I always see infomercials for products that claim to make your skin look so fresh, smooth, redness free, smaller pores, less wrinkles, etc. I have acne prone skin and haven’t gotten much reprieve from being pregnant, however, I was wondering what you all used and products that you swore by. I would be most interested in a cream/lotion that makes my skin one even color(gets rid of old acne scars, etc.) and maybe mild wrinkles. Any suggestions are greatly appreciated! I figured I’d go to the ladies I trust:)

I’d love to know too. I’m using Clinique but curious if anyone’s tried RoDan and Fields? I was tricked into goin to a party the other night that wasellingthaw stuff. It’s pricey but it looked like it could really work.

I have adult acne and used just proactiv for a long time which worked fine but a few months ago I noticed that it just wasnt cutting it anymore. So now my regimen is wash with my proactiv in the morning (mostly because I have so much of it left and dont want to waste it…I plan on trying somthing different once I run out). I use philosophy hope in a jar for moisturizer. I then wash my face with philosophy purity and my clarisonic at night to really clean my face of all the makeup I wear during the day. I plan on doing exfolikate (kate sommerville) for a twice weekly exfoliating treatment (I have only used it once so far and liked it). I use a generic retin-a medication on my face at bedtime- this helps with acne but also has helped with past acne scarring (but it is prescription only and pretty harsh- at least at first).

I’m actually about to go do it …
Once a week I wax my face (brows, lip, side burns) with Sally Hansen strips. Then I put on a cucumber mask (real cheap and oh man does it feel good). I peel that off and scrub with apricot scrub. If I need it I follow with a biore pore strip over my nose (usually once a month). I then usually shower and get my face steamy and use my usual cleanser (neutrogena healthy skin which I use twice a day) and then when I get out if I need spot corrector for acne put rapid response gel from neutrogena on and then on with Philosophy Hope in a Jar. My skin looks and feels good for days after I do this! It takes a while though, so its my sunday routine.
ALSO: Make sure your makeup brushes are clean. I always clean mine thoroughly while doing my mask… it makes a huge difference with my skin to make sure my brushes are clean…

I have very acne prone skin, for the past 8 months I’ve been using the Paula’s Choice Anti-Acne regimen with some additional products. It’s kind of a lot of steps but SO worth it. Basically goes 1) wash with PC Normalizing Cleanser, rinse 2) tone with Neutrogina Oil Free Toner 3) tone with PC Acne Fighting Exfoliating Toner (it’s basically a 2% salicylic acid exfoliant) 4) apply PC Acne Fighting Treatment (benzoyl peroxide) 5) moisturize with PC Skin Balancing Moisture Gel.
There is a Regular Strength and an Extra Strength set, I’m experimenting with both but I’ve had GREAT results for as long as I’ve used the products. Paula’s Choice has a few different lines too, some products directed towards anti-aging, wringle treatments, etc.. can’t vouch for them but I do love this brand.

I have been a product junkie for years and have tried all of the high tech, high costs “miracle” products. I have a Clarisonic, I’ve used the philosophy regime, the Clinique, the Proactive, and I’ve had decent results with everything, but nothing really made my large nose pores smaller or prevented the acne completely or made my skin soft and even toned.
For the past few months I’ve been using the Oil Cleaning Method with pure argan oil and my skin is the best its ever been and my pores are smaller and my skin tone is even and glowy. I was hesitant to try it at first, but would totally recommend trying it to anybody that likes trying natural products or hasn’t had the results they’re looking for with more “traditional” methods. Here‘s a link with some info.

Luckily I found this regimin pretty early in life (started using the cleanser when i was 15 or 16 and added the moisturizer when I was 18 or 19) I’m 21 now and am generally happy with the overall appearance of my skin. I haven’t tried a ton of cleansers as this one has always done well for me, but i’ve tried sooo many misturizers and this is def the best. It isn’t overly greasy, it reduces redness (one of my main problems) and it gently exfoliates which is a great bonus! I love the non exfoliating cleanser with an exfoliating moisturizer, i don’t know why but it seems to work better than the reverse.

Clean and Clear Morning Glow moisturizer
