On my trip to Germany, my aunt told me to buy some because she swears by it. I used it for a bit on my face but then stopped (I really don't know why I stopped.. I think I just didn't want to believe something so cheap could be good). So I went back to my boots no.7 moisture quench day cream..WHICH THEY HAVE NOW DISCONTINUED AND I AM SO SO SO HEARTBROKEN OVER Just when my skin is healing..they decide to discontinue it. Just great.
Anyways, apparently the Nivea Soft in Germany and the ones sold in Us/Canada have different ingredients. So has anyone tried the US/Canada version? Good? Not good?
It doesn't have any spf which is a downside. But I'm pretty tanned and don't get burned easily so meh, lol. It also has a light fragrance but most people on makeupalley have said it doesn't bother them. Seems to be great reviews for a very low price, hmm.
If you haven't, can you recommend a good SIMPLE moisturizer? I use retin-a occasionally so I guess spf would be important. And obviously oil-free, non-comedogenic, hypo-allergenic, fragrance-free, blah blah. All that stuff lol.
Just really badly need something VERY VERY VERY gentle that moisturizes and that's it. I don't really have dry skin or very oily skin. I'm just in the middle really.
I cannot handle anymore breakouts so something very gentle would be great. Thanks !
So the moisturizer I have currently been using for a long time and is AMAZING is being discontinued It's the Boots No.7 Moisture Quench Day Cream that I put on before my makeup.
What are some other good moisturizers for acne prone skin, are oil-free, fragrance free, hypoallergenic, and all that shabang?
To put on in the morning, before makeup.
What do you guys use?
PS. I'm really nervous about trying a new moisturizers because my skin has been so used to this one for a long time. Also because my skin is healing and I don't want a terrible breakout all of a sudden.. :/
Do you ever have GOOD days and then all of a sudden a really bad day and all you want to do is cry? This keeps happening to me lately. If I notice a new breakout or something else on my skin, I get extremely depressed. It's so stupid because I know the hyperpigmentation marks are slowly fading away but I don't know how much longer I can wait, honestly. I'm moving cities in a month and never been so nervous in my life. Family I have never met are gonna be there and I'm so scared that they'll judge me for my skin. Like, I mean I'm terrified. My older sister is cleared up, my younger brother has clear skin..ahhhh.
I just feel like crying and I'm just so upset and don't know what to do anymore.
I used retin-a for about a year or more and then stopped for a couple of months because my acne was clearing up. Then all of a sudden I got random breakouts everywhere after a few months and got retin-a from my derm again. Will my skin go through that stupid stage where your skin "gets used to" retin-a and you have a really bad outbreak, again? Or do you think it should be already used to it? Because I've been using it for a week again now and it seems fine.
