    I am looking for a decent facial skin care regime, that actually lives up to its claims!!!!!
    Thought who better to ask than you lovely ladies!
    I'm looking for a full regime from the same range, at a reasonable (yet negotiable :rofl: price if its gonna be good) thats nature friendly as much as it can be.

    I've got combination skin, with fairly large pores that i'd like to see shrink a bit!!!! :blush: Quite prone to break outs and skin gets a bit oily at :witch: time of month. :hissy: Yet it can and will be dry when it feels the urge!!!!!! :hissy: I also have quite a dull complextion which i hate sooo much!!!!!

    Any suggestions???? Might be worth adding i'm not a huge fan of soaps, can't help but feel they're a lil bit un hygenic!!! So i'd prefer bottled or tubed stuff really.

    The best skincare stuff i've ever used are the Liz Earle products! I got mine from QVC. They really are amazing. I couldnt live without the Cleanse&Polish!! xxx

    My moms a cosmotologist. She suggests dermelogica. A little pricey but works great, and they have stuff for every type of skin.

    I was going to suggest Dermalogica, as well. For years i used other stuff until I started using Dermalogica after a skin mapping and facial. None of the other skin products worked well. I need to add that I will not use anything but Dermalogica on my skin now. I cannot recommend it enough.

    The initial outlay is expensive, but you use so little of the stuff that it lasts for months and months. I bought a large bottle of the skin cleanser nearly a year ago and use it daily. I still have a quarter of the bottle left. It has made a huge difference in my skin and the OH said my skin has looked better and more even since I started using it. I would suggest to go for a skin mapping first that will show what products you should use.
