  • Avon has a lineup called Liiv Botinicals. I usually suggest the Liiv Botanicals Scrub if you have acne as well. Its very good and fresh! You can try it at use code fsany at checkout for free shipping :)

  • I am using Arbonne's RE9 anti aging line and my skin cleared up without having to use their acne line. They also have the FC5 line with a set for oily/combination skin.

    Feel free to check out my site for more details.

    I can also send you samples to try if you like.

  • I agree with mommy492006. I too used mary kay products and had no problems. I used the Velocity Cleanser and Moisturizer. It only costs $22 for the set and lasts about a year. You can check it out at and shipping is free.
