times gives everyone lines on their face ... from living ... but lines from smiling or laughing look so much better than the ones one can get from scowling or frowning ... they do say by the age of 40 a person has the face they deserve, the face their character has made ...

Anne who thinks that one can tell what a grown-up (post 40) is like by how their face has set

I ended up getting this:
http://m.vitacost.com/derma-e-age-defyi ... pycnogenol

I'm not at home and I didn't want to wait two and a half weeks til I am to start an eye cream. I'm still going to get the one Jess uses in the morning but I'll start with this.

DermaE has a new BB cream, too, though I don't know anything about it.

My smiley lines hardly show if I'm not wearing any makeup. And I actually have really good skin (speaking objectively, of course :) but put any makeup on me and wham there are the lines! Defo worse with powder, so I totally avoid that now. But even a BB cream seems to bring them out.

Do you use primer? Like I know technically bb creams claim to do it all in one step and say you don't need primer because it's built in, but they lie, if I don't wear primer it's frighteningly obvious I'm wearing foundation/tinted moisturizer/bb cream etc. ALL THE PRIMER, ALL THE TIME.

What's a good primer? I already have lip and eye primer, might as well get face primer too. Preferably a brand I can get at Sephora?

I tend to use cheap primer, like the $3 elf one, but the Hourglass Veil Mineral Primer is vegan, and supposed to be really good, and is available at Sephora. Too Faced Primed and Poreless is decent too, and vegan. I think some of the Tarte primers are vegan as well.

The hourglass primer is ridiculous. I couldn't justify using it regularly/replacing when it ran out.

Have you tried both of the Hourglass primers? The mieral veil and the No 28 serum (or something like that)?

I haven't checked their veganism, but if they are vegan, have you guys tried their lighting powders?

Most of the lighting powders should be vegan, my friend who works for Hourglass said they are, there's one or two shades that contain carmine, but someone on the makeup thread said they're clearly labelled as to which shades.

I only tried the mineral veil. I liked it a lot, but I'm not going to sacrifice something else to buy it regularly, if that makes sense.

I've been using Key's Soap Solar RX as my sunscreen for years, and yesterday went to order some more. I noticed they have a new line of tinted products and HD powders:

http://keys-soap.com/keysblog/?p=2300

I can't make out exactly what they're supposed to do, they sound like they're supposed to be BB-esque. But I ordered the tinted sunscreen to try, anyway.

I bought a travel size of the mineral veil primer and I like it. It actually gets rid of all the red in my skin which even the ELF color correcting primer doesn't. It is super pricy though, so I also bought Tarte clean slate to compare them. If the Tarte does as good a job getting rid of the red I'll probably stick with that.

thanks blondiefk.

I really want to try their lighting powders since so many people rave about them, but powder always accentuates lines I didn't even know were there (exception being I always lightly set my under-eye concealer). I can't imagine them actually helping. But I want the claims to be true!

an update as fall is here- my skin is usually a disaster this time of year, with lots of pimples in the rosacea zone (cheeks) and from hormonal stuff (jawline). i am at prime PMS time and my skin is superb. there are a few papules, maybe 1/3 of the usual.
i've been using the clarisonic every morning in the shower with some random glycerin soap from the indian store. every few days i skip the AM shower and wash my face with Let the Good Times Roll from Lush, which smells like angels petting unicorns in a cake batter factory. At Lush they tried to talk me out of it because it has cinnamon which is not great for sensitive skin, but it's been fine. it has a lot of oil in it, but it doesn't make my skin break out, and even better, it means i don't need cream that day.
the clarisonic, with time, has made my skin really amazing. i was not a believer in any way, but it's remarkable. i am surprised that i still do have blackheads in some places, because the whole thing with the clarisonic is clearing out pores, but they just don't seem to get infected the way they used to.

There's nothing you can do, I mean wash your face and all that, but the hard nubs you just kind of have to wait out and try not to pick at. They can take weeks to fully go away, so it's hard enough to deal with without throwing scabs into the mix.

I still love the Arbonne skincare stuff, but it is SO EXPENSIVE. I only want to buy it and use it in the daytime since it is $40 a pop (with discount)

I recently bought the Yes to Blueberries Age Refresh Overnight Cream.
It is on sale right now at Ulta. All Yes to Blueberries is!
http://www.ulta.com/ulta/browse/product ... rod3280323

Only been using it a few nights, but I have noticed a difference. For starters, it didn't break me out. Also, I can still kind of feel it on my face in the morning in the shower...its a nice thick moisturizer. And my face is very soft.

$16.99 is a great price. Even full price of $19.99 is pretty good.

definitely second the yes to blueberries night cream. IMO way better than all of the high end night creams I've tried over the years. If you've oily skin it might be too emollient (?)

Derme-e makes some good night creams, as well.
