Pretty good :)

I haven't been using the moisturizer for long though (like a day), so I can't really judge if it's gonna break me out yet.

The cleanser is good for keeping oily skin relatively under control. and does soothe my breakouts & doesn't cause more.

I love the sulfur ointment as a spot treatment xD

Really kills cysts. I put a thin layer on overnight :)

So many moisturisers break me out, even the oil free ones.

Yea same, this is yet another moisturizer I'm trying lol. I've never found one with SPF that I like. But this one seems good, checked the ingredients on Acne Detective and only 2 are slightly Comedogenic & neither are over 3 on the scale. So fingers crossed I've finally found a decent SPF one lol ._.

I like Manuka honey for treating the red marks/sore areas when a spot is no longer active - it's great for healing :)

Have you had good results with the Ambi mark minimizer? I am looking for something to fade my marks

Manuka honey really is excellent, I should try it on inactive spots!

I used the Ambi mark minimizer for about a year and the results were minimal at best...I know it works for many but I guess my hyperpigmentation was just too stubborn. I'm continuing to use it for pimples, but I'm currently trying the ACV method for my marks which seems to be working very well so far smile.png

Hey how do u use the manuka honey for acne??? Do u just apply and leave it on over night?

Cleanser: Cetaphil Gentle skin cleanser

Moisturiser: Cetaphil moisturising lotion

Spot treatment: Differin Gel

Scar/Redmark Treatment: Apple Cider Vinegar

Psycological Treatment: Vodka

Hows it going using the Cetaphil range, my skin hated it, and the moisturiser just breaks me out every time I put it on my face.

Cetaphil is great for me, it doesnt make me breakout. However, it doesnt help improve acne either. The mouisturiser isnt the best but i'm not too bothered about it. I think if you use a product long enough, ur skin will adapt to it such that it won't break out anymore.

In the morning, I mix it with some jojoba oil and rub it on my dry face. In the evening I omit the oil and apply just the honey as a mask for about half hour and then rinse off :) I've tried putting it on overnight but it's just way too sticky and my face sticks to the pillow haha

I used to use manuka honey a lot. (+15 Steens Raw Manuka Honey) It made my skin soooooooo much softer. It helps to heal popped pimples if you make a mess of it or pop one that's not quite ready. It helps with the redness, pain and inflammation. It also didn't break me out. I used it as a 30 min face mask as well smile.png

Nope, it's very gentle! But if you buy the NPA registered one it's also highly antibacterial, which has helped prevent/reduce my breakouts if anything :)

Yeah using honey in conjunction with ACV has really helped my complexion and the overall texture of my skin, it's no miracle but I do recommend giving it a shot if you're interested

instead of finding the ROOT CAUSE of your acne, you put all this crap on your skin..... and no wonder it doesnt help. cuz if you have acne your body tells you he doesnt like something you put inside, and he gets it out, through the skin. and all you do is try to stop from your body to get rid of something he doesnt like with some chemicals and other crap......

you need to cure acne from the INSIDE, to cure the actual cause of pimple formation. and not just to try and get rid of them once they develop.

look especially on the food part.
