Skin Care Moisturizers, cleansing, toning, and cosmetics in general...

Anyway, I thought it would be fun to know what you all use for skin care... Me, I use mostly Clarins products, but I figure I should change, they're good but too expensive. Well, cosmetics are expensive in general, if only because all the regulations companies have to follow to make their products safe, even if they're not that effective... That's why you don't need a prescription to use them.
The one that bothers me the most is this sucker: Clarins Vital Light Day SPF 15... Over a $100... I mean the quality is there, but I feel so dumb every time I pay that kind of money for a jar. If any of you knows something that is just as good without the tag, please let me know. It does the job... One step in the morning, no need to use sunscreen, and it gets absorbed very quickly by the skin making you feel clean all day without that skin tension you get when you're not hydrated enough.
For night treatment, I actually use something more reasonable: Reversa anti-spot night care. I have a few spots left from my pregnancies, so I use a night cream with 8% glycolic acid, which has been proven to actually work. In fact, you can get a prescription from a dermatologist if you want a cream with a higher percentage of that ingredient. Best thing is that it's not that expensive, about $40 here in Canada.
Anyway, that's it for now... Again, I should take a picture of the counter in the washroom... I barely have space to put stuff anymore between all the creams, makeup, and hair products.

Though just a quick thought, how do the creams affect the worms and critters. It would be amusing if you had wrinkle free worms

all i do now is moisturise with sorbolene. it's the cheapest and it works. if i don't keep moisturised, my eczema flares up and i get little patches of rough skin all over my legs and arms.

They also have a Aveeno positivelly ageless eye cream as well as night cream...
My doctor was suggesting some Johnson & Johnson products for my eczeema, but I didn't want to use them. It ended up that she's very satisfied with the results and she said she's going to reconsider her recommendations for future patients. If you try them, I believe you would be really happy with results...

Cleanser is Sparkling Clean - Oil-Control Foaming Gel Cleanser cost €24
Moisturiser is Clear Difference - Advanced Oil-Control Hydrator costs app. €50
New Moisturiser is DayWear - Advanced Multi-Protection Anti-Oxidant Lotion €60
However unfortunately they took the Clear Difference off the market here (you can still get it in the US and when I go there will definately stock up again) a few years ago and at the time I bought about 6 bottles. I finished the last bottle about 2 months ago so started to use Day Wear Lotion, while it is good and feels nice on my skin it is not my Clear Difference.
