I use Oil of Olay eye cream and the age defying hydroxy cream. I received a full size ProX wrinkle smoothing cream as a freebie, thank goodness because I don't like it, sits on top of the skin. I hate to try new products especially with sunscreen, I don't like the feel of creams with sunscreen, and then just end up throwing them in the garbage. I would love to find a cream, needs to be moisturizing, with sunscreen that felt good on the skin.

So my question, what do you like, works for you? What do you hate? How much do you spend on your products? Truthfully, I hate to even spend the $20 for Olay products.

I do not buy moisturizer with sunscreen anymore because it aggravates my rosacea. The only one that doesn't is Philosophy, though it is pricey.

Personally, I use makeup with sunscreen to provide both a chemical and physical barrier, and wear a lot of hats. :)

Try thousands of years old Virgin Coconut Oil, no additives or suspect stuff added to it. Solid but melts at about 75 degrees.

Why put something on your skin that you're afraid to eat?

I don't do a lot with facial stuff, but I use St. Ives Intensive Healing lotion. Make sure it is the Intensive Healing! It works the best for me, and I use it all over, face, hands, legs, and arms. It's not cheap for regular lotion, but it's much less than $20, and it's the only thing that works for me. It's not greasy, and goes quickly into the skin. :thumbup:

Wow! I have some in the kitchen, never thought to use it for skincare. I'll give it a try, Thanks.

I like the new Aveeno. the intense cream. It runs anywhere from $7.00 - $10.00 at CVS Or Riet-Aid.
the coconut oil works well also. I use that on my hair 3 or 4 times a yr.
Grapeseed oil also works wonderfully. you can cook with it, use it on your face and it is great on your feet. Grapes, ground grape seeds, and grape seed oil are anti-oxidents also.

I don't use sunscreen as much as I should, I hate the greasy feel and makes you sweatier on a hot day.

For moisturizing my face I use Purity, which is what you get at Hampton Inns. Very light, nice scent. Also their Purity soap does not leave my face dry like other soaps.

Do they still make Oil of Olay? The pink lotion that our mothers used to use. I know they have a large skincare line, wondering about the original.
