How have you all been? What’s new? I finally started my summer break, which is super exciting! Even though I’m stuck at home just like most of you (I believe) I still have more time for myself. I started to read again, and it’s really fun and amazing. I’m actually currently getting a card for the library! If you’d like to, you can tell me what’s your favorite book in the comments, and I’ll be sure to check it out 🙂 I’ve also been able to talk with my friends more, and hang out with my dog!
So apart from those things I’ve also been able to use social media more, for better and for worse. I follow a bunch of skincare pages on instagram and tik tok, and I’ve noticed that almost all of them post many good things about the “CeraVe” skincare company. I’ve been struggling with acne and dry/ oily skin for some time now, so I’ve decided to give it a try. My mum and I went to the store, and got the “Hydrating Cleanser” and the “Moisturising Lotion” by CeraVe, and I’ve been using just these two products along with sunscreen for around two weeks.
Before starting to share with you how it effected my skin, I think that it would be more helpful if you knew what my skin type is. So my skin is basically what they call “combination skin”, meaning that my “T” zone (forehead, nose and chin) is oily, while the rest of my face is dry. Here’s a sketch I found on the internet that might be helpful for a better understanding.
So the products that I bought were for normal to dry skin, as I couldn’t find for a combination skin. My first impression of the products was great! The texture was so soft and light. I did not like how the cleanser felt on my face, it felt quite oily, but the lotion was so great, and I got used to it after using it for a couple of days. The lotion dissolved quite quickly on the skin, as you can see in the pictures, which I counted as a pro.
After one week of using it, I didn’t see that much of a difference in the T zone, but my cheeks were so soft and felt clean. Usually I tend to have very red cheeks, and I could actually see that they became a bit pinkish and not so red like they usually are after using the products. After two weeks of using both of the products, I was able to see a slight change in my forehead, and whenever I got a new zit, even though it wouldn’t go away over night, it definitely became way less swollen and kinda dryed out quickly.
In conclusion, I think that the products did a very good job overall. They were meant for dry skin, so where my skin is dry, they worked perfectly fine. I think that if you’re looking to try out some new skincare products you really shoud give these a go, just make sure that the products that you pick are meant for your skin type. If you don’t know your skin type, you can simply look it up! There are also many quizzes that you can take to find out. Also, I would recommend to also continue using other products- when I tried them, I stopped using my toner, serums and more, which is maybe why it didn’t work as much as the reviews claim it would! But I don’t know, I’m not a proffessional lol. Either way, I would give the “Hydrating Cleanser” 3/5 stars, and the “Moisturising Lotion” 4/5 stars.
And I guess that that’s about it! I’ve never actually done a review before, so, I’m hoping to get better and better 🙂 Thank you so much for choosing to spend you time reading my blog, it means a lot.
