    Default Facial and Skin Moisturizers

    There was a recent thread in Off Course (I think, or maybe it was a T'giving OT thread) about heavy duty moisturizers for winter's dry, chapped hands. Based on recommendations in that thread plus products I had already tried, the clear winner for me was GRAMP LYFORD'S COUNTRY SALVE. I got it from drugstore.com. Not only does it moisturize well, but the effects are long lasting, and best of all, it feels, looks, and goes on like a lotion (not a greasy ointment) but works better than any ointment I've tried.

    For facial moisturizers, I have to put in a plug for the incredible LaRoche-Posay products. Seriously. Amazing. Really. Pore-minimizing, moisturizing, really makes your skin look tauter/much younger. Much younger. I'm not kidding here. I know everybody's skin is different, so YMMV, but I love these products. I use the Derm AOX serum every few days and the Effaclar M for my daily moisturizer. Both are a bit pricey, especially the Derm AOX, but I figure they're cheaper, and better, than a facelift!

    When the skin on my face or my lips is chapped I love Watkins Petro Carbo Salve. It is greasy (think Vaseline) so I put it on at night after I wash my face and sleep with it on, then wash off whatever remains the next morning. It works really well!

    I also really like Watkins brand body oil spray mists for moisturizing. I've been using the grapefruit one and I love it. Takes a second to dry but leaves your skin looking nice and smooth.

    After a recent run in with some sort of allergic reaction eczema thing, I ditched the Lancome for Aveeno.

    I have great skin through lack of 80s tanning and genes, so I'll stick with the non allergenic Aveeno which feels great and is way easier on the pocket book!

    I swear by two things....Argon Oil and Rose Hip Oil...won't clog your pores and keeps your skin super soft. I put a sunscreen lotion on as well when I go out. Best lip protection that I found is called Lip Savers...found it at Whole foods for 2.49. Chapstick with Tea Tree Oil.

    Another vote for the Aveeno products! Switched from Neutrogena products, and am glad I did!

    I like the Aveeno products, too. Most work very well. Though, for some reason, I had a problem with the under eye cream. No matter what I did, it seemed to migrate to my eyes, and when it got there, it hurt. I switched to Garnier under eye cream and that seems to be doing the trick.

    Migrating eye cream!? LOL!! I haven't used the eye cream yet, the breakout I had was on my lower and upper eyelids so I use the Aveeno Eczema Therapy there. I'm honestly afraid to try anything else right now! For a while I looked like I had been decked.
