Skincare Products for Acne-Prone/ Sensitive Skin

Skincare Products for Acne-Prone/ Sensitive Skin

Hey everyone! I hope you are having an amazing day! Do you ever wonder which products are best suited for your skin type? It took me a while to figure out which products would and wouldn’t irritate my skin and cause it to break out. If you don’t know, I have sensitive, acne-prone skin; therefore, I have to be careful with what I put on my face. I am going to share with you some skincare products that I use that do not break out my skin.


Neutrogena Makeup Remover Cleansing Towelettes: These makeup removing wipes are the only ones that I will use from the drugstore. I have tried many others and most of them have dried out within a few days or just didn’t remove my makeup. I am picky about what I use to take my makeup off with because my skin is super sensitive and if I leave makeup on my face when I go to bed, I will usually wake up with a breakout. With these wipes, I find that they remove most of my makeup; therefore, it cuts down the time I spend cleaning my face. In my opinion, these wipes are the best ones to get if you are lazy like me and want to take your makeup off really quickly. 

Philosophy Purity Made Simple One Step Cleanser: This cleanser is my absolute favorite cleanser of all time because it takes a lot of my makeup off, cleans my face, and doesn’t dry it out. I’ve noticed that since I have been using this cleanser, my face hasn’t been oily or dry (Winter can sometimes dry out my skin in certain areas). It has been super normal, which is not usual for my skin. My skin is normally super oily with a few dry patches in certain areas; however, with this cleanser, it does not have that effect. I truly love this product because it works well to clean my skin and is suitable to all skin types.


Cetaphil Daily Facial Cleanser: This cleanser is also one of my favorites because it is gentle on the skin and suitable to all skin types. It has an amazing scent and makes my face feel clean.  I am super sensitive to smells, so whatever I use on my face has to smell decent. I don’t think that it removes all my makeup; therefore, if I use it, I will go in with a makeup remover to cleanse my face before I wash it with my Cetaphil cleanser. I would recommend this cleanser to anyone who has sensitive skin because it is super gentle and has an amazing, fresh scent.


Clarisonic Mia Skin Cleansing System: I love my Clarisonic because it does a great job at exfoliating my skin. When I use it, I notice that my makeup goes on smoothly and it gets rid of any dry patches on my skin. I really think that having a good skincare system helps with how my makeup goes on and sets into my skin. It allows my makeup to sink into my skin without sitting on top and looking so unnatural. If you are having problems with your makeup sitting on the surface of your skin, try exfoliating once or a twice a week and see if it helps.


Garnier SkinActive Micellar Cleansing Water: I use this cleansing water every night with a cotton pad because it takes the remainder of my makeup off after I cleanse my face. You would be surprised at how much makeup is left on your skin after you wash it. Once I started using this product, I realized how much makeup I actually left on my face every night. I also think that is why my skin broke out so much when I wasn’t using this product. I take my eye and face makeup off with this product and it is super gentle so I don’t have to worry about it burning my eyes. If you want to ensure that all your makeup is taken off for the day, I would definitely recommend buying this product.


Cera Ve Moisturizing Cream– I love this moisturizer because it prevents my skin from getting dry patches after I wash it and it also helps my makeup apply smoothly. It doesn’t make my face greasy at all and feels amazing on my skin. I also love that it comes with a ton of product; therefore, I don’t have to buy it as often. This moisturizer is my absolute favorite and I would recommend it to anyone!

I hope you enjoyed this post and found it helpful, especially for those of you with sensitive skin like mine. If I can be of any assistance, please message me any time. I would love to hear from you! 🙂
