Currently I wash my face AM and PM. I use eye cream and day cream w/spf & night cream. I also use my clarisonic every other day. I feel like im missing something because my face looks so blah. Anything else that is a must to include in my daily facial regimen?
Hi all, I'm going to China for three week in October and I know that the smog and air is going to do a number on my skin. Does anyone have any skin products that you know can combat smog? In my neck of the woods in Canada, we don't get too much smog so I've never needed smog-specific skin care. Thanks in advance!
I turned 29, and my skin decided to rebel on me with cystic and chin acne. I've tried multiple face washes and moisturizers and nothing has helped. Anyone have advice on how I should change my skincare for my 30 yo skin? I have combo-oily, light Hispanic skin. Thanks!
So I bought the Estee Lauder Double Wear and I love it, the only issue is my little greaseball nose! I've tried the Benefit Porefessional, CoverFX Mattifying Primer, and the Hourglass Mineral Veil and nothing has worked longer then 5 or 6 hours so far. Please help. D:
hey! I am looking for foundation for my dry/comb skin my nose , eyelids and underneath my eyes gets really shiny but the other parts of my face is dry I use a heavy moisturizer everyday so I don't have to surfer for extremmly dry skin (maybe that's why I get super shiny) I have been told that I have great skin I don't have any acne or pimples but I do suffer with discoulartion I just want something lightweight that can even my skintone without my skin looking super oily and/or dewy but not looking matte and/or dry keep in mind that have a deeper complexion and not a lot of brands have foundation color for myself (color iq is 1r14) I have netural undertone which makes it hard find a great color match due to the fact foundations are either too red for me so then I look weird or too yellow making me appear ashy im right in the middle Spoiler (Highlight to read) thanks for your time I really do appreciate your help
Hello, I have combo skin. Usually I suffer hormonal acne in the T-zone. I want to know people's opinions on these products: Glamglow Supermud Clearing Treatment Kate Somerville EradiKate Acne Treatment Kate Somerville EradiKate Mask Foam-Activated Acne Treatment Which one has worked the best? I heard that the Glamglow masks dry out fast even when the container is half full. But I had a sample of the Glamglow Youthmud Tinglexfoliate Treatment and I noticed that my skin felt smoother and somehow different. Can't describe it. The only product that I have used is PTR's complexion pads. Recently switched from gentle to max so I will see how that works. Also read some reviews on here that the two Kate Somerville products work well together.... Thank you ladies!!!
Hello Beauties! I am looking for a night cream for my combination skin. I am hoping for something that is hydrating, moisturizing, and rejuvenating for my skin. I know that these products can be pricy, so I am looking for something that is WORTH the investment. Any suggestions? XOXO Sarah
Hello ladies and gentlemen, I have a question: I am looking at sunscreen for the face. I am 24 and I currently have Boscia B.B. Cream Broad Spectrum SPF 27 PA++ and I rarely use it since I consider it more of a make-up item and I don't wear make up. I was wondering what is a good sunscreen, preferably not tinted but if there is one that has the same texture as the Boscia one and looks very natural and maybe adapts to the skin tone (since my skin tone ranges during the seasons). I would greatly appreciate your advice!
Hello. I have combination skin and I am looking for bb cream. I want something that won't make me break out and I've been using Proactive+ so I hope the bb cream won't make my skin worse. I want something that covers my acne as well as post-acne marks, has SPF, won't come off from sweat because I do a lot of dance performances, lasts all day and does not give a flakey look. Maybe a natural or glowey look? Makes me look fresh or clear? Not sure if a matte look is for me. Please help!
I'm looking for a peel that would be closest to my dermatologist office's chemical peel for acne & acne scarring. I had this done at their office two weeks ago to experience Zero peeling (I was told I should indeed peel if I'd left it on long enough for my skin's needs). I can't have it done again for a month for insurance reasons - any input on a strong product to mimic this in-house service? I've only tried the Ole Lemon Strip Flash Peel and thought it was decent.. I have combo, medium-toned skin with near-constant clogged pores (& blackheads) around my t zone (& nose), especially with the warmer weather. I have acne scarring with some pitting and discoloration/ dark spots as well. I use my Clarisonic Mia 3 once a day (& love it!) with REN's Rosa Centifola Cleansing Balm, KS toner & Murad Essntial C Day Moisturizer, which has SPF 30. At night I use a homemade serum, alternated with my Retin A. Thanks guys!! **The peel at my dermas was some % glycolic acid and 15% TCA
Ladies, if you have not placed an order this week- you must! Sephora is offering a 100pt fresh Rose Face Mask. This mask is to die for. If you leave it on for a full 10 minutes, your skin will be in heaven! I am praying they make this in a lotion or something. The full size is $62.00. http://www.sephora.com/rose-face-mask-P12336?keywo rd=FRESH%20Rose%20Face%20Mask%20P12336&skuId=56209 ...
Alright, I know I have been asking lots of questions lately but I need some help: -what is an exfoliator used for, how often to use it and the best one out there -what is a toner, how often to use it and the best one out there -morning and night oils -morning and night cleansers I currently have Caudalie Polyphenol C15 Overnight Detox Oil and it works great, I also have Caudalie Vinoperfect Radiance Serum, Caudalie Mask (I believe it's the purifying one), First Aid Beauty Moisturizer which I am happy with, Tatcha Oil Cleanser and PTR Gentle Complexion Pads. My skin is combination type and my main concern is pores (on my cheeks are kind of big but they have gotten smaller), blackheads on the nose and all over the face, whiteheads, clogged pores and pesky under the skin acne. I want to aim for products that aren't too harsh or that dry out my skin. I am open to other cleansers since mine is about to run out. I kind of want to stick to an oil cleanser but I am open to buying another cleanser for my night routine. Or just for someone to give me advice on what to use and when. Also, I have dark circles under my eyes and veins (which I know no cosmetic treatment will cure). So I am looking for a good eye cream. I have a Clarisonic but I think that either: 1) I continue using it with a good cleanser and not oil based since I don't feel like they work together or 2) stop using the Clarisonic and substitute it with an exfoliator or anything else. Also any good emergency acne treatments for the before mentioned problem areas. Thank you ladies and thank you for being patient with me.
Hello, I am in need for recommendations for a good cleanser that won't dry out my face. I am currently using Tatcha oil cleanser and I am quite happy with it. But what I find bothersome is that it doesn't effectively work with my Clarisonic. Should I get a different cleanser or should I buy an exfoliator (like the Algenist) and maybe refrain from using my Clarisonic?
I'm looking for recommendations for a good morning cleanser, that I can keep and use in the shower. In the last few months, I've tried both Purity Made Simple and Origins Cheeks and Balance. I really like the Origins cleanser and may purchase again, but I want to see if anyone has recommendations for something else. I use what I consider to be stronger cleansers at night (glamglow youthcleanse or supercleanse, and 2-3 nights a week I use the Fresh soy exfoliant), but I really don't think these would hold up well being kept in the shower and are a bit too abrasive for my morning routine. My skin is combination, and not too much sensitivity. Any recommendations would be greatly appreciated!
That's right. I'm 25 yrs old and all I've ever used on my face is Dove Bar soap. No moisturizer, eye creams, exfoliaters, etc. I'm pretty confused on what products to use and what order to use these products. Do i use: cleanser, face mask, toner, moisturizer? How often do I use a facial scrub? I have large pores on my nose, how do i fix that? I do have my eye on a few things that I want to try out from the website. Some more specifics about my skin 1. I have a oily t zone and eye lids. Rest of my face is normal. 2. Some acne scars on my fore head. Just a few small spots. 3. Faint crows feet 4. I'm having a minor breakout right now on my fore head and a little bit on my temples. It's a little bit red, but skin toned bumps? (I'm African American) Thank you!
I am looking for parabens, sulphates free serum for night routine for my dry-combination skin, i am 25 years old, suggestions please... I am considering OLE HENRIKSEN Truth Serum® Vitamin C Collagen Booster, any one here used it? is it good for my skin? any other serum suggestions?
Hello ladies, Hope you all are enjoying the warm weather! I am interested in buying new products or add products to my regiment. So my goal is to get healthy, radiant, even toned skin and not have to use make-up (yet). I am 24 and I am currently using these products: before going to sleep, I wash my face using Tatcha Pure Step Camellia Cleansing Oil (every so often I use my Clarisonic but I was also thinking of getting a new one soon since mine is a little beat up), then I use Peter Thomas Roth Gentle Complexion Correction Pads, then I put Caudalie's Polyphenol C15 Overnight Detox Oil. In the morning I use facial wipes (like by Simple), then I apply the Caudalie Vinoperfect Radiance Serum and at last I put First Aid Beauty Ultra Repair Cream Intense Hydration. All of these products have helped me battle dryness during the winter season and I will definitely be buying them again. But I feel like there is something else that can help me with my concerns: acne (rare as it is), the scarring and just the overall health and radiance of my skin. I can definitely say that my skin has improved but usually around my period, I break out and the area I usually break out is around the chin area. What I am looking for is products that will not dry my face out, help even out my tone, get rid of acne, blemishes and scarring, anti-aging (? not sure if it's too early but I have been using products that I am pretty sure fight aging), softness and hydration. I am interested in oils, toners, cleansers (having one for the night and morning since I find it hard to use the Tatcha on the Clarisonic). Anything you ladies recommend, I am eager to look up and try if it will work for me. Thank you!
Hi! I am looking for a serum or treatment to reduce the look of pores, redness and to over all just perfect my skin so I can wear less make up. I am 22 so anti aging isn't a huge concern. My skin isn't too sensitive but I do get mild break outs here and there so I don't want anything too heavy. I've seen good reviews on the Lancôme visionnaire texture perfector (it claims to do all the things I've asked for) but I've heard it has a lot of alcohol in it. Any one know if this is a good serum or if there is anything else to help me with my skin? Thank you so much!
I cannot afford a dermatologist so I'm coming to you guys for help! I have combination acne prone skin. I currently use a clarisonic brush with the cleanser that came with it but it dries my skin out. I also have enlarged pores, acne scars, and dark spots. My skin tends to be very oily or very dry. And my skin isn't as plump as it used to be. Can anyone recommend some products that can help me with my problematic skin?
Hello all, I have acne prone very sensitive skin. I use quite a few oil free products I am quite satisfied right now with the clearness of skin, I would like advice on adding a few anti-aging steps and a couple of other things. The skincare products I currently use are: 1. Purity-don't love this-looking for a new cleanser 2. Kate Somerville Toner-love this use 2x daily 3. Kate Somerville Oil Free Moisturizer love this use 2x times daily 4. Tarte Eye Cream-will not be repurchasing-2x a day 5. Tarte Neck Cream-OK 6. Glam Glow Super Mud Cleanser and PTR Blemish Buffing Beads-use 1x or 2x a week. 7.Peter Thomas Roth Max Completion Pads-use 1x or 2x a week 8. Variety of Glam Glow Masks-rotate one about 1x week as needed 9. Dr. Brandts- Crease Release-meh jury is still out on this one. 10. Glam Glow Bright Mud actually love these but I use very sparsely because of the expense. If I were to buy one or two more of the Glam Glow Cleansers (LOVE this line) and use the Glam Glow Cleansers exclusively, would that be too harsh for my skin? Also, looking at Kate Somerville's Gentle Wash as the Detox cleanser is too harsh for my skin. I want to try and add a serum to my routine but so many have caused me to breakout. I am also allergic to retinol. i have forehead fine lines and the parenthesis staring around my mouth. I am noticing a bit of firmness change around my check area. Will a serum enhance the Dr. Brandt's Crease Release at all? I am dying to try the Korres Black Pine serum and line. Do I need to try to try the entire line to see results or will the serum help on it's own. Yes, Sephora does offer a Black Pine kit but the serum isn't included which is a bummer for me. lol Any feedback? Serums that I have tried and had an adverse reaction to are: Kate Somerville's Oil Free Quench PTR Oil Free Unwrinkle Serum Tarte Maracuja Oil Ole's Truth Serum Josie M. Argan Oil Heard so many mixed results with the Clarasonic with my skintype. Some say it works wonders and their skin has never been clearer and cleaner and others have told me, don't buy this as it just makes your skin worse. When I called the Rouge Line to get some advice, they said just use it once or twice a week but then how is that suppose to help the clarity of your skin if it only deep cleans once or twice a week? Lastly, need advice on Essences. Heard so much about the SK II. Would I use an Essense in place of my toner? Wouldn't it make me more oily? I know this is a very long post but would love some advice! Thank you!
Trying to maybe clear up my issues with some pictures of my skin- it's not really acne that I think is my problem it's more uneven skin tone and marks or discoloration- in the light you can see an uneven texture and makeup doesn't look smooth- I get occasional whiteheads or pimples but not all over Again in I wan using adapalene but haven't seen results clearing up the issues I see it just gets flaky and irritated- I am looking into glycol ic acid or some other regimen to try , any advice will help!m
So I've recently posted much about my skin care concerns and asked for suggestions (bumpy like texture, some discoloration, some acne clogged pores) I've been using adapalene cream prescribed by my derm for awhile and it's not really showing much results and leaves me with dry flaky or irritated skin........ ive been looking into and very curious about ditching the adapalene and trying glycolic acid- I'm looking for product recommendations and any experiences with this I currently use fresh soy cleanser, dr jart water fuse gel,sea berry oil thanks!!!
