what skincare line do you use?

What skincare line do you ladies use? I know there are certain ingredients like retinol we can't have and I am trying to figure out what to use. I use philosophy s purity cleanser and hope in a jar and olay regenerist night cream right now.

Re: what skincare line do you use?

  • I use Dove Bar and nothing else.

  • I use mostly Origins products. They are certified organic and use only "natural" ingredients. Truthfully though I used this long before I got pregnant and wouldn't change my makeup/skincare routine just because I was pregnant. I still use a face wash that has salicylic acid in it and I'm comfortable with that. I think as long as you aren't eating it most skincare products are safe to continue using in moderation.

  • I only knew of the Salic acid or whatever the typical acne ingredient is. I am on clinique's line. what I usually use (I used to use proactive once a month or so.) 

    My friend keeps showing me all these stupid expensive products that I "simply have to try" but I can't see paying $25 for a .5 oz bottle.

  • I just purchased Belli face wash at buy Buy Baby because I'm breaking out and there's not much that is safe to use. I just started using it yesterday, I sure hope it helps.
  • I went a couple of days without washing my face (I was always running late when getting ready lol) and noticed my skin actually looked clearer, gone a week now and my face looks awesome. I guess pregnancy was my secret to clear skin??? Lol :D

  • I switched to the oil cleansing method with a dab of tea tree oil at night on tough spots. Hormone acne is a biiatch.

  • The OCM rocks! Which oils do you use? My skin is freakishly dry so I use olive oil & vitamin e mostly. No snark meant at all, but be careful putting tea tree oil directly on your skin, it's very powerful & normally best if used with a carrier oil... Or you could add a couple drops to your face washing oil mix?

  • I use various, including DeVita, Aubrey, kiehl's... Whatever product u use, u should look it up on ewg.org/skindeep. It tells u the toxicity level of health and beauty products, including reproductive toxicity.

    I use castor oil and sunflower seed oil. The sunflower seed is supposed to help with acne. I know it is, lol. I literally just put a drop on my finger and spread it all over my trouble zones. It works!

  • I've been putting coconut oil all over my face but after washing it with a gentle cleanser, are those of you doing the OCM not using any wash at all? Just the oil? How do you do it?

  • My doctor said using my normal stuff with salicyclic acid is fine as long as I'm. O eating it ;) I use neutrogena acne wash and it works so well for me with clean and clear's acne moisturizer at night and aveeno's simply radiant moisturizer during the day

  • I use BareMinerals! I use the deep cleansing foam with the combination moisturizer. I've been using this even before I got pregnant and it's great not to have to switch now that I am--their products are all natural so they won't hurt you or baby, and there aren't any "bad" ingredients. Plus, you can choose a regimen that best fits your current skincare needs. :)

    Yeah I only use oil. I wet my face with warm water, put some oil on my fingers and massage it in like you would a cleanser, rinse and pat dry. Easy peasy.
