Skincare products you recommend
Hi everyone,

Most threads here are about how you take care of your skin and what you use daily, but I'm wondering if there's any products that really made a diffrence for you ?

In this jungle with Clinique, Estee Lauder and other brands, I'm very confused of what to buy ?

Do I buy a face wash,exfoliater and a daycream ? ( anything I left out ? )

( I've got normal type skin, nothing too dry or oily and neither is my skin hypersensitive )

Would be very thankful for any reply.

...The girl out on the quest for that perfect skin

things you need is a good face wash, moisturiser with SPF for day even a sunblock, facial scrubs, eye cream, a deep cleanse mask and a moisturising mask.
i have normal/ combo skin depending on the days of the month...and products that really made a difference for me are:
mario badescu enzyme cleansing gel and Alpha-Grapefruit cleasning lotion (which is a toner)
Darphin Desincrustant Lotion which kills the pimples overnight!!
olay total effect with SPF 15
i'm still finding a perfect eyecream.....
i mean great products dont have to be expensive

If you want the really basics, I would go for a good face wash, facial scrub, deep cleanse mask, toner and moisturiser. Although I don't use toner myself.

I've had many many dermatologists lecture us, and they all say the same thing, if you need to spend the money, dont go for any expensive cleansers! Almost all cleansers do the same thing, just use one that is mild.
I love aveeno daily scrub.
Moisturizers are where you should spend big bucks on...
i started using creme de la mer ($110/1 ounce) 2 months ago and my chapped face (i was peeling like mad all over!) is now smoother than smooth.
I have tried every face moisturizer out there it seems, cheap, expensive...my fave is la mer for the winter and lancomes hydration creme for the summer.
Combine with a warm mist humidifier at night and your skin should look better and fresher in the winter.

I believe everyone's skin regimen should include:
-a facial cleanser
-a toner
-a moisturizer
-a mask every week
-exfoliation (scrub) every week, but not on the same day as the mask

I personally love Decleor and highly recommend it. Another good brand I like is Dermalogica.

Hi Boink, you are not vain for wanting to look your best. I actually admire
you for making that effort, if there was more guys like you we would get
rid of so many " slobs " :p

my tried and tested products!... cheap but very effective!
pond's deep cleansing cream- to remove dirt/makeup
oatmeal mask-good for oily skin
lemon toner-anti-bacterial
pre-make up mask (got this from china. prevents pimples even if i sweat or get exposed to dust.)

i've tried using expensive products like SHU UEMURA, CLINIQUE, LANCOME, SHISEIDO but none worked that long...it was only good for 6 months or less!

For my skin I always use a cleanser, toner and moisturiser.

A mask and scrub everyweek - seems to work so I'm happy

As for brands? Everyone's skin is different - I'd say the best idea is to experiment and use their free testers that they give you and see what works best for your skin.
