Hi! I was seeing if any ladies out there had some recommendations for products they have been using. I'm turning 25 in a few weeks, and looking for some new products. I have comination skin, acne-prone and scarring. Looking for day and night products! Thanks!
I have suffered from oily skin for my entire life. I try to be thankful because I know I'll continue to have fewer wrinkles when I'm older however, for right now I want to die! I have acne prone skin as well (as if it doesn't already go hand in hand!) and I'm currently looking to totally revamp my skincare/makeup routine. I've used foundations such as Kat Von D lock it foundation which moved whenever I would even touch my face, transferring to my hands, you could actually SEE where I had touched my face because the foundation would transfer and separate so badly. I've also tried Nars foundation, Tarte Shape tape concealer which I actually love, but don't think it's great for my oily skin sadly I'm obsessed with Laura Mercier setting powder, and have tried some drugstore foundations, but everything seems to literally want to slide off my face. I have used benefit porefessional primer for about six months and though I love it, I also don't think this is great for oily skin. My Becca poreless primer seems to work well, but I'm open to other suggestions as well. I'm thinking a lot of this could be helped over time with the right skin care. The right wash, toner, moisturizers, and masks could really do the trick as I notice the difference with masks almost immediately, my face loves them! Any good face/sheet mask suggestions for oily/acne prone skin? I've read that I should be hydrating my skin more even though it is oily... I'll literally take all the help I can get! Thanks! xx
I will be going to Hawaii for a month and I think that due to the humidity I will need a primer to ensure my makeup has some staying power. Right now I am using the NARS Radiant Tinted Moisturizer and it lasts for me without any primer until about 3-4pm when applied at 7 am. I am in between choosing three different primer options at the moment. Any thoughts on the following: Sephora Collection Beauty Amplifier Ultra Smoothing Primer http://www.sephora.com/beauty-amplifier-ultra-smoo thing-primer-P412147?skuId=1829274&icid2=products% ... Cover FX Calming Primer http://www.sephora.com/calming-primer-P388019?skuI d=1641281&icid2=products%20grid 388019 NARS Pore & Shine & Control Primer http://www.sephora.com/pore-shine-control-primer-P 415963?skuId=1900117&icid2=products%20grid 415963 Or any other recommended primer? I do have oily skin when it comes to the afternoon and more dry in the morning.
Hi everyone! I'm looking for a good face mask to use once a week, that will help control my acne and prevent further breakouts. I know there are a ton of good ones out there, just trying to find something that will FINALLY work for me! Thanks, y'all. I appreciate it
I have pretty dry under eyes! I moisturize a lot so I don't have dry patches after applying concealer..but it looks and feels so dry. I currently use the Nars creamy concealer. Does anyone have a concealer that doesn't dry their under eyes/accentuate the dryness? I want to try the Urban Decay one but I heard its drying.
Hey guys, I'm currently in the market for a hydrating toner that isn't a facial mist that actually hydrates like it says it will. I have dry sensitive skin and on nights that I use a retinol or an acid serum I like to balance it with a hydrating toner, but I don't even know where to start looking. Help?
I'm looking for makeup for my wedding in September that'll hold up in heat and sweat/tears/possible rain. (I know I'm asking a lot but I have no idea where to start. I am overwhelmed by so many choices at Sephora) I have very sensitive skin that breaks out with most of the covergirl, neutrogena, and Avon foundations. I recently tried tarte rainforest of the sea foundation, and I love it. Hasn't broken me out yet! Will it cause flashback? I need a blush that won't disappear in 2 hours. What is a good one? Also would highlight be a bad idea since I'm oily? This world of makeup is confusing. What is a good place to start with the start of it all being my wedding?
I'm in my early thirties and started noticing my skin changing a bit. It's a bit rough sometimes and I have a few lines under my eyes. Also, my dark circles are getting worse. Nothing too noticeable, but I would like to get this fixed or prevent more if possible. Looking for suggestions on what works for other women in their 30s. What moisturizers, serums, etc. do you suggest? Also,I have the following items in my cart. Any comments on these would help too: Fresh Lotus Youth Preserve Face Cream with Super 7 Complex SUNDAY RILEY Luna Sleeping Night Oil CLINIQUE Moisture Surge Extended Thirst Relief OLEHENRIKSENTruth Serum® Dr. Dennis Gross SkincareAlpha Beta® Universal Daily Peel
Do you have UV damaged dry skin like me? As we get older, two components of our skin, collagen and elastin, degenerate, setting the stage for the appearance of wrinkles, creases, folds, and furrows. The breakdown of these components, accelerated by sun exposure and gravity, results in the sagging skin of old age. I've started using a Anti Aging Collagen and Olive Oil Moisturizing Soap by Joesoef Skin Care for my every day routine. It softens and smoothes my skin minimizing lines and wrinkles. It's good for dry to Normal skin. I use the soap on my face and body. You can find their product online. Great moisturizer bar! <3
this is my first cystic acne breakout - and it's on my forehead and going on 3 months now. Healing as it goes - and then new ones emerge overnight. I've always been acne prone, and have a simple routine that helps any surface acne. I had my first cystic acne break out on my forehead/hairline (the ones that are big and deep where they take a long time to drain or shrink). I blame the period where I tried a bunch of new skincare, not remembering that my skin easily clogs (from thicker foundations too). It's not folliculitis cause they don't itch, and they aren't milia cause I had milia my entire life and I know the difference. Whatever exfoliation liquids or those "acne" pads I tried, they only irritated and made my bumps worse. And on top of that after 3 weeks, they gave me fine lines that I've never had before. So I really don't want to use them anymore. But I still have no idea what these bumps are. I'm on my third month. JUST as my forehead starts clearing up, NEW ones reform. My old simple routine that works with my dry dry sensitive skin: Aveeno intense moisture overnight cream (this cream saved my dry dry flaky skin for years now with no problem) bio oil for acne scars and rough skin Products I've tried to use for this bad breakout and the current bumps: Cosrx one step pimple clear pads (made it worse) Sonoma tea tree oil serum (made it worse) Arcona aftershave pads (I think made it worse) Aloe vera Gel (I used for a little bit, but the formula has parabens) Aloe vera leaves (wow it made me breakout a whole new fresh batch) Paula's choice CLEAR regular strength exfoliating solution (honestly it gave me fine lines. stopped it immediately) aztec clay mask w/ ACV (regulates it but is not helping) Mario drying lotion, and drying cream help bring them to a head. but that doesn't stop new ones from forming. Cosrx pimple patches (have worked very well to drain and bring some bumps to a head) Please - WHY is it when I'm starting to see improvement and a smoother surface, NEW acne reforms and the process starts all over again? This is the first time I'm experiencing this type of acne and even my close ones are like "why isn't your forehead healing at all?" I just bought probiotics today and hoping that it will work. But meanwhile, I really don't want to go to the term in case of any more "suggested" chemicals that will ruin my skin. please please please
My skin has been a mess for the past three months and I feel like I've tried everything. Any recommendations to clear my acne up would be so appreciated! Here's my current routine: AM: tone with Lush Tea Tree Water, Josie Maran argan whipped face butter, and the NARs tinted moisturizer spf 30 PM: wash with Youth to the people cleanser, Kate Somerville Anti Bac benzoyl peroxide treatment, and Ole Henriksen invigorating night creme OR Josie Maran light argan oil I have tried Paula's Choice 2% BHA, Belief aqua bomb, Ole Henriksen find your balance cleanser, Ole Henriksen find your balance toner, most Murad products (the post acne spot serum worked, but its recommended to stop use after 3 months), Tarte maracuja oil, Kate Somerville eradikate cleanser, Ole Henriksen invigorating night treatment, Ole Henriksen truth serum, etc. I feel like I've tried it all. I'm even on spironolactone which totally cleared my skin last year when I first started it. I did stop using a benzoyl peroxide/clindamycin treatment back in November that I was on for 10 years, but I wouldn't think it'd take 3 months for my skin to break out again. But my skin was clearest on spiro and benzoyl peroxide/clindamycin. So now I've introduced the Kate anti bac and have seen some results, however I'm so dry and still getting new break outs. I am desperate for any advice. I've spent these last 3 months with trial and error
Hi Beautiful Friends, I am in my mid twenties and looking for a good eye cream. I have some very small fine lines starting on the corners of my eyes so any suggestions are greatly appreciated. As for my skin it's normal to dry and I'm looking to try a vitamin c serum. I've tried Glo cosmetics and liked that product, I'm currently using Argan Oil from Josie Maran and my skin soaks that up. Any travel masks you would recommend I'm going on vacation soon and would love to buy one for my trip.
Hello all! I'm on the hunt for a cooling face spray that I can use with/without makeup (so it doesn't necessarily have to be a makeup setting one, I already have one that I like for that purpose). I have moderate to severe rosacea so I am looking for something I can spritz on during the day when I'm getting a flare-up, after exercising, or just any point during the day I'm getting a little red that will give me a cooling sensation and that will actually help the problem a bit. I have used the Evian spray bottles, but I am wondering if there is something a little more 'medicated' if that's the word, that will help fix the problem besides just water. I also will be flying at least once a week for this next year, so I'm also looking for something I can spritz on during my flights to stay hydrated! Thank you!
I'm trying to plan ahead for summer and I want to find a good summer foundation. I have really medium, really oily skin with yellow undertones and want to find a foundation/BB Cream/CC Cream/Tinted Moisturizer that has light-medium coverage that feels lightweight on the skin and handles the heat of the summer and my oily skin, does anyone have anyone have any suggestions? Thanks!
Hi! I am using Dr. Dennis Gross Pell + Brigthen with Clinique acne solutions serum. Would those product work less because I use them together? And would actually this peel will make my skin Peeling? Thank you!!!!
I've been using Retin-A for a few months now because I had bumpy skin and white and black heads that never came to the surface. The results have been amazing and my skin has never looked better but one side effect is dry skin so I experience dry patches and my skin just flaking off. My current daytime moisturizer isn't cutting it so I'm looking for something that is extra hydrating and that has at least spf 15. I'm fine with even drug store brands. I just hate when I put on my moisturizer, do my makeup as then I get to work and I see my skin just flaking off.
I have noticed a lot of chatter about natural skincare products in the beauty world. There is no perfect definition of 'natural skincare' but I am thinking of products that are labeled partially or 100% organic, sulfate-free, paraben-free, plant-based, or just made with simple ingredients.
There are a lot of reasons a product may be considered natural so without overcomplicating the definition I have a question for you all: What are your favorite natural skincare products?
Looking forward to reading your responses!
Hello! I am looking for a new skincare routine and unsure if I should try the DRUNK ELEPHANT Day/Night sets or the SUNDAY RILEY New School Skincare Set (As they no longer sell Squad Goals) as I've heard amazing stuff for both. I am still a newbie and currently using a Korean skincare but I seem to keep breaking out now that I am older and almost done with it. My skin is sensitive, dry, now ACNE prone, blemish/ hyper-pigmentation spots and uneven skintone. Also I am turning 30 and want some anti-wrinkle skincare added to my routine. can anyone recommend on past experience, which one will help me the most! Thanks in advance!

I have tried numerous products, i'm almost at the point of getting some injections to rid myself of this....even when I wear makeup they still bleed through! Once I over slept and couldn't do my makeup and someone thought I got punched in the face (seriously) im desperate...
