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?
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!
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.
Has anyone here tired the Dr. Dennis Gross Clinical Concentrate hydration booster? Now that the weather is starting to get cooler and by November will be very cold my skin is starting to need an extra dose of moisture. Any issues with breakouts or bad reactions? My skin can be sensitive at times its very hit or miss. I like that I can just use this here and there and not everyday and I don't need to change my entire skincare routine (that's working) to be able to get the extra help. If anyone has any other products they can recommend that would be great too. Thanks https://www.sephora.com/clinical-concentrate-hydra tion-booster-P385773?skuId=1609312
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've recently been on a hunt for a clay mask to combat the pores, black heads, and deep cleansing and have fallen in love with the results Boscia's black mask gave but I've found the peeling off process to be very irritating and reddening (?).. but otherwise its "just right" does anyone have tips/tricks to use this in a less irritating but still get as much benefit?
Hi, I am looking for a new skincare line and so far am interested in either Nude, Boscia, REN, Ole Henriksen, Korres, or Caudalie. I am overwhelmed by reviews online and all the information. My main concerns are minimizing pores and getting rid of blackheads, moisturizing, and preventing wrinkles (I am 30 and mainly have wrinkes around my eyes). I also plan to get the Clarisonic Mia 2 to use with the cleanser. Any help is much appreciated! Thanks
As a woman in her late 30's, I have been using Clinique's Repairwear Laser Focus for lines on my forehead for the last few years. I think it's been helping - at least my lines haven't gotten worse. Now that Clinique has introduced the new Smart Custom Repair Serum, I wonder if I should make the switch. I plan to stop by the Clinique counter at Macy's this week, but wanted to see if anyone had some advice before I make the switch.
So I have a really big event coming up in about a month and I really want to get rid of my acne scars since I hate the look of make-up caked onto my face (I have super oily skin so it is always noticeable) My routine right now is fairly simple. I wipe off make up with tea tree oil wipes I wash with Jack Black's deep dive moisturize with Origin's Night-a-mins and use glamglow supermud clearing treatment twice a week What products do you reccomend me adding/switching?
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 started using my clarisonic a month ago with the sensitive brush head, once a night. I developed small pimples on my forehead and cheeks about two weeks into it. Now, I have weird bumps just about all over my face that are slightly itchy. They seem to be under the skin everywhere. It's very upsetting being that some people are getting improved texture from the clarisonic and mine is horrible. I switched to the delicate brush two days ago but it feels just as rough and I haven't noticed a difference? Do you think these bumps are from irritation? Has this happened to any of you? Do any of you use the delicate brush and has it made a difference? PLEASE HELP
I have oily skin. I use good products for washing my face, but my makeup seems like it disappears a few hours after I put it on. If I don't use waterproof mascara and eyeliner, it is gone right away. I can never get eye shadow to stay and although I have used Estee Lauder in the past and like their cover up, I would love to hear any suggestions from Sephora! Thank you!
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 have extremely oily skin but it seems like if i wash my face once a day its super oily but if i wash it twice a day it becomes dry. i do have acne but not extremely severe, more like little tiny pimples pop up on my cheeks forehead and chin mostly. I have dark spots due to the acne and at times my skin has been dry like a bone on my cheeks or chin and then my nose and forehead is extremely oily so i don't know what to do or what is going on with my skin! My skin is not smooth anymore and seems like dull! Also i can't find a moisturizer perfect for my skin. It either moisturizes too much and my face becomes oily or it doesn't sink into my skin and doesn't make my skin look or feel smooth. I have been using the First Aid Beauty Face Cleanser and it helps clean my skin and smooths it out well but i'm hoping for something better maybe? Can anyone help me please!
I continue to have oily, shiny skin, esp. in my T-zone. My foundation matches my skin tone fairly well, except it can at times look cakey and ghost-like--turns out HORRIBLE in pictures sometimes. i have tried so many different foundations, i really would like to avoid having to blend 2 different shades if possible. I have tried: bare minerals loose powder foundation, chanel mat lumiere long-lasting matte liquid foundation, laura mercier oil free supreme liquid foundation, benefit hello flawless powder foundation, benefit hello flawless oxygen wow foundation, bobbi brown long-wear even finish foundation, estee lauder double wear powder foundation, makeup forever mat velvet liquid foundation, NARS powder foundation, and a host of drug store foundations. Current makeup/skin regimen: Wash face 2x per day with Clean & Clear Deep Action Cream Cleanser (oil-free) solution (have used it over the years, but skin has never been as oily as it is now.) Cetaphil Daily Facial Moisturizer w/ SPF 15 (all skin types) Smashbox Photo Finish Foundation Primer (oil-free) Bare Minerals Correcting Concealer in TAN 2 Bare Minerals READY Foundation w/SPF 20 in R330 Tarte Amazonian Clay Long-Wear Blush in "exposed" Bare Minerals Mineral Veil Tarte not-so-slick oil blotting papers (as needed) I'm also currently on a prescription antibiotic for my skin (face, back & shoulders), Doryx DR 200mg. Not sure if this could contribute to anything but thought i'd list it anyway. Any suggestions would be great. My skin is super sensitive but I'm open to hearing tips for combatting this oil! i don't know how girls' makeup lasts so long, mine doesn't even last past a few hours. also, I'm hesitant to get matched to a new foundation, but again open to hearing suggestions. I'm filipino so my skin is kinda in between tones.
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!
i HAVE A SAMPLE OF JOSIE MORAN ARGAN OIL AND WAS WONDERING IF I CAN MIX A LITTLE OF THAT WITH MY MOISTURIZER . i JUST DON'T WANT TO PUT OIL STRAIGHT ON MY SKIN I THINK IT MIGHT BE TO GREASY FOR MY SKIN.
I was reading on another forum that volumizing shampoo can really dry your hair. Is this really true i was gonna buy some volumizing shampoo to add volume to my flat fine hear and it is color treated and hightlighted i want to soften it not not dry it out more. If someone can answer that question for me that would be great and save me a whole lot of money too. thanks.
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
I only use Proactive + in the mornings when I know I will be inside.(When I'm outside I use just SPF) I only use the Pore targeting Treatment and the Complexion perfecting Hydrator. I don't use the cleanser because it is too harsh for my skin. I have oily skin and the Proactive does not help with that, but it helps with my acne, so I still use it, I just make sure to carry blotting papers with me. I wanted to put the Ole Henriksen Truth Serum Collagen Booster with it to help with the sun damage I have. Will that be ok for my Acne Prone, sun damaged, oily skin? Or will they counteract each other and be ineffective, or would it be to harsh on my skin?
