NEW PIC! first in a long time! over 1.5 years on the

hi all!  it's been a really long time (over a year and a half) since i started the regimen.  i think i started it back in like, september of 2007.  my face has gotten much better ever since.  here's what my current regimen looks like:

am:

+wash with Zum Bar Goat Milk Soap (in oatmeal lavender) -- NO SODIUM TALLOWATE!
+2.5 BP gel
+DKR AHA+

pm:

+wash with Zum Bar again
+2.5 BP gel
+DKR salicylic acid

it works wonders.  i used to use the purpose bar (which lasted a REALLY LONG TIME, honestly.  i still have my first bar from over a year ago.  at $4 a bar, it's totally worth it).  i've become a big fan of bar soap during this whole ordeal; i never realized how A. inexpensive they are, and B. how much gentler they are on the skin.  i used to wash with cetaphil and i'm still shocked that there's sodium laurel/laureth sulfates in there.

so, here's an updated pic of the RIGHT side of my face -- the side that's usually the most awful.  it's not so bad now!  all of the cone-ish pimples are long gone, though i still get one or two around period time.  i think i have more tiny little blackheads on my chin than before, but after dealing with huge cysts, i'm TOTALLY COOL WITH BLACKHEADS.  

the brown/red spots have faded considerably after using AHA for so long.  <3

i'm so excited with my improvement that i don't know what else to say.  yay!

    hello halina, happiness for your progress; but I have a doubt, the soap that you use, has coconut oil and according to me clog the pores.
    do you have noticed that??

    bye.

    greetings from mexico

    thanks! ha, it took me a year to reply. so sorry. :D

    i stopped using that zum bar after awhile in favor of the bar soap from carley's. and now, i've stopped using carley's in favor of dr. bronner's peppermint castile soap.

    i've heard both good and bad things about coconut oil, really, so i'm not sure what to believe. i don't remember reading about coconut oil being in it, but...i could be totally wrong.

    the only oil i'll ever use on my face nowadays is jojoba.
