Price doesn’t always dictate quality in skin care, cosmetics and hair care, you can get great skin care in a drugstore or in a high-quality cosmetics store.  I have acne-prone skin, I have used most of the high-quality and drugstore quality skin care products and I am forty-years-old so my skin has changed over the years and I found that as long as you’re using good quality products your skin will look young and healthy for the rest of your life.  It is a trial and error process if you don’t have someone in your life who has used many different products to figure out what works best.  Everybody’s skin is different but you should have enough people in your life that can lead you to works best for your skin.  Don’t always assume that the people in the drugs stores, cosmetics stores and department stores know what they’re talking about.  I didn’t have anyone in my life to teach me about skin care, cosmetics and hair care so I had to teach myself so I hope that for those of you who don’t have help will find my blog and will learn from me.

Let’s talk drugstore skin care:  Clearasil has come a long way from when used it so I believe that it is a better product now;  I have used Neutrogena and it worked okay for me;  I have also used Aveeno and it worked well for a while but the price was too high for what I feel is an okay product;  for price and quality I really Garnier, my children use it, my nieces use it, it controls acne, smells really good and keeps your skin looking fresh and healthy.

Department store skin care:  I haven’t used any department store skin care products because they’re prices are too high and a lot of them don’t carry skin care for acne-prone skin, but I learned recently that Clinique has a skin care line and it’s affordable so I’m going to try it and see how well it works.

What I have been using for the last couple of years is a cleanser from a store called Skoah in a mall close to my home.  It contains plant extracts as well as seaweed so it cleans really well and smells wonderful.  I use it in the shower and not everyday because I don’t like water running down my arm when I’m in the bathroom over the sink and it doesn’t remover eye-makeup as well as my quick clean.  My moisturizer is made my Pur Minerals which is a cosmetics company that uses only minerals in their make-up and skin care and it is wonderful.  It is called mineral moisture complex, smells great, is gentle on your skin and keeps it looking healthy and clean and fresh.  Minerals are the best thing for your skin because they come from the earth, mineral make-up from a reputable company don’t use any fillers or chemicals in their products so it is the best thing for your skin.  I use a cleaning product by Pur Minerals called mineral quick clean between the days that I shower to remove my make-up because it is quick, you just apply to your face and then use a wet face cloth or even a kleenex and it removes everything including your mascara.

I hope I have helped you a little in your quest for the best skin care products for your skin type.  The beauty of mineral skin care is that it works for every skin type because there is nothing added to it except for minerals and it’s pure.  One thing that I did when researching for my blog was that I went to the different companies’ web sites and looked at the ingredients in all their products.  If there is something that I didn’t recognize or the product has lead in it, I won’t touch it.
