    • I’ve been using Clarins since my 20’s. Now and then I use something else but find it very easy to head to the clarins counter and pick up products. Through the years I’ve moved from their basic skin care to the more intense products for aging skin. I received a sample of a serum a couple of weeks ago and I’m going to buy this product next time I’m at the mall. It’s a serum that is so light on my skin it feels like nothing but my skin feels so good I can even go without my day moisture lotion.

      I think I’m sold on serums.

    • Funny you should ask that today. I’ve been thinking for the last couple of month how I would like to make my own cream. Of course I have no idea how to do that, but how difficult could it be?

      So after doing some research, last night I made the cream. It’s nice and heavy how I now like my creams to be for the night, my skin has gotten dry over the years.  

      I used serums before, but now I think for me creams is what I will be buying. estatic

    • I’m with Angelcart. But I also use a vitamin c serum. It’s all part of the Isadermix skin care system. Since I cleanse on the inside (which shows up very nicely on the outside), it just plain makes sense to me to load ALL my skin (the largest organ) with the something naturally free of toxins. That means everything – from my lotion, & soap. It all gets absorbed into the skin and directly into the body I’ve been cleansing. So in order to achieve optimal health and wellness, I make sure to take care of my outside, as well as my inside. People always ask about my skin. I love it! estatic

    • I just started using a serum, but I use both.  The serum is an Avon product that is not greasy at all.  In fact, some days I apply the cream over the serum to add moisture, even though my skin is not dry.  The Avon product leaves my skin feeling like velvet.  Sorta pricey by my standards, but very nice.  (No, I don’t sell Avon, but I am very happy to have discovered the product.)

    • I stumbled upon Dead Sea Minerals and bought a few of their products along with using the Murad system...since using these, my skin has felt cleaner and smoother as I deal with combination skin with some breakouts..so a cream based moisturizer is not good for me, a light lotion is better and of course, the eye moisturizing lotion at night is a must.

    • Serums are great because you can layer them under other products (like a moisturizer or a sunscreen) and it’s a great way to deliver an ‘active’ topical product like Vitamin C or retinol. All skin types can use them. Creams are wonderful if you have normal to dry skin as they can often contain moisturizing ingredients as well.  

      I use both and change things up depending on the season and how my skin is feeling at the time.
