  1. Excellent Cleanser for Reducing Acne!

    This is such a great deep cleanser! It cleans away dirt and oil very thoroughly yet it's the most gentle and non irritating cleanser I've ever used. It's also anti inflammatory which mean it can help get rid of acne. It's been a HUGE help for me! Thanks to this and the other Vicco product I use (see the reviews for Vicco Turmeric Ayurvedic Cream) I no longer deal with the nightmare that is acne! I definitely recommend it.
  2. Stopped my adult cystic acne problems!

    So I've been using this cream for a little over a year and I couldn't be happier with the results! Other then the odd pimple here and there, I don't have to deal with the annoyance of stubborn acne that wasn't being helped by anything else I had tried before (I was worried I was going to have to start taking more drastic measures but thankfully, it didn't have to come to that). It feels great on my skin too. Really soothing, refreshing and moisturizing without the risk of clogged pores. It does
  3. aluminum zirconium tetrachlorohydrex gly (and any other aluminum derivatives), a common ingredient in antiperspirant. http://www.livestrong.com/article/201752-the-effects-of-aluminum-on-the-skin/ Even though you put it on your underarms, it can cause rashes and irritations in other parts of the body as well.
  4. Seasonal shifts in my experience do cause changes in my skin. Before I got my acne under control, my skin was always better in the summer and worse in the fall\winter.
  5. Have you tried the usual diet changes they talk about here on the forums? Like avoiding dairy and going gluten free? For me it's not caused by a food intolerance. It was most likely aluminum zirconium tetrachlorohydrex gly (common ingredient in antiperspirant) that caused my acne among other things. Try and avoid aluminum ingredients anyway because it clogs pores. If you're sure it's not food related, see if you can get tested for metal allergies. They can cause inflammation just like food
  6. I haven't updated this in a while! Mostly because there hasn't been much to report. My face still continues to do well with the Vicco products. I came in here with a likely source of the inflammation that caused my adult acne in the first place. Not a food allergy, which seems to be a common cause of acne, but an allergy to an ingredient in my antiperspirant. From past experience and my most recent non-acne rash breakout, I've found I have an allergy to aluminum zirconium tetrachlorohydrex
  7. I'm a girl and although my skin could be much worse even at it's peak, I let it make me think the worse of myself. In thepast couple of years, I just accepted that my skin is how it is and learn a lot about my self. My long distance boyfriend and I started out as friends on FB. He had his own non acne related struggles and told me he felt he didn't have to hide how he was feeling from me. He knows I have trouble with my skin and it's not an issue in the least. Bottom line is find some one y
  8. Which ever you prefer but it'll be less running around if you go to a dermatologist and hopefully you'll get answers sooner. Good luck in finding out what going on!
  9. That must be why you're so oily then. This summer is hot too and It's been one of the more humid one's we've had in a long time. For some reason, my face doesn't really sweat - it oils. I'm really amazed the pimple situation isn't any worse right now. Try keeping your skin as cool as you can and hopefully the weather will improve for both of us soon. Fingers crossed the cream kicks in and you become less sensitive to the smell.
  10. It doesn't look inflamed enough to be cancerous from what I've seen of skin cancer photos. Do get it checked though because a year is way too long for an ordinary pimple. A doctor would know what to do about it.
  11. Less is definitely more with this cream. Hopefully you don't feel like you're tasting Buckley's cough syrup. That's the most terrible thing I've ever tasted. The taste was almost like the smell of household ammonia. It does work on tough coughs but yuck! Never again. For the record Buckley's doesn't have sandalwood oil in it. How's the climate where you are? Heat and humidity can be horrible for bringing out oiliness in my experience.
  12. I was reading about magnesium deficiency and its causes. Some of them are eerily similar to some of the diet related causes of acne. Even stress can cause a magnesium deficiency. Has there ever been any studies on a possible link between the two? Here's the article I was reading about magnesium deficiency: http://www.ancient-minerals.com/magnesium-deficiency/need-more/
  13. Hi thank you for the answer is it non comedogenic? Yes but use it very sparingly and thin it with water by applying it when your face is still slightly wet if you find it's too rich. Just so you know, it has a smell from the sandalwood which is a little overwhelming if you're not used to it.
  14. Wow, maybe you're sensitive to certain scents. It was a little crazy when I first started using it. I didn't know what to think myself but I was desperate too. I just wanted the acne gone. I barely smell it now after a number of tubes so I think I developed a tolerance. The Thing is, You don't need much. A pea sized amount is enough to cover my whole face so use it very sparingly if you put it on just your nose. Try putting it on while your skin is still wet which will thin the cream out a bit a
