I know this has been done to death, but can anyone help,

I am 22 (quite baby-faced so don't really want any anti aging)

I currently use, superdrug hot cloth cleanser. a Crap.Blue toner, vitamin e serum and then nivea soft/ superdrug vitamin e night cream.

I've got loads of tiny spots under my skin on my chin that makes my makeup look a bit funny, any ideas what this could be or how to get rid of them?

I also want a decent moisturiser, lip balm, and eye cream?

I feel like as I am getting into my 20s, I want something a bit naicer than superdrug finest (that I've used for a couple of years now)

I've read about acid toners, and was looking at the REN one in M&S? is it any good?

sorry for repeating threads I'm just so Crap at this.

I currently use -

micellar water, vitamin e hot cloth cleanser, clearasil acid toner pads, nivea blue pot around eyes, was going to add number 7 youthful serum and lacura anti aging cream to this?

morning - micellar water, vaseline on lips, and nivea soft.

the micellar water and acid pads are new additions as of last night. am I doing this Right?

I have lots of little spots under the skin that can be seen when I stretch my skin. is there anything to get rid of these? and is the blue nivea sufficient as eye cream?

I can only comment on the REN acid toner which I use twice a week and I like it. I've also tried the Clarins one which was good too. The REN range as a whole is good I think, if you are wanting to upgrade. Also, have a look at the French pharmacy brands such as Vichy which is stocked in Boots. The Sali Hughes column in the Guardian online is good for advice.

Have a look at the amazing faces threads.

Tons of advice, but quite a long read so grab yourself a brew

And don't go mental using loads of products, or things full of alcohol and fragrance, that will irritate and ultimately contribute to skin damage. SPF should be a priority, bearing in mind that any damage caused now won't show on your face for a few years.

will look into an spf, actually I remember looking at the la Roche posay rosaliac moisturiser, that has an spf in I believe.

will have a look for unperfumed things as occasionally, fragrances can flare my skin anyway so I tend to watch out for certain things
