Yeah, I clumped my weekend together again.  I said I wouldn't do that, but clearly I can't live up to that promise.
 
Well, my skin's been clearing pretty nicely.  Most of the bumps are going away, or are smaller whiteheads.  And that's great!  I'm happy about that.
 
The main issue now is that I STILL don't have my acne.org moisturizer, and the Eucerin product feels like it's burning my face!  My skin's pretty red and swollen.  Posted Image  I'm almost positive it's the lanolin alcohol, which is also clogging my pores a bit (nothing major).  I can't change to another moisturizer though, because I don't want to mess with other products.  I miss using jojoba, too.  The Eucerin creme doesn't mix with it well.
 
So, my skin is extremely dry, flaky, and red.  Awesome.  But, I feel like I can't really judge how it's doing until I get the moisturizer again.  Hopefully soon!  I'm almost half-way through this Regimen and I'd like to keep the progress going!
 
Pictures to be posted tomorrow.
 
Also, last night I dreamt that I squeezed a whitehead on my chin, and TONS of sebum came out.  SO MUCH SEBUM.  It was so satisfying, and gross, and amazing.  However, still resisting the urge to pop...for the most part.




oh noooo D:! I never had any burning from the eucerin cream. I only use a small dab since it's so heavy and thick but gahh. your moisturizer seems to be taking it's sweet time arriving. maybe I missed reading it somewhere but why don't you just use jojoba oil as your moisturizer or does that not cut it?

Ah I know, I'm so sad!  It's a great product and it works really well, but my skin is just so freaking sensitive right now.  And yeah, the 6-10 day shipping for the moisturizer was the cheapest...oh well.  Also that's a great suggestion, I'm going to use a lot more of the jojoba while I wait along with the Eucerin.  They just don't mix well together, but if I use jojoba first it might be okay.  smile.png
