Texture underneath my eyes?
I recently have been noticing small skin colored tiny bumps (5 or so) right under my lower lash line. Since they itch from time to time, I believe it's dry skin. I use my Clarisonic probably every other night and it's been doing an "okay" job of removing the similar types of texture on my face. I do not have acne or oily skin; but normal with dry patches rarely under my nose and eyes. Since my Clarisonic can't really reach right under my lash line without me cleaning my eyeball as well, is there any thing someone can recommend to get this crap gone!? I have a Clinque eye gel that I've been using. I also wear contacts and all the constant touching and tugging on my eyes is literally making me get crows feet at age 20. lol.  HELP.    P.S. This picture really creeps me out, so I apologize in advance.

Best holiday skin care sets: I want to try something new
I'm a skin care fanatic.  I only really got into makeup a few years ago but skincare has always been a focus.  Looking through all of the holiday sets (skincare) and what great values they seem to be I thought maybe I should try some new brands.  Buying skin care…well…it isn't like I won't use it!   So, does anyone have suggestions for which holiday sets I should try?   My skin is dry and rarely breaks out.  I use Kate Somerville, Philosophy and all the samples I get but haven't tried most of the Sephora skincare brands.  Best values?  Best skin care?   Thanks!

Help with mystery burning, itching, welts ! Maybe Castor oil reaction?
Last week I tried two new products : Phyto huile d'ales and AS I am coconut co wash,  I slept overnight in the  Phyto. A day later the tops of my ears started burning intensely and itching, , 2 days later I used the coconut co wash. this reaction continued all last week until i felt my scalp get uncomfortable , dry itchy, and my face red with welts. I thought it was the Phyto product because it has castor oil and I was reading some have reaction to castor oil because it naturally contains ricin toxin. Yesterday, used the coconut co wash for the second time , not realizing it also contains castor oil. Today the welts spread to my neck, shoulders, chest, essentially everywhere my hair touches.  I washed my sheets 2 days ago as to not contaminate, if it is the cause of these products.  Help, has anyone experienced reactions like this to these great products or castor oil? It is super painful and hydrocortisone doesn't effect, but borage oil helps with  rash and redness.

Any eye cream recommendation?
So I was using Avon Anew Genic eye cream and it was fine, just not my favorite eye cream. And then, almost overnight, it started to make my skin all itchy and dry. I can even see horizontal lines under my eyes, which I know is not good and probably a sign that I need extra moisture!   So do you have any eye cream recommendation for a 34 year old like me? Thanks!

Facial oils
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?

Share your microdermabrasion stories!
So, I finally called to get an appointment for a microdermabrasion treatment! I have been wanting to do it for as long as I can remember! I have acne scars that are not hyper pigmented, but I have holes all over my cheeks (like giant pores) that not amount of primer or foundation can cover!    Any stories (good or bad) to share?

Glycolic moisturizer with less than 5% for sensitive,combo/ dry skin rec's?
Hi,   I have sensitive skin with broken capillaries on the cheeks, slightly oily t-zone and dry cheeks. Years ago I used NeoStrata Level 1 which has approximately 2% glycolic acid. They don't make this product anymore. I used the product once a week and tested along my jaw line and slowly built it up to other areas. Eventually use the product once a week. My skin felt great.   Does Sephora carry a glycolic moisturizer with a low percentage? Any rec's for someone with sensitive skin? Thanks!

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.

Have Some Questions "Real Quick Plse" a/b theBalm
Hey Guy's & Doll's, I have a question about a cpl of theBalm face washes. I bought the radiance pad's from FAB like suggested but thought I could maybe add a face wash for my PORE CRISIS !   Can anyone PLEASE tell me real quick which 1 would be the best  for my Clogged Pores on Nose & in General : 1. Rose Face Cleanser - Normal to Dry Skin 2.  Lavender Foaming Face Cleanser - All skin types 3. Coconut Milk Cleansing Face Cream - Norm. to  dry 4. Rose Face Cleanser - Normal to Combination Skin   #1 & #4 are the same for targeted treatments : Rose Face Cleanser for normal to combination skin will gently exfoliate the skin with glycolic and alpha hydroxy acids, while removing makeup and impurities. In addition to the numerous well known benefits of the glycolic and alpha hydroxy acids, the gel texture of this cleanser leaves the pores feeling refreshed and tight .   #2 Lavender Foaming Facial Cleanser is effective and non-drying. Soy proteins nourish by providing depleted skin with a rich source of mineral salts, amino acids and peptides   #3 TimeBalm Coconut Milk Face Cleansing Cream gently removes dirt and makeup that is trapped in the pores, without stripping your skin of its natural nutrients and moisture. Lactic acid works to polish the dull outer layers of the skin.

Getting rid of puffy under eyes
For as long as I can remember I've had puffy under eyes. I don't really have issues with dark circles as much as general puffiness.   I know it doesn't help that I tend to pound water right before I go to sleep - something I've been doing since I was very little. So I'm willing to accept what that creates but would love any ideas or products that can quickly eliminate under eye puffiness and tighten that skin back up.

Skin Care Regimen for oily, post-acne skin?
What are a few awesome products from Sephora for a complete   skin care regimen to help someone with post-acne scars/discoloration or dark spots/oily skin in order to brighten up and even out the skin's tone and texture?   I don't get acne anytime during the month EXCEPT when it's "that time" of the month, so that is not my main concern. It's more about the acne I had when I was younger and the discoloration and unevenness it has left on my skin. Just looking for something to brighten, even out, and smooth my skin out!   I'm thinking exfoliator, peel, moisturizer, cleanser? Thoughts? Thank you!

I generally have oily skin.  I also have open pores and they get clogged with sebum.  I have tried multiple cleansers and they just don't seem to be able to clean out my pores.  The only way is when i take a "hot shower" and remove it gently with my finger scraping my skin.  I know I shouldn't be doing this but when i put on powder or blush you can see the residue from the clogged pores. I have tried mary kay; 2 different types of cleansers, boscia; 2 different types; etc... I need help. Please advise Thank you'

help! Severe Hyper pigmentation Problem!
Hello there! So my aunt, who's probably in her 40's, has some pretty severe hyper pigmentation on her neck! She's constantly embarrassed about it and she has tried many products. Unfortunately I can't list any of them since I don't know and has even gone to a dermatologist... and that has failed. From what I know she has used only lotions and gels. I am hoping for some of you beauty lovers to have an idea or a cure or even know someone who has been able to overcome it and recommend what they used. She's pretty desperate at the moment on trying to get rid of it.   to have an idea on what her hyper pigmentation looks like I will link some photos below (not her but what it sort of looks like). Just try to imagine this all on the front of a neck... There isn't anything graphic just a picture of a neck and cheek if you were wondering!   https://escholarship.org/uc/item/4580r7rs/1b.jpg http://3.bp.blogspot.com/-3BbOj5vt2zA/TkEF2sDjL9I/ AAAAAAAAAE0/rNQg5-PR4yQ/s1600/acanthosis-nigricans ...   Please help!

disaster after eyebrow waxing
I let my 12 yr old daughter get her eyebrows shaped a few months ago, and Sunday we went to have it done again.  This time, a lot of her skin was torn off, and is red.  What can we do to soothe this a little more, and/or make it heal faster?     Why would this happen now after she's had it done before?  Someone told me her acne medicine could be the culprit, but she doesnt really rub it on her eyes.  How can this be prevented?

.A Tell of A Thouand Pores & A Battered Nose
SO, I have noticed some changes ( those wonderful "changes" ) to my skin over the past year. A slow and depressing scene. I will pass through all the phases ( as I tend to get long winded ) & skip straight through to last night. OMGoodness     I looked in the " No-No " mirror & Ta' Da, to my dismay there were a gazillion pores ( I can already unusually see w/ a normal mirror)....CLOGGED w/ gunk. A task NO mask, scrub, or "bump juice" could defeat.  So yes, I broke out my extractor  & commenced to de-gunking myself/ nose. I have GOT to get my skin back on track & quick! I already feel not so pretty due to other things changing & now this!   * I need something preferably w/ no silicone's that can whip my pores / skin back into shape fast w/ long term benefits. * I have masks, exfoliators, & polishers. I have never purchased or looked at things for such an issue so I have no clue what is best. *   I do have a deluxe sized tube of the Dior Skin Perfect Pores formula thing'e ( the one that look's as though it only comes in a kit w/ little to no info). Idk if it's any good, suitable for my dry & can be sensitive skin, and exactly what if anything it could /would do for me [my pores/ nose].   Any suggestions?
