Clinique Moisture Surge Overnight Mask: questions!
I want to get a hydrating mask and I have my eyes on the Clunique moisture surge hydrating mask. It has good reviews, comes in a tube and fairly wallet friendy (plus, I want the little clinique CC cream that will come with the current gwp). Have anyone of you guys tried it? What did you think of it? And another question is, how often do you use it? In some reviews, it's beening used as a night cream, did that work for you or do you put this on after your normal routine?      Thanks!

skin flaking grey
So I wear aloe vera gel on my face after I cleanse and tone.The last two times I applied my bb cream on top of it, it started to flake. There were grey eraser shaving like flakes on my face. I wasn't sure if it was because my bb cream was quite old, so I tried a new one, but same thing.   It's weird because it goes on smooth and then as I rub it in my face and blend it ends up flaking grey.   Does that mean the face moisturizer isn't good or should I exfoliate more?

Best Product for Dry/Sensitive Skin
I am looking for a new moisturizer, toner, eye cream, and cleanser for my dry, sensitive skin. Prior to having my first child I used the Clinique 3 step line along with their eye cream. After having my child I cannot use these products anymore. They irritate my skin. This winter I dealt with mild eczema and am just now getting over it thanks to First Aid Beauty. I like these products, but am wondering if there is a better cleanser. I still continue to have mild breakouts from time to time, which I never experienced prior to having a baby. The toner pads from First Aid Beauty also make my face feel kind of tacky after use. I am in my early 30's with fair skin that freckles in the summer time. Eventually I think I'd like to add some anti-aging products to the mix. A friend of mine suggested I get a Clarisonic Mia 2 and use Boscia cleanser. The Clarisonic kind of scares me and I haven't heard much about Boscia products. Any suggestions?

Skincare with Retinol and AHAs
Okay, so I've been off retinol and AHAs since November, because as winter started my skin became uncontrollably dry and peeled like crazy two days after I used retinol - every time.   So I want to start back up and do it right.  Was doing to do retinol (.5) twice a week and AHAs once to start, never on back to back days.    I would like to supplement my moisturizing with oil - I have maracuja and argan but I've been hearing horror stories about argan oil on the face.    Any thoughts/input you have appreciated!  If you have a link to an article that would be helpful feel free to PM me.  Thanks!

What's your favorite sheet mask?
Mods, please tell Sephora to continue carry When masks. I brought Snow Angel on a whim and love them, but I didn't even get a chance to finish/repurchase before it's discontinued! And there's only 2 types of When masks now, is the line being discontinued?   I can't find When Angel anywhere for purchase. I had a dream last night that Sephora carried it again and I was so happy the first thing I did after waking up was to check here, but nope *sad puppy eyes*. I guess I'll have to come to term with the fact that I'll have to settle for other sheet masks. So, anyone tried a sheet mask they liked?

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!

Can anyone suggest a good product for me?
Hey everyone, So my skin is sort of weird. It used to be close to perfect, but three years ago I was sick and was put on steroids for six months which completely destroyed my perfect skin. I broke out all over my face and scarred really badly, which had never happened before. Now, the acne and scarring is significantly less but my skin is dry and flaky. I'm trying to find a product (mask, moisturizer, cleanser, exfoliator, anything really it doesn't matter) that can help with my skin. I used to use a daily exfoliator, but it didn't seem to help with the built up flaky skin on my face. All it did was make my cheeks bright red and hot. My concern with most products for dry skin is that they don't take being prone to breakouts into much account, so when I use them, I tend to break out on my forehead. My nose is also loaded with blackheads, but I've always had those, and I've sort of accepted that I can't change that. I'm just tired of this weird skin of mine. Most days it feels like I have caked on dead skin that I can't seem to get rid of. And even when I do a peel off mask, it sill leaves most of the skin. So I know this is asking for a lot because I'm looking for a miracle product, but can anyone suggest anything? My skin is a wreck.  Thank you so much!

Skin care recs. for dry to combo skin - mid 30's?
Hello! This is my first real post here - I just became Rouge this am (though it's not updated yet) and am excited to read through all these threads and find tons of fun new products to try! I'm wondering if anyone has any good recommendations for skincare products. I'm in my mid 30's, very fair skinned with lots of freckles and with mostly dry skin, though a few oily areas. Currently, I use either Lancome Foaming Facial Wash or Ceravee with my Clairisonic and Lancome Tonique Confort toner and Lancome Renergie Night moisturizer (I use it in the am, at night, all day...it's my fave). I'm really looking for suggestions for a peel/serum, etc. I'm wanting to try some more in-depth skincare beyond just cleanse/tone, etc. I did just buy the Ole Henrikson The Works Kit this am, but want to hear what works for you.

A little exfoliating will clear that right up....NOT!
It seems like every time I get makeup done at Sephora the SA comments on my dry/flaky patches on my cheek. (only visible when I put on makeup). Without fail EVERY TIME they tell me a little exfoliating followed by a moisturizer will clear it right up. WHen I protest that I do in fact exfoliate and moisturize regularly, I get only dubious looks. So BT, what advice do you have for me? Here's  what I do: oil celanser for removing my makeup, a calm/gentle cleanser with my clarisonic brush (pm only), followed by FAB radiance pads every PM (chemical exfoliator), moisturize with FAB ultra repair cream (AM and PM), followed by argan oil on top at night. I also use DR Brandt's microderm for physical exfoliation once a week. I also drink crazy amounts of water, but still my skin is. SO. DRY. The only makeup i have found that doesn't accentuate it is DR JArt BB (*Tear* it's just too dark to look natural)  pounced on with a BB.

L'Occitane Ultra Soft Cream (Zesty Lime)
I am a HUGE fan of citrus and fruity scents. I don't care for the addition of florals or musks to anchor them in my lotion. I recently received the zesty lime Ultra Soft Cream and I'm in LOVE! Sniffing it in the container doesn't do it justice. The scent is much more obvious after application. Anyone else tried this one? I hope they keep it around for a long time.
