26-Concerns: Clear Skin and Fine lines - tried everything under the sun

(0) Hearts

Hi everyone,

 

I feel like I have tried so many products so now I want to get your opinion! First, I'm 26 with oily skin. My biggest concern are wrinkles. I'm starting to get the fine lines around the mouth. I don't use retinal because I think my skin is too sensitive for it. I've seen a lot of recommendations for OLE HENRIKSEN
Truth Serum Vitamin C Collagen Booster but I didn't see much of an effect on me. 

My other major concern is clear skin. Lately, I've been noticing I have small bumps all over my face - I'm sure my day/night moisturizer has something to do with this so I think if I get a good moisturizer, this will go away.

 

I have tried different lines from Shiseido, Amore Pacific, Ole Henriksen, Korres and Murad.

 

My current line that I'm trying is Origins. I like to keep my regime minimal so ideally I could get a night cream with anti-aging effects instead of using a serum + moisturizer.

 

I'm mainly looking for a night moisturizer but I am very open to other recommendations for day creams and cleansers.

 

Thank you!!

I am in a similar boat, but am 38. I tried numerous products and brands, and finally found a regimen that has produced amazing results for me. This is my regimen (see if you can get samples to try it out).

 

1. Apply Philosophy's Time in a Bottle Facial serum 

2. Apply Philosophy's Take a Deep Breath Mosturizer

3. Apply Philosophy's Miracle Worker Eye Cream

4. Apply Dr. Brandt's Pores No More Primer

5. Follow with makeup

 

I also wash my face each night with the Clarisonic, using the deep pore cleansing brush along with Philosophy Purity Face Wash.

If you can afford it, I highly recommend the Airelle Intense Repair Complex.  It is a very lightweight moisturizer but packs a very powerful punch!  It's pricey, but I think definitely worth it as I've experienced great results and it leaves my skin feeling AMAZING.  Unfortunately, for oily skin, I can't think of any other product that won't leave your skin feeling greasy, or will provide noticeable results.

A good moisturizer, cleanser and toner with spf and anti-aging ingredients should be enough! I'm 25 with oily skin too and I use Monsia skin renewal system which comes with cleanser, toner, moisturizer and night cream. It's anti-aging and it's very refreshing.

I would think that a night serum would have more punch for your targeted needs.  I love Estee Lauder Advanced Night Repair.  Then use a simple moisturizer.  But, whatever you do, make sure you only change one thing in your routine at a time or you will never know which product is causing you havoc.

What specific products from Origins are you using? I would look into a good AHA or BHA toner.

I bought the value set which includes the checks and balances cleanser and the GinZing moisturizer

Hi! I'm 27, and I'm starting to get fine lines on my forehead and I have been dealing with acne/small bumps on and off for awhile.

 

I really like Ole Henriksen Sheer Transformation as a night moisturizer. My skin is looking better in terms of bumps (though I must confess that my slight forehead lines look the same to me). I love that it doesn't break me out (which is a rarity for me).
