NARS Skincare
Hi Beauties,   I want to try some of the NARS skincare line but wanted to hear what people thought about it. I have combination skin with acne that will pop up if I use the wrong products. I take an oral medication for acne so I can only use products for very sensitive skin.   I've been eyeing the Aqua Gel Luminous Oil-Free Moisturizer:  http://www.sephora.com/aqua-gel-luminous-oil-free- moisturizer-P377864?skuId=1478346   and the Multi-Action Hydrating Toner:  http://www.sephora.com/multi-action-hydrating-tone r-P377869?skuId=1478296   If anyone has used these products, what do you think? How are they on dry skin, acne-prone skin? Thank you in advance!

Pre-Wedding Skin Care Routine
I am looking for recommendations for my friend who is getting married in May. She doesn't really have a skin care routine (just washes with a Clean and Clear foaming wash and goes to bed...), and she wants to amp it up to have glowy skin for her wedding. She has normal skin and doesn't really suffer from breakouts (lucky girl!).   I have my own AM/PM skin routine for my combo/oily/acne prone skin, but it would be too intense for her.   So I would love some suggestions for a cleanser, an exfoliator, and a moisturizer for normal skin and the routine for which to use them. Drugstore, high end, or a mix of the two would be fine. Her biggest issues are dullness and some blackheads on and around her nose.    Thanks in advance!

Skin Care Routine
Hello! My name is Emma and I am 19 about to turn 20 in February. I have normal skin and I am looking into a great skin care routine. I rarely ever break out and when I do it is only one pimple at a time. I do however have white heads. I normally just use drugstore products but now that I am almost 20 I want to treat my skin better and give it some love. I am looking for an every day cleanser, moisturizer, toner, and anything else anyone recommends. Thank you for your help!

suggest a primer please?
hi I have never really used a primer but would like to try - mostly to hide pores. I use Laura M tinted moisturizer as foundation. I have tried Smashbox and it made my face all blotchy and oily. I tried MUFE #7 and I found it made my pores stand out. Any suggestions? My skin is dry but is oily by end of day - so I would say it is a combination. Thanks!

which one?
I am just wondering about certain products. I have been using the three little wonders for the past 2 years, including the pure truth youth activating, but I still need a little more boost into my complection. I have been hearing crazy good reviews about Perricone md, the blue palsma, cold plasma, and the C ester serum. I bought them recently and now I am wondering If I can be able to use them in conjunction with the Ole Henricksen. If I cant use them both, which one has more benefits because I dont want to keep perricone if its not worth the money. ANy advice will be helpful.

Acne Prone Combination Skin/Red Cheeks Skincare
I am 24, with acne prone (still), combination skin. I also have red cheeks and nose (not rosacea) meaning anything with salicylic acid to treat the acne inflames my cheek. I've tried to find the best skin routine for years and I can't seem to really find anything I stick to or keep coming back to. Any mix of drugstore or sephora-level product recommendations would be appreciated!   My skin isn't necessarily oily anywhere, but due to breakouts I classify my skin as combination.

Best moisturizer with SPF?
Hi! I have combination skin and I am looking for a good moisturizer with SPF. I would like the SPF to be at least 25, more would be better... I just don't know which one to try. I'd prefer one that isn't tinted or anything.   I currently use Hope in a Jar but I'm almost done with it, and want to replace it with something with SPF.   Or should I just use a 'regular' moisturizer over or under sunscreen?   Thanks!!

Clarisonic - how to pick my first one?
So I finally decided to buy a Clarisonic and came online to order, just to find out there are many options of Clarisonic and also of products to go with it...I tend to go with the Mia as it is the cheaper and seems to be the more simple to use.   My skin is combination with regular breakouts (1-2 a month) on the chin region. At first I would not want to use any products with acids, just a plain (not very agressive) cleaner...   Oh, and I just plan to use on my face.   Any ideas?

Want to try something new..
I am 23 and my skin has gone through some dry phases and then oily phases. Currently I would say that it is in the normal phase but due to winter quickly approaching, I would like to try something new. I am currently using Peter Thomas Roth Rose Stem Cell Bio-Repair Cleansing Gel, Ole Henriksen Truth Creme Vitamin C Advanced Hydration, Estee Lauder Advanced Night Repair and Idealist Skin tone. I sed to also have Peter Thomas Roth's Gentle Complexion Correction Pads and I ran out and never had the time to buy another pack. But like many women, I feel like I would like to try something new. My skin is fairly clear BUT my main concerns are: dryness, acne, uneven skintone, acne scars, dark spots. I use the Clarisonic brush but not as often as I used to. I'm interested in a moisturizer, cleanser, oil, corrective pads or serum or both. I have even tried Dr. Dennis Gross but I can't say that they worked since I only had the smallest sample. So please shoot at me any good suggestions.

I need a new moisturizer! HELP?ebve
Hi there!   So I struggle with some acne every now and then, but not much anymore. Now it's usually just the dark spots/scars they left behind that I gotta deal with.. I also have combination skin!   I've been using Aveeno Positively Radiant Daily Moisturizer with SPF 15 and it's been nice, but now I'm almost done and I want to find something new! For daily use during the daytime   Help?   I was interested in Embryolisse's moisturizer because it apparently worked amazingly and it could double as a primer (and I started wearing BB cream so i guess that would be a plus?) but it's sold out everywhere so guess that wont work

Throw in the towel with this cleanser?
I used Olay cleansing clothes for the last 10 years, I get a pimple maybe twice a year but dry cheeks.  I started building up some nicer makeup/skin care and swapped out the cleansing cloths for the Precision Pore Cleansing Pad and Korres Milk Proteins Foaming Cleanser to help with the dryness.  I read in some reviews that there's an initial breakout period with the cleansing pad but I'm going on week four and I've had more acne than the last 2 years combined.     I'm I still in the "initial breakout period" or is this not working?  The dryness has improved but I'm getting tired of battling this and my T zone is taking a beating.

Alternative to Philosophy Purity Cleanser for Semi-Sensitive Combination Skin?
Hello all,   I have finally run out of my Philosophy cleanser and am eager to try something new.  I loved that it took all my makeup off and didn't further dry out my skin, but while the product itself didn't cause any breakouts, it wasn't preventing any hormone-related breakouts or doing anything super wonderful/noticeable for my skin. I am not looking for an acne treatment.  I ordered and am currently waiting to receive the Origins Checks and Balances cleanser, but if you have any other suggestions for me or have personal experience with Origins, I'm  all ears!   Skin concerns: -semi-sensitive -combination/dry -dull -hormonal breakouts -anti-againg? (not necessary, but would be a plus for prevention purposes)

Best oil-free moisturizer for winter?
Hello all,   With colder weather creeping in, I'm wondering what oil-free moisturizer is best to tackle drier winter skin. I have dry-combination skin (oily in the t-zone, dry cheeks/chin/ and especially the jawline) and therefore find that oil-free moisturizers work best with my skin.  I have been using Clinique's Dramatically Different Gel for a very long time and without issues in the spring and summer months, but find that it doesn't moisturize my dry areas enough in the fall/winter.  I have also tried Philosophy's "take a deep breath" oil-free moisturizer, but  it irritated and broke out my skin.    I would love to know of this type of product with anti-aging/SPF, but any help is appreciated!

COMBO VS OILY SKIN - HOW DO YOU TELL?!
Hi there! For years and years, I've been trying to figure out what skin type I have. I personally feel like its OILY - where if I wash my face at 8am, I feel like it's oily by noon. However, not every aspect of my face is oily. Definitely more so in the T-Zone. So then I thought, ok maybe I have combination skin. But in reading beauty advice/tips... it always says that the areas outside of the T-zone (cheeks) are usually dry and flakey. Which mine are NOT. My cheeks are normal.. oily by the end of day. But my forehead, nose, chin are oily all the time.    So, does that mean I have combination skin or oily skin?!

Cleansing oil for makeup removal/before cleanser?
Do you use cleansing oil primarily as a means to remove makeup and then follow up with cleanser?  I am considering implementing cleansing oil into my routine but I've never used it before, so I'm unsure.  I also have combination slightly oily skin with sporadic spot breakouts, so I'm afraid that cleansing oil could potentially make this worse.     If you do use cleansing oil, what do you use?  What do you recommend for someone with combination slightly oily skin that is concerned about breakouts (but also wants to focus on anti-aging)?     Thanks so much!
