    I use Clinique 3 step skin care system. I use both night and day. At night i use a makeup wipe to remove my makeup.

  2. In the morning, I use either Noxzema original or The Body Shop Aloe face cream to wash, then Clinique toner #1 (if I’m feeling dry) or #3 (if I’m feeling oily), then Avon Luminosity Ultra day cream. At night I use Noxzema, the Clinique toner again, then Avon Rejuvenate cream. I use Nivea creme for an eye cream, or sometimes Clinique All About Eyes.

    Also I use Avon eye makeup remover. Sometimes I use the Clinique Acne solutions line. I also have a few masks I like to use occasionally.

  3. I use Boots’ Sensitive Skin Cleansing Lotion, both morning and night, followed by Paula’s Choice Liquid Exfoliant. In the morning I follow these with Olay Complete moisturizer SPF 15, and in the evening I also use Koh Gen Do’s Spa Water and Dermalogica’s Intensive Moisture Balance.

    Day and night (although I skip the moisturizer at night a lot) Lush Fresh Farmacy face cleaner soap, Burt’s Bees Tomato Toner and Cetaphil Moisturizer.

    In the AM I wash with Neutrogena Acne Face Wash/Cetaphil and moisturize with Olay Complete. In the PM Cetaphil, Queen Helene Oatmeal & Honey facial scrub and follow up with this new Garnier product I’m testing for the company…so far so good.

  6. Rainbow

    I use Clinique 3 Step skincare – the liquid soap for oily skin, plus toner #2. I also use Dermadoctor’s Calm, Cool, and Corrected cream as a moisturizer. It seems to keep my skin under (fairly good) control.

    AM : Lush Baby Face soap, Lush breath Of Fresh Air toner and Nivea Day Cream (in the young skincare line).
    PM : Lush Baby Face soap, Lush A Crash Course in Skincare face mask, Lush Breath of Fresh Air toner and Nivea Night Cream (again, for young skins). And twice a week (I have sensitive skin, and exfoliating more makes it red) I use the Bourjois exfoliant. I do it at night most of the time.

    I’ve been using this combo for over two weeks now and my skin is glowing. It really looks better.

    Evening: Philosophy Purity cleanser and hope in a jar

    Its working OK. I really like the cleanser and moisturizer. I think I might try clinique’s 3-step system next.

    I have acne prone skin, and I’m currently using Neutrogena’s Rapid Clear line. I had tried prescription treatments as well as the Clinique set, but this is far less drying and it’s keeping me nice and clear. Morning and evening I use their gentle exfoliating cleanser, followed by the treatment pads and then the moisturizer. It works and I only get occasional breakouts now. I also use an exfoliating mask at least a couple of times a week, such as Brazen Honey from Lush. If I am too tired from a late night out then I always keep remover wipes handy so I can at least clean the makeup off my face before bed!

    I use only Paula’s Choice products (avail online only) and wash my face in the evening only because I have skin more to the dry side.

    I use her skin recovery wash and toner, 1% BHA lotion for blackheads, sometimes I use a 8% AHA gel – about once a week, antioxidant concentrate serum, and moisture boost treatment cream.

    In the morning sometimes I will use the toner if I feel like I need it. I put on an antioxidant spf15 lotion.

    I guess I lied, because I then use the MAC prep and prime.

    I have been using these products for almost a year and my skin is so much better. My blackheads are going away and I rarely get pimples now. My dry skin patches that I used to get are a thing of the past for me. I almost can’t believe it.
