Oil Cleansing Method (OCM)
By KittyLeonidas on 10/24/2014

I'm writing this as a warning. Please don't do the OCM, I was so close to clearing my hormonal acne and it's now SO MUCH worse, like many of the other reviewers...

I've been suffering from hormonal acne for 3-4 years now and had been trying EVERYTHING. I'd managed to get it to go down a lot in the last year but still had about 3-5 big red bumps on my skin at any given time, on my cheeks, forehead, or jaw, not to mention ALL the scarring. I really wanted to get it completely cleared up and felt I was so close, and I've always liked more natural remedies in anything so after reading so many rave blog posts and articles etc. about OCM I thought it would be great and would help me finally get rid of the acne!! WORST. MISTAKE.

I have combination normal/oily skin and used a combination of castor oil, grapeseed oil, vitamin e oil and jojoba. I tweaked it around at first and changed the proportions to what I thought would better suit my skin, according to all the proportion recommendations. I would steam my face, massage the oil in, steam again, and wipe the oil off, occasionally steaming/massaging oil 2-3 times. I did this mornings and evenings or as I felt was needed.

For about a month my skin was nice and glowy, super soft and supple. I didn't notice my hormonal acne going away but the overall texture of my skin was lovely, so I kept it up. Then, almost like overnight, like over a week maybe, my skin completely exploded. I got teeny little bumps ALL OVER my face like I've never had before...cheeks, jaw, around the mouth, forehead, EVERYWHERE. They're not blackheads, they're closed little bumps, you can't even really pop them but they just make the overall texture of my skin look AWFUL. I've been struggling with this now for about 6 months...never any change, the same awful bumpy texture IN ADDITION to the occasional whitehead or hormonal acne bump that pops up. It's horrible. From far away you can't tell so much bc the bumps are so tiny but up close my skin just looks like gravel. Putting makeup on makes it look worse bc the bumps are exaggerated. If I could go back in time and swat that oil out of my hands I would...I went from being SO CLOSE to being clear, to completely, 100% ruining my skin. Worst thing I have ever done. Still trying to fix it...please please don't even try this, apparently it works for some but it's not worth the risk!!

Noxzema The Original Deep Cleansing Cream
By hahahahahahahhahano on 10/24/2014

Great product for oily skin! I use this daily, but I must say, do NOT skip a day of using it because the consequences are not worth the bliss of your laziness... It clears away acne very quickly, and refreshes your skin, the eucalyptus smells wonderful too. It feels refreshing and cool.

I recommend a blackhead scrub on the side and a moisturizer if you have blackheads or if this dries your skin out. But I absolutely love this product! Use it daily :)

Sudocrem Antiseptic Healing Cream
By Lucy hod1999 on 10/24/2014

Oh my goodness! I had a huge amount of trouble with my minor acne. I had never ever had spots like this, my skin was always clear with the odd pimple here and there, for me to get about 10 spots at a time-only on my forehead-was definitely out of the ordinary! I reduced the amount of products i was putting on my face, and only washed my face with warm water, and applied sudocreme on the area and left it on overnight for it to sink in. In the morning, i found my spots were completely different! They were almost gone, i would say it would take 2 applications (2 nights) overnight to get rid of the spot completely! I would swear by sudocreme, best spot rememdy i own!! Also, i found my skin was quite dry around my nose, and aqueous cream helped with tha! I love sudocreme!!!

Fish Oil
By neuroscientist1990 on 10/23/2014

It has seemed to have cleared my face in just 12 days after using this nature-given substance. I've suffered (notice the -ed in suffered) from acne for 12 and a half years! I take it orally and apply it topically. It also HEALED (fixed the problem) my swollen left knee with fluids about 4 days after it began to develop. I recommend it.

On a side note, I apply in in circular motions on my face before I go to sleep. I also apply it in the mornings when I wake up as long as I'm not leaving my place for at least 2 hours. I let the hot steam from the shower head rinse the oil off of my face so I don't have to rub any man-made chemicals on my face.

Morgan Fleming latest review: Erythromycin Oral Antibiotic

“Didn't work for me before accutane and didn't work for me after accutane. The only thing this does for me is give me stomach cramps and makes me nauseous.”

Dan latest review: Fusion Proglide Power Razor

“This is the same razor as the Gillette Fusion Proglide Manual Razor, except this has a battery in it and vibrates when you push the button. Regardless of this "technology" if you can call it that, this razor, like all other 3, 4, or 5 blade razors I have tried before, is far more irritating and does not give as close of a shave as the simple 2 blade Gillette Trac II, which is still by far the least irritating razor I have tried (with the 2 blade Gillette Sensor Excel a close second). The FlexBall really doesn't do anything to help "hug the skin." Save your money and get a much better shave with less irritation with the Trac II.”

gaercoal@yahoo.com latest review: Epsom Salt

“I have had acne since I was 10 years old in 5th grade. I neglected my skin throughout my school years because my acne condition was mild to moderate. When I graduated and went on to college, my acne flared it big fat ugly head up like there was no tomorrow. I realized that I had to do something. I tried everything that promised to "treat" acne. I've tried doctor's prescriptions, salicylic acid products, benzoyl peroxide products, department store products, drugstore products and each time I end up with burning, unbearable skin. Drying up your skin is never the answer! You need to nourish it and protect it and promote it's health. It was like trying to lose weight by starvation. Then one day, as I am soaking in a hot Epsom Salt bath after overworking my muscles, I decided to apply some to my face also to relax my whole being. I realized as I was washing and scrubbing the Epsom salt against my skin, it was not rough like regular salt, it melted and smoothed my skin. It had a slippery texture that just dissipate instead of agitating my skin. When I got out, I noticed that my skin felt tighter, firmer. There was slight irritation due to the excessive amount of Epsom salt on my skin earlier, but my skin DID NOT DRY out. I've ALWAYS had a little bit of dry flaky patch of skin around my smile lines, and it gets worse in winter time. After this occurrence, I decided to mix Epsom Salt into my face wash. Laugh as you might but I use Bath and Body Works Body Wash as my face wash because I had to use it once on vacation after I'd forgotten to pack face wash and it worked wonderfully to remove dirt and dead skin without drying out my face. After a week of just washing my face twice a day with the Epsom salt mix, my skin cleared up. The small white heads and black heads that emerged during the first few days disappeared and I was left with clear, firm, tight skin, never DRY or oily skin. So my advice to you is to go to Wal-Mart and pick yourself up a bag of 6lbs of Epsom Salt for $5! Add it into whatever regimen you are comfortable with and see your skin magically balance itself out. What have you to lose? $5 bucks, and if it doesn't work for you, then you can mix it into your bath or into a household cleaner. Epsom Salt is not to be confused as a sodium as the name might sound but rather 100% Magnesium Sulfate. Magnesium Sulfate is a combination of Magnesium, Sulfur, and Oxygen. I like to think of Epsom Salt as a purger and balancer. It purges your skin of impurities externally and purges you internally when consumed. It draws out all the waste and impurities from you. It soothes and relaxes your muscles with topical use. It does not strip your skin as other cleansers and it is dirt cheap.”

josuhhfeen latest review: Bio-Oil

“It did seem to help my acne scars, even my skin tone, and make my skin glow...BUT it broke me out all over my forehead. For me it helped with scars, but also caused pimples that eventually did scar. It contains a highly comedogenic ingredient (isopropyl myristate) and is known to be very likely to clog pores.”

ttomp13 latest review: Repairing Lotion

“This stuff works, and I have the before and after pictures to prove it. I want you guys to know that Equate works just like Proactiv's 3-step system. It sells for about $12.00 at Walmart, probably depending on where you live. The only reason why I don't give this system a full 5/5 star rating is because it doesn't come with a moisturizer. Remember folks, we're using Benzoyl Peroxide at 2.5% here, and although this is a less irritating concentration of B.P., and it is the most effective, we still need to be moisturizing. I like to moisturize with: * Simple Moisturizer * 1 Drop of Jojoba Oil You're going to want to moisturize after using the 3rd step (repairing lotion) of Equate. If Equate is giving you side effects, dry skin, redness, flakiness, etc., then moisturizing is going to make all of the difference in the world. To people who have had problems, I want you to know that I feel your pain. When I first started using benzoyl peroxide to treat my acne, I was using Proactiv Original, and I had horrible side effects. The key to successfully treating your acne with products like Equate, is to understand how to use them correctly, use the correct amount, use consistently and be sure to moisturize! Doing all of these things will ensure your success! That is why I give Equate the review that I do! It's cheap, it's effective, and it's easy to use! If you want to see my before and after pictures, you can look up Equate's 3-Step Acne System Acne Soldier review on Google! I'd post a link here, but I don't know the rules about posting links in reviews. I just wanted to post my transformation to show you guys that this product is great, and to provide you with a real-life case study to look into! As always, I love Acne org by Dan Kern the best, but when I'm looking for a quick BP fix, Equate is my go-to product, and I definitely recommend adding it into your arsenal.”
