What day/night cream do you use?

Postby Sonia22 on Mon May 30, 2011 9:12 am

Just wanted to know what's good out there. I have tried a few but it seems like all of them are the same to me. I am currently using Biotherm Vivo one but I don't find it that much different from the normal moisturizer. I need to get more but I am not sure what to go with. Should I spend lots if the cheaper ones work the same? Just want to know what works for you :) TIA

I try other brands but always end up going back to the oil of olay line. Their skin creams dont feel greasy.

If I am found vague, listless, or agitated. ADMINISTER CHOCOLATE IMMEDIATELY

Do you use an exfoliant? If you are not using a good exfoliant it won't matter what type of cream you use, it justs sits on top and doesn't penetrate. As we get older our exfoliation slows down and a daily scrub for example is not enough. If you are using an exfoliant you may need to find one that does a better job. Glycolic or enzyme peels are great. Using a cream with a glycolic in it too helps also if you have dry skin.

I have combination skin, oily t-zone. I use one of those handheld vibrating thingy that you stick a pad on to exfoliate. Sorry, i don't really pay attention to what they are called. lol.

I really like Aveeno for everyday/all day use. It's non-greasy, non-scented, and it really works for me. I have sensitive skin, too, but never have a problem with Aveeno. My siblings have bad excema and they are Aveeno users as well, as it works best for them. There are a bunch of different strengths/problem area sorts, but I just go with the Daily Moisturizing Lotion. I find that a little goes a long way. A thin layer after my morning shower, and I'm good all day and night. I just carry a small travel size for re-applying to my hands after handwashing. Try a trial size, and if you like it, Costco sells a 2-pack of large pump bottles. :-D

Currently I'm using body shop natrulift cream (I also use the toner and cleanser). It's a bit too scented for my liking but I likening way it makes my skin feel.
