Hello!! I recently visited a Sephora store and I was looking for something for the night that will serve as preventative for fine lines and etc. Now I am only 25 but I have been using Caudalie Detox Night Oil and I love it. I got a sample of Black Pine Antiwrinkle Firming & Lifting Night Cream and I love it! The smell is amazing and I feel like it brightened my skin and the texture is smoother and it just looks better. Can I actually use it? And should I try it with the other Korres Night products?
Up until 3 months ago I had ideal skin. A zit once and a while but that was it. But then I broke out with dermatitis and its been a long recovery. As it stands I have a fine forehead and cheeks, my chin area and AROUND my nose like the bottom where the nostrils are is very dry and keep breaking out and it feels like a vicious cycle. Normally I have a somewhat oily forehead, and chin. Then a very oily nose. And the rest dry. So with that. I am wondering what do you think would be best for me? Mia? Mia 2? Mia 3? The Olay brand of this kind of thing? Or one of the Clinique brands of this? Any advice would be great. Thank you!
i have pretty normal skin not allergic to anything not oily not dry no acne and pretty much great skin . lately i feel like its been dull cause i dont drink so much water or take vitamins so i was wondering how great would the boscia tsubaki oil be ? i used a sample and liked it but want to know if its really effective in the long run and if there might be anything better?
After i get out of the shower i have SUPER dry skin. I use neutrogena face wash i the shower, which helps with acne/breakouts. I haven't found a moisutrizer that works. I put nothing on my face and two hours later my skin is super oily. Not sure what i should be using for a moisturizer or facewash. Before having kids about 2 years ago i use to use marykay and it seemed to help.
Hello! I'm looking for a gentle but effective cleanser for my sensitive skin, i'm currently using the Caudalie instant foaming cleanser. I love the smell but it's not really doing its job; I feel super clean afterwards but I think I have more breakouts than ever and i've had two styes! Granted, this is not necessarily from the cleanser but it is really the only thing that has changed in my routine. I would really appreciate some suggestions as it's so hard to pick just one from the many options Sephora offers. It is really important to me that the product isn't tested on animals. It doesn't necessarily need to be all natural, just good for my skin! For some reference, i've tried the Ole African Red Tea cleanser (broke me out), the Fresh soy cleanser (didn't feel clean/cleansing), and various cleansers targeting towards acne (not using them anymore as i've found them to be ineffective and full of harsh chemicals). Thanks in advance!
Hi BTgals, My skin's been misbehaving for the past couple of weeks now and I am desperately trying to find out why. Here's what happened: I used to have quite dry, dehydrated skin but I got into a proper skincare regime about 6 mnths back and that helped a lot with the dryness. My skin is now more on the normal side, but I still take care of the dehydration. Breakouts were never a problem for me but of late, I have been having a few of these medium-sized pimples on my face that have whiteheads but just sit there for weeks. I have a problem of hyperpigmentation, so they invariably leave a scar. I'm desperately trying to narrow down the causes (I know that they might be internal too) by first looking at my skincare products. A couple of things I've discovered are: - My skin breaks out more when I use my fave hydrating mask - the Origins Drink Up Intensive. This used to be a fave of my dry skin but right now, looks like my skin is producing enough oil on it's own so I should leave this one out. - My cleanser isn't working properly, which is why I am posting here. I use the Clinique Take the Day Off Balm with a washcloth. However, I've noticed that if I use a cotton ball with a toner (non-alcohol) across my face after I cleanse, some grime/dirt still appears. And I only single cleanse, so this dirt may be clogging up my pores. I do not want to use a harsh, stripping cleanser, of course, but if any of you have any suggestions for a good cleanser normal, dehydrated skin, then pl let me know! I really need one! Also, if any of you have experienced anything that I am going through now, do share. Sorry for the ramble!
Hi, I'm looking for a line of products (day/night time moisturizer and eye cream) to target the problems that typically develop when someone hits 30 (dullness/uneven skin tone, fine line etc). I generally have normal skin with very few dark spots/marks.With respect to the eye cream- I do have very dark circles... Any recommendations would be grea
I have an oily t-zone and therefore contouring my nose is difficult as product slides off (TMI). What is the best product to contour your nose if you have an oily t-zone? My second question: I have some small bumps from a reaction to my foundation. These bumps don't seem to go away at all despite cleansing. It's not acne, just skin-colored bumps (not milia either). Just seems to be a reaction to my foundation but the reaction hasn't cleared up as it should- just a few bumps not in a cluster either or in abundance anywhere on the face. The bumps are just here and there. What product or cleanser would I use to get rid of these bumps? Would I need to exfoliate more or stay away from exfoliating etc? Any suggestions?
Hi, I'm trying to feel more confident without foundation. I don't have acne or anything but my skin is very, very uneven.. especially compared to the skin on my neck/collarbone area. I have redness around my nose and cheeks that bothers me and also some discolored spots. I really want the skin on my face to be even or atleast look better than what it is! lol Any product recommendations would be awesome! I've been skimming through the posts about this same topic but I'm looking for some more recent suggestions
Hi guys! I have combination skin. My T zone gets really oily easily even though I use mattifying primers, and my cheeks tend to get dry. I am interested in buying a foundation that will suit my needs but I am not sure which one's the best for me. Also, I heard other people saying that I might be oily but have dehydrated skin, how can I solve my problem?? Thanks in advance!
Hey everyone! So I'm looking for a facial cleanser, that not only removes makeup, but is made with good ingredients, BUT, it has to be from the drugstore... I don't have the extra money right now for a higher end face wash, (hoping to get Purity made simple from Philosophy when I have more cash!) But I need something now to hold me off until then.. I have tried Neutrogena deep cleansing face wash( cant remember the whole name...) I like it a lot, I've used it for years, along with switching between that and Purity, from Philosophy, but the Neutrogena one stings my eyes if I try to clean off my makeup while washing my face... I hope someone has a good recommendation! Thanks!! PS. (If it helps any, I have combo skin )
Hi everyone!I need some product recommendations for uneven, textured skin. My skin is completely clear, but it has bumpiness and a rough looking texture on cheeks and forehead. It's not like little pimples or distinct bumps-more of an overall roughness and bumpy texture. I am looking to try a new skincare product, preferably some sort of oil or moisturizer rather an a whole system because it is likely I won't stick to it then. My skin type is dry except for my nose, which is always shiny. Thank you!
I have bad eczema around my my eyes and above my upper lip - my skin is dry in general but I still get lots of spots. Have you any ideas as to how I can cover my eczema with makeup without making it look worse? Also what do you think I should use on my face that help the spots without drying my skin further / on my eczema that won't encourage spots? Thanks
Hey guys! My skin is acting up again and therefore I need some help/advice with of the skincare products and what I should do to improve my skin. Skin condition current: Dry combination. Very dry, flaky chin but super oily in the T-zone and on the nose-cheek areas. Sensitive. Acne-prone. Hyper-pigmented. Irritated easily Skincare routine: Face wash: La Roche Posay Effaclar for Ance prone skin (used it in the summer, loved it! Improved my skin a lot) Toner: Peter Thomas Roth Un-Wrinkle Turbo Line Smoothing Toning Lotion Moisturiser: La Roche Posay Toleriane Ultra Hydrating (new, doesnt do much so maybe that's why my skin is acting up) My skin is getting more pimples and underskin acne (kinda like sebaceous filaments) recently and I don't know why. Maybe it's because of the new skin products. Please help! I do appreciate any advices. Thanks!!
I don't know what to call these - they seem like raised bumps on my skin, and look really prominent if I have a base (foundation, BB cream) on. They never develop into full blown acne/pimples - I have them under my eyes (closer to the cheeks/nose) and all along the bridge of my nose. My skin type is normal - dry, and feels like normal at the moment. I'd love to hear of any ideas that you may have about these annoying bumps that never go away!
Hi Everyone! I currently use NUDE Fizzy Wash every other day and couldn't be happier with the results so far! I also use a Neutrogena wash as an everyday cleanser but am skeptical of its effectiveness. I have combination type skin, sometimes overly oily, other times I have dry spots. I often breakout on my chin and cheeks and am also concerned about clogged pores.. In addition to my semi-regular NUDE wash, I am looking for a nightly wash or cleanser and a mask to use occasionally. Thanks for any advice!!
What's a good way to get rid of flakiness in these areas? I've been lacking on my Clinique 3 Step routine recently, but any time I use liquid foundation those areas are usually flaky and there's quite a bit of dead skin. Should I just exfoliate more? Sheet mask? Any advice? I'm a combo skin, my T-Zone is oily in the forehead area, and sometimes a little flaky as well.
I have a couple of skincare related questions. First, can eye cream be applied over the whole eye area, including the eyelid/crease/brow bone area, or just the under the eye area? Also, I don't have acne prone skin, and I never really get more than two pimples whenever I do happen to have a breakout, but I do have a fair amount of subclinical acne on my forehead, and I was wondering if using a cleanser that is designed for acne prone skin (like the Murad Clarifying Cleanser) could clear up what I do have on my skin and also be good for preventing any future breakouts? Thanks so much for any and all responses! :-D
OMG!! I have had it with my skin!! I have Combination skin, and about two months ago I switch skin care from Rodan & Fields to Ole Henriksen and Origins skin care line. Reason for switching was because it was to harsh on my skin and it was always over compensating and my skin was crazy greasy and my pores just enlarged (so gross). well now All my 30 year old acne is back. I am at a loss, what am I missing?
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
I'm new to these boards, so I'm sorry if this has already been covered! I'm a bit overwhelmed trying to pick a morning/nightly skincare routine. There are so many different products you can use, but what do you think is actually necessary? I've also noticed that a lot of you ladies will only use some products every few nights, why is that? And how do you determine which products are not for daily use? I have normal to dry skin, and I break out on my chin when I don't wash my brushes every week. I'm 27 so I've started to worry more about anti aging products. Right now, I wash my face at night only, I have a serum I use in the morning as well as night (is this necessary?), and I use a day cream or night cream. Am I missing anything?
I've tried all kinds. I don't have dark circles (most of the time) but I do have bags under my eyes. I've found that under eye cream seems to work better than a concealer (probably because I don't have circles as I mentioned before). I am 30 years old and have slight wrinkles so I want something that won't settle into my wrinkles. I'd also like something that will actually last longer than a couple of hours or something I can reapply over makeup. Any advice? TIA
Hi Ladies! So, I am testing Boscia Clear Complexion Moisturizer right now. But, I am looking for recommendations from you all from experience! I have combination skin. Pretty oily around my nose, forehead and chin. Recently, I have been kind of dry on my cheeks. Looking for something to balance it out. I am using Marc Jacobs foundation and don't have a set primer right now. (Trying out some different ones). I also have been using the First Aid Beauty Skin Rescue Oil-Free Mattifying Gel Moisturizer, but was told to just use it on my oily spots, because my cheeks are dry right now and it was looking dry under my foundation. I know this is a lot of information, but I need help choosing a moisture for day/night to keep my skin hydrated so it doesn't get dry and flaky and doesn't cause it to create more oil. And doesn't look oily under makeup! Thank you!
