  1. Wow! That's great that you found something that works for you. Your scars have faded. Keep it up!
  2. My forehead also got those tiny bumps too when I used differin. They appeared after 3 weeks of usage and went away after 3-4 more weeks.
  3. FYI, I didn't see real results until the last week of January 07. I started on Oct 31 2006. I use the cream version of differin. Just continue using it. I use differin everywhere on my face except the skin around my eyes and near my nose. These are too sensitive.
  4. Bobbi Brown Oil Free Liquid Foundation works best for me. I was using Bare Minerals Powder Foundation...and that made my acne worse. I got cysts from it. The mineral veil caused my face to become so dry that I got flakes and started to peel. This is bad because it'll clog pores which lead to more pimples. I also use a lot more moisturizer now than before. I was scared to use moisturizer on my face thinking it would cause more pimples. Have you gotten your jojoba oil yet? I love that stuff
  5. Jojoba oil made my skin less oily by 50%. This is after 1.5 weeks of usage. I was using Cetaphil Moisturizer before. Keep in mind I am in my 30s...so my skin will be less oily.
  6. I second that! I am so glad that Smoothie wrote about it in her log. It totally helped with the redness and my face isn't as oily anymore. Wish I had found about this long time ago.
  7. Glad your skin recovered from the procedure. Looks great!
  8. Tried the jojoba oil today. It's so light! I love it. My face wasn't that sticky which the Cetaphil does to my face. The makeup does go on smoothly. I was scared it wouldn't.
  9. You don't have any problems with your makeup over the jojoba oil?
  10. I am so happy for you. Looks like your regimen is working. My doctor prescribed my mino too, but it caused really bad dizziness for me after just 3 days of usage. I told him the dizziness was so bad that I had to take 1 week off of work and he didn't seem to care because he actually told me if I can continue on with it. My new doctor prescribed me cleocin-T in the AM and differin in the PM. I went back to see her a couple of weeks ago and she really wants me to try oral antibiotics. She pr
  11. Lips cracked? Are you sure that this is related to differin and not the cold weather? It is winter now assuming you do live in the northern part of the equator. I use clindamycin topical (Cleocin-T) and that helped eliminate a massive IB. My acne is considered moderate. I couldn't even count the amount of zits I have using my fingers before I started using differin. Hmmm...you use Biotherm too along with the BP and then wash it off. Isn't that like washing your face 2x in the morning? Th
  12. Hi Smoothie, deebubs is right. Don't give up. I also get cysts too. I've been using differin for about 11 weeks now and it has helped me a lot. I've been using it at night too. I did break out after using it, but my zits were a lot smaller. My cysts were huge! They were the size of my pinky nail. Before differin, I usually get 5 cysts a week including other forms of acne (pastules/white heads). I couldn't even count the amount of zits I had with my fingers...it was like 15-20 zit
  13. Yes, Differin has helped my overall complexion. I use to have very tiny bumps on my forehead and cheeks..and now it is smooth. I also use to break out every week...seems my skin was out of control. I was getting oily during the initial weeks I used Differin, but that's bcos I was putting moisturizer on my face all the time for fear it may dry out.
