  1. Hey there! Well, I'm sorry to hear about all the crap your dealing with right now I LOVED PC BHA! Loved loved loved it! I started with the 1 % and quickly moved to 2% it didn't dry me out at all and normally I have major issues with SA. One thing I think helped a lot too is I got some of the samples of her BP and used that on problem areas it really wiped out any zits that were forming. I hope it works for you and you don't have to deal with Tane. Have a great time in the Yucatan again! I'm je
  2. Hi all thanks as always for checking in on me Eloise. I'm 15 weeks today and everything is going really well. I had an ultra sound at around 9 weeks and got to see my little baby...looked more like a shrimp than a baby at that time. My morning sickness got pretty rough for a while there, throwing up 3-4 times a night! Yeah no "morning" sickness just evening and night sickness. It's just now going away, I'm down to about once a week now. I get my big ultra sound on Sept 6th and would be able t
  3. Eloise, go read my log I'm definitley not on the Retin A any more!
  4. Queen where are you? I know I've been MIA for a while.....truthfully I just haven't been thinking about my skin which I guess is a good thing! Means it must not be too bad. Hope all is well with you:)
  5. Hi! Congrats on being made a mod I missed a lot I see. I'm still loving that salt water comrpess on any stubborn zits I may get. I'm feeling okay so far.....when my stomach gets empty I get sick and I'm tired but other than that no complaints:D thanks for stopping by my log and asking.
  6. Hello my friend:) long time no talk. I'm sorry to hear you were having some issues with your skin again. It sounds like you might have figured it all out. I can relate to skin changing with the seasons....mine is dry and oily right now of there might be other reasons for that too;)
  7. Where is Bobbi? hehee! It has been a loooooong time hu? Face wise everything has been great! Still using the Paula's Choice stuff. And I started using this supplement about 3 months ago. It's called Vitex or Chaste Berry it's supposed to regulate hormones and claims to clear skin also. Between that and the BHA's I've been about 99% clear for about 2.5 months..........and then I found out some big news ..........................................................................................
  8. Queen- LOVE IT Just think how great it is for your skin to not see sunshine for 6 months out of the year I'm feeling you with the ghost like look....
  9. Hi, just checking out your log Frist of all I just want to say congratulations on quitting smoking! That's probably the best decision you could make for your skin. My Mom smoked for probably 30 years and you can definitley see the effects of againg from it. I think Queens suggestion of washing the Trentinoin off to start is a good one. I had the worst experience with Retin A and my skin literally falling off. My skin never looked worse than when I was using it too much and too often. So take
  10. gimansta-I got the gel. The cleanser makes me a little tight feeling when I use it to jessfoliate but not with regular washing and no it does not foam. It's pretty creamy. I'm telling you the salt water compress is the best! Everything is still going good with the BHA's. I'm getting a bit of purging, but not nasty like. Just the hard little plugs coming out. I'm pretty surprised it's not drying my skin out more than it is. Most nights I forget or fall asleep before I moisturize and I've had ver
  11. Hi Willow, I'm glad your chin is finally clearing up. That is so great what your Mom said about your skin! That must have thrilled you to no end. If I remember correctly your Mom was staying with you through the really bad time you were having so she has seen you at your worst and now to have her notice such a difference is so great. I wanted to let you know how great the salt water compress worked on my papule that I had....I soaked a cotton ball in it & left it on for about 20 minutes an
  12. First of all I have to give props to Queen and Willow! I love you guys Queen-got my Paula's Choice BHA's on Friday. Even though I was scared to use SA I did and so far so...great! I can see already that it's improving texture, clearing out pores and the few redmarks I had are fading quick! That is all from the 1%! Willow-I tried the salt water compress on my stupid papule and it came to a head. Not a big head but I was able to at least relieve some of the pressure. I was also getting one be
  13. Hey Queen just had to drop by and tell you thanks for introducing me to the BHA's. They are working great so far. Glad your trip went good except for the minor skin problems. I'm sure if people told you that you looked great you did Most people just don't say anything, at least that's how I am, hahaha. Thanks again
  14. Queen- wow I thought your house was sold already. Well I hope it goes through and it's off your hands soon. I hope you had a good time in Ca too. I'm sure it is sad to see your house now, I know I would miss a beautiful house like that myself. Sounds like you've got a huge project ahead of you also. Sounds like lots of fun:) I took your advice and ordered samples of the 1% and 2% also so samples of cleanser. Her prices are so reasonable! I'm shocked at how cheap everything is. T Jay- hi there
  15. Sounds right on par with what my skin looked/felt like on SA so you convinced me Queen! I'm off to shop
  16. Hi Queen, good to see your doing so good. Glad you escaped the stomach flu.....sorry you had to take care of everyone. When you used SA before what kinds of problems did you have? I want to get the Paula's choice BHA but I'm a little scared. SA and me do not agree.
  17. Thanks Queen, it makes me feel better to hear not everyone gets knocked up (haha) on their first try. I have been thinking about a little get away, it will have to be after snowmobiling. New kitchens are great!! Well, I think they/it will be great. Mine is still far from done. We haven't even ordered cabinets yet. My biggest problem is worrying about making a wrong choice, not liking it later. When will you start your project? I got my new moisturizer......PH Advantage. I rubbed some on my han
  18. Hey girl That peeling is what will get rid of those pockmarks so unfortunatly it's a necessary evil Don't blame you for being paranoid though and peeling skin is no fun. I can't wait to hear about your facial. I hope it goes great for you. How is school going? T Jay- I'm sure Eloise won't mind me hijacking her log for a minute incase you come back to see if I replied here. It is frustrating knowing there are so many things you can't use while trying and during pregnancy and breast feeding if
  19. Eloise-Thanks for the clarification. So I had a nice nodular lesion I'm not sure if I've ever had a cyst then. No big news yet ****sigh**** I've said it before here and I'll say it again---when I want something I want it NOW! Well things just aren't working out that way. I'm a little frustrated and to be truthful, worried. I know it can take the average couple up to year to get pregnant but common! I'm trying not to dwell on it. Brent keeps saying "I thought we were just letting it happen, no
  20. Hi Willow just checking in. Sorry your chin is still so out of control. I hope you get it all figured out.
  21. Salt compress....good to know. I'll have to try it sometime. The last time I had one of those hard little bumps under my skin (it was right between my eyes!) it would come and go for a couple months. Never came to a head or anything.....when it was gone it was still there, you could feel it under the skin but it wasn't visible....then it finally came to surface enough that I could pop it. Now I have one on my chin
  22. Willow-that's me no patience. I want the stuff gone now!! It's bad enough we have to worry about covering our faces w/ makeup, let alone having to worry about what clothes will be acceptable so as to not show any chest zits grrrr! Face is ok....I got my face brush today. It's soooo soft I'm not sure if it will do any good. We shall see. I will report my findings later. I have two more I can order if it doesn't work out. One from Sephora ( ) and one from Diana Yvonne.
  23. Hi, how were your holidays? Sorry you've got a few breakouts but it sounds like you've got it all under control. Glad the hyperpigmentation is going away sorry about the othre scars. It might just take more time with them. I don't know anything about Fraxel but hey I'm really bored so maybe I'll do some research for you Fraxel.com there are real patient stories and a photo gallery HTH
  24. Hi I'm no expert (obviously) but I would say you are sensitive to strong retinoids. Sorry you have some zits from hell. Hopefully now that your off the stronger retinoid and switching things around they/it will go away for good. That stupid cyst thing I hd on my chin is gone but...I can still feel a lump under the skin so I know I'll be seeing a second appearance, blechh.
  25. Queen-The lactic acid sounds great. I've been looking for an acid myself. I was thinking of a glycolic peel since gylcolic has been working so well. I might have to give the lactic a try though. That's a bummer about the big scab. I can't offer any great advice since it's not really in a spot you can hide. I hope it's at least not so noticeable by tomorrow. Have a great time at Cats. I bet it was nice to be "home" for the holidays this year.....no traveling.
