Clairsonic Mia 3 vs Mia 2
Hi Ladies,    I need some help in deciding with Clairsonic to get. I've narrowed it down to either the Mia 2 or 3 and I can't seem to decide between the two. I'm really liking the holiday sets that are out.    A little about me: I have normal/combo skin, not acne prone or anything. My t-zone can get a little oily. I've been using Clinique's 3 Step # 2 for the past 10 years or so and I've been happy with it, but I think its time to add some deeper cleaning/exfoliating.   Is the Mia 3 with the Cashmere Brush Head worth the extra $50?  The  Mia 2 Hydra Cleanse Set comes with 2 brush heads - is that a better buy? I'm in Canada, so the prices I've noted are higher than the US prices.   $230 Mia 3 Holiday Gift Set Comes with: - White Mia 3/Aria  - Clarisonic Lux Cashmere Cleanse Brush Head  - Drying stand  - USB Enabled Universal Voltage pLink® Charger  - 1 oz Clarisonic Gentle Hydro Cleanser  - 0.1 oz Amorepacific Moisture Bound Rejuvenating Eye Treatment Gel  - 0.5 oz Caudalie Premier Cru The Cream  - 0.23 oz Algenist Advanced Anti-Aging Repairing Oil  - 5 Dr. Dennis Gross Skincare™ Alpha Beta® Peels, Original Formula    $180 Mia 2 Glow Holiday Set: - Joy Mia 2  - Sensitive Brush Head  - Protective Travel Case  - Universal Voltage pLink® Charger  - 3 oz Philosophy® Purity Made Simple Cleanser  - 0.5 oz Ole Henriksen Truth Serum® Collagen Booster  - 0.17 Bliss® Triple Oxygen® ex-'glow'-sion! Vitabead-infused moisture cream  - 4 Kate Somerville® Somerville360® Face Self Tanning Pad   $180 Mia 2 Winter Hydration Set: - Mia2™ Cleansing Brush  - 0.5 oz GLAMGLOW THIRSTYMUD™ Hydrating Treatment  - 2.0 oz First Aid Beauty Ultra Repair Cream  - 5 oz Boscia Purifying Cleansing Gel  - International pLink Charger for worldwide use      $180 Mia 2 Hydra Cleanse Set - Mia2™ Sonic Skin Cleansing Brush in Lavender  - Luxe Contour Brush Head - Satin Precision  - Luxe Facial Brush Head - Cashmere Cleanse  - 6 oz Gentle Hydro Cleanser  - International pLink Charger for worldwide use  - Protective travel case   I appreciate any help and opinions. Thanks! =)

Omorovicza - worth it?
I've been using an Eminence face wash for quite some time, but my current bottle is almost empty - so I'm thinking about trying something else. Does anyone have any thoughts on Omorovicza's Cleansing Foam? I know the line gets rave reviews in some circles, but I'm wondering if the Cleansing Foam is worth the $75 (Canadian). I'd love to know your experiences! Thank you.

Cleanser and Moisturizer for Oily/Dry Skin?
I have extremely oily skin but it seems like if i wash my face once a day its super oily but if i wash it twice a day it becomes dry. i do have acne but not extremely severe, more like little tiny pimples pop up on my cheeks forehead and chin mostly. I have dark spots due to the acne and at times my skin has been dry like a bone on my cheeks or chin and then my nose and forehead is extremely oily so i don't know what to do or what is going on with my skin! My skin is not smooth anymore and seems like dull! Also i can't find a moisturizer perfect for my skin. It either moisturizes too much and my face becomes oily or it doesn't sink into my skin and doesn't make my skin look or feel smooth. I have been using the First Aid Beauty Face Cleanser and it helps clean my skin and smooths it out well but i'm hoping for something better maybe? Can anyone help me please!

Maybe I don't have oily skin?! (And help: cleanser!)
A month ago I posted about how I'm searching for new skincare products since basically all of mine either had or were about to run out. The suggestions were SUPER helpful, and I've implemented some of them since then. I was able to pick up a small tube of my regular moisturizer (Clinique Dramatically Different Gel) so I could continue with that and just focus on finding a new cleanser. I'm still using the Korres Wild Rose at night. No toner since it's all gone. And I'm only using my Clarisonic twice a week now, and the Korres Pomegranate scrub once a week. (And I've been using these for a while now.)   As for cleanser, I've been using some different samples lately (deluxe, so I could use them for a longer period of time - Ren Evercalm Gentle Cleansing Milk, Origins Checks and Balances, and now Philosophy Purity Made Simple.) My skin doesn't feel "off" when cleaning - it feels fresh? It feels much better with moisturizer, but it isn't uncomfortable if I don't use any (and that only happens very rarely.)    I've been paying more attention to my skin lately and I'm wondering if maybe it ISN'T oily, after all?! I'm really only getting oily on my forehead & nose lately. And even then it isn't too bad. My cheeks don't really get oily. In the morning, it just seems to be my nose that is oily and I suspect that has something to do with using the Wild Rose cream at night. If I'm consistent with cleansing/moisturizing, my skin doesn't really get any dry patches, though. Although my chin can be a little iffy (that's where I tend to get blackheads/breakouts).    I started breaking out after using the Ren for a week, and that's continued with the Philosophy one too. Any thoughts or suggestions? I'd like to find something I can use consistently, but I've thought I had oily skin for so long and now that I'm not sure, it feels overwhelming and I'm unsure of what to look for!    ETA: My skin is also a bit uneven with freckles/discoloration. I like my freckles, and I know sunscreen is important with this. But I just want to keep my skin healthy.

Bumps around beginning of eyebrows?
Whenever I put on foundation (any kind), YSL, Chanel, Tarte, NARS, Bobbi Brown, Urbay Decay, they all make the begging of my eyebrows look bumpy and maybe a little dry. You can't see it unless your up close. Of course I can see it with my magnifying mirror after I had applied my foundation. I have dry/combination skin, nothing out of ordinary. The skin around my cheeks and chin can get a tad "dry" not dry in a sense of flakiness or irritation, just a bit dehydrated (nothing a little moisturizer won't fix). My forehead, and nose can get oily as the day goes on. Again, nothing out of the ordinary. I use the NYX matt spray and that keep me less oily (really impressed with this stuff!). Any suggestions on what will make my foundation around my eyebrows look smooth?

Goood foundation and primer for oily/normal skin?
So this is my lovely boyfriend, and for the sake of our cosplays/costumes for a convention in August he has agreed to wear foundation.     His cheeks are normal, but in his t zone he gets really oily. Plus, his cheeks occasionally get and stay red out of no where...so something that can cover that just in case would be nice. I have dry skin so I have noooo idea what brands to even start looking at when it comes to primer and foundation. So I've come to you ladies and gents! Plus, what are some good blotting papers? I've heard those are good for oily people, but again, opposite end of the spectrum so I have no real idea.
