CeraVe PM Face Moisturizer for Nighttime Use I like this formula well-enough: it was great for the winter when my face was a but a dried-out corn husk. It’s a little too occlusive for the summer Ohio humidity – the ceramides in it suck up all the moisture in the air, and makes me feel a little greasy.
Acne Treatment One thing I discovered is that the only way I’m able to keep my acne at bay is by treating my whole face (not just spot treatment) every single day. Spot treating is locking up the barn after the horse already escaped.
(Formerly) La Roche Posay Effaclar Duo Made the switch to DDF because the cost/oz is so much better, part of which is because I think you aren’t paying for ingredients in negligible quantities. That said, if you can afford to use Effaclar every single day, it’s a great product.
Hada Labo Goku-jyun Premium Hyaluronic Solution The thing with this solution is that it’s a serum – a little goes a long way. I use this only in the winter time, and only after I use my acne treatment gel and before I moisturize. It’s the only thing that kept my face from peeling to hell when using benzoyl peroxide.
You’ll note that I don’t have an SPF integrated into my skin care. Be ye not so foolish as me! Use sunscreen every single day, separate from what’s in your makeup product! I’m just super lazy and haven’t integrated it into my skincare routine.

A lot of websites will give you a discount if you sign up for their email list. I’ve gotten great deals this way. To get around using an actual email account, sign up for a burner and never get pestered again (unless you use an actual email to confirm the order – then you’re on your own).
If you want to check what the ingredients in your skin care actually do, like I did in my spreadsheet above, go to the INCIDecoder, and nerd out.
