I have combination skin, but have been using Clarins cleanser and toner for sensitive skin for a while after my skin reacted badly to another make of toner - now that this has healed up, I really need to go back to using stuff for combination skin.
Fancying a change, I spent ages going round various Chanel counters today, and each time got advised a different cleanse, tone and moisture routine!!
Im so confused, and pretty angry as well as their skin care is not cheap, and I can't afford to waste money on something that might not be right for me.
Sorry to rant, just wondered if anyone had any advice or similar experiences?
I usually advise myself trough magazines and books!
I really think that most of the times SA´s tell you what they "think" and it´s not really their knowledge they are sharing, as they are not beauticians or dermatologists.
Analise your skin carefully and trough a month and read about the skin types, then, it´s a matter of trial and error!
I stopped using oily skin products too late i guess. Until you are on your mid twenties, people are allways saying we have oily/combination skin, wich is really a lie.
And i found i got better skin using normal/dry skin products than when i was using products for combination skin.
Of course i get oilier on the T-zone, but everybody does unless you have babies skin.
And that is easily solutioned using some loose powder and some mattifying sheets, no need to use a moisturizer for this.
But that is just me and my skin.
Yesterday is history. Tomorrow is a mystery. Today is a gift. That's why it is called the present.
I remember a bad experience though, I went to Lancome for a whole new skincare range. I spent £60 only to find it was terrible. Everything was just mixed up - I had a toner for oily skin and moisturiser for very dry skin. I hadn't noticed this because I just took what she said to be right.
Though the best person to give me advice was my mum... I guess because they went through it all when they were younger too
Someday you will find me

a few weeks ago on holiday in Biarittz I just started to eat really healthily because it was difficult to snack on junk food as I was at the beach all day. literally within just 10days my skin went from being really rough and blotchy with loads of under skin spots to COMPLETELY clear... Then when I got home I started eating unhealthily again and my skin went back to how it was before, so now I'm sticking to just eating fruit, vegetables, fish and chicken and I can really notice the difference again. Also drink at least 2litres of water a day.
