What facial cleanser do you use? I am in search of a new one . . maybe.

I am 34, starting to show some sag and wrinkles and have combo skin with a very oily t-zone and a lot of congested pores so I typically use a facial cleanser with salicylic acid to help keep it under control. Right now, I am using Clinque's Acne Foaming Fash Wash. It's ok. I've had fair results. I'm just not sure that my skin looks as good as it could. I am just about out so I thought that I might try something new. Any recommendations? I don't mind spending $20-$30 if it is good. Thanks ladies!!!

  • I can't live without Neutrogena's Invigorating Scrub...I'm a self proclaimed product junkie and this is it for me! I use Clinique's Clarifying Toner as well.

  • I use Olay's Daily Facials Lathering Cleansing Cloths - Hydrating for Normal to Dry Skin as my facial cleanser and Olay's Complete All Day UV Moisture Lotion - Normal as my facial lotion and it works really well, I'm pregnant and my facial skin hasn't changed from before I was pregnant.

  • Mary Kay Timewise 3-1 Cleanser for Comb. to Oily skin works great!!!
    This combination to oily formula washes away excess oil with a lathering cleanser that leaves skin feeling thoroughly cleansed and balanced. It cleanses, exfoliates and freshens in one step as it begins the process to reveal younger-looking skin. Plus, it's gentle enough to use twice a day for soft, smooth and refreshed skin.
    it's only $18 normally and all my new customers get a 25% first time ordering discount so it would only be $13.50 plus tax . I can send you a sample of it first if you'd like to try it first.let me know :)

  • I am 38 and have exactly the same skin. Starting to wrinkle but still breaking out at times. I don't think that any one product helps when your skin is that combination. I have been using a combination of different products between Anti-Aging and Acne and have come up with the perfect combination. I have given this combo to alot of other women in the same situation and it has been a Godsend. Let me know if you would like me to send you a sample free so that you can test it out to see if it works for you too.

  • Try the Anew Daily Resurfacing Cleanser 426-374 Its good for antiaging but also doesn't make you look oily! You should get a good cream to use too. Anew has lots of very good ones. I have a few customers with your exact problems that really like the ANEW Rejuvenate Dial-A-Glow Anti-aging Moisturizer SPF 15. Anew makes makeup that is age defying too. Its all at very good prices :) You can get it at through that link you can get free shipping with code fsany !

  • I use Olay's Total Effect Facial Cleanser. It's an anti-aging, non-foaming cleanser that also contains salicylic acid to fight breakouts.
