I've reached the 6th month mark of using a combination of Epiduo and Eryacne (topical antibiotic) and my skin is perfectly clear. When I stopped following the regimen and switched to Epiduo I did start to break out a little but nothing too major. The minor breakouts continued for a good 3-4 months but its now all settled down and my skin is acne free.
In this photo (taken at work under florescent lighting) I don't have any makeup on apart from mascara, blush and chap-stick on my lips (I'm addicted to the stuff!). As you can see, when compared to my original (horrendous) photos, all the pigmentation marks on my face have finally faded, and by making sure I wear SPF every day along with a big hat I haven't suffered from sunburn. In fact I'm as white as a ghost!!
