Try pulling the ingredient list off your kobido and starting from there.

@LAB:  I like Skyn Iceland’s products the best, followed by Fresh. Chanel has some really good stuff too but way overpriced IMO (although if you’ve been shelling out for La Mer it’s probably pocket change to you). It’s hard to recommend skincare in such a generalized way. Are you concerned with acne? Dryness? Aging? Rosacea? There’s no “one size fits all” when it comes to skincare.

@LAB:  I just started using dermologica and am really happy with it so far.

Shiseido is a japanese cosmetic company and can be found at many department stores like Macy’s, Dillards, Sephora, and etc. You can always ask for samples before buying the full product.

I have combination skin and do get breakouts. I used to use Skyn Iceland and really liked them.  I have also used Dermalogica and it was not right for my skin.  I use Aveda products now.

@LAB:  I was unimpressed by La Mer as well. I was going to give a big second to Dermalogica (LOVE the daily microfoliant and resurfacing cleanser) and suggest Ole Henriksen. I really like the truth serum and actually notice a difference when I don’t use it. As of late, I am also really liking Peter Thomas Roth for anti-aging and have enjoyed the GlamGlow masks. (Skincare junkie here!)

My mom swore up and down my Skin Medica and her skin always looked awesome. She used to get it from her dermatologist.

My esthetician recommended Dermologica and I love it.

I love Clairins. For whatever reason, it works with my sensitive skin without feeling greasy or heavy while not breaking my budget. I’ve been using Amore Pacific, a Korean line, and many people swear by it. I don’t know if I notice any big difference yet, it is pretty expensive!! One of my friends who hated La Mer is a big SK II fan, which I would like to try out next. I also like Guerlain during the winter months.
