  • I've always been a bit dry/sensitive. Never had to deal with acne or anything like that. I've found that using a creamy, natural cleanser (I love the Aubrey Organics Vegecol Cleanser) and jojoba oil, coconut oil, or argan oil as a moisturizer are all I need to keep my skin looking and feeling great.

  • Oily, sensitive, very acne prone. I use Proactiv with Benzoyl Peroxide, Clean and Clear moisturizing lotion with salicylic acid to moisturize, and St. Ives Green Tea Scrub with salicylic acid to exfoliate, and I can't use Proactiv every day because of my skin sensitivity.

  • Yea Proactive doesn't work for me. It actually makes my skin oilier.

  • I have Olive skin tone & its sensitive. My T-zone is oily. I use the Clearskin line from Avon, I also have some from Clinique which are very good & use Oil of Olay moisturizer with SPF for oil/sensitive skin. It's light, good & affordable.
