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?

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. 
 

2) Also did not know about the Feel Unique discount thing - however I’m not a fan of them in general as I’ve had bad experiences ordering presents for my mum from there 

 

I usually order from either Beauty Bay or ASOS - however both ranges are extremely limited except for BB on good days

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?

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

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 use Hawaiian Tropic Sheer Touch Lotion Sunscreen and I think it works well. Although it does leave your skin a bit glittery, especially if you use a lot of it so just be aware of that.

My skin type is normal to oily.

I use a Cerave foaming facial cleanser every day and it has actually cleared up my face a lot since I’ve been using it. I’m pretty acne prone and this is really the first cleanser that has worked on my face as I’ve tried many different ones in the past and they haven’t worked as well. I tried Proactive but it actually worsened my acne so I stopped using it, although I must say they have the best moisturizer I’ve ever used. It is priced at $30 though, so a bit pricey.

The current moisturizer I use is a Cerave daily moisturizing cream that works so well. Leaves my skin feeling so soft.

And that’s my entire skin care routine. Not much to it but it works for me.

Hey me too! I ordered a Cocokind Revitalizing Eye cream awhile back but will get it later this month due to it being on back order. I hope it works and I hope yours works as well!

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:
