I've been taking megadose B5 for 20 days already. So far, I do notice a HUGE reduction of oil. I have oily skin and my face would become extremely oily in 2-3 hours after washing. After taking B5 for 20 days, my skin is, in general less oily throughout the day. But unfortunately my acne is not clearing yet. Some people said they saw improvements already. I guess I am my own worse enemy. I never focus on how much my skin improved gradually throughout the past 2 months but instead, focus too much on the number of zits on my face. I feel like I'm literally counting the number of zits on my face, and to be honest, it is a depressing activity.
Btw, my derm gave me a sample of a face cream - neostrata bionic lotion. i find it very moisturizing! I believe you can purchase it at your local drug stores. I'm definitely getting it after I'm done with this sample.
