Hi Everyone!!!

I just wanted to share with you some exciting news and hopefully *crossed fingers* a regimen that will work for you. So, after Biore stopped working and only controlled my acne, I decided to move on and after tons of looking and research I found St. Ives. However, after what I had read from the people on here about how much they did NOT like it, I was really hesitant. But I saw the price ($2-$3) and my mom said it was worth a shot...so we gave in. And I'm SO glad we did!!!!!!! OMJ! Maybe I have not given it enough time, but so far it has cleared up my acne dramatically, softened my face (SO much) and given me a cute lil glow!

I'm SOOO happy!

I have tried:

~Offbrand of Proactiv

~Neutrogena kit (sorry..I can't remember the name)

~Clean and Clear

~ZapZyt (Walgreens)

~Target brand

~Biore

and there are other offbrands that I cannot remember.

So HERE is what my skin was like before St. Ives

~Oily in spots

~SUPER dry in spots

~Greasy feeling/rough

~lots of acne

~Red, irritated skin

~Blackheads

2-3 weeks later: where I am at now

My skin is:

~Super soft

~Looks healthy

~Feels and looks hydrated

~Not oily

~ Just a few small shrinking zits

~All blackheads are gone/not noticeable

The REGIMEN! (what I did at least :P)

Morning:

~St. Ives blemish fighting Apricot Cleanser (Oily/Blemish Prone)

Contains .5% Sallicylic Acid and is oil free

Then I moisturize with

~Biore's Nourish with SPF 15: http://www.biore.com/usa/products/productD...sp?productid=20

(I couldn't find a moisturizer with St. Ives at the Walmart I was at, and I <3 this one!)

But this is the Lotion NOT the night serum!!!!!!

Nightime:

If I have on makeup I use the St. Ives Makeup remover and FACIAL CLEANSER

Follow with the morning St. Ives Blemish Fighting Apricot Cleanser

Then lastly but NOT least, the moisturizer from Bioré

2x a week:

EXFOLIATION!

I know many of you have complained of it being rough, but I found that if you really moisten your face before hand and then gently apply it in large dots on your face, rub/massage with small circles for about 30-40 sec, then let it sit for another 30. That helps the sandpaper feel ALOT!

NOTE: Before I knew how I was going to do my regimen...I used the exfoliator daily as my cleanser for about 4 days. So I dont' know if that has anything to do with my skin condition now, but it is amazing!!

I have gotten many compliments, and it just feels alot better to be in 'new' skin :)

And that's it!!!

Those were just the products available at the Walmart that we went to, but seeing their website, they have soooooooooooooooo many more products, including ones for your body...etc

I hope that these can bring you UBER great success like it has so far for me, but if you have any questions that are directed toward me, PLEASE post them/email me etc. I can check back on here daily :)

Good Luck!!

P.S. I can post pix for you if you would like....but slight problem. I don't know how to. LOL. So if anyone wants to provide instructions, I will gladly do my best to get them up here :)
