Gel cream > everything for my acne prone skin

Glossy.glossary
I was 100% using the wrong moisturizer earlier this year for at least two months. I kept moving toward these thick night creams and they all felt so heavy and I swear they clogged my pores. Then I was watching a video with Susan Yara and she mentioned that people with acne prone skin might want to try a lighter, gel moisturizer. And now there is no way I’m going back anytime soon. belif - The True Cream Aqua Bomb
After trying a few different brands, Belif Aqua Bomb continues to be a favourite (although I also have a lot of love for a drugstore dupe...). However, I am still on the hunt for the perfect gel moisturizer! The good: + it feels super lightweight but also keeps my skin moisturized all day and night. + applying this just feels so refreshing and almost cooling. I love the sensation. + it won’t clog my pores. + it absorbs nicely into the skin and it doesn’t feel greasy at all. The not so good: - It’s not the cheapest... and although you don’t need that much, I just love it and i slather it everywhere... meaning I use it pretty fast. So that’s my own fault, but yes it’s definitely an investment if you’re applying to your face, neck and chest, morning and night. - it does have some fragrance and alcohol in the formula.. so if you do have sensitive or dry skin, do be careful. It doesn’t make a huge difference to me and I don’t find it drying at all, but something to keep in mind. Worth it? It’s honestly a little more than I want to spend right now on a everyday moisturizer, but every time I buy this I never regret it. So yes. Will I repurchase? Already have! I might not purchase again right away, but I probably will again because I really do love the experience of using this. Ps I have combination, acne prone skin :)

🛍 I got this set complementary 💙Moisturizer: - I extremely love this item. I got an example of this item, and I plan to go out and buy it. This cream has a truly extraordinary smell. -This item is so saturating. I love that it is a gel rather than a cream, it truly sinks into my skin. I really put the container in my cooler, and it feels inconceivable all over when it's somewhat chilled. -The texture feels very luxurious (it is a thicker cream) and it absorbs into my skin quite nicely without leaving a sticky residue (a little goes a long way, so I can see myself stretching out this product) 👁Eye cream: -It feels calming, and like an invigorating hydration for your under eye zone - the hydration keeps going throughout the day, and I'm glad that I purchased this. I have just been utilizing it for a couple of days and have seen an improvement in my overly dull under eye circles. -This saturating eye bomb has become my new most loved daytime expansion to my skincare schedule. It's the exact opposite thing I apply before the beginning of my day. I LOVE the wonderful way lightweight it feels, how rapidly it assimilates, and its invigorating, clean aroma. I've been raving about it so much, that I've even gotten my beau to succumb to the pattern. I feel like this item truly takes out my dark circles and makes my eyes look more invigorated and hydrated. Serum -This is an extremely lightweight equation that dries down rapidly and sinks into the skin, leaving no follow. It has a slight home grown smell, not terrible but rather not aroma like by the same token. I completely appreciate utilizing this both day and night, as it sinks down into the skin and doesn't influence anything I layer on after it. -Apply any remaining layers of your healthy skin like regular, holding up at any rate 30 seconds between each progression. I genuinely think this will a staple in my Medicine bureau until the end of time! ✅ The Good: - Has a stunning gel surface - A little truly goes far, which I was extremely intrigued by - An extraordinary summer lotion for combo skin - SCENTED, yet didn't aggravate my skin. The aroma wasn't over controlling either, has a decent new fragrance to it. In case you're going for totally unscented, this may not be it. ❌ The Bad - Alcohol Denat is the THIRD fixing. This is a drying liquor, which gives items a brisk drying finish. It's not extraordinary for the skin boundary, and a few examinations have proposed that the drawn out utilization of drying liquor in skincare will exceed any prompt advantages.

I Promised a Skin Update, Right?!? 😧☺️💕

But I would Love to find a new option 😎) Now, I’m fully aware that my skin is far from perfect. But when I first started my Cherie, my skin was going LOCO . But with lots of patience and self care, my skin has come a LONG way and I’m so proud of myself. 😩👽🤟🏾 In this photo collage, I don’t have on ANY makeup. It’s all skin and all me. I’m still working on my pores and dark spots/marks. But my texture has improved immensely. 🦋🧡💓 If you guys have any tips please feel free to share in the comments! Chow 💋

🌸belif aqua bomb dupe! 🌸 The Belif true cream aqua bomb is an ultra light weight oil free gel cream that instantly cools and refreshes skin while providing intensive hydration! It is perfect for oily and combo skin types. It can be solutions for oiliness, dryness, and pores! The texture of this is a thick gel cream that is light blue in color, and smells so fresh. I absolutely love this moisturizer and the brand Belif it self. This moisturizer does everything that it says and helps with oiliness very well! The ingredients in this help neutralize skin damaging free radicals, improves skin elasticity, and minimizes the appearance of pores. This was recommended to me by a friend and I picked it up about a year ago and have been using it ever since, and will definitely be repurchasing! It is very hydrating and didn’t break me out, I saw great results in my pores and oiliness after a couple days of using this. I would recommend this to anyone looking for a light weight gel moisturizer to help with oiliness or the look of pores, you would enjoy this a lot! It is worth buying and is $38 for 1.68oz which is a good amount of product! 🌸The bliss drench and quench moisturizer is a cream to water hydrator for all day moisture! This ultra-lightweight moisturizer transforms into water on contact, surging skin with more than 10,000 marine micro-droplets for intense, yet weightless, all-day hydration. It can be solutions for oiliness, dryness, and redness. The texture is a very thick gel cream that is very cooling on the skin! Perfectly balanced hydration disappears instantly into the skin, no greasy or heavy feeling. I really love using this moisturizer when my skin is really oily it is very good at oil control! My skin immediately feels soft, healthy and refreshed, within 4 weeks skin's moisture barrier is improved. I have been using this for about a year because it was recommended to me by a friend! It is very hydrating and didn’t break me out! It had great results and helped with my skins oiliness a lot. I would definitely recommend this to anyone who is looking for a fantastic oil control product, it is hypoallergenic, dermatologist tested, non-comedogenic, and cruelty-free. This product is definitely worth purchasing for $20 for 1.7oz! 🌸The Bliss drench and quench moisturizer is an amazing dupe for the Belif true cream aqua bomb!! The textures are super similar and are both gel and very hydrating! And it Is like $20 cheaper which is amazing! The product is both blue as well, and they have the same fresh smell!bliss - Drench & Quench Moisturizer belif - The True Cream Aqua Bomb

Why I can’t stop using this moisturizer ✨
Why I can’t stop using this moisturizer ✨
This is my favorite inexpensive night time moisturizer and here’s why it should be yours, too! Why it’s awesome: it is lightweight and easy on the skin while being very effective for dry skin. I have acne prone skin and I use this after my more drying products and it keeps me hydrated all night. it is not fragranced, but it still smells amazing! I still love a fresh scent in my skin care. this moisturizer is super inexpensive and I got it off amazon! it’s easy to include into your routine. works for all skin types! *I use at night only because it isn’t an spf moisturizer* Simple - Water Boost Gel Cream Comes in a small and larger size so you don’t have to commit to a full product if you’re just giving it a try! I paid about $6 on amazon.

hands down the best moisturizer for sensitive or oily skin- and here is why is works for both: it is scent free and designed for sensative skin (as all boscia products are) and is just light as air. and because it is so light yet so hydrating, you oily skin gals need this as well!!

Moisturizer for Oily Skin: Coconut Water by FAB
Moisturizer for Oily Skin: Coconut Water by FAB
FIRST AID BEAUTY - Hello FAB Coconut Water Cream Moisturizer for oily skin: This cream is a gel cream meant for oily skin. Here is how FAB describes it: oil-free, refreshingly light water cream infused with skin nourishing coconut water that hydrocharges your skin with a burst of electrolyte-rich moisture. The electrolytes and coconut water to moisturize the skin. This is interesting because it's made for oily skin and suitable for sensitive skin as well as it's fragrance free. I got this cream because I liked that it was natural and smelled of coconut without added fragrance. My skin is what I would call aging oily skin - definitely some dry spots, but my t zone is very oily so in the summer especially I go for lighter gel creams like this. If you look at the texture shot you will see this is a gel cream with a white texture. It is absorbed quickly. There are a lot of silicones in it which probably helps the texture but might make some people break out. My experience- this cream dried my skin. It absorbed fast and worked well with makeup, but this would only work for someone with very oily skin. It left my cheeks feeling dry and tight. I could see myself using this in a humid climate or the summer, but definitely not in the winter. It didn't make me breakout or cause any adverse reactions aside from my skin feeling tight. This is definitely not a night cream. This retails for $34 for a large 1.7 ounce jar. I could see the jar lasting a while so this is an ok price for a mid-tier moisturizer. I give this 3/5 stars. I wouldn't rebuy it because I felt like it was too drying for my skin. If you like gel moisturizers, this might be a good bet but it wasn't for me personally.

Hello FAB Coconut Water Cream
FIRST AID BEAUTY-Hello FAB Coconut Water Cream
Great Moisturizer with SPF
Great Moisturizer with SPF
One of my favorite options for moisturizers that provide SPF is the Too Faced Hangover Good to Go Priming Moisturizer! It provides SPF 25 and is an extension of Too Faced's popular line of Hangover themed priming products and skincare. Very moisturzing, it contains hyaluranic acid to keep the skin moist, coconut water (which lends it a lovely coconut smell), and aloe leave extract to soothe the skin. This does contain avobenzone which is a chemical, not mineral sunscreen. My experience: I love this product. First of all, this smells like a tropical vacation (obviously if you are sensitive to smell or don't like coconut scented products this is a pass) and it leaves my skin really moisturized. It doesn't leave a white cast like a lot of SPF moisturizers do, and it does not leave a stick sunscreen residue. It has not broken me out either, sometimes things containing coconut oil (in here there's coconut water, not oil) cause acne flares, but none of that with this product. It also acts as a fabulous makeup base. Next check out the texture shots. The first texture shot shows what it looks like straight out of the tube. The second shot shows how it looks after it's been rubbed in a little bit. You will notice it certainly leaves a glowy sheen to the skin, but nothing chalky or white. This retails $34 for a 40ml / 1.4 oz bottle, which is definitely fair. This tube has lasted me a while and this is a good deal for a suncreen that doubles ias a moisturizer. I rate this product 5/5 stars. It smells nice, makes my skin feel good, provides sun protection and doesn't leave a white cast! Check it out!

A great summer moisturizer for oily skin!
A great summer moisturizer for oily skin!
a.My skin type is combination, often with hormonal acne during parts of the month. I generally have pretty balanced skin! b.This product is an oil-free moisturizer meant for oilier skin types, and it mattifies the skin and prepares it for sunscreen! c.The texture is so beautiful! It’s a creamy gel that sinks in really quickly and definitely mattifies the skin. It does not leave a dewy finish at all. The packaging and color of the product are beautiful, just as all Farmacy products! d.Sometimes my skin can feel a little dry after using this so I tend to use it on days when I feel oily or know I’m going to follow with a dewy sunscreen. I also only use this in the mornings after my vitamin c serum, since I prefer heavier moisturizers for my nighttime routine! e.I would recommend this to my friends with oily or combination skin! I would rate this product a 4/5 stars because the smell can be offputting to some people (all natural ingredients), and it is a bit expensive. However, I believe the cream does exactly what it says it will, so it’s a solid choice for the summer months too!
