I figured I should get started on my wife's Valentine's Day gift. I know she's looking for some kind of anti-aging overnight mask, but of course I have no idea what that means or where to find it. I was hoping someone could help me and recommend some brands that have worked for them.
So I was wondering if anyone has any recommendations on Murad skincare products. There are two reasons I ask this, one I recently got a 100 point perk of the hydro-dynamic quenching essence I believe it is called and love it. Second my holy grail face wash has been discontinued. It was Olay total effects anti blemish cleanser. I was thinking the Murad AHA/BHA cleanser might be a good match as it has salicylic acid in it and that is the one ingredient that keeps my hormonal breakouts at bay. It also has scrubby beads in it like the Olay one I loved. Any advice would be great!
I did some searching, but it appears all similar threads are pretty outdated and / or contain little helpful information for me. The pores on my nose are HUGE. It's a genetic thing. My mom and sisters have it too. It's not from aging or sun exposure, it's just a thing I've always had to deal with. It has always bothered me. I use the strips to keep them deep cleaned and mattifying moisturizer, but it's still an uphill battle. I did a product search, but there are so many. So I was curious if anybody out there has any personal experience with any of them and could point me in the right direction. Thanks in advance!
I have dark circles under my eyes and have been using lotion from loreal and concealer. It doesn't seem to be working. What is the best cream to correct dark circles. I would love some day to not rely on using concealer thanks Roxy demo
Having pretty nice results from tretinoin - the only issue is that my makeup and/or tinted moisturizer appears to just sit on top of the dead skin that is left behind. I've tried my Clarisonic, a washcloth, and Exfolikate on separate occasions and nothing seems to really slough off all that skin. I'm moisturizing with FAB Ultra Repair Cream and Glossier Priming Moisturizer, depending on how dry I'm feeling. Any recs for a good exfoliator to get all of the gunk off? Perhaps a good treatment toner with glycolic acid or something similar?
I'm 23 years old, and have been looking for some sort of antioxidant serum to incorporate in my normal/dry skincare routine, other than my Clinique lotion+ moisturizer, Clinique toner, Clinique All About Eyes eye cream, and the occasional use of the First Aid Beauty Facial Radiance Pads.I have been using the Ole Henriksen Truth Serum, but OMG it breaks me out so badly every single time. I can't figure out what causes it, but the breakouts are large whitehead bumps on my forehead that are painful. I know, graphic. Any suggestions for my skincare routine are gladly welcomed!
Do you agree with her views on skincare products? I'm on a hunt for my Summer night serum & moisturizer. I think I'm going to purchase the Perricone Blue Plasma even though it stinks so bad of fish & I hate fish. I've been researching products a lot and one of the sites I was on was Paula's Choice. She is not a fan of the serum... Actually the more I read through her "beautypedia" reviews, it seems like she's not a fan of a lot of products. I also got a feeling she was mainly trying to push her own products and Olay. Examples: - She's against treatment cleansers since it's just "washed down the drain". I have to disagree with this. When I use a treatment cleanser, although they can be drying, I do see improvement in my breakouts. - Witch Hazel is bad. I find witch hazel to be an important ingredient when choosing a toner. She think it's just as bad as alcohol if not worse. Products she gave a "poor" rating to: - Anthony Logistic's Glycolic cleanser got a poor rating because it doesn't contain any glycolic acid. - doctor dennis gross's A/B pads since we can just skip step 2 by simply splashing water on our face to deactivate step 1. - Dior Capture Totale One Essential Serum because it's not a "miracle serum" since it's primarily just "water, slip agents, and alcohol" - ExfoliKate - Just about every Ole Henriksen product I love - Origins Checks & Balances, Charcoal Mask & every other decent product from them - Most Murad products I do agree with a few points she makes, like companies need to stop putting active ingredients in clear vials so the sun doesn't break down the properties of the treatment. Also jar packaging is a big no-no for her. I understand that some creams are too thick to be put in a pump, but what about those airless jars that Bosica & Dermadoctor are using? I hate sticking my fingers in jars & the air does break down the active ingredients over time... Overall though, I don't think I'll be going to her site when I'm researching a new product I want to try.
I read that under exfoliating causes milia, which I've been getting in the last year. But I am worried about over exfoliating. What is the harm in exfoliating too much? I use a Clarisonic with deep pore brush, but not every day. I also use a scrub once in awhile and masks. I have pretty resilient skin.
okay so i'm deciding between fresh's peony spot correcting brightening essence OR korres's wild rose vitamin C active brightening oil? do you recommend anything else that's available at sephora? thank you!!!
Back in the day of Color Me Beautiful, I was told I'm a Spring. My mom tells me I definitely have warm undertones, but they're pink and not yellow. However, then I read the guidelines/tests online and they seem to contradict that. My skin is fair with a pink undertone, which would indicate cool. My veins on my wrists are also blue, but some days they look green. I have light green eyes and blonde hair. I don't tan, just burn very easily then peel. Yet I can wear most all colors except orange, olive green, chartreuse, white and gray. They all wash me out. I can wear most anything from jewel tones to pastels. Gold jewelry looks way better on me than silver. Silver washes me out. So what am I? Neutral warm? I'm so confused.
Hi guys! i need some advice, i have texture on my chin and forehead, it's little bumps but they are NOT acne, blackheads or white heads! its just texture i also have them under my eyes more towards the inner corner! i use the Dr. Dennis gross extra strength peels twice a week, i used them everyday for a month and then went down to twice a week they have totally transformed my skin but didn't get rid of the bumps! i use my clarisonic a few times a week with the first aid beauty wash and i use the ole henriksen walnut exfoliator when i feel like i need it (usually once a week maybe twice). I have combo to dry skin. please help!!
Hi, I just used the Bliss "that's incredipeel glycolic resurfacing pads 2 days ago, and my skin has lots of bumps breaking out all over. It seems to me that it has caused this as I have not changed anything else. I've not used it again. On the packaging they recommend to use it every day. Is this just my skin purging and regenerating? Is this typical? Do you have any recommendations?
My skin is completely clear, not dry, not oily. My only issue are these bumps all over my chin that resemble nothing like acne or black heads. They're just bumps of clogged pores. Just wondering if anyone had a clue as to how to get rid of them! Thanks.
Hi I am wondering if anyone can offer me any advice please. A few weeks I developed dark marks on my face. The marks appear over my top lip & on both cheeks. After seeking the advice from a dermatologist.. I have been told it is called MELASMA. Apparently my body is producing too much melanin. Is there any way that I can reduce the appearance? It is very noticeable & it is making me feel miserable.
Okay sooo, I have pretty oily skin for the most part mainly just in my T-zone I get pimples but my skin is generally pretty clear....but I also have this weird patch of skin probably the size of a 50 cent piece on my right cheek bone where I start my contour, that makeup WILL NOT stick to. Ive tried primers, pore fillers, exfoliating, everything I can possibly think of and no luck. I am really hoping I'm not the only one with this issue! If anyone has any advice, please send it my way. I'm currently using the Makeup forever Mat velvet foundation and i put it on with a foundation brush and a damp beauty blender (I know I know why would you use a damp blender when you have oily skin but its the only thing that somewhat helps with that stupid patch) It isn't dry skin, it is pretty porous. I am thinking my best bet is to see a dermatologist on this.
I have very fair skin that requires fragrance-free, non-comedogenic makeup. I have dark circles under my eyes and brown spots and red spots. I don't want heavy make-up; I like natural, light makeup. Help!!
Background: I'm in my early 20's, dry sensitive skin. Pretty clear for the most part. Some redness every now and then. I'd like a "brighter" complexion. My current skincare routine: 1. Lush "Angels on Bare Skin" (day time) Night time: If I wore makeup I use Clinique "Take off the Day". 2. Clairsonic + Purity 3. Lush "Eau Roma" toner water 4. May Coop Raw Sauce 5. Serum - previously Philosophy 6. Clinque "Repairwear Anti Gravity" eye cream 7. Belief Aqua Bomb - just using a sample, will switch out soon. What I'm looking for: The serum can't have aloe vera in it's ingredients as I've always had a hunch I have a sensitivity to it. I had previously been using Philosophy's When Hope Is Not Enough but I feel it irritated my skin due to the aloe. I'd also like something to prevent aging, calm the skin, and promote a brighter, more even complexion. I'd really appreciate any suggestions you may have. I know there are some seasoned skin care experts here and would love to hear your thoughts! Thank you for taking the time to read this
In the process of curating my skincare products this year, I acquired a ton of samples -- foil and deluxe -- that I don't want to go to waste. However, my skin seems pretty happy with what I'm using now and I'm nervous about introducing a bunch of new products to it on a frequent basis. My skin is a bit sensitive, but I'm not prone to horrible breakouts. Any negative reactions I have tend to lean towards the "someone sprayed me with acid" look. Thankfully that's only happened a handful of times. Anyone else have this problem? If so, what did you do? Thanks in advance!
All right friends, I have some intense, problematic dark circles happening. I'm talking to the point where they are peeking out from under my concealer! So I'm asking for some help and guidance! What are some products for the under eye area that you have tried that truly help at calming down the harsh discoloration of some gnarly dark circles? It can be creams, masks, home remedies, anything so long that you have tried it and it actually works!
I need to know the best product for fading or completely getting rid of stretch marks that are reddish purple in colour. They're on my thighs and hips, I am very fair skinned so it is super noticeable. Haaaalp.
HI. I am looking for a good moisturizer for the winter. I have combination skin (oily around my T zones). I want something for uneven skin tone and something to give me a glow. With the weather change I have noticed my skin take a turn and it doesn't have that glow that it once had. I am noticing tiny tiny pimples, randomly, on my face. What's a good day moisturizer and night moisturizer I can use with my type of skin? Thanks!
Hi all! Now that its winter by skin is so pale and im always being asked if im feeling alright! I dont want to tan, and i do try bronzer but i always end up looking orange ( doesn't matter the shade) any tips and tricks so i look more fresh and glowing!? Thanks!!
Hello out there! Just looking for a great primer that really gets rid of redness on my face. Something that tones it down where the redness doesn't show through my foundation. Thanks for your feedback! Much appreciated.
My face is very rough and textured, and I break out quite a bit. I don't drink pop or sugary drinks. I am oily on my nose half the time but the other half I am dry and flaking. I was wondering if there were any products to help make my skin less rough, and to moderate the switching between oily and dry.
