Cruelty Free Accutane Skin Care – Dry & Sensitive Skin Recommendations

As a lot of you may know, Iโ€™ve been on an Accutane regimen for a little while now (I just found out Iโ€™m about to start my *hopefully* final month!). Accutane is infamous for the extreme skin dryness that everyone seems to experience while on the medication. To give an example, while Iโ€™m writing this, Iโ€™m on 7 day hair!!! ๐Ÿ˜ณ Yup. Itโ€™s been an entire week without washing the not-even-remotely-greasy mop on my head which, I must say, is a positive side effect in my eyes. ๐Ÿ˜‰ With that though, my face has certainly gone from combo / oily to definitely on the dry side. Given that, I have managed to avoid much of the flaky, itchy, tight or other such variations of actual discomfort from the drying effects of the Accutane…with the exception of my nose, which, to be fair, is usually a bit flaky. Since Iโ€™ve been using the same products pretty consistently, I feel like I can finally share my cruelty free โ€œsecretsโ€ for managing super dry and sensitive skin that is also safe for using while taking Accutane.

Tatcha Camellia Cleansing Oil vs. Derma E Nourishing Rose Cleansing Oil – Is It a Dupe?

Iโ€™ve been a long fan of Cleansing Oils for washing my face. They are hydrating without being too much (even when my skin was oilier). Theyโ€™re gentle yet effective, and they even remove makeup without much trouble. They really can be an all-in-one product. Plus thereโ€™s just something about the process of using a good cleansing oil that I really enjoy. I have tried a number throughout the years โ€“ from higher end to more budget friendly โ€“ and Iโ€™ve recently stumbled upon two very similar oilsโ€ฆbut with dramatically different price tags! For the pricier option we have the Tatcha One Step Camellia Cleansing Oil and on the more affordable end, we have the Derma E Nourishing Rose Cleansing Oil. So, letโ€™s go through the similarities and differences and see โ€“ do we have a budget-friendly dupe?!?
