my favorite hydrating cleanser

I’ve been meaning to do a review of this since I got this a couple months ago because it has truly transformed my skin! Ever since I destroyed my skin barrier by spending too much time under the sun while on vacation, I knew I had to switch up my CeraVe - Foaming Facial Cleanser For Normal To Oily Skin
for a more gently and hydrating cleanser. I loved my CeraVe cleanser, however, because of my destroyed moisture barrier, I wanted something that wasn’t going to be as stripping as a foaming cleanser, especially as the weather was becoming cooler and more dry. So I decided to buy the LA ROCHE-POSAY - Toleriane Hydrating Gentle Face Cleanser
and it has done wonders for my face! As you can see it has a milky, gel-like texture and it doesn’t foam, so it’s not as stripping. It has a number of great ingredients including glycerin, ceramide-3, their prebiotic thermal water, and niacinamide to help you build a hydrated skin barrier. It is oil-free and suitable for sensitive skin. They claim it’s for normal to dry skin, but it also works for my combo/oily skin as well! I use this morning and night (I use my BOBBI BROWN - Soothing Face Cleanser Oil
as a first cleanse and the La Roche-Posay as my second cleanse at night), and it always leaves my skin feeling smooth and supple. And it can be bought at your local drugstore for $14.99! If you’ve been looking for an affordable, hydrating cleanser, try out this amazing cleanser!

Check out my skin journey in only 2 weeks!
Back story: Back at the beginning of November I had been on curology for the second time and it made my face feel worse, the face wash didn’t make my face feel clean so I bought one they recommended (Neutrogena - Ultra Gentle Daily Cleanser ) I continued to use the formula they gave me and it was just not for me. November 26 I spoke to my doctor and told her what I was going through and she put me on Doxycycline which helped with stopping the bacteria from producing but I still had the blemishes I had. I was desperate by this time, I didn’t know what to believe from youtubers(most are paid or sponsored= no trust from me) nor anything posted online and I was not about to try a million product because I know it takes time. That is when I came across this site and I started reading some real life stories and what people like me were going through! I saw some products that these people were using and I decided to give it a shot! Thank you to the ladies who posted their story! Your transparency and selflessness has help me with my confidence and most importantly my skin! Xoxo Story time! As you can see on December 20th my skin was nothing but clogged and congested. My self esteem was at an all time low. I would purposely avoid hanging out with my friends, I hated how make up would look covering the acne, I was honestly just not in a good place. I started reading stories from people like me and they were using CeraVe - Foaming Facial Cleanser For Normal To Oily Skin and CeraVe - SA Lotion For Rough & Bumpy Skin so I decided to give it a shot! On December 26 I decided to go to Walgreens and pick it up. Christmas was the day before and I was tired of how I was feeling (I was shying away from the camera with my own family and thats just not me, I wanted to go back to feeling like my best self) I followed my skin regimen religiously! After my shower I would brush my teeth and then wash my face and apply some lotion. At night I would do the same thing! Fun fact: I like to change my pillow cases every two days-week. First thing I noticed after the face wash is how clean my face felt but it didn’t feel dried out or congested it actually felt like soft skin. Jan 3: A week after I started using the face wash and lotion I started to notice the congested parts of my face were coming out. Jan 6: Like they say it has to get worse before it gets better. I thought I was reacting badly to the products but I read a little more and purging is real! Jan 7: My skin started calming down a bit with the redness but what had to come out came out! If you are going through this process dont get discouraged keep your skin care routine consistent! Jan 10: still have some blemishes but you can see the softness glow! I posted the pictures I posted with the dates so you guys can see the process. We are sharing the good, the bad, and the ugly not just the pretty!

Pleasantly Surprised
So I purchased this cleanser about a week ago in Walmart. I honestly bought it because I saw it was only $6 & I have a major spending problem whenever I walk into the beauty/skincare section of any store 😬 e.l.f. - Superclarify Cleanser I expected it to be a crappy, cheap cleanser that would probably make me break out. HOWEVER, I was so, very wrong. Before buying this cleanser, I had been using CeraVe - Foaming Facial Cleanser For Normal To Oily Skin for months. It performs well, I wouldn’t call it amazing but it does it’s job & hasn’t caused me any issues. Lately I was testing out some primers & other products that have actually caused me to breakout just because my skin was probably like chillll, I wanna breathe! The Cerave cleanser usually gets rid of my pimples fairly easily, but it does take a couple of days. This ELF cleanser got rid of all my recent pimples on the first use. Literally. I couldn’t believe it! It comes in this off white milky gel-like cream that foams up a little as you use it. I can’t tell you have surprised I am with this stuff! My face is literally clear! & smooth! & it’s only $6! It also has Niacinamide in it, which is an all around amazing ingredient. It helps calm your face & prevent redness as well as texture. Elf has done it again for me, made an amazing product at an even more amazing price! Try it guys! Seriously!!! That’s all for now 👋🏻 Talk to you guys later! 💖 💋 @cherie@Cheriebeauty@CheriePick

works well and lasts for so long
The BOBBI BROWN - Soothing Face Cleanser Oil has been a staple in my skincare routine ever since I started my beauty journey this past summer. My mom bought this a few years back and neither of us really used it, so once I learned about double cleansing, I decided to use this since I already had it in my house. And I was not disappointed! This oil cleanser contains: 💫 Kukui Nut 💫 White Water Lily 💫 Goji Berry Extract 💫 Jasmine Flower 💫 Vitamin E 💫 Yeast Berry Extract 💫 Sunflower Oil 💫 Olive Oil 💫 Jojoba Oil And is free of ❌ Parabens ❌Phthalates ❌ Sulfates ❌ Animal Derived Ingredients ❌ Gluten, Sulfites ❌ Mineral Oil ❌ Tricolsan ❌ Formaldehyde The ingredients all smell amazing (no added fragrance!) and are incredibly soothing and great for deep cleansing! It feels so luxurious on my face! I can feel the products and dirt on my face pilling off as I rub it into my skin. I use this cleanser every night, using a few pumps on my dry face before washing it off and following with my LA ROCHE-POSAY - Toleriane Hydrating Gentle Face Cleanser . I’ve been using this cleanser every night for at least 8 months and I still have a good amount left! This 200ml bottle costs $50, and given that it’s lasted me so long and has provided great results, I’d say it’s pretty worth the money. I love trying new products so I may not repurchase this immediately, but it’s definitely a contender for a repurchase!

Current nighttime routine with retinoid
I have oily and acne-prone skin with enlarged pores. So here’s what I use to take care of my skin issues: 1. First cleanse with BOBBI BROWN - Soothing Face Cleanser Oil (not pictured) to clear the gunk from my pores. I do a little face massage with this cleansing oil before I hop in the shower. 2. Second cleanse with CeraVe - Foaming Facial Cleanser For Normal To Oily Skin (not pictured) to really get a deep clean for my skin. This face wash is great for removing that nasty dirt and oil while still maintaining your skin barrier. 3. I use PAULA'S CHOICE - Skin Balancing Oil-Reducing Cleanser as my toner. I tap my face lightly with a face towel so that it’s still damp, and go in with a cotton pad (I need to switch to something more sustainable, I know, I’m working on it!) and swipe the toner all over my face. I don’t really notice any visible difference when I don’t use the toner, but I guess it helps my other skincare products absorb better. 4. While my face is still damp, I go in withThe Ordinary - Hyaluronic Acid 2% + B5 . It does a lovely job of plumping and hydrating my skin to the max! 5. I tap The Ordinary - Niacinamide 10% + Zinc 1% on top of that (just on my normally oily T-zone). 6. I moisturize my entire face with CeraVe - PM Facial Moisturizing Lotion to create a barrier between my skin and my retinoid. 7. Apply a thin layer of #Perrigo - Tretinoin Cream 0.1%[products]#[FiveStars] as my acne and pore treatment. A lot of people recommend using BHAs or AHAs but while you’re using something like a retinoid, it’s really not necessarily and possibly even harmful to your skin if they’re used in conjunction with one another. 8. Sometimes I’ll apply another layer of my PM moisturizer if I feel I really need it. 9. And finally I seal all of that goodness in with Aquaphor - Healing Ointment Skin Protectant And voila! I wake up with oil-free and dewy skin 🥰

Cherie Made Me Buy It 🍒
Hi Cherie Fam! I can’t believe it’s the last day of 2020! I’m a bit upset because I had plans to go to a friend’s house and do a low key kick back, but I decided not to go because I haven’t received my COVID test results yet 😢 looks like it’s going to be a low key night, but at least I’m helping flatten the curve? I have seen this product trending on here for quite some time. I did some research and read/watched hundreds of reviews and a lot seem to be fond of this cleanser. I decided to take advantage of their Black Friday sale and purchased this huge bottle (400ml) for $14.99 + 20% off. This cleanser is made for normal to dry skin and contains ceramides, niacinamide and glycerin. This also contains prebiotic thermal water. I love the milky cream texture of this cleanser and how gentle it is. My face never feels stripped right after washing. What I love about this product is that it’s specified for my skin type. They have the same cleanser made specifically for oily and combination skin while the DE Beste claims their cleanser works for all skin types LA ROCHE-POSAY - Toleriane Hydrating Gentle Face Cleanser I’ve been using DE Beste Jelly Cleanser for about 2 years now. I love this cleanser for the same reasons: gentle and removes all the grime of the day. This cleanser has glycerin, like the Toleriane one, but doesn’t contain niacinamide or ceramides. It does contain cantaloupe fruit extracts however. This retails for $32 for 150 ml of product. I’m not good at math but that’s double the price of the toleriane cleanser with less product. DRUNK ELEPHANT - Beste No. 9 Jelly Cleanser Deluxe Sample I wouldn’t say the 2 products are a dupe of each other. However, they both worked on my skin. If anything I prefer the toleriane cleanser because it contains niacinamide and is much better on my wallet. The beste cleanser is a great product, but expensive for what is is. Tbh I’ve been trying to taper off DE because while their products helped my skin so much, I dislike how atrocious their customer service are and hate their superiority complex. Conclusion: if you want a gentle cleanser that will remove your makeup and all the dirt and won’t strip your skin, both of these products are for you! However, La Roche-Posay’s cleanser is much cheaper and works just as great as the Drunk Elephant one Happy new year! Xoxo, Francesca 💋

The CeraVe hydrating facial cl
The CeraVe hydrating facial cleanser is a very gentle face wash that is great for dry, sensitive skin. The cleanser is very creamy. It almost feels like I’m putting a very watered down moisturizer on my face to cleanse it. I truly believe that it has worked wonders on my sensitive and dry skin. I have notice that my acne has gone away and my skin feels much more hydrated due to the ceramides in the cleanser that helps lock in the moisture. I would definitely recommend this product to anyone who had sensitive skin. My sister has very oily skin and she did not like this cleanser, but everyone’s skin is different. I think this product is worth the $11.99 price tag. I love it! CeraVe - Hydrating Face Cleanser For Normal To Dry Skin

Drugstore cleanser for oily - combo skin
Drugstore cleanser for oily - combo skin
Never thought I'd fall in love with this drugstore cleanser. Summer is here and I swear this stuff works so well with the current weather we're having. FYI, i do have sensitve, oily/combo skin. to the skincare gals & pals out there, this is a total STEAL! I used this when I was breaking out like crazy because of hormonal and mask wearing. Been using this for about a week and my pimples shrunk, helped my pimple marks fade and not a single breakout in sight! It's fragrance free and lathers pretty well, my skin did not feel tight or dried out after using it which is a plus. Definitely a staple piece for a low buy. If you have dry skin I probably wouldn't recommend this for you since it can be drying to your skin and might cause your skin to be flakey and tight in a bad way ✌🏻

Need an amazing cleanser? Look no further!
Who else has a significant other who isn’t as into skincare as you are but you still want them to take care of their skin? I do! My boyfriend, who has sensitive acne-prone skin, refuses to do an elaborate routine with more than 5 steps, so I created a simple routine for him. We went through a lot of trial-and-error with cleansers. It was either too drying, too harsh, or made his skin worse. So I switched to this simple, gentle, non-fragranced cleanser and now it’s the only cleanser I buy for him. (It has also helped clear up his skin immensely! All he uses is this and an Aveeno moisturizer.) He is not the only one who uses this cleanser. I find myself using this periodically because of how amazing it is! It foams up nicely, is not stripping nor is it irritating, and does exactly what we would want from a cleanser. It is affordable and can easily be purchased online/in-person. If you need a gentle cleanser, I definitely recommend CeraVe - Foaming Facial Cleanser For Normal To Oily Skin !

My first beauty post on here!!😄 My name is Zeina and I recently started getting into skincare and was not using a facial cleanser before unfortunately. I went to the dermatologist a while ago and he gave me a free sample of La Roche-Posay’s Toleriane Purifying Foaming Cleanser since he knew I had combination skin. I tried it out and I absolutely loved it! It cleans my skin so well and does not leave me irritated at all! I love the ingredients in this product and how it advocates for people with sensitive skin. It costs about $15 and I use it day and night. I highly recommend this if you have sensitive, oily skin :)
