Day 36: The Battle For Moisture

So, I'm pretty much out of moisturizer.  I've been scraping out whatever I can get from the bottle and putting a ton of jojoba in it.  I'm hesitant about getting a temporary moisturizer, but maybe I'll give in.  I'm worried about not moisturizing properly with the BP and AHA and all that's attacking my skin right now.
 
Speaking of what's attacking my skin, I can tell that this new birth control is changing my acne a little bit.  It's more underneath my skin now, but I'm actually okay with that, because it's not visible, and it doesn't hurt.  If it pops out, great, it can leave, and if it doesn't, even better, because it decided not to show up anyway.  :D  It's so much better than having an evil, horrid whitehead that stretches to get out of your face, but won't leave for a week.  I can dig it.
 
It's still a little disconcerting though...I still have a long way to go in the Regimen, and I have to wait 3 months to see if this birth control helps or not as well.  It's a little trying, but oh well.  Gotta stick with it.




I was running super low on the cleanser before I even noticed I was almost out. I ordered a new set and shipping took like...2-3 days! super fast!...then again I do live in the same state as the shipment facility. Anyway, did you ever get a chance to look at the eucerine cream yet? that could be a good temporary moisturizer until you get another order of the usual one. 

You know, I didn't, but I think I'll get that today.  I don't think my moisturizer will get here for another week, I'm all the way on the other side of the coast! :(  What's the name of the product?

Thanks!  :D I used it last night, it was nice!  Although I was pretty flaky when I woke up O:  did I use too much?  It was all white on my face and took a while to absorb.  Felt super moisturizing though :3
