Q. skincare
Hello, so I have sensitive and dry skin and I am currently using aveeno sensitive skin cleanser and face cream and my face is still breaking out. Using Noxzema helps with the redness and irritation but my skin is still itchy especially with the winter months coming up. I'm afraid to wear makeup because I don't want to make it any worse. Does any one have any suggestions for skin care or foundation that would work well with my skin. Thanks for your help.

Prescription Retinoid user needs cream and foundation advice....
I use tazorac (prescription retinoid) and acne gel from the derm...my skin exfoliates constantly and I have yet to find a foundation that works with it.  Also, the only cream I've been using on my face is Clinique redness relief cream and Cerave (drugstore# lotion.  Anyone else have this problem or have suggestions?  I have tried everything from Creme de la Mer to Neutrogena with no luck.   I would love to find something that really moisturizes but doesn't make me break out.

Tria?
I have very pale skin and very dark hair. I have been waxing (legs and bikini) for almost a year now and things are not getting better - the hair is not getting thinner, etc. I am seriously considering buying a Tria to try laser hair removal. Anyone have experience with this? The reviews look good but I have to admit I am a little nervous about dropping so much money on something! Also, I get ingrown hairs VERY easily...will that continue with the laser removal or would it eliminate them? Thanks!

The BEST eye cream's for treating dark circles ?.
Hello everyone,   So I know that this topic has been covered many times before. However I am wanting your help to narrow down the BEST options for an effective eye cream. I've been using the " Bliss Youth As We Know It " eye cream for a while. I can't say that I have found it to be impressive by any means. I'm looking for a cream/gel that has ingredients that are truly going to help make my dark circles less visible. I don't have super dark circles, but they are fairly visible and while I do use corrector & concealer to conceal them when I wear makeup, I do want to treat them as best I can. If you can give me your top picks or give me some ideas on what to look for when shopping that would be great. I believe that if your going to spend a decent amount of money it's going to be on something that has results. I'm not one to be suckered into trying just anything after all :-). Thanks everyone !.

Glossier Prod.'s?
I was wondering if anyone has tried out any of the Glossier items? I am curious a/b the GLOSSIER PRIMING MOISTURIZER?   It sounds like a dream, best of both worlds! You get a good moisturizer (that actually moisturizers) & then kinda like a "Blur" + Semi-Tint" to go along w/ it. They sell a tint too. Anywho it has Hyaluronic Acid in it and a butch of other goodies to combat redness, dryness, ruddiness, etc. I don't have a beauty book & can't remember where it is on the skin tip.   It's dermatologist tested & hypo ( and all that jazz). I was thinking about trying it, but since I just read about it ( and haven't heard anyone talk about it ), I am skeptical / afraid I suppose.   SO, what do you think / know about it? I just bought some of the Belli Anti Blemish (Lactic Acid) face wash from Ulta & some Mario B. Rose Spray & I am trying to check out a diff. Moisturizer (like maybe GLOSSIER) or maybe the E. Lauder EE Cream & was wanting some suggestions. I am gonna keep the new bottle of Clinique Tinted Moisturizer (old but goodie) but I am trying to amp up yet simplify (time wise) my skin care routine. I have a lot going on at the moment. Thanks in Advance

Skin becoming sensitive to a product -- could this be temporary?
I've been using Fresh's Seaberry Facial Oil for about a year now and have loved it so much. However, it looks like recently that I've become sensitized to it. (I took it out of my rotation of skincare products, and the eczema on my face is clearing up.) I still have 75% of the bottle left, so I really would love this to just be a way for my facial skin to ask for a break.    I have an appt with my derm scheduled (but it will be a few weeks). In the meantime, I wanted to see if anyone else had experienced this with a product and was it temporary or permanent?  If it was temporary, how long of a break did you give your skin before successfully trying it again?

I'm currently using First Aid's Ultra Repair Moisturizer for the face and am wondering if I can use their regular Ultra Repair Cream as a facial cream. The face cream is 1.7 oz for $28 and the body cream is 6 oz for the same price. Will the body cream make my face oily or clog my pores?    Thanks!

Foot Softening Cream For Use With Clarisonic Pedi
Hi all,      I'm wondering if anyone who has the Pedi can chime in with recommendations for their favorite foot cream to pair with it.   I didn't have much success with the cream that came in the foot transformation set (I've had my Pedi for almost a year now)  I really like the dry file and the acid boost product, but the cream itself doesn't work for me to keep my feet soft.      I've tried Bliss' Foot Patrol which was ok, and Caudalie Foot Beauty Cream which I found too greasy.    The best I've come across so far is something called Zim's Crack Creme, but my husband complains every time I have to use it, because it has a very intense clove-like smell.  Since I put it on before bed, the smell soaks into the sheets and he claims he can still smell it hours later.   I tried the search bar, but most convos seem to pertain to the Pedi itself. Any suggestions are greatly appreciated!   Thanks.

BELLI Anti Blemish Face Wash
I was just wondering if any of you have used the BELLI Anti Blemish Face Wash consistently w/ great benefits from it  ( I know they have it at Ulta & the single tube is S.O., and their site) ? I am not pregnant but I am having hormonal  changes. I am having some breakouts & ( jaw line mainly but doesn't hurt or really turn red, etc.) & temperamental skin ( & I am going through a detox / Holistic health plan).   I used a sample of it UST 1 time & loved the way my skin looked & felt instantly (& I am about out of my normal face wash). I looked into Juice Beauty but this seems like a better choice ( & price) for what I have going on ( hormonal imbalance & detox of body, etc. ).   It has a bunch of research & screening behind it & it only has Lactic Acid instead of Glycolic, etc. I was also wondering other than the fact our bodies make this on it's own (Lactic Acid), what are the benefits w/ someone like my skin ( & detox)? Also, what is the difference in these acids when it comes to skin type / what's going on w/ skin?    I have dry to norm. skin (more so dry but better), redness in cheeks (gotten better), " can be " sensitive skin, and hormonal changes.   Any info would be greatly appreciated!

I Need Some Real Good Help Please
So to get down to it, I have red (cheeks) & uneven/ blotchy skin  as some of you may remember from past post. OR there are my 2 horrid pic's of my bare face after washing (it's still there in my pic's, blah). It was a quick wash ( as in face wipe, water, and moisturizer) for someone to see what I was talking a/b... so maybe made it a bit more red/ yuck for reference (no judging, lol) . Or I can do an updated pic now if need be b/c I need help!   Anyways, I have: 1.  seen my Derma (2,3 times for this) 2. I am seeing a Holistic Dr. now & I am on a very strict Vegan & Gluten Free Diet. To Heal Me Inside & Out (organs, to skin, etc.) 3. I am using good skincare ( I hope) but I need something to help (not hurt) & cover/heal while I am going through this process. Something easy to apply/use b/c I don't wear makeup hardly ever (unless leaving the house for a hot minute), BUT I am just not digging how my skin looks at all... my self esteem is BLAH!    - I have been on a No Buy all month ( until now ) b/c it's cost $150 just to get my Detox Kit & other needs. I spent close to that $ at the Organic Foods Store too. - I am using: 1. CleanseMax Advanced Naturals Detox 1   for Organ Cleanse & Tone & Detox 2 for general Cleansing & Detofixation. 2. Amazing Grass Green Superfood 3. Bach Original Flower Essence Rescue Remedy for natural Stress relief & healing (4 Drops 3 x's a day) 4. NORDIC NATURALS: Artic Omega-D 5. Designs for Health: Acetyl L-Caritine 6. And I have a Detox Drink  I have to consume 1st thing when I wake that has: (I make it to use for a week) 2 Tablespoons of Organic Lemon Juice, Ginger Root (thumb size), 1 Quart of water, mix and add Organic Cayenne Pepper (Ground) into each drink when poured. 7. I also drink a half gallon or more of water a day. * I am slowly cutting back on my coffee & cig's too. I am in PHASE 1. 8. I also have no meat, & the only bread I have is Ezekiel Bread . Basically everything I eat is organic & fruits & veggies . 9. Working out & stretching, etc. at least 15 min. a day. *  I also have to take Epson Salt & Baking Soda soaks 2 x's a week to absorb missing minerals. Also still taking my Biotin too .     I was told I didn't have Rosacea. It went from dermatitis to inflammation, etc ( I had a cpl of allergic reactions & basically was poisoned by med's I have/had to take).   Sorry for the mini month's life story but I need some advice & suggestions & wanted to let you know I am taking care of my insides as well. It's day 5 of Detox and a week and a day since change in eating, etc.   So what would y'all suggest I purchase for this issue? I have got to do something. Thanks in Advance.

Odd Topic: washcloths

I don't have so many so once I'm out til laundry day, I just use my good ol hands to wash my face. However, I use an oil cleanser at night and would prefer using a washcloth for this.    The ones I like most I've bought from target. What do you use for washing your face?

It's the second time that a Dior rep/salesperson makes me feel totally gross!!
I went to a Dior counter inside The Bay this weekend, looking for a blush, and the rep made me feel like crap. She kept saying that my skin was so oily and full of blackheads and toxins with this look of disdain on her face, like if I was the most disgusting person in the world. I know I don't have great skin, but I pamper it, I use quality products, and honestly, I'm not embarrassed by the way my skin looks. And it's the second time that I see a Dior salesperson, and it's the second time that it happens. Was that really necessary?   I go to Sephora often. I go to Mac, to the drugstore.

Thoughts on Paula's Choice?
Do you agree with her views on skincare products?  I'm on a hunt for my Summer night serum & moisturizer. I think I'm going to purchase the Perricone Blue Plasma even though it stinks so bad of fish & I hate fish. I've been researching products a lot and one of the sites I was on was Paula's Choice. She is not a fan of the serum... Actually the more I read through her "beautypedia" reviews, it seems like she's not a fan of a lot of products. I also got a feeling she was mainly trying to push her own products and Olay.  Examples:  - She's against treatment cleansers since it's just "washed down the drain". I have to disagree with this. When I use a treatment cleanser, although they can be drying, I do see improvement in my breakouts.  - Witch Hazel is bad. I find witch hazel to be an important ingredient when choosing a toner. She think it's just as bad as alcohol if not worse.    Products she gave a "poor" rating to:  - Anthony Logistic's Glycolic cleanser got a poor rating because it doesn't contain any glycolic acid.  - doctor dennis gross's A/B pads since we can just skip step 2 by simply splashing water on our face to deactivate step 1.  - Dior Capture Totale One Essential Serum because it's not a "miracle serum" since it's primarily just "water, slip agents, and alcohol" - ExfoliKate - Just about every Ole Henriksen product I love   - Origins Checks & Balances, Charcoal Mask & every other decent product from them - Most Murad products   I do agree with a few points she makes, like companies need to stop putting active ingredients in clear vials so the sun doesn't break down the properties of the treatment. Also jar packaging is a big no-no for her. I understand that some creams are too thick to be put in a pump, but what about those airless jars that Bosica & Dermadoctor are using? I hate sticking my fingers in jars & the air does break down the active ingredients over time...  Overall though, I don't think I'll be going to her site when I'm researching a new product I want to try.

Recommendation for Moisturizer with SPF
Hi,   I am hoping someone can help me find the right moisturizer with SPF. I have used Simple Light Moisturizer for a while, and I'd like to find something with a higher SPF, preferably something 30+.   I have really sensitive skin (my dermatologist thinks I might have rosacea, but she's not sure), and for some reason my skin is very reactive to physical sunscreen. I tolerate chemical sunscreen much better. Mineral and plant oils tend to be a problem too. I also have oily, acne-prone skin so I am looking for something that is not greasy or heavy.   Any recommendations for a gal like me? I'd appreciate any suggestions. Thanks!

Mixed messages: Do I really need an 'under-eye cream/serum'?
So after researching under-eye skin care, I am finding some controversy over whether we really need to purchase moisturizers specifically for the eye area or not.   What I am reading states that a good daytime face moisturizer or serum should be sufficient for the under-eye area.  The products specifically formulated for under-eye are just twice as expensive for less product.   Is this true in your opinion?   I have fine-lines under my eyes at age 46 that need moisture in order to resist the 'concealer creasing' that occurs throughout the day.   There's got to be a good daily moisturizer that does the trick without having to spend a fortune on these little bottles of eye cream/serum.   What do you think?
