Any suggestions of exfoliators that are gentle on the face and work well with combination, acne prone and sensitive skin?

If you have acne prone/sensitive skin, I would not recommend using a physical exfoliant of any kind. A mild chemical exfoliant would be best! I like The Ordinary 5% lactic acid. It’s gentle, but effective, and should not irritate the skin.

is there any good cleansers for sensitive, dry skin that are cruelty free? preferably without fragrance or essential oils. (makes my skin really sensitive)

I have dry skin and lately any cleanser has been drying me out terribly and almost every moisturizer is just not enough I recently tried Ponds cold cream cleanser and it truly worked wonders I can absolutely see why it’s still a really good buy since 1846, it left my skin super soft, hydrated, moisturized and clean. I first removed most of my makeup with the Ulta makeup removing towel (like a MakeupEraser) then I massage the cold cream on my face avoiding my eyes, and leave it on (a bit like a mask and for it to work and grasp on any dirt, oil and pollution I have on my face) while I get in the shower and wash my body, then I take a wash cloth, soak it in warm water and gently wipe my face clean. You’ll be surprised how soft and moisturizer your face is. The Fragrance Free version I usually find it at Target for about $5 I paired it with their dry skin moisturizer and it is truly amazing! Star Duo! Never in my life I thought I would EVER use Ponds, and I love it!

@Edmarie Carrasquillo i would check it out but sadly ponds isn’t cruelty free :/. also i used to use ponds on my face when i was 15 and it left my skin very red and irritated. but thanks for the suggestion!! 😊

@Emily oh, I’m so sorry Emily They do say when people try ponds they either love it or hate it The irritation might have been from the fragrance too

has anyone used this? i’ve used it probably 2 or 3 times on my face but i was just curious if anyone had a long term review of it? it also says for acne prone skin and mine DEFINITELY is, does anyone know if it actually helps prevent it? thanks! :)

If you would want something more for your acne I would use something like this. When my skin would breakout first of all I would lay off makeup for a bit then I would use this everyday once a day and it helped my skin! but i am not a serious acne person my skin has always been a little bit smoother than most
