Just a bit of a back story- I have oily acne prone skin. After months of experimenting with skincare products I  finally was able to clear up most of the acne. For a month I had the best skin of my life, it was hydrated and not super oily with the occasional pimple that I could get rid of in 2 days.   A while ago I got the deluxe sample of the Sunday Riley Luna Sleeping Oil. I started using the night I received it. I used it for about 5 days and I noticed that the area on the sides of my nose had a dry patch on both sides. I could tell because my foundation would cling to that area and it didnt look smooth anymore, my face had texture where I didnt have it before. By the 7th day for the first time ever my skin felt dry and tight, even after I moisturized. I could apply enough moisturizer, my skin would just soak it up. Apart from being dry it would still get oily in my tzone through out the day.     I realized that the Luna sleeping oil was the only thing that I had really changed in my routine and stopped using immediately. My skin has not been able to recover since. It doesnt feel tight but it still looks very dry and it showed when I applied makeup. My foundation clings and cracks on the sides of where nostrils are and looks really dry. The texture really never disappeared but it did subside a bit. I increased my water intake and stop using a bunch of my acne products that would dry out my skin in hopes of it helping, but I cant seem to get it to the state it was before.    Did this happen to anyone else using luna oil??   What are some product recomendations for people with dehydrated/oily/acne prone skin?

I've seen several individuals recently mention that juicing has helped their skin.  I was wondering if anyone would like to share recipes and/or recommendations as far as what has worked for them.  I'm also really curious about how much  to drink each day.   I've had a NutriBullet for about 6 months and I've been off and on about using it.  I was really good in January then fell off the wagon.  Over the next week I'm really hoping to get into the habit of juicing every day and eating healthier.  I'm off work four days next week, so I thought it would be a good time to concentrate on starting some healthful habits.   Thanks!

Hello:   I can't decide which moisturizer is better: Lancome Bienfait or Bobbi Brown Hydrating face cream. I have oily skin mainly in the t-zone area with breakouts pretty often. I'm 25 years old and I've used Lancome for several years but I've heard many wonderful things about the Bobbi Brown one so I wasn't sure which one was better. If any of you ladies have used these I'd appreciate your opinions!

Has anybody had any social problems while wearing off beat colors of make-up? (I.E. neon colored brows, blue, green or black lipstick, hot pink eyeshadow) My husband (very gently and very kindly) asks me not to wear my Jeffree Star Weirdo lipstick if we go any where during the day on the weekends. (And he has NEVER asked something of that of me before). Also, some of my local Sephora sales gals said that some customers avoided her when she wore blue or black lipstick and that during big meetings with sales reps they would avoid calling on her for answers. I can imagine a fair amount of older people would cringe, but  has anybody else had any (small) bumps in the road with wild make-up?

This isn't available in the U.S. until next year, but I found it on Amazon for $27 and just ordered it. I'm really intrigued by the science behind it and I'm hoping it works well. Imabeautygeek has a story on her blog and if you're interested, I suggest reading it.      Here's part of her review:  avène triacnéal expert's anti-bacterial molecule The key to Avène TriAcnéal Expert's formula is something called Diolenyl, a devious new Trojan-horse molecule that functions like ant bait for P. acnes bacteria, the nasties that cause pimples. Avène's umbrella company Pierre Fabre designed Diolenyl to resemble skin's triglyceride lipid molecules, which contain a sugar that P. acnes bacteria sees as breakfast, lunch and dinner. Diolenyl's sugar component is similar, with a diabolical twist: when zit bacteria starts munching, it activates two agents within the molecule. One is an anti-inflammatory ingredient to protect the skin and the other hamstrings acne bacteria's ability to multiply. Sneak attack!   Ingredients:   Spoiler (Highlight to read)

Hello guys im going to switch brand from Paulas Choice to Biodroga most because i dont like their PC spf Moisturizers  i use one for sensitive skin right now with spf 30 and with the retinol super antioxidant serum and it **bleep** up my skin. I used that serum with another daycream and never had any problem at all.    I like that serum but in the same time its a silicone serum that can cause break outs. Maybe i stick with it as a night serum maybe not.     Anyway anyone in here who tried Biodroga MD Skin Booster Uv-Protection Cream Spf 30 or 50? I want hydration on my skin and im planing to buy it with the BIODROGA MD SKIN BOOSTER Advanced Formula Vitamin C Concentrate 15 serum you think that will give me enough hydration because i want the spf factor or should i buy an extra   Biodroga MD Perfect Hydration 24-h Care or    Biodroga MD ANTI-AGE Collagen Boost Day Care and switch over to lets say the Biodroga MD Skin Booster intense Moisture serum .     Im asking because Paulas Choice spf 30 moisture **bleep**ed up my skin and i dont liker their moisturizers at all my skin dosen´t feel hydrated more dry and sticky like an irritating glue so yeah no now i switch over to Biodroga MD instead.   So whats your advice?

I was wondering if anyone here has experience with the Cane+Austin Body Retexture Pads.     I'm looking for a body product that contains a chemical exfoliant and  I want to stay away from heavy moisturizers, so I thought that these pads might be a good option.  Unfortunately they're pretty expensive for experimentation purposes.     I'd also be open to suggestions for other products.   Thanks!
Antiaging
I am 45 in one week! I have just noticed "crosshatch" crepey skin on my cheeks. I have combination skin and most antiaging products cause me to break out in blemishes. I currently use alpha hydroxy acid and salcidic (sp?) acid in light lotions plus mineral sunscreen by Olay every day. If I put anything other than the salcidic acid on at night I wake up to zits...I use this to control blemishes, fade sun marks, and reduce fine lines. I still have pretty good skin tone so I don't use foundation...I don't like the added color nor do I like having makeup on my entire face. I am religious about my sunscreen. Is there anything I can do to take care of my middle age skin that won't cause me to breakout? This new crepey crosshatch stuff is alarming! Just part of aging?

I have combination skin and NUDE Purify works awesome as a moisturizer.  However, I really just can't afford it.  Any suggestions?   I have tried Seaberry Oil from Fresh, I think it is way too oily...

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

Hello! I have been looking for a new skin care regimine and have been out of luck after buying expensive recommendations that do nothing at all. My skin is very dry but I don't like an extremely dewy look with my makeup! I have heard of the Sanitas skin care and although it is not well known I have heard great reviews, has anyone tried this line or have a recommendation for other products in an dry skin care routine?

Anyone picking up one or two of these during the sale? Anyone have a link for swatches? I can't find any.
