I have normal-dry, dehydrated, clog-prone skin with a tendency to scar & mark very easily. Very fair skin.
Lancome Genefique Youth Activating Concentrate - I know you are supposed to use it under a serum, but my skin is doing quite well just under basic moisturizer.
Caudalie Pulpe Vitaminee 1st Wrinkle Serum
Juice Beauty Blemish Clearing in the Summertime when I'm oilier.
This is a review I read on MUA for EL Advanced Night Repair... it made me laugh SOO hard.
"I'm now in my mid-thirties. I used to smoke. It started to show about age 31, when I couldn't help but notice I always looked tired in the morning, no matter how much sleep I'd gotten. "You're not tired. You're old," my older sister explained. I bought a bottle of this brown stuff, then, because it was expensive, which felt important in a magical thinking way, and because it was much recommended by magazines and it didn't seem like a trendy thing but very dowdy and I figured if it was dowdy it had to be doing something not to be discontinued after all this time. I had no idea if it was doing anything, actually. I just kept using it before bed, like I just kept brushing my teeth. Then I went away on a trip for a week and I forgot to take it. Two days into my trip, when I looked in the mirror one morning, I stopped breathing briefly. My face looked like unfolded origami. I cursed every delicious cigarette and every warm bask in the sun. When I got home, in what I felt was an advanced state of decomposition, I carefully washed and exfoliated and aspirin-masked and then slapped the brown stuff on followed by my usual basic moisturizer. A few days on, I looked plausibly like a woman who could still bear children. After a week, I got catcalled by one of those unemployed guys who hangs out next to the bakery. I glared at him, yet I confess I felt relief. I think this stuff does something. What or how, I cannot tell you, but I am not leaving it behind again."
I use ANR and just think it makes me skin look better. But mainly I use it because I've seen so many older woman that don't look older and they've used it for years :) So I use it as a prevention.
I LOVE EL Idealist for help with my pores. I won't go a day without this. I also just started using Lancome Visoinaire. I think I like it, but it is super duper expensive. I started using DDF Glycolic Toner at the same time, so it's hard to tell which is the one helping my skin LOL.
vit c serum, but you can't put it on straight because it is harsh like retinol (vitamin A) I buy mine on amazon with vit E and ferulic acid help to stabalize it and are great powerful antioxidants as well. I put 3 drops in my daily moisterizer, and added bonus, Vit C is a natural sun protectant.
