I am a bit surprised to see that so far no one used Chemical or Acid peels.  Any reason why?

Personally, it would be too much for my skin, and I can't afford the down time of walking around with lobster face.

I've had a chemical peel once and it really didn't do much for me. I think when you use an AHA and/or BHA daily, the chemical peels don't make a drastic difference. Now, a TCA peel or Obagi Blue Peel is another story. Those are very strong and leave you red and peeling for days. I don't care to go through that.

I can't find my answer in the poll but it's Renovage.
I use a Firming Moisturizer by Silk Naturals ( MMU company) and it contains Renovage.  must say, it helps me.. uneven skin, lines, definately less noticable.
So for the moment, I am sticking with this moisturizer. I like it a lot!

Even though I use retin a and BHA, my face occasionally gets to needing a good acid treatment.  I like the lactic acid from MUAC - just kind of freshens your skin without any downtime. I don't do well with glycolic.  I had a TCA peel - 18% I think - at derm.  Almost two weeks of downtime!  I now use TCA, 12%, from MUAC as a spot treatment.

Just really starting to pay more attention to my skincare.

I have used Retin A for years for jawline acne, but continue to use it for anti aging purposes and the fact that my freckles have faded almost completely.

I started using Kiehl's Powerful-Strength Line-Reducing Concentrate (with 10.5% Vit C).  It is my first Vit C product and I saw very nice results within the first week.  My forehead looks smoother and has a glow.  It works excellent as a primer, too.  1 sample packet lasted me over a week, which is good b/c I hate shelling $$$ for bunk SC.

I'm thinking of getting PC's BHA next, but the reviews seems all over the place- some love it, some say it made their skin a war zone ???

Just started using Replenix Cream (with Green Tea).  I think it has helped my seborrhic dermatitis and redness.  I am also testing Glycolix Elite Ultra Lite Facial Cream and Citrix Antioxidant Sunscreen SPF 30.

I just started experimenting with OCM and seeing what combos of oil work best for me.  I really enjoy sitting down and massaging it into my face- relaxing.  I tried to talk DH into doing it for me but that was a no-go :-[

I loved it.

My skin did erupt a bit after I started using acids (and I don't usually get acne, except maybe a single pimple once or twice a year), but I have always attributed the zitness to a new product bringing buried "treasure" to the surface.

I have no science to back that up. :D  But it does seem to happen to me when I change skincare that targets pores/acne.

lol.. then about 90% of all products do this to me.  I must be a treasure chest.

BHA works well for me.  I have one from Bare Escentuals that I'm using right now.  Paula's Choice also works really well

Sunscreen: I use daily.  CeraVe AM and Elta MD

Tried a sample of Philosophy Anti-aging serum and it felt really good.  It has peptides.  It will probably be my next purchase.
