Hi i am wondering what cleanser to go with. I am currently using neostrat glycoloc foaming wash. I want another cleanser that is going to deep clean and remove my makeup. I have acneic skin and am seeing a dermatologist. I havev a few ideas for cleansers which one is the best to try first. Neostata antibacterial cleanser or exuviance cleansing gel? Thanks, Peggy
I am interested in buying Afirm I, but I also need a cleanser. I currently use MD Forte II, but am running very low,,,what cleaners type would you recommend to be used while also using the Afirm...I use avon products for moisturing, but probably will change once I am empty.
I am 48 years old, but I get whiteheads on my forehead just above my nose. I usually use pevonia oily skin cleanser to wash my face. should I try something different, or use the products differently?
Hello. I was hoping you could make a recommendation for me. I'm trying to find a gentle pH balanced daily cleanser to use. I have very sensitive skin apparently. I say this because I have tried 100 cleansers. Neutrogena, La-Roche Posay, Avene, Credentials, Eucerin, Nivea, Neocueticals, Exuviance, Gly Derm, Cetaphil, Biomedic, NuCelle, and probably a few more I cant think of right now. Every one of them had either broken me out or what normally happens, dried me out. Some dry me bad some not so bad. I'm getting tired of buying and tossing products, So I figured its about time I ask. I was hoping you could recommend a few different ones just in case. I prefer ones that are not more than $25. I dont feel these companies should charge $50-60 for a cleanser or any product for that matter. Also, I prefer ones that are ph balanced. Ive been reading a lot about high ph cleansers and how they can ruin your skin barrier. Hopefully you can help, as Im having a hard time helping myself. Thank you very very much for your answer ahead of time.
My skin is usually normal, but over the summer it tends to be combination. I think I produce enough oil to not need of moisturizer. I tend to break out at the most twice a month on my T-zone. I have an acne product with benzoyl peroxide that I use every night from my doctor (spot treatment). I was wondering if there was a specific cleanser I should use? And do you use a cleanser in the morning or at night?
Hi, Could you recommend a really good cleanser for someone who cannot tolerate the following: sulfates, glycolic acid, lactic acid, stearic acid, AHA, fragrance, and parabens?! Help?!?!?! Thanks, Bev
Hi, I have oily skin that is very sensitive, along with rosacea. I can not seem to find a cleanser that leaves my face feeling clean. I always seem to have makeup in the creases of my nose after cleansing. I do not use a skin toner at this time, can you recommend a product for me?
Hi, I am 18 years old. I am currently on prescription medication for acne. I will be starting accutane soon. I am currently using a purpose bar of soap to clean my face. It is making my face very dry and itchy and uncomfortable. Would you recommend that I also use a moisturizer and cleanser, and what cleanser should I be using. I would like something that won't make my face so dry all the time. Thank you
Hi There, Just wondering, is it true that your skin is meant to break out more at the beginning of using a new cleansing routine, as it means its getting rid of all the "yuckies" underneath the skin? (or is it really because the cleanser is no good and making me break out?) I am using a gentle exfoliating cleanser with salicylic acid, a toner containing salicylic acid, and an oil free moisturiser also containing salicylic acid.
I used Dermalogica antibac cleanser a few years ago. It did nothing for my skin. I have been using Proactive for about three years now, but it seems like my skin grows immune to it after awhile. My skin is pretty oily and breaks out terribly in the chin and jaw area due to hormones. I also have small white bumps (that don't ever come to a head) on my forehead. Someone recommended the Dermalogica Specail Cleansing Gel, but I am also interested in the Dermalogica Ultracalming Cleanser. Do you have a recommendation?
I was looking at Cosmedix purity clean and benefit clean and was wondering which would be for me? I have relatively sensitive skin, i get those little red bumps on my laugh lines, forehead and under my eyes when irritated. My skin gets progressively oilier throughout the day. I get mild acne on the forehead, which would be best for me?
I am 30 years old and have oily skin. My skin breaks out on occasion, but my main concern is that my pores are large. I would love to tighten my pores and have skin with a more even and matte look. What products would you recommend for an overall skin regime?
see i have pimples on my forehead and on my chin. I use only foaming cream cleanser in morning only.I don't know what is my skin type plz help me with this .
I've used PCA products successfully for a year now. I started with Blemish Control bar, pigment bar and Phaze 1. Love them all but now I don't have acne and I recently went to the dermatologist who told me I had dry skin although since I get oily in the t-zone I thought I was oily/combination. She started me on Renova and Lustra and although I can still get oily I am dry in the cheeks. Renova and Lustra are working great but I need a new cleanser one not for acne. I love PCA products and want something that foams. The Phaze 1 still works great but was also looking at the Dry Skin Relief Bar. It seems to stress eczema. I don't have that just drier skin. Would it still be a good choice?
