@Louisianagirl26 A great resource for finding good products is Beautypedia. You can search their best of lists, and filter by skin type. A great gentle but effective cleanser is First Aid Beauty Pure Skin Face Cleanser . BHA is also helpful for exfoliating oily skin. I only rec Paula's Choice. It comes in 1, 2, 4 and 9%. Sephora sells the Paula's Choice Skin Perfecting 2% BHA Liquid Exfoliant and Paula's Choice Skin Perfecting BHA 9 Treatment 0.3 oz/ 9 mL . Niacinamide is also supposed to be good for controlling oil. I use Makeup Revolution, but The INKEY List Niacinamide Oil Control Serum 1 oz/ 30 mL is also good. A clay mask can be helpful at controlling oil. I love innisfree Pore Clearing Clay Mask 3.38 oz/ 100 mL . Oil blotting sheets are invaluable; I like the ones by Target. You might benefit from a lightweight moisturizer on dry areas where you need it. CeraVe PM is a good one. If you are looking for a spot treatment for acne, Clean & Clear's Persa-Gel is good. Let us know how it goes! Good luck! 🙂

@maryhenshilwood We can't change our pore size per se, but we can make them appear smaller in some circumstances. BHA is good for exfoliating in the pore. Paula's Choice is the only BHA I love. It comes in 1, 2, 4 and 9%. I believe the 2 and 9% are available on Sephora. Good luck! 🙂

@makeitup305 I don't have the best answer since I've never used it before. Basically, I think it uses peptides to make your hair softer. I've heard it works really well. The website (k18hair dotcom) has FAQs, etc. One thing I was surprised about was that you shouldn't apply conditioner before using it.

Sorry about your allergic reaction but olaplex has been around for years before covid and it was the only reason i was able to dye my black hair bleach blonde years ago, and recently it has saved my dried wind-damaged hair from hiking & sun damage. Olaplex obviously doesn't work for everyone and you have a right to sue, but don't say it's a scam. It is not a scam. And this review isn't fake. I love olaplex!

I used to love Fresh’s masks, but the cleanser never really worked for me. Actually, both of them (separately) gave me some decent-sized breakouts. I started using Farmacy’s Green gel moisturizer (don’t remember the actual name) and it helped me a lot. As for cleanser, I’ve been loving the newest on from Biossance. It’s their squalene cleanser. It’s been super gentle and non-drying. These have really helped calm my skin when I get the occasional hormonal acne breakout. They’ve really helped lessen the severity. I also use Differin gel (0.1%) from Target for acne. It’s the generic for adapalene. You’d apply it first after cleansing (like you would apply a serum), and then moisturizer after that. It may cause some dryness and peeling after first using it, but with consistent use it has kept a lot of my normal acne at bay and the initial dryness has completely gone away, too.The biggest suggestion I have is a piece of advice from my esthetician friend: before applying products (whether to your body or face), make sure your face is damp. It’ll help the product absorb better and will ultimately help the product be more effective.
