Karen, I've never known anyone else who's ever used Albolene! I used it years ago, but I've never heard about anyone else using it for their face!

Hi Envymi -lol... yeah I've been using Albolene ever since I was about 17 yrs. old - I love it and wouldn't trade it for the world....For me,its the best, ~ it seems like the makeup melts off your face as you tissue off. I guess that's why they called it a liquifying cleanser...duh....lol
I luv it !!!

Hi all, This is my first post. I had problem skin for years and still breakout with the use of a lot of products but what FIXED my skin was Paula's Choice. I use the gentle soap cleanser, the salicylic lotion in the lowest amount and then the 2.5% blemish fighting solution every night. Then in the morning I use cetaphil moisturizer with spf 15. But I also have probelms depending on which foundation I use.....it seems I breakout to a lot of foundations with sunscreen, the best one I have found that doesn't irritate my skin is NARS oil free. THIS ROUTINE SERIOUSLY FIXED MY SKIN ALONG WITH CHANGING FOUNDATIONS!!! I had been going to a dermatologist that had only made my skin worse!!

If you need more specific names of the face products to find them let me know.......they are not in front of me at the moment.

the one thing that wasn't on the list was lip balm. i'm using a product called sue's amazing lip stuff. it contains hemp seed oil, avocado oil, beeswax and peppermint oil. a good lip balm is a must for me. i don't wear lip pencil, lipstick or even gloss without it.
