    PradaP, how do you like the Chanel Maximum Radiance Cream? Does it really make the skin noticeable more radiant? how's the texture? and does it moisturize well for dry skin?

    I wanna try some cream that would make my skin look radiant with a glow, thinking about this Chanel one or Dior Energy Move. Have you tried the Dior one?

    ***Neutrogena's Dandruff Shampoo

    I use it as a face wash because the coal tar in it kills the bacteria on my face and I have not had one breakout since I began using it once a day (in the morning, while I shower). Plus, it you have dermatitis (which many mistake for acne) on your face it will def. get rid of it. Dermatitis is often mistaken for acne or breakouts because they look really similar.

    At night I use:

    ***Basis Soap
    ***Zia's Herbal Toner & Oil-Free Moisterizer

    Right now I'm using:

    AHAVA cleanser
    Clinique 7 day scrub
    Vichy Thermal S.UV moisturizer for the day

    I really like the AHAVA stuff but my aunt bought it for me from the states and I don't know where I can buy it in Canada. :(

    it's not bad, but you will probably need a separate moisturizer underneath (this is what they recommend) as this isnt all that moisturizing (I wear hydraserum underneath this myself)

    it's a very nice gel-cream texture and as far as the radiant effect goes, its nothing instant but over time it does help

    i havent tried the Dior one so I am afraid I cant compare

    hth! :flower:

    I think I am the only self-proclaimed Beauty Product Junkie who loves Clinique skin care products. While I agree that their makeup is just...ehhhh :ermm: , my skin has always responded well to their skin care. I use the Rinse-Off Foaming cleanser first, followed by the 3-step system number II. (In the morning I add the Exfoliating Scrub (not the 7-day, which is gentler.) Then I use Total Turnaround Cream as an anti-aging on my whole face, and Anti-Gravity Firming Eye Lift on my eyes (under and on lids). After that I use the Clean & Clear spot treatment (the clear one, with the salicylic acid--not the opaque, which has benzoyl peroxide). Once a week I do a mask--usually be Astara's Blue Flame but I always keep a Queen Helene Mint Julep around in case I've run out.

    I think the routine works pretty well, at least for me! I have acne-prone skin, this has kept it clear for a while now. B)
