Things I Love: Doctor’s Dermatologic Formula Glycolic Wash

By Glinda

I have, throughout the years, used more types of facial cleansers than a reasonable person should.  My skin has always been oily and acne-prone and I could never seem to find the magic product that not only would make my skin oil-free, but perfectly glowing and blemish-free.  Well, I still haven’t exactly found a product that can do all that, but this one comes close.

A drugstore brand I bought for years was no longer being stocked, and so seeking a change, I searched  for a suitable replacement.  This 5% glycolic acid wash was definitely not a compromise.  It cleanses without stripping, and my skin tone looks to be a bit more even.  I don’t really use it to minimize wrinkles, although I’m reaching that stage more quickly than I’d like. Initially it seemed expensive, but you can get away with using a very small amount of product, and the bottle is quite large.  I’ve had mine for over three months and have used maybe a quarter of the bottle so far.

And you know what? It tingles.  It makes my face feel all tingly, and if I accidentally get some in my mouth, it puckers a bit.  Like a rube, I fall for the tingly sensation every time. If it FEELS like it’s working, it must be, right?

But all that aside, this is an excellent wash for someone with aging, oily skin.  Like moi, unfortunately.

    Glinda, thank you so much for this. This sounds like it was tailored for my skin. I have been using Cetaphil for years, but lately it seems my skin does not want Cetaphil anymore, so I am going to put a stop at Sephora on my “errand” list.

    Question – Is there a moisturizer you favor that works well with this product? I was using Oil of Olay, but I think that’s going the way of the Cetaphil.

    @Monica the Tiara Chick- I have always heard great things about Cetaphil, but for some reason, it didn’t work well for me.

    As for the moisturizer, I’ve got that coming up in some future posts! 🙂
