    ^^I want to know that, too. I got sample of Aubrey Blue Green Algae Moisturizer (SPF 15) for combination/oily skin and it's pretty good-it's organic and non-comedogenic. I think I'll buy it, but before that I want to hear some other options.:wink:

    Sorry SHSH that was rude of me. If it's working for you, that's great. I just would switch it up sooner or later because your skin might get to used to it. Also, I'm just not partial to drugstore moisturizers, but to each their own...

    I have dry skin that breaks out occasionally. I'm trying to find a good night cream.
    Has anyone used shea butter on their face and did you break out?
    TIA

    I love this product as well! I use Quince as well, and the regular Rose cream in winter. :heart:

    does anyone know a good face creme, something i could get @ sephora maybe, that is good for moisturizing dry skin but is not greasy?
    (and maybe not a million bucks!)

    ^ skip the night creams. i have been following that regimine and using dr. hauschka's line for a month's time now and my skin has never felt or looked this darned healthy. i have good skin to begin with, but now? it's amazing!

    i forgot to mention, if you absolutely feel as if you need to put something on your face at night, use the dr. hauschka toner. i use the clarifying toner at night because i have combination skin and big pores, but if you have dry skin, use the regular facial toner. :flower:

    i have! i am addicted to their perfumes, and so i tried their facial care line because i was curious and quite honestly, nothing was effective. i tried it for well over five months and saw no difference. it was almost as if i wasn't using anything. their purity cleanser never really made my skin feel clean. it's really watery and i feel that it's over priced for something that felt on my skin as if i had bought it at cvs or something! and some of their stuff even made me begin to look as if i was about to break out, which was horrible because i am not acne prone nor have i ever had an acne problem. (i am paranoid about ever having pimples, though, so i will admit that i use acne-preventing products because i think i will die of embarrassment the day that i ever have to deal with acne or pimples or anything like that.)

    the only philosophy product that i recommend, aside from their perfumes and lotions which are all delish, is their hope and a prayer topical vitamin c powder. i used it for a while and it really worked well. i had a tiny scar on my chin that has always bothered me and by mixing the powder with any moisturizer, it literally made the tiny scar disappear. :flower:

    oh, yeah, their shampoos and body washes are really good, too! but that's about it. :( trust me, there is nothing from the philosophy line that i haven't used and half of it all in stored in a bin in my bathroom. so if anyone wants it, i swear, let me know! i don't want it, that's for sure!

    Hmm I just know I dont want dry premature aging skin and so when my skin is it's most active, at night, I apply products that are the most penetrating and active. I cant skip moisturizer for my skin. And your skin is always producing more sebum unless you're a very very dry skin type.

    Oh and I hate Philosophy! :lol:
