SEPHORA 8hr Mattifying Moisturizer
I bought this moisturizer because I have oily skin. It's been so out of control lately. This moisturizer is amazing, but it reacts with my Becca Mattifying Primer is such a awful way. I want to continue using the moisturizer because it's so good. But I wondering if there a primer that will go well with the moisturizer or a moisturizer that will go well with the primer.    Please Help!

My advice is to make an appointment with a dermatologist if you haven't already.  It's often the quickest route to success.   see post
Foundation
I have EXTREMELY oily skin, work in a restaurant in which I am around heat a lot and run around, and I live in Texas where the humidity is decently high. I have yet to really love a foundation that controls my oil, I love power foundations but am open to suggestions.

Battle of the oils!
Hi all!    I've been loving the Luna Sleeping Oil by Sunday Riley for the last month and have definitely noticed some huge improvements in my fine lines and discoloration.   However.   I'm still finding myself breaking out a bit in clusters.  I've heard great things about both the Artemis and U.F.O. oils from Sunday Riley and was wondering if anyone had a preference between the two.   For reference, I'm about to slide into my 30s, have normal-oily skin.  I wash my face daily with a Clairsonic and use the Dr. Dennis Gross Acne Eliminating Pads which have definitely been helping as well.  I'm basically just looking for the last push in my skin care routine.     I'm good applying morning and night and am open to any combo of suggestions.   Thanks babes!

I use it once a day - usually in the morning.  I change the head out probably every couple months.  Which honestly could be part of the problem. see post
New Sunday Riley Products?
  So I was browsing Instagram today and saw something very exciting!! There were several pictures of new Sunday Riley products that I haven't seen mentioned anywhere before. One was an oil (possibly replacing Artemis, since it's being retired?) called UFO Ultra-Clarifying Face Oil. It's a 1.5% salicylic acid dry oil aimed at oily to combination skins and is supposed to target blackheads, acne and signs of aging.   There's also a interesting sounding product called Martian Mattifying Gel Toner, though I couldn't find a clear picture of it. Apparently the oil and the toner have already launched in some Sephora stores!   I know there are a lot of Sunday Riley lovers here, so I thought it was strange that I haven't heard anyone talking about this! Neither Sephora nor Sunday Riley has mentioned the products at all, so perhaps the stores put it out too early?? I'm very curious, does anyone have any information about it?   *Photo credits go to Themakeuprepublicofficial on Instagram

Skincare for adult acne
  I am 35 years old and while I'm begin to get concerned about mild signs of aging, my biggest concern is the acne and bumps I have on my cheeks, chin, and the lower side of my jaw.  I use retin-A, and plan to continue doing so, but I've had a hard time finding a cleanser and toner, and perhaps foundation, that works well for me (too many products out there!).  Recommendations?

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.

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?

Thoughts on Paula's Choice?
Do you agree with her views on skincare products?  I'm on a hunt for my Summer night serum & moisturizer. I think I'm going to purchase the Perricone Blue Plasma even though it stinks so bad of fish & I hate fish. I've been researching products a lot and one of the sites I was on was Paula's Choice. She is not a fan of the serum... Actually the more I read through her "beautypedia" reviews, it seems like she's not a fan of a lot of products. I also got a feeling she was mainly trying to push her own products and Olay.  Examples:  - She's against treatment cleansers since it's just "washed down the drain". I have to disagree with this. When I use a treatment cleanser, although they can be drying, I do see improvement in my breakouts.  - Witch Hazel is bad. I find witch hazel to be an important ingredient when choosing a toner. She think it's just as bad as alcohol if not worse.    Products she gave a "poor" rating to:  - Anthony Logistic's Glycolic cleanser got a poor rating because it doesn't contain any glycolic acid.  - doctor dennis gross's A/B pads since we can just skip step 2 by simply splashing water on our face to deactivate step 1.  - Dior Capture Totale One Essential Serum because it's not a "miracle serum" since it's primarily just "water, slip agents, and alcohol" - ExfoliKate - Just about every Ole Henriksen product I love   - Origins Checks & Balances, Charcoal Mask & every other decent product from them - Most Murad products   I do agree with a few points she makes, like companies need to stop putting active ingredients in clear vials so the sun doesn't break down the properties of the treatment. Also jar packaging is a big no-no for her. I understand that some creams are too thick to be put in a pump, but what about those airless jars that Bosica & Dermadoctor are using? I hate sticking my fingers in jars & the air does break down the active ingredients over time...  Overall though, I don't think I'll be going to her site when I'm researching a new product I want to try.

I have been hearing that i shouldn't use my clairsonic every day.   I have very normal skin, not really oily or dry. I tend to have a few breakouts right beside my chin, and a few blackheads beside my nose.    My questions are: how often should i use it? what cleanser should i use with it? should i use the same cleanser in the morning, and on the nights i don't use the Clairsonic?

Moisturizer for dry, acne prone skin!
Hi everyone! I have been dealing with bad cystic acne on my left cheek and chin, and have small white heads sometimes on my forehead. I have been to a dermatologist who told me to use a benzoyl peroxide face wash at night with my clarisonic and Noxema deep pore cleanser in the morning. I have been able to get most of my acne under control, the only problem is I have SUPER dry skin. My cheeks and chin peel even when I use a moisturizer twice a day. Right now I am using clean and clear salicylic acid lotion in the morning and then I use first aid beauty intense repair lotion at night. I am still getting acne and my skin is still so dry... Does anyone have a moisturizer they love that will not break out dry skin? I am always super scared to use something with oil in it because everyone says oils cause acne. Any help would be appreciated!

Mattifying Moisturizer That Mattifies and Doesn't Cake??
I suffer from an extremely oily T-zone and acne scars, so need to use a full-coverage foundation.  I have gone through so many products trying to find something that will smooth out my face and not melt immediately.  The best I've found so far (and they're not great) is either Laura Mercier Silk Creme or Tarte Amazonian Clay foundations and Smashbox Photo Finish Oil-Free Pore Minimizing primer.  BUT I can not find a moisturizer that actually mattifies and/or doesn't look cakey with foundation.   I'm using Kate Somerville toner and was put on a First Aid Beauty skin care regimen after my SECOND Sephora makeover (the products aren't doing much for me).  I'm also using Josie Maran argan oil at night (also not helping). Moisturizers I've tried are Sephora, Clinique, Caudalie, Peter Thomas Roth, First Aid Beauty. None mattify and all look cakey with foundation.  And yes, I leave at least 15 minutes before applying each step to try and allow them to dry. I am using a foundation brush to apply foundation, and patting it with a beauty blender.  Nothing works!   Any suggestions?  I'm at the end of my rope.

So, I know we should all be wearing SPF everyday, even when we are out in the sun minimally. It has anti aging benefits, etc and even being in the car the sun can still do damage.

Are these really good replacements for when one can't wear sunscreen? Just a regular day when I'm wearing makeup and not going to the beach or something similar? I know foundations with SPF aren't enough, but how about these setting sprays? Anyone have other recommendations? I'd also like to note that I have dry, sensitive skin.
