My total hearts is near the number of the beast…YIKES Please help me pass it thru without seeing that 'triple digit' number next to my hearts. I know it might not mean anything to others but to me, this number means a lot. Thank you.
I am looking for an anti aging skincare line. I currently use Bliss Youth as You Know It but my main problem are laugh lines/creases. It is becoming very visible. Any solutions you can recommend? I am mid 40s and tend to have dry skin. Thanks!
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.
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.
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:
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.
As a woman in her late 30's, I have been using Clinique's Repairwear Laser Focus for lines on my forehead for the last few years. I think it's been helping - at least my lines haven't gotten worse. Now that Clinique has introduced the new Smart Custom Repair Serum, I wonder if I should make the switch. I plan to stop by the Clinique counter at Macy's this week, but wanted to see if anyone had some advice before I make the switch.
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?
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
Hi Ladies I was wondering if any of you can recommend a good eye cream to help with under eye bags. I haven't found anything that really helps get rid of them and I am starting to feel like I look haggered. Any help with this would be lovely.
Would like "expert" suggestions for night time skincare regimen. Please suggest specific brands. 53 combo skin getting dryer now post-menopausal. Need firming, lifting, decrease fine lines and enlarged pores. Currently using retinal, hydroxy acid, vit c & moisturizer. Use Clairisonic daily. Very overwhelmed by so many brands. Need to know exactly what type of products I should be using, how often and in what order but most importantly, some good bran suggestions! Ty!😘

So lately I have noticed that my neck looks like it belongs to someone of a more mature age. I have very noticeable thick lines on my neck which in my opinion makes me look older. I don't understand why this is happening. Im only 22. I feel like I should start doing something about it before it gets worse. Ladies any help or suggestions?
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. Advice on that matter is welcome as well.
I am 51 and looking for one line that can take care of my skincare concerns. I am starting to see fine lines on my forehead, and décolleté is starting to show my age. I have been treating dark spots and unevenness for about 5 years. I would like to continue to do so. It seems that my skin is getting drier. For most of my adult life I have had combination skin.
I am 30 years old and have prominent nasolabial folds and smile lines. They seem to be getting more noticeable. What can I use to prevent sagging or just make the area look firmer/tighter? I would like to try to keep it under 70 dollars if that is possible! Thanks
Hi girls, I am a beauty blogger looking for other beauty bloggers to connect with. I love everything about Sephora, you can tell by my VIB Rouge Status. My favorite brand from Sephora Currently is First Aid Beauty. I live in Massachusetts so I am battling the winter dryness and FAB helps with that! I am wondering what you guys think the best eye cream out on market is currently? I am only 22 and already seeing signs of aging! I NEED TO BEAT THIS STAT! Also, I currently have a giveaway going on at my blog, christinabeex3.com if any beauty lovers want to check that out.
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!
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!
I am looking for some great recommendations on a good serum that can help my forehead wrinkle. I am currently using Philosophy Time In A Bottle as well as Shiseido Ultimune Power Infusing Concentrate. Neither are quite doing the trick.
I'm 48 years old and feel like my makeup routine probably needs some updating from what I've always done and always used. I want a natural look and to not look all made up. Any suggestions? Where do I even begin?
