Drunk Elephant for Oily Skin?
I'm currently using the First Aid Beauty Mattifying Oil Free Moisturizing Gel and it's doing nothing for me. Can't wait until the tube is empty. I'm considering splurging on the Drunk Elephant B Hydra Intensive Hydration Gel but wanted some opinions on it since it's so pricey. I use the CeraVae PM moisturizer at night and would prefer not to use the AM in the morning before my makeup.

Bikini Line Drama!!!
Hello lovelies!   I got burnt after my brazilian wax a couple months ago and the scar is still there. The burn is right next to my bikini line (very visible when I'm wearing a bikini) and it makes me feel very uncomfortable. The skin is very wrinkly and extremely dark. It was very itchy at the beginning and I didn't know it was a burn so I just applied some soothing cream and kept it moisturized.  I went to a new place yesterday and the waxing lady told me I could get a chemical peel on the whole bikini area to help with the scaring and the hyper-pigmentation but it sounds a little scary. My skin is very sensitive and prone to ingrown and the skin on my inner thighs is a little darker compared to the rest of my body so I'm a little self conscious about that.    I also thought about using peels like DDG or OH Lemon Peel on the skin around the bikini line to help with the scar but I don't know if it's a good idea.    Please let me know your thoughts/ experiences if you ever had to deal with hyper-pigmentation or any type of scars in the bikini area. Any advice or suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

HELP! FLAKY HOT MESS!
Lately I've been having terrible, terrible skin. I used to have oily skin, but now it suddenly turned dry, especially on my cheeks and forehead and t-zone, or basically EVERYWHERE. Before, when I check in the afternoon, my face would be shiny but that completely changed. I use bb cushion, which is supposed to be oily, but I don't find it helpful at all. In fact, it just emphasizes on the flakes. In addition, the flaky and dry parts are so rough and sometimes my cheeks get red from irritation. I'm not sure if it's the season change; it's been like this since March. I'm so frustrated   Right now, I've reduced my skincare routine just to an essence and a night cream (the Korres Wild Rose sleeping facial) or a gel based lotion (if anyone is familiar with the Korean brand, Nature Republic's Aqua line) for the morning.    I honestly don't know what's the cause for this. I've also been getting the same amount of sleep as I always have. Should I go see a dermatologist? Or are there products people recommend I can use that's not very irritating? Thank you so much in advance!

Masks "sink" into pores
Okay, this isn't a problem (I don't think) but I'm hoping someone can help explain it to me. Anytime I use a mask on my face - usually some kind of clay - once it's dried it looks as though it's sunk into my pores. Even dry, it's a different color on my nose and chin, where my pores are larger and more prominent. But when I wash it off, there's no mask residue left behind. Is it soaking up oil? Does this mean it's working?   Thanks!

HALL OF FAMER TrysBeautyItems / HALL OF FAMER HALL OF FAMER / replied
A clay mask does tend to dry differently in coloring, from when applied. Clay will soak up oil and draw stuff out.   Which mask are you referring to?  see post
eyebrows help!
Hi,  I just cant decide if I should use the gimme brow  or anastasia wiz pencil and powder to do my eyebrows with.  I tried all , and still not sure, although I didnt try the gimme brow the way I read you can use it to shape your brow also.  And not sure about the light or dark shade in it  as my hair is a medium brown, but eyebrows are dark brown.

Shadow Crease color for everyday eye lookthe
I typically wear a single shadow all over the lid and have only recently been experimenting with actually using a darker color in the crease. However, most of the matte brown shades i've tried in the crease tend to look too dark / harsh for me. So I'm looking for suggestions for a crease shade that is slightly darker than my skin tone and will go well with a simple champagne / taupe everyday shadow.   I have fair skin with yellow undertone (ex. I wear the shade Gobi in the Nars sheer glow foundation). My go to everyday shadow colors are  Stila Wheat, Urban Decay Sin, Mac Naked lunch and Burberry Pale Barley.   I'm open to any brands, but I tend to like Stila, Urban Decay and Mac. I would particularly like a Mac suggestion since I'm placing an order withe them anyway (I was considering Soft Brown but I really think it's too dark for me - I was instead looking at Kid or Omega as possibilities).

How did I live without this?! Caudalie - Vinosource Moisturizing Sorbet
Caudalie Vinosource Moisturizing Sorbet. This is an amazing product. I'm very red and I've started to lean towards dry as I have gotten older.    Using this product under Diorskin Nude BB Cream has made me look 5-10 years younger! The BB cream seems to cover so much more evenly now, and I seem to have a little bit of a "glow" because I'm using the sorbet.   I think the Caudalie has made the BB cream much more effective and has contributed highly to that beautiful skin factor we all want. I've gotten great results, even without color correction the past few days. This is a keeper I'm not sure will go away.

I can't find a good moisturizer for my acne-prone skin
I have tried so many. I'm struggling to find a moisturizer I love and that does not cause breakouts. I break out mainly on my cheeks, chin, and jaw/jawline. 1. Clinique Dramatically Different Moisturizing Gel: This doesn't feel like enough hydration. I love the texture, I love the feel. This used to be my HG moisturizer but as I've gotten older it's just not enough. 2. Clinique Moisture Surge: Feels too silicone-y/plastic-y. May have caused breakouts. Belif Aqua Bomb: This is not oil-free and I think was causing me breakouts. 3. Boscia Black Hydration Gel: It was okay...but a skin rep at Sephora told me that using charcoal daily is not good for my skin because it pulls out impurities??? 4. Boscia Sake Balm: Soooo sticky. Weird/goopy texture. Returned. 5. Sunday Riley Tidal cream: Latest one I purchased. Has a lot of fragrance in it and I am afraid that is causing me breakouts/small bumps. It's $65 dollars and honestly has not wowed me in the last few days I have been using.

Blackheads/Sebaceous Filaments on Nose
I have had a problem with the blackheads on my nose for about 15 years. I have otherwise near-perfect skin which is slightly dehydrated, but have never suffered from acne or oiliness. The pore problem is isolated to just my nose, which is also rather large. What I am currently doing to get rid of them is using a pore strip after a steamy shower, then gently exfoliating my face and following up with a charcoal mud mask. This gets rid of them... BUT! I have to repeat the process within 3 days, and I am so tired of doing this. I have done so much research about the topic, and I know someone is bound to respond to this with "Don't use pore strips. They stretch out your pores and make them worse. If you stop using them, the blackheads will go away," but the blackheads are literally so bad that I cannot not be seen in public without clearing them first. The blackheads are 3-D, and stick out of my skin so I can literally feel them when I run my finger along my nose. (Did I mention I have a big nose? The blackheads are very noticeable!) Also, I have tried abstaining from using pore strips for a long time while being diligent with my normal skincare routine, and the blackheads did not just "go away." Below is a list of other products which I have tried to remedy the problem with:   Glamglow Supermud Clearing Treatment Caolion Premium Blackhead Steam Pore Pack Origins Clear Improvement Charcoal Mask Tony Moly Blackhead Out Oil Gel Clarisonic Cleansing System the entire line of Dr. Brandt "Pores no More"   I'm sure I am forgetting even more products which I have used, but NONE of these has helped my nose pores, and I am really open to any suggestions at this point. Has anyone with this problem found a method to fix it? What should I be doing differently? Any advice will help. Thank you so much!

Always Have One Pimple On Cheek
I have normal-dehydrated skin, and have never had a problem with acne. Lately I have been getting one sole pimple in the middle of either of my cheeks. When I have one on the left cheek, as soon as it goes away I get one on my right cheek. I can't figure out what is causing them. I change my bed sheets once a week and I never go to sleep without properly cleansing. Do I need to change my pillowcases more often? Any hypotheses or advice will help! Thanks

Day Moisturizer with SPF?
I'm in need of a new moisturizer for the day, specifically want one with some SPF now that it's getting warmer and I'll likely be outside a bit more. My skin is mainly dry, sometimes dehydrated around my t-zone so that can get oily some days. I also have pretty sensitive skin.   I tried out one from CerVe since I love a lot of their other products, but it was basically just straight sunscreen and it wasn't hydrating at all. Not helpful when I was looking for a moisturizer. It's fine if I'm using it as sunscreen and not wearing makeup, but it did not perform well under my makeup.    I have a sample of the Benefit Triple Performing Facial Emulsion, which I love the consistency of, but I hate the bottle it's in and also hoping it might be possible to find something with a bit more SPF than it has (15).   I have been recommended the Pete Thomas Roth Max Sheer All Day Moisture Defense Lotion so was curious if anyone has used it, and maybe the benefit one as well, that could compare the two? Or any other possible recommendations?

Moisturizer - Dry/Dehydrated from TRETINOIN
I've started back on my Tretinoin prescription from my doctor. I see great results so I'm willing to try & work through the madness and like every other situation in life....you're never truly prepared.    Is my skin flakign off? No. Is it super tight? No. It's slightly firm after I wash my face with KS Goat Milk Cleanser but I definitely cannot go long without a moisturizer. I've been using JM Argan Oil and the JM Face butter soon after but I don't think it's doing enough.    You can REALLY really tell how dry my face is once I put UD Naked foundation on. It literally sits on top of my face & never blends very well.   I do have some larger (not huge) clogged pores within my T-zone area so I would like to stay away from anything that is TOO rich and/or greasy feeling so that it doesn't mess up balance. I'm definitely hoping for a deep penetration moisturizer!   Does anyone have any suggestions? PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE!   Thank you

In Search Of A Kid-Friendly Hand Cream For Very Dry Skin
My eight year-old son with special needs has VERY dry hands, due in part I'm sure to all of the hand-washing in school. I doubt that any of the products on the market are toxic, but can anyone recommend a really good hand cream that's safe for kids, in case it should get into his mouth? I'm currently using Aquaphor Baby on his hands at bedtime (which is almost like using Vaseline) but it doesn't really seem to be doing much. As you can sort of see in the photo (this is the best image I can find of his hands at the moment), the skin isn't cracking, but it's rough and dry, especially on the backs of his fingers and on his palms. He's non-verbal so he doesn't complain, but I know it must be a bother.   Thanks for any advice or suggestions!
