Pigmentation Treatment Products?
Hi! I have very fair skin so any time a pimple goes away (which thankfully isn't often anymore) it leaves a red spot behind.  I've tried a number of products but they either break me out or just don't work for me.  Any suggestions?

Face products for very sensitive and dry skin
Hi All,    I was wondering if you could give me some recommendations of face products for incredibly sensitive skin that is dry. (Also a lot of redness)   I currently use the philosophy purity cleanser and it is starting to sting my skin (this started to happen very recently - before this it was perfect, no stinging and no redness)    I use the Kiehls sensitive skin moisturizer and it has also started really stinging my skin and making it incredible red.   I've used in the past and they all were not sensitive enough; First aid beauty moisturizer Jose Maran argon oil and milk both bother my skin ALL the glam glow products really irritate (which is so sad because I love the tightening one) There is a black face mask (cant remember the name - i want to say origins but probably not) also no good.  - i am forgetting a ton of stuff    Anything with any type of acid/chemical burns and makes my face turn red.   I've come to the point where I've almost stopped using alot because it really bothers my skin BUT I NEED some moisturizer skin gets really dry in the winter.    ANY suggestions would be sooo helpful!! I've come across this Kopari line - any good?   THank you Steph

Freckles and dark circles!
Hi!! So, I have freckles all over my face, except for right underneath my eyes. Instead, I have dark circles and the "darkest" area is right at the corner of my eye. I currently use face primer, bb cream and concealer, but I still have the dark area. Do you have any recommendations?

Dermatitis, Skin Reactions to Products, Skin Allergies - Post concerns, problems, potential solutions here
I thought I'd start a thread for people to post issues they're having with their skin that relate to dermatitis, reactions to certain products, skin allergies, and similar issues. I think having a central thread may help for sharing ideas and learning from each other.   I have super sensitive skin myself but have been on BT long enough to see that practically everyone has had a skin reaction to some product or another and sometimes sharing with others really helps narrow down the cause and solution. This thread isn't meant to be a place to post about the more common skin issues such as minor acne, wrinkles, etc. that we all experience, but rather a place to post about the more unusual ones relating to specific products/ingredients or longer term ones that are not related to age or hormones such as eczema, psoriasis, rosacea, dermatitis, and just the puzzling things that our skin does from time to time.   I'm not an skincare expert by any means and unless someone asserts that he or she is one, this thread is more of a place to share ideas and experiences rather than a place to seek definitive answers or treatment.    Other helpful threads: Bite Beauty allergic reactions: http://community.sephora.com/t5/Lips/Bite-Beauty-A llergic-Reactions/td-p/2413760

Q. Will the Clarisonic stimulate unwanted hair growth?
I really want to buy a Clarisonic Mia but I'm afraid that it might stimulate the hair on my face to grow thicker. I really don't want my peach fuzz to become more noticeable.    I read this online: Topical hair growth  is caused by sustained surface irritation to an area. These methods can stimulate the blood supply to an area, bringing more nourishment to the area. This can stimulate hair growth.    Has this happened to anyone using the Clarisonic?

Allergy reaction to most Skincare and Makeup
For years now, I have been having what seems to be an allergic reaction to most skincare products and makeup. What happens when I apply my serum and cream or makeup is my eyes water real bad and I have a lot of tears throughout the day. My eyes are never swollen or red though. I noticed that certain products make my eyes water worse than others. For example, eyeshadow primer (Stay Don't Stray, Benefit) or liquid eyeliner (NYC) or especially when I wear foundation... That makes my eyes water the most. (The skincare products I'm using now are the Estee Lauder Advanced Night repair serum and Tidal Brightening Enzyme Water Cream by Sunday Riley). I've tried hypoallergenic products in the past but most of them make my eyes water anyway. I was wondering if anyone has any advice as to how I could exactly find out why my eyes water so much from so many products? Or if there is some kind of test I could ask a doctor for to find out what my allergies are? I was also wondering if simple eyedrops would help, perhaps Visene for allergies? Also has anyone else experienced such allergies, if so I'm really hoping to hear your advice. Thanks! Spoiler (Highlight to read)

SK-II daily use opinions and looking for a great under eye moisturizer that doesn't make your concealer look cakey?????Please advise. Thanks
I had been using a sample of SK-II Essence but think that it is too expensive. Is anyone else using it and how can I achieve results from it? Thinking of buying $99 kit for now. Second, I am 39 and can say I have minimum lines/wrinkles but have noticed that the area under my eyes had tuned REALLY dry. Currently using Algenist balm morning and night plus Supergoop eye cream/37 SPF and after a few hours with make up it starts looking dry again. Looking for a good product to help this area and achieve a better look when using make or without it.

Hi! I am looking to try new skin care products, and I am unsure whether I should try the DRUNK ELEPHANT AHA Moment set or the SUNDAY RILEY Power Couple Duo: Total Transformation Kit...maybe both?

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!

Daily face wash for congested skin!
Hi! I'm looking for a daily cleanser. I don't wear makeup so not looking for something that focuses on removing makeup. I have a scrub I use 3 times a week to exfoliate, but am lacking a daily face wash. 21 and have combination skin. I get the occasional big spot but mainly small bumps under my skin - which I think is congestion. But it means the texture of my skin isn't smooth all over. I recently bough Sunday Riley ceramic slip but haven't noticed an improvement in my skin

hi my name is lily and my skin is a mess. I have super dry skin but am also incredibly acne prone. I don't have cystic acne but more of black heads and the occasional big bump. I really need some thing that is going to help my dryness and my acne. I currently use Clinique liquid mild face soap followed by neutrogena alcohol free toner, then Estée Lauder advanced nightwear repair serum and the lowest strength tretonoin on the market. This combo is ok but I still feel like there is something better out there that could help me! my morning routine is the same cleanser followed by the Clinique even better sunscreen/moisturizer. I would really appreciate any and all rreccomendations!!!!

Skin Care Routine Order?
Hey so I've been really into trying to incorporate different products into my routine, but Its really confusing to understand which order you're supposed to use them in. At the moment, I only use a cleanser and exfoliator but would like to add brightening products into my night time routine.   I see a lot of things for toners, emulsifiers, and moisturizers; Is there a general order for these things to be put on? I usually wash and exfoliate my face at night, but I'm not even sure if some of these things are more for the day... Basically, what are these other things exactly, and after your face is clean and free of extra make up and cell debris, what order should you be using them in?

Pouch Under my Eye
A few years ago, I had an abscessed tooth which was bad enough, but after that was taken care of, there was what looks like a little pouch under my eye and on top of my cheekbone.
