what are some drug store lotions that are anti-acne but also moisturizing? all the lotions that i've used break me out...

Asked by

Try Clean & Clear Dual Action Moisturizer! It has acne medication in it.

Cetaphil’s moisturizer is usually a trusty one, many dermatologists recommend it for a drugstore moisturizer including mine. 

The Simple line sold at drugstores is also great for sensitive skin which it seems like you might have. 

The ones breaking you out could also be too thick for your skin. Sometimes thick cream moisturizers can clog pores if you have oily skin. Moisturizers with added perfume can also cause break outs.

Good luck :)

What are some drugstore/high-end foundations that give a natural finish? Not too heavy, a little lightweight. I have oily skin. Thank you!!! I love your blog :)

Try ones like

  • Loreal True Match or Loreal True Match Lumi which is slightly more dewy/luminous
  • Urban Decay Naked
  • Garnier BB Cream for oily/combination skin
  • Revlon Nearly Naked
  • Estee Lauder Double Wear Light (long wearing but more light weight than original Double Wear)
  • Makeup Forever Face & Body foundation

For a natural finish remember with powder less is more! You don’t want to look too matte and powdery because naturally the skin isnt super matte :)

Hi! What is a lightening/whitening mask you recommend? I have some acne scars that I would like to get rid of! Thank you for your help! :)

My current favorite is the Korres Wild Rose + Vitamin C Advanced Brightening Sleeping Facial!

It’s basically just a night time moisturizer but my acne scars faded literally within days when used every night. It took about 2 weeks for a really noticeable difference but I was really, really impressed. 

I also really like Mario Badescu’s Whitening Mask, $24 at Nordstrom and Ulta!

You can also make your own with honey and lemon juice! The acidity in the lemon juice will gently exfoliate and brighten the skin. Honey is purifying and anti inflammatory which will help clear pores and treat acne :)
