  1. Just a heads up, I've accidentally found the first product with 3% EGCG: the Ordinary Caffeine + egcg. I've used it for undereyes but recently asked the company about the concentration of EGCG. I might go ahead and try applying it all over the face. Or at least half to see what happens. Though I'm not sure about of topical effects of 5% caffeine..
  2. Thanks! Appreciate the advice, I've been more careful & focused on scarred areas since then.
  3. Has anyone else got tiny blood spots / cherry angiomas after using the Derminator? They popped up a few months ago after using it on my forehead and still haven't faded. I'll probably try v-beam after a year or two of treatment to get rid of them
  4. Nah, but I avoid nostrils/creases and focus on t-zone either way.
  5. Hey all, I just wanted to share the best mattifying topicals I've used so far. 1) A bit weird, but Monistat Anti Chaf Gel from Amazon. Cheaps, work well. 2) Shiseido Senka SPF 50 gel (in BLUE bottle). Less mattifying than #1, but more natural look. Also more useful since it's sunscreen and no white cast. I use it daily now.
  6. I found quite a few places mentioned by people, though the solutions are really high in ethanol/alcohol. Might be worth formulating a gentler DIY version with the powder they're selling instead if it works: https:// anageninc. com/ru58841-solution-50ml.html https:// www.chemyo.com /ru58841-solution.html
  7. Have you looked into RU58841 at all? (https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/7625751 & https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/9449168) Seems widely available in a topical solution and used by people regrowing their hair - hrmm..
  8. Finally something promising. Huh.. after some Googling, this popped up: medchemexpress . com / Olumacostat_glasaretil.html (and some others like this site). I'm not sure how legit it is. And perhaps not worth being a guinea pig. Thoughts? EDIT: Nevermind, at the 7.5% concentrations from the study - that would be one very expensive experiment.
  9. I wouldn't recommend going too deep on bony areas, I -think- it caused two tiny blood spots on the side of my forehead when I went too deep. So I plan on just doing the center with 0.5mm or so.
  10. Hey OilyOneKanobe, Have you tried super low dose accutane or "photodynamic therapy (PDT)"? I'm in Thailand right now and considering either one. The second one sounds kinda interesting - albeit without the possible bad systemic side effects - it's supposed to kill/shrink sebaceous glands.
  11. Lol, detox. Try Curology, it's $20/month for real prescription acne cream that actually works. I'm been on it for a few months now Or you can at least start with 2% salicylic acid (Stridex wipes/gel) to clear up those blackheads
  12. Has anyone tried a product "UNT Pore Minissima"? Apparently it contains "Sebaryl® FL LS 9088" and "Panadoxine P", a form of Vitamin B6. I'm thinking about testing this.. http://www.kyowa-pharma.co.jp/english/news/pdf/20111021.pdf 1. Vitamin B6 is essential for skin balance and health. 2. Panadoxine P has superior photostability and thermostability over native vitamin B6 in both skin care and hair care formulations. 3. Panadoxine P converts to vitamin B6 in the skin providing essential ingr
  13. Hey, I haven't found anything to actually "fix" it, however oc-8 gel or "Biore UV Perfect Milk SPF 50" both work to minimize shine/oil for a while. The latter is like a mattifying spf cream.
