Daily Skincare - what are you using?
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.

This is a place to discuss everything skincare.   - Have a question about a product (Or type of product) - Need recommendations - Learned a new tip or trick you want to share with fellow skincare junkies - New to skincare and lost about where to start - Have a skincare emergency ( Bad reaction, broken dropper, lost lid of a jar) Images From top left to clockwise (Essencz, Garnier, Men's Fitness, Harper Bazaar)   We have some great thread about skincare but I feel we don't have a general place to discuss skincare which is open for everything from lowend products to luxury skincare.    Other skincare threads you may like to explore   http://community.sephora.com/t5/Ask-The-Experts/Al l-about-Luxury-skincare-Come-in-and-chat-about-you ...   http://community.sephora.com/t5/Skincare-Stories/D aily-Skincare-what-are-you-using/m-p/2716765#M8681

Help! Need VitaZing moisturizer substitute!
I use the Origins Vitazing moisturizer every day instead of foundation - it gives me a perfect smoothing look without a 'foundation-y' look and it's low maintenance and doesn't make me break out. But Sephora has been out of the Vitazing for weeks now, and I'm running out!    Is there another lightly tinted moisturizer that would be a good substitute? Any suggestions? I've tried Laura Mercier's tinted moisturizer which I didn't care for (too sunscreen-y smell and too tinted), and Dr Jart's BB cream which looked fabulous but made me break out something awful.

Body Cleanse - Face Breakouts?
I have some pretty bad stomach issues & in between going to the doctor i"ve been told to try a detox. I never did because I'd always felt peculiar about them. Anyways - I finally decided to try it...& my face is HORRIBLE!!!   Is this normal? Does this have anything to even do with it? Honestly, it just  made me feel better just to blame it on something else rather than my skin just purely sucking!     I also heard a cleanse would help my skin because I would be getting rid of all the gross yuck inside! Is this true?   These are the products I'm using now (GENTLE! - I don't get it!)   -Kate Sommerville Goatmilk Cleanser  -Josie Maran - I switch back and forth between The Argan Oil, Face Butter, Day Moisturizer w/ SPF (mainly the SPF during the day & I'll add the oil if my face is pretty dry - it's been super dehydrated lately!)  Kate Sommerville Exfolicate Wash - I just bought this yesterday bc once this is over I know I'm gonna need. Gotta be prepared! lol     Bascailly - are these good products to be using during a time like this? Is there anything else I can do to help this issue?

Which primer?
I will be going to Hawaii for a month and I think that due to the humidity I will need a primer to ensure my makeup has some staying power. Right now I am using the NARS Radiant Tinted Moisturizer and it lasts for me without any primer until about 3-4pm when applied at 7 am. I am in between choosing three different primer options at the moment. Any thoughts on the following:   Sephora Collection Beauty Amplifier Ultra Smoothing Primer  http://www.sephora.com/beauty-amplifier-ultra-smoo thing-primer-P412147?skuId=1829274&icid2=products% ...   Cover FX Calming Primer  http://www.sephora.com/calming-primer-P388019?skuI d=1641281&icid2=products%20grid 388019   NARS Pore & Shine & Control Primer   http://www.sephora.com/pore-shine-control-primer-P 415963?skuId=1900117&icid2=products%20grid 415963   Or any other recommended primer?

Q. Skincare help!
Hello, I was wondering if anyone had some skincare suggestions. I am fairly new to the world of skincare and I really want to work towards more radiant skin. I have sensitive and combination skin. I also have some acne problems, but those aren't my main priority at the moment. I was looking into some of Sephora Collection's cleansers and was wondering how those are. Also, how is the Urban Decay Hot Springs Hydrating Gel and would it work alone as a moisturizer? If you have any suggestions or tips, I would really appreciate the help! Thank you!

Moisturize your skin and retain elasticity with Collagen and Olive Oil Soap!
Do you have UV damaged dry skin like me? As we get older, two components of our skin, collagen and elastin, degenerate, setting the stage for the appearance of wrinkles, creases, folds, and furrows. The breakdown of these components, accelerated by sun exposure and gravity, results in the sagging skin of old age.   I've started using a Anti Aging Collagen and Olive Oil Moisturizing Soap by Joesoef Skin Care for my every day routine. It softens and smoothes my skin minimizing lines and wrinkles. It's good for dry to Normal skin. I use the soap on my face and body. You can find their product online. Great moisturizer bar! <3

Eye Creams and Face Serums
Hi Beautiful Friends,   I am in my mid twenties and looking for a good eye cream. I have some very small fine lines starting on the corners of my eyes so any suggestions are greatly appreciated.   As for my skin it's normal to dry and I'm looking to try a vitamin c serum.

Best of the Best: What Are Your Favorite Natural Skincare Products?
Hey BeautyTalkers!    I have noticed a lot of chatter about natural skincare products in the beauty world. There is no perfect definition of 'natural skincare' but I am thinking of products that are labeled partially or 100% organic, sulfate-free, paraben-free, plant-based, or just made with simple ingredients.    There are a lot of reasons a product may be considered natural so without overcomplicating the definition I have a question for you all: What are your favorite natural skincare products?       Looking forward to reading your responses!

Wedding makeup for newby
I'm looking for makeup for my wedding in September that'll hold up in heat and sweat/tears/possible rain. (I know I'm asking a lot but I have no idea where to start. I am overwhelmed by so many choices at Sephora) I have very sensitive skin that breaks out with most of the covergirl, neutrogena, and Avon foundations.  I recently tried tarte rainforest of the sea foundation, and I love it. Hasn't broken me out yet! Will it cause flashback? I need a blush that won't disappear in 2 hours. What is a good one? Also would highlight be a bad idea since I'm oily?  This world of makeup is confusing. What is a good place to start with the start of it all being my wedding?
