My Acne Journey: 7 MONTHS!!!

CeraVe Healing Ointment

I took a whole week off of tret. I just wanted to take a break from it for a little bit and restart maybe next week?? I’m not sure yet. So this week, I focused on using an antioxidant. I chose vitamin c. Yes, it’s back, hah!

Vitamin C 🍊

I started using vitamin c again. Not the powder version. The essence or serum version. I started off with whatever vitamin c product that I had (Melano CC Vitamin C Essence). I used Melano for two days. Melano has a lightweight, oily, greasy texture to it. It absorbs into the skin fast and leaves a matte finish. It slightly moisturizes the skin but not by much. I’m not a fan of the texture of the product. The essence stung my skin upon application. It irritated my skin just a little bit. After a few seconds, the stinging sensation disappeared. So, what are the results from this product? The essence brightened my skin instantly after a day of use. I noticed a brighter, more glowy complexion. But, I stopped using it after 2 days because I wanted to try another vitamin c product. I’ve been using Melano on and off over the years. I think it’s time to let it go if it hasn’t worked for me for this long. The vitamin c product I’m using now is L’Oreal Revitalift 10% Pure Vitamin C Serum. I picked this product up this week. This vitamin c product contains 10% ascorbic acid. It also comes in a metal tube. One of the reasons why I chose to purchase this one. I’ve only used this serum for…I’m nearing a week soon. I started off using it at night at first then moved up to twice a day, morning and night. So far, the texture of the serum is soft and moisturizing. It has a silicone feel to it, but I’m not bothered by it. It smooths over my skin nicely and effortlessly. It feels nice, and it’s very easy to apply to the skin. I only use a pea-size amount for the whole face. I’m liking this serum a lot more compared to the Melano (texture-wise). As for results, I can’t say it. I haven’t been using it for too long. I’ll make an update on my new vitamin c serum soon.

What happened when I took a break from tret??

As mentioned earlier, I took a week off of tret. I’m glad I did. My skin needed it. I still don’t know when I’m going to restart it or if I am. My skin looks pretty decent right now. When using tret, my skin looked so thin. I lost so much fullness from my face. It’s been a week off of tret, and my skin looks normal again. My skin thickness is back! It looks more youthful and more natural-looking now. It’s not shiny and plastic-like. Tret gave me this weird, odd look to my skin. It makes my skin look smoother, but how it makes my skin look overall is a bit too much for my liking. It just doesn’t look natural or even normal. It made my skin appear more aged. Hmmmm, that’s something to think about. 🤔

At the beginning of the break, my skin was so dry. I stopped using a moisturizer because the moisturizer I was using was breaking me out (Vanicream Daily Moisturizer for Sensitive Skin). I didn’t have any other moisturizer to use. All I had was CeraVe Healing Ointment. I used it. Applied a whole bunch of it to my face. I know slugging isn’t for me, but my skin was too dry to do nothing. I love the CeraVe Healing Ointment too. It’s a versatile product and contains ingredients that I love like ceramides and hyaluronic acid. It helped to prevent my skin from drying out, but I won’t be doing this (slugging) again. It was a once in a while type of thing. It feels too sticky. It gets in my hair and makes it difficult for me to get a good night’s rest. It’s difficult to wash off in the morning too. It is oily after all.

During this break, I started a new acne product. I needed a product to treat my acne. I picked up the CeraVe Renewing SA Cleanser. I’ve been meaning to try this product out. What put me off from trying it out were the negative reviews on it. But, everyone’s skin is different. It could work. I’m currently using it. Stay tuned for my 1 week experience on this product soon! It’s coming up real soon! The other cleanser I was using was from Neutrogena. I stopped using it for now just to try out CeraVe. Neutrogena cleaned my skin and didn’t dry out my skin, but I needed a product that would help with acne. In particular, those close f*cking comedones. They’ve been hanging out on my skin for far too long! Also, it’s time to try a new acne product when I’m not using any harsh acne products.

Product Updates

Remember that eye cream I stopped using? The RoC Multi Correxion Hydrate + Plump Eye Cream. I stopped using it on my eye area weeks ago, but I started using it on my neck for a week. After a week of using it on my neck and chest area (to finish it up, need to use it somewhere), I developed a rash on my neck! It was red, swollen, and itchy. WTF. I don’t know what they did to the formula of this eye cream, but it sucks. It used to be soft, smooth, and moisturizing. Now it just burns and makes the skin itch. It’s not cheap either. 😡

Happy 7 months! 🥳 This is my last update on my acne journey. It’s time to move on to new things. I feel like this journey has run its course. I need something new. A new adventure. A fresh start. Look forward to a new update on my experience with the CeraVe Renewing SA Cleanser!

Vanicream Daily Facial Moisturizer

It’s been 25 days on tret. I’m moving on to 1 month soon! This is what happened this week!

Increasing Strength & Adding Moisturizer.

I tried to increase to a higher strength this week from what I’m using. Ugh, I burned myself again after a good streak with little to no irritation. 🤦🏻‍♀️ I should’ve known from my prior mistake. My skin was so irritated. It was reddish and pink. It looked so flushed. So painful, so sad. Super itchy! Should’ve slathered on a heavy-duty moisturizer beforehand. This burn was worse than the previous burn. Ouch! So I took one day off before getting back on tret. It took ONE day for my skin to fully heal. I was shocked how resilient my skin was. It bounced back that quick. My skin settled down after a day of nourishing my skin. Here are the skin care products I used to soothe and heal my skin. I used whatever I had, lol.

Vanicream Daily Moisturizer for Sensitive Skin:

This is the only moisturizer that I have found that actually works to heal, protect, and soothe my skin. It didn’t soothe my skin at the beginning though. It burned my skin when applied to damaged skin. When the moisture barrier is damaged, almost everything burns. This product was one of them. I still used it anyways. I needed a moisturizer with ingredients like ceramides. It was the least likely to clog my pores out of all the moisturizers I have. I find that my skin really like ceramides when it’s feeling irritated and burned. With this moisturizer, I only used it at night. Before I stopped using Vanicream Daily Moisturizer for Sensitive Skin, I was using it daily, morning and night. Maybe that was just too much moisture for my skin. Using it at night only has helped replenish moisture in my skin without going overboard. I don’t plan on using this moisturizer every single night. Just a few times a night when my skin needs it. I went back to my no moisturizer routine after my skin felt moisturized and healed. Who knows when this moisturizer will pop back in. It’s nice to have around to alleviate dry skin.

CeraVe Healing Ointment:

After applying Vanicream Daily Moisturizer for Sensitive Skin, I slugged for one night because my skin really needed it. I couldn’t take the itchiness anymore. It was getting to be too much. I took the CeraVe Healing Ointment and applied a thick layer over my facial skin, slept with it on, and woke up the next morning with less irritated skin. This product also contains mineral oil, ceramides, and hyaluronic acid. It made my skin look so poreless and smoother in the morning. Very moisturized with a nice sheen to my skin. I love keeping this product around to heal dry, itchy skin. It’s amazing stuff! I can’t slug every night. It’s too moisturizing, heavy, and sticky. It gets in my hair too and makes it sticky in the morning. It’s a once in a blue moon thing when I destroy my skin by accident.

Neutrogena Sheer Zinc Face Mineral Sunscreen SPF 50:

I don’t use Neutrogena Sheer Zinc Face Mineral Sunscreen SPF 50 as my face sunscreen at all. I use it around my eyes, on my ears, and neck. I’m on my last bottle and won’t repurchase after I finish it. I find that this sunscreen is just way too heavy and moisturizing. It seals in moisture in the skin. And that’s why I used it while my skin was irritated, dry, and itchy. This sunscreen makes a great occlusive with SPF in the morning. It felt extremely soothing on the skin.

Altruist Sunscreen SPF 50:

I love the UVB and UVA protection of the Altruist Sunscreen SPF 50, but I can’t use this sunscreen every day due to how moisturizing it is. My skin starts to get clogged if I use it too much during the week. This sunscreen worked pretty good at keeping my skin moisturized and protected from harmful UV rays as my skin healed. I love applying this sunscreen directly on my bare skin, it’s just so soothing.

Trader Joe’s Daily Facial Sunscreen Broad Spectrum SPF 40:

I’m not a fan of the Trader Joe’s Daily Facial Sunscreen Broad Spectrum SPF 40. But, this sunscreen is definitely another moisturizing sunscreen that makes the skin feel silky smooth and soothes irritated skin. I piled this sunscreen on throughout the day to increase my skin’s moisture levels. It’s not something I would use as a daily SPF, but it served its purpose during the healing process. It was nice to have this sunscreen around for that reason. I’m on my last bottle too. Another sunscreen that I won’t purchase again after I finish it. At least it’s good for something, haha.

So am I going to try to increase the strength again? Probably not. No. I’ll just wait until the weather is warmer when my skin is even more oily. I’ll just stick to the lower strength from now on unless it stops working. Tret burns are just terrible to go through. I’m glad it’s been fixed and over. I’ll try not to do it again. 😵 lol.

An update on skin care products I tried this week…

Melano CC Vitamin C Essence:

I tried using Melano CC Vitamin C Essence again. The essence felt lightweight and absorbed into the skin very quick. I loved that aspect about this vitamin c essence. But, I didn’t like the way it left my skin feeling and looking drier throughout the day. By the end of the night, my skin looked drier. I noticed some pimples too. Ugh. Why did I try this product again? The dryness and breakouts turned me off from using this essence again. I stopped using it immediately after one try. Skin felt so much better after I stopped using it. I prefer to apply my sunscreen products directly to bare skin anyways. It was nice to try out this vitamin c essence again to see if it’ll work on my skin since I have several tubes left, but I won’t bother with it anymore after this. I hope, haha. I’m currently not using a vitamin c product. I can’t find one that works well with my skin. They tend to be irritating on the skin too with little results. Oh well.

My Results.

After my skin healed, I went back on tret. I also started using Paula’s Choice Skin Perfecting 2% BHA Liquid Exfoliant again to help with skin congestion. I noticed my nose had a ton of sebaceous filaments. And the only product that I know will help with this type of skin issue (on my skin) is the bha liquid. I’m actually using it with tret at night also. I apply bha first, let it dry. Next, apply tret. I apply moisturizer (Vanicream) if my skin feels dry. If not, I skip it. I haven’t noticed any breakouts from using this moisturizer at night only. I might try to be more consistent with moisturizing my skin if it doesn’t cause any clogged pores. I love how soothing and how moisturizing it is without leaving my skin feeling and looking oily. It feels a bit sticky and tacky upon application, but it doesn’t feel that way after it absorbs into the skin. With the bha, I noticed results after using it once. My pores looked clearer and cleaner. It helped accelerate the skin purging process. My skin cleared up even more after using it again. Overall, my skin looks pretty good right now. No noticeable blemishes and no new cysts. Hopefully it all just gets better in the next upcoming weeks!

My Thoughts on CeraVe Hydrating Mineral Face Sheer Tint!

CeraVe Hydrating Mineral Sunscreen SPF 30 Face Sheer Tint

Here are my thoughts and experience on CeraVe Hydrating Mineral Sunscreen SPF 30 Face Sheer Tint! Did it work this time? Read on to find out!

My Updated Thoughts on CeraVe Hydrating Mineral Sunscreen SPF 30 Face Sheer Tint!

Why I chose this product?

I had a tube of this product that I needed to finish. It was just sitting there, and I didn’t want to waste it. So I thought I would give it another try again to see if it’ll work for me or not this time. Also, I was really fed up with my main mineral sunscreen leaving a white cast on my skin (even if it’s subtle, there’s still a noticeable white cast). It gets annoying when people start to stare, lol. I just couldn’t do it anymore. I needed a tinted mineral sunscreen that blends into the skin and hides the white cast. I’ve been guilty of walking around with a slight white cast over the summer. 😂 At least my skin was protected. But, it’s time for a change. And that is, no white cast, haha.

My first time experience with CeraVe Hydrating Mineral Sunscreen SPF 30 Sheer Tint was not good. It didn’t go well, and it just didn’t work for me. I didn’t like it at all. I stopped using it immediately when I noticed that it made my skin appear more greasy (felt moisturizing on the skin though!), left my skin looking orange, and provided no coverage. I was used to a little bit of coverage from makeup during that time. Hmmm! Let’s get into what happened to my skin while using this product again! If you missed out on my previous thoughts on this product, go here! 👈🏻

It’s a moisturizing mineral sunscreen.

Most mineral sunscreens I’ve tried are drying. This one is not. It feels very moisturizing on the skin! I love that it contains 3 ceramides. My skin seems to adore ceramides in skin care products. I noticed a huge difference in how hydrated my skin is after use. It also doesn’t just moisturize, but it helps to repair and protect my skin from dryness. I enjoyed reapplying this sunscreen each time because it helps to replenish moisture in my skin throughout the day!

Product Shade & Coverage.

I thought the shade of the product was a little too dark on my skin at first, but it seems to blend and vanish into the skin. It’s a little orangey, but it’s not too noticeable. I started off using this sunscreen as a makeup product and just blending it in to hide the white cast from my main sunscreen. But, that eventually led me to using it as a sunscreen + makeup. The product doesn’t provide any coverage at all. I could still see my freckles (not a bad thing), under eye circles (if there’s any), and a few acne marks (which are fading). I don’t think the shade of this product is too bad because I received compliments on my skin while using it. It makes me look like I’m not wearing any makeup (well, it’s not truly makeup, it’s just tinted) at all while giving my skin a natural glow. It doesn’t look cakey or heavy on the skin. Like, damn! My skin looks pretty good wearing it! My skin is currently clear, and it worked out just fine!

Breakouts? Clogged pores?

I didn’t get any breakouts from this product this time. I wonder what happened the first time. 🤔

Brighter Skin.

I didn’t expect my skin to even out while using this tinted mineral sunscreen, but it did. I noticed a more even complexion with some acne marks fading. This product contains niacinamide. I’m surprised that it worked that well on my skin. Who needs a brightening serum when a sunscreen product does it as well. My skin just keeps getting brighter and brighter. I started noticing the brightening effect after the third day.

Final Thoughts

I’m pretty shocked that this CeraVe product worked on my skin. I have yet found a CeraVe product that delivered results. This one did. Even though it doesn’t provide much coverage, it’s still a good product to use. It’s a tinted mineral sunscreen that blends easily and smoothly into the skin. I don’t have any issues with the application process with this product. I love that it’s SPF 30 too. Wish it was SPF 50! That would be awesome! I didn’t get any breakouts or clogged pores from this product. Another amazing thing that happened! I hope I don’t jinx it and start breaking out! Well, as for now, no breakouts! Also, it helped to brighten my skin. It must be the niacinamide. I’m not a huge fan of niacinamide serums or products, but this one that contains niacinamide worked on my skin while moisturizing my skin. My skin looked brighter. So far, I’m loving this product. I’m running low and need to get another tube soon! It might even become a staple in my routine.

1 Month Update on Vanicream Daily Facial Moisturizer for Sensitive Skin

Comment
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. 😮‍💨 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.

I finished my FIRST jar of CeraVe Moisturizing Cream!

Comment
CeraVe Moisturizing Cream

I officially finished my first jar of CeraVe after about 3 months. I thought it would take me much longer to finish the whole jar. But nope. I opened the jar one day and noticed that I was done with it. I hit the bottom of the jar! Yay! I’ve been waiting for this fine moment. It’s officially here! lol. Now here are my thoughts on CeraVe Moisturizing Cream after finishing the cream…

If you missed out on my posts on CeraVe Moisturizing Cream, follow the links below. 🙂

So I picked up CeraVe Moisturizing Cream…

My thoughts on CeraVe Moisturizing Cream after 1 Month!

Like before, I didn’t use the cream on my facial skin. The texture, consistency, finish of product isn’t for my facial skin. I would end up with a ton of clogged pores. So! I used it only on my body instead. The product is creamy but doesn’t feel as lightweight as I thought it was. It’s a little thicker in texture. Soft and smooth. When applied to the skin, it feels soothing and calming, especially when it’s cold. It absorbs into the skin nicely. Vanishes into the skin but leaves a thin layer of residue behind. That’s where the slight heaviness comes in. This is what bothered me the most about the cream. The thin layer of residue that it leaves behind irritated my skin. I ended up with a rash on some parts of my body like my arms and shoulders. I can’t use the cream on those parts of my body every day. It just makes my skin itchy and red. The product seems to work better for my legs, feet, and hands. That’s where I use the cream most often. No problems there! But still, the thin layer of film it leaves behind is annoying.

So CeraVe Moisturizing Cream is called a ‘Moisturizing’ cream, but it’s not that moisturizing, in my opinion. I can layer a bunch of this cream on my skin and still need more moisture. I didn’t rely on this cream to keep my skin moisturized. It’s not that great of a moisturizer. I really don’t know why this cream is so popular. Perhaps it’s because it contains ingredients such as ceramides and hyaluronic acid. And it’s fragrance-free. 🤔 But we need to consider the overall formulation of the product. And honestly, I didn’t see major changes in my skin using this cream. I just used it to finish up the jar (in which I did). BUT! I have a few more jars of this stuff to finish up. Don’t ask me why I picked up a few more. Ugh! I’m just stuck with them now. Lol. I recently opened up a new jar quick so I can get started (to finish it up). So apparently, it takes me about 3 months to finish up a whole jar. But will I purchase any more CeraVe Moisturizing Creams after I’m truly done? Probably not. I’m really not that impressed with this product. It’s pretty average. Nothing to call home about. There are better moisturizers out there. Don’t get me wrong. I don’t hate it. I just don’t love it.

The only CeraVe product I actually kinda like and use is CeraVe Eye Repair Cream (click!), but it’s not the best eye cream out there. Enjoy my review on it by clicking the link!

I hope my update on CeraVe Moisturizing Cream was helpful. Have a wonderful day. 🙂
