Lubriderm is better than Cetaphil lotion

5 posts in this topic

I just went into the store to test out a few lotions on my skin. It turns out that the best one I found was Lubriderm. It was non-comedogenic (or however you spell that), which shouldn't clog your face.

The best part? No greasy feeling and it sinks right in!!

Cetaphil feels greasy, leaves you shiney, and doesn't seem to sink in all the way. I can't believe I've been using cetaphil lotion for 6 months. Never again

Here's the reviews

What other lotions do you guys use?

People always think the key to fighting acne is to avoid foods, but in actually it's usually what they're NOT eating that's causing it to happen. It made no sense to start with omitting the small things that MAY cause acne for SOME people. Start with the basics of nutrition. You're a human, not an accumulation of minor problems from every person! Not everyone reacts to the same foods. Not everyone has issues with wheat and such foods. Start with the basics of good nutrition and THEN see what happens, omit foods once you feel something is not working, but don't base a diet off of what to avoid, that will make you malnourished and very depressed when you have nothing left to eat! It is true that some people have issues with some foods, but remember, try it for yourself first :)

Get to the root of the problem, because acne has a relentless and endless arsenal on the surface and it is sadistic.

Testosterone is a steroid hormone from the androgen group. Omega 3 fatty acids can also help to keep the production of androgens under control. Androgens are hormones that influence sebum production and are particularly active during adolescence, which is possibly why many teenagers suffer from acne. Androgen excess may provoke or aggravate acne by inducing seborrhea (sebum). In women, androgen disorders are frequently suspected when acne is accompanied by hirsutism or irregularities of the menstrual cycle. In men, however, acne may be the only sign of androgen excess.

Do you still mix it with the Aloe Vera gel?

Definitely :) Aloe vera is awesome! That + any of your favorite lotion and if you wish, a couple of drops of pure tea tree oil. It'll feel like your face is on ice. Since the tea tree makes you feel like your face drops 20 degrees, and the aloe vera cools and the lotions soothes and protects. Ultimate moisturizer <3

I've been looking for a new moisturizer that doesn't have spf in it as it irritates my skin and I really don't like Cetaphil but it is the only lotion that seems to keep the dry, itchy, blotchy and red skin away on my face. Do you just use the regular one or is there a specific one that you use?

I just use the regular cetaphil right now, but I mix it in aloe vera since alone it's too greasy feeling. But then again I have naturally oily skin. My next purchase will be lubriderm because it is truly awesome in terms of what it does. It's a little bit more, but well worth it's weight in gold.

"goodbye shittyphil" :lol: :lol:

I actually bought "Lubriderm for Extra Dry Skin" for my dry hands a couple weeks ago. Hmm....maybe I should start using that on my face. I currently use Cetaphil, which is devils lotion.
