  1. hey man so im kinda going through a weird time right now in terms that i dont know whats working and what's not and if MAYBE i'm growing out of my acne ... here's the story the beginning of the month i starting drinking pure peppermint tea for stomach problems - 1 cup every morning and i dunno if it was pure coincidence but my acne started clearing up asap but at the same time all the oil production on my entire body seemed to slow itself down .. like no more oil slik when i wake up in the morn
  2. hey everyone i've just started using jojoba oil on saturday just at night ... i usually have extremely oily skin and have used everything including accutane to try to tame my oily skin and acne - i normally do not get cysts but a lot of imflammatory acne and blackheads So i started using jojoba oil on saturday night and woke up sunday with great feeling skin and looking better already. I also usually have redness across the nose and cheeks and even that seemed to have faded. So i continued t
  3. DAY 11 so i've taken three 40mg pills still keeping it at an approximate dose of 10mg / day. and not sure of what to make of it so far. it seems like my skin on my face in getting dry and lips are getting dry but doesn't that seem a bit too soon??? maybe not i'm not sure. Dunno if this is normal but it almost seems like things are starting to get pushed outta my face slowly, and not even as a pimple but just as harden oil it looks like. like if i scratch over the spot the 'oil' or whatev
  4. hey thats soo great to hear and i'm so glad that its worked so well for you. i actually just started 10mg/day on sunday and am keeping a log and will probably (or hopefully if it starts to work, will be on it for like 8-9 months or so like you !!!!!) I just started a log on here also so i'll keep that posted ... umm but i was just wondering what side effects you experienced and about when they started if you can remember .. and i guess also what side effects, if any, that you are experiencing n
  5. so i started on this past sunday june 3rd with a 40mg tablet. i got prescribed 40mg by a doctor when i was away at school a couple months back and got it filled but never started it b/c i heard back that i had finally gotten an appointment with a well known renoun derm in my city and my derm said that i can start out with using these 40mg every four days and see how it goes to save some money off the bat but he said after a month or so depending he might switch it over to 10mg/day b/c it'll kee
  6. hey everyone, i havent been a memeber on here for that long but have found that this site has really helped me with a lot of things so decided to try to contribute with this 'experimental dosage' that my derm and i have both heard and researched. I used to have real bad acne and a few years ago went on 40mg/day accutane and was 100% clear but then got it back (not as bad) a few months after i finished. My skin was in good shape though within a year after i stopped, but then around about the s
  7. hey i'm from canada and was just wondering if anyone has ever tried any Marcelle products and either had or did not have any luck with them. They look good and are a reasonable price but i wanted to see if anyone had any opinions before giving them a shot.
  8. hey i was just wondering what anyone thinks about the Cliniderm products, espcially snow queens opinion. lol i use salicylic acid at night and during the day i cant seen to find a moisturizer that doesnt completely make my face blindingly shiny lol. I don't have dry skin just have unfortunately really oily but real sensitive skin . Also I hate finding/trying cleansers b/c when i use a gel (non-foaming) cleanser i have a bunch of dried up oil that i can see right in the pores that all just c
  9. You're totally right, I'm not totally clear yet but the Spectro Jel bp was in the exact kinda bottle that the Neutrogena on the Spot comes in and I was using one finger but zigzag pattern like Dan shows and when I switched to Dan's bp i immediately started using almost a full finger and now I am using a full finger like he says to get up too. That prolly explains the redness and kinda the 'starting over' effects eh?? but would you all recommend then that I keep pushing through and using the ful
  10. Hmm those seem VERY similar, as in they are the same name but packaging looks different. There are three different ones in the line I'm using, Light Fluid, Medium (for normal to combination), and Cream (for dry skin) but I'm not sure if the packaging and such changes between countries --- Where are you from??? but if you go to google.com type in La Roche Posay, click on Canada (you can try afterwards to click on ur own country after you know exactly which one I'm talking about to see if they h
  11. hey i've been using the regime for a little while (ie. about a few weeks or so) and I'm using Spectro Jel (purple) to cleanse, Dan's BP and La Roche Posay Toleriane Moisturizer for Normal to Combinaiton skin and just added in a day or so ago cleansing my face using the same cleanser but using these exfoliating gloves that I saw at shopper's drug mart and the red marks seem to be already fading (nothing huge yet but more then I've seen without them). To be honest I'm not totally clear at all bu

  13. Thanks for the advice, I just tried jojoba oil about a week ago though, even though it may have just been the initial purge, I broke out like mad two nights after starting it all over my face which i never usually break out everywhere all at once. So i decided to stop it for the time being and as soon as i quit and only used the BP the acne started to reduce the first night. I went this morning actually and bought a set of those exfoliating gloves and used them very gently just on my forehea
