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!
I'm approaching 72. Have been using Origins A perfect world moisturizer but am wondering if I should switch to Origins starting over age erasing moisturizer? Or do you have a recommendation for another product for dry, aging skin?
I am looking recommendation for anti aging skin care products. I am 30 and have dry, sensitive, uneven skin. I would like to buy a set so I can try the entire line plus more budget friendly. I am looking for complete regimen (Eye cream, Face wash, Serum, Moisturizer). I was told Drunk Elephant, Dr. Jart and Tatcha are among the good ones.
Im 42 yo mom, with dark circles, lines appearing round eyes, and 11's in middle of my forehead. Is there anything that can reverse this, or minimize ? if so what would you recommend for a complete treatment from cleanser through to moisturizer? thanks
So after having worked my tail off last week, clocking way too many hours at work, I had the day off. My husband was at work and I thought it would be a great day to go to the mall and enjoy some alone time. You know, just me, clothes and makeup. At some point during my experience, a gentleman from a kiosk approached me and wanted to know about my skincare habits. Not wanting to be rude, I simply answered that I purchased supplies from Sephora, and was ready to walk away. Well he must have known that I was the type to not cut anyone off, so he begins his speech (nice skin, don't look my age, blah-blah-blah) and leads me to his chair, where he proceeds to put this cream on my face just where my cheek and under eye area meet. The first sensation was tingling followed by mild burning, during which time he is still talking. So then my skin starts to have this tight sensation, and I would have put money on one eye being physically smaller and shaped differently than the other. Finally he asks how it's feeling and I expressed some degree of displeasure/ discomfort. He then reassures me that is the product working and gives me a (and I quote) "biology lesson". Yep, still burny-tight feeling the entire time. Finally, he uses a fire extinguisher disguised as another beauty product to make it stop burning. The end cost for 2 jars of face-fire: around $300.00! I asked for literature, he didn't have any. I asked for a business card, he was out of them. I was finally able to get him to write the product name on a paper- DermalActives. He told me not to believe the online reviews (!) because "they weren't using it correctly". After coming home and washing my face, I looked them up. Bottom line- BBB has a red flag on this group. Sorry for the long rant, but my sisters in beauty need to know about this hazard.
Hi, can anyone please help me out on choosing the right eye cream? I started out late on using eye cream (about 2 years ago) and I am now 33. In my mid to late 20's I already noticed the fine lines but didn't care about it. In addition to that, I have crow's feet when I am smiling. So now, I am chasing time as I have read that eye cream should have been part of one's regimen even before you see the problems. For 2 years, I have used a local product which was very helpful for eliminating dark circle but made my eye area very dry so I decided to try Neutrogena hydroboost but no difference. And then I switched to Shiseido benefiance wrinkleresist24 for about 3 months now. I also have tried an eye cream from Algenist but wasn't satisfied. Once in a while, I am using Origins Ginzing eye cream. Is there any other products you can recommend? It would be a plus factor if the product can also help with eye bags. Just a little more info about me: Asian-Hispanic descendant, deep set eyes😊
Hi! Looking for something to lose the bags under my eyes. I get tons of sleep and they are not dark. I am pretty sure it is just lack of elasticity in my skin. I tried the Ole Henkins but it didn't work for me - and somehow kept me awake at night. Any other suggestions for a firming cream? I know I will eventually have surgery but would like to wait a few more years.
I am looking for an eye cream that will help dimish existing crows feet/wrinkles around my eyes and prevent new ones from forming. I am 30 years old and the skin around my eyes gets very dry, so any cream I use needs to be hydrating as well! Currently I use the Bobbi Brown Hydrating Eye Cream and I love it, but I need more of a solution for the wrinkles!
My 50y.o. mother recently developed severe under eye bags due to a thyroid problem. The medical problem has been addressed but she is very very sad about her eye appearance. What is something that will actually work for her puffy under eyes?
Hey there, so I am 24 years old and I have a few prominent fine lines underneath my eyes. I'm starting to get worried & was just wondering what type of eye treatment I should start using. Also, I have mostly combo skin, but it tends to get a little dry. Just wondering if it is best to switch back and forth between face wash & cleanser? Thanks!
Hello ladies. I'm 46yrs old, medium complexion, and have combo skin. I've been using Kate Somerville's Age Arrest Anti-Wrinkle Cream on my entire face and Algenist Complete Eye Renewal Balm around my eyes. I've been using both products for about two years. Absolutely love the Kate Somerville's face cream, and feel as if my skin is in great condition. The Algenist balm worked well for awhile, but I feel as if the wrinkles around my eyes have become more prominent. It's probably just age. Bummer. Can you recommend an eye cream or balm that will reduce wrinkles further or maybe plump the skin up a bit, but not be too irritating? I do not have an issue with under eye dark circles or puffiness. Thanks! Cristina
Hi, I'm 52 with very few wrinkles/lines. Just a few between my brows and on my forehead. I currently use a vitamin C serum in the morning and an AHA serum at night. I'm wondering if I should be adding a retinol to the mix? Any thoughts? Thanks so much, Lisa
something that isn't too expensive (less than $75 ish) but packs a punch. I'm 26 and noticing a lot of crows feet suddenly, and maybe puffiness, so I'm trying to be proactive. I've never used eye cream before, so I really have no idea where to start or what to trust. Please let me know what you guys know works!
Hi! I am in my upper 30's and just moved down South where there is stronger and longer hours of sun. I have very fair skin and have recently begun focusing on my crows feet. I have been looking for an antiaging, anti wrinkle moisturizer that has sun protection. I just purchased Shisiedo but saw it has to be reapplied every 2 hours. Is there anything that is light enough for everyday, fights aging, and will protect my face all day? (Barring of course swimming or sweating). Any advice would be welcome!
I'm thinking of adding a serum at night before I apply my Sunday Riley Luna Oil. I'm about to be 37 so anything that is anti-aging or could help even out the redness I have on my cheeks is something I would be interested in. My skin is combination/oily in my t-zone. In the mornings I have started alternating between the SR Good Genes and the DE Firma-C. Followed up my Murad's Mattifying Moisturizer and a sample I have of Algenist's Complete Eye Renewal Balm. Thanks in advance!
I have developed some white bumps under my eye that makes me believe it is milia. Is there any under eye cream that will make it go away? Also under my eye looks like "chicken skin" not sure if this is milia too! Any advice or products I should use? Thanks!
I'm going to start tretinoin cream .025, for refining the surface of my face, fine lines, minor acne (hormonal mostly), reducing pore size/visibility. I have moderately oily medium-tan skin (I don't tan, my face is just medium tan in color). I have been using Roc Nighttime Retinol with some success, but decided, with my Derma, to use the RX. In the past I have used too much and didn't moisturize (I was in my 20's don't judge!) and now, older and wiser, I'm ready to listen. So, what moisturizers have you used at night to help with the dryness and redness, possible initial irritation retina can cause? I will entertain all price points.
Hi guys! I am one of those mid-30's women who woke up one day and went "Ack!!! I have mid-30's skin and need to take care of it!!" Upon the recommendation of my dermatologist (who told me to do VitC in the day and retinol at night), I recently started a new skin regimen (listed below). I'm loving how, within a few weeks of starting, my skin is looking more radiant. I get that the fine lines and minor chloasma will take a while to start to resolve, so I'm not too worried about those just yet. But I have noticed that my nose and, to a lesser extent, forehead have become intermittently shiny (not always really bad, but definitely something that's new). I have read some reports that the shine never goes away, while others have said that the shine goes away after the active ingredients have time to thicken the lower layers of skin. So for now, I'm at a bit of a loss, and I have a few questions for those of you who may have experienced this with the start of a new regimen: 1. Should I expect this shine to eventually resolve on its own? 2. Are there any mattifying products that might help reduce this shine that can be used even if I don't plan on wearing makeup? I am currently treating the shine with Supergoop!'s Defense Refresh Setting Mist with Rosemary SPF 50, which helps, but only lasts a few hours before I have to reapply. Thanks for bearing with me through this long post. Anyway, here's my regimen: AM (daily) - gentle cleanse w/ foreo to remove dead skin cells - toner: Dr. Gross C+ Collagen Perfect Skin mist - Ren Evercalm Anti-Redness serum - Obagi Professional C-Serum (derm recommend) - Obagi Vitamin C exfoliating moisturizer (derm recommend) AM (as needed to deal with flakiness) - exfoliator: Dr. Brandt microdermabrasion age defying exfoliator (free sample) PM (nightly) - gentle cleanser - Luna Oil/Good Genes combo - toner: Murad Vitamin C (as needed if skin feels tight) Thanks guys!
I'm sure this has been asked a million times, but I'm curious what your holy grail eye creams are? I have bad puffiness and dark circles, no matter how much sleep I get. I'm looking for a cream that will help me with that. I've tried Origins GinZing, Clinique Pep Start, and Benefit's It's Potent, and none of these do anything for me. So, what else can I try? Price isn't a factor if it works!
