I was just curious if anyone had any good skin cream suggestions. I very rarely wear foundation or heavy makeup but I’m looking for something to give me a bit of a younger appearance. Tighten my skin. A fresher look. Any ideas? Thanks so much.

I do have a suggestion, but first, do you exfoliate? It really sloughs of the dead skin and makes your face glow!! I use St Ives Apricot Scrub which is super inexpensive and the one I have is a face firming one, its fantastic!!
For moisturizer, I would recommend either Philosophy, specifically this box:
Tho Hope in a Jar is awesome (a lighter version comes in a tube and it does sell separately) ! They also have a box for oily skin as well. If anything, I really recommend the cream.
I also like Korres, so anything in their line as well! I have some training in skincare if that helps at all, I used to work for sephora as a skincare consultant!

I really like estee lauder advanced night repair serum. It has really done wonders for my 34 year old face 😉
I tend to view my skincare as an ‘investment’.

Forgot all the expensive lotion potions that don’t work whatsoever. Beauty comes from the inside out. Eat a palnt-based diet full of essential fats such as coconuts, avocados, raw cashews, etc., and your skin will grow! What I use is: Organic Extra virgin, unrefined Coconut Oil. 1 full jar is $10. It’s a antibacterial, anti inflammatory, and it helps to preserve skin, smooth fine lines, and even heal stretch marks which I had on my lower stomach. It’s also been used to clear up acne, even though it doesn’t seem like it since it’s an oil. Another one I recommend is organic avocado mask. Take a fresh avocado, leave it on for 30+ minutes. Eating plenty of fruits and vegetables will also improve the skins appearance bc of the antioxidants.

@MrsOliveBird: Btw, Este L. tests on animals 🙁 Do you really want to support that?

Nude Miracle Mask- it’s expensive, but worth every penny

St.Ives is fantastic….I absolutely love their range…I also use Argan oil. It is not heard of much but it is a natural source of vitamin E for skin care and health. It feels wonderful.

I swear by Reviva Labs products. Good ingredients without possible irritants like perfumes and dyes. They make a good night cream with Ester C, DMAE, and ALA. I adore their DMAE firming fluid and their make-up primer is top-notch. I get mine through vitacost.com – they seem to have the best prices.

@SurferB: I was simply responding to a question asked. I love Estee Lauder. It works for me. I also wear leather and eat meat. So shoot me.
Besides, as per their website- ‘No. The Estée Lauder Companies Inc. is committed to the elimination of animal testing. We are equally committed to consumer health and safety, and bringing to market products that comply with applicable regulations in every country in which our products are sold.
We do not conduct animal testing on our products or ingredients, nor ask others to test on our behalf, except when required by law. We evaluate our finished products in clinical tests on volunteer panels.’
I sleep soundly at night.

What skin type do you have?

I highly recommend Estee Lauder’s Day Wear with sheer tint and spf15. It is more expensive ($35) than any other products I buy, but it is the one make-up item that I won’t give up. Over the years, I’ve experimented with cheaper skin creams and none look or feel as good on my skin as Day Wear. I combine it with a few drops of Oil of Olay to make the bottle last a little longer. I also use the Oil of Olay after I wash my face at night.

Its okay. I was just informing you. But now that you mention it… So you’re okay with testing on animals?? Este Lauder may say that on their website, but they have been caught many times indeed testing on animals.

@SurferB: Hmm off topic… let’s not criticize.

@SurferB: I’m a vegetarian and all, but you attacking this girl who does not share your beliefs is ridiculous.
