My skin is doing great. It's finally used to the Epiduo! One little problem is that sometimes I pop blackheads, and I have long nails so you can already imagine the mess. I have one small scab in one cheek, and then I have one small papule forming in my forehead (which is kind of hurting, so I decided to put the Epiduo on just that pimple during the day).

I also had these two huge pimples two weeks before I started Epiduo which weren't making any progress, and as of today they're finally gone. There's
