Yep yep! Fun combo to deal with! I so wanted to like the coconut oil and I've tried it multiple times to no avail.
I do use makeup, though very little at this point due to the struggle to find stuff that doesn't make my skin angry. Mostly just eye makeup, so I use some makeup remover wipes before cleansing. I've been using plain, lukewarm water to rinse my face after removing makeup and following with a honey mask for 10 minutes followed by misting some epsom salt water on (1 tsp. epsom salts to two cups water). I'm just rinsing with water in the morning and applying sunscreen. Blue Lizard's Sensitive sunscreen has been working well and I've had no problems with it. I've only needed moisturizer a couple of times, and when I do that is when I break out, so I'm still looking for a good one. I'll definitely try out the Vanicream.
Definitely going to try it out!
