More Serious Question, What Face Moisturizer Do You Use?

S.R. asks from Clinton, MO

I am in the market for a new moisturizer, one with SPF would be great. I used to use one from Clinique, but it was so thick and heavy it made me break out and my face still felt tight and dry most of the time. So now it's gone and I've been without for a few weeks.

My skin is very sensitive, it's nothing for me to have my entire face so dry that it is flakey all Fall and Winter long. I need something that truly moisturizes but won't leave my face feeling greasy or clog my pores.

So what do you all have for me!

I use Clinique and have faithfully since I was aobut 11.

They havwe products geared to specific skin types. I am not sensitive, however, the yellow dramatically different breaks me out every time, I can use the dramatically different gel with no problem.

I routinely use the Repairwear series now, specifically the Laser focus, intensive eye, youth surge day and youth surge night. The repairwear series day has SPF. I also use the Clinique sunscreen. When I feel especially dry, I add the pink moisture surge.

My daughter is 16 and she uses the Clinique line as well, especially the dramatically different gel.

Maybe if you talk to your consultant, you can get the right fit. Clinique stands by their product and if you are not happy, they will make it right.

Like I said, I have used this line, cleansers, makeup moisturizers since I was about 11. I am 49 and I easily pass for early 30's, now a lot of that is good genes but a lot of it is also a faithful skin routine morning and night plus using sunscreen.

Good luck!
