    Just a thread to state which skin type you have and ask for tips and tricks. I've noticed that many ppl ask for help but they never say what kind of skin type they have which makes it hard to give advice. :flower:

    I have dry skin, and sometimes I get dry spots like on my cheeks and my forhead and I use Mayday Mayday Rescue Balm by Ren when it gets really bad.

    My skin used to be combination (dry forehead and cheeks, blackheads and oiliness on nose) but now I think it's pretty much normal. The blackheads are very small now, and I don't have dry or oily spots any longer...I think the combination of glycolic acid and Estee Lauder's Advanced Night Repair has worked wonders. I got a small tester of ANR, and I definitely want 50 ml of that for xmas

    I think i have normal skin with a slightly oil T-zone....is that combo skin? I have no idea!

    I get a few spots around my chin area during that time of the month and the only thing that stops that is Mario B's buffering lotion.

    I use all Trilogy products, keeps my skin happy. It can get very angry lol

    I think it's normal to have oily skin around the nose area...For me perfect skin is normal skin :innocent: like no dry spots and no oily parts. I just bought the Kiehl's Midnight Recovery Concentrate, I've only used it twice so not sure about it yet, but my skin looks and feels a lot better, it was so dry that the Bobbi Brown ppl couldn't get over it :rofl: I think they told me like 5 times how dry my skin was..

    My skin seems to vary. Sometimes it is oily all over with a lot more oil in the T-zone, then other times it is just like combination skin: oily in the T-zone and dry elsewhere.

    For oily skinned Brits, I found OC8 moisturiser to be great. Pity you can't buy it in Boots any more though. :(

    My skin is normal even though sometimes it gets a little oily especially in the summer. :(

    I have combination skin. Luckily my cheeks and eyes area aren't very dry, but my forehead and my nose are very oily. It's quite annoying, but after years of searching I finally found the right products for my oily T-zone (I just love that word, haha) and I don't use anything on the rest of my face, other than cleansing gel.
