So week 3. Pictures will go in my gallery some point today or tomorrow when I get a chance.
I got my jojoba oil in the post. PERFECT. does the job. flakiness issue gone. To be fair it was mildly resolving itself, but the jojoba oil got rid of it completely after 2 days of use.
The best bit about the jojoba oil- I now only have to moisturise once during the day- no more multiple trips to the bathroom to stick my face back on...gross.
I'm using 3 "drops" (place bottle on palm, tip upside-down, then the right way up- as it doesn't have a dropper top) in the morning and about 5 "drops" in the evening.
I was really REALLY picking at my flakes before- which was causing a lot of irritation. I couldn't stop myself, so it is really good that this is gone now.
My redness has gone down a lot, my spots that I got in week two are healing up, and there don't appear to be too many new ones.
Generally I am really really pleased this week. So much to think that when my 2.5% panoxyl arrives i'm not sure I want to use it as the 5% cream is working so nicely!
I found a moisturiser called "fade out" original cream, after week 4 I will start using this as it has AHA in it so can't yet..- Hopefully I won't go too red, and hopefully it will get fid of some of my scars/ freckles, and stop all the flakiness.
This morning I was a bit brain dead and started putting my moisturiser on before my panoxyl...so had to wash it off and start again...oops.
Seeing as I have had success with my products here are some links:

As my flakiness issues have stopped I am not bothered by the dryness of the cleanser, (or if it was even made worse by that at all I don't know)
However I will probably change my cleanser sooon anyway as I don't think I can afford to spend that much all the time as I am nearly half way through the bottle all ready!
But then again, it works so...
I'm anxious now, as I really want this to work but don't want to get my hopes up... and I just have this feeling it's going to stop working, but I really don't want it to!
