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?
Hi, I do not understand few things. I have tried few products from Sephora and a lot from Korean brands. When they are non-Korean brands they are hurting my face a lot. For example, Kate Somerville, Ole Henriksen's products, they hurt me a lot. However, when I use korean brands such as all Faceshop products, it's skin, Laneige, etc, they are a lot smoother, so I wonder why does it do this to me! And if I should be restricted to only buy from Korean brands. thanks!
Hi! My skin is dry but oily on my lower forehead. I have a few acne spots and a lot of dry patches below my eyebrows, on the upper half of my chin and on my lower cheeks. This is what my routine is now. I use cetaphil to wash my face with a Clarisonic and then I use the neutrogena hydro boost gel creme. I then use a beauty blender to apply either the Too Faced Born this way Foundation or the IT cosmetics cc creme, and apply a Mac setting powder. when I take my makeup off at night I will sometimes put on Vitamin E creme or Aquaphor on my dry patches to help them go away but it doesn't do much. Any suggestions?
Hi everyone! I've been thinking of purchasing a toner, but I have no idea what to try. I was going to buy a Clinique toner, but a sales associate at sephora told me it would be too harsh on my skin. I have acne prone and sensitive skin, so I am always conscious about what I put on my face. I do use a prescription from my dermatologist, not sure if that matters or not! I would also like to avoid something that dries out my skin, I've finally gotten my dryness under control. I'd appreciate the help! Thanks!
Hey there! I am so lucky to love my job but I work outside. I work in merchandise and live in Florida. After about five minutes outside you are already sweating up a storm! My shifts are about 8 hours long outside with two thirty minute breaks. Does anyone have any recommendations of what I should use to help my skin? I always wear my hair up and my problem area is my jaw and cheeks. Thanks!
Hi, I have been STRUGGLING with this issue.... for so many years already I find that no skin care products help, as it comes from within the body. So I am not asking for skin care help.. but rather, SUPPLEMENTS that help adjust the hormone back to a normal level. I know all that blurb about eating right sleeping right and exercising and decreasing stress blah blah... but I need to know what SUPPLEMENT can help fight that male hormone which causes this ugly situation!! Also I know that female hormone supplement helps but it can cause weight gain so I don't want that..... plz give some suggestion???? thanks!!!!!!!!
Hello. I'm in my mid 30's and want to switch to a natural line. I break out daily all over and its worse during my period. I would like to stay within the same line. Which line would work best for me: Tata Harper, Drunk Elephant, or Sunday Riley?
I have a mild acne that I would like to reduce or if it is possible make it disappear, I have normal to dry skin and I used to prevent acne with natural products like Aloe Vera but, since my acne is a little bit more noticeable than it was before I think the best is to try a different product. PS: I'm allergic to Benzoyl Peroxide, Petrolatum and Mineral Oil.
I suffer from the most inevitable; Acne. I have a few pimples on my forehead, nose and chin, but most the acne on my face is scaring. My nose, however, is infested with embedded black heads. I wash my face 3-4 times a day with Acne Dote Face Wash, I use homemade soap to cool my face (after using the acne wash, my face feels like it's burning and redness appears), I then apply coconut oil. I have been doing this for months now and I've hardly noticed any changes. The only change I've seen is the bumpiness has gone down slightly, but that's about it. I'm going to be starting high school in a few days, and I truly wish not to be picked on because of it. I've been picked on a lot during activities I participated in. Do you have any suggestions how to remove the blackheads / lighten or remove acne scaring / clear up the pimples on my forehead, chin and nose? Thanks. Spoiler (Highlight to read)
I have combination skin that tends to lean more towards the oily side, and I feel like my pores are just very congested. Especially on my nose. I have a lot of blackheads and I want to get rid of them so badly. Can anyone recommend a product that has worked for them? Thanks!
I have a couple red spots and a few brown spots on my cheeks from acne. What products can I buy to reduce this? I started using Shiseido enriched mositurizer / night mask and mud clay as well. I prefer shiseido if possible. Thank you
Ok, I just used the clarisonic for the first time 3 days ago. I'd been debating getting it for 2 years now for this very reason...but finally took the plunge hoping it would help me with my large pores/blackheads on my chin. I used the sensitive brush, and planned on using it just once a week until my skin got used to it. But now I'm wondering if I made a $150 mistake...I've got huge, cystic like bumps coming up on my chin, and even one under my eye on my cheekbone ( I NEVER break out there). What gives? Should I stop using it or just give it time? What was your experience with clarisonic?
Hi guys!! It's been a while since i've been on beauty talk but I recently got super into Sunday Riley for some reason and have been deciding whether or not to get Luna Oil or Good Genes! I'm comparing both and wondering which one you think would help the most for blemishes! I started using the Good Genes every night for 3 days, broke out then realized I probably shouldn't have gone so gung ho!! So for the last five days i've been using it every second night and have seen a bit of improvement. Any experiences or recommendations? I have samples of both to try at home
I have always had great looks, but right now they need some help. Girls, if you have ever had blackheads and or pimples, you know what I am talking about. We freak out if we even see one, but multiple! What do I do? School's starting and I want to look cuter than ever. Do any of you girls know what I could do to quickly stop these pimples and blackheads. Thanks. Let me know of any advice you have.
So I have these reddish bumps on my face and they just keep getting worse, had them for two years. I currently use glossier milk jelly cleanser, drunk elephant AHA and CeraVe Facical moisturizer. I've tried a couple of things on my face and I think it is getting worse, if you even have the slightest idea as to what this skin problem is called please let me know. I will appreciate any and all help doing my way guys. Thank you!
A bit of background: For the last four years, or so, I've been struggling with large, painful cysts and nodules mostly on my chin, but will migrate to my cheeks or forehead on the rare occasion. They pop up all the time and it's not time-of-the-month exclusive. I've seen a few dermatologists that seem totally against putting me on any sort of regimen such as Accutane and have never been able to treat this problem with topicals like clindamycin and adapalene or with birth control pills. I currently do not wear ANY face makeup (no foundation, primer, concealer, or even sunscreen). I figured it was wearing makeup that was causing these insane outbreaks, but after not wearing a dollop of makeup other than the rare application of mascara or eyeliner, it has made no difference. I religiously clean my phone, my flute headjoint (I am a professional classical musician) and my pillowcases any moment I can get. So I'm not sure it's environmental. I notice most acne products are geared towards oily skin, but despite having these acne issues, my skin is literally desert dry, so finding products that work for me has really been a struggle. My skin also does not react well to salicylic acid or benzyl peroxide, either. It has been recommended that perhaps I should try oils on my face... but there is just something about it that does not work for me... the oil literally will just sit on my face and will not absorb in to my skin at all. Also, there is something in Origins products that does not agree with my skin at all. Each time I try one, I always have to return it because it'll give me a million small white heads whenever I use one. I've had mixed results with Clinique in the past, though the alcohol they use in a few of their toners dries my skin out even worse than it already is. At first, my current regimen worked like a charm and I maybe only had one cystic nodule a month... but my skin has recently gone back to it's old crappy ways. Is there anything I should add or change to my current skincare routine? What I currently use: Caudelie Micellar Water Ren ClearCalm 3 Clarifying Clay Cleanser (with a Clarisonic Mia 2) Peter Thomas Roth Glycol Acid Toning Complex Ole Henricksen Invigorating Night Treatment First Aid Beauty Ultra Repair Cream Intense Hydration Lush's Mask of Magnaminty (once a week)
I have so many small bumps all over my face. I don't know if it's keratosis pilaris or milia or clogged pores I just really want to get rid of them. I've always suffered from acne, and I've come along way, it's just these **bleep** small bumps!
Hi all! I've been loving the Luna Sleeping Oil by Sunday Riley for the last month and have definitely noticed some huge improvements in my fine lines and discoloration. However. I'm still finding myself breaking out a bit in clusters. I've heard great things about both the Artemis and U.F.O. oils from Sunday Riley and was wondering if anyone had a preference between the two. For reference, I'm about to slide into my 30s, have normal-oily skin. I wash my face daily with a Clairsonic and use the Dr. Dennis Gross Acne Eliminating Pads which have definitely been helping as well. I'm basically just looking for the last push in my skin care routine. I'm good applying morning and night and am open to any combo of suggestions. Thanks babes!
so, I've recently notice a lot of white bumps and some blackheads on my chin. which product would get rid of that and will work on my sensitive, but OILY skin? I'm desperate to get my smooth skin back, please help me.
I am 35 years old and while I'm begin to get concerned about mild signs of aging, my biggest concern is the acne and bumps I have on my cheeks, chin, and the lower side of my jaw. I use retin-A, and plan to continue doing so, but I've had a hard time finding a cleanser and toner, and perhaps foundation, that works well for me (too many products out there!). Recommendations?
my skin is usually pretty clear, but once in a while i start to feel one of those deep pimples about to surface. is there anything i can do to prevent it from fully forming? i try everything to make it go away as soon as i feel it coming, but within a day or two it turns into a huge blemish that takes weeks to go away. are there any good products i can apply as soon as i feel it coming to stop it from growing? price isn't an issue as long as it works, I'm desperate lol thank you!!
