Inb4 facial-

I use mostly the ordinary products, work like a charm. Quite cheap online but the shipping is a pain

I get them from boots because I get 10% student discount, although they don't have the full range. 

I also get stuff from feelunique. You can choose 2 brands to be permanently discounted i think?

I'll be looking for tips on this one although I have rosacea so I need to be careful. I use a special dermatologist-prescribed face wash and make sure to always finish with cold water to close the pores

Anyone have a sunscreen that they particularly like?

1) Completely did NOT know they sell T.O at boots, I looked months ago in numerous stores hoping I’d be able to buy it more locally and I had no luck.

They might not carry many products in-store. You can do click and collect, if you cant hit the minimum for free delivery.

@BenG OMG boots have the ordinary like Fr?? :dead: you’re a life saver 

They also have The Inkey List. It's similar to The Ordinary.

I have really really dry and sensitive skin so I need to use very hydrating products

I usually cleanse my skin with aloe vera in the morning and then use Yves Rocher riche crème as moisturizer. I try to use Lush’s moisturizing face masks once a week. In the evening, I usually wash my face/take off my makeup with either Nivea’s rose water face wash gel or Nivea’s naturally good micellar face wash and then cleanse my skin with some micellar water to remove the extra make up + moisturize my face.

I just ordered myself an eye cream for dark circles and I can’t wait for it to arrive.

I also have rosacea. For my face, my preferred sunscreen is Shiseido Senka Mineral Sunscreen. It leaves no white cast and is both moisturizing and cosmetically elegant. My previous fave was Biore UV Watery Essence, but it was reformulated to be waterproof, and now it breaks me out. In short, Japanese sunscreens are the most cosmetically elegant. I look for ones that are PA ++++ and at least 50 SPF.

Thanks, I might have to try this since I prefer mineral sunscreens whenever possible but I haven't found one that I am completely in love with. I think the best success I've had is with Sun Bum's Mineral SPF 50 Sunscreen

My skin care routine is basically just neutrogena oil-free face wash 3/week + the ordinary AHA 30% & BA 2% 1/week.

I have very dry skin and I absolutely haaaaate the feeling of moisturizer (and spf and foundation). I've tried like all of the cerave moisturizers, they're... fine, kind of pile-y under makeup. I thought I would love lano 101 ointment but it's... fine. I actually love plain old aquaphor (I'm a chapstick addict) but I know it's a petroleum by product, comedogenic so I resist lathering myself in it. I really need a good gel-based moisturizer!

my skin is a mess and a half, i have a lot of acne and some medication i take for it causes my skin to be incredibly dry no matter what. i wash my face twice a day with a foaming face wash and then use some weird moisturizer so my skin doesnt completely rip apart because of the dryness:dead:

My skin has always been terrible and I don’t know what to do :dead: i’ve tried everything that I could afford but i’m broke so consistency is hard and my skin is sooo sensitive that products people swear by like Paula’s Choice just eff up my skin completely, chemical burns and dry scaly red patches even when using a tiny amount.

I’m so depressed and exhausted some nights i can’t even be bothered to wash my face :gaga-scream:

right now I am using a sensitive skin cleanser from Bioderma, Riversol anti aging serum, The Ordinary Mandelic acid, Thayer’s Rosewater Toner and a variety of moisturizers from Kiehl’s, Cerave and also a Garnier one I got discounted at a grocery store.

I’m pretty sure the Kiehl’s one is too heavy for me because I get so many white heads after I use it but my skin is sooo dry sometimes... (but also oily as hell simultaneously somehow)

@GagaSine Have you tried just stripping back your routine to the basics?

After cleansing and toning, I would suggest hyaluronic acid (it's cheap from The Ordinary/The Inkey List), then moisturize with the CeraVe one. Mandelic acid at most twice a week.

Following this. I'm 28 and I don't have a skincare routine and I'm to the age where I direly need one. My face makes no sense to me. I'll go a year without a single pimple and then I'll have 2+ months straight of huge painful pimples on my forehead and or chin, then I'll be back to nothing for months. I hate it :bradley:

Thinking of just sticking with Cetaphil which I've used for years ffor a few months and if that works, still using that, but if not...maybe start going for some advanced formulas.
