  1. It's been a long time since I've posted here as Dan's system had been keeping me clear. I've recently started to get a cyst or two around my period for the past 3-4 months. I've got thyroid issues I'm trying to control, so I think that's is what is causing it. Anywho...I got the start of a cyst last night between my lip and chin on the right side. Was swollen pretty good and tender to the touch. Not red yet or to a head..just starting. Went to bed last night and woke up to it moving part
  2. Hi, I had to resort to a second round several years after my first. I was around 25 when I took it the first time and may have been 30ish the second. It was way harder on me the second time around. Basically the first time the only major side effect was the dryness of EVERYTHING. The second time I had that plus; horrible constipation, horrible lower back pain and my hair was breaking. I decided the side effects weren't worth it the second time and quit taking it before I was finished with
  3. I haven't finished reading all of the replies, but Superfly, you know not what you speak. I was on Accutane twice and re-educating myself about it for a possible third go when I lucked upon this site. Accutane is not a miracle cure all as some on here believe it to be. My first time on it cleared my acne for about 4 yrs or so and the second less time. Anyone who considers it should read everything they can about the possible side effects. To answer this posters original question. I did not
  4. I had been using various prescriptions products through the years all the way to accutane. Right before CSR I was on clindamycin(sp?) and it was not working. I've been on the CSR for a little over 7 months now and am very pleased. I've only had a couple of minor breakouts since my acne has been under control with CSR and I know the reasons that I had them. I either forgot to use my bp twice a day or it was near my period. Ditch the prescriptions and give CSR a good try. You will probably b
  5. Mostly a sample of Oil of Olay with spf 15 and then once or twice Melaluca spf 30.
  6. I worry about the same thing. I love getting those little kisses, but I just try to limit them now. All you cat people, quit hatin'!
  7. I just got back from vacation and I always dread putting sunscreen on my face because I break out for days following...no matter the brand. Anywho, I've been on the CSR since the end of December and kept it up throughout my vacation with the exception of one night I had too much to drink. I washed my face but fell asleep before I could finish. My face didn't break out once! Yipee! I'll be more likely to use sunscreen knowing it won't break me out.
  8. I was on the same to things you are. I just stopped the Differin and Clindagel (sp?) one day and immediately started the CSR. I started with about a quarter finger and worked my way up to half. I've dropped back down due to getting it in my eyes at night. (I'm a face sleeper ) I've had great success with the CSR and highly recommend. Good luck and keep us posted!
  9. Everything imaginable with my eyes...more wrinkles first. Then I put eye cream on, but it made the bp migrate to my eyes even though I wasn't close to my eyes with it. So now I stay extra far away from my eyes and use Curel lotion around my eyes right after washing so it soaks in during the 10 minute wait before bp. It's absolutely crazy to have wrinkles and acne!
  10. Morning and night: cetaphil cleanser wait 10 minutes Dan's bp gel wait 10 minutes cetaphil moisterizer 2 pumps
  11. Very basic. Morning and night... Cetaphil cleanser rinse (not rub) with tepid water 10 minutes Dan's CSR gel (I can't use a fingerful, I had that awful eye thing...use about 1/4 finger) 10 minutes Cetaphil moisterizer 2 pumps In the mornings in the shower I use a damp washcloth to exfoliate the dry flakes away. thats it!
  12. I just posted on the CSR forum that I no longer get blackheads around my mouth since I started the CSR at the end of December. You all should try it.
  13. I just wanted to give some of you some hope that may just be starting the regimen. I had moderate to severe acne at times with cysts and terrible blackheads around my lips. I really hated those blackheads! I've been on CSR since right after Christmas and my pores are small and no blackheads! I have about 1-2 pimples a month around my cycle and that's it so far. I hope it continues. One problem I did have was getting the bp too close to my eyes. I have stopped using quite as much bp and st

  15. I haven't used it while on the CSR, but I used to use it on my face in the drier winter months. At that time I was pretty clear and I didn't have any issues with it. This winter is the first in several years I haven't used it. I opted to stick with Cetiphil lotion and try the CSR and I'm very happy I did. I don't know if that helps. I understand your decision as I am reluctant to change anything not that I have my skin clear!
