Night Time Routines
I just turned 21 and I'm looking for a skin care routine for the morning and the night. I always take off my make up but I want to know what serums, moisturizers, anti aging products, etc., are the best for an early 20 gal. I have normal skin tone, occasionally oil in my T zone and I use sun screen every day.

Need some help on a skin care regimen
I am in need of some advice on a skin care regimen. I am 38 and have some fine lines around my eyes and a few lines on my forehead. I just started using Dr Gross, but am thinking I need something for the definite lines, rather than an anti aging regimen. I use the peels every evening, and follow with the anti aging serum and moisturizer. I really have not seen a difference, but have only been using it for 2 weeks, I have oily skin, prone to break outs, and could use some brightening and glow.

Skincare routine for multiple concerns
I'm curious how BT'ers organize their routine to address multiple skincare concerns.  My biggest issues are skin dryness and acne so historically, my routine has been centered around those.  However, since I'm in my early 30's forehead and under eye wrinkles are really starting to bother me.  The forehead wrinkles are really my biggest issue because I look at other people my age and while I think I look good for my age overall, my forehead wrinkles seem more pronounces than other people.   I feel like I'd like to rotate in some products but since my routine is already pretty full I'm trying to figure out the best way to do so without overloading my skin with products or losing out on the benefits I'm already getting.  An easy swap would be to replace one of the products I use for moisture with something for anti-aging but I've found I need everything in my routine right now (at least until Summer) to keep skin dryness and tightness at bay.   So I'm curious, how do you ladies do it.  Do you rotate serums, cleansers, etc.   Current routine for reference:   AM:   Face: -Fresh Rose Floral Toner -Caudalie Vinosource S.O.S. Thirst Quenching Serum -Caudalie Vinosource Moisturizing Sorbet -Acne product (Aczone)   Eyes: -Lancome Genifique Yeux -Fresh Lotus Youth Preserve Eye Cream (Gift from Sephora)   PM:   Face: -Peter Thomas Roth Anti-Aging Cleansing Gel (with Clarisonic 2-3 times a week) -Fresh Rose Floral Toner -Caudalie Vinosource S.O.S. Thirst Quenching Serum -Caudalie Vinosource Moisturizing Sorbet -Acne product (rotate between Differin Gel & Azelax)   Eyes: -Lancome Genifique Yeux -Fresh Lotus Youth Preserve Eye Cream (Gift from Sephora)   I also use GlamGlow ThirstyMud for moisture as needed and the GlamGlow mask for acne for a spot treatment.

Which Fresh Eye Cream????
I am in love with the FRESH products I have tried. I use the soy face cleanser and the black tea instant perfecting mask. I want to buy a good eye cream as this is my major concern. I am only 30 and stay out of the sun, BUT I have very delicate under eye area, which is sagging, bagging   and wrinkling. I know it is genetic as all of my older relatives have serve under eye bags. Anyway, I want to take care of this area and prolong this for as long as possible. Fresh has so many eye creams. The have a Lotus Youth Preserve, the Black Tea age delay, and the  Crème Ancienne Eye Cream. Well, I want to delay age, preserve youth and fight the signs of aging. Whats a girl to choose?

Expired product? Dr. Dennis Gross feruic +retinol solution
Hello, I purchased the 1 oz Dr. Dennis Gross Ferulic Acid + Retinol Brightening Solution at Sephora in-store. It was my 3rd time purchasing this product, but my first time doing it at Sephora. The other times I got it through a local spa.   When I got home, I noticed it looked very different from my other purchases- instead of being clear, it has orange globules floating in it. I wonder if it's expired? It was on sale, so it's possible it is really old.   I emailed Dr. Dennis Gross' company to see if they could tell if it was expired- I gave them the code on the bottom of the bottle.   I'm afraid to actually use it. I've attached photos of the state of the item. I just purchased it new today, and I haven't opened it yet, I wanted to contact you to see if you had any information for me.   I've attached some photos. Thank you! Claire

Any Tips On Prying The Top Off Of An Algenist Firm & Lift Bottle?
I bought a bottle of the Firm&Lift with Retinol from Algenist during their Friends and Family event, which I think was in November. I just took it out of the box and the pump doesn't work. It's too late to return it, and they don't do exchanges, so I need to break into it. The top doesn't screw off. Pliers aren't much help, either. HELP! Any tricks/techniques that have proven successful in similar situations would be greatly welcome. Thank you.   Adding: sorry, posted in the wrong category - no idea how to fix that.

Skincare for my parents in their 60s
Hello!  I'm actually asking on behalf of my parents who are both in their 60s.  After a recent trip to Sephora with a friend, I was sharing with my parents that I purchased eye cream and I asked my mom what kind of eye cream she was using.  I was a little shocked to hear she had never used eye cream in her life.  After a little more questioning, my mom and dad shared they both just use ivory soap to wash their faces and they don't moisturize either.  I'd love some suggestions for skincare for folks in their 60s.  I was surprised, even my Dad was interested in something for his eye area!  Thanks in advance for suggestions!

Many Questions for New Skincare Routine
 I am 33, and realize I am past due on having a solid, healthy skincare regimen.  My skin is normal to dry, and I am sad to say that I have only been using Olay Regenerist face wipes, and Olay Regenerist moisturizer.  I have done extensive research on products I should be using, but am left totally overwhelmed and still clueless.  I have the occasional pimple due to hormones and/or stress.     Problem areas I would like to address: a few blackheads and enlarged pores, but most importantly, puffiness/small wrinkles under my eyes, and preventative measures for further aging/wrinkles. From what I understand, I need to be using a makeup remover, cleanser, toner, moisturizer with SPF, serum/night creme, exfoliating and masks 1-2x/week.  I'm overwhelmed just typing all of that...!   My questions: Is there an anti-aging makeup remover/cleanser all-in-one that is great for dry skin, or is it necessary to use two different products?  I would like to use an over-the-counter retinoid for anti-aging...is this something I would use morning and night, or only at night? Would I use this in conjunction with an eye creme for puffiness/wrinkles? Or would the retinoid creme be sufficient as an eye creme as well? Is it okay to use on the neck area as well? Once I know what products would be best to get for my skin and problem areas, I'm also super confused as the order of usage of all the products...for example, does the retinoid and/or eye creme go over or under the moisturizer/night creme? I know you get what you pay for, but as I'm just testing the waters right now, I'm hoping to be more conservative in spending if possible! Thanks so much in advance for your help/feedback/advice!

Needles No More Review
NOTE:  This item was gifted to me by Sephora.   Oh my, where to start?  I'm 54, so I obviously already use some anti-aging skin products. I currently use WrinkleResist Eye Cream, NutriPerfect Eye Serum, and Bio-Performance Corrective Serum, all by Shiseido, and FAB Ultra Repair Cream. I continued using these products while trying the Needles No More, which I applied twice a day, morning and night, before applying the above products.   So, some observations about Needles No More: It is lightweight, non-greasy and absorbs readily, but I didn't find it particularly moisturizing or hydrating. It has a pleasant minty scent (very similar to those puffy little after-dinner mints) and leaves a vaguely cooling sensation. I never felt any tightening, though, and never experienced any irritation or sensitivity, either.   Generally I was pleased with the treatment — there were real improvements especially around my eyes. I was pretty impressed until after two weeks of use,  I suddenly couldn't get anything out of the bottle anymore ! I thought, "Seriously? It's empty already?" I tried for several days to get it to come out again. Shook it, took the little pump top off. T he bottle is brown, so you can't easily see how much product is remaining, and y ou can't open the bottle because of the way it's molded, so it's not like you can just use something to get the contents out, either (sneaky!).  I had the bottle in its box on my counter, so that it was sort of half-in, sitting at an angle. For whatever reason,  that  seemed to make it work again! But that seriously annoyed me, because at this price point, there shouldn't be any packaging failures.    I'm lucky I kept it around for a bit. Can you imagine tossing it because you thought it was empty? Luckily it continued to work after that episode, so the bottle lasted a total of about 7-8 weeks, which is similar to most other treatments I've used.   Anyway, my overall impression is that Needles No More works. But no, it is  not  a miracle cure with results like botox. I think the fine lines around my eyes are definitely less noticeable as are some of my forehead lines. I have a rather deep line between my brows that is still visible. I think perhaps that the really "set in" furrows might be beyond the serum's range. I  can  say that they feel less deep when I touch them, but they have not disappeared.  I purchased a second bottle when Sephora gave out the $25 off a $50+ purchase around the holidays, and I have only recently opened that one, so I don't know if the bottle issue was a fluke or not. I think you'll like the results with the Needles No More, but it's not going to take 20 years off your skin. However, I think it's an effective product with better results than a lot of other serums I've used, and the price is in line with other products.   For those who question the validity of this review, I've included before and after pictures of me in all my bare-faced glory. "After" shots are 7 weeks after beginning and were taken in the morning after using NNM and regular routine.   Before: After (1):   After (2): The Angle:
