There was a thread not that long ago about those asian exfoliating foot peel masks and since seeing it and discovering that (thanks to whoever initially posted about it!) I just knew I had to buy it. I just thought that my Canadian gals would like to know that I found a box at Pharmaprix in Quebec (otherwise known as Shoppers in the rest of Canada) for pretty cheap. The internet told me that Shoppers carried a brand called Footner, but that's not what I found. But I did find "Feet Treat Pedi" by "Look Beauty" and the box says it was made in Korea. It was 10$. I got the last two boxes. It has the same directions as all the other ones: soak feet, wear for 60-90 mins, rinse feet. Feet start peeling in a few days. I'll either try it tonight or tomorrow night. I'm kind of excited but scared I'll go nuts and peel all my skin off. I just hope its as good as the real deal. I guess I'll know in about a week.
Last year I was getting sick of my acne so I bought a Clarisonic mia 2 with my christmas money and some Fresh Soy Face cleanser after hearing such great things about it. Needless to say my face purged. Then it didn't stop purging. My acne was out of control! I have always had bumps but like at it's worst 2-3 at a time on my face. With the Clarisonic it was like 10 nasty gooey pimples on my face all the time. I then tried switching to Philosphy's purity and still no help. Then I tried the acne brush head with the acne face wash and still it was no help. By this point I had stopped using it twice a day and only using it once a day and then once every other day and still the acne just kept coming. Finally I packed up the Clarisonic and haven't used it since. I tried using the Dr. Dennis Gross Alpha Beta Peel's (just 1/4 of the sheet at night) while washing with the fresh in the morning and while my skin stopped freaking out I still had pimples and the peel was making my skin super sensitive. I finally placed an order for Proactiv+. I had used Proactiv with some success but I hated how dry it made my skin and missing one night and my bumps would come back even worse. It's been 8 months on proactiv+ and even on this new "hydrating" formula my skin is still super dry. In fact the main reason I'm using the proactiv is to gently scrub at the dry patches on my face. I hate using the stuff and really for just a handful of bumps I don't think I need to be going to these extremes. Plus I have been having TONS of problems with the proactiv customer service people. It's just a hassle and expense I don't think I need. I want to use this expensive device I paid for and get off the proactiv+ because I think it's doing more harm then good to my skin. Anyone have any tips for getting off the Proactiv+?
does anyone have recommendations on skincare products for blackheads? I have them mostly on my cheek and it Is really unbearable, I've tried using lush's mask and although my face feels fresh after, no difference in the blackheads
So it turns out I may be entering the early stages of Rosacea and I was wondering how others treated and concealed the redness. What skincare products do you think works best? Whether it's over the counter or prescribed.
So Ive found myself going down the rabbit hole that is Tom Ford beauty. I picked up the Seductive Rose quad yesterday. I really like the formula, particularly of the celestials. Is there a green eyeshadow in existence? I've been wondering if it is worth tracking down the Emerald Lust quad, but unsure of the formula of the 4 colors and if any celestials are included? Are their any options other than the Sahara Haze quad? Thanks!
I've just started using Sunday Riley's Luna oil, which has retinoids in it. I use it maybe once a week, but only for a few weeks. I don't have sensitive skin but AHAs are an immediate and noticeable issue. I used the Luna oil last night and this morning my skin has a few red blotches, a bump and some other spots. It could be totally unrelated to the Luna oil so I don't want anyone to assume the oil is a bad one!!! And everyone's skin reacts differently to different ingredients (if this oil has any AHAs in it…then that would be the issue for me, probably not the retinoids). I've uses retinoids/retinol a few times in the past but rarely, so am not sure of the potential related problems my skin could have. Does anyone have input or insights as to what bad effects could retinoids have on skin? Like I said, it might not be Luna causing the problems or it could be that my skin can't handle an ingredient. But I thought I'd ask. My skin has a red spot, a few small bumps and this odd patchy area by my temple. Thanks!
Do you see the huge dents in it on the bottom left hand corner? I stacked them on top of each other and that's what happened. I thought I'd give everyone a heads up because I know a lot of us have been waiting on pins and needles for this palette. Not worth it! It's the same thickness as the MAC pro palettes. I'm just going to get another one of those. These are going to get returned on Monday. Total garbage! Edit: I can't believe I made the n00b mistake and put it in the acne board. Sorry!
I'm going to a formal dance and I need a foundation that will last all night. I have very dry skin so whenever I wear foundation, within the hour my face will become really flaky. I'm looking for something high coverage. I just want something that will look airbrushed all night
I am 32, Hispanic with a medium complexion. I don't have any wrinkles, besides some very fine lines in my forehead that appeared in my very early 20s. There is no skin problem in particular that I am wanting to tackle, I just want to prevent wrinkles now before they appear. (Want to prevent, instead of treating when they do appear.) Please advice as to which creams/serums to use on my face, eye area, and neck. Or, what ingredients to look for? Your help is greatly appreciated!
I feel like there are so many different steps to put into a skin care routine...how do I figure out what the right ones are...and in which order? Should you wash, treat, serum, moisturizer? What about all the face oils out there? Where do those come into play? I would like a routine to help with to help even out skin tone and be anti-aging as well. Help!
Okay, So I have combo oily/normal skin (oily only in t-zone) and it's some-what acne prone especially with hormones and stress. I also have those annoying little red bumps on my forehead that aren't really pimples but I'm not sure how to get rid of them (if someone can tell me how I'd be forever grateful.) Any-way I've been looking for a day time moisturizer, and right now I'm finding that my moisturizer seems to sink in but a few hours later my face will be greasy in the t-zone and especially on my forehead. Is that because I need to find a good exfoliator or something else? Which brings me to my second issue, I need a good exfoliator that is chemical instead of mechanical because I feel the mechanical does nothing for me. Cleanser I use: Philosophy Purity Made Simple And I also use Josie Maran Pure Argan oil Moisturizers I've Tried: - Clinique Dramatically Different Gel moisturizer - Bosica Self-Defense Vital Antioxidant Moisture SPF 30 - Purity Made Simple gel moisturizer (drugstore) I would prefer something non scented as well. Exfoliators I've Tried: (most have been mechanical) - Mario Badescu Strayberry exfoliator -Some drugstore St. Ives one Again I am looking for chemical not mechanical. On a side note, and recommendations for night-time moisturizers and eye creams would be appreciated. Thank you so much in advance.
Hello Sephora , I'm 17 and I have an acne problem , I've recently purchased ProActiv For the first time a couple weeks ago and it has already stopped working for my skin . I'm darkskin and I have slightly oily skin . I wanted to know what would be your best recommendation for another acne system. I also would like to cover up my acne marks and get into make-up , however no one in my family can help me when it comes to how to start and correctly apply make up , or even what brand would have my skin tone or would be best for my skin. Do you guys have any recommendations on make - up kits for beginners ( dark-skin tone ) . Thanks So Much !
Hey guys im looking for a good lotion for oily skin. Im currently using Kate Sommerville Goat Milk Cream and it was great for fall/winter but im pretty sure it wont work for summer. I wore it on a few hot days and was greasy and i think it broke me out. Any suggestions?
Can somebody weigh in regarding the differences between the three Clarins skin oils, other than what is available in the online description? I'm having a hard time choosing between the three. I have very sensitive skin, oily nose, dry cheeks, large pores here and there.
Hello! So I want to start off by talking about my struggle with skin care. I originally was using the intense hydrating toner, night, and day moisturizer from the body shop which was great and gave my skin a ton of moisture. However I felt like the product contained lots of ingredients that I didn't want on my skin and felt like it was leaving sort of a film! So multiple times I have gone into sephora looking for a new skin care routine and ending up buying the products that they recommend (are pushing for that week) only to find I have wasted money and my makeup looks cakey and gross because my skin is still dry! The last recommendation was the lotus moisturizer but I have noticed it is very drying and my makeup ended up looking worse with this product! I almost feel like there are tons of products in the market that don't do what they say and sifting through them costs a lot of money and time!! Does anyonr know of any skin care lines that have been recommended by a dermatologist or that you can recommend helps with dry skin and has more natural ingredients? I have heard of Sanistas recently but am hesitant to try it since it's not very well known!

I am on the hunt for a sort of dusty type MLB shade in a glossy stain type formula. My very favorite lip color is the nars audacious in Anna, but I can't find anything similar in tone in other formulations. I had high hopes for the dior fluidstick in kiss me, but I guess my lips are moreigmented than I thought because it just kind of washes them out. I also tried the ysl tint in oil in the mauve shade, but it turns bright pink on me. Any suggestions?
Hi all! This is super embarrassing but I really don't know where else to ask! So I've been noticing that my legs have all of these red bumps on them. Mostly on my thighs but it goes down to my calves as well. They are also extremely itchy! Sometimes I can't sleep because they itch so much and on of my legs I made it bleed. I have started to shave less hoping that it was razor burn but that has not helped at all. I have also been putting on lotion like crazy hoping it was due to dry skin, but again... nothing! Anyone else have this problem and find a cure? It's getting worse and worse and it's getting embarrassing, especially with summer coming up
I have sensitive, oily, and acne prone skin. I use epiduo at night for the acne and hydroquinone for hyperpigmentation. My dermatologist recommended that I use a gentle non medicated cleanser twice a day so what cleanser do you recommend?
