    Most comfortable shave I have experienced Nice Design Handy features Quite expensive - but worth it! I have used many razors in my time and this is the one that I always come back to! It gives the closest, most comfortable shave. I am very prone to developing razor burn, however this one keeps it to a bare minimum. It's a nice and sleek design, has many great features such as single edging blade - perfect for sideburns!

    Cheap Simple Felt like a pair of claws down my face! Razor burn Firstly, this only applies to my skin...everybody's is different and it's important to bare that in mind when reading this. I have very sensitive skin, most of my acne has been reduced to marks, I have very bristly facial hair that grows very quick. I used the fusion proglide previously with not much of an issue, but was concerned when I read about the "danger of 5 blades" so after reading the rave reviews of t
  3. For as long as I remember I have always had stubble during the times i've had acne. The acne is literally only where I have my little beard (well wouldn't go quite as far as calling it a beard!). The only reason i've not experimented with shaving it off is because is kind of hides the acne, but does anyone know if beard/stubble and using a trimmer is worse for acne? It seems to be a mixed bag of answers on the net.
  4. Day 13/14 (I forgot which day this actually is) I've given up with the water only, it has made my skin 10x worse than it was when I was previously using stuff to clean my face. I also was speaking to my dad's friend who is a dermatologist and he said washing with only water isnt likely to do my skin type (dry, acne prone) any favours and that I should using a moisturising cleanser - back to cetaphil...which I have to say worked alright last time I used it. At least I gave it a shot Good luck
  5. Thanks for replying buddy, I'll stick to this
  6. Day 11 So I inadvertently washed my face in the shower yesterday with a cleanser, don't know was it was just a force of habit I guess, and my skin has taken a tumble! After days of just washing with water and my skin looking alright it has turned super dry, flakey and tight since using the product! Yikes...suppose just goes to show! I had to put a little bit of moisturiser on as it was quite uncomfortable. Back to washing with just water! Before this slip up, my skin is going through a strange
  7. To be honest I think I might be scrubbing my skin instead of gentle washing it. I've read on a few other forums that it is normal for this to happen and it is just your face getting used to not having all the chemicals on it, removing all of the oils etc. Will keep this up to date
  8. Day 7 Ok so 7 days into not washing with any products and my skin is starting to break out in lots of tiny little spots - i normally only get one or two large ones. Does anyone think that this is maybe due to washing only with water?
  9. Day 4 Nothing much to report. No new spots, the large spot that was there before popped and left a huge ass mark on my face...honestly looks like I've been punched :s On the whole my face is less red and tight. Also feel better as washing water is effortless, no fancy nonsense techniques.
  10. So after years of trying numerous prescription and non prescription drugs and washes, including roaccutane, I'm 22 and still have moderate acne... I've officially given up! From now on I am going to simply wash my face with water twice a day, gently exfoliate with a clean face cloth twice a week, moisturise only when I need to and generally eat healthier. I am taking anti biotic prescribed by the doctor to clear excisting spots and will continue to take this. Why? Well after roaccutane my face
  11. I have been in contact with GSK and they have confirmed that it has been discontinued. Apparently OXY- on the spot has NOT been discontinued, the company that manufactures it has just faced unprecedented demand and is facing issues with supply. Hope this helps, seems strange that they would discontinue such a popular product huh?
  12. Hi, I've recently started on the regimen and all was going good until I got to day 4 when I was a bit over generous with the BP (Because I thought my skin was tolerating it well!) and put a tiny bit more than i think of should of so early on. I dont think that I am allergic as I have used it no problems before, do you think I should just apply a little less and grin and bear the redness for the next few days? I've included a photo. Many thanks

    Roaccutane

    Roaccutane
  14. I went to the dermatologist a few weeks ago, after waiting for like three months on a waiting list, to be prescribed Roaccutane. My GP told me that this would be the best course of action as I have already been on three different antibiotics and three different topical treatments...without any success! Anyway I got to the dermatologist and she explained Roaccutane, gave me brochures, thing for a blood test, but then said that she wasn't going to give me it just yet. Instead, she prescribed Tetra
