  1. I'm glad Accutane has worked well for you so far. I'm on my second week, and it's so far so good. I've got a bit of dryness, especially on my lips, but noticing gradual improvements. To read how pleased you are, after a long period of time, really gives me hope and confidence to persevere with everything. Thanks and good luck!
  2. Well I used to use something called "Neutrogena Clear Pore Lotion", which was basically a clear liquid, whose main ingredient was Salicylic Acid. They changed the name since to "Neutrogena Visibly Clear Lotion", but still with Salicylic Acid. I don't know of any Neutrogena Clear Pore that contains BP. Maybe it is new.
  3. O.k, so maybe this is a bit materialistic, and for most people here, cost would be no problem if it guaranteed being clear - I know it wouldn't be for me. Anyway, I'm just curious. How much do you estimate that your attempt at getting rid of acne costs you each week?? How much do you spend on your products?? I would say I spend on average about £10 per week on things. I guess it doesn't seem much on its own, but that is roughly £40 per month, and over £500 per year.
  4. Well just to let you know, I ordered the Glycolic Acid lotion from perfectskin.uk.com today. Should arrive in a few days, so I will keep everyone posted!!
  5. Thank you so much for your help everyone, I'll check all these things out. It is greatly appreciated.
  6. Hi everyone, Just a bit of a problem... I've been following the Acne Cure regimen, which has been working fairly well, and as my Glycolic Acid part of it, I had been using Boots' Botanics Intensive Moisture Cream for men. However, since I've been abroad (I took a huge supply with me lol) I found out that this product has been discontinued. Not wanting to disrupt the regimen, I am in desperate need of a new product containing Glycolic Acid which I can obtain in the UK, or get on a UK based

  8. That's really great, good for you!! I hope it all works out well.
  9. Well I've been good too, I haven't picked at anything for about 5 days. In fact, all the old scabs have fallen off, so it's just me and the acne now. The thing is, for the first time, I've finally accepted that I've got acne. I always thought it was just a temporary thing, and that eventually I would have perfect skin, if I just picked things away. I can see now that I was wrong. With no scabs hiding things, making the acne seem better, I can see the real damage. This was maybe the reas
  10. Well I am up and down, for a few days I feel good, the I pick and feel bad, then it gets better, but I pick again. The cycle keeps going. Not really looking forward to New Year's Eve, might try and pretend to be ill so I don't have to go out, my face is looking pretty crap at the moment. I can only hope the New Year brings me a change in fortune.
  11. Well my scabs have nearly gone, but I've got a few big pimples, and loads of clearly-visible whiteheads for my troubles... ](*,) It is so tempting to pick, but I am being quite good. Now I am at home with people who care about me, I am less paranoid about how I look, because they love me whatever. Hopefully things will get better, and I will be ewarded for not picking. [-o< Summer please hang in there honey!! Things WILL get better. HAPPY CHRISTMAS everyone!! 8)
  12. Hi everyone, Summer and Ashley, I´m so glad things are better for you. =D> / I wish I had your will-power. But I´m like you Nice Fellow, I pick just as things are nearly cleared up. I did it again at the weekend, and now I have scabs over my face for my last week at the school. Not a nice way to be remembered. I just hope it is cleared up for this Friday, when I get picked up at the airport. I will keep you updated.
  13. It´s a deal Summer. I have been quite good, only picked at it a bit, nothing too major. I am just trying to take each day as it comes, then start "afresh" the next day. The scabs are healing very well, so if I just keep things like this, it will all be fine before i go back. [-o< Summer, what medications are you on?? If your acne is just on your forehead, you should be able to get it cleared up quite quickly with the regimen, and a bit of patience. I hope that things will be
  14. Wow thank you Ashley for making this thread, it is nice to hear other people´s experiences. I thought that I was the only one silly enough to keep destroying my face. Because really, this is what we are doing. PICKING, although a "temporary" relief, DOES NOT WORK. ](*,) I am going to tell my story, because I think that it will help me. I haven´t been able to post so much on this board recently, because I have been living in Germany for the last 4 months. Basically, I turned 2
  15. Thanks you two!! Gaz, I already use Oxy in the Shower, the S.A wash. It is working well, I'm gonna stick with it for the next 6 weeks, see if that will shift it all. Do u reckon the B.P wash would be more effective?? I just don't fancy rubbing B.P into my back.
