What Skin Care Do You Use?

i'm mostly curious what over-the-counter skin care you use? face wash? face lotion [with spf]? etc... i am looking to cut costs and switch to something cheaper. right now i use biore skin preservation. the face wash isnt too bad, about $6 but lasts a long time. but the lotions [day and night] are around $15 each.

  • I use Jordan Essentials gentle face bar ($5.50) and the shea body butter ($14) for moisturizing. My complexion has never been so clear.

  • Ok, I am on a mission today for skincare...to ALDI!! yes, seriously the ALDI stores have a line of skincare called LaCura and the reviews online are outstanding!!! (check out makeupalley.com for reviews on almost any product!)
    The best part is they are all less than $5.00!!! I am giddy with delight! I have a baby and have no $$$ to spend on skincare - the products are made in Germany and people have compared them to E. Lauder.
    Check them out at www.aldi.com (The makeup got good reviews too!)

  • I use soap and water on my face. ***gasp*** I know it's crazy. But it works for me! After I wash my face, I put lotion on - usually Lubriderm. If I am putting makeup on then I use Clinique (the yellow stuff) lotion.

  • Hello Agent Brez! :) I use Estee Lauder and Christian Dior, but I have found a few places to cut costs a bit. I save my Bare Minerals foundation for when I have a breakout because it covers very well, but I've found Maybelines Whipped Matte foundation in a jar is a great product. Maybeline also has good mascara, I like the Stiletto one.


    But, you asked about skin care products, not cosmetics, right? The only thing I've tried that's not Estee or Dior is Olay, but I think that's for more mature skin and you probably don't need that yet.  So....I guess I can't help ya out too much.  I've been using Estee Lauder since before you were born, so it's been a long time since I've tried something new. 


    Talk to you soon!  :)

  • Oil of Olay Definity works great for me, the twice a wk I use that neatrogena micr-vibrating thing (I put the Olay wash on the head and use that to clean my pores) for moisturizer I also use Olay's.
