  1. Day #14 I broke out a lot this week, particularly on my chin and in the middle of my jawline which I haven’t had before. My face has calmed down in the past two days, and looked a lot better this morning (possibly because I used the original scrub on my face last night?). I’ve been scrubbing every second day now that I think my face can tolerate it, and I would say my forehead and nose are looking smoother. I alternate between the original scrub and the face scrub. I’ve also started us
  2. Day #7 This week my skin calmed down for a few days and then I had a breakout of a few big blind pimples. I would say my chin was worse than usual this week, but I'm guessing this is the initial breakout, and the fact that I'm using scrubs on my face when I haven't for a few years. The left side of my jawline has started to clear up, and while the right side is still broken out, it's calmer and less red than last week. I don't know if this is the skincare though, because my jawline breaks out
  3. First impressions of Frank Body Original Coffee Scrub - This stuff is AMAZING. My skin has never been so soft and smooth than after using this. Frank says to wet your skin, rub the scrub all over your body (including your face), and then leave on for 5-10 minutes to let everything absorb. My skin stayed noticeably more smooth/soft for 2-3 days after using it, and even my boyfriend noticed! The smell is really yummy too, though I didn't notice the smell too much after I'd washed it off. Frank re
  4. I’ve decided to start a log because I’m starting a new skincare regime, and I want to see if it’s going to make any difference to my acne. I’ve had mild acne for years, basically just hormonal acne on my chin. Since I stopped taking the pill nearly six months ago, I’ve also had mild/moderate acne on my cheeks and jawline (which I’ve never had before), mild acne on my forehead and upper back, and the acne on my chin is worse than it was. I was on and off the pill for seven years. My skin was near

    Yasmin Day #75

    My skin has been so-so the past month. I have some days when I have no actives which is always nice, but I'm still having breakouts too. My back is pretty much clear, I just have some red marks left over. My chest has one medium red mark on it at the moment and some smaller ones. My neck is still breaking out, but healing more quickly. I broke out with 4-5 painful spots under my chin this week which is more than usual. My forehead, cheeks and nose area are clear 99% of the time, but that

    No Sugar Group!

    Hey! I'm still doing no sugar, no dairy, no caffeine, though I guess about sugar free 95% of the time and dairy/caffeine free like 99% of the time. I love food too much to say no to a piece of cake every now and again I still eat fruit though, that's one thing I couldn't do without. I've started drinking green smoothies 5-6 times a week so I'm eating more fruit now than I ever have. I've noticed I don't really crave sugary foods anymore though, which is nice seeing I used to eat some form

    Coming Off Yaz... Please Help!

    I'd have to disagree about weaning off BC. I came off Yaz and did so much research about it, and I didn't really find much evidence that weaning yourself off would make a difference. I found lots of posts from women who weaned themselves off for 8 months+ and still broke out, so in the end I decided I'd rather get the breakout now and get it over with than spend 8 months weaning myself off only to breakout anyway. I kept my breakouts pretty under control when I came off Yaz, in fact my skin

    Yasmin Day #31

    My chest is almost clear. My back is better with very few spots. My neck is better but still breaking out a bit. My cheeks are clear. The breakouts on my chin were a tiny bit less than usual and less painful this week. I've had a few spots pop up along my jawline which I usually never got so I'm guessing these are hormonal. I've had a few small spots around my mouth. My nose still has blackheads but is really smooth. My chin and around my mouth are still my problem areas.

    Yasmin Day #16

    So since my last breakout I've pretty much been clear on my face, which was so nice! But then... I got extremely stressed about an exam and ate really badly for two days (ridiculous amounts of chocolate and some dairy, when I usually have none), which I think has brought on the breakout I'm having now. I've got about 3 active whiteheads and 5 pimples forming on my chin/jawline, and two forming on my forehead. I've also noticed since starting Yasmin I've had these really small red pimples, al

    Botani! All natural ingredients and the only thing I use now.

    Had To Take Plan B - Freaking Out

    This happened to me around three weeks ago. We were using a condom but it broke. I took Plan B about 10 hours later. I have to say I did experience a small break out (maybe like 5 or 6 spots on my chin), but it was nothing major and cleared within the first week. It also made me extremely tired for a couple of days, kinda like I had the flu. I was panicking too after what I read online, I'd suggest you don't read it anymore. If you think about it, how many women worldwide take Plan B everyda

    Yasmin Day #6

    Good to hear other people have gone through the same thing! I think so too, my chin has healed nicely and I haven't broken out since so hopefully my skin will have some time to calm down before/if I breakout again. Thanks

    Quick Cover Up?

    thanks! I'm not sure if they sell botani in the US, I'll check it out. I need a finishing powder too, so I'll try the one you recommended. I usually use the meow cosmetics one, but it makes me itchy sometimes. Great, let me know how you find it! I've found they're really generous with their samples too

    Quick Cover Up?

    I'm probably 95% happy with it. It covers red marks really well, and I have large pores/blackheads on my nose that it covers really well too. I don't use primer with mine either, just a moisturiser about 10-15 minutes before. The only problem is that it can get a touch cakey if you try and put too much on, so I do a few light layers to build it up. Great, thanks. I will try it since they have sample sizes, and the ingredients look really good. Unfortunately, the only perfect mineral foundation
