#3375662 Anyone Tried Diva Stuff

Posted by tleeannes on 17 August 2013 - 04:37 PM

I wouldn't trust products you found online that have absolutely no reviews. In the case of acne, silence is a bad thing. When people find stuff that works they rave about it. That's what you need to look for. If you're looking for a good spot treatment then I'd suggest:

 

1) Buying BP 2.5% and using it as a spot treatment (sometimes i rub tea tree oil on the spot first and when it dries i rub some BP on it)

 

2) Use tea tree oil on the spot alone (I apply it with a Q-tip. If you plan on using tea tree oil as a toner I'd recommend diluting it with witch hazel or jojoba oil first)

 

3) Amazon is a great website to visit when you want reviews on skin products. They have practically everything. See if there is a spot treatment on the website you might like. Most of them are sold in stores anyway.

 

I never buy any skin or hair products without checking amazon reviews first. They help a lot. I hope this helped a lot too :)




#3375654 Treatment Or Toner?

Posted by tleeannes on 17 August 2013 - 04:28 PM

I have noticed throughout the past years I have been treating my skin for acne that not every regimen is the same. Some come with a toner (and no treatment), a treatment (and no toner), or they come with both. I have always enjoyed using the brands that come in sets of 3, even though they never worked (i.e. Murad, Proactiv, Epionce), because I felt like putting 4 different things on my skin x2 a day was a little drastic. Not to mention my skin hates everything. It is bitter! and picky! Toner is great and BP 2.5% is great too (if it works for you) But, when do you give up one for the other? Do you alternate? I have been told time and time again that toner works well to reduce pore size. If clogged pores causes acne (amongst other things) then why do we not simply just use pore minimizing cleanser, toner, and moisturizer to rid ourselves of this once and for all?

 

Let me know your thoughts. I'm really curious as to what everyone thinks. Thanks
