Dermatologist tips on pores!
FACTS ABOUT PORES: Pore size is affected by: ✔️ Age ✔️ Sun exposure overtime ✔️ Genetics ✔️ Skin type For these reasons, it is not possible to shrink pores, but these products can help minimize the appearance of pores (I listed different options to choose from in each category. One from each category is all that would be needed): 1. Sunscreen ✔️ SPF 30 or higher in the morning, reapply every 2 hours (can use setting powder to reapply!) CeraVe - Face Sheer Tint Hydrating Sunscreen SPF 30 LA ROCHE-POSAY - Anthelios Ultra Fluid Face Lotion SPF 50+ Supergoop! - 100% Mineral Invincible Setting Powder SPF 45 2. Salicylic acid cleanser ✔️ Once a day ✔️ Treatment for acne CeraVe - Salicylic Acid Facial Cleanser THE inkey LIST - Salicylic Acid Acne + Pore Cleanser 3. Retinoids/retinol ✔️ Takes ~12 weeks to see an effect ✔️ Treatment for acne ❗️Acne may get worse before it gets better ❗️Only at night, must wear sunscreen during the day ❌ Avoid in pregnancy and breastfeeding DIFFERIN - 0.1% Adapalene Acne Treatment Gel Pump LA ROCHE-POSAY - Effaclar Adapalene Gel .01% Topical Retinoid Acne Treatment ❗️Sensitive skin may not be able to use salicylic acid cleanser and retinol/retinoid together at night (may be too irritating) ✔️ For sensitive skin: can consider salicylic acid cleanser in the morning & retinol/retinoid at night It can take weeks to months to start noticing a difference, patience is 🔑 What works to help decrease the appearance of your pores?

Differin progress... is this a purge or what?
Sorry this is gross.. I know my skin isn’t pretty right now. Today marks the 4th week I’ve been on DIFFERIN - 0.1% Adapalene Acne Treatment Gel Pump and also my new birth control (yaz). I have literally never, EVER seen my skin this awful and angry. Should I stick it out until the and of 12 weeks? Does this look like a purge or just a flat out breakout?! I’m freaking out.. I don’t even want to go outside looking like this. I’m also using Cetaphil - Cetaphil Moisturizing Cream am and pm, and cleansing with CeraVe - Hydrating Facial Cleanser . Not looking to add any more products. Sometimes I use a hydrating toner. The dryness and peeling has subsided but the pimples do hurt, my cheeks are tender to the touch and sometimes itchy but that has gotten better over time also. Please help!!!!! EDIT: i just bought the DIFFERIN - Daily Deep Cleanser BPO 5%, Neutrogena - On-the-Spot Acne Treatmentand HERO COSMETICS - Mighty Patch Original for Madewellto hopefully combat the horrible breakouts pictured above. just praying it doesnt over dry my skin.

I just finished theSupergoop! - Play Everyday Lotion SPF 50 With Sunflower Extract Here’s why I’m giving it a 3/5 stars. Texture: slightly oily but blends well and has no white cast Smell: sunflower essential oil smell. Kinda like tea tree. My skin type: oily and acne prone When I use it: daily or twice a day. I apply it on as part of my morning skincare routine. I wanted to give this product a 5/5 when I first got it but after using it for a while, I started to notice that this product was not good for my skin type. It did not make me break out at all which is a very good thing because my skin is acne prone. Pro: Right when I apply it in the morning, it made me face look dewy and fresh but.. Con: it does leave and build up a heavy oily layer on my face throughout the day which did not feel good on my face. Between reapplying every 2 hours, that layer made me look really oily. Pros: I really liked the smell because I very dislike the smell of regular spf sunscreens so much. This spf was the first that I’ve used that doesn’t smell like regular ones. The smell of this product was pleasant and not overwhelming. Does this product do the job? In my opinion, I think this spf does a great job in protecting my skin because I could see my acne scars and dark spots fading away. I did not get sunburns on my face as I usually would if I’m in the sun without spf. Overall, if you have oily skin, I would not recommend it. However, if you like an spf that doesn’t smell like regular spf and love a dewy look then I would recommend it. It pairs really well with Supergoop! - 100% Mineral Invincible Setting Powder SPF 45 I use the shade medium. It leaves a matte finish which is great for my oily T-zone. MAKE SURE TO WEAR SUNSCREEN EVERYDAY!!! Because what’s the point of doing your skincare routine if you’re not going to protect your skin :) sn
Briannaxliv Recommended👍Must Have at SEPHORA❤️ I tried them and found...
The beauty blogger Briannaxliv shares her favorite skin care product that she brought from Sephora! I'm so excited to not only share her love products with you guys but also with my personal review! Hope this information can be helpful to you! Let's see what's her skincare loves!❤️ 👍First Aid Beauty -- KP BUMP ERASER BODY SCRUB 10% AHA $28: FIRST AID BEAUTY - KP Bump Eraser Body Scrub with 10% AHA Keratosis Pilaris (KP) is a common skin condition that causes dry, rough patches and tiny bumps. First Aid Beauty's fast-acting KP body scrub reveals healthier-looking skin with Glycolic and Lactic Acids at a combined level of 10% to help loosen the skin’s top layer while also decongesting pores with pumice buffing beads, delivering the benefits of a chemical peel and microdermabrasion treatment in one. 💋Briannaxliv's Review: Best for the small bumps on her thighs and arms. She feels this is the best money she has ever spent. You won't be disappointed to try this product. 💕My Review: As what's she feels, this product really works! But for my personal feeling, maybe it is because the bump issue on my arm is not serious, I can see my bump issue has been relieved but this product is not able to eliminate the problem. If you have serious bump issues, this product is definitely worth trying! 👍Youth to the People -- Adaptogen Deep Moisture Cream $58: YOUTH TO THE PEOPLE - Adaptogen Deep Moisture Cream with Ashwagandha + Reishi A deeply hydrating moisturizer with superior plant extracts and a pro-grade peptide complex formulated for dry, reactive, and sensitive skin. Fragrance-free formula made with an intelligent hydration trio of Squalane, Jojoba + Shea butter for long-lasting deep hydration that won't clog pores. Adaptogenic extract blend helps skin cope with dryness, irritation, redness, and fine lines + wrinkles. 💋Briannaxliv's Review: This product is soooo underrated and is her soulmate moisturizer. Especially for someone who has a combination skin type with rosacea, this product does not only help with the redness but also super hydrating and won't break you out. 💕My Review: I'm surprised that she love this product that much. I got this product when the product first came out, but I only used it for a short time and replaced it... The texture is pretty heavy, which I think is not really good for normal oily skin type. If you have dry skin, you might love it. Also, I really really hate the smell of this product. The smell is hard to describe but is really awful to me.🤢 You might want to smell it first before you buy it. 👍Supergoop! -- 100% Mineral Invincible Setting Powder SPF45 $30: Supergoop! - 100% Mineral Invincible Setting Powder SPF 45 Reapply your SPF with a 100% mineral setting powder that mattifies shine and sets makeup. This sweat-resistant, translucent formula smooths skin’s appearance and reduces shine. 💋Briannaxliv's Review: She loves to use this as an SPF reapplied when she has her makeup on. This product is the mineral base, sweatproof, and will leave a matte finish for your makeup but only have 4 shades. 💕My Review: I love this product soooo much!!! You definitely wanna try it for sure!!! It is super convenient to take it with you and reapply your SPF anytime Just simply brush it on your face, then you will get a matte finish without ruin your makeup and added protection! The oil-control power is really nice, so if you are dry skin, I'm not recommending this to you. Another point I loved was the brush! The brush is replaceable and you can take it off to wash it clean when you feel use it too long that it might have bacteria on it. I feel really safe to take it with me! Love it! Love it! Love!👍👍👍 ❤️Hope you guys like it❤️

Lightweight & invisible SPF from the drugstore
Yes, it’s not summer anymore. BUT I’m not giving up sunscreen for the cooler months and neither should you! I love using sunscreen every single day. And I’m always on the hunt for a new one thats super lightweight but effective. This Vichy one super lightweight and great to reapply throughout the day because it just glides over makeup but... it might not be my favourite SPF. VICHY - Idéal Soleil Ultra-Light Face Sunscreen Broad Spectrum SPF 50 The good: + Glowy, but not too greasy. It does look very dewy at the beginning, but it does settle into a slightly less dewy finish. Still dewy though so if you have oily skin, just be aware of that: + This texture is like a very light liquid, not like a lotion. And because of this texture it is so easy to slide over the skin. + Although the colour is white at first, it does turn invisible on the skin pretty quickly. I don’t experience any white cast. + Sinks into the skin super easily and doesn’t pill or affect your makeup application. + This is great to reapply over your makeup throughout the day because it just glides over whatever is on your face and since it’s invisible, it doesn’t affect the colours of the makeup that you have on. + A super accessible product that you can pick up at almost any drugstore. It’s around $25 depending on where you purchase it which isn’t too cheap but feels like a fair price. + Provides broad spectrum protection against UVA (which lead to aging) and UVB (which lead to burns) rays. + I love how thin and sleek the packaging is. It would be great to throw in a bag or purse when travelling or for a day trip. + It’s fragrance free and oil free for my sensitive or acne prone friends. The not so good: - I do have a TINY bit of skin irritation from this product. Just a tiny bit of stinging. It’s not enough for me to stop using the product but still.. probably not the best thing. - If you have oily skin, you may want to go for a more matte product just to be safe. And if you apply over your makeup you may want to use some powder to mattify the look. Worth it? I do think it’s worth the price for $25! It’s a good amount of product and the product is effective and very pleasant to use (aside from the stinging). Will I repurchase? I honestly think I won’t and may opt for the LA ROCHE-POSAY - Anthelios Ultra Fluid Face Lotion SPF 50+instead once I run out. Just because of the skin irritation that I get. Which is sad because I think overall it’s a great product :( Ps I have combo, acne prone skin 💕
Allure beauty box first impressions 🎁
Surprised I received this box. I was going to cancel September’s box but I must’ve forgotten, not mad at the stuff included. Didn’t rate the products since I’ve never used them before. First item I saw was the elf highlighting brush. Usually elf brushes are really soft. I’m so sure it’ll be a great brush. Full size $4 e.l.f. - e.l.f. Highlighting Brush Wander beauty unleashed volume and curl mascara. I have the mile high club volume & length and I really like it. I feel like these mascaras are pretty underrated, I don’t usually see many people talking about it. Excited to use this. This is full size. $24 WANDER BEAUTY - Unlashed Volume & Curl Mascara Elemis pro collagen cleansing balm, this smells really nice. It’s a good size to try it out, 0.7 oz/ 20g. It’s supposed to melt of makeup and leave your skin really soft. Definitely want to try this out. $14 ELEMIS - Pro-Collagen Cleansing Balm Cleo noir eyeliner in purple, ok so I’m glad they didn’t send out the standard black or even brown eyeliner color. The color looks really cool and I want to try out many looks with this! This is full size. $18 CLEO NOIR - The Twist-up Liner La roche-posay anthelios light fluid spf 50, super excited about this! Not only is it reef safe I’ve heard it’s really good. Remember you need to apply spf all year long not just in the summer. The sample is small at 0.17 fl oz/ 5ml. This tiny sample would be worth about: $2.09 for 0.10oz $4.18 for 0.21oz LA ROCHE-POSAY - Anthelios Ultra Fluid Face Lotion SPF 50+ Waterless dry conditioner, this seems really cool. Instead of the dry shampoo making my hair seem straw like I’m excited to use something that moisturized my hair. This will be really useful Now since temperatures are going down. Full size is $7.99 for 3.6oz This is the 0.98oz so maybe $1.99 value WATERLESS - Dry Conditioner Weightless Smooth Glam up soothing aloe sheet mask, allure always includes a sheet mask. I’m not sure how I feel about getting a sheet mask all the time. I usually don’t use these that much. If I’m being honest I might gift this to a friend. I’m sure it must feel nice but they’re not for me. $14.20 for a set of 10. Individually $1.42 GLAM UP - Glam Up Sheet masks For $15+tax this is a really nice box. I usually recommend this box to my friends to try it out. This box would have a retail value of approximately $66-70. Definitely worth the $15 price tag. October allure beauty box will be $23+tax, not sure if I will get this.

La roche posay review
So the balm? Yes it is amazing, it is everything I always wanted in a skincare product. And it helps clear up my skin while moisturizing so double plus. No scent, and not too heavy or sticky. 5/5 The Adapalene gel. I’d give it a 4/5 because it’s not too harsh, I haven’t noticed any differences and I’ve been using it for 2 weeks. To be fair my acne hasn’t gotten worse but it hasn’t entirely gotten better. Doesn’t dry out my already dry skin too bad, I just don’t know if it’s working
Ulta & Marshall’s Hair & Skin Haul
What’s up my bargain basement bitches? Due to my recent unprecedented BREAKOUT on my damn chin/cheek/mustache area I decided it was time to use my Adult Money ™️ to purchase some new skin ~clearing~ items. Being that I work for the government, I am absolutely the furthest from raking in that dough, so bargains are v appealing to me. I’m an Ulta shopper, not sorry. I don’t give a dern about makeup and I find that Ulta has that good good, cruelty free, clean, & affordable skin care. Also fuck that elitist Sephora energy, my local Ulta has a salon in the back that I can only imagine is the equivalent of a set of Super Cuts side bangs. Featured in this haul: Ulta TULA SKINCARE - Keep It Clear Acne Foam Cleanser($34) TULA SKINCARE - The Cult Classic Purifying Face Cleanser (free sample) LA ROCHE-POSAY - Effaclar Adapalene Gel .01% Topical Retinoid Acne Treatment($30) COSRX - Hyaluronic Acid Hydra Power Essence on sale 50% off! ($12) Marshall’s Random ass Facial Steamer ($16) “ABSOLUTEHEAT” Pro Iron Series curling wand ($20) Golden Castor Oil with eyebrow/lash brushes ($7) AQUIS - Hair Towel Waffle Luxe Moody Gray($10) I have been using FIRST AID BEAUTY - FAB Skin Lab Retinol Serumand FIRST AID BEAUTY - FAB Skin Lab Retinol Eye Cream with Triple Hyaluronic Acid which are wonderful, especially the eye cream which completely blasted the dry patch near the corner of my eye that was there for MONTHS but I felt like tapering up a bit after introducing retinol for the first time about a month and a half ago. It is also likely that the breakout on my chin/cheeks is due to the retinol serum (I currently use 2-3x wk and don’t use any actives with it except for Mad Hippie - Triple C Night Creamwhich I’m prettty sure clogs the shit out of my pores but w/e). I will post a skin check-in tomorrow & eventually review these products after I work them into my routine. So far, so good! I will say the Tula SA cleanser had a super strong tea tree fragrance which isn’t a dealbreaker for me so much as a indicator of some powerful shit. Fingers crossed this gets the pesky comedones on my chin/upper lip to dissolve 🤓. In the meantime, comment below with your favorite sheet masks to use with the face steamer! I got it for my bf mostly, as well as an extraction toolkit because he likes to take things into his own hands with his skin and I respect that- so I got him some tools that can be sterilized & keep him from poking holes his face with my stolen embroidery needles.

Just wanted to share my journey struggling with acne. Growing up I had perfect clear skin, no acne whatsoever, was comfortable going in public with no makeup on and I had a perfect complexion until I graduated high school and I started breaking out. I used to call it, puberty but backwards lol. I tried everything and nothing worked on me. I even tried changing my diet and stopped eating dairy and meat all in one but still, nothing changed. I even drank more water and that didn’t do anything either. I started watching Dr. Dray on YouTube about a couple years ago and I feel like she’s changed my routine. She says less is more and I swear by that. Remember: what works for me may not work for you. My skin is no where near perfect, but I’m extremely happy with how far I’ve come 🤍 Morning Routine: - (I try to wash my face once a day. Usually wash with only water in the morning) ￼Sometimes I use Panoxyl if I’m breaking out. ￼COSRX - Advanced Snail 96 Mucin Power Essence (On damp skin) ￼The Ordinary Hyaluronic Acid Serum ￼ The Ordinary Azelaic Acid ￼Neutrogena - Sensitive Skin Oil-Free Moisture ￼CeraVe - Face Sheer Tint Hydrating Sunscreen SPF 30 Night Time Routine: ￼CeraVe - Hydrating Facial Cleanser ￼COSRX - Advanced Snail 96 Mucin Power Essence ￼The Ordinary Niacinamide and Zinc ￼CeraVe - Resurfacing Retinol Serum ￼CeraVe - Moisturizing Cream For Normal To Dry Skin When I first started my skincare journey, I mainly started out small using cleanser, moisturizer and SPF then slowly incorporated these serums into my routine. I started using products with no fragrance in them and I feel like that helped my skin out a lot. Also, I highly recommend watching Dr. Dray on YouTube!
SPLOTCHY tinted mineral sunscreen. Save your 💰
Ugh🤬 I bought this sunscreen via Dr.Drays raving review. I put it on and.... ❌1. It’s a splotchy mess ❌2. It’s way too dark of a tint for my skin tone I tried reapplying in places where it didn’t cover but that made it worse. It also clumped in certain parts of my face. Just an awful product. Did anyone else experience this? 💰 For a drug store sunscreen, it’s pretty expensive ($17 + tax!). I do not recommend. Save your money. CeraVe - Face Sheer Tint Hydrating Sunscreen SPF 30

simplicity is key?
life can very easily get in the way sometimes. this can be so severe that, at least in my case, i end up sacrificing things like my skincare routine or other self care, thus making my skin worse and giving me ANOTHER reason to be stressed out. this being said, i’ve abandoned a lot of steps of my routines (which were sometimes 6 steps long!!) to help make my routine quicker and more manageable. am + pm i use these products in this order: cleanse: Milk MAKEUP - Vegan Milk Cleanser or THE inkey LIST - Salicylic Acid Acne + Pore Cleanser tone: THE inkey LIST - Glycolic Acid Exfoliating Toner (i use this every other night) serum/oil: e.l.f. - All the Feels Facial Oil eye cream: zero by skin academy (tried adding this as a new item multiple times but i give up typing it all in every time) moisturizer: e.l.f. - Happy Hydration Cream or Milk MAKEUP - Vegan Milk Moisturizer (i usually opt for the milk one at night as it is thicker and heavier) spot treatment: THE inkey LIST - Succinic Acid Acne Treatment (not pictured) sunscreen: live clean mineral face sunscreen SPF 45 #cheriecreator
Starting tretinoin and spironolactone
After 6 months of researching products and learning more about my skin and what works, I have finally found out the root cause of my acne. I feel like I’ve always had a good, consistent skincare routine. I’ve even made good lifestyle choices such as changing my pillow case every week, cutting out diary, limiting junk food, and drinking lots of water. However, I did not see any improvements with my skin. I mainly break out on my cheeks, chin, and jawline, especially when I’m on or about to start my period. I recently consulted a doctor for free thanks to my university’s student health services. She told me that this is hormonal for sure. I had been producing an excess of androgen hormones which lead to more oil production and eventually more acne. She prescribed me with spironolactone and tretinoin. I started taking these medications a few days ago. I think I’m in the purge period right now. I’m so glad I finally have closure on what has been causing my acne. I’ve never had serious acne problems in the past so this has been really frustrating. Current skincare routine: Morning: CeraVe - Foaming Facial Cleanser For Normal To Oily Skin CeraVe - Daily Moisturizing Lotion For Normal To Dry Skin CeraVe - Mineral Sunscreen Lotion SPF 30 for Face with Zinc Oxide Night: íUNIK - Calendula Complete Cleansing Oil CeraVe - Foaming Facial Cleanser For Normal To Oily Skin CeraVe - Daily Moisturizing Lotion For Normal To Dry Skin pura d'or - 100% Rosehip Seed Oil I also use the THE inkey LIST - Salicylic Acid Acne + Pore Cleanser every other night. If I need to subside a pimple, I would use Rael - Acne Healing Patch or the COSRX - Cosrx Acne Pimple Master Patch I’ve been taking spironolactone every morning and applying my .025% tretinoin every other night. I’m giving my skin time to adjust to the tretinoin so I will start applying it nightly next week. For those who have taken spironolactone or tretinoin: how long did it take for you to see less breakouts? And can I still use my salicylic acid cleanser while on tretinoin?

Wish there was an instant replay on this one!
VICHY - Pureté Thermale One Step Face Cleanser for Sensitive Skin As soon as i applied to cleanse, my skin turned itchy and red instantly. I washed it off instantly and used my ceraveCeraVe - Salicylic Acid Facial Cleanser . People, beware of the fragrance when trying new products. *** INSTANT REGRET ***
Current Products I'm Using
I have oil/combo skin and been struggling with hormonal acne for a few years now which is mainly around my chin. I have noticed some positive changes but also some negative ones, for example I have more blackheads in areas besides my nose which I never had before. Here are the products I've been using lately. AM Routine I don't cleanse in the morning just splash water on my face and pat dry, then I apply PAULA'S CHOICE - Resist C15 Super Booster after I apply moisturizer e.l.f. - Holy Hydration! Face Cream - Fragrance Free then sunscreen Supergoop! - Play Everyday Lotion SPF 50 With Sunflower Extract PM Routine During the day I don't wear much makeup just some mascara so I just use GARNIER - SkinActive Micellar Cleansing Water with Rose Water for my first cleanse, then I go in with PAULA'S CHOICE - Pore Normalizing Cleanser which I am just about out of so I will be using CeraVe - Salicylic Acid Facial Cleanserwhich I haven't tried before but decided to buy it because of all the hype! Than I apply my toner and depending on my skin at the time I will either use PAULA'S CHOICE - Pore-Reducing Toner or I'm from - Rice Toner I have just recently purchased and starting using The Ordinary - Niacinamide 10% + Zinc 1% then I moisturizer with THE inkey LIST - Peptide Moisturizer I use PAULA'S CHOICE - Skin Perfecting 2% BHA Liquid Exfoliator twice a weeks and PAULA'S CHOICE - 1% Retinol Treatment with Peptides + Vitamin C 3 times a week. My skin is still breaking out so I'm gonna try eliminating certain products to see if I can pin point what is causing the breakouts and blackheads. I recently purchased a cleansing brush and I'm gonna start by eliminating the Paulas choice BHA Exfoliator and start using the brush 2 or 3 times a week instead. If that's not the problem then I'm gonna try taking out the Vitamin C. If anyone has any advice or tips I am all ears!!!
Why I Don’t Do DIY Skincare Anymore
So I’ve always been a SUCKER for DIY face masks. Like I have some saved for my dark spots or for my consistent acne. I would try Turmeric and Lemon Face masks or my banana and oatmeal masks.. there was more. Way more.. and it got worst from there. Ik i look scary but that photo was taken LITERALLY 8 DAYS AFTER CONSISTENTLY USING LEMON AND TURMERIC FACE MASK...🤭 sooo i had a good reason why to look a little scary h I would save them in jars to use for later cause I would make big batches to use for later (bad IDEA) and I thought i was going to get great results... little did I know. I didn’t get the results I wanted. I got: -Fungal Acne - Skin Peeling -Sensitivity to the Sun -More Acne Scars -More Hyperpigmentation It was hard to see that my skin wasn’t getting the benefits that I was assuming it would get. My face was irritated and I didn’t put any sunscreen on also which also made it worse. My skin was dry and peeling and I had a LOT OF BREAKOUTS after. My pigmentation got worse and I didn’t really have the self esteem to get up and look good. I just lazier than I already was (Lol). BUT I GAVE UP ON IT AND FIND A SUNSCREEN TO COVER MY SCARS~ elta md SKINCARE - UV Clear Broad Spectrum SPF 46 Mine was tinted but it definitely helped keeping my scars from showing and it had Zinc and niacinamide to help with my scars so it was AMAZING!

Best for those with non-reactive/sensitive skin
This was gifted to me in PR. I have oily, dehydrated, sensitive/acne prone skin. This SPF 30 is chemical, reef safe, and refillable, which is absolutely amazing! I was hoping to love this formula, but unfortunately it makes my skin red and irritated, and after a few days of use I decided it wasn’t for me. While I am so happy there is an SPF in this line, it could have been better to suit more people - aka sensitive skin. Chemical SPF filters are already a higher risk for irritation than mineral, and with the high amount of fragrance this has, I believe the two are what caused my skin to be irritated. On the plus side, it’s extremely hydrating, and I think would best suit those with normal/dry skin types that are non reactive. I hope she comes out with a fragrance free, mineral option!
FENTY SKIN-Hydra Vizor Invisible Moisturizer Broad Spectrum SPF 30 Sunscreen
NEUTROGENA CLEAR FACE SUNSCREEN ($8.99)
Neutrogena - Clear Face Break-Out Free Liquid Lotion Sunscreen Broad Spectrum SPF 30 The Product Neutrogena Liquid Face & Body Broad Spectrum SPF 30 Sunscreen Lotion for acne-prone skin Delivers protection from UVs and prevents skin-aging. Dermatologist-tested formula is oil-free and non-comedogenic, so it won't clog pores Consistency Sunscreen lotion has a liquid, water-light texture that leaves a matte finish on skin Opinion I have had a great experience with this neutrogena product. I wear it everyday under my makeup to protect my skin from UV rays. I decided to try this product because it was specifically made for sensitive, acne prone skin and claimed this it was break-out free. This suscreen doesnt leave my face oily and doesnt break me out with daily use. I would reccomed this sunscreen to anyone with sensitive skin or who wants a light suncreen with high SPF.
Neutrogena-Clear Face Break-Out Free Liquid Lotion Sunscreen Broad Spectrum SPF 30
Has anyone else experienced this?? 🤨
⭐️The SMELL oh my goodness. I have a very sensitive nose and this gives me headaches, smells like straight up chemicals to me. My sister tried it and she didnt mind the scent at all, so I guess it just depends. FOR THIS REASON, I use this mostly when I’m at the beach or on a day I know Im going to sweat a lot. Yikes. ⭐️I’m not sure if I would recommend this for people with darker skin tones unless you want to rub your face away and wait for the white cast to leave. It leaves a slight cast on my skin, but I dont really mind because like I said, I use this sunscreen on my ‘whatever’ days. ⭐️This is IDEAL for sensitive skin prone to acne, rosacea and hyperpigmentation. It contains niacinamide (vitamin B3), hyaluronic acid and lactic acid. It is lightweight BUT I feel like it never fully dries out for me and it leaves me a bit oily throughout. ♥️CONCLUSION. THIS IS A GREAT SUNSCREEN that even has niacinamide. I would recommend this product to anyone. I’ll probably repurchase it, but do want to try other sunscreens first to not have to deal with my aversion to this smell. IF YOU ARE A SUNSCREEN NEWBIE, I think you should try this out. There’s absolutely no harm (maybe a headache if you’re like me) lol. What do you think of this product? -J

Top 5 sunscreen - especially for acne-prone skin
Supergoop! - Unseen Sunscreen Broad Spectrum SPF 40 I will be the first to admit that I was not serious about sun protection in my youth, but now I’m on the sunscreen train and never coming off. One of the reasons why I never wanted to wear face sunscreen was because it would leave me with inevitable breakouts. It took me a long time to find formulas that work with my skin and Supergoop’s Unseen Sunscreen is now my go-to. 💛💛💛 What I really love about it is that it’s oil-free and doubles as a makeup primer. It literally glides across the skin with its velvety formula and leaves it prepped for makeup, so you don’t have to worry about layering anything on top of it and potentially overwhelming your pores. (I do, however, add a little bit of a glowing on top of it to my high points for a dewier glow but Unseen Sunscreen has the rest of your skin covered!) 💛💛💛 The only thing I cannot vouch for is it’s shine controlling properties. My skin is oily enough to begin with and if it’s a stressful or sweaty day, there’s nothing that can stop my shine (this low-key sounds inspirational?? Lol) 💛💛💛 I would definitely recommend to a friend, especially if they have acne-prone skin. It's a little expensive ($32) compared to other sunscreens, but it really works and a little goes a loooong way.
Supergoop!-Unseen Sunscreen Broad Spectrum SPF 40
A perfect daily sunscreen
The sunscreen obsession continues...Ever since I got the soft airy UV essence I haven’t reached for anything else. The name almost perfectly describes this SPF, as it really is soft and airy on the skin. The good: + 50 SPF and broad spectrum protection. + This glides on SO easily. It looks kind of like a white cream when you first squeeze it out, but then it just magically disappears into the skin. + Absolutely no white cast and doesn’t leave behind a shiny residue. + After I put this on, I swear my skin feels so soft! + It’s great for reapplication, I feel like it doesn’t affect my makeup at all underneath (note: I typically go for minimal / makeup these days). It smooths over any makeup super easily. And it won’t pill under makeup. + Doesn’t clog my pores or causes breakouts (I was fairly confident since this has a more gel-like texture like my daily moisturizers). I believe this product has niacinimide which has been proven to help with excess sebum production. + Its alcohol-free! The not so good: - I believe this one has some essential oil in it... but I don’t find it irritating at all so I’m willing to ignore that part. - Like most kbeauty skincare products, I need to order this online, so the wait is almost always 2-3 weeks for delivery. Is it worth it? Yus. Although it’s around $34 CAD, it is a bigger bottle (80ml of product versus my other kbeauty sunscreens which are 50ml of product). AND it works well and doesn’t break me out. Would I repurchase? Definitely. I feel like this is worth every penny which makes me feel more inclined to reapply a good amount each day. Which is essentially the point of sunscreen so I think it’s probably a good thing. Ps I have combination, acne prone skin :)
