Ladies: what is a good night/day facial moisturizer line?

Asked by jordym84 (4742 points ) April 2nd, 2013

I have some leftover acne scars from when I was a teen so I’m looking for a product line that will not only help fade the scars but will also make my skin look brighter, healthier and more rejuvenated. Also, my eyes have been looking awfully tired despite the fact that I always get my requisite 8 hours of sleep.

I’ve heard good things about one of Burt’s Bees skin care lines as well as one of their eye creams, but I’m not exactly sure what the product line is called, so if someone here knows, I’d greatly appreciate it if you could share the following: 1) the line’s name, and 2) any feedback from your experience with their products. Also, can you please recommend other skin care product lines that have worked out well for you/products you swear by and also share why you love them so much?

Your help is greatly appreciated! Thank you in advance!

I like a tonor with glycolic acid like DDF 10% glycolic for the acne scars and I use Doterra moisturizer. It’s essential oils. Smells great too. Very light and won’t clog your pores. You can just use a little coconut oil instead if you want to save money. You can get it at the health food store or at many ordinary grocery chains. It might be called coconut butter but your body heat will turn it to liquid.

Hmm…. Why would only the ladeez know about lotion?
I would like to suggest this lotion made with royal jelly and honey. I discovered it at a farmer’s market down in Florida, but they ship throughout the U.S. On the pricey side (although, if you’re used to buying brand-name cosmetic products, probably not so much). A little bit goes a long way. It’s just a down home company that makes real good stuff, without the extra chemical crap of commercial cosmetics that get your body ‘addicted’ to their one particular product.

I have super dry diabetic skin and eczema, and this stuff heals me up in no time. It’s also good for sunburns and healing scars and tattoos! Also, supporting beekeepers is important.

Just read on the website that some of the ingredients are specifically targeted for wrinkles as well!

@bookish1 LOL I actually thought about it before posting and ended up going with “ladies” because I know that different companies use different formulas for skin care products for men and women. But anyway, thank you so much for the recommendation! I just placed an online order and can’t wait to get/try it. Price wise, it’s actually a whole lot cheaper than Burt’s Bees. I’ve been looking at some of their products based on consumers’ reviews and the one I was leaning towards is $25 for a 1.8oz jar, as opposed to your recommendation, which is only $20 for an 8oz jar. Thanks again!!

@Judi thank you also for the recommendation :)

@jordym84 : Oh, so cool, I’m glad you ordered some!! It’s a small company and I try to promote them. Makes a great gift as well. I’m going to put in an order myself today… Hope you enjoy it. I use it every day on my face and hands, and a jar lasts me half a year or more.

I’m a huge fan of coconut oil !
I hear that it’s great for healing too.

Skincare comes best from the inside: getting enough sleep, eating properly, ample water consumption, avoiding tobacco and alcohol. As for the outside, avoiding sun exposure is the key.

When it comes to fading scars, only time and/or laser surgery will help. A niece had a case of bad acne, and she only resolved it through treatment by a dermatoligist.

The only creams/treatments I’ve experienced in making a difference are:
1.) Shiseido products: incredibly expensive, but they reduced the size of pores and left facial skin feeling silky smooth.
2.) Proactive: much cheaper; elimated adult acne, and leaves skin feeling clean and soft.

What diet plan works best in your opinions? Not fad diets, I’ve tried them all. I’m thinking Weight Watchers, or diabetic food plan (I’m not diabetic tho), vegetarian, etc.
