That really sux justtfx! Sorry you're stopping the Spiro. What dosage were you on? I started off at 50mgs for 6 months then bumped it to 100mgs which ive been on for 4 months now, im still breaking out with white heads that turn into cysts!! These break outs are driving me crazy!! I heard every time you up the dosage you get another break out grrrrrrr I cant take it anymore and want to just stop the spiro all together but I know I have to hang in there and that I will be all worth it. My doctor makes me take a blood test every 6 months so hopefully my potassium will stay on track thru it all. Let me know how everything goes being off the Spiro :)

I've been using Dermablend for years and its never caused me any break outs and I agree that the coverage is awesome!!!! I definitely love this foundation out of any others that I've tried and I've tried many :)

Its so weird because I was soooo clear on 50mg  but it took me 6 full months before it cleared me,  I was clear for 4 months then all of a sudden I started getting cysts again so I was bumped to 75mg, then after 2 weeks of being on that my derm bumped me to 100mgs, im beyond frustrated with all this and all right around the holidays grrrrrr lol,........... Hopefully we will all be clear for 2015 !!!!
