LaurenOMalleyAck! You might want to drop the witch hazel... that stuff is very drying! Toner is very unnecessary in a skincare routine, and check out some exfoliants like Paulas Choice BHA 2% liquid. I love it!

I’ve been on tretinoin since November 2nd 2020, I think I’m still in the purging process but not as many pimples are coming in as they were a week or two ago. I’ve incorporated a few things into my routine that I think are helping with the inflammation. My new routine is Morning VANICREAM - Gentle Facial Cleanser e.l.f. - Holy Hydration! Face Cream - Fragrance Free I just started using this a few days ago so not sure how I like it so far, the texture is pretty thick so I would personally only use this moisturizer in the winter months Neutrogena - On-the-Spot Acne Treatment on my active spots after moisturizer Then I put a small amount of my FIRST AID BEAUTY - Ultra Repair Cream Cucumber Melon all over or I’ll use my holy hydration cream but I definitely like the feeling of the ultra repair cream much more. Then sun bum - Face Lotion SPF 50 I’m in search for a new sunscreen preferably no fragrance, good for acne prone skin, and mineral. The sunbum is okay, leaves no white cast, at first it makes your face look really greasy but it dries nicely. I haven’t really noticed any problems with this I don’t think but I was told that chemical sunscreens are a bit harsher for acne prone sensitive skin like mine so I’m hoping to find something that fits my needs more, let me know if you have any suggestions! (Something affordable please, times are tough covid sucks 🙃) At night time I do VANICREAM - Gentle Facial Cleanser e.l.f. - Holy Hydration! Face Cream - Fragrance Free Then I alternate every other night I’ll either do the Neutrogena - On-the-Spot Acne Treatment Then the next night I’ll use my OBAGI - Tretinoin 0.025% Cream Rx Then I’ll add a layer of moisturizer on top, I usually reach for my FIRST AID BEAUTY - Ultra Repair Cream Cucumber Melon because I just enjoy it I think I might go and pick up the FIRST AID BEAUTY - Ultra Repair Cream without the melon and see if I enjoy that one as well. I’m thinking of trying a cleansing oil to add into my night routine, right now I’m looking into getting Mad Hippie - Mad Hippie Cleansing Oil or the DHC - Deep Cleansing Oil Let me know if you have tried these! I have my eye on a few products I’d like to incorporate into my routine in the near future, but I don’t want to over do it right now because I’m still only a month into my tretinoin treatment. I know I’m going to end up with a lot of red scaring as I already am 🙃 so I’m definitely taking suggestions on how to clear that up once my active acne has gotten under control So far happy that my skin is starting to improve, hopefully the worst has past but we will see 😬
A dermatologist’s recs for maskne 😷✨
Let’s talk maskne, the most common chief complaint I’m seeing these days. There are many different causes ranging from acne mechanica (acne caused by irritation/pressure from the masks) to actually being allergic to the mask material. Consider seeing a dermatologist if the following tips/products don’t seem to help: If possible wear a clean surgical mask daily however with PPE shortage, this may not be possible. I use a n95 + surgical mask at work and a breathable, cotton mask outside of work. Avoid unnecessary makeup, don’t forget sunscreen, and don’t skip out on moisturizing. Whether you have dry or oily skin, you still need moisturizer. Oily/combination skin: use a benzoyl peroxide cleanser, a gentle retinoid such as adapalene gel, and spot treatment with either BP or salicylic acid. Start slow and increase as tolerated. Dry/sensitive skin: use a gentle cleanser, gentle moisturizer, and if tolerated consider a spot treatment with either benzoyl peroxide or salicylic acid. Consider slowly adding a gentle retinoid like adapalene gel two to three times a week while using adequate moisturizer. What are your favorite types of masks/maskne treatments?

My skin journey
My goal is to make my skin even better Some products that I really like were Neutrogena - Facial Moisturizer this was really really nice especially to me and others with combo skin but the only thing is that I was a bit thick and it kinda had a Cakey feeling when you put in on
Store it, See it, Use it: Organization Tips
Tips for better bathroom storage: 1. Keep only your most-used products on the counter. For me, this is cleanser, toner, moisturizer, cotton balls, tissues, and a bag of some other frequently used skincare products. 2. Ideas for your “frequently used” counter bag: Men’s deodorant (changes your life) Once a week exfoliant and cleanser One product for chapped lips Products for eczema SPF moisturizer/sunscreen New products to try soon, like a special moisturizer 3. Great in a pull out drawer with dividers: Dental products/floss Gels like neosporen or scar gel Foot products All those extra lip balms Tweezers Nail products Contact lens Combs/brushes/hair ties Feminine hygiene products 4. Have refills ready in a plastic tub under the sink. Tools can go under the sink too! 5. I’m not leaving the house or wearing makeup right now due to the pandemic, so all my makeup is stored in one train case under the sink. Comment below if you want to see what’s in the makeup case I hope this inspires you to organize your bathroom. Have a great day beauties 🥰

See below for skincare routine I’m now on accutane been 1 month my doctor prescribed me 30mg for 4 weeks & after i have to take 60mg for 2 weeks but 1 week into my 60mg i have an appointment with my doctor & i have to do blood test before seeing my doctor. The first 2-3 weeks of 30mg i had back pain & my nose bled 1 once & my lips & eyes was getting dry. My nose skin & the side of my nose was so dry. Im now currently on 60mg it been 1 week now. im currently experimenting purging since my dose increased. I had one nose bleed & i think using humidifier really help because if i didn’t im sure i would have more nose bleed. Skincare routine My night time routine ￼I wash my face CeraVe - Hydrating Facial Cleanser good for hydration ￼ ￼After i use COSRX - Advanced Snail 96 Mucin Power Essence i heard it’s good to heal acne scar & i used to use it before & i love it ￼After i use The Ordinary - Alpha Arbutin 2% + HA Alpha Arbutin reduces the looks of spots and hyper-pigmentation & it’s really gentle & since it’s gentle it won’t irritate my skin while on accutane & since im dark skin I get hyperpigmentation super easily & this helps reduce it & it also contains hyaluronic acid which is good for hydration. ￼For moisturizer i use 5 drop of The Ordinary - 100% Organic Cold Pressed Rose Hip Seed Oil mixed with The Ordinary - Natural Moisturizing Factors + HA BEST COMBO EVER for my face. My face stay hydrated & my nose skin & the side of my nose do not get dry at all everytime i wake up in the morning my face stay hydrated. I love it My morning routine It’s the same as my night routine i only add sunscreen at the end and the one im using is Rohto Mentholatum - Skin Aqua UV Super Moisture Milk SPF50+ PA++++[FiveStars] Best sunscreen ever it’s POC friendly so no white cast it’s a mixed of chemicals & physical sunscreen & most importantly it’s FRAGRANCE-FREE which is super important while on accutane & i feel it’s rare to have fragrance free sunscreen with no white cast & it’s a moisturizing sunscreen so it helps my skin getting more hydration. For dry eyes I’m using SYSTANE® - COMPLETE LUBRICANT EYE DROP [FiveStars] For my dry lips i use Aquaphor - Healing Ointment Skin Protectant When i shower i use this BIODERMA - Atoderm Shower Oil it got fragrance but since it’s a wash off it’s ok i love it because my skin never feel dry after Im done showering. DON’T use it on your face only body.

Completely erase your deep wrinkles with this
I have struggled with harsh lines since my 20’s. The furrow line in my forehead is so pronounced I didn’t believe there was a skincare solution. I’ve switched my nighttime and daytime routine around three times since I started Cherie because of the knowledge I’ve gained from Cherie members and board certified dermatologist Dr.Dray. Here is what I do; Morning Routine 💙I rinse my face with water - DO NOT CLEANSE (I have an article on my page as to why you should not cleanse in the morning please check it out) 💜 AHA (alpha hydroxy acid) this product makes your skin smooth and brighten and it actually preps the skin to allow better absorption of the next product 💛Vitamin C serum is applied, vitamin c helps reduce the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines 💚hyaluronic acid it plumps my skin up 🧡neutrogena hydro boost with spf 50. This is a water gel lotion with hyaluronic acid 🤍I finish with Avene moisturizing protecting lotion, this lotion I swear by it. It doesn’t claim to reduce fine lines but as soon as I put it on all my forehead wrinkles smooth right out. ➡️sometimes I add Vaseline to the sensitive areas of my face if I’m staying home the under eye where crows feet are and the furrow in my forehead. Doing this protects the skin barrier because it locks in the moisture from your products and slows down their absorption rate which means you benefit more from them. Nighttime routine 💛oil based cleanser. Oil based cleansers break up makeup, sunscreen and sebum more efficiently than regular gel cleansers 💙gel based cleanser next, it completely cleans the face from any left over oil cleanser ♥️ toner maybe twice - three times a week but not everyday as it’s winter the air is dry, toner can be even more drying 💚Retinoid serum comes next, but the face should be dry. 🧡Niacinamide to reduce the appearance of pores and fine line. 💜Vitamin E at the end of the day helps your skin barrier restore itself from the pollutants and uva and uvb exposure 🤎moisturizer is second to last on my routine, 💖last but not least in fact one of the most important things is SLUGGING! petroleum jelly is smeared on my face focused on the underlines where crows feet show, the furrow on my forehead - I don’t do my neck. I explained up above why this benefits you. ❇️so after 1 month of doing this my wrinkles have erased and my pores look great❇️ Fourth Ray - Reveal 10% Alpha Hydroxy Acid Serum TruSkin - Vitamin C Serum Fourth Ray - Hyaluronic Hydra Duo Skincare Kit Neutrogena - Hydro Boost Water Gel Sunscreen Lotion SPF 30 Avene moisturizing cream DHC - Deep Cleansing Oil CeraVe - Hydrating Facial Cleanser Neutrogena - Rapid Wrinkle Repair Retinol Oil Fourth Ray - Remedy 10% Niacinamide Serum Vitamin E from TrueSkin Avene moisturizing cream Vaseline - 100% Pure Petroleum Jelly, Original

5 Ways Snow Damages Your Skin
Hey Beauty’s 🙋🏽♀️ I realised it may be summer here in Australia but it’s cold 🥶 in the Northern Hemisphere and the issues of winter can be extremely bad for your skin. Some issues include: 🧚♀️ Transdermal Water loss Transepidermal water loss or TEWL refers to the skin's deprivation of water due to arid winter conditions. The drier the skin is genetically, or if you have a skin disorder, the more dramatic the symptoms. For especially dry areas, smooth on a petroleum based ointment like LUCAS' PAPAW REMEDIES - Lucas' Papaw Ointment Lip Balm it’s my go to lip balm 💋 🧚♀️ Icy Wind A major contributor to TEWL is the icy wind. The icy gales can aggravate skin and pull any moisture from your skin. I like to hydrate well in Winter ❄️ I noticed having just come out of the colder months here in Oz, I was using two moisturisers a day in Winter. Neutrogena - Neutrogena Hydroboost Water Gel Moisturizer and Auqest 5 Second Wrinkle Cream. I’ve trimmed down my day routine and currently use CeraVe - CeraVe Moisturising Cream☺️ 🧚♀️ Sun Exposure on an Icy Day The sun doesn't necessarily stop shining simply because snow is falling. Never skip sunscreen, snow reflects up to 80% of UV light so your hit twice by the same rays. 😱 I use BANANA BOAT - Ultra Sport Sunscreen lotion broad spectrum, SPF 50 I’ve been looking for a new product but I’ll use what I have before trialling a few recommendations from other beauty’s. The higher your SPF the better. 🤗 🧚♀️Extreme temperature shifts Very cold weather and icy wind gusts combined with lack of humidity, forced heat, hot baths and going outside for any length of time can accumulate to TEWL. Skin doesn't respond well to extreme temperatures, especially when exposed to both heat and cold in a short period of time. During winter make sure you wash with tepid or lukewarm water and use a cleanser designed for sensitive skin. I have mature combination skin and use acwell - Licorice pH Balancing Cleansing Toner Exposing your skin to hot water can aggravate cold skin. 🧚♀️Lack of humidity The base level of humidity is a significant factor in maintaining hydrated skin. The drop in humidity in winter and the over heating of rooms can seriously dry out your skin. I’d suggest getting a humidifier in winter and why not drop a few drops of your favourite essential oil. 😉 Also hydrate well and ensure your products have ingredients like ceramides and emollients that keep skin from losing its moisture on cold dry days. 😁 I’ve realised writing this post that I’ve stripped down my skincare routine significantly as it’s gotten warmer. But I’m lucky that my fundamental products can be used during both seasons. What products do you use through the winter and summer months. Drop a comment below. 😉 Have a wonderful evening!

My Auquest 5 Second Wrinkle Cream 3 Month Trial
Hey Beauty’s 🙋🏽♀️ I hope everyone had a safe and happy New Years Day! I’ve been trying to get this post up for a few days but I’ve been a bit lazy. I won’t lie 😂😂😂 I started using Auquest 5 Second Wrinkle Cream as my day cream October 12. I did a review and although it didn’t have results i. 5 seconds the ingredients had me intrigued. 🧐 it contains 21 peptides, fish carp, silk peptide, placental tissue and hydrolysed elastin. It’s a powerful antioxidant and it’s meant to promote the skins resilience against ageing. It’s meant to effectively reduce fine lines and wrinkles, lift, firm and improve loose skin. My thoughts 💭 I really wanted to love this cream but after 3 months I haven’t seen any noticeable results. 😞 I did a 4 week update and had improvement in my wrinkles but I also use a lot of other serums so it may not have been the moisturiser. I see why peeps do a full trial before giving reviews. ☺️ I added Neutrogena - Neutrogena Hydroboost Water Gel Moisturizer for additional hydration last month and continued to apply the Auquest Cream daily so I did expect some sort of result. An improvement at the very least. Unfortunately this product didn’t work for me and I purchased another one for trial purposes. I’ll add it to my collection of giveaway products. 👏🏽👏🏽👏🏽👏🏽 it didn’t work for me but it may work for another beauty. 😉 I have mature skin with deep wrinkles, I’m 45, didn’t take care of my skin in my younger years and am now on my journey to try and repair the damage. 😃 I use The Ordinary - Hyaluronic Acid 2% + B5 daily and have seen an immediate improvement when applying so when measuring the moisturisers efficacy it didn’t stand out. Have a wonderful day and hit me up by commenting below if you have any questions. Have you used Auquests 5 second Wrinkle Cream, yes or no? And did it work for you? Cheers 🥂 Jade
learning to love baths?
trying to become a bath person this coming year! anyone have any tips? used this bargain bath bomb yesterday — super vivid color, no staining, very light chocolate scent. (also tagging some of the skincare stuff i’m using these days, but that routine needs an update...) what do you love about baths? what would you recommend to someone who wants to enjoy them more? 🛁
Breakouts? Purging? Gone for $4!
With college starting up again, it wasn’t just the workload that was a problem: I was breaking out from stress! But whenever I have a breakout, I use the Clearasil - Rapid Rescue Deep Treatment Wash But first, lets talk about Salicylic Acid: ￼￼￼Salicylic acid is an acid that helps break down dirt and can clean the pores. Its pretty common in lots of skincare products now. ￼￼￼This cleanser has a pretty high amount of salicylic acid in it= 2%. While it may not seem like much at first, it is one of the highest percentages of salicylic acid in a cleansers from what i had seen (for reference the Clinique Acne Cleanser <which I got a lot to say about that one, but ill save that for another post> has 1% of salicylic acid) This makes it a pretty strong cleanser, and therefore you should use with caution ￼￼￼Salicylic acid might not be the best for sensitive skin, and this cleanser advises to avoid the eye area because the skin there is very delicate. Salicylic acid can be a bit drying, but a good moisturizer and a hydrating serum (like hyaluronic acid) can stop the dryness. If you use retinol, you definitely want to use a hyaluronic acid serum anyway. Salicylic Acid (along with glycolic acid, adapalene, and retinol, to name a few) may cause skin sensitivity, so be mindful of how many active products you use+ the times you use them and always wear a good sunscreen. ￼￼￼If you want to try it, use it on a small bit of your face, and make sure you moisturize well! Btw: there is a bit of fragrance added in, but because the cleanser isnt on for long and not very noticeable, I dont personally mind. Cetearyl alcohol is in here too, but it’s not as drying and bad for skin than other types of alcohols (cough Clinique). Salicylic acid is a bit drying though, but even with dry skin, you can hydrate well. How I use this: ￼￼￼I use a regular face soap to cleanse my skin, and on certain days where I notice I have a breakout, I’ll also do the Clearasil cleanser. A little goes a long way, and after massaging it in a little, I’ll actually leave it on. I only leave it on for a very short period, think a minute or two, and then wash it off. ￼￼￼I had a skin purging recently on my face, and I used the cleanser on the area. After washing it off, I saw a big difference and the bumps weren’t as apparent. I used my moisturizer and used sunscreen during the day, and noticed that because of the cleanser, I wasn’t having as strong looking purging. I had some body acne on my shoulder, which this cleanser also got rid of, making it an option for people to use if they find this cleanser too strong for their faces! Overall, I would rate this because of how well it works. Its $4 which is really good, and it lasts a long time. I recommend this to people who want a quick way to control acne, as long as they use other products (like hydrating and sunscreen) with it!

Micellar Water for the win!!!
This stuff is AMAZING! Works so well to remove makeup and mascara and super inexpensive! I get mine from WalMart but you can get it from other places too! GARNIER - SkinActive Micellar Cleansing Water All-in-1 Cleanser & Waterproof Makeup Remover
micellar cleansing water: empty and newbie
Today I want to talk about micellar cleansing water! It’s a no-rinse makeup remover and face cleanser that is extremely gentle in the skin. Since there is no need to rinse it, you can continue on with your skincare routine, or what I like to do is remove my eye makeup with the micellar water and then do a double cleanser. Sometimes you just need that extra cleanse! I’ve had my GARNIER - SkinActive Micellar Cleansing Water All-in-1 Cleanser & Waterproof Makeup Remover for about a year and it’s finally empty! This micellar water removes even the most stubborn face makeup, and I’ve loved how gentle it is on my eyes and my skin. It’s so easy to use and it’s lasted me so long so what’s not to love! I’ve heard good things about the GARNIER - SkinActive Micellar Cleansing Water with Rose Waterso I wanted to try it out. I will do a review about this soon! You can pick up both of these products at your local drugstore, and they’re fairly cheap at between $6 and $10.

I got an allergic reaction to my entire routine!
So 2 years ago I woke up with my entire face swollen, red and dry. I had nothing else on my body so it had to be due to something in my face skincare routine. After going to the doctor and getting a steroid shot, I was advised by the allergist to patch test all the products i was using. The result: I WAS ALLERGIC TO ALL OF THEM This was especially weird because I had been using some of these products for over 2 years, but apparently it’s called contact dermatitis. These were the products I used: LA ROCHE-POSAY - Effaclar Purifying Foaming Gel -this one was recommended to me by my dermatologist. I don’t know that it was anything specifically about this cleanser that made me have the reaction but it was just too strong for my sensitive skin THAYERS - Witch Hazel Astringent - my theory is that this caused my reaction, because I had only been using it for 2 days before I woke up looking like a monster lol. it's still weird that it made me sensitive to my other products as well. Now I know that witch hazel is extremely sensitizing and will never use it again. CeraVe - CeraVe Moisturising Cream - I don’t see anything wrong with this product in terms of ingredients, but i tried it again recently and got a similar reaction, so I guess it’s just not for me Now it’s been 2 years since all of this happened, and I was slowly able to build up a routine that isn’t sensitizing to my already sensitive skin (check out my last post to see it!) Let mw know if you have any questions/comments/feedback :)
PLEASE HELP ❗️❗️❗️❗️
Recently, I have been experiencing terrible breakouts around my cheek, ear and jawline area. They are super painful and when they heal they leave behind terrible dark spots. This has taken a serious toll on my mental health and self esteem. If there is any products, diet of habits that you recommend for my struggle with acne please let me know. Thank you! These are the products I use in the Am: PLANTS FOR SKIN - African Black Soap Face and Body Bar THAYERS - Witch Hazel Astringent CeraVe - AM Facial Moisturizing Lotion SPF 30 Pm routine: PanOxyl - Acne Foaming Wash Benzoyl Peroxide 10% Maximum Strength THAYERS - Witch Hazel Astringent Cetaphil - Cetaphil Moisturizing Cream My exfoliants: TATCHA - The Rice Polish Foaming Enzyme Powder THE BODY SHOP - Vitamin C Glow-Revealing Liquid Peel Products I used in the past (that didn’t work) CeraVe - SA Smoothing Cleanser CeraVe - Hydrating Facial Cleanser bliss - Glow & Hydrate Day Serum bliss - Renew & Smooth Night Serum The Ordinary - Alpha Lipoic Acid 5%
Camping routine for acne prone skin 🏕
Desperate times call for desperate measures. I really love camping, but the risk of breaking out is so much higher for me when I’m camping and don’t have access to my full routine. I did a bunch of research before my latest trip on the necessities and ways to cut corners in my routine without doing any damage to my skin. This routine was based off of three things objectives: It needed to keep my acne at bay. I wanted it be simple and use the smallest amount of water as possible (we had to ration our big jug of water). I wanted to use as many drugstore products as possible because they are the easiest to replace if something were to break / go missing. My products: BIODERMA - Sensibio H2O Soothing Micellar Cleansing Water- amazing product and it helped take off all my makeup at night time. I opted for this over a cleansing balm in an attempt to conserve water. Benzagel - Acne Washhttps://benzagel.ca/product/acne-wash/ - I used this morning and night to help reduce chances of getting acne. I typically only use this at night, but this weekend I used it in both routines because 1) I could only fit one face wash and 2) I was really stressed about getting acne from my simplified routine and the extra bad food and drinks that we were having all weekend. Neutrogena - Neutrogena Hydroboost Water Gel Moisturizer(fragrance free version) - My love for this moisturizer is very pure. It was kept my skin moisturized all day and night and it’s so affordable. A great choice for weekend trips. LA ROCHE-POSAY - Anthelios 50 Mineral Ultra Light Sunscreen Fluid SPF 50- I used this sunscreen on my face all weekend. It kept my skin dewy-looking and protected. It’s super lightweight and didn’t cause any break outs. Plus it’s a super travel-friendly (small) bottle. Neutrogena - Hydro Boost Water Gel Sunscreen Lotion SPF 30- Loved using this sunscreen for my body, because it kept me protected from a sunburn, melts so easily into the skin and it also felt like it helped keep skin a little moisturized. Especially when I’m travelling light, I like products like this because it feels a little bit like a two-in-one moisturizer and spf. I wouldn’t suggest depending on this long term as a lotion, but in a pinch, I think it does the job. Plus it’s so affordable. The results: Skin was definitely not in the best shape when I got home (I used an acid toner to help with some texture and a vitamin c to help brighten) but my biggest relief is I had no pimples!! 🎉
Current PM Routine
I’m very early in my journey of finding the right products for my skin and clearing my acne. I currently love theCeraVe - Skin Renewing Night Cream My skin can be angry with pimples and redness but by morning redness is minimum and dryness gone. I also love MARIO BADESCU - Mario Badescu Drying Lotion for treating active acne. This lotion seriously reduces the life and size of pimples overnight. All other products pictured above I’m still experimenting with and very open to suggestions for my combination, acne-prone, aging, dull and rough skin.

If You Have Acne-prone Skin, Give CeraVe A Go! 👇🏼👇🏼👇🏼
I have combo-oily and acne-prone skin (oily in summer and dry in winter), so I focus more on skincare products that can help to repair the skin barrier and fight the annoying acne. 😫😫 I was recommended CeraVe products, which is said to be an excellent option for those that need help repairing a damaged moisture barrier. Here is my review of 3 products I've tried: CeraVe - PM Facial Moisturizing Lotion It's xcellent for all skin types, particularly dehydrated skin in need of barrier recover. It works well on hydration, and its not greasy at all! I can use it in the summer! I usually have three pumps to apply and massage to make it soaks into my face. I have to say that I didn't see a significant difference in brightening skin tone, but it's useful in treating acne and repairing skin. The fact that it has 4% niacinamide with glycerin, hyaluronic acid & 3 types of ceramides makes this holy grail status for me. But It may stings at first use, so build tolerance first. CeraVe - Daily Moisturizing Lotion For Normal To Dry Skin This is a pretty light lotion and perfect for people who don’t like the tacky or sticky feelings of moisturizers. I love to use it in summer, and it absorbs very quickly. It doesn't sit on the skin, and the skin kind of drinks it in. My facial skin feels plumped and well-hydrated. This lotion contains ceramides that support hydration and protects overall skin wellness. I would highly recommend it to anyone on a budget as it’s inexpensive yet very effective. CeraVe - Hydrating Facial Cleanser The cleanser is a Life Saver when my skin breakouts and irritated. This cleanser has 3 essential ceramides that protect and build the skin barrier and helps retain moisture at the same time. They also help to protect the skin from environmental aggressors such as pollution and irritations, that can cause sensitivity, redness and dryness. Since I have combo-oily skin, I added it to my PM skincare routine and it can leave my face clean and soft. I'm beyond happy with this brand and will forever repurchase! Considering the effectiveness and prices, I would 10/10 recommend it to anyone having acne-prone skin like me!🥰🥰🥰
CeraVe-Daily Moisturizing Lotion For Normal To Dry Skin
Product that helped ME with acne!
CeraVe - AM Facial Moisturizing Lotion SPF 30 This product worked miracles for my skin, and got rid of my pimples when nothing else was helping. I used this both morning and night as a moisturizer, and it helped me so much. You can find this on amazon, or many drugstores, and is pretty affordable for a sunscreen/moisturizer. ⚠️❗️PLEASE keep in mind that the products that work for me, may not work for everyone. Everyone’s skin is different, and I cannot promise you that this will work. :) Cetaphil - Daily Facial Cleanser This is the cleanser I use twice a day. I have oily skin, so the dryness that some people might feel when using this didn’t really effect me, but if you have dryer skin, I would recommend the: Cetaphil - Gentle Skin Cleanser or the CeraVe - Hydrating Facial Cleanser I really hope this helped anyone struggling with their skin!! Remember, acne doesn’t make you any less beautiful ♥️
CeraVe-AM Facial Moisturizing Lotion SPF 30

Cetaphil-Cetaphil Moisturizing Lotion
Skin Concerns: sensitive skin
Skin type: fair to light Skin issues: rosacea, eczema, dry skin and oily t-zones I’ve been suffering with rosacea, eczema for the last six years. If you don’t know much about rosacea it’s when your skin is red and causes visble blood vessels around the central part of your face, nose and cheeks. It also causes bumps that look like acne but are actually a form of rash that is itchy, irritating and can leave scars. If you get a flare up it can last for a week to months. The flare ups (redness,rashes) can be so bad you have to take a round of antibiotics for a month to calm it down😭. Flare ups of Redness and rosacea rash can come from eating certain foods that are spicy, sunlight exposure, alcohol 🍺 and various cosmetic products especially those that contain alcohol, Witch hazel, Menthol, Camphor, Peppermint, Eucalyptus oil, Fragrances, and Propylene glycol. Even though I have done a lot of research web trying to find out what ingredients cause flare ups it’s different for each person. So what I do is when I get a new product I test a small section of my face before i apply the product all over, to see if I have a reaction or not. Cetaphil cleanser is actually one of the products that my Dermatologist recommended for me. It says it’s for all skin types, on the back it even says for even the most sensitive skin. Unfortunately, knowing what I know now I look at the ingredients of products even if they are recommended for me by a dermatologist. Cetaphil contains alcohol which is horrible for people with dry skin or rosacea. I used Cetaphil cleanser for a few weeks I should have stopped after the first week. Being naïve I thought that the The dermatologist wouldn’t recommend a product if she didn’t believe in it and she also wouldn’t recommend something that cause me any more issues. It was one of the worse products I have tried. It felt like it stripped my face from all moisture, it caused dry patches and also caused a bad rosacea flare up.It was so bad I didn’t want to leave my house and putting on foundation or any product to cover it up just made it worse. I made my final appointment with that dermatologist and she then prescribe me doxycycline 100 milligrams twice a day, for a month. My face did clear up after a month of taking doxycycline, and I found a new dermatologist. I gave this product a 1/5 star because I feel like it’s very misleading and not meant for people with sensitive skin as it claims. I would not recommend Cetaphil for people with sensitive skin, dry skin or people with rosacea. If you are suffering with rosacea I would love to know some products that have worked for you.
