This has been prescribed to me by my dermatologist.
I have mixed feelings about this product. I kinda like it but my skin doesn’t LOL.
This is Uriage Eau Thermale Hyseac Spf 50+ Fluide for oily and combination skin.
I’ve had skin issues a couple of summers ago. And I was forced to go to the dermatologist.
I haven’t had a good experience in the past when I was younger. I’ve been to a dermatologist because of acne. And I’ve achieved zero results. That is why I’ve always been skeptic about going to one for a consultation.
Fast forward to the skin issue that I had that summer, I have tried everything but the rashes weren’t going away.
I finally decided to just go and have a consultation.
The rashes went away because of the medication she gave me. But at the same time I asked some questions about products for my face being acne prone and oily skin.
And she gave this brand: Uriage
This is alien to me. Never ever heard the brand to be honest. But I gave it a try.
At first I thought it broke me out. And so I decided to just use it at the beach because I thought it isn’t something that I could use everyday if it breaks me out.
Summer went and this went inside my drawer.
Until recently.. Last year, during Covid lockdowns, I purged into my stuff and found this again.
I started to mix it together withmy current favourite: La Roche Posay Hydreane Legere
And it worked.
I didn’t break out or anything and I started to like it.
Strangely though, whenever I use it alone, it gives a different reaction to my skin.
Every mattifying cream does this to my skin. I’ve experienced this with another brand as well. From then on I prefer a simple hydrating cream for sensitive skin which isn’t heavy. Like the one from La Roche Posay.
It’s not a skincare item that I am crazy about and I don’t feel comfortable recommending it if you have sensitive and acne-prone skin.
I am finally done with it up until the last drop LoL
So I don’t think I would repurchase it again.
