    Imagining how easy life would be to just have clear skin...
  1. My eyes were getting quite irritated by the jojoba oil when I first started using it. I've become more cautious when applying the jojoba and it seems to be working. Make sure to avoid applying it to the area above and between your eyebrows. I think when you put it on your lower forehead it slowly makes its way down into your eyes throughout the day. I noticed my eyes wouldn't be irritated until mid-afternoon even though I had applied it early in the AM. I don't think the brand will make t
  2. I agree with Snowman, shaving your back is not a smart thing to do. I don't have back hair, but anybody knows shaving hair only makes it grow back thicker. I wouldn't recommend that Oxy BP bar, that product made me very irritated and itchy. Either try Head and Shoulders or try Dan's Cleanser.
  3. I feel your pain, but I think your expectation to have clear skin in 2 weeks is a bit unrealistic. I'd say any treatment is probably going to take at least a few months to see solid results. I would recommend trying Head and Shoulders, it seems to really work for some people. I would caution you to be careful and start slow with any new treatment to avoid irritation and other setbacks. Try the Head and Shoulders once a day in the shower and wash it off completely to avoid overdrying and irri
  4. I used to get the occasional large pimple on my neck, but there would never be more than 1 or 2 at a time. I use Fruit of the Earth Aloe Vera Gel and jojoba oil on my neck and that seems to work pretty well. After showering, I apply 4-5 drops of jojoba to my palm and then squeeze out a fingers worth of aloe vera and mix the two and gently apply to my neck. This has kept my neck looking pretty good, and I recommend it to others to try. Good Luck.
  5. Looking forward to the moisturizer. Thanks again Dan, you are providing an invaluable service to the many acne sufferers out there. Your willingness to listen and respond to your customers is very refreshing. Keep up the good work.
  6. I personally prefer the Lac Hydrin 5. It can be a little greasy if you use too much, but it seems to do a better job of preventing flakes than the Complex 15 ever did. I also like that the Lac Hydrin 5 has Lactic Acid.
  7. It isn't specifically for after-shave, but it has many purposes. The bottle says it can be used as a shaving gel, on sunburns, blemishes, or any other kind of skin irritation. I use the Fruit of the Earth brand because its easy to find.
  8. I used to get the occassional gross pimple on my neck, so I tried gently applying a finger-sized amount of aloe vera gel to my entire neck after showering in the morning and night. This has kept me quite clear, but if a zit does pop up, it will go away after just a day or two. Give the aloe a try, its pretty cheap ($3 for a tube) and might just work for ya.
  9. Try out some jojoba oil. I was having a really tough time with flakey skin, so I gave it a shot. After just a few days, my skin was soft and looking good. I highly recommend jojoba oil for flakey skin. Good Luck...
  10. I don't think they neutralize eachother, but I've also been wondering about aloe's effectiveness. I used to apply it at night after the BP (instead of moisturizer), but I was still getting breakouts. Now, I just apply jojoba oil and Lac Hydrin 5 instead, and am almost completely clear (maybe 1 or 2 small pimples at a time). The few pimples that I do get generally heal in just 1 or 2 days. I wanted to keep using the aloe, because it is supposedly loaded with vitamins and minerals, but I'm gon
