  1. Hi guys! I'm an oldie who hasn't posted in a while. I'm Korean with medium skin (don't know the skin color type but I'm a MAC NC30 shade). I've had three Fraxel Restore procedures done, all on low mjs (15, 16, and 18). My third one was three weeks ago at 18mj with 8 passes. It was the strongest the RN would go because she was very worried I might experience hyperpigmentation. My scars are not too deep and I did not want to risk discoloration so I did not object to the low settings. Well, after
  2. I've been a member for almost two years now, though I have not posted in a while. I have been visiting every few days and I am interested to find out how the tests on the 302 protein drops will turn out. For anyone who is interested, I am not a suspicious character nor am I associated with the 302 company despite the fact that I only have 30-something posts I've been around long enough to have gone through a couple of these "hostile" phases. The first I can remember was the Pakistani lady's c
  3. Jonah, Hey, thanks for the info about glycolicondemand being on holiday. I must say you're right about my sounding so desperate. In the clear light of day, I have to laugh at myself so eager to get my hands on some really dangerous "chemical substance" 8-[ Still, I hope she comes back soon. I need my fix! [-o<
  4. Ummm... if you haven't from her either, JYuma, it must mean she is away or does not have access to the internet. I really hope that is the case because I am counting on her to get the TCA and I've already paid the money!?!
  5. Hey guys, I have a question for those who bought TCA from the seller glycolicondemand. How long did it take for you to receive the TCA? I already paid through PayPal last Wednesday and she did say it would take her a few days to get it from the company she does business with. I have emailed her twice asking her about the shipment but she has not replied at all for a couple of days. This has me a little worried because she was always so good and prompt about emailing back with answers, usually
  6. I agree with you, Maya. I think the soaps would make great "exotic" holiday gifts for my friends. I actually purchased several soaps from curryboy yesterday, a couple for myself and some for my friends. My husband seems to like the soap too. He's been using the soaps twice a day and the sample I got is dwindling down fast. Although I feel that it would take quite a while to see results and the soap alone would probably not reduce scars dramatically, I feel it is a good exfoliator and great to us
  7. Update on papaya soap: I've been using it twice a day, morning and night. Last night, I left it on until I could feel a slight tingling (above my upper lip area and cheeks). After I washed it off, I felt a slight tingling and tautness on my cheeks. No change in scars but I really don't expect to see any difference there for some time. Like any other treatment method, I think I need to put in a lot of time and patience. But I do like this soap. When you're using the papaya enzyme mask, be sure
  8. I received my sample of the papaya soap yesterday afternoon (thanks again curryboy!) and started using it last night. It has a peculiar scent, not at all a "papaya" scent - it reminds me of something but I can't put my finger on what. It lathers pretty well. I lathered the soap in my hands first, then on my face. I lathered it vigorously and left it on my face for a couple of minutes. I felt a slight tingling sensation around my mouth and, strangely, above my eyebrows. The tingling was nothing m
  9. I bought the micordermabrasion cloth from ebay a few months ago. The first time I used it, I thought "cool!". The fourth time around, I must have gotten a teeny weeny bit too aggressive. I sorta scrubbed my cheeks with it a few times (my cheeks being the most scarred part of my face) and oh my god! My cheeks turned red and a couple of days later, I had scabs forming all over the place. I mean brown scabs, the kind you used to get as a child after you fall off your bike. The scabs fell off a week
  10. Thanks curryboy! I am really looking forward to trying it out. I was thinking of bidding on ebay for the soap but I went out to dinner on Saturday night and only remembered about it after the listing was closed. Wonder who bought it? Anyway, thanks again. Will let you know when I receive it. Oh, I have started using the papaya enzyme mask from Zia and I like it. Smells yummy too. It seems to be pretty gentle (no redness or irritation) so I use it 3-4 times a week. The instructions say that it is
  11. Scorpion_Vixen, I've been using Olay Regenerist for about 10 days now. Although it's too early to see results, I really like it so far. I use a little at night after washing off the papaya enzyme mask (I am on the "papaya" regimen at the moment) and it feels matte but not too drying. I've read that it is similar to the La Mer Facial Serum but a looooot cheaper. It hasn't broken me out at all. I was using copper peptides for several months but have since stopped. I was spot-treating my scars a
  12. Oh dear. Why is it so difficult to get information about this soap? I have been doing research on the internet (thank you, grace) and there does seem to be quite a few brands out there. But, as with all things, I have a feeling not all papaya soaps are created equal and would like to at least try this soap in particular. Surely it is not that exclusive? Is there anyone out there with information?
  13. I think there are a few people besides myself who would be interested in trying this soap. We probably all have a skin/scar regimen which include various products and procedures and I think including this soap (which contains an ingredient known to be good for reducing scars) would be an inexpensive but worthwhile experiment (for, let's face it, we are all experimenting with our faces at this stage). I don't think it would interfere with other products and, being a soap, I am guessing it won't b
  14. Emu oil is great but I still have a problem with the smell. I've never thought I was the "scent-sensitive" type but I am having a hard time getting used to the emu oil smell (I have the SkinBiology one). What makes it a little better is, I dab a few drops of The Body Shop's perfume oil (the dewberry one, one of my favorites) under my nose so I smell the dewberry and not the emu oil, then I try to fall asleep as quickly as I can before the dewberry smell flies away. It is pretty idiotic but it's
  15. Thanks everyone for helping me with the emu oil "smell" question. Guess I'll just have to get used to it because I like the oil a lot. I had no idea it actually came from the bird. I wonder what part of the bird the oil comes from... :-k
