I have pretty sensitive skin that even tends to get a little dry and I use the Aveeno line. I think it’s called simply radiant or something and there is SPF in the moisturizer (which I find to be key). It’s all hypo allergenic and super gentle. I have used more expensive lines, but I honestly can’t tell a difference. I actually can’t remember the last time I had a zit!

I have VERY dry skin which I compare to the Sahara desert.  It is not sensitive and I get the occasional “monthly visit” pimple.

Face wash:  BioElements  – Moisture Positive Cleanser

Toner:  BioElements

Moisturizer – La Roche Posay Subsitane or Nutritic

I use proactiv cleanser twice a day (morning night and sometimes around supper time).

I use clinque toner and moisturizer (the yellow bottle stuff)

And I have an exfoliant cream I use every 3 nights… got it at the derms office but cant remember the name of it.

I have normal to oily skin too… my problem area being around my chin.

I have combination skin and I use Burt’s Bees Natural Acne Solutions Willow Bark scrub and toner, and Clinique Dramatically Different moisturizer. So far it’s made my face pretty nice and kept away most pimples (however it’s done nothing for my PMS pimples which I have right now), and it’s minimized my gigantic nose and chin pores by about half. I’ve been using it once daily for a month or so now but I think I need something stronger for the giant pores…benzoyl peroxide used to take care of those 100% but then I had a horrible allergic reaction to it one day and haven’t been able to use it since 🙁

Clinique, Clinique, Clinique. Right now I’m loving their Moisture Surge moisturizer during the day and the Youth Surge Age Decelerating Moisturizer at night.

And I LOVE Biotherm’s Biosource Clarifying Exfoliating Gel. Makes my face super soft!

I would say that I have normal skin and I get a regular “monthly” pimple, usually around my chin area. I use St Ives Apricot Scrub once a week and daily I use Neutrogena Deep Clean Cream Cleanser, Neutrogena Alcohol Free Toner and Aveeno Postively Radiant Daily Moisturizer w/ SPF 30.

I rotate through cleansers, but I will use pretty much any cleanser that does NOT contain benzoyl peroxide or salicylic acid, so pretty much any non-acne washes. I find they overdry and leave my pores open which makes me break out more.

Moisturizer I have been using Olay’s Complete All Day Moisturizer. It has SPF in it, and is just simple and clean. Love it!

I also use a thicker eye cream at night, I think that it is also Olay.

I have sensitive skin, not particularly oily or dry, and I use:

In the AM: Purpose cleanser

In the PM: A cheap washcloth with water only, Clinique gel lotion on dry areas if needed.

I also will use pure witch hazel as a toner if I’m feeling particularly oily or sweaty in the afternoon.



Washcloth gives best exfoliation ever, and nothing to clog your pores.


I believe that if you are good to your skin, you skin will be good to you.

@bride2bejc, I third Dermalogica!  I thought I had a freakish amount of their products, but sounds like you guys are right up there too.  Have you tried the new agesmart thermofoliant?  Good stuff.  I always bring their bodyblock and after sun repair on vacation too.

I’m currently using St. Ive’s Green Tea Scrub (it has salicylic acid for acne, though I only get the occasional pimple) and Aveeno Ultra Calming moisturizer. I don’t have much of a skin care routine at the moment.

I recently began using Boots’ Botanics line and really like it. My skin is pretty oily and their products help with it. And they’re not too expensive – you can buy them at Target. 

I used to use Cetaphil and still like their products.
