Products I've tried to treat acne....
I have combination-oily and sensitive skin. I was also acne-prone for 7 years and I still have acne scars. I'll be sharing some products I've tried before. 💦Facial Cleanser -Chanel La Mousse Anti-Pollution Cleansing Cream-To-Foam A gentle, paste-like facial cleanser suitable for sensitive skin and evening use. Rub to create a foamy lather before use or use it with a facial cleansing massager. -CAUDALIE - Instant Foaming Cleanser A morning facial cleanser. Those with sensitive and fragile skin can consider cleansing in the evening. 💦Essence SK-II - Facial Treatment Essence (Pitera Essence) It increases skin immunity if used long-term. It also won't cause acne breakouts and is super refreshing! It's effective in lightening acne scars but does nothing for pockmarks. LA MER - The Treatment Lotion A small amount is enough for the whole face. I find it a little sticky for me and I don't feel like it adds anything to my skincare routine. SK-II - Facial Treatment Clear Lotion Toner As a double cleanser before using a toner, I don't suggest daily use for sensitive, acne-prone skin as I don't feel it doing much at all. Albion Essential Skin Conditioner It cleared acne effectively at the beginning. But somehow it didn't work as well after a while. I still use it as a lotion mask sometimes. SHISEIDO - Eudermine Revitalizing Essence Strongly not recommended! It has a really sticky texture and causes acne breakouts. 💦Serum SHISEIDO - Ultimune Power Infusing Serum Concentrate I highly recommend you to use this after a toner. It's non-greasy and it won't cause breakouts. It keeps your skin healthy if you use it long term! I think it has a restorative effect. LA MER - LA MER The Concentrate It repairs damaged skin and lightens acne scars, but I won't suggest everyday use as it causes bumps. Kiehl's - Midnight Recovery Concentrate It also features restoration effects and I normally use it after applying Shiseido Ultimune Power Infusing Concentrate. I'll squeeze three drops onto my palm, then rub it between my palms until it's warm and massage it onto my face. It also doesn't cause acne breakouts! You'll find your skin feeling rejuvenated the next day. 💦Facial Cream SK-II - R.N.A. Power Radical New Age Cream I think it's too thick and heavy for oily skin during summer, but it's suitable for winter use. It's also suitable for acne-prone skin. LA MER - LA MER The Moisturizing Soft Cream LA MER - The Moisturizing Cool Gel Cream I suggest the soft cream for winter use. It has a great scent and it won't cause acne breakouts. However, you'll find your skin oily the next day. I suggest the gel cream for summer use, but those with severe acne-prone skin can skip this step.
SHISEIDO-Eudermine Revitalizing Essence
I’d rather get coal than La Mer - yea really
LA MER - The Moisturizing Cool Gel Cream The moisturizing cool gel cream is meant to be a “featherweight” gel moisturizer aimed at oily to combo skin that delivers soothing moisture for a refreshed hydrated feel. It’s meant to leave your skin appearing naturally vibrant and restored. Honestly, we’ll get right out the gate with me saying I wouldn’t recommend this to anyone, even if they had the coin to drop. At the $180 price tag for the smallest full size version the ingredient list doesn’t wow me. Especially for oily, combo skins, this contains so many essential oils, I can see this causing some sensitivity issues or unwanted breakouts. This product isn’t for me. I’m dry and dehydrated but this doesn’t feel like it provides even an ounce of moisture. It just leaves a veil of silicone over the skin and calls it a day. I was left feeling tight and itchy after using this product. It’s fragranced. That’s a no for me. It contains alcohol, another no. 1/5 stars. Far too expensive for what this is doesn’t moisturize, it coats, and it even only JUST BARELY does that.
LA MER-The Eye Concentrate
Summer=No Face Cream❌Brilliant Face Creams to Save Oily, Summer Skin🌞
Lots of girls stop using facial cream in summer when the weather gets hot but this is actually not good for our skin care. Facial creams seal in skin moisture and protect our skin from skin-damaging environmental factors. The best facial creams are moisturizing without being greasy. I have mature, combination-dry, sensitive, acne-prone skin which flares easily. Below are three facial creams that I love using in summer. Anti-aging: Lancôme Absolue Precious Cells Advanced Regenerating and Repairing Care It has a thick yellow paste texture but spreads easily. It has a light rose scent and contains a high concentration of Pro-Xylane which improves skin firmness. I have dry skin, so I also use the richer version in spring and summer. When I apply a thick layer of it, using it as a sleeping mask, I'll wake up with delicate skin the next day. Moisturizing: Sisley Black Rose Skin Infusion Cream It has a light pink, gel-like texture with a very rich rose scent. It contains black Baccara rose oil extract, geranium oil extract, and rose essential oil and I like how it feels on my face. It focuses on brightening and moisturizing, and doesn't cause my makeup to cake, so I normally use it during the daytime in spring and summer. Restoration: LA MER - The Moisturizing Cool Gel Cream I don't really recommend the La Mer classic version for acne-prone skin as it causes breakouts easily when not emulsified properly. This is the 'soft' version which doesn't need to be emulsified and can be directly applied on the skin. It offers great restorative care and whenever my skin starts flushing due to an allergic reaction, the flare can be soothed after I apply a thick layer of this cream before bed. It's an S.O.S emergency cream which I always make sure I have at home. Its unique algae extract also smells very comforting.

Dupe For La Mer?
🌺Update: I compared this with La Mer LA MER - The Moisturizing Cool Gel Cream . I think La Mer is a little smoother and thinner than One Ocean. It has a nice feel once rubbed in but right now I’m needing a lot of moisture and it didn’t do enough for me. It also contains fragrance which should be avoided in skin care items. As far as the smell, I don’t think it’s bad or overpowering but I didn’t care for it. I’m very sensitive to fragrance so I was not feeling this. I eventually washed it off and applied some facial oil instead for deep hydration. In terms of texture, I think this La Mer product was similar to Drunk Elephant’s Protini peptide moisturizer, though a little thinner. I prefer One Ocean for a nice moisturizer that incorporates marine ingredients. I think La Mer has a nice smooth finish but it just didn’t wow me. If you are looking for an actual total dupe for this particular La Mer product, I don’t think One Ocean fits the bill due to it being just the slightest bit thicker and the teensiest bit less smooth, but I would still recommend One Ocean over La Mer for all the other reasons I’ve listed here. ❤️I hope this was helpful! Let me know what your favorite moisturizers are! ❤️ 🌼Original post: I bought this after learning about the benefits of marine plants being in skincare (seaweed, algae, etc) while watching a review by a dermatologist about La Mer. La Mer is incredibly expensive, includes mineral oil, tests on animals and contains fragrance. They claim to have a special marine broth, so I searched around and found One Ocean which absorbs really nicely, is fragrance free, cruelty free and has no mineral oil. It contains “active marine ingredients including glycoproteins from the Antarctic and algae from the Sea of Japan, combined with high performance peptides.” It is said to “penetrate the skin, soothe and lock in hydration, to stimulate collagen to promote firmness, elasticity and skin hydration, brightens, smooths and visibly reduces the appearance of wrinkles for a radiant complexion.” I’m really excited to try this. I’ll compare it to a small sample of La Mer in a bit, but knowing La Mer has added fragrance is an absolute “no” in my book, so I won’t be doing a long-term test. This seems like a really great moisturizer in general, light enough for the day and non-sticky. If you’re looking for the benefits of marine ingredients but want to avoid some of the problems with La Mer, this could be for you. I’ll post an update in about a week.

Same Effect With 1/5 The Price? 🤔Sounds Like A Good Deal
I have combination skin. My skin is very dry in the winer, and it can get oily in the summer. It is kind of hard to find the right face cream for combo skin. In my mind, these two products are very similar. So today, I will compare the two and tell you the BEST Face Cream! Both of them have a moisturizing gel-like texture, but they also have slight differences. TATCHA - The Water Cream is more sticky but it spreads very easily. The LA MER - The Moisturizing Cool Gel Cream is more moisturizing but it doesn't spread as easily as the Tatcha The Water Cream. Both have a light refreshing scent. The Tatcha The Water Cream is an oil-free, moisturizing cream which helps in maintaining the water balance of our skin and minimizing the appearance of pores. The ingredients include Japanese Wild Rose, which can visibly tighten pores and smoothen skin texture, and Japanese Leopard Lily which helps to control excess oil and clarifies skin. Hadasei-3™, an anti-aging trinity of green tea, rice, and algae, restores a healthy look and youthful radiance. In conclusion, the Tatcha The Water Cream focuses on moisturizing while also providing an anti-oxidant effect. It's more suitable for oily or combination skin. It's US$68 for 1.7oz. The La Mer The Moisturizing Cool Gel Cream delivers soothing moisture for a refreshed feeling. It's created with Miracle Broth™ and Micro Oil Gel Capsules to bring nourishing moisture to the skin and at the same time help smoothen fine lines and wrinkles. Lime tea helps to protect against environmental stress and pollution for a pure glow. This cool gel cream is ideal for a combination or oily skin. It's US $335 for 2oz. To sum up, the La Mer The Moisturizing Cool Gel Cream provides a moisturizing, restorative, and anti-aging effect. It's a good choice for those who want to nourish and restore their skin. The Tatcha The Water Cream focuses on moisturizing, oil control, cleansing, and fighting oxidation. Both facial creams have different effects and properties. In terms of moisturizing, I think the Tatcha The Water Cream is sufficient. Do you agree with me? 😘 Share your thoughts!
LA MER-The Moisturizing Cool Gel Cream
My favourite and least favourite La mer product
I used to be a big fan of La mer. It has the best lip balm in the world. I was amazed by its smell, its texture and its healing effect on my lip the first time I used it.I bought 2 instantly after I tried it, one for me, one for my mom. I always have a dry lip and it makes me look horrible when I wear lipstick. I tried a dozen lip balm, none of them rescues me like la mer. It moistures my dry lips and heals the lips from inside. It makes the lips brighten and smooth after wearing lipstick. This will keep moisturising you the whole day. I can keep using this lip balm all my life, but i won't say the same words for the other product, Their facial cream.This moisturising gel cream is not that useful as it advertised. It claimed to moisturise and hydrate the skin. The only thing I felt was thick and oily, I couldn't even sleep until it was completely absorbed to my face. I have a sensitive skin, I can get pimple easily after drinking milktea, slept over and eating spicy food. This facial cream makes it worse, it did not remove the acne mark I had on my face, only made me had pimple and oily face. Plus it's expensive, I can use a 30 dollars facial cream that works better than this one. Anyway, my advice is try to buy some tests or ask for tests from BA, so that you can fully understand whether you are suitable for this product or not before buying a full size one.
