  1. I have large pores in my t-zone and some light scaring on my cheeks. I've been reading about microneedling and have experience dermarolling stretch marks with okay results. I've read very mixed reviews on microneedling and reducing pore size and I'm wondering if I should try, but I'm scared I'll make my pores larger somehow. Should I try dermarolling for large pores and mild, shallow scarring? What size needles should I use? Would a dermastamp be more effective/safer? Lastly, what serums shou
  2. Omg thank you so much! Yes you helped a bunch. I have dyed hair so I can't use head and shoulders, but my body acne is *mostly* under control which is why I don't want to use something that will make it worse. I'll try your suggestion, thank you!
  3. Hi there, I have extremely sensitive skin and body acne, mainly on my chest and back. I also suffer from acne on my face, mostly around my chin and jaw area but also cheeks and forehead occasionally. I'm super pale -- like I'm so pale that I blend in with the sand at the beach. If I go out in the sun for more than 20 minutes I burn. I was really hoping to try out some self-tanners this spring and summer especially because I'm going to Spain in March but I'm kind of scared I'm going to have
  4. Been using this stuff for years

    This is a staple in my acne regimen. I've been using it since I was 15, and I'm 23 now. I basically use it as spot-treatment and leave it on overnight. I've never actually used it as a "mask", and prefer to use it overnight. It can be very drying, though - so fair warning. If I use it too much on popped pimples, it will cause my skin to flake. It does dry up pesky small pimples that don't seem to go away, and I also use it on my bacne. If I don't have this stuff, I usually freak out.
  5. Great for cystic acne

    I have really bad cystic acne on my back from hormones, sweat, and probably other factors. If I get a cyst, I will crush up a bit of aspirin, mix a drop or two of water with it, and pile a bunch on top of my cysts for spot treatment. I usually leave it on for about 20-30 minutes, and the cysts seem to be less swollen and less painful after washing it off. It's no miracle cure, but great for painful cysts.

    Made me break out

    Made me break out

    yeah... what a bummer. Tried SO many times, even mixed it with green tea but still made me break out. Wasn't meant for my overly-sensitive skin. :(
  7. Good product!

    These smell pretty nice, which worried me because fragrance usually beaks me out. It took off my makeup, and no breakouts the next day. I didn't use these every night, though, just when I felt super lazy. But overall, I have really REALLY sensitive skin and it didn't break me out which means it's pretty good.
  8. This stuff is great

    I use this every night as a toner after I wash my face. I do dilute it, half ACV and the rest water. The only bad thing is that it smells like stinky feet, and it makes your eyes water. Other than that, it doesn't dry out my face and it makes my skin smooth. I also found that it works well on existing acne, as well as make redness go down. I didn't find that it helped dark spots much.
  9. Hi there. I don't get acne on my shoulders, and do have mild to moderate acne on my face/neck area, but for some reason over the past 6 months or so I have been breaking out REALLY BAD on my back. I get very deep cystic pimples on my LOWER back, and I know you are not supposed to pick at them, but I do it until it scabs over and I usually start picking at the scabs too. I just think it's strange that I barely get anything on my shoulders/chest area, but my lower back.... my god it looks like piz
  10. This isn't perfect

    This stuff didn't break me out which is a pretty big deal since just about everything does. I did see a bit of difference in the morning, such as pimples that were drying up and redness going away. I also noticed my skin seemed to be pretty soft, also making the texture of my skin nicer. This isn't the best mask, but my boyfriend did say it made my face smell good. You only need to put it on for 5-10 minutes which is also nice, but honestly I prefer my honey mask over anything I have tried yet.
  11. Worked Surprising Well

    I was pretty skeptical about this stuff but after getting plain Greek yogurt and applying to my face for about 10-15 minutes seemed to really even out my skin tone and helped a lot of red/dark marks fade. It made my skin feel tight as it started to dry which I really didn't see coming. I didn't see too much of a difference for my active pimples , but it did seem to leave my face with a gentle glow the next day. All in all, it's supposed to be very nutritious for your skin. Try it!!
  12. This stuff is ok

    I tried it a couple times. It really dries out your skin so you need to find a good moisturizer to put on afterwards. I usually mix it with half Bragg's Apple Cider Vinegar and tap water. The day after your skin looks pretty amazing, but I noticed a couple days after my skin began to break out in tiny pimples that took about a week to go away. Possibly my skin was purging but I don't really know for sure. It's nice once in awhile but I probably won't be doing it every week.
  13. understatement

    It's alright.

    It's alright.

    Kind of treats acne expensive Might have messed up my hormones I started taking this after having an awful breakout after stopping the birth control pill. It's been almost a year that I have been taking saw palmetto and although my face isn't nearly as bad as it used to be, it's still not as great as it was when I was on the pill. Overall, it was ok, but I'm probably going to go back on the birth control pill. It didn't do much for my breast tissue, either. All in all, I had high hopes but I pro

    Great stuff!

    Great stuff!

    makes skin soft without becoming too oily smells good, tastes good, makes redness go away helps dark spots and damaged skin from acne products sticky, messy, can be hard to wash off expensive Now, I haven't used this for very long, only tried it once. From all the cleaning and picking away, my skin was rough and horrible. It felt damaged, it looked damaged. It was not cool. I wanted to try something natural that would help my skin glow and nourish it at the same time. I went to Whole Foods and
  15. Pretty good

    lasts forever makes skin pretty helps fight comedonal acne doesn't help with blackheads doesn't clean out large pores as well as I thought it would a bit on the expensive side This stuff is going to last me forever. It makes my skin look really nice, and is helping out my comedonal acne. I have light/moderate acne and I'm turning 20 in a week. I'm scared it might be drying so I use cetaphil face wash prior rather than an acne wash. I've only been using it at night but might start in the morning
