This week’s GORGEOUS GIVEAWAY offers you the chance to sample the good life. Velixa Day Correction Cream (ARV $125) is available at exclusive venues like The Mélange Salon at the Peninsula Hotel in Manhattan and the Windsor Pharmacies in New York City, and of course, on line at Velixa.com. We have three jars to give to our lucky winners.

This is a deep hydrating cream, rich, but not oily at all, and dries to a matte finish. It is formulated to reduce the appearance of fine lines, tighten skin, and moisturize, powered by a blend of Resveratrol and peptides. Resveratrol is a natural antioxidant found in red grapes, wine, and cocoa, which fights the aging effects of free radicals. Peptides are super water-binding proteins that can help plump up the skin.

A key point of difference for Velixa Day Correction Cream is that it delivers moisture to the skin for 12 hours. It also helps makeup stay on longer.

This is a great opportunity to try a unique and rare skincare treatment. Just answer our question below and you will be entered.

    Dry skin, because it’s hard to get foundation to not look crusty over dry skin.

  2. jmiranda181 Says:

    Oily skin is worse because you can’t really fix it without washing your face.

  3. lovelions Says:

    Oily for sure!! I can’t keep up with keeping my face with shine free. At least with dry skin you can moisturize and that will help.

  4. msbogwan Says:

    Dry skin is worse, because it’s difficult to find a moisturizer that keeps the skin hydrated for long. Makeup looks bad, like it’s sitting on top of the dry patches.

  5. labskita523 Says:

    For me, it is dry skin. It makes you look old and scaley. =)

  6. wizardewu Says:

    Dry skin is worse because my skin looks flaky and dull.

  7. amy carian Says:

    Oily skin, because it constantly needs to be blotted/powdered.

  8. brandisweet Says:

    i think dry skin is worse because of how much it shows ageing! oily skin people age much better!

  9. carolena Says:

    Dry skin, because it makes you look older.

  10. august27lsh Says:

    I think it’s worst to have oily skin because it’s hard to eliminate shine even when you apply powder. It does not seem to last all day for me. Whereas if you have dry skin, there’s plenty of great facial moisturizer and lotion to help and prevent dry skin.

  11. jadamcikova Says:

    dry skin—makes me feel so worn out and look older than I am,..especially around my eyes!

  12. arabela Says:

    Oily skin is worse, pores get clogged , spots and black heads appear, and make up doesn’t stay on long enough

  13. anissa23 Says:

    Mixed feelings on this one. I have dealt with oily skin my whole life. The only plus on it, is less wrinkles for me. I’ve never had dry skin. I would think you would wrinkle more.

  14. onecheer Says:

    Oily skin because it always looks slick and causes breakouts.

  15. brea121605 Says:

    Personally I think dry skin is worse, my skin can be dry or oily depending on the time of the year (winter vs. summer). I have a hard time finding a regimen that works when it’s dry. I can easily work with oily skin.

  16. boofa29 Says:

    Good question… I’d have to say both. If your wearing makeup, then dry skin is worse because foundation on top of dry skin isn’t pretty. But on the other hand, those of us with oily skin know that it’s not fun looking like an oily mess lol. Summertime isn’t always so fun for us w/oily skin. So that’s a hard one to answer.. But if I had to pick, I’d say dry because I can always just blot 😉

  17. Sandy Says:

    Oily skin. It makes your make up run, you have that terrible shine to deal with. It makes you look sweaty.

  18. Antonina Gladkova Says:

    i think the dry skin is worse because its aging faster.

  19. taru.dhawan Says:

    I think dry skin is worse coz it causes again sooner.

  20. lisamys1 Says:

    I have dry skin and it is worse..fine lines show more, make up doesn’t go on well. Dry skin doesn’t have the moisture that it needs and this cream sounds phenomemal to help.

  21. carole312 Says:

    I think it’s worse to have dry skin. Dry skin is more prone to early wrinkles.

  22. missluckybreaks Says:

    Definitely dry skin b/c it’s annoying to see flaky skin over makeup!

  23. katem Says:

    Dry skin. It’s so difficult to moisturize dry and flaky skin during the winter.

  24. Susan Peters Says:

    I think dry skin is worse because it has less elasticity and more visible lines. Dry skin is more sensitive to the environment, when exposed to drying factors, skin can crack, peel, or become itchy, irritated, or inflamed. If your skin is very dry, it can become rough and scaly. It is important to keep dry skin hydrated. Dry skin must be moisturized before applying makeup in order for foundation to apply smoothly. Oily skin shows the signs of aging less than dry skin.

  25. langgataka Says:

    Definitely dry skin. It would make you look 2-3 years older. It is flakey if you put BB Cream or makeups. Looks so unhealthy too.

  26. redfuzzycow Says:

    dry skin, because it’s hard to tame the flakes!

  27. miluna4u Says:

    I think oily skin is worse, the shine always peaks through after applying it. Summertime is really rough, make up just slides off and looks sweaty.

  28. carole312 Says:

    I think it’s worse to have dry skin. I have heard that dry skin is more prone to early wrinkles.

  29. amyorvin Says:

    Dry because it’s itchy! Yuck!!

  30. Lisande Says:

    I am “lucky” enough to have both types of skin — and each comes with its own blessings and curses. My dry skin emphasizes the lines around my eyes and mouth. My ever-so-attractive oily skin offers a “lovely” backdrop for my large pores. And who can resist any look that says both sweaty and shiny. Sigh. Is there one product for both?

  31. heathersweet Says:

    Dry skin is the worst!

  32. tiffie555 Says:

    dry because it wrinkles easier

  33. caseales Says:

    Dry skin because it leaves you with dry flaky skin and it’s hard to find the right product to help and give you the good skin you deserve and appreciate !!

  34. Laurelflower Says:

    I’d say oily bc thats what I have and I breakouts still in my 30’s!

  35. Lexiquin Says:

    I think dry skin is worse–because it hurts!

  36. ephlet Says:

    I would say dry skin is worse b/c it ages faster.

  37. deedeeschell Says:

    Personally, I think dry skin is the worst. Applying foundation over parched skin gives a reptile like appearance…….NOT PRETTY!

  38. johnsonmandh Says:

    I think dry skin is worse. Fine fines show faster than with oily skin and it’s so hard to keep your makeup from looking cakey.

  39. CatOLuck Says:

    I think dry skin is worse. It can’t be easily repaired and moisturizer only goes so far.

  40. CKay Says:

    I’ve not had oily skin, so I’m not sure what those folks go though. I’m sure its not nice for them either. But dry, which I do have, is the worst for me. It makes skin look wrinkly and other areas it can be red, itchy and flaky. And all the time spent constantly moisturizing and exfoliating and waiting for the lotion to penetrate the skin before dressing isn’t fun either.

  41. seefs Says:

    Dry skin is worse because you can see that patches on your skin, and you can’t cover it up with makeup without making it look worse! Moisturizers don’t seem to last, and come off when you wash your face.

  42. BarracudaRon Says:

    Dry, itchy/scaly yuck

  43. Kat Says:

    Oily skin, because makeup seems to ‘slide’ off easier and it is more breakout prone. What is the worst of all is having skin with a combination of the two, which is usually oily in the ‘T-zone’ and dry everywhere else.

  44. weeziestoy Says:

    Both are aggravating…but the dry spots flake….the oil spots just shine…

  45. amylynnwells Says:

    oily, I have oily skin and you can never hide it, it always comes through makeup and looks bad. In the summer it is the worst when it is humid.

  46. catherine12 Says:

    I would say dry skin is the worst. It can make makeup go on cakey. It makes every line and wrinkle show through.

  47. adendyut Says:

    Combination because you aren’t sure what to treat…

  48. jlo Says:

    Oily skin is worse. You ALWAYS break out. Even when you are old and gray. Oye!!!!

  49. Marilyn22 Says:

    Oily skin is worse because of the feeling of constant oil
    But there are less wrinkles to worry about.
    Dry skin Its horrible my cheeks are normal dry
    And I don’t like the feeling.
    It’s like all the creams I use go right through so I use a serum then
    A cream and in the center t zone I just use light serum.

  50. Terrief Says:

    Dry! Those patches look terrible with or without makeup. At least oily skin can be blotted and look better-dry there is no help.

  51. Sarah Rene Says:

    I feel like dry skin is worst to have than oily because dry skin seems to age faster and is more prone to wrinkles.

  52. mommydi1 Says:

    I can only speak from my experience. I have oily skin, and because of the acne it’s caused me, I’d say it’s worse!

  53. Leslie Says:

    That’s tough because I have both… But I’d have to say dry cause it makes you look older & makeup looks awful over it.

  54. southerngirl Says:

    Dry skin is the worst because foundation tends to look cakey on my face when it’s dry. And dry skin is more prone to wrinkling.

  55. stefanieb Says:

    I think dry skin is worse than oily because it gets wrinkles sooner.

  56. Annette Says:

    I think dry skin is worse. I have oily skin and can do things to control it, but as I age I feel it getting a little dryer. Dry skin is uncomfortable and show signs of aging, faster.
