Hi all I've been looking around for a good anti-aging daytime moisturizer with decent SPF. This is harder to find that I thought! I have pretty normal-ish skin, and am looking for a a non-greasy moisturizer to wear day time under makeup, or over serum (I'm 33, currently using SR Luna and Origins Nightamins at night). I'm looking for SPF 30 or above preferably. The only one I found so far was the Perfect World SPF 25 from Origins, and at first it worked well but after a few weeks it felt like my skin just got used to it and I wasn't seeing the benefits anymore. Any help would be greatly appreciated! Thanks xo
Hi I am 33 years old and am looking for a great ant-aging serum that is safe to use throughout pregnancy and breast feeding. I have started to see fine lines, dark spots, and enlarged pores so I need help. Any advice/feedback is greatly appreciated!
Hi I am currently using an eye cream as part of my skin care routine AM and PM. Recently, I heard the hype surrounding eye serum. Is it really necessary to use eye serum prior to eye cream application? Thanks
Hi all you beautiful ppl, My mum's gonna visit me next month and I wanted to surprise her with a few skincare bits. She's very low maintenance in terms of her skincare and doesn't do much, which is why I don't want to overwhelm her with a ton of product. I'll share what I have in mind and I do need suggestions on what you think are non-negotiables, esp for that age range. Skin type: Dry, dehydrated mature skin. Undereye wrinkles, no other wrinkles on face, but some firming action would be great . Neck needs some firming for sure. I've put my list in spoilers. Pl feel free to comment on what I have/haven't included. "??" indicate that I def need suggestions in that area, esp morning, night serums, eye cream and day moisturiser. Thanks!!

Looking for suggestions please. I'm 32 and have never been diligent about skincare. I've always bought whatever face wash was on sale at Walmart and have used Nivea Soft as my moisturizer for years as it's the best drug store option I've found to date and works well for me. I've recently been using Eucerin for very dry skin and it works fine also. My my skin is a little oily in the T zone with dry patches when I don't exfoliate (St. Ives scrub) and otherwise normal. It is only mildly sensitive on the cheeks and under eye area with a little redness on the cheeks. I get the occasional breakout about one week a month 😑 but nothing major. (By "breakout" I mean a single pimple or maybe two that usually clears up in a few days with no spot treatment and I do get some blackheads around the nose and on the chin.) Also, I have a tiny bit of uneven texture but I'm not sure what it is because I don't think they are pimples, just some small bumps. They aren't really noticeable unless you get real close and I'm not wearing makeup. I'd like to even out the texture and redness as well as some fine lines around the eyes and larger lines on my forehead from subconscious facial expressions. Lol I'd like to find an affordable oil or serum, face wash, exfoliant, and any other suggestions would be greatly appreciated! Any ideas for that long, detailed list of wants? Thanks in advance!
Hi friends, I just bought a LOT of Elemis from a spa. I like it but would like to know other's experiences from this line of skin care. How pleased are you? Is there something that you recommend that you believe is more effective for lines, etc? Please let me know and stop me from purchasing such expensive skincare if there is something better! Thank you so much! RCP
I am 33 years old and starting to notice some light wrinkles/lines around my eyes. Can someone recommend a good moisturizer/serum/under eye cream for this? (that isn't super expensive!) I'm clueless on where to start! Thanks for your help!
Hi there, has anyone had Ultherapy? Was it worth it? Did you experience noticeable results in terms of skin firmness and skin tightening? I'm also looking into C02 fractional laser resurfacing - it's my understanding that this procedure also helps restore fullness and stimulates and strengthens collagen but it also minimizes wrinkles and removes age spots. My primary concern is restoring volume, fullness and tightening. Any advice? Thanks!
Hi everyone - this is my first post! I'm looking for some suggestions for my mum who has never used a dollop of skincare in her life besides cetaphil/sorbolene on her skin. She is going to attend my brother's wedding and wants to look great and has asked for my help in what she should do for her skin. She want to start seeing results in 4 weeks. Some quick facts about her: She's a 64yo Chinese lady Has only just started using Simple cleanser and L'oreal antiaging day cream with SPF 15 and night creams She has large pores and bags under her eyes Needs to focus on moisture Any guidance on the best products for her?
I've used up two bottles of Algenist GENIUS Ultimate Anti-Aging Vitamin C+ Serum and won't be buying a third bottle as it's wicked expensive, and I didn't notice much visible improvement. I'm not seeing a lot of reviews on the web for Dr. Brandt Skincare Power Dose Vitamin C...has anyone tried it? If not, is there a Vitamin C serum you might recommend? I'm 49 and have good, though sensitive, skin. I do have hyperpigmentation and am starting to show some lines on my forehead and around my eyes. Aging is fun Thank you!
Hey BTers, This is one area of my skincare routine I haven't quite been able to figure out. I have these fine lines under my eyes which just seem to be increasing by the day. I'm sure being a grad student and using the computer all day everyday for work contributes to it along with irregular sleep, but was hoping there would be something out there, product-wise, that could at least help a bit. Here are the few that I've tried: - Algenist Complete Eye Balm: did not work at all for me, did nothing basically. - Sheseido Benefiance Eye Cream: this is the only one that seemed to have some effect. However, the effect is only temporary in that it seems to reduce the appearance of the lines on application, but does nothing to treat them. - Clinique RepairWear Laser Focus: a very basic eye cream doesn't do anything for the lines. - Origins Ginzing: again, no luck. If there are some of you that have a similar problem and have found something to help you out, please let me know. Quite worried about this TBH. For reference, my skin is normal-dry, I am in my late 20s.

I am currently using a drugstore Retinol, Neutrogena Anti-Wrinkle Cream for night. I know drugstore retinol is pretty diluted and the percentage is pretty low. I was wondering if anyone knew any Retinol products that I could use to gradually climb to higher percentages when the time comes for me to get a stronger dosage. I am 22 so I have no lines or wrinkles YET! Only trying to PREVENT them. Any thoughts and comments are needed, Thank you!
I purchased a sample size of ole henrikson day/night care. Liked the red tea cleanser, morning collagen booster and invigorating night treatment. Before buying the large sizes, wondering if Clinique has anything better or comparable since i've been using Clinique for a long time. I'm 40+ years old, with dry/oily skin; occ pimple; starting to see fine lines around my eyes and chin; have a few dark spots and rosacea on cheeks
About my skin: I'm 23 but starting to use some anti- aging skin care products. I have generally normal skin that is fairly non- reactive. I do get hormonal breakouts around my time of the month (I use The Clinique Acne Solutions Oil-Control Cleansing Mask and Mario Badescu drying lotion to deal with these). However, my concerns are fine lines on my forehead and anti aging in the eye area because my eye shape is slightly hooded and almond shaped so it lends itself to looking a bit heavy or creased. As well, my skin has a tendency to scar easily (dark makrs from acne etc) I have done a bit of research so I'm using my PTR retinol at night to promote cell turn over for anti-aging and spots, vitamin c and AHA during the day with sunscreen for exfoliation and photo-damage repair. My overall question is: Is there something that I should be doing differently with my skincare? As well, I like the Dr. Dennis Gross Vitamin C serum but it is a bit on the pricey side for me. I also am not the biggest fan of the silicone- texture as I prefer more of a thinner/ oil consistency. I'm on the look for a less expensive alternative that has little to no fragrance and is packaged well to preserve the ingredients. I've been considering just buying the Philosophy vitamin c booster to add to another serum/oil but, of course that ups the price. I've also been considering Drunk Elephant but it isn't carried in stores in Canada yet so I wouldn't be able to sample it beforehand and apparently the smell can be a bit strong, also it's not that much cheaper. Thoughts? Recommendations? What I'm using: Day: Purity cleanser MAC Fix + as a toner Origins Gin-zing eye cream (will be switching to Clinique Superdefense Age Defense Eye Cream Broad Spectrum SPF20 once I finish the origins) Dr. Dennis Gross Hydra-Pure™ Vitamin C Brightening Serum** (looking to replace)** Peter Thomas Roth Glycolic 10 percent hydrating gel Clinique Broad spectrum SPF 30 Night: Purity cleanser Clinique Even Better Essence Lotion as toner Paula's Choice Resist Anti-Aging Eye Cream Peter Thomas Roth Retinol Fusion PM Clinique Super Rescue Antioxidant Night Moisturizer
Hi there! I am 27 and have some crazy bags going on lately. I didn't start taking care of my skin until about 1 year ago and I'm pretty mad at myself. Lack of sleep, diet, ect I know have all contributed. What creams do you find that work the best for getting rid of these? Also open to hearing about dermatology options too!!
I am 45 and looking for skincare routine. I live in Seattle, have normal/dry skin - slight wrinkles starting under the eyes and a couple deep creases on forehead. I am currently using... everything... Yes, I'm using PTR, Fresh, Dermalogica, Murad, Philosophy, Glam Glow, Ole Henriksen and so on... (every anti-aging starter kit ever created). What is the difference between Retinal vs Glycolic acid vs hyaluronic acid... is it HYPE or HOT?
I am 39 years old and am looking for a skincare routine that's main goal is anti-aging, with products that score low on the EWG rating scales. I really need something that helps with wrinkles. I have no idea where to begin. It would be helpful if the products are fairly reasonable as well. I don't mind paying more for a serum, but need the rest of the products to be reasonable. Help! I tried beauty counter products, but it was expensive to purchase everything that was recommended and I didn't see many results.
