We’re thrilled to share with you the #1 anti-ageing serum at Sephora: our Good Genes All-In-One Lactic Acid Treatment. This product is formulated with high-powered, purified-grade lactic acid that exfoliates away dull, pore-clogging dead skin cells to visibly reveal smooth, fresh, younger looking skin. In addition to lactic acid, skin-brightening licorice helps visibly reduce the look of dark spots, age spots, and discoloration caused by sun exposure, for naturally brighter, more even-toned skin. Good Genes is also clinically tested and proven to significantly improve the appearance of lines and wrinkles in just three minutes! We’ll be checking this thread frequently throughout the month to chat about the challenge itself and answer your questions about Good Genes. We can’t wait to hear about your results!
Often people ask for recommendations on a skincare routine or for specific products/combinations. This might be a place to share your everyday skincare, both AM and PM. A skincare "what are you wearing" as it were. Hope this is useful. *Age - 40 Skin type - oily/combination Current skin condition - quite dehydrated (winter/indoor heating)* 01/17/16 - AM skincare in the order I used 1. Nude Jelly cleanser (love) 2. Pixi Glow tonic (5% glycolic toner - love) 3. Omorovicza Queen of Hungary Spritz (sample) 4. Radical Skincare Youth Infusion serum - hydrating and anti-ageing (new to me. Testing) 5. Bobbi Brown Hydrating Eye Cream (like) 6. Elemis Pro-Collagen Marine cream (really like as an AM moisturizer) I will try to post PM skincare tonight so the post can be comprehensive. General comments - Okay skin. Apparently the age between 38-42 is a transformational time in hormones (dehydrated skin/spots), so I am more aware of how my skin performs/reacts . My skincare definitely has more "actives" now than before.
We're blabbing about everything else these days, I figured I'd check in and see what people are watching when it comes to TV shows and movies! It would be foolish to think that this thread could remain spoiler free, so let's be courteous to one another and be sure to spoiler your spoilers. If you don't know how, it's that super adorable little yellow button on the toolbar, located to the right of the bold/italic/underline/strikeout buttons. DONT FORGET: If you happen to be the most recent post, your first sentence or two of your post will show up EVEN IF ITS IN A SPOILER. So please take care if you're going to go dropping spoiler bombs. Anywho... I just saw the movie PHOENIX last night and it was absolutely spectacular. Like Academy Award spectacular. If you're fortunate enough have showings in your area, I cannot urge you enough to go see it. So whatcha'll watchin' these days? What are you anxiously waiting for to start back up?
I can only wear Clinique products. I have dryer skin and sensitive. I am not oily. Do I need a night time cream? I currently use the 3 step for cleansing and there foundation....I have tried the moisture surge intense and is a bit oily/greasy....was looking for a night time and morning cream.
Is it okay to use night cream for both day and night? I am in my late forties and I have large expression lines. I have not found a product that truly works for me. I thought maybe if I tried this, I might see a difference. Any recommendations on products? I would like to stay around the $65-75 price point. Thank you!!
I was thinking we should have an "official" NUDE Skincare thread, in case something comes out of this new NUDE story that is happening lately. ( And even if not. ) So we can follow it all here. There are some threads, but those are more just questions and inquiries about NUDE stuff. It would be easier to have all things NUDE at one place, so we can all share news, updates, those possible new products, and anything NUDE here. This is an announcement on Beautycounter about NUDE Skincare: "It is with great excitement that we announce Counter Brands, LLC, parent company of Beautycounter, has acquired the worldwide assets of NUDE Skin Care, Inc. and NUDE Brands, Ltd. founded by Ali Hewson, the wife of musician and social activist, Bono. As a result of this deal, and their genuine interest in our products and mission, Bono will join the company as an investor and Ms. Hewson will join the Board of Directors of Counter Brands, LLC. Similar to our partnership with Target, this validation from such respected public figures will lead to increased brand awareness and client base. We are thrilled to have them join our team. The synergy between our two companies – from mission to ingredient selection process – makes NUDE a logical and compelling addition to our growing brand portfolio. We believe that incredible things are possible for our business and our unwavering advocacy work in D.C. For the foreseeable future, the Beautycounter and NUDE lines will exist as they do today." They also said: "“We will continue to sell through their existing channels of distribution,” Renfrew said of Nude. “The idea is to grow the channels of distribution as well as the product line as a whole,” she said." Also: "NUDE products are currently available in the US on Sephora.com, across Europe in Space.NK stores and online, in Australia in Mecca stores and Mecca.com." Response from Sephora's CS ( 6/30/2016 ): "The Nude Skin care line has been highly anticipated with our clients, and we can certainly appreciate your interest! At this time, some of the NUDE products are limited edition and will be on our site as supplies last, while other products are on our site to stay! We suggest staying tuned to Sephora's promotional emails, as new product launches are frequently announced via email. Additionally, keep checking back on our website under the Quick Link "Just Arrived"." If you have any news, please feel free to share them here. If you have questions, post them here, and hopefully someone will have answers. Or we can all "investigate" together and try to find out what's cooking.
I am 40 with combo normal to oily in the T-zone skin. I have a tendency to get dehydrated skin, as I have allergies and take meds everyday. My skin is sensitive, and I also have mild rosacea/acne prone. I don't use primers as they tend to make me break out. I find that anything too active is a no go for me. I recently had a terrible experience using Clinique's Moisture Surge - Hello Roscaea. Like the worst flare I have ever had. This is what I am using and it doesn't irritate my skin. I have some holes and am looking for some help please, thank you in advance! From Sephora or not, I have tried a lot of products and I really want my skin to be calm, glowy and just look good! Morning: Caudalie Gentle Cleansing Milk Toner? Serum? Moisturizer that can prep skin for makeup.? SanRe Eye Candy Night: Tatcha Pure Camellia Cleansing OIl Korres Greek Yoghurt Foaming Cream Cleanser with my Clarisonic Toner or Essence? Sunday Riley Luna Korres Greek Yoghurt Moisturizing Face Cream Some nights I mix in Cliniques Smart Treatment Oil in my Moisturizer for an added boost SanRe Eye Candy Mask: PTR Rose Stem Cell Mask (Any Other Suggestions for pores?)
So this is my current Nighttime skincare routine, looking for feedback on the order im doing things in: Coconut Oil to remove makeup A Foaming Cleanser (exfoliant/mask/ sometimes both once to twice a week) Toner hydrating mist Oil eye cream moisturizer I also want to add an essence in here as well as Sunday Riley's Good Genes Lactic Acid. I am also super curious about what i should leave in/leave out in the mornings! Please let me know thoughts on my current routine as well as where to add in these new products !!! Thank you!
so I have skin care like serums and conditioners and I need acne products like clarifying with salyic acid in them what order should all these happen. I know that my cleanser, with acne treatment goes first --use with clarisonic but after that what order should everything go?
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

Hey guys! I had a question regarding to skin care products. So, recently I’ve been experiencing some serious breakouts. My face has always been in good condition, and I have been using several products to do that (Kiel’s, Korean skincare, Fresh), in addition to that I always thought that good genes are another reason for my ‘problemless’ skin (my mom and sister have the best skin ever!!). However, the breakouts that I now have consist on small acne look-like pimples and are in only one section of the face (the right one and forehead), the left part is perfectly fine. I believe that my T-zone has recently become more oily than usual and that’s the reason behind this breakout. So I’m looking for a good moisturizer (oil-free), cleanser, and mask. I’d like to note that I’m allergic to tea tree oil so what do you guys suggest? Thank youuuu!!
i've seen this type of question asked more generally, but i wanted to ask it specific to skincare. not only is it interesting to see what has really worked for people, but it'll maybe highlight some products others are interested in trying ! so: what are specific products that would cause you to hyperventilate were you to run out ? mine currently are: cleansers CLINIQUE take the day off cleansing balm (makeup removal) NUDE SKINCARE perfect cleanse omega cleansing jelly (skin cleanser) PIXI glow mud cleanser (economical) OMOROVIZCA thermal cleansing balm (luxury) toners (acids & hydrating) FIRST AID BEAUTY facial radiance pads (AHA) PIXI glow tonic (AHA) PIXI milky mist (moisture) MURAD essential-c toner (moisture/essence) DR DENNIS GROSS ultra gentle alpha beta peel (AHA)... this is like a toner/serum/mask hybrid that i don't really know where to put on this list ! oils and serums CLARINS lotus facial oil CLARINS blue lotus facial oil MURAD hydro dynamic quenching essence (serum / luxury). VICHY aqualia thermal serum moisturizers AVEDA botanical kinetics hydrating face lotion AVEDA botanical kinetics soft creme (for p.m.) masks (i like to have an arsenal for different purposes) REN glycol lactic radiance renewal mask (resurfacing) PETER THOMAS ROTH rose stem cell mask (hydrating / soothing / toning / brightening) PIXI glow mud mask TRIALING ! (things i'm trying and i think could make the list after a bit more use) MURAD hydro-dynamic quenching essence. don't let the 'essence' word fool you--this is a hydration serum. lovely ingredients, and so far extraordinarily effective ADDED ! ORIGINS ginzing eye cream. i don't typically like "brightening" eye creams that brighten by having light reflectors, but what i do like about this cream is how hydrating it is. my eye area is happier than it's been in a while. REN vita mineral omega oil to be fair...i think this is a LOT to be considered truly HG. but you guys know i have a lot of steps in my daily routine, and these are tried-and-true loves of mine ! edited 2/21/17

I think I do everything I can. I moisturize twice a day, drink enough water, don't shower with hot water, use an overnight moisturizing face mask, and my skin still feels and looks dry. I don't know what else to do.
So I recently switched from Murad anti-aging/anti-acne treatment (wash, treatment, moisturizer) which I had been using for over a year, to Drunk Elephant. Went all-in on the glycolic, merula oil at night, vit C in the AM. And my pores starting getting clogged/blackheads showing up again, started getting breakouts I'd go back to the Murad but didn't feel it was treating my increasing fine lines and dark spots. Advice on a better combination of items? If I do nothing, I break out. J
I love the LXMI Crème du Nil Pore-Refining Moisture Veil but I travel a lot and every time this creme leaks out of the container. Does anyone have a suggestion I can try to avoid the leaks? I cannot imagine not using it but it is getting expensive to lose so much product all the time. I wish they would redesign the packaging as it seems this may be an issue. My original order leaked out and had to be replaced with the one I am using now. BTW....this stuff is so good...particularly after a long flight or a late night. I just love what it does for my skin.
Ive always had bad acne but im now 24 and for some reason it only appears on my lower cheeks. Im very light skined so i recently started to try contouring but every video says to blend the cheek makeup. When i do so i rub of concealer and foundation and expose my darks scars how do i blend my face without uncovering my dark acne scars anyone advice please thanks😯😞
Hello, beauties! This question has been unanswered for many years. I've read so many articles saying that it's always been that you cleanse and THEN exfoliate, however, there have been many studies suggesting that you could get even better results by exfoliating before you cleanse! I've tried both and it's seemed to be the exact same. What do all of you beauties do first? And how has it been working for you? Sincerely, HonestlyFab! xoxo
I have dry skin and some mild redness on my cheeks and chin and some mild acne along my jawline that Im pretty positive is hormonal acne. I need a good skincare regimen that will most importantly help with my acne if there is anything I can use for hormonal acne before having to break down and see a dermatologist and also some stuff for the dryness and redness that wont aggravate my acne anymore than it already is.
