Whadup skincare routine! I thought I'd share with you my skincare routine (for both morning and evening) in the hope it can help you guys out there who are still suffering from that bastard we all know as acne. So, on we go: Morning LUSH Coalface Cleanser - I use this with an exfoliating pad I bought from Target. I cut little pieces off the block of cleanser and work it into a lather with my hands. I then apply to my face, wet the exfoliating pad, and "buff" the cleanser into my s
So about this time last year I was put onto a six-month Minocycline treatment course for acne. I finished my course in September. I have to say, that stuff in awesome.

A bit new to this blog thing, but I figured I'd give it a shot. I've been battling acne since I was about ten or eleven. I was eleven when I was first introduced to the wonders of Benzoyl Peroxide. My mother took me down to one of the local pharmacies, and I was told to use a 5% Benzoyl Peroxide cream and an alcohol wash to clean my face. I stuck to this regime almost religiously. After a few months, I invested in the Garnier Pure 3-in-1 Wash, Scrub & Mask. I used this for a fe
