Homemade Toners?
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?

Omorovicza - worth it?
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.

Dark/Sun spots on body
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?

SKINCARE HGs !
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

pores
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'

The Non Joys of Pregnancy.
   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?

Clairsonic Mia 3 vs Mia 2
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!

Q. Eye Cream for Dry Eyes Only!
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!

Skin Care Regimen for oily, post-acne skin?
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!

Anti Wrinkle/Anti Acne

Q. eye-specific sunscreen?
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.

Foundation for Dry Skin that doesn't settle in fine lines.
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.

Clay mask for dry skin types?
  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!

Need skincare products/routine for dry sensitive skin
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.

Advice on Shade Please
  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!

Have Some Questions "Real Quick Plse" a/b theBalm
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.
