Moisturizers -Cerave - Facial Moisturizing Lotion - PM

I dont want to jinx myself...but I can not believe I have finally found a facial moisturizer that I can use. I have never literally never had this happen. I have struggled on and off with acne since I was 11, and now at 35 I have rosacea...lovely. So now I am on metrogel and tazorac and I HAD to find something my skin was soooo dry without. and this is it. I cant say enough good things, it does not make me super oily or break me out. I use it PM and sometimes in the AM. I really wish the would make an AM version without chemical sunscreens in it.

I tried this product with as a free gift sample. I used every last drop, but did not repurchase. Now months later its getting cold outside I'm having dry flakes probably from my acne wash and metrogel. I try and moisturize but that always breaks me out. I started remembering this little mask and how I liked it. So I went and bought it and I LOVE IT! I would say it eats away those flakes without causing any irritation in my senstive skin, and so somehow my face feels moisturized with all the flakes gone. I will never be without it again. I am a little addicted....I could use it almost every night with no bad reactions at all. Also.........someone told me my skin looked good today?!!!! wow.
I have been using this for about a week. I love love the color of it (im a 7) it looks great on my skin....does not in any way make me oily. But I have to admit the staying power is average. MUF HD stays on way better but after using MUF for a year I think its breaking me out. I dont mind reapplying a little at the end of my day before evening because it doesnt break me out. Anyways yes i would buy it again.
At first I thought I liked this, but really it's not very moisturizing and after a while it clogged my pores. I think it was just too much glycerin. I have moved onto Cerave PM and really like it much better.

I really like this wash. I used to use Benzoyl peroxide for years with success until one day (like 6 years later) it stopped working. I've avoided it for several years. Recently started to break out, been dealing with a dermatologist, she put me on retin a micro, metro gel. My skin NEVER got clear after 10 weeks of use I had chemical burns. I stopped the Retin A and started using this....I kid you not I was clearer after 2 washes than I had been in 6 months. I'm going to try to use Retin a micro 2 x a week along with this wash every night.

I like this, Great pigment. Lasting power. My only complaint is that it bleeds a little onto my inside corners and lower lash line. I would probably try something different next time, however this would still be in the running if I didnt find anything I liked better, I wouldnt pay double at like Sephora for something better, if that makes sense.

I like this. I LOVE that it doesnt breakme out cause everything does. No itching, no anything, it is light but I layered with my reg powder. Also was very light with touch ups. For the price u can not beat it.

I've only used this a few times. I am using this in the am to wash off retin a and moisturizer. I dont think I would try and remove make up at night with this.I use neutrogena grapefruit scrub at night and have always felt it was too harsh for a light morning wash. EDIT...I do not think this cleaned my face good at all. And I think it had too much glycerin which if I use too much will clog my pores and I think it started to, it felt like it left a film on my face.
This is my 1st NYX purchase. I got it from Ulta it is a Charcoal grey green. Doesnt look green on tho but it's a nice change from all the Blue grey charcoals out there. I am very impressed with the staying power of this shadow, esp for a low price shadow. I use primer but regardless this is nice. It has great pigment. LOVING THE MATTE! and this matches the new Essie nailpolish fall collection shade, cant remember the name but its exact.

Used it twice. Gave me 2 cyst and cheeks breakout like never before. No i literally have never had acne on my checks. ....this sucks! i can not use this oil my skin reacts horribly to this. i even made a derma app for next week. And the bottle leaks super easy. I hate this, single biggest mistake I've made in a while.
I'm liking this a lot. I struggle with reactions to bronzers, I've used a few. Tarte was thee worst and the one before this was Hourglass Brand and I liked it but it eventually started breaking me out also :( But this bronzer I have ZERO reactions too, I can even wear it everyday YAY! and no problems, I am happy with the color, I am light skinned and olive I usually always wear a natural in every line (if that helps with the color) and yes its not waterproof but I don't care I just want a bronzer i can use daily, I will reapply 1 time if I am having an extra long day.

I wanted to love this, I liked the way it felt when I put it on my skin, but ultimately it gave me blackheads even on my check area which is highly usual for me. Im on Retin A I was just experimenting with something new I usually use Shiesdo Cream Gel with zero problems, so I'm dumb for messing that up. I went back to me Shiesdo and the blackheads have cleared up. Returning it.
I like this a lot, I have it in pink. It looks great when my face is totally done up with bronzer and then I add this on my cheek bones. Im really glad I bought it. Also, no break outs so far and thats a GREAT thing for me.
This is a PERFECT spot treatment gel. Literally gets rid of a pimple in hours. I use Retin A but when I get a pimple I grab for this. I can even put make up over it with no issues. I will have this in my cabinet for a long time to come.

I like this powder I use the 30. I am not itching or breaking out from this powder, Im impressed with the SHORT ingredient list. It has taken me close to a year and a lot of wasted $$ to find a powder that doesn't aggravate my skin. I can say it doesn't last ALL day long but Im ok with reapplying knowing that the next day my skin isn't going to be totally broke out. Its exactly what I need.
