No one hey !
Hee Hee - This stuff is old school.
I've been reading the book "Skin Type Solutions", and started using this-- I have dry and oily skin, but they say--"you still need moisture on you face". I use this at night tissue it off, then wash with cleanser (pHsioderm or cetaphil) and moisturize with neutragena oil free sensitive (then use self tanner)
I am acne prone (help!) but am sensitive to acne stuff. Its hard to balance combination skin.
Anyone with combo skin, what is your skin regimen day and night??

I have used Pond's cream before. Personally, I hate most lotion as it always make my hands feel wet and stuff.
My sister got me the Menard Fairlucent Clear Soap two weeks ago. Its expensive, like $50 CAD. But it lasts for a long while and its actually pretty good. My ache is not very bad right now. And i am not using the ache medicine on my skin now.

Oh yeah I was using Neutrogena like two months ago and I just got all rash up. I had been using that for a few years since the last time i got the clear soap. i guess that i am allergic to it now.

So I have extremely sensitive skin as well, but I've finally found a plan that works for me. It's different from summer to winter, as the weather changes cause drier or more oily skin between those changes.
Overall, I always clean every morning and every night with Sensitive Skin Spectro Gel. In the morning after cleansing I then use a daily exfoliator from Dermologica, Vichy Toner, then moisturize with Normaderm (Vichy) oil free. At night, I only cleanse then moisturize. The only difference to this, is in the winter I use Aquafilia Light (also Vichy) instead of the Normaderm, as my skin's a lot drier in the winter months. I've found the Vichy moisturizers work best on my sensitive skin, but I've also heard Aveda products are supposed to be good.
Hope that helps

I just started using it as a cleanser/moisturizer a couple of weeks ago and I really like ! It has helped get rid of a pimply rash on my cheek that has been there for months. I also noticed that I was starting to get wrinkles in my forhead and this seemed to be the only thing that moisturized it enough to make those disappear.
I actually leave the cream on my face after I apply it. I just dab it off a bit with a tissue to remove the shine/excess. It's very moisturizing and leaves my skin feeling so soft. Often I will then apply another moisturizer, like almond oil or something with Vitamin E or A, especially around my eyes. The first couple of days using it it seemed to give me a pimple or two, but now it only seems to balance my skin, and lots of bumps other imperfections I had in my skin seem to be disappearing. I think it has a balancing effect for my combination skin which tends to be extremely dry/flaky, yet also acne-prone.

I just thought I would add that when I wash my face, I do it with a mild soap before I apply the Pond's. Unless I'm wearing make-up, then I remove it with Ponds, and then wash with mild soap, and then put more Pond's on, and then the other moisturizer.
