Morning Essentials + Giveaway! || Cetaphil

In a previous post, I mentioned my current nighttime routine products, and now, here are my morning essentials. Throughout my teenage years, I was never one to care much for sun protection, but as I get older, I’m trying to take preventative measures to protect my skin from aging and any consequences that may arise in the future.


This is where Cetaphil comes into play, thanks to Cetaphil who kindly sent over a few products catered to my skin and its needs, I was able to put them to the test for the past month. You can find Cetaphil in many drugstores and retailers (a full list here), for super affordable prices (between $6 – 20 CAD) and a wide range, you’ll be able to find products perfect for your skin and its needs.

To match me up with products perfectly suited for my skin, I had stated that my skin gets oily and shiny/greasy throughout the day with the occasional dry spots where my acne is located (cheeks and chin). When it came to moisturizer, I was looking for something with SPF since I’m usually too lazy to apply a separate sunscreen in addition to moisturizer. I had indicated that any SPF amount was fine with me as I spend most of my days working indoors, and something that would help with my skin’s oiliness as it only gets dry throughout the Winter.


With this information, Cetaphil sent me their DermaControl Oil-Control Foam Wash and their Daily Facial Moisturizer with SPF 15 and I couldn’t be happier with the pairing.

Since I apply serums to my skin at night, I like to use a gentle cleanser in the morning to help prepare my skin for the day. This foaming cleanser is super gentle and doesn’t make my skin feel like its striping itself of all the moisture and hydration it gained through my night’s sleep. Perfect for oily, blemish-prone skin, I’ve noticed that my acne has decreased significantly.

Some more facts about this foam cleanser:

  • Zinc Gluconate absorbs excess oil
  • Non-drying, soap-free foam wash
  • Non-comedogenic, non-irritating

After cleansing my skin and slightly waking up in the morning, I protect my skin with their Daily Facial Moisturizer with SPF 15.

I love that the moisturizer packaging includes a locking mechanism cap, this makes me feel so much reassured when travelling that my moisturizer won’t be spilling out and I won’t be left with any surprises in my bag when I take out my moisturizer.

I’m pretty picky when it comes to moisturizer and sunscreen finishes and this one is a definite winner for me. Perfect for sensitive skin, it’s oil-free and lightweight and doesn’t leave my skin feeling greasy, which, is the one thing I dislike the most when it comes to moisturizers and sunscreens. This perfect two-in-one leaves my skin feeling like it can breath and maintaining its hydration, its also a great moisturizer to use under makeup as it sets up a nice canvas before application.
