Q. Oily Skin
I used to have dry patches and oily skin, but I've switched to using Belif The True Cream Aqua Bomb, May Coop Raw Sauce, Son & Park Beauty Water, and I use St Ives Blemish Control Apricot Scrub as a cleanser. My skin has stopped being dry, but it's still oily. It's not as oily as it used to be but I really want to find a way or product(s) that would help my face not be so oily or shiny during the day. Also, I don't wear makeup.

Q. Kate Somerville Product Question
I've been maintaining my complexion with ProActiv which has done wonders for my skin.  Recently though, I will get flare ups and my face will still break out with stubborn acne that I can't get rid of for days or weeks using ProActiv and other spot treatments.  I was wondering which Kate Somerville product would be best for acne prone/oily skin: The Detox daily cleanser or the Eradikate mark foam-activated treatment?

Q. BarePro and Itching?
I've been using BareMinerals BarePro powder foundation for a few weeks now. Unfortunately, it's itchy and makes my skin feel tight. I'm not sure if it's the combination of the products I'm using or the BarePro itself that's irritating my skin but I really love this foundation and want to make it work. Here's my morning make up/skin care routine. - Cleanse with FAB's pure cleanser (morning and night) - Tone with Jurlique's rosewater spray (morning and night) - Moisturize with L'Octaine light moisturizer (morning and night) - Prime with BareMineral's original primer - Buff on BarePro - Buff on BareMineral's original Mineral Veil - Finish with Urban Decay's chill setting spray   What do y'all think? Is it the foundation I'm using or the primer?

Q. I've had Oily skin my whole life. Now I'm starting to have combo of oily and dry - HELP!!
I'm 21 years old and have had oily skin - no doubt in the world that my face is an oil slick. Within the last year I have noticed my skin starting to have dry areas as well as oil patches. I have no idea if this is how my skin has developed or I'm using products that are just making me dry. I have only had a handful on instances in which a product managed to make me dry.   Any suggestions on what skin care/ makeup i can use? I'm almost hesitant to completely change into combo products because I'm worried that this is just a weird time for me

Q. I need a skincare regimen
Hi all,   So I know this is super bad - but I have never really looked after my skin at all. Like, ever.   Until now, I've only ever really washed my face whenever I shower, and if I am removing eye make-up (I don't wear make-up often). My skin isn't terrible, I've never had issues with acne, but it's not great either. I look tired a lot of the time, parts of it are very dry, and I'm at the point where I'd like to start taking care of it while I'm young and it's easier to do so.   Thing is, I don't even really know where to begin. All my mother ever taught me was to use a bar of soap to wash my face everyday. I did this in the past, and all it really did was dry out my skin, which was why I stopped. I've also tried various stuff from the aisles in Shoppers Drug Mart, but those products always seemed to cause problems for me. I also only ever used cleansers, and didn't know until recently that you were supposed to moisturize too(?). Anyways, if anyone can give me a really good idea about what products to try and what sort of regimen to use I'd super appreciate it!!   (Oh and I think I have combination skin - parts of my face are very dry, other parts kind of oily, so I guess that would be the type of skin products I'd be looking for)

Q. Color corrector for pale skin and dark acne scars??
I've had acne for the past 6 years, and I just can't get rid of it. I have SUPER pale skin, and I've been told that green corrector only works for tan-ish skin. I've also been told that yellow is better for pale skin and acne scars. My acne is ALL over my face, mostly on my chin, and left cheek. I really need to know what color corrector to use!!

Q. sunscreen recommendation?
Hi! I have a bad habit of not wearing sunscreen but I just moved to the high desert and it's clearly necessary. How much spf do I need and can you recommend a sunscreen or moisturizer with spf (sephora or drugstore) that isn't greasy, won't cause acne, and can be worn smoothly under makeup? And on that note, should I wear foundation primer over the sunscreen? Thanks.

Q. Oily, sensitive, and acne prone skin
I'm 21 and have suffered from acne for as long as I can remember. I've been to the dermatologist and have been perscribed multiple things that have done absolutely nothing. I've tried just about everything so I need some help. I have oily skin and I need products that help with acne or will not cause me to breakout , yet usually when I use products for acne prone skin they leave my skin with dry patches and super sensitive. Is there any products out there that will help with acne but not dry me out??

Q. Skincare Subscription Boxes
Does anyone know of any skincare-only subscription boxes? I just cancelled my Birchbox subscription, since the points system was really the only reason I was sticking around, so I'm looking for a replacement. I'm pretty picky with makeup, but still new to the world of skincare, so it'd be nice to find a subscription box with only skincare items (not mask-only boxes, though).   I have looked into some of the Korean skincare boxes, Miss Tutii and MishiBox in particular, but I'm a little wary of the quality of some of the cheaper Korean brands that are often in those boxes and I am very uncomfortable at the prospect of getting skin-whitening products. I also have gotten the impression that a lot of Korean skincare products are for oily skin, and since I have very dry skin, I would have to have a box that is customized for dry skin.   I would love to hear from subscribers about their experiences with different boxes!

I'm looking for an affordable scented body lotion and/or foot cream to use after showering. I don't have particularly dry legs or feet, so I don't need anything heavy duty, but I really would like something that smells nice!

Q. Drunk Elephant Glycolic v. Sunday Riley Good Genes
I was wondering what people's thoughts on these two are.   I've tried the DE glycolic serum and liked it (sample), but then I tried a foil sample of it a month later and it did not do anything, and rather seemed to add to my whiteheads. I also tried the Good Genes as a sample, but it did not seem to do anything for me. I'm thinking that maybe I am not having much success with these products because I got them in a sample jar where the ingredients would have been exposed to the air for a while.   That said, has anybody really tried both and have a firm opinion on which one they prefer? I have combination/oily (in the center of my face) skin, and it is NOT that sensitive.

Hey guys, so I'm 27 with fair, sensitive, acne prone skin especially hormonal acne. I   am thinking of changing up my skin care routine, BUT I have been using Origins plantscription am with SPF 25 and the night a mins cream at night (both creams are oil free too) for probably 2-3 years now. I just feel like maybe I need something new for my skin, I have been looking at Lancome and some other products, but I just dont know what to go with? obviously I would like a day cream that has SPF in it and im all about anti-aging products it is never too early to start for that. So I need some advice what are the best products to maybe try out that are reasonable or maybe just keep my routine the way it is?

Q. What is a good product in general for break outs?
I use to have great skin but maybe a year ago I developed a problem with cystic acne and I think it was BC related but I've been long off of that and my face does not break out as bad but I still do get breakouts more than I use to and I have some acne scars. I have combination skin and it is more normal than dry but I do get dry spots occasionally. I'm very on top of my face care so I don't know if my skin has gotten use to my cleanser I use now maybe? I was hoping to see if anyone would recommend a great cleanser or even a lotion? I can't honestly call my skin bad BUT when I break out I do break out. I've looked at the Kate Somerville Eradicate Acne spot treatment with the sulfur in the bottle but read it can dry out your skin but would that possibly be something good to try? Anything to get my skin nice again and I do use a pore minimizer and I do have a Glamglow mask. Both work but I'm hoping for something a little more.
