CeraVe - Renewing SA Cleanser For Normal Skin
so prior to using this cleanser, i’ve been using Kiehl's - Blue Herbal Acne Cleanser Treatment
i have went through two bottles of this, i loved it so much. But then i found out about cerave, and it was much cheaper so i switched. Both cleanser work wonderssss for my acne. The only difference is that the cerave one i found to be tingling, a little sensitizing to my skin. But the ingredients wise is so much better than the kiehls. Other than that, both has cleared my skin so much throughout the entire year. My skincare journey started january of this year 2020, i used it morning and night the first half of the year, then started using it only at night (because it was a little drying) along with the other product. Kiehl's - Breakout Control Acne Treatment Facial Lotion
this lotion i would use night time only too. It stings a little in the beginning, but then goes away. It does have a weird smell, and the consistency is very watery, but the end results are amazing. I swear by it!!! Ive been using these two products for the entire year of 2020. I stopped using the lotion for a while, a few months, because i was trying out new products, but then i started to breakout again, so i went back and it cleared my skin again. Thats how i knew this product was the shit. - Ingredients wise, it both contains salicylic acid. I suggest using both together because the cleanser is on your face for only 60 seconds, compare to the lotion it stays overnight therefore will be more effective. It takes a while to see the effects, but trust me on this, ive been struggling with acne for the whole year so i know the struggle! - For pricing, kiehls products in general are expensive, which is why i switched the cleanser to the cerave. But the quality of the products is amazing. I would repurchase them in a heartbeat. Because I have so many products i still need to use up, once i finish my kiehls lotion, i will switch it up to PAULA'S CHOICE - Skin Perfecting 2% BHA Liquid Exfoliator
that i love so much. Don’t get me wrong, kiehls lotion is great, and it also lasted me the entire year, a little goes a long way so i would say it’s worth the price. All of these products i’m mentioning contains salicylic acid. So all this to say is, if you’re struggling with acne, add this ingredient to your skincare!!!! *Side note, i used to use the lotion only, but now that it’s winter and my skin is drying out, I layer another moisturizer on top. So i would use the lotion as a treatment, and use cerave lotion as a moisturizer. Hope it helps!!!!! xoxo

Product Mentioned
Morning + Night Routine
I have been using these products for the last two weeks as a part of my morning and night routine. I have oily, acne prone, large pores, and sometimes dry skin. 💙 I have been using the Kiehl’s acne treatment cleanser in the morning & night and I really like this face cleanser! I have noticed my acne scars have faded and this has controlled my breakouts. It doesn’t leave my face feeling dry afterwards. I am so happy that I have found a cleanser that is actually showing results. I am hoping this cleaner will continue to work on my face. I sometimes have to switch up my cleansers because they will stop working. Kiehl's - Blue Herbal Acne Cleanser Treatment 💖In the morning after I cleanse my face with the Kiehl’s cleanser I put on the fresh rose deep hydration oil infused serum. I got a free sample with one of my Sephora purchase and I love this stuff! It smells like fresh roses and the smell is not over powering. It gives my face the hydration it needs and I like to use this in the morning because it’s lighter & doesn’t leave my face looking like I dipped it in oil. I would 100% purchase this again. I have also not noticed any reaction or breakout with this product. fresh - Rose Deep Hydration Oil-Infused Serum 🤍 in the night time after I cleanse my face with the Kiehl’s cleanser I put on the ordinary Niacinamide 10% + Zinc 1% -but I only use this about 3-4 times per week. & OMG this does my face wonders 🤩🤩 I use this one in the night time because it is a bit heavy for my face and leaves it looking oily. It applies nicely on my face-no irritation or breakouts. When I wake up in the morning my face looks less red, my acne scars have gone down, my pores look smaller, and my face feels soft and smooth. I am so happy I found this product and am currently testing out other ordinary products at the moment. Will def purchase this again 🥰 The Ordinary - Niacinamide 10% + Zinc 1%

MY 2020 FAVS 🌟🌟
2020 was my year for amping my skincare journey up to the next level! I found so many amazing products, and some that just didn’t make the cut, but here are some of my favs from 2020 that I’m bringing into 2021 with me ☺️ CeraVe - Renewing SA Cleanser For Normal Skin i’ve talked about this one on my page before but it’s the best cleanser that I have ever tried ! the ingredients are packed full with skin treating ingredients such as niacinamide, salicylic acid and ceramids. it’s super hydrating, yet really gets the job done of cleansing my face and helping with present and future acne. DHC - Deep Cleansing Oil if you don’t double cleanse, here is your sign to start! I have combo skin with large pores that are my worst nemesis. now I am not saying this gets rid of your pores (that’s unfortunately impossible), but it pulls out oil plugs, removes dirt, makeup and anything on your face from the day. this is my most satisfying step of my nightly routine and I know that i’ll be oil cleansing for the long run. PAULA'S CHOICE - Skin Perfecting 2% BHA Liquid Exfoliator I think i’ve probably talked about this product maybe 10 times on my account, so that’s saying something about how great it is!! it’s such a gentle yet strong exfoliator that has helped my hormonal acne, uneven skin tone and reduced my redness and irritation. it’s packed with a punch and is an all round holy grail of mine. The Ordinary - AHA 30% + BHA 2% Peeling Solution this one for me almost does the same trick as the paula’s choice 2% bha exfoliant, but it’s definitely a lot stronger. I love doing this once a week as a little recharge for my skin. another pro with this product is that a little goes a long way, so it lasts a long time! THE inkey LIST - Retinol Serum you could call me a retinol newbie as I just got into it recently. since I just started, this one has been amazing! as it’s not good to start out with a strong retinol, I definitely recommend this one! it’s helped so much with my skin in terms of uneven skin tone, acne, and I think my blackheads are slowly decreasing. peach slices - Snail Rescue Blemish Busting Toner day and night I use this and I love it ! it’s super duper gentle, yet is such a great toner. this is my first product i’ve used which includes snail mucin, but i’m digging it!! it’s helped so much with irritation and redness, as well as aiding present pimples, and preventing future ones. innisfree - Daily UV Defense Sunscreen SPF 36 the first proper face sunscreen that I have purchased! it doesn’t have a strong SPF smell and not too much white cast at all. I may be trying another SPF soon just to compare, but so far so good with this one! OLE HENRIKSEN - Banana Bright Eye Crème I love it ! amazing smell, texture & has a nice tint to it to help reduce dark circles!

Paula's Choice Update!
So I had made a post showing "before" pictures when I added the PAULA'S CHOICE - Skin Perfecting 2% BHA Liquid Exfoliator and now I am here to give an update on how the product is working for me! The original pictures (left) are from November 7th, 2020. The current pictures (right) are from January 30th, 2021. I haven't quite made it through the bottle yet which is pretty awesome considering it's been almost 3 months! I used this product every other day for the first week and a half, but noticed my skin never felt irritated or anything so I started using it every day in the morning. I still have not noticed any irritation with doing that. I got this product to help with my congested pores, post inflammatory hyperpigmentation, and to help smooth my skin texture. Looking at my skin in the mirror, I didn't notice a revolutionary change in my skin, but then I took a closer look and looked at my before pictures. Wow! I really do see a difference! I realize that the scarring and pigmentation issues are going to take a long time to take care of and I knew that the whole time. My skin scars very easily and pimples will leave a mark whether I pop them or not, no matter how fast they come and go. I can see where some PI hyperpigmentation has definitely gotten better. I see how the texture of my skin is improving. Especially on my forehead where my skin has gotten much smoother. That area has seen a big transformation. I notice that I don't break out as bad as I used to and when I do get a couple, they move on much quicker than they ever have. This may be just due to my routine in general, but I know this product is doing its share of the work. The only things I don't like about the product (and the reason for the 4 stars instead of 5) are: the smell. Its a very chemically smell. It dissipates, but I don't particularly like it. the feel on my face before it sinks in. While this part only lasts a very short period of time, this product feels tacky and thick. It does sink into the skin, but during that short period, it feels like a mask on my face. They say you don't have to wait for it to dry to move on to your next step, but my next step is Niacinamide which gets foamy and weird if I don't let the PAULA'S CHOICE - Skin Perfecting 2% BHA Liquid Exfoliator dry for a minute or 2. Overall, I'm pretty happy with the direction my skin is going. It has a long way to go with the issues I am wanting to take on, but its a process and I will not give up 💪. I am also using this post as a "before" for the next product I am adding in now! I am starting the CeraVe - Resurfacing Retinol Serum to double whammy this scarring! I had previously used a retinol serum, but I genuinely think it did nothing so I decided to try out a good brand this time. I took a break from the retinol so I could get a good look at how my skin is before starting the CeraVe! I will do another update in a few months for the retinol.

Sensitive/oily acne-prone skin journey
I recently turned 40, and about a year ago I started working on helping my aging acne-prone skin. I really improved using sunscreen and started using treatments like retinol. Have had some red irritated skin, when I’m not careful but slowly improving. GLOW RECIPE - Papaya Sorbet Smoothing Enzyme Cleansing Balm Started double cleansing at night, love the texture and it doesn’t break me out! KORRES - Greek Yoghurt Foaming Cream Cleanser So gentle yet perfect cleanser for me. INDIE LEE - CoQ-10 Toner This is a Holy Grail moisturizing toner! Hydrates and is so gentle! EMINENCE - Strawberry Rhubarb Hyaluronic Serum Moisturizes and helps breakouts. EMINENCE - Clear Skin Probiotic Moisturizer So moisturizing and calming. BIOSSANCE - Squalane + Zinc Sheer Mineral Sunscreen SPF 30 PA +++ First sunscreen I’ve found that didn’t break me out or irritate my skin. Rotating Treatments PAULA'S CHOICE - Skin Perfecting 2% BHA Liquid Exfoliator Helps my acne prone skin but doesn’t irritate. Using a couple times a week. Marie Veronique Gentle Retinol Night serum- Love this! Expensive but I haven’t found a dupe yet. ACNE FREE - Adapalene Gel USP 15G I use this once a week but have to be super careful. facetheory - PoreBright Serum N10 Helps oiliness and brightens skin. THE inkey LIST - 15% Vitamin C and EGF Fist vitamin C serum that didn’t irritate my skin or break me out.

Cerave SA renewing Cleanser doing to my face !
So I brought a new product for my face and I think it’s making my face even worse. Every morning and night I use the CeraVe - Foaming Facial Cleanser For Normal To Oily Skin and then after that I would moisturize and put DIFFERIN - DIFFERIN Acne Treatment Gel I had gotten pimples the next day but they are gone now so 3x a week I put the CeraVe - Renewing SA Cleanser For Normal Skin but after the 2nd time using it I put my lotion and my whole face just started burning. Now I’m not sure if my skin is sensitive or something else. Should I keep using it ?

CeraVe - Foaming Facial Cleanser For Normal To Oily Skin I first use this to get rid of all the dirt and sweat on my face from throughout the day. It does a really nice job of hydrating the skin and definitely does not over strip; it’s super gentle! This is my new favourite cleanser. PAULA'S CHOICE - Pore-Reducing Toner I use this occasionally in my night skincare routine when I feel like my face and especially my pores need a deeper clean. PAULA'S CHOICE - Skin Perfecting 2% BHA Liquid Exfoliator THE HOLY GRAIL ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ I cannot go a day without using this. It really helps control my hormonal acne that I get every month, keeps new breakouts at bay and diminishes the size of my pores! If you get anything from this, it would have to be this product!!! PAULA'S CHOICE - Antioxidant Pore Purifier I like this product a lot as it has salicylic acid in it which is really good for those hormonal breakouts of mine that I get! It calms the skin down with white tea extract too. CeraVe - Moisturizing Cream For Normal To Dry Skin I love this moisturiser! With using the PAULA'S CHOICE - Skin Perfecting 2% BHA Liquid Exfoliator it is important to keep my skin moisturised after any sort of exfoliation, and this sure does do the trick! It’s not too thick at all and leaves you glowing. MARIO BADESCU - Mario Badescu Drying Lotion For me, I do like this product and use it every night when I can feel a breakout coming in that area or for any whitehead that I currently have. It definitely shrinks the whitehead and also helps keep some of my bumpy skin at bay!
