Regimen:

AM

Neutrogena Oil Free Acne Stress Control Power Cream Wash (with AHA and salicylic acid)

La Roche Posay Effaclar Duo (5.5% Benzoyl Peroxide and 0.4% LHA)

Shiseido Ultimate Sun Protection Cream for Face SPF 55

PM

Neutrogena Oil Free Acne Stress Control Power Clear Scrub (on certain areas only)

Neutrogena Oil Free Acne Stress Control Power Cream Wash

La Roche Posay Effaclar Duo (5.5% Benzoyl Peroxide and 0.4% LHA)

Avene Hydrance Optimale Legere Light Hydrating Cream

So I went back to using the Effaclar Duo twice a day instead of once - it seemed that my acne came back faster when using benzoyl peroxide less. I wanted to wean off of BP for a bit because of the dry skin that came with it, and also so that I had an opportunity at night for my skin to undergo chemical exfoliation via AHA and BHA, but I'm not using the AHA treatment at the moment. My acne has gone down the past couple of days after upping my BP dosage to twice a day now.

I'm also using MUFE HD foundation nowadays, applied with a MAC 187 (stippling brush). I dunno if I like it enough to buy a full size version - I'm still deciding between this and Lancome's Teint Idole Ultra. The MUFE evens out my skin very well - since I don't plan on going full coverage, just for evening out my skintone. We'll see.

I might also switch out my cleanser and scrubs. The whole reason why this regimen started 56 days ago was because I wanted to use Neutrogena's Acne Stress Control products to combat acne. They're very gentle products, but they haven't been strong enough to give me the results that I wanted for my skin. I'm also going to go entirely for non-drugstore skincare items now, just because I haven't found a drugstore item that has been a complete savior to my skin (except for Neutrogena's 2-in-1 wash/mask from the UK, which I can't get).
