Anyone else get this via UPS today for participating in the SPF chat a few weeks back?  It was a pleasant surprise. I can't use the products because they have chemical SPF ingredients but I will be sure to pass them along in a TSB real soon

Asian, with acne prone, sensitive, oily skin... HELP?
Hi! I'm 25 years old, Asian American (Vietnamese specifically). History of my skin: I had to get on Accutane by 6th grade.... anyways, skin was mostly clear throughout until college when I went off of BC at ~19 years old.   Skin went crazy, now it is still crazy at 25. Here are products I've been using:   PURPOSE Gentle Cleanser First Aid Beauty Facial Moisturizer NARS Sheer Glow in Santa Fe Occasionally NARS translucent powder   SO, now being summer I need something darker than Santa Fe..and something better at controlling oil. Because 2-3 hours after putting on my makeup, my face is a grease ball.   I tried the NARS LUMINOUS (also in Santa Fe) which was absolutely 110% gorgeous. Coverage was amazing. Didn't need concealer like with Sheer Glow.   EXCEPT the staying power for Luminous was terrible. Ok here's the thing...when I jumped in the pool it stayed relatively well. But when my greasy face got greasy... the foundation just turned into pools. See attached photo...can you see the foundation slipping off? It was especially gross if I itched my face and all the foundation ended up underneath my nails...   Anyways, staying power sucked AND on top of that, it would make me break out!! Just what I need to add to my problems!     So now I need some help and suggestions! I have lots of acne scarring/pigmentation, redness, and a few breakouts all over (mostly chin/jaw... now spreading to my cheeks but I thikn that's because of the Luminous).     HELP!!!!!!!!!!

Favorite non-foaming cleanser?
I am in need of a morning cleanser, preferably a non-foaming one as I have very dry and sensitive skin.

Especially towards the end, or even just half way through the bottle, getting product out is just unnecessarily frustrating. So help!    Lots of thanks

Any eye cream/oil/serum that actually helps with lines,wrinkles?
Hi ladies,   I've been trying out the Algenist complete eye renewal balm for 2.5 months now, and been using it religiously every day. I haven't noticed the slightest improvement in my under-eye lines, rather they seem to have increased in number. Am not saying that the eye cream caused the increase, but it didn't help either.   I'll still finish it but was really hoping for a recommendation from someone who has had  actual   results along these lines! I am ok with any creams or serums or oils - anything that shows visible results.   I am 28 yrs old and have dry skin. It's less dry in the summer of course. Is it time to start retinol under the eyes? I really don't want the lines to get any worse. Please advise!

Amazing Experience at My Local JCP Sephora Little Rock
I just wanted to take a moment to send my praises to JCP Sephora in Little Rock! Had an awesome experience today! I was in a rush to pick up some Murad Clarifying Wipes on my lunch break. I was treated wonderfully and had a great time engaging in casual conversation with the cast members. I told them I was leaving for a beach vacay and asked for samples at checkout. The lady surprised me with a TON of samples, mostly geared towards SPF protection! Just check out all my goodies! I mostly purchase online, but that will definitely change! Thank you so much, JCP Sephora!!!

My Fear of PTR Retinol
I'm sure this has been asked before...and I tried to use the search function, I really did, but it gave me a headache and now I'm over it.   So, having procured a free sample of PTR retinol serum, I now find myself afraid to apply it.  I have sensitive skin and many products are irritating to me.  I currently use PTR's VIZ-1000 Hyaluronic acid serum morning and night without incident.     I have learned some tips on how to adjust your skin to using retinol.  My first thought being, why?  What does retinol do for the skin that my hyaluronic complex will not?  What are the benefits that would make me want to go through stages of desensitizing myself; is it worth it?   Also, how about my eye area?  Is it safe to apply there?  This is where I need anti-aging the most.  The only wrinkles I have developed so far are right under my eyes.

Problem Skin!! HELP
My skin is a constant stressor for me....Oily/Acne Prone/Large Pores/Sensitive...As far as makeup,  I am currently using Clinique concealer, Hourglass Foundation & Clinique stay matte sheer pressed powder just to touch up if needed. I have tried so many different kinds of foundation.... -Clinique Acne Foundation -Hourglass Foundation (seems okay) -Tarte Amazonian Clay -Makeup Forever HD -Physicians Formula -Clinique Even Better Foundation ......just to name a few I have also tried some from Origins & Aveda which seem to have no coverage and instantly melt off my face. I need something with good coverage that doesn't make me look greasy!!!    As far as a cleansing routine, I use Clinique liquid soap in the morning, Clinique Clarifying Lotion, Clinique Stay-Matte Hydrator Moisturizer.  To remove makeup, I use the Clinique Rinse-Off Foaming Cleanser. then wash with the Clinique liquid soap. I also have a Clarisonic but I don't use that all the time.  I prefer more gentle cleansers versus acne specific cleansers/lotions/etc. because those seem to irritate my skin. I have done Accutane (more than once), seen multiple dermatologists; however, I still haven't found a solution.     At this point, I don't care about costs as long as I can find something that works.  Trying things then having to take them back is a constant pain.  I am thinking I need to try a different cleansing regiment as well as look into different makeup options...any suggestions would be greatly appreciated....

oily but dehydrated?
So i have been going through this struggle for years and can't find a solution. I have pretty much given up on make up/skin care and have returned everything to sephora. I have a very oily t zone but my skin is also dry. I will apply a primer and foundation but for some reason every foundation sticks to dry patches on my face that i didn't even know i had. I thought i had "combo" skin which is what everyone at sephora calls it but every product they have given me doesn't help my skin at all. I also have very red sensitive skin. I've used oil free moisturizers to try to control my oil but it just makes me even more oily. I use the peter thomas roth oil free gel type moisturizer and the gentle cleansing pads (sorry i don't know the name off the stop of my head) and the firm x exfoliator. I use the cleanser by first aid beauty with a clarisonic. the glam glow super mud mask has helped clear out my large pores so much but now i have holes in my face!! there is NOTHING that will help tighten them. I'm just so upset because i love make up but i can't find anything in skincare that will help me. please help!!!!

Peter Thomas Roth Products / Preventing Blemishes?
Hey there everyone! I'm going to try and include as much as I can so you guys can help me out, I'm in a slump.   My skin is combination, it's only oily in the T-Zone. I do wear makeup but I'm very careful about what kind of stuff I put on my face, and I cleanse at night to make sure I remove all of it. As for acne, it's not really acne really, but I usually have at least one or two blemishes on my face at all times, whether it's just clogged pores or a smaller blemish. I also have red post-acne marks that are slowly fading. I'm using birth control to help with those hormonal ones and it helps for the most part.   Currently my skincare routine is: Morning Aveeno Positively Radiant Makeup Removing Cleanser (it's really gentle, I use it both morning and night) Clinique Dramatically Different Moisturizing Lotion   Night Garnier Clean Sensitive Makeup Wipes Aveeno Positively Radiant Makeup Removing Cleanser Clinique Clinical Clearing Gel (on spots, thin layer all over as well) and on dry spots I'll use the moisturizer again.   My skin isn't particularly sensitive, but I don't want to upset it so I go for gentler products (except the gel, I use the harsher stuff at night). I'm also a student that works part-time so I don't mind spending 50-60 on a product I know is going to work, but I don't want to buy a ton of different products- you know? I've learned less is more.   Anyway- so far I've been looking at a few PTR products to help me prevent any more blemishes from showing up. I've been looking at the Therapeutic Sulfur Mask, AHA/BHA Acne Clearing Gel, and the Glycolic Acid 10% Hydrating Gel.     I'm also open to other products/brands! Thanks for any advice.   EDIT: I'm now wondering if I should be using a cleanser or moisturizer with acne-fighting ingredients, or a mask, to try and prevent and just use a spot treatment? I'm not sure. I don't want to overload my face with products.

Frequency of exfoliation + re-applying sunscreen
Hey all you beautiful ladies!   Now that summer's upon us and we are all enjoying the gorgeous weather and the bright colors and slathering on copious amounts of sunscreen as we step out into the day, I have found myself going really low on exfoliation my face. I have dry skin and usually during the rest of the year, I'd use a lactic acid or glycolic acid based exfoliator every other day, or at least every 2 days. But now, I am just skeptical about exfoliating my face and exposing it to the stronger sun rays at this time. I've been exfoliating once every 4 days now.   Is this ok or should I do it more often? Also, do you guys really re-apply sunscreen as you step out of work?  Doesn't that involve an elaborate procedure of washing your face and then applying sunscreen? Is that really feasible everyday?  I'd love to hear tips and tricks people use to make this easier in their daily lives!   Thanks!
