Hi, I'm 52 with very few wrinkles/lines. Just a few between my brows and on my forehead. I currently use a vitamin C serum in the morning and an AHA serum at night. I'm wondering if I should be adding a retinol to the mix? Any thoughts? Thanks so much, Lisa
Does anyone know if Sunday Riley has discontinued its Bionic cream? It's no longer showing on Sephora website or at most other websites. This is the first anti-aging type cream with bells and whistles that I've been able to use without any reactions. Can a mod pipe in and confirm?
Have you guys tried any of these products? I'm wonderstruck by their claims of using pure products free of animal products. I'm especially interested in Blue Tansy and Orchid oil (possibly to replace my SR Flora). Any thoughts?
I need a product that will cover a really dark small freckle or age spot under my eye, I have tried IT concealers, and many others, nothing helps. Can you suggest a full full coverage concealer/spot treatment that wont make me break out, I have oily and sensitive aging skin.
I have pretty dry skin, especially in winter, and it's the only cleanser I've been able to use for years. It is an absolutely lovely cleanser, but now that it's discontinued, I'm not sure what to purchase next. I really don't want to spend $30 on a cleanser, only to have it dry out my skin (or make it ridiculously oily). I don't like the melting cleaners, or the cream-based cleansers. I can't believe BM discontinued a perfect facial cleanser. Any suggestions?
So, I know these are two very different companies as it relates to their platforms. Love me or hate me, I've never really cared about ingredients in skin care all that much - I care more about results. I mean that in the most non-snarky way possible btw lol so please don't take it harshly! Sooooo that being said, has anyone out there had experience with both brands, and would recommend one or the other? I'm mostly curious about the oils. I was planning on buying the SR Luna and UFO oil , but the Herbivore Lapis looks interesting. What about the Moon Fruit night cream? Does anyone find it performs better than SR Good Genes? Finally, that blue tansy mask looks like it could be a good find! they have a pineapple one as well, but it doesn't look like its available at Sephora yet. Thoughts?!
I am looking for a good skincare regimen. I have an oily T-zone, with overproduction of oil on my upper cheeks where my pore are enlarged. I have blackheads on my nose and cheeks and will get bumps along my jawline and chin. Currently, I am using the PTR Purifying Cleanser, and the Ole Henriksen Sheer Transformation moisturizer.
I have very dry skin (aside from my nose bridge, which is oily.) and live in a humid climate. I've got the Lock It concealer, but have been debating on whether to get the Lock It foundation or the Born This Way foundation. Can anyone help me decide?
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?
Hi everyone, I was looking into buying the DDG Facial Steamer and was wondering what your skincare routines are. Cleanse, steam, mask, serum, moisturizer? Is there any point exfoliating after steaming?
Hi! I am looking to try new skin care products, and I am unsure whether I should try the DRUNK ELEPHANT AHA Moment set or the SUNDAY RILEY Power Couple Duo: Total Transformation Kit...maybe both? (perhaps that's excessive? lol) For reference I am 25 with combo/dry sensitive skin that is ALSO acne prone (sigh) I have few hyper-pigmentation spots and dry patches. I currently use a retinoid serum and different mild AHA/BHA toners.
I am looking for an awesome treatment to use in my skin care routine to help fight redness. I have been using the Clinique foundation which covers my redness almost to the point where I look like a ghost! I just want something that is actually to help my problem, not just mask it!
I have very oily skin and have struggled a lot with my acne. My makeup will never stay on and will usually be gone within 2-3 hours. I'm looking for a foundation that will give me a full coverage for my acne and will also be very long-lasting even through heat and humidity.
something that isn't too expensive (less than $75 ish) but packs a punch. I'm 26 and noticing a lot of crows feet suddenly, and maybe puffiness, so I'm trying to be proactive. I've never used eye cream before, so I really have no idea where to start or what to trust. Please let me know what you guys know works!
I thought I'd start a thread for people to post issues they're having with their skin that relate to dermatitis, reactions to certain products, skin allergies, and similar issues. I think having a central thread may help for sharing ideas and learning from each other. I have super sensitive skin myself but have been on BT long enough to see that practically everyone has had a skin reaction to some product or another and sometimes sharing with others really helps narrow down the cause and solution. This thread isn't meant to be a place to post about the more common skin issues such as minor acne, wrinkles, etc. that we all experience, but rather a place to post about the more unusual ones relating to specific products/ingredients or longer term ones that are not related to age or hormones such as eczema, psoriasis, rosacea, dermatitis, and just the puzzling things that our skin does from time to time. I'm not an skincare expert by any means and unless someone asserts that he or she is one, this thread is more of a place to share ideas and experiences rather than a place to seek definitive answers or treatment.

I had some pretty bad acne the past 3-4 months which prior to that I usually had pretty clear skin. It was just on my jawline and now that it's gone i'm left with scarring. Are there any products like face masks, or whatever that actually will help clear the scarring or am I pretty much screwed unless I get some kind of laser treatment or something?
Hello! I have combination skin - oily t-zone and dry cheeks - and I breakout pretty much all the time on my nose, above my lips and on my chin. I also have loads of tiny bumps under my skin in these areas which makes finding a good foundation hard. I find it hard to find skincare and makeup that works for me, and I don't want to keep spending money on products that aren't working for me. Currently, I use Philosophy's Purity cleanser (which seems to be working well), Alpha-H's liquid gold, Mario Badescu's toner mist and a moisturiser from the Body Shop. Makeup wise, i'm missing a primer from my routine, but I use Nars Sheer Glow as a base, which sometimes breaks up around my oily areas, especially in the summer. I'm looking for some suggestions for: - a face mask - a primer - anything else that you would recommend for my skin type. Thanks! xo
