Cleansing Balm
What is the best makeup-removing cleansing balm, cleansing oil or cleansing milk? I wear foundation and I need something that actually dissolves makeup and doesn't just glide over it. I like Eve Lom's Cleanser, but want to try something new.

Looking for a successful pore cleanser!
I'm looking for a new pore cleanser for my nose. I've really noticed my super-clogged pores on my nose over the past few months and I'm tired of it! The gunk is practically sticking out of my nose and my makeup just sits on top of it and makes it look worse! I've tried the bosia peel-off masks in black and white, the biore nose strips, st ives apricot exfoliator, neutrogena alcohol free toner and nothing works!! What's your go to pore unclogging item? I'm desperate!

Sensitive skin annoyances!
I've seen quite a few posts on BT about sensitive skin and problems people need help with. I thought it may also be fitting to have a space for people to complain about the difficulties of sensitive skin among sympathetic readers, as well as possibly look for advice and recommendations. It can be so annoying sometimes and no one quite gets it like other people with sensitive skin.    Skin type: Combination oily/oily, hypersensitive skin with eczema (developed 6 years ago) Complaint:  I recently tried the Nars Radiant Tinted Moisturizer and fell in love. I mean,  in love . As someone with usually combination oily/oily skin, I usually shy away from anything with the words "radiant" or "luminous". However, it works in a way that my skin is glowy (in this less-than-glowy New England weather) without looking oily. Alas, it seems like it's not to be because the  Octinoxate sunscreen. I have had a problem with chemical sunscreens for a few years. However, my lips have recently been more tolerable of them, so I thought that  maaaayybbe the same could be said for my face. Alas, that is not the case. I can't stand the limited options that sensitive skin can bring. Oh, to be able to use almost any product...I dream of it.

Looking for the right line.
I am 45 and looking for a skincare line that is right for me.  My skin has been acting up lately - probably because of trying new products to find the right one.  I am looking for a line that would help me with anti-aging issues, dry skin and small breakouts around the nose area.  It is not rosacea I have been told, but definitely irritated skin.  So bottom line is my skin is sensitive and dry.  I would like to try a line that is paraben free and more on the natural side, but I understand some of the chemicals are needed for the anti-aging.  Any advise is greatly appreciated!!!  Thank you in advance for any info you all can give me.

Troubled skin - Early 30's
Little background info. I am in my early 30's, combination skin (more on the dry side) having trouble with breakouts around my chin and nose. Currently I am using Acne Solutions Cleansing Foam, Clinique Toner #3 and Cliniques Dramatically Different Lotion +   I've tried several different products and nothing seems to be helping clear me up. I am becoming a little frustrated spending $$ and returning and trying different products.    I've been told that the breakouts are hormonal however they don't just happen at that awful time of then month, it is consistent so not so sure about that.    Just wondering if there are any others in a similar situation and what has worked for them.   Seriously considering going back to Proactiv but hesitant.

Budget friendly Korean skincare that works?
Hello!! I know there are a few threads on here about Korean skincare but I was hoping to get some opinions tailored to my own skin.  I have pretty normal skin, dry in the winter, and acne prone.  I currently have a second cleanse that I will not part with (Yüli Halcyon) and two toners I love (Herbivore coco rose and Yüli Panacea) but I will take all kinds of recommendations! I'm most curious about essences though, I was looking between the Missha essence and the Benton snail bee essence.  Can anyone give some insight into budget friendly (but still gives results) products?

Best Skincare Products for getting Rid of Acne?
I used to have really good skin. I would only get like two pimples. Then my girlfriend broke up with me, and everything started falling apart. I've been extremely stressed. I got over ten pimples in one day. I've never felt so bad about my appearance. Foundation recommendations would be nice as well. I recently bought a really great foundation, but it is sheer and that was what I needed before but now I need something that will cover up all my pimples. Nothing too expensive. My health has been keeping me from working regularly so now I have to be much more careful with spending my money. Thanks in advance,

Desperately Seeking Night Cream!
Hey All!!  Hope everyone who's into football is excited about  kick off, in this exciting Super Bowl 50!!     So, I'm just over 40 with normal/dry skin. I've been blessed with intermittent hormonal acne in the past few years, which was kind enough to leave behind some bumps and scars.In the past several months I have  begun obsessing about my laugh lines and the creases  on my forehead.   I've now spent so much $$ on anti aging skin care products it's scary. I'd love help with anything anti aging and/or scar healing, but what I  desperately NEED to find is a really good night cream. I need something hydrating that I can put over my acne cream. I already use SR Luna and l'occitane's Divine Youth oils, and I love them,but I need a cream that I can wear over them once the oils have absorbed.      Any suggestions and/or advice is much appreciated!!

Favorite Mask or treat yourself products
So its that time of year when a lot of us either get gift cards, or get ourselves a little something special just because we deserve it, and face masks are one of the things I always think of as the perfect little indulgence--not too expensive, but mostly not something I think of as an absolute necessity so not something I usually buy for myself and the perfect thing to treat yourself with.  Since its been a couple of years since we had a thread on favorite masks and with so many new ones that have come out, I thought this might be a fun discussion to have so......   1) what are your favorite masks and why? 2) do you have another favorite treat yourself product/purchase?

Moisturizer for acne prone, dry skin?
I know there's loads of posts out there but I kind of wanted one a bit more tailored to my skin and personal issues! My skin is always kind of dry in the winter, definitely not oily in the summer though, so it's normal I guess!  I recently started a topical prescription (Benzaclin) but it makes my skin super dry! It doesn't really need to be oil free (I also find they don't work as well), just something that isn't too thick (I didn't like the FAB repair cream)!    Thanks

Murad Skincare
So I was wondering if anyone has any recommendations on Murad skincare products. There are two reasons I ask this, one I recently got a 100 point perk of the hydro-dynamic quenching essence I believe it is called and love it.   Second my holy grail face wash has been discontinued. It was Olay total effects anti blemish cleanser.   I was thinking the Murad AHA/BHA cleanser might be a good match as it has salicylic acid in it and that is the one ingredient that keeps my hormonal breakouts at bay. It also has scrubby beads in it like the Olay one I loved.   Any advice would be great!

What are some good products / solutions for my HUGE PORES?
I did some searching, but it appears all similar threads are pretty outdated and / or contain little helpful information for me.   The pores on my nose are HUGE. It's a genetic thing. My mom and sisters have it too. It's not from aging or sun exposure, it's just a thing I've always had to deal with. It has always bothered me. I use the strips to keep them deep cleaned and mattifying moisturizer, but it's still an uphill battle.   I did a product search, but there are so many. So I was curious if anybody out there has any personal experience with any of them and could point me in the right direction.   Thanks in advance!

First Time Facial Oil User
Hi!  So the first oil I tried was back in November, the Drunk Elephant Marula Oil, for my dry skin as I was purchasing a few other items from their line.  However, it broke me out in little bumps on my forehead that are only now going away (I decided to stop using it at the beginning of January)!  The next one I tried, and am still using, is the Herbivore Lapis facial oil but i'm breaking out in weird places (I started this mid-January).     My question to you guys is: How long should I trial a facial oil before ditching it?  Is there an adjustment period where my skin will go crazy (especially since the Lapis is for balancing oil)? Instead of trying it for longer or switching to a new oil I figured I would ask you knowledgeable people!    Thanks in advance
