I have my graduation in about a month and my goal is to have clear skin. I have a pretty good skin care routine that I do everyday at night: Cetaphil Daily Facial Cleanser (for normal to oily skin) Simple Oil Free Light Moisturizer SPF 15 Or Clinique Dramatically Different Moisturizer Gel (it just depends On which one is closer to me when I wash my face) Clearsil Ultra 2% Salicylic Acne Spot Treatment Clean and Clear Toner (I forget the exact name) And sometimes I will use DermaE Glycolic Cleanser with vitamin a its a refining cleaners I use it once of twice a week. In the morning if I feel like my skin is a little oily from sleeping I use Clean and Clear Morning Burst Fruit Infusion Hydratint Cleanser and the Simple SPF 15 Moisturizer. It's a pretty basic routine and once a week I use a papaya enzyme mask from the brand Alba. I am really looking for something else to incorporate into my routine to clear up my skin, or if you think I should be changing some products and usin other please give me your suggestions! I really want clear skin and I've been stuck with blemishes on my chin for the past few months that are really stubborn and won't go away! I should also mention my skN is combination.
Dior's BB Cream or Clinique's CC Cream? Just got samplers at my Sephora store. Have combo skin and am s~c~a~r~e~d it's going to be a disaster. Like "Oil Spill 2013" kind of disaster. Opinions, please! = )
Ok, so I have spent the past 30 minutes trying to find a post where someone talks about a favorite skincare item. I read it recently and wrote down the product they raved about & I cannot the piece of paper anywhere! They tried something else that cost $150 (i think that is what they said) but they shouldnt have because they really love this other product that cost about 1/2 the price. Does anyone remember reading this, and if so, can you please direct me to the thread? Thank you X's 100
I'm looking for a new moisturizer to transition into summer. Currently I use Eucerin Daily Protection because it's very gentle, and I have SUPER sensitive skin. I used to think my skin was oily/combination, but now I'd say it's more or less dry/sensitive. I still get a little oily around my chin, but since I've grown out of the teen acne phase its more or less just sensitive to anything too heavy (with the occassional pimple around that time of the month). Recently it's gotten pretty humid where I live and I noticed after washing my face and applying my regular moisturizer it feels heavy/sticky...something I would not consider it in the winter. I want something that feels light and refreshing after work & workouts that won't break me out. I was considering Philosophy's Take a Deep Breath, or Clinique Moisture Surge. I've also looked at Bosica, First Aid Beauty, Ole Henriksen, and Peter Thomas Roth. Any suggestions?
Dior Hydra Life Pro Youth Serum Boscia Restoration Moisturizer Philosophy Hope in a Jar What Im looking for is a good moisturizer for the summer that is light weight gives me moisture without being too much for my skin (if that makes any sense). I rarely go out in the sun so SPF is not something Im concerned about and have the occasional dry patch here and there. I have sensitive skin so if any of you guys have had break outs from any of these three products please shareeeee
I was wondering if anyone could recommend a good lotion (or any other solution) for me. My skin on my face gets extremely dry throughout the day to the point where I can see it starting to flake/peel. I notice it most around my eyes & on my eyelids and near the corners of my mouth, but I also see it lightly on my cheeks. I have combination skin, so those parts of my face get very dry, but my T-zone and sides of my nose get really oily. I'm not sure if the dry skin is just from the harsh winter weather/seasonal change, but even on the nice, warm days, I still notice some dry patches. A little bit about my skincare/makeup routine: I wash my face in the morning & at night with Neutrogena Oil-Free Acne Wash (I've been using it for a while & have never had a problem; my forehead and cheeks are prone to the occasional pimple). I occasionally switch it up and use Korres Milk Proteins Foaming Cream Cleanser. I always moisturize after washing my face, usually with Clinique Dramatically Different Moisturizing Lotion. I lightly spot treat the occasional pimple with a salicylic acid gel. As for makeup, I apply primer after moisturizing, then use mineral foundation. I'm looking for a lotion that is lightweight & won't make me break out, but also something that is heavy enough to take care of my dry skin. My skin is on the more sensitive side, but I can handle lightly fragranced things.
I am in desperate need of a new toner and moisturizer. The ones I am using at the moment are almost done and they have yet to fix my skin problem =/ I have combination skin - oily on the nose and forehead, yet normal on the cheeks. The biggest problem is that no matter what I use, my skin gets extremely oily within an hour! even without any make-up. I also have quite a lot of pores (on the cheeks, but especially on the nose). No matter how many products I try, none of them ever get smaller. So what I am asking for, what is a good toner and moisturizer for someone with combination skin that gets extremely oily within an hour? I have tried rich creams and less rich ones, but none of them work. I would also like to minimize the pores. It is gross that my make-up will sink into them and make them even more noticeable than they already are =/
What would be a good cleanser and moisturizer with SPF for me? My skin is combination -- oily in the T-zone -- and is tight after I cleanse with Clinique combination-oily liquid facial soap. I have medium-sized pores on my cheeks, acne on my chin, and fine lines on my forehead. I would like a fairly basic cleanser; it does not need to foam. I would also like a day time moisturizer with SPF that helps to minimize my pores and fine lines, that also is not too mattifying.
I'm a completely Newbie when it comes to skin care. I am 29 with what I believe to be normal to combo skin (T-zone). I've been getting by thanks to my Asian genes and products that my family gives me as presents. But I'd like to find a skin care routine, and also any hints on types of products that I should and shouldn't use would be great!
Normal, after I clean with philosophy purity cleanser and wipe off excess water when I wash. Sometimes tightness but not dryness when I use Lancome Tonique Doucheur . Usually it's fine and I don't feel tightness. Also sometimes I follow up with Clinique Dramatically Moisturizing Gel. The same tightness but not dryness occurs sometimes. I would consider myself to be normal/combo skin. Oily in T-zone but normal at the cheeks. What am I doing wrong?? edit: So I lied.. I'm feeling dryness at the highest points of my cheeks right now. (After cleanser and just toner.)
Hi there! I'm 30 years old and am looking for a new facial wash and moisturizer. I have combination skin as well as blackheads mainlt in my nose. I really want my skin to look radiant. I'm not looking to break the bank with cost. Two brands that I've been looking into are Boscia & Philosophy. Any suggestions would help. Thanks!
Hello my fellow make-up lovers! I've been so curious about this famous Argan Oil. In particular the Josie Maran ones. I have combination skin. My forehead and nose are dry, and my cheeks and chin are oily. I'm kind of afraid to use products with oil in them... especially products with oil in the very name of them. My questions are... Will Argan Oil make you break out? Has anyone with combination skin tried these products with beneficial effects? And if so, what were they? Has anyone tried it with negative effects on their skin? Thank you in advance if you answer my question. I'm extremely curious. Warm Regards, Love, and Make-Up! <3 -Missy http://www.sephora.com/argan-oil-P218700
I have a question about the dark spot corrector. I used few brand of dark spot corrector in the past. However, none shows any effect on my face. Maybe I misunderstood it or used it by the wrong way. I want to ask that the corrector is work like the concealer, lighter the skin tone, or it would elimiate the dark spot. And the dark spot corrector is applyed on the whole face or just on the spots. Thank you for your adivse.
Does anyone have any reccomendations for acne face wash? I have combination oily/normal skin type, I get oily mainly on my T-zone and nose. I've been REALLY stressed lately (:/ ) which is why I know I've been breaking out more often. Its like everyday one new zit has gone away to be replaced by a new one. ugh. I am currently using the clean and clear morning burst face wash and have been for quite some time; I have loved this forever so Im really sad it isnt working for me anymore But what can you do? I just know I now need something with more power and just overall something that works super fast (such as overnight) and something that will improve the look and feel of my skin overall. I would also like the product to be from the drugstore so Im not spending a whole lot of money on face wash (since thats something that I go through a lot!). Any product reccomendations are appriciated Thank you for your time!

Bobbi Brown Protective Face Lotion SPF 15 SEPHORA COLLECTION 8 HR Mattifying Moisturizer Sunscreen Murad Anti-Aging Moisturizer SPF 20 PA++ Peter Thomas Roth Clini-Matte All Day Oil-Control SPF 20 Murad Oil-Control Mattifier SPF 15 Philosophy Hope Oil-Free SPF Thanks
I'm 20 years old and I've delt with hormonal acne since forever. I have normal skin and I only seem to break out on or around my peroid and the breakouts last for weeks, and since I have fair skin, the pigments and scaring last even longer. I've been using philosphy for a while now and hasn't cleared my skin but its made it at least managible. I would still like to find somthing that could finally get rid of my breakouts and allow my skin to heal. I've also tried clinique, maud, loral, nutrogena, clean and clear, you name it. Acne products seem to be too harsh for my skin and the anything made for dry skin or combination skin is too heavy. If anyone has any suggestions let me know.
I have combination skin with dry/flaky patches in the winter. I find the rich hydrating masks targetting dry skin doesn't get absorbed as well as gel masks like Fresh Rose or AmorePacific Moisture Bound. I know the general rule of thumb is not to use 2 masks at the same time. However..... .....whenever I use a harsh treatment like ExfoliKate intensive, or Sekkisei Kose peel-off mask (it's like 2x peeling power of Boscia black, it's intense), and my skin is usually a bit nervous (drier more sensitive) for the next day or two. I was wondering if it would be a good idea to use Fresh Rose or AP moisture mask right after rinsing off ExfoliKate to prevent that 1-2 days of unhappy skin. Anyone had experiences using multiple masks at same time? would that work or should I just try to follow up with a more hydrating toner/lotion/moisturizer?
Hey guys! So I've been noticing that my make up isn't applying too well and that it starts to flake a little, especially around my nose area (which is also a little irritated and dry.) I'm pretty sure that I need to start exfoliate (and other stuff as well!) I also really want to get rid of a lot of post acne scars and shrink my pores. I would like to try some brands that are more natural or ones without so many bad stuff in it, etc parbens... So yeah I hope you guys can help! Oh and btw my skin is combo. I do have sensitve skin and break out. Also, my skin is drier in the winter and oilier in the summer. thanks guys!

After many years struggling with acne, I finally have clear skin! It's such a great feeling, but now I realise that I have absolutely no idea what to do in terms of skin care. I've spent so much time looking at acne related skin care products, I'm really not sure what to do now! So I'm here looking for skin care regimen suggestions. My skin is slightly dry, (probably mostly a result of still using my acne cleanser--Philosophy's Clear Days Ahead) and a bit sensitive. I'm hoping to go to Sephora tomorrow and get some samples and things, so any product suggestions ahead of time would be great!
I recently purchased the Algenist Multi-Perfecting Pore Corrector Gel Moisturizer and I don't think it's working well on my skin. It doesn't seem to play well with the tinted mositurizer I use after the mosturizer. any thoughts? :/
