Cheaper alternative to dermalogica???

Hi. I had a facial mapping thing done with the dermalogica counter a few weeks ago and have used the samples they gave me which were fab BUT I am not prepared to spend over £100 on the four products they recommended.

SO I am after an alternative. I am in my mid 30s and suffering from acne since coming off the pill, I feel I shoudl be looking after my skin a bit more rather than just buying odds and ends of whatever is on offer.

any advice???

What were the products they gave you?
I've spent years trying alternatives to save money but my skin reacts to everything else!

This is wonderful stuff for problem / sensitive skin (hope the link works)

Avene was awful for my skin, for products aimed at sensitive skin they are too fragranced!

This was me- I found the Liz Earle hot polish cleanser good and cheaper but the moisturiser not a good equivalent
Currently using the aldi la prairie caviar equivalent for moisturiser I elbowed my way to get on a Sunday morning of launch which is good
Eye cream- using a freebie number 7 sample which seems good

Liz Earle is definitely not cheaper ml for ml

£22 for pump tube vs about £40?
