You can buy it at Ulta I believe, or it’s available on Amazon. If you find that it isn’t quite hydrating enough, you can layer Vaseline or Aquaphor over it 🙂

I like it – I layer Dr. Lin Skincare Daily Hydrating Gel underneath it so the combination of the two is pretty hydrating + moisturizing. I’m able to do AM + PM with it (I just add Vaseline for my PM). They also have another version of the LRP moisturizer that comes with sunscreen so I plan on working that into my AM. I do however need to give it more time before I can make a final judgement.

I really liked this one, they used to sell it at Ulta but don’t anymore, the website says they sell it at Walmart if you want to pick it up and try it.

i am in the process of testing Dr. Lin Skincare Daily Hydrating Gel

so far it has been pretty decent….my skin is super sensitive and hasn’t freaked out yet. Been 5 days of full on facial …

I use sunflower seed oil at night – i am really loving this oil. It feels so luxurious and really nourishing as well as being dirt cheap!

I’m having trouble finding a light moisturizer too since i’m new to skincare and AB but what i’ve used in the past that has worked well which I’m probably going to order again till I get some AB samples is Dr. Lin’s Gel Moisturizer I like the other stuff that Dr. Lin has too and they also sell it at Ulta.

From reading around tho i’m probably going to stick with Skin Food Peach Sake Serum which I just ordered today as a moisturizer cause I am combo skin and my t zone gets crazy oily so I’m hoping the serum will be enough.

Hi there!

I just wanted to let you know that Automod has removed your comment because it contains an Amazon referral link, which we don’t allow in the sub.

Could you please edit the URL for the Dr Lin hydrating gel so that everything from (and including) “tag=” is removed? Here’s the tag-free URL for an easy copy & paste:


Also, it looks like the Avene Emulsion may have an affiliate code in there as well. Could you edit the link to:


If you’ve done that, please reply to this message so I can approve your comment 😀

So I’ve been doing my skincare regimen for awhile with issues and decided to add a sunscreen, but I’ve been having major issues with it burning my face. My current routine is this:


Benzaclin (5%BP/1%clindamycin)

Dr. Lin Skincare Daily Hydrating Gel (https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00FTG6YLY)

All the regular sunscreens I tried were causing a burning (which I read may be due to avobenzone). So I ordered EltaMD UV Clear Facial Sunscreen (https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B002MSN3QQ)

It again caused a terrible burning sensation and my face turned bright red where I applied it. Does anyone have ideas for what may be causing this, or alternative sunscreens?

Dr. Lin Daily Hydrating Gel is a popular one. It’s not 100% aloe, but I’ve used it and it looks just like aloe vera gel (no fragrance, totally clear, gel texture), which makes me believe it’s mostly aloe. Aloe vera alone isn’t very hydrating, so this moisturizer has hyaluronic acid and glycerin to help add some moisture to your skin. It’s pretty lightweight.

Holika Holika 99% Aloe Soothing Gel is another popular one.

If you don’t like those, I will say that aloe vera is really really easy to grow at home 🙂

I don’t know where you’re located, but they sell it online at quite a few places.





What I usually do is go to either Walgreens or Target and order it in stores and get it shipped there so as to avoid the shipping charge.

The thing you have to remember is that how someone else’s skin reacts to a product has little to no bearing on how your skin will react to it.

There’s no reason that dimethicone or glycerin should break you out unless you happen to also be sensitive to them. It would be impossible to avoid every ingredient that other people are sensitive to.

That being said, I also don’t like Cerave in the tub. (It’s not meant to be a facial moisturizer and a lot of people have issues with it so frankly, I don’t understand why that is always this sub’s first recommendation to people.) If you want a more hydrating gel moisturizer, I’d recommend Dr. Lin’s, the Cosrx Aloe Moisture Cream, or the Benton Aloe Propolis Gel.

The Simple one isn’t bad, but you can get a more hydrating gel moisturizer with a similar feel.

Washing your face in the morning vs splashing is also a personal choice. There’s not a particular benefit to it unless you find that not washing in the morning contributes to acne for you.

That’s awful. I used to buy the Sebamed gel for seven euros.

I second the Simple gel moisturizer. I have also seen people recommend Dr. Lin’s Daily Hydrating Gel, although it does seem to have some citrus extracts.

I don’t know if you know /r/AsianBeauty, or if you’d be willing to go down that road, but they also seem to have some really nice and simple aloe vera products. They also have a TON of light moisturizers you might like, the All In One ampoules, for example. They’re giant and people seem to love them, although they might contain fragrance, I think. I’ve often seen people write that asian beauty products are cheaper/better value.
