At the moment I am in love with Organic Pharmacy. I used to use Vichy which is very good but chemical-y. I use the lightest cream any brand has because I have normal to combination skin and my skin gets clogged if I use to heavy a cream. That was a mistake I made for years.

the only (literally) moisturizer that doesn't cause a reaction for my skin is Oil of Olay, for sensitive skin. I can't even use the one with spf in it-but it's truly amazing. I've been using it for 2 years now and even though I've spent tons of $$ on other kinds I always go back.

Can anyone recommend a moisturiser for combination skin that could stop shine/promote radiance and perhaps clear up post-acne scars too? Or just any of the above qualities will do. Thanks in advance

hi guys!

i just ordered embryolisse from http://store.yahoo.com/thebeautycata...bryolisse.html. have any of your guys tried this product before? i bought the "24 hr miracle cream" since i have dry skin. i've heard so many great things about it and a lot of models and make-up artists seem to use it so i figured i'd give it a shot.

but i'd love to hear someone's review on their products.

thanks!

It seems that all the moisturizers I try leave this film on my skin, and even if I touch my skin it comes off in little clumps. Also when I try putting concealer on after moisturizing it ALL comes off in that area..with little clumps EVERYWHERE. If I try to brush them off it creates more..

So basically, I was wondering if anyone has any recommendations for fast absorbing moisturizers? I have fairly dry skin, and would like a moisturizer with a pearly or thick texture.

Thank you in advance! And I'm truly sorry if there's already a topic on this!
OMG the flaking thing happens to me too with some moisturisers! How weird is it! I have to wear a different one if I know I'm going to be putting makeup on over the top! Neutrogena's moisturiser with SPF 15+ in the pump bottle goes on great undermakeup! - It doesn't make it flake off! It absorbrs really quickly and is non-greasy! I have dry skin too and I find it really great! Hope that helps!

Can someone recommend to me a thick moisturizing creme that doens't have any mineral oil, patrolatum, patroleum in it? I realized that they reason why my skin breaks out is because of all of these ingredients. Thanks a lot!

I think this is really an excellent cream and one that I do not think many people know about. I recommend Skincando's Miracle Cream. It is really unique and one of my favorite discoveries. I initially thought it was too rich for me--but that is not so. Your skin just drinks it up and when you use it at night, you wake up with beautiful skin. Check out their website.

http://www.skincando.com/

Their Combat Ready Balm is amazing. If you have a red spot, it fixes it.

L'Occitane's Immortelle Precious Cream is nice too although I am not sure about all of the ingredients. They do list them online.

I use Extra Virgin Olive Oil as a moisturizer and it works for my combo skin when I mix some Tea Tree Oil with it to put on to the the zits and so on.

It's so good and so cheap!

at the moment im using Dr Hauschkas philosophy of not wearing moisturiser to bed and i was surprised that my skin didnt dry out completely. i guess the skin does need to detox at night. does anyone else follow this? im not sure how its going to work in winter, though, when i usually wear a thick moisturiser.

Try Dr Hauschka Rose cream, I find it amazing. all natural, no mineral oils etc. and quite rich. I've been using it for about a year now and I'm really happy with the results.

^ Lara L: I follow this and I think it works fine during winter too. Your face gets quite accustomed to it.
Although very occasionally I have felt the need to moisturize a little before going to bed.. Then instead of applying a rich moisturizing cream, I have taken a tiny tiny bit of sweet almond oil, rubbed it in my hands, and patted it on my face.
(at least that's cheaper than using the Hauschka ampules kit, although that is what they recommend if your skin needs extra moisture during the night - you know which one I mean?)

I changed my moisturizers now and then. I have dry and moderately sensitive ( my skin peels and feel very taut if i use unsuitable products )
Say for the first week of the month in late spring to early fall I use Clarins moisturizers. I'm in my early twenties and still unable to find the right eye cream that doesn't make my eyes puffy and making its pores break out and have the most hideous "lizard-skin" effect due to dead skin forming on my eye areas - which could not be scrubbed off - cuz I'm not planning to go blind if scrub beads/enzyme peels got into my eyes.

Ok here goes,

Day Facial Cream: Clarins moisture quenching hydra care cream + Clarins UV plus day screen

Night Facial Cream: Clarins skin beauty repair concentrate + Clarins gentle night cream/moisture quenching hydra care cream

Night Body Cream: Body Shop Shea/Cocoa Butter

At second week,

Day Facial Cream: Avene thermal spray water + Avene SPF 15 Riche

Night Facial Cream: Avene thermal spray water + Avene creme nutritive compensateur/ Avene hydrating masque

Body cream: L'Occitane body cream

Week 3:

Day Facial Cream: Neutrogena lotions with SPF 15 / Neutrogena hydrating mask ( weekend )

Night Facial Cream: Dermalogica super rich repair

Body Cream: Back to body shop shea/cocoa butter

Week 4:

Day facial cream: Elizabeth Arden 8 hour cream with SPF

Night facial cream: Elizabeth Arden 24-hour cream

Body cream: L'Occitane


I'm such a chemistry in a jar/bottle/tube junkie~
I wont spend on La Mer now, but when I'm older, maybe...

In winter I'd usually skip the neutrogena and avene and use mostly dermalogica or clarins and ate loads of fruits, vegies and chicken soup - not forgetting to drink plenty of water...
