    Favorite facial mist? Don’t use one
    Favorite toner? I have Murad, the acne one, but I don’t use it regularly
    Favorite skincare treatment? LOVE Murad’s Exfoliating Acne Treatment Gel.  Not only does it help keep breakouts at bay, it gently exfoliates leaving my skin looking fresh, never dull-even in winter.

  2. Your skin tone/coloring: Olive fair
     
    Favorite facial mist: MAC FIX+
    Favorite toner: Embryolisse Lotion Micellaire and Silk Naturals 2% BHA Toner
    Favorite skincare treatment: Sulfur Mask doesn’t matter which brand they’re all great but the higher the percentage the better. Currently using up my Proactiv Refining Mask then using the Murad Clarifying Mask next. For daytime treatment Nutragena Rapid Clear 2-in-1 Fight & Fade Gel. Salicylic Acid (Aspirin) Mask.

      I love the sulfur masks too. Murad’s is great and they also make a sulfur spot treatment.

    Your skin tone/coloring: pink, reddish
    Favorite facial mist? MyChelle Fruit Enzyme Mist
    Favorite toner? Dr. Denese Pore Refining Toner (QVC)
    Favorite skincare treatment? Anti aging facial

       @mpca66 Be sure to look at Dr. Denese’s OWN web site she has now. For yrs her contract with QVC excluded her from selling anywhere else, even in her then open NY medical practice! She now has all her current products on her own web site. Many prices are less than QVC. I was astounded to see that a product I love of hers (76% peptide solution) is $150 on QVC and $88 on Dr. D’s own web site! QVC does not sell all Dr. D’s products now and many are out of stock often. Get on the Dr. D web mailing list. They will keep you apprised of sales. At first when that site launched it had a form of easy pay for everything. I don’t see that now and am going to write to see if it is still going on. I have turned to ordering off the Dr D web site because shipping is cheaper as well as wider range of my fav products from her line available.

    Your skin tone/coloring:
    In Guerlain 12 Rose Claire.. In MAC – NW20/NC25. I’m yellow, but prefer using a more pink foundation.
     
    Favorite facial mist?
    UD All Nighter is my favorite, but I believe that is a finishing spray, not a ‘refresher/mist’. I use Fix+ only for wet e/s application and to ‘melt’ powder.

    Chanel Lotion Pureté
     
    Favorite skincare treatment?
    Once every two weeks: Ole Henriksen Micro/Mini Peel System

  12. Avatar of Kafka Kafka

    Skin Tone/Coloring: Pale olive with yellow undertones (MUFE 127) to medium tan (MUFE 155) in summer.
    Fav. Facial Mist: I don’t use any, though I’m thinking of trying the Ole Henriksen African Red Tea one.
    Favorite Toner: Used to be Nivea’s Alcohol-Free toner with Aloe and Chamomile but I can’t find it *anywhere* anymore!  :(
    Favorite Skincare Treatment: I’m assuming the question deals only with weekly treatment sorts of things and not general daily skincare. If so, then it’s a tie between  Dr. Brandt’s Microdermabrasion (fav. dermabrasion of all time, and I’ve tried a lot of them!) & Ren’s Glycolactic Radiance Renewal Mask.

      @Kafka Have you tried Amazon? Sometimes companies still make products, but because they have a “smaller” market, they’ll let online companies handle the sales, as it’s more cost effective.

      • Avatar of Kafka Kafka

         @xamyx  @Kafka You’re so sweet, xamyx. :) I should have specified that I can’t find it anywhere for it’s regular price, as opposed to prices that make the cheap skate side of me wake up and flay around like an angry zombie whose been badly poked. LOL! ;)  Amazon has a $4-$5 product going for over $20 with shipping which… no. It’s a fantastic product, but just no. I hate feeling as if someone is trying to cheat me or take advantage of me, ya know? Plus, if I’m going to shell out over $20 on a mere toner, it would be for NARS. lol   (Totally OT, speaking of our beloved NARS, I thought of you yesterday with your wish for a nail varnish like NARS’ Eurydice or Melusine. Have you checked out  the options at Nails, Inc. on Sephora? There are two which might be close. “Victoria” in particular. I think it could work. It’s definitely on my list, along with “Westminster.”)

    Favorite facial mist: Amore Pacific Moisture Bound Skin Energy Mist. (This stuff is the best – I used MAC Fix + forever, and I will never go back. Everyone needs to try it.)
     
    Favorite toner: Amore Pacific Alcohol-Free Treatment Toner.
     
    Favorite skincare treatment: I wouldn’t consider this a “treatment”, but I love the new REN cleansing balm to remove my makeup. It has rose, chamomile, violet, and clove – smells phenomenal, all skin types can use it, doesn’t clog pores because it’s all natural, and has the most incredible, airy texture. At night, I use it to remove my makeup – some Amore Pacific toner, followed by REN’s Frankincense Night Cream, and your skin will NEVER feel better. I recommend it to everyone! =]
