    I'm really simple actually-I don't need a ton for my face because I used to have acne problems, but now my face has cleared up and it's just about getting some acne spots gone.

    All my products below are Patricia Wexler MD-we sell it at our store and I never thought I'd be one to fork over so much for facecare, but this is amazing.

    AM and PM-Universal Daily Cleanser, MMPi Regenerating Serum, and a lip plumper of my choice (Petal is my favourite colour).
    AM Moisturizer-Oil-Free Hydrator SPF 30
    PM Moisturizer-Universal PM moisturizer, but I'm thinking of switching to the Intensive Night cream when I finish this tube.

    And not a Wexler thing, but I swear by a Vitamin C serum, it helped me clear my face up before my senior year.

    Make up remover: Pond's cold cream than follow up with the Johnson & Johnson baby wipes. Classic is always the best and baby wipes are a much cheaper than the wipes that are available at the cosmetic counter

    Cleanser: Cetaphil to balance up the pH and also leave your skin soft

    Toner: Aesop Anti Oxidant facial toner

    Eye Cream: Aesop Parsley Seed Anti Oxcidant

    Moisturizer: Efficort by Galderma. Doesn't smell as good as the other moisturizer that i used before but this cream absorb really quick into your skin

    Blemishes: L'occitane Lavender vinegar

    Facial masque: Aesop Primrose mask & Chamomile concentrate anti blemish masque

    My products and a question

    NUFOLIA Natural Cleansing Bar
    Lemon and witch hazel toner (forgot the brand)
    ARCONA Desert Mist and
    LA MER Lotion or
    HAUSCHKA Normalizing Day Oil

    ASTARA mask (forgot wich one, but it has clay and papaya enzymes) :smile:


    My question is: my skin has been VERY dry lately due to the change in weather and just living in a dry area. I'm going to do a search, but can anyone recommend a moisturizer for acne prone, but dry skin?:flower:

    Try a moisturiser from Avene or La Roche-Posay. Generally look for products with the indication ''non commedogene''.

    Has anyone here used any Lush products. They are an all natural skin care line with soaps and oils. I actually just a got a job there, cause I needed something part time. Any feedback would be great.

    Yeah, I change a lot too. It's hard to find what suits me, especially with my unpredictable skin. Right now im using:

    Clinique Take the day off balm (the only thing Clinique that I dare to put on my face)

    Trish McEvoy pore-refining gel - SO SO SO GOOD! HIGHLY RECOMMEND IT if you've got enlraged pores & pimples. You don't need foundation after you use it.

    Vichy SPF cream
    Dior eye cream (forgot the name)
    L'occitane night cream
    Kiehl's lip balm
    Andy Warhol Flowers Body Cream

    theleatherette, just wanted to say that I use Lush and like some of their products but please don't be confused. Lush is not 'all natural', they use chemicals in many of their products that are the same chemicals in ones from the drugstore. Their shtick is that they are 'fresh' products; ie they don't sit on store shelves for months, and they have 'expiration' dates because they don't use a lot of preservatives. There is a BIG difference between all natural/organic/no chemicals lines and ones that just claim they are 'fresh' which is a pretty ambiguous term.

    So far I think I've settled on a good regime for my skin.

    AM
    Clearasil Peppermint Cleanser Wash
    Lush Herbalism*
    Vichy Thermal Water Spray
    Neutrogena Dry Touch Spf 55 Sunscreen
    Vichy Nutrilogie S2*

    PM
    Vichy Purete Thermale Makeup Remover
    Clearasil Peppermint Cleansing Wash
    Herbalism*
    Vichy Thermal Water
    MaMa Lotion/Avene Ystheal Cream**

    *Depends on if my skin is really flaky from MaMa
    **On alternate nights

    So far I had redness/discoloration around nostrils, mouth and some blotchy freckles. The redness has all but disappeared, the discoloration and freckles are lightening. And no new acne breakouts :smile:

    Cleanser - QV wash
    Moisturizer - Neutrogena oil-free moisture for sensitive skin
    Eye cream - Clinique all about eyes rich

    & at night, in addition to the above, I use Benzac AC 5% (benzoyl peroxide gel) on old acne scars

    I have been using these products for more than a year now (recommended by my derm), and my face has never been this clear. I am kinda bored now though, I want to try something new but am kinda hesitant.

    Oh, in addition to that I use St. Ives apricot scrub once a week.

    Hey how's your skin 4 months later? ^_^


    i'm obsessed currently with la prairie again and it's so damn expensive but i need it. I also want the Caudalie Beauty Elixir although the ingredients said that alcohol was second and that's a bit worrysome because i have sensitive skin, but i want it.

    currently i've actually been addicted to this aveda outer peace cleanser which is their acne line which i dont have at all but it has a ton of anti-inflammatory ingredients like oat amino acids and its a quick cleanser which for me is good because i'm so OCD and spend an hour doing my face at times.
    I also cleanse with La Prairie's Foam Cleanser still before shaving if I really have more than two days growth because the hair grows so fast. :angry:
    I like La Prairie's Cellular Cleansing Emulsion and I use Biologique Recherche's Lait U but its for normal to oily and since its winter I need a dry skin cleanser and foaming cleansers like the Aveda and La Prairie Foam can tend to be drying, so I like using La Prairie's Emulsion at least once a day if I am also using a foam in the same day. Which you shouldnt cleanse twice a day (only at night) but if I have to shave in morning then I pre-cleanse.
    For toners I want like I mentioned Beauty Elixir (do they sell this at Nordstrom?) and I use Clarins Extra-Comfort Toning Lotion but am switching back to La Prairie's Cellular Softening and Balancing Lotion because its so beautiful and hydrating. It's accompanied with their Microdermabrasion Cream which I also use for exfoliating, and so it softens any irritation you might receive (I dont receive any) but I need glycolic acid for real instant and lasting results, so I use their Glycolic Acid Retexturizer as a serum and then follow it with IS Clinical Pro-Heal Serum and either La Prairie's Cellular Anti-Redness Nurturing Cream or Biologique Recherche's Creme Verte Espoir or ReVive Moisturizing Renewal Cream (This has glycolic in it)
    i want to try MD Skincare Hydra-Pure Intense Cream...has anyone? It claims to help penetrate other active ingredients and that heavy metals such as iron, copper, magnesium, lead and zinc are sequestered and pulled off the surface of the skin, reducing irritation and dryness.
    I need new masks too.
