Do you mean 
ok, so i've been thinking of what 'angle' to take for this thread. i'm not talking anything too hardcore, here. but i figured it could be a thread that inspires and informs the little "treats" we can give to our skin with the products a lot of us have at home.   with the massive shift in weather this past week, my skin freaked out. it was so, so thirsty, as the cool air mixed with dry blasts of hot hair sucked all the moisture out. it was a double whammy for me because this cold front coincided with my skin's most vulnerable time of the month (if ya catch my drift).   so when i got home from work yesterday, to work. i wanted to hydrate hydrate hydrate, and soooothe. this is what i used:     took makeup off with a balm. shown here is my usual clinique take the day off balm--i ended up using my boots botanics balm as it's just a bit more rich, which is what i wanted for these purposes. any balm would do though ! removed with warm water and a washcloth. dried skin then second cleansed with an oily non-foamy cleanser. my current FAVORITE cleanser, NUDE  omega jelly. god i love it. massaged for a couple minutes then rinsed. (not pictured, but) i think did a VERY LIGHT exfoliation to ensure my skin was rid of any dead skin hanging about after being dried out. i used AVEDA botanical kinetics exfoliant (a liquid with salicylic acid) PETER THOMAS ROTH cucumber mask. what i love about this mask is how soothing it is. it's NOT hardcore. i put this on then proceeded to watch a movie or something. you can leave it on for as long as you'd like. i think i had it on for 30-45 minutes. then i took it off with lukewarm water and a wash cloth. my skin already felt so. much. better. i then used my new murad hydrating toner. i could've used this before the mask. but what's cool about it is that it helps your skin retain moisture as well as help balance pH levels. but any sort of hydrating toner / floral spritz would do. (caudalie beauty elixir, a rose water, etc) serum. i wanted to use a "hydra" serum--any sort of serum that helps with retaining water. i used this vichy aqualia thermal. caudalie s.o.s thirst quenching serum is also fantastic. oil -- i used my beloved clarins blue orchid oil. i put it on my drier cheeks, but actually...i also used it for a bit of spot treatment. i was getting a pimple below my lip, and now, no more pimple ! moisturizer. as my skin was severely dehydrated (rather than dry) i used my aveda botanical kinetics moisturizer: the first ingredient is water (hydrating) and the second ingredient is aloe (soothing).  hours later i spritzed some beauty elixir and applied more moisturizer before bed. and today my skin is back to normal !!   so...this is a sort of routine you can loosely follow (plug in whatever products into the steps) if you're skin is needing a bit of help with feeling tight / dry / thirsty.   i'd like this to be a sort of thread people can use for a reference to see others' product recommendations or methods. all skins are different, so what are your tricks ?

What changes are you making in your skincare regime for autumn/winter? :)
Hey BT gals,   Now that cooler weather's approaching (well, at least in some parts of the country), what are the changes you are looking to make in your skincare regime to make it more season-friendly? Do mention the products you are loving at the moment. Here are some of mine:   - Amping up on face oils at night: TH Replenishing Nutrient Complex is quickly becoming a fave. - Increasing the hydration quotient - by using hydrating serums everyday, more hydrating masks during the week. The Caudalie Vinoperfect serum has been great in that respect since it feels quite hydrating although that's not it's main function. On the mask front, loving the sheet masks from Hada Labo for a boost of hyaluronic acid. - Sunscreen (always a must) - Slathering on lip balms: particularly love the Kari Gran Lip whip at night, and Jack Black during the day. - Thicker body lotions, butters: Currently loving the Sleep range from B&BW. Also eyeing the JM body butters for when the winter seriously kicks in. - Body oils: I love using Jojoba oil on my body at least once a week. Moisturizing w/o feeling greasy. - Burning more candles: Ok, this is not beauty related, but does help to set the mood   Let's hear what changes you've made to your routine!

I love adding in facial oils at night as well. That's usually enough for hydration and I can still keep using my regular moisturizer :) see post

Sticky Solution?
Several of my otherwise wonderful nighttime skincare products leave a sticky film on my face. It's been kind of driving me nuts. So I've been dusting my face with baby powder, but I'm wondering if that counts as sleeping in makeup in terms of undoing the good my skin care products do.  Does anyone have any thoughts or suggestions?

Finding a "parabens-free, fragrance-free, and not too many alcohol" skin care products
here is a little background of me: my skin type is (very) oily, acne-prone and very sensitive. I can get irritated or break out easily if I use a product that contains too many alcohol, fragrance and parabens.   I am all about 100% organic products. I really3x want to find a skin care product which contains no parabens and fragrance. For more specific, I'm searching for moisturizer and serum. Any suggestion or recommendation?

Clarisonic + Oil Cleansers?
Question for those of you who use a Clarisonic or similar cleansing brush. I like using an oil or cream-to-oil cleanser every once in a while. But as we all know, many oil based cleansers can leave a bit of a residue on the face.  I am concerned that an oil cleanser would also leave a residue on the brush/bristles. Has anyone used an oil based cleanser with a cleansing brush, and have you noticed any residue? If so, what's the best way to deal with it - just wash with hand soap? Thanks in advance!

My thoughts on GlamGlow Super Mud Clearing Treatment
First, about me: I have very oily, acne-prone skin, and I'm 46 years old.   I bought it on Amazon because it was way cheaper. First impression is that I really like it. It dried up my pimples with the first mask, and it soaked up the oil on my skin.   I will say that it's very drying, so if you have dry skin, this probably isn't the product for you. Also, it's pretty strong, so wash your face with a mild face wash beforehand -- no acne wash or anything like that.   You only need to apply a thin layer of it. It does have pieces of leaves in it, which can seem strange, but really if it works, who cares?   I kept it on for 20 minutes -- the max recommended. And when I washed it off, I then applied my Eminence Stone Crop Whip Moisturizer.   I've used it most days since I've gotten it, but I see myself using it regularly a few times a week in the future.   Bottom line: I will be adding this as a permanent part of my skincare regime.   Everyone's skin is different, so really what works for me may not work for someone else. t-P376409

Juicing for Clear Skin (and Health)
I've seen several individuals recently mention that juicing has helped their skin.  I was wondering if anyone would like to share recipes and/or recommendations as far as what has worked for them.  I'm also really curious about how much  to drink each day.   I've had a NutriBullet for about 6 months and I've been off and on about using it.  I was really good in January then fell off the wagon.  Over the next week I'm really hoping to get into the habit of juicing every day and eating healthier.  I'm off work four days next week, so I thought it would be a good time to concentrate on starting some healthful habits.   Thanks!

What are your current Top 5 Masks?
Hi all,   I enjoy using face masks quite a bit but tend to mostly stick to a few that I really like and have been using for a while. I just wanted to hear what others love using so perhaps I could venture into those? Please list your skin type ,  5  of your top masks and write a little about  why  you like them, and how frequently you use them.   I'll start (have only 4 though!)   Skin Type: Normal, erring on the dry, dehydrated side Origins Active Charcoal Mask:  I feel this really cleans my pores well, and typically use this at least once a week.   Origins Drink Up Intensive:  Love the hydration it provides without feeling extremely weighty. I can easily use this couple of times a week even in the summer as a sleeping mask. I skip my night cream when I use this.   Korres Vitamin C + Rose Advanced Brightening Facial: This may not be a typical mask but I kind of think of it as a sleeping mask/facial. I've recently started using this and love the brightening effects it provides. Not hydrating enough for my skin so I use a face oil on top.   Sephora Pearl Mask: Provides a nice brightening effect.

Any advice for blackheads??
Hey guys. So within the past month I've noticed some blackheads on my nose- and they could've been there for months and I just noticed them- but then again I'm not sure.. I've never had trouble with acne in my entire life.  But thankfully I have a deluxe samples size of the Boscia Detoxifying Black cleanser, and I also exfoliate every other morning. That seems to be helping but my questions are, what causes blackheads? I've heard its a pretty common issue, so I'm not that worried about it, but I still want to get rid of them. And I also wanted to ask if you can thoroughly get rid of blackheads? (meaning they wont come back?) And this might sound like a dumb question- but can be any chance exercising and sweating cause blackheads? I recently started exercising and soon after started noticing the them. Thanks so much for anyone who can answer!

GlamGlow Supercleanse Reaction
Hi! So, I've been trying a sample of the GlamGlow Supercleanse Daily Clearing Cleanser since I'm in the market for a new cleanser. I have combination/oily/sensitive skin and my chin gets easily congested (I know it's hormonal based and I am taking birth control for it, but it still gets congested). I can get cystic pimples pretty easily there. After using it for 3-4 days at night only, I've been getting a pretty bad reaction to it. My whole face burns, and bumps are appearing on my face with some white heads too. The area around my lips also became super dry. Anyone else have this kind of reaction to it? I've also been trying Thirstycleanse and that hasn't given me any reaction at all, it's quite nice actually.

Is my eye cream expired?
I purchased the Fresh Black Tea Age-Delay Eye Concentrate during the VIB -15% sale in April; however, I haven't started using it yet (I already had another one in rotation).    While I have not used the eye cream yet (or touched it), I remember the Cast Member helping me opened it to see if it was sealed (I specifically asked if it would be okay if I didn't start using it for another 6-8 months so she checked). There was a little lid below the main lid but it wasn't actually sealed.    I didn't think much of it at the time as she told me it wouldn't be a problem if I stored it in a dry, dark place until I was ready to use it. In the meantime, I haven't opened it again, and have it organized in my closet; however, I am now wondering if her opening it once was enough for it to oxidize or go bad in the last 6 months. For an $85 eye cream, I'm hoping it didn't expire untouched...   Was opening it once enough to affect it?     Thanks for the advice!  ♡♡

Vine Vera Skin Care...Any Opinions?
Today I went to the Houston Galleria for a bit of Nordie shopping and Ritz sight seeing. I got pulled into a Vine Vera boutique and was suckered....ahem, I mean....sold on their exfoliator, moisturizer and eye serum.

Cheek reaction
For the past month or so, I have had a strange bumpy texture on the lower part of my cheeks. The bumps are slightly pink at times, but I do not think it is rosacea. I have tried treating them as though they are acne - including using my clarisonic, and that hasn't helped. I cannot think of any new product I am using that would aggravate my skin, and I always clean my brushes. Could these just be clogged pores or something? I do plan on seeing a dermatologist... just wanted to post it here as well. I'm including a photo! Thanks in advance.

i've seen this type of question asked more generally, but i wanted to ask it specific to skincare. not only is it interesting to see what has really worked for people, but it'll maybe highlight some products others are interested in trying !   so: what are specific  products that would cause you to hyperventilate were you to run out ?   mine currently are:   cleansers CLINIQUE take the day off cleansing balm (makeup removal) NUDE SKINCARE perfect cleanse omega cleansing jelly (skin cleanser) toners (acids & hydrating) FIRST AID BEAUTY facial radiance pads (AHA) CLINIQUE clarifying lotion -- MILD (BHA; this one contains no alcohol) CAUDALIE beauty elixir (moisture) MURAD essential-c toner (moisture) oils and serums CLARINS blue orchid facial oil TATA HARPER nutrient replenishing complex (oil) VICHY aqualia thermal serum (serum for dehydration) MURAD rapid age spot and pigment lightening serum (for, obviously, pigment lightening) moisturizers AVEDA botanical kinetics hydrating face lotion masks (i like to have an arsenal for different purposes) REN glycol lactic radiance renewal mask (resurfacing) OLE HENRIKSEN lemon strip flash peel (resurfacing: hardcore) PETER THOMAS ROTH rose stem cell mask (hydrating / soothing / toning / brightening) FIRST AID BEAUTY ultra repair instant oatmeal mask (hydrates /soothes; fantastic for winter) FIRST AID BEAUTY skin rescue purifying mask w/ red clay (deep cleaning)   additionally, a couple products that may reach HG status soon, but need more time in my rotation: TATA HARPER replenishing nutrient complex (oil) added ! TATCHA cleansing oil   can't believe i'm saying this but: it broke me out ????  or it was unlucky timing, but i'm too scared to keep using it. NUDE SKINCARE miracle mask (exfoliating / brightening)** i love this mask. i don't think it'll be HG though as i generally prefer the REN. they're pretty interchangeable though. i consider it a very close 1st runner up ! i like it but it's not HG status. would repurchase, though. CLINIQUE clarifying lotion--the MILD formula (no alcohol / contains BHA)  added ! (replaced aveda exfoliant / BHA option on my list) KATE SOMERVILLE goats milk moisturizer  to be fair...i think this is a LOT to be considered truly HG. but you guys know i have a lot of steps in my daily routine, and these are tried-and-true loves of mine !   edited 9/12/15

Hey everyone! I was just wondering if anyone has used the sleeping mask from the Sephora Collection.

Hello! I am a woman in my twenties with combination skin . I have random break outs and redness in the T-zone. I have been religiously using Clinique's 3-step system, but I have recently substituted the toner for a toner with tea tree oil. While the skin care regimen has been starting to clear up my skin within the last 3 weeks, I recently went on a road trip and stayed in a hotel which for some reason caused me to break out again. I continued my skin care regimen, but all of the dry air in the hotel and humidity/polution in the city really caused be to break out. Any travel skin care suggestions?   XOXO  Sarah

Skin Care Recomendations- Dry/Oily Acne Prone
Just a bit of a back story- I have oily acne prone skin. After months of experimenting with skincare products I  finally was able to clear up most of the acne. For a month I had the best skin of my life, it was hydrated and not super oily with the occasional pimple that I could get rid of in 2 days.   A while ago I got the deluxe sample of the Sunday Riley Luna Sleeping Oil. I started using the night I received it. I used it for about 5 days and I noticed that the area on the sides of my nose had a dry patch on both sides. I could tell because my foundation would cling to that area and it didnt look smooth anymore, my face had texture where I didnt have it before. By the 7th day for the first time ever my skin felt dry and tight, even after I moisturized. I could apply enough moisturizer, my skin would just soak it up. Apart from being dry it would still get oily in my tzone through out the day.     I realized that the Luna sleeping oil was the only thing that I had really changed in my routine and stopped using immediately. My skin has not been able to recover since. It doesnt feel tight but it still looks very dry and it showed when I applied makeup. My foundation clings and cracks on the sides of where nostrils are and looks really dry. The texture really never disappeared but it did subside a bit. I increased my water intake and stop using a bunch of my acne products that would dry out my skin in hopes of it helping, but I cant seem to get it to the state it was before.    Did this happen to anyone else using luna oil??   What are some product recomendations for people with dehydrated/oily/acne prone skin?

My Skincare Routine
So a bit about my skin... I have typical teenage acne prone skin. Its not as bad as what you think but with the occasional spot.. Im really bad at picking and squeezing my face - leaving it red. Any suggestions?  Ok.. so below is my skin regimen below   Personally I enjoy using 2 different cleansers morning and night. In the morning I use Papulex - targeted for acne prone skin. Whereas at night I am loving Herbalism by LUSH. I like using Herbalism at night because it also exfoliates my skin but is not to harsh for my skin. Then I use the tea tree toner from LUSH which closes my pores and refreshens - morning and night after cleanse. Then I moisturise --> again.. I use an oil - free moisturizer by Papulex which I use morning and night which isn't too thick on my face. Once a week I use my vibrating cleansing/exfoliating brush to get rid of the excess oil and dirt on my face following up with a steam and then using my AESOP mask 'anti blemish'. Im really interested in trying ocean salt by LUSH and think I should pick up a sample when I go there next. Do you recommend it? Also the origins gin zing eye cream? What about LUSH's suncreams (personally I worry about putting extra oils on my face throughout the day which may not be needed) Let me know if I could improve this in any way xoxo

After-workout skin
Hey Beauties,   After a super-sweaty workout, I notice that my skin is pretty sensitive. Meaning that I need to use a really mild face wash and then a lighter moisturizer than I normally do.
