Hello! So I have very dry skin year round. I have dry patches by my nose and sometimes on my cheeks and chin. I have been using many different skin care products to make my skin happy and hydrated but can't seem to find the right products. I have been researching about the skin care line called First Aid Beauty and was wondering if those products would be good for me to use. Just wanted some opinions. Thanks!
Hello! I have always had oily combo skin. As soon as I turned 30 my skin has been so dry and dehyrated! I have tried a few foundations and have returned them. Nothing sits well. I am looking for a hydrating foundation
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?
I recently started using the Drunk Elephant Framboos Glycolic Night Serum, about a few weeks ago. And each time I use it, I notice I get these deep subsurface bumps on my jawline. itchy and pretty painful. Has anyone else experienced this with this product? I'm not sure if its an allergic reaction, or what. I figured my skin may be purging at first, but this does not hardly seem worth it for a product that was $100. Attaching a photo to show my areas of concern. No idea what it is!
31 with normal to dry skin, looking for a good anti aging skin care regimen that is not too pricey. I am pretty busy, so I don't really want to deal with a lot of products-simple would be best. Thanks!

Hello everyone, I hope you could share some pointers to what just attacked my face! I began using a new foundation, and after about two days of use, woke up to blackheads. I get a spot or two like clockwork, hormonal, sometimes even cysts, but I haven't had actual blackheads invade like this since I was twelve or so! My question is, would the foundation be to blame, or is it more likely the new sleep oil that I've been sampling for around a week? i also have been experiencing itching although there is zero flaking, hives, or redness. Id hate to do a used return if it is another product. Everything else in my routine is 100% the same. Thanks in advance!!
Hi! I'm in my mid-30s and am looking for help putting together a complete skincare regimen. I usually buy whatever is on sale at the drugstore, and generally only use a cleanser and moisturizer....but I'm ready to step up my game. I've been checking into Rodan + Fields, but I'm not convinced it's right for me. I have combo skin and my main areas of concern are pores, redness/uneven skin, dullness and anti-aging. I'm completely overwhelmed by all of the options and have no idea what to buy and when to use each product. Thanks for your help!
Evaluating self tanners and I'd love advice from all of you! There were some older threads that touched on self tanners, but I'm hoping to get some updates now that some new products are out. I'm looking for: - Deepest color (not orange of course, not toooo olive either - I'm looking at you Xen Tan); I'd like to be very tan looking (I am med to fair normally) - Last lasting as possible (Vita Liberata is great exaggerating with 2-3 weeks, but ya know) - Non streaky/not prone to splotichess as it fades (no chunking off) - Quick Drying as I hate being wet and sticky in the summer heat, and because I don't want it transferring to everything - No strong perfume scent (coconut OK, DHA smell is even OK) but no floral because gives me huge headache - I prefer mouse/foam, dry oil, even lotion over wipes at this point Also - so has anyone used Tanceuticals darkest formula? I read good reviews online but I'm worried they might be paid... Here's what I've tried recently: 1. Vita Liberata Mouse - I like this, it meets most of my requirements, I just didn't fall in love -- this is my back up. Some transfer of course. I would get the deepest shade next time. Does NOT last 2+ weeks as they claim. Rosy bronze color with olive undertones. 2. Xen Tan - lotion, not horrible but a little too orange and olive mixed somehow, on my skin - just doesn't look quite natural. Because this is a heavier lotion, it stays wet and tacky on my skin too long . I have to use a lot to get good coverage. Just OK. 3. Vita Liberata Dry Oil - I like this, I am trialing it today for the first time. My bottle is older but had never been opened, finally got around to trying it. Application is a huge pain however, it comes out in TINY drops from the bottle, it's super thin liquidy and dribbles everywhere. It does dry somewhat quicker. The color seems rosy bronze. I like the idea that it has shimmer although I can't actually see it on my body. 4. Tan Towels - nope. Streaky, orange, dried my skin out, barely tanned me, faded immediately, nope nope nope. Love to hear your favs and least favs! Thanks all...
Hello, I just received some Ole Henriksen products I ordered online, the aloe vera deep cleanser, the grease relief facial water and the grease relief face tonic....is there a difference between the facial water and facial tonic? Can I use both of them back to back, if not which one should I keep? Thank you.
Hi! I've been using my Clarisonic for a couple of weeks now and I'm currently using it with a FAB cleanser. I'm thinking of getting Korres Wild Rose Daily Brightening & Refinishing Buff Cleanser due to my uneven skin tone and dark spots and my question is, can I use that with my Clarisonic? If not, I don't want to store my Clarisonic in the drawers cause it's so expensive and I want to make the most out of it, can I use the FAB cleanser and then use the Korres cleanser as exfoliator or is that too much cleansing since the Korres cleanser works as both cleanser and exfoliator?
Hi, my elder sister has a plan to undergo facelift surgery in Dr. Omar Fouda Neel's clinic in Montreal. The problem is that none of our friends or relatives have undergone one before so we are quite unknown about how the procedure would be like, how long would be the recovery time etc. I wish if I could get her some more useful information regarding facelift surgery. Is there any other procedure that should be considered along with facelift to get a better result? Do you guys have any alternative option to suggest?
Hi my name is Kristen and I am a skincare noob.😳 As a general guide, I'm wondering in what order products should be applied? Obviously start with cleanser, but then what? Also, do you do the same order routine for both day and night? Like if a serum was applied before applying foundation during the day, would the foundation be able to stay on your skin?
Hi there! I have major acne problems. I use to have problems with pimples now i don't anymore. Im a dark skin woman and i currently have an issue with dark spots/ scarring. I was wondering if anyone would know any really really good skin care products for my issue? Masks, cleansers, anything would help. thank you in advance!
This really sucks. I have somewhat sensitive skin but I've never had a reaction that looks like this and I fear that it will only get worse. It started yesterday in a couple of places and it didn't look bad. Today it got worse. I'm including a couple photos because I don't know how to best describe it other than "it looks like a bunch of tiny red dots that look like micro pimples". Below the photos I've included all new products used this week along with all the products I use regularly. Pictures taken after cleansing and toner. I've only used a few new things in the past week. Do I need to go farther back? And yes I know I should have spot tested and not introduced so many new things at once but it's done. Deluxe: FAB Face Cleanser (used on Thurs & Fri) Deluxe: Origins Original Skin Renewal Serum (used nightly, I had used a jar sample before and no reaction) Foils: The Face Shop Mango Seed Volume Butter For Face (2X, used Weds & Thurs) Foils: Biotherm Aquasource Everplump (used Fri night, I have used other Biotherm night cream foils and no reaction) I'm going to go through my whole routine I guess... Every night: The Face Shop Calming Seed Cleanser (if not using other cleansers) The Face Shop Calming Seed Toner Origins Original Skin Renewal Serum A sheet mask The Body Shop Vit E Eye Cream, but I ran out so more recently it's been The Face Shop The Therapy Secret Made Anti Aging Eye Cream The Body Shop Tea Tree Blemish Fade Night Lotion and a cream but I ran out of my usual The Face Shop Calming Seed Cream Additional products not used nightly: Weds: Laneige Mulberry Yogurt Repairing Mask The Face Shop Mango Seed Volume Butter for Face Thurs: Boscia Exfoliating Peel Gel Murad T Zone Pore Refining Gel The Face Shop Mango Seed Volume Butter for Face Fri: Glamglow Flashmud Origins Active Charcoal Mask Biotherm Aquasource Everplump Laneige Water Sleeping Mask
Hi! I"m 13 years old and am for looking some good skincare products. I have normal/dry skin with some acne here or there. I'm currently looking for a moisturizer and possibly eye cream? I currently use Ole Henriksen Sheer Transformation moisturizer which I found out had anti aging properties in there which I feel I'm too young for... I use to use Clinique Dramatically Different Moisturizer which I felt worked good for me but when I went to Sephora planning to buy it again the skincare woman there said it was for more mature skin than mine and recommended me Ole Henriksen? Anyways, I'm just trying to find a good moisturizer for normal - dry skin and possibly a good eye cream for dark circles? Thanks in advance!
I have redness on my cheeks and the center of my forehead, it is not acne related. I have not had acne there in almost 10 years. I have very dry and sometimes sensitive skin. my skin care routine right now is geared towards my skin type and does not cause the redness. I'm looking for something to treat the problem. At this point, Ill even take recommendations on how to cover it up because foundation and concealer doesn't cover it.
I am trying to get some skin care for my girlfriend. She is really into that stuff. However, I am getting pretty lost in all of this? Can people recommend some products? Also, I am super curious as to what makes these products good. Thanks. Also she is blond and she in her late 20s.
Hi!!! I was wondering if anyone has any skin care product recommendations for dehydrated and blemish prone skin. Lately I've been breaking out more and I find that I have many under the skin type of pimples that just give my skin a bumpy texture somewhat and on top of that I have dehydrated skin. I have very few dry patches but my skin typically feels tight unless I moisturizer and pretty much whenever I wear makeup my face gets oily within a few hours (trying to compensate for the dryness). Any product recommendations will be appreciated!! Thanks
Hi all, I have an itchy skin for the past 4 months. I have tried some home remedies (like turmeric and milk), but that did nothing. I fear to consult a doctor and to use some chemical containing oils on my skin. While searching I found that reflexology works for such skin problems and it will not create any side effects as it is a natural method. I am thinking to try this from Erin Mills Optimum Health What are your suggestions?
Which all methods are you using for your skin care? Is there any effect on naturopathy for skin care? Does anyone had tried it? While browsing I read that naturopathy treatments are good for treating acne? My sister is suffering from severe acne so she is planning to get treatment from nearby physiotherapy clinic in Toronto, but before that, I need to know whether someone had tried it. Kindly share your experience.
