Cleanser and Moisturize
r for Rosacea prone sensitive skin
Which would be the best cleanser and moisturizer for rosacea prone skin - Origins mega mushroom or First Aid Beauty? I am 39 and needing an extra moisture boost. I think I need to move to a cream cleanser possibly. I am also starting to see some dark patches on my skin and darkness under the eyes?
For what you are looking for and your skin type and concern, I think that First Aid Beauty line will be a better fit. It's formulated for people will dry skin and rosacea prone skin. Sephora has several sets that has everything that you need to get started on the line! The cleanser is really creamy and the moisturizer is rich and very moisturizing.
First Aid Ultra Repair Smooth Operator Kit
This set contains:
- 2 oz Ultra Repair Cream
- 6 oz Ultra Repair Cream
- 0.5 oz Ultra Repair Lip Therapy
- 2 oz Ultra Repair Instant Oatmeal Mask
Aside from the rosacea, is your skin sensitized at all or does it feel normal and you just experience the redness/flushing from the rosacea?
Though the FAB and Origins lines are great, I think you can decipher between the two better by determining exact conditions or further issues your skin faces.
If you lean toward more botanical grade ingredients be it for personal or sensitivity reasons, opt for the Origins Mega Mushroom line, as it also lends a hand to anti-aging (check out their serum).
If you're main priority is moisture and combating the redness, go with FAB as they're formulas are packed with glycerin, aloe, and allatonin, which helps to soothe skin and hydrate.
Both lines have creamy, lotion like cleansers, but it appears the Origins one walks a better line for soothing skin and combating the signs of aging.
Are the dark patches you see solely located around your eyes or are they on other portions of your face? What eye cream are you currently using?
