...without irritating your skin. I really don't want to buy a product that will make me break out & I just started the regimen.

Right now I use the Make Up Forever HD Foundation.

AM: CeraVe foaming cleanser

Paula's Choice 2% liquid BHA mixed with Paula's Choice vitamin C serum

Acne.org BP

Acne.org moisturizer

Paula's Choice SPF 30 sunscreen (physical sunscreen, do not use chemical sunscreen on the face, more likely to break out)

 

PM: CeraVe foaming cleanser

Paula's Choice 2% liquid BHA mixed with Paula's Choice vitamin C serum

Acne.org BP

Acne.org moisturizer

 

1x per week: chemical peel (40% lactic acid or 30% glycolic acid)

 

Be hopeful and grateful at all times! Sunscreen is my BFF.

I looooove make up. You should never break out from your make up.

Your skin care products should be your base, most of it being absorbed into the skin. Make up is designed to sit on top of the skin.

I just use my cleanser to remove my makeup. Cetaphil works just fine for me to remove all of my makeup.
be so happy with the way you are | be so happy that you made it this far

I use these organic makeup wipes made for sensitive skin. I wouldn't advise using only a cleanser as a makeup remover. I've done that before and then when I dry my face on a towel I see all these foundation residue wiping off! So now I use makeup wipes and THEN my cleanser.

[CURRENT REGIMEN]

AM:

Wash with La Roche-Posay Effaclar Foaming Gel (European version) + Clarisonic Mia

Apply CeraVe AM Moisturizer w/ SPF 30

Apply Aczone (dapsone) 
 

 

PM:

Wash with La Roche-Posay Effaclar Foaming Gel + Clarisonic Mia
Apply CeraVe PM Moisturizer 
Apply Epiduo (adapalene + benzoyl peroxide)
50 mg of Spironolactone 

 

[CURRENT STATUS]
90% clear

I use unscented baby wipes then I wash my face. I also use cold cream to take eye makeup off. I use the jergens brand. My mom has the most sensitive skin ever and it's never irritated her skin or mine.

To take off Mac Studio Fix fluid, which is a high coverage foundation, I use Mac's Cleanse-Off Oil. My own jojoba/castor oil concoction also works well. While I use CeraVe for normal cleansing, the few times I wear makeup I find it is simply not strong enough.

For eye-makeup. Baby wipes. Just as good as "eye makeup remover" and tons cheaper and don't sting your eyes.

I'm also using Makeup Forever HD Foundation right now. To remove it I use my Clarisonic brush and my cleanser. The first few times I did this twice but I found that the second time around there was nothing left to remove, so now I only do it once thoroughly.

Currently, I use an airbrush machine to apply my makeup. I use Obagi Clenziderm Daily Care Foaming Cleanser. This is my favorite cleanser because it melts the makeup right off and keeps my skin clean. It also contains 2% salicylic acid to help treat any existing acne.

Just dove soap and clarisonic work amazingly for me. I currently use Lancome Photo Luminsence or something like that, and it's a light to medium coverage foundation.

1. Baby wipes - If I'm really lazy. Perfume and alcohol free of course!
2. Simple Eye Make-up Remover - I'm not that fond of Simple, but this make up remover is really good. Because it is for the eyes, it's more gentle than a general purpose product.
3. Micellar water - This is good if your skin is sensitive, it's multi-purpose and can be used as a cleanser and a toner. The best thing is you don't have to wash it off! Just soak a cotton pad in it and wipe. Try searching for things like Bioderma online.

Finished Tetralysal on 12/04/13

Quinoderm 10 once a week

Gedarel 30/150 as current treatment.

There was a time i used petrolium jelly to remove my makeup (i read it does not clog the pores). But i think i rubbed pretty harshly cuz in the morning my face felt like a sandpaper rubbed on it. Plus pimples.


Started using acne.org regimen on Dec 25 1012

I just use makeup remover wipes to remove as much of the foundation as I can. I like them because you can actually see the product coming off and you can be sure you got everything when no more makeup is coming off. Then I usually use my Cetaphil cleanser afterwards.
The regime that cleared me:
Morning:
Cetaphil Cleanser (gentle kind)
LUSH Grease Lightning Toner
Olay Moisturiser

Night:

LUSH Herbalism Cleanser (exfoliant)

LUSH Grease Lightning Toner

Olay Moisturiser

Diane35 (BCP)

Other:

Good diet

LUSH Mask of Magnaminty (2x weekly)

Used Duac for 12 months but no longer need it
