So I was browsing Instagram today and saw something very exciting!! There were several pictures of new Sunday Riley products that I haven't seen mentioned anywhere before. One was an oil (possibly replacing Artemis, since it's being retired?) called UFO Ultra-Clarifying Face Oil. It's a 1.5% salicylic acid dry oil aimed at oily to combination skins and is supposed to target blackheads, acne and signs of aging. There's also a interesting sounding product called Martian Mattifying Gel Toner, though I couldn't find a clear picture of it. Apparently the oil and the toner have already launched in some Sephora stores! I know there are a lot of Sunday Riley lovers here, so I thought it was strange that I haven't heard anyone talking about this! Neither Sephora nor Sunday Riley has mentioned the products at all, so perhaps the stores put it out too early?? I'm very curious, does anyone have any information about it? *Photo credits go to Themakeuprepublicofficial on Instagram
my skin is usually pretty clear, but once in a while i start to feel one of those deep pimples about to surface. is there anything i can do to prevent it from fully forming? i try everything to make it go away as soon as i feel it coming, but within a day or two it turns into a huge blemish that takes weeks to go away. are there any good products i can apply as soon as i feel it coming to stop it from growing? price isn't an issue as long as it works, I'm desperate lol thank you!!
Hi, I would like to know if there is a good moisturizer you would recommand me for an combination skin. (My T zone is really oily) I tried a few like : caudalie, clinique, la rocheposay, Khiels, argan oil josie maran, nothing helped me... Thank you for your Help !
Do you agree with her views on skincare products? I'm on a hunt for my Summer night serum & moisturizer. I think I'm going to purchase the Perricone Blue Plasma even though it stinks so bad of fish & I hate fish. I've been researching products a lot and one of the sites I was on was Paula's Choice. She is not a fan of the serum... Actually the more I read through her "beautypedia" reviews, it seems like she's not a fan of a lot of products. I also got a feeling she was mainly trying to push her own products and Olay. Examples: - She's against treatment cleansers since it's just "washed down the drain". I have to disagree with this. When I use a treatment cleanser, although they can be drying, I do see improvement in my breakouts. - Witch Hazel is bad. I find witch hazel to be an important ingredient when choosing a toner. She think it's just as bad as alcohol if not worse. Products she gave a "poor" rating to: - Anthony Logistic's Glycolic cleanser got a poor rating because it doesn't contain any glycolic acid. - doctor dennis gross's A/B pads since we can just skip step 2 by simply splashing water on our face to deactivate step 1. - Dior Capture Totale One Essential Serum because it's not a "miracle serum" since it's primarily just "water, slip agents, and alcohol" - ExfoliKate - Just about every Ole Henriksen product I love - Origins Checks & Balances, Charcoal Mask & every other decent product from them - Most Murad products I do agree with a few points she makes, like companies need to stop putting active ingredients in clear vials so the sun doesn't break down the properties of the treatment. Also jar packaging is a big no-no for her. I understand that some creams are too thick to be put in a pump, but what about those airless jars that Bosica & Dermadoctor are using? I hate sticking my fingers in jars & the air does break down the active ingredients over time... Overall though, I don't think I'll be going to her site when I'm researching a new product I want to try.
My mother has had red and inflamed skin for a while. She has asked me recently what to do about it but i am not familiar in this area. I was thinking a cooling mask/cream or something of that kind but i am not sure. Any help?
I am looking to change up my skincare routine, and do not know where to start. Any advice is greatly appreciated!! I have been using my Clairsonic nightly with Purity face wash, followed by Clinique clarifying lotion 2, and then Clinique dramaticaly different moisturizers for so long! I have been hearing that i shouldn't use my clairsonic every day. I have very normal skin, not really oily or dry. I tend to have a few breakouts right beside my chin, and a few blackheads beside my nose. My questions are: how often should i use it? what cleanser should i use with it? should i use the same cleanser in the morning, and on the nights i don't use the Clairsonic?
Everyday I feel more and more uncomfortable in my skin. I have fair, sensitive, acne prone dry/combo skin, with acne scars on the sides of my cheeks. Seeing girls with flawless skin and makeup applications makes me feel more self-conscious about my skin and makeup that never seems to look right on me. Too drying and matte, too illuminating and oily, too powdery etc. No matter what foundations or techniques or primers I've used, nothing seems to change. I'd like to toss out everything that I've got and start fresh, including my skin care products and choice of foundation, starting with skin care first. Currently I'm using Garnier face wash for sensitive skin, L'oreal alcohol-free toner, and moisturizer also from Garnier with SPF 30. Once in a while I exfoliate, but I've flipped flopped between products since my skin is sensitive to abrasive beads that are usually in those products. Any suggestions would be amazing! Thank you!
I've been using Pure Perfection for almost a year now and I love it! However, I'm also interested in trying some other Ole moisturizers (especially Express the Truth and Nurture Me), and I see almost all of them have great ratings. Has anyone tried different moisturizers from the line, and if so what are your thoughts on them?
For about the past 2 months my foundation looks gross aroundmy nose. The top of my nose is a little oily, while the sides of nose are dry. I use either the Nivea mens post shave balm that everyone talks about or the maybelline baby skin primer. I switch out between my Loreal infallible pro matte, Maybelline fit me matte and poreless or the revlon colorstay foundations. I have stopped wearing makeup because I don't know what to do. Im looking for something on the affordable side if possible, no more than $30. Thanks!!
I was thinking we should have an "official" NUDE Skincare thread, in case something comes out from this new NUDE story that is happening lately. ( And even if not. ) So we can follow it all here. There are some threads, but those are more just questions and inquiries about NUDE stuff. It would be easier to have all things NUDE at one place, so we can all share news, updates, those possible new products, and anything NUDE here. This is an announcement on Beautycounter about NUDE Skincare: "It is with great excitement that we announce Counter Brands, LLC, parent company of Beautycounter, has acquired the worldwide assets of NUDE Skin Care, Inc. and NUDE Brands, Ltd. founded by Ali Hewson, the wife of musician and social activist, Bono. As a result of this deal, and their genuine interest in our products and mission, Bono will join the company as an investor and Ms. Hewson will join the Board of Directors of Counter Brands, LLC. Similar to our partnership with Target, this validation from such respected public figures will lead to increased brand awareness and client base. We are thrilled to have them join our team. The synergy between our two companies – from mission to ingredient selection process – makes NUDE a logical and compelling addition to our growing brand portfolio. We believe that incredible things are possible for our business and our unwavering advocacy work in D.C. For the foreseeable future, the Beautycounter and NUDE lines will exist as they do today." They also said: "“We will continue to sell through their existing channels of distribution,” Renfrew said of Nude. “The idea is to grow the channels of distribution as well as the product line as a whole,” she said." Also: "NUDE products are currently available in the US on Sephora.com, across Europe in Space.NK stores and online, in Australia in Mecca stores and Mecca.com." Response from Sephora's CS ( 6/30/2016 ): "The Nude Skin care line has been highly anticipated with our clients, and we can certainly appreciate your interest! At this time, some of the NUDE products are limited edition and will be on our site as supplies last, while other products are on our site to stay! We suggest staying tuned to Sephora's promotional emails, as new product launches are frequently announced via email. Additionally, keep checking back on our website under the Quick Link "Just Arrived"." If you have any news, please feel free to share them here. If you have questions, post them here, and hopefully someone will have answers. Or we can all "investigate" together and try to find out what's cooking.
so basically I have dry, rather sensitive skin, and I'm looking for some great skincare products. I'd like to start anti-aging now even though I'm only 18. So what cleansers, serums, masks, eye creams, moisturizers, and night creams should i look into? xoxo
I've recently seen a few articles about shaving the peach fuzz off of your cheeks and upper lip and so on, to help you have a more even complexion and to allow your makeup to apply better. I don't believe in the whole "it'll grow back darker and thicker" thing, and I know that Marilyn Monroe and Elizabeth Taylor did the shaving thing, and that dermaplaning has become popular. Has anyone tried this or know anyone that has? I have fine peach fuzz over my cheeks, and sometimes it's annoying when I'm trying to go for the flawless makeup look, and I don't think I could handle waxing or threading my cheeks, but if razoring works, then I'm willing to give it a shot. I also read online that it helps to remove a layer of dead skin, like exfoliating, and can give you a more even complexion.
I HAVE MILD ACNE IN THE FORM OF WHITE HEADS FOR THE LAST 15 YEARS AND I HAVE USED TONS OF SKIN CARE PORDUCTS.I NEED A NICE CLEANSER WHICH ADDRESS MY WHITE HEAD PROBLEM.I DISCOVERED 3 CLEANSERS.ONE IS BOSCIA DETOXIFYING BLACK CLEANSER,SCOND IS PTR BETA HYDROXY ACID 2%ACNE WASH AND THIRD IS PTR ANTI AGING CLEANSING GEL.WHICH IS BEST FOR MY PROBLEM?
Hi everyone! I have been dealing with bad cystic acne on my left cheek and chin, and have small white heads sometimes on my forehead. I have been to a dermatologist who told me to use a benzoyl peroxide face wash at night with my clarisonic and Noxema deep pore cleanser in the morning. I have been able to get most of my acne under control, the only problem is I have SUPER dry skin. My cheeks and chin peel even when I use a moisturizer twice a day. Right now I am using clean and clear salicylic acid lotion in the morning and then I use first aid beauty intense repair lotion at night. I am still getting acne and my skin is still so dry... Does anyone have a moisturizer they love that will not break out dry skin? I am always super scared to use something with oil in it because everyone says oils cause acne. Any help would be appreciated!
I suffer from an extremely oily T-zone and acne scars, so need to use a full-coverage foundation. I have gone through so many products trying to find something that will smooth out my face and not melt immediately. The best I've found so far (and they're not great) is either Laura Mercier Silk Creme or Tarte Amazonian Clay foundations and Smashbox Photo Finish Oil-Free Pore Minimizing primer. BUT I can not find a moisturizer that actually mattifies and/or doesn't look cakey with foundation. I'm using Kate Somerville toner and was put on a First Aid Beauty skin care regimen after my SECOND Sephora makeover (the products aren't doing much for me). I'm also using Josie Maran argan oil at night (also not helping). Moisturizers I've tried are Sephora, Clinique, Caudalie, Peter Thomas Roth, First Aid Beauty. None mattify and all look cakey with foundation. And yes, I leave at least 15 minutes before applying each step to try and allow them to dry. I am using a foundation brush to apply foundation, and patting it with a beauty blender. Nothing works! Any suggestions? I'm at the end of my rope.
My face has lots of pimples especially on forehead and it's very oily and same time feeling dry hence my face always look very dull. I have tried so many skin care and they are even making it worse with more pimples on my face. Any advice on what kind of skin care shall I use? Any mask or moisturizer? I am in my 20s. This problem is making me lose my confident. Thank you XOXO
hi ladies, I noticed that I have slight rosacea. Usually I just have that during the wintertime. Is it possible that the sun can cause that? What do you recommend? Cremes? Toners? Or some sprays? Thank you! N
Often people ask for recommendations on a skincare routine or for specific products/combinations. This might be a place to share your everyday skincare, both AM and PM. A skincare "what are you wearing" as it were. Hope this is useful. *Age - 40 Skin type - oily/combination Current skin condition - quite dehydrated (winter/indoor heating)* 01/17/16 - AM skincare in the order I used 1. Nude Jelly cleanser (love) 2. Pixi Glow tonic (5% glycolic toner - love) 3. Omorovicza Queen of Hungary Spritz (sample) 4. Radical Skincare Youth Infusion serum - hydrating and anti-ageing (new to me. Testing) 5. Bobbi Brown Hydrating Eye Cream (like) 6. Elemis Pro-Collagen Marine cream (really like as an AM moisturizer) I will try to post PM skincare tonight so the post can be comprehensive. General comments - Okay skin. Apparently the age between 38-42 is a transformational time in hormones (dehydrated skin/spots), so I am more aware of how my skin performs/reacts . My skincare definitely has more "actives" now than before.
