Nighttime Skincare Routines - Please Share!
Hi Everybody! I am curious if anyone has followed the same nighttime skincare routine for quite some time and would like to share? I have been bopping around with brands so I haven't become loyal to any yet. I am loyal to certain kinds of products tho. I love toners and beauty oils. I have my Clarisonic Mia 2. Which I love but haven't used any face wash with it besides the Clarisonic brand. My full nighttime ritual is:   1. Clinique Take the Day Off Oil 2. Lancôme Bi-Facil Double Action Eye Makeup remover 3. Boscia Detoxifying Black Cleanser or Mia with Clarisonic Acne wash (depending on day. Only use my Mia 2 or 3 times per week) 4. Neutrogena Pore Minimizing toner 5. Shiseido Ultimune Power Infusing Concentrate. 6. Clinique Turnaround Overnight Moisturizer 7. Philosophy Hope in a Jar eye cream.   A lot of steps I know! I skip some depending on how dry or oily my skin is currently. Plus when I use a mask I'll skip toner and once a week I use my Erborian Solid Oil Cleanser.   If anyone has a ride or die routine they have been loyal to for a long time please let me know. I love suggestions and seeing what other people swear by!

New Makeup Brand Suggestions
I currently use MAC or Black up Paris with the Skindinavia primer and Finishing spray, but I get even oiler as the days go on. Also, the make up is transferrable. Any suggestions of new brands for a matte finish? I am Afro-Caribbean with Medium dark skin. Someone suggested that I try smashbox.

Drugstore BB Cream for oily skin?
So I need your help. Can anyone recommend a good drugstore BB cream for oily skin? My little sister, 16, wants to start using a BB cream but I don't really know what to recommend to her because  I don't have oily skin, mine is pretty dry so I like a more dewy look. Also, i'm rather partial to the Bobbi Brown & Diorskin nude BB creams and being 16 that a little out of her price range. So any recommendations would be appreciated, thanks!! Also, feel free to throw in any good skin care products.

oily but dehydrated?
So i have been going through this struggle for years and can't find a solution. I have pretty much given up on make up/skin care and have returned everything to sephora. I have a very oily t zone but my skin is also dry. I will apply a primer and foundation but for some reason every foundation sticks to dry patches on my face that i didn't even know i had. I thought i had "combo" skin which is what everyone at sephora calls it but every product they have given me doesn't help my skin at all. I also have very red sensitive skin. I've used oil free moisturizers to try to control my oil but it just makes me even more oily. I use the peter thomas roth oil free gel type moisturizer and the gentle cleansing pads (sorry i don't know the name off the stop of my head) and the firm x exfoliator. I use the cleanser by first aid beauty with a clarisonic. the glam glow super mud mask has helped clear out my large pores so much but now i have holes in my face!! there is NOTHING that will help tighten them. I'm just so upset because i love make up but i can't find anything in skincare that will help me. please help!!!!

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

hello! i'm 23 and just looking for new products to try to make my skin look better. i use bare minerals products for face coverage. and dermatologist prescribed face products including Cetaphil. looking for a new exfoliator (always have used st ives) because lately my nose/sides of my nose get red/tend to break out after using this exfoliator, i only use it 1-2 times a week at night and i make sure to scrub lightly, so i think i just need something better and for sensitive skin. also, any others tips/products that can be helpful towards acne scars/oily skin would be super helpful, thanks!

best products to help even out acne prone sensitive skin
Hello. I have an oily skin and for the past few months had a lot of breakouts. I went to a dermatologist and took a treatment which helped me greatly. Now that my skin has got rid of most of the acne and blackheads I have some acne marks and hyper pigmentation which I would like to treat now. However, as I have been struggling against those breakouts for the past few months I am being very skeptical of many products as I am scared they might break me out again. I need something that will help even my skin tone and texture. The price of the product is not an issue as long as I am sure It will help with the hyper pigmentation(post acne marks, slightly uneven skin tone, and some freckles on my T zone) and also fight against future breakouts. I would like anti acne products, serums, cleansers that're dermatology tested and clinically proved to work. Would appreciate any kind of advise and recommendations.

Liquid or Powder Foundation for Large Sebaceous Filaments?
After extensive research I have found out that what I thought were huge clogged pores on my nose are actually called sebaceous filaments.   I been told to never, never, never pick at them because you can damage the skin. Your nose gets red and inflamed and causes foundation virtually impossible to stick to. (wish I knew this like a year ago) Now I been on a liquid foundation kick for a while now. I have combination skin with my nose being EXTREMELY oily with large pores and sebaceous filaments and my chin being dry.   I love the dewy look I get from liquid but my nose just doesn't agree with it and even with primer, my sebaceous filaments get enlarged big time and my nose just completely rejects it. its like it doesn't even absorb it just sits on top of the skin. I would love to go back to powder but im afraid of the possibility of it grabbing dry patches and showing off my wrinkles. Anyone have suggestions if I should go back to powder? Anyone with large sebaceous filaments have better luck with powder? If so, can someone recommend a brand?

sunscreen and Skin care
  Spoiler (Highlight to read) Spoiler (Highlight to read)   Hello! Spoiler (Highlight to read)     Hello!   Well first of all, i have oil skin, and i haven't gotten the right formula sunscreen. I used this one by neutrogena and i broke me out because of the type of formula they had. it wasn't the liquid one. However, i am looking for a good non oily sunscreen that has great SPF protection.      Next, I heard it is good to start using anti aging products while we are young! As i mentioned, sunscreen is a go to for any season, what are good moisturizers, night creams, that are anti aging, non oily, greasy and that has the right formula consistency that i can wear? please let me know guys! It would be greatly appreciated!

Skincare advice for late-20-something
I just turned 27 about a month ago. I am looking to add a night cream or serum to my skin care regimine. My main concerns are my oily skin, redness / uneven skin tone and large pores. I always feel like I have to pile on makeup to cover up my awful skin, but I'm sure that is just aggrevating it more. It's a vicious cycle! I am also interested in starting with anti-aging treatment possibly... but not my number 1 priority. I was wondering if maybe a retinol cream/serum would work for the problems I've listed? Or any other suggestions are welcome - including brands to try! Thanks!
