If I were you I would ditch all of the products you've been using and try washing your face with just water and then applying apple cider vinegar (dilited with water). Or if that's too drastic step for you, simply replace the toner you currently use with apple cider vinegar.

if your acne has been going on that long i would look into spiro. it works really well especially if you have hormonal acne. where do you normally breakout?

I feel your pain. I've been struggling with acne since I was 12, i'm now 27. Tried all sorts of topical products and prescription drugs and it seems like nothing will ever work. I'm positive that the problem I have is based on hormones which makes it harder to control. I just wanted to let you know that you're not alone in this battle and you can't let spots control your life, and I KNOW, somedays it's so hard to do and overcome the reflection in the mirror.

How does the coconut oil work out so far?
