I love the Beauty Bakerie! They totally belong in Sephora. They're eyeshadow creams ("eyescream") are so amazing and different to use but they apply so well. They are a highly respected brand with very good quality products. I have their eyeshadow cream, their eye brow gel ("BROWnies") and also some of their lip whips and they are all amazing. It would be so great to see them at Sephora and to buy locally!
I'm looking for a new face wash for night time, I currently use PTR Glycolic Acid 3% facial wash, but am looking for something different. I have a few in mind which I pictured below. I have oily skin with tons of acne scars, with the occasional hormonal break out, i also sometimes use my clarisonic 1-3 times per week. Love a good light exfoliating face wash as well as hydrating!! I'm leaning towards Ole but I love PTR and Ren has great reviews and says its gentle which i love and omg I can't decide. Please help and leave any other suggestions!!
I'm a teen and I constantly have breakouts on my cheeks and between my eyebrows. I've tried lots of products, (I use them for a few months before I judge them,) and none of them do anything for me! Not only do I get pimples, but I also have scars left over from previous breakouts. Help! What do I use? Any tips?
Hi all, I recently got that awesome Tarte Mother Nature's Miracle Discovery Set and I've been playing around with all the products. My skin has been breaking out, but I'm not sure if it's purging due to the new products or the products don't work for me. I have a history of cystic prone acne but the past year my skin has been amazing, so I wasn't too concerned at first. I've read that the maracuja oil is incredible for acne prone skin so I'm not sure what's going on! Other than the small breakouts, my skin feels velvety soft and softened already. I really want to keep using this product, so if anyone has had a similar experience, I'd love to know!
I've been cutting out meat for a while, and recently went full vegan and now my skin is freaking out. I've never really had that much acne to begin with, just usually around my period. But now my face is covered. Does anyone have experience with this? I'm trying to figure out if this something I need to ride out or change my whole skincare regimen... any advice is greatly appreciated!
I've been struggling with cystic acne on my cheeks and it's been driving me insane because it always leaves an actual scar no matter how gentle I am. While I know that products at Sephora can't help with physical scars, I do want to prevent the acne so I can prevent more scarring. Please let me know if you know of any products that work well for this type of acne! I have oily (stubborn, in general) skin and clogged pores here and there. I've heard of the Renee Rouleau Anti Cyst treatment being good but you can't buy that at Sephora.
I had really bad acne up until 2 years ago. I don't have problems with the acne anymore, because I have made major adjustments to my diet. However, I am having trouble getting rid of some of the spots that the acne left. What is the best product for this problem?
My son has really bad eczema and I need help finding something that will relieve the symptoms i.e. itching. I want to go organic because I understand that product with less ingredients usually come with less potential side effects. Help Please!!
Hi guys. I have oily skin so I've been using the Josie Maran argon oil for a couple months now and its definitely made me less oily but I feel as if it may be clogging my pores and causing breakouts since it is a little heavy. I only use it at night but what do yall think of the light version? Thanks a ton!
Hello everyone, I am looking for a sunscreen for my face that goes nicely under makeup. I have very dry and reactive skin. I do have mild rosacea that sometimes becomes sever acne rosacea. I have tried chemical sunscreens such as Lancome and La Roche Posay, but my skin doesn't tolerate them as well as it used to. I am allergic to an ingredient in Frist Aid Beauty and cannot use their products. I have looked at Josie Maran's SPF, but it contains beeswax and I am allergic to beeswax. Please keep in mind that I live in Canada and do not have access to a lot of sunscreens normally recommended such Drunk Elephant and MDSolarScience. Does anyone with rosacea and severely reactive and allergic prone skin have any recommendations? Preferably a mineral sunscreen. I am on a medication that makes me sensitive to the sun and has caused my skin issues (any my allergy to beeswax!) Therefore sunscreen is really important, and I am looking for one that will not affect the look of my foundation. Thank you!
Hey guys! I have dry and sensitive, acne-prone skin, and I'm always looking for new cleansing oils because I've not found my favorite yet. So far I've used The Face Shop Rice Water Cleansing oils and KOSE Softly Mu Cleansing oil which are more affordable. I've used BanilaCo Clean It Zero and Heimish Cleansing Balm, but I have a Newfoundland dog so his hair gets EVERYWHERE in products in tubs so I prefer pumps...hence a preference for cleansing oils. Thanks!
Hi! I was seeing if any ladies out there had some recommendations for products they have been using. I'm turning 25 in a few weeks, and looking for some new products. I have comination skin, acne-prone and scarring. Looking for day and night products! Thanks!
Hi everyone! I'm looking for a good face mask to use once a week, that will help control my acne and prevent further breakouts. I know there are a ton of good ones out there, just trying to find something that will FINALLY work for me! Thanks, y'all. I appreciate it
this is my first cystic acne breakout - and it's on my forehead and going on 3 months now. Healing as it goes - and then new ones emerge overnight. I've always been acne prone, and have a simple routine that helps any surface acne. I had my first cystic acne break out on my forehead/hairline (the ones that are big and deep where they take a long time to drain or shrink). I blame the period where I tried a bunch of new skincare, not remembering that my skin easily clogs (from thicker foundations too). It's not folliculitis cause they don't itch, and they aren't milia cause I had milia my entire life and I know the difference. Whatever exfoliation liquids or those "acne" pads I tried, they only irritated and made my bumps worse. And on top of that after 3 weeks, they gave me fine lines that I've never had before. So I really don't want to use them anymore. But I still have no idea what these bumps are. I'm on my third month. JUST as my forehead starts clearing up, NEW ones reform. My old simple routine that works with my dry dry sensitive skin: Aveeno intense moisture overnight cream (this cream saved my dry dry flaky skin for years now with no problem) bio oil for acne scars and rough skin Products I've tried to use for this bad breakout and the current bumps: Cosrx one step pimple clear pads (made it worse) Sonoma tea tree oil serum (made it worse) Arcona aftershave pads (I think made it worse) Aloe vera Gel (I used for a little bit, but the formula has parabens) Aloe vera leaves (wow it made me breakout a whole new fresh batch) Paula's choice CLEAR regular strength exfoliating solution (honestly it gave me fine lines. stopped it immediately) aztec clay mask w/ ACV (regulates it but is not helping) Mario drying lotion, and drying cream help bring them to a head. but that doesn't stop new ones from forming. Cosrx pimple patches (have worked very well to drain and bring some bumps to a head) Please - WHY is it when I'm starting to see improvement and a smoother surface, NEW acne reforms and the process starts all over again? This is the first time I'm experiencing this type of acne and even my close ones are like "why isn't your forehead healing at all?" I just bought probiotics today and hoping that it will work. But meanwhile, I really don't want to go to the term in case of any more "suggested" chemicals that will ruin my skin. please please please
My skin has been a mess for the past three months and I feel like I've tried everything. Any recommendations to clear my acne up would be so appreciated! Here's my current routine: AM: tone with Lush Tea Tree Water, Josie Maran argan whipped face butter, and the NARs tinted moisturizer spf 30 PM: wash with Youth to the people cleanser, Kate Somerville Anti Bac benzoyl peroxide treatment, and Ole Henriksen invigorating night creme OR Josie Maran light argan oil I have tried Paula's Choice 2% BHA, Belief aqua bomb, Ole Henriksen find your balance cleanser, Ole Henriksen find your balance toner, most Murad products (the post acne spot serum worked, but its recommended to stop use after 3 months), Tarte maracuja oil, Kate Somerville eradikate cleanser, Ole Henriksen invigorating night treatment, Ole Henriksen truth serum, etc. I feel like I've tried it all. I'm even on spironolactone which totally cleared my skin last year when I first started it. I did stop using a benzoyl peroxide/clindamycin treatment back in November that I was on for 10 years, but I wouldn't think it'd take 3 months for my skin to break out again. But my skin was clearest on spiro and benzoyl peroxide/clindamycin. So now I've introduced the Kate anti bac and have seen some results, however I'm so dry and still getting new break outs. I am desperate for any advice. I've spent these last 3 months with trial and error
Hi! I am using Dr. Dennis Gross Pell + Brigthen with Clinique acne solutions serum. Would those product work less because I use them together? And would actually this peel will make my skin Peeling? Thank you!!!!
Hello! I am looking for a new skincare routine and unsure if I should try the DRUNK ELEPHANT Day/Night sets or the SUNDAY RILEY New School Skincare Set (As they no longer sell Squad Goals) as I've heard amazing stuff for both. I am still a newbie and currently using a Korean skincare but I seem to keep breaking out now that I am older and almost done with it. My skin is sensitive, dry, now ACNE prone, blemish/ hyper-pigmentation spots and uneven skintone. Also I am turning 30 and want some anti-wrinkle skincare added to my routine. can anyone recommend on past experience, which one will help me the most! Thanks in advance!
Hi, Im looking to acne scars products that will work for acnes also, I have combo/oily skin , I have been getting so much breakouts recently and hyperpigmentation os horrible. I got it in control last yr. I was using a prescription topical cream 1% which is Adapalene, Im still using it now but i noticed its not working the same. I have been using Caudalie Vinoperfect Serum. I tried the Philosphy Microdelivery peel and it ripped my face off so I discontinued it. Then I tried the First aide Radiance Pads, i dont know if its working yet I only started using it 4days ago. By the wat I was using Glytone Brightening peel but it just too strong for my skin. So ive been in search for more than a year now. Please advice! Thank u!
I have so so many clogged pores on my face and I have no idea what to do. Does anyone know how I can get rid of them? I just started a new skincare routine today: 1) Simple Micellar Water 2) Clean & Clear Pore Cleansing Face Wash 3) Neutrogena Alcohol Free Toner 4) Hydrating Serum 5) Moisturizer ---- any thoughts on that?
I have fairly bad acne. I always get large cystic spots and it takes forever to go away. I'm looking for more of a high end brand that'll hopefully not only help with acne, but help with anti aging/ overall skincare and as strange as it is I like when it looks pretty on my counter Any suggestions (I was thinking "rose" by the fresh line but it seems more for moisturizing rather than acne).
Hi! I have a few questions and concerns about my skin 1- i have very bumpy skin. around my inner cheeks and my horehead, and near my nose. They are small bumps, most are skincolored, but some are red. Ive had them since I was 10, and nothing would help. I had acne early, since i was 9, and it was moderate. nothing severe. I just have these pesky bumps that do not go away no matter what i do. 2- I have dark spots on the side of my face. I was wondering how to get those to heal and have an even skin tone 3- I have acne scabs, so post acne scabs. I want to get rid of these overnight if possible. All i want is a clear, healthy, smooth,vibrant face. I prefer some advice on how to prevent these issues, and how to heal them naturally, using natural ingrediants and poducts, as i have very sensitive combination skin. My acne is not severe, it is moderate. Right now i am currently using: the body shop vitimin e cleanser, body shop vitimin e toner, body shop tea tree skin clearing clay mask, clarasonic mia2, mario badescu buffering lotion, mario badescu drying lotion, mario badescu enzyme cleansing gel, mario badescu drying cream. **I do not use these products every single day, i use my cleansers every day, my mask 2-3 times a week, and my mario badescu acne products when i need them. please help, i have been dealing with these issues for years now.
