Normal to Combination in summer. Drier in Winter

Yes. I’m a big fan of chemical exfoliating pads and toners. i hate the feel of something gloppy or stinging on my face. I do some physical exfoliation in the shower.
What moisturizer do you use?
For daytime I use mostly serums. Then whatever I’m testing slapped on top.

Not on my face. I do have them on my chest
Do you use eye cream?
Yes. But I usually use a face cream that’s richer than what I can use on my face.

I have had acne prone skin. It’s better now that I’m older. I still get get a zit about once a month. Mostly from falling asleep with makeup on (yeah ,I know)
Did you ever have to use Pro-activ?
Yep. I hated it. It made my skin worse Plus its not cruelty free.
