Buy it: Kiehl's Abyssine Serum
Up until about a year and a half ago, I had skin so dry, it required heavy moisturizing cream in summer and, in desperate times, Aquaphor. Ever since then, when I made a medication change, my skin has been like a freaking oil slick. A related consequence is that my pores are now big enough to swim in (which may also be due to the fact that I'm getting older as well). I have tried everything from regular facials to microdermabrasion scrubs to Boots No7 Restore & Renew Serum, and nothing seemed to work. That is, until I ran out of Restore & Renew and, in a pinch, cracked open an old sample of Kiehl's Abyssine Serum. The next day, my skin looked so great, I ran out and bought an entire bottle. Not only have my pores shrunk considerably, but my skin is smooth and glowing. Why I waited so long to try the serum--it's been out for several years now--is beyond me. But I am now a true convert; I bought the eye cream, and I have a sample of both the cream and the SPF 15 lotion. Now if only I could find a product to get rid of my midday nose shine...

Love Kiehl's! It's great stuff!

Have you tried those little blotter papers for your midday nose glisten? The papers have a bit of powder on them and wick the moisture away. I think Shisedo carries them and you can find some at Sephora too!

Good luck!
