Sunscreen - Jack Black - Performance Remedy Oil-Free Sun Guard SPF 45

A zinc-based combo (physical and chemical) sunscreen that I find comfortable to wear. Most make my skin itch and crack. This one goes on a little thick and white, but it soaks in and is mostly matte. It gets a little shiny as the day goes on, but not bad. I can wear makeup over it, but it is not perfect for that. The m/u drags over it a little. I like Blue Lizard sunscreen, but this has a higher …Read more

Moisturizers - Neutrogena - Hydro Boost Gel-Cream Extra Dry Skin

My skin is beginning to lose elasticity. This isn't really a moisturizer, but a skin plumper. I use it overnight under my eyes and in my "parentheses" lines (naso-labial folds). The way I use it is after a shower or washing my face, I tap some of this onto those areas to hold on to the moisture, then I use a regular moisturizer on top of it (and on my whole face.) I wake up …Read more

Shampoo - Free & Clear - Shampoo for Sensitive Skin

4.0
Created with Sketch.

12 days ago

It takes a lot of product to get a lather going, so I use a lot. It doesn't have any slip to it, so you can't spread it around easily to clean every spot. It does a good job of cleaning the hair and rinsing out, so it's a good no-frills shampoo. I've been using this for 2 weeks along with the matching conditioner to let my scalp and neck heal from an allergy breakout. This …Read more

Conditioner - Free & Clear - Hair Conditioner for Sensitive Skin

I got the shampoo and conditioner after one of my hair products gave me an itchy break out. I wanted to go on a hair "detox" to eliminate whatever was causing it. I've been using this for 2 weeks now. It's just okay. (I like the shampoo better) The conditioner is thick and has very little slip. You have to kind of "pat" it onto the hair to make sure all the …Read more

Lotions/ Creams - CeraVe - Moisturizing Cream

4.0

12 days ago

I like this as a body cream, not for my face. I use it right after I shower or after washing my hands. As a body lotion, it is not greasy, but leaves my skin nice and smooth. I feel protected from the elements with none of the grease or wetness that other lotions have. It is as lightweight as it gets. I can tell it's on because it makes the back of my hands shiny. I think there must be a …Read more

It's mostly vaseline and lanolin, but I like it. I usually use aquaphor. This works for me just a bit better. Aquaphor doesn't last all night. I still wake up with dry lips. This seems to last longer, as I wake up without cracked lips. It's very soothing. I have no issues with it, and that's a good thing in my book. It is supposed to sit on the lips a little to form a …Read more

Gels/ Soaps - Unlisted Brand - Dr. Jacobs' Naturals - Exfoliating Castile Bar Soap - Coco Loco Limeade

4.0

Picked this up at Stop N Shop. Not cheap. Close to $5, but it is a large bar that will last. Nice gentle scent. A balanced blend of coconut, lime, and rosemary. The coco loco name makes it sound strong and bold, but it is a subdued scent. Herbal and tropical and not obnoxious. Nice in the shower but not super long-lasting on the skin. The soap has a very nice lather but didn't strip my skin …Read more

Cleansers - Olay - Gentle Clean Foaming Face Cleanser for Sensitive Skin

2.0

It is gentle and does a nice job of cleaning without drying skin. But it is sticky sticky sticky. It takes a while to rinse and even then, I feel unrinsed residue up near my ears and temples. It could work if you only use a tiny amount and then spread it around. I just didn't like the feeling.

Moisturizers - BIODERMA - Sensibio Light Soothing Moisturizing Cream - Sensitive Skin

3.0

10 months ago

This is a light-medium amount of moisture. It's similar to Neutrogena Oil Free sensitive skin lotion, but this is a touch "heavier" feeling and not as liquidy. It goes on with more slip. Sometimes I like a bit of a barrier feeling when my skin is sore and sensitive. This is okay for that. It didn't add any calming benefits other than just plain moisture with nothing …Read more

Sunscreen - SKIN AQUA - UV Super Moisture Milk SPF50+PA++++

Got this from YesStyle for $11 something. Cheaper than most US sunscreens! This is lightweight and goes on clear. Awesome. It didn't dry me out, exactly, but it must have a high % of zinc oxide in it, in addition to the very good UVA blocker Uvinul A plus. I don't do well with a lot of ZO. This sunscreen leaves a dry feeling on my face and fingertips. I expect it to be less annoying in …Read more
