GLO Brilliant™ Personal Teeth Whitening Device
  I purchased this last week, and it arrived today.  I will do a multi-post review on this item since there seems to be limited information related to this product, and most reviews are a few years old.    Product arrived in the typical Sephora shipment box.  The kit is packaged nicely in a blue box, and the device comes in a zippered case.  Everything arrived intact, and the device is currently charging. Instructions, and other reviews I have watched online say the charging will take about 4 hours.  First impressions, the zippered case was a nice touch and I like that everything is in one place.

Physical sunscreen comparison
Hi, i'm looking to switch to a physical sunscreen as I understand it's supposed to be more stable and last longer (and who seriously reapplies every 2 hours if they wear makeup!).   I have combo skin which tends to become oily halfway through the day. I'd be wearing it over a moisturiser or at least serum. Then Estee Lauder's double wear on top using a beauty blender.   Ideally it's not greasy, won't cause breakouts, safe to use around the eyes, doesn't have the stupid sparkle effect (why do companies think women like this?!) and makeup goes on over it well. I don't care if it has a ghosting effect in photos, and aren't really concerned with anti-aging benefits as i'll get that from my moisturiser.   If anyone's used the following, can you please let me know how they wear and compare if possible. Suggestions of other products are welcome.    - Clinique's City Block Sheer: I tried this on my hand instore and it has a nice light texture. - Tarte's Tarteguard: also tested this, texture's ok but it has a sheen. It didn't seem  too obvious so I could be okay with that if it's otherwise the best one. - Coola's Mineral Face Matte Finish or Tint - Dr Dennis Gross Dark Spot Defense - Drunk Elephant Umbra Sheer Physical Defense   Thanks!

Best facial oils, why and how do you use them?
I've noticed a lot of facial oils on people want lists (for sales, for wish list).  And, amazingly many of the most coveted are around $100 and sold out on the Sephora site.  Sephora's selection of face oils also seems to have grown a lot over the past 6 to 8 months.   So, which face oils are people loving and why?  How are you using them?  They seem to work for both dry and oily skin but are certain ones seeming to work better with specific skin types?   Thanks!

Skin help.... Multiple issues.
I've never had 'good skin'. I have a number of issues that prevent me from ever wanting to leave the house /without/ makeup. I'm looking for something that can help combat the issues I do have- And, It doesn't have to be just a single product. I wouldn't expect it to be. But, My concerns are as follows, Organized from the highest concern, to the least. The main problem I have is all of the 'scaring' on my cheeks. I don't know if I could actually call them scars, Because they don't have any depth. They are just marks left over from acne- But, the discoloration bothers me. I've attached a photo- But, The camera didn't quite pick up how bad it actually is. Anyways! My other main issue is dark circles. They aren't puffy, They *are* slightly sunken in, and the discoloration is more than obvious. Even underneath makeup. I have the beginning of fine lines and...Anything that could help both of those problems would be highly sought after.   Third, And final issue is that of pores. I have slightly enlarged pores, And.. A serum or some such that could help reduce them, I'd also be interested in.   For anyone who helps me on this issue- Thank you so very much. Its something I've dealt with for a while.

Thoughts on Paula's Choice?
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.

New To Skin Care At 37
Help. Im 37 and have never had a skin care regime and have no clue where to start. I have combination skin with acne. Acne cleansers are to harsh and dry my skin.  Over the counter exfoliants dry my skin. But my skin gets really oily throughout the day (even while being dry - didn't know that was possible).  I can see the fine lines under my eyes and around my lips and can tell the elasticity in my skin is fading. Where do I start for a basic face/eye/lip/neck routine?

Milia on eyelids
A few days ago, a makeup artist did a makeover for me and she used face primer (those silicone type) on my eyes. I was horrified but I didn't want to say anything in case she felt insulted since she's the one who studied makeup.. Now I'm really regretting because I have milia on my eyelids. How can I get rid of them (without extractions)?   On a side note: I gave my friend the Too Faced shadow insurance to use as an eye primer but she ignored it and went ahead to use her own face primer on my eyes. Makeup artists.. do you feel offended if your client gave you their own products to use? I previously told the makeup artist that my skin was extremely sensitive and prefer to use my own products..

Anyone Try The 24k Donna Bella Products That Were On Hautelook?
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!

Skin Care Products for Skin Cancer
I was just diagnosed with Basal Cell Carcinoma (a skin cancer) on the bridge of my nose. I have to have it removed on May 12 and I would like to know the best products I can use to lessen the appearance of the scar, and to protect my skin from future sun damage. It is a very small spot and the doctor said he will make the cut go sideways so it will blend in with any natural wrinkles I have. I'm 56 and don't have many wrinkles yet but I really would like to minimize the scar as it heals. I would also like to find a foundation/moisturizer with an SPF of at least 30.  I prefer something completely natural.   Thank you for any suggestions and recommendations.

here's where to find those exfoliating foot peel masks in Canada
There was a thread not that long ago about those asian exfoliating foot peel masks and since seeing it and discovering that (thanks to whoever initially posted about it!) I just knew I had to buy it. I just thought that my Canadian gals would like to know that I found a box at Pharmaprix in Quebec (otherwise known as Shoppers in the rest of Canada) for pretty cheap. The internet told me that Shoppers carried a brand called Footner, but that's not what I found. But I did find "Feet Treat Pedi" by "Look Beauty" and the box says it was made in Korea. It was 10$. I got the last two boxes. It has the same directions as all the other ones: soak feet, wear for 60-90 mins, rinse feet. Feet start peeling in a few days.   I'll either try it tonight or tomorrow night. I'm kind of excited but scared I'll go nuts and peel all my skin off. I just hope its as good as the real deal. I guess I'll know in about a week.

Recommendations for under-eye products
Hello, I'm 34 with fairly normal skin. It used to be oily but has changed in past few years to normal (and VERY slightly sensitive, though not enough to really be a concern.) What I'm looking for is something to address my under-eye wrinkles which have developed in the past year. I've had forehead wrinkles for quite some time but recently saw lines looking like crows feet and some wrinkling that goes from under eye are to top of cheeks. It's kind of hard to explain, sorry! I also have a lot of dark spots from sun damage. I do not have issues with puffy eyes or dark circles. I have used retinols and glycolic acids on & off infrequently over the past 10 years, as well as light moisturizers. What I've used so far in the past 2 years to address my current issues have not worked well: Peter Thomas Roth Camu Camu brightening mask (great hydration but did nothing for my dark spots and wrinkles) Philosophy renewed hope in a jar: did not minimize wrinkles at all, Ole Henriksen 3 little wonders: making my under eye area VERY dry and seeming to deepen the wrinkles there. Long story short, I need something to hydrate my under-eye area and give me anti-aging benefits, and would love a multi-tasking product for my dark spots as well. Any suggestions are welcome and thank you so much for reading my long post!

I need an eye cream.......
I normally have oily skin but for the last month my eyes have been really dry. The inner corner of my eye lid and the outer corner of my lash line stings, especially after washing my face. My inner eye lids also flakes if I don't put some kind of cream or oil on it. This hasn't happened to me before so I am not sure of the reasons why. I haven't changed my skincare routine other than using the Tarte C-brightener eye cream, but only after my eye started getting dry/ flaky/stingy.  I need an eye cream I can use both on my lids & under eye to help moisturize my lids and under eye, to prevent it from flaking.

Negatives from retinol/ retinoids?
I've just started using Sunday Riley's Luna oil, which has retinoids in it.  I use it maybe once a week, but only for a few weeks. I don't have sensitive skin but AHAs are an immediate and noticeable issue. I used the Luna oil last night and this morning my skin has a few red blotches, a bump and some other spots.  It could be totally unrelated to the Luna oil so I don't want anyone to assume the oil is a bad one!!!  And everyone's skin reacts differently to different ingredients (if this oil has any AHAs in it…then that would be the issue for me, probably not the retinoids). I've uses retinoids/retinol a few times in the past but rarely, so am not sure of the potential related problems my skin could have. Does anyone have input or insights as to what bad effects could retinoids have on skin?   Like I said, it might not be Luna causing the problems or it could be that my skin can't handle an ingredient.  But I thought I'd ask. My skin has a red spot, a few small bumps and this odd patchy area by my temple.   Thanks!
