Aquation Moisturizing Cream Powered By Hydro Balance
This is an essential cream in my routine and does not cause me to break out. My skin is so smooth when I use this cream. Oleic Acid (fragrance) is the only ingredient the analyzer showed to be unsafe for fungal acne. I do not see it at drugstores or Wal Mart anymore but it is available on Amazon and Ebay. There is a lotion and cleanser I have not tried yet. I took this out of my routine because the one unsafe f.a. ingredient but tried it the other day on a cluster of breakouts on my back and a spot on my upper arm- already the breakouts are finally going away after 7 weeks. I hope to find another product with similar ingredients because I think it has been discontinued.
greenland Lip Balm Papaya
All lip balms that I've tried (some labello, some burt's bees, many that I've already forgotten) dried my lips out with consistent use, i.e. I had to use the balm more & more often with less & less effect until my lips were so unhappy & dried out that I had to give up altogether. It's completely different with greenland: I can use it as often as I want, and with each use my lips become less dried out and sensitive, so that with time I was able to use any other product on my lips, for as long as I also used greenland lip balms. I mean this literally - since I started using various other products after using greenland alone for more than a year, and my lips were consistently happy, I thought I'd try some of those products alone to see what would happen. One day of burt's bees alone and I already had to switch back to greenland, since my lips were becoming dried out. Greenland during the day plus burt's bees in the morning/evening I can use for as long as I want without any ill effects. I've had multiple flavours (strawberry, papaya, passion fruit, mango, maybe others) - they all smell nice, but most of all, their effects are AMAZING <3
Ziaja Manuka Tree Face Toner
For a long time I was looking for cheap, low pH toner in spray. So this is it for me. I use it after cleansing my face, both - morning, evening. The application is fast - I usually spray with this all over my face and then I gently spread it with hands. It's nothing miraculous, but I wasn't even expecting any huge improvements with this - I just wanted something what will work with COSRX's exfoliants. I will buy ti again.
Ziaja Goat's Milk Eye Cream
I don't really have a problem with the skin around my eyes, so for me this cream was enough. But I think that for somebody who has dry skin it wouldn't be moisturizing the skin enough. The cream is really light, it soaks quickly into the skin and it's cheap.
Ziaja Goat's Milk Moisturising Day Cream
This cream is really cheap, nice to put on, but I didn't notice any special results when using it. It moisturizes the skin quite well, but that's not really my concern. I have problem with acne, so I couldn't put it on T-zone area, because I think it makes my acne worse, slightly. So, I won't buy it again. There are more interesting (even though more expensive) creams to try out.
CosRX Advanced Snail 92 All In One Cream
I LOVE this cream. It reduced the fine lines on my forehead (probably dehydration related). Anytime I've broken down and picked at my skin THIS has drastically sped up healing time. That being said, it does not work great as a stand alone moisturizer for someone with dry skin. I would recommend adding a more occlusive cream after or perhaps squalane? It's definitely worth incorporating into your routine though.
Maybelline Dream Velvet Soft-Matte Hydrating Foundation
This is best during winter, in summer got oily after 1 hour and pores accentuated. Needs a primer I have been using several different combos, I worry about covering acne scarring and this foundation helps and a dewy finish- change from a typical matte look I prefer, still needs a concealer and setting powder. If you have dry skin, normal or combination skin this might be a decent foundation, I don't usually use this daily but have been for the last 2 weeks and on and off for 3 months. No adverse reactions and product does what I need, great drugstore option, feels heavy but not bothersome, if a foundation helps me look/feel more attractive I am happy and recommend.
L.A. GIRL Pro Prep HD High Definition Smoothing Face Primer
This primer had better reviews than NYX Pore filler (fungal acne safe) and was about $3.00, no adverse reactions, helped foundation stay and smooth base, recommend setting powder after 2 hours was oily . My absolute favorite is Clarins Instant Smooth Perfecting touch- not sure if fungal acne safe and is over $35.
