Need A Recommendation For A Cleanser

5 posts in this topic

I have Combo Skin - oily forehead, nose - Dry chin/mouth. I need a cleanser that won't dry out my skin (so not foamy) or break me out further. It needs to be a non-acne cleanser.

Thanks


It's a rocky road but like everything else in life, there is always a beginning and an end. Here's to finding my end.

God is good to me..........more than I deserve.

Consider it all joy, my brethren, when you encounter various trials, knowing that the testing of your faith produces endurance. And let endurance have its perfect result, that you may be perfect and complete, lacking in nothing.

I find Liz Earle's hot cloth cleanser to be amazing! Its sulfate-free, so it does not foam and is not specifically for acne (e.g. no salicylic acid). I have combination skin that is extremely sensitive and I can use it twice a day with no problems. It is so gentle that I can even use it to cleanse over my eyes! Before using it my skin was always dry with an oily t-zone and now it has become pretty much normal, so that I can even exfoliate without causing irritation.

Thank You. I see though that it has essential oils which are no bueneo for me.

CeraVe has two cleansers that are nice. A foaming cleanser and then a hydrating cleanser. The latter has no foaming quality at all. Kind of feels like applying conditioner to your face.


Regimen:

AM: CeraVe foaming face wash, 100mg Spirolactone

PM: CeraVe foaming face wash, witch hazel, Acne.org AHA+

Been taking Sprio since 1/2013
