  1. I had that problem too... flakiness and tightness and redness. I partly blame the Cetaphil, actually. It made my skin feel burnt and oily... really gross! But I'd say to give the jojoba oil a good week or so to really start taking care of those flakes. And maybe try the Moisturel moisturizer, I've been using that for a good couple weeks now and I love it! Moisturizes and doesn't leave my skin oily! The Lac Hydrin Five might be a little too harsh for your skin if it's irritated already.
  2. Okay, so not much to report... My skin's still breaking out, but at least the flakes are completely gone. I think the jojoba oil and Moisturel are working very well in tandem. ...I'm going on a trip this weekend and bringing everything with me! All my cleaning and maintenance supplies. My friends are going to think I'm nuts, but oh well.
  3. Okay, so the flakes are now gone. A few days of very very little BP and a ton of jojoba oil and Moisturel seems to have done the trick. Starting today, I put a tiny bit more BP on. Oh, and I found that I really like the Moisturel! It really does hydrate well, and it's not half so greasy as the Cetaphil. So, yeah. Not a whole lot of progress acne-wise, but at least the flakes are gone. That's enough for me to celebrate at the moment.
  4. Thanks everybody. I really appreciate the help. I've already stopped using so much BP, and I'll definitely skip the next application and just use a ton of moisturizer. And then just keep using tiny bits of BP until I'm sure my skin's not going to freak out again. Might try the steam thing too. Though I think the shower filter's going to be a no-go... I'm currently renting just a room in a house and I don't think I should be making any changes in the bathroom hardware, since none of it be
  5. Fulfillment Center... BWAHAHA! Whew, I needed a laugh. Thanks for changing it! Even though it does sound more like porn now!
  6. I don't know what to do... my face looks like it freaking has dandruff alllll over it. I've been doing the CSR for at least two and a half weeks, and I was using 10% BP before I started the CSR using Dan's 2.5%, so my skin shouldn't be hardening worse with a lower concentration of BP, should it?! I'm using jojoba oil every day, lots of it, both just after I wash my face with Dan's cleanser and mixed in with my Moisturel moisturizer. It's helped with the tightness, but the FLAKES! At night
  7. The flakes... the FLAKES. They're driving me crazy. I don't know what to do. This morning I was late to work because I was desperately trying to make them go away! But no... my face just looks worse! It's like I have dandruff... all over my face. Makes me want to cry and go hide in a hole somewhere. I thought the jojoba oil was helping, and it definitely did help with the tightness, and the areas I applied it to a lot a few days ago are pretty un-flaky. But it's like my whole face is fla
  8. The jojoba oil really is good stuff. I've still got some flaking going on, though. It did heal quite a bit of the dryness, and my skin doesn't feel like it's about to rip apart every time I smile or talk, so that's good! Starting last night, I decided to use the jojoba oil in conjunction with a good moisturizer. I picked up some Moisturel, since Brandy reccommended it, so we'll see how things go now! My skin does seem to be clearing somewhat... or maybe it's just that the new blemishe
  9. It's a moisturizer with AHA... 5% lactic acid. If you're just starting out with the AHA, I'd suggest using it just once a day to start out with, instead of twice... I did that, and managed to dry myself out pretty good. Since I started using the Lac-Hydrin Five, though, my face does look and feel smoother.
  10. I was using the Cetaphil for about a week, too, and it did the same thing to me! My skin was all irritated and greasy on top of it. I'd say try something different! I tried the Lac-Hydrin Five twice a day, but that ended up making me peel... Brandy suggested using Moisturel instead, and she seems very trustworthy, so perhaps try that? Jojoba oil is also good stuff. It stopped my peeling and made my face feel normal again.
  11. Hello again, Goldthie! Okay, so, an update! I'm loving the jojoba oil. Really and truly, it's helped a lot with the flaking and dryness. I've been spreading about three drops on my face after my shower, and adding a drop or two to my moisturizer, and then spreading a little more on the driest areas, and it's great! My skin feels normal again. And it doesn't feel oily, either, as long as I don't use too much. I do have a few more spots, but nothing hideously bad, and I'm pretty sure i
  12. Thanks for the advice. The jojoba oil actually seems to be working pretty well, though I might try the Moisturel if I can find it. It doesn't leave your skin greasy at all, does it?
  13. Ooh, now I'm really excited to get my samples of the Everyday Minerals! I'm using the Physician's Formula mineral powder at the moment and it's not bad... just wish it were better. And I used a few drops of the jojoba oil on my face after my shower tonight! (And in my hair too, since the bottle said it was good for it... worked some in right before I shampooed, and now my hair feels really soft and clean!) My face actually feels normal again, no more tightness. And it's not hideously
  14. Hello, hello! Me again! So I've been using the Lac-Hydrin Five twice daily after applying the BP for about four days... and it's too much for my face to take. I'm all dry and flaky around my mouth and in a couple other spots. So now I'm cutting down my Lac-Hydrin Five usage to once daily. I'm not giving up on it! It really has helped improve my skin tone and cut down on my oiliness. (Albeit, a bit too much!) Maybe less BP in certain areas will also help. And I got some jojoba oil today
  15. Yargh, you're right! Today I'm all flaky. That makes me so sad, 'cause I was loving how un-oily the LH5 was keeping me. I guess it was a little too drying! I'm thinking twice daily with the alpha hydroxy is a bad idea for my skin. I also am using a lot less BP around my mouth now. siiigh Oh, well! Like you said, it'll take some time and experimentation to figure out what works for us. I picked up some jojoba oil today! Found it at Trader Joe's actually, Desert Essence brand, 100%
