  1. Okay, so I've battled acne my entire life. I'm 41, first few bouts with acne were in high school. Back then, I went to the family doc, he said use Phostex soap (it was just soap with BP in it) and wham, it was gone. College, it came back, and the soap didn't work. Nothing worked. My mom took me to the doc and they prescribed accutane. Oh my goodness, so dry, like lips and face cracking dry. But it worked. But then it came back. I tried accupuncture, chinese medicine (we're asian) nothing worke
  2. I've resigned myself that the new bottles are here to stay. I do the morning regimen at work, so discreetness is key. When I travel I go buy those little bottles at the local drugstore where you fill up your fav shampoo/conditioner (yeah I picked that up from an ex-gf). I'll just use that. They're like a buck or two, and are a one-time investment.
  3. I do miss the old botles for now. I do my morning regimen at work (because I am forever late for work, my start time shifted from 9 to 9:30 unofficially because that's when I get in ) and the old bottle fit nice in my pocket. The new one looks like I'm very happy to see someone.
  4. Yeah I'm a capitalist pig, so make that money Dan. There is nothing wrong with making a living while providing a very useful service/product to others. If it wasn't profitable, we would be deprived!
  5. I have used this one on and off for years. Recently, since starting the regimen, I use it when my flakes are not bad. And when I have to use Eucerin Skin Renewal (I only have a few days left of my stash ) I put this on top of it, when going out clubbing or something, so as to not look so damn greasy. Since I have but a few days left of the Eucerin, I am ordering Lac Hydrin 5.
  6. Can you recommend a comedone extractor? I have a couple of milia as well, and for the life of me tore my skin up trying to get rid of it.
  7. Neutrogena On the Spot, it's 2.5% just like the Gel. NOTS actually works better for me then the Acne Gel for some reason. Too bad it is expensive and leaves a white film.
  8. It is also available at drugstore.com and a lot of other online pharms. I emailed them to ask if this could be used on the face, but it I think it can, it has been rated here: http://www.acne.org/rate_item.php?item_id=289 I emailed the makers of AmLactin to ask their ingredient list, and whether this could/should be used on the face, this is their response: 1. AMLACTIN 12% Lotion can be used on the face twice daily; however, caution must be used to avoid contact with the lips, mouth

  10. Hey do you guys think Lactic peels are better or to use a lower power lactic acid solution of some sort every day, such as a 5% solution? Does such a thing even exist? I used to use lactic peels, but haven't since I started the regimen and have been wanting to start it again, since the regimen keeps me somewhat clear then I break out, clear up, break out. Each cycle lasting a week give or take. It's very frustrating.
  11. http://www.drugstore.com/products/prod.asp...BUY-PLST-0-SRCH order several at a time.
  12. just on the problem areas. i just put it on my cheeks and chin. nothing on my forehead. hardly ever get a zit there so why waste the bp?
  13. yup, it's normal. give it a couple weeks, it will go away. down right embarassing at first, but it's worth it. it does go away. after about two weeks, go get eucerin daily SKIN renewal. it leaves my face a tiny bit oily, but gets rid of all flaking.
