How do you like micelle cleansers? I recently bought Yves Rocher (even though I had some prejudices against this brand) Micellar Cleansing Water and I really really like it. It's so cheap and it has good ingredients too.

^ I have mixed feelings towards micellar cleansers. I either manage to get one that burns my skin (Biotherm, Uriage) or on a rare occasion I do find a great one. Others are really gentle to skin, but cleansing power is non-existent (La Prairie).

My current one is great, no scent, no color, no soap, no alcohol, no sulfates... Gets everything off in one go, doesn't irritate skin the slightest and no grease is left afterwards either (I say this because some of these waters tend to leave a sticky film on skin). Probably no good for dry skins, but for me it's sufficient. And yea, it allows me to get clean skin without traditional cleansers or tap water; it's horrid here, despite my filtering efforts.

^I think the average garden variety toner is just bottled, scented water. I've used the Sisley Floral toner, the Kiehl's Calendula toner and a host of others, but I've found that eliminating this step from my skincare routine didn't make any difference at all. I'd rather use a facial mist like Jurlique's Rosewater Balancing Mist or just plain mineral water (Evian) which I can keep spritzing every now and again. (I know many dig the Caudalie Beauty Elixir, but the alcohol in it makes my eyes burn whenever I use it, so I'm not too sold on it.)


Specialised toners which aren't so much toners than exfoliators - like Biologique Recherche's Lotion Alpha Kérato-Régulatrice or Lotion P50 or Alpha H's Liquid Gold - on the other hand which function more as a treatment have been amazing.

I've tried cod liver oil, it's supposed to be especially beneficial kind of fish oil, but as far as skin's appearance goes, I never noticed anything. Neither good, nor bad. And I took a lot of it (liquid form), over extended periods of time and from a couple different brands. No real result.
At the moment I'm taking salmon oil, but doesn't seem to be working either.
I envy people who take some kind of fish oil and rave about how their skin gets glow-y, eyes get bright and joint problems go away. I can only hope some day I'll find some omega-3 oil that I can rave about as well.
Btw, plant oils with healthy fatty acids never worked for me either, tried them all, flax, hemp, borage, wheat germ, primrose and so on. Waste of time.

Has anyone tried one of the Biotherm's Biosensitive moisturizers? I have really sensitive, dry skin and I've tried so many moisturizers, but none of them was good enough.

Thanks for sharing your experience with it .

I've tried flax seed oil as well and had a horrible allergic reaction to it so I now stay away from the plant oils.

I did end up buying a bottle of cod liver oil so we'll see how it goes. I'm not expecting a miracle but I would like to experience some of the benefits that others rave about when taking clo.

I am looking to know if anyone has any good recommendations for an exfoliater geared towards VERYYY sensitive skin. I have eczema on my face so I have to exfoliate like every single day and then moisturize...and so far all I'm using are my fingers but I want an actual product.
Any suggestions?

LIZ EARLE - CLEANSE AND POLISH

i discovered this recently, after hearing the hype about it and i love love LOOOOVE it.

you massage the cleanser onto dry skin. then you soak the muslin cloth in warm water and gently polish off the cleanser in circular motions.

i would say this would be ideal for you, as you can control the amount of exfoliation you get i.e. how 'hard' - can't think of a better word - you use the muslin cloth against your skin.

Depending on your budget, a cheaper version (but just as effective) is by Boots No. 7 ' Beautiful Skin, Hot Cloth Cleanser'

^ I'm going to second the Liz Earle cleanser. I always come back to it, especially in winter.

To cleanse or remove makeup with the Liz Earle you would massage the product into your skin and then remove with the wet muslin cloth. You can use the Liz Earle to both remove your makeup or just to cleanse (if you wanted to use it just for exfoliating sometime you could just wet the muslin cloth and polish your skin without using the cleanser).

I love the Gentle Cream Exfoliant. It is easy to remove and doesn't irritate my skin (although I don't have very sensitive skin). I use it at night and the next morning my skin looks less red, more even-toned and very glowy. However it doesn't smell the best!

a couple posts above i explain how its used. but as Ganybelle says, you just gently polish off the cleanser with the muslin cloth and rinse with a final splash of cold water

I wouldn't particularly call it an exfoliator, as it is a cream cleanser, i think 'polish' is a more appropriate word. so, very good for sensitive skin

I'm wondering if anyone else experiences this problem: My skin is perfect everywhere but on my chin. I break out on my chin all the time. There is never a day where I don't have a pimple or a blackhead on there. It drives me insane!

I'm a vegetarian, I take vitamins and supplements, don't eat refined sugar, exercise, stay out of the sun, and drink tons of water. I feel like I can't solve this problem!

Any ideas?
