#3478787 Is Clarisonic Worth The Money?

Posted by SunnySarah on 23 April 2015 - 05:58 PM

I have had a completely different experience with the clarisonic, which was ultimately what cleared my skin.

Two and a half years ago I had moderate acne (whiteheads, blackheads, red spots) on my cheeks, and t-zone that didn't seem to be clearing up no matter which products I tried (and I tried a lot).  In the Winter of 2012 I bought a clarisonic and after 3 months, my broken out skin was more controlled. The texture of my skin was much smoother and very soft, and the reddish pigmentation that my skin has suffered primarily on my cheeks was starting to even out more.

Fast forward to today. My skin is clear with no acne on my cheeks, occasional blemish on my t-zone, and the overall tone and texture of my skin is great.

The first formula looks like it has a few more ingredients: Hamamelis Virginiana Bark/Leaf extract, PEG-60 Hydrogenated Castor Oil and a few others. Typically, the less chemicals the better, but you should try the "new" formula out and see how it works for you. 

#3400554 Would Anyone Recommend I Use Panoxil?

Posted by SunnySarah on 12 December 2013 - 05:22 PM

Ok so, my mom told me to try this and I don't know if it will work well, or not... Can someone give me a some suggestions as to whether or not to use it?

 Hi GodGirlzSmile! Panoxyl has benzoyl peroxide in it, so that can definitely help with acne. How severe is your acne? (very mild, mild, moderate, ect) and Is your skin sensitive? (does it itch or become dry after using certain cleansers or makeup) If your skin is sensitive, I'd suggest not using the Panoxyl.

#3392614 Best Way To Fix Hyperpigmentation ?

Posted by SunnySarah on 05 November 2013 - 05:09 AM

Hi Aisha1995!

    I've used Clinique's even better dark spot corrector for 4 months now and my skin looks amazing. I have fair skin, so my hyperpigmentation was pink in color and I had it mostly on my cheeks. It took about a month for me to notice minimal results, but now, 4 months later, my hyperpigmentation is all gone. For a 1 ounce bottle of this product, it cost $50. Although it is expensive for the amount in the bottle, that bottle lasted me 3.5 months, and I used it once a day. 


   If you do buy this product, make sure you stay out of the sun as much as possible and wear sunscreen. The sun darkens hyperpigmentation, so if you apply this product and then go in the sun, you will not see any results. 

#3389823 Not Taking Off Make Up At Sleepovers?

Posted by SunnySarah on 21 October 2013 - 04:20 AM

Oh no I'm not on the acne.org  regimen, I'm on a prescription. smile.png And my bad instead of weeks I meant days. I just 

started my prescription plan last week and I'm scared I ruined it. sad.png

I put on makeup at about noon and didn't wash it off around 7 P.M the next day.

VitalMoon, sorry I misread your post. No matter what products you're using, one day of skipping it will not mess the entire result up. Is your skin breaking out right now? Any acne that your makeup would have caused would be showing the day after or even a few days. Keep following your regimen and you'll be fine. (:

#3379491 Hyper Pigmentation What Products Can I Used To Help

Posted by SunnySarah on 01 September 2013 - 01:36 PM

Hey guys I'm 17 year old male currently at college here in the UK and I've had pretty bad acne since I was 13 but now recently my acne has really come under controls and for the most part it has cleared up! I've been using a 5% BP and it's really helped now when I feel my face it's so smooth no spots anymore I may have the odd one or two crop up but I'm sure because of puberty that's pretty normal. My dilemma is that I suffered most of school with acne and now that it's finally for the most part gone I'm left with these terrible red marks all over my face. They're now scars as they feel really smooth they are just red makes on the surface of my skin and even though my acne has gone I still feel it's still there because of these marks!!
I'm currently using Garnier skin naturals dark spot daily illuminating moisturiser which contains 5% pure vitamin C. So far I've been using it for 7 weeks daily and it's lightened my marks up they are much better than before however they are still bad!
Please can anyone suggest any over the counter products that can help with my marks or any cream available with in a reasonable budget! Please guys i need your help 5 years I've had this and now that it's finally healing I'm left with something just as worse...please guys your help and experience will be much appreciated!! sad.png

Hi Burhan21! I use a product called Clinique Dark Spot corrector and that has really helped clear up my hyperpigmentation. I started using the serum about 7 weeks ago, and now my skin is very even in tone. For a 30 ml bottle it costs about $50. Something that I recommend doing with any dark spot correcting serum is to stay out of the sun, or wear a hat and sunscreen. Hyperpigmentation can become darker if it is exposed to the sun, so by staying out of the sun, you will likely get better results from whichever serum you use. (:

#3374511 Has Anyone Tried Aczone?

Posted by SunnySarah on 13 August 2013 - 06:03 PM

Thanks for the reply, MaskedOne. I tried it for one night but I didn't like the feel of it, so I stopped using it. My dermatologist also gave me a 10% sulfur wash which I like and I will continue to use. Sulfur works so well for my skin, but I was hoping aczone would also, so that I would have an acne gel to use instead of just a wash. Oh well, whatever does the job.

#3372590 How Many People Here Approach People They See With Acne?

Posted by SunnySarah on 07 August 2013 - 08:40 AM

I think it depends on the person, some people will get defensive right away and others might not care. I think it's worth a shot, since they could get something positive out of the situation. At the same time though, some people have tried everything and a random person who walks up to them telling them what they did to clear their skin may just make them feel irritated because they've been through it all.

#3371604 Overall Facial Redness And Shininess

Posted by SunnySarah on 03 August 2013 - 05:10 PM

After I cleared my skin, it was still slightly pink and sensitive from overuse of benzoyl peroxide. I use Clinique's redness relief cream cleanser and it really has made my skin even and not pink!
