Just Came Back From Cvs With New Products And Need Some Opinions.

Here is my current setup for the regimen, I've been using it for a week, I've started a log on it if you want to see how they're working:
Anyway, here are the products I am currently using:
Now, I just bought the Aveeno body wash and the razors and I wanted to know if they might be good to use for shaving and washing the rest of my body in the shower? Because I have bacne and chest acne... and I was hoping that switching body washes may help a bit. Also, I have to shave like every day, and those are double-edge razors with Aloe & Vitamin E embedded within them. I use the gentle cleansing wash for shaving cream.

I also think I'm allergic to the oats in Aveeno's stuff so that could be why. The body wash made me break out in hives. Funny too cuz Aveeno is supposed to be perfect for people with sensitive skin.
It's a good choice for a body wash and it leaves your skin super soft too. Don't know much about those razors but give it a try.
For your check, back, and shoulders you can always try Dan's AHA+ lotion a couple times a week. I absolutely love that stuff.

So, how long have you been on the regimen? Do my products look okay to you?

if you find that the moisturizer is making your face sting, either use Cetaphil moisturizing lotion or moisturize with aloe vera gel. I find that I need to mix my aloe with a tiny bit of glycerin (found in drugstores, including CVS) because the glycerin helps add moisture. but use only 1-2 drops because it can be very sticky if you use too much!

Aveeno products are Johnson & Johnson. I liked their soy moisturizer at one point too but it was breaking me out. Purpose is Johnson & Johnson too. Although I think they are more gentle than most, I still don't think they are great for acne-prone skin.
Lumiplexion has an excellent SPF that won't break you out. I love all the products, but no better cleanser than the green for me. I've used it for over 20 years now, and although I've tried store brand in between, I've always come back. I know how hard it is to find a good SPF that won't break you out, so I urge you to try Lumiplexion's. Don't go without SPF. BP makes your skin much more susceptbile to damage from the sun.
Good luck with your regimen.

There are also specific steps for the body and back acne regimens that are a little different than the face regimen. I'll link you there too.
