I have been using the clarisonic for about 3 weeks and i have been breaking out a lot, i don't know if i should switch my cleanser because I'm using check and balances by origins. i don't know what to do? and what would you recommend for getting rid of red spots and dark spots from past acne.
Hi guys! I found an eye cream that I really liked for night time but half way through the jar I noticed after it soaked into my skin it would leave a sort of film or substance on my lashes and skin that would end up flaking off? What causes this? I've had this happen to me a couple times before with skin care products. This is the ONLY thing I put on my eyes at night btw.
I have keratosis pilaris on my arms and I've found something to take care of that. However, I have it on my forehead and have no idea how to get rid of it! My skin is relatively dry, acne-free with the occasional whitehead, and somewhat sensitive (it gets red easily). I worked for a company for 2 years that sells skincare so I have a decent amount of knowledge on skincare, but I still haven't found anything good for the KP on my face. Help please? I don't really have a price range. Thanks!
I'm only 20 and have noticed significant wrinkles around my eyes, mostly from smiling. There are so many products out there. What are your suggestions for wrinkles caused by smiling? I have tried samples of philosophy-time in a bottle for eyes, bobbi brown-hydrating eye cream, & alienist - eye repair. All have only made minor improvements.
I know lots of people love Algenist like me! Lol. Did everyone see that they have a new kit? I was shopping last night trying to find something that would make me Rouge for 2016 I was,thrilled to see the new Genious line kit! It has Genious cream, eye cream and the melting cleanser! I was so excited to see that! When I posted a thread a few months ago about Algenist so many people told how much they loved it! I just thought I would post this incase someone hadn't seen it yet! Also let's post about your favorite Algenist products or any skincare line! I have came to love Beauty Talk! Thanks for all the help and advice! Also on a different subject,, if anyone wants the lipstick you get this year for being Rouge just private message me and it yours! Lol. I'm sure I'm not using it ! Lol. I do wish they gave something for men that make Rouge, maybe soon they will,, thanks so much,,,,,,,,,, happy shopping,,,,,,,, Dan
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: cleansers CLINIQUE take the day off cleansing balm NUDE SKINCARE perfect cleanse omega cleansing jelly toners (acids & hydrating) FIRST AID BEAUTY facial radiance pads (AHA) AVEDA botanical kinetics exfoliant (BHA) CAUDALIE beauty elixir (moisture) MURAD essential-c toner (moisture) oils and serums CLARINS blue orchid facial oil VICHY aqualia thermal serum (serum for dehydration) moisturizers AVEDA botanical kinetics hydrating face lotion masks (i like to have an arsenal for different purposes) REN glycol lactic radiance renewal mask (resurfacing) OLE HENRIKSEN lemon strip flash peel (resurfacing: hardcore) PETER THOMAS ROTH cucumber mask (hydrating / soothing; great for summer) FIRST AID BEAUTY ultra repair instant oatmeal mask (hydrates /soothes; fantastic for winter) FIRST AID BEAUTY skin rescue purifying mask w/ red clay (deep cleaning) additionally, a couple products that may reach HG status soon, but need more time in my rotation: TATA HARPER replenishing nutrient complex (oil) TATCHA cleansing oil NUDE SKINCARE miracle mask (exfoliating / brightening) to be fair...i think this is a LOT to be considered truly HG. but you guys know i have a lot of steps in my daily routine, and these are tried-and-true loves of mine ! edited 2/1/15
Hi Everyone, So I need some advice. I'm looking to find a new skincare regimen that actually works. I've used things in the past that have either worked for a bit or have done absolutely nothing. A little bit about my skin. I'm in my mid 20's and have light acne, struggle with uneven texture and have some scarring. My skin is combination and is relatively sensitive. In and ideal world my skincare would clear my acne, even out my texture and lighten my scarring. If anybody has any product recommendations that would target my problems and that you think would work for me PLEASE let me know!! Thanks so much!
I have been trying a variety of exfoliators for years, but I break out whenever I use one (it seems). I know that dead skin is building up if I don't use anything, but I haven't found one that doesn't break me out (I have been trying gentler and gentler scrubs- right now, Philosophy Mircrodelivery). What can I do to remove dead skin?
I am 21 going on 22 in a few months. I have the occasional pimple, a few whiteheads a couple times a month, and some scarring. I want to know what kate Somerville products I should use for that and to help prevent aging. Everything from beginning to end! Thanks!
I got the Clinique air brushed concealer because i normally love their products because they are friendly to skin but i have started using it in places other than under my eyes recently (bridge of nose, between/above my brows, cupids bow all to do some highlighting with my foundation) and it made me break out like crazy well at least i think it's the culprit. But i'm wondering if anyone knows of a concealer i can use anywhere on my face that either helps fight acne or if you know of one that does not cause you to break out??
I'm 17, and growing up I was always told never to use any skincare product because they will actually make you look older when you're young. Not sure if that is actually true, but I guess I sort of believe it since it's what I've always been told. Well, I recently used some samples that I got from Murad and I loved them. They made my skin looking really fresh and healthy, and it took away the normal dullness I have. It's an anti aging product though, so I've been a bit iffy about purchasing the full size of it since I'm not concerned about aging right now. If I were to use this product all the time could it have a negative effect since it is not meant for my type of skin?
I have purchased Fresh's Seaberry Oil and Origins Make A Difference Moisturizer about a month ago. My face still feels like it is dry-ish. I am looking for a face oil, moisturizer and from my last post moisturizing cleanser which , thanks to some ladies, has given me an idea of what to check. I want the product to moisturize my skin during this winter, minimize pores, even out skintone and just make my skin look good. I am 23 years old and I don't have much acne other than some here and there occasionally.
Hello! First time posting, but I am going on vacation to the Caribbean at the beginning of March and was wondering what everyone would recommend for sunscreen (both body and face!) given the latest or upcoming products. I heard a whisper about the Sun Safety Kit Sephora released last year being awesome, but fear it will not come out in time. Thanks for any suggestions! I have pretty normal skin (rarely breakout, not dry nor oily) but definitely do not want a product that'll cause problems!
So I was looking on the Foreo website about their products, and stumbled upon their Luxe and Platinum versions...for $6,500 and $8,800, respectively!!! I couldn't believe it! What is the most ridiculous beauty product you have seen? EDIT: should say FOREO..maybe I'm in a golfing mood! lol
I already use the Ole Henriksen The Truth serum, but I have lots of hormonal acne scarring on my chin, and want to try the Murad Post Acne-Spot Lightening Gel. Would I be able to use them both at night?
I am currently looking for a new skincare routine for my dry skin and have no idea where to start. I currently use the hydrating toner, morning and night cream from the Body Shop but I feel like my makeup is not going on well at all and I can definitely feel the dryness creeping its way through! I do need an under eye cream and any other skincare recommendations you may have to create a hydrated flawless complection! Thank you!
My total hearts is near the number of the beast…YIKES Please help me pass it thru without seeing that 'triple digit' number next to my hearts. I know it might not mean anything to others but to me, this number means a lot. Thank you.
I started using Ole Henrikson's vitamin C Truth serum about 2 months ago, and I love it. I just ordered the Whole Truth kit (moisturizer and eye cream plus the serum) as well. My skin has been pretty dry this winter (combo skin, particularly dry and acne prone chin and jawline) so I'm thinking about adding a night cream and/or CC cream to my regime. Should I use products with vitamin C in them, or is there such a thing as "too much"?
So I have been interested in the glam glow super cleanse fashwash. The problem is, I have the foreo Luna mini and it says not to use exfoliating washes with it because it can wear down the bristles.... Is the glam glow face wash exfoliating, or more of just a mud with no extra exfoliating bits? Any advice would be wonderful!!!!!
Alright so since it is winter, my skin is more dry. I used Peter Thomas Roth Rose cleanser but I forgot my nearly empty bottle at a hotel. I also recently purchased the Fresh Seaberry Oil, Origins Make A Difference Moisturizer. But I still feel like my face is dry. I need a moisturizing cleanser. I am not usually dry but only in winter. Any recommendations?
Hi all, I am looking for suggestions for a good sunscreen that won't cause my face to squirt oil and break out. I've tried all of the neutrogena, ombrelle, and clinique ones but they all made my face very oily and shiny and some caused breakouts. I'm hoping to find a nice light sunscreen that I can put makeup on top of Thanks for your help!
Hi all! I'm starting "Accutane" (Absorbica to be exact) on Saturday. I've watched every youtube video and blog that there is out there and have done lengthy research (through BT also). I would like some updated product suggestions (hair and skin), I trust BT more than any other place, on product experience and advice. Any advice, on products or otherwise, would be greatly appreciated. Thanks
Suffer an accident 2weeks before Christmas & I am left with 3 slightly indented scars on my face , 1 on my left center top lip. When I ask about treating scars all doc said ""give it 2-4 months its should heal on it own if you keep it clean. See plastic surgeon 6 months later if it bothers me." That is the last thing I want to hear cuz I don't believe in it cuz I have seen what happened to my friends with careless surgeons. Before all this happened to me I was getting serious on wanting to improve uneven texture on my skin. I had got a smaple of Dr.Dennis gross ferulic acid + retinol brightening solution loved how it improve my skin so I order online my 1st original formula 14day kit 2days before I got hurt. I had been doing everything in my power not to return it. 6 1/2 weeks since it happened, my kit just sits there since I've been healing. & during healing process been using gentle scrubs & cleanser, also la mer concentrate (thank u pam) to help treat & heal my scars. Seems my scars are almost done forming, so I started to use my solution again, but is the peel gentle enough for evening out injury scars? I am trying everything in my power to see what might help me so I can prevent plastic surgery.
I have been having some acne troubles and I went ahead and bought the Illumask. It was on sale at Target for $25, but I had a $5 coupon for Ulta and some points, so i went there- $30-$5= $25, plus a free travel case (bc I def needed that, right?). I decided to try it tonight while watching the Ravens. My family had a great laugh about it, so hopefully they're past it, but probably not... For those of you curious if it works, I will try to keep up documenting my 30 day journey. I even took a few pics, although I'm soooo not comfortable showing my face in its current state. My face has about 5 blemishes right now, chin/mouth area, two are cystic and hurt, although better than yesterday for sure. If I forget details or you have questions, feel free to ask. I just got finished using it. Directions are pretty simple: start with a clean face, put mask on like a pair of sunglasses, push button. It lights up right away, and goes off after 15 minutes on its own. The counter starts at 30, and counts down 1 each time you turn it on. There is no such thing as a pause , if you stop and start, it will deduct a use from the counter. So 30 uses, 30 days, less than a dollar a day. I don't know if it works, but what the heck...if it were $100, I'd say no until someone else tried it first, but $25 is worth it, My first impression is yea right, but I'm hopeful. Fifteen minutes went by pretty quickly. I will say, there is virtually no line of vision- I can only see if the room is lit up, and only in front of me. Forget walking down the steps or even typing...just takes too much effort. Day 1: Begin. 5 blemishes- 3 on day 2 of healing. Day 2: 5 blemishes, sorta dried out, two still raised and red, although not painful. Day 3: So far, healing nicely. No more pain, but now I'm fighting the dryness. I've had to moisturize throughout the day b/c layers of skin is starting to peel, which I'll trade for pain and red. The two cystic are raised but have subsided a little. Day 4: Last night- my face was dry. I used the mask and did my skincare routine. The bumps are still there. They'll be around for a while. Nothing new coming in behind it, which is a good sign. Day 5-10: Dry around the chin/mouth area, but no new spots to write about. YAY! Day 20: All is clear- dryness has subsided significantly. Just trying to reduce redness now.
I really want to get one of these to add to my daily routine. I just don't know which one to get. The Foreo Luna is obviously more money up front, but you have to buy replacement heads for the Clarisonic. So in the end the Clarisonic will cost more. Honestly with price aside which one do you ladies like more?
