Hi Angela5716,   A good way to think about the order of your skincare routine is by using the product that has the thinnest consistency to the thickest. I hope this ... see post
SKIN CARE..Breakout control
Hey guys! I had a question regarding to skin care products. So, recently I’ve been experiencing some serious breakouts. My face has always been in good condition, and I have been using several products to do that (Kiel’s, Korean skincare, Fresh), in addition to that I always thought that good genes are another reason for my ‘problemless’ skin (my mom and sister have the best skin ever!!). However, the breakouts that I now have consist on small acne look-like pimples and are in only one section of the face (the right one and forehead), the left part is perfectly fine. I believe that my T-zone has recently become more oily than usual and that’s the reason behind this breakout. So I’m looking for a good moisturizer (oil-free), cleanser, and mask. I’d like to note that I’m allergic to tea tree oil so what do you guys suggest? Thank youuuu!!

Help with skincare routine please
I am 40 with combo normal to oily in the T-zone skin. I have a tendency to get dehydrated skin, as I have allergies and take meds everyday. My skin is sensitive, and I also have mild rosacea/acne prone. I don't use primers as they tend to make me break out. I find that anything too active is a no go for me.  I recently had a terrible experience using Clinique's Moisture Surge - Hello Roscaea. Like the worst flare I have ever had. This is what I am using and it doesn't irritate my skin. I have some holes and am looking for some help please, thank you in advance! From Sephora or not, I have tried a lot of products and I really want my skin to be calm, glowy and just look good!    Morning: Caudalie Gentle Cleansing Milk Toner? Serum? Moisturizer that can prep skin for makeup.? SanRe Eye Candy   Night: Tatcha Pure Camellia Cleansing OIl Korres Greek Yoghurt Foaming Cream Cleanser with my Clarisonic Toner or Essence? Sunday Riley Luna Korres Greek Yoghurt Moisturizing Face Cream Some nights I mix in Cliniques Smart Treatment Oil in my Moisturizer for an added boost SanRe Eye Candy   Mask: PTR Rose Stem Cell Mask (Any Other Suggestions for pores?)

Klairs Vitamin C Serum Expiring?
Hey ladies, I've been using the Klairs C serum for the last three months, pretty religiously and it's been amazing. However, this morning I noticed a little yellow spot inside the pipette that disposes the serum. It's too large to enter or exit the pipette so I'm fairly certain that it's a fungal growth. I tried getting a picture but it's too small and the pipette glass is too reflective for a helpful image.   However, like I said, I've only had the serum and been using it for 3 months. The serum has a shelf life of 12 months from opening the bottle. Has this happened to anyone else? I purchased the serum from sokoglam in late November.    Also, what do you guys think? Is it contaminated?

pH of products
Today I did some pH testing of products that interest me and here are the results:   Toners that are awesome at pH adjusting: Neutrogena Pore Refining Toner ph = 3   Bad: Belif Problem Solution Toner ph = 5 (upsetting!) Clarins Extra Comfort Toning Lotion ph = 5   AHA/BHA that have a good pH: Paula's Choice BHA 2% Liquid ph = 2.5 Derma e Overnight Peel with AHA ph = 3   Not so good: Peter Thomas Roth AHA/BHA Acne Clearing Gel ph = 5 Cosrx BHA Bleackhead Power Liquid ph = 5 (This one kinda upsets me, how comes it is five? I always thought its around 3 or 4)   Serums with low pH: Good Genes (super low pH)   Not so good Peter Thomas Roth Camu Camu Vitamin C Brightening Mask ph = 5 Andalou Naturals Turmeric + C Enlighten Serum ph =5

I need a good skincare routine
I have dry skin and some mild redness on my cheeks and chin and some mild acne along my jawline that Im pretty positive is hormonal acne. I need a good skincare regimen that will most importantly help with my acne if there is anything I can use for hormonal acne before having to break down and see a dermatologist and also some stuff for the dryness and redness that wont aggravate my acne anymore than it already is.

Do you Exfoliate or Cleanse first?
Hello, beauties!   This question has been unanswered for many years. I've read so many articles saying that it's always been that you cleanse and THEN exfoliate, however, there have been many studies suggesting that you could get even better results by exfoliating before you cleanse! I've tried both and it's seemed to be the exact same.   What do all of you beauties do first? And how has it been working for you?   Sincerely, HonestlyFab! xoxo

Ole Henriksen POWER Peel vs. DE T.L.C Sukari Babyfacial?
I use the Power Peel once a week right now and I like how it feels, but I live overseas for a few months at a time and so the DE T.L.C. Sukari Babyfacial looks easier to pack and just overall more convenient. Has anyone used both these products and think one is better than the other, or do they give similar results? I am not against buying another few 6 packs of the Power Peel! It is just more space in my luggage if the DE product is just as good (or better). Thanks!

Can anything stop dark circles from getting worse?
I'm 30, and had my first baby in October. I woke up one morning and tried to remove leftover mascara under one eye only to discover it was a "dark circle"!
