Hey! I have oily, acne (I have moderate to severe acne) prone skin and I have quite a bit of scarring. I'm looking for a cleanser that'll help me. (I just bought the Foreo Luna, so I'd prefer recommendations compatible with it). I'm out of ideas, to be honest. I tried the Murad cleanser for a few months but it didn't seem to help :/ If y'all could recommend some cleansers/toners, I'd be grateful. Thanks!
I'm looking for some advice on skincare for my 12 year old son. His skin is very oily and he's starting to get some pimples. I really want to start him off right and not use something super harsh on his skin. I'm also looking for simple so he will use it! Lol Thanks so much in advance!
Up until 3 months ago I had ideal skin. A zit once and a while but that was it. But then I broke out with dermatitis and its been a long recovery. As it stands I have a fine forehead and cheeks, my chin area and AROUND my nose like the bottom where the nostrils are is very dry and keep breaking out and it feels like a vicious cycle. Normally I have a somewhat oily forehead, and chin. Then a very oily nose. And the rest dry. So with that. I am wondering what do you think would be best for me? Mia? Mia 2? Mia 3? The Olay brand of this kind of thing? Or one of the Clinique brands of this? Any advice would be great. Thank you!
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?
My boyfriend would like a nice hair styling product for Christmas. He has short hair that is on the thicker side and likes something with flexible hold. He doesn't want anything greasy or that will transfer down to his face and make his forhead and face look greasy. He doesn't do much with his hair. Sometimes he flips up the front. He really just wants something that will make his hair look neat and polished but not greasy and not like it's glued down like firm gels or other products. Does anyone have any suggestions?
Hello! Thanks so much for the awesome customer support! you guys are really on top of stuff and it is truly amazing !! sorry for asking-- just made 2 more purchases online and was wondering if I can get it updated on my canadian points..? Also was wondering, how far away am I for hitting VIB or Rouge status again..? Im trying to keep track of my points and from what I calculated I should be VIB for (2015) but it still says I'm a Beauty Insider..? Just wondering how many points do I need to get my VIB status back for 2016..? Thanks so much !
What are your holy grail products? I use hydrocortizone cream for spot itch reduction, and Aveeno, but it seems the relief is only temporary I also use a humidifier, which helps a bit, but I have these patches of raised rashes (sorry for TMI or grossness) and they are unsightly and itch like crazy. I'm open to home remedies, new products, high end products, weird products, voodoo, anything.
Okay, is it just me or has anyone else been unable to access their love list lately? If I click on the ❤, it takes me to the mobile page and I'm signed out. Sign in, but still no go. If I go to my basket it shows the mobile basket, where you can't view samples or love list like normal. Is it my tablet? Been trying over and over, even if sign out and all Sephora tabs closed. Any ideas? So frustrating.
i have pretty normal skin not allergic to anything not oily not dry no acne and pretty much great skin . lately i feel like its been dull cause i dont drink so much water or take vitamins so i was wondering how great would the boscia tsubaki oil be ? i used a sample and liked it but want to know if its really effective in the long run and if there might be anything better?
I've made a post about this before and I was advised that the little skin-coloured bumps on my skin are actually clogged pores. It looks even WORSE when I wear foundation (wearing MUFE HD foundation in the pic). So I'm doing everything I'm supposed to do... (I think). I'm drinking lots of water everyday, I'm moisturizing, I'm exfoliating, I bought a clarisonic to cleanse-- but the bumps are still there. I think they might have gotten worse actually. Here are the products I use: Boscia Makeup-breakup Oil cleanser, Purity Made Simple cleanser with the Clarisonic, Peter Thomas Roth exfoliating peel gel (twice-a-week). I use Clinique moisture surge or dramatically different lotion for my very dry skin. Is there another product I should be buying? I need help
After i get out of the shower i have SUPER dry skin. I use neutrogena face wash i the shower, which helps with acne/breakouts. I haven't found a moisutrizer that works. I put nothing on my face and two hours later my skin is super oily. Not sure what i should be using for a moisturizer or facewash. Before having kids about 2 years ago i use to use marykay and it seemed to help.
Hi,i am in my 30s .I have some chicken pox marks all over my face but the marks in forehead are more visible .Few months back two lines of wrinkles are visible on my forehead too.I have a dry skin . can you suggest some skin care regime with good products for sensitive skin to fade the marks/less visible.
I'm looking for a very basic moisturizer that is cruelty free. I need something very basic as I am on Retin-A micro and Benzaclyn an don't want any additional retinols, etc. My dermatologist gave me samples of cetaphil, but I prefer more natural and cruelty free. Any recommendations? I do use other Dr. Dennis Gross products, but I'm concerned that the chelating complex moisturizer will interfere with my acne medications.
With the cold, winter months quickly approaching I am looking to swap out some of my current skincare products for ones that will provide more moisture. I am currently using Clinique Moisture Surge as a nighttime moisturizer, but am looking to swap it out for a thicker, creamier moisturizer. What would you recommend? I would also like some suggestions for hydrating masks, facial oils, and/or facial mists to help keep my skin hydrated. Thank you in advance!
Recently I tried different bad exfoliators from different brands. One of them was the Laura Mercier Facial Scrub but after using it, I still had some dead skin cells which spoiled my makeup... I also used the St. Ives Apricot Scrub and it was absolutely horrible! This thing broke me out! My face became red because this stuff is too harsh, abrasive and scratchy and actually caused me pain! What is your worse exfoliator experience and which one do you use now?
I've struggled and still struggle with hormonal/cystic acne that didn't start until I was around 20-21. I'm currently looking for suggestions on a product that could help control my hormonal acne, but above anything else help get rid of my acne scars! Some of my scars are dark and some are sort of red. I also have some hyper pigmentation and slightly dry skin. I'm so tired of having an uneven skin tone and I just want nice smooth skin! Haha any suggestions would be great!!
I'm incredibly curious about this serum (I love that its vegan and uses natural derivatives) and I was wondering if you guys could tell me your experience with it if you've tried it or your opinion on it. It appears to be a fairly new brand/product and while I have checked out the product's reviews I was hoping to start more of a conversation about it. I have sensitive, acne prone skin and I am fairly pale so I was hoping this product would help clear blemishes as well as lighten some hyper pigmentation. Any thoughts?
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, i...got 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 ?
