I am in search of a skin care routine that will even out my skin tone (redness in my cheeks I have had all of my life as well as acne scars). I am interested in finding a routine that includes all of the works (cleanser, toner, serums, etc) for what might work for my combination skin. I am in my mid-20s and concerned about aging so I would like the moisturizer to include SPF for day wear.
I received a sample of Josie Maran Oil, I believe it was the newest one (The Citizen one?) and I think it felt too heavy and was hard to distribute. Is there a lighter facial oil that moisturizes but isn't heavy? My targets are dryness, skin complexion and eventual acne.
I have combination Dry/Oily Sensitive mature skin. Since menopause I'm having to change everything . It's been overwhelming. There are areas on my face that I'll have to dab heavier moisturizer on some days. I just need something that I can put all over my face & add other creams/lotions on specific areas as needed.
I totally missed out on the deal - I saw it on site before they e-mailed it but I stuttered buying it... So question is, what's you're favorite sunscreen? It doesn't have to be in the kits... just in general
Hope to hear some recommendations of detox face masks low and high end. Looking for a line up for a blog post with a detox story. Thanks so much in advance! I currently have Skin Authority and malin+goetz in rotation. Wondering what else is out there that gets good feedback. http://www.inhautepursuit.com
Hi, I'm looking for an oil free moisturizer and cleanser for sensitive/combo skin. Preferably I'd like to find a cleanser that isn't overly drying or moisturizing. I normally use Body Shops aloe gentle foaming cleanser and their vitamin e moisturizers. However, I've developed a form of dermatitis and my doctor said its due to the heavy moisturizer. Help?
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.
Hi I am turning 30 soon,so looking for a serum to add in my routine that can help prevent aging.I tried OH truth serum but did not like much and I thought it gives me breakouts.I also tried FAB radiance serum as well and I liked it bu I am not sure how effective it was but atleast did not break out.My skin is normal with lil bit oliy T -zone and I get breakout very easliy as soon as I switch product I have been using Korres milk protein foam cleanser (Can't find it anywhere ,so purity made simple for now) and Caudalie Vinosource Moisturizing Sorbet .
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?
I know I am supposed to moisturize my neck, but I can't get myself to use my expensive face moisturizer on it. (it's a lot of surface area and I would go broke) It is not a problem area for me, so I have been using less expensive drugstore brand face moisturizer on my neck and chest. I noticed that Sephora sells numerous neck creams but they seem to be more for firming, and are pretty pricey also. This got me wondering... What do you use to moisturize your neck?
I've never used self tanner before and was hoping some of you would give me insight into your routine. I was planning on showering and exfoliating. I wasn't sure if I should moisturize as the video I've watched says apply to "clean, dry skin".but I've heard some people say they moisturize their elbows, knees, feet and hands. Should I do that? Should I moisturize the rest of my body as well? What about the type of moisturizer - thin, lotion type for quick absorption would seem best to me. Then I was going to apply the self tanner, wait for it to dry and go to bed. Finally, I want to protect my new tan so not sure if there is any specific sun protection I should use or would just regular sun block be OK or will it take my tan away?

I've been trying to think of a gift that might not exist or is rare in Canada.. preferably an eye cream, night cream or something for woman in her early 50s. She's just my former landlord and don't want to spend too much, but not something too cheap so I can show my appreciation She has combination skin..
Hi! I'm 23 years old and I'm looking for a new skincare routine. I have combination skin (oily T-zone with a occasionnal pimples) and I don't think my skin is very sensitive. However, I've read that toner are better without alchool... Which brand should I try? I've heard about CLINIQUE, Origins and Boscia. Does anyone knows which one is the best?
Hi, guys! So, I'm in need of a mask or cleanser that will help clear out blackheads or minimize them. I have them pretty bad on my nose and I get a few on my cheeks near my nose. My skin is normal, not oily, not dry. It's also not very sensitive. I've only got one mask that actually pulls the blackheads out, and it's Glamglow. The only problem is if I use two times in a row, the mask doesn't work the third time and I have to try something else. After using other masks, it works again two times and then I have to switch again. One other mask that helps a little is the Peter Thomas Roth Sulfur Cooling Masque. It helps but not that much. Other than that nothing else really has any effect on them, though. I've tried Exfolikate, but it dried out my skin and left the sides of my nose raw and my skin isn't even sensitive. It also had no effect on my blackheads. I've tried the Boscia Luminzing Black Mask and the Purifying Pore Strips and neither of those do anything but pull off dead skin. Sorry that's so long Thank you so much in advance!
Hello beautifuls...are you a believer in double cleansing?? If not why and if yes what products have you used in combination that have left you with happy balanced skin?? I have been experimenting first with the cleansing oils (Shu Uemeria Purifying when travelling, Murad Rejuvenating in AM, Clinique Take the Day Off Cleansing in PMl) vs actual pure oils first to remove waterproof SPF/makeup and then a creamy cleanser ( Algenist Gentle Rejuvenating Cleanser) or a foaming cleanser. Occasionally I would add an intermediate step such as a mild scrub or salicylic acid wash if I feel I need extra help with congestion. First I must say I prefer cleansing oils due to their emulsification abilities with water. What combinations have you tried??
Hey guys, I'm wondering if it's ok to use multiple face cleansers? I'm currently using Cerave foaming facial cleanser and I like it but I've also just ordered Purity by Philosophy and Checks and Balances by Origins (product junkie)! Would it be ok to rotate through these cleansers? If so, how often should I switch them? I've read that your face may get used to a cleanser so you should switch but I've also heard it can be quite bad for your skin. So confusing Thanks in advance for all the help!
I really like my cleanser.It s not available in stores or online . http://www.sephora.com/milk-proteins-foaming-cream -cleanser-P270709?skuId=1247931 where else can I find it or what will be the best replacement for it ?
Hello there, I'm looking for recommendations on a skincare line that is safe to use while pregnant. I have combination skin and live in Florida, so I don't want anything that is really heavy. Any suggestions?
Hello! I have combination skin (super oily on the ''T'' zone and super dry on the chin and cheeks). I wanted to know which everyday routine do you guys recommend to have a fresh and natural looking ! (foundation, concealer and setting powder). Thank you.
Hi. This question is more about solving problems for the future then issues now. I'm 26, very fair with red undertone and not any real problems. With the sale on I've been thinking this might be the time to try things I should be doing for the benefit of my skin in the future, but I have zero ideas what that would be. The specifics are as follows: I'm super fair and don't tan. I tend to red, especially in the cheeks, but it doesn't bother me especially once foundation is on, so I don't really worry about it. I'm not super dry, but I tend toward drier as opposed to oily. I get the occasional blackhead and breakout on my forehead and more than occasional on my chin, but they aren't too big or bad and don't worry me. I also get the occasional white head around the temple region. I wash in the morning and at night with a cetaphil bar for dry/sensitive skin (I occasionally have dermal allergic reactions) and wear an spf 15 with moisturizer every day. At night, on top of the soap, I use neutrogena makeup remover wipes to help with stubborn mascara, wash that residue off, and put on moisturizer especially around the eyes. I don't have any real skincare concerns now, but I want to make sure I don't kick myself for not doing something 5, 10, 15 years down the line. Thanks for any advice!
I finally bought a Clarisonic! Yay! But now...I'm thinking ahhh!! Do I need to update my skincare routine? I have combination skin. Breakouts and dryness are not abnormal at the same time for me. I'm curious what everyone is currently doing for skincare morning and night ? When do you use your Clarisonic? When do you use your masks? Exfoliates? Thanks in advance everyone!
Hey everyone. I just bought the Philosophy purity one-step face wash a week ago. Just wanted to try it out. and I love it! so now I'm looking to start using more products. I have mostly oily skin. What is everyones favorite product(s)? I am interested in trying a moisturizer but also interested in the other products but don't know much about this line. Anyone with oily skin- what products do you like? or work well for your skin? Any comments welcome
