SKINCARE HGs !
i've seen this type of question asked more generally, but i wanted to ask it specific to skincare. not only is it interesting to see what has really worked for people, but it'll maybe highlight some products others are interested in trying !   so: what are specific  products that would cause you to hyperventilate were you to run out ?   mine currently are: CLINIQUE take the day off cleansing balm FIRST AID BEAUTY facial radiance pads CAUDALIE beauty elixir AVEDA botanical kinetics hydrating face lotion edited to add: CAUDALIE vinoperfect enzymatic peel mask MURAD essential-c toner i have steps that i would never skip that are not represented in the above list, but the products i use for those steps tend to be more interchangeable.   additionally, a couple products that may reach HG status soon, but need a bit more time in my rotation: FIRST AID BEAUTY skin rescue purifying mask w/ red clay CLARINS blue orchid facial oil CAUDALIE vinosource s.o.s. thirst quenching serum

PORES!!!!
I have a dry face, but sometimes my nose gets oily. None of my parents has large pores, but I do. I have them on cheek near my nose... maybe it's because I rubbed my face a lot..? Every skin care products I've found is for oily faces. So.. any good ones for dry skin?

Clairsonic Mia 3 vs Mia 2
Hi Ladies,    I need some help in deciding with Clairsonic to get. I've narrowed it down to either the Mia 2 or 3 and I can't seem to decide between the two. I'm really liking the holiday sets that are out.    A little about me: I have normal/combo skin, not acne prone or anything. My t-zone can get a little oily. I've been using Clinique's 3 Step # 2 for the past 10 years or so and I've been happy with it, but I think its time to add some deeper cleaning/exfoliating.   Is the Mia 3 with the Cashmere Brush Head worth the extra $50?  The  Mia 2 Hydra Cleanse Set comes with 2 brush heads - is that a better buy? I'm in Canada, so the prices I've noted are higher than the US prices.   $230 Mia 3 Holiday Gift Set Comes with: - White Mia 3/Aria  - Clarisonic Lux Cashmere Cleanse Brush Head  - Drying stand  - USB Enabled Universal Voltage pLink® Charger  - 1 oz Clarisonic Gentle Hydro Cleanser  - 0.1 oz Amorepacific Moisture Bound Rejuvenating Eye Treatment Gel  - 0.5 oz Caudalie Premier Cru The Cream  - 0.23 oz Algenist Advanced Anti-Aging Repairing Oil  - 5 Dr. Dennis Gross Skincare™ Alpha Beta® Peels, Original Formula    $180 Mia 2 Glow Holiday Set: - Joy Mia 2  - Sensitive Brush Head  - Protective Travel Case  - Universal Voltage pLink® Charger  - 3 oz Philosophy® Purity Made Simple Cleanser  - 0.5 oz Ole Henriksen Truth Serum® Collagen Booster  - 0.17 Bliss® Triple Oxygen® ex-'glow'-sion! Vitabead-infused moisture cream  - 4 Kate Somerville® Somerville360® Face Self Tanning Pad   $180 Mia 2 Winter Hydration Set: - Mia2™ Cleansing Brush  - 0.5 oz GLAMGLOW THIRSTYMUD™ Hydrating Treatment  - 2.0 oz First Aid Beauty Ultra Repair Cream  - 5 oz Boscia Purifying Cleansing Gel  - International pLink Charger for worldwide use      $180 Mia 2 Hydra Cleanse Set - Mia2™ Sonic Skin Cleansing Brush in Lavender  - Luxe Contour Brush Head - Satin Precision  - Luxe Facial Brush Head - Cashmere Cleanse  - 6 oz Gentle Hydro Cleanser  - International pLink Charger for worldwide use  - Protective travel case   I appreciate any help and opinions.

How do I know if my product was opened and used?
I just bought the too faced better than sex mascara from a sephora store today. it seemed untouched in the packaging. The thing is, I had gone to the counter with other products and asked the lady and the register if they had more of these mascaras in stock, because there were no more on the shelves. she disappeared and returned with the mascara. it took her a little while, i could be being paranoid. anyway, im assuming she took one out of the storage units they have under the display. when i came home and opened it, it felt really light. i'm wondering if i was given a mascara that was already used? perhaps even the sample mascara? i'm not sure. there was also a red mark (kind of looks like paint/marker) on it, that won't come off. but that might just be a manufacturing defect. also, the package on the outside seemed pretty sound though. i ripped the top flap when i tried to open it, cause it was hard to unbox. does anyone know if i should go and return it for a new one?

Homemade Toners?
I've been reading up a lot about toners and DIY cucumber / green tea toners.   I just wanted to hear some personal reviews if anyone's tried it/what they think/ effectiveness.   They sound really nice to be. It's all natural/cheap. It does go bad after a few days so I read that refrigerating it would not only feel refreshing on the face but last a little bit longer. But even tossing it isn't a big deal since all the ingredients are really cheap to come by.    Also if substituting a lemon for a lime would be okay?

Q. Skin Care Help
Hi everyone! So I'm basically looking for the whole nine yards at this point. I've been content with my current and past cleansers and moisturizers but lately I've been feeling like my skin has almost started regressing? It looks like it could use some change so I'm open to all suggestions! Here's a few concerns I'd like to address for sure. but like i said WHOLE NINE YARDS   Trouble Areas: -OILY TO COMBO SKIN-for the most part my skin is more on the oily side, however i noticed my skin tends to dry up around my eyebrows and mouth (don't know why those areas but that's it)   -BLACKHEADS-hate them, have them. I feel like sometimes they are just so huge that its taking over my face & honestly makes me feel self conscious (which no one wants to feel) Currently using Biore black head strips & they work well for the most part, but I feel like there is more i can do to make them go away or at least be less noticeable    -BRIGHTEN/EVEN SKIN TONE-I think i have pretty even skin tone, however sometimes i do get blemishes or redness on my face, also I feel like my skin is looking dull, so I'm looking for something to brighten it.   Thanks i advance ! & remember the WHOLE NINE YARDS!(:

The Non Joys of Pregnancy.
   Its such a blessing to see that positive symbol on your test when you've been trying to conceive.  For weeks you glow - mostly due to "morning" (All-day) sickness.     Now with the lovely changes my skins seems to have jumped back to the land of a teenager. SPOTS everywhere. On my chest and face and gosh does it make you feel un attractive.    I had terrible acne in high school and happily in my early twenties this calmed down.   I tried using clean and clear which seemed to aggravate the situation to a while new level.   I don't enjoy caking on makeup but lately it helps me just get out the door - - Any suggestions on getting my skin back to some normality?

Regime for sensitive sun damaged skin suggestions.
I am in my mid 30s and have very sensitive, fair skin.  At one  point years ago I got a terrible sunburn and it has left its mark inn my nose and especially my cheeks leaving them bright pink at all times.     My my skin tends to be  on the dry side with beginning fine lines. I do get dark eye circles if I do not use an eye cream.when I stay away from irritants I have no blemishes with the exception of hormone induced ones.  I can not use retinol, it is too harsh and I scab from it.     I have found that that dior products work very well with my skin chemistry.  I do not itch and they have a calming effect.  I am currently using hydra life  with essential one first  ( and mask) but an planing on switching to capture total when I run out now that I am hydrated  I always use sunscreen now! Are there other products that my be better to use or to use along with to help reduce the redness.  I have tried the Clinique redness reducing line and that inflamed my skin within minutes...   what at other masks and/ or peeks would be good to try?

Anti Wrinkle/Anti Acne
I'm looking for advice on preventing wrinkles, while not causing more acne. I have oily/combination skin and get acne frequently (3-5 pimples per week), but am starting to develop slight wrinkles on my forehead (I know, there are worse things happening in the world!). I would like to begin treating/preventing wrinkles before they advance, but assume most aging products are for women with dry, mature skin.

Have Some Questions "Real Quick Plse" a/b theBalm
Hey Guy's & Doll's, I have a question about a cpl of theBalm face washes. I bought the radiance pad's from FAB like suggested but thought I could maybe add a face wash for my PORE CRISIS !   Can anyone PLEASE tell me real quick which 1 would be the best  for my Clogged Pores on Nose & in General : 1. Rose Face Cleanser - Normal to Dry Skin 2.  Lavender Foaming Face Cleanser - All skin types 3. Coconut Milk Cleansing Face Cream - Norm. to  dry 4. Rose Face Cleanser - Normal to Combination Skin   #1 & #4 are the same for targeted treatments : Rose Face Cleanser for normal to combination skin will gently exfoliate the skin with glycolic and alpha hydroxy acids, while removing makeup and impurities. In addition to the numerous well known benefits of the glycolic and alpha hydroxy acids, the gel texture of this cleanser leaves the pores feeling refreshed and tight .   #2 Lavender Foaming Facial Cleanser is effective and non-drying. Soy proteins nourish by providing depleted skin with a rich source of mineral salts, amino acids and peptides   #3 TimeBalm Coconut Milk Face Cleansing Cream gently removes dirt and makeup that is trapped in the pores, without stripping your skin of its natural nutrients and moisture. Lactic acid works to polish the dull outer layers of the skin.

Skin Care Regimen for oily, post-acne skin?
What are a few awesome products from Sephora for a complete   skin care regimen to help someone with post-acne scars/discoloration or dark spots/oily skin in order to brighten up and even out the skin's tone and texture?   I don't get acne anytime during the month EXCEPT when it's "that time" of the month, so that is not my main concern. It's more about the acne I had when I was younger and the discoloration and unevenness it has left on my skin. Just looking for something to brighten, even out, and smooth my skin out!   I'm thinking exfoliator, peel, moisturizer, cleanser? Thoughts? Thank you!
