Nutrogena On the Spot sucks! That would probably be your problem. Idk what is with that product, but it's like glue. Once I switched to Dan's BP, my flakiness and peeling went away. It sounds like a lot of money to pay for one product, but it's defintley more cost effective and it works better! I've been on the regimen for 1 year and have gone through 3 of the 8 oz tubes.

In Topic: Organic Skincare Recommendations?

Wow thank you so much! This defitnley helped. I have oily/ combo skin, so do you think these would suite me well being that they left you a little dry? I'm leaning more towards Alba Botanica. Are there any fragrances in it, and did it irritate your skin at all? My skin can get pretty sensitive also.


I have also been interested in organic skin care lines that are affordable. I wanted to use procudts that were as gentle and natural as possible, because harsh ceansers weren't working. I have mild persistant acne and I am currently taking Accutane.

I have used Alba Botanica Pinnapple Enzyme wash. I loved the scent and I believe it semi-worked to help with my breakouts, but it was more like a treatment once the breakouts already happened--it didnt stop the breakouts from happening. It also made my skin way too dry. On the positive side, it did give my face a nice litte glow, but I have found other ways to achieve this now. My experience with this cleanser stopped me from trying any of their other products, although I know a few poeple that enjoy them!

I have also tried a bunch of porducts from Burts Bees! Mainly the Soap Bark and Chamomile Cleansing Cream and the Sensitive Skin Moisterizer. The cleansing cream smelt nice (like orange tic-tacs), removed my makeup, and moisterized my dry skin, but it did not help prevent breakouts. The moisterizer was nice and light, but it did not moisterize my skin enough (it was still dry and flaky--no matter how many layers of lotion I used) and I think it might have agrivated my skin.

Another organic product I have used is the Avalon Organic VItamin C Renewal Cleansing Milk. This product smelt wonderful, and its creamy consistency moisterized my skn and deffinitly made it glow! I wouldnt use it just for helping breakouts, but just if your skin needs a little pick me up and is looking dull, I would use it a few times a week--but not as a normal cleanser.


My current routine is as natural as possible and is workng great so far!

I use Cetaphil gentle skin cleanser, then I use Dickinsons Pore Perfecting Toner (the yellow bottle) which I apply with a 100%, organic cotton, cotton pad. Then if i have a few dry spots Ill use Cetaphils moisterizing creme. These products gently cleanse my face and keep it clean, moisterized, and fight my small breakouts!


I hope I helped!

Yes of course you can still put on makeup! Just makes sure your face is completely dry from the products before you start :)

In Topic: My Skin Looks Horrible With Make Up ....the Flakiness Is Horrible

Try using a primer/BB cream after you moisturize, before your foundation. And also use a foundation appropriate for your skin. Avoid anything that says shine free, oil free, etc. those are meant for oily people like me. Anything that says luminous, moisturizing, etc would be good. Covergirl whipped cream foundation is good for people with dry/flaky skin! Hope this helps and good luck!

In Topic: 5 Months And Still Breaking Out. Normal?

18 November 2013 - 11:55 PM

I still get some breakouts after almost a year. I didn't start to clear up till my 4th or 5th month, so I'd say its normal. Unless you were clear, and are just now gettin a lot of breakouts, then that's most likely due to your dietary changes. I'm not a professional or anything, just guessing.
