Moisturizer and Primer
My skin has been really dry lately. Anyone know of a good face primer that smooths skin but also moisturizes?

Points deducted after getting a free GWP from Sephora inside JCP
Hello! I went to Sephora inside JCP today and purchased two items. I had a coupon for a free gift with purchase which I redeemed. The lady was extremely nice and asked me if I wanted to redeem any of my points, to which I replied no because none of the perks were interesting. After I got home in the evening I noticed that 100 points were missing from my account. I thought it was a glitch so I waited to see if it would be corrected. I checked again a couple minutes ago and the points are still missing. I'm very annoyed because this is not the first time this happens, if I knew the GWP would cost me 100 points I wouldn't have asked for it. I wrote about my experience in the past at the same Sephora and the fact that they charged me 200 points for two GWP that were free. At this point, I don't care about the points I just hope this doesn't happen again. The lady was very sweet and my experience was pleasant. I just wish Sephora inside JCP stops deducting points for GWP that clearly state FREE in the flyer. It went from free to free with purchase and now it's free with purchase but might cost you 100 points...   Thank you.

Tretinoin Skincare Routine?
Hello all!    My doctor has put me on Tretinoin .1% to help erase the annoying red marks that WILL NOT go away. I wouldn't say I have acne. I have minor breakouts when I have a reaction to something, hormonal breakouts, ya know the normal stuff. My problem was picking. So, I needed something serious to help with scars and those annoying bright red marks that force you to wear makeup. I've also been put on minocycline as well as a topical anti-bacteria cream.   My question is this :  What products are a must with these prescriptions? I mean my face is SO DRY. Which is expected but I've tried every lotion under the sun I feel like and nothing is really doing justice. I've even tried Josie Maron Aragon Oil! I keep reading Cerve Pm or the lotion in the tub, I've heard Sephora has a Ceramide moisturizer as well? I've also been told ot make sure I incorporate lots of antioxidants. Is there a product that has all of this? What should I be looking for?    AHH! HELP PLEASE!

Dry Skin - Skin Care Products
Hello! So I have very dry skin year round. I have dry patches by my nose and sometimes on my cheeks and chin. I have been using many different skin care products to make my skin happy and hydrated but can't seem to find the right products. I have been researching about the skin care line called First Aid Beauty and was wondering if those products would be good for me to use. Just wanted some opinions. Thanks!

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.

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?

Q. I need some advice on a new skin care regimen!
Hey guys, so I'm 27 with fair, sensitive, acne prone skin especially hormonal acne. I   am thinking of changing up my skin care routine, BUT I have been using Origins plantscription am with SPF 25 and the night a mins cream at night (both creams are oil free too) for probably 2-3 years now. I just feel like maybe I need something new for my skin, I have been looking at Lancome and some other products, but I just dont know what to go with? obviously I would like a day cream that has SPF in it and im all about anti-aging products it is never too early to start for that. So I need some advice what are the best products to maybe try out that are reasonable or maybe just keep my routine the way it is?

jawline bumps
I recently started using the Drunk Elephant Framboos Glycolic Night Serum, about a few weeks ago. And each time I use it, I notice I get these deep subsurface bumps on my jawline. itchy and pretty painful. Has anyone else experienced this with this product? I'm not sure if its an allergic reaction, or what. I figured my skin may be purging at first, but this does not hardly seem worth it for a product that was $100. Attaching a photo to show my areas of concern. No idea what it is!

Mid 30s looking for help with total skincare regimen
Hi! I'm in my mid-30s and am looking for help putting together a complete skincare regimen. I usually buy whatever is on sale at the drugstore, and generally only use a cleanser and moisturizer....but I'm ready to step up my game.   I've been checking into Rodan + Fields, but I'm not convinced it's right for me. I have combo skin and my main areas of concern are pores, redness/uneven skin, dullness and anti-aging. I'm completely overwhelmed by all of the options and have no idea what to buy and when to use each product.   Thanks for your help!

Blackheads/Sebaceous Filaments on Nose
I have had a problem with the blackheads on my nose for about 15 years. I have otherwise near-perfect skin which is slightly dehydrated, but have never suffered from acne or oiliness. The pore problem is isolated to just my nose, which is also rather large. What I am currently doing to get rid of them is using a pore strip after a steamy shower, then gently exfoliating my face and following up with a charcoal mud mask. This gets rid of them... BUT! I have to repeat the process within 3 days, and I am so tired of doing this. I have done so much research about the topic, and I know someone is bound to respond to this with "Don't use pore strips. They stretch out your pores and make them worse. If you stop using them, the blackheads will go away," but the blackheads are literally so bad that I cannot not be seen in public without clearing them first. The blackheads are 3-D, and stick out of my skin so I can literally feel them when I run my finger along my nose. (Did I mention I have a big nose? The blackheads are very noticeable!) Also, I have tried abstaining from using pore strips for a long time while being diligent with my normal skincare routine, and the blackheads did not just "go away." Below is a list of other products which I have tried to remedy the problem with:   Glamglow Supermud Clearing Treatment Caolion Premium Blackhead Steam Pore Pack Origins Clear Improvement Charcoal Mask Tony Moly Blackhead Out Oil Gel Clarisonic Cleansing System the entire line of Dr. Brandt "Pores no More"   I'm sure I am forgetting even more products which I have used, but NONE of these has helped my nose pores, and I am really open to any suggestions at this point. Has anyone with this problem found a method to fix it? What should I be doing differently? Any advice will help. Thank you so much!

Finding the culprit!
Hello everyone, I hope you could share some pointers to what just attacked my face!  I began using a new foundation, and after about two days of use, woke up to blackheads. I get a spot or two like clockwork, hormonal, sometimes even cysts, but I haven't had actual blackheads invade like this since I was twelve or so!  My question is, would the foundation be to blame, or is it more likely the  new sleep oil that I've been sampling for around a week?  i also have been experiencing itching although there is zero flaking, hives, or redness.   Id hate to do a used return if it is another product.  Everything else in my routine is 100% the same.   Thanks in advance!!

Best Self Tanner - Deep Color, Long Lasting, Non Streaky, Dries Quick, Less Transfer
Evaluating self tanners and I'd love advice from all of you!  There were some older threads that touched on self tanners, but I'm hoping to get some updates now that some new products are out.   I'm looking for:   - Deepest color (not orange of course, not toooo olive either - I'm looking at you Xen Tan); I'd like to be very tan looking (I am med to fair normally) - Last lasting as possible (Vita Liberata is great exaggerating with 2-3 weeks, but ya know) - Non streaky/not prone to splotichess as it fades (no chunking off) - Quick Drying as I hate being wet and sticky in the summer heat, and because I don't want it transferring to everything - No strong perfume scent (coconut OK, DHA smell is even OK) but no floral because gives me huge headache - I prefer mouse/foam, dry oil, even lotion over wipes at this point   Also - so has anyone used Tanceuticals darkest formula?  I read good reviews online but I'm worried they might be paid...   Here's what I've tried recently:   1. Vita Liberata Mouse - I like this, it meets most of my requirements, I just didn't fall in love -- this is my back up.  Some transfer of course.  I would get the deepest shade next time.  Does NOT last 2+ weeks as they claim.  Rosy bronze color with olive undertones.   2. Xen Tan - lotion, not horrible but a little too orange and olive mixed somehow, on my skin - just doesn't look quite natural.  Because this is a heavier lotion, it stays wet and tacky on my skin too long .  I have to use a lot to get good coverage. Just OK.   3. Vita Liberata Dry Oil - I like this, I am trialing it today for the first time.  My bottle is older but had never been opened, finally got around to trying it.  Application is a huge pain however, it comes out in TINY drops from the bottle, it's super thin liquidy and dribbles everywhere.  It does dry somewhat quicker.  The color seems rosy bronze.  I like the idea that it has shimmer although I can't actually see it on my body.   4. Tan Towels - nope. Streaky, orange, dried my skin out, barely tanned me, faded immediately, nope nope nope.   Love to hear your favs and least favs!   Thanks all...

Allergic Reaction?
This really sucks. I have somewhat sensitive skin but I've never had a reaction that looks like this and I fear that it will only get worse. It started yesterday in a couple of places and it didn't look bad. Today it got worse.   I'm including a couple photos because I don't know how to best describe it other than "it looks like a bunch of tiny red dots that look like micro pimples".     Below the photos I've included all new products used this week along with all the products I use regularly.   Pictures taken after cleansing and toner.       I've only used a few new things in the past week. Do I need to go farther back? And yes I know I should have spot tested and not introduced so many new things at once but it's done. Deluxe: FAB Face Cleanser (used on Thurs & Fri) Deluxe: Origins Original Skin Renewal Serum (used nightly, I had used a jar sample before and no reaction) Foils: The Face Shop Mango Seed Volume Butter For Face (2X, used Weds & Thurs) Foils: Biotherm Aquasource Everplump (used Fri night, I have used other Biotherm night cream foils and no reaction)   I'm going to go through my whole routine I guess... Every night: The Face Shop Calming Seed Cleanser (if not using other cleansers) The Face Shop Calming Seed Toner Origins Original Skin Renewal Serum A sheet mask The Body Shop Vit E Eye Cream, but I ran out so more recently it's been The Face Shop The Therapy Secret Made Anti Aging Eye Cream The Body Shop Tea Tree Blemish Fade Night Lotion and a cream but I ran out of my usual The Face Shop Calming Seed Cream   Additional products not used nightly: Weds: Laneige Mulberry Yogurt Repairing Mask The Face Shop Mango Seed Volume Butter for Face   Thurs: Boscia Exfoliating Peel Gel Murad T Zone Pore Refining Gel The Face Shop Mango Seed Volume Butter for Face   Fri: Glamglow Flashmud Origins Active Charcoal Mask Biotherm Aquasource Everplump Laneige Water Sleeping Mask

Hi! I've been using my Clarisonic for a couple of weeks now and I'm currently using it with a FAB cleanser.

Q. Skin Care.... HELP!!!
  Hello everyone! I keep having the hardest time trying to find a good skin care routine... and good skin care products. Im 19 and have never ever loved my skin.  I'd say I have norman to combo skin (more dry than oily) and I have times when I break out really bad then I don't (back and forth, back and forth), But I've always had at least 1 or more pimples on my face! Once one starts going away, another appears... It's frustrating! I also have terrible black heads on my nose and under my bottom lip area/chin.... and little pumps that aren't pimples but aren't black heads either? <- not really sure what they are exactly or what they're called?? But I always have those on my face also.   Im in need of products that will actually work for my skin!!!! Anyone have any thoughts on Dr.Brandt? Origins? Clinique? Clinical Advanced Skincare? OR any other brands that work for them??? Also, Products that work best?   ---Im a collage student at a makeup school (no, we don't learn anything about skincare..)  so I don't want to get something thats going to cost me 300 or more, I need something that is reasonable.  I know nothing about skincare and need tips!! Right now I am currently between products and trying a few things here and there for a few weeks at a time to see how my skin reacts to the products. I always wash my face before bed & in the morning.... with hot water & a cleanser, then wash it off and use cool water. Then I apply a serum & face cream. I also use a mask once every week.    TIPS PLEASE!!!  Thanks xo.
