What is the best face cleanser for combination skin? I am 47 and have sensitive skin and prefer something that you use with water and rinse off. I used to love Claudalie face wash, but they changed their formula (maybe added olive oil or something) and the new formula was awful.
Do you all use sunscreen even in the wintertime? I've been using it religiously during the summer. But up here in Canada, we don't get much sun during the winter. I know that UV rays still penetrate even on cloudy/dark days, but just wanted to know that I'm not crazy for still applying sunscreen in October!
I'm kind of at a loss here as I really have no idea what my skin needs.. I keep buying products that end up not working for me. The area around my nose is very dry and so is my forehead, however, my forehead gets extremely oily throughout the day. My pores are huge, I have a ton of blackheads around my nose area and on my chin. I've recently tried Hope in a Jar but it made my skin incredibly greasy and caused my skin to break out. The purity cleanser that I got with it was extremely drying for my skin. Also just tried the oil free moisterizer from Kate Somerville which I thought was working great, but after 3 days my skin had another breakout. I'm looking for anything and everything. Moisterizers, serums, cleansers, exfoliators, day/night creams.. Thanks for the help!
When my Fresh soy moisturizer ran out, I was so upset to find out that it had been discontinued. It worked so well for my combination/break-out prone skin. The weather is turning colder where I live, which is already starting to lead to dryness and breakouts for me. I'm definitely in need of a comparable replacement-- any suggestions?
So I have friends who work for both companies and each swears by their own products. I've been a slacker in terms of skin care and want to find a good regimen to commit to. Any thoughts about these two brands? Or is there a third one that will show more dramatic results? My biggest concerns: - Puffy dark circles around my eyes - Wrinkles around eyes (not super strong, if I have to pick one, the puffiness is worse) - Skin is rougher on cheeks but I get pimples in my chin more often then I think it's fair Maybe three times a month or so... There's one starting right now So I think maybe something with retin acid could help...
I recently purchased the Glamglow Supermud Mask. I was just wondering, how many times a week do people use the mask? I know on the instructions it says to apple as often as needed, but was wondering what other people's suggestions are. Also, did it help with redness or random breakouts? How quick did people see results? Thanks!
Hi I am in my last trimester for my pregnancy how are Lancôme products are they safe. I have combination skin vs Clinique I am so confused tried a lot of products I ahav e some blemishes and scarring but my forehead is uneven and I have congestion please help
Anyone have any suggestions as for a cheaper alternative to Eve Lom Cleanser? I use Retin A and am near-constantly resurfacing & need something as effective for exfoliation. I have combination skin w scarring from acne - old and new. Thank you for ANY input!
Hi all, I've had a Clarisonic for about 3 years now, and I'm curious to hear from others who use them to find out what cleansers you use with yours? I never liked the texture of any of the samples that came with my machine, so I've been using Bliss' Fabulous Foaming Face Wash. It does a nice job, but lately I feel like I've gotten complacent and have been restless to try something new. Any suggestions? I have combination skin and use the sensitive brush head. I tried the luxe brushes a while back but found they felt like they weren't doing anything.
I have very sensitve combination skin, I tend to get really oily on my t-zone and around the sides of my nose, could anyone recommend toners that won't irritate my skin but will help with my oiliness? Thanks!
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.
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!

I am 23 years old, I have kind combination skin, oily/dry/blackheads. I need to start a skin regiment, I'm just not sure what steps to take or what products to use, I've used some origins and some Clinique and also all natural organic things. My main issue is the blackheads
Recently I received a PM from Sephora thanking me for my participation on BT and offering to send me a free full sized gift. Today I received a full size NUDE Brightening Fizzy Powder Wash. http://www.sephora.com/product/productDetail.jsp?k eyword=nude%20brightening%20fizzy&skuId=1629286&pr ... The back says: This effervescent powder wash brightens skin for a glowing complexion with multiple sources of Vitamin C. Powerful enzymes work together with all-natural rose hip and vanilla seeds for skin-clearing exfoliation, eliminating dull skin and impurities. With omega-rich acai berry, Inca gold and virgin coconut oils, this treatment exfoliator smooths and softens while refining skin. Super pumped to try it tonight!
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!
i use the foundation make up forever my shade is (N173 TE14a ) i would like to purchase a shade in the face powder can you assist me ? my mom also has a sephora card how to use it while purchasing products from your site
I'm a 50+. My eye area is very dry--needs hydration. Not many lines. My skin is sensitive to products with fragrance. Could you suggest which ones I should look at. Thanks very much. Kendall Malloy email@example.com
Does anybody have an eye cream/treatment serum they can recommend for the cross-hatching under the eye area? Cross-hatching looks like little "x's" and are very fine. I've started noticing these under the eye area lately. I was told in Sephora that Origins makes an eye cream that mentions cross-hatching in its beneficial uses.
I recently moved to TN from MN, and the humidity is seriously clogging my pores and causing me to breakout on my chest and causing white and blackheads around my nose and chin. Is there any products or remedies I should try to clear this up?
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.
What is the best product to remove eye and face makeup at the time? I recently bought Dior cleansing oil and it do not remove mascara and texture is too sticky for me. I want to find a better product to replace it. Thanks for your suggestions
Hello, I love the thristy mud as well as the super mud and have had GREAT results from both but worried that my skin is on the oily side and acne prone. Anyone with my skin type have feedback on this mask?
Right now I have quite a bit left in both jars I am using. If I were to purchase backups for 4x points, would they still be usable months from now if I keep them in the box and sealed? Has anyone done this before?
I'm trying to decide between the 3 types of cleansers from Boscia but have trouble doing so. I've heard great things about the black detoxifying cleanser so I was about to order them but they have "less great ratings" than the clear complexion or the other white cleanser. I have combination acne prone skin, a bit sensitive, some pores kind of skin, and I'm planning on using them with my clarisonic
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?
