I need new skincare products please :)
Im 16 and have mildly sensitive skin. My skin is quite difficult to explain because it is acne/oily but it is also quite dehydrated because i disrupted the moister barrier from using products with harsh chemicals.  I was hoping that someone could recommend a cleanser, toner, moisturizer and spot treatment for me.  I also have a Clarisonic and prefer products that are natural and I do not want products that have harsh chemicals. Thank you so much

Help!
I have oily skin.  I use good products for washing my face, but my makeup seems like it disappears a few hours after I put it on.  If I don't use waterproof mascara and eyeliner, it is gone right away.  I can never get eye shadow to stay and although I have used Estee Lauder in the past and like their cover up, I would love to hear any suggestions from Sephora!  Thank you!

Oily Skin-hard to tell what is helping and what is not :(
I continue to have oily, shiny skin, esp. in my T-zone. My foundation matches my skin tone fairly well, except it can at times look cakey and ghost-like--turns out HORRIBLE in pictures sometimes. i have tried so many different foundations, i really would like to avoid having to blend 2 different shades if possible.     I have tried: bare minerals loose powder foundation, chanel mat lumiere long-lasting matte liquid foundation, laura mercier oil free supreme liquid foundation, benefit hello flawless powder foundation, benefit hello flawless oxygen wow foundation, bobbi brown long-wear even finish foundation, estee lauder double wear powder foundation, makeup forever mat velvet liquid foundation, NARS powder foundation, and a host of drug store foundations.    Current makeup/skin regimen: Wash face 2x per day with Clean & Clear Deep Action Cream Cleanser (oil-free) solution (have used it over the years, but skin has never been as oily as it is now.)   Cetaphil Daily Facial Moisturizer w/ SPF 15 (all skin types) Smashbox Photo Finish Foundation Primer (oil-free) Bare Minerals Correcting Concealer in TAN 2 Bare Minerals READY Foundation w/SPF 20 in R330 Tarte Amazonian Clay Long-Wear Blush in "exposed" Bare Minerals Mineral Veil Tarte not-so-slick oil blotting papers (as needed)   I'm also currently on a prescription antibiotic for my skin (face, back & shoulders), Doryx DR 200mg. Not sure if this could contribute to anything but thought i'd list it anyway.   Any suggestions would be great. My skin is super sensitive but I'm open to hearing tips for combatting this oil! i don't know how girls' makeup lasts so long, mine doesn't even last past a few hours. also, I'm hesitant to get matched to a new foundation, but again open to hearing suggestions. I'm filipino so my skin is kinda in between tones.

Is there a BB cream that is good for oily skin and truly acts like a primer? Prefer sheer coverage.
I'm looking for a 3 in 1 product for my oily, mature skin. Some moisture (don't need a lot with my oily skin), broad spectrum SPF and primer. It's the "primer" feature that seems illusive. Many claim to also be a primer, but they sure don't act like a primer!

Recommendations for oily skin
Hello!  This is my first time posting, so I hope I am doing this correctly! I know this same question has been asked before, as I have read through many other threads on this topic, but so far most suggestions have not yet solved my issue, so I thought I would ask on my own behalf.   i am looking for any and all product suggestions to help combat oily skin.i am mostly oily in my tzone, especially the forehead.  I wake up every morning with enough oil on my ore head to soak up 1-2 oil blot sheets.  I am willing to try new skincare products, primers, foundation, etc.  I have already tried more products than I can probably remember!  But anything anyone would like to suggest I would be more than happy  to try!     Thank you in advance!

Need a new EXFOLIATOR and TONER for combination/oily skin
Hello! I'm 20 years old and have combination/oily skin. It is acne prone, and somewhat sensitive..... I have been using proactiv for a few years now and it has helped a great deal with clearing my skin up, but unfortunately the price isn't doing my wallet any good and I want to try new products.  I am looking to find new products for my skin such as a good exfoliator and toner. I hate having pimples and blemishes on my face, so I'm looking for some amazing products that have helped other girls with the same type of skin as me.   Would anyone be able to recommend to me a good exfoliator and toner for combination/oily skin??

My skin can't make up its mind.
I'm 19 years old and I wash my face every time I get in the shower with a scrub as well as a clean and clear product with bursting beads. I know people don't usually like products that dry the skin out, but that's usually what I go for. When I get out the shower my skin feels great, not too dry and not oily, but even before the day ends my face has more oil then I'd like on it. The only parts of my face that ever get oily are my forehead, temple area, and around my nose and occasionally my chin. Other then that my skin is fine, and even though it does get oily I barely break out but let's face it. Oily skin is no fun, nor is it attractive. I want something that's can use that will keep my skin less oily throughout the day

gel moisturizers for very very oily & acne/scarred skin
  I have really oily skin. It got worse when I moved from East Coast to California and it may be that California weather is so dry.  I wake up in the morning my face is oil. I wash it and 1 hr later, my face is oil. I stopped using the oil sheets b/c i heard it can produce more. I have a ton of acne & scars at the moment. I'm deciding whether to start Accutane. If anyone has any opinions on it, please let me know.    I am still learning what works best for my skin, but i really want to give up. I feel that I'm not doing something correctly and maybe Accutane can fix it?   I have used neutrogena oil-free sensitive skin moisturizer before and it worked. The combination skin one made my face really oily. I use Murad skin perfecting lotion. It makes it feel non-greasy.    This is my regimen right now. Please help me correct what I've been doing wrong:   1)cleanser: (dermatologist's personal brand contains 2% glycolic & 2% salicylic acid) & cetaphil daily facial cleanser (i heard cetaphil dries out skin...) 2) toner: Lancome clarifying exfoliating toner & BioSpecific rehydration toning water mist  3) apply my prescibed acne topicals 4) moisturizer: murad skin perfecting  5) spf 15 oil free sunscreen   make up:  -lancome regenergie lift makeup foundation  - MAC mineralize skin finish natural (I use a sponge to apply. how often should i change it?)   I want to try the gel moisturizers though. Any recommendations? Also I want to try the Shiseido Pureness balancing softener. I heard it will allow the moisturizer to go more deeply into the skin? Please advise me. Thank you

Best setting powder for oily skin?
I recently moved from a very dry climate to a very humid climate and my skin is not liking it. I used to have combination skin, leaning more towards dry and now it is quite oily. I've been using the Dior Forever Flawless foundation, followed by B.E. Mineral Veil, followed by Urban Decay DeSlick spray and it seems to work for a few hours but I'm still an oil slick halfway through the day. Any suggestions on a good setting powder? I've been trying to do research, but all the products I've looked at have had pretty "meh" reviews. Thanks!

I have oily skin, but I am fond of the dewy glowing look! Not the oily shining look! I want to know exactly how I can create this look? I know I need to do strong oil control at skin care and base, so that I can use a dewy/glowy foundation.  But I see on Korean girls, even before makeup their skin is SUPER glowing.  How can I get that???   I was trying to attach a photo but somehow I can't I'll figure how to attach a photo.

In the last few years I have tried OH and Clinque 3 step for oily skin but neither has helped me, I have been using a Mia for about 2 months and it has helped some but not as much as I had hoped. Does anyone have any other suggestions of products to use. So here is my routine so no confusion..   Mia 1 x daily AM Clinque 3 step cleanser, toner and moisterizing gel Hourglass primer Clinque Mat foundation or KVD foundation or BMinerals   Still have to blot about two hours after makeup.

Skincare Regimes! Let's talk about them!
Hello friends! I am always curious to know what people's skincare regimes are; how can a skincare fanatic not want to see what other people are using!   My skin is very strange, it is combination (very) oily, dehydrated, and acne prone along with reactive to various products.   Without further ado, here is my current skincare routine!   Morning:   Cleanse - Fresh Soy Face Cleanser Tone - FAB Facial Radiance Pads Hydratation Tone - 100% Pure Rose Water Serum - Peter Thomas Roth Viz 1000 Hydrating Serum Moisturize - Fresh Rose Hydrating Gel Eye Cream - Fresh Lotus Eye Gel Night:   Cleanse - Fresh Soy Face Cleanser Tone - FAB Facial Radiance Pads Hydratation Tone - 100% Pure Rose Water Treat - Kielhs Midnight Recovery Concentrate **  My nose is very breakout prone, so I do not apply any product to it during the day and use a prescription topical acne medication on it every night to stop the clogged pores **   Lips - Nuxe Reve de Miel Lip Balm   Specific  Days   SUNDAY Shave Exfoliate - Clinique Face Scrub (Mens line) TUESDAY Glamglow Supermud Mask WEDNESDAY Shave SATURDAY Glamglow Powermud Mask And there you have it! My wonderful, yet crazy, skincare regime!   I am EXTREMELY interested in seeing what your skincare regime is as I am new to the Advice Talks!   I definitely look forward to seeing the different combinations of products and also looking to see what other products I could potentially use!   I love Skincare! It's the best!   Michael, xo

Best moisturizer for oily acne prone skin
What's the best moisturizer for oily acne prone skin? I'm 23 and still get breakouts here and there. I usually wear Olay SPF 15 moisturizer under all my foundations and the all seem to be oxidizing on my face after a few hours.. Not sure if it's the moisturizer causing this or the foundation.. Currently, I'm trying out UD Naked skin and it seems to be breaking me out. I have used Hourglass Immaculate but I found it a little dry. Possibly looking into Estee Lauder Double Wear Light..

Oily Skin, Acne Prone, Sensitive Skin
Is it true that when you have oily skin, you should use products that are meant for dry to normal skin? I've heard this from someone and they said that you should use products meant for dry to normal skin when you have oily skin because the skin is producing oil because it needs hydration and its not getting it.
