Sorry you have to exchange it that stinks you should really try the MAC one I use its awesome!  It a little pricey but the bottle with last you for so long and the makeup artist will pick you the perfect shade and if you don't like it you can always return it.  I use MacthcMaster I'm a shade 2  its really light you can layer it not greasy or heavy feeling and has SPF 15 too. 


I love sweets.. I'm going for my 2nd blood work today and they said my first one my cholestrol was a bit high but I didn't fast I didn't realize so maybe thats why.. Oops.. and I'm trying your brand this month Amnesteem..

Glad to hear you are making some good progress girl.. When you're done you Tane if you are worried about the scarring if you have an ULTA makeup store near you try either Dermablend or one of the other creams in that section. Dermablend is the best though for covering scars. It can even cover Tattoos.. And it is a cream. Its not cheap but it works awesome. But you WILL need a good makeup remover, you can try something like the Estee Lauder Take It Away I told you about

In Topic: Accutane And Jittery Feeling

Yes I believe that is sort of what I am feeling it seems to be the worst about 5 to 7 hours after I take the medicine. Since I take it every morning with food I'm going to try paying more attention maybe I need to eat when I'm starting to feel this way. Because I felt that way again tonight bad but noticed I felt a million times better after dinner.  But I was very chatty.. It def gives me a feeling like being speeded up or something I was bouncing off the walls earlier.

Hi Candy girl.. I have not experienced the red marks yet a bit of jitteriness and a bit of nosebleed when I blow my nose.. May I ask you.  How tall are you and how much you weigh? (you can private msg me that if you like)  80mg is a VERY high dose to start with. That can cause an AWFUL inital breakout (IB). My dr started me on 10mg and will taper up if I have no major side effects to 50 or 60mg which is max for my weight I am 5'3 about 130lbs.  Dose is based on your weight divided by 2.2 should give you your normal dose.  For me 130/2.2= 59.09   Most Derms usually start low and taper up by 10 or 20mg per month.


Even by day 3 on only 10mg my face was horrible.. Broken out everywhere, but it a lot better now hoping it stays like this.  I wish I had an answer for the dark spots and red but I don't eusa_think.gif   I have had dry skin. I am using Aquaphor for my lips and I use the gentle Cetaphil along with gentle makeup removers because I love my makeup rolleyes.gif   I can suggest very good makeup removers that will not make you greasy the only ones I've found!  Makeup Forever Eyemakeup remover  takes off even waterproof MAC.  You need to buy that at Sephora.  And Estee Lauder Take It Away makeup remover for face its awesome, I think it can even do eye makeup too.. I love these cause they are both soothing cream but never leave a trace of oily or greasy feeling.  Hope that helps a bit..
