Two weeks after updating my skin care routine…

Cetaphil Rich Hydrating Cream

After two weeks of updating my skincare routine, I made changes…

Face Wash: La Roche-Posay Toleriane Purifying Foaming Facial Wash

I only have a third left this face wash left. Should I try something new after I finish it? I haven’t had any issues with the face wash. It feels super soft and silky on my skin. I was thinking of trying another face wash just for fun. Maybe…we’ll see after I’m done with my current one.

Moisturizers: Eucerin Q10 Anti-Wrinkle Face Cream & Cetaphil Rich Hydrating Cream for Dry to Normal Sensitive Skin

I’ve been using the Cetaphil Rich Hydrating Cream for Dry to Normal Sensitive Skin day and night to keep my skin moisturized. I’m still using the Eucerin Q10 Anti-Wrinkle Face Cream as an eye cream (new jar!). I haven’t had any issues with either lately. I’m on my second jar of the Cetaphil cream. It moisturizes, protects my skin, and keeps it from drying out. Hmm! I think it’s working!

Acne Care/Other Products: Neutrogena Stubborn Acne AM Treatment, tret,  Melano CC Vitamin C Essence

I’ve been alternating my benzoyl peroxide, tret, and vitamin c products. Using benzoyl peroxide when my skin needs it, vitamin c on other days, and tret once a week at night. I use these products with my Cetaphil cream, which has kept my skin from becoming dry and flakey. Sometimes I just moisturize without any actives. But these are the three actives I’ve been using. So far, it’s been good.

Sunscreen: Vanicream Daily Facial Moisturizer Broad Spectrum SPF 30

Still using Vanicream Daily Facial Moisturizer Broad Spectrum SPF 30 as my main sunscreen while using the others when I feel like it. I stopped using sunscreen indoors. Not because of laziness but because it’s unnecessary. All I do is moisturize my skin while indoors. I’m still trying to use up my other sunscreens. The CeraVe Tint SPF is the most difficult one to use. It’s so freaking orange on my skin! 🙁

UPDATE: Skin Care Routine

Vanicream Mineral Facial Moisturizer Broad Spectrum SPF 30

I have another update on my skincare routine.

Face Wash: La Roche-Posay Toleriane Purifying Foaming Facial Wash

I’m still using the same face wash as before. It cleanses the skin well, but it doesn’t help prevent or treat acne. It’s good as it is. I’m still on my first bottle of it.

Moisturizers: Eucerin Q10 Anti-Wrinkle Face Cream & Cetaphil Rich Hydrating Cream for Dry to Normal Sensitive Skin

Still loving the Cetaphil Rich Hydrating Cream! It’s so much better than Eucerin Q10 Anti-Wrinkle Face Cream. Well, I only use Cetaphil on my face and Eucerin for extra moisture on the skin around my eyes. I’m sure I can drop Eucerin and not notice any differences in my skin. Whatever. I’ll keep using Eucerin. It’s pretty darn cheap for what it is.

Acne Care: Neutrogena Stubborn Acne AM Treatment

I was using tret, but I stopped using it, lol. I’m currently only using benzoyl peroxide right now. Tret didn’t do much for my acne. Once I started using benzoyl peroxide consistently again, my skin started to break out and cleared up rapidly. Who knows if I’ll use tret again? Meh.

Remember that vitamin c product I was using? Melano CC Vitamin C Essence. I stopped using it. I think it was breaking me out. Not sure. It helped brighten my skin a bit (kind of). Maybe I’ll pick up using it again in a few months…

Sunscreen: I’ve been using Vanicream Daily Facial Moisturizer Broad Spectrum SPF 30 as my main sunscreen. It’s not too bad. It’s not SPF 50, but I stopped caring about that since I’m not outdoors too much. It works. Still trying to use up my other sunscreens though!

And more…. 🙁

I’m never buying this much ever again. Such a waste.

New Skin Care Routine :)

Comment
Cetaphil Rich Hydrating Cream

I have a new skincare routine! And that’s my new favorite moisturizer that’s pictured. It’s the Cetaphil Rich Hydrating Cream for Dry to Normal Sensitive Skin. Read more about it below. 🙂

Face Wash: La Roche-Posay Toleriane Purifying Foaming Facial Wash

I switched facial cleansers! I was using Neutrogena Hydro Boost Hydrating Cleansing Gel with Hyaluronic Acid Fragrance-Free. I’m still using it to remove my makeup, but I won’t purchase it again if La Roche-Posay Toleriane Purifying Foaming Facial Wash works. So far, it’s been working. Hmmm! It leaves my skin feeling much softer and a bit brighter. The face wash does contain ceramide np and niacinamide. It’s not on the skin for too long, but it feels nice when using it. The face wash gets soft and foamy on the skin. I prefer it over Neutrogena. It feels like a higher-quality face wash. The texture, and the consistency of the product. It just feels so much better on the skin.

Moisturizers: Eucerin Q10 Anti-Wrinkle Face Cream & Cetaphil Rich Hydrating Cream for Dry to Normal Sensitive Skin

I’m still using Eucerin Q10 Anti-Wrinkle Face Cream, but I won’t purchase it again after using Cetaphil Rich Hydrating Cream for Dry to Normal Sensitive Skin. Cetaphil’s product is more moisturizing and helps to repair my skin better compared to Eucerin’s product. It works better as an under-eye moisturizer and a face moisturizer. I just hope this product doesn’t break me out in the long run. I’m on my second tub of the product. Maybe it’s working??!!

Acne Care: Neutrogena Stubborn Acne AM Treatment & Tret

I’m still using benzoyl peroxide as my main acne treatment, but I’ve also included tret. Here’s my 1 week experiece using it right here:

My Attempt At Using Tret Again.

I’m trying to work my way up with tret. I don’t use benzoyl peroxide and tret together. I use it at different times.

Sunscreen: I was using sunscreen only when outdoors, but my skin became severely dry with cracked skin. And oily at the same time. It was an awful mess. So, I decided to use sunscreen every day again. It hasn’t been too bad. I’ve been using Vanicream Daily Facial Moisturizer Broad Spectrum SPF 30 most of the time. It’s pretty thick and heavy. Sort of moisturizing. I think it’s good enough for indoors. I use my other sunscreens such as…

Whenever I feel like it or when I’m outdoors. I mix my sunscreens up (not the products together, but use them on different days) and am trying to use them up still.

This is just a quick update. 🙂

Trying Vitamin C for the Millionth Time + Skin Care Updates

Comment
Rhoto Melano CC Vitamin C Essence

I took a break from tret for my skin to heal (see my 1 week experience right here). In the meantime, I thought I would give a vitamin c product a try once again. I thought about purchasing a different product, but I decided against it. I wasn’t sure if it’ll be worth the splurge. Instead of shelling out on a new product, I remembered that I still have Melano CC Vitamin C Essence. Why not try this product?!!

I started using Melano CC Vitamin C Essence for the first time in the morning. The product felt nice on the skin. It absorbed quickly and didn’t feel sticky. I enjoyed applying it to my skin. I really miss this product now. 🥲 I’m excited about the results (if there’s any). Well, not much to say about the first day. On the second day, I also used it in the morning. The product was way too strong for my skin’s current state. I stopped using it after the second day. I waited for 4 days for my skin to become less sensitive. On the last day of the first week, I started using it again. This time, with a moisturizer. Let’s see how this goes!

Some other things I have been doing:

I do have a new skin care routine. I’ll post it up when I have a minute. 🙂

Update: Skin Care Routine

Comment
Eucerin Q10 Anti-Wrinkle Face Cream

I did an update not too long ago, but here’s my current routine. I change it up every time when necessary, haha.

My eye care routine <<<

Update: Eye Care Products <<<

*My New Skin Care Routine*

Face Wash: Neutrogena Hydro Boost Hydrating Cleansing Gel with Hyaluronic Acid Fragrance-Free

I’ve been using this face wash for quite some time. It’s still working. It feels a little bit drying sometimes. It hasn’t clogged my pores or caused any skin irritation. Maybe I should stick with it. It is what it is for now. I haven’t ventured to any other face wash since. I just don’t feel like looking anymore. If it works, it works until it gets discontinued, LOL. RIP my past facial cleanser. It was good while it lasted.

Eye Care: Eucerin Q10 Anti-Wrinkle Face Cream

I started using Eucerin Q10 Anti-Wrinkle Face Cream again. I only use it for the skin around my eyes. It dried out pretty badly without it. So it seems like the cream is keeping my skin moisturized. It’s also extremely affordable. That’s why I decided to stick with it. It’s an inexpensive, pretty effective cream that works for me. It’s good for now.

Skin Treatments: Neutrogena Stubborn Acne AM Treatment

I stopped using Paula’s Choice 2% BHA Liquid. It was great at first, but I noticed that it was making my skin very oily. I also noticed new breakouts out of nowhere. This used to be a HG for me. I don’t know what happened. Well! That means fewer products in my routine. Yay! I’m happy about that. I’m trying to keep things to a minimum anyway. I am still using Neutrogena Stubborn Acne AM Treatment. I use it whenever my skin gets oily and when I notice new breakouts. It’s still good at preventing acne and fighting acne.

Sunscreen: Cetaphil Sheer Mineral Face Liquid Sunscreen SPF 50

It took me a while to pick out a sunscreen to use. I finally settled on Cetaphil Sheer Mineral Liquid Sunscreen SPF 50. Remember Vanicream Mineral Facial Moisturizer Broad Spectrum SPF 30?? That sunscreen felt thick and was supposed to moisturize the skin. It didn’t. It dried my skin out like crazy. My skin looked so wrinkled when using it. I stopped using it anywhere near my face. Even though Cetaphil Sheer Mineral Liquid Sunscreen SPF 50 is not a true mineral sunscreen, it’s working for me. I haven’t had any irritation, or breakouts using it. Maybe that one time when I was using it was a fluke. It’s working now, haha. Some quick thoughts on this sunscreen: Wish it was 100% mineral, leaves a white cast but brightens my skin, can accentuate dry skin if the skin is flaking off or dry, smooths out the skin (silicones!), makes my makeup and skin look better due to the silkiness of the product, runny but easy to apply, doesn’t look cakey on the skin, SPF 50. It’s a good sunscreen for now. Winter is coming soon and I’m hardly ever outdoors anyways. It’s better than nothing.

A new update when it changes. 🙂
