? I'm somewhat desperate. I appreciate anything you have to offer in advanced!
I have a lot of points sitting in my account and the 100/250/500 point rewards are always so lackluster or disappointing for the amount of points required. I don't ever redeem my points and and this point I'm just hoarding them but will Sephora ever try something similar to epic rewards (although the first time was a disaster) I'd hate to just save points and not have any use for them.
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 recently went to my local sephora store and one of the cast members told me that there might not be a vib rouge november 2015 sale because apprently people were taking advantange of the past rouge sales and returning everything to get the full refund. does anybody know any details regarding the november sale?
I am looking to get rid of or just help my scarring. I've researched a few products like Murads post acne lightening gel, PTR gentle complexion correction pads, and Korres Wild Rose + Vitamin C Advanced Brightening Sleeping Facial but I would appreciate other opinions. It can be any type of product that has helped with your own spots. My daily routine consists of: -washing face 2x daily with Cetaphil face wash -for a scrub I use st. Ives oatmeal scrub -murad hydrating toner -tarte maracuja oil -PTR Therapeutic Sulfur Masque Acne Treatment Masque
Has anyone else had a problem with this? I just started using it in the beginning of October and about three weeks ago I started getting terrible neck acne on my hair line that reaches up to behind my ears and a tiny bit on my throat, as well as a little bit on the hairline of my forehead. I never, ever, ever breakout, so this is odd for me. I ran out (it was a travel size) about two weeks ago and the acne has only gotten worse, but I'm hoping that's just from residual clogged pores. I'm trying to narrow it down to one of four things: 1.) The product itself 2.) The fact that I just simply washed my hair way less while using it 3.) Stupid hormones (I'm 28) 4.) Started using scarves recently because it's getting cold. I'm a nursing student and I have to wear my hair up all the time at the hospital and it's embarrassing. Help. Edit: I looked in the reviews and couldn't find anyone reporting this, which is why I'm asking it here.
I did Accutane before my wedding to clear my skin up. Aside from random nose bleeds, aches and pains from absolutely nothing, and one of my eyebrows incessantly sweating... the worst thing about it was my lips were SO DRY. So flaky, and fragile. Even the skin on my hands was fragile from what I remember. If you accidentally hit your hand on something, you'd have a tiny cut where you normally would be just fine. But really the worst part was my lips. I could not even go to the grocery store without 4 tubes of chapstick (just to be safe). Which did NOTHING. I remember panicking if I thought I might have left the house without any. It was unbearable, and I couldn't avoid picking the flakes off of my lips, but the skin was so thin and fragile they would just bleed. I was so afraid I was going to develop one of those weird habits I couldn't stop when I was done. THE HOLY GRAIL OF ACCUTANE IS AQUAPHOR ointment. Yep, plain old Aquaphor. NOT THEIR LIP STUFF. It is in a big squeeze bottle, generally by the baby stuff, or first aid items. Their lip stuff is junk. I cannot describe to you how amazing it feels to spread some of this ointment across Accutane lips... It is better than you can ever imagine... Also, to put copious amounts on before bed, and wake up to almost normal lips... Heaven. Gladly after I was done with Accutane, it took about a week for my lips to return to normal, and my skin looked amazing. ZERO black heads. However, those came back... Now I have very few breakouts, and if I do, it's generally because I had a "pick at your face fest". No picking, no zits. I did need to use moisturizer during that time on my face as well, but it did respond well to just about anything. For extremely dry skin, in the winter I have used Origins overnight mask Drink Up , which I love. I find if I use it too frequently I will break out, so I space it out. It smells great as well.
Fyi, I just stopped by ulta and saw that they have Tony Moly masks in stock. The associate said they'll be getting more products soon! She's not sure when it'll show up online! :-D I love their panda collection. It's hard to find the panda eye patches but they work wonders!
I need to spend about $60 for the Holiday shopping event so I will be VIB for next year. I am a Southern 62 yr old grandmother, fighting the never ending battle against wrinkles. I love trying new products but cannot get to the store frequently to test the newer items. I would appreciate sharing prods you love and would buy again - thank you for helping = I am interested in everything=perfume, make up, skin care.
Hi, I’m 57, few wrinkles, but starting with lack of firmness. I use Renova at night and I am looking to add an anti-oxidant serum on the nights I do not use Renova, any advice would be welcomed. I have combination skin, dry on the sides; T zone can tend to be oily, sensitive skin. There is so much out there, someone told me about Paula’s Choice but I do not see this listed.
Hi I need some help! I am 24 and Ive always had some minor breakouts but this summer my skin turned just got horrible, leaving me with terrible acne scarring.I cannot stop the breakouts from coming back. I went into spear and one of the beauty advisors suggested I use mural acne kit for the day time and then use peter thomas roth 3 person glycolic cleanser and peter them roth 10 person moisturizer. Since this routine my skin has been getting very dry (usually have oily skin). So i went back into to sephora and spoke to someone else and she told me the murad and peter thomas roth together is too much for my skin and I need to pick. So she suggested this routine: peter thomas roth 3 percent glycolic cleanser peter thomas roth 10 percent toning complex laneige water bank serum to hydrate laneige water bank moisturizer She also said I could use the peter thomas roth 10 percent moisturizer instead of the laneige moisturizer but I am scared that will be too much for my skin. Is it possible to use all 3 peter thomas roth glycolic products without irritating my skin if I use the laneige water bank serum to hydrate. I hate these scars they are so bad! and I want to get rid of these breakouts too. Would it also for someone to suggest a good day time routine that could work well with the peter thomas routine and address my acne prone skin? lol i know this is a lot but I need help!!
Hey everybody! So, my foundation brush (MAC 187!) has passed on to a better life after five years, and I was hoping to get recommendations for a new one? It would be used exclusively for liquid foundation, if that helps. Thank you so much!
I use the HD makeup forever foundation in Y255 (sand beige) and i want the makeup forever full coverage concealer that matches EXACTLY so that i can cover blemishes etc, which shade would you recommend?
