I am about to finish up my boscia tsubaki overnight sleeping mask. I love using it when my skin is particularly dry and my regular moisturizer just won't cut it. I am happy with the product, but want to try something new. Any suggestions for overnight moisturizing masks?
Hey all! So I just used a sample of the Fresh Rose Mask. My face feels super nice now and hydrated. The price is kind of steep, to me, so can any one help justify purchasing the full size or dissuade me from the full size? I want it to help my skin out in the long run, not just make it feel nice for a little bit after I take it off. Can anyone help me with the long term effects of this mask? Thanks!
I swear my skin is just getting dryer and dryer, and makeup looks pretty awful, but I have somewhat reddish cheeks (mild rosacea) and some blemishes that I prefer covering. I just don't know what to do anymore. I could moisturize and moisturize all day long and as soon as I apply anything, it's instant scaliness. Ugh. I use very hydrating makeup - either Dior Hydralife BB Cream or L'Oreal True Match Lumi, and use a beauty blender to apply. I feel like my skin seems smooth/hydrated before I do anything but lately, it's just awful and I look dry/powdery everywhere (and I don't use powder). Any tips to alleviate this? Because from a skin care perspective I'm doing everything I can and it's still bad.
I have extreamly dry skin. I was using a genle cleanser, mositurizing toner, face oil, serium and moisturizer and at night i would use a mosituising mask - it was still not enough. I have just switched to the AMOREPACIFIC line and its better, but i feel like i am missing a face oil, what would be a good oil to use to pair up with this line that wont break the bank? would the Ole of Hendrikson work with the AP Line?
First I have to say that I am really impressed by this new eye cream from Fresh. I've only been using it a couple of days, and I can already tell that this is my holy grail eye cream. I struggle with dryness under my eyes, and as a consequence my concealer tends to look dry and cakey. This eye cream has completely changed my life! I started using it morning (before I apply my makeup) and night before bed. My under eye area is already looking more hydrated and vibrant, less dull! My concealer no longer appears dry, and it lasts all day with no creasing. It also comes in the most amazing glass packaging, that looks super fancy! I will continue to use this, but I was so impressed I really wanted to come on here and tell you guys all about it! I was sent this eye cream as a gift from Sephora, but these are my own opinions and I am not being paid to post this review! The Fresh Lotus Youth Preserve Eye Cream will be in stores in March!
Hi everyone, I am trying to work on my skin care as I've been noticing this winter is especially harsh on my skin. I can't seem to find a foundation that doesn't look mask-y, so I'm going back to lighter formulations (what I liked before my foray into foundation land). I got a sample of Peau Vierge and so far LOVE it. Help a) dissuade me or b) enable me by sharing your experiences with this product, please!!!
So where I live, the snow has been insane, and the weather is so cold that I start to tear up, and then my tears start to freeze. I digress. I am experiencing my driest and cracked hands ever. For those who have similar issues, or are experiencing the frigid cold, what are your go-to products, and how often do you apply them? At my disposal, I've currently got: Embryolisse Lait-Creme Concentre Laura Mercier Hand Lotions, in Fresh Fig and Creme de Pistache L'Occitane Shea Butter Hand Cream I apply these whenever my hands feel dry, but I am literally applying another round of lotion every 5-10 minutes, and my hands have remained unmoisturized and chapped. Help! How do you guys tackle chapped hands in the winter?
I really didn't want to hijack jemly's thread to ask this question so here goes. I have incredibly dry skin and always wondered if I should even bother with a setting powder. I recently got interested in the Nars Light Reflecting Powder but will it emphasize how dry my skin is? I was thinking about it because my all time favorite foundation, Revlon ColorStay, never actually sets on my face. But I LOVE it and how it covers everything unlike the KVD that I am using now. If I could get the Revlon to actually set I would go back to it in a minute (now if they just hurried up and released the packaging with a pump I'd be all set!).
My skin has always leaned towards being oily, but suddenly my skin has become incredibly dry. Flakes are peeling off of it, and there are noticeable dry spots on my face. I've been exfoliating more than usual and slapping on moisturizer daily yet none of it is working. Exfoliating isn't removing the flakes and dry spots, and my moisturizers are just sitting on top of my skin. Any suggestions for products I can use to get my skin back to normal.
I'm trying to treat my redness but I hear that's difficult. How long does it generally take before I fairly state whether it's working or not? I know I used one of Sephora's masks and my redness was gone when I took it off but returned the next day. I really want to be patient but I want to reduce my redness so badly that I don't want to waste time on products that aren't working.
Okay, so I have been using (fair) Bare Minerals matte (sometimes original) powder foundation for probably five years! My routine conists of the prime time orginal primer, and the i apply my bare minerals foundation. I add bronzer and blush and spray with urban decay setting spray. I'm thinking they have changed their formula, but I always have trouble with their product in the winter. I struggle with flaky dry skin behind my eyebrows and just in between on my forehead. I moisturize wih hope in a jar so I'm not sure what the problem is. After a couple hours my foundation looks patchy/blothcy. I have to add lotion and start all over basically! If anyone has any tips on if i should change foundations or ways to moisturize better that would be helpful! I'll take all the recommendations I can get!!
Has anyone tried Donna Bella 24K Caviar Deep Moisturizer? I've tried the deep moisturizer from this brand and it was really good but it finished. Right now it's a little too pricey for me so I'm looking for alternatives. I found this one on Groupon for $30 and was thinking to buy it but would like to hear more feedback.
I have huge pores around my nose and on my chin. I have been using Benefits Porefessional for about 3 months and it really does nothing for me...I just continued using it because I like how soft it makes my skin. I also just tried the Maybelline baby face pore eraser today and I was SO happy with the results, but by the time I finished my makeup and looked in a mirror with better lighting....there were my big ol' pores. I have VERY dry skin and need a moisturizing primer as well...or else my foundation flakes off. I have a clairisonic that I use...hasn't really made any difference in my skin at all. And I've been using it for 2 months. My skin hates me. I am looking for a great primer to moisturize my skin but also help reduce the size of my pores or at least make them look invisible since I can't seem to do anything to actually minimize them. Going to Sephora tomorrow so any input would be greatly appreciated....also if you happen to have any suggestions on creams/serums that would actually make my pores smaller, that would be great too!!!!
Hello all! I'm looking for a moisturizer to use on my sensitive skin, and I mean REALLY sensitive. I can't use anything with scent anymore, no coloring, no shea butter, VERY minimal to no essential oils, and no alcohol. I have used the ultra repair cream in the past as it was often recommended to me but it has eucalyptus in it which also irritates my skin Any suggestions?
A few weeks ago, I started using a cheap Forever 21 branded grapefruit makeup removing towelette. When I started, I lived in a hot suburban area. Then I moved to an urban cooler climate. I've noticed that my skin has been suuuuper dry, especially in the morning. Now, normally my skin is OIL CITY but I've got little flakies in the morning and oil throughout the day. I've also been breaking out quite a bit, on my face, sides of my face, and neck... which is where I use the towelettes. I'm rapidly aging toward my 30s, so, there's that. I just purchased some tea tree oil free moisturizer, a tea tree exfoliating scrub, and some cleansing water. I currently use my clarisonic, daily, in the morning with Black African Soap. My makeup is minimal but I do use Benefit Big Easy as a primer, Chanel foundation, Benefit Erase Paste, and MAC blush. At night before bed I use the towelettes, and spray my race with some rose water. I try to use an exfoliating mask (Karuna or Dead Sea mud) once a week or every two. So... are my towelettes to blame? Weigh in!

Thank you.
I am 43 years old and my skin has a dry appearance. Also, I have an oily t-zone. What products can I use to get rid of the dry look and replace it a soft polished, glowing skin? While not worsening my t-zone. Thank you!!!
I have purchased Fresh's Seaberry Oil and Origins Make A Difference Moisturizer about a month ago. My face still feels like it is dry-ish. I am looking for a face oil, moisturizer and from my last post moisturizing cleanser which , thanks to some ladies, has given me an idea of what to check. I want the product to moisturize my skin during this winter, minimize pores, even out skintone and just make my skin look good. I am 23 years old and I don't have much acne other than some here and there occasionally.
I am currently looking for a new skincare routine for my dry skin and have no idea where to start. I currently use the hydrating toner, morning and night cream from the Body Shop but I feel like my makeup is not going on well at all and I can definitely feel the dryness creeping its way through! I do need an under eye cream and any other skincare recommendations you may have to create a hydrated flawless complection! Thank you!
Alright so since it is winter, my skin is more dry. I used Peter Thomas Roth Rose cleanser but I forgot my nearly empty bottle at a hotel. I also recently purchased the Fresh Seaberry Oil, Origins Make A Difference Moisturizer. But I still feel like my face is dry. I need a moisturizing cleanser. I am not usually dry but only in winter. Any recommendations?
hello lovely ladies! I'm in desperate need of assistance with my winter skin! I have year round dry skin and usually use Clinique dramatically different moisturizing lotion. But the last two winters, I've still developed dry flaky skin. I've tried Josie Maran argan oil and Body Shop vitamin E night mask for dryness. Both got rid of flakes but I had breakout in small pimples. I've also used Boscia exfoliating powder which I like as gentle exfoliate but can only seem to use it 1-2 times a week. I had been using a Lush cleanser Let the good times roll which I loved until the weather changed. I'm wondering if a gentler daily cleanser may be the solution? There are so many options between cleansing oils, milks and lotions that I'm feeling overwhelmed! I've been looking at FAB and origins but any guidance would be so appreciated.
Seeking something quite thick, rich and emollient that will make me very dewy and prep the skin. I find most creams just don't get the job done or are far too thin in texture. Also would like something natural and without nasty chemicals I can't pronounce. Unfortunately it's very hard to get my hands on the Magic Cream here in Canada and would rather purchase something sold at Sephora.
I'm really interested in starting to use a daily skin care regimen. I'm starting to worry about my skin and I want to kick aging in the butt as early as possible. I don't really have sensitive skin, but I do have dry skin. I find my skin is very dry and flakey and because of so I have blemishes most of the time. I wouldn't consider it acne, but there aren't many times when I don't have at least one blemish. My price range is in the lower range as I'm a student. Any advice on what products I should start using that will work for my type of skin is appreciated!
My dermatologist said that I had eczema skin which I never thought I had. I was wondering if anyone out there with eczema knows of any primers that will not irritate it/ ingredients I should avoid. Thank you for your help!
I recently started used the KVD Shade+Light with my KVD lock it Pressed Powder foundation. Ive stopped for a few days cause of this nasty cold i have (Dont really have energy or anything to put makeup on when im this sick). Since stopping ive noticed that my cheeks have become very dry/flaky. Its noticeable. Im not sure if its also this winter weather up here in canada or the makeup since this hasnt happened before with our cold winters. its a first. Has anyone else have this happen? Thoughts on it? Suggestions?
I'm currently in an exercise regime that has me doing 5 minutes of plank every day. I am developing dry skin on and near my elbows from this. What convenient product should I use to make this dryness go away?
