Skin Care Product You Swear By

I am 47, have combination skin, quite sensitive. I have used Dr. Hauschka and Dermalogica products ... still trying to find a good fit. I had good results with a vitamin K product after a facial but it was way too expensive ($100). I'd love to hear some skin care recommendations.

i have very sensitive skin too and i've found cetaphil doesn't irritate much - also, aveeno products are usually good for sensitive skin - especially their moisturizers.

Clarins and Avene.

I swear by Dr. Hauschka, but it takes a while for your skin to adjust...the results are acumulative, not overnight. Kind of like weight loss. Have you tried meeting w/ one of their dermatologists/esthaticians? That may help.

While not an actual product, I swear by Dr. Leslie Baumann's book (Skin Type Solution) because I also have tricky skin (combo, sensitive, acne, etc.) & this book helped me find products that will truly help. You take a thorough quiz to id your type, then she provides recommendations based on your type (different price ranges are given too--I use the less expensive regimen & it works great). The book was a little pricey, but well worth it. Hope this helps! :-)

One time, I found one of those little stands at the mall that sold this salty oily stuff. Now, I'm not a hair and makeup kind of person (AT ALL!) but this stuff I loved. I'm not sure what it was, but you took a tablespoon of this dead sea salt and oil mixture and rubbed it all over your hands for like a minute. Rinsed it off, then pat dry. It made my hands feel so soft.

Not sure if you're looking for cleansers or moisturizers or what, but I love Purpose moisturizer. I also had terribly dry skin in the winter and nothing would help, but when I started using Purpose every day after I wash my face, the dryness went away. Never tried any of their cleansers though....

I also have combo skin + acne and my dermatologist kept putting me on all sorts of stuff that didn't work for me. Proactiv seems to work without overdrying my skin. I only use the cleanser and the after-cleansing cream though (I forget what it's called but you leave it on). I use either Purpose or Olay moisturizer. Proactiv isn't cheap but you don't need a lot of it.

I use DHC products that I just absolutely love. You can't find it in stores, its and Japanese company but you can order them on line. I also love the Philosophy line. Since using these for the last 5 years my skin has never felt or looked so fresh and clean.

A lady that gave me a facial told me that the Neutrogena 2-in-1 face mask/cleanser (the one with benzoyle peroxide sp?) + Stridex Wipes works the exact same as ProActiv for way less money. I've been using this for a couple of months and it works great. I have VERY sensitive skin and it doesn't irritate it at all, oddly enough. :)

I know it works for some people, but I had a horrible experience with it. My skin actually got worse. On top of that, their customer service was rude, patronizing, and not at all helpful. They are also tricky about the refund, so if you try it, make sure you get ALL the information.

euricin (sp?) In every drugstore, a few dollars. Blows the $90 dollar bottles of "youth serum" out of the water.

Proactiv gave me such a bad reaction I had to return it, but not before I looked awful for a week. I had the worst rash I've ever seen. Beware, because I had pimples and thought it would help me but it turned my neck raw. Terrible experience.

Neutrogena Extra Gentle Cleanser
Nivea SPF cream
Nivea eye cream

I've tried the expensive stuff from Estee Lauder and these seem to work just as well, some even better than the expensive stuff. And I'm 35.
