I can’t use liquid cleansers on my face. They tend to break me out & I think glycerin makes my skin itch. I use vanicream bar soap, which most ppl may think is too drying, but it doesn’t dry my skin as much as most liquid cleansers. I’ve tried many, trying to switch over as I’m getting older. (Cetaphil gentle cleansing foam, cerave hydrating, cerave foaming, simple brand, & some higher …Read more

Glycerin clogs my pores horribly. I can’t use cleansers on face that contain it, can’t use with water- horrible reaction w clogged pores!!
I tried using in my coconut oil (about 1 part glycerin, 5 parts oil) on my legs as a moisturizer. My legs got some bumps. This rarely happens bc my skin is so dry naturally.
Luckily I found the vanicream bar to use as a facial cleanser & cerave …

Treatments (Face) - Paula's Choice - Skin Perfecting 2% BHA Liquid Exfoliant

I want to love PC brand. I LOVE beautypedia, although I’ve found they favor certain brands & leave negative reviews on others. (Fragrance in neutrogena products is ok & gets 5 stars. The ordinary gets 2 stars bc it’s “one note” & it doesn’t have any bad ingredients) Anyhow.
I’ve tried many products. They all seem to cause the same reaction on my skin!
This BHA I tried first …

Ppl still buy this crap!?! I signed in & saw it so thought I’d warn some future victims!
Do not get this stuff anywhere near your skin!!!
Astringents are from the 90’s & we all know better now! No??
Alcohol dries your skin. Destroys your skin barrier. Acne is a sign of a damaged skin barrier already. It might seem to heal spots, but you’re creating a vicious cycle here …

First of all. I bought 10 travel size tubes bc I don’t like jars. I recommend it, as I ended up with many more ounces of product for less $$. And a convenient tube.

I bought this for under eyes. I follow dr dray YouTube & you have to apply this to a damp face. That’s how hyaluronic acid works. If you apply to dry skin, it can dry your skin out. Also make sure you get the fragrance …

DO NOT USE THIS ON YOUR BODY!!!! Anywhere on your body!!!!!

I got this bc my aloe plants were about all gone. I highly recommend a real aloe leaf btw.
This stuff is misleading for one. It says 100% aloe. Although aloe is an ingredient, it is most definitely not 100% aloe. The biggest thing is it has triamethalone (spelling) also known as TEA as the SECOND ingredient. This …

I used everything for my hormonal acne. My diet & supplements helped clear my skin. (DIM, vitamins C, D3, probiotics) But I still get flesh colored bumps on jawline around that time of month.
Things I’ve tried: aczone, tertenoin, bha’s (Even the famous Paula’s choice one) I’ve tried masks. Nothing helped. My skin was dry & flaky & just looked plain awful. The treatments had it …

My skin is the worst. I have dry skin. And almost every product I use breaks me out. In acne, clogged pores, & rashes. I stick w the cerave, vanicream, & cetaphil lines for skin care. And i can’t wear makeup. Rather not have ANY bumps on my face. I like it smooth & clear. Most cetaphil moisturizers have hidden fragrance in them. This one has good ingredients. I was looking for a …Read more

So I use cetaphil gentle cleansing bar. I’ve been trying to find a replacement bc they add masking fragrance to it & I don’t like using fragrance or alcohol on my skin. Cetaphil is very misleading & also adds it to their moisturizers, only calling it a dif name. (Check beautypedia.com)

The ingredients in this are similar to the cetaphil. I’ve only used once this morning, but …

Dries super fast. Not good for my under eye area, but I use it on acne spots. Have to cover one at a time tho or else it sets on it’s own.
I have dry skin & uts too dry for me, but considering it’s staying power, I’ll keep using until I find a better replacement for my maybelline super stay better skin.

Also, this concealer has some good ingredients. The foundation however, has …
