  1. Hey Guys Yes I have to agree with this regimen as well. I was using C/C Blackhead Clearing Scrub and then 2.5% BP from Kaiser Permanente (and if you live in California, I STRONGLY recommend it, as it's $4.95 a bottle and much more convenient to go to their pharmacy to buy it then to wait on it being shipped to you) for the 'Acne Cure' book's regimen. I always keep my BP in the refrigerator and rub a piece of ice on my face after using the C/C wash so that it's cool to the touch (that was the b
  2. oh wait...Intense Pulse Light therapy! my bad. sorry!
  3. hey lulu00 did you go for your second treatment yet? how did it go? are you seeing improvement? i'm thinking about smoothbeam myself, but am a little nervous after reading some of the boards.
  4. hey everybody acne.org is a great database for smoothbeam info, but the majority of it seems to be 6-9 months ago, and not much as of late. now, i've read A TON about this on here, and i've got to admit, it's pretty mixed. Some people say it's a waste of time, while others say it's helped them -- whether it be active acne, scars, or both -- tremendously. being someone that always has hope, i wonder if the people that said this didn't work had bad experiences with practitioners who di
  5. hey guys i'm reading your threads with great interest as I'm considering doing this myself. But one piece of info that no one has mentioned: price! Would anyone please state a ballpark figure so I know if this is financially feasible or not? thanks owl
  6. Hey everybody In Time Magazine this week there was an article about a potential problem with Fish Oil. I got the internet blurb version of the article and I'll post it here: Sales of fish-oil supplements have boomed as evidence of the health benefits of omega-3 fatty acids has mounted. But how safe are those supplements? The same pollutants that contaminate fish  including mercury, dioxins, DDT and PCBs  can also contaminate the fish oils made from them. The latest troubling n
  7. actually the crisis is not quite over. herpes outbreaks go through a cycle that eventually ends in the lesion crusting over and going away. You've got herpes dude. You better get tested before you have sex again.
  8. (whew! finally read through this whole thread. good stuff!) I'll chime in with my two cents on the last post. I've heard around the boards of people just doing the cetaphil thing and improving their acne, but I can't help but think that Gamer's got so many other things he's doing that they must have an effect as well... I also want to say that I was checking on your products Gamer and the toner you recommend contains SD ALCOHOL 40, which is very irritating to the skin (I think it's a 5 on t
  9. what does CVS stand for? Is it in the U.S.?
  10. i've been looking everywhere for that Fruit of the Earth Aloe and can't find it. is there a certain store that carries it?
  11. i'm probably in the same situation as you: skin not too bad right now, but not good enough. i've heard about epiclear on the radio, and am interested to see how it works for you. good luck and keep us posted! owl
  12. did you guys know that the proactiv bp lotion has the comodegenic combo of Cetearyl Alcohol + Ceteareth 20? I just found that out after doing a little research. time to look for a new bp...
  13. Hey y'all. I bought this a week or two ago but I'm worried to try a completely new product. Has anyone else tried this one? I checked out the zerozits.com 'acne detective' website to see about its ingredients, and although about half the ingredients were a "2," nothing was higher. It's ingredients: Purified Water Green Tea Extract Stearic Acid Alpha Lipoic Acid (1%) Allantoin Panthenol Caprylic Triglyceride Jojoba Oil Cetyl Alcohol Polysorbate-20 Glyceryl Stearate and PEG-10
  14. thanks for the info! I'm gonna try one more store here and if they don't have it, i'll go with yours.
