There’s a set Fenty Skin Fenty Skin Travel Size Start'r Set that could be a good start for you. I don’t think they have too much in the anti-aging category but I do like the Fenty Skin Hydra Vizor Mineral SPF 30 Refillable Moisturizer which has a nice SPF, important for healthy skin! @Kennedy122

Hello Everyone I am new to all this. I have decided since I am approaching a new decade in life that I will attempt to turn back the clock. 😂 Therefore, I am learning about skincare routines. I have found I like Tatcha and Ranavat. To be honest, the olfactory qualities of these products is what attracts me to them. I am a fragrance person. Skincare, on the other hand, I am a novice. I was wondering if anyone would like to share with me some skincare rituals or products you found that worked well. Share any pointers or tips? I am particularly interested in knowing about removing a brown (dark) spot.

Just look at the questions on skincare items: Is the good for 12 year old skin? I'm 10 is this a good product? And they are getting all sassy: I disagree because a Sephora employee told me this was a good product. Really? A SALESPERSON told you the $80 product was good for your skin? Look at some of the reviews on skincare products. There are young girls posting pics of their puffy-red faces. I mean honestly, it's disgraceful - you can tell the review was dictated by the child "in their own words" and typed by an adult to sound authentic. I don't know what they think they are doing. Can they really not conceive that there are miserable people like me looking at the pics and going, "Ha ha." I wonder how cosmetic companies feel about products intended for adults getting bad reviews from children. I sort the reviews by age now, I really don't care what a 10 year old thinks about a product designed for mature skin. And yes, I have had encounters with Sephora Tweens in the wild. One that looked like Olive from "Little Miss Sunshine" was standing on line in front of me. Mom had on a Coach sweatshirt and Olive had a Coach handbag. At one point, Mom says, "Stop calling me Bro - I'm your mother." Okay then act like one. I'm guessing they were there to get products to hide the kid's double-chin. 2 more were wandering around with baskets brimming with skincare products. A man wearing camouflage was with them. I'm thinking he had them for the weekend and is buying their love after being told, "...but, Mom lets me." Look at online hauls. One mom apparently didn't even know what the bag had in it. She pulls out Gisou $42 honey-lip oil and sarcastically goes, "Lip-oil - that's just terrible." Well, the next 3 items were Charlotte Tillsbury Bronzer, Charlotte Tillsbury Contour Stick and a Charlotte Tillsbury concealer. What could this kid possibly be concealing and contouring? There are already parody haul videos "I went to Sephora and it was terrible. It was filled with old ladies. I think the one might have been 25." I think it's a spending power flex by parents like the woman in the Coach sweatshirt (honestly, how tacky) and other, like the guy in the camo are buying their childs love. I how companies start complaining about bad reviews being posted by children.

Hi @archanachinn ! You should ask The Ordinary directly at their site; they’re usually responsive to customer questions. I’m curious to see if they’ll tell you which one of all their vitamin A products is strongest. Meanwhile, I’ll ramble a bit about what I know of TO’s retinoid products: The Ordinary offers 2 kinds of retinoids: retinol and Granactive Retinoid (hydroxypinacolone retinoate, aka HPR). Among their retinols, their 2% is the strongest. Among their HPRs, their 5% is probably the strongest. But as for which is strongest among all their retinoid products (retinols and HPRs combined), well… HPR’s kinda complicated. HPR is an ester of retinoic acid. Do you already know how retinoids work, and how our cells must convert retinol to retinoic acid before it can activate and do its thing? HPR supposedly doesn’t need conversion. That means it can get straight to work, just like tretinoin does, so it should work faster than retinol. And it’s less irritating than tretinoin. (So is retinol.) In my own experience, HPR was even less irritating than retinol. But that doesn’t mean HPR is a one-for-one substitute of tretinoin. HPR is made of 10% retinoic acid ester and 90% solvent. So whenever you see a % of Granactive Retinoid, the true amount of active ingredient is 10% of what’s listed. Example: The Ordinary Granactive Retinoid* 2% Emulsion 1 oz/ 30 mL actually contains 0.2% retinoic acid ester. The highest % of tretinoin available (in the US) is 0.1%, if I recall correctly. I highly doubt 0.2% retinoic acid ester (2% Granactive Retinoid) is the same strength as 0.1% tretinoin, but I’ve seen no reliable strength conversion charts from a cosmetic chemist or board certified dermatologist so I could be wrong. I can’t even tell you what strength of retinol is equal to 2% Granactive Retinoid. That’s why it’d be interesting to hear what The Ordinary says about it themselves. HPR is a relatively new retinoid that’s still being studied. There’s far less clinical data about it than retinol and tretinoin, which have been much better and longer studied. So you’re kinda acting as a guinea pig when you use HPR. Eh, I’ve used it before with no adverse effects, and the products I used seemed effective. I’ve since moved on to retinaldehyde, which gets me a step closer to tretinoin without tret’s legendary side effects.

@tuxcedo if you live near a Sephora make an appointment for a makeover. They aren't free but I have always gotten a look I love. Just tell them your goals and they can work with you. If you don't live near a Sephora try a local department store.
