Help with suggestions and advice on cleansers and moisturizers for sensitive combination skin.
Hello, I hope everyone is doing well! I'm seeking direction and suggestions on skincare products for my skin, a cleanser and a moisturizer.
I experience excessive oil with a dehydrated skin surface. I haven't had any luck finding the right products for my skin for awhile now The products that I have tried have left my skin dry, and a result a flaky/dehydrated skin surface right after cleansing. Then, after applying a moisturizer to fix this problem, my skin tends to get super oily throughout the day.
I don't suffer from acne, but my pores tend to get clogged and I seldom get one or two whiteheads. My beard grows really fast, and I also tend to get some ingrown hairs. I would like to find some products that will help me with these issues. I do want to note that I use a clarisonic. At least once a day.
I have tried cleansers in the mens line including Anthony, Clinique, Jack Black, and Lab Series. But no luck. It seems they are too harsh. That's why I decided to try cleansers from Philosophy and Murad, but again no luck. Right now, I am considering giving Origins and Boscia cleansers a try. Since Sephora suggests them for combo skin. What do you think?
I greatly appreciate any direction and suggestions on what to look for. A cleanser that will balance my skin, as well as a moisturizer that will hydrate and help my skin problems.Thank you so much for your feedback, have a good day!
If you have sensitive skin, the best advice I can give you is to stay away from Boscia! My skin reacted violently to Boscia's black line. That said, I think it's probably great for oily skin- but pretty harsh.
I concur with the Origins suggestion- and also really like Murad's daily cleanser.
For an out of the box suggestion, check out Shiseido's Pureness line. Shiseido is gentle on sensitive skin, and Pureness is targeted towards controlling oil.
