I cant handle this anymore.
I bought the la roche posay effaclar a.i.
Its my last chance.
I have tried everything.
Recommend to me some good products THAT WORKED for you.
And I can find them online (international shipping because I live in Greece)
No matter the price.
Im desperate.
I have combo to oily skin...some breakouts on my chin and jaw area lately ,redness from old spots,oilyness of course mostly on the t zone (forehead) and large pores.
Im sick of it.
Makeup is not the case for me.

Have you tried Clinique? Their 3-step system? Or clarins skin care products for oily skin? Do you have those lines available in Greece? I used both when I had acne when I was younger and they made a huge difference in my skin. I liked both brands but I think I preferred Clarins for their scent. The key is not to over dry the skin or it will make things worse. Only wash it once a day and other times use wipes to cleanse if you need to. Neutrogena makeup removed wipes are the best. I have a sensitive combo skin and have not gotten breakouts from the Neutrogena wipes.

I also recommend Clinique, in particular the Anti-blemish Solution version. 

 

That's one of the foundations i'm currently using at the moment for similar reasons as yourself and find it great for acne in many ways.

 

It gives great coverage over acne almost full but you can build it up by layering it if required, its lightweight and is supposed to have certain properties (from what they claim) within it to help prevent further breakouts and is also great for oily/combo skin.. wouldn't say it's to good for dry skin types though like myself which is why i'm trying other brands, so all in all i'd say its all around great for what your needing it for as it worked for me and still does, just a pitty my skins dry.

 

Hope this helps also.

Aah i see!

 

Hmm.. for skin care id recommend using a AHA peel product (no more than around 10% IMO) or a good exfoliator like the micro-dermabrasion version as part of your weekly routine. Lets say no more than twice a week at the most as over using them can damage the skin.

 

These are great for helping to kill the bacteria that builds on your skin (which causes acne) and also provides a better skin texture.

 

Ones i've previously and currently use/d are ones like No.7 Micro-Dermabrasion etc

Yes all three 😊 You might want to go with the regular moisturizer though instead of the oily skin version in the screenshot because the regular moisturizer is better and helps to prevent over drying but the moisturizing gel is good too. 😊

Edited to add Korres has a peel that might be a good one. The line is usually good. An exfoliator would be a good one too. Clinique has a 7 day scrub but korres has exfoliators too.,

Here is the link to the Korres peel. It's expensive though. :( Maybe cheaper there where you live since this is a brand from Greece?

Caudalie has a peel too. Can you get the french Caudalie brand there? It's a good brand.

 

Here is the link to the peel

and they have a great detox mask for clearing pores

Here is a link to Caudalie's website (this is a link to the US version but they have an international one too)

Btw 16 euros is 17.7 us dollars.
The glycolic peel mask by caudalie is 13 euros for 75 ml. Which is again a fair price.

The mask is 13 also.

Its like bentonite clay? Cause i use this natural 2 a week.

I use pure clay with dry yeast and water 2 times a week already.
I also use turmeric mask with plain water.
But... i wasnt so consistent.
I have to do sth drastic to see a good result.
So i need at least one strong product.

Is bha more suitable for me than aha??
I think ahas are for wrinkles and fight the surface of the skin.
The bha is actually salicylic. Hm i dont know.
Bha is more strong and im afraid i have sensitive skin.
But as long as its 5 or 10 percent i think i can hamdle it better.
I dont know it will be the first timw using aha and bha.
I have no experience with them.
