Don't base what you buy from what they say on the bottle, first, I reccomend having a look at what other people have said about using products in the reviews section found here!
Also, if you want to be precise, have a look at what ingredients to aviod in products found on store shelvs here!

From what you wrote it sounds like your not using a moisturizer, weather you are or arn't, look for products advertised for acne prone skin, a lot of products are for people looking to improve the appearence of their skin, which don't take into account the needs of people with acne prone skin!
Looking for 'for acne prone skin', 'for sensetive skin' stuff like that.
Also, make sure you avioid products with salicylic acid, for some reason when I was looking in boots here in England, a lot of products had it in, and they didn't even say they contained in on the front of the tube! Even though it's an active ingredient. It doesn't go to well with the BP...

Best of luck!

New Regimen!

Morning: 2 pumps Dan's cleanser in the shower, and "Eucerin Dermo Purifyer Hydrating Care" to moisturize, works to get me through the day without dry skin, but doesn't show, it's like there's nothing on my face, it's matt and doesn't shine.

///

Night: 2/3 pumps Dan's cleaner in the shower, using the cleanser to shave with a 2 blade generic razor, end segment finger's worth of Dan's BP, 2 pumps Dan's moisturizer with 6 drops generic, organic jojoba oil.

Sometimes just Dan's AHA+, or the usual application of Dan's BP with AHA+ on top if I'm feeling hardcore.

///

1 generic multivitamin, 30mg Zinc if the multivitamin doesn't contain it, 1/2 odorless garlic capsules, 2/3 EyeQ capsules (omega 3, 6, evening primrose oil,)

Have been on lots of different prescriptions, most successful was oxytetracycline.

 

New regimen!

Dove summer glow morning

AHA+ (acne.org) night!

Awaiting 20% salicylic acid gel in post for chin and nose.

Acne isn't returning after almost 2 years on the regimen

Looking for treatments for oily skin however, I have that really bad

CeraVe pm moisturizer is the BEST moisturizer I have ever used on my sensitive acne prone skin. It doesn't clog pores, not heavy, doesn't cause acne, continues to moisturizer throughout the night or day. You don't have to just use it at night, it would be best to use the CeraVe am moisturizer since it has SPF in it.

The Cetaphil lotion works great for me! No breakouts from that one. I only use it at night though because it can get your face to look shiny. I don't mind so much since I'm just going to sleep. Also, you can get it in a pretty big bottles so it comes out cheap.


Morning Routine:
- CLEANSER: Cetaphil Gentle Skin Cleanser/Acne.org Cleanser
- BENZOYL PEROXIDE : 1 pump of The Acne.org 2.5%
- MOISTURIZER: CeraVe Moisturizing Lotion + Neutrogena Moisture with SPF 15 + 5-6 drops of Acne.org Jojoba Oil
 
Evening Routine:
- CLEANSER: Cetaphil Gentle Skin Cleanser/Acne.org Cleanser
- BENZOYL PEROXIDE : 1 pump of The Acne.org 2.5%
- MOISTURIZER: Cetaphil Moilturizing Cream + Acne.org AHA + 5-6 drops of Acne.org Jojoba Oil
 
Extras:
- Concealer: MAC Studio Finish Concealer in C25 (for redness)
- Pressed Powder: MAC Select Sheer in NC20 (for mattefying)
- Foundation: Revlon Colorstay for Oily/Combination Skin in Buff (for even skin tone)
- Scrub: St. Ives Apricot Scrub Blemish and Blackhead Control (twice a week in the AM)
- Medication: Diane 35
                     Meftormin 500mg (for PCOS)
- Supplements: Vitamin D3 (1000UI/day) --- Started 5/16/2013
                         Zinc (50mg/day) --- Started 5/16/2013
 
And this is all done as gently as possible. smile.png
