Day 118

Posted by starapples, 28 February 2012 · 362 views

HOLY COW. I am now recovering (thankfully!) from a pretty intense reaction. On Valentine's Day, I wore my Laura Mercier Mineral Foundation and my face just exploded! Now, I've worn it several times before, and while I've experienced VERY MINOR itching, I never had a reaction as bad as that day. I wore it only out for dinner, didn't...

Day 101

Posted by starapples, 11 February 2012 · 246 views

So I've now tried the CeraVe AM SPF 30 for 4 days now and I broke out in small, flesh colored under the skin bumps on my left cheek. Also, a couple of them on my eye contour area on that side of my face where it probably migrated to. It's a shame, but it seems it's a little too rich for my skin. Too bad as I've definitely been able to tell...

Day 98

Hello! It is now day 98, and I just had my 6th Isolaz treatment today. It went well as usual, but I was especially pleased when my derm remarked, "You're skin's really improved!" Posted Image So I thought this would be a good time to show some before and...

Day 90

Hi everyone! Wow... can't believe it has been approximately 3 months since I started this log! Woo hoo :) I noticed that I've had quite a fair number of views, so I'm happy this has been helping others out. Clearing acne is so discouraging, and while different things work for different people, I love using acne.org as a resource to see...

Day 72

Hiya! I'm so stupid... I blogged this passed Wednesday when I had my Isolaz treatment, then I accidentally closed the window. DOH! >.< So here it goes again... :P

So I had my 5th Isolaz treatment 2 days ago. It went pretty much the same as usual, and as usual, left me with really soft, clean skin that flattened out any active break outs....

Happy New Year all!

So I really wanted to write about my new Clarisonic Mia. I know I've only had it for a couple of days, but it seriously is AMAZING!!!!! I was ready to be disappointed, because it really is just a face brush, but it cleans so so sooooo well! I am so shocked. I don't know how those vibrations do it,...

Hi all! I hope everyone is having a happy holiday season Posted Image

Since my skin was doing much better after my last Isolaz treatment, I decided to hold off on it and go in again in 4 weeks. My next Isolaz appointment is on January 11th.

Although my skin is doing...

skin care
Hi all! I wanted to write about other skin care things I do periodically that have been helping my skin. While most days I just wash, moisturize, then pop on Differin (only at night), some days I do add extra steps if my skin is looking a bit lackluster. These are the things that have been helping me non-medicine-wise, so I thought I'd share. :)

differin, isolaz
My last Isolaz treatment was last Thursday, December 1st. It went pretty much the same as all the other times. It was my 3rd treatment.

I am actually starting to see a significant improvement in my skin. I do have 6 small whiteheads/pustules at the moment, but they are small. I noticed that I stopped getting really big inflammatory acne which makes such a...

isolaz, differin
I'm into my 3rd week of acne treatments now and I'm definitely still purging. I have 9 little whiteheads, a couple of them inflamed. Although, I'm happy to say that I have no new cysts and the ones I have had are still shrinking. While these little pesky whiteheads are annoying, they aren't bad at all. They will probably clear up in a day or 2 thanks to...
