Everyone's Different.

Amen to that sister!!

Skin care products are such a personal thing. What works for one, doesn't necessarily work for another

At the moment, this works for me and I love it.

I have a friend who uses plain old soap and water to wash her face and then Vitamin E cream as a moisturiser, another uses L'Oreal products, while another uses the Dove Cleansing bar and then moisturises with watered down sorbolene cream.

Personally I'm not a huge fan of sorbolene, not even as a moisturiser on my legs. I just don't like the way it feels, but hey. Each to their own right?

Whatever works for you is my motto

Up until a few years ago I used just two products on my face....apart from the odd occasion when I wore make-up. But this is what I used each and every day for over 20 years.

But relying on any particular product for that length of time can be a BIG mistake. It can lead to tears. It can make you complacent. I know. I've been there.

Unfortunately, Blackmores decided to stop making it's Marshmallow Cleansing Bar, which in fact, did make me cry. I rang them. I pleaded with them. It made no difference.

What to do? I enlisted the help of my friends, that's what I did, and got them started on the great Marshmallow Cleansing Bar Hunt where they scoured every Pharmacy and supermarket that once stocked the stuff. Unfortunately, their search was fruitless.

After realising I was going to have to find something else as my daily cleansing ritual, I tried other cleansing bars and cream cleansers, but they didn't cut it. I also tried these, just in case Clinique decided to stop making the most popular moisturiser on the planet. Just in case.

Then I saw some ads for SKII and thought I'd give it a try...I mean, hey, Cate Blanchet wouldn't lie to me would she?

No, she wouldn't.

It's been great! I bought my first lot, a travel pack, during a stopover in Singapore a few years back and it gave me the chance to trial a few of their products to make sure it was the right fit for me.

It was and I've been using it ever since ! !

What products have you relied on that have disappeared?...and what makes you feel and look good?
