Yes,I admit it..Not only am I computer challenged but I'm not really skincare savvy either.. I'm having some skin care custom tweaked for my picky skin..The lotion I'm getting normally contains A,B,C,E and CoQ-10..I can also have extras added like..Greentea(would this be over kill w/ the other vitamins)Chamomile,Glycerine and Aloe.Was thinking of having it made with grapeseed oil as I can't use Jojoba and having Green tea,Chamomile and Aloe added..Anythoughts?

I am NOT qualified to answer this question! My only concern would be putting too much of a good thing in the mix. I hope someone can answer your question better than I. Sorry!

Also, A can be very irritating - combined with C- you could definitely show some irritation (if the concentrations are being added to the degree where the ingredient is effective). Even though we are all wanting that one "does it all" face cream....it's probably just not possible. If you do just one good thing for your skin every day...just my opinion...use sunscreen! LOL

Hi..Very helpful info..I've since decided that I'll be omitting the Vit.C and maybe ask for the tiniest hint of A..I know I'll never find that magic bullet but hopefully this will be close enough
Now my next quest is an eye cream..Always wanting more..LOL
