Derma E Vitamin C Gentle Daily Cleansing Paste

I ventured out to other cleansing skin care products while using Acure Brightening Cleansing Gel and Trader Joe’s Tea Tree Facial Cleanser. I picked up Derma E Vitamin C Gentle Daily Cleansing Paste. You know, just to see if it’s any better than the other two…

About Derma E Vitamin C Gentle Daily Cleansing Paste:


I love the claims of this product. They sound SO GOOD! The name of the product really intrigues me — Vitamin C Gentle Daily Cleansing Paste. Yep, CLEANSING PASTE! Reminds me of mixing and turning turmeric into a paste to remove acne scars. I actually did that before, and it worked! 😁 The only issue with that method is that it stains the skin yellow/orange. =/

This product dispenses out as a paste (what it’s supposed to be). It’s pink in color with gentle exfoliants (ancient rice). It’s not abrasive. Very gentle on the skin. The smell of the product is pretty gross (to me). The first day I used this cleansing paste I thought it was OK. It was different. It’s thick, pasty (not creamy), gently exfoliates, and brightens the skin. Awesome. On the second day, I was worried. I could feel that the cleansing paste was not cleansing my skin thoroughly. It left a nasty film on my skin after I rinsed it with water. Yuck! I tried it again that same day (at night). The result was the same. I was so worried that my pores would get clogged and followed up with another facial cleanser. The next morning (third day), I realized that I wasn’t imagining things. This cleansing paste is not good for my facial skin. It clogged my pores. I ended up with pimples because of it. And it’s due to the fact that it doesn’t rinse clean. Luckily, I didn’t use it for a whole week. My skin would’ve been ruined. Whew! I stopped using it ASAP. Honestly, I don’t think this cleansing paste makes a good cleanser or should be called a ‘cleansing’ paste. It doesn’t cleanse the skin. I wouldn’t recommend it to anyone. A good facial cleanser should leave the skin residue free. Since I have a whole tube of this stuff left, I’ll use it to exfoliate my hands. Seems to work better at that! I won’t repurchase ever again. This product was TERRIBLE!! πŸ˜‘

Differin Oil Absorbing Moisturizer SPF 30 + Thoughts

Alright everyone! ☺ I have a new (not really new) facial sunscreen! I thought I would give Differin Oil Absorbing Moisturizer SPF 30 a go once again! I’ve been having trouble finding one that is suitable for my skin type. This time around, my skin is looking so much better. πŸ™ŒπŸ» I thought, maybe this could work?? More about this sunscreen before I share my experience on it…


This is not my first time using Differin Oil Absorbing Moisturizer SPF 30 (as mentioned earlier). I have a few experiences with this sunscreen. Mostly bad? haha. Don’t think I’m weird for trying it out again. lol. Sometimes, it might work. And sometimes, it doesn’t work. After Acure Radically Rejuvenating SPF Day Cream failed on me, I’m happy that I gave Differin Oil Absorbing Moisturizer SPF 30 another chance! Read on! πŸ™‚

Since my skin is on the drier side as of late (due to being on an acne treatment), this sunscreen has been doing a great job at moisturizing my skin but also protecting it! It’s truly a 2-in-1 skin care product. My skin feels hydrated throughout the day when I have it on. It feels like a lightweight lotion. Nothing heavy. I like that. It comes in a 4 fl. oz bottle instead of a 1.7 oz (Acure). When I apply the sunscreen to my skin, I can be very generous and reapply as needed (when I’m not wearing makeup). This sunscreen absorbs into the skin pretty well. It doesn’t leave a sticky residue behind. My makeup goes over it nicely without the sunscreen balling up. Fortunately, it has not broken me out as of yet. πŸ™‚πŸ™‚ I really hope it stays that way. Even though it states that it is an ‘oil-absorbing’ moisturizer, I can’t tell if it is. My skin needs all the moisture it can get right now. With continued use, I’ll be sure to make an update on that. This has been working for me so far…
