Need skincare products/routine for dry sensitive skin
I am looking for some skin care products to help with my dry, sensitive skin (I have eczema). I am also prone to blocked pores if the formula is to thick and doesn't absorb well. I have my daytime moisturizer with SPF squared away, so this would be more for nighttime/weekend use.   I tried the High Potency Night-A-Mins™ Mineral-Enriched Renewal and it didn't work for me. My skin never got moisturized, but would end up greasy and has started breaking out.   Any advice is greatly appreciated!

Skin care line for dry skin. (Cleanser, eye cream, moisturizer, toner)
I am looking for a skin care line that is easy and resolves issues with my very, very dry skin.  I am 66 years old and want something that is easy and does not take long to apply and use successfully.  Could you please give me some ideas?  While cost is not extremely important, I would like a product that is reasonable, not extravagant in the snout of money it takes to maintain the routine.  Please advise.

Is it bad to switch up skincare products often?
I often read that you have to use a product for X amount of days/weeks before you will start to notice a difference. Makes sense to me but I have tons of different brands mostly deluxe samples received as GWP, skin care sets or promo codes.   My routine is wash with Clarisonic, then apply toner, serum, eye cream, moisturizer and argan or maracuja oil (at night). My skin is normal for the most part with some dryness occasionally. When I shop for products I go for ones for dry skin and anti aging.   So is it bad that I use different brands every couple of days? What I mean by bad is.....is it a waste of product/time since Im not using it continuously like the instructions usually say to see results?   Hope this makes sense

Moisturizer Recommendations?
Hi. I have normal-to-dry skin; in the winter I can get dry patches, but in the summer it's usually pretty normal. But I just moved into a new office space that's heavily air conditioned and not very humid, and now my skin is often feeling tight and dry at work.   My current routine goes something like this: In the morning I put almond oil on my face, then work out. After my workout I use Neutrogena Fresh Foaming Cleanser, and then used a BB cream on my face (Physician's Formula Super BB or Too Faced's Tinted Beauty Balm).   In the evening I use the same cleanser, Josie Maran's Pure Argan Milk, Olay's Regenerist Night Resurfacing Elixir (but only some nights), and almond oil.   I've used face oils for about a year and liked them, but now I'm getting sick of them, and want something a little creamier but still lightweight. I received a sample of Shu Uemura's Depsea Hydrability Moisturizing Emulsion, and I loved its light, lotions texture but the scent irritated my skin a little bit.   I'm hoping to find something pretty sheer and easy to blend, so I could just keep it at work and apply it at my desk. Any suggestions? Thanks in advance!

Clay mask for dry skin types?
  I have dry combination skin type that is very very acne prone.  I get redness every now and then, but with the right products, I usually don't.. but breakouts are something I tend to not be able to control     I use clarisonic, philosophy and sulwhasoo peels for exfoliating about 2 times a week, but I feel like its not enough to deep clean for pores especially in the summer.    I have in the past used Fresh umbrian clay and PTR sulfur mask from what I can remember on top of my head.  I loved the umbrian clay mask, but found it to be very dehydrating.. PTR sulfur mask on the other hand barely did anything..  oh and Glam glow was way too irritating for my skin..    can anyone please recommend a good clay mask that I can use for the purpose of drawing out impurities and keeping my skin a bit more clear?    thank you in advance!

Q. Best body lotion for very dry skin?
Hi can anyone tell me what is the absolute best body lotion for very dry skin? Something that really works and holds moisture for quite awhile without having a bad smell or feeling sticky. I have tried so many lotions, I recently tried Aveeno's dry skin body lotion and its good but it smells like rubber to me and I do not like that plus it can be a little sticky. I have heard Cetaphil and Eucerin make some good ones as well but I wanted some advice on the feel and smell of some good options. I want to try to get one that isnt super expensive since I go through lotion like crazy as I reapply constantly through the day so I prefer a brand from the drugstore or in a big bottle.

HYDRATION!!!.....while using Retin A
Im currently on my 3rd week using Retin A and my skin has become dry and flakey. Apparently this is normal until my skin adjust to the retin. Im seeking an affordable cleanser (preferably cream based), i also need a good SPF moisturizer. I have to stay away from anything citrus in order not to irritate my skin (while on retin citrus and alcohols can irritate and cause bad redness). Also, i prefer something with minimal alcohol in the products. I cant afford to lose anymore hydration lol. I cant wait until my "Ugly" phase is over. Only 3 weeks in and my skin is almost acne clear. Im hoping the dreadful 4-6 weeks horror stories of purging does NOT come my way, Id really appreciate any suggestions from my fellow beauties.

Foundation for Dry Skin that doesn't settle in fine lines.
I have very dry skin and every cream or liquid foundation I use seems to settle into my fine lines around my mouth and nose. The most recent foundations I used were Tarte Maracuja Mircale foundation and Nars Radiant Cream foundation. I moisturize in the morning and at night and my foundation will still settling into my fine lines and make me look older. I would love recommendations of foundations for dry skin. Also I need a fuller coverage foundation because I have rosacea that needs coverage. Thanks!

Dry Scalp Question
Hiya! I'm currently taking accutane, which dries out the skin as part of how it works. I've found that recently my scalp has become very dry and irritated, and stings. Does anyone have any suggestions for a hydrating scalp treatment? I already use anti-dandruff shampoo, and wanted something to use without washing my hair (it hurts too much!). Most of what I've seen focuses on the ends of hair. Thank you so much!

Daily moisturizer with SPF but no suncreen smell?
Hi everyone! I'm looking for a daily moisturizer with SPF in it (at least 15... 30 or higher is preferable) that DOES NOT smell like sunscreen. Bonus points if it has a nice fragrance! Any suggestions???   One note, my skin is on the dry side, so it needs to be a good moisturizer.   So far I've tried out samples of Josie Maran's moisturizer with SPF like 47 or something... that smelled good, it just feels greasy at first and takes FOREVER to absorb so I keep having to find other things to do with my time before I can put my makeup on. Like we're talking 20+ minutes.   I also tried Benefit's emulsion moisturizer... that smells HEAVENLY and absorbs quicker and feels really good on the skin, but the SPF is only 15. Would love something like that with a higher SPF (just no sunscreen smell).   Has anyone tried any of the Boscia moisturizers with SPF?

Blemish & breakout problems for REALLY dry and sensitive skin
So i've had issues with breakouts and blemishes just the last 3-4 years. I've tried everything - even not putting anything on my face to dry it out (which actually kind of worked) but as I've gotten older I've realized not taking care of my skin is no longer an option. HOWEVER, I have extremely dry and sensitive skin so a lot of products end up making my skin worse. Does anyone have any suggestions for products that specifically target pimples/blemishes.    Right now I'm using ole henriksen collagen serum and moisturizer as well as l'occitane brightening serum and face wash. Make-up I only use amorepacific CC compact foundation.   Thanks in advance!

Dry to normal skin - what wash and moisturizer?
I've recently been using Kate Somerville daily gentle wash morning and evening, and a sephora moisturizer with SPF 15 in it day and night. I have recently ran out if both and have just been using my body wash and hand soap to wash, and Vaseline cocoa butter body lotion on my face since I use it on my body - this is probably horrible! But is it?? I mean it helps my dry skin. My dryness issues include flaking skin on two sides of my face, on either side of my chin under my mouth and that includes discoloration. What are some recommended face washes and moisturizers for dry skin with large pores? I've also switched to using tea tree oil at night tI manage my acne, and even my skin tone and it works SO WELL!! Idk if that's relevant, but I thought I would add it. And help/recommendations will be so helpful!!
