Products I Love - Anti- Aging Moisturizers

I haven't done a post on the skin/anti-aging products I love in awhile so I decided to do one today.  I love products and have way too many at any given time, but these four products are the ones I always like to have on hand. All of them can be put on throughout the day, after working out, after showering, under your regular make up products and just for general touch ups and they are great for combination or oily skin types like mine.

I love this Dr. Brandt pores no more product because it has tea tree oil in it which feels very refreshing when I put it on. Also, it has a mattifier in it which keeps my oily skin in control. I like to put this on in the afternoon or evening after my work outs. While I don't think this is considered an actual moisturizer, it does make my skin feel very smooth and soft. In the morning I like to put on another mattifier by Murad. I always keep one of these in my gym bag as well.

This Per-fekt is a great product. I use it over my base or alone when I work out. It is moisturizing without being oily, makes my skin feel silky smooth and comes in different tints. It has antioxidants in it for added anti aging benefits.

This DDF Wrinkle Resist Pore minimizer product is also a moisturizer/anti wrinkle product that is good for combination skin. I like to put it on in the morning under my sunscreen and base.

Another product I really like is the Cindy Crawford natural beauty day cream. My running friend gave me a bottle to try and I really love it. It's the most moisturizing out of the these four products without causing me to have breakouts and has a sun screen in it. Since this is a product you have to purchase exclusively online and get the entire program auto shipped to you every month, I don't know if I am going to continue or not even though I like both the day cream and the night cream.

I usually use Oil of Olay Regenerist at night over my Retin A product and it seems to work really well and I can easily purchase it at any drug store or grocery store any time I need it without auto ship so I may switch back to it after I finish the Cindy Crawford meaningful beauty products. If you are looking for something more moisturizing than the above products, I recommend the Cindy Crawford meaningful beauty products.

All of the products below are good for combo/oily skin. None of them cause my face to break, this is still a problem for me despite being in my forties. I have to find products that are moisturizing and anti wrinkle without being too oily or I will get nasty break outs. I run and bike so I'm sweaty a lot! These products are good for sweaty people.

I also like products that are easy to use as a touch up after I work out and make my skin look and feel great. These are perfect for people like me who have an active lifestyle. Some products come and go, but these have been a staple for me for several years now.

Highly recommended!

What are some of your staple products that you love?

Happy Monday!


  1. I recently discovered Creme de la Mer. It is truly amazing. I thought it would be too heavy for my oily/combo skin but applied correctly, it's not. The price is a bit scary but it lasts a long time and is WORTH. IT. :)
    I still have some of the Per-fekt that you recommended to me once although I rarely use it. Great product but I have an aversion to putting multiple products on my skin because of the feel.
    Lately, I only use Creme de la Mer, Chanel SPF 50 (which doubles as a primer) and on occasion, I'll apply Chanel Double Perfection Lumiere, a foundation powder.
    For cleansing, did you every try Clarisonic? I can't be without mine! It will keep your pores clear.

    1. I have thought about trying crem de la mer. I hear it is a great produce. Didn't know if it would ve too heavy for me though. I have been using Clarisonic for about three or four years now and LOVE it. I also ccasionally use a green tea scrub that I love. I'm still using some Obage products - the retin A and the night cream and the cleanser. I don't use the different products all at once. I switch up and use some in the morning, some after morning workout, some in the afternoon/evening and then some before bed. I'm still in search of the perfect products.

    2. product not produce and be not ve. Uggh!

  2. Creme de la Mer also comes in other formulations, such as a lightweight gel. And they are great about giving samples - well, Nordstrom's is, I don't know about the other department stores. I've tried the gel one and prefer the original but I'm not as oily as I used to be - that's either due to getting older, or living in a less humid climate now.

  3. Why people still use to read news papers when in this technological globe the whole thing is accessible on net?
