  1. That is awesome! I'm glad you found something that works for you. I am close to your age (33 years old) and I've dealt with acne on and off for over 20 years. I had a horrible bout of cystic acne this past year that has left me with some small indented scars here and there. I started getting it under control when I regularly exfoliated my face with Aveeno Positively Radiant cleansing pads. I finally bought some of Dan's BP gel and started using it a few days ago and it works great! I highl
  2. I've been using the 3-in-1 one for a few weeks now. I don't notice a huge difference in my skin. It is smoother. I'm undecided on if I'll purchase this again. I've also been using the scrub in this line. Again, I'm not too sure how much this is helping. I'm still getting pimples, but they aren't too bad right now. I have one trying to come up (a lovely under the skin pimple ) and three almost healed ones and one that is just starting to heal. Not too bad. But my period is coming next w
  3. Oh wow!!! I believe she asked and noticed you because your skin must've looked so healthy and glowy! :angel: She was probably looking for someone with really nice skin for Mary Kay and found you. Wow.... i reckon you should go ahead with it, see if you like it or not. Hopefully they dont get pushy into buying the products. Yeah, I'll see what she has to say when/if she calls me. You know, it's funny you said I must have looked glowy because just the other day my husband said "You're sk
  4. I just had to share my experience with this makeup. I was out shopping today and a lady who was standing in front of me in the check out lane told me I have beautiful skin and asked me what I used. I was taken aback since I've been battling acne for quite a while and have the scars to prove it (some brown marks from hyperpigmentation). Without Everyday Minerals my skin looks horrible. I wasn't sure if she meant skin treatments or makeup so I told her I use mineral makeup but I neglected to t
  5. Hi Emma! I used to use Klear Action and it worked well for me for a while then quit working. Everybody is different so you may not have the same reaction. You can use a moisturizer after your 3 steps. The acne repair lotion does need to be applied all over your face to help prevent future acne from forming. And yes, you usually do need to keep doing the system if you want to stay clear. Sometimes people's body chemistry changes and they no longer need acne products. I went through a glo
  6. I had PRK done March 2006. It was SOOOO worth it. I was blind as a bat before (over -7 in the left and over -6 in the right eye). I opted for PRK over Lasik because I didn't like the idea of a flap being cut in my eye. They can lift the flap years later if need be and I didn't like the idea that a flap in my eye could be dislodged. PRK has a much longer healing time so you don't see immediate results like with Lasik. The first few days were torture too. I was in intense pain for the first
  7. The Neutrogena Oil Free Acne Stress Control 3-in-1 Hydrating Acne Treatment works pretty well for me. I used to have quite a bumpy forehead and now it's almost completely smooth!
  8. I got my aspirin from the dollar store. It is uncoated. It didn't specifically say "uncoated", but if it doesn't say "coated" you can pretty much assume it is uncoated. All I have to do with mine is add a few drops of water to them and they immediately start to break down.
  9. I can completely relate. I thought my face was clearing up quite nicely and then boom! I got 3 cystic pimples last weekend. One on my chin, one on my cheek near my mouth and one on the side of my face. I just don't get it. Anywho, they are healing up nicely since I started slathering my face with 10% BP. Yeah, it may be overkill, but I didn't feel the 5% was cutting it. My face is starting to clear up again but I won't get my hopes up b/c I know better!
  10. I hope all goes well for you! Btw, you resemble Jim from The Office in those pictures.
  11. I just saw Transformers last night. I wasn't blown away by it. Anyway, I noticed that the dark haired girl that Sam (Shia LaBeouf) was interested in didn't have the greatest skin. It kinda made me feel better about mine. Although she didn't have 3 monster zits on her face like I do!
  12. I stopped taking my fish and flaxseed oil supplement about 2 weeks ago. I was taking the TheraTears Nutrition capsules for my dry eyes. I had read that fish oil and flaxseed oil were good for acne as well so I figured that was a plus. Well, my skin has been horrible for months and for months I have been taking those capsules. I finally occurred to me one day - what if these capsules are actually contributing to my acne? Ever since I stopped taking them, my skin has improved. I haven't gott
  13. I used them once at night and once in the morning, but my face was already used to BP. If you're just starting to use BP then I'd suggest once a day, perhaps at night. I, by the way, really like the power pads - they're convenient and effective.
  14. Hello all! I just bought the 3-in-1 treatment stuff yesterday and used it last night before bed. It went on nicely and felt good. It smelled good too! I can't really say it did much over night though. The pimples I have are about the same. I can't comment on the redness because the pimples weren't really red to begin with. Anyway, I was hoping someone would come back and update us on how the 3-in-1 acne treatment is working for them!
