My skin is uber-sensetive so I've always paid very close attention to what I put on my face. For my splurge, the original Creme de la Mer is skin-pampering luxury. I've tried dozens of moisturizers over the years and I always go back to this tried and true miracle cream. For my save, I use Cetaphil cleanser with my Clarisonic to ensure I'm getting all the bacteria and dirt off of my skin first. If you're going to spend money on the good stuff, make sure to scrub off all the dead skin and grim first so that all of the anti-aging ingredients soak in!
First, it's gotta work. I'm all about the science, so if it's a clinically proven product, I'm more likely to budget for it. Second, ease of use is really important. My splurge is iS CLINICAL Active Serum, I started getting cystic acne in my early 30's and this is the only product that cleared up my hormonal skin, reduced early signs of aging and didn't dry me out. It absorbs immediately so I can put makeup on right over it and get out the door. For my save, Cetaphil is also my number one cleanser... It's super gentle and fragrance free so everyone in my family can use it.
