Hello everyone this is my first question and I'm new here. I'm a 31 year old female so I'm at that age where I'm starting to notice very fine lines on my forehead. There's this one very defined line going vertically in between my eyebrows on my forehead which really bothers me. So now I have to deal with this on top of all the other skin issues I've been dealing with since I was a teenager. I have extremely oily skin(which I was hoping would delay any wrinkles till later on in life). I have large clogged pores from all the oil my skin is producing and it's very annoying. I've used all kinds of products to combat the oil. When I use oil blotting sheets it's pathetic the amount of sheets that I go through until the oil is sopped up. It's so frustrating because this issue is only on my face and also on my scalp and my ears so basically above my neck. So I'm having issues dealing with this and I have acne scars and discoloration from picking my skin. I wouldn't say my skin is sensitive although it does tend to be on the red side and I have fair skin. I can handle most products without them burning me though. So I have all these products such as Murad chemical peel, Murad InvisiScar Resurfacing Treatment, Insta Natural glycolic peel, go-to exfoliating swipes, SATURDAY SKIN 10% glycolic acid pore control complex, Clean Skin Club VITAMIN C BRIGHTENING BOOSTER, SUNDAY RILEY A+ High dose retinoid serum and a bunch of other skin care products that I don't know if I should be using and if I do can I use them together and in what order. Right now my current routine (at night) is washing with Neutrogena salicylic acid acne wash and then using witch hazel and then Murad chemical peel followed by Sunday Riley retinoid followed by Clean Skin Club vitamin C brightening booster. My morning routine is usually just using either witch hazel or Garnier micellar cleansing water for oily skin followed by my skin primer and then I put on my foundation and the rest of my makeup. I guess what I'm asking is there anyone else out there who is suffering from extremely oily skin and also trying to combat the signs of aging as well as the signs acne scars? I just bought my first chemical peel Last Summer I'm pretty new to that and I'm very new to retinoids so I was also wondering can I use multiple products in one night that contain glycolic acid even if one is considered a "peel" and one is a "toner"? and is it okay for me to be using my Murad chemical peel every night with the retinoid serum?

Hi @Kayleelex! I have dry skin, especially during the winter, and my favorite toner to help combat dry skin is Lancôme Tonique Confort Re-Hydrating Comforting Toner with Acacia Honey 6.7 oz/ 200 mL. A lot of toners can feel like they're stripping my skin of its moisture, but this toner almost feels like a moisturizer - it's so soft and nourishing. It does what a toner should do (balance out your skin's pH levels, especially after cleansing) but with the added bonus of extra hydration. As for hyperpigmentation and large pores, it's obviously not specifically designed to combat those problems, but I do feel like using that toner has helped a lot with my skin's redness. My pores have gotten smaller, but I don't know if that was caused by using the toner in conjunction with other products, or just from the mask that I'm about to talk about in the next paragraph! If you do want to reduce the size of your pores, the best product recommendation I have for that is the innisfree Super Volcanic Clusters Pore Clearing Clay Mask. This is probably my favorite mask of all time since it actually VISIBLY REDUCES the size of my pores without stripping my skin's moisture (which some clay masks can do). It's also super affordable, at only $15 for 3.38 oz. (and it's a DENSE mask, so you don't need to use that much). So in conclusion, I think that the Lancôme Tonique Confort Re-Hydrating Comforting Toner with Acacia Honey 6.7 oz/ 200 mL will be your best bet at combatting dry skin and hyperpigmentation, and I think that the problem of large pores can be addressed by using the innisfree Super Volcanic Clusters Pore Clearing Clay Mask! I hope that this helps!

Hi @Baileynoble! I also have combination hair (my roots get greasy/oily sometimes, but my ends are dry, especially since I bleached my hair a couple months ago), so I hope that I can help! The Verb Ghost product line is, in fact, really great for combination hair! The signature product in Verb's Ghost line is their Verb Ghost Weightless Hair Oil, which has over 1,000 5-star reviews. The ingredients in the products help hydrate, smooth, and nourish hair, but they're all so lightweight that they won't make your hair too oily or heavy. Verb is also relatively affordable compared to other haircare product brands. I love Verb since the large majority of their products are $18, and their prices haven't changed in years. I really do like Moroccanoil Moroccanoil Treatment, but Moroccan Oil is a bit more expensive per oz., and it has a strong scent that not everyone likes. I've heard that Bumble and bumble Hairdresser’s Invisible Oil Mini is a good product too, but it is also more expensive per oz. than Verb's Ghost Oil. So in conclusion, I think that Verb Ghost products are affordable and effective, and I'd totally recommend them to people with combination hair like you and me!
