HELP! I'm looking for good skincare products. I have combination/oily skin. I tend to breakout a lot on my nose and around my temples. I'm usually oily in my t-zone. I use a drugstore acne facial wash twice a day but when I use it around my nose gets dry and some other parts of my face so sometimes I switch back and forth from acne wash to just a regular facial wash. I also crease a lot on my under eyes whenever I'm using makeup. OH! and I get a lot of blackheads on my nose. I'm being a tad bit needy lol, I'm looking for a good facial cleanser, good moisturizer, face masks and also maybe under eye care.
So the thing is, my nose is always dry and flakey for some reason, while every other part of my face is fine. I need help finding a good face cleanser and moisturizer that will help prevent the dry flakes appearing on my nose. Any good suggestions? Can be from Sephora or drug store. I have tried using facial oils as a moisturizer and they dont seem to help so much, so im thinking something more cream and thick?
Hello! I have combination skin - oily t-zone and dry cheeks - and I breakout pretty much all the time on my nose, above my lips and on my chin. I also have loads of tiny bumps under my skin in these areas which makes finding a good foundation hard. I find it hard to find skincare and makeup that works for me, and I don't want to keep spending money on products that aren't working for me. Currently, I use Philosophy's Purity cleanser (which seems to be working well), Alpha-H's liquid gold, Mario Badescu's toner mist and a moisturiser from the Body Shop. Makeup wise, i'm missing a primer from my routine, but I use Nars Sheer Glow as a base, which sometimes breaks up around my oily areas, especially in the summer. I'm looking for some suggestions for: - a face mask - a primer - anything else that you would recommend for my skin type. Thanks! xo
Here's the lowdown: I don't have TONS of breakouts at a time, but it seems as though they are consistent no matter the common culprits--hormone fluctuations, dietary inclusions/exclusions, etc. I have begun to notice it flares up when I am under intense stress, though. I need to find a cleanser that will help rebalance skin that's under a lot of stress often. Also, I sweat for a living basically, so I typically do not wear anything on my face during the day time other than a bit of concealer if needed, eyeliner, and mascara. Otherwise, moisturizers and serums/treatments tend to just get worn off quickly. Here's what I use currently: Morning- First Aid Beauty Deep Cleanser with Red Clay / Evening- DermaDoctor Ain't Misbehavin' AHA/BHA Cleanser with my Clarisonic I've tried a number of cleansers on the market, and most of them for the recommended 6-week or longer period to see a difference in use, but none have impressed me (other than DermaDoctor Ain't Misbehavin') enough to buy a second bottle. Any recommendations on cleansers you've tried and noticed a significant difference in your problematic skin? THANKS Y'ALL!!
I am looking for a good sunscreen that is not heavy and won't get me any breakouts, so while searching online I found this one that people say that it's really lightweight. Do you think it is worth the money? If not, which one would you recommend? PS: I used the past months the Neutrogena one, but it started irritating my skin and giving me breakouts.
i have a combination skin but it is really dehydrated at the moment i do have small and medium sized pimples on my face (mostly on cheeks) i was looking for skincare products (cleanser , moisturizer ,....etc ) any recommendations ???
This is my first time doing a post on Sephora Any-who, I am 23 year old who lives in Georgia. A couple of years ago my skin had change out of no where! I have psoriasis on my scalp, nose, eyebrows, ears and also my t-zone. I did read on psoriasis on how it can trigger your skin by stress and diet. I'm working on those but as for right now. I want regimen for my skin. Any suggestions?
I am 26, and am usually pretty awful about taking care of my skin. I never really had an acne issues as a teenager but recently have had really troubled skin. I get oily in my t-zones and am dry elsewhere. I suffer from milia, not around my eyes but most often on my cheeks. Also heavy black heads on my nose and chin, with some in my cheek area. I do own a clarisonic pro which I use when I remember. I live in Florida so I get decent sun exposure. My skin isn't overly sensitive but can be with really abrasive products. Hoping for some good suggestions for a full skin care regimen... i.e. cleanser, toner, serum, eye cream, weekly mask, etc. Anything to help and start preventative work as I get older!
I am looking to change up my skincare routine, and do not know where to start. Any advice is greatly appreciated!! I have been using my Clairsonic nightly with Purity face wash, followed by Clinique clarifying lotion 2, and then Clinique dramaticaly different moisturizers for so long! I have been hearing that i shouldn't use my clairsonic every day. I have very normal skin, not really oily or dry. I tend to have a few breakouts right beside my chin, and a few blackheads beside my nose. My questions are: how often should i use it? what cleanser should i use with it? should i use the same cleanser in the morning, and on the nights i don't use the Clairsonic?
I've been using Pure Perfection for almost a year now and I love it! However, I'm also interested in trying some other Ole moisturizers (especially Express the Truth and Nurture Me), and I see almost all of them have great ratings. Has anyone tried different moisturizers from the line, and if so what are your thoughts on them?
I bought Lush's Rosy Cheeks, but it hasn't reduced my redness at all. I was recommended Dr Brandt's Water Replenishment Sheet Mask. I have normal skin, not oily or dry, but I have mild rosacea. I don't mind if it's a mask, a night serum, or a cream, any face product that is guaranteed to reduce redness is fine.
What are some of the best foundations to use for a natural look? I usually stick to using Nars concealer and top it with my Laura Mercier loose foundation powder, but I am wanting to try a liquid foundation.
I am having the most difficult stress filled time. Previous to Jaclyn Hill's video raving about the Josie Maran Vibrancy Foundation I was set on purchasing the NARS all day luminous weightless foundation. But now I can't choose which one I want. Both is not an option, at least not right now because I am a college student and in the process of moving into an apartment and purchasing a new car. So if you guys had a choice between the two or absolutely love one but have yet to try the other let me know! Thanks xoxo
Hello friends! I am just looking for advice/feedback about the Clarisonic Mia 1 and Mia 2. I am considering buying one of these products, but I am not sure which is better for me. I have combo oily skin, fairly large pore, and I have a lot of breakouts (I only break out a little when it's that time of the month). Basically, I am just looking into buying this to help me take better care of my skin. What would you recommend for me and/or what do you think about either one of these products?
I was wondering what people's thoughts on these two are. I've tried the DE glycolic serum and liked it (sample), but then I tried a foil sample of it a month later and it did not do anything, and rather seemed to add to my whiteheads. I also tried the Good Genes as a sample, but it did not seem to do anything for me. I'm thinking that maybe I am not having much success with these products because I got them in a sample jar where the ingredients would have been exposed to the air for a while. That said, has anybody really tried both and have a firm opinion on which one they prefer? I have combination/oily (in the center of my face) skin, and it is NOT that sensitive.
I'm looking for an affordable scented body lotion and/or foot cream to use after showering. I don't have particularly dry legs or feet, so I don't need anything heavy duty, but I really would like something that smells nice! Currently I'm using The Body Shop's Body Butter (strawberry), but it's too expensive to keep buying it, so I'm looking for alternatives. Something that absorbs fast would also be nice, but is not mandatory. Thanks!
Which everyday facial cleanser can someone recommend for me? My skin is normal/combo and I need something that will help keep my pores clean as well as deal with whiteheads on the side of my face from my eye to a little past my cheekbones closer to my ears than the center of my face. I already have an exfoliant but I can't use that everyday.
Hello everyone! I keep having the hardest time trying to find a good skin care routine... and good skin care products. Im 19 and have never ever loved my skin. I'd say I have norman to combo skin (more dry than oily) and I have times when I break out really bad then I don't (back and forth, back and forth), But I've always had at least 1 or more pimples on my face! Once one starts going away, another appears... It's frustrating! I also have terrible black heads on my nose and under my bottom lip area/chin.... and little pumps that aren't pimples but aren't black heads either? <- not really sure what they are exactly or what they're called?? But I always have those on my face also. Im in need of products that will actually work for my skin!!!! Anyone have any thoughts on Dr.Brandt? Origins? Clinique? Clinical Advanced Skincare? OR any other brands that work for them??? Also, Products that work best? ---Im a collage student at a makeup school (no, we don't learn anything about skincare..) so I don't want to get something thats going to cost me 300 or more, I need something that is reasonable. I know nothing about skincare and need tips!! Right now I am currently between products and trying a few things here and there for a few weeks at a time to see how my skin reacts to the products. I always wash my face before bed & in the morning.... with hot water & a cleanser, then wash it off and use cool water. Then I apply a serum & face cream. I also use a mask once every week. TIPS PLEASE!!! Thanks xo.
Hi! I"m 13 years old and am for looking some good skincare products. I have normal/dry skin with some acne here or there. I'm currently looking for a moisturizer and possibly eye cream? I currently use Ole Henriksen Sheer Transformation moisturizer which I found out had anti aging properties in there which I feel I'm too young for... I use to use Clinique Dramatically Different Moisturizer which I felt worked good for me but when I went to Sephora planning to buy it again the skincare woman there said it was for more mature skin than mine and recommended me Ole Henriksen? Anyways, I'm just trying to find a good moisturizer for normal - dry skin and possibly a good eye cream for dark circles? Thanks in advance!
So my brother and I were talking today and I managed to convince him to stop taking skin care advice from our father and tentatively consider using products actually meant for skin on his skin (so no, shampoo is not meant to be a body and face wash too for example). The catch is that he has never had any kind of skin care routine and doesn't really have an interest in anything that would take a lot of time or require leaning much and his description of his skin type is "I don't know, I think it must be kind of oily sometimes because I get bumps, but not much....". He's in is mid 30s. So I was thinking of starting him with something relatively simple like: 1) a cheapish exfoliating body wash (if anyone has any suggestions that don't smell to "girly" or "like that Axe crap", I'm all ears) and 2) a face wash that would be simple and kind of moisturizing. I was thinking maybe a bar would seem more familiar but am totally open to suggestions..... I saw there was now a trial size of the two Drunk Elephant cleanser bars at sephora and wondered about that, but wasn't sure if a bar was the way to go given that he has a beard and I've never tried them either, but I heard really good things and have been wondering about them myself so I'm torn..... Thoughts/Suggestions??????
I have tried so many. I'm struggling to find a moisturizer I love and that does not cause breakouts. I break out mainly on my cheeks, chin, and jaw/jawline. 1. Clinique Dramatically Different Moisturizing Gel: This doesn't feel like enough hydration. I love the texture, I love the feel. This used to be my HG moisturizer but as I've gotten older it's just not enough. 2. Clinique Moisture Surge: Feels too silicone-y/plastic-y. May have caused breakouts. Belif Aqua Bomb: This is not oil-free and I think was causing me breakouts. 3. Boscia Black Hydration Gel: It was okay...but a skin rep at Sephora told me that using charcoal daily is not good for my skin because it pulls out impurities??? 4. Boscia Sake Balm: Soooo sticky. Weird/goopy texture. Returned. 5. Sunday Riley Tidal cream: Latest one I purchased. Has a lot of fragrance in it and I am afraid that is causing me breakouts/small bumps. It's $65 dollars and honestly has not wowed me in the last few days I have been using.
