Moisturizer Suggestions
I have oily, consistently clogged, acne prone skin that also gets dried out, dull, and is in desperate need of a good moisturizer or serum to get the vitamins etc back in it. I also have hyper-pigmentation, so I use a moisturizer with SPF in the morning. I am also a teenager, so I do not need anything overly expensive or with special anti-aging ingredients. I was looking for suggestions for 2 moisturizers: For nighttime: hydrating, but not pore-clogging, with beneficial antioxidants, vitamins, and anything else that will keep my skin healthy. i basically want to be putting a lot of beneficial ingredients on my skin, not just moisturizing it   morning: matte, non-greasy hydrator with SPF that will not break me out

Oily skin out of control!!
I have VERY oily acne prone skin, mostly in the t zone especially my nose area, I've tried everything from different cleansers, moisturizers, primers, setting sprays, and foundation & powders that are made for oily skin and nothing has worked for me. Currently I'm using the Cetaphil oil control foam wash, neutrogena rapid clear acne defense face lotion, and the cetaphil oil control moisturizer. For my makeup routine I use the Becca Every-matte poreless priming perfector, Tarte amazonian clay liquid foundation, followed by the tarte amazonian clay airbrush powder, then i use blush and bronzer and the Maybelline shine free loose translucent powder, then I top everything off with the Kat Von D lock n load makeup setting spray. With this routine I still get very oily within about an hour of doing my makeup. I don't want to have to retouch my makeup throughout the day or blot if I don't absolutely have to. Does anybody have any suggestions for either my skincare or makeup routine? I'm looking for options that are not super expensive either. Thank you in advance!

If your skin isn't super oily in the morning, try to skip the AM wash. Washing twice a day when it may not be needed may also contribute to stripping skin and being too ... see post

I need a new moisturizer!
I was a faithful user of Clinique's Superdefense Oily to Oily Combination with SPF 25, until they recently changed the formula.  The new one is pretty terrible - it just sits on the surface of my skin all day feeling tacky and making my T-zone oilier than ever.   So, I need something similar to the old formula.  It has to have a SPF, as my skin is fair, and it needs to absorb very quickly, as many moisturizers tend to sit on the surface of my skin.   Any recommendations??

Night Cream to help with dark spots
Hi everyone! So I started a thread recently asking about sunscreen because I am going to buy a sunscreen to use as my daily mositurizer.   However, what I did like about the current mositurizer I use is that it helped treat dark spots and keeps me relativley pimple/blemish free.   So does anyone know of a night cream that treats dark spots? Keeping in mind I have oily skin, and while not hyper sensitive, some things randomly could break me out.   Thanks all!!

Need Advice on Skincare for a 57 Yr Old
I'm definitely pro Sephora and have been a customer for many years. I also can't understand why the stores are not focused on their mature clientele ... I often ask for advice from many stores and always seem to get different recommendations, always from a 20 or 30 something salesperson. These age groups do not know nor have they experienced our concerns.   For the time being, I am just using a Boscia antioxidant daily moisturizer. As a 57 yr old, I need to improve my oily, dull, aging skin - including my neck and chest. When I look in the mirror, I do not see the color I once had. I eat strictly Paleo so know I'm getting the proper nutrition and plenty of supplementation ..... it's the exterior that I need help with.   I have seen in a previous post that alot of the recommendations are Algenist and Origins. I'm also gearing up for my sons wedding on 5/10, so need all the help I can get - some long term and short term improvement goals!   Look forward to receiving some advice on brand and specific items. Thanks!

Help with daytime moisturizer!
Currently, I'm using L'Oreal's Miracle Blur moisturizer with an SPF of 30.  I only purchased it because it was easy on my bank account and has a high level of SPF which I feel I need for my face.  I don't feel it does anything special for my skin and it feels, as well as looks, quite oily.  I usually apply Benefit's POREfessional a few minutes afterwards to make my face look less shiny (I have oily, acne-prone skin).    Can you anyone suggest a good moisturizer with a high level of SPF in it that is beneficial to my skin type?   Thanks in advance!

Boscia Clear Complexion or Black products??
I am interested in trying Boscia's Clear Complexion Kit or some of their Black line. I have tried the Black mask and love it, but not sure about the rest of the products? Background: I have very oily skin, and most products break me out pretty easily. I use Clinique Dramatically Different Gel in the morning now, but find I break out if I use it at night as well. To cleanse I use a Neutrogena cleanser in the shower in the morning and Murad Clarifing Cleanser in the evening after using Boscia Makeup Breakup to get rid of my makeup! Thanks for any advice!

Oily, Acne Prone Skin Help!
I started off using Shiseido products but noticed that when I add a new product to my regime my skin become very oily and unbalanced.  I was thinking, since I use more than a toner and a moisturizer that my cleanser and toner should be gentle and pure.  I switched to Purity by Philosophy and I'm using LUSH's Tea Tree Water for a toner.  I use Boscia's White Mask about once a month and LUSH's Mask of Magnaminty once a week.  I use a serum and a dark spot corrector.  My goal is to have even tone, smooth, acne-free skin and was wondering what else I might do to achieve my goal other than what I'm doing along with vitamins and water.  I know us Beauty Insiders have the answer to everything ;-) Thanks in advance!
