I had no luck with the topical vitamin a from vitamincure. I only put it on my nose which gets very oily because i was afraid of an initial breakout on the rest of my face. I tried it for about 2 months and saw absolutely no improvement in oiliness. Any suggestsions? When i applied the vitamin a it felt very greasy and never seemed to soak in. Is this normal?
I gave up after a week or so. I gave my reasoning in the "oil is ruining my life thread: "I've given up on thevitamincure.com simply because I don't like the website and lack of testimonials, lack of frequently asked questions, etc., etc. And it didn't help that it didn't reduce my oil from the get go which it suggested it would. Anyway, if I'm going to experiment, which I'm always doing, it's going to be w/ something more established. If thevitamincure.com works as well as the handful of folks say, then word should ultimately spread and the website should be able to better reflect it's success. It seems the stuff's been around since 2004. Seems like there would be much more fanfare if it worked for a lot of folks. It may be the bomb, but I'll wait for it take off before I devote months to it, in the hope that it's the bomb." (http://www.acne.org/messageboard/index.php?showtopic=97433&hl=)
Anyway, the stuff was ridiculously oily when I applied it. Virtually no apparent absorption at all. Maybe I was using too much? I figure since it's oil, it probably won't totally absorb and much of it will simply stay on the surface. I know my pillow case most likely overdosed on it cuz that's exactly where it all when when I put my head down.
Oh well, I still wish the company had a better presentation. When all else fails I might try it again someday. Good luck!
