    hi hope,

    Clinique products are very good. I use the clinique soap cause I have
    acne. It really cleared my skin free of acne. Other clinique items are
    also good. If you ask in the counter at the mall the ladies will usually
    tell you which is suitable for your skin, depending on what is your
    skin type and what products you want to use it for. I also use a clinique
    cleanser.
    Hope this helped you!!

    Hi Hope,

    Right now, the best product out for daily use, especially if you have acne is 'Bio Therm.' :goodidea: It's slightly a bit more expensive than clinique but works better I think. Definitely recommend this. I had really bad acne and this has helped me alot, even with dry skin!

    Hope this helps,
    Vish xx

    I have a sensitive skin and so never ventured into artificial creams and cosmetics. I use shahnaz hussain products...
    although expensive, it seems worth it

    Hi! Its a very difficult question to answer.But Vichy though expensive has worked well for pigmentation and skin brightening. I use a combination of both expensive and in-expensive products.I've a very very sensitive and acne prone skin and right from Outliners to lipsticks to concelers,I've tried all possible brands.In some cases,cheaper brands are as good as the expensive brands.Some times I feel its the label which makes a difference in the price.Given a choice between revlon eye pencil(Twist eye pencil) and Lakme,Lakme is cheaper.I feel both the brands which I've tried are equally good.Try and see the difference.That's the only way-Asha:2thumbsup:
