I love the LXMI Crème du Nil Pore-Refining Moisture Veil but I travel a lot and every time this creme leaks out of the container. Does anyone have a suggestion I can try to avoid the leaks? I cannot imagine not using it but it is getting expensive to lose so much product all the time. I wish they would redesign the packaging as it seems this may be an issue. My original order leaked out and had to be replaced with the one I am using now. BTW....this stuff is so good...particularly after a long flight or a late night. I just love what it does for my skin.
Often people ask for recommendations on a skincare routine or for specific products/combinations. This might be a place to share your everyday skincare, both AM and PM. A skincare "what are you wearing" as it were. Hope this is useful. *Age - 40 Skin type - oily/combination Current skin condition - quite dehydrated (winter/indoor heating)* 01/17/16 - AM skincare in the order I used 1. Nude Jelly cleanser (love) 2. Pixi Glow tonic (5% glycolic toner - love) 3. Omorovicza Queen of Hungary Spritz (sample) 4. Radical Skincare Youth Infusion serum - hydrating and anti-ageing (new to me. Testing) 5. Bobbi Brown Hydrating Eye Cream (like) 6. Elemis Pro-Collagen Marine cream (really like as an AM moisturizer) I will try to post PM skincare tonight so the post can be comprehensive. General comments - Okay skin. Apparently the age between 38-42 is a transformational time in hormones (dehydrated skin/spots), so I am more aware of how my skin performs/reacts . My skincare definitely has more "actives" now than before.
Hi! I have very fair skin so any time a pimple goes away (which thankfully isn't often anymore) it leaves a red spot behind. I've tried a number of products but they either break me out or just don't work for me. Any suggestions?
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. If you don't know how, it's that super adorable little yellow button on the toolbar, located to the right of the bold/italic/underline/strikeout buttons. DONT FORGET: If you happen to be the most recent post, your first sentence or two of your post will show up EVEN IF ITS IN A SPOILER. 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?
I have been lurking around Instagram and I found a brand called Indie Lee. I have taken a look at their website and I'm kind of interested in their products. I haven't found many reviews on this brand so I would like to hear some opinions. I saw a Kate Somerville EradiKate "lookalike" from Indie Lee which is called the Blemish Lotion, I think. I also saw a Blemish Stick which is made up of witch hazel. I am very curious as to whether any of these two products are effective in treating occasional pimples. If anyone has ever tried products from Indie Lee, please let me know! I would love to hear your opinions before I go ahead to blindly and impulsively purchase some items to try out
I really love to use exfoliating cleansers. I truly loved, loved, loved the Laura Mercier, Flawless Skin Face Polish, and gave used it for about 4 years. I was so very disappointed that it has been discontinued. I would like to know, has this product only been discontinued in the Sephora stores or by Laura Mercier completely? When I found out I could no longer get this product I started looking around on this web site and I found, "exfoliating powders", there were only a few of these powders but they were quite pricy! Then I found the Sephora brand...Metamorphosis Exfoliating Powder, only to find out that this has been discontinued! I bought one of the jars, immediately went home and tried it, then went back and bought 3 more jars and if I see a jar in the stores ever again, I will buy it until they are completely gone from the stores! This powder is so great! You can mix it with your regular cleanser and you can even mix it with a little bit of water! It is even better than the Laura Mercier product that I used for so long. Now I have to find another exfoliating product! I'm guessing that these 2 products are being discontinued because of poor sales...that's just to bad...they were so good!
Hi All, I was wondering if you could give me some recommendations of face products for incredibly sensitive skin that is dry. (Also a lot of redness) I currently use the philosophy purity cleanser and it is starting to sting my skin (this started to happen very recently - before this it was perfect, no stinging and no redness) I use the Kiehls sensitive skin moisturizer and it has also started really stinging my skin and making it incredible red. I've used in the past and they all were not sensitive enough; First aid beauty moisturizer Jose Maran argon oil and milk both bother my skin ALL the glam glow products really irritate (which is so sad because I love the tightening one) There is a black face mask (cant remember the name - i want to say origins but probably not) also no good. - i am forgetting a ton of stuff Anything with any type of acid/chemical burns and makes my face turn red. I've come to the point where I've almost stopped using alot because it really bothers my skin BUT I NEED some moisturizer skin gets really dry in the winter. ANY suggestions would be sooo helpful!! I've come across this Kopari line - any good? THank you Steph
I used to have dry patches and oily skin, but I've switched to using Belif The True Cream Aqua Bomb, May Coop Raw Sauce, Son & Park Beauty Water, and I use St Ives Blemish Control Apricot Scrub as a cleanser. My skin has stopped being dry, but it's still oily. It's not as oily as it used to be but I really want to find a way or product(s) that would help my face not be so oily or shiny during the day. Also, I don't wear makeup.
I have an issue with closed comedones. It does not look good when I apply makeup and I have been using several things to try to get rid of them. I use the Belif Problem Solutions Cleansing Foam and the Moisture Bomb cream. I also use Paula's Choice Resist BHA and their Skin Recovery Antioxidant serum that has Retinol in it and COSRX AHA. I don't know if there is any product that isn't harsh since my skin is sensitive that you can recommend to get rid of these closed comedones.
Hello! I have very oily skin and enlarged pores. I currently am using the Clinique 3-Step and I have been using it for about 3-4 months. I previously used Dermologica and some other random products. Right now I use the 3 step-in the morning and then at night I use the Clinique City Block Charcoal Clenser in the evening (instead of the 3 Step Clenser) and use my Clarsonic. I also use the Clinque Moisture Surge after using the gel moisterizer and I like the way it does feel. I have stopped using it a few days to see if the moisture surge was causing the extra oil. I am looking for products or regimines, things I can change to make my skin less oily and at least reduce the breakouts. I can start doing something mid-day to cut down the oil, but the breakouts need to stop! haha. Thank you for anyone's help!
I am 27 years old, going on 28 in 2 months. I want to continue with anti-aging and wrinkle-prevention skincare. However, I have oily skin and still get blemishes on my cheekbones and have an oily forehead. Is there a moisturizer that can have the anti-aging and wrinkle-prevention effects without causing excess oil on my skin? Thank you!
I'm approaching 72. Have been using Origins A perfect world moisturizer but am wondering if I should switch to Origins starting over age erasing moisturizer? Or do you have a recommendation for another product for dry, aging skin?
I'm looking to freshen up my facial routine. I have always had sensitive skin and in my early 20's had a lot of difficulty finding products that wouldn't irritate my skin. I am 29 with combination skin I guess, overall my complexion is decent but not perfect. I get blackheads/my pores are obvious through the t-zone, I get white heads and small pimples a few times a month, my skin tone is somewhat uneven and I am prone to redness. I am also prone to dehydration in the winter. I have been using a Kiehl's regiment for the last three or four years, it works but it's not improving my skin anymore. I recently introduced a Ren mask, Glamglow Supermud mask, and Tarte Marcuja Oil into my routine. I love them. I want to change my cleanser/toner/daily moisturizer. I picked up samples of the Boscia black thermal cleanser, their green toner, and the charcoal moisturizer. I'm not really happy with the results. I don't see improvement, and actually I feel my pores are more obvious and imperfections worse than with the Keihl's products. Can you help me up date my daily routine?
I have combination skin. I still break out in acne around my chin, especially around my period. I also am very very fair, so will have discoloration from acne for months after. So I have oily patches, but then will get dry patches too. I am a HUGE Sunday Riley fan (Good Genes, Luna). I was wondering if anyone with a similar skin type recommended UFO or Tidal Cream as part of their routine (or both!) Thank you!
Does anyone have any recommended cleanser for oily skin and the packaging is nice? I have tried many cleansers and masks for the oily t-zone and pores but nothing really worked for me Origin : still oily after washing my face. Fresh soy: large pores afterwards Caudalie instant foaming : didn't clean the oil Kate Somerville detox : made my cheeks super dry Kate Somerville exfoliate foam : breakouts Kate Somerville gentle: didn't clean the oil Clinique 3 steps : the toner had a strong smell and if I skipped the toner, the products had not effect Erno Laszno oil and sea mud soap : finally worked, but I prefer a simpler cleansing product I heard other products that could work ( First Aid , Boscia, Philosophy ), but I would really prefer a nicer looking packaging. Right now I'm considering the following products, does anyone know if any of these could work? Perricone MD citrus wash Amorepacific treatment cleansing foam (I really like the packaging) Sunday Riley Clay Cleanser (the packaging is okay) Or anything else? I do use moisturizer twice a day and sunscreen during the day. Thanks oxox
