I really like clean and clear’s persegel. It has benzoyl peroxide, so it can bleach clothes- be careful! But I feel like it shrinks my pores when I use it overnight.

I’m not sure if it would help in this situation, but I’m a strong advocate for honey as a face product- I use it on my face before bed, and frequently leave it on overnight, and it heals and smooths out any issues while I sleep- has also been great for FI! I recommend a raw/unprocessed honey, ie, not what comes in the little squeezie bears!

I know you said you hoped to buy the products at Walmart, but honestly, in all the time that I’ve had difficult skin, the ONLY thing that has ever really helped me was just going to a dermatologist, and buying myself nice foundation.  My skin has just always been really sensitive and I tried soooo many different things, and I didn’t start to feel really happy with it until I took the derm plunge.  If you have the time and money, it’s probably the best way to go.

To minimize pores, make sure you’re drinking enough water, wearing sunscreen on your face everyday, and washing your makeup off everynight.  That helps a lot.

I used Mederma a lot for my scar after surgery, but I think it’s most effective right after you get the scar.  Sunscreen is good for scars too because it blocks sun damage that could darken your scar.

For eye-firming, my friend likes the Garnier roll-on one (not sure of the exact name).  I’m a MK-holic, but you can’t find that at Walmart.

You need a primer. for your scars.

My cheap version is just as good as expensive Smashbox Photo Finish  TRUTH! 

It’s Anti-chaffing gel by Monistat.  It’s made for athletes who get rub burns at the top of their inner thighs, just below the panty line.
