I went recently on vacation with a couple of friends so we got plenty of time to discuss our makeup and skin care routines. I found out one of them uses rubbing alcohol directly on her face after cleansing and my other friend I were quite shocked to be honest but she shut us up and told us it works amazingly for her skin and if she doesn’t use it, she breaks out terribly. I’d like to explain to her that is bad for her skin but I don’t know how so I’m asking you lovely BTers for a little help. Thanks in advance, Yackie.
What order (if there is one) is a skin care regimen supposed to go? My current regimen consists of face wash, toning pads, and a moisturizer. I was thinking about adding a serum to target some other problems I am having but am not sure where to squeeze them in at? I also wanted to know if anyone could recommend a daily face wash that can help keep my face clear. Its needed a little more love recently. I don't think I need an acne cleanser, I was thinking a "clearing" cleanser. If there's a difference? Thanks in advance!
Hi everyone! I'm nearing my 30's and while I take great care of my skin (began the past few years) I am interested in knowing your go to beauty products and routines that you use to prevent and reduce lines, wrinkles, etc. I gave up the tanning beds 2 years and use sunblock now, moisturize morning and night, use homemade masks about once a month, etc. I'm noticing those pesky crows feet making themselves at home and my skin is just not as firm as it once was. My goal is to take action now so as I age I will age gracefully! Thanks!
i have questions about my skin problem. my skin is really sensitive, have a lot of blackheads recently, and sometimes its also breakout. i want to change my daily cleanser from Clinique to Glamglow Supercleanse Daily Cleanser. I did some research and i found out that Boscia Detoxifying Black Cleanser seems great too. Can please someone tell me which one is better between Glamglow and Boscia for my skin type??? i also have some acne scar on my right cheek. If there is any daily cleanser that could reduce the acne that would be really greattt.
I have had this horrible dry skin around my nose for about a year. I moisturize day and night and I put Vaseline on it before I go to bed. It never seems to go away. Does any body have any recommendations? I use the Kat Von D tattoo foundation and I love it, but it makes my dry skin look really bad. Is there a full coverage foundation that would work well with dry skin? Thanks!
I am in my upper 30s. I have alot of crows feet which extend down to my upper cheek when I smile. I am going to the nearest Sephora next weekend and would like to know what I should get to treat & conceal. I have dry skin, can someone give me some advice on the Laura Mercier Smooth Finish Flawless Fluide? Thanks.
What is a good skincare routine for combination skin that won't dry out the skin too much, or keep the skin oily, but just keep it hydrated and glowing? What steps should I take in order to have a hydrated and glowing skin? Product recommendations (nothing extremely high end that is hard to afford) I wouldn't mind, but I want suggestions at the same time for the steps to reach that point. Hope that makes sense.
I have a lot of blackheads on my forehead, nose and a few on my chin. I've tried a lot, but I can't seem to get rid of them! Is there a mask, cleanser or anything else I can try to make them disappear? I recently bought the clarisonic mia and I'm using it with philosophys purity made simple. It has helped a little, but I want these blackheads to be gone!
For as long as I can remember I've had puffy under eyes. I don't really have issues with dark circles as much as general puffiness. I know it doesn't help that I tend to pound water right before I go to sleep - something I've been doing since I was very little. So I'm willing to accept what that creates but would love any ideas or products that can quickly eliminate under eye puffiness and tighten that skin back up.
Oddly, I received an email shortly after I had commented in a post about how I wasn't that concerned about not having receiving anything free from Sephora. I noted that, although it would certainly be neat to get a free thing, I certainly was not upset about not getting any. Seriously no biggie. Then I got an email that i would be receiving a Free Thing! I don't have a big wrinkle problem (silver lining to oily skin), but at age 41 I do have a few small wrinkles I'd like to address. I just wish I could use it under my eyes!
Hello, So this morning when I went to apply my eye primer I noticed my lids and the inner corner of my eyes near my nose we're dry and slightly flaky. I opted to use my Algenist Eye Cream on my lids very small amount and put my primer over top. It seems to work, now I was wondering what can I do to fix this dryness issue as I know you really shouldn't use eye cream on the lids due to the skin being so thin ?. I only did this today but if you got a quick remedy that would be great.
I've been using Philosophy products religiously and my skins has cleared and the tone evened out (30 y/o .. starting to see fine lines, etc). However, I've recently moved back to Texas and I'm feeling extra dry. I've tried the Glam Glow to boost moisture, but still having issues. I know it's been asked a million times.. but any suggestions for an ultra hydrating mask? Thanks!
I have oily skin prone to cystic acne that results in scarring. Unfortunately my skin is also sensitive to certain products causing breakouts (like shampoo) just looking for thoughts if you think a clarisonic could help? Thanks in advance!!
I am 15 years old and I recently bought the foundation, am I too young to be wearing foundation ? Is the foundation non-comedogenic? My mom has told me that foundations can make the skin age faster, is that true ? I am worrying because the foundation is quite pricy and I'm hoping that there won't be any regrets. Also, Would it work if I were to mix it with moisturizer to turn it into a tinted moisturizer? As for additional information, My skin is quite oily (especially the T-Zone, oh boy) and have a few acne spots and pimples here and there. Thank you
I'm in my 20's, and decided to start using an eye cream to help my dark circles under my eyes and help revitalize elasticity and prevent wrinkles. I have fair skin, so the sun takes a toll on the most delicate parts of my skin, and I want to start using an eye cream now to help. I've been looking at eye creams like these that Sephora recommended via the filters. http://www.sephora.com/miracle-worker-retinoid-eye -repair-cream-P377330?skuId=1482546 http://www.sephora.com/hypoallergenic-firming-eye- cream-P294204?skuId=1366814 http://www.sephora.com/bio-performance-super-corre ctive-eye-cream-P378348?skuId=1507631 http://www.sephora.com/plantscription-tm-anti-agin g-power-eye-cream-P394702?skuId=1675206 http://www.sephora.com/lift-lighten-eye-cream-P783 25?skuId=945337 Any suggestions?
Every time I put on BB cream it immediately makes my skin incredibly flaky. I've even tried putting on moisturizer first or mixing the BB with some of my moisturizer and ten minutes after applying I'm a flaky mess. My moisturizer works fine and I'm not dry after applying it, it's any kind of coverage that's drying me up. Im using the Smashbox BB currently and have no idea what to do! The attached photos is after applying.
I am in search of a cleanser (and possibly a treatment) for acne/blemishes. I am one month post partum so I believe my breakouts (mainly on my chin/jawline) are primarily due to hormones and lack of sleep. I have also been put on a hormone that increases the production of sebum and causes skin to swell causing build up beneath the surface = large blemishes. Currently using Philosophy's Microdelivery Exfoliating Wash. Would like to use a second cleanser to treat acne/blemishes one time a day. Have rosacea so I have to be a little careful. Recommendations please!:-)
Has anyone else seen the VIB Event on Thursday, April 16th? It's basically the same as the brunch...just without brunch. This is starting to frustrate me. There is no point to Rouge if it's going to be the same as VIB. There has yet to be anything worthwhile about the Rouge program since January.
i had a treatment for my broken capillaries on my skin so now I'm afraid to exfoliate... What is a gentle exfoliant? can I just use my clarisonic? Is the fresh soy exfoliant considered gentle? I still have some left to use up. thanks!
