Hi ladies (and gents?), I'm 32 and apparently have resting b*tch face because I'm getting deep wrinkles between my eyebrows - google tells me they're called my 'elevens'. The rest of my face is relatively wrinkle free (thanks, moisturizer!), so I suppose I'm looking for a something to use as sort of a spot treatment. This will be my first foray into the wrinkle cream world, so I'd love some advice. My skin type is normal to dry and fair (the nice word for pale). Thanks y'all
I know that the Luna Oil is a cult favorite so was excited to snag the sample. Then I realized after I got it that it contains retinol I already use a prescription retinoid for acne and anti-aging. My understanding has been that prescription retinoids are more potent than OTC retinol products, however I don't really know about any of the other active ingredients in this product. Would there be any benefits to having both in my routine. (Understanding that I wouldn't double up by using both at the same time.) Including this would be on days when I'm not using the retinoid and would mean I would likely be using my existing retinoid less often. BUT I also have sensitive skin so I'm currently trying to use my retinoid just enough to get results, but not so much that it aggravates my skin's tendency toward redness and sensitivity.
Hello everyone!! I need some advice on eye area products that reduce the appearance of crowes feet/ fine lines and under eye crepiness. I am in my early 40's and am noticing this almost overnight (well seems like that anyway) I have tried several eye creams, serums etc and haven't found the right product yet. Does anyone have any suggestions?
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 just over 40 with combo/dry skin. I live 2 hours away from the nearest Sephora, so it's not easy to pop in to ask a question or get a sample. However, the last time I was there I picked up some anti-aging samples. I really liked the way the Dior Dreamskin made my face look. I also loved the way the Claudalie cream made my skin feel. Is it okay to mix the two, or is it better to stick with one product line? Also, should I use a serum as well as the Dreamskin and my Claudalie moisturizer, or is that simply too many layers? I would appreciate any input, as well as any other product suggestions. The Dior and Claudalie lines tend to be a bit pricey, so what do you use and love for dealing with fine lines and dry(ish) skin??
Hi, I am almost 30 years old and am already seeing the effects that stress, diet, and lack of adequate skincare has done to my face. I am showing signs of aging such as bags and wrinkles under my eyes, and would really like to get serious about taking care of my skin. I have bought things here and there, but I honestly feel lost on where to start, what products I need in my daily regimen, etc. Please help me out with this. I look forward to hearing your advice!
I need help finding a night cream/serum with retinol. I have used Sunday Riley Luna sleeping oil recently and liked it but wondering if there is something more effective out there? I am 47 and want to hold off on injectables, lasers, (I have darker skin and it might create more complications) and other surgical options for a while. I also have some dark patches around my mouth and want to incorporate Vitamin C into my routine. I have been considering the Algenist Genius Vit C serum. Should I use this at night with the retinol or in the morning under sunscreen? Thanks in advance!
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!
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
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!
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.
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
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!
