I've been using BareMinerals BarePro powder foundation for a few weeks now. Unfortunately, it's itchy and makes my skin feel tight. I'm not sure if it's the combination of the products I'm using or the BarePro itself that's irritating my skin but I really love this foundation and want to make it work. Here's my morning make up/skin care routine. - Cleanse with FAB's pure cleanser (morning and night) - Tone with Jurlique's rosewater spray (morning and night) - Moisturize with L'Octaine light moisturizer (morning and night) - Prime with BareMineral's original primer - Buff on BarePro - Buff on BareMineral's original Mineral Veil - Finish with Urban Decay's chill setting spray What do y'all think? Is it the foundation I'm using or the primer?
Does anyone know of any skincare-only subscription boxes? I just cancelled my Birchbox subscription, since the points system was really the only reason I was sticking around, so I'm looking for a replacement. I'm pretty picky with makeup, but still new to the world of skincare, so it'd be nice to find a subscription box with only skincare items (not mask-only boxes, though). I have looked into some of the Korean skincare boxes, Miss Tutii and MishiBox in particular, but I'm a little wary of the quality of some of the cheaper Korean brands that are often in those boxes and I am very uncomfortable at the prospect of getting skin-whitening products. I also have gotten the impression that a lot of Korean skincare products are for oily skin, and since I have very dry skin, I would have to have a box that is customized for dry skin. I would love to hear from subscribers about their experiences with different boxes!
I have dry skin and I was wondering what order y'all do your skincare in at night or in the morning and maybe what products you use to help with the dryness. Also, how long should I wait to put on makeup after my skincare routine?
Hi Everyone, For quite some time now I've been trying to find the right products for me! Background about myself: 20 year old with normal/dry sensitive skin, redness,texture, finally seeing some wrinkles, and suffer from breakouts around my period. I need help finding all new products besides cleanser and toner! I would love to start using serums, eye creams, or anything else. Another question is when should I begin looking into anti-aging products since i'm only 20? Thanks!
I'm looking for a good moisturizer/cleanser/exfoliator for my sensitive, dry, flaky patches skin, that breaks out pretty easily ( it's a lot i know) I had been using clinique for years when it suddenly started to make me itch. Thanks in advance!
I have mildly dry skin, although relatively clear. That being said, I don't use foundation, I use BB Cream instead, but I use powder bronzer and blush. My skin continues to be dry although I moisturize as much as possible. Do you think switching over fully to liquid face makeup will help me appear to look more hydrated, or would it not make much of a difference?
I've lived with severe eczema for my whole life. I can't keep my skin moist and hydrated unless I use Vaseline which causes my skin to look very glossy and greasy. I have used First Aid Beauty hydration cream and other creams/lotion that do not have the glossy look, but my skin still feels dry and tight after applying. Which then causes my skin to wrinkle and peel. All I'm looking for is a way to keep my skin hydrated without using a lotion that looks greasy. If there is also a way to decrease the sights of eczema scars that would be appreciated.
As a beauty addict, I have more than my fair share of makeup products..but I've been slacking on my skincare. a lot. At one point, I was just using wipes and cetaphil lotion ( I know, disgusting.) Anyway I've been getting back into my routine though. This is my current routine: -Shiseido Gentle Cleanser -Algenist Hydrating Toner -Clinique Moisturizing Lotion+ But I have questions! What do you use? Serums? Exfoliators? Luna? Any tips or experience is greatly appreciated and I'd love to hear all about y'all skincare routine! (P.S. I am prone to redness on my cheeks and my skin is generally normal/dry but the tip of my nose is white head galore and I have those whiteheads that stick out almost on the sides of my nose) Please let me know what you use to get rid of these suckers!
Hi!! I desperately need suggestions on products to use for dry skin. Everything i have tried leaves my skin dry/patchy. I cleanse/moisturize every day and when im not wearing make up it doesnt look as dry as opposed to when i apply. I really want to invest in some great products that will help! Looking for a fresh/dewy everyday look. The face products i currently use: -Neutrogena Oil Free Moisture -Mario Bodescu rosewater spray -Smashbox Primer -MAC Face & Body foundation (not really enjoying) -No concealer Everything i try dries out my skin. -Tarte Amazonian clay powder -ELF blush -Champagne pop I would love your feedback! Thanks so much.
Hey everyone! My skin is very dry in the mornings and gets more oily throughout the day. I'm torn between Glamglow's supermud clearing treatment and Dr. Brant's pores no more vacuum cleaner. I'm looking to remove blackheads and reduce pore size. Thaks!
I have dry skin that flakes, and wearing foundation only makes that more obvious. It'll emphasize every dry spot and 'crack' on my cheeks around my nose (imagine really really dry ground and how it cracks when there isn't water, the foundation will do that, but on a very tiny scale) and it's noticeable if someone is standing near me. I've tried everything from exfoliating, moisturizing, to primer, to using/combining different types of foundation, and nothing seems to work. The foundation refuses to blend in with my skin and apply smoothly and evenly to my skin. I like wearing foundation to reduce redness, but I'm so self conscious with it on, I'd rather go bare faced than even use a little to avoid the scaly cheeks that come with foundation. Any suggestions??? (I usually wash my face day and night, exfoliate 2X a week, and always moisturize day night and in between. To apply makeup I exfoliate if I'm really flaky, moisturize, wait, moisturize again, apply primer, wait, apply foundation, apply setting powder)
So, I have a real problem with dry skin right now. It seems like nothing can quench it! I wash my face morning and night with a moisturizing face wash, and moisturize with a fairly thick lotion both at night and before applying my make up. I use Too Faced Hangover Rx primer (which I consider pretty moisturizing) to boot! I'm currently using Make Up Forever's HD foundation with a stippling brush. I even tried adding my moisturizer to my initial layer of foundation this morning, but nothing can get rid of those nasty dry patches! Help! Anyone else have this problem? If so, how did you fix it?? --Hannah
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 know ew, it sounds disgusting, but I tend to have dry skin and sometimes when applying foundation my forehead tends to have dead skin which peels and it's annoying. I wish they had forehead scrubs like they do for the lips. BUT ANYWAYS can anyone recommend a good moisturizer for my dry skin /=
Hey all, I'm pretty new here and I need help with finding a good winter moisturizer. My skin varies from season to season; I find it's a bit more oily in the summer and a lot drier in the winter. My skin is starting to feel very tight and it's starting to become more flaky. The current cleaners I have dry me out; I have purchased Philosophy's Purity and that broke me out. My skin really isn't sensitive but I honestly don't know what would irritate it. I would also like a good moisturizer for the day time because the moisturizers I do have are extremely heavy and are more suitable for night time. Any suggestions? Thank you!
Hey, I'm looking for a suitable bb or cc cream for my ultra pale, very dry skin. The winter only makes my skin even drier of course, and therefore more noticeable. while I'm trying to find a product or line of products that work for my skin, I'd lime something that isn't too matte (I've tried the dr. Jart+ line and it feels too tight and shows all my dry spots), and isn't too dark ( smashbox, tarte, and many others are way too dark or yellow). Any help would be appreciated! Not looking for a foundation, just light coverage. And for reference, I'm the lightest shade in Urban Decays Naked foundation, and have pink undertones. Thanks!
Lately my legs have been white from flaky n dry. i use any drugstore lotion yet nothing helps ...my soaps are dove and body washes n still dry out ...this thing is driving me nuts. do you know some products or tips that can help me?! thanx!
I'm a teenager and have VERY dry skin around my eyes. The rest of my face is combination to dry. It is also really sensitive and easily breaks out. My eyelids and the skin around them is so dry that I can no longer wear eyeshadow without it looking horrendous. I am currently switching between Josie Maran Argan Oil Light and First Aid Beauty Ultra Repair Cream. I need a recommendation on a good moisturizer for my eyes. (If possible, could we keep it on the cheaper side?) Thank you so much!
What type of product is best to use to get rid of pitted acne scars. I no longer have problems with breaking out but my acne scars are still there. Any suggestions as to what type of peels, masks, or any product that may help?/
Hello! I am looking for a good moisturizer for everyday use. I used to use Korres Wild Rose moisturizer, but they changed the formula and I am not sure if I want to stick with it. I recently used the Bobbi Brown Hydrating Gel Cream and loved it, but I'm hesitant on the price, given that I'm buying products for a whole new skin regimen. Any suggestions? Has anyone loved the different Korres moisturizers? I have normal to dry skin Thanks so much!
Its really dry around my brow bone, eyes and eye brows ? I got a free Ren Hydra-Calm Day Cream and it seems hydrating, I just don't want to be reapplying again and again. Any suggestions for good products for sensitive dry skin that won't hurt around the eye area?
Hey ladies! I need help. I have extremely dry, fair skin. I am currently using Lancome's Tie Idol 24 hr foundation and I thought I liked it but I just feel like it dries me out. I have roscea, lots of freckles, some discoloration caused by my birth control and (genetic) dark circle under my eyes. I need help finding a full coverage foundation for extremely dry skin with all my imperfections. I also have naturally curly hair which was turned orange 2 weeks ago by a bad stylist. I went in for highlights and came out crying. I put a dark brown all over it and it was still orange so a week later I went to have it fixed and it is better but not exactly right. Anyway, after having all this done, my curls don't seem as curly and my hair seems limp. Is there anything I can do? What do you recommend for shampoo and conditioner? Please tell me it will come back and that I haven't ruined it forever......Please help!!!!
I have extremely dry skin in the winter, that is also sensitive and prone to breakouts. Korres Yogurt Cream is the only thing I've found that seems to moisturize and regulate my skin in the winter. I use Korres Pomegranate Moisturizer in the summer but it's not nearly intensive enough for the winter. But I see that the Yogurt Cream is now discontinued. Anyone have any other suggestions?
Until recently I'd only been using my body lotion for my face, since I didn't use a foundation or any face makeup. It did what I had wanted it to do, that is until I started wearing a foundation. I've been using MAC's gel moisturizer, and that leaves my face feeling tight and just doesn't take care of the flakiness. I was thinking that Josie Maran's Argan Oil would be something to try, but I was just wondering if anyone had some advice. I'm working on a budget maxing $55.
