Hi monica23,

I am quite interested in these products and I haven't seen them before. What are the ingredients in the oil? Is there alcohol in the toner?Can't find the info on their website.

How is your progress?

In Topic: Is Aha + Bp Not For Me? (Redness, Irritation)

Some tingling after applying the AHA is expected but blistering and extreme redness should not happen.  Were you using the AHA for dryness and flakiness?  Maybe just apply more moisturizer because it does seem that the AHA is too strong for you.  Just my opinion.

Do you have any of Dan's AHA (glycolic acid) ?  If you mix that with your moisturizer it does a good job of getting rid of the flakes.


I am quite interested in your post as my daughter wants to come off Ortho try cylcen after being on it for a year but is nervous to do so incase her face goes crazy.


So good luck to you!

If your face has cleared up then you can just use the bp once a day and it should be fine.  I think that it may be better to use the bp at night and use your other moisturizer in the day. 

Don't over do it with masks (once a week is ok) and make sure the mask is not too harsh and is ok for your skin or it could cause irritation and breakouts. 

Just remember to be gentle with your skin and stick to a routine and products that work for you and it will all be good.

Congrats on clearing up your skin!

In Topic: Salicylic Acid Contact Time?

10 June 2014 - 04:56 PM

I agree that washes with salicylic are not in contact with your skin long enough to have any effect. 

Toners or gels or creams with salicylic acid that stay on your skin are effective. 

If you look at www.paulaschoice.com under that subject there is some useful information.

Good luck.
