The only reason I'm using L'oreal Revitalift and Garnier Ultra Lift is because they have retinol but I'm on the hunt for a more natural product with retinol; both of these products burn my skin when it's even minorly irritated and they're obviously full of chemicals; any suggestions for a frugal person? There was also something besides retinol which is supposed to be the second best thing for the skin but obviously I'm new to all this so thanks for any help with any of this!
I was randomly reading about a new mirror introduced at CES (the HiMirror) that scans your face and analyzes your skin and it had mentioned that there are a number of apps out there that can also do something similar, but I haven't found them.
I am 27 years old, going on 28 in 2 months. I want to continue with anti-aging and wrinkle-prevention skincare. However, I have oily skin and still get blemishes on my cheekbones and have an oily forehead. Is there a moisturizer that can have the anti-aging and wrinkle-prevention effects without causing excess oil on my skin? Thank you!
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!
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!
Help! I have very deep vertical lip lines on my upper lip. I have tried laser treatments and botox. Botox helps a tiny bit, but nothing is really helping. I tried retin a but it makes that area peel and look worse. Can you recommend the best serum or cream to help in this area. I was looking at Peter Thomas Rogh unwrinkle turbo or Kate Somerville dermal quench liquid lift advanced wrinkle treatment. I would love your thoughts on something that would help. Thank you
Does anyone know if there is a way to edit a product review that you've posted? I posted a negative review on Fullfill based on the smell (which is rather awful). I looked in the mirror a little later, and saw that it works really, really, really well. Worth the stench well.
I am a 35-year old woman with very dry skin looking for for a good anti-aging routine. I have been a Philosophy girl for awhile now, but there are so many products out there, that I am unsure where to start. I currently use Philosophy Microdermabrasion Exfoliating cleanser in the morning, followed by the Back to Nurture moisturizer. At night, I use Purity cleanser followed by a moisturizing oil (have tried several oils). Any suggestions on which products to start with? I have heard it's time to add a retinol product to my routine, but I don't want to dry out my skin even more. Thanks!
Hey everyone! So I just received the new Algenist Wrinkle Fighting Serum in the mail and I am really struggling with the dropper. It takes me several pumps and many dunks in the bottle to get even just one drop out. Has anyone experienced this same issue with any of their dropper bottles? If so, do you have any advice or tips on how to make it work properly? I live 2 hours away from the nearest Sephora, so it's not easy for me to pop in and ask them if mine is deficient or am I just an idiot. Would appreciate anyone's help. Thanks!
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,
I am 45 in one week! I have just noticed "crosshatch" crepey skin on my cheeks. I have combination skin and most antiaging products cause me to break out in blemishes. I currently use alpha hydroxy acid and salcidic (sp?) acid in light lotions plus mineral sunscreen by Olay every day. If I put anything other than the salcidic acid on at night I wake up to zits...I use this to control blemishes, fade sun marks, and reduce fine lines. I still have pretty good skin tone so I don't use foundation...I don't like the added color nor do I like having makeup on my entire face. I am religious about my sunscreen. Is there anything I can do to take care of my middle age skin that won't cause me to breakout? This new crepey crosshatch stuff is alarming! Just part of aging?
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 32 and have quite sensitive skin. Any allergies (food, environmental etc) show themselves on my skin. As I've gotten older, I find that there are things that are becoming issues and I would like advice from all you lovely women and men on brands/products to use. * I have an olive complexion and my skin type is sensitive/combination. I tend to get an oily T-zone, with dry lower cheeks/mouth etc. * I've noticed that my pores are much larger, especially on my cheeks and face by/on my nose. * I have black circles under my eyes and have tried most everything but nothing seems to help! * I don't get many break outs, but when I do, it's usually around my jawline and some whiteheads on my actual face which aren't visible, just uncomfortable. I've been using Origins Plantscription cleanser, Night cream and Origins Mushroom "toner" which seems to help with the redness I get sometimes. The day cream is way too oily...I should've gotten the oil-free one. ** I don't have wrinkles...yet. What I would like is to: Brighten my skin, have less visible pores, even out skin tone, decrease black circles and minimise break outs! I prefer natural or close to natural products and ones that don't test on animals. But TBH, if I can find product(s) which works and doesn't irritate my skin, I'll make sacrifices! Please help!
