I use Elysee, and I add retin-a at night. I think Ole hendrickson makes good stuff, Perricone (although some smell SO BAD there's no way I can use them no matter what they might do), Murad, Exuviance... kind of depends on what your major skin care concerns are. Korres makes wonderful all natural products, especially the wild rose line.
I started using Korres last week. I love it. I feel like I should knock on wood, lol, but I havent gotten a single zit since I started using it which is a huge deal because everytime I try something new my skin reacts. I have been dealing with chin breakouts since I went back to work and I feel like I FINALLY found something that is making it better and not worse. I am using the milk proteins cleanser and the wild rose cream. I dont use the cream everyday, I have been rotating between that and rosehip seed oil.
