PTR unwrinkle peel pads replacement?
Hello It seems the PTR Un-Wrinkle Peel Pads are no longer available on the Canadian Sephora website! I recently started using them and am in love - already my skin seems more even-toned and it really seems to help my skincare products get better absorbed.   Does anyone have any recommendations for something similar? I'm going to stop by a Sephora store when I get a chance and see if they still carry it there, but I prefer to do my shopping online Thanks <3

Any product suggestions for ice pick scars - not involving lasers?
Hi I had some deep scarring on my cheeks (that everyone knows no amount of make up can cover!) - these have lessened with laser treatments. But with some residual scarring still left, wanted to know if anyone can recommend (EFFECTIVE) products to lessen scarring.

Skin Care Recomendations- Dry/Oily Acne Prone
Just a bit of a back story- I have oily acne prone skin. After months of experimenting with skincare products I  finally was able to clear up most of the acne. For a month I had the best skin of my life, it was hydrated and not super oily with the occasional pimple that I could get rid of in 2 days.   A while ago I got the deluxe sample of the Sunday Riley Luna Sleeping Oil. I started using the night I received it. I used it for about 5 days and I noticed that the area on the sides of my nose had a dry patch on both sides. I could tell because my foundation would cling to that area and it didnt look smooth anymore, my face had texture where I didnt have it before. By the 7th day for the first time ever my skin felt dry and tight, even after I moisturized. I could apply enough moisturizer, my skin would just soak it up. Apart from being dry it would still get oily in my tzone through out the day.     I realized that the Luna sleeping oil was the only thing that I had really changed in my routine and stopped using immediately. My skin has not been able to recover since. It doesnt feel tight but it still looks very dry and it showed when I applied makeup. My foundation clings and cracks on the sides of where nostrils are and looks really dry. The texture really never disappeared but it did subside a bit. I increased my water intake and stop using a bunch of my acne products that would dry out my skin in hopes of it helping, but I cant seem to get it to the state it was before.    Did this happen to anyone else using luna oil??   What are some product recomendations for people with dehydrated/oily/acne prone skin?

best products to help even out acne prone sensitive skin
Hello. I have an oily skin and for the past few months had a lot of breakouts. I went to a dermatologist and took a treatment which helped me greatly. Now that my skin has got rid of most of the acne and blackheads I have some acne marks and hyper pigmentation which I would like to treat now. However, as I have been struggling against those breakouts for the past few months I am being very skeptical of many products as I am scared they might break me out again. I need something that will help even my skin tone and texture. The price of the product is not an issue as long as I am sure It will help with the hyper pigmentation(post acne marks, slightly uneven skin tone, and some freckles on my T zone) and also fight against future breakouts. I would like anti acne products, serums, cleansers that're dermatology tested and clinically proved to work. Would appreciate any kind of advise and recommendations.

3 Weeks in China - What skin products are a must?
Hi all,   I'm going to China for three week in October and I know that the smog and air is going to do a number on my skin. Does anyone have any skin products that you know can combat smog?

Fine line help!? Late 20s
Hello! So I am in my late 20s and have more fine lines on my forehead/around my eyes then I would like (and more than my peers). I have normal skin with some dryness around my eyes and I tend to have sensitive skins (there are a few companies I can't even use because my skin freaks out and I get a huge rash all over my face- none from sephora yet) anyway, I am trying to find a product that will help with the fine lines without making my skin freak out. I loved the sample I had of the Sunday Riley eye cream (and I think it works wonders) but it made my skin feel like it was burning after a few days. Right now I use the tarte vitamin c eye cream and I like it for my dark circles okay but I'm not attached to it. Any suggestions would be wonderful (serums, creams, cleansers- anything) (I've also tried FAB eye products, 2 clique serums & the philosophy hope is not enough) Currently I use FAB as my regular skin routine w/ the tarte eye cream & maracuja oil @ night around my eyes as well to help with the dryness.  Thanks!

T-Zone Dryness?
I have super dry and sensitive skin! My face is most dry/peely in the areas where it really should be oily, like my nose and forehead/ t-zone. I have honestly tried everything. I have used Clinique products, the First Aid Beauty face wash/moisturizer, Fresh soy face cleanser and the youth lotus lotion. Ive tried the Josie Maran creamy oil moisturizer as well as tons of other stuff from sephora and the drug store.   I use a cleansing water every morning and wash my face at night & moisturize 2x a day. I typically exfoliate once or twice a week with a powder like exfoliator from Boscia. My skin is still dry and peely around my nose forehead and chin all year long and I'm so frustrated. If anyone can recommend any products to help, that would be awesome. I can't really wear foundation or anything without it sticking to my dry patches and looking awful.

Advice on Skincare!
So, when I was growing up I never washed my face and as a teenager I rarely had breakouts. When I did it would be one here or there, and never really became a problem. The older I got, and the more skin conscious I became, I noticed that my skin was always oily with really big pores and MANY (not being self conscious) dark pores on my nose. After getting sick of my ugly skin, I decided to start washing my face and soon after started my break outs. I have tried a lot of different things, mostly the cheaper Wal-Mart brands but a few clinique products etc, everything made me break out worse. The only thing that has allowed me to be able to wash my face is Pro-Activ. I also can't use any make-up removers, regular soap, or really anything on my skin. Make-up also causes worse break outs. The only thing I have found that allows me to remove make-up without making my skin break out is almond oil. I haven't been to a dermatologist as doctors and hospitals/clinics freak me out so I would prefer not to go if I don't have to. Does anyone know what might be causing my problem and what product might best suit my skin?

Juicing for Clear Skin (and Health)
I've seen several individuals recently mention that juicing has helped their skin.  I was wondering if anyone would like to share recipes and/or recommendations as far as what has worked for them.  I'm also really curious about how much  to drink each day.   I've had a NutriBullet for about 6 months and I've been off and on about using it.  I was really good in January then fell off the wagon.  Over the next week I'm really hoping to get into the habit of juicing every day and eating healthier.  I'm off work four days next week, so I thought it would be a good time to concentrate on starting some healthful habits.   Thanks!
