Let me tell you, the ingredients are scary. TEA is the first ingredient and that is bad stuff https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Triethanolamine#Cosmetics_and_medicine So I am returning it. Sorry, $42 CAD for a ball of soap the sze of a golfball with a pH of 8 or higher and TEA as the main ingredient is not worth it. I will continue with the ASAP 365 Silver gel, and collodial silver as a "toner" but as far as cleanser goes... back to Dove
I bought some colloidial silver liquid suspension. I found that spraying it on my face helps with hydration and comfort. I tried just wipes and water, then just water but because I wear a lot of sunscreen that wasn't enough. I went back to Cerave foaming, Drying but okay. I've order a trial size bar of Cor Silver soap. My plan is to try all silver, when I get the soap: Cor Silver soap (pH of 6.8) then tone with CS liquid (has a pH of 5) and moisturize with silver gel. I also use a 5% nici
It's been a while since I've updated this blog but I wanted to chart my progress. My problem is not so much acne in the form of pustules, but rather a tendency toward clogged pores and excess keratization. Perhaps some one reading can relate. I have keratosis pilaris and it does affect the lower region of my face as well as my arms, and hips/thighs.

After some time, I faced the fact that Dove is not what it used to be. I find it irritating and drying as well as pore clogging. This really bums me out, I had an emotional thing with Dove Beauty Bar. Anyway, I found that I am fairly reactive to a lot of common things in cleansers. I can't handle cerave stuff, especially the lotion or cream. For me, nicinamide makes my skin very angry. I did some research and found out about a cleanser made by a company called Pharmaceutical Specialties, the
Well, it's been almost a week and dove soap is not what it used to be. I don't know what is changed in the last two years, but I seem to react to it over a very short time. It appears to be very drying and irritating. there's also the issue with the water in my apartment. It's not good, and I need something that's going to combat that. I've settled on Spectro jel because I was informed by a pharmacist (I know, not a dermatologist but somebody with some knowledge of chemistry) that spectro h
November 17 2015 The picture on my profile was from last winter. I was using Marcelle's Ultra Gentle Cleansing gel, but you know what made it that clear and even? Avene's High Protection sunscreen...before they changed the formula and removed the zinc. Now it's all titanium dioxide and I don't dig it. I've had some struggles with my late 30's skin. Due in part to food allergies and hormones. For the record I have combination/dry skin with large open pores, Mediterranean heritage.
