FAKEBLOOD! i love seeing your name here. what else do you rate from derma-e? i tried one or two of their products (that toner is on my iherb wish list) and really love them so far.

my current routine:

morning:
splash with cold water
moisturise with derma-e anti-wrinkle vitamin A retinyln palmitate cream (i often skip this, the below is often enough)

OCM with jojoba oil
cleanse with superfacialist rose cleanser
tone with thayer's witch hazel
exfoliate with Paula's Choice 2% BHA gel every 2nd night

Thanks, hun! Another Derma-E product I like is their Overnight Peel (it used to be called something else, but I think this is what the current name is). When I feel like switching up AHA products I will use that in lieu of the PC AHA gel, the Alpha Hydrox AHA Souffle, and the Olay Regenerist Night Resurfacing Elixir. The other two products I used to like from Derma-E have been discontinued for some time now, unfortunately... one of them was a facial cleanser called vanilla bean mousse, and another one was a light lotion in a tube called fruit smoothie serum, or something to that extent. It's so depressing when good products get discontinued. ;(

NOTE: My skincare changes a bit depending on how my skin feels during that day.

Morning
- Wash with La Roche Posay Micellar Water OR Kiehls Ultra Creamy Facial Wash OR Green Tea Purifying Mask by Perfect Potion
- Spray with La Roche Posay/ Avene Thermal Water
- If my skin is feeling congested already La Roche Posay effaclar Duo+
- Clarins Ever Matte Foundation SPF15 OR La Roche Posay BB Cream SPF50 OR Paula's Choice Resist Light Sunscreen SPF30


Evening
- Clinique Take the Day Off Cleansing Balm
- Kiehl's Ultra Creamy Facial Cleanser

Masks
- Glam Glow YouthMud Exfoliating mask; used sparingly, once a week maybe once every 1.5-2 only on my T Zone
- Dermalogica Gentle Cream exfoliant; once a week
- Aforementioned Perfect Potion Green Tea Mask; I use this as a "cleanser" if my skin is feeling RIDICULOUSLY oily in the morning and if I just want a light mask to help keep my skin in check.

I have acne-prone skin, so I've found that natural and minimal skin care is effective. Also, I don't use anything tested on animals, so everything here isn't tested! The prescription acne stuff I use may be tested on animals, but I bought a big tube of it before I did any research and it was prescribed by a doctor so i can't just switch it out. i will talk to my derma about safer options tho :)

Morning:
Herbalism face wash by Lush
Tea tree toner water by Lush
Tazorac Gel

Night:
Burt's Bees gentle exfoliating wipes
wipe my face with water to get rid of excess
tea tree toner

simple yet effective!

Reading through this thread makes me feel bad about my face routine, lol.

I use Dove bar soap. LMAO :rofl:

Sometimes I use La Roche Posay Effaclar Medicated face wash and Clarifying solution toner and I like it okay. Dove bar soap keeps my skin from breaking out and it's easy so that's why I use it. :tu:

does anyone else have skin that is sensitive to fatty alcohols? (cetyl, cetearyl, stearyl alcohol) I FINALLY realized this was the common ingredient in a lot of things that I suspected might be breaking them out so I went without them for a couple days and my skin immediately started to look better! The downside is that a lot of the products that I previously used had fatty alcohols in them so I'm looking for some alternatives!

Morning:

simple moisturizing facial wash (i'd like an alternative to this though, I find it a bit drying for the winter)
thayers alcohol free witch hazel
avene tolerence extreme cream

Evening:

clinique take the day off balm cleanser
clinique take the day off eye makeup remover
thayers alcohol free witch hazel
marcelle hydra-c 24 H energizing hydrating gel

treatments:

marcelle clay mask

if anyone has any recommendations for an spf, or scrub (either manual or chemical) I'd love to hear it!

^ i don't know about the ingredients, it might not work for you, but i can't say enough good things about elta md broad spectrum spf 46. i just adore it. no white cast, quite moisturising (i dont always use a separate moisturiser underneath) and niacinamide which my skin loves.

on the scrub side i really rate paulas choice 2% BHA lotion. im using the gel at the moment but my skin seems to agree more with the lotion. you can get samples from the site too, so you can try before you buy. again not sure if the ingredients will work for you, sorry!

^^ thanks for the suggestions! :love2: Where do you buy the elta md? From their website it looks like you can only get it from specific physicians? I'm just slightly worried since the website basically called out the 'unauthorized resellers'

Hey guys I just thought I would post this here:
http://www.cosdna.com/eng/

You can use this to see the irritation in ingredients in a product :) I use it when researching what to buy and it really helps me make a more informed decision than ready reviews as of course everyone is different (la dee dah etc)

My skin has been driving me crazy for the past month or so with breakouts on my right cheek (slightly below the apple of my cheeks, kind of in the hollow of my cheekbones) and the right side of my mouth below my lips. Not sure if it's hormonal, stress, or a product I'm using. The only new products I've introduced in my skincare are the CeraVe foaming cleanser and moisturizing lotion but I've used their hydrating cleanser before without any bad reaction. If anyone has any suggestion, please let me know!

Morning:
CeraVe Foaming Facial Cleanser
La Roche-Posay Serozinc
CeraVe Moisturizing Lotion (the regular one with the pump, not the facial one)
Uriage sunscreen

Evening:
Clinique Take The Day Off Cleansing Balm with a warm towel
or Bioderma Crealine H2O
CeraVe Foaming Facial Cleanser
La Roche-Posay Serozinc
Bliss Daily Detoxifying Facial Toner
CeraVe Moisturizing Lotion
Tea tree oil with jojoba oil on my spots
Bioderma Sebium Purifying Mask once or twice a week

^ The CeraVe in a tub and foaming cleanser didn't work for me at all. for the first week or so all was fine but after that it just lead to closed comedones. if i were you i would cut out both of those, replace them with whatever you were using before and see how you get on. theres a chance its hormonal (cheek, jaw, chin acne often is, unfortunately speaking from experience here). other than that, i would change my pillowcase frequently, make sure my cell phone was clean and avoid touching/leaning. i know ive heard (probably on reddit's skincareaddiction sub) of people using the hydrating Cerave with no issues then switching to the foaming and it not agreeing with them at all.

Thank you! I should have cut out the CeraVe as soon as I noticed I was breaking out just to make sure but I had heard so many good things about CeraVe that I didn't really think to do it. I find it odd that it's pretty much only the right side of my face reacting though! I don't even speak on the phone that much ugh :(

This thread's not looking too lively, but I just wanted to recommend two serums: the Olay Regenerist Fragrance Free is fantastic and very smoothing as a primer, I use it under Cetaphil Lotion and it makes my skin so soft and look really great. I also use it at night and I'm really happy with it, especially the price!

The other one is the more expensive Paula's Choice Skin Balancing Antioxident Serum with Retinol, this is a wow product! It made my skin so smooth, pores much less visible and I got almost no acne while I was using it. I wish I could continue using it forever but can't afford it :| I have a deep pitted acne scar on my cheek (looks horrendous :( ) and while I was using this serum, it smoothed it and it started to build up a new layer of skin (which was bright white as I suffer from keloid scarring). Sadly it has become pitted again so the effect was temporary. But it's worth a thought if anyone has a deep acne scar and can afford to use this very long term.

Otherwise my best tips for those with acne or oily skin are to eat probiotic yogurt every day - this improved my skin soooo much. And also to blot your skin religiously, like every hour from the moment you wake up! This improved my acne by about 95% and believe me I had tried everything . It makes my skin behave like normal skin and look very healthy and it's very pore-minimising :tu:

I just bought the MUA 25% and 40% mandelic Peel.
I have been using the 25% last two weeks and honestly... I'm so underwhelmed. I paid SO MUCH to get them over here and (as usual) and not experiencing the whole "NEW SKIN NEXT DAY WOWOW"
It is good to an extent, I have noticed my scars speeding up in vanishing but yeah...
