I just took my 30th pill. I've been an Clarus for one month. Things could not be better! My skin looks amazing, I had ridiculously shiny skin, it's not shiny at all any more. I only wear a primer and a powder when I go out. I only have to wash my hair 2 or three times a week. I'm amazed. Starting tomorrow I will be increasing my dosage (as prescribed by my dermatologist). I will alternate between 1 pill and 2 pills every day (each pill is 40mg) I'm a little concerned about the side effects getting worse. They are so minor at this point, I have dry lips, my eyes feel a bit dry once in a while, I get dry boogers (no nose bleeds) and... that's it! My skin is not flaky, it's not even dry.
