Recommendations For Non-Greasy Moisturizer That Absorbs Well?

26 posts in this topic

If you're willing to splurge a bit... Shesiedo Oil-Free Mattifying Moisturizer works wonders for me. It's about $36 for 4 oz, but I apply 2 pumps/use 2x/day, and after 5 weeks I'm only through half the bottle. The texture is more like a serum that glides over my skin, and dries within a minute. It's marketed as non-comedeogenic and I believe this to be true from personal experience. I have very sensitive skin, so any allergens tend to aggravate my skin. This moisturizer has never caused me ANY problems. It is oil-free, so if you have any dry skin I wouldn't recommend this for you. You can actually feel the powder particles if you rub your fingers together, but thankfully it just dries out my combination/oily skin.

For the days that my skin needs an extra boost of moisture, mainly because of my topical medications, I use Clinique Dramatically Different Serum. Only as a last resort, because honestly I don't trust that brand of cosmetic facial care. Just my two cents :D


AM Regimen:

Cleanse face with La Roche Posay Effaclar

Apply Aczone

Moisturize with Sheseido Oil-Free Mattifying Moisturizer

PM Regimen:

Cleanse face with La Roche Posay Effaclar

Apply Aczone

Moisturize with Sheseido Oil-Free Mattifying Moisturizer

Spot Treat with Clearisil Adult Acne Tinted Spot Treatment (always)

I now do not follow a vitamin regimen and have expanded my eating to include almost all food groups (excluding lactose/dairy). Since I made this change my face has CLEARED UP!

Minimalism people, trust me it works. Develop a skin care regimen, stick to it, and you will see results. All the rest (diet, exercise, supplements) didn't work for me. Less is more.

Status: 98% Clear... Plus a nice bunch of superficial scarring -.-
