My point here is for you to find out if your skin has changed and what you will do for it. I finally had a facial at Mario Badescu. A basic, deep cleansing facial. I got the official analysis that my skin is now "dry and sensitive" with some broken capillaries around my nose, that I have good elasticity and good pores. I thought the skin under my eyes was really dry but she said they were good. I wanted to know the best way to really clean my face now, to get a moisturizer, an exfoliator and a mask.
I wanted their products because they are made with good things, well priced and I wanted non-commercial products tailored for my needs. I've been doing one thing right before this - switching to a cream cleanser instead of a gel cleanser.
The products are lovely. You can buy them online or in some stores. I'd find out what kind of skin you have so you can get the right ones. I was so done with buying stuff that was recommended - and was doing nothing! Even the free fancy pharmaceutical stuff was a bust.
A few tips from them - a serum moisturizes the skin 10 times more than a moisturizer. Put that on first. For mature skin they recommend that you use your finger tips to massage in the cleanser and just rinse off. If you want to use a Clarisonic type of machine, use it once or twice per week. Those are better for young skin, exfoliating and getting the moisturizer to absorb in.
The cleanser is a dream. The honey almond scrub is a huge 4 oz jar and was 15 dollars.
They also believe in toner - one that suits your skin and will help improve your skin.
The products remind me of Kiehl's but I never felt like Kiehl's did the job.
