Accutane Start to Finish

Hi all,

This is my summary of accutane course start to finito!
My course lasted 5 months to the day and finished yesterday.
I started on 40mg for 30 days then 70mg for the remainder.
Everyone seems to have different experiences, i aim to be neutral as unfortunately some people have very bad experiences and are biased against accutane. However accutane has saved me. I am confident.
Do you know when your fod is covered in bumpy spots and youre in bad  lighting and your mates want to take a picture but you know its going to be gross and  you hate people staring at it and being conscious. Or when you looks like you have a rash down your cheeks full of horrible spots. What is even the point in following new contour trends, no contour will look good on my face. In all fairness, i never had cystic acne, just constant since i was 11 bumpy everyone, white squeezy spots and urgh growing up was the worst.
So accutane right, dry lips everyone seems to get. i mean lather the lip balm on aout 100000 months because you start! it settled down after a while towards to second half it was easily manageable i could go much longer without it :) 
dry skin wasn't that bad. i never peeled or flaked which i feared the most. Although i was religious in moisturising. Sometimes foundation would go patchy in the wind or cold in drier areas but normally ok. I look forward to being able to apply makeup properly again.
dry inner nose ow  though. If i blew my nose in the morning there would be blood. it would crust and be sore to move your nose and id be fingering my nose everyone 30 mins with elizabeth arden 8 hour cream. They were my only sides affects i did well, definitely helped preventing.

Products:

Elemis pro-collagen cleasning balm- morning and night hydrates and deosnt damage skin removes all makeup so no need for makeup wipes ruining your face and enhancing them pores. It is amazing honestly to god.

Elizabeth arden 8 hour cream original- lips, inner nose, dry eyes, dry patches, burns, GOD SEND.

Cetaphil moisturzer- nice on skin hydrating go for it cheap too.

I just hope accutane does not come back now i have finished. But i'd recommend to anyone no other antibitoics has ever does this to me. I feel amazing.
