Budget friendly Korean skincare that works?
Hello!! I know there are a few threads on here about Korean skincare but I was hoping to get some opinions tailored to my own skin.  I have pretty normal skin, dry in the winter, and acne prone.  I currently have a second cleanse that I will not part with (Yüli Halcyon) and two toners I love (Herbivore coco rose and Yüli Panacea) but I will take all kinds of recommendations! I'm most curious about essences though, I was looking between the Missha essence and the Benton snail bee essence.  Can anyone give some insight into budget friendly (but still gives results) products?

Favorite Mask or treat yourself products
So its that time of year when a lot of us either get gift cards, or get ourselves a little something special just because we deserve it, and face masks are one of the things I always think of as the perfect little indulgence--not too expensive, but mostly not something I think of as an absolute necessity so not something I usually buy for myself and the perfect thing to treat yourself with.  Since its been a couple of years since we had a thread on favorite masks and with so many new ones that have come out, I thought this might be a fun discussion to have so......   1) what are your favorite masks and why? 2) do you have another favorite treat yourself product/purchase?

Looking for a skin regime that would really help.
Hey guys so for over a year i have been looking for the perfect skincare products. I have a combo skin, oily t zone and somewhat dry cheeks with new acne on it plus the acne scars from last year. I was currently using kiehl's products but they didn't help. I am looking for a daily skin routine starting with a face wash then toner and moisturizer, nothing too harsh for the skin. My main concern is the little acne and the oily part of the face.   really appreciate it if you guys can recommend products that are more organic.

Super easy skin care for a guy who knows nothing about skin care?
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??????

Very Dry yet Oily Skin? Desperate for Answers!
Hi All, I have a very odd skin type that doesn't seem to fit in the normal categories. My cheeks are very dry, and my T zone is dry and flaky but gets extremely oily throughout the day. I have tried countless products, mostly different moisturizers and cleaners with no luck of clearing up the oiliness in my T-Zone, but is hydrating enough as well. Many beauty consultants tell me that I am dehydrated... but I tend to use the most moisturizing products because products for combo skin or oily skin aren't nearly hydrating enough (skin still seems tight when using them). Currently I am using Fresh Soy Cleanser, Eau Roma Toner water from lush, and Dr. Jart's Ceramidin cream. Does anyone else have this problem, and if so, have you found any miracle products that helps? Thanks so much!   Amber

Need new skin care routine for VERY sensitive skin (hopefully anti-aging too)
I'm hoping you guys can help me find a new skin care routine that will work for my super sensitive skin since most of my go-tos have been discontinued. I'm in my mid-30s but am usually mistaken for someone in their late teens or early twenties when I'm not dressed for work.  The biggest issue is that my skin is SUPER sensitive (as in trying to use Algenists gentle cleanser and oil at night started out OK but within a couple of hours was red enough and burning badly enough that I not only needed to wash everything off but it had to be treated with cortisone cream.  I don't know if the skin sensitivities are just aging or related to my worsening RA/Fibro & meds, but either way it makes it crazy hard to find products that work.  To give you an idea, here are products I've used in the past and ones that I've tried and that haven't worked.  What I'd really like is a new routine that can keep my skin in great shape and help me with the early signs of aging that I am just beginning to see around my eyes.  Overall my skin leans towards dry (worse in winter & middle of summer because of central heating/AC) with occasional breakouts.  I've read some really good things about Drunk Elephant being exceptional for sensitive skin and so wondered about that, but also about Sunday Riley or Nude or almost anything else anyone could suggest....   Products I currently use: Acure's 100% Argan oil (at this point I use this as my main moisturizer because I haven't found anything else) Korres Milk Cleanser (loved the old formula, find the new just a bit more drying and scented) Origins Modern Friction Bosica's Black mask   Things I've tried in the past and liked: Chanel's Beauty Initiale (face cream & eye cream) Caudalie Lip & Eye Serum (liked the consistency but didn't seem to do much) Various Prescriptives moisturizers (but they don't really have anything anti-aging) Prescriptive's Vibrant C eye cream (which I also liked a lot but I think is more of a camo solution then actually helping long term and since I found myself usually using it at night, didn't seem like a good fit).   So I am really looking for new routine but particularly cleanser, eye cream, day and/or night anti-aging treatment (could be part of an oil or moisturizer too), and moisturizer and any help would be greatly appreciated as well as feedback from fellow super-sensitive skin who've tried Drunk Elephant, Sunday Riley, Nude, etc.

Day Time Moisturizer Help
Hi everyone! I am pretty knowledgeable and comfortable with makeup things, but skincare is something I'm not as well versed in: I'm not always sure of what my skin type is and I don't know what ingredients will and won't help me. I do like using a thicker moisturizer to really hydrate my skin at night, and I already have one I'm very happy with, but I am having trouble finding an everyday moisturizer to use in the mornings. I am a teenager with a tendency to get oil build up and breakouts on the tip of my nose, chin, hairline, and occasionally on the corners of my mouth. I get dry, acne like bumps on my jawline, the bridge of my nose, and between my eyebrows. Other than that, I have kind of dull, dry skin on my cheeks, forehead, and nose. I want a moisturizer with SPF that is lightweight enough that it won't make my chin and the tip of my nose greasy, but that will also keep the skin everywhere else looking hydrated and brighter. I would prefer not to spend too much money, but I am willing to spend a little more on a product that will really work and ensure my skin looks nice and healthy for the rest of my life. I hope that isn't too many requirements: I'm sorry I'm so picky, I'm just a little stuck.

Winter skin - help!
So I have pretty normal skin - I break out every now and then mostly on my chin and I get dry sometimes around my cheeks. But now that winter has picked up and now that it's freezing outside: my skin is going nuts! My cheeks are SO red and dry and are forming some very unattractive patches. I've been using rose water to calm it down, putting on an extra layer of moisturizer and laying off my Clarisonic brush, but I can still see my dry patches underneath my makeup.   Any suggestions for alleviating this? I hate seeing that dry, scaly skin under my makeup.   My usual skincare routine is: washing once a day with the Vanishing Act soap by Rena Levi (usually with my Clarisonic, but like I said, I'm not using that now), Caudalie Beauty Elixir (swapping that out with rosewater at the moment) and Cerave PM Facial Moisturizing Lotion.

Hello ladies! I am currently using Caudalie Vinoperfect serum and lately I've noticed that it isn't working as it used to.

Cursed T-Zone
My T-Zone is the worst! Specifically, my nose. My nose is where I get all of the acne and redness (rosacea). I have prescription for those problems. I have the whole combination of skin tones-oily, dry, pores.   Putting foundation (liquid and powder) works well all over my face except my nose. It usually dries and ends up looking hideously crusty! I've used the combination of foundation/lotion, liquid/powder, oil/foundation- all of no success. I just end up with foundation everywhere except my red nose.   I would very much appreciate advice and product recommendations on combating this problem of mines.

My skin looks flaky when I apply my makeup
This past weeks I been having more acne than i usually have, but what really concerns me it's that when I apply makeup my skin looks really flaky around my nose and a little bit between my brows, what do you think it's causing it and what can I do to stop it?    I thought that maybe I was applying my makeup in the wrong way or my brushes were dirty, but I tried using different products and I washed my brushes and nothing. I have normal to dry skin, I exfoliate twice a week and use Argan Oil (the light version) every night and before applying my makeup, I don't use any moisturizers because they feel really heavy on my skin.
