I just want to say THANK YOU SO MUCH to Sephora and Sol de Janeiro for sending me the original Brazilian Bum Bum Cream and the new Acai Body Power Cream au gratis! I have never tried the Bum Bum Cream but have heard amazing things, and am so excited to have the chance to try the new version as the same time. They both smell quite nice! The Bum Bum Cream is slightly tropical but in no way overpowering, and the Acai Body has a fresh, almost pine, sweet forest scent. Both are in no way greasy. I think these will make a nice addition to my body care collection!
So recently I have notice that I have some fine lines appearing on my forehead lately. Usually my skin is normal/combination. It can get really dry during the winter but oily in the summer. These fine lines are really bugging me out lately and I just don't know if I should be using an anti-aging product or something else... like a exfoliator. I was curious to know if anybody else was having a similar situation and what product there were using to treat there problem area. Any recommendations would help. Thanks.
thoughts on farmacy? i have combination skin that's sometimes oily and sometimes dry and was wondering if this is a good brand to use. I need skin care products that aren't too harsh on my skin and can really make it feel and look good. would be nice if it wasn't acne prone too.
Hi all! I am 28 and an RN. I recently changed departments and now work in the operating room, (No windows, dry/cold air). As a result, my skin has started having more breakouts and uneven color. I have been blessed with relatively good skin (combination I think), and with the exception of a few breakouts around my menstrual cycle I have had to do very little to keep clear skin. As a result, I know NOTHING about a skin care regimen. I know at this point I should start thinking about anti aging products but have no idea where to start. Any suggestions for an AM/PM routine that won't cost more than my mortgage would be appreciated!
I purchased the Bobbi Brown Face Base yesterday after hearing RAVE reviews. Today, I tried it and put my foundation directly on top after letting it set on my face with no additional primer. By lunch, the foundation had broken up quite severely and redness was most definitely on display! Should I try it as a 2-in-1 with a different foundation or add another primer on top?
I'm in my early 30's and have decided to stop using my drugstore moisturizer and switch to an anti-aging skincare line (eye cream and daily moisturizer and/or serum). I want one that is FREE OF PARABENS AND PHTHALATES. My skin is normal and i have no brown spots or major wrinkles but i want to start using something before I start getting wrinkles. I have been researching Perricone MD and FRESH but have read many reviews that perricone MD causes alot of rashes and that Fresh dries out skin (probably because Glycerin is one of the first ingredients) Any thoughts? I have also been looking at DRUNK ELEPHANT Shaba Complex™ Eye Serum, Dr Dennis Gross Skincare Triple Correction Eye Serum, OLE HENRIKSEN Truth Serum® Vitamin C Anti-Aging Collagen Booster and CAUDALIE Premier Cru The Eye Cream . Thoughts? Any suggestions on other brands? They don;t all have to be from the same brand...could be one brand of eye cream and another brand for the serum, etc. Oh and im currently breast feeding so cant use anything with retinol right now but am open to suggestions to use once im done. Please help with any advice!
Hey Beauties, Right now I have combo skin (normal sometimes oily t-zone and dry skin on the cheeks) and some redness. I'm looking for a cleanser (currently using Neutrogena but I had too switch to ultra gentle, and I think it's drying out my skin!) A new toner, a face mist (currently using the one from tarte but I'm not sure If it's enough for my skin), a moisturizer (i'm using renewed hope in a jar, Which I love in the summer but I don't think it's enough for the winter) and an eyecreme (i use clinique pep start but it's not enough for my under eye and it doesn't really do anything for the shadows under my eyes). So please tell me your favorites........ Doesn't have to be all high-end stuff, if you can recommend some things from the drugstore that would be great too. I love to mix it up! Thank you
Hello! I was hoping you guys could help me figure out if i'm purging or having a bad reaction to the Drunk Elephant C-Firma Day Serum. I started it on Tuesday, using it every second morning. I have since broken out in four new pimples and one that was barely there when I started has come to the surface. I know that Vitamin C can cause a purging like this and I was just hoping for some help determining if that's what's happening. I would really like to know before I use it for a month and totally wreck my face (it scars really easily unfortunately). Thanks in advance!
My boyfriend gets red, irritated skin in the winter. He says it is dry but there is no noticeable dryness. He uses cetaphil cream and aquaphor but the skin is still red on most days. I had him do a charcoal mask with me and it seemed to help but the redness returned the next day. Any suggestions on products he can use daily to reduce the redness and irritation during the winter months?
I am extremely disappointed in Sephora. After all the money spent online and in stores, the only times I've ever really gotten samples is when ordering online. I thought the only time I got samples is when I did order online. As someone said, you shouldn't have to ask for samples when shopping in stores. So the only way for me to get samples is to PAY $10 a month for the Play box! So disappointing!!
Anyone have any experiences with tretinoin cream? I've been using 0.05 for almost a month now every night and my skin keeps looking worse and worse everyday. So much more acne and I swear I have more lines on my face now than before I started using it. I heard it's so good for anti aging and acne but so far my results have been absolutely dreadful.
Hey everyone, I'm new here looking for some advice for my skin. I've always had acne, until 2 years ago. I had perfect skin, minimal breakouts. Somehow since mid August of 2016 I have started breakout like crazy, not severe, but somewhat concerning for me since I haven't had my face like this since I was a teenager. Anyways was wondering what do you recommend for my type of skin? I was using Murad Clarifying Cleanser, but now my skin gets really dry after and I get this tight feeling. I was using this product before my acne started happening. I changed it up and started using Purity from Philosophy, same thing, this cleanser left my face like squeaky rubber, Then I recently started trying Clarins Orange Exfoliating cleanser and it does help me out tremendously since my bumps decrease in size after using and keeps my skin clear, but it still leaves me somewhat dry. Regarding on the moisturizer I've been using Garnier Moisture Rescue Refresh. What can I do to return moisture in my face? Or is there a routine I could follow including the Murad and Clarins to see if that keeps things under control?
I've been using dr Dennis gross peel pads and they helped my skin so much !! I decided to get the ferculic acid + retinol serum and moisturizer ( since it says follow up with a moisturizer from their brand ). I didn't notice a difference in the first three days ( I wasn't expecting any so soon anyway, I know it takes time ) anyway I put the glam glow mask on ( the white one ) and the next day I woke up with small tiny bumps all over my face! with foundation they are really noticeable and under light it's super noticeable! Idk what to do how how to get rid of them!! Should I stop using the serum and moisturizer? I'm guessing mixing the ferculic acid + retinol with what ever is in glam glow wasn't a good idea !! What should I do ? I don't want to go to a dermatologist because they made my first worse last time !
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?
Hi! I've been using Retin-A for 6 months now, and my face is always so red. Does anyone have suggestions for how to treat and reduce the redness? It's the only side effect that I am still experiencing with tretinoin.
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?
Hello, I am a competitive swimmer with normal but extremely sensitive skin. I spend close to 20 hours in a chlorinated pool a week and my face gets dry to the point it is constantly flaking off. It also becomes red and blotchy as well (similar to an allergic reaction rash). Can anyone recommend any products to reduce redness? Right now I am just using a ton of Vasaline. Thanks!
