Hello friends! I am always curious to know what people's skincare regimes are; how can a skincare fanatic not want to see what other people are using! My skin is very strange, it is combination (very) oily, dehydrated, and acne prone along with reactive to various products. Without further ado, here is my current skincare routine! Morning: Cleanse - Fresh Soy Face Cleanser Tone - FAB Facial Radiance Pads Hydratation Tone - 100% Pure Rose Water Serum - Peter Thomas Roth Viz 1000 Hydrating Serum Moisturize - Fresh Rose Hydrating Gel Eye Cream - Fresh Lotus Eye Gel Night: Cleanse - Fresh Soy Face Cleanser Tone - FAB Facial Radiance Pads Hydratation Tone - 100% Pure Rose Water Treat - Kielhs Midnight Recovery Concentrate ** My nose is very breakout prone, so I do not apply any product to it during the day and use a prescription topical acne medication on it every night to stop the clogged pores ** Lips - Nuxe Reve de Miel Lip Balm Specific Days SUNDAY Shave Exfoliate - Clinique Face Scrub (Mens line) TUESDAY Glamglow Supermud Mask WEDNESDAY Shave SATURDAY Glamglow Powermud Mask And there you have it! My wonderful, yet crazy, skincare regime! I am EXTREMELY interested in seeing what your skincare regime is as I am new to the Advice Talks! I definitely look forward to seeing the different combinations of products and also looking to see what other products I could potentially use! I love Skincare! It's the best! Michael, xo
Dear All, Since I turned 40 I have been hyper sensitive about my uneven and oftentimes dull skin tone. As I have 6 children (who all bring their friends inside) + an 18 year old au pair (with perfect youthful skin), I can no longer bear to reveal my bare facial skin in the house. I have tried several Loreal options, but none seem to have the coverage/glow giving properties I desire (they do however work miracles for my teenage daughters). I've also tried Clinique's CC cream, but my under eyes still look dark, which is incredibly ageing; similar story with Estee Lauder's CC Cream. I love Estee Lauders Double Wear All Day Glow BB Cream for going out in the warmer months, but would ideally like something better priced for the house ... Any ideas? Do any of you wear a base in the house?
I recently moved to TN from MN, and the humidity is seriously clogging my pores and causing me to breakout on my chest and causing white and blackheads around my nose and chin. Is there any products or remedies I should try to clear this up?
My skin is extremely oily.. I have been wearing NARS SHeer glow foundation & I realized it was for dry skin.. (I was in a rush when I ordered) my face is FAR from dry & it's been breaking out horribly since wearing the sheer glow.i don't know a lot about foundations, I used Clinique powder only for years.. I'm 20. I really need some advice on the best foundation (long wearing) and concealer. Also facial wash suggestions would be great too!! Thanks so much!! -sincerely, someone who knows nothing about makeup!!
For as long as I can remember I've had puffy under eyes. I don't really have issues with dark circles as much as general puffiness. I know it doesn't help that I tend to pound water right before I go to sleep - something I've been doing since I was very little. So I'm willing to accept what that creates but would love any ideas or products that can quickly eliminate under eye puffiness and tighten that skin back up.
So i wear Lancome's dual finish foundation powder in matte honey III and the color is literally perfect, but... i really wanted to try the makeup forever duo mat powder because ive heard its long wearing and great for oily skin! What color should i be wearing by the color IQ if the lancome powder matches perfectly? Anyone have and great long wearing powder foundations as well? Thanks guys; Im also a guy so the more natural the better too!
hi there! I have a big time skincare regime question. I have oily to combination skin. VERY sensitive and very acne prone. I do not have a lot of acne anymore, but any little irritation of a new skincare or makeup product will cause me to breakout. I also have some dark spots and light acne scarring from the past. I am currently using "exuviance" facewash and night cream. Can anyone recommend a morning and night time routine with me including products that will help to keep my skin clear and help diminish fine lines, and dark spots/scarring? I would greatly appreciate it!
Hi guys! My mom loves natural/organic products wether it be face cleanser, face cream. She doesn't wear makeup. Do you guys have any recommendations?? While searching online she found three products that she wanted me to get her for her birthday. I'll only get one right now though. Her picks are: 1. Ole Henriksen African red tea foaming cleanser 2. Ole Henriksen truth serum vitamin C collagen booster 3. Orgins A perfect world Which one is the best to get her? Also if you have any suggestions lemme know! Thanks!!
I don't know what to do with my skin. I'm currently using: - PERRICONE Hypoallergenic Gentle Cleanser - Eucerin Soothing Repair Creme on my eczema - ORIGINS Charcoal Mask once or twice a month - ORIGINS Zero Oil™ Lotion on oily areas I need some help. I'm sick of this. I can't wear makeup because it either flakes (dry areas) or just clumps or melts off (oily areas). I've never found a foundation that has covered the redness either. What can I do? Anyone else have this or a similar issue? (PS. I can NOT use any Milk Cleansers or anything like that containing milk.)
I have oily skin and I've used so many products for my face such as the garnier bb cream, benefit oxygen wow foundation, laura mercier tinted moustrizer, mac mineral moisture and maybelline dream mousse. So far, I liked the tinted moisturizer the best, but I want to try something new. I've never tried a powder, but I've heard the tarte loose powder is good. Is anyone willing to give me other examples, preferably a foundation, tinted moisturzer, bb or cc cream that is oil free, very natural and not too expensive?
I know that Sephora doesn't sell Illamasqua anymore, Nordstrom never has, and now I see that it is no longer on Bloomingdales website. Does anyone know where Illamasqua can be found in the States? I am definitely not paying international shipping from the UK.
I have always wondered what is the difference (other than price) between the Lancome anti-aging collections, e.g. Renergie, High Resolution, Genifique and Absolue? Which one should you use when you're in your 20's, 30's? I am 22 and looking for a Lancome eye cream with SPF that will protect against appearance of first fine lines.
So I was looking online and came across a few articles on Manuka Honey and how it's supposed to be really great for your skin. I was wondering if anyone has actually tried using it whether as a spot treatment, mask or face wash. And if so, how did it work for you? I bought some online and I'm still waiting for it to arrive but I was just curious if others have tried this.
Hello! I have a question for those of you who have been to a dermatologist. Do they have some sort of skincare ingredient testing? For example, would they be able to say, You're allergic to Titanium Dioxide and Niacinamide. Or would they just say, You have sensitive skin. Avoid x, y and z. It seems like everything I try, even if the product says it's for sensitive skin, I break out in red spots/bumps which I assume are from allergic irritation. When I stop using the product, the bumps go away. The two products that I've been trying to look for are a moisturizer with SPF higher than 15 and something to lessen post acne marks. It has not been a simple task! Any insight or info would be so appreciated! Thanks.
I have a few small broken capillaries/spider veins on my face, which I blame mostly because of daily exfoliation with my Clarisonic. I've pretty much stopped using the Clarisonic for 2 months now, but I was wondering if there's anything else I can be doing to help get rid of or minimize them without using concealer or laser. Thanks!
A month ago I posted about how I'm searching for new skincare products since basically all of mine either had or were about to run out. The suggestions were SUPER helpful, and I've implemented some of them since then. I was able to pick up a small tube of my regular moisturizer (Clinique Dramatically Different Gel) so I could continue with that and just focus on finding a new cleanser. I'm still using the Korres Wild Rose at night. No toner since it's all gone. And I'm only using my Clarisonic twice a week now, and the Korres Pomegranate scrub once a week. (And I've been using these for a while now.) As for cleanser, I've been using some different samples lately (deluxe, so I could use them for a longer period of time - Ren Evercalm Gentle Cleansing Milk, Origins Checks and Balances, and now Philosophy Purity Made Simple.) My skin doesn't feel "off" when cleaning - it feels fresh? It feels much better with moisturizer, but it isn't uncomfortable if I don't use any (and that only happens very rarely.) I've been paying more attention to my skin lately and I'm wondering if maybe it ISN'T oily, after all?! I'm really only getting oily on my forehead & nose lately. And even then it isn't too bad. My cheeks don't really get oily. In the morning, it just seems to be my nose that is oily and I suspect that has something to do with using the Wild Rose cream at night. If I'm consistent with cleansing/moisturizing, my skin doesn't really get any dry patches, though. Although my chin can be a little iffy (that's where I tend to get blackheads/breakouts). I started breaking out after using the Ren for a week, and that's continued with the Philosophy one too. Any thoughts or suggestions? I'd like to find something I can use consistently, but I've thought I had oily skin for so long and now that I'm not sure, it feels overwhelming and I'm unsure of what to look for! ETA: My skin is also a bit uneven with freckles/discoloration. I like my freckles, and I know sunscreen is important with this. But I just want to keep my skin healthy.

I use Clinique dramatically different moisturizer. I also use the gel on days my skin isn't needing something more moisturizing. I am currently working my way towards more natural products with less chemicals. I recently moved towards using tart makeup and eye shadows. Now I'm looking for a moisturizer. Any suggestions?
