Q. Moisturizing bb/cc cream for very pale, dry skin
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!

Q. SUPER INTENSE EYE CREAM
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!

Q. Great moisturizers similar to Bobbi Brown?
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!

Q. HELP, HELP, HELP!
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!!!!

Q. Replacement for Korres Yogurt Cream
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?

Q. Moisturizer for Combination/Oily and Flaky Skin?
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.

Hi - I am new to the wood stove environment and it is so drying to my hair, skin and nails.  I have upped my water intake and I have been slathering on moisture, but still left with some side effects.   My hair is fine and wavy, prone to dryness - any suggestions on the best product to use?  I have not used heat on my hair in ages for fear of over drying - but now it just looks terrible!   My skin is fair, sensitive and rather dull looking - I would love some ideas on BB Creams or Cream Foundations?  I will always use Bare Minerals as a 'powder' finish.  Any guidance / help is REALLY appreciates

Q. best cleanser for dry, dehydrated skin prone to clogged pores and some breakouts?
I've always used Neutrogena Oil-Free Acne Wash which has kept my skin clear and mostly free of blackheads. However, it's becoming way too dehydrating for my dry, dehydrated skin. I'm looking for a cleanser that is not only hydrating but also will keep away clogged pores and breakouts. I've tried some cleansing milks and while they've added hydrating to my skin, I still have a lot of blackheads. I've even tried them with the Clarisonic and I see no difference. I have small blackheads/clogged pores all over my forehead and a bit on my nose and cheeks, despite having no oiliness whatsoever to my skin. Thanks!

Q. What is the best non-suncreen moisturizing face lotion?
I have very sensitive skin that's also very dry. Almost all the face lotions out there contain suncreen, but I can't use those because I'm allergic to the main active ingredients in sunscreen. All of the lotions that I have found without suncreen aren't moisturizing enough and my skin gets tight or flaky sometimes minutes after applying. I am currently using Clinique Dramatically Different Moisturizing Lotion but recently have been noticing that it's not hydrating enough anymore - likely due to the colder weather we're getting in Seattle.    Thanks!
