I am in need of something to put on my face. Like a cold cream or something.. I get dry patches on my face all the time. It will get worse in the summer time. I don't use anything but lip gloss or vaseline for my lips. Bt,it is high time I start looking for a face cream.

I am not a fan of cosmetics so I don't spend much on it. I just wear moisturizer cream and yes, my favorite stuff vaseline for my lip. I don't even know how to wear make up so I don't need to buy those extra things I guess. I can see the different when we spend money on such stuff and time when we are not spend for it.(^^)

Not on your life. I don't own any makeup at all. Think of the phrase "makeup." to make up, to make believe. Why? Why would I want to make myself into something I'm not, and change my appearance? If the world isn't impressed with me as I am, then it can kiss MyAss.

I hardly spend anything on make-up. I can't remember the last time I actually bought make-up. It's just not something that's really important to me. I don't feel like I need to wear make-up, or buy make-up, or anything like that.

I don't spend much with cosmetics because I don't like putting make up. I ma just happy with a face powder, a lip gloss/balm and that's it. Have you tried using almond oil? It is a lighter oil with different nutrients than can be applied on dry spots. I even used it on my son's scar from burns and it worked wonder.

I don't spend much on cosmetics but I have a particular brand I'm using and that I stick on it. AT least I have to spend on my cosmetics every 3 months. My lipstick will last at least 3-4 months depends how often I used them. I usually pamper my skin in the night before bed that is when my face is away from polluted environment.I toned it up and apply a night advance recovery cream and thats it.A mask twice a week. And in the morning I just a apply an Extra Brightening Moisture cream contains SPF 15 that block the both UV/UVB rays. For most every 3 months I have to shopped for my cosmetics.

I'm allergic to cosmetics. I don't use any. But I like eye liner. When I spend money on buying cosmetics and something expensive, I feel like I'm wasting a lot of money. I try to keep my face clean and free of dust and easy to do too, i.e, clean my face with milk. It's very good.

I really haven't been wearing make-up in a while. I had a reaction to some "mainstream" eye makeup, and that was pretty much the end of it. I've been looking for some good, cruelty-free, eco-friendly makeup (just something to add a little sparkle on evenings out), but I haven't yet found what I'm looking for.

there are many remedies for dry patches,you are try some organic moisturizer ,well i believe in natural looks but sometimes do spend on makeup for general skin treatments.excessive use pf makeup sometime takes away your natural charm and you end up having a painted face.

I don't use cosmetics. I only use sunblock and loose powder for my face. I get allergic reactions and most of the time, pimples grow all over my face after putting some make up on. I use lip balm when the weather is dry and toner for my face if I get exposed to extremely dusty condition. =)

Hi, I use Ahava Lotion. Ahava Lotion is terrific and moisturizes my skin really well. You can buy it online or in a store. You may want to give it a try. Have a great day!

I spend a lot on cosmetics even though I don't want to. I feel like I have to. I'm always so drawn to makeups and beauty products. I spend on cosmetics more than on clothes and food.

I don't wear very much make up, so I suppose that I don't spend as much money as a lot of people do on them. However, one of the things that I always have to have no matter what is a good moisturiser. I have to be able to put some on my hands in the morning when I get up, and then before I go to sleep at night, otherwise my hands are too dry during the course of the day. I spend a fair amount of money on this, as I believe that if something is worth buying, you should try your best to buy the best brand of that product that you possibly can.

I don't spend a lot on cosmetics at all. Maybe twice a year I wear make up, I do keep Burt's Bees lip balm on hand for dry lips. Face cream is the most frustrating product for me. I have normal to oily skin and face cream makes my skin super oily very quickly. I was using Dove face cream and that was discontinued. Oil of Olay is way too heavy for my skin type and I feel like I have a layer of goo on face face - especially during the humid summer. Right now I'm using Burt's Bees Day lotion with SPF 15. It's okay, still too heavy for my skin though. I think it'd work well for you since you have dry skin though.
