I'm looking to switch up my skin care routine. I currently use clinique for my cleansing and toning needs but have been looking in to the olehenriksen face the truth gel cleanser as well as the fresh rose deep hydration facial toner . Do you guys think it's okay to use products that aren't from the same company? Has anyone ever experienced skin irritations from doing so? Any advice would be great! Thanks!

Hello beauties,   For my birthday, my husband surprised me with a gift certificate to a spa for a facial.  I had never been to a spa, nor have I ever had a facial--so I was both excited and a little nervous because I didn't know what to expect.  It turned out to be a positive experience for me, and I thoroughly enjoyed it.    My esthetician was wonderful, and she provided some tips on what I could do to help heal my acne scars.  I have a couple small ice pick scars on my cheeks, but I have several hyperpigmentation scars--once again, on my cheeks.  I'd like to think I do a good job of covering my acne scars every day, but when the makeup comes off, I feel self-conscious about my face.  I've converted to natural, chemical-free skincare products, such as: Trader Joe's, MyChelle, Derma E, and Mad Hippie.  Unfortunately, I suffered from severe acne in my teenage years but couldn't afford to see a dermatologist, so I researched and discovered that drinking water and changing my diet could make a difference in my complexion (and it did)--but I was left with scars.  The esthetician did not recommend facial scrubs, as she said they would be too abrasive for my skin type--but she said I'd greatly benefit from a peel that contains lactic acid, salicylic acid, or glycolic acid.  I currently use Derma E peel twice a week which I love, but it contains alpha hydroxy acid.    I am asking for recommendations on a peel that contains lactic acid, salicylic acid, or glycolic acid.  I would like to get rid of these acne scars once and for all, and I know I've come to the right place for expert advice. Thank you so much in advance!   Love & blessings, Daskala

HI, since day 1 of using makeup, i've always had an issue with cakeyness, where u can see my dry skin and all my pores/redness. I am currently using the NARS all day luminous weightless foundation, underneath I prime with makeup forever step 1 primer in green because i have rosacea so my skin is red and blochy, i use a drugstore contour which has never been an issue, and i use the nicole glow glow kit which as well, is not the problem. I finish it off with the urban decay cooling setting spray. I use two beauty blenders, one regular one and one edged one for my concealer (concealer is the sephora branded concealer in the lightest shade). I ALWAYS cover my face in a layer of coconut oil and exfoliate with a st ives apricot scrub. what am i doing wrong? I only apply one layer of foundation. Is there a product someone in my case recommends? LIke any moisterizer or anything. People comment on how cakey my makeup is. I know it's my shade for the foundation so it isnt that. Thank you.

Hi, I'm 43 years old and I'm looking for a liquid foundation that provides full coverage with matte finish that is light weight, sweat-proof (really holds all day) and is natural looking. My skin is light to light medium but I typically like a little more color to help cover reddish checks and yellow undertones. Help please! What foundation and color would you recommend?

Hi, I am 20 years old and I suffer from hyperpigmentation & discolorations on my face. I am also on a tight budget, so I was wondering what can I do to help have a clear skin? Thanks!
Ask The Experts
My skin has been AWFUL lately. Horrible breakouts on my chin, flaky skin (even though I exfoliate consistently), and my foundation has stopped going on smoothly and lasting all day. I need major help. Do I change my skincare routine or change my makeup? Or both? I've used BareMinerals for years and have always loved it but it's not holding up it's end of the deal anymore. I'm not perfect, I get lazy sometimes and don't always take my makeup off before bed but that happens like once, possibly twice a week. My typical routine is to take my makeup off with Neutrogena wipes, and then wash my face (just switched back to Neutrogena for blackheads), then I do spot treatment on my acne, and put face lotion on. Sorry for the long post but I'm desperate for some solid advice on what to do.

I'm looking for a moisturizing lip product with not too much color. I have pale skin and don't really like bright lip colors. I do like lip gloss, but I want to be sure it's moisturizing and isn't too sticky.   Could I get a few recommendations for Sephora's best lip products?
Ask The Experts
I have some old acne scars on my cheeks and I was wondering if the Sephora brand has a good foundation for covering them up.

I am also looking for a moisturizing skin product. I've heard from several people to try Cerave, Cetaphil, and Vanicream products, but not sure which is the best for extremely dry skin, especially on my hands. I have tried several things, but my skin is still very dry. Sometimes it's painful because it's so dry and cracked. Can anyone recommend a good moisturizing hand cream or butter that I could start using? I'm hoping to find something that finally works that I will be able to use daily.

I think it's time to turn to you all for help. I feel like I'm doing everything (fairly) right in terms of my skincare and makeup routine but no matter what I do my makeup just will  not  stay in place all day! It's enough to drive me crazy. First of all, I would say I have combination skin. My t-zone gets a little oily but not bad while some areas (particularly my chin) are a little on the dry side. I'll walk you through my routine and you let me know if there's anything I'm doing wrong. In the morning when I wake up I usually cleanse my face with the Lancome 'Creme Radiance' Cleanser and, of course, pat my face dry. I then pat toner on my face (alcohol free) and use Lancome Renergie moisturizer. I am 26 so I don't have saggy skin, but I have used multiple moisturizers and this is my favorite. Then I wait for the moisturizer to dry and proceed to use Lancome's La Base primer. Then when that's dry as well I put on my foundation with a clean beautyblender.I happen to use drugstore foundation so that's the only thing I can think might be tripping myself up, but I don't think so. I mean plenty of people use foundation from the drugstore and their makeup still looks great, so that can't be it, can it? Anyway, I typically use Laura Mercier translucent setting powder to set my foundation and then set everything when I'm all done contouring and all that with my setting spray. By the end of the day, though, my makeup has worn off my cheeks and nose (I don't touch my face at all) but I don't have an excessive buildup of oil or anything. On the rest of my face my makeup has settled into any fine lines I may have and it's just crappy.   By the way, at the end of the night I diligently remove all my makeup and use my clarisonic and my lancome cleanser to clean my face so I'm not neglectful or anything. Should I buy a higher end foundation instead? If that would help I'm going to go out right this minute and buy one. Other tips would be helpful as well.    P.S. if I do need to go buy a high-end foundation, what is recommended? I'm thinking MAC Studio Fix but I'm open to suggestions.

I'm really struggling to find a foundation that is pale enough for me. My skin is pale, neutral-to-yellow undertones, and somewhat dry. Shades I've tried that are too dark: MUFE Ultra HD Y205, Estee Lauder double wear 1N1, Lancome teint idole 090N, Urban Decay naked 0.5. I'm starting to think I'm going to have to buy white pigment and mix it in.

Hi Beauty Talkers!   After months of product development and getting sprayed one too many times (not all nozzles are created equal!) we are so proud to introduce Glow Getter Mist. We created a truly hydrating, illuminating, and multitasking mist with some serious skincare benefits. Glow Getter is expertly formulated with globally inspired oils and extracts that bring out the best in your skin. A mix of floral oils and extracts provide a light rose scent (absolutely no synthetic fragrance). Plus, it always feels refreshing and lightweight...never sticky!   DG: When I was in grad school I took a trip to Iceland and was blown away with the natural beauty (one of the world’s cleanest ecosystems) but I couldn’t get enough of the Icelandic glacier water. The mineral-rich water takes hundreds of years to go through layers of volcanic bedrock and lava rock, which serves as a natural filtration process, resulting in one of the purest waters in the world. The pollution free water contains special minerals that nourish your skin.   LE: Once we made Icelandic glacier water the base of the mist we hand picked 6 extracts and 25 oils for their hydrating and glowing properties. I love hibiscus fruit extract which increases the elasticity of skin, evens skin tone, decreases inflammation and provides intense moisture. It’s also packed with antioxidants which is great for sensitive skin.   DG: We decided to include evening primrose oil because it reduces redness, inflammation, swelling, hyperpigmentation, and contains hydrating properties. It’s basically a super oil for skin!     LE:   Glow Getter is the perfect primer, it’s my first step before applying my makeup. Here’s a great tip, spritz your makeup sponge and spot refresh your face throughout the day!   DG: I’ve been in three cities in the last few weeks: San Francisco, Chicago and London and my Glow Getter Mist was an inflight essential. A spritz before taking off and one after landing. For our team it’s a gym bag essential or date night must have for luminous skin.     So tell us, Beauty Talkers, how do you get your glow on?

I've been using MakeUp Forever Water Blend for the last few years. It's worked okay, but over the last few months my skin has been more oily than ever before and I've had frequent breakouts. My dermatologist suggested changing my makeup.  Any advice on other brands that could help reduce blemishes or make my skin less oily?   Thoughts on Giorgio Armani's Power Fabric or MakeUp Forever's Ultra HD or Tarte's Rainforest of the Sea, of Dior's Forever Perfect Foundation?   Thanks!

When I have my self tanner on, my perfect shade match is Hourglass  Illusion Hyaluronic Skin Tint in Shell and Nars Creamy Concealer in Vanilla (Colour IQ: 1R04). I'm looking to match this with the Cover FX Custom Cover Drops.    I use LM Tinted Moisturizer in Porcelain everyday. Since it's a TM, I find the sheerness allows me to blend it out to match my skin tone.   I've tried using the colour IQ, but I know that it's not incredibly accurate but here's the results I found in the Cover FX drops shades (their lightest shades, I don't think P or G will work): 1Y02 - N10 1Y03 - N20 2R04 - N25 2R03 - P20 3Y03 - G20   So since the Colour IQ accuracy is questionable, I'm seeking your advice! Which one do you think would be the best match for me? Thank you
