Simple rich moisturizer and cerave foaming cleanser I have been using forever and love! Both gentle and effective.

Thanks for yiur reply. I can't use the Simple moisturiser, but do use the cleansing wipes without a problem (although, it does get washed off). I've started using the cerave foaming cleanser. Seems ok,so far. I just found the LaRoche Posay Toleriane sensitive Fluide and will give it a week. I'm wanting to try the Toleriane sensitive caring wash now.

I use Neutrogena facial soap fragrance free but don't know if that too effective. Is the cerave foaming cleanser fragrance free???

Hi...yes, it's fragrance free. It's not the best for me lately, so I've switched to Bioderma Sensibio mild cleansing foaming gel and the sensibio light moisturiser. I did try the sensibio AR, but ended up with an issue on my nose that hasnt been for over a year!! So I'm nixing that for a bit, because it's got something that my pores dont like. The Paula's Choice 2.5% benzol peroxide has been really good as well. You could consider the CeraVe night moisturiser....basically, it's a crap-shoot regarding what your face likes or not.

Do you like the Paula's Choice benzol peroxide? I have been researching for days of what I can use at night to wash my face in. I came across Paula's Choice on the internet and just ordered it tonight.

I've used lots of stuff from PC.....the BP 2.5% seems OK, but it is bleaching out my pillow case...lol. It's in a nice base that I really like. I just ordered the Clear Pore Normalising Cleanser and the Clear Oil-free Moisturiser...it should be here on Monday. I must clarify I'm 64 with no oily skin. My issue is with blocking and healing of the milia and other that I pick when it gets inflamed....a cycle that can go awry fast or heal without issues.. I don't get pimples anymore, but with the natural exfoliation slowed waaaay down, any moisturiser that adds sebum creates a bad situation. Healing has lots of inflammation that lays down either more collagen or keratin or both, and if they dont get picked out, the skin heals over it with recurring issues and spreads outward . So, I do use salicylic acid and glycolic acid, but finding the balance of cleansing, inflammation, dryness, moisture and exfoliation is exhausting.

Snipzie do you experience comedones that stay under the skin and never rise up to the surface? I totally understand how you feel about the cycle of cleansing, inflammation, dryness, moisture, and exfoliation. I am dealing with this all the time and the tricky part is trying to find a good balance.

Hi serene....I rarely get whiteheads, but when I do they heal quickly after sthe gunk and the plug is removed.. I guess it's because I don't create the kind of damage that creates those thingies caused during healing. The others rise with a white tip....sometimes, rarely, they heal after they are extracted and salicylate applied.
