Hello friends! I am always curious to know what people's skincare regimes are; how can a skincare fanatic not want to see what other people are using! My skin is very strange, it is combination (very) oily, dehydrated, and acne prone along with reactive to various products. Without further ado, here is my current skincare routine! Morning: Cleanse - Fresh Soy Face Cleanser Tone - FAB Facial Radiance Pads Hydratation Tone - 100% Pure Rose Water Serum - Peter Thomas Roth Viz 1000 Hydrating Serum Moisturize - Fresh Rose Hydrating Gel Eye Cream - Fresh Lotus Eye Gel Night: Cleanse - Fresh Soy Face Cleanser Tone - FAB Facial Radiance Pads Hydratation Tone - 100% Pure Rose Water Treat - Kielhs Midnight Recovery Concentrate ** My nose is very breakout prone, so I do not apply any product to it during the day and use a prescription topical acne medication on it every night to stop the clogged pores ** Lips - Nuxe Reve de Miel Lip Balm Specific Days SUNDAY Shave Exfoliate - Clinique Face Scrub (Mens line) TUESDAY Glamglow Supermud Mask WEDNESDAY Shave SATURDAY Glamglow Powermud Mask And there you have it! My wonderful, yet crazy, skincare regime! I am EXTREMELY interested in seeing what your skincare regime is as I am new to the Advice Talks! I definitely look forward to seeing the different combinations of products and also looking to see what other products I could potentially use! I love Skincare! It's the best! Michael, xo
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.
I know that Sephora doesn't sell Illamasqua anymore, Nordstrom never has, and now I see that it is no longer on Bloomingdales website. Does anyone know where Illamasqua can be found in the States? I am definitely not paying international shipping from the UK.
Dear All, Since I turned 40 I have been hyper sensitive about my uneven and oftentimes dull skin tone. As I have 6 children (who all bring their friends inside) + an 18 year old au pair (with perfect youthful skin), I can no longer bear to reveal my bare facial skin in the house. I have tried several Loreal options, but none seem to have the coverage/glow giving properties I desire (they do however work miracles for my teenage daughters). I've also tried Clinique's CC cream, but my under eyes still look dark, which is incredibly ageing; similar story with Estee Lauder's CC Cream. I love Estee Lauders Double Wear All Day Glow BB Cream for going out in the warmer months, but would ideally like something better priced for the house ... Any ideas? Do any of you wear a base in the house?
So I was looking online and came across a few articles on Manuka Honey and how it's supposed to be really great for your skin. I was wondering if anyone has actually tried using it whether as a spot treatment, mask or face wash. And if so, how did it work for you? I bought some online and I'm still waiting for it to arrive but I was just curious if others have tried this.
What's the best moisturizer for oily acne prone skin? I'm 23 and still get breakouts here and there. I usually wear Olay SPF 15 moisturizer under all my foundations and the all seem to be oxidizing on my face after a few hours.. Not sure if it's the moisturizer causing this or the foundation.. Currently, I'm trying out UD Naked skin and it seems to be breaking me out. I have used Hourglass Immaculate but I found it a little dry. Possibly looking into Estee Lauder Double Wear Light.. Not a makeup guru but if anyone has suggestions on foundations or moisturizer that would really help me.
I have oily skin and I've used so many products for my face such as the garnier bb cream, benefit oxygen wow foundation, laura mercier tinted moustrizer, mac mineral moisture and maybelline dream mousse. So far, I liked the tinted moisturizer the best, but I want to try something new. I've never tried a powder, but I've heard the tarte loose powder is good. Is anyone willing to give me other examples, preferably a foundation, tinted moisturzer, bb or cc cream that is oil free, very natural and not too expensive?
A month ago I posted about how I'm searching for new skincare products since basically all of mine either had or were about to run out. The suggestions were SUPER helpful, and I've implemented some of them since then. I was able to pick up a small tube of my regular moisturizer (Clinique Dramatically Different Gel) so I could continue with that and just focus on finding a new cleanser. I'm still using the Korres Wild Rose at night. No toner since it's all gone. And I'm only using my Clarisonic twice a week now, and the Korres Pomegranate scrub once a week. (And I've been using these for a while now.) As for cleanser, I've been using some different samples lately (deluxe, so I could use them for a longer period of time - Ren Evercalm Gentle Cleansing Milk, Origins Checks and Balances, and now Philosophy Purity Made Simple.) My skin doesn't feel "off" when cleaning - it feels fresh? It feels much better with moisturizer, but it isn't uncomfortable if I don't use any (and that only happens very rarely.) I've been paying more attention to my skin lately and I'm wondering if maybe it ISN'T oily, after all?! I'm really only getting oily on my forehead & nose lately. And even then it isn't too bad. My cheeks don't really get oily. In the morning, it just seems to be my nose that is oily and I suspect that has something to do with using the Wild Rose cream at night. If I'm consistent with cleansing/moisturizing, my skin doesn't really get any dry patches, though. Although my chin can be a little iffy (that's where I tend to get blackheads/breakouts). I started breaking out after using the Ren for a week, and that's continued with the Philosophy one too. Any thoughts or suggestions? I'd like to find something I can use consistently, but I've thought I had oily skin for so long and now that I'm not sure, it feels overwhelming and I'm unsure of what to look for! ETA: My skin is also a bit uneven with freckles/discoloration. I like my freckles, and I know sunscreen is important with this. But I just want to keep my skin healthy.

My skin is extremely oily.. I have been wearing NARS SHeer glow foundation & I realized it was for dry skin.. (I was in a rush when I ordered) my face is FAR from dry & it's been breaking out horribly since wearing the sheer glow.i don't know a lot about foundations, I used Clinique powder only for years.. I'm 20. I really need some advice on the best foundation (long wearing) and concealer. Also facial wash suggestions would be great too!! Thanks so much!! -sincerely, someone who knows nothing about makeup!!
Hello! I have a question for those of you who have been to a dermatologist. Do they have some sort of skincare ingredient testing? For example, would they be able to say, You're allergic to Titanium Dioxide and Niacinamide. Or would they just say, You have sensitive skin. Avoid x, y and z. It seems like everything I try, even if the product says it's for sensitive skin, I break out in red spots/bumps which I assume are from allergic irritation. When I stop using the product, the bumps go away. The two products that I've been trying to look for are a moisturizer with SPF higher than 15 and something to lessen post acne marks. It has not been a simple task! Any insight or info would be so appreciated! Thanks.
I have a few small broken capillaries/spider veins on my face, which I blame mostly because of daily exfoliation with my Clarisonic. I've pretty much stopped using the Clarisonic for 2 months now, but I was wondering if there's anything else I can be doing to help get rid of or minimize them without using concealer or laser. Thanks!
I use Clinique dramatically different moisturizer. I also use the gel on days my skin isn't needing something more moisturizing. I am currently working my way towards more natural products with less chemicals. I recently moved towards using tart makeup and eye shadows. Now I'm looking for a moisturizer. Any suggestions?

Need help with skin! My face is very dry, acne prone, terrible clogged pores and sensitive to benzoyl peroxide and salicylic acid. I'm in my late 20's and my skin is the worst that it has ever been. I have used many top of the line products and don't know what to do! Any advice appreciated!
Hi Ladies! So sometimes my skin just gets a little itchy or irritated, and I start scratching at it without thinking. Obviously this is bad, especially as I have oily and acne-prone skin. Any suggestions for something to calm the face down? I have combo skin, leaning towards oily as the day goes on. I'd prefer something affordable but am open to all suggestions. Thanks!
I need suggestion good suggestion for face oil that can be used for massage. An oil that helps get rid of wrinkle or is anti-aging with whitening benefits?? Just any oil is fine and I know how to massage so don't trouble yourself with that Thank you!
Hello ladies and gents, I have been looking for a good face mask. I suffer from acne on certain parts of my face. Lately I've been using benzoyl peroxide products (5%) alongside my Murad Intensive C Radiance Peel, which I've found is helping. It seems i have some deep blackheads and other gunk that I've found it difficult to treat and draw out though. Would Glamglow be a good product to use for this purpose? Or is it an overhyped product and if so, is there anything else that you would recommend??
