I'm freaked out by MyChelle's Skin Clearing Serum!!!
After the first three days of using it, I was thrilled. My skin was noticeably smoother and more even in tone. All the inflammation had cleared up, and all my pimples had dried out. Redness from old pimples had also started to fade. My face looked great!
Then, over the first week, I noticed a fair number of small, white bumps. Between the third day and the seventh day, some of these white bumps inflamed and filled with pus. That was horrifying, but they dried out and cleared up quickly. I also noticed, much as the OP describes, that some of my large blackheads were pushing themselves out. I watched two of them crust then disappear. Others still seem to be pushing themselves out (it's taking awhile for most of them).
But, after the first week, seemingly all of a sudden, my face broke out terribly. I have a cyst, puss-filled pimples, whiteheads, and many more white bumps, as well as redness that hasn't yet resolved into pimples. I look dreadful now. I don't even want to go outside.
Then, the worse happened!: At 1 and 1/2 week in, I woke up with enlarged pores over my lower forehead, nose, cheeks and chin. These pores have deep, sunken blackheads inside. These blackheads have probably been there forever, but they weren't noticeable before. I don't even remember seeing the blackheads on my lower forehead and cheeks before. Now, my face is covered with noticeable blackheads.
Is this a normal part of the "it gets worse before it gets better?". I am noticing that a few of the blackheads on my nose and chin seem to be pushing outward, like maybe they too will crust and disappear. But I don't think I can handle my whole face covered in blackheads! Now, my face is full of zits and blackheads! Help!!! Please tell me there's an end to this! That it's just part of the process!
