Doing Drugstore: Vanicream Lite Lotion

Doing Drugstore: Vanicream Lite Lotion

When I'm having a breakout, my skin gets so sensitive that it reacts badly to everything, even products I've been using for years. And each little irritation snowballs, until it feels like my face flares up every time I dot on concealer or use eye cream. That's when I know it's time for Vanicream Lite Lotion ($8). As a moisturizer, there's absolutely nothing fancy about this stuff, but it's free of just about any irritant you can think of: fragrance, parabens, lanolin, dyes, etc. It's also, as the name suggests, very light, and it absorbs quickly. It won't even your skin tone, help with anti-aging, or tighten your pores, but it will keep your skin hydrated without further breaking it out, which is a godsend when your complexion's been sensitized and is going downhill fast. If I weren't so obsessed with trying new stuff and experimenting with formulas, I'd use this every day. The brand also makes the most gentle sunscreen ever, so it gets the thumbs-up from me.

I totally bought some of this yesterday at Walgreen's after reading about it here! Used it last night and this morning - so far, so good! I have Renova prescription that makes my skin dry and sensitive, so I anticipate that this will be really helpful to use in conjunction with it!
