1 Month Update on Vanicream Daily Facial Moisturizer for Sensitive Skin

Vanicream Daily Facial Moisturizer

I remember picking this moisturizer up and hoping that it’ll become my main moisturizer. The ingredients look sooo good, the price was also not too bad, and it’s accessible where I live. All points lined up and was perfect. Here’s a quick snapshot of the moisturizer: It’s a rich, lightweight lotion that provides effective moisturization for day or night. It’s formulated with 5 key ceramides and hyaluronic acid to hydrate and retain skin’s moisture. It leaves the skin feeling soft and deeply moisturized while still being lightweight and suitable to wear under makeup. It’s free of dyes, fragrance, masking fragrance, lanolin, parabens, formaldehyde, and other preservatives. It’s non-comedogenic and gluten-free. That sounds like a dream come true moisturizer. So it’s been 1 month using Vanicream Daily Facial Moisturizer for Sensitive Skin. Here are my thoughts and experience with this moisturizer.

Texture & Application

This moisturizer is a lotion. It’s not a cream. The texture of the product is soft and smooth. It’s on the thicker side. The moisturizer glides on the skin smoothly without tugging at the skin. It takes a little bit of time to blend the lotion into the skin, but the moisturizer eventually blends into the skin. It vanishes into the skin nicely. After applying the moisturizer, the finish of the moisturizer is sticky. It doesn’t feel like it fully absorbs into the skin. It sits on top of the skin, which can feel uncomfortable and bothersome. I didn’t like the stickiness of the lotion. It made my skin feel unclean and just plain annoying. As someone with oily skin, I thought the lotion was heavy and thick on the skin. I wish it was more lightweight and absorbed into the skin better. Even when my skin was feeling a little more dry, I still thought the product was heavy and thick on the skin. The product claims to be lightweight, but it’s not. This moisturizer worked pretty well underneath my makeup. My makeup went on better. Much smoother. It just glides across my facial skin much more easily. It made my skin appear softer, smoother, and flawless.

Heals & Protects

This moisturizer is very good at healing and protecting the skin. It contains ceramides, hyaluronic acid, and squalane. I loved the ingredients in this product. The ingredients were the perfect combination for my skin and helped to heal my skin from my acne treatments/chemical exfoliants. It help to strengthen my moisture barrier when it’s damaged or experiencing a burning sensation. Out of all of the moisturizers that I have used to heal my skin, Vanicream Daily Moisturizer for Sensitive Skin was the only one that worked so far (after trying a bunch of moisturizing skin care products!!). My skin didn’t feel dry, red, or irritated after using it. On occasion, if my moisture barrier is damaged, it did burn upon application, but it wasn’t too bad. This product was the least irritating as of yet. It sat uncomfortably on my skin after it settled down. With this moisturizer, my moisture barrier felt healthy after each use. On my skin, it was extremely moisturizing. I was so happy that I had found a moisturizer that improved my skin over time.

Clogs pores??

I didn’t notice clogged pores at first, but I noticed clogged pores after using it for a month. Maybe they were there before and I was in denial, lol. I really wanted this moisturizer to work since it helped to moisturize my skin, not just lightly hydrate it. It did an amazing job at protecting my skin from dryness and irritation. But, unfortunately, the clogged pores became noticeable as time went on. I developed blackheads and tons of sebaceous filaments. Some of the blemishes were not noticeable until I stopped using the moisturizer. My skin started to break out in acne. After the acne appeared, they started to clear up rapidly. My skin became less oily and clogged. Blackheads diminished on my nose. So, this moisturizer ended up clogging my pores in the long run. Shocking? Not so much. I haven’t found a moisturizer that moisturizes my skin in years. And I still haven’t found one that works well on my skin. *sigh* Back to the drawing board…maybe…haha.

Final Thoughts

Another moisturizer down, I guess, lol. I think I’m done searching for a moisturizer for my face right now. It’s getting really annoying using a moisturizer for a month and experiencing negative side effects afterwards thinking that it was working. ๐Ÿ˜ฎโ€๐Ÿ’จ Even though it didn’t work on my face, I’m not going to remove it from my routine. I like the ingredients in this product (ceramides and hyaluronic acid), and it helps to protect and heal my skin. It works very well as a moisturizer at an affordable price. I’m using it as an eye cream and neck/chest cream instead. It works even better than my eye creams that are eye creams. Also, I’m keeping it around to use on my face (yup!) when I’m treating my skin with my acne treatment/chemical exfoliants, which isn’t often. I just can’t use it daily as a facial moisturizer, which is kinda funny since it’s called a ‘Daily Facial Moisturizer’. In my opinion, I don’t think this moisturizer is entirely bad. I mean, I’m still using it. I like the product, but it’s a bummer that it didn’t work on my face as a daily facial moisturizer.

My Results After Using Horse Cream on My Face for a Night!

GUERISSON 9 Complex Cream

So I used horse cream on my face last night. This cream right here: GUERISSON 9 Complex Cream!! I thought I would give it try and use it on my facial skin instead. When I first used the cream, I thought it was too rich, too thick, too heavy, and way too buttery for my oily, acne-prone skin. But I’ve dealing with dry, flaky skin lately. Even my Eucerin Q10 Anti-Wrinkle Face Cream wasn’t helping with the dryness and flakiness. It made it very difficult to wear foundation. My skin looked worse. Every single little dryness was accentuated. I didn’t like that at all. So after a night of using this horse cream on my face, this is what happened…

In my last post on this horse cream, I mentioned that I’ve been using it as an eye cream and a neck cream only. And it’s been working amazingly for those areas. It leaves my eye area and neck feel oh-so-moisturized throughout the day. The cream has been working very well for me. Even though I like Eucerin Q10 Anti-Wrinkle Face Cream, the horse cream takes it up a notch when it comes to moisture. It really, truly does replenishes the skin with a surge of moisture. My skin feels SO moisturized after adding it into my routine. So that’s one of the reasons why I decided to use it on my face. And of course, I have it, so why not just try it out!

When I was applying the cream to my face, I noticed that it has this silicone-feel to it, which was expected because the cream contains dimethicone, cyclopentasiloxane (twice!), and beeswax. It’s also not an oil-free cream. Obviously. It has horse fat/horse oil in it. Besides horse oil, it contains Bixa Orellana Seed Oil, Jojoba Seed Oil, and Soybean Oil. With these ingredients, I was afraid that it might clog my pores. But, good news, it’s been a fortunate experience after a night of using this cream. I woke up today with skin that’s more hydrated, smoother, and softer in appearance. The difference was pretty big. My moisture barrier feels and looks so healthy! It simply works so much better compared to Eucerin! Why???????!! ๐Ÿ˜ฅ I believe it’s the HORSE FAT! This stuff is amazing!

But did it clog my pores??? Dun dun dun…

Not that I know of yet. I didn’t notice any breakouts this morning. Just hydrated, smooth, soft skin that looks really healthy and moisturized. My makeup (foundation) went on better and looked better on my skin. My skin IS glowing! This is just insane how my skin looks so good just by using this cream on my face. None of my other moisturizers could do this. It also softened some fine lines and wrinkles too. WOW, I’m stunned. It’s too good to be true. I’ll make a new update soon on what’s going on. I just hope it doesn’t break me out! I just found something that improves the quality of my skin and actually moisturizes and gets rid of dry, flaky skin!

Stay tuned for my next update! ๐Ÿ˜ƒ๐Ÿ‘Œ๐Ÿป
