After I wash my face, I notice that my skin gets dry. I notice when I try to apply my make up it looks really flakey and it doesn't go on very smooth. Is there a good primer that you recommend to put on before I apply my make up so it goes on more smooth?
Often people ask for recommendations on a skincare routine or for specific products/combinations. This might be a place to share your everyday skincare, both AM and PM. A skincare "what are you wearing" as it were. Hope this is useful. *Age - 40 Skin type - oily/combination Current skin condition - quite dehydrated (winter/indoor heating)* 01/17/16 - AM skincare in the order I used 1. Nude Jelly cleanser (love) 2. Pixi Glow tonic (5% glycolic toner - love) 3. Omorovicza Queen of Hungary Spritz (sample) 4. Radical Skincare Youth Infusion serum - hydrating and anti-ageing (new to me. Testing) 5. Bobbi Brown Hydrating Eye Cream (like) 6. Elemis Pro-Collagen Marine cream (really like as an AM moisturizer) I will try to post PM skincare tonight so the post can be comprehensive. General comments - Okay skin. Apparently the age between 38-42 is a transformational time in hormones (dehydrated skin/spots), so I am more aware of how my skin performs/reacts . My skincare definitely has more "actives" now than before.
I was thinking we should have an "official" NUDE Skincare thread, in case something comes out of this new NUDE story that is happening lately. ( And even if not. ) So we can follow it all here. There are some threads, but those are more just questions and inquiries about NUDE stuff. It would be easier to have all things NUDE at one place, so we can all share news, updates, those possible new products, and anything NUDE here. This is an announcement on Beautycounter about NUDE Skincare: "It is with great excitement that we announce Counter Brands, LLC, parent company of Beautycounter, has acquired the worldwide assets of NUDE Skin Care, Inc. and NUDE Brands, Ltd. founded by Ali Hewson, the wife of musician and social activist, Bono. As a result of this deal, and their genuine interest in our products and mission, Bono will join the company as an investor and Ms. Hewson will join the Board of Directors of Counter Brands, LLC. Similar to our partnership with Target, this validation from such respected public figures will lead to increased brand awareness and client base. We are thrilled to have them join our team. The synergy between our two companies – from mission to ingredient selection process – makes NUDE a logical and compelling addition to our growing brand portfolio. We believe that incredible things are possible for our business and our unwavering advocacy work in D.C. For the foreseeable future, the Beautycounter and NUDE lines will exist as they do today." They also said: "“We will continue to sell through their existing channels of distribution,” Renfrew said of Nude. “The idea is to grow the channels of distribution as well as the product line as a whole,” she said." Also: "NUDE products are currently available in the US on Sephora.com, across Europe in Space.NK stores and online, in Australia in Mecca stores and Mecca.com." Response from Sephora's CS ( 6/30/2016 ): "The Nude Skin care line has been highly anticipated with our clients, and we can certainly appreciate your interest! At this time, some of the NUDE products are limited edition and will be on our site as supplies last, while other products are on our site to stay! We suggest staying tuned to Sephora's promotional emails, as new product launches are frequently announced via email. Additionally, keep checking back on our website under the Quick Link "Just Arrived"." If you have any news, please feel free to share them here. If you have questions, post them here, and hopefully someone will have answers. Or we can all "investigate" together and try to find out what's cooking.
Just started using Kate Somerville products about a week ago... used the Eradikate treatment which I dip q-tips into, and for the past few days I have been using the Eradikate line cleanser and have used the foaming face mask twice. Here's where it gets complicated: I have combination sensitive skin with cystic acne. I only get a few at a time usually, or just one, but they are always big and horrible. A couple weeks ago my cystic acne turned into impetigo, a staph infection on my face. This has been healing for awhile now and I waited to start Eradikate until it was all closed up. Eradikate has not been clearing up my cysts at all. I really, really wanted it to work because of all of the raving reviews, but the size does not shrink At my last derm appointment where I got 3 cortisone shots for a couple of cysts, he asked if I would try accutane, but I said no. I have physical health issues and do not want to complicate things with accutane. Here's the other thing.. I was an idiot and have not been moisturizing since starting Kate Somerville's products. I was leaving the pink sulfur treatment on overnight and knew that my skin could possibly dry out, but figured that just a few days without moisturizing would be ok. Now my skin is dry, scaly, bumpy, and looks horrible . Tonight I used the glam glow hydrating treatment mask (only for 5 minutes because it burned my skin), then followed up with using Kate Somerville's daily moisturizer for the first time. TLDR: I am wondering if there is something better for me to use for my sensitive and cystic acne-prone skin than Kate Somerville's line. I thought that it sounded great from all of its reviews but I'm seeing now that I may have been wrong. Tomorrow I plan to go to lush and pick up their full of grace serum to try to restore some moisture. Does anyone have good skin care recommendations for sensitive combination skin? I would consider exchanging my Kate Somerville products if something is more fitting. Thank you so much.
Hi! I have been using the Dr. Gross daily pads. I was not noticing that much of a difference until a night when I forgot to do the second step. Now I only use the first step and I love it. I am looking for a similar product so I don't waste half of my purchase. I am mainly using it for acne scars. Thanks!!
I just received new order of Clair Light 01 concealer. I did not know the # for this concealer had changed although the name for the color stayed the same. Wondering if the 01 is as grey as it appears on outside of the tube. I hate to open it if the color is different than it was the last time I purchased Clair Light 02.
We're blabbing about everything else these days, I figured I'd check in and see what people are watching when it comes to TV shows and movies! It would be foolish to think that this thread could remain spoiler free, so let's be courteous to one another and be sure to spoiler your spoilers. If you don't know how, it's that super adorable little yellow button on the toolbar, located to the right of the bold/italic/underline/strikeout buttons. DONT FORGET: If you happen to be the most recent post, your first sentence or two of your post will show up EVEN IF ITS IN A SPOILER. So please take care if you're going to go dropping spoiler bombs. Anywho... I just saw the movie PHOENIX last night and it was absolutely spectacular. Like Academy Award spectacular. If you're fortunate enough have showings in your area, I cannot urge you enough to go see it. So whatcha'll watchin' these days? What are you anxiously waiting for to start back up?
If i'm matched 1y06 what color should i buy in hourglass immaculate? It doesn't have an exact match and i don't want to buy the wrong one. i've tried "shell" before and it looked way too yellow. Should I use a primer with this one? Any recs? I have an extremely oily nose/chin but normal skin elsewhere.
I love the LXMI Crème du Nil Pore-Refining Moisture Veil but I travel a lot and every time this creme leaks out of the container. Does anyone have a suggestion I can try to avoid the leaks? I cannot imagine not using it but it is getting expensive to lose so much product all the time. I wish they would redesign the packaging as it seems this may be an issue. My original order leaked out and had to be replaced with the one I am using now. BTW....this stuff is so good...particularly after a long flight or a late night. I just love what it does for my skin.
Before you start a course of chemotherapy your doctor explains all the common side effects to you, there are the standard ones we've all heard of before including hair loss, nausea and increased risk of infection and then there are the less known ones such as sore nails and taste changes. But changes to skin are not really talked about in much detail. I was warned that my skin would be more sensitive to sunlight and could become dry but I was so preoccupied by my impending baldness that at first I didn't really think about my skin - that soon changed. So how did chemotherapy affect my skin? I found that it made it very sensitive and dry, but a plus point was that I never really got blemishes which was a welcome change for me. The steroids I took turned my face a lovely shade of puce for a few days too (I used make up to help with this and will reveal more in a later post). I quickly found that I had to adapt my skincare routine to suit my now very different skin type. At first I did a lot of Googling, blog reading and general online browsing, then when I had the energy I went to department stores and asked for samples to try. I highly recommend this. It is important you try a product before you buy it and do a patch test because skin reactions can be common during chemotherapy and the last thing you want is an even redder face.

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?
I have been lurking around Instagram and I found a brand called Indie Lee. I have taken a look at their website and I'm kind of interested in their products. I haven't found many reviews on this brand so I would like to hear some opinions. I saw a Kate Somerville EradiKate "lookalike" from Indie Lee which is called the Blemish Lotion, I think. I also saw a Blemish Stick which is made up of witch hazel. I am very curious as to whether any of these two products are effective in treating occasional pimples. If anyone has ever tried products from Indie Lee, please let me know! I would love to hear your opinions before I go ahead to blindly and impulsively purchase some items to try out
I really love to use exfoliating cleansers. I truly loved, loved, loved the Laura Mercier, Flawless Skin Face Polish, and gave used it for about 4 years. I was so very disappointed that it has been discontinued. I would like to know, has this product only been discontinued in the Sephora stores or by Laura Mercier completely? When I found out I could no longer get this product I started looking around on this web site and I found, "exfoliating powders", there were only a few of these powders but they were quite pricy! Then I found the Sephora brand...Metamorphosis Exfoliating Powder, only to find out that this has been discontinued! I bought one of the jars, immediately went home and tried it, then went back and bought 3 more jars and if I see a jar in the stores ever again, I will buy it until they are completely gone from the stores! This powder is so great! You can mix it with your regular cleanser and you can even mix it with a little bit of water! It is even better than the Laura Mercier product that I used for so long. Now I have to find another exfoliating product! I'm guessing that these 2 products are being discontinued because of poor sales...that's just to bad...they were so good!
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
