Hello! For the past two years I have been using either Murad (1 year) Clarifying Cleanser, and Peter Thomas Roth (1 year) Anti Aging Cleansing Gel. At first, I loved both products, but soon discovered that my blemishes had not really changed much month to month. My skin is dry and uneven, but around my menstrual cycle (and other random time during stress, etc), I tend to get small breakouts in my T-zone area, and even on my cheeks. A lot of my blemishes are white or skin toned in color, with no head. Just raised, skin toned bumps. I use the First Aid moisturizer line, under eye cream, and lip moisturizer and are really satisfied with those products for my dry skin. I desperately need advice on a good face wash/exfoliator that will work for my skin and help in keeping my skin as clear as possible.      Thank you Sephora!

I absolutely love the coverage of Laura Mercier's Oil Free tinted moisturizer in Sand, but after about a week of using it, I begin to break out. I think it's just too moisturizing for my oily skin, but I love the coverage of a tinted moisturizer--particularly of this particular product.   How do you think Peter Thomas Roth's CC cream stands up. Is it a good alternative? Is the coverage as good, but without the possible break-out factor?

I need a new concealer. I'm almost out of my Mac pro longwear concealer and I'm looking to try something different. I have the nars creamy concealer but I'm not totally in love with it. I have dark circles. My skin is on the drier side. I can't use anything super moisturizing because it creases under my eyes even after I set it. What are your suggestions?? Has anyone tried the Estée Lauder double wear concealer? Thanks!

After watching Jaclyn Hill YouTube video on Becca Cosmetics I grew very curious about the line and would like to know some recommendations on what products should I get and what would complement my skin tone (I am a 1Y11 in Nars I'm a Tahoe) I like a foundation that's gives me moisture and medium coverage.

My wedding is next year and I'm in need of a new beauty plan. I need everything, a good face cleanser, face scrub, toner, moisturizer, spot treatment. Basically the whole nine yards, so I'm coming to the experts for advice. My skin dries out pretty easily and I don't like oily products. Other than that my skin is pretty normal.

Hello Beauty Gurus,   I'm thinking of trying a foot scrub to help with my ridiculously dry feet, as I live in the desert in California. I'm looking at the Fresh Brown Sugar Body Polish and Soap & Glory Smoothie Star Breakfast Scrub. Does anyone have any feedback on these as far as feet are concerned? Are they worth it? Or are there any others that will really get a lot of the dead skin off?   Thanks in advance!

I wear Bobbi Brown Long-Wear Even Finish Foundation in Porcelain, but find it a bit too pink for me. Is there another shade that is the same in terms of paleness, yet more yellow or beige in undertone?   Thank you!

A recent thread on global (country specific but not US) got me thinking…do we have American beauty rituals?  Are our rituals more specific to family traditions passed down?  Is it perhaps the communal nature of our beauty rituals that's different (perhaps not…think of group baths or saunas elsewhere).   Thoughts anyone?  Thanks!

I have combo acne prone skin. I am 41 yrs old with large pores and starting to get fine lines.  In winter I get dry rough patches.  I thought I'd seen something on sephora or sephora emails about products to help lock in your moisturizer especially at night but can't seem to find the information.  I would like a product that will hydrate my skin without making me break out.   If anyone can recall the products to help lock in moisturizer please let me know. Thanks

Hi everyone, I am planning on placing an order for my birthday. I am planning on getting the UD Naked Skin Weightless Ultra Definition Liquid Makeup in the shade 1 (very fair bisque shade with soft warm undertones). I've recently tried this and it seems to be the perfect shade for me. But the question is, which shade of the Naked Skin Complete Coverage Concealer should I get that would work best with the foundation - Fair Neutral or Light Warm? I'm leaning more towards the Fair Neutral because I'm usually the lightest shade of anything. The only reason the Light Warm threw some doubt my way is because I have warm undertones/semi-yellow toned skin. What do you think I should go with?

Hi Beauty Gurus,   I have very fair skin (cool with pink undertones) and have a lot of redness on my cheeks. I have very sensitive skin, so even rubbing my moisturizer into my skin in the morning turns most of my face pink for at least a few minutes. Regular concealers don't help much. Does anyone know of either a skin care product that will help reduce redness (and actually works) or a makeup product that can help cover it?   Any help is much appreciated!

I have heard differing opinions as to what time of day is better for exfoliating. Is there a benefit to exfoliating morning vs. night?

Hey ladies! I recently heard of Skin Inc.'s customizable serums and was wondering if anyone had tried them? Mainly I'm wondering if they feel it's worked and worth the $90 price tag and how long the bottles last? For $90, I want to make sure I'm going to get something that might actually work!   Thanks!

I have oily skin so everything seems to look blotchy. I have tried Kat Von D and loved it but it was photo sensitive so everytime I took a pic i looked very pale. I also tried Urban Decay Skin and it didnt give the full coverage like I had expected. Any other suggestions for full coverage that will not look blotchy and isnt photo sensitive??

Hi, I want to buy the AmorePacific foundation, but I don't know which color should I buy, I currently use Hourglass immaculate Lt. Beige. I don't know if i should buy the almond blush or the alomad gold. Thank you!

I have recently purchased the Kat Von D Lock It Tattoo foundation and I absolutely love it! The coverage is perfect and it lasts a long time, however, it is very drying on my face. After an hour or so my t-zone begins to get very dry and sometimes flaky. I moisturize and prime my face with either Too Faced Primed & Poreless or Smashbox Photofinish before I apply the foundation  but it still seems to dry me out. I love the product for its coverage and longwearing, but i'm unsure of any options I have left to stop the drying. Any suggestions on primers or alternatives to this foundation? Any other products to keep my skin hydrated but the foundation still lasting long?

My skin is more on the dry/sensitive size with occasional breakouts. Now that I'm 5wks pregnant- the hormones are starting to kick and and my normal products aren't cutting it! Any recommendations on a cleanser that's safe to use while pregnant that's gentle but contains either glycolic acid or alpha hydroxy acids? TIA!

I've been using Dr. Jart Premium BB cream for a couple of years but looking for a change.   Would this new BM product be a possible replacement? I don't need to wear moisturuzer with Dr. Jart and I am still looking for a BB cream that is one step. I do also like the coverage and moisture level of Dr. Jart. Any thoughts on how Complexion Rescue compares?  http://www.sephora.com/complexion-rescue-tinted-hy drating-gel-cream-P393356?skuId=1687920&shade_code ...

I'm a 22 year old beginning in make up. I only apply a light beigh BB cream on my face and a EOS lip balm to moisturize my lips. My skin tone is a light warm Asian yellow   and eyes are brown. The BB cream I wear changes the color of my skin from a light yellow to white almost which I think it's bad but I still wear it because it has SPF in it and is oil free.  However, without it my skin is oily everywhere on my face and I have pores everywhere on my face. What are some good oil free products to start my make up kit? I watch too many beauty videos and got inspiration for a natural every day look, to the no make up look, and the neutral/ smokey look for the nights. However for eyeshadow I would like to know great ones that have matte to neutral shades that last a long time. I know that some are highly pigmented. What is a good brand for water proof mascara? As for my skin being oily, do you recommended mineral make up over liquid foundation? Primer for mascara? Bronzer ? What are some great black eyeliner pencils? How about concealer? Pink lipstick that moisturizes and lasts long? What about a color for a smokey look? I apologize for writing so long.

Has anyone else noticed that the packaging for the Josie Maran Argan Milk has changed? The bottle originally was clear. I really liked that I could tell how much product was left. The bottle that just came in my order is solid white. Also, the product itself is different. To me, at least. It was a creamy color and now is very white and more difficult to blend in. It's almost like a watered down SPF when I apply. Any thoughts?
