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.
This is a place to discuss everything skincare. - Have a question about a product (Or type of product) - Need recommendations - Learned a new tip or trick you want to share with fellow skincare junkies - New to skincare and lost about where to start - Have a skincare emergency ( Bad reaction, broken dropper, lost lid of a jar) Images From top left to clockwise (Essencz, Garnier, Men's Fitness, Harper Bazaar) We have some great thread about skincare but I feel we don't have a general place to discuss skincare which is open for everything from lowend products to luxury skincare.

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!

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?
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.
It's the time of year where everyone wants that beautiful sun kissed glow. Thankfully we have a wide range of good quality self tanners available to us now so we are not exposed to harmful rays. What is your favorite self tanner and why? Share any helpful tips on application, what not to do and any funny stories you'd like to share.
Does anyone know if Sunday Riley has discontinued its Bionic cream? It's no longer showing on Sephora website or at most other websites. This is the first anti-aging type cream with bells and whistles that I've been able to use without any reactions. Can a mod pipe in and confirm?
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
I have tried everything under the sun! I just want a really strong, extremely moisturizing eye cream that contains no sulfates, parabens, or frangrances and is ok for sensitive skin! the only thing that has kind of worked on me is burts bee's honey chapstick and olive oil....imagine that every day and trying to wear makeup and not look like you were punched in the face! I know I'm sadly not the only one suffering, please share any tips or tricks for relief and I will owe you for life! Thanks ladies Spoiler (Highlight to read)
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
I have fairly bad acne. I always get large cystic spots and it takes forever to go away. I'm looking for more of a high end brand that'll hopefully not only help with acne, but help with anti aging/ overall skincare and as strange as it is I like when it looks pretty on my counter Any suggestions (I was thinking "rose" by the fresh line but it seems more for moisturizing rather than acne).
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.
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?
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
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
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, Im looking to acne scars products that will work for acnes also, I have combo/oily skin , I have been getting so much breakouts recently and hyperpigmentation os horrible. I got it in control last yr. I was using a prescription topical cream 1% which is Adapalene, Im still using it now but i noticed its not working the same. I have been using Caudalie Vinoperfect Serum. I tried the Philosphy Microdelivery peel and it ripped my face off so I discontinued it. Then I tried the First aide Radiance Pads, i dont know if its working yet I only started using it 4days ago. By the wat I was using Glytone Brightening peel but it just too strong for my skin. So ive been in search for more than a year now. Please advice! Thank u!
I didn't have acne as a teenager, a few pimples here and there. Now I'm in my 20s and am struggling with acne (fml) I have tons of scars now and I'm wondering if anyone has suggestions for products that will reduce the appearance of these scars. Or any preventative measures!
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 Any recommendations for puffy red/black under eye circles? 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...
