So some days I want very little makeup on. id like to give my face a break and let it breath. I notice some days my skin seems really pink on my cheeks and nose. I'm not sure if it's because I use my Mia 2 a little to much (those areas are sensitive) or because my face is tired of makeup hahaa. I use my Mia 1min =20sec 30sec in the morning and at night. so to the point. I want little make up so I want to skip on the foundation. However I have a little redness on my cheeks next to my nose and on my nose and around it. would a good skin tone light concealer be good for those areas and then a powder on top? whats your little makeup look? And days you skip Out on makeup? im trying to improve my skin and reduce redness. I've been drinking as much water as I can I tend to forget about hydration when I'm busy.
I've been having some skin issues. Blemishes, bumbs, and dry patches on my face, and it gets severe in the wintertime. I figured since my birthday is in 2 days, but I'm not sure if I should buy it. Is it worth it?
I have a very sensitive skin and slightly oily.. Please help me by suggesting face wash, toner, moisturizer for day and night and night cream.. Products that are not too expensive would be extra nice.. Thank you!
Hi ladies! I'm currently looking to try a facial oil since I've heard so many great reviews about it. I have extremely oily (sometimes combo?), acne-prone skin, and I've been using oil-free skin care products all my life. I've tried so many moisturizers, but I'm not fully satisfied because my face would get oily 1-2 hours after applying them. After doing some research, I narrowed down to 2 products: Josie maran argan oil and the Tarte Maracuja oil. Which one is better in term of hydration, fast absorption, control oil? I'd greatly appreciate your input/ help! Thanks!
I have been using Clarisonic Mia First for three weeks now and my face is full of cystic, pus-filled pimples and blackheads and whiteheads too! I don't go out of the house anymore because of this. I stayed home while my family was somewhere celebrating Thanksgiving because I am so ashamed of my face! I am 27yo and this is by far the worst breakout I ever had! I tried everything and switched to just honey and cinnamon as facial mask am/pm. But for removing makeup I use Chanel Cleansing Milk and the Exfoliating mousse to wash the excess makeup with my Clarisonic. I am just so ashamed and insecure I hide from every one I know even when I'm in the house and I would cry every night because of this. What can you suggest?..... Thank you..
Hi everyone, I'm hoping to get some help with my oily skin! I have very oily skin and big pores and my skin gets sooo oily by noon time! I want to try the boscia black line, but I wanted to hear from some people about what products they use first! So this is what I do now: I wash my face in the shower with a neutrogena exfoliater (right now its a apricot scrub, but I was just using one for pore refining). I use clinique pore minimuzing serum (just started using this a couple weeks ago). I also use a clinique moisturizer (dramatically different gel in summer and moisture surge extended in winter/right now). Then I use smashbox primer light and bare minerals matte makeup (foundation, warmth, blush, mineral veil). When I have time in the afternoon I will use some oil blotting sheets and some touch up mineral veil. At night I wash my face with a toner because if I was my face with an exfoliater twice in one day, it gets super dry. I then put on the pore minimizing serum again and then a topical gel prescription from my doctor for acne. Please let me know if I should be doing anything differently! I have combination skin. I tend to be really dry around my nose and mouth when I get out of the shower. Maybe I need to try a different moisturizer, but I've tried so many and they just aren't strong enough. I need your help and I need to try something new because my face gets so oily and shiny and it emphasizes my pores and melts off my makeup! Thank you!!
I am over 40 and my sensitive skin has JUST settled down enough that I am ready to try something more than a tinted BB cream and blush. Any recommendations for hydrating, but oil free foundation and concealer? How can I get good coverage using these products that looks light and fresh and not cakey?
Hi ladies, Trying to decide how to use my $20 off -- was thinking I'd like an intensive moisturizer or moisture mask for overnight, for a few dry patches on my face and for my hands. It can be FOR face, I just like to use it on backs of my hands too -- so it should be uber moisturising or thick if possible. Also needs to be low or no fragrance because I'm really sensitive. Suggestions?
Hey there beauties! I've been researching When masks and can't decide/tell what is the main differences between them & which I should try. Of the four sold on Sephora's website (The Last Choice, Travelmate, 10:00pm, Makeup Base) I was initially drawn to Travelmate because it sounds so moisturizing, convenient for travel & great for winter months….but when I read the descriptions of the other options they all sound fairly similar. Anyone have experience with these masks & have any recommendations? Thanks!!
I'm just wondering if people had tried Michael Todd organics products I've been into organic/natural brands/products but recently came across Michael Todd. Someone on youtube mentioned that they sponsor alot of videos on youtube, so I wasn't 100% if they do actually work. I read some reviews on makeup alley, but alot of the reviews on there are sometimes just negative.. so I wanted to ask people who are more objective
I'm 23 and want to start taking better care of my skin! I am obsessed with makeup but honestly I know very little about skin care. My skincare routine is pretty haphazard as it is. This week I bought a Boots kit from Target (came with a cleanser, exfoliator & serum). After only a few days I have been seeing improvement, but considering how little I was doing before, I'm sure anything would be better. I also have been using a Clinique Redness Solutions Moisturizer, and a Clinique eye cream. The moisturizer is ok but doesn't really do much for my redness, and the cream is fine but I think geared more toward wrinkles whereas I am looking for something for my heinous genetic dark circles. I have combo skin. It can get a little dry around my nose but can easily become oily if I use a moisturizer that is too thick. I get the occasional pimple but my main concern is evening out my skin tone. I am a super pale lady and have pink/red undertones. I was just wondering what products/lines everyone has had success with? Both Sephora & drugstore recommendations welcome. I also know there are a TON of skincare products out there, and which ones you think are a necessity? Thanks!!
My mother is about to hit 50. She looks great for her age, but I'm starting to notice she has very bad bags and deep wrinkles under her eyes. Can someone tell me anything they have used that actually works a can reduce wrinkles for older women ? Also what she can use to help firm her skin?
I'd like to put my toner or treatment liquid into a spray bottle -- I love the ease of application and that I don't get it on my hands/fingers if I spray (I have eczema and my hands are really sensitive). I haven't found one I love that COMES in a bottle (though I have had some that do), so I 'd like to just put my favorites into a sprayer. I just ordered a Sephora atomizer to see if it might work. http://www.sephora.com/silver-universal-atomizer-P 303342?skuId=1377308 THe problem I've had in the past trying to use a travel spray bottle, or refill an old bottle is that many the pump seems to stop working immediately when I put in a new product. Maybe some products just don't work with a spray bottle even though they are just clear liquids, not oily, etc? What do you think? Any recommendations, any info on why this would or wouldn't work, or success stories!?
I have been using Soap and Glory Face Soap and Clarity for some time now, but it apparently is not going to be sold by Sephora anymore and there appears to be no where else to buy it. I really liked it because it cleared any acne scars and red marks I had on my face. Does anyone know of a similar product that you have tired and like? Thanks
Is REN Hydra-Calm Cleansing Milk permanently gone? I just got turned on to this great product that was in my blitz bag. I have it in my cart and it said it was out of stock. When I clicked on it, there is no product at all and looks like Sephora will no longer carry it. Is this true or will it come back?
The roller coaster weather in NYC has destroyed my face! It feels dry and flaky. It's like a lumberjack's hands. I think I might have over-exfoliated (Goldfaden MD Doctor's Scrub), but when I do that, my skin isn't raw, the pores get irritated and puff up. I usually have normal skin. I am scared of over-moisturizing as I get milia. I've been using Boscia clarifying cleanser and Body Shop Vitamin E moisturizer for the last few days, but it's not helping. Any advice on what to use? Harsh or gentle exfoliator? Should I do a coconut oil mask?
After spending excessive time on my make up and hair this morning ( just for fun!) my husband brought home some bad news...which sent me into a terrible fit of excessive tears...and when I looked in the mirror a while later...I noticed not a smidgen of my eye make up had moved. Yay for tear proof UD, Smashbox and too faced! (And don't worry... I think everything will be okay after all!)
I've been looking for a good eyecream for a while, but can't seem to settle on one.. I'm looking for something effective, free of alcohol and parabens (if some companies actually put parabens in eyecreams), and "nicely priced" (not something that cost $100 or above..) I noticed that I started having fine lines under my eyes.. and I'm only 22.. which has become a bit of a concern for me.. I've used PTR laser free (which has alcohol in them), and a few organic ones that doesn't seem to do anything.. It doesn't have to be from Sephora.. could someone give me some suggestions?
Are there any really good, reliable Retinoid and Hydroquinone products that won't make my skin flake and peel? I have noticed that the retinoids, no matter what, usually make me peel like I'm getting over a sunburn. I usually only apply a thin layer once a day (at night before bed), but even that seems to be a bit much.
I have been using Cetaphil cleanser for over a month with no problem, however, now when I put it on my skin, it starts to burn. So I am thinking about switching to something more simpler. I was looking at the Koh De Gen cleansing water, or any suggestions you guys have!
looking for an anit-aging daily skin regime. i am 41 with normal sensitive skin. i am started to show signs of aging around eyes and upper lip area. i currently use origins cleanser and philosophy cleanser with a clarisonic. i also use philosophy day and night moisturizer which i am not impressed with. any suggestions? opinions on korres and origins line.
Hi everyone, I feel like I have tried so many products so now I want to get your opinion! First, I'm 26 with oily skin. My biggest concern are wrinkles. I'm starting to get the fine lines around the mouth. I don't use retinal because I think my skin is too sensitive for it. I've seen a lot of recommendations for OLE HENRIKSEN Truth Serum Vitamin C Collagen Booster but I didn't see much of an effect on me. My other major concern is clear skin. Lately, I've been noticing I have small bumps all over my face - I'm sure my day/night moisturizer has something to do with this so I think if I get a good moisturizer, this will go away. I have tried different lines from Shiseido, Amore Pacific, Ole Henriksen, Korres and Murad. My current line that I'm trying is Origins. I like to keep my regime minimal so ideally I could get a night cream with anti-aging effects instead of using a serum + moisturizer. I'm mainly looking for a night moisturizer but I am very open to other recommendations for day creams and cleansers. Thank you!!
