After having used Elizabeth Arden products for years, I found that my skin got dryer with age (I'm 41) and the EA creams were not working anymore, and decided to try something new. My skin is not only dry, but also sensitive (freckles, easily burned in the sun etc) so I wanted to try out the Clinique 3-step treatment. Previously, I have only rinced my face in water and hydrated with a moisturizer. Now, after having used the Clinique line for 5 months, my face is a total disaster. I have more spots & blemishes than I had as a teenager... The soap - and facetonic thing is obviously too strong for me (and yes, it is the sensitive skin version), so I stopped using them and just use the moisturizer for now. Some improvement after that, still very bad. And this is supposed to be a gentle skincare line... So my question is: does anyone know of a gentle skincare that really works?
