Treatments (Face) - Paula's Choice - 10% Azelaic Acid Booster

Azelaic acid is an ingredient that will cause a purge. To shorten the experience, get a good derm office to do a facial with extractions first.

Now that that’s been said, this product alone (along with my discovery that alcohol toners are the WORST and moisturizing even oily skin is a MUST), keeps my very acne-prone face clear. Actually clear. After 20 years of trying everything. As …

Cleansers - Burt's Bees - Sensitive Facial Cleanser with Cotton Extract

2.0

I really wanted to like this, my skin is sensitive BUT needs a proper cleaning, and this is way too creamy and leaves a film on my face brush, so I can't imagine it comes off my skin very well either.

Otherwise felt soft and gentle and didn't irritate. Found CeraVe's cleanser for normal to dry skin and would definitely recommend it over this. This might do a great job …

Bit of an HG product for me, as it's the only salicylic acid delivery I could find that doesn't depend on a lot of alcohol content (there's more witch hazel in it than alcohol). It's very effective, smells nice, leaves my skin so smooth every night. Using it is a pleasure, I look forward to it.

Jun/30/2016

I've come back to this stuff over and over for years, going back and forth with natural oils and Olays and Cetaphils and blah blah blah... Yes, it's light, and that's why I think it's great: I can use more or double-layer if I need to (winter), or go easy if I don't (summer). It absorbs quickly, and is never sticky/tacky like other oil-free moisturizers I've tried …Read more
