    My face is a mess!

    I've never really had a problem with pimples or greasiness, but the last 3 months have been awful. I went to the dermatoligist in the begining of September (of course my face was clear for the visit) and was presribed a gel to clear everything up. I was also told to use Cetaphil Moisturizer and I have been using Purpose Face Wash for the past 10 years (which is also dermatoligist recommended). I think the moisturizer is too heavy and greasy. I am litterally wiping my face 3 times a day, it is soo gross.

    Anyone have any recommendations for moisturizers? Anything that fights acne is a plus, but not neccessary.


    TIA!

      I actually use the same moisturizer, I was givin little cleaning pads and some cream stuff for my face from my dermo, and it helped a ton. How long have you been using what your dermo suggested?

        I've been using it for little over a month. I know I haven't given it a long enough chance, but I can't take the greasiness anymore!

          Philosophy makes really great (gentle) products. You can find it online through the philosophy website, through QVC and in some big department stores (I think). I love everything they make!

              Philosophy, I'll have to check them out. I might go to Sephora tonight and see all that is out there.

              I was actually looking into proactive. Do you use the entire line or just 1 or 2 of the products?

                I use this as well. Not everyday but I like the moisturizer that it comes with. They also have the mask that you can use as a spot treatment which comes in handy!

                    Proactiv is the best!! I love the exfoliating face wash and then I use the cream at night.
