What make up are you using? I know you don't want to just cover it, but could any make up be aggravating it? Regarding skincare, Environ products are loaded with vitamin A, and as a previous poster has said, their Accumax supplements have given brilliant results! Please pm me if you would like more info x

I would say you are over cleansing.Are you using the Clinique toners as well.The Clarisonic is probably stimulating oil production as well and if you are not cleaning the heads properly you are spreading bacteria all over your face.I quite like the Clarisonic,but not for every skin condition and not everyday.
If you strip all your skins natural oils away you will just encourage your skin to produce more oil.You need to moisturise but with the right one.
I think you need to determine whether you have acne or rosacea.Does your skin get worse in the sun.Does your skin flush after eating certain foods,alcohol.Do you get sore eyes.
Have you had more stress in your life lately.
My advice is stop treating your skin so harshly and go to the drs and get a proper diagnosis so at least you know what you ar dealing with.If its rosacea there is an antibiotic cream that may help.

I think this info explains a lot about your issue. Which Clinique cleanser is it? The balm is ok, but I would avoid any other cleanser from them.

Do not use your Clarisonic daily. This could be irritating your skin. I would stop it completely for a while to see if this is having an effect.

You absolutely must moisturise! Every skin type needs moisture. Just think what your skin goes through every day, especially with your cleansing method. Your skin may be producing excess oil because of the Clarisonic and lack of moisture.
