    What skin care products do you use?

    I have used Philosohy's Purity face wash for a long time and like it however the signs of aging keep getting two steps ahead. I was thinking of getting some products that would keep my pores from enlarging further. There are a ton of infomercials for celebrity skin care regimes like Heidi Klum, Susan Lucci and regular lines like Murad. Further complicating things are the drugstore staples like Olay. What do you use and is it worth the cost?

    I wash my face with Olay bar soap. After that, I use the Clean & Clear brand toner. It doesn't burn and it helps reduce the appearance of your pores, plus it helps cool down your skin, which is a nice feeling. If I use moisturizer, I use either Olay for sensitive skin or Stila tinted moisturizer.

    Then my makeup routine.

    I keep forgetting to use toner. I'll have to try Clean and Clear. Thanks for replying Aimster.

    I like it. I also sometimes use Seabreeze astringent to help deep clean. It really gets that dirt, oil & makeup that regular washing misses. I use the kind that helps prevent breakouts too and it helps clear up any zits I get (which thankfully is not often).

    I have used Seabreeze. It's a good product but it dries out my cheeks so that they crack. I think I might have to try a mask to deep clean instead. Have you ever tried Proactive? I hear that is good.

    Re: What skin care products do you use?

    I haven't used sea breeze since I was a teenager lol wow.

    All I do is a face wash in the shower, then I try to remember to use a cleansing pad at night. I usually use anacne one, though really they don't work well lol One I DON"T like is the Dove with micro beads.

    But my pores are just fine.

    I have hed mixed reviews of Proactive - it can REALLY dry your face but it camalso REALLY work. But I son't know first hand!

    I wash my face with Purity Made Simple, then scrub it with St. Ives microdermabrasion exfoliant (about $7 at Target) and then I moisturize with Doctor's Dermatologic Formula utlra lite oil free moisturizing dew. The DDF moisturizer is like $45 for a 1.7 oz bottle, but you only need one pump to moisturize your whole face. And it keeps my skin SO nice - not oily, not dry, just perfectly hydrated. Definitely worth the money.

    Re: What skin care products do you use?

    I wash with just plain Ivory soap to get my makeup off. That's what my dermatologist told me to use. Then, I break his rules a little and use Neutrogena Acne bar after that. I don't use toner, cause he said not to, unless I have an exceptionally bad break out. Then, he told me to try Stridex pads. When burn like heck...so, I might try that toner Aimster talked about. Just to use at those moments.Then, I have to put on my Retin-a. For moisterizer, I use Neutrogena Oil free face lotion. It's great....even has sunscreen. For my eyes, I just dab on some of my regular firming lotion. I have noticed that works better than the eye cream I was using.


    Aimster....what exactly is that toner? Like, the exact name. So, I can look for it.

    Also...has anyone tried those Dove scrubbers or the Neutrogena Wave? I'm thinking about getting on, since the retina dries my skin out bad. It can polish away any dead skin before it gets too bad.

    Re: What skin care products do you use?

    I used Philosophy Purity for a few years. When my face started to break out more frequesntly, I switched back to the Aveeno Clear Complexion line. My skin is dramatically improved. Plus it is much less expensive than the Philosophy products.
    Anything listed on the park maps as an attraction is fair game for inclusion in the Rally.
    I cannot confirm nor deny the inclusion of any attraction in the Rally.

    I used to use Philosophy... but due to money constraints I've downgraded to Olay products. I really like them and they are quite a bit cheaper!

    Where do you buy the Aveeno?

    I have heard really good things about the wave but haven't tried it yet.
