My skin is very oily/combo and has large pores. I also have redness and hyper pigmentation all over my face. I've tried samples of both Murad's and Clinque's products, and none of them have stung my face. However, both are pretty expensive ($50~~~) and I don't want to buy both because a) too much money and b) I don't want to overwhelm my skin with a slew of skincare products. I know Clinique can target anything that's wrong with your skin, while Murad's hydrator can only do so much. Has anyone tried both these products enough to recommend one over the other?
I am wondering if anyone has tried both the dry combination and the combination oily/oily versions of Clinique's Youth Surge Age Decerlating Night Moisturizer? Is there that much of a difference between the two? I had a sample of the combination dry that wasn't enough to tell what the long term results/problems might be--I have dry skin sometimes but my pores clog really easily, especially in my T-Zone and I am blemish prone even though I tend to get dry cheeks and surface dryness overall. Just wondering if anyone had personal experience they could speak from.
I have really bad acne scar and ance-prone skin! so im wondering should i get the clinique even better dark spot corrector or the estee lauder even skintone illuminator! do you have any suggestions? i have oily skin and just want one that really helps with my scarring! or if you have a better suggestion on what product i should use? thank you
I'm sure we all wish we could turn back the clock to reveal a clear complexion, and baby-soft skin. Before sun damage, acne, and wrinkles. Even I, a 13 year old girl, could only dream. While it is physically impossible to grow younger, thankfully, due to the superior knowledge of scientists, we have cosmetics that can help us conceal and even heal our skin concerns. But before I recommend any products, I suggest taking this quick and easy skin type quiz. Your answers will help you decide which skin care regimen is fit for you. Let's begin.

For those of you that use the NuBrillance Microdermabrasion Kit, the 2 tips that come in the kit, are they coarse (for the body), normal (for the face), or fine (for the eyes, nose, and lips)? Also, are the results worth the price?
