  1. Hey there, I'm a fifteen year old girl with normal to combination skin. My biggest problem isn't my acne; it's my acne scars. I've had breakouts since I was ten years old, and my acne used to be moderate. My acne is now pretty mild, but after five years of collecting scars (I never listened to my mother when she told me not to pop my breakouts) my skin looks terrible. I've been using Aloe Vera gel, which I've heard helps to heal and fade acne scars, and I've noticed a small difference. However,
  2. I know you're asking about moisturizer, but try using a different cleanser. I'm not sure of its exact name, but Clean and Clear has a cleanser that keeps working after you've washed your face to absorb oil and keep your skin from looking and feeling oily. That might be a good option for you. Also, try Olay Active Hydrating Beauty Fluid; a little goes a long way for this product! It's fantastic and I swear by it. Have you ever considered using blotting papers? That will help absorb the oils on
  3. Try using the green cover sticks to counteract the redness, then apply your regular concealer/foundation. Just make sure to apply the green concealer as light as possible because it might be a little harder to clean off than your regular concealer. Also, there's a cleanser from Clean and Clear that leaves a translucent, barely noticeable powder-like substance on the skin to absorb oil throughout the day. I'm unsure of the name, but the packaging is gray and purple if that helps. Blotting paper
  4. Try wearing a Night Cream during the day if your skin is that dry. Also, on the more dry spots on your face, try putting EOS lip balm on it. Don't know how, but it works wonders when used with moisturizer. I've done this many times, especially during the winter when my normal/combination skin tends to be more dry. Hope this helps!
  5. Olay Active Hydrating Beauty Fluid is AMAZING. I have normal/combination skin and a little of this product goes a long way! In fact, all the Olay moisturizers in the white bottles are great! They have options with SPF 15, they're a good price (Olay is a drugstore brand), and it lasts a long time. My mom and I use the same bottle of the product and it lasts us a long time. Hope this helps!
  6. I love the Olay Active Hydrating Beauty Fluid. It's so amazing and has changed my skin. My acne used to be much worse and my face used to be super oily. Now I have much more mild acne flare-ups and my skin is is normal/combination. A little of this product goes a long way!
  7. Sorry this is so late. Keep on using the Clean and Clear products. Initial breakouts are a good sign that the product IS working! Also, get off of Differin, it's such a waste of money. I was on it for a year and it did nothing. Try EpiDuo! If you use it everyday, you get results in a month. Trust me! It cleared up my skin over the summer. Then school started and I fell off the routine and my acne became worse. (Hormones were also a factor.) Personally, I would talk to your dermatologist/doctor
  8. DON'T USE BOTH AT THE SAME TIME! This will just cause more acne because both products together are very harsh. Try to figure out which one works for you. Through research and personal experience I've learned that salicylic acid is great for emergency fixes and spot treatments, while benzoyl peroxide is better for long term prevention/control. Try using benzoyl peroxide products on your skin and find natural sources of salicylic acid, like strawberries and other fruits. That might also work.
  9. From personal experience, I've learned that really good products tend to break people out at first. In order to see if a product actually works on your skin, you need to use the product everyday for approximately three weeks to a month. Also, perhaps you're using too much of the lotion? You should only need a very small amount for your entire face and neck. Or use the Cetaphil moisturizer at night and use a lighter one during the day? Just make sure that your skin is damp before using a moisturi
  10. Hey there! Concerning Cetaphil, I was very intrigued by the product myself. I was in Target one day and saw it, planned on buying it, but my mom stopped me and looked at the Up and Up brand cleanser right next to it. It's EXACTLY THE SAME, but $3 cheaper. No, it doesn't have a pump, but the bottle is very easy to control, and you only need a dime-sized amount for your entire face. I noticed results after the first use; my pores looked smaller and cleaner. I love how your face isn't tight after y
