Q. Moisturizer with SPF for oily skin...
I have oily/sensitive/acne prone skin and have been looking for a good moisturizer with SPF that won't irritate my skin. I recently tried Philosophy Renewed Hope with SPF 25 (only because I use the night cream and its amazing) but the SPF version is horrible for oily skin. What are the ones that work best for you?

Best Anti-aging Day Cream with SPF
Hi all I've been looking around for a good anti-aging daytime moisturizer with decent SPF. This is harder to find that I thought! I have pretty normal-ish skin, and am looking for a a non-greasy moisturizer to wear day time under makeup, or over serum (I'm 33, currently using SR Luna and Origins Nightamins at night). I'm looking for SPF 30 or above preferably. The only one I found so far was the Perfect World SPF 25 from Origins, and at first it worked well but after a few weeks it felt like my skin just got used to it and I wasn't seeing the benefits anymore. Any help would be greatly appreciated! Thanks xo

What mascaras are you buying for Mascara Madness?!
Mascara Madness is back at Nordstrom this Saturday the 23rd. Buy 2 get 1 free mascaras! The only "high end" mascara I have used is They're Real by Benefit, and I love it, but I wanna use this sale as an opportunity to try maybe some MAC or Clinique...really anything!

How to get rid of wrinkles and line?
I'm 32 years old and live in Mississauga. I have seen few lines coming and wrinkles under my eyes. I thought of using anti wrinkle cream to get rid of it. I feel very much depressed when everyone asks me if I'm in my 50's, so one of my friends asked me to go for the non-surgical procedure from mclean clinic in my locality ( http://www.mcleanclinic.com/nonsurgical-procedures /non-surgical/lines-wrinkles/ ). I have just heard about injectable fillers and botox treatment but don't know much about it. I would like to know if I should consider non-surgical procedure or buy good products that help to get rid of it. Also, I would love to get advice on great products or remedies.

Foundation/Found Color
OK I don't know if its just me or everyone is has issue find a foundation that not only feels great on their skin but also is the ACTUAL color OF THEIR SKIN! I live in a small town so it is extremely hard for me to find good high end foundations - we do have a Sears which has clinique, and Shoppers which has Nyx and smash box ext. But the problem comes with the undertones being too pink or too yellow! Benefits are ALL to yellow in their under tone, SmashBox is like pink on me, Clinique *which I own the Stay Matte in 08 Golden Neutral* isn't horrible in under tone but is a little to light for my skin! It also has been cracking and flaking through out the day and driving me nuts. I tried powders, creams, liquids, foams, sprays everything and anything to just try and get something that is natural looking but still hides everything i want.  Does anyone have any suggestions on what foundation they like, and how they found their color online? and how to match yourself as people who work in the beauty area's I'm in couldn't match me well at all!      Thanks xo !

Ultherapy and Laser Procedures
Hi there, has anyone had Ultherapy? Was it worth it? Did you experience noticeable results in terms of skin firmness and skin tightening? I'm also looking into C02 fractional laser resurfacing - it's my understanding that this procedure also helps restore fullness and stimulates and strengthens collagen but it also minimizes wrinkles and removes age spots.   My primary concern is restoring volume, fullness and tightening. Any advice? Thanks!

Hi all you beautiful ppl,   My mum's gonna visit me next month and I wanted to surprise her with a few skincare bits.

I'll share what I have in mind and I do need suggestions on what you think are non-negotiables, esp for that age range.   Skin type: Dry, dehydrated mature skin. Undereye wrinkles, no other wrinkles on face, but some firming action would be great . Neck needs some firming for sure.   I've put my list in spoilers.

Skincare Routine Suggestions - early 30's
Looking for suggestions please. I'm 32 and have never been diligent about skincare. I've always bought whatever face wash was on sale at Walmart and have used Nivea Soft as my moisturizer for years as it's the best drug store option I've found to date and works well for me. I've recently been using Eucerin for very dry skin and it works fine also.    My my skin is a little oily in the T zone with dry patches when I don't exfoliate (St. Ives scrub) and otherwise normal. It is only mildly sensitive on the cheeks and under eye area with a little redness on the cheeks. I get the occasional breakout about one week a month πŸ˜‘ but nothing major. (By "breakout" I mean a single pimple or maybe two that usually clears up in a few days with no spot treatment and I do get some blackheads around the nose and on the chin.)    Also, I have a tiny bit of uneven texture but I'm not sure what it is because I don't think they are pimples, just some small bumps. They aren't really noticeable unless you get real close and I'm not wearing makeup. I'd like to even out the texture and redness as well as some fine lines around the eyes and larger lines on my forehead from subconscious facial expressions. Lol I'd like to find an affordable oil or serum, face wash, exfoliant, and any other suggestions would be greatly appreciated!   Any ideas for that long, detailed list of wants? Thanks in advance!

What is the best foundation?
I would say i have very normal skin. I usually only break out on my forehead during my period and it is very mild. I am looking for a full coverage foundation because I have very red cheeks that i am not a fan of. A lot of foundations i try samples of either turn flakey, crease under my eyes, or get very oily on my forehead. which foundation would work well with my skin and which should i at least try.   I have tried Makeup Forever HD stick, Clinique chubby, and a sample packet of Marc Jacobs Re(marc)able full coverage.

Need new skin care routine for VERY sensitive skin (hopefully anti-aging too)
I'm hoping you guys can help me find a new skin care routine that will work for my super sensitive skin since most of my go-tos have been discontinued. I'm in my mid-30s but am usually mistaken for someone in their late teens or early twenties when I'm not dressed for work.  The biggest issue is that my skin is SUPER sensitive (as in trying to use Algenists gentle cleanser and oil at night started out OK but within a couple of hours was red enough and burning badly enough that I not only needed to wash everything off but it had to be treated with cortisone cream.  I don't know if the skin sensitivities are just aging or related to my worsening RA/Fibro & meds, but either way it makes it crazy hard to find products that work.  To give you an idea, here are products I've used in the past and ones that I've tried and that haven't worked.  What I'd really like is a new routine that can keep my skin in great shape and help me with the early signs of aging that I am just beginning to see around my eyes.  Overall my skin leans towards dry (worse in winter & middle of summer because of central heating/AC) with occasional breakouts.  I've read some really good things about Drunk Elephant being exceptional for sensitive skin and so wondered about that, but also about Sunday Riley or Nude or almost anything else anyone could suggest....   Products I currently use: Acure's 100% Argan oil (at this point I use this as my main moisturizer because I haven't found anything else) Korres Milk Cleanser (loved the old formula, find the new just a bit more drying and scented) Origins Modern Friction Bosica's Black mask   Things I've tried in the past and liked: Chanel's Beauty Initiale (face cream & eye cream) Caudalie Lip & Eye Serum (liked the consistency but didn't seem to do much) Various Prescriptives moisturizers (but they don't really have anything anti-aging) Prescriptive's Vibrant C eye cream (which I also liked a lot but I think is more of a camo solution then actually helping long term and since I found myself usually using it at night, didn't seem like a good fit).   So I am really looking for new routine but particularly cleanser, eye cream, day and/or night anti-aging treatment (could be part of an oil or moisturizer too), and moisturizer and any help would be greatly appreciated as well as feedback from fellow super-sensitive skin who've tried Drunk Elephant, Sunday Riley, Nude, etc.

In need of a skincare makeover...
Hey guys, I'm to the point where I am about to give up. My face is SUPER sensitive and gets irritated with the littlest things. Every single cleanser I have used has left my face feeling tight and stripped, but then my skin never wants to absorb the lotions that I try to put on. So I feel like my skin is combo, sensitive and dehydrated. This results in constant acne; never cystic acne, but just pimples all over. I'm a senior in HS and it is honestly embarrassing to go out in public. I was looking at the Belif Skincare line, but I'm hoping that someone can help me. Anything is welcome!

Flakey dry skin
Hello all!   I've been dealing with a dry flakey face since my late teens (about 5 years). It's centered on my T-zone and upper cheeks. I've tried all kinds of different moisturizers and natural oils, but nothing ever seems to be absorbed. It just seems to sit on my skin. I’ve made diet changes and have been making sure to stay hydrated, but my skin still stays persistently dry. I’m at my wits end, and nothing seems to be working. My skin is fairly sensitive- any suggestions for anything that might help me re-balance my skin’s natural oils? Thanks!
