Acne scars/black spots
I have suffered with kp for years since junior high on my legs.  It causes breakouts and scabs to occur.  After they heal, I am left with black spots/scars on my legs.  I also have this problem on my buttocks.  Do you have any suggestions on how to fade these scars/spots?

Dark Circles Problems
Does anyone have any suggestions for a great dark circle skincare product or cover up??  I have fair skin and very noticeable blue/purple dark circles under my eyes.   To make it worse I have a face full of freckles, which I do love, but  if I try and use concealer on my dark circles it draws more attention to the area because it becomes the one non freckly place on my face.  Any suggestions?  Thank you!

CA drought and your skin
Hi ladies,   I'm curious if any California peeps are having skin issues, possibly related to the drought. My skin has always been oily and acne prone, but I've noticed in the last year that it's become more and more sensitive. And the last few months it has suddenly become sensitive, dry and itchy. I have an appt. with a dermatologist to see what's going on (unfortunately, the first available appt. is more than a month away), but I'm curious if others are experiencing similar issues. I know the environment can impact your skin in many ways, so I would not be surprised if the drought is making my skin unhappy.

Caudalie Vinoperfect Enzymatic Peel Mask
I have very dark spots all over my chin area (these are self inflicted - i used to tweeze stray hairs without looking in a mirror) and at the last VIB Rouge event the rep convinced me to buy this. Just wondering if anyone has gotten great results from this mask. I just feel like after using it twice per week for a few weeks that it isn't even doing anything for me.

Products and eyeshadow for eczema around the eye
Hello! I have a friend who has eczema around her eyes and she can't wear any eye shadows because of it. I don't know all the brands of eyeshadow she has tried, but the only brand from Sephora (high[er]-end) is one of the Urban Decay Naked palettes. Most of the time it immediately burns and causes redness/rash. With the Urban Decay palette it took about five hours. Do any of you have recommendations for good eye creams to try and also some eyeshadow products that wouldn't cause such a reaction?? Thanks in advance for any suggestions you may have!

Getting rid of puffy under eyes
For as long as I can remember I've had puffy under eyes. I don't really have issues with dark circles as much as general puffiness.   I know it doesn't help that I tend to pound water right before I go to sleep - something I've been doing since I was very little. So I'm willing to accept what that creates but would love any ideas or products that can quickly eliminate under eye puffiness and tighten that skin back up.

Oily forehead, Eczema under nose/chin, hormonal forehead/chin acne, and rosacea on cheeks/chin.
I don't know what to do with my skin.   I'm currently using: - PERRICONE Hypoallergenic Gentle Cleanser - Eucerin Soothing Repair Creme on my eczema  - ORIGINS Charcoal Mask once or twice a month - ORIGINS Zero Oil™ Lotion on oily areas   I need some help. I'm sick of this. I can't wear makeup because it either flakes (dry areas) or just clumps or melts off (oily areas). I've never found a foundation that has covered the redness either.   What can I do? Anyone else have this or a similar issue? (PS. I can NOT use any Milk Cleansers or anything like that containing milk.)

Q. Sensitive skin testing
Hello! I have a question for those of you who have been to a dermatologist. Do they have some sort of skincare ingredient testing? For example, would they be able to say, You're allergic to Titanium Dioxide and Niacinamide. Or would they just say, You have sensitive skin. Avoid x, y and z.   It seems like everything I try, even if the product says it's for sensitive skin, I break out in red spots/bumps which I assume are from allergic irritation. When I stop using the product, the bumps go away.   The two products that I've been trying to look for are a moisturizer with SPF higher than 15 and something to lessen post acne marks. It has not been a simple task!   Any insight or info would be so appreciated! Thanks.

Any tips on getting rid of broken capillaries on the face?
I have a few small broken capillaries/spider veins on my face, which I blame mostly because of daily exfoliation with my Clarisonic. I've pretty much stopped using the Clarisonic for 2 months now, but I was wondering if there's anything else I can be doing to help get rid of or minimize them without using concealer or laser. Thanks!

Hi Ladies!   So sometimes my skin just gets a little itchy or irritated, and I start scratching at it without thinking. Obviously this is bad, especially as I have oily and acne-prone skin.

Anyone Try The 24k Donna Bella Products That Were On Hautelook?
I bought three different 24k Donna Bella products from Hautelook recently because I thought it was a much less expensive way to try the brand.       I tried one of the products the other night - the 24k Deep Facial Peeling.  It left an awful gum residue on my face that actually balled up and got stuck on every facial hair on my lower jaw/chin area.  I had to use alcohol to remove it.  I am wondering if Hautelook sold expired or bad product?  It is also a non-returnable final-sale item, and Hautelook is refusing to take it back.      Has anyone else tried this product?  If so, does it really do this, or did I get a bad product? I am now afraid to try the other products I bought because I have to wonder about their freshness/authenticity. Thanks!

$10 price increase??
I was thinking of stocking up on my winter favorites and stumbled upon the Kate Somerville Goat Milk Cream. This is my HG winter moisturizer, so imagine my surprise when the price was $10 more than the last time I bought it!! There was no product reformulation or packaging as far as I know for the $10 addition. I've seen maybe $1 or $2 increases for other products yearly and usually with a product reformulation, but $10 is a bit steep IMO.   Very disappointed in the kate someville brand for doing that Anybody else have this experience?

Q. How to layer skin care products? (acne medication and multiple creams)
I'm using Differin in its cream form (while also cleansing, toning, and moisturizing.) My moisturizer is Sheer Transformation from Ole Henriksen's line (in the blue jar,) and it's a cream, but it's very lightweight and not thick or heavy at all (so more gel like, but it "looks" thick.) I also use a cream-serum and a night cream from Eucerin that targets facial redness. All are creams. Is there a certain way I should layer them? I always moisturize before I apply Differin because my skin's a little sensitive to it and get's red when I apply DIfferin before I moisturize. I'm just confused on what happens after I moisturize...any advice?

Hi all!  I've been browsing the forum and found many suggestions for acne scar treatments.  So I was wondering what the best product is for acne scars?  I don't want a spot treatment or a peel, but an overall face serum/treatment.  But I don't want a face lightening product (I don't want to lighten my whole face/complexion).    Also, can I use these acne scar treatments in conjunction with another serum (such as an anti-aging serum)?  Thanks ahead of time for your advice/suggestions/answers!

Facial MASKS Confusion
I want to start using hydrating facial masks. I hear the *gasps* in horror already when I typed "START USING."   Anyhoo, the reason why I don't use masks is that I have a bad habit of using something, hating it, never to try again. "Masks" in the 70's-80's were like goop that dried, got crunchy, flaked off, paralyzed any facial movements, then ripped off the surface of your skin. Or, a more gentle MASK was like Elmer's School Glue.   I read a little about some Hydrating Masks...they sound like a heavy night cream/moisturizer. Over night & 24 hour mask? It doesn't peel off? See what I mean by the confusion?   Sounds like they redefined "Mask." I guess it applies to whatever you slather on your face, then remove.    What are some really good Hydrating "Masks" that hydrates/treats skin, but doesn't contain anything that exfoliates? (For Mature Skin)

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.
