Skincare routine for oily skin ?
Hey all, I need recommendations on a skincare routine. I have oily skin, and there has been times that I breakout. I'm not sure if it's because I don't cleanse my skin well, or if it's just the foundation that I use. So far I wash my face every morning and night. I use Philosophy to take off my makeup first, then I use the clarisonic gel cleanser with the clarisonic machine which I love. Is there something I'm missing ? How do you care for your oily skin ?

What Skin Care Brands Do You Recommend?
I've been looking for a new skin care routine because what I am using now is not working at all. I've tried products Kate Somerville, Clinique, Boscia, Philosophy, Fresh, Amorepacific, Dr. Jart+, NARS, NUDE, Origins, Shiseido and nothing has worked. I've also tried First Aid Beauty but I don't feel like my skin gets a good clean. I have Oily, Acne Prone skin. My skin breaks out easily to certain products. Does any one have any recommendations? I've been looking at the brand Tria but I know they only have a cleanser and a serum so i'm gonna need a moisturizer. Please help me.

I went a little mask crazy
And would like some input on how to use them, in what order, and frequency. I have sensitive, acne prone, oily skin. Though lately I have had very minimal breakouts and it seems to be more balanced (yay). I can get dry patches if I'm not careful.    Anyway, I got the PTR mask sample kit and it contains the Cucumber mask, the Rose mask, and a Pumpkin enzyme mask.    I also got samples of Glamglow and Fresh perfecting mask with the recent promo.    Anyone have any input on how I should use them because right now I want to use them all lol.

Favorite Summer Night Cream?
My skin is generally normal/combination, and I get more oily in the summer and more dry in the winter. I've just ran out of my winter moisturizer - Kiehl's Ultra Facial Cream - LOVE this stuff but it's just too heavy for me right now. Lately I wake up with quite an oily face.   So I'd like to know - what is everyone's favorite summer night cream/moisturizer? Some of the one's I've been reading reviews for are the Korres Pomegranate Cream-Gel, Boscia Oil Free Moisturizer, and Origins Night-a-Mins. I've also used Clinique Dram. Diff. Gel and I liked it but considering other options too. Any thoughts/recs are appreciated!!! : )

Transitioning away from Tazorac (retinoid)
I've been using Atralin/Tazorac for about 6 months now to deal with some hormonal acne issues. My skin has pretty much returned to normal, with the occasional pimple here and there, but nothing compared to the flare up I had a while ago which prompted the use of these retinoids. I find that they make my already shiny face even worse, especially during the summer. I would like to transition away from these strong retinoids and maybe begin using a moisturizer and/or serum at night that contains some type of retinol to ensure that my skin remains youthful and (hopefully) acne free, while reducing some of the oiliness that medication tends to contribute to. My current skincare routine involves washing twice a day with a gentle cleanser (Neutrogena Cream Cleanser), toning with Thayer's Rose Witch Hazel to balance the pH, Origins Zero Oil moisturizer (for day time), and using the Clarisonic at night along with the retinoid and a tiny amount of FAB Ultra Repair Cream to combat any flakiness. Any suggestions as to how I can revamp this routine?

Oils to combat/treat oily skin? How to correct/treat my Nose?
PLEASE, if you know how to treat OILY SKIN with OILS, help me!   I'm so desperate for any advice, product suggestions, methods...anything that may help.   If you have used Oil to Combat Oil, please share how you did it & how long it takes skin to figure out I'm not starving it anymore!    It's natural to want to avoid or strip areas of our skin that's oily. Like my NOSE, it's gotten super oily since menopause that I can't get myself to even apply serum much less moisturizer.   I know that when you deplete skin of oils, it kicks up the production. I saw it happen to my son before we took him to a dermatologist.

Stubborn Forehead Breakouts
Nowadays, it seems like the only place I ever break out is my forehead. And they are small, under the skin pimples. They're not very visible, but I can feel them when I touch my face. I've tried salicylic acid treatments, tea tree oil, and spot treatments. But nothing seems to keep them at bay. Once I get rid of one, another pops up.   Any help is greatly appreciated.

Makeup for PCOS?
I've been diagnosed with PCOS for many years, and I take birth control pills, along with Metformin. I think the medication is what might be making my skin SUPER oily with really large pores and acne. I've tried just about everything to control my oily skin and hide my pores, but NOTHING seems to help!! Does anyone know if there's anything that can finally stop my oily skin and minimize my pores and acne or is this just a PCOS curse?

Nothing helps my oil slick face
I have oily skin...and it's even worse in the summer. I have used: Smashbox primer, Revlon primer, Maybelline primer, Rimmel primer, Makeup forever primer, and am currently using Neutrogena's primer. I've tried Smashbox, NYX, Rimmel, Benefit, and Kat Von D foundations. Nothing is helping. I also have red, sensitive skin with large pores, so I need something matte, oil free for sensitive skin. I'm not even worried about price anymore, I just really need a good face routine. I use Neutrogena's face wash and oil free lotion 2x a day, prime, foundation, then power and 2 hours later my face looks wet! it's gross and I use a pack of oil blotting sheets a week. Any suggestions would be awesome!!!
