Primer/ Tinted moisturizer/ BB cream?
I finally realized the problem with my makeup routine! I HATE foundation. I hate the feeling of it and the way it smells and the way it looks on me. I have pretty good skin, Im 14 years old but I do have a lot of redness on my cheeks. I just want a primer or a tinted moisturizer or maybe bb cream that will NOT make me look like I am wearing anything but will brighten up my face and make my face look glowy. I dont want to have to set it with a powder or anything or have to apply it with a foundation brush or anything. Suggestions?

Brush recommendations?
I'm looking for an inexpensive brush for blush application. Preferably, a somewhat scratchy one. The ELF brush I've been using fell apart. I bought an ELF brush that is supposedly for blush, but it is WAY too soft to pick up any product (Especially from my beloved Tarte blush).  I guess I could buy the duplicate brush for the one that fell apart, it was actually a bronzer brush. But it worked well.    I have tried a couple brushes from ecotools as well and they are all too soft.

PLEASE bring back Tropical Jasmine Dry Oil Spray!!
Anyone else remember the Sephora Collection bath & body products in Tropical Jasmine?? It is the most amazing scent. I stocked up on the Dry Oil Spray (my fav) when I knew it was being discontinued. Now I only have half a bottle left which I hoard and use only on special occasions. So Sephora, PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE bring back the tropical jasmine scent. I would do anything for any product in that scent!

Need advice on using new PTR products
Hi all, I just used the PTR unwrinkle pads, retinol fusion pm serum, and laser-free moisturizing gel cream.(They came in a kit). My face is a bit tingly so I know I definitely shouldn't use them every night. My question is two- fold. 1. Does anyone have experience, good or bad with his products and 2. How long should I give my skin time to "adjust" to the new products before deciding if the products are right for my skin?

Ole Henrikson Invigorating Night Treatment
I just realized by pump bottle (not jar) of OH Invigorating night gel has an expiration of 6 months after opening as indicated by the "open jar" logo with a "6" in it.  Does anyone have experience using this product beyond 6 months?  Is it safe (ie will not harm my skin) to use past the 6 months?  Is it still effective(ie will I see results) past the 6 months?  There is no way I'm going to finish this before the 6 months are up.   THANKS!

How Have Your Shopping Habits Changed in the Last 5-10 Years?
I was just thinking the other day, how drastically my shopping habits have changed from 10 years ago, when there weren't really many easily accessible online resources for honest beauty reviews. I had a subscription to Allure and based a lot of decisions from that. I also had Paula Begoun's (sp?) original Cosmetics Cop book and used that as a guide, but it was never relevant for very long with companies constantly introducing new products.   5-7 years ago I used blog websites (Temptalia, M&BB, Specktra) and the occasional YouTube video to assist in my shopping. Now, I'm at a point where I flat out don't trust bloggers and YTers who are sent products for review (I believe some of them are being honest but anytime you get a remotely good product for free, of course you'll think its worth it), and I only read Allure if I'm waiting at the doctor's office. I feel like they can't be trusted either, especially when they rave over products that I know are a total bomb and have been skewered on BT, in product reviews, etc.   Now I mostly use customer reviews, posts here on BT, and still check up on items through the Beautypedia. I've also found Instagram to be useful, to a degree, not only to find new items coming out and looks that incorporate things I already have, but also to see what everyone is trying to unload that isn't working for them.   What methods/sites do you guys use now? Or are you one of those people who just buys all the things (in which case, thanks for your reviews and IG posts, haha)?

Hi All, I tried a sample of Tatcha rice enzyme powder ( foil packet, it gave me two uses) and really like how my skin felt so soft and my serum absorbed in so quickly.

A few Glo questions I couldn't find the answers to...
1. After the final treatment in one vial, do I brush my teeth and eat and drink as normal or do I need to let the gel "set"? 2. After the final treatment in one vial, can I put my retainers in or will that stain the retainers? 3.  Can the cord be removed from the actual mouthpiece when cleaning the mouthpiece, without damaging the device? I know that the cord can be removed from the charging device. 4. My teeth are quite small. I am thinking of squeezing one full vial out and using cue-tips to apply. I also want to focus on yellowing by the gumline. This gel will not dry out in 32 minutes correct? Please share your tips. Thank you!
