Will there be an email about the December Coupon for 2014?
Hi, I'm wondering if VIB Rouges will get a email as well as the mailer for the $ off. My mailing address is at university and I don't believe I'll reach it in time if I only receive the mailer and not some sort of code via email. Thank you!

Am I over exfoliating my face?
  I recently went to an esthetician for a facial and I told her what I was using at home. She told me I was using too many products and it was actually more harmful for my face. Background about me : I have really oily skin. I have been using Pro Activ for a long time and have within the last month switched over to using Kate Sommerville. I have cystic acne usually around my chin ( possibly hormonal acne)   My skin care regimen: am: Kate Sommerville Daily Cleanser ( I use with my carisonic)        -pro Activ toner or Kate Sommerville toner        -Kate Sommerville Acne clearing lotion        - I spot treat acne spots with Murad Acne spot Fast Fix or Lush Grease Lightning        - I moisturize with my Kate Sommerville moisturizer or Clinique dramatically different moisturizing gel   night: Kate Sommerville Daily Cleanser ( use clarisonic)          -pro activ or Kate Sommerville toner           -I spot treat with proactiv refining mask or Eradikate          -everywhere else I use Dr. Dennis Gross Moisturizer   usually every other day I use a different clay mask( glam glow or an over the counter mask) then use an enzyme mask right after   every Friday I use my Kate Sommerville resurfacing pads every Mon I use Exfolikate   I know it may seem too much but I don't know what to cut out. I feel like every product has a purpose. My face responds better to Benzoyl peroxide. I have tried many other products in the past that have not worked and were suggested by my dermatologist ex. Cetaphil, Murad etc. Ive only within the last month have incorporated the use of masks and chemical peels into my facial routine.

Best makeup for acne?
I have cystic acne and combination skin, with lots of acne scars. And I go through a lot of stress, so I get acne due to that as well. What is the best makeup to cover it up, and perhaps even help treat it? I would like something that lasts at least 8 hours and doesn't look or feel cakey.  I have recently tried: Maybelline Dream Pure BB cream It Cosmetics Bye Bye Under Eye full coverage concealer Revlon Photoready foundation Covergirl Ready Set Gorgeous Elf Cover Everything Concealer and all avon products.   If you could provide me with what you think is the best makeup for my skin, thank you.

In need of a new face wash
I need new face wash or a full out new ritual because I still haven't found any type of skincare solution to actually use. I am in my early 20s and have had chronic acne for years. I have used many products in an attempt to help my chronic acne including: Murad, Josie Maran, Stridex, Neutrogena, and tea tree oil products from The Body Shop.   Nothing is working and I'm getting very fed up. I have combination skin, but the only area I really get acne in is my cheeks, chin, and around my mouth. In these areas it tend to get very oily. In the photo I uploaded, you can kind of see what my current situation is.   Does anyone have any recommendations? I tried to use the online Sephora Skincare i.d., but it recommended me a plethora of products and I don't even know where to start. I am also considering purchasing the Clarisonic Mia System. Any thoughts?

Tea Tree Oil
So, I was talking to a friend about Tea Tree Oil and she said that Tea Tree is good for acne. So when she said that it made me think of the Tea Tree line at The Body Shop (in the green bottles). Have any of you tried any of that stuff? Which ones did you find most effective and which ones not so much? Any favorites? I'm maybe looking into trying it out, I find that Benzoyl Peroxide helps clear my acne best. I'm currently using Rodan and Fields Unblemish Line and it is working for me but I think it is drying out my skin because I used to be oily but now I have some dry patches still on my face after I put the moisturizer on.  Thanks!!

Foreo Luna? Which One to Buy and What you think about it!
I have oily, acne prone skin, with moderate acne. I have pale skin that gets red really easily and its a little dull . I'm looking for a product that will completely change my skin. Hoping this product will do it. I've heard good things about it but I don't know if it will address my skin concerns. I have used the Clarisonic off and on for about 3 years, but I am only 14, so when I started using the clarisonic, my skin was naturally getting worse . I feel my skin is nice after I wash my face with the clarisonic but it doesn't do anything to it to help much. If i buy the Foreo Luna, which one should I get? My skin isn't super sensitive and I have a hard time telling if my skin is combination or oily, but i think its oily. It gets a little dry on the per meter of my cheeks and around my chin. Also in consideration, is the clinique Brush but I don't feel very strong about it. Any recommendations from people who have a similar skin type, have used this product, or have any other experience with a great cleansing brush! Thank You all! Spoiler (Highlight to read)

Dior Diva?
Any Dior Diva's out there? Willing to share your Dior "stories"?   Hello!! Earlier this summer, I had my first exposure to Dior products at my local Dillard's. I was interested in looking at just the Dior Addict lipsticks, but was informed by the woman at the counter that my makeup was just not working for me. Truly, she was polite and diplomatic. The prior statement is my summary. lol. So I let her remove my makeup and from scratch, apply full skin care and makeup. I explained to her that I would only consider a foundation that was full-coverage, because of my breakouts. She spent time talking to me about what I could do to help my skin, not just cover my problems. She told me about her husband, who had suffered from breakouts, and how, when she started working for Dior, she started a skin care routine on him, and how amazingly it worked for him. Long story short, I walked out with a laundry list of recommended products. I went back about a month later, during a Dillard's special event, and this same amazing woman walked through everything with me again, spending a good hour with me. She was so personable and I truly felt like she believed in the products and wanted to help me achieve the best skin possible.   Fast forward and I'm faithfully using the following products, which are doing wonders for my skin, applied in this order:   After washing my face: Step 1: At night: Gentle Toner In the morning: Purifying Toner (Oh - I'll use the Murad acne treatment to spot treat) Step 2: CT One Essential. I use this in the morning and at night. For the rest of the products that follow, I only use them in the morning. Step 3: CT Serum (Concentre Multi- Perfection). Should I also use this at night? Step 4: Moisturizer (NOT yet using Dior as I am finishing up other products) Step 5: CT Dreamskin (Soin Anti-Age Global Createur De Peau Parfaite) Step 6: Pore Minimizer (Skin Refining Matte Primer). I am not sure I see the value in this item as a primer.... So!! My questions for you all:   Dior Diva program: A) Have you actually signed up for the Dior Diva program through Dior? If so, how do you submit your original Sephora receipts? The receipts that come in the shipping boxes do not provide $ amounts. I was thinking that I could add a copy of my online receipts, which do include prices. B) What gift items have you selected with your points? Any recommendations? Regrets?   Skin Care: A) What kind of skin do you have? I have oily, breakout prone skin. And I'm 40 so I've got some aging starting. Blah! B) What products do you use? C) What order do you apply them? D) Do you have any recommendations or suggested changes to the what I am using/how I am using them? E) Did the line transform your skin?   Makeup: A) Do any of you typically need fuller coverage foundation and if so, have you been successful with Dior's foundation? I have a brand new one I haven't opened because I have found, via using samples, that the coverage is just too light for my needs. I bought the Capture Totale Foundation and I happen to be color #31. B) Did use of the Dior concealer provide the coverage you need for skin issues? It's on my list of items from the Dior counter, but I haven't purchased it, yet.   Thank you!! I know I "talk" a lot on my posts. 😛

Boscia purifying cleansing gel
I just bought the clarisonic winter set which comes with a bottle of boscia purifying cleansing gel. I used it yesterday, the cleansing gel is soooooo chemical and sooooo bad. Just wondering is that normal? I read the comments for that product and there are lots of compliments. Since I love my new clarisonic, I wouldn't return the set, which means that I have to keep the gel. I'm just afraid that the smell is because of the product is expired. Does anyone use that gel? It would be great if someone would let me know if that smell is normal. I don't want to use expired product and destroy my skin.   thank you a lot

My pores won't clear out!
Hey ladies!   I have a question about purging pores...I have always had large pores that are hard to clean out, but now its just getting annoying! I use the Clarisonic brush every other night (otherwise it's too harsh on my skin eczema prone face), cetaphil cleanser, Epiduo every other night, and Cerave every morning and night.    I've tried masks, had peels, all sorts of stuff. My problem is mainly on my cheeks, but I also have a problem with my nose, chin, and forehead. Does anyone have any ideas on how to purge those nasty pores?    Thanks!

buttons-bumps or elevations? how to get rid of them? :'( Help!
  I've been having a dilema and my face have these elevations.  They're not pimples and at times they're itchy. I put too pictures down there of me now --- one with the flash on the other without. At first I thought my pores were clogged but i wash my face twice a day and soap twice during each wash.  I have a combo skin so patches are oily while others are dry and others are normal.  My skin is very sensitive and reacts with intense itching and break outs because of that make up is a no-no in my everyday life. I'd just like to know if there's a product out there wo could help clear out my face.  Even with no make up it could at least be clear and beautiful. Help from anyone is appreciated   Oh! and the very last picture is one when my face reacts to my environment (make up or stress). thanks

Stress Breakouts
When I was in high school, after trying everything else, I started taking accutane for my breakouts. The acne was cured, although I continued to use mineral makeup and wash my face with Neutrogena's grapefruit acne scrub. I am now a sophmore in college, and I am starting to break out once again. Im not sure if it is due to stress or hormones (I recently stopped taking the pill due to some heart issues that are easily complicated by the pill). What treatments do you recommend to help clear acne? My skin is not oily nor is it dry. I have actually recently switched to Tarte's amazonian clay foundation and Cover FX's acne primer. In addition, I have used fake up concealer by Benefit. Do these products typically cause acne (especially the concealer?) I want the problem to go away, I dont want to continue to hide it.
