Fucidin H Cream
By mick96 on 11/23/2014

I am an 18 yo male and have some pretty bad breakouts lately and have been struggling to make them go away, I heard from a friend that this was a great remedy. Long story short its ok if you want to reduce redness, scarring e.c but as a treatment to actually prevent acne it doesn't work. The search goes on........

Drinking water
By prettysoul on 11/23/2014

I stopped with drinking Coca Cola and Sprite and drinks like that and now it's been 2 months that I am drinking only water and my face is getting better and better. There's no new break outs and that is very important for me. I only drink Coca Cola when I have some stomach problems. Water is the best, believe me!!! There is no such a drink like water is.

Pears Transparent Soap
By justanotherduder on 11/23/2014

My skin has been acne prone since I was about 14 and the severity of it has varied in all the years since. I'm now 28. I've found that in my older age, my acne really depends on the product I'm using. People seem to believe that acne is a very bodily-intrinsic thing that results because of your hormones. I guess this would be true for most people but I'm 100% sure the main factor for me in my older age is simply skin allergy. My skin is highly sensitive to the product I'm using and it seems that a good 95% of all products I try break me out unfortunately.

There have been few products that are alright for my skin. Soap has rarely broken me out but the flipside is that most of the brands make my skin terribly dry. Nivea for Men - Sensitive Face Wash was one of the first products that I noticed broke me out a lot less than other face washes. Sadly the old formula they used to use was discontinued and the new one is very bad for my skin so I wouldn't recommend it.

One of the best face washes I ever used was called 'Saeed Ghani Cucumber Face Wash'. It's very good and it didn't break me out at all. Unfortunately this product is only available in Pakistan. I lived in Lahore for a good three years using that product and while I did my skin was fine. I even took a few satchels of it with me back to the UK that lasted me a year and in all that time I had the rarest outbreaks that were hardly worth fretting about anyway. Really mild spots and extremely rare, nothing to worry about.

When that product finished, I was lucky to find a hotel toiletree called 'BioEnergy Bath Gel Aloe Vera'. Believe it or not, this was easily the BEST face wash I ever used by far and it still is. It left my skin feeling amazingly smooth and it wasn't the least bit drying and I didn't break out with that stuff at all. It was brilliant. I even contacted the company and tried ordering a crate of the stuff from them but they said that they only supply large scale to hotel contracts so that was a shame. But damn, that bath gel was really something.

Sadly once the bath gel and Saeed Ghani cucumber face wash finished I had to again find a new cleanser that wouldn't break me out. It took me a long long time to find something. It was really annoying and saddening to me because I had honestly thought that I had finally outgrown acne after being relatively spot free for over three years. When I then tried something called 'Simple - Kind to Skin Face Wash' and started breaking out properly again I realised that the honeymoon was over and I again needed to find something that worked for me. I went through many different cleansers including Cetaphil, Olay Sensitive Foaming Face Wash, The Body Shop Aloe Vera Sensitive Face Wash and many others. Some of these cleansers were better than others but I still broke out with all of them to different degrees.

I can actually feel right after using a face wash in the shower whether or not it's going to affect my skin (even though I often tried to ignore tingling with denial at first). A face wash that works doesn't make my skin feel tight or give it a tingly/irritated sensation. It just feels completely neutral on my skin and doesn't affect it in any way. I had completely forgotten about this neutral feeling since using the aforementioned cucumber face wash and the aloe vera BioEnergy bath gel but thankfully I have FINALLY found it again and the remedy is something so simple and inexpensive. I couldn't be gladder at this point.

When visiting my sister's place, there was a little orange see-through soap sitting there that I decided to try out. After using it in the shower, I felt that brilliant neutral feel. The soap didn't make my skin sting and it didn't dry it out. It leaves my skin feeling perfectly smooth and amazing. It's obvious to me that it doesn't break my skin out. I've been using this soap for over a week now and thank god I FINALLY have clear skin again and it's here to stay. My skin feels so good again and I know that finally acne is behind me; so long as the company doesn't go bust and they keep selling to the UK. As I said earlier in this post, soap usually kept my skin clear but it would dry it out real bad and make it appear slightly reddish - this soap doesn't do that at all! It actually leaves my skin radiant and looking good. I'd say it's just as good as the cucumber face wash but NOT as good as the hotel bath gel. That stuff was 10/10. This soap however is 9.5/10.

Well without further ado, I'll go ahead and tell you that the soap is 'Pears Transparent Soap' and it's a gift from the gods for me. Not only does it leave my skin looking good and make it feel smooth as hell and acne free, it's very cheap!

So there you go. Hope this helps you in your quest because it certainly helped me. Of course, please don't get your hopes up too much as acne is highly subjective to the person and caused by different variables. Even if, like me, your skin is highly sensitive to the product you're using, you might find that this product isn't particularly good for your skin while it's great for mine. In any event, give it a try. It might just improve things for you!

Pros:

+ Doesn't break me out while most products do

+ Leaves skin feeling amazingly smooth

+ Skin looks radiant and blemish free

+ Inexpensive

Cons:

Just the tiniest bit drying, but nowhere near as drying as other soaps are. Other soaps I've tried (Neutrogena, Dove, Liquid Castile) make my facial skin red but with this my skin appears bright and radiant

Pond's Cold Cream
By msroboto on 11/23/2014

Putting something so greasy and full of perfume on my face really went against everything doctors and dermatologist have told me. But I'm glad I did because I'm actually seeing results. I don't know if it stops new acne from forming but it is helping my existing acne (including cysts) heal way faster and also keeping my dry skin moisturized. I've been using it for about 2 weeks now putting it on most nights and some mornings if my skin is extra dry.

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.”

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.”

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.”

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.”
