Ladies-face wash/toner/moisturizer recommendations!!!

Trying different products & not finding anything that isn't breaking out my face or making it look oily. Currently using No 7 from Shoppers Drug Mart but it doesn't seem to be working with my skin.  
What are products you love?

two farm kids

Have you tried the more natural face products from Two farm kids here in Brandon? They have 2 brands that have made my skin calmer and I rarely get breakouts anymore! The brands are Simon, and Earth Science!

Strange idea

But I recently ran out of my moisturizer, and by chance there was a bottle of Loreal men's moisturizer that we got in a kit. I was desperate so I tried it.....and I love it. I have skin that can get quite oily with most brands, and I find this stuff feels lighter on my skin and I do not get oily!! I been using it for a couple if weeks now.  
This particular stuff is not manly scented, has all the retinol and wrinkle stuff of most women's brands. I think the only downside is it doesn't have SPF in it.  
I am going to look into the rest if the line to see if they have cleanser products too next time I head out.

Oil cleansing method

You should google the oil cleansing method, it definitely made a difference for my skin! I know it sounds weird putting oil on your face, and everyone's skin isn't the same, but this really helped me out.

I'm a big fan of gel moisturizer for oily skin. I've tried the Vichy line from shoppers as well as from clinic and like them both.

I keep it simple

Cleanse with coconut oil (it works wonderfully...just don't do it in the shower or you'll slip and fall), tone with witch hazel, moisturize with Cetaphil spf 15. Works like damn!

Pure Anada &; Norwex

I use the Norwex cloths: one to remove your makeup & the facecloth to wash your face. No cleansing products - only water! Amazing & it really does remove your makeup! I use Pure Anada products: toner, anti aging serum, face cream, & their makeup products. All natural & made in Morden MB. PM me if you'd like more info. Been using this system for years & it leaves you with beautiful skin.

Mary Kay

I have super dry skin. Only thing that has worked for me is the botanicals set from Mary Kay.

Cytaphil Skin Care

Cytaphil is a very gentle skin care system. My son had to go on Accutane (for very bad acne) which really dries the skin out. I used Cytaphil both body wash and moisturizer. It really worked well and you can get at your local drugstore and very affordable.  
Myself I use Oil of Olay Toner and love it.

For cleansing I love the Olay for combination skin with witch hazel. There is a cleanser and a toner. I find this works great on my skin. For moisturizer I also use Olay with an SPF or Roc concentrated cream.

I use Fresh brand products they have a selection of items depending on your skin concerns. I order it online but I see you can get it at Sephora now too.

tea tree

My skin broke out terribly when I was pregnant. I started using the body shop's tea tree oil cleanser and toner and their seaweed gel moisturizer. It's amazing!

See a Professional

I've been through this process and it's a very frustrating and dangerous. If you're using the wrong product, you could be making it worse.  
If I were you, I'd go see Gabby at SKIN Clinic on Rosser. She is knowledgeable, professional, honest, and considerate of your budget. I've seen a few professionals about my skin, and Gabby was the first to actually look at my face and ask questions about my acne.  
She has a variety of high quality products there, as well as services you can't get anywhere else, but offers other ways to improve your skin too, from diet tips to breaking bad habits to budget-friendly products you can buy elsewhere. It's worth a try! 204-717-7546

Beauty School

Why not make and appointment there and have a facial? The person doing your facial will know what kind of skin you have and will recommend product to use that is appropriate for your skin type. The school is on 10th St H&CO Academy Esthetics. Usually they will have a two for one special on. 717-1700

newmember said "Where do you purchase witch hazel? "

You can get various scents of witch hazel at Two Farm Kids.  
My daughter says that the oil method is working well for her.  
It may make things worse in the first week as your skin adjusts. It is after that that you will see improvement.

I should add that almond oil & grapeseed oil are known to be the best oils for your skin.

Go to Pantages and meet with one of their trained skin care specialists. They carry a line called Eminence Organics and after 30 years of trying EVERYTHING on my skin this is finally the product that worked for me.  
I had tried everything from home party brands to store brands to using all natural things like coconut oil, etc and none of it worked long term for me.  
I use the "Calm Skin" cleanser, moisturizer and serum from Eminence and the anti-aging toner and my skin has honestly never felt better in my life (I can even leave the house without makeup and not feel self-conscious). Turns out all those chemicals that are in other brands react badly with my skin and the all natural oils were not enough to balance my skin.

It is going to take some time...

to find what works best for your skin.  
I have been dealing with problem skin for almost 40 years so I finally started going to a professional who knows about skin. I started going to see Cathy Woodmass at Simple Solutions in Brandon and she has helped me immensely.  
I have tried everything imaginable and didn't have any success. With Cathy's help I started out with chemical peels and finally I am on a skin regimen that works for me.  
In the morning I start by cleansing with Neostrata 2% salicylic acid gel cleanser. Then I use Proactiv's Complexion Hydrating Perfector.  
At night I cleanse with the same but then use Alyria's Body Resurfacing cream which is a 20% glycolic acid.  
I also started using retinol which both Cathy Woodmass and Dr. Sneath recommended. I use the Alyria 1% retinol every 3rd night. On the nights I use the retinol I use the Proactiv Hydrating Perfector because the retinol can make you peel so I don't like to use the glycolic acid after the retinol.  
I should have started using retinol in my 20's, it would have saved me a lot of grief. I can't believe the difference it has made, not only by helping to control the acne but also in the appearance and texture of my skin.  
Go see a professional because they will help you...don't wait as long as I did to get help.

I've been using the Korres line for a few years now and love it. I use their 3-in-1 cleanser milk which is super gentle (and non foaming) and I'm using the wild rose moisturizer. They do carry a pomegranate line that is designed for oily/combination skin, and have a gel-moisturizer. I tone with witch hazel. I buy it in the pharmacy section of any retail store. Korres also has a toner in their promegranate line for oily skin. Shoppers DrugMart carries the Korres line. Good luck!
