Week 3:

Okay! things are turning out for the better. As you all know, I purchased some products at the beginning of the week and they are working for me just great. The Neutrogena scrub is doing absolute wonders for my skin as far as my T-Zone and the overall texture. It's a lot softer and I have seen a great improvement in the tone as well; The facial cleanser I like only because I have been using it for so long, its gentle and its specified on relaxing your skin while cleaning which I love & its always been beneficial for me; My moisturizer on the other hand, makes me pretty greasy when I initially put it on but I find if I pat a little off after I've thoroughly rubbed it in it does do its job and I've seen less flakes.

As for my problem areas such as the forehead, right cheek and upper left cheek they have gotten much better by the end of this week.

My forehead is 90% clear

My right cheek is still struggling somewhat but overall less red and less inflamed.

My left cheek/upper nose problem area however seems to be the most stubborn, although completely flat they are still red and they are still somewhat active spots

New Spots?

Yes, but tiny tiny spots, you know those bumps under the skin that nobody else can really see, but you notice. Yup, thats what I have now on the right part of my jawline, but nothing too serious i'm hoping these go away by my 7 weeks (:

Overall; I have seen great improvement so far and I am not giving up what-so-ever!

There is a burning sensation at first... In the second week when my skin was getting used to the cream putting on moisturizer burned, and I find that right after I get out of the shower and pat my face dry just the touch of the towel burns my face as well, but only for a second, and that may be because i have sensitive skin, but ! beauty is pain.. haha I recommend this product only because it gives ultimate results you just need patience, I just finished my fourth week and im breaking out on my left cheek but nothing too serious just gotta get through the rough stages before the beautiful ones /:
