Lisa that sucks, but Chipotle sounds yummy! If it wasn't raining cats and dogs here I might head over to chipotle but I don't want to leave the house or I might be taken to Oz with this weather.

Question! What are you guys cleansing your face with?

 

I had to switch from Clinique (which I loved) to Oil of Olay because it was the only one I could find in a hurry with sacylic acid.

 

What do you use?

I used Orgins years ago but it just didn't work for me....My skin is usper oily and it just didn't work.

 

 

I have also tried Aveeno and that was worse. sad.gif

good ol' soap and water - whatever i have on hand. right now it's whatever the hotel provides, but i think we typically use Dove soap at home. i'm so bad - i never wash my face, other than in the shower and all i use is the same bar of soap i use for my body.

I was using CeraVe before I got pregnant and loved it (still have the face lotion) but I ran out and got something else that I don't love (can't even remember what it is). I also have neutrogena in the shower but I've heard great things about Cetaphil and will try this next. I've never had great skin but my 1st trimester I was like a grease pit! Hair and face..my forehead was continually full of bumps! 2nd trimester has been much better. The oil has gone away and I just have the random blemishes that I had before.

 

I found this online:

 

Use gentle soapless cleansers, such as Cetaphil Cleanser, twice daily and resist the urge to scrub or use astringents frequently. These will merely irritate your sensitive skin. Use non-comedogenic facial moisturizers, such as Neutrogena Facial Moisture. If your inflammatory acne persists, your dermatologist can prescribe topical medications that may be safely used during pregnancy.

 

I'm going to try Aveeno Positively Radiant 30 spf Daily moisturizer during the summer. I already have skin discoloration and the sun only makes it worse.. especially while you're pregnant.

I'm still using ProActive. Not sure if there is something in there that is bad, but it has always worked great for me, so I would rather not change.

I use to use Clinique until it seemed like I always had a breakout of some kind on my face and it sucked!

I need to see if Cetaphil has sacylic acid in it! Thanks!

 

I think it's spelled salicylic acid....I always spell it wrong! I should probably Google just to make sure!

I know that has sacylic acid in it, I would not be using that if I were you.

    • we ended up using Facebook messenger when we were in Mexico - the hotel had free wifi and at least 1 person from each family/couple had FB on their phone already - it was pretty easy to communicate among guests "hey, we're heading to the beach bbq for lunch." or "everyone is hanging at the small pool today".  a plus was that some people tried to get a hold of me via FB on the day of the wedding and I was totally not checking my phone - they were asking if the wedding was outside given the rain forecast, thankful my mom, MOH and a few other friends were on the group and could respond for me :)

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
