Is Acnemoist cream by Curatio a good moisturiser for acne prone skin? Will Acnemoist moisturiser cause more breakouts? Can Acnemoist cream be used for sensitive skin? Can you post a review of Acnemoist?
Acnemoist is actually a sunscreen, with jojoba oil added in. It also has Pentavitin which is a highly effective moisturizing agent that can retain skin’s moisture for a long time. That makes Acnemoist a great moisturizer. Acnemoist is suitable for dry skin, acne prone skin and sensitive skin.
Acnemoist is non-comedogenic, it does not normally cause breakouts, but if you have APST type 3 skin, test on the side of the face for a whole day before using it all over.
If you need a sunscreen, better ones are out there. If you need a moisturizer for dry, scaly skin, Acnemoist can be used during daytime. Acnemoist can be hard to blend into the skin and can leave a shine on the face. So even daytime use is only suitable for very dry skin.
It doesn’t make sense to use Acnemoist as a night cream because of the additional sunscreen ingredients – why use more ingredients than necessary?
Bottomline: Use Acne Moist during the day if you are currently on strong acne medication such as Sotret or Aldectone or extremely drying acne ointments such as benzoyl peroxide. If dryness of skin is not a major issue, skip Acnemoist.
Trivia: Once bound to the skin surface, Pentavitin cannot be washed off easily. Therefore the removal of Pentavitin occurs only by the natural process of skin shedding. Talk about a “sticky” moisturizer!
Acne Moist is actually not non-comedogenic. It has been generally thought of as non-comedogenic, but their new packaging reveals all the ingredients. It is one of the most highly dangerously comedogenic products. Funny they called it Acne Moist. 🙄
