Hello! I need something to get rid of the sun spots on my face and other discoloration/redness/blotchiness. I still have some pimples and blackheads on my face so I would like whatever I use to take care of all of it. I also have some acne scars. I am 30 years old with fair skin. What would you suggest I use?
Last night I saw someone (gloss13?) ask on the Luxury Skincare thread, would you pay $1k for a skincare product... and through the conversation that ensued, a few people pointed out that their entire routines might add up to that amount. So, it got me thinking... if I were to add up my entire daily skincare routine, where would I be at on that spectrum? I have some guesses, but I have a feeling this will still be an eye opener for me (and probably for many others, too). I'm only going to go by total product cost, not normalized for daily usage, because nobody's got time for that! I'll write down everything I use in a day and edit my total in here. Please feel free to come share your skincare snapshots with me
I have recently noticed I am getting fine lines under my eyes. I am only 30 but with 4 kids in my house I am surprised it did not start sooner. I have oily skin as a rule and I need a moisturizer that wont make me break out but will help slow this luggage down. ANY ADVICE IS HELPFUL! I also use the HD make up by sephora. It just seems to float off my skin on a pool of oil half way through the day.Any idea how to deal with this? THANKS in advance!
I have dry patches under my eyes, the area just above my cheekbone, and every time I apply my foundation (Lancôme Rénergie Lift Makeup SPF 20), my foundation just sits on top of the dry patches and flakes off. Is there a foundation that could help with that or a way for me to hydrate my skin/get rid of the dry patches? Thanks!
I've been looking for opinions on this product ever since I saw the shiny packaging. It sounds like fun, but I want to know if you think it does anything special for skin, other than look pretty. I hear that grav3yardgirl talked about it in one of her haul videos, but I haven't been able to find the video, because she has so many hauls. The reviews seem overwhelmingly positive, but most people seem to be using it as a highlighter. I got a sample of it recently, and am trying to figure out the best way to wear it, but I'm not sure I need to buy it if it is only really a highlighter, because I have so many good highlighters already. I am mostly intrigued by the idea of wearing gold dust on my face and that it might be beneficial for my skin.
Does anyone have any suggestions for extremely sensitive dry skin? I have tried every drug store moisturizer and even keihls, lancome, estee lauder, philosophy. Nothing works. My dermatologist is struggling as well, everything burns, I mean eye watering burn, when it hits my skin. Within a few seconds my face is beet red, my rosacea flares up and then I get acne a few days later. My skin has been so dry lately and im starting to get fine lines and wrinkles under my eyes, so I know I need to do something. But nothing agrees with me! Anyone have similar issues or a miracle skin treatment? The last rx caused me to get cystic acne on my forehead and chin, it's just now clearing up and I am hopeful that something will work!
I'm searching for anti- wrinkle cream and skin cleanser that helps with fine and deeper lines and will also help firm without increasing t-zone acne. I'm a long time Shiseido and have their future LX products, but would like something a little less expensive. Target areas are eyes, lips and neck. Any advise?
Hi, I do not understand few things. I have tried few products from Sephora and a lot from Korean brands. When they are non-Korean brands they are hurting my face a lot. For example, Kate Somerville, Ole Henriksen's products, they hurt me a lot. However, when I use korean brands such as all Faceshop products, it's skin, Laneige, etc, they are a lot smoother, so I wonder why does it do this to me! And if I should be restricted to only buy from Korean brands. thanks!
Hi everyone! I've been thinking of purchasing a toner, but I have no idea what to try. I was going to buy a Clinique toner, but a sales associate at sephora told me it would be too harsh on my skin. I have acne prone and sensitive skin, so I am always conscious about what I put on my face. I do use a prescription from my dermatologist, not sure if that matters or not! I would also like to avoid something that dries out my skin, I've finally gotten my dryness under control. I'd appreciate the help! Thanks!
I'm currently using Maybelline's Dream Fresh BB Cream, but I'm looking for something with a little more coverage, preferably in the same price range. I got a sample of Laura Mercier's Tinted Moisturizer a couple months back and absolutely loved it, but I really can't afford to be spending that much on a product I'll use up so quickly. Does anyone know of any dupes? Or what is your favorite drugstore BB Cream/Tinted Moisturizer/CC Cream with medium coverage? http://www.sephora.com/tinted-moisturizer-broad-sp ectrum-oil-free-P140906?skuId=1531441
I have used hydrocortisone cream for years on my eyes to treat eczema, since I was a little kid. Now that Im getting older I have realized the side effects of hydrocortisone used for a prolonged time and want to prevent thinning and repair my skin. I am basically looking for a hydrating eye cream that will assist with this if it even exists lol, not sure if thats asking too much but I have no idea where do even begin there are so many eye creams! Thanks
Hello. I'm in my mid 30's and want to switch to a natural line. I break out daily all over and its worse during my period. I would like to stay within the same line. Which line would work best for me: Tata Harper, Drunk Elephant, or Sunday Riley?
Hey there! I am so lucky to love my job but I work outside. I work in merchandise and live in Florida. After about five minutes outside you are already sweating up a storm! My shifts are about 8 hours long outside with two thirty minute breaks. Does anyone have any recommendations of what I should use to help my skin? I always wear my hair up and my problem area is my jaw and cheeks. Thanks!
I've been getting lots of oil around my nose and dry patches on my cheeks and forehead. Currently I wear It cosmetics cc cream but just purchased the Peter Thomas Roth CC cream which I haven't tried yet. On these little dry patches on my skin, the make up is caking. what should I do?
Hello, all. I am Janet, friends call me Jo. I work for a firm in Toronto. I am an accountant by profession. The work is hectic and because of this, my face has become dull . I happened to follow a diet plan so as to control my weight and belly size and after this, I got a wonderful change in my overall size of my body. But my face got saggy and turned dull. My skin was dry, so I underwent a facelift treatment ( http://www.drkreidstein.com/our-procedures/face/fa cial-rejuvenation-surgery/facelift/ ) two months before at Michael Kreidstein centre and I could get a wonderful change in my saggy face. But after that, I didn't use much foundation or any kind make ups. Before I used Maybelline foundation and Makeup forever-HD product as my skin was dry. It's my sister's wedding next month, and I don't know what kind of products that I should be using. Any products you got to suggest for me? I need to hide scars too,so is there any products that would help me in this situation? Will the products that I used before help me in this situation? I want to look awesome in her marriage and I don't want anyone to see my scars. Any suggestions for me?
I have combination skin that tends to lean more towards the oily side, and I feel like my pores are just very congested. Especially on my nose. I have a lot of blackheads and I want to get rid of them so badly. Can anyone recommend a product that has worked for them? Thanks!
I have normal skin and some acne on my chin and forehead I am trying to clear up. I wear a lot of makeup almost everyday and because of it my skin occasionally feels like its gross and clogged up from all the products. Is there anything that will help my skin to feel more clean and refreshed and get rid of all the gunk in my skin?
I suffer from the most inevitable; Acne. I have a few pimples on my forehead, nose and chin, but most the acne on my face is scaring. My nose, however, is infested with embedded black heads. I wash my face 3-4 times a day with Acne Dote Face Wash, I use homemade soap to cool my face (after using the acne wash, my face feels like it's burning and redness appears), I then apply coconut oil. I have been doing this for months now and I've hardly noticed any changes. The only change I've seen is the bumpiness has gone down slightly, but that's about it. I'm going to be starting high school in a few days, and I truly wish not to be picked on because of it. I've been picked on a lot during activities I participated in. Do you have any suggestions how to remove the blackheads / lighten or remove acne scaring / clear up the pimples on my forehead, chin and nose? Thanks. Spoiler (Highlight to read)
So the thing is, my nose is always dry and flakey for some reason, while every other part of my face is fine. I need help finding a good face cleanser and moisturizer that will help prevent the dry flakes appearing on my nose. Any good suggestions? Can be from Sephora or drug store. I have tried using facial oils as a moisturizer and they dont seem to help so much, so im thinking something more cream and thick?
Or maybe Sunday Reily?? Being proactive about aging and I have no clue what I'm doing being over whelmed by all the options. Oily t zone and chin, dry areas and acne prone. Please help me out ladies and gentlemen!
I work 3rd shift, and I'm not sure what to do with my skin care routine. On one hand you hear that your skin regenerates when sleeping, on the other you hear your skin repairs itself between 11PM and 2 AM the most. So should I do my night time routine at night, before work. Or in the morning before trying to sleep? I use retinol products, anti-aging products etc. It's so annoying to try and figure out what my new skin care schedule should be.
HELP! I'm looking for good skincare products. I have combination/oily skin. I tend to breakout a lot on my nose and around my temples. I'm usually oily in my t-zone. I use a drugstore acne facial wash twice a day but when I use it around my nose gets dry and some other parts of my face so sometimes I switch back and forth from acne wash to just a regular facial wash. I also crease a lot on my under eyes whenever I'm using makeup. OH! and I get a lot of blackheads on my nose. I'm being a tad bit needy lol, I'm looking for a good facial cleanser, good moisturizer, face masks and also maybe under eye care.
