My Current Arsenal Of Products For Accutane



Lips: Aquaphor. Just like so many others agree it's the best!! When I got my last tattoo it was recommended and I've since used it on my elbows, feet, and cuticles, never thought to put it on my lips but it feels awesome and seems to be doing its job for now anyway.

**Just discovered Palmer's Cocoa Butter Lip Balm! I'm in love!! I have been obsessed with their moisturizer and this smells just like it and feels amazing!

Body Moisturizer: Johnson & Johnson cocoa and shea butter baby oil gel. I use it after I get out of the shower when my skin is still wet and I don't have nto worry about dry skin. Again, at least for now!

Face Cleanser: CeraVe Foaming Wash. It's not what I'm used to, but it seems to be doing ok. I don't have anyting really remarkable to say about it one way or another.

Face Moisturizer: Cetaphil Face Cream. I switched to this, because the CeraVe PM Moisturizer (pictured) stung badly and I just couldn't get used to it.

Also Pictured: I use the Benadryl when the itchiness gets to me. The Biotene does wonders for dry mouth!

I'm open to any suggestions that any other Accutane users have concerning their favorite products. I also wonder if anyone uses or used their Clarisonic during treatment? I am addicted to mine (there's worse things to be hooked on!!) and obviously I am no longer trying to use it twice a day, but I would think it would be beneficial to use it maybe twice a week for 30 seconds with the gentle brush head.

Jebus! I just read your other blogs are you OK!? I'm on week 3 and I don't have any of those symptoms. I use aquaphor after meals, wash my face at night and then lightly pat on some cetaphil cream.

Ha! I've always been somewhat "sensitive" to medications and life in general, I'm sure I'll pull through. I figure it does what it's supposed to, then it'll all be worth it. My vanity has put me through far worse things than this. :)
