I've been reading up a lot about toners and DIY cucumber / green tea toners. I just wanted to hear some personal reviews if anyone's tried it/what they think/ effectiveness. They sound really nice to be. It's all natural/cheap. It does go bad after a few days so I read that refrigerating it would not only feel refreshing on the face but last a little bit longer. But even tossing it isn't a big deal since all the ingredients are really cheap to come by. Also if substituting a lemon for a lime would be okay?
I've been using an Eminence face wash for quite some time, but my current bottle is almost empty - so I'm thinking about trying something else. Does anyone have any thoughts on Omorovicza's Cleansing Foam? I know the line gets rave reviews in some circles, but I'm wondering if the Cleansing Foam is worth the $75 (Canadian). I'd love to know your experiences! Thank you.
So I've started noticing dark spots on my body (i.e abs,legs) and I'm a bit concerned and unsure how to correct this problem? There seems to be a plethora of items to treat this concern for the face but does anyone have any recommendations for something formulated for the rest of the body?
i've seen this type of question asked more generally, but i wanted to ask it specific to skincare. not only is it interesting to see what has really worked for people, but it'll maybe highlight some products others are interested in trying ! so: what are specific products that would cause you to hyperventilate were you to run out ? mine currently are: CLINIQUE take the day off cleansing balm FIRST AID BEAUTY facial radiance pads CAUDALIE beauty elixir AVEDA botanical kinetics hydrating face lotion i have steps that i would never skip that are not represented in the above list, but the products i use for those steps tend to be more interchangeable. additionally, a couple products that may reach HG status soon, but need a bit more time in my rotation: FIRST AID BEAUTY skin rescue purifying mask w/ red clay CLARINS blue orchid facial oil
I generally have oily skin. I also have open pores and they get clogged with sebum. I have tried multiple cleansers and they just don't seem to be able to clean out my pores. The only way is when i take a "hot shower" and remove it gently with my finger scraping my skin. I know I shouldn't be doing this but when i put on powder or blush you can see the residue from the clogged pores. I have tried mary kay; 2 different types of cleansers, boscia; 2 different types; etc... I need help. Please advise Thank you'
Its such a blessing to see that positive symbol on your test when you've been trying to conceive. For weeks you glow - mostly due to "morning" (All-day) sickness. Now with the lovely changes my skins seems to have jumped back to the land of a teenager. SPOTS everywhere. On my chest and face and gosh does it make you feel un attractive. I had terrible acne in high school and happily in my early twenties this calmed down. I tried using clean and clear which seemed to aggravate the situation to a while new level. I don't enjoy caking on makeup but lately it helps me just get out the door - - Any suggestions on getting my skin back to some normality?
Hi Ladies, I need some help in deciding with Clairsonic to get. I've narrowed it down to either the Mia 2 or 3 and I can't seem to decide between the two. I'm really liking the holiday sets that are out. A little about me: I have normal/combo skin, not acne prone or anything. My t-zone can get a little oily. I've been using Clinique's 3 Step # 2 for the past 10 years or so and I've been happy with it, but I think its time to add some deeper cleaning/exfoliating. Is the Mia 3 with the Cashmere Brush Head worth the extra $50? The Mia 2 Hydra Cleanse Set comes with 2 brush heads - is that a better buy? I'm in Canada, so the prices I've noted are higher than the US prices. $230 Mia 3 Holiday Gift Set Comes with: - White Mia 3/Aria - Clarisonic Lux Cashmere Cleanse Brush Head - Drying stand - USB Enabled Universal Voltage pLink® Charger - 1 oz Clarisonic Gentle Hydro Cleanser - 0.1 oz Amorepacific Moisture Bound Rejuvenating Eye Treatment Gel - 0.5 oz Caudalie Premier Cru The Cream - 0.23 oz Algenist Advanced Anti-Aging Repairing Oil - 5 Dr. Dennis Gross Skincare™ Alpha Beta® Peels, Original Formula $180 Mia 2 Glow Holiday Set: - Joy Mia 2 - Sensitive Brush Head - Protective Travel Case - Universal Voltage pLink® Charger - 3 oz Philosophy® Purity Made Simple Cleanser - 0.5 oz Ole Henriksen Truth Serum® Collagen Booster - 0.17 Bliss® Triple Oxygen® ex-'glow'-sion! Vitabead-infused moisture cream - 4 Kate Somerville® Somerville360® Face Self Tanning Pad $180 Mia 2 Winter Hydration Set: - Mia2™ Cleansing Brush - 0.5 oz GLAMGLOW THIRSTYMUD™ Hydrating Treatment - 2.0 oz First Aid Beauty Ultra Repair Cream - 5 oz Boscia Purifying Cleansing Gel - International pLink Charger for worldwide use $180 Mia 2 Hydra Cleanse Set - Mia2™ Sonic Skin Cleansing Brush in Lavender - Luxe Contour Brush Head - Satin Precision - Luxe Facial Brush Head - Cashmere Cleanse - 6 oz Gentle Hydro Cleanser - International pLink Charger for worldwide use - Protective travel case I appreciate any help and opinions.

I am 23 years old, I have kind combination skin, oily/dry/blackheads. I need to start a skin regiment, I'm just not sure what steps to take or what products to use, I've used some origins and some Clinique and also all natural organic things. My main issue is the blackheads
Im 16 and have mildly sensitive skin. My skin is quite difficult to explain because it is acne/oily but it is also quite dehydrated because i disrupted the moister barrier from using products with harsh chemicals. I was hoping that someone could recommend a cleanser, toner, moisturizer and spot treatment for me. I also have a Clarisonic and prefer products that are natural and I do not want products that have harsh chemicals. Thank you so much
Recently I received a PM from Sephora thanking me for my participation on BT and offering to send me a free full sized gift. Today I received a full size NUDE Brightening Fizzy Powder Wash. http://www.sephora.com/product/productDetail.jsp?k eyword=nude%20brightening%20fizzy&skuId=1629286&pr ... The back says: This effervescent powder wash brightens skin for a glowing complexion with multiple sources of Vitamin C. Powerful enzymes work together with all-natural rose hip and vanilla seeds for skin-clearing exfoliation, eliminating dull skin and impurities. With omega-rich acai berry, Inca gold and virgin coconut oils, this treatment exfoliator smooths and softens while refining skin. Super pumped to try it tonight!
I am looking for an eye cream to help with dryness around my eyes. My skin around my eyes is so dry that the outside corners crack a bit and I sometimes develop dry skin under my eye. Many of the eye creams I have tried sting the dried out skin and don't moisturize enough. Any suggestions??? I don't have wrinkles, lines, bags, and I am not looking for a product to prevent them; just drying to get rid of the dryness! Thanks in advance for everyone's help!
What are a few awesome products from Sephora for a complete skin care regimen to help someone with post-acne scars/discoloration or dark spots/oily skin in order to brighten up and even out the skin's tone and texture? I don't get acne anytime during the month EXCEPT when it's "that time" of the month, so that is not my main concern. It's more about the acne I had when I was younger and the discoloration and unevenness it has left on my skin. Just looking for something to brighten, even out, and smooth my skin out! I'm thinking exfoliator, peel, moisturizer, cleanser? Thoughts? Thank you!
I'm looking for advice on preventing wrinkles, while not causing more acne. I have oily/combination skin and get acne frequently (3-5 pimples per week), but am starting to develop slight wrinkles on my forehead (I know, there are worse things happening in the world!). I would like to begin treating/preventing wrinkles before they advance, but assume most aging products are for women with dry, mature skin. Can anyone recommend products/regimens for wrinkle prevention on acne-prone skin? Thank you in advance
I've seen quite a few sunscreens specially formulated for the eye area and I'm a bit confused by it. During the day I presently use the MD SolarScience Mineral Creme SPF 50 and go around the eye area (of course not right up too close) and at night I apply my moisturizer to keep the area hydrated. Do I really need an entirely separate eye spf?
I love her makeup she by far has some of the best products available and doesnt get the recognition she deserves I'am a huge mally beauty fan lipstick , concealer , eyeshadow and all highly recommend her products to everyone here you can thank me later.
I have very dry skin and every cream or liquid foundation I use seems to settle into my fine lines around my mouth and nose. The most recent foundations I used were Tarte Maracuja Mircale foundation and Nars Radiant Cream foundation. I moisturize in the morning and at night and my foundation will still settling into my fine lines and make me look older. I would love recommendations of foundations for dry skin. Also I need a fuller coverage foundation because I have rosacea that needs coverage. Thanks!
I have dry combination skin type that is very very acne prone. I get redness every now and then, but with the right products, I usually don't.. but breakouts are something I tend to not be able to control I use clarisonic, philosophy and sulwhasoo peels for exfoliating about 2 times a week, but I feel like its not enough to deep clean for pores especially in the summer. I have in the past used Fresh umbrian clay and PTR sulfur mask from what I can remember on top of my head. I loved the umbrian clay mask, but found it to be very dehydrating.. PTR sulfur mask on the other hand barely did anything.. oh and Glam glow was way too irritating for my skin.. can anyone please recommend a good clay mask that I can use for the purpose of drawing out impurities and keeping my skin a bit more clear? thank you in advance!
I am looking for some skin care products to help with my dry, sensitive skin (I have eczema). I am also prone to blocked pores if the formula is to thick and doesn't absorb well. I have my daytime moisturizer with SPF squared away, so this would be more for nighttime/weekend use. I tried the High Potency Night-A-Mins™ Mineral-Enriched Renewal and it didn't work for me. My skin never got moisturized, but would end up greasy and has started breaking out. Any advice is greatly appreciated!
Sorry pic's are so big! Wanted you to be able to see the shades (names would have helped)! Sorry. Anywho, I was wondering since I do have dry skin ( did look at MJ's Gel Foundation) that's BLAH being I had to stay out of the sun all Summer due to Laser , I got interested. I have looked at it for around 2 weeks but haven't really, really thought on it till now (when I was gonna post a photo.... negative whooo)! So, I am not sure if these are in order b/c I got sidetracked but I was thinking maybe shades: 1,2, or 4. I have blue veins / cool tones ( and some neutral too... or so I have been told). What shade do you think would be best? Thanks in Advance! I can go back & get the shade names if need be, I thought I had copied to paste but nope!
Every time I pluck the odd hair on my chin or on my eyebrows I get a pimple . It's so upsetting, I've tried applying alcohol to my skin afterwards but my skin is so sensitive I have to wash it off before it starts to burn. Does anyone have any solutions to this problem?
Hey Guy's & Doll's, I have a question about a cpl of theBalm face washes. I bought the radiance pad's from FAB like suggested but thought I could maybe add a face wash for my PORE CRISIS ! Can anyone PLEASE tell me real quick which 1 would be the best for my Clogged Pores on Nose & in General : 1. Rose Face Cleanser - Normal to Dry Skin 2. Lavender Foaming Face Cleanser - All skin types 3. Coconut Milk Cleansing Face Cream - Norm. to dry 4. Rose Face Cleanser - Normal to Combination Skin #1 & #4 are the same for targeted treatments : Rose Face Cleanser for normal to combination skin will gently exfoliate the skin with glycolic and alpha hydroxy acids, while removing makeup and impurities. In addition to the numerous well known benefits of the glycolic and alpha hydroxy acids, the gel texture of this cleanser leaves the pores feeling refreshed and tight . #2 Lavender Foaming Facial Cleanser is effective and non-drying. Soy proteins nourish by providing depleted skin with a rich source of mineral salts, amino acids and peptides #3 TimeBalm Coconut Milk Face Cleansing Cream gently removes dirt and makeup that is trapped in the pores, without stripping your skin of its natural nutrients and moisture. Lactic acid works to polish the dull outer layers of the skin.
