With the cold, winter months quickly approaching I am looking to swap out some of my current skincare products for ones that will provide more moisture. I am currently using Clinique Moisture Surge as a nighttime moisturizer, but am looking to swap it out for a thicker, creamier moisturizer. What would you recommend? I would also like some suggestions for hydrating masks, facial oils, and/or facial mists to help keep my skin hydrated. Thank you in advance!
Calling all my dry skin girls - I'm in need of your assistance!!! I'm a total makeup junkie, but nothing is more disheartening than seeing your face makeup cracked, creased, and dry after just an hour! My skin looks flakey in its appearance when I wear foundation, but there are no actual flakes??? I have no idea if that makes sense or if anyone has experienced this, but my skin looks cracked and flakey, but when I touch my skin it feels smooth! I'm looking for some hardcore moisturizers and treatments to help my skin out. I love nothing more than a good glam, but it looks horrible when I'm out in public in daylight. All my foundation settles into my natural under-eye creases, and around my mouth and nostrils. Also, if you have any recommendations for foundations, primers, and powders for my extremely dry skin? Even though my skin is super dry, I've found that I still need powder to set it in place or else it just wears off of my skin SO fast.
I started swimming a lot lately, and I will continue to. I'm concerned about my face. My skin is so affected by the pool water. My normal moisturizer isn't enough. I use mainly Shiseido products, and some Fresh cleanser. I don't want to introduce too many different things to my skin. If I can stick with one of these two brands, that'd be my preference. In any case, can anyone recommend an awesome [heavy duty?] moisturizer for face for swimmers? Thank you!
Hey BTgals, I just got reminded this morning how much my skin loves oils. I had been skipping on them for the past 2 weeks since I'd been suffering from pesky breakouts + been traveling, so didn't really have any with me. Last night, made a dash to the drugstore to get some oil (since there's no Sephora close by), and ended up getting a Loreal facial oil, and slathered that on my face last night! Oh my! My skin looks positively happy and glowing today With the VIB sale round the corner, wanted to hear what your fave face oils were. I haven't tried tons, but mine would be: - Tata Harper Replenishing Nutrient Complex - Caudalie Premier Cru (although I could do with a less heavy rose scent) Do share your faves!!
Hello All! I have some dry patches going on that my Nars Luminous Weightless Foundation is clinging to like no other... I'm looking for a high-end foundation that will be medium-full coverage that does not attract attention to dry areas on my face. Any recommendations?
Hi guys! I figure I would ask this question here. I'm pretty sure I have over-exfoliated my face because instead of it being smooth like it was four days ago its rough and patchy in many areas (gotta lay off the Exfolikate now) - any questions on how I can repair this quickly? I'm currently just using Kiehls Midnight Recovery but wondering if any other BT-ers have any other tips?? thank you in advance!!!
So unfortunately as the cold weather in Canada rolls around, so does my dry skin. I'm so desperate to find something to help, but everything I try seems to fail. My skin looks flaky, and gross, specially when I put on foundation (Which with my freckly complexion, I need) I've tried Argan Oil, Maracuja oil, Clinique, Aveeno, Origins, and many more. Even going in to the Sephora store, the girls mentioned a bunch of different things, and I told them I had tried them all, and they were still shocked that I had dry skin after all that. So basically, I'm looking for something to help me. I live in Alberta, and the weather can drop to -30C. My skin gets dry even at -1C! So if anyone has anything that has worked with their skin, PLEASE let me know, I've been searching for too long.
Okay so, my foundation is ALWAYS cakey..everyday...Ive tried many different foundations (Dolce and gabbana, rimmel, revlon, L'Oreal) and it never goes right I never achieve a great finish that looks smooth and silky. Ive watched countless videos on methods of application (ive tried brush,sponge and even went through the deperate times of finger application methods) and yet I still cant achieve natural looking pretty skin. I also have dry flakes and redness around the nose, and inbetween eyebrows. I also have terrible eyebags that just wont go away! Ive tried everything .... Exfoliating, facial cleanser, moisturizer everyday day.........help!!
im getting married and my fiancé has rough dry skin. Our photographer can only photoshop his blemishes so much. Any recommendations for natural looking foundation that'll also cover redness? Thank you!
I am 35, and in the past few months my eye lids have been getting very dry & irritated. I've tried several all over eye creams workers have suggested, and they just seem to irritate them even more. Can anyone give me any advice on this? I've never experienced dry eyes like this.
I have VERY sensitive eyes that always burn with 99% of the cleansers and makeup remover wipes out there. So far out of the ones I have tried, only the Tarte maracuja wipes are the only ones that work for me that don't burn my eyes or dry out my skin. All natural soap works as well, but it dries out my skin. I've tried things for sensitive eyes and skin, nothing works. I know that just makeup remover wipes isn't good enough, because it doesn't get rid of everything, so I would like to find a cleanser that won't sting or dry out my skin, but will clean the rest of what's left on my face. Any suggestions? For reference it doesn't get into my eye, it's the rubbing and formula around the eye, that irritates, usually. Things I have tried that I can remember (all did not work for me): (May not be the exact name of the product) first aid beauty wipes korres milk wipes yes to cucumber wipes vichy cream makeup remover Lancome cream makeup remover Lancome eye makep remover Sephora collection waterproof eye makeup remover Bioderma wipes Ponds wipes (blue packaging) First aid beauty cleanser
Hey guys, my question is regarding my dry t zone, my face is normally never dry except for when I put makeup on! I exfoliate every morning before I put my cream on which is the Embryolisse Lait-Creme Concentrate which I love! And then I follow up with either my NARS Pure Radiant Tinted Moisturizer or the Laura Mercier Tinted Moisturizer because I don't like heavy products on my face. I used to use the Laura Mercier setting powder but I thought that was making my face dry out throughout the day, but since ive stopped using it I am still have the same issue. By the middle of the day my makeup looks dried out especially on my t zone area, and splotchy in areas on my cheeks. I even use the Urban Decay All Nighter Long-Lasting Makeup Setting Spray and this still happens!!
I've never had any sign of dry anything since I am typically oily skinned. But after using Smashbox primer, my nose is all flaky. Sephora doesn't have another green primer to use. So I just keep moisturizing at night to counter balance. I also wear a different primer under the Smashbox one just to protect my nose!
I do not have dry skin necessarily, I have more of combination skin, but I get severe dry patches, and flaking around my nose and on my forehead. I exfoliate a couple of times a week, and moisturize everyday, but nothing seems to work. Any suggestions to what I could use to stop the dry spots?
For a few months now I've had really dry, flaky eyebrows and I have no clue what to do to fix it. I've tried dandruff shampoo on them, Murad exfoliating cleanser, nothing fixes it. Even if it goes away that day, the next day, it's back. They aren't itchy, just dry and flaky. Any advice on how to get it to go away is welcome! :-) Thanks!!

Hi Everyone! I need help with a skincare regimen that is going to be something quick for me to do, that is going to work well and takes care of my issues without breaking the bank. Is there such a thing? For the most part, I have dry skin but my nose, cheeks on either side of my nose and chin have a tendency to be reddish. I am a full time working mom of a 1st grade boy and don't have a lot of time to myself and I am in my 40s. Any help or advise is appreciated! Thanks! AliBarr
Hi Everyone! So, I have a wedding to attend this weekend. I recently went tanning a few times to get some color before. (I know it's not good) and it has caused my oil/combo skin to be a bit more dry in some places. Well here is why I need your help! I have been looking so dry on my cheeks and chin under my makeup. While my T-Zone is still on the oily side! What will help me ASAP. I started using, The Regimen Kit Combination/Oily, by Mario Badescu last night. I used a night cream moisturizer last night by this brand also called Seaweed Night Cream to help get moisture into my skin, it felt somewhat better. BUT when I put on my marc jacobs foundation and make up for ever smoothing primer this morning I felt like you could still see the dryness on my cheek and unevenness. & I am still unsure of a primer. I haven't found my HG! I have acne marks in my skin and indents on my cheeks/forehead that causes it not too look very smooth. I hope I can find some products that I will fall in love with! I need to look amazing for the wedding! Thank you in advance!
I am looking to try a new tinted moisturizer, specifically I'd love to try the Laura Mercier tinted moisturizer. I currently wear the Clinique Moisture Surge tinted moisturizer in shade 01 (Alabaster it's called I think). I tried using the online ColorIQ to see what other products would be a match to this shade but the clinique tinted moisturizer wasn't one that I could select. Does anyone know what the comparable shade would be in the Laura Mercier tinted moisturizer? Other suggestions for tinted moisturizer would be great too. I have very dry skin, so I prefer something very moisturizing and / or illuminating. Thanks.
