Wondering what facial washes for ance. What haveyou guys used and which one worked well and which ones didnt. Pros/cons for them as well
Been done used the Seetafile for many years but recently switched the SERAVAY Moisturizing CLeanser. Not the regular blue-label, the MOISTURIZING green-label one.
Softer and less inflammatory on skin if you have sensitive skin, doesn't have SLS like other cleansers (including Cetaphil Gentle) has.
Also has the most amusingly basic packaging. I wish it were a little stronger at removing grime. But it's the most solid choice without fucking up your sebum.
I use Aesop's parsley seed cleanser and it's REALLY expensive, but it's also amazing. it looks like oil but then you rub it between your wet hands and it makes this silky, herbaceous emulsion, which you then massage onto your skin and then rinse. Works like a dream but it's stupid $$$
Not really sure what I should be using senpai, out of the shower my forehead and face are pretty dry. But I generally have an oily face, so during the day it'll be so.
I'm looking for something to keep my face from drying out right out of the shower when I'm about to go out but won't make my face oilier as the night or day progresses.
I've been using Pan oxyl and alba botanica acnedote for my back. They both seem to work well and reduce my white heads a little. The alba botanica soothes my back when the pimples hurt so I like it. I haven't really been using them everyday so I probably don't have the best effects, but I'll continue and see how it works out.
I've been using cerave which is pretty good, my skin is definitely smoother and clearer, less redness around the nose area.
but i still keep getting random pimples popping up. It's not extreme, but its annoying that when i get one pimple to vanish another one rises somewhere else.
neutrogena 4.99. Works the best. I used to use the lab series power wash, which works about the same (but smells better), but it's 20 bucks. I can't justify spending four times the amount. I do use their moisturizer with spf though. Other things: I use a home made face mask (mud mask?) my aunt makes from time to time. Sometimes I give her a pearl necklace in return. It's weird. Another thing I have are these retinol undereye patches I sometimes wear before bed. I bought them years ago, they might be expired by now, but I was so impressed with them I bought about a thousand of them since I heard they were changing the formula. It was an investment.
PanOxyl is like the holy grail of over the counter acne meds. You used to find the prescription strength 5% at Shoppers in Canada all the time, but it seems to have disappeared...
Not on your face, yo!
