Dove sensitive skin beauty bar and Cetaphil lotion



 November 17 2015 

The picture on my profile was from last winter. I was using Marcelle's Ultra Gentle Cleansing gel, but you know what made it that clear and even? Avene's High Protection sunscreen...before they changed the formula and removed the zinc. Now it's all titanium dioxide and I don't dig it.

I've had some struggles with my late 30's skin. Due in part to food allergies and hormones.

For the record I have combination/dry skin with large open pores, Mediterranean heritage.

I've been using dove soap for a while now, my skin will not tolerate anything else. For moisturizer I use Cetaphil Daily Moisturizing lotion.

The sunscreen I use now is Skin & Lab Fre C PA++++ and sometimes Pond's UV powder over that. I have melasma and I must be diligent. 

To recap my routine as of November 2015:

AM:  Dove Sensitive bar

          Cetaphil Lotion


PM: Dove Sensitive bar 

Alternating nights: Chica Y Chico Beta Salic 2.0 OR 10 % Vit C serum 

When using the serum I will use Cetaphil moisturizing lotion.


I am going to stick to this routine for the next month and see what happens.



You might really like Le Roche Posay products as they come derm recommended and cater to even the most intolerant skin. Perhaps products like the Lipikar line. They have a soap bar and other formulations.

As well as their Anthelios sun care products like the Ultra-fluid lotion.

Thanks, you know I was thinking of that this morning when I woke up. My skin is looking dehydrated and really shitty. I have cetaphil gentle cleanser but  I can't stand SLS.

I saw La Roche's Dermocleanser, I've tried the lipikar bar, it's really alkaline. 
Anthelios is great, I used that ultra light fluid over the summer. I like my Skin & Labs, its tinted yellow :) makes your skin look brighter .

I got up this morning and I washed as usual with Dove and used the Cetaphil lotion. Cetaphil lotion is a hit or miss product with me. Some days it's ok and other I get mad hives and itchiness., like this morning. 
Anyway, I am going to try the Dermocleanser from La Roche, and maybe Toleraine lotion. I have no active acne and I need to keep my skin from drying out if I want to keep it that way. Cetaphil gentle cleanser is not the way, I need something without SLS.
