Facewash Blues and WOOHOOs & Accutane/Amnesteem week 6/7 cont.



So, I've tried so effing many facewashes throughout my teen and young adult life that there should be some kind of law against it (and being pre-law I'm learning that there have been worse laws, yeah you heard me Alabama "You may not have an ice cream cone in your back pocket at any time." who thinks of these things?! Don't answer that.) Anyways, I think I've finally settled on a facewash that I should have stuck to in the first place!

Cetaphil Gentle Cleansing Bar, Antibacterial

It's good stuff peeps.

I used it about 2 years ago and I remember going "wow, I love this stuff" because it was clearing up my acne. But of course, the only facewash I've ever really been happy with THEY DON'T SELL IN THE STORES I SHOP AT! So I gave up on the Cetaphil and began another endless quest to find something to replace it, without luck. So, here I am searching the product reviews on acne.org and I stumble upon the Cetaphil Gentle Cleansing Bar review and realize that everyone else thought the same as I did. "This stuff is amazing." and "It works great!" were what I was reading and a lightulb went off in my head...Why hadn't I stuck with it to begin with?!

Well..I finally found it! They sell it at a grocery store near me I'M SO HAPPY :(

So that's my new cleanser/facewash from now on and hopefully forever. So far my skin feels soo soft and looks less red so hopefully it will aid in clearing up my face along with Amnesteem.

Amnesteem UPDATE:

No new zits so far but I am starting to have a little back/chest pain (its like a pressure release feeling like when you lay on your stomach for a long time and get up...it only happens when i'm sitting in a weird position for a while and move, I dunno). I do get a weird dermatitis rash thing on the backs of my hands if I wash them too much but that is combated with hydrocortizone cream and regular moisturizing :(.

So far so good!

If anyone has any suggestions for me about side effects or supplements that helped with them while on Accutane it would be really helpful!
