Dry
I am a HUGE fan of citrus and fruity scents. I don't care for the addition of florals or musks to anchor them in my lotion. I recently received the zesty lime Ultra Soft Cream and I'm in LOVE! Sniffing it in the container doesn't do it justice. The scent is much more obvious after application. Anyone else tried this one? I hope they keep it around for a long time.
Acne
Just wanted to let everyone know that I have been using calamine lotion on my face after I cleanse and tone nightly for about 4 months now. My skin's redness has greatly decreased and it acts like a spot treatment as well. My face is softer, smaller pores, smoother. I got the idea because I had tried Kate Somerville's Eradikate and thought it was too pricey and calamine lotion looks the same lol.   Check it out It's about $9 for a bottle that will last you months. I bought mine in December and still have it. I use about a tsp daily so it will last forever.

I got a full size sample of Bliss Fat Girl Slim at a sephora event. Anyone tried it? Funny name.
Combo / Normal
Hello! I have combination skin (super oily on the ''T'' zone and super dry on the chin and cheeks). I wanted to know which everyday routine do you guys recommend to have a fresh and natural looking ! (foundation, concealer and setting powder). Thank you.

What is the difference between Peter Thomas Roth Neuroliquid Volufill and Dr. Brandt crease release? Is one better than another? Are they both serums that you'd use a moisturizer over?   I am interested in something that will help with the forehead wrinkles.  Thanks!
Dry
A while back I received a sample of the amore pacific moisture bound rejuvenating serum. It worked incredible on my skin, I loved it. But, after doing some research I saw that a full size bottle is $100. I'm not looking to spend that much and I was wondering if anyone had found any other similar serums for a more reasonable price.   Thanks

I have my entire skincare regimen all worked out except for a moisturizer.  I need one for night time that will brighten, tighten and tone my skin.  I need another one for day time that will condition and protect my skin...something with SPF.  I'm set with cleanser, tone, serum, dark spot cream and so on.  I have oily/combo skin and I'm 34 years old.    I would appreciate any suggestions.  I'm also on BeautyLish.   fafi

Just wondering if anyone's tried any of their products, and what they think about them! I'm currently eyeing their night cream!

I received a sample of this with my recent order from their sale.  It looks interesting.  Has anyone tried it?  From the directions on my sample it sounded like it would be a good makeup remover before using my regular cleanser.  Just looking to see if anyone has any feedback because even across the internet I couldn't find much.   Thanks!

Bobbi browns newer palettes haven't doing so well review-wise?

I have noticed that Origins has discontinued their Brighter by Nature SPF 35 face moisturizer. Is there another Origins product set to take its place at Sephora? I'm currently using the Perfect World with SPF but don't like it quite as much. Thanks!

Hi ladies!  Just a quick note to let you know that Peter Thomas Roth is having a massive sale on several (looks like nine) of their skincare items over on their website. The popular retinol serum that retails for $85, for example, is on sale for $24!  So if you are in the market, you should check that out.

I was wondering if this works if it's worth the price and if it is good for dry sensitive skin

HELLO BT!  IT'S TIME FOR WEEK THREE!   Routine : day : -FAB Daily Cleanser -FAB Facial Radiance Pads (may switch when they run out) -FAB Ultra Repair Cream   night : -Current makeup remover; The Face Shop; Rice Water Bright Eye and Lip Makeup Remover -FAB Daily Cleanser (starting to run out D -FAB Facial Radiance Pads (may switch when they run out) -FAB Ultra Repair Cream -Ole Henriksen Ultimate Eye Lift Gel -BITE Agave Lip Mask   weekly (I'm on low supply): -Boscia Luminizing Black Mask (running out of this) -My Beauty Diary Aloe Mask (Last one!)   This Week's Skindition: EVERYTHINGS GOOD! So, because I love y'all, I feel like sharing my life story on BT in this journal today.  Skip this paragraph if you're completely uninterested in my stupid little affairs.  Today, I finally got to witness someone within my group of friends getting asked to winter formal.  Or at least, that's what I thought.  I was walking with one friend and we saw a poster and a crowd of people so I figured that someone was going to get asked.  Since this was my first time actually being witness to a proposal, I whipped out my phone and joined the crowd.  After a minute or two, I started asking them who was getting asked and a couple of them looked at me like I was mentally impaired, so I asked again.  My homie yelled at me "YOU, YOU FOOL!", and I stood there for another minute or two just going "huh?".  All in all, it took me about 5 minutes to figure out I was getting asked to winter formal.  I'm a fool.     Okay, back to the skincare stuff.  So the nightmare pimple I had last week just went MIA, which is something I'm sure its pimple friends would cry over, but I was having a little party when I realized the little devil was gone.  My skin is disgustingly oily these days though  If I run my fingers down my face, my fingers get all shiny.  I definitely need to switch to using the Ultra Repair Cream at night, and use a lighter moisturizer during the day.  The sunny side (because there must always be a sunny side of everything) of ultra oily face is that I now have a portable tempura frier.  Oiliness aside, my face is pretty clear, with the exception of a small bump that I caught while taking today's pictures Barely noticeable at this stage, and still easy to get rid of, but if I didn't catch it today, it'd probably grow into something I wished I killed before it hatched by tomorrow.  TY SOS journals.  I've been taking a break from makeup this week, although I'm still so addicted that I HAVE to use it on someone, even if it's not me, so my friends have been feeling my wrath this week.     Keeping Up with Skincare Goals:         So far, I've done a pretty good job with sticking to one routine and putting on SPF.  Unfortunately, I'm starting to run low on my FAB pads and cleanser, plus its 2x skincare points so I'm VERY tempted to cheat on my current skincare products.  The new Laura Mercier Tinted Moisturizer I purchased has SPF in it, so I'm covered everyday ^_^          Sadly, I've been neglecting my facials, cutting down on the oily foods (I blame the holidays), going to the sauna (I ran out of tickets!), and I can't stop rubbing my eyes (boring lectures make me sleepy D .        I'm also going to start exercising (or attempt to) since I've gotta lose some weight to fit into any dress -_-   Product Review: There's not much new stuff this week aside from the Laura Mercier Tinted Moisturizer.  I wouldn't really count that as skin care though.  I don't feel like it's moisturizing enough on its own, so I do wear it on top of the Ultra Repair Cream. To be honest, I feel like this tinted moisturizer really wasn't worth the price.  It offers no coverage and little moisture.  The only thing I use it for is the SPF.     Stuff I'm Getting (over time): Dear FAB, I apologize for being an adulterous being towards you, but I have a free spirit and a loving heart with lots of love to give, thus I must spread my wings and try other stuff from other brands too!  You know there's always a place for you in my heart of hearts <3  I've had dandruff woes this month, and I'm out of my shampoo and conditioner, so I figured it was about time to try a different kind.  I've put in a moisturizing mask, a blemish control mask, refill on the FAB pads (they grew on me :/), a toner (still not quite sure if I need it), a new makeup remover for when I'm on the go, a new facial cleanser, and all the hair crud.  Shoot...  That's a lot of money  I guess I can do without the sponge, the hydrating mask, scalp treatment, and toner...  or can I?  Enable me please. Making Use of Rouge: I figure that I might as well break up my order into several orders so I can get more samples.  So far, I feel like this is the only advantage Rouge has given me, but I'm feeling guilty just thinking about it...  Do any of you do this?

Has anyone tried this?  I'm told it's easier on the skin than the Clarisonic.  Does anyone know?  Thanks!

Just wanted to let everyone know that the PTR sample is a scrub, not the Laser-free Resurfacer serum. I thought I was getting a really good deal. Well, they say if it's too good to be true....

I'm looking for an under eye cream that does not burn or irritate if some happens to get in the eyes. Also something that doesn't have almond oil or soy in it. Can anyone suggest an eye cream like this?
Oily
Hello there!    Since I was 15 years old (now I'm 34) the only problem I had was T-zone oily skin so I used Lancôme Hydracontrole for years, then they replaced for Lancôme Pure Focus, they finally discontinued Pure Focus, I contacted Lancôme and they were useless, they said they didn't have any other replacement.   I really would like to stick to Lancôme if you know what product I could us. My only concerns are the tzone oily skin and I really need some SPF.   Any advice will be truly appreciate it!   Thank you!

All of the sudden my chest and face have broken out with a rash like patch. It is red, dry, and it itches like crazy!! Maybe Rosacia or Eczema? i probably should go to a Dermatologist, but I wanted to see if anyone had any quick fixes for something like this! Does anyone recommend something that will help? Thanks!!!!
Natural & Organic
Does anyone has any experience with the Lea Journo plum oil?  It looks interesting, and the reviewers uniformly LOVE it.  I've always liked using oils on my skin, and just bought the NUDE oil after trying it in samples.  Is plum good for the skin or just the hair?  Thanks for any answers!

Has anyone tried any of the Maskeraide masks?    Not at sephora, but I have been eyeing these as [cheaper] alternatives to the masks I have been using.    They have a variety (I believe 6 different) masks, and I was hoping to hear some feedback on them!   Ps. For all my ladies and gents sitting in front of BT tonight, WOOO! Happy New Years everyone!

For those with moderate to severe acne, cut out (or down on) dairy products. Use an at-home mask with oatmeal, chocolate powder, honey and cottage cheese.   For those with eczema: Take warm, short showers (not hot). Don't use wash clothes, they are too irritating. Moisturize immediately after the shower. Look for products with oatmeal, licorice extract and ceramides. Recommendation: Eucerin Eczema Relief.   Happy New Year and I wish lovely skin for all of you!
