I was wondering if there is a sunscreen product that I can spray on my head that will not make my hair look greasy. I know that a hat is a good solution, but i don't always have one handy, nor do I like the way I look with a hat on..
I have hereditary dark under eye circles and my skin runs dry. I am starting to have dull skin and I have included a pic of me with no makeup on. I know scary right! No not the pic but no makeup pic on the internet. I do not have major skin issues but it seems when I go into Sephora store and get color matched, I enjoy whatever they put on me. I end up buying it come home and put it on next day and boom it doesn't look as good. I cannot figure why my foundation looks like craip and as for the under eyes nothing seems to help at all.I think at one point if I could figure out a good under eye regimen then maybe i could get away with just that and a light BB cream or CC cream. I have tried Shisedo and I currently use ole Hendrickson cleanser to wash my face. I do like the Shisedo however it doesn't and wont truly correct the dark circles. I am so lost in this makeup world and I wish there was a company you could go to to sit down and address your makeup concerns and they teach you properly how to apply makeup and give you a rock solid routine for your skin type. Man what a great business idea. Anyways do you have any recommendations or anyone for that matter for my nude face with dark circles?? Please Help!!
No matter how hard I try I can never achieve truly flawless skin. As soon as I get close, I end up getting a pimple or a blackhead that leaves an ugly, dark scar. As much as I love makeup, concealer and whatnots...I really would like to take fresh face pictures. I would love to hear what you beauties use to help you during those hormonal phases so that you can keep flawless skin? I'm in my 30s and I've decided to try birth control pills just in an effort to achieve flawless skin.
I'm getting married in about 2 months and I'm looking for a good skincare regimen that I can do for the next 60days to help improve my skins oiliness, dark circles, anti aging and visible pores. It's my wedding and I want perfectly flawless skin on my wedding day, can someone please recommend a great skincare product for me?
I'm not someone who ever tans and I rarely use self tanner. However my face looks about a shade darker than the rest of my body with my makeup on (I can't find any medium coverage foundation that is light enough that I like. I'm considering trying Urban Decay's Naked Skin). So I used some self tanner. Unfortunately I did this right before bed and forgot to wash it off my hands. Well it turned my palms a dark bronze color. In between my fingers looks like I was eating a chocolate Popsicle and it dripped down and dried. I've washed and scrubbed but so far it might have only lightened it a shade. I tried scrubbing, hydrogen peroxide, and toothpaste (I read that on the internet). Any ideas? I used the Malibu Hemp Golden Glow.
I'm 33, have Light to Med. skin tone & Semi-Senitive Skin. I have been using Clinique All About Eye's & the Repair Wear Laser Focus Cream for years now. I just started using a concealer again (the Tarte waterproof ) but it is too dry for my under eye skin. SO, I bought the Nars Radiant Creamy Concealer & I tried it yesterday AND still have dry looking skin under my eye's (just not as bad) ! Looked like I had put concealer OVER poweder?! So what my 1st NEED is A GOOD, HYDRATING, EYE CREAM/TREATMENT! ANY SUGGESTIONS PLEASE? My 2ND NEED IS ANY SUGGESTIONS ON A SLEEPING MASK FOR HYDRATION & VITAMINS (maybe cell turn over too). (I'm digging the natural stuff since I have tried some of the oil's & Origins Nature's Dermabrasion, just an FYI but don't have to be!) *I have spoke w/ the Sephora Beauty Consultants & Origin's as well. Just a hard decision to make & wanted / NEEDED some opinions from the gal's who know what's up! BEEN WORKING ON THIS FOR 4/5 DAY'S AND SOOO MANY HR.'S I'M SO OVER IT! PLEASE HELP AS SOON AS POSSABLE! Thanks Ladies & Gent's (:
My skin care issue isn't really oiliness or dryness, it's texture. I have little barely visible bumps all over my face (mostly my chin and forehead). What skincare product should I use to even out the texture of my skin?
I was researching a few products from Perricone, and I was hoping to get opinions from anyone that has tried the skincare line. I've never used any Perricone products before, and my main skin concerns are fine lines, enlarged pores, and occasional breakouts. Listed below is what I'm currently interested in trying. Please let me know any thoughts on the products I listed, or if anyone has any other recommendations (either from Perricone or another brand). Thanks!
I had great results from the product, "Brazilian Peel." Will it be back? If not, what products are comparable? It saved me so much money! I can spread product on my face as well as an esthetician, and I can read a clock to remove on time!
Hi, I have a VIB rouge card with points all set up in the store, but when I log into my account online it asks me to become a beauty insider. I'm wondering if there is a way to merge the two so I can take advantage of the perks of being at the rouge level online? Thank you
On my nose I have big pores and they seem to be filled with white heads or dirty, how do I get smaller clean pores. I also have big pores on my inner cheeks. HELP!!!!!!!!! I also have uneven tone on my face!
I have been using PTR Mega Rich eye cream for years and loved it. I also started using Dr. Perricone Eye lift serum ( I love this) but I have been looking for a change in my cream. I have a terrible habit of sleeping on my side and at 28 I am starting to see the beginning of fine lines (AHHHHH) My face cream that i have been using for years has SPF 30 and I have decided to invest in SuperGoop antiaging spf 37 as my day eye cream. Any reccomendations for night time (thicker cream)? I was thinking Algenist or Kate Somerville.
How do I know if the SPF in a moisturizer or foundation is powerful enough to protect my skin from the sun? I use a separate moisturizer with SPF 30 and I don't rely on foundation as my only source of sun protection On Beautypedia, Paula and her team rates some foundations, BB creams, etc. as poor because it doesn't provide sufficient protection, even if it has SPF. I know that she isn't very well liked on BT and some of the sources that she uses are from the early 2000s. Help?
I developed very sensitive skin a few years ago (and "follicular eczema," where my hair follicles are effected), and I sometimes just can't express how frustrating it can be. As a person who loves trying different skincare products (and now loves beauty products), this was a kick in the stomach. Additionally, as many of us with sensitive skin know, there are so many things that can trigger a reaction -- a product, stress, weather, hormones, even environment -- and it can be very difficult sometimes to figure out what the source is in an attempt to stop the reaction. I'm currently on a "skin detox," where I've taken out everything but my Cetaphil cleanser and Simple moisturizer, to give me skin a break and to also allow me to slowly re-introduce my other products back in to see if one of them is causing my current reaction. Even then, this is a perfect science since it may not be a product at all and just stress/weather changes. Ugh! There is also the downside of having very few skincare products you can use -- what about those of us like me who want to do something about her large pores? Most anti-aging products are a "reaction-gamble," and I can't help but be concerned that we're more vulnerable to fatigued-looking skin as we get older due to how sensitive and easily-triggered our skin can be. I can't even count how many reactions I have, large and small, throughout a given year. I worry those add up over time. :-/
Hi ladies, I used to use aAlgenist eye cream. I noticed a weird wrinkle on each of my eyes so I stopped using it last week. Shockingly, it's going away. The cream may have been too strong. I picked up two samples: Nude Eye Renewal which is pretty new and Origins Ginzing. Origins got mixed reviews and I can't find anything on Nude. Anyone use it? anyone try both? I'd love to buy one on chic week. Thanks!
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've just started using the Josie Maran argan oil face wash/moisturizer combination and I LOVE it. I've had acne and resulting hyper pigmentation since I was in 5th grade, (I'm now 22) and this, along with beginning the use of clinique's even better foundation, seems to finally be making a difference! I know I should be wearing a sunscreen, any suggestions on what I should use so as not to counteract these things and will not leave my face looking like an oil slicK?
Hey ladies! I need a really great skincare routine! My skin is normal, I do have a problem with blackheads! I'm not sure when I need to start using anti-aging cream.. hopefully not for a while, but please help
I've seen a lot of people on here say that using a face oil can actually help reduce oil production for oily skin. Does it work? I'm really tempted to try it for the summer. Also, is coconut oil safe for the face? I've seen articles say that coconut oil has many uses (hair, nails, cooking), but I ran across an article that said it can clog pores. What do you think?
Hi, everyone! I was wondering if anyone had any suggestions for my dark spots left behind by past acne marks? Its all under my chin and sides of my face and nothing seems to work. I have tried the Kate Somerville Clarifying Treatment toner and other similar products but none have helped me. My skin is oily, I am 19, and I do wear sunscreen to protect the existing spots from getting darker
i really need you girls suggestions, i have sensitive, acne-prone, and combination skin, oily on t-zone but super dry on cheeks. i also have tons of blackhead, especially on my nose. i've tried my sister's mia 2 with sensitive brush every night, i does cleans my skin well, but the blackhead is still there, so i think the deep pore brush will do better with my blackheads, but sometimes even the sensitive brush is still kinda harsh for my sensitive and dry cheeks. i've heard that Luna is better for sensitive skin people, but i want the deep cleansing too to get rid of my blackhead which is clarisonic that i think will do better. so what do you think? which one that i should buy? sorry for my english, but thankss
I'm trying to decide btw the 2 but can't seem to do it I'm using Fresh umbrian clay mask right now, loved it at first, but starting to like it less for the price. I have combination skin, and my concerns are all of blackheads, white heads, occasional break outs on the cheeks and forehead, and exfoliation.. I also have red, sensitive skin has anyone tried both?
I bought three different 24k Donna Bella products from Hautelook recently because I thought it was a much less expensive way to try the brand. I tried one of the products the other night - the 24k Deep Facial Peeling. It left an awful gum residue on my face that actually balled up and got stuck on every facial hair on my lower jaw/chin area. I had to use alcohol to remove it. I am wondering if Hautelook sold expired or bad product? It is also a non-returnable final-sale item, and Hautelook is refusing to take it back. Has anyone else tried this product? If so, does it really do this, or did I get a bad product? I am now afraid to try the other products I bought because I have to wonder about their freshness/authenticity. Thanks!
There I was yesterday, minding my own business and putting on my shadow primer, when I realized that my eyelids look really, really wrinkly. I'm only 25, and I don't go in the sun or smoke, but they are like...badly wrinkled. They remind me of old lady hands, thin-looking and prune-y. I know a lot of eye creams are for under your eyes, the ones I'm using currently are at least. Should I grab a retinol product for this? What's recommended to help get rid of this and tighten up my lids?
I am turning 22 this summer, and am interested in taking better care of my skin. My skin is, for the most part, normal. Oily in the t-zone if anything, uncomfortable without moisturizer at least on the cheeks. So I have 3 concerns... 1. Sunscreen seems to break me out, so I don't wear it, but I know I need to be. I have tried mixing in face spf with my moisturizer, and I have tried origins vitazing... which also breaks me out.. what do you all recommend? 2. I have lots of blackheads! I use the Clarisonic, and I alternate between Salicylic acid wash in the morning, and benzoyl peroxide at night. I'm curious about glycolic acid and/or peels to help with this issue? 3. I need good skincare products for night time. I'm only 22, but want to prevent aging, and I also have dark circles under my eyes.
