CeraVe Hydrating Foaming Oil Cleanser

For a month I tested the new @cerave Hydrating Foaming Oil Cleanser that is formulated to be ultra-mild, yet effective in cleansing the skin of dirt, oil and pollution with moisturising the skin. 💦

This foaming formula is suitable for delicate skin and skin prone to mild eczema. It contains 3 ceramides to help strengthen and maintain the skin barrier, and triglycerides and squalane oil to help replenish natural skin’s lipids, suitable for normal to dry skin on the face of body.

You’ve seen on my IG that I am a big fan of Cerave, and I was really excited to try their new product.

Some of my favourite points about this product:

  • the texture is gel-like and really hydrating without dry out my skin
  • one pump is enough for my whole face, neck and chest
  • it is good for double cleansing and every day use
  • the quantity for the price 26.99 $ for 473 ml

The only thing I would note is that you’ll still have to use a separate makeup remover, as this isn’t that effective as dissolving makeup and definitely won’t help you take off the waterproof mascara !

This is a nice gentle everyday cleanser, without any irritation. It is also fragrance free, a huge plus. 🤍

Aqua/Water, Glycerin, PEG-200 Hydrogenated Glyceryl Palmate, Coco-Betaine, Disodium Cocoyl Glutamate, PEG-120 Methyl Glucose Dioleate, Polysorbate 20, PEG-7 Glyceryl Cocoate, PEG-150 Pentaerythrityl Tetrastearate, PPG-5-Ceteth-20, PEG-6 Caprylic/Capric Glycerides, Sualane, Ceramide NP, Ceramide AP, Ceramide EOP, Carbomer, Triethyl Citrate, Sodium Chloride, Sodium Hydroxide, Sodium Cocoyl Glutamate, Sodium Lauroyl Lactylate, Sodium Hyaluronate, Cholesterol, Citric Acid, Capryloyl Glycine, Hydroxyacetophenone, Caprylyl Glycol, Caprylic/Capric Triglyceride, Trisodium Ethylenediamine Disuccinate, Phytosphingosine, Xanthan Gum, Benzoic Acid.

Affordable drugstore products under 20 $

CeraVe SA Smoothing Cream For Dry, Rough, Bumpy Skin 10% Urea – is an intensely moisturising formula designed to combat a variety of skin concerns, including unwanted bumps, scaliness and extreme dryness.

My top 3 affordable drugstore sunscreens

Who doesn’t love affordable drugstore products that works? I think everybody ! Today I am gonna to talk about my top 3 favourites sunscreens that which I always rebuy because they work great for my oily acne prone skin but they will definetely work on a combo skin as well.

@eauthermaleaveneromania very high protection Dry Touch Fluid SPF 50+ – is a facial sunscreen suitable for normal to combination skin that is effective against both UVA and UVB. This formula has been designed to be very water resistant and to regulate sebum production, thanks to its content in Monolaurin. The ultra-fluid texture ensures that the skin stays matte throughout the day and Avène Thermal Water soothes any irritations. Characteristics Dry touch ultra fluid emulsion; Very water resistant; Paraben-free.

This sunblock comes in a pump bottle that it makes very easy to dispense.The moment I applied this it left a little bit of white cast but after 20 minutes it tones down and I can not spot it anymore. It set quite quickly so I had to apply it fast, I didn’t notice any pilling the finish is semi-matte which I really like !

I kinda liked it under makeup, but I can’t say it’s my favourite sunscreen under makeup.It doesn’t sting my eyes at all, cuz you know how sensitive they are and I did not experienced any irritation or breakouts from using it. Doesn’t feel sticky or greasy and absorbs almost immediatelyOffers a really good oil control, my face remain matte for like 4-5 hours.

Contains 4 UV filters: Tinosorb M, S, Uvasorb HEB, Avebonzone and it doesn’t contains fragrance which I like very very much! It costc only 12 $ so I think is a fair price for 50 ml.

Ingredients:
AVENE THERMAL SPRING WATER (AVENE AQUA). C12-15 ALKYL BENZOATE. METHYLENE BIS-BENZOTRIAZOLYL TETRAMETHYLBUTYLPHENOL [NANO]. WATER (AQUA). DIISOPROPYL ADIPATE. ISODECYL NEOPENTANOATE. SILICA.

@altruistsun Altruist Dermatologist SPF50 Light Face Fluid is a broad-spectrum, dermatologist facial sunscreen created to provide superior protection, in a moisturising super-light transparent formula suitable for daily use. Enriched with Vitamin E to help prevent cellular damage from UV induced free radicals, to reduce the risk of skin cancer and premature skin ageing. Suitable for use under make-up or after shaving.

This is a hybrid sunscreen it contains both chemical and physical UV filters ( Butyl Methoxydibenzoylmethane; Ethylhexyl Salicylate; Octocrylene; Titanium Dioxide (Nano); Phenylbenzimidazole Sulfonic Acid; Tris-Biphenyl Triazine (Nano); Bis-Ethylhexyloxyphenol Methoxyphenyl Triazine; Ethylhexyl Triazone) .

It has a lightweight texture, it gets absorbed into the skin very fast, absolutely no white cast and the finish is a little bit dewy, but I like it is very natural, and it look very nice on the skin when you reapply it. I did not see any pilling and also stays very nice under the makeup.

The only thing that I do not like is that stings my eyes really really bad, so if you have sensitive eyes use another sunscreen around them. What I’ve learned is that Octocrylene filtere is the cause for the feeling of stinging. I only buy this because I know that is safe and it look very good on my skin and is also really afforrdable. This is also an unscented sunscreen, 50 ml for 10.55 $

@larocheposay Anthelios Shaka Fluid SPF 30 – is a daily facial sunscreen that offers very high protection against the harmful effects of solar radiation. It has a minimalist and hypoallergenic formula. Specifically developed for sensitive skin it should suit any and all skin types. With a unique combination of antioxidants and sunscreen filters, it offers broad and photostable protection against solar radiation. It has the ability to not only protect the skin from UVA, UVB and infrared rays but also from oxidative stress. In addition, its formula has a unique technology that makes this sunscreen ultra-resistant to water, sweat and sand. Besides all this, its texture is also ultra-light and non-greasy, gliding easily over the skin without creating a feeling of discomfort and unsightly white marks. And the best part? It’s also suitable for the eye contour area, as the minimal formula won’t sting the eyes.

La Roche Posay Shaka Fluid is like a lightweight serum to me that gets absorbed very easily into the skin , has watery texture and I could easily spread it across my skin and rub it in easily. No sticky feeling left on my skin, my skin remains quite refreshed and hydratated after I am using this sunscreen. I also like that this sunscreen is water/sweat resistent.

I do not like that it contains fragrance and is quite strong but if you do not like fragrance in products you can choose the La Roche Posay Anthelios Shaka Fluid SPF 50+ 50ml the unscented version ( I think I will chose this next time). The quantity is 50 ml and the price is a little bit higher than the other two 15 $.

Ingredients:
