  1. I use Burts Bees Color Keeper Conditioner with Green Tea and Fennel Seed along with their More Moisture Shampoo with Raspberry and Brazil Nut. I really like the performance of these products on my colored-treated hair, they smell good, and they don't leave a residue on my scalp.
  2. I have used a cleanse in herbal capsule form for about 6 weeks which has shown excellent results!
  3. My experience with the Blue Peel: After I had it done and went though the "down" time, the results were very impressive. The results were temporary, lasting almost a year and a half. I used the Obagi products faithfully, but then I gradually started breaking out again. Just be aware that 1) it is expensive. Seven years ago, it costed me $500 for two layers. The Obagi products required for preparation of Blue Peel and after the Blue Peel total in the hundreds. 2) there is about 4 days of "down"
  4. A note about egg whites: A few pages back, it was suggested to use the white directly from the egg as opposed to the whites in the carton at the grocery store. But I have been using the whites from the carton and getting the same quality results. The carton is so much easier because I go through egg whites quickly. There are no additives in the brand I use. It just says 100% egg whites on the side.
  5. I have had microdermabrasion done, and I could tell a difference with my scars on the first treatment. I would go back for more. But it takes several treatments to really get results. It is not cheap. I paid $75 for one 30-minute treatment. That was not including the tip. I found a beauty school in my area where students practice on people who come to school's "practice" spa. The cost is a lot less than a regular spa. Microdermabrasion is only $60, and tipping is not permitted. I haven't tri
  6. Hey Surf Dude, The ACV might hurt too much because the skin is too raw from breakouts. It might need to be diluted for some people so they can handle it when applied to the skin. That's what "handle it" means. Personally, I use full strength ACV for prevention and an occasional zit. Back when I had lots of breakouts, ACV really helped dry it all up. I don't know if ACV would react with your other topical med, though.
  7. I really enjoy Everyday Minerals! It works great, and I was very impressed with their method of ordering! Granted, it's hard to choose your colors over the internet, but I like that they give you 6 free samples of your choice. If those don't work, they are returnable one time. I finally found colors that worked for me. This stuff does not make my pores look huge, keeps my skin from breaking out, and gives great coverage to red spots. I especially like the balancing dust -- it seals the deal ar

  9. Hey everyone, This regiment has worked very well for me since I first posted in this thread. I used it just this morning. There were a few times when I did break out minimally. I discovered it had to do with: a) mineral makeup which contained bismouth, and b) a dirty makeup brush. Solution: I switched from Bare Essentuals to Everyday Minerals, and I wash my makeup brush with my face cleanser before I use it each time. I also experimented with this regiment: I left out the egg mask step for
