Hi all!!! I want a daytime moisturizer that is gentle on my skin but that will improve it over time (not just coat it with silicones) and even my skin tone / decrease pore size / smooth the skin (and also will prep for makeup!). I have oily skin with large pores and it does get sensitive at times. This is my current routine: Cleanser: either Algenist Gentle Cleanser or Philosophy Purity Gel Cleanser Toner: day=Michael Todd Organics Antibacterial Algae Moisturizing Toner night= Michael Todd Organics AHA/BHA exfoliating toner I CANNOT stand any moisturizer with sparkle too it... I wanted to love the Algenist Pore Refining Gel Moisturizer but there are freaking mica sparkles in it and they accentuate my pores ARGHH! Please help!!!! Also -- Is it OK to use moisturizers that contain oils on oily skin? Will they clog my pores? Sometimes I use Korres Rose Sleeping Facial at night and I feel like my skin drinks it uppppp but it's too heavy for a daytime moisturizer... Any suggestions would be a huge help xoxo.
Ok so I recently bought Bare Minerals original foundation...I figured it would be an easy foundation for days I don't feel like doing much. I put on a primer, liquid illuminator and a little bit of cream concealer then went to apply the foundation with the tarte airbrush finish brush (recommended by TiffanyD to use with this foundation) and it looked terrible! It went on patchy and clinged to dry spots that didn't exist before I put it on. I do have dry skin, but have learned to moisturize well before applying foundation. I feel like I made a crucial mistake somewhere along during the application because I know this is a very loved foundation by many people. Anyone have any ideas?
I am a 18 years old teenager with a combination skin type, and I am wondering if I have gone overboard with skincare. I clean my face with the clarisonic and cleanser twice a day and use exfoliating product once a week. Then I use a toner, essence, prepping lotion, radiant serum, hydrating serum, brightening serum, revitalizing serum, eye cream, and facial cream. As for mask, I put on cleansing mask, hydrating mask, brightening mask once a week in different days. If I get a breakout or small pimple, I would put on a layer of tea tree oil and 2% salicylic acid product on the infected site after I am finished with my routine. So, I am using too many skincare products?
I have very large pores around my nose/t-zone, and I am in desperate search for a primer to cover them! I also tend to have a little bit of oily skin in that area as well, so I need the primer to last all day. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated!
I match perfectly with BareMineral Bareskin #3 Linen and Cover FX 30 but when i looked for a pick for baremineral original foundation powder it was Medium Beige here. When I went to the bare mineral site it was Fairly Light. I know my skin is neutral more then yellow from all the past foundations I've tried. I was just wondering if I should purchase the Medium Beige this site picked for me or the Fairly Light picked by BareMinerals site?

My fav Lancome waterproof mascara failed me today when I went to raging waters. All the mascara smudged to the bottom of my eyes and looked horrible (I didnt notice until 2 hrs later). Can someone recommend me a "real" waterproof mascara that does not budge even with a makeup remover- thanks.
I am really wanting to try Dior star foundation but not sure what a good color will be for me! Please help. I am shade 360 bisque in Lancôme teint idole ultra 24h foundation BD 55 warm praline in YSL fusion ink foundation and NW 35 in MAC
I have oily, acne prone, sensitive skin. I'm looking for a face serum that will work well with my skin type. Does anyone have any suggestions. Also in looking for a new moisturizer. I was looking at the Korres Pomegranate Balancing Gel-Cream Moisturizer. Had anyone tried it? What do you think about it?
I use NC 40 and NC 42 in MAC. I use MUFE HD 153 (which still seems a little dark). I need to know what shade in YSL Fusion Ink would best suit me. I hate foundations that have a pink-ish tint to them as my skin is more on the yellow side.
Hi there - I'm a huge consumer of mascara and eyeliner. I used to have a great face wash that could handle the chore of removing my eye makeup as well as clean my face, but it was discontinued. I want one product - a face wash - that can do the trick. I don't want to use eye makeup remover after I wash my face. Any thoughts?
I'm looking for the shade that would match me best in the Nars Sheer Glow Foundation. I'm NW20 in the MAC Pro Longwear Foundation, N1 in the MAC Face & Body Foundation, 3.0 in the Urban Decay Naked Sin Foundation and 30 in the Make Up For Ever Mat Velvet +. Does anyone have any idea or suggestion on what shade I would be?
In search of a setting power that doesn't not wash you out. I am currently using dermablend white setting powder and it's great because it leaves skin matte, however I notice that in pictures my face looks really pale and washed out. Any recommendations??
I want to use a (or a few) Boscia skin cleaners/moisturizers, since I've heard great things about them from friends and reviews, but I don't know the differences between all the (cleansers etc.) products. What is best for a not-so-oily face? Do you have an opinion on any? Any answers are greatly appreciated, thank you.

Hi, anyone and everyone I'm currently using this toner from Mary Kay and I've been using this product for a year now, but it's almost done. I LOVE this toner. However, I'm branching into new skin care to see what else works. I was wondering which toner is really good for dry skin but pimple concerns every now and then. I don't have an acne prone skin, but they occasionally pop up and I want a product to complement that issue. Can I please get a good recommendation? I'm willing to try anything. Thank you!!!
Color iq came up 1y06. My bobbi brown current shade warm beige puts me at 2y06. The Kat Von d light 49 looked good in store (maybe even a shade too light) but has darkened in the hours since and some places actually appear orange. Is this what people call oxidizing? Is there a fix for it or am I going to have to try a completely different formula? Thanks.
A little background: Skin: Oily Color: around ivory, i live in San Diego so the sun is always shining on the face. I do have acne, It hasnt been bad for the past 5 months until recently i switched up my cleaning routine, I am currently in the process of getting a clear face with my old products. My question is, What foundation do i use!? I have been a makeup lover forever and i know how to paint my face pretty darn well. But its always a hit and miss when it comes to foundation. Recently i went and picked up Makeup Forever Mat velvet + matifying foundation and i hate it. After an hour i feel like the foundation makes me oily. I use true match and that lasts at least 5 hours, so it has to be the foundation. The primer i use is the one from Hour Glass and i absolutely love it! I was looking at the new YSL foundation but its so expensive so i am trying to find a bit cheaper foundation before i fall in love with something that will break my bank every few months.....The foundation has to be full coverage. any suggestions please?!!
One of my friends swears by Dior Capture Totale One Essential. She says it completely changed her skin and made her fine lines and wrinkles disappear. I've read several reviews, and people either think it's life-changing or they think it's a waste of money. One reviewer who loved it said she stopped using it because it has alcohol in it and alcohol's bad for your skin. (On a side note: What does alcohol do to your skin? I'm a newbie and have no clue!) I'm thinking about giving it a shot for myself and also for my mom for Christmas. Since it is so pricey, what do you all think about it?
I have the most oiliest skin on earth. Nothing seems to work for me. Currently I am using Becca's Ever Matte Primer, followed with Tarte's 12 hour amazonian clay, with tarte concealer, and cover fx pressed powder to set and set it with the Urban Decay 12 hour all nighter setting spray. By 11 am my skin is beginning to look greasy, and by 4 my makeup looks as if it is melting off my face. I use Algenist pore minimizing moisturizer, Ole Heriksons Ultimate Eye lift cream and cleanse morning and night using my clarisonic mia 2 with philosophy purity. I have tried smash box primers, make up forever matte foundation, kat von d's lock it foundation, smash box 12 hour foundation, basically it seems like everything! What is a good remedy for this? I have rosacea, and need coverage because of my combination skin (extremely oily t zone, cheeks, but dry in certain areas). I want a good foundation that can go the distance and not add to my already oily skin. PLEASE HELP!!!
So I used the clarisonic for about a month with the sensitive brush head and after two weeks of use developed pimples and bumps in place on my face I've never had them before. After there weeks I had more so I decided to purchase the delicate brush head after reading many good reviews. At this point I had weird itchy under the skin bumps. Almost like a rash. By week 4 I couldn't take it anymore so I stopped using the clarisonic. It's been about two days since then so when will my skin return back to normal? Has anyone else experienced this?
I have battled severe acne for many years and I finally have it under control. However now I have hyper-pigmentation and some pretty deep acne scars. I have used Dr Brandt's exfoliator and it has been a miracle worker for the hyper-pigmentation, however I'm in search of a product or products that can help with the scarring. I also have a lot of overall redness, especially around the eyes. I guess just looking for something to help take care of the scarring and overall brightening. Anything suggestions are helpful!
I'm 66 yrs. old....I have some gray. I've had my hair colored for years. My hair is thin. I like a lustrous look and not dry. Would Bumble and Bumble Gentle Shampoo and Bumble and Bumble super rich conditioner be a good choice my hair. Hair color has high and low lights throughout and is shoulder length.
