Skincare routines, what do you actually need?
I'm new to these boards, so I'm sorry if this has already been covered!    I'm a bit overwhelmed trying to pick a morning/nightly skincare routine. There are so many different products you can use, but what do you think is actually necessary?  I've also noticed that a lot of you ladies will only use some products every few nights, why is that?  And how do you determine which products are not for daily use?    I have normal to dry skin, and I break out on my chin when I don't wash my brushes every week.  I'm 27 so I've started to worry more about anti aging products.  Right now, I wash my face at night only, I have a serum I use in the morning as well as night (is this necessary?), and I use a day cream or night cream.  Am I missing anything?

I need advice on under eye cream.
I've tried all kinds. I don't have dark circles (most of the time) but I do have bags under my eyes. I've found that under eye cream seems to work better than a concealer (probably because I don't have circles as I mentioned before). I am 30 years old and have slight wrinkles so I want something that won't settle into my wrinkles. I'd also like something that will actually last longer than a couple of hours or something I can reapply over makeup. Any advice? TIA

I did make over for 45 min in sephora and my skin under eyes turned flaky. Why?
Hi! My skin turned flaky and looks "old" after make over in sephora. She used nars under eyes, than givenchy make up, then laure mercier brightening powder and then spray to hold make up. After 15 minutes I looked at the mirror and my skin under eyes turned flaky lizard-like. Why? By myself I usually use only lancome visionary primer and then make up. I'm 27 years old so my skin naturally doesn't look flaky. I did exfoliating with clarins just before I went for make up and then used lamcome moisturizing day cream.( pink one). How do I get rid of dark circles and don't have this flaky look? Is my skin dry? Or too many products?

I'm no make up artist but from the youtube videos I watch it could be that she over powdered under your eyes which dried them out! Just my guess. see post
SEPHORA Collection Sleeping Masks
Hey everyone! I was just wondering if anyone has used the sleeping mask from the Sephora Collection. I want to know, because the instructions say to rinse off any excess in the morning, if people dont wash their faces when they wake up. I wash my face with my clarisonic every morning or else I feel gross, so I dont know if youre supposed to do that with these masks or not. I dont think I would be able to not wash my face in the morning.

Allergic reaction or....???
I have never posted before but I am kind of freaking out right now.  Two nights ago I used a sample packet of Sunday Riley Good Genes.. I used it as a serum on clean skin overnight. I dont have overly sensitive skin, I use all the glam glow products, my clarisonic, etc.  However I woke up with terribly bumpy, rash like skin all over my face that feels burning and itchy. I assume the rash will go away, (hopefully very soon!) but now I am terrified to use any new face products (And I have a tonne of packets and deluxe samples to get through!) Anyone have any advice as to what ingredients in Sunday Riley I may have reacted to? This has never happened before with other products. Any help is MUCH appreciated!!

Sephora: Beauty Chain to Begin Testing Subscription Delivery Service!!! Will you subscribe?!
The service (adorably called ‘Play!’) plans on sending out a handful of samples each month —for ten bucks. "Play! is launching this September in Boston, Columbus, and Cincinnati, and then going nationwide next year. Sephora’s first bundle, according to Harpers Bazaar , will include samples by “Marc Jacobs, Ole Henriksen, Bumble and bumble, Glamglow and Sephora’s in-house brand,” plus some “bonus samples.”   I guess this is trending in social media!  The subscribers would have a box of products delivered for $10 each month. I'm excited!   UPDATE:  I knew it!  just another way to get everyone excited According to Sephora "The subscription will be available initially by invite only. Please check Sephora dot com/Play  on or after August 12th for more information and to add yourself to the wait list."   And of course, it's a broken link

Sensitive Acne Prone Skin
I recently have been having horrible flare ups and my skin is very sentimental to harsh acne treatments. I tried the Clinique acne three step solutions and it made my skin a lot worse. I currently use Fresh soy cleanser in the morning and Purity 3 in 1 cleanser at night, Lush tea tree toner, Clinique spot treatment and try out various lotions. Any recommendations that works better?

dry flaky areas on nose creases??
I don't know what this is, but I just have dry, flaky skin just at the creases of my nose that are particularly visible when I wear makeup (mineral or liquid) and I don't know how to get rid of it. I've tried good moisturizers, but it doesn't seem to work and it's very isolated to just the nose crease. I do have dry skin in general, but a good moisturizer usually takes care of any dryness EXCEPT here. It's not so much "patches" of skin, it looks maybe more like pores that have flaked off or something. It's hard to describe. Maybe I will take a picture. Does anybody know what the heck I'm talking about? lol If so, what skin regiment would you recommend?

Nighttime Skincare Routines - Please Share!
Hi Everybody! I am curious if anyone has followed the same nighttime skincare routine for quite some time and would like to share? I have been bopping around with brands so I haven't become loyal to any yet. I am loyal to certain kinds of products tho. I love toners and beauty oils. I have my Clarisonic Mia 2. Which I love but haven't used any face wash with it besides the Clarisonic brand. My full nighttime ritual is:   1. Clinique Take the Day Off Oil 2. Lancôme Bi-Facil Double Action Eye Makeup remover 3. Boscia Detoxifying Black Cleanser or Mia with Clarisonic Acne wash (depending on day. Only use my Mia 2 or 3 times per week) 4. Neutrogena Pore Minimizing toner 5. Shiseido Ultimune Power Infusing Concentrate. 6. Clinique Turnaround Overnight Moisturizer 7. Philosophy Hope in a Jar eye cream.   A lot of steps I know! I skip some depending on how dry or oily my skin is currently. Plus when I use a mask I'll skip toner and once a week I use my Erborian Solid Oil Cleanser.   If anyone has a ride or die routine they have been loyal to for a long time please let me know. I love suggestions and seeing what other people swear by!

Please help! Recommended skincare routine for a 36 year old novice.
Looking for advice for a new skincare routine. My routine since I was a teen has been face wash, moisturizer, sunscreen and drink lots of water. I've never invested much and my skin has always been fine, until now. Recently I've noticed a few lines on my forehead and redness/ruddiness on my cheeks (next to my nose only). I've trolled the BT boards and am totally overwhelmed! I'd love some advice. I have normal to dry skin that is sensitive to strong products. I'd like to lose these forehead wrinkles. I've become obsessed with checking out other people's foreheads ever since I noticed mine.  Please help!
