Trying to maybe clear up my issues with some pictures of my skin- it's not really acne that I think is my problem it's more uneven skin tone and marks or discoloration- in the light you can see an uneven texture and makeup doesn't look smooth- I get occasional whiteheads or pimples but not all over Again in I wan using adapalene but haven't seen results clearing up the issues I see it just gets flaky and irritated- I am looking into glycol ic acid or some other regimen to try , any advice will help!m
I have never had problem skin until recently. I do think hormone changes are a main cause, but I need advice on a great face wash. My skin is normal to dry and I get occasional blemishes around my menstrual cycle, and I almost always have cystic type areas with no head on them. I do have an exfoliator I use regularly, but I need a daily face wash to not dry me out and help with my issue! Thanks!
Just wanted to create a forum where everyone can vent and am also curious as to how bad it can get or if I'm the only one that feels angry and embarrassed after leaving my local Sephora for being treated badly. Please feel free to share your stories!
Hi everyone, I am trying to decide what peel to buy. I am looking for something to smooth my rough skin texture; I also have a few acne scars and sun spots. After reading reviews, I am trying to decide between the following but am open to other suggestions. I am trying to stay around $50 and under. -REN glycol lactic radiance renewal mask -Murad Intensive-C radiance peel -Ole Henriksen lemon strip flash peel Thanks for any advice you may have!
So I've recently posted much about my skin care concerns and asked for suggestions (bumpy like texture, some discoloration, some acne clogged pores) I've been using adapalene cream prescribed by my derm for awhile and it's not really showing much results and leaves me with dry flaky or irritated skin........ ive been looking into and very curious about ditching the adapalene and trying glycolic acid- I'm looking for product recommendations and any experiences with this I currently use fresh soy cleanser, dr jart water fuse gel,sea berry oil thanks!!!
Not sure how many of you are interested in this line, but it's huge on Instagram. Many people are ordering from them, myself included, for a dupe of LC Cashmere. Well an eagle eyed IG user found a sexual harassment lawsuit against them. And it's seriously gross. I can't post the link here but you can search easily online for John Davler Inc. lawsuit. The VP in question is named Christina Yang. You can also find the link on my IG page. My username is spookifyme. I really try to support small companies, but I cannot tolerate this type of behavior. The lawsuit is ongoing, they're still trying to wiggle their way out and even tried to make their insurance company responsible. The courts said, uhhh no. I'm taking my money elsewhere. Way too many other companies out there.
What's your nightly, skincare routine? Feel free to ask me any questions about any of the products I use or reasons why I use them! About me: Soon to be 28, Upstate NY climate, combo skin that's becoming more "normal". Night routine: Cleanser: I switch it up between GlamGlow "Youthcleanse", Ole Henriksen and Cliniques green bottle. I use to use Murad and I loved it! I think I'm going to buy some more because I don't think I quite using it for any reason. Essence: Yes,this is an Asian skincare step, feel free to ask if you're not sure what I'm talking about. Missha's "Time Revolution". Toner: Biologique Recherché famous "Lotion P50" , phenol free version. When I feel like I need more Salicylic acid, I will apply Clinique's "Acne Solutions Clarifying Toner" on top of the BR "lotion P50" Serum: Algenist "Genius C Serum" around eyes and whole forehead. Ole Henriksen "Truth Serum" on my cheeks, chin and nose. Algenist= super expense but awesome with the wrinkles/lines. Ole Henriksen- super plumping, evens out skin tone, but not great for lines . Retinol: 2-3x a week I skip the Genius C Serum and use Paula's Choice "1% retinol" mixed with my moisturizer. I read somewhere that the Retinol and Vitamin C Serum work effectively at different PH levels, so in order to not cancel them out, you shouldn't use them together. No idea if this is true but I'm not going to experiment when Algenist's Genius serum is $115 an oz. Moisturizer: Cerave PM- hyaluronic acid, ceramides and niacinimide- yeah, all for less than $15 a bottle. LOVE. In the winter, I layer Nature Republics "Super Aqua Max Combination Watery Cream" on top of my moisturizer. I will also use this alone during the summer time when I need cooling hydration.
I have really strange skin. One day it could be perfectly fine just the regular oils like always. Then the next day, I have dry flaky skin with some redness. Pretty much it comes and it goes, but it happens especially now since it's winter time. I need something I can use during the times I get the dry, flaky, red skin. This only happens on my face, and certain parts too. It happens on the sides of my mouth, right beside my nose, and my forehead. I've tried everything and nothing works, other products either damage my skin or don't do anything. I also have fair/sensitive skin so it's hard finding certain things that work. What's a product that works that isn't way too expensive? Around $20-$50? Please help me, I don't know what to do anymore, and this really lowers my self-esteem. EDIT: I bought something that is totally the best deal ever and has become my ultimate favorite mosturizer and works extremely well for this dry flaky skin problem. I saw here on the online sephora website, this First Aid Beauty Ultra Repair Cream and I saw it had really great reviews, it is the best mosturizer I've used lately. I bought this on December 9th, today is December 12th and I've yet to see any flakiness or any irritation and my skin feels really hydrated. I only bought the 2 oz. tube since I only had $20 on me at the time, which is perfectly fine because I don't pile on a bunch of mosturizer on my face just a couple of drops and I'm great. Plus it doesn't make my skin oily or shiny, but it doesn't dry it out or burn my skin either. Best $12 I've ever spent.
Going to Vegas and I have my Cart already to check out here for some glam- however- I am looking for a lip gloss that will give me that nude ultra shiny look. Pinkish ok. I have fair skin, red hair, blue eyes... My younger sister- who looks older than me- likes to tell me my skin is sallow. I guess she thinks I am yello. LOL. Any advice? I do use buxom in Emma and it doesn't give me the shine I want. Am I looking rfor two products or can it be found in one?
How should I go about introducing skincare products to my younger brother? He's turning 23 in May. He doesn't use any type of skincare products AT ALL. He's autistic so he thinks that skincare is a girl thing and he has this weird compulsion to shave his face. He uses an electric shaver every single day but he legit has no facial hair so all he's doing is irritating the crap out of his skin. His skin is super dry, red in patches, obviously irritated. It looks bad. I want to try to slowly introduce products to him that will first of all help target these problems and then second of all slowly build a very basic skincare routine. I was looking at the Jack Black line and was wondering if someone could give me some feedback on the items I'm interested in or if you think there are other items that would help his situation. First, everyone needs a lip balm!! And he has crazy chapped lips too. This can be a small thing to get him interested but I think he might view this as "lip gloss" and girly. And I hear good things about them as well so I wouldn't mind keeping it if he didn't use it. For skincare I'm looking at the Post Shave Cooling Gel. I get that it's supposed to be for people that use razors but the description of the product is everything that he needs it to be. And of course he'll need a moisturizer, been checking out the Double Duty Face Moisturizer. There are a lot of nice sets but I don't want to invest a ton of money on products he might not even use and I don't want to overwhelm him with all the stuff that comes in a set. I was thinking of just focusing on the bare essentials of what he needs and then if he likes it and uses it I would slowly buy him more. **EDIT: Just want to say thank you to everyone who posted! I had a busy day (business test!) so I wasn't online today. I think I'm going to buy that pack of 3 lip balms so I can keep one. I want to see what the craze is all about.
Hello Beauties. I am looking for face serum and moisturizer day and night. Special concern about skin glowing and brightening result. I have dry patches and dull no radiant skin and i hate it. Suggestions plz. Thanks
What primer would be best for someone who has sensitive skin that breaks out easily? I tried smashbox and my face turned red and laura mercier made me break out heavily. I also tried bare minerals but didn't see a change in makeup lasting.
Hi everyone! Just wanted to share some swatches and photos of Shade 005, available tomorrow on Sephora.com. We'll be checking back later today, so feel free to ask any questions about the shade! We're calling this one Lavender Thistle - it's a hazy lilac!
The Extraordinary Rewards issue got me thinking, is declining customer service on a Sephora level or mainly contributed to the parent company LVMH? Sephora aside, I’ve had horrid customer service experiences with Louis Vuitton in the past. A quick Google search for “LVMH poor customer service” resulted in 152,000 results with titles such as “Louis Vuitton – Worst customer service” and “Disgusting service from Tag Heuer service center!!” Just curious what others opinions are on this.
Hi everyone, I have had dry, slightly combination skin (in that the t-zone is oilier, but not really that much). I've never had to deal with breakouts before. However, of late, I have been noticing that the t-zone pores look larger, and I end up having a few breakouts on my cheek as well. Am I overdoing the moisturizing/hydrating bit in my skincare routine? At night, I cleanse with the Ole Henriksen Pure truth cleanser, then with the Fresh Soy Cleanser. I then use the FAB radiance pads and then use Boscia's Tsubaki Beauty Oil and follow up with a hydrating night cream. Is that too much? Should I replace the Tsubaki beauty oil with another serum?
I started using my Mia 2 in January but I switched to Proactiv on the first of March and haven't used my Mia 2 since - I'm afraid the little beads/rough texture of Proactiv's cleanser could harm it! Is it okay to use them together? Thanks!
Do you agree with her views on skincare products? I'm on a hunt for my Summer night serum & moisturizer. I think I'm going to purchase the Perricone Blue Plasma even though it stinks so bad of fish & I hate fish. I've been researching products a lot and one of the sites I was on was Paula's Choice. She is not a fan of the serum... Actually the more I read through her "beautypedia" reviews, it seems like she's not a fan of a lot of products. I also got a feeling she was mainly trying to push her own products and Olay. Examples: - She's against treatment cleansers since it's just "washed down the drain". I have to disagree with this. When I use a treatment cleanser, although they can be drying, I do see improvement in my breakouts. - Witch Hazel is bad. I find witch hazel to be an important ingredient when choosing a toner. She think it's just as bad as alcohol if not worse. Products she gave a "poor" rating to: - Anthony Logistic's Glycolic cleanser got a poor rating because it doesn't contain any glycolic acid. - doctor dennis gross's A/B pads since we can just skip step 2 by simply splashing water on our face to deactivate step 1. - Dior Capture Totale One Essential Serum because it's not a "miracle serum" since it's primarily just "water, slip agents, and alcohol" - ExfoliKate - Just about every Ole Henriksen product I love - Origins Checks & Balances, Charcoal Mask & every other decent product from them - Most Murad products I do agree with a few points she makes, like companies need to stop putting active ingredients in clear vials so the sun doesn't break down the properties of the treatment. Also jar packaging is a big no-no for her. I understand that some creams are too thick to be put in a pump, but what about those airless jars that Bosica & Dermadoctor are using? I hate sticking my fingers in jars & the air does break down the active ingredients over time... Overall though, I don't think I'll be going to her site when I'm researching a new product I want to try.
I am in love with Caudalie's new Instant Detox Mask and I am really interested in trying their new Moisturizing Mask! So far, the moisturizing mask only has 1 review. I'm wondering if any of you have tried it yet and what your thoughts are? I, personally, am worried about it causing breakouts. I would like to use this mask when I'm feeling particularly dry like after a day in the sun or when a heavy dose of makeup has sucked the life out of my face. During the winter, I would layer Nature Republic's "Super Aqua Max Combination Watery Cream" over my moisturizer and never had any issues. Now that it's summer I apply it to a bare face and get loads of cool hydration. About me: I have normal to combination skin. I'm prone to breakouts when it comes to moisturizers but I don't have any issues with Cerave PM moisturizer or the aforementioned Nature Republic. So far, my skin has been great the last three months
Hi again guys! Okay so I suffer with bad break outs and being a picker and tempted to pick my spots i've left myself with scaring!! silly of me obviously. But I was wondering what can help fade them away. Home remedies or CHEAP products as I can't afford expensive stuff! I have sensitive skin and combination skin. ALSO on my forehead i seem to have loads and loads of spots but they're not extremely visible and they don't come to the surface where they are white heads...They're literally JUST THERE. how can i get rid of this or help get rid of it?!! I've always dreamed of having lovely skin. my skin used to be great when i was 14 but when i turned 15 ( 18 this year ) BOOM break out into millions of spots! ANY advice is appreciated i could really use it! Thanks a bunch!!!
So, the inherited caves beneath my eyes are more noticeable now I got rid of a lot of the darkness, and the husband thinks Juverderm fillers might be the answer. He even offered to buy them for me for Christmas. He thinks I'm spending to much on serums and creams and figures fillers could work out less expensive ... Frankly I'm kind of scared of the idea, since I've never had botox even, and when my ankle broke in two places in the summer, they wanted to stick a metal pin in it, but I wouldn't let them, as I'm afraid of being operated on ... Please share any thoughts/experiences with me. I'm definitely struggling to get used to the fact that I don't really look like me anymore, but fillers seems like such an extreme solution (even if they do cost less than the $1,500 a month I spend on skincare ...) Thanks in advance for responding!
