Update on La Roche-Posay Anthelios Melt-in Milk Face & Body Sunscreen Lotion SPF 100
I tried La Roche-Posay Anthelios Melt-in Milk Face & Body Sunscreen Lotion SPF 100 again. I stopped using my moisturizer (Vanicream Daily Moisturizer for Sensitive Skin), and my skin became so dry and flaky. I needed a product that would moisturize my skin. The only product that came to mind was La Roche-Posay Anthelios Melt-in Milk Face & Body Sunscreen Lotion SPF 100 (that I have). My experience using it last time was very bad. You can read more about it right here. I’m still using a mineral sunscreen, and it’s been an unpleasant experience. It’s not the worst mineral sunscreen I’ve used, but it still leaves a white cast and dries my skin out like crazy (even though it’s a tad moisturizing, just not enough). With La Roche-Posay Anthelios Melt-in Milk Face & Body Sunscreen Lotion SPF 100, at least it’s moisturizing and has a SPF of 100. Here’s my experience with La Roche-Posay SPF 100 sunscreen again this time around!
I was very hesitant about trying this sunscreen again. I could just go out and purchase a new sunscreen, but I wanted to see if this sunscreen would work first without using a moisturizer underneath. From what I remember, it’s moisturizing enough by itself. Also, I loved the way it felt on my skin. It’s so moisturizing with a high SPF of 100. So my last experience with this sunscreen was not good. I experienced burning eyes, a non-stop migraine, and clogged pores by the second day. It was one of those experiences where I thought I would never touch this sunscreen ever again. But, here I am, trying it out again just because I have it and don’t want to buy another sunscreen at the moment. Also, my skin is feeling extremely dry. I thought the sunscreen would help with the dryness in the meantime.
The first day of using this sunscreen went well, but I didn’t use it from morning to night. I only used it once in the evening. It was my last SPF application of the day. I didn’t experience any redness, itchiness, or any other skin irritations. My eyes burned a little bit but not by much. The burning sensation disappeared after a few minutes. I was able to wear the sunscreen.
The sunscreen felt soft in texture and smoothed over my facial skin easily. It feels very nice on the skin. Possibly one of the most softest and soothing sunscreens I’ve used so far. I really liked the texture and consistency of this sunscreen. It was perfect for me. Even though it’s super moisturizing on the skin, it does lean towards the greasy side, but I could deal with it because the sunscreen didn’t stick to my hairline or leak into my eyes. It melted into my skin when applied and stayed in place. The lotion isn’t messy to use. It feels like a quality sunscreen. I didn’t breakout the first time I used it either. It simply just left my skin feeling moisturized when applied and after rinsing it off. I was happy with the results.
I tried using the sunscreen again the next day. This time I was able to use it from morning until night. Unfortunately, it didn’t work out. I started to have issues. My eyes started to burn. They became red and watery. I couldn’t open them. I tried applying the sunscreen just on my face (avoiding the eye area), my eyes still burned. The smell of the sunscreen started to get to me. I also noticed my face warming up when using this sunscreen. Is this normal? Probably not. Seems like it’s not compatible with my skin. I stopped using it when I realized this sunscreen was giving me issues. That’s too bad. It works very well on my body but not my face. I tried it the second time, and it failed on my again. I can’t recommend this product as a face sunscreen. It may work for someone else, but it didn’t for me.

Update on Purito Centella Green Level Buffet Serum & The Ordinary Resveratrol 3% Ferulic Acid 3%!!
It’s decided. I stopped using Purito Centella Green Level Buffet Serum and The Ordinary Resveratrol 3% Ferulic Acid 3%. I’m really trying to eliminate skin care products that don’t provide my skin with many benefits and are oily. The two products in my routine — Purito Centella Green Level Buffet Serum and The Ordinary Resveratrol 3% Ferulic Acid fell into those categories. Here’s why.
Purito Centella Green Level Buffet Serum:
I’ve gone through several bottles of Purito Centella Green Level Buffet Serum. I still have a few more of the serum, lol. This serum is a lightweight watery gel that absorbs into the skin well. It doesn’t leave the skin feeling sticky or heavy. It just sinks into the skin wonderfully. I never had any issues with the serum. That’s why I’ve used it for so long. This serum contains 49% Centella Asiatica Extract, Niacinamide, Arginine, Panthenol, Hydrolyzed Collagen, Green Tea Extract, Ceramide NP, Sodium Hyaluronate, Asiatic Acid, Madecassic Acid. At the end of the ingredient list, some peptides. The ingredients look amazing. Also, it didn’t clog my pores either. It worked very well on my acne-prone skin. Not a single zit in sight. I was able to use it twice a day without any issues. It helped to calm redness and irritated skin while providing lightweight hydration. Unfortunately, the hydration doesn’t last long so don’t expect a surge of moisture from this serum. It’s a great serum for sensitive skin! BUT, even if the serum has really nice ingredients, I didn’t see much of a change or a huge difference in my skin. It didn’t help to improve skin texture and blemishes like it claims. It’s a pretty basic product that I don’t need, since I have a better moisturizer already. I was using the Purito Buffet Serum because it at least hydrates the skin just a little bit. Maybe I’ll use it again in the near future, but for now, I’m going to stop using it and see what happens.
The Ordinary Resveratrol 3% Ferulic Acid 3%:
I’ve been eliminating The Ordinary products one by one. The last two were The Ordinary Argireline Solution 10% and The Ordinary Ascorbic Acid 8% Alpha Arbutin 2%. The next one is going to be The Ordinary Resveratrol 3% Ferulic Acid 3%. I really wanted this serum to work. It’s supposed to help with signs of aging and skin texture. It contains antioxidants. But I’ve been trying to make this serum work for months to no avail. The serum feels very oily and greasy on the skin. The texture of this serum is very similar to the Ascorbic Acid 8% Alpha Arbutin 2%. One of the reasons why I stopped using the Ascorbic Acid serum. After I stopped using both Ascorbic Acid 8% Alpha Arbutin 2% and Resveratrol 3% Ferulic Acid 3%, my skin stopped looking oily and greasy. These serums could’ve been breaking me out too. It just makes my skin appear more shiny and feels heavy on the skin. For me, the overall formulation of the serum is poor. It sits on top of the skin and doesn’t really absorb into the skin. As for the results when using this serum, since the texture of the serum is oily, it moisturizes the skin and makes the skin look kind of glowy. That’s most likely due to the oiliness of the serum and not that it contains antioxidants. The Ascorbic Acid serums has the same effect on the skin too due to the oiliness. Once I wash my face at the end of the day, I could see very little changes in my skin. I find it only moisturizing. I’ve been using this serum for months. I think it’s been nearly a year, and I don’t think it’s working for me. I was expecting more from this product.
Another product I stopped using: Eucerin Q10 Anti-Wrinkle Face Cream & Breakouts
