  8. 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.

  10. I switch products often, but I try to keep it pretty simple.

    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

    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!
     
  11. 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
     
  12. i believe the simpler the better..
    i use clinique's liquid facial soap for oily skin
    clinique's dramatically different moisturizing gel
    and lancome's 3 in 1 cleanser

    for morning i sometimes use aqua fusion gel from lancome ( its baoslutely fabulous for summers since gel based and with spf 15

    :smile:
     
  13. 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.
     
  14. Here's My Skincare Regime

    Face:
    Skin type: awesome
    Targeting: Stay moisturized and healthy looking
    Cleanser: Garnier Fructis facial cream cleanser
    Exfoliator/Serum: Garnier scrub
    Facial Moisturizer: Start off with a tanning lotion with bronzer (the most moisturizing products out there!) followed with Deviant brand lotion (basically like Hempz products but created by the ex-lead chemist of Designer Skin)
    Sunscreen: Lancome Bienfait multi vital

    Body:
    Skin type: tends toward the dry side
    Cleanser: Hermes Kelly Caleche (thanks Sarah!) or Tone Mango Splash with Cocoa Butter
    Exfoliator: Philosophy brand Senorita Margarita hot salt scrub
    Moisturizer: My usuals are Deviant moisturizer, Victoria's Secret body butter (love spell or sweet daydream) or The Body Shop body butter (strawberry)
    Sunscreen: I wear a uniform every day, so none!
     
  15. 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!
