Looking for advice for a new skincare routine. My routine since I was a teen has been face wash, moisturizer, sunscreen and drink lots of water. I've never invested much and my skin has always been fine, until now. Recently I've noticed a few lines on my forehead and redness/ruddiness on my cheeks (next to my nose only). I've trolled the BT boards and am totally overwhelmed! I'd love some advice. I have normal to dry skin that is sensitive to strong products. I'd like to lose these forehead wrinkles. I've become obsessed with checking out other people's foreheads ever since I noticed mine. Please help!
Hey all, I am in my late 20s and have dry, dehydrated skin that tends to get dull, greyish looking from time to time. I also have some old acne spots and hyperpigmentation spots that I want to lighten. For the spot lightening, I have been using the Caudalie Vinoperfect Radiance serum which seemed to noticeably help for the first 3 weeks, but now I don't see much of a difference. This is something weird I've noticed about my skin in general. It tends to reach a constant state after a while Anyway, some of my acne scars (esp the newer ones) have lightened a bit so I'll continue to use the above serum. However, I would really like to incorporate some products that would help brighten the skin overall, and maybe also aid the scar lightening along the way. My skin looks really lack lustre sometimes Enlisting my routine here in case it helps: Morning: Skip the cleanser in the morning usually, or use Fresh Soy Cleanser if feeling greasy OH Truth serum, followed by Caudalie Vinoperfect Radiance serum Eye cream with SPF: OH or Supergoop OH Advanced hydration moisturizer Supergoop SPF 30 sunscreen serum Evening: Clinique Take the day off balm + flannel Caudalie Vinoperfect Radiance serum Occasionally: Hydraluron serum Tata Harper Repleneshing Nutrient Complex as face oil + eye serum Origins Night-A-Mins cream Also, I exfoliate a couple of times a week with Dermadoctor Wrinkle Revenge Cleanser with 12% glycolic acid. Is this not enough? Also, masks include Origins Charcoal mask, Drink Up intensive mask, Sephora Pearl Brightening Mask. Looking forward to suggestions, please!
So Algenist has this new deep wrinkle serum and I used it for two weeks now. I got a one week sample from a friend that works for Algenist and the results were amazing! I ordered this full size a week ago and the results are unbelievable! My late husband would have gone crazy over this. So who else has bought it and tried it? This is my first thread I've posted so bear with me! Tell me how much you love there products please! Have a great day! Donna
Hi beauties! I’m looking for a night cream to help with anti-aging, fine lines, and loss of firmness/elasticity. I just turned 30 and feel I should add in an anti-aging aspect to my skincare routine. I’m looking at the Algenist brand, but can’t decide which cream to buy. Anyone have any opinions on which one is better? I’m open to any other recommendations as well! Thanks!
I'm 16, but I'm already seeing forehead lines from stress. Is there anyway to remove them? or make them less noticeable? My mom gave me some of the stuff she uses for anti-aging but It doesn't seem to be helping.
Hi Everyone, My mom turned 50 last year so she is aging. Her concerns are sagging and age spots. She also has dry skin. We live in a desert climate so moisture is difficult for us to retain. What are some good anti-aging products and a good moisturizer for to start her with? Thank you!
Hello! So I am in my late 20s and have more fine lines on my forehead/around my eyes then I would like (and more than my peers). I have normal skin with some dryness around my eyes and I tend to have sensitive skins (there are a few companies I can't even use because my skin freaks out and I get a huge rash all over my face- none from sephora yet) anyway, I am trying to find a product that will help with the fine lines without making my skin freak out. I loved the sample I had of the Sunday Riley eye cream (and I think it works wonders) but it made my skin feel like it was burning after a few days. Right now I use the tarte vitamin c eye cream and I like it for my dark circles okay but I'm not attached to it. Any suggestions would be wonderful (serums, creams, cleansers- anything) (I've also tried FAB eye products, 2 clique serums & the philosophy hope is not enough) Currently I use FAB as my regular skin routine w/ the tarte eye cream & maracuja oil @ night around my eyes as well to help with the dryness. Thanks!
Hello It seems the PTR Un-Wrinkle Peel Pads are no longer available on the Canadian Sephora website! I recently started using them and am in love - already my skin seems more even-toned and it really seems to help my skincare products get better absorbed. Does anyone have any recommendations for something similar? I'm going to stop by a Sephora store when I get a chance and see if they still carry it there, but I prefer to do my shopping online Thanks <3
I am 43 My facial skin, is very sensitive. Highly allergic to Retinols and SPF. I have some wrinkles around my eyes, slight dark circles under my eyes. My facial skin, has blotchy redness. Looking for a moisturizer, that I may use day and night, plus a eye cream. Please Help,
Hi Everyone! I have been using Sunday Riley and I love it. I am just currently using the Ceramic Slip Cleanser, Bionic, Good Gene and Luna Oil. I am wanting to add in an oil for the day as my skin can be dry on my cheeks and around my eyes and the outer sections of my forehead....yet my nose and the "main" forehead area are sometimes oily (not always). I occasionally get a pimple but not too often...like maybe once every other month. I will be moving to a climate that is warm all year round (and humid) and I will be there for at least a year so I am thinking my skin will be less dry soon (possibly...as my skin changes a lot now with hormones). I am in my 30s. I am wanting to make sure what I use promotes collagen growth or firmness and will therefore be a bit anti-aging. I have read up on both Artemis and Flora. They both sound great. I cannot decide which one would be best. I am having so much trouble....so my questions are: 1. Are they both anti-aging? 2. What have others found for results on these both? 3. Are they both ok for day wear? I use Luna at night and I just looooooovvvvvvvveeee Luna! Would either be too heavy for daytime? Thanks in advance for anything anyone can add to my query. I am actually leaning towards Artemis but I am just not sure. I am leaning this way purely because I prefer lemony scents versus rose. I am going to go try these oils at my local Sephora sometime next week but I really think I should go for the one that will actually add to my anti-aging regime but I am also thinking that Artemis sounds like it may be lighter for daytime use? Argh!!! This is so hard to choose! (I would buy both but I think that I should just try one and see how I go)!
Help help! I'm turning 32 on Sunday, and I've noticed my skin all of a sudden starting to change. I know I need a new "system" - especially since I never really adopted a skin care system to begin with. I have a combination of normal and dry areas on my face, with some new rough patches popping up. I did one of those skin analysis machines a few weeks ago, and it showed that I have some clogged pores around my nose area, and hormonal patches high by my cheekbones on both sides and my chin (whether this skin analysis was even legit, I don't know...it wasn't by Sephora though!). I'm also worried about these little lines that are all of a sudden appearing around my eye area. I absolutely love my Sephora store, but I haven't had much luck with the skin care specialists in my store. They don't really listen to what my concerns are (bleh). So any help would be much appreciated!! I'm getting married in a year and need my skin in tip top shape!!
I moved to London a year ago, and the hard water/pollution/allergies have aged me fast! I'm 33 with some lines on my forehead, the occasional breakout, some sun damage and acne scars looking to even texture, minimize lines, get back my glow.
Hi BT gals, have been on the lookout for a good serum/oil for my normal to dry skin with some old dark spots. Have been eager to try out Caudalie since I've been hearing tons of good stuff about it, and want to try stuff that doesn't have too many silicones in it. Eager to hear about any favorites from that range, or any other
Hi everyone, I am trying to decide what peel to buy. I am looking for something to smooth my rough skin texture; I also have a few acne scars and sun spots. After reading reviews, I am trying to decide between the following but am open to other suggestions. I am trying to stay around $50 and under. -REN glycol lactic radiance renewal mask -Murad Intensive-C radiance peel -Ole Henriksen lemon strip flash peel Thanks for any advice you may have!
Hi ladies, I've been trying out the Algenist complete eye renewal balm for 2.5 months now, and been using it religiously every day. I haven't noticed the slightest improvement in my under-eye lines, rather they seem to have increased in number. Am not saying that the eye cream caused the increase, but it didn't help either. I'll still finish it but was really hoping for a recommendation from someone who has had actual results along these lines! I am ok with any creams or serums or oils - anything that shows visible results. I am 28 yrs old and have dry skin. It's less dry in the summer of course. Is it time to start retinol under the eyes? I really don't want the lines to get any worse. Please advise!
So I have been doing my research and I was wondering what others are using for their anti-aging routine. I am late 30s and I am concerned with lines around the eyes and mouth. I also get puffiness under the eyes. I have been researching several brands but after a while you start going crazy with what works, what you should use, what brands are good, etc, etc. I was interested in Radical., Sunday Riley and Peter Roth and a few others at Sephora, but I was wondering what people are finding with results. Also, do you have to use retinol or vitamin C? I was getting a facial and she gave me some samples of some cream that has growth factors and a serum with Vitamin C.....and yet with the products I was looking at I was now confused by her as to what I should be looking for. I am now so confused about what types of products I should be using. Any advice from you guys would be great as I want to make sure I am using the right thing on my face. Do I need stem cells? Do I need growth factors? Do I need vitamin C? Any advice or results you have had I would love to hear about it. Thanks in advance everyone!
I'm sure this has been asked before...and I tried to use the search function, I really did, but it gave me a headache and now I'm over it. So, having procured a free sample of PTR retinol serum, I now find myself afraid to apply it. I have sensitive skin and many products are irritating to me. I currently use PTR's VIZ-1000 Hyaluronic acid serum morning and night without incident. I have learned some tips on how to adjust your skin to using retinol. My first thought being, why? What does retinol do for the skin that my hyaluronic complex will not? What are the benefits that would make me want to go through stages of desensitizing myself; is it worth it? Also, how about my eye area? Is it safe to apply there? This is where I need anti-aging the most. The only wrinkles I have developed so far are right under my eyes.
