Looking for a new skincare routine?
Everyday I feel more and more uncomfortable in my skin. I have fair, sensitive, acne prone dry/combo skin, with acne scars on the sides of my cheeks. Seeing girls with flawless skin and makeup applications makes me feel more self-conscious about my skin and makeup that never seems to look right on me. Too drying and matte, too illuminating and oily, too powdery etc. No matter what foundations or techniques or primers I've used, nothing seems to change.   I'd like to toss out everything that I've got and start fresh, including my skin care products and choice of foundation, starting with skin care first.  Currently I'm using Garnier face wash for sensitive skin, L'oreal alcohol-free toner, and moisturizer also from Garnier with SPF 30. Once in a while I exfoliate, but I've flipped flopped between products since my skin is sensitive to abrasive beads that are usually in those products.   Any suggestions would be amazing! Thank you!

Which Lush cleanser should I use?
Hi there. So I just recently made my first Lush purchase. I bought the Mask of Magnaminty and the Full of Grace serum. I was wondering which cleanser would be best to use for my skin. I have dry skin with redness and just finished treating my rosacea. Thanks so much for any and all responses. :-)

Foundation Not Staying
For about the past 2 months my foundation looks gross aroundmy nose. The top of my nose is a little oily, while the sides of nose are dry. I use either the Nivea mens post shave balm that everyone talks about or the maybelline baby skin primer. I switch out between my Loreal infallible pro matte, Maybelline fit me matte and poreless or the revlon colorstay foundations. I have stopped wearing makeup because I don't know what to do. Im looking for something on the affordable side if possible, no more than $30. Thanks!!

SMS= Save My Skin!!
I am 22 years old and have always had dry, acne prone skin. I have been struggling because my skin has flakes (dry skinned girls you know what I mean) and it clings to any kind of makeup so I look extra flaky and cakey. The problem is my body tends to over compensate by kicking up oil production so by the end of the day I'm more combination. I'm assuming it's all the oil and the flakes combined that clog my pores and cause my acne issues (correct me if I'm wrong please). I just want to know if there are any types of products, specific products or routine that I can use to break the vicious cycle. Any help would be appreciated!!!

Ultimate hydrating night time face moisturizer?
I used to use a combination of Philosophy Omega 3,6,9 Replenishing Oil and Decleor Ultra Cocooning cream. The new Philosophy Replenishing glee is inferior and the Omega oil by FRESH is no where near as hydrating. Unfortunately Decleor updated it's ultra cocooning cream and it's not the same. I'm searching for equivalent replacements without glycolic acid, retinol etc as I use these separate. Looking for a super duper hydrating night cream please help!

I would say i have very normal skin. I usually only break out on my forehead during my period and it is very mild. I am looking for a full coverage foundation because I have very red cheeks that i am not a fan of. A lot of foundations i try samples of either turn flakey, crease under my eyes, or get very oily on my forehead. which foundation would work well with my skin and which should i at least try.   I have tried Makeup Forever HD stick, Clinique chubby, and a sample packet of Marc Jacobs Re(marc)able full coverage.

Flakey dry skin
Hello all!   I've been dealing with a dry flakey face since my late teens (about 5 years). It's centered on my T-zone and upper cheeks. I've tried all kinds of different moisturizers and natural oils, but nothing ever seems to be absorbed. It just seems to sit on my skin. I’ve made diet changes and have been making sure to stay hydrated, but my skin still stays persistently dry. I’m at my wits end, and nothing seems to be working. My skin is fairly sensitive- any suggestions for anything that might help me re-balance my skin’s natural oils? Thanks!

Hi everyone. I use to have extremely oily skin and over the past 6 months my skin has been super super dry.

HELP! FLAKY HOT MESS!
Lately I've been having terrible, terrible skin. I used to have oily skin, but now it suddenly turned dry, especially on my cheeks and forehead and t-zone, or basically EVERYWHERE. Before, when I check in the afternoon, my face would be shiny but that completely changed. I use bb cushion, which is supposed to be oily, but I don't find it helpful at all. In fact, it just emphasizes on the flakes. In addition, the flaky and dry parts are so rough and sometimes my cheeks get red from irritation. I'm not sure if it's the season change; it's been like this since March. I'm so frustrated   Right now, I've reduced my skincare routine just to an essence and a night cream (the Korres Wild Rose sleeping facial) or a gel based lotion (if anyone is familiar with the Korean brand, Nature Republic's Aqua line) for the morning.    I honestly don't know what's the cause for this. I've also been getting the same amount of sleep as I always have. Should I go see a dermatologist? Or are there products people recommend I can use that's not very irritating? Thank you so much in advance!

How did I live without this?! Caudalie - Vinosource Moisturizing Sorbet
Caudalie Vinosource Moisturizing Sorbet. This is an amazing product. I'm very red and I've started to lean towards dry as I have gotten older.    Using this product under Diorskin Nude BB Cream has made me look 5-10 years younger! The BB cream seems to cover so much more evenly now, and I seem to have a little bit of a "glow" because I'm using the sorbet.   I think the Caudalie has made the BB cream much more effective and has contributed highly to that beautiful skin factor we all want. I've gotten great results, even without color correction the past few days. This is a keeper I'm not sure will go away.

Day Moisturizer with SPF?
I'm in need of a new moisturizer for the day, specifically want one with some SPF now that it's getting warmer and I'll likely be outside a bit more. My skin is mainly dry, sometimes dehydrated around my t-zone so that can get oily some days. I also have pretty sensitive skin.   I tried out one from CerVe since I love a lot of their other products, but it was basically just straight sunscreen and it wasn't hydrating at all. Not helpful when I was looking for a moisturizer. It's fine if I'm using it as sunscreen and not wearing makeup, but it did not perform well under my makeup.    I have a sample of the Benefit Triple Performing Facial Emulsion, which I love the consistency of, but I hate the bottle it's in and also hoping it might be possible to find something with a bit more SPF than it has (15).   I have been recommended the Pete Thomas Roth Max Sheer All Day Moisture Defense Lotion so was curious if anyone has used it, and maybe the benefit one as well, that could compare the two? Or any other possible recommendations?

Moisturizer - Dry/Dehydrated from TRETINOIN
I've started back on my Tretinoin prescription from my doctor. I see great results so I'm willing to try & work through the madness and like every other situation in life....you're never truly prepared.    Is my skin flakign off? No. Is it super tight? No. It's slightly firm after I wash my face with KS Goat Milk Cleanser but I definitely cannot go long without a moisturizer. I've been using JM Argan Oil and the JM Face butter soon after but I don't think it's doing enough.    You can REALLY really tell how dry my face is once I put UD Naked foundation on. It literally sits on top of my face & never blends very well.   I do have some larger (not huge) clogged pores within my T-zone area so I would like to stay away from anything that is TOO rich and/or greasy feeling so that it doesn't mess up balance. I'm definitely hoping for a deep penetration moisturizer!   Does anyone have any suggestions? PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE!   Thank you
