Does anyone have the complete ingredient list for the La Mer Moisturizer? Thank you.

Guys, does anyone have experience using La Mer? Is it worth the insane price?    All it looks like is that I'm paying for a silicone and seaweed basically.  see post
Foundation makeup advice needed
I've been having a really difficult time finding a makeup that suits my skin. My foundation makeup separates, or kind of curdles, and settles into my pores not long after application. I've tried cheap stuff and expensive brands too many to name - and none of them work. One of the problems is I have roseacea. I'm also very fair and have pinkish undertones, so many makeups look far too orange or yellow on me, or they're too dark. I've tried Clinique's anti-redness line and hated it, and I've also used Bare Minerals but if left my skin feeling dry and itchy.   Any ideas? Thanks!

My brows are falling out
So i used to use a pencil to shape my brows instead of filling because naturally they are thick, but then they started falling out so i started to use a powder but they are still falling out a lot to the point where i cant just stop using it. I have tried using $80 products to grow them back but it isn't working. Do you recommend any powders or eyebrow growth serums? Btw i use loreal powder

eye area
2 days ago I used a pore refining mask.  I think I might have put a little of it around my eye area because the next morning I woke up and the outside slits of my eyes were really red and sore.  And I suddenly have wrinkles under my eyes.  They look shriveled up.  This is day 3 now and they still are sore and wrinkled.  Not sure what I did or what I can do to fix this?

Friend makeup.
I'm looking to buy a lot of makeup for my friend, but since he has an aesthetic going on with his makeup, id like to only buy makeup that comes in pastel packaging, preferably pastel pink. Currently all i know to get is the Too Faced SweetPeach palette and the Babylicious brush set. Do you know of any makeup brands with packaging that fits that description?

Fresh Oil Cleanser
Hello,   I purchased the Fresh Seaberry cleansing oil a few months ago and loved it. I'm about halfway through the bottle, and when I went to wash my face tonight, I noticed there were...globules? in the bottle. I'm sorry to sound gross, I don't know how else to describe it, it looked like there was mucous in the bottle.   Ive never opened the bottle, it's well insulated from light? What might this be?

New Skincare Routine for Hormonal Acne
Hey y'all,    I've had acne since I was a teen and am still struggling with it as a 26-year old. I used to be on topical medications but switched to a pill called spironolactone a little less than a year ago. It's been a life saver and I've been able to stop using my prescription topical creams.   However, because spiro cleared up my skin tremendously and because I am also a Sephora employee, I've been experimenting with new skincare. I recently broke out horribly after using a combination of the Ole Henriksen Invigorating Night Gel and Josie Maran's spf 47 moisturizer (I used Ole's night treatment for almost three weeks without breakouts until I incorporated Josie's sunscreen, which broke me out immediately). I've since stopped using both because my skin was aggravated and dry, on top of breaking out.   Since I've stopped using these two products, I incorporated Sunday Riley's UFO oil into my night routine. I love that this doesn't dry my skin out and has a BHA. I've been using this for roughly 5 nights and while my acne is beginning to get less and less, I still have a few new pimples that pop up every other day or so.   Here is my current routine: AM - Exuviance Antibacterial Moisturizing Face Cleanser -First Aid Beauty Vitamin Mist as a toner -Josie Maran Argan Whipped Face Butter  *days without makeup I use Supergoop's Mineral Sunscreen in place of the argan face butter, otherwise I use a BB cream w/spf as my "foundation"    PM - Exuviance Antibacterial Moisturizing Face Cleanser (sometimes I use First Aid Beauty's Skin Rescue Deep Cleanser if breakouts are horrible) - Sunday Riley U.F.O. oil - Josie Maran Argan Whipped Face Butter   My skin is combination oily with most oil in the t-zone and cheeks and dryness where my acne occurs which is along my jawline, lower cheeks, and neck. I am also sensitive.   I am hoping for a recommendation on a potentially new or improved skincare routine based on these concerns. My biggest concerns are acne and small white bumps of texture. Otherwise, my skin is fortunately pit-free as I never picked my acne too much!   I do also prefer a cruelty-free skincare routine <3
