if it is all caked on and your face is white, it does sound like you are using way too much moisturizer.

Let me know exactly which products you are using, how much you are using, and how often.

ur skin isnt dry coz thats what moisturisers do lol

makin ur face white is definately overkill.

apply it thinly an thats it

rub it in ur hands an smooth an gently glide ur hands over ur skin.

i honestly was thinkin of goin on accutane but the regimen WORKS brother!

its about patience an time

roccutane breaks u out before it clears u usually so ur skin wil get worse 1st an taht wud suck im sure ud agree.

You need to use the bp twice daily to get optimal results.

Can you work in a morning application?

And as for the moisturizer, only use as much as you need.

some people need alot, while others only need a little. Don't just cake it on, play around with it and find your ideal amount.

by "marks" are you referring to the little pinkish/red spots that are left after a pimple heals?

You can consider adding something with AHA, such as a moisturizer with a bit of glycolic or lactic acid. Those are chemical exfoliants and help to resolve those red spots quicker.

never try to get that stuff off your face any quicker than its going to come out on its own. you will almost ALWAYS make it worse and than it will be on even longer.

i think it depends more on where it is, determining whether the red mark will last longer
