Hello, I'm 34 with fairly normal skin. It used to be oily but has changed in past few years to normal (and VERY slightly sensitive, though not enough to really be a concern.) What I'm looking for is something to address my under-eye wrinkles which have developed in the past year. I've had forehead wrinkles for quite some time but recently saw lines looking like crows feet and some wrinkling that goes from under eye are to top of cheeks. It's kind of hard to explain, sorry! I also have a lot of dark spots from sun damage. I do not have issues with puffy eyes or dark circles. I have used retinols and glycolic acids on & off infrequently over the past 10 years, as well as light moisturizers. What I've used so far in the past 2 years to address my current issues have not worked well: Peter Thomas Roth Camu Camu brightening mask (great hydration but did nothing for my dark spots and wrinkles) Philosophy renewed hope in a jar: did not minimize wrinkles at all, Ole Henriksen 3 little wonders: making my under eye area VERY dry and seeming to deepen the wrinkles there. Long story short, I need something to hydrate my under-eye area and give me anti-aging benefits, and would love a multi-tasking product for my dark spots as well. Any suggestions are welcome and thank you so much for reading my long post!
Watching YouTube videos I heard they help with fine lines on the forehead and help clear skin. But my question is what size to get? I have this horrid habit of crinkling my forehead and I want to try to lessen these creases as I am 30 years old. Already purchased a dermastamp.
I started using my Mia 2 in January but I switched to Proactiv on the first of March and haven't used my Mia 2 since - I'm afraid the little beads/rough texture of Proactiv's cleanser could harm it! Is it okay to use them together? Thanks!
I have very oily skin and always break out. I'm on an oral medication for my acne but I need some type of acne kit to wash my face with and have a daily routine. I have moderate acne, blackheads, and big pores. I was looking at the clinique acne solutions and murad one. Which one would you recommend? or something else?
Hi everyone, I have had dry, slightly combination skin (in that the t-zone is oilier, but not really that much). I've never had to deal with breakouts before. However, of late, I have been noticing that the t-zone pores look larger, and I end up having a few breakouts on my cheek as well. Am I overdoing the moisturizing/hydrating bit in my skincare routine? At night, I cleanse with the Ole Henriksen Pure truth cleanser, then with the Fresh Soy Cleanser. I then use the FAB radiance pads and then use Boscia's Tsubaki Beauty Oil and follow up with a hydrating night cream. Is that too much? Should I replace the Tsubaki beauty oil with another serum?
I normally have oily skin but for the last month my eyes have been really dry. The inner corner of my eye lid and the outer corner of my lash line stings, especially after washing my face. My inner eye lids also flakes if I don't put some kind of cream or oil on it. This hasn't happened to me before so I am not sure of the reasons why. I haven't changed my skincare routine other than using the Tarte C-brightener eye cream, but only after my eye started getting dry/ flaky/stingy. I need an eye cream I can use both on my lids & under eye to help moisturize my lids and under eye, to prevent it from flaking.
i am sufferring from acne for past 2-4 months. I have tried many beauty creams which promised a faster result, but everything went in vain. Now i want to know which was should i go, Natual cream, lotions or home remedies?
i like to look at the international Sephora sites to drool over things I can't get (or that I pray N. America will get eventually). Found these two items today. I wonder if the Oil Infusion is a dupe for the YSL?? I hope we get these eventually.
Just wanted to create a forum where everyone can vent and am also curious as to how bad it can get or if I'm the only one that feels angry and embarrassed after leaving my local Sephora for being treated badly. Please feel free to share your stories!
Hey! so recently I've been getting a lot of little red bumps around my chin area. the red bumps eventually turn into whiteheads. A few will go away and then a few more will suddenly pop up. Also I have acne scars around that area that really annoy me and would like to get rid of Is there a sin care regimen that will help me get rid of both these things? P.S. I have combination skin
Hi again guys! Okay so I suffer with bad break outs and being a picker and tempted to pick my spots i've left myself with scaring!! silly of me obviously. But I was wondering what can help fade them away. Home remedies or CHEAP products as I can't afford expensive stuff! I have sensitive skin and combination skin. ALSO on my forehead i seem to have loads and loads of spots but they're not extremely visible and they don't come to the surface where they are white heads...They're literally JUST THERE. how can i get rid of this or help get rid of it?!! I've always dreamed of having lovely skin. my skin used to be great when i was 14 but when i turned 15 ( 18 this year ) BOOM break out into millions of spots! ANY advice is appreciated i could really use it! Thanks a bunch!!!
I've made a post about this before and I was advised that the little skin-coloured bumps on my skin are actually clogged pores. It looks even WORSE when I wear foundation (wearing MUFE HD foundation in the pic). So I'm doing everything I'm supposed to do... (I think). I'm drinking lots of water everyday, I'm moisturizing, I'm exfoliating, I bought a clarisonic to cleanse-- but the bumps are still there. I think they might have gotten worse actually. Here are the products I use: Boscia Makeup-breakup Oil cleanser, Purity Made Simple cleanser with the Clarisonic, Peter Thomas Roth exfoliating peel gel (twice-a-week). I use Clinique moisture surge or dramatically different lotion for my very dry skin. Is there another product I should be buying? I need help
Help!! My face seem to have spots that are dry. Somebody know any products that can cure this? I have previously used First Aid Beauty- Ultra Repair Cream and Face Moisturizer. As it helps relieve itchiness due to dryness it isn't enough to make it go away.
Hello Beauties. I am looking for face serum and moisturizer day and night. Special concern about skin glowing and brightening result. I have dry patches and dull no radiant skin and i hate it. Suggestions plz. Thanks
Hello ladies! So I finally decided to purchase my first eye-cream, and I needed some guidance as to which one would be best for me. I'm only 21, so wrinkles aren't a concern just yet, but I struggle with dark under-eye circles and the occasional puffiness. Thank you so much for your suggestions!
How should I go about introducing skincare products to my younger brother? He's turning 23 in May. He doesn't use any type of skincare products AT ALL. He's autistic so he thinks that skincare is a girl thing and he has this weird compulsion to shave his face. He uses an electric shaver every single day but he legit has no facial hair so all he's doing is irritating the crap out of his skin. His skin is super dry, red in patches, obviously irritated. It looks bad. I want to try to slowly introduce products to him that will first of all help target these problems and then second of all slowly build a very basic skincare routine. I was looking at the Jack Black line and was wondering if someone could give me some feedback on the items I'm interested in or if you think there are other items that would help his situation. First, everyone needs a lip balm!! And he has crazy chapped lips too. This can be a small thing to get him interested but I think he might view this as "lip gloss" and girly. And I hear good things about them as well so I wouldn't mind keeping it if he didn't use it. For skincare I'm looking at the Post Shave Cooling Gel. I get that it's supposed to be for people that use razors but the description of the product is everything that he needs it to be. And of course he'll need a moisturizer, been checking out the Double Duty Face Moisturizer. There are a lot of nice sets but I don't want to invest a ton of money on products he might not even use and I don't want to overwhelm him with all the stuff that comes in a set. I was thinking of just focusing on the bare essentials of what he needs and then if he likes it and uses it I would slowly buy him more. **EDIT: Just want to say thank you to everyone who posted! I had a busy day (business test!) so I wasn't online today. I think I'm going to buy that pack of 3 lip balms so I can keep one. I want to see what the craze is all about.
So I just used the Freeman avocado mask for the first time. I left it on for 10 minutes till it was completely dry. I just rinsed it off, and my face feels like its on fire and its totally bright red. I can outline on my face where the mask was (like around my eyes, around the edges, around my mouth). My face feels like its burning. Any help would be great right now! Thanks!
There was a thread not that long ago about those asian exfoliating foot peel masks and since seeing it and discovering that (thanks to whoever initially posted about it!) I just knew I had to buy it. I just thought that my Canadian gals would like to know that I found a box at Pharmaprix in Quebec (otherwise known as Shoppers in the rest of Canada) for pretty cheap. The internet told me that Shoppers carried a brand called Footner, but that's not what I found. But I did find "Feet Treat Pedi" by "Look Beauty" and the box says it was made in Korea. It was 10$. I got the last two boxes. It has the same directions as all the other ones: soak feet, wear for 60-90 mins, rinse feet. Feet start peeling in a few days. I'll either try it tonight or tomorrow night. I'm kind of excited but scared I'll go nuts and peel all my skin off. I just hope its as good as the real deal. I guess I'll know in about a week.
Last year I was getting sick of my acne so I bought a Clarisonic mia 2 with my christmas money and some Fresh Soy Face cleanser after hearing such great things about it. Needless to say my face purged. Then it didn't stop purging. My acne was out of control! I have always had bumps but like at it's worst 2-3 at a time on my face. With the Clarisonic it was like 10 nasty gooey pimples on my face all the time. I then tried switching to Philosphy's purity and still no help. Then I tried the acne brush head with the acne face wash and still it was no help. By this point I had stopped using it twice a day and only using it once a day and then once every other day and still the acne just kept coming. Finally I packed up the Clarisonic and haven't used it since. I tried using the Dr. Dennis Gross Alpha Beta Peel's (just 1/4 of the sheet at night) while washing with the fresh in the morning and while my skin stopped freaking out I still had pimples and the peel was making my skin super sensitive. I finally placed an order for Proactiv+. I had used Proactiv with some success but I hated how dry it made my skin and missing one night and my bumps would come back even worse. It's been 8 months on proactiv+ and even on this new "hydrating" formula my skin is still super dry. In fact the main reason I'm using the proactiv is to gently scrub at the dry patches on my face. I hate using the stuff and really for just a handful of bumps I don't think I need to be going to these extremes. Plus I have been having TONS of problems with the proactiv customer service people. It's just a hassle and expense I don't think I need. I want to use this expensive device I paid for and get off the proactiv+ because I think it's doing more harm then good to my skin. Anyone have any tips for getting off the Proactiv+?
