A few days ago a thread popped up in GNG in which someone had gotten some free product from La Roche Posay. That's the same company who makes the moisturizer for oily skin that ATL Peach Girl and I use. So, I thought I'd start a thread on the items you use that you'd recommend to someone else with similar skin or similar skin "issues".

I have oily skin.
The two moisturizers I've found that work well to control the oil and help my makeup stick are:
La Roche Posay Effaclar Mattifying Moisturizer:
http://www.laroche-posay.us/_us/_en/consumer/catalog/ByType/Oily/effaclar-m-daily-mattifying-moisturizer.htm
and Mary Kay Oil Control Lotion #3

I also use Urban Decay Eyeshadow Primer Potion:

And thanks to having eyes that can't keep eyeliner on, I also use
Urban Decay Glide on Eye Pencil:
http://www.urbandecay.com/24-7-glide-on-eye-pencil/122,default,pd.html?start=1&cgid=9999&prefn1=isBestSeller&prefv1=true

For Raw hands during winter (from frequent handwashing)
L'Occitane Shea Butter Hand Creme:

I have a problem with psoriasis and this seems to help more than the prescription little tube that costs a $125.00...

http://usa.loccitane.com/FO/shea-butter-hand-cream.htm Thanks for turning me onto that LaRoche Posay stuff....I am still on my first bottle.....but I am fixin' to order another. I can certainly tell a difference when I do NOT wear the stuff.......grease city!! The stuff slows me down greatly.

The up-side to having greasy skin is that I have NO wrinkles. Folks at my 30th class reunion said "we know you graduated with us, but how come you have NO wrinkles like the rest of us"?? bwhahahahhaahhaa!! The boon of greasy skin DOES have a up-side!!!!

I use MAC kohl "smolder" color for eye liner.......it is about the same price as that Urban Decay stuff....but that stuff looks like something I would be interested.

I find also to powder your whole eye with pressed powder to keep the greasies from happening around the eyes.......then apply your shadow, liner and mascara as usual. The pressed powder keeps the oil at bay somewhat.

Yep. Very few wrinkles here too. The security guard here at work thought I was my friend Laurie's DAUGHTER. Laurie is about 8 years older than me. Needless to say, she wasn't around when he said that so I'm not telling her or she'd be pissed.

Pressed powder alone isn't enough to keep mine from creasing after a full day. That Urban Decay eye primer potion is great stuff! It even comes in three formulas--one is a flat, one is a champagne colored, and one is gold-based. Brittany on www.clumpsofmascara.com turned me on to it. She is black and has oily skin like we do so many of the products she recommends also work well for me.

Baby wipes!!! Huggies with aloe or natural or whatever is in stock when I buy. I keep them by the bed for when I don't have it in me to wash my face at night. I keep them with my mailling stuff because some of the metals are nasty with oils and I need to wipe my hands often. I'll even use them to clean brake dust off wheels.

Alcohol wipes and anti-bac gel. I learned from paramedics while working in the ER that the stuff is great for not only disinfecting but it will clean chili off a white shirt.

When I used to wear liquid foundation I used blocks of pressed rice powder. It only comes in lighter shades and it absorbs oil like nothing else I've ever used. I'd get it at Sally's.

Crisco. My doctor told me to use it on my feet when they were so dry they cracked and bled.

Here's a newbie I just found that I love:
Clinique Bottom Lash Mascara

http://www.sephora.com/browse/product.jhtml?id=P279510

The little bitty brush lets you cover your lashes without getting mascara all over your under eye.

I use a lotion called "Kiss My Face". It's great stuff. Non-greasy good moisture.

I used that stuff when I was married. I couldn't buy it in the city I moved to (it's too small).

I haven't ever seen it at a regular store. I buy it at Whole Foods or a co-op.
Do you want me to send you some?

The only place I know of that carries it around here (and I've not been in there lately to shop) is BeautyMax in Germantown. When I lived in Cordova, Germantown was a 5 minute ride up the road, but from where I am now, it's like an hour away.

I just order La Roche Posay online. It's done well at keeping me "degreased". :supergrin:

Mephisto shoes. They aren't the prettiest thing in the world, but if you're going to be on your feet for a day, trust me, they're magic. Their Sano like will make you feel like you're walking on air, and they last forever.

No one here may be able to use this product, but I'm going to go ahead and recommend it because personally I'm glad I found it.

I am expecting and also have a belly button piercing. I originally thought I'd have no choice but to lose the latter because of the former. Did some research and found these:
www.pregnancypiercings.com

I JUST put it in today, and it is so much more comfortable than the metal "stud" I had in. They even carry a plastic O-ring that supposedly allows you to keep it in even if you need a C-section (or if you're allergic to metal). I'm planning on asking my OB whether or not there's any truth to that, and I would advise doing the same if you go that route...

I have the piercing too and have been informed by someone here who got pregnant (twice) that if you don't keep something there it will heal up and you'll have to be re-pierced. My friend here said hers completely grew together during baby #1.

Good call there PC!
