I'm looking for a sunscreen that does not have any makeup in it. I'm going to be do laser hair treatments on my face so I can't have anything on my face but the sunscreen.  I'm really pale and have super sensitive skin.  I don't really go outside to much because how sensitive my skin is. I start to turn red within 10 minute's of being out side even with sunblock on. Any help would be appreciated.

Clinique BB cream shades comparison
I liked Clinique's Age Defense BB cream a lot, but Shade 1 was too light for me. Shade 2 doesn't work either. I have light skin with neutral/pink undertones. How does the Light shade in the Acne Solutions line and the Moisture Surge line compare? The Light in the Acne Solutions BB cream looks a little darker than Shade 1 and was wondering if that is the case when actually applied.   Thanks!

Can I still use SR luna/good genes with after SK II FTE and lotion, ingredient-wise? or is it just one over the other?
I have been hearing good things about the SK II online and from friends. However, I still have more than half left of my Sunday Riley bottles. Would it be okay to add in the SK II to my regimen? Or would it be too much for my skin and just wait till I finish SR?

I notice all the Clinique Pep Start ads feature teenagers. Does this mean teenagers are the target group?
The models in the Clinique Pep Start ads are all very, very young.  Of course their skin care needs are quite different from those of someone like me (normal to dry, deep creases and large pores, 60 years old).  Does this mean Pep Start products are targeted for teenagers?

using liquid bronzers
I reside in Ontario, Canada and we're experiencing humidity which means not wearing any foundation as not only will my skin feel congested but it'll end up dripping off my face so I'm wondering if it's ok to mix a matte liquid bronzer (i.e. Benefit Dew the Hoola) with my moisturizer.  Are there any Canadians out there who also can't wear foundation due to the humidity?

Color recommendations for Gimme Brow?
I want to try Gimme Brow (new formula), having seen lots of great reviews, but I'm not sure if I need medium or deep. I have (rapidly graying) brown hair, with darker eyebrows, so I'm thinking deep from the way the colors look on my screen.    I'm currently using Boy Brow in brown, if that helps. The color is OK, but I'm not that impressed with the product.

Foundation too pink = white cast?
Hi, I just read somewhere that if a foundation is too pink for you, it will leave a white cast on your face...is this true? I've always thought that a white cast was caused by SPF or the shade just being too light or whatever is in a lot of Asian BB creams (I've tried a few Asian BB creams and they all had that white cast on me).   I have light skin with neutral-pink undertones and prefer full-coverage liquid foundations or BB creams. Most shades look too yellow on me, even some neutral shades, so I tend to choose cool shades. My closest color match is Neutrogena's Healthy Skin in Natural Ivory, but that's a lousy foundation, and next best is Clinique's Beyond Foundation in Alabaster...but it does leave a white cast.   Should I be avoiding pink-based foundations in the future? Thanks!

Hey Folks, I'm looking to kick up my facial regimeI
 currently do anything aside from moisturizer. But I'm lost amongst all the brands the organics and everything else. I am prone to blackheads, and occasionally acne, (very occasionally), but I'm also a dude, so do I need a wash, then a toner, then an exfoliator then a moisturizer ALL at the same time? I use to use a clinque toner. And occasionally a clay mask (like every 6 months), I'm also bearded, and as I age, find myself dying the greys out (noooooo not yet - LOLOL), this is part of an over-all kick my butt in gear kinda thing, to be fresher, more current, and best of me...so I do trim regularly.  DO I need to bother with that metal extractor thing, if I'm using a different exfoliator.   SO any ideas?   Thanks a Bundles..   Bootzz
