AHA is not a required element

That looks like it might be a good one. It is lightly fragranced, though, so some people's skin may not like that.

I don't know if there's really an "answer" for everyone now that Eucerin is discontinued. I think people will just have to find a moisturizing plan that works for them, specifically, and it'll probably end up being different for everyone.

Kupo,

is this the one ^, the Dove Deep Moisture?

I've had good luck with this moisturizer in the past. I tried to find another tube at my local pharmacy but they only had the Dove Sensitive skin stuff. I got that and tried it, and i'd have to advise AGAINST this product. I've never had something goop up soo bad, even the On The Spot treament didn't gooop up as much. Sensitive Dove no good.

I was thinking I could, when my Eucerin runs out (Heaven forbid), mix a tiny bit of this in with my Cetaphil. Well, that's what I'm doing with Eucerin right now -- mixing it with Cetaphil.

In any case, I'll probably be using Dan's moisturizer when it comes out. :cool:


May as well be Heaven,

this Hell smells the same.

Just started the regimen last night! Keep your fingers crossed.

The BP on my face made it feel pretty tight until after about 10 minutes when I put Cetaphil Lotion on. Then it felt very nice....and my skin wasn't a grease pit when I woke up this morning! Yay!

Has anyone here tried clean & clears active clear soothing moisturiser? Its from Johnson & Johnson. Its oil-free but it tends to make me break out more I think. Does anyone here who has tried it had good results? It feels great on the skin, nice and soft so I dont know if im being paranoid that its making me break out...Whats ur views?

Christy-lee :)

If it is made by clean and clear, then it most likely has salicylic acid in it. Most if not all of their moisturizers seem to have it in them. Using SA while on the regimen is a no/no, but if you've been on it for a while, you could probably experiment and see if it works for you. I have a moisturizer from clean and clear, and it doesn't really moisturize well, if at all. It does feel nice and cold and soothing when I put in on though...

On the other hand, I went and bought 2 bottles of Eucerin Skin Renewal a few weeks ago from Amazon. I hadn't ever used it until then, and I HATE it so far. I'm going to keep using it to see if anything good happens, but if things stay the way they have been, I'll probably be giving it away here in a month or 2. Stay tuned for that...

I think that Neutrogena Healthy Skin face lotion (spf 15) is a great moisturizer. After about a month of using the BP gel, I found that I really needed the AHA to keep the flakes away. Yes, it stings, but it's a small price to pay to get rid of the excessive dryness the BP caused. My results have been great. Clear skin AND no flakes?! Unbelievable! :clap:

Regimen: morning and night

Neutrogena exta gentle face wash

If everyone is so concerned about the strong scent of the Neutrogena Healthy Skin lotion, well how about trying the Neotrogena Healthy Skin for Sensitive Skin version??? This doesnt contain any fragrance. (although I dont think it contains SP15 though). Anyone tried this??????

P.S If you find that Jojoba oil causes you to break out in any shape or form, then stop using it immediatly, or face major breakouts.

I was wondering if anyone tried this eucerin dry skin relief face cream, and is it any good

cause I used to use the eucerin skin renewal lotion throughout those 4 months, but it left my face shiny

then I tried the Olay complete plus for two whole days... it left my skin very dry, I could hardly smile

now I'm on my first day of using the Neutrogena Healthy skin face lotion spf15, it stings a little and my face is a little dry and a little red, but at least the shine is gone right?


My regimen... CSR cleanser

2.5% BP Gel

eucerin dry skin relief face cream

my experience with other moisturizers: p.s. there in order from best to worst.

1...eucerin dry skin relief face cream... it's pretty good when using a small amount.. so it's all good.

2...Eucerin skin renewal was good but left face shiny

3...Cetaphil lotion... leaves my face shiny & flaky

...Olay complete plus (2 days).. dryes out face a lot

...Neutrogena with AHA.. makes face red, itchy and dry

my current status as of 7.12.06.. acne free, I've been on the regimen for about 5-6 months now.

P.S. I'm a girl, I use the following make up:

revlon skin highlights instant skin brightener with spf 15 & maxfactor foundation, under the eyes and nose...

yeah man ive used the eucerin dry skin relief face cream, it's pretty good. for some reason though it worked excellent at first and then after a month it doesnt seem to moisturize nearly as well as it used to, maybe thats just me though.

i bought some today at duane reade (which might be specific to the ny area) but ive seen it in walgreens, so im imagining that you could most likely find in at walgreens/cvs/rite aid, ect that you frequent.

*if anyone else is near a duane reade they are having a 15% off sale on all neutrogena facial care products this week which is why i actually decided to buy it today

Well if your willing to import from the UK Eucerin dry skin relief face cream with 5% urea if great and contain AHA, I don't think theres any plans to discontinue it any time soon either. Its available at www.boots.com I think its avilable in Canada too so maybe it would be cheaper to import from there :)

I bought that stuff. Besides being super expensive (like $20 for a tiny bottle), it kind of flaked/"balled up" with the BP, made all this white crap residue on my face and didn't moisturize all that well.
