    Your favorite moisturizer?: Gel de la Mer. (I don’t own this b.c its so expensive, but the last time I bought makeup at Saks the sales lady gave me a big sample. It is unbelievably amazing. Doesn’t feel greasy, moisturizes with absolutely no breakouts! In fact I honestly think it was helping control my acne. And then I ran out… )

    Your favorite moisturizer?: hmm… tough one here. I think it’s nearly a tie between Cle de Peau Beaute La Creme (despite its uber ridiculous price tag) and Creme de La Mer. I’m going through my third jar of La Mer’s, and while I love how it moisturizes my skin and all I like how La Creme feels so nice and light. Since I have very dry skin with eczema I’ve tried out so many high-end cremes for dry skin and so far I’m most satisfied with those two.

    Favorite Moisturizer: Right now, i’m using Hope in a Bottle by Philosophy. This one is for congested pores. A good drugstore one I am liking lately as it works well on my skin is Clean & Clear SOFT day lotion

    Skincare Step I can’t miss?: Cleansing & moisturizing. Without those two, my skin would be disastrous

    Worst skincare product I’ve used?: Kiehl’s Centella Skin-Calming Cleanser. This just did not clean my face. It left a horrible residue on my skin & when i took toner to my face after to see if it was clean, the cotton ball came out with makeup on it which meant – dirty! Ugh! I did not like it and usually i like Kiehl’s products but this was a big no-no!

  7. Your favorite moisturizer?: I don’t use moisturizer; My dermatologist advises against it for my skin type – it clogs my pores and causes more oiliness and breakouts. I need to keep my skin a bit on the drier side in order to keep breakouts away.

      Wow! I never knew this. I use blotting sheets a lot too cause I have very oily skin. I never thought there were ingredients in them. I thought it was just a kind of paper. Interesting….learned something new today.

      • I never suspected it, either! I read about it on makeupalley and it totally makes sense now – the more I used them, the oiler I got and the harder my breakouts were to control.

        Now I just use tissues… and it sounds gross, but those toilet seat covers (clean ones :) )work *wonders* for removing oil!

    • K

      Have you tried Body Shop’s Tea Tree Oil Facial Blotting Tissue?
      They seem to work well for me and my face always gets oily during the day. However they clearly have ‘oil’ in them too lol. Not sure if it is the same thing….but you could try them out =)

  14. carriespooner

    Fav moisturizer: Eqyptian Magic (for evening). I put this on and sleep in it. It’s propolis, royal jelly all the bee products. I LOVE it more than anything. Not good for under makeup though.. it’s not for that.

    Skincare step can’t miss: spf for day. Retin-A for night.

    Extra product I love is Vitamin C serum. I mix my own. Google it! It’s cheap.

    Worst skin care product ever: OMG.. Serious Skin Care with Jennifer Flavin. I bought a kit on HSN and it smelled like petroleum. I wanted to love it because all the products had phyto nutrients but they were all horrible products.

  15. cmferrets

    clinique dramatically different mousurizer and moisture surge.
    i cant miss washing my face off and applying a mousturize, if i dont my face feels paper dry.

  23. Sweet_Plum

    Favorite Moisturizer: Olay Complete All Day Moisture Cream SPF 15, Normal Skin. Great product, and even better price! Only $8.50
    Skincare step you can’t miss: Putting on some SPF. Terrified of getting skin cancer since it seems to run in the family.
    Worst skincare product used: Neutrogena Clear Pore Cleanser/Mask. Terrible product! Basically sucked up all the moisture in my skin, but left all the oil causing me to break out all over! STAY AWAY!

  24. sprut

    1. I don’t have one but at the moment I like clinique’s moisture surge.
    2. removing makeup/cleansing
    3. alba cleanser…for some reason it makes my lips and mouth numb. I must be allergic to something in it.

  27. ice

    Favorite moisturizer: I am liking Shiseido Gel-creme Moisturiser. It does the job well (i’m using Retin A cream) so I really need a good moisturiser. It feels gorgeous when applied but I’m a little squemish when removing it from the jar coz of it’s consistency. I just wish it’s available in a pump container rather than in a jar.

  29. hi

    Your favorite moisturizer? Garnier Nutritionisste Skin Renew Daily Regenerating Moisture Cream. This stuff felt like rich liquid velvet in my hand yet didn’t clog pores. It moisturized, but it wasn’t greasy at all. It filled in fine lines, but without buildup or any stinging. It left my skin SO, SO soft, and smells great!! Plus, it’s relatively a cheapie.
    Skincare step you can’t miss? Exfoliating. If I don’t slough my pores, sooner or later I’ll have giant, dirty bumps on my skin no matter how many times I cleanse.
    Worst skincare product you’ve used? Aveeno Daily Moisturizer, in the white-tan bottle/muted green cap. Yeah, it moisturized well enough, but the SPF did me no good, it left my skin a bit sensitive, it smelled weird and was a bit greasy. Plus the packaging is AWFUL – the pump broke and now I have to scoop the moisturizer out with my fingers!

  31. Angie

    Moisturizer: I use Envision Beauty’s The Solution. I have tried every moisturizer in the book, from La Mer to drugstore, and this is the ONLY moisturizer that actually helps my dry skin! And the funny thing is, it is SO lightweight. I didn’t think it would work. It is an all-in-one, so I don’t have to use eye cream or serum anymore. Definitely takes all of those time consuming steps out of the picture. Plus, it’s all natural, and full of amazing things. I’m so glad I’ve finally found my HG moisturizer.

    Skincare step: Exfoliating. Dry skin + flakes = hot mess

    Worst Skincare Product: Too many to count.

  32. It changes so often but:
    Fav moisturizer: Lancome High Resolution 3x
    Never forget to: Cleanse & Moisturize – they come hand in hand
    Worse skincare product: Avon Anew Moisturizers-each one peeled off when I did my foundation or peeled off like dead skin on my pillow at night. I returned them for sure. $7.99 thought I was getting a good deal. I think not:)

  33. Allison

    Fav moisturizer: Clinique superdefense
    Never skip skin care: Retin A/ Duac acne meds
    Worst skincare product: primer from cover fx and s.box (broke me out)

    Your favorite moisturizer? Paula’s Choice hydrating creme, I only have to use a little bit of this and I use it mostly where I tend to have dryer skin because this is super moisturizing! I’ve tried using other moisturizers when I run out but I cant live without it.

    Skincare step you cant miss? Moisturizer

    Worst skincare product you’ve used? Hmmm, I am drawing a blank but I would say any drugstore moisturizer I’ve tried. I wish I could find one for times when I am waiting for my Paula’s Choice to arrive.

    Favourite Moisturizer .. Just Nivea cream, everything else makes my face greasy, plus its really cheap for using every day. I put it on my hands all the time at work too!
    Best Skincare Step .. Taking make up off before bed, exfoliating and blackhead cleanser once a week. Then use Nivea as a face mask, leave it on for 5-10 minutes.
    Worst Skincare Products .. Haven’t tried anything too bad, worst thing was a foundation I bought House of Colour, just made my skin so oily and spotty!!!
