Fore Luxe...are you kidding me?!?!
So I was looking on the Foreo website about their products, and stumbled upon their Luxe and Platinum versions...for $6,500 and $8,800, respectively!!! I couldn't believe it! What is the most ridiculous beauty product you have seen?     EDIT:  should say FOREO..maybe I'm in a golfing mood! lol

Are Makeup Remover Wipes Enough?
As part of my skin care resolution this year I've been making every effort to clean my face at night before bed.  I thought I was doing good by using face cleansing wipes which I follow with skincare products.  I use my Clarisonic in the morning while I shower and then of course SPF moisturizer and makeup.  I was reading an article in a magazine lately that mentioned makeup wipes as the "lazy girl's" method that should only reserved for those nights when you are too tired to do anything else.  Should I be doing a better job at night cleansing my face? What works for y'all?

Clinique Acne Solutions Line
I have oily skin along with some acne. I've been using the Clinique 3 Step Introductory Kit For Oilier Skins for a couple of months now. It hasn't cleared up my skin but has seem to control my oil just a tad. I'm considering trying Clinique's Acne Solutions line, probably the Clear Skin System Starter Kit. My main problem is chin acne along with uneven skin tone and a few stray pimples. Does anyone know if the Acne Solutions Line will help or if there is a different brand I should try.

Biology, skincare or retinol experts, please help!
Ok, so I may or may not be panicking a little but I was putting on PTR retinol PM serum today and discovered red dots on the dropper. I tried wiping it with a kleenex (sprayed with alcohol to sanitize) and the red dots are INSIDE the dropper and I only use it right after I wash my hand, so I don't think it's from my skin contact? I could be wrong, it could be harmless, but it's pretty noticeable and I'm creeped out. Any ladies using PTR retinol PM? or have any idea what it is? does it have anything to do with retinol??? I just noticed it after I put the serum on. Not happy T.T

glycolic acid alternative
My sister swears by glycolic acid aka AHA (from my understanding they are the same). She recommends that ingredient based on the fact it is anti-aging but most importantly that it chemically exfoliates. She is against gritty exfoliants. BUT I live in FLORIDA and am an outdoors kind of girl. I feel I cannot use glycolic acid because even with sunblock I still get burn and get red! I've had to return products for this reason.  What ingredient(s) should I look to as alternatives?

Self Tanners for a First-Timer
So since I left high school (and had to spend summers working inside instead of outside swimming), I haven't been tan. At first I was okay, I do like my pale skin. But I'm really starting to miss that glowing, tan skin I used to have during the summer. Problem is, I don't have the time, patience, or location to go tan outside, and I don't want to go to a salon and lay in a tube. So I've decided to try out self tanner.   Problem is, I'm not really sure where to start. I know a lot of people recommend St Tropez, and I am interested in that. I'm just a little nervous about dropping around $40 for something I haven't ever done before. I've also read good things about Tarte's Brazilliance, and I like that I can use that on the face.   So, does anyone have any recommendations for a good self tanner to try? Are there any good tanners that have travel size versions that will actually cover my entire body? Are there any general tips I should know before I apply self tanner for the first time? Thanks everyone!

Sebaceous Cysts on Face...Help!
I've never had "deep" acne or cysts on my face before, but I have have a sebaceous cyst on my temple...right where a side burn would be in front of my ear. When I was heavier I would get them on my arms and legs where I would sweat (yeah, gross, I know), but never before on my face.    Does anyone recommend anything for this? It doesn't really hurt (unless touched, and then it feels bruised), and it's not noticeable (unless someone was close and could notice the flesh-toned orb on my temple, lol), but it is annoying.    Many thanks!

Clinique Moisture Surge Overnight Mask: questions!
I want to get a hydrating mask and I have my eyes on the Clunique moisture surge hydrating mask. It has good reviews, comes in a tube and fairly wallet friendy (plus, I want the little clinique CC cream that will come with the current gwp). Have anyone of you guys tried it? What did you think of it? And another question is, how often do you use it? In some reviews, it's beening used as a night cream, did that work for you or do you put this on after your normal routine?      Thanks!

Double Cleansing Combinations...
Hello beautifuls...are you a believer in double cleansing??  If not why and if yes what products have you used in combination that have left you with happy balanced skin??   I have  been experimenting first with the cleansing oils (Shu Uemeria Purifying when travelling, Murad Rejuvenating in AM, Clinique Take the Day Off Cleansing in PMl)  vs actual pure oils first to remove waterproof SPF/makeup and then a creamy cleanser ( Algenist Gentle Rejuvenating Cleanser) or a foaming cleanser.  Occasionally I would add an intermediate step such as a mild scrub or salicylic acid wash if I feel I need extra help with congestion.     First I must say I prefer cleansing oils due to their emulsification abilities with water.     What combinations have you tried??

How can I even out my discolored skin? + Concealer, please stay PUT after I apply blush
Hello, ladies (and possible gents)!   So, I'm wondering how can I even out my skin tone. I have blotchy, discolored skin - lighter in some areas than others, and even after putting foundation and powder on, you can still tell that the color is a bit uneven.   It also makes my blush appear reeeally blotchy and uneven and that bothers me to no end. Is there some sort of trick for this??   Also, for those of you who have breakouts and/or acne scarring on your cheeks, how do you conceal the area without rubbing the concealer off when putting on blush and highlighter, etc.? This doesn't happen when I conceal other parts of my face, but I think it may be due to the fact that my scars are so dark.

Q. My legs are dry looking no matter what I do!
I have been shaving my legs for a long time and I absolutely hate shaving cream. It irritates my legs so I don't use it. The problem is that my legs look dry and almost like i have scales even though they're completely smooth.

skin flaking grey
So I wear aloe vera gel on my face after I cleanse and tone.The last two times I applied my bb cream on top of it, it started to flake. There were grey eraser shaving like flakes on my face. I wasn't sure if it was because my bb cream was quite old, so I tried a new one, but same thing.   It's weird because it goes on smooth and then as I rub it in my face and blend it ends up flaking grey.   Does that mean the face moisturizer isn't good or should I exfoliate more?

Should I go on anti bacterial skin care products?
    I went to a esthetician yesterday and she talked about how I have alot of black and white heads that can develop into a full fledged acne if not taken care of..  (not just on the nose but on the cheeks and forehead as well)  and that I should stop squeezing them out to leave scars around the face..    she recommended for me to use a line of skin care that kills bacteria that I'm supposed to pick up next week..  I have acne prone skin, but I'm very very sensitive and dry at the same time.. she said it won't be drying.. but what should I do? she's telling me $184. I can't use anything else. just the set to get rid of the bacteria deep within I've had salicylic acid and benzyol peroxide before which both ended up leaving my skin irritated, dry, red, and just worse..
