  1. Hi, yeah I used the retin A because my doctor said it helps with fading marks a bit as well as evening out skin tone and I'm also using peels weekly. Well the oozing has stopped and now the area is less red and incredibly dry my whole skin feels very tight right now because its drying and peeling like crazy.
  2. is the sunburned look going to heel? i didnt view retin a micro as an issue because it doesnt seem to be benefiting my skin much
  3. I use 40% lactic acid peel once a week and ive never had any problems its been improving the texture of my skin and lightening old marks. However I recently started using retin A micro because my doctor said its "okay" in terms of evening out skin tone and lightening marks as well although using it for the past week I haven't experienced and peeling or tingling or dryness with the product perhaps my skin is resistant to it (o.1%) Anyways last night I used my lactic acid and for some of the area
  4. I don't wear a lot of makeup. I've been using Marcelle's two in one powder and I dab very little dermablend on my cheeks wherever there are scars. My problem is that my skin is extremely oily and it doesn't matter what type of foundation or powder I use it always easily slides off if someone touches my face which is gross. I always have retarded friends and people who like to pinch my cheeks. I'm 19 so this is something that I absolutely hate especially since I know my makeup will come off in
  5. Yeah I heard the same thing about oily skin not getting wrinkled until wayyy later. Thank god for that. I don't break out much actually except for the occasional pimple. What happened was that december 2001 I suddenly broke out all at once. This was something that hadn't happened to me before. I got twenty pimples on one cheek and than twenty on the other the month after when the other cheek had healed. This was really weird and I still don't understand how it happened. They all disappear
  6. I got this product from L'oreal it's a vitamin e moisturizer called future e and for some reason it's flaking off the top layers of my skin. I have minor scarring that was bad last year but its improved quite dramatically during the past couple of months. My skin's evening out quite a bit and the scars are very faint now. It could be because of the moisturizer but I've had scars twice before as I've mentioned on here and they always fade and even out within 14 months so that might be it
  7. I don't agree with the banning of it and I still use Proactive because it does help a lot. The only thing that's ever worked for me has been benzoyl peroxide. I've used other products with benzoyl peroxide as well so why don't they ban those products also? I do think it's retarded but there's nothing that I can do. And my doctor's prescribed benzamycin to me and that has benzoyl peroxide in it. In fact I'm pretty sure a lot of people use products in Canada with benzoyl peroxide in it. I hav
  8. And like I said I don't know how much truth there is to it, but amusingly enough Proactive didn't email me back. Talk about Customer Service.
  9. Ha ha No one's going to invade Canada. We don't start anything with any country.
  10. This could just be coincidence people but I don't know. If anyone else has heard anything or has found anything on the net let me know.
  11. But than again it could be coincidence but either way it is banned. I'm not sure if its just my city or all of Canada. I can't seem to find anything on it either.
  12. Well the woman that works there say its been banned as they have apparently discontinued using it. I don't see why she'd say that if there wasn't some truth to it. She said they were told to discontinue carrying the product and that they were all picked up. I emailed Proactive asking them about it and I will look it up on the internet.
  13. My mom went to pick some proactive up for me because I was all out. There's this store in the mall by my house that sells products that are seen on tv. Anyways the lady that works there said that proactive has been banned in Canada as three people have been discovered to have some type of skin cancer. I suspect it's coincidence but I could be wrong. Just thought I should let people know.
