Glam glow face wash and the foreo Luna mini
So I have been interested in the glam glow super cleanse fashwash. The problem is, I have the foreo Luna mini and it says not to use exfoliating washes with it because it can wear down the bristles.... Is the glam glow face wash exfoliating, or more of just a mud with no extra exfoliating bits? Any advice would be wonderful!!!!!

Can anyone recommend a concealer that wont cause breakouts???
I got the Clinique air brushed concealer because i normally love their products because they are friendly to skin but i have started using it in places other than under my eyes recently (bridge of nose, between/above my brows, cupids bow all to do some highlighting with my foundation) and it made me break out like crazy well at least i think it's the culprit. But i'm wondering if anyone knows of a concealer i can use anywhere on my face that either helps fight acne or if you know of one that does not cause you to break out??

illumask anti-acne light therapy mask
I have been having some acne troubles and I went ahead and bought the Illumask.  It was on sale at Target for $25, but I had a $5 coupon for Ulta and some points, so i went there- $30-$5= $25, plus a free travel case (bc  I def needed that, right?).   I decided to try it tonight while watching the Ravens.  My family had a great laugh about it, so hopefully they're past it, but probably not...   For those of you curious if it works, I will try to keep up documenting my 30 day journey.  I even took a few pics, although I'm soooo not comfortable showing my face in its current state.  My face has about 5 blemishes right now, chin/mouth area, two are cystic and hurt, although better than yesterday for sure.   If I forget details or you have questions, feel free to ask.     I just got finished using it.  Directions are pretty simple:  start with a clean face, put mask on like a pair of sunglasses, push button.  It lights up right away, and goes off after 15 minutes on its own.  The counter starts at 30, and counts down 1 each time you turn it on.  There is no such thing as a pause , if you stop and start, it will deduct a use from the counter.     So 30 uses, 30 days, less than a dollar a day.  I don't know if it works, but what the heck...if it were $100, I'd say no until someone else tried it first, but $25 is worth it,     My first impression is yea right, but I'm hopeful.  Fifteen minutes went by pretty quickly.  I will say, there is virtually no line of vision- I can only see if the room is lit up, and only in front of me.  Forget walking down the steps or even typing...just takes too much effort.   Day 1:  Begin.  5 blemishes- 3 on day 2 of healing.   Day 2:  5 blemishes, sorta dried out, two still raised and red, although not painful. Day 3:  So far, healing nicely.  No more pain, but now I'm fighting the dryness.  I've had to moisturize throughout the day b/c layers of skin is starting to peel, which I'll trade for pain and red.  The two cystic are raised but have subsided a little.   Day 4:  Last night- my face was dry.  I used the mask and did my skincare routine.  The bumps are still there.  They'll be around for a while.  Nothing new coming in behind it, which is a good sign. Day 5-10:  Dry around the chin/mouth area, but no new spots to write about.  YAY! Day 20:  All is clear- dryness has subsided significantly.  Just trying to reduce redness now.

Exfoliating causes breakouts- how to remove dead skin?
I have been trying a variety of exfoliators for years, but I break out whenever I use one (it seems). I know that dead skin is building up if I don't use anything, but I haven't found one that doesn't break me out (I have been trying gentler and gentler scrubs- right now, Philosophy Mircrodelivery). What can I do to remove dead skin?

Help! I'm looking for a good product to get rid of Keratosis Pilaris on my face!
I have keratosis pilaris on my arms and I've found something to take care of that. However, I have it on my forehead and have no idea how to get rid of it! My skin is relatively dry, acne-free with the occasional whitehead, and somewhat sensitive (it gets red easily). I worked for a company for 2 years that sells skincare so I have a decent amount of knowledge on skincare, but I still haven't found anything good for the KP on my face. Help please?

Q. Complicated skin is an understatement!
I've tried EVERYTHING! Murad? Kate Sommerville? Clairsonic?   I am looking for any advice on my never ending skin problems. I just turned thirty and for as long as I can possibly remember I've had problem skin. I get acne breakouts---the worst being hormonal break outs around my cycle. I get blackheads, white heads, large blemishes, small blemishes---you name it. Unfortunately it is not only on my face but also on my neck, chest and back. It feels like I have tried everything. From perscription remedies from my dermatologist, acutane and I am sure I have spent a small fortune on skin care products. I am currently using Kiehl's products. I have been using them since October and I have seen minimal results. I have heard good things about Kate Sommerville, Murad and the Clairsonic but before I change my skin care line once again I thought I would get as much advice as possible to avoid spending more money! Please! Any advice would be greatly appreciated! Thanks

Needing regime order help and input for a Tretinoin user..

I'm finding I'm more self conscious of them now that I'm dating more and am considering the Clarisonic and/or a peel but am seeking your help.   Right now my AM regime is REN Rosa Centifolia Purity Cleansing Balm (to help with the peeling), Kate Somerville Clarifying Treatment Toner, Ole Henriksen Truth Serum Collagen Booster, Perricone MD Photo Plasma, then makeup.   My PM regime is a mild cleanser (looking for a new one), Kate Somerville Clarifying Treatment Toner, Tazorac.  Where would my Truth Serum Collagen Booster fit in at night (this should be helping with the dark spots, right)?

Do Pore clearing products really work?
I have tried so many different products to clear my blackheads on the nose - from pore strips and clay masks to Clarisonic and face scrubs. Nothing seems to even remotely get rid of them. My regular skin care routine is washing my face with Ole Henriksen African Tea face wash with a Clarisonic, the Vitamin C serum, then OH moisturizer So far the only thing that has worked for me to get rid of the pesky blackheads is a comedone  extractor tool. But I fear it is damaging to my skin as I do it twice a week.    I feel like clay masks do nothing to battle them. Mario Badescu Silver powder has helped a little, but not much.    Any recommendations on foolproof blackhead prevention and extraction?
