Accutane Survival Kit

Posted by MissAustralia, 14 February 2012 · 2,884 views

I spent a looong time trying to find information on survival kits. In fact that's the main reason I think I am going to keep a blog is so others can know what products work in alleviating the symptoms. Money really isn't a concern I am basing my findings solely on how well they work. Over the past month I have compiled a list in my Evernote and just cut and pasted it. Note there are prices & stores to purchase beside a lot of them. US means US dollar and AU is Australian dollar.

My stats are blonde, medium complexion with combination skin. No real body acne (a few pimples occasionally now). I am 45kg (100pounds), 5"3 tall. I have cysts that I call "grown up" acne that I get from behind my ears to my nose (mostly near my ears though).


  • biotin supplementation (?)
  • baby shampoo (I usually only wash my hair twice a week anyway)
  • Nioxin shampoo (last resort)
  • Cetaphil Gentle Skin Cleanser ($18AU Priceline)
  • Clinique Moisture Surge Intense Skin Fortifying Hydrator ($36US/$76AU). Another girl said after a month she switched to this & life was good.

* I am going to mix up all my lip treatments daily as I read on a few blogs that your body becomes use to it.
