I’m new here and I need help!
I’ve done so much research on ingredients, tested loads of products, gone overboard and made my skin worse at times. I want so badly to buy a full product line from a brand and stick with it. I don’t have an unlimited budget, but I’d really invest in something if I could make a stinking decision! Is there a thread somewhere in here where we discuss the merits of brands’ full product lines??
What are the brands/lines you think, as a whole, would give someone a solid foundation?
About my skin, if you’re willing to spend the time:
31F, type 2 complexion, combination/oily, dark undereyes, overall texture issues and hyperpigmentation from a long history of acne (hormonal and sporadic now, but cystic and constant in my teens and twenties).
I’m looking to include (primarily) brightening, anti-aging ingredients. Clean/ish! I prefer legible ingredient lists, but I concede pretty easily when something really works.
My skin is tough and has responded especially well to enzyme cleansers/masks (rice bran, papaya, etc), acids (especially lactic), and it loves a soothing night oil.submitted by /u/mkarmstr
