Day 5! It's hard to say which day I actually started taking accutane as I actually bought accutane online and it arrive on Tuesday the 29th so I took one of those then, but officially took the accutane my derm provided on Wednesday the 30th. I've also been trying to use up the online accutane up so I've been taking one of those in the morning and then my actual accutane prescription in the evening. So I guess I'm double dosing and taking 40mg, but the reviews of the online accutane say its quite under dosed so idk. 

In regards to my skin, I haven't seen many/if any side effects. My skin is less oily, especially down my nose and chin, although my forehead is still quite oily - where the bulk of my acne is. I'm yet to get dry skin and lips and theres been no real reduction in terms of acne. The spot I had next to my mouth is subsiding, I've been slathering it in Aquaphor which has helped heal the skin under the scab that formed, and its helped to soften the scab which rolled away this morning LOL I love when that happens. 

The one thing I am noticing at the minute is when I when I get out the shower my face stays red for a good hour afterwards and feels really hot! I remember having this from the last two times I was on accutane, I used to also get really bad hot flushed!

Will update again in a couple of days, hopefully I'll start to see more side effects soon. Looking at my blog from the last time I was on accutane, the majority of side effects came in the second week, only 9 days away!
