43 thoughts on “Survey Says… October 28th, 2009

  1. Favourite daily moisturizer – Mark For Goodness Face SPF 50 or Philosophy Hope in a Jar (I discovered Mark a few months ago and it works fabulously, and it’s cheaper than Philosophy so I’ve been going with Mark right now!)

    Favourite daily cleanser – Mario Badescu Enzyme Cleansing Gel
    Leaves my skin feeling clean and refreshed without feeling harsh or dry; plus it’s really good value! I’ve had mine for more than a year now, and I still have quite a lot left.

    Favourite daily toner – Kiehl’s Cucumber Herbal Alcohol Free toner
    Because I need something without alcohol as it’s too drying on my skin. This stuff works perfectly.

    Toner:Moisture boost hydrating toner

  28. scarlettholly

    moisteriser: kiehls ultra facial lotion spf 15 or philosophy hij. Also just tried kiehls rare earth pore minimiser which I loved for a few days then left my skin dry so might use it when I’m breaking out.

    cleanser: kiehls ultra facial cleanser or philosophy purity followed by dermalogica daily micro exfoliant.

    toner: none, but tempted to try kiehls acai range…

  29. kimmar

    Toner: MAC Lightful Active Softening Lotion, not drying!!

  31. NaNa

    Cleanser: Philosophy Never Let Them See You Shine Scrub + Mary Kay Velocity Cleanser (simultaneously) in the morning, and either Lush Dark Angels or MAC VAE at night.
    Toner: C.O. Bigelow Dr. Galen Herbal Skin Tonic

    …But I’ll probably be changing the stuff I’m using right now since winter’s on its way. Even an oily skinned girl like myself needs a little extra moisture!

    Am I the only one? Proactiv, Proactiv, and Proactiv. The only thing that keeps me clear. Olay Regenerist Night at bedtime.

  36. queenmarie

    What’s your favorite daily moisturizer? Dr. Denese day cream–the one tinted with melanin. Looks thick, but doesn’t apply that way. Good for oily skin.
    What’s your favorite daily cleanser? Obagi gentle cleanser in the morn, Philosophy microdelivery peel face wash with my BELOVED Clarisonic every night.
    What’s your favorite daily toner? Don’t use a toner–the clarisonic gets my face SO clean I don’t need one. I used to have at least one or two breakouts always, but since Clarisonic found me thanks to my generous sis, I have NO breakouts. Ive been using it for almost a year now and have clear skin. You couldn’t pry that thing away from me, maybe when I’m dead. LOL

  37. shangrila

    Everything Pevonia Botanicals for me!

    Combination Cleanser
    Combination Toner
    Combination Care Cream :)
    (ps- their clay mask is AWESOME!!!!)

  38. Moisturizer: Aveeno Postively Radiant w/ SPF 15
    At night, I use Laneige Water Pack Plus and wake up with baby soft skin.

    Cleanser: Ole Henrikson African Red Tea Cleanser
    I have really dry skin and this just feels so soft and soothing on my skin! It’s a real treat to wash my face with it. (:

    Toner: Nars Hydrating lotion

  39. Favorite daily moisturizer: This always changes. i feel like I rarely get the same one more than once. something I keep coming back to is Origins a Perfect World which is an antioxidant moisturizer. I only use it as night because it has no SPF. However, this time around I’m trying Clinique’s Total Turnaround and i really like it.

    Cleanser: Right now I’m using Lush’s Coalface which is a bar cleanser. I really like the exfoliating properties and would buy this again. It doesn’t do much for removing makeup though so I also like the creamy Origins Perfect World cleanser.

    Toner: I don’t use toner everyday and maybe I should. I just use Clinique’s 2, usually included in their gift which purchase. I rarely buy toner but when I do I stick with this.

    I want to know what eye creams people are using!
