Frustrated with my skin

A little over a month ago, I started a new skin care routine, hoping to battle the occasional breakout and to get rid of sudden flakiness on my forehead and undereyes/inner cheeks.

As I was cautioned by the wonderful users here, it can take awhile for your skin to adjust to new products, and it's best to give them four weeks to start balancing out. I've given four weeks and then some, and am not seeing any improvement at all in the flakiness. That's my biggest problem! I can't wear concealer and/or foundation without magnifying the flakiness problem. I'm moisturizing constantly. I exfoliate gently every few days to get rid of dead skin cells.

I don't know what to do or where to go from here. I've never had a skin problem that was hard to get rid of, and am already feeling rather defeated over this one.

Remember when we all used to post our scent reviews of products from MMU and Coconut Hut?! That was so much fun! So, now I'm going to tell you about some of my favorite scents that I've used recently.

MMU's Day at the Beach scent is making me long for summer. It smells like sunscreen, but in a Banana Boat kind of way, not a Bobby Brown Beach way. And, I'm really liking the Jojoba-E Body lotion that the scent is in. It's really moisturizing and silky. Love it!

I'm also really loving Coconut Hut's Violet Essence scent. I have it in a perfume spray, and most every time I wear it, people want to sniff me.

I've also been using my CH body wash in Maple Pecan Streusel a lot in the mornings because, well, it smells like breakfast.

What are the products that you are using now? What scents are you in love with?
