I use the clinique 3 step program (face wash, toner, and lotion) in the morning and at night. Occasionally in the shower I will use Cetaphil facewash, which has helped my skin alot.

At night time i also use clinique's
Continuous Rescue Antioxidant Moisturizer - Dry Combination

At night time and morning i use clinique's
All About Eyes™ Rich

So far that seems to be all I need :-) Clinique is awesome!

I use a lot of products but they've all been carefully tested out and screened meticulously from all the other junk I buy, so EACH product is excellent for a certain task. So what are you looking for may I ask? cuz I can't exactly recommend something and say all the others are "useless" when they do another task that's not in your best interest... lol PM me if you wanna chat!

Moisturizer:
- Morning/under Makeup: Lancome's Blanc Expert whitening milk/lotion OR Lancome's Bienfait SPF30
- Afternoon/night: La Prairie's Intensive Anti-wrinkle Anti-spot cream
- Once in a while: Lancome's Absolue Premium SPF cream
Serum:
- Everytime after cleansing face: Lancome's Blanc Expert Supreme Whitening serum
- After showers: La Prairie's Hydrating Serum
Masks:
- After showers: Lancome's Hydramask
Eye Moisturizer:
- La Prairie's Cellular Eye Contour
- (Also recently acquired Lancome's Absolue Premium eyecream recently, have yet to test it out)


Seems like you really like Lancome! Has their Blanc Expert line whiten your complexion? (you seem to have pretty fair skin) I'm using SKII Brightening lotion + Essence Treatment for the evening and am searching for a morning/under Make-up moisturizer... Do you use the Lancome Whitening Serum before the Blanc Expert moisturizer? Actually, I've never used Serums.. can it also serve as a moisturizer? Do I need to use both serum + moisturizer? Also, I'm wondering if La Prairie Cellular Eye Contour targets blue under eye lines and dark circles? My eyes always feels tired and I definitely have a lot of blue undereye circles. (Chanel's Sublimage seems good but am wondering if La Prairie is better?) Any advice is greatly appreciated! TIA. Btw, I'm Chinese, w/ pale/med skin tone.

loves pink!!!
I switch products often, but I try to keep it pretty simple.

Face:
Skin type: normal to combination (some shine in T-zone, some flakes in winter)
Targeting: keep pores clean and clear, minimize blackheads, prevent wrinkles, keep skin hydrated
Cleanser: SK-II cleansing oil, sometimes I use a cheap cleanser in the morning like Clean & Clear or Biore
Toner: none right now, but I liked Shu's toner in the blue bottle
Exfoliator: St. Ives apricot scrub (1x per week)
Serum: Boots no. 7 Restore & Renew
Weekly masque: Aspirin mixed w/ Queen Helene Mint Julep Masque, occasionally I use Origins Clear Improvement Masque
Facial Moisturizer: right now I'm using Nivea Aqua Sensation, but I like ROC moisturizer for combination skin
Sunscreen: Neutrogena Dry Touch SPF 45

Body:
Skin type: normal to dry
Cleanser: Dove Firming (love the smell)
Moisturizer: Nivea Firming on my top half, Nivea Smooth Replenishing Lotion on legs
Sunscreen: same as on face

It probably doesn't look simple written down, but it seriously only takes minutes!

Mine is really random because for a while I was buying a lot of different products, i'm still a product junkie but I am trying to restrain myself now.

My skin type is combination [oily T-zone] with NW20 skin.

In the morning:
Wash face in the shower with those dove face towlettes
Every few days exfoliate with aspirin
Use clinique lotion
then Aveeno for faces sunscreen

Night:
Use Olay moisturizing face wash with vitamin E
Clearisil acne cream
Clinique dramatically different moisturizer

Throughout the week I also use:
Mint Julep mask
Olay microdermabrasion kit-it's amazing for deep exfoliation once a week

How do you like the gel? I use the lotion and was thinking about switching the gel when it runs out but I heard it moisturize as well. But I find that the lotion can be too thick sometimes.

Yup, I do love Lancome. Their exfoliator and blanc expert line have really improved my acne-prone skin.
I don't think the blanc expert line actually whitened my complexion (something that many western women fear... cuz they prefer the tanned look...), but rather made the brown spots fade ~50% (and probably preventing new ones from forming). I'm also taking some medication that makes my skin sensitive to the sun, so that's why I always wear SPF and choose whitening products.
Generally, serums cannot be used as a moisturizer. However, if you have really oily skin, like me, and if it's in the summer time, you may be able to get away with just a serum that targets hydration like La Prairie's. Yet, most serums are more 'high-tech' (target wrinkles, spots, inflammation, redness, promote healing...etc) so they're not just for the sole purpose of hydration. Then again, even if you do use just a serum as a moisturizer... it's probably not a good idea to be using it several times a day because they're mainly supposed to be used at night (so not under makeup during the day) unless specified, AND it would be very expensive this way too since most serums are only 30-50mls.
I like La Prairie's Cellular Eye Contour and it's the best that I've used. For me, I have absolutely no puffiness around my eyes now (remember, I sleep 5 hours a day...) which is amazing imo, however I do still see some blueishness around the inner corner of my eyes. It is still much better than 2 years ago though. You may want to give this eyecream a try, or ask an SA to recommend one that's suitable for you. Good luck!
