I would like to preface this by saying this is what I would do for me personally knowing what I know now about my own skin. If I were making suggestions for someone else I think this list would be very very different.

Under $50:

Heimish All Clean Balm [$17]

CeraVe Daily Moisturizing Lotion [$11]

CeraVe Healing Ointment [$9]

Australian Gold Tinted Sunscreen [$13]

This particular budget was actually a lot harder than I thought it was going to be. I prioritized Sunscreen first, because that is an important product to me and it is a product that was difficult to find something I was happy using every day. I picked the cleanser next because I knew it was going to be pricey at this budget. I really think oil cleansing has done wonders for my skin. I especially like balms. I find them much easier to use. I occasionally like to use a straight oil, but on a daily basis using something with an emulsifier is just more practical. In reality if I had to stick to this budget all the time, I would probably sub out the Heimish for an emulsifying cleansing oil like Kose or the Simple one. I just haven't used either of those yet, I wasn't comfortable substituting that for the sake of this exercise.

I don't think I would be totally happy with this routine long term. It's not as hydrating as I tend towards and it doesn't have any actives. The CeraVe lotion is nice, but I wouldn't LOVE using it. I picked this over the CeraVe cream because I find that the cream does not actually sink into my skin. It's nice over other thinner formulas, but it tugs at my skin uncomfortably if used on its own.

Under $100

Heimish All Clean Balm [$17]

Stridex Maximum Acne Medication Pads [$4]

Dear, Klairs Supple Proparation Facial Toner [$22]

Hada Labo Gokujun Premium Hyaluronic Solution [$15]

Holika Holika Skin and Good Cera Super Cream [$17] (this is discontinued, but as long as it's $17 at Amazon or CVS where I bought it I will probably keep using it)

Jojoba Oil [$8 @ Trader Joe's]

CeraVe Healing Ointment [$3] [Travel Size]

Australian Gold Tinted Sunscreen [$13]

TBH this is making me realize how much money I actually spend on my routine. GEEZ I DIDN'T NEED THIS TODAY. Essentially I just took out the CeraVe lotion and added my HG Hydrating/Moisturizing Layers. The Klairs seems like so much of a splurge here, but it really truly is one of my favorite products to use. It is very hydrating and soothing to me. I also added the Stridex because it's cheap, effective, easy to use and this is one active I know I can tolerate if I keep up my hydration/moisturization.

I think the CeraVe Healing Ointment is a true workhorse and I would never be with out it, BUT I don't actually use very much of it. I mean I bought my first 3 oz. tube 9 months ago and I don't think I've even used half of it. With the smaller budget it makes more sense to get a bigger tube because it can be SUCH a multitasker, but since I have a few more items in the way of "moisturizing" here, I would probably purchase a very small tube of the ointment (mostly for my lips and the corners of my nose) and also incorporate Jojoba Oil. I love Jojoba for cleansing and for mixing into other products. My very chapped lips also DRINK UP oils like no one's business.

I am ashamed to say this routine is still short of some things I use pretty frequently, but I would still be happy with it. It has everything I actually need.

Under $200:

Heimish All Clean Balm [$17]

La Roche-Posay Toleriane Hydrating Gentle Cleanser [$15]

Stridex Maximum Acne Medication Pads [$4]

Stratia Soft Touch AHA [$14]

Dear, Klairs Supple Proparation Facial Toner [$22]

Hada Labo Gokujun Premium Hyaluronic Solution [$15]

Stratia Rewind [$16]

Stratia Liquid Gold [$24]

Holika Holika Skin and Good Cera Super Cream [$17]

Jojoba Oil [$8 @ Trader Joe's]

La Roche-Posay Cicaplast Baume B5 Soothing Repairing Balm [$15]

CeraVe Healing Ointment [$3] [Travel Size]

Raw Honey [$7ish]

Queen Helene Mint Julep Mask [$5]

Australian Gold Tinted Sunscreen [$13]

Again these all the same products as before. The three additions I use frequently are the LRP B5, Stratia Liquid Gold, and Stratia Rewind. The Raw Honey and the Queen Helene are masks that I know work for me and are fun to use. I very rarely use the honey buy itself, but it is lovely as a mask mixed with the Klairs (thanks to u/LGBTQBBQ for that tip). I've also included the Stratia Soft Touch here because it is on my list to try. I'm pretty sensitive to actives and I think a 10% Mandelic is something I could handle.

I actually really enjoyed having to think about my routine like this. I really thought I had paired down my routine quite a bit and I suppose I have, but even the $200 budget would not be enough to repurchase everything I use on a monthly basis. This (mostly) doesn't even include things I want to try or things I have around just in case or just because. Realistically I would have a couple more wash off masks, and eye cream (even though it is not at all necessary imo), at least one other kind of sunscreen, and maybe one or two other moisturizers.

But I guess I'm that kind of extra bitch.

...and like its a hobby right? It's ok to spend money on a hobby.

At least that is what I'll tell myself.

u/swingthatwang · 11 pointsr/SkincareAddiction

hey, so a few questions -

i popped on over to the FAQ -which parts did you find most helpful? i didn't find it very helpful. could you point me in the right direction?

for choices in these products, what made you go with CeraVe? i hear it recommended a lot. what's the hype about it?

also, there's so many cerave moisturizers. do you mean [this one?] (*Version*=1&*entries*=0)

Edit: Thanks for help guys! I'm a rare lurker but I saw this on my front page and had to ask some questions! OP -ya face look good!

u/dobedobedobedoo · 6 pointsr/SkincareAddicts

I have the same requisites as you and I love using Elta MD over my CeraVe Moisturizing Lotion. The sunscreen is great by itself but I use rather drying ointments from my dermatologist so I've gotta use both. Hope this helps!

u/Devastating · 6 pointsr/BlackPeopleTwitter

Ok bro, I got you

u/snoring_portal · 5 pointsr/30PlusSkinCare

Clinique Take the Day Off Cleansing Milk - It doesn't make my skin feel tight and I haven't experienced any build-up yet, which is a huge problem with my skin and using some cleansers without exfoliation. I use micellar water after this if I'm using foundation because it doesn't get everything by itself, but for morning and non-makeup use, it's perfect. I rinse it off with water but it says you can also just wipe it off.

Heritage Store Rosewater - THIS SHIT RIGHT HERE. I don't care if it's a placebo effect, it feels wonderful on my skin, it smells magnificent, and it doesn't make me break out. I use it under Cerave Daily Moisturizing Lotion, which has hyaluronic acid, and together they moisturize my skin much better than with the lotion alone. (Pretty sure I've been drying my skin out by not moistening my skin first XD)

Cosmetic cornstarch - Brah. If your sunscreen and/or makeup leaves you looking like an oil slick, get this. It's super cheap ($1.50!!!) and is the main ingredient in a lot of makeup setter powders anyway. (I also tried the rice powder but it made my foundation weirdly patchy.)

u/Inkfan1993 · 5 pointsr/askgaybros


I’ve found it to be especially good for private areas too if your bits ever get dry or chafed from...activities

u/Rlight · 4 pointsr/SkincareAddiction

Is there anything particularly wrong with the regular bottle?

u/AlaskanFeesh · 3 pointsr/SkincareAddicts

Some things that might help:

Anything that goes near your chin (hands, chinstraps, jacket collars, pillows, etc) needs to be washed regularly and thoroughly. Try to touch your face as little as possible!

A good cleanser and chemical exfoliant can help you out. Some commonly recommended products here on SCA are CeraVe's foaming cleanser and Stridex pads (the red box, not green box). Both will help keep your skin clean and remove any bacteria that are causing you problems. It is important when using an exfoliant that you use a lotion afterwards so your skin doesn't get too dry, moisturized skin feels and looks better! Another common product here is CeraVe's lotion (there's a pump kind that's thinner, and a jar kind that's thicker and creamier).

Hydrocolloid bandages are a godsend if you have any active acne! If the blemish is 'open', cut off a small portion of the bandage and put that on the offending zit after you wash and moisturize your face for the night. By the time you wake up, most (if not all) of the fluid from the acne will be absorbed into the bandage, leaving the blemish flat and less red.

I hope this information is helpful to you! Acne can be so painful and embarrassing, but it can be managed and fixed. Best of luck! :)

u/yo_soy_soja · 3 pointsr/AskMen

Fwiw, I was asking this a couple months ago.

Every morning, I apply a moisturizer,
cleanser, and sunblock to my face. At night, I apply the moisturizer and cleanser again.

Supposedly this, in combination with being an indoor neckbeard, will mitigate much of the toll of aging on my skin. We'll see.

u/tootie · 3 pointsr/Parenting

Yeah, 1/2 cup in a kid's bathtub load. You can tell by smell if it's too strong. Swimming pool means too much, but if you can't smell it all, you put too little. Doesn't matter when you add it so long as the tub is full before you put the kid in. Mayo Clinic recipe. Just google it for more opinions.

OTC (over-the-counter) means you can get it without a prescription. It's $11 at Amazon and I've seen generic at my local CVS.

u/hplssrmantcxox · 3 pointsr/AskDocs

Try CeraVe products - they have a Salicylic Acid (SA) line (Cleanser & Lotion) that would help with your acne, and they also have a Hydrating cleanser + amazing Moisturizer creme and moisturizing lotion too.

CeraVe's moisturizing products are amazing if you have solely dry skin + no acne, but I've heard reviews about it helping clear acne too even without the Salicylic Acid. CeraVe has some sort of patent in their products that help encourage your skin to renew its cells and encourage natural facial oils to emerge and help moisturize your skin without causing pimples.
^ You can read more reviews about CeraVe and see if it works; it worked really well for my horrible dry face rash that I got as a result of radiation + my bone marrow transplant. (Face was basically peeling and couldn't breathe/felt "stuck" because I stripped all the oil away from my face using too many harsh cleansers to get rid of the dead skin and rash. I used the hydrating cleanser and noticed a difference in 3 days with the moisturizing creme + lotion - creme for the really extra dry/flakey skin and lotion for my hands/other dry skin.

I used these products: <--Read up the reviews here too for the different cleansers and see which ones would be best for your skin. You might be able to get a sample of these too if you went to a local Ulta store or contact CeraVe.

It's hypoallergenic and Dermatologist recommended for Eczema too.

CeraVe also has a $2 coupon on their website too :) I bought mine at a local CVS when they were having a great sale on it.

u/scaredofpants · 3 pointsr/Accutane

For dry hands, I recommend Lemony Flutter Cuticle Butter by LUSH. It is hands-down (pun intended) the most moisturizing product I've used on my hands. If that's out of your price range, or if you don't like strong lemon scents, Trader Joe's has a nice balm for a fraction of the price. Still a bit lemony, but fades faster.

For body wash, I've been loving Dove's deep moisture line. All my old body washes and soaps became so drying on Accutane, so I had to make a change.

For face, Aquaphor is a godsend, and is required nightly to seal in all my moisturizer and oils. Moisturizer and oils are pretty personal, I just use coconut oil and CeraVe, but I highly recommend having an open mind and being prepared for some different products. My whole routine changed for Accutane, and that's the case for many people!

Also: SUNSCREEN. Sephora will let you try samples of any products, so I'd advise you go get a bunch of sunscreen samples and see which ones you like. Some leave a white cast; some felt a bit burny due to increased sensitivity of skin on Accutane. I eventually settled on CeraVe's SPF 50--it has white cast, but didn't burn or sting.

Overall, your skin will be super sensitive. I recommend shopping at places with solid return policies, and being patient with your skin. Good luck!

u/agsrhg · 3 pointsr/SkincareAddiction

After looking at your skincare and assuming you are a dry/normal skin type as you've posted, your routine is very invasive and more suited for an acne prone oily skin. The products you use are excellent because they are dermatologically effective, but you need to cool it with all the chemicals morning and night.

  1. You shouldn't be worrying about what kind of cleanser you use but what kind of moisturiser you use for different seasons. Skin is drier during the winter so you need to use a richer moisturiser. And as you have pale skin it is also important you use a fitting moisturiser for the summer. For your skin type I recommend the hydrating cleanser, the foaming cleanser will be too drying.
  2. BHA/AHA/Retinoids are too invasive for your eye area, stay clear from your eye area unless its an eye cream specifically for your under eyes. The formulation for under eyes and face is slightly different as your under eyes are more sensitive than the rest of your face, do this and you will have less wrinkles in the long run. If you want a good eye cream for dark circles I recommend this french brand.
  3. Sure you can use BHA and AHA on your body but thats just a waste of money and time. The products you use on your face will have little to no effect on your body because the skin on your body is more thicker and resilient. I recommend exfoliating with a naturally derived product and moisturise your body as well because the moisture in your body's skin is as much important as your face. Mixing a few drops of rosehip oil to your moisturiser should help lighten the acne scars lighten over time.
  4. I don't know what kind of skin products you mean, but simplicity is best. Use a moisturiser at night and then sunscreen on top during the day.
  5. You don't need to lotion your whole body because your skin naturally produces oils to protect and moisturise itself. Make sure you do not shower or bathe in hot water because it strips your body from these natural oils, but if you have dry skin use the CeraVe lotion.
  6. You will be more efficient and less messy as you become used to cleansing, grow a pair and suck it up.
  7. Never self medicate or diagnose yourself with products you've researched on the internet, if you have rashes on your beard it is most likely because of the type of razor you use. You need to make sure you change your razor as frequently as possible (prevent bacterial infection) and also make sure the razor isn't too rough on your skin. Rashes could also be because your skin is dry (moisturise) or clogged follicles (use tea tree oil with your moisturiser).
  8. Your normal moisturiser should be fine.
  9. We don't actually reapply sunscreen, but we have sunscreen built into our foundation as well, so there is another layer of protection when we go out. Just make sure you carry a hat with you on extremely hot days, and wash your face and reapply sunscreen if you sweat during the day.
  10. I prefer the pump as tubs are tricky to use in that you could contaminate the whole tub by dipping your fingers in. Pump is more hygienic and you can add a few drops of oil to your lotion if you want extra moisture.

I LOVE AZELAIC ACID. So I pretty well thought I would live with a red face forever along with a severely damaged moisture barrier. The biggest thing that helped me was azelaic acid. I use Melazepam from Amazon. Cheap and works! It's thick at first but smoothes into my skin leaving it kinda matte. At first it itched like crazy and I wasn't using it consistently enough. Then after more research, I decided to use it up and give it a chance. Along with anything high in ceramide, my skin got used to the 20% AzA. Maybe around the 10th day of twice daily use, my skin finally started to look normal. I also switch my oil cleanser to an olive oil based one and saw even more improvement in my redness. I've just added in Vit C to my under eye area and continuing to use Melazepam around the rest of my face and neck and my ENTIRE COMPLEXION is EVEN NOW! Would never have believed that was possible. Melazepam has also minimized my SFs on my nose, has finally stopped this ingrown hair on my neck from forming (I've had it for years!!!), and has cleared all the CCs on my forehead. I repeat: I loooooove azelaic acid, specifically Melazepam!

Current routine:


Garnier Micellar Water - pink cap or Cerave Foaming cleanser

Cosrx Aha/bha Clarifying Treatment Toner

BELITAE Vitamin C Serum with Hyaluronic Acid to my under eye area and upper cheeks

Melazepam to the rest of my face and neck, especially my nose. Sometimes I wait after the Vit C but not usually since I don't use them in the same spots.

I do wait 15-20 minutes after my actives step.

SCINIC First Treatment Essence 3 skin method. My face loves this more than the Missha FTE.

SCINIC Snail All In One Ampoule or SCINIC Honey All In One Ampoule depending on the day.

CeraVe Moisturizing Lotion

A'PIEU PURE BLOCK Natural Sun Cream SPF45/PA+++ I don't see much sunlight at all but when I do, this one keeps me from turning beet red imediately upon application.

Dr. Jart+ Cicapair Derma Green-Cure Solution Recover Cream This is the best thing I've found for redness and skin barrier repair! My skin loves ceramides so much and this soothes like nothing I've found yet.

Medela Tender Care Lanolin Tube on my lips. Yes it's nip cream. I couldn't use it all up while nursing and it causes my skin to redden so it's perfect for a little lip color.


ROHTO Hada Labo Gokujun Cleansing Oil My skin reacted to Holika Holika Soda Pore B.b Deep Cleansing Oil so this is my second one to try and I'm really enjoying it.

Cerave Foaming cleanser with a konjac sponge but waiting on
Hada Labo Rohto Gokujyn Hyaluronic Acid Cleansing Foam in the mail.

Cosrx Aha/bha Clarifying Treatment Toner

BELITAE Vitamin C Serum with Hyaluronic Acid to my under eye area and upper cheeks

Melazepam to the rest of my face and neck, especially my nose like the AM.

SCINIC First Treatment Essence 3 skin method.

All depending on how I'm feeling that evening:

LJH TeaTree 90 Essence

SCINIC Snail All In One Ampoule

SCINIC Honey All In One Ampoule

Cosrx Galactomyces 95 Whitening Power Essence

Cosrx Advanced Snail 96 Mucin Power Essence

MIZON Snail Repair Eye Cream

Petitfee Black Pearl and Gold Hydrogel Eye Patch Not sure if I like these or not honestly...

Some or all of these layers followed by CeraVe Moisturizing Lotion and

Guerisson 9 Complex Horse Oil Cream

Pretty sure my shower filter, Mermosis, has also helped my skin and hair.

I also use sometimes REVITABOOST PEEL Anti-Aging Peel Pads or Cosrx Bha Blackhead Power Liquid but I skip my AzA on those days and just go back to my regular routine the following day. These are rare for me though because they make me ridiculously red again.

Things I'm waiting on in the mail:

ROSETTE Aqua Ceramide Gel

Rumase BIFIDA Snail Toner

Hada Labo Rohto Gokujyn Hyaluronic Acid Cleansing Foam

It's Skin Power 10 Formula - PO Effector

Hoping the all work well for me too!

u/department_g33k · 3 pointsr/sysadmin

I'm at a crossroads: I wash my hands a lot because I'm paranoid about germs, and I work in a field where we all wash our hands frequently because things like MRSA are common.

I can't reccomment Cera Ve enough. Super light, dries/absorbs quick, and has no real smell.

u/ThisIsALlamacracy · 3 pointsr/SkincareAddiction

When you say he washes his face with soap and water, do you mean hand soap? Depending on the type, that can be pretty harsh. For skin that is already inflamed and sensitive due to active breakouts, using a cleanser that is too harsh will just aggravate the problem. A good first step for him might be to find something more gentle, that's formulated to be used on the face.

Two ingredients to look for that can be very effective at reducing acne and blackheads are salicylic acid and benzoyl peroxide. There are cleansers that contain them, as well as other forms of product (lotions, serums, etc.) You can find low-cost products containing these ingredients. One popular one on this sub is Stridex pads. There's a lot more information about these two treatments in the sidebar, including more product recommendations.

A good routine almost always includes some type of moisturizer, especially if the person is using salicylic acid or benzoyl peroxide, which are both known to be drying. A good basic one that is unlikely to break him out further is Cerave Daily Moisturizing Lotion. I think this one also comes in a small travel size, if he wants to get that to start with to test it out.

u/WhattheNorris · 2 pointsr/Random_Acts_Of_Amazon
  1. CeraVe Lotion

  2. Vicks Warm Humidifier for large rooms and cold days, and Cool Mist Humidifier for hot days and cold rooms. Especially nice in fall with flip-floppy weather.

  3. Unpasteurized Honey for ALL your delicious honey needs. With allllll of those honey benefits left in and untouched. Tea, face & hair masks, delicious marinades and desserts. YUM

  4. Silicone Vibrating Facial Cleanser for your exfoliation needs. No smelly brush heads to replace, easy clean, feels ahmazing.

  5. Ice/Hot Water Bag these are a life saver for period woes. I don't get cramps but I do get horrible low-belly queasiness that soothes itself when warm and cozy.
u/4point2slc · 2 pointsr/SaltLakeCity

try this lotion, non irritating and fragrance free. I hate all other lotions now. They sell at walgreens/cvs and I think Target

u/[deleted] · 2 pointsr/SkincareAddiction

I have a quick question ova heah...

current products:

  1. Benzoyl peroxide facewash

  2. CeraVe moisturizer. it is de shit.
  3. Humphrey's witch hazel
  4. a 0.05% Tretinoin cream (I've been using it for 2 years, upped from 0.025% as of a year ago)
  5. Neutrogena grapefruit facial cleanser for body acne.

    current routine:

    Morning: witch hazel, benzoyl peroxide, CeraVe

    Night: benzoyl peroxide, CeraVe, tretinoin

    the question:

    Should I use a mild cleanser for morning and night instead of benzoyl peroxide? the peroxide + tretinoin is an effective couple, but I fear it might be too strong for my combination dry/oily acne-prone skin. I get a few breakouts here and there (currently suffering from one because of climate changes/plane) but I think I should slow down on the benzoyl peroxide. Any suggestions to spice up my routine?

    (also a massive thank you to the beautiful mods of this perf subreddit <3 I seriously spend 90% of my time on reddit here!)
u/CTCNCSU · 2 pointsr/wicked_edge

I personally use Nivea Double action Q10 Balm after shaving and haven't had an issue with dry skin afterward.

On days I don't shave, I use Cerave Moisturizing lotion. It has ceramides and hyaluronic acid, super lightweight, absorbs fast, and won't leave you feeling greasy at all. PH balanced and non-comedogenic (so it won't break you out).

Before I apply my balm/lotion, I apply some Thayers Alcohol-Free Witch Hazel as it'll help your skin better absorb the lotion/balm.

If neither of those looks like good options, I'd suggest heading over to /r/SkincareAddiction and hopefully they can help you out!

u/PremiumGoose · 2 pointsr/TheGirlSurvivalGuide

Have you tried not exfoliating? Maybe just lather up with soap? How often do you change your razor? After you use it I recommend rinsing it, then drying it with a towel so it doesn't not rust or degrade as fast.

I have been trying different lotions for years. In the US this lotion is the best one I have found by far. You can get it at Walmart. I used to get super itchy after showering, it was unbearable. I bought different towels and use lotion and I've been set ever since. It could also be your detergent that is a problem.

u/ms_kittyfantastico · 2 pointsr/SkincareAddiction

If you want to stick with Cerave, their moisturizing lotion is pretty good!

u/GlassRockets · 2 pointsr/SkincareAddiction

Sure! I like to keep my AM routine pretty simple because after my first period class I work out for an hour so I have to wash my face again anyways (I use micellar water)


DIY water soluble oil cleanser or

CeraVe hydrating cleanser (with/without konjac sponge)


Timeless Skin Care 20% Vitamin C Plus E Ferulic Acid

Wait 15 minutes


La Roche Posay Anthelios xl spf 50 fluid ultra light (PPD 42)


Depending on how dry my skin is I use either Trader Joes nourish antioxidant facial moisturizer (super underrated in my opinion, has lots of beneficial ingredients)

Or CeraVe moisturizing lotion

u/uncleoperation · 2 pointsr/malefashionadvice

it's been said to you already but a ton of people have success with CeraVe products. I was in a very similar situation as you, in terms of skin and what I wanted out of a product, and their hydrating cleanser and their moisturizing lotion have done wonders for me. 100% recommend them both.

For what its worth, I use Stridex Red exfoliating pads as well (after my shower, 20 minutes before I apply the lotion).

u/Imnotafraidofaspider · 2 pointsr/SkincareAddiction

Yup also Cerave. Here is a link where you can buy it. I'm not entirely sure why it gets overlooked here. Everyone goes straight to the cream but it seems to cause lots of problems for many people. This stuff is a lot lighter and will not make your skin feel oily or shiney.

u/kbyee · 2 pointsr/SkincareAddicts

Get gentle unscented face wash and gentle unscented moisturizer. “For all skin types” these are the best available in my opinion.

Same here!

Why is it sometimes so intense right before I want to go to sleep?

I’m trying to figure out a similar problem right now with my intense itchiness (sometimes more at night).

I’m going to try CeraVe, since it’s highly rated on Amazon.

We might have completely different problems though.

u/Lutya · 2 pointsr/SkincareAddiction

As a tip, the only benzoyl peroxide I can find that I like is the “moisturizer” in the AcneFree sensitive skin kit. I buy the kit for $20 and toss everything but the last step. I think Paula’s Choice makes a decent one but buy the 2.5% one. The clear series version is very harsh to start.

Here is my routine if it helps you. Please keep in mind that using an AHA and a BP might be really harsh on your skin. But after a lot of trial and error, this is my go-to routine.

CeraVe Foaming Facial Cleanser

COSRX AHA 7 Whitehead Power Liquid

AcneFree 3 Step Acne Treatment Kit for Sensitive Skin - just use the 3rd step - Benzoyl Peroxide Lotion

CeraVe Daily Moisturizing Lotion

u/nico0225 · 2 pointsr/SkincareAddiction

I've been using this lotion in the morning and it works great. I used to use a retinoid from TheOrdinary but it ran out and my parents won't let me buy another one because they think it isn't worth it. Is it fine if I use this cerave lotion both as an AM moisturizer and a PM moisturizer?

u/mwuah908 · 2 pointsr/SkincareAddiction

Aww I'm sorry to hear that! I really wanted the OCM to work because it seems like everybody on /r/SkincareAddiction has had such wonderful results from it sigh. I wash my face with the CeraVe Hydrating Cleanser and I gently exfoliate with a facial brush (this one is my favorite). I apply CVS Acne Treatment Gel to my larger, more recent pimples. I then apply two acne treatments prescribed by my dermatologist, Acanya and Retin-A-Micro. And finally I moisturize with either Ponds Dry Skin Cream or CeraVe Moisturizing Lotion. I've just recently been trying out the CeraVe moisturizer and it's been working out pretty well (:

I do this routine twice a day. Haha sorry that list was so extensive but it doesn't take that long actually. What's your routine like?

u/abby89 · 2 pointsr/Wishlist

Are add-on items okay? If yes, this lotion will combat desert winter skin.

Cerave Moisturizing Lotion is £10 on Amazon. If you live in London you can have it delivered by tomorrow evening for free using the Amazon Prime trial. You might also be able to be in some shops in the UK, I don't know.

This moisturiser has a 5/5 rating on Paula's Choice's beautypedia. I have it myself and it's really good, in my opinion one of the best moisturisers you can buy in the UK.

You could also order the Paula's Choice moisturiser from their website. It would take a few days to get to you, though.

u/PhillipMB · 1 pointr/malefashionadvice

Check out the /r/SkincareAddiction side bar. Here are some favorites they rave about (and I use myself with good results):

  • CeraVe oil-free moisturizer - this shit makes your skin feel so soft and good. I literally smile when I apply this.

  • Elta MD oil free sunscreen - sun screen that doesn't leave a white residue after applying, doesn't clog pores, etc.

  • Cetaphil gentle cleanser - I don't personally use this, but it's a very gentle cleanser and shouldn't hurt your skin. Good way to get rid of the dirt on your face at the end of the day.

    You should go and read the side bar and do your own research before you use anything though.

I use this stuff for dry skin. I don't have eczema, but I know people who use this stuff for it and say it works wonders.

u/ItsOkayToLurk · 1 pointr/SkincareAddiction

If you do have access to a dermatologist they're going to have you introduce, at a minimum, a moisturizer and sunscreen. You can take initiative and get what r/skincareaddiction will tell you is the holy grail products.

CeraVe is great for beginners for both your moisturizer and sunscreen.

I would talk to your dermatologist, or even doctor, about getting Tretinoin. Sadly, if you don't have an insurance that will cover it it can be expensive. There are coupons available, though. If you don't have insurance I would talk to your pharmacist about potential discounts.

CeraVe Lotion is lightweight and fragrance free. It has good ingredients too. The cream version (in a tub) is heavier so be aware of that.

Gold Bond Men's Essentials is good too. It has a nice scent to it, but it's not too strong. It has a bunch of nice ingredients like urea, vitamin C, niacinamide, and peptides.

I try to keep mine simple while still doing what I can to prevent further damage. I didn't take care of my skin at all in my 20s so I'm undoing damage now, but the vitamin C serum and sunscreen combo have helped a ton. I have fairly sensitive skin, and it gets easily dehydrated as well.


u/othersidewrites · 1 pointr/TwoXChromosomes

First of all, I agree with the suggestion that you check out r/skincareaddiction. More specifically, without knowing more about your skin, here is what I'd recommend for you:

  • A very simple facial cleanser like this CeraVe one - or check out the list they have on the sidebar in Skincare Addiction. Use this once in the morning and once at night before bed

  • Stridex pads in the red box. These will help with your acne/ingrown hairs. You can use it on your face, arms, wherever. Start off using this once every day or every other day...You don't want to stress your skin out by doing too much too fast.

  • A simple moisturizer like this. Use it after washing your face (or after using your Stridex pads).

    For your lips and nails I highly recommend getting Aquaphor Healing Ointment to use on both your lips and your cuticles. Aquaphor has a different product designated for lip treatment but IMO the healing ointment works much better on dry lips (plus it's multi-purpose).

    Also, if you can afford it, go get a manicure (yes it is possible for men to get manicures...they can clean up your nails for you). Then try to maintain the work they've done on your own with your nail clippers/scissors.

    For your hair since you haven't told us too much about it... If you can afford it, go get your hair (and beard?) cut professionally and ask the stylist for very specific tips and product recommendations. Ask them how you should be styling your hair and how often you should be washing it and getting it cut.

    Good for your for working on self-improvement! Good luck!

Hey! The one thing I wish I knew when I was a teenager was to stop using the harsh stuff specifically made for acne. The proactive is probably irritating your skin and causing more acne, especially since you said you have dry skin. I whole heartedly believe the more simple the routine, the better. Acne is really just caused by dirty/dehydrated skin. Once the acne is there, it can be treated with certain harsher topicals, but starting with a routine that will gently clean your skin and keep it hydrated will keep the acne popping up in the first place.

tbh I would trash the proactive and that neutrogena moisturizer. I've used both, Proactive ruined my skin and that moisturizer didn't moisturize nearly enough for me. I would get the cerave foaming face wash and the cerave daily moisturizing lotion. I was having skin issues last year and started using just these two products and my skin made huuuuuge improvements. I still use them daily. (I'm only 22 btw) Moisturizing is really the key to clear skin.

Also, I know this is super annoying to hear, but just drink a shit ton of water. It's the easiest thing you can do to help your skin and it truly does make a difference. If you can, stay away from dairy. Dairy is literally just loaded with cow hormones meant for a baby cow to grow. Humans don't need cow hormones, and thats why dairy makes a lot of people break out (including me) but thats a rant for another time.

Hope this helps!!

Hey, new here to ScA. I saw this thread was active even after being posted some days ago; so I signed up with hopes to become an active member of the community :)

Little about me: I haven't been doing skincare stuff all that often. In fact, I'm quite new to it. In addition, I'm currently rather young, and pursuing skincare in the hopes that once all of the 'problem areas' of my skin are clear, I can establish a daily 'up-keep' routine; preferably as minimalistic as possible (anti-bacterial soap & moisturizer).

Anyhow, the below is the information relative to my current situation. Feel free to flame me for what I'm doing incorrectly; although I would greatly appreciate hearing the reasoning behind your opinion(s). Looking forward to hearing some feedback and, hopefully, contributing at a later point (perhaps when I'm more informed on the matter).

Skin type: Blemish Prone (per my take on the guide)

Current routine:

  • Morning:

    • [Shower] Dove Deep Moisture Body Wash (excluding facial application) (

    • [Shower] Neutrogena Rapid Clear Foaming Scrub (SA 2% - facial application only) (

    • Equate Beauty Spot Treatment (BP 10% - facial application only (spot treatment)) (

    • Neutrogena Rapid Clear Daily Leave-On Mask (BP 2.5% - applied everywhere spot treatment wasn't - facial application only) (

    • CeraVe Moisturizing Lotion (Hyaluronic Acid - face & neck application) (

  • Evening (12hrs later):
    • Same as the morning

  • Occasionally used:
    • Hibiclens (Chlorhexidine gluconate solution 4.0% w/v - Spot treatment applied via directions on bottle with q tip - tested extensively via separate patches of skin) (
    [?] Applications are extremely conservative, but becoming less-so over time

    Note: In addition, I'm changing bedding, towels, and wash-cloths often.

    How long: I've been using the above routine consistently for around two to three months now. And although my skin is getting better, the transition has been extremely slow. At times it causes me to wonder if there are things I can be doing differently. My motto when doing this has resembled something of "Rome wasn't built in a day". In that time I've effectively reduced all cysts, nodules, and pustules down to papules and open/closed comedones. I am happy with the progress that's been made thus far, but I am working towards clear skin altogether.

    Anything new: Pimples will appear (and re-appear, respectively) from time to time, but I usually am able to eliminate said blemishes within the realm of a week (or sooner). I figured this was a good sign. Other than that, I speculate that I have found some instances of staph infection on the surface of my skin, and am planning an appointment to the dermatologist when I get the chance.

    Location: Arizona (aka the surface of the sun). I feel this will prompt quite a few responses regarding sunscreen, and I have recently embraced the idea of including it within a routine; especially in my recent quest to eliminate the vestigial red-marks (PIH?) lingering on my skin.

    Matters of concern:
    I'm very liberal in my application of the above BP 10% 'spot treatments'. This my be irritating my skin unnecessarily, but I haven't experienced any obvious irritation. I'm also considering purchasing more Hibiclense with the intent of wide-spread usage (in an effort to clear the additional acne from my chest and back), but I don't know how effective that would be considering it wouldn't penetrate the skin like BP.

    Of course, thank you all again for the (potential) input. I greatly appreciate anyone who puts in the time to help a new-comer like me. <3

Issue: acne breakouts among face, neck, chest, and back

Skin type: combination, very oily T-zone

Current routine:

AM: Cleanse with kaolinite clay, BP wash on face, Selsun Blue on body. Moisturize face with Murad Skin Perfecting Lotion and Murad Oil and Pore Control. Moisturize body with Cerave Daily Moisturizing Lotion or B&BW Body Cream

PM: Same as morning. Night face moisturizer is just Cerave Night Cream.

Now, this routine is working pretty well, and I definitely attribute that to the Murad products. I was wondering if there was anything similar that I could use for my body and/or in place of the Cerave Night Cream. One thing I noticed was that the Murad Skin Perfecting Lotion has retinol in it and I feel like that makes the biggest difference for me. Any combination of products doesn't seem to work as well if there isn't some sort of retinoid present.

u/madame_flowerbitch · 1 pointr/SkincareAddiction

Carmex body lotion mixed with CeraVe lotion because I was consolidating body lotions. It works surprisingly well...

u/GoblinTart · 1 pointr/SkincareAddiction

This happens to me a lot. I typically have messy hair, so I don't really bother with that, but the rest of my routine is as follows:

u/Puppywanton · 1 pointr/AsianBeauty

I don't see why not, moisturizing in general helps with eczema. I would only use it if your skin is intact though. If you have an active rash that's weeping I would avoid it due to the high amount of lactic acid in this. If you have dry skin and want to prevent eczema or if your skin has lichenified from an old rash then yes, this will definitely help. A better lotion that you can use anytime, anywhere would be this

u/BreezyOG · 1 pointr/SkincareAddiction

My current routine:
wet face

apply CeraVe Foaming Cleanser(

After having applied cleanser to all of face I use this brush for approximately one minute anad then I rinse my face with water(

After using the brush/finishing the cleansing process I use one of these pads and I apply it to all of my face

I let my face air dry for like 30 seconds after using the stridex pad and then I apply this moisturizer lotion (

I believe that I need to start using some sort of sunscreen, no? If so what should I go for? I don't really know where to look for them just by searching "facial sunscreen" on amazon. ( This one looks good based on the reviews but 1.7 ounces for $25 is kinda pricey considering that I'll be using the same amount of sunscreen as I would for my lotion. I have normal skin. Any advice on my current routine or input on what sunscreen I should get that's great for the price would help. Thanks.

u/ManicPizza · 1 pointr/SkincareAddiction

Thanks! My skin is not terribly sensitive but my eyes are. They get sore even when I put stuff just on my neck! But maybe of these things are very delicate they might work

Do you mean this CeraVe and this La Roche?

u/skillaz1 · 1 pointr/SkincareAddiction

Okay then I'll stop using it when my eucerin urea cream is delivered(hopefully tomorrow). Few questions, is the urea cream hydrating enough as a moisturizer? If not then I'll try to buy the CeraVe facial lotion u recommended. Is this the right one?

And what more products do you recommend? Since the shipping is like $13 I want to get more products that are hard to get in Europe.

u/JustRestin · 1 pointr/eczema

my advice for scratching. Find convenient lotion products that you can keep at hand.

I have on my desk.

I have in my car.

When I catch myself scratching, I just dab some lotion on instead.

Try to replace the scratching habit with a moisturizing habit. The key is to make it super convenient to get to the moisturizer.

u/Osubu · 1 pointr/aznidentity

I use Cerave's Moisturizing Lotion once in the morning and once at night before bed.

    Recommendations for a Hypoallergenic moisturizer and Sunscreen
u/GardenFungus · 1 pointr/SkincareAddiction

It's definitely dry, what I don't know is if it's dry and oily or just dry cause it's winter, I don't remember it being this dry couple of months ago but atm it hurts to frown etc. my cheeks feel normal most the problem is forehead.

I was using Simple Kind to Skin Moisturising Facial Wash and sebamed clear face care gel (which tbf doesn't feel very moisturising but works great at fighting spots).

either way if it's just dry and not dehydrated a softer cleanser such as Avene Extremely Gentle Cleanser - 200ml (which apparently is non foaming according to SCA) and a new moisturiser; CeraVe Moisturizing Lotion (which is apparently good for dry to normal skin will help)

I don't have a sunscreen yet but I live in the UK and dont use an AHA so not hugely worried.

u/MangoWhoDidNotLive · 1 pointr/SkincareAddiction

Skin type: oily(?)
current routine: moisturizer on affected area every morning and night [tried out cerave daily moisturizer lotion, and now trying out cerave pm facial moisturizing lotion]

So a bit of background, I always had a dark patch on my face just under my lip, which you can slightly see here

I decided to try to combat my acne by using products such as [paula's choice BHA]
cerave hydrating facial cleanser and cerave daily moisturizer lotion

but then eventually the dark patch on my skin got really dehydrated (? I'm only saying it's dehydrated because of how it's all dark and textured is because of how its all gray and textured, although I dont know if it is infact dehydrated or something else)

I didnt know what was causing this to occur so I stopped using all my products and although all my acne came back the dry patch stayed [I stopped using products for a little under 2 months until I succumbed to the temptation to use the earlier mentioned moisturizers on that area] I honestly dont know what to do at this point, I know the FAQ says that after you feel like you've tried everything it's time to see a dermatologist, but I'm hoping someone has experience with this to help me, I dont know what exactly I should be looking under because on the surface it looks like really dehydrated skin but maybe I should be looking under a different topic? or should I just go off and head to the nearest dermatologist asap?

u/Hotpwnsta · 1 pointr/malefashionadvice

Whatever you prefer! I've seen people just use one or pick a combo like use this during the day, this to cleanse, and this at night. I'd just start with the lotion or regular cream (not night cream) and see how it does then expand your arsenal from there.

u/kiyyou · 1 pointr/SkincareAddiction

The issue(s) you need help with: I feel like a skin care disaster, I definitely need help developing a routine.

Skin type: Combo I guess? I have no idea. Some parts of my skin are dry and sensitive, like my eyelids. Others can be oily like my forehead. The pores on my nose are humongous and I'd like to reduce them. I was told my arms have keratosis pilaris but I never followed up with that.

Routine: I shower exclusively at night, occasionally using Public Goods Moisturizer and Lotion afterwards. I had been using Cerave but i got suckered into good marketing. I switch between using Ivory Aloe, Public Goods Body Wash, and Public Goods Bar Soap on Salux Wash Cloths. I was using a new loofah every month but I switched to the wash cloths and saw an improvement. Since I have three I was going to rotate them every few months but I realize i should probably wash and rotate them more often. I was also considering getting the Super Hard ones because my skin doesn't seem to be clearing up like it did when I first started using the cloths.

Location: Texas, USA

PM me for photos cause I don't wanna put my face on the internet

u/bette_noire · 1 pointr/AsianBeauty

It's this one that looks like body lotion. Cerave Moisturizing Lotion The consistency is thicker and more emollient than the PM for face, but not add thick as the cream in the tub.

u/getyashinebox · 1 pointr/malefashionadvice

care to recommend a regimen and some affordable products? right now i'm using just this as a moisturizer:

btw, i never wash my face with soap and have never had an issue with acne or oily skin.

u/aonesaucy · 1 pointr/Minoxbeards

They also make one specifically for the face with spf in it, but the normal one is pretty good for me.

u/soccerperson · 1 pointr/Minoxbeards

This stuff?

I've read it's good to use a moisturizer with vitaminc c and hyaluronic acid. Looks like this lotion has hyaluronic acid. Do you have any experience with using vitamin c? Supposedly it's for anti-aging/wrinkles

u/Jazzyjose8 · 1 pointr/SkincareAddiction

This is a basic routine that I think is great for anybody
Cleanser: you said you have dry skin so you need a more hydrating cleanser

Chemical exfoliant: I recommend a AHA exfoliant from Paula's choice AHA's are generally good for dry skin and not as drying as salicylic acid

Sunscreen: in the AM is a definite must for anything wrong with your skin really I recommend the cerave am moisturizer (make sure weather you pick that or not you get a sunscreen with at least spf 30)

Moisturizer: I also recommend you get the cerave moisturizing lotion
I said mainly all cerave products cause they have great ingredients and are pretty affordable for most but try them out for your self and see how u like it idk about a hydrating cleanser though

u/gotti9660 · 1 pointr/Accutane

It really is just all about being persistent. Usually what I do when I have problems with being very dry (happens once a week or so for me) is ill start with the CeraVe in the tub in the morning and put on a fair amount, then I use the CeraVe Lotion (which is different than the tub) and I apply that several times throughout the day. I keep a bottle of this on my desk at work and at home. Then as soon as I'm getting ready for bed, I apply another thick batch of the CeraVe in the tub again. Have you also tried Aquaphor? Everyone's skin is different, some skin likes Aquaphor better which is more Petroleum based than the CeraVe which is more of a cream -- personally, I just don't like the greasiness feeling of the Aquaphor, so I'm thankful CeraVe works for me. I've been very happy with all of their products.

u/spoinkaroo · 1 pointr/SkincareAddiction

This probably belongs in the stupid questions thread but what is the difference between cerave in the tub and cerave in the bottle? (shown here

u/CerezatheLittleOne · 1 pointr/NoStupidQuestions

Shave in the direction the hair is growing, afterwards use a 2% salicylic acid product which will reduce redness and inflammation, and use a moisturizer which will also reduce redness and inflammation afterwards. If you use the products I link to it will definitely help you, but there are thousands of similar products so feel free to check them out. Please don't listen to those other people, hot water will dry out your skin and make red bumps even redder especially if you don't moisturize. As for cutting yourself, you have to be more careful and don't feel the need to stretch your skin while shaving. If you do shave in the shower, cutting yourself will be easier cause there's no mirror.

u/esco123 · 1 pointr/eczema

CeraVe Moisturizing Lotion (12 oz)

How about that?

It has ceramides and Hyaluronic acid

...i just noticed the cream i linked to before is sent from Japan so I'll have to wait while for delivery

What kind of body moisturizer do you use? I had a patch of skin on my calf similar to the skin condition in your photo for a couple of years. Nothing seemed to get rid of it until I started using a new body moisturizer a month or so ago. It’s nearly all gone now. If it’s helpful, I’ve been using Cerave.
