Acne can be combatted as long as you choose appropriate products!!
For acne-prone skin, the most important steps of skincare lie in deep cleansing. Because a majority of my acne comes from the failure of doing absolute cleansing. I usually pay special care to the choice of makeup remover, facial soap and cleansing masks. Here are my reviews for some of the products that I have found useful or useless in combating acne. It seems that Bioderma Sensibio H2O Soothing Micellar Cleansing Water is highly recommended for a while. It rates 4.6 out of 5 in regard to customer reviews on Amazon. However, after using this French product for a couple of times, the area around my nose began to break out. It really frustrated me. Intending to clean up and avoid acne, it ended up worsening my skin condition. A sharp prickling sensation can describe what I felt at that time. It does not take off my makeup, especially eye makeup, as well as Estee Lauder(which I have recommended on my home page before). So it does no help to combat acne, instead it makes my skin more sensitive and unstable. After applying remover, I will use facial soap to assure absolute cleansing. The Clinique Foaming Sonic Facial Soap is really an excellent product to have. It gently yet thoroughly removes dirt, excess oil and impurities to reveal smoother, clearer skin, leaves skin feeling soft, comfortable and oil-free. I love this because it makes me feel so relaxed. I have been using it for a year, and my skin gets less prone to acne. When I feel too dry on my face but still need to do strong cleansing, I will use functional masks to do the cleansing as well as moisturizing. Dr. Jart+ Porecting Solution is a Korean bubbling charcoal sheet mask. It gives me a sense of deep cleansing when applying it. I feel the bubbles out of my layer of skin, taking away my dirt, my oil and etc. Maybe the charcoal does absorb dirt deep in my skin and refreshes my face every time I use it. It purifies my skin, and at the same time it moisturizes. This really works to protect my skin from acne. I get less acne. I highly recommend this. My must-have for cleansing!

Best makeup remover ever
Bioderma Sensibio H2O Soothing Micellar Cleansing Water and Makeup Removing Solution for Sensitive Skin gentle enough for the eye area This makeup remover is not typically an eye and lip makeup remover, but it is mild，good for sensitive skin, I use it as a whole face makeup remover. I have semi-permanent eyeliner and eyelashes, so I just need a makeup remover to remove the eyeshadow, eyebrow color, foundation and lipstick. It is strong enough to remove eyeshadow and almost all my lip colors. I don’t need immediately to wash my face after using this makeup remover. It can keep my face hydrated and clean. I recommend everyone to buy this product no matter you put makeup every day or just put sunscreen. BIODERMA - Sensibio H2O
BIODERMA- Sensibio H2O
BIODERMA - Sensibio H2O I am extremely particular when it comes to eye makeup remover for several reasons: I want a remover that is gentle on the sensitive skin around the eyes, I want a remover that is efficient in removing makeup, I don’t want oil as an ingredient as I very much dislike the oily residue that is left behind on my skin-some people only want the oil version-not me. I have tried some other micellar waters and I really do think this one is so far the best I've tried. It doesn't burn or sting and leaves me face feeling pretty refreshed! Definitely recommended!!😍 What is it: Sensibio H2O is the first and only dermatological micellar water perfectly compatible with the skin. The micelles in Sensibio H2O, very similar to the skin's natural composition, are unique. For maximum tolerance and comfort, these micelles feature a dermatological active ingredient very similar to the skin's composition that immediately capture impurities leaving clean and comfortable skin. How to use it: Soak cotton pad with Sensibio H2O, cleanse and/or remove makeup from your face and eyes. Who is it for: All skin types.
The Best Makeup Remover I Have Used🔅🔅🔅
BIODERMA - Sensibio H2O I discovered this product through a number of YouTubers (mostly French) 3 years ago. When my bf went to France, I asked him to pick up a couple of bottles for me to try as I’ve watched so many great reviews about this product. Bioderma is a French skincare brand that you can buy in French pharmacies. They have a line of moisturizers, toners, but this product is, I think, the most popular among the rest. I’ve been using this micellar water for 3 years now, and it has always been my favourite. Sure, I try other brands to remove my makeup but this is definitely my holy grail product. It’s something that I will always use over and over again. It does its job of removing my makeup, even the stubborn liquid eyeliner, and it never irritates my skin. It’s so gentle but it’s tough on dirt and makeup residue. I can’t recommend this product enough. This is definitely a must-have for me!
Dark Spot/hyperpigment skin care routine- NIGHT
I’ve covered my day-time melasma skin routine here: https://t.cherie.com/7GsdHP/ and this is my night time routine after a day of being out and about: LA ROCHE-POSAY - Toleriane Hydrating Gentle Face Cleanser Very gentle cleanser. You really have to get those circular movements in on your face to get every corner because I think it is a little too gentle...but non-stripping. BIODERMA - Sensibio H2O Micellar water: set it into a cotton pad and wipe away. The perfect addition for removing anything left behind from the step prior. Sometimes the La Roche-Posay doesn’t get rid of all the makeup on my makeup-heavy days and this digs right it. I like this one because it’s for sensitive skin and soothes as well. However, it doesn’t remove my water-proof mascara so I use-Neutrogena - Neutrogena Oil-Free Eye Makeup Remover LA ROCHE-POSAY - Toleriane Ultra Eye Cream for Dry Skin Ultra-soothing! It’s a gel-cream rather than a thick lotion. It hydrates so well with a lightweight touch to it. Definitely recommend. 🌱🌱🌱🌱🌱🌱🌱🌱🌱🌱🌱🌱🌱🌱🌱🌱🌱 These next two products are specifically for my skin problems. I use one product one night and the other product the next night...never together. Words of caution: they left my skin pretty red for a few weeks but apparently, this is usual. Also, once I startd applying these, my Derm stressed the importance of sunblock even more and how reapplying is just as important. Advaita - Leneda Gel This is a silky sort of translucent thick “gel” if that makes any sense...very similar to the bare mineral primer texture. It was prescribed for pores on my my nose + surrounding areas but I am not sure if it had anything to do with clearing hyperpigmentation from the skin. OBAGI - Nu-Derm Blend Fx This is probably the harshest one of them all with Hydroquinine being its active ingredient (apparently it’s the gold standard for melasma treatment). It’s just a light cream and I apply it on my forehead, nose, + surrounding areas since my hyperpigmentation is concentrated there. I was told me not to apply it on my upper lips. It never irritated me nor did it cause itching but the next day, the areas where I applied it were red. Kinda looked like a sunburn. ...i wash my night products off the next morning and get on to my morning skin care routine. Ive been doing my morning and night skin routine for a total of 3 months but I have seen improvements in my skin. I’ve also made sure to constantly reapply sunblock (elta md SKINCARE - UV Physical Broad-Spectrum SPF 41 ) and wear a hat when I go out. I’ve always been a ☀️ sun lover ☀️ but never wore sunblock up until 2 years ago. I think a mixture of that w genetics and other things have spiked up the melanin in my cells and enlarged those pores. Now, I’m extra careful when I’m out and going throughout the day.
Dark spot/hyperpigmentation skin care routine
I’m in my late 20s and as you all may know, Melasma is known as the “pregnancy patch” but that isn’t my case. Melasma can pop up due to factors like birth contraceptive use, pregnancy, hormones, genetics, & excessive sun exposure. I went to the derm & I what I like about her is that she doesn’t use the basic products usually prescribed. I hope you enjoy this post and find it helpful in any way! It’s been a slow but steady, seemingly-promising process! I have 2 routines: day time & night time. Night time routine: https://t.cherie.com/7Gsgr8/ Day-time Routine: LA ROCHE-POSAY - Toleriane Hydrating Gentle Face Cleanser Very gentle cleanser. You really have to get those circular movements in on your face to get every corner because I think it is too gentle...but non-stripping. BIODERMA - Sensibio H2O Micellar water: The perfect addition for removing anything left behind from the step prior. Sometimes the La Roche-Posay doesn’t get rid of all the makeup on my makeup-heavy days and this digs right it. I like this one because it’s for sensitive skin and soothes it. However, it doesn’t remove my water-proof mascara. LA ROCHE-POSAY - Toleriane Ultra Eye Cream for Dry Skin Eye cream- Ultra-soothing! It’s a gel-cream rather than a thick lotion. It hydrates so well with a lightweight touch to it. Definitely recommend. sesderma - Azelac RU Facial Serum This is a serum that I use during the day to tackle those dark spots. It claims to brighten while giving luminous skin. It is a very lightweight serum that I apply on my forehead, nose and the areas surrounding it up to my cheekbones. It has a pleasant smell and it has lasted me about 4 months. I like that I can apply my moisturizer, sunscreen, and makeup over it without having any residue or flakiness. Also, I never experienced any irritation. I’ve noticed a difference after 3 months. Remember, this is a slow process. FILORGA - Hydra Filler MAT Cream Moisturizer: A little goes a long way. You get plump, moisturized skin. It’s definitely more of a gel-cream consistency and it literally absorbs right into your skin in minutes giving you a hydrated feel. Also, pores just disappear. Idk how but my skin just looks great afterward. It smells good too. elta md SKINCARE - UV Physical Broad-Spectrum SPF 41 Favorite sunscreen. It is a physical blocker that reflects sun rays instead of absorbing them using minerals such as zinc oxide. It’s designed for sensitive skins like mine and it contains a little tint to it (doesn’t give you coverage per se but it gives you a little glow). This sunscreen sits so well- it almost feels like it moisturizes your skin. I use it as bb cream with concealer. Also, reapply every 3-4 hours- a must! ❗️❗️❗️Disclaimer❗️❗️❗️ Im not a doctor and what is suitable for my skin may not be to yours. please check the ingredients and refer to your doctor for recommended use.
