Help with skin problem
I've tried all types of skin care products including Meaningful Beauty and nothing improves my skin. I have uneven tone, dark spots and large pores. I'm at my wits end because nothing I've used works. It either makes my skin red and blotchy or nothing. I"m only 56 and have combination skin.

Have you tried Origins, Caudalie, Ole Henriksen or Korres products?
I haven't found any skincare that's gives long term results for large pores, but for uneven skintone and dark spots, peels are the best and serums are next best.
I'm 23 and I use their Brighter by Nature peel twice a week for a couple of weeks. It stings a little bit but not as bad as the peels in liquid form (ExfoliKate or Jurlique), and the skin is a bit flaky the second day. After a couple of weeks tho, my skin is smooth, incredibly soft, and it significantly lightened and flattened the raised dark spot near my hairline (I couldn't find it at first glance and have to feel it out). It is definitely effective for uneven tone and dark spots. http://www.sephora.com/product/productDetail.jsp?s
If it's too harsh for you, I suggest Dr. Dennis Gross Alpha Beta peel, I didn't feel any irritation or sting whatsoever even when I tried the extra strength one: http://www.sephora.com/alpha-beta-daily-face-peel-
A gentler treatment that's probably better for your sensitive skin but takes longer to show result is brightening serums. Origins, Caudalie, and Ole Henriksen all have good serums that have brightening and anti-aging effects. Korres Wild Rose kit is brightening and anti-aging and might be worth checking out. If your skin is red and blotchy because it feels thin/fragile/raw/damaged, you might also want to try a cream/moisturizer that encourages cell renewal or collagen production, which strengthens your skin.
You may want to look into skin care called Vivite, that's what I use. The same company that makes Botox makes it. It is a physician strength product so you do have to get consultation before they let you buy it. it's expensive but they do have a travel size pack with all the products that you need in it for 30.00. If you want to check it out you can look at it on essential dermcare.com. Good luck!
