I dont want to bore you all with my life story but basically I cleared my acne last year using Panoxyl 2.5% BP and after it got discontinued ive since tried everything else possible and its taken me until now to just suck it up and order the acne.org BP. I'm kinda pissed off with myself that I didnt just save myself nearly a year of pointless suffering but that times gone now and i'm on the right track again now.
African black soap (a few regimen users on here use it and it seems to work well with the regimen) I love it because it removes most of my flakey skin - usually an entire layer of dead skin comes off my face when I use this. There's only 4 ingredients so its free from any irritants or chemicals. I have cetaphil gentle skin cleanser if my skin gets too dry but ill let you know if I have to use it.
Cetaphil Gentle skin cleanser - any kind of foaming face wash for me is drying on its own, this is perfect especially for the regimen. If I didnt start using this im confident id still be battling with dry skin.
Acne.org BP - Just got this today (been using a 5% until now which was way too irritating)
Cetaphil Lotion - Again, this works for a lot of regimen users on here and I dont have any complaints with it.
I'll be doing this twice a day - my skin is possible a world record holder for the oiliest skin ever (no exaggeration) so I want to keep my skin nice and BP'd so the oil doesnt get a chance to breed any nasty bacteria.
I use Vichy Dermablend foundation as a concealer. (a guy wearing makeup omg burn the witch!!!1!1) I used this when I got clear last time so I dont think it causes any problems.
Once i'm consistently clear I plan to introduce AHA because I have a lot of purple marks and some light scarring - i'll order the Acne.org version because that and the BP work out cheaper than any UK alternatives even with the postage costs (we dont have as many options here in the UK because the laws are stricter on ingredients).
So much for me not boring you with my life story - whatever, I love me a good life story.
